When You Do Not Understand…

if u don't understand it just say it , it ok..

if u don’t understand it just say it , it ok..

Maybe you do not understand… Sometimes a lack of knowing or a lack of understanding could cause you to interpret the meaning of anything the wrong way. Some people just don’t understand and some cannot comprehend the meanings of that which is being said. When things are very hard to understand it may be due to the wording, how the words are spoken or written.

Example: if you speak english only and someone is trying to tell you something in French, you will look at them strangely and have a puzzled look on your face.  You totally don’t understand anything being said, so u do nothing because you are at a loss for what is being said. Later u may ask yourself what were they telling me? You might feel bad because you did not understand, and rationalize it by saying oh well I do not speak french.

Same as for the Word of God, u just don’t understand it, it makes no sense to you, so u tend to ignore that which makes u feel less smart. When u read something that u do not understand, u tend to put the book down quickly. it has no interest to u. You cannot get interested in the book.  So most often if u cannot get moved or our interest is not sparked, we often loose interest in that particular book.

So as it is for some, when it comes to reading the Bible. There is no connection with what is being said in the Bible so it does not spark your interest at all. So when u do not understand something what do u do? Do you put it down and walk away. Do you feel like since you cannot understand it then, this book is not for you? Do you lose total interest in the book? Do you feel like this book is not the type of book you would like to read? What do u feel about a book u have no understanding of or have not taken an interest in? Do you walk away from it never to pick it up again? That can be very easy to do and never pick it up again. Why? Because u feel u have nothing in common with anything written in the book at all.

Guess what? That is not true at all. It’s just the opposite. You have so much in common with the book that u can’t even imagine. The book, The Bible was written just for u. Its your personal friend and it has so much in it concerning your life. The Bible is your personal book  of answers. It answers all of your questions, and answers questions that you often wonder about. The Holy Bible is your friend. There is a saying, “The Bible will keep you away from Sin, or Sin will keep you away from the Bible”.

How does the body mind and soul function spiritually? We can see with the eye how the body functions carnal. Do we know the difference, we should it is very easy to tell the difference between the two. First what is spiritual?

Spiritual  relating to, or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things

Spiritual is something related to or concerned with religion, the spirit or the soul.

Spirituality – An awareness of the metaphysical, the religious, or the sublime. In practice, spirituality includes participation in organized religion, contemplation, meditation, prayer, reflection, and activities fostering self-growth and connections with others and with nature.                                                                                                        http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/spiritual

It can be a very broad subject, because so many people have described spiritual as having and being so many things.

According to Watchman Nee, Spiritual is having the nature of God dwell within you. Its partaking of  or having a spiritual life:

Often we as humans live as if we are our own creator, maker or inventor. We are not. Concerning a person which has never been in tune to God, the facts does not matter. But as it concerns a person that is fully aware of God and all of His doings and attributes, will  know the importance of the Spiritual life. If there is  life, living, breathing then you do have a spirit. But if you are dead, non-living, non-breathing  then there is no spirit there dwelling within you. No human is complete without a spirit. Some confuse the soul as being the spirit but it is not. They are separate parts of us. We have a body, a soul, and a spirit. Each one has its own function!

If the spirit is not seeking God or not searching to have a connection with God then u will be left out. You have to seek to understand God, it will not come to u naturally, it takes work to develop an understanding of Gods Word. It takes reading it, meditating on it, it takes prayer and it take dedication. But most of us will not invest the time to get the understanding it take to master Gods Words.

I  had these persons to tell me they do not believe in Gods Word because it was written by white men and they changed the words. So I asked him, well who words do u believe in? He said not the Bible, because the slave owners used the Bible to control the slaves. So I told him we are not responsible for believing wrong things. We are also not responsible if people use the Bible for the wrong reasons. We are also not responsible for being told lies. But what we are responsible for is digging out the truths in God’s Words. When we listen to people tell us thing in the Bible and we do not go to God and ask for understanding, and Biblical knowledge then we are responsible. We are responsible for not seeking the truth. Truth is only truth if we believe it, so do not let anybody tell you anything and then you do not go to God and ask for understanding. There are millions of lies being passed out as truths. The truth of any matter is never easy, the truth is the hardest thing to find. Lies are just lying around everywhere. But you have to dig and search for the truths. The Bible is the ultimate truth. So don’t let anybody tell you anything, because anything is not the truth most of the time.

Sekk the truth, God will give it to u

he lied from the beginning, and is still lying today.

Example: You might sit at home and somebody told u the sky was falling, and u sit there and say ok, you believe them. If u never get up out of your chair to look for yourself, then you are just too lazy to look for yourself, then you need to be lied to.

Example: Say for instance u are told all your life God is white.  As a child you believe that, because everywhere you look you see pictures of a white Jesus. So u never question that. But as you get older and began to search the Bible you be given an understanding that God is not a white man. Look at the history of the people in the Biblical times. Jesus was a carpenter so He worked, he walked everywhere He had to go, I’m sure the sun was out and it was hot. I have never seen anybody that worked in the sun and walked everywhere in the sun being or having white skin. They will develop very dark skin and it never lightens up again.

OK  go to scripture:

John’s Vision on Patmos Revelation1: 1:13-18
13and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. 14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; 15 His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; 16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

Daniel’s Vision of the Ancient of Days
9“I kept looking Until thrones were set up, And the Ancient of Days took His seat; His vesture was like white snow And the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was ablaze with flames, Its wheels were a burning fire. 10“A river of fire was flowing And coming out from before Him; Thousands upon thousands were attending Him, And myriads upon myriads were standing before Him; The court sat, And the books were opened.…

Daniel’s Vision of a Mighty Man
5I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was girded with a belt of pure gold of Uphaz. 6His body also was like beryl, his face had the appearance of lightning, his eyes were like flaming torches, his arms and feet like the gleam of polished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a tumult. 7Now I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, while the men who were with me did not see the vision; nevertheless, a great dread fell on them, and they ran away to hide themselves.…

Ezekiel 40:3
He took me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze; he was standing in the gateway with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand.

Liars always take out bits and pieces that serve their purposes, but it takes hard work to uncover the truths. Don’t let the devil sell you a lie. That is why the Bible says :

God’s Charges against Israel / Each of us   Hosea 5-7
5So you will stumble by day, And the prophet also will stumble with you by night; And I will destroy your mother. 6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. 7The more they multiplied, the more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame.…

Destroyed means you are taken out, you die, reduced to nothing…..

to reduce (an object) to useless fragments, a useless form, or remains, as by rending, burning, or dissolving; injure beyond repair or renewal; demolish; ruin; annihilate.

2.

to put an end to; extinguish.

3.

to kill; slay.

4.

to render ineffective or useless; nullify; neutralize; invalidate.

5.

to defeat completely

Example: You are in a class of some sort, and you don’t quite understand the information being presented, DON’T SIT THERE!!! RAISE YOUR HAND AND ASK A MILLION QUESTIONS UNTIL YOU GET IT!!!!! Don’t worry about who looks at you crazy, or who is taking deep breaths or the ones who are looking at you out the sides of their necks, forget them. ASK, ASK AND ASK!!!

Same way with God, he wants you to ASK, ASK, AND ASK UNTIL U UNDERSTAND HIM AND HIS WORD!!

Now days there is NO REASON FOR YOU NOT TO UNDERSTAND ANYTHING, especially the BIBLE. Once you began to understand the more your spirit will become tuned to God the Holy Spirit. We all have a spirit, and that spirit craves to be intimate with the Holy Spirit of God. When u began to seek after God and began to understand Him, your way of life changes. It seeks to please God, and to live more by His Word.

he is focused on you

you are his main focus

So it is best to seek for yourself, that has been a major problem for us, we let others instill their opinions upon us. And often opinions are the results of what one is thinking. Not what is actual being said, or what is being demonstrated. So in order for us not to fall into and believing someone else opinions, lets take a whole look for ourselves. Read it yourself. Understand it for yourself, and know it for yourself. If you do your research then nobody can lie to you when it concerns the Biblical Truths.

Ok so you say what do I mean?

Examples: Take a look the election candidates, some of us just vote for someone because our friend will be voting for that person. Or the Pastor told you to vote for them, or u heard it on the radio, or someone at your job will be voting for a certain person  or you get in a group to decide to vote for a person, but you really need to read upon the person to get an idea of what they think, or how they feel about issues that concern you. But its more easy for someone to tell you who to vote for than to do your own research. Ok u vote for(example) Hillary because Shelia Lee told you to. But, what if she got paid to tell you to vote for Hillary. So you vote for Hillary, but did u dig and see what she is about, or did u listen to someone else tell you who to vote for?

I tell you this, that is why the country is in the situation it is in today, we didn’t read the Bible, and we did not research the person running for these public offices. We need knowledge, understanding and we need God to make godly decisions. I used to be like that but after trials in my life I’ve learned that everybody I would vote for do not have our best interest at heart, if they did we would not have so many, many black men, black husbands, black sons, black daughters, black mothers or black people in jails.

But after all is said and done, The best wisdom to have is the Wisdom from Gods Words.

WHEN NOTHINGS WORTH TRUSTING…

Who do you trust? What do you trust? How can you trust? So what’s next?

Can you trust yourself?

Can you trust your friends?

Can you trust family?

Can you trust people?

Can you trust anything?

We can trust Him

Trust has to start with a reliable source

What is trust? According to Oxford Dictionaries, “Trust is a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something: “relations have to be built on trust” ·

 Merriam Webster says, “trust is  to rely on or on the truth of ; to place confidence in someone or something ;to be confident
 So give me your definitions of Trust… send me your ans.
 According to Changing Minds, “Trust is both and emotional and logical act. Emotionally, it is where you expose your vulnerabilities to people, but believing they will not take advantage of your openness. Logically, it is where you have assessed the probabilities of gain and loss, calculating expected utility based on hard performance data, and concluded that the person in question will behave in a predictable manner. In practice, trust is a bit of both. I trust you because I have experienced your trustworthiness and because I have faith in human nature”.  changing minds trust, trusting  We feel trust. Emotions associated with trust include companionship, friendship, love, agreement, relaxation, comfort.
 So tell me what are your thoughts on trust?
How do you really feel about truth and trusting?
We can Trust God

Trust God with your worries, secrets,  your alls and everythings

 Sometimes I feel so uneasy about trusting others. Sometimes I can’t even trust myself to do exactly what I’m supposed to do. For example, I can’t trust myself to read my Bible sometimes. Sometimes I can’t trust my friends to tell me the truth about a thing I may ask them about. Sometimes I feel like I can’t trust my doctors.  Even because of the experiences I’ve had with the court systems I truly know I can’t trust them. My oldest son had a set of lawyers and God knows I could not trust them, some non trusts of people or things comes natural, and are warranted. Some people you just cannot trust and when I say trust I mean, trust them  to do the right things. If we look at the Political races, for President, you may find yourself, asking yourself who can I trust, and is there any trust among thieves? Most do not trust public officials, I don’t even want to discuss how money can influence trust lol! (a whole new topic)
BUT TRUST, you do not have to look very far to find a trust issue. Look right in your home, in your social circle, in your family circles,  in your neighborhoods, and the trust issue goes on …. But trust can be a big issue, when trusting may really matter.
Guess what? When u do not trust someone or something that can be a very miserable feeling, a bad feeling, a lonely feeling, a terrible feeling. I know some of you have never thought about it because you can trust everyone, lol! But on the serious side… everybody is not to be trusted and even if they could be trusted, there would still be issues. The issues are, you  never really know, for sure. Then think about the times when you really trusted someone and discovered that on their part, there was no trust.

These are some interesting articles that may help u understand ones feelings on trust.

So after thinking seriously about trust, what is your conclusion to the questions stated above? Well, there is one true answer to those questions:
Question: “What does the Bible say about trust?” ( Got Questions. Org)
Answer: The words translated “trust” in the Bible literally mean “a bold, confident, sure security or action based on that security.” Trust is not exactly the same as faith, which is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8-9). Rather, trusting is what we do because of the faith we have been given. Trusting is believing in the promises of God in all circumstances, even in those where the evidence seems to be to the contrary. Hebrews 11 talks about faith, which is accepting and believing the truth that God reveals about Himself, supremely in the person of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, the practical consequence of faith in God is trust, which we prove by living out our full acceptance of God’s promises day by day. Furthermore, it is by this trust that we are promised peace: “You will keep in peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you” (Isaiah 26:3).The classic verse regarding trust is Proverbs 3:5: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” This verse sums up the Bible’s teaching on trust. First, it is the Lord in whom we are to trust, not ourselves or our plans, and certainly not the world’s wisdom and devices. We trust in the Lord because He and He alone is truly trustworthy. His Word is trustworthy (Psalm 93:5; 111:7; Titus 1:9), His nature is faithful and true (Deuteronomy 7:9; Psalm 25:10; 145:13; 146:6), and His plans for us are perfect and purposeful (Isaiah 46:10; Jeremiah 29:11). Further, because of God’s nature, we are to trust Him with all our hearts, committing every aspect of our lives to Him in complete confidence. Finally, we are not in trust in ourselves because our understanding is temporal, finite, and tainted by our sin natures. Trusting in ourselves is like walking confidently across a rotten wooden bridge over a yawning chasm thousands of feet deep. Disaster inevitably follows.Trust in God is a feature of many of the psalms of David. There are 39 references to trust in the Psalms alone, whether referring to trusting in God and His Word, or to not trusting in riches or the things of this world. It is on the basis of this trust that David finds deliverance from all the evil he encounters. Many of David’s psalms describe situations when he was pursued by Saul and his army, as well as his other enemies, and always did the Lord come to his aid. One thing that can be noted about biblical trust is that it always engenders further trust in our God. The man of God never stops trusting in God completely. His faith may be knocked, He may stumble, or He may fall into the foulest of sins, but “though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand” (Psalm 37:24). The man of God knows that, though trials will beset in this life, his trust will not waiver because that trust is based on faith in the promises of God: the promise of eternal joy with the Lord and the promise of an inheritance that “can never perish, spoil and fade” (1 Peter 1:4).
Trust — Trust is believing that God always does what is right.  
 PEOPLE AND THINGS  who trusted  God-YAHWEH:
The Elements
Abel
Noah
Abram/Abraham
Joseph
Moses
Aaron
Balaam
Balaam’s donkey
Joshua
Rahab
Othniel
Ehud
Shamgar
Deborah
Gideon
 Tola
Jair
Jephthah
Samson
Ruth
Hannnah
Samuel
David
( I’ll stop here for now)
TRUST GOD

TRUST GOD

 But these were people/ things that trusted Yahweh.  So I say where should you put your trust? This is God I trust.
 Sometimes when it is very hard to trust people, the only choice that is evident, is God Our heavenly Father. He asked us to  Trust in Him with all of our hearts and lean not to our own understanding.
WE SHOULD TRUST HIM WHEN WE CANNOT TRUST NO ONE ELSE. DON’T WORRY IF U CANNOT SEE HIM, WITH THE NAKED EYE,  HE IS THERE. TALK TO HIM, TELL HIM, ASK HIM, BELIEVE HIM, TRUST HIM, WHEN YOU DO NOT HAVE ANYONE TO TRUST. U CAN TRUST HIM. YOU CAN BE TOLD THAT A MILLION TIMES, BUT UNTIL U ARE PUT IN A POSITION WHERE YOU WILL HAVE TO TRUST HIM, THEN AND ONLY THEN CAN YOU LEARN TO TRUST HIM. As for the days and times we live in believe me that day will come sooner than later. You will need to genuinely trust someone. Have you ever wanted to tell something so bad until you felt like your heart was about to burst, if so you had better trust God, with your information because sometimes the person you trust probably will not be the person to trust. So get on your knees and tell it to God. You can truly trust Him.
