Do you see a problem?

Many will say to me in that day, 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).

You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot share in the Lord’s table and the table of demons (1 Corinthians 10:21).

Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin (Leviticus 18:22).

Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10).

Watch out! This is not new. Paul talked about this heavily in his letters to the church. Those who commit sin and willfully decieve will receive a harsh judgment from God. Protect yourself from false teachers. They cloak themselves with the Bible, but evidently do not teach it. Woe unto them who teach to blalantly deceive, when the Bible is clear.

It would be better for them to create their own book and teach from that.

Church Response should you see this arise in your church?

Then you must throw this man out and hand him over to Satan so that his sinful nature will be destroyed and he himself will be saved on the day the Lord returns (1 Corinthians 5:5).

The Devil Wants You in His Kingdom

nicole

The devil is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. He will use anyone to garnish your attendance to his kingdom. If it is a beautiful woman he will use it. A beautiful man he will use it. If it is money or fame, he will use it. Anything that create’s a thirst or lust that does not pertain to Jesus Christ, Satan will use it.

You must daily feed on the word of God. It is so important with the daily onslaught of ideas contrary to God’s will. The moment you receive contrary thoughts, quickly cast them down and use the word of God. The fight can get tedious and tiring, but do not grow weary.

Look up. You have all things, given by God, to handle any situation he allows. He said, he would never leave or forsake.

The devil wants you in his kingdom of mockers and soul sellers for a one-way ticket to hell. His destination is set. You have been given an opportunity by God to turn from wickedness and repent.

Go ahead and do that now. Turn from wickedness, repent, and be baptized in Jesus name. Then walk in light and love.

KEEP THE HOUSE CLEAN

Jesus, house cleaning

”For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” (2 John 1:7-11).

Be careful who you cosign. When you cosign on a sinners evil, you become a partaker. Their evil reward becomes yours.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Everyman greatness

We should be careful who we praise. Our children are watching. It is a sad day when those who clearly lived a life of sin are exalted and those with true nobility are seldom heard or exalted.

It does not surprise me. It has been foretold already in the Scriptures. The anti-christ should come and there are already antichrists here. Those who do not hold Jesus Christ in high esteem and exalt his righteousness are fooling themselves in thinking you can be great without him.

Our children are watching who we place upon the pedestal and if we are not careful they will one day desire to attain the same. I do not want my child trapped in sin and darkness. I do not want my child lusting after things that are fleeting. I do not want my child making excuses for mediocrity and sin.

I want my child to know what true greatness is. I want my child to exalt Jesus and him crucificied and resurrected. I do not want my child to think that every death is worth honor. Let there be a difference between two men or women. Those who die with honor and those who throw their life away, living in the pleasures of sin for a season.

Christians should take a word from Jesus “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

Overcoming Insomnia

black-31

* This requires spiritual discernment. If you do not know Jesus Christ as Lord, this will appear to you as foolishness. 

I love to sleep. It is almost one of the most enjoyable times of my life. The reason I like sleeping is because it is so refreshing to the body. Last night, I had a dream where I won an award for “Man of the Year”. Not sure what I did to earn it, but I did accept the award. Maybe God is telling me something about pride. In any instance, I slept well and woke up fine.

I happen to love going to sleep well and waking up fine. Now there are times when the Holy Spirit will awake me out of a good sleep to pray. I will get up and go downstairs into the living room and pray. Once I am finished praying, I have no problem returning to sleep. This only happens two or three times a month.

Good sleep happens, in part, because I set my mind on things above. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee (Isaiah 26:3). I also believe “it is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep” (Psalm 127:2).

Sleep is a spiritual thing. A restless person is plagued at night or whenever its time to sleep because of something messed up in the spirit. “For they cannot sleep unless they have done wrong; they are robbed of sleep unless they have made someone stumble” (Proverb 4:16). The devil will not allow you to sleep properly if you are not fully committed to the Lord. It hurts the groin when you try to ride the fence.

The person who rides the fence will face the greatest difficulty in sleeping at night. Lukewarm Christians have it really bad.

If you’re fully committed to serving Satan he will allow you to get a good nights sleep so that you will be refreshed in the morning to commit more terror with zeal.

If you’re fully committed to serving Jesus Christ, he will provide a barrier that Satan cannot overcome and will allow you to get a good night sleep, so that you can win souls for Christ and love people with all your might and have a great zeal.

Are you having trouble sleeping? Examine yourself. Are you fully committed to serving Satan? Are you fully committed to serving Jesus Christ? Choose to fully commit to either one and you will receive good sleep

If you decide to fully serve Satan, please understand his whole team will perish at the coming of the Lord Jesus, including the humans that join his alliance.

For those of you, who God has chosen, will get no rest until you fully commit to serving Jesus Christ. You Jonah’s need to stop resisting the Lord and come on over, trust me, the sleep is sweet on the Lord’s side.

BREATHE WELL IN SUFFERING

breathe

It is natural to run from the sufferings of this life, only to find more suffering. Some work to drown sorrows in alcohol, sex, drugs, gambling, shopping, etc. Some may use weird techniques to eliminate the pain by meditating on absolutely nothing. When will earthly suffering end? The answer: The Grave. You must run through life with this understanding. Just accept that life’s suffering unites color, sex, and socio-economic status. There is a natural unity in all of mankind and that is suffering.

The moment resolution is made about suffering in this life, you can move on with faith believing and trusting in the impossible. Jesus learned obedience by the things he suffered. Suffering is as natural as breathing air. Let the fire of suffering make you shine as gold.

There are two types of suffering. The first is because of disobedience to Christ and the second is obedience to Christ. You can add unnecessary suffering to your life. For all the pleasure that sin gives there is a tail that brings suffering. Ask the addict who lost everything they had in their life because of it. This suffering should be avoided and can be avoided by obeying the voice of God and understanding his will for your life. The second suffering can never be avoided. This suffering is found when you choose to obey God’s word over strong desires to sin against it.

There is a pain that develops in telling your flesh the answer is no. Ask the dieter who tries diligently to put down the potato chips, ice cream, pizza etc.  The body will fight you. The devil will fight you. Spiritual darkness in heavenly places is against your success. Why? Your success shines the light for others to see and rejoice in the fact that making it is possible.

Breathing well in suffering is found in understanding that your suffering is not strange. For the follower of Jesus Christ understands that it is common to all believers. Since it is common, sit back and trust the Lord for the roller-coaster ride is almost over. Grab the hand next to you and say we will make it. Don’t allow the screams of others to cause you to lose hope. Jesus will never leave or forsake you and in the end he will be there to bring you home.
