Is Your Living in Vain

Standard

Many people are claiming to love Jesus so much, yet clearly don’t have their priorities straight. As I’ve mentioned many times before, there is nothing wrong with material possessions as long as you’re not possessed and obsessed by those things. There is nothing wrong with material prosperity as long as your main focus is spiritual prosperity! Everything you obtain will mean nothing in the end. All of the treasures we lay up on this earth will be left and used by someone else.

People are so into trying to obtain fame and fortune, they forget the most important thing, which is putting God first. They are puffed up by their accomplishments. They get big headed and begin to make things about self. They become their own gods and gods to people.

God nor His Son Jesus are impressed by what you have, because if your life isn’t first about Jesus, nothing you have is worth a thing. You can have what the world considers as “having it all.” Yet, truth is you have nothing if you don’t have Jesus and are living for Him! There’s way more to the process of being a Saint of God than to simply say you have Jesus in your life. It’s vain talk if you’re not living it! Too many proudly talk it, but don’t walk it. Your living is in vain!

People foolishly seek after the worldly possessions, gaining the whole world ONLY to lose their souls in the end. They strive to be all of that in the eyes of man. The same people you’re trying to stand on a pedal stool for will be on bending knees same as you some day!

God surely isn’t pleased or impressed by what you have obtained. It’s great in the eyes of man and it’s great to you, but He’s not impressed! The Bible says ‘seek ye first the kingdom of God and it’s righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” We seek after things of the flesh, (those things pleasing in the eye sight of man), but God knows exactly what we need.

We are all getting older, no one is getting younger. People of the world are running amok. They are scattered about like leaves in the wind doing everything unpleasing in the sight of Jesus the Son and God the Father. The Holy Spirit can’t lead them, because they only proclaim Jesus from their lips, but as the Bible says “their hearts are from them.”

People must turn to Jesus before it’s too late! Time is running out!

He is Still on the Throne, Prayer Still Works

Standard

I know in these days and times a lot of people are discouraged, but don’t be, because God is still in the business of answering prayers. The Bible says “faith without works is dead.” You must have faith that Jesus will do what He says He will do! Prayers aren’t always answered right away, matter of fact, most times they aren’t answered right away. However, He always answers our prayers in one way or another. It’s not always as we would like, but nevertheless He knows what’s best for us.

I encourage you my sisters and brothers in Christ to stay strong! Don’t look at your problems, rather look at your praise! No matter how hard, no matter what it is, keep giving Him the praise! In this life we will constantly go through our hills and valleys, but He’s the God of those hills and valleys. You’re not alone!

We all go through and we will do so until our time on this earth is over. People can grow as they go through or they can allow their struggles to defeat them. Everything we go through is a testimony of strength and endurance for other people. It is also a reminder to us to see where He has brought us through!

Nothing in life is easy, sometimes it seems harder when you’re living for Jesus the Son and God the Father. It’s because the devil is always looking for soldiers especially those who have given their lives to Jesus and are living for Him. Sometimes it makes you cry out, Lord, Lord. Sometimes it makes you feel as if you can’t make it, but trust me you can and you will! The devil is here to “steal, kill, and destroy.” Our God in Heaven is here to “give us life and life more abundantly.” Life can be hard, it can deal some heavy blows, YOU can take it and definitely make it, because you belong to the God who sits high and looks low!

Don’t allow doubt and discouragement to rob you of what God has for you! Jesus and our Father God wants us to stay strong and not be discouraged. We shouldn’t doubt either, we must believe He is who He say He is! The devil and his soldiers are doing everything they can to attack God’s children. They are going after our physical bodies, our mental states of minds, and our very souls. They want to destroy God’s children. My sisters and brothers the devil is a defeated foe under your feet. You have the power to give him a TKO in the name of Jesus!

If you don’t believe you have power you will act as if you don’t and ultimately render yourselves powerless against the tricks of the enemy. The Holy Spirit is here to lead and guide God’s people, but we must walk always by “faith and not by sight.” Don’t wait until you’re going through something to activate your power. Use the power Jesus gave us and allow the Holy spirit to work in you and through you. Seek Jesus in all you do. Stand strong against the attacks of the enemy. Be a true warrior for Jesus, because one day He’s coming back and He’s going to be ready for battle. Stand strong, stay strong, and continue to stay on the side of the Great and Mighty King Jesus. One day you will hear Him say “well done my good and faithful servant.” I don’t know about you, but that is what I want to hear Him tell me.

The Bible says “watch and pray.” We have to continue to stay prayed up! We must pray without cease. God is still on the throne and He’s still in charge and control. Don’t think otherwise, because if you do it’s a way the devil can get into your mind and try to take over. “Resist the devil and he will flee.” I won’t say he’s not coming back again and again, but I do say KEEP RIGHT ON RESISTING! Stay in the race and your reward will be great!! Keep holding on, keep believing, and keep trusting in Jesus!

Anointing and Emotions; Gifts and Talents

Standard

I wrote about this a couple of years ago. Time goes fast it’s hard to keep up sometimes. Therefore, I wanted to revisit this topic. I’ve mentioned before that I am a gospel singer/songwriter and the things I see and heard by people who profess to be Saints of God made me want to revisit this topic.

A lot of people think because they can sing or speak well they are supposed to be pastors, etc. This isn’t true. The only people who are supposed to be pastors are those who are called by God. As Saints of God, we should all be messengers, but definitely NOT pastors. In my personal opinion, I believe that is one of the biggest problems in churches today. People are preaching God’s word who aren’t called to do so. If a person is called from God they will be qualified to do what they do, they would stand on the Word of God, and they will certainly TRULY live the life. A lot of pastors are about their business, but not God’s business and it shows in how they run their churches and by what they allow in their churches. Too many people who are becoming leaders in the churches of today are elected by man and NOT God. This is a big reason a lot of shenanigans are taking place in churches today. Worldly people are becoming pastors allowing worldly things in their churches. People who are sincere and going for the right reasons can’t get what they need, because too much of the world is now inside the churches of today. This isn’t the work of God!

I’ve seen many people who sings beautifully and it touches you. However, it is NOT the anointing! It is emotions! People are able to relate to the words of a song which moves them to tears. It is not because of the anointing of the person singing the song. How can a person be anointed when they are doing everything against God. Sounding good and being able to motivate a crowd doesn’t mean a person is anointed by God. It appalls me when I hear people say he or she are anointed singers, when they are hypocrites! I’m only writing on what I’ve seen personally. I know the lifestyle these people lead and therefore I know no way it’s the anointing. I’m not judging, I’m telling the truth!

The same with gifts and talents. People use the words loosely, but don’t have the true understanding. A person may be gifted by man’s definition of what being gifted means, but it has nothing to do with spiritual gifts at all. In the Bible it speaks specifically of 9 Gifts of the Spirit and 9 Fruits of the Spirit. There is nothing wrong with people saying someone is gifted, however people need to understand it is a talent they are very good at, but it isn’t a spiritual gift.

I won’t list the Gifts of the Spirit or the Fruits of the Spirit. I think if a person doesn’t know what they are, this is great opportunity to study the Fruits of the Spirit so to apply them in your life. Pray for the Gifts of the Spirit and walk in them through the power of the Holy Spirit.

We can either go through life ONLY receiving what is being taught in the churches or we can develop our own individual relationships with Jesus the Son and God the Father. We must know Jesus and God for ourselves, and the Holy Spirit will keep us as we walk daily in the name of the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. Your leaders can’t get you into Heaven and they can’t save your soul. Stop worshipping the creature and start worshipping and praising the Creator. Individually we must develop a personal and daily relationship with Jesus the Son and God the Father, then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide. Remember the Word says, the ONLY way to the Father is through the Son!

Study the Word of God for yourselves it will enlighten you to what is and what isn’t lining up with God’s Word in churches today. Unfortunately a lot of what is taking place in today’s churches isn’t lining up with God’s Word. No matter what or who, the journey is an individual journey. We all must individually stand before God for ourselves, no one can do it for us!

It’s Unbelievable to the Unbeliever

Standard

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say “no one is that holy.” I think it’s a sad shame I hear this from the mouth’s of people who call themselves God’s children. The ONLY reason so called believers would say something so foolish is because they are really unbelievers. They “profess with their mouth’s but their hearts are far from the Lord.” They say all of the right things, but they are “putting on a form of Godliness, but denying the power thereof.” They are fake Saints. People must stop pretending for man, because man has to stand before God! If you’re going to live HOLY then live HOLY, stop fronting, because it’s going to get you a for sure seat in hell.

If people don’t stop playing with the Son of God and God the Father they will be turned over to reprobate minds. This basically means God has given a person up to self; your will, your way; to continue to do what you want to do. While He gives chances to get it right, people need to take heed. Being turned over to a reprobate mind is an awful thing and the consequence is death if a person doesn’t change their ways and get right with God.

People can choose to live right if they want too. Those who have turned away never was really connected the way they claimed to be. This is why there will be a “great falling away” of so called God’s children. These people will be easily deceived. It’s the devil’s business to get us all off course if he could. He wants to destroy us all in ways he hopes keeps people from choosing Jesus. He makes things look good those things are nothing but death and damnation.

Your heart being in the right place, doesn’t mean you’re doing right! Everyday people do good for a form of show, but they don’t mean for one second what they do. It’s all a form of show and performance for the eyes of man to see. What about what God sees?

Everyday people say God knows my heart, they are EXACTLY right. He does and no matter how people pretend He knows they are FAKE! He sees through those smoke screens. Forms of Godliness will not get it! It’s like an old gospel song says ninety-nine and a half won’t do!

My experience has been when you give so called people of God a message about Jesus they have an attitude, they get offended, they’re mad, they talk about you, they are afraid to speak up, they say no one is that holy, they say you’re judging, they say no one is perfect, and a host of other things. I will tell you why. It is because these so called Saints are not who they pretend to be; period!! They talk it, but they sure don’t walk it! They’ve played church for so long they’ve become replications of True Saints. They’ve learned the behaviors and actions of True Saints and now are able to mimic them. Silly, God knows the truth!!!

People who don’t believe they can live a holy life are NOT true believers. No way they can be real in their walk. People who are real in their walk, they aren’t just hearers of the Word they are doers. They live to please Jesus for real; it’s not a game to them, because they know playing with God leads to destruction.

To live holy becomes a lifestyle, it becomes second nature. People who don’t believe are so called Saint’s who can’t fathom the thought; living holy is possible. It is possible!! People don’t want to give up their ways or this world. They don’t want to stop putting everything before God. Why??? It’s because they don’t REALLY believe! You simply can’t act the way you used to act, do the things you used to do, go the places you used to go, speak the way you used to speak, even dress the way you used to dress(many don’t want to believe they need to dress differently, women still want their dresses up their butts, boobs out, and skin tight clothes, but if you’re really changed your hearts will be convicted when wearing that type of attire); and be a new creature. No way on earth! People want to mesh everything together making excuses as to why they are doing what they do. An excuse is all it is! I didn’t say be separated, Jesus did! You can’t intertwine walking with Jesus and the world in no shape, form, or fashion.

Everything about a person changes when they become a doer of the Word of God. Nothing is the same, because true Saints know they aren’t their own, they belong to God. They are new creatures living for Jesus the Son and God the Father. So to those of you who are continuing to make excuses, one day you won’t have a chance to utter another excuse.

Thin but Distinctive Line Between Evil and Mental

Standard

Listen people please trust and believe, if you’re fixated on particular thoughts and they are constantly in your head YOU HAVE GIVEN POWER TO THEM! No matter what they are, if they are constantly swirling around in your head it means you’re pondering over them. All thoughts aren’t bad, this post is about the bad/negative thoughts.

If it’s wrong YOU KNOW IT’S WRONG! Please, please, please check yourself! Please re-evaluate your ways of thinking. If you are fixated on the thoughts and they dictate your actions then you are possessed by this negativity. It will consume you and cause you to commit and submit to doing something you know is wrong.

There is so much going on in this world. People are doing foolish things every second of the day. Some days it seems as if people in the world have gone completely mad. God reminds me there is a difference between a person being mental and a person being possessed by evil! The world don’t want to deal with evil, because people are afraid to admit it exists. People are accepting when it comes to movies, but they don’t REALLY believe it’s real!

People who can’t get over bad thoughts are possessed by something not of God. God is love and He doesn’t dwell in darkness at all. He is the light in the darkness if people believe! If not they are consumed by their darkness! If something causes a person do anything wrong they are inhabited by something evil. It has consumed their thoughts, because the person has opened the door for it to come into their life in some form or another. A person’s thoughts fuels their feelings and behaviors.

Think about this:

Guns have handles, but no hands, and bullets have no eyes. The gun will lie wherever you laid it down until you pick it up. People must think about what they’re doing and STOP just doing! If there’s a thought in your head telling you to harm someone it is a BAD thought! If it’s something you’ve been thinking about go get HELP! Talk to someone about what’s bothering you! If you can’t let it go evil has entered your body through freewill and it is controlling you. Please seek help before you do something you can’t undo! This is the same for ANY weapon!

Alcohol and drugs can’t miraculously pour into a person’s body. People pick it up and induce it in some form or another. It’s done by free will. If it controls you it possesses you! It has consumed you. It is evil which has taken over your body of free will. In some way you have subjected yourself to it and it has caused you to submit to it! It is your god!

Lusts of the flesh comes in all forms. Most people think it means only sex, no this is incorrect. Sex is one form of lusts of the flesh. However, it also involves a plethora of other things; which by the way are ALL a form of evil. People don’t want to accept it, but it’s true. People entertain demons everyday without a second thought. They don’t realize the magnitude of what they are doing or the implications of their behaviors.

In case you don’t understand lusts of the flesh. It includes ALL sexual indulgences (sexual immorality of many forms such as fornication, adultery, bestiality, pedophilia, sodomy, homosexuality, etc), food addiction, alcohol & drug addictions, idolatry (people, objects, other things), greed (money, material things), I hope you get the understanding I’m trying to relay in this message!

Absolutely ANYTHING which has control over you is a form of possession. If you let the devil in he will come in and take over! People are walking around possessed and they are succumbing left and right without a fight. The devil is rejoicing over all of his angels building up his army.

It’s real! This is why people are committing such hideous acts! It’s pure evil controlling the minds and hearts of people in this world. This is why the world has so many people filled with hate. It’s darkness from evil!

People are suicidal and homicidal day in and day out! Their minds and hearts are controlled by evil. I know people will be upset over me adding suicide in it. You think you’re the only one been hurt by suicide? I have too! Again, anything that controls your thoughts consumes and control you. Would you categorize it as something good? No it’s negative! It’s a form of evil possession which has taken control. The devil wants to kill your body, mind, and soul. He wants to steal your lives, because he knows he HAS to go back to hell, therefore he wants to take as many with him as he can. He wants to destroy the hearts and minds of as many people as he can.

Suicidal and homicidal people aren’t born like that! They develop the tendencies and behaviors either through traumatic events they experienced or things they’ve seen others do. They develop certain mindsets through things they have been a part of whether willfully or forced upon them. It forms into something dark! It consumes and takes over the minds of many.

What baffles me is this; Society is quick to say someone is mentally instable. Ask yourself an honest question. Have you EVER seen a mentally unstable person? If you have you can CLEARLY tell they are incapable of the mental capacity to devise elaborate plans to harm people. Their minds don’t even work that way! Those who do are inflicted by evil, period! There is a thin but DESTINTIVE line between mental and evil.

Evil inhabits people through many different ways. It enters by the freewill of people. People welcome it in somehow by the lives they lead (thoughts-beliefs, feelings, behaviors (sex, drugs, alcohol, anger, fear, anxiety). When people are dealing with issues of their pasts and they can’t seem to move on, they are inhabited by this darkness which can lead people down dark paths into the unimaginable and unthinkable.

I’ve deal with many who have committed suicide and or homicide. I’ve dealt with many who can’t move on from issues of their pasts. You name it, I’ve probably dealt with it. This is why I know what I’m writing about. It happens to different people, but all of the hosts deals with the same types of things.

It can happen to anyone, even you and I if we don’t keep our minds and hearts on Jesus. The devil is on a mission.

Fixated on what you Got, Instead of What got you

Standard

This very thing will land many into lake of brimstone and fire (HELL). People are too worried about what they have or what they can get. Their thoughts and passions are for what they can accomplish, acquire, or obtain. People are lost in their desires to gain all the possessions the world has to offer. Some will do it at any or all cost. Realization is you gain the world, but the price will be to lose your souls.

People are into how big their homes are, how much money in their accounts, or the cars they drive. If they don’t have their own, they will connect with people to get out of them what they can. They are willing to step on toes, feet, and even heads to get what they want. They will stab you in the back and then steal someone else’s knife and stab you with that one too!

They are liars, false prophets, hearers of the Word only, fake Saints, deceivers, wolves in sheep’s clothing, Jezebel spirits, and you name it! All they care about is the association of Jesus the Son and God the Father by name and name alone. They have forms of Godliness denying the power thereof. They have studied and therefore have learned to mimic the behaviors and actions of true Saints.

Most are working diligently towards material prosperity and NOT spiritual prosperity. They want to be big shots! They are vain and puffed up by people. They love to hear people chant their names. They speak in inaudible fake tongues, even God Himself can’t understand the foolishness from their lips. They pretend to live Holy, yet they are double-minded.

You know who you are, you know what you are, and you know to whom you truly belong. You may deceive some people, but you’re not deceiving them all and you’re certainly NOT deceiving Jesus the Son or God the Father! You will find yourselves on roller skates and a slippery road straight into the pit of hell. Don’t get caught living this way when the Master comes. He’s coming like a thief in the night!

The Bible says people will love the world more than they love God. It is definitely true! People are so focused on what they got and not on what got them! Some will kill, steal, or destroy others to get it (with no remorse or shame). They are possessed by their desires of this world. Anything having control over you possesses you! If you love it more than God; it is your god!

People need to understand with no doubt once you leave this world you can’t take NOTHING with you. Concerns should be of eternal life with the King. If not your eternal life will be with whom you chose; your master Satan! As I’ve said and written before, Satan can’t put a person in hell, people choose it freely.

The choice is always yours to make, but remember your choice will make the difference between life and death! Make the right one, before it’s too late!
