LOVE OR INFATUATION

Is this Love, is this love, love that I am feeling, Bob Marley asked in one of his songs; Maybe it’s lust or infatuation? Who knows these days. When I was growing up, we use to imagine what a person looks like under all those clothes, and guess the color underwear they have on, now it’s a style, fashion or the in-thing. Nothing left for the imagination; No wonder no one can differentiate between Love that’s genuine or infatuation; Is it a fling, a sex thing or love. I sure wish a lot of people would find that out, before they dive into a relationship, or marriage. Do you love the person or are you infatuated with them, is it for sex, money, security, or love.

When I look at the story of Adam and Eve, I realized, they had no choice in who their mate, wife, husband or partner was, they had to depend on God, well Adam had to. He did not have choices, fat, skinny, black, white, indian, or chinese, tall, short, long hair, short hair, rich, poor, none of those things was attached to love; all Adam needed was a help mate a companion, some one to relate to instead of himself, and the animals. So why did the purpose of love, marriage, friendship, companionship, change so drastically.

Allow me to tell you, we have taken God out of the equation, and replaced Him with our own personal agendas, greed, lust, and pride. It’s no longer we or us, it’s me and mine. That’s the reason we have so many divorces, people have allowed greed, and selfishness to run, and ruin their lives. We have allowed the devil to let sin control us, we have allowed sin to divide us, separate us, from each other, and God.

Lets not forget that God sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to bridge the gap between man and God, and each other, how do I know that? I’m glad you asked. God sent His son into the world not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved, check it out for yourself  (John 3:16-17, Romans 5:21, John 6:40,Romans 6:23), and many more scriptures to verify this. Friends for us to be on the right path to anything, we must be right with God, our Heavenly Father. Nothing will ever be right in our lives, until we make things right with God, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6, Isaiah 5:13) God does not wish for anyone to perish but that all should come to repentance( 2 Peter 3:9, 1 John 5:9-15). Jesus is the only way, truth, and the life, no one gets to God without going through Him (John 14:6,John 8:32,Romans 10:9). Listen if you don’t know Jesus, and the God who sent Him to save your life, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make in your entire life. Now if you know God and want to clean your life up and start fresh, you must also repent, which is confessing read Romans 10:9-13, then read Romans 12, and do as it says.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to delivery His message about His son Jesus Christ, and His will for us, I sincerely hope it blessed you as it did me,and it will move you to be obedient to Him, may He bless and keep you like only He alone can in Jesus name, amen.

OBEDIENCE OR SACRIFICE

Isn’t it amazing,that when we are supposed to consult with our Heavenly Father about certain things,that we don’t.Or,  when we are supposed to trust Him with everything that we don’t.Unfortunately it is when we get stuck in our trials,tribulations,aches,and pain; that’s when, we are seeking Him,praying to Him,and begging Him for help.The sad part about it is, we expect God  just to fix our mess instantaneously,when we didn’t call upon Him to begin with.Most of us can’t take it when God apply the belt of truth to our butts,I can just here God saying softly,My child did seek me first?Did you follow my instructions in the Holy Bible?Have you ever obey all my commandments?Have you acknowledge me or even trust me?Did you ever try to find out the plans I have for you? Lets look at Gods answers: It is written,”God has set before us a blessing ,and a curse..Blessings when you obey His commands,and curses when you don’t obey them”(Deuteronomy 11:26-28).  It is written,”To obey is better than sacrifice ( 1 Samuel 15:22).Now ,can you imagine all the blessings you sacrifice,just because of disobedience,and then inherit all these curses.,it’s time for a real reality check-up on yourself. Hold up, God ,is not finish yet, here is some more:It’s written,”Seek ye first the kingdom of God ,and His righteousness,and everything else will be added unto you(Matthew 6:33),let me tell you a secret; blessings add,and multiply;curses subtract,and divide;now you understand why there is so much hatred,dishonesty,sexual immorality,sickness,diseases,and a whole lot of other things.     Here is another,It is written,”Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;and lean not unto thine own understanding.In all thy ways acknowledge Him;and He shall direct your path”(Proverbs 3:5-6).Yes,the sin of this one man ,Adam,caused death to rule over us,but all who received Gods wonderful,gracious gift of righteousness will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man,Jesus Christ….Because one person disobeyed God,many people became sinners,but because one other person obeyed God,many people will be made right in Gods sight( Romans 5:12-21).Are you one of the right ones ,who is obeying God,the only way to God is through His gift,His son Jesus Christ(John 3:16-17;John 6:40,Romans 5:21,John 14:6),that’s Gods written proof,and more.If you don’t Jesus Christ,as your personal Lord and savior,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and just follow the instructions,it will be the best decision you ever make. I give God the glory,praise,honor,and thanks for using me to deliver His message to His people,I prau it blessed you as it did me,and may you walk according to His will,and way in Jesus Name ,amen.”HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS”(ROMANS 10:15)

KNOWLEDGE

“How many will have to suffer? How many will have to die?” Was a question Bob Marley asked in one of his songs.

Hosea says, “my people are destroyed, because of  lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). Knowledge, my friends is power, without it you are truly lost. A man of knowledge increases strength (Proverbs 24:5), true strength and power comes when we grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and savior,Jesus Christ, to who be the glory both now and forever (2 Peter 3:18). Now let me give you some knowledge from the Creator of the universe: God does not wish for anyone to perish, but that all should come to repentance, and the Lord is not slack concerning His promises (2 Peter 3:9); For God so love the world, that He gave His only begotten son (Jesus), that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)

Listen folks, Jesus came, took our sins, died, buried, and rose up three days after, so we could be saved, be triumphant, be victorious, what more can we ask for, He proved Himself. Now in a court of law, on earth, all you need is one eyewitness account, for the police, lawyers, judge, and jury to believe, and convict a person. Jesus had over five hundred witnesses (1 Corinthians 15:6), so why aren’t people believing and accepting this fact? Is it too good to be true? If we receive the witnesses of men, then the witnesses of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He hath testified of His son. He that believeth on the son of God hath the witness in himself; he that believeth not God hath made Him a liar, because he believeth not the record that God gave of His son (1 John 5:9-15).

How and why should we escape? If we neglect such a great salvation which at first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him, God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with diverse miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will (Hebrews 2:3-4). Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospered (1 John 1:2). If for whatever reason you don’t know Jesus Christ, or our Heavenly Father go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make in your entire life.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks be to God for using me to share His message, may His grace be with you, mercy, and peace from God the father, and from  the Lord Jesus Christ, the son of the Father, in truth and love, amen.
