Wickedness and God’s Judgment

Leave a comment

 

wickedness 1

 

Genesis 6:5
Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great upon the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was altogether evil all the time. At the time of Noah every person except for Noah and his family had wickedness in their heart. That is not the case today…but there is a lot of wickedness and sinfulness on this earth right now. God is NOT a fan of this kind of behavior.

 
Romans 1:28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. This scripture was taking about sexual sins but there is a lot of that going on in today’s world.

GOD AIN’T PLAYIN’ WITH ANYBODY!

God don’t play!
Folk’s betta stop changin’ up His word!
Stop watering down the bible!
Changing laws that go against God’s word!
Stop disobeying God!
Repentant for your wrong doings!
Stop making your own plans!

 
God is love but………..Because of who He is….pure and holy….He demands that ALL…EVERYONE bow to His power and authority or else! He gives plenty of mercy and grace…but when you cross the line that he set up…then justice will be served whether you think it’s fair or not. God’s world…God’s rules!!!

 
You don’t have to follow if you don’t want to but be warned…there will be a price to pay. Jesus paid a very high price so that you can be right with His Father. But if you do things your way you will pay a very high price for your rebelliousness.

Many people think that God is mean and sadistic! They think this is not the way a loving God should act. You can say what you want to about His rules. God is not moved by how you feel about Him. The people who think God is horrible when something bad happens is a person who doesn’t understand or know who God really is.

 
You learn who God is by 4 things:
1. The bible
2. The holy Spirit
3. Prayer
4. Trials and victories

 
Psalms 33:8 Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!

 
You have to “get God”. When you get Him you love Him just because of who He is. This doesn’t mean you understand His ways…it just means you know that He is set apart from anything in your realm of normal. You understand that God is supernatural. You understand that He has made provisions to take care of you here on earth and after your death. After accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior you have built in assistance by means of the Holy Spirit. You are good to go!

 

This scripture verse really moves me to tears for those who go against God’s word or for those who are following a sinful lifestyle…….It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:31 other versions use the words terrifying and fearful. GOD DOES NOT PUT UP WITH SIN!!!! When people go against God we all suffer for it. God’s children also suffer in calamities.

 
So the big controversial question is….Has the increase in catastrophes in the past several years have anything to do with God’s judgment on mankind?  I do know that humanity’s  rejection of Jesus Christ and  living wickedly is NOT helping our situation. I know from the following scripture that God predicted these things will happen:   2 Timothy 3:1-5 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. We are experiencing a decline in morality which can lead to judgement from the power that be.  That be…God.  God have mercy on us!
So what now? What do we do? We are all at risk at being caught up in the cross fire. But don’t fear, live a righteous life, stay prayed up and know your bible. Be careful, wise and alert. Do what you can to keep you and your family safe. This is the big thing for me….I feel God is telling me to do what He’s asked me to do which is to build His kingdom by spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and making disciples. I must also keep my eyes on Jesus and stay focused!

 
We all are seeing an escalation of really horrible catastrophes and we will see much more in the days, weeks and years to come. We know that the whole creation has been groaning like the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Romans 8:22. As labor progresses the pain gets worse. The planet earth is in distress with all the earthquake, fires, floods, tsunamis, volcanos, mudslides, sink holes and tornados. Man is plagued with illnesses, extreme wickedness and mental deterioration.

 
It has been so surreal to watch the news now that I feel numb because things are happening so often. It’s not shocking anymore sadly… it’s almost expected. It has caused me to pray much more and to stay real close to God. This is the new normal now. This old hymn really says it all:

 
Turn your eyes upon Jesus
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

 
Refrain:
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

 
Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
O’er us sin no more hath dominion—For more than conqu’rors we are!
His Word shall not fail you—He promised;

 

Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!

The 10 Second Prayer

3 Comments

 

the 10 second prayer 1

My Lord…I don’t have much time…can you please forgive me and save my soul?

Do you know what happens to you when you think you’re going to meet you’re maker in the next few seconds? I know because it happened to me once. I was so sick and I felt myself fading. Even though I was already saved when this happened to me years ago, I still wanted to make sure that I was clean inside before I saw God. Through my tears in that sacred moment I asked God to forgive me of anything I had ever done. My mother in law who had to be bought back to life with the paddles told me she had the same reaction to facing possible death.

 
Ephesians 5:27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. We have to be holy and blameless in order to see God. The Holy Spirit in us helps us with seeking obtain holiness.
Jesus died on the cross so He could make this available for us: Jude 1:24 To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—

 
I’m telling you when you feel you are about to leave this world…a unique feeling comes over you in that special moment in your life. You feel that your physical condition is so severe that you think to yourself…this is it. You become keenly aware of your soul and where it’s going. The fear of seeing our powerful and mighty Father God comes over you. You feel that you don’t want your heart to be dirty. The reality of death is so very real to you in that moment. After I asked the Lord to forgive me, I had a unique sense of peace. I leaned back in my chair and waited for death to come, but that was not the day I was going to die. I will never forget that few minutes of my life.

 
From that near death experience I learn the importance of needing to be clean inside in order to see God. I know how to be forgiven in just seconds. A person may only have minutes and maybe a few hours like the thief on the cross to make a decision for accepting Jesus into their life. Jesus said to that thief on the cross “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.” At that point in that man’s life, I’m sure Jesus words were music to his ears and great news for his soul.

 
BUT WHAT IF YOU DIE INSTANTLY?

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. That is it for you! No time to repent! You die spiritually for eternity! God never wanted that to happen to His creations! The Holy Spirit has been trying to contact you your whole life to get you to open your heart and mind to accept Jesus sacrifice for your original sin. This is so that you could be presented before His very Holy Father God. There is no other way to God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
In my near death experience, I had already accepted Jesus to be my Savior. But when the reality that I might be leaving this life became real to me… I felt the presence of God in those moments and I felt an awareness of my own soul like never before. I felt God’s perfection and I felt my own imperfection and humanity. There was a distinct difference in that moment. Imminent death is no joke!!!!

 
In our world today people are being plucked out of here so quickly that it’s scary. Tsunami’s, floods, hurricanes, tornados, volcanos, typhoons, lightning strikes, sinkholes, structure collapses, mass killings, fires, accidents, random attacks, bombings are coming so frequently that everyone knows something has changed and that tragedies have accelerated in our world. But scarier than any of these horrible things is what happens right after we die physically? It’s something that you want to make absolutely sure that you have the correct information.

 
Many people don’t believe in hell at all. Some people think that everyone who dies goes to heaven. How can one be sure about all this religious stuff? The universe and the planets didn’t just appear out of thin air. When you look up in the sky on a clear day and see the beautiful white puffy clouds and the blue sky and you know that just beyond that there is no oxygen and it’s black and cold. You have to ask yourself how is it possible that this planet is sustained like this and no other planets are in this solar system. It’s simply too amazing!!!!

 
I have a very rare and complex medical condition called Periodic Paralysis. It’s an autosomal dominant channelopathy disorder. It’s the movement of sodium and potassium ions from one side of the muscle membrane to the other creates an electrical current. For the muscles to work properly these ions must be kept in the correct ratio both inside and outside the cell. In periodic paralysis the ion channels fail to regulate the flow of ions properly when potassium levels in the blood fluctuate. The ratios of sodium and potassium inside and outside the cell become unbalanced. The muscle responds less when asked to move, which is felt as weakness. If the imbalance becomes pronounced the muscle quits responding at all, i.e. becomes paralyzed. Complicated huh?

 
The reason I share this is because it shows just how complex and unique the human body is. When I use too much energy, eat too much carbohydrates, get sick, take certain medications or skip a meal, my delicate metabolic balance goes awry and causes extreme weakness of any muscle in my body and can even cause paralysis and death. There are so many systems in the body and each one is run by a delicate balance and if something is a little off…bam! One being is responsible for this and He’s the creator of all life. God is responsible for designing our unbelievably complex bodies. (Adam, Eve and the satan are responsible for illnesses.)

 
So in God’s creative mind He decided to make humans and we would be very special to God over His other created beings. But because of His holiness and Him being so set apart from humans, He came up with a great plan to accomplish the ability to adopt us. He sent the 3rd person of His unique Godness. (yes I made up that word) Because of His love would for His Creations He humble Himself and become a lowly man. He ALLOWED Himself to be humiliated, tortured and eventually murdered so that we could live with Him FOREVER. Jesus did that so someone could say that 10 second prayer if they were unsaved needed to repent quickly!!!

 
Why did I become a Christian in the first place…what inspired me to believe in God? My parents were the ones who introduced me to the idea of God. Once I understood that there was a God I already felt that He was a part of my life but I kept Him on the outside. One day when I was a teenager I was watching Billy Graham on TV and I heard that I was a sinner and I learned just how much Jesus loved me. This message touched me so much that I understood the message, repent of my sins and accepted Jesus as my Savior. I strayed away from my Christianity as I grew into adulthood. Then In 1984 I became a committed Christian. Why? Because God had just given me the greatest miracle of my life. He healed me of totally of depression and suicidal attempts. It was a miraculous healing I am so grateful to God for healing my mind!

 
This blog is very long today because I am very concern about the tragic and fast rate that people are dying these days. Some may never even get to pray the 10 seconds because in one second they’re here and the next second they’re gone. They had NO opportunity to make sure that they made the RIGHT decision for their eternal life. I know I’m saved. I could keep my mouth shut and just die happy…but my loved ones, your loved ones need to hear the good news of the gospel!!! You only get one chance to get it right. Hebrew 9:27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,  After you die your decision is right there. People who don’t believe that Jesus is the way to heaven and people who don’t believe in any God at all get so angry when a Christian tries to share their faith. But why in the world would I endure their harsh words, criticism and sometime anger towards me. I don’t want to go through that…who would? But I do it because I really care others and Jesus asked me to share His good news with others.

 
If you’re saved…save others! Be a light that will be a beacon for other souls! Be salty so that others can taste and see that God is good! Let God use you! Be available for His service. There is NOTHING that we can give an almighty power being like God. But we can use ourselves to be a servant and let Him use us to build His kingdom. My heart wants to do this for Him. He’s done so much for me!!! He’s given me eternity. The least I can do for Him is to give Him my humble service.

Worshiping God With Your Hair or…

washing feet 2

 

 

I have two bible heroes. One is the dedicated and committed to God Enoch and the other washing feet 4is the woman who washed Jesus feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. I was thinking if I was able to physically be near Jesus what in the world would I be able to do with my short kinky hair? How could I possible dry off His feet with my kind of hair? I could do the tears but Jesus would have soggy feet! I know that if I was with Jesus I would just be kissing His feet so much so until they would have to pull me off of Him! Jesus would be hollaring…”SECURITY!” All kidding aside…how can I worship Jesus here and now and for the rest of my earthly life?

 

washing feet 3

These 3 scriptures says it all for me:
Romans 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship.

 
Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’

 
James 1:22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

Love God and worship Him like crazy!!!

Refuge in the Storm

3 Comments

My blog friend Tricia wrote a great blog today and I wanted to share it. God bless you!

Tricia's Journal Jots Blog

I don’t like going through difficulties, but I suppose I couldn’t know God as my refuge if I never went through a storm. Jesus, You are my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust (Psalm 91:12). Today I will trust You, God, as my refuge.

Psalm 139:9-10 “If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.”
Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Both verses NIV)
No matter where we are, God will guide us and hold onto us. He will strengthen and help us and hold us up. So why do I whine…

Is man really stupid?

stupid 3

You sure do!!!

 

Jeremiah 10:14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.

 
Brutish means…Insensible; stupid, Ignorant; uncivilized; untaught, savageness.

 

stupid 1
Men and women think they are smart. Toddlers go to pre-school, children go to elementary school, teens go to junior high and high school and adults go to college and beyond. Now they think they know a little something. They think they are now wise and clever. But compared to Gods knowledge man is …um…well…stupid. I didn’t say that…the bible expresses that. Stupid is a very rough word. When my kids were little I didn’t allow them to use that word. It’s hard to hear that the bible uses the word stupid in reference to mankind, but if that’s how God sees us then who am I to dispute God’s perception of our knowledge compared to His overall knowledge.

 
1 Corinthians 2:16 for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

 
So if the bible says that we are senseless even though we are educated…then if we make Jesus our Lord and Savior and have the mind of Christ then we can have supernatural wisdom pertaining to our lives and others. We will have spiritual knowledge through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. We will not fall for idols, witchcraft, and anything that is not pleasing to God. We wouldn’t be lead to follow things that are not His will for our lives.

 
Isaiah 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.
We know the unsaved don’t have the mind of Christ…and unfortunately even some of the Church doesn’t either.

 
Psalms 94:11The LORD knows the thoughts of man, that they are futile.

 
When you have a good relationship with the Lord and have knowledge from the bible, you will have a better chance of spiritual success. This is a great thought from Psalms 119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity (sin) have dominion over me.

 
Why am I talking about this at all? We humans think we know a great deal. We have figured many things out to advance our quality of life. We’ve figured out how to fly. We’ve built incredible things such as skyscrapers, bridges, computers, cars, phones, rocket ships and so much more. We also have developed amazing medical feats such as making a baby in a medical dish and cloning animals. Man is very smart. But in light of who God is man is stupid. God’s knowledge is so out of the realm of mans knowledge that it shouldn’t be spoken of in the same breath.

 
Knowing how smart God is should give us respect for who He is and we should be in great awe in His superiority and greatness. It makes what Jesus did on the cross so much more powerful because of God’s greatness reaching down to us to pull us up to Him and all that was motivated by pure love!. It makes God’s love for us sooooo much profoundly deeper. It should make our dependency on Him much more needed because of His incredible and perfect wisdom.

 
I bow down on my face before my Holy God in absolute awe!!! How dare I think I’m all that and a bag of chips before my God…the Holy God of all universes!!! If it wasn’t for the Holy Spirit inside of me guiding me and Jesus sacrificial act I would be nothing!!!

 
If Jesus has the fullness of God in Him and I’m abiding in Jesus then I can make it. But not on my own or with my own knowledge because I am stupid on my own! I’m blessed with Jesus though. I need Jesus, I need the Holy Spirit. I don’t want to run my life on my own. I have tried and fail miserably!!! Example, my husband and I tried to undo something that was good for us in the long run. We fought to do it and was so disappointed when it didn’t happen. Well years later it turned out that denial was the greatest blessing in our lives! When we figured this out we said to each other…”we were so stupid. We didn’t even know what was good for us!” But God knew!!!

 
We must humble ourselves before our incredible God and His all knowing all powerful knowledge and let Him guide His best for our lives. We should blindly trust God!!!!

 
We need to meditate on God’s superior wisdom and knowledge. It’s so far above ours that it makes dealing with our difficulties in life so much better knowing that He knows what’s best for us. You will pray harder because you know God has a perfect answer for your prayer request. We are indeed blessed. The bottom line here is… Don’t be….stupid!…“Put your trust in God!”.

 

stupid 4

No real power!!!  Just a man.  But not God who has all power!!!

Man made computers and they are very smart and can answer many questions and give lots of answers. But they cannot change a person life. They have no real power. Like in the wizard of Qz…the wizard had real no power. Jesus has ALL power! Get with Jesus! Repent! Humble yourself! You will be blessed!

That’s why you need Jesus!!!!

Abiding in Christ

4 Comments

abiding 2

(Hey ya’ll…it took me a long time to write this blog. It was for my own understanding of abiding and hopefully yours. I pray it brings you to a deeper understanding, joy and knowledge of how much Jesus has done for us so that we can abide in Him)

John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. (KJV)

Abiding is made possible in a person’s life post salvation only!

The meaning of abide: to remain, continue and stay with. To lodge, sojourn, and dwell with. To await, live and stand with.

Him in me and me in Him!    Him in me and me in Him!

Our abiding union with Jesus Christ is a very deep and profound relationship. There is nothing like it in the whole world. Who else’s god can actually live inside of them and can have such a unique relationship as to be so intertwined together?

Tanya Nemley’s interpretation of abiding: Accepting Jesus gift of salvation and attaching yourself to Jesus mentally and emotionally, never letting go of Him every day for the rest of your earthly life.

There are some people who say they have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior but they didn’t remain on the vine and were lost. They said the words with their mouth but in their heart they didn’t really hook up with their connection to Jesus. They had an empty conversion. Some people never connect to Jesus the vine. Those who have truly accepted Jesus Christ stay on the vine and they are abiding and are able to produce fruit.

Abiding is an ongoing process in order to stay on spiritual course!

This is done through your daily relationship with Jesus and your constant studying and obeying God’s word. Stay in the pocket with God. Don’t run ahead of God and don’t run behind. Stick very close which is abiding with Jesus. Don’t meet Him at church…be His church, be His mouth piece and be His kingdom builder. Allow the Holy Spirit to pour into your life which will help with the abiding. Imitate Jesus and be just like Him in all that you do and say.

Abiding in Jesus starts by:

1. Accepting the true vine “Jesus Christ”.
2. Staying on the true vine “Jesus Christ”.

Abiding in Christ is the essence of our whole Christ life.” Abiding is being so attached to the vine (Jesus) that we become a representation of who Jesus is to others and so proving to be true Christians.

There was a term from a movie that caught on around 2009 called “He’s just not that into you”. That means if you dated a man that he may not like you to much. If Jesus made a movie like that it would be called…”He’s so into you!” John 3:16 proves that. Isn’t it so cool that someone is so into you? But the ultimate abiding is that we are so into Him!

Abiding in Jesus is truly a symbiotic (a very close intermingling relationship) with God because of 3 things:

1. Jesus making this relationship possible.
2. The word of God being made real and alive in us.
3. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit living in us.

The benefits and results of abiding in Christ.

John 15:5-9 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

abiding 1

The benefits of abiding in Jesus Christ are enormous!

1. You will have eternal life!!!
2. You will be in God’s will.
3. You will produce a lot of fruit and be spiritually productive.
4. Your life will be blessed and you’ll have great Joy.
5. You will be spiritually strong.
6. Your life will glorify God.
7. You will be loved and be able to love others.
8. You will prove to Jesus that you are indeed His disciple.
9. You will have unspeakable joy!
10. You will be sustained and nourished by your attachment to the vine.
11. You will be obedient to the word of God and be able to keep God’s commandments
12. You will have a life that is complete in all that God has planned for you!
13. You can be connected to everyone else who is attached to the vine.
14. You will have someone who is sympathetic to our suffering because of His suffering.
15. You will be put right with God and have an instant connection with him.
16. You will have the Holy Spirit in you for your entire earthly life.
17. You will have a close friend and will never be alone.
18. You will always have hope and can face anything in your life.
19. You will have power because of His name.
20. You will have a Shepherd and protector.
21. You will be clean and Jesus can present you to God on day.                                          22. You will have peace of mind and a calmness in your spirit.

 

You will have peace and calmness

Jesus went to the cross so that He would have the ability to abide in me and that I also will have the ability to abide in Him. I have accepted His gift. So now that Jesus has set everything up for my spiritual success…I need to stay as close as I can with Him to be successful in Him. I said this before but it needs repeating… “Abiding in Christ is the essence of our whole Christ life.”

How do you abide in Christ?

1. I need to be in God’s presence on and off all day long. I personally do this through prayer, singing, bible study, praying, praising God, listening to sermons or teachings throughout my day, talking to family and friends about Jesus, blogging about God and thinking about God constantly.

2. Pray continually means to talk to God all the time. It says in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 To pray continually.

3. Keep studying, applying and obeying to what’s written in the bible.

4. Loving other people.

I do abide in the Lord but I have to be honest and admit that there are times that I have kicked God to the curb or I have pulled away from the vine. As I have gotten older and more mature in my faith I don’t do this as much anymore. Kicking God to the curb is a harsh statement to make… but it’s what happens in our lives when we let obstacles and distractions interfere with our ongoing relationship with God. Some distractions are, busyness, illness, jobs, even ministry, and a host of other things can get our minds off of God. We can sometimes put God on the back burner too. This disconnect from God can weaken our walk with God. When we start to again abide steadily with Jesus we can get ourselves back on track.

If we don’t abide in Christ the bible says we really have nothing. This means if we are not connected to the vine and have not accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior we as unsaved humans are dried up, shriveled up and will be gathered up and put into the fire and burned. YIKES!!! Not abiding in Jesus is dangerous and spiritually and eternally life threatening.

My dad grows a garden every year. This year he tried to grow corn. He planted a lot of it and it looked like it was doing well. The stalks were green and tall but when it came time to produce corn the cobs were very small and inedible. He also had some tomatoes that fell of the vines and just rotted and were also inedible. This is a fact….anything that doesn’t cling, stay or remain on the vine will not be sustained enough to produce a crop. It will be useless and eventually destroyed. As Christian can be affected by not staying close enough to the vine. We can become weak in our faith. We will not lose our salvation because the bible promises us in His word that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. (Romans 8:31-39)

The bottom line here is that if you’re not saved and you are not attached to the vine which is Jesus you are eternally lost. You will not get into heaven. If you are saved then you need to stay and remain close to God for your spiritual growth. Every soul born is NOT attached to the vine. Every person will have an opportunity to make the choice to be able to abide with Jesus. He did so much to make this possible. I hope this blog has opened your eyes to keeping your connection to Jesus closer now that you understand that He is truly the strength of your life. May Jesus bless you and keep you in His loving care…amen.

abiding best
