Podcast: Ending Disconnection With God – Part 2

Many have told us how the insights in our popular podcast How to End Disconnection With God have been "life-changing." Despite this, some report that they still beat themselves up or otherwise struggle to work through guilt, shame or regret about not doing what Jesus said to do or “making the same stupid mistakes over and over." They feel rejected by God for these failures even though they've been diligently "seeking the Kingdom first" more than ever before (Mt 6:33). If this sounds like you, you probably have not yet learned how to "apply the blood of Christ"—perhaps the most important habit for staying connected to God. You're not alone as it took Tim and Katrina decades to discover and establish this important healthy habit and quickly deal with bad feelings. After we conclude the podcast, stay tuned for a "post-credits" segment we recorded immediately after because Katrina got a new insight that explains Revelation 12:11 literally (before Tim ever did!). In other words, by learning and practicing the wisdom in this teaching, you personally will be part of an end time prophecy fulfillment!

Upon listening to the podcast, Katrina commented:

We really nailed a lot of stuff that people think inside but usually don’t have words to express.

Also, VERY IMPORTANT note: the Scripture I quoted about what Paul said in 1 Cor 11 is directly talking about applying the blood in an unworthy manner in relation to how you treat the collective body of believers. I know this and please do not send me messages that I misused this Scripture (saying this even before this podcast is posted). I am merely pointing out that there is more than one way, not just how you treat others, to try to drink the wine and eat the bread that brings condemnation on yourself instead of freedom.

Outline of topics covered by Katrina: Read more...

  • 2:19 - Perverting God's genuine love toward you/rejecting God's love and not aware how you are doing it (not cool)
  • 3:00 - Tim's testimony of how important self-forgiveness has been in his life to learn to walk with God properly (Huh, and I thought as his wife that he was perfect. He he)
  • 3:57 - Are you cutting yourself off from God, like Tim did, even when you are still trying to follow God?
  • 4:48 - Sins that you actually enjoy but wish you did not enjoy. (Ugh! This pull of the flesh can be so cruel!)
  • 6:00 - Is your religion worthless? (It's worth asking)
  • 6:40 - Are you self-righteous and don't even know it? (Self righteous means not God righteous)
  • 8:20 - HALT! (You know-like stop here to find out what is against you in fighting to be righteous). Are you judging yourself unfairly (The unfair judge)?
  • 9:55 - Reaching toward perfection verses being a perfectionist. Which camp do you fall in to? (Watch out! There might be lions and tigers and bears in the camp you pick. Oh my!)
  • 11:00 - Forgiving yourself when you have hurt other people and feel bad about it (I sure would be scared if we all did not feel bad after hurting others). God actually is more powerful than whatever you think you have damaged (Yes- really).
  • 13:00 - The guilt of every parent (yes, every parent. It's okay to forgive yourself).
  • 15:14 - Knowing only guilt our whole life, it becomes 'comfortable' to have guilt (letting go of guilt can feel so awkward).
  • 15:48 - Why do we hold on to not forgiving ourselves?
  • 17:20 - Are you miserable from your guilt and sharing your misery? Do you even know you are miserable and sharing your misery? (This is disconnecting you from EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY).
  • 17:57 - Your standards or God's standards? You choose (Be careful because what standards you choose, you automatically apply to everyone).
  • 18:50 - Can you forgive others properly if you don't forgive yourself? (listen here to find out)
  • 19:19 - How were you forgiven? How is anyone forgiven? Do you really know how to 'apply The Blood of Jesus'? Do you feel set free?
  • 20:30 - The difference between the blood of animals mentioned in the Old Testament and Christ's blood mentioned throughout the Scriptures, and the difference between the Aaronic High Priesthood and Christ's High Priesthood. (Let's get that Death Angel to pass over us shall we?) Go through the WHOLE cycle of forgiveness/applying The Blood or it won't count and you will not be free.
  • 28:09 - Tim talks about how each of us tries to make ourselves out to be a 'special case' that The Blood cannot cover. Also, watch out for 'cheap grace'! Very important note here: the Scripture that I, Katrina, quoted about what Paul said in 1 Cor 11 is directly talking about applying the blood in an unworthy manner in relation to how you treat the collective body of believers. I know this and please do not send me messages that I misused this Scripture (saying this even before this podcast is posted). I am merely pointing out that there is more than one way, not just how you treat others, to try to drink the wine and eat the bread that brings condemnation on yourself instead of freedom.
  • 30:10 - Dealing with those parts of you that are pulling at you to not die to yourself (addictions) when other parts want to get free and leave those lusts. Getting help from the only place that can get you truly free.
  • 30:34 - Tim tells how cheap grace can get you into the trouble of hearing, “Depart from me. I never knew you”!
  • 32:35 - This is not forgiveness by works.
  • 33:13 - God is good. Time to let His goodness touch you and make your life count.
  • 36:07 - Are you flippant about the forgiveness of God toward you?
  • 36:35 - Tim shares his testimony of how he needed to forgive himself over financial issues and what he needed to learn before he could get his breakthrough from 'habitual regret'.
  • 39:43 - This is one of the signs you have moved in to proper self-forgiveness/applying The Blood.
  • 39:57 - King David and self-forgiveness when you have hurt other people. “Against You and only You have I done evil in thy sight”! (Huh?!)
  • 45:35 - Katrina does her own work of self-forgiveness to testimony right before your very own eyes. (Tah Daa! That's how it's done folks. Now your turn.).
  • 50:16 - Tim shares how nothing is impossible with God, even forgiving murderers.
  • 52:16 - God is perfect goodness, love and power. Do you treat God as if He is perfect toward yourself and everyone else? Is there anything in your mind that you think God cannot fix?
  • 52:57 - Why does God hate sin?
  • 53:40 - Spiritual opportunity costs verses permanent costs.
  • 54:53 - How to properly apply The Blood, all the steps laid out for ya. This is how to get back to that 'lovin feelin' with God (Yeah, how it actually is done finally and not just talk about it).
  • 55:27 - Feeling disconnected from God? This is a discussion on one area that will help get that to disappear. Be careful what is being glorified by forgiving yourself or not.
  • 56:57 - Katrina's testimony of being 'called on the carpet' for rejecting The Blood (Yeah, very bad idea to do that. I know that now).
  • 59:00 - One way Satan keeps us in torment.
  • 1:00:25 - An exercise you can do with a friend to see what staying only in the stage of “I'm sorry” feels like on both sides.
  • 1:02:12 - Tim admonishes to become aware of what is driving you.
  • 1:05:48 - 1:15:03 - Don't go anywhere! This is where the podcast ends and the post credits begin. Trust us- you definitely do not want to miss what we say: You get to help fulfill prophecy! Btw- There is another exercise you can do to get in to a healthy habit of forgiving yourself in this section.

Thank you so much for sending this to me. It’s definitely what I needed. I found it to be enlightening.

After a recent job review, I have not been able to let go and get rid of a knot in my stomach. But I’m getting closer to figuring out what it is and why it triggered this. It definitely has to do with perfectionism and my wanting to be in control. I need to admit that I need to let that go because it’s sin and to forgive myself for my shortcomings and not always being kind because at work I think people should just do their jobs…. Not realizing that they are only human like me and have there hang ups and issues that prevent them from doing things the way they should or the way I think they should.

Gotta work through this. Thank you so much for reaching out.

Dear Katrina & Tim

Great stuff!
I think this might be a blessing to most listeners.
May Jesus Messiah bless you both, and I´ll bless you by stating this.
I´ll take the pod with me into my shabat group next friday.
Be blessed!

Greetings from

Brilliant, Tim and Katrina!
Thank you. How many of us “Christians” have unwittingly insulted God, refusing the blood of His son by being stuck in “sorry”.

Also, what a lack of progress and productivity not forgiving self creates.
I had to stop a couple of times towards the end of the podcast to say “thank you” to our Father rather than my usual “sorry”. Now to get on with things!

Hey Tim and Katrina, your podcast is great. Alot of interesting insights. I just have a question in regards to your comments on salvation. Where in Roman 3:28 it says we are justified by faith apart from the works of the law. Do you think salvation can be lost if it is mentioned as a gift?

Reply
    Tim McHyde - January 17, 2018

    Jonathan, absolutely salvation can be lost until you receive it by being born again/glorified because we have free will and can change our mind. Jesus said if we put our hand to the plow but then look back we are not be fit for the kingdom (Lk 9:62) Jesus also said he has the ability blot people’s names out of the book of life which means they would lose their salvation (Rev 3:5).

Great job on yet another life-changing podcast. As we discussed in fellowship on Sunday, I have been struggling with these issues lately so this is just what I needed to get my focus where it needs to be, on what Yeshua did for us on the cross. I love the addition at the end about pleading the blood of Christ during our hourly prayers. Absolutely brilliant stuff.

Is it possible to unknowingly commit the sin you described about the misuse of applying the blood?
There are days where I feel like my life is cursed and I often wonder if this is why.

    Tim McHyde - January 22, 2018

    Jen, I’m sorry if there was any confusion on what Katrina said but she was referring to Paul’s statement about people taking the Lord’s supper unworthily and bringing condemnation and results in sickness and even death (1Co 11:27, 29-30). You are not cursed because you did this. I don’t think you’re cursed at all actually but we tend to imagine that because of the difficulty of discharging guilt, shame and regret. Hit us up for chat and we can work through it.

      Thanks for talking with me and for clarifying. Understanding isn’t always easy for me. I’m glad you have this site up because I’d still be scratching my head over the meaning of scripture. Thank you for doing what you do, Tim & Katrina. Yehovah bless everything you do.

Yes love is all about self respect you love yourself you respect yourself . You respect yourself you respect others and by so, you love others. It fits with the command of loving others like you love yourself.
