It’s not Love, it’s You

Standard

I posted about love being blind a year or so ago, I am readdressing this today. Despite what many believe love is NOT blind! Love is kind, patience, good, beautiful, and it is a word that describes emotions and feelings. A million people may have a million different descriptions for love, however it is only pure and good! God is love therefore it’s nothing but good! It is NOT what a lot of people think it is or claim it to be. One thing for certain it’s NOT blind! People who think they are in love are the one’s who are blind. They are blind by their emotions and feelings.

I don’t care how young or old many people are still led by their emotions and because of it they make horrible decisions and choices. Yes, due to different upbringings, environments, etc it can affect the way people think, perceive, feel, and act. However, ultimately as adults we can continue the same or choose to change.

People have many issues they haven’t faced or resolved, then they turn around and couple it with someone who also have their barrel of issues. They end up in chaotic relationships. They are either used or they are the users. They are controlled or they are the one’s who are controlling. They are abused or they are the abusers. They are manipulated or they are the manipulators. What I’m boiling it all down to is they have this negative load they transfer from relationship to relationship. They seem to continue to go in and out of relationships with the same type of people. They haven’t figured out that although the person they are with may undoubtedly have issues, they have a host of their own as well.

When a person is led by the flesh it is always for some form of self gratification. They will go to the extreme to get it. When it comes to their relationships these individuals are moved by what they are feeling and it clouds their judgment. No matter how bad their situations really are they can’t see the truth, because they are blind by their feelings and emotions. People around them can see, but the individuals who are involved can’t see the truth. People ONLY wake up when it’s so bad something has to give, they then begin to clear the fog. Unfortunately some never see through the fog!

These types of people have many insecurities. I’m speaking beyond the normal insecurities a person may have. I think we all have something, but not to the point of it affecting us. People who have issues they haven’t resolved or learned to cope with the affects of those issues allow their insecurities to wreak havoc in their lives. They are individuals who lean and depend on others for happiness. They seek love in all of the wrong ways, people, and oftentimes places. They need someone to make them feel validated. When they are in relationships they either love too hard too quick or their trust and insecurities causes other problems for them and their relationships.

The best recommendation I can give a person is to look inward at self. People can’t put the blame on no one, who we are lies with us. I know there are many avenues and experiences to get us to where we are, but individually we have
to take responsibility for who we choose to be. If people step back and look clearly at their situations they will see the truth. If people continue to be led by how they feel they will continue be led into places they really don’t want to be. People treat you EXACTLY how you allow them to treat you, they won’t change how they treat you until you change how you allow them to treat you! Get it!!

If people stop being obsessed by their feelings they can see clearly. People must first love self and when they do how they see things change. People who love self matures to a new level of understanding. They know they don’t need a woman or are a man to validate them and they embrace if they have to be alone until the right one comes along. They’re no longer interested in Mr. or Ms. Right now! They learn good looks don’t get it, money doesn’t get it, status doesn’t get, or any of those things. They will understand what they want may NOT be what they need!

Always look at your situation and never settle for one way love, because in truth it’s no love at all!

Stop Trying to Make God What He Isn’t

Standard

Many people try to label Jesus everything other than what and who He really is to us. Jesus is the Son of God who was given to us by God the Father. He was God’s only begotten Son who died for our sins. He’s everything! He’s love, peace, and joy! He died for our sins so we don’t have to die, but unfortunately many are still on a road of death and damnation due to their choices.

There are many who try to make Him things He is not and has no part in or of. People want to do everything they want to do even when it’s wrong and still claim they are living for the Lord. He’s the Author of Peace not drama, chaos, or confusion. He’s love NOT hate, hate has no part of Him. He’s peace and joy NOT unhappiness, worry, doubt, etc. He’s everything that’s good and holy and acceptable to the Father. He’s not the many things some of us try to make Him to be to appease self.

In these days and times people want to label Jesus as things He’s simply not! They do things and throw the name Jesus in it and think by this it makes it right. Not so! People want to do any and everything out of order, yet they think by putting the name Jesus in the mix it gives them a pass. Not so! People think it’s okay to do whatever they want and then add a little Jesus in it to make it valid. It does not!

In my opinion it’s because people don’t want to give up their ways or the ways of this world. They want to pick and choose what they to consider as holy and righteous. They act this way in front of one person, that way in front of another, and so on. As I’ve written and said many times before this will get a person nowhere, but a ticket to hell.

If a person is going to be a true Saint of God, be a Saint. It’s either that or the other choice, those are the ONLY two options. The sometimes Saint won’t EVER get you into the “Glory land!” The sad part is if people die while they are in the midst of being “lukewarm” hell will be their eternal home.

One thing for sure is as true Saints we must keep our hearts and minds stayed on Jesus. We must walk daily by faith and NOT by sight! We must without a doubt believe Jesus is who He say He is and that He is the Son of God. We must decrease so He can increase in us. Until a person completely surrenders there is no place in Heaven for them! It sounds harsh, but it’s better to sound harsh now, receive it and change; then to die and live the realization of hell.

When Someone Talks About You

Standard

When someone talks about you what they say can’t hurt you unless you choose for it to hurt you. The old saying is really true “hurt people hurt people.” People who always having something negative to say are negative people. They are filled with old issues they’ve carried around for a life time. They’ve allowed the bitterness to build and fester inside. The only way they’ve learned to cope is by lashing out at other people.

You can’t please negative people. To them you’re never good enough no matter how good you are. This is why I’m always encouraging people to stand on their own and believe in self. Some of the people who should be the most influential are those we love the most. Unfortunately they are often the ones who tries to hurt us the most.

Words can hurt if we allow. A physical wound heals and sometimes the scar goes completely away and is often forgotten. However, those ugly words can get in deep inside of us and lie dormant. People hold on to them as if there’s a benefit to holding on to the negativity. Don’t be this person! It doesn’t matter what was said, you’re not who they say you are UNLESS you believe it. If you believe it this normally means you already have other things inside which has caused you to lose self confidence and self esteem. It also means somewhere along the way you’ve given away your power. If you give it people will most definitely take it!

I’m very selective about who I allow in my life. I’m very selective about who I call my friend. I have studied people for many years and I know they will look you in the face and smile, but they will stabbed you in the back. I know people will say they love you when they know they don’t. I know they can’t stand you for who you are and they will do or say anything to bring you down. I know they will say negative things about you in trying to break you. I know they are offended when you are different from them. The list goes on and on and on. None of it matters! What matters is what you think of yourself!

Never ever give anyone the power to bring you down because of the words they’ve spoken to you or about you. If you do they’ll do it every chance they get, because they know it hurts you. Know your value and self worth; when you do what others think of you means a whole lot less.

Always remember people (regardless of who they may be) who intentionally hurt you are hurt people who have unresolved issues. This doesn’t mean what they do is okay, just approach it a different way and do not let it cause a rip in your soul. Be blessed and know you’re uniquely you and don’t let anyone else make you feel otherwise!

Standing on Your own Oftentimes Means Standing Alone

Standard

I wanted to encourage someone this morning who may be going through their moments of feeling alone. I realize for some it seems like a lifetime, but I’m here to tell you you’re not alone, there are many people who feel like you. I’ve been there myself time and time again. However, for me I know who stands with me through it all. I know to the natural eye I look alone and if a person is caught up in that, they will feel alone. I know I’m never alone because spiritually I’m always surrounded my God’s love. I know the Holy Spirit is there as my comforter and my guide. It’s hard for a lot of people to comprehend and really I don’t expect them too, especially if they aren’t on that type of spiritual level.

Remember, no matter what you’re going through do NOT lean to your own understanding. No matter what it look or feel like do NOT lean to your own understanding. Trust Jesus to be exactly who He say He is, and when the going gets tough; keep right on praying, trusting, and believing! We wasn’t put on this earth to have a peaches and cream day everyday. We are going to have some hard times. During those times hold fast and strong to your faith in God and in yourself!

I’ve been different all of my life, I’ve felt an outcast all of my life in many situations to include work, church, family, and friends. I love all people, but all people don’t love me. I honestly don’t care who it is I have NEVER ever allowed it to hinder me or cause me any form of stagnation. I haven’t always been as close to Jesus the Son and God the Father as I am now, but even when I wasn’t and was too immature to know it; He had me covered! He kept me time and time again! Through my darkness times, He was there for me, loving me, and keeping me strong EVEN when I didn’t know it was Him.

If I was the type of person who relied on others for my joy, peace, and happiness I would have given up a long time ago. Thank God Almighty He made me the way He did. I thank Him for given me wisdom, knowledge, and understanding even when I didn’t know what it was He had given me. I only sensed being different.

I’ve been around people from all walks of life both in country and out of country, yet I’ve never been one to conform to others to be a part of the group. If you like me fine, if you don’t fine. I don’t give anyone or anything the power to cause me pain and suffering. I know exactly how to let go and let God work it out for me. Trust and believe I’ve gone through enough to be angry and full of pain, but thank God Almighty at an early age I had this something inside of me that kept and made me strong.

To anyone who may need this on today, stand tall and know that NO MATTER what you’re going through you’re NEVER alone. If being alone is what you’re focused on and if it’s what’s always on your mind you will most definitely begin to feel some kind of negative way about it. It will cause other issues for you, issues you don’t need.

I think it’s VERY important people do not lean and depend on others to a point of breakdown if the support isn’t there. Individually we must learn to stand on our own and believe in self. There will be many let downs by others. There will be many days we aren’t supported by others. If we don’t allow others to dictate our happiness, joy, peace, then they certainly can’t take it from us!! Stand, EVEN IF IT SEEMS YOU’RE STANDING ALONE!

Mixing and Mingling

Standard

I know lately I’ve been writing a lot about choosing death or hell as our eternal home. The reason I am constantly writing about this is because it is a personal choice and many people freely are choosing their eternal home as hell. No one has to make this choice yet millions are when they choose NOT to stop doing what they are doing.

As always many of my posts are about people who are professing to be true Saints of Gods and those who really are. If you don’t believe it is your choice, I’m really not here to convince anyone otherwise. I’m only trying to remind people of the way to the Father is through the Son. Those who are sincere in their walks understands the many posts I’ve been writing, because as a Saint of God it is our duty to keep trying to reach as many people who will receive. It is our duty to play our parts.

My greatest sorrow is to know people are losing their souls to gain the world when it has nothing to offer other than death. I know it seems fun and full of glitz and glamour, but at the end of the road there isn’t a rainbow; instead death awaits. Everyone chose what they choose, but most don’t understand the detrimental consequences of their choices. I’m not trying to frightened anyone, I’m simply telling you the truth according to the Word of God.

People constantly talk of being judged and of not being perfect, yet in the end neither will be used as a get out of hell free card. No sir, no madam; it doesn’t work that way. Every opportunity we get to live is another beautiful day to choose eternal life!

As true Saints of God we unequivocally can’t mix and mingle with the ways of the world and think it’s okay, it is NOT! The Bible tells us we must separate ourselves. All of this bringing the world into the churches of today to reach youngsters is a crock of lies! You talking about excuses that’s all it is, no way in the world is the mess going on in churches today alright or right period!! People are falling for any and everything, because they aren’t standing for nothing! They are as I always say; like leaves in the wind. They go with whatever sounds or feels right to them at the time.

There is so much mess in churches today, people aren’t understanding, because instead of seeking understanding they are too busy being a part of the mess going on! They would rather be a party to the mess rather than to stand against it. This is why it’s very important people read, know, understand, and live by the Word of God for self! People aren’t getting what they need in churches today, because too many of the churches have brought the world to their sanctuaries. People aren’t seeing any difference between the world and the churches. This isn’t the will of God. Jesus doesn’t conform to the ways of the world or to people. We are to conform to Jesus and His ways! No matter how much people proclaim Jesus or put His name to a song, in their sermons, etc, if you’re doing things against Him, then you’re against the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit!

I don’t care how double minded a person is ANY day someone gets to see is a day to straighten up and get it right! If they continue to do what they do, they may very well lose their soul. This would be very sad!

We must be different, no way on this earth can we choose Jesus and live for Him yet be the same! No way, it’s impossible! We should become peculiar people, because we are supposed to be new creatures. When people willfully want to mix and mingle with the world it’s clear they aren’t sincere in their walk. They are strong in their talk, but weak in their walk! I don’t care how much they proclaim to be sincere they aren’t. People must want to change, when a person really wants to change they will. When a person really changes, their ways will change. Once you’re truly living for Jesus you don’t want any parts of the world any longer. If you do you must check yourself!!

Please stop playing games with your lives before it’s too late!!

To be a new Creature you Must let Things go

Standard

There is absolutely no way around it. To become new in Christ, you must be willing to give up this world. The first step is accepting Jesus as your personal Savior (Romans 10:9), then you must seek Him in all you do and allow the Holy Spirit to lead so you can grow. We must seek after Him day and night. Our minds and hearts must be renewed daily.

Many people want to profess and proclaim they are about Jesus the Son and God the Father. However, their walk tells the whole truth. No one and I do mean no one can serve both Jesus and the adversary, the devil. The problem is many are trying to do this very thing! They turn on their holiness when they know certain people are watching or when they’re around certain people (church, etc), yet outside of it they live any kind of way. They still party, curse like they know no other way to speak, addicted to all kinds of sins of the flesh (sex, drugs, alcohols, etc), fornicating, committing adultery, killing, stealing, etc. They do all of these things and a host of others. Yet they pretend to be in love with Jesus. According to the Word of God, it’s impossible to love Him if you’re doing these things!

When you’re truly in love with Jesus you will live what you profess. Everyday of a person’s life, if they love Jesus they will strive daily to walk in holiness. It’s not about us, it’s all about allowing the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us in the way we should go. It’s all about submitting and committing to Jesus.

Those of us who are truly living for Jesus Christ become new creatures. Everything about us changes. When the devil try to attack we know through the Holy Spirit how to stand firm and tall against his tricks. We get flashes of our pasts even though we are forgiven. I believe it’s a reminder of what we came from and not to go back to. We get thoughts, but we know any thought against the flesh is against Jesus the Son, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit, therefore we quickly put away any foolishness.

I say these things because we are still flesh and bone. If I say nothing ever rises against our flesh, I would be lying. It does, but the difference is as a true Saint of God we dismiss those things. We do not fall subject to those things. Although we are human flesh and bones in this natural body, we have to walk with and in the Spirit, there’s no other way we can make it. Living for Jesus is as easy as anything else. The deeper you go, the stronger and more powerful you become. Jesus gave us power to do things, we must believe it and activate the power within us through the Holy Spirit. This walk isn’t something you pick up and put down at will. You must walk it every single day, all day. Your mind and heart must be about the business of Jesus the Son and God the Father.

We can’t be double minded, because there is no place in God’s Kingdom for double minded people. We must give up our old ways and become new in all of our ways. This sometimes mean letting go of certain people in our lives. I’m not saying we don’t love, but I am saying, if they choose the world, we can’t put ourselves in predicaments causing us to falter or fall. Therefore we have to let them go so they don’t put stumbling blocks and obstacles in our way.

As true Saints of God, the irrefutable truth is we must let go the things of the world. In these times people will love the world more than they do God. The Bible says we shouldn’t love the things of the world. This is why it’s so hard for people to submit and commit to Jesus. They are lovers of this world. No matter if the consequences are death, many still choose the ways of the world. Honestly, my belief is if people TRULY believed they would choose Jesus. They wouldn’t play or pretend, they would undoubtedly choose Jesus. If they really believed in Heaven and hell, they would choose Jesus.

It’s all about choices, people will choose what they love the most. No matter in their minds if they believe they love Jesus, if they flip flop, then they DON’T really love Jesus. Don’t be mad at me, be mad at yourself for your choices. I didn’t make it up, it’s in the Word. You’re either for Him or against Him, there’s no in between. There’s no I’m for Him today, but later on this afternoon, I’m doing me. No it doesn’t work this way. This is a flip flopper, a double minded person. Bottom line, these types of people don’t REALLY love Jesus and they certainly aren’t living for Him. I’m not trying to judge anyone, I’m trying to help people with the unadulterated truth. Time out for watering down and sugarcoating!

Something I saw on social media yesterday I want to write about. There was a picture of people in church and then a picture of people doing other things. The caption said; it’s going to be something when the ones you think will be in Heaven will be in hell and those you think will be in Hell will be in Heaven. This is my opinion; man is looking through the natural eye. They see what people portray to them and they take it as gospel. Although a person may sit in church Sunday after Sunday, may be some form of a church leader, or whatever they claim, etc, etc, it means absolutely nothing. They may or may not living the life. They know if they are and they know if they aren’t; it isn’t a surprise to them. Those who truly are living according to God’s Word will make it others will not. Acting Holy and living true Holiness are two different things. Those who were doing worldly things (whether they go to church or not), will absolutely go to hell IF they do not change their ways. The choice is ours to make, point blank, and the end!!!
