Don’t let the World be Your Downfall

Standard

I know a lot of people get sick of me talking about this. God wishes for none of us to perish. Too many people are against Him in these days and times. It saddens me how some people simply don’t believe while others who claim to believe act as if they don’t. They live something opposite of what they profess. They pretend to be one way when they are actually another.

God can’t use any of us if we are “lukewarm.” In His Word He says “He will spew you from His mouth.” He despise “lukewarm” and it is going to be the downfall for many. People choose the world when everyday people are corrupting the world and it is being filled with more and more evil workings of people. People profess to love Jesus and God the Father, yet they live the lives of hypocrites. In all honesty can’t use anyone who is living this way.

Too many people make excuses for being how they choose to be. It’s all an excuse to continue to live for the world. None of us can live eternally with Jesus if we are trying to straddle the invisible fence I often mention. People who do this are only fooling themselves because God knows and sees it all.

This world isn’t worth losing your soul over. If Jesus isn’t worth a person serving with honesty and truth, then they don’t have a chance with anything else! Jesus is the ONLY way and none of us can get to the Father lest we go through the Son.

Every little thing a person who claims to love Jesus does to try an please man or hide from man is sealing their fate for sure damnation if they don’t change. Stop being a man pleaser and be a loyal Jesus pleaser. Stop trying to hide from man when Jesus sees every move you make. It doesn’t make sense and people obviously have such a profound disconnect until they think they are pulling the wool over Jesus eyes! It just isn’t possible!

If the world is who your flesh chases after then it is who you love the most. That means you’re not on Jesus side. It means you’re against Him and not for Him. It means if you don’t change you will gain the world, but lose your soul.

Our home here is only temporary. We all have a permanent home waiting and we decide now where it will be (Heaven or hell). When the curtain of life falls for the last time it is done and over; we get no more opportunities to change. We will have sealed our fate. Each day is a day to make the right decision. Each day we get is Him showing us how much He loves us; He gives us a chance to get right with Him. Still people continue to play with God.

Even if you say you choose Jesus if you’re double minded and living something other than what you profess you have NOT chosen Him. If you are living this way you DO NOT love Him. I don’t care what you say or think you DO NOT love Him and He isn’t pleased with what you’re doing! Please get right before it’s too late!!

The Time is now, Tomorrow may be too Late

Standard

Your time and my time is winding up. I’m putting me in it, because I’m not exempt. Everyday we get closer to stepping out of life’s backdoor into eternal life. I’ve repeatedly written and said how we live now determines what we will step into. Every person on earth has the opportunity to live eternally with the King, and despite this fact, people still don’t want to give up this world. People are still playing church and playing with Jesus the Son of God and God Himself; as if it is all a big game.

Please don’t let Him catch you unprepared! Look around at everything going on in the world these days. We are living in the last days. I know people think it’s something that has been said for years. I disagree, because back several years ago, I never seen the things I’ve seen happening today. Years ago I couldn’t see the Bible being fulfilled as I see it today.

Many who claim to be God’s children are still living in their “have it my way world.” I expect it from nonbelievers, but those who are claiming to be Saints shouldn’t have this type of damning mentality. It’s all fun until the ticket has been punched and eyes have closed for the final time. It is then over! The sad part is no one knows when it will be, yet people continue to gamble with their lives. This is no game, it is for real!

There is nothing the world can give a man other than what man deems as important(wealth, glitz, glamour, fame, fortune, etc). First of all it’s always bought with a price. None of what the world has to offer you can take with you when you die. The price for Salvation is completely free. The part people don’t seem to comprehend is although it’s free, it doesn’t mean there isn’t a price for how you live. There is a standard as to how we should live and it involves living according to God’s Word.

People are always complaining about nothing being free. Yet, Salvation is free, but many choose to not accept it. All we have to do is accept Jesus as our Savior (Romans 10:9). Being saved is the first step on this journey. After becoming Saved a person can’t live any kind of way and think because they are saved they will go to Heaven. No! It doesn’t work like that! The Bible is our Guide as to how we should live. We can’t be “lukewarm” we have to be either hot or cold. We can’t be both! This means you must either live for Him or you’re living against Him. You can’t be half way in it, you can’t be in it when you feel like it. You must be all the way in it at all times!

A person’s works, going to church, tithing, duties in church, etc none of it will get a person into Heaven. We must be saved, born again (a new creature putting off the old ways), and we must live a Holy life! It is up to each and everyone of us what we choose. Calling yourself a Saint doesn’t make you one! Going to church doesn’t make you a Saint. You must be saved, born again, and living Holy according to God’s Word.

Many says it’s difficult, but as I’ve said many times before; it’s no harder than a person makes it. It’s just as easy to do right as it is to do wrong. People do wrong with no thought, but you must be very conscious and in the moment when you’re a true Saint, so that you continue to do right. You must keep Jesus on your mind and His Words in your heart and on your mind. His Word convicts a true Saint. Being a new creature makes you self aware and it keeps you from wanting to do anything against God.

I’m a witness if you’re truly God’s child then you’re truly a “new creature” and the last thing you want to do is something displeasing in the sight of God. Doing wrong isn’t debatable or an option. As a child of God your mind and heart is on Jesus and your heart convicts you of any wrong. As a child of God you know how to resist the devil in whatever forms he presents himself. The heart and soul of a true Saint is always focused on doing right, even when the devil try to throw stuff at you.

Many need to get it together. The time is right now! Too much is going on in this world and trust me; man’s agenda is NOT God’s agenda. Man is trying to do all sorts of evil things, but those very people will someday answer to the Father for all they’ve done and trying to do. “Every knee shall someday bow and every tongue shall confess, He is Lord! People must do it now while He’s listening because later when He has turned a death ear, it will be too late

Walking by the Pearly Gates on Your Way to Hell

Standard

I want to write about living right while you can, because time is winding up for us all. I don’t want anyone to lose their soul. Mother, father, sister, brother, daughter, son, and no one else can go to Heaven or Hell in your place. We all choose which eternity we will have.

Many people who THINK they are going to Heaven are Hell bound. Oh  I know someone don’t like this truth, but I still have to tell it. This post is for EVERYONE who profess Him with their lips but minds and hearts are far from Him. Time is OUT for playing! People need to look around at what is going on in this world, everything is changing. People are mocking God and doing any and everything they think they’re big and bad enough to do. They are professing one thing and living another. You can’t fool God!

There are so many people who are leading others in the wrong direction. However, it’s up to each of us individually to know the way for ourselves. Many people are too caught up with praising and worshipping others, but don’t have no connection to God and His Son Jesus. They are too busy trying to look good in the eyes of man. Their dedication and commitment lies with man and not God. I’m sure as you read this post you can relate. You too know people who are talking out the side of their necks.

Some people act holy, but they have only learned how to play the role. They portray themselves as such, but they are NOT! They got the talk and the demeanor down packed. They feel their versions of the Holy Spirit on cue and they speak in their made up tongues fluently. There are many tongues, but only one that is a gift of the Holy Spirit, the others have NOTHING to do with the Holy Spirit. The Bible says you speak in tongue to edify Jesus when it’s a conversation between you and Him. However, when people are standing before the church talking to the congregation and all of a sudden start speaking in their versions of tongues they are out of order when there is no one there to interpret. I see this so much it’s ridiculous. What’s even more ridiculous is how the congregation gets on board with it when they didn’t have a clue what the person was saying. It’s out of order! These preachers, teachers, apostles, bishops, evangelists, and whoever else that is standing before the people speaking, they are out of order when there is no one to interpret to edify the church. Therefore as Daniel says “they should keep silent.” Stop making up tongues, because speaking in tongues WON’T get you into Heaven.

It’s sad those serving over the flock in some capacity and the flock who attends church faithfully are living something other than what they profess. They are claiming how much they love the Lord thy God, but they don’t want to lay down their sins at His feet. They don’t want to stop being driven by the sins of their flesh. Sins of our flesh involves many things. It’s anything that causes you to sin (eating too much, lust, fornication, adultery, addicted to gambling, addicted to drugs and alcohol, sexual immorality, and anything that controls you and take you away from God). People don’t want to stop doing the things they are enjoying no matter how wrong. Yet, a lot of these people claim to love Jesus and claim to be walking the walk. It’s nothing but lies. God said “they say they come in my name, they are liars.”

Lies, lies, lies! All of the pretense will one day come to an end, period, point blank! Don’t get caught on the wrong side of the road and please don’t get caught with your work undone. You know who you are and if you know in your heart you’re only playing church, it’s time to stop. The situations in our world are only getting worst. You must decide which side you’re own, because soon you will be in a situation forcing you to take a stand. If you’re not standing for God and His Son Jesus, you’re standing for something else.

I’m not judging, because it is written. God has left instruction and guidance. Stop using you’re not perfect, because as I always say, it’s ONLY an excuse to continue to do what you want to do. Don’t you be one of the people passing by the gates on your way to hell. Be a part of the Kingdom claim your place in Glory. You can’t do that by pretending while you yet live. It’s either you do or you don’t, that’s the only choices you have. Don’t let it be too late!!!!! You must give up the wrong for the right!

Saved versus being reborn

Standard

I feel a need to write about this, because many have it misconstrued. There is a distinct difference between being saved and being reborn. God said you can’t enter the Kingdom of Heaven lest you be born again.

Romans 10:9 Cleary tells us what we need to do in order to be saved. This is the acknowledgment of Jesus dying on the Cross for our sins. Many, many are saved, but this doesn’t mean they’re born again. Being born again means you have put off the old sinful ways and you’ve become a new creature.

Just because people profess Christ and that they’re on the Lord’s side doesn’t mean it’s so. Millions profess Him. They claim that He called them to do this and that. People lie, lie, lie! They want their name on the roll, but they’re absent from the work! It doesn’t work this way!

Millions think that because they say they hold titles in the ministries such as Preacher, Pastor, Reverend, Apostle, Bishop,  Evangelist, Minister, Rabbi, Prophetess, etc, etc. It means NOTHING to God if it’s not from God. Many men and women are giving themselves titles of their own doings or by the doings of other fellowmen, but NOT God the Father or His Son Jesus. This is why you see them accepting and doing things against God. This is why you see the churches have taken God out of church. This is why you see them making the churches more business oriented versus what it was intended to be. They no longer preach soul salvation and holiness. They preach material prosperity and climbing the ladder of success according to man.

You have many gospel singers looking and sounding like people of the world. It clearly shows their hearts are NOT yet convicted and they haven’t completely yielded to the Lord. God said he would rather you to be hot or cold NOT lukewarm. They’re singing songs that sound exactly like songs of the world. The only difference is they put Jesus or God’s name in it here or there. Lies!!!! God said there must be a distinction and separation from the world. People who do this are no more different from those who cry Lord, Lord in the presence of man, but live like hypocrites. God is going to start revealing them more and more.

People that are a part of the worldly ways go along with anything and anyone, because they don’t have God in their lives. They’re like petals in the wind flying all over the place; having no roots. They’re going along with what man says and NOT God the Father and His Son Jesus. It’s clear this is the case, because they have no solid foundation (no roots). They’re brainwashed by their church leaders and others of the world. They don’t know the WORD for themselves!

I got saved at the age of 12, but I didn’t become reborn until my forties. I did what I wanted to do, when I wanted to, to whom I wanted to. My mind and heart was NOT on God the Father and His Son Jesus. I didn’t have a prayer life or a relationship with them, but I was still saved. He don’t take being saved away, but being saved isn’t going to get you into the kingdom. Once I began to acknowledge Him I repented my sins and rededicated my life to Him; my heart became convicted. I started being conscious of what I did, what I said, how I dressed, how I thought, felt, acted, presented myself, etc. I started going to Him  in prayer on everything. I developed a daily prayer life and walk with Him. I was totally submitted and committed. I gave up the ways of the world. I became a new creature indeed! I understand it wasn’t about me. I also became a servant to others.

I’ve gone through the storms many times, I’ve seen things most will never see or couldn’t handle if they saw them. I’ve endured much, but through it all I stood and yet stand. When I was in my mess, I didn’t realize it was God the Father and His Son Jesus who wrapped me up and kept me under His grace and mercy. I could have been dead and gone a few times (once by electrocution and other my being shot). He’s kept me from wrecks so many times as I traveled to and fro. I can talk about it all day. I know it was my Angels covering me. When I had no clue He was present, He was right there.

I pray that people understand that just because they’re saved doesn’t mean they’re reborn. You can’t make it into the Kingdom lest you’re reborn. Reborn is putting off your old ways. Not just for a little while, but for good. You can’t desire the ways of the world, you can’t want to turn back. God becomes your focus. You begin to guard your ways (thinking, feeling, acting).

I PRAY that those of you who haven’t truly given your lives to Him, that you STOP playing before it’s too late! One day it will be too late! People can profess Him all day, but if they’re not living what they profess they are DEAD in Christ. They are the true walking dead!
