Leader or not What’s in the Heart Comes out

Standard

A real leader is servant first and they know how to lead by example. Regardless of what position a person holds it DOESN’T mean they are qualified to hold it. It doesn’t mean they have the skills or ability to lead. I see it every single day. I also saw it a lot as a soldier. I’ve written and said a million times you can put ANYONE in ANY position; status NOR money WILL change the type of heart a person has. The type of heart a person has will ALWAYS eventually show who you’re really dealing with! People can hide who they are from others until who they really are surfaces to the top. Whether good or bad; what’s inside is coming out one way or another!

A person who isn’t capable of leading properly can cause chaos for those around them; which ultimately leads to division. “A divided house can not stand.” When some people get into certain positions they think they are above the law and even God. Many people heads are in clouds, because they think they are untouchable. It’s straight vanity. God doesn’t appreciate vainness. One thing for sure (what goes up MUST come down) just as what’s in the heart WILL eventually come out!

Too many people are in positions with messed up and cold hearts. Many of these individuals are in positions of authority and power. They love controlling and having authority over others, because it gratifies them. They are individuals with a multitude of issues. They spew seeds of division amongst people. Why? It’s because of their hearts. These types of people have issues which has caused them to be the way they are and many of them think the way they are is okay. Wrong!

Sadly society is fixated on the positions people hold and NOT whether or not people are capable of holding the positions they are in. If you’re a broken person how on earth can you lead others? It’s like the blind leading the blind. The outcome is division and oftentimes destruction in the lives of others. Bottom line is as the Bible says “how can the blind lead the blind less they both fall in the ditch.”

In this world messed up individuals are embedded throughout the world in different positions; some are positions of power while others are not. They love control and authority and are oftentimes demanding of respect; yet gives none. The outcome is always the same (division, chaos, and drama). The heart will NOT change unless people choose to change their ways of thinking. These people were directly taught distorted and wrongs of thinking or either they developed distorted and wrongs of thinking due to past issues. They move along in and out of positions with the same messed up mentalities. They prey on others, especially those they see as weak and vulnerable.

There are a lot of people with hidden agendas. They get into positions to play out their hidden agendas. Certain positions allows them access to do just that! What’s in the heart will always come out of you! It only lays dormant until it rises to the surface. People can’t contain their demons. What’s in is coming out!

TRADITIONS CAN STUNT YOUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Standard

I’ve wrote a little on this before, but I will write a little more in depth about it. In today’s sanctuaries people are seriously missing the mark. I won’t say Christians, because we all know there are many who have a “form of Godliness,” but are living something opposite. People use the term Christian like they use I Love You. They profess it but their actions say something else. There are many who go to church strictly out of tradition. People must get it together, because this form of tradition will not save you or get you a seat in the Kingdom. If people want to one day see Jesus, they must be born again and live their lives holy and acceptable unto God.

People go to church faithfully. Some work in their churches while others just go faithfully. They’re faithful to their choirs, paying tithes, honoring the leaders, etc. etc. However, their relationships with God is nonexistent. I know people get tired of hearing me talk about it, but it’s my duty to write about it and speak about it. Going to church out of tradition stunts people’s spiritual growth. A person won’t progress and grow spiritually if they don’t get a personal relationship with Jesus. “The only way to the Father is through the Son.”

Many are so wrapped up in what man thinks of them. They don’t want to miss a service, because they’re going out of tradition and to be pleasing to man. They feel it’s the right thing to do and they feel obligated. Yet they live something else. They’re holy on Sunday, but don’t give God any time on other days. Actually they’re not giving Him time on Sunday, they’re giving it to the Pastors of their churches. It is their leaders they praise and worship. They have put on forms of Godliness, because it’s acceptable by man, but it’s not acceptable by or to God.

There is so much evil going on in this world. People are committing horrible acts (killing their children, children are killing their parents, killing family members, and others) over meaningless things. The value of life means nothing to many. People are seeing signs in the skies and experiencing supernatural things, yet they don’t understand what it means. They want to come up with logical reasons, without understanding the Bible speaks of these things happening. There is a lot worse to come. In other words the Bible is being fulfilled. Yet, it’s still not enough for people to change their ways.

I pray no soul is lost. It’s each individual’s choice as to where they choose to live eternity. People do what they do because they don’t believe God is real. If they truly believed they would live differently. It’s sad, because many will lose their souls on that great day. I pray that it won’t be you. Please understand your faithfulness of attending church will not do. People must get out of their in-grained traditions and get personal relationships with our Creator and then begin to live a holy life before their chances come to an end. Not wanting to give up this mean ole nasty world is going to cause many to spend eternity in hell.

I know a lot of people get tired of hearing about Jesus, but IF you do it’s because you’re not where you need to be in Him or you don’t know Him at all. I will share with the world until I leave this world.

IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU

Standard

Some people have gotten too high for their own good. By high I mean they’re up in the clouds on their pedal stools. They didn’t get up there on their own, others have elevated them to that point and now they’re too high for their own good. I won’t categorize it by any particular type of people, because I’ve seen it by people of all caliber.

Today I am referencing leaders in the church. This post isn’t intended for all, but “if the shoe fits, wear it.” If it doesn’t be thankful it’s not about you. I know the first thing someone will say is I’m judging. Those who aren’t on the right road will think it’s judging. I’m not trying to judge anyone, because God has left what we must abide by, especially those who are leaders in the church. I’m speaking the truth, I’ve seen what I’m writing about time and time again. God isn’t pleased at all! Initially some leaders may have had good intentions, but they have lost it along the way. They’ve lost focus, therefore control. It has turned into a race for fame and fortune. They’ve forgotten about their flock and what the true message is about. They’ve made is about things of the world and no longer about living in such a way to gain eternal life.

I am appalled at what I am seeing church leaders do and say these days. We are living in trying times and things won’t get better. Things in the Bible must be fulfilled; so that means things will become worse.  Many who aren’t acknowledging it are those who are supposed to be serving God.

Leaders, I don’t care what title or titles you hold, I am talking to you. If you’re not for real about what you’re doing it’s time you sit down. Some of you are falling down in one way or another (dying, becoming suicidal, drugged and alcohol addicted, depressed, getting caught up in gay scandals, abuse scandals, sex scandals, and all types of things etc). On the other hand some of you think you’re getting away, because your dirt hasn’t yet been brought to the light. Today is your chance to get it right. a chance to stop the foolishness; to change your ways, and your life. However, if you don’t, you too will fall sooner or later. God is tired of being mocked!

God is charging you many times over for leading his flock astray.You’ve become hungry for attention, fame, and fortune. A lot of you aren’t teaching soul salvation at all. All your teaching is material prosperity. You’ve lost the focus. You’re not teaching how to live holy and how to truly worship, honor, praise, and obey our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You’ve lost focus of the true message. You’re not speaking the truth, your heart isn’t with the Messenger and your eyes are no longer on the Creator. It’s all about you. I believe this is why everybody want to be a preacher, pastor, evangelist, bishop, apostle, prophet, etc. etc. They love the power that comes along with it. Many are too busy focusing on who has the nicest and biggest church, and material things.

The Word says, “for many are called, but few are chosen.” The problem with the world today is far too  many of you have called yourselves and it is the VERY reason why you’re not chosen. You’ve made it all about you. You love being praised, worshipped, and honored by your congregation and others.

Some of you are living more crooked than the letter S. You’re living like hypocrites behind closed doors, because you  feel you can’t be seen. Some of you are so in your face and don’t care what people see, because you hold the power, control, and authority over the people. You use it to the max; people fall at your feet, and will do anything for you. Some of you take full advantage of this.

A true saint sees the truth by way of the Holy Spirit and a Gift of the Holy Spirit; which is Discernment. The truth is visible. The sad part of it all is you think you’re fooling everybody, because you’re fooling so many. You’re mistaken! Most importantly; you’re not fooling God.

You’re accepting any and everything in the sanctuary. You’re allowing things that are clearly against the Word of God. You go along with it because of the mighty dollar and keeping people pleased so that they come back and not go anywhere else. Many of you are all about notoriety and recognition. You want to be an important person of prestige.

Some of you act as if God is the little one and you’re the Creator. You’ve actually put Him on the back burner while you’ve put yourselves out front. Although many have helped put you there and up on the pedal stool you’re on, it’s you who will be charged by God, because you’re in the position of leader in/of your church.

Many of you are flashier than worldly people. It’s because you too are still in the world. Nothing about your life is changed. What I mean by this is you’re still doing the same worldly things. You CAN’T live any kind of way and gain eternal life. If this was the case the entire Bible and God would be a lie.

Heaven and Hell are real. Every single day we’re blessed to see is a day to get it right. It’s a chance to change our ways and to get it right. Unfortunately many fail to take this wonderful opportunity. Instead they continue on in their mess.

Today, right now, is an opportunity to change your life. You must have a made up mind, a changed mind and heart. God must be your all and all, your everything, your reason for the seasons, your first and last, the greatest love of your life, etc. You must be sold out to Him. If you don’t feel this way then you shouldn’t be standing before people calling yourself a leader called by God. God qualifies those He elect. Too many leaders have set their own qualifications to go by, because they’re not truly called by God.

Many of you are living to build up your worldly houses, but have forgotten about your spiritual houses. You love the things of the world. You love being considered by your congregation and others as great! You love being called “great woman or man of God” knowing it’s furthest from the truth. You’re pumped up with pride. You’re boastful and you’ve forgotten how to be a servant. All you care about is being served.

At some point you may have given your life to Christ, but somewhere you took your eyes off of God and His Son Jesus Christ. God can’t use you the way you are, because you’re too full of vanity. It’s time to come down off of your pedal stool so that you may be a true prospect the Lord can use.

You can’t be both in the world and of the world; yet preaching God’s Word; thinking it’s alright by God. It’s not! You know you’re wrong and if you don’t stop it one day you won’t have an opportunity to ask for forgiveness. If this happens, when your eyes close for the last time, dead is what you will be and you will not have eternal life. Stop trying to gain the world only to lose your soul. I’m not trying to hurt no one, I’m trying to help somebody, before it’s too late.
