You Serve who you Love the Most

Standard

Oh, I know somebody will get mad over this one. Hopefully it will spark the need for change! The truth is the truth no matter who tell it. I believe with all of my being, “if you’re not sold out, you’re a sell out who’s on the wrong side). You already know if you’re for Him or against Him. There’s absolutely no other option! If you’re claiming to be for Him and not living for Him, you’re not serving Him!

Spitting words as sweet as a honeycomb is talking a bunch of NOTHING! You’re an ear tickler and that about sums it up! You’re all about a show and not at all sold out for the Kingdom of God. If we aren’t living what we profess we are putting our souls in jeopardy of damnation. It’s impossible to serve both Jesus and mammoth (the world/devil). I know you’re probably sick of me writing about it, but I won’t stop!

People have to figure out why they are risking their souls for this world. If anyone or anything is influencing you not to serve Jesus the Son and God our Father, then you have to leave them behind. Bottom line is you make the choice for yourself, you simply can’t blame anyone else. To give up the world is to gain eternal life and a place in the Kingdom. Talking the part, looking the part, acting the part is in vain when you’re not living the part. God continues to give us the opportunity to change, yet many refuse to take it, one day all chances will be null and void, because time will be up. You can’t get any get out of hell cards and you can’t get any rain checks. When it’s over it’s over! We choose where we spend eternity while we live here on earth!

Those who don’t want to give up this world are those who freely choose the side they are on. You can think all day and all night you’re on the Lord’s side, but it is truly a figment of the imagination if you’re not serving Him completely. You can’t do it sometimes whenever you feel like it. This walk is personal and daily. Smooth slick words won’t do it and as I always say your ability to mimic well won’t do it either. We must be in it all the way, not half way or some of the way; we must be in it all the way.

A lot of people would deceive you if there weren’t a gift called discernment and if the Holy Spirit didn’t lead and guide. People have it all down packed, they know how to do things and say things to make you think they are living what they profess. The problem for them is what’s in their hearts always comes and show who they really are. They are those “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” It’s truly a waste of time and energy pretending, because you get NO points for it. If anything or anyone causes you to want to do something against God it isn’t good for you in no shape, form, or fashion.

As individuals we can’t blame anyone else for our choosing to make someone or something our god. We can’t blame anyone else for the lives we choose of free will to lead. It’s no one’s choice to make other than the one who makes it. People do what they want, when they want despite the consequences of their actions. They don’t care the many people they’ve known to die, some still act as if they will never die. News flash; someday we all will die, no one on earth is exempt!

Many are confused, they have it all wrong. Although the Bible says “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature, the old things passed away, behold all things are become new.” Don’t get it misconstrued! When it says if anyone is in Christ, it goes way beyond professing it from your lips. We must be born again and we must live Holy! This is a daily journey, a daily walk! We become new creatures when we put off them old ways. You must shed them and leave them were they fell off; and don’t go back and pick them up again! There’s absolutely no other way to become this new creature. Either a person wants to do it or they don’t and believe me; their actions tell the truth! It shows it in their character, how they think, speak, and what they do. If you can’t hide it from the One who matters, why try to hide it from anyone?

Look at the reflection staring at you in the mirror and then face the truth. If you know (and you do) that you’re not living what you profess it’s time to start. Playing as if you do on certain occasions around certain people gets you no where. Every day you do this it gets you closer to hell. If you don’t make it into Heaven it’s nobody’s fault, but yours!

FACE THE TRUTH NOW OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES LATER

Standard

Today I am writing about each of us. I am writing to help someone understand something important. For those of you who believe in God, but know you’re not truly serving Him this is for you. Many in this world believe that because they go to church Sunday after Sunday, sing in the choir, work on the usher board, pay tithes, preacher, teachers, motivational speakers, bishops, are deacons in the church, holding different positions under different titles etc. etc it will help them to make it into the Kingdom. I’m here to tell you it won’t.

Stop believing you will get in because of what you do, because most people are doing it to be pleasing in the sight of man. Nothing matters if your heart and mind isn’t right. If your mind and heart isn’t changed nothing you do or have done will make a difference.

People must stop fooling themselves. Every single thing you do God knows. Everything you do in the dark or in what you think is secret; God knows. He knows your heart and He knows your thoughts. I don’t know why people continue to think they’re hiding. You’re not!

Your heart and mind must change. You can be saved all day, but if your heart and mind isn’t right, you being saved has no merit. I’m not trying to judge, and I didn’t make it up, God said it. He paved the way and He told us how to live. Many glorify man and they live to please him.

When your heart and mind has been renewed a change has taken place. You don’t desire to do the things you once did. The things you do will be from your heart and no longer to please man, they will be to please God. Your thoughts of everything will be different. You will constantly stay focused on being pleasing in the sight of God, it is what will keep you on track. You will be conscious and aware of your doings, sayings, comings, and goings. Until your heart and mind change you will profess Him from your lips but your hearts will be far from Him. It is why people will continue to live any kind of way and think they will have a seat in the Kingdom. To think this way is clear indication a person’s heart and mind aren’t right.

When your heart and mind is right your focus will always be on Jesus first. I’m not saying you will be reading the Word all day long, but you will be committed to reading it. I’m not saying you will be crying hallelujah all day and saying praise the Lord all day, but you will have a praise in your heart all of the time. I am saying there will be true conviction and true change. You won’t see or do things the same. There will be a change in you. You can’t do what you once did and you won’t have the desire to. You will understand everything against God will have to cease. You will look back and realize how God has kept you through your mess. You will cry out to Him, because although you didn’t realize it; He was there all the time. He protected you from dangers see and unseen when you know you were deep in your mess.

Too many want to do any and everything they choose, but they want to say they’re living for God. Lies! There’s no way. You can’t go to church on the Sunday and drunker than a dog on Monday through Saturday. You can’t continue to satisfy your fleshy desires (adultery, fornication, etc) or partying like a rock star up in the club and going to church on Sunday and say you’re dancing for Jesus. Some of you could get Emmys and Grammys for your church performances. You can’t be singing for Jesus and the devil both; that’s not serving the true and living God. Many of you claim you do it to reach the younger generation, etc. Lies! You do it because you’re straddling the fence. God isn’t listening to that excuse. It doesn’t work that way. You’re fooling yourselves. Not one time did God bow down and do what man did to get His point across. Not one time did He change to please man. Man do it, because they are straddling the fence.

God said “if you’re not for me, then you’re against me.” Point blank, there you have it! It’s in the Word, I didn’t make it up. You can keep fooling yourself if you want to. No way you can have a true personal relationship with the true living God and doing things against Him at the same time. You’re fooling yourself but when your heart and mind has changed you will see the light and you definitely will get understanding.

The bottom line of it all is I’m praying that you get it right and seek God while you can. Get on His side and stay there, because the ways of this world is going to become worse. Nothing but the Word of God will stand. If you don’t know if for yourself and have it in you, so sorry for you. If you read this and get mad, it only means I’m talking to you; about you. If it hurts, good! I’m trying to help somebody. I can’t save no one, but I can tell you about a Man who can save EVERYBODY. He doesn’t want anyone to perish.

CHOOSING SIDES

Standard

There is so much going around in this world today. The devil is busy and evil is alive and spreading like fire all over the world. Almost everything that’s right is frowned upon and looked at as wrong and a lot of wrong things are embraced and looked upon as right. Don’t you know it’s the trick of the enemy (the devil)? It is the devil’s job to kill, steal, and destroy. He is opposite of God. He wants the world in a chaotic state. He want things against God to be gloried and want those things to be worshipped and praised. If you don’t know what side you’re on, you will be persuaded easily to go the other way (against God).

I don’t know what anyone’s stance is when it comes to their belief’s and faith. All I know is through His Word I must give what is given to me. We are in trying times that will test our faith. If you don’t know in whom you serve the time to figure it out is right now. Right now is all we have, tomorrow isn’t promised. I already know there’s many who don’t believe and it’s your choice completely. Today I recommend Jesus. With a recommendation you still have a choice as to whether you accept it or not. It’s all about choices.

The world is a place we all live and this isn’t a choice. We were all born belonging to our world (the earth). This wasn’t a choice, being born isn’t our choice, to whom we’re born isn’t our choice, the color of our skin wasn’t a choice, and dying isn’t our choice. Even if a person chooses to take their own life the act of dying isn’t a choice. We all are born and we all will someday and somehow die. However, outside of that, life is all about choice.

Deciding to take the road towards salvation is beautiful and the best choice anyone can make. Staying on the road is a whole different story. I believe once a person is saved (Romans 10:9), I believe they’re saved forever. It’s nothing you can take back. How a person choose to live after taking that step is most important. Me of all people know that after most make that commitment they don’t remain as focused and most will venture off the course. I say this simply because many make the decision at an early age in their lives.

I received Jesus in my life at the age of 12. What did I know then? I didn’t know anything about anything. Regardless of that fact, I was still covered under His grace and mercy. I lived my life and did whatever I chose to do. Through it all He kept His loving arms around me. I had no clue, nor did I really think about it. It wasn’t until I was many years older that I decided to give up some things in my life. I became a wife and mother. After my children I knew I wanted to raise them knowing who God and His son Jesus was and I knew they would look at my walk. Just as my mother planted the seed; I too planted the seed for my children. Once I made the ultimate decision and was sincere about it, I never looked back and I haven’t to this day. Trust me, I went through some hills and some valleys, but on that tedious journey some things I simply never chose to partake in. I am so thankful for those decisions I made even back then when I really didn’t understand what serving God was all about. After many years of living my life it’s when the light finally came on and I was conscious of my walk. I longed for that personal relationship with God and since then my life has never been the same. He’s the greatest love I know or have ever known.

People think they have to give up everything in order to live a holy life, but you don’t. It’s how you look at things. People don’t want to give up the love they have for material things, money, people, idols, and many other distractions. You can have things, but if those things control you then it’s where the problem comes in. People are thirsty for so much; without understanding having those things WON’T quench their thirst. Look at people who are rich and can go, do, or buy anything they choose, YET many are unhappy. It’s because what they’re really seeking can’t be found in all of that.

The Bible said “to gain the whole world to lose your soul.’ This is what’s happening to many. many are so caught up in the worldly ways they’re literally selling their souls to the devil. If you don’t believe me I challenge you to read about Aleister Crowley, learn about how Michael Jackson and others honored this man. A man who was the most sadistic in his times, (don’t get mad at the truth, get educated). Just a little synopsis; he wrote evil books, one in particular on how to conjure up things in order to gain fame and fortune. That’s only a small piece of insight on the measures people are taking. Please educate yourselves, because people are truly doing anything and everything to gain their worldly desires.

To be in the world doesn’t mean you have to be of the world. Too many are confused about who they choose to serve. They don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings so they keep doing things they know they don’t want to do. Many are living lifestyles they’re uncomfortable with only to please someone else. Many in this world are unhappy, but don’t even know why. Something is missing and that something is Jesus.

When a person begin to live for Christ and they make up in their hearts and minds it’s what they want to do; EVERYTHING changes. You don’t see anything the way you once did. The things you do, the things you say, how you talk, how you walk (your daily living), how you think, how you dress, etc, it will all change, because your heart will be convicted. Some people and things you will let go because they’re not conducive to the lifestyle you now live.

People of this world are so fixated on titles, popularity, notoriety, recognition, fame, fortune, status, positions, and material things until it’s all they desire. They’re fixated on other people; worshipping and praising them to the max. Many make it a lifestyle to worship and follow those they love so much. They follow and worship people who don’t know them or even care to know them. Yet Jesus loves us all unconditionally, but millions don’t believe, because to them He’s imaginary and intangible. My heart cries for these people.

Many are lost to addictions of all kinds, they’re lost to depression, unhealthy love, unhappiness, suicidal thoughts, homicidal thoughts, and many other things that have them bound. It is all the work of the enemy. His job is to confuse the people, get them off track, and to control them by many things that will bound them up.

In these treacherous times, which by the way will become much worse, I pray people began to seek out Jesus. What you see, wars and rumors of wars, plagues (different viruses), etc are only things happening according to the Word. It’s warnings for us all. There are many god’s, but there’s only one God and His son Jesus. Every day we live as I said many times before is a day to get things in our lives right. It’s not by chance. It’s out of His love for us. He doesn’t desire for any of us to perish.

All I can do is recommend you to Jesus and pray that you choose this day whom you will serve. Blessings to you, you, and you!
