They Walk Amongst Us

Matthew 8:28-32
When He came to the other side into the country of the Gadarenes, two men who were demon-possessed met Him as they were coming out of the tombs. They were so extremely violent that no one could pass by that way. And they cried out, saying, “What business do we have with each other, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?” Now there was a herd of many swine feeding at a distance from them.The demons began to entreat Him, saying, “If You are going to cast us out, send us into the herd of swine.” And He said to them, “Go!” And they came out and went into the swine, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and perished in the waters. 
The lesson in this story is evil knows evil. When we come up against it we have to know that it is stronger then us we have to call on the Lord. We have to go through Jesus Christ. And let them both fight this raging battle.

Trusting In Your Instincts

God gave us all an instinctual ability to sense when there is danger. When something just isn't right you feel it . Especially if you are in tune with God.

When It All Goes Down

The Revelation according to John, allowed the author to tell of the end of times as we know it.
We are in end times. Are we spiritually prepared ?

To Be Thankful

God gives us spiritual worthiness. Of course we have to be willing and able to except his grace and mercy. Descern the inept, ungrateful, fence walkers. Know when a wolf in sheep's clothing is in your presence. But once you understand what you're dealing with you can move on and be grateful for your life. And who may be in it.

Oppression And The Bible

When you study just the New Testament you see the action plan put in place to spread the word of God no matter the ridicule. No matter the threat to life, the " Good News" was still spread through hostile territory's.  In the old testemant you find many a martyre. Those who came from a suppressed oppressed life.  Their stories managed to survived. God  knew man would destroy himself and man still to this day does the very same.
2 Chronicles 7: 13-15
If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, 14and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.15"Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.…

To Be Grateful And Prayerful Is Not A Sign Of Weakness

With seemingly a war of the classes raging. If not full fledged war, it is definitely an attack on the common people by an aristocratic, evil in nature greedy few. When Jesus walked this earth it seemed very similar. Rich for the rich. Paganism and immoral behavior. The rich and sanctified were only excepted in the "religion " of the day. It all changed when the common man had a teacher who taught that all men are accepted before God. That he (Jesus) would be the truth and the way for all men to enter heaven. 
Matthew 19:26
Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

Buffoonery , Showmen, Charlatans

* Disclaimer: not all men and women of the pulpit fit in these categories.
We really have to ask God for decernment . There are so many people who are misinformed. When you look back at the days of old, the biblical accounts " the church" did not exist . There were Jewish temples. There were pagan rituals. There were gathering places where many spreaders of the word spoke of their knowledge of God. But there wasn't a building that one person stood before people passing plates around to collect anything. As a matter of fact the one man who had audiences like that, passed baskets around to feed people. The antics that current churches connect with are far from the original gathering places. Gods grace and mercy are not to be bought. Through Jesus we are saved.

2 Peter 1:3His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue.

Spreading The a Good News

Many walking this earth today can attest to a personal relationship with God. Not a fanfare holy roller exhibition. But a one on one honest relationship. If you know Jesus, you know God. Simple as that.

The Battle Is Not Ours

There are times when we have to call on God and his angels to go up against the wiles of satan. We cannot fight all of these spiritual battles being just us. Having faith in God gets us through such difficult times.

The Battle Is Raging

Just looking  at and feeling the opposition, can send you spiraling. You want to react to the confusion, usually by the first emotion that hits you. Here's the thing to remember: firstly God does not author confusion . The devil and his playmates do. Secondly, after getting you all riled up the devil leaves you standing there alone and looking stupid. God would never do that. The key in recognizing this most difficult guise. Do not react to the smoke screen no matter how bad it looks. And do not convict yourself. God has bigger and better things in store. Stay in faith and denounce satan. " get thee be hind me, Jesus is my Lord and savior."

Stepping Up

If you watch and listen long enough the realness of people come out. Be it one who is filled with kindness and genuine unconditional love. Or one that is filled with themselves and nothing else seems to matter but them. The world seems to have many who fit both categories. The thing to remember is God excepts us . That through suffering and dying on the cross, Jesus stood up and took on all of mankinds sin. As long as one realizes that Sacrafice he or she will be accepted into heaven.

Weathering The Storms

We go through life facing many a battle. Usually able to get through it by calling on , and trusting in God.

Cause And Effect

Many people live their lives not owning up to their responsibility as far as giving unconditionally. Not realizing that doing so God sees all. People need to note God is an all time GOD

Thrones, Powers, Hostile Spiritual Beings

This world is so full of evil and misguided people in high places. Ready to do all they can to sell their souls and destroy any and everything in their evil path. Some of the most detrimental are the turncoats in the pulpit. Not all have the lable of deceiver but many many do. If you recall in the Bible, Jesus went to the temple and turned over the tables filled with silver and gold. Saying in effect not in Gods house.

How Is Your House Built?

It is interesting watching the world and the wordly who live in it. When we walk in the light like true Gods children do, it is very easy to see the despair of the ones who don't .

Isaiah 30:21

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

Who's Real And Who's Not?

If you have read one of the oldest paged  documents written ( The Bible), you will find many a story depicting characters who questioned, belief systems. Lived through unbearable circumstances. Fought enemies bigger and stronger then themselves. Many lives transformed to believing and trusting in the unseen. Until one came to live amongst them. Ate and drank like them. Was tempted just like them. Died a horrible death just like them.  Did it come to life God is real. Period.

Treat Me As You Would Have Me Treat You

Ever felt let down? Disappointed ? The normal answer and reaction is yes, most have experienced these things. Most stress and strain over these things. No! Those that walk in the world, who's souls seem lost, go through a gamet of things. The difference in walking in the light and knowing Jesus , is forgiveness. God has done so since forever. We need to practice forgiving as well.

My House Will Serve The Lord

Make no mistake man has choice built into his DNA. When it comes to spirituality many go in different directions. And that is ok, because it is their choice. My God is for me. And those who chose God and accept Jesus Christ as their savior should have a personal relationship. Meaning what God has for you is strictly for you. No one else can walk in your footsteps.

It Is Not What It appears To Be

Have you ever been down to your last ?  Not knowing where the next is to come? It happens to many quite often. It's when you have unwavering faith that no matter what is before you, God has got you.

The Ultimate Sacrafice

How does one earn their rightful place in life? Key word "earn". There are so many who have not earned anything but feel entitled. It can be as simple as giving up self for the sake of others who are not as strong as you. That is what Jesus did. He taught. He healed. He sacraficed his life for the sake of mankind. So yes, life and it's privalidge should be earned.

Who Else But Evil Would Make Being Evil Cool

We truly do have to pay attention to what we are fed. That cat makes cartoon caricatures like minions innocent and"cute". Despicable behavior okay.  So we have to be careful. We are living in a dangerous time.  We have to watch what our children view. We have to pay attention to what is shown to us. Because all around us is deception. And these times we need God more than ever.

Who Is Truly In Control?

Man over the centuries have staked claim to being in control of his destiny. Which begs the question: Why then have so many seemingly brilliant civilizations disappeared? You would think mankind through the years of their existence would want to live on right? The Bible tells of many " natural" disasters. Of which were catastrophic. Very few survived. God gives us clues to spiritual survival. This in of itself has been man's recourse. Living life lovingly. Knowing that having Faith is the key.

That Eternal Flame

There is a metaphor that says the proof is in the pudding. Is it? Must there be a question each and everytime there's some one who suffers? " Where is your God now?" " Why is he allowing his people to go through so much?" God never said that there wouldn't be hard times. He said that through believing, and trusting in Jesus Christ you will be saved.

Walking With Unwavering Faith

How many times have you been left with a situation that seemed impossible to get through? If you are like most people many occasion has arose. The thing to remember is having a personal relationship with the most high, gives you confidence that you can get through this. That this will not break you. God is good all of the time.

We Were Lost But Now We Are Found

It is through the excepting of  Jesus Christ that our lives can be blessed. Forgiven. Devoid of shame and guilt. We can know that in our hearts God loves us. And he would never forsake or leave us.

The Fire Is Kindled Within

Expressing your feelings for God in your own way is totally exceptable. As long as you are genuine.

Giving Thanks Unto The Lord

We as humans want to think that we are in control of our destinies. What we have control over is how we interact with life. What we give out is what usually comes back to us. Yes that we have control over. How people treat others is not in our control. We can stop the mis handling of children, the sick and the elderly. But people in general make their own beds. God sees all the evil and the ugly. Through faith and through Jesus we can expect to recieve our blessings.

The Lions Den, The Oven, The Wilderness

There is something to be said about challenges, faith, and mercy.
When Daniel refused to give up his belief in God. The hierarchy put him in a hole with ravaging lions, in hopes they would eat him alive. When Shadrach, Meshach, Abendnego refused to give up God they were thrown in a potters oven. When Jesus sat on a cliff in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights fasting and praying. The devil tempted him with everything to give up God. All of these instances were extreme. God had his hands on each and everyone who experienced such. These people never gave up on God. They went through "hell" and back still having faith to the umpteenth power. That is the same kind of faith we must exhibit. 
Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
