IN MY SINS!

I was just sitting here thinking about some things in the world that I just don’t like….

Some things that just makes me sick, some things that just irks me, some things that some of us probably don’t even consider….

SIN MAKES ME SICK….And it should make you sick too…

The reason it makes me sick is because it is SIN…..

I hate sin because we all sin

I hate sin because it takes me down a path that I really would not like to travel

I hate it because it makes me and anybody else act up

It hurts

It destroys 

It deceives

It tears down

It steals

It stinks

It ruins

It kills

It harms

It fakes

It robs

It lies

It causes wars

It breaks up marriages

It is disease

It corrupts

It  hates

It causes racism

It  murders

It points fingers

It’s  big

It’s popular

So if sin is all of that, then why partake of  it?

Why do I commit it?

Why do I bathe in it?

Why do I shower in it?

Why do I dine with it?

Why do I live with it?

Why do I share my life with it?

Why do I hold a conversation with it?

Why do I let it master me and I not master it?

Why do I not fight it?

Why do I walk a path with it?

Why do I let it win?

Why do I let it boss me around?

Why do I get the upper hand?

Why do I let it entertain me?

Why do I entertain it?

Why My Sins?

I can only speak for myself! Your sin are not my sin, and my sin are not yours.

But I do know sin is sin!!

We have all sinned and are still sinning…

Will we stop tomorrow, or even today?

Because surely, only God knows! Yes He knows my thoughts, my desires, my weaknesses, my secrets, yes He knows!!!!! He knows my sins! He knows your sins!

When I was young I did things and hid the truth from my parents, but God knew. He still knows. 

Why do we let sin rule?

It rules our lives

It rules our decisions

It rules our emotions 

It rules our actions.

It rules us!

Why?

Because we let it!

Why does our sins dictate to us how we should act or react?I’M tired and I’m fighting it!!! It will no longer defeat me!! Sin has done enough damage in my life. But my Lord Yeshua has said “NO MORE”!!!  No More!  NO MORE!!!!!  No More my child!! You have got to Fight it! Stand sure-footed against it!

STOP LETTING SIN MAKE A FOOL OF US!!! That’s all sin does is make fools of us!!! Yeah we don’t see it, with the natural eye,  but  we are made fools. We really ought to be ashamed of ourselves,we’re foolish and giant embarrassment to Lore Yeshua our Creator and Father. You know some of us do see it with the natural eye.  For OUR LORD MESSIAH YESHUA  has given us enough sense to know when we are making fools of ourselves.

Every person knows when they are wrong in their ways, and if not it is because you refuse to see! You refuse to accept Our Lord Christ Yeshua as the ultimate authority. It is because you refuse to acknowledge  Christ The Lord is King and Ruler of All.

I sit today  and as I write this and ponder over our sinful nature. Some of us will die and leave this earth before Dec. 31, 2012 and never ask Lord Yeshua our Messiah to forgive us for all of our sins. Yes this is the closing out of another year. Have we asked Our Lord and Saviour to save us from ourselves. Have we asked Him to clean us up and heal us from sin, and our sinful nature? Have we asked Him to accept our repentant prayer? I ask myself to ask you to help us to heal us of sin. Lord we need you to prepare our hearts for a major clean up. Lord Yeshua we need you now today, right now. Yes tomorrow but today!!!! This very minute, this very second, if we live to see another hour, then we need you this hour Lord. We need you!!!!! Lord we need You !!!!!NOW!!! Right now!!!! Tomorrow may just be too late.

Lord I ask that we stop hating our neighbours, hating each other, stop trying to take some things that were not ours in the first place, Lord teach us how to love each other. Lord Yeshua teach us how to forgive, teach us how to repent, teach us how to stop hating our brothers and sisters because their skin is darker than theirs. Lord teach us how to love the poor and the sick, Lord teach us how to speak life and not death. Lord Yeshua please teach us how to praise you. Lord teach us how to please you! Lord stop the evil in us, and make us holy and righteous! Lord you are our Keeper, Lord Yeshua please keep us near your Cross. Lord we need you, even and especially the ones who think that they don’t need You. Lord have pity and mercy on the atheist  for you already said in your Word, when you asked “Your Father to forgive them for they know not what they do, when they hung you on the cross”! Father forgive us all for we really don’t know the things we do against you Father!!! We really don’t understand nor take into consideration how you feel, how we have hurt you, how we have once again made you ashame, just like we did when you destroyed the world with a flood. Lord help us see the light before it is too-oo late!!!! Because I know when you get so tired us that we have began to stink in your nostrils and you will act upon the land and all that inhabit it, that means us Lord Christ! Lord please forgive us. We think right is wrong and wrong is right. Forgive us! Lord Yeshua our Saviour have mercy upon us.

IN THE HOLY NAME OF CHRIST OUR LORD AND MESSIAH YESHUA

Amen!

James 4

Jas 4:1 From where do wars and fightings among you come? Is it not from this, from your lusts which war in your members?
Jas 4:2 You desire, and do not have. You murder, and are jealous, and cannot obtain. You fight and war, yet you have not because you ask not.
Jas 4:3 You ask and receive not, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your lusts.
Jas 4:4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever desires to be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
Jas 4:5 Do you think that the Scripture says in vain, The spirit that dwells in us yearns to envy?
Jas 4:6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says, God resists the proud, but He gives grace to the humble.
Jas 4:7 Therefore submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Jas 4:8 Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners; and purify your hearts, double-minded ones.
Jas 4:9 Be afflicted, and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to heaviness.
Jas 4:10 Be humbled before the Lord, and He will lift you up.
Jas 4:11 Do not speak against one another, brothers. He who speaks against his brother, and who judges his brother, speaks against the Law and judges the Law. But if you judge the Law, you are not a doer of the Law, but a judge.
Jas 4:12 There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you who judges another?
Jas 4:13 Come now, those saying, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city and spend a year there, and we will trade and will make a profit,
Jas 4:14 who do not know of the morrow. For what is your life? For it is a vapor, which appears for a little time, and then disappears.
Jas 4:15 Instead of you saying, If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.
Jas 4:16 But now you boast in your presumptions. All such boasting is evil.
Jas 4:17 Therefore to him who knows to do good, and does not do it, to him it is sin.

James 4:1-10

Through the Bible Day By Day- F.B.Meyer

“Draw Nigh to God”

Jam_4:1-10

The Apostle returns to “the jealousy and faction” of the previous chapter, Jam_3:14, and says that these evils are traceable to lust, that is, to inordinate desire. The restless inward war is the prolific parent of failure in speech and act. If we would pray more and better, we should soon find the inner fires dying down.
In Jam_4:5, r.v., margin, we learn that God has placed His Spirit within us, and that He yearns for complete control over our hearts. He can best overcome inordinate desire and teach us how to pray. God wants more of us. His love is insatiable in its yearning for every room and cupboard of our inner life, and He is ever wishful to give more grace.
There are four conditions which we must fulfill, if God is to have full possession:
1. We must be subject to the will of God, Jam_4:7;
2. We must draw nigh to God, Jam_4:8;
3. We must cleanse our hands and purify our hearts, Jam_4:8;
4. We must humble ourselves in His sight, Jam_4:10.
Then God will fill the soul, the sluice gates of which are open to Him.

James 4:11-17

Through the Bible Day By Day- F. B.Meyer

“If the Lord Will”

Jam_4:11-17

When we speak evil of another, we usurp the functions of the only lawgiver and judge. If that other is endeavoring to model his life by the law, to speak evil of him is to question not his action alone, but the law he is trying to observe. Let us turn the light in upon ourselves and be merciless in self-criticism, while merciful to all others. When you see another doing wrong, always ask yourself whether the same evil is not hiding in your own character. Do not speak of men, but to them, when their faults confront you.
We are prone to make plans without reference to God’s will. Life is so transient and brief that if we are to make the most of it, we should ask the divine Spirit to choose for and guide us. Our one endeavor must be to discover God’s will and do it. If we are not constantly saying, “If the Lord will,” the sentiment it expresses should always be uppermost with us. “Thy will be done” in me as in heaven!

I think about the poor and the WORD OF GOD says that “the poor shall be with us always”! And I believe the Words of God. So why do people hate the poor so much, or do they?  Deuteronomy 15:11, Mark 14:7,Matthew 26:11,John 12:8

I am poor and wish I was rich, but sometimes we miss opportunities to get wealth.But because I am poor financially, does not mean  like being poor. If everybody was rich I wonder what kind of world would this be? One that Christ wouldn’t like. But then if the Bible says the poor shall be with you always then does that me that some of us are destined to be poor? I wish I could have won the recently played power ball, but how can you win if you never buy a ticket? So I knew I would not win because I did not buy a ticket. But I sure wanted it. I do not think anyone wants to be poor. The rich says ” if they go to college you get wealth, others say most people want to be poor, some say the poor wait around for a hand-out, some even say they like being poor, some other say it is inherited, some say Poor people want to be poor, they say. Really? Some also said, RONALD REAGAN famously said, “We fought a war on poverty and poverty won.” With 46 million Americans — 15 percent of the population — now counted as poor, it’s tempting to think he may have been right.  John Stossel On The Poor: America’s Poor ‘Live Better Than Most Have Lived Through History’

The theory is that a poor person remains poor because the factors created by poverty cause poverty to persist, or even worsen. The things that make you poor, keep you poor

Newt Gingrich: Poor kids don’t work “unless it’s illegal”, “Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works,” the former House speaker said at a campaign event at the Nationwide Insurance offices. “So they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday. They have no habit of staying all day. They have no habit of ‘I do this and you give me cash,’ unless it’s illegal.”

ROMNEY: “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it,”

Others are saying:

More than half of Americans say dealing with the problems of poor and needy people should be a top priority for Congress, but many issues rank higher

Lower-Income Republicans Say Government Does Too Little for Poor People

So what do you say?

This is what God says: Scripture references on the POOR: Isaiah 3:5; Proverbs 14:31; 28:3, 6; 21:21; Zechariah 8:10; Job 5:15-16; Psalm 9:19; James 2:5-6; Luke 6:20-21, 24-25; Luke 1:53; Luke 4:18; Leviticus 19:9-10; Deuteronomy 15:7, 10-1; Psalm 82:3-4; Proverbs 29:7; Isaiah 58:6-7; Matthew 5:42; Luke 3:11; 1 John 3:17-18; Matthew 25:35, 40.

James 5:1-11

Jas 5:1 Come now, rich ones, weep and howl for your hardships coming on.
Jas 5:2 Your riches have rotted, and your clothes have become moth-eaten. 
Jas 5:3 Your gold and silver have corroded, and their poison will be a witness against you, and will eat your flesh as fire. You heaped treasure in the last days.
Jas 5:4 Behold, the hire of the laborers reaping your fields cry out, being kept back by you. And the cries of those who have reaped have entered into the ears of the Lord of hosts.
Jas 5:5 You have lived luxuriously on the earth, and lived wantonly. You have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
Jas 5:6 You have condemned and murdered the just; he does not resist you.
Jas 5:7 Therefore be patient, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth and has long patience for it, until he receives the early and the latter rain.
Jas 5:8 You also be patient, establish your hearts, for the coming of your Lord draws near.
Jas 5:9 Do not grudge against one another, brothers, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge stands before the door.
Jas 5:10 My brothers, take the prophets who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering ill, and of patience.
Jas 5:11 Behold, we count blessed those who endure. You have heard of the patience of Job, and you have seen the end of the Lord, that the Lord is full of pity and of tender mercy.
Jas 5:12 But before all things, my brothers, do not swear; neither by the heaven nor by the earth, nor any other oath. But let your yes be yes, and your no, no, lest you fall into condemnation.
Jas 5:13 Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing psalms.
Jas 5:14 Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
Jas 5:15 And the prayer of faith will cure the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up. And if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him.
Jas 5:16 Confess faults to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous one avails much.
Jas 5:17 Elijah was a man of like passion as we are. And he prayed earnestly that it might not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for the time of three years and six months.
Jas 5:18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth caused its fruit to sprout.
Jas 5:19 Brothers, if anyone among you err from the truth, and if anyone turns him back,
Jas 5:20 know that he who turns back the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

James 5:1-11

Patiently Await the Lord’s Coming

There are many among the rich who are using money as a sacred trust. Not against these does the Apostle utter his terrible anathemas, but against those who make money by oppression and hoard it for their selfish ends. Riches, which have not been gotten righteously, ever bring a curse with them; and the rust of unused or misused wealth eats not only into the metal but into the miser’s flesh. In the light of this passage, it is as great a wrong to hoard up for selfish ends money entrusted as a stewardship, as it is to obtain it unrighteously.
There is a sense in which the Lord is ever at hand and present. But He shall come again at the end of this age. Then all wrongs shall be righted and the oppressed avenged. Everything comes to him who can wait for it; do not judge the Lord by His unfinished work. Be patient till He unveils the perfected pattern in glory. Await the end of the Lord!

I guess I’ve written enough for tonight. Thanks for reading my blog!

May God and Lord Yeshua our Messiah bless and keep you true to His Word. May Our Lord Yeshua touch our hearts. Until I write again May Yeshua Keep you dear to His heart in Love! AMEN

The Hate Behind the Truth! Truth Hurts……So Sad!

Get Angry with me but don’t Sin!

I have tried not to write because sometimes my mouth, and thoughts when spoken, or written gets me into trouble. But I can’t help it!!! I just gotta speak my mind. When I speak or write for whatever reason, I release stress. I lost 2 good friends or at least I thought they were true friends. Because I cannot lie to them, nor will I lie. I hate to see people hurting.  False hopes are so easy to spread, and a lie is so easy to tell; so when I’m asked for my opinion, I will tell you the truth. But let me remind you my truths, are based on Biblical truths, or the Bible words and concepts But my words are, spoken in love. So I’ve lost friendships, kin-folkships and relationships. Sometimes I wish I could say what people wanted to hear, but I can’t. I’ve been told I need to forgive, but when you are told you need to forgive others for speaking the truth to them, then something is very wrong!!! Forgive what? For speaking the truth!!!! The Bible tells us to forgive our brothers when they have wronged you, yes forgiving someone for wrong is easy, if you believe God’s word. But what do you tell the one who has done the wrong?  So is it ok to do someone wrong, over and over? People would never have to be forgiven if they stop!!!!  But they won’t.  So speaking the truth about a wrong can get you hated. But it’s mandatory. So remember when you are wronged you should love it!  But remember you are the one wrong/guilty, for speaking truth about the wrongs.  I guess you should be silent. You are not forgiven for speaking the truth. But a person should be forgiven for committing wrong? There is something wrong here.

I hurt when people can’t accept the truth, because it is the truth. I hurt when people feel like you’ve wronged them, or when I speak the truth. I think speaking the truth in love, is  so much better and powerful, than truth without love. It’s even better than a lie, or trying to cover up one. Even in doing wrong to someone and the one(s) doing the wrong expects the receiver to like it!  Why do people expect you to love their wrongs, and lies?  I have always loved people, and have a desire to see people develop a love of truth and for truth. But as the old saying goes” the truth really hurts, and lies pinch”.  I really know exactly what that means. Some people get offended by the truth, and can hate your guts for being truthful. Tell a lie and you’ll have friends till the end.  Go along with a lie and you’ll be the hero.  So I guess that’s why I am a loner. But that’s ok.  Because as long as I speak the Bible, I believe it’s O.K.  God loves me, and that’s whom I’m really trying to please!

I remember when in college during class discussions, I would speak the truth, and with some teachers that didn’t settle so well, speaking the truth can hurt your grades, but thank God not all Teachers or Professors were offended.  But it’s ok. God loves the truth!!! I believe that! But I think most humans hate the truth. I am beginning to think when the truth is spoken,  and if the person that  is hearing it,  AND IF THE  heart is not right then truth can become very threatening, and perceived as a threat. Don’t get me wrong I have learned to bite my tongue lots of times. But when I know the truth can save a person or change their live I speak the truth. When a person has been hurt by a wrong I speak truth. Just think about the people, that have been  Assassinated for speaking the truth! So I guess being disliked is better than being Assassinated!

Just a few Examples:

Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929 – 1968) : United States

martin luther king

 Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865) : United States

abraham_lincoln

John F. Kennedy (1917 – 1963) : United States

John F. Kennedy

 Robert F. Kennedy    November 20, 1925 – June 6, 1968

File:Robert F. Kennedy 1964.jpeg

But I do realize we don’t all see the truth the same way, so don’t be offended if I chose the 4 examples. There are many more I wanted to use but it was hard finding the right pictures, and I really try hard not to offend others.

 I found this article by Sue St. Clair, Hub Pages:

Why is it often thought offensive when you speak the truth, why must we always soften it up somehow?

Dealing with strong reactions to hearing the truth is not a new problem. St. Paul dealt with this challenge in his days.

Dealing with strong reactions to hearing the truth is not a new problem. St. Paul dealt with this challenge in his days.

Paul in his letter to the Galatians dealt with the problem of people taking offense at hearing the truth. He posed the question, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” (Galatians 4:16). In his case, he had to deal with confronting the humanistic philosophies and heresies of that time. Many of the locals still wanted to engage in free for all sexuality and immoral conduct rather than depart from such lifestyles. At that time, it was common for Greek communities to harshly mistreat strangers to their cities and think they had done nothing wrong. Murder, adultery, immorality, prostitution and infanticide were common ways of dealing with problems. The locals did not want to give up their lifestyles then, nor did they want people to confront them with the truth about what they were doing. In their minds, there was nothing wrong with what they were doing. They believed that they were ‘good people’ since they were not breaking any local laws. The locals wanted their own version of spiritual truths rather than what Paul was presenting to them. They liked the idea that there were many ‘truths’. There were even popular local sects that believed that salvation was to be had through legalistic adherence to a specific lifestyle. Had Paul said that his truth was one of many ways, they would have liked him. The locals took offense at his presenting ‘the truth’ and calling into question all their immoral, legalistic and self serving ways. His question has echoed through the ages. People did not want to hear the truth then, and they do not want to hear truth in the 21st century.

There are many reasons why speaking the truth is offensive to some. First, there are some people that do not want to hear the truth. It is not just uncomfortable for them, it rocks their world. When they hear truth, it challenges their world view. Hearing the truth forces them to make a paradigm shift. It is often easier for them to attack the source of the information than to change their way of thinking. For them, hearing the truth means what they had believed is wrong. Since they often associate holding wrong ideas with being wrong as a person, they take the confrontations personally. When they take offense, it is in a personal manner. That is the reason that they launch into personal attacks. They try to make the person presenting the truth to hurt in a personal way. 

Another group takes offense at hearing the truth because ‘truth’ exposes lies they have held. When the lies or dark secrets are exposed, they feel vulnerable. When people hold onto lies for a long time, they become comfortable for them. Rather than grow from the experience, they attack and take offense when those lies are exposed. They do not want to face the possibility that what they had assumed as factual was actually a lie. These people feel naked and exposed. Being vulnerable like that is painful. In their efforts to hide their being exposed, they lash out angrily. When the errors of what thoughts they have believed or done, is exposed, they often feel dirty. Rather than work through that discomfort, it is easier to attack. By attacking the messenger, they no longer have to face the discomfort of their exposure.

The strong reaction that happens when people are exposed to the truth can be strong. In some cases, people are killed. Countless numbers of people have been killed because they told others the truth or began believing the truth. Persecution of truth tellers has a long history that includes the Inquisition, the holocaust, the programs of Russia, the cultural revolution of China, book burnings, genocides like happened in Armenia, clearings such as happened in Scotland, stoning of ‘unbelievers’, sanctioned hits by secret societies to silence wayward members and economic persecutions under Sharia are all forms of controlling or silencing those who speak the truth. These historic events show the strong and life threatening reaction that can occur when errors are exposed.

I have learned that the fastest way to get someone angry is to tell them the truth. For this reason, speaking the truth has to be done selectively. Some people can handle hearing truth, yet a greater majority can not. They have trouble hearing truth regarding spiritual matters, relationships, politics, science and history. In order to avoid dealing with truth in these areas, myths are often constructed to keep them safe. In some cases, they call their myths, ‘esoteric truths’, so that they feel special, as if they know something that others do not. This is the same dynamic involved in secret societies. They treat the secret as a special truth, like it was a special club that only a few people can be a part of.

Part of the problem lies in the situation that occurs when a truth is spoken. For there to be a truth, it means that those opposing it are ‘wrong’ and in ‘error’. No one wants to be wrong. This dynamic is compounded in contemporary society due to egalitarianism (the idea that everything and everyone are equal). The idea that all religions are equal and all people are equal sounds good. Such talk makes for pleasant sounding speeches, yet it lulls people into believing that everything is equal. To upset that balance by presenting truth and exposing that some group is wrong often termed ‘offensive’. Telling the truth means that you are daring to say that not all groups are equal and not all beliefs are equal. In contemporary society, taking such a stand is regarded as heresy to the religion of progressivism. That is why such persons are labeled as ‘haters’ or something stronger because they dare to upset the status quo.

My next question is – Why?

The Bible explains it so well. But how and why can  some Christians hate the truth?

So does that mean we really aren’t  Christians, or has satan fooled us so that we really think we are?  I read the news everyday, look at the news on TV, or the internet and observe what satan has done to us and our minds. He has fooled us and we graciously accept it- the lie. We accept lies so gracefully; and stand boldly in a lie. How? The Bible has an answer for that too if we read:

Titus 1:15   Everything is clean to those who are clean, but nothing is clean to those who are corrupt and unbelieving. Indeed, their very way of thinking and their consciences have been

corrupted.

1 Timothy 6:5     Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

 Romans 1:28      And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

2 Timothy 3:5    They will hold to an outward form of godliness but deny its power. Stay away from such people.

Matthew 24:12

Romans 1:21    For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him. Instead, their thoughts turned to worthless things, and their senseless hearts were darkened.

 Ephesians 4:29      Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

2 Thessalonians 2:11    And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:   

2 Timothy 3:8   Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

Ephesians 4:19     Who being past feeling have given themselves over to lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

Those who have cut off their hope and handed themselves over to lewdness and to the cultivation of every impurity in their lust.

  2 Peter 2:12        But these, like unreasoning animals, born as creatures of instinct to be captured and killed, reviling where they have no knowledge, will in the destruction of those creatures also be destroyed,

But these, like dumb animals, are by nature for the knife and destruction, as they slander those things which they do not understand and by their corruption they will be destroyed.

Ephesians 4:18   being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart;

Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

Psalm 14:1         A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

The evil one has said in his heart, “There is no God”. They are corrupted and they are defiled in their schemes and there is none who does good

Galatians 5:17     For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

For the flesh craves anything that opposes The Spirit and The Spirit craves whatever opposes the flesh, and they both are contrary one to another, lest you would be doing whatever you want.

2 Thessalonians 2:10   And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And in all the error of evil which is in the perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth in which they would have Life.

Romans 16:18      For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

For those who are such are not serving our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, but their own belly, and with sweet words and with blessings they deceive the hearts of the pure.

 Galatians 5:16    This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

But I say that you should be walking in The Spirit and the craving of the flesh you will never do.

Romans 7:14       For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

For we know that The Written Law is spiritual but I am carnal and I am sold to sin.

 Philippians 3:19       For their end is destruction, whose God is their belly and their glory is in their shame- these whose minds are in the dirt.

Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.

There are so many more. And from these scriptures I really began to understand! I will be so glad when we all learn to love!!!! The way God intended us too!

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!
