I must confess that I have been bitten. The werewolf did not do it. The vampire is not the one guilty. It was someone else. Someone I met long ago. Someone that touched the fabric of my clothes as the oil dripped from my forehead. I recall the anointing.
I recall the power of God grabbing a hold of my mind and changing my thoughts. I was going in one direction, not the group, and found another. I changed the way I dressed. I changed the way I spoke. I changed the way I viewed life. For the first time I viewed life from an eternal perspective at not local.
No one told me to change. The Holy Spirit told me to change. I chose to be obedient. He chose to continue speaking. Disobedience closes the mouth of God and like the children of Israel you will wander aimlessly without direction and live in confusion.
Some believers, so called, said to me it does not take all that. You are being legalistic. Those same believers, so called, have cheated on their wives, lost their jobs due to drunkenness and have molested their children. I hear the words previously spoken “it does not take all that.” Really!!
Why would God in his complete awesomeness give us the Holy Spirit if he wanted us to continue living the way we lived without him? Why did he send his only Son? For me to say “it does not take all that?”
I assure you, it takes everything we have to live holy.
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. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Matthew 7:22- 24

Amy Dawson was pinned to the floor of hotel room on her wedding night. Gavin Golightly beat the 22-year-old because he couldn’t undo her dress. She was saved after escaping the room to call a night porter for help. Couple had tied knot in County Durham church ceremony hours earlier.
Golightly, 29, was given a two-year community service order at court. Miss Dawson, who has filed for divorce, said sentence was too lenient. Read more:
Take Note Ladies:
Adolescents with tattoos are much more likely than other teenagers to be involved with drugs, alcohol or even gang violence, an American study has disclosed. Tattooed teenagers were almost four times as likely as their peers to have had sex, 2.7 times as likely to be gang members, and about twice as likely to abuse drugs, alcohol or cigarettes, or to have taken part in a recent fight. Read more:
Anyone who puts this abuse to their body is not doing it solely because it is their idea. No demons love tattoos? Why? It is another way to mock God’s original creation.
Open your eyes… Give your life to Jesus… Be directed by him.
Every time a sex scandal appears in the media someone desires to speak on the subject of oxytocin? The drug tested on voles to make a man become monogamous, instead of a sex-crazed man who cannot keep his hands off of more than one woman. Does this really work and is this the real problem?
As a non-scientist, I cannot speak on the subject of the validity of the drug on human beings. Humans are more than cells and chemicals dealing with a spiritual component for which there is no test. I am not ignorant of the fact that certain neurotransmitter drugs have been effective on treating or aiding people with social anxiety disorder and other such mental issues. So why am I speaking?
The Bible speaks about man’s kryptonite. Before you think it, kryptonite, is not word for word in the Bible and neither is trinity, but the concept is certainly visible. Solomon a man known in the Bible for great wisdom and a super player or having major swag like Derek Jeter, says this about an adulteress woman. “For the lips of an adulteress drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil (Proverbs 5:3).” If that is not sensual than something is defiantly not working. Let’s try this “With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. (Proverbs 7:21).” Read that again, slowly this time and then continue on.
What is a man to do? Run. I have personally run on a few occasions. Thoughts like sissy, real men don’t run, or what will my ungodly male counterparts think, may canvass the mind, however Christian men, should cast these thoughts down. Instead, our thoughts should be focused on Genesis 39. Genesis 39 records that Joseph runs from Potiphar’s wife who is trying to sleep with him. Running is not new. Personally, if Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, or Gabrielle Union was in the building? I would run. I know you may have words like weak, pathetic, but Joseph ran and Solomon used words like forced. What does that tell you? You cannot handle it. Jesus said, under temptation he gives us a way to escape. Why? Really? Escape. Yes! Escape! (1 Cor. 10:13).
It would take way too long to become plenary on this matter, so for now. Trust me. Run. You will be a whole lot better off, than waiting on some drug like oxytocin, which may assist, but give you another problem, like so many mental drugs do.

I should not have allowed you to pass by without a single word about my most precious gift. I should not have kept running on the treadmill beside you without sharing a single word. I should not have allowed the … Continue reading
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.
