Can’t Do Christ Right!

To My Readers, I love You! Thank You! I Thank You!

My Love! Can’t Do Christ Right! 

When I say “Can’t do Christ Right” I mean some people want to do right by Christ, but there is a struggle going on. Yes we love Lord Christ, and it can seem like there may be some things which  blocks us from giving Him our all. Yes we all have struggled and some of us still are.  But it’s O.K., because that’s life. Yeshua understands that, but in the process He gives us a chance to repent and eventually get it right.  So when I say “Can’t Do Christ Right” , I mean he provides us new mercies and grace daily to do right by Him!  He is patient with us in so many ways with so many things.

Why?  Because He truly loves us, and have committed His life to make it so!  When I say committed His life, he did.

  • He came down from Heaven for us
  • He left a life of royalty  for us
  • He died for us
  • He bled for us
  • He suffered for us
  • He performed miracles for us
  • He taught  us
  • He  stood us for us
  • He fought sin for us
  • He sent the Holy Spirit for us
  • He denied Himself for us
  • He set us free
  • He’s fighting satan for us
  • He taught us to stand for the right things
  • He listens to us
  • He stands in the gap for us
  • He pleads to the Father  for us
  • He loves us
  • He forgives us
  • He pardons us
  • He binds the hands of the enemy
  • He  anoints us
  • He  explains things to us
  • He chose us in Him
  • He prefects us as saints
  • He provides us mercy
  • He provides us grace
  • He rescues us
  • He blesses us
  • He provides  for us

I hope you are getting the idea. We’ve got so much to be thankful, in the name of Yeshua the Messiah!!! Let us not forget.

Because of all His mighty works, we owe Him! Oh how He loves you and me!

If we only think;  we’ve got so much to be thankful for in Him -Christ! His eye is on the sparrow and His eyes are on us.

All Yeshua wants from us is our selves, to do His earthly duties.  He wants us live for Him.

In my former college classes, I admire one of my college Advisors because one day I went to her office to talk. So while we were talking I told her I really admired her. I told her I really appreciated her because she seemed to really understand the students, and she really seemed to help us so much. She told me that she loved her job, and she really wanted us to succeed, here at the college. She seemed to really understand the needs of the nontraditional students. You could really tell, because she was really different from some of the other advisors.

I liked talking to her. She so often encouraged me. One day when we were talking I told her how some of the assignments, were so difficult.  Some of the professors didn’t seem to explain enough to get the students  to understand what it was they expected from the assignments.   This is what she said to me. “If a professor would take  a little time to explain assignments, there would be less problems. If each student could understand the thing(s) that were expected; a lot of the students’ grades would improve drastically. If a student understood the expectations then, it would make for a better experience in the class room. And the things being taught would finally become  so simple.  Some of the instructors expected you to perform miracles without an understanding of the assignments. Then she said expectation is everything! If  a student knew the expectations of the assignments, then there would be less confusion. Sometimes when you ask some professors to explain the assignment, they look at you one-sided. But some will explain. (Not all professors are like that, I’m speaking for myself)

So, I said that to say this; “if we knew what Yeshua expects of us; then we would probably respond to Him better.  The Bible would not seem so complicated to us. Our earthbound assignment that Lord Yeshua has appointed for us would not be considered too hard for us to complete. His will for us would be readily understood, and would make for a better follower of Him. Maybe if some knew exactly what Yeshua expected then it would become so elementary for us. So in saying that, I mean the instructions found in the Bible would not seem so difficult and hard for some to obey.

So to simplify it:

  • He wants obedience
  • He wants our hope placed in Him
  • He wants us to go and seek to be born again in Him
  • He wants us to repent
  • He wants us to come to Him
  • He wants us to believe in Him
  • He wants us to love Him
  • He wants us to listen to Him
  • He wants us to abide in Him
  • He wants us to take up your Cross and follow Him
  • He wants us to love Him with all of our heart,  mind, soul and strength
  •  He wants us to rejoice and leap for joy in Him
  • He wants us to fear Him because He can destroy the body and soul in Hell
  • He wants us to worship Him in spirit and truth
  • He wants us to pray and do not lose heart
  • He wants us to not to be anxious about the necessities of daily life
  • He wants us not to be anxious about the threats of man
  • He wants us to humble ourselves and stop being prideful
  • He wants us to humble ourselves in child likeness  in  servant hood and  be broken hearted within Him
  • He wants us to do not be angry
  • He wants us to trust in His greatness
  • He wants us to embrace mercy and forgiveness
  •  He wants us to do the will of His Father who is in Heaven
  • He wants us to be justified in our trusting of Him
  • He wants us to be transformed
  • He wants us to strive to enter through the narrow door, because life is a war
  • He wants us to  love our neighbor
  • He wants us to go out into the land and help others become His disciples

So I hope I’ve help simplify His commands. He does not demand much, but what He does command  He expects us to understand- So Lets’ Do IT! Let’s OBEY CHRIST! Let’s Do Him Right!

LET’S DO CHRIST THE KING, LORD OF MERCY AND GRACE – RIGHT!

Can We Stop the Sin Cycle?

YES!

I knew this very old man once and he never went to a church. Never went at all. And when we would walk to church and pass his house on the way to church, he would always send two dollars to put in the collection plate. I was about 11. I would often wonder why he did not go to church. He would always smile when we walked pass his house on Sunday. He would always tell us to be good in church. But he never went. So the Sunday ritual went on for years. Then one day he was not there, and we asked his sister where was he, she said he was in the hospital. So every Sunday kept rolling along. Then he died, but before he died we saw him on his porch 2 mores times and he said, I have pleaded with Jesus to let my soul enter heaven, I have lived a good life and now since I am on my death-bed. I see my mistakes. I asked him what mistakes and this is what he said. “I have done everything I wanted to do in life, but I never gave God a second thought. I have had everything in life, and I never gave God the credit. I have went everywhere in life I wanted to go, and I never took God with me. I have eaten all kinds of food, and I never said grace, or asked Jesus to bless it. I have been knocked down to my knees and I never said a prayer. I use to go to the clubs in my day, but never to church. I have lifted my head to look up towards the sky and never acknowledged the creator. I have given things away but never to the Lord. I gave money away, but never to the Lord. So now I am at His mercy. I didn’t see my mistakes then, but believe me I see them now!  So, children when you go to church next Sunday, ask God for me, to give me something. We said what, give you what and he said, ask Him to give me life”.  Now as I looked back, I guess he must have meant eternal life.

Words that may help you decide your fate:

Condemn/Condemnation – God’s judicial pronouncement of sinful humanity’s guilt before Him. It is a declaration of our depravity and the punishment we deserve for it. Condemnation is the opposite of justified. When we give God control over lives then we will no longer be condemned.

Flesh – Flesh doesn’t refer to our physical bodies. It refers to our orientation and identity before God saved us. We are unbelievers, controlled and enslaved by sin, rejecters of God, a people who have preferred sin over righteousness. When we allow the flesh to have control over us it will rule! Whenever we allow God to change us then the flesh cannot control us anymore. But that’s a very hard task for us on our own, so that’s why we have to plead to Yeshua to help us. After you decide that you don’t like living a sin filled life, and want to change. There is a way out.

Gospel –means “the joyous proclamation of God’s redemptive activity carried out through Yeshua the Christ, on our behalf because we are enslaved by sin. When we read the Holy Bible and believe its words and actions, and if we take it to heart, believe that Yeshua the Christ died on the Cross for us, paying the penalty for our sins and for allowing us to be forgiven. Then we must believe that He was raised with victory from the place where he was buried, and lives within us today, and lives for us today. Then you are living the good news (the Gospel) of Yeshua the Christ. If you would like to know more about the “Good News” read the Holy Bible. The New Testaments covers the truth of the good news, which is usually called “The Good News”. But, a lot of us will be like the old man. Sin is too good to give it up; until we come to the point where we can no longer take part in the sin process. Or in other words, live to lie on the death-bed. OR maybe, if we die suddenly never having the chance to lie upon the deathbed then what?

GraceFavor which is only granted to the believer of CHRIST. If you ever people talking about “we saved by grace” it means that salvation comes to us, not by our ability or our own might. It comes to us because Yeshua decided to give it to us. How? By us, living up to His standards. Not our own standards, but by the standards God gave to us to follow in the Bible. Instead of receiving the judgment we deserve, by spinning our eternity in Hell, Yeshua decided to forgive us and let us start over again; never having to be reminded of our sinful lives we had lived. Grace has given us a second or third chance, to get it right. To develop that right spirit within us.

Justify/Justification – Lord Yeshua declares that if we sinners believe in Yeshua Christ, and is righteous because of Christ Yeshua. To be pardoned from punishment for sin and declared guiltless. A person is justified by the Savior’s grace through faith in him. This faith is shown by repentance and obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel. Jesus Christ’s atonement enables people to repent and be justified or pardoned from punishment they otherwise would receive.

Law – The Law defines sin and righteousness and bears witness to the righteousness of God in Christ. The Law was given to result in life. The Law is spiritual, holy, righteous and good. It comes as no surprise that sinners have no love for law, especially the Law of God. All men are born sinners, dead in their trespasses and sins. They hate God and His  Son and His Word. The natural man cannot understand it and seeks actively to oppose and overthrow it. Yet unbelievers’ disdain for the Law of God is not surprising. What is distressing is the number of Christians who disdain the Law of God. The Law of God is seen by some Christians as something evil, something of which we would do well to get rid of.

Propitiation – The word propitiation carries the basic idea of appeasement, or satisfaction, specifically towards God. Propitiation is a two-part act that involves appeasing the wrath of an offended person and being reconciled to him 1 John 2:2  He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son Yeshua, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Righteousness – Yeshua Christ is our righteousness.  We do not and cannot obtain a right relationship with Yeshua in our own righteousness because our self-righteousness is as filthy rags.  We are guilty sinners in the need of a perfect righteousness and being in Right Standing with God through Christ Yeshua.  A person can be defined as righteousness if they have God’s character as all righteousness comes and is given from God. God is the ultimate authority of what is right and wrong. He has revealed his righteousness through his commandments, his prophets, and through Yeshua Christ. From a Christian perspective, righteousness is defined as being in right standing with God because of Christ Yeshua‘s death on the cross. Without Christ Yeshua,  no person can be in right standing with God. Righteous is not of works.

Salvation – if Yeshua is holy and righteous and I am a sinner and Yeshua  hates sinners and sends them to hell forever, then I’m doomed. While it is true that Yeshuais holy and cannot overlook sin, the Bible tells us that Yeshua has determined to save a people from the guilt and penalty of sin. Because of Yeshua’s moral, holy character He had to choose a method of saving men which honored His law; which did not overlook sin but rather paid the penalty for it in full. The apostle Paul put it this way, Yeshua’s method of salvation had to prove “His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus” (Rom. 3:36). This teaching is what separates Christianity from all other religious faiths. With Islam and modern Judaism men say they are sorry, turn over a new leaf and then Yeshua overlooks their sins. In these systems the guilt of sin and the liability of punishment that all sin deserves is not really dealt with but simply arbitrarily set aside. The god of Islam and modern Judaism is most certainly not the God of the Bible. In our previous section we demonstrated that because of who Yeshua is, He cannot overlook sin or just forget about it. Sin must be paid for in full. Therefore, there are only two alternatives for men. They can either pay for their own sins by going to hell and suffering for their crimes against YESHUA  or they can trust in a substitute who pays for their sins by suffering and dying in their place. It is Christ Yeshua and Christ alone who meets all of our needs because only He eliminates the guilt and penalty of sin, satisfies God’s wrath and reconciles a holy God with men. “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sin” (Eph. 1:7). Jesus has “made peace through the blood of the cross.”

I have observed one thing about us as humans, we live as if there is no tomorrow. Some live as if they will never leave this place. Some live as if they believe nothing about the Holy Bible, and some of us live as if, or when we die, that’s it! But I know that somebody has been lied too. There will always be a place waiting for us after we die. After we take our last breath on earth, we have another life we are going to live, in Heaven or in Hell!

Some people  make provisions for tomorrow and some don’t. Some of us know that this is not our home we’re just passing through. Some think this will be their home forever. So they store up material treasures. Some store up nothing. Some leave behind a good legacy. Some leave behind a legacy of destruction. Some of us will be proud of the legacies we left behind, for others and some won’t. Some of us will go to Heaven and some won’t. It is Yeshua’s desire that we all go. But we all know that’s not going to happen. Not at all. Why? There are only a few humans who are sincere Christians. A few that believe  Lord Yeshua. We play with  Lord Yeshua like we play with a toy. Put Him in the corner for months and years, or until we remember or have been reminded that we put the toy up in the closet somewhere. He’s a real being! That can decide our fate. He will also decide where we will spend eternity!

There is so much action going on, and does not include Lord Yeshua, not even in the churches. There is so much going on in our lives that we put Lord Yeshua aside until we find the time to communicate with Him. Some of us never find the time to communicate with Him because we put ourselves before Him. We’ve been WARNED! If we say we haven’t then we lie and the truth is not in us, nowhere to be found.

We’ve been WARNED!

 You say warned about what?

About us Sinning and Playing with the Lord of Heaven- Yeshua!

The Holy  Bible Warns us EVERYDAY if you pick it up and read it!!

EXAMPLE: We are like hard-headed kids! We won’t get right in the head or act right until we see our parents pick up a belt. Then we cry and apologize. But with some parents that will not work because we have done wrong it so much. Same with Yeshua, He has fore- warned us, but we’re still not listening, so when we suffer and hurt, then we call on Him to stop the pain. He’s not listening because He already told us!

But I’ll tell you one thing; our Sovereign Lord Yeshua, does forgive, but don’t temp Him, because we are the ones who have a lot to lose!
