Worldwide News: “CUT OUT the DRY ROT!”

The BIBLE states,  “Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the HOLY GHOST: as your fathers did, so do ye…”   (Acts 7:51)   “…for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. REPENT therefore of this thy wickedness and pray to God…Thou art in the gall of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity…”    (Acts 8:21b-22)

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

It is time for all of us to self-examine ourselves.  As we grow older, we should not be acting like juveniles.  After a certain age, you cannot hang out old night partying…come in a 3:00 AM…get up at 7:00 AM to go to work.  In time, drinking, smoking, and partying (and other stuff) will take its toll on the body.  One cannot keep up this image!  There is nothing worse than seeing an old man or woman out at the clubs tap dancing on the disco floor!  What do you think?

In the above lesson, Apostle Luke (the Physician) is speaking as a spiritual doctor.  You see, many of our bodily and mental ailments come from our poor spiritual diets.  Like the Children of Israel (who begged Aaron to make them a molten calf and they desired the sweets of Egypt),  we want it our way.  If,  GOD  does not immediately answer our prayers and requests, we go down other avenues, jump jobs, jump relationships, jump cities and states, dump on other people, point fingers, abandon the ship and crew, and run away (only to run smack into a bigger booger-bear).

As the title states, we must “CUT OUT the DRY ROT!” which means to take off everything that is not like JESUS (in order to run this race)!   Have you ever examined a piece of wood that’s been attacked by bacteria or fungi?  The wood turns blacker than black and it shrivels up!  It is no good and it must be cut out and replaced!  That’s what sin does to us, the inner and outer man is broken down and alienated from the Lord GOD.  Many times, the person is disfigured, ages quicker, takes on other faulty traits and characteristics to the point that he or she is unrecognizable. Have you ever come across a friend (from the past) and he is totally changed for the worse? Perhaps, he is 35 years old but he looks like a 70 year old person.  Inevitably, you walk away (asking within yourself), “What in the world happened to him?”   Do you know that the Lord GOD can turn back the clock-of-time and make you look younger, healthier, and happier than ever?

Have a Blessed Day!

 

 

Worldwide News: “A PLACE Where There is no more DEATH!”

The BIBLE states,    “Blessed are they that do His commandments that they may have the right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city…”    (Revelation 22:14)   Is there really   “A PLACE Where There is no more DEATH!”    Yes, there is a place being prepared right now for God’s people,  New Jerusalem! 

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

Currently there is no place on this Earth free of sickness, sin, and death.   For these reasons, Jesus came to seek, to save, and to give you a right to everlasting life (if you want it).  However,  Jesus is  the key to everlasting life and you can’t get in without the key!  There is a song which states, “I searched all over still can’t find no body, nobody greater, no body greater than Jesus!” 

I am talking to somebody out there who is extremely troubled because you do not feel worthy of salvation.  In fact, you are wondering,   “Can the Lord forgive and save me? I did wrong last week, last year, 10 years ago, 20 years ago, and I’m still doing wrong but I want to stop the madness…”   The answer is  YES HE WILL DO BOTH…YOU ONLY HAVE TO REPENT, HUMBLE YOURSELF, AND TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS!   We all have issues but these issues (errors or whatever) can be forgiven, covered, erased, and thrown into the Sea of Forgetfulness through the Blood of Jesus.   F.Y.I.  God cannot see your mistakes thru the Blood of Jesus!  So, drench and hide yourself in the Lamb’s Blood!  

Clearly, the WORD states,He that is unjust, let him be unjust still:  and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still:  and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still:  and he that is holy, let him be holy still.”   (Rev. 22:11)   I do not have to break this down to you as you fully understand what the Spirit is saying to humanity.  However, I will say this – the Angel of Death is collecting souls every day, every hour, and every minute.   While there is time, turn from your ungodly ways, seek the Lord’s face,  and REPENT!

Have a Blessed Day!

Worldwide News: “Israel’s PATRIARCHS did not use Viagra!”

The BIBLE states,  “Now the Lord had said unto Abraham,  Get thee out of thy country,  and from thy kindred,  and from thy father’s house,  unto a land that I will show thee…And I will make of thee a great nation and I will bless thee, and make thy name great;  and thou shall be a blessing.  And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee;  and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”    (Genesis 12:1-3)   “Father ABRAHAM did not use V-i-a-g-r-a  because he trusted in the Lord GOD!

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

Like the Patriarch Abraham, life is one big test and it seems to be getting worse and worse!  Some of you may say, “Well Viagra and enhancement pills was not on the market in Old Abe’s time (including Isaac and Jacob).   As you know,  the Lord GOD called Old Abe when he was 75 years old.  Who in their right mind can launch out into that deep of faith looking to be a first time Father or Mother at 75 to 100 years old?  God said, “Leave your Daddy’s house…I‘m gonna bless ya and make you the Father of Nations…”   

However, the ancients used many tricks to conceive and to attract people  (just as modern folks do).  For instance, Leah (Rachel’s sister) who was the second wife to the Patriarch Jacob used mandrakes (a plant that her son Reuben found in the fields) as a  love potion  to seduce her husband.  You see,  Jacob’s favorite wife was Rachel but he was tricked into marrying Leah (who was a plain woman..some say she was bow-legged and cross-eyed).  On the wedding night, they got Jacob so drunk he didn’t even know where to spit!  The next day, he woke up next to Leah!   So, Leah had to use a little hocus- pocus to attract Jacob!  One time, Rachel asked Leah, “Give me, I pray thee, of thy son’s mandrakes…Therefore, he (Jacob) shall lie with thee to night for thy son’s mandrakes…and Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I have hired thee with my son’s mandrakes.  And he lay with her that night.”   (Genesis 20:14-16)

WHAT’S THE POINT?   U  do not need Viagra or hocus-pocus to get through life!   If the Lord GOD is calling you, HE WILL PROVIDE FOR YOU!   If the Lord GOD is testing you,  HE WILL MAKE A WAY FOR YOU TO PASS THE TEST!   If the Lord GOD is for you, HE IS MORE THAT THE WHOLE WORLD AGAINST YOU! No weapon formed against you will prosper!  This means that no device (whether it is a gun, plot, ditch, sling shot, or plastic fork) designed to hurt or kill you will prosper. Surely, you are not superman or superwoman because you are human (as all humans bleed);  but your opponent(s) will not go unpunished.   Inevitably, GOD’S justice and wrath will prevail.

Have a Blessed Day!

Worldwide News: “Are U in a FRANKEN-STORM?”

The BIBLE states,  “Why are ye so fearful?   How is it that ye have no faith?”    (Mark 4:41)   Is  your lack of faith because of the problems in your life that you brought on?    “Are U in a FRANKEN-STORM?”

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

We all are highly influenced by the World and other people.   As  GOD’S Word states,   “…the cares of this World and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in  choke the Word,  and it becomes unfruitful.”   (Mark 4: 19)   Whether you are rich or poor, you are included in this subset.

In the Gospel of St. Mark 4,  JESUS is teaching Parables to the Disciples and to the people.   Oddly enough,  JESUS entered into a ship and sat in the  sea (which represents humanity).   As JESUS began the lesson, HIS first Word was hearken (in other words listen to  Me).  Instead of listening to the LORD, we read our astrology signs, we go to palm readers, and we practice witch craft or voodoo.  If we do not get our way, we force our way and dig ditches for others (as they dig them for us).  We don’t lay down our weapons to trust in the LORD.   No Way!  We can think and we can add!  So, we take matters into our own hands.

If you are in a  Franken-storm  or  blizzard,  you must prepare yourself and yours!   This is what you’ve got to do:  (1Get in the ship with JESUS as this is the only way to ride out the waves.  (2)  Stay on board and do not get out of the ship as your only safety is on board.  (3Don’t look back at the things left behind.  Go forward with Jesus as you may get emotional and start whining.  Remember the Exodus, the Israelites complained against Moses because they wanted to go back to Egypt.  (4)  Sit at Jesus’ feet and learn from His teachings.  Do not do as;  U see and perceive because your perception is inaccurate… U hear but really you hear what you want too…U understand but your understanding is biased.  (5)  When the lessons are completed, Jesus will tell you its time to launch out into the deep.

Have a Blessed Day!

 

Worldwide News: “Do U Feel UNSALVAGEABLE?”

 

The BIBLE states, “Jesus said, unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.  Believest thou this?    (John 11:25-26)    Do U Feel UNSALVAGEABLE?   Well, read on about Lazarus’ life because he was DEAD…  

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

This message is for those of you who feel beyond help (ruined and undone) because of one reason or another. Everyone is not the same as some people grew up in happy homes (and some did not) while others were adopted (or left in orphanages).  Don’t you feel bad because you did not have a happy home as some of the children who grew up in so-called happy homes were not as happy as you think!  There are just as many disfunctional or broken families as there are functional families.  By the way,  “functional”   does not mean perfect!

Naturally, we all feel under the weather…sometimes forsaken and lost…sometimes pressed down and forgotten…sometimes at the bottom of the well…unloved and unwanted…unsure and uncertain…and so on. It’s because we are not rooted and grounded in CHRIST JESUS!  As full grown men and women, we know all the answers (we have a job, can operate a motor vehicle, can see, can count money, can eat, can hear, can feel, can touch, we have a college degree or higher, we own a business(es), we are a powerful political person, we are rich, our Daddy or Mama is a big shot).  So, we have arrived to the zenith degree!  BUT TO WHAT?  One day, life catches up to us and we find multiple gray hairs, vision loss, hearing loss, loose teeth, flat feet, weak knees, loss of concentration and memory;  and then,  they take your driver’s license from you.

If you combine the two paragraphs above this message is for the entire human race as  JESUS  is speaking to the World through His conversation with Martha (the sister of Lazarus).  If you think your situation is bad, please consider Lazarus’ condition because he was DEAD for four days; but the Lord raised him up!  Thus, if you are alive and breathing, there is immediate hope for you through JESUS.  Believe this and allow the Lord to raise you up out of your depression, hopelessness, lack of concern, destitution, and unrest!  Allow me to paraphrase:  JESUS  said,    “…though you are dead yet shall you live…”    If you have not accepted, JESUS you are dead in trespasses and sin….please let Him in!   The flip side of this is as follows:   when your spirit and soul leaves your Earthly body (you body is pronounced dead), YET YOUR SPIRIT AND SOUL LIVES in the bosom of CHRIST JESUS!   Ain’t that something?

Have a Blessed Day!

Worldwide News: “He that is Without SIN, Let Him CAST the First STONE!”

The BIBLE states,   “Jesus went unto the Mount of Olives.  And Early in the morning,  He came again into the temple…And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery and when they had set her in the midst,  They said unto Jesus,   Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act…”    After a while,  Jesus said,  “HE THAT IS WITHOUT SIN AMONG YOU, LET HIM FIRST CAST A STONE AT HER…”    (John 8:1-5, 7)

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

In this World and the next, everything centers around JESUS!   He came down from Heaven above to hang on the Cross for the sins of the entire World  (including the unborn people and those who are yet to come).  As a Member of the GODHEAD,  Jesus humbled Himself lower than the Angels (who continuously worship Him) to become a Man!

So, let’s get right on down into the  hornet’s nest  because messy folks like to create division and I want to show you something.  Got a minute?  Imagine somebody was watching the movements of this attractive woman (early in the morning hours) to the degree, they grabbed a few witnesses and caught her chilling with a man (who was not her husband).  Never mind the John or whatever his name was because he pulled up his shorts and remains unnoticed to this very day. But, I beg to differ as this man is just as guilty as the woman!   However, the woman is the  target in this storyIf every neighborhood started a vigilante watch, how many men, women (including teenage boys and girls) will be scooped up by the watch team?  Honey, you will find that not only Mamas, Dads, and teens committing adultery or fornication, but Grandmas and Grandpas are toe-tipping!   Say what?  The Bible states, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God…”    This does not give us the right to keep on sinning and sinning as we come into God’s knowledge and truth because we are suppose to be growing as well.

Here is my point!  As I stated in my previous Blog, there are thousands of innocent people in jail who should be released.  I am not talking about guilty people who deserve to be punished.   I am speaking to you evil lawyers, pompous prosecutors, wicked judges, cut-throat district attorneys, lying witnesses, and false accusers. Don’t judge and condemn others because you too are guilty of sin (and maybe of the same sin). Yet, you show no mercy or compassion toward others.  In the story above, the man got away Scott-free (unbelievable)!   But the public dragged the woman out-of-bed and slammed her down inside the Temple  as  Jesus was teaching the people!   WHAT’S UP WITH THAT?  They intended to humiliate the woman. Mostly likely, the man (who was with the woman) was standing in the backrow of the crowd.  Be careful how you treat others because whatsoever a man soweth that also shall he reap!  So,  Jesus said,  “HE THAT IS WITHOUT SIN AMONG YOU, LET HIM FIRST CAST A STONE AT HER…”   Well, they all left the Temple!

Have a Blessed Day!

Worldwide News: “The ACCUSER 24/7…”

The BIBLE states,   “…for  the accuser of our brethren is cast down which accused them before our God  day and night…”   (Revelation 12:10)   Let us examine  “The ACCUSER 24/7!”

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

If  it was not the  Lord JESUS,  most of us would be dead and sleeping in our graves!   There are countless times we promised (on a stack of Bibles) to obey God’s Word but we failed.  Instead, we slipped back into perdition. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!  We promised to stop lying, whore-hopping, lusting, sneaking around corners, drinking, playing church, smoking, flipping the television channels to porn, hiding certain magazines in the garage or up under the car seat, and so many other ungodly things we swore to stop doing.

Nothing is hidden from God as He sees everything.  But to ensure God does not miss anything, the devil  (who is the accuser and traitor)  tells God  every sinful and ungodly thought, plot, desire, lust, pleasure, and meditation you think to do, design to perform, and act upon!  Let me point this out to you,  the devil tells you, “..go ahead and do this or that…go ahead as no body will know or find out…go ahead no body is looking…go ahead and get your groove on…”  In doing so, that devil convinces you to fulfill your sinful desires and to deal with the consequences after-the-fact! 

However, there are cases where the accusations are true but  God can deliver you from sin, cut-throats, forgive you, deliver you from your mess, and set you free! There was a woman caught in the very act of adultery and the scribes and Pharisees (the District Attorneys) brought this woman to the Temple and set her before Jesus. They brought up the Mosaic law and demanded the woman to be stoned to death. Jesus(acted as the woman’s attorney) gave them an answer which should be adhered to in every court of law throughout the world!  Jesus said, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her!”  

Honey, there are so many thousands of people in jail who should be set free but certain evil lawyers, prosecutors, wicked judges and district attorneys, false accusers and false witnesses have lied on these defendants because of this reason or that reason. GOD SEES YOU and GOD’S WRATH IS COMING UPON YOU!   But after  Jesus (got up from writing on the ground) all the accusers fled the scene and there was no body left to accuse the adulteress. You see, the woman was guilty but every man and woman present (including the scribes and Pharisees) were guilty of sin. Perhaps, some of them were guilty of the same sin but they never got caught!  However, the accuser of our brethren will be cast down to the Lake of Fire!

Have a Blessed Day!
