Serving the Lord Jesus Will Pay Off

Standard

I will be the first to admit sometimes it gets tough. However, we must remember He is with us! When it’s difficult sometimes to see through the fog, He is there! He said, “He will never leave or forsake us.” I know life throws us terrible things sometimes, but that’s just it; it’s life! We will all go through the rocky roads. Think about it; if you were trying to climb a mountain and it was completely smooth with no grooves or areas to catch a grip, you would probably not be able to climb it. Those tough times are meant to build us up not tear us down!

It’s hard for some people to believe in what they can’t see. He knew we would feel this way. This is why the Bible says “for faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not see.” It is meant for us to “walk by faith and not by sight.”

If we got everything we prayed for, we would be spoiled, selfish, inconsiderate, and self absorbed people. Sadly many are this way period. Difference is they aren’t serving God or they aren’t walking by faith. They may talk it, but they aren’t walking it. As Saints of God’s we can’t simply be hearers of the Word we have to be doers as well. We have to live what we profess!

There is no comparison to the reward we’ll get for staying in the race until the end. No matter how hard it gets, we must stay prayed up and in the race. Don’t allow anything or anyone to cause you to change paths. The devil wants you to get off and stay off track. He’s sending things to you in every direction to get you sided tracked. Remember, he’s a defeated foe under your feet, if you believe it! He may have some power, but God Almighty has all power. The devil is only as strong as we allow him to be in our lives.

The Bible says “if you resist the devil he will flee.” The problem for most they give into the flesh and allow the devil to have the victory. Why give the victory to the devil when the battle has been won through Jesus Christ? Through Him we have the victory! The devil’s victory is temporary, because one day he will be cast back where he belong. Right now he’s trying to fix it where he takes as many souls with him that he can!

I know it’s really hard for some people to believe Jesus exists. He does exist! Man has from the beginning caused their own destruction by going against the Word of God. To this very day man is still doing the exact same things! God didn’t give His only begotten Son to die in vain. He had a purpose which is relevant to us all today. He paid the price for us all when He died for our sins. Yet people are still spitting in His face today.

I dare you to keep trusting Him. No matter what comes your way, keep trusting and believing in Him. You may have to cry sometimes it’s okay, stay in the race. Sometimes you may feel discouraged and want to throw in the towel; don’t do it! The devil gets in any way you allow him to. Don’t give the devil a ride, because he will want to drive. If you let him drive then he has control. Keep trusting Jesus the Son, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit. You may swerve sometimes, but don’t you dare get off the road!

There is nothing greater than someday seeing Jesus’s face. We’ve experienced His beauty and glory, but wait until we can see His face! It excites me to think about! We will someday hear Him say “well done good and faithful servant.” Nothing greater than having a seat at the welcome table in the Kingdom of God!” Man can’t offer something so precious to you. You can only get this by living for Jesus until the race is complete!

I encourage you to hold your head up even when you don’t feel you have the strength. Pray even when you feel He’s not listening. Pray when you’re going through, don’t be discouraged, instead stay encouraged and keep praying! When people around you are talking against God, you stand firmly on the Word of God. When you’ve come out of the world don’t ever feel a need to go back. Nothing is there for you other than destruction and death. Stay on the Lord’s side where you belong. What you do for the Lord will pay off afterwhile. Keep holding on in the name of Jesus!

Led to Hell Following People You’ve Made Your god

Standard

Yes, you read it right. There are some people who are in the ministry who’ve gotten beyond themselves. Their heads are too big and they’ve become puffed up. They think they are beyond everyone else. The pedal stood the world put them own God is going to knock from underneath them. The Bible says we must be humble and we must not boast. Some people think they are God, because people have treated them as if they are a god. They are these many monsters people willfully created.

I was very disappointed to hear a pastor say hell isn’t real, it’s a fairy tale. Now tell me how on earth are you a pastor and you’re telling the people this foolishness? You can’t believe in Heaven if you don’t believe hell exists. The Bible speaks of hell.

People on Facebook are beside themselves, because this person is a well known gospel artist and pastor. There are people saying this and that about him and the situation. There are friends and fellow gospel singers upholding while others aren’t. There are other pastors saying people shouldn’t be judging or talking against him, because it’s not Jesus like (sure isn’t because if you were Jesus like they would be saying it’s not scripture and NOT trying to water down and sugarcoat). There were some saying no one has to right to be mad about his opinion.

Blah, blah, and blah!!! In that order! My response was this, people have the right to do what they choose, feel how they choose, and say what they choose. However, when you’re a pastor and you telling people hell doesn’t exist, it’s a fairytale; then now you’ve crossed the line! It’s NOT a matter of opinion, because it’s COMPLETELY against the Word of God, and it’s NOT scripture. You’re not in a ministry to give opinion; a ministry is to give scripture and doctrine! Keep your opinions to yourself when it comes to the Word of God!

Telling people there’s no hell is implying they have no guidance to follow (the Bible). It implies Jesus died for nothing. It implies we can live any kind of way we want and still make it to heaven. It implies if there’s no hell then there’s no heaven! This is dangerous for the person who said it and for those who believe it.

If a person have a problem speaking up and speaking the truth on this subject then they are liars too! No friendship on earth is worth believing or following a lie concerning my Father in Heaven, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. The Word of God is true and no one is supposed to add to it or take away from it! Those who are upholding friendships more than the Word of God; shame on you!

People get too comfortable in what they’re doing. They develop a huge audience and following, then they began to show their true colors. They think they are in positions to speak foolishness, because they know people love them and will probably go along with what they say or do. Listen, I don’t love no man or woman that much! That includes my mother, kids, siblings, etc. If it’s not scripture it’s not right!! It’s not debatable!!

What people do is speak metaphorically about both Heaven and hell being here on earth. This is true metaphorically speaking, because according to how people think, feel, or act they can metaphorically experience Heaven or hell on earth while they yet live. It’s all about the mindset of the individual. However, don’t get this mixed up with what Jesus the Son and God the Father has said about the existence of these places in the Bible. In the Bible it’s not a matter of opinion or metaphorically speaking, it is real!

I’m not going to keep on “beating a dead horse,” but what I will say is this. Do not allow no man or woman to convince you Heaven and hell doesn’t exist. Read the Bible for yourself and study for yourself. Many people are falling away, therefore they want to push their opinions and thoughts onto others, because they are moving away from the Word of God. If they fall don’t allow them to take you along for the ride!

The devil has his angels just as God has His. People are being deceived and tricked, because they are double minded and trying to love two. God the Father isn’t the Author of Confusion, it is the devil. The Bible isn’t confusing; people who read it are confused, because they are hearers, but not doers of the Word. They talk one thing and do another! Either you will accept it or you won’t. Trying to dabble in both eventually pulls you more onto one side then the other and it is who you will serve.

When someone is trying to shake your faith or cause you to lose your soul, it is time to dig in deep. Don’t go along with it, if you do you’re treading dangerous grounds. Many people in this world are falling away and the Bible speaks of this happening. I’m not surprised at nothing, I may be disappointed, but not surprised. People can only pretend for so long. If you’re already trying to straddle an imaginary fence it won’t be long before you jump fully onto the side you love the most. Sometimes you have to let people go in order to get where you’re trying to go. If hell isn’t real, then neither is Heaven! However, that is a lie and that is straight from the devil! I rebuke it and anyone who says differently. It could be my mother, pastor, friend, I don’t care who it is, I would call them a liar!

I read an article where this same pastor was saying it’s all about doing good while on earth. Well, that’s not true either. Yes, we must have good works. However, those works must be from a pure heart. Anybody can do good works to impress someone. People do it everyday, yet their hearts are waxed cold. So please don’t get it misconstrued, if you do it can cost you your soul and a free ticket to hell!! The Gates of Heaven are closed to those who don’t belong. It’s available to everyone, but not everyone will choose it. The gates of hell are always open it turns no one away, it’s ready to devour whom it can. It’s available to all who choose it. How we choose to live now determines where we live later!

Team Jesus Until the End

Standard

The only way I know to stay sane in this crazy world is by being Team Jesus! If we take our eyes off of Him there’s no telling where we may end up. There are forces tugging at us that aren’t of the Lord and if we aren’t rooted and grounded in Jesus these things will throw us off balance and down to the ground. However, remember even if you fall down, you don’t have to stay there! Jesus is always with an outstretched hand to help you up, clean you up, and put you back on the right path!

Things seem to become more and more crazier each day. Where is the love? People are full of anger and hate. What these people fail to understand is they have deep seated issues which has caused them to be this way. They have learnt to become people full of anger and hate. Hate is a learned behavior!!!!

You have family members killing one another, parents killing children, children killing parents, and people in general killing for no reason at all. People are quick to act or react! You can’t take back what you do when you’ve done the unthinkable! People need to think of the consequences of their actions. Remember, we are here to live forever in hell or Heaven. All of the people hating and killing are setting themselves up for a sure seat in hell when they don’t have to be there. No one have to keep the cycle of hate going, anyone can change if they want to!

The devil is busy and on his job to kill, steal, and destroy. He’s doing his best to make sure people end up in the bottomless pit with him for eternity. He knows his days are numbers therefore he’s trying to take as many as he can with him. Please, please, I beg you to stop giving power to the devil and his angels.

People are giving in to the devil and this world. They don’t want to go through anything. As soon as hard times comes they want to throw in the towel. Not one of us can spiritually grown by buckling and folding every time a storm comes. Yes, we will go through the storms, but they are to build us up and make us strong. Our storms teaches us to lean and depend on Jesus. On many occasions I’ve found people don’t want to hear words of encouragement when they are going through. Some are absolutely offended by words of encouragement. They don’t want to hear anything about Jesus’s promise to us. During your toughest times you should hold on even tighter to Him and His promises. You don’t give up, you stand firm on the Word of God. Something is wrong with people who are offended by words of encouragement during their difficult times!

The devil loves to see people wanting to give up or wanting to turn back from Jesus. He gets great joy out of it! The devil gets great joy to see people trying to live for him and Lord Jesus at the same time. It’s because the devil knows it’s impossible to do! He knows people who are trying to live for both him and the Lord or really ONLY living for Him. The devil knows you can either be for or against God and nothing else!

There are dark forces at work, if you don’t believe it, just read your Bible! They are not make belief, they are real. The devil has his angels just as God has His angels. They are both in a battle for our soul. God wishes for none of us to perish. The devil wants nothing more than for you to perish and reign in hell with him.

We all deal with the forces tugging at us to do wrong when we know we should do right. None of us should never ever give in to the flesh. We should never give in to the negative talk in our heads. The Bible says “pray without cease.” In this mean, cold, and dark world we must keep on the full armor of God at all times! When you feel heavy laden and think God doesn’t care or isn’t listening He is always listening and He loves us all.

People are doing all kinds of foolishness. There are many who profess Christ everyday yet are doing everything against the Word of God. In other words they are those ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing.” They are false, liars, and they will lead you into hell if you’re not watchful, know Jesus for self, and prayed up!

Everything wrong and against God is accepted as right. As a person striving to please the Lord you must not be ashamed or afraid to stand firmly on the Word of God and don’t let anyone shake your Faith! People will try to convince you their way is right, don’t fall for it. The only right way is the way God the Father has commanded! I know we have to live here on earth for the time being, but our eternal homes will be waiting. How we choose to live now will definitely determine where we spend eternity! Keep your eyes on the mark and keep pressing for the prize! Stay Team Jesus!!

Doing Right Amongst the Do Wrongs

Standard

I found out when you have given your life to Christ and you are for real about your walk with the Lord people can’t deal with the new you. It’s very sad to me how people don’t want to associate with you if you’re not sinning with them the way you used to.

Some people claim they love Jesus, but when they find out your walk is serious knowing they are faking, they don’t want anything to do with you. They treat you like you’re doing something wrong. The only words I have for those people are ” I’m praying for you and so long.” I’m not turning back for no one or nothing. People make this journey way more difficult then it should be and I believe it’s because those people don’t want to give up their old ways. They think their joy is in the world, when the world has nothing to offer any of us, other than death if people don’t come up out of it.

The Bible mentions how people will be offended concerning the Word of God. It is so true! There are a lot of people who have an issue with you when you start talking about the goodness of the Lord. They don’t want to see you or hear you. Isn’t it sad? If you want to do something displeasing to God then they are all for it, but want to do right; then they have issues with you!

It’s very unimaginable for some people to believe anyone can live a Holy life. If a person doesn’t believe it, then they don’t truly believe in the Word. Jesus wouldn’t have said it were so if it weren’t possible. Anyone who chooses to walk the straight and narrow for Jesus can do so, if they choose.

Doing right is just as easy to do as doing wrong. There are rewards for both which will either be Hell or Heaven. A lot of people simply do not want to give up their old ways. They think they have it going on in this world doing what the world loves doing which is sinning.

The Bible says “people will love the world more than they love Jesus.” It is very true! It is seen every single day. It is very sad to see how the people of the world are right back in the days of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah. People are blind by their sins. They don’t realize time is at hand. No one is here to stay.

No matter what or who, don’t allow anything thrown at you to shake your faith. If people don’t want to be around you because your life has changed, then oh well. Keep it moving! We are supposed to be changed! If people don’t like who you have become in Christ, it’s their problem not yours. Keep going and growing in Christ!

Sometimes people will test you just to see are you who you proclaim to be. Be that light in this dark world. Regardless of what you used to do remember you’re not the person you once were. When people come at you with the old mess stand firmly on the Word of God. Tell them boldly; no way, not me! Let them know you’re not what you used to be! You are now a part of the Royal Family with the greatest King on High sitting on the Throne.

I thank Him everyday for taking a wretched soul like mine cleaning it up. I thank Him for giving me the desire to truly serve Him. When people shun me, it is alright; they can’t take my joy, because they didn’t give it.

Don’t let the World be Your Downfall

Standard

I know a lot of people get sick of me talking about this. God wishes for none of us to perish. Too many people are against Him in these days and times. It saddens me how some people simply don’t believe while others who claim to believe act as if they don’t. They live something opposite of what they profess. They pretend to be one way when they are actually another.

God can’t use any of us if we are “lukewarm.” In His Word He says “He will spew you from His mouth.” He despise “lukewarm” and it is going to be the downfall for many. People choose the world when everyday people are corrupting the world and it is being filled with more and more evil workings of people. People profess to love Jesus and God the Father, yet they live the lives of hypocrites. In all honesty can’t use anyone who is living this way.

Too many people make excuses for being how they choose to be. It’s all an excuse to continue to live for the world. None of us can live eternally with Jesus if we are trying to straddle the invisible fence I often mention. People who do this are only fooling themselves because God knows and sees it all.

This world isn’t worth losing your soul over. If Jesus isn’t worth a person serving with honesty and truth, then they don’t have a chance with anything else! Jesus is the ONLY way and none of us can get to the Father lest we go through the Son.

Every little thing a person who claims to love Jesus does to try an please man or hide from man is sealing their fate for sure damnation if they don’t change. Stop being a man pleaser and be a loyal Jesus pleaser. Stop trying to hide from man when Jesus sees every move you make. It doesn’t make sense and people obviously have such a profound disconnect until they think they are pulling the wool over Jesus eyes! It just isn’t possible!

If the world is who your flesh chases after then it is who you love the most. That means you’re not on Jesus side. It means you’re against Him and not for Him. It means if you don’t change you will gain the world, but lose your soul.

Our home here is only temporary. We all have a permanent home waiting and we decide now where it will be (Heaven or hell). When the curtain of life falls for the last time it is done and over; we get no more opportunities to change. We will have sealed our fate. Each day is a day to make the right decision. Each day we get is Him showing us how much He loves us; He gives us a chance to get right with Him. Still people continue to play with God.

Even if you say you choose Jesus if you’re double minded and living something other than what you profess you have NOT chosen Him. If you are living this way you DO NOT love Him. I don’t care what you say or think you DO NOT love Him and He isn’t pleased with what you’re doing! Please get right before it’s too late!!

Following After the Flesh or the Spirit

Standard

People it’s time to get it right! Many people claim to love Jesus, yet they are still following the flesh. It doesn’t matter the lies people tell others or the lies they tell self Jesus knows the truth! No one can fool God the Father or His Son Jesus! The games people are playing will lead to damnation if they don’t get right with Jesus. Many choose to remain more focused on living deceitful lives full of lies rather than to commit and submit to Jesus. Sadly they are at risk of damnation/hell. Nothing a person does is hidden from God. The Father and Son knows all!

People are ignorant by thinking they can fool Jesus. A person will either follow after the flesh or the spirit. Whoever or whatever they love most it is what or who they will follow. A pretender (a talker not walker), will always talk one thing yet do another. With them anything goes, they are okay with whatever! They are hypocrites who mock and mimic true Saints of God and God Himself! However, the truth is always shown in the walk; either it will be straight or crooked. Pretenders will always be revealed by their walks, because the flesh will overcome and reveal their true character. The junk inside will come out. The truth prevails!!

A person who is about the business of Jesus will walk after the spirit through the good, bad, and the ugly! They stand boldly on the Word of God out front and behind closed doors. They talk and walk it! They have personal relationships with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! They have daily prayer lives and they read and study the Word! Their focuses are discipleship and Heaven/eternal life!

A person walking after the flesh is a pretender and they willfully and easily conform to the world. They are like ships without sails and petals in the wind. They speak and behave worldly, because they are not the new creatures they profess to be. They are double minded. They seek value and approval from man and they worship him too. They seek gratification of the flesh (sex, fame, fortune, material prosperity, notoriety, money, to be worshipped), etc.

Either you’re in or out! If you’re walking after the flesh you’re out! You can either be for or against Him. No one can have it both ways. Good or bad we will all someday be rewarded for our choice; which will be Heaven or hell. People who think they are getting away or not getting away! Pay day is coming after while!

Selling Your Soul for Hell

Standard

We’ve all heard about celebrities selling their souls for fame and fortune. I want to tell you about people who are selling their soul’s for the world, period; celebrity and non-celebrity! It doesn’t matter the status, many have sold out to the world. As always this post is about those who claim to love Jesus. If you truly love Him you will keep His Commandments. There are no and’s, if’s, or but’s about it!

Many people spend all of their time trying to become famous and successful or trying to stay famous and successful. They make it all about material prosperity, trying to get the best and biggest this or that they can. They want to be on top. They love being honored and worshipped by others. They seek satisfaction of their flesh. They have a never ending love for money. We see this in many who are considered “somebody” in the churches, especially mega churches. Many have all of the acronyms by their names and get offended if you fail to address them as such.

The Bible say’s “seek ye first the Kingdom of God and it’s righteousness and all things will be added unto you.” There are people who want the title, but they don’t want to live the lifestyle. Having the title is nothing to Jesus. People’s concern should be living what they profess. People are quick to profess by mouth, but it’s only to appease and please man. The same man who too will someday be bowing down to the Father.

My prayer is people wake up! Wake up before it’s too late. Selling your soul for this world assures you a one way ticket to hell. I’m not writing it to make anyone mad, I’m writing it because it’s the truth. The ways of the world are getting more defiled and nasty. People of the world are becoming uglier and doing things completely unthinkable. Anything goes, and it’s because of who they serve.

When we say we love Jesus the Son and God the Father to look or sound good to man; it’s only idle words if it’s not from the heart. If it were from the heart many people would live differently. No one on earth can get away with speaking it and not living it. I’ve always written and said “how we live here on earth determines our eternal home.”

Once a person sell their soul to the devil for the ways of the world unless they get it right with God they have sealed their fate. People think it’s a good thing when they are doing it, but it’s not! Everything we gain here on earth will be left right here when we die. We can’t take nothing with us when we die. People spend a lifetime trying to get this and that only to leave it behind when they die. They “gained the whole world only to lose their souls.”

Each and every one of us will have to deal with the choice we make. Once it’s over here on earth so are our ability to choose. This is why we must choose while we yet live. Playing church and pretending to be something you’re not benefits you none! However, if you die in your sins you forfeit your seat in the Kingdom. People do it by choice and freewill.

When a person sell their soul some actually get into rituals and a lot of dark things, because they are conjuring up old spirits and things of that nature. They are messing with the dark side and supernatural. They get into this mess and then their behaviors change. They get into this stuff then most lose control. They worship in some facet those things they’ve made their gods. They do all of this for notoriety, fame, and fortune (some form of success). Sadly many of the people who claim to love Jesus are doing it too!
It’s not only celebrities; other people are doing it too.

Anyone who living for the world/devil they have soul their soul.

People don’t get it! It doesn’t matter what you worship, it doesn’t matter who you worship, it doesn’t matter who you try to impress, it doesn’t matter how high you become in man’s eyesight; if you’re not living for Jesus it’s all vain living. If you’re not truly worshipping Jesus, then the benefit is none and people will find out the hard way. “For the wages of sin is death.”

People seek self gratification, recognition, approval, status, etc. etc. They don’t care what they have to do to get what they want. Many want to be considered as high society. I don’t care how high you think you are, you will never be high as Jesus the Son or God the Father. You’re not exempt from anything, your knees will someday bow and your tongue will confess He is Lord, and without a doubt someday you will die. If you don’t change your ways hell will be your home!
