Don't Give Up

Just when we think all has gone bad, God comes through. We must remain steadfast in our faith.

Still You Question

Eternal skepticism. Atheist. Non believers. Come a dime a dozen. It's the "Christian " that walks the fence. The one that holds God accountable for all their issues. Never realizing that through every experience God is with you. That it is not about what's done at the present moment. It's instead about Faith. If you believe whole heartily in God, it would be obvious that through Jesus we are saved. Our part is to trust, learn, be of a giving mind body and soul. 
John 16:33
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

Need We Ask ?

Romans 10:17

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.


Faith this strong. Faith this unwavering. Faith like this , the kind that believes in God. The kind that does not question life's situations, because you have faith in God that he has your back. Is the ultimate kind faith to have.

Walking The Line

Too many play with Gods word. Twisting and turning Gods intention to fit and form their own selfish curriculim. It is the full unadulterated insult to God and all that he stands for.  Blasphemy indeed! The enemy works through the wolf in sheep's clothing. Expecting to recruit more into his hell bent army. 
Matthew 7:17
 "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

Fruit

When planting seed as long as that  seed recieves water and sunlight it will grow..  In many cases in natures realm in order for that plant to bear fruit it (the plant) has to be pollinated . In the God fearing spiritual world the same concept entails . You can plant the seed but it takes a relationship with God and that relationship  to be pollinated".  By going through Gods son Jesus Christ many  a fruit shall be beared.

Why Compromise?

When it comes to God there is no compromise on our behalf. You either trust and believe or you don't. A long time ago,mankind had a true one on one with God. It was like dial his number and he(God ) would litarally answer the phone. Until mankind stopped dialing the number. God would be waiting right there to answer and no one called. They were busy partying, worshiping idols. And caring less that God  had supplied their needs. They acted like supreme spoiled brats. God warned them many many times. He finally had to pull out the last measure ; Jesus.

Do You See The Difference?

Malachi  3:18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.
Because the spiritual world is unseen, many deem it to be a figment of ones imagination. Non-existent. Spirituality dates back as far as history has been written. There are hieroglyphs with pagan gods being worshiped. Cave dwellings with art older then one can imagine depicting the spiritual beliefs of the people who created it. Then there is the Bible, a copulation of the Greatest Stories ever told.  So spirituality has been with humankind forever. It is up to us to chose the righteous path. The path in which God is the director. Jesus Christ is the way and the light. That is the distinct difference. We (christians) have a living God. Who remains faithful and true to those who ask him to be part of their lives.

Expect The Unexpected

When it comes to God and his blessing it is very simple. Believe and trust in God and all things are possible. Know on the other hand that the enemy is just as busy. Know that without Jesus and God in our lives things can be as equal in blessings and good as they are evil and wicked. It truly depends on what and whom you believe in.

Supply And Demand

As the world continues to follow many things. Most of which has a derivative in the form of money, greed, power, vanity, gluttony and sheer evil. It is a relief to know that there are pockets of God fearing faith based people. Who are very familiar with the wiles of the day. Who are walking amongst the unsaved with armor so thick the enemy has to constantly maneuver around over and under using loved ones to pierce that armor always. The spiritual war is as constant as the sun rising. However one who walks with God and knows Jesus Christ as his or her savior has a never ending supply which is in total demand and such a comfort, any pain thrown by the devil subsides quickly. God expects our faith to be as strong as his love for us. Yes our supply and demand for ever increasing faith is a constant. Gods love for us is and will be supplied upon demand. All we have to do is ask.

Having Now Faith

Not having faith in a big way is a big problem. It is not up to us when God blesses us. After all you need to know Gods time is Gods time not ours. We do not call the shots.

acceptance

Encouragement , lifting spirit, passing on joy. Are jewels that can be treasured when passed on.  It is when one is in acceptance of a negative life. One that all hope seems lost. Living in the mire. Never asking or wanting to be free of that tremendous burden. That yoke. That heaviness will kill you. When hope is not lost. When faith takes root, all things are possible. God is the creator. Jesus and the acceptance of who he is means the whole world to a man or woman going through the ups and downs in life. 

Psalm 18:2
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold

The Enabler

How many times do we run to the rescue of some one that we think we are helping, but we are actually harming them unbeknownst to us? Harming by not letting them see for themselves how or what to do for themselves. It is almost as though we feel guilty that it is our fault something got missed along the way. That because we may have mis stepped this person may need us to help make all those mis steps up to them. Let's imagine God in an enabling position, which he was through out the Bible. He kept trying where the people were concerned, providing them with their every need. They (the people) soon became disrespectful. Non trustworthy. Non-caring of one another. Terrible people. God punished this behavior on more then one occasion as well. He shook his head and thought of a solution. That solution was his son Jesus . If the people were able to see. To touch. To hear a real live breathing man, God  figured that his enabling would subside.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Are Our Lives Supposed To Be Lived On Solid Ground?

So many question Gods intentions for us. The doubters are always asking questions. Or making such comments: " Well if there was a God, why is there so much pain and suffering?"

Romans 5:3-5

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Blessed Is The Day

We have so many options and choices in these days and times as opposed to prior generations. Why does it seem that so many are unhappy? So many wreaking havoc? So many with little faith? God knew of mankinds down falls. They were prevalent then and still prevalent now. Back in the day God spoke directly to the people. Giving them any and everything possible to make them happy. They still failed, miserably. We do the same in today's world. The difference being,  and boiling down to having a relationship with Jesus. It is through him that we are saved.

Let Not Mercy And Truth Forsake You

The way we live should be a direct reflection of our hearts , and souls. It's just as easy as that. 

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Behold The Day

The Bible explains in chapter after chapter God's love for his people. It (the Bible) explains the rath of God as well. Thank God for Jesus. If you accept him as your lord and savior, that wrath, those fiery darts, the wiles of the evil one, will not touch you. Faith, belief, humbleness, and repentance as well as
forgiveness, are the qualities one must try very hard to keep. They are the essentials in keeping the very things mentioned above at bay. God sees all. Especially your heart. It is up to you to exercise that soul to keep all that He created in a perfect state.

Is God Good All Of The Time?

That questions begs the answer ye of little faith . Jesus had to constantly let unbelievers know who he was and what and who he represented. Those who knew had no doubt. Yet those who knew did at times doubt. Jesus corrected them  always.



Mark 8:26
And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

Let Your Request Be Made Known To God

Philipians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

This is easier said then not. When many pray to God it is out of need and or desperation. Prayer nor talking to God has to be a need type thing. A casual thank you Lord works. A word to renounce a sin admitting that you were wrong and that you are sorry is okay. Knowing that you will try your best to live up to Gods word is fine. There are plenty a promise that God has made mankind. It is up to us to do our best to live up to  his expectations. The saving grace is That through Jesus all things are possible. God knows us.

The Driving Force Behind It All Is ?

God is my driving force. Many can not or will not say such a thing. Why? Because they have little to no faith. Their world revolves around things seen. Where as mine revolves around the unseen but based heavily in faith. I believe in God. I believe with all my heart that a man named Jesus tried his very best to teach and live as God expects us to live. He died knowing that his death would be a tremendous sacrafice for mankind. 
John 6:47
Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.

Are We Sheep Being Led To Oblivion?

It is so very hard to watch the disillusioned in today's world. The ones that wonder aimlessly through life living worldly and believing in worldly  things. The ones that reach their tipping point. The ones who are soulless. Not having any part of God in their lives. They are anti this and anti that. God says this. 
Revelation 22:13
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
Isaiah 44:6
"This is what the LORD says-- Israel's King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.
God knows of the unbelievers. It is up to the faithful to know what is expected of he or she. Keeping in mind that Jesus gave his life for mankind. And that it is through him that we are saved.

Why Don't They Have Last Names?

Its funny how a skeptic's question can take you on a quest to find an answer. "Why don't the people in the bible have last names ?" Well the one thing one must think about is region, language developement. And the time now as opposed to then. In the times of early tribe living, men and women were identified by their family names or their occupations or the region from where they came . There were very few exceptions. Today our surnames basically follow the same tradition, with the exception of slaves. Most surnames of black people in the United States took on that of their owner. Not all , but most. So the next time someone ask that curious question, "why don't people in the bible have last names ?" Tell them to google it. 
Revelation 24-29
“‘I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first. But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality.Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her works, and I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works. But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call the deep things of Satan, to you I say, I do not lay on you any other burden. Only hold fast what you have until I come. The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’

Joy Comes In The Morning

We must understand the human psyche. The physical must be nourished and fed to maintain life. The mind must be fed with knowledge to keep the physical together. The heart and soul must be fed to keep the mind healthy, which in turn keeps the body healthy. When one or the other is lacking disaster takes over.

In Times Like These

As each day unfolds in our lives, we must find peace, a little joy, wisdom and understanding. With God as our anchor, we can achieve all mentioned above with ease.

This Bond Is Unbreakable

The bond between God and you should be unbendable, unwavering and the strongest bond you could have. God is the only one that can bring you back from the abyss. It is easy to get sucked into this world.  It is easy to become part of the failing fabric mankind has woven for himself. One must remember what is real and know that all that is seen isn't necessarily so. There is spiritual warfare so embedded only those of us who trust and believe in almighty God understand. Faith Faith Faith.

2 Corinthians 11:14

And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

I imagine Myself In Gods Eyes

Seriously , what would God think of me? Of you? Of the world? Have I done and am I doing the right thing or things in Gods eyes? The answer lies deep within. Is your heart a giving heart? Do you put your trust and faith in God? Do you ask for forgiveness and repent of your sins? Finally do you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior ? Yes to these questions make you the apple of Gods eye.

Can I Pray For You?

To the believers: prayer, humbleness in prayer, praying for, and with someone matters. God is receptive of them (prayers) and you for doing so. Then there is the concern for prayer said for, said to, and said with the non believer.

1 Timothy 2:1-6

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time., for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.

Acts 14:22

strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.

To Whom Do Our Loyalties Lie?

As each day passes in our lives, we take those natural pauses, to examine our loyalties. And with whom do those loyalties belong. We have our families, and friends that wind up in that equation. Where does God lie?

Psalm 34:4

sought the Lord, and he answered me
    and delivered me from all my fears.
