SIN IS THE DEVIL’S WEAPON

Sin is the devils only means or ways of captivating and controlling our hearts, soul, mind, and body, as a matter of fact our whole life. It’s his weapon of mass destruction,he uses the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life (1 John 2:16) to manipulate our wants, needs, and desires ,which eventually end up costing us something and ultimately leads to death.

Sin is the devils manuscript, blueprint, or plans to wreck your life, home, marriage, friends, even your family. Which eventually leads you against God’s will and plans for your life. Sin my friends is like a sore or sickness, that when left un-treated will fester and get worse until it ultimately kills you physically or spiritually, sometimes both.

Sin originated with satan (Isaiah 14:12-14) and has many names:Transgression is the divine boundary between good and evil. Iniquity is an act inherently wrong. Trespasses is the intrusion of selfishness into the realm of divine authority (Ephesians 2:1). Therefore, God had to remind us that we all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God. However being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:23-24).

For the wages of sin is death (physically and spiritually), but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord (Romans 6:23). Yes my friends God’s remedy for sin is His ultimate gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ. All we are required to do is accept Jesus and believe that God has raised Him from the dead; then repent from all sins, turn away from sin, and just eradicate it out of your life and system.

It’s simple folks, rejecting Jesus Christ means you reject God, because Jesus is God’s gift to us for redemption of sins and eternal life (John 3:16). He is the only way, truth, and life ( John 14:6), and no one goes to God without going through Jesus. Are you interested in knowing Him?

All glory, praises, honor, and thanks go to God, for using me to deliver His message to His people, so that they will not perish because of lack of knowledge. May His grace, mercy, and peace be yours now and forever in Jesus Name, Amen.

THE SIGNS OF LIFE

Wrong way;do not enter;yield,what will be the consequences if we disobey these road signs?death,disfigurement,or paralysis,but sometimes it’s devastating.On the road of life there are highways and by-ways, so when we run out of gas we always stop by a gas station with a convenient store, not only to get gas but snacks.Now on the highway to heaven as Christians we have to stop by our convenient store called church to fill up with the word of God,and pick up a few scriptures to snack on; like yield not your body as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin, but yield it unto God (Romans 6:13).

Just like the convenient store all kinds and types of people go in for different reasons and different things, it’s the same way with church, all kinds of people go there for different reasons and different things. Why is it that when we are driving we obey the road signs to avoid an accident, but we refuse to obey God’s word, in order to avoid sinning, we submit to the road signs, but we can’t submit to God, and resist the devil so that he can flee(James 4:7).

To get our drivers license we have to read, and study the drivers manual to take a written test to get our permit to operate a motor vehicle, then we get a few practice lessons, before we take the road test. So why can’t we be as enthusiastic to read the Bible, and study to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman who is not ashamed, to rightly divide the word of truth( 2 Timothy 2:15). Then, when taking the road test we must obey all the road signs, and apply all the rules of the road that we learned in the drivers manual, in order to pass the test; which rewards us, or qualifies us to own and operate a motor vehicle.

 Now as Christians, to exercise and operate in our God-given gifts, anointing, and power we have to also obey, and follow the rules of the Bible. Wrong way;Wide roads lead to destruction; narrow roads leads to life(Matthew 7:13-14). We should always go down Jesus way, which turns into truth lane, and takes us onto the highway to life (John 14:6), or if you choose differently, you can take sin street straight down to death lane (Romans 6:23)which is the wrong way;read the signs.But you shall receive power,after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you,and you shall be witnesses unto me,both in Jerusalem, in all Judea,and in Samaria,and unto the uttermost part of the earth(Acts 1:8).

It’s reassuring to known that God  created a way for us to get to Him, through His only begotten son Jesus Christ. Do you know Him? If you are interested go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions. All praise, glory, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to get His word to His people.

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.

IS IT MATRIMONY OR MATCH-MY-MONEY

People used to get married for love, for rich or poor, sickness or health, better or for worse. Now people are preparing for the worse, so they sign a pre-nuptial agreement. My question is; if you are planning to be divorced then why get married. Furthermore, what are you protecting? When you die you can’t take anything with you. Let me see you sign a pre-nuptial agreement with death.

Then it hit me, what if God was supposed to sign a pre-nuptial agreement with us after we accept His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. If God was like man we would  all be going to hell. Just imagine after you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord, Savior and Redeemer, and you decided that you don’t love Him anymore so you decide not to follow Him, and go follow the devil. Pre-nuptial tells the other person whats mine is mine, failing to realize it’s all God’s.

According to the pre-nuptial agreement, all the privileges associated with Jesus, all the grace and mercies, the unlimited favors, the gift of eternal life, peace, joy and love will be lost to you. Can you imagine walking or existing without the Holy spirit? Yes you have to give that up too. I just can’t imagine walking around without God’s direction and guidance. Pre-nuptial agreement is not love, because the love of money is the root of all evil, which is found in ( 1 Timothy 6 :10 ). Pre-nuptial is all about money, so that type of marriage is of the devil, who has no love.

Can you imagine if God decided, because we don’t want to serve or obey Him or follow His wishes and commands, that He would stop the sun from shining, take away the oxygen we use to breathe, stop the earth from rotating, or worse don’t even bother to wake us up. Don’t tell me you really think you woke yourself up or got up on your own.

It is time for people to know the truth, and come to grips with reality, and accept the fact that there is a God, more superior and powerful than anyone you ever know or imagine. Sin separated us from the relationship we had with God; So He sent His only begotten son (Jesus Christ) as ransom or payment for our sins. This is written in John 3:16 which states, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believe should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Romans 6:23, tells us that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life. The gift of God is Jesus Christ, who is the only way to God, the only truth about God, and the only one who gives eternal life (John 14:6). This is not a joke and in these latter days there is no time to play around or wait. There is no escape when you neglect so great an offer of redemption (Hebrews 2:3). Many sorrows shall be to the wicked, but he who trust in the Lord, mercy shall surround him (Psalms 32:10).

What are you in the relationship for? Long-term or short-term. God wants a long-term relationship which leads to eternity. If you are interested in a relationship with God go to the top of this blog. Click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. It will be the best day of your life. All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to get His message to His people.

ABIDE IN HIS LOVE

Love is the most powerful weapon in the world, when we use it appropriately, and bestow it in its proper perspective. Love will always make you do right, because where love is hate cannot manifest its ugly self. True love is contagious, and if you allow it to fester it will spread like a wild-fire out of control, then it will cover a multitude of sins (Proverbs 10:12; 1 Peter 4:8), then  the world will be a better place. Love started with God, was manifested through Jesus(John 3:16), and was given to us.

In John 15:9 Jesus said, “As the father loved me, I also have loved you; abide in my love”. To abide is to stay or remain in His(Jesus) love, you must realize that when you step out of the boundaries of Gods love, that’s when you expose yourself to all manner of hurt and pain. Jesus did not leave it at that, He told us the only way to abide in His love is to keep His commandments, yes it is the same ones that was given to Moses in Exodus 20. No my friends it’s not impossible to do, Jesus came and showed us that it’s do-able and possible way of life.

When Jesus walked on this earth, He kept His Fathers (God) commandments and abide in His(Gods) love ( John 15:10). Now if we abide in Jesus’ love, and keep His commandment to love each other, then His joy will remain in us, and our joy will be full then this world will be a better place;the devil love it when we hate each other,hurt each other,and kill each other,because he gets the glory and your chances of  having everlasting life will be doomed ,because his is doomed;The wages of sin is death;but the gift of God is eternal life (Romans 6:23).

Did you accept Gods gift? Do you know who or what it is ? well John 3:16-17 tells us that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son (Jesus)that whosoever believeth on Him(Jesus),will not perish but have everlasting life,Jesus did not come to condemn us but to save us,put us back in right standing with God;Listen there is no other way,or access to God except through Jesus (John 14:6);you will not escape Gods wrath and judgement when you neglect His love,His gift of His son(Jesus),and the opportunity of salvation( Hebrews 2:3).

Now is the time and here is your chance,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,then follow the instructions,trust me it will be the best decision you ever make. All glory,praise,honor,and thanks be to God for enabling me to minister to His people,a message of hope,joy,love,and salvation,I pray that God will give the readers of His message spiritual wisdom, knowledge, understanding,and discernment now and forever in Jesus name ,amen.

WHAT’S IN THE GLASS

Most people don’t realize that we are born with an empty glass, and what we fill that glass with determines, our future or where we will end up in this life or the next. The sad thing about it is that some people blame their parents, friends or their environment for what is poured in their glass. But I was sent, to let you know that everyone is responsible for themselves, it is your choice, and decision as to what is poured into your glass. You can fill it with love or hate, good or bad, peace or war, now you must realize by this, that one thing is of God, and the other of the devil. One leads to eternal life, the other leads to hell.

You better believe there is a heaven, and a hell, if you don’t then I am afraid you have filled your glass with contaminated water, that if you keep drinking it, will lead to the destruction of your life. If you have filled your glass with the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, then the devil has you on a one way ticket to hell, so you better hop off, get off, jump off, whatever you have to do, you need to be off of that train or bus. “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord “Romans 6:23.

Stop filling up your glass with: sexual immorality, impurity, hatred, jealousy, drunkenness, violence, idolatry, murder, etc. folks who live like this will not inherit the Kingdom of God But if you fill your glass with the fruits of the spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self-control, etc, you will find that your life will be ten times better, and you are on your way to glory (Galatians 5:19-26).

For everyone shall bear his own burden….be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man sows that he will also reap, if you live only to satisfy your own sinful desires, you will harvest the consequences of sin, which is death, and destruction, but if you live to satisfy the spirit, you will reap everlasting life – Galatians 6:5-8.

Also know that the only way to God is through His son Jesus Christ (John 3:16 – 17, John 14:6) so if you don’t know God or His son go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to send His message out, I pray it bless’ you as it did me.

LOVE OR INFATUATION

Is this Love, is this love, love that I am feeling, Bob Marley asked in one of his songs; Maybe it’s lust or infatuation? Who knows these days. When I was growing up, we use to imagine what a person looks like under all those clothes, and guess the color underwear they have on, now it’s a style, fashion or the in-thing. Nothing left for the imagination; No wonder no one can differentiate between Love that’s genuine or infatuation; Is it a fling, a sex thing or love. I sure wish a lot of people would find that out, before they dive into a relationship, or marriage. Do you love the person or are you infatuated with them, is it for sex, money, security, or love.

When I look at the story of Adam and Eve, I realized, they had no choice in who their mate, wife, husband or partner was, they had to depend on God, well Adam had to. He did not have choices, fat, skinny, black, white, indian, or chinese, tall, short, long hair, short hair, rich, poor, none of those things was attached to love; all Adam needed was a help mate a companion, some one to relate to instead of himself, and the animals. So why did the purpose of love, marriage, friendship, companionship, change so drastically.

Allow me to tell you, we have taken God out of the equation, and replaced Him with our own personal agendas, greed, lust, and pride. It’s no longer we or us, it’s me and mine. That’s the reason we have so many divorces, people have allowed greed, and selfishness to run, and ruin their lives. We have allowed the devil to let sin control us, we have allowed sin to divide us, separate us, from each other, and God.

Lets not forget that God sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to bridge the gap between man and God, and each other, how do I know that? I’m glad you asked. God sent His son into the world not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved, check it out for yourself  (John 3:16-17, Romans 5:21, John 6:40,Romans 6:23), and many more scriptures to verify this. Friends for us to be on the right path to anything, we must be right with God, our Heavenly Father. Nothing will ever be right in our lives, until we make things right with God, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6, Isaiah 5:13) God does not wish for anyone to perish but that all should come to repentance( 2 Peter 3:9, 1 John 5:9-15). Jesus is the only way, truth, and the life, no one gets to God without going through Him (John 14:6,John 8:32,Romans 10:9). Listen if you don’t know Jesus, and the God who sent Him to save your life, 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 in your entire life. Now if you know God and want to clean your life up and start fresh, you must also repent, which is confessing read Romans 10:9-13, then read Romans 12, and do as it says.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to delivery His message about His son Jesus Christ, and His will for us, I sincerely hope it blessed you as it did me,and it will move you to be obedient to Him, may He bless and keep you like only He alone can in Jesus name, amen.
