YOUR MINDSET

You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.{Isaiah 26:3}
IT’S TIME TO RENEW YOUR MIND.
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”.
[Romans 12:2]
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, 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 the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
[Philippians 2:1-11 ]
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I  do,  forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.{Philippians 3:13-15 }

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,[Colossians 3:1-1].

WRONG CHOICES

Have you ever make decisions in your life that you later regret, you just wish you could see the future, or read someones mind, even just a glimpse of the intents, contents, and desires of their hearts. But, would it have really made a difference, because sometimes,if not all the times we see the writing on the wall, or signs that this will not work, yet we ignore it, and do our own thing. Most of us spend all our lives trying to fix broken things, yet failing to realize that if God is not the glue that will hold it together, then you are wasting your time. However,if we just do as God suggest in Proverbs 3:5-8
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones”. Because He knows the hearts of people as Jeremiah 17:9-10 says,
“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the Lord , search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.

It’s amazing, how many times the devil leads us to think that our looks, money, or body will change a person, failing again to see that if God is not the catalyst for change, you might as well give up, because every opportunity the devil gets, he is going to shred it like paper.

The beauty about a child of God in situations like these,is that God promise never to leave or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5), and a whole lot more,but child of God; Listen, if you don’t know Gods promises how are you going to overcome the struggles,fights,trials,and tribulation that the enemy is throwing at you. How can you go to war without weapons,you can’t go in a boxing ring to fight without arms, so, how do you expect to defeat the devil without the word of God planted in you,without the Holy Spirit residing in you,without even accepting Gods gift of His son Jesus Christ,without living Holy and righteous,without presenting your body as a living sacrifice,holy and acceptable unto God,which is your reasonable service;and be not conformed to this world,but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,that you may prove what is that good,acceptable,and perfect will of God ( Romans 12:1-2). Now you tell me,how do you expect God to clean up your mess,your problem,your trials, if you are not serving Him? Does that, even make sence to you?Let me tell you something if you are not living right,having sex out of marriage,lying,stealing,cheating,etc.etc.you might as well stop praying;because it is written:”The effectual,fervent prayers of the righteous availed much” ( James 5:16).”For the eyes of the Lord, are over the righteous,and His ears are open unto their prayers”      ( 1 Peter 3:12).Well I am not going to belabor the point you got the message,God takes care of those who seek,love,and live for Him in all aspect of their lives. If for whatever reason you don’t know God or His only begotten son,Jesus Christ,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,then follow the instructions,it will be the best choice you ever make,drop me a note if you need help,connecting with the right people or getting help knowing Christ Jesus. I sincerely give God the glory,praise,honor,and thanks for using me to get His message to His children,I pray it bless you as it did me,and you will obey His will and ways or commands.

Counterfiet, Artificial, Fake

You have counterfeit bills, artificial flavor for food, fake Gucci bags,and phony people,etc. Now if you study the original you can tell the fake, counterfeit and artificial immediatly.It is the same with christians,a true-born again christian,should be able to recognised a fake immediately.

The Bible distinctly tells us to,’ Study to show ourselves approved unto God,a workman that needed not to be ashamed,rightly dividing the word of truth'(2 Timothy 2:15).

So why were so many people fooled or misled by this mans prediction,this just tells you how many people read the Bible,well let me give you the truth,it is written,’No man knows….not even the angels in heaven,when that day will come’,go read it for yourself ( Matthew 24:36;Matthew 25:13;Mark 13:32;Luke 21:34),these chapters, distinctly tells us no one knows…not even the angels,only God. Another reminder God does not lie,like men do,and He is not slack concerning His promises( Numbers 23:19;2 Peter 3:9).         This just proves that there are many fake, counterfeit, and artificial people,who claim to be christians out there,who aren’t genuine; who think that God is going to accept them ,because of one second act of repentance,then the next day you are back to the old you,scheming and creeping. Let me remind you that God knows your heart and thoughts. Just like the leopard who can’t change its spots so is the double-minded person who is unstable  in all their ways.Just a reminder, you can fool people,but you can’t fool God, you will get away with tricking me, your bishop, or pastor, but God is in a different league than us.Remember,Gods thoughts,and ways are not like ours,they are as far as the Heavens is from the Earth ( Isaiah 55 :8-9).Please people,know the truth,and the truth will make you free ( John 8:32);God sent Jesus to show us the way,tell us the truth,and give us everlasting life(John 3:16;John 14:6).Once you accept Jesus Christ sincerely,you receive the Holy spirits anointing,we are then  sealed,as one of Gods children,we are then led and guided by the spirit into all truth (John 16:13).Therefore,no counterfeit,artificial,or fake prophet should be able to deceive us.  The Bible says, ‘Let no man deceive you’  (1 John 3:7);Be not deceived God is not mocked,for whatever a man sows,he will reap ( Galatians 6:7).Lets not get weary in serving the Lord,He will come back and redeem us in His time.

If you don’t know the true,and living God ,nor His only begotten son Jesus Christ,who died for us,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,then follow the instructions,it will be the best decision you ever make. Remember ,the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing;please don’t be one of them,but unto us who are saved, it is the power of God (1 Corinthians 1:18). All glory,praise,honor,and thanks go to the God ,and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,who use me as His vessel to distribute this message,I pray it was a blessing to you,as it was to me.

SPIRITUAL VS CARNAL CHRISTIANS

Spiritual minded Christians versus the carnal minded Christian, they both claim to be Christians, but only one is going to Heaven. The carnal minded Christian has one foot in the church, and the other out, and the foot that’s out is on a wet and slippery road, that will slide them straight to hell.

They fail to realize that,

  • (1) If you love the world, you are an enemy of God (James 4:4).
  • (2) You can’t love the world, the things of the world, and love God (1 John 2:15-16).
  • (3) You can’t serve two masters, it’s impossible to serve them both (Matthew 6:24).
  • (4) A double-minded person is unstable (James 1:8).
  • (5)True Christians are not conformed to this world, but are transformed by the renewing of their minds (Romans 12:2).
  • (6) God says, He knows your works, that you are not hot, or cold, just lukewarm, and He has to spew you out (Revelation 3: 15-16).

It’s time to choose who you are going to serve (Luke 16:13). Now the spiritually minded Christians are so Holy, they get on your nerves, but it’s not wrong they are only following what Gods word says, ‘He chose us before the foundation of the world to be Holy, and without blame before Him, in love’ (Ephesians 1:4, Ephesians 5:27), and we have to be pure, because Our Father is pure (1 John 3:3). But we can’t be too spiritual minded that we are not earthly good, because we still have to show love and compassion like Jesus did; you still have to love your neighbor as yourself. We got saved from the world, so that we can tell someone how good Jesus is once they accept, believe, and trust Him.

Jesus socialized, with people, but He knew who to hang out with, and where to go and not to go. Jesus went to Zacchaeus’ house not just to eat, but to introduce him to salvation, which led to him repenting (Luke 19:5-10). As a believer you can’t be too spiritually minded that you are not earthly good. “See, then, that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil, wherefore be ye not unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:15-17). But the wisdom that is from above, is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. If you are comfortable around people who are doing wrong or living a lie, then you better put on the belt of truth, and examine your walk with God, because something is not right. Now if you do not know God or His Son Jesus, whom, He sent to save your soul, go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Trust me, it will be the best decision you ever make.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver this message. I pray it was a blessing to you as it was to me, and that you will follow Him, and do His will until He returns in Jesus Name, amen.

LETS BE REAL

I am just curious, would a twenty-four year old female, marry an ordinary eighty-four year old man?

What would the media, or society have to say about that? What would be your response, if your daughter or son brought someone home older than you, and say we are getting married?

Now don’t get me wrong, I take my hat off to Mr. Hefner, I could never walk in his shoes, and he is one of a kind. But, if Mr. Hefner was not most women’s dream, of the ideal man to have, or most men’s wish, to be like him, or if he was not  rich, and famous, would a twenty-four year old, marry an ordinary, eighty-four year old man.

Now, I am curious to know, If there are Christian men or women out there who would love to be in this position. Would you really sell your soul? Just like that? Have you forgotten the scripture that says, “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things become new, and all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to Himself by Christ Jesus” ( 2 Corinthians 5:17-18). Then, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world, If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, that my friend, is not of God, but of the world (1 John 2:15-16). The Bible also tells us to, to flee from youthful lusts, but follow righteousness, faith, love, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart (2 Timothy 2:22). I can just imagine a lot of ladies his age are disgusted and crying what a shame, while the older gentlemen, his age saying, go Hef make us proud, we are old, but not cold. But, as Christians, we have to put away childish fantasies, and desires. The Bible tells us, “when we were children, we spoke as a child, understood as a child, thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things (1 Corinthians 13:11). I am just saying, where is the profit or benefit, if you gain the whole world, and lose your soul (Matthew 16:26).

Let’s be real, God sent His only begotten Son to save us; if you will accept Him and believe in Him (John 3:16-17; John 6:40). Listen people, Jesus is the only way to God (John 14:6). It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Hebrew 9:27-28).

Are you interested in knowing Him? Go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, trust me, it will be the best thing you ever do.

It is an honor and pleasure, for God to use me, to deliver this message to His people, I give Him all the glory, praise, honor, and thanks. I pray that it was a blessing to you as it was to me, and that it will lead, guide, and direct you to do His will, all this I ask in the Mighty Name of Jesus, amen.
