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.

Gone in an Instant

Standard

None of us knows how, when, or where! I lost an uncle and my grandson’s young father over the Thanksgiving holiday 2016. There are many of my posts about getting our lives together before it’s too late. DEATH is real and it’s coming for each of us. My uncle was quickly taken by cancer, my grandson’s dad quickly and tragically taken by being struck by 2 vehicles.

Life is far too short to not want to be the best we can be. Too many choose to live their lives as if they’re never going to die. NEWS FLASH, we will ALL someday die and unfortunately many lives will be gone in an instant without a chance to repent. If we die in our mess that’s it!! Eternal damnation will be the choice made. No one knows the day or the hour, this is why it’s so important to get your lives together while you’re able to repent and change your ways. Don’t be a person who God has turned over to a reprobated mind.

I’ve written many times and will continue to write; nothing in this world is worth losing your soul over. If we die in the midst of our sins we don’t get any do over’s. Right now is it! Right now is our opportunities to get it right and live a life that’s pleasing in the sight of Jesus. We can play too long until we’ve played out and it’s too late. Don’t let it be you!

Death is coming like a thief in the night and without warning. No matter the situation or circumstance no one knows exactly down to the sec when they will take their last breath and depart from this physical world to a spirit realm. As long as we have breath in our bodies and blood running warm in our veins it’s NOT too late to get it right.

People of today are out of control. Many are lost souls who has submitted to the works of the darkness. They are out to do harm to others for no legitimate reasons. Their minds are controlled by evil thoughts; with raw emotions and feelings behind those evil thoughts until they end up doing the unthinkable. People are doing all sorts of foolishness. It comes from what’s truly in the hearts of people. When they are full of darkness (envy, jealousy, anger, malice, strife for WHATEVER reason/s) they are overcome by this darkness and it shows in their actions. They do things, because those things are what they have been thinking about for a long while, those things are eventually put into actions. They are seeking to belong, to be loved, or something they lack. They are easily persuaded and manipulated into foolishness. This is the work of evil which is here to kill, steal, and destroy. Look around; no matter where you are, you will see and hear about the madness going on in this world. People are broken all over the world, they are lost. They are young and old. They are of all races!

People are committing all kinds of evil acts and many are killed in the midst of committing those acts. These people have chose eternal damnation when they didn’t have to. People must stop being so easily influenced, brainwashed, manipulated, and persuaded by others. We all have a brain to think on our own and for ourselves. Even if you had a twin one was born before the other, therefore we are all birthed into this world alone. It’s great to have people who love you and are there for you, but in case you don’t have this; we ALL must be able to stand alone and make the right decisions and choices for ourselves. People must stop being influenced by others to do the wrong things.

To kill or harm in the name of ANY form of religion or hate is ludicrous. To kill or harm in the name of what a person thinks is love is ludicrous. To kill or harm, because you can’t deal with who you are is ludicrous. To live a life full of balled up pain when you don’t have to is ludicrous, because it keeps you captive by your own mind and it causes nothing but havoc in your lives.

I still believe nothing but love conquers hate. Some people are full of hate for all kinds of reasons, but it does nothing but feed the darkness they hold inside. These people don’t have a chance for eternal life if they die in the midst of their sins and darkness. We don’t know where, how, or when it will be our time to leave this world. Right now is the chance for change, but it’s up to each individual what they choose. In one blink of an eye any one of us could be gone. Think about today, how you choose to continue to live; because your life can be gone in an instant. Today is all we have, tomorrow isn’t promised, and yesterday is gone forever!

 

 

 

 

 

Backdoor of Life Leads to Death

Standard

Have you ever thought of this? The older I get I find myself thinking about death. I’m not afraid to die, but there are ways I don’t want to die. The reason I’m not afraid to die, is because I believe we are created to live forever either in Heaven or Hell. I choose Heaven all day, everyday. It’s all about what we believe. No matter what comes out of a person’s mouth, what a person believe is demonstrated in how they live. Many people live something other than what they profess, but at the end of the day when that back door opens and we have to step out into eternity, how we chose to live determines the path we will take.

I’ve always stressed the fact that I am not trying to push my beliefs on anyone, however I will always speak and write about my belief/faith. As God’s children we are supposed to be messengers and it’s my duty to provide what Jesus has given me. God wishes for none of His children to perish. The world we live in isn’t our home, we’re only passing through. We’re not here forever, but only for a little while. Everyday we live it’s our chance to right any wrong, but unfortunately many don’t believe therefore they don’t change their ways. You also have those who say they believe but are only pretending.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t want to be caught with my work undone. I want to be caught up in the rapture! People who know me think I am quite peculiar, but isn’t that what the Bible says about His people (we are peculiar people). When I put away my old ways I didn’t go back to them. I made up my mind and I never turned back. There are many people who meet me and without knowing me they don’t like me because I am different. I don’t act like them, do what they do, talk like them, or see things as they do. I live 24 hours a day, 365 days a year believing that God the Father and His Son Jesus are watching me. At one point in my life my eyes were on man only to realize every man’s knees shall one day bow. I had to find out for myself that every man has to stand for his or herself. I decided to put my eyes on who has the power and authority over Heaven and Hell. He’s the Author and the Finisher of our Fate. After doing this everything in my life changed. I am still me, but I am completely renewed. I could have been dead many times (literally), but for some reason I was spared. I can’t thank Him enough, I wouldn’t serve no other.

People think by living in the world they can’t separate themselves from the world. I believe people do exactly what they choose. I know you can separate yourself and in order to live for Heaven you must separate yourselves. The problem with most is they don’t want to give up their foolishness; not  understanding not giving it up will cause them to miss Heaven. There’s absolutely nothing in this world worth losing your soul. Many live as if they’re not going to die, but rest assure one day each  of us must step out our back door of life; there is nothing on earth that will stop it from happening. It will someday happen to every one of us.

My prayer is that people who believe get on the right side and stay there, stop flip flopping, and stop playing games. If you say you believe then live like you do! For those who don’t believe I recommend Jesus on today, I’m not saying you should, must, have to, (I’m only recommending), the choice is yours. One day the lights in our eyes will go out and our lids will close for the last time we will then step out through lives backdoor into the choice we made while we had blood running through our veins.

The world we live is becoming more and more unstable. People are fighting, killing, stealing, no love, no values or morals, families are divided, hatred running rampant, destruction on every hand. There’s things going on in all corners of the world. For me and my house I will serve the Lord. Many people worrying about fixing up their physical and natural homes, but they don’t think about getting right their spiritual homes. Everything else we have will pass away, but our spiritual bodies is what will live forever. Our spiritual houses is what we step into once we step out of life’s backdoor.

 

 

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.

 

 

Faithfulness

Standard

I know this post will step on many toes and I’m hoping it hurts enough that someone will want to change. I wanted to write about this, because this is happening all over the world to so called people who are professing Christ in their lives.

People are very faithful to many things and many people. They go out of their way to show their faithfulness and will not waver from it. They are faithful and true to those things and people.

Millions are faithful to their name brand material things. They will not walk out of their homes unless they’re matching from head to toe with their named brand clothes and accessories. Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with looking good and there’s nothing wrong with purchasing what you can afford, but when it’s an obsession, then that means it too far. Some women carry named brand purses, but don’t have any money to go in them. This is sad, because what a person has doesn’t define who they are and for many it’s a camouflage to cover something else.

For many bigger is better. There are many who have big homes and big cars but no money for gas for those cars. As far as the homes they don’t burn their heat in the winter or air in the summer, because it’s too expensive. This makes no sense, if you can’t afford it why have it? It’s  sad people freeze in their homes or burn up in their homes because they can’t afford to burn their heating and cooling systems.

As for sports, wow! People go crazy for sports teams and memorabilia. Millions are spent on items to include tickets, etc. People go bonkers to keep up with their teams, etc. They spend hundreds and thousands to see their favorite teams play. It’s like they’re possessed or obsessed by these things.

Those who go to church go faithfully, they pay their tithes faithfully not even understanding what tithing is truly about, who it was initially intended for, and how it was performed. They have no clue in Malachi when it talks about a storehouse that there were storehouses intended for keeping crop and meats fresh (like a modern day refrigerator). They are brainwashed by the church leaders of today. They go to church every Sunday and when they miss they feel guilty. This is because they are praising and worshipping their church leaders and not God the Father and His Son Jesus. Many churches of today are business oriented and not about gaining souls for their heavenly home. They are too worried about losing souls from their church homes. If you lose members then you can’t finance the sanctuaries, those nice homes, cars, and the lifestyle period! I know someone is mad and all I can say from the heart is if it hurts then it hurts for a reason. Take a closer look at why it bothers you. If it doesn’t pertain to you at all, then it shouldn’t bother you. People don’t get hurt by the truth unless it’s the truth! Get it????

Millions are faithfully engaged in things that are not of God the Father and His Son Jesus, but they profess them in their lives. They are committing adultery, fornicating, idolizing, stealing, killing, lying, involved in drugs, drunken with alcohol, deep into gambling, lovers of themselves, sexual immoral, and you name it. None of it is of God, at least not God the Father and His Son Jesus. Anything you do that dams your soul is a sin. If it has a hold on you, it’s a sin. The biggest problem in these situations is people want to say no one is perfect. Well, don’t the Word say “we are made in His image? When we surrender our lives to Him, then we take on His ways, because our ways aren’t His ways. We become new creatures and our old filthy ways are no more. That is; if you truly surrender. You won’t think, feel, or act the same and you will know without a doubt that you can live Holy. You can’t enter into the Kingdom of God unless you live Holy. Many leaders don’t live Holy, because although they’re leading their flocks, they themselves haven’t given up this world. The things they’re doing behind closed doors is no secret to the Father. To say no one is perfect is an age old excuse to keep doing what one wants to do, but as mentioned in an earlier post it can’t be used as a get of hell free card!

There are many things I could mention, but the last thing I want to write about is how people are faithful to worshipping other people. This is one of the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. People seem to lose their minds over celebrities and other people of status, when the only difference between them and those people are money and lifestyles. They still have the same issues in life (relationship issues, emotional issues, mental issues, self esteem and confidence issues, sickness, and death etc). Yet many go out of their way to worship them, (literally).

You can’t accept what you don’t know. You can’t receive what you don’t believe in. However, when you profess to believe and you live something else, then you are a liar. This post is intended for those types of people. You don’t realize that nothing is hidden from God. The playing and perpetrating will get you no where but damnation. The Bible  says “gain the whole world and lose your soul.” My question to you; is it worth it? It may seem so while you are living and breathing, but one day you won’t be. If heaven is your goal, then you must live now while you have the chance, so you can have a seat at the welcome table in Heaven.

Where is your faithfulness? Many of you abuse your temples (bodies), your sanctuaries by doing things in them that’s not of God, and you’re too worried about your earthly homes and not enough about gaining access to your heavenly home. None of us knows the day or the hour that our time on earth will come to an end. If you’re not ready, then it will be nobody’s fault but yours. This is an individual thing, no one can do it for you and you can’t do it for no one.

If you’re faithful to everyone and everything else, then you can’t be faithful to God. Well let me rephrase this statement. You are being faithful to your gods, but not God the Father and His Son Jesus. You probably wondering why I keep stating it as such. I write God the Father and His Son Jesus, because you can’t get to the Father less you go through the Son and together they make one. Another reason I phrase it as such is because many worship gods, but not the one that begins with the big G (God the Father and His Son Jesus). They profess it, but the truth is in their daily walk which reveals who they really are and what side they’re really on. Remember you can fool some people some of the time, but you can’t fool God none of the time. Where is your faithfulness??? If you’re above the ground and not beneath it then today is your day to get it right, you may not get another one!

 

 

Miracle of Life

Standard

I understand many people don’t believe, that is your prerogative and I’m not here trying to push anything on you. However, it is my duty to write what I am writing.

When I think about how people don’t believe, to me that’s unbelievable. To think about life and death, that in itself is enough to make one believe. Think about it, scientist have been trying to figure out the miracle of life  and many workings of the universe for years and years. They can’t and they never will. It’s simply not meant to be known by man. That is just the way it is. All they can do is speculate, postulate, estimate, theorize, hypothesize, etc. etc. They will never ever know the truth. If it wasn’t something to it all, don’t you think by now there would be some concrete answers?

It takes a man and woman to conceive and form a fetus. Scientist may clone, but they can’t produce a fetus from scratch, it will always take a egg and sperm. I’m sure they can form something, but it won’t be a fetus that grows into an infant, with a life system and is a breathing, living being. Something will be off, because it’s not the ability of man to create life. To see something so tiny grow into life, that is able to survive in amniotic fluid for nine months without drowning is nothing short of a miracle. A fetus is attached to a mother’s umbilical cord, where it gets all it needs to survive its time in the womb. I think it’s amazing and definitely a miracle!

We are born vibrant with bright eyes and then we will age and our eyes don’t look as bright anymore, they begin to get dim looking or grayish (something). Our bodies won’t stay the same, we change and sometimes look different as we grow older. Our senses become dimmer and our footsteps are a little shorter and slower. I don’t care how much plastic surgery a person gets that body will age. This is a miracle!

Think about something as simple as sleep. We have to sleep at some point or another, if a person never slept they would go insane. Why is this? It’s because that’s how God created our bodies. We have to rest or we will break down. It’s a miracle most don’t think about. It’s not by chance that we get to a point where we have to close our eyes and get some rest.

When you look at the sun, moon, and stars; how they hang  perfectly without crashing down killing us. It’s a miracle. Scientist can theorize and hypothesize as to how and why, but that’s all it is. They don’t really know! They never will! That is the way it was meant to be. All of the space is our universe is there for a reason, but it’s unknown to man.

Death is something to think about too. We are housed in this shell and then one day we are gone. Everything we worked hard for and have accomplished no longer has any meaning to us or for us. To me that is so deep! Our organs stop working and our life is gone from this earth.

God is real and He shows Himself to us every single day. He doesn’t beat us over the head to believe, but he hopes that we would believe. He loves each and everyone of us and has no respectable person. The choices we make are the choices we make, but with our choices and decisions are consequences. May you have peace in your life!

 

 

 

Unexpected Death

Standard

On 9/11 this year I lost my cousin who was in her early 20’s. She and my daughter had babies close to the same time not even 3 weeks ago. She may have had hers a few days earlier. She became ill because she wouldn’t stop hemorrhaging and deteriorated. Although her baby went home, my cousin never left the hospital. No one expected this at all.

I wanted to share this, because I’ve written over and over and I’ve talked about how we only have this moment that we are currently living. Tomorrow isn’t promised, ALL we have is right now; this very moment. My prayer is that she made total peace with God before she died.

Sometimes people have a chance to make peace, but other times, because of the life people chose to live they don’t get that chance. They die suddenly in the midst of their sins. I thank God that she had time and I pray she took it.

None of us knows when our clocks will be stopped, (when He will say our time is up). How we live our lives right now determines our eternal rest. People are sad and heavy laden when a loved one is no longer with us. Our loved ones and friends who have passed has done what we all will do. No one is exempt!! Your looks, money, your skin color, title, status, etc will not save you from death.

People don’t want to give up their sexing, fornication, adultery, filthy sex acts, nasty ways of living, nasty thoughts and acts, filthy fetishes, addictions, statuses, titles, partying, etc. They want to continue to seek fame and fortune, laying up their worldly treasures. They continue to be selfish and greedy and submit to the world. It’s all a personal choice. When I was a part of the worldly ways I did some things unpleasing to the Lord, but some things I never ever involved myself in. Although some things I never did, my sins wasn’t considered little blemishes, sin is sin and I was just as filthy.

Some deaths are completely unexpected to us, but NONE or unexpected to God, for He holds our time clocks in the palms of His hand. He doesn’t want death of our loved ones to allow us to become sad and depressed. He wants us to rejoice the time we had with them. We all must someday die and the process begins the day we’re born.

First I want to give condolences to anyone going through bereavement. Cry for a moment if you must, but don’t allow it to  keep you in a depressive state, because they’ve done something that you and I will someday do. There is no way around it. Life goes on with or without you! It’s very tough to deal with death, but we must do so. My prayer is that you understand that if you’re not reborn by the time you die, that when you die you’re dead and you don’t have a chance for eternal life. The time to choose is now; while we have blood running through our veins.

Nothing is unexpected to God!! He wishes for NONE of us to perish. Every day we live is a chance to get right with Him. I pray that you make the right choice. All we have will one day be no good to us. It is meaningless to God now and it will be completely meaningless to us when we die. What we must  understand now is that how we live right now determines our eternal rest. You can be placed in the most glamorous vault available, but it will not save your soul from eternal damnation.

None of us would have EVER thought my cousin would be gone. She was full of life, fun and vibrant. She got to hold and enjoy her Son for a short period and I am thankful for that. Yesterday I met a man and we talked for a while about the goodness of the Lord. He then told me that on 9/11 he lost his niece she was only 10. She was at school and had some type of reaction. We just never know when it will happen. As I said before, many people leave home, but never return and then there are those who came home and never left again.

God is coming back for each of us one day, “in the twinkling of an eye.” He’s coming “like a thief in the night.” None of us knows when He will return for us. All I pray is that you’re ready!!!!!!
