“OPENING YOUR HEART TO CHRIST” EXERCISE

“Open your hearts to Christ.  Go out to meet Him.  Quench your thirst at His Spring.  He offers a Water Which will satisfy your thirst for Truth, for Joy, for Happiness, for Love ---a Water Which satisfies your thirst for the Infinite and the Eternal, since the Water He gives will become in you a ‘Spring of Water welling up to Eternal Life’” (John 4:14)   Pope John Paul the Great  

A 5 - STEP SPIRITUAL EXERCISE THAT WILL BEGIN TO QUENCH YOUR THIRST FOR WISDOM,  WHICH WILL ALSO HELP YOU GET THE GRADES YOU WANT. This Exercise is based on PSALMS 1 & 119 which promises success to those who meditate* on Scripture.

* THE HEBREW KIND OF MEDITATION WHICH WAS RECITING MEMORIZED SCRIPTURES BACK TO GOD.

As you read the MYSTICAL CITY OF GOD, you will come to see that this was basically how the Mother of God prayed.  Scripture tells us how effective Her prayers were, 200 gallons of wine for a wedding feast. (JOHN 2).  Thus, the Lord has provided us with a most powerful mediator for us with Himself as He is the Perfect Mediator between us and the Heavenly Father.

STEP 1.  Have someone hold you accountable daily for completing the exercise. 

STEP 2   Read a portion of the Bible daily. (Reading just 100 verses/day will enable you to read the entire Bible in less than 1 year.) 

STEP 3   Memorize at least 1 verse/day from the Bible.  Seek out especially those verses which speak to your heart and include verses  which everyone should memorize such as the entire 10 Commandments, (Exodus 20) and the Sermon on the Mount,  (Matthew 5 – 7) 

STEP 4   Recite the verse(s) often during the day and when trying to go to sleep. 

STEP 5   Engraft by personalizing such as in our examples. 

COMMITTING SCRIPTURE TO MEMORY 

The best way to memorize is simply to repeat the passage over and over out loud until it is committed to memory.  

Begin with Psalm 23.  The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want … 

Reciting this Psalm before lighting up draws down God's help to quit smoking.

This is one of many comforting passages we can recite when our lives are full of trials, along with Psalms 27, 42, 43, 107 & 139. 

EXAMPLES OF PERSONALIZING BIBLE VERSES 

STEP 5 is to personalize Bible verses to make them very real to you.  This personalizing comes from the heart and will normally be different for everyone. 

Psalm 23:  Thank You Lord  for being my Shepherd, now I shall not want… 

Psalm 27:  Thank You Lord for being my Light and my Salvation, now I have nothing to fear… 

Philippians 4:8 and 2 Corinthians 10:5 Lord, by Your Grace, my thoughts will only be about what is Noble, Righteous, Pure and lovely and I will dwell only on whatever is admirable and worthy of praise, thus bringing every thought of mine into captivity into obedience to You O Lord.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8.  Thank You Lord for helping me be patient and kind.  I choose with Your Grace not to boast or to be proud or envious.  I will not be rude or self-seeking and will not become easily angered.  I will not keep a record of wrongs but will rejoice in the truth.  I will bear all things for love of You and will keep on believing, hoping and persevering. 

Romans 8:28  All things work together for good for me because I belong to Him.

Just one verse/day and in no time you will have memorized whole chapters, and whole passages of Scripture like the 10 Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount. 

This incredible program helped me get all A’s except for the times, I was downgraded for being politically incorrect while a College of Agriculture student. An engineering professor challenged me: "I have taught this course for 5 years and you were the first student to get 100% on my toughest test."  He thought that I cheated. My high school average without the program was "D."  I only got accepted into college due to having been in the military.  The Bible promises that those who meditate* on Scripture will be smarter than their teachers  (Psalm 119).  

* Meditation:  The Hebrew method, that is reciting from memory passages of Sacred Scripture.  We like sheep chewing the cud can ruminate our Scriptures until we digest them. The Mother of God did this.   She asked and received 200 gallons of wine. How much would we have received if we had asked?

THE KEY TO PROGRAM’S SUCCESS IS THE ACCOUNTABILITY PART.   

SOMETIMES I RECEIVED A LOWER GRADE IN A COLLEGE COURSE DUE TO BEING POLITICALLY INCORRECT.  On 1 term paper, I  received grades of "A" and "D"(2 different teachers.) BUT IT IS ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO BE CORRECT RATHER THAN POLITICALLY CORRECT, ESPECIALLY WHEN CONSIDERING 

The Lie of the Century--Evolution. 

Charles Darwin said that if evolution were true, the evidence would be found in the fossil record in the form of innumerable transitional fossils.   NONE HAVE EVER BEEN FOUND.     THIS PROVES THAT MACROEVOLUTION NEVER HAPPENED.  MICROEVOLUTION IS SIMPLY VARIATION.   FOR MORE INFO:
