What was He Seeking?

What was He Seeking?

What was he seeking,
when he chased after all those girls back then?
Was he looking for one to replace his mother
or trying to fill a void?
Could there been a hurt so deep that he
thought pretty girls would fix it?
What is it about sex that
entice, entangle, engulf guys so much?
Is it that they are programmed from a young age
to think of women as an object
to be looked at, used, and thought of as pleasure?
Where did this start and,
how do we make it end?

In the garden it began,
When Eve disobeyed God.
When God cursed Eve and her offspring,
taking away the perfection that was promised,
making child bearing painful,
allowing Satan to roam free.
Satan whispered to Eve,
as he whispered to us,
nudging us towards a life of sin;
wanting us to waste away in pleasures
that do not satisfy,
so we seek more and more,
until we are in ruins.

However,
there is one who saves.
One who can
take it all away.

“God gave His only begotten son,
so whoever believes in him shall not parish,
but have eternal life.”
John 3:16

Jesus paid four our sins,
On the cross,
With his life,
in full,
so that all our sins
could be forgiven.

But we must ask for forgiveness
By confessing with our mouth,
and repenting our behavior.
Although, sometimes we need help,
and we ask others to pray with us;
allowing God to move within us,
opening up the deep wounds,
and healing us completely.
Reclaiming our souls,
making them pure.

We feel cleansed from the inside out,
and our lives improve dramatically.

Suddenly, things are just better for us.
Suddenly, it seems silly to not forgive.

As long as God holds our hearts
and we obey His commands,
Satan will be unable to touch us.
His influence will have worn off
and continue to do so,
as long as we stand firm in temptation,
and pass our test.

The more we love God and focus on Him,
the less we will desire what is in the world,
and we won’t feel the need to chase
all those pretty girls.

Beware of False Prophets

Beware of False Prophets

“For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect.” Matthew 24:24

God has revealed something astounding to me today. He revealed to me that I have been following the teaching of false prophets. You may have seen them, and I have mention one in my earlier blog posts. I thought what I was hearing was good, but it was not. I thought it was good that my one year old son liked to watch her on television, but it was not. You see, false prophets twist the words of the Gospel to fit their own agenda. They are very popular and some of my friends and a family member, I am sad to say, teach and follow her agenda. The main problem is that, the verses are taken out of context to apply that teaching to us, as though we are “mini gods”. Everything in The Bible points us to Christ, and away from our own selfish desires. I hope I have not taken bible verses out of context in my own blog to apply it to whatever point I am trying to convey. I do not intend to be a false prophet.

Just to be clear, I started this blog with a nudge from God to minister since 2009. I made choices between the time God nudged me, to a few months before I began to write, that I believe, that some choices that I had made, are lessons in which He intends for me to use. The lesson are those that I have learned and grown from, and have become closer to God in my times of adversity and trial. I always pray about what to write, and I only write what God has put heavily on my heart. For days or just hours before the blog post is written, I am studying, learning, and listening to God’s word, in The Bible and in prayer.

When you study, interpret, and share scripture, there are three things that you need to check off your list:

1. You pray first.

2. You seek and apply the full context.

3. You realize that God has made a body of believers.

  • Each are equipped with their own spiritual gifts, and you should not rely only on what your interpretation of The Bible is. This is why God has equipped pastors and for believers form small groups, or a group of Christian friends to talk to.

 

What I am not saying is that every single word out of a believer’s mouth is false teaching or is it said on purpose, but when a teacher absolutely believes what they say is true, even when it goes against everything taught in the bible, then they are teaching falsely. Always look up the scripture, and when something feels off, when the person teaching is praised higher than God, when God gets pushed out of the picture, then note, that they are teaching lies, and there could be hidden messages of Satanism coming out of them. In other words Satan holds their heart, not God. God has been pushed out, and Satan has been invited in. When they refuse to answer simple questions about Demons, Satan, Hell, and if they are not clear that Jesus is the only path to The Father, as well as, promoting the self, then they are a false prophet and cannot and should not be followed, but they are an abomination to God.

This all started with me looking up the age of a female Televangelist.

Please do your own discerning with God about this topic. I do not believe all are evil, but may have just misinterpreted scripture.

“17 I urge you, brothers to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. 18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naïve people. 19 Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I am full of joy over you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.” Romans 16: 17-19

The prophetic books of the Bible contain some of the most difficult passages in the entire Old Testament and can prove especially confusing for those new to this corpus. This book offers a thorough and insightful introduction for the beginning student of the Old Testament prophetic literature . . .

Procrastination is the Devil’s Trap

Procrastination is the Devil’s Trap

“The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.” Proverbs 13:4

Have your ever fallen into the trap were you want to do something, have the mind to do something, and then it never gets done, until a month later? That was me last month . . . with my blog. I had so many ideas for blog posts, and had even written some in my head, and half of one on paper. However, since I do not write my blog on paper at my parent’s house, I felt out of my element, and the words were not flowing well. It just seems like forces beyond myself, probably the Devil, always stopped me from completing the simple task that God has called me to do. Whether it be that my child is teething again, and I could never get a spare moment when I was not completely exhausted from taking care of him, cleaning the house, gardening, grocery shopping, and cooking dinner. Then, it could have been the traveling, and have a hard time getting back into my grove. Whatever it was, I procrastinated on my blog for almost exactly a month, not good kingdom work, especially since, when I was diligent about my blog, my husband and I did not fight for a solid month straight. I’m not saying all our problems went away, but somehow, God was using my diligence in writing my blog to spread His message, and His blessings cascaded into our marriage. I trusted God more, and my husband’s antics bothered me less, or not at all. Now, it feels as though we are falling back to square one. I slacked off, and God blessed us less. God wanted me to learn that if I am not doing His kingdom work, the way and when He wants it done, then I will feel that effect in my marriage. God did not totally stop blessing us, but He got out of the way, to allow me to feel the effects, and I may have, unintentionally, let the Devil run wild in our lives again. Although, when I noticed the stench of the Devil, I told him to leave our house, in Jesus name, and I invited God back in, and I have done this several times since Sunday.

Are you looking for the perfect Christian Christmas gift? It’s cyber week thru December 7!!!

 
Procrastination is a bad pill to take. It could start out as a small break, and then lead to no productivity for the rest of the day. If you forget to do your kingdom work, and procrastinate, you will fall into the Devil’s trap. If you spend all of your time thinking about what you need to get done and do not actually get it done, all you have done is waste your time and God’s because He could have used you to bless someone else.

“15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5: 15-17

God has given us all specific gifts to use not only to bless others, but to renew our spirit, to heal, to learn, and to dive deeper into God’s kingdom. They are not meant to burden us or to waste our time, but if we do them and do them well and with diligence, we will find that we have made such better use of our time, than we could if we tried to spend it the way

thought we should. We will not only feel better, but have made someone else feel better, because God’s blessings are abundant. He wants to bless us more, but we have to be obedient and not succumb to fear. We will not always get it right and allow our hormones or our anger to get the best of us, but God will work on us diligently if we are diligent in doing his kingdom work to the best of our abilities.

 
Dear Lord,

 
Please be gracious to us, and forgive us for procrastinating on doing your kingdom work and spreading the Word. Help us to get back on our feet, stand up straight, and walk with you, blessing others as you have blessed us. Give us discernment, for when we should be resting and when we should be working. Help us to say no when we need to and fix our wrongs to make them right. Please bless those who need a hot meal and a warm bed for the cold winter nights. Keep us safe, and help us to remember to pray:

 
Our Father who art in heaven, hollowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.

 
In Jesus name,
Amen
