Tricks of the World or the Treat of Jesus

Standard

I’m writing about my pretend saints. People are playing a deadly game with their lives. They are constantly talking about how much they love the Lord. They are good at quoting scripture, but not living by it. They seek the pleasures of life, but what they are failing to understand is living for the pleasure and not the treasure; the consequence is death.

People are still in bondage even though they are faithful to going to church, paying tithes, and holding positions in the church. They are still in bondage because they aren’t living the Word. They are hearers, but not doers of the Word. They are playing the game of trick versus treat with their lives. They want to do what they want to do, when they want to do it, and with whom they want to do it. They don’t fully grasp the consequences for their playing is death.

The trick is the games people play for their pleasures in life. They are influenced by the tricks of the enemy, because Satan wants as many souls as possible for hell. He can’t put you there, but he can influence you enough to go against God to do all you want to do even when it’s wrong. The outcome is death and hell. Sadly this includes many people claiming to love Jesus and claiming to be Saints. They do anything for self gratification and satisfaction of the flesh (sex, fame, fortune, money, addictions, titles, etc). The sad part is if they don’t change and give up this ole world, they will miss the greatest treat of all; which is Heaven and seeing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

People have the right to choose what they want, but they must know it’s one or the other, it can’t EVER be both. They can continue living for the trick or they can start TRULY living for the treat. How these people are living doesn’t fool God, He knows and sees all the tricks played. There are NO secrets under the Son!!

Any person NOT living according to the Word of God knows they’re not living according to the Word of God. People know what they are doing when they are doing things against Jesus the Son and God the Father. If they are cracking open the Word and reading it OR if they are hearing it through a sermon they know what the Word says. You can’t serve two Master’s.

I don’t care how much people think they are doing right, if they are doing things against God, then they are NOT right! You can’t party with the devil then party with Jesus. People think they can sing gospel and sing R&B or whatever too, NO you can’t and I don’t care what singer says you can they are liars and NOT living by the Word of God. It’s not right and it’s against God. You can’t intertwine, Saints must completely separate themselves. It is not okay to be a someone who sleeps around or commits adultery and think you’re a Saint, you are NOT! You can’t say you love someone when in your heart you hate them or can’t stand them, it is not the heart of a true Saint.

I truly can write pages and pages. I already know many will think I’m judging, I’m not!!! I am trying to get someone to open their eyes to the truth. You simply can’t live worldly and be Godly, you just CAN’T do it! I don’t care if you’re a person in the congregation, pastor, apostle, bishop, evangelist, minister, reverend, or whoever; you CAN’T do it!

Today there are way too many people playing and pretending. They’re doing it for man. They are playing and pretending to be Holy in the sight of man. They get mad when you call them out, they say you’re judging. When the truth stings; it’s because it hits home. People feel you’re judging, but in their heart of hearts they know they’re doing wrong. They love the world more than they love God. They don’t want to give up the ways of the world. Instead they want to mix, intertwine, mingle, etc the world with Jesus when Jesus specifically says in the Bible this can’t be done. They are focused on satisfying man and his will, instead of satisfying Jesus and His will. Those whose concern is what man knows, sees, and hears INSTEAD of what Jesus and God knows, sees, and hears are against God, period! I don’t care how upset the truth makes people it doesn’t negate the fact it is the truth! I’m writing this because in love you in Jesus name! People can continue living to get their trick, but they will definitely miss the greatest treat EVER!

Do I think I’m perfect, no, I don’t. However, one thing I know that I know, that I know is I’m living for Jesus and I am making Heaven my home. I’ve lost people along the way who say they love me, because I don’t do what I once did, it don’t make me sad at all. My focus is Jesus for real, all of my games and playing is over and has been for about 10 solid years. I got saved at age 12, but I completely gave up the ways of this world 10 years ago. There’s nothing that would make me want to turn back. No matter what is before me I pray daily Jesus keep my mind and heart on Him. Everyday we all get to live is a new day we have to get it right with Jesus and our Father God. Don’t miss the opportunity and please don’t let it be too late!

Return of Christ a Far Greater Phenomenon

Standard

Although I’m not surprised, it is disturbing how people are flocking for the eclipse. I’m sick of hearing about it. Why don’t people flock to God and His Son Jesus the way they flock to other things. They idolize and worship everything other than God. Jesus is returning and trying to turn to Him when He returns is TOO LATE! He’s coming back waging war for the righteous (His people) and against the unrighteous who are the angels of the darkness. If you’re not on His side, then you’re one of the angels of darkness.

People are overly excited about the eclipse, something lasting only a few minutes when there’s God and His Son who are with us for a lifetime; giving us chance after chance to turn to Him. They wish for no soul to perish, but people still refuse to serve Him. People are so gullible and very willing to idolize almost anything. I pray people get bold and start seeking the Lord, before it’s too late. I pray those who CLAIM to love Him, but aren’t willing to keep His Command, begin to do so before it’s too late.

This eclipse is going to pass in a few short minutes, but God is with us always, now why don’t people want to serve a God like that???? They love the world much more than serving or believing in God; when all the world has for them is death!

Are you Serving Your Pastor or Jesus

Standard

I wanted to write about this, I experienced an incident this weekend where someone I know needed someone to talk to. I was flabbergasted at what I heard. I believe her story, because I see this very thing going on in churches today.

I know some people will get mad about this post. Good!!!! If you’re mad then it means it sparked something within. All I pray is people wake up before it’s too late. People must stop worshipping their leaders. I believe you give honor where it is due, but I don’t believe in worshipping no man.

The Pastor of this particular church has instructed his congregation not to speak to or be involved with this person for any reason and he openly talked about her during service. What? This is ridiculous and what is even more ridiculous is people are obliging this Pastor. It stemmed from the fact she didn’t make it from out of town in time enough to do a church chore, she was running late. The Pastor and his crew called her in and gave her the fifth degree about it. She was very hurt by the things they said to her.

He told his congregation don’t speak on anyone lives unless he judge it then they can or can’t. He told his congregation working for this church is their entire life, they don’t do anything or go anywhere else unless preapproved. Who does he think he is? He’s a modern day Jim Jones.

People better wake up to this nonsense. Pastor’s are leaders of their churches. They are over the church and are to set examples for their congregations, but they aren’t there to command and control them. These types of Pastor’s are out of line. They are completely out of order.

Who does a Pastor thinks he is telling people they don’t have the gift to prophesy, he’s the one doing that and no one else better do it unless it is first judged through him? Who is a Pastor to tell his congregation they bring everything to him and then he will pray about it and let them know the result? God gave us all gifts and the ability to pray for ourselves and over other people. He gives power to us all to work and walk in the anointing, it doesn’t come from man! People aren’t supposed to praise and worship their Pastors. They are supposed to praise and worship God the Father and His Son Jesus.

The problem with the churches today many leaders are abusers. They groom their congregations setting them up to be brainwashed. They are taking advantage of their congregations. They are preying on their congregations and they are brainwashing them into treating them like they are God. Well, they aren’t!!! People need to wake up and realize their Pastor’s knees will bow and their tongues will confess too! Stop making these Pastor’s your god’s and stop exalting them as if they are God. It’s a form of idolatry they are being idolized. These Pastor’s know exactly what they are doing. They know they’re being put on pedal stools. They know they are being praised, worshipped, and exalted. They love it. They love the power and control. Sadly their flock don’t get it. You worship no man, you ONLY worship the Father and His Son Jesus!

People who allow Pastor’s to control their everyday lives are people who aren’t connected to Jesus. I don’t care how much they think they are, they are NOT! Stop allowing your church Leaders to control your life, it is NOT theirs to control. People need to get their relationships with God and start worshipping the Creator and stop worshipping the creature! Time is running out.

It’s not the Skin Color it’s the Belief

Standard

First of all let me say this; The only supreme are God and His Son Jesus, that’s it!! The nonsense going on in this world is just that, nonsense!

Think about this; if a person were born with missing limbs, as a little person, mentally challenged in any way, etc. etc., should they be blamed or hated for it? Not at all, right? Then why do people think it’s okay to hate people on the basis of their skin color when people have no choice what skin color they are born with?

Millions in this world give too much power to skin color. It’s not the skin color it’s the belief what skin color signifies to people, which in fact is learned beliefs dictating people’s behaviors. Those types of people prematurely and immaturely think a particular way about people whose skin color is different than theirs. It is a form of ignorance and it strongly depicts a person who is uneducated concerning the true history of those they hate on the basis of skin color. These people are blind to the truth by their distorted beliefs ingrained in them by their environments, cultures, and social circles. They try to make other races victims when they themselves are victims to their own distorted ways of thinking. They are modern day slaves to their own ways of thinking, which has caused them to act inappropriately towards people who skin color is different than theirs.

There is no pure race, we all got a little bit of some other race in us. God is the ONLY supreme who purposely and specifically created us all. As I mentioned in a previous post; there is no such thing as a White man or a Black man. Have you seen one? I don’t think so! You may have seen some pale White people and some dark Black people, but in truth you’ve never seen a Black or White person! One word was meant to build up or empower and the other to breakdown or degrade. It is all a ploy to keep division going for hundreds of years. It is still going to this day which goes to show the world is still full of ignorant people who aren’t willing to change.

Look at the incident in Charlottesville, VA; a woman lost her life. It was a woman with the exact same skin color of those who willfully and boastfully stood protesting to be supreme. This clearly shows you the hate is beyond the skin color, because a White man killed a White woman. He was so angered he lashed out at anyone who beliefs were different than his own. It ended tragically for him, the woman he killed, and the people he hurt. It is not the skin color, it is the belief and those beliefs are what fuels the behaviors. This is all learned! The good news is learned behaviors can be unlearned if people are willing to change.

I never understood why some White people hate others on the basis of skin color; especially Blacks when the Black people were the one’s who were oppressed, killed, and slaves. Blacks were stripped of their true contributions to American History in every way possible. American History is all history. It should cover all races involved NOT just one race with the rest being downplayed or cut out all together. What is the hate about? The people doing the hating couldn’t tell you one single legitimate or good reason they hate. ALL they know are the lies they’ve been told watering down the truth. All they know is what they have been taught; many of which wouldn’t take the time to research true facts on their own. Instead they continue to embrace the foolishness.

No race is exempt. Every single race deals with the same issues and the same types of good and bad people. We all breath air to live. We all eat and drink water to live. We all bleed red blood and we ALL someday die. Anyone who doesn’t yeah, they’re special and different, but I guarantee you they DON’T exist!

Do you think Heaven is going to be segregated? No it won’t, so for those who hate people on the basis of skin color they may as well forget about Heaven right now!!! Hating on the basis of skin color means the hater has their issues. They’ve given too much power to their unfounded ways of believing without really understanding why. They are clueless and are merely going along, just to go along. It is heart crushingly sad people are this way.

Personally, I can’t wait until Jesus returns and do some major cleaning up. Nothing but love, will conquer hate. People in this world need more love. People in this world are in disarray, because people have cold mean hearts. People are still choosing to live by their generational curses, they don’t choose to break chains and be free to change. They continue with their wrongs ways of believing and therefore it keeps their awful behaviors significant to them. If you can’t love your fellowman or fellow woman because of their skin color, then you don’t know what love is, period!

Can’t Serve Two Master’s

Standard

People are quick to profess their love for God and His Son Jesus, yet they know in their hearts they are lying. One thing I know for sure is a person can lie all day to someone, but they can’t EVER lie to God. The Bible specifically says you can’t serve two. Many who say they love God are still trying to serve both God and their other master/s.

I saw a video where this guy says there’s no such thing as the devil. They admitted to believing there’s a God, but said there’s no devil. Hmmmmm??? It makes no sense to me. How can a person believe in one and not the other? The gentleman believed we have been programmed to fear the devil, etc. Still it makes no sense to me. People shouldn’t fear the devil, they should fear eternal damnation, which is where the devil will reside one day right along with them. The devil don’t rule hell, the devil doesn’t choose who goes to hell; people choose their own eternal place (Heaven or hell) and ultimately God places them there. The devil will be cast right back where he belongs when the time is right. The only power he has is what God has given him.

God isn’t in the business of forcing people to choose Him and live according to His Word. We all have the right and will to choose what we want. The problem with people today is they want to pick and choose when they are on the side of God and His Son Jesus. They think they can live any kind of way and still go to Heaven. It’s a lie!!!!!!! It’s a trick of the enemy. If you love Him you will live for Him and ONLY Him not sometime, but ALL of the time!

God presents to us in many ways and so does the devil. It depends on who we choose and love the most; as to how we perceive, accept, and choose to live. People think they can do some things pleasing in the sight of God at certain times in front of certain people and it makes all well. It’s a lie! God isn’t impressed or pleased. He’s heartbroken and sad at how people are not willing to give up the ways of the world. He’s sad He’s having to turn people over to reprobated minds.

People don’t want to accept chastisement from God, because they wonder how can a God allow this and that or how can a God do this and that to people. As a good parent (notice I wrote a good parent) you will implement consequences for your child’s actions. You will set guidelines, rules, etc for your child to follow. Why are people upset and angry when God chastise or answer prayers in ways other than what a person hoped for? As a parent the parent knows what’s best, why do people see it differently when it comes to God? You wouldn’t if you were on His side.

One day every last one of us will die, but we do not have to perish! How we live now determines how we live eternally. No matter how tragic the ways of the world are; many still don’t want to give it up. People who don’t want to give it up are the same folks who profess God and His Son Jesus in their lives. They are some of the same ones who are full of idolatry and caught up in titles and positions. They are faithful to going to church, but they are also the one’s full of envy, malice, jealousy, contentment, and other negative things. They are offended most times when you speak about Jesus and the rest of the time, they don’t want to hear it. These people aren’t fooling God, they are fooling self. They are the first ones who say don’t judge me. They are the first ones to say no one’s perfect. Please, give me a break!!! These are ALL excuses to continue to do what a person wants to do. Whether people take ownership or not, NO ONE can serve two Master’s.

People think because they are faithful to going to church they are on God’s side. It’s all lies and they are in denial. They think because they stand and testify or give their rendition of utterance to God they are safe; NOT SO! People know exactly what they are doing and they know when what they do isn’t pleasing to God. You can serve Him on Sunday and/or Bible study nights and do everything you want to do the rest of the week, it WON’T work!! God sees your every move. Unfortunately people love the world too much to completely and totally submit to God. Well, you can’t submit halfway, you have to be in it all the way!! You can’t live this way one minute and that way the next; that’s not how it works. You have to be about God’s business 24/7 and 365/a year! Many people are constantly trying to add to or take away from the Bible to benefit them. God said don’t do it!!!!! I’m saying in writing the benefit of it is NONE! The reason the benefit is none is you’re either for Him or against Him. There’s no in between and there’s no fence to straddle, PERIOD!

Your life now determines your life later. The choice is for each one of us to make. However, don’t for a second think you’re fooling God. He knows how you are living, He knows how you present yourself each and every second of the day. No one’s mannerism, charm, beauty, material possessions, titles, positions, fake gifts they learned to mimic, or fake spiritual performance will get them into Heaven. The ONLY way to the Father is through the Son. You must be, have to be, and got to be Born Again, and you MUST live Holy! There’s NO OTHER WAY!!!!!!!oanl

What you Allow Tells the Truth About you

Standard

Although this can affect all facets of a person’s life, I am right back on the subject of people in abusive relationships. In the past two weeks I’ve heard of 2 women and 1 man dying at the hands of their significant others.

I’ve said and written countless times if you’re too afraid to leave you’ve stayed too long. If you feel trapped, you’ve stayed too long. Too many people continue to get into abusive relationships.

I believe what people accept and allow in their lives indicates who they really are. It shows a lot about the individual. People can pretend all day the truth shows in the decisions and bad choices people make.

No one is exempt! This happens to rich and famous as well as all races and genders. The only exempt people are those who have matured to a point of understanding who they are and loving self. These people will NOT allow just any ole person into their lives. They want what is best for them. They do NOT allow their hearts to lead without using their brains at the same time. They know what feels good isn’t necessarily good for them. They know “everything glitters isn’t gold.” They know people say one thing, but will do another. They aren’t led or influenced into relationships by their feelings, because they have learned to walk away from anything that is potentially unhealthy for them. It’s something people learn to do when they learn from their past choices and decisions, when they figure out and work on self, and when they learn to love self enough to demand better for self.

Many people are full of baggage they’ve carried for years which has caused them insecurities to include low esteem and low self confidence. The problem is people are in denial. Most people think they have it together, but if they would step away from their feelings and look at the truth they will see they don’t. People need to step out of their feelings into the truth. The truth hurts, because it’s the truth. The truth shows us the real deal whether it’s accepted or not.

Many people choose to get into and stay into unhealthy relationships because they are looking for love. They think by being with someone they will have love and security. You can’t find something in someone you don’t have in yourself. When people do this they are left with more heartaches and pains then before they entered into their relationships. They are totally blind by their perceptions of the truth. Their self esteem and confidence is very low and they normally are full of self blame. They lie and try to hide the abuse they endure and the take the blame many times when they are publicly abused.

All of this allowance and acceptance is due to what people feel about self. They don’t think they deserve better. They accept the wrong people into their lives. They desperately want love, when they obviously don’t know what love is, and when they don’t even love self.

When entering into relationships people must know what they need above what they want and the difference between the two. If you don’t know the difference research it and then think about it. In relationships getting what you want is based mostly on feelings of the heart (sex, money, looks, statuses of people, material things). None of it will hold a relationship together and none of it makes a person into who you wish for them to be. People are led by their feelings and emotions. They want what makes them feel good instead of what is good for them. This has led many into abusive relationships with deadly consequences for many.

Stop thinking it’s love when a person wants constant controlling tabs on you, when they tell you what to wear, when they tell you where you can and can’t go, when they ostracize you from others, when they want to control your time, when you can’t do anything without them being present, when they (push, spit on, hit you in any form) you, when they are very disrespectful in how they speak to you while alone or in public, or when they have total control over the relationship. There are many other things abusive people will do, NONE of it is love. They are displaying dangerous warning signs.

There is a difference between loving and caring for a person’s well being versus trying to control a person in obsessive and possessive ways. It is NOT love! People who do this has deep seated issues. Those who accept and allow it also has their own deep seated issues. There are ALWAYS signs, I don’t care if they’re subtle or not, they are always present. Love isn’t blind, people are blind in what they think is love.

Many people get caught up in their feelings. They think what they feel is real. They think what they feel is good for them. How do you know what’s good for you when you don’t know what love is and you don’t love yourself enough to adhere to what’s NOT good for you? People who are searching for love grab and hold on to anything making them feel good, even when it’s not good. They are blind by those feelings and emotions. They oftentimes make excuses for their abusers. They don’t understand this is enabling and giving their abusers the green light to continue abusing them. It has NOTHING to do with love.

When a person doesn’t know their worth outwardly they make act differently, but inside they are full of insecurities coming to the surface. It shows through the allowances and acceptances in their lives. A person can fake and pretend all day, but the truth shows. As I stated earlier NO ONE is exempt. Until people wake up they will continue to get into and stay in abusive relationships. Unfortunately many will continue to die at their hands of their significant others.

Stop Walking Away During Your Storm

Standard

Over the years I’ve known many people who want to give up when they are going through trials and tribulations (their storms). They get offended and upset when you say you’re praying for them or if you try to give them words of encouragement. Oftentimes they seem angry and withdrawn from people who are trying to support them. These people are those who need to go back and check where their faith and beliefs lie. They want to give up in the midst of their storms. This isn’t appropriate actions of a true believer.

I know all about storms and weathering storms. I’ve been there time and time again, but never once did I want to give up or not want encouragement. People get caught up in self and trying to solve problems on their own. They lose focus and therefore get lost in their problems. They don’t act on their faith, they basically go in shutdown mode.

When you’re going through your storms, it isn’t the time to get angry at God or to give up. Instead it is when a person should pray without cease and trust Jesus to be who He say He is. Let your faith be unshakable. Things doesn’t always turn out the way we want, but God is always in the midst of it all. Activate the power Jesus gave you and cast your mountain into the sea!

God always answer prayers! He may not answer them the way we hope, but He always answers them. Many times we think we know best, however; it is Jesus who always knows best. We simply have to believe it.

Each time we hold steadfast and weather our storms it makes us stronger and stronger. As we go through it strengthens us and give us testimonies. Our testimonies are reminders of our endurance and strength, but they also help others through their storms. It teaches others what God has done for one, He can do for all; if we believe!
