“PLEASE”… JESUS THE CHRIST is Saying!

So Easter has come and gone, so why would Jesus  be saying  “PLEASE …”? Take a guess.  We use the word please to be polite. But in this sense JESUS is saying ” PLEASE”  being used as A DECISION WORD. Like we as humans sometimes say please when we disapprove of something said in a conversation, or when we do not agree in general with something. For example: When confronted with something not pleasing to me I say Please in a way as if to hold back my attitude or temper. I know some of you know exactly what I am saying… lol! Or we say ” child please you better gone on… lol!  In other words “be gone.” So JESUS  is saying “be gone with the lies…” He’s saying PLEASE quit fooling ourselves, and others.

I waited to write this after Easter day because no one would have read it before Easter.

In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into beginning through Him, and not even one thing that was created came into being without Him. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men John 1:1-4

And undeniably great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, was justified in the Spirit, was seen by angels, was proclaimed among the Gentiles, was believed on in the world, was received up in glory. I Timothy 3:16

Christ Jesus Who although He existed in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but emptied Himself, and was made in the likeness of men, and took the form of a servant, and coming in the likeness of men.  And being found in appearance as a man,  He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even to death of the cross. Philippians 2:6-8

The next day John saw Jesus coming towards him, and said, “Behold! the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world!  John 1:29

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.” John 11:25

Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Truly , truly… before Abraham was born, I AM.”   John 8:58

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending”, says the Lord, Who is, and Who was, and Who is to  come… the Almighty”…. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last… even the one Who is living: for I was dead, and behold, I am alive into the ages of eternity. Amen. Revelation 1:8, 11, 18

This day Jesus was hung on a cross to save us was His  calling to be fulfilled to justify His being.  It was the most terrific and ultimate act of a spiritual battle for the lives of us. This battle many of us do not understand nor will some ever understand; this battle is spiritual and it is between Jesus the Christ, the Son of God the Savior of humankind, and satan we call him the devil, which is the  adversary of God and the destroyer of us; oh by the way satan hates us.  The battle between Jesus and satan started in Heaven and trickled down to earth. It went down to the Garden of Eden and on to Jerusalem.  But the battle is for control of the world and the people in it. This is a heated battle, a vicious battle, a brutal battle, a battle to the death.  It’s the between the power of God vs. the power of satan. The Advocate – Jesus vs. the adversary. Loving vs. hating. Good vs. Evil. Humility vs. Pride. Compassion vs. Brutality. Righteousness vs. sin. Forgiveness vs. condemnation.

Everything evil, and its unseen forces are all standing against one man, Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God. This battle is a major, major, major fight. This fight is to make sure we are saved, from a burning hell fire, from the eternal death. We make light of this battle, because we do not know enough about it. Therefore, because we don’t know much about it,  we tend to take it for granted; or better yet deny its existence. However, this battle caused Jesus to have to come down from His home and deal with all the destruction that was taking place here on earth.

Information on the Origin of the Battle: Before You can understand you need to know something about the Battle.   New King James Version (NKJV)

Ezekiel 28:12-19   

12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God: Revelation 12:7-10

“You were the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God;                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Every precious stone was your covering:
The sardius, topaz, and diamond,
Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.

14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created,
Till iniquity was found in you.

16 “By the abundance of your trading
You became filled with violence within,
And you sinned;
Therefore I cast you as a profane thing
Out of the mountain of God;
And I destroyed you, O covering cherub,
From the midst of the fiery stones.

17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor;
I cast you to the ground,
I laid you before kings,
That they might gaze at you.

18 “You defiled your sanctuaries
By the multitude of your iniquities,
By the iniquity of your trading;
Therefore I brought fire from your midst;
It devoured you,
And I turned you to ashes upon the earth
In the sight of all who saw you.
19 All who knew you among the people are astonished at you;
You have become a horror,
And shall be no more forever.

Isaiah 14:  12-17

12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.

16 “Those who see you will gaze at you,
And consider you, saying:
Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
Who shook kingdoms,
17 Who made the world as a wilderness
And destroyed its cities,
Who did not open the house of his prisoners?

Revelation 12: 7- 12

And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them!   Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.

 

Genesis 3: 1-5

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’”

Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.

Jesus is saying “I did not give my life to hang on a Cross for  a Easter, day, easter candy, easter dresses, easter suites, easter eggs, easter parties or an easter holiday. I hung on the Cross for You! Do not take a day and call it easter, which has no significant meaning for me. You can cut the celebrations and decorations because there is nothing glamorous about Me hanging on a Cross, being beaten until I could no longer stand on My own two feet. Nothing is cute about me being abused at the hand of sinners. The easter you celebrate is to please the sinner and the unsaved, but has nothing to do with Me at all. You have used my sacrifice to yourself and made it something quite comical. My death has nothing comical in it or about it at all. I died for you, do you know how my Father felt seeing His only son misused at the hands of sinners. Do you have any idea how I might have felt? No you do not. Sinners, and the unbelievers have taken this day to turn you all against Me. Ok, let’s say, or you may say “we celebrate this day because it is for the children”, ok, if you want to do something for the children, then TELL THEM THE TRUTH!!!! Tell them the truth early, the earlier the better, don’t let lies linger on.

Let me help you all: ALL of these days you celebrate were created by men, to stand for something that I went through, but men have no idea the damage they have caused. I suffered all of this  because of you all! If you want to celebrate something celebrate ME. Celebrate the Truth and why I came to earth, Celebrate MY Words and live by them. Do you have any idea at all….? Do You? Eggs do not represent ME,  new clothes do not represent ME, hunting eggs do not represent ME, dyed eggs do not represent ME, it represents what you want it to, which is all far from ME, and the true Crucifixion. How can I say this more plainly? There is nothing glamorous about Me telling  a evil world of people how to live. There was nothing exciting about me offending the establishment. There was nothing trendy about challenging a group of people set in their ways, and were completely sure they knew everything  about my life, before I Was.  There was no beauty in the assumption that I was  just a man or just a prophet. NOTHING, and I MEAN NOTHING!!!! But all that goes back to the Battle. The Battle for your Souls. Although I was born to take upon Me the sins of the world, I found no pleasure in doing so. I had to take this bitter cup upon my self to save you. But I pleaded with MY FATHER TO TAKE IT AWAY, TO CHANGE HIS MIND, BUT HE DID NOT. WHY? HAVE YOU EVER IMAGINED A LOVE SO STRONG? No. YOU CANNOT EVEN COMPREHEND A LOVE SO AMAZING. How can I say this? Look around, when you love something you do not destroy it, you will go out of your way to save it. HE did not take it away because I had to die for you, if I had not you would all be dead in sins and dead in life. Nothing would be right about the world and the people in it! NOTHING! There would be no one in Heaven but us and the angels, no people or human souls. BUT………

This Battle CAUSED ALL OF THIS, THE BATTLE – IS THE REASON WHY I CAME. I had to come. When My Father created you all, He also developed a special love for you. It it un-explainable to you because you would not understand it. He took pride in designing you, and it was stronger than the love a parent have, after seeing a baby being born for the first time. It has a bond stronger than the bond of a parent after holding a baby in its arms the very first time ever. Maybe you are getting the idea, but you cannot completely understand it, because My Fathers love is deeper, much deeper.

Lucifer, Satan, The Shining One, Angel of Light, he has many other names. He committed the very first  sin. He was created like us, and SO HE created sin, so sin is nothing new. Satan was the first one to do something wrong on top of creating sin, he bragged about it, probably laughing and saying smart remarks about what he had done. HE LIKED IT!!!  Then he told his buddies he was going to be like God, in fact he told them he was going to be better than God. Isaiah 14: 14-15    But, God made him better and gave him extra talents and gifts.  Ezekiel 28:12-18

Satan became prideful in himself.  He had become so prideful that he though himself to be better than God, his creator. He revolted, rebelled, protested against God, in other words he turned against God. He hated God! He became jealous and wanted everything God had and more. He could not defeat God by himself so he managed to get other angels to help him in his fight against God. They wanted to take over, and become the new bosses of Heaven. Can you imagine that? Think about it. The fight got ugly. A battle is small, but a war is huge. So a war was  started in heaven.  A war between good and evil, humble and pride, hate and love, wisdom and ignorance,  compassion and hard heartiness, being righteousness or being sinful. Having a godly mind or having a wrong mindset. This war was so bad it followed satan to the earth, because God became tired of playing with satan, so he expelled him from his homeland- Heaven,  and along with him was 1/3rd of his  demon buddies. He was relocated to the Earthly realm. Revelation 12:7-10

So since the earth became his new home, ask Eve, he decides and was determined to mess up everybody lives here.  God also gave him dominion over the earth, actually God just let him control earth until his time was up forever. When I say control I mean the minds of men. But God only let satan think he was in control, because satan really has o get God’s permission to bother us.

Everything was God’s from the beginning and it will be in the end.  Satan is also the prince of the air. Ephesians 2:2

There is a war in Heaven, Michael and his angels  are in a war with the dragon , they are fighting  with satan  and his angels, over who will have control of the earth. This war has come over into the earth, its spiritual. It is spiritual to us because we cannot see it with the naked eye but we can see and feel the effects it has caused upon the earth. The reason it is spiritual is because we cannot see into the heavenly places with the naked eyes.  This war is spiritual in nature, but is felt in reality.

There is a 1st heaven which surrounds the earth, called the environment.  The 2nd heaven which is the atmosphere or space where the astronauts travel, where they can see stars and planets.  That is where the angels hang out. And the 3rd heaven is the Home of God/Jesus Christ.  That is where God handles all His business.  So! Everything that has aligned itself against God is and has to be of satan. But everything that is standing  and living for Jesus and His Word is of God. There is no in between. You are for God and against satanic influences or you are for  satan and working against  God and godly  principles.

Back to satan when he caused  Adam and Eve to sin, he gained a temporary victory.  Then Cain their son messed up and killed his brother. Satan just messed up everything for a time. After all  that,   the offspring of the first family just carried the sin on down through the family line. The sins were so great and steady piling up, becoming greater and greater, but the whole time   while God was watching  he was giving them chance after chance to change and repent. Some did but the other 99% did not. So God sent the flood but saved Noah to get the family started over again. Satan had accomplished a lot, caused lots of lost souls, destruction in the people hearts and minds, turned their hearts away from God. But God beat him again. God destroyed sin once again. Satan was defeated. After the flood satan came back again. The waters of the flood was like being baptized, God baptized and sanitized the land from the filth satan caused men to do. It was such terrible sins. He washed away their sins by water. God cleaned up and cleaned out everything except 2 of each animals and Noah’s family, to start a new human race. Boy, satan   was  angry for sure and still is; now he’s  thinking up a new plan to try to defeat God. You would think by now satan should have figured it out that he will NEVER defeat God!!!  However,  for some reason humans have given satan the encouragement,  helped him with will power, and his ego to make him think that he can win this war against God.  But he has the push or the urge he needs from us. Why? Because we refuse to stop sinning and the more we sin the more power we give satan to make him think he can be God’s/ Jesus equal. How? Because of the hatred, anger, deceit,  lying, murdering, lusting, adultery, greed, the fornication, self desires, all that stuff that God considers SIN, we do gives satan more power. He works on our mind and thoughts first. Because of us he thinks he has proven to God some big point. Humans have helped satan. Some know this but millions upon millions of us don’t; because we think we do good, but in Jesus eyesight we have committed terrible sins, sins against Him and the Father.

Satan roams the earth 25 hours a day and we all know there is 24 hours to a complete day, at least that is what we use as guides for every 24 hours. That means we have no time out of his presence, satan is always there to bother us, even in our sleep.

Job 1:6- 8  NKJV   Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord and Satan also came among them. And the LORD said to Satan, ” From where do you come?” So Satan answered the LORD and said, “From GOING TO AND FRO on the earth,  and from walking BACK AND FOURTH on it.” Then the LORD said to Satan, ” have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth,  a blameless and upright man, one who fears GOD and shuns evil?”

 I Peter 5: 8-9  Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.

BUT GOD GAVE YOU A WAY TO ESCAPE HIM, OR AT LEAST A WAY OUT FROM UNDER THE RULE OF SATAN! IF WE CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT.

I Peter 5:9 RESIST HIM, BE STEADFAST IN FAITH!

Satan already know his final destination- Sheol, so guess what, he will have company and lots of it. Who? Many of us if we do not stop sinning and repent to God for forgiveness and cleansing. IT CAN BE VERY HARD FOR US TO UNDERSTAND HOW SATAN FUNCTIONS, and so many of us believe satan is not real. If we believed, it does not matter if we know it as a fact, but if we believe God is real, then we need to also believe satan is real. We do not have to visually see something to believe it real. God said he was real and that should be enough convincing to know he is real. So if the enemy satan  is real, then we need to be able to stand against him. God tells us how to do that.

 

So back to Easter,  Easter came about as a symbolic way to remember my death, and all the events that surrounded it. Instead of being truthful about it has been told to seem like a fairy tale. But come to my time period and experience it for yourself.  Lucifer, Satan, The Shining One, Angel of Light, he also has many other names; committed the very first  sin. He was created like us, but he created sin. So sin is nothing new. He created sin, he was the first one to do something wrong. Then on top of creating sin, he bragged about it, probably laughing and saying smart remarks about what he had done. HE LIKED IT!!!  Then he told his buddies he was going to be like God, as a matter of fact he told them he was going to be better than God. He even thought he was going to take over Heaven and be God. He wants our praises, he wants our worship and he wants our souls.

God sent His Son, Jesus the Christ to die for us, to conquer sin and do away with satan once and for all. Christ was bore to die 3 days for us. Jesus was promised to us long before he actually was born. Throughout the old testament his birth was foretold; His death was foretold also. See satan cannot predict your future, but he sure can make you think he can. He only knows that God has something great in store for us and he will do his best to keep us from it! But he sure could not keep Christ from being born. If he could have he would have. Why? Because he knew Jesus was about something  grand and great! He was bringing a gift to mankind. He was going to deliver a final blow to satan and his plans for mankind.  So  satan got very busy, satan knows he cannot ever defeat  Jesus Christ. Never as in infinity ever.  But  Jesus was arrested, had a trial,  and then ultimately crucified.  Jesus was innocent, He had never lied, murdered, lusted,  was no fornicator, never bared false witness, none of that stuff we are all so familiar with. HE WAS SINLESS. But  throughout HIS ministry HE was often treated unfairly. HE was cruelly executed by men who allowed satan to come into them. Satan used them, and they allowed him to. JESUS’ crucifixion could be considered the perfect example of  an unfair judicial practice.  Can you even imagine the shame and humiliation JESUS must have felt. But on the other hand, Jesus had to do it. HE HAD TO LET THE EVENTS HAPPEN, it was a mandatory action HE was in total agreement  letting this performance happen, just to benefit us. We are the one who actually benefited for HIS death on the Cross. He unselfishly gave himself up for us. We make light of the facts, and try to change Biblical history. But the truth of all of JESUS’ deeds and actions can never be hidden. Man has attempted to change history, Biblical history,  in  Matt 24:35  “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but MY words shall not pass away”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     All JESUS wants is for the TRUTH TO BE TOLD, and not lies.  Lots of people don’t understand Me nor MY Causes BECAUSE the TRUTH has been diluted. It’s not a game, it’s not a holiday. IT’S about the future of your lives and the live I lived. I LAY DOWN MY LIFE FOR THE SHEEP.MY FATHER LOVES ME, BECAUSE I LAY DOWN MY LIFE, THAT I MAY RECEIVED IT BACK AGAIN.NO ONE TOOK IT FROM ME, BUT I LAY IT DOWN OF MYSELF. I HAVE AUTHORITY TO LAY IT DOWN AND AUTHORITY TO RECEIVE IT BACK AGAIN. THIS COMMANDMENT I RECEIVE FROM MY FATHER                   I JOHN 10:15-18

MAN TOOK NOTHING FROM ME, I GAVE IT.  I DID THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHICH WAS TO GIVE MY LIFE AS A SACRIFICE FOR YOUR SINS. In Psalm 40: 6-8  “For this reason when He comes into the world. He says, Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but you have prepared a body for ME ( the human body Christ was given to come to earth). You did not delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin. Then said I, Lo, I come to do Your will, O GOD”..  Hebrew 10:5-7

Jesus was sad about having to leave, He had made friends and had lived on earth for 33 years. His heart was heavy but HE knew the time had come. If you could change places with Christ at the time, you could experience first hand the thoughts and feelings He must have felt. HIS heart was burdened for us. But… He took upon Himself everything that was wrong with society and us. His mercy and grace for us was what made HIM go through it. He endured all His sufferings in HIS body and in His flesh so that  He save us. His obedience to His Father, his willingness to obey saved us. There was nothing on the earth or in the earth that could take away our sins accept Jesus.  No more killing of animals as a way to atone for sin. Why do you think sin and the mention of sin in the Bible is such a big issue?  SIN WAS SO BAD THAT JESUS HAD TOO COME TO SAVE US. HE DIED FOR ALL OF US, BUT SOME OF US WILL NOT BE SAVED NO MATTER WHAT? WHY? BECAUSE WE DO NOT WANT TO BE. SIN IS ALL THINGS THAT HAVE COME UP AGAINST GOD AND HIS WORD.                                                         SIN IS IMPORTANT TO JESUS, BECAUSE IT DIVIDED US FROM HIM. HE DOES NOT WANT US TO BE SEPARATED FROM HIM. BUT SATAN SAW TO THAT, WHEN HE CAUSED THE SEPARATION OF ADAM AND EVE FROM GOD IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN. WE HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT EASTER IS ASSOCIATED WITH SIN.  WE CELEBRATE EASTER YEAR AFTER YEAR,  AND FORGET IT WAS BECAUSE OF YOUR SINS, SINS OF THE HUMANS.  I  WAS CRUCIFIED IN THE FIRST PLACE TO SAVE. IN HISTORY THE BLOOD OF GOATS, RAMS, BULLS COULD WASH AWAY YOUR SINS, THEY NO LONGER WASH AWAY SINS. THEY USED TO BE ABLE TO WASH AWAY SINS, BUT NOT ANY MORE! MAN CANNOT SAVE HIMSELF. One reason for that is people began to use animal sacrifices for evil purposes. So i had to do something different.

Why should it matter to you? God created the earth and everything in it to be a paradise, a lovely place, a peaceful place, a beautiful place, a place where no one or nothing would destroy it. A home to His creation, a place where He could dwell also, a clean beautiful place, A Holy place His kingdom on earth. But… but… but… satan came and messed it all up!!! Have u ever experiences a gathering of good friends, or a family gathering, everybody was happy and enjoying everything, until that one person or that one somebody showed up and just ruined everything … ok that is what satan did, he just ruined everything for everybody. he just messed up earth, and the joy and peace, harmony and love was gone.  He ruined it for all of us. So now we have to work with God to get all of that back.  Jesus had to come to restore everything we once had in common with God back to us again. If you are a true child of God you belong to Him, He owns us he paid a price for us. He gave His life for us.

 So Easter is not about eggs. Tell your children the truth now as children. Jesus is much more important than eggs, candy and new clothes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

JESUS also give us this important warning;  I Peter 5: 8-11

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

 Satan is a spiritual being that have poisoned the mind of men that have sided against God and the Bible. Don’t be fooled any more by lies humans have conjured up to fool you. Stop spreading and carrying on traditions that I have nothing to do with. Man say anything to sway your belief in ME, satan have gotten in men and convinced them to lie about ME and to lie on ME, But the thing that hurts me is YOU BELIEVE THE LIES. YOU BELIEVE THEM AND CHOOSE TO DENY ME!!

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

      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!
