Choosing Man’s Way Over God’s Way

Standard

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To Love Him Is To Live For Him

Standard

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Standard

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
