Is the World Really Worth Your Soul

Standard

I want you to really think about it. Many people profess Christ in their lives yet they are living any kind of way. This is the work of a double minded person. People get mad at the truth, but it’s still the truth. When I was in the world I honestly never thought about daily prayer or a true relationship with Jesus. I didn’t think about there being no secrets. I did what I wanted to do when I wanted to. I never ever thought about the consequences of my actions. I was so blind by my feelings and emotions. I was lost in myself and the ways of the world. But God, oh but God!

I was raised in the church and gave my life to Christ when I was 12, but I didn’t understand how to go from milk to meat. I didn’t know what it all meant. I got saved and went on to do whatever I chose. Thank God for keeping me through it all. As I’ve mentioned before I weep when I think about how good He has been to me and how He kept me even when I didn’t/don’t deserve it. I remember several times I could have lost my life in accidents (in my home and on the road), but God!

When I made a vow and commitment to Christ, I promise you it was easy for me to give up everything else. As I continued on my journey I made it known to everyone around me Jesus is first in my life ( before parents, children, family, and friends). I’ve lost friends and loved ones along the way, because they can’t deal with the Jesus in me. See this is how it is supposed to be. When you give it up, you give it up!

Fortunate for me I made my mind up 100% and I knew that I knew I didn’t want any parts of the ways of the world. I laid down my mess and I never went back to it. So, if I can do it so can you. I know it’s absolutely possible. I’m no better than anyone, He doesn’t love me more than anyone else. I made the choice to give up the ways of the world and follow Him. People don’t want to give up things because they aren’t ready, and then they make excuses. When you’re ready, you become a soul who’s sold out! Walking for the Lord isn’t difficult. Yes you’re still tried and you will go through, but that is life! If you want it you will do it and no temptation will pull you away from it.

A lot of things people endure are brought on my self. Jesus died on the cross for our sins, He took everything to the cross for us. It is people who individually choose to pick up those things He took up for us! He made it possible for us to live Holy lives, but people still choose NOT to. People want to make every excuse NOT to do the right thing. They want to add to and take away from the Word to appease self! They want things now and they want them their way.

It is our choice to serve Him and to live for Him. If we REALLY love Him we will live for Him. It won’t be a struggle to decide to do so or not; we will do it! People who TRULY choose Jesus don’t keep going back to the ways of the world. They don’t try to do things in secret, because they know in Jesus there are NO secrets; for He knows and sees all things!

Regardless of how cruel, mean, nasty, cold, and evil people in this world has become; people still choose it over Jesus. They love the world more. They mock Jesus, they fake the Holy Spirit, and they blaspheme against the Lord. They do it because they love the world more.

Sad part is many want to pretend He’s first in their lives. They speak it and act the part in front of those they want to act it in front of, but they don’t live it. Living it is everything and if you’re not doing so, then you’re not for Jesus. If you’re not for Him you’re against Him. You can’t be for Him sometimes, it must be a twenty four-seven, three hundred and sixty five a year thing! It’s a daily relationship, daily praise, and daily worship!

Not one single person on earth can serve two Masters! You can think you can, but you can’t! If a person isn’t ready, they aren’t ready, but don’t think for a second you are able to serve Jesus and do the devil’s work. It won’t work, it don’t work! So again “why are you holding on to the world?” It has nothing to offer you, but hell if you don’t change your ways. Nothing you achieve or gain will matter when you leave this world, for you can’t take anything with you!

People are working faithfully and diligently to gain everything they can in this world. Some live “high on the hog.” Some think because of what they have they are better. Some live to be praised and worshipped. None of what a person has matters. People must think about their spiritual bodies and become less worried about the natural aspects of this world if they want to see the King. I’m so glad I realize nothing is more important than my spiritual walk, my faith, my love, and my commitment to Jesus the Son and God the Father.

I don’t care what anyone believes, I know I love Jesus and I know Jesus loves me. Just because I belong to Him doesn’t mean things are always easy for me, but I know I am not alone, He’s with me every step of the way through whatever!

As the old hymn says “get right church,” because someday we have to go home. That home will either be Heaven or hell. It’s always been your choice as to what you choose. Even if you feel you don’t want to choose, by not choosing your STILL choosing. Remember anything against Jesus the Son is against the Father. You can’t make it to God without going through Jesus the Son. It’s up to you what you choose. My prayer is you make up your mind before it’s to late.

Choosing Man’s Way Over God’s Way

Standard

Many people of the world today have chosen man’s way over thus sayeth the Lord. Everything God says is the right way, man is saying it’s the wrong way. Everything God says is the wrong way, man is saying it’s the right way. What’s even sadder is people don’t fear or respect God. They are boldly doing what they want to do! This world has adopted the “Burger King” concept of “have it your way.” There will be repercussions and consequences for all things against the Son and the Father!

Jesus died for our sins, so we don’t have to die for them. God could have easily brought him down from the cross. He stayed there for you, you, you, and I. Yet, this world is right back in the same predicament of the Bible days. People are doing whatever, whenever, and wherever. They have no shame about anything they do or say! To put icing on the cake, many of these people profess Christ as their Lord and Savior! Lies, lies, lies and people who do this know they are telling lies, lies, lies! I’m not trying to spiritually shame anyone, I’m trying to help you realize you need to get it right before it’s too late!

Time is moving right along, it waits for no man. However the most beautiful thing is even though time is moving quickly, everyday we get to see is a day given for us to change our ways and come to the Lord. It is time given to stop mocking God and playing church. People mock God and play church to please man. They go to church out of tradition, but also out of dedication to man, yet they have no commitment or dedication to Jesus. No one can know the Father if they have no relationship with the Son!

Many people don’t want to give up this world; they think they’ll miss something if they do. They are very correct, they will miss something detrimental to them, which is Heaven trying to live for this world! Many people have and are falling away, because they have no roots. Many people want to straddle a fence that doesn’t exist.

I don’t care who YOU think you are or what pedal stool you’ve been put on. All of our knees will someday bow. No one is above the Master! We will all give an account of what we’ve done against God. There are only 2 roads to take; the right one or the wrong one. Many willfully choose the wrong road, because they don’t want to give up the wrong for the right. They don’t want to let go of things of this world.

You can’t take with you your old ways on a new journey with the Lord, you have to put them down. You must let them completely go and not turn back to pick them up. If a person truly wants to serve God they can and they will give up this world. To love Him, you must live for Him, period! Those who don’t want to give up their old ways are the first ones to say you’re judging them. They are the first ones who will say no one is perfect. These are old, old, excuses to stay where you are in the world.

I will not tell you a lie, not one time have I desired to go back to my old ways. When I came up out of my mess, I was thankful how God kept me safe from all dangers seen and unseen, natural and supernatural. I went through some stuff, but He kept me. It could have been me many times, but yet He kept me. I wouldn’t turn back for nothing or no one! God has been too good to me! When I was in the world I thought I was having fun, I did what I wanted to do. However, when I developed my relationship with Jesus, I realized all the things I had done against Him. It made me weep, I still weep when I think about where He brought me from! I can’t turn back, nothing is back there for me. I know for a fact 100% people can live Holy lives if they choose.

The devil has his agenda and has had it from the start. He makes things appealing to the eyes, he tickles the ears, he gives people this and that and sadly some think what the devil gave them is from the Lord, and he makes things glitter to look like gold when it isn’t. He is doing his job of lying and deceiving people. He pulls all types of arsenals out of his bag of tricks to make people think the world is a better option. Nothing a person gains in this world has value in Heaven or hell. We will take nothing with us when we leave this world. How we chose to live determines our eternal home. Yet, people are still choosing this world as if they will be here forever. No, we all will someday depart this world! People must get ready for this transition. We all have a chance right now to get it right while the blood is running warm through our veins.

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!

 

If You Loved Jesus As Much As Everything Else

Standard

We’ve all been guilty. I have mentioned it in previous post I am a gospel singer/songwriter and I love it beyond words. I grew up singing from the age of 11, I’ve been around top notch national artist. I’ve enjoyed singing on the same stages with them all over the place. God knows my passion for it, but my passion for Him exceedingly and abundantly outweighs my passion for it.

I’ve learned in my life particularly in the past going on 9 years to lean and depend completely on Jesus. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t worship or idolize nothing or no one. I know I am “plain Jane” to most. I have no favorite anything. There are things I like, but the line between enjoying those things and worshipping those things is great. I worship nothing or no one, other than the Father. He’s my everything and my all and all. I am rooted and grounded in my faith. I live what I teach and preach. I don’t waver with the way of the world.

Too many people profess Him with their lips yet their hearts are far from Him (straight from the Word). It is so true! These same people profess to live for Him (lies). I’m not trying to judge, I’m only telling the truth.

If a person really love God, then He would be first in their life and it will be reflected in how they live. Instead of getting right and for real with Jesus many are trying to hide what they are really doing. They think what they are doing is hidden or is a secret. Well nothing is a secret to the Father. He knows and sees all we do. He said all things done in the dark will come to the light. It’s no lie people!

If people loved Jesus and our Father God the way they love everything else oh what a beautiful world this would be. People are too busy trying to showboat and pretend until they don’t understand they are on the road to hell.

People are so focused on worshipping other people who by the way aren’t exempt from the same problems in life as you, (love, pain, suffering, all kinds of other troubles) and they aren’t exempt from dying. Yet many of the same people claiming to love Jesus are idolizing people and many other things.

People spend millions on sports teams, they are die hard fans. Yet, they don’t show near the passion for Jesus. They pick Him up and put Him down when it’s convenient for them.

People will go to the ends of the earth to seek love, when most times what they receive; has NOTHING to do with love.

God is being mocked on every hand. In today’s society it seems the norm to mock God, but let me tell you He’s a God that shall not be mocked. People who are doing it will be greatly rewarded. Yes rewarded, because they will received something in return for the wrong they’re doing.

As I’ve always said; this world has nothing to offer but death; that’s it! People who are ONLY claiming Jesus don’t want to let go of this world. They still want to do what they do, act how they act, talk how they want, etc; when none of it is a representation of Jesus. A bunch of “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” However, no matter the disguise; you can’t fool Jesus! You can’t fool God; you’re only fooling yourself. Fooling yourselves into believing #1 that you’re smart enough to fool God and #2 that the world has something better to offer you then God and His Son Jesus.

God has no respectable person and neither does the devil. God wishes for none of us to perish, while the devil is trying to kill us all. God’s love for us is unconditional, but the devil knows nothing about love (he’s here to kill, steal, and destroy). God cleans you up from the inside out, but the devil only polishes the outside making a person appear to be something he or she is not. Sill people would rather profess Jesus but live for the devil. They are choosing to “gain the whole world and lose their souls” because if you’re not truly for Him (all the way), then you’re against Him.

Loving Jesus completely is to put Him first and not put anything or anyone before Him. If people would put in the effort and time to love Jesus and want to be a part of Him like they do the world and all of its ways what a wonderful world it would be.

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.

Trying to Put God on the Fence You’re Straddling

Standard

Yes you read it correctly. I am so sad how people want to place God on the fence they’re straddling. Read very carefully, God will never be on the fence. You may be on the fence, but He will never be on the fence, so stop trying to put Him there.

The only reason people do this, is because they want to straddle the fence and dangle their legs on the both sides. They want to do good to please man and do good to please the world.  We may have good and bad in our environments, but if you’re on God’s side then you know the right choices to make. If you aren’t ready, then clearly you will straddle the fence, but stop trying to place God on that fence with you. He clearly says in the Word; He’d rather you be cold or hot, NOT lukewarm. That means either you choose his way or your way (anything against Him is the devil’s way). There are no in between. You can’t do both, you will love one more and that is who you will serve. Many of you reading this may not like the words, but I didn’t say them nor did I write them first. It is written in the Word (Bible).

People keep trying to compromise when it comes to the Word of God and serving Him and His Son Jesus. The ONLY comprising going on when it comes to God is whether you choose to serve him or not. That’s it! If your choice is Jesus Christ as your Savior, there is NO compromise, but it’s exactly what people are trying to do. If you’re not for Him, you’re against Him; point blank! End of the story!

I’ve been hearing people who are claiming to be on His side, debate on whether or not something should be acceptable that is clearly against God. This is a clear and irrefutable sign that you’re not where you claim to be when it comes to being on His side. There are no sometimes or in between about it; either you hate the way of the world or you don’t. If you love the ways of this world, then you don’t love God the way you claim.

I know somebody is probably mad right about now, but I will not sugarcoat the truth to please no man none of the time. I stand on God’s Word. There was a time in life when I too straddled the fence. I did what I wanted when I wanted, but it was because I was walking sideways and talking out the side of my neck. However, now that I know better, I certainly do better. I chose the side I wanted to be on. I planted my feet and I am here to stay. No man, woman, boy, or girl can come along and tell me anything that I know is contradicting to his Word and make me wonder if it’s okay, etc. No, not at all!

The Word says, “many are called, but few are chosen.” He gives the opportunity to everyone of His children, He has no respectable person. He doesn’t wish for any of us to perish. However, just because the lifeline has been given doesn’t mean everyone will grab hold.

As a gospel singer I am seeing more and more how secular and non-secular are intertwining. NO, that’s not God’s way at all? He said we must separate ourselves. They want to claim they’re trying to reach a certain genre of people; if that is what soothes you then tell that lie, but it’s not of God. Music is very persuasive and seducing, the devil knows just how to use it against God. A true Saint wouldn’t want to intertwine the two. How can you join with someone who doesn’t believe to make others believe?  What persuasion will that person have in bringing people to Christ when they themselves don’t know Him or serve Him? It makes no sense! Those who do aren’t on God and His Son Jesus’s side, they’re looking at spreading their music further and it’s about personal gain. Too many artist do this in today’s world.  God may have sat in the midst of thieves, etc, etc, but not once did He do what they did to get anything across to them. Not once did He waver to the left or right to prove a point! He is the same God; today, yesterday, and forevermore. It’s people who are wavering not God! People are trying to put Him up on the fence with them and it just won’t work!

There are many people who claim to be called by God to do this or that. The Word says “He qualifies whom He elect.” When you examine the walk of people it clearly shows they’re not who or what they claim to be. A new creature is a new creature indeed. There will be no wondering, no scratching of the head. Everything about them changes. They won’t try to do what they once did nor will they want too. This is the point I’m trying to get across. When you are truly on the side of Jesus Christ and Our Father God, you will not want to entertain your old ways and certainly not the ways of this world. You will see things completely in a new way and nothing about you will be the same.

Own up to who you are and what you are when it comes to serving God. You’re NOT fooling Him! Many want the prestige of dealing with the form and fashion of it all, but don’t want the true benefits of eternal life, because they aren’t ready to give up this world. They want to stay on their fences. One day you won’t get to make the choice.  As I’ve said before, I pray people stop playing church, because God isn’t playing with you. He’s giving people the opportunity to get it right, but one day your opportunity will no longer exist and if you didn’t choose the right side when you die you are dead. You won’t get the opportunity to live again, because while you lived you chose to gain the whole world only to lose your soul.

I don’t know how else to write this post other than to the point! Time out for trying to please man and be apart of man’s click; because it’s all the agenda of the devil.

 

Only A Changed Heart Can Conquer Hate

Standard

I know and understand love conquers hate, but before a person can love; their heart must first be changed. Look around at the world we live in today, there is so much hatred. People seemingly hate for no reason, but there is always underlying reasons as to why. Hatred is a learned behavior. It’s learned through parenting, family, friends, other people, environments, and surroundings; and it starts early in a person’s life.

Some people are so bitter; you can see it in the way they speak and act. They are mean, cruel, and unhappy people. I’ve dealt many people who are in their places of business but they are mean and have no customer etiquette. They are plain rude. This anger comes from the inside; the true essence of who we are. It comes from years of learned behavior. People get used to acting a certain way; they don’t even realize how they’re acting. That doesn’t make it right!!

Nowadays killing another human being means nothing to some people. These types of people have deep rooted issues they’ve not faced. They’ve carried these issues around for years and it has made them into very sad and angry people. They hate themselves and they’re mad at the world. Through the media we’ve seen many have committed murder. People have taken the lives of many they don’t even know out of anger and rage build up over the years.

No person on the face of this earth is exempt from troubles in life. We will go in and out of our valleys, up and down our hills and mountains, but life goes on. How we deal with those ups and downs is indicative of how we will weather those storms. Problem is many don’t even try; they go through those periods of life complaining, but never trying to change to become better people. They continue to do the same things. They hold in anger not realizing it’s affecting the very essence of who they are. Anger turns into hate and hate into violence in some form or another IF it’s not dealt with.

Over the years anger has built up in these angry people and as mentioned earlier, this anger has turned into hate. It sabotaged their lives and it affects them mentally, physically, and spiritually. It makes some people into the walking dead. They are alive, but they are dead inside. They have no peace, joy, or happiness. A lot of these people project this hatred onto others and oftentimes the outcome is deadly. Things never have to get this way if people would stop downplaying what’s ailing them. If they would face things and deal with them, and stop holding it all inside. Bottom line is nothing but a changed heart will conquer their hate.

No one can receive love if their heart isn’t changed to embrace it. Unfortunately many were never shown or taught what love is, but this doesn’t mean a person can’t learn if they choose to. I am praying for peace of minds all over the world. Showing love is something people seem to have a hard time doing these days. It seems that families are against one another and people hate folks they don’t even know. It’s all very sad and disturbing. So please join me in praying for peace across our world.
