BE DELIVERED from mental slavery

Mental slavery has been our biggest defeat for decades. The enemy has brainwashed us and dis-combobulated our minds with so much lies and deceit that we don’t know who to trust and believe.He has successfully planted doubt and fear into people’s minds that they are confused and destroyed because of a lack of knowledge. Just as it is written in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” There is the problem. We’ve stopped serving God and have eliminate Him out of our lives and now it’s affecting our children in a devastating fashion.

What did you really think would happen when you remove God out of schools and everything else? When you pass laws that are contrary to God’s words, plans, and will? It has gotten so bad that people in these latter days have strayed from Gods truth, His promises, and His word so much that we have invited perilous times on ourselves because the fear of God has escaped our logic, our thoughts, and our minds; whichever fits you best. What is it with today’s society, that when people are delivered from something or someone they behave or act like they are still in bondage.

Children of God, lets not be like the children of Israel who was freed physically but incarcerated in their minds. We must purge our minds and thoughts of everything that wants to keep us in sin. God sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to liberate us (John 3:16-17) and the good news is that He did. Folks no one else can deliver us from the devil and hell, except Jesus Christ. John 14:6 tells us He is the way, the truth, and the life and NO ONE goes to God except through Him. Whose report are you believing? Who do you trust? The creator or the created? God or the devil? Be delivered today!

Colossians 1:13 tells us, “He (God) has delivered (rescued) us from the power of darkness and conveyed (brought) us into the Kingdom of the son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.”

Because of this we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His (Gods) own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9). Come on children of God lets walk, talk, and act like we have been delivered.

And those people who have not been delivered or set free from the clutches of the enemy, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Let me assure you time is running out. Stop delaying and procrastinating, in earlier years only old folks pass away, now in the latter days, if you notice younger folks are dying before the old ones. The cycle has reversed. Parents are burying their children instead of children burying their parents, think about it. It is appointed unto men once to die after that it’s judgement (Hebrews 9:27). Make your appointment to go to heaven, it’s a one time deal, there is no other bargain.

All praises, glory, honor, and thanks go to God for using me in these last days to minister to His people. I pray that God will fill you with the knowledge of His will, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you will walk worthy of the Lord fully pleasing Him in Jesus Name, Amen.

DIVINE STANDARDS

Sin is disobedience against the divine will, and plans of God. Did you know that sin originated with the devil, or satan also know as lucifer, before he sinned (Isaiah 14:12-14). Because, he got kicked out of heaven, with no chance of ever returning, his sole purpose in life is to take as much people with him as possible, so he started with Adam and Eve (Romans 5:12; Genesis 3:1-7). Because of them, we are born sinful and shaped in iniquity (Psalm 51:5), that’s why it is written,”All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23); So the question is? Who are you living for? Lets put sin into perspective, it is the blatant disrespect and disobedience against God’s will, the absence of righteousness from a person’s life, and the worse is hating God and His only begotten son.

 The wage of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23); Now why would someone not accept God’s gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, John 14:6),it just does not make any sence. Why do you choose to follow someone, who is doomed, and on a downward destructive path,  yes we were born in it, but we don’t have to live or stay in it. Are people that blind, that they fail to realize, that everything that glistens is not gold, can’t they see, understand or comprehend that misery loves company, so don’t accompany the devil to hell. If you want to know or feel where the devil is taking you, just stick your finger in a fire, or take a trip to the beach when it is 100 degrees outside, or fire up the oven to the maximum temperature and climb in,or when a volcano erupts don’t run,allow the lava to burn you,and you will get a taste of hell.Now think about it? Is that where you want to spend eternity. This is how you know if you are following the devil and is destined for hell: When you love, and follow your sinful desires, sexual immorality, impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, participation in demonic activities, hostility, anger, jealousy, selfish ambition, envy, drunkenness, etc.(Galatians 5:19-21)

Now can you say without a shadow of a doubt that you are following God’s will, and not the devil’s, listen, lets change your status right now, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions for starters, then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you for the rest of your life, read, Romans 12 :1-2 as a motto for Godly living, find a church that shares your belief in God and His son Jesus Christ, then you are on your way. Trust me it will be the best thing you ever did. I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message to His people.

EXPIRATION DATE

Everything and everyone on this earth has an expiration date; unfortunately most of us don’t know it, act like it, or care about it. What would we do if we knew that our last day on earth is today? Would we think or act differently? Would we spend the rest of the time with God or the devil? What would you really do? It is appointed unto men once to die, and after that judgement (Hebrews 9:27). Most folks don’t like to think of death. Some think they will be back as something else. Why would anyone want to come back to sickness and diseases, hate and evil is incomprehensible.

Psalms 89:48 says, “What man can live and not see death? Can he deliver his life from the power of the grave?” That’s why, we should not fear those who kill the body, but cannot kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10:28), all this is proof that we all have an expiration date on this earth, whether you want to believe it or not. The question is: Where are you prepared to go?  Hell or Heaven? Up or down? Paradise or parch in the fire? The choice is yours, yes it’s time for a reality check. The day is coming when you will expire from this life. My assignment is to let you know that you have choices and the decision is all yours, no one is forcing you.

“For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night, for when they say, ‘peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they shall not escape; But you brethren are not in darkness, so that this day shall not overtake you as a thief. You are sons of the light and sons of the day; We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.”                                                          – 1 Thessalonians 5:1-10

The only way not to have an expiration date is to follow what Romans 10:9-13 says,”That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead thou shalt be saved.” Because Jesus is the only way, He is the truth, and the only One who can guarantee eternal life, He (Jesus) is also the only way to God (John 14:6). How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will (Hebrews 2:3-4). Just taste and see that the Lord is good; and blessed is the person that trusts in Him (Psalms 34:8).

Friends your expiration date does not have to expire in hell. Give yourself a chance at eternity. Just go to the top of this blog click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.Trust me it will be the best gift you ever receive from God. Just read it for yourself in John 3:16-17, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life…” which means no expiration date on your life. To know more about God and His son Jesus find a Bible believing church to attend,and read your Bible and pray daily,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you for the rest of your life.

And now all glory, praise, honor, and thanks to God for using me to minister to His children. The God who is able to keep you from stumbling, and who will bring you into His glorious presence innocent of sin, and with great joy; All glory to Him, who alone is God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes glory, majesty, power, and authority belong to Him, in the beginning, now, and forever. Amen.

WHO CAN’T HEAR WILL FEEL

Are we so consumed, tied down, and bottled down in our mess, that we can’t be blessed? Are we so devastated to the point, where we can’t hear God? I have come to realize that, it’s when the trials, tribulations, and problems hit us to the point of frustration, devastation, and procrastination, that’s normally when the truth hits us. Then we try to analyze where we went wrong, but for Christians the question is – Did we read God’s instructions? Did we follow them?
Or as Matthew 4:19 says,”And the cares of this world,and the deceitfulness of riches,and the lusts of other things enter in,choke the word,and it becomes unfruitful” .
Then here comes, would have, could have, should have; if only we would have read the Bible, we could have avoided this mess, and we should have acknowledge God first. Listen, there is no excuse, God gave us a manual, or G.P.S system called, The Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth, it is then our duty to seek and read the manual, and follow the instructions (Isaiah 34:16; 2 Timothy 2:15). Now the question is, did we read it before we act? Why didn’t we follow the instructions if we read it? Why are you depending on someone to read it, or interpret it for you? It is available in all languages, all sizes, and never runs out of supply; which means we can’t blame God when things go wrong. In the manual, it is written,”In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct thy path.” (Proverbs 3:6); It clearly states, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and whatever we need or desire, we will get it.” (Matthew 6:33). His word, the Bible, has all of God’s promises, rules, regulations, and everything pertaining to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is available to everyone. God does not care about your color, creed, or nationality, He does not care what size you are, or how pretty you are, your money or education is of no significance to God, His word and promises is for everyone, from birth until physical death. Some of us who are made after His image and likeness are so ungrateful and despicable, that we would sacrifice, God’s love, His trust, His mercies, His grace, and goodness for what?  Just for limited gratification that is unsatisfying, and leaves us broke, miserable and disgusted, and sadly enough most of us don’t realize that we jeopardize and compromise our relationship with God, family, and friends for what? Come on, taste and see that the Lord is good and gracious (Psalm 34:8; 1 Peter 2:3). Blessed are you if you hunger and thirst after righteousness (Matthew 5:6; Luke 6:21). For God so loved us, He gave us His only begotten Son (John 3:16-17).

Read it then tell me? How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation, which at the first was 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). Listen, the only way to God is through His Son Jesus Christ (John 14:6).

Are you interested? Do you want to know God and His Son Jesus, who died for your sins? Then go quickly to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do. Then allow the Holy Spirit to lead,guide,and direct you for the rest of your life.The devil is mad but God is glad; The angels in Heaven are rejoicing and so am I. All glory, praise, honor and thanks be to the God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for using me to deliver His message to His children.

STOP IT,NOW

STOP! Don’t dial 1-800-feel bad,or start a pity party,start rejoicing.Rejoicing is a good antidote for stress,depression,cares,and the worries of this world,put some music on,then start  singing ,and dancing, it is safe and effective.Now ,it all depends on the kind of music you listen to,you see I am a gospel,or christian music person,I realize that when I glorify God,the praises go up ,and the blessing come down.Listen, to me folks you can’t listen to music ,that will make you feel worse,why would you want to listen to music ,that will let you think about the person who broke your heart or put you in a state of funk,and depression. That’s why you have to listen to some spiritual music, to uplift your soul,that is totally unrelated to your hurt,pain,and ache.

When ,I think of the love God has for me,and the goodness of Jesus Christ,who died for me,that automatically replaces,everyone and everything that hurt me.That’s when I start to rejoice ,sing, dance ,and shout for joy.Sometimes, you have to encourage yourself in the Lord,that’s what King David did( 1 Samuel 30:6),when there is no one around,or you have people who just have nothing good to say,and just make you feel worse,then you have to step up to the plate ,and encourage yourself in the Lord.

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance,but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken (Proverbs 15:13);Many are the afflictions of the righteous,but the Lord delivered him out of them all ( Psalms 34:19);Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound;they shall walk, O Lord,in the light of thy countenance.In thy name shall they rejoice all the day,and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted ( Psalms 89:15-16).

The apostle paul tells us to,”Rejoice in the Lord always:and again I say, rejoice!”.. then he said,”Be anxious for nothing,but in everything by prayer,and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God;and the peace of God,which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts,and minds through Christ Jesus,….hold up don’t go anywhere it gets better,he said, Finally,brethren,whatsoever things are true, honest,just,pure,lovely,and of good report;if there be any virtue,or praise think on those things” (Philippians 4:4-8),now don’t you feel you feel a whole lot better,instead of calling 1-800-feel-bad, having a pity party,or crying a river to swim away,don’t allow the devil to laugh,do a reality check,you are a child of the most High God,Jesus gave us the victory,and the authority to tread on serpents,scorpions,and all the power of the enemy;and nothing shall by any means hurt you (luke 10:19-20) it’s  time to rejoice that our names are written in Heaven.Let the heart of them rejoice who seek the Lord( 1 Chronicle 16:10).

If you can’t rejoice ,or don’t know how to ? When everything is going right or wrong,let me introduce you to the God,and His only begotten son ,who can,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,then follow the instructions,in will be the best thing you ever did. I give God the glory,praise,honor,and thanks for using me to deliver His message to His people,I pray it blessed you as it did me,may the God of peace,love ,and joy be with you now and forever in Jesus Name ,amen.

CHRISTIANAIRE

You have billionaires and millionaires who have all the riches this world can offer. We as Christianaires have all the riches heaven has to offer. What I love about all this is that the millionaires and billionaires die physically and leave everything behind, but when the Christian dies a physical death they will get to go and enjoy their riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

The millionaire or billionaire has to buy or build their own houses, but Jesus went to prepare ours. It says in John 14:1-3, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me (Jesus); In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you, I(Jesus) go to prepare a place for you; And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there you will be also.”

Being a Christianaire is better than being a millionaire or billionaire because the Christianaire’s treasures, assets, or money is not upon this earth where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; it is layed up in heaven where it is untouchable (Matthew 6:19-21). Yes indeed, my friends we are in this world but not of this world, our heart, soul, mind and body is on heavenly things.

Proverbs 23:4-5 tells us not to labor to be rich, cease from our own wisdom, and stop setting our eyes upon perishable things, because riches make themselves wings and fly away like an eagle towards heaven. Then 1 Timothy 6:7 reminds us that we brought nothing into this world, and it’s a fact we can’t physically or otherwise take anything out. So now that you know this who do you think is better the Christianaire or the billionaire?

Who do you think has more riches? The person who serves the God of the universe or the person who serves the god of this world? Which do you prefer to have? Riches now and perish later or riches later and enjoy it forever?  The choice is always ours. When it comes to our life, either we live for Christ or die with the devil. Accept God’s special gift Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17) or perish.

If you are interested in accepting God’s special gift in order to live forever and enjoy the riches of eternity just go to the top of this blog.
