Sin is the way we are kept captive to others and controlled by some. We are taught the Ten Commandments so we can say look that is a Sin or that something is not right. The enemy has been in this world since the start and He is the ruler that we do not see who has been steering us like sheep by making us think we know what God really is and that we can just trust that God will save us. We have to search for the things of God and remember that anyone can feel the spirit but to have a gift of discernment is something that we receive from God when our heart is true and we have Trust in Him and not what could possibly be Him. God is not some tingly feeling we get when we pray He is GOD and learning His Truth is not easy. That’s why it says that the way of the enemy is wide and the way to God is narrow. A one on one relationship is what it takes to truly be more like God we just need to ask that those around us are here to help and not hinder our walk. Do not be jealous of another s walk if you don’t understand, as we are all rewarded according to His judgement. If we become a stumbling block then we will never get anywhere but we will make things hard for others. Offer to help so that you can learn in the process of another s journey.
Then Jesus came and forgave our Sins once and for all when he died, so then why do the churches tell us we need to act a certain way and do certain things to be good Christians? But why do we allow ourselves to be accountable to others as if they are better or maybe know more? Well Jesus came to free us from Sin and forgive us, and He said that His Grace is sufficient. Then why don’t we instead of looking at each other let us lift each other up and help everyone around us to be the best and strongest version that we can be. Lets not think of another person as good or bad but as merely a different part of the same thing. This way we can work together and be free of the chains that hold us no matter what form they take. And let us not put chains on anyone else because who are we but brothers and sisters in Christ and no one is supposed to be placed on the cross for their Sins. If someone is doing something you think is wrong then maybe you should think about what you do that they might think is wrong. We all do things that seem strange to others and others may appear strange to us. Those are times that we can ask God to help us understand the things we don’t and to reveal His Truth in all situations and opportunities. If someone is open about things we should always try to understand everything without casting judgement because if we don’t understand then God will show us how to see things differently.
To say that a thing is wrong can be a chain for someone who feels differently about the same thing. So why do we run around putting everyone around us in them? We must always remember that we can’t look at what others are doing and and have an opinion but we should ask if we can help those around us. For if we’re not helping then we could be hurting and that is what we should be looking at, ourselves to be what God wants us to be for each other.
Paul says it best about who we are if we just look at ourselves instead of others. Romans 7;18 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.
We are told to Trust God for everything ,but what does that really mean? When my wife and I are doing God’s work and all seems fine we are often attacked by the enemy in different forms. During these time we react as best we can and Trust in God that he will help us in our time of need. For me sometimes I feel that he is not as close as usual and that is ok because i know that he will never leave me with something I can not handle. I know that God will lead the enemy away by using my brothers and sisters as a distraction and drawing his attention to someplace else so that We can continue God’s work. It is during these times that I sometimes wonder and in the past would feel abandoned but I know better than to feel that God will ever go away. Isaiah 40:28-31 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
God says that he will never leave us with more than we can handle so if times seem hard or like we are alone we must remember that whatever the situation is that we do have the strength to carry on we just have to remember to keep are faith and believe in ourselves as God believes in us and that we are strong enough for everything we are going through. When we feel alone while we follow God it is a time to rest and reflect on what we are doing that is causing the enemy to attack because if we are being attacked than we are doing things right. Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
When we are no threat to the enemy then he does not bother with us. The more personal the attack from the enemy the stronger we become. So during those times when it seems things are falling apart or are going in the wrong direction then that is when God wants us to have a Rest in him and regain more strength and wisdom for our next mission. I think about it like this, ” How can I feel God in me when I am Resting in Him”. Psalm 118:8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.
When we mourn our lost loved ones it is our spirit that has realized we have been left behind and that another has returned to the Father. When they pass we miss and grieve them, it’s normal, but it still hurts. We have to remember that when someone passes they DO NOT die, our souls are from God and therefore Eternal. So, if we think about it, our loved ones have gone to be with our Creator in the heavenly realms. We should be celebrating that they are with God and remember them, the good times and the bad times we had with them, think about how one day it will be our turn.
If you do not believe or have not been told, “Jesus came to earth to make a way for us to be forgiven and to be able to come to the Fathers presence”, all you need is to believe in him and what He did (died for us), put our Faith in him (Trust in Him), and repent of our Sins (Turn to Him). When we do this we begin our relationship with Him anew with a clean slate. The Bible is filled with things that can help us to understand God but we have to take that first step of surrender, let go of the material things and worries (Distractions) and don’t let the world take our focus from God.
When man first sinned it was by being disobedient to God, and turning away from Him, once that happened it created an opportunity for the enemy to capture peoples attention and further distract us from God. Things have gotten so far from what God originally created that a lot don,t realize that we don’t know anything no matter what our IQ is or how many degrees we have. We live in a World full of lost souls being lied to by everything around us. The world is everything that is material including our bodies. God is so great that He is all and in all but not visible to our physical eyes. That is where our Faith comes in as we believe in things that we can not see, feel, or hear. Talk to God(Pray) daily and always, but most importantly, listen for His voice and wait for His presence. Ask God for the Spirit of discernment of Truth to find It and never limit yourself or where you search. If you let GOD lead you, He will show you so much that you will want to shout it to everything, but we have to be bold and step out in Faith and do what He asks of us so we can see the Truth of his Love for us.
Although we have the best intentions by offering advice and correction to others is that truly what God wants? The Bible tells us exactly what we are to do on this matter. Romans 14:1-23 As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. …
Who is anyone to tell another what is the proper way when we are so messed up ourselves. Jesus said to Love each other as the Father Loves us. We are his children and he loves us no matter what. When we get caught up worrying about what others do we do not see our own issues. Something that is good for one may be a hindrance to another. If going to church can help a person then maybe just reading the Bible can help a different person for we do not know what is in the heart of another. Maybe some people find God by doing a thing that others might be harmed by. How can we know what is the proper way as we are all different from each other as is each ones way to God. It is only for us to follow Christ in our own way and be an example by reaching out to those around us to support them on their narrow path to God. We should never help someone down the path that God has shown to us for when they start down our path then our path becomes wider. Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.
My path has led me to want to shout everything I learn from God and to share it on this site and with everyone that will hear. I still have my issues but God is guiding me on my way and I do not wish to be the cause for anyone to get lost but i want to help all that I can to be their for support to anyone that might need it. That is why we started this organization, to be a help to those in need by being their for them and reminding them that they are not alone, that they are not outcast, that someone does care about them, and that GOD is the one that will take them to their destination.
We tend to look at the things around us based on what we were taught. These ways are usually based on our understanding and what the majority says is morally correct. The world looks to leaders and public figures for guidance but this has become our downfall. As our opinions do matter to us and those around us we need to ask, does my opinion really matter to GOD? Well that would depend on where we draw our opinion from. If it is drawn from the views of the world or popular opinion then we are doing ourselves a grave dis-service.
The bible says that God is not a respecter of persons, which is to say that God doesn’t care what we think about if it does or does not not align with His plan or His purpose because in God,s eyes we are all the same. Because our thoughts can not even begin to understand why God does what He does, it is only for us to Trust in Him and have Faith that no matter the situation He is always in control. We must realize that our part in His plan is to Love one another and to further His purpose by being there for each other with out judgement of what we see or what we think is not of Him.
I met a guy a couple weeks ago who stopped going to church and has been doing things that most will say is wrong for him or not good for him to be doing. Then yesterday i spoke to someone from his church that told me that it wasn’t right and that the guy was backslidden, messing up, etc.. But i do not see the situation as the guy is doing things he shouldn’t be doing because when I spoke to him he said he was tired of the rules and restrictions that his church placed on him and that it made him feel like he was always doing wrong. It was his leaders who made him feel unworthy and restricted him from God. This is how the enemy divides us and confuses our purpose by making us think we can know what is good and just in God’s sight, but as children how can we really understand God’s ways. Only with Trust and Faith in everything God does and how he can use all things for His purpose. Whatever the this guy is doing i know he is still praying and seeking God so I Trust that God is doing something for him and is using the situation for his purpose so I as the guys brother in Christ will check up on him and remind him to keep his Faith so that God can complete the work that was started.
When Jesus was here he did not go to the temples to teach the Pharisees and Sadducee s (Priests). He new that they seen the world through their own eyes and condemned people for the things they did, thus keeping them from the presence of God. They also thought that their view were correct and that caused them to keep people at a distance from God by saying that only they were pure and good to be able to be in God’s presence. 1 John 1:8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
Jesus came to let us know that God is available to everyone and that He was to make it possible for us to be sinless in God’s sight. By dying for us he opened a door that no one can close and taught that we are worthy of our creators love and favor. So We should never feel that anything we do will keep us from God because Jesus made they way for us. Anyone who says anything to make us think or feel that we can not have a relationship with God, is wrong and they do not understand what Jesus actually did. So be bold and go to God for everything no matter your situation or circumstance and remember that God only wants a one on one relationship with each of us and He wants to Love us because we are his children.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
As we are here for God’s purpose alone why do we spend so much time worrying about things of the world? We seek Him to know the truth which is revealed to us through the spirit so that we may shout it to those who can not receive it. The enemy has so many blinded and deaf to God by making it seem impossible to reach the lost. They are chained and burdened by life and what they are lead to believe is necessary. The lies that we need to be and have the things we seek after are mere distractions meant to keep us at a distance from God.
We are to be bold in spirit to spread the truth we receive from God so that we may bring those in need out of the darkness they have been trapped in. This can not be done by looking at things the way we understand but the ways of God which is love and his guidance given by the Holy Spirit alone. No matter what we think or how we feel we can not begin to understand the things he does or why he does them. To have faith is to move forward in His purpose knowing he will prevail in our lives and those around us.
Do not contain yourself by limiting where you seek for God as there are far more places to search that the published Bible which we all know and love to be his divine authority given to us for guidance. Things have been hidden by the enemy which is evident by the many religions, sects, and spiritual teaching in the world . These things that divide are of the enemy and keep us separated. As no thing of God is to be separated from another thing of God how is it that the enemy has done this? By distractions of what we believe to be right and wrong, good and bad, We cannot know what that is to GOD so we must love each other in all things and not decide for ourselves what is God’s way but to trust that he has made many ways to His presence for all in many ways that we can not understand.
When we are gathered together for God then let us share what we have been told to share and do not be selfish as to speak of ourselves but only that which is to Glorify God. The Bible says that all scripture is good, but what is all scripture?
The Master, now speaking as the glorified Christ, bids them rejoice, for that now He will tell them all things “from the beginning of the truth to the end thereof, “face to face, without parable, for that authority has now been given Him by the First Mystery, in the lowest spaces of the supernal Light-Realm.
The bible is not a book that tells us what to do and not do. It is a guide that tells us how we should live. Today a lot of people look at Christians and think that we are all about what is right and wrong and how living a certain way is not of God, etc. Well I want to let you know that the Bible is only about us having a one on one relationship with God and treating the people around us with love. The old testament has a lot of things that we should and should not do but we no longer need to set our attention on those things as long as we focus on the teachings of Jesus.
When Jesus was here his whole ministry was about us being able to have that relationship with Him and that if we follow and believe in him then we are no longer men and women, but we are children of God. When we fully realize what that means we can move in the spirit of God and begin to heal ourselves and those around us.
The world and the enemy puts distractions in place to keep us so busy that we forget to focus on God and we miss out on all that God has for us. All those bills, car repairs, angry people that we come in contact with are what keeps us at a distance from God by making us think more on our problems and responsibilities then on what God has for us and what he will do for us. The world makes us believe in things that are not of God by bombarding us with ads that cause us to think about the world in a black and white sense. This causes us to miss out on the blessings that are before us.
When we see someone that is homeless, looks like a gang member. or is on drugs we should not steer away. Instead we should approach them in Love as Jesus would have done, because we can not know what that person is going through or what lead them to the place they are in. They are the ones that Jesus tells us that we should be reaching out to and sharing the Good News of what he did for us and how he is available to them. The enemy would have them believe that what ever put them in that situation is bad or wrong and that can keep them from God and what he is capable of. Never tell someone what they are doing is wrong or not Godly but instead show them what Jesus says about how we are to treat each other in Love and without judgement.
One thing that God has shown me this year is that no matter how smart we think we are, how good we think we are, or how right we think we are, that we as humans do not know Gods way and that we can not begin to imagine what is right or wrong and that we should not think on these things that cause us to judge others. As the Bible says in Mathew 7;3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Just because man makes laws and says a thing, does not make it of God, so please when you have thoughts of what another is doing then please take a look at yourself and think, what do i do unknowingly that God does not agree with. None on earth can know what is good for another or even themselves but we can be there for each other as a help to get through it all. 1 Corinthians 1;25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
What is faith? Hebrews 11;1 11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. When we hope it is for things yet to come or for things that are not material like strength, happiness, etc. Our faith is what brings about the things that we hope for and therefore proves that faith exists in our lives. With faith in God anything is possible as long as we trust in Him. Our trust is what activates the power of God in our lives and brings our faith to the real world. When Israel was in the desert for 40 years after the Exodus out of Egypt, God was not testing their faith, He was proving their Faith in Him. At one point they were brought to the Jordan and led to cross it. In the front of the caravan was the Ark of the Covenant carried by four priests who had to be the first to step out into the river knowing that the depth would cover them over their heads but they Trusted God and when they took that first step into the water the river was parted to allow the entire caravan to cross. The priests did not hesitate and God carried them with His Love and Power. Why then do we hesitate today to step out in Faith? If we look at our past trials and how hard they were it distracts us from the rewards God has given us after the trials were over. We forget to focus on Gods results because we forget to Trust in Him. If we always wake up and focus on what we have been blessed with and have Faith in the blessings to come we can learn to always trust Him specially when the times are hard.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. So when you get that feeling that nothing is going your way or there’s nothing you can do when you faith is tested, remember to Trust in God and keep the Faith. To us it may seem dismal or unbearable but it is God performing a work in us and through us so that we may be a light here on Earth. Just because we do not understand the things that happen to us does not mean that God is not with us or doing something for us or someone close to us. He is always with us and more so in our times of need. Hebrews 13:5-9 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
If you are like most people today tired of being told what to do, where you can go, and who you can see you’re not alone, even if you live alone. The Bible tells us that God is everywhere and in everything so why would we ever feel alone at any time? Jeremiah 23:23-24 “Am I a God at hand, declares the Lord, and not a God far away? Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord. So if we do feel alone it is not because we are but because we choose to turn away from God or we have let something distract us from the Truth that we are never alone.
We can often look at our situations and think how can God let this happen to me, why am I going through this, or where is God during the rough times. If you have ever felt this way and got through it then you probably learned something, experienced something, or changed something in yourself or even in someone else. If you think back on past trials in your life and ask God for understanding you will begin to see how the hard times helped you to become who you are today. He will show you how He was there for and with you. Don’t let anything distract you from the Truth of Gods Love. Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Pandemic has brought a lot of things to light and people are beginning to wake up from the sleep that the Devil has put us in. All you have to do is read about how through all the turmoil throughout the year of people losing Loved ones, Jobs, and even Homes there are other that continue to help. Charities that receive less are still working other are able to do more. People are starting to help each other more because the need is more. Why did it take a Pandemic to get this started? Because a lot of us were asleep to what was going on around us. We were too worried about ourselves and those closest to us and we stopped looking out at the world around us. By doing this we couldn’t see that there has always been a great need and that what the Virus has brought to light was always here in the dark. So let us move forward in the light of God by Loving each other as we would Love God. Ephesians 5:8 For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
1John;7-13 7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. This is what God says about how we are to serve him always, not when it’s convenient for us.
The ten commandments show us what sin is and to give us an understanding, but in reality they draw our attention to sin in others. The more we see other Sin we begin to judge their actions and that is the trap it has become. We that follow God need to remember that when Jesus was here he gave us new commandments and abolished the old ones. This is not to say that we should not still look to the old to help us with the new but we can not let them be a hindrance to us any longer. This is clearly shown in Romans-7;4-6 4 In the same way, my brothers, you were made dead to the law through the body of Christ, so that you might be joined to another, even to him who came again from the dead, so that we might give fruit to God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the evil passions which came into being through the law were working in our bodies to give the fruit of death. 6 But now we are free from the law, having been made dead to that which had power over us; so that we are servants in the new way of the spirit, not in the old way of the letter.
What then do we do and how can we stop sin? Jesus said to Love one another and to love God above all else. As we go about our day we do not go without sin no matter what we do or think, this is our nature. But if we do as Jesus said then we will be the better for it. I have said to my wife that after 16 years that I should have treated her better and by that i mean that instead of treating her like my wife and soulmate whom I love with all my heart that I should have been treating her like she was God. Though harder done then said if I do this for everyone then how am I not giving God my best and first? Because if God says he is in us all and we in him then why do we sometimes treat one another as we shouldn’t? By following God’s new commandments and leaving the old in the past it is easier to do what God wants. How can you Sin if you walk in Love always? This is what Jesus did and he was God’s perfect son on earth void of Sin and righteous. Peter 4;8-11 8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
