Our life should be a dedication to GOD

97c752cfb303d1c031c14f2e46efc90a--one-year-bible-the-bible

This blog is for all to read but it’s primarily for my brother’s and sister’s who have been washed in the blood of CHRIST JESUS and grafted into HIS Vine.

We are to be encouraged by one another and be accountable sharing with each other without being judgmental of how we are desiring to dedicate our bodies to the FATHER, and we need HIS help by the Holy Spirit to be who HE said we can be in HIS SON, CHRIST JESUS. This is the reasonable sacrifice that we offer up to the FATHER daily. We live in a sinful world and spend most of our quality time with sinful people. However, just because we live in a sinful world and spend most of our time around none believers in CHRIST JESUS does not mean that we are to remain with the same character and integrity as we once had which resembled who we must be around at work, school or wherever we are to be daily. We please and worship GOD when we take on the character and image of CHRIST JESUS. I have passed by some sinners who actually smell as though they are residents of hell now because of the sulfur scent that comes from them. Not all none believers emit that scent. It’s a sickening scent and we should not want to remain in the presence of people that have that scent coming from them. And some not all but some CHRISTians actually have the scent of heaven emitting from them, I hope that if not daily though I hope to have it daily that from time to time I emit the scent of heaven from my being. I desire to be a sweet aroma to the nostrils of my DADDY and BIG BROTHER JESUS. A few years ago, I witnessed a pastor instruct the congregation to prepare for a burnt offering to bring in the New Year. Among other things that I heard her teach and behave I would speak with my sister’s in CHRIST about what we’ve witnessed. I had to make it plain that what she was teaching was no longer required and that it is the Law rather than Grace. Some of what I shared was agreeable and some of what I shared was disagreeable to my sisters. It showed me that though they are great women of GOD that they still mix law with grace. One day it came down to a showdown between the pastor and myself when she told me that I was not allowed to teach the grace of GOD and to harp on salvation. I have to explain, this knocked the wind out of my sails, but I recovered quickly and said, “so you plan to lead your congregation to hell and keep them blind to the full knowledge of CHRIST JESUS”? She did not much like that, and I asked her to never again ask me to visit her ministry or to be a guest speaker. Today, her ministry no longer exist. We need to teach that CHRIST JESUS forgives all not just some but all sin. JESUS CHRIST died for the entire world and HE rose from the dead. We need to teach that though JESUS CHRIST lived under the law and was the only One who kept each and every commandment and law that HIS teaching surpassed the law. We need to know when HE spoke law and when HE spoke grace, grace being the instrument that we are to live by today in order for us to be obedient to the commandments and law without having to memorize them or work them through performance. As well as to not become guilt driven because we did not do what is right in the sight of GOD. None of us were born when JESUS CHRIST died on that cross and none of us were alive when HE rose from the grave, yet, HE forgave us of all our sins. And because our sins have been forgiven and we believe this by faith in CHRIST JESUS to be the One and Only perfect sacrifice we no longer have a need to perform to be approved by the FATHER. Unlike our ancestors, before the death of JESUS CHRIST, they had to annually make a sacrifice to GOD for their sin. But have you ever thought about what if they sinned as they were leaving the High Priest after giving their sacrifice? It’s not a what if because they did, if not in action surely in thought, they would have to wait an entire year before offering another sacrifice. Our sacrifice was perfect in CHRIST JESUS and there is no need for HIM to lay HIMself down again on the cross and be nailed to it and die then rise again. No, it was done once and for all, never to be repeated. In CHRIST JESUS we obtained a new life for our living a life of having a personal relationship with the FATHER without an earthly mediator who was a sinner or is a sinner. Our Mediator is CHRIST JESUS our great HIGH PRIEST who was never created in sin, never born in sin, never committed sin. Because sin was not and is not in HIM.

We are not to remain as the people of the world people should see a positive change in our life. People should be attracted to what it is that we have which is CHRIST JESUS but for some, they will be repelled because they just don’t want anything to do with HIM. Let us not be like those who are religious, they may faithfully attend church service, but the proof is that the Church is not in them because it is evident that the seeds which were sown fell on weeds or thorny plants. They are more concerned about what is going on in this world rather than living for CHRIST JESUS. When we are overcome by anxiety, stress, and worries we are unproductive fruit in the Spirit. These are the things which choke the Word of GOD right out of us and we allow it to be so. CHRIST JESUS set us free by giving HIMself over for our sins, HE was obedient to the FATHER. So, why are we so in love with the world because the world surely does not love us let alone in love with us? Everything that the world has to offer is temporary and when we choose the world over CHRIST JESUS we are void of love from the FATHER.  A sin that I admittingly struggle with is this: my thoughts. Though I know to cast down negative and sinful thoughts I don’t always do so. Here is how we are to overcome negative and sinful thoughts cast them out by speaking the Word of GOD. Go ahead give yourself this test, think whatever you like, now count verbally. What happened to those thoughts? Where did they go? Our minds were not created to speak thoughts while our mouth is speaking. So, instead of thinking evil and sinful thoughts or having a back and forth conversation with the devil about what you did and who he says that you are. Speak the Word of GOD, remind yourself of who GOD is and who you are to HIM. It does not require us to speak loudly so that another person can hear, it just requires us to speak loud enough that you can hear yourself. No one is transformed outwardly in, rather we are transformed inwardly out. The change that we experience comes from the inside, not the outside. Remember that song by Pattie LaBelle “I’ve got a new attitude”? This is what we are to possess in CHRIST JESUS a new attitude by the renewing of our thoughts. Our attitude is not done by the works we perform, it’s nice to volunteer and do nice things but what is the motive behind them? If it’s not done purely out of love, grace, and mercy it’s fruitless. We are to never perform believing that it will give us entry into heaven or brownie points with GOD. CHRIST JESUS saved us not because of anything that we have done but because we were sinners far away from our CREATOR, from our heavenly GOD who is Almighty. We are saved because of GOD’s mercy towards us. We believe in CHRIST JESUS then we are washed in HIS blood and we are renewed by the Holy Spirit. Lastly, our sacrifice to GOD is to live our lives free from sexual immorality which is a sin. This is what sexual immorality is: lewdness; lust; adultery; bestiality; fornication; homosexuality or any other sexual act that I may not be aware of. The man and woman who are married to one another are omitted from sexual immorality because their marriage bed is undefiled, Heb.13:4. The will of GOD is that we are sanctified and abstain, this is our dedication and devotion to GOD.

Romans 12:1-2; Phil. 4:18; Heb. 10:18, 20;  Matt. 13:22; Gal. 1:4; 1 John 2:15; Eph. 4:23; Titus 3:5; 1 Thess. 4:3-8

We are Conquerors in and through CHRIST JESUS

christians-are-more-than-conquerors

Humanly speaking we are weak. This is why it is a requirement that we have the Holy Spirit of GOD through CHRIST JESUS living and operating within us. He is the One who gives us power and strength to do the impossible and to say that which needs to be said. The Holy Spirit is our helper. When we speak without the help of the Holy Spirit, we say ridiculous things like “all that the LORD has spoken we will do; Ex. 19:8” or “we are able, or we can; Mt. 20:22”. We are not able or can do anything without the help of the Holy Spirit. What we are able and can do is manufacture a mess somewhere down the road of life for either ourselves, others or both. We love to say, “GOD knows my heart” and though this is very true the problem is that we don’t know our own heart. Our heart is manipulative and wicked. And it is proven by the thoughts that we have and the actions that correspond to our thoughts. GOD is the ONE who knows the mind of the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit is the One who intercedes on our behalf. When we pray, we should pray through the Holy Spirit because HE never repeats Himself or says things that should not be said. We are always saying ridiculous things in prayer because I hear what people say in group prayers. For example, it is clear that some of us do not know the will of GOD because we will say “if it is your will” first of all we should know from the scriptures GOD’s will and when we know HIS will then we will not say that. But what we can acknowledge that we don’t want to do or say something that GOD has directed us to say or do because we are uncomfortable about that. Then it’s okay to say, “let you will be done”. Are you secure in the knowledge that GOD the FATHER loves you? If so great because HE actually does and everything going on in our life is or will work out for our good because we too love GOD, the FATHER and CHRIST JESUS who is our LORD and Savior or just our Savior. Why did I write it that way? Because in all honesty, we will receive CHRIST JESUS as our Savior long before we will receive HIM as our LORD which means we have surrendered and given HIM complete and total control over us. Admittingly, we know that GOD has saved us and has called us to be HIS own holy people. Not because we were all that great or because of what we were doing or are doing thinking that this will get us into heaven. It is only by HIS grace, love, and mercy towards us that HE did what HE did for our salvation. Before the world was created and began GOD had purposed that CHRIST JESUS will show us GOD’s kindness and mercy. GOD had already chosen HIS people and appointed them by separating us so that we will be formed in the very likeness of HIS SON. We are the approved and the called and HIS congregation swells daily, we have been justified in CHRIST JESUS and because of what CHRIST JESUS has done and in our receipt of HIM through believing in HIM we are glorified. Stop looking at ourselves as being black, brown, red, white or yellow this is not who we are, this is not our race. Our race is that we are a holy nation and a royal priesthood. We have been chosen by GOD we are HIS generation, we are HIS special people because we belong to HIM. So, now that we are aware of this fact, we should be able through HIM to proclaim to everyone orally or in our lifestyle the wonderful actions of our GOD. Share with people through your testimony how you were saved and taken out of the darkness and placed in the marvelous light of CHRIST. And those who are in the light of CHRIST find it necessary to bless those who do and say evil things about them, it’s a strange yet marvelous way that we show that we belong to CHRIST JESUS we share in the blessings of GOD to others because we know that we are blessed to be a blessing. Nothing can separate us from GOD’s everlasting love through CHRIST JESUS. Don’t you know that GOD is for us so why worry about those who are against us? We should know that we have been made righteous through CHRIST JESUS and not by obeying the law of which we never did anyway. The foundation of our faith is solely in CHRIST JESUS not the Ten Commandments or the Laws of Moses. The LORD our GOD is with us! And because the FATHER handed HIS only begotten SON over to death for us don’t, we know that HE will not withhold anything from us? It was because of our sins that JESUS chose to die for us but HE did not remain dead, we don’t have a dead Savior, JESUS is very much alive and because HE lives we have received GOD’s approval. It does not matter that we are being accused by our past life without CHRIST JESUS, know that because of the washing of the blood we are not guilty because GOD HIMself said so. So, let the ignorance of others try to condemn us, don’t allow that to bother you, CHRIST JESUS is alive sitting at the right hand of the FATHER interceding on our behalf. That’s right, CHRIST JESUS is sitting on the right-hand side of the FATHER because HE has the position of honor. CHRIST JESUS is not slack in doing the impossible for us and that is to save us from our worst self, only believe in HIM and until the day of HIS return when HE will gather all of us who belong to HIM, HE will be in the position of praying for us all.

We are so loved that we have been given complete and total victory, yes, we are conquerors through CHRIST JESUS. To all of my siblings in CHRIST JESUS you are dearly beloved and because of this nothing in heaven, on earth nor beneath the earth which is hell can separate us from the love given to us by GOD through HIS SON, CHRIST JESUS. Take a look at what is said so that we will have a complete understanding that we can’t be separated from GOD’s love.

  • Death nor life
  • Heavenly angels nor evicted angels who are known as demons that rule the airwaves with the power that we give to them
  • The present, past nor future
  • The world above (heaven) nor the world below (hell)
  • Nothing that has been created because it is a mere creation

None of those things can or will be able to separate us from the love of GOD our FATHER and HIS SON, CHRIST JESUS unless we allow them to. Get it, got it, good.

True life is in the Spirit

download

We are totally free from indwelling sin when we have the Holy Spirit living within us. It is not possible for the Holy Spirit to live in a temple of sin. And it is GOD’s precious Holy Spirit that makes us HIS son’s. One of my favorite words is “now”. Now is the present time not the past or the future. One of our problems as believers is that we look for what will happen in the sweet by and by which is our way of believing that all that we know of GOD’s will through reading the scriptures may happen for us in the future once we get to heaven. No, we are learning about the nature of GOD now through CHRIST JESUS. When we came to CHRIST JESUS and invited HIM into our heart it was in that now that all sin was executed and thrown out of our life. And though we have a measure of the Holy Spirit living within us there is a greater portion of the Spirit of GOD when we invite the Holy Spirit to come and live within us and this is called the baptism of the Holy Spirit. When we are baptized in the Holy Spirit of GOD, we are totally filled with Him and have that fire and power through GOD’s most wonderful strength through HIS anointed SON, CHRIST JESUS. We need to stop dwelling on our past because that person has died along with all the guilt that we had to deal with. We are no longer guilty of our past because in our now there is no sin and because there is no sin in our now than we are no longer condemned by the actions of sin. We can no longer be judged by our one-time unbelief in CHRIST JESUS or the actions which were the fruit and consequences of sin. GOD has already judged us to be righteous in HIM through CHRIST JESUS. So, it is very possible for us to make the choice to not walk according to the lust of our flesh. We don’t have to cuss someone out for doing anything that we consider a big negative deal. We don’t have to have those negative thoughts against someone at work, in our home, community or church. We can choose to live in the will of GOD. And, we may need to concentrate on one area of our life for that thing that we are aware of that goes against the will of GOD. Or, we can just surrender our entire being to the FATHER in CHRIST JESUS and rest on the fact of knowing that HE got us. Stop trying to be the best CHRISTian and just be from day to day from now to now. Find out about the grace of GOD and rest in that.

We are to walk in the Spirit rather than our flesh, we use to walk according to the will of our flesh and allowed our emotions to dictate to us. Now, we are to walk in the Holy Spirit who will guide, lead, teach and train our emotions so that our flesh will follow accordingly. Allowing the Holy Spirit to lead and teach us causes us to discontinue walking according to the will of our flesh. Come to know who the Holy Spirit is and what His position is and we will live our natural life supernaturally which causes us to be directed by the Holy Spirit and the fulfillment of GOD through CHRIST JESUS. The flesh is sinful and corrupt this is why we must be led and taught by the Holy Spirit. Know that our flesh is not saved but our soul is but without the Holy Spirit living on the inside of us we will continue to live by the will of our emotions which leads our flesh. Now, we will be living according to the teaching of the Holy Ghost who can only speak of CHRIST JESUS who is the author and finisher of our faith. We used to give in to our own desires now we give in to the desires of CHRIST JESUS by the comfort of HIS Spirit.

ABBA

abba_father_hebrew_mug-r43d327b885e44adc8a953227b3b0f80f_kfpx1_307

ABBA is the Aramaic translation of FATHER. Only males can beget children, they are the only ones who can be the generator. Abba (earthly fathers) become the ancestor of his offspring, the progenitor. The title of honor and respect. The title itself is not holy but it is a title that denotes that the child has an intimate relationship with the man that is biologically tied to him/her. This title has been known to be used by children who are adopted, has a step-father or father-figure. GOD/ABBA, unlike earthly fathers, is not One who will deny us or brag about us, yet, has not had any input into our lives. GOD/ABBA is better than the best father we have in our lives. For those of you who do not or did not experience a positive life or a life at all with a father, you may find it difficult to see GOD as ABBA/FATHER, let alone your DADDY. All humans have a father, but all humans don’t have a daddy. A father is the one who planted the seed that caused us to be. A daddy is a provider and teacher. The one who takes his arrow (his kid, kids) and point them in the direction they are to go in life and with his bow shoot them in that direction. He is the one who sets the atmosphere in the home of leadership. To all mankind GOD/ABBA is our FATHER but only because HE is the ONE who created man. When people say that GOD is their FATHER it is correct but we must look at how HE is their FATHER when they do not have the SON/JESUS abiding on the inside of them. Take a look at the Israelites that were set free from the bondage of slavery in Egypt, they were the children of the Living GOD but they were not saved. Before they reached Mt. Sinai and the Ten Commandments was written, grace was with them. After, all that went down at Mt. Sinai they had to prove themselves through works by the conditions of the Law of Moses. I shudder to think how many died in righteousness and how many died lost. Well, it’s like this today, those who do not have grace abiding within them they are not the sons of the Living GOD in the sense that JESUS came to cause. Anyone who has CHRIST JESUS abiding within, and they are living in CHRIST JESUS is not only a child of creation who is the descendant of Adam, but we are better because we have been adopted by the washing of the blood of JESUS and grafted into the family of JESUS to be the sons of the Living GOD. And because we have sonship we can come boldly before the Almighty GOD and call HIM DADDY.

Often in the scriptures, we can find JESUS telling HIS disciples about HIS ABBA/FATHER. Whether it was in public or when HE was in agony about something that HIS flesh did not want to go through but because of HIS obedience to HIS ABBA/FATHER, HE did just what HE was sent here to do. Those without JESUS abiding within can’t understand the deity of CHRIST. We know that HE is one hundred percent Man and one hundred percent GOD and some of the most mature CHRISTians when reading the Word of GOD have a difficult time separating the Man from GOD in the scriptures. When JESUS was praying in the garden asking HIS ABBA/FATHER to choose another method to complete the mission this was his humanity speaking. In most cases when we are facing extremely difficult times in our lives we forget to run directly to our ABBA/FATHER and cry out to HIM letting HIM know what is going on and that we need HIS help to either get through this trial or to get out. Our telling ABBA what is going on is not as though HE is unaware, HE sees all and HE knows all. In the difficult times in our life, we forget that our ABBA/FATHER can do anything because nothing is impossible for HIM, HE can do anything that is good and what is best for our favor. We must believe that it is not HIM that sent the turmoil that we are going through saying that it is the will of GOD. No, ABBA/DADDY does not send confusion and turmoil into our life because HE is not the author of confusion. We need to understand that some of the hell that we are going through was because we walked or ran into it with eyes wide shut. Though we are in hell all we need do is call out to ABBA and HE will lead us out. JESUS already faced hell for us so why are we going through it? I sometimes ask people “what in the hell do they want?” Not using this to be profane because generally it is used as such. We are facing hell because we are following our own will rather than the will of the ABBA/FATHER.

So, the question is, who is your ABBA, abba? Notice the lower case abba, I refuse to capitalize the father that those without CHRIST in their lives worship knowingly or unknowingly. Fact, you minus CHRIST equals your abba/father being satan. Are you in fear are you in bondage to someone or something that you unknowingly have victory over? Then maybe your abba/daddy is satan because if your ABBA/DADDY is the Creator, Ruler, and KING over everything then you do not have a spirit that causes you to be in fear or bondage. The Spirit that ABBA/FATHER has given to us is the Spirit that comes with love and power to have a calm and well-balanced mind with discipline and self-control. Your abba/daddy gives you the spirit of opposition to what our ABBA/FATHER gives to us. We have been adopted praise GOD to be sons rather than mere children through CHRIST JESUS and is given the Spirit that causes us to call out ABBA/my FATHER/my DADDY. Remember, when we were, wee tots, and someone or something hurt us to the point that we were crying, who did we call out to? I know, mother (lol) but some of us called out to both. Also, because we have been adopted, we are given a name that can never, ever be cut away or off from us. WoW, this is so amazing!

Now that we are the sons of the Living GOD and HE is now known to us as ABBA/my FATHER/my DADDY/my DA/my POP/my POPPY or whatever affectionate name you call your earthly daddy that no other man has of honor to him. We have from HIM the Spirit of HIS SON JESUS. What!? Wait a minute, we have the Spirit of CHRIST JESUS, I thought that we have the Holy Spirit! I know this is how I reacted some years ago when I was given the revelation knowledge that the Holy Spirit is the same Spirit that JESUS released from the cross. “FATHER into YOUR hands I commit MY Spirit” Lk. 23:46. WoW, kinda awesome, huh!? This is why HE told HIS disciples that HE was not leaving them comfortless because HE was going to send HIS Holy Spirit not encased within HIS flesh any longer and not just hovering over as it was in times past but He will now reside within our heart. And He will be the cause of why we acknowledge and call out to ABBA/our FATHER/our DADDY to no longer just refer to HIM as GOD but because of the intimate relationship, because we have become so comfortable in HIS presence, we now call HIM ABBA/DADDY/FATHER. And, we can sit up on HIS lap to rest and love on HIM.

Abides

abide-in-christ (1)

It is my desire along with that of my FATHER that all of mankind be in CHRIST JESUS. To continue, exist, live, rest, stand firm and be stationary for an indefinite time only in HIM. How can anyone read this and not want this for themselves? To abide/live in CHRIST JESUS, HE must live within us. We must be able to say just as JESUS did, “I AM in the FATHER, and the FATHER is in ME”. But ours should be said in like manner, “I abide in the FATHER, I abide in CHRIST JESUS and the FATHER and CHRIST JESUS abides in me”.

CHRISTianity is all about the righteous fruitfulness in CHRIST JESUS. When we go to a fruit or nut tree, we expect to see the fruit that it produces. When we go to a fruit patch or vine, we again expect to see the fruit that it’s to produce. Any person who professes to be a CHRISTian and does not bear luscious fruit is not a CHRISTian at all. What it takes to be a CHRISTian is the indwelling of CHRIST JESUS, HE must abide/live on the inside of us and in turn, we abide/live in HIM. Gal. 5:19-21 reveals to us what type of fruit weeds bear and Gal. 5:22-23 reveals to us what type of fruit vines bear. The fruit of a true CHRISTian will be revealed in our temper, disposition, conversation, devotions, and seal/stamp. We must honor GOD in all things, do good, and exemplify the purity and power of who we profess in and who we profess to be. We are disciples of CHRIST JESUS and we must be fruitful in all the fruits of righteousness. That is what it looks like when we abide in JESUS and JESUS abides in us. How many of you understand what conditions are? Well, if you are unclear let me help you out. The condition, the term of a contract/covenant; a stipulation; an established proposal. Conditions most often are proceeded with “if”. “If” is a sign of a condition, it introduces the fact that what is coming next is a condition. In other words, it’s a pro and con; if you do this then you will get that. Plain and simple this is legalism. When we read the words of the gospel during the time that JESUS lived here on earth, HE, lived and obeyed perfectly the conditions of the Ten Commandments and the Law of Moses that were attached, all six hundred and thirteen of them. JESUS also demonstrated and taught how we were to fulfill each. When JESUS spoke conditionally, HE was speaking as Man who is under the law. JESUS was subject to the regulations of the Law, Gal. 4:4. So, in understanding this and because we have studied the Law, we know that in the Old Testament, GOD would provide with conditions. Because the Law has no grace to demonstrate how we are to remain obedient to what we were to perform. Now, JESUS is our demonstrator, though HE spoke about abiding in HIM conditionally, HE taught us how to love unconditionally and how we are able to be obedient in and through HIM. We’ve heard HIM tell us about HIS Holy Spirit that HE would give to us so that we will not be left comfortless and powerless although we are saved in HIM. It is through HIS Holy Spirit that we have the power to overcome those conditions that HE spoke of. The verse in John 15:7 should cause the children of GOD to ponder that for a while, we should ask ourselves the question “how is it possible to abide in JESUS and HE not abide in us?” It’s impossible. So, because this is impossible to be, why does JESUS say; “if you abide in me and I in you?” Again, I believe this bears repeating, any person who professes to be a CHRISTian and does not bear luscious fruit is not a CHRISTian at all because it is impossible to bear the fruit of righteousness when JESUS and HIS Word is not in us and we are not in JESUS and HIS Word. Do you know what the Commandment of CHRIST JESUS is that we are to actually obey? Or, are we still trying to commit to memory the Ten Commandments and not being able to obey them because we are missing the main ingredient required? JESUS CHRIST left us with this one commandment of HIS that will cause us to live accordingly to the Ten Commandments. We are to abide in this commandment “I [JESUS] give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I [JESUS] have loved you, so you too should love one another. When we abide in this commandment then we will fulfill the Law. Also, in our abiding in love through CHRIST JESUS we have the following; faith, hope and love the greatest being love.

Our strength comes from our abiding in GOD’s Word and HIS Word abiding within us. Though development of muscle is great for the physical how much more do we realize that our flexibility and muscle mass is being greatly developed when we are abiding in the Word of GOD? Finally, I leave with you that we are to allow Truth/JESUS to abide within us and in this union, we will eternally abide in the FATHER and in the SON.

John 15:5, 7, 10; 1 Cor. 13:13; 1 Jhn. 2:14, 24

Abundantly

download (1)

We all want this, don’t exactly know what this is but we all want it. Well, I’m here to share with you that what we all want is abundance in everything good. We all want an abundance of money so that we will never have to work again. We all want an abundance of clothes and shoes. We all want an abundant supply of whatever it is that we want. Well, my only answer for our having a desire to be blessed abundantly is found in the scriptures which informs us that we can be fully sufficient with an abundant supply that is only in GOD who supplies us aboundingly, in the measure of great quantity and overflowing.

It is the LORD who said HIMself, the LORD GOD is gracious, longsuffering (patient), and merciful, HE is abundant in goodness and truth. Ex. 34:6

That above is the character and nature of GOD the FATHER and of GOD the SON, CHRIST JESUS. It is HIS nature to be compassionate, faithful and ever ready to forgive. HE knows mankind because HE became Man and it is because of this that HE takes pity on us, HE is not easily angered with us and HE is consistently showing us HIS great love. But when we don’t know the FATHER and the SON intimately by being in an ongoing relationship with HIM then how are we to know HIS character and nature? We can’t and this is why we believe and fall for the dumb things that sound good but are in actuality a cheap shot at the character and very nature of GOD from satan and his demons.

Do we really know that satan and his demons are thieves and that it is their mission to steal the abundant life that we are to have in CHRIST JESUS away from us by keeping us blind, deaf and dumb to HIS Word? Every second of our life that we are not living in the abundant life of CHRIST JESUS is a second too long. Because without the Word of GOD living within us, we are daily being destroyed and killed. CHRIST JESUS stepped down from HIS throne and out of the bosom of HIS FATHER to live among us. HE taught us how to obey the Law of Moses without it killing us by one important principle and that is love, love towards our CHRISTian siblings and to exalt HIM without shame before others. To be led by the Holy Ghost who is our powerful instructor of all things CHRIST. This is what grace teaches us not the Law of Moses. True life in CHRIST JESUS is an abundant life that never dries up and blows away. We are given so much that it flows over the rim of our vessel. There is nothing that we will need because CHRIST JESUS has already made provision for us to have. Sure, there are things that we want but it’s mostly in the wanting that we may not receive because far too often it’s what we want that we actually do not need. We must learn the difference between our needs and our wants.

See CHRIST JESUS as being our abundance and we too will be able to live abundantly in CHRIST.

John 10:10

Acceptable

103069417-acceptable-word-on-watercolor-background-watercolor-background-concept-design

There is nothing better for us to accept than that of CHRIST JESUS and HIS Word. Glory be to the GOD Most High! I watch and listen to how those who are in darkness have no problem accepting all the foolishness that’s out here in this sinful world. Sometimes I sit back and wonder if they have the ability to listen and see because they follow with the program of the wicked like little puppies who love unconditionally. The church should know that that there is nothing better than what the Word of GOD promises to people and share that with others in their words and actions. Ask yourself what is acceptable to you that you have received with pleasure and if it’s something that you desire to share with others such as GOD’s Good News. GOD’s Good News is what we all need, and we must try and give it to others as well as meet the needs of those who are without. This will give us, the church, gratification because this is what we should be doing. I guess this blog is being inspired by the lack of compassion that the president of the USA lacks. Today is the mark of one full month that people have not been able to earn a living and provide for their families. We as the church need to understand that though we are praying for those without, this is the opportunity that we must show the compassion of CHRIST JESUS, that we must be about doing the work and show the love of CHRIST JESUS rather than just the Words of CHRIST JESUS.

Today is the acceptable time that we are hearing the voice of GOD in our spirit. Today is the acceptable day that we usher the lost, the hurting, the distressed, the anxious and worried to CHRIST JESUS. We must show what we as the body and church of CHRIST are about. JESUS when on earth helped, HE did not sit back on HIS principles and just pray. HE saw the need and HE helped along with HIS disciples who also received gratification in what they were doing by following what JESUS was doing. JESUS is the One who preserves us. It’s the glory we must give to CHRIST JESUS that every person who does not work for the government but private industries so that we who are earning a living can help those who lack. Today, we must show the favor of GOD towards those who do not have. Not only should we share the salvation of the LORD GOD, but we are to offer our help which comes from the Holy GOD in the name of CHRIST JESUS. JESUS is a promise keeper. Today is the day that may be marked for someone who does not know the JESUS that we serve and are in a relationship with to see the CHRIST within us. Today should be the day that the cries of those who are lost and disturbed by their situation of lack are answered. Let them see that the GOD we worship is the One who guards and protects rather than the government. Today is the acceptable day that we pray asking the LORD for guidance and that the Holy Spirit is being heard in our spiritual ears to know what it is that we the church are to do for those who are without. Let people see through us that the GOD we worship is a merciful GOD giving HIM all the glory and praise when they thank us for helping and showing them the answer to all truth and HIS salvation. Today is the acceptable day that those who lack receive help because today is the day that GOD has heard their cries. We are to be seen as little JESUS walking around here on earth not just praying for people but actually doing what needs to be done. Show them that today is the acceptable and right time that salvation has heard their cries and is here to be a help. Today is their day that GOD is showing HIS favor because HE is hearing their cries and HE is arriving within us to help through HIS salvation. But don’t be amiss to share with them that today is the day to be saved in CHRIST JESUS.

In the name of JESUS let us go out and proclaim that today is the day which is acceptable to share with those who do not know JESUS to come and know HIM through their faith. Stop relying on New Year’s resolutions that resolve nothing because most don’t have the discipline to cease doing or the tenacity to persevere to that which they want to achieve. Some of us may have the ability to hire those who are dealing with this ridiculous furlough of the government initiated by the president of the USA. And, others may have a side hustle in selling products that generate income, share that with others. We can’t make anyone receive what we have to offer but at least we invited those who are in need to receive from GOD through our efforts. Let us be the blessing they are looking for. Let us be the help they need. Because today is the acceptable day to show the blessings, favor, grace, love, and mercy of our Savior. Give GOD all the glory.
