Life Is Not easy: Quit Blaming The Devil

Life is not easy but Some people blame everything on the devil. You fall sick - oh, it's satan punishing me. Your Car broke down - it's because they're in Lucifer's hands. Maybe you Lost the job - oh I have been Jinxed. it's probably some books I'm reading. or it's the songs I have been listening to or the movies I have been watching. Maybe I ate some new food. It could be the pastor's message tagged You "allowed" demons to enter your life. Truth is, bad stuff happens because we live in an imperfect world. That's why both good and bad events happen to all people.

Life Is Not easy: Quit Blaming The Devil


Evidently Jesus defeated "satan" and "demons" on the cross, but he's still causing havoc on earth. Really? Then Jesus should we suffer? Yes-No,then we should expect believers to always be healthy, rich, being the CEOs of companies and never be stuck in traffic jams. Right? But no, bad stuff happens to all people - both Christians and unbelievers. To people who are fully in grace and those in apparent "SIN". It also happens to those who don't even know God exists and it happens to people who swear by the Bible. It's not because of "demons". It's because of this thing called life. life is not easy neither is it perfect. The "devil" was the old covenant that will be destroyed on Christ return

Without Faith It Is Impossible To Please God

 Without-Faith-It-Is-Impossible-To-Please-God


Without Faith It Is Impossible To Please God;We need to become an empty Vessel, to Please The LORD God Almighty. You and I need to Submit and Surrender to Him, our  Soul, Spirit, Mind, Heart and Body; that He may empty you (and I), by Removing All that has been riding our Body, Soul, Spirit, Mind, and Heart( Everything that does not belong to Him)  Must be removed , for you and me to Please Him. When we commit Sins such as Evil, Wickedness, Immoralities, Curses;we tend to be afar from the Lord and become play things in the hands of the devil.

Daniel 12: 9-10 -And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.”

We must learn to Submit and Surrender for our own good and make God top priority in our life because when we do this, The LORD will then Handle us (Deal with us) in HIS own way; for our own good, Now and Forever more. For He will then put in us  His Holy Fire and his annointing, so that we be Refined and that all impurities in us (Our soul, spirit, mind, heart and body) be burned away. He will also at the same time Wash us Clean through His Blood; The Blood of Jesus Christ (The Messiah). He will then Spread forth His Mighty Hand towards us and thereby Shine forth His Light upon us; The great Light that Chases away All darkness that was in us, and that was Surrounding us.

John 3: 18-19 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

Ezekiel 36: 25-27 "Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them"

 Without-Faith-It-Is-Impossible-To-Please-God

Having thus Become empty in our thirst for the heart of God (empty vessels; emptied by The LORD), He will then Fill us with His Presence,glory and mighty Power; The Mighty Power of The LORD and His Mighty Presence. The LORD will Sanctify us through His Word and will Fill us with The Holy Spirit (For The LORD will now dwell in us, as Temples of The Holy Spirit). We essentially will have thus become Vessels of Honour (that have now attained Spiritual Golden Stature); useful for The LORD, for the work (tasks) of The LORD, Worshiping The LORD in Spirit and in Truth, and Serving The LORD in Purity, Faithfulness and Humility.

2nd Timothy 2: 20-21-“But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”

 The LORD shall and will have thus Purified us, Refined us, Cleaned us, Cleansed us, Sanctified us and indeed Consecrated us (Blessed us and set us apart to Glorify and to Honour His Mighty Name). We shall be Blameless, Sparkling Clean, Bright and without Spiritual wrinkles before The LORD.

Bottom Line: Without Faith It Is Impossible To Please God but more importantly we need Christ Love in our hearts for God is Love and to serve God,you must first learn to Love.

SHALOM!

what does the blood of jesus do- to take away the sins of the world

what does the blood of jesus do?

what-does-the-blood-of-jesus-do

It take away the sins of the world so that ALL MEN are BORN RIGHTEOUS.
=============================
The blood of Jesus is the core of Christianity.Without first understanding what happened to Adam in the beginning of the Bible, it is impossible to understand the rest of the Bible and what Jesus has done. If you ask people about Adam's original sin, you get many answers like pride, disobedience, etc.

The Truth Is this:

  • If you look at it, Adam did not hate, kill, steal or commit adultery, etc. He did not break any moral commandments.
  • It's because God never gave Him any of those because he didn't need it;what he needed to do was to avoid the mother of all these sins(the fruit of knowledge of good and evil)!!
His "sin" that he disobeyed God when he went  UNDER the system of knowledge of good/evil. This grevious "sin" was stemmed from the desire committed by man aided by his wife. Paul confirms in Romans 7 that it was the law that brought the knowledge of good/evil and that man died "spiritually" on the day he received the law !!
So then Adam's "sin" was to be under the law !!

Just think about it!! If there was no law, then there is no sin !!

This law was man's desire and not God's will.
God created it because He knew the heart of men and that they(man) wanted it.
Man went under the law, and became a "sinner".
God had to honor the law and judge man according to the law, until Christ took away the law.
Now we can understand Christ's finished work.

Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? .For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. .So then if, while herhusband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.-Galatians 3:15-25

Christ ,although born under the law, and appeared in the flesh but did not sin. The law demanded curse/wrath/death for those who were under the law. That's why Christ had to die on the cross to shed his blood to fulfill the law. He only died for those under the law 

And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance
(Heb 9:15). Those under the law had to believe and obey Christ in forsaking the law because judgment day was coming in their lifetime. They were waiting because it was coming "soon" (Rev 22, Heb 10)
In 70AD, the 2nd coming of Christ (aka Judgment Day) happened. All those who believed and did not go back to the law, escaped the wrath of the law that fell upon Jerusalem and it's religious system. The unbelievers perished in Jerusalem because the law brought the curse/wrath.
The law came to an end when Christ removed the law by His finished work. (Rev 15 - the wrath is over).Jesus has finished the work.
(Rev 21 -old things passed away, ALL things are new..IT IS DONE.......Rev 22 - there is no more curse)

Thanks to JESUS' finished work, ALL can  righteous.We were first sinners then we are born as God's children(born again), living on earth to FREELY enjoy LIFE without the obligations of religion.

Religion vs Common Sense

Religion vs Common Sense


Religion vs. common sense as many already know has been a huge problem to humanity since the dawn of time.A few years ago an eight year old girl died on her wedding night in Yemen. The name of this young girl was Rawan, it was discovered that her  parents arranged a marriage with a 40 year old man. At the night of their wedding, her husband who is old enough to be her father took his wife who is a minor, and decided it was good idea to consummate their marriage.The result of this  sexual act was that Rowan died on her wedding night. According to the doctors who examined the cause of her death, it was a "uterine rupture" and tearing of her genitals. Conclusively, she bled to death.


Religion is a system of beliefs or a code of moral conduct that judges (qualifies or disqualifies) a person based on their adherence and obedience to certain codes, rules, laws, traditions, or the performance of required acts.In a country like Yemen and many other parts of the world, it is normal norm to  arrange marriages between children and adults. This is not the first case and certainly not the last, since the laws of Islam approve of such practices. In my humble opinion, savage customs such as these which violate all rights,adults who marry these children and families of children who marry them off to adults should be tried as pedophiles.Religion (almost universally) is enforced by those in power in an attempt to maintain, increase, or abuse their power over others.  Religion is the creation of man and is not the intention or design of God.

I respect all religions as everyone is entitled to believe what they want, but I think we all know what is right and what is wrong. An adult that has sex with a little girl or a little boy is wrong, and that is common sense.It also mean ability to reach intelligent conclusions. sense implies a reliable ability to judge and decide with soundness, prudence, and intelligence. ⟨a choice showing good sense⟩ common sense suggests an average degree of such ability without sophistication or special knowledge.A judgment implies sense tempered and refined by experience, training, and maturity. ⟨they relied on her judgment for guidance⟩ wisdom implies sense and judgment far above average. ⟨a leader of rare wisdom⟩

History has proven to us that men love to follow body of rules stupidly instead of using their common sense.If you do not mind I’ll relay a little history.

Back in 2009, a girl who is a 12 year old was forced by her parents to marry a man of 24 years of age,the girl got preganant and after three days in labor, the girl dies.
Religion vs Common Sense


Likewise in 2010 a 13 year old girl dies after being raped by her own husband  repeatedly as this was the need to prove his manhood.

About 4 years ago an 11 year old girl ran away from home.Why?to avoid a marriage such as this.

These practices are common in Yemen and other Islamic Countries and the government approves this for religious reasons(isn;t that retarded?), and again I wonder what happened to their common sense? What about the sense cipher that which is right and what is wrong?

Incidents like these are not only happening in Yemen. Under the laws of Islam(sorry if someone feels attacked) millions of children die every year worldwide.

As a brother of 3 lovely sisters and who also will father children in the future, I cannot help but ask myself what the hell her parents were thinking when they agreed to this? Or why some parents who I beleieve weren't using their common sense would  allow this to happen? The religious beliefs are one thing, but too many of these underage girls are bought from their families to be wives for a few dollars. The deficiencies in some areas are such that some families, especially in rural areas, accept this money in exhange for their daughter. Personally I think some people should not have children.children are not possessions but gifts from God;a blessing unto you.Why the helll would you hurt them?Did you imagine the pain they would be going through as a sexually matured man penetrates them?How their young organs would feel crushed and their bodies pressured under his weight?Did you even think of the loneliness they experienced and are still experiencing?
Religion vs Common Sense

It's never too late to stop this savagery and stupid act.Get your senses together and act civilised.....Do not eliminate Common sense all in the name of religion;would God really want a minor to have sexual intercourse with a sexually matured man?Weren't the first man and woman ever created sexually matured/Did God create them as under-age?

Every time something like this happens, what comes to my mind is everyone should combat the sexual abuse of minors and adults, human trafficking and a recurring question – What are we talking about when we talk about morality? Common Sense vs Religion-Can you really apply your common sense?

God is at Rest when you are saved!


God is at Rest when you are saved

God created man on the 7th day which is after the 6th day,from all his work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. The 7th day sabbath was the REST of God. God created man in perfection out of  His own image.Adam was perfect in righteousness (although not perfect in behavior).Adam was given a free will;the will to make logical decisions which he violated(the result we all know).In the garden,It was father and Son enjoying life - in REST or what is otherwise known as "Peace of mind and spirit"

But Adam rejected this peace by chosing to be a servant as a result of sin.This act led him into going under the law that judged good and evil(He wanted to be God-like;forgetting he was a god already). He chose to go out of God's rest and plan by trying to "work and attain righteousness on his own wisdom".Israel received the law on Mt.Sinai and yet most of them could not enter God's rest (promised land). They perished as a result of their unbelief in the wilderness.

The true Rest came in Christ. The Sabbath was not just only a day, but it  is significant to Christ(the son)Himself. He finished the WORK and said "it is finished".-John 19:30


"When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost-John 19:30"


We(the chosen generation) have been called ever since CHrist came to leave behind the works of the law to enter the Rest by faith in Christ. You immediately get rest when the law was destroyed as  a result of you gicing your life to Christ.This is the completion of Christ' finished work in His 2nd coming in 70AD when it said in Revelation 21:6, "IT IS DONE".

"And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is thirsty of the fountain of the water of life freely."-Revealation 21:6

The Bible final parts come into realization when Christ's work of removing the law is finished in His second coming.

We were Sinners and to atain REST as God's SONs.
We were sinners under the law who needed "Grace".
Become Christ disciple and accepting Him as your Lord and personal saviour so that You and Christ become one - it simply means that we become perfect Sons of God when we live our lives to please Him. Jesus has eradicated religion as Christianity is a way of life. Once you become righteous and perfect.
There's nothing to do other than draw others to this place of rest. Thereby  enjoying the the LOVE of God and His rest.

you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free



Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32. The key words in this particular passage are “If you continue”. It is important to continue in the word, many have started but Jesus brings to us a condition, we must continue in the discipline of the word in soul, mind and body, in the application of the word of God. The believer is to abide in Christ and through abiding in Christ we find freedom from sin.

Freedom from the power and dominion of sin is the work of the Spirit of Truth.The truth is a revelation of Jesus that the believer lives in. This truth lives in the heart and it is freedom from sin.
 “It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63.

As we submit to the rule of Christ by obeying his word there is power to overcome sin. Abiding in the truth is a continuous process daily in the scriptures, in prayer and worship. If we are going to be free from sin we must abide in the truth. The truth must become a dwelling place.


The word of God is truth that lives on the inside. As we live by the word the work of the Holy Spirit empowers with grace to perform the will of God.

“For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of truth of the gospel; which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of God in truth:”

 Colossian 1:5-6. The truth is the building block of faith and love. We must continue in faith that works by love. God has called us to be an expression of his love in this present world. The hearing of the word of God will cause one to bear fruit, Colossians 1:5-6. Truth is the door of revelation into the grace of God. The word of God is wisdom and knowledge for knowing and performing the will of God. This is the reason why we must continue to abide in the truth.


Maturity comes as a result of abiding in the truth, Ephesians 4:15. As we grow in the truth we grow up in love. Many times the truth as been used as a weapon of destruction by taking the sword of the word of God and use it against one another. Truth is to be spoken in love for the purpose of maturity, healing and medicine for the wounded soul. Many have used the truth in unrighteousness to divide, destroy and bring down one another. Truth should be used to buildup and encourage one another. We will see the grace of God in operation, the gifts working together to build the kingdom of God. Love is the ground, foundation, habitation and reason. Love is the motivation, the goal that unifies us. Therefore specking the truth in love causes growth, and maturity.


We together abiding in the truth must in the bond of love build so that we may grow up together in Christ in all things. The truth from within will cause Christ to dwell in our hearts. Being rooted and grounded in love this truth will cause the believer to be filled with the fullness of God. In this truth we shall raise up in the knowledge of his perfect will. We shall preach the gospel to the poor, strengthen the weak hands and confirm the feeble knees, the eyes of the blind shall be opened; the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. We shall also lay down one day in the dust of the earth, only to be raise from the dust of the earth in the likeness of Christ. We shall know him and we shall be just like Jesus. As he has loved us so shall we love him.


If we continue to abide in the truth of the Gospel we will see the manifestation of power by the Spirit of Unity. Many who have sat idle for many years God will use for his glory. Every member of the body of Christ is to be equipped with the truth to reach out and serve others. In the wisdom and knowledge of God we can be light to a world of darkness.
