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.

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.

ROMANS 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, 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 ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

LOST LOVE

“It’s better to have love and lost, than never to have loved at all” just does not make any sence to me. True love never dies, true love is never lost, true love always puts a smile on your face, and jump-starts your heart, so why put it in the lost department? Then again it depends on what your definition of what love is.

Disappointments, heartaches, and heart breaks have allowed us to lose sight and the true meaning of love. Most people fail to realize that true love is not one-sided, half-sided, or wrong sided, true love is not blind, therefore you will not be blindsided. Can you imagine if God loved like people love,or worse, put us in the lost column, or said it is better that they loved me and lost than to not have loved me at all, or the reverse.

God never put love in the lost department so why should we, as a matter of fact He told us in Jeremiah 31:3″Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you.” Those words make me feel special, make me feel loved, love that is sweeter than the honeycomb, no human being can’t give you that type of love, that type of love is never lost, and cannot die. God demonstrates true love to us by giving us His son (Jesus Christ).

John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son (Jesus Christ)…” This tells us that true love is giving, so what are you giving? God’s proof of His love for us is giving us Jesus Christ, Jesus’ proof of His love for us is giving His life on the cross. So I ask again what are you giving as proof of your love? Listen it’s simple, Romans 12:1 tells us to present our bodies as living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service, this is your chance to give back to God.

It is only when you give to Him in every aspect of your being, and fiber that you will experience true love, not only from Him only, but from everyone else. 1 John 4:19 tells us we should love Him because He first love us. Are you interested in experiencing this type of love from God and others? Then you must accept God’s gift of His son Jesus, and believe that God raised Him from the dead. All you have to do is go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. For further studies and information go to www.rivereofrevival.com.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to tell you of His undying love, that is never a lost. May His grace, mercy, and peace be yours now and forever in Jesus Name, Amen.

LOWER STANDARDS

Most of us at some point in our life lower our standards, dignity and morals to get ahead or to choose a mate. Most modernized churches have done so, which is contrary to the Bible. But no matter what, God never lowers His standards to accommodate us nor is He willing to accept less than the best from us. Most people think that because they go to church or are involved in church activities that they are, without a doubt, on their way to heaven.

But in Revelation 3: 16-17, God says this;

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked

this is a powerful statement from the Lord which tells us that He will never lower His standards. So I ask you this, why should He? Isn’t it low enough?

Do you really think that you can keep lying, committing fornication, cheating and stealing then end up in heaven because of a good deed you did? Galatians 5:19-21 tells us that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Ephesians 2:8-9 says,”For by grace we are saved through faith not of ourselves, it is the gift of God not of works lest anyone should boast.”

In order for us to meet God’s standards, we must comply to Romans 12:1-2, which tells us to present our bodies as living sacrifices; holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service and not to be conformed to this world but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. That we may prove what is that good, acceptable and the perfect will of God. Do you know what the penalty of sin is? The Bible states in Romans 6 :23 that,

“The wage of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

God’s gift is Jesus Christ, who is His only begotten son according to John 3:16. Would you like to know Jesus Christ who is the only way to God? if you are ready then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions. All praise, glory, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to get His message out to His people.

GOD IS WATCHING

Most people in the world don’t realize that God is watching and writing down everything that we do whether good or bad (2 Corinthians 5:10). If you lie, cheat and steal you may have others believing that you are not THAT person but consider this; You can not fool God. Realize that if you are not punished now than beyond  a shadow of a doubt you will be punished later because God records all events. 

What people who are not faithful to their wives or husbands, cheaters, should realize is that sooner or later your past actions come to haunt you.  All cheaters believe that they get away with their transgressions but then many things occur at once. A child, an innocent, that came into existence outside the marriage tells the world you were not faithful by just being alive. The cheater may unfortunately receive some type of venereal disease from a couple of hours of fun that will not be worth a trip to the clinic. People, realize that something you do always reveals the truth to your unsuspecting spouse and if you feel you got away with it, keep this in mind: God records everything and you will have to answer to Him later.

We must come to the realization that we can not hide anything from God because He is always watching. Remember He never slumbers or sleep ( Psalm 121:4). When I think about trying to hide things from God I remember a passage David said in Psalms 139: 7-10;

 “Where can I go from your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the utter most parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me and Your right hand shall hold me.”

Then, to the prophet Jeremiah, God says this;

“Am I a god who is only in one place? Do you think I cannot see what they are doing? Can anyone hide from Me? Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and earth? (New  Living Translation)” [Jeremiah 23:23-24]

 In Psalm 33:13 – 2, David reminds us that, “The Lord looks from heaven; and sees the whole human race, from His throne he observes all who live on the earth. He made their hearts so He understands everything they do…But the Lord watches over those who fear Him, those who rely on His unfailing love, He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine. We depend on the Lord alone to save us, only He can help us, protecting us like a shield. In Him our hearts rejoice for we are trusting in His Holy name.”

My friends, whether you are a Christian, a believer, or nothing at all remember God is watching and recording everything whether good, bad or indifferent. Lets live a life that’s pleasing and acceptable to God (Romans 12:1-2), so that the things that are recorded are good and we can hear him say well done thou good and faithful servant.

If for whatever reason you don’t know God or His son Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and savior then you need to do three things. Firstly go to the top of this blog, secondly click on to the salvation page and last but certainly not least follow the instructions. It will be a glorious day in heaven and the best decision you have ever made. All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God the father almighty. Lord, thank you for using me to write this message.

SPIRITUAL SUPER-DADDY

In life most people depend on a job, spouse, parents, a sugar daddy or sugar mommy to take care of them, which means they have to do something to keep the supplier of that money, food, clothes or shelter going. Some people do some unimaginable things, that is unethical, unrighteous, and plain disgusting, when you have to sell your soul to the devil, because of pride or greed then it’s unholy.

However, I must introduce you to my spiritual  super-daddy, who is also my sugar-daddy, my God, my redeemer, and my King who we all can depend on, trust, and who never leaves or forsake us. A sugar-daddy or mommy is not going to give you anything, if you are not connected to them in someway, or doing something that will merit the rewards; Our Heavenly Father is some what the same way, the big difference is we are not required to perform duties that is not Holy, acceptable, or reasonable to God;There is no father like Him,none that can be compared to Him,He is one of a kind.

Our Fathers requirements are simple: Delight yourself in the Lord,and He will give you the desires of your heart(Psalm 37:4); ask, seek, knock,and He will answer (Luke 11:9-10), but before you can do all that you must first accept God’s gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17), then confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the  dead then you will be saved (Romans 10:9); Here is another gift, ‘repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit’ (Acts 2:38).

Now that you established a relationship with God, He has taken on the role as your super daddy, spiritual daddy, and your sugar daddy, so for you to start receiving those good, and perfect gifts which only comes from above ( James 1:17); we must present our bodies as living sacrifice, Holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service (Romans 12:1). Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and everything will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33); but my God shall supply all of my needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19); and whatever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things which are pleasing to Him (1 John 3:22); 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); He told us to ask and it shall be given unto us, seek and we will find, knock and it will be open unto us (Luke 11:9-10).

Trusting in God has afforded us the privilege, confidence and trust in our spiritual super daddy, that come what may He is able to see us through, King David tells us that, he will trust  God until his calamities have ceased to exist (Psalm 57:1). Would you like to be able to say that too, then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the sweetest day of your life, and better as you seek Gods will .

Now to the King Eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks, for using me to minister to His people, now and forever, in Jesus Name, amen.

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.

YOUR ACTIONS ,SPEAKS

For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction; But as a child of the most High God, for every action there is a better reaction; for every evil there is good, for every wrong there is right, for every bad person there is a good person, for every unbeliever, there is a believer. As believers, and followers of Jesus Christ, we will always be criticized, scrutinized and ostracized, even insulted, the Bible tell us to be happy about it, because it means the spirit of God and His glory is upon us ( 1 Peter 4:14).

However, if you are under attack, suffering, and being criticized, because you cross the line, because you open the door and let the devil in, then there is nothing to rejoice or be happy about, because your actions did not glorified or magnified God.Whatever,is done in darkness or secret will come to light,it’s always revealed; So if you suffer because of your sinful deeds, for example: Murder, robbery, gossiping, homosexuality,etc, and things that does not depict as a child of God, then our Heavenly Fathers glory,love,and compassion is not seen,and if you wish to be His child,then repentance, and transformation should be your priority,before His only begotten son return. One thing for sure, the Christian will be judged first, of every good and bad things we did (Revelation 20:12; 1 Peter 4:17). Now listen to what Peter said, “If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly, and sinner appear”, ( 1 Peter 4:18), it’s imperative as a Christian to be Holy, because our Heavenly Father is Holy, to be pure, as He is pure, righteous, as  God is righteous. He sent Jesus to show us it’s possible. The Bible, tells us that, If we are suffering according to God’s will, we should commit ourselves sacrificially to our faithful Creator, and continue to do good (1 Peter 4:19); we should also present our bodies as living sacrifices Holy and acceptable unto God, which is our reasonable service…(Romans 12:1-2) Here is the best part, “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in Heaven….”(Matthew 5:11-12), of course it only applies if the accusation is false. So put on the belt of truth, and allow God our great physician to examine you, before it’s too late.

If you are an unbeliever, and need the true, and living God in your life, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the best day of your life. To God be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out to His people.
