Looking at Codependency as a Spiritual Matter

 

"Having any dealings with a reprobate is extremely dangerous. We often delude ourselves into thinking that if we treat all people with kindness and love, they will respond in kind. In most cases, this is true, but not when dealing with a reprobate. Reprobates do not respond to love and kindness, except to interpret it as vulnerability or weakness on your part and use it against you to dominate you.  

In our pride, we must not think ourselves able to control or deal with that which the Lord himself will not. If the perfect love of our Father cannot soften the reprobate’s heart, wasting our love on him is meaningless. If the Holy Spirit cannot turn the reprobate’s heart to God, nothing we are capable of doing will have any effect. If the Blood of Jesus cannot save a reprobate, we surely cannot. 

This is because we are not dealing with a human spirit anymore, but with demons. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places….Ephesians 6:12KJV. A reprobate is a demonic person, who has given Satan complete control over his will. His mind, his heart, and his soul belong to the devil, and the devil is not going to let him go." - Reverend Renee Pittelli

Notice that the above excerpt talks about allowing pride to delude oneself into thinking that she has some kind of power to change an individual who has completely given himself over to evil. This is often the plight of an individual who struggles with "codependency." 

From a spiritual aspect, a codependent person struggles with a primary issue of pride and a secondary issue with the spirit of rejection. She is essentially placing herself above the Heavenly Father in her idea of her own power. This is fleshly (egotistical), and in some cases, it can be a sign of demonic oppression. The kingdom of darkness seeks to devour all people of light. Thus, investing love and time into a member of that kingdom can be devastating, to say the least.   

Only one entity has the power to change a person. It is possible, as with the story of Nebuchadnezzar (basically a narcissist), but it is up to the Heavenly Father whether He wants to continue to deal with that person or not. The codependent cannot fix or help that individual, no matter how hard she tries. All the love she could ever muster would never be enough to change that person. 

Additionally, she would continue to expose herself to additional breaches, spiritual vulnerabilities, and oppression each time she succumbed to the spirit of pride and the sins of idolatry and spiritual adultery (spending more time trying to change this person than spending with "God," placing this person as a priority in her life, associating herself with an evil individual, etc.). 

There is hope for a codependent in repentance and deliverance from the spirits of pride and rejection. The narcissist is a completely different entity, who also has an issue of pride, but is not malleable in the least. The only thing one can do with such a person is to let him go, work out her own salvation, and turn the situation over to "God."

Obedience and the Desire to Be Obedient Come From the Spirit

 


Romans 8:1-2 KJV

"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."

Pay attention to all the words in this verse. Who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Walking after the Spirit is a daily choice. We don't always walk in the Spirit like we're supposed to, now do we? We still have naughty little disobedient flesh that opposes our spirits every single day, and as such, we have to make the conscious choice to walk after the Spirit — every single day. Our own actions will tell us what we've been walking after. 

Walking after the Spirit: being faithful, revering "God," submitting oneself to "God," praising and worshiping Him, being obedient, being loving and kind, being peaceful, being prayerful, studying Scripture, having self-control, annihilating one's pride and self-pursuits, etc. 

Walking after the flesh: being sexually immoral, coveting, hating one's brother or sister, lying, loving money or the world, seeking vengeance, stealing, dishonoring holy days, idolizing, reviling, practicing sorcery/witchcraft, and so on. People can and do fall into temptation sometimes, but no such sin will rule over the believer. 

1 John 1:9 NIV

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."

This verse was written to people who were already "in Christ." The entire book encourages them not to practice sin, but this particular verse explains the provision. So there is a provision, but it's not to be taken advantage of, because yes, it appears that there is a point at which one could end up being fresh out of a sacrifice and covering: 

Hebrews 10:26-27

"If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God."

No one knows when that might occur and when he or she might become a spiritually dead and darkened reprobate instead of a man or woman of "God." So it's always wise for individuals to walk after the Spirit and let it fill them with the desire to overcome until the end. Believers can do all things through "Christ" and not a single thing without him.

A Message From Our Sponsor: Fight Music With Music


"Always have some good Gospel music on your playlist. Try to find a brother or sister who has an extremely loud singing voice and yells words such as Faith, HalleluYAH, Heaven, Amazing Grace, the Father's name, the Son's name, or any biblical terms.

Alternatively, you can download one of those good old-time negro spirituals sung by a very large, breathy woman of faith. Download a volume booster to your device after downloading your spiritual tune. 

If someone forces you to listen to unpleasant satanic music in your home/work/shopping environment, simply whip out your mobile phone and immediately play such a song at the highest volume capacity. You don't need to leave. Just blow it right back at them. 

Alternative: Sing it yourself and get a friend, acquaintance, church pal, or coworker to join in. Set it off even if no one else is available to assist you. Just start singing all kinds of Holy Halleluyahs and whatnot, right in front of whoever releases the demonic music into the atmosphere. Don't worry about experiencing any repercussions or retaliation from such people. You'll be just fine because of the strength of 'He who is in you.'

It's time to start being as bold and unapologetic as they are." 

**They = all of your spiritual enemies, no matter the skin color.**

Are We Artists Using Our Musical Talents the Right Way?

 

Every person in creation was given a talent or several talents. That includes you, musical artist. You have qualities and talents that were assigned to you for kingdom work. You have a unique voice, the ability to play an instrument, a creative mind to write lyrics, or all three. If you find yourself constantly being called to make music, then it's your thing  from "God." Your success or lack of success in the world doesn't change that. 

Don't let anyone else tell you you're not supposed to do that, or you're not "good enough" to do that for some reason or another (too old, too young, too skinny or fat, not pretty or handsome enough, your voice doesn't sound like artist XYZ, you don't have special equipment, etc.). "God" made you just the way you are — voice and all — and He loves to hear it. You keep returning to music because He built you for it. You may not be using it for its intended purpose at the moment, however. 

Praise and worship are the names of the game. You were designed to praise the Creator. How many times does the Bible say to lift up your voice and sing praise to "God?" How many times does it talk about playing instruments and such? 

So if you have a skill and a relentless desire related to music, that means you're part of the praise team. That's why you always feel like you want to sing, speak out (rap), and pass an important message. That's why you yearn to do those things every day of your life. It's embedded into you, and no one will ever remove it from you, though many may have tried.  

Artists' messages easily get distorted in this fallen world, though. Sometimes, we let our flesh (anger, resentment, hurt, pride, lust, etc.) write the songs instead of letting our spirits guide us. Sometimes, our intentions get skewed due to the "wiles" of certain evicted former Heavenly praise team leaders. 

The messages get flipped upside down. The purpose becomes about gratifying ourselves or gaining the approval of others. Then the music becomes nothing more than the pursuit of fame, worldly relevance, or money — and those things come at a very high price.

Artist, music is one of the most powerful elements that exist. Every musical composition has a spirit, and every lyric that comes from your mouth affects yourself and others. You can either edify or hellify your listeners with your songs, but you can't serve two masters. 

Only two kinds of music exist: the kind that gives glory to "God" and the kind that gives glory to everything else. Genre doesn't matter. No single genre is an "evil" genre, and no single genre is a "godly" genre. 

Both the music itself and the lyrics have spiritual elements in them that can be good or bad. Thus, you must be careful of where your beats originate if you use other people's music. Evaluate it real quick and drop it like a bad habit if it makes you feel a certain type of way that's other than your authentic self. Been there. The spiritual influence of music is 100 percent real.

Former bad@ss rap/rock persona: Inspired by music. Talked a lot of prideful foolishness. "I'm hot. I'm this. I'm that. Bow down to the queen," etc.

Authentic self: Can still rap, but is neither bad@ss nor self-exalting.

If the music gives glory to wicked things, it is of "the evicted one." If the music gives glory to the self, it's about the same as giving glory to the evicted one. How do you feel about that, musical artist? You can't do anything except repent about anything you've already produced, but what kind of music will you release next? What kind of impact will you make if you're blessed with the breath of life tomorrow?

God Already Has Your Rap Sheet

 

Our Savior gave the Ultimate Sacrifice to cover all types of sins. Remember that when other people try to make you feel lowly about an area that's sensitive for you. Other people tend to speak the words of the enemy — the accuser who influences them. The spiritual objective is to shame an unsaved person from ever repenting or shame a child of "God" into believing that he or she is not such a person. Steal, kill, destroy. 

All sins lead to death, and all people have committed sins. We cannot justify any of them on our own, even if we think we committed them with "good" or "pure" intentions. Additionally, none is set at a higher degree than the others, except for blaspheming the Holy Spirit. 

A male liar, slanderer, envier, vengeance seeker, adulterer, fornicator, lover of money, etc., is at the same risk for spiritual death as a woman who has had several husbands. A person who lies one time will go the same pit of hell as someone who has lied a million times without repenting. However, all sinners have been thrown a lifeline through the Ultimate Sacrifice.  

The fourth chapter of the Book of John tells a story about "Jesus" and the woman at the well. That story is one of many stories that give a crystal clear depiction of our Savior's love for us and his desire to give us life despite our sins. 

The woman at the well wasn't even one of the Yehudim. She was of another ethnicity, and she wondered why he even spoke to her. Well, because he came to save all who would repent, accept him, believe in him, and bear witness to his greatness. 

The woman at the well had had five husbands in her lifetime, and she had a current relationship with a man who wasn't her husband at all. The world most likely saw her as a useless lowlife, no matter the reasons her marriages didn't work. 

We don't know why they didn't work, what the woman felt for those men, or what she may have gone through with them. All we know is that she was a sinner, and "Jesus" knew of those sins. Here's what's remarkable, though: 

He knew everything about her — every last detail — but he did not shun her for her sins. He did not call her dirty names or put her in a lower category of sinners than everyone else. Instead, he offered her his Living Water — the kind that would quench her thirst for love until the end of time.

This story explains the nature of our Savior quite clearly. It explains that he knows us all and what we have done. In this case, it explains that he knows all the sins we are still committing as well. 

It explains that it does not matter what race or gender we are or whether other people see us as valueless outcasts. It doesn't matter if we were married two times or 110 times if they weren't godly marriages. 

It doesn't matter if we lied once or idolized another human being a million times — lusted after money, fame, success, or power one time, or let pride rule our lives 10 times. We have all sinned much more than we ever realized. Every last one of us had/has a sin debt too great for us to pay on our own. But the Living Water was/is still available to us. 

He still made that sacrifice to cancel our debts. And if we have repented, accepted him, acknowledged him, and testified to his existence, then we are well on our way to being molded, refined, and perfected by His grace and pace. 

No human being can undo what "God" has already done or stop a process He has already started. No "devil" can "tell on us" or talk Our Father into rescinding His invitation because of our former sins. He's all-knowing, so He already has our rap sheet. 

The lifeline is still available to those who have not yet repented as well. There's still a chance if you are still breathing. No matter what the sin is or how many times it has been done, the sacrifice can cover it. Once you are adopted into the Heavenly Family, you are no longer known by any other names but blessed and beloved. 

Your name will no longer be thief, whore (or the urban version), gigolo, killer, idol worshiper, false-god follower, backstabber, gossiper, non-believer, liar, loser, N-word, B-word, drug addict, drug dealer, alcoholic, gambling fiend, dummy, worthless, or anything else for that matter. It will be Yah's son or daughter, who was once lost but has now been found and forgiven.

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides One Week Review: We've Got Hair!

 

The first 5-ounce container of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides lasted exactly one week. All allergic nasal and eye reactions to the product have ceased. 

After using it for a week, our product tester gave it a thumbs up for the extreme energy boost and the hair growth. She saw a significant amount of hair growth in that one short week. It's very easy for her to tell when her hair grows because of the amount of dark hair she sees under the honey blond or platinum (depends on the pigmentation) mop-top.

Her facial features seemed to decline rapidly after the surgery as her body struggled to heal from the procedure and the foreign anesthetics and intravenous pain medications. The dietary changes that began in about April of 2021 improved that significantly. The product may improve it even more.  

Raw selfie pictures now appear to look livelier, but it's still too early to say that the product actually removes any lines. There is a difference, but we can't call it significant just yet. She is now on her second container, and this one should last two weeks. We'll give a full report after eight weeks.

The product tester uses only 20 grams, which is two scoops a day. This is in addition to the Decadent Chocolate-flavored Purely Inspired Organic Protein that gives her 22 grams of other proteins as well as a probiotic. 

These items are blended together in a smoothie that contains spinach, avocado, banana, almond milk, peanut butter, and honey if she's got it. The smoothie is darn good, and it helps her meet her daily protein and caloric needs. Weight was 123 last time checked. 

**Note: The version of the Unflavored Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides found in some of the physical stores does not contain the vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. You must read the label to check if you want those items included.**

Don't Keep Explaining Yourself to Other People

 


What Should You Do When Someone Keeps Accusing You and Calling You out of Your Name?


Explaining yourself to other people and trying to convince them of who you are is a waste of valuable time and energy. It can also be a form of bondage because you could end up spending a lifetime trying to prove yourself to other flawed humans. 

All people are flawed, and as such, not one human being can judge you or assign you a name or attribute that doesn't belong to you. No human is omnipotent or omnipresent, either. Thus, no one can tell you where you've been or what you've done or haven't done at all times. Other people do not know what is in your heart, either. You can tell them, but they can choose to believe the opposite. 

Therefore, you should never argue with someone who chooses to view you as this when you are that or that when you are this. Simply disagree out loud or in your own mind and walk away, for that person is blind to your inner beauty. There is nothing fruitful in trying to get a blind person to see you clearly. No thank you.

Let that person hold onto his or her image of you while you continue to live in your truth. That person chooses to believe another entity's wicked whispers, and he or she has the free will to choose to do that.

You only need to answer to the name the Sovereign One gave you. You won't need to explain yourself because He already knows who you are, where you've been, where you haven't been, how far you've come, and where you're going. 

Shake the dust off your feet and move on when other people do not receive you as who you are or hear your words as you've spoken them. You don't need to be angry with those other people for their choices when you exit. You only need to be done.
