Here’s The Message!

Here’s The Message!

We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. Now, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destine for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of age understood it, for if they had, they would have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”–the things God has prepared for those who love him–these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. I Corinthians 3:6-10 NIV

The message that we need to hear more than anything else is a message of love, integrity, and honor. That message will drive out the hatred that dwells in the hearts of so many who called themselves the alt-right and white nationalists groups who proclaim to be Christians.

How can they claim to be Christians and hate? They’re not really Christians; they’re religious and use the Bible and Christianity to try to control and dehumanize others.  We are not blind or deaf to the “noise” and chatter that promotes and encourages foul acts of violence against others. We know that trump’s election was a ploy for the white nationalists to put into place their own agenda of denying anyone who is brown or black the privileges and rights that prevail in this country.

They want to “purify” the country, by eliminating other cultures and groups of people to thrive here. This is no different that other countries trying to “purify” their countries by killing off those who are not like them. Now, they want to decry foul against affirmative action claiming rural white Americans have an opioid problem because of it.

There is no sane rationale for any white person to claim “discrimination” in this country when they have had opportunities denied to people of color and various ethnicities for centuries. The discrimination claims are biased and steeped in racism as depicted by the racist Jeff Sessions.

So, if the message is not love–unconditionally–all the nationalists and alt-right groups can expect to never know what God’s plans are for them other than to know, they are doomed because of their hatred of all God created.

For those who think this post is harsh; it is and it is because of love that I speak truth to the devil so all of his minions will know–I’m onto them and so are many others. We will not be silent and allow hatred to reign in this country. This is America and as Americans, we will fight for the rights of all Americans and beat down racist discriminatory acts against people of all races. And for the WH idiot to say, “the White House is a dump” demonstrates his lack of respect for the government and institutions that keep this country great. He should leave with no further comment and go back to his tower, and suck on his hatred away from other human beings.

We are the true Christians–defending the rights of the poor, needy and vulnerable and we do not act out of religious piety that serves no purpose. All human beings are God’s creation, and no one has a right to dehumanize another. We will remove the hatred from the White House and all those in positions appointed by the hater–influenced by Bannon and Miller.

And when we do, we will set the stage for the renewal of a mindset that cares about people; especially if I’m elected president in 2020. Watch out haters! A change is coming in the BlueWave Tsunami in 2018 and beyond. We care about all of God’s people, not just some.

Is Solomon Speaking To Us Now?

Is Solomon Speaking To Us Now?

Out in the open wisdom calls aloud; she raises her voice in the public square; on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech: How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings, But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you–when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you. Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me, since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord. Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways, and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm. Proverbs 1:20-33 NIV

The question–is Solomon speaking to us now, can be answered quite literally if we’re honest about what we see on a daily basis.

The first chapter in Proverbs is dedicated to understanding the role of wisdom and what happens when we don’t exercise wisdom. This segment–referenced above–puts us–all Believers in a position to see why America is in the shape it is in–and possibly the world.

Let me break this down a little further–when we–those who call themselves Christians–lie on God, we end up with the only possible consequence of our lying–God ignoring us and allows the calamities of our own rebellion to overtake us. God is not mocked nor deceived by lying tongues, but He will allow our lies to make fools of us. Though I have categorically denied that God chose trump to be president of the United States, I have to include myself in the throng of Believers–who didn’t do enough to persuade others that God does not intervene in our choices. He allows us to make the choices and allows us to handle the consequences of our actions.

What I see in the constantly unfolding events in the political arena and the rise of hatred in the land is the result of wickedness and lies promoted by those who claim to know God. Let me say this again (and I’ll probably say it often)–GOD IS PRO-CHOICE! He honors and choices and allows us to deal with the results–in every area of our lives–not just as it pertains to abortion, elections, marriage–but in everything.

When Christian Believers (the Evangelicals who lied) acknowledge that God allows us choices, then perhaps, they can also begin to repent and rescind the notion that trump was God’s choice–unless they are totally blinded by hate and bigotry and want to see the chaos continue.

I’m no more perfect than any other, but I do accept my limitations and acknowledge them. I depend upon my relationship with God to do the right thing at all times, but when I stray, He won’t pull me back unless I submit to His pull. That’s how He operates–with our submission to Him. He does not coerce, bully or bribe us to do anything; nor does He belittle or humiliate us–we do that on our own when we refuse to hear Him and obey.

At all times–we must speak truth whether we agree with truth or not–because truth will set us free from all the stupidity we now see. Truth can and will come through various people–both Republicans and Democrats (Conservatives and Liberals), but we must be open to hearing it and acting upon it or we’ll cease to exist as a nation since truth has surfaced, the Russian interference into our election and the erosion of our democracy was planned years ago. They deliberately established relationships with those who–out of their greed and need for power–were easily influenced and duped into doing their will–not God’s.

All of this is easily discovered with a little time taken to research it, so there is no need for anyone to just take my word for it. Once research is undertaken and truth is known, what should we do with it?

I’ve known the truth all along and have my blogs to verify what I’ve been saying and now I implore all who know truth to assert themselves into the throng of existing chaos and confusion and promote truth–if we don’t change direction soon, we will no longer be the United States of America–a sovereign nation, but under the command of the Russians.

Now, can we honestly answer the question, “Is God talking to us?” Yes, because He is and will continue to speak to us through His Word and through Holy Spirit, if we’re willing to listen. If we don’t listen, we have only ourselves to blame for the calamities that will overwhelm us. As a society of civilized people, we can no longer allow ideologies and emotions to rule us; we must develop critical thinking skills and know how to determine when sources are credible or not–facts and evidence matters. Any news source that promotes hatred of anyone for any reason–is not a credible source of information; it will be biased based upon the hatred they promote. 

Therefore, I beseech every reader to reflect upon their relationship with God and know His truth and make all decisions pertaining to life and living upon that fact–proven through His Word.

In 2020, remember maintaining our democracy will depend upon all those who seek truth and promote it, rather than fuel ideological beliefs that have no foundation in truth according to God’s Word. I’m counting on the wisdom of God to lead us all in turning away the whirlwind that will overtake us if we don’t act. If we actively #resist the devil, and submit to God, we will know victory!

Understanding Choice and Choosing!

Understanding Choice and Choosing!

“Now fear the LORD and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD. But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”Then the people answered, “Far be it from us to forsake the LORD to serve other gods! It was the LORD our God himself who brought us and our parents up out of Egypt, from that land of slavery, and performed those great signs before our eyes. He protected us on our entire journey and among all the nations through which we traveled. And the LORD drove out before us all the nations, including the Amorites, who lived in the land. We too will serve the LORD, because he is our God.” Joshua 24:14-18 NIV

“Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me, since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD. Proverbs 1:28,29 NIV

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray. Proverbs 12:26 NIV

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. John 15:16 NIV

For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do—living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. 1 Peter 4:3 NIV

From the beginning–in the Garden of Eden–God has given us choice–He provides us with instruction, but He does not make choices for us. With the right to choose-we also endure the consequences of our actions. There is always an equal reaction for every action so we can choose to do good and receive good or we can choose to do wrong and receive the consequences for it.

Once again, I reject the notion that God chose Donald J. Trump to be president of this great as some have erroneously claimed and the proof–the foundation for my rejection–is coming to the surface and will expose all those who lied to put him in a position of leadership–when his past and current actions–informed all who had discerning spirits–those who heard Holy Spirit–from the beginning.

Let me be clear on this point! With the vast majority of true Believers–those who love The Lord and live according to His Word–there had to have been at least one person–God would have chosen to lead a great nation. God’s choice would have a been person whose heart belonged to Him, not a person who lies about everything, including the lies. But then that’s what a pathological liar does–they think everything they say is true and don’t recognize they are lying. The lying alone should have alerted–Holy Spirit believers to turn away from such a person, since we know God hates liars! But since there are those in the “Christian Community” who forged ahead, promoting the notion that God is somehow opposed to His Own Word–we now have to deal with the Blatant-Liar-in-Chief (for the moment).

Whether people believe what I’ve just stated is not really a matter of concern for me. I know what God says in His Word and I know–He will never encourage anyone who belongs to Him to live in opposition to His Word.

The truth of the matter is–and while many have observed and acknowledged it–others have ignored it–there are neurotransmitters in Trump’s brain that are not connecting. He suffers from a cognitive disability that those close to him are trying to keep hidden. But once again, to the discerning person who actually pays attention to his speech patterns, lack of inability to focus, lack of impulse control and need for praise and attention–we know! And why a psychological evaluation is not part of the vetting process is a source of amazement to me.

I could go on about the Russian connection that I suspected months ago and even wrote about, but now that the media is finally covering it–I won’t say much more at this point. I choose not to say more–for the moment.

But getting back to those who promoted Trump as God’s choice and pushed congregations to vote for him, I have a few questions: Did people know they were voting for the entire family–the adult children to run the White House? Did people know that his cabinet picks would be some of the most vile people who ever walked the earth? Did people know that instead of draining the swamp, he’d fill it with scum from the bottom of the swamp who are only interested in demolishing the government? Did they know? Were they told?

Jesus told us, “by our love for one another would others recognize us–belonging to Him.” Does anyone see in love coming forth from any of the “religious sect-headed for the White House?” I see greed and cronyism abounding as all determine how they can destroy lives fo many, and help only themselves and their immediate families.

Wake up America! There is no reason for God to oppose Himself and He most certainly did not “choose” Trump–those who want to control others–chose Trump and they lied to everyone else to insure they voted for him–gullible people chose Trump, not God. The proof–is evident for everyone not wearing blinders!

And remember–not everyone saying, “Lord, Lord” will enter into Heaven. Some will hear, “Depart from me–I never knew you!”

Remembering Those Who Speak God’s Word!

“Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and forever. Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings.” (Hebrews 13: 7-9 NIV)

People remember others for many things–the good and the bad–but when it comes to living a life that is pleasing to God and encourages others to desire to please Him, we are reminded to–remember those who speak God’s Word.

However, we tend to remember those accused of immorality, corruptibility, and foolishness–we remember their deeds, and with the memory, most can never recall them ever serving our awesome wise God. So, why are we remembering them–not just constantly bringing them to the forefront of our memories, but bringing them to light so others will also remember–all the bad stuff.

We are quick to remember those in leadership who did things that became a matter of public criticism–Clinton and Lewinsky, come to mind and then there are so many others that I cannot recall their names or what they did, but if someone reminded me, I’d probably remember. The issue for me is–and this is not a political statement–is that regardless of what people do, if they are not living a life that’s pleasing to God or encouraging others to do so–why should we care?

We are living in an era in which access to information is immediate. And without taking the time to carefully dissect, analyze what we hear, we sometimes become the unwitting participate in the spreading of gossip and innuendo that irreparably harm others. We take allegations with no proof and spread them like an uncontrollable wildfire. We make people guilty of things that have never brought conviction upon them. And when some don’t agree with an opinion of others–daring to not agree with them–we slice and dice, and resort to name-calling and personal attacks and then think we are superior to those we attack.

The only information that should concern us–the Gospel of Jesus Christ–and those who speak The Word–encouraging us to live a life pleasing to God and not just to beat us over the head with it. One of the most interesting things I’ve ever witnessed is for some (well-known) preachers to beat people over the head with The Word, criticize others for being caught up and exposed in sin, and then have their own sins exposed for all the world to see–after they have openly judged others for their wrong-doing. This is one of the reasons we are told to not judge others for their mistakes for we are all subject to failing in areas of our lives.

We should not openly condemn people for drinking and driving if we get up every Sunday morning, preaching the Word to others, but unable to do so, without a little help from a bottle. We should not openly condemn people for living in sin (any type of sin) if we’re doing the same thing, but think we’re hiding it from the world. One of the reasons many don’t believe The Word is because they have only paid attention to the hypocrisy seen in those who proclaim The Gospel, but don’t know how to live the life.

So we come to this passage of scripture–remember those leaders who speak the Word and live it before all. Are we the type of leader who speaks The Word and people will remember us for speaking it and living it? Or are we the type of leader people will remember for all our wrong-doing?

If we live a life according to The Word we speak–our lives indeed will be memorable–and people will share what they remember to the Glory of God when they think of us. They will remember The Word we live more than The Word we speak.

Here’s a preview of what some of the notable preachers are doing and what some think of them (criticizing without proof), and my own thoughts about, preachers. myBook.to/Preachers I pray you’ll enjoy and write a review.

The Lord Determines Righteousness!

“And Abram believed the LORD, and the LORD counted him as righteous because of his faith.”

There are many things that many people do and believe that makes them believe they are righteous. The problem with what we believe that makes us anything is that if it does not align with God’s Word, it doesn’t count.

The works of our hands–do not make us righteous in the eyes of the Lord.

We cannot just say–things that will keep us in right standing with God.

We cannot just do–works of repentance that will keep us in right standing with God.

It is our faith in God and in what He has said that keeps us in right standing with God. Our faith and belief have to align with God’s Word no matter what “people” say or do. If our faith is in man–any church leader–male or female–then our faith is misplaced. There is no human being who has obtained the Wisdom of God to the point they are wiser than God.

We must be careful then in whom we place our faith. Man–in all the fickleness of mind–changes what they believe and attempt to change all others who have demonstrated faith in them.

We cannot have more faith in our flawed political system or our imperfect politicians than God.

We cannot have more faith in the justice system or the justices who are appointed to be just when they are not, when they oppose God.

We cannot have more faith in our spouses than we have in God because mere human beings are subject to imperfection.

When our faith–nothing wavering–is completely centered in God, we cannot go wrong and He will count us as righteous because we are totally reliant upon Him to guide us in all things.

No matter what the Pope says, the Supreme Court Justices say, the President says, the church leaders, the legislators, the ACLU, community activists, no one should have the final say over what we do or in whom we have faith. If our faith is misplaced because of following people, then we surely cannot please God. If we have developed and established a Relationship with God, we will hear Him when He speaks and know that He is the only One we can be sure of–He never changes His mind.

Lord Jesus, help us to understand and to keep our focus on You so You will count us as righteous in Your sight because of our faith in You!

When No Relationship Exists!

In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” (Judges 17:6)

Considering all the events in this country for the last two years, we are living “in those days” when no one in authority has a right relationship with God. That’s basically what the writer in Judges is saying. When no relationship exists with God, men (mankind) do whatever they want to do and then chaos reigns. We know that chaos reigns in the midst of our society–especially in the United States–because of the decisions that “men” have made to pacify flesh with no regard to doing what is right in God’s sight–only their own.

When no relationship with God exists–men legalize sin–in all sorts of manners (condoning same-sex relationships, drug use, pornography, prostitution, all manner of whoredom) and then the same people who applauded the legalization of sin–condemn anyone who dares to disagree with them–spouting their first amendment rights. What happened to the first amendment rights of Christians? Are we not citizens in this country, eligible for the protections of the same laws? Or is it that only the anti-Christ are in position to change laws to appease flesh and promote hatred of those to speak what God says? There appears to be a double-standard here, but only those in relationship with God can see it.

When no relationship with God exists–confusion enters in and takes control. Men and women are confused and promote the confusion in the schools and community so that children also become confused. God is not the author of confusion, but we know that Satan is. Unfortunately, the devil has blinded the eyes of those who follow him and they do not see the pit he is digging for them and by the time they realize what has happened, it will be too late.

When no relationship with God exists–men are subject to the debilitation of all manner of sickness and disease that  occurs, in many instances, as a result of sinful living. There are some who would argue this point, but the bottom line for sin is this–“the wages of sin is death.” God is not mocked! We can do whatever we want to do–but in the end, God’s Word will not come back void, and it will perform all that it says it will.

When a right relationship exists with God, peace and prosperity reign in the land. Healing exists for those in right relationship with God. Love for all mankind and God exists for those in right relationship with God. Wisdom exists for all those in right relationship with God. Insight exists for all those in right relationship with God. For all who are not in right relationship with God–they lack the wisdom of God to see the conclusion of the matter. They have forgotten the history of mankind and sin and what God does and they are therefore, doomed to repeat the tragedies of the past.

Father, in the name of Jesus, help us to see the need to stay in right relationship with You. Remove the scales from the eyes of those who have been deceived so they can see the end of their lives, right now. Strengthen the minds, hearts, and determination of all who are in right relationship with You to stay the course You have established for us. Thank You for loving us enough to give us one more chance to get living for You right.
