I’m Dying…

May
08

There are those who ‘want’ to live their life to the fullest and then there are those who actually do, there are those who spend all of their life working in it so hard and so frequently that they don’t take the time to actually ‘LIVE’ age doesn’t define how long we have lived, because you can be 120 years old, doesn’t necessarily mean that you have really began to give it all that you have and live all you can.

o-JESUS-CARRYING-CROSS-facebookI am dying, everyday I get up I die, for many reasons. The main reason is the fact that I have to die to my own self and put God first in everything it is that I do, making sure that I please him, which is hard for someone my age but I have always been able to be faithful in all situations no matter what it is that they may be or how hard. I have often wondered why it is that no matter how much I have tried and no matter how much effort I have put in to finding a job, I still haven’t been able to get hired anywhere at all, I have gone dressed up, I have gone dressed casually, I have done everything it is that I could possibly do and I have went to every place in this town at least 5 times or more and everywhere else close to where I live and still unable to get any kind of job, it’s frustrating because now that I am old enough to finally help my family financially, I can’t seem to be much help, and I have asked God for his will every time and I don’t want anything less than that, but being able to trust and obey is many times easier said then done.

Each day that I wake I am dying from not being able to do something that I truly love, like making some type of film, acting, voice acting, doing some type of voice over work or just having people nearby that I could work on such projects with, it many times feels like my passion is slowly dying inside me with each passing day and it gets to me a lot but what can I do? I understand that sometimes things have to be put on hold and I can handle that but I am really dying to get out and create amazing inspiring stories that really make a big difference in any way that I can, I am dying to uplift others in the most unthinkable way possible, I am dying to make people laugh until they cry and cry until they laugh with remarkable heartwarming touching stories that makes people truly face themselves and THINK. Something that makes them THINK about the world around them, something that really gets them to thinking about what it truly means to pick up their cross DAILY and DIE to ourselves with TOTAL surrender to Christ.

SURRENDER: 

To die daily is to surrender daily to someone much more powerful and much more wiser than ourselves and I understand for many of the people my age these days this isn’t something that will come so easily for them, and that is fine, because accepting the truth is never easy but let us not forget that just because it isn’t easy that doesn’t make it impossible, if you really want what is best for you in your life, if WE really want what is best for us in our lives then we must be willing to trust that God knows what that is. We must be willing to trust that he is capable of leading us through the darkest pits and up the steepest mountains, out of the loneliest valleys and on to the highest hill, we must be willing to trust that he is the all powerful and all knowing God of the Israelites that he brought out of slavery in Egypt, we must be able to fully give him all control of our lives, praising him at all times.

So yes, I’m dying, I’m dying to myself first, and I’m dying to the world, I’m dying to help, I’m dying to be a light for this world, I’m dying to be some type of sign of hope for others, I’m dying to make a difference and I’m dying to be a difference, I’m dying so that I can see a difference and I’m dying for a day where people are greatly moved by films that I make, stories that I tell, stories of TRUTH – LOVE – and BOLDNESS, stories where what is most important is ‘Family Values’ because it matters. It matters that we uphold the core principals of our beliefs, it matters that we are willing to die for the key ethics that we say we believe, not in some radical terrorist way, but in a loving way. In such a way that people know we love them so much that we would give our lives just so they could hear his gospel.

His Gospel of Love, Grace, Mercy, Forgiveness, Holiness, Truth, Courage, Strength, Hope, Boldness.

In Conclusion:

I’m dying to live for Christ the best way that I possibly can, and I’m dying for you to join me my friend, I want you to know that Jesus Christ is Lord of lords and I want you to know him as your own. I’m hoping that you have been blessed by today’s post and the conclusion of this post is that we are all to be a light of his word, to do this we are to die to ourselves daily so that he can have full radiance within us, so that his witness shines through us in such a way that is far brighter than anything else, because yes. I do want to make movies, dramatic Christian family tv shows and so much more and I want people to be impacted by those and I want those people to see God in me first and foremost and I pray that his blessing be upon whatever It is that I may do because I put him first and I know that because of that he will honor that.

Put God first and he will honor that, of course we know that we are not saved by any manner of works, rather we were saved FOR his workmanship which I find rather remarkable. Because his ways are not our ways and his thoughts are not our thoughts so we can’t possibly begin to think that his works are our works, his works are far more greater and far more powerful than we could ever possibly imagine, which is why when we do something that he has called us to do and when we obey him. The outcome of that obedience is a hundred times greater than anything that we could have ever done on our own and I think that’s just amazing, that’s why I am dying to do all that I can for Christ and be all that I can, that is why I’m dying on this very day.

That is why I’m dying tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day and that is why I will continue to live as if I’m dying, because I truly am dying on a daily basis to myself, and I encourage everyone to do the same. Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope that you have a blessed rest of your day and until we blog again may you be richly blessed beyond your wildest imaginations.

Come As You Are – Leave As You Weren’t

May
07

Bold words for the Christian church today, in a church world that doesn’t believe one has to change to be worthy of the kingdom of God, I can only imagine that these words are like fingernails on a chalkboard, as matter of fact it seems to me that all truth in the bible when it is spoken to today’s church they react as if you just ran your fingernails down a school chalkboard, why? The truth hurts, that is why.

woman-at-the-wellWhat is my purpose of today’s post? The same purpose as any other post I’ve written, not to judge or condemn, oh no, I will spare you the biblical inclination where we do have a right to “righteously” judge others (especially our brethren) and I will just discuss my observations once again of the ‘modern church’. I hope to make you think about the events going on around you so that you may begin to see just how wrong they really are, because they are really wrong and it is time for a big change in today’s churches, though that might make some of you a little uncomfortable you will just have to deal with that feeling and figure out whether or not that feeling is from a fleshly judgement inflicted upon you by another human’s opinion/belief (mine) or if it is inflicted upon you by the power and conviction of the Holy Ghost.

Every where in the bible, whether it was repentance of sins or being healed of some terrible disease or sickness that the person had come upon later in life or received at birth, we find that those people came to Christ in that vulnerable state, they came to him broken and they in their despair came to him seeking renewal, seeking healing, seeking… Transformation. They didn’t want to leave Christ the same way that they came, they wanted to walk away from him as they weren’t, and Christ didn’t want them to leave as they came either, you see In many cases have mentioned that I believe God doesn’t really accept us as we are, he accepts us as we are as he sees us in him, he sees us as he has already foreseen us and that is why he accepts us, he knows we are capable of greatness, if we would only allow him to come into our life and change it.

THE OLD MAN IS DEAD –

Many people in churches today however want to run ‘Grace’ into the ground and they don’t understand that by doing this they are abusing the beautiful gift that God gave us, they are mocking the torture that he went through, they are mocking all the punishment and pain which he had to endure so that we could be saved and they do so without a single care at all, so it seems, we know that scripture tells us that in Christ we find salvation, free salvation, a gift, it isn’t anything that we could ever pay for with our own works, but we know at the same time that we are to be transformed by the renewing of our mind, we are to put off the things of the old man.

We are to come to his alter as we are, and leave as we never were before.

Scripture Verses:

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2. Corinthians 5:17 K.J.V.

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

For he that is dead is freed from sin.

Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Romans 6:6 – 14 KJV

However, It appears to me that many people today seem to believe that change isn’t necessary, transformation isn’t needed, we can just simply “Come As We Are” and “Stay As We Are” but if that was this case then I have to ask the question most might be thinking when this is happening before us, “What then is the point of God?” if we can come as we are and never get any true change and there is never any type of sanctification process and separation from things of a worldly nature then WHAT. IS. THE. POINT. OF. GOD.? Perhaps the answer to that question would be this, God is a magically genie in a bottle that call upon to grant all of their wishes so that they can live the most rich and lavish lifestyle possible without ever facing any problems and cotton candy falls from the sky every evening around 5pm and the man dropping it is everyone’s beloved ‘pastor’ Joel Osteen, wait a second… That doesn’t sound right?

In Conclusion:

Without some type of ‘good’ ‘holy’ change then I have to say that God isn’t in. I’m sorry, well actually, according to a blog post I wrote a few days ago, I’m not sorry. I’m sorry in a sense that you may be deceived, but I am not sorry for the truth of the matter, you see preachers are often spreading a message of ‘love’ ‘prosperity’ and it almost appears as if they are trying to advertise the board game (Candyland) now I don’t know about you but I don’t believe that Gods gospel truth and his church is ‘candyland’ I actually believe it is to be something more something far  greater than we can ever imagine and I don’t believe that we are to be like sugary gum drops, that melts at the first sign of the sun, the heat.

But I believe that we are to be strong, courageous, bold and upholding his truth with all our might, we are to dedicate ourselves to him with everything in us, with every last fiber of our being and we cannot allow ourselves to be shaken, we cannot allow ourselves to be fooled by these lies of fluff and puff preaching. God doesn’t make our lives easier, he makes our LIFE possible, God, grace, faith all of that is where we pull strength from to make it through another day, we were never promised easy from his word, we are not ever meant to live a rich life though if we were to come upon some fortune that wouldn’t be a bad thing. But that should never be our goal. I understand if some want to find an easier way, because it can get hard times, but I don’t understand how people could believe it.

People that have served God for years can turn away from everything they once believed, whether it being wearing skirts, make-up, pants watching TV whatever it is they used to brutally judge others for not wearing skirts, for wearing make-up, for wearing pants and for being a participant of ‘Television’ (or as some call it) “Hellevision” yet now they wear pants, shorts, make-up, watch all manner of truly sinful things on TV and somehow it is OK, for them. But let us be not deceived, whatever sin is, if we know to do good and then don’t do it, then to us it IS sin. (James 4:17)

I hope that today’s post has blessed you in someway and you made you face yourself and THINK.

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.
