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

christianity
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 thrown 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.

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.

SWEET AND DEEP

78c08c1fbeb7b6ba3470605af5b4a19dWhen you understand the Holy Spirit more you will understand his power. You may have stopped by this blog today, because you are a subscriber and this is good. You may have fallen here by mistake, if that’s even possible, whatever brought you here, I hope, will cause you to stay. Why? I have something wonderful to share.

The Holy Spirit is the person of God. He is the guide in this life that directs the believer into his truth. He is the one with whom believers hear the wisdom of God. The Comforter directs us and hears our prayers. He moves on the words from our lips that match the lips of Jesus.

To understand the power of God and to have a personal relationship with Jesus is to have a relationship with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will tell you how to dress. The Holy Spirit will give you wisdom when you ask in Jesus name.

The Holy Spirit is sensitive to the believer. He can be quenched. When this happens the believer no longer hears from the Holy Spirit. There is no more conviction as the person has fully engaged himself or herself in disobedience against God’s word. Listen. Repent. Ask the Lord for forgiveness and began again to seek his face. As the word is acted upon in obedience, like a dry root the water of the word will revive it.

We as believers are missing out on a lot. We think sex is good and forget God created it. How much more sweet and deep things, can God create for us, who seek his face fully? If you are not being guided daily by the Holy Spirit that means something is wrong. Why? Because God does not just want some of your life and then take a break, he wants it all. When you give it all, he gives his all.

Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 2.29.45 PMWhat 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.
