Being Wash with the Word of God

Posted: August 18, 2021 in Uncategorized

What happens when you take a shower once a week?  The funk starts to be among us.  How about taking a bird bath a couple of days a week?  Still start to stink.  

Some take showers every night to wash off the germs, microscope bugs, and dirt from the day.  

Now let’s see what the Lord says about Washing.  

Do you think you can go to Church once a week, then put the Bible on the shelf until next week?  I don’t think so. We hear a great sermon, get some good gospel music, and walk out of Church feeling good. 

When we put the Bible on the shelf or turn off our Bible App for the week, our sinful desire starts to take over, which is the dirt we call sin.   How do we nourish and clean ourselves daily with the word of God?   The word of God gives us commands on how we are supposed to live our life.  Reading God’s word shows and warns us of our sins.  It also washes out the flesh’s desire and helps us to walk in the Spirit. 

Our Spiritual Shower

Romans 12:02 Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is his good, pleasing, and perfect will.  

We got to clean ourselves daily by reading God’s word. When we go without food, we begin to get weak, and sickness starts to move in, the same thing with the word of God.  We begin to stink of sin, and that sinful desire starts to take over.  We have to feed the Spirit with the word of God daily to wash out those evil desires and remain healthy.  

1 John 7: But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 

Psalm 51:2 Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness

Ephesians 5:25-27 (25) Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the Church and gave Himself up for her (26) to sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, (27) and to present her to Himself as a glorious church, without stain or wrinkle or any such blemish, but holy and blameless.  

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Leviticus 16:30, for it is on this day that atonement shall be made for you to cleanse you; you will be clean from all your sins before the Lord.

Mark 7:14 After He called the crowd to Him again, He began saying to them, “Listen to Me, all of you, and understand: 15 there is nothing outside the man which can defile him if it goes into him, but the things which proceed out of the man are what defile the man.  16 “If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” 17 When he had left the crowd and entered the house, His disciples questioned Him about the parable.  18 And he said to them, “Are you so lacking in understanding also? Do you not understand that whatever goes into the man from outside cannot defile him 19 because it does not go into his heart, but into his stomach, and is eliminated?” 20 And He was saying, “That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. 21 “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, 22 deeds of covering and wickedness as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness.  23 “All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man.  

Let us Bring it Home: Do we worry more about what is in our diets and how we look to others than what is in our hearts and minds?  Jesus pointed out that sin begins in the attitudes and intentions of the inner person.  We are not pure because of outward acts. We become pure on the inside as Christ renews our minds and transforms us into his image.  

An evil action begins with a single thought.  Allowing our minds to dwell on lust, envy, hatred, or revenge will lead to sin.  Don’t defile yourself by focusing on evil.  Instead, follow Paul’s advice in Phillippians 4:8 and think about what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, and of good repute.  

Jesus Visits Martha and Mary

Posted: April 13, 2021 in Uncategorized

Luke 10:38-42 38As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 41“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42but few things are needed or indeed only one an Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Mary and Martha both loved Jesus. On this occasion, they were both serving him. But Martha thought Mary’s style of serving was inferior to hers. She didn’t realize that in her desire to serve, she was actually neglecting her guest.

Let’s Bring it Home: Are we so busy at times worried about what we are going to wear to Church, how we look and how we think others should dress for church? 

Are we so busy doing things for the Church to make us look good on the outside that we are forgetting the most important thing, which is sitting down with Jesus like Martha? Martha was sitting at the Lord’s feet, and Jesus said this was better for her and it will not be taken away. 

How many of us will not even invite people over to our house because we think it’s not presentable? 

Are you so busy doing things for Jesus that you’re not spending any time with him? Don’t let your service become self-serving. Jesus did not blame Martha for being concerned about household chores. He was only asking her to set priorities. Service to Christ can degenerate into mere busywork that is totally lacking devotion to God.

It is our inner House that we need to make presentable before God, and the only way to get that right is to invite Jesus into our hearts. When we do that and develop that deep hunger and thirst for his word is when the inner house begins to get cleaned up. 

Jesus Be Praised!

 Dementia: A chronic or persistent disorder of the mental processes caused by brain disease or injury and marked by memory disorders, personality changes, and impaired reasoning. This is the world’s definition. 

Once people accept that fact, they have this, the world has made it known that is no cure. So, a lot of times we accept what the world says and give up what Jesus says. Yea, we might pray for healing but DO WE PRAY FOR HEALING or just say the words because they sound good.

 As stated, the Most Powerful Weapon in the World is the word of God. We just have to stand on it and believe it as the world says. We serve a Resurrected Jesus! Easter Sunday, we Praised the Lord with Song and Dance. We demonstrated our love for Jesus with the Outward Appearance. 

We need to stop saying I got this Dementia, Cancer, or any other illness that the world says there is no cure. We need to keep standing on the word of God.

 I just do not see it. I believe if we keep our minds in the word of God, that will keep our minds straight. I am not talking about going to church. I am talking about your own one-on-one relationship with Jesus Christ. Reading his word and not just carrying around a Bible. Why would God allow your Memory to be taken or impaired when your mind is focused on Him? 

By the Stripes that Jesus Christ Bore on his back, we are HEALED. That is Scriptural.

 Jesus Be Praised!

Tough Love

Posted: April 11, 2021 in Tough Love, Uncategorized

People, I am here to tell you that I don’t lend money out to enable a person to continue to do foolish things. 5 or 20 dollars here to support someone’s bad habit, especially to someone you know. This person might be a good friend or even a family member. At 60 years of age, you should have it together. As I look back over my life with the decisions I made, some good, some bad, I am the one who is living with the outcome of all of them.

This might seem harsh, but because you have pissed away all your years due to not taking advice or making bad decisions, and still in your 50s or 60s making bad decisions, I will not allow your problems to become mine. Not saying I will not help you, but I will only help you if you are headed in the right direction.

If you are 40 and older, and still running men and women, getting drunk, and using people to get by with no job or security in life. You need to stop now. I see people who have pissed their life away and then want to intrude on friends and family for resources to survive. With much love, it hurts to say no to a friend or family member who wants to borrow 5 or 10 dollars. Might not seem like much but giving that person 5 dollars is contributing to what is destroying him or her.

We need to stop giving strength to the devil’s schemes. The devil is out to kill, steal and destroy, and we are supporting that when we give to a person who you know for sure what he or she is doing with it. When you worked all your life and did the right things, you have the God-given right to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

I send this out in Love. Enjoy your life people, you worked for it, you earn it. Don’t let anyone stress you out to the point where you are getting sick. Pray for the person and lead them in the right direction. If they still want to go down the path of destruction, they go alone because it’s a choice they made.

Jesus Be Praised!

America has taken down Statues that have been up for years because they represent and stood for slavery. You know the story.

We also need to take down the pictures of Jesus that told a false story that brain wash black people for centuries that Jesus was white. I came up thinking this because of the images that were painted on windows, books and pictures. Some of these pictures and images made some blacks feel that being black was a curse. This was the false story that America has told for years.

Time for a Change, no one knows the color of Jesus and that is the way it should be .Its not Making America Great or Keeping America Great, its Making the World Greater with a better understanding of Jesus.

Look at these pictures and just imagine what this did to People of Color way back when.

This is an absolutely true statement of young men. They are proud that they are strong. Young men will pump iron or exercise to make them even stronger. Paul warns about putting too much emphasis on the bodily exercise.

1 Timothy 4:7-8 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old vives tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. 8For Physical training is of some value, but godliness (spiritual training) has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.

The beautiful grey hair of an old man shows wisdom and experience. For a man to live long enough to have grey hair, God would have to have blessed him.

Believing that Santa is watching their every move and judging their actions to see if they deserve gifts may be an effective way of getting children to behave during the holiday season, but what message is this sending?Is Santa like God? Only God knows these things, and that is what we need to be teaching our children.

Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Deuteronomy 6:4-6 Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.

Isaiah 54:13 All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children.

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus Be Praised!

The United States was exalted as a nation for many years because we were founded upon Biblical principles. God blessed America because of its rich Christian heritage. Our country in recent years has gotten very far away from godly teaching, and we are becoming a reproach. As a nation, we must return to God quickly and God will help us. 

2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 

While just principals and actions preserve and even exalt a society, their absence shames a society. 

Here, again, is a warning not to go in unto a harlot.

The appropriate application of this drama is made in the admonition of these verses to avoid her deadly seduction.

A wise heart would not fall into this trap. This is just a warning to stay away from this evil woman. You would have to decline to get to her, for her place is in hell.

It is not just the weak men who fall, but strong men in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong thoughts for the wrong reasons.

Paid adulteresses have ruined many lives. There are many men whose lives have been totally destroyed by visiting this type woman.

There is no heavenly home for these women or the men they trick unless they repent and turn from their wicked ways. Death and destruction await her and her victims.

This is a beautiful description of the security and peace that comes when we are hidden in the Lord Jesus. Fear will not be a part of our vocabulary, because it is the opposite of faith. If we have faith in the Lord, there is no fear.
