Think again!  Be warned, this is not going to be a feel good message, that tickles your ears, or sugar coats truth.  To just let you go on your way.  Nope this message, my post today, my thoughts, that I submit to God, will not do this, but I pray, that will open your eyes to truth, for a real spiritual revival and understanding.

Because none of us are entitled to feel the way we do.  How dare any of us, think we are entitled.  Because it then gives you permission, to do what is wrong.  But many do.  And many do, not having the fear of God.  Or a sense of guidance from God, and so everything they think or do, without God, turns into pride, and they think they are entitled.

Entitled, to be angry, entitled to hate.  Entitled, to do what they want, when they want it.  To just take it.  Entitled, to disobey Gods truth, and choose what they want. Entitled to hurt others, with no parameters.  And even entitled to deny God!  The worst….

And this is just scratching the service.

Because even though God gives us the choice in emotions, or thoughts, to choose from.  The truth is we do not know without Gods instruction, how to see that we are not entitled.  Lets use a couple of examples forgiving, and fear, to make the point.

You see, we are called to forgive.  We are called to walk in love.  We are called, to first and foremost, love the Lord with all our hearts, and souls, and minds, and obey.  That love should be there.  

But it is not there, when you don’t forgive.  When you choose, to be angry, because someone hurt you.  So you feel “entitled” to keep those bitter ugly feelings, because you were hurt.  Well hello….we all are hurt, at some point or another.

But it is what you do with that emotion, that feeling, that can come straight from hell, by either obeying God, or disobeying Him.  If you do love God, with that commandment, you give Him the hurt, because lets be honest, He was hurt the most, by going to the cross for all of our sins.  But you give Him this love, this pain, this sorrow, whatever it is, and you forgive, because this is what He did, for you, and for me.

Entitlement, owning what you feel, can sadly, be misrepresented, to deceive you.  How can any of us, truly understand, the spiritual implications though, unless we know Gods ways?  And He tells us, our ways, are not His ways.  But we are also told in scripture, we can have the mind of Christ.  Look it up, as well in a King James bible.

But we have to reject this sense of entitlement and to totally bring it to the obedience of the cross.  

CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST; II CORINTHIANS 10:5.

Obedience is the only true sense of entitlement, to trust God, to change us.  But, if we go on, with humanistic, thoughts, with no foundation in Christ, we are being deceived.  Because entitlement, can cause you or me, to walk in pride.  Pride that thinks its your accomplishment, or your right, so it puffs up your head so big, you forget to be humble.  You forget to extend mercy to someone else, to forgive.  To even be kind…

And lets just be honest.  God hates pride.  He will not bless pride.  So you think your entitled to be prideful?  Think again…

Now lets talk about fear, for a sense, because many times, we have fear.  And something has also caused us to be timid, or to be afraid.  And I don’t dispute that we can feel that.  Sometimes it is our gut instinct.  But what I am saying, is God in His word, for an example, has told us in II Timothy 1:7.  He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.  I am paraphrasing this, but look it up from a King James….

There is that thought of a sound mind, again, and that comes from Christ.  But you may think you are entitled to go around every day, afraid, of every little thing, and mess your head up daily, and speak fearful things, because you don’t know God, can take care of it.  So you torture yourself, in your sense of entitlement, and you torture others with this fear….

God have mercy, that you see this.  How can you have faith, unless you give God that fear, so you can have faith?

We have to learn, how to harness, anything we feel, and see, very carefully where we go wrong.  

BUT GOD LED THE PEOPLE ABOUT, THROUGH THE WAY OF THE WILDERNESS OF THE RED SEA:  AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WENT UP HARNESSED OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT.  Exodus 13:18.

We all sin, we all come short of the glory of God.  We all make mistakes.  But if we continually make mistakes over, and over again, we do not learn.  Not only will we come short, but we will totally miss the plan, God has for us.

What I am trying, by the grace of God for you to see, and for myself as well.  We really are not entitled to anything, without Gods mercy.  Without His permission.  Without His approval.  Without the life, He gives us.  He is so gracious.  He gives us a choice.  It has always been a choice, since the beginning of time, even with Adam and Eve.  But we reap what we sow.  These are principles He has established.  Laws of Gods Kingdom.  So we have to see it now.  And then sometimes, we run out of time.  There are no more chances.  There are no more extensions of this grace and mercy.  

THEREFORE TURN THOU TO THY GOD: KEEP MERCY AND JUDGMENT, AND WAIT ON THY GOD CONTINUALLY.  HOSEA 12:6.

I am trying with all my might, to just find my way myself.  But I know, that Christ is that way.  He is the truth, and life.  JOHN 14:6.

I can look back, and I can see, how I have made my own mistakes.  Even sins….By assuming, and thinking I am entitled to feel what I feel, and do what I wanted to do, and it led straight right to hell on earth.

Folks, even in the Bibles we choose.  We are not entitled to disobey God in this.  Not when the King James has been established, to be holy and anointed, how dare any of us, use something that would be corrupted, or changed.  When the warnings have been there, do not change, add, or delete His Holy word.  If Revelation 22:18-19 does not warn us enough, that salvation could be lost, or our names removed from the book of life, what is it going to take to lose that sense of entitlement that your salvation is secure?  Nothing is worth losing our souls over.  For hell is eternal.

And lets talk about entitlement concerning your soul.  Do you think it is secure?  So you sin, and do not repent?  Think again.  Don’t play with your salvation, because you accepted Christ, as Lord and savior, but returned to sin.  You are not entitled!  God is not mocked, and that fear of God should kick in, because you are in eternal danger.  

And to be blunt, you will be entitled for God to judge you and send you straight to hell, if you do not take Him at His Holy word! Thats just the way it is.  He is God!  

But heaven be yours by what He did, in making Him your Lord and savior, and that is an entitlement, He has promised.  But that is only gained by Christ.

And I think though, that if we become aware of this and lose that sense of entitlement, we have, that is not His ways, even in what we feel, and take it to the obedience of Christ, and take it to search for God, we can find our way, His way.  For Christ is that way.

I told you this was not going to be a feel good message.  But it can help you, I know it.  But you or me, we are not entitled, to anything.  Without God, we are lost.  And how dare any of us, think we are owed anything, but to love one another.  And love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds.

What a waste, if we think we are entitled.  And worse yet, to the one who demands to be served, because you feel entitled.  Open your eyes, your heart, your soul.  Quit stealing, what does not belong to you.  Even in words.  The only one truly entitled is Christ.  For He without sin, took our sins.

I hope this helps.  Entitlement…..

Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses. (‭Matthew‬ ‭18‬:‭23-35‬ KJV)

Sin, it separates us from God.  Sometimes we don’t even know we sin, because we think we are o.k.  But then a heartache may come, a sorrow, and we cannot understand why could this even happen to us?  

God uses these things to draw us close to Him, if we just only search….

You see, we do reap what we sow.  Some call it Karma, but it is a scriptural principle.  So please do not use that word, like the world.  Understand it by the scripture.  The “principle” of Gods Kingdom.  

BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED; FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.  FOR HE THAT SOWETH TO HIS FLESH SHALL OF THE FLESH REAP CORRUPTION; BUT HE THAT SOWETH TO THE SPIRIT SHALL OF THE SPIRIT REAP LIFE EVERLASTING.  GALATIANS 6:7-8

Like what goes up, comes down.  Its the principles, of life, God has placed, as parameters, to guide us.  To teach us.  To protect us.  To know, with understanding, and true knowledge, His ways.  

Sometimes, it takes a whole lifetime, to teach us these things, but if we receive the instruction and correct them in time, we may be able not only to avoid heartache, but receive healing.  Not only spiritual, but even physical.  Even for future generations.  If we see it in time, we may even produce fruit.  Spiritual fruit, as well, as physical fruit.  

I feel like I am talking to someone.  Yet, I know this applies to all of us.  God is talking to all of us.  But, I know because of my own life.  I know, I have reaped, many things, that I wish I had not gone through.  These heartaches and sorrows.  Even physical ailments, have caused me to humble myself in the sight of God, and ask why?  And He has shown me through His holy word.  My sins, separated me from God.  

But I have learned from these sorrows and heartaches, and I humble myself before God.  Pleading the blood of Jesus, acknowledging my sins.  Even now still, I think of my past sins, and I am so ashamed.  

They caused heartache, sorrows, and even illness.  Yes illness.  If you smoke, or sin, the sin, produces illness.  Like cancer.  

One might ask, how can a good God, allow heartache and sorrow?  Look at the world, some may say.  There is this and that, and what kind of a good God would allow this?  

If we look closer, even with Adam and Eve, He did not want us to eat from the tree of good and evil.  But disobedience, caused it.  It separated them from God, and to this day, it will also separate us from Him.  

Yet, they do not see, that when we disobey.  When we do not take God at His holy word, there are repercussions.  Christ warned us.  He said, do not be deceived.  He told us, that the enemy, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.  We are told, not to give place to the enemy.  We are told, not to sin.  We are told, we reap what we sow.  We are told truth.  But many do not heed it.  

The principle then takes an alternate route from the good things God has promised, and therein is the answer.  Its disobedience.  And that does not produce good things.  

God has taught me, and it has humbled me, so much so.  I throw away any pride, any self ability, and see, I am nothing without God.  I cried an still do cry at the mercy seat, and my Lord, did have mercy on me.

And does, but I am so careful now.  So very, very careful, to try and do it His way.  Because though, I am not exactly where I wanted to be, or could have been.  I have now just a strong sense of who He is.  And the love, and mercy He extends to all of us.  By sending His Son, our Lord, to die for my sins, on that cross, has given me such a strong desire to learn His ways.  To obey.  Our dear Lord Jesus, took our sins, upon Him.  

Yes, God corrects us, but He tells us, He does so, because He loves us.  

MY SON, DESPISE NOT THE CHASTENING OF THE LORD; NEITHER BE WEARY OF HIS CORRECTION:  FOR WHOM THE LORD LOVETH HE CORRECTETH; EVEN AS A FATHER THE SON IN WHOM HE DELIGHTETH.  HAPPY IS THE MAN THAT FINDETH WISDOM, AND THE MAN THAT GETTETH UNDERSTANDING.  PROVERBS 3:11-12.  

This love, does have conditions.  People say, oh God loves you unconditionally.  But thats wrong to say.  He loves you, yes, but He does not accept sin.  He does not accept disobedience.  He has conditions, and they produce excellence. The fear of God, is so important in matters like this.  

But then again you hear.  I don’t fear God.  He is too good.  Yes, He is good, but He is not mocked.  Again, we reap what we sow.  Teachings that do not include being in obedience, with fear of God, do not take His holy word to heart.  When was the last time you heard that?

And this is what I see, as I look at so many ministries, and feel good religions, that take truth, and disregard it.  They do not take a Holy word, and an anointed word, a King James preserved word, and they use these corrupted bibles, and mans word, to validate something, that God has not approved of, or accepted.  

And people wonder why God has abandoned them, or will not answer their prayer, or let them continue to have heartache and sorrow, or whatever else it may be that ails them.

There is no peace to the wicked.  This is scriptural. Look it up in a King James bible.  Begin searching for answers.  You will find them.  But….

There is no answer without God in it.  Our world, has purposely decided, to eliminate God from the picture, and because of that, it has brought curses.  

Think about the curses, that the Egyptians, reaped, when they would not let the people of God free, and Moses, continually went back and forth.  Everything from pestilence, to frogs, to the first born dying, were curses, because they would not believe God.  To set those people free.

Now we see in our world, everything, as well, that clearly shows, the repercussions, of sins.  I pray we get it right.  But we have in our world, many heartaches, and sorrows, because of our disobedience.  

I can only suggest, that you study yourself, your ways, your thoughts, and see what are they based on?  God could use you.  

Repentance, clears the slate, for all of us.  None is holy, we all have sinned, we all fall short of the glory of God.  

But I write to you, if you wonder why you have had this heartache or heartaches.  Just so you know, again, God will, and can and does use these things to correct us, to change us, to His ways.  

Repentance, and prayer, with a good King James Bible are the tools you need to change, that heartache and sorrow, to joy in the Lord.  Learning Gods ways.  

And I just have to say something here as well, as the Lord prompts me, do not return evil from some heartache or sorrow you have gotten even from someone else.  Vengeance belongs to God not us.  

You may be hurt, and with sorrow, and may not understand the principles, but seek God, let Him, mend your heart.  Let Him, show you His ways.  Let Him, be your comfort.  Let Him, be your love.  

This is not the time to be lazy.  Or put it off.  Tomorrow is not promised to anyone.  Get it right now.  WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Truth counts….Not only now my friends, but for eternity.  Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6 King James.
