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.

Why Fall When or if You Can Help It?

lady falls down.

She falls!

Let’s suppose you just tripped and fell on the floor, in front of a room full of people. You were really trying to impress them?   You fell, down, landed on your head; they laughed. You laughed back, only to keep from running and hiding. But to tell you the truth, you really felt like ____!

You tripped, you fall, you are so embarrassed, you thought about it, then you laughed back. You were laughing at yourself, but feeling like a fool on the inside.

Fell on my face, people laughed!

Man fall, people laughed!

Now suppose it went the other way; you tripped and fell in front of a crowd of people, they cried for you, you cried, and in stead or thinking about running away you let your shame be known. The ones watching you fall sincerely felt your pain, felt the anguish deep on the inside of the heart.  They sensed the true pain you felt. As a matter of fact everyone watching felt your pain. Everyone in the room just wanted to do something to make it right.

She fell, we cried together.

She fell, we cried together.

The real action in Falling…

Now look at the situations, think about the situations. Think about how you felt when you fell down, topple over, or slipped because some one else left something in your path. How would you feel if  someone  you knew fell.  What if you saw something in the pathway of another person and you left it there,  knowing that it could cause a serious slip or fall? Some falls make us laugh and some falls make us cry. But either way falling can hurt.  There can be fake falls which are usually part of an act, and there can be real falls. The ones I want to talk about are the real falls. The one that cannot be faked or planned. Some just happen, and some have been in the making. But either way, they are considered falls.  Any type of real fall can be a very big deal. I’ve seen commercials on television saying go to a doctor immediately, if you fall, there may be internal injuries. Those internal injuries can cause severe results even death!

According to,Barrett C. Miller Falls are consistently the leading cause of injury-producing accidents. They account for more than 1 million injuries each year in the United States.

Why are there so many falls? In part, it is because we fail to understand the complexity or the seriousness of same-surface slip-and-fall accidents. We assume that people fall because the floor is slick, because they are clumsy or careless, or because they step on a foreign object. These assumptions lead to investigations that are one-dimensional and to repeated accidents at the same location.

To understand causality,  and to determine responsibility for an accident, the investigator usually eliminates many possible causes. But people can fall for many reasons. Reasons can include the interaction of the walking surface with shoes; the environment, along with its distractions; and the physical and mental limitations of the victim.

Falls don’t “just happen,” . Often, more than one underlying cause or risk factor is often involved in a fall. A risk factor is something that increases a person’s risk or susceptibility to a medical problem or disease.

As the number of risk factors rises, so does the risk of falling. Many falls are associated with a person’s physical condition or a medical problem.

Falls can be deadly.

Falls can be devastating.

Falls are costly.

Falls are preventable.

What a Fall Might Mean: A fall could be a sign of a new medical problem that needs attention, such as an infection or a cardiovascular disorder. It could also suggest that a treatment for a chronic ailment is needed.

Biological risk factors

Behavioral risk factors

Environmental risk factors

Other risk factors include:
alcohol or substance use;
socioeconomic factors including poverty, overcrowded housing, sole parenthood, young maternal age;
underlying medical conditions, such as neurological, cardiac or other disabling conditions;
unsafe environments, particularly for those with poor balance and limited vision.

Prevention

Fall prevention strategies should be comprehensive and multifaceted. They should prioritize research and public health initiatives to further define the burden, explore variable risk factors and use effective prevention strategies. They should support policies that create safer environments and cut risk factors. They should promote engineering to remove the potential for falls, the training of health care providers on evidence-based prevention strategies; and the education of people and communities to build risk awareness.

Screening within living environments for risks for falls;
Clinical interventions to find risk factors, such as medication review and change, treatment of low blood pressure, Vitamin D and calcium supplementation, treatment of correctable visual impairment;
Home assessment and environmental change for those with known risk factors or a history of falling;
Prescription of proper assistive devices to discuss physical and sensory impairments;
Muscle strengthening and balance retraining prescribed by a trained health professional;
Community-based group involvement,  which may be used  as a prevention education and exercises or dynamic balance and strength training;
Use of hip protectors for those at risk of a hip fracture due to a fall.

One evening me and my daughter had an appointment downtown, and as we were walking on the sidewalk, I fell. Some people ran to help and others just stared. I was so embarrassed, and my daughter said it looked like I wanted to cry. To tell you the truth “I did want to cry. Felt like my whole being was shaken up, and I felt out of sync. I felt like I had just committed the unthinkable. I fell. I felt humiliated and disgust. After about 2 minutes I got up and brushed myself. If nobody has been around I probably would have just laid there. But I had to get up so I could be on my way.  See I know falls can be devastating. But since I was able to get up, I had too. To keep on my path, to finish what I started; we had an appointment.

The definition of a fall according to the MDS 3.0 has not changed but has been reworded and clarified. The following definition can be found in section J 1400 of the 3.0 RAI manual:  An unintentional change in position coming to rest on the ground, floor, or onto the next lower surface (e.g. onto a bed, chair or bedside mat). The fall may be witnessed, reported by a resident or an observer, or identified when the resident is found on the ground. Falls include any fall whether it occurred at home, out in the community, in an acute hospital, or in a nursing home. Falls are not a result of an overwhelming external force (e.g., a resident pushes another resident). An intercepted fall occurs when the resident would have fallen if he or she had not caught him or herself, or had not been intercepted by another person—this is still considered a fall.”   Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, January 2010,  Resident Assessment Instrument Manual, 3.0. American Medical Directors Association. 2003.Falls and Fall Risk: Clinical Practice Guidelines.

Now if I took the above paragraph and changed the word in certain spots here is what you get! Your Fall can be physical or spiritual!

The definition of a fall according to The Bible , Gods Word has not changed but has been reworded and changed by some. The following definition can be found in section 1 Timothy 4:1-2 Paul said, “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.”

 2 Timothy 4:3-4   For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

Hebrew 10:26-31 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”

Jeremiah 2:19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee.

Hosea 11:7  And my people are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most High, none at all would exalt him. Saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

Ezekiel 18:21-23  But if a wicked man turns away from all the sins he has committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, he will surely live; he will not die. None of the offenses he has committed will be remembered against him. Because of the righteous things he has done, he will live. Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Ezekiel 18:24  But if a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits sin and does the same detestable things the wicked man does, will he live?  None of the righteous things he has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness he is guilty of and because of the sins he has committed, he will die.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        2 Peter 2:15  They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Beor, who loved the wages of wickedness.                                                                                                                                                                                                    2 Peter 2:20-21 If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Any unintentional change in  your Christian position coming to rest on the ground of untrue word of others,  waddling in sin floor, or onto the next lower surface called  a hellish life (e.g. onto a sin, the death chair or bedside mat bowing down to satan). The fall may be witnessed, reported by a resident or an observer, or identified when the resident is found on the ground.  The fall can be,  and usually is witnessed by other Christians, your pastor  other church members or even sinners. Falls include any fall whether it occurred at home, out in the community, in an acute hospital, or in a nursing home.  Your fall may and can happen anywhere, but especially the  home church.  You leave it. Falls are not a result of an overwhelming external force (e.g., a resident pushes another resident). An intercepted fall occurs when the resident would have fallen if he or she had not caught him or herself, or had not been intercepted by another person—this is still considered a fall.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           When you give up on Christ or not trust in His Word, by not believing in anything He has said in His Word, then you open the doors to what is called a Fall!!!                                                                                                                                                                       most information gathered from the:Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, January 2010,Resident Assessment Instrument Manual, 3.0.                                                                                                                                                             Get into a church or in a position for you Christ-care and spiritual care guide can lead you to a standing position in Christ Jesus!  

So how many of us have fallen or falling right now? When I ask that question, I literally mean falling in your spiritual walk with God? A spiritual falling.  I used pictures of people falling so you may get the general idea. When a person falls away there may be reasons that they cannot explain. On the other hand there may be reasons they can explain. Just to make sure you may understand here are some reasons:

What does the Bible say about Christians in the last days “falling” from their faith and going back into the world?
Hebrews 6:6 describes someone who was in the process and completely left it.     Hebrews 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.          Hebrews 10:26 describes someone who has not only left the process but is very much against God. The key word in that verse is “willfully”.                                                                      Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remained no more sacrifice for sins.                                                              Hebrews 6:4-6 – It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.

Now: What exactly might a spiritual fall mean?  A spiritual fall is departing from God and His commands”. It means to stop honoring God and His mighty works. It means to let someone influence you to turn away from God. It means stop believing in God and His awesome power. It means falling back, to your old ways. It mean to give up on God. It means to let your thoughts and actions  influence you to sin against God. By demonstrating you are your own man and not a man or woman of God anymore. Demonstrating you willingness to act apart from God. All that means, to fall away in the spiritual sense, away from God.

 So why do so many of us FALL? The big question.

Because we have human nature in us and its there forever. For unless we fight it, to beat it into submission of obeying God commands. Most of us can’t or won’t fight the temptation that turns us away. Some of us don’t know how to fight. So we just quietly fall away. Some of us become tired, some weary, bored and just plain fed up. Then again some of us just will not submit to God. We would rather deny Him than to obey Him. Then again some of us believe so strongly in other people, so when they fall we fall too. Nonetheless some of us let others lead us away.  Some believe other people truths, and forget Gods truths. Some people let others convince them not believe in God. Then again people believe in a false god that others have told them about. Some people just don’t feel its worth it. And a lot of people just don’t care one way or another. On the other hand some once believed in God, and stopped. Some felt like the cost was just too much. Others feel like the world has so much more to offer and it does. Otherwise  some have fallen because the world called their name! Whatever the reason(s) may be; We Fall! But God made allowances for when we fall, so that we may never have to stay in the fall. We can get up and walk from the fall and thank God. With some falls you will need help getting up, but if it is a bad fall you may need to call 911. But either way you got up.  You are living to change the situation and  to examine reasons for the fall. Now some falls can cause you your life. But remember falls just don’t happen! The floor was wet, the sole of the shoe might have come a loose. Your leg or ankle may have given out or twisted, something may have blocked your view. Or maybe there was something left in the pathway and you tripped. But either way Fall don’t just happen. There is always a source. If you don’t believe me what do you ask your self or what do you say when you fall to the floor in front of lots of people, or even if you fall alone in a dark room. The first thins you say may be, I slipped, or I didn’t see the water spot, or my leg just twisted or you might say I forgot to tie my shoe string or it must have come a loose. But what ever, you will do or  say something.  Some people make jokes about their falls and some become angry because you felt like it was someone else fault you fell. The only time you can’t say or do something, is if you are knocked unconscious.

According to The Israel of God& Bro. Buie, specialist in Israelite History  and the Christian Life, The Downfall of Man

According to Allen Webster, people fall away for many reasons and causes.

According to Prince Handley, The Covering & False Teachers

falling leaves

leaves turn and fall

      The great fall of mankind, ask Adam or Eve, we’re still falling but, it is Jesus Christ who lifts us up. Nobody wants to fall!
