Choosing Man’s Way Over God’s Way

Standard

Many people of the world today have chosen man’s way over thus sayeth the Lord. Everything God says is the right way, man is saying it’s the wrong way. Everything God says is the wrong way, man is saying it’s the right way. What’s even sadder is people don’t fear or respect God. They are boldly doing what they want to do! This world has adopted the “Burger King” concept of “have it your way.” There will be repercussions and consequences for all things against the Son and the Father!

Jesus died for our sins, so we don’t have to die for them. God could have easily brought him down from the cross. He stayed there for you, you, you, and I. Yet, this world is right back in the same predicament of the Bible days. People are doing whatever, whenever, and wherever. They have no shame about anything they do or say! To put icing on the cake, many of these people profess Christ as their Lord and Savior! Lies, lies, lies and people who do this know they are telling lies, lies, lies! I’m not trying to spiritually shame anyone, I’m trying to help you realize you need to get it right before it’s too late!

Time is moving right along, it waits for no man. However the most beautiful thing is even though time is moving quickly, everyday we get to see is a day given for us to change our ways and come to the Lord. It is time given to stop mocking God and playing church. People mock God and play church to please man. They go to church out of tradition, but also out of dedication to man, yet they have no commitment or dedication to Jesus. No one can know the Father if they have no relationship with the Son!

Many people don’t want to give up this world; they think they’ll miss something if they do. They are very correct, they will miss something detrimental to them, which is Heaven trying to live for this world! Many people have and are falling away, because they have no roots. Many people want to straddle a fence that doesn’t exist.

I don’t care who YOU think you are or what pedal stool you’ve been put on. All of our knees will someday bow. No one is above the Master! We will all give an account of what we’ve done against God. There are only 2 roads to take; the right one or the wrong one. Many willfully choose the wrong road, because they don’t want to give up the wrong for the right. They don’t want to let go of things of this world.

You can’t take with you your old ways on a new journey with the Lord, you have to put them down. You must let them completely go and not turn back to pick them up. If a person truly wants to serve God they can and they will give up this world. To love Him, you must live for Him, period! Those who don’t want to give up their old ways are the first ones to say you’re judging them. They are the first ones who will say no one is perfect. These are old, old, excuses to stay where you are in the world.

I will not tell you a lie, not one time have I desired to go back to my old ways. When I came up out of my mess, I was thankful how God kept me safe from all dangers seen and unseen, natural and supernatural. I went through some stuff, but He kept me. It could have been me many times, but yet He kept me. I wouldn’t turn back for nothing or no one! God has been too good to me! When I was in the world I thought I was having fun, I did what I wanted to do. However, when I developed my relationship with Jesus, I realized all the things I had done against Him. It made me weep, I still weep when I think about where He brought me from! I can’t turn back, nothing is back there for me. I know for a fact 100% people can live Holy lives if they choose.

The devil has his agenda and has had it from the start. He makes things appealing to the eyes, he tickles the ears, he gives people this and that and sadly some think what the devil gave them is from the Lord, and he makes things glitter to look like gold when it isn’t. He is doing his job of lying and deceiving people. He pulls all types of arsenals out of his bag of tricks to make people think the world is a better option. Nothing a person gains in this world has value in Heaven or hell. We will take nothing with us when we leave this world. How we chose to live determines our eternal home. Yet, people are still choosing this world as if they will be here forever. No, we all will someday depart this world! People must get ready for this transition. We all have a chance right now to get it right while the blood is running warm through our veins.

If He Saved You, No one can Take It Away

Standard

There has been controversy about once saved always saved. Personally I believe we are. Only Jesus saves! Romans 10:9 tells us what we must do to be saved. Once we make the vow we are saved. What man has authority to take from you what God has given you? Not one!

I firmly believe people backslide back into the world, but in their hearts they know the way. They turn from Jesus, but the seed has already been planted. When we become saved, we accept the seed planted into us. It is like we are birth from the womb into salvation. No man can take our being saved away, because no man had the power or authority to give us salvation.

I believe this is why the Bible says “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” When we give ourselves to Christ it is the beginning of a life time journey. However, for most to include myself we receive salvation, but then we turn to the world. I got saved at 12. What did I know, nothing? I was well into my late 30’s early 40’s before I truly adopted a relationship with Jesus Christ. I repented for all of my sins and for turning back into the world. I was overjoyed, because I know He was with me through all of my mess. It could of been me dead and gone many times, but He kept me covered. I can’t ever thank Him enough!

I believe a person can repent and go back to Jesus, because they never lost their salvation, they lost their way! What they accepted when they got saved is in them. Somewhere in life they got off the path and turned back to the world. It doesn’t mean they forgot what they accepted into their life. Anyone can go back to Christ by repenting and asking Him back into their life. He never leaves us, we leave Him! He’s always waiting to welcome us back!

There are a lot of people who think they’ve messed up so bad they can’t go back. I don’t care what you’ve done you can always go back to Jesus. “He is the “way, the truth, and the light, no man cometh unto the Father, but by Him.” To make it to the Kingdom to meet our Creator (Our Father God), we have to believe in His Son Jesus (Romans 10:9).

Never allow anyone to deter you from going back to Jesus, your very soul is dependent on it. You can do so at anytime and anywhere. The problem with many people is once saved they think it gets them into Heaven. Wrong! It gives you salvation, it gives you the opportunity to know him personally and to live for Him. Jesus already paid the price for us when He died on the Cross! It doesn’t give you a seat in the Kingdom. We have to work for it. We must be born again, which means repentance of our sins and letting go of the ways of this world.

Too many want to hang on to the world, whilst professing Christ. These people are liars! You can’t serve God and the adversary the devil! You’re either for Jesus or against Him there are no other options. It saddens me the many people I know who profess with their mouths one thing, yet they live another. No one can truly love Jesus when they live this way. To love Him is to live for Him, point blank! We must be born again and we must live holy. We can’t pick Him up when we feel like following Him and put Him down when we feel like following the world. That is NOT how it works!

Jesus paved the way for salvation. He paid the price for us to have the opportunity and the ability to live holy lives. It is people who do not want this beautiful blessing. Sadly many people love the world more. They want affiliation, but no true relationship with Him. It doesn’t work! We must have the connection through a daily personal relationship with Him. We must be about our Father’s business every single day all day long. We must walk by faith and not by sight and we must allow the Holy Spirit as our lead and guide. It teaches us and strengthens us so that we can maintain and live holy lives. This is free to all who choose it! Still many talk it, but they don’t walk it! If we say we love Him we must live for Him, not sometimes, but all of the time!

To Love Him Is To Live For Him

Standard

Point blank and the bottom line! People are full excuses and they are quickly offended at the truth! Although many proclaim Him, they are offended at the Word of God. Lies!!! There is no way a person who say they love the Lord and are truly about His business will be offended at the Word. People are falling away left and right, because they never had any roots. They are about lip service, but no service to Jesus.

How can a person who profess Christ in their life always defend someone who willfully go against the Word of God. This type of person is fooling his or herself. No way it should be happening. People who are always at the defense of those who are doing things clearly against the Word of God are NOT on the side of Jesus.

People have the right to do what they want to do. However, when you try to convince me it’s right when I know it’s against the Word of God, you’re wrong! I’m not trying to convince anyone of anything, debate, or judge; I’m only standing for what is right and for the Word of God! Those who are offended need to check self, because you’re not serving who you say you are. If you’re agreeing with something against God’s Word, then you’re against God, period!

Many folks want to claim Him, but live any kind of way. They want to claim Him, yet follow up behind things that are against God. They are ONLY damning and fooling self! You can NOT say you love Him, yet go against Him. Well you can say it, but you would be lying if you’re defending wrong! To love Him is to live for Him. There’s no other way. It’s either this OR that! Those are the ONLY two options. It’s your choice!

I don’t care who you are or anything else, if what you do is against Jesus the Son it’s against God the Father. You can’t bypass Jesus, because through Him is the ONLY way to the Father. Yes, people have the right to live how they choose. To stand on the Word of God isn’t condemning or judging, it’s faithfully and firmly standing on the truth of God’s Word.

Individuals are VERY quick to say you’re judging and no one’s perfect. Excuses, excuses, excuses, which gets you nowhere! You can’t grow if you keep making excuses to remain where you are. You can’t be Team Jesus if you’re “professing Him with your lips, but hearts are far from Him.” It’s NOT possible. People are doing it, but the reality of it is even if you gained the whole world you STILL lose!

People must STOP being wishy washy and doubled minded. People must stand on God’s Word if you love Him, no matter what or who! A lot of people say what they think others want to hear (tickling the ears). No, if you’re a true believer than you should be upholding the Word of God and NOT going along to get along. That will get you nowhere, but in hell!

God Isn’t Dead People Are

Standard

I’m here to tell you He yet lives! God isn’t dead, the church isn’t dead, but millions of people are dead! Most think just because they have breath in their bodies and are moving around they are alive. Naturally they are alive, however; if they aren’t serving the one and only true living God they are dead! They are dead men/women walking, the true zombies in this world, dead an don’t even know it! People are all into zombie movies and the ridiculous movie style zombie apocalypse, but fail to realize we are living amongst the walking dead right now! Those zombie movies are fake, but we are already living amongst real life walking dead. It’s scarier than any movie. These people are subject to do anything! People are dead, because they don’t know the Lord Jesus, our Father God, and no true experience with the Holy Spirit!

The Bible says “to gain the whole world and lose your soul.” No one has to, it is all by choice. No matter how awful or dark, people still love the world more than they do the true and living God. They serve many other gods, but they won’t commit to the one and only true God.

I’m not here to bash or to impose my belief on anyone. I’m only here to give a message. People can and will do whatever they choose. You can choose the Father and the Son, or you can choose whatever you desire. My job and mission is the give what I know I must, which is the unadulterated truth. God wishes for none of us to perish.

Many people don’t or won’t believe. It is their choice. However, those who claim to believe and are living a life unpleasing to the Father are damning themselves; for they have chosen the world. It doesn’t matter what they profess with their tongues. It doesn’t matter that they act the part or look the part. What matters if they are living it!!! Those who are only performing lip service are dead in Christ! They think they know Him, but their actions prove they don’t! This goes for the preacher, teacher, prophet, faithful church goer, apostle, bishop, evangelist, or whomever professes Him with hearts far from Him. They are the walking dead!

Jesus lives, He died for us all. We all have the same opportunity for salvation, because he has no respect of persons. It is us, the people who put limits and boundaries on Him. As humans we segregate and separate as a form of division and oppression, but it is NOT of the Father or the Son! He doesn’t have any respect of persons. It is we ourselves who must decide which side to serve. It is freewill! There are only two choices (right or wrong) Jesus or the adversary the devil. We can’t serve both!

People love the world much more than they do God. They act as if they don’t come up out of the world they would be missing something. In fact they are correct!! If they DON’T, they will be missing the mark and their chance for Heaven! They will have “gained the whole world only to lose their souls.” It’s a sad shame!

God is the same God, Jesus is the same Son, and the Holy Spirit is still available to all who believe! He’s still in the blessing business and He’s still working miracles. People have no power because they haven’t activated their power given to them by God. People must learn to fast and pray. We all need a daily prayer life, but we must learn to fast too! Fasting is important for our spiritual growth.

I found out long ago people are upset with the truth. They want it sugarcoated or watered down. I don’t do either. I can give my opinion all day, but at the end of the day, the truth is the truth! This world is getting worst day by day. People have no love in their hearts. They will kill at the drop of a dime as if it means nothing. They’re taking their own lives like it’s nothing. I’m talking about people who don’t know God and those who claim to know Him. I expect those who don’t know the Lord to do anything, but for those who claim to know Him, their actions tells the truth. In doing the Lord’s business we sometimes will have to stand alone, people don’t want to hear you or see you. I’m even talking about those who CLAIM to love Him so much! That’s fine by me, because it’s not about me anyways, it’s all about God the Father and Jesus the Son!

Darkness can’t dwell with the Light! Think about it, even on a bright and sunny day, when the clouds roll in for a storm they block the sunlight! Both can’t dwell at the same time. The moon can’t shine the same time the sun shines. That’s how it is with us. We can’t live for Jesus and the adversary (the Devil) at the same time. You will love one more than the other. If you are trying to serve both, you’re truly only serving one and that’s the devil. We either live for Jesus or die for the devil. This is why people who profess Christ are caught doing all kinds of stuff they know they shouldn’t be doing. They do what’s right according to man, in the eyes of man, for man to see. They forget the one they CLAIM to serve sees it all. Therefore they are ALWAYS caught dead on the spot! I’m writing the word caught, because NOTHING gets pass God. Man may miss a few things, but God sees it all! He yet live!

Nobody to Man Somebody to God

Standard

Sadly we are all looked at and judged according to who we know and who we are to people. Many people don’t get opportunities because other people don’t consider them as “somebody.” They may be as talented or even more talented, but if they’re not well known they are considered a “nobody.” People miss out on what great individuals have to offer when they categorize individuals this way. I think this is one of the worst things people can do to one another and it’s a very shallow way of thinking.

People of the world make it all about who they know. They want to be associated with well known people. They gravitate to people they believe are well known. Why? I believe it’s because of what individual’s feel about self. They think they need to be associated with someone with who is well known for their own recognition or just to say they know the person. It’s sad! A lot of people invest a lot of time in others, but none in Jesus or developing self. They focus on what man says, does, and thinks.

When individuals like people according to their statuses it’s how people end up with big heads thinking they are better than others. It’s how people end up high on man made pedal stools. Many begin to act as if they know everything, simply because of the pedal stools they’ve been put on. Some become gods to the people following them. None of it impresses or pleases God the Father.

No title or status changes what’s inside. It’s why we continuously see people of status from all walks of life doing stupid stuff. Many folks busy trying to rub elbows with individuals because of their statuses or titles when many of those individuals have as many or more issues than they do. Facts!!!

In the sight of man as long as they consider you to be “somebody” they love you. You can say anything or do anything and people will eat it up. Yet another person who isn’t considered as “somebody” can say or do say the exact same thing and people will have nothing to say. I think it’s very ridiculous!

God doesn’t look at us this way, He has no respect of persons. With Him there’s only one big happy family. We are all His Children, but we individually choose whether to be Children of God. He allots us this choice! All the other titles the world wants to give people means absolutely NOTHING to Jesus the Son and God the Father! We may have favor for something, it doesn’t mean God favors you over anyone else. He does not! He doesn’t look at us this way! In Him there’s no big I’s and little u’s!

People want validation from man. People want to feel as if they’re a part of something when they associate themselves with known people. In my opinion those who feel this way need to work on self. Stop being shallow minded and accept people for who they are, period! Stop looking at statuses and positions; choosing to like a person according to what they are considered to be to the world.

When we die none of what is gained here on earth will matter. None of it will matter when we leave this life. If you haven’t served the Master by living according to his Word, nothing else will matter. People keep on living as if they will never die. People are too busy trying to gain man’s approval and validation, yet they aren’t concerned with living pleasing in the sight of God!

Don’t worry about man thinking you’re a nobody, you are somebody to God. He loves you! Those same people the world deems “somebody” will someday depart this life like everyone else! There’s no bartering, bargaining, or buying your way out of leaving this world. Not one single person has the power to stop it! How well a person is known won’t stop it!

If you continue to be caught up in who man says you are or who man says someone else is; you won’t ever be able to be who God wants you to be! Stop worrying about what man says and focus on pleasing Lord Jesus!! He loves us and doesn’t want any of us to lose our soul’s. The world cares about pleasing the flesh, God cares about spiritual house that our physical houses will someday depart!

Christianity Is Not a Cult, It’s How It’s Taught

Standard

I know I’m stepping on some toes. Good!! People need to wake up! I’m so sick and tired of hearing people say they left Christianity for this and that reason. Stop making excuses; you left because you were persuaded to by your god or by someone else! You left because it is what you wanted to do. Stop blaming people, the church, and Christianity! When you put your salvation in the hands of your leaders and other people then negativity and disappointment is what you’re bound to get!

The Bible says “everyone who cries Lord Lord will not enter the Kingdom.” You know why? It’s because they aren’t living according to His will. They are the hearers, not the hearers and doers. They are the double minded, they are the wishy washy people, they are the ones trying to straddle the none existing fence, and they are the ones mocking God. They are the leaders and those who warm the pews Sunday after Sunday. The leaders teach well and they act the part very well, but many aren’t living according to God’s Word. The one’s sitting under their leaders are going to church to please their pastor’s and NOT God the Father and Jesus the Son! They are blind by the truth!

People must wake up and stop blaming the church when you SHOULD have the church within you! Where you attend or go is ONLY a place of worship to gather and fellowship. The church is within a Saint twenty four hours a day.

Many people go to churches of man and NOT churches of God, then they want to blame the church for their disappointments and bad spirits in the churches. Most churches of today are businesses about the mighty dollar and NOT our Mighty God and Lord and Savior! Churches of today allow anything into the church. The churches are ran more worldly than anything else. This alone tells you it’s not of God! Leaders are living any kind of way, speaking all kinds of trash from their mouths, and doing everything they know is against God. Yet, people are sitting under their leaderships praising and worshipping these leaders. They can’t see anything wrong with what’s going on and they are offended when you tell them the truth! If it’s not scripture then it’s NOT of God! When people know Jesus for themselves they should know better and do better! It’s not about pleasing man, it’s all about pleasing our Lord and Savior! Stop getting angry because of man when it is who many of you are worshipping and praising. When you worship and praise man expect to be let down!

Many church leaders are controlling their members. They literally tell them what they can and can not do. It’s because they are being taught as if it’s a cult. They are under the leadership of someone who isn’t under the leadership of Christ. When leaders make it all about self and material prosperity they leave out Christ! They only say enough to make people think it’s about Jesus when “the proof is in the pudding.” People must wake up and read the Bible for self! Don’t go to hell following people who aren’t following Christ. Stop allowing yourselves to be brainwashed and bamboozled! False leaders will definitely be charged, but you too will pay the prize for following him or her!

There are many people who can’t see the truth, because as I have said many times before, they’ve made their pastors their masters! People are led astray due to emotions and feelings about their leaders, churches, etc. Their leaders are saying things to “tickle their ears,” but doing nothing to feed their souls. Your soul salvation isn’t the responsibility of your leader, because he or she can’t give you salvation. Your salvation is your own responsibility and it’s free; the price has already been paid by Jesus Christ! Your leader knees will someday bow before the Father and the Son just like yours! Don’t let your leaders lead you to hell!

Will you continue to believe and put all your trust in man or will you begin to truly trust and believe in God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit? Don’t allow your leaders, anyone else, or anything to lead you to hell. The devil has his angels and they are working for him doing whatever they can to get you to lose your soul for this world. Don’t let it happen to you. Stand up for Jesus and stand firmly on HIS Word and NOT the word of man! People willfully are being brainwashed, because they subject themselves to the word of man and NOT God the Father! People have given their leaders a position belonging ONLY to the True and Living God the Father Almighty!

You Built the Devil’s Playground

Standard

Yep!!!! Many people are going through it. There are many individuals who willfully and freely submit to the devil. They allow him into their lives one way or another. They entertain him and then think he won’t want to play. If you entertain him he will enter happily into your life. He comes in all kinds of forms.

Every individual knows their own weaknesses. Well, the devil knows them too, because most of you don’t fight; you eagerly, willfully, and freely submit to the flesh. Every time temptation comes many people fall prey of their own freewill no matter how wrong. This is not the will of God. The devil won’t or can’t flee if you keep giving him a playground to play in.

There are many people who invites the devil in then when they are beat up by the devil they want to blame God. Stop blaming God for all of the things you willfully choose to partake in. Stop giving him your power! Activate the power in you!

The devil makes things look wonderful. He glams things up for you making you think the glitter is gold when it’s simply glitter. He makes things look good to you, when they aren’t good for you. He makes things feel good to you, when they aren’t good for you. He makes you fascinated and fixated on titles, labels, statuses, money, positions, how people look, and material things, and to many people those things are highly important. Many of you idolize people making them your gods. There are also many people who idolize different things making those things their gods. They give their power to people and things, but can’t handle the let down they get from them. Afterwards they are angry and want to blame God. The true and living God isn’t pleased. There is to be “no other god before Him!”

The devil makes people think the world has everything to offer them when it has nothing to offer. If you gain the world, you lose your soul. It’s not a fair trade at all, because whatever a person gain is only temporary. When you die you can’t take ANYTHING with you! Yet, people are still trying to build their treasures up here on earth; when the Bible says not to!

People get angry at God when the bottom falls out of their lives for things they allowed in. They can’t take it when the storms rage out of control over things they willfully allowed. They are angry at God when things don’t go their way after they’ve made their bad choices and decisions.

What looks good can kill you! What feels good can kill you! What someone else has shouldn’t be why you want to be with them, because everyone should have their own security and not look to someone for it. Having your own prevents others from having power over you. Trying to love someone else when you don’t love yourself is plain immature! People know your weaknesses and will seek whom they can devour. Everything that glitters isn’t gold nor is it valuable. It could cost you everything when it has no benefit for you! Babies don’t keep marriages together, however; they are for a lifetime. Nothing you offer a person will make the person love you, they will take from you until you have nothing. Cheating says a lot about the cheater and the person going along with it. You know if a person is cheating, it’s okay for them, but if you go along with it they also know it’s ok for you and right away you’re teaching the person how to treat you! Sex is nothing new, but many risk lives and relationships to get it. Getting with someone just to say you have someone can be costly and deadly. Basing feelings on how someone looks or what they have can also be costly and deadly. All of these and many more are ways people willfully invite the in, because they are led by the flesh. They follow their immature ways of thinking, feelings, and acting. When they do they almost always end up in unhealthy relationships or they are just unhappy period!

The devil loves, loves, loves to see people giving in to him. He gets great joy out of it. He loves even more when people profess Christ yet are living other ways against Christ. He stays right in the playground provided for him. As long as you play with him, he will play with you. He’s glad about it!

You can stomp on the devil’s head. You can resist him and he will flee. I didn’t say he wouldn’t come back, but he will know you’re not one to be messed with. You have to kick him completely out and not allow him any control over you. If you give it, he will take it. The Bible says (the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak). That means although we are flesh and bone, we don’t have to give in and allow the flesh to lead. We can resist temptation! Temptation comes in all kinds of ways, it’s up to each of us to resist it. If you submit you may as well expect anything! However, the Bible says there’s no temptation for which there’s no room to escape. It is up to each of us. Let the devil know your playground has been torn down and he no longer has anywhere to play.
