What Happens When We (For Real) Return to God

desperate man, return to God

The first thing that happens when you decide to give your life to Jesus is separation. If you are living with someone who is unsaved, you will notice tribulation. This tribulation will be the devils response to your decision. Do not engage in hate toward your neighbor, the devil is just bothering them to bother you. If this is a roommate situation, you will probably need your own place, if they refuse to get on board.

If you are married the admonition is to remain in such a situation, but you cannot hold your spouse if they decide to leave you. Let them go.

Keep in mind these things will naturally happen as you change from living unholy to living holy. Those living in sin will not want to be around you. Also, keep in mind, you are not preaching to people at this time about the sin in their life.

You are working on you and your relationship with Jesus. They will leave you, not because of your words, but because of your chaste lifestyle coupled with the fear of the Lord.

As you read the Bible and become obedient to all of it. You will start receiving convictions about things you never knew irritated God. He will start convicting you about many things. Conversations with people. God is so awesome he will even help you find a lost ID card. You will receive supernatural knowledge and God will begin to trust you with some of his power.

Keep in mind. You must stay walking in God. Like with any relationship you can lose this trust and be like Samson with your eyes put out. Stay in God and you will stay in power. The beauty of God is he does forgive, but whatever mess you created will often stay. God gave Samson his strength back, but not his eyesight.

The most defining thing you will learn of someone who has returned to God for real is their conversation on Facebook will be more, mostly, almost always, always about Jesus. Conversations about Thor, LeBron James, and others seem to loose there luster for more important and pertinent things that deal with eternal life.

After all, people are dying everyday and family members are falling away and you never know when your number will be called.

How many are at this stage or have already passed this? This is a rhetorical question, I already know by your Facebook posts.

TOTAL SURRENDER

I simply put off the flesh by immersing myself in the things of God. I minimize my exposure to the dangers of the computer, ungodly programs on television, phone applications, magazines, video games, and certain friendships and stores. I know that my outside temptations are one dimension and dealing with internal temptations is another. So the first thing I do in the morning is shut myself in the room with my computer and listen to Christian worship music. I listen until I am only thinking about God and the things he has done for me. I listen until all is quiet in my mind and I am able to focus on my word. Then I begin reading scripture. I keep reading until I literally start praying and then after prayer I meditate on the things read and prayed.

I seek to change things that are revealed to me in prayer and scripture reading. It may be gossip has entered my conversation.  I am literally speaking too much and the inevitable gossip arises, because I do not have that much to say and sometimes I talk a lot. So I ask the Lord to forgive me and identify this pattern in my life and God convicts me in my conversation if I am going down the path of gossip. Gossip is now put off and now I seek to put off more things. I do this, with all that is revealed, because I love God, I humble myself to his authority and simply stop. It works wonders because more and more people trust me with their words as they will not hear them from someone else. I have put off a conversation that is ungodly and now have put on a conversation which is that of God’s gospel. I move in this manner from one issue to the next in hopes that while I preach unto others I myself will not be a castaway (1 Corinthians 9:27).

INTERRACIAL LOVE SONG

White Girl:

I tried to cover my shine
I’ve tried stayin in the lines
I, I, I, don’t wanna hide
No not tonight
 
You you you want me to
Take my light, light
Fit It in your box right
I want you to look me in the eye, eye, eye
 
Ready or not here, here, here, here, here, I come
I’m about to show you where the light comes from, oh, oh
Ready or not here here I come
This is who I am I won’t hide it
I’m a take it all over the world
To the young, to the old every boy and girl
Ready or not here, here, I come
I’m a show the world where the love is
 
I’m not ever selling out
Love and God is what it’s all about
Give him verything to see the lost get found
Yeah it’s goin down
 
You you you want me to
Take my light, light
Fit It in your box right
I want u to look me in the eye eye eye

Black Boy:

Refuse to keep this buried deep inside of me
Yeah this little light of mine
It’s time to let it shine a bit
Cause there’s no point in hiding it
It’s everything I am
The source off all my hope
And it’s the reason why I stand
I pledge allegiance to be somebody real, there’s no more holding it back
I’m showing them how I feel
Cause love is more than a word
It’s a noun and a verb
And hiding it is absurd,
Ya Heard?
 
How many knew this song is actually the top 2013 Christian hit called Ready or Not by Nicole Britt aka white girl and Lacrea aka black boy?
 
I changed the title because I was listening to the song in my car the other day and I kept thinking these two are talking about themselves more than God. Beside the single reference to God, you get lost in coming out. I thought they were coming out to tell the world about their interracial relationship. She’s saying not tonight and he’s saying cause there is no point in hiding it. Hiding what? Anyway, someone help me out here. 
 

‘Duck Dynasty’ Dad Suspended from Show

duck dynasty, cnn, James Hibberd‎, bigotry

Apparently, during an interview the Dad called homosexuality a sin. Amazing how this man has more boldness than the celebrity Pastor Joel Osteen. Anyway, should he require boldness under our Constitution of freedom of speech? He should be allowed to say whatever he desired and not be judged by it. As you know this judgment thing only goes one way.

Stories like these are becoming commonplace and the reader of the Bible should not be surprised. God will not return until it is like the days of Noah. What was happening during the days of Noah? People were murderers of fathers and mothers, sensual, following their lusts and hateful. That is what is taking place in the world in which we live.

People are shooting people for winning employee of the month at Walmart and children are going into schools to shoot and kill people.  Why? The world totes brain damage. I tote a lack of love. Listen to the mother who divorces her husband, because she is unhappy and her children suffer. They grow up and have it progressively worse in their relationships as they are disillusioned about life.

The absence of love is the absence of caring and the absence of caring is the absence of value and the absence of value is death. We kill roaches, ants, and flys all the time with ease. We don’t think about their pain. Why? Because they have no value to us.

When we do not value this man’s opinion, it is because we do not value him. Hence, suspend this man for his opinion and put this family in financial jeopardy. How many more stories at lower levels happen like this?

Do you ever find it funny that Christians don’t go around hurting homosexuals? We call it sin and that is simply where it ends. We get the blood off our hands, so when you meet Jesus, you have no excuse. Notice, how the sinner squirms when the truth hits the mind. Do you know why? You are still created in God’s image and this is why the truth is offensive to the degree you must hate this family and suspend his employment.

Call Jesus white? Call Santa a Historical Figure? Black Santa?

black santa, Jesus

You may have seen this article title on CNN or another website concerning Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly’s comment that Jesus is white. She also spoke on the whiteness of the fictional character called Santa, who obviously never visits the needy. As thousands of children every year go without a single gift.


You may wonder why this concerns me? I am glad you asked.

Her thinking is not too foreign from the majority of black and white Christian churches. It would seem the world at large has a better grip on diversity than the church. I believe it stems from the white icon called Jesus. As you know, Sunday is still the most segregated day of the week, as hordes of blacks rush to black churches and hordes of whites run to white churches.

You may not know this but when you see on the Trinitron a white Jesus with long flowing gold locks on Christmas plays and other church functions this immediately causes a separation. Why? Blacks in America feel racism everyday. Some of us more than others depending upon the circles you frequent. I was recently offered a part in an indie film as what character do you think?

God told the people of Israel not to create images of the divine, but man is seldom satisfied to pray in faith believing without seeing. He must erect some image as the object to which tribute is given, but God called this idolatry. Why? Whoever has the image would be seen as closest to God and favored. I suspect Megyn Kelly is either ignorant of this fact or racist. I choose to believe the former, given the fact she is not a representative of the church or a theologian.

I think C.S. Lewis understood this as he used a lion to represent Christ. Let the Christian church be mindful of this. The race of Jesus does matter, because as I have said, “whoever has the image would be seen as closest to God and favored.” It is simply human nature to do so. But God said, those closest to him would be those who live righteously and love him with everything and their fellow man. Images will never do this, but tangible acts of love will.

Have you ever seen a show or watched a play that made you consider the magnificence of God, because of the magnificence of man? I recently watched a show in Las Vegas, NV that was filled with spectacular stunts and … Continue reading
