Nobody to Man Somebody to God

Standard

Sadly we are all looked at and judged according to who we know and who we are to people. Many people don’t get opportunities because other people don’t consider them as “somebody.” They may be as talented or even more talented, but if they’re not well known they are considered a “nobody.” People miss out on what great individuals have to offer when they categorize individuals this way. I think this is one of the worst things people can do to one another and it’s a very shallow way of thinking.

People of the world make it all about who they know. They want to be associated with well known people. They gravitate to people they believe are well known. Why? I believe it’s because of what individual’s feel about self. They think they need to be associated with someone with who is well known for their own recognition or just to say they know the person. It’s sad! A lot of people invest a lot of time in others, but none in Jesus or developing self. They focus on what man says, does, and thinks.

When individuals like people according to their statuses it’s how people end up with big heads thinking they are better than others. It’s how people end up high on man made pedal stools. Many begin to act as if they know everything, simply because of the pedal stools they’ve been put on. Some become gods to the people following them. None of it impresses or pleases God the Father.

No title or status changes what’s inside. It’s why we continuously see people of status from all walks of life doing stupid stuff. Many folks busy trying to rub elbows with individuals because of their statuses or titles when many of those individuals have as many or more issues than they do. Facts!!!

In the sight of man as long as they consider you to be “somebody” they love you. You can say anything or do anything and people will eat it up. Yet another person who isn’t considered as “somebody” can say or do say the exact same thing and people will have nothing to say. I think it’s very ridiculous!

God doesn’t look at us this way, He has no respect of persons. With Him there’s only one big happy family. We are all His Children, but we individually choose whether to be Children of God. He allots us this choice! All the other titles the world wants to give people means absolutely NOTHING to Jesus the Son and God the Father! We may have favor for something, it doesn’t mean God favors you over anyone else. He does not! He doesn’t look at us this way! In Him there’s no big I’s and little u’s!

People want validation from man. People want to feel as if they’re a part of something when they associate themselves with known people. In my opinion those who feel this way need to work on self. Stop being shallow minded and accept people for who they are, period! Stop looking at statuses and positions; choosing to like a person according to what they are considered to be to the world.

When we die none of what is gained here on earth will matter. None of it will matter when we leave this life. If you haven’t served the Master by living according to his Word, nothing else will matter. People keep on living as if they will never die. People are too busy trying to gain man’s approval and validation, yet they aren’t concerned with living pleasing in the sight of God!

Don’t worry about man thinking you’re a nobody, you are somebody to God. He loves you! Those same people the world deems “somebody” will someday depart this life like everyone else! There’s no bartering, bargaining, or buying your way out of leaving this world. Not one single person has the power to stop it! How well a person is known won’t stop it!

If you continue to be caught up in who man says you are or who man says someone else is; you won’t ever be able to be who God wants you to be! Stop worrying about what man says and focus on pleasing Lord Jesus!! He loves us and doesn’t want any of us to lose our soul’s. The world cares about pleasing the flesh, God cares about spiritual house that our physical houses will someday depart!

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!

Worshipping Man Disappoints You Every Time

Standard

I was listening to someone pretty well known as a gospel singer and used to be pastor. She was ranting angrily about church folks. She was cursing and acting completely out of control. In the comments some people were saying God is speaking through her, she’s telling the truth, woman of God speak, etc while others were against the delivery. God had nothing to do with it. It’s foolish to think God would speak through ANYONE in that way. Truth is it was all her, she was speaking out of the flesh! Although she spoke truth how she did it was wrong. Cause she’s mad now she wants to talk against people and the church; when she knew from the start those people were EXACTLY the way they were. She remained a part of it until the well ran dry. Don’t blame no one but yourself. I’m always good with the truth and she told the truth, but lowered herself to tell it.

I’ve told you all many, many times just because a person says they are a pastor doesn’t mean they are of God. A person can tell their story without acting out of control and cursing, disrespecting self. Don’t get mad THEN want to blast the church, those you were doing what you were doing with, regular church goers, etc. People know the folks they are dealing with and they know many in the church aren’t remotely trying to live what they are professing. As long as it’s working it is all good; when something goes wrong you’re mad at everyone to include God.

I don’t care how upset or disappointed a person gets you never let the devil win. You shouldn’t let the devil take you back to your old self. People do it because they’ve never truly became new creatures, therefore they never came out of their old ways. Trust me if you’re faking it will come to the light. Going on Facebook live only shows the entire world who and what you truly are. It’s no surprise to me! I’ve said more than I’ve written in some of my blogs many Gospel artists sing, but don’t live what they sing. I know; I’ve lived it and seen it. I’ve written many times how people are making their pastors their masters and how the churches of today are not churches of God, they are churches of the people. Churches of the people are straight business oriented. They reach people to keep their businesses afloat, but they aren’t trying to reach souls. This is why I always say get a relationship with God for yourselves and get into the Word for yourselves.

Listen, stop believing the myth. Everyone going to the church house isn’t a Saint of God. People get upset and want to cast God aside because they are mad at church folks when most of the church folks aren’t Saints of God. People go to church out of tradition. They go because to them it’s what they are accustomed to and they think it’s the right thing to do. It’s not because they love the Lord and have a relationship with Him. They have relationships with everyone but God. They are faithful to the pastor, choir, usher board, Bible study, and tithing; ALL to please man, but no relationship with Jesus Christ! Most still do the same things they’ve always done, they haven’t changed.

Many people are angry at church folks when most in the church aren’t Saints of God. People are confusing it, they have put all people going to church in the same category. It’s wrong and unfair, because some people who are going to church are in love with Jesus. They believe He is the Son of God who died for our sins. They worship Jesus and not their pastors. They are going out of a relationship with the Father and the Son, and Holy Spirit and not to please the pastors or people. These are the true Saints of God and they aren’t the same as regular “church folks.”

With regular church folks expect anything! Their walk, talk, goings, comings, ways of thinking, feeling, and acting hasn’t changed. They are still liars, cheating, boastful, prideful, they love money and things, and doing everything against God. Sad part many are the preachers, teachers, singers, choir directors, musicians, ushers, etc. They go to church, but it’s not in their hearts. When you’re a true Saint of God you carry the church inside of you 24/7, not just on Sundays or for Bible study. You live the church, because the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit dwells in you. That is the difference between people just going and those who are Saints of God.

If you’re mad you should be mad at self. People put folks up on pedal stools, they praise and worship them, then they are mad when they are hurt and disappointed. It’s to be expected when you deal with folks who are going to the church house out of tradition. It’s to be expected when churches are ran strictly as businesses because the focus isn’t the soul for the Kingdom, the focus is the body to fill the seat. If a person is angry be angry at yourself for falling for it and going along with it trying to get what you want. Get mad at yourself for putting your pastors and your churches before God. Get mad at yourself for putting folks on pedal stools. Get mad at yourself for trying to do whatever to be a part of the click. Get mad at yourself for trying to embed yourself into the lives of people because of who the world say they are (they are known, have a title, have positions of power, etc, etc). Get mad at yourself for worshipping people, titles, positions and not worshipping God!

Jesus is exactly who He say He is; the First, the Last, the Beginning, the End, the Great I Am. He’s all of it and some. He’s not false of fake. He’s not a want to be He is the Great I Am. He’s no liar, He’s no people pleaser, He isn’t fixated on titles or statuses cause He’s the Great I am. He doesn’t have to show boat for anyone. If you get connected to Him you will understand the difference between church folks who go out of tradition and love for the people and those who go out of love for Jesus Christ. There’s no comparison! You will also know just because a person sings the gospel and may be a household name it doesn’t mean they are living what they sing. People are falling out over folks and worshipping individuals who are singing the gospel, yet the ones they worship don’t know Jesus! It’s a shame!

As long as people go with their eyes on man being led by the flesh they will continue to get the same results; disappointment! You follow what you love the most! Stop using the line people are judging and no one is perfect to stay the way you are. Stop serving the world and think you won’t get what it has to offer; disappointment! God is not mocked!

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!!

Spectator Outside Looking In

Standard

I used to lead sing a gospel song called “Standing on the Outside Looking in.” I was very young then and when I think about it, that’s exactly what I was doing, because I wasn’t a Saint of God. At that time I knew of Jesus, because I was raised in church, but I didn’t have a personal relationship with Him. I would sing, because I enjoyed it and I was decent at it.

I am so thankful for change! Oh my goodness if I was the person I used to be I don’t know where I would be right now. I thank God for giving me the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding which made me seek after Him. I gave up this world and never looked back! I know many of you think I’m probably full of it. I promise you, I never looked back. Once I gave it up, that was it for me! There is nothing better or greater than His love to me!

On this journey a person must know what they truly want. There is no dipping and dabbing in the world and trying to live for Christ. It isn’t possible. In our minds when we are doing what we really want to do, what we want the most is what we submit and commit to. Many say it’s the Lord, but their ways says something else. Their ways shows who they truly choose. We can pretend all day, but we are never able to fool God. When we are talking one thing yet walking another we are nothing more than spectators on the sideline looking in.

Many people get offended when you tell the truth about it. They want to say you’re judging etc. It’s not judging when you’re telling the truth. Especially when all you care about is helping someone before it’s too late. I don’t have the power to save anyone. Anybody who think they are powerful enough to save anyone they are foolish! We can encourage, motivate, educate/teach, inspire, mentor, etc, yet; we can’t save no one. All any of us can do is tell someone about Jesus, the individual has to want to do the rest. They must want to come out of their sins and become saved! We can invite them, but it is the individual who must accept the invitation (Romans 10:9). I don’t care who it is, if they say they are living for the Lord, but are still partaking in the ways of the world; they are merely spectators outside looking in.

When people are trying to love two, it’s not an easy thing. It brings drama, confusion, destruction; and according to the Word of God you will love one more than the other. Therefore the one tugging at you the most is what you will follow. We either follow the flesh or the Spirit. People who are spectators outside looking are those who are “lukewarm and double minded.” There’s no place or room in the Kingdom for them!

Stop being a spectator, because you’ll never ever reap the benefits of the Kingdom, by standing on the outside looking in! Remember, you’re either for Him or against Him, there’s nothing else to choose!
