If You Loved Jesus As Much As Everything Else

Standard

We’ve all been guilty. I have mentioned it in previous post I am a gospel singer/songwriter and I love it beyond words. I grew up singing from the age of 11, I’ve been around top notch national artist. I’ve enjoyed singing on the same stages with them all over the place. God knows my passion for it, but my passion for Him exceedingly and abundantly outweighs my passion for it.

I’ve learned in my life particularly in the past going on 9 years to lean and depend completely on Jesus. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t worship or idolize nothing or no one. I know I am “plain Jane” to most. I have no favorite anything. There are things I like, but the line between enjoying those things and worshipping those things is great. I worship nothing or no one, other than the Father. He’s my everything and my all and all. I am rooted and grounded in my faith. I live what I teach and preach. I don’t waver with the way of the world.

Too many people profess Him with their lips yet their hearts are far from Him (straight from the Word). It is so true! These same people profess to live for Him (lies). I’m not trying to judge, I’m only telling the truth.

If a person really love God, then He would be first in their life and it will be reflected in how they live. Instead of getting right and for real with Jesus many are trying to hide what they are really doing. They think what they are doing is hidden or is a secret. Well nothing is a secret to the Father. He knows and sees all we do. He said all things done in the dark will come to the light. It’s no lie people!

If people loved Jesus and our Father God the way they love everything else oh what a beautiful world this would be. People are too busy trying to showboat and pretend until they don’t understand they are on the road to hell.

People are so focused on worshipping other people who by the way aren’t exempt from the same problems in life as you, (love, pain, suffering, all kinds of other troubles) and they aren’t exempt from dying. Yet many of the same people claiming to love Jesus are idolizing people and many other things.

People spend millions on sports teams, they are die hard fans. Yet, they don’t show near the passion for Jesus. They pick Him up and put Him down when it’s convenient for them.

People will go to the ends of the earth to seek love, when most times what they receive; has NOTHING to do with love.

God is being mocked on every hand. In today’s society it seems the norm to mock God, but let me tell you He’s a God that shall not be mocked. People who are doing it will be greatly rewarded. Yes rewarded, because they will received something in return for the wrong they’re doing.

As I’ve always said; this world has nothing to offer but death; that’s it! People who are ONLY claiming Jesus don’t want to let go of this world. They still want to do what they do, act how they act, talk how they want, etc; when none of it is a representation of Jesus. A bunch of “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” However, no matter the disguise; you can’t fool Jesus! You can’t fool God; you’re only fooling yourself. Fooling yourselves into believing #1 that you’re smart enough to fool God and #2 that the world has something better to offer you then God and His Son Jesus.

God has no respectable person and neither does the devil. God wishes for none of us to perish, while the devil is trying to kill us all. God’s love for us is unconditional, but the devil knows nothing about love (he’s here to kill, steal, and destroy). God cleans you up from the inside out, but the devil only polishes the outside making a person appear to be something he or she is not. Sill people would rather profess Jesus but live for the devil. They are choosing to “gain the whole world and lose their souls” because if you’re not truly for Him (all the way), then you’re against Him.

Loving Jesus completely is to put Him first and not put anything or anyone before Him. If people would put in the effort and time to love Jesus and want to be a part of Him like they do the world and all of its ways what a wonderful world it would be.

Ye of Little or No Faith

Standard

Life isn’t meant to be a bed of roses. We have to take the good with the bad. We won’t always have it good; we will have tragedies, we will have storms. During those times we can’t blame God. God is there through it all (good and the bad). We will ALL have good days and bad days. We will ALL have bad things happen to us, but God is still standing by. He won’t EVER leave or forsake us. It is people who abandon God.

People rack my nerves when they want to blame God for bad things. Nothing is hunky-dory all of the time. Life is full of up’s and downs. It is full of good and bad. In the lives of many they have nothing to say when all is going well, but as soon as they hit that bump in the road, they want to blame God. They want to say “where was God.” I ask “where you seeking Him through your good times? If you have a real relationship with God then you know He’s right there through it all (good or bad).

People have tight lips when the sun is shining, but soon as their storms come they want to blame God. Many have lost faith or never had it in the first place. When troubles come it’s not the time to abandon ship, it’s the time to raise your sail and weather the storm. Too many who claim to be strong in faith or in fact faithless. They are easily deterred and persuaded. God needs warriors who will stand the test of times, not people who questions who He is or where He is.

I’ve seen people who claim to be strong in their faith withdraw from everyone to include God when they are going through. These are faithless people who are only speaking faith from their lips but not walking in it. The Bible says “for faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not see.” You have to believe it in order to receive it.

Those who talk the talk, but can’t walk the walk are the ones who are saying one thing, but doing another. They are like flower pedals in the wind, they blow whichever way the wind is blowing on any particular day; they have no roots. They conform to the world and they are easily brainwashed. Since they only claim to stand for Jesus they are subject to fall for anything.

To live for God and His Son Jesus is the best choice anyone can make. While living for Jesus on this earth there is a constant battle between good and evil. The devil is doing his job which is to kill, steal, and destroy as many as possible. We have to stay prayed up and watchful. We must understand that trials and tribulations will come, but they won’t last always.

Think about what they did to Jesus; they did everything to Him, but He stayed on the cross. God could have NOT given us His ONLY begotten Son, but He did. There was good and evil back then, I don’t know why people think there shouldn’t be any nowadays. God’s initial intention was for it all to be good, but we know the story of the Garden of Eden and what happened there. Eating from the tree of knowledge open our eyes to everything and because of it, we will forever experience trials and tribulations (good, bad, evil).

In these days and times, we must be anchored. There is always going to be things that happens to us, but we should stand on the Word of God and thank God as we endure our storms. Always pray that even though we must go through our storms that God keeps us as we endure them. It’s time people walk what they talk and stand on the Word of God. Stop blaming Him when you’re going through or questioning His existence when you’re going through. If you’re in the Word and spending time with Him on a daily basis, you should know He won’t EVER leave or forsake you, me, us!

If You Claim Jesus, Live It

Standard

This post is for those who CLAIM to believe in God and His Son Jesus. The day we were born we begin to die. Some act as if they are going to live forever here on this earth. You’re not! People claim to be on the Lord’s (Jesus) side, but their walk is totally different from their talk. People like this are only fooling the person staring back at them in the mirror.

In the Bible God said “I rather you be hot or cold, if you’re lukewarm I will spew you from my mouth.” Time is out for playing! Look around at what’s going on in this world today. People are killing like it’s nothing, mother’s against daughters, fathers against sons. People are doing whatever they want to do. They are worried about being caught by man, while Jesus sees it all. For those who are claiming one thing from their lips but are living another, one day you will no longer have an opportunity to choose.

You’ve seen me write straddling the fence many times, but in reality there is NO straddling the fence, you’re either for Him or you’re against Him. People can continue to live their lives for man, not understanding that man has to bow too. In the Word, God says “every knee shall bow.” It didn’t say a few or some; it says EVERY knee shall bow.

While we yet live, we live according to what we believe. If you say you believe but live something else  you’re a liar and you’re straddling the fence. You may claim Him, but how you live tells the truth. I’m not talking about how you portray yourself to the world, because most already know that’s pretense. I’m talking about how you live when no one sees you. God always sees you. Anything against Him is not pleasing to His sight. People are more worried about pleasing man. They are still in the world doing worldly things. They look, talk, dress, act, and think worldly. They only give reference to God on Sundays as if that will get them into Heaven. By doing this you’re choosing a side even without knowing it. If you’re NOT for Him, you’re AGAINST Him; point blank!

We are created to live forever! If a person die in their sins when they die they are dead; meaning they have lost the opportunity for eternal life with the Father. They chose the road of eternal damnation.  It’s the life they chose to live forever, because they chose their god (the devil) while they were alive. It’s ALL a personal choice. People can shuck, jive, dip, dodge, fake, pretend, and play all the games they want, but there’s ONLY one way to the Father and that’s through the Son. If people think they can dip their feet on both sides; WRONG! In other words, what I am saying is by trying to play both sides, in reality you’re only playing yourself, because it’s either one OR the other. People are trying to play both sides of the fence, but by NOT submitting completely and living according to God’s Word, you’re automatically choosing the other.

There’s nothing hidden under the sun to the Son! God wishes for NONE of us to perish, but at the end of the day the choice is personal. For those of you who know you’re not doing right. You know exactly what you’re doing, thinking, feeling, and how you’re acting. If you read the Word, then you know whether it’s pleasing to God and His Son Jesus. A person can be saved, but not living a Holy life.  However, the Bible says you must be Born AGAIN and you must live Holy. That’s the bottom line, the point, and the period! Stop playing with God, because He’s NOT playing with you! Stop playing Russian roulette with your life.

We see so many tragedies every single day we live, yet people still don’t want to do what they know is right. As I’ve said before, everything wrong, the world is trying to make right, and everything right the world is trying to make wrong. This is not the way of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

There are consequences to how we live. There is no way around it,  how we choose to live determines where we will spend eternity.

 

 

You Must Walk the Talk (For Real)

Standard

Okay, I am going to talk about something that I am tired of hearing people talk about. There are far too many (so called) Holy people who don’t believe the words coming from their own mouths. This is an issue for many, because they can’t fathom the thought of living holy due to their inability and willingness to do so.

I’m here to tell you as a living witness it’s possible. It’ not about being perfect, because to man you will never be good enough, but you can be to God. It’s about knowing that you know in your heart and soul that Jesus is pleased with what He hears and sees in you. Despite of what the world says about you. They will hate on you, talk about you, be jealous of you, envy you, and even hate you, because of their short comings.

People make choices for many different reasons. People lie and pretend for many different reasons. None of it matters, because at the end of the day; God the Father and His Son Jesus knows all of what you do, say, and think are secrets. None of what you do or say is unknown to God. No matter how you play church, shuck, and jive, you can’t fool God. God cleans up whom He calls. He Qualifies who He elects. That’s point blank! “Many are called, but few are chosen” that is straight from the Bible. The truth always show in people’s actions (whether said, done, or whatever).

I’ve told people over and over that if you want to keep living any kind of way go for it, but it’s NOT the way of the Lord. Our way isn’t His way! This may be a Burger King World, but He’s not a Burger King God. People can keep fooling themselves or they can make a conscious decision to get it right. There is only one way and that is through Jesus the Son and by living according to God’s word.

People are damming themselves every day because they’re trying to live their way when it’s against God’s word. People want to be associated or affiliated with God the Father and His Son Jesus through different titles and organizations, but they don’t want to live according to His Word.

There are people who are designated leaders who are doing everything under the sun against God’s teachings. There are people going to church faithfully as if that’s going to get them into Heaven. They go out of tradition, but as the Word says “their hearts are far from Him.” People are serving man and worshipping man. They are dedicated to man, but NOT God. They say they love Him, but the Word says “if you love Him, you will keep His Commandments.)

You can live a Holy life if you choose, but it has to be a commitment to God and His Son Jesus first and then to yourself. You MUST give up this ole nasty world. There is NO way around it. You must truly submit to God and know whom you are serving. You should pray for both the Fruits and the Gifts of the Spirit. With Discernment you will know false teachers, false preachers, and false worshippers as they present themselves. They are seeking whom they can devour (doing exactly what pleases the devil).

When you’ve given up and submitted to God giving up this ole world has no affect on you, because you know you will gain eternal life. The world will no longer look or feel the same. The devil will try you left and right, but the more you stand against him and call him out, he will begin to flee. There’s no doubt you will become a new creature. You won’t be the same, you can’t be the same. All of your old ways of doing things (talking, walking, dressing, thinking, feeling, etc) will change. If you’re still doing it the same way then you need to re-examine yourself, because something is wrong.

I’ve found that people don’t receive it, because they don’t believe it. They don’t believe it, because they’re NOT ready to get off of the fence pole and start living for God. They want to keep a foot in the world. This mentality won’t work! Many will lose their soul’s if they don’t get it together.

People still want to fornicate, commit adultery, worship other people and idols, conform to the world and it’s ways, they want to do everything they want to do when they know it’s against God’s Word. Yet they are leaders and teachers in the church. They are people sitting on the pews every Sunday claiming to be this when they know they are that! Leaders and teachers are people who supposed to be living by a standard and by example. These are the folks being worshipped, idolized, and followed. Blind leading the blind and it’s NOT God’s way!

People are comfortable, compliant, and content with mixing the world with the church. You can do this when you’re still in the world and it won’t bother you, but if you’re a true Saint, you’re not having it, because you know it’s NOT God’s way. God said specifically to separate ourselves, but people still want to mix and mingle.

You can say you love Him all day long, you can hoop and holler all day long, you can cry and sling snot all day long, but if you’re not living what you profess all you’re doing is putting on a show for man. That’s it!!! Like it or not, it’s the truth! Man has no Heaven or Hell to put you in. In fact man has to stand before God for his and herself.

If you read the Word you know He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. He’s Alpha and Omega, He’s everything! Yet, many choose the world and all of it’s glory (riches, fame, fortune). People build and lay all of their treasures up on earth. They seek fame and fortune, the glamour and the glitz. Nothing here on earth will last and when we die NONE of it is any good to us. If we gain the whole world we WILL lose our souls. I didn’t make it up, it’s in the Word.

It’s your choice what you decide, but know this one thing: time will run out for pretending to be this, when you know you’re that. When you turn it over to Jesus and you accept Him and live your life for Him, those who claim to love you sometimes will walk away. Let them walk! On this journey you have to stand on your own and alone. It’s no buddy system, you have to do it on your own.

If you know you’re sold out to God and His Son Jesus and without any apprehension you can face the man in the mirror and know you are living inside of your home what you profess to the world, then God is pleased with you. This is what it takes to live Holy. You must give up the world, you must die daily, you must be renewed daily. Every day you live you honor God for grace, mercy, and your life. You think God before you do or say anything. In the beginning it may seem hard, but if you’re sincere it becomes more doable; then it becomes a way of life.

There are plenty of people who claim to love me, but I know in their hearts they can’t stand to see me coming. I’m often times never included, but I honestly care less, it’s not about people, it’s about God and my relationship with Him. Some people straight hate on me, because I won’t do what they do. I have given up the ways of the world, I choose Jesus not sometimes when it’s convenient and for show, but all of the time 24/7 hours a day, 365 a year, because it’s necessary and the ONLY way I can live with a peace that surpasses all understanding!!!

I’ve gone through so much, I’ve seen and dealt with things most wouldn’t believe or could accept. I’ve been tried by the fire, yet I stand; and in my standing, if I hadn’t of gone through all I went through to get here today, my life would be different. I wouldn’t have made it through, but because I trusted in God and I cast my cares and my fears on Him, I made it through EVERY single time. It has made me much stronger. I work within the power God gave me and because I believe, I receive much strength. I know He’s real, I know what He can and will do if you allow. It’s possible to live Holy, but you must truly want it.

Many days you may want to throw in the tile, but then you remember troubles don’t last always and “joy cometh in the morning.” We have to learn to tarry and know He is EXACTLY who He says He is. That’s what I believe!!! I’m not trying to force it on anyone, I’m simply telling you about me. I’m telling you what I know. I don’t take the Word and try to twist it or manipulate it, I see it for what it is. Accept it or not! There is a price to be paid for taking from the Word and for adding to the Word, both are against the Word of God.

I want people to truly grasp the fact that there will be no get out of hell tickets passed out. There will be no excuses accepted, because you already have been given guidance. The time is now, tomorrow may never come! While people are trying to fake it, it’s blocking them from ever making it into the Kingdom.

GOD the Father and His Son Jesus and then others

Standard

I already know millions don’t want to hear about or read about God, but one day you will reminisce the many times you were told, but you chose to dismiss and it will be too late for many. God is real and He’s showing us in so many ways. People are seeing miracles that they still characterize as luck. People are seeing signs on top of signs in the skies, that they have no understanding of what it means or why. People are seeing many things that represents God and his existence, but fail to accept it as such.

The way of the world had changed so much. Things that are against God are accepted as right and things that are for God are accepted as wrong. God specifically said there must be a separation of the right from the wrong. Many don’t accept this because they want to continue to do what they do.

People don’t want to give up the wrong for the right. They don’t want to give up the nasty filthy ways of this world. Most importantly; they don’t believe in God, but they eagerly and wholeheartedly believe in gods.

I can’t save anyone and I have no heaven or hell to put you in, but it is my duty to tell you about God. It’s my duty to show you the way. If you believe and accept wonderful, but I can’t make you, the decision is yours to make of your free will.

In today’s world almost anything goes. We’re living in a Burger King world (have it your way). People are getting slapped on the hands for doing unthinkable things. The reason for this is because many who are making the decisions are also living the ways of the world. They are serving gods and some of them are worshipped as gods. Therefore, they think they’re above God.

People are so busy serving and worshipping man as if they’re God that they don’t have the time to receive God and His Son Jesus. They aren’t willing to accept someone they think they can’t see. They’re blind to the truth. God is real and He shows Himself to us everyday in some way. When God shows Himself people accept His work as everything other than it being the work of God.

What’s sad is that people flock to individuals who they think are holy, because they can see them in the flesh. They flock to the Pope, self made prophets from all over the world, etc..etc. I’m not disputing who they are, but what I know is they aren’t God the Father. These individuals are being worshipped and when they are those who worship them are choosing to worship other gods and NOT God the Father.

The people of this world are becoming more and more evil. The ways of the world is becoming more and more against God. People are going about their business as if there’s nothing going on. People don’t want to accept the truth about anything when it’s against what they think, feel, want, or believe. They can be in the lion’s den, but they will stay there because they want to do what they want to do and not what is best for them, people make these bad choices of free will. They don’t want to be told anything when they know it’s against the way they live their lives. They want to stay in the midst of their nasty ways committing fornication, adultery, immoral sex acts against one another – animals-children, idolizing people and things, serving false gods, and doing anything and everything against GOD and His WORD.

People are busybodies, they want this and that, they’re greedy for material things (money, shoes, clothes, cars, houses, , etc). They’re caught up in positions, titles, statuses, etc. They are addicted to sex, drugs, alcohol, food, etc. They idolize and completely worship other people who has status, etc. They’re so focused on following and worshipping other people that they don’t have lives of their own. These things and people are their gods. Unbeknown to people, these things will past away. People are building their treasures on earth when they should be preparing for their treasures in Heaven.

We haven’t seen anything yet, there are things to come that people will be so fearful their hearts will fail them when they see these things (it’s in the Word). Things are coming that people will not know how to handle nor will they be able to handle. People have turned against God, but this is because they never fully received Him, while others never accepted Him at all.

There is evil lurking at every corner, but society want to call it mental illness versus calling it what it is 98% of the time which is evil. A mentally ill person isn’t mentally capable to devise elaborate plans to kill people or commit certain acts, but evil people are. There are entities around us that we can’t see (dark powers) that are at work. We constantly struggle with mental warfare. People don’t want to believe in this, they accept the term mental illness. One reason the world isn’t on top of this, is because they’re not accepting that evil exist. I know some people know it does, but those who are in positions to give it a name don’t want to deal with other possibilities.

When you talk of evil and dark powers people want to run and hide. Hilarious isn’t it? People want to run and hide from something that seems fearful, yet they don’t understand God has power over all things. These things exist and God exist whether you want to believe it or not. Your disbelief does nothing but hinder you. This is why people are falling into these episodes the world calls mental illness, because they don’t believe in God or these dark powers. Unfortunately millions aren’t in tune with their own bodies and when they’re attacked they don’t know what’s going on. They simply submit and do the unthinkable.

I can go on forever on this but I won’t. I pray that you get on  God the Father and His Son Jesus’s side before it’s too late. You’ve tried EVERYTHING else, why not try Him? You trusted and believed in EVERYONE else, why not trust and believe in Him. “He may not come when you want Him or think that He should, but He’s always on time.” I am a living witness!

The ways of the world may look good, but I promise you it isn’t good for you. The choice is yours to make. I know many don’t like this post, but it’s okay. I know people and I understand that when it comes to things that are good for you many will reject it, because they don’t want to give up their old ways. I’m sorry for you and I can’t do anything but love you and continue to pray for you. I pray that you receive God before it’s too late.

WHERE WAS GOD

Standard

We’ve heard this question asked many times. What gets me is the fact that many of the people asking the question NEVER acknowledged God before tragedy struck. However, He’s the one they want to blame when it strikes. Their question is always “where was God?” Is this a fair question coming from people who don’t acknowledge Him? Is it a fair question coming from those who supposedly do acknowledge Him?

He’s there during all of our good times as well as the bad. God is still God; the one who sits high and looks down low. It baffles me when I hear so many people ask this question or when I hear people say they lost their faith, etc. Truth of the matter is you can’t lose something you never had. As people our faith can be tried, but if a person let go of their faith, it was never solid in the first place.

The ONLY trouble free people lie in the cemetery. They are no longer alive and apart of this world. For the rest of us, as long as we breathe we are sure to go in and out of the valleys of life. It’s all a part of life. It doesn’t mean God isn’t there or that He doesn’t care, because He is and He does.

If you believe in the Bible, then you know what changed and why there is both good and evil in this world. If you don’t I challenge you to at least read about it; starting with the first Book (Genesis), which wasn’t applicable to only Adam and Eve at that time, but to all generations to come. Trials and tribulations involves people, their behaviors, and the different tragedies we will at some point experience due to other things. How you perceive and accept any situation determines how you will go through it. It doesn’t matter how horrible it is.

God is there with us through all of our trials, but I personally believe one problem is that many say they believe, but their actions say otherwise. Think about it; if everyone who claimed to believe and love the Lord, truly believed and loved Him, they would lives their lives completely different and this world would be a better place. Unfortunately that’s not the case and in the midst of that there are nonbelievers. Too many are either living on both sides of the fence or they don’t believe at all.

We don’t only face tragedies, trials, and tribulations because of other people, but also due to unfortunate events (floods, earthquakes, etc). There will always be tragedies that happen to us for as long as we shall live, but God remains with us. Things happen that can shatter our lives, but God remains with us. Satan and his angels has their hands in many things. Satan oftentimes make things look good and other times bad. His job is to lie, manipulate, deceive, kill, steal, and destroy. His purpose is to roam the earth, seeking whom he can devour. We all deal with it. That’s just the way it is. Where our faith lies, our relationship with God and His Son Jesus; is what keeps us strong and able to endure our  storms. When people don’t have this, they lack the understanding as to why we have to deal with misfortune.

A lot of people flock to the church on Sunday, but live like hypocrites the rest of the week. Sadly this includes church Leaders and so on down the chain. Many don’t live as new creatures because they aren’t new creatures. It shows in their daily walk. When the connection is nonexistent or false; there’s no real understanding.

God yet lives, He loves each of us, and He’s right there all of the time. The many things we go through; we don’t have to go through alone nor do we have to allow them to break us down. God wants us to believe, have faith, and cast our cares on Him. You can’t do that if you don’t believe and you can’t do it if your profession is a lie!

Our lives weren’t meant to be trouble free. It would be wonderful if it was, but it isn’t. Trials come to make us strong, but sadly many people allow their trials to break them down.

How we go through anything is a personal decision. What we believe is a personal choice and how we live our lives is a personal choice. I pray that you allow God to heal your pains and that you’re no longer bitter or angry at God for things that has happened or will happen. No matter how it looks, He’s still in control.  No matter where we go or what we do, the world is full of good and evil. We will face something! God is right there waiting for us to lean and depend on Him.

WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

Standard

I already know a lot of people will be mad about this, but I don’t apologize for the truth. I also know you will say I’m judging and although it’s not true, say what you want. When a person tells the truth it will affect people. When people feel the sting of the truth they will feel some kind of way about it and oftentimes they will say they’re being judged. I’m not the judge, but it is my duty to spread the truth, like it or not. IF NOT; I’m charged just like everyone else.

What I’m seeing in many of the churches today is mockery and shame in the eyes of God. The things some leaders are doing today is not in line with God. They have brainwashed their flocks. People of today are poisoned by the words of man and not equipped or empowered by the WORD of God. They’re in church CLEARLY praising and worshipping their leaders.

There are leaders up in the pulpits cursing, sexing members of their congregation, preaching everything about the world, but aren’t teaching or preaching the true Word of God. Instead they’re preaching watered down versions of what they want the people to know. People are lost and confused for several reasons the main one is because they’re straddling the fence. Many aren’t even on the fence; going to church is like going to the movies or a sporting event. They go for entertainment and they go faithfully! Most go out of pure tradition. Those that are straddling the fence are straddled for one reason only. THEY DO NOT FULLY BELIEVE IN THE EXISTENCE OF GOD. If they did their lives would be different and they definitely wouldn’t be straddled the fence.

They’re lost and confused because they do not know God and His Son Jesus for themselves. They only know what they’ve heard. When this is the case, a person is liable to follow anyone and fall for anything. You must get to know Him for yourselves and get into a daily walk with Him (the Word, prayer, praise, and worship). If you don’t know Him for yourself the world always seems to look more enticing than what it is, but it’s the trick of the enemy. To give it up seems like a tragedy, but what people don’t understand is to NOT give it up WILL be a tragedy.

The world is shocked when they see and hear all of the foolishness leaders all over the world are doing. It’s not shocking to me, but it is sad. Not only sad because they’re leading the people astray, but because they’re mocking God and condemning their lives to hell IF they don’t make a change.

Today it’s about power and greed; leader’s are lead by the mighty dollar! Churches have ATM’s, café’s, bookstores, and other things inside of the church. It may be in the foyer, but it’s still inside of the building. Don’t leaders know this is wrong? God Himself turned over tables and made a big deal over it when He saw people selling etc in the temple.  These leaders are making it all about money. They’ve lost sight of the truth and their good intentions have fallen by the wayside. Well, let me back up. Some NEVER had the right intentions from the start; because for them it started out being about money.

This is why you see many leaders doing things unbecoming of a men and women of God. They’re leading their flocks, but they don’t even know who they are or to whom they serve. They’re just as blind and lost as their flocks. The Bible says “how can the blind lead the blind, lest they both fall into the ditch.”

I’m not saying none of us are perfect, but what I am saying is IF you are TRULY a new creature everything about you will change (your spiritual walk, talk, thoughts, overall presentation, dress, etc). Why, because your heart and mind will become on one accord. You will not be the same, you can’t be the same, and you wouldn’t want to be the same. Will temptations come, YES it will. It is the devil’s job and desire to lead God’s people astray, but the more you grow the stronger you become and the more you will place God at the forefront of all you do. This makes you better equipped to resist the devil and make him flee. He will try and try, but if you stay strong and rooted in the Word of God and adopt that daily fellowship with Him, you will be able to stand any and all tests.

Many leaders don’t want to give up this world just like a lot of their flocks don’t want to give it up. So they stand in their pulpits preaching what they want to in order to keep their people in brainwashed states of minds and submission. They give just enough to make the people feel that they’re a part of something special. Many of them are wolves in sheep’s clothing. People who don’t know God for themselves will and are falling for everything their leaders say and do.

Oftentimes the discretions of leaders are revealed to the public, but their congregations uphold their wrong. They’re not being held accountable and it’s why they go right on to do other things against God. They feel VERY powerful and untouchable. The part about this that breaks my heart is the fact how people persecuted, condemned, beat, and murdered Jesus for doing wonderful marvelous works, yet the world upholds all of the mess some of their leaders are doing today. It makes no sense. This is because people praise and worship man and not the Creator.

Leaders aren’t teaching about demonic spirits, spiritual attachments (which aren’t always demonic, but they can be aggravating to the physical body). They aren’t teaching hell damnation, soul salvation and living holy, or becoming and remaining a new creature. They’re teaching a lot of building up your material homes and possessions. When you die you take NOTHING with you. I don’t care what they put in the casket with you or on you; you can’t take it with you. “From dust you came and from it you will return.”

I believe the reason leader’s don’t teach these things is because they don’t believe in them no more than they believe in the existence of God or they’re afraid of it. They fear demons, etc, but don’t believe in God (makes no sense). If they believed they  would be doing, teaching, and preaching differently. It’s okay to teach your flock how to become the best individuals they can be in all areas of their lives. However, when how to prosper in a way to gain material possessions or worldly statuses is the ONLY thing or the MOST important things being taught, SOMETHING IS WRONG. The Bible says “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.”   But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth, nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.  (Matthews 6:19 & 20).

If you’re not doing the right thing here on earth. you’ll fail to set yourself up for these things in heaven, you CAN’T blame anyone but YOU! Following the leaders and being lead wrong is a decision made by YOU! People must pray for understanding, wisdom, and knowledge so the blinders can be removed from their eyes. A person has to have a sense of right and wrong, when they don’t they’re likely to be like a leaf in the wind, they will follow what sounds and looks good to them and not necessarily what is right or wrong according to the word of God.

I’m not perfect, but I NEVER use it as an excuse to do something I know isn’t right. I’m not that person I used to be. I don’t do those things I once done and have no desire to do so. I am aware of my thoughts, feelings, and actions. I am also aware of those belonging to others. The Bible says “to try the spirit by the spirit.” If you’re truly on the Lord’s side and living holy, you don’t look at people totally with the nature eye, the spiritual eye is always seeing beyond the natural, because of the Holy Spirit that dwells within. It comes naturally.

I know people get sick of hearing or reading about me talking about Jesus. It is my duty and the duty of any person who claims to love the Lord and is on His side; to sow seeds. As seeds are planted, it’s each individual’s choice as to what they will do with those seeds. They can cultivate them and let them grow or they can let them wither up and die. The choice is always yours to make.
