A Divided Body

To even begin with a title of this magnitude shows me that God has laid something very powerful upon my heart. Something very much intended to rock the boat if you will of those claiming the faith in Christ Jesus. Something that will most definitely bring forth offense.

So, with that said lets dive right in as this has impressed a great sorrow upon my heart. As I examine the interactions I have had and the behaviors I have exhibited, I have taken notice of a specific behavior presented to me concerning one major area. That area is the word of God from those that claim to follow Jesus Christ.

That specific behavior is the act of being contempt towards those that speak with assurance and confidence that the word of God is truth.

Now this may not come across as a bit of a shock as we are told that scoffers will come in these last days. See 2 Peter 3:3 Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires. This is stated again in Jude1:18.

The shock of this is that most of us, myself included assumed that this verse was to apply to those that do not claim the faith. Yet what we are seeing is many self professing Christians are the scoffers towards their fellow believers. How is this possible?!

I can of myself not say how such a thing is possible without the Holy Spirit revealing it to me. So I shall proclaim what I have been informed.

The reason for this is that many have given themselves over to deceptive spirits.

See 1 Timothy 4:1-2 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron.…

There is a deceptive spirit in this world specifically masking itself as a believer. Christ informed us of this spirit. He actually told us to beware of it. The way he described it was the wolf in sheep’s clothing. We understand the sheep clothing is to refer to the outward appearance of one that follows him, but inwardly is a wolf, one that does not. The wolf is always looking to attack sheep. This is why you see so many that claim to follow Christ exhibiting behaviors against fellow believers that come across as if they are enemies!

The level of contempt towards believers from believers is astounding! This is usually found when a believer speaks with confidence in the word of God. Stands on his word and doesn’t waver in it because of life circumstances. The wolf in sheep’s clothing hates this. You will usually see this level of contempt towards that person in forms of humor or coarse jokes about how this person is a pastor, or name calling like okay Minister such and such with a smile. I have experienced this sort of sarcasm and condescension so often that it truly stirs a sorrow in me.

My first experience with that deceiving spirit in a self proclaiming believer was when I challenged the ideology at this point for some, that we will always be in sin. I presented scriptures and did my best to explain them in the way the word of God tells us to with verses like Romans 6:11 that states we are to consider ourselves dead to sin and alive in Christ. Also in 1 John 5:18, that states everyone born of God does not sin, but the one born of God keeps him and the evil one does not touch him. Yet this was rebuked with notions like we are in Gods grace or it is arrogant and prideful to claim what scriptures says we are to claim. Dead to sin. I am still lost with the logic used by those whom reject scripture but claim to believe it. Isn’t that deception?!

It is so common for many believers claiming to follow Christ to use the language that is Anti-Christ while thinking it is a form of humility. Now I am not saying to the one that is truly sinning to be in deception about it. What I am saying to that person is what Christ are you following that is not convicting you of your sins? This is the kind of language that stirs the wolf in sheep’s clothing. Yet I do not consider him. For his purpose is to deceive other believers that sinning is just apart of life. Yet the life in Christ has no sin in it and if yours does then we ought to pray for you not comfort you in it. We are to love each other enough to not want anyone claiming Christ to perish let alone with the deception that living in sin is just a stage God has you in as he grows you. The word of God says we are transformed into his image from glory to glory. What manner of glory is a sinful life that it be to another glory?!!

This is more of the deceptive language used amongst the body to comfort people while they live in sin. Yet it proves as hypocrisy when challenged with scripture.

God never sent his Son to comfort people in sin. He sent his son to convict people of their sins in hopes of repentance. When you explain what repentance actually is you find many desire not such a thing. For true repentance is not an apology or simply sorrow for the action of sin alone but rather with those included comes a change of life. A change of behavior from the sin. We understand this concerning heinous crimes. Which shows our hypocrisy concerning this.

Can you imagine a murderer or a rapist, a sexual immoral person, or a cheater all weeping and apologizing for the killings, the rapes, the fornication and infidelity committed and then two days later doing it all again?!! Not one of us would even consider the weeping and the apology as sincere at that moment. Yet when it comes to God there is a deceptive spirit amongst the body that says the Lord understands you not changing your ways. He understands you will fall. It lies to us and speaks things like “yes his son died for your sins so just say you believe in that and when you do sin he will think nothing of it”. “Call it his grace”!

Although nothing in the word of God tells us these things are true, many prefer them as they provide the comfort to keep living how you want while maintaining the false reality that you are receiving salvation from God through his son Jesus. Look at it this way. Say you repent to God for sinning against him, and then a week later you do the same sin again and disregard feeling sorrow for it or even taking it to God. Let’s say that night you die. What manner of evil wants you to believe that God will not judge you? The idea the deceiver wants us to adopt is that he will overlook what you just did because of your apology prior. Our sincerity with our original repentance to God is proven true by not committing it again. Isn’t it?? The spirit of deception has become a voice to some and when the one that rebukes these lies shows up, he is met with contempt. Regardless the word of God is not a gray area for our comfort. Rather for change and respect for what was done for us. Unfortunately this is rejected by many.

This is very common. So I write this to bring into light those that may not understand what is happening when they experience this. I write this to shine light on it so you know it is not from God when people that claim the faith do these things to you. The word of God tells us to beware, be on guard against such wolf attacks from those wearing the clothing of a sheep. Masking themselves as brothers and sisters in Christ.

So here is a heads up on how this contempt will look when you interact with such people. Also examine yourselves as to not find these ways being done towards fellow believers. Those ways resemble the treating of others with disrespect and mocking them with sarcasm and condescension as these are forms of contempt. So are hostile humor, name-calling, mimicking, and body language such as eye-rolling and sneering.

I’m sure many have experienced this as I have. The truth is you will never see this done to you if you are the person that wavers in your faith. This is only done to those who are confident and bold in the belief that his word is true! Those that speak it with zeal and have a Godly passion for the truth in Christ.

So with that said I leave these verses for my true family of believers that stand truly in him with this.

Jude 1:20-25 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh. 24 Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, 25 to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

Love your neighbor

There is an overwhelmingly powerful movement happening from those desiring to prove their descendance as Hebrews or Israelites. There is also a movement amongst the African American community that is rejecting Jesus Christ and the word of God. This is being done by many African Americans in a way to reject the European descendants. The reasoning for this is because of the very blatant history of slavery and violence that was projected unto the African American in this land America.

What is stunning to me though is the absence of total truth about it all. If we read honestly the word of God we see that God punished his people throughout the Old testament for their rejection and disobedience of him. It is clear from the Old testament that God uses ungodly nations to rule over his people as a form of punishment for their rebellion. He states he will scatter them to foreign lands, give incurable diseases, and allow hunger amongst many other things to punish his people for their ways against him. See Leviticus 26:14-46.

This is hard for many to receive, so we see this movement angry at European descendants for their behaviors against those labeled black in America and really that anger is misplaced. To a degree. Or rather absent of true understanding.

The anger should be against the very ancestors we so lovingly want to be associated with. If one is to assume anger as appropriate concerning all these things. It is their very ways and actions against the God that rescued them from slavery originally that caused these punishments to fall upon them and the descendants of them. God never told us we didn’t have an enemy, but here we are fighting to expose their heritage while ignoring our own truly. Is this not hypocrisy?! So many are clinging to this bondage instead of receiving the very freedom God gives through his son Jesus Christ. For the freedom he gives does not have you under a curse. It does not align you with the actions and ways of those before you that rejected God. So is there any surprise that in 2022 we see many adopt ways of living that are against God while using the mind of those that rebelled in past?

The second half of this piece will truly expose who our neighbor is and who our enemy is. Who our brothers and sisters in Christ are and who are truly foreigners to us. Nonetheless we are to love all with truth. Not to hinder them in their belief in our Lord (Yeshua)(HaMashiach) or known as Jesus Christ. Rather there should be fellowship with them that truly believe.

This country is very consumed by race, but what consumes it even more is immorality. So the enemy has made a concerted effort of merging the two. Now many feel it is acceptable and right in the eyes of the African American community to see a homosexual male paraded on television as a representation of men of our race. African American society doesn’t see that as destructive to the future of the race, although knowing that lifestyle ends procreation of it. Yet the race of people claim to be for their people. All the while pointing out how a Klan member teaches racism to their young and that is destructive to their race future. Yet the Klan member will still procreate while we end our own race to celebrate a lifestyle that cannot produce any life. This is just one of the obvious hypocritical ways the “pro black” movement has blinded itself. Your men wear dresses and have the entire culture of people afraid to even say that is wrong and it does not foster a strong black man for the future, but here we are claiming to be for the black man and for our people. What people??! People of wrath and immorality apparently. This is how race and immorality has merged itself above truth in Christ amongst the African American. Somehow many believe that this isn’t the mind of a gentile but because you believe you have Hebrew descent and be from Israel God is pleased with you. This is a lie from hell.

So, with that said let me be clear. There is one brotherhood and one Lord and savior Jesus Christ. There is one God and he is the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. Those that have faith in Jesus Christ are of the brother and sisterhood under God. Those that have faith in Jesus and live in this faith daily are the foreigners of the world. Therefore our neighbor would be everyone else outside of this. We are called to love them just as we love God and our brothers and sisters in the faith.

As for who is able to be saved and who Jesus came for. Lets keep it simple.

Salvation comes to Gentiles from the root of God’s covenant with the Jews. They are simply grafted in like wild olive branches that have no historical claim at all on being God’s people. And God saves them by reckoning them children of Abraham by faith, as Paul says in Galatians 3:7, “It is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham. Love your brother who is of the same faith as you. No he may not be of Hebrew descent or a Israelite but if his faith is in Jesus Christ, it be not loving to cause him to stumble in his faith because of the heritage we have as descendants of Israel or his or her lack thereof.

All gentiles were only grafted in because of our ancestors disbelief. How can we be proud of our heritage without recognizing the mercy of God over his people.  Our heritage will not save us. If anything, it shows even more the mercy and grace of God because of what our predecessors did against him. Or do we think God chose the Hebrews because they were righteous? Clearly not. Do not think that we have been chosen by God due to our works.

Why are many in 2022 trying to prove what heritage they have as though that makes them right with God?? Could it be they do not understand who truly their brothers and sisters are in Christ? Maybe the desire to be recognized by appearance rather than faith is the motive. Regardless it is our faith in his son that makes us right with God, for only that is what God will recognize in the day of judgement. He will not say: because you are Hebrew or because you are a Israelite, you are saved. If that very person believeth not in his son as many Jews do not how might they be right with God? Would you receive anyone that rejected your child? So what benefit are we trying to present to the gentiles of our heritage??

This is not of God. We should love our neighbor, the believing Gentile in our brother Jesus Christ just as we love the fellow African American. Being a descendant of the Hebrews in Israel was of great value. Now the value is found in the faith and belief in his son Jesus Christ. It is the very racist mind of the European that desires us to focus on skin color and ethnicity. So much of that way of thinking came from those many claim they are against. Yet they will adopt the very same logics to make their own distinctions. How is this not hypocrisy?!

Our elder brother and Lord told us to love our neighbor and used a Samaritan to show this. The parable was to speak through the actions of the non Jew that he was a neighbor to the Jew. So the Jew ought to treat the non Jew the same with love.

When the Centurion officer who was a gentile came to Jesus asking that his servant be healed, he also stated that he was unworthy for Jesus to come to his home. So much so that if Jesus simply spoke the healing he believed it would be so. Read what Jesus said to him about Gentiles. He states, they would come from the east, and the west to dine with Abraham, Issac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. He stated this after marveling at the faith of this gentile and said it was greater than he had seen in all of Israel. This was God speaking through his son to show us what would make Gentiles right with him. Their faith. Love your believing neighbor. For that is your brother and sister.

Read Leviticus 19:34 and Mark 12:31 for clarity as it is written in the Old spoken by The Father God and in the New spoken by his son Jesus. Lastly remember this about those that are not of your own denomination or claim superiority in their own church establishment. In Luke 9:50, Jesus says this when approached by his followers that witnessed others doing what they were doing but not of their own group.

Luke 49-50 Master,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in Your name, and we tried to stop him, because he does not accompany us.” 50“Do not stop him,” Jesus replied, “for whoever is not against you is for you.”

Let no-one confuse this as accepting someone manipulating Christ for gain or vain reasons but rather a believer in truth. Let us not cause other believers to stumble because of our own movement or ancestry that doesn’t align with us. Let us hold to what our elder brother stated and love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

May the peace of Christ be with you as we do so.

The battle from within

Who do you serve?

It can be 6am where I am in Texas and 3am in the Pacific. If people are awake the battle begins from within. This battle never cares what time it is. It resides from within.

As followers of Christ Jesus as our Lord and savior it appears we share something in common with those that do NOT. There be a constant similarity amongst us all. This is clear because we all have this flesh. So the question for everyone always comes back to how are you handling moments that challenge your flesh?

The flesh is the single thing we all have in common. No-one will dispute that. So when we read what the Bible tells us about this flesh we get a better understanding of what we are truly subjected to while in it.

In Galatians 5:19-22 it says this. 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these.  Can this be disputed? Can any of us dispute that one of these ways have been found within us at some point in life? Though being honest with oneself has become openly rejected amongst this generation. It has been hated from the beginning.

The flesh is the single thing we all have in common. In other words SIN. We all have SIN in common. Satan has tried to glorify some sins all while seeking to present others as lesser or not as severe. Take a look at the list above in Galatians 5;19-22 again. Carefully read each sinful nature. Your flesh will pick out the ones you feel truly are not as bad as the others. Interesting how that happens from within us. Society has adopted this model as the standard we should live by. This is why a person can get drunk weekly with friends at a bar and look down on the person that is drunk on the street corner. They have used the model Satan has given them. The model that keeps us feeling more righteous than another.

Its as if our sinful minds knew it could not get away from its conscience, so it created a way of thinking that blinds us from ourselves. Its our evolved way of hiding from God. The most difficult thing to witness in this world is someone convinced they are okay without Christ.

They truly do not understand the degree of danger they are in. There is a belief that their SIN is not seen by God. Mainly because the sins they feel are truly recognized by God are the ones society has deemed heinous. There is no regard for what God says. No regard for who God says we all are. Romans 3:23 says it best For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; There is no regard for this. This is because society and the powers of this world are their god.

What they say is what is believed. Society says you can be good. You can accomplish good through efforts that make you feel good. You can have a good life. Just invest in your future. Prioritize a career that makes good money. Enjoy vacations. Laugh at whatever you want! Engage in whatever you find enjoyment. Please yourself. This is what is believed to be the answer to life. So they prove whom they serve by what is said and what is done. Not knowing they are serving SIN and being led to eternal death.

So back to my original thought. The main similarity amongst us that claim Christ is the same as those that do not. The FLESH. So how are you handling moments that challenge your flesh?

We all have this clash in the flesh to sin when our desire mentally is aware of what God says. Paul did a great job of describing this in Romans 7:14-25

 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

What an eye opening thing written here by Paul. This flesh is wretched!! Its desires are against God. So conflicted. So deceiving! Yet we still battle with this understanding of who Satan is. So lets be clear. Satan is a spirit against God. The flesh is his playground. The flesh desires his ways DAILY!! By the second even. If we truly understand this, then being saved , being born again would make more sense to us and not come across as just that Christian thing that we say.

It’s mandatory!!! For we reside in a body in a world that is of Satan.

Read Romans 8:8-10 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.

Notice Satan is not mentioned here. Only your flesh. So if you want to know who Satan is, maybe take the blinders off and you will see that wolf!!! Reject what he uses from within you. Take off the blinders and look in the mirror!

This great mystery society has been trying to hide for ages. Let any that can hear. Hear! Until you see yourself as God sees you. Meaning sinful and hateful towards him in all your ways, you will never understand his love.

So again how are we handling moments that challenge our flesh? You will see Satan appear in you. Will Christ appear? Whomever you submit to appear in you proves whom you serve actually. Proves what you believe in. For belief is carried out by how we live. Be not be deceived.

Be in the peace of Christ and choose wisely.

Times running out on the lie that is LUST

Its early in the morning. Almost 6am to be exact and for me I wake up with a serious topic on my mind. A topic that plauged me to destruction at times in life. Such a dangerous and wicked topic that the word of God tells us to flee from it. It is the only sin that is done against oneself! Anytime this evil spirit comes upon you, me or anyone it is to be taken seriously. Time is running out and this is an area that needs to be dealt with immediately.

See the reason it is to be taken very seriously is because the L word has worked for hundreds of years to become apart of cultural norms. It has fought to inject its ways into the ways of children. It has dominated adults to levels of perversion. All to take the sting out of what it truly is. Destruction! It truly only leads to destruction.

Lust is a temptation and an evil that overcomes many of us. It is born of Satan and the flesh. Every single one of us is subject to lust. If we are to overcome it, we must be strong. Use the Bible verses I reference to find out why you should resist lust, and use them to strengthen yourself.

Jesus Christ was informed from God to address this. He did so in a new way that many had not heard it described before. For many have tried to use lust in secret and with their eyes. Thinking somehow it wasn’t as serious as physical touching. So The Christ says this in Matthew 5:28 I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Many would say I thought adultery could be committed only by married individuals. Well then. It appears the act of adultery is lust. This isn’t the name society wants anyone to know about it. This isn’t the name Satan desires anyone to know about lust. Yet Christ exposed it for what it is. It isn’t just an attraction to someone, it isn’t just harmless admiration of someone’s body with your eyes. It isn’t to be accepted as just what everyone does.

It is exactly what our savior calls it. What God the Father commanded us not to do. Commit adultery.

If we understand the seriousness of the next statement from Christ maybe we get a true vision of how severe this sin is.

In Matthew 18:9 He says this. If your eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.

If this doesn’t bring even deeper clarity to the seriousness of this sin then I don’t know what will. Looking upon a person with lust is enough to send you to hell.

What we have learned here from Christ is that the L word is actually adultery. Also that it is a sin against your own self and should be taken with such seriousness to the degree that he gives an example of you doing bodily harm to prevent it from happening. There is no other sin that he paints such a gruesome image of how to stay away from it.

This was not done to encourage you to do harm to yourself, but to rather get the point across with such seriousness that the reader or listener would comprehend how serious this is.

Lust has no boundaries. It will even visit you while you sleep. It desires so much it will take advantage of the sleeping. Be not confused. A Rapist, A Pedophile, A homosexual, A heterosexual, An adolescent, and an adult all can be, and HAVE been visited by Lust. This covers everyone. From the sick and demented, to the perverse and wretched. To the common individual that glances in admiration of someone’s appearance. Lust is a spirit from Satan. It will overtake you and look for various ways to engage in its wickedness.

Be on guard against this wicked spirit as we now live in a generation that supports the L word as an expression to be done freely or artistically. Children now encouraged to explore with their identities and to be not ashamed of whatever they stumble upon. This is clearly not a doctrine from a God of love. But from a ruler that hates you. Desires destruction for you. And the most powerful fruit that evil one has ever desired mankind to have is LUST. It has even changed its identity for those believing the lie that it is okay to engage in it. Now the L word desires to mask itself as the (other L word that has never had fellowship with it. )

Lust now has support from many to be called Love. And this is its great mistake beyond words. As God is Love and Lust is from Satan. Once a generation seeks to align God with anything from Satan that generation is cursed.

So you see. Marvel not at your riots, or your mass shootings, or your perverse tv shows and music. Marvel not at what you call climate change that brings forth fire and storms or destruction. Marvel not when those that celebrate their lust in the streets claim love. This is the result of a world that has done the cardinal sin. Make lust a form of love from God the Father. Knowing it to be from Satan.

You aren’t living in the last days if you believe lust is about expression and the freedom to do so. Understand this! You are already dead unless you turn from this!! Those that are alive living amongst the dead in these last days keep yourself from the L word and run to the true Love of Christ daily!!

Keep your mind renewed on his word DAILY. To even have a moment of lust, a literal second is the worst feeling you can have. If you dont have this strong of a stance on this topic please re-read the scriptures listed here in this post. Pray God gives you clarity to see this for exactly how he sees it.

May the peace, the grace and mercy of God be upon us all that believe in his son Jesus Christ. There is an ending when the time runs out on this generation against God the Father in Jesus Christ. Be not deceived where the lie that is lust will lead.

Does God love sinners?

Hmm.. many will argue Romans 5:8- But God demonstrates his own love for us in this While we were still sinners Christ died for us. The carnal mind wishes to receive this as yes he loves sinners. Yet if you examine the scripture closer and meditate on it you find something. The scripture is trying to explain Gods love. Not justify your lifestyle. Make no mistake God hates sin. So when the writer is explaining that WHILE we were doing what God hates he displayed his love to us. He’s giving insight on how good God is. Insight on how truly different he is than we are. This should not be used as an way to convince sinners that God loves them but to present to them how much we don’t love him.

Does God love sinners?

Hmm.. many will argue Romans 5:8 – But God demonstrates his own love for us in this While we were still sinners Christ died for us. The carnal mind wishes to receive this as yes he loves sinners. Yet if you examine the scripture closer and meditate on it you find something. The scripture is trying to explain Gods love. Not justify your lifestyle. Make no mistake God hates sin. So when the writer is explaining that WHILE we were doing what God hates he displayed his love to us. He’s giving insight on how good God is. Insight on how truly different he is than we are. This should not be used as an way to convince sinners that God loves them but to present to them how much we don’t love him.

Many try to come to God with an emotional need for him to fill. Thinking he is their source to fulfill their own desires. God is not a puppet we get to move to soothe our own personal needs. This is dangerous. Self deception is real and many think they are saved because they needed God to make them feel better. It is very important to seek God with the right heart and the right motives. That is simply recognizing that your life has been in direct rejection of him. That’s hard for people to receive. You cannot come to God truly unless your reason for coming is because you recognized your life represented a hatred of him and his ways. Then you will repent for living apart from him , then you will understand the scripture that while we were sinners he chose to show love to us that we didn’t deserve and in our belief in his son whom died for us we could truly have life with him.

Many don’t understand why Christ had to die for us. Why a sacrifice was required. So saying someone died for you makes no sense to them. Saying someone loves you and did such a thing can bring a person in need of love but not in desire to love him. The question is never does God love us, its do we love him. So telling a sinner that God loves them is dangerous if that’s all you are telling them. Ask them do they love God. They have to be honest about that question before they can even understand Gods love.

The gospel is not a one trick pony one liner got ya type of gimmick. It is intended to have a person examine every way of their life. Not squeeze a little in here and a little in there and find where it works for the life we already have. We must die to our old life and submit everything to him. The true gospel is rejected by the world for that reason.


Culture of Darkness

My Lord how the doctrines of devils have deceived the world.

Love will always be the answer. How can anyone African American talk about culture? What culture? Music or the desire to attain financial wealth?! The pride in flashing anything materialistic you gain? Glorifying all this. That’s your culture. The culture of this generation. Now pride in rioting is added to this. Those that understood truth actually carried it out with peace. Yes even while being beaten. They stood for their faith in Christ above some culture that claims none of the faith in Christ.

Guess what those whom delight in being called “Black” …you have adopted the culture given to you. Even the Hip Hop and jewelry you want to claim as yours was given to you. You turn a blind eye to sagging pants and objectifying our woman. There is no shock that now you receive homosexuality as you have been on board with destroying the black family for years. You love the black man that is interested in abandoning his child for a relationship with multiple women, he was glorified as a playa. Why would abortion matter to you as the child is just interrupting your ability to sleep around more. Conflicting with choice to live as you please.

Now you welcome the man interested in relationship with another man, as if that can rebuild the black race stronger?!! That’s your culture you don’t wish to accept but openly accept as good. Hypocrites!! You point the finger when the murder of blacks happen, then get offended when topics are brought up of murder of black men by your own culture of gang members. You rather put the responsibility on the one you despise to value your life than your own brother! How foolish is this?! Wouldn’t you expect more from your family than your enemy? You point out the dust in the eye of your brother and miss the log in your own eye.

It is a spiritually poor culture given to those intended to stay spiritually poor and live valuing the very same darkness those you oppose value. Its deception. Now you think you know your culture because you study Africans?? Egyptians?? Many African cultures are about idol and pagan worship. But because it is a change of what you know in America you think it is what God wants you to follow. You hate God and his son so you don’t read for yourself what God says. You rebel against what you think is the European but in fact are rebelling against God as you associate the European with God, like a child grows up into a man and associates God with his relationship with his Dad. Without even knowing it. Looking for “Black leaders” he will grow to seek instead of Christ. Instead of truth. Just someone that looks like him, that speaks like him. He will surely find it and will surely be lead to destruction. There is no way around this. This culture doctrine is the same destructive doctrine that has plauged the European. Their culture of racism still haunts them. Their curse from manipulating the gospel of Jesus Christ is what they are reaping.

He said to depart from the world and not let it corrupt you. But you love the world so the love of the Father is not in you. You want to serve culture and not God. So now you are a slave to culture.

The issue is that the world rejects Yeshua the Christ his love, now their answer is start focusing on yourself. Idolize yourself and your perspective of reality. Broad is the way to destruction. Your wise men are nothing more than Anti-Christ and are against his word, meaning they are against The Heavenly Father and are children of their Father. He who was a liar from the beginning and has remained such. Notice the idea that is being received now for those that claim “Black” is to seek identity, culture, and purpose. All those things are found in Christ. Yet we are being told to seek those things in your ethnicity. How is that not what those you despise do? So you don’t reject those that claim “White” you honor them by following the same model they provided you. Instead, you take pride in the things that devalue you and call it culture. Thinking you have wisdom. But having destruction.

Remember broad is the way to destruction. Narrow is the way to heaven. This doctrine to uplift yourself through culture and finding your identity through it is demonic. If you claim to follow Christ Yeshua, you find your identity. He provided the example on how you should live. This is difficult for people to receive because its an identity in God. That puts him first and not yourself. The idea to put yourself first has been the objective of Lucifer since the garden. Its because the rebellion against God to do this is the spirit of Lucifer. That spirit only came into being through seeking this very thing. You see this idea is popular and it has given birth to lawlessness and darkness dressed in the desire for good. This generation has perverted the children to receive the idea that God can make mistakes in your created being but you cannot in your choosing of what’s best for you.

This generation has perverted the idea of family to children ,claiming Gods design of Mother and Father is not necessary in the upbringing of a child so now a generation of confused, and rebellious children roam with the inability to connect through anything outside of an electronic device. Presenting the idea of a man that can be one that presents himself as a woman and the idea of a woman can be one that presents herself as a man. This does not come across as twisted to those in the world as they are under strong deceptions that alter even the very basic truths of life.

The culture of this generation is disfunction. The culture of this generation is confusion. The culture of this generation is complete darkness. All wrapped in this idea of knowledge and peace and truth. Having none of it truly.

To those that have the truth in Christ-run your race with focus during these times. Be a slave to nothing. Not even your culture.

Rise in truth

Is there someone able to present an option that exists outside of life and death?

All this wisdom floating around with vain perspectives. Christ isn’t real or the Bible isn’t relevant or its outdated. All religions are the same. The purpose of life is to have peace with people and that peace should okay sin. Sin isn’t relevant to homosexuality. Its about love. Find your inner peace with meditation. This and many more worldly wisdoms are in active pursuit of souls currently. Many are flocking to these perspectives with the assurance they are truth. This is very sorrowful to watch unfold but was expected as I believe exactly what the Bible says of this world. It predicted it all.

Jesus was sent to bring the knowledge of True Life. When we disapprove of the Life he came to show, our option we choose is simply death. For the value of this flesh life is above anything else in that persons heart. So they shall perish with it. Jesus never told you to have a feeling about him or worship him. Read and find the truth about Christ. Those that claim they feel him and claim that’s why they believe are not understanding Christ message. His message from God was simply this; abandon what you know as your normal. Accept that what you know is evil and sinful. Then and only then can you even begin to understand. Your feelings and emotions are what deceive you. They guide our existence. It is why a personal experience is now considered their truth in this generation. For the experience itself is enough to be considered all that matters as it resides with emotions and feelings. It is served as truth which means it is the god we serve within ourselves.

These emotions and feelings align with our experiences and they give birth to a knowledge that seems right but in the end is death. Whether a person claims to be emotional or not it is emotion that directs the perspective. People go to church and form their views of God from how people handled themselves there, or how the church was run. So who is God to them? It must have been an experience that gave birth to an emotion that now directs their perspective. This is vain and idolatry. It is not following Christ. It’s following others. Following Christ is not for the weak or the undisciplined. This is a personal walk that humbly says my life is not my own. I don’t have the knowledge within myself to understand righteousness. Only God can give me that. The issue is pride. The idea that we are not equipped with the ability to love the right way is offensive to people. But we aren’t. We aren’t even capable of doing the genuine noble thing that doesn’t consider ourselves without The Holy Spirit.

Understand Christ came to present the truth that everything you know, from your vain knowledge, or your vain attempts to advance in this life, or your thinking that you are here for yourself is all wicked. All these things are glorified here on earth as good and necessary. So whether a church ,or a church member or a professing follower of Christ acted differently than what the Bible says….its irrelevant to you because you don’t follow them. They are not your savior or your judge or your example. Christ is.

Now the idea that Christ Jesus(Yeshua) never existed is another barrier that keeps many away. We as African Americans understand we were brought here against our own will. Those that did this presented a false Christianity that revolves itself around control and vain advancement. So now those ready to rebel against this choose to discredit Christ just as those Europeans did in their false presentation of him. So who are you following? Are you looking to follow the true teachings of Christ or using your emotions and feelings to direct your perspective in your life. Wisdom would tell you, why would these men and woman present something to me for control and falsify it unless its truth was something that freed me mentally. If Jesus was false there would be no need to alter his words or his teachings to dishonor you. Christ is rejected and hated because this is a difficult teaching to receive as we cling to what we know and what we have been taught as true. Even in our current rejection of the powers that have treated the African American so harshly. We are still clinging to our own vain knowledge to do this just as they did in their own way with the power they had. Same evil ,different platform.

So the cleverness of evil within says , I will take my circumstances and experiences and create my own truth. Now we have a vain knowledge movement angry at the caucassion’s for presenting a false Jesus to you so intern you still give it power by rejecting the true Christ. Not even wanting to seek him for yourself because you say in your heart the way they have showed me Jesus was the only way. So you still show they have power over you. Instead of indoctrinating yourself on what others are doing or presenting, truly show your independence by exercising knowledge for yourself in Christ.

Humble yourself and ask for faith. Then if your heart be true you will read for yourself to understand better, you will seek to die in this flesh mentally and rise with a new understanding so you may receive The Holy Spirit. That will help your thinking but until then you will simply be another person walking around thinking you are wise and yet are foolish. Departing away from the false Christianity is important, but yet you aren’t seeking the true Christ. You expose who really your God is!

Lastly what evil in this world would tell you to depart from its ways ,its necessities? When everything in it says be like this ,do this, accomplish this to be successful. These ways of life are okay ,contrary to what the bible says. The world did not write a book that rejects itself. Be not deceived. The very God it hates and his son are the authors in spirit to the men that wrote this book. When you find the true Christ you find he actually came to tell us the same thing about the church. But you wouldn’t know that because you reject the word for yourself and leave it to others to disapprove what was already within your heart.

What if the best person you can be in this world is a wicked one? We are living in the days where that person is called good, and the person seeking and following Christ is called wicked. This is because of their rejection of the evil the world calls good. We believe what God says to be true! We trust in Christ and think not highly of ourselves as we have been shown our true selves and reject the old man as he was evil. Now we live in peace that the new man God has put in us is not in desire of evil.

This worlds logic only applies to what they feel. Everyone’s values should align with what they claim, yet those values come from the word of God. So ultimately all you are left with is a bunch of do good talk and maximize your potential of increase in whatever you do over and over again. Vain pointless nothings that you cant take with you when you leave this earth. So what other options are here but life and death??!

Let the true followers of Christ message rise up in these last days. As none of us know when our last day is.


The forbidden fruit of self

The title, the verse, the quote. Seems pretty self-explanatory, yet it is the very thing that stumbles us all. Or at-least has at some point. Every individual from biblical times to the current state of the world has experienced this. It is the very foundation Satan uses. It’s probably because it has worked most successfully on mankind since the beginning. From the very beginning, it is written that once that forbidden fruit was consumed their eyes were open. For shame and fear entered into them. What enticed them was the presentation of that fruit. It is what entices mankind today. That which is enticed is that inner voice that says you are here for you. You are here to accomplish the dreams of your heart. You are here to increase and live the life of comfort that you so clearly deserve for self or family or need.

That enemy has done quite a job to present the mandatory comprehension of tending to self for self-gain and/or need. So much so it has created a gospel that claims Christ as the one whom it follows. Yet when you truly read the word of God in spirit, you are made aware that this is not from God The Father. This is rather from that same deceiver that was there in the garden.

We read of the temptations that Christ endured and yet we never associate those exact things to what we all are enticed by. If Satan would use those things to entice Christ you would think those that follow Christ would be on the alert against those very things. Yet Satan knows we operate in ignorance of truth. He waited until the 40th day to present himself to Christ. This appears to mean he knew to attack the flesh at its weakest. So how many times have we been attacked at our weakest? Most of us are always at our weakest so he attacks daily without resistance. Once he has convinced us that our way of thinking is okay or right or justified, he knows the job is done.

The purpose of this piece is to speak to the strongest deception mankind has endured since the beginning. The deception that you are here for you. You are here for God. Your life is not your own if you claim Christ. To the world this is foolishness. That in itself should let us all know that it is a word not of this world. It is the very gospel of Christ though. To deny oneself and all the glory the evil one wishes to present during our short stay here on earth.

Now if we examine this logic we will find that the world and the secular Christianity movement both agree with each other. The model and structure they follow is clearly the same. Increase is the goal. The business and the ministry desire the same thing. Finances are needed and the more the merrier. This also aligns them together. Entertainment to keep the members engaged in the product is a primary focus that aligns both also. So its clear they are friends of the world and we should know what God calls friends of the world. You make yourself an enemy of God by doing such a thing. How do you know if you are a friend of the world? Well how do you know if you are anyone’s friend? Don’t over complicate what is simple. Let the Holy Spirit bring to each person the clarity to examine oneself. So what is it that we are missing? What gospel do we want?

What Christ is our preference? Is it the Christ that was tortured and executed? Or the Christ that helped Peter have a grand fishing trip?! Do we desire the Christ that said think nothing of what you will eat or drink, or what you will wear? Or maybe we desire the Christ that turned water into wine.

See this truth determines what our motives for following him are. This truth is what causes Christ to say I never knew you. Or what causes him to say I know you in front of The Father. When he says that anyone that denies him in-front of men will be denied in-front of The Father. He is speaking to if you denied yourself while you were here on earth. SO to destroy the logic of some preachers claiming its Gods will that they have extravagant lifestyles and possessions understand the son of man didn’t have a place to lay his head. Are you suggesting God desired this for him but earthly increase for you in man-made possessions?? Is he not the same God today, yesterday and forever? Why deceive yourself because of fear? Is life not more than those things??! Obviously there is a reason to guard yourself against them.

There must be something there he wishes for us to trust him in when it comes to those things. Maybe just maybe its because they are the very things Satan uses to corrupt us. Seems simple. Get you to think about yourself and your desires. But if you think about it. Its perfectly designed by the enemy. The enemy from within. The ME GOD. That is the enemy. Cant put Christ first with yourself in the focus. Once we deny ourselves then we will find our desires pure to God as our desires will not have an ounce of me in it. We will recognize who we truly are and who Christ came to restore us to. Then the understanding that this life is not our own will make since in the Holy Spirit.

I won’t expound on this further but hear this. The only way to bind Satan’s power in our lives is by the truth. Whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven as stated by Christ. Truth is not always easy to hear. It’s not always in alignment with what is comfortable. Until the life on earth is viewed truly through the Holy Spirit all the necessities of this life will be presented as such, rather than what they truly are. And they are deceptions. Rationalized deceptions presented as beautiful, and mandatory for the basic comfort of life. We will chase those things. Dream of those things. Speak of those things and live in this deception that what is forbidden is but a fruit that is required to exist here.

Life is fading for us all. Enough of the time used to discredit Yeshua or find cracks in his gospel. Who else came and spoke of life eternally? You search the scriptures as if they speak of eternal life he said in his time to those that we’re familiar with scripture!! What do we believe God the Father truly wants for us? We all shall die here on this planet! So if he is the living God, wouldn’t he want his son to speak of life with him?! Of course, he would. As again its clear our end here is in death. Blessed is the one that finds life while in this flesh that has this bitter end promised to it.

This is not milk but rather a meat for the true follower of Christ.



This piece of writing comes with the sorrow of life on earth without someone close any longer. When death comes and your new reality is shaken to a degree that its hard to even receive it as real. You find out what your anchor is.  You find out what your heart has in it. Yes you find out who you are. The world goes on and so will those on earth. The majority on earth will be unaware of the wound your heart has received. Many will be  uncaring that it is. All of this will move you, and alter you if you are not anchored. The world and the enemy within it will look for these moments of weakness to hit you when you are wounded.  This is intended for evil but God allows it for good.

It is written that in our weaknesses he is made strong.  Despite being hurt I must still love. Have compassion for others and their hurts. My pain doesn’t dismiss the fact others exist in theirs. This idea was foreign to me. Actually living the opposite with far less hurt in me at one point but great selfishness there. Great offense. Yet in fact loving in spite of self is what following Christ looks like. Being anchored in him.

If we resist this, then we will surely find ourselves in offense. Surely finding ourselves in emotions without any form of control. The danger of feeling we have the right to be offended due to pain or hurts. This is dangerous because without self control and without an anchor, life can serve you a dish of rotten eggs.  Those rotten eggs will be forced to be eaten and you will be in pain when finished.  This is life in the flesh. No-one can avoid this. No amount of anti social behavior or desire to not care can keep anyone away from this reality of life.  It is the one thing regardless of who you are, we all have in common. That is flesh death.

The pain and sorrow of loosing a loved one that was close is a feeling that until you experience it you will never know who you truly are. I say this because it is the deepest pain and hurt you can feel. It is the most helpless feeling you can experience.  It changes you. It has the power to change you for better or worst.  Your anchor must be Christ. Christ is who keeps you the same even through this unique pain. Christ is who keeps you the same even when you are enduring this pain and another pain shows up to compound.  Only Christ can be this anchor.

It is written as Christ told us.  There was a man that built his house on sand and all was well until the storm came. The storm came and washed that home away. Then there was a man that built his house on a solid foundation and when the storms came and beat on the house it remained. This is the story of humankind that have a relationship with Christ and those that have a relationship with their own idea of a good character. Only a relationship with Christ can withstand any storm.  We see many storms going on throughout the world. Many are being blown here and there by these serious storms. I hope all that read this have, or are seeking the anchor of Christ.

Let us have grace and compassion for where all are in their path to this. But let us have a sense of urgency as I have seen how short life can be. How there is no promise of tomorrow.

I share this piece with pain and sorrow in the passing of my big brother Stephen. From witnessing his last breath, to doing his eulogy, it still doesn’t feel real. But it is.

Birthdays will not be the same anymore as we were born one year and one day apart. My birthday twin.  Sports will not be the same anymore as our talks about those Cowboys he was a fan of and the Giants whom I am fan of always kept good rival sports talk between us.  Now I have no desire to celebrate a birthday or watch football anymore. Among many other things that out-way those I have a wound.  A wound yes. Yet my Father says his grace is sufficient.  He will not remove this wound but has allowed it so that in this weakness I will always remember to lean on him, for in that he is made strong.

Life and death are the twins that are not identical but are forever tied together. With that said, true life in Christ is separated.  It stands alone. It is the anchor that grounds the faith. It has defeated death, and has removed its sting. Fear of it cannot reside with the joy of knowing you have eternal life in Christ.  I hope we all remember our anchor daily in life. Without it we are all adrift in a sea of this flesh life blown about wherever it sends us. May the peace of Christ and the comfort of the Holy Spirit be with all who believe during these last days.

In loving memory of my big brother Stephen. In Christ, rest peacefully.

I shall love you forever.
