This World Is Not My Home

As a Christian you have been crucified with Jesus Christ and you died with him at the moment you became a new creature in Christ. Old things have passed away and behold all things have become new. You now have a new destination. Previously, it was hell and now you are going to heaven. The world and all its evil was your home and now you have become a foreigner. Your citizenship has changed.

The way you look at life is changed. Yes! There will be false Christians and old ungodly friends who will insist nothing has changed, by bringing up old conversations that pertain strictly to this world, when you understand that this world is now foreign. You don’t desire to engage in the club life or spend money in bars, or have any part with riotous living, you have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus.

The flesh (cravings for sin) is not dead and you will have to wrestle, but now you have a wrestle. The Spirit (craving for righteousness) within you is pulling you into the patient waiting of Christ and the abundance, of love, joy, and peace. It is pulling you into the sufferings of Christ Jesus. There cares of earthly pursuits like large homes, expensive cars, anything that humans love to brag about has been diminished and you are looking for a new heaven and earth.

Those closest to you will not understand you. They are still part of the world and God’s enemy. Living in darkness, they cannot see what is drawing you toward a different lifestyle. The invisibility of the Holy Spirit can make some believe you have lost your mind & they would be correct. You have been given the mind of  Christ. Your thoughts and beliefs systems given to you by societal norms go out the window as you receive new information about life.

Very few people will go on this journey with you. It is road few travel or even find. Stay the course. Those who choose this world over the one you currently live in will die. They will loose their soul in hell without parole. You know God and he knows you. Let’s go deeper. This is not our home.

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.

Facing the Truth

 

truth
When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away Through my groaning all day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I did not hide; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD”; And You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah. – Psalm 32:3-5

“Again, when a wicked man turns away from his wickedness which he has committed and practices justice and righteousness, he will save his life. “Because he considered and turned away from all his transgressions which he had committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. Ezekiel 18:27-28

Grow Your Congregation Fast

Congregation

Can you handle the truth?

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:13-14).

“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to (Luke 13:24).

Christianity For Seekers

Jesus died for you. If you believe and follow him, he will save you from the coming judgment. This means that your sin will not be held against you. You will become sinless before God as he becomes your scapegoat. You will be filled with the Holy Spirit of God and He will guide you.

The first thing to consider: “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38).

Pray:

Get Baptized by immersion by a man of God:

“Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?” And Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”Acts 8:36-37

Read your Bible:

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, – 2 Timothy 3:16

As you walk in obedience to what you hear from your reading of the Bible and the Holy Spirit’s teaching you will grow in wisdom, strength, and power. The pace is all up to you. The more Bible you consume and obey, the faster you grow.

Warning: Christianity has been infiltrated by imposters, false teachers and money worshippers. So, if anyone tells you to move on feelings and has no Scriptural backing for their belief, you have just ran into a Christian imposter. You cannot educate these people, just work to avoid them. Do not engage them or discuss things that gender strife. Satan uses them to deceive the weak, but you are not weak, but strong, especially if you are reading this blog.
