New Generation, Same God

Standard

I wanted to write about this topic, because some people want to believe because many have chosen the ways of the world, the Bible isn’t applicable today. Lies, lies, lies! I don’t care how much society changes; the Word is the Word! The Word will stand when all else fails.

Everything right is wrong in the eyes of many nowadays and everything wrong is right, this ISN’T the way of our Lord and Savior Jesus or Our Father God. It is the ways of the world which is being played out by those on the devil’s playground. Sooner or later the very master many serve will be bowing before the one and only Master. Although for many it will be too late, they will then see the truth!

I don’t care how much people conform to the ways of the world, God is unchanging. He isn’t changing to conform to us. The Bible and its guidance is unchanging. As individuals we must change to conform to Him. People got it all twisted! In today’s times, many people think the Bible doesn’t apply to them due to their different mindsets. Wrong! It doesn’t matter what people choose to do, the Word is the Word and it supersedes all! Many people go along with whatever suits them at the time. In the Bible days, Jesus never conformed to the people, he sat amongst them, but He didn’t do what they did.

People don’t fall for anything, because they stand for nothing, they fall for anything, because they stand for anything. It took me a while to get it, but God opened my eyes about it. They are like dandelions in the wind, they are all over the place.

People want to do things the way the world does things and they are fooling themselves when they think the Bible doesn’t apply today. The ways of the world are not of God. The things going on today is man’s doing and man’s agenda, NOT God’s! These people can keep believing their lies if they want to, they’re only damning their own souls.

I’ve heard some of my own family members say, this is a new generation, we do things differently. Okay, maybe so, but God is still in charge and no matter how much the people of the world wants to believe what they’re saying is true, it isn’t. It’s a delusional way of thinking. People think they can do what they want to, when they want to, how they want to, to whom they want to and have no repercussions or consequences for their actions. You will reap what you sow! God’s way is the ONLY way; accept it or not!

If Jesus or our Father God changed things to appease people where would we be? If God flip flopped like people do, where would we be? People choose to either live for Him or against Him; whatever choice a person makes is of their own personal will. Many people believe because they’ve adopted what the world has ordained as acceptable the Word no longer applies. Sad, sad, sad! As I’ve always said and written, the devil is on his j-o-b; to kill, steal, and destroy.

God created both Heaven and earth He is ruler over it all, He is ruler over us all, that will not change. People can do what they want to do and believe what they want to believe, God’s Word and His ways will not change. His Word was set before any of us were born into this world. People want to believe it isn’t applicable, because they want to live any kind of way and not be held accountable. We’re all held accountable to man, why don’t people think their not held accountable to God? Man can change whatever they choose to change, God’s Word will still stand and it is unchanging. That goes for the old generation, new generation, and generations to come!

Express Train to Hell

Standard

I don’t know why people are hell bent on going to hell when salvation is free. The world has nothing to offer us, other than death. Don’t get me wrong, while we live we should live positive and prosperous lives. However, we shouldn’t make people or things our gods. A person can lose what they have, friends come and go, health fails, family can walk away, but God our Father and Jesus His Son are always there and the WORD will ALWAYS be a guide for us. It is unfailing and it will stand when all else fails.

People are too focused on building their legacies and kingdom’s on earth when after they die it’s done. Sure people may talk about you after you die, but what will it benefit you??? NONE at all. Many live to gain the whole world only to end up losing their souls. People are so desperate for fame and fortune they are selling their souls to the devil, literally. It’s crazy!! The devil have some power, but God has all power to include over the devil.

Many are more worried about how their physical homes look then how their spiritual home is looking. People will one day leave their physical homes (their houses and their bodies), but the spiritual part of them is what will live on. How people choose to live now while on earth determines where they will spend eternity.

People are too worried about pleasing man. They want success so badly they will do anything for it. Many in the world are either idolizing the rich and famous or selling their souls to become rich and famous. The rich is only trying to get richer. Many think they have everything when they have NOTHING! Money isn’t the root of evil it is THE LOVE OF MONEY! The love of money is destroying many and causing people to sell their souls to the devil. They sell out to the devil in hopes of achieving fame and fortune when one day they will die and leave all those possessions behind.

Not only the rich and famous are selling their souls anyone who isn’t on the Jesus’s side is selling their souls. Church leaders are selling their souls because they are trying to be on top. They have turned sanctuaries into places God didn’t intend for them to be (selling and all kinds of things in the churches). They are trying to have the biggest homes, churches, cars, etc. It makes no sense. There’s nothing wrong with prospering, but when you’re not teaching spiritual prosperity and how to receive salvation, how to be born again, and live holy; something is wrong!!! If all churches are teaching is material prosperity; something is wrong! They must teach people how to live in a hell filled world and how to stay rooted and on Jesus’s side when satan and his cronies are trying to pull them in their direction. Satan is already defeated, but people don’t realize it, because they are too busy worshipping their leaders and NOT Jesus. Some don’t know the Word because they only see it on Sundays. This is sad!!!

Individuals are selling their souls everyday, because they profess one thing and live another. They are doing everything against God, yet profess him at the same time. It’s not possible; they are liars and the truth isn’t in them. If you’re doing things against God, you’re wrong! Remember, you can’t serve Jesus and the devil too. The reason many aren’t ready to give up the world is because they think they will miss something. They are right!!! They will miss the opportunity for Heaven, because they are on an express train bound for hell.

Pretending to love and serve God is worldwide. Many “praise Him from their lips, but hearts are far from Him.” These people are only fooling themselves. This journey isn’t a game of hopscrotch; you can’t skip and hop all over the place. Hearts and minds must be about our Father’s business not when we feel like it, but all of the time.

I can’t speak for no one, but myself. I know the life I’ve led. I know the person I once was and the person I am now. I wasn’t ever wild etc, but I did do some things I shouldn’t of like everyone else. I thank God so much for keeping me through it all. It makes me cry every time I think about how he kept me. He has literally saved my life from death on a few occasions. All I can think is it could have been me more than once. I thank Him for covering me. I thank Him for giving me the sense to plant the seed in my children. They are grown now, but they know the way. What they choose is on them, but I know they know the way, period! I’m glad I got off of the express train to hell and got on the glory train bound for Heaven. Thank you Jesus!!!tee o

There is no Fear in Jesus

Standard

I wanted to talk about this, because so many people claim to love Jesus and claim to follow Jesus. However, their walk isn’t aligning with their talk. Too many people are stuck in bad situations out of fear. Not only concerning relationships, people are very fearful because of what’s going in the world today. Loving and serving God doesn’t line up with being in fear.

Don’t fear, fear is the trick of the enemy. Fear open doors to other things not of God. Don’t get me wrong; things are scary, but it doesn’t mean you have to fear. Fear keeps a person in a bad state of mind. It keeps people fixated and stuck. People must stop professing Jesus the Son and God the Father, yet are consumed with fear. These types of people are allowing what is happening in the world to keep them in bondage. They are allowing people and things to keep them in bondage out of fear.

God wants us to be brave and strong. He wants us to believe He is who He say He is (The Great I AM). He wants us to know no matter what it looks like we are never alone. He’s with us always. He doesn’t want us to fall into fear, because it is the trick of the enemy. Remember the devil’s job is to lie, fool, deceit, into killing, stealing, and destroying.

People must let the devil know he’s a defeated foe. If a person doesn’t believe they have the power and authority to send the devil on his way, the devil will continue to mess with them. Stop allowing the devil to toy and play in your life. Kick him in his butt and send him on his way! Speak to him and let him know you don’t below to him, you have no parts of him, you are the property of God the Father and His Son Jesus. Let the devil know he can’t reside with you, he has to go, in the name of Jesus! He knows how to play on your weaknesses. This is why it’s very important people strive to grow spiritually, stay in the Word, get a daily prayer life, and get a daily relationship with our Father who art in Heaven.

Far too many profess it, but don’t live. If a person is doing this they are NOT serving Jesus and the Father. You can’t live any type of way you choose and think it’s okay with Jesus; it is not! Remember it always goes back to either you’re for Him or against Him. Think about it, which side or you on? If you’re not on God the Father and His Son Jesus then you’re a dead person walking. Faking won’t help you to make it. You have to be real in your quest to see the King!!!

In Times Like These

Standard

There is a song which says “in times like these we need a Savior, in times like these we need anchor, be sure, be very sure, your anchor holds and grips the solid rock. That rock in Jesus He is the one, that rock is Jesus the only one, be sure, be very sure, your anchor holds and grips the solid rock!

It touches my heart because it’s so true. In times like these we need a Savior because the people of today are running around like loose cannons. There’s no patience, love, joy, or peace in the lives of many and it shows.

Don’t be caught up or fooled by people in thinking or believing the ways of the world is right. It’s not!!! I know sometimes it’s frustrating if I say it isn’t I would be lying. I can’t lie to God, therefore there’s no reason for me to lie to anyone. Sometimes it’s feels difficult, but during those times just as I will continue to stand I pray you continue to stand as well. No matter what it looks like; stand on the Word of God. Remember the Word says “the race isn’t given to the swift nor the strong, but to the one who endures to the end.” Hold on, stand fast, be strong, keep your head up God got your back through it all.

Keep on the Armor of God and know no matter what is going on you’re not alone. No matter how out of control the world appears God is in control. Everything has to happen for a reason it’s all a part of the plan. Man thinks they are doing the planning. They think they are getting things in order for their plans, but I’m here to tell you Jesus is the Master planner and He has all the control and power. Man’s plan may take shape, but the plan Jesus has is the Master plan and it supersedes any plan man can make.

Don’t let anything you see, hear, or encounter cause you to fear or want to turn around. Stand firmly and continue to grip the Solid Rock (Jesus). Jesus has no part in fear.

Start operating in the authority and power Jesus gave us. He gave us power over the enemy (whatever it may be). He said “NO weapon formed against us shall prosper.” That means nothing or no one.

Don’t be fooled or sidetracked by the devil, he has a mission to accomplish. Know him for exactly what he is (a deceiver, father of lies, master of tricks, and all kinds of things). When you are on Jesus’s side you know the devil when he comes. The Bible says “if you resist the devil he will flee.” You can’t entertain him at all. You have to send him on his way. He will come in all kinds of forms and through people and things. As a child of God you will know him will he comes. Stand on the Word of God and remember you are NEVER alone!!

Our Lives on Display 24/7

Standard

Imagine your life was on a big screen for the entire world to see. There would be millions of shame and embarrassed people in this world. This post is for my fellow sisters and brothers in Christ.

In the above paragraph I asked you to imagine your life on a big screen for the world to see, because technically it is and it’s always seen by God. There’s nothing hidden and there are no secrets. People are too worried about man seeing their mess, but not at all concerned with the fact God sees it all; ALL OF THE TIME!

In these perilous times, how we choose to live means life or death. We’re literally determining our life sentence right now as we live. There’s no judge or jury, individually we choose our own life sentence. We will either live eternally with the God and His Son Jesus or eternally with satan. How we are living right determines this very thing!

This is no game, it’s real! People who are constantly faking, pretending, hiding, and doing all of the things they think are hidden from man when Jesus sees it all! Nothing done is hidden. Our lives are literally on display 24/7 for Him to see. Four walls don’t hide us from Him.

Far too many people live as hypocrites. They are doing any and everything when they think no one sees or is watching. They think they can live any type of way and by going to church or saying they love Jesus will make it alright. It doesn’t! When you love Him you obey His Word! When you love Him you no longer associate yourself with the ways of the world. You don’t make excuses for doing wrong!

People are ALWAYS talking about being judged. The truth isn’t judging. The problem is people don’t want to change, therefore they don’t want to hear the truth. What’s written in the Word is outlined for each one of us. The guidelines are specific yet people make every excuse in the world not to follow those guidelines. People don’t want to give up their old ways. They don’t want to give up the wrong for the right. They’re holding on to the world when the world will do nothing other than cost them their soul’s. The devil will cost them their soul’s and gladly stand on the sideline cheering them on, because he already knows his place is in hell, period!!! He’s trying to take as many with him as he can. His job is to kill, steal, and destroy and believe me, he is on his JOB!

The devil has the hearts and minds of many people across the globe. Those who don’t understand the power the devil has succumbs to him and most end up doing the unthinkable. There are others who foolishly seek him. They glorify and praise him not understanding what they are doing to themselves. They invite him in and then he takes over and control. This is why people are running amuck all over the world. Every time you turn on the TV some type of violence has occurred. It’s very sad! People falling for anything and everything. He has some power, but God gave us the power and authority to resist the devil; not some of the time, all of the time!

Those who are professing Jesus Christ but aren’t truly living what they profess are right in the midst of it all. They are people who believe and act out of tradition. They are still fornicating, committing adultery, addicted to any and everything, lovers of themselves, idolizing people and things, indulging in all types of sexual immorality, killing, stealing, lying, cheating, and you name it. Many are also depressed, full of anxiety, full of fear, and killing themselves. They are church folks serving from the back door to the pulpits. They are in all capacities in their churches.

Time is out for playing with God and playing church. People who continue to do this are not fooling God, He already knows the true you! Twenty four hours a day our lives are on display for Him to see. He’s weeping, because He wishes for NONE of us to perish. The decision to serve Him is ours to make. We either do or don’t! The same individuals (men or women) people are hiding from will be kneeling before the Father like you, me, and everyone else.

When time is up, don’t mess around and be caught trying to straddle the imaginary fence. It will be too late, because there is no fence to straddle. You’re either for him or against Him! Period, and the end!

Keep Your Mind on Heaven

Standard

I know the world is dark, cold, and evil. Right now it seems out of control. Sad truth is it is going to get even worse than what is currently has become. Keep your head up and your mind on Heaven. No matter how bad it seems, Jesus will always be our Light in this dark world. There is NO darkness in Him!

There are a lot of people who don’t have their roots planted deeply. They are falling away from the Word of God, because they never had their feet planted firmly in the first place. They are allowing themselves to be tricked and deceived. These people are looking at all types of sources yet failing to seek the only SOURCE.

I don’t believe people can convince you to serve someone other than God if you truly believe in Him. It is why it’s super important to get the Word inside of you. Read, study, and implement it into your lives daily. It’s more important now than ever.

There are things to come which will cause many to fear. However, stay focused and remember in Jesus there is no fear! I know we’re flesh and bone, but in the midst of it all Jesus is there and therefore, we have NOTHING to fear! Children of God has nothing to fear! Keep your eyes towards Heaven and stand firmly on the Word. Don’t allow anyone to come around you speaking against God, Jesus, and the Word.

There is so much unbelievable stuff going on behind the scenes. It’s all a ploy to change the hearts of man. There is only one God and He’s our Father who gave the world His ONLY begotten Son Jesus, there’s NO other! Don’t be fooled and don’t entertain any foolishness.

I was talking with someone this past weekend whom I had no clue whatsoever how he felt about Jesus. I rebuked this person and pleaded the blood of Jesus not just for Him, but for me as well for being in this person’s presence. Sadly we were at church. I asked him why do he go if he feel how he feel about Jesus, he said to help his dad run the church. Wow! It wasn’t my church, I was visiting another church. I immediately started praying for His soul before it’s too late for the young man. Many people are walking around feeling exactly like the young man. We are amongst many “wolves in sheep’s clothing. Beware and be aware!

Unbelievers, pretenders, and false messengers are everywhere and I encourage people to be very mindful of what and who they are entertaining. The devil is doing his job to kill, steal, and destroy. The Bible says “resist the devil and he will flee.” See him for what he is and always remember you have the victory in Jesus! “NO weapon formed against me/you in the name of Jesus will prosper!”

There is spiritual warfare raging every second, of every hour, of every day. We are all in the midst of it. The devil is here to destroy your minds, spirits, and bodies. He is the “father of lies and deceit.” Being on Jesus side you are covered and the devil is a “defeated foe.”

You can’t force anyone to believe and please don’t allow them to deceive you into not believing. The enemy is coming on every hand to try an shake you, keep standing on the Word. God is with you!!!

Difference Between a Saint and an Ain’t

Standard

Too many people are NOT walking the walk/living what they profess. As we all know; we are living in perilous times and these times are sure to become far worse than they are now. Playing and pretending to be on the Lord’s side is like playing Russian roulette with your life. No one knows the day nor the hour when our rose is picked from the rose garden of life. It would be a sad shame if a person dies in the midst of their sins and not living what they profess. They will miss Heaven when they had every chance for a place in the Kingdom. No matter how wicked the ways of the world have become, there are many people who still choose the world.

The choice is an individual choice. It’s sad not to know Jesus. In the word He does say He’d rather you be “hot or cold; not lukewarm.” If you’re either or, then at least it’s clear what side you’re on. The travesty is claiming to know Him when you’re living a hypocritical life. These types of people have learned the behaviors of a person who’s living for Jesus. Therefore, they know how to speak and act the part, but they don’t live it.

To live for God and His Son Jesus is a 365 day a year lifestyle. It becomes as natural as breathing. Our hearts become convicted and we die daily to be renewed. We have a personal relationship with Jesus and make Him first in our lives. A person CAN’T do this when they are merely mimicking the lifestyle, because what they are doing is acting what they’ve learned.

On this journey you may lose a lot of people who claim to love you. It’s better to let people go then to go to hell with them. The only way to live the life is by giving up the ways of the world. Too many people want to do both, when the Bible clearly says you can’t. There is no way possible for a person to live for Jesus yet do the things of the world. They can’t intertwine. The Bible say we must be separated from the world, we are peculiar people.

Once a person has changed and on the path of life leading to Heaven everything about them will change. The way they dress, think, feel, and act will change. Yes dress is an important part of it, because when a person live for Jesus they represent Him at all times. You can’t dress the way you once dressed if you used to dress like the world. Some people still want to dress like the world. The places we used to go we shouldn’t want to go there anymore. Some people we used to hang around we have to let them go; it doesn’t mean you don’t love them. The things we used to do, we shouldn’t want to continue to do them. The way we used to think and speak changes. Everything about a person changes, because they become new creatures.

If a person is still doing things the people of the world are doing it’s because they are STILL in the world. There’s no fence to straddle. Meaning, you can’t serve Jesus and partake with the ways of the world. Bottom line, you’re either for Him or against Him. If you’re still doing the things of the world; you’re against Him. Many people will boldly say they are living for Jesus; knowing full well what they are doing isn’t the ways of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They are ONLY fooling themselves right into the pits of hell! Knowing of Jesus and knowing Him for yourself through a personal and daily relationship are two completely different things. To know the Word and NOT live it are two totally different things.

You can’t dance for Jesus and the devil. You can’t fornicate, commit adultery, steal, lie, drink to become drunk, party for Jesus and the devil, and the list goes on. Those are NOT the ways of Jesus. Many people don’t want to give up the ways of the world up, they want to dabble with it and then put on a Holy show when they go to church or are around true Saints. Before and after church they are doing any and everything. The sanctuary is a building people go to gather and worship; we call it the church. The lifestyle of a true Saint is within the individual, it’s a part of who a person becomes. If a person isn’t really on His side the lifestyle they live lines up with the ways of the world and NOT Jesus the Son or God the Father!

The Bible says “seek you first Kingdom of God and His righteousness: and all these shall be added unto you.” Many people who call themselves Saints are seeking everything, but God. They are clearly NOT on His side. They can believe what they want, but the Word is the truth! It is a road map of direction and guidance. Picking and choosing what you want will not make you into a true Saint. You have to choose all of it to live by. You must become Holy people living Holy lives!!

Many people profess Him. They do and say all of the right things in front of people when others are watching. As soon as the chance presents itself they are speaking and acting in ways which are not conducive to the lifestyle of a person living for Jesus. If a person doesn’t have a relationship with the Son, they can’t have one with the Father. Being Saved is awesome, but it’s only the first step, you have to live this lifestyle in order to grow and mature spiritually. No one can do this if they aren’t willing to give up the ways of the world!
