Worldwide News: “can GOD dance?”

The  Bible states,  All things were made by GOD and without GOD was not anything made that was made.”  (John 1:3)   Can you think of anything that was not made by GOD or anything that GOD cannot do (except lie and/or make you serve HIM)?  

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:  

Let’s not be silly so let’s get real!  TO THE LITTLE KID LIVING WITHIN YOU THE ADULT: 

Let’s analyze John 1:3 another way, “GOD CREATED EVERYTHING.”   Perhaps, you’ve been let down by loved ones, abandoned, given up for adoption, put into foster homes, scolded, told that you are nothing and nobody, locked up by the law or whatever.  Basically, you have been robbed of your innocence as a child, teenager, and/or young adult.

If possible, lay aside every weight and hindrance and go with me to an untarnished spot in your heart.  By the way everyone has a secret compartment within their heart which they hide from others.  Do not tell me that you don’t find joy and happiness in something because even the meanest person laughs some times!

Allow me to speak to the little kid who lives in your heart.  Pretend that I am telling you a bedtime story about the Creator of the Universe.

(1)   I grab a concept of someone in a fairytale story who was great and powerful,  the  “WIZARD OF OZ!”   We all know that the Wizard helped Dorothy to return to her Aunt Em.  Next, I compare the Wizard to The ALMIGHTY GOD.  Off-the- record, we know there is no comparison but keep in mind that I am appealing to the little kid in you.

(2)  I inform you that there is nothing hidden from GOD as HE sees, hears, and knows everything you say, think, do, and plot to do!  As a little child, you ask,  “Did GOD see me when I slapped my baby brother in the face, took his bottle, and drank the milk?” Naturally, I  (as the adult) say,  “Yes, is that why your brother was crying?”

(3)  By now, I’ve got the complete attention of the 5 year;  so I say,  “Do you like birthday parties?”   For sure, all kids like birthday parties because they like to give gifts, play games, receive party favors, have lots of fun, run around, exhaust themselves, and dance to the music.

(4)  Now, I  ask,   “can GOD dance?”   Most likely, the little child will say,  “YES, I saw HIM dancing.”  And,  I say,  “Oh really?”    And,  the child (being smart as a whistle) says, “Sure, GOD CAN DO EVERYTHING!”  

Have a Blessed Day!

Worldwide News: “DID YOU HEAR?”

The Bible states,  “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind. And that ye put on the new man which after GOD is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor for we are members one of another. Be angry and sin not; let not the sun go down upon your wrath.  Neither give place to the devil.  Let him that stole steal no more but rather let him labor working with his hands the thing which is good that he may have to give to him that needed.  Let not corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth but that which is good to the use of edifying that it may minister grace unto the hearers.  And grieve not the Holy Spirit of GOD, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.  Let all bitterness and wrath, and anger, and clamor and evil speaking be put away from you with all malice.  And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ‘s sake hath forgiven you.”   (Ephesians 4:23-32)   You may need a  “NEW ATTITUDE!”   

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:   

Holy Moses!  Some of us have a few days left (before the New Year comes in) to get it right!    So, let’s paraphrase the above Scriptures in another way! 

(A)  Adopt a NEW ATTITUDE:  If you planning to be successful in 2014, you’ve got to lay aside the “old man/old woman”  and  “PUT ON THE NEW MAN/WOMAN  in  CHRIST JESUS”  (that is living and walking in righteousness and true holiness).  If you are guilty of any of the following, you’ve got to check yourself:  

(1)  LYING:  if you cannot tell the truth where  you’ve been and/or with whom you are talking/texting on your cell phone or emailing loaded potato messages to over the Internet, you are wrong because you ain’t right.  You done said a whole lot of stuff  to make the late Rudolph Valentino or Mae West  turn over in his or her grave!  You can plan to take Fee-fee-Lamoure (or the sexiest man alive) out to Bed and Breakfast but you won’t give your wife or husband a cheap box of candy or a $6.00 gift from K-Mart’s blue light special.  You’ve been making promises to be better but you’re getting worse. 

(2) MAD WITH THE WORLD:  you’re so mad that no body in the house or at work can ask you a decent question or differ in opinion(s).   When you wake up you’re mad within a few minutes because you’ve got to get up…look at your mate…feed the kids…wash the dog…start the car…drive folk around…go to work…look at the ugly folks at work…take breaks on site…and start the whole process again day after day after day after day.  In your opinion, your life is boring!  In fact you are full of bitterness and bad communication because YOU AIN’T GOT NOTHING GOOD TO SAY! 

Perhaps you may not be stealing hub caps or cars but you’ve been stealing ideal time away from your family members and fellowship with the Lord.  You may be addicted to work as an alcoholic to liquor (one drink ain’t good enough because the buzz ain’t strong enough).  You bring work home and you stay on it for hours and hours or you may bring BAD work attitudes home to your family.   When you are caught and cited violations from your family, you breathe out corrupt communication about your civil rights (whatever that may be).  

If you are guilty of the anything which may not be Biblical, I suggest that you make a severe change in your life. If there is any doubt in your mind, ask your family to give you either a verbal or written survey about yourself. 

(B)  If you’ve got a NEW ATTITUDE, don’t worry:    If  you are not guilty of the above items and you are doing your best in CHRIST JESUS, I suggest that you keep on keeping on.  Don’t get lifted up in pride and keep a check on yourself through the Lord JESUS!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
