FRUSTRATED TO TEARS – APATHY

tears

I am determined to move beyond myself and extend my care for others. I will not allow an apathetic disposition to uproot the plan of God. I will extend love as far as I can and depend upon my God to hold me up. I will not trust in man nor be dismayed by apathetic so-called Christians who do not take the word of God seriously.

I will not fear when God clearly has spoken upon the pages of his book that he brings with his Spirit POWER.  POWER to defeat fear and give me a sound mind. My mind has become filled with God’s wisdom and I choose to lose my mind and receive his. I suggest we daily do this. The world is growing darker. We must arm ourselves with the same mind of Jesus and prepare to suffer.

Suffer for loving the world while it rejects us. Suffer while we extend love and receive hate. Suffer for the cause of Christ. You can suffer and have joy at the same time. Have you ever hurt over a lost loved one that was heaven bound?

I thank God I was once blind, but now praise the name of Jesus, I see.

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.

Atheist Prayer: Religious Activity Not Uncommon Among Nonbeliever

atheist, prayer, spirit, spiritual

It never ceases to amaze me the confusion people have when they borrow from everything they hear. The amount of information in this world is endless. The doctrines and the philosophies are two numerous to be contained in ones mind. The different nuances of each is enough to make you throw in the toil, that is why I love the simplicity of the gospel.

I know theologians abound and they intimidate some into thinking that the Scriptures are so deep, but Jesus said, you must come to him, like a little child. Is this not the sweetest thing? Jesus said, if you love me you will keep my commands and the commands are broken down into two. Love God and mankind who were created in his likeness.

The prayer of Atheist should not be suprising. We know that there are spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places as well as God the Father. Satan desires worship just like God. Both are part of the spiritual hosts that exist in the heavenly places. The experience Atheist have with prayer makes sense. Unfortunately, the only way to the Father is through his Son Jesus, so the spirit he/she is communicating with does not love him/her and will lead them to destruction.

P.S. Everyone prays. Even those who claim they have no religion. Don’t believe the lies of those who say they don’t. They may not pray, in what some consider, traditional prayer, with folded hands, but is that really the only way, believers in Jesus pray? Communication between the spiritual hosts happens to us all. The foundational difference is Jesus is the only door to access the one true God.

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…

PRAY, PRAY, PRAY, AND AGAIN I SAY PRAY

Then He spoke a parable to them that men always ought to pray and not lose heart Luke 18:1

As a believer in Jesus the unanswered prayer is the most discouraging aspect of prayer. Much of our prayer is to fulfill our own selfish lust, but for those prayers offered that have not been tainted with selfish lust we wonder why the delay. So our response is to cease praying about it. Now if God has given you the answer and you do not like it, know that he is superior and his wisdom exceeds that of your own and he knows best. If you are waiting on the Lord, have faith the answer is on the way. The unjust judge in the parable in Luke 18 granted the woman her request because of her continual coming and God has promised to do the same for us, in the midst of him being slow to move. The requirement is having faith in God continually and ceasing not in same prayer request and it shall come to pass.

DEFAULT

Jesus, default, first,

What is your setting? What thought runs first, within your mind at the sight of danger? Where do you get answers from first? Is it the training you received in high school? Perhaps your psychology degree or sociology classes are the first thoughts that run within your mind. Who are you listening to?

If I were to ask you about relationships, would your experience define your truth or would your source be from another? If I were to ask you about an emotional problem, dealing with sickness or molestation what would you tell me? If I am single searching for the perfect mate and seem to only find abusers, what would be your words?

Would you immediately think about the Creator of heaven and earth? Would you secretly pray within your mind for the answer? Would you call on the name of the Lord?

 Your default says a lot about, who, you depend on in times of trouble. Your default is clear evidence where you stand in your relationship with Jesus. For if he is the second, third, or fourth option, you are in trouble.

Whatever default your computer comes with can be changed, but not without the knowledge and time spent to change it. Spend time with Jesus and let him change your default.

MUSIC

music, christian, secular

This blog may cause the reader some nausea, so I warn you from the beginning. This subject is one fraught with disagreement and some even get violent when it does not fit the mold in which they are comfortable and that is fine with me. We all have areas of growth. Namely, loving our neighbors as ourselves. With that aside, I begin.

For those who may be confused about so-called Christians listening to secular music, let me clear it up. They are not following God. They profess to follow him, but do not in this area. How do I know? Who receives the glory and adoration in secular music? You or God? Is God dividend? Are there more than two kingdoms? So if you conclude that there is the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light, then it must mean God has music as well as Satan?

How does one identify whether or not God or Satan inspires the music? Can a spring produce both fresh and salt water? So if a person has titled their music as secular then how is it not Satan’s music? Or could it mean some can be holy and others not inspired? Really? Now if a secular person decides to sing a traditional Christian song, should this inspire? Should the believer be pleased with this deceptive and hypocritical behavior? Would Jesus be pleased?

How does one manifest the attributes of one working toward perfection when one meditates (listens to secular music) on lies and deception? You do know Miley Cyrus new song right? “We can’t stop” Which goes:

It’s our party we can love who we want
We can kiss who we want
We can live how we want

To my homegirls here with the big butts
Shaking it like we at a strip club
Remember only God can judge us

Is this scriptural? I realize some will say, is all her music like this? Again I say can a spring produce both fresh and salt water?

Don’t get me wrong, I pray Miley Cyrus comes to know Jesus and feel sad for her father. But professing saved parents and grown people what message are you giving your children?

I could use Beyoncé’s new song “Bow Down” Which goes:

I took some time to live my life
But don’t think I’m just his little wife
Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted

This my sh-t
Bow down, b-tches
Bow down, b-tches

Really! I know she sung a song about putting a ring on it. To this I say, can a spring produce both fresh and salt water? Protect yourselves and protect your children.

We are to be separated from this world, in the vicinity, but not of it. It is crucial for us to remain individuals, so that when Miley gets tired, she has somewhere to go.

WHAT HAPPENED TO LOVE?

love, poetry

Do you love me? Do you desire the best things in life to happen to me? Do you want to see me prosper? Are these questions making you uncomfortable? Why? When is the last time you put aside your pride and need to be above and not beneath to show love?

Not some anemic substandard love, the love that causes an inner movement. Not some ungodly lust, but your tongue filled with words that edify.

You have been hurt. I know. You have been lied to. You have been cast aside by someone in the church. You think because you have been hurt that closing the doors to love is the best policy. No, no. Not so.

There is nothing in life more precious than love. There is no greater power and motivation on earth. A man’s love for a woman can be so powerful that he will start a war with a nation. Ask Samson. So powerful that fear looks at it and fears. Love is relentless.

When executed properly it will destroy burdens and remove sickness. When executed properly, it will melt the hardest heart and break into tears the strong man.

God himself is love. You will never be more like God, then when you love your enemy as yourself. Remember, God rains on the just and unjust. The secret to having love is simple and hard. I have found that when I worship God in song DAILY, the anointing of God falls and empowers me to love others. It is only when God is the object of my affection that I will have the expression lived out in representation of my conversation.

Lovers Only
