Substitute

Most people view life from the perspective of a “Victim of Society” in Western Cultures.

This leads us to see everything that happens to us as a battle, and therefore we see life as “us versus them”.

Instead, we need to see life as a Game, where we can Win the Game of Life if we understand the Rules of the Game.

One Rule is the Law of Substitution.

The musical band The Who wrote a classic hit song called Substitute, with amazing lyrics.

“You think we look pretty good together,

You think my shoes are made of leather,

But I’m a substitute for another guy,”

Do you feel that your partner is using you as a substitute for someone else?

Ticket to Ride

We are discussing Inspiration from the Classic Beatles Song , “Ticket to Ride”.

The song opens with these poignant lyrics,

“I think I’m gonna be sad

I think it’s today, yeah

The girl that’s driving me mad

Is going away.”

It’s understandable that you might be feeling sad

that your girlfriend or partner is going away.

But what type of parting gift

do you want to give her?

Sadness for yourself,

or Happiness for her?

Do you want her parting feeling for you

to be of a self absorbed sad person,

who cares only about themselves?

Or do you want to reveal your Real Self,

a loving person who genuinely desires

her happiness and fulfilment?

The Beatles song continues,

“She’s got a Ticket to Ride

But she don’t care,

She said that living with me

Is bringing her down, yeah”

So your girlfriend wants to leave you because

you are bringing her down,

but you want to Play the Blame Card on her

because “she doesn’t care”?

How about focusing on making her feel good,

and not bringing her down?

To do this you are going to have to

look outside of your own needs,

and by realising the Love for your Partner

start to put her needs first.

What is it that your girlfriend really desires from you?

The Beatles song fills us in,

“For she would never be free

when I was around”

Are you allowing your own insecurities and fears,

to make you appear to be too controlling

over her desires and emotions?

The wonderful Ticket to Ride continues,

“I don’t know why she’s riding so high”

Should she be depressed and sad like you are?

Playing the Blame Card on your partner will not bring them back to you.

If you are unhappy that your girlfriend is high on life,

then you are going to repel her away from you.

Ticket to Ride illustrates this,

“She ought to think twice

she ought to do right by me”

But are you doing right by her,

is being jealous of her happiness going to help your relationship?

If we give out unconditional Grace towards our partner, or family members,

we will find that others will do right by us,

and Grace and Love will be multiplied back to us.

Some people will try to take advantage of you,

no matter what you do,

but they are best avoided.

The Beatles continue,

“Before she gets to saying goodbye

She ought to think twice

She ought to do right by me”

Why don’t you do right by her before she says Goodbye?

If you show Grace to her,

then she may not want to leave you?

Why can’t we show Grace to those we love?

Our ego gets in the way saying,

‘I’m right, so she should be admitting that she’s wrong,

until she starts doing the right thing by me,

I won’t show her that I really love her,

I’m always right.”

We have to learn how to overcome the demands of our own Ego,

if we want to have great relationships.

The reason that your girlfriend is ‘Riding High’

and you’re not,

is because she has her Ego under control.

“She’s Got a Ticket to Ride”,

your girlfriend is free,

and you’ve got an Ego who is ‘always right’.

Would you like to be free of the demands of your ego?

How to Release Negative Emotions

Sigmund Freud is quoted as saying,

“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.”

If it wasn’t for the Grace of Jesus, this certainly would be true.

Some people try to suppress and hide their inner feelings of guilt,

only to find them resurfacing at unwanted times,

as depression or fear or anger.

You cannot repress your Guilt if you want to live a happy life,

you must release it completely.

You will either find a way to overcome Guilt,

or it will become your domineering master.

Playing the Denial Card about your Guilt

only gives it greater power,

because it becomes a festering, unexpressed emotion.

Dr. Jordan Peterson asks the pertinent Question,

“Why do we Sabotage ourselves?”

If we don’t find some way of expressing our Guilt,

it will resurface and sabotage our lives.

Yet, some people stubbornly refuse to deal with their Guilt,

preferring instead to try to drown it with alcohol.

We may have tried every way we know to get rid of our Guilt,

but finally given up,

and resigned ourselves to living with this wretched emotional pain.

However,

if you can’t do it yourself,

you are now ready to receive the Grace of Jesus.

You may already be sabotaging every relationship you enter into,

so what have you got to lose?

Confess your Sin that has caused you all this Grief, to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ask for His Grace to heal your emotional pain.

Receive the Holy Spirit into your heart to empower you to overcome

all negative emotions.

How to Overcome Guilt

The famous Quote by Sigmund Freud,

“Before you diagnose yourself with Depression or low Self Esteem,

make sure you’re not surrounded by fools.”,

would be very controversial if it was made today.

Why does that matter in a discussion about Guilt?

If you are going to resolve your Guilt issues,

it’s important to recognize that sometimes our other negative emotions,

can actually be caused by uncertainty over Guilt.

Todays PC Agenda wants to diagnose almost every emotional turbulence

that we experience as Depression or Anxiety,

but we are not dismissing the genuinely severe cases.

Where does your Guilt come from?

When trying to find the source of your Guilt,

it is necessary to not magnify your feelings of Guilt,

even if you know that you have done someone wrong,

or have been doing something harmful to yourself,

eg drinking too much booze.

Deliberately focusing on your feelings of culpability

can lead to depression or low Self / Esteem.

Confessing your wrong doing to God,

will immediately lift the burden,

if you ask for Grace from Jesus Christ.

However, if you see God as a harsh Judge keeping a Scorecard

of all your mistakes and errors,

you may not receive the Grace that you need.

In Paul’s Letter to the Roman Church Ch4v4/, Message,

“But if you see that the job is too big for you”

of resolving your Guilt,

“that it’s something only God can do”,

you come to this place after trying everything else,

“and you Trust Him to do it,”

you can only do this if you open your heart to God’s Love and Grace,

“you could never do it for yourself no matter how long and hard you worked”,

you eventually found that extended Meditation sessions only increased your anxiety,

“that trusting Him to do it is what gets you Right with God, “,

it’s the Grace of Jesus that makes you the Righteous of God,

“Set Right with God, sheer Gift”,

you Receive God’s Gift of Right Standing in Jesus Christ by Faith in His Grace.

Why does Guilt Sabotage your life?

Sometimes we think that we can hide our Guilt by suppressing or trying to forget about it,

or by drowning out the memory with alcohol or drugs.

But we soon find that the more we try to silence our Guilt,

the louder it tends to get in our minds.

This is why unresolved Guilt can play a role in our Subconscious mind,

where we find that we keep playing the Self/Sabotage Card,

over and over again.

Just when we are on the verge of something going well in our lives,

things suddenly start to go wrong,

and each time this happens we feel worse about ourselves.

To resolve our hidden Guilt we need to bring it out in the open.

This can be done with a trusted friend, Mentor, Counsellor or Pastor.

If we don’t admit our Guilty feelings, we tend to keep Playing the Denial Card,

which allows our Guilt to remain unresolved.

In John 3:1

“God did NOT send his Son into the world to Condemn the world,

but that the world through Him might be Saved.”

Why do we tend Not to want to admit our Guilt?

We usually want to try to avoid the condemnation that comes from others.

This is why it is important to know that God is not a harsh Judge sitting on his Throne,

waiting for an opportunity to point out all your faults and weaknesses.

God sent His Son to Save you from Sin,

so that you can resolve your Guilt and live an abundant life,

full of love and joy by His Grace.

How to Close the Guilt Portal

Once you open the Guilt Portal it is very difficult to close it through Self Effort,

but Paul has revealed an easy way in his Secret Wisdom in his Letter to the Roman Church.

Firstly, opening the Guilt Portal has consequences for our Self Esteem, because we feel badly about ourselves.

A Counsellor may tell you that ,

“you have nothing to worry about,

since the cause of your Guilt is because you have violated your own Moral Code,

but because there is no such thing as a Moral Code,

then all you need to do is stop feeling regretful or responsible for your deed,

and the feelings of Guilt and Grief will go away.”

However, you soon discover that this advice doesn’t close the Guilt Portal,

if anything, trying to forget your own Moral Code has only made things far worse,

because you are now not sure of Who You Are anymore.

Paul’s Revelation of Grace gives us the solution to Closing the Guilt Portal,

Romans 3v23 Message,

“He got us out of the mess we’re in and Restored us to where He always wanted us to be.

And he did it by means of Jesus Christ.”

To receive this Revelation of Grace you have to let go

of your Ego’s desire to control everything.

Can your Ego close the Guilt Portal?

You have already tried everything you know,

and nothing seems to be working,

not even the extended 6 hour Meditation Session on your Weekend Retreat

made any difference to the pangs of Guilt you are experiencing.

The Meditation Teacher told you that you needed a whole month of extended meditation rituals,

but you know that it won’t work.

By yielding your heart to Jesus Christ

are immediately filled with the Grace and Love that you are looking for,

and Jesus slams the Guilt Portal shut for you.

How to Escape Guilt

Would you like to Escape from the Guilty feelings that you are experiencing?

I recently overheard someone saying, (fictional),

“I left my girlfriend because I got her pregnant, and I feel really bad about it because she has decided to keep the baby,

and I know that it’s going to be tough for her because she has no support from her parents.

I tried to get rid of this terrible feeling of Guilt with lots of booze and cocaine,

but I found that the Cocaine especially seemed to enhance the power of this Guilt to control my emotions,

and only made things far worse because after one extremely heavy Coke binge I saw a very evil apparition cursing me.

So I went to a recommended Counsellor to try to get rid of this demon of Guilt,

and he said to me that I had nothing to feel Guilty about and offered me some prescribed pills to ease my distress.

But I don’t want meds, I want to deal with this Guilty feeling I wake up with every morning,

I really loved my girlfriend and I feel her sadness,

so I asked the Counsellor how I could Escape from this depressing Guilt.

He replied that I had no reason to feel Guilty because there was no such thing as right and wrong,

what I did wasn’t wrong, as it was just a practical choice that I made,

he comes across this type of situation all the time and there was nothing to worry about because the pills will take the load of Guilt

off my mind.

This made me feel better until I walked out the door,

because I actually felt the Monster of Guilt laughing at me, and making a mockery of my misery.

I asked myself whether I really believed that right and wrong is just a concept invented by Christianity, as the Counsellor had tried to convince me.

What can I do to escape from this terrible Guilt?”

We have the solution in the hidden Wisdom revealed by Paul in Romans Ch3 V23,24

“Since we’ve compiled this long and sorry record as Sinners,

and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the Glorious lives God wills for us,

God did it for us.

Out of sheer generosity he put us in right standing with Himself.

A pure Gift.

He got us out of the mess we’re in

and RESTORED us to where he always he always wanted us to be.

And He did it by means of Jesus Christ”.

If we could sort out our Guilt problems ourselves, then why don’t we?

If you really want to get rid of those demons that are plaguing you,

then Receive the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ by Faith.

Why can’t we Overcome Guilt?

Secret Wisdom of Paul – Overcoming Guilt.

If Guilt was easy for most people to overcome then we would not have the Psychologist and Psychiatrist Offices full of religious and spiritual people looking for a remedy.

However, Paul clearly reveals the Secret Wisdom that he received from Jesus Christ to overcome all Guilty feelings in his Letter to the Roman Church.

Romans 3 V27-28,

“What we’ve learned is this: God does NOT respond to what we do, we respond to what God does.

We’ve finally figured it out. Our lives get in step with God and all others by letting Him set the pace,

not by proudly or anxiously trying to run the parade.”

Paul was Teaching a New Revelation of Grace, and was being countered by religious people who wanted to establish that they were setting the Rules for the Game of Life.

We can see this Spiritual Conflict being worked out today over Paul’s Revelation of ‘One Mediator between God and Man, the Man Jesus Christ’.

Religious people are constantly trying to get God to respond to their idea and demands of who a Mediator should be by saying,

“Well in my valued and learned opinion, I know the Apostle Paul wrote most of the New Covenant and stated emphatically that there is only ONE MEDIATOR, but I happen to believe that we should be able to have many Saints or Angels as Mediators, after all some people may lose Faith in Jesus but can always Pray to their favourite Saint or Statue or Idol. I can’t see the harm in Praying to Saints, although I must admit that I do hear a lot of complaining in the Confessional that the Saints aren’t listening.”

We have tried to ‘Reinvent the Wheel’ by bringing in the concept of Multiple Mediators and Idols, and in telling God that this is the way that we want it.

One major argument being used to justify Multiple Mediators by Religious New Age Ministers who are Political Correctness advocates, is that “we cannot trust Jesus Christ because He is male”.

Also, “because we have lost trust in our fathers as they have been less than perfect, we cannot have One Mediator who is a Father figure”.

Others suggest that their particular Saint lived a very holy life with a vow of poverty in a Monastery, so therefore we should be able to Pray to that Saint.

Paul adds clarity in his Letter to the Roman Church 3V30, Message,

“God Sets Right all who welcome His action and enter into it, both those who follow our Religious System and those who have never heard of our Religion.”

This shows how amazing Paul’s Gospel of Grace is, as it is available to members of all Denominations and to those who are not a member of any Church.

So there is no need for anyone to become defensive and quote their denomination’s Religious Rules or Orthodoxy, to oppose the Grace of Jesus.

Are your Religious Rules helping you to overcome your own feelings of Guilt?

If not, then open your heart to Receive the Grace of Jesus Christ by Faith.

What is the Secret to Overcoming Guilt?

The Secret Wisdom of Paul – Overcoming Guilt.

Guilt keeps on knocking at your door trying to gain permission to re-enter your life, even after you initially have overcome its power.

Guilt forces this re-entry by working with your Inner Critic, constantly reminding you of your past failures and weaknesses.

Paul was given Secret Wisdom to transcend the feeling of rejection that comes with Guilt,

and this was a Revelation of the Mystery of Heavenly Wisdom that had been previously hidden from religious and spiritual people, and this Revelation came directly by our Lord Jesus Christ.

Martin Luther received this Heavenly Wisdom from our Lord Jesus Christ, and it transformed his life which led him to lead a movement to reform the Church that had descended into the corruption of paid indulgences for Sin.

Feeling Guilty about our weaknesses makes us point the finger of accusation at people who are more successful and happy than we are.

Paul explains this Secret Wisdom in his Letter to the Roman Church, Romans Ch4V7 AMP,

“Blessed and Happy and Favored are those whose Lawless Acts have been forgiven,

And whose Sins have been covered up and completely buried.”

We all make mistakes, but these failures can be completely erased if we access the Grace of Jesus by Faith.

Secret Wisdom of Paul – Guilt Free

Would you like to be Guilt Free?

The possibility of being Guilt Free has now reached the Mount Everest ,’impossible to climb’, status amongst many Spiritual, Religious, and personal development advocates.

Comments such as, “You don’t have to be free of Guilt to be Happy”,

or “the best way to deal with Guilt is to drown it with booze”,

or “my Guilt is a part of who I am now, I’m used to it, it makes me feel very depressed that I’ve been told that I can never get rid of it”.

or “it’s unrealistic to think that you can beat Guilt”,

or the laughable, “It’s societies fault that you feel Guilty”,

or the saddest, “In our professional opinion, the best solution for Guilt is a Pill”.

Paul revealed in his brilliant Letter to the Roman Church that God has created the Solution to the Guilt problem by the Grace of Jesus Christ, but it’s NOT what most religious people think that it is.

Someone else states how they feel , “I’ve done some things in my life that I’m not proud of, and I feel really bad about it, I can’t forgive myself so why should God forgive me? I am not worthy of Grace”.

What we need to understand is that God’s Grace is not dependent on us living a perfect life, all we have to do is receive Grace by Faith.

Paul states in Romans Ch3 Message , “How else would things ever get straightened out if God didn’t do the straightening?”

When we come to the place that we WANT to get rid of our Guilt, but find that we can’t do it through Religious Rituals, illicit drugs or alcohol, meditation classes, Blame Cards, the classic denial Ostrich Cards, we are now ready to receive the Gift of Grace from Jesus Christ.

Someone says, “Why are there so many religious people lined up to go to the Counsellor for Alcoholism, if Grace is freely available?”

We simply have not been taught correctly in most cases what is the New Way of Grace, mainly because some Religious Teachers have thought that Grace was being used as an excuse to keep on Sinning.

But I have Good News for those misinformed Teachers, your followers are not using Grace as an excuse to Sin, they were already Sinning anyway, and still are listening to you Preach against Grace with your Self-Righteousness.

What we do need is the Grace of Jesus to overcome the Sin that is our weakness in our lives.

Paul explains this clearly to the Roman Church who were being persuaded by Anti-Grace Legalists, Romans Ch3V21 Message,

“But in our time something NEW has been added.

What Moses and the Prophets witnessed to all those years ago has happened.

The God setting things right that we read about has become Jesus setting things right for us.”

So the problem with Anti-Grace Legalists is that they don’t believe that Jesus has Set Things Right for us, they are still thinking that we need to do so by vigorously trying to obey the Religious Commandments that are Preached.

“You must eat a strict Vegetarian Diet”,

“You must Pray certain Prayers several times per day”

“You must go to the Confessional at least once per week”

“You must keep the Sabbath Day”

and so on, none of these things are necessarily wrong in themselves, but by thinking that in doing them you are scoring Spiritual Points and are therefore pleasing God is a wrong notion.

By Believing that Jesus has Set Things Right for you there comes a Freedom and Liberty in your life that will amaze and excite you, because Guilt can no longer dominate and control your emotions.

Would you like to ENJOY being Guilt Free?
