SPIRITUAL HIGH

I wish the sex addicts, junkies, crack-heads, alcoholics, and all those who like to get high, could get some of this. I mean this stuff takes me pass cloud nine, I am still elevated pass the penthouse, and the skies. Now I understand when David said,”such knowledge is too wonderful for me;It is high I can’t attain it”(Psalm 139:6). This kind of high, that I am talking about, money can’t buy it, and if you could, you wouldn’t have enough money to purchase it. Listen, it’s not sold in stores, but the book it’s in is sold in stores, and you have people that’s giving it away for free. But, let me get to the point, I got up this morning, and my confidence was shattered, I felt depressed, down, like an outcast, so I decided to pray, and God nudged me to go pick up the Bible, I obeyed, and He led me to Psalms 139. Wow! After I read it a couple of times, I realize that someone loves me, cares for me, looking out for me from before I was born, and more. Listen look at some of the things God reveals to me: I am fearfully, and wonderfully made, yes I know, I am handsome, but of course I am, because I am fearfully, and wonderfully made. He  knew me before I was born, before my mother, and father got together, what I would look like. He knows, when I sit down, or stand up, He knows what I am thinking before I formulate it into words, the path I take, my lying down, even my ways, He is acquainted with, where ever I go, He is there, north, south, east, and west. Isn’t it good to know without a shadow of a doubt that God loves you, and cares so much, He sent is only begotten son, called Jesus the Christ, the messiah, the promise, the way, the truth, the life, and He is the only way to God. Listen to me, it’s written in the Holy Bible, read it (John 3:16, John 14:6, Philippians 2:9-11).

The only book, that tells you about; past, present, and future things, that has prophesies, promises, truths, and a whole lot more. The Bible gives you, confidence (Proverbs 3:26, 1 John 3:21, 1 John 5:14), strength (Philippians 4:13, Psalms 18:2), love(John 15:13, Ephesians 3:19), hope (Colossians 1:27,Psalms 31:24), joy (Jude 24, Nehemiah 8:10, 2 John 12), peace (Philippians 4:7, John 16:33, Isaiah 26:3, James 3:18), that no person, place, or thing can give, so you might as well serve the God who made it all. If you, desire to have all of the gifts, and promises God has for you, If you desire this kind of high I am talking about, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions, trust me, you will get a rush, or on a high that only God can give. I give all the glory, praise, honor, and thanks to my Heavenly Father, for using me to spread His message, I pray it was a blessing to you, as it was to me, and you will follow his will and ways in the Mighty Name of Jesus, the Name above every other name (Philippians 2:9),amen.  

‘NOW THE GOD OF PEACE, THAT BROUGHT AGAIN FROM THE DEAD OUR LORD JESUS, THE GREAT SHEPHERD OF THE SHEEP, THROUGH THE BLOOD OF THE EVERLASTING COVENANT, MAKE YOU PERFECT IN EVERY GOOD WORK TO DO HIS WILL, WORKING IN YOU THAT WHICH IS WELL PLEASING IN HIS SIGHT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, TO WHOM BE GLORY FOR EVER AND EVERY, AMEN'(Hebrews 13:20-21)

CONDITIONAL LOVE

Conditional love is not genuine and will never last, because it’s founded on a stipulation; it’s based only on selfish desires. The truth is when you purchase someones love, in the long run it won’t be worth it, because it is conditional. That’s one of the reasons many marriages end in divorce, because most people now-a-days get married, for the wrong reasons. Marrying, because of the persons financial status, and not because they are compatible to you is dead wrong.

Most people will say there is nothing wrong with marrying someone with a high financial status, but when you examine the relationship, you will realize that the foundation of it is based on materialism and not love. Which means when certain conditions and/or wants are not met, then you are out hunting for the next victim who has the money or the thing that you want; when the money runs out, you run out with it. When the conditions of your love stops, then your love disappears.

Now, imagine if Gods love was conditional, where would we be? If Jesus’ love was conditional, would He had gone to the cross?  In Jeremiah 31:3(NL*) the Lord appeared unto Jeremiah, saying that “I have loved you with an everlasting love; with an unfailing love I have drawn you to myself” now that is reassuring. When you do not have the love of God in your heart as John 5:42 states, then your love will be conditional, and you can’t even love God or His son (Jesus Christ) who gave His life for you, who purchased your sins with His life, because of unconditional love.

People who love conditionally will turn against you and God in an instant, like Job’s wife in Job 2:9, who wanted Job to curse God and die, because her luxurious lifestyle suddenly  diminished or vanished. All this occurred because God wanted to prove to the devil, that Job’s love for Him was not conditional. Read it for yourself Job chapters 1-2.

Is your love for God conditional or unconditional ? Will you be able to pass the test like Job, if  satan accuses you? Will you declare like Job, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him” (Job 13:5).

How is your relationship with God? Did you accept His gift, of His only begotten son Jesus Christ ? Who or what are you waiting for? Why aren’t you seeking the Lord while He may be found,and calling on Him while He is near; let the wicked forsake his ways, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and let him return unto the Lord, and God will have mercy upon him, turn to God who will pardon you abundantly. Just remember God’s thoughts and ways are different from yours (Isaiah 55:6-9).

Because of God’s unconditional love for us, John 3:16 tells us, He sent Jesus to mend the relationship between God and us. Jesus said, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance”( Luke 5:32). Jesus also told us He is the way, the truth, and the life, no one goes to God without going through Him ( John 14 :6, Romans 3:23-24). Now that you have all this information, what are you waiting for? Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, follow the instructions, and accept Jesus today. Trust me you will not regret it.

All praise, glory, honor, and thanks go to the King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, the only wise God, for using me to minister to His people, may His grace, mercy, and peace be yours now and forever in Jesus’ name, amen.

SUFFERING FOR OUR GOOD

There was nothing beautiful or majestic about His appearance, nothing that would stimulate our desire for Him. He was despised and rejected by men, a humanitarian of sorrows, and acquainted with suffering and grief. We turned our backs on Him, and looked the other way when He went by, He was despised and we didn’t care. Yet it was our sins, griefs, and weaknesses He carried; it was our burdens, sorrows, problems that weighed Him down. He knew no sin, but we in ignorance, and stupidity thought it was his own sins, that He was getting punished for, by God.

But He was wounded and crushed for our sins, He was bruised, and beaten for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him; and by His stripes we are healed. Now in the latter days, we are like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way: your own denominations, your own doctrines, your own philosophy, your own religion, your own church, etc. forgetting that there is one God,(the true and living God) and the Lord laid on Him the iniquities, guilt, and sins of us all. He was oppressed, and afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth, He was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and like a sheep before its shearers is silent, He did not open His mouth (Isaiah 53:2-7).

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor, because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone, this is an all-inclusive list: Jesus died for the Jews, Greeks, gentiles, whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Japanese, everyone. And it was only right that God, who made everything, and for whom everything was made, should bring all His children to glory, through the suffering of Jesus Christ, God made Jesus the perfect leader, fit enough to bring everyone into salvation, this includes all nationality, color, and creed, no one is left out (Hebrews 2:9-10). So there is no excuse, Christ suffered for the sins of the just, and unjust, that He might bring everyone to God, yes, He was put to death in the flesh, but, made alive by the spirit (1 Peter 3:18). God sent Jesus to make, and show us the way to Him, and guarantee us,everlasting life (John 3:16-17, John  14:6), now the choice is all yours.

Friends, He could have come down off the cross, and saved Himself, but He decided to die just to save us. If you don’t know God or Jesus, 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, and your life expectancy will change from damnation to infinity. He took our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes we are healed(1 Peter 2:24). 

I give my Heavenly Father, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out. I pray it edify(s) and blesses you as it did me, and that you will allow Him to lead, and guide you down the right path to do His will, in Jesus Name, amen.
