Quit Smoking Now

Do NOT Tempt the Lord Your God
Quit Now in Jesus Name

The following is an exchange of emails between a struggling saint and myself.  It tells a a story that you may need to hear.  I pray it witnesses to you in time to avoid regret that may have eternal consequences.  Take this before the Lord in prayer.

GOD BLESS YOU

 

THE LETTERS

I am a Christian and love the Lord with every fiber of my being. In these last days we’re living in, it is critically important to stay in constant prayer and repentance, to be found worthy of Him when He comes. But I have been struggling with the addiction to cigarettes. I pray daily, sometimes several times a day, for the Lords help to stop smoking. I have tried every method that is available with no success and lately I am on my knees, weeping and literally begging for the Lords help. I have given it to the Lord, but then I take it back over and over, not knowing if He would have me continually try to quit. Usually when He speaks to me, it’s a gentle nudge but this thought of quitting is a driving force, always on my mind. Maybe because our time is so very short….I’m just not sure. I’ve always been taught that we must give over our problems to God, and wait for His answer. But with this, I don’t want to wait because I certainly don’t want something like this to get in the way of my salvation. I don’t even know if it will but I don’t want to take that chance! Aside from this, I strive to walk a holy life, always praying and seeking God’s guidance, as well as telling others about Him.

 

MY RESPONSE

It is with great empathy that I tell you what I am about to tell you. I deeply feel your pain in this struggle.

There is only one thing that I know of that can make a person quit smoking. Fear. Powerful fear. The kind of fear that words cannot describe. The problem we have as “itchy ears” Christians of the 20th and 21st Century is that we were never taught the fundamentals of Christianity. Fire and brimstone teachings were washed away with the “once saved always saved” devils doctrine. When Jesus said “If your eye offends thee pluck it out” … He meant it. Jesus wasn’t kidding.

Matt 18:8-9

8 “If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. 9 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.
NKJV

Let me tell you I tried every trick in the book to reason with God over smoking. Even though I KNEW my own mother was spoken to “out loud” by God to “put that cigarette down!!!” and that the book I read by Charles and Francis Hunter made it extremely clear the “smoking was sinning”, I kept thinking it would be okay with Jesus. Jesus would cut me a special break on smoking.

This verse has always worried me.

1 Cor 3:17
7 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
KJV

But the FINAL straw was when I prayed in tears and opened up a 400,000 word Thesaurus and it fell open to a page with the word “BACKSLIDDEN

The Lord knew that I was horrified about missing the rapture of the Bride.

Eph 5:27
(…) that He might present her to Himself a glorious church [“Bride”], not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
NKJV

My Bible studies, which are arguably extremely advanced, have taught me that being a “Wise Virgin” (Matthew 25) and making the rapture includes a “possible” (but not guaranteed) invitation to the Wedding Supper. ALSO there is a book which I agree with entitled The 1,000 Year Millennium of Jesus Christ … Will You Make It?. You see, people don’t realize that they are not only jeopardizing their eligibility for the rapture of the Bride, but they are jeopardizing their “eternal standing” in the Kingdom of Jesus Christ through forfeited “Inheritance”.

Gal 5:19-21
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
NKJV

When I opened up that Thesaurus (called “casting of lots”) and saw the impossible word from the Lord “backslidden”, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I was NOT going to make the rapture for sure and it might be MUCH worse.

I burst into tears and cried my way to Walgreens and bought the 22 mg Nicoderm clear patches. I quit drinking ANY alcohol and I MADE DARN SURE that I was not around ANY temptation.

There is ONE other time I quit smoking in my life prior to this last time. Cancer. I received an intermediate diagnosis of possible throat cancer and it scared me so desperately bad that I cried and cried and cried for hours and hours in my bed to the Lord. I was HORRIFIED. Praise Jesus the final diagnosis was not cancer, but I QUIT SMOKING just the same.

FEAR ….

Do NOT wait until you are being escorted to HELL by a seething demon to have enough FEAR to quit.
QUIT NOW
IN JESUS NAME

Ps 111:10
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom
NKJV

Matt 7:14
Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
NKJV

Matt 4:5
7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.'”
NKJV

  1. Your conversion is in line with a challenge I have to addressed now and quit from it before it is too late. I have a problem of LUST which our Lord Jesus Christ spoke against it. Please help me to come out of thing ungodly character. With much humility please help me.

  2. I too am trying to quit smoking. I fear not making the rapture and I am scared to death of Gods wrath! I love God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit with all that God made me. I have prayed and continue to pray for deliverance from this addiction and these cigarettes. I know God hears my prayers but what else do I do? I have no money right now to go buy the patch but I don’t want to miss the rapture at all! Please help me.

    1. I too once was a smoker for nearly 30 years. One day I just decided that I had had enough of the odour of it on my clothes in my hair and having bad breath all the time. Also having the thought of not being here in the future for my children, if I was to get cancer. So I just went cold turkey. I had read that “habits are nothing more than thoughts you keep thinking”, so when the thought of having a cigarette came up I immediately put that thought to something else, other than smoking. I set my focus on other things. This truly helped me, I had no cravings or desire for any, the days turn into weeks and soon into months.

    2. I couldn’t seem to set my mind right when it came to quitting. Tried everything. Reasoned with God. Chantix worked, but made me so sick. I finally tried this stuff called tabex. It’s not sold in the U.S. So, I ordered it online from tabex.net the only reason I am telling you where I ordered it was because I was a little Leary of taking a pill from some other country. These were legit. It is herbal. Called cytisine. It worked. Two and a half weeks clean. No serious withdrawals. No cravings during it. For me, it was always my own mind that did me in. This took the power away from the nicotine. I thank god for guiding me to do this!

  3. please help me find the real me i’m here doin gods will but have addictions i battled the evilness of drugs and so far so good ive beatin my demons but i have ciggarette addiction and a gambling addiction and would like you to pray for me that i find the strength to finally break free of all my unholy shackles brother godbless us all

  4. This Is a message from the LORD it’s long but let it bless you and help you all with addictions.
    I love you MY children. I love you and as surely as I live, as surely as I the sovereign GOD will always live, the enemy will hate you. MY children do you think he likes you, he does not like you how can he even love you. He cannot tolerate you. If it were not for MY hand of protection over you the enemy would have killed you and had you in the pits where you will understand the hate he has for ME and you. Be not deceived. You think the pleasure you have on the earth is nothing more than pleasure? No, it is sin. The pleasure of flesh is against the spirit. MY children please read this slowly understand it fully. He hates you, (the lord sounds sad) yes I am heartbroken by MY children who have perished. MY heart aches for each of them, each of them MY Spirit. Why do you choose the flesh over ME MY children? I can give you more but you choose him, the enemy I defeated long ago. His defeat was written long ago, before you were born. He hates you and he will do anything. Whatever it takes to have your soul in hell. He will do it. Through your family, through your friends. Your career. Your music. The things you watch. Everything that he can find that will get to you he will use, but he cannot use it unless you give him power. MY children, satan has no power. Do not entertain his evil ways he wants your soul in hell. In hell, do you know what is in hell my children? Do you?

    Snakes which make love to you. Smokers, homosexuals, drunkards, their punishment is severe. Even MY children who called themselves MY own, those who chose money over ME, those who were harsh in words, people who love wild parties, there are so many in hell MY children, so many being tortured. Yet some of you seem to think you can handle hell, that hell is a place of fun. You joke about hell being a party, a fun party where you drink and smoke and take part in your pleasure filled sins. Yes it is so, MY children you will party, you will drink, you will smoke you will fornicate for eternity MY children. It will indeed be a hot party, but believe ME you will find no pleasure in any of that. Only demons will find pleasure in hell’s possession of your soul. Drink: you will drink fire, you will drink acid you will drink burning liquid you will drink the most horrid painful things only satans demons find pleasure in. You will smoke things you never thought to smoke, and it will never end my children. You will be pierced with spears all over your bodies. All over your bodies you will be speared, stabbed, bitten, your flesh will be torn. You will cry for death but death will never come. You are made in MY Image, I am an ETERNAL BEING, and you cannot die. Yes fornicators will be pierced in the genitals. In the most painful of areas. Demons with thorns all over their body will make love to you. Worms will suck on your tongues. Ugly, horrific things will happen to you. That is the party you will be in forever. The party, the hot party in hell never ends my children. It never ends. There are no 6 to 6’s in hell. Only eternity, forever, and ever the torment will go on. Is a minute’s pleasure worth eternal torment MY children; really is it worth it MY children? How do you choose that over what I offer you? I offer you peace joy, eternal rest. I offer you life. I offer you the beauties of heaven. The finest GOD can give you. Do you not want to smile for eternity, do you not? What MY children is it not enough? Is to live to sin? How is it that you encourage this term of yours live a little?

    What is to live a little? Live on the earth sinfully, die and land up in hell? Is that to live a little? MY children listen to Me, you do not live a little. You will never live a little. You will live forever. When your soul departs from your body that is the beginning of eternity. Where will you spend it? In MY Kingdom, in MY presence, Or in hell? My children stop encouraging each other to sin, it is not right, it is unholy, it is evil, it is detestable.

    My children I told you I am going to tell you many things in these words, I tell you the truth and nothing else. Nothing but truth comes out of MY mouth; I have no reason to deceive those I love. No reason to lie. I am not man. I cannot lie. I cannot, it is not in MY being, and MY SPIRIT knows not to lie. I do not lie. My children, suicide, why do you commit suicide? Do not do it, I know MY children it’s hard, some of you your circumstances seem unbearable but just trust and believe that I God will work everything out in your favor. I have forgiven every sin. Even suicide, I have MY blood to cover suicide but I will explain to you why MY children, why suicide’s land up in hell. Suicides land up in hell, MY children because they could not repent. You cannot repent in hell. You cannot repent after the departure from your body. By the time you die there is no time for you to ask for forgiveness you have left the earth. You have been cut off from the earth my children remember this. Repentance is not for the grave, MY children. Repentance is for now. It is now. Do not waste time. Do not deceive yourselves thinking you will run away from your circumstances to a better place, you will find yourselves worse off than you were while on the earth MY children, but I ask you my children to come to me. Run to ME, I will comfort you in your sickness and in your pain. I am here for you. I will never turn my back on you. I will give you back everything that the devil stole from you. I, GOD will give you back your joy. Your peace and you worth., I god will mend you and put you back together for my own glory  because I love you and those who belong to me will not be mocked or destroyed by the enemy for I will be your GOD, Your PROTECTOR.              I am the Great “I AM.”  I can only protect you if you belong to Me. Call on MY name my children. Call on the name of JESUS. I am here.

    My children listen to ME. I have a complaint against you. Why do you betray each other MY children? Why do you betray and hurt your friends and your family. Why do you lie to each other? Why do you fight? Make peace today, MY children. Talk, forgive one another, stab crucifying each other and mocking and slandering your names. MY children this is not from ME. I command you to love each other as you love yourselves. Do not believe that you will enter MY kingdom if you hold any grudges, MY children. No no. Stop being hypocrites. Stop it. I do not go to MY Father and bad mouth you, I do not remind MY FATHER of the countless sins you performed. Forgive each other, help each other, respect, and do not break each others trust. Encourage each other in the LORD. In ME, encourage each other do not pull each other away from each other. MY church is to help each other. Stop judging each other, judgment is for God alone not for mere people. Judgment is MINE; MY judgment is fair and just. Do not hurt each other.

    MY children I am going to talk about porn again, I need you to understand MY children it is a sin. How dare you put what I made for privacy on display? Porn encourages sex out of marriage. Demons of lust enter into your body then you yield to your flesh and sin against your own body, through masturbation. Why masturbation is wrong you may ask yourself? It is sin MY children, I am not pleased with MY children lusting after each other, I am not pleased with the world telling my children to masturbate because it is natural, sex outside of ME, MY children is dangerous, demons make love to you. Do not do it. Do not watch porn, do not make porn, MY children, this includes your photos.  The photos you take the photos you look at. Listen to ME, you are grieving the HOLY SPIRIT, you are. , MY children please, the road to hell is very broad, the road to heaven is very narrow. Few find it.  I ask you now, what road are you walking on? Sex is for man and woman in marriage alone. Only in marriage, MY children you ask yourselves why and how you became so sexual, so promiscuous? Sex MY children, sexual demons are in you, ask ME to restore you and purify you MY children that you are found not guilty before a Holy GOD. Only I, GOD can deliver you from such sin. Yes only I, GOD.

    I am not done MY children; I have words, listen to ME, and listen to ME carefully. I am coming. I am coming very soon. I am coming so soon. Those who do not believe, those who doubt, your blood is on your own head. I have warned you over and over. Do not expect to see tomorrow, do not plan for next week, do not invest for retirement, do not watch and wait for you youth to end, do not stall, do not wait to turn to ME. I will come soon. I am coming now, I am on MY way. I am here. I am ready to leave with MY bride. I have sent the words out: Soon MY children. You will be shocked at the events’ that are about to take place before MY coming and after MY coming. Woe to you MY children who are left behind to face the antichrist. Woe to you. The time is now. Do not wait. Repentance is not for the grave. It is not.  I am coming with the voice of an arch angel and the sound of a trumpet. “I AM” is here!!!!!!!!! I love you all.”

        1. The Holy Bible is Gods personal message to us all so your end time revelations(even though they could be from THE God but Rev 1 tells us different) may be coming from the devilish sort; pride-I had a revelation, I am something special(even though we are all the same before God). Do not divide the body of Christ-church. Rom 10:17 tells us that faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the WORD OF GOD(Jesus Christ Himself trough the Text Receptus-KJV BIble).

          I am a person being in the progress of becoming a Christian. I ve fallen to seducing doctrines witch lead me astrey and addictions that i had(one of them is smoking) have come up again because i ve not given them to Jesus. Im struggeling but know that God is all powerful and can help. This article is amazing i would only like to add some Scripture to it:
          Thou shalt not kill-by smoking we kill ourself and our neighbours.
          Thou shalt love thine God with all your heart, mind and power and neighbour as thy self-how can we love God, if we hate our neighbour so much that we want to kill him with our smoking?

          As i ve said, i am struggeling and am only sharing what i know i should be doing. Sadly mostly im not doing it…

    1. Wow, why doesn’t the church teach this holiness anymore? I will quit smoking. Dear Lord forgive our, my, foolishness. Amen

      1. For you all who are struggling with smoking, I hope this helps- there is a book called ‘The Easyway to stop smoking, by Alan Carr’ it is brilliant, I was smoking at least 1 pack of 20 aday, – you continue to smoke as you read it, please trust me when I say I had no withdrawl pangs and was so happy to stop by the time I finished reading it. Best of luck and God bless you all and gives you strengh in your time of need.

    2. I needed that it was so beautiful thank you i just got baptized yesterday god bless you in jesus name a-men

  5. Not all smoking is sinful. The use of the factory made chemical filled cancer sticks, possibly because they are full of carcinogens and formaldhyde. If you grow your own tobacco and roll your own, then you know exactly what’s in them. As for addictions, keep everything moderate. Tobacco does have some medicinal use as all plants. It is petrochemical pharmaceuticals that one must watch out for because they are synthesized and man-made, not nature made. Jesus can help you battle any addiction, but do not say using a natural thing is a sin. It is what you use it for that counts. Don’t over do it and don’t fill it with chemicals.

    1. That’s good rationalizing, Tabitha. Like when I kept trying to recite “my Spirit is willing, Lord, but my flesh is weak.” I tried that on Him a few times until He led me to 1 Cor 3:17
      7 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
      KJV

      try to rethink it, Babe.

  6. When I read the words, “Usually when He speaks to me, it’s a gentle nudge but this thought of quitting is a driving force, always on my mind,” I knew this testimony was for me. I’ve come across all of the verses pertaining to this you listed and everytime it draws my thoughts back to a powerful drive to quit – not because I want to, really, because I believe Jesus has been trying to tell me He doesn’t grade on a curve, and He demands I not grieve the Holy Temple. Thank you. All of you. I feel strengthened through these comments and testimonies. God Bless.

    1. Amen, I Just got load of convictions from God himself and I just fell and prayed in tears and I felt so strongly that God himself led me to this testimony to warn me, and he have filled me with the fear of God ( the fear of god is a begining of wisdom ) AMEN GOD HAVE MADE ME LEAVE THE LUKEWARMNESS AND BACKSLIDDENESS THAT I WAS IN, AMEN HE HAVE MADE COMING CLOSER TO HIM AMEN THANK YOU GOD FOR HELP

  7. Honestly, I wish I hadn’t gone to this link. My daddy was one of those hell & brimstone preachers. I have felt all my life that the path is so narrow that no one can get into heaven. Just the last few years I’ve felt that God is a loving God, not waiting to drop the hammer. I’ve had a hard time with Grace, but finally accepting it. I love the Lord with all my heart. I feel I do so much right, but now I feel it’s all for nothing if I can’t give up cigarettes, which have been my only vice. I’m so sad.I really thought he would forgive my one weakness, that Grace would cover. Now, I feel I was right before. I strive for perfection in all things, just can’t make it in every area.

    1. Well you can always go to Walgreens and get the Nicoderm Patch and quit like I did. People are tying to purify themselves for the rapture of the Bride. The Bible says “Be Ye Holy for I am Holy” and we are not to defile the temple of God (1 Cor. 3:16). I LOVED SMOKING and was DEVASTATED when the Lord told me I was “backslidden” as a smoker. You can either buck-up and do the right thing for yourself and Jesus or you can give up and throw yourself at the mercy of God’s throne. I recommend you do what God’s word says and do everything you can to quit now. Don’t give up. Pray your heart out and seek righteousness like the Bible says. This is about making the rapture. Don’t risk this. The risk is not worth it.

      Eph 5:27-28
      … that He [Jesus] might present her [the Bride] to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
      NKJV

      DO NOT GIVE UP
      SEEK GOD
      PRAY
      PRAISE
      DO IT

      1. Amen I also got devastated when I got wisdom by this testimony that I was backslidden but God have made me fully leave all different kinds of thing that would hurt or grief the temple of the holy spirit ( my body ) AMEN AMEN AMEN PRAISE TO GOD

    2. lol Trust me, Gail – I FEEL YOUR PAIN. I’m looking foward to being able to run like the wind again. I haven’t been able to do that for many, many years.

    3. I prayed and tried to quit smoking and could not. I asked God to deliver me from my addiction by his grace. One day I layed across my bed and I told God I just couldn’t quit, he spoke to me and said, “I know you can’t “. I said to him then why won’t you deliver me. He spoke again and said “why do you ask me for what you already have”. I said what do you mean? He said ” I delivered you nearly 2000 years ago on Calvary “. Instantly it was quickened in me and I was instantly delivered and it was complete. I pray that when you read this the Holy Spirit quickens it in you also!

      1. This was what I neede- a simple epiphany! Why do I ask for what has already been give when its gift wrapped for me at the foot of the Ross- all I need is to repent of my unbelief and sin of choosing bondage over JESUS. When I read your testimony, that was all it took and though it’s early, I do believe I am free indeed

      2. I have been smoking for over 30 years. I’m a Christian and I know smoking is a sin. Your post really touched my heart. Never have I looked at it in this way. Praying that I can QUIT and never pick up this habit again. Thank you so much for your post. So glad you were able to quit.

        1. I couldn’t seem to set my mind right when it came to quitting. Tried everything. Reasoned with God. Chantix worked, but made me so sick. I finally tried this stuff called tabex. It’s not sold in the U.S. So, I ordered it online from tabex.net the only reason I am telling you where I ordered it was because I was a little Leary of taking a pill from some other country. These were legit. It is herbal. Called cytisine. It worked. Two and a half weeks clean. No serious withdrawals. No cravings during it. For me, it was always my own mind that did me in. This took the power away from the nicotine. I thank god for guiding me to do this!

      3. Been smoking for over 30 years. I’m a Christian but never looked at it this way. We were delivered when Jesus died on the cross. Praying that I will be able to quit. Thanks for sharing. Glad you were delivered from this terrible habit.

    4. We are saved by grace, not works. Be encouraged, sister. God loves you so much. You are His child and He loves you so much. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Look to Jesus. Let Him be your guide. In you, oh, lord, I put my trust. You are my rock, my fortress, my deliverer. Be blessed, sister. You are in the hands of a mighty God who loves and adores you. Nothing is impossible for Him. No mountain is too high. He will deliver you. You do not have to live in FEAR. Perfect love casts out all fear. God is love, indeed. May you know that you are loved so deeply and you know, when that becomes a reality in our lives and we truly grasp that, we fall in love with Jesus and our other desires melt away because we just have no space in our lives for the other stuff anymore. God transforms us and we become more and more like Him as we spend more time with Him. Give yourself a break. You are covered by grace.

  8. That’s exactly why I’m trying to quit. But, I’m using my reverence for the Lord to help me through it. I’ve backslidden a couple of times, but I’m determined. It’s the only reason, the Rapture, that makes any sense to me. Thanks for your words. I needed to hear them. God Bless.

  9. I too was once a smoker. I quit over twenty years ago with the Lord’s help.

    He spoke to me and told me he would help me to quit smoking through prayer. I must admit it did not happen overnight and it took a few times.

    Every time I had the desire to smoke, I would pray that the Lord would take it away. I also would remember how I felt after smoking a cigarette. (If you haven’t smoked as much and then have a cigarette, it makes you light headed and you feel sick). I figured it was not worth it.

    I hope this story would help someone else who struggles with this addiction.

    To God be the glory!

    1. 19 years ago our Lord Jesus helped me quit smoking also. I was crying to the Lord, talking to Him saying this, ” Lord, I want to quit smoking, at the same time, I want to smoke, please help me to stop.” Then He gave me this incredible strength of determination that I told myself,” This will be the last cigarette I will ever smoke.” I know that was what they call “cold turkey” and there were few occasions that I craved to smoke but I never did. Glory to our God the Father and our Lord Jesus forever more. After that, the smell of cigarettes disgusts me and the smoke suffocates me. Glory, glory to our God, amen. Hallelujah!

  10. I had quit smoking for a while, but truth to tell – I don’t want to survive in this world that’s in the making. I’m old and on my way out. I want to go home. My REAL home. If I thought God would judge my love for Jesus on this human fraility alone, then I would be one who just didn’t know God.
    I wasn’t smoking when Jesus died on the Cross for me. He went to the Cross for all our past, present and future sins.

    1. 1 Cor 3:16-17
      16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him.
      NKJV

  11. Nothing will work unless you are ready to quit. My problem is that I have lung cancer now. I’m not going to persue any medical methods because frankly, who wants to live in this world that’s fast coming upon us? There isn’t anything left for Christians here. The world has only Satan and the Great Tribulation and we have Jesus and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
    I’ll spend my days talking and trying to get people to open their eyes, and to get out of Babylon so-to-speak, but the scarey part is that even Christians don’t seem to see it!
    What I won’t do, is try to prolong my stay here. I’m old and frail now. I gave my life to Jesus many years ago. If my cigarettes would come between the love and worship I have for Him to send me to Hell, then salvation was never mine to begin with.
    Stop this, stop that. They seem more like legalistic rules made by man, not God.

    1. As long as you are alive, you can repent of your sins. Praise Jesus His grace is so powerful that our Father would forgive us over and over again as we struggle with our fleshy challenges. God Bless You I will see you in HEAVEN!

  12. Here is a response to an email sent to me regarding this subject:

    It is not a sin to seek medical treatment and take legally prescribed medications (Ref. Romans 13 – follow the law; and Luke was a medical doctor).

    It is not acceptable to the Lord to knowingly and willfully harm the temple body. This is also the same scripture that prevents people from committing suicide etc. (and more too).

    1 Cor 3:17
    17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
    NKJV

    Now all I can do is tell you what happened to me. I realize that people can argue until they are blue in their face (which I did for a long time), that smoking does not qualify for 1 Cor. 3:17 etc.

    Here is what happened to me.

    I was going through a phase where I was worried to death all the time. I was freaking out because I know how horrible the Great Tribulation (“GT”) is going to be for people left behind. I also realized that we only get ONE CHANCE to be the Bride of Jesus Christ and Rule and Reign with Him forever. I also realize that not all Christians who make it to heaven will be the same. There will be a hierarchy of leaders, Kings, and many who are will not be part of the Millennial Kingdom. So I was literally scared so bad that I was having a hard time sleeping and spent hours in tears.

    One day I sat in tears praying before the Lord about this smoking thing. I didn’t NOT want to quit. I believed the Lord should cut me a break because I was serving Him in so many other ways. I was wrong. Here is what happened.

    We, as followers of God, have the ability to “cast lots” (ref. Proverbs 8:18, Acts 1:26). In this case my “lots” was a Thesaurus with 300,000 words in it. I prayed and asked the Lord very very clearly “Will smoking keep me from being the Bride of Jesus Christ”?

    I closed my eyes and let the book fall open on its own.

    There before my eyes, the Thesaurus fell upon the word ….

    “Backslidden”

    I burst into tears crying out loud like a three year old child and drove to Walgreens to get the Nicoderm patch. I quit drinking for like 4 months to make sure that the Beer would not make me fall back into smoking. I was horrified. I never looked back.

    PRAISE JESUS I am now fully quit.

    That’s my testimony. I hope it helps you.
    God Bless You

    This is Tracey’s email response:
    ========

    Thank you! Thank you so much!!!
    Tonight’s the night I am on my way out to get the patch!!
    Praise Jesus
    Thank you!!!
    I can’t wait to give my testimony for this!! I feel delivered already!!!
    Thank You John
    Thank you Jesus!!’

    1. AMEN, ME TO BUT I BACKSLIDD TO SMOKE FOR A WEEK BUT AFTER THAT GOD TOUCHED MY HEART, I FEEL FULLY DELIVERED FROM ANY ACTIONS THAT WOULD BE HURTING THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRTI (MY BODY)

  13. I know. I hear “backslidden” in my Spirit all the time. I tried the patch but had terrible nightmares from it, but it’s an ongoing commitment of mine to succeed. Since Jesus has been my Lord and Savior, I’ve managed to leave everything behind but this – and since Jesus died for me, and broke Satan’s dominion over me, I know I’ll succeed.

    1. Hi Diane,
      I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH!!! I’m in it myself! Though I’ve not completely quit yet, John’s testimony has spoken to me today! AND, I’m really good at listening to excuses and mimicking them!
      A great Christian brother said to me recently, “you are so obsessed and conscious of your sin of smoking, you can’t let Jesus DO WHAT JESUS DOES!” If you QUIT SMOKING by YOUR WILLPOWER (even trying to please Him) you will have to MAINTAIN it ALWAYS by YOUR OWN WILLPOWER!
      This is just now beginning to make a lot of sense to me and has even already helped me to not desire cigarettes so much! I am so TRULY THANKFUL TO GOD…most especially in His grace, love, and patience with my human reasonings! I do know it’s not His will for any of us to hurt ourselves, not just for the quality of life, but also for being here and able to witness! This, to me, IS witnessing! God bless you and heal you and all of us in His great mercy! I look forward to meeting you in Heaven! Love in Christ, because of Christ always, Allison

  14. i too am struggling with cigarettes again. I quit for over 12 years for the Lord and then walked away from Jesus because i got mad at Him. Of course it was my fault not the Lords. anyway i came back to him a couple of years ago and he has been leading and helping me. He answers my prayers except about the cigarettes. i quit, i start back, i quit again. There is no relief for me. i am broken. i just got the patches and i am wearing one now and praying constantly that Jesus will take the want too smoke out of me. i can’t do this on my own. please pray for me and i will for those here too. I don’t want to miss heaven no matter what. Unlike most of you i believe in post tribulation so i am ready to die for Jesus. Its weird i can say off with the head but don’t take the smokes. i argue with myself constantly on how stupid that sounds.

  15. I too quit smoking & went back to it a number of times. After I accepted Jesus as my Savior & Lord in Oct 1978, I still smoked & drank. One day in 1980, I felt God’s leading to quit smoking. I knew I could not do this on my own. So that day on my way to work, I prayed & I asked God to make smoking obnoxious to me… that even the smell of someone else smoking would make me nautious or smelling it again on my clothes or someone else’s clothes. Then I thanked God for delivering me from smoking. When I arrived at work I gave my cigarettes to one of the salesmen when he came into work … telling him I had quit & did not need them anymore. It worked for me… cause later in the break room (where back then employees were allowed to smoke) when I smelled the smoke I had to leave the room & eat my lunch outside. I never smoked again nor even had a desire to. I had smoked from 3/4 pack to 1 pack per day for 18 years & the desire was totally gone. It’s been just over 33 years now. A few years later I also quit drinking.
    I did not do this, God did this & I believed He would & He did. Thank you Jesus for now I am 67 & look & feel 15-20 years younger & have very good health. So, ask God to make it obnoxious to you & then thank Him for the ability to trust Him & you can quit.

  16. 15 years ago, the Lord Jesus delivered me from my smoking addiction. Before I was delivered, I tried everything. I tried the patch, hypnosis, Nicorette gum, and group therapy. One night driving home, the Holy Spirit spoke to my spirit, and showed me that I was on the road to hell. Shortly afterwards, I was listening to the Copeland’s on Christian television. The message was about deliverance. I prayed and told the Lord, that I was addicted to cigarettes and I needed his help. If the Lord wanted me to quit, I needed a miracle. The Lord answered that prayer by changing my physiology. When I tried to smoke, I had a difficult time breathing. I haven’t smoked since that time. The Lord was gracious and merciful. I praise and thank Him for answered prayer.

  17. In the past i was following the book called seven weeks to sobriety and it has a stop smoking formulae. i think addictive chemistry can be subdued through mega multi vitamin therapy.

  18. This is a battle I am going through right now.I am in complete fear of going to hell.My heart is pounding so bad I am in panic mode.I know I have little time.my heart hurts.

    1. God tells us “the battle is His!” Do not fear, just keep looking to Jesus and tell satan and his little minions to take it up with your boss, JESUS! Praying for you to have all the peace that passes ALL understanding!

  19. If anyone has heard the testimony of Pastor Hsi from China, he had a horrible opium addiction, and when he heard the gospel he vowed to not touch opium again. His words when he was going through the intense withdrawals of being a serious opium addict was this (paraphrased off the top of my head): “Even if these withdrawals kill me, I will not touch the stuff ever again.” Anyone looking for encouragement and victory should google Pastor Hsi, he was used mightily of the Lord Jesus Christ in China. And he was delivered from a severe opium addiction. Jesus sometimes takes desires instantly away (I’ve heard those testimonies too) but most of the time you have to be willing to have the attitude that you would rather die than to sin against the Lord. Jesus Christ loves us all so much and He will give you victory remember “Submit to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” the devil has to flee from you, the Spirit of Y’hovah lives inside all believers. Amen!

  20. My first time quitting was instant at salvation but I started back months later not realizing why. And For years I heard Gods voice EVERYWHERE saying quit! Because I’ve never wanted anything but his truth even if It hurt! And God is so merciful that I believe he will not stop telling us to quit until we do! Because he does love us so much! I imagine the guilt, shame, uncertainty, the constant struggle and condemnation, alone is enough to make us ineffective in our Christian life, and is not Gods plan for us. Surely the sickness alone that it cause even without cancer! All of this suffering was so much worse than any withdrawal. So I surrendered …I gave my WHOLE heart again. Pointblank to God…believivg! HE had the power, NOT me to quit. So each time I would crave I said, I choose Not to! NO! To sin lord Empower my choice with your Grace! And he did! It was miraculous everytime! I mourned the habit as a friend, and then suddenly I realized who the real friend was! And I was delivered from that too. So sad I an look back now and actually see where I was hindered to do everything he called me to by my stubborn selfish choice for sin for so long. Sin will always hinder our walk. And ultimately our purpose. To love him with our whole heart. My Prayers are for his power to do it all in our choice for him alone. God bless each one of us. Lean on the Rock!!!!

  21. I am so glad i found this thread. I am struggling so hard with cigarettes. I needed to hear all this. It confirms what I feel in my spirit.

  22. I understand how many feel, I smoked for many years and I tried and I tried to quit. And many said you have to want to and my thoughts on that were I do. But, the addiction was terrible. And one day I heard Kat Kerr say take it to the courts in heaven our Lord Jesus will hear your case. Just as lawyers try your case on earth, our Lord will hear us. And he did, I prayed to please take this addiction from me, that I have been so troubled with it and needed my Lord to help me. I knew I had to. Nothing else was working, I have faith in him and he did it, I have smoke free since the day I took it to him, yes my Lord took the addiction from me all of it that same day. It’s been over a year and smoke free. Please ask the Lord in the courts of heaven, he will do it. I didn’t do it, he did it for me Amen. I will pray for you as well, for our Lord Jesus to hear your prayer.

  23. I am so pleased that I researched my way to this site. I am afraid the end is very near, and fearing this, I did much research. I always knew my body was God’s temple, yet I have smoked off and on since I was 13, now 35. I lay down my cigarettes for one final time, TODAY; I make changes I never imagined I would have to make until recently, TODAY; and I fear God more than I ever have TODAY. Lord, please be with me. I want nothing more than to live my life the way you have always intended, and this begins TODAY! God bless each and every one of us. Amen! One question though, what can I do about tattoos that will forever defile my body? I also had children out of wedlock. I cry in fear thinking about the decisions I made when I was only 18. I fear I will forever be unclean 🙁

    1. 1 John 1:9-10
      9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
      NKJV

    2. Katrina, how are you today? 19th Nov 2015. Did you give up smoking on 24th May 2014? Your comments touched me. I love God so much, so much more real in the last few months than ever before in my life. But I still smoke… I want to stop…. I was just wondering if you did?

      1. I couldn’t seem to set my mind right when it came to quitting. Tried everything. Reasoned with God. Chantix worked, but made me so sick. I finally tried this stuff called tabex. It’s not sold in the U.S. So, I ordered it online from tabex.net the only reason I am telling you where I ordered it was because I was a little Leary of taking a pill from some other country. These were legit. It is herbal. Called cytisine. It worked. Two and a half weeks clean. No serious withdrawals. No cravings during it. For me, it was always my own mind that did me in. This took the power away from the nicotine. I thank god for guiding me to do this!

    3. Amen, God have taken away the desire from me to smoke or hurt the temple of the holy spirit ( my body ) And I just praise him and I`am so happy and thankful and experienced his love

  24. Although it’s advisable to give up the addiction to smoking, the act in and of itself will not stop someone from entering the Kingdom of God. Our Father in Heaven actually DOES have His priorities in order. Those who willfully practice Satan worship is not akin to a God lover who is addicted to nicotine. Let’s be rational.

    1. Please read your Bible dear brother Tim. You can no more predict who will make it than I can. Warn people the GATE IS NARROW and the Bride MUST BE HOLY AND WITHOUT BLEMISH. (Eph 5:27)

      1 Cor 3:17
      17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
      NKJV

      1. Yes John these scriptures are true. I love God with all my heart, but I still smoke. (I gave up for 13 years and had one cigarette, about 2 years ago). Dam it. Why did I start again??

        I read your initial conversation with (who?) you said the best way you knew to give up smoking was FEAR.

        I have been listening to and reading a lot of stuff lately about THE BLOOD OF JESUS and about THE CHANGING OF OUR DNA and things like this. It’s interesting and so God.

        Also last week I had LIVE BLOOD ANALYSIS. That was fascinating! But a few of my blood cells had exploded, because of the poisons I was sucking in by smoking. Scary!!!

        So I’m going to do a bit more reading on the BLOOD of JESUS and try and put the FEAR OF GOD into me and STOP SMOKING.
        AMEN.

  25. Today I have been compelled to fast and pray. I know that our time is short and that I have backslided. Cigarettes are my vice, and I know I must pray deeply inside to close the door of satan and open the one of eternal salvation of Jesus. God has beaten our enemy and I will not let him fool me into Hell. Thank you for all the testimonials, and I will pray for this message to reach all those that need it. No one here is alone and you all are in my prayers. Praise be to God.

  26. Johnny, I too have been battling the smoke issue,at one time I became so angry at the addiction every time I went into the smoke shop,I imagined the face of Satan saying
    yes, nice to see you I mean even if I was broke I had a credit line,I live on less than a
    $1000.00 a month. I became so enraged that I was spending God’s money on death and destruction and not tithing as I should that I swore to quit. Well I did for awhile I remember the first time I was able to go to Church and give God’s money back to where it belongs. As I went outside I laughed and said gotcha Satan, I guess I was puffed up because of my past I hate Satan and all he does long story short I went back to smoking during a time of heavy attack from the enemy. I am still making my tithe and serving in a couple of Ministries. You see I could see Jesus coming back me with a cigarette hole burned in my White Robe or smoking one when He arrives,I don’t think so there is no way I am going to be in the Smoke shop when Jesus appears.or have one in my mouth.So if those of you who are still struggling with it you might want to look at it as I did it will give you some food for thought. Please Pray for me for I am in a Battle beyond mention with the Adversary The Devil of old Satan it started in 1984 Praise God Almighty for He alone is Worthy of all Glory and Dominion unto Eternity
    + + +

  27. Praise be to God two weeks tomorrow without a cigarette. I took the advice of using the patch and its worked so far. I know cost is expensive but the store brand is about half of the nicoderm brand and it had worked great for me. Timothy I will pray for you, as this is the biggest addiction I have personally dealt with. God has blessed me so much and I have made the promise to quit. How can I not honor a commitment to God? Through him all things are possible. Certainly overcoming fleshly desires. I known there will be temptation then rest of my life, but that is only a blink of the eye in terms of eternity. Much love and prayers for all those struggling. Keep me updated. Praise Bless y’all.

  28. Shannon, Thank you so much for your encouragement,prayers and Moral support. I am at a place in my in my relationship with Jesus is so wonderful,I am continually most of the time all I can do is just utter out Thanksgiving,Praise and Glory to Jesus Christ,the Rock of my Salvation,it is He I seek after continually in word,and Deed I pray seek only to further magnify His Glory. Certainly not of myself, I know who I am without him,just another Arrogant,Self seeking and irresponsible,selfish wrenched man, and I was just getting warmed up,that being said I know who I am In Jesus Christ,for I came to him in the 5th grade,I always had this knowing I can recall some of my thoughts and wonders of Him as far back when I was 6 years, that was 1963 the year Our Most Righteous President John Kennedy was murdered,I remembered walking into the house and my mom just crying her heart out,strange how things can stay with you for eternity. I love all the Brothers and Sisters in the Body as well as those who are drinking the ” Kool-Aide ” being told it is the Blood of Christ,enough said, I really would love to meet some new Brothers and Sisters around the Country, I am living in So.Ca. I am going to post my Email if anyone would like to send one,you can send it to tnstop@live.com I look 4ward to hearing from some new friends,going to bed I get to go to the House of the Lord tomorrow,Oh yes I attend a Church Named the Rock or Mission Statement is 3 words long… Building Solid Lives who doesn’t desire a Solid Life built on the Rock that is Jesus Christ,last item we began live streaming world wide last Sunday, This Sunday Launches the 3 day Rock Conference we are in Anaheim Ca. simply go to http://www.gototherock.com for the stream feed even if you miss it live it is always Archived for those who desire to. Sorry gang for tolerating me as I digressed, it means means much to me,Bless you Shannon for your support and edification it comes @ a much need time. May the Lord keep you in all your ways. + + + 🙂

  29. I am not a smoker – never even tried a cigarette because I thought I would like it. Saw my father smoke all of his life until the last 5 years of his life when he had quit cold turkey. God is merciful and knows our hearts. I thought it was strange and out of nowhere to hear the interview you had (John the Baptist) with Kat Kerr, when she mentioned smoking – I thought I distinctly heard her say that God knows their struggles and he is loving and helping his children. I doubt she read these threads, but believe the Holy Spirit had her say something to you, “John” – sorry, but I do not know your real name, so that others may know that he knows our every thorn in the flesh. Rush to the store and buy a patch? Is it not better to quit by the power of the Holy Spirit? What if a person does not have the money for a patch? What about negative reactions to the medication? What ab0ut those who are overeaters and do not have to deal with the stigma of cigarette smoking? No one is saying that smoking is good, but I heard the person you interviewed, Kat Kerr, say that God says we have it wrong, and he knows those things which entangle us and that we desire to be freed from. God is merciful, and he has the sense to know that if you love him, and you are struggling with a vice such as smoking and do not want that vice in your life, that he died for that bondage too. God is not the author of confusion or fear – if he were here with you as in the days of his disciples, he would touch you, free you, and then say go and sin no more. Your job is to stay in his presence, seek his face, do not turn from him, and ask him for forgiveness, because he faithful and just to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. Let the power of the Holy Spirit work in your life – not fear. Perfect love casts out fear. Amen.

  30. The Lord,has been leading me in a direction that is just wonderful. He is to be Highly
    Exalted above ALL things. Glory, Power and Dominion are His and His Alone. He is worthy of everything that we have to give Him do do with us,to serve Him and To be Glorified through us his simple honest ones who now that they are worthy of nothing save for Hell Fire and Damnation. But for the Joy set before Him he endured the Cross
    despising the shame, while even his own strutted around in their self satisfaction that they had finally gotten rid of this man who had the nerve to call himself the Son of
    God as they mocked him,spat upon him,finally driving a spear through his side He spoke loudly enough so that his tormenters could hear Him cry Father forgive them for they know not what they do, with his last fleeting breath He shouted It is FINISHED. Prasie God and kiss the Son lest He be angry with you. I will give all, I will, Live all and yes Die for Him. I shall serve him all the days of my Life + + +

  31. Good . As for the smoking , the drinking and the clubbing this is the way to defeat it. You just need to say out loud every time you buy a cigarette pack or light up a cigarette or buy a drink or about to drink or to go clubbing :
    Thanks be to God who has given me the victory over smoking , over drinking and over clubbing through my Lord Jesus (1Corinthians 15:57). Jesus I thank you for setting me free of drinking, smoking and clubbing I invite you Jesus to come with me to buy cigarettes, I invite you Jesus to come buy alcohol with me, I invite you Jesus to come clubbing with me; for David said, if I make my bed in Hell behold you are there, there is not a place on earth that I can go from your spirit , or I can flee from your presence (psalm 139:7-8). So you are with me when I smoke, when I drink and when I go clubbing, though I am grieving your spirit by giving place to the devil in my life (Ephesians 4:27-30 : 1Peter 4:1-7). Jesus I thank you for this cigarette, for this drink and for this night club , come and smoke with me, come and drink with me and come and club with me in Jesus name,  Amen!

    Confess this every morning every night and every time you buy cigarettes, drinks, before going to night club or pubs

  32. Please, brothers and sisters, do not use money as an excuse not to use nicotine patches! Store brands, which work just as well as name brands, cost about $2/day or less. That’s significantly less than one pack of cigarettes. If you smoke more than half a pack a day, as most of us do/did, you’ll save money right away.
    I disagree with the idea that quitting cold turkey using only faith and prayer is the only Christian way. God has blessed us with resources, including patches, just as He has blessed us with medicines to heal us from other diseases. God has different paths for each of us. Ask Him to guide you, and if He givis you peace about using patches or gum or whatever, then don’t be afraid to do it.
    This is not to say that you can’t quit using just faith. God delivered me from nicotine once when I hadn’t even intended to try at that particular time. And I stayed nicotine-free for 4 1/2 years. But under severe stress I forgot to trust Him and let the nicotine demon back in. Believe me, once you quit, no matter how you do it, you have to keep your guard up against temptation for the rest of your life. Now I’m trying again. I have asked God to deliver me again, but I guess because I threw away His gift of deliverance before, this time He’s going to make me work for it. Still, I know He will help me, so I CAN do it. No matter what method you use, constant prayer and trust are crucial!

  33. Hi

    The Holy Ghost keep on remind me to stop smoking and use 1 Cor 3:16,17.

    Yesterday i decide to quit, i got 2 packs 20left.

    Yesterday i research all about smoking, symptoms, lookup videos, about lung cancer, the posion in it, people on their deathbed, looking at testimonies about hell.

    FEAR IS THE ANSWER!!

    “But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
    (Luke 12:5)

    The Lord give me 1 Cor 10:13 to use when the craving start.

    If you are serious to quit for Jesus. Search youtube, tubidy for Hell Is Real, lung cancer!

    Im started 1980 so i’m a smoker for 34 years now, after looking al that vids, i weeping to God and thank Him for my health, i should be dead already.

    Oh My Word!!

    This is only 1 vid, search and look at all you can, satan don’t want you to know the truth! Im 53 born 1960. look to videos until the FEAR OF GOD TOUCH YOUR SOUL!

    Jesus Loves Us So So Much!

    But the choice is ours! To take the step of *FAITH*!!

  34. I am battling quitting smoking, as my process goes on quitting I’ve noticed that I’ve been having very lustful dreams that I wake up ,and go where did that come from …they really need prayer on this because I want to be prepared and be a vessel of God’s honor and do His will and be obedient ,I don’t know what my problem is but this seems to be a very strong force and I could use all the prayers I can get …god bless all of you and thank you so much for those who pray with me and if anyone can email me on this to help me with encouragement and prayers would be very much appreciated .

  35. its amazing when you seek you find I just stumbled across this page randomly looking for an answer to how God feels about you smoking and its helped me to read a lot of the peoples post on here I am 53 years old female I drank from the time I was 13 up to 9 years ago the Lord delivered me overnight I have been backslidden a couple of times me and my husband have but I’ve been sober 9 years the Lord deliver me of alcohol overnight with no withdrawals but the cigarettes I still struggle with my husband gave up cigarettes 10 months ago between chewing tobacco and praying the Lord delivered him of both and me I’m still smoking I pray every night I pray every morning I read my Bible everyday and to be honest with you I didn’t know smoking was a SiN and then the Lord brought to my attention our body is not our own it is a temple of Gods,there is no doubt in my mind we are living in the last days and that Jesus can come back anytime and I don’t want to be stuck in Sin I just praise God and thank Jesus that he died on the cross so that we can be forgiven of our sins and only by his grace the worlds not going to last much longer I know that we do not fight against the flesh in ephs6:12 for we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities against powers against the rulers of darkness,and I think when I go to buy cigarettes and I’m smoking a cigarette,is this what I want to be doing when Jesus comes back no its not, me and my husband talk about it would have been a lot easier to be walking with Jesus like the disciples did so we could have been healed of this disease but then we wouldn’t have had to go through this back then because cigarettes didn’t exist ,I can’t do the patch I have high blood pressure I almost had a stroke trying to get off from cigarettes and I’ll tell you what I was about ready to go through a stroke just to quit the stupid things but the chest pains were too intense so I had to take the patch off I’m not going to chew so I’m just going to keep trusting my Lord to deliver me repenting and trusting my lord thru jesus he will deliver me,I thank God I found this page it’s opened up my eyes to a lot of things ,and I really thank the Lord that he keeps convicting me because if he didn’t then I know I would be lost in the world of sin, then it took me a long time to get out of that world and I don’t want to go back to it I don’t claim to know a lot of things in life just from my experiences and what I read the Bible but I asked for prayer and I’ll be praying for people on here that need it thanks for letting me vent! God bless

  36. Hi, recently I accepted Jesus as my savior and wow have things changed. One week later I decided to fast and that night I threw out a carton of cigarettes, probably 30 bottles of alcohol, and a lot of other things I didn’t need. I was pretty confused afterwards and didn’t think smoking or drinking were really problems in my life. I took smoking back up and after a couple weeks I asked God about the smoking and he assured me that I needed to quit smoking and drinking if I wanted peace. I quit smoking 2 days later. Today is 40 days in and it’s a struggle, but I’m still going. I also thought maybe I could still drink. I tried one night, which turned into one of those drunken catastrophes where you don’t want to show your face to anyone again. Needless to say what a lifestyle change this is after 27 years of smoking and drinking. I’m pretty lost, but I know things will eventually be wonderful. Prayers to all of you, stay strong, we can all beat this one withdraw symptom at a time with the help of Jesus.

  37. Correction, I didn’t just accept Jesus as my Savior before he made me quit smoking, I actually prayed that he would take over my life, because I had realized that my ways were not working. That makes it extra amazing in my book. Thanks be to God!!!

  38. I was born again in 1978, the Lord delivered me from smoking and drinking when I was reading His Word and it just hit me ( the Holy Spirit quickened my spirit) that I didn’t have to smoke or drink anymore because I was free! Well it was great for 2 years. Then my husband (not born-again) wanted me to go out for New Years and I did, wanting to be submissive to him, and after a few drinks I decided to have a cigarette, thinking I would just do it tonight and quit again tomorrow. Well although I tried and quit for days at a time I never did quit again. Recently I have asked the Lord for my first love for Him to be rekindled, some of the things he spoke to me are the very verses I’ve seen on this site. I never thought I would jeopardize my salvation from smoking but now I am quite sure I would (if you think its a sin then for you it is). I will not let smoking steal my assurance of everlasting life with my savior so I just smoked my last cigarette and and I will resist the devil and he will flee from me in Jesus’ name ! He will not let me be tempted more than I can withstand and with the temptation will give me a way of escape. I don’t know what that way is but I will trust the Lord to make it clear to me. I always say its harder when someone (my husband) in your house also smokes, but nothing is impossible with God and I am no longer a smoker. I will be praying for all of you that have written on this site. God bless you all ! Oh I forgot to mention when I was praying for my first love to be restored the Lord said to me this is not the only thing I have against you, then he told me smoking was a sin against the Holy Temple of God (my body) and it grieves the Holy Spirit which we are sealed with until that day of his return! Praise God in Jesus’ name Amen…………

    1. Dear Friend..I pray that you you seek first the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.. Hand your life over to Him first..He will guide you and help you to break all bondages necessary in His time.. Peace be with you..In Jesus name..fellow Christian

  39. I would also like to add that before I came to this site I was led to watch every video about heaven and hell encounters of people who had near death experiences. There are alot on youtube and sid roth. I think this helped instill the fear of God in me to not want to go to hell for known disobedience to the Lord ( if you think its sin to you it is). Also I have had a couple of times when I have had very bad cravings since I stopped smoking and I used the nicotine gum that I was given at the free health clinic in Minneapolis Minnesota. I think all major cities have these clinics for people who cant afford the gum. I am still smoke free and praying for all of you, God bless you !

    1. I believed in my heart there was NO WAY God would leave me behind from the Rapture. I was doing ministry work, helping people, conducting radio shows, and everything I could to serve Him. I believed with all my heart that God would give me a break on the smoking problem. I just didn’t see it as being a big deal. But it kept bothering me and I was still worried that I might be wrong. So one morning I sat alone in tears in my office with a 380,000 word Thesaurus and said “Father, please settle this for me. Will I be part of the Bride of Jesus Christ if I keep smoking”. I let the thesaurus fall open on my desk. Through my tears I looked at the words on the page. It said “Backslidden”.

      In HORROR I burst into more tears and balling like a baby I drove to Walgreens and got the biggest box of the “Clear” nicoderm patches they had. I was SO AFRAID of being Left Behind because I knew those choices had eternal ramifications and the horror that I would subject myself too would be beyond my ability to survive. THAT FEAR of GOD; KNOWING that I had absolutely NO CHOICE, that this was DO – OR – DIE, changed me that day. There was no way I was going to miss the opportunity of all eternity over STUPID CIGARETTES.

      PRAISE JESUS FOR THE FEAR OF GOD

      Thank you LORD HALLELUJAH!

  40. Dear Bothers and Sisters in Christ,
    I am so afraid. Every time I light up I hear the devil saying your a piece of *****. I have this lie in my heart, I agree when I hear this condemnation. A part of smoking is like a slow suicide. I don’t have the guts to off myself so I numb myself in smoking and drinking. Chain smoking hurts my body so I use alcohol to dull my senses so I can smoke. I was quit for a year but turned back to it. I believe I failed because I didn’t quit for God or myself I quit for my husband. My insides quake, my heart weeps, my mind betrays me and whispers just ESCAPE. I am ashamed and broken…Every time I try to quit I find myself going back to it within hours or a day. I NEED to break this cycle. I don’t wish to heap my sins on the cross thinking its OK I’m forgiven. I am afraid of losing my salvation. I don’t know if that’s how is works but I do know I am willfully choosing to not do the Lords will. I know God want me to quit. His Spirit is always petitioning and convicting me to overcome. Please pray for me to overcome this duality. To conquer my flesh, to honor God with my body. I know I am not my own……The longer I deny God’s will the deeper Satan sends me into a spiral of self-hatred. OH GOD PLEASE HELP ME!!

    1. I feel your words to my core. i know what its like to truly want to quit and not be able to. I know your post was a while ago, but i just quit today, maybe if you have not done it yet we can quit together.

  41. Greetings everyone. I’m Shawn,a Christian. scribeworksmusic on YouTube. After having a fire in our home, and being displaced for close to a year, all of our belongings packed away, and being moved into the heart of the gay community, directly across the street from the biggest gay pride location outside of California, and next door to a female Masonic chapter, as well as surrounded by the largest Catholic Churches in the state ( on of which throws the biggest parties of satanic music industry groups) I feel that I may have been spiritually attacked, and somewhat spiritually damaged.
    I was placed in a dumpster by my mother, and have been on my own since age 11. I was raised in a violent home by the people who found me and they were involved in black magic, as well as the mans brother was a mason. I shared the above not for sympathy, but to show some of what has led me to always know Jesus was real, and that I had a Father in Heaven who did love me in spite of what was occurring to me.
    I’ve been struggling with some understanding of a few scriptures and concepts our Father has provided to us through the Bible.
    I am not surrounded by True/Strong Brothers and Sisters in Y’shua/Yeshua/Jesus/THE Christ. Today I feel as if I was led here. True Saints, Please keep me and my family in your prayers. It would be nice to have someone to speak to who knows the Word, and is willing to be a friend.
    In closing, though I know some things, there is more I don’t know. I have had dreams, as well as visions. Under ten times, and also not for a while. It would be nice to speak to someone concerning them. Our internet is not set up yet, i am submitting this from an iPhone.
    Thank you.

  42. Shawn, I understand what it is to feel as if there is a BIG Hole in one’s Soul and the Dark and Damnable cold wind is blowing all the way through ya, to which I say God be Merciful to me a Sinner, I am always here for ya, at the above E-mail address, on the other hand I must say these days there is a GGGGGGGGreat Darkness covering this Earth, I can not and will not speak for others I only say this your story is fairly remarkable, no doubt it has all of the Darkest depravity of men and situations, just the type of story line that the undiscerning Christian might take and “Run with” the we got to rescue this poor Soul, If indeed your story rings true all the way from being placed in a dumpster by your mother, to your current situation. Being I am not aware of your location, this I can say we live by facts we do not allow our circumstances, nor our “feelings” cloud This Great Fact if you have Received and Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ you shall be saved. God is full of Mercy and Grace, these days we are told to be as wise as serpents and harmless as lambs, If nothing else find a Bible Believing Preaching, Teaching Church and begin to go there, anytime you are away from all the filth that you say you are surrounded by, and surrounded by Righteous Men and Women of God you are far better of than sitting in your home being as it were Hypnotized by Yeah even this Electronic Internet that we use and rely on so much to get the word of God out, that being said it will never take the place of meeting together with like minded Saints, for we are his Saints who dwell upon this Earth he is Our High Priest forever He stands to make intersession on our behalf, the current place I live and have lived for a year + there are 3 others who live here all of them have been so hostile and hateful and done all they can to cause me to leave, as I have before I told the Owner who lives in the same house I am not moving anywhere the Spiritual War that has been going on around here is enough at times, I am truly surprised that the trees don’t at times just spontaneously combust, bottom line the other nite maybe a week ago I began to bring each one of these individuals before the Lord and Pray for them, I asked the Lord to give them Peace, calmness, and a settled Spirit, well long story short after less than a week Peace is Prevailing calmness and a Spirit of Cooperation, not one of Agitation is Prevailing, Nothing can stand against the Word of God nor those of His who walk in His way. I pray you got something out of all of this because at times as it is now it is as if I am on auto-pilot, when my fingers hit the keyboard, find some believers and get to know them, it is a time to leave the past where it lays, Stretch out, Reach out, and Answer the upward call to Glory in Christ Jesus, Who’s Name is Above all Names. True and Faithful is He, Amen and Amen + + +

  43. M really fortunate to read the message from Heavenly Father posted in the first part of the comments. My life is plaque with bad luck since a kid n till now(25 yrs old) and worst of all I m not being able to stop this sexual desires. I prayed to Heavenly Father in Jesus Name to help me get married but situation never seems right. Girlfriends always turnout to be fake in the end.
    Someone please give me a strong advice please. M too weak in terms of praying.

  44. Hello, I have been a smoker on and off since I was 15. I gave myself back to the lord a year ago. But I’m still struggling with smoking. Now I went from a half or a pack a day down to 1 or 2 a day maybe some days a couple more. I want to quit with every fiber of my being. Can you all please pray for me. I don’t want to do it any longer. Thank you so much

  45. I have just been diagnosed with lung cancer. I have tried to give this smoking up to the Lord but I have been unsuccessful. I am so sad. I feel the Lord has forsaken me for many reasons. I feel like it does not matter if I live or die.

    1. This may be your final chance to fully repent to God and surrender to Him 100%. If you blame Him you are making a grave grave mistake. Praise His name for His holy mercy.

      Ps 119:67
      67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
      But now I keep Your word.
      NKJV

  46. Not sure if anyone will see this but I lived in unrepentant sin for years I have battled with OCD for years and I was trying to give up smoking (10) years my Dad got into the new age one night I was listening to 332hz music and felt really weird I asked him to pray for me he did but his face changed (almost like the Devil himself) I felt something break from me leave through my mouth (almost felt like a spirit) I am mortified that was the Holy Spirit everytime now I read the bible I see about wheat and tares…… LIKE I was destined to be a tare maybe… My dad wont go to anything not Charismatic in nature…. I’M MORTIFIED have been for weeks I have prayed asked for forgiveness on medicine now to control things….. Omg what have I done does anyone think there is hope for me…..I should have read my Bible but I grew up in an abusive home….. Is there hope for me? I told alot of people that Jesus loved them but never told them to give up sin once they had been saved my dad sayed that I was saved at 3 in a Charismatic word church but I don’t remember…….I don’t wanna smoke it’s like something that wants me to smoke….. I love the God head….. Jesus, God & The Holy Spirit….. I could go on but I’ll stop here

    1. First thing brother is you need to FLUSH out all the “stuff” that has gotten into your head and forget it all. Toss it all in the trash. Next you need to spend some time on your knees seeking God and praying fervently to HIM as your Father. Spend time reading your Bible. SEEK GOD one on one and take it seriously. The scripture is very clear … If we confess of our sins our Father is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and cleans us of all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). This does not mean it’s okay to sin because IT IS NOT!! You need to stop sinning brother and start praying and asking God to forgive you. Make it REAL. No song and dance stuff. This is for keeps. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8).

  47. Glad I came across this site. Today I smoked my last cigarette. I know I need to quit and with Gods Word I know I can do it. Would love some extra prayers because I know these first few days are going to be the worst. I chose to quit on Christmas because I think it is symbolic in nature: Jesus was born this day, unto us, to free us from sin and give us eternal life. So today, I am giving my sin to Jesus and though Him I am made new!

  48. I’m so battling with stopping smoking also. Appreicate these posts so much. I feel so all alone. I’m living with my adult kids who had thrown cigerettes out as soon as they got saved. I see the Light in them; I feel lost; down and depressed. When I don’t smoke it feels like I have a monster inside of me…I go to church; do not feel the Lord in me..just sad…I have chantex now. Read about how it can cause depression and freaked out because i’m already battling such depressed/suicidal feelings. I don’t do suicide because I believe that will send you to hell..really needed to read these posts…I reposted the big one from The Lord on FB; maybe it will help someone else hiding in there like me…everyone knows I smoke..Going to try private prayer again..bible reading..this is horrible..thank you so much…Debbie

  49. Hi to all..
    I responded about a week ago after reading these great posts. I’m in the same boat. I wanted to tell everyone that I received a lot of hands on me in Jesus Name prayers about smoking lately; and I started taking the Chantex. Today, I’ve had two smokes early this morning..I didn’t buy anymore when I went to the store and that is monumental for me! Usually I have to keep a pack hid here..for just in case! Anyways, the Chantez really, really, makes it a lot easier to stop smoking..I’ve smoked since the age of 11; and now 60..at least a pack a day..maybe more..Anyways..I beleive this is hard core addiction..and we feel hard core withdrawels..I’m going through it..Praise the Lord an bless you all..thank you for your support on here…

  50. Thanks for your comment. I smoked for 24 years. I quit 8weeks (with tabex) and was doing really good. Anyways, today I wanted one… I thought about it a lot! And, I saw your post! Thank you. I knew if I would have a smoke, that twenty years from now… At age sixty, I probably would still be battling! So… Thank you. Ps…as for physical cravings…those pass quickly! This one was all in my head… And I kinda entertained a little too long! God bless you! By quitting smoking… You are telling the enemy that you stand on scripture and are a slave to nothing! Most days I don’t even think about smoking. Today, with my husband smoking around me, just got in my head!

  51. Hi…I smoked for over twenty years. Tried chantix. It didn’t work for me. Made me super sick! Then, I took tabex. See my post above. I have been free for eight and a half weeks now! I still have my days, but it’s all in my thinking. The physical cravings are gone. I still confront the psychological ones here and there. Just want to encourage those who haven’t quit yet, and they feel defeated before they even begin! They let past failure scare them. Those failures were just practice runs! It’s taken a lot of us a lot of practice to quit! Second… God is loving to his children. If you have accepted Jesus as lord and savior… Then you are forgiven. He knows your heart, your struggles, he is not beating you up over this. The enemy does that. And remember… Sin is sin. Whether it’s smoking, lying, adultery, idolatry, greed, whatever. So, even if you are saved… You will still battle sin. It’s not always easy. And while one person may struggle against smoking, another might struggle against something different. He warns us. But, he is there for us, during our struggles. Be careful.. The enemy wants you to focus on your sin(smoking)… But don’t give in to the enemy… Focus on god, because he is king, and you are his!

  52. I had a dream once…I had tried to quit smoking and was doing real well. I was using the nicotine gum and I was almost done with that. Until I became stressed and when I got upset I wanted a cigarette. My brother moved in and was smoking and I bought a pack of cigarettes and hid them in my jewelry box. Here is the dream…That night I dreamed that a pack of cigarettes were in my jewelry box and I watched myself and was myself as I came out of my bedroom SUDDENLY as I opened the door everything stopped and it was too late. I knew immediately time was up. I didn’t see the Lord but my feeling was that I had been caught like when your a child right in the middle of an act. There was no time to say anything …time was up and I woke up horrified.

    I also believe that our sword “the Word” is not as effective. We don’t use it with power and effectiveness while puffing on a cigarette. I was shown in a dream that men in black suits came in the house and were fighting me with a sword. I could hold them off for a little while but they were injuring me until finally I fell on my bed and the man in the black suit held the sword up high as he was straddling me and slowly put the sword in my heart and while it penetrated me I said “Forgive me Lord, I repent of my sins”. When I woke up I thought how pathetic! I was very sad but from above looking at down at myself it appeared to be lip service. I know that sounds sad but we can sin unto death!
    I hope this helps someone!

  53. Message on Tribulation-Now regarding hell and the reality of it… Jacob says: October 28, 2012 at 2:17 am
    This Is a message from the LORD — it’s long, but let it bless you and help you all with addictions. (John Baptist – I wrote in Holy Spirit-trained/led thoughts, hoping you will be teachable to receive them) They are in red in a hand-out that I made of this, but do not come in RED/YELLOW highlight/blue HERE, sorry…but have enclosed my words/verses in parentheses) I have background in everything you have had –am now 72 yrs., feel need to retire from missionary work.)

    I love you MY children. I love you and as surely as I live, as surely as I the sovereign GOD will always live, the enemy will hate you. MY children do you think he likes you, he does not like you how can he even love you. He cannot tolerate you. If it were not for MY hand of protection over you the enemy would have killed you and had you in the pits where you will understand the hate he has for ME and you. Be not deceived. You think the pleasure you have on the earth is nothing more than pleasure? No, it is sin. The pleasure of flesh is against the spirit. MY children please read this slowly, understand it fully. He hates you, (the lord sounds sad) yes I am heartbroken by MY children who have perished. MY heart aches for each of them, each of them MY Spirit. Why do you choose the flesh over ME MY children? I can give you more but you choose him, the enemy I defeated long ago. His defeat was written long ago, before you were born. He hates you and he will do anything. Whatever it takes to have your soul in hell. He will do it. Through your family, through your friends. Your career. Your music. The things you watch. Everything that he can find that will get to you he will use, but he cannot use it unless you give him power. MY children, satan has no power. Do not entertain his evil ways he wants your soul in hell. In hell, do you know what is in hell, my children? Do you?
    Snakes which make love to you. Smokers, homosexuals, drunkards, their punishment is severe. Even MY children who called themselves MY own, those who chose money over ME, those who were harsh in words, people who love wild parties, there are so many in hell MY children, so many being tortured. Yet some of you seem to think you can handle hell, that hell is a place of fun. You joke about hell being a party, a fun party where you drink and smoke and take part in your pleasure-filled sins. Yes it is so, MY children you will party, you will drink, you will smoke you will fornicate for eternity MY children. It will indeed be a hot party, but believe ME you will find no pleasure in any of that. Only demons will find pleasure in hell’s possession of your soul. Drink: you will drink fire, you will drink acid you will drink burning liquid you will drink the most horrid, painful things only satan’s demons find pleasure in. You will smoke things you never thought to smoke, and it will never end my children. You will be pierced with spears all over your bodies. All over your bodies you will be speared, stabbed, bitten, your flesh will be torn. You will cry for death but death will never come. You are made in MY Image, I am an ETERNAL BEING, and you cannot die. Yes, fornicators will be pierced in the genitals. In the most painful of areas. Demons with thorns all over their body will make love to you. Worms will suck on your tongues. Ugly, horrific things will happen to you. That is the party you will be in forever. The party, the hot party in hell never ends my children. It never ends. There are no 6 to 6’s in hell. Only eternity, forever, and ever the torment will go on. Is a minute’s pleasure worth eternal torment, MY children; really, is it worth it, MY children? How do you choose that over what I offer you? I offer you peace joy, eternal rest. I offer you Life. I offer you the beauties of heaven. The finest GOD can give you. Do you not want to smile for eternity, do you not? What MY children is it not enough? Is to live to sin? How is it that you encourage this term of yours “live a little”? What is to live a little? Live on the earth sinfully, die and land up in hell? Is that to live a little? MY children listen to Me, you do not live a little. You will never live a little. You will live forever. When your soul departs from your body that is the beginning of eternity. Where will you spend it? In MY Kingdom, in MY presence, Or in hell? My children stop encouraging each other to sin, it is not right, it is unholy, it is evil, it is detestable.
    My children I told you I am going to tell you many things in these words, (Holy Spirit) I tell you the truth and nothing else. Nothing but truth comes out of MY mouth; I have no reason to deceive those I love. No reason to lie. I am not man. I cannot lie. I cannot, it is not in MY being, and MY SPIRIT knows not to lie. I do not lie. My children, suicide, why do you commit suicide? Do not do it, I know MY children it’s hard, some of you, your circumstances seem unbearable but just trust and believe that I God will work everything out in your favor. I have forgiven every sin. Even suicide, I have MY blood to cover suicide but I will explain to you why MY children, why suicide’s land up in hell. Suicides land up in hell, MY children because they could not repent. You cannot repent in hell. (Yes, I know, but I have experienced the Holy Spirit groaning in me on a few occasions, one time for a relative of mine, my father-in-law who had been in Freemasonry that I had interceded for over a period of many years (along with his pastor and many other pastors), whom the pastor told me that day he doubted (my “dad”) had made it to Heaven. But in the afternoon after the memorial service, the HOLY GHOST TOOK ME IN THE SPIRIT, GROANED GREATLY/DEEPLY, AND BROUGHT RELEASE to my Father-in-Law’s SOUL THROUGH REPENTANCE, and I KNEW he was in the ABBA YAH’S CARE and was SAVED!) You cannot repent after the departure from your body. By the time you die there is no time for you to ask for forgiveness you have left the earth. (As I just TOLD YOU, that is not the whole story, brother. A true, Spirit-filled, chosen INTERCESSOR has POWER/AUTHORITY to PRAY for a soul, and intervene in prayers and intercession for the forgiveness of a person ahead of time…(I wonder whether it might be true also for the first three days after a person dies when the spirit is still wandering upon the earth…?) Also, Yahshua/Jesus tells us in HIS WORD, that all sins will be forgiven except for the blasphemy of the Holy Ghost” (Matt. 12:31-32), not that we TEMPT the Father and Son’s SACRED WORD!) You have been cut off from the earth my children remember this. Repentance is not for the grave, MY children. Repentance is for now. It is now. (Yes, I agree we SHOULD HATE WHAT IS EVIL, and CLING to what is GOOD, but what are high priests, ministers, intercessors for but to SEEK YAH’S HELP, DELIVERANCE and REDEMPTION for the lost, the dying, AND the hopelessly bound?) Do not waste time. Do not deceive yourselves thinking you will run away from your circumstances to a better place, you will find yourselves worse off than you were while on the earth MY children, but I ask you my children to come to me. Run to ME, I will comfort you in your sickness and in your pain. I am here for you. I will never turn my back on you. I will give you back everything that the devil stole from you. I, GOD will give you back your joy. Your peace and your worth. I AM (the True, Almighty GOD) will mend you and put you back together for my own glory because I love you, and those who belong to me will not be mocked or destroyed by the enemy for I will be your GOD, Your PROTECTOR. (For mature believers, not all so simple, brother Jacob – remember Apostle Paul and other disciples, how they all experienced many hardships, suffering and how they died? Paul made mention of all his afflictions and hardships? I, Linda, and all true followers, have been afflicted many times as the WORD OF the SAVIOR/MESSIAH says, so we can’t leave out the “COST” of following the Living Word, Yahshua/Jesus because there is TRUE COST as well, but Oh, also the honor, the blessings and rewards!!) I am the Great “I AM.” I can only protect you if you belong to Me. Call on MY name my children. Call on the name of YAHSHUA (Hebrew name) /JESUS. I am here.
    My children, listen to ME. I have a complaint against you. Why do you betray each other MY children? Why do you betray and hurt your friends and your family. Why do you lie to each other? Why do you fight? Make peace today, MY children. Talk, forgive one another, stop crucifying each other and mocking and slandering your names. MY children this is not from ME. (It does mention that “your family will be your worst enemy, and “be divided against each other”, i.e. Luke 12:52-53) I command you to love each other as you love yourselves. Do not believe that you will enter MY kingdom if you hold any grudges, MY children. No, no. Stop being hypocrites. Stop it. I do not go to MY Father and bad mouth you (very good), I do not remind MY FATHER of the countless sins you performed. Forgive each other, help each other, respect, and do not break each other’s trust. Encourage each other in the LORD. In ME, encourage each other do not pull each other away from each other. MY church is to help each other. Stop judging each other, judgment is for God alone not for mere people. Judgment is MINE; MY judgment is fair and just. Do not hurt each other.
    MY children I am going to talk about porn again, I need you to understand MY children it is a sin. How dare you put what I made for privacy on display? Porn encourages sex out of marriage. Demons of lust enter into your body then you yield to your flesh and sin against your own body, through masturbation. Why masturbation is wrong you may ask yourself? It is sin MY children, I am not pleased with MY children lusting after each other, I am not pleased with the world telling my children to masturbate because it is natural, sex outside of ME, MY children is dangerous, demons make love to you. Do not do it. Do not watch porn, do not make porn, MY children, this includes your photos. The photos you take the photos you look at. Listen to ME, you are grieving the HOLY SPIRIT, you are. , MY children please, the road to hell is very broad, the road to heaven is very narrow. Few find it. I ask you now, what road are you walking on? Sex is for man and woman in marriage alone. Only in marriage. MY children you ask yourselves why and how you became so sexual, so promiscuous? Sex, MY children, sexual demons are in you, ask ME to restore you and purify you MY children that you are found not guilty before a Holy GOD. Only I, GOD can deliver you from such sin. Yes only I, GOD.
    I am not done MY children; I have words, listen to ME, and listen to ME carefully. I am coming. I am coming very soon. I am coming so soon. Those who do not believe, those who doubt, your blood is on your own head. I have warned you over and over. Do not expect to see tomorrow, do not plan for next week, do not invest for retirement, do not watch and wait for your youth to end, do not stall, do not wait to turn to ME. I will come soon. I am coming now, I am on MY way. I am here. I am ready to leave with MY bride. I have sent the words out: Soon MY children. You will be shocked at the events’ that are about to take place before MY coming and after MY coming. Woe to you MY children who are left behind to face the antichrist. Woe to you. The time is now. Do not wait. Repentance is not for the grave. It is not. I am coming with the voice of an arch angel and the sound of a trumpet. “I AM” is here!!!!!!!!! I love you all.”

  54. Thank you so much for this message. I took all my cigarettes and threw them in a huge trashcan. I’m short so I can’t get them out even if I wanted to. I want to be spotless for Christ and these words really helped me. I just need prayer and Jesus’ healing. I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I want to live in the spirit and not my fleash anymore. Thank you again and God bless.

  55. It truly comes down to it do I love God? If I’m defileing my body I’m defileing my Lord. I’m saying I don’t believe. I am taken to my faith in him and I love him so much I don’t want to die in my sins and end up in hell. I have read these replies and being referred to other measures and do they work will they work for me? I called a quit smoking hot line and they have sent me patches but isn’t that also bad? I have followed my Lord my whole life he has delivered me from death numerous times I died one time and I was brought back I was in a bright light I couldn’t see anything but I could hear voices. I was given a opportunity to prove that I love him I have a purpose and so do you. Please pray for me my name is Rick Candelaria.

  56. Hello I just went cold turkey from smoking cigarettes, and now I am praying for my husband to quit. I had prayed and thought long and hard about quitting on November 1, 2016 and thank you Jesus I have not craved since. I am just in need of prayers and finding a church home now. But since I have stopped smoking and reading the salvation repentance prayer. I feel as though something is pulling me as if there this force draining me. What is this please help me?

    1. Unfortunately the way that the Kingdom works is the more “clean” you become the more “under attack” you are also. So now you have to pursue God more and more fervently every single day. It would be most wise of you to consider reading, and learning everything on this web page here http://www.tribulation-now.org/3685-2/ so you can take back your life and live with the authority of Jesus.

  57. Hey, I’m pretty late to this post. Wanted to let you know it was the accuser who made you see BACKSLIDDEN in that thesaurus. God knows what you’re thinking before you’re thinking it.

  58. And for everyone posting their struggles with temptation & sin, no offense, but you all MUST keep your eyes & ears in your Bibles. AT ALL TIMES, if you must. This is not a joke. READ YOUR BIBLE EVERY DAY ALL DAY IF YOU MUST.

  59. For me, personally, when I think about how happy the angels in heaven get every time a believer has victory over sin & repents, it’s a pretty dope feeling I get.

  60. Just came across this page looking for help/encouragement to quit and have read all the comments. Have any of you been successful with the advice and techniques offered here? What worked for you and what didn’t?

What is the Strong Delusion? What is the Lie? (2 Thes 2:11), It is the fallen angels (aliens) telling us that "they" are our creators.
