A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold (Proverbs 22:1). Your name is better than any designers name. Any celebrities name. Your name matters. Take full responsibility for the value of your name. Understand that your name separates you from someone else. It is a designator that says to angels and demons that another one of God’s creation exist. Your name means something.
When you spend money, it is your name attached to the dollars that leave your hand and it is your name that qualifies another. Do you value someone else name more than your own? Michael Kors, Lexus, or Star Bucks. Have you been deceived to believe that your name is less than theirs? Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Chris Brown, John Macarthur, Franklin Graham, TD Jakes, or Steve Harvey.
Who is responsible for your soul and who will God hold accountable if your righteousness falls short of the Pharisees (Matthew 5:20). Who will you blame for your excess in spending? God said, be content with food and raiment. God said, acknowledge him in all of your ways. Did you buy the car after acknowledging God? Did you buy the house after acknowledging God or did you disregard his command and now your sucking wind in debt. Do you value your own name?
That credit card is a tool that you now with reward points can make you money. Do you use it wisely? Do you acknowledge God before doing so? Whose life are you living? A Christian ceases to exist when they meet Jesus. Buried with him, your life is now only lived for his pleasure and gratification. Excess spending is a sign your living in sin. Repent.
Now pick up your cross and follow Jesus again. Now this time acknowledging him in ALL of your ways.
Many will say on the day of the Lord that they served him. That their lifestyle for all practical purposes lined up with Scripture and that they have a relationship with Jesus and God will say to them I never knew you. You served yourself and did what felt good to you and I allowed it, but I told you within my Word only those who pick up there cross daily and follow me, will find me.
To find out whether or not the God written within the pages of Scripture is your God, you must see where you stray from its text. The Bible records that out of a 1000 women not one can be found righteous, but out of a thousand men there is one. Its easy to see when you look at the survivors of Sodom and Gommorah, Jericho, or Pompeii, out of thousands so few were saved and the first two are given for the believers example on how to live on this earth.
Today, more than ever, women are ruled by their appearance. Particularly, Christian black women will find value in the name of a designer purse and will spend countless hours in work to obtain it and spend little time praying in the name of Jesus. According to statistical data black women spend thousands on their hair, but what does Paul say? Don’t adorn yourself with costly material. I know. You rather do it your way. Just remember. It is your way that will grant you a ticket to hell.
Today, more than ever, men are ruled by the female vagina and do not heed the several warnings of Solomon concerning them. He said, you will mourn when a dart strikes through your liver. The liver functions to detoxify the blood and without its proper function AIDS will destroy you. Disease will cling to your flesh and you will die and enter hell as God promised to the one who disobeys him.
You can attend church faithful, pray for others, and read your Bible, but if you forget what type of person you actually are you will die and God’s angels will escort you to hell. God does not want any of his children to be too invested in this world. We are aliens among evil people who are planning to rid the world of us at this very moment that I am writing this blog.
The devil is playing chess and for those familiar with the game know that it requires a high IQ to play it well. The higher a persons IQ the better able they are to predict your moves as well as their own. This foresight enables them to appear doubly smart and I say appear because the richest man in the world is not a world class chess player. Time and chance happens to us all.
At the devil’s staff meeting this morning the agenda on the table of utmost importance is to silence the voices of truth and infiltrate the airwaves with seemingly pointless lies. The more lies that are perpetuated the less people are able to decipher them and the more control the liar receives among the confused.
Maximum confusion is the goal. Confused people are easily manipulated and destroyed for they lack a foundation from which to glean truth. They have no foundation and therefore may be tossed in any direction the liar chooses.
The strategy for the believer in Jesus Christ is to flood the airwaves with truth. Truth is light and will help the confused person decipher the lies and thereby giving them a way to a foundation which is Jesus Christ. ALL Christians should be blogging and tweeting daily. Flood the internet and flood the airwaves with the truth.

What does a Jesus pop-out look like? What does it mean? Do you pop Jesus out whenever you need him and pop him back when you are finished. Today, we see many people asking for prayer in their nearest storm, but soon as the coast is clear, they resume with swearing, getting drunk and doing things that they ought not to. They have no desire or hunger for the things of God. In a nutshell, they are displaying the fruits of the flesh and not the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5).
This is a stench in His nose because they are just paying lip service but their lives are consistently contrary to Gods word. So the question is, is Jesus your whole life or do you pop Jesus out like a lucky charm? Is your ‘commitment’ to Christ limited to just an ackowledgemnt that he exists and that he supplies for you or have you totally surrendered your life to him and desire what he desires and hates what he hates which is sin.
I know of Scarlett Johansson, but I bet if you asked her if she knew me, the answer would be no. In the same way, many people know and even acknowledge Jesus, believe that he died on the cross and rose on the third day but MANY of those very same people will hear Jesus say ‘ I never knew you’ when they stand before him to give an account (Matthew 7:23) because they continued to work iniquity.
So how do you know that you will not be amongst that number. The bible makes it clear. Examine yourself to see if you are in the faith.

Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the LORD, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts. – Isaiah 55:7-9
Since God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts the only way outside the maze is to have the mind of God. The spiritual man judges all things, but he himself is not subject to anyone’s judgment. “For who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ. – 1 Corinthians 2:15-16
To have an ascended thought it must be thinking that comes from someone who is not bound to the earth realm. Someone who is able to travel from the heavenliness to the earth and even under the earth and also have the ability to create something out of nothing. The ability to kill oneself and later raise oneself from the dead. The only candidate we find is Jesus. Who the book of John tells us is God. Once God has been identified and we submit to his wisdom within the Bible, we are taking on ascended thoughts. The Bible is the instrument that God uses to ascend the thoughts of man. Once acquired you must follow its instructions to unlock God’s mind.
When you dive into the Bible, you are literally diving into the mind of God and your thoughts become elevated and you are ascending. Once your obedience reaches your ascended thoughts you are set free from the maze and you enter a new dimension of life. One that is foreign to anyone else that is stuck on the earth realm alone. Those who are carnal are not ascended. They live in a animalistic lust that pertains to mere animals and never reach the mind of God because they fail to dive into the Bible and obey its wisdom.
The answer to the maze for which everyone is born into is Jesus Christ. The end of the maze is eternal damnation, however you can escape the maze altogether and be free in Jesus Christ. Repent and be baptized in Jesus name. Read the Scripture and follow its contents and escape the maze with your ascended thoughts.
