DECREASE, AND LET GOD INCREASE

It’s so sad when a person can’t realize that, if your actions are going to lead people down the wrong path, then you must decrease so God can increase;John the Baptist did it so that Jesus was glorified,and  all of John’s actions were honorable,nothing to hide or be ashamed about(John 3:30). When you realize that people are talking more about you, than the God you serve, then you have increased and  God is decreasing, now that’s a big problem, and God is definitely not pleased with that;Don’t allow the wrath of God to come down on you ,because of disobedience(Ephesians 5:6),it will get worse before it gets better;Present your bodies to God,Holy and acceptable,that’s your reasonable service(Romans 12:1-2).

When you can’t see that you have crossed the line, and overstepped your boundaries, between the things and people of God then you are going down the wrong path. Because of greed, loss of title, loss of fame and fortune you are willing to sacrifice the souls, and lives of God’s children to sooth your ego and pride, then it’s wrong, and your supporters are blind, because they now turn from following God to following you. They that followeth vain persons is void of understanding(Proverbs 12: 11);Jesus said,’My sheep hears my voice,and I know them,and they follow me'( John 10:27).Listen people,be careful who you are following,the apostle paul,told the corinthian church,to follow him ,as he follow Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1),open your eyes,it’s not time to play games,and not be sure if you are Heaven bound or hell;God wants a glorious church,not having spot,or wrinkle,or any such thing;but it should be Holy and without blemish(Ephesians 5:27).

Listen, we are in the last days,where scoffers,are walking after their own lusts(2 Peter 3:2); God’s people don’t need no unnecessary distractions, to take our eyes off the prize, of the High calling of Jesus Christ(Philippians 3:14). We need to be watching and praying(Mark 14:38, Luke 21:36),instead of focusing on the troubles, and mess of this world,see then that ye walk circumspectly,not as fools but as wise,redeeming the time ,because the days are evil;wherefore be not unwise,but understand  what the will of the Lord is(Ephesians 5:15-17). When you refuse to decrease so God can increase, it shows that you are of the world, and an enemy of God, because you are looking at your losses, position, prestige, and not God. When a person is willing to sacrifice the souls of the people, which should be their primary concern, instead of bruised egos, then that’s a problem;The Bible says,Love not the world,nor its things,if you do, then Gods love is not in you,because in the world is the lust of the flesh,the eyes,and the pride of life(1 John 2:15-16).

 In life there is a limit to how far you can go without God, some people are successful, because someone in their past generation prayed for something, and the blessings materialized on them, because God is faithful and true to His promises, but when you misappropriate His blessings, to serve the devil, the calamity, and punishment is severe. So children of God please stop following man and follow God(Ephesians 5:1), He sent His only begotten Son to save us(John 3:16-17), because man could not do it, so lets read the Bible and seek Godly guidance, He will see you through.

If you don’t know the true and living God, or His son, Jesus Christ(John 3:16-17), then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. I don’t know who this message is for, but to God be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to write it. It is not bashing, it is truth.

STOP PEDDLING GODS WORD

It really disturbs me to see how many people out there are peddling, selling, or prostituting God’s word for profit, when salvation is free. God sent, His only begotten Son Jesus, as payment for our sins, years ago. So my question is why are you peddling God’s word for financial gain?

2 Corinthians 2:17 tells us, let’s preach or teach the infallible word of God to save souls, not fill your pockets, to satisfy your own needs. I don’t mind donating to your ministry, but don’t tell me, how much to give, that’s God’s job. Trust me, if you are living in righteousness and you are walking with God like Enoch (Genesis 5:21-24) walked with Him, then God will let us know how much to donate to your ministry. Listen, it’s time to stop coaxing people to give $100 and $200 seed, just send the book, DVD or CD then allow God to manifest, and show Himself mighty. The God, I serve tells us in the Bible that, “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). Now, I must have a different Bible from all these folks, because the Jesus we follow tells us, “And whatever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in My name I will do it” ( John 14:13-14). So why are you pressuring the children of God? We are obedient, we throw our tithes, and offerings, and most of us go the extra mile, and give more. So, what is the problem? Put on the belt of truth, and ask yourself, is personal fame and gain more important than God’s word? Is your request for donations more important than saving souls? Has your faith and trust in God deteriorated so low that you resort to selling His word for profit. Be careful, you don’t want to tell God, how many times you preach, and teach in His name, and He reply, “I NEVER KNEW YOU.”

We better start putting on the belt of truth, it’s better to hurt now, than burn later. We can’t love the things of this world, and love God (James 4:4), we can enjoy them, but not love it to a point it consumes and controls us. Let us decrease, so God can increase, and people can get saved. The only one who can save anyone is God, through Christ Jesus His Son. Do what God called you to do, and leave the rest to Him. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and everything else will be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

If you read this, and you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, 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.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to put His message out there. I pray it will allow someone to change their life, and tactics, and allow God to lead, guide, and direct them down the right path, in Jesus Name, amen.
