Hello and Happy Day! This is Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, novelist and life coach, welcoming you to another episode of Winning with the Word. Today is Monday, November 28, 2022, and this is Episode #36 of Series 2022. This episode is titled “The Three C’s of the World’s Final Destruction”.

This week’s message is one that will require your full attention as it deals with a very serious topic that affects you and your loved ones. So, please listen with an open mind and an open heart, allowing the Holy Spirit to lead you into all truth. 

What I am about to explain may surprise you, shock you, or even scare you. But my purpose is not to scare you. My purpose is to prepare you for the extremely difficult times that lie ahead—maybe even before the end of this current year of 2022.

For the past two thousand years, we have been living in what is called the Age of God’s Grace. It has been a period of time in which God has shown mercy on the world and has withheld His judgment on the sin of man. But the Age of Grace is about to close, introducing the Age of God’s Wrath. The Age of God’s Wrath is that time period in history when God will no longer hold back His anger toward mankind’s sin but, instead, will unleash His full fury upon it. You don’t want to be here for that!

Why not?

Well, for one reason, God will show no mercy during His time of wrath, only punishment. For another reason, that punishment will be meted out through the severely dictatorial hand of the AntiChrist, Satan personified, who will rule the earth during the seven years of the Age of God’s Wrath.

Okay, Dr. MaryAnn, so, what specifically will happen during the Age of God’s Wrath, and how will if affect me?

Great question! Let me explain.  

The Bible tells us everything we need to know about what lies ahead, both for those who accept Christ as their Savior and Lord and for those who do not. These Bible predictions are called prophecies. Some of these prophecies foretell three key, big-ticket items that are currently taking over our world as I write this message. The big-ticket items have been called the three Cs of the end days and are Climate Change, Crypto-Currency, and Covid.

Let’s take a close look at each one.

1__CLIMATE CHANGE

You may have read that recently, Pope Francis led a delegation of world religious leaders to the COP27 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Egypt. While there, these world religious leaders went to the Mt. Sinai area to announce to the world the Ten Climate Change Commandments that would form the foundation of their New World Order. In other words, these Ten Climate Change Commandments are the foundational document of the one-world religion prophesied in the Bible and spearheaded by none other than Pope Francis. 

So, what are these Ten Commandments of Climate Change. Let me list them for you.

1. Think of future generations.
2. Embrace alternative energy sources.
3. Consider pollution’s effect on the poor.
4. Take the bus!
5. Be humble.
6. Don’t become a slave to your phone.
7. Don’t trade online relationships for real ones.
8. Turn off the lights, recycle, and don’t waste food.
9. Educate yourself.
10.Believe you can make a difference.

This blasphemous attempt to re-create the original Ten Commandments given by God to Moses—and without any mention whatsoever of the God Who rules our planet–and announced on this very mountain where the original Ten Commandments were given by God to Moses, form is a key sign that we have entered the last days before the return of Christ. Interestingly, a few months before this event in Egypt, the infamous and occult Georgia Guidestones were suddenly destroyed in the State of Georgia. The Georgia Guidestones listed ten commandments that were similar in many ways to the Ten Commandments of Climate Change introduced by the pope and his heretical cohorts. The commandments on the Georgia Guidestones read as follows. Note their similarity to the Ten Commandments of Climate Change.

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. 
2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally, resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
10. Be not a cancer on the Earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

At first glance, many of the points in these documents sound really good. After all, who doesn’t want to prize truth and unite humanity? But that is the nature of deception. It sounds so good or looks so good–at first glance. But when we carefully examine these commandments, we see their grave danger. The grave danger lies in the fact that both sets of commandments worship the creation rather than the Creator. The New World Order has made the earth its god. This is nothing other than idolatry. 

Moreover, consider carefully the first commandment of the Georgia Guidestones: Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. The world’s population recently reached eight billion people. The number eight billion is considerably greater than 500,000,000. So, in order for this commandment to be obeyed, 7,500,000,000 people would have to be killed. Interesting! So, how would these people be killed in order to eliminate them? We shall find out a little later in this message. 

Continuing with our exploration of the Climate Change Agenda, we learn that its goal is to monitor what is called the carbon footprint of every person. What is the carbon footprint? It is the total amount of carbon dioxide (including methane and nitrous oxide) that your daily activities generate. What daily activities? Activities like eating, driving your car, and heating your house.

So, how will the New World Order government monitor your carbon footprint? Easy. Through what is called a carbon score card or carbon credit card. This card will keep track of your carbon score by maintaining a running total of your carbon footprint usage and by restraining your usage based on your total score. If you exceed your allotted limit, you will no longer be permitted to engage in certain activities. 

For instance, if you use more than your heating allotment, you won’t be allowed to buy more gas or electric to heat your house. If you use more than your food allotment, you won’t be allowed to buy more food.

So, how is this credit score calculated? It is calculated based on your political, religious, and social views. Let’s say you want to eat meat twice a week. If you do, points will be deducted from your total carbon credit score card because the globalists don’t want you to eat meat. They want you to eat bugs. (In case you haven’t heard, insects are now being pushed as food for humans. Be sure you read the labels on everything you buy. Look for ingredients like “cricket flour.”  I am not joking. If you don’t believe me, read the article at the link at the end of this post titled “Packing Insects for a New Generation of Protein Snacks.”

The four main categories that will be measured to determine your carbon footprint score are: food, consumption, transportation, and household energy. You will be tracked in all of these areas. For example, 
__How much meat did you eat?
__How much gas did you use in your car?
__How much electricity and heat did you use in your home?
If you exceed the prescribed limits, you will be penalized by having a limit placed on your future consumption of these products and services.

Let’s move on to item #2:

2__CRYPTO CURRENCY

While the Climate Change agenda has as its goal the creation of a carbon footprint credit score—in other words, a score given to each person based on how well he obeys the ten commandments of climate change— the Crypto-Currency agenda has as its goal the total tracking of our financial transactions based on our religious, political, and social views. In other words, if we agree with the ideology of the New World Order, we will be allowed to buy and sell pretty much what we want. But if we don’t agree, the government will limit–or even block–our purchases. For example, based on our compliance with the government or lack thereof, we will be allotted a certain amount of gasoline to fuel our cars, a certain amount of electricity to light our homes, a certain amount of meat, if any, to include in our diets.

How will this financial surveillance and tracking take place? Through the use of blockchain technology.  Blockchain technology is, simply speaking, the means by which every single financial transaction a person makes will be tracked in a record-keeping system that stores your information in a digital block. The block is then attached to other digital blocks of data in the system, thus forming a train or chain of interconnected data blocks. This data can be easily tracked and surveilled with perfect accuracy. Blockchain technology will be used to verify every single financial transaction of every single person in the entire world. No one will escape its surveillance. The end goal of the Crypto-Currency agenda is to control the economy of the world and, in so doing, to control your personal finances.

So how will this affect you?

The tracking of your every financial transaction will work in sync with your carbon footprint score card and be recorded on something like a social credit score card. Everything you purchase will be evaluated in light of your political, religious, and social views. If your views align with the views of the globalist, new world order agenda, you will be allowed to purchase pretty much what you want. If they do not, you won’t.

So, let’s say you are opposed to abortion. Points will then be deducted from your social score card because of your position on abortion. Let’s say you are opposed to homosexuality. Points will be deducted because of your position on homosexuality. Let’s say you refuse to address people by their requested pronouns. Again, you will have a strike against your carbon credit score card. 

All of these strikes will diminish your ability to buy and sell.

This use of social credit and carbon footprint score cards will eventually lead to the mark of the beast without which, the Bible states, no one will be able to buy or sell.

Revelation 3: 16-17 NLT: “He [the AntiChrist] required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.” 

This mark will be implanted in the hand or forehead of every person who chooses to take it. It will signify that those who take it worship the AntiChrist. Those who refuse to take the mark will be beheaded by the AntiChrist. 

The mark of the beast will be some sort of insertion into the body–whether by injection or some form of tattoo—of a substance that will alter your DNA and transform you into a new species of being. You have have heard the term “trans-humanism” being bounced around lately. Well, the mark of the beast will turn all those who take it into trans-humans—beings who are part human and part satanic. As such, they will no longer be capable of being redeemed and, as a consequence of their altered DNA, they will be doomed to hell. Why? Because Jesus came as a human to redeem humans, not trans-humans. 

This is the reason that the Bible says this in Revelation 14: 9 of those who take the mark of the beast:

“Then a third angel followed them, shouting, ‘Anyone who worships the beast and his statue or who accepts his mark on the forehead or on the hand must drink the wine of God’s anger. It has been poured full strength into God’s cup of wrath. And they will be tormented with fire and burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and the Lamb.”

Well, my friend, are you shaken up yet?  We have one more item to go. Number three is COVID.

3__COVID.

The COVID Agenda is the unifying factor among the three agendas of CLIMATE CHANGE, CRYPTO-CURRENCY, and COVID. The reason that the COVID Agenda is the unifying factor among all three agendas is that the COVID Agenda prepared the way for the other two.

The COVID Agenda is the biggest deception ever perpetrated upon human history. It is a globalist plan—engendered decades, if not centuries ago—to destroy the human race. I mentioned earlier that one of the Georgia Guidelines called for reducing the world population to 500,000,000. One of the chief ways the New World Order has attempted to do this is through the Covid vaccine. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people have died from taking this vaccine. Evidence is increasingly emerging that the vaccine affects the heart, causing sudden heart attacks and myocarditis. Why the spike in heart-related deaths among people in their thirties and forties? There is something sinister going on, my friend, and we who follow Christ know what it is. It is the encroachment of the beast system over the entire world, leading to the rise of the AntiChrist and the Great Tribulation.

You see, ever since the plan of salvation was put into motion, Satan has tried to corrupt the human genome in order to prevent the birth of Christ and the preservation of His followers. The Bible tells us that in the days of Noah, humanity was corrupted by the fallen angels who had sexual relations with human women and created hybrid creatures called Nephilim. The DNA of these hybrid offspring—these Nephilim—was corrupted because of the demonic union of supernatural satanic beings with human women. This abominable creation of a hybrid being is the reason God destroyed the world by flood. The Messiah could not come through a lineage whose seed—in other words, whose DNA—was corrupted. Noah and his family were the only humans left on earth whose DNA had not been corrupted by the entrance of hybrid Satanic beings into their lineage. 

Today, Satan is still up to his old tricks. He is still trying to corrupt the human race by his attempts to create a hybrid creature–what the world calls today a trans-human. Those who take the mark of the beast will become trans-human and, therefore, will no longer be able to be saved. 

How will this corruption of humanity happen? It will very likely happen through a vaccine or an injection of a substance that alters one’s DNA.

Lest you think this is a conspiracy theory, let me warn you that the term “conspiracy theory” has been loosely tossed around in order to discredit those of us who are telling the truth. This careless use of the term conspiracy theory is designed to cast aspersions among truth-tellers who refuse to be moved by the New World Order agenda. The only real conspiracy going on is that instigated by Satan. It is his conspiracy to destroy humanity and to bring everyone to hell with him. In order to do that, he has to discredit Truth and all who speak it, in an attempt to make us look like fools who know nothing.

But Truth will always prevail over Deception.

So, let’s now take a look at the Covid deception and how this vaccine is being used to corrupt humanity.

While the Covid vaccine is not the mark of the beast, it will eventually evolve into the mark of the beast. In other words, the present Covid vaccine is the precursor of what will eventually be the mark of the beast. Why? Because the mark of the beast will inject or insert into the body a coded substance that will alter the God-ordained genetic code and transform it into something else that is no longer human.  Indeed, it is not absolutely certain that the current Covid vaccine does not do something similar, or is not, at least, paving the way for genetic modification. 

How does this work?

The COVID vaccine injects into the body a substance called mRNA. You have very likely heard the term mRNA in reference to the Covid vaccine. The “m” in the term mRNA stands for messenger. The messenger  takes the message coded in the RNA and transmits that message to the cells of the entire body.  In the case of the COVID vaccine, the message is: Body, you need to produce more proteins. The coded message in the RNA then begins helping the body to produce more proteins. But it may be producing abnormal proteins that can adversely affect the body. 

When the mark of the beast is actually implemented, it will insert into the person’s body a code that will alter that person’s genetic structure—that person’s DNA—thereby changing him from a human to a trans-human. A hybrid being. Since Jesus came as a human man to redeem only humans, this trans-human creature will no longer be able to be redeemed; that is, to be saved. Hence, he or she will go to hell and remain there forever. The Bible warns us that those who take the mark of the beast are doomed forever:

Revelation 14: 9 – “Then a third angel followed them, shouting, “Anyone who worships the beast and his statue or who accepts his mark on the forehead or on the hand must drink the wine of God’s anger. It has been poured full strength into God’s cup of wrath. And they will be tormented with fire and burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and the Lamb. The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night, for they have worshiped the beast and his statue and have accepted the mark of his name.”

Revelation13: 16 – Also he compels all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead [signifying allegiance to the beast.

The COVID Agenda has as its goal the destruction of humanity. Remember the first commandment in the Georgia Guidelines—”Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature”?  Well, the COVID vaccine seems to be contributing to that goal. According to a recent analysis conducted for Health 202 by Cynthia Fox, Vice-President at Kaiser Family Foundation, 58% of Corona virus deaths in August 2022 were among people who were vaccinated or boosted. That is a very high percentage for a vaccine that supposedly prevents a disease.

One purpose of the COVID pandemic—or, as some of us prefer to call it, the COVID “plandemic” because we believe it was deliberately planned—was to condition humanity to allow itself to be controlled by a new world order government bent on subjugation. And fear was the motivator. 

Fear is diametrically opposed to freedom. Where there is fear, there is no freedom. Where there is freedom, there is no fear.

Ultimately, the globalist agenda with the mark of the beast will come into full effect through the merging of the three agendas: Climate Change, Crypto-Currencey, and Covid. Through the mark, the AntiChrist and his governmental forces will be able to control our activities, our money, and our health. The technology they have developed will employ a digital identification card (a digital ID) that will work through blockchain technology and will be implemented by means of a vaccine of which the Covid vaccine was the forerunner—in other words, through the injection of a DNA-altering substance into the human body that will work like a micro-computer in your physical body to track everything about you: your health, your financial status, and your social status. Already, people are getting the chip so that they can pay for purchases with merely a swipe of their hand over an electronic transaction device. 

The Bible tells us that in the last days before the return of Christ in the Rapture, things will be as they were in the days of Noah. What happened in the days of Noah? In the days of Noah, humanity had been genetically corrupted by sexual relations between the fallen angels and the women of that day. Human seed was merged with satanic seed, thereby creating hybrid creatures the Bible calls Nephilim. The reason that Noah and his family were spared is that they alone still possessed DNA that has not been altered and corrupted. 

When the Bible states that Noah was found to be righteous, it means that Noah’s DNA was still intact. It had not been corrupted. Everyone else’s DNA has been corrupted by the seed of the serpent that altered the seed of man. But Noah’s DNA was unaltered and pure.

There is so much more to the three C’s of the world’s final destruction. But let me conclude by saying this: All three Cs are in the process of merging. This is a sure sign that the Tribulation—the Age of God’s Wrath—is about to begin. The world stage has already been set up to receive the AntiChrist and his evil system. The day will soon be here when, in order to survive, one will need to abide by the AntiChrist’s agenda. That is, one will need to be climate-compliant, currency-compliant, and Covid-compliant. If one refuses to be compliant in any of these three areas, one will be executed.

Lest you think that what I am saying is not true, just look around you. Even now, any foreigner who travels to the United States must have been vaccinated with the Covid vaccine in order to enter our country. Soon, all international flights will require that one be vaccinated. And in the near future, it is highly likely that even those who fly domestically will have to take the vaccine or else they will not be permitted to fly. 

For those who think that things will return to normal, I hate to be the harbinger of bad news, but they won’t. So don’t get your hopes up. Just realize that all that is happening was foretold by Jesus Christ Himself. He is coming back soon for those who believe him and follow him. That’s the only thing you need to consider at this point in time. Do you know Jesus Christ? If not, you will have to go through the Tribulation and will very likely die during the Tribulation. If you accept Jesus Christ now as your Savior and Lord, you will not be left behind. He will remove you from the earth together with all of us who follow Him, and He will take us to Heaven to be with Him forever.

The choice is a no-brainer to me. What is it to you? Accept Jesus Christ now by doing these three things:

1. Acknowledge before God that you are a sinner.
2. Repent of your sin. This means turn away from it and go in the opposite direction. 
3. Receive Jesus into your heart by asking Him to come in.

Do these three things now. When you do, you will be filled with deep peace. Then write to me at info@maryanndiorio.com and request my free e-book titled After You’re Born Again. It will help you and get started in your walk with Jesus.

Before you leave, please check out my featured book of the week, The Italian Chronicles Trilogy, listed below. All three novels are available for only $9.69 for a limited time only on Amazon. The trilogy would make a great and inexpensive Christmas gift for the reader in your life.

Hello and Happy Day! This is Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, novelist and life coach, welcoming you to another episode of Winning with the Word. Today is Monday, November 14, 2022, and this is Episode #34 of Series 2022. This episode is titled “Are You Worried about Your Financial Future?”

_________________________________________

If you’ve had your eyes open at all, you know about the predicted food shortages and famines, the projected stock market crash, and the move toward a digital world currency. All of these ominous events are causing great anxiety among the world population. Already I’ve read that some families here in America have reduced their daily meals to two a day instead of the usual three. Drought has ruined many crops throughout the world, and, if things don’t change, the world is heading to famine.

But today I’d like to encourage you not to be anxious nor to fear,  I’m going to share with you some promises from God for His children. (If you are not His child, then listen closely so you can become His child and receive these benefits as well.)

The world is fast heading into a time period that the Bible calls “the time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jeremiah 30: 7). This will be a seven-year time period, also known as the Tribulation, during which God will judge the Jews for rejecting the Messiah. The Book of Revelation speaks extensively of the time of Jacob’s trouble.

During this time, there will be widespread famine. The fact that we are witnessing the approach of global famine now means that the Tribulation is not far off, and the return of Jesus is even closer. The Bible tells us that Jesus will return to remove His children from the world before the Tribulation. He said that when we see all these things converging—wars, rumors of wars, increase in the number and intensity of earthquakes, violent storms, and food shortages—we can know that His return is imminent.

So, what can you do?

1. The most important thing you need to do is to get born again if you are not yet born again. What does the term “born again” mean? It means to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord so that you can experience the new birth He died to give you. You see, when we were born physically into this world, we received a fallen, corrupted spirit that separated us from God. Jesus wants to give us a new spirit that connects us back to God. Jesus died and paid the price for the sin that caused our corrupted spirits in the first place and, in exchange, He gives us eternal life. So, the first order of business is to get born again. Do it now!

How?

1. Acknowledge before God that you are a sinner.
2. Repent of your sin. This means turn away from it and go in the opposite direction. 
3. Receive Jesus into your heart by asking Him to come in.

Once you do these three things, you become a child of God (John 1: 12). And as His child, You become eligible for His blessings. One of His blessings includes financial provision. He promises in Philippians 4: 19 that He will supply all your need. This means that He will provide everything you need because you are His child. He will not allow you to go hungry or without clothing and shelter. He will make a way where they seems to be no way. 

He also promises never to leave you nor forsake you. This means that no matter what happens in your life, He will be right there with you, seeing you through and, if necessary, carrying you through.

2. The next step in preparing for the upcoming financial crisis and the famine is to pray. Prayer is a two-way conversation with God. Listen for His voice as you pray. He will give you specific instructions as to what steps to take to prepare for the difficult days ahead. He will give you ideas you’ve never thought of to provide for yourself and your family. Talking to God in prayer is man’s highest privilege. In prayer, we tell God about what’s troubling us, and we listen for His advice. Imagine! As children of God, we have the privilege of having a conversation with the God of the Universe, the God Who created us and knows us better than anyone else knows us.

3. The third step is to read the Bible every day. The Bible will give you instructions on how to live in peace and joy by obeying God’s commandments. The Bible is the manual that explains how life works, just as a car manual is a manual that explains how your car works. 

4. Stock up on some food, water, and other necessary provisions for the future while you can. We do not know how long it will be before Jesus returns, so it is wise to prepare ahead. Just as the Lord instructed Joseph in the Old Testament to store up wheat during the seven years of plenty before the seven years of famine, so should we store up some food for tough times ahead. 

5. Do not fear! Above all, do not be afraid. You can trust Your Heavenly Father with Your life. He will never fail you.

Before you leave, please check out my featured book of the week, The Italian Chronicles, listed below. All three novels are available for only $9.69 for a limited time only on Amazon. The trilogy would make a great and inexpensive Christmas gift for the reader in your life.

Hello and Happy Day! This is Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, novelist and life coach, welcoming you to another episode of Winning with the Word. Today is Monday, October 31, 2022, and this is Episode #32 of Series 2022. This episode is titled “God Does Not Make You Sick!”

_________________________________________

There is a common misconception among people that bad things come from God. I often say that God is the most maligned person in the universe! Imagine how you would feel if someone accused you of making him sick or of bringing some tragedy upon his life. Well, God is a person and He has feelings, too. So the next time you’re tempted to blame God for bad things, think twice.

When we think of bad things, sickness is at the top of the list. Just as God does not cause evil, so does He not cause sickness. Sickness comes from Satan, period! When Adam and Eve yielded to Satan’s temptation, sin and sickness entered the world. And they’ve been here ever since!

But the good news is that Jesus Christ freed us from sin and sickness when He died for us and rose from the dead. The Bible tells us that the Blood of Jesus shed on the Cross paid the penalty for our sin. The stripes He took on His back in the scourging at the pillar paid the price for our sickness. Jesus took 39 stripes–or lashes–on His back. Interestingly, there are 39 categories of disease as outlined by the medical profession. So Jesus took a lash for eve ry category of disease, which means that He covered every disease.

When we take Holy Communion, we take both bread and wine. The bread represents the lashes that Jesus took on His back in payment for our sickness. The wine represents the blood He shed in payment for our sin. Bread and Wine. Blood and Lashes. Healing and Forgiveness. Both are in the Atonement.

Have you ever wondered why it is easy for people to accept God’s forgiveness but difficult to accept His healing? The reason is that forgiveness has been taught more than healing. And the Bible says that faith comes by hearing. What we hear often enough we will eventually believe.

Healing has not been taught in our churches as a rule. In fact, there has been much preaching against healing. Some pastors have taught that healing is not for today, that it ended with the Apostles. But the Bible says that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The Bible also says that Jesus loves all people equally. So why would He heal people back then and not heal us now? Why would He not heal today if He never changes?

If we just used our heads, we’d see the fallacy in the teaching that healing is not for today.

Perhaps as you read or listen to this message, you are in need of healing. If so, I would like to pray for you now.

Father God, in the Name of Jesus, I come to You on behalf of the person reading or listening who needs healing. With the authority You have given me in Your Name, I command every spirit of infirmity to leave their bodies now. In the Name of Jesus, I release the healing power of the Holy Spirit into every cell of their body. I call them whole and healed in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Expect God to heal you. Expect Him to be faithful to His promise in His Word. Then write to me to tell me of the wonderful healing He has wrought in your life.

While healing of the body is a great gift, healing of the spirit is far greater. If you have not yet been born again, I urge you to pray this prayer with. me now:

Lord Jesus, I repent of my sin. I want to make You the Lord of my life. I acknowledge that You alone can save me and that there’s nothing I can do on my end to get into Heaven.  I repent of trying to earn my way to You. I ask You to forgive me and to cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I receive You now as my Savior and my Lord. Thank You for saving me. In Your Name I pray. Amen.

If you sincerely prayed this prayer, welcome to God’s family! Please write down today’s date. It is your spiritual birthday. And please write to me at drmaryann@maryanndiorio.com. I would like to send you a free PDF booklet titled After You’re Born Again. This booklet will help you to get started in your walk with Jesus.

I also encourage you to get a Bible and read it every single day. The Bible is God’s love letter to you, His manual for your life. In the Bible, God reveals Who He is, and He teaches you how to live.

Finally, ask the Lord to lead you to the church of His choice for you where you can learn Truth and experience fellowship and encouragement with other Christ-Followers. It is critically important in these last days to fellowship with other believers who are mature in Christ and who can guide you as you grow in Him.

Hello and Happy Day! This is Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, novelist and life coach, welcoming you to another episode of Winning with the Word. Today is Monday, October 24, 2022, and this is Episode #31 of Series 2022. This episode is titled “Are You in Bondage to Legalism?”

_________________________________________

I grew up in a very legalistic denomination where the concept of salvation by works was given equal importance as the concept of salvation by grace. This false teaching caused me great spiritual distress over the years and placed unnecessary burdens on me, resulting in bondage that took me a long time to get rid of.  

So what are some of the signs of a legalistic spirit?

1. Perfectionism. People under bondage to legalism tend to be perfectionists who are hard on others and even harder on themselves. This is also called “performance syndrome.” Such people think that if they just do a bit more—for example, read the Bible more, pray more, do more good works—they will earn God’s approval and His love.  They have trouble accepting a free gift, any gift for which they did not work, at least in part.

2. Lack of assurance of salvation. Those in bondage to legalism often doubt their salvation because they feel they have to do good works in order to be saved. They do not understand that their good works profit them nothing as far as getting into heaven is concerned. Good works determine our rewards only after we get into Heaven. But legalists have difficulty accepting that truth.

3. Difficulty overcoming sin. A person in bondage to legalism has trouble accepting God’s grace. The legalistic person has the attitude that there’s no free lunch, even when it comes to salvation. Well, he’s right that there’s no free lunch, but he fails to understand that Jesus paid for our salvation by dying on the Cross and rising from the dead.

4. A critical spirit. Legalists often criticize those with whom they don’t agree. This critical spirit stems out of a failure to receive God’s unconditional love. 

5. Bondage to religious tradition. Legalists believe that repeated practices and protocols win them favor with God and, hence, entrance into Heaven. They resist change because, as they say, “This is the way we’ve always done it.”  While God is unchangeable in His essence, He is not opposed to doing new things. 

There is a certain degree of pride in the person bound to legalism. That person believes that the Lord’s sacrifice was incomplete—not enough to save him—and that the person himself has to earn at least part of his salvation. This is heresy. 

Also, the legalistic person has not yet grasped that God loves him unconditionally, probably because his earthly father or mother did not love him unconditionally. The legalistic person, therefore, feels that he must continually strive to earn the grade.

If you are in bondage to legalism, the first thing you need to do is to experience God’s unconditional love for you. If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, I urge you to do so now.

Pray this simple prayer with me:

Lord Jesus, I repent of my sin. I want to make You the Center of my life. I acknowledge that You alone can save me and that there’s nothing I can do o my end to get into Heaven.  I repent of legalism. I ask You to forgive me and to cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I receive You now as my Savior and my Lord. Thank You for saving me. In Your Name I pray. Amen.

If you sincerely prayed this prayer, welcome to God’s family! Please write down today’s date. It is your spiritual birthday. And please write to me at drmaryann@maryanndiorio.com. I would like to send you a free PDF booklet, titled After You’re Born Again. This booklet will help you to get started in your walk with Jesus.

___________________________________________________________________________

Hello and Happy Day! This is Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, novelist and life coach, welcoming you to another episode of Winning with the Word. Today is Monday, July 25, 2022, and this is Episode #30 of Series 2022. This episode is titled “The Four C’s of a Great Marriage.”

_________________________________________

My younger daughter was married two weeks ago to a wonderful, Godly man in a beautiful ceremony. The officiating pastor gave a wonderful message on the three C’s of marriage: Companionship, Commitment, and Covenant. I would like to expound on that message here and add another C: Communication.

Let’s explore each of these four C’s of a great marriage one by one.

1. COVENANT. The most important point about a marriage is that it is a covenant. A covenant is more than a contract. According to Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, the precursor of today’s Webster’s Dictionary, a covenant is “a binding agreement.” In other words, a covenant imposes an obligation on the part of each party to keep the agreement until the death of one of the parties.

Whereas a contract involves two people, a covenant involves three: the man, the woman, and God. Because God is involved in a covenant, it is deemed by Him to be unbreakable. Hence, His warning in Mark 10: 9 NASB: “Therefore, what God has joined together, no person is to separate.” A covenant, therefore, is sealed with a vow before God to honor the covenant until death. 

2. COMMITMENT. The strength of a marriage depends on the integrity of the husband and the wife to remain committed to the marriage no matter what the cost of that commitment. Every marriage will have its trying times. Trials are part of God’s plan to conform us to the image of Christ. Just as making a muscle strong requires repeated resistance, so does making a marriage strong require repeated trials. 

One of the most important lessons I’ve learned about marriage and about life, in general, is that God’s goal for us is not our happiness but our holiness. Trials help to make us holy if we maintain the Biblical perspective toward trials. Trials are for our spiritual growth. But whether we grow or not through our trials depends on our attitude toward them. 

Something amazing happens when we resist and overcome trials. We not only become holy; we also become happy.

3. COMMUNICATION. Good communication is key in cultivating a good marriage. The Bible is full of principles for good communication. Here are a few of them:

__James 1: 19 – “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” 
__Proverbs 10: 19 – “When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.”
__Proverbs 12: 18 – “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

4. COMPANIONSHIP. When the three elements above–Covenant, Commitment, and Communication–are put into practice, then beautiful, intimate companionship follows. Companionship is oneness of soul. The Word says that in a marriage, the two become one flesh (Mark 10: 8). The flesh is comprised of both the body and the soul. Therefore, “one flesh” does not mean only physical oneness. It also means oneness of soul. 

My husband and I have been married for 52 years. We continually implement these four C’s of marriage, and we can tell you that they work. A good marriage is built by keeping Christ at the center of your life and at the center of your marriage.

If Jesus is not yet the center of your life, make Him so right now. Pray this simple prayer with me:

Lord Jesus, I repent of my sin. I want to make You the Center of my life. I ask You to forgive me and to cleanse me of all unrighteousness. I receive You now as my Savior and my Lord. Thank You for saving me. In Your Name I pray. Amen.

If you sincerely prayed this prayer, welcome to God’s family! Please write down today’s date. It is your spiritual birthday. And please write to me at drmaryann@maryanndiorio.com. I would like to send you a free PDF booklet, titled After You’re Born Again. This booklet will help you to get started in your walk with Jesus.

I also encourage you to get yourself a Bible and read it every single day. The Bible is God’s love letter to you, His manual for your life. In the Bible, God reveals Who He is, and He teaches you how to live.

Finally, ask the Lord to lead you to the church of His choice for you where you can learn Truth and experience fellowship and encouragement with other Christ-Followers. It is critically important in these last days to fellowship with other believers who are mature in Christ and who can guide you as you grow in Him.
