HOW TO PREVENT PEOPLE FROM TRASHED YOUR LIFE
By Dr. James. A McBean D.Th., MCC
M any people do not realized that we become what we hang around. There is no way a person will ever prosper while they hang around people who secretly envied them.
When a person are seeking employment. On the application the person was ask to put the names of three people not related to he or she. People usually used the names of their best friends. Friends who they can rely on. People who they considered creditable. One employer told me a shocking story. She said “If you see some kind of reference that came into this office from people best friends” “Do not employed this person, this is a nasty person”
People can ruin your entire life and cause you to end up homeless and eating out of the trash can. At the same time, the people that bring your life down are people who suppose to be best friends. Some friends or only coffins that we drag about from year to years. These weigh us down.
CUT THEM LOOSE.
Ask yourself some serious questioning. Since I know this person what has he or she ever contribute to my life? Does this person share information with me? Since I been going to this church what have I accomplished?
Sent out phony job reference, and see it they are going to give you a good reference. You must stop seeking out people who are not seeking you out, these are the people holding you back and keeping you down. Go find new friends. Dump out those old phone numbers. “Hello” “Wrong number” You do not remember me? “No” I never heard of you. In plane word, I do not want to remember you and do not want to hear from you.
A so call Christians brother malice me for fifteen years, then he came down to Florida, and call that he want to visit my home. I ask my wife. For what? Why does he want to come to our home. Tell him do not come and if he come I have to take it as a treat.
The other friends stop talking to me. So what? They are not going to cry for me when I fall. They never congratulate me on any thing, nor encourage me on any thing. For you to go forward you have to cut the coffins loose. You have to picked up on people who do not mean you any good and run from them
HOW DOES THE SCRIPTURES TEACHUS TO DEAL WITH NASTY PEOPLE!
Micah 7:5-7 (NKJV) Do not trust in a friend; Do not put your confidence in a companion; Guard the doors of your mouth From her who lies in your bosom. 6 For son dishonors father, Daughter rises against her mother, Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; A man's enemies are the men of his own household. 7 Therefore I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me.
Do not put any trust in them. Do not try to win them over, it not going to happen any time soon. These people operate out of envy. Envy is what fuels them. Do not try to understand them, because they do not understand themselves.
GUARD THE DOOR OF YOUR MOUTH.
PROBLEM ON THE JOB.
DO NOT JOIN THEM NOR BECOME LIKE THEM.
Proverbs 23:6 (KJV) Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:

SOMETIME ONLY CHRIST JESUS CAN HELP US
Isaiah 55:6-AV Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Isaiah 55:7-AV Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
LOOK AT THE BENEFITS OF BECOMING A CHRISTIAN
Romans 3:23 (KJV) for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Galatians 3:22 (KJV) But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
THE SINNER MUST BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A GOD
THE SINNER MUST BELIEVE THAT GOD IS READY TO FORGIVE HIM
THE SINNER MUST BELIEVE THAT CHRIST DIED FOR HIM
Romans 5:8 (KJV)But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1 Cor. 15:3-8 (KJV) For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:  And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:  After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.  After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.  And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
MUST BELIEVE THAT GOD CAN KEEP HIM
Jude 1:24 (KJV) Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
PERFECTING THE SAINTS IS A WORK OF GOD
THE SINNER MUST KNOW THAT ONLY JESUS CAN SAVE THEM
THE SINNER MUST MAKE A DECISION TODAY
2 Cor. 6:2 (KJV) (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY THIS PRAYER
We can sing with the song writer" I rise walk in heaven’s own light above the world and sin with heart made pure and garments white, and Christ en-throned with in. The cleansing stream I see I see I plunge, and O It cleans-eth me. O praise the Lord, it cleans-eth me, it cleans-eth me yes, cleans-eth me."
DROP ALL PRE-CONCEIVE IDEAS OF CHRISTIANITY
FIRST HUMBLING YOU
If you stop sins and get holy before God’s timing you will begin to boast how it is your own magnetism got you so far, then you became a source of discouragement to others. Therefore, you are going to stuck upon a sin or two. The sin always getting the better of you. This will push you to always accept God’s grace, and to see your own frailness.
1 John 1:8 (KJV) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
TO CONTINUE GROWING IN GOD
2 Peter 1:5-10 (NKJV) But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. 10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble.
All a baby need to do to grow is to feed. You will have to learn to feed yourself. Many pastors cannot feed the sheep. Continue visiting our website for free materials. Feel free to email us for additional resources.
FINDING OUT YOUR CALLING
WHAT YOU MUST DROP OFF
Ephes. 4:31 (Living Bible) Stop being mean, bad-tempered, and angry. Quarreling, harsh words, and dislike of others should have no place in your lives.
Col. 3:8 (Living Bible) but now is the time to cast off and throw away all these rotten garments of anger, hatred, cursing, and dirty language.
GET A GOOD BIBLE, FIND A GOOD CHURCH
Hebrews 10:25 (Living Bible) Let us not neglect our church meetings, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.
PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM BEING SPOILED BY MAN
Hebrews 13:9 (KJV) Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occpied therein.
Seven Ways that People Can Spoil Christians
2. Through vain deceit (Col. 2:4,8,18-19)
3. Through human traditions (Col. 2:8)
4. Through human religion and world principles contrary to the gospel (Col. 2:8,14-23; note, §Galatians 4:3)
5. Through circumcision (Col. 2:11-13; Acts 15:1; Romans 4:9-16; Galatians 5:1-11)
6. Through the law of Moses, demanding observance of the laws on meats, drinks, holy days, new moons, feasts, and sabbaths (Col. 2:14-17)
7. Through cults that puff up and imitate the gospel (Col. 2:18-23)
By all these means, unsuspecting souls are being carried off as plunder and booty by false teachers. The founders of false religions and human philosophies which pamper the flesh and give their victims elated feelings of importance make an appeal to them.
Christianity is loaded down with some false concept. Some little believe system, which are spread by false believers. One of such teaching is that you must “Look like Christians” How does Christians look? Genuine Christianity is not an external thing but of the heart and spirit.
Micah 6:8 (KJV)He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
When cults capture a newly converted Christians, the cult first job on that new believer is to close their mind. Preventing the new believer from reading any material from other churches. So that new believer will never get out of their trap.
YOUR HORMONE DOES NOT STOP WORKING WITH CHRISTIANITY
Romans 8:23 (KJV) And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
Our bodies were not save at conversion. The work of redemption took place in your spirit man. Our body will be redeemed at the return of our lord. We are still waiting for the redemption of our body.
According to Philip 3:20-21 and Romans 8:23. You are still going to have urges. You have to present your body to the lord as a living sacrifice. Not dead one. Living sacrifice give trouble, you will have trouble keeping that body tied to the altar. However, as you and I grow in the lord what seem impossible will be quite possible.
