No Relationship No Power

Standard

A lot of people talk about loving Jesus the Son and God the Father, yet they have no relationship or real connection to the source. How do people think they will have the power given unto us without a real relationship with the Creator? It’s not possible!

There are plenty of people in this world who profess Jesus and the Father from their lips, yet they are living something else! Talking just to talk won’t get it. Doing things or speaking just to be seen and heard won’t get it. No one can have the power God has given us if they don’t have a relationship with Him.

Many people are missing out on their God given power and gifts, because they choose to gamble with their lives. You can go to church, read the Bible, be nice to people, love folks, tithe, give, go to Bible study, sing in the choir, etc, etc NONE of it will get you into Heaven! You can’t get to the Father without going through to the Son and you can’t get to either if you don’t have the necessary relationship.

Learning to mimic and mock won’t work! Matter of fact it is wrong to mock God. The very people you’re fronting/faking for has to stand before the Father on that Great Day just as you and I! The Bible says “every knee say bow to Jesus and every tongue shall confess to the Father.” That means no soul is exempt.

We are living in a satanic, demon, evil infested world. I don’t know why people still want to gamble with their souls. This world has nothing to offer but death.

Too many people are too busy trying to pretend to be something they know they are not. Sad part is the same people you’re faking in front of they are faking in front of someone else. Senseless! People are too busy trying to please man when man has no Heaven or hell to put them in. Yet, people still try to act one way in front of certain people when they know they are something else.

Time is winding up. It’s winding up for you, me, and everyone else. Every day we live to see we die a little bit. I mean physically! Everyday we are a step closer to death. We may transgress back to acting like children, but these bodies don’t go backwards they progress forward.

What do people need to gain from the world before they are ready to go all the way for the Father and the Son? Seeking after everything or anything else other than God leaves you with nothing, but being a lost soul.

Many people get emotions confused with the anointing when they are completely different. Many people get gifts and talents confused. Gifts are from God, talent is a whole other story (something innate or learned). Many people are led astray by their churches, leaders, and others; because they don’t have that personal relationship for self. They are too busy following everyone and everything other than God the Father and His Son Jesus.

The Holy Spirit is here to lead and guide, but it can’t when people aren’t willing vessels. You can’t walk in the Spirit with the Spirit when you don’t acknowledge the Father and Son. People must be all the way in; if not then they are out. Plain, simple, and to the point!

Choosing to be a Slave to Sin

Standard

Romans 6 1-8 please read it. People who claim to love Jesus must take a stand. You can’t continue to willfully sin and say you love Jesus. No none of us are perfect. However, we should live in a way pleasing to the Lord. He dwells in those who receive Him and live for Him and because of it if we choose we can gain a perfected holy way of living.

We all fall short, we all go through, etc. It doesn’t mean you’re choosing sinful ways. If you truly love Him you will live for Him. When a person truly fall in love with Jesus and choose to live for Him they don’t want to do what they once did. If a person doesn’t change then something is wrong. There is no way you can remain the same!

Too many people fall because they are already trying to stand on an unstable foundation. Foundations are unstable, because people are trying to have it both ways when it’s impossible. Folks don’t want to truly give up this world. When you choose Jesus there’s no way you can continue to live the same IF you do then you’re not truthfully living what you profess.

It’s not hard serving the Lord. Matter of fact the more you do the more you want to. What’s hard in the minds of many is giving up this world. You can’t give up your old ways without giving up this world.

The sad part is many people think they are fooling God, duh, NO you’re not! You may fool some people, but you sure aren’t fooling Jesus the Son nor God the Father. If you want to stay in the world, it’s your choice, but to pretend you love the Lord yet you are still in the world it gets you nowhere other than closer to hell! Playing games with your soul is very dangerous, because you don’t know the day nor the hour your time will be up. Don’t mess around and be out of chances to get it right the Creator.

People willfully choose their slavery mentalities. They are slaves to sin and they do it of free will. They are completely led by the lusts of their flesh seeking self gratification in many ways (sex, money, love, material things, etc, etc). People are more and more offended with the truth. If you’re offended with the Word of God, it only means in some way the truth affects you. It cuts like a knife. It resonates within! Many people feel this, but they continue to remain in the world.

Most times the only reason people are pretending to love the Lord is to please man. They try to make man think they are on the Lord’s side. They learn how to mock and mimic. Yet in their hearts and behind closed doors they are doing any and everything they want to even thought it’s against the Lord.

Remember anytime you’re not all in for Jesus it means you’re out! Period!

Stuff Is All It Is

Standard

At the end of the day all we’ve acquired is a bunch of stuff. It may mean something to man, but it means nothing when it comes to departing this world. Nothing we acquire can go with us.

I was sitting feeling emotional due to the death of my co worker. As they pack his office, which happens to be right next to mine, it made me really think. We work to get what we want, need, and desire in life. Some people cut throat and have their dog eat dog mentality to get to the top, etc. The whole time, nothing we acquire benefits us in the end. Other people may benefit from it until they die, but the person who worked hard, cheated, schemed, or whatever to get it doesn’t benefit.

I’m only saying this because as sure as we live we will die. People are going about the hustle and bustle of their lives as if they aren’t going to take the same journey. One thing about me I know I will and therefore I accept it. Some people act as if they will live forever. News flash! You won’t!

People worry about their things/their stuff, but they don’t think about getting their spiritual houses in order. This stuff will be taken, sold, or given away, none of it will benefit us when we are gone. It’s very important people start thinking about getting their spiritual houses in order while they can. If you don’t then how you chose to live on this earth determines your eternal home. It’s no joke, it’s serious business.

None of us would have thought my co-worker would be gone, but he is. He was younger than me and not sick. Life can be taken in an instant. I mean in a second. Individuals must get ready now while they can. If it doesn’t matter to you, it’s your choice. However, if you want Heaven to be your home, then you have to live as if you do right now while you can. None of us knows what the next moment will bring.

Death comes for us all and it does not discriminate. It takes babies to the elderly. It takes the sick, the healthy, the poor, the rich, man, boy, woman, and girl of all races and populations. Jesus says He’s coming back “in a twinkling of an eye.” I’ve seen it so many times. We must be ready! I know we can’t be ready by knowing when it will happen, but we all can be ready by living for Jesus while we yet live.

Many people talk about it, but they are not about the business of Jesus. They do things so man can be pleased, yet they forget the Master sees it all. Those very people they are trying to please have to someday meet the Maker too! Get your minds and hearts right. Get them on Jesus, for He’s coming back sooner or later for us all. We all will have our turn! One thing for sure getting into Heaven isn’t based on what you’ve acquired on earth. You must be born again and you must do what the Lord has commanded us all to do! He didn’t discriminate nor did He have any respectable people. What was said was meant for us all!! We have a choice to choose or not to choose Jesus! If you love Him you will live for Him. Point blank! All of our curtains are going down day by day!

Jesus Never Changed to Teach Anyone

Standard

People need to stop the lying! I’m tired of people who know they are still in the world yet pretending to love the Lord. Just because a person says they love Him, it means nothing if they aren’t living it. Listen, if you love Him you will serve Him. You won’t be double minded. You will stand on the Word and you will not waiver for anyone. You can’t serve both Jesus and the adversary the devil. If you think you can you’re wrong and lying to yourself. If you serve the devil when you feel it’s convenient, then you’re on his side! Jesus the Son and God the Father accepts it no other way. You’re either for God and His Son or against Him, there is absolutely no in between!

There are many people in this world who are still doing things of the world, yet they use the Lord’s name in vain pretending to love and serve Him. They do worldly things and pretend it’s to draw the children or a particular group. Please! No, you do it, because you’re still in the world and what you’re doing is worldly and what you are really about is the world. You may fool some people, but you’re NEVER fooling the Son or the Father! Jesus knows exactly what you’re doing! Then you wonder where is your power, you can’t activate something you don’t possess. You can’t possess what you haven’t yet received and accepted. All of the shenanigans people display pretending and mocking God is for man.

People continue to want to change this and that to appease man. They want to add to and take away from the Word when God said don’t do it! Show me anywhere in the Bible where God acted differently to preach or teach any particular group of people. The people in the world constantly change jumping from one thing to another, because they go with whatever pleases them the most at the moment, but God is unchanging. The WORD is unchanging! People can believe the hype that the world is changing and you have to change with it if they want too. Although it may be true, people are doing things against the Word therefore against the Father to please others and self. No matter the changes occurring it doesn’t mean you EVER have to go against God’s Word to please or appease ANYONE. When it comes to the Word of God, you just can’t twist and turn it. It is what it is, has been, and always will be (unchanging)!

There are no specific ways set aside for the children, young adults, or older people. He teaches the same across the board for all people. His Word is just that and it fits all people. This is one reason I never believed in children’s church. There shouldn’t be any division. This is man’s doing NOT God’s, because Jesus never used a special teaching for anyone.

Those who are still in the world have worldly views about how the people of the church should conduct themselves. They have worldly views on how the church should operate. Their views are normally based according to how they allow the flesh to rule in their lives. Their focus is on the pastor and NOT the Master. They are too busy trying to please man. They do as the world says do and NOT God!

Excuses Won’t Matter or Work

Standard

This past weekend I was looking at some videos sent to me on some so called pastors. Yes, I will say so-called, they are the ones who call themselves pastors, but they aren’t called of God. How do I know? I know because when you’re living for the Lord and you’re called you won’t be doing what you once did and on top of it; making excuses for what you’re doing. Those who are on Jesus’s side are not trying to please man and they certainly don’t use excuses for why they are still doing worldly things. Only people who are still in the world display such behavior. It won’t get you off the hook. You will pay for the choices you make.

Judging, this normally comes out of the mouth of those who are still in the world, but always making excuse for self and those like them. When serving Jesus, you’re either in or out. There’s none of the other stuff. If people are trying to give people encouragement, enlightment, motivation, insight, etc to do a self examination it is not judging. It is not judging to call people out on their bull, especially in relation to the Word of God. Only those who are not doing what thus saith the Lord complains it’s judging. Those excuses will not give you a go for going to Heaven. It will give you an exit the other way!

He’s still a man. This irks me! It has nothing to do with a man being a man when serving God. Flesh is flesh, period, and it’s what most are led by. People want to make excuses for men and women who are still doing worldly things. Listen, if you’re on Jesus side and you really love Him the way you profess, then you will do what’s right when that ole devil try to make you do wrong. You will not be led by your flesh. Those who are easily led by their flesh makes excuses for what they do. Accept who you really are when you’re still doing worldly things. You do it because you’re still in the world, point blank! Those who are making excuses for people doing wrong by blaming they are still flesh and bone are people who are also in the world and doing worldly things. Children of God know better! They don’t allow the flesh to lead them. They know they have a certain criteria they must live by and they won’t allow anyone or anything to hinder their walk with the Lord. It’s sad when people make excuses for themselves or for others who are outwardly doing wrong with no regards of their salvation. You can’t serve God and do what the world does, you just can’t!

Another excuse will land many in hell is “no one’s perfect.” This is an excuse to keep doing wrong, but I tell you one thing it won’t work when standing before the Lord. We are made in His image, therefore we are capable of doing right, making right choices, and living holy lives. It’s not forced, but if you live for Him you must want it and you must take on the characteristics of a changed individual. There’s absolutely no other way! You have to be born again, you must be changed from the ways of the world (the ways you used to be). People can’t continue to use the crutch of not being perfect, they will find themselves hobbling and wobbling right on into hell (you and your crutch). This crutch will not save you from hell!

I don’t care what anyone says if you’ve made up your mind and you are on the Lord’s side than your life will be a reflection of it. No one or nothing will influence or coerce you into going against God the Father, His Son Jesus, or the Holy Spirit. ALL aspects of your walk will change. Honestly I don’t know what the problem is that prevents people from living right other than THEY JUST DON’T WANT TO! I’ve never ever once looked back into the world. I’ve never wanted to. I’ve had plenty of temptations, but I’ve never succumbed to any. I live to live again. I live to see my Jesus face and not just for when I stand before Him, but to reign with Him forever, that is my goal! I don’t give in to my flesh, because I know the tricks of the enemy. I call ole satan out for who he is, every single time! I don’t care how he comes, you have to put him in his place! The more you do this, the stronger you will become and the more power and anointing you will have in your life. You have power and authority by Jesus Christ, use it!

The Bible says “He’s coming in the twinkling of an eye.” We’ve seen it over and over in the lives of others, yet people are still acting as if it doesn’t apply to them. It applies to you, you, you, and me! No one is exempt. He’s coming back for each and every one of us. If your house isn’t in order then you’ve made your choice. If He catches you with your work undone, then you made your choice. If He comes and you’re still doing what the world does, then you’ve made your choice. If He comes and you’re still using people are judging you as an excuse, then you’ve made your choice. If He comes and you’re still using not being perfect as an excuse, then you’ve made your choice. If He comes and you haven’t chosen Him, then you’ve made your choice. The decision is up to each of us, it’s not forced. We have to want to serve him of free will! Remember, your excuses won’t matter or work!

The Sun, Universe, Life, and Death

Standard

I hear a lot of people give all praises to the Sun and those who give all praises to the Universe because they don’t believe in the Father, Son, or the Holy Spirit! I really feel sad for these people.

I don’t understand how people do not believe. The mystery and amazement of the sun; it sits perfectly round in the sky without falling. It gives out bright light in the day and it warms the earth and helps with all types of necessary things pertaining to all life on earth. Do people think the sun put itself in the sky? All of the benefits and the many different aspects of the sun was made this way by God. He made the sun be what it is to us and for us.

The mystery and amazement of the universe; where do you think it came from? People want to believe in cosmic eruptions or explosions and this and that. Man will never ever know the mysteries until it’s time. I believe we will all someday know, but not before time. Scientist can come up with all of the mumble jumble they want to it’s okay, but they will never ever know the truth. There is a reason for the different constellations, stars, the moon, the milky ways, black holes, the many other planets, etc. We don’t know what it is and no matter how people pry and probe, they will never ever unlock the mystery.

The mystery and amazement of child birth; the world may use IVF to make multiples births happen, but they can’t ever make the miracle of life itself. It will always take a woman and a man. It will always require an egg and sperm. People can manipulate and do whatever they are trying to do, it won’t work! God made it specific and unique, it can’t be done by no man! It is so unique and beautiful. It’s amazing how a tiny egg and sperm forms into a fetus and grows into an infant. I am blown away every time I really think about it. Not only that, but think about a baby living in fluid 9 months, how it gets nourishment, etc. It’s amazing!

The mystery and amazement of death; death shouldn’t be scary to anyone. As sure as we’re born we will die. When we depart this world, I believe we go on someone else according to the life we lived until Judgement. I don’t know, but it’s what I believe. No one on earth knows what really happens. I know people have had their near death experiences etc. However, no one can tell exactly what happens to us when we die. I believe our bodies possess a spirit that leaves us. Where it goes is beyond any of us. I believe there is life after death and according to how we lived while in the flesh determines how we live after death into the new life we are given by the Creator.

It’s all fascinating for me to think about. People have postulated, assumed, presumed, experimented, etc. Years on top of years on top of years they’ve tried to figure it out, yet no one has been able to. There is something to it, if no one has figured it out in thousands of years. That alone is proof enough God exist! It’s proof enough for me! I know without a doubt the spiritual world is alive around us, because I’ve had unexplainable experiences. That let me know something more is to follow this life. It may sound outlandish or crazy to some of you, but I know what I’ve encountered.

People don’t want to believe in the Bible. They come up with every excuse as to why the Bible exists. Some say the White man made it up. All of it makes me further believe in God the Father, His Son, and the Holy Spirit. NO MAN has the answers, not one single man on this earth or who has been here. This proves to me there is something magnificent to it. It is the most controversial book in the world. It upsets people and make many outraged. Why?

They want to say we evolved from apes. Really? God made apes very close to the human DNA. Why, I have no clue. He made animals with the ability to procreate like humans and guess what? It STILL takes a male and female for it to happen. He made us and them very specific and unique. We all are connected to live. The sun helps us, plants, and animals to continue the cycle of life. It’s all intertwined in a special way. It is all a part of the perfect plan!

People say man wrote the Bible. Yeah, men who were anointed by God! All I know is the Bible is good to me. It’s real and things written in it is sure coming to pass and has come to pass. In my opinion no man can do this other than one who is anointed of God. To me it also proves the world existed before, because we are living exactly what it talks about in these days and times. It’s accurate about families, children, this generation, homosexuality, sexual immorality, people choosing the world, people falling away, and a whole lot of things. I believe it to be true! Come on, there’s something to it! It’s the most controversial book in the whole entire world. There is a reason why, we just don’t know what it is! We have these amazing scholars and scientists yet not one single soul has been able to figure out the mysteries.

No one or nothing will make me not believe in Jesus, God, or the Holy Spirit. If you don’t believe in Jesus you don’t believe in God. At least not God the Father, the true and living God. People worship many god’s, but they are different from God the Father.

People know it’s all a mystery this is why for more years than any of us can imagine they have been trying to figure it out. God intended for it to be this way. Read the Bible it talks about it. No man will ever figure out the mysteries of the creation of the world, life, or death until it’s time.

All I can say is to live life as if there is Jesus and God won’t hurt you, but to live life as if they don’t exist will. It’s each individual’s choice as to what they choose to believe. However, just know there is consequences for your choices. God gave us the will to freely choose. I’m not trying to convince you to believe if you don’t. I pray you would believe, but if you don’t it’s your choice.

There is more proof out there to believe than there is not to believe. People want to worship the sun and give all honor to the universe when God created it all. Sad, sad, sad! Don’t get upset about my beliefs, I’m free to have them just as other people are free to have theirs. I choose to stick, stand, and stay with the Word of God!

Planted, Nurtured, Maintained

Standard

On this journey to Heaven it is all about choice. Jesus died for all of us. God made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live. When I look at the ways of the world today it saddens me. It’s really sad when people still don’t believe Jesus is real. They say awful things not realizing they are damning their souls. You can never get to the Father if you can’t acknowledge His Son. Many people don’t want to give up their old ways or the ways of this world. They come up with every excuse to hold on to the world and stay where they are. Many who claim they believe do everything to please man, yet nothing to please Jesus. They forget those people they’re worshipping will someday bow down to the Father!

On this journey the seeds are planted by different people, but only the individual can cultivate them to grow. I believe we initially get it from Jesus through the crucifixion, because everything He endured was for us. He showed us the way in which we should live. Then after that comes parents and other people who put in a little here and there. Individual’s can receive it or not! However, the only way to flourish and grow through the cultivation process is by nurturing.

As a child of God we must learn to nurture our walk by a constant relationship with Him, we must be connected to the source, we must have a daily prayer life, we must take on the mindset of a holy person, because if you change the mindset you change the behavior, and we must implement it in our lives daily. We can’t say we are one thing yet live another. It will never work! We must choose God over the world. If we do this we must give up the old ways. There is no other way! We can’t live holy by lip service and not walking it.

We can’t give our lives to Jesus and be on milk our entire lives. We must grow and get strong enough to digest the meat. It gives us nourishment and strength to become who we are ordained to become if we receive it and believe it. A lot of people are still babes in Christ, because they haven’t grown at all. Their eyes are on the world, therefore they are blind. They are unable to see and are still on milk. They are double minded and they go with whatever is tickling their ears the most at the time. They have no roots! They are people who are always trying to change Jesus to fit their situations, beliefs, thoughts, and feelings; when Jesus is unchanging! They are the people who are constantly trying to add to or take away from God’s Word! They are people who always try to make Jesus be what they want Him to be instead of accepting Him for who He is! They are the people who believe they have to do things in a worldly way in order to reach a certain group of people. Lies! Jesus never did it! They are people who says the world is changing, people do things differently than before. Okay, that may very well be true, however; the Word of God is still the same and it’s unchanging. I don’t care how people try to flip and flop it, the Word is the still Word. It is unchanging!

People who profess one thing and live another are stunting their growth in the spirit. They are their own inhibitors. The world is the world, but it’s up to the individual if the world is what they choose. To maintain on this journey to Heaven a person must nurture their walk in order to have something to maintain. Maintaining means we are in constant communication with the Son, the Father, and the Holy Spirit. We must read and study the Word daily. We must do the works God has us to do with honesty and truth! We must stay prayed up, we must keep on the full armor, and we must live according to the Word of God and NOT the word of man! No matter what the world says we should do it’s about what God says. People can’t make Jesus their Master if they’ve reserved the position for their Pastors! We must maintain righteousness and holiness twenty four hours a day. We can’t pick it up and put it down. If you love Him you will serve Him, not some of the time, but ALL of the time!
