Following After the Flesh or the Spirit

Standard

People it’s time to get it right! Many people claim to love Jesus, yet they are still following the flesh. It doesn’t matter the lies people tell others or the lies they tell self Jesus knows the truth! No one can fool God the Father or His Son Jesus! The games people are playing will lead to damnation if they don’t get right with Jesus. Many choose to remain more focused on living deceitful lives full of lies rather than to commit and submit to Jesus. Sadly they are at risk of damnation/hell. Nothing a person does is hidden from God. The Father and Son knows all!

People are ignorant by thinking they can fool Jesus. A person will either follow after the flesh or the spirit. Whoever or whatever they love most it is what or who they will follow. A pretender (a talker not walker), will always talk one thing yet do another. With them anything goes, they are okay with whatever! They are hypocrites who mock and mimic true Saints of God and God Himself! However, the truth is always shown in the walk; either it will be straight or crooked. Pretenders will always be revealed by their walks, because the flesh will overcome and reveal their true character. The junk inside will come out. The truth prevails!!

A person who is about the business of Jesus will walk after the spirit through the good, bad, and the ugly! They stand boldly on the Word of God out front and behind closed doors. They talk and walk it! They have personal relationships with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! They have daily prayer lives and they read and study the Word! Their focuses are discipleship and Heaven/eternal life!

A person walking after the flesh is a pretender and they willfully and easily conform to the world. They are like ships without sails and petals in the wind. They speak and behave worldly, because they are not the new creatures they profess to be. They are double minded. They seek value and approval from man and they worship him too. They seek gratification of the flesh (sex, fame, fortune, material prosperity, notoriety, money, to be worshipped), etc.

Either you’re in or out! If you’re walking after the flesh you’re out! You can either be for or against Him. No one can have it both ways. Good or bad we will all someday be rewarded for our choice; which will be Heaven or hell. People who think they are getting away or not getting away! Pay day is coming after while!

It’s not in the Bible

Standard

I heard people talking about God and they said He is whatever you want Him to be. I disagree! Some things He will never be no matter what someone says. They went on to say He can be a she if you want Him to be. Lies, lies, lies! Nowhere in the Bible does it reference God as a she. It get on my nerves when people try to change the words in the Bible to please them.

Jesus was given to the world as God’s only begotten Son, who was once a flesh and blood male, but became spirit after dying for our sins. First of all God is a Spirit, but; the Bible still reference Him in the form of a man to us NOT a woman. It says Father and Son, nothing about Mother and daughter or Father and daughter. It specifically says Father and His Son Jesus. He will comfort you as a mother and father when you have none or even if you have living parents, but He’s never referenced as she.

Many people aren’t truly connected to Him, therefore they don’t have a personal relationship. They go by what they heard and not by personal experience. They also go by whatever makes them feel good at the moment. When you have a relationship with Him you will read His Word. If you don’t, then you’re not doing what you should as a child of the most High. It also means you need to re-examine yourself and get aligned with the Word of God, so you’re not deceived.

There are many people who know they aren’t for real about their walk with Him, therefore to them He is a lot of things the Word doesn’t mention. Me, I go strictly by the Word of God. I’m not trying to add to it or take away from it. I don’t try to be this to please one person and that to please another. I’m straight up and straight forward. I believe in the Father and the Son, period! I’m not trying to force my God on anyone just as no one can ever force their god on me. We all choose what we choose and one day we will bear the consequences of the choices we’ve made.

There’s a lot of things people take out of context when it comes to the Bible, but one thing there’s no mistake about nor is it debatable. He is referenced in the Word of God as a He and NOT a she!

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.

 

 

You Must Walk the Talk (For Real)

Standard

Okay, I am going to talk about something that I am tired of hearing people talk about. There are far too many (so called) Holy people who don’t believe the words coming from their own mouths. This is an issue for many, because they can’t fathom the thought of living holy due to their inability and willingness to do so.

I’m here to tell you as a living witness it’s possible. It’ not about being perfect, because to man you will never be good enough, but you can be to God. It’s about knowing that you know in your heart and soul that Jesus is pleased with what He hears and sees in you. Despite of what the world says about you. They will hate on you, talk about you, be jealous of you, envy you, and even hate you, because of their short comings.

People make choices for many different reasons. People lie and pretend for many different reasons. None of it matters, because at the end of the day; God the Father and His Son Jesus knows all of what you do, say, and think are secrets. None of what you do or say is unknown to God. No matter how you play church, shuck, and jive, you can’t fool God. God cleans up whom He calls. He Qualifies who He elects. That’s point blank! “Many are called, but few are chosen” that is straight from the Bible. The truth always show in people’s actions (whether said, done, or whatever).

I’ve told people over and over that if you want to keep living any kind of way go for it, but it’s NOT the way of the Lord. Our way isn’t His way! This may be a Burger King World, but He’s not a Burger King God. People can keep fooling themselves or they can make a conscious decision to get it right. There is only one way and that is through Jesus the Son and by living according to God’s word.

People are damming themselves every day because they’re trying to live their way when it’s against God’s word. People want to be associated or affiliated with God the Father and His Son Jesus through different titles and organizations, but they don’t want to live according to His Word.

There are people who are designated leaders who are doing everything under the sun against God’s teachings. There are people going to church faithfully as if that’s going to get them into Heaven. They go out of tradition, but as the Word says “their hearts are far from Him.” People are serving man and worshipping man. They are dedicated to man, but NOT God. They say they love Him, but the Word says “if you love Him, you will keep His Commandments.)

You can live a Holy life if you choose, but it has to be a commitment to God and His Son Jesus first and then to yourself. You MUST give up this ole nasty world. There is NO way around it. You must truly submit to God and know whom you are serving. You should pray for both the Fruits and the Gifts of the Spirit. With Discernment you will know false teachers, false preachers, and false worshippers as they present themselves. They are seeking whom they can devour (doing exactly what pleases the devil).

When you’ve given up and submitted to God giving up this ole world has no affect on you, because you know you will gain eternal life. The world will no longer look or feel the same. The devil will try you left and right, but the more you stand against him and call him out, he will begin to flee. There’s no doubt you will become a new creature. You won’t be the same, you can’t be the same. All of your old ways of doing things (talking, walking, dressing, thinking, feeling, etc) will change. If you’re still doing it the same way then you need to re-examine yourself, because something is wrong.

I’ve found that people don’t receive it, because they don’t believe it. They don’t believe it, because they’re NOT ready to get off of the fence pole and start living for God. They want to keep a foot in the world. This mentality won’t work! Many will lose their soul’s if they don’t get it together.

People still want to fornicate, commit adultery, worship other people and idols, conform to the world and it’s ways, they want to do everything they want to do when they know it’s against God’s Word. Yet they are leaders and teachers in the church. They are people sitting on the pews every Sunday claiming to be this when they know they are that! Leaders and teachers are people who supposed to be living by a standard and by example. These are the folks being worshipped, idolized, and followed. Blind leading the blind and it’s NOT God’s way!

People are comfortable, compliant, and content with mixing the world with the church. You can do this when you’re still in the world and it won’t bother you, but if you’re a true Saint, you’re not having it, because you know it’s NOT God’s way. God said specifically to separate ourselves, but people still want to mix and mingle.

You can say you love Him all day long, you can hoop and holler all day long, you can cry and sling snot all day long, but if you’re not living what you profess all you’re doing is putting on a show for man. That’s it!!! Like it or not, it’s the truth! Man has no Heaven or Hell to put you in. In fact man has to stand before God for his and herself.

If you read the Word you know He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. He’s Alpha and Omega, He’s everything! Yet, many choose the world and all of it’s glory (riches, fame, fortune). People build and lay all of their treasures up on earth. They seek fame and fortune, the glamour and the glitz. Nothing here on earth will last and when we die NONE of it is any good to us. If we gain the whole world we WILL lose our souls. I didn’t make it up, it’s in the Word.

It’s your choice what you decide, but know this one thing: time will run out for pretending to be this, when you know you’re that. When you turn it over to Jesus and you accept Him and live your life for Him, those who claim to love you sometimes will walk away. Let them walk! On this journey you have to stand on your own and alone. It’s no buddy system, you have to do it on your own.

If you know you’re sold out to God and His Son Jesus and without any apprehension you can face the man in the mirror and know you are living inside of your home what you profess to the world, then God is pleased with you. This is what it takes to live Holy. You must give up the world, you must die daily, you must be renewed daily. Every day you live you honor God for grace, mercy, and your life. You think God before you do or say anything. In the beginning it may seem hard, but if you’re sincere it becomes more doable; then it becomes a way of life.

There are plenty of people who claim to love me, but I know in their hearts they can’t stand to see me coming. I’m often times never included, but I honestly care less, it’s not about people, it’s about God and my relationship with Him. Some people straight hate on me, because I won’t do what they do. I have given up the ways of the world, I choose Jesus not sometimes when it’s convenient and for show, but all of the time 24/7 hours a day, 365 a year, because it’s necessary and the ONLY way I can live with a peace that surpasses all understanding!!!

I’ve gone through so much, I’ve seen and dealt with things most wouldn’t believe or could accept. I’ve been tried by the fire, yet I stand; and in my standing, if I hadn’t of gone through all I went through to get here today, my life would be different. I wouldn’t have made it through, but because I trusted in God and I cast my cares and my fears on Him, I made it through EVERY single time. It has made me much stronger. I work within the power God gave me and because I believe, I receive much strength. I know He’s real, I know what He can and will do if you allow. It’s possible to live Holy, but you must truly want it.

Many days you may want to throw in the tile, but then you remember troubles don’t last always and “joy cometh in the morning.” We have to learn to tarry and know He is EXACTLY who He says He is. That’s what I believe!!! I’m not trying to force it on anyone, I’m simply telling you about me. I’m telling you what I know. I don’t take the Word and try to twist it or manipulate it, I see it for what it is. Accept it or not! There is a price to be paid for taking from the Word and for adding to the Word, both are against the Word of God.

I want people to truly grasp the fact that there will be no get out of hell tickets passed out. There will be no excuses accepted, because you already have been given guidance. The time is now, tomorrow may never come! While people are trying to fake it, it’s blocking them from ever making it into the Kingdom.

No Support

Standard

A lot of people have gone through a lot of things both good and bad. Many people end up depressed because they received no support from their family and friends. I wanted to write about this issue. I know it can be difficult to deal with, but remember one thing; this is your life and it belongs to no one but you. It’s a good feeling when people acknowledge your accomplishments and let you know they’re proud of you or when someone is there for you when you’re going through troubled times. However, a lot of people don’t have this type of support. One thing I learned years ago is that because of who people are, some aren’t able to be happy for others. In my life whatever I do or have done, I did it for me and that’s the bottom line support or no support. There won’t always be support for you and you can’t let it get you down.

When people can’t say congratulations or be happy for you, it’s not you, it’s them. Some people can’t be happy for others because they are allowing jealousy, envy, and that ole hater’s spirit to interfere. This happens because some people aren’t happy with who they are or where they are in life. It affects their ability to be genuinely happy for others or for them to be there for others. Life goes on and you can’t let people cause you to lose your drive or your joy; it belongs to you NOT anyone else.

The same goes for when you’re going through and no one is there for you. Some people don’t want to be bothered with anyone else when they themselves are going through, because they’re too caught up in their own troubles. A lot of people don’t understand when an individual is there for others it can oftentimes help deal with their own problems. Some people are just plain selfish, but the fact of the matter is; if you don’t get support you must keep on striving. Don’t expect it; this way if you get it great and if you don’t it won’t affect you. You must be able to stand on your own and oftentimes that means standing alone.

I encourage you to be strong! Don’t let the actions of others dampen your spirit. If you do; it means you’ve given power to others allowing them to affect your ability to be the best you that you can be! When people give their power to others they sometimes lose confidence and faith in self. Never allow this to happen to you. There are plenty of people who can’t seem to function without the support of other people. These types of people often have difficulty functioning in life. Your life belongs to you and no matter how much people say they love you they won’t always support you or show happiness for what you’re doing or for what you’ve done.  No matter the case, don’t let it rock your world, keep on keeping on!!
