God Don’t Understand.

Mar

Greetings again my fellow virtualonians, webanites, friends, foes, aliens and all monsters alike, welcome back to my humble abode.

sunnn 33

It is often said by many, especially ‘believer’s’ that God just doesn’t really understand all of the heartache and misery that we are going through in our life, when times get rough we often turn to that with somewhat of a mocking tone in our voice – or mostly genuinely hurt and confused, asking God, why?

Why God would you force me to go through such a time in my life because I don’t know if I can handle anymore than what you have already given me to handle, correction, I know whatever it is that someone may be going through right now, or whatever it is that a person might have gone through in the past, it all seems like too much to continue bearing.

As if God couldn’t’ really care less about our current circumstances right? Well, to be clear, God really does care about our everyday life and if we too quick forget that then we will lose the truth of his word that tells us he never gives us more than we can handle, and what we really can’t handle, he steps in and intervenes for us.

He KNOWS:

Here is something very assuring for us to know, our God does indeed know of the pain that we endure, he understands our heartbreak like no one else and on some things he may be one of the only that really understands, because we are his child and who would most likely REALLY know their child like a Father would, but a Father?

All those afflictions and strikes to his back that he took while being crucified for our sins sakes, the mockery that he took from those he came to be a Messiah for – the cruelty and pain he must of felt in those dark times, can you even imagine what that would have possibly even felt like?

Because I can’t. 

Yet while knowing the truth of our bible, for so many years, many of us still have the gall to say something like ‘God don’t care’ many of us still have the nerve to say that he doesn’t know or understand what it is that we are going through, when in fact we KNOW that he has already brought us through this trial that we are having to endure.

We know that he has been watching over us the whole time, guiding us and protecting us, showing us the way out and we don’t even see it until we’re almost there – so why is that we are so quick to shout out in anger at God even though we know?

Conclusion:

Brothers, Sisters, friends, sociopaths, it’s because we are human, it really is that simple. We have a tendency to get over upset during times of confusion, and for those of us that already don’t do well under pressure then that is all the more reason to see that we happen to act naturally in times of distress.

Which is why I just don’t understand these la-di-da Christians that seems to have just stepped out of Candy-Land with this great big lolly and a huge creepy step-ford smile on their faces, they don’t want anyone expressing negative feelings for too long because apparently ‘that isn’t the way of God’.

What on earth is that even supposed to mean? God himself in his written word said that there is a time and season for everything – most times what we deal with is reality, not negativity because people need to learn that there is a huge difference in being  a negative person and being a realistic person.

I will leave you with one of my own personal favorite sayings.

One must learn to live in a negative world, with a positive attitude – while dealing with things REALISTICALLY. – Nathan Tune

I thank you all for taking the time out of your very important days to read this piece from my blog and until next time, may you be richly blessed from Christ above and as always.

Be Unique…

Mar

Ever find it funny how we live in a world that often embraces the ‘uniqueness’ of someone until they find out they don’t agree?

ra

There is more than ever a double standard in our society today and if you ask me, I find it rather sickening, how is it that anyone couldn’t? Be you, be who YOU want to be, they say, don’t ever let anyone else tell you how to live, what to feel, believe or think.

Think for YOURSELF, and then when people actually form a self made opinion on their own, it seems all of a sudden that is wrong and you just shouldn’t do that. But why? Why exactly is it so bad to express yourself in todays world, if you aren’t gay that is, or liberal, if you don’t support the mass murder of innocent lives that is.

As long as you believe what society tells you is ok to believe, well let me get one thing clear, I would rather know someone that is not afraid to stand for what they believe in even if that belief differs from mine, instead of knowing someone that believes what they believe simply because ‘they’re’ told to believe that.

Why?

Well ok listen, if you believe in supporting gay people, if you are gay, if you believe in the mass murder of innocent lives, if you do believe all those horrible liberal things like socialism and even communism, ok that’s just fine.

I most certainly do not agree with that, but if you formed those beliefs on your own, great. The thing about America however is this, this is what is a key factor in making our country great and rarely do people pay any attention to it, what is it my friends?

Uniqueness

The idea that men can live freely, the idea that men can have a unique essence about them, the idea that we can all have our own opinions and beliefs about how things should be, without being HUSHED by anyone, now I don’t aim to shut anyone up, because unlike the liberal left, I actually believe in freedom, I actually BELIEVE in equality.

And while I strongly disagree with their policies, I do support their right to have them, but why is it that they often deny us what it is that they say they believe? Why do they deny our unique personalities and lifestyles when they claim to fully support those?

Well I’m sure they have many answers for that, but whatever they are I don’t think they’re worth much, because it’ll be some idiotic argument against freedom and none of us has time for that, but here’s something that we have time for.

Individuality

The Idea that we can all be who we need to be, without having Government tell us otherwise, does this mean I support things that I don’t agree with? No of course not, I will stand against those things, but I support people’s right to express those personal ideas and beliefs.

Like how it should be, people have to realize that in ‘Freedom’ at some point someones will be infringed upon one way or another, why is that? If a grocery store owner wants to make it his store policy that all employees must be vaccinated, then that is his right, and if a person refuses to get vaccinated, then that just happens to be their right as well.

There are a lot of issues more complicated then others, but there is an equal balance in living free while also living well regulated at the same time, we cannot function without the proper laws, it is necessary for a good society to survive.

However, that doesn’t mean that we have to ever stop being ourselves, I am considered very unique in today’s society and quite frankly I embrace that, if it’s odd that I support morals, values, ethics and Christian principals.

Then so be it. 

If it’s strange that I support being kind, loving, inspirational and insist on making the world a better place for us all to live, then that is fine too. If it’s so odd that I believe in the teachings of Christ that tells us to love, and to have discipline as well.

Okay, that’s fine too, but regardless of what anyone tries to make me do, I won’t change. And it isn’t my goal to make anyone else change either, my only job is to present the Gospel to others with love and if they refuse to except it, then it’s out of my hands.

Nevertheless, I will continue to do what I do, I will continue to be who I am, and I will love those who hate me, because most the time those who hate me are incredibly lost and without the Christ in their life, is all the more reason to love.

I hope this post gave you some type of insight today, I know Monday’s are everyone’s most hated day, but hopefully this piece was able to enlighten you in someway.

Until next time…

Hello…

Mar
27

Hi there, how are you? I hope that you’re doing well today, I just want to take a moment to check up on you that’s all.

Blue-energy

Are you doing well? Has anything interesting happened in your life recently? How about your week, how has that been going for you? I hope it’s been going great because nothing else would be greater than knowing that you are working towards a brighter tomorrow.

Unfortunately though, sometimes we lose sight of tomorrow, we are quickly losing a brighter future all together, hello, I’m Nathan Tune and what I really would like to talk to you about today is a bit more than you might of bargained for when you first decided to click the link in your newsfeed, or wherever it is that you were directed to me from.

What do you think about Family? Do you have a family, whether it’s of your own or it’s one you are a part of I am looking to see if you actually care about your family, if your family has the values that most all families do, like teaching one not to lie or steal or having good manners, love, faith and integrity.

How about something else, are you a Christian by any chance, do you happen to support some things that you might not really feel that comfortable with but you do so anyways just to make yourself feel popular?

Oh I’m Sorry:

Am I judging you? I don’t think I am, I’m just asking a simple question that’s all I’m doing because It’s not like you’re asking yourself that question now is it? Are you? Are you really even considering what it is that you are doing, or are you doing these things just to continue on in your cozy lifestyle?

No my intension aren’t to attack or to judge, but just to make you think, that’s all, that’s all my intentions are because it seems to me that too many people these days say one thing and then apparently  do another thing totally opposite to what they say and I am trying to figure out exactly why that is?

Can I even do that though? Perhaps I can, I guess I will have to see. A lot of people like to say that they are the ‘family’ type – they like to go to Church every Sunday without fail, they believe in the core values and principals of the bible and hold them dear to their hearts, but when it comes to big public actions, they show differently in those.

And then you know what happens? People all of a sudden begin to lose hope in humanity because it seems to them that all that anyone is trying to do is just get more popular by doing and saying anything possible that they can to keep from losing everyone they ‘love’.

One Question:

Would you even consider lying to someone if you knew they had cancer and you knew you had the cure to that cancer, or what about this.

(Yeah I said one question but oh well.)

Would you even consider letting someone that you ‘love’ walk out in front of a bus without trying to stop them? So why would you lie about so many things to them in order to not hurt their feelings?

I don’t know why so many people do the things they do but it really gets to me and I hope that more and more often people will just boldly and freely speak their minds without fear of hurting other’s feelings. I mean I understand the importance when it comes to other’s feelings, but at the same time isn’t honesty something important too?

Hmm…

Conclusion:

Don’t eat too much sugar or you’ll get fat, drink a lot of pickle juice if you don’t want to get fat, and if you don’t wanna do a single one of those then well…

I guess you can just eat a whole lot of pizza and french fries until you can’t hold anymore. Ok I’m kidding that’s not really the real conclusion of this blog post, I was just having a little fun, now I’m done; in conclusion – we really have to start being more open and honest with each other.

Even if it means a little bit of backlash every  now and then, It is very important that we start trying to have dialogue with each other instead of just trying to blame everyone and everything.

One last thing webianites, eat lots of cookies and ice cream it makes for a really great day, also this is this weeks final blog post which I would like to briefly discuss – from now on until I can’t possibly do it anymore.

I am going to be posting a blog post a day every day for 5 days a week taking Saturday (Shabbat) and Sunday off to plan the next weeks posts, be in continual prayer for me and wish me much luck.

Until next time…

What Now?

Mar
26

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, whatever time it is, wherever and whoever you are, greetings and Shalom.

qmark

I write to you today in a bit of a rush actually, well not really, well maybe, who knows right? Sometimes we can get so consumed by trying to do something great that we can actually forget to just be great, actually living life the way we are supposed to live it and sadly that causes us to miss out on a lot and I often try and not make that mistake myself.

But sometimes I happen to get distracted by a dream, a goal, a strong aspiration of something that I really, really would like to do and before I know it I find myself asking the same question that I’ve decided to title this blog, what is it that you do when you have reached a point that seems hopeless, useless, maybe even pointless?

Keep Moving:

I know that this is something that I tend to speak of very often but you have to understand that I really personally know what this actually means, and I know that my family does, because all of our life no matter what it is that life has thrown our way we have always been able to keep right on moving with strength determination and perseverance most of all.

Without that I don’t think we would have gotten as far as we have, what now? I’m sure that there are many of you out there going through all kinds of trials and troubles and tribulations that maybe even I myself cannot even begin to comprehend what type of pain it is that you may be going through.

Perseverance my friends, that is a valuable key in overcoming all these obstacles that you may be facing right now, and I know that it’s hard to hear any type of encouragement from this 20 year old kid that you may think doesn’t know anything about what’s going on in life and definitely not anything about you.

Which is most likely true, I don’t know you, maybe I don’t but here’s something I am most certainly familiar with, pain, hurt heartache, struggles and hardships.

Believe:

You may have heard me mention this before, maybe not and if you so happen to be a new reader, then just listen to what it is that I have to say on this matter, perhaps you will be inspired & encouraged to ‘keep moving’ in your troubled times.

Growing up way out in the middle of nowhere in a very, very, very small town in Southeast Missouri, my grandpa unable to help much anymore, I was 7 years old – my uncle was 10 – my mom was unable to help from disabilities and my great grandmother wasn’t so well either.

I watched my Grandma conquer some very dark times then, when we had only but certain things to eat, the electric was almost shut off multiple times but every time God would come sweeping in at the nick of time, having heard my grandma’s prayers.

We never starved and we always had enough, and every day my Grandma would tell me to ‘Believe’ she would tell me that if I had faith in the little things, then God would bless us with bigger things.

FAITH-

…the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. – Hebrews 11:1 K.J.V.

I have to say that from experiencing the miracles in my life personally, and in my families life, these are more than words that is often used as ‘pick me up’ words, these are actually the very core beliefs of faith.

I know there are many hurting right now, and while I’m not this Joel Osteen fluff and puff preacher, I’m also someone that does believe we can have comfort in our trials in pain – it’s not all ever gonna go away, not when we want it to and it will be there to cause us pain.

But we have a hope, we have peace and assurance found in Christ, I encourage you today to let not your heart be troubled during whatever hardships it is that you find yourself in right at this very moment, as matter of fact I ask that you be constantly reminded of God’s word’s to Paul.

Sufficient Grace –

In Conclusion:

His grace truly is sufficient to carry you through any type of pain it is that you may be going through your life at this very moment and while I mostly believe in spreading the core truth of God in dealing with peoples souls.

I also know that people need his strength to carry them through the trials in their life and I know that according to the scripture and from my own personal/family experience that he will.

Believe, have faith, keep moving on, never give up and never surrender because God is our mighty defender.

Until next time…

God First…

Mar

This is a picture of my bible cover that I got as gift for Easter back in 2013 and I would really like to make something clear between me and you, the readers.

bible o

I contemplate for quite sometime what it is that I am going to say, before I say it, why? Because  in reality I really don’t want to say something that I shouldn’t, I study things before I make a comment on them and I make sure I have as much information about that subject BEFORE I form a personal opinion on the matter, and most times If I do I am able to back it up with facts.

However, there are times that I feel strongly impressed upon by God to say some very controversial things and I give much prayer and thought to these matters as well, I don’t normally speak without thinking and I am not afraid to say what it is that I feel God has brought to my attention to say.

Because unlike some ‘Christians’ I actually care for peoples souls, I care about feelings oh yes but in the end if you truly are a Christian, which one will really count? Saving a person’s own feelings, or saving their soul? You’ve really got to think about that one because most Christians today don’t.

LOVE:

They cling on to this ‘false’ wishy washy love that they interpret to mean sparing a persons feelings in order to get them to come to Christ, but will they truly ever come to Christ, most times they will not truly come to Christ and I’m not saying spewing all kinds of hate like those WestBoro baptist church loonies either. I’m talking about standing firm in your principals of truth in love with boldness.

These are the things that I have been working hard to emphasize all year long, I believe that it is vital that we as THE Church Of Jesus Christ quit being such wussified babies, and man up about our faith. Take a firm stand in the Lord and not back down from it, regardless of the consequences, regardless of hurting feelings at times, regardless of being called a hater.

No, we won’t intend to hurt anyone, never. Never do I purposely plan to hurt people for my joy and I always use my words ever so carefully because I do not want to hurt people on purpose, BUT at the same time I use TRUTH in LOVE with BOLDNESS…

This Is Key:

When we lose this key we will lose all hope of ever actually reaching these people, if we try all love love love then they will be lost from not being deeply rooted in his entire truth, and if we simply try hate hate hate (which I never support or do not ever recommend and do not believe it’s ever found in the bible) then those we are hoping to reach will turn away from being hurt by us and this is not what we want to happen.

Here’s what we want my friends, we want to be their friend for real, we want to love them, we want to care for them exactly as Jesus would, because think about it, we need to be constantly asking ourselves WWJD?

It amazes me how many people completely ignore this simple step in finding out how it is that Jesus would want you to act, what he would want you to do, say or move in a specific situation, now is it because they just don’t care or what? I mean how can so many be so careless as to what it is that their heavenly Father would want them to do?

Perhaps that isn’t always the case, if it isn’t, try to always keep that in mind from now on, because it is a vitally important key in learning to do something else like Jesus would.

What Does It Mean?

What does it mean to love like Jesus did? What does it mean to love like him? Along with WWJD, this is something that I often find myself asking, myself and the reason of this so happens to be because awhile back I was filled with a deep desire to know what it meant to love exactly like Jesus used to.

To love exactly how it is that he loves now, because I know when he sees the lost and his sheep doing things that will lead them to hell, I know it must hurt, but how much? I’m pretty sure that I can’t even possibly begin to imagine the type of pain that he must feel, I mean after all he  did love us all so much that he died on the cross for our sins so that if we would believe in him we could be saved.

So you can only try and comprehend how much it is that he actually loves us, because in reality we can never truly understand it, but can we ever understand what it means to love LIKE him?Perhaps we can, I think we can anyways, because I prayed and asked him to show me and every since then each time I see something that isn’t in accordance with God’s word my heart aches out more than it ever has before in an incredible moving way.

I used the photo of my bible cover to say this.

In Conclusion:

Even if one day that bible is illegal in this country right here, I have my mind set, I am most certainly ready to be killed for defending what it has to say, not merely defending it, but doing what it commands me to do, now It doesn’t command me to kill, rape, behead or brutally murder anyone that doesn’t agree with what it says.

Nor do I believe that is what it tells me to do, no, I believe that in scripture I am commanded to go out and preach the gospel amongst the world.

 

Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. – Mark 16:15 K.J.V.

 

To present people his word, the word ‘Gospel’ is translated into “Good News” people have a choice to accept or reject it, I can’t bend or break them either way, my only job is to tell you about Jesus.

So in closing let me leave you with this, one of the most inspirational, most known quoted verses in the bible, and in the world.

John 3:16
For God So loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should NOT perish but have everlasting life.

Until next time…

Imagine…

Mar

I’d like to share with you today, the last audio recording of mine for quite awhile.

imagine

I titled this piece “Imagine A World” because if you listen to the background music, which comes from “The Secession” on youtube; I was inspired just by listening to this song called “Move Forth” it’s amazing. I love listening to music, I really love everything that music has to offer us and if I do say so myself well, sometimes I can get a bit carried away.

However, as I was watching youtube one night thinking as always, I ran across this song and while It’s not the first time I’ve listened to this group, I have to say that this time I was truly consumed with inspiration, I immediately started writing the words that I heard as I was listening and then I went on to make an audio recording of it, which was almost impossible trying to get done because of the limited space on the computer (which is now full.)

I was struggling but eventually I got it done, and I’m pretty proud at how it turned out, and when I get the first chance I can I am going to make a video along with it and launch a campaign  called –

Be A Difference – See A Difference:

Because these are some of the most important things that I can think of that we as a society can do to make our world a better place, because if we don’t do these things then we will sadly continue to rush down this hill of hate, anger, angst, racism, violence, discrimination and cruelty.

I’m sure no one wants that, I sure don’t. But sadly I see it everywhere, Hate – I see it in the schoolrooms of our children’s schools, I see it in the big shot businesses of our society, it is easily spotted in the dark shadows of our media, our politics, our ‘religions’ in Christianity.

It can be spotted from all corners of this earth, with old hatred rising in the Middle East against the Jewish people, with what is happening in Ferguson, it seems to me that no one is really looking around for a solution. It seems to me that everyone is too busy blaming each other totally completely ignoring all facts and all logic, making it about race, oh the liberals have been doing that for years, Al Sharpton and others spew their hate against the Whites and I don’t deny there are White people doing the same against blacks.

But fire with fire will only cause more fire my friends, we have to fight this thing with real love, real truth, real equality, not a wishy washy love – not a half truth, not a liberal equality, but to get down to the core of this we need to reach deep within ourselves and start looking beyond race, color and sex.

Be Better:

It is incredibly painful to me how the hate is rising in our country from all sides against all people, of all types in all faiths, races, political agendas and society over all is deteriorating something fierce. It’s deeply disturbing, It angers me that people do what they do, people’s stupidity angers me, peoples lack of facts, ignorance and blindness to the truth it all angers every last fiber of my being. I might even rant and rave, but we have got to quit pouring gasoline on fire that will indeed create more fire.

We’ve got to be better, we’ve got to look at each other as people. #LIFEMATTERS ALL Life matters because if it doesn’t then what type of society are we? I don’t deny Racism, when I notice it or sense it I get upset, but everyone plays the race card, discrimination and it’s ruled out any possibility of real racism and it’s affected those people, it’s only stirred up more hate sadly, and things are not as racist as the left keeps trying to make them out to be.

If you’re somebody that really wants to see a difference, then be a difference.

Because once we start doing that, that my friends, that is when we will truly SEE a difference.

Imagine A World:

Imagine a world where anything is possible, where dreams always come true hearts never break, tears are never shed, lies are never told, pain isn’t a reality. Imagine a world filled with pure bliss, joy, love, peace, kindness, friendship, togetherness, laughter.

No cancer, no sickness or disease at all.

Imagine a world without hate a world without crime a world without war a world without hunger.

Imagine the best world your mind can possibly imagine, now open your eyes and go out to make that world – your world.

Life is precious, make it count.

Stand…

Mar
23

Hello again, neighbors, friends, brothers, sisters, ladies, gentlemen, webianites, internetonians, people across the land, sea, and world.

stand
I am here to talk with you today about one thing, who knows though, my mind can quickly move from one thing to another just like that (you don’t know it but it just did) but no worries because I’ll work hard to stay on topic, maybe.

Winston Churchill not an uncommon name as far as people actually knowing that name I mean, not a man that isn’t famously recognized across the world, because he is, and if anyone knew more about taking a stand on something it most certainly was him.

He was a powerful man in strength, integrity, boldness, guts, faith, patriotism of his country, and in determination to stand against the evil of his time, he wasn’t afraid of these things, he wasn’t afraid to speak his mind.

As matter of fact, he embraced it, he was a man that gave people hope, he was a leader. Back then we actually had those, today though I bet if Churchill said even a small fraction of what he did back then, he would be labeled a hater probably even put in jail for ‘racism’ and so much more, our world has come a long ways.

Good things and bad things, where we have failed in one area, we’ve learned to make up in another. However, we also can’t seem to break ourselves from making the same mistakes over and over again, we need to realize that we can’t allow history to repeat itself and sadly it already has a lot, people swore they would never let this happen again, but sadly that generation is dying off and there isn’t enough smart enough to care.

Or is there? Perhaps there is, actually I believe there is. 

The only problem however, is that those who actually care, don’t seem to care enough. They understand the problems very well, they know what is going on in the darkened world and they just don’t know what to do, or perhaps they are afraid? Is that it?

Yes, that could be… These are dark times that we are living in and I’m afraid if we don’t do something now, we will indeed repeat history, we may very well be on the brink of WWIII but horribly enough; hardly anyone is paying any attention to the signs, hardly anyone is standing up.

Churchill once said:

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. – Winston Churchill

People these days are weak, and I know I am at guilt myself at times, but we must understand. If we don’t stand, who will? I know that we often think it won’t really matter, people won’t listen, ‘they’ll think I’m crazy’ ‘they’ll make fun of me’ ‘they won’t be my friend anymore’ ‘I’ll have enemies’ what then?

Well, I guess then you have enemies, but if the cause is great enough, deep down no matter what you will know, you will know to keep moving forward because you will realize how much it matters that you do.

I didn’t intend to get off into this subject, but now that I am here, let me find some way to conclude my thoughts on the matter so we can move along.

Ahh…

I will leave you with this quote on the matter.

“If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.” – Gordon A. Eadie

It seems that has what is slowly, possibly more rapidly each day in our society, our world is filled with this almost ‘universal’ belief that all beliefs are equal and that they qualify to be as much truth as anything else, and with time that will destroy everything that we as a society stand for.

Because without truth, then nothing really matters anymore does it? Well actually I seem to be getting somewhat off the subject again. Maybe not.

Without truth then there is no longer a reason to ‘take a stand’ because there is nothing to stand for because we have at that point fallen for the outright lie that all things mean the same thing, all religions are equal (including satanist, which just isn’t true) all things are the same.

By that point we might as well be living in ‘The Giver’ now that movie was something else, it sure made you appreciate life more, because personally, I believe it showed us all the things may take for granted in our every day lives.

And when we lose the ability to stand up for the most important things, all else will fall behind, we have to continuously make a stand my friends, a bold stand a strong stand.

We cannot let ourselves be moved from that stand either, because there is meaning and value in what we believe, as Christians we cannot let our faith be crushed and destroyed having to watch it crumble before us like it was nothing, because it is something we cannot give up the fight and as Americans we cannot let our patriotism be burned out of us.

It’s important that even if our ‘leaders’ don’t believe in anything, we must. Because if one thing is for certain it’s this, America isn’t our Government, America is the people.

Because when tables really get turned over, American’s true pure patriotic Americans, know how to rise to the occasion, and that is why I’m proud to be an American.

The Government never has defined us as a people, it cannot, because we are so diverse. The people define America, the people is what makes America great.

And I encourage you, as Christians, as Americans, to stand with me, to stand strong, preach truth. Spread truth.

Stand with Israel and show them support in prayer and everything you can do to show them that even if our leaders don’t, WE DO.

Until next time my friends.

BEWARE!

Mar

Well I’m not known for being too conscious of a person’s feelings not always anyways, especially when it comes to their soul.

fluff

Today I know that I am touching on a very, well, touchy subject, the majority of ‘Modern Day Christians’ love to quote prosperity verses that are ever so rarely found in the word, and if it is found in the bible, then they are mostly in the old testament.

Not ALL prosperity though, usually the kind of prosperity preachers like is the world kind like, Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Creflo Dollar, Joseph Prince and so many others in the TV preacher world love to talk about, and if you EVER try to call attention to these false teachings then GOD FORBID, how DARE you JUDGE those ‘Men Of God’ how DARE you even consider paying ANY attention to the MULTIPLE verses found right there in the bible WARNING us of wolves like these.

How DARE You:

Or wait, actually…  HOW DARE JESUS!

Many people seem to misunderstand the verses context in Matt. 7:1 “Judge Not” as matter of fact, sometimes (if it weren’t for them always quoting OT verses about riches) I would guarantee that “Judge Not” is the only thing they even seen in the bible however we know that the word of God does NOT contradict itself, it goes into a perfect harmony with itself.

When Jesus was telling us not to Judge, he also explained that we SHOULD judge teachers before us, because outwardly they APPEAR to be one of us, but INWARDLY they are ravening WOLVES.

WOLVES my friend.

Don’t blame me, blame Jesus, he said it. (I shouldn’t of even said that, many of you just might.)

Matthew 7:15-23 KJV:
  1. 15. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
  2. 16. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
  3. 17. Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
  4. 18. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
  5. 19. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
  6. 20. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
  7. 21. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
  8. 22. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
  9. 23. And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity

Also:

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. – John 7:24 K.J.V.

The above scriptures in Matthew are very clear that Jesus wanted us to BEWARE of those fluff and puff teachers, teachers of all kinds really, regardless of what they teach, and John is very clear that Jesus instructs us to use some common sense and discern things righteously, the bottom line is if it doesn’t line up with God’s word, then I’m sorry my friends, they are not of God.

I’m NT ONLY:

Because the Old Testament is passed away right? Well there are things that no longer apply and then there are things that do, the thing is though, people get those things mixed up.

Example:

When someone is wanting to find a way to support their sinful lifestyle they will quickly point out that in the NT “God is love, God is Grace, Forgiveness, Mercy the OT is meaningless now, don’t get a haircut dude!”

Which is pretty much ALL true, but he is also JUST – HOLY – RIGHTEOUS, and that is something everyone seems to quickly forget, sadly.

Then after stating that they don’t believe in the OT at all, they then refer to it to support their fleshly earthly desires of riches and ‘worldly’ prosperity, no pain, no suffering, no hard road at all.

And many are able to accomplish this, but are they truly ‘living for God?’ I don’t believe so, not entirely anyways, God wants us to be COMPLETELY devoted him, he doesn’t want us in it halfheartedly, we can NOT be fence riders.

I have seen preachers get pretty much everything they ever wanted handed to them, why?

COMPROMISE

When you give in to the devils temptations and compromise the word of God then you will have people falling head over heels for you too, just as Paul warned in  2nd Timothy.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 KJV:
  1. 1.This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
  2. 2.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
  3. 3. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
  4. 4. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
  5. 5. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
 2 Timothy 4:3-5 KJV:
  1. 3. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
  2. 4. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
  3. 5. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Being a Christian is not easy, no it doesn’t have to be all hard either, and it isn’t a ‘religion’ of rules and no fun, not if you don’t make it that way, because it isn’t that way.

You know why?

Because Jesus didn’t say he was one single religion, he didn’t mention that at all, what he said in John 14:6 was that he IS –

THE WAY – THE TRUTH – THE LIFE

NO man comes to the Father but by HIM, he is the ONLY way.

In Conclusion:

The message of the ‘Prosperity’ gospel holds no logic whatsoever, biblically or figuratively, because the way these prosperity teachers want you to go is to mindlessly unplug the negative cable from your car battery and expect it to take you to work with only the positive cable hooked up.

But come on, if you know how batteries work, you know good and well that if you unplug the negative cable from your car battery then you just aren’t gonna be going anywhere in it.

Why?

Because to produce power it requires an equal balance of positive AND negative.

As with life, our life as we know it consist of BOTH equally positive and negative events, and while the positive will always outweigh the bad, just remember, things wouldn’t be nearly the same if we didn’t have the hard events in our life.

The way of Christ isn’t easy, it’s a road of hardship, rejection from the world, hatred from mockers, and sometimes even persecution, but all these things Christ warned of, but fear not.

Because great is your reward in heaven.

Ahh…

There we are, the REAL ‘Prosperity’ Gospel, the prosperity of HEAVEN.

Cotton Candy fluff may taste good, but it’s just sugar and air (which is 99% of what comes out all prosperity preachers) and sugary air won’t keep you sustained, eventually you will perish from lack of nutrition, your health will deteriorate, with this Positivity sunshine and rainbow skittles gospel that Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Joseph Prince, T.D. Jakes and so many others try to pass off as the real deal, you will eventually find yourself spiritually sick.

So I URGE you to BEWARE of these false prophets, they are leading many to hell with ‘love’.

But Christ with LOVE died on the cross for your sins, suffered the punishment we ALL deserve, so that we could be FREE, if we would only believe in him and his word.

May God bless you and keep you.

And remember, we want to be as true to God as we can, so that in the end we can say.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: – 2 Timothy 4:7 K.J.V.

A Daily Blog Post…

Mar

I am writing to you today to inform you that I will be blogging more frequently than I have in the past months…

DSC_0236 copy

The reason for that is, is because it appears that the hard drive is completely full on the computer I do all my audio work, media and radio show work on, so all my audio ministry projects, videos, recordings, radio shows, dramas pictures, pretty much everything that I normally do will be postponed for quite sometime until I get this settled.

By purchasing an external hard drive, now this  will take me some time to get funds to do this, so I apologize in advanced for anyone that has been keeping up with me,  I do enjoy all the dozens of things I work on putting out there, and as most everyone know, I don’t constantly ask for donations.

And when I do, I make an effort to try and at least offer you something for your contribution to my ministry, the recent thing I have accomplished is the pilot episode of my very first official audio drama “Building A Kingdom”

It is available for Digital Download.

Those of you that do make that contribution, I am ever so grateful, may God bless you greatly.

If you would like to support “Tune Productions” to help me begin producing more media material soon, you can do so by clicking below.

DONATE

100% of your donations to Tune Productions will go towards this effort and towards “Building A Kingdom”  if you are not able to donate at this time or at all, that is completely understandable your prayers would be greatly appreciated and just helping spread the word about what I’m trying do.

My mission is to bring more wholesome entertainment to families around the world, through audio drama stories, eventually television and movies as well.

Why?

“Because Family Values Matter.”

If family values matter to you and you would like to help this effort, feel free to do so by donation, prayer, or just sharing the word.

Until next time…

Are You Wealthy?

Mar

Before you answer that question, let me tell you a story.

GoldThere was a man, Frank, he worked all his life for everything he had yet he barely had nothing by the end of his life.

Everything he had worked for was taken away from him by his children, his wife had passed away three years prior to his utterly disturbing diagnosis of Pancreatic cancer.

What little he had left he gave away, he donated millions to charity and then had it put in his will that everything else go to the make a wish foundation.

His dear Anna would have wanted it that way.

Now, as he sits on an old wooden park bench all alone with a few pieces of stale bread he had gotten from his favorite bakery on fifth street near his wife’s favorite beauty parlor, he’d throw the pieces one by one, watching the birds peck away.

And all of a sudden this young man sits down next to him.
The old man quite startled by the company jumps back a bit, the younger man asks if he’s alright to which Frank replies “yes”
As he settles back down on the old wooden bench he begins to question the younger man sitting next to him.

 

“I see you have an engagement ring poking out of your coat pocket, who’s the lucky lady?”

Taken by surprise the younger man replied, “excuse me? I don’t even know your name?”

“Oh, I’m sorry, Frank. My names Frank, and you are?”

“I’m John, how’d you know abou-”

“Well you are a young man, and based on the sneakers you’re wearing with such a fine suit as that, being that your neck tie is slightly loosened, the richness of your dark hair, the texture of your skin and flawless wrinkle free face, I’d say you are about 23 years old, due to the value of the watch you’re wearing you are a rich man as well, being that you are only 23 years old wearing sneakers with such a high quality suit Id say that the money you have isn’t yours though, not entirely, you clearly didn’t get it by chance, you earned it from working on your fathers ranch, I can see that by the toned out body you have and the calluses on your hands, also the ring bulging from your coat pocket appears to be an 18 karat and if I’m not mistaken that haircut you have came from Shirley’s Beautician and Spa which would have cost you about $125.99 with a $15 tip, but of course you’re also a giver so I’m sure you donated at least $25 more to her charity fund that helps disabled veterans. The picture of you and a young girl is slightly hanging out of your coat pocket, I would assume she was your sister, but by the way you’re holding her and from how she looks at you I have to say she’s your girlfriend, based on the initials on the picture I presume her name is Louise. Anything else, John?”

“Uh… No, not at all sir…”

“Good.”

“Are you from around here Frank? I haven’t seen you before.”

“I mostly keep to myself, but you see, I’m dying John.”

“Dying? Of what?”

“Pancreatic Cancer.. I don’t have long, I want to spend the rest of my days out here, it’s where I find peace and comfort”

“I know what you mean, when I was little my dad would bring me here all the time.”

“I know, your dad didn’t always have much time for fun did he John?”

“No, you’re right, he didn’t. How did you know?”

“Well he’s a rancher, I assume he first struck it rich with oil, then he purchased cattle to further sustain himself, the cattle that when you were old enough helped him tend to. As a young boy he was always working, he only had Saturday’s off which is when he brought you here, to this park. Where you’d feed the birds on this bench, and talk about life.”

“Yeah, that’s exactly right, how do you know so much anyways Frank?”

“I’m old, John. That’s a benefit of being old, wisdom. I brought my kids here when they were younger too, they could never appreciate it though. Always wanted to go and play at the arcades with their friends.”

“Sorry to hear that sir.”

 

The old man sighed deeply as he looked out at the birds pecking away at the bread, as he goes to toss the last piece to them, something doesn’t seem right.

A sharp pain shot through his chest, up his neck and throughout his body, he stiffens all over. He tries to gasp for air but fails.

The young man next to him, surprised in a panic calls 911.

But he was too late. The old man died with that last piece of bread barely hanging out of his hand.

When the young man returned home he told his fiancé, Louise all about his experience at the park, she thought he was insane, but when he proposed to her later that night she without hesitation accepted with glee.

The story is fictional, but the moral point I hope to make, is very real.

Sometimes in life, we live all our life looking for a meaning, a purpose and a value greater than we can imagine. And while there is no doubt that there isn’t something bigger out there, sometimes, some of us never find it, because we are too caught up in the riches of the world, instead of enjoying the riches of life.

The riches of life are far greater than any riches the world could ever offer.

These riches are love, faith, family, friends, laughter, joy, peace, kindness and togetherness.

One might have all the riches of the world… But if they lack just one of the riches of life. Then sadly, without even knowing so, they are one of the poorest alive.

So I leave you with the same question I had in the beginning.
Are you wealthy? And if so, how wealthy are you?
