With all of the hoopla about Christianity and God, there has to be a definite path for comprehending the magnitude of them both. The word of God is factual and available to understanding the vast knowledge of God’s will. Jesus understood them all too well as He avoided the temptation of encountering the subjects. Every book you read is because you chose to or needed to, having a desire to know and understand the contents. The same applies to the Bible, which is the Word of God. You grasp the message and believe in the author’s descriptions of his characters, the plots and the truth about what he or she is saying.
It amazes me how we tend to uphold and embrace some of the weirdest and no progressive work around, to find ourselves doubting the one who created us, and remains to be an award winning author. I thought on how the majority of people can quote or repeat books of authors who we seldom know or will ever get to know. You believe and obey fables, fairy tales and characters that are so off and you hardly know or understand God. He laid down His life giving proven “facts” of living for all.
I have become saddened and weary, trying to understand our purpose of reading the Bible, if we are not going to believe it, in its entirety. The present debate and uproar about same-sex marriages, being free from sin, everybody is doing something wrong and the likes of such debates, are one thing but when compared to what God requires, would make it all unrighteous and wrong. We are to love people but when those people, whoever they may be, have made a decision to violate the principles ofGod, you continue to love them but hate the violation. The perpetrator has made their decision to ignore God’s will, in order to satisfy their desires, longings and to appease the populists.
The scriptures are very adamant and plain about the above topics and there are no gray areas at all. We have sought ways to alter and tailor certain scriptures, as well as traditions, to accommodate the desires of people. My position on the topics, especially the sin issue would probably have one to believe that I am sardonic in thinking. Well let me help you to get the picture I’m painting. If everyone is doing wrong even if one thing, what is the purpose of salvation; for even a sinner may be involved in just one thing? What separates the sinner from the saint? A confession of accepting Christ, could be done by anyone, including the vilest of individual and yet remain with the one fault. If there is an all powerful, nothing impossible and flawless spirit that you possess, how is it that it has no power to sustain you?
I know you may have wondered to yourself, what’s next? Well, I have a real good one for you. I thought that I would let you in on some concerns that are going on in the Body of Christ, just in case you were not up to date on the info. Rumor has it that the people of God are getting wearier than the people of the world due to the “Economic Upheavals“. The stress level is so high that the people doubt the very God who saved, provided, comforted, healed and delivered on yesterday but on today, right now, they have lost their connection with Him. He remains to be the Wonderful Counselor, Jehovah Jireh our Provider, Comforter, Savior, and El Shadai, the “all” Sufficient one and the God of more than enough. So many people are using the cell phones to get their message across, regardless of what it is, but as soon as they travel to a place not familiar to their local service, it costs them for the roaming.
It is time to know and to do what is needed to survive, stay connected and avoid roaming to prevent extra charges from being added to your situation and life. To roam away or leave from your local church service is insane, at a time such as this. If you are in a place of ministering the truth (non–compromising messages), you have the ability to operate in your gifts in an orderly and permitted format, and you are seeing growth, fruits of the spirit, agape, the power of God, accompanied with the anointing flowing, an apostolic/prophetic release/paradigm and you know that your life has been transformed and the peace of God dwells there, then I would seriously advise you to go back to your local service to prevent charges that you will not be able to afford, causing your situation to worsen. Things are so high and it is a real cost for our disobedience and staying away from the place that the Lord has called us to serve (roaming).
There is so much talking but not much walking, whether it be for a demonstration of a lifestyle to exhibit Christ neither to show the strength of endurance and stamina to maintain a healthy approach. We must endure hardness as a good soldier and fight the good fight of faith. We must pick up our cross and “follow” Him” daily, regardless of who does not like it nor understand it. Your prosperity, destiny and success depend upon your decision to stay connected with the right service and the right plan (the truth of God’s word) that is profitable for your own spiritual needs and requirements for your growth. You’re staying with the right service and in the right position that you were called, helps you to help others stay connected as well. When you allow the lines to drop, then all others that are connected to that line will drop as well. Do not be a stumbling block to anyone especially the unbelievers and the immature. Sometimes a person cannot help the roaming charges for they are not intentionally going to a place that they were not called to go or serve (travel); but if the service of their local service is not available, they will definitely be charged. This is so ironic and revelatory; for if we leave intentionally and go to a place that we were not called to serve, it will cost us later. People are not stable or steady enough to hear the voice of the Lord to know what it is that He wants them to do. (more…)
I am sitting here thinking on some things and wondering what’s next. I have embarked upon many tasks to enhance my profile or rather my repertoire. I know that many are wondering what is it that they must do at such a time as this and many may say they do not know what they should do.
Well you should take out some time to reflect upon what it is that you have done or what it is that you would want to do in life. Then you make it your business to target it and hit it head on. Do not allow your own mind or pass failures or successes to deter you from the new task at hand.
Every good gift comes from God and is given to be used effectively by you for Him and the people who need it as well as you. It’s better to give than to receive.
Reflecting brings a sense of profound and deep searching, realizing things that were never realized or thought upon before.
It is a cleansing process as well and it gives you a sense of knowing and wanting to do something about what has been revealed or surfaced while reflecting. We all have things that we want to do, forget as well as recover. Whatever it is, you need the time to get the directions and wisdom as to how you will go about obtaining that goal or purpose.
Be still sometimes, shut your eyes sometimes, shut your mouth sometimes, shut your ears sometimes, shut you down sometimes, and observe the response of yourself or the reaction of the process at hand. When you shut down, you become more open to the things that the Lord has for you. You have a clearer mind, conscience and your spirit purer at that point.
Everyone gets a different response or reaction depending on the length of time used to reflect and how they reflect, as well as their motive.
Reflections can be positive or negative, but I am attempting to provoke the positive.
You are absorbing the internal and the external feelings and the forces that have been there but not activated, due to you not allowing yourself the time to reflect upon it. There is a consumption of wealth in knowing what you have available to you to experience, take in and utilize.
Reflecting does not help just you, but the people who you come in contact with, by allowing a free flow of the will to release pure actions and thoughts towards others and self. Be able to handle the reflecting process for some things may surface that you may have wanted to stay hidden but all things must be dealt with righteously, appropriately and accordingly.
It is like a cathartic, eliminating everything that has held you bond, confused or captive. It is an experience that you should do for yourself, often eliminating unhealthy characteristics that are not conducive to your growth and development.
Reflect now upon this: You are not just sitting but you are embracing a day of reckoning where you are being adorned and crowned with a mantle of peace, joy, happiness, success, and prosperity. You see yourself in that place that you have always dreamed of being.
It is a serene scene, an ambiance of profound beauty and excellence. You know that you have arrived and you or no one else can do nothing about it, for God is with you every step of the way. You have accomplished every dream, eradicated every doubt, and ignored every hater and negative attack, as well as being more confident than ever. Come on and dream it, see it, taste it, embrace it, know it and go for it TODAY, right now. Do not allow anymore procrastination, while you go for the experiment of a lifetime and dream.
When people do not want to be bothered with you on today, and that day is over and gone, remember to remind them not to bother you on your days of tomorrow when they come for you. People will write you off like a bad debt when you have nothing, including vision.
Weeping may endure for a night but your joy “will” come for you tomorrow. (Your morning=your day-accomplishments)….
Everyone needs a time to get away with themselves, their God and their passion. In order to understand self and the surrounding circumstances that surfaces in your life you need to quietly meditate and seek answers in order to maintain the harmony, stability and productivity to continue growth.
