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!!

Blind to Your sins

Standard

If you’re reading the Bible any at all you know if you’re living for or against God. Although some people think their sins are hidden they are not and therefore those people are fooling themselves. They are too caught up in what they want to do; they are double minded and living ways which are displeasing to Jesus.

Despite of what many have said, there is only ONE way to the Father (God) which is through His Son Jesus. We can’t live any kind of way and think we’re Heaven bound. It doesn’t work that way! The Bible says “strait is the gate and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Life may have crooks and bends, but the “Way” doesn’t have crooks and bends. There is only ONE way! A person is either for Him or against Him. I don’t care who you are, what your title is, or your position it applies to all. There are no big I’s or little you’s in the Kingdom of God and His ways are not man’s ways.

People are sold out to man. Their biggest concerns are appearing righteous in the eyesight of man. They care about what man has to say. They want to be pumped up in the eyesight of man. God sees everything we do whether good or bad. He knows all of the wolves in sheep’s clothing and He knows they come in all forms and fashions. Putting on a show in front of man may get you “accolades” in man’s eyesight, but in the sight of God you’re getting a foot closer to hell if you don’t repent and change.

It never ceases to amaze me how motivated people pretend to be for Jesus only to please man. They go through the motions of trying to present themselves as if they’re holy only to please man. As soon as man’s head is turned they are turning up doing whatever they want to do. It’s foolish, because the same man they are pretending for will someday bow to the Father just as they will someday bow! No one is exempt. One day “EVERY knee shall bow and heart confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of the Father.”

For those who are living double lives God has His eyes on them? People are living for who they love the most. IF it were Jesus people wouldn’t be double minded in their ways, period! The Son and the Father sees all! I don’t care how much a person look or acts the part; if they’re not living for Jesus they’re serving the devil and are a part of darkness.

You’re outside of His will when you’re doing things your way! People are quick to say a person is anointed. How can a person be anointed when they aren’t even serving God! People continue to get the anointing mixed up with emotions. When a person is truly serving the true and living God they will know and understand the difference.

People are completely blind to their sins. Why do you think this is so? It is because they are in love with what they do, want, and desire. They are in bondage and don’t realize it. They are captivated by the ways of the world and it’s why they go along with anything to get along. They conform to the ways of the world.

I’ve long come to realize people don’t like the truth. I’m not here to water down anything. The truth is the truth like it or not. Too many people who are professing Christ are tiptoeing around the truth. Not me!! It is what it is and it goes for me, you, and everyone else.

Doing Right Amongst the Do Wrongs

Standard

I found out when you have given your life to Christ and you are for real about your walk with the Lord people can’t deal with the new you. It’s very sad to me how people don’t want to associate with you if you’re not sinning with them the way you used to.

Some people claim they love Jesus, but when they find out your walk is serious knowing they are faking, they don’t want anything to do with you. They treat you like you’re doing something wrong. The only words I have for those people are ” I’m praying for you and so long.” I’m not turning back for no one or nothing. People make this journey way more difficult then it should be and I believe it’s because those people don’t want to give up their old ways. They think their joy is in the world, when the world has nothing to offer any of us, other than death if people don’t come up out of it.

The Bible mentions how people will be offended concerning the Word of God. It is so true! There are a lot of people who have an issue with you when you start talking about the goodness of the Lord. They don’t want to see you or hear you. Isn’t it sad? If you want to do something displeasing to God then they are all for it, but want to do right; then they have issues with you!

It’s very unimaginable for some people to believe anyone can live a Holy life. If a person doesn’t believe it, then they don’t truly believe in the Word. Jesus wouldn’t have said it were so if it weren’t possible. Anyone who chooses to walk the straight and narrow for Jesus can do so, if they choose.

Doing right is just as easy to do as doing wrong. There are rewards for both which will either be Hell or Heaven. A lot of people simply do not want to give up their old ways. They think they have it going on in this world doing what the world loves doing which is sinning.

The Bible says “people will love the world more than they love Jesus.” It is very true! It is seen every single day. It is very sad to see how the people of the world are right back in the days of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah. People are blind by their sins. They don’t realize time is at hand. No one is here to stay.

No matter what or who, don’t allow anything thrown at you to shake your faith. If people don’t want to be around you because your life has changed, then oh well. Keep it moving! We are supposed to be changed! If people don’t like who you have become in Christ, it’s their problem not yours. Keep going and growing in Christ!

Sometimes people will test you just to see are you who you proclaim to be. Be that light in this dark world. Regardless of what you used to do remember you’re not the person you once were. When people come at you with the old mess stand firmly on the Word of God. Tell them boldly; no way, not me! Let them know you’re not what you used to be! You are now a part of the Royal Family with the greatest King on High sitting on the Throne.

I thank Him everyday for taking a wretched soul like mine cleaning it up. I thank Him for giving me the desire to truly serve Him. When people shun me, it is alright; they can’t take my joy, because they didn’t give it.

Celibacy is Very Much Doable

Standard

It’s foreign to most. Many can’t fathom the thought of being celibate. Could you do it? Celibacy is a choice and state of mind. Most are led by the desires of their flesh trying to satisfy it at all costs. My thought is any person who is truly changed in Christ are considered as “new creatures.” It’s not my words, it’s straight from the Bible. Therefore in my opinion if you’re really concerned about your soul and Heaven then celibacy will be a choice you would consider. The problem is many are bind and bound by the lust of their flesh. It controls a lot of people.

For those driven by the lusts of their flesh, to most sex is high on their list of important things. I personally believe anyone who feels this way has some maturing to do. It’s a shallow way of thinking. I know, because I was once there myself. I’ve confessed and repented, but it still shames me when I think of it. I thank the Son and Father for changing me!! I’m thankful for my eyes becoming opened and for accepting the change.

In society sex actually comes before most marriages. I would be a hypocrite if I say I didn’t indulge in sex before marriage, but it’s because I didn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus. I was brought up in church and saved at an early age, but I didn’t develop a personal relationship for many years afterwards. After truly developing a personal relationship with Him, I’m no longer my own or the same. When you know better you should do better. Most won’t because they’re too caught up in the desires of their flesh and this world.

Every time I see social media all I see is butts, muscles, skimpy clothes, and boobs. No one or man has to expose his or her body the way many choose to. No matter what people think or feel about self, it shows a lack of respect. These people are seeking some type of gratification many don’t understand a lot of it is due to insecurities or the lack of something. Society is sexually hypnotized and mesmerized, it’s all many think about. People are risking health, lives, and relationships over sex. I saw a documentary about Atlanta, GA concerning the AIDS epidemic. What I saw and heard was horrific. It’s very sad and it’s scary so many are walking around with AIDS and some are still having unprotected sex. What’s even sadder is a lot of people don’t know they have HIV or AIDS.

Whatever your lifestyle it’s a personal choice, but if people are going to have sex they need to protect themselves as best as possible. The only full proof protection is abstinence. In my opinion any person who can’t go without sex is a person with a lot more growing to do. Sex isn’t everything and a person won’t die if they don’t have sex. People are simply very infatuated by it.

To be celibate is indeed special and it’s 100% doable if you commit yourself. Is sex worth losing your soul, that is the question one must ask his or herself? Personally I say NO! The Bible says the Spirit is willing, but the Flesh is weak. This means you do not have to fall into your temptations. You must pray and have a daily renewal of your mind. Seek Jesus first in all you do, if you do your ways and thoughts will no longer be your own.

I’ve lived celibate for many years, most don’t have any idea. I haven’t lost the desire, but it no longer controls me, I control it. When the urge comes I pray and ask the Lord to take it away, because I know it’s nothing but the devil. It goes away just as quick as it comes. My main focus in life is Jesus. He keeps me grounded, He keeps me focused on doing what’s right not SOME of the time, but all of the time. There are a lot of people to include so called Saints who claim to be Holy who are single but aren’t celibate. They are liars! Yes, I mean it! If you’re still controlled by your flesh then you’re doing something against God.

Anyone can do whatever they set their mind to do. When I chose Jesus and gave up all of the other mess my walk became completely different. To most it’s rubbish, they don’t believe me, because they can’t do it or should I say WON’T do it. They see me as attractive and fairly young so I must be having sex. Lies, lies, lies!!!!! I don’t care what anyone believes about me. I know what’s going on in my life. When you truly choose Jesus you have to give up this world and by doing that you learn that you are no longer controlled by your fleshly desires. Heaven and eternal life in Heaven NOT hell is my goal! I don’t seek fame and fortune, because whatever God has for me is mine. For the rest of my life my journey is about serving my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and God the Father. You can’t get to the Father unless through the Son.n

We’re all his Children, yet not all Children of God

Standard

God wishes for none of us to perish. We are all His children, but we aren’t all children of God, because we all don’t believe. He doesn’t wish for one single soul to be lost. There are so many things that happens to us which we consider as unfortunate. However, many times God allow things to happen to get our attention. Many times we go through things and don’t learn anything. God allows us to do it our way. He isn’t a God who throws Himself on us, but He does sometimes do things to try and get our attention.

There are many people who refuse to listen to Jesus speaking to them, because they want to do things their way. They don’t want to give up the wrong for the right. They want to use the bits and pieces of the Bible when feasible for them. He speaks to us, but many won’t listen, because they are too busy doing what they do. Sometimes God throws something at us to knock us down and into reality. Some people stop and listen for a moment, but soon as their crisis is over they go right back to doing what they used to do. He doesn’t force Himself into our lives. He’s standing and waiting for all of His children, but many won’t answer the call.

I have a friend who just got out of ICU, he fell and cracked his skull causing bleeding on the brain. He told me God spoke to Him and now he’s running for Jesus. It made me cry, because I know the type of person he once was. He acknowledged Jesus and God the Father, but He wasn’t running the race. He had a clear revelation and now he is a messenger. He said falling busting his skull was the best thing ever happened to him. He had an unfortunate thing to happen to get his attention, the fortunate part it all is it worked. He is now on Jesus’s side spreading the good news!! I’m ecstatic!

I’ve known plenty of people who had accidents, but they weren’t granted the opportunity to live and tell it. It’s sad, but it happens. That’s why it’s important to stop playing with God, stop mocking God, stop mimicking the Holy Spirit, and so forth, because we don’t know when He’s to return. People don’t know if they will have a chance to repent or not. Me, personally I wouldn’t EVER risk the chance of losing my soul. Nothing or no one is more important to me than Jesus my Lord and Savior and our Father God.

Salvation is free bought with a price which was the crucifixion of Jesus for our sins. We don’t have to live in sin, people choose too! Living right is as easy as living wrong. It’s all about choices! I have gone through a lot, but I’ve learned from it all. When Jesus removed the scales from my eyes I never missed what I gave up, not one single bit. I don’t play church nor do I play with God. I live for Him daily!!

No one knows what the next second will bring or if there will be time for repentance. He’s standing at the door of all hearts knocking ready to come in. Many are constantly risking their souls because they want to live how they want to live and not according to the Word of God the Father and His Son Jesus. Some people’s attention He will get others He won’t. It depends on what the individual chooses.

Many want to blame Him when things go wrong, but never acknowledged Him in the first place. People easily accepts good, but don’t want to accept evil. You can’t have one without the other. No matter what Jesus is there. If you give up on Him, you never REALLY had Him. If you don’t have Him, it’s because you don’t believe. If you don’t believe, it’s your personal choice! There’s only ONE way to the Father and it’s not through the universe, it’s through His Son Jesus! He loves you all and wishes for none of you to perish, but the choice to choose is yours!

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.

 

 

Don’t Let Your Excuses Get You in Hell

Standard

I see a very serious issue when it comes to the excuses made to do wrong. Three of the worst excuse are #1 No one is perfect, # 2 God knows the heart., and # 3 Doing it to reach the younger generation.

My brothers and sisters I am here to tell you that those excuses will not get you off the hook. They are excuses that if a person keeps using them to justify their wrongs will get them straight inside the gates of hell.

Jesus Christ left a guide for living it’s called the Bible. Inside the Bible there is specific guidance we all must adhere to and follow in order to stand inside the Gates of Heaven. Too many people want to water down and sugarcoat the truth. They want to change it in a way what they do is downplayed. I’m here in the name of Jesus to tell you your ways of thinking are wrong.

I’m not here to judge, because it is already written, there is specific guidance as to how we should live in order to make it to the Kingdom of God. We must be born and again and we must be Holy. The Bible says when you’re changed you are a new creature. Too many people want to claim it, but they know they’re liars. When you are a new creature you put off your old ways. When you’re a new creature everything about you changes.

I’m not here to change or save anyone, because I don’t have that power. I am here to inform, because the Bible says people are destroyed due to the lack of knowledge. Many get the knowledge but don’t use it or accept it. God wishes for none of us to perish, but we have to stop playing and get real about this journey. The Bible is being fulfilled everyday, yet people are still doing whatever they want to do. People are playing dangerous games with their souls.

No one is perfect: No one sure isn’t in the sight of man, but we are to God like His Son Jesus, He made us in His image, therefore to God when we walk in His light and way, He sees us as perfect. However, people want to use this excuse as if because their not perfect it’s okay to mess up over and over again. No it’s not! You have to choose for real who’s side you’re on and stay there. I don’t care what you do none of it matters if you’re not on the Lord’s side. Too many people are playing and faking without true understanding that their taking a chance with their lives and in danger of making hell their eternal home.  If you’re not on Jesus side, then you’re on the other side. Those are the only two sides, there is no in between or neutrality. The Word says you’re either for Me or against Me. People can make all the excuses they want to do wrong; it won’t work. If you truly love Him you will follow Him and live by His Word. If you don’t you’re against Him and you’re still doing what the world does. If you’re on His side, you no longer want to be a part of the other side in no shape, form, or fashion. Many want to say they love Him and are on His side, but their ways of life tells the truth. You can’t have it both ways, it’s either one or the other. You can’t fool God.

God knows the heart: He most certainly does, but this doesn’t mean you’re off of the hook. People get this so confused. A person can do the greatest good, but at the same time be absolutely NO good at all. The truth of who they are lies inside. This is why we see so much racism in this world, it comes from the hearts of men and women. God knows the heart, you can’t shuck and jive Him. He knows there are wolves in sheep’s clothing. He knows people can do good in the eyes of man, but in their hearts they are horrible individuals. So for people to think by them saying God knows their hearts is a way to get off the hook, you’re sadly mistaken. He knows the heart and he knows whose hearts has changed and whose hearts hasn’t, you can’t fool Him. People do good deeds to please man, but God knows the truth. Having good intentions, but do bad things isn’t getting you off the hook. If you’re a new creature your hearts and minds will be in sync. You will think good things as well as do them.

Doing certain things to reach the youth: Show me anywhere in the Bible were God changed who He was to minister to anyone. Show me where He looked like the people He was around in order to minister. Show me where He did what they did to minister to them. You can’t find it and you won’t find it, because it’s not in the Bible. God is an unchanging God. Although He set amongst thieves, publicans, etc. etc., He did not do anything other than minister and teach them. He didn’t do what they did, look like them, or speak like them. He didn’t change for anyone to include the children. Too many people are clearly still worldly and so in order to justify how they look, speak, or act they use the LIE and excuse they’re doing it to reach the youth. These people are still in the world doing what the world does. When you are a new creature you certainly don’t want to look like the world. There is a newness and distinctness about you. For those who are saying they are doing this or that to reach the youth, these people are false. It doesn’t take any of that to minister to the youth. Matter fact people should always and with honor present themselves as if they were before God. Would they stand before God looking the way some of them look or behaving the way some behave? People don’t understand God can’t be fooled and you can’t get to Him lest through the Son, Jesus! They see and know it all! Stop trying to fool man, it’s not doing anything but pushing you closer to hell. If you’re reaching the youth, then you should be teaching them God is an unchanging God and you don’t have to give nothing but the unadulterated Word, period!

I’m writing this today and I hope it speaks and resonates in some hearts today. I’m not condemning or judging, but I’m writing what thus saith the Lord. My prayer is people get it right before it’s too late. People falter, waver, and change in an instance, but God doesn’t; EVER! I love you in the name of Jesus and I pray people make a true decision to get and stay on the Lord’s side. Nothing you gain in this world will benefit you when you die. You can gain the whole world and lose your soul. The world isn’t worth it!!
