DEALING WITH STRESS IN THE END TIMES
TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM
“But know this, that
in the last days perilous times will
2 Timothy 3:1-5
The Greek word for “perilous” used in this passage is the word “chalepos” (khal-ep-oss) and means: “harsh, fierce, difficult, dangerous, painful, grievous, hard to deal with.”
It actually describes a society that has replaced virtue with immorality: and this includes governments and leaders in government. In addition, the void left by deleting virtue invites the entrance of demonic spirits to operate within the arts, the media, commerce, and governmental and legal structures of society.
In the USA there are daily reports of the government trampling on the rights of people
• The IRS unfairly targeting certain religious and political groups.
• Healthcare laws that were designed under
ObamaCare to win or garner votes have caused thousands to lose
their jobs, and others have had employment cut back from full time
to part time … and that does not even take into consideration the
reduced quality of healthcare that may result. (Many experienced
doctors are quitting practice.) PRAY for a change in
FBI and DOJ practicing deceit through political
These do NOT even include what is going on in LESS democratic nations and governments.
Because of “barrenness of virtue,” there will be much corruption in commerce, in government, and in relationships resulting in hard, painful and stressful conditions in the lives of people.
So … what's the answer? I have covered it in this
podcast teaching. Listen and start
DEALING WITH STRESS IN THE END
HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM STRESS
I want to talk to you today more about “How to Protect Yourself from Stress.” In a previous teaching four years ago I taught on "Healing from Stress." In that teaching I showed you HOW to be healed – how to be delivered – from stress. In this teaching I want to teach you how to PREVENT stress from operating in your life. Instead of “fixing” the situation, I want to teach you some areas of preventive maintenance to avoid stress in your life.
After I received the Mikvah of Ruach HaKodesh (the Baptism in the Holy Spirit) I did lots of research on fasting and health. I noticed that in the Scandanavian countries there was more emphasis of fasting that in the West. Some Scandinavians would fast one day a week or three days a month. Also, their medical practice was based more on a preventive regimen than on “fix it after the problem.”
I have a very honest auto mechanic that has worked on my automobiles for 30 years. Sometimes he does not even charge me. Other times, he will say, “You don't need that.” And many times he has told me things that I should do to prevent mechanical faliures, whereas, he could have NOT mentioned these things and waited until something broke and then charged me.
Today I want to tell you HOW to prevent stress from happening in your life: “How to Protect Yourself from Stress.” In Job 3:26 we read, “I am not at ease, neither am I quiet, neither have I rest; But trouble comes.” I have a mini-teaching on Job which you can see at: “Healing Through Proper Mental Attitude.” But, pertinent to this teaching today I want to emphasize that Job in this situation (before he was healed) was:
Not at ease;
Proverb 27:12 tells us, “A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.” I have done lots of investing through the years by day trading and investing in commodities and futures where I operated with large margins for the advantage of leverage. Of course, if the trades went “south” the margins worked to my disadvantage. But, here, I want to illustrate the good use of margins. The definition of “margin” is “An amount available beyond what is actually needed.” One source describes it as, “The space between our current load and our limits.”
WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE MARGIN
Stress goes up.
You are not prepared for the future.
*** Notice: Relationships only start … or are nourished … during margin.
In Luke 17:1, Messiah Yeshua taught: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come ...” This is where “margin” can be a buffer to protect you from stress.
HOW YOU DEVELOP MARGIN
Simplify things in your life: activities, stuff, technology.
Allow for and establish time, money, work and relationship margins.
Give yourself SPACE. Don't make things too binding … too tight … too limited: Plan for MARGIN in your time, your financial dealings, your work, your relationships!
The time margin is one of the easiest to “fix,” but at the same time, the one we prioritize least when planning. Messiah was asked the question: “Rabbi, which is the greatest commandment in Torah?” Yeshua answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
LOVE provides … it leads the way … for “margin.”
However, the “mechanics” of margin are maintained during Sabbath: the day of rest. The mechanics of margin such as:
1. the need for it;
2. the desire for it; and,
3. the “how to” plans for it are inculcated during the Day of Rest with God.
Also, during the Day of Rest there are TWO promised blessings shown in Isaiah Chapter 58:
1.You will “ride on the high places of the earth,” and …
2. “You will feed on the heritage of Jacob, your father.”
In other words, you will be:
1. Above, and in control of the events in your life, with “heights” of enjoyment.
2. Prosperous, healthy, and frutiful.
My friend, start today establishing margins in your family, your finances, and your field of endeavor.
Give yourself SPACE. Don't make things too
binding … too tight … too limited: for yourself … your family …
your associates. Plan for margin! It will protect you from stress NOW … and in the
Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.
