Dead/Death

Movie_i_see_dead_people-769472 We all see dead people and don’t know it.

We don’t like death and that’s a good thing because it’s the hard wiring that we all have but don’t understand that we were never created to die. However, we are dead, spiritually speaking because we are born into this world with a void of grace. We all are under the power of sin once we are born. Much like the flesh decays with age and after the denial of animation and oxygen, we are also decayed in grace. We don’t have a spiritual life which produces good works in CHRIST JESUS. We begin our life with a corrupt nature which is not from a spiritual life or gracious principle but dead works. We are born into this world being perpetually separated from our Creator and Savior GOD with a sentence of eternal torment which is the second death pending in our lives. When we do not have a living spirit within us we are separated or alienated from GOD our Savior and our heavenly FATHER. This is because we are under the dominion of sin and destitute of grace which is the divine life but instead living a spiritual death unknowingly. However, we have been given the opportunity to escape this death and pass from death to a glorious life and one of the outward examples is the proof that we love our spiritual brothers and sisters in CHRIST JESUS.

As I wrote, in the beginning, we don’t like death yet, we all speak death daily. We may think not so but if our words are not filled with godliness then we are speaking death not only to others but ourselves as well. We are either speaking death or we are speaking life and in many cases, we bring them forth with the same unruly tongue. We bless and we curse with our words. Here are some examples. Go to h3//; you make me s/ck; I h@te you; I have a cold, the flu, whatever body ache we feel; I’m broke; I suffer from anxiety, depression, oppression, or anger. I’m doing good; I love you or like you; I’m too blessed to be stressed. The list can go on and on but I’m certain you are catching on. None of those negative words line up with the words we are taught to speak in CHRIST JESUS, in fact, they are all opposite of what we should speak to ourselves and others. Our minds are to be transformed by the Word of GOD and this is a daily activity, not just a onetime occurrence. We are to practice not speaking death and begin to speak life which is filled with encouragement, inspiration, joy, and peace. Because everything that we speak comes into existence. Most of us are familiar with the story of the prodigal son but most of us never get the message that we too are all prodigals. That is until we come to JESUS and presented back to the FATHER. My suggestion to everyone is that if you are telling others that you found GOD or you found JESUS you need to cease because you don’t understand what it is that you are saying. GOD the heavenly FATHER who is our Creator and HIS beloved SON JESUS have never been lost but we have or are. JESUS who is the Good Shepard is the One who comes looking for us. There are many HE has found and they continue to turn walk away and close their ears to HIS Words. And there are much more HE has found and they began to walk away with HIM and continue to listen to HIS Words. When we come to JESUS there is much merriment in heaven for each and every one of us and from that moment we are given to eat the bread of life.

I have another suggestion, instead of waiting to take communion when we celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of CHRIST JESUS. Why not purchase the same communion feast that is passed out in our worship service from our local Christian Bookstore, if you think that it’s too costly then purchase some grape juice and take a piece of bread or cracker and use this. Taking communion is what we do when we think about what JESUS body went through so that we do not have to suffer everything that HE suffered in HIS flesh. And taking the juice is when we think about how HIS blood washes us and makes us whiter than snow from sin. Also, share with others and never stand by when others do not believe that once dead there is nothing after that. CHRIST JESUS rose from the dead and so will we. Encourage those that are experiencing grief due to the death of a loved one. And correct them when it is said that GOD took for whatever silly reason. Let me set the record straight GOD has only ever taken two men and they have never seen death. Their names are Enoch and Elijah. Everyone else died for several reasons. However, while we still have breath in our bodies we can come to know with assurance when CHRIST JESUS lives in us and we live in CHRIST JESUS that we are no longer counted as dead as we once were. Salvation in CHRIST JESUS takes away sin and removes death. But, CHRISTians still die. CHRISTians as we all must die an earthly death, however, before being transformed from unrighteousness into righteousness our spirit man was non-existent so we were dead, alienated from GOD. But through the washing in the blood of CHRIST JESUS and the breath of life that HE placed within us, we have been made alive in CHRIST JESUS. Without CHRIST JESUS it is impossible to be alive.

So, in essence, those who are blood washed in CHRIST JESUS don’t die as we know death to be and we should not proclaim that a CHRISTian is dead. When we have witnessed the life and words of one who is the example of the embodiment of CHRIST JESUS we must proclaim that the individual is asleep waiting for the return of CHRIST JESUS. Because those who are in CHRIST JESUS will rise and ascend into heaven with HIM and whatever the cause that attributed to the death there will be nothing that will be tagging along because we will have a brand new body which will be glorified in CHRIST JESUS.

So in closing take inventory of yourself instead of others. Are you continually with willingness living your life as one who is any of the following?

  1. Fearful/cowardly
  2. Mean/abominable
  3. Prideful/contemptible
  4. Rejection of CHRIST JESUS / unbelieving, faithless
  5. Murderer/anger
  6. Sexually immoral/lewd, adultery, fornication, pornography, masturbation
  7. Idolaters/occult, horoscopes, drug & alcohol use to inebriate the blood and mind and anyone or anything in the place where CHRIST JESUS should be which is first place
  8. Liars/exaggerate, make excuse

If we can answer yes to any of the above you have either not given every area of your life over to CHRIST JESUS or you do not belong to CHRIST JESUS. Those who do not belong to HIM the Word of GOD informs us that they will suffer the second death because they died in their sins so the proclamation when we die to be known as dead is true. Those who die in sin will descend into the bowels of hell and will have their part in the lake of fire which blazes with brimstone and fire.

Debtors

Debtor_and_Creditor_Workout_2

In many cases, the thought of being in debt to someone usually has finances attached to it. However, when JESUS left us the blueprint, not the prayer as many believe that it is but the instructions of how we are to pray as recorded in Matthew 6:9-13. HE instructed us to forgive those who have wronged us. Why would JESUS instruct us to forgive everyone who has wronged us? Because the FATHER our Creator has forgiven us of our obligation to do and say things. When JESUS died on the cross and pronounced the word “finished” it was complete to perfection. Our account was placed on HIM and removed from us. We cannot be charged with the crime of sin ever again. We should discontinue having a conscience of sin which leads to guilt, shame, and remembrance of the things we did which went against the Word of GOD. And allow ourselves to focus on the righteousness of CHRIST JESUS and HIS faith. But we will never be able to focus on CHRIST JESUS if HE does not reside within us. Many people confess the knowledge that JESUS has forgiven them but most do not believe it to be so. If you are in debt and have ever paid a debt off you know what a load that is off your shoulders. You can breathe, you feel as though a great weight has been lifted from you. It’s no different from what JESUS CHRIST has done for us on the cross. HE paid our debt in full, HE took each and every curse, disease (dis-ease), and illness known and unknown from us. We are no longer under the curse to be judged by the FATHER. But we must believe, trust and have faith that CHRIST JESUS did those things for us. CHRIST JESUS rose from the grave in victory so that we too can rise from our sleep that long slumber awaiting HIS return.

To know by faith in CHRIST JESUS that we are forgiven the debt of sin that we are born into and to know that is to have faith that we are forever forgiven even when we slip and fall to do a sinful thing. Places us in the knowledge of belief because of our faith in CHRIST JESUS that we are not sinners but the righteousness of GOD in CHRIST JESUS. The only debt that we must be conscious of is to love our brothers and sister in the faith of CHRIST JESUS. If we don’t love our heavenly, spiritual siblings we can’t love GOD our FATHER and HIS beloved SON JESUS. People will do things or say things that will be offensive to all of us and words especially are the most difficult to forget. I hate the saying that every child learns “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”. Many heal from physical abuse but it takes CHRIST JESUS to deliver us from the scars of emotional and mental abuse. When someone has offended us and we can’t bear to hear the debtor’s name, if we see them outside we cross the street or duck inside of a building and lastly if we are attending any type of event and we see the debtor and we feel the pangs of uneasiness. Then know that we are holding the debtor accountable for what he or she has done or said and how it causes us to feel. We must follow the example of CHRIST JESUS and leave the debt with HIM. Relax and be forgiving, pardon everyone who owes you a debt and give up all negative mental thoughts and feelings toward others. After all if we were to really give it some thought about who we were (that is if we have been blood washed), what we have done to others as well as said but most of all being in debt to the FATHER before we came to HIM. We will see that we don’t have a right to hold the debts of others against them because we have been set free from all our debts and the resentment that we should have from the FATHER we no longer have.

Deceive / Deceitful

deceive

It’s an awful thing to have anyone deceive another. Because of the belief and trust that we place on what another tells us we become mislead in our mind. When we are deceived we begin to error due to the deception that we took by faith into our heart. We need to have the wisdom of GOD which is the Holy Spirit within us so that we will hear His voice when someone tells us or we read something that is laced in being a false accusation, claim or statement because it’s deception. We all must visit a physician due to an ache, discomfort or illness. And though it is true that via science the physician can see that we have a germ, or whatever they may see that will give us a discomfort or illness of the body. But that does not mean that we have to take ownership of the ailment. A diagnostic report is simply the characteristic of the nature of a disease. If we belong to CHRIST JESUS we should know that HE took that diagnosis upon HIMself two-thousand eight-teen years ago. We must stand on the promises of GOD which pertain to our health, do not invite the ache, germ, or discomfort of the illness to take up residence within you. I did not mean to write anything about health but I believe since the Holy Spirit had me to touch on that, it must be for someone who reads this blog. We must not allow anyone to cause us to disbelieve the truth and all truth is found in CHRIST JESUS not in what we can associate with because of our five senses. Do not allow anyone or anything to impose and delude us from what the Bible informs us with promise. Read Matt. 24:4. Also, be careful not to become prideful or ask the FATHER to show you if you have pride residing within you. We all are guilty of believing or saying that we do not do or say a thing and believe because we do not do or say something that we witness in others that we have no sin. Allow me to demonstrate at least two facts.

  • Anyone who has not come to the FATHER knowing and realizing that he/she is a sinner has deceived themselves into believing the lie satan has given to you.
  • Anyone who is blood washed in the blood of CHRIST JESUS and now look down on others because of their behavior. Deceives themselves of not having pride within them. Read 1 John 1:1.

Never delude anyone into deception, check out the facts through the truth in CHRIST JESUS. Wait to hear HIS voice, most often than not HE will have the Holy Spirit speak to us in wisdom. When we delude the truth we cheat ourselves and others. We do not want to become one that cut ourselves and others off from the expectation that we all should desire to receive from the FATHER. Never cause another to become frustrated or disappointed because you are guilty of robbing them of what it is they have placed their hope in.

It’s a wonderful thing to be educated in the things of this world. However, it’s not a good thing to rely on the wisdom of this world. Wisdom belongs to GOD alone and only those who ask HIM will obtain true wisdom in the Holy Ghost/Spirit. We only fool ourselves into believing that we are wise because of what we can see, taste, touch, smell and hear. That type of wisdom comes from the world. Godly wisdom will have us to discard the wisdom of this world by the knowledge we receive from our senses and education. Walk by faith and not by sight. Once we recognize that the wisdom we thought we had a hold of is dull when compared to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit we will see that the world’s wisdom is foolish and stupid. Walk by faith and not by sight. The world’s wisdom comes from experience whereas true wisdom comes with true learning and scholarship which causes us to be truly wise. Walk by faith and not by sight. With worldly wisdom, we become conceited in our beliefs. Yet, when we turn ourselves entirely over to the FATHER through CHRIST JESUS we turn away from all types of evil.

I totally hate excuses, when I hear excuses the Holy Spirit will tell me that what I’m hearing is a lie. Excuses will delude the truth and are groundless because of the sin of lying. Excuses will more so come from those who are rebellious and disobedient to the Word of GOD because they are empty of HIS being.

Each and every human need CHRIST JESUS because each and every human is born into this world with a deceitful and mortally sick heart. None of us need to be taught how to be corrupt and perverse, it is our nature. We do however need to be taught the Word of GOD how to be righteous in CHRIST JESUS. Our flesh nature will always be in combat with our spiritual nature once we come to JESUS the CHRIST. In CHRIST JESUS we will still have the capability to think of ways to deceive but it’s not our natural flesh mind that we must adhere to. It’s our spirit man that we must listen to because our orders come from heaven. Someone once told me many years ago that he keeps having thoughts to rob people. I said to him, you are saved which means that you no longer belong to satan. Don’t listen to any voice that instructs you to do anything against the FATHER through CHRIST JESUS. Always do the opposite. Know that when we come to CHRIST JESUS we will receive a new DNA transformation, our blood, heart, and mind will be transformed into the will of GOD. This is why it so important for us to be in constant communication with the FATHER. This can only happen when we speak with HIM and listen to HIS reply, read HIS Word and act on what the Word informs us to do and to say. Make truth a major part of our lives. Yet, those that refuse to hear the truth because deception has been deceived their ears, eyes, and heart will die the death of judgment, hell and the lake of fire.

Those who walk in the wisdom of the Holy Spirit because all truth resides within them have already escaped being deceived by the enemy.
