LIFE (It’s Precious)

Apr
14

Good afternoon people, good morning, good evening, whatever time it may be for you wherever you are and whoever it is that you might be I would like to personally welcome you to this blog.

DDD

A very special edition to this blog indeed, you know  even though  I may be quite young I have been noticing that more often people these days are beginning to less and less take heed to  one  of the most important gifts we have in this life which would be LIFE itself, now I know that many people may suffer and live without the basic needs that they should most definitely have but if you talk with many of those people (which I have before), they will tell you that they are really mostly happy to be alive, which is amazing because there are people that have SO much, yet take everything they have for granted, including their life and even others.

But why would there even be cause for such a thing? Do they not even know or can they not even begin to comprehend how precious life really is? All around this globe there are people out there who are fighting each day to keep living because it means something to the, life means something to them, they have family, friends, jobs, dreams and goals that they have yet to accomplish, they have so much left to do that they don’t want to give up so easily because it is something where they value it to the point they are willing to endure the pain of sickness as long as it means that they will continue to live.

It’s Beautiful:

It really is beautiful, sadly most people don’t really ever get to experience the way that we all should, most people aren’t able to experience it’s full potential because everyone is too busy with work or whatever else they have going on, and they forget how precious life really is, people can quickly become selfish and will unknowingly even take life so that they can continue living theirs the way that they want to without being interrupted, but really is that the society that we have become? I suppose it is.

Life begins at the moment of conception, that is when we are first brought into existence and then for 9 months we live in our mothers womb and then all of a sudden we are ready to come out and face this world, the cry of a baby as it is brought into this world is said to be one of the most life changing experiences for people, seeing life at one of it’s finer moments when a new person is being given to us, a gift from God really.

So who are we to say that this new existence doesn’t have a right to continue on in this world like we all have? Are we somehow better than that baby? I’d like to say that we aren’t any better than that baby because that is where we all came from, we couldn’t scream out in a frantic tone begging for someone to hear us, to please not take us out, to please allow us to be born, we couldn’t for we didn’t even know any language at all, we were helpless, yet someone decided it was right to let us live, so who are we to decide anything less for someone else?

What Is There To Miss?

You know this life has a lot to offer us if we would only pay attention to all of it’s best attributes but we won’t because we are too busy focused on ourselves and what WE want at the time and I’m not saying that it isn’t ok to want something for yourself every once in awhile but lately the people of this world have become so consumed with their own self that they don’t really care who it is they might hurt along their way and it’s really quite sad because we were all meant to be more than what we are becoming, we were meant to be greater, yet we continue down a path of such darkness.

Taking for granted the smallest of things, you know to be granted bigger things in life we must first show responsibility for the smaller things, we must first show that we can appreciate the smallest of items because if we can’t appreciate something that isn’t worth much, how are we ever going to be able to appreciate the finer things in life? We most likely won’t, if we are given the best that life has to offer first then we will most likely become reckless and careless of everything, we will lose all sight of right and wrong, we won’t care how much we hurt those even those that we claim to love, we will be ungrateful, hateful, angry and bitter, we will be lost for quite sometime.

But if we could only take consideration for the littlest of thing, like the way the wind so gently can often blow the leaves through the trees, or just how the air feels on your face, how the roses smell so incredibly amazing, how the water glistens from a distance so elegantly, the way that the birds sing their songs early of the morning, the way laughter makes us sound and feel, or how it might sound to us, the way music can sound to the mind, spirit and soul, oh how wonderful that it can make us feel, imagine all of those fun activities like playing outside in the playground or going snowboarding in the winter, surfing in the summer, scraped knees from learning to ride your bicycle for the very first time and hot chocolate near a warm fire place way up in the rocky mountains during the winter, imagine all of that and then…

Imagine someone not being able to experience all of that, can you imagine taking the best joys of life away from anyone? Because I can’t possibly imagine preventing anyone the opportunity to experience those things, I can not even comprehend being able to consciously do that.

In Conclusion:

There is more to life than pain, hurt, sickness, disease, heartache, war and strife there is so much more than that in this life, there is joy, happiness, peace, laughter, fun, family, friends, genuine love  togetherness, there is hope. If only we as a society could take into consideration how important these things are, then maybe, just maybe, we would think twice before taking that away from someone.

Lessons to be learned from today’s post are these:

  1. Be More Grateful
  2. There Is More
  3. Life Is More
  4. Life Is A Gift
  5. LOVE – LIVE (loving is living)
  6. We All Deserve To Live

The 5th one may not be too obvious in this post but it is in there and it is something that I have discussed many times before, I hope that you have been uplifted, inspired and encouraged by today’s post and I hope you leave here today valuing your life and the lives of others along with the lives of those that have yet to born a whole lot more, may you be richly blessed as always and don’t forget that sometimes we go through a little bit of pain so that we might gain the strength to face another day more easily.

Until next time my cybernite friends, I’m Nathan Tune from the deeply conservative pineywoods of east Texas saying ‘ya’ll come back now ya here?’ have a great rest of your day, drink some Iced sweet tea and have some fried chicken with mashed potatoes and collard greens.

My Shoes – Your Shoes

Apr
09

Hello there, I hope that every one of you are doing fine this day or whatever time it is that you choose to read this post, may you be richly blessed in his name alone, AMEN.

never-criticize-a-man

For today’s post I want to discuss the importance of wearing and being thankful for our own shoes that God has given us in our life.  Are you appreciative of the shoes that you have been chosen to wear? If not please do think on this for brief moment if you will, see if you’ve noticed my purpose isn’t to judge, condemn, or outright TELL anyone what to do, all I can do is present you the truths and hopefully you might pay attention and accept it for what it is and if you don’t then I have no ability or authority to make you do or believe anything else.

I have been given shoes to wear that have wore my feet out at times, they’ve left me blistered and sore and in terrible pain, they have given me comfort too, when I least expect they show me how much they really do help me, because someone that doesn’t have any shoes at all is put into my path by God and I am shown that there are others out there who have it a little bit worse then myself. Who knows, perhaps you’re reading this and you have a worst story than I do.

But do we really want to look at our life as a ‘bad story’ or do we want to look at the alternative which would be to view every event that we’ve endured as a great ‘testimony’ for Christ, do you truly believe that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose? Tell me if you really believe that today because I am absolutely certain that you would have to say ‘YES, YES AMEN!’

Then Think About This:

What if you would of had to endure something much worse than what you are facing at this very moment or what you have faced before? Try to put yourself in someone else’s position and see if you are able to walk a minute in their shoes, much-less a day or even a mile, could we really do it? Could we really survive in someone else’s trials and pain? Perhaps some of us could depending on what we have gone through, but say that those struggles were worse than anything that we have ever even imagined or endured, maybe we could make it through but we would come out thanking God for the shoes that he has given us don’t you think?

The other day when I was out I realized something very important, something that I needed to be reminded of because from time to time we can forget these things, with the pain from what my mother has done with taking that man back and forsaking all of us leaving a gaping wide hurting hole inside of us. I have to say that from time to time I get a little upset about it, (which is why I’m prone to getting a bit to emotional during family/Christian/Drama’s) but I was reminded that I am not the only person that is going or has gone through this type of hurt in my life and when I see something else going on in someone else’s life even if I don’t understand it I can feel their pain.

I may not be able to feel all of it, but I can feel some of it, especially when it is caused from the same type of situation that I have experienced, and I see the things I’ve went through and I know that I am blessed, I may wish things would have been a bit different from time to time or I may just wonder what things could have been like.

In Conclusion:

But I am always grateful for the shoes that God has given me, and when I see someone else hurting from any type of pain, or similar pain then it really hits home for me and I get nudges from God at times to go and speak to people to let them know that I’ll be praying for them or whatever I feel that God tells me to say, because I know myself what it is like.

Let’s all be grateful today my friends, you wear your shoes and I will wear my shoes and together we can clean each other’s shoes of all the mud, the grime and trauma that they might have went through during their time of hardships in this dark wicked world however let us know one thing that is the most important of all. God is always in control and whatever it is that is going on right now in our life, in my life and your’s you have got to remember that everything honestly happens for a REASON and a PURPOSE, a GOOD reason and a GOOD purpose.

I really do hope that today’s blog post has given you some type of insight on life in some way and until next time don’t forget that God loves you, he’s watching out for you, he’s got your back you belong to him and if you keep fighting the good fight of faith you will do alright.

Triumph..

Apr
08

Welcome back to my humble abode once again, the internet is quite a strange place isn’t it, how could that even a possibility?

white copy

Perhaps because it happens to be for the most part one of the freest places that there is left on this earth and you know what else I seem to find strange? It actually works, there’s all different ways for all of us to ‘connect’ with each other – no matter how far away from the other person we are.

It also gives us a bit of an opportunity to be someone that we can’t always be in real life, yeah you do get your online bullies, which for some cases can be the worst type of bullying and it’s a terrible thing and something that we should all stand up against and I believe that more and more, people really are.

However, I seem to be getting off subject, or am I? Perhaps I am just getting to another side of the issue maybe? The side where we can actually learn how to triumph over the most darkest times that we might ever face in our lifetime, but how exactly can we do this?

Sometimes, our greatest ‘Triumph’s‘ – may come, from our worst falls. – Nathan Tune

I believe this is rather true in many situations, and I say this not only to make a point of my own but I say this from what I have seen in my family’s life, it seems that our greatest triumphs always comes after our worst falls, and we for sure have had a few falls, many times I often wonder how we even got through like we did.

Blessed We Are –

I guess I would have to say that we are incredibly blessed, which so happens to bring me to my next point in this post – God – yes, that’s right ‘God’ what role could he have in ‘triumphing’ over ‘evil’ if any role at all right? Well, in my life he’s had an incredibly huge part in every triumph I’ve ever made.

Because I will not lie, I will not withhold the truth from my audience – (however big or small that may be) no I want to be completely honest with you and I couldn’t do that if I didn’t tell you that God has had a huge impact in helping both me and my family over come and triumph over the hardest times.

People ask me why I believe what I do, they ask me why It is that I so ‘foolishly’ (in their eyes) believe the gospel without giving much of a thought or question to what it says or about life in general and my answer to that is simple, I may not know all the answers to everything in the bible.

I may not know the counter argument to a wild-eyed atheist that wants me to bend to his will and lay down my belief in God and sometimes I may not even know how to properly defend what beliefs I have.

And That’s Ok:

Because here’s what I do know, I know enough of his word deep in my heart that I know he’s real from that alone, but I’ve not only got that, because you may think you’ve won me over because of some ‘clever’ rebuttal you throw at me and you might think that you got me pinned down on the floor crying uncle.

But guess what, you’re wrong. Because I may not be able to fully answer the questions you have, and I may even wonder them my own-self at times and that’s perfectly ok, but I have inside of me something that most people don’t have – and that would be an deeply rooted faith in God from having experience.

Experience in the miracles that he has performed in my life – experience from all the ‘worst falls’ he has brought us through.

In Conclusion:

Everyday we gotta get up and act as if it’s our birthday, act as if it’s the start of something new, because that’s really what it is if you think about it.

I always like to say this rather often – each sunrise is not the end of a day gone by, but the beginning of another day yet to come – well it’s something like that, my point is this though and I say this from a bit of experience as well.

The end is not the end, rather the end is just the beginning, it has often been said that life is like a book and we may go through chapters or pages in our life, but the book of ‘this’ life isn’t completely over until the end of our life on this side.

And even then, if you truly believe like me, it isn’t over.

So without further ado, I hope to leave you with new thoughts and new revelation about the subject of triumphing over the dark times in your life and I hope to leave you with that sweet and salty taste in your mouth that comes from some weird American-Chinese food dish.

Until next time –

I’m Nathan Tune signing off from deep within the conservative piney-woods of East Texas, wishing you and those around you, chili cheese burgers, fries, Dr. Pepper and love.

Be Unique…

Mar
30

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
25

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.

Be A Difference – See A Difference

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.
