You get Exactly What You’ve Allowed

Standard

In relationships if you don’t love yourself don’t expect for anyone else to love you. What I am saying here is many people are in bad relationships because they’ve become involved with people who are like them (messed up emotionally). Stop doing this especially thinking the one you chose to be will love you when you don’t love yourself. What you fail to understand is the person you’re trying to love don’t love his or herself either. They will treat you exactly how you treat yourself (no respect, no love, no care).

Many people take any type of treatment, because they’re trying to make something out of nothing. You can’t change a person no matter what you do unless they want to change. Before you try tackling someone else’s issues, you must first tackle your own!

Love can’t be bought! A person will love what you do for them, but not love you! If you start a relationship off by trying to buy love, that’s what you will have to do to keep the person you’re with. Nothing you give a person will make them love you or want to be with you.

Many people get into relationships seeking something they are missing and oftentimes never really had (this thing called love). Love first starts with you! When you love yourself you know what love is. You will know you don’t have to buy love nor do you have to take any unnecessary drama to be loved by someone.

The person you’re with will treat you exactly how you allow, because you’ve taught them exactly how to treat you! When you take unnecessary crap from someone they will surely give it. People try you to see what you will take and when they see they can get away with crap, they will freely oblige you with it! It can be disrespect, abuse, cheating, lying, manipulation, using you, or whatever. If you allow it they will do it!

It all goes back to what you think and feel about yourself. It’s also how you treat yourself! If you have no standards, you get no standards. If you have no requirements, no requirements is what you will get. If you have no self respect, you get none. The list goes on!

A person who loves his or herself will always feel good about self. This type of individual will treat you right. Anything less than that gets you any type of treatment. Any individual who allows his or herself to be mistreated in any way need to look inward at self. You are your own problem! You can’t change anyone and no one can change you! However, if you allow someone to mistreat you, they will!

To Know of Him and to Know Him are Totally Different

Standard

Many people know of Him, but they don’t serve Him. Many claim to know Him, and love Him, yet are trying to serve two masters. If you know of Him, but don’t serve Him that is your choice. It is also your choice to claim to know Him, but still serve the world as well. In this case you still don’t know Him, you only know of Him.

To know of Him means you heard or read about Him (somehow you were told, normally it’s through traditional ways). To claim to know and love Him, yet still living for the world means you only know of Him. You can’t have it both ways!

To know Him and serve Him means you keep His commandments. It means for God and Jesus you live and are willing to die! It means you live for Him and you are only on ONE side and that’s the side of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. it means you have a daily prayer life and personal relationship with Him. You understand although you are in this world, you are not of this world. That’s the difference!

All of the people who are trying to intertwine the ways of the world with Jesus in ANY way are wrong and Jesus doesn’t dwell in them. No way possible! Too many are jumping on the band wagon to mix and mingle the world with the Word of God. All I have to say is this; you can do whatever it is you want to do, it won’t EVER work! God didn’t intend for it to be this way.

People are confused, therefore they fall for anything. Those in positions of power within the churches who are doing this are confused about their stance with Jesus Christ. They are telling people it’s okay to bring the world into the churches and do all the things the world is doing. It isn’t! If as a child of God I can do whatever I want to do, when and how I want to do it, why do I need to serve God? That is NOT the way it is supposed to be.

People want a burger king style life “have it their way.” This is how you can live when you’re NOT living for Christ. When you are living for Christ, your life is no longer your own and you will understand it. You don’t want to be a part of the world even though for the time being you must dwell in it. You are intentional in your comings, goings, and in your doings.

Those who trying to put one foot on both sides are TRULY only fooling self. They are delusional! If both feet aren’t on the side of Jesus, then you’re on the other side, period! You can’t serve Him when you want to and you can’t mingle and play around with the ways of the other side. You must come completely off the other side and onto the side of Jesus to live for Him. There is NO OTHER WAY!

Stop being fooled by the stuff you’re hearing and seeing and get to know the Creator for yourselves. If a person don’t truly know Him they will be easily persuaded and deceived. I was looking at the mess about BeyoncĂ© Church Mass, I shook my head in disgust how people who claimed to live for Jesus partook in such a mockery of Christ. Trust and believe that had NOTHING to do with Jesus Christ in no form at all! You can’t mix the work of the devil with God’s work and it be okay, because it is not!

I already know people will say I’m judging, I am not! Read the Word for yourself. You cannot, I repeat, you cannot serve Jesus and be a part of the devil’s work at the same time. Bottom line, you’re either for Jesus or against Jesus, you can’t have it both ways. If you’re against Him in any way, then you’re against him, period! He’s rather you be “hot or cold” which means for OR against Him then to be “lukewarm.” Why? It’s because lukewarm is a figment of the imagination. Even if a person chooses lukewarm, they are choosing cold!

Love Isn’t Love When it’s One Sided

Standard

Why are you crying over someone who doesn’t want you?????????????????????????
Why are you taking up space in your mind pining over someone who has let you go?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
I guess I’m made different from many others, because I don’t want anyone who doesn’t want me.

There are a lot of men and women who are stuck, because they are still messed up over someone who walked away. If a person wants to walk, let them walk! We all have the right to do so! When a person is caught up in their feelings they forget they’re not in a relationship along. They only think about how they feel, what they want, and desire. They never think about what they actually need. This is why people find it difficult to let go.

You can’t force anyone to be with you. If a person wants out let them go. There’s nothing you can do to keep your man or woman with you if they really want to go. People cheat because they want to. They cheat because of what’s inside of them. No matter the issues a relationship has, cheating individuals will cheat because they want too! Stop crying and losing control over someone who doesn’t even care.

If people get out of their feelings they can see the truth. Love yourself enough to not allow people to dictate your happiness. Love yourself enough to be able to stand alone when the one you love doesn’t love you. No matter how much you love a person or how much you give a person, if they don’t love you nothing you do will make them love you. They may love what you do for them, but it doesn’t mean they love you!

Many people render themselves powerless to people who don’t care less! Individuals must learn to look past feelings to see the truth of what is really happening. It’s a wonderful thing to be in love with someone, but if that someone isn’t in love with you you’re treading treacherous waters.

Life goes on! Loving yourself gives you the understanding of what love is. It empowers you with the ability to let go anyone or anything from your life that is trying to take your peace, happiness, and joy. Stop trying to run in the direction of someone who is running in the opposite direction of you!

As I’ve always said, “people get in relationships and stay in relationships for the wrong reasons.” Your love is null and void if the person you love doesn’t love you. That isn’t a relationship! A person will stay with you for the benefits you offer (security, sex, material things, etc, etc). However, it doesn’t mean they love you. Stop trying to buy people’s love, because you will NEVER have enough money to do so! You can have Steve Job’s or Oprah Winfrey’s money, but if the person you’re with do not love you, no amount of money will make them love you or stay with you.

As for cheating, there are always signs. Anyone who says there aren’t are blind to the truth. I don’t care how subtle, the signs exist. People can ignore them, but they still do exist. When a person is caught up in their feelings they are blind to the truth. Yet, the signs still exist. As humans, we put ourselves in bad and unhealthy situations for lack of self love. When a person doesn’t love his or herself they fall into many unhealthy situations because fact is they can’t see beyond their feelings and emotions.

Blind to Your sins

Standard

If you’re reading the Bible any at all you know if you’re living for or against God. Although some people think their sins are hidden they are not and therefore those people are fooling themselves. They are too caught up in what they want to do; they are double minded and living ways which are displeasing to Jesus.

Despite of what many have said, there is only ONE way to the Father (God) which is through His Son Jesus. We can’t live any kind of way and think we’re Heaven bound. It doesn’t work that way! The Bible says “strait is the gate and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Life may have crooks and bends, but the “Way” doesn’t have crooks and bends. There is only ONE way! A person is either for Him or against Him. I don’t care who you are, what your title is, or your position it applies to all. There are no big I’s or little you’s in the Kingdom of God and His ways are not man’s ways.

People are sold out to man. Their biggest concerns are appearing righteous in the eyesight of man. They care about what man has to say. They want to be pumped up in the eyesight of man. God sees everything we do whether good or bad. He knows all of the wolves in sheep’s clothing and He knows they come in all forms and fashions. Putting on a show in front of man may get you “accolades” in man’s eyesight, but in the sight of God you’re getting a foot closer to hell if you don’t repent and change.

It never ceases to amaze me how motivated people pretend to be for Jesus only to please man. They go through the motions of trying to present themselves as if they’re holy only to please man. As soon as man’s head is turned they are turning up doing whatever they want to do. It’s foolish, because the same man they are pretending for will someday bow to the Father just as they will someday bow! No one is exempt. One day “EVERY knee shall bow and heart confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of the Father.”

For those who are living double lives God has His eyes on them? People are living for who they love the most. IF it were Jesus people wouldn’t be double minded in their ways, period! The Son and the Father sees all! I don’t care how much a person look or acts the part; if they’re not living for Jesus they’re serving the devil and are a part of darkness.

You’re outside of His will when you’re doing things your way! People are quick to say a person is anointed. How can a person be anointed when they aren’t even serving God! People continue to get the anointing mixed up with emotions. When a person is truly serving the true and living God they will know and understand the difference.

People are completely blind to their sins. Why do you think this is so? It is because they are in love with what they do, want, and desire. They are in bondage and don’t realize it. They are captivated by the ways of the world and it’s why they go along with anything to get along. They conform to the ways of the world.

I’ve long come to realize people don’t like the truth. I’m not here to water down anything. The truth is the truth like it or not. Too many people who are professing Christ are tiptoeing around the truth. Not me!! It is what it is and it goes for me, you, and everyone else.

Doing Right Amongst the Do Wrongs

Standard

I found out when you have given your life to Christ and you are for real about your walk with the Lord people can’t deal with the new you. It’s very sad to me how people don’t want to associate with you if you’re not sinning with them the way you used to.

Some people claim they love Jesus, but when they find out your walk is serious knowing they are faking, they don’t want anything to do with you. They treat you like you’re doing something wrong. The only words I have for those people are ” I’m praying for you and so long.” I’m not turning back for no one or nothing. People make this journey way more difficult then it should be and I believe it’s because those people don’t want to give up their old ways. They think their joy is in the world, when the world has nothing to offer any of us, other than death if people don’t come up out of it.

The Bible mentions how people will be offended concerning the Word of God. It is so true! There are a lot of people who have an issue with you when you start talking about the goodness of the Lord. They don’t want to see you or hear you. Isn’t it sad? If you want to do something displeasing to God then they are all for it, but want to do right; then they have issues with you!

It’s very unimaginable for some people to believe anyone can live a Holy life. If a person doesn’t believe it, then they don’t truly believe in the Word. Jesus wouldn’t have said it were so if it weren’t possible. Anyone who chooses to walk the straight and narrow for Jesus can do so, if they choose.

Doing right is just as easy to do as doing wrong. There are rewards for both which will either be Hell or Heaven. A lot of people simply do not want to give up their old ways. They think they have it going on in this world doing what the world loves doing which is sinning.

The Bible says “people will love the world more than they love Jesus.” It is very true! It is seen every single day. It is very sad to see how the people of the world are right back in the days of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah. People are blind by their sins. They don’t realize time is at hand. No one is here to stay.

No matter what or who, don’t allow anything thrown at you to shake your faith. If people don’t want to be around you because your life has changed, then oh well. Keep it moving! We are supposed to be changed! If people don’t like who you have become in Christ, it’s their problem not yours. Keep going and growing in Christ!

Sometimes people will test you just to see are you who you proclaim to be. Be that light in this dark world. Regardless of what you used to do remember you’re not the person you once were. When people come at you with the old mess stand firmly on the Word of God. Tell them boldly; no way, not me! Let them know you’re not what you used to be! You are now a part of the Royal Family with the greatest King on High sitting on the Throne.

I thank Him everyday for taking a wretched soul like mine cleaning it up. I thank Him for giving me the desire to truly serve Him. When people shun me, it is alright; they can’t take my joy, because they didn’t give it.

It’s Written and Already Finished

Standard

Many people are defensive when it comes to the Bible and living for God. They are very controversial and want to get mad or debate over it. The ONLY people who carry on this way are the ones who are trying to straddle the non-existing fence. I am appalled at how many of these church leaders are falsely teaching their members. They will do and say anything to please the people. They go along and conform to please man and the world. They are teaching their versions of the Word and NOT the Word of God. The are both adding to and taking away to suffice man. God said, don’t do it!

I don’t care how people try to twist it, the Word is the Word. When ALL else fails and pass away; the Word will yet stand! God said it and it is done! It is finished! You can drop the mic on that cause it is over!! People are too busy trying to manipulate, twist, and turn it to fit their lifestyles, but it is finished and it is UNCHANGING. Jesus taught the same way for everyone, He didn’t do anything special to fit in with no one. He didn’t call His disciples by titles or any of what we see going on today.

I have been viewing a lot of videos lately of pastor’s saying this and that. They are lying and are preaching totally against God’s Word. If you don’t know the Lord for yourself please get a personal relationship with Him and get into the Word daily, because these wolves are out in sheep’s clothing. They are professing one thing and living another. You must read and study it for yourself. If it’s more important to pastors to teach their version of the Bible versus the truth, then they aren’t called from God. No way, no how! I don’t care who they are!

I’m not judging anyone, I am telling the truth. Too much foolishness is going on and people are going right along with it, because they are too busy worshipping their pastors as their master. They are bowing down to man and they are man pleasers.

Many more concerned about being judged and not at all about getting their lives together and right with God. If a person wants hell to be their home, then hell is waiting for you!

When a person doesn’t have a true relationship with God the Father and His Son Jesus, then they sure don’t have one with the Holy Spirit. Therefore they may do or say anything opposite of what is written in the Bible. That is how the devil operates; everything right he portrays as wrong and everything wrong he portrays as right. If you’re truly serving Jesus, then your lifestyle will be proof of it and NO MAN can fool you with his or her honeycomb ways of speaking. You will know the truth for yourself. Anyone who knows the truth, yet accepts the lies need to check his or herself. Never go against the Word of God for no man. It is written and it is finished! It’s as simple as that!!

Salvation is Free Take it or Leave it

Standard

It is every individual’s choice to either believe it and receive it or deny and ignore. Every last one of us on earth has the right to choose whom we will serve. When Jesus died on the cross He paid the price for you, you, and I. He didn’t die for anyone in particular, He died for each and everyone of us. Salvation is free for anyone who chooses to accept it. Jesus dying on the cross gave us all the same opportunity to live for Him. He died for our sins making it possible for us to not have to live sinful lives only to gain eternal damnation.

Although salvation is free, it doesn’t mean a person can accept salvation and live any kind of way. No, you can’t, no I can’t! We are given the most valuable gift offered which is salvation and if a person doesn’t feel it’s good enough to make them want to give up this world, then that choice is theirs to make.

Too many people are caught up in pleasing man and making sure man sees them playing church. It’s important to some people they are seen as Saints of God, when they know they aren’t. They want the status, but not the lifestyle. They know they are playing the role and that is it! Sad, because the one’s they’re pretending for are pretending too. “How can the blind lead the blind, lest they both fall in the ditch?” That is straight from the Word of God!

Not for one second will I say as flesh and bone we won’t or don’t sin. What I am saying is “the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” This let’s us no we can live holy lives if we choose. We must choose too! As a person matures in Christ they are no longer babes in Christ. A person who have given up this world for Christ becomes a new creature. Everything about this new creature is new, the old ways should be no more. When people refuse to give up their olds ways they fail to mature and grow spiritually. They continue to crawl and stay on milk when they should be walking and eating meat. There’s no way possible to live for Christ and remain the same!

The problem arises for many, because although they claim to be new creatures living for the Lord, they are only delivering “lip service.” They speak it and act it, but they don’t live it. They are speaking, acting, and living in vain. In this race, your talk and walk must align. If it doesn’t what you’re doing is all in vain.

With all the signs and wonders we are seeing in this world I pray people wake up before it’s too late. God is definitely showing us some things. People are going along their merry ways ignoring all of the signs. The Bible say “God wishes for none of us to perish.” However, the decision is ours to make. How we live now determines our eternal home. Looking and acting the part will help you in a movie, but this is real life; and therefore it won’t help you at all. Man can put you on a pedal stool, but God can put you in Hell. The only thing will help you is when your talk aligns with your walk!

To live for God and His Son Jesus is to gain eternal life. To live for the world is to gain the world at the cost of losing your soul. It’s definitely not worth it when Jesus paid the price long ago and made salvation free.
