L’identité chrétienne aujourd’hui

Éphésiens 4:24 dit « Et revêtir l’homme nouveau, créé selon Dieu dans une justice et une sainteté que produit la vérité ».

Qu’est-ce que nous n’entendons pas de la bouche des chrétiens aujourd’hui? Mensonges sur leur propre identité spirituelle et naturelle. Dans les conflits et dans les guerres d’opinions sur les paroles du Christ adressées aux chrétiens-croyants et sur des croyances chrétiennes d’aujourd’hui qui se répètent à plusieurs reprises et inutilement s’enlisent dans des débats stériles. L’identité du chrétien n’est valable que dans le christianisme (religieusement). Qu’est-ce que cela veut dire ? Alors que ce dernier ne justifie pas les conflits intermittents qui s’installent autour du christianisme, et qui désavantagent les chrétiens, n’est-il pas écrit dans le livre de Jacques 1:22 « Ne vous contentez pas de l’écouter, mais faites ce qu’elle dit, sinon, vous vous tromperez vous-mêmes ». 

En ce qui concerne la religion, il est écrit que « la religion pure et sans tâche devant Dieu le Père consiste à rendre visite aux orphelins et aux veuves dans leur affliction, et se garder loin du monde »

Ils ont répondu à la même question : Qui est Chrétien ? 

Nyota Ludjwera, une chrétienne de la RDC, dit : « Un chrétien est celui qui marche selon la parole de Dieu, celui qui pratique les Écritures comme signe de la connaissance du bien et du mal et qui fait le bien».

Gastonella Benjamin-Mankou, une jeune fille de 24 ans de la ville de Brazzaville, déclare qu’un chrétien est une personne qui a sa fondation en Dieu. C’est une personne qui a une foi folle en celui qui l’a racheté avec le plus grand sang à la Croix, c’est-à-dire Jésus-Christ, qui, malgré les épreuves, tourne toujours son regard vers Jésus en qui il a mis toute sa confiance et croit fermement ».

Le chrétien selon le Christ, le Messie

Le mot Chrétien a d’abord été utilisé dans Antioche, comme le livre d’Actes 11:26 nous révèle.

Wikipédia a également défini le Chrétien comme une personne qui adhère à la religion dérivée de Jésus de Nazareth, le christianisme, et qui suit son enseignement rapporté dans les Évangiles. https://fr.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/chrétien

Jésus-Christ est mort dans la chair, pas dans l’esprit. Il a ainsi montré au monde que pour lui, le Seigneur et Sauveur, le Messie, est venu dans le monde pour mourir à la place de celui  et celle qui a été précédemment condamné à mourir dans la chair et l’esprit à cause de ses péchés. Il dit alors que quiconque croit en lui doit aussi mourir dans la chair afin que lui, le Christ, puisse trouver sa place dans le cœur, dans l’âme, dans l’esprit et le corps de celui-là et de celle-la. Au-delà de cette condition, même si nous nous déclarons chrétiens devant le monde, pendant que le Christ ne vit pas en nous, ainsi le monde nous appellera « hypocrites », « pharisiens », « menteurs ». Combien de choses charnelles ne renonçons-nous pas à abandonner pour laisser Christ prendre la place du chrétien qu’on a déclaré  être, en donnant toute notre vie à Christ et nous repentir du péché.  

Le Messie est le oint-sacré, celui qui doit venir. Le Christ, le Messie, a donné dès le début un profil typique du chrétien qu’il veut voir dans le monde pour éclairer les ténèbres. Il appelle le chrétien « croyant » ; « Enfants », « bien-aimés ». Il n’y a pas de meilleur profil ou de meilleure identité spirituelle et naturelle (de la personnalité) que ce que le Christ lui-même a déjà défini pour tous les chrétiens de l’humanité. Hélas, le chrétien ne se divise-t-il pas en lui-même, se forgeant une identité confortable pour lui ? En ce dernier, ils y ont construit une autre structure au sein du christianisme qui génère le chaos dans l’humanité, à l’intérieur de ce qui a déjà été préétabli par Dieu. 

Comme il est écrit dans le livre de Romains 8:9 “ Or, vous, vous ne suivez plus ces désirs, vous suivez l’Esprit de Dieu parce qu’il habite en vous. Si quelqu’un na pas l’Esprit du Christ, il n’appartient pas au Christ ». Ce verset est aussi simple que celui d’Actes 16:31, qui dit : «Crois au Seigneur Jésus, et toi et ta famille serez sauvés» et le célèbre passage de Jean 3:16. Ajoutons à cela, Marc 16:16, qui recommande le baptême. Est-ce dans l’eau ou dans l’esprit? Les deux baptêmes sont péremptoires pour remplir les conditions d’être appelé un chrétien-croyant, enfant de Dieu, bien-aimé de Dieu. Ainsi, Les livres de Jean 3, 5-9 et le livre des Romains parlent de l’identité du chrétien.

Ces différents profils des chrétiens dont Jésus Christ parle dans ses paroles :

  1. Le croyant chrétien : Il y a des chrétiens non-croyants, ils ne croient pas en Dieu alors qu’ils disent qu’ils croient. La Bible dit qu’ils ne sont pas différents des païens. Ce sont des hypocrites, ils se tiennent au coin des rues… Matthieu 23:13
  2. L’Enfant-Chrétien : Si vous faites comme l’un de ces enfants, le Royaume des Cieux est à vous. Comment peux-tu être comme un enfant quand tu es adulte ? Regardez les enfants, observez leur nature, admirez leur innocence, leur pureté et imitez-les. Matthieu 18:3
  3. Bien-aimés chrétiens : Il y a des chrétiens qui ne sont plus appréciés de Dieu à cause de leur vénération des choses et des idoles, de leur légèreté, de leur défaut, de leur ignorance, de leur négligence, de leur hypocrisie etc. Cependant les chrétiens bien-aimé de Dieu est celui qui s’efforce d’abord de plaire à Dieu dans toutes ses voies et de toutes ses forces. Y a-t-il encore ces modèles de chrétiens aujourd’hui ? Bien sûr, bien que peu nombreux, la porte est si étroite et peu entreront nous dit la parole de Dieu.

Le Bon Samaritain Chrétien (Luc 10:25-37) : est ici mis à part de cette liste parce que le bon samaritain est un modèle type pour hériter les Royaume des cieux. Le Christ a répondu à quelques questions de ses disciples, Maître, quel est le plus grand commandement ? (1) Vous aimerez votre Dieu de tout votre cœur, de toute votre âme, de tout votre esprit et force. Et voici le second, (2) vous aimerez votre prochain comme vous même. Il ajoute qu’il n’y a pas de plus grand commandement que ceux-ci. 

Pourquoi le chrétien d’aujourd’hui n’est-il plus autant persécuté, mais vénéré comme une idole, aimé de tous, loué partout et acclamé? Nous parlons ici aussi de pasteurs vénérés, d’évangélistes vénérés, de diacres vénérés, de prophètes et de prophétesses vénérés. Il y a moins de persécutions aujourd’hui dans la vie des chrétiens parce qu’ils se sont conformés aux normes de ce monde pour plaire aux rois et aux princes de ce monde, afin d’échapper à la souffrance, à l’humiliation, aux calamités, à la douleur et à la mort.

Certains mensonges ne viennent pas seulement de la bouche des païens, mais aussi des chrétiens eux-mêmes qui répandent et créent un univers confus et menaçant pour les bien-aimés de Dieu. Tels que ceux-ci:

1. Le Christ est déjà mort pour moi, je n’ai plus besoin de mourir pour personne

2. Nous sommes chrétiens, mais nous ne sommes pas idiots de laisser cela se produire, nous ferons ce qui nous plaît.

3. Nous devons nous venger 

4. Je vais mettre ma foi de côté et je vais aller “lui montrer de quel bois je me chauffe” *une expression hilarante de la Côte d’Ivoire*

Il y a tant de phrases qui ne devraient pas être dites par les croyants chrétiens. Malheureusement, c’est toujours le cas. Un mot rassurant qui dit : « Rien n’est impossible pour ceux qui croient». Et si nous mettons ce mot non seulement aux choses matérielles, mais plutôt à notre identité spirituelle et personnelle. Comme, supposez que la décision de ne plus prétendre plutôt d’Etre est possible de bien fonctionner quand vous le déclarez. Fumer ne doit pas être placé au-dessus du péché de se saouler, de mentir, d’adorer des idoles, d’envier, de critiquer, etc. La Bible dit qu’il n’y a pas de plus grand péché que l’autre. Autrement, nous nous permettrions certains péchés et d’autres nous les abandonnerions. Hélas, non, non !Le chrétien est une personne qui ne se doctrine à aucune religion, ni au christianisme d’ailleurs, qui ne se limite pas à croire que sa foi seule le sauve, mais qui s’efforce d’obéir à la parole de Dieu. Qui refuse de se confondre entre avoir la foi qui nous sauve et la parabole gardée du jugement dernier. Nous rendrons compte de nos péchés.

Discredited by the Past

Either you stay on victim mode or you choose to stand up for your life by restarting from where you are, to rebuild your future

Your past accusing you

Back at the time, until today indeed, when you’ve had a bad reputation either in society, at a workplace, at church, you’ll be backlisted in these areas. People goal-oriented tend not to be emotionally driven to see positive sides of the bad reputed people. Beside, they will look for the unknown ones who seems loyal, responsible, and goal-oriented like them.

Hearing yourself out

Counting down the days, hours until one day, the ones who are not accepted anymore in some areas of life such as workplace, friends circle, churches, are keen to be judged as “unfairly person”. Not any company kept a good record or souvenir of this last. Not any friend is feeling grateful for their friendship with this last one. Not any church seems to worry about this last one.

Calming your spirit by Gary Zukav advices

The truth is, as Gary Zukav said on Oprah Winfrey show, “either to fall in victim mode, better to look front at what you can do with your life or with what you got. Yes, life can be unfair, but, until you learn from mistakes and stand tall with hope, strength; and your life may go back on track. Is there any better option ? Not really, until you quit the victim mode.

Fair enough

Unfair? Yes. Possibly to regain confidence and value ? Yes. Yet, the past may accuse you from not being loyal, not being able to maintain your personality sync with the workplace or be likable by others, all these will change when you’ll have a better opinion about yourself, your worth, your dreams and you value. Not wait on what people say or what they choose to believe in.

Decision-Maker ?

Turn around, turn left, eat this, don’t eat that, stay here, go there. Haven’t you been in this situation for a long time? Indecision. That what you are but not who you are. Decisions are made as a result of something but not as a personalized identity. Perhaps, the challenge is conflicting with your future, either its a near future of going to a restaurant and having a problem to order a food or a far future of where you should be as per your destiny. Either the way, you made a short and long term decision. Where it all meet the solution of getting off of the victim mode and the unfair life.

The Purpose of Leadership

A good master is one who can serve others, in order to be served by them.

https://worldfinancialreview.com/authentic-leadership-from-theory-to-practice/

It has required every nation, organisation and today churches, individuals and educational institutions to understand this American concept of “leadership”. Is this mean that we are ruled by the great America? Not really. However, it’s means that Americans influence us. They empower the world. They promote positives values and ethics for the good governance of theirs states. Not to exclude the negatives sides of crimes, violence, and now injustice in some cases. But, promoting great impact in the world.

Leadership as they have defined it, its an act of leading (directing, managing) a group of people. This allows us to pin the “mentoring”, which is the unique aspect as a coach, a mentor, or a trainer. The leader is the person who show the way, who explain the way of doing, who transmit his philosophy, vision and or his mindset that will significantly impact his team.

How is Leadership special ?

Leading belongs to the greatness. Those with a big heart can lead, pass their knowledge to their team, empower them and make them becoming great or greater than them. The unique aspect of leadership is the outcomes of the influence a leader will accomplish in his team. That’s what makes it special. Through someone’s leadership, the persons he or she influences will have a “unique” vision of that leader.

What are the outcomes of someone driven by a good leadership?

It has to be either one individual or a group of people being guided, managed, directed by the leader. Each result of the leader’s actions will be scrutinized by these last ones. The only true outcome here is the leader who is firstly in the word of Christ. Love, compassion, serving, caring, patience. These characteristics will indeed not only have a spiritual impact in the people you’re leading but will leave a positive and unique mark in their whole life. Because the change that happen following the word of God is in the unique power of the Holy Spirit.

Your deliverance is in Jesus Christ, through YOURSELF

Your deliverance is in Jesus Christ. We say deliverance is freedom from imprisonment. When we are imprisoned, either by evil spirits, they torment us. It’s not that easy to talk about evil spirits, it is often embarrassing for some, they don’t want to be vulnerable by talking about these spirits that dwell in them, but they should first be recognized. How are you going to recognize evil spirits in you? First of all, here it is about evil spirits, (1) it takes awareness and (2) a burning desire to get rid of it as soon as possible.

Your deliverance is in you. You’re the image of Christ. Taking a conscious decision while you know what the truth voice is saving you.

Evil and / or demonic spirits are spirits as the name says it as well as spirits from the world of darkness, (of Satan). They are invisible, they are not palpable, not visible to the naked eye, we cannot see them these spirits, you cannot touch them, these are of spirits. However, they do materialize and become visible when they take BODY in a living being. It can be a human, an animal, even plants, demonic spirits are also in plants. Anything that lives can be possessed by evil spirits, anything that lives and breathes can be possessed by evil spirits and as long as they are in you or in these other living beings, they take possession of these beings instantly, they dictate their life, through their actions (deeds), words, thoughts etc.

What are these actions, words or thoughts that prove that you are inhabited by evil spirits. I start with what first touches the soul because in the soul, there are thoughts, feelings, needs, choices, decisions, ambitions, projects, goals, determination, and you know in the soul there is everything that relates to the destiny of a human, what should lead man to or towards his destiny.

1. Psychological or emotional demonic spirits: we must understand here that the Bible tells us in the book of Galatians 5: 13-16 « Brothers, you have been called to freedom only, do not make this freedom a pretext for living according to the flesh but live in charity, one servant and one another, for all the law is fulfilled in one word in this one you will love your neighbor as yourself but if you bite and devour each other others take care that you are not destroyed by one another; … walk according to the spirit and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh for the flesh has desires contrary to those of the spirit and the spirit has opposites to those of the flesh, they are opposed to each other so that you do not do what you want ”.

If you read these passages there, you discover that Paul makes an important point that in Christ Jesus, we no longer live according to the flesh; so what is the relationship between psychological, emotional and the demonic spirit? It is psychological and emotional because they are all linked by a mental state. And in the mind is all that is psychological. I further illustrate with the words of this verse in Romans 7: 14-22 and you can also read verses 23 to 25. The actions, words or behavior of a person inhabited by demonic psychological emotional spirits.

a) A depression which is a demonic spirit, when actually manifests itself in you becomes a pain, a trouble-fact, a sorrow, a misfortune for others. This is when your depression is demonic and takes over your life to destroy those around you. A sorcery can be conscious or unconscious, then when he does evil he destroys, so living in depression is also an evil spirit that makes you destructive.

b) A toxic nature. You are a toxic person, that is, a person who is not mentally in a peaceful environment. He is a person in the middle of others and brings a negative, unpleasant, discouraging, uneasy, attacking atmosphere and reactions. Pressure on others, excessive judgment, excessive criticism and in the end will denigrate you, will always look down on you and, will isolate you, which will create an unhealthy atmosphere around you, he will either do his best to distance you from others, in order to make you plunge into loneliness the better to destroy you mentally. Yet another toxic person is that he is going to do even more that will be to traumatize you, to demoralize you or to harass you.

2. The physical or carnal demonic spirits

c) Unhealthy intentions. By unhealthy intentions, that is to say, when you are in a group of persons for example, in a company, an employee with unhealthy intentions gets up and accuses you « falsely » or perhaps « reasonably » and who will now convince others that you are a bad employee, to the point of prompting your dismissal. It is the spirit of the devil « the accuser » also influences weak spirits to hate you. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, young people in politics are poisoned overnight.

1. Loneliness: you can’t stand anyone, you avoid everyone in short, you are in great solitude; it is a demonic spirit.

2. Shamelessness. You will not have sex with a man before marriage, you will not have sex with the person of the same sex as you.

3. Pride. You conclude by your thoughts that through your actions that you are better than others. Pride is also a demonic spirit, you may think that others do not deserve you, you place yourself very above others, look down on them and you often tell yourself that you do not mix with everybody. You don’t greet people. Read Isaiah 2:12 and Isaiah 3:16

4. Homosexuality. Leviticus 4:13. Although Jesus Christ reserves for us individual judgment and not the whole, every homosexual is subject to the judgment of God himself. Since the book of Leviticus already tells us, their actions are condemned by the word.

5. Idolatry. Isaiah 18. Revered by pastors, it is idolatrous. Your pastor has become like your god. Christian singers too are revered instead of being instruments not only through their voices but also through their lives. Tattoos in the bodies of Christians, explained, vehemently. What does God say about tattoos? And the incisions.

The Bible. Yes, written by men. Inspired by the Holy Spirit. And others simply took up the words of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Your deliverance begins when you realize that what you are doing is not a rather evil divine source. Immediately, you seek to free yourself from it in order to be free. Demons in your body, demons in your blood, demons in your thoughts, etc. You chase them and you will be a better person. A change will take place in your life. Relatives will let you notice that you have changed. Your face will shine. This is the impact of deliverance. From the moment you realize, the Holy Spirit accompanies you and delivers you. You don’t need a laying on of hands, often, it’s just your desire to free yourself.

My testimony: from lack of affection, rejected, false accused, reputation teared apart… I can still show some love ❤️

Dear friends, I am Helen Okins from the DRC, finally sharing my testimony. Says testimony, also says the nightmarish experiences, humiliating, painful, impactful, also almost depressive but my lifestyle and my way of living have saved me from the real depression which is affecting many people. And finally spiritual and social and professional experiences.

May 19, 2020. Living with the persons who rejected me, persecuted me, insulted me. Where in the earth will I have this joy in such a dark place with toxic people? Jesus Christ told me that, it’s the devil 😈 who’s using them. Keep showing some love and be joyful because I’m with you wherever you will be.

On this, what is the use of a testimony? We have heard many testimonies. However, they all serve for the glory of those who believe in God, for those who desire to connect deeply with Christ our Lord. For those who do not yet understand how we reach a powerful spiritual dimension, how do we succeed in pleasing God, how can we touch God and allow him to act on our behalf, how our life can also impact those of others, and how to recognize his mission here on earth, then how can we live on this earth of humans which is similar to something that we do not have a real knowledge of. Some say, earth is hell. How are we going to do, to live in peace and longer on earth? This is one of the reason that testimonies are useful.

Despite multiple demonic thoughts , psychological attacks silencing me not to demonstrate the glory of God in my life, of his immense love, of how he saved me from death, of false accusations … today I finally share this testimony because I feel good, I am happy in my life, I am fulfilled. I’m telling you the truth believe me, it’s true that you are going to think that to be happy is to get married and have children, it is to have a life that everyone likes, a life that is attractive to you. material goods. Maybe this seems like a happy life to you, a fulfilled life for some, yes, I wouldn’t want to neglect this aspect either for some who are filled with goods and they are happy for people who are happy because they got what their heart wanted. But believe me, through this testimony, you may change your thoughts on materials. I come by the power of the Holy Spirit, to you Christians, to those with spirit who desire to connect deeply with what they have been called to accomplish, therefore a mission for the Lord Jesus Christ. By this testimony, who had accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior but who still bathes between the world and the Kingdom of Heaven (the word of God and living his will).

This testimony is for those who still doubting to believe, to give themselves totally to God, this testimony is for people who are weak and tired, but that through this testimony you will realize that you are strong. This testimony is for people who are hurt who no longer have the strength to love anyone. This testimony is for people who no longer have the strength to do good to anyone or to trust and for people who live in constant fear to the point of even saying to themselves that eventually I will hide where I am. will go where. For you who are experiencing repeated failure, instability on all levels, well listen to this testimony.

To begin with, where I experienced the genesis, so the symptoms of depression, but the Lord quickly delivered me. For a while I saddened myself and walked away from the people who didn’t like me and who were a threat.

It quickly turned into an emotional depression, I no longer had the strength to feel myself loved or even to believe that we really love me. I went through this depression as many times since my childhood but until last year I had reached a higher level until the point where I thought of killing myself but being alone in my cocooning I heard a voice interior and I recognized that it was the voice of God, Christ was living in me and it was he who took the place. I was not loved, I was neglected despise and I was no longer worth living Christ told me stop if you say so it’s that I did nothing good to have created you and I never blessed you. Look where I took you, look what I did with you, have you stopped believing? Didn’t I do something you asked me to do? Is there nothing as a sign, as a work, as a symbol that I have passed, I the Lord Jesus Christ in your life Helen?

I started to cry, I said but Lord but why do I feel this way why even no one defending me? Faced with these false accusations and rumors on my behalf. No human? because, it is not you, who acts through people. Lord, is this means that you abandoned me? you don’t want to take revenge for me anymore? you don’t love me anymore so in this case i’m no longer worth living because i don’t see anyone here on earth standing up for me who is on my side. What did I do wrong? and Christ told me Helen I would give anything You want because you love me, and because I loved you first.

Helen I will give you what your heart desires, ask me what you want I am the eternal your God. I said Lord give me peace I will have peace in my heart, I will have peace. When we don’t mean to, I want to talk about you and that the heart you touch be touched. Let them testify. I have lived it. I felt a weight heavy in my soul, in my mind descended into my stomach, suddenly the pain was gone. I suddenly got up, alone in my room, I turn left and right, I said but what happened to me? I start tapping my chest, like it’s physical. Alas, the effect that the pains of the soul and the pains of the spirit have depends on the importance we place on them, that is, on the attention we give them in your life and our body. . The state of my heart was incompatible with the truths I had of the word of God. I couldn’t be happy myself, to be nice, to be really comfortable with myself. So I was slapping my chest saying to myself, but no no no no it must be there, every day I get up with great discomfort in my heart, wanting to take revenge against the person who was used by the devil to influence people’s thoughts to discredit me, reject me ‘humiliate me, persecute me.

Well, I’m going to start first how Christ delivered me and I tell you until this day that you are listening to this testimony, I have incredible peace despite the absence of certain wishes for a while, I have an amazing peace, you can’t imagine this peace, putting the truth smile back in my heart. Because I’ve been faking my smile in front of others.

I started jumping in my room, I started screaming, Lord, I’m not sick of my heart anymore, my God, thank you you freed me. I started screaming I said wow thank you Lord Jesus Christ.

I have peace. what had just happened? it was that God that gave me peace in order to forgive a young woman, young brother, a mother, a father, a uncle, an aunt. I’m in peace ✌️ and Glory to Jesus Christ, JEHOVAH
