                                          WHAT IF JESUS IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS! 

    IF JESUS WAS WHO HE SAID HE IS, THEN HIS BIRTH TAKES A MUCH DEEPER AND SERIOUSLY MORE PROFOUND SIGNIFICANCE 

    1) THIS WOULD MEAN THAT JESUS SO THAT WE COULD HAVE/OPTAIN THE GREATEST OF ALL OR ANY KNOWN OR UNKNOWN TILL REVEALED GIFT KNOWN TO MANKIND. THIS GIFT WE KNOW AS ETERNAL LIFE. HOW WONDERFUL,

    BUT LETS EXAMINE HIS BIRTH CLOSER.

    JESUS WOULD BE THE ONLY BABY TO BE BORN TO DIE. BUT NOT FOR HIS ACTIONS BUT OURS AND AT THE TIME OF HIS BIRTH THE OLD TESTAMENT HAD ALREADY NUMBERED HIS DAYS. [CONTEMPLATE THIS WHEN JESUS WHO WAS PART OF WRITING THE BIBLE WOULD AS A CHILD OF MAN WOULD LEAVE HIS DIETY BEHIND]

    . THEREFORE AS HE READ THE WORD HE DISCOVERED WHO HE WAS HOW  HE WOULD DIE WHERE IT WOULD HAPPEN WHY IT DID AND EVEN MORE AMAZING KNEW THE EXACT DAY OF HIS DEATH. HE KNEW THIS AT 12 WHEN TEACHING AT THE SYNAGOGUE. HE ALSO CHOOSE TO BE A CARPENTER HENCE REMINDING HIMSELF EVERY TIME HE NAILED TWO PIECES OF WOOD TOGETHER. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HIS THOUGHTS. YET HE STILL WORKED AS A CARPENTER AND DIED BY THE NAILING ON THE CROSS.   

    TOMORROW I WILL BRING TO YOU NUMBER 2 THING TO ANALYZE. 

    THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BYE. BRING SOMEONE WITH YOU NEXT TIME. COMMENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME. UNTIL TOMORROW. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                               WHAT IF JESUS IS WHO HE SAID HE IS 

     

    2nd THUNG BY HIS DYING PAYING OUR SIN DEBT IN HELL RETURNED. HIS RETURNING MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR ALL MANKIND OR ONE OF MANKIND TO OBTAIN THE GREATEST AND MOST PRECIOUS GIFT OF RESIDENCY IN HEAVEN FOR EVER (ETERNITY). A LIFE FOR A LIFE. CREATOR FOR CREATION. PERFECTION FOR SINNERS. 

    3) FOCUS ON THE GOD OF ETERNITY WHO COMES AND DIES FOR US SO WE CAN LIVE WITH HIM FOR ETERNITY FORWARD. THIS IS THE MOST EXTREME WAY ONE CAN EXPERIENCE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. THINK OF IT MEDITATE UPON THIS FACT. GOD THE SON OF GOD LEFT HIS COMFORT ZONE TO LIVE AMONG SINNERS. 

    4) IMAGINE BEING YOU AND KNOWING FROM A VERY YOUNG AGE YOU WERE THE ANSWER TO REDEEM HIS CREATION. KNOWING 90% OF HUMANITY WILL NEVER RECEIVE YOU AS THEIR REDEEMER WHAT WOULD YOU DO? WOULD YOU PAY THE ULTIMATE PRICE FOR 10% OF HUMANITY WILL BUY IN. HOWEVER ONLY 10% OF THEM EVER ARE PRODUCTIVE IN THE KINGDOM. MEANING 1% OF MANKIND WILL ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING. IDK IF I COULD DO ALL HE DID. NOW THINK OF GOD/SON OF GOD COMING LEARNING LIVING DYING RESURRECTION BUT NEVER WAVERED NEVER GOT AN EGO. ACTUALLY HE GREW MORE HUMBLE. 

    5). NOW IMAGINE AT PASSOVER WHEN THE CUSTOM IS FOR THE OLDEST SON TO OPEN THE DOOR TO SEE IF MESSIAH HAD COME TO THERIR HOME. HE WOULD ALWAYS RETURN BACK WITH THE SAME ANSWER NO. THIS IS WHY THAT CAN NOT DRINK OF THE LAST (SADER CUP). NOW IMAGINE JESUS GOING TO THE DOOR KNOWING THE ANSWER WAS INSIDE(HIM) NOT OUTSIDE. PLUS EVERYONE IN THE ROOM KNEW JESUS WAS THE ANSWER. YET JESUS WOULD NEVER CLAIM TO BE HE WAS THE CHRIST. REASON BEING. HE WAS THE ANSWER BUT THE TIMING WAS NOT RIGHT. 

    6) THINK OF WHAT JESUS YOUNG LIFE WAS ABOUT. FROM 7-12 WHILE MOST KIDS WOULD BE OUT PLAYING, PERHAPS PLANNING OUT THEIR FUTURE. MAYBE SITTING IN THE YARD LOOKING UP AT THE CLOUDS DREAMING OF WHAT LIFE HAS TO OFFER. JESUS WAS STUDYING THE SCRIPTURES. IN THEM LIKE US HE FOUND HIMSELF. (REMEMBER HE HAS GIVEN UP HIS ABILITY TO KNOW ALL THINGS) SO HE DISCOVERS WHO HE WAS WHAT HE WOULD DO WHEN HE WOULD DIE. WORSE HE KNEW HOW. HE WOULD HAVE BEEN FAMILIAR WITH THIS TYPE OF DEATH BEING UNDER ROMAN EMPIRE AND THIS WAS THEIR TYPE OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. 

    TOMORROW I WILL FINISH THIS PART OF THE POST. THIS IS NOT ANYTHING KNEW TO US BUT WE NEVER MEDITATED OR THOUGHT ON IT FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME. GODS SPEED. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                WHAT I SEE THE CHRISTMAS TREE    

     

    THIS IS MY PERSPECTIVE. I AM SURE MOST MAY NOT HAVE THOUGHT OF THIS SUBJEST FROM THIS POINT OF VIEW. ITS ONLY FOR YOUR INTAKE. IT IS NOT SOMETHING I AM ASKING YOU TO TAKE IN THE SAME WAY. IT IS MY WAY OF THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX. SO LETS TAKE A LOOK AT OUR TREE AS WE DECORATE IT. I WANT TO TELL YOU THE SYMBOLISM BEHIND EACH DECORATION 

    1) THE STAR ON THE TOP OF OUR TREE. [REPRESENTS THE STAR OF  DAVID THAT LEAD THE WISE MEN TO BETHLEHEM]

    2) THE ANGRL ON THE TOP OF THE TREE. [REPRESENTS THE MILLIONS OF MILLIONS OF ANGELS THAT SANG TO THE SHEPARDS. N YES THERE WERE MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS]. AND YET JUST A MILE OR TWO AWAY NO ONE HEARD THEM SINGING IN TOWN. NOT EVEN MARY HEARD IT. THAT DEFIES THE LAWS OF PHYSICS. 

    3) THE PRESENTS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TREE. [REPRESENTS THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT ONE COULD RECEIVE JESUS THE CHRIST THE SAVIOR] ALSO THE GIFTS WE RECEIVE FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT  

    4) THE BLINKING LIGHTS [REPRESENTS THE STARS IN THE HEAVENS. THAT ARE NUMBERED AND NAMED BY GOD] 

    5) THE SOLID LIGHTS [REPRESENTS THE CHRISTIAN THAT IS LETTING HIS LIGHT SHINE AS THE CANDLE STICK ONE BRINS INSIDE. ITS THERE TO DRAW ATTENTION TO ITSELF BUT TO DRAW OTHERS IN SO WE CAN PRESENT THEM WITH THEIR OWN GIFT UNDER THE TREE]

    6) THE RED GARLAND [REPRESENTS THE BLOOD SHED FOR ME SO I CAN HAVE FORGIVENESS FROM MY SINS] 

    TOMORROW I WILL FINISH UP THE TEACHING OF THE CHRISTMAS TREE. I KNOW THIS WILL OPEN YOUR MIND TO SEEING YOUR TREE IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WAY/ASPECT. 

    GODS SPEED. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

      THIS TOPIC WILL ADRESS WHY WHEN JESUS SHOWED UP THERE WAS NO PLACE FOR JESUS ANYWHERE IN  ANCIENT TIMES ALL THE WAY TO MODERN TIMES. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THAT THERES NO ROOM NOT JUST THE INN BUT IN US. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD 

                                                    WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS

     

                                                WHY THERE IS NO ROOM FOR JESUS 

    SINCE JESUS LEFT HEAVEN HIS HOME AND BECAME SON OF MAN AND LEFT SON OF GOD BEHIND (YET STILL GOD) AND WAS BORN NATURALLY (CREATOR BECOMES CREATION) HOWEVER THE BIRTH WAS NATURAL BUT THE CONCEPTION WAS VERY DIFFERENT. THE BIRTH WAS UNNATURAL IN THIS WAY. WHEN JESUS WAS BORN MARY REMAINED A VIRGIN AFTER BIRTH. THATS PART OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION AND NOT JUST THAT IT DID NOT HAPPEN NORMALLY. MANKIND FROM THE MOMENT OF BIRTH HAS TRIED AND VERY EAZILY DISMISS HIM AND THEY TO CAN NOT FIND ANY PLACE FOR JESUS. EVEN TODAY WE ARE NOT WELCOMING HIM INTO OUR SCHOOLS HOMES AND SADLY NOT IN OUR PLACES WE WORSHIP. WE DID NOT LEARN FROM THE PAST SO WE ARE DOOMED TO KEEP REPEATING THE PAST. CONCUSSION THERES IS NO ROOM FOR JESUS. 

    IN NEXT DAY OR SO I WILL CONTINUE THIS TEACHING ALSO. AGAIN THIS MAY NOT FIT YOUR THOUGHT PROCESS HOWEVER I THINKING HOPING TO SHOW YOU HOW SAD IT IS THAT 2000 YEARS LATER WE ARE CONTINUING THE SAME BAD NEGLECT BEHAVIOR. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                          WHAT IF JESUS IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS

    7)  DESPITE ALL THESE VERY REAL DISTRACTIONS AND DETERRENTS ( CERTAINLY FOR US/ MANKIND) JESUS NEVER LOST FOCUS. HE NEVER WAVERED AS PAUL WOULD SAY JESUS RAN THE GOOD RACE. HE FINISHED THE RACE. HE KNEW EVERYTHING BOUT WHY HE WAS BORN TO DIE. HE DRANK THE CUP OF SORROW PAIN BETRAYAL DEATH. HE WAS GIVEN A WAY TO TAKE A SHORT CUT YET STAYED ON TRACK.

    9)IN DOING SO BROUGHT GLORY TO THE FATHER. HE ONLY WANTED TO PLEASE THE FATHER. JESUS SET THE TABLE FOR US. 

    CONCLUSION. IN A FEW DAYS WE WILL CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS. LETS REMEMBER TO REFLECT UPON WHAT WE READ. SO DON’T MAKE IT ABOUT OPENING GIFTS UNDER THE TREE. BUT RATHER OPEN YOUR HEART TO THE ONE WHO HUNG ON THE TREE. THE ONE WHO WALKED ON WATHER THE ONE WHO TURNED WATER TO WINE 

    YES LET US CELEBRATE JESUS BIRTHDAY YET MEDITATE AT ALL HE DID (THAT NONE OF US WOULD HAVE FULLY DONE) AND GIVE PRAISE HONOR N GLORY TO OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. BETTER YET LET CHRISTMAS BE THE FIRST DAY OF THE NEXT 364 TO PRAISE HIM DAILY N OFTEN. AS YOU OPEN UP EACH GIFT REMEMBER THE GIFT THAT GAVE US ETERNAL LIFE. THAT GIFT IS A PERSON JESUS THE SON OF GOD YET GOD HIMSELF. 

    HIS PURPOSE DROVE HIM! HIS LOVE INSPIRED HIM TO CONTINUE ON HIS JOURNEY TO GIVE US THE GREATEST GIFT (SALVATION) HIS WILL GAVE US LIFE ETERNAL AND A PURPOSE! HIS DESIRE KEEPS US HIS HE SHOWED US WHAT WE CAN/SHOULD BE YET HE WILL BE ALL BOIT THAT TO IF ONLY WE EMBRACE THE REASON FOR THE SEASON. MAKE JESUS LORD OF YOUR LIFE OPEN YOUR HEART TO HIS GUIDANCE MERCY GRACE AND ESPECIALLY HIS LOVE FOR EACH OF US AS HIS CHILD. BROUGHT WITH A PRICE BUT FREELY GIVEN. MAY BOW YOUR HEAD WITH THE FAMILY AND INVITE JESUS IN TO YOU CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION. 

    IF JESUS IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS HE WAS EITHER A LIER LUNATIC OR LORD. OBVIOUSLY LORD OF LORD KING OF KINGS. THEN WE BETTER PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE WORDS WRITTEN IN RED!!!!   CHOOSE WISELY. GODS SPEED. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                    EVERYTHING CHRISTMAS

     

                                  THE STORY BEHIND THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 

    THERE ARE MANY CAMPS OF THOUGHT PERTAINING TO THIS SONG. NO ONE KNOWS FOR SURE THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN. HOWEVER MOST THINK IT WAS FRECH THE DATES RANGE FROM 1558-1829. HISTORIANS FEEL IT WAS LIKELY IN THE 1500’s  THE MOST ADHERED TO STORY OF THIS SONG WAS DURNING THE PERSECUTION OF THE PROTESTANT MOVEMENT, OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION THIS SONG WAS MADE SPECIFICALLY TO SOUND SECULAR. HOWEVER THEY GOT THE IDEA FROM THE PARABLES AND HIDE THEIR CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION WITHIN. IT WASN'T TRADITIONALLY A CHRISTMAS HYMN OR CAROL. TODAY WE USE IT SOLELY AS A CHRISTMAS TRADITION SONG. 

    HERES THE WORDS AND THE HIDDEN MEANING. 

    1)MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE. [JESUS IS OUR ONE TRUE LOVE]

    2) TWO TURTLE DOVES. [THE TWO TESTAMENTS OF THE BIBLE] 

    3) FRENCH HENS  [FAITH HOPE LOVE] ALL GIVEN BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

    4) CALLING BIRDS [THE FOUR GOSPELS]

    5) GOLDEN RINGS [FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE] THE LAW THE PENTATEUCH 

    6) GEESE A LAYING [THE SIX DAYS OF CREATION]

    7) SWANS A SWIMMING [SEVEN FOLD GIFTS FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT /TEACHING PROPHECY     SERVING EXHORTATION EDIFICATION PASTOR EVANGELISM]

    8) MAIDS A MILKING [THE EIGHT BEATITUDES] 

    9) NINE LADIES DANCING [FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT/CHARITY JOY PEACE PATIENCE GOODNESS MILDNESS FIDELITY MODESTY CONFIDENCE]

    10) LORD A LEAPING [THE TEN COMMANDMENTS] 

    11) PIPERS PIPING [ELEVEN FAITHFUL APOSTLES]

    12) DRUMMERS DRUMMING [THE TWELVE POINTS OF THE APOSTLES CREED] 

    NOW YOU HAVE THE STORY BORN OUT OF NECESSITY OF THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS HOPEFULLY IT WILL HELP YOU TO APPRECIATE THE SONG. ALSO HOW WISE THEY WERE TO COMPOSE THE SONG WHILE PASSING DOWN THE ORAL TRADITION OF THE SONG. MOST OF ALL HOW FREE WE ARE IN AMERICA TO WORSHIP APPOSED TO THE EARLY MOVEMENT FROM MARTIAN LUTHER AND THE TERRIBLE PERSECUTION AS WELL AS THE MANY MARTYRS. 

    GODS SPEED I HOPE THIS GAVE YOU INSIGHT AND INSPIRATION AS WE APPROACH THE CHRISTMAS SEASON. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                         THE CHRISTMAS TREE 

     

    7)THE BLUE GARLND [WATER BAPTISM] 

    8.) THE SILVER GARLAND [THE CRYSTAL SEA WE WILL GATHER AROUND] 

    9) ROUND BALL ORNAMENTS [ FIRST THE PLANTS IN OUR SOLOR SYSTEM SECOND THE GALAXIES THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE] 

    10) THE TREE ITSELF [DAVID PROPHESIED THE LORD WOULD DIE UON THE TREE APPROXIMATELY 1000 YEARS BEFORE IT CAME TO PASS 750 YEARS BEFORE THAT FORM OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENT EXISTED AND ON THE CROSS HE DIED. 

    THAT IS MY OBSERVATION OF THE WHOLE CHRISTMAS TREE. I HOPE IT GIVES YOU A DIFFERENT WAY TO ENJOY THE TREE. MAYBE THINK OF EACH OF THE THINGS WE SPOKE OF AS YOU PUT THEM ON THE TREE TOGETHER AS FAMILY. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                        EVERYTHING CHRISTMAS 

     

    THE BIBLE DOES NOT SAY ONLY THREE WISE MEN CAME TO JESUS. HOWEVER THERE ARE MANY WHO THINK THERE WERE THREE. HERES THE NAMES OF THE TRADITIONAL BELIEVER. GASPAR BALTHAZAR MELCHIAR. HOWEVER THEY DID NOT SHOW UP AT HIS BIRTH AS WEVE BEEN TOLD IN THE CHRISTMAS TRADITIONAL ACCOUNT OF THE BIRTH OF CHRIST. THEY ACTUALLY CAME CLOSE TO 3 YEARS AFTER. THAT WAS A FULFILLMENT OF A PROPHECY THAT THE WOMAN WOULD CRY THROUGH THE WHOLE NATION OF ISREAL. THEY CAME AND STOPPED AT HERODS CASTLE FIRST INQUIRING ABOUT THE NEW KING. HEROD SENT HIS SOLDIERS OUT TO KILL ALL BABY BOYS FROM AGE 3 AND UNDER. ITS LIKELY THEY KILLED BOYS UP TO 5 YEARS OF AGE. JESUS WAS ALREADY ON HIS WAY IF NOT ALREADY IN EGYPT. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                      EVERYTHING CHRISTMAS 

                                                      WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS 

     

    REASONS THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR JESUS. IM GOING TO GO THROUGH JUST HOW MANY DON’T/DIDN’T HAVE ANY PLACE ANY ROOM HENCE NO NEED. I WILL ADDRESS 1) NATION IF ISREAL 2) TGE APOSTLES 3)RELIGIOUS SET 4) ROME 5) TODAYS CHRUCH 6) CHRISTIANS IN GENERAL AT A PERSONAL LEVEL 

    WE ALL KNOW THE STOEY OF JESUS BIRTH. THERE WAS NO WHERE TO GIVE BIRTH TO JESUS. NOW IMAGINE YOUR JESUS. FOR ETERNITY YOU'VE BEEN SITTING ON YOUR THRONE AS GOD/SON OF GOD. KING OF KINGS LORD OF ALL. HE CAME THROUGH THE LINE OF DAVID. MAKING  JESUS ROYALTY THE LEGITIMATE KING OF ISREAL. HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN BORN IN THE CASTLE BUILT FOR THE KING. INSTEAD HE WAS BORN IN A MANGER. THAT ALL SOUNDS LIKE IT WASN’T ACTUALLY THAT BAD. IF YOU THINK THAT WAY. IF YOU BELIEVE THE FIGURINES WE ALL HAVE SEEN. IT LOOKS CALM CLEAN ACTUALLY RESTFUL. THE MANGER WAS NOT A STERILE NUCH LESS CLEAN. ALL KINDS OF ANIMALS  EAT FROM THIS THING. MY FIRST REAL JOB WAS WORKING ON A FARM. ACTUALLY ID RAISED MY OWN PETS. I HAD SHEEP N GOATS TWO COWS FOUR PIGS A HORSE COUNTLESS CHICKENS FEW DUCKS. MY FIRST JOB WAS OM A MILKING FARM. MY POINT IS BARNS ARE EXTREMELY NASTY. IF YOU WANT JUST A GLIMPSE OF HOW IT WAS FOR JESUS GO TO A FARM NEAR YOU MAKE SURE YOU WEAR YOU NORMAL CLOTHS DO NOT DRESS FOR IT AS JESUS AND HIS FAMILY DID NOT EXPECT TO SLEEP THERE AND CERTAINLY DIDN’T DRESS FOR IT. IT WILL TAKE YOU LESS THEN FIVE MINUTES TO UNDERSTAND JUST HOW NASTY IT IS. LETS NOT FORGET MARY GAVE BIRTH IN THIS SAME DIRTY BARN. SHE ALSO DID NOT HAVE ANYONE TO HELP HER WITH THE BIRTH. ALL AROUND IT WAS A DISMAL START FOR THE SON OF GOD. WE WILL FIND IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER FOR HIM.

    WHEN I RETURN WE WILL ADDRESS THE NATION OF ISREAL AND THE RELIGIOUS SETS OF THE TIME. UNTIL NEXT TIME. THANK YOU ALL FOR THE INSPIRATION YOU ALL GIVE ME WHEN YOU COME TO READ ANY OF MY POSTS. I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH HOWS MUCH THIS MOVES ME. THANK YOU ALL AGAIN. GODS SPEED  TAKE CARE BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                      EVERYTHING CHRISTMAS 

     

                                                      WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS 

     

    TODAY WE WILL BRIEFLY TALK ABOUT WHY THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR JESUS IN THE NATION OF ISREAL AND THE RELIGIOUS SETS OF JESUS TIME. FIRST THE ONES WHO HAD THE ACCESS TO THE SCRIPTURES SHOULD HAVE PREPARED THE PEOPLE FOR THE COMING. THEY HAD NOT HEARD FROM GOD FOR 400 YEARS. NO PROPHETS. I KNOW THE RELIGIOUS SETS KNEW OF CHRIST, REMEMBER WHEN THE WISE MEN CAME TO KING HAROD HE ASKED HIS RELIGIOUS PARTNER. THEY KNEW WHERE THE LORD WAS TO BE BORN. THE OTHER THING THE PEOPLE OF ISREAL HAD THAT MADE THEM SPECIAL “THE LAW” THIS KEPT THEM SEPARATE FROM THE GENTILE. WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR WAS A KING,NOT A SAVIOR. THEY WERE LOOKNG FOR THEIR KING DAVID. ONE WHO COULD DELIVER THEM FROM THRPE ROMAN EMPIRE. SO BETWEEN THEIR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE AND THEIR FOCUS ON THE WRONG JESUS FOR THEIR TIME 

    THE RELIGIOUS SET THEY LOVED THEIR POSITION IN ISRAELI NATION. THEY WERE LOOKED AT AS SPECIAL BUT ALSO DESPISED. EITHER WAY THEY GOT ALL THE ATTENTION FROM THE PEOPLE. TECHNICALLY THEY HAD ALL THE POWER OVER THE PEOPLE AS THEY WERE THE PRIMARY SORCE TO GOD UNDER THE LAW. THAT IS THE OTHER THING THE HAD THE LAW WHICH THEY HAD CHAGED DRAMATICALLY WHICH THEY USED TO KEEP THE PEOLE OPPRESSED. THIS POSITION GAVE THEM POWER NOT JUST RECOGNITION, THEY WERE NOT INTERESTED IN SHARING NOR GIVING AWAY THAT POSITION THEY ENJOYED. THEY ONLY WANTED PEOPLE/MEN WHO WOULD NOT MAKE ANY WAVES (GET ALONG). THEY HAD A GOOD THING SET UP IN THEIR MIND. ACTUALLY EVERYONE HAS THAT SAME COMMON DENOMINATOR [INCLUDING THE CHURCH AND US AS INDIVIDUAL PART OF THE CHURCH] WE ALL TEND TO FIND A PLACE SND SETTLE IN. THE REALITY IS WE ARE TO BE GROWING AND ESPECIALLY STEPPING OUT OF OUR COMFORT ZONE. WE ALLOW JESUS TO BE LORD OF OUR HEART BUT NOT AS MUCH LORD OF OUR LIVES. SO WE SETTLE AND GO WITH THE FLOW. 

    THIS IS THE SHORT VERSION OF WHY THEIR WAS/IS NO ROOM FOR JESUS FROM THE NATION OF ISREAL AND THE RELIGIOUS SET. WHEN I RETURN I’LL ADRESS THE DISCIPLES. WE HAVE THREE MORE CATEGORIES BEFORE WE FINSH THIS POST. DISCIPLES ROME US AS CHURCH AND INDIVIDUAL CHILD OF GOD. 

    UNTIL NEXT TIME. I DO APPRECIATE YOU TAKING TIME TO VISIT THIS POST. MAY THE LORD RICHLY BLESS YOU AND YOUR EVERY ENDEAVOR TO GROW IN THE LORD. TAKE CARE. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                     EVERYTHING CHRISTMAS 

     

                                                     WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS 

     

    TODAY WE WILL TAKE A LOOK AT THE  PRE/DISCIPLES APOSTLES AND WHAT AND WHY THEY REACTED TO JESUS. JUST LIKE THE NATION OF ISREAL THE RELIGIOUS SET THE PRE DISCIPLES HAD TWO THINGS THAT WERE AT ODDS WITH EACH OTHER. YET BOTH WERE A DISTRACTION. THEY HAD THE LAW TO STAND ON. ITS BEEN WORKING FOR OVER 2000 YEARS, SO THEY WOULD NOT BE LOOKING FOR JESUS IN THE CAPACITY THAT JESUS CAME FOR. THEY ALSO HAD JOHN THE BAPTIST. SOME OF THEM WERE DIRECTLY TIED TO JOHN THE BAPTIST. HERES WHERE IT WOULD BE CONFLICTING. THE MESSAGE OF JOHN WAS THE JESUS WOULD COME TO SAVE THE WORLD. THAT WOULD MEEN THEY WOULD NO LONGER JUST HEAR OF CHRIST THEY WOULD BECOME PART OF THE CUTTING EDGE MOVEMENT. THE COMING OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. 

    ONCE JESUS CAME ON THE SEEN THEY WOULD JOIN JESUS AND LEAVE JOHN. JOHN TOOK THEM SO FAR. THE DISCIPLES HAD A FEW THINGS WORKING AGAINST THEM INTO BUYING TOTALLY INTO CHRIST. FIRST THEY SAW THE POWER JESUS HAD OVER EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING. IN THEIR MIND THERE WOULD BE NO NEED FOR A SAVIOR,JESUS COULD JUST RISE UP AND TAKE OVER THE ROMAN EMIRE. MAKING JESUS KING OF THE KNOWN WORLD. THEN THEY BEING HIS DISCIPLES IT WOULD MAKE SENCE THEY WOULD ALL BE IN PLACES OF AUTHORITY. THEY ALSO CONSTANTLY WONDERED WHY JESUS WOULD BE AT ODDS WITH THE RELIGIOUS SETS. THEY ALSO THOUGHT WITH JESUS KNOWLEDGE AND HIS POWER HE COULD JUST TAKE OVER THE WHOLE RELIGIOUS SYSTEM. THEN REARRANGE THE LEADERSHIP AND THEY WOULD ALSO BE IN PLACES OF PROMINENT POSITIONS. SO THEIR BIGGEST ISSUE IS THEY HAD AN AGENDA. BUT THEN THAT WOULD/WILL BE THE STUMBLING BLOCK FOR EVERYONE AS WE HAVE TO ALL FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS.  AGENDAS N COMPLACENCY ARE THE TWO THINGS THAT CAN DERAIL ONES RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. 

    THE NEXT TIME I RETURN WE WILL TALK ABPUT THE ROMAN EMPIRE AND POSSIBLY THE CHURCH ITSELF. THE LAST GROUP I WILL LOOK AT IS THE CHRISTIAN. UNTIL THEN GODS SPEED. THANK YOU FOR DROPPING IN. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                    EVERYTHING CHRISTMAS 

                                                    WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS 

    TODAY WE WILL LOOK AT THE ROMAN EMPIRE (ROME) AND WHY THEY HAD NO HOME FOR JESUS. THERE WERE MANY REASONS IN THE TIME OF JESUS BIRTH. WHEN CEASAR AUGUSTUS REIGNED. THIS IS A EXTREMELY MULTI IMPORTANT PERSON. HISTORICAL EVIDENCE OF HIM. ALSO DATES THAT DOCUMENT HIS RULE. THIS WOULD ALSO BE PART OF OUR HISTORICAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE PERSON,NOT QUITE AS IMPORTANT TO THE STORY OF CHRIST BIRTH IN THE HEBREW PERSPECTIVE. WHATS ALSO IMPORTANT BOUT C.A. WAS THIS WAS THE FIRST YEAR OF TAKING SENSES ALONG WITH TAXS. THAT WOULD BE IN THE PORTALS OF OUR ORAL TRADITION OF PASSING HISTORY DOWN THROUGH TEACHING/RESEARCHING THE TIMES OF BOTH C.A.AND THE BIRTH OF CHRIST. THE OTHER TWO THINGS THAT DIDN’T LEAVE MUCH ROOM FOR JESUS WAS C.A. ALSO PRONOUNCED HIMSELF AS THE GOD OF THE KNOWN WORLD/ROMAN EMPIRE. SO THEY ARE DEFINITELY NOT LOKING FOR A GOD. HE WAS ALSO THE RULER OF THE KNOWN WORLD. SO THEY ARE NOT LOOKING FOR KING EITHER. THEY HAD ONLY RECENTLY (100 or less years I think closer to 50 years) THEY WERE A POLYTHEISTIC CULTURE. THEY STOLE MOST OF GREEK MYTHOLOGY AND CONVERTED IT TO ROMAN MYTHOLOGY. LIKELY THERE WERE MANY WHO STILL WORSHIPED (likely much more in secret) POLYTHEISM OR ROMAN MYTHOLOGY. THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT GIVING UP ALL THEIR MANY GOD SYSTEM FOR JUST ONE, THAT WOULD BE OBVIOUS FOR THEY WERE NOT BUYING INTO C.A. AND HIS CLAIM.LASTLY REMEMBER THEY ARE GENTILE AND KNOWN OF US TO SPEAK OF WERE LOOKING FOR A SAVIOR. WE IN MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD SEEMED WAY MORE CONFUSED THEN ANY MYTHOLOGY TO SPEAK OF. THE ONLY REAL TIME ISSUES WOULD SHOW UP IS WHEN THE RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS GOT THEIR HOOKS IN THE SYSTEM. MUCH LIKE THE RELIGIOUS SETS/ZEALOTS WOULD BE OPPOSED TO ANYTHING CHRIST. 

    EVENTUALLY ROME WOULD AGAIN COME INTO PLAY AT THE TIME CONSTANTINE RULED ROME AFTER HIS INTERVENTION BY GOD WHICH AT LEAST STARTED THE PROCESS FOR HIM TO BECOME A TRUE BELIEVER. I AM THINKING EVEN MORE WHEN HE WON. IMHO IT TOOK A LITTLE TIME BUT HE DID COME TO CHRIST. AT THAT POINT HE CALLED ALL THE DIFFERENT FRACTIONS OF CHRISTIANITY TOGETHER AND UNITE. SO IN A SINSE ROME PUT THINGS IN MOTION FOR ROME TO PUT CHRISTIANITY IN MOTION. 

    THANK YOU ALL FOR STOPPING IN TO READ THE THOUGHTS OF N OLE MAN. NEXT TIME BACK THE SUBJECT MATTER/FOCUS MAY BE UNCOMFORTABLE AS WE WILL TALK BOUT THE MODERN CHURCH AS WELL AS THE SINGLE BELIEVER N JUST HOW MUCH CHRISTIANITY MSY BE FAILING ON SEVERAL FRONTS BOTH UNIVERSALLY LOCALLY N PERSONALLY. UNTIL THEN. GOOD SPEED MAY THE SEASON RENEW OUR HOPE OUR FAITH OUR DESIRES OUR HEARTS OUR MINDS TO ENABLE US TO BECOME CLOSER TO OUR LORD. 

    BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

    THE CREATOR CAME TO AND BECAME CREATION. SO THAT HE COULD SAVE HIS CREATION. FOR THE CREATION IN AND OF ITSELF COULD NOT BE SAVED WITHOUT THE INTERVENTION FROM THE CREATOR  DWP/2004

    EVERY BODY WANTED A PERSON THEY COULD CONTROL  ONE THEY COULD BE USED TO DO THEIR BIDDING. MAKING THEIR IDEA OF WHO THEY WANTED THEIR DOWN FALL TO SEE WHY THEY DID NOT HAVE ROOM FOR THE MESSIAH/ JESUS SEE THEY LOOKED AT CHRIST THROUGH PHYSICAL EYES. EACH, WAS UNHAPPY WITH THE STATUS QUE, EACH FEELING IF THEY COULD MANIPULATE JESUS TO CONFORM TO THEIR WILL. AT THAT TIME THEY COULD ACCOMPLISH THEIR AGENDA.  

    NONE WERE LOOKING FOR MESSIAH/SAVIOR SEE MESSIAH WOULD SAVE ALL. DOING SO IT WOULD MAKE ALL US THE SAME FAMILY  EQUALS  THIS WOULD NOT WORK FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE FULL OF PRIDE SELF ABSORBED SELF CENTERED AND SELF MOTIVATED ALSO THE ELITE. FROM THIS PERSPECTIVE TGEIR THOUGHTS N THOUGHT PROCESS IS CORRUPTED  

    LETS TAKE A LOOK AT TODAY CHURCH  IT MAY SURPRISE YOU TO SEE WHERE THE MODERN DAY CHURCH STANDS UP WITH THE PAST 2000 YEARS  

                                                 WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS 

                                     THE UNIVERSAL N LOCAL CHURCH [MINISTRY] 

    DO WE NEED A SAVIOR?  DO WE WANT TO BE SAVED? ALL ANSWERS LEAD TO JESUS (JOHN 14:6) WITHOUT CHRIST THERE IS NO CHURCH  WE ARE THE CHURCH  I AM NOT LOOKING AT THE CHUCH I AM LOOKING AT OUR PLACES OF WORSHIP OUR MINISTRY WE ATTEND.  

    DID THE PLACE YOU CAME TO WORSHIP TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE SAVED? DOES OUR PLACES DISCIPLE THOSE WHO HAVE MADE THE CHOICE TO BECOME A CHILD OF GOD? DO THEY TEACH OTHERS HOW TO SHARE THE GOSPEL. DO THEY ENCOURAGE STUDY NOT JUST READING OF THE WORD? DO THEY SEE THE NECESSITY OF BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS AMONG EACH OTHERS,AND ESPECIALLY DO THEY TEACH ENCOURAGE THE BUILDING A LOVE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD? DO WE SEE OUR FELLOW BELIEVERS USING THEIR GIFTS TO BUILD OR SOW INTO THE KINGDOM? 
    HOW BOUT PRAYER IS IT USED WITH EACHES AUTHORITY AND EXCISING THEIR FAITH, OR DO WE PRAY ONLY WHEN WE NEED SOMETHING. PRAYER IS THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL IN OUR TOOL BOX ITS ALSO THE MOST UNDERUSED N UNDERSTOOD YET OFTEN MISUSED.THE MESSAGES BROUGHT FORTH ARE NOT PREACHING BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES BUT RATHER DO NOT WANT TO MAKE WAVES  FOR MANY OF OUR LEADERSHIP ARE INTO IT FOR THE POSITION MONEY PRESTIGE  NOT SO MUCH ON SOUL WINNING  THEIR MESSAGES ARE MEANT TO PLEASE NOT MAKE ACCOUNTABLE OR CONFIRMATION. MANY PEOPLE THAT LEAD US ARE NOT THEMSELVES FAMILIAR WITH THE RESPONSIBILITIES,HONOR,PRIVILEGE THAT IS THERES FOR THEY TO WERE NOT TAUGHT

    IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THERE IS NOT GREAT MINISTRIES GREAT PLACES OF WORSHIP GREAT PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH. HOWEVER MANY ARE FAILING TO TEACH BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES  THERE ARE MANY AGENDAS EVEN IN THE BODY  

    WHEN I RETURN I WILL DISCUSS THE CHILD OF GOD AND WHERE JESUS FITS INTO ONES LIFE  BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD 

     

                                                     WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS 

                                      TODAYS CHURCH BOTH UNIVERSAL AND LOCAL

                                               NO ROOM FOR JESUS IN ONES LIFE  

    WAITED TILL AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR TO FINISH THE STUDY ON SEVERAL TOPICS. *WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS*[ NO ROOM FOR JESUS/NO ROOM IN THE INN*] WHAT IF JESUS IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS? WHAT I AM GOING TO TELL YOU IS FROM MY OBSERVATIONS AS A TEACHER, PASTOR WHO WAS INVOLVED IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT MINISTRIES. ALONG WITH MY CONVERSATIONS WITH OTHER PASTORS. THIS IS NOT ANY TYPE OF REFLECTION WITH/WITH IN OUR MINISTRY HERE. I CAN SAY I WAS NOT TAUGHT ENOUGH TO HAVE THE UNDERSTANDING OF MY OPTIONS. I JUST KNEW THEIR WAS OUR SALVATION THEN BAPTISM AFTER THAT BE AS CLOSE TO BECOME MORE LIKE JESUS. SO THERES OVER 55 YEARS OF OBSERVATIONS. 

    WE LOOKED AT THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH N LOCAL CHURCH. NOW WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT THE SINGULAR PERSON WITH IN THE LOCAL CHURCH. 

    WHY IS THERE NO HOME FOR JESUS IN OUR LIVES?

    1)WHY DO WE NOT HAVE TIME TO SPEND IN THE WORD. GODS WORD.

    2)WHY IS THERE NO ROOM FOR MEDITATION

    3) NO ROOM FOR PRAYERS OUTSIDE WHEN ONE HAS A NEED

    4) NO ROOM FOR FASTING

    5) NO ROOM FOR KINGDOM BUILDING

    6) NO ROOM FOR EVANGELISM

    7) NO ROOM.FOR BUILDING UP OTHERS

    8) NO ROOM FOR JESUS LORD OF MY HEART.N LIFE 

     

    TOMORROW I WILL GIVE YOU MY OBSERVATIONS N THOUGHTS 

    GODS SPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                             WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS

    ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS ABOVE 

    PERSONAL LIFE #1


    AS WE ARE PART OF THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH. THEN MUCH OF WHAT HAPPENS OR DOES NOT HAPPEN TRICKLES DOWN TO US. IT IS NOT AN EXCUSE IT IS A OBSERVATION. EACH OF US HAS TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH WE ARE WILLING TO GIVE. [I WOULD ASK YOU TO GO TO THE TESTIMONIAL PAGE AND LOOK UP THE ROOMMATE THAT WILL GIVE PERSPECTIVE] JESUS MADE IT PLAIN IT WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO GIVE LESS THEN 

                                                                   *ALL*

    HOW MUCH OF OUR HEART SOUL MIND SPIRIT ARE WE WILLING TO GIVE? TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS PUT FORTH ABOVE.

     
    HERES PART #1 MY TAKE. MOST WOULD RATHER KEEP OUR STREET CRED AND BE POLITICALLY CORRECT. WE DO NOT WANT TO LOOSE OUR FRIENDS SO WE DO NOT GIVE CHRIST MUCH MORE THEN OUR HEART AT SALVATION. THEY WANT TO BLEND IN NOT STAND OUT. JESUS WAS RADICALLY DIFFERENT SO SHOULD WE BE. TAKING A STAND IS NOT EASY. BUT THE SWEET RELEASE IT BRINGS IS LIBERATING. THEY SAY IT IS MY LIFE LET ME LIVE IT THE WAY I WANT. THEY ARE TRULY CONTENT IT WHAT EVER STAUS/RELATIONSHIP THEY HAVE WITH GOD. THEY WILL TELL IT IS THEIR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND THEY DO NOT FEEL THE RESPONSIBILITY TO SHARE THEIR TESTIMONY. YET MAYBE WE LOOK N ACT SO MUCH LIKE THE WORLD THEY WOULD NOT LISTEN TO US. SO WE ARE TOLD TO STAND OUT THEY SAY I WANT MANS ACCEPTANCE. THEY ARE TOLD TO HAVE COMPASSION. YET THEY ARE SELF CENTERED CERTAINLY SELF ABSORBED AND REALLY DO NOT CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO EVERYONE ELSE. THEY ARE TOLD TO FORGIVE N LET GO BUT THEY RESENT(ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE QUESTIONED BOUT THEIR STAND WITH GOD). THEY ARE TOLD TO ENCOURAGE BUT  THEY DISCOURAGE. THEY BY DOING SO ACTUALLY DESTROY. THE WORD SAYS BE MEEK. THEY ARE MEAN SPIRITED. HUMBLENESS IS BIG WITH GOD. ARROGANCE IS BIG WITH THOSE WHO ARE NOT GOD CENTERED
    TO MANY TIMES WE WANT TO FIT IN. WE TRY AND PLAY BOTH SIDES. JESUS SAID YOU AFE FOR ME OR YOUR AGAINST ME. HOWEVER WE WOULD RATHER BE POPULAR AT LEAST IN OUR SPHERE OF INFLUENCE. THEN TO BE A SERVANT FOR OUR LORD. WE HAVE ALLOWED JESUS TO BE LORD IN OUR HEART YET  NOT OF OUR LIFE

    *WE ARE WAY TO OFTEN MISTAKEN AS A CHRISTIAN RATHER THAN TO BE KNOWN AS A CHRISTIAN.*. THINK ON THAT TILL I RETURN I AM NOT SURE HOW LOMG BEFORE I RETURN. UNTIL THEN THANK YOU ALL FOR SPENDING YOUR PRECIOUS TIME HERE. 

    GODS SPEED. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                       WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS 

    ANSWER TO QUESTIONS ABOVE. 

    PERSONAL LIFE#2. WHY AM I MISTAKEN FOR A CHRISTIAN? 

     

    WELL LETS BEGIN WITH 10%. WE OFTEN THNK THIS HAS TO DO STRICTLY WITH TITHING. THERE IS NO ONE PLACE THAT SAYS TITHE IS 10%. THERE IS MENTION OF IT AND OTHER TYPES OF SACRIFICES BUT NOT UNDER THE CATEGORY OF TITHING. HOWEVER WE HAVE SEEN THAT HAS A BENCH MARK. A GOOD PLACE TO START.  THERES MORE TO THE 10% THEN MONEY. BUT LETS THINK ON THE TITHING. DO WE GIVE THE EXPECTED AMOUNT? IF WE MISS A WEEK OR TWO DO WE MAKE UP FOR THE LAST TWO WEEKS,MOST DO NOT. DO YOU GIVE BUT ONLY OUT OF OBLIGATION OR OBEDIENCE, THEN YOUR HEART IS IN THE WRONG PLACE. PERSONALLY I THINK GOD WOULD RATHER THAKE A SMALLER AMOUNT IF YOUR HEART IS RITE. OK WHAT ABOUT OUR TIME FOR STUDY MEDITATION PRAYER LISTING TO CHRISTIAN MUSIC TELLING OTHERS HOW TO GET SAVED (NOT A REQUEST. IT IS CALLED THE GREAT COMMISSION) DO WE SPND TIME WITH OTHER BELIEVERS.WE WILL SAY JUST NOT ENOUGH TIME.  SO WE HAVE 168 HOURS IN A WEEK. 56 HOURS ARE FOR SLEEP. NOW WE HAVE 112 HOURS LEFT. 45/HOURS FOR WORK AND TRAVEL THAT LEAVES 67 HOURS LEFT. THATS 9 HOURS A DAY. OUT OF THAT 9 WE TAKE 5 OUT FOR DOMESTICS NOW HERES THE MATH. 168 HOURS ONE TENTH OF THAT 16.8 HOURS. APPROXIMATELY 2.1 HOURS A DAY TO GIVE TEN PERCENT OF YOUR TIME. FUNNY THING IS WE GIVE 14-21% TO THE CREDIT CARD GOD. THINK ON THAT. ALSO THE TIME CONSTRAINT IS NOT REALLY THERE RITE. 

    GIVING TO GOD OR GIVING TO SELF  WHICH WORKS BETTER YOU THINK  THIS IS WHY ITS SO IMPORTANT TO KNOW GODS WORD  HE SAID SEEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN……. AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE GIVEN YOU   SO WHY DO I CHACE AFTER THINGS THAT GOD ALL READY HAS FOR ME? WHICH TURNS OUT SPIRITUAL SUCCESS. WE SHOULD WANT TO BLESS OTHERS  INSTEAD WE WANT GOD TO BLESS US, RATHER THEN FOR GOD TO BLESS US SO WE CAN BE A BLESSINGS TO OTHERS  

    THE BIBLE (SOLOMON SAID THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT  RAISE YOUR CHILDREN UP IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD…..AND THEY WILL NOT DEPART FROM IT  THE WORD ALSO SAYS THE CHILDREN WILL SUFFER FOR THERE PARENTS N GRANDPARENTS SIN  WHEN WE RAISE OUR CHILDREN TO BE CONNECTED TO THE WORLD N NOT GOD. THEN WE ARE SETTING THEM UP FOR VERY HARD LIVES  AS THEY HAVE NO ONE OR NO NOT TO GO TO GOD  HOW SAD TO GIVE BIRTH  TO A CHILD AND NOT GIVE THEM THE GIFT OF SALVATION  WE ARE WILLING TO WATCH OUR CHILDREN N THEIR CHILDREN GO TO HELL BECAUSE WE EANTED TO BLEND IN,BE POLITICALLY CORRECT. 

    WE FTEN SPEAK OF GOD AS IF WE ARE AN AUTHORITY. HOPING THE PERSON WE TALK TO HAS LESS KNOWLEDGE THEN I  HOWEVER THERE IS NOTHING BEHIND THOSE WORDS  WHEN YOU CAN NOT BE RADICALLY DIFFERENT THEN THE WORLD WHEN YOU CAN NOT SHOW THAT YOU HAVE THE POWER OF GOD WITHIN YOU  THEN NO ONE WILL TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY.  THERES AN OLD SAYING  TALK IS CHEAP IF YOU WANT TO KEEP WHAT YOU GOT THEN BACK IT UP  SAME HERE WE WANT TO TALK AS A CHRISTIAN WHEN CONVENIENT BUT WILL NOT A T LIKE A CHILD OF GOD IN FRONT OF OTHERS  HOW BOUT THAT LANGUAGE DO YOU SPEAK ONE WAY WHEN YOU ARE AROUND GODLY PEOPLE N ANOTHER WAY WITH FRIENDS CO WORKERS ECT  AGAIN THERES NO POWER IN OUR WORDS  ACTIONS ALWAYS SPEAK LOUDER THEN WORDS  

    SHOW ME WHO YOU RUN WITH WHEN NO ONE IS PAYING ATTENTION AND I WILL SHOW YOU WHO YOU ARE.  WE SEEM TO THINK GOD IS OUR ERRON BOY  HE IS TGERE TO DO MY BIDDING YES HE WORKS FOR ME  INSTEAD OF US WORKING BECAUSE OF WHAT WAS GIVEN US THROUGH CHRIST (SALVATION)  

    CONCLUSION  FOR THE MOST PART WE ARE EITHER MIS INFORMED (NOT GOOD EXCUSS) WE ARE NOT SERIOUS ABOUT LIVING A SPIRITUAL LIFE PLEASING TO GOD  HERES A FEW WORDS  ARROGANT DO NOT CARE THEN THERES LAZY  YA LAZY  THAT LIKELY IS OUR BIGGEST ISSUE  

    JESUS WILL ALWAYS BE THERE FOR US JOHN 3:15 / 14:6  HE TOLD US IN THRPE GREAT COMMISSION   N LO I WILL NOT LEAVE OR FORSAKE YOU  I WILL BE WITH YOU ALWAY  IF WE ARE LACKING IN ANY AREA  SEEK /FIND ASK/RECEIVE  KNOCK/DOOR IS OPEN (HESUS IS THE DOOR) 

    CHRIST LEFT TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR US  QUESTION IS  WHAT IS JESUS DOING IS HE BUILDING OR DESTROYING  IS HE BUILDING WITH THE PREVERBAL HAMMER OR RECKING BALL

    EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE THAT GOD HAS LAID OUT IS DEPENDENT ON

                                           *WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH JESUS* 

    KNOW JESUS KNOW PEACE NO JESUS NO PEACE   CHOOSE WISELY  

    THIS IS OFFICIALLY THE CLOSING OF THIS TOPIC  I HOPE IT ENCOURAGES US TO MAKE SURE JESUS HAS A PLACE NOT JUST IN OUR HEART BUT IN OUR LIVES  THANK YOU ALL FOR READING THIS POST  GODS SPEED  BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD
