Living Your Life, But Spiritually Dead

Standard

Some people claim to be living there best lives without Jesus being in it. Not possible! Many people claim to love Jesus, yet they are seeking after houses, land, fame, and fortune, but aren’t seeking” the Kingdom of God and its righteousness.” They seek after material prosperity, but not spiritual prosperity! They don’t have a connection to or relationship with the true source which is the Father and the Son (God and Jesus). If there’s no relationship with them then there’s none with the Holy Spirit. Many people profess they love the Lord, but do not seek after Him.

Money runs out or you die and can no longer spend it, houses get old and depreciate- they burn up- or they get blown away in storms, friends come and go – half the time they are fake, family can sometimes be your worst enemy and when you need them they are nowhere to be found, cars breakdown, most times you may own the house never the land, all material things are left behind, people destroy themselves trying to climb ladders of success or trying to stay on the pedal stools people put them on, and the list goes on. Regardless, these are the things people desperately seek after!

All of the things we treasure and build up on earth will have no significance to us when we step out of life’s back door into the eternity we chose of free will. Once we take the step out there’s no turning back. We can’t blame anyone for the choices we make or have made. No one else is to blame for how we choose/chose to live our lives.

The problem with a lot of people who profess Christ is they only speak it, they don’t live it. They do what they do to please man. They praise and worship man, but not God. They desire relationships with different people while not attempting to get one with Jesus. They mimic holiness, but they aren’t Holy. They don’t read the Word for themselves nor do they seek understanding. They get mad at the truth. They fall for anything because of their double minded ways.

Everything people acquire on earth will be left behind when they die. None of it will matter. The wealthiest individual is the poorest if they don’t have Jesus. The poorest is the richest if they do! Money can buy a person many things, but it can’t buy a seat into the Kingdom of God! The seat is reserved for you and have already been purchased with a price. Yet people work feverishly building their treasures on earth. Our physical bodies will decay away, our spiritual bodies will not! Once these physical bodies are no more we move completely into our spiritual bodies. Whatever we choose while in our physical bodies has devastating consequences for us eternally. When you step out of your life’s back door you step into what you chose!

God Will Separate the Real From the Fake

Standard

You best believe He will do it. I’m talking about the God with the big G and not the little g. Time is at hand, but many people are still playing church. Look around at all of the tragedies that are happening day in and day out, things are getting worse each day. Still; it is not enough for people to want to give up the ways of the world.

My message is to encourage those who claim to believe to reexamine their lives. There’s nothing man can do other than kill your body, they can’t harm your soul. Who a person chooses to serve while they live determines where they will live for eternity. Man can’t do anything other than bow before the King. Man includes everyone!!!

All the mocking of God and Jesus is damnation. All of the mimicking is a simple form of acting with no relevance towards getting into Heaven. The old saying we’ve all heard “fake it to you make it” is shenanigans. If a person keeps faking it they won’t make it at all.

There are many leaders in the churches. They go by many titles, but not one title means nothing if they’re not called by God. Many are called by man and it shows in their walks. They do and say things not becoming of a person who is walking with the Lord. It shows in many of their shortcomings. God will reveal these people! Nothing you think is a secret is a secret!!!!

Many people claim they are on His side ONLY to be man pleasers, doing any and everything against God. The sad part is they act as if God doesn’t know. They take on a form of godliness, but they aren’t truly Godly. If you’re not for Him you’re against Him, period!! You can’t serve two Gods, period!! There is only ONE God, but many other gods!

Too many are using Him like a pawn. They pray in the church rambling on using eloquent words they think are beautiful to the ears. They fake the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongue. None of it will provide a person a seat in the Kingdom. A person must be born again and they must live Holy. Perpetrating and pretending will get a person nowhere but in hell.

Too many are running to the church house for show. It’s all a form of performance, fashion, and showboating. It’s all too appease and please man. People faithful to man in all their doings but NOT to God and His Son Jesus. Jesus died on the cross for our sins, yet many still choose sin when salvation is free. For many they act as if His dying was in vain, because of how people STILL choose to live. They claim to live for Him when they really don’t. I’m very thankful His dying wasn’t in vain, because He chose me and with honor I choose Him!

We have to be transformed completely. Many claim to live for Jesus yet they live any kind of way. We can’t do all of the things we once done and think it’s okay; it’s not! The Bible speaks of false prophets, teachers, leaders, and people in general who are professing living for Him and doing His works; yet are lying and living hypocritically!!

My prayer is that people seek Him while they can. I pray for those who don’t know Jesus in the pardoning of their sins. I pray for those who claim to know and live for Him, because IF they don’t change they will lose their souls.

Man has nothing good enough for me to be willing to give up Jesus and turn back to the world, NOTHING!! Nothing and no one is worth it and anyone who knows me, knows this is how I feel. He’s first in my life and I stand on His Word. I want Him to tell me “well done my good and faithful servant.” Nothing on this earth is worth me missing the mark!

God is going to do the separating of the Saints from those who are ONLY pretending (the aints). In His word He has already told us to separate ourselves, but too many who claim to have separated themselves have not. They are trying to play both sides when it’s NOT possible. Either you’re for Him or against Him. If you’re not 100% for Him then you’re against Him.

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.

 

 

WHO ARE YOU CONNECTED TO

Standard

As I think about the ways of the world and how so called Christians are succumbing to it; thinking what they’re doing is hidden God put this message in my heart. If you remember this one thing and you allow it to permeate every fiber within you, your life will change. Just because you say you’re holy, it doesn’t mean you are. Just because you’ve given your life to Christ doesn’t mean you’re living holy or that you have the right connection to Him. People have it misconstrued and their ways of thinking are about as wrong as it can get. None of us will live forever. I keep telling people right now is really all we have. The present is just that! It’s a “present” a gift to us from God. It is right now, and if we live to see another day it will always be the “present”, yesterday will be gone forever and, tomorrow is still never promised. All we ever have is right now (the present). This is the time to get it right with God.

I’m telling you this because too many people are professing one thing, yet living another. Time is out and up for playing with God and playing church. I see people claiming to love God and to live holy, but they are doing everything they think they’re big and bad enough to do. The reason people do this is because they don’t really know who God is. They want to be associated with Him, but they don’t have the right connection. Their hook up is wrong; the wires are crossed up somewhere.

Some of you are claiming to love God so, yet you can’t love your own parents or others in your life. This is impossible! You can’t do it. There’s no way you can “truly” love God, but hate your fellowman (parents, friends, other loved ones, and others). God is love!!!!!!!!!!!! I look at the world today and all of the hatred people are having for one another. It’s so sad. Yet, many of you are claiming to love God so. It is a LIE and the TRUTH isn’t in you! It’s not possible! If you can’t love right here on earth you can forget about Heaven. Right now is the time to get it right! Right now is the time to love! One reason the world is in such a bad way is because, people don’t know how to love one another. Too many hardened hearts. They’re allowing jealousy and envy to blind them. They’ve allowed greed and lust to consume them. They’re NOT hooked up to the right source (Jesus).

Some of you are claiming to love God, yet you don’t spend anytime with Him. You don’t spend time in the Word and you don’t spend time in prayer. You can’t hear God speaking to you, because you’re always running your mouth. You spend to much time and energy trying to convince man you’re holy, yet all along your ways are showing the truth. You’re so blind by YOUR truth until you don’t realize it. Stop trying to please man. “Get the beam out of your eyes” and get the right connection to God. Once you do this, you will no longer worry about trying to please man. You will then understand what the importance of spending time with God means. Your walk will no longer be the same.

God wants to make you into the person you’re claiming to be, but He can’t do it if you don’t stop playing and go ahead and truly surrender to Him. Some of you are too busy showboating for man until you’re missing your blessings from God.

God wants you to lay all of your mess at His feet. God’s not impressed or pleased at what people are doing. He doesn’t wish for any of us to perish and this is why He gives us chance after chance. The problem is many of your connections are wrong. You’re connected to man and the ways of the world and NOT God. Your “present” is His way of giving you another chance to lay it all at His feet. Many of you are too focused on doing things your way, because your connections are wrong or you don’t have any at all.

One thing I’m thankful for is that “God ways isn’t our ways.” He’s not impressed by our titles, what we have, who we are, the color of our skin, our nationalities, our looks, etc. We are ALL his children. All He cares about is that we choose “eternal life.” He’s not going to make us choose it, because Salvation is free! He’s already paid the price for our sins. All we have to do is live in a way that we receive “eternal life.” We do this by being connected to the “right source” this source is God and His Son Jesus Christ.

Still by knowing this, many are choosing the ways of the world and edification to man. This is because they’re hooked up to the wrong source. The only true source is God and His Son Jesus! Those who claim Him, but living something else are liars and the truth isn’t in them.

Too many are worried about the outer appearances of their bodies and their worldly possessions when inside they’re filthy dirty rags who are trying to hide behind using God as their source when it’s clear they’re not hooked up to Him. God doesn’t have any part of this! When God truly dwells within us, He doesn’t change us from the outside in; He changes us from the inside out. You become hooked up to the right source! When He changes us the outside will come into alignment with the inside. It’s like Jesus being connected to the Father; they’re as one. Having the right connection aligns both the inside and the outside of who we are as one who’s connected to the right source. Once you have the right connection you will no longer be concerned about pleasing man and being a part of the ways of this world. Your lives will completely change and you will put down the old ways and become a “new creature.”

God is love and once people are truly connected to Him their hearts will change. They will know how to love, they will know how to forgive, and most importantly they will spend time building their personal relationships with God.

All I’m saying today is get hooked up to the right connection on today. When you do, you will stop cursing from the same lips you praise God. You will no longer allow anything or anyone else to take hold and power over you. You will no longer worry about building your possessions here on earth in a way it controls your reason for living. You will lay down the burdens of your pains of yesterday and stop allowing your past to ruin your “present” from God. You will stop praising and worshipping man and other idols. It will no longer be all about you, but it will be about the Jesus in you.

My prayer is that you get connected today while you have the chance. Many of you still won’t do it, because despite of it all you still don’t want to give up the ways of the world. However it may be; the decision is yours to make. Nothing this world has to offer is worth you losing your soul and spending eternity in hell. The choice is yours and my prayer is you get the right connection to day.
