Joshua "杨光Sunshine" Galima’s Words of Inspiration
Hmmm...

I don't know why I am led to write this. It might make some people angry....but like they say in Chinese.. 我不在乎...哈哈哈。

I've seen this before, and while it "sounds good" I'll explain why I disagree with it.

"When you carry the Bible, Satan gets a headache. When you open it, he collapses. When he sees you reading it, he faints. When he sees that you are living what you read, he flees."

Satan gets a headache when he sees you carry a Bible?

- Satan knows the Bible front and back, heck, even better than most of us. (Case in point, he used it against Jesus)
-The pharisees knew the whole Old Testament front and back, yet when the Author stood in front of them, Jesus even said they were of their father the devil. (LOL!)
-So I'm also guessing that wearing a Cross or having a Cross tattoo will also make the devil flee? Funny how even non-believers have them. Also funny how in some horror movies Crosses have no effect. Its true, "Crosses" have no effect.

When you open it, he collapses. When he sees you reading it, he faints?

- Are you sure? If this were true, why is it millions of people were slaughtered in the name of "God" with the "Bible" as their justification? Seeing death happening around actually pleases satan.
- What are you reading? Are you reading the Law over and over again? The ministry of Condemnation and death? Actually satan would LOVE for you to read that over and over again, to be conscious of the Law, to become sin conscious like those in the Old Testament because they had no Jesus to atone for their sins.
- Even if you read the New Testament, Jesus mentions the Law to its purity. One can read that and try to apply that, they fail, and they become self-condemned.

When he sees that you are living what you read, he flees.

- This is the ONLY line that holds any merit...BUT, it depends what you are living.
- Are you living in the Law and this "works" mentality? Or are you living under Radical Grace?
- Are you living under guilt and condemnation where you think that Papa is judging you for your sins, and every time you make a mistake you must confess everything? Or are you living under the freedom that even though you fail, you realize that Papa has taken every sin, every disease, every failure, and given you His Robe, His Body, and His Love?

Here I'll give a better line:

When satan sees that YOU see that you are the Righteousness of God in Christ, when he sees that YOU see how much Papa loves you, when he sees YOU open His Word to see Jesus and His Loveliness and Finished Work where you confess it with your mouth, (because satan doesn't know your thoughts) THEN you just resisted the devil and he fled from you. Satan cannot disturb a believer who knows and believes full well what Papa has done for them.

:D :D :D :D

Elisabeth Gulde  Thanks, Joshua, for sharing this. It`s so true and I agree !! Amen and Amen. Christian people often speak out something that "sounds good", but when you investigate it, you see, that it is not true.

Erik Almeida  Amen brother! Faith comes by hearing and hearing the words of Christ. Our faith is not built up by reading the law, but by reading and applying the words of Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. His words give life, while the law (as you pointed out) is the ministry of death and condemnation. Let's choose life!
