The Beautiful Presence of The Holy Spirit

Standard

It dwells in all who believes. The Bible says “faith without works is dead!” People talk real good, but they don’t walk it. We can’t simply be hearers of the Word, we must be doers as well. This is why many don’t believe miracles are happening today. They ARE happening, people must believe! Many people haven’t activated the power given to them from the Lord.

The Holy Spirit is to teach and guide us, but many aren’t connected due to their lack of faith. They are walking by sight and not by faith, because their eyes are on the world! When eyes are on the world and man, expect to be bamboozled into believing things that aren’t true! You’re blind into believing what’s wrong is right and what’s right is wrong! The Bible says “faith without works is dead and faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen.” The only way you can understand is by walking it out through faith. Keep your eyes on Jesus and take it off of the world!

Brainwashing is a big part of today’s societies. People are coerced and persuaded into believing it’s okay to mock God and mimic the Holy Spirit. This is blasphemy against the Holy Spirt, Jesus, and God the Father! A lot of people fail to see it as such, because their eyes are on man. Jesus will not trick, coerce you, or persuade you to choose Him. He wants you to come to Him of freewill. In this world they trick, coerce, persuade, encourage, entice, force etc to get you to do what is against the Lord. They will make it appear good to you, when in reality it’s not good to you or for you!

When you give your life to Christ your life isn’t the same. There is no way you can be a “new creature” doing the same old things. No way! You realize your life is no longer your own. Unfortunately many don’t get pass the milk into being the “new creature.” They choose to not move forward, because they start following man and not the Creator! They lose focus before they ever get started good, because they place their eyes on man! This causes people to lose focus and then sight of the true and living God!

The Holy Spirit dwells in us all, but it can’t work until it’s activated! The only person who can activate it is you, the individual. The Bible says we will be living in times where people will love the world more than Jesus. I see it every day! People are choosing the world over Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit.
You can’t have one without the other. People are choosing their gods over the true and living God. This is why they disbelieve and have no faith in the power of healing and working of miracles in these days and times.

Jesus took all sickness to the cross. We are already healed! You must command it to be so in your lives. Those who don’t believe must activate their power through the Holy Spirit. Jesus said in the Bible “we will be able to do the works He’s done and greater.” That tells you there is awesome power given unto those who believe. Isn’t that wonderfully refreshing news!!

People are walking around with their eyes on man. In other words, their eyes are wide open, yet shut closed! Their hearts has indeed waxed cold. Love has diminished. Through it all; I believe it will all turn around sooner or later. No matter what we see or how we feel; we must stay encouraged. We must stand without wavering! We must believe and walk by faith; not by sight! Jesus has given us everything we need, but it’s our choice to whether we accept it into our lives or not.

Many people are constantly searching for something (love, peace, happiness, friendships, belonging, etc). Everything starts with self. That means we must get in tune with self and Jesus! His Spirit dwells within us, because we are a part of Him! All any of us has to do is tap into the power given to us! Allow the Holy Spirit to do what it is meant to do in your lives. It will turn you into the new creature you should be in Jesus! You won’t see the world or people the same! You will see through the spiritual eye rather than the natural. If you don’t know Him I encourage you to get to know Him. If you know Him, but aren’t living for Him the way you know you should, I encourage you to do so. There is only one way! Either you live for Him or you don’t; there are no in between. Knowing of him and knowing Him is a great difference. Go on, tap into what Jesus has given to you and watch your life change!

God Loves You, You Love The World

Standard

I am not the judge of anyone, but I won’t be a party to the shenanigans or foolishness of anyone. I don’t care who it is! Just because a person doesn’t want to do right doesn’t mean I will go along with their wrong. People need to stop playing church and stop playing with God.

It really saddens me when people don’t realize how they are risking their souls by the lifestyles they are living. People are too busy worrying about what their leaders and other people think of them when half of those people need to be working on self as well. They worry about shining so man can see when man has to stand before God too!

The world is full of people pretending to love the Lord. What people fail to understand is if you love Him you will live for Him, period! There is absolutely no way you can love Him and live any kind of way. You can’t love Him and live a lifestyle against Him. There is no way you can live for Him and be the same! No way, no way, no way! When you live for the Lord everything about you changes. You don’t think, feel, or act the same about anything!

The problem with many people is they do a lot of lip service, but as the Bible say their hearts are far from Him. It shows in their ways of thinking, feeling, and acting. How people choose to live shows who they are really serving.

You can not live a life doing things that are against God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and think you’re serving God. You are serving god, but it’s the other one you’ve made your master and not the Master Himself! People have fooled themselves into thinking their wrongs are right. Your wrongs will never be right in the sight of God! I don’t care if man follow you; your wrongs are wrong! They will always be wrong until you decide to choose right over wrong!

I will never stand for, support, or follow anyone who professes Christ yet live a life against Him. I will not condone your wrong in no shape, form, or fashion. I can love you, but I will never love your wrongdoings and I will not support what you do.

If you’re going to live for Jesus; live for Him! If you’re not then don’t, it is your choice, but stop acting as if you’re living for Him to please man, because God sees and knows what you’re doing. He’s the Author and Finisher of your fate. He wishes for you to live for Him and so do I, however, the decision is yours. Just because you preach or teach about Him doesn’t mean you’re living for Him. Just because you sing about Him or talk about Him doesn’t mean you’re living for Him. To serve Jesus is a lifestyle change and it’s 24 hours a day. It’s not a part time or sometime thing, it’s a 24 hour thing. You know why? If you’re doing it sometime then you’re against Him and not for Him. Living this way puts you at risk of losing your soul. He’s “coming in the twinkling of an eye and like a thief in the night.” If you’re caught in your state of pretense you will have lost your soul to the world. Nothing or no one in this world is worth it!

A lot of what people do is out of a learnt behavior. They mock God when He is not to be mocked and they mimic the true Saints. They learn how a true Saint conduct His or Herself and they mimic it. They mimic the spirit in all types of ways. They do what they think is pleasing in the eyes of man. Problem for these types of people is God sees it all and it’s not pleasing to Him. He’s weeping at the falling away of people who claim to be servers of Him. No matter how bad things in this world has become, people are still choosing the world.

I pray people turn their lives over before it’s too late. Stand up and on the Word of God without fear and with honesty and truth! I don’t care what it looks like or feels like God is still in control and in charge. The road isn’t always easy nor is it always rough. We are never alone! The Bible says “for the race isn’t given to the swift nor the strong, but to the one who endures to the end.” You can’t stay in a race you’re not in! All of the picking Him up and putting Him down don’t work and won’t work! All of the sometimes serving Him don’t work and won’t work!

You can’t be double minded, or lukewarm; either getting your ears tickled or tickling the ears of others. You only fool yourself NEVER the Father, Son, or the Holy Spirit. We can’t be just hearers of the Word, but we MUST be hearers and doers of the Word. Stop being brainwashed and bamboozled into serving man, because every man’s knee must someday bow.

If you’re trying to straddle a fence then you’re being lukewarm. If you try to live for both the world and Jesus; truth is you’re only living for the world! I’m telling you without regret or doubt you can’t love the Lord and serve the Lord if you’re still a part of what the world has to offer. In your mind you may think you, but in reality you can’t! You’re fooling yourself! Sometimes people will not tell you about yourself. They will talk about you behind your back. I am telling you and the world if you are living this lie that is exactly what it is; a lie! You’re lying to yourself! God is not pleased with lukewarm people. He’s already told us He will “sprew” you from His mouth.

Please don’t be one He turns away and tell you to “depart from me you worker of iniquity for I know you not!’ This moment right here may be your last chance to get it right! Get it right with Jesus, get a daily prayer life, get a personal relationship with Him, love Him above all, and most importantly live for Him; in Jesus name I pray! You can’t get to the Father unless you go through the Son. You can’t get to the Son if you don’t have a personal relationship with Him. Romans 10:9 is only the first step, but it’s the most important first step!

False Teachings and Part-time Relationships

Standard

I heard a very famous radio host talking last weekend and it sickened me the false information he was giving. One thing I have learnt is if you’re well known you can say “boo” and people will latch on, like it, love it, etc; all because the person is famous or well known. I think it’s the dumbest and most shallow thing people do. We see it all of the time. A well known person gets to speak at graduations, in the schools, on TV etc. They get all of these different platforms simply because they are well known. This doesn’t mean they know what they are talking about. I’ve seen and heard it a million times.

Okay, back to the reason for this post. This radio host was telling the listening audience they need a relationship with God. He said it doesn’t matter what they are doing in their lives they need a relationship with God. He went on to say how he’s off the mark, etc, but he still has a relationship with God.

I don’t care who you are or who you think you are. You can’t do whatever you want and think God is okay with it. If you think because you reference God in your speaking or you say God every now and then it’s cool and you’re on His side you are dead wrong! Throwing God the Father and His Son Jesus in your conversations every now and then doesn’t mean you’re living for Him or that you have a relationship with Him.

If your relationship with Jesus isn’t personal and 24/7 then you don’t really have one. A relationship with Him should always be personal and constant. It means changed ways! If a person truly loves Him then the person will live for Him. You’re either in or out. I don’t care what you THINK; there are only 2 options (for Him or against Him). As Saints of God we MUST turn from our old ways. We can’t be a lukewarm, double minded person, thinking it’s all good with the Lord. We can’t serve Him when we want to be see by others yet lifestyles are against Him. As Saints it isn’t part time, it’s a full time position. Those who try to do it part time are only fooling self. Part time means you’re lukewarm. I won’t apologize for the truth!

People can follow up behind folks who are leading them wrong and find themselves in hell right along with those folks. You must have a relationship with Jesus, because you can’t get to the Father unless you go through His Son Jesus. Jesus made it possible for the Holy Spirit to be with us leading and guiding our steps. This can’t happen when people are choosing their own paths and aren’t willing to give up their old ways. Individuals who serve Him part time are at risk of losing their souls. They are at risk of hell!

Knowing about Jesus and knowing Jesus are two different things. Many people know of him due to being taught by parents, friends, loved ones, and others, but to have a personal relationship is different. It means you know Him! A person MUST love Him and if you love Him you will live for Him, this nurtures the relationship daily. It helps a person to move from milk to meat!

A person can have a relationship with anyone, it doesn’t mean it’s personal and it doesn’t mean you love the individual. This is the relationship many have with Jesus; which isn’t truly a relationship. To have a true relationship with God the Father and His Son Jesus it must be because of the love you have for them. It must be personal, constant, and intentional. To live for Him means you have become a new creature. Those who do it part time find they fall for anything and they are easily enticed, persuaded, brainwashed, etc to do as the world do. They conform easily to the ways of the world. They have their eyes on man and not on Jesus! They go along to get along and they shut up instead of standing up. This way of living puts people at risk for hell!

People live all of their lives in and out of relationships, yet they don’t try to truly develop that relationship with Jesus, because they don’t want to give up their old ways. They are people pleasers and are not trying to please the Father which art in Heaven!

What you do is up to you! What anyone does is up to the individual, however, as well known individuals or leaders in general please stop giving wrong information to others. If you don’t want to give up the world then that is on you, but don’t try to persuade others to be like you! There is absolutely no comprising when serving the Father and the Son!

The Jaws of Fear

Standard

It is very sad how people allow fear to land them in bad situations and relationships. People get into relationships they shouldn’t be in then they allow fear to keep them there. None of us can get back the time we given to being bound to and tied up by fear. In a relationship the other person may be a part of the issue, but the real problem is the person who allows fear to keep them where they shouldn’t be or where they don’t want to be. If you’re afraid to leave for ANY reason; I always say you’ve stayed too long. People fool themselves into believing they are/were blindsided. Keep lying to yourself! Individuals at some point always show you who they really are. It never fails! Many miss the signs because they are blind by their feelings and emotions. By the time they can see they are then bound by fear, (to leave, to stay, to start over, to be alone, etc).

I don’t care what it stems from fear is crippling and debilitating to anyone who gives in to it. It affects many facets of a person’s life when they allow fear to control them. There are many people stuck in unhappy and unhealthy relationships, on unhappy jobs, in careers they are unhappy with, afraid to change, afraid to try something different, afraid to be alone, afraid to start over, afraid of what others will say or do, etc, etc. They totally give in to fear. It controls them, keeping them stagnant and unable to move forward.

Whatever or whoever you give your power to means you have none. It means the person or thing controls you. Fear keeps people dependent instead independent. When you fear your fear is evident in your actions. This empowers others to maintain control over you! It gives power to the fear in you to keep you where you are. People develop anxiety etc due to fear! This can lead to other issues mentally, emotionally, and physically.

The ONLY person can change your situation is you. When you give your power to anything no matter what it is (person or thing), it becomes stronger than you! Stop giving what belongs to you away due to fear. Your power belongs to you! You were meant to be strong and the very best version of yourself! No one other than Jesus the Son and God the Father completes you, but you! If you choose not to believe then at least believe in yourself! You are the only person who can complete you!

Many people look for love and validation in others when they don’t have it in self! It oftentimes keep people where they are. People allow their issues and the fear of change to hold them down and back! Today is a new day. Tell fear no more! Talk it right on out of your life. Let it take all of the junk it has set up in your life keeping you stuck right along with it! Those who believe in Jesus allows the devil free reign when they give into fear, because God’s love conquers ALL fear! If you’re a believer then you must believe it! Otherwise you allow the devil victory in your life. He doesn’t have no more power than you give! That goes for the devil in ANY form he may appear!

Take back your power, take back your life!

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!
