Fixated on what you Got, Instead of What got you

Standard

This very thing will land many into lake of brimstone and fire (HELL). People are too worried about what they have or what they can get. Their thoughts and passions are for what they can accomplish, acquire, or obtain. People are lost in their desires to gain all the possessions the world has to offer. Some will do it at any or all cost. Realization is you gain the world, but the price will be to lose your souls.

People are into how big their homes are, how much money in their accounts, or the cars they drive. If they don’t have their own, they will connect with people to get out of them what they can. They are willing to step on toes, feet, and even heads to get what they want. They will stab you in the back and then steal someone else’s knife and stab you with that one too!

They are liars, false prophets, hearers of the Word only, fake Saints, deceivers, wolves in sheep’s clothing, Jezebel spirits, and you name it! All they care about is the association of Jesus the Son and God the Father by name and name alone. They have forms of Godliness denying the power thereof. They have studied and therefore have learned to mimic the behaviors and actions of true Saints.

Most are working diligently towards material prosperity and NOT spiritual prosperity. They want to be big shots! They are vain and puffed up by people. They love to hear people chant their names. They speak in inaudible fake tongues, even God Himself can’t understand the foolishness from their lips. They pretend to live Holy, yet they are double-minded.

You know who you are, you know what you are, and you know to whom you truly belong. You may deceive some people, but you’re not deceiving them all and you’re certainly NOT deceiving Jesus the Son or God the Father! You will find yourselves on roller skates and a slippery road straight into the pit of hell. Don’t get caught living this way when the Master comes. He’s coming like a thief in the night!

The Bible says people will love the world more than they love God. It is definitely true! People are so focused on what they got and not on what got them! Some will kill, steal, or destroy others to get it (with no remorse or shame). They are possessed by their desires of this world. Anything having control over you possesses you! If you love it more than God; it is your god!

People need to understand with no doubt once you leave this world you can’t take NOTHING with you. Concerns should be of eternal life with the King. If not your eternal life will be with whom you chose; your master Satan! As I’ve said and written before, Satan can’t put a person in hell, people choose it freely.

The choice is always yours to make, but remember your choice will make the difference between life and death! Make the right one, before it’s too late!

Gone in an Instant

Standard

None of us knows how, when, or where! I lost an uncle and my grandson’s young father over the Thanksgiving holiday 2016. There are many of my posts about getting our lives together before it’s too late. DEATH is real and it’s coming for each of us. My uncle was quickly taken by cancer, my grandson’s dad quickly and tragically taken by being struck by 2 vehicles.

Life is far too short to not want to be the best we can be. Too many choose to live their lives as if they’re never going to die. NEWS FLASH, we will ALL someday die and unfortunately many lives will be gone in an instant without a chance to repent. If we die in our mess that’s it!! Eternal damnation will be the choice made. No one knows the day or the hour, this is why it’s so important to get your lives together while you’re able to repent and change your ways. Don’t be a person who God has turned over to a reprobated mind.

I’ve written many times and will continue to write; nothing in this world is worth losing your soul over. If we die in the midst of our sins we don’t get any do over’s. Right now is it! Right now is our opportunities to get it right and live a life that’s pleasing in the sight of Jesus. We can play too long until we’ve played out and it’s too late. Don’t let it be you!

Death is coming like a thief in the night and without warning. No matter the situation or circumstance no one knows exactly down to the sec when they will take their last breath and depart from this physical world to a spirit realm. As long as we have breath in our bodies and blood running warm in our veins it’s NOT too late to get it right.

People of today are out of control. Many are lost souls who has submitted to the works of the darkness. They are out to do harm to others for no legitimate reasons. Their minds are controlled by evil thoughts; with raw emotions and feelings behind those evil thoughts until they end up doing the unthinkable. People are doing all sorts of foolishness. It comes from what’s truly in the hearts of people. When they are full of darkness (envy, jealousy, anger, malice, strife for WHATEVER reason/s) they are overcome by this darkness and it shows in their actions. They do things, because those things are what they have been thinking about for a long while, those things are eventually put into actions. They are seeking to belong, to be loved, or something they lack. They are easily persuaded and manipulated into foolishness. This is the work of evil which is here to kill, steal, and destroy. Look around; no matter where you are, you will see and hear about the madness going on in this world. People are broken all over the world, they are lost. They are young and old. They are of all races!

People are committing all kinds of evil acts and many are killed in the midst of committing those acts. These people have chose eternal damnation when they didn’t have to. People must stop being so easily influenced, brainwashed, manipulated, and persuaded by others. We all have a brain to think on our own and for ourselves. Even if you had a twin one was born before the other, therefore we are all birthed into this world alone. It’s great to have people who love you and are there for you, but in case you don’t have this; we ALL must be able to stand alone and make the right decisions and choices for ourselves. People must stop being influenced by others to do the wrong things.

To kill or harm in the name of ANY form of religion or hate is ludicrous. To kill or harm in the name of what a person thinks is love is ludicrous. To kill or harm, because you can’t deal with who you are is ludicrous. To live a life full of balled up pain when you don’t have to is ludicrous, because it keeps you captive by your own mind and it causes nothing but havoc in your lives.

I still believe nothing but love conquers hate. Some people are full of hate for all kinds of reasons, but it does nothing but feed the darkness they hold inside. These people don’t have a chance for eternal life if they die in the midst of their sins and darkness. We don’t know where, how, or when it will be our time to leave this world. Right now is the chance for change, but it’s up to each individual what they choose. In one blink of an eye any one of us could be gone. Think about today, how you choose to continue to live; because your life can be gone in an instant. Today is all we have, tomorrow isn’t promised, and yesterday is gone forever!

 

 

 

 

 

Backdoor of Life Leads to Death

Standard

Have you ever thought of this? The older I get I find myself thinking about death. I’m not afraid to die, but there are ways I don’t want to die. The reason I’m not afraid to die, is because I believe we are created to live forever either in Heaven or Hell. I choose Heaven all day, everyday. It’s all about what we believe. No matter what comes out of a person’s mouth, what a person believe is demonstrated in how they live. Many people live something other than what they profess, but at the end of the day when that back door opens and we have to step out into eternity, how we chose to live determines the path we will take.

I’ve always stressed the fact that I am not trying to push my beliefs on anyone, however I will always speak and write about my belief/faith. As God’s children we are supposed to be messengers and it’s my duty to provide what Jesus has given me. God wishes for none of His children to perish. The world we live in isn’t our home, we’re only passing through. We’re not here forever, but only for a little while. Everyday we live it’s our chance to right any wrong, but unfortunately many don’t believe therefore they don’t change their ways. You also have those who say they believe but are only pretending.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t want to be caught with my work undone. I want to be caught up in the rapture! People who know me think I am quite peculiar, but isn’t that what the Bible says about His people (we are peculiar people). When I put away my old ways I didn’t go back to them. I made up my mind and I never turned back. There are many people who meet me and without knowing me they don’t like me because I am different. I don’t act like them, do what they do, talk like them, or see things as they do. I live 24 hours a day, 365 days a year believing that God the Father and His Son Jesus are watching me. At one point in my life my eyes were on man only to realize every man’s knees shall one day bow. I had to find out for myself that every man has to stand for his or herself. I decided to put my eyes on who has the power and authority over Heaven and Hell. He’s the Author and the Finisher of our Fate. After doing this everything in my life changed. I am still me, but I am completely renewed. I could have been dead many times (literally), but for some reason I was spared. I can’t thank Him enough, I wouldn’t serve no other.

People think by living in the world they can’t separate themselves from the world. I believe people do exactly what they choose. I know you can separate yourself and in order to live for Heaven you must separate yourselves. The problem with most is they don’t want to give up their foolishness; not  understanding not giving it up will cause them to miss Heaven. There’s absolutely nothing in this world worth losing your soul. Many live as if they’re not going to die, but rest assure one day each  of us must step out our back door of life; there is nothing on earth that will stop it from happening. It will someday happen to every one of us.

My prayer is that people who believe get on the right side and stay there, stop flip flopping, and stop playing games. If you say you believe then live like you do! For those who don’t believe I recommend Jesus on today, I’m not saying you should, must, have to, (I’m only recommending), the choice is yours. One day the lights in our eyes will go out and our lids will close for the last time we will then step out through lives backdoor into the choice we made while we had blood running through our veins.

The world we live is becoming more and more unstable. People are fighting, killing, stealing, no love, no values or morals, families are divided, hatred running rampant, destruction on every hand. There’s things going on in all corners of the world. For me and my house I will serve the Lord. Many people worrying about fixing up their physical and natural homes, but they don’t think about getting right their spiritual homes. Everything else we have will pass away, but our spiritual bodies is what will live forever. Our spiritual houses is what we step into once we step out of life’s backdoor.

 

 

If You Claim Jesus, Live It

Standard

This post is for those who CLAIM to believe in God and His Son Jesus. The day we were born we begin to die. Some act as if they are going to live forever here on this earth. You’re not! People claim to be on the Lord’s (Jesus) side, but their walk is totally different from their talk. People like this are only fooling the person staring back at them in the mirror.

In the Bible God said “I rather you be hot or cold, if you’re lukewarm I will spew you from my mouth.” Time is out for playing! Look around at what’s going on in this world today. People are killing like it’s nothing, mother’s against daughters, fathers against sons. People are doing whatever they want to do. They are worried about being caught by man, while Jesus sees it all. For those who are claiming one thing from their lips but are living another, one day you will no longer have an opportunity to choose.

You’ve seen me write straddling the fence many times, but in reality there is NO straddling the fence, you’re either for Him or you’re against Him. People can continue to live their lives for man, not understanding that man has to bow too. In the Word, God says “every knee shall bow.” It didn’t say a few or some; it says EVERY knee shall bow.

While we yet live, we live according to what we believe. If you say you believe but live something else  you’re a liar and you’re straddling the fence. You may claim Him, but how you live tells the truth. I’m not talking about how you portray yourself to the world, because most already know that’s pretense. I’m talking about how you live when no one sees you. God always sees you. Anything against Him is not pleasing to His sight. People are more worried about pleasing man. They are still in the world doing worldly things. They look, talk, dress, act, and think worldly. They only give reference to God on Sundays as if that will get them into Heaven. By doing this you’re choosing a side even without knowing it. If you’re NOT for Him, you’re AGAINST Him; point blank!

We are created to live forever! If a person die in their sins when they die they are dead; meaning they have lost the opportunity for eternal life with the Father. They chose the road of eternal damnation.  It’s the life they chose to live forever, because they chose their god (the devil) while they were alive. It’s ALL a personal choice. People can shuck, jive, dip, dodge, fake, pretend, and play all the games they want, but there’s ONLY one way to the Father and that’s through the Son. If people think they can dip their feet on both sides; WRONG! In other words, what I am saying is by trying to play both sides, in reality you’re only playing yourself, because it’s either one OR the other. People are trying to play both sides of the fence, but by NOT submitting completely and living according to God’s Word, you’re automatically choosing the other.

There’s nothing hidden under the sun to the Son! God wishes for NONE of us to perish, but at the end of the day the choice is personal. For those of you who know you’re not doing right. You know exactly what you’re doing, thinking, feeling, and how you’re acting. If you read the Word, then you know whether it’s pleasing to God and His Son Jesus. A person can be saved, but not living a Holy life.  However, the Bible says you must be Born AGAIN and you must live Holy. That’s the bottom line, the point, and the period! Stop playing with God, because He’s NOT playing with you! Stop playing Russian roulette with your life.

We see so many tragedies every single day we live, yet people still don’t want to do what they know is right. As I’ve said before, everything wrong, the world is trying to make right, and everything right the world is trying to make wrong. This is not the way of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

There are consequences to how we live. There is no way around it,  how we choose to live determines where we will spend eternity.

 

 

Love and Abuse Don’t Go Together

Standard

I felt a great need to write about this subject once again. In the past few days women have been killed by the men who supposedly love them. Today it happened about 15 minutes away from the city I live in; both were only twenty years old, she died and he tried to kill himself. This post is for both men and women. Although we don’t hear about it as much, men get abused as well.

If you accept anyone in your life who is abusive SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOU! I’m not here to condemn or judge, I’m here to help someone. If you allow any type of abuse SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOU! Please seek help! Too many people are dying at the hands of those who supposedly love them. This isn’t love!!!! Harming or killing you is the last thing someone who truly loves you would imagine or even attempt doing.

People who show love by controlling you in any way has an issue and those who allow these types of people in their lives has issues as well. Love isn’t controlling, demanding, or abusive in any shape, form, or fashion.

If you get with someone and they are abusive, you need to exit the relationship from the start. Do not go any further. Don’t play with fire, because not only can you get burned(metaphorically speaking), you can end up dead!!!

Stop allowing abusive men and women into your lives. You think it’s special that they’re bad boys or bad girls, etc until they turn that same energy on you. Look at your situations and the people you’re involved with; and truly examine yourselves. If you’re being abused in any form you need to get out. It’s not love, it’s not funny, and is sure isn’t cute. You need to get out!!

It’s not love when you’re controlled or when you’re afraid of who you’re with. If that’s you, you’re in a bad situation and you’ve been there too long. Never give anyone the opportunity to think abusing you is okay; it’s not!

Abuse isn’t just physical, it comes in many forms such as mental, emotional, verbal, sexual, controlling, isolation from others, overbearing (they appear to be protecting, but they’re actually controlling and dominating you).

When a person gets involved with an abusive individual not only do they put themselves in harms way, they put those around them in harms way. A person can only fool you for so long. An abusive person will ALWAYS show who they really are, people miss it because they feel too much with their hearts until they dismiss signs of a potential problem. The signs are ALWAYS there! People have the tendency to see it when they’ve gotten in too deep and by then for many it’s too late. Your lives are precious and you only get one. No one has the right to abuse you, but too many of you give abusers the green light to do so.

The first mistake people make is going forth in relationships with those who have abusive tendencies. The second mistake people make is not walking away at the very first sign of abuse. The third mistake people make is accepting “I’m sorry” after the first incident. Stop giving another opportunity for something else to occur; when you do this you have given up your power and the abuser knows it. They know EXACTLY how to treat you, because you taught them how to treat you!

If you’re the type of person who is eager to love and have the willingness to take anything in the name of what you think is love; then anything is what you will get and at any time. The person you’re with will treat you exactly how they want too, because they know you will take it. They will manipulate you, because they know what it takes to keep you where you are.

It’s sad seeing women with their faces slashed, bodies burned, because they got gasoline threw on them, beat up publically; it’s all so very sad! It never ever should get to this point. Don’t allow your wrong way of thinking and loving put you in this situation.

Stop making excuses for staying, NONE of the excuses are worth it. People make excuses to stay, because they’ve lost control and power of their own lives. Why? It’s because they freely gave it from the start. People seek love in all of the wrong places and in all of the wrong ways. Why do you think this is so? I believe it’s because people are tainted from their pasts. Many seek love because they never received it as a child, etc. There are a million reasons fueling these types of behaviors (for both the abuser and the abused). The bottom line is people have to take responsibility for their lives regardless of what they’ve gone through. Stop blaming the way you are on other people or other things, because you have a choice to be exactly how you are. We all have the power to change if we choose too!!!

Not all people lose their physical lives, but many lose themselves to anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, low esteem, etc. etc. They lose themselves because they gave all they had to loving someone who wasn’t deserving (in the name of love). They gave their power to someone who took it.

Abusers comes in all shape, sizes, and colors. Regardless of who they are or what they do; abuse is abuse and abusers always show who they are in some way or another. Those who are are caught up in what they think is love will be led by their hearts into bad, unsafe, unhealthy, and draining relationships.

Learn how to build self esteem and confidence in yourselves, this way you won’t seek false love and security in someone else. If you don’t know where to begin there are many resources for help online, professional counseling, local social work services and community activities. Seek help!!! Learn to love you!!! If you do this you won’t EVER allow ANYONE to come along and mistreat you in any way. People treat you EXACTLY how you allow.

Life Goes On With Or Without You

Standard

A lot of people inspire me to write about certain things. Today I want to tell you don’t give up! No matter the situation; no matter who, DON’T GIVE UP! There are many people in this world who are brokenhearted and completely at a point of giving up. In the whole scheme of things it’s not that person nor is it any particular situation that has caused you to feel this way or caused you to get to the point you’re at; IT’s YOU and how you’ve allowed things to affect you!!!!

Many times I’ve posted about how not to give your power to people or things. If you do; you can lose yourself in your situation if you’re not careful. Too many people have that save and fix it spirit. They want to save or fix the person they love so much; who by the way are causing them stress, anxiety, depression, etc. How can a person save someone else when they too need saving? It’s like the blind leading the blind. People do a lot of what they think is right in the name of love, until they find themselves messed up because of the situations they’re involved in. No individual can be in a healthy relationship if they’re carrying baggage from their past or previous relationships. We will always have the memories, but even memories fade IF we allow them too. Pasts are gone forever, it is the memories of people’s pasts that they continue to hold on tightly too. The memories are what fuels the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors/actions. It messes up many people for a life time.

If you’re in a relationship and the other person wants to get out, let them! You have no right to force them to stay. Stop giving your power to others and to your situations. Life goes on whether you roll with it or not. If you don’t roll with it, you’re stuck. You can find yourself in a place of misery, sadness, and confusion. Stop allowing people and things to define you. If a person no longer loves you, love yourself and have enough dignity and pride to move on. Life isn’t over. It didn’t begin with them and it won’t end with them. We as humans put too much stake in other people and by doing so we oftentimes end up in situations we regret.

No matter what is it; keep moving on. Troubles come and they go. Remember; if you process situations as if they’re unbearable and as if it’s the end of the world, then that’s how you will act towards those situation and it will show in your behaviors. People get twisted and tangled over their relationships and other situations, because they put too much stake in them and give too much power to those people and things.

I would never say not to love the one you’re with, but you have to understand it’s two in the relationship and you can’t make anyone love you no matter what you do UNLESS they choose too. Many people make their lives all about being loved by someone or loving someone,  when they don’t even love themselves. This is a clear sign something is wrong here!

People make life way harder than necessary. When it comes to relationships nothing is a surprise if you accept the truth as it’s presented and not lead blindly by emotions. Stop allowing your hearts to lead you where your brains are not following! Too many people want to give up on life when their relationships don’t work, this is VERY sad and it’s very clear these types of people don’t love themselves. These types of people are lead by their hearts and they’re seeking something to satisfy what’s missing in their lives. These are the types of individuals who are constantly dealing with emotional issues.

Same goes for different situations, no matter what; life goes on. If you didn’t get that promotion or job, then there are others. If whatever it is didn’t work out for you as long as you live there is another chance around the corner. It’s NEVER the situation or the person you love; it’s you! If you lose yourself in the midst of it all, then you have given up something valuable. That something valuable is your the ability to maintain the power that belongs to you. Any time you give it to someone or something; you will always find yourself on the short end of the stick.

Faithfulness

Standard

I know this post will step on many toes and I’m hoping it hurts enough that someone will want to change. I wanted to write about this, because this is happening all over the world to so called people who are professing Christ in their lives.

People are very faithful to many things and many people. They go out of their way to show their faithfulness and will not waver from it. They are faithful and true to those things and people.

Millions are faithful to their name brand material things. They will not walk out of their homes unless they’re matching from head to toe with their named brand clothes and accessories. Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with looking good and there’s nothing wrong with purchasing what you can afford, but when it’s an obsession, then that means it too far. Some women carry named brand purses, but don’t have any money to go in them. This is sad, because what a person has doesn’t define who they are and for many it’s a camouflage to cover something else.

For many bigger is better. There are many who have big homes and big cars but no money for gas for those cars. As far as the homes they don’t burn their heat in the winter or air in the summer, because it’s too expensive. This makes no sense, if you can’t afford it why have it? It’s  sad people freeze in their homes or burn up in their homes because they can’t afford to burn their heating and cooling systems.

As for sports, wow! People go crazy for sports teams and memorabilia. Millions are spent on items to include tickets, etc. People go bonkers to keep up with their teams, etc. They spend hundreds and thousands to see their favorite teams play. It’s like they’re possessed or obsessed by these things.

Those who go to church go faithfully, they pay their tithes faithfully not even understanding what tithing is truly about, who it was initially intended for, and how it was performed. They have no clue in Malachi when it talks about a storehouse that there were storehouses intended for keeping crop and meats fresh (like a modern day refrigerator). They are brainwashed by the church leaders of today. They go to church every Sunday and when they miss they feel guilty. This is because they are praising and worshipping their church leaders and not God the Father and His Son Jesus. Many churches of today are business oriented and not about gaining souls for their heavenly home. They are too worried about losing souls from their church homes. If you lose members then you can’t finance the sanctuaries, those nice homes, cars, and the lifestyle period! I know someone is mad and all I can say from the heart is if it hurts then it hurts for a reason. Take a closer look at why it bothers you. If it doesn’t pertain to you at all, then it shouldn’t bother you. People don’t get hurt by the truth unless it’s the truth! Get it????

Millions are faithfully engaged in things that are not of God the Father and His Son Jesus, but they profess them in their lives. They are committing adultery, fornicating, idolizing, stealing, killing, lying, involved in drugs, drunken with alcohol, deep into gambling, lovers of themselves, sexual immoral, and you name it. None of it is of God, at least not God the Father and His Son Jesus. Anything you do that dams your soul is a sin. If it has a hold on you, it’s a sin. The biggest problem in these situations is people want to say no one is perfect. Well, don’t the Word say “we are made in His image? When we surrender our lives to Him, then we take on His ways, because our ways aren’t His ways. We become new creatures and our old filthy ways are no more. That is; if you truly surrender. You won’t think, feel, or act the same and you will know without a doubt that you can live Holy. You can’t enter into the Kingdom of God unless you live Holy. Many leaders don’t live Holy, because although they’re leading their flocks, they themselves haven’t given up this world. The things they’re doing behind closed doors is no secret to the Father. To say no one is perfect is an age old excuse to keep doing what one wants to do, but as mentioned in an earlier post it can’t be used as a get of hell free card!

There are many things I could mention, but the last thing I want to write about is how people are faithful to worshipping other people. This is one of the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. People seem to lose their minds over celebrities and other people of status, when the only difference between them and those people are money and lifestyles. They still have the same issues in life (relationship issues, emotional issues, mental issues, self esteem and confidence issues, sickness, and death etc). Yet many go out of their way to worship them, (literally).

You can’t accept what you don’t know. You can’t receive what you don’t believe in. However, when you profess to believe and you live something else, then you are a liar. This post is intended for those types of people. You don’t realize that nothing is hidden from God. The playing and perpetrating will get you no where but damnation. The Bible  says “gain the whole world and lose your soul.” My question to you; is it worth it? It may seem so while you are living and breathing, but one day you won’t be. If heaven is your goal, then you must live now while you have the chance, so you can have a seat at the welcome table in Heaven.

Where is your faithfulness? Many of you abuse your temples (bodies), your sanctuaries by doing things in them that’s not of God, and you’re too worried about your earthly homes and not enough about gaining access to your heavenly home. None of us knows the day or the hour that our time on earth will come to an end. If you’re not ready, then it will be nobody’s fault but yours. This is an individual thing, no one can do it for you and you can’t do it for no one.

If you’re faithful to everyone and everything else, then you can’t be faithful to God. Well let me rephrase this statement. You are being faithful to your gods, but not God the Father and His Son Jesus. You probably wondering why I keep stating it as such. I write God the Father and His Son Jesus, because you can’t get to the Father less you go through the Son and together they make one. Another reason I phrase it as such is because many worship gods, but not the one that begins with the big G (God the Father and His Son Jesus). They profess it, but the truth is in their daily walk which reveals who they really are and what side they’re really on. Remember you can fool some people some of the time, but you can’t fool God none of the time. Where is your faithfulness??? If you’re above the ground and not beneath it then today is your day to get it right, you may not get another one!
