Jesus Won’t Accept It..

Apr
30

Hello and welcome once again to my heavenly abode, may you all be welcomed in Jesus precious name amen and Shalom.

th With all this wickedness in today’s world, with churches condoning gay marriage and Christians saying that “they are born that way” and with all this sinful nature in the world there is just one thing many people seem to forget or sadly do not pay attention to at all is that: Jesus died for the FORGIVENESS of sins not the ACCEPTANCE of sin, Jesus LOVED the ‘sinner’ but HATED the ‘sin’ we cannot condone sin. People are NOT born gay. That’s absurdity and biblically it’s an abomination. (It is not of ‘love’ rather of lust) And we as God fearing christians are to uphold his truths and not bow down to the wicked carnally mindset of man made garbage in this world.

Most tend to forget that Jesus said if we loved him we would keep his commandments which are MANY commandments.. If we deny his TRUTH and fail to warn people of the consequences of their actions biblically taught to us if they don’t TURN from their wicked ways.. If we deny that, we will be denying Jesus and if we deny Jesus he in the end will deny us. We are so consumed in this thing about ‘saving feelings’ but the thing is, God called us to be courageous, he called us to be bold, fearless he called us to save ‘souls’ not ‘feelings’. If we truly love our brother and sister in Christ we will look after them that they may not stray from the path that God has set out for us all.

He is a holy God, he is a just God, he is a jealous God with a mighty hand of wrath upon those that do not obey his commandments. But because of his loving grace if we humble ourselves and beg from him forgiveness and TURN away from our wicked ways and begin a new life where we put off the things of the old man and all things become NEW then will we be able to live sure in the salvation of our lord Jesus Christ and loving savior. He loved the world so much he died on the cross so that we could have an opportunity to CHANGE our lives and be BORN again…

Be Transformed:

Everywhere in the bible when Jesus performed his miracles and TRANSFORMED people’s lives they began a NEW life leading a NEW life with a CLEANSED soul, when he said to the woman at the well that her sins were FORGIVEN she had to go back to her first husband. She didn’t get to go back to her old ways. Jesus didn’t ACCEPT that.

He doesn’t ACCEPT sin.

He don’t ‘accept’ us AS WE ARE he accepts us as we are when we come to him KNOWING what we can BECOME in him, as what he KNOWS we could be in him if we would JUST humble ourselves and ALLOW the transformation to be done in our lives, there’s too many people playing church, playing with God. Jesus loved us all so much he died so that if we get our life on track according to his perfect plan leading a sinless and holy life we could be spared from hell, no man without holiness shall see the kingdom of God, We all have the right to live however it is that we please but one day we will ALL have to pay the cost.

People seem to forget that Jesus that was in a rage at the money changers in the synagogue, whipping and yelling at them in an holy anger and that is what we as the saints of God need to embrace, we need to embrace a LOVE to lead others to the light and see their lives transformed from the truth of God, an holy anger to defend his truth and an holy hatred toward all matter of sin and wickedness in this world

  • And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

For we are IN this world but NOT OF this world!

“ALL I KNOW IS IM NOT HOME YET THIS IS NOT WHERE I BELONG! TAKE THIS WORLD IN ALL IT’S SINFUL WICKEDNESS AND GIVE ME JESUS THIS IS NOT WHERE I BELONG!”

We are ALL called to be messengers, we are ALL called to testify and witness to others the dangers of hell especially in these times, WAKE UP SLEEPING GIANT! The church needs to awake! God is calling but many are ignoring his call Christians need not be afraid to speak his truth..

Because the thing of it is, is that christians are all too soft spoken these days.

We need not be so soft spoken that we mislead others because of misinterpretation of what we said, but we also need not speak so loudly and harshly (as the westboro baptist church members do) that we run off sinners and hardened their hearts even worse.

No, the scripture says to everything there is a season and a time for everything… And there is that time to stand bold on the word of God and not fall for the lies that these wishy washy preachers are trying to indoctrinate into our minds, Jesus didn’t pay the ultimate sacrifice for us to defy and deny him and his truth every day by leading others astray, every person that walks into our lives by how we witness to them by the TRUTH that WE know if we don’t do EVERYTHING in our power according to what it is that WE know then their blood WILL be on OUR hands!

And if that soul goes to hell because WE didn’t judge according to the scripture, then GOD will condemn us for letting them fall away from him because we KNEW better but CHOSE not to say anything to save their ‘feelings’ and when they find their ‘soul’ is lost because that christian didn’t do what HE/SHE/WE are supposed to do, it will be a horrible event to see and we will be judged for it… Jesus loves us all and if we love him we will keep his commandments and share his commandments with others…

In Conclusion:

It is our Christian duty. We are obliged by God.

And I for one will not have the blood of another persons soul on my hands, we are in the soul saving business with God, God isn’t in the “feeling saving” business if someone’s feelings get hurt, yet their soul is saved because of it then so be it.

There is a time and a place:

  • And of some have compassion, making a difference:
  • And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. (Jude 1:22-23 KJV)
  • For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10 KJV)
  • Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? (Galatians 4:16 KJV)

I am not out to please man, and we as Christians will either serve Christ or satan, we cannot sit on the fence. I’ve said this many times, we must be hot or cold. With God or against him, either we stand BOLD by his word or we are not standing at all. If I am your enemy for telling the truth, so be it I would rather be the enemy of man, then be the  enemy of God. and I will say this  again, I take much gladness in being worthy to suffer shame for his name in being the enemy of man.

I want nothing more than to see lost souls saved, but to see them saved, we must speak TRUTH. I believe God can save anybody, but they must be willing to change for him, there is NO compromise with God, only forgiveness once we turn from our evil ways. If we do not then it is hell to pay.

  • For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (Romans 1:16 KJV)

Go out, be bold, be courageous, be a servant of God.

My Inspirations…

Apr
29

I am sure there are those that might often wonder what my inspirations are, well I have quite a few actually, most of them (aside from people in my family and friends)  are actually celebrity’s in some sense,or  how about we just  say ‘famous.’

11148971_1120526994639481_1338515431_nFrom the title of this post I am sure it is very obvious that I want to tell everyone today about those people in this life that inspire me the most, the people outside of my friends and family that have helped me to see even more that if it is wanted bad enough, if it is desired long enough, and if it is beneficial to, God, you and society, then whatever that is it can be made a reality, no matter how hard any kind of enemy may come against you, no matter what odds you are facing no matter how strong the opposition and no matter how small of a chance you actually have at becoming what it is that you want to be and doing what it is that you want to do, you can make it happen.

For the first Actor inspiration in my life, I am going to have to mention one of the most known people all across the world and to think that long ago he was just some boy, living in Oklahoma, with a rough childhood, no actual dad to be a dad, and had made many mistakes before making it to a point of great success.

  • 1. Chuck Norris

Every since i was a little boy, I have always looked up to Chuck Norris and I always loved him in his most known act as Walker Texas Ranger, a show where good always would conquer evil, though there were some violent scenes (not according to me but to some people) the morals of the stories was always greater than any kind of negativity which could have ever been throw at the show or Chuck Norris himself, the Martial Arts displayed in the show and input into the show always showed a manner of great respect, dignity and character.

I love stories of how people make it against all odds and that is actually the title of one of his books which is actually an autobiography that I have read most of before and I loved seeing all the good and bad that Mr. Norris has faced in his lifetime, it is exactly what has made him the person he is today and though there are still some people that don’t like him one bit, that is just fine. He is still kicking high and doesn’t look a day over 45, isn’t that something, seeing him today is funny especially when compared to an episode of Walker TX Ranger from 20 years ago.

I had the privilege and the honor of meeting Mr. Norris awhile back, last year on October during a campaign for our current Governor ‘Greg Abbott’ who I also had the honor and privilege of meeting, Chuck Norris was as real as it can get, he was kind and caring and considerate, and even though his ‘body guards’ (whatever HE needs those for) was continuously rushing him to leave, he was taking his time with the people and after waiting in line forever I almost didn’t get to see him because the guards was wanting them to get on the plane, but he was still taking his time and making sure that everyone got a chance. When it came time for me to meet and greet Mr. Norris, I gave him one of my business cards to which he put in his pocket and handed me an autographed card of him doing a martial arts stance.

We told him how I had always watched him on TV and how he was also like a Father figure and how he had made such an impact on all of our lives, we told him of some of what I did, things were really rushed but somehow slow at the same time. He hugged me and told me to never give up, that I could make it and that maybe we would meet again, which reminds me of him being Cherokee, at the end of Walker Texas Ranger’s Series, they did not say goodbye, I believe it was said “Until we meet again.

I will always cherish that moment and maybe we will meet again.

My next two top ‘Christian ‘  inspirations in life has got to be…

  • 2. Kirk Cameron
  • 3. Ray Comfort

I decided to  combine these two because they go together like so, when I was littler I would always watch Ray and Kirk Cameron on ‘The Way Of The Master’ since Ray Comfort is more of an evangelist, even more than Kirk, I will have to say, that Ray is my evangelistic inspiration while Kirk is actually an Actor inspiration as well, but from a very strong Christian point of view, back in 2011 before I had ever went to KD college some might remember how I had mentioned that I was praying and asking God if acting was his will for me, more or less I was actually praying if KD was his will for me, I was watching Kirk on  youtube explain how Hollywood can devour people, young Christians that only want to get famous.

I remember this key note from his speech, what he said was very encouraging, because he said if you just wanted to get into acting to be famous then he was pleading with you to stay out of the business, because people that want fame will sell out quickly, but if you went in there fearing no one but God, then you could make, as he said that I remember so clearly hearing the mail run, it turns out it was a KD information package that I had previously requested but I also remember not filling everything in correctly, so it’s amazing how it came.

I took that as a sign.

More recently I have been paying more and more attention to Ray Comfort and his life, and his ministry, I am really happy actually to say that once, no, twice he has responded me on his facebook page, he is constantly replying to people on there and his heart is filled with great love for the lost and God’s people.

Last but not least, I have to mention one of my latest most greatest inspirations, I actually wouldn’t do an online radio show had it not been for coming to find out ‘more’ about this man and his story, of overcoming so much such as alcoholism, and so much more while making it against all odds, when everyone else was dying and still are waiting so anxiously for him to fail miserably, but each time they mock, he just rises a littler higher.

  • 4. Glenn Beck

My grandpa has always watched Mr. Beck, mostly way back when he was on Fox News, I remember walking into my grandparents room and my grandpa was watching Fox News and being younger I thought it was stupid to see all of those people just arguing their heads off and then there was the crazy man with bleached out spiked hair screaming about the end of the world, the crazy caliphate which is now a reality, what Obamacare would do to America which is now also a reality and so on and so on.

Turns out the ‘kook’ was actually right about more than people gave him credit for, seems to me that people always love to criticize and put down what their puny little minds just cannot seem to comprehend, however when it turns out that what some loon three years ago was saying, is now a reality, everyone want’s to get their hands on the gold story, because now it actually means something to them when it was 10 times more important to hear three years ago, but no. Nobody ever wants to take into consideration that maybe this isn’t some crazy scare tactic to panic everyone in America and to fuel the ‘Preppers’ to go out and buy more stock.

Maybe, just maybe, it’s a reality, after studying much about Mr. Beck, I found out that what he was saying three years ago is actually, exactly what we are living today, I watched all the videos of him and his critics mocking him to scorn oh how the liberal left loved and still loves to mock him, but I seen a lot of mockery from the right wing GOP as well well you can’t make everybody happy. After all of this research I quickly became fascinated more with his story and how he overcome and rose above all obstacles against all odds, as you read earlier I am a sucker for a good testimony – it turns out that only three years or less when Mr. Beck left Fox News (and everyone from all sides leaped for joy and the mockery continued) everyone was hoping that would be the very end of Mr. Beck.

However, I believe that was actually the beginning of something magnificent, it is incredible how in just three years alone he came back in a big way, in a huge way with ‘The Blaze Tv’ and ‘The Blaze Radio’ there were times when his quality wasn’t so great, and the sound was just terrible, I mean I have felt bad from time to time about not being able to get my sound right, but then I look back on where Mr. Beck came from, which brings me to the conclusion of this post.

In Conclusion:

Glenn Beck’s Radio program, and his triumphs over all the opposition and his motivation to continue on against all of the odds, is what most encouraged me to begin my radio online, though I have always had such a talent within me, it would have not come out as soon if I had not studied the fascinating Testimony of Beck, I still watch him from time to time when the Blaze is offered as a preview on Dish and I even got a free month subscription awhile back to watch him discuss ‘The Root’ of Jihad, that was incredible.

There are a lot of things I don’t necessarily agree with Mr. Beck on, however I believe that his news network is a very trusted and validated source, with legitimacy always backing up himself with facts and evidence when he speaks of such global events, that is why Mr. Beck is an inspiration to me.

If there was anyone in life that I had a chance to met for just one day, or if I was dying and could see one person, I would choose to see Glenn Beck for I do believe he is a very real, genuine, kindhearted and loving person.

Now I hope all of you little ones have learned something out of this today, and hopefully from me sharing their life stories and how their testimonies effect me personally, perhaps we can all become a little more inspired today may you all be blessed abundantly beyond your wildest imaginations, thank you for reading my blog post today it was very nice to write it finally and until we meet again.

Strangers Here…

Apr
28

There are moments when this world can be incredibly amazing and other times when it can be incredibly disappointing, there are times when all things are as alright as they can be and then there are times when everything comes crumbling down like a house of cards, and what are we supposed to do then?

the-stranger1I have always had a very real grasp on the fact that as a Christian in this world there is absolutely a 100% chance that you are not going to fit in anywhere and that might even count for some churches as well, I have contemplated this fact many times that we as Christians and we as the children of an almighty powerful all knowing God, we aren’t meant to be of this world, we are only meant to be in it for a short time, if it feels like from time to time that we haven’t been doing well and as if we will never fit in. Well, that’s because we won’t, no matter how hard we try and no matter what we do, no matter what it is that we try and convince ourselves or no matter how nice we are to people we will never truly feel at home, and it’s a sad thing in many instances but at the same time it is an amazing thing that we should be exceedingly grateful for.

Moving to Texas hasn’t been something easy for me and my family, then with all the hurt from personal family problems that hasn’t helped any either and as matter of fact it’s made things worse for us, I still love Texas, but no matter how hard we try we just haven’t been able to make that personal community type of connection with those around us, no matter what it is that we say or do we can’t get that here, and as matter of fact we have never really had something like that. But at least we got to meet people and make some type of connection with them, here we’ve struggled to even do that, from my point of view that is, because I personally love being able to go somewhere and recognize someone I have met before, I may seem real shy and to a very great extent I am however, I enjoy being able to make those connections.

Travelin’ Through This World Of Woe –

There is an old folk song that I am certain I have mentioned many times before and it expresses some of these real issues about how we are only strangers that are traveling through this world of woe, we are only passing through on our journey to be with our Father in heaven, we are only here for a small period of time and if we don’t take that into consideration we could let ourselves be lost to the fact that even though this world is not meant for us, we are meant to be a light for this world, while Jesus is THE light, we know very well that we are to be an example for him, there are some of us who have had our guts beat out and our hands burned in the fire, others have walked so far that they can’t hardly walk anymore from all the blisters on their feet and then there are the people have been through it all.

We all have a story my friends, we all have a destiny, we all have a much greater purpose than to simply ‘belong’ here, because we can’t possible be a part of this world with all it’s perverted wickedness, with all of it’s evil ways, we can’t be a part of the true world. However, just because we aren’t able to be some part of a world that’s filled with horrible things that doesn’t mean that everyone in this world is bad, it doesn’t mean that everyone out there isn’t reachable in some way shape or form, and I think once we all get a hold of the fact that we aren’t meant to belong here but rather meant to be an example for others and to make a difference and an impact while we are here, well. I think when we figure that out then that is when we will have it all figured out, actually I fully do believe that once we figure that out, that is when we will be someone stronger than we have ever been in our entire life time.

In Conclusion:

It’s hard, I know it’s hard, you know it’s hard. We all know that it is hard. But just because something is hard doesn’t mean that is completely impossible of doing, it just means that it’ll take a little more time to finish than it normally would. My friends, I know that there are those who have gone through the worst possible trials ever, but like I always say, it’s important to remember that when you are going through something bad, the good that came out of the last time you went through a rough patch. It’s vital that we take into consideration all of the little things, it is vital that we give God all the praise at all times, because it is one thing to praise him when life is fine and good, but when we can praise God when we have literally ‘nothing’ of this world, that is when we will be able to say that we have reached an extremely special relationship with Christ, and I know some of you reading this now, you can do it, you have done it and all that this trial to you is, is just another stepping stone to take.

We may never fit in this world, that doesn’t mean people of the world won’t like us, it just means that it’ll be harder for us to be liked simply because of how strong a stance we take for Christ. People can either hate you, love you, or simply respect you. But what’s always important is that we stand for truth in love with great boldness like we are taking our last breath today, it’s important that we realize what is important to us and once we find that out it is even more of an importance to actually make that something known, shout it out from the roof tops, don’t be afraid, don’t be scared, don’t be shy and for goodness sakes don’t be ashamed. We’re just strangers here, we’re all strangers here, it’s alright if you can’t stop the tears that you cry, because someday we will touch the face of our God and the sorrow will disappear.

Until then “We’re Strangers Here.”

Grace – Faith – Works

Apr
27

I was talking with a Mormon friend of mine the other day (yes I said Mormon, you can come out of hiding he won’t bite) and we had began discussing how there is a great difference in believing that Grace alone saves you and believing that through Grace you are saved for the workmanship of the Lord, many people tend to shout that Mormons believe in a ‘Work To Gain Heaven’ sort of doctrine and I can tell you this first hand.

Screen shot 2011-09-09 at 08.44.02They believe that the bible tells us that we are saved by grace and only grace, no amount of work we do could ever actually save us not in a million years, because our works aren’t God’s works. Our ways are not his ways and we couldn’t possibly think that our own dirty works could save us, they can’t and that is what they believe, they believe that we were saved by grace and that it is a gift of God not of our own self in any way. And they believe what the bible tells us, they believe that rather than being saved BY works we were saved FOR the work of the Lord, workmanship is what the scripture calls it and though I do not support or promote Mormonism in any way, I have to say this on the matter of grace, faith and works, I have to agree, with the Mormon.

Bible Verse:
  •  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
  • Not of works, lest any man should boast.
  • For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. – Ephesians 2:8-10 KJV

If my understanding is absolutely clear, which I always try to have as clear of an understanding as humanly possible of other peoples way of perception about certain issues. That is for myself and that is for them as well, so I don’t say something that they didn’t and so that I do not say anything wrong about them or anything that would make myself look like a complete fool in front of everyone, so with that said let me repeat myself if I may. If I am fully understanding in what my friend and I discussed, what I am about to explain next he will agree with it without one problem at all, and if we choose to disagree or disbelieve it then we may be in great danger depending on how exactly we look at it, because it is important and it’s something that can confuse people.

Let’s break it up into the three categories and discuss each of them individually starting with the first one.

GRACE –

It is undeniably clear that we are saved by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and by his grace ALONE, we know that if it were not for his grace that is exceeding in sufficiency or us all that we would be far gone from this world, as matter of fact I don’t even believe that we’d still be here if it weren’t for the loving grace of Abba-Father God, many times we go through this life unknowing of how effective his grace is in our day to day life. We don’t even realize that aside from having eternal life by his grace that his loving mercy is actually what carries all of us through the work day, it helps keeps us going when we are at our lowest, and all that time we thought it was a halls pep me up cough drop, or our 5hr energy, that gatorade sports drink we had earlier, or whatever, when in reality it was God’s amazing grace giving us the strength to make it through.

Bible Verse:
  • My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. – 2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV

His Grace saves, it strengthens, emboldens, encourages, gives hope, sheds light, picks us up when we are down and carries us when we are too weak to move on, it gives us knowledge in wisdom, and power that we wouldn’t of had otherwise, his grace is truly amazing and it is sufficient for us all.

FAITH –

When we are weak and it feels are if there is no way out we must always have ‘faith’ to get us through, without faith in God’s ability to help us in our dire times of need then it will be ten times more impossible to make it out, there is many sayings about faith and many ways that people can view it, but the bible tells us that faith can save us, faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins so that we could have eternal life, faith that he has given us eternal salvation by grace as a gift if we would only accept it through faith.

Bible Verse:
  • Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 KJV

It has been said that with faith it doesn’t make things easy, it makes them possible, and the more you stop to think about that then you will begin to find that to be more and more true then we might even realize, because we know that life can get incredibly hard at times and it may seem as if it is impossible to continue on. As if it is impossible for us to ever be in any other place in our life then the current hardship that we are in right now, but by having faith in God we know that on our own it is impossible, but with him ALL things are possible and this gives us hope, it gives us strength, it gives us the power to keep on going, because it will never be easy, nothing good is ever easy but it isn’t impossible.

With faith in God all things are made possible.

WORKS –

So what exactly does works mean to us if we are saved by grace and not by works? Where exactly does works even come in, or do they even come in the equation at all? Well yes, they do, I believe that works play a big part in a Christians life, I believe that the bible tells us that we are saved for ‘good’ works as we seen in the scriptures above, we aren’t saved by our works because our works aren’t worth one penny to God. However, if we truly have faith that he died for our sins then we will exercise our faith daily by doing the works that he has ordained us to do, the works that he commands us to do for his kingdom.

Bible Verses:
  • What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
  • If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
  •  And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
  •  Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
  • Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. – James 2:14-18 KJV

Some very powerful and controversial words from James there now isn’t it? It seems to me that they are so controversial that people just tend to ‘mentally’ rip those verses out of the bible and ignore them completely, but we can’t just highlight what we like and ignore what we don’t like because we need to take in the wholeness of his holy word, if we don’t then we would be lacking in spiritual nutrition and this in the long run would not be a very good thing.

In Conclusion:

Everything in the word blends together in a perfect harmony and nothing contradicts itself, it may seem at times contradictory if it is read in the wrong context but it is not in any way at all, the scripture goes together beautifully and it does so for the betterment of our spirituality – with God himself. The subject I have chosen to talk of today can many times become quickly misunderstood by others if they take it in the wrong context, but if they look at it according to the scripture for what it really is then they will see exactly what I am trying to say and they will even see exactly how Mormonism see’s it.

Paul Said:
  • What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. – Romans 6:15 KJV

I believe that it is a matter of living your life as holy as possible for Christ, you may make mistakes every now and then and because of his amazing grace he will forgive you for ‘mistakes’ but the thing is, we can’t purposely intentionally sin after knowing of the truth of the gospel – we can’t ‘willingly’ sin, some people say that we willingly sin everyday but really we do not, because there are still people who do not truly know that they are sinning and because of this if they find Christ when they do realize that they are sinning and claim to believe in him at the same time yet continue on in their sin then they haven’t truly been saved, what this post is to say to everyone today or rather to make everything think of is this.

We are saved by grace, through faith and not of ourselves or any works of our own doing, yet we are saved for the workmanship of Jesus Christ that he has ordained for us, there are verses that tell us us that people will come to God saying “we did many works in your name” and he will turn to them and say “depart from me ye worker of iniquity, I never knew you” but why exactly would that be my dearest of all friends? Their heart wasn’t isn’t, you see, what this post is to insinuate today is that, having a relationship with Jesus is about an equal balance, it’s about serving him in spirit and in truth, it’s about walking and talking and talking and walking, it’s about grace it’s about faith and it’s about doing his works for the kingdom, what this post is to say is that without works in a Christians life then their faith isn’t likely true to the Lord and it is also to say that only Christ saves us, not works.

And at the same time it is to say that we will be judged by our works as well, it eally makes perfect beautiful harmonizing sense if you look at it for what it truly is and if you just did then God bless you my brothers and sisters in Christ, thank you for reading today’s incredibly long post and I hope that you have a blessed rest of your week.

Until next time…

Fears Of The Church…

Apr
24

Oh, hello there, I didn’t see you there. Welcome back to my heavenly abode, I was just getting ready for a new post, if you would like to join me you are more than welcome to, pull up a seat and get comfortable.

11146085_1117440251614822_1963915829_nI would like to talk with you today about three main fears of the modern church today, and while this can be a very touchy subject for some people, just because something was a touchy subject hasn’t yet stopped me from speaking about such issues before and it won’t start now, so let’s just get started with identifying the three main fears of the church today, why don’t we?

  •  1. The BLOOD

It is a very key factor in the scripture that there is great POWER in his blood, yet many of the modern day churches seem to continue on in removing the ‘blood’ out of their songs, their messages and even in their average conversations with one another, but why is it that people are so afraid to speak of his blood that was shed so we could all have eternal salvation?

  • For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. – Matthew 26:28 KJV
  • In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: – Colossians 1:14 KJV
  • And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is NO remission.

The old song goes that there is POWER in the blood, and it is true, we as Christians have the authority to claim his blood in whatever situation we are in, we are saved by his blood, we are cleansed by his blood we are made new through his blood and his blood alone, demons flee at the sight of his blood, without being covered in his blood we are doomed and I for one am not ashamed of his blood.

However, the blood can be combined with another feared power of the modern church.

  • 2. The NAME Of JESUS

Through the word of God we also know that there is GREAT power found only in the NAME of our Lord and Savior JESUS Christ, power strong enough to make demons tremble at the very utterance of it, and power strong enough to heal the sick in body, powerful enough to cleanse us of all our sins, a name with such power that when we call upon it and profess to live by it daily we are saved from death, hell and the grave, yet so many in the modern Church for whatever reason whether it be political or outright fear in spirit they take great precautions in mentioning the precious name of Jesus in a way that would issue a command of authority.

Scripture tells us:

  • And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. – Matthew 28:18 KJV
  • Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

So many ‘Christians’ claim to believe these things, but when it comes down to the going getting rough they don’t really wanna get ‘tough’ in their faith, they deny Jesus and as it says in timothy, they say they know God yet they deny the power thereof and this is sadly what we are seeing in the modern church today.

There is one last combined power that MUST be combined with the power of the blood and Jesus name.

  • 3. The HOLY GHOST

Those of us (like myself) that have experienced it can only go from that, there is really no other way to try and describe the feeling that comes from the power of the Holy Ghost, we can try but no one will really truly ever understand it until they have come to experience it themselves, and while some people think that it’s demonic work of satan they are wrong, and they will just have to take it up with Jesus.

  • But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. – Acts 1:8 KJV
  • The Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. – Acts 3:6 KJV
  • How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. – Acts 10:38 KJV
  • And it came to pass that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him.

In Conclusion:

From the scriptures above we have learned that through the blood of Jesus, through the name of Jesus, with the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to lay hands on the sick and heal them, not of our own power but of the great power of God that only comes from calling on his name, when the blood of Jesus is made combined with his name and the Holy Ghost then we know that great things can happen.

William Booth (Founder Of Salvation Army) Once Said:

“The Chief danger of the 20th century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and Heaven without Hell.” –

My friends we have arrived to the point where the modern church is filled with such fear to mention any of those key factors in the above quote, especially hell.

  1. Fear to even mention the BLOOD.
  2. Fear to even pray in JESUS NAME.
  3. Fear to even talk about the POWER of the HOLY GHOST.

Brothers, Sisters, there is nothing to fear when it comes to these three key factors of our beliefs, as matter of fact above all else we should be encouraged by knowing that we have authority over this demonic world through his blood, his name and the Holy Ghost, we should rejoice in the fact that these core beliefs make us stand out and stand bold for him, as a bright light reflecting him and his TRUE power.

We must all strive to be better each day, until next time my dear friends remember, continue on in fighting the good fight of faith, so that in the end you may be able to say 2 Timothy 4:7

Not Of This World…

Apr
23

Welcome back to my little heavenly abode my friends, brothers, sisters, webanites, foe and all other alien life forms alike, I would just like to wish you all a blessed day whatever time it is wherever you may be in this world.

not-of-this-world-graspI would like to talk about something that I am most known for when it comes to discussing this topic, often I can be ridiculed for standing up for my faith, whether that comes from people that ‘claim’ to believe like me or people that are your everyday net trolls it doesn’t make any difference, opposition is opposition, however I have learned to be more strong and courageous while making do with whatever is thrown my way, and I believe that this is what we all need to be doing more often.

So many times today in the pulpits ‘ministers’ are trying to make this amusement park out of the church, adding bowling alleys, basketball courts, ice hockey, tv rooms, all to keep your kids happy anything to keep people coming so the ‘Pastors’ can keep getting their tithes, and while I am not against having some type of activity for the youth I think if you have all of that in a church then sometimes a pastor might want and ask himself if those people are really coming for Christ or not.

Isn’t it a shame that so many lost people out there might think they are coming to Christ and they might really love God in their hearts, and they probably even have a great desire to learn about what his will really is but because of preachers like these they are often led down a path that will eventually put them straight in the pits of hell and for the most part it isn’t even their fault, all we can do is pray that God open their eyes sooner then later, because I believe it would be awful for anyone to go to hell.

Especially when they think they are doing God’s work…

Speak Out:

When in reality they are really following mans fleshly desires rather than God’s holy missions of greatness and his will of all mankind, but isn’t there something that we as Christians could do for these ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ of the Church of Christ? Well yes there is actually, we could quit standing around like a bunch of juniors with our phones in our hands recording a bully torment a smaller student and we could try and help the smaller student with what is known as inevitable truth, you see the old saying goes for all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to stay back and do nothing. (Not exactly a full on quote but it’s close enough.)

We need to be bold for our fellow man, we need to have a Christ like love and I’ve mentioned this many times in the past but love doesn’t mean that you try every way possible not to hurt a persons feelings, love means you are willing to stand out and stand loud, love means that you are willing to do whatever necessary to make that friend of yours listen. Love means that even if you know the truth might hurt your friend you will tell it to them anyways because you love them, because you want to be completely honest with them no matter what, and that my dear friends is how you stand out in this world, that is how you speak out, in love.

In Conclusion:

Scripture tells us this and this is one of my favorite verses when it comes to the discussion about whether or not Christians should be of this world:

  • And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. – Romans 12:2 KJV

Separation from the world means doing the unthinkable, believing the impossible, living the most abnormal life and serving the most high God, Jesus Christ, living in this world while not being a part of it can sometimes be hard for us but at the same time if we truly believe that the bible is true we know that we were never meant to be a part of THIS world anyways, this earth yes, but this world as it is, I don’t believe that was God’s full plan, but we as man made it corrupt.

Thankfully God made a plan of salvation for us which goes by way of the cross, and I have seen countless times where many people crucify those who promote the cross but to me that is sheer foolishness, we as Christians in any way do not promote or worship the cross, yes it was a sign of pain and agonizing death for Christ, but without that cross, without what he did on that cross we wouldn’t have the ability to make things right with him.

The bible tells us that the preaching of the cross is foolishness to this sinful world, but to us it is hope and strength, an anchor for us in our most troubling storms, while living in this world is not easy and not being a part of it can be even harder at times, we must continue on fighting the good fight of faith, because it’ll be worth it after all..

Until next time…

An 80’s Comeback!

Apr
22

Whatever happened to predictability, the milkman, the paper boy, evening TV. You miss your old familiar friends, but waiting just around the bend, and now everywhere you look, everywhere you go, there just so happens to be some old show coming back to life, and now it appears to me that the 80’s are finally making a comeback with one of my favorite shows of all time and it couldn’t be a better timing than now!

fhFull House! Or should I say, “Fuller” House will be coming to Netflix sometime next year and I am SO excited every since the first time I heard about this on the internet and from a family member. I have been a long time fan of the show, obviously not when it first came out because I’m not old enough for that but I feel like I am. With Tim Allen being back on TV with his new show ‘Last Man Standing’ and appearances of ‘Rosanne’ on ‘Cristela’ and with the recent spin off of ‘Boy Meets World’ – ‘Girl Meets World’ I have to say that this is the perfect timing for such a show like Full House to make a comeback, I believe that in the older versions of Full House and Boy Meets World there was a great sense of morality, this strong ethical teaching deeply rooted in each show that was there to help us all grown and learn.

It’s what made these shows so special to me and I believe it’s what made them special to you as well, and though it is certain that times have definitely had a dramatic change since those days, such a drastic change that there are some who fear this show won’t have the same moral teachings in it that it had on it’s first go around, however I still have much hope and I believe that in such a time as these we can only pray to God that they do instill those same moral teachings in this new show because we need that now, far more than we ever needed them when it first aired, I have faith that there is a certain cast member who will not sign a contract to something that she can’t morally feel OK with.

D.J. Tanner Is Back –

Candace Cameron Bure, the little sister of our favorite Evangelist/Movie/TV Actor – Kirk Cameron, she has a strong moral conviction that she hasn’t been at all afraid to stand on and this shows me that I can trust that ‘Fuller’ House will indeed carry out those same moral ethics that we so long ago seen in the joy and comfort of our own living rooms, I believe that it will HAVE to be ‘fuller’ of love, compassion, caring, values and family ethics then ever before, I do not in any sense fully understand why I feel so strongly about this and it’s too early to tell, but I do know that if you’re a Full House fan and if they truly are bringing this show back for ‘the fans’ then I just have to trust that they will carry out the same type of moral compass that we used to see.

The focus will be on D.J. Tanner who is Widowed and pregnant, alongside with her sister Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and her best friend of all times our one and only ‘goofy’ Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona, who all move in to help take care of D.J.’s two boys — the rebellious 12-year-old J.D. and neurotic 7-year-old Max — and her soon-to-arrive baby.

There are also discussions of the other original cast members making appearances on the show which still remain open and unanswered at this moment, however it is confirmed that our beloved Uncle Jesse will be guest starring on the show from time to time and the first episode of the 13 episode ‘Netflix’ Season will be a 1hr long reunion show which should of course prove to be very interesting.

In Conclusion:

What are some key lessons that we can learn from today’s post? As you know my main objective isn’t to focus on a single theme or subject but rather to in a way overview all things that have to do with God, Politics and LIFE, that’s what I do here and if you read up about me then you will find that this has been my main goal since the beginning of this site, I think the key lessons we can gain from this is that there is a great desire and hunger for those good old time Family Sitcoms on TV again where we could gather around our Television set in the comfort of our own living rooms as a ‘Family’ and watch something that we all could watch ‘together’, something that little kids and adults could watch alike.

Something where we aren’t having to turn off the screen from the perversion of sex crazed maniacs or having to mute or cover the children’s ears from the outright and sheer vulgarity of those foolishly foul mouthed morons that apparently only have one word in their vocabulary that starts with a capital letter F, is it not disgusting that our movies and a lot of TV shows have been degraded to such idiocy?

Such immorality and pure indecency, it is absolutely despicable in every way and I for one cannot understand why it is that we so mindlessly support anything like that, why is it that we allow our values to be completely compromised just so that we can have some kind of entertainment? Do I watch movies with cursing in it? There are times that I do yes, however before I do I make sure that there is a greater moral to the story, like the recent ‘American Sniper’ it’s about an American Soldier, there is always cursing in movies like that and it was about someone real.

A person that served our country time and time again when we needed him the most he and many others were there to rise to the cause and the least that I could do is see that movie in some type of respect to him, because the moral of that story was greater than the cursing, however, the amount of vulgarity on our home TV screen is far different than that of the silver screen, because it is up the places like ‘ABC’ ‘ABC FAMILY’ ‘CBS’ ‘NBC’ and all of them to make an effort to provide us with good wholesome entertainment and it is up to us to choose wisely in what we entertain ourselves with.

Because there are many shows allowed on there aren’t that friendly for families, filled with dirty jokes and inappropriate comments, it’s ridiculous, but that’s why I was excited when Tim came back on TV, and when Boy Meets World followed behind bringing that same type of moral compass to ‘Girl Meets World’ and I do believe that we will all end each episode of the ‘Full’ House Netflix season ‘fuller’ of love, joy, and that sweet butterfly feeling deep in our stomach’s.

Thanks to all who have read.

Until next time…

Be Of Good Courage

Apr
21

Hello there, once again, welcome back to the blog, I hope that you have all been uplifted in Jesus name this past weekend and I pray that this post blesses you.

Book

Today I would like to talk about what it means to be of good courage, all in the word we can find in the OT and the NT where we are constantly being reminded to be of good courage, Christ told us to do so because he had overcome the world, and if we put all of our trust in him and him alone then we can too.

When we are of good courage scripture also tells us that he shall give us strength if we HOPE in the Lord, it is also said in his word that with men it is impossible but with GOD ALL things are POSSIBLE, and lastly the word tells us that we can do ALL things through Christ who gives us STRENGTH.

How refreshing is that my friends? I suppose that there is someone at this time in need of an uplifting message and I intend to present one to you all today, did you happen to know that God is leading you and guiding you in whatever it is that you are going through at this time, he is there even if it doesn’t seem like he is watching after you and though it seems like he does not care, that couldn’t be farther from the truth, because we know that he died on the cross for us, suffered and was tortured because of LOVE.

WALK ON:

So I believe he finds it somewhat offensive when any of us even consider to utter the very word’s “God don’t care” I think it actually gives him some amount of dissatisfaction and disappointment and I believe that it hurts him to hear such a thing, especially after he has endured all that he has.

However, no matter how tough things may get or no matter how bad our circumstances may seem we can never give up, we can never surrender to the enemies will and we can never stop and turn back from this path that we have already traveled too far on now. What we MUST do is to walk right on with our head held high and our eyes on Christ.

Fighting the good fight of faith, many people feel that the fight of faith isn’t to be fought outside of our homes, or in any physically way, and while it is indeed a spiritual battle first and foremost, we can use our earthly body that God gave us for his purposes on this earth however it may be and while Christ should always reign first I believe we also have a great responsibility to make this world a better place in any way we can.

We are most certainly to be IN this world but NOT OF it, however, that does not mean we can not contribute to the betterment of humanity.

In Conclusion:

When you are of good courage your heart will be strengthened,  you have put your hope in the Lord, because with him ALL things are most certainly POSSIBLE and through him and him ALONE you can do all things which in turn will strengthen you even more, both physically and spiritually.

I hope that today’s post has blessed you in some way, whether that be big or small I pray that you are uplifted to continue on in another day, and I do know that these are dark times we are living, but let us not dwell too much on the darkness that is, and this is to come, rather let us focus on Christ’s love, let us focus on his glory and let us focus on the sacrifices that he has made for us so that we might be saved.

Until next time my long distant friends, I wish you a blessed life, make sure you read his word daily, taking on the whole armor of his word and do not be afraid, for he is with you.

Forgiving – Learning

Apr
20

In this life we are often faced with many hard decisions to make as human beings, one instance might be having to forgive someone.
forgiveness

We experience many events in our life since the time that we are born, but one of the most traumatizing events has to be when we have been brutally lied to or when someone deliberately hurts us and breaks our trust with them when all that we have ever done is love and respect them while treating them with kindness.

In life we have to many times learn to forgive and other moments in our lives we have to forgive and learn, what exactly is this supposed to mean? I will explain later on, but first I want to purpose a question that many of us may wonder from time to time, (say new believers that is) is it at all mandatory that we as Christians should be so willing to forgive anyone and everyone no matter what?

The answer to that question is yes, however at the same time I must point out that forgiveness doesn’t mean we forget, it means we can forgive and learn from our mistakes so that we don’t make them again and fall into the same dark pit of pain.

Fool me once:

The old saying often goes like this ‘Fool me once, shame on you’ but ‘Fool me twice, shame on me!’ you see we cannot be so foolish to let others take advantage of us simply because we are trying to follow in Christ’s example, forgiving someone doesn’t mean that we forget about the wrong that they have done to us in the past, rather it is us saying that we have gotten over the incident and we have moved on but that we have ALSO learned from those events and we won’t be so careless in the future.

I don’t know why everyone says that you have to forgive and forget, did Christ do all of that? Ok sure maybe he did, but you see we aren’t all perfect and we aren’t all like Christ, the best we can do is strive to be more and more like him everyday, but if we find it hard to be with someone that has wronged us then that is completely ok, yes they may be 100% saved and sanctified but that still doesn’t mean we have to move in with them.

We can love them from a distance, that is just fine, because for some of us we are not that strong, and for some of us we will have to wait until the day that Christ comes back home to allow those people back into our life and if they are in heaven that is fine by me for I  certainly would be glad if they got their life right with God.

But until the day comes that God wipes the tears from our eyes, we don’t have to hold on to grudges, but we most certainly don’t have to let people that have harmed us multiple times back into our lives and as matter of fact that would be completely foolish.

In Conclusion:

Is Forgiveness absolutely necessary? Yes it absolutely is and here is the reason why, it is written that we as people cannot be saved until we forgive those that have wronged us as Christ himself has forgave us for our sins, and until we can learn to forgive, which isn’t easy let’s be honest, but it isn’t impossible either because we know from the word that ALL things are POSSIBLE with GOD.

And until we can forgive, we are not saved.

Why is it that so many people hold such anger and bitterness in their hearts I will never know, I can understand trials and tribulations that some people might have gone through but I myself have underwent my fair share of pain and not once have I ever decided that God wasn’t enough for me, and actually, it’s the darkest times that happens to bring me closer to the light.

Because of that I am not a bitter person I am a better person, as one of my friends on Facebook once told me, and I have come to know that yes Christians are supposed to be kind, loving, forgiving and Christ like but that never means that we are supposed to allow people to outright trample all over us like we are dirt.

We are to be wise, and as matter of fact Christ would have wanted it that way, be not deceived brethren, learn to forgive, and forgive and learn.

Until next time…

I Dream Of..

Apr
17

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, whatever time it is wherever you are and whoever you are I would just like to take this moment now to introduce you to my humble abode of the web.

6787315-dreamy

Ever dream of what it might be like to live in a world where there is so much joy that everyone gets along with each other without a single fight? I do, (though that would be a dream) though I would have to guess that it’s too much to wish for, there never can be true peace in this world, because someone will hate the other for anything they set their mind to, but It really cannot possibly hurt us that much to wonder now could it?

Perhaps it could but I believe that is for another day, moving on to much greater and even brighter imaginations of the mind, do you ever dream of what it might be like someday to finally reach the other side and see your long lost relative? The one that was on their way to church that night who happened to get brutally killed from a drunk driver, or how about that young Marine that had so dedicated himself to his faith and then took up arms to defend it in war coming back home to be respectfully buried? Perhaps he wasn’t a Marine, maybe Air Force, Navy or Army, but regardless their specific military affiliation I am sure it is something many family members and friends of passed young soldiers wonder from time to time, what it might be like to see them one day.

Or have you ever dreamed of going to Australia, Italy, France, England, Spain, Brazil, Hawaii, or any of those great places? Has the thought ever even crossed your mind when you think about all the amazing adventures that you could have traveling the world, meeting new people, seeing,  eating, smelling and feeling all kinds of new things, the way the ocean smells, looks and feels when a nice little breeze blows a small little wave into your direction, or maybe the rich earth characteristics that belong to the cultural country of Spain? Maybe just having some Fish and Chips near the a form of water in England? That’s my dream some day, I think that it would be neat to travel and also to write about those travels.

Do You?

How about this, do you ever even dream at all? I’m sure you must dream at some point because it is something that pretty much every person does whether they even realize it or not, dreaming of a new car or a hot dog with your favorite toppings, it doesn’t have to be some huge majestic dream any will do really. As long as you are a dreamer, as long as you set your goals as high as possible even if you don’t always reach them they will always be there and no matter what if you keep trying with great determination, you might just succeed.

Not everyone will succeed though, but it doesn’t mean we can’t still dream, we can always make time for that, because no matter what deep inside we will always have an imagination, without it we are pretty much non human at that point. Imagination gives us the power to envision the impossible and ‘DO IT’ without that we wouldn’t have what he have today, and we couldn’t possibly be talking with each other on our personal computer devices right now.

Because Steve Jobs and his friends imagined a world where anyone would be able to purchase one of their very own computers, and while people thought they were crazy in thinking that, look at us now, pretty much everyone has some type of computer device, I’m pretty sure that way back then even they couldn’t imagine how big an outcome it would have on the world, though I’m pretty sure that Jobs could have, he just had that drive.

THINK – IMAGINE – PURSUE – Nathan Tune

I think that will be my theme next year and I believe I will stick with it for awhile too, because to survive we must first THINK of something wonderful, then we must IMAGINE it’s reality and finally we must PURSUE it into existence.

Last but not least…

I dream of a President, a man that isn’t afraid to lead courageously and vigorously, a man that isn’t some career politician but a man with principals, a President that’s real, can you even comprehend what it would be like to have that? To have a REAL leader in the WhiteHouse, in charge of this country? I dream of someone that has a proven record to stand for liberty, freedom, justice, equality and American Exceptionalism, is there such a man?

I believe there is, and while it is left up to each of us as individuals to make our own choice in this life, I myself strongly and firmly believe that TX Sen. Ted Cruz Is that man, I know there are many who may not feel that way but I for one am tired of having my principals compromised just so that a ‘Party’ can win, we must not allow ourselves to be faced with the lesser of two evils, we have a choice to make and it is our responsibility to God and Country to make the right choice. 

In Conclusion: 

I dream of many things, who doesn’t? But at this moment right now more than ever, I dream of a President that fears God first and wants to do what’s right for everyone in this country and I do know that views differ about the candidate I’ve chosen to fully support, I can’t imagine taking anything less than strong firm principled people that aren’t only focused on ‘winning’

But are also focused on fighting ‘FOR THE PEOPLE’ don’t get me wrong, there are a few others I have in mind if hypothetically my candidate was to lose the primaries, but for that to happen the others I have in mind would have to win over the cronies, I believe that there used to be a time when Americans loved God and Country, when politics and God went hand in hand yet religion wasn’t made political rather we had a great moral nature and no one was forced to believe what they didn’t want to believe rather we had a strong ethical generation of people that loved each other and wanted what was best for their country, being someone young born in this generation even though we are blessed with a lot more ease, I sometimes wonder why I wasn’t born in a better era.

This time period is just too wicked and evil for me, but I am able to dream of more than just this world as it is, I dream of this world becoming something better and together we can make that happen.

Until next time…
