Worldwide News: “ALL IS VANITY!”

The Bible says, The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. (Ecclesiastes 1:1-2) If you own an island, a country, slaves, free men, businesses, partnerships, hair salons, boutiques, airplanes, boats, multiple cars, condos, townhomes, posh vans, golf clubs, membership in a private clubs, coin collections, shoes, purses, jewelry, marbles/jacks, or whatever it is, “ALL IS VANITY!” Even if you dig raggedy cars, raggedy clothing, shoes with holes, custom torn clothing, broken down furniture, common living, like poverty, alcohol and drugs, endorse wicked living, like being a hermit/recluse, or give away all your riches to the poor, or whatever it is, “ALL IS VANITY!” 

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

If you want to know about world history, the present times, and the future, read the WORD OF GOD!  The greatest Preacher (in the Old Testament) was king Solomon. Just before his father (king David) died, he charged Solomon “…to walk with the Lord thy GOD in all His ways, keep His statutues, commandments, judgments, and testimonies as it is written in the law of Moses that thou mayest prosper in all thou doest and whethersoever thou turnest thyself…” (I Kings 2:3)

By 1 Kings 3:3, Solomon “loved the Lord and he walked in the statues of David his father…” The problem is the dying king (David) told Solomon “…to walk with the Lord thy GOD in all His ways …”  For sure, David did not tell Solomon do as I do! We all know king David was not perfect but “…he is called a man after God’s own heart…”   This statement (by itself) serves notice to the entire world of David’s repenting spirit and character. In fact, all Christians endeavor to be labeled godly men and women (like David) after God’s own heart!  One day, we shall stand before the ALMIGHTY LIVING GOD to give an account of our deeds and we want HIM to say, “Well done thy good and faithful servant…come up a little higher…”  No doubt very loving parent want his offspring to exceed in life. Unless the parent is totally out-of-the will of GOD, he will guide the child to obey the Word of God and to live a morally clean life.

In truth, Solomon was truly his father’s son:  (1) Like king David,  Solomon loved the Lord but he had a huge conflict of interest as he loved many, many, many strange women. On record, Solomon loved about one thousand (one thousand) women! That is nine hundred and ninety (990) women to love and to be faithful unto death. Solomon’life was too complicated as one women wanted an altar to worship her false god…another woman wanted an orchard (full of trees, plants, flowers) native to her country…another wanted a house built exclusively for herself and offspring…another wanted a chapel built for her private worship of false gods….another woman wanted her son to be crowned prince…another wanted Solomon all to herself (goodluck). In those days, Solomon did not have an Excel spreadsheet to keep up with all requests or a computer to alphabetize all the women he loved (including the ones on the side lines).

(2) Solomon was walking in the statues of David not God and this led to his down fall as a back slidden Preacher! As a child, Solomon lived in the palace with both parents and he had first hand knowledge about court procedures and the wickedness behind closed doors. The king and queen had servants and the servants talked about this and that and strange happenings in the palace. Frankly, Solomon heard many comments he was too young to understand; but as he grew into young adulthood he understood.

Well into his kingship (being supernaturally blessed and a backslidden Preacher), king Solomon wrote the Book of Ecclesiastes (Old Testament). King Solomon said, “A good name is better than precious ointment and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.” (Ecclesiastes 7:1)  Yet (as both king and Preacher over Israel in Jerusalem), Solomon gave his heart “…to know wisdom, madness, and folly.”    What kind of mess is this?   Thus, Solomon became the preacher of fools  one minute and the next day, Solomon was the preacher full of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.  Again, he was NOT right in the head DISPLAYING great wisdom, knowledge and understanding and the next minute a nut. He pivoted back and forth between these concepts (wisdom, madness, and foolishness) like a demonic individual.

As a recipient of wisdom, knowledge, understanding as well as riches and honor, Solomon forfieted his blessings to play the part of a court jester (who sought to please the audience in the court). In the same breath (praising God), king Solomon still played the fool just as the jester!

(3) Solomon found out that the more one has, the more one is accountable to GOD, “For in much wisdom is much grief and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.” (Ecclesiastes 1:18) What does this mean for us today!  The more one knows and understands, the more one is responsible and accountable to GOD.  When you know the “right way” and folks are going the “wrong way,” it is a grievous thing. For example, a parent raises his child to be obedient and to respect others in authority over him; but, the child rebels and bucks against authority, it is grievous to the parent.  Using the model left behind, king Solomon waves a white flag to warn us not to seek wisdom, madness, and folly.

No matter how many blessings the LORD GOD bestows upon us, we are not to put the gifts before the GIVER!  If the Lord gives you a brand new vehicle, don’t parade throughout town showing off….if the Lord gives you understanding, don’t sell yourself short to wicked people….if the Lord gives you a beautiful home don’t make it a shrine…whatever the Lord gives you, don’t put it before the LORD GOD, “ALL IS VANITY!”

Have a Blessed Day!

Worldwide News: ‘Didn’t GOD DO IT?”

 

The Bible says, “Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.”   (I Kings 3:12-13) Check this out,   “Didn’t GOD DO IT?”   While we are yet praying and making requests known unto GOD, the answers are on the way to us!

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

If you want to know about world history, the present times, and the future, read the WORD OF GOD!

One of the greatest Preachers (in the Old Testament) was king Solomon. Just before king David died, he charged Solomon “…to walk with the Lord thy GOD in all His ways, keep His statutes, commandments, judgments, and testimonies as it is written in the law of Moses that thou mayest prosper in all thou doest and whethersoever thou turnest thyself…” (I Kings 2:3)

By 1 Kings 3:3, Solomon “…loved the Lord and was walking in the statues of David his father…” In Scripture, all the kings were compared to king David (a man after God’s own heart).  And, we know that David was not perfect as he was guilty for the death of one of his “Mighty Men – Uriah” and for taking Uriah’s wife, Bathsheba! Yet, David repented for these sins and God forgave him. Contrary to king David’s orders, Solomon was walking in the statutes of David and not completely in the statues of the Lord thy GOD. Why?  In I Kings 3:1, Solomon made a political agreement with Pharaoh to marry his daughter and this was not in keeping with the Mosaic Law!   Thus, Solomon not only loved the Lord, but he loved many, many, many strange women (about 1,000 or more) and they stole Solomon’s heart from loving and obeying the LORD GOD.

Yet, GOD blessed Solomon because he respected HIM as the LORD GOD of his father, king David. One thing for sure, the young king Solomon offered burnt offerings upon the altar to GOD (in high places). At that time,  there was no temple to worship in. One night, the LORD appeared (in a dream) to Solomon,  “Ask what I shall give thee.”  Solomon said, “Give Thy servant an understanding heart to judge Thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this Thy so great a people?” 

And, “Didn’t GOD DO IT?”   We all know the answer to that question. The Word says, “The speech pleased the LORD that Solomon has asked this thing. And GOD said to him, Because thou hast asked this thing and has not asked riches for thyself, nor asked the life of thine enemies; but asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment: Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee, before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. And I have also given thee that which thou has not asked, both riches, and honor; so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days. And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes, and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days. ”  (I Kings 3:10-14)

This is wonderful news for those who are struggling with good and evil. Once we place all trust in the LORD GOD to completely obey HIS Word, the LORD GOD will come through for us. After periods of testing, trials, and tribulations, the LORD will answer our prayers. The LORD laid out the plan for Solomon and the same goes for all of us.

Although, Solomon was young, inexperienced, green behind the ears, and unproven as a successful king (like David), GOD said, “Behold, I have done according to thy words….”  Do you realize what this means? While king Solomon was praying, the answer was on its way! Take hold of this and don’t toot up your lips! If you are praying for something special from the LORD GOD, get up off your fanny and speak it into action for their is life in your words. Knock, seek, ask and it shall be done unto you!   But, you’ve got to believe it!  If you don’t get anything else out of this, check out the life of king Solomon because there was no other king like him, before him, and/or after him! “Didn’t GOD DO IT?”

Have a Blessed Day!

 

Worldwide News: “TRUE RICHES vs. UNRIGHTEOUS RICHES!”

The Bible says, “If therefore ye have not been faithful in the UNRIGHTEOUS MAMMON [unrighteous riches] who will commit to your trust the TRUE RICHES?  And if you have not been faithful in that which is another man’s who shall give you that which is your own?”   (Luke 16:11)   Check it out, “TRUE RICHES vs. UNRIGHTEOUS RICHES.”

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

Many people seek job security, positive return on investments, property, boats, cars, money in the checking, big savings accounts, partnerships, registered LLC’s, etc. Frankly, all of these wants are great but we’ve got to review them in light of GOD’S WORD!

In the New Testament, Dr. Luke talks about a certain rich man whose steward wasted his goods (unrighteous mammon). Sounds familiar? So the rich man called the steward saying, “Give an account of thy stewardship for thou mayest be no longer be steward.”  (Luke 16:2) Right away, we see Dr. Luke’s statement come true, “….who will commit to your trust unrighteous mammon [unrighteous riches]?”

Naturally, the steward began thinking within himself, “I’m gonna be ashamed and out of a job.” So, the steward called every one of his lord’s debtors to collect. Shortly, the rich man heard about the unjust steward’s quick thinking and collection activities that he commended the unjust steward.

Unfortunately, the steward’s salvage activities was below average. You see, he collected fifty percent (50%) of the debt owed to his lord. As the unfaithful steward called each debtor, he said, “How much owest thou unto my lord? And the debtor said, an hundred measures of oil. And the steward said take thy bill …sit down quickly, and write fifty. Then he said to another debtor, how much owest thou? And the debtor said, an hundred measures of wheat. And the steward said unto him, take thy bill and write fourscore.” (Luke 16:5-7) There’s no telling how many debtors were lined-up to pay their bills. However, the rich man was glad to get something rather than nothing! In fact, anybody would be glad to something back!

In truth, worldly men and women (whether top level CEO’s or folk at the bottom delivering coffee and donuts) plot, scheme, lie, cheat, back stab one another to get ahead. Why? They do it for unrighteous mammon (unrighteous riches). You see, these people are unrighteous and they seek unrighteous rewards. Does this make sense to you? They seek the riches which have wings and fly away! They line their pockets with gold but the pockets have holes in them.

On the contrary, Dr. Luke is promoting “TRUE RICHES” not UNRIGHTEOUS RICHES. In the spiritual realm, “True Riches” lead to eternal life forever. Those who worship the True GOD must worship HIM in “spirit and truth.”  The New Testament tells us that the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, “Walk in the SPIRIT and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.”  (Galatians 5:16-18)  As many of you know, the law is only a school master for the wicked!

Question: What are the works of the flesh and how are they manifested? I’m so glad you asked! Galatians 5:19-21 reads,  “Now the works of the flesh are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God..”   Thus, the works of the flesh are the lusts of the flesh and they go after unrighteous riches. And, unrighteous riches are temporary (not eternal). They fade away because as riches have wings and their reward/glory is only momentary. In fact, people forget the things and sacrifices others make for them! In fact many rich people leave their money to their adult children who burn (baby burn) through the seed money. Usually, the sons or daughters have no clue how their parent(s) suffered to earn a nest egg for them. Most of them (not all) live as  Prophet Job’s  first set of adult children. Remember, Job got up early every day and made an offering for them to  GOD! Job said,  “They may have sinned against God.” 

Now you see why we all (as Christians) have the same concerns to walk in the Spirit as our flesh (the members of our body) are always tugging and pulling on us to fulfil fleshly desires. That’s why so many of us stay in trouble! For instance, if a man sees a pretty woman and/or a woman sees a handsome man, his or her flesh may intimately desire to know that person. You feel me?

So, what kind of spiritual things should we seek?  Lets go back to the WORD of GOD. The manifestations of good clean spiritual living is more rewarding than the works of the flesh. Galatians 5:22-23 states, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”  Therefore, our flesh has to die; yet, we can still enjoy the wonderful blessings of God. 

Apostle Matthew tells us, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. BUT lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through to steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:19-20)

Finally, “TRUE RICHES vs. UNRIGHTEOUS RICHES”  as the Spirit is at war with the flesh.

Have a Blessed Day!

 

Worldwide News: “YOU CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS!”

The Bible says, “NO servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Luke 16:13)

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

No matter how you look at it, we live in a nasty world. Most of the people (not you) are looking for fame, fortune, security, and wealth. So lets call it what it is = RICHES! Question: What is riches? Answer: MAMMON!  The hunger and thirst for riches is ridiculous. People are so impatient for money that one can see the sweat (like plastic rain drops) dripping off their big foreheads. They will lie, cheat, steal, plot, and do whatever it takes to get money out of others.

When you serve the LIVING GOD, trouble will come  your way.  Tests, trials, and tribulations knock at your door but don’t submit.  You ain’t got to turn tricks and plot to get money,  a new pair of shoes, or whatever to achieve your goals. Certainly, ill circumstances befall of us but the devil sends them your way to fool you out of God’s blessings. You see, the devil knows that “blessings” are on the way to you as a reward for overcoming but you cannot see it because your troubles inflame your vision. These trials and tribulations come to make you strong not to break you. The Lord does not glory in your failures as He said, “I would that you live abundantly…above all you can imagine….”

Not only is God our Father, HE IS OUR MASTER!  Jesus said, “…there is none good but the FATHER….”  As our Good FATHER, HE will make a way out of no way for HIS obedient children. Remember the phrase, “man’s extremity is GOD’S opportunity….”

As the WORD of GOD says, “No servant can serve two masters….”  In this respect, you must serve, trust, and obey the LORD GOD every day (not sometimes or when you feel like it). If someone (like Hollywood) is tempting you with fame, glory, material goods, property, riches, wealth, drugs, or whatever, you must learn to resist the temptation as your soul is more precious than silver and gold.

The WORD of GOD says, “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?”  If you cannot understand the last phrase, Google all the folks in Hollywood who got turned out, dropped, destroyed, and died too soon for money, fame, fortune, and fool’s glory. For example, if the Hollywood producer or director tells you to do something (contrary to the Word of God) for wages and you do it, then, you choose to sin against GOD!

If you stand up (in the name of the LORD JESUS) to the Hollywood producer or director, YOU’VE WON the battle against good and evil. You might not get the part or you may be fired but so what! Again, YOU’VE WON in the sight of the LORD GOD and GOD is a jealous GOD!  You made the choice to serve GOD not mammon! You may walk away broke but you are rich in the LORD JESUS and your integrity is still in tact. Plus, the devil did not get the victory over your body, mind, and soul!  Praise the Lord!

Whatever you do with your life is your business but you don’t own yourself…you did not make yourself…and you did not put yourself on this planet. Furthermore, “YOU CANNOT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS – YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS!”

Have a Blessed Day!

 

Worldwide News: “If the dEVIL tried to tempt JESUS, he is coming after YOU!”

The Bible says,  “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to Him, he said,  If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread…If Thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down: for it is written, He shall give His angels charge concerning thee…Again, the devil taketh Him up into an exceeding high mountain and sheweth Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them…[the tempter said] All these things will I give thee If Thou wilt fall down and worship me…”    (Matthew 4:1-10)

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

My darling Brothers and Sisters in CHRIST JESUS,

If the dEVIL tried to tempt Jesus, he is coming after YOU and I mean all of us! The tempter tried to work on Jesus’ nerves and he will work on ours. Furthermore, the dEVIL will work and work and work on your nerves until he tries to break you down to dirt level. If  you  are not prayed-up and weak in the faith, you  will not endure the testings. For this reason, you’ve got to pray and I mean pray hard.

LOOK IT!    (1)   If you are given to appetite, the devil will tempt you with rich foods, pastries, wines, strong drinks, etc. You’ll find yourself dining out once a week or every night (if possible). The dEVIL will send attractive people to lure you to bed by inviting you to eat dinner or have a night cap with them! He ain’t gonna send somebody bow legged or toothless! The enemy will send Mr./Miss Fine as Wine in Summer Time to lure you!   On the other side, you may be a strong Christian in the LORD and you may be fasting!  However, the enemy will send people to invite you to breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  Perhaps, the enemy will ring your phone day and night with junk. If this happens, take the phone off the hook and tell your friends that you are busy!  The dEVIL told Jesus, “…command stones be made bread…” 

LOOK IT!   (2)   If you are unhappy with your spouse, girlfriend, family, school, career, or job, the enemy will tell you to run away! Again, the tempter will lure you with an out-of-state job or  relocation to another city or town away from your family. Now, not all relocations are given to destroy the family but if your moral/spiritual constitution is weak, you may fail. For example:  (a)  you may rent an apartment or house next to Mr/Miss Hot Pants who needs a cup of brown sugar or two eggs every Friday night! Here is another:  (b)  example, the enemy will tell you to destroy your own life! Don’t you listen to that evil lying demonic spirit because you will go straight to hell! If you commit suicide, you are taking your ife and you did not give life to yourself!   The dEVIL told Jesus, “…If Thou be the Son of God, cast Thyself down…”

LOOK IT!   (3)   If your life hangs on the false promises of others, you will be disappointed. The WORD states, “…do not put your trust in man for he surely will fail you…”  How many times did people make commitments to you and they never came through? In fact, you are still looking for their promises to be fulfilled 20 years later! Sometimes, the promises were made providing you first complete a commitment or duty unto them! For instance, someone may have said, “Come over and spend the night with me and I’ll do the same next weekend…”  However, they changed their mind and phone number and you ain’t even heard from them since that particular night! You follow me?   The dEVIL made false promises to Jesus,  “…If Thou wilt…fall down and worship me…I will give you all kingdoms of the world and the glory of them…”  Allow me to say, the dEVIL don’t own nothing and he ain’t got nothing to give because everything belongs to GOD THE FATHER!  Furthermore, everything that belongs to GOD, also belongs to JESUS and the HOLY GHOST!   Just remember,   “If the dEVIL tried to tempt JESUS, he is coming after YOU!”

Well we are entering Resurrection Sunday and I want you to have a wonderful EASTER!

 

Worldwide News: “FAITH IS MATTER = SUBSTANCE!”

 

The Bible says, NOW faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  (Hebrews 11:1)   Webster’s Dictionary defines: (1) faith as belief in the truth, value or trustworthiness of someone or something; Belief and trust in GOD.  (2) substance as matter that occupies space and has mass.  (3) matter is something that occupies space and displays the properties of inertia and gravitation when at rest as well as in motion.”   Topic: “FAITH IS MATTER = SUBSTANCE!”

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME: We keep on running around and around the camp trying to figure out our problems, things, and other people but that’s not what the LORD GOD desires of us! If you want to please the Lord, you must have faith and it can be as small as a mustard seed – but you’ve got to have it! You ain’t never gonna figure out people as they change from moment to moment, day to day – depending upon their heartburn(s).  If they eaten hot peppers and chili you can forget about going to the movies. If they drink too much beer, you can forget about going out to dinner. If they are still sleep on the couch by 1:00 PM on Saturday, you can forget about going to the beach! These are just the basic things but you can figure the rest out.

What is Apostle Paul telling us about faith, Hebrews 11:1? 

You cannot see faith because you cannot put it in a bottle or cut it with a knife. However, “…NOW faith is the substance of things hoped for…the evidence of things not seen…”   Notice Apostle Paul begins with the word “NOW” as it means this very second your faith is activated as it ain’t something you’ve got to get out the deep freeze!  However, the actualization of the promise (…the things hoped for….) may be delayed or it may come right away –  but it is coming!  For instance you prayed for a good job but the actual job has not materialized – you cannot see the job or the company but it is definitely out there. Whether or not the job description is listed on the internet or in the news paper, you believe there is a job just for you! Whether or not you’ve applied for the position, you have faith to believe the job or another like it is being prepared with your name on it!  Don’t you never give up!

What is the driving force within your pressing on?

You believe in GOD because “He is – I AM WHO I AM” and this is the force within compelling you to put your best foot forward day by day. However, you can feel the LORD GOD living on the inside in your heart and speaking to your mind. This is the Holy Spirit of God who keeps you….speaks to you within your heart…speaks in your inner ear…advises you to do right not wrong…tells you when you are wrong and condemns your mistakes…advises you repent of wickedness, etc.

When will the substance of things hoped for materialize?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had a time table for the evidence of things to surface or materialize? Let’s go back to the job you’ve been praying for as it may come next week or within 30 to 60 days! However, you’ve got to maintain Faith in GOD that HE is able to do what HE says!

Yep! This is unwavering faith from day to day and it is not dependent upon your mood or the circumstances in your life! As you know our lives are up and down everyday as one minute everything is great and the next minute all hell breaks loose. You’ve got to believe if the sun shines or the clouds darken the sky! You’ve got to believe whether your spouse, family, friends, supervisor, or co-workers on the job act up or not.

Whatever GOD says HE will do or deliver, you can take that to the bank!  Remember this, “FAITH IS MATTER = THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR AND THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN!”

Have a Blessed Day!

 

 

 

 

Worldwide News: “The BEST Meat Loaf Recipe!”

The Bible says, “BUT strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”  (Hebrews 5:14)    Apostle Paul told the Corinthians,   “I have fed you with milk and not with meat…for ye were not able to bear it…ye are yet carnal where as there is among you envying, strife, divisions, are ye not carnal and walk as men?”    (1 Corinthians 3:2-3)   The trouble with many of us is that we want to drink milk for the rest of our lives as we are little babies in Christ Jesus. Although we have teeth, we still ain’t ready for beef jerky or strong (tuff) meat. We want Mommy to put pacifiers in our mouths and continue sheltering us from the outside world – but life ain’t like that! Please read on…

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

Apostle Paul was commissioned to preach the GOSPEL to the Gentiles and he did quite well. Very openly, Apostle Paul instructed Christians to be ” better…”  that is to be like CHRIST JESUS,

“But we see JESUS, who was made a little lower than the angels [although Jesus was made so much better than the angels Hebrews 1:4]  for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both He that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified [set apart] are all of one: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren.” (Hebrews 2:9-11)

When things don’t go our way, we throw tantrums like little babies who thrown down their empty bottles or who kick and fuss when they want out of the crib. By the time we are 2 years of age, we bully the rest of the family (especially parents, siblings, and grand parents) by whining, crying, and smashing things. Yet, we still got the nipple in our mouths! But no Mother wants a six year old sucking on her breasts! Likewise, the LORD JESUS wants us to get off the tittee milk to start feasting on the MEAT OF THE WORD!

Check out “THE BEST MEAT LOAF RECIPE!”  Lets call this a spiritual prescription for Christians to use:

(1) HOLY GHOST “spiritual food” which never, never, never, never fails. As you know, the HOLY GHOST is the Third Member of the Triune God and He is always present before the Throne of GOD!  This is not made with the beef meat from your local supermarket and you cannot buy it no where on Earth. This “spiritual meat”  which is without price/without cost and it comes down directly from Heaven.

(2) HOLY GHOST “spiritual sauce” which never, never, never, never fails. As you know, the HOLY GHOST “spiritual sauce” is red because the Blood of the LAMB is red. Unlike Hunt’s sauce, this spiritual sauce never sours, never fades away, and it is alive! All you have to do is throw yourself in this spiritual sauce and let it overcome you like you do when you jump into the swimming pool filled with water. 

(3) HOLY GHOST “spiritual seasoning” which never, never, never, never fails. As you know, the HOLY GHOST “spiritual seasoning” is full of ingredients: the Salt of the Word (the Gospel  of Jesus Christ)…Beaten eggs (you will be beaten into harmony with the other ingredients)…Hot Pepper (you will be stirred up on fire by the Holy Ghost to serve the Lord)…Water and Vinegar (as water and blood flowed from Jesus’ side) we too are Baptized in water and flavored and preserved by the vinegar).

(4) HOLY GHOST “spiritually baked” which never, never, never, never fails. As you know, the HOLY GHOST puts us in the fire to be “spiritually baked” at high temperatures. Like the Hebrew Boys (who were in the fiery furnace), we are not alone. From time to time a flame may soar up, but you will not be burned. Many times, we fall down on our Christian duties and the Lord allows us to feel scorched pain. If we repent (be Godly sorrowful), get up, make an about face and follow Christ, we will be forgiven!

After all is said and done,  “…you will have eaten the strong meat which belongs to them that are of full age and you will know how to discern both good and evil…”    “THE BEST MEAT LOAF RECIPE!”

Have a Blessed Day!
