Can’t Serve Two Master’s

Standard

People are quick to profess their love for God and His Son Jesus, yet they know in their hearts they are lying. One thing I know for sure is a person can lie all day to someone, but they can’t EVER lie to God. The Bible specifically says you can’t serve two. Many who say they love God are still trying to serve both God and their other master/s.

I saw a video where this guy says there’s no such thing as the devil. They admitted to believing there’s a God, but said there’s no devil. Hmmmmm??? It makes no sense to me. How can a person believe in one and not the other? The gentleman believed we have been programmed to fear the devil, etc. Still it makes no sense to me. People shouldn’t fear the devil, they should fear eternal damnation, which is where the devil will reside one day right along with them. The devil don’t rule hell, the devil doesn’t choose who goes to hell; people choose their own eternal place (Heaven or hell) and ultimately God places them there. The devil will be cast right back where he belongs when the time is right. The only power he has is what God has given him.

God isn’t in the business of forcing people to choose Him and live according to His Word. We all have the right and will to choose what we want. The problem with people today is they want to pick and choose when they are on the side of God and His Son Jesus. They think they can live any kind of way and still go to Heaven. It’s a lie!!!!!!! It’s a trick of the enemy. If you love Him you will live for Him and ONLY Him not sometime, but ALL of the time!

God presents to us in many ways and so does the devil. It depends on who we choose and love the most; as to how we perceive, accept, and choose to live. People think they can do some things pleasing in the sight of God at certain times in front of certain people and it makes all well. It’s a lie! God isn’t impressed or pleased. He’s heartbroken and sad at how people are not willing to give up the ways of the world. He’s sad He’s having to turn people over to reprobated minds.

People don’t want to accept chastisement from God, because they wonder how can a God allow this and that or how can a God do this and that to people. As a good parent (notice I wrote a good parent) you will implement consequences for your child’s actions. You will set guidelines, rules, etc for your child to follow. Why are people upset and angry when God chastise or answer prayers in ways other than what a person hoped for? As a parent the parent knows what’s best, why do people see it differently when it comes to God? You wouldn’t if you were on His side.

One day every last one of us will die, but we do not have to perish! How we live now determines how we live eternally. No matter how tragic the ways of the world are; many still don’t want to give it up. People who don’t want to give it up are the same folks who profess God and His Son Jesus in their lives. They are some of the same ones who are full of idolatry and caught up in titles and positions. They are faithful to going to church, but they are also the one’s full of envy, malice, jealousy, contentment, and other negative things. They are offended most times when you speak about Jesus and the rest of the time, they don’t want to hear it. These people aren’t fooling God, they are fooling self. They are the first ones who say don’t judge me. They are the first ones to say no one’s perfect. Please, give me a break!!! These are ALL excuses to continue to do what a person wants to do. Whether people take ownership or not, NO ONE can serve two Master’s.

People think because they are faithful to going to church they are on God’s side. It’s all lies and they are in denial. They think because they stand and testify or give their rendition of utterance to God they are safe; NOT SO! People know exactly what they are doing and they know when what they do isn’t pleasing to God. You can serve Him on Sunday and/or Bible study nights and do everything you want to do the rest of the week, it WON’T work!! God sees your every move. Unfortunately people love the world too much to completely and totally submit to God. Well, you can’t submit halfway, you have to be in it all the way!! You can’t live this way one minute and that way the next; that’s not how it works. You have to be about God’s business 24/7 and 365/a year! Many people are constantly trying to add to or take away from the Bible to benefit them. God said don’t do it!!!!! I’m saying in writing the benefit of it is NONE! The reason the benefit is none is you’re either for Him or against Him. There’s no in between and there’s no fence to straddle, PERIOD!

Your life now determines your life later. The choice is for each one of us to make. However, don’t for a second think you’re fooling God. He knows how you are living, He knows how you present yourself each and every second of the day. No one’s mannerism, charm, beauty, material possessions, titles, positions, fake gifts they learned to mimic, or fake spiritual performance will get them into Heaven. The ONLY way to the Father is through the Son. You must be, have to be, and got to be Born Again, and you MUST live Holy! There’s NO OTHER WAY!!!!!!!oanl

He’s Still in the Healing Business

Standard

Hello everyone, I’m on 2 weeks vacation, I hope all is well with everyone. Today I want to remind you that God the Father and His Son Jesus are still in the healing business. I was flabbergasted when someone told me that God doesn’t heal today like He did in the Bible days. They said sometimes we get our healing in Heaven and not on earth. I flat out told this person, he was a liar and obviously don’t believe like he claimed, if he did he would have never mouthed those words.

To me those are words of an unbeliever. I said there is NO sickness in Heaven, therefore a person doesn’t have to go to Heaven to be healed. God is doing today what He done way back when. He is an unchanging God who is still working miracles. It is people who aren’t believing in the power of healing and they definitely aren’t walking by faith.

Jesus gave those who chooses to believe in Him the power to speak healing over their own bodies and to lay healing hands on others. The problem is people are NOT activating their powers, because they don’t believe like they say they believe. People are running to their church leaders asking for prayer and healings when they have the power to pray and heal self.

I’m not saying people shouldn’t ask for prayer or healings, I’m saying be careful who you ask. People must understand “faith without works is dead.” A lot of people are running to pastors, evangelists, prophets, bishops, apostles etc. etc. when many of those people need someone praying for them, because they aren’t living the life they profess. You shouldn’t be so quick to let any and everyone to lay hands on you or to pray for you. The Bible says “try the spirit by the spirit.”

Start stepping out and walking by faith. Know that God the Father and Jesus His Son are always with you. Activate and operate by the power given unto you as a child of God.

Jesus is still working miracles, the problem is those who claim to believe aren’t really believing. You can’t get a breakthrough if you don’t believe you have the power to get one.

If you’re a true believer my prayer is that from this day forth you will walk by faith and the power given unto you. Start speaking healing in your own lives. Jesus took sickness with Him in death. People have to believe it. Troubles will come and they will go, through it all no matter what the troubles may be, we must stand on the Word of God and believe as people we have the power to speak over our lives. Trust and believe the Word of God!

Decrease Self, so God can Increase in You

Standard

Too many so called Saints are pumped up by others to the point of being puffed up. They are standing dangerously on man-made pedal stools. They may have started out with a sincere walk, however; because they didn’t ever really have their feet planted they took their eyes off Jesus and started thinking they are doing it on their own. It isn’t so!!!!!! Now they are all puffed up and too blind to see it. They have lost focus and now it’s about self-gratification which normally entails power and greed. This has nothing to do with Jesus.

The catastrophic truth is they are man serving man and no longer Jesus! These types of people do what they have to do to keep the spotlight on them to continue with their greedy ways. They are being worshipped, praised, and idolized. Sad part of it all is they love it! None of it has anything to do with Jesus!

Some people will catch attitudes if they aren’t addressed by their titles. Many are getting their quick degrees, because they think it makes them more prominent. You know this has nothing to do with Jesus the Son or our Father God. Jesus isn’t impressed at all in no way, shape, form, or fashion. It is meaningless to Him.

When individuals have gained all of their worldly possessions and then some day die, nothing they’ve gained benefits them IF they weren’t living for Jesus and according to His Word! Someday we will ALL leave this world. If a person has lived for the world, they will ultimately die gaining the world, but losing their soul.

No one can grow in spirit if they are full of self. If they are puffed up and prideful, they will make everything about self. These types of people are living in vain. Their lifestyles benefits them none at all. These types of people are seeking accolades from man. Their focus is on being pleasing in the sight of man. Their focus is no longer on Jesus, because they feel they got to where they are on their own.

As I’ve always said, there is nothing wrong with self development, self improvement, goals, success, etc. However, if a person isn’t focused on Jesus and helping others none of it matters. We aren’t here to simply accomplish our dreams and goals. We are here to serve Jesus and help others. It’s not about us! Don’t get me wrong, we aren’t supposed to live for other people or allow others to hinder us, but we are here to lend others a hand. Helping others doesn’t mean allowing yourselves to be walked over or stomped on. It means giving someone a helping hand when and where you can. It means being more selfless and less selfish.

The only way to the Father is through the Son. The only way to the Son is by being born again and living a Holy life according to the Word of God. When
people make their existence all about what they have, their titles, and their money; they’ve lost complete focus. These types of individuals can’t increase in Jesus until they decrease in self. Jesus can’t use us until we decrease in self and allow Him to work in us and through us!

Author of Destruction

Standard

I wanted to write about what is going on in the minds of people. Many people in this world are under the influence of the devil and they don’t know it. Too much evil is going on and societies are chalking it up as mental illness when it’s not. I heard on the news yesterday a woman stabbed her four children and their father to death. Tell me that’s not pure evil????????????

The devil is busy killing, stealing, and destroying. Those who haven’t uncovered the truth of what is going on with self will continue lives of dysfunction. They will continue on paths of destruction until they discover who they can be and stop embracing what they are. They then can recover and live the lives God intended.

People succumb too easily to the trick of the devil because they don’t really understand they are under his influence. When you’re not connected to Jesus you are capable of doing anything. People who aren’t in tune with self certainly aren’t in tune with God the Father and Jesus the Son.

The reason the devil is getting into the minds of people is because they are living by the flesh alone. They are in the world doing all the worldly things. They have focus on all of the wrong things. They are self absorbed and selfish; making things all about self.

Those who aren’t in tune with self are led by their negative ways of thinking. They get something into their heads/minds and although technically they know what they’re thinking isn’t right, they will continuously ponder over it until they develop feelings behind the thoughts; leading to negative actions behind the feelings. This is how people end up making bad choices and decisions; they are led by their negative and distorted ways of thinking. When you ponder long enough over negative thoughts you will more than likely act on those thoughts. People are giving power to the negativity until it takes over. This is a form of possession.

It’s nothing but the devil. He already know the minds of many people are weak. These people already have many unresolved issues they haven’t let go; which has already caused them to lead chaotic lives. It’s all destruction and the devil is the father of destruction. When you let him drive he takes over and control. This is what’s happening in the world many are under the influence of the devil and moving at his command without any resistant. This leads people to making some of the worst decisions and choices of their lives.

The powers of good and evil are in full effect. What we choose is what we choose. The devil don’t tight anyone up to serve him, he enters in through all of the avenues people make available. The devil doesn’t fight against those who are on his side; he simply leads them into further destruction and ultimately death. People must wake up!

Nothing Compares to His Agape Love

Standard

The reason I go back revisiting many previous topics is because as long as the world go around many people will NOT get it. There will always be the same problems with different people experiencing them. No matter how much information is available, people will do exactly what they choose with no heed to the truth.

Many people are doing the unthinkable in order to be loved. People are seeking something they know NOTHING about. How can you receive something and know whether it is good or bad; if you know nothing about it?

In order to truly love someone you have to first know what love is and you must love yourself. People are continuously and feverishly without fail looking for love in all of the wrong ways, in all of the wrong places, and in all of the wrong people.

Below are a few things people will do in the name of what they perceive as love:

.People will forsake their children for love and allow harm to come to them, because they base their reality on how they feel about the person they are with…..They will kill, steal, and commit other heinous acts, because they accept anything to be in the life of the person they are with (ride or die)……They will tolerate physical, mental, verbal, and emotional abuse, because they want to hold on to their false sense of love……They will perform immoral sexual acts, because they are easily enticed and influenced by who they are with even if it means doing any nasty thing to please them…….They will engage in drugs and alcohol although they never thought to try it before, because they are trying to maintain a relationship or to fit in…….Many will join gangs or other types of groups to feel a sense of love and belonging……They will accept being treated any kind of negative way and completely overlook it due to feelings of their hearts…….Some will be cheated out of their possessions oftentimes losing everything, because they allowed their hearts to lead them blindly…..They will do things they are normally against or wouldn’t ever have done before, because they are blind by what they feel is love…..They will put up with excessive foolishness as long as they can say they have a man or woman. They think some man or woman is better than no man or woman at all. How sad is that??

I could honestly write out pages and pages of nonsense people will do in the name of what they THINK is love. However, I believe I wrote enough for you to understand what I mean. People willfully and foolishly go through pure hell in the name of what they perceive as love. They are constantly in and out of relationships seeking love yet are always ending up with the same results. Still, they don’t get it!

People are desperately seeking love when God is standing with His arms wide open ready to receive anyone who is willing to receive Him. If people would only give Him and His love a try. There is no greater love in the entire world. He won’t forsake us or leave us alone. No matter what we go through He is with us. His love is never ending and unconditional. There are no stipulations for receiving His love. It’s available to everyone all across the world. He loves us despite of and He wants us to love Him!

Read carefully, I repeat; there are no stipulations for His love. However, there are stipulations to how you must live your life; for it determines how you will spend eternity. He doesn’t give you a free pass because He loves you. He also chastises whom He loves. To make it to Heaven there is a particular way we must live and it’s outlined in the Word/Bible. Him loving us doesn’t mean we are exempt. Despite of His agape love we are STILL held accountable for how we choose to live.

No one can ever love us like Jesus the Son and God the Father. We can look high and low, but there is no one who can give agape love other than Jesus the Son and God the Father. People put ALL of their trust in their significant others who repeatedly let them down, but NONE in Jesus, someone who will NEVER let them down. These types of people will do anything to be with a person who doesn’t love them yet they turn from or don’t want to receive someone who loves unconditionally.

When a person falls in love with Jesus, the first thing He does is show you what love is and in doing that He teaches us to love ourselves. When a person love his or herself they WILL not allow any ole thing or person in their life. Seeing this change in you YES people will shun you, they will talk about you, and many times you will have to walk naturally alone. It’s okay, because spiritually Jesus is with you! People won’t understand the change in you. They are okay when you’re down and out, but when you get on the right track they either pretend not to see you or they hate what they see. Just know it’s NOT you, it’s the LACK of Jesus in them.

My recommendation is after you’ve tried everything else you want to try; try Jesus, He won’t leave you alone, talk about you, stab you in your back, tell lies on you, mistreat you, do you wrong or lead you wrong in any kind of way and He will always want what is best for you. He knows everything about you and knows you better than you know yourself. He doesn’t always give you what you want, but He will supply what you need! Allow Him into your life and discover who you REALLY are through Him!! There’s no love like His agape love!!

New Generation, Same God

Standard

I wanted to write about this topic, because some people want to believe because many have chosen the ways of the world, the Bible isn’t applicable today. Lies, lies, lies! I don’t care how much society changes; the Word is the Word! The Word will stand when all else fails.

Everything right is wrong in the eyes of many nowadays and everything wrong is right, this ISN’T the way of our Lord and Savior Jesus or Our Father God. It is the ways of the world which is being played out by those on the devil’s playground. Sooner or later the very master many serve will be bowing before the one and only Master. Although for many it will be too late, they will then see the truth!

I don’t care how much people conform to the ways of the world, God is unchanging. He isn’t changing to conform to us. The Bible and its guidance is unchanging. As individuals we must change to conform to Him. People got it all twisted! In today’s times, many people think the Bible doesn’t apply to them due to their different mindsets. Wrong! It doesn’t matter what people choose to do, the Word is the Word and it supersedes all! Many people go along with whatever suits them at the time. In the Bible days, Jesus never conformed to the people, he sat amongst them, but He didn’t do what they did.

People don’t fall for anything, because they stand for nothing, they fall for anything, because they stand for anything. It took me a while to get it, but God opened my eyes about it. They are like dandelions in the wind, they are all over the place.

People want to do things the way the world does things and they are fooling themselves when they think the Bible doesn’t apply today. The ways of the world are not of God. The things going on today is man’s doing and man’s agenda, NOT God’s! These people can keep believing their lies if they want to, they’re only damning their own souls.

I’ve heard some of my own family members say, this is a new generation, we do things differently. Okay, maybe so, but God is still in charge and no matter how much the people of the world wants to believe what they’re saying is true, it isn’t. It’s a delusional way of thinking. People think they can do what they want to, when they want to, how they want to, to whom they want to and have no repercussions or consequences for their actions. You will reap what you sow! God’s way is the ONLY way; accept it or not!

If Jesus or our Father God changed things to appease people where would we be? If God flip flopped like people do, where would we be? People choose to either live for Him or against Him; whatever choice a person makes is of their own personal will. Many people believe because they’ve adopted what the world has ordained as acceptable the Word no longer applies. Sad, sad, sad! As I’ve always said and written, the devil is on his j-o-b; to kill, steal, and destroy.

God created both Heaven and earth He is ruler over it all, He is ruler over us all, that will not change. People can do what they want to do and believe what they want to believe, God’s Word and His ways will not change. His Word was set before any of us were born into this world. People want to believe it isn’t applicable, because they want to live any kind of way and not be held accountable. We’re all held accountable to man, why don’t people think their not held accountable to God? Man can change whatever they choose to change, God’s Word will still stand and it is unchanging. That goes for the old generation, new generation, and generations to come!

Express Train to Hell

Standard

I don’t know why people are hell bent on going to hell when salvation is free. The world has nothing to offer us, other than death. Don’t get me wrong, while we live we should live positive and prosperous lives. However, we shouldn’t make people or things our gods. A person can lose what they have, friends come and go, health fails, family can walk away, but God our Father and Jesus His Son are always there and the WORD will ALWAYS be a guide for us. It is unfailing and it will stand when all else fails.

People are too focused on building their legacies and kingdom’s on earth when after they die it’s done. Sure people may talk about you after you die, but what will it benefit you??? NONE at all. Many live to gain the whole world only to end up losing their souls. People are so desperate for fame and fortune they are selling their souls to the devil, literally. It’s crazy!! The devil have some power, but God has all power to include over the devil.

Many are more worried about how their physical homes look then how their spiritual home is looking. People will one day leave their physical homes (their houses and their bodies), but the spiritual part of them is what will live on. How people choose to live now while on earth determines where they will spend eternity.

People are too worried about pleasing man. They want success so badly they will do anything for it. Many in the world are either idolizing the rich and famous or selling their souls to become rich and famous. The rich is only trying to get richer. Many think they have everything when they have NOTHING! Money isn’t the root of evil it is THE LOVE OF MONEY! The love of money is destroying many and causing people to sell their souls to the devil. They sell out to the devil in hopes of achieving fame and fortune when one day they will die and leave all those possessions behind.

Not only the rich and famous are selling their souls anyone who isn’t on the Jesus’s side is selling their souls. Church leaders are selling their souls because they are trying to be on top. They have turned sanctuaries into places God didn’t intend for them to be (selling and all kinds of things in the churches). They are trying to have the biggest homes, churches, cars, etc. It makes no sense. There’s nothing wrong with prospering, but when you’re not teaching spiritual prosperity and how to receive salvation, how to be born again, and live holy; something is wrong!!! If all churches are teaching is material prosperity; something is wrong! They must teach people how to live in a hell filled world and how to stay rooted and on Jesus’s side when satan and his cronies are trying to pull them in their direction. Satan is already defeated, but people don’t realize it, because they are too busy worshipping their leaders and NOT Jesus. Some don’t know the Word because they only see it on Sundays. This is sad!!!

Individuals are selling their souls everyday, because they profess one thing and live another. They are doing everything against God, yet profess him at the same time. It’s not possible; they are liars and the truth isn’t in them. If you’re doing things against God, you’re wrong! Remember, you can’t serve Jesus and the devil too. The reason many aren’t ready to give up the world is because they think they will miss something. They are right!!! They will miss the opportunity for Heaven, because they are on an express train bound for hell.

Pretending to love and serve God is worldwide. Many “praise Him from their lips, but hearts are far from Him.” These people are only fooling themselves. This journey isn’t a game of hopscrotch; you can’t skip and hop all over the place. Hearts and minds must be about our Father’s business not when we feel like it, but all of the time.

I can’t speak for no one, but myself. I know the life I’ve led. I know the person I once was and the person I am now. I wasn’t ever wild etc, but I did do some things I shouldn’t of like everyone else. I thank God so much for keeping me through it all. It makes me cry every time I think about how he kept me. He has literally saved my life from death on a few occasions. All I can think is it could have been me more than once. I thank Him for covering me. I thank Him for giving me the sense to plant the seed in my children. They are grown now, but they know the way. What they choose is on them, but I know they know the way, period! I’m glad I got off of the express train to hell and got on the glory train bound for Heaven. Thank you Jesus!!!tee o
