36 Scriptural Reasons for Financial Problems
by Geri McGhee

In searching for answers to financial problems, the Lord has revealed to me there are at least 36 Scriptural reasons for financial problems. I trust this Word study will bless your life as it has mine. This is not a gimmick nor is it an appeal for money. My intent is to bless the body of Christ.

A Curse ALWAYS Has a Cause
by Geri McGhee

The word “curse” means a malevolent appeal to a supernatural being for harm to come to somebody or something, or the harm that is thought to result from this or to appeal malevolently to a supernatural being for harm to come to somebody or something. If a curse is working in our life, it will always have a cause.

An Idol is Lurking Behind Your Anger
by Geri McGhee

Anger is the fruit of idolatry. Are you aware of the fact there is an idol or idols lurking behind your anger? There is only one-way to overcome it; and that is, to lay down the idol behind each specific area of your anger. We get angry because we expect others to bow down and worship our false gods and to love our idols as much as we do.

Are You Salt That Has Lost Its Flavor?
by Geri McGhee

In today’s world, the Church needs the qualities of salt. To the Christian of today, Jesus tells us to be the “salt of the earth.” In fact, in Matthew 5:13, He says, “You are the salt of the earth.” Read this article to do a "flavor check" on your Christian Walk.

Born Again
by Geri McGhee

Just what does it mean to be "born again?" It cannot be adequately described except to say, a life has been transformed and a person no longer has a desire to live the way he once lived. When we are truly "born again" (saved), we are given the gift of repentance which enables us to turn from sin and causes us to desire obedience to Jesus. Why is it that some 80-90% of persons professing to be Christians have never been "born again?"

Breaking Demonic Defaults
by Geri McGhee

When parents fail to train their children in the way they should go, it sets a demonic default in the life of that child that continues on into adulthood; and if, not broken follows him/her right into the grave. As children, we consciously or unconsciously promise ourselves that when we grow up life is going to be different; only to find out that as adults, we are in some ways reliving our childhood. As adults, we try to break out of these childhood patterns; but, the way we were set at the factory through childhood training, keeps kicking us back into the default of the way we were raised.

Can a Christian Have a Demon?
by Tim Laughlin

Deliverance is the children's bread, it is not for the unbeliever although through God's grace and mercy He pours out His power on all that entreat Him. The question should not be, "Can a Christian have a demon," but, "Can a demon have a Christian?" The answer is yes!

Discerning Strange Fire from the Real Fire
by Geri McGhee

For the most part, discernment has been lost in the Church. God's children who should be steeped in the Word of God are not; and as a result, do not know how to separate what is 'Holy' from what is of the 'flesh' (profane).

God's Remedy for Pain
by Geri McGhee

There is physical, mental and emotional pain. The best the world can do for us is to try to manage our pain and to help us cope. God heals it if we meet His conditions.

Hardness of Heart
by Geri McGhee

Your heart is vitally important. Your heart has much to do with how God moves in your life. A person may want to receive healing and deliverance but hardness of heart blocks him from the Truth which sets him free.

How to "Change" Others
by Geri McGhee

In order for others to change, we must first change ourselves. Jesus said in Matthew 7:3 “And why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” In other words, Jesus is telling us that, before we can tell our neighbors what’s wrong with them, we’d best have “our own backyard” cleaned up.

How to Forgive
by Geri McGhee

It is critical that we forgive. This universe operates according to God's well-crafted design, and human relationships are no exception. In order for us to live the abundant life as the Word of God promises us and to experience healing and release from devastating relationships and circumstances, we must practice the principle of forgiveness.

How to Have Faith
by Geri McGhee

In Galatians 3:26 it says, “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.” The faith I am addressing in this message is not salvation faith: the greatest of all miracles. This is about the faith to believe God for day-to-day miracles of provision, healing and deliverance with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Logs and Specks
by Geri McGhee

Judging with righteous judgment is seeing a situation through the eyes of Jesus. It is using what you see for kingdom principles to pray for and/or help the other person to bring about healing, restoration and reconciliation. Unrighteous judging is using what you see with a prideful, critical, condescending, negative, bitter or angry attitude.

Mental Illness
by Geri McGhee

Having some type of a mental disorder is a serious problem that plagues our society and the Church today; in society, for obvious reasons, and in the Church because repentance, for the most part, is not taught.

Overcoming Fear, Anxiety & Stress
by Geri McGhee

Finding refuge in anything else other than God is idolatry. Being outside of His refuge in any given area is at the root of all fear, anxiety and stress in our lives. Failure to come into God's refuge which produces "rest" and is "the perfect love that casts out fear" is at the root of all autoimmune diseases and the majority of our physical problems

Reproof
by Geri McGhee

The dictionary definition of reproof is a reason offered for or against a proposition, opinion, or measure; a reason offered in proof, to induce belief, or convince the mind; followed by for or against. Since "reproof" in the Hebrew means argument, a person must be willing to lay aside their own argument and embrace God's argument. They must be a person who is willing to receive the discipline of being corrected and through repentance choose God's way.

Senior Citizens Can Know Who They Are
by Geri McGhee

Growing old doesn't have to be the twilight years for those who serve Jesus. In fact, it can become one of the most productive times in the earthly life of a Christian.

Swallowed Up!
by Geri McGhee

We are either in God’s refuge swallowed up by His life being "hidden with Christ with God" or we are "swallowed up in a false refuge" and being covered by a false god. Of course, behind all false gods and idols is satan. Being "swallowed up" in a false refuge blocks healing and deliverance as a person who is "swallowed up" is dull of understanding which is necessary to having the knowledge that keeps you from perishing.

Soul Ties
by Geri McGhee

Through “Soul Ties,” you can carry the familiar spirits, the addictions, sicknesses, characteristics, ideas, habits, opinions and emotions, etc. of the persons with whom you have a soul tie. Many people are looking to the world to find solutions to their problems when the answer could lie in a soul tie. There have been many occasions when I have seen people instantly healed of pain when soul ties are broken.

The Power of Words
by Geri McGhee

In just 6 days, God spoke the world and humanity into existence. With our words we can speak things into existence. There is power in our words. Words are creative either for good or evil. Words either bind or they loose. Words can be destructive or constructive; they can build up or they can tear down. With them we can hate or love, heal or make sick.

The Source of Evil Thoughts
by Geri McGhee

The Bible clearly teaches that evil thoughts proceed from the heart. James 1:14 says each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. In other words, we can only be tempted by the defilements that have been stored or planted down in our hearts. Evil thoughts come out of a part of our hearts that are unsanctified and in need of cleansing.

The Unloving Spirit
by Geri McGhee

In order for us to love others we must first be able to love ourselves. Not with a prideful, arrogant kind of love but with God's love and valuation of us. The way we love others will reflect how we love ourselves. The biggest hindrance to us loving ourselves is an "unloving spirit".

Train Up a Child in Way He Should Go
by Geri McGhee

God commands fathers to train up their children in the way they should go according to the Word of God. The majority of our problems are rooted in the lack of proper discipline and training according to the Word of God.

Unforgiveness
by Geri McGhee

God will forgive us only to the extent we can forgive others and our self. Forgiveness is not an emotion but it is a choice. We do not have to feel like it, want to forgive, like to forgive, think it is fair to forgive or even that those we are having a problem with are worthy of our forgiveness. We choose to forgive because we love God and want to obey and please Him more than we want to hold on to unforgiveness.

Watch Over Your Heart
by Geri McGhee

Many people are distressed and perplexed by the influx of trash and perversion that continually fills their minds, bringing defeat and failure to their lives. Some relish the thoughts, while the godly are tormented, never realizing just how they got there. Even though the Bible explicitly says in Psalms 101:3, "I will set no worthless thing before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not fasten its grip on me," it is no wonder why there is no victory or holiness in the lives of believers.

Why Life Does Not Go So Well
by Geri McGhee

Deuteronomy 5:16 says 'Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with you on the land which the Lord your God gives you.’ Every problem in life can be traced back to the breaking of this one commandment. It is a Scriptural truth that life will go well for us in every area we could honor our mother and father and life will not go well for us in any area we did not or could not honor our mother or father.
