Do You Have A Jesus Pop-Out?

Jesus Christ
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.

A Bible Scholar, But No Demonstration Of Jesus Power

Some people are lead to believe that the knowledge of Scripture equals power with God, but in reality one verse in one heart of faith can do more than a 1000 verses in the mind of one that possess photo graphic memory.

If faith was easy to acquire than Jesus would not have given the disciples remedial training. Notice how many times Jesus mentioned to those who saw his power over and over again, oh ye of little faith. How many times did they forget after seeing the Christ perform again and again and again? Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father (John 14:12-13). How many pastors have you been in the presence of without an ounce of power and yet they may have degrees on the wall or in the closet? It is because they have knowledge, but little or no faith at all. They don’t believe what they read and you know they don’t, because when they pray nothing happens. If faith was easy to acquire then Jesus would not have to give the disciples remedial training.

There are two types of people I have come across from traveling the world:

1) Faith comes easy like, the centurion, in Luke 7 whom our Lord Jesus was impressed with concerning his faith.

2) Those who perpetually struggle with faith.

Of course, the two types of people I am speaking about are both Christians. People who are hellhound lack faith all together and this post is not for them. It is for the one whom faith comes easy and the one whom faith comes hard.

How do I know whether I struggle with faith? You don’t demonstrate any powers that Jesus said the believer would. You should have evidence from the mouths of those God used you to touch with power. It is easy for those with Biblical knowledge to deceive themselves, but you know deep down something is missing. I am telling you what is. It’s called faith. The prescription for lacking in this department is this. So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ (Romans 10:17). Read the BIBLE out loud and Read the WORKS of Jesus over and over and over and over again until you become him with POWER. Call demons out and lay hands on the sick. Demonstrate the words of Jesus. Paul said, “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power” (1 Corinthians 4:20).

Those whom faith comes easy do not be discouraged by Christians who struggle, but as the Scriptures have said, “Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters” (Romans 14:1). Keep pressing in the gifts that God has given you and when someone with weak faith desires to grow then give them wisdom, instruction and love. Ask God for discernment when dealing with time wasters, as Satan loves to send people with faith these types of people to slow you down.

The year is coming to a close and the window for repentance is closing, lets see what our Lord is going to do. To them with ears to hear, let them hear what the Holy Spirit is speaking.

Navigating The False Preacher (media edition)

It is important to understand that the profession of a preacher (pastor) is the edification of the hearer. To bring the hearer into a deeper relationship with Jesus as they have the call from God to lead. And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding (Jeremiah 3:15). And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: – Ephesians 4:11-12

Satan has done the same. He has elected his pastors and teachers and evangelists for the perfecting of his Satanic ministry, however, many of his pastors don’t wear titles or live in churches. They position themselves in school textbooks and cartoons. On the movie screen where millions sit with hearts open and ready to be written on. I hear children and adults tell me what is in the Bible based off of what they saw on a movie like Noah. Grown adults adding to their knowledge bank, from something they saw and did not research and study.

You hear the message being preached that Trump is a racist. Over and over again, by people who are suspected white supremacist and you have to ask yourself why? We live in a society of white supremacy and somehow the media/white celebrities care about black people? Look around at the type of people pushing this narrative and ask yourself something. What is the overall plan the Bible has laid out?

And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach (Isaiah 4:1).

God has established an order that brings with it love, joy, and peace, but when mankind is brainwashed into serving Satan, you will have sickness, depression, and untimely death.

Watch and pray for God to reveal the revelation of this blog post.

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.

Deadly Distractions

christianityWe all get distracted from time to time, but I have come to realize that distractions are often setups by the enemy to keep us from accomplishing God’s purposes. Sometimes even a major spiritual attack can be a distraction from what God intends for you to be focused on. Distractions can weigh us down, causing us to lose our focus and feel hopeless. Distractions take us off course and can cause us to end up someplace we never intended to go. Hebrews 12: 1-2 says,

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…”

Notice that there’s a difference between “weights” and “sin.” Weights aren’t necessarily sin. Weights cause us to lose our focus and the author of Hebrews tells us to keep looking at Jesus. If you’re experiencing this “weightiness,” it’s time to throw off the weights. It’s time to get your eyes back on Jesus, the One who is the author and the finisher of your faith, who brings it to maturity and perfection. If you’re being weighed down with fear because of the political and economic situations we are all facing – throw it off. Get your eyes on Jesus. Determine in your heart that He’s bigger than anything you’re facing. You may need to spend more time in the Word to get your faith level up. Romans 10:17 says, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” The more Word you put in you, the more faith you have. The more faith you have, the easier it is to lay aside weights and distractions. Whatever it is you’re worrying about, give it to Jesus, our burden bearer. Get rid of that weight. Don’t let fear and worry keep you sidelined. We are approaching the finish line so get rid of anything that takes your eyes off Jesus and let’s get his race won!
