Some days, some things are so clear to me. Today is one of those days. And I see how the wicked goes down the wrong track. After a spiritual battle, in my own household, I saw some things that opened my eyes in other ways as well.
But I am relating this not to my household but to the unbeliever. Because as for me, and my house, we will serve the Lord. And I proclaim that.
AND IF IT SEEM EVIL UNTO YOU TO SERVE THE LORD, CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM YE WILL SERVE; WHETHER THE gods WHICH YOUR FATHERS SERVED THAT WERE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FLOOD, OR THE gods OF THE AMORITES, IN WHOSE LAND YE DWELL: BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD. JOSHUA 24:15. KJV.
But this is to the hater of God. The mocker, the one, who thinks they can put down another’s faith, and the one who dismisses truth about who God is. The one who makes jokes about scriptures. Calling some folks “Bible Thumpers.”
I have seen it so often in my life. I saw it as a little girl. My mother was a Christian. She went to go and baby sit for a lady and a man. That night this man came home, with his wife. He saw my mothers bible. He mocked her. Laughed at my mother. Called her filthy names, because she believed. He threw me and her out of their house, in the middle of the night. In the cold, in the darkness. And we had to walk. I don’t remember how we got home. I just know by the grace of God we did.
My mama, did not know the word, Gods word, like I know it now. She was persecuted. And it grieves me, when I see other Christians take it as well. Especially, when they don’t know truth to set them free. When they don’t know what God really says. When they don’t use their King James as swords. When they go silent. So I am sure it grieves my Lord too, when Christians don’t know KJV word.
Its so important to know Gods holy word. And again, I reiterate, King James holy word, that is holy not corrupted. See you cannot fight the devil with words that have been corrupted changed, added, to, or deleted. Because then they are no longer holy. And the devil knows that. So he deceives the world, with all of these fake bible versions, because the world is not obedient to even use holy word. Let alone Christians. I see it.
I understand. Today, I understand more clearly, than ever before.
MANY SHALL BE PURIFIED, AND MADE WHITE, AND TRIED; BUT THE WICKED SHALL DO WICKEDLY: AND NONE OF THE WICKED SHALL UNDERSTAND; BUT THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND. Daniel 12:10 KING JAMES.
How dare the wicked deny God. How dare they mock me, His servant. But yes Christ told us they would. Yes, I understand very clearly today. I fear God. And thats the best thing, I could ever do. But the wicked does not fear God.
THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE WICKED SAITH WITHIN MY HEART, THAT THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE HIS EYES. PSALMS 36:1 KJV.
See thats just it, and even among many Christians. They don’t fear God. And thats a lie from hell too, because if you don’t fear God, you are playing with your eternal soul. Yes I understand the fear of God. I understand who God is. I have read the Holy book, and He is not mocked. His wrath will be revealed, and yes it is very, very wicked, to deny God. And there will be a price to pay, for not grasping that Christ paid the price for you.
Here is a thought…..I don’t fear the devil. I fear God. Because if God is present, the devil will flee. They are not equals. No the devil is jealous, of who God is, and if you see that characteristic, in yourself. You do not serve God, but the devil.
SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD. RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU. JAMES 4:7 KJV.
So….How dare anybody tell me I serve a fable. How dare anybody tell me my God is not real! How dare they!
It gets me righteously indignant, and furious! Why? Because they don’t know what God has done for me. They don’t know that He came and set me free. When I was at the bottom of the barrel. When I was so lost, I could have died, and nobody would have cared for my soul. Nobody. How dare they mock, what God has done for me. They have not walked in my shoes. They don’t know. They just don’t know!
So when I try to share my faith, and I try to walk in love, and show them my Jesus. It grieves me, when they mock, when they laugh. It grieves me, even when past friends have told me, I just talk about myself. No I don’t talk about myself, I talk about what God did for me, so someone else can believe and see the truth. Its called a testimony. And we overcome the enemy, by the blood of the lamb, and the words of our testimony.
AND THEY OVERCOME him BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH. REVELATION 12:10 KJV.
When they even tell me, they feel sorry for me. Really? Don’t feel sorry for me! I just told this man, the same thing. Don’t feel sorry for me, because I serve, a mighty, good, and merciful God. But I had to see my own wicked ways. I had to see what Christ did on the cross for me. I told this man, he still had a choice. But he won’t understand, until he turns from his wicked ways, and sees what Christ did on that cross for him. And yes, repents. Or worse, when he stands before God, and realizes he had a chance, for salvation, but instead he decided to mock me, and my God.
So why does the wicked deny there is a God?
I will tell you why. Because it is the sin, that comes from hell itself, and blinds people.
So they don’t see, how filthy they are in their sins. They don’t see, that they are delusional, because they denied the truth, and God opened the spirit of delusion, for them to believe the lie, because they deny the truth. They don’t see that they call evil good, and good evil. And woe unto them! They don’t see because they have no true light in them. Because they choose to walk in darkness. Spiritual darkness. They actually have spiritual blinders on their eyes…..
It is the sin, that stops the truth, from setting them free. See, we all sin, we all come short of His glory. We do. We will have poor judgment. We will be in denial, until we totally open ourselves up to God, and His ways, His commandments. His love. And turn from the sin! Oh my, I learned the hard way. So how dare anybody mock my belief, and knowledge, to know that I know there is a God! How dare they!
How dare any of us, act like we are holier then thou, when it took so much for Christ to give at that cross. It shames me, to even think, that my sin’s, put him on the cross. But I am so grateful. You see, I was so lost. So broken, so misguided.
But I know more than ever, it is the sin, that separates us from God. Its the sin, that stops even our prayers from being answered. That turns into a curse!
Because we serve a Holy and mighty God, who will not compromise His standards for us, even though He loves us. We can stop our growth. By being disobedient, or compromising who God is. So don’t just obey God, love Him, and see who He is…it will be better for you.
PRAY FOR DELIVERANCE!
We hurt ourselves. When we allow sin, when we compromise His truth. But many do not see that. They will not be totally purified, until they turn from their wicked ways. Take the blinders off, repent, and serve God in body, mind, and soul. There is no compromising with God.
Compromising is sin.
All I know right now, is more than ever, I am more dedicated, to being a light that shines for Christ. I pray, He uses me. I pray, I am worthy though, to serve Him. I submit to God, I resist the devil, and he must flee. The only way, I know, is by being obedient to God. Trusting Him, loving Him. Taking every word of my King James bible to heart. Because it is there, that I hear His loving voice, that counsels me, directs me, corrects me, and shows me who He is. Loving the one who set me free. To see. By departing from sin, any kind of sin, so the devil will not deceive me.
I don’t want to be counted with the wicked. And any fool, that denies, God, is playing with their salvation. And that’s just dumb to me. Foolish, to play with your soul. To mock God and hell. That is wicked.
I think of some folks, on this earth, who have experienced hell, on earth, and they got away. Well, one can avoid hell as their eternal destination. Because if they choose wrong, they won’t be able to get away. If they just open their eyes.
They must though…See, their sin, repent to God, believe on the name of Jesus Christ. See who He is, for He is love. Live for Christ, because to live to the flesh, is hell, and that is what one will reap. By choosing to be wicked. By choosing evil, over good. By denying Christ, the truth, the way, and the life. By denying God, through, His holy begotten son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
UPON THE WICKED HE SHALL RAIN SNARES, FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, AND AN HORRIBLE TEMPEST: THIS SHALL BE THE PORTION OF THEIR CUP. PSALMS 11:6. KJV.
Oh hell is real! I just know, and understand more clearly, how we are the temples of the living God. That His holy spirit, cannot live and dwell in our spirits, if we allow any kind of sin friend. You just cannot compromise God, and expect holy results. You cannot.
And I guess, I am speaking to the luke warm Christian, who compromises. Plays with sin. A little here or there. Who is not totally committed who walks the line between the world, and God. But really making friends with the world, and that is enmity to God.
YE ADULTERERS AND ADULTERESSES, KNOW YE NOT THAT THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? WHOSOEVER THEREFORE WILL BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD. JAMES 4:4 King James.
BECAUSE THE CARNAL MIND IS ENMITY AGAINST GOD: FOR IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF GOD, NEITHER INDEED CAN BE. ROMANS 8:7. KJV.
You need Gods law, and if you go to a church that denies the law of God, run out of there. See the only law we are free from is the law of sin, and death, not Gods commandments. Read Romans 8:2 from a King James. See, I share scriptures, but I know that I know God wants you to search. But also read Psalms 119, to understand how important the law of God is. You cannot make it to heaven without it.
What Christ did for you on that cross, is not a license to sin. It will make you wicked, and you will regret it for eternity.
And to the unbeliever. To the wicked, who denies God. Who has chosen to go down the wrong track. Stop knocking others faith! Stop mocking, something, that is precious. See, you have to see, God is not mocked. And you will reap that. Like I said its dumb to mock God.
BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED; FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP. GALATIANS 6:7 KJV.
I am done for now. It had been a while since I wrote, but I know God put this all in my heart to share. I give God, glory, honor, and praise. I am so grateful. That He fills my cup. But I am not ashamed of Him. I am grateful, and I proclaim it as truth.
Blessings, and love, in Christ, my savior.
If I was searching for religion, I would want truth. I would want something, that would bring me closer to God. So, I could understand myself, others, life, how to grow, how to love others, how to know what God wants. How to survive.
More then anything how to thrive in life.
There are so many reasons, to search in our spirituality, and to try and tap into religion, but I see, and I understand, why so many are turned off with religion.
Or how some get misled. Or fall into cults. Being gullible, wanting God, and believing those who say they know Him. Yet they get misled.
First of all lets just define what religion is, or what it is to me since, I am writing this:
Religion, is rules, regulations, rituals, traditions made by men and groups. These rules, regulations, are determined and maintained, by these people, without always having the benefit of truth, from say, a King James bible.
Its not really based on truth, or what God says, but what this group, or people, or persons have determined as truth, and has nothing to do with real relationship with God, through Jesus Christ.
These people leave out one great element, and that is love. Not the fleshy kind of love, from lust. I am talking about holy love. Love that comes from loving God first, then by love for Gods truth, His commandments. And just Him. And loving others. Strange how they leave that love out. And that it is a commandment. They leave it out. They say mean spirited things, that don’t sound like that love. You have to listen carefully.
The sad thing though, is many claim they do. They claim this is what God wants, or they claim this is what they believe scriptures say. They twist, manipulate scriptures, and either corrupt the truth, to base their thoughts on. But their is an element of deceit, in how they discern, or understand, what the scriptures say. They put their own slant on it, and thereby corrupting what the truth is. They pick and choose.
Beware of those who flatter, or tickle your ears, and don’t give complete truth. You need to know what the hell and brimstone message is, so you can repent, and get right with God.
Many churches, false leaders do not teach the fear of God. Nor do they teach what scriptures say about the consequences of sin. That there is a price to be paid, if one is not right with God, and that hell is the sinners destination.
YE SERPENTS YE GENERATION OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL? MATTHEW 23:33 KJV.
Its here in the King James scriptures, in many other places, of this bible, and if you are not seeing scriptures on hell, in your corrupt revision. It could be you are not seeing it from a King James bible. GET A KING JAMES BIBLE. Its holy, and we are commanded anyway not to change it, so that means not using something that has been changed.
If you are not hearing that message clearly, at church, that is a spirit of religion, and I would leave that church. A true pastor will not only warn his parishioners about hell, but he will love them from the pulpit, like Christ would. Like a true shepherd, as Christ is.
I just saw a movie on Netflix, about a pastor, who departed from truth, and has an “inclusive” message, where he believes everybody is saved anyway. And where he did not believe there was a hell. And that message is so wrong. But I can only imagine when he meets a searching soul, who believes that nonsense, he will be used by the devil to deceive that soul. And the movie was good, but it lacked strong conviction, that this pastors message is wrong. As I viewed it, it comes from a place where its sympathetic. And sympathy is nice, but he still needs to see, his message misleads. And he is the blind leading the blind. He does become branded a Heretic. But its so vague, that only one who truly knows truth, could discern, the difference.
The movie is entitled: Come Sunday, if you are interested, in seeing it, and by what I share with you, maybe you can relate. Because if you saw someone standing by hells fire, you need to shout to them to repent, and get away from it. Because hell is real.
Maybe this is why I write. Because I see so many fall for false prophets, and their lies. They believe the wolves in sheeps clothing.
I want to warn you, now, to search for God yourself. Don’t let your mind, soul, spirit be swayed by lies, or part truth, and part lies. You need to search for God yourself. So you can know. Religion, will not do that.
Its a turn off to many. And I understand it. The worst kind, of religion, is when someone says they are a Christian, but they twist, and manipulate, pick and choose the scriptures they want, but leave out everything else God says. Religion. Rules made by men or women, to justify what they want you to think. And its wrong.
I have been seeing so many wolves in sheeps clothing, if you see some of my writings, lately, and what I have been writing, you can tell, I have been watching some in the body of Christ, who call themselves “Christians” and they have religion, instead of taking the truth of the gospel, and applying it to bring truth, to even those who would even listen to them.
So, if I was searching, which I am not, because I know truth, to set me free. One could be turned off, by these phony prophets, these phony Christians, and one might totally reject God, and thats so wrong.
I know the difference between religion and relationship, and I have relationship with Christ, by what He did on that cross, by my King James bible, and through prayer. By seeing, I needed to repent. By seeing, I need to fear God, and try to obey Him.
I am not searching, because I know God, according to my King James bible, by my own trial and error, and by repenting, clearing the slate. I know, because I do fear God, and thats something that keeps me out of hot water. But I search for my Lord daily, and that is where I know the difference. I know His voice, and to another, I will not follow.
AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM: FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE. AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM: FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS.
JOHN 10:4-5 King James.
Look, I don’t know who my audience is here. But don’t let religion, or false prophets, or mean spirited Christians turn you off from God. Don’t stop searching for God.
You may have met someone who turned you off totally in this great quest for God, that you believe, that people who have “religion” have traits, that have shocked your senses. And that we are all the same. We are not!
And you don’t want anything to do with them. I understand that. I stay away from them too. But I do search for God, and He and I share, and I understand, what His truth is. You need truth, friend.
Don’t search for religion friend. Search for God, search for the relationship you can obtain, by truly searching for the King of Kings. Like I said, in my last post, about Joyce Meyers, one should follow Christ. Never a person.
I would start by just a prayer. Repenting, admitting, your sins. Asking God to cleanse your soul, asking God to forgive you. Telling, God you want to love truly, based on who He is, not what someone has told you. Or implemented as a rule for you.
See there are rules and regulations, His commandments and laws, and if you want to please God, you need to see yourself what they are, so you have to search. Don’t deny the law. Don’t listen to messages that tell you that you don’t need the law. We do.
I recommend a King James bible. For holiness. Those that read my writings, know, I promote this very much. Because I have seen the corruption, the compromising of changing the word, so it deceives. So use only a King James bible.
Pray to Him daily. And I also believe in daily repentance to God. Every day, we can sin, if we don’t repent. This keeps the slate clean. Talk to Him. He is your greatest friend. He will never leave or forsake you. He will be there, but you have the responsibility of maintaining the relationship yourself.
You need to keep it up, or you will get cold. If you have gotten cold, repent, start over, and begin maintaining the relationship with all your heart, soul and mind.
Grow, love, and always remember what Christ did for you on the cross, is not religion, but relationship, so you can be right before the Father, God almighty.
Yes, I understand how religion can turn people off. But you have a duty for your own soul, to search for God, in this thing called relationship.
Blessings, and love, in Christ…..
I saw an example of someone apologizing today, and it released the other person. It took the blow of it away. It was not toward me, but it is someone I do love, and I saw how that person, struggled, because of the offense. I could relate. But after a day, the other person apologized, and released this person I love. That did my heart good. So good I am writing about it.
I do, admire when someone apologizes. It takes courage, it takes truth, a humbleness, an ability to throw away pride, and say, I am sorry. I made a mistake. I was wrong, please accept my apology.
It seems like many do not know how to do that, any more. It seems like pride, takes over often. And to admit ones fault, they think is beneath them. Or makes them look inferior. But not to God, He sees….And He will judge.
So many times, its not that one might not even have the right, to be offended, with someone, but its the way, they handle it.
With either, grace or accusations, or even jealousy. Thats the wrong approach. Getting into someones business.
Pride, is such an ugly spirit, that holds one back from apologizing, and it hurts us. It really does.
I do have a forgiving spirit, I guess, because I longed for it so much, growing up, but grace was not extended to me. And I know when people are gracious to me, or giving me the silent treatment. It does tick me off, because I don’t react like that. To others.
So I am mindful, that pride is not seen, by God or others. I learned early to be accountable, and not make excuses. I have learned, Christ taught us to forgive. But it also goes hand in hand, with this thing in being apologetic, and accountable.
Yet, when grace is not extended to me, I do get put off, by people, who cannot even humble themselves, to be accountable, and say. “You know what I made a mistake.” They don’t make excuses, they just say I am sorry, and then go from there.
They don’t throw other issues in the air, they admit their wrong doing, and stick with the issue.
Being mature, being humble, to say, I am sorry, I am sure, is beautiful in the sight of the Lord.
Stand your ground, when you are offended, but extend grace if someone really is sincere. But yes, I do need to reflect in this, forgive. You see, being unforgiving, is a poison. And you don’t want that in your soul. So forgive even if you don’t get an apology.
I really do respect it, and love seeing it. If someone apologizes. That tells me, they want to grow. They want to please God, and they realize, they had no room themselves, to act like they did.
But to each their own. I have learned, you cannot make someone do something like this, unless they really see the error of it.
Sad thing is, because one never knows….
I would rather, apologize, and repent to God now, before its too late, before chances go by, before even leaving this earth.
See we know when we are wrong or right, and if pride is telling us we are right when we are wrong. Its called a a “conscience” and if you don’t get that red flag, you may be far out. And you may need to do some major repenting. Because you are hearing the wrong voice. Thats not Christ.
Something to think about, “Just My Thoughts,” today….
