I Put On…

There are so many voices that speak, but who says you have to listen? God says, set your affections on things above and not on the earth. When spiritual creatures of immense dark power come raging with false accusations and false prophecies of defeat, put on the full amour of God. Put on every piece and let his voice alone speak into your mind and fill the depths of your heart, so that when its time perform his word in your life, no weapon formed against you will prosper.

Similar to this commercial I simply put on Christ.

DON’T JUDGE ME

don't judge me, impostors, navy yard shooting suspect,

I am sure by now you have heard the term “Don’t Judge Me.” A term often used as a defense mechanism. A last resort message to ward off accusations and feelings of regret, hurt and failure. Because I am guilty and my heart has been exposed, I utter the phrase “Don’t Judge Me.” My wrong has caused my heart to break and without an adequate defense, I utter, “Don’t Judge Me.” The proverbial shield of protection but does it work?

When an individual uses the term, they neglect the problem and no solution for change is found. The psalmist writes “My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise (Psalm 51:17). When the judgment is correct, rather then harden yourself to it, use it rather to change. When a brother or sister in Christ judges my actions to be hypocritical and they are, I may be tempted to say “Don’t Judge Me” and continue being hypocritical or I could accept the judgment allow the pain to sink in and change for the better.

God cannot use individuals (for the individuals good) who are unwilling to be hurt with truth. Most of the time when people say, “Don’t Judge Me” they are wrong. The church is not required by God to judge those outside of the church, only those within it. This is how the church remains a shelter for the sick and a blessing to those who enter it.

The world is supposed to be disgusting. It should not be strange that a man desires to enter another man or a woman allows a dog to enter her. Women exposing themselves online with children and men running after little boys. This is natural behavior from an unregenerate man and such were some of us, however judging outside the church belongs to God.

When you decide to take the title I have been given by the Scriptures, my judging will begin. I am a Christian (Acts 11:26) and a minister. It is my desire that we all grow in wisdom and knowledge and understanding of the word of God. Namely, to have a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit who teaches us all things. So if our conduct is less than what the Scriptures demand, I will judge you and I will gladly accept your judgment.

I am not ignorant of the fact that if I judge the same measure will be measured against me and I assure you, that whatever judgment I cast, I am not guilty of the same. The purpose of judging our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ is so that we become better. For those who have jobs understand that the progress report is a judgment of your character and your abilities for the job you are presently engaged in. For those who desire to remain employed accept the judgment of their supervisor and change, or else continue down the same path and get fired.

How much more important is the judgment of the people of God? The people of God are judging so that you may not miss heaven and be counted with the many folks that will say, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:22-23).

God’s Favorite Race

White-Family-9

The tide is coming in. The sea is bringing all the lost letters on the shore. The love stories, of old, are coming forth into the light. The structure is changing. Can you feel it? Let the sun hit your face and look up. Let the wind spray and the taste of salt, be refreshing. The alignment is taking place and God’s favorite race is being revealed.

He is gathering from the four corners and causing a global shift. Can you see it? Are you aware that all across the nations of the world this race gathers in unity, calling the same God? He has given this race his name and they fail not to call upon it, daily, for his power to move within their lives.

God has chosen them and set them apart revealing his Son Jesus within them. As this race of people pursue him, they begin to take upon themselves his likeness. The leader looks no different from the subordinate.  Their instructions are the same. Love God and keep the faith as it have been given. Do not alter the instruction nor change its content as this changes its ability to set the captives free.

God’s favorite race has been revealed to the hearts of his children and the voice of a stranger they will not follow. He knows them. They know and love him. They are the obedient filling precious time with worship toward his Holy temple. They are holders of light and pursuers of righteousness.

You will know them by the fruit they bear. You will know them by the clothing they wear. You will know them by their delight. You will recognize them by the feeling you get when they leave the room. This race is extremely powerful and when stirred will leap over walls and trample over the so-called strong man. This race is called…

God’s Word Speaks

God's Word

The song WORD OF GOD SPEAK by Christian group Mercy Me has been running through my mind for several days now. The lyrics in the chorus are:

Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

I’ve been meditating on these words and on John 6:63, “The words that I (Jesus) speak to you are spirit and they are life.”  The primary way God speaks to us is through His Word.  Then the Holy Spirit, who lives in us, gives us revelation as we read and meditate on the words causing the words to be revelation and have special meaning for our lives.

The lyrics to the song by Mercy Me are really a prayer asking God to speak through His Word, to wash our eyes to see Him in His Word and what He desires us to know; to give us an awareness of His presence as we wait before Him in stillness and quietness and rest in Him.  God wants to communicate with us every day but it’s up to usto “be still” and listen to the Words He speaks to us.  What He has to say each day can make the difference between a good day and a bad day.  He said His Words are life.

I’ve learned to pay attention to what runs through my mind – sometimes words to a song, a scripture, a statement from one of Pastor’s sermons.  Sometimes I wake up and a song is just there – I can’t get it out of my head.  As the words from WORD OF GOD SPEAK began to run through my head over and over, I knew God was saying: “sit down, be still and open My Word.  I want to speak to you.”  Now, I have a choice to make – do I want to stop what I’m doing and take time to listen?  Do you?  Do we want to hear what God has to say to us? It’s a decision we have to make every single day.  But I’m telling you, we are in days that we need to hear what He has to say – we must hear what He has to say.  His Words are life.  To choose life, we must choose to listen to what He has to say.  “Word of God speak.”

USE THE TOOLS!

angelina jolie,

I hear the word debt and see the verse that says “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law (Romans 13:8). Could love be the catalyst of debt destruction? One thing I have noticed concerning the state of residents in America is that white and blacks are the greatest users of welfare. Some may blame immigration and so on, but Asians and Hispanics are in the single digits percentage wise.

Have they learned something that whites and black must come to realize? Are they closer to their families and this is why some statistics reveal this? After all they say the married are more financially well off then the divorced and single. Poverty’s greatest fear is rejection and hate. For when love comes on the seen, we find healing and restoration.

Some are saying there is a debt crisis in America and the state of the nation is bad, but Man of Steel is breaking records at the box office? Women are complaining about pay when more women in this nation are employed then men? More millionaires and billionaires were added to the list in 2012? Charities are being exposed for mishandling the funds. What is really going on?

Child of God (white, black, Hispanic, Asian, mixed, other), acknowledge the Lord Jesus in all your actions. You should have the mind of Christ and follow a different set of rules then the world. Although the time for true worshippers in America is ending, concerning earthly prosperity, I see a lot of pretenders (Revelations 2:9; 3:9); we still have an opportunity to live debt free and should.

If we are honest with ourselves our lusts have created our debts. We spend more money advancing the Kingdom of Darkness then the Kingdom of God and we are feeling the results. The reason the church is facing the same problems as the world is because most people are using the world’s wisdom for life and you are receiving their reward. STD’s, Divorce, Repossessions, Obesity and Blindness (spiritual). I am speaking to American Christians here.

If you believe that through Christ you can do all things, then you must believe he can cure STD’s, remove repossessions, stop obesity and give sight to the blind.  Use the tool he gave us. Pray children of God and then move toward the direction of your prayer. Turn a death ear to the world and become sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading. He leads to green pastures.

I know Kim Kardashian had her baby. I know Miss Utah fumbled on a question. I know Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, but I follow the wisdom of GOD.

ANGEL VISITATION

angel

Sometimes your interrupted sleep may be an angel. It may be the prayer prayed or the fast you have committed to. Answer it. Get out of your bed and pray a short prayer of your desire. If your are with your spouse in bed, go downstairs, bathroom, or hallway. You need not take to long. The angel is busy. Pray and then go back to sleep. I assure you, the nudge you experience will be no more. Do not miss these opportunities.

TESTED!

tumblr_m3ytnzsKFA1r6kt4uo1_500

The clock is two-minutes to nine. The time allotted for the test is almost complete. The sweat on the brow drops onto the test paper and mixes with the graphite of the pencil and thoughts of failure begin to emerge.  I have five questions left and not enough time. I need more time. The buzzer goes off and pencils down. Will I make this promotion? Will I have the victory or will I have to repeat this test again?

I have just been tested. As I carry myself outside the testing room, I am overcome with the sense of another test. This test is so much more difficult and yet a test for which I cannot escape. This test comes with promotion and a study guide as well. This test is for all mankind. No one escapes this test.

Jesus was tested. When taken by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness and fasting 40 days and 40 nights, as to be expected, he was hungry. Satan comes to test his loyalty to the Father and demands that he turn stones into bread. Jesus spoke the words recorded in Matthew 4:4 “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Similar words given in Deuteronomy 8:3 “that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.” This was a test.

The people of Israel where starved by God (Deut. 8). He was testing them. He was proving whether or not they would stay the course. Our tests are different. Our challenges are different, but they are all used for the same purpose. Whose voice will we listen to?  Will we listen to the familiar spirit? Will we listen to the ungodly friend trying to get us to sin against God? Will we listen to the person with good intentions, but ungodly advice? Will we be promoted into the kingdom of God?

Choose God’s word over every other voice. Live free. Get promoted!

Landmines in your spiritual walk with God

iran, landmines, top story, sin, bomb

Soldiers are trained in all known aspects of warfare. They are trained to battle the enemy on the land, sea and air. These are the words a recruiter might say to a new military recruit. I want to make a comparison to the training they receive which prepares them to look for landmines and our Christian walk.

A soldier will have a tool that they use to sweep the ground before they walk on it. These landmines secretly planted by their enemies are just under the earth and sometimes hidden within dead animals. If they step on a landmine it will either kill them or lame them for life. They are used by the enemy to disable any person or vehicle by an explosion of fragments that are released at high speeds. Landmines can remain active more than fifty years after they are planted in the ground. Fifty years, can you imagine that?

Do you see where I am going with this?

Our enemy Satan and his hoard of demons started setting landmines before we were born; they set them for our grandparents and their grandparents, and so on. Some of those landmines went off in our families past and we see the results in some of our lives. However, remember, they are still landmines that we ourselves have to be aware of on a daily basis.

Sure these landmines are spiritual and can’t be seen with our natural eyes, but we still face the consequences, if we over look them. Sin in all its varieties are landmines to destroy us. Believers in Christ are made aware of sin landmines and must guard themselves from the temptation that so easily besets us’.

I have good news to tell you! The Holy Spirit is our landmine sweeper! We must follow his guidance and leading…keeping our Spirit in tune with the Holy Spirit allows us to know things much faster than our mind will. The Holy Spirit as the Bible says will ‘guide you into all truths’ and he will protect you because he walks along beside you, but you must LISTEN to him!

Don’t lose your communication with the Holy Spirit, you need him minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, week by week, year by year… You need him until you pass from this life and awake in Heaven. You keep him foremost in your life and the landmines won’t destroy or harm you; you will be alerted to them before you fall into their trap because of God living inside of you!

DECEIVED

Abundant Life, Christianity, Holy Spirit, Jesus, Lord, Salvation, Sanctification, way to heaven, wickedness

He will let you fall, if you let him. He will let you die in your sins, if you let him. Hear the words of Jesus. “ If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth” (John 9:41).

There is only ONE way unto the Father. There is only ONE way to heaven. There is only ONE way to escape eternal judgment. There is only ONE way to be set free. There is only ONE way to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Acknowledge your blindness and come to the Father through his Son Jesus Christ and receive the abundant life.

Deny your self-sufficiency. Put your trust in the all sufficient-one. Be free from the chains of sin and death.  Be whole and commit your life to good works and receive the joy of the Lord, which is your strength.

Wickedness is abounding and the deception of the Lord is coming on those who are set in their ways to commit evil. Protect yourself quickly, while there is still time. This is not a game and neither am I being comedic. If you hear these words praise the Lord and if you do not, you better find out why.
