DO NOT READ THIS ARTICLE IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH!
STEP ONE: Today, I’ve got some really good spiritual food for you! Here’s the first thought – EAT THE WHOLE ROLL! Come and eat at the Lord’s table, HIS HOLY WORD! If you do this, you will begin to see HIM! HE IS AWESOME!
STEP TWO: Start talking and asking questions of the LORD and He will answer you. Tell Him you have messed up so badly that you cannot stand it any longer! REPENT! Do this from the bottom of your heart and soul! You’ll probably cry a lot (depending upon the debts you owe to the LORD). This is no easy matter, but you have to withdraw from all of your pals, buddies, and girlfriends.
STEP THREE: Have faith in the LORD! He that comes to JESUS must first believe that He is the Son of God and a diligent rewarder to those who believe in HIM. Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Read Hebrews Chapter 13 for a quick review of those who believed in the Lord. It will blow your mind! You think you’ve got problems. Well honey, you aint seen nothing yet!
STEP FOUR: Make an about face and turn from your wicked ways. Don’t be like an old dog that goes back to his vomit and eats it! You’ve got to GET RID OF THE DEAD WEIGHT AND TOXIC PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE! The mythology about cats having nine lives has never been proven! You aint no cat and you ain’t got nine lives to live!
If you’ve done Steps One to Three, the LORD has already forgiven you and HE is working on the inside of you! Now you have a little outward work to do! ARE YOU READY!
a) Get rid of the people who keep you embedded in SIN! You don’t need them in your life. You don’t need no junk between you and the LORD! GOD IS JEALOUS! Trust me, He will remove and breakdown all your demi-gods. Ever wonder why your relationships don’t work. One minute you can trust your so-called friend (lover, pal, girlfriend, boyfriend, associate) and the next minute they are unfaithful (behind your back)!
b) Get rid of the lusts of the flesh, cravings, pornography, and the wild imaginations of your heart, soul, and mind! Grabe a hold of this wildcard! You may be stuck in an unhappy marriage or relationship that is boring and uneventual! Can you put your feelings aside for now? Yes we all change with age (skinny people get fat and fat people get skinny; bulges start to show; teeth fall out; hair lines thin; people even bald early in life; feet get flat; knees buckle, and so on). YOU AIN’T GOING TO LOOK FINE AS WINE FOR EVER EITHER BECAUSE IT JUST AINT NATURAL!
Here is what the LORD said to the children of Israel,
“And the Lord spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel and say unto them, When ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan; Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and DESTROY ALL THEIR PICTURES (PORNOGRAPHY), and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places…But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell. Moreover, it shall come to pass that I shall do unto you as I thought to do unto them.”
(1) You’ve got to cross over out of your comfort zone (the children of Israel left Egypt, crossed the Red Sea and the River Jordan, and entered into the Promised Land). Trust me! That journey was not easy and they were on foot! They weren’t riding in luxury vehicles and there were no Quick Stops, Waffle Houses, IHops, or Motel 6’s along the way! In other words, they had to get out of Dodge (Egypt) with the clothes on their backs and the gifts ironically given them by their enemies, the Egyptians. You’ve got to get up out of your comfortable mess! If you are living with people (and its not your personal property) then get out and find some other SAFE place to stay!
(2) If you have personal property and you’re living with dead weight and toxic people, politely, order them to get out. God told the children of Israel, “Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you…” That means, get rid of the unwanted habitants in your life and tell them to habitae else where. Exercise your God-given rights!
(3) God told the children of Israel, “…destroy all their pictures (pornography), molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places.”
(a) “…destroy all pictures (pornography), and molten images…” If you are sincere with God, then, get rid of your pornography and your collection of pictures (the ones you have stashed away in the garage, attic, closet, hidden suitcase, trunk of your car, and under your bed). You don’t need to look at other folks breasts and butts to get turned on and high! THATS BEING TRASHY! If you are a man, then, you know the male anatomy. Likewise, if you are a woman, then, you know the female anatomy. If you are that facinated with human anatomy you should purchase a book on the subject. Its more educational, sanitary, and healthier to read and understand about the anatomy of the body (made by God) than to examine every Tom, Dick, Harry, Marsha, Susan, Yvette, and so on and so on! Throw all of your molten images (demi-gods), sex toys, sexy kitten straps, magazines of stags and sex pots, and all the like in the trash can! Bundle up that junk (put it in a concealed bag) and throw it in the garbage. Don’t even look back at it! Imagine, you could have a stroke (or fall out or whatever) using that junk and a 911 team may come to the rescue and document their findings! YOU WILL HAVE A HARD TIME LIVING IT DOWN! Infact, pornography and trashy pictures are keeping you in bondage! GOD IS JEALOUS OF YOU!
(b) “..pluck down your high places…” You know yourself better than anyone else (except the LORD). Tear down the high places in your life. This means if you are self-anointed, then, get rid of your ointment! Don’t think of yourself more highly than you should! GET RID OF EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE THAT IS NOT LIKE THE LORD!
(4) GOD’S WARNING: “But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you…those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land where in ye dwell…” What is God saying? If you don’t get rid of the dead weight and toxic people in your life, you are compromising your Jerusalem! You will never be at peace because they will vex you in your own dwelling! You’ll go to bed at night vexed, you’ll get up vexed, you’ll go to school, work, or to the movies vexed! You will be miserable!
(5) If you fail to do all of the above, God said, “Moreover, it shall come to pass that I shall do unto you as I thought to do unto them.”
It is your choice! You are free, grown, white, black, red, or yellow and you may be over 21 years of age or under 21. You still must answer to the LORD GOD!
My prayer for you is to watch and pray for the adversary is roaming to and fro all over the earth seeking whom he may devour! If the lion, tiger, or bear (including the sharks in the sea) prey upon you, there is a chance you may not escape, break away, or be rescued! HOW ARE YOU GOING DOWN?
Yours in Christ JESUS,
