Heart Jesus saved me from poker obsession

Hello and great new year to you.

im here today 2017, 3.5 years after Jesus took me out from mental asylum and revealed Himself and the love of God for me. His love is so great and loves even the most blackened sinner and that is why He often chooses weird people like me, totally unworthy of this holiness.

Before i let Jesus in my heart i was highly addicted on poker. I could play whole days and then even on the night and when i was "done" i had no money left. I was like that for ~10 years. Actually, it took not long after my first poker session until i had learnt how it feels to be bankrupt. But here comes the catch, i do find it as a valuable lesson. I think its great to not value money as others do. I have to add, before they locked me down in asylum, i was pretty much homeless and my shoes did not fit a beggar.

I shared some of my story at another poker forum. A swedish site where i signed up in the beginning of my "career" and it took only a few post of this kind where i wanted to share my support with others with gambling problems, and i had a perm-ban. they deleted some of my posts at the same time also but when i looked today, it says i have done 3003 post's. (if you dont believe me, look here , my nick is "joeduck" )

i was 33 years old when Jesus came to my heart and i know it as the age of Jesus when they crucified Him and He rose from death also.

banning someone with real experience is a big shame really but we are not be suprised. Jesus has forewarned and said we are going to be banished from the "synagouges" and even murdered by ppl who believe they are doing God a favour.

Ok, God bless you all and never forget the name of the Savior.

When those people, being called of themselves Christian, ask you, “To which church do you belong?”, you shall answer them, “I belong to no church named of men. I belong to The Lord, YahuShua HaMashiach, whom you call Jesus and Christ. And together with all those who are His is The Church in which I dwell.”

Re: Jesus saved me from poker obsession

Hi again,


just noticed a huge error from my post:

i know Him as eternal and afaik, always have done that. (even though remembering Him has probably been impossible in the worst kind of trials)



bonus:
dont "change god" to allah pls. it was what i did just a week or so before they locked me down.

and i have Gods Word to share also:

Quote:
I Am as I always Was and will Be. I Am Eternal.

My Church will remain standing, for I Am the Church, until the end of time.

Your beloved Jesus

Fine, but, why are you posting this on 2+2? Surely there is better audience for this type of message? Have you surely been ridden of your obsession?

Think some Jewish guy said something similar about the word God somewhere along the way.

the opposite of what you say and seems to think is true. dont take it hard brother, thats normal.

im posting it here where it belongs. im testifying about how i came to belief and im caring about my brother and sisters who are stuck in this ****.

also, i happen to have Gods Word backing it up:

Quote:
Jesus said: “My people, the best way to have people come to believe in Me, is to have someone give a personal testimony on how and why that person came to believe in Me. You all have free will and I will not violate what you choose to do for your life. If you truly desire to come to heaven with Me, you need to ask Me to forgive your sins, and let Me be the Master of your life. Giving your will over to Me takes great faith, but you will have your eternal reward with Me in heaven. Your people prefer to hear a personal testimony because you all are familiar with your human condition. This is another reason why I became a God-man so you would know that I went through all of what you have experienced. I gave you testimony that I was God by My miracles, and I showed you My love relationship by dying for all of you on My cross. I want all of you to seek a love relationship with Me, because I am all loving with everyone. Whenever you pray to Me, you are showing Me your love and thanks for all that I do for you every day.”

and about my obsession, yes i have not played poker more than a handfull of times in like five years and i can only thank Jesus for this.

but i cant say that im without fault, because i think it were like two years after He created me new heart that i tried poker again, and i actually played like i did before - until i was broke on my avalaible bank accounts which meant i had not food for money. not that i cared so much about the money anylonger but it was more like a broken trust in The Lord.

remember this proverb from the bible: "The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the LORD."

also, i had several others addictions that He has helped me with.
just to make it short i can give you the list from my memory right now:
tobacco - i used "snus" and smoked since i was a teenager , and same with coffee, and porn (highly addicted on the lesbian moviez), cannabis, alcohol - both beer and strong drinks, and i have "tried" many drugs in my earlier years - mostly psycho things and uppers - and its only Jesus who i can thank for not being stuck again.

then there is also a huge misuse of love and friends in my life thats an ongoing project together with the project to bless my enemies - thats really something to think on.
