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!!!

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!

Man’s Pedal Stool, Man’s god

Standard

I worship no one or nothing other than God and His Son Jesus. I’ve been told I’m plain. Okay, whatever! I love people and I enjoy doing many things, but I don’t do what I use to do, point blank! What I choose isn’t worshipping people or things. No one on earth is worth it to me! People who are worshipped breathe, eat, and put their clothes on same as me. They breathe the exact same air, they may eat better food and they may have finer clothes, but it doesn’t make them God. There are many gods, but only one God.

I think it’s ridiculous to see how people are worshipped and praised. Individuals fall out, hoop, holler, and cry over other people when many of them doing this foolishness don’t even love themselves. They fall in love with these people, but don’t know what love is about. They attach themselves to people who probably wouldn’t give them the time of day.

What’s even worst and sadder is the fact that these people who are worshipped think they are gods because it’s the pedal stool they are put on by society. They act as if they are different because they have the means to do different things. No they aren’t different! They live, die, and experience all of the things everyone else experiences in this world. No status or amounts of money will change it, no one is exempt from none of it! That’s why you see the same people being worshipped committing suicide, depressed, jumping from relationship to relationship, mutilating themselves, etc. etc, no one is trouble-free. Reality is no amounts of money or notoriety, changes what’s on the inside.

The hearts of men and women is what is causing our society to be in the shape it is. People are doing any and everything for fame. People are doing any and everything to be a part of the world. A person can be rich with money, but not rich where it counts which is spiritually. If you’re not rich spiritually; money and all of the worldly possessions means nothing! Someday people will have to depart from their money and possessions. How a person lives now determines their final resting place (Heaven or hell). It’s that simple!!

Some individuals spend a lot of energy and time worshipping and idolizing other people; yet  have no investment in self. They make other people lives their business when it’s not. They make the people they worship their gods. Bottom line is the people they worship still eat, poop, have all kinds problems, and then someday die like everyone else.

A lot of individuals who claim to serve God are also worshipping people and things. People must be vigilant and careful who they are worshipping, because it’s idolatry. It is against God and His Son Jesus! Choose what you want to choose, but know that you can’t serve Jesus and worship individuals or things. No and’s, if’s, or but’s about it!

Not Perfect Simply Obedient

Standard

On this journey to see the King some people get mad at you and say you’re trying to be perfect. It’s okay, because what people say carries no weight and has no bearer on you having a seat in the Kingdom. It all falls on you! Those who always have something to say are people who are dealing with their own issues. They can’t stand the new you! They are dealing with their own struggles of coming out of the world. If they were on the side of Jesus they wouldn’t be talking about you in the first place.

People are quick to say they’re not perfect, you’re not perfect, and you’re judging. It’s all excuses for them to continue to live any kind of way. Some of these people are so called Saints. They want to do what they want to do in thinking they have no repercussions for their actions. Whether sinner or Saint, there are always consequences and repercussions for our actions. I sometimes reference some people as so called Saints, but in reality they are sinners who aren’t really serving God. They are trying to straddle a fence that is non existent. They think because they are Saved, go to church, go to Sunday school, pay tithes, or work in the church that’s good enough. Well, I’m here to tell you it isn’t! You must be Born Again, you must be Holy, and you must live Holy. A true Saint want’s no part in doing anything against God. A true Saint is always thinking (what would Jesus say, what would Jesus think) before they do anything that would be displeasing.

On several occasions people have told me no one is as Holy as I am, I act perfect. They assume I’m not always living what I profess. They can’t fathom the thought. It doesn’t bother me, because I get it! I don’t expect for a person who is struggling trying to decide what side they truly choose to believe it’s possible to be obedient and live to please Jesus. How they feel is no hindrance, because my focus is seeing the King and getting into Heaven. In my life no one or nothing is before Jesus. No one has to accept it, because  I know He does! He knows neither my talk or my walk are in vain.

Starting out it’s not easy, but the more you put God first, the easier it becomes. You’re not pretending anything, it is what it is. Once you choose Jesus and stop looking back everything else falls into place. Only those who are trying to serve both God and the world (that ole devil) have a hard time believing living Holy is possible. Obedience does look like perfection and in the eyesight of God it is what He sees in us. When a person strives daily to please Jesus it’s being obedient to the Word of God and His Sons Jesus! Remember you can’t get to the Father lest through His Son!

I’ve written many times today, right now; is really all we have. Tomorrow isn’t promised and yesterday is gone. Today, right now; is all ANY of us have! Death can come for ANY of us at any moment. If a person is still debating which side they want to be on when death comes, it will be too late! If a person is playing church when death comes; it will be too late! All we have is right now to do what is right in the sight of Jesus! Tomorrow isn’t promised and even if you see it, if you’re still playing church it will be too late! If you’re on His side then being obedient shouldn’t be or wouldn’t be a problem. Being obedient to Him and His Word bothers those who don’t. Therefore, THEY think you’re acting perfect when you’re ONLY being OBEDIENT!

 

When Your Heart is Wrong Nothing is Right

Standard

It doesn’t matter if a person does good if their hearts are wrong. Many people put on false persona’s every day. They pretend to care and they pretend to do good when it’s a lie all along. People do this, because they are pretending for some type of gratification.

As I wrote in an earlier post, the Bible says “God knows your heart.” Many people misconstrue this in thinking no matter what they do even if it’s wrong God knows their hearts. He does; which means you can’t fool Him with anything! People seem to think by doing good they can get away with stuff or that by doing good it makes things okay. No it doesn’t at all. If your heart is wrong behind your good actions, it’s wrong period! That’s why just because a person does good doesn’t necessarily mean they are a good person. Many individuals are very deceitful and they do things to look a certain way to others. They have different no good agendas long before they commit the act of good deeds.

I write about fake people all of the time. The reason I do is because I want people to understand they are setting themselves up for failure by lying and pretending they are Holy versus truly being Holy. People are fake and put on facades for many reasons. They present themselves as good people, but in their hearts they are full of anger, envy, jealousy, malice, strife, and a host of other things. These are  people we hear who are caught on cameras doing the unthinkable. They get arrested for various reasons. They use foul language. They act and dress inappropriate. They are drug addicted, sex addicted,  and alcoholics. They are people we see or hear about who get caught up in scams and all types of busts. They are so called friends, neighbors, some family members, and other people. They come from all walks of life and they are from all races. No race is exempt! Every race has every type of bad influence you can name, just as they have every type of good influence you can name. This is why there is absolutely no superior race of people. Many of them are so called Saints. They said on podiums and pulpits, they sing in the choir, they direct the choirs, they are on usher and deacon boards, they are church musicians, they are on the finance committee, and they are a part of every possible position a church has to offer.  These people go through a lot of shenanigans trying to prevent being seen by the wrong person when all along they are seen by the right one; Jesus. How foolish are they?

People have to understand when they need to implement change in their lives. However, this can’t ever happen if people don’t first admit they have a problem/s. If people don’t embrace the fact that something is wrong they won’t ever change. This is why so many people think when they are doing wrong it is secret. There are no SECRETS in the eyesight of God the Father and His Son Jesus. It’s why many people will not see the Kingdom of God. They are too busy trying to fake and pretend rather that give up this world and get right with God the Father. People all over the world pretend to live holy lives, but they aren’t the truth. They live lies! Sadly many are those who lead their flocks.

It doesn’t matter if a person is a so called Saint if they are faking and pretending they are someone with  deep seated issues they need to face and work on. When people fake and pretend the truth comes out sooner or later. No one can live their life this way without ever being found out. The truth eventually prevails in some form or another. Their walk doesn’t line up with their talk. It is what it is, but they must know they aren’t fooling God. As the Bible says and as I have repeated over and over “you’re either for or against Him. There are no in between.” Pretending in any essence of the word plainly means you’re not for Him. People don’t want to accept it, but it’s the truth.

Many people are adamant in thinking they are for Jesus. They think because they go to church every Sunday or whatever they are doing in relations to Jesus; they are on His side. No it’s not the truth! They don’t want to hear the truth, because they feel they are serving Him when they show up for church or when in church they are performing in whatever position they hold. No, it doesn’t matter! If you’re not living what you speak and you’re doing things against the Word of God then it’s against God Himself and it means you are against Him. It may hurt to read the truth, but the truth is what it is!

You can’t be on His side when you are doing things you know are wrong. You just can’t do it. When you choose God the Father and His Son Jesus together they make one. Whatever you do against the Son you do against the Father. You can’t live a Holy life being a hypocrite, it’s impossible! I don’t care what a person think they are, if you’re not living what you speak then you’re against Him.

I’m trying to make people realize they must take responsibility of how they are living. There is no way on earth a person can live Holy with a hypocritical lifestyle. So called Saints must understand there is consequences for their actions. “To gain the whole world is to lose your soul.” If the ways of the world (fornicating, lying, cheating, committing adultery, stealing (can be done more than by taking material things), killing (can be done in more ways than taking a life) are more important; then people must be prepared to face the repercussions and consequences of their choices and decisions. The decision is made while we yet live. We get no do overs!

He Knows all About So-Called Saints

Standard

If you read this and get mad, fine; it only means there’s something you need to work on. I sit back and watch many people playing with God. Some are so holy on Sunday’s but the rest of the week they’re living like hypocrites speaking, doing, and acting in ways that are against God.

Jesus isn’t pleased with your eloquent speech on Sundays. He’s not pleased with you teaching or attending Bible study. He’s not impressed with you never missing a Sunday service. He’s isn’t impressed with how well you get along with your church family. He isn’t impressed with how you shout His name during church service, how many times you lift your hands, or say amen. He’s not impressed or happy with how good you are at mocking and mimicking the Holy Spirit. He isn’t impressed with you serving on the usher board or in the choir. He isn’t impressed with you faithfully paying your tithes. He’s not impressed with the many titles before and after your name. He isn’t impressed with the many words you speak during prayer. He isn’t moved by how well you sing, preach, teach, or prophesize. He’s not impressed with how big the church you attend or how big its congregation. He isn’t impressed with how nice you look on Sundays. He’s not impressed with your fame, fortune, glitz, or glam. He knows the relevance of it is NONE and He knows you’re not what you say you are!

In other words He’s not impressed with the many things people do when they are doing it to obviously please man and not Him. Those who live doing things that are against Him are certainly NOT on His side. You can talk it all day it doesn’t make it so. You can look the part, it means nothing. You can act the part, it has no relevance. Jesus know your hearts and your true intentions. You can say you mean well all day, He knows the truth. It doesn’t matter if a person does good when their true intentions are wrong.

The Bible says those who know right, yet chooses to do wrong will be charged even more. Those who have a hand in leading people astray will be charged far worse. For those who don’t claim Him and choose to do what they want; they too will be charged. No one is exempt, no one gets away. Unfortunately many who are getting by think they’re getting away. You’re definitely NOT!

Any person who does ANYTHING against Jesus is doing it against their very soul. We all have to answer for what we do. If people don’t change their ways the choices they make now will follow them into eternity. If those claiming to love Jesus don’t stop playing church they will lose their souls. Everyday we live is another chance to get on the right side. People continue to straddle the fence when there is no fence to straddle. You are either on His side or NOT!

All of the sexual immoralities such as homosexuality, infidelity, adultery, fornication, sodomy, incest, beastiality, swinging, molestation, rape, etc. etc going on by so-called Saints must stop. All of the lying, backbiting, stealing, hurting others (mentally, emotionally, physically), and mimicking/mocking God must stop. All of the many addictions such as drugs, alcohol, sex, food, gambling, etc must cease. Idolatry, envy, jealously, greed, etc must stop! Some so called Saints party hard and shake their butts on Friday and Saturday; and then put on a form of holiness for Sunday. This gets you nowhere but hell bound. Those claiming to love Jesus yet are not loving your own family must stop, because it’s NOT possible. You pick and choose what family and friends you want to love. You pick and choose other people you want to love. You must love ALL people. Some of the very people who are leading flocks are committing these very acts. Many sitting in the pews Sunday after Sunday claiming they are Saints; are committing the very acts.

Leaders of the churches aren’t teaching the right things in their services. They are not telling people how to get saved and stay on the Lord’s side. They aren’t inviting people to Christ these days. They aren’t teaching how to get off of the Milk and start eating the Meat (the Word of God), for substance and spiritual growth. Instead they are only teaching material prosperity. They are too busy choosing fancy words and closing their eyes to the truth. Some churches are so commercialized they look like lounges and worldly venues instead of sanctuaries. Leaders are accepting any and everything into their sanctuaries when the Words says separate yourselves. There should be distinction and a peculiar way about Saints, but there isn’t, because too many who are claiming to be Saints are still in the world to INCLUDE many of the leaders.

I’m not trying to bash or judge, I’m trying to help someone get it right! Saints must put down the facades and pick up the “full armor of God.” We are living in evil times. If you’re faking it Heaven has no place for you!

So-called Saints are still doing things behind closed doors that are against God. They are still tipping, dipping, ducking, and dodging from man when God sees every single thing done! Many don’t want to stop what they are doing and do right because it means they will be responsible and accountable. Duh!!! You’re responsible and accountable period; no matter if it’s a right or wrong choice. Problem is many fake folks pick and choose when they will do right or when they do wrong. They do right to look good in the eyesight of man and then choose wrong when they think no one is watching. Truth is if you’re doing right ONLY to please man, then it’s still wrong! If you are on the side of Jesus you shouldn’t be so quick and easy to do wrong. You should turn away from the ways of the world, period!
