Praise, Honor And Glory!!!

Praise, Honor And Glory!!!

“[Even] every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.”

Isaiah 43:7

Brothers and Sisters our Lives are to Bring Praise, Honor and Glory to God, that is, to God The Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit, whom are One! That means when I Awaken each and every day, that means as I Walk each and every day, that means when I Lie Down to Sleep each and every day! But in order for this to happen, you must Live A Surrendered Life In God. But as always the Choice Is Yours.

Each and every day and the length thereof I Praise Jesus for what He is doing in my Life. All things that come into my Life, My God has allowed and in those things I must Praise Him.

“He [is] thy praise, and he [is] thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.”

Deuteronomy 10:21

We may Not Understand what is going on in Our Lives, the Trials that we face, the Tribulations that we go through but in all of them Praise should be upon our lips, Knowing This One Thing…God Is In Control! Let us be Bold in Our Praise to Jesus, in All Situations, in All Events of Our Lives, let all give Praise to Jesus whom know the very Number of Hairs upon your head! You think that Praise is just when you are at Church; you think that Praise is only on Good Days, but Praise is an Eternal Action and Reaction that we must Choose To Do. There are times that Praise is the farthest thing on our minds, but it is something that should be on the Tip of our Lips All The Day Long!

God has, since the Beginning of Time, set forth Praise In His Actions and Expects, Demands Praise In Reaction From His Creation!

“Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.”

Psalm 148:5

Brothers and Sisters there is a difference in Praise and Honor, whereas Praise is being Thankful To Him Who Sits Upon The Throne, that is Jesus, The Christ, The Son Of God!

Honor is a Never Ending Story Being Written. It is Instilled In All Things Created By God, but there again, Your Choice. When The Father spoke things into being, He put in them action to Honor Him, The Creator, to Obey His Voice no matter what He Speaks, Honor is at hand.

“And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken.”

Deuteronomy 26:19

Honor, it is the Substance Of Who You Are. I have a Choice each and every day whether to Honor God, Honor Man, Honor My Self or Honor Satan. Honor is the Allegiance to Do and Say What God has said I ought to be like. If God says, Move to the Right, then In Honor I move to the Right, if He says Go, then In Honor, I will go. Honor is The Reaction Of Praise! For I have found The Two Are Inseparable. The more I Praise, the more I Honor, the more I Honor, the more I Praise! You need to Find Satisfaction In Honoring God, to Build that Relationship to All that you Do and Say bringing God Honor.

I go to work and Praise Jesus, Honoring Him Above My Job. When I am at home, behind closed doors,  I Honor Jesus. Where ever I go I will Honor Jesus above The Event, above The Situation, above All Mankind! It should start within you, your home then into the World!

Honor takes Tenacity, takes Responsibility and takes Accountability. Honor is Moving In The Grace that I have been given when my Sins were washed away. I will hold onto those things that God has given me and I will take account of whatever is given me, that, when I face Jesus, I will hear, “Thou Good And Faithful Servant, Enter Into The Joy Of Your Lord”.  Honor has given me a Place in Heaven and all of its splendor! Life or Death I Choose To Honor Jesus!

“Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take [it]; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.”

Psalm 7:5

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

John 14:15

“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”

Matthew 16:25

Honor, it does not mean that I have to like everything that I Do or Say, but it does mean that I Do or Say Whatsoever God Tells Me So To Do or Say. Honor, it is Who You Are!!!

Now Glory is the combination of Praise and Honor. Below is the Biblical Definition of Glory.

“Glory (a) everything that makes God Beautiful and Great. Curiously, this word is derived from a root with the basic meaning of heavy. Define glory public praise, honor, and fame in a sentence. The verb the dictionary definition of ‘glory’ often describes it as great praise, splendor, or honor.”

Glory is The Aftermath of Praise and Honor, the two cause an inter-twined reaction, like putting two chemicals together forming one. If one of the components, Praise or Honor, are missing, then Glory Cannot Happen. It takes the two to make the one.

I have been in Church many times and have had The Glory of God come in like a flood and I have found always that Praise and Honor where present and only then. I have had the Glory of God rest upon me in many different situations and I have found that I was In Praise and In Honor Of God when it has happened. Glory is the Final Resting Place of Praise and Honor!!!

“Give unto the LORD the glory [due] unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.”

1 Chronicles 16:29

“But thou, O LORD, [art] a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.”

Psalm 3:3

“Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.”

Psalm 29:2

Be Encouraged my Brothers and Sisters, it is in you to Praise, Honor and bring Glory to Jesus, you just need to let it Rise Up In Victory Over Your Life!!! Living a Surrender Life In Jesus, Building a Relationship with The Creator Of All Things Seen and Unseen!

Amen and Amen!!!

Mercy and Grace

 

Mercy And Grace

In this part of the world we are celebrating Christmas. First an insert about Christmas, Jesus was not Born on December 25th, according to Scripture we do not know the exact Date Our Savior came into this world, but we can estimate according to the period that Israel was in. The Historical Scholars seem to think that it was between March and November only because the Sheep and the Shepherds were out in the Fields, instead of being shut up for Winter. I will not get into any more detail about this, but it is because of the Birth of Jesus The Christ and the Mercy and Grace given to us, by His Birth.

“Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”

Galatians 2:16

“Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ,

(by grace ye are saved;)”

Ephesians 2:5

We, my Brothers and Sisters are Saved by Grace having Mercy from God The Father, through The Blood of Jesus, the Sacrificial Lamb Of God! Now, what does Mercy and Grace mean exactly to us whom have confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior? Here are the Definitions of both the Worlds point of view and the Biblical Understanding in the Greek.

 

The World’s Definition

Mercy: compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm; compassion or forbearance shown especially to an offender or to one subject to one’s power; imprisonment rather than death imposed as penalty for first-degree murder; a blessing that is an act of divine favor or compassion

a fortunate circumstance; compassionate treatment of those in distress; at the mercy of wholly in the power of with no way to protect oneself against

 

Grace: simple elegance or refinement of movement; the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings; do honor or credit to (someone or something) by one’s presence; unmerited divine assistance given to humans for their regeneration or sanctification; a virtue coming from God; a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine assistance; APPROVAL, FAVOR stayed in his good graces

MERCY, PARDON; a special favor : PRIVILEGE each in his place, by right, not grace, shall rule his heritage— Rudyard Kipling; disposition to or an act or instance of kindness, courtesy, or clemency; a temporary exemption REPRIEVE; a charming or attractive trait or characteristic Among disagreeable qualities he possessed the saving grace of humor; a pleasing appearance or effect CHARM all the grace of youth; ease and suppleness of movement or bearing danced with such grace; used as a title of address or reference for a duke, a duchess, or an archbishop; a short prayer at a meal asking a blessing or giving thanks

 

The Biblical Definition

Mercy: to have mercy on; to help one afflicted or seeking aid; to help the afflicted, to bring help to the wretched; to experience mercy

Grace: that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness: grace of speech good will, loving-kindness, favour of the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues; what is due to grace; the spiritual condition of one governed by the power of divine grace; the token or proof of grace, benefit; a gift of grace; benefit, bounty; thanks, (for benefits, services, favours), recompense, reward

There are a few differences, but both the Worldly View and The Godly View are close. The bottom line is this; we Live By Grace, having Mercy on All, even as God has done this very thing toward us, basically that, All of us deserve to go to Hell for our Transgressions that we have done against God. Praise Jesus that He, through the Fathers Love, brought Grace to us and finding Mercy By The Hand Of God and not by anything we do or could do.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Matthew 6:14-15

Mercy: it is so hard for us as frail Humans to Walk In. We think that we are Justified to pass Judgement because of the Actions Done To Us or Our Loved Ones. Mercy does not just happen, it requires a Sacrifice of one’s self to put aside those things that bring Offense. Jesus said that if we Do Not Forgive, we Will Not Be Forgiven, there is no IF, MAYBE, this is an Absolute From God. Jesus came into this World a Living Sacrifice for our Sins, our Transgressions Against The God Head (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), and Forgiving Us No MATTER THE SIN and so must we.

Now how long does this Mercy go, how far must I go? Peter had the same question, the same concern, the same Fleshly Attributes that we all have.

21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.”

Matthew 18:21-22

Mercy, even tho I might think that I am Justified to be Angry, to Punish, to Cut Off, to do Acts Of Violence… I AM NOT JUSTIFIED but ONLY TO HAVE MERCY!!! If I want to Obtain Mercy from God, then I must Give Mercy to those whom in my eyes are Justified to have Restitution For There Sin Against ME! If I do Unmerciful things to gain some sort of satisfaction, then, I am Found By God To Be Judged Likewise for MY SINS against Him!

Now understand this. You Must have Forgiveness, Mercy towards Mankind, but that does not mean that you have to be their Friend, Companion or that you must Like Them. What Mercy does is keep each of us Clean, keeps Unrighteous Judgment out of the soul. It is being Like our God.

Now one question that has come up, there are some who think that in order for a person to obtain Mercy, they must First Ask for Mercy. NO THAT IS NOT RIGHT! Nowhere will find Jesus saying that. We give Mercy to the Undeserving that in some way, some fashion they may find Mercy the same as we have.

Mercy is Not Getting What YOU Deserve, Grace is Getting What You NOW Deserve. The two Walk Hand-in-Hand you cannot find the one without the other being present as well.

“But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”

Genesis 6:8

How did Noah find Grace in The Father? It was because of his Faithful Walk With God! Noah upheld God in the Highest Fashion in Life, and because of that, when God wanted to destroy all of mankind, God gave to Noah a way of Escape from The Judgement. As we Live and Breathe we have Found Grace through the Blood of Jesus, we are Blessed beyond measure! Jesus has given to us a Better Life, a more Abundant Life to Live!

9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.”

John 10:9-10

By Grace, we have an Abundant Life and that is only found In Jesus! But…But… If I Do Not follow His Commandments then I will Lose My Life. If I do not have Mercy on others, I will not have Mercy when I Die! Jesus said, If YOU LOVE ME…

Now what does Love me have to do with Mercy and Grace? It has everything to do with it.

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

John 14:15-21

The key is in verse 21, “He that hath my commandments and keepeth them…”. We have been given the Commandment to Have Forgiveness Regardless of the Circumstances and we have no choice but to Do The Commandment. In these the Last Days of the Gentiles, it is becoming harder to Walk in this Mercy, to show Mercy to those who are undeserving. I have found myself not having Mercy at times and have to repent, I have to make a Conscious Choice to do so and at times it is very hard…but God!

We need to understand, Brothers and Sisters, that this World is going to get worse and worse, that the Righteousness of God is becoming less and less, but all of these things must come to pass before Jesus will return for His Bride, that is us! We must Endure In Mercy, giving Grace as we can, even as God has done for us. We must keep our Eyes On Jesus, be Led By The Holy Spirit, Follow The Scriptures in order to make it in this World.

Read Matthew chapter 10, it gives us a glimpse of what must happen. Regardless the Road, Regardless the Path we must Obey God, to do what He Desires and what He Commands us to do!

Amen and Amen!!!

Not My Will…

Not My Will…

Brothers and Sisters are you more concerned about Your Will then that of Jesus’s Will? Do you Walk In Obedience or do you pick and choose what you are Willing To Do or Willing To Say and even Willing Where To Go. The Church has been so wishy washy in its Stand In Jesus’s Will, The Fathers Will that when you put the Heathen next to a Christian and inspect the Fruit, there is very little difference between the two.

Brothers and Sisters, The Blood Of Jesus Is Holy, it Is Pure and has the Cleansing Power to wash our sins away, meaning that what we should have been Judged For, we will now Receive Freedom, that is Grace! Does this not mean anything to you? The Sacrifice that Jesus gave is Worthy Of All Praise, Worthy Of All Obedience, Worthy Of All… So what this means is that when Jesus shed His Blood, it Covered Me Whole, making me Clean Without Sin in MY Spirit, not my Flesh, not my Soul.

Now understand this, My Flesh, My Soul fight against the Will Of Jesus all of the time, always wanting to fulfill its own desires.

“[This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”

Galatians 5:16

 

“For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”

1 John 2:16

 

“But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous [are they], selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.”

2 Peter 2:10

 

We must On A Daily Walk, Crucify The Flesh. We must Daily Examine our Deeds, our Speech and see if they line up with Jesus’s Will, that they Glorify The Father. There are times when Jesus will lead us into an area of being uncomfortable and we want to leave, run away, find comfort in the flesh, but what we do Not See, Nor Understand is that Jesus Looks and Sees The End Of A Thing, The End Of Time. Jesus Knows those things that Will Bring Him Glory and Glorify To The Father. In order for this to happen we must Let Go Of Our Will and Allow Jesus’s Will to Manifest It’s Self In Us.

How do we do this? How do I Crucify The Flesh Daily? How do I Find The Will Of Jesus For Me?

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:”

Matthew 7:7

 

This is the First step of many. You must have a Desire to Build A Relationship With Jesus, to Let Go and Let Him Lead You, Teach You His Father’s Ways. There should be a Transformation of Your Will to Jesus’s Will, that You Desire to do His Will above All Things!

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Romans 12:1-2

 

It Is Not Easy, It Is Not Fun, and It Is Not Popular to do The Will Of God! Stop and think about Athletes they have to Work Hard, Endure Pain, Endure a Lack of Social Pleasure to Gain Their Desire. Most have a Desire to Look Good, Feel Good in Their Eyes and in Other People’s Eyes, they do not want to be an outcast, they want to Belong! They want to be Accepted into a World of Pride.

If I Ask, if I Seek and if I Knock then I also must be Willing To Do anything, less is Not Worthy to God.

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it]. 15 If ye love me,

keep my commandments.”

John 14:14-15

The two walk hand-n-hand, Ask anything and I will do it, if You Keep My Commandments. When you Keep The Commandments of Jesus, you are Keeping The Commandments Of The Father and Of The Holy Spirit because they ARE ONE! If you are Keeping the Commandments of Jesus then He Will do what you ask, because now you are not asking to fulfill the flesh, but to fulfill the Spirit Of God. Too many people have mislead the Church into Believing that you can ask for anything based on this Scripture in John 14:14 and that because Jesus said it, He Has To Do It… THIS IS A LIE!!! All things Must Be According to Jesus Will, not yours, All Things Must Bring Glory To The Father!

“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name [is] Jealous,

[is] a jealous God:”

Exodus 34:14

 

God Is A Jealous God, He will not allow you to have anything before Him, and All Things Must Bring Him Glory! Examine your Lives not according to your will, but according to The Word Of God and His Holy Spirit, not according to Other People less they speak the truth based upon God’s Holy Word. God will not force you to do anything, you must be Willing To Want A Relationship With Him, in doing so, and you Must Be Obedient to His Leading, to His Word and to His Spirit.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

Galatians 2:20

Integrity And Tenacity

Integrity And Tenacity

Integrity – “The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. The state of being whole and undivided.”

Tenacity – “the quality or fact of being able to grip something firmly, the quality or fact of being very determined; determination, the quality or fact of continuing to exist; persistence.”

6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it.”

Isaiah 55:6-11

Brothers and Sisters we need to Walk and Speak with Integrity, to be Different than the World Is, we should in one sense stick out like a sore thumb. When people see us they should know pretty quickly that there is something different than they are, and, even as most people are. There are, however, a few things that we should Blend Into. Our Lives should always Represent Strong Moral Principles, but NOT as the World would count it, but as God IS!

We must always keep in mind that Our Ways are not necessarily Gods Ways and with that in our mind we must always be Willing To Change To Gods Ways, having this understanding that we are not going to understand Gods Full Plan in our Lives. There are times He will have you Go, Speak and Do things that in the beginning makes no Logical Sense, But God sees beyond the Current and sees The End Of A Thing.

We must also understand that God Is NOT DIVIDED! The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit Are One, which means that Whatever The Father Speaks, so will The Son and The Holy Spirit and whatever The Holy Spirit Speaks, it is What Jesus Speaks and Jesus only Speaks those things that His Father Has Said! They Will NOT Contradict each other, no matter what, They Are One!

Two things that you MUST Understand. Firstly, there should not be 14 Million Church’s all Speaking and Doing THEIR OWN THING! Secondly, if The Holy Spirit Speaks and says Thus, He will not go and tell someone else something that is in Contradiction to the other person. If He was to do that, then God would be a Lunatic, being Divided within Himself!

Now before anyone gets on their High Horse, I know that The Holy Spirit will speak one thing dealing with a Scripture and to another person speak something different on the same Scripture, you need to understand that the Two Are One, they are Different Perspectives dealing with the Individual, but both lead To God, having the Same Answer! In this it deals with the Maturity Of The Person. An example: The Holy Spirit may tell someone to Have Faith and give $10.00 to someone, but it would be hard, to another person He may say give $1000.00 but that would be are to them, but not $10.00. Both are Identical, they both deal with Faith In God and the amounts make no difference. The same Principal deals with Scripture, one Verse can mean one thing to one person, and the same Scripture Verse can mean, what seems, a total different thing. But if you see through God’s Eyes, they both mean the same thing, but deal with each person at a level of their understanding, of what they can deal with. A scripture will tell you something specific to your needs at the time.

God is Integrity! Meaning He Has, Is and Will Always deal with everything In Integrity.

“God [is] not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do [it]? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”

Numbers 23:19 

“And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he [is] not a man, that he should repent.”

1 Samuel 15:29 

34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. 35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.”

Psalm 89:34-35 

16 For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation [is] to them an end of all strife. 17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed [it] by an oath: 18 That by two immutable things, in which [it was] impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: 19 Which [hope] we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; 20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, [even] Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.”

Hebrews 6:16-20

In order for us to Walk In Integrity, we Must Have Tenacity. We must Hold On to God, His Word and His Ways, gripping them so tight that there is No Gaps in Our Lives. Having Tenacity is a Rare Quality, for most people. People are wishy washy, being moved by fleshly means and fleshly Principles. I’ll pick on one subject, Sports. Let there be some sort of Football, Soccer, Baseball or Basketball game on and God is put in the corner, is in Time Out.

There are a lot of Blood Bought people who have made Sports their God. They push it in and on their children as a Good Thing, but in reality is a very destructive life style. Sports have caused more fights, more arguments, more separations and more divorces than any other thing, that is mostly in the United States. It has caused “ “ Pastors, to gear their sermons based on Time and Season, NOT God! People give up God for this or that having NO Tenacity in them except for those things that make them a part of Man, Society and Satan’s Plans.

Now, it is not only Sports that has caused this, there are many other things, such as Money, Jobs, Recreations and the list goes on. But WE, That is, THE BLOOD BOUGHT, should not be a part of this type of Life Style, no matter the topic. We should Hold To The Principles Of God, Walking In Integrity and Tenacity above All Things! We are to PUT God ABOVE ALL THINGS! No matter the size, no matter who, no matter of the desire, God is a Jealous God, demanding Full Attention.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me; 6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

Exodus 20:3-6

Integrity and Tenacity Walk Hand-n-Hand. In God they are inseparable, they are Attributes that make God who God is! If we, that is, The Blood Bought, have made Jesus Lord, then…WHAT ARE YOU DOING? What Gods have you put Above The ONLY True God, What Sacrifices have you made to them!

Now, here comes a mind blower, it is not only the Physical Things that cause a lack of Integrity and Tenacity, it can be your thoughts, your actions in everyday Life. What do you Think About, What do you Meditate On, Who are your Friends and Who Is YOUR Family? All of these things can and do bring a Lack Of Integrity and Tenacity in a person’s Life. These are Elements that become Gods! It is the Inner Things, that Make The Outer Things Alive!

How far do these things reach…

“Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear [the guilty]; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth [generation].”

Exodus 34:7 

8 Thou shalt not make thee [any] graven image, [or] any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the waters beneath the earth: 9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me, 10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.”

Deuteronomy 5:8-10

21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against [their] parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22 And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. 23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.”

Matthew 10:21-23 

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes [shall be] they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”

Matthew 10:34-39

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:37-39

In all of the above Scriptures, the one thing that makes us Loose Integrity and Tenacity is… Man’s Personal Walk With God. Most Christians like to use the last Scripture and say there is nothing that can separate us from God, but if you look at the Scripture correctly, there is one thing, Man’s Free Will, Man’s Choice To Do or Not To Do.

I have seen lies destroy relationships to the second, third and fourth generations. I have seen God’s House accept things as truth when they are a lie.

To the Five Fold, I Rebuke You! For you have taught the generations not to Honor God, but to honor the flesh, the world!

8 The priests said not, Where [is] the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after [things that] do not profit.” 

10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.” 

1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.”

Jeremiah 2:8; 12:10; 23:1

Where is it found the Integrity and Tenacity of God’s House! To those who have Ears to Hear what the Spirit saith Blessed are you!

God Is … God Is … God IS Calling for His People to Stand, to be The Head not the tail, to be A People that bring Honor to Him not shame. Is Integrity and Tenacity going to Cost You…YES YES YES it will! But are you willing to lose your life for the lack of Integrity, the lack of Tenacity? I have many, many, many people that Hate me because of it, including my own flesh and blood. But I desire and strive to Have A Relationship with God that is Unspeakable, yet Spoken Very Loud. I am a Living Epistle showing those around me Whom God is IN ME!

Weigh your Thoughts, Actions, Friends, Acquaintances and Family, are any of these your god? Are any of these things put upon a pedestal; are any of these guiding you into Disobedience?

You must Weigh Integrity by God’s Holy Word, by His Holy Spirit and you must Live Out The Word In Your Life with Tenacity, never letting go, no matter what the cost. Your Reward will be Great!

As always, your Choice, God is waiting as long as He can, then the Door will shut. The Age Of The Gentiles is closing…are you ready?

Amen and Amen!!!

Change Is A Must!

Change Must Happen!

 

 

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.”

1 Corinthians 9:24

 

My Brothers and Sisters we Run In A Race against Time, against the Adversaries Plots to undermine Our Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus, The Christ, and the Work Of The Holy Spirit. We must do all that we can to undergo Change, not only for our sakes but even for those who are around us that we Bare Witness that Jesus has Saved us from the Evils Of This World. That All That We Do and All That We Say will be a Living Testimony to All.

 

In order for this to happen we must Make Jesus Lord of our Lives and we must Surrender Our Will to God’s Will. It is not easy to say “NO” to Self and we Can NOT do it on our own, but it takes a willingness on our part to conform to God’s Will, to Allow The Holy Spirit to Teach Us and Direct Us in the Things Of God.

 

“Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.”

Luke 22:42

 

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

Matthew 6:21

 

 

“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.”

Mark 8:35

 

You, my Brothers and Sisters, can measure your Relationship With Jesus. How do you Conduct Your Selves In Every Day Life? Is Jesus always your First Thought, or is He an Afterthought, or, do you even Think On His Will at all? All of you Part Time Christians are going to be in for a rude awakening. Jesus Demands Full Attention In All Things concerning your Life. He is NOT a Part Time God, But is The Son Of God The Father whom Died IN YOUR PLACE and Rose Again giving us Everlasting Life In Heaven with Him!!!

 

“Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.”

Proverbs 7:2

 

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

John 14:15

 

“If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.”

John 15:10

 

Now what is it that I must Change…EVERYTHING! Divide everything into Two Categories and only two. Everything in this World and Heaven will fall into one of these two categories. The Two Categories are these: God’s Will and Satan’s Will, these are the only Two Categories, Man’s Will falls into one of these.

If I … If I ….. If I …….. then that is the Direction That I Have Chosen. God The Father, since our Creation has given us a Free Will to Serve Him, to Make Decisions, to Choose Our Direction and God…Will Let Us Do, Say or Go wherever we Desire. A Godly Person will Always Ponder For God’s Will, not only in Their Life, but also in The Lives Of Others, Seeking God While He is Yet Found!

 

5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation [that] thou knowest not, and nations [that] knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee. 6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it.”

Isaiah 55:5-11

 

 

We must consider every moment of the Day The Lord Jesus’ Will. For those whom are Truly Saved By Grace will do this, they will have a Draw In Their Spirit to Do God’s Will. If you do not have this Draw, then you MUST Seek The Lord Jesus that YOUR DESIRES CHANGE to be HIS DESIRES! Jesus will not force you, YOU MUST SEEK TO CHANGE, it will not just happen on its own!!

 

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Romans 12:1-2

 

This is a Foundational Scripture for All Those Who Seek God’s Will, that is, they must come to a Realization that Who They Are, Is NOT What Gods Desire Is For YOU! We MUST CHANGE! We cannot continue to Live our lives as we choose to, but must Ask, Seek and Knock for God’s Will IN ALL THINGS!

 

Let me give you a personal example. Usually on Sundays, after my morning prayers, I start to write the Message that The Lord wants me to write. This morning, after my prayers, I had a desire to make my wife and I breakfast and I was going to do that after writing this message, but The Holy Spirit said, to do it before the message…so I did. Now what is the signification of this … I DO NOT KNOW but this ONE THING, God Said! This is MY Relationship that I have With God, He Speaks, I Do or Say! It is not up to me, that is, If I Surrender To HIM and DESIRE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM!

 

Does this mean that I will never fall or that I will never fail to do His Will? NO it does not. It is always a Battle Every MOMENT OF THE DAY to Do God’s Will In MY LIFE! You ask why? If I am a True Vessel of God then Satan Hates me and everything that touches my Life, because again, if I have Surrendered My Life to Jesus, then ALL THAT I AM IS IN IN IN IN HIM!!! Satan Hates you even as he Hates God The Father!

 

Two things you must understand, firstly; that there is always a Battle that rages inside of you to do God’s Will, and the second thing; you are not alone to Fight This Battle. Paul said it best in the following Scripture.

 

 

1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also [in the likeness] of [his] resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with [him], that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13 Neither yield ye your members [as] instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members [as] instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. 15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.”

Romans 6:1-19

 

As I have said, we do not have to do this by ourselves, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to Teach Us and Direct and Guide Us in to God’s Holy Will for Our Lives.

 

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; … 26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:”

John 14:16, 26 & John 15:26

 

God is ON OUR SIDE! He wants us to Do His Will, but we must be willing to Change and to Do His Will Change Is A Must, it is not a Choice any longer! If I Proclaim The Name Of Jesus As LORD and SAVIOR then He MUST BE in ALL Attributes of my Life! Too many people pick and choose what they will allow God to take control of and if that is you, then you DO NOT HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM!!! It is similar to having a Relationship with my Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Wife, Husband, in order for me to Have A Relationship With Them, then I must Know Them, be A Part of their Lives, be Willing to make Changes For Them, but With God IT IS so much MORE SO!!!

 

As always, the Choice Is Yours! But this I know, you will have NO EXCUSSES when you stand before Jesus, you will not be able to say you did not know. The Bible is a Relational Document, it allows us to Draw Close to God, to Know Him and His Attributes with The Holy Spirits help and now I have told you likewise.

 

 

Be of Good Cheer… there is still Hope!

Amen and Amen!!!
