It is not for the pastor or clergy to demand that one vote for a particular candidate. Or state do it or else. Shall we call this legalized persuasion? Oh yes, one can listen to campaign speeches and more. But to do things that are illegal and do it in the name of God, is that blasphemy? There are instructions for those and any individual that has confusion regarding any dilemma or uncertainty of any matter under the sun. "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him. And he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: Fear the LORD and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Where confusion is count on the devil to start the fight. He came to this world due to causing a ruckus in heaven and wouldn't one know that for six thousand years he has perfected his game of confusion and manipulation. In the genesis this has always been a spiritual battle. The devil is playing from both sides of the isles; there are kingdom agendas on both sides. Always vote as a Kingdom Representative! It's inconceivable if anyone will not vote in any election in these crucial moments in history. But how should a Christian vote? We are Kingdom Representatives! Our duty is to seek the kingdom of God for ourselves and inquire of the Lord.
The greatest controversy is occurring in present time. The devil has and will continue to be at odds with Christ. The devil wants to disprove that God is Who He says he is the God of love. The devil through away his eternal life with Christ. The devil wants one to believe that Christ is a mean God just waiting to destroy and punish one in an eternal flame. There may be a dispute over whether there is a hell that burns with eternal flames. (For a later conversation). But for now, we know that there is a God in heaven. God's kingdom agenda for believers shall love Him with all your being, to love others as yourself, to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with God.
We can tell a toddler not to touch and object that is hot but turn from them for one second and yes you know they did just what you told them not to do! Believe it or not Jesus has those parental qualities and yet his commands are stated on how to live as saints of God and yet we don't always behave as we should. Then why are people insisting on telling/informing others what to do with their own bodies? Actually, in placing the majority of conservative judges in the highest court in the land, just wait a while and some of your want-to-do with your own body will be attacked and placed into law such as deleting your religious freedom. What day to worship and who to worship hold on about to land another take from you moment, how and what to buy and do it or else command from and individual when one can't obey the God of the universe. So sad, highly likely and probable.
Control and demand, do it or else mentality, don't touch that it's hot! Yet God gives each of us free will. In the Garden of Eden God placed that forbidden tree there because everything else in the Garden was good! Adam and Eve only knew what was good. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil to give them free will. And what one does with this free will is their business and the consequences for their actions of free will. Do we all do what is right, good and moral with our free will. In our minds we can think that we hate our brother/sister; and the Bible states we have committed murder. Are we going to extract the brains from every human being saying they have committed murder? The consequences and judgment of belongs to God. Intensity to restrain someone from what they desire to do will not they find methods to carry out the plan. When we mature adults as teenagers didn't you find a way to do what you wanted. And should you have kids of your own you can affirm this truth. Have we not all at some given time went against the will, the grain of our earthly parents and God as well? Is it our duty to condemn others of what and how to do with their free will? It would be marvelous grand if God controlled us. right!!!
What shall we say to all of this? Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14. Yes, you control your body and do the commandments of God. And pray for those who want to go against the grain of your will and mostly the commands of God. Let us not add to the problems of the world but find solutions instead of murmuring and complaining.
Stay focused with our eyes in Jesus! It's funny and odd at the same time that a lie will have traveled around the world, before the truth even gets to the airport!!!!!!! In this final time of earth, don't get itching ears and forget what God has said in his word and in the Spirit of Prophecy. Don't follow false doctrine and conspiracies that's someone's free will and not the will of God. Remember those itching ears, the salve or ear cleanser is the word of God. That's a remedy for resisting the devil that wants to cause confusion.
The devil is cunning and knows how to place a thorn in your pants., to get one disturbed and angry to do things in the name of God that he didn't instruct them to do. Angry enough to kill, and then demands and turns around and denounce others free will.
If one loves Jesus this is an affirmation to care what happens to the homeless, widows, and orphans. In these cases, it approves for one to be liberal in caring and giving; conservative in caring for the least of these. Don't be religious, walk in the spirit and people will observe God's light shines in the darkness. Whatever the earthly possession one wants to hold onto in this world one will lose. And you do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked. If one remains in this condition then you will become homeless, widowed, and orphaned without a Father in heaven. You will become what you will not take care of in this world for Christ. We must be mindful of what we put a stamp of approval on or vote for.
We have responsibilities which are spiritual. And these are not to be taken lightly or religiously. Religion says you're acting not for Christ but for self-grandeur. Valuable is one's soul. Realize your spiritual responsibilities and pray and seek God for his will and not yours! Christ died for your freedom and others!!! Be involved in what troubles God!!!
What Troubles God?
Love this is what is troubling God? Christian's where is the love you vowed to give to God and to others? The word of God decrees that if you love Him, one will keep His commandments.
Some will almost promise anything in a crisis. One cannot make a vow and not keep the agreement. What if God voided out his promises to us? We are here to bring the Lord glory and not a man, political party, organization/group, etc. You are not your own if you are in Christ. A political party etc. is not to outweigh what God has called one to achieve for the kingdom of God. There will be no political parties in heaven or the New Jerusalem. No flag flown from any nation. It is trivial now and then. People of God who are called by His name, God is love. So where is your love for God and your obedience to what He calls just. How can you say one loves God and not love the man or woman that is in God's own image. If you're hating them then you're hating God. If one hates their brother, the Bible says they are murderers. 1 John 3:15. Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. Individuals want God's love and to favor them when they're in a murderous state of being. They desire forgiveness while strolling around in a childish or selfish state of hate and unforgiveness.
Furthermore, "whoever sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man. Genesis 9:6. God must be shaking His head saying "what are my children thinking" about if they are not walking in LOVE.
When Jesus returns will one be able to stand in His presence if you're walking in the flesh and not in the Spirit of God? As individual's find out who and whose you are before Christ's return. In the parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke Chapter 10 (read) which character are you in this scenario. Find your place, your position, the mind of Christ, His love, His compassion, His forgiveness. God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are just as the body of believers is to unite to become the Bride of Christ. Walking up the isle to become one with our Bridegroom and that is accomplished in LOVE!
Seek God in prayer and see what solutions will be found to assist those who want to make the changes because one loves God. God is not some cruel God who is ready to beat you down with a stick (that's the devil trying to kill you). God desires fellowship and communication with His children. Remember you're not too big to sit in Jesus' lap and learn great and mighty things that you know not of the secret things of God for you and your children's children. Seek the Lord while he can be found. He loves you and is eager to speak with you!!! God makes all things new!!!
"Make A Decision"
What are you waiting for to have a relationship with Christ; the right sunset, the perfect month, when everything by your own hands aligns with God's will? Beloved that will not occur. One can only come to the Father through Jesus Christ. Eat from His table or get up and die? Person's may be unable to return to Jesus until it's too late. Your chair and position were removed. This may not sound religiously correct or softly spoken but concerned for your/our spiritual well-being.
All of the confusion about an election and mounting hatred about a political party is ridiculous and a distraction from the real issues or who is causing the confusion and lies. Number one there are souls in the balance that don't know Jesus or those that know Him to need to discover the true Jesus and not religiosity. The nation is drunk off of the wine of Babylon, foolishness about a man/woman and which one is correct, and they have left God completely out of the equation. This country, this world, man will not have the final say so, but by God's sovereignty. He even holds the government upon His Shoulders. Man has made a MESS of this nation with plentiful and noticeable hatred. And that is not of God but of the devil stirring up man's feelings. One cannot walk by their feelings but by the Spirit. One's feelings is not fruit of the Spirit. Hatred is not a fruit or a gift of the Spirit. Besides, you can love the ones that you don't agree with, instead, that instigator the devil loves division and discord. One has to Vote not only for the soul of this nation but carefully decide where your souls land with the conclusion of this world. Is your soul worth hating your brother, under the law that's murder. And murderers have no place in the kingdom of God. Seek the Lord while he still can be found. Why can't we love one another the answer that "stinky" devil and some by their own free will want to?
Let's fall in love with Jesus and walk as He walked upon the earth. Let's vote Him as the true leader for our life here and in heaven. Today make a decision!!!
"Quit Fighting and Turn It Over to God"
Admit it!!! You have been fighting a losing battle. You want the bragging rights as to what you can accomplish with your own hands. Stop wanting all the accolades. God knows the thoughts that he has towards you, thoughts of good and not of evil to bring you to an expected end and destiny. Jeremiah 29:11. God knows the way, so stop fighting against yourself before you give yourself a knockout blow or throw the towel in the ring and stop the fight. The battle is the Lord's. Some are even wanting to fight each other over a vote or allegiance to a political party. God during this season wants us on one accord even if we don't see eye to eye on everything. Stop judging people before God starts judging you as you find fault with others. Hello God's people and the world none of us are perfect. Jesus will do His judgment when He returns, for His reward will be with him. The adversary is standing back laughing at the idea that it does not take much to punk some people. Hate is not of God. And yet this is prevalent even in Christendom. God did not create a superior human only one human race and a superior Savior.
At the start of the first church, people sold their goods so that everyone would not be in lack; and daily they broke bread and were in prayer. Acts 2: 40-47. Today this is how Jesus wants the church portrayed. Instead of being committed and united to combat a deadly virus after months of enormous deaths some don't believe it's real or have a desire to fight it by the simplest means of not wearing a mask or social distancing. Individuals will have to make a decision to stop fighting and turn the solution findings over to God and the medical professionals. people have consented to vaccines before and wearing masks. One would not want a physician to perform medical procedures without the correct protective wear. We all may not agree on the best proven methods; but God knows all. Trust in the Lord with all your heart,and lean not to your own understanding: in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3: 5-6.
If you want to know the status of your soul, all one has to do is find yourself in the Bible as unto obedience or unrighteous lawless behavior. An example is illustrated in Romans 1:18-32. Those who exchange the truth of God for a lie; and God gave them up to vile passions and their own abased minds. Before Jesus returns let him find you righteous. Find Him while there is still time.
Our probation time is almost spent. God's people are teaching the gospel by multiple methods. But there seems to be a limited response. It's been stated for years that the Lord shall return. This time it's more truth than fiction. The angels are positioned Jesus stands attentive to the command of the Father. Our fight is to inform as many people as we can that the Lord is on His way for the Second Advent. Fight the good fight of faith!!! Will you be ready when He comes?
One thing is certain, there is a date that we all are appointed to die. Or some will remain until Jesus returns. Either method; will Jesus find you fighting for the kingdom of God or fighting for your own will. If you're not seeking and fulfilling the will of God, then you are against Him?
01/15/23 Happy New Year!!!
There is going to be a fight to the death for the Bride of Christ. Christ has died that you may have life and life more abundantly. This is what Christ has done and He does all that He can, he wants none to perish. This year prepare your soul for the return of Christ. One may be working on certain projects or starting a new business, and there isn't anything wrong, but your main priority is knowing the state of your salvation. Keep moving forward by faith knowing the surety that the Second Advent is at hand.
