Lean and Depending on Jesus

Standard

Hey, I wanted to try something quite different from my normal posts.

I’ve started podcasting and I want to share an episode with you. When I first started it was very difficult talking with no one to talk back. Yes, as much as I love to talk I found it difficult to do so. Once I started I didn’t like the sound of my voice, it has changed tremendously over the years. Then I thought, it’s yours, “go for it!” It’s me good or bad (me and my flaws).

I added a short song only a couple of minutes or less long, bear with me. I am a songwriter and I love to sing. I never said I had the greatest voice, but it doesn’t keep me from singing. Please take a listen and I hope you enjoy this new type of post. I am singing lead and doing all background vocals in my little studio. I don’t play an instrument well enough to add to my vocals. It is what it is. The vocal post is right after the commercial (which by the way I didn’t know was there).

Through all of your experiences trust Jesus, lean and depend on Him. 5 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all of your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.” Proverbs 3: 5-6

In Church, But No Church In You

Standard

This is the reality of many. They are faithful to church, but are not faithful to Jesus! I posted a long while ago how people go to church solely out of tradition. They have a relationship with the pastor, but no relations with the Master. All of the pastors have to stand before the Master for what they do just as all of the people of their congregations. No one is exempt! You can’t get to Heaven on the coat tail of your pastor and your pastor can’t get their on the coat tail of anyone else.

People fail to understand the church they are attending all over the world is simply a sanctuary, a place to gather and worship, but the actual church is in you. If you’re a true Saint of God then you know you carry this church with you every second, minute, and hour of the day. It’s 24/7 and 365 days a year! If you’re a true Saint the church is in you! You know Jesus dwells in you through the Holy Spirit!

When people rely on their pastors for church they’ve gotten it all wrong. They’ve gotten it all wrong for two reasons. #1 They don’t have relationship with Jesus and #2 their pastors aren’t teaching them about the true and living God and His Son Jesus. They are too busy teaching them material posterity
and not enough about spiritual prosperity. People who look the part but aren’t living the part is doing what worldly people are supposed to do. If people don’t seek the truth for self they will always fall for the untruth! They will normally believe whatever sounds good or whatever makes them feel good! It’s because these types of people are moved by their feelings and emotions and NOT by the anointing of God!

Everyone of us has to answer to God for ourselves. No one can stand in the gap for you! God is not going to accept your excuse when you willfully choose to follow man and not the Word of God!

There is a connection that millions need to make and that is with Jesus! It’s your choice, but as a messenger of Jesus, I must tell you about it. You can’t get to the Father unless you go through the Son. Jesus is the only Mediator between us and God! If people are not plugged into this source then no connection is made!

Jesus Loves Us Despite Our Sins

Standard

This is true, but He doesn’t love our sins. People will do everything and anything and think because God loves us He will look over or dismiss our sins. Wrong! That isn’t the way it works. If you don’t believe in Jesus, God, or the Holy Ghost then living a controversial lifestyle is expected. However, when you are supposedly living for the Lord your lifestyle shouldn’t be controversial. The problem is way too many live controversial lifestyles and are offended when you tell them about themselves. It’s because they are for the world and not Jesus!

If a person thinks being loved by God means they aren’t held accountable for their sins they are dead wrong! Although He loves us He doesn’t give us a pass on our sins. We are expected to be peculiar people who live a certain type of way. We can’t say we love Him while living any kind of way. We can’t say we love Him and continue to live sin filled lives. If we Love God then we will live for Him. Our lives will change completely and totally! We won’t do what we used to do, we won’t think how we used to think, we won’t speak how we used to speak, the places we go and people we hang out with changes, etc, etc! We become new creatures in Christ. The best part about it is we don’t want any parts of the world! If as a Saint of God, a true Christian you are not a new creature; then you’re not a true Saint or true Christian. Period! There’s no in between!

Living for God means we should be walking by Faith and not by sight! It means we are both hearers and doers of the Word. We will live Holy lives. We are saved, born again, and Holy Ghosted filled. Many claim it but it’s not the truth and the lifestyles people live tells the truth of who side they are really on. Those who are pretending are imposters and their eyes are on man/their gods; NOT God the Father and His Son Jesus!

Many people lie about it, because they are man pleasers. They do what they do and speak as they do to please man. They mock and mimic God. They don’t understand the true meaning of serving the Lord; they are too busy serving man. They do many things that are not pleasing to the Lord and they make excuses for it. They are easily offended and always feel they’re being judged when you give them scripture. They often ask “who do you think you are to judge me or anyone? How is it judging when the Word of God (Bible) tells us exactly how we should live? It’s not according to the word of man, but the Word of God. A big issue is man is always trying to change God’s Word to make what they do okay. It’s never okay in the eyesight of God.

Living for the Lord is easy IF it’s what a person chooses to do. People make it hard when they are like petals in the wind. They have no roots! They go along with whatever sounds and feels good. They are neither “hot nor cold” they are “lukewarm.” Millions of people live this way and they think it’s alright because at points in their lives they talk or sing about Jesus or god. I put god, because there are many gods, but only one God! Anytime these individuals mention god or Jesus it’s to please man in some form or another. These are the charcteristics and behaviors of many who claim to be Saints of God. Their talk don’t align with their walk, period! These types of people aren’t called by God nor are they following Christ. They are following after the world and man! They are easily offended. They always want to debate the Word of God with you! They want to implement their false doctrines. They are inappropriate and they do inappropriate things. They are worldly people and they always make excuses for it! Own whatever it is you choose! You can’t serve God and gods!

These people think no matter what they do it’s okay. They believe the lifestyle they lead is okay with God, because the Bible says “for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Yes, we have sinned and fallen short, but that doesn’t mean we should keep living sinful lives. If it weren’t possible to live Holy God wouldn’t have made it a requirement. If it weren’t possible to live Holy Jesus dying on the cross would have been in vain. People choose to be lukewarm out of their desires to remain in the world. To them the world has more to offer them than God. They think they’re having too much fun in the world to give it up to serve the Lord. It’s a very sad state of mind for anyone to be in.

There are absolutely no passes on doing wrong. God doesn’t EVER like the sin. He loves each of us, but if a person doesn’t give up their sinful ways they “will gain the whole world only to lose their soul.” Bottom line if you love Him you will live for Him. You will without qualms “turn from your wicked ways and seek his face.” Many people seek Him ONLY when it’s feasible for them. Yet they are red hot mad when things go wrong for them or for others. They blame God when they don’t even serve Him. If people believed in God and read their Bibles they would know we will endure both good and the bad. Sometimes it’s God’s doing and sometimes it’s your own doing. He allows it when it’s what we choose. Sometimes He allows it when we didn’t choose it in order for us to learn and grow! We can’t blame everything on the devil either, because people have free will either way! People want their lives to be trouble less and trouble free! People who feel this way are living by fantasy and NOT by Faith!

People who claim to be on the Lord’s side yet continue to live any kind of way; risk the possibility of being turnt over to a reprobate mind. That means you are on your own, God has taken His hands off of you, because you’ve refused to do what’s right! You choose to be lukewarm and NOT give up your old ways! He doesn’t like your sin at all and He will chastise us for our sins! People are fooling themselves, but never Jesus, God, or the Holy Spirit! If people want the world to be theirs it’s their choice! However, we all have to deal with the consequences of our choices!

Living Your Life, But Spiritually Dead

Standard

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

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

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

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

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

Sold Out to the Creature Not The Creator

Standard

It really saddens me to see how people are easily persuaded and deceived due to emotions. People are clearly seeking after something, the sad part is they don’t know what. Therefore they latch on to whoever is sounding good and making them feel good. People believe because a person has a sob heart felt story to tell and they can sing good or speak well they are anointed. This is a LIE from the devil! People get rapped up in the story, song, and emotions of the person until the person is who they end up worshipping. A lot of the individuals are openly living like hypocrites, but the people are sold on emotions. This is a disgrace to Jesus and the Father!

People are worshipping and idolizing people because they can see them and they are tangible. They fall for whatever they do or say. They are hypnotized and mesmerized by emotions and words tickling their ears. They begin worshipping these people. They are being led astray because they have no roots. They are following emotions and not the anointing. Most don’t know what true anointing feels like because they don’t understand the difference between the anointing and emotions. They are babes still on milk and have no real relationship with Jesus!

Being a phenomenal singer or speaker doesn’t mean a person is anointed, yet many believes it does. The first thing people will say is the person is anointed. This is foolish! Many people are babes in Christ and can’t move to another level because their eyes are on the creature and NOT the Creator! They are praising and worshipping a man or woman who’s not even living for Jesus, they just sing or speak well. If you’re well known it’s icing on the cake, people will follow them in a second.

Many people are so full of hurt they seek after what makes them feel good. They are blind due to their feelings and emotions. This is the exact mentality millions have in relationships. They miss all of the signs due to being caught up in how they feel. It’s like an addict, they seek after the high; the thing that makes them feel good.

Many are falling by the wayside because they aren’t yet fully connected to the true source. As I’ve said, they have no roots. They are wishy washy /lukewarm/double minded. They are seeking after the tangible while dismissing the intangible. They are following people who aren’t humble. The people they follow are broken too and can’t even live what they teach, preach, or sing about. However, because they are tangible many people worship them.

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit can give you a feeling no man can match. It can take you from darkness to the light if you believe it and receive it. Many folks are in their own way. They are following people God can’t use because they are too puffed up and lost. They don’t have sense to humble themselves so that they decrease so God can increase in them. They can’t see this due to pompous ways of thinking. Yet, these are the people being praised and worshipped. God isn’t pleased!

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!
