Hatred and Contempt

My Wife and I were sitting and watching the news of the devastating flooding taking place in and around the Houston area of Texas, needless to say it is terrible beyond what most can imagine. For those involved, this is a life changing event. So our prayers, the prayers of the saints of God, are with each and every one of those who are involved, from victim too first responder.

It is amazing that in the midst of all that is taking place in our great country, there can be such hate and contempt. You cannot deny that the President of our country is being attacked on every side, almost the same way it is said that the former president was being attack on every side. Their names are not important, their policies are not important, neither are their personal backgrounds important, we all have our good and our bad about us. The issue I am raising in this post is the “Hate and Contempt” that is taking place in our society. We may not agree with each others life style decisions, some being more abominable than others, or the color of their skin, or their financial class, educational back ground, or their religious or cultic affiliations, but to have so much hate and contempt one human being to another, is the sickness of sin that will and is tearing God’s great humanity apart. Romans 8:22, states, “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.” And this we know is under the weight of sin. While we that believe know that God is in complete control of all things seen and unseen, he still allows mankind, and each individual of it, to make their own decisions on how they will live their lives, and how they will treat each other. As times moves on we are seeing the decision of mankind to have hate and contempt for each other. This is the problem, because men do not love Jesus The Christ as their Lord and savior, but choose to hate him and all them that love him, they are left with a spirit of hatred that is past on, one human to another. I John 4:20 states,

“If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a  liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?”

Good question, right, sure it is. Or consider God’s word on contempt in the book of Proverbs 18:3,

“When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.”

Hatred from one person to another can only come of a wicked heart. Hatred is sin, and sin brings sickness and even death to the one that harbors it. If you hate someone and say you have no sin, you are a liar, and the truth is not in you. When you hate and have contempt for another, you destroy your self. If you profess to love God, as all true Christian do, you cut off your ability to communicate with God in prayer. With out forgiveness you cannot be forgiven, thus you can not pray and be heard by God. You then become spiritually sick. You lose your ability to have true joy, because how can a person with hate and contempt in their heart for another have true joy? You can’t. Your thoughts become preoccupied with the hatred and contempt of the other, and what you would like to do to rid yourself of that person. Whether we believe it or not, we as humans do not lack the control we need in thought or in deed without Jesus Christ in our lives. We will soon go on to think and do things we would never believe we would do. In the book of Jeremiah 17:9, God makes the statement, and then ask the question, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? He then goes on to answer the question in 17:10, “I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”

To all of you brains out there that believe these scriptures are dispensational, and that they don’t apply to you and your hatred and contempt for other people in this time, understand this, God’s teachings are dispensational, but his heart is eternal. Those that hate others will not have a place in God’s kingdom unless that hatred is repented of. In Titus 3:1-7, and in I Peter 2:12-17, the scripture expresses to the church how we are to perform our civic duties, and pray for our leaders, so when their doing wrong, we pray they will be led by the Lord and do right. We are not to take on the terrible ungodly habits of the unsaved society and wage internal warfare against civil authorities and leaders. Galatians 6:7 speaks concerning evil sowing, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” hateful people will in their judgement by God receive the just recompense for their reward.

Last but not least, hatred and contempt are consistent with that, that Satan has for God. Jesus when speaking to the jews of their spiritual dullness in St. John 8:44a stated, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do.” Hateful people are devilish people, unforgiving people, deceived people. The only answer to hatred and contempt in the heart, is forgiveness by the grace of God through Christ Jesus. To those of you who profess to be Christians, you must examine yourself. If you find hatred and contempt in your heart for anyone, you must repent. Re-visit what Paul the Apostle said to the church at Corinth in II Corinthians 5:17,

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

There is no place for “Hatred and Contempt” in the new creature of Jesus Christ.

Generals Need Help?

If The Generals in U.S. Military need help on further directives based on the Presidents decision about transgender personal not serving in any capacity in the military, I might be able to give them some help, after all , how hard can it be? This is my personal short list. First, Let them serve out the remaining part of their current enlistment, and then Honorably Discharge them. Second, give them the option of re-enlistment based on the gender they were born as, to be proven by a DNA test if necessary, after all, DNA don’t lie. If these brave men and women want to serve their country, it shouldn’t matter to them if they have to do it based on their natural sexual orientation.

God made male and female, and they are all perfectly capable in their individual roles, each one being just as important as the next. Just as in Christianity, and the church, God is not the author of  confusion, and neither is He in nature. The transgender mindset breeds confusion, and as we can see, brings on confusion no matter where it presents itself. What restrooms will be used by whom? Who has to pay for their sex change? My taxes? Why? I don’t even believe in the mindset, I’m a Christian. In their Basic Military Training, who will shower with who, or will the military have to pay for a third set of showers, unisex? Who rooms with who in the dorms? Men with men, women with women, or transgender with whom ever they want? Is the choice yours, or is it directed by the leaders? Watch yourself leaders, you might be causing more confusion. Is it yes ma’am, when it should be yes sir, or no ma’am when it should be no sir? These mistakes could become write-ups for young nervous recruits. What doctor sees what soldier, based on what parts of that soldier have or have not been removed or replaced?

I will end my help to the Generals with this. Based on the two photos above, the Generals in the U.S. military know the aircraft on the left is an A-10 Thunderbolt. The one on the right is an F-22 Raptor. Each of these aircraft have their specific role in the air. Keep in mind, we’re talking about the aircraft, and not the pilots that fly them. Based on their design, their parts are not enter-changeable, wings, engines, wheels, guns, etc., the engineers developed them in a specific way for a very specific purpose. If used out of their purpose it could mean trouble for those depending on them. But used in their purpose they become the ultimate fighting machines. I hope you the reader get my point. There is no confusion about the purpose of these aircraft, and there certainly should be no confusion when it comes to our troops in the military. If there is no confusion, why is there such discussions taking place? After all, a male is a male, a female is a female, an A-10 is a A-10 and a F-22 is an F-22. No confusion there!

Deviant Children

It is a shame that I have to introduce such a terrible subject matter into my blog format, but in light of the current direction our society is moving in, in general with our children, I feel it’s time I try to address the incomprehensible desire some in our society have to turn our youth into, “Deviant Children”. From individual families in communities all over the world, to the politics of United States, and all the way to the United Nations, there is a perverse need to cause our children to move away from the original intent God had for their lives. Even if  you don’t believe in the God who created the heavens and earth and all that dwells within them, like your children, you will find yourself giving account to that very God on the day of judgement, that I am sure you also don’t believe in, when it comes, and believe me, it is coming.

So first off, what is Deviant? It’s defined as departing from usual or accepted standards, especially in social or sexual behavior: “deviant behavior”, “a deviant ideology”. It has several synonyms, some being: abnormal, irregular, nonstandard, perverse, freakish, bizarre, warped kinky, and perverted. Of  course this definition only stands if you have not already succumb to the idea that it  means nothing in our new modern society, which rejects God as He who sets the standard of morality for all of creation.

This new society that says it loves its children, but pays more attention to its pets, “but watch out pets, your next”, but I digress, is moving in a direction that once traveled, will without God  not be able to return from. It, society, is turning its children over to be burned as in the sacrifices of Molech, for it’s own selfish pleasures and gain. What a terrible price it is going to be  paid. How can you have so much contempt and hatred for your children that you would expose them to the content of such social media as, Teen Vogue or Unicorn Booty? These sites and their content are the antipathies of the direction for good godly clean living which our kids really deserve. They throw back in the face of God, rebellion against his word of good stewardship for the children, and his desire to fellowship with them, even at a young age, Matthew 19:14. O, but that’s right they don’t believe in God, and neither is this a Christian nation, any more. Even the United Nations has its hands in the  raising of “Deviant Children”. Read this interesting article from “The New American” entitled, “The Global School Board”, dated 19 May 2003, and also, Comprehensive sexuality Education. This perversion of our kids has been coming for a long time.

The children at the time of the sacrifices to Molech didn’t have a choice of whether our not they wanted to be burned alive, their parents sacrificed them based on their own disobedience to God, the hardness of their hearts, and their becoming like the idol worshippers around them, which God warmed them of. But that’s right again, this nation, or many in it in 2017 do not believe in God. So neither are many of the parents giving the children a choice of whether they want to become deviants or not. We are casting them into the arms of these perverse people, lovers of themselves, idol worshippers, and the systems that be, and are not even looking back. Society doesn’t care. The church cares but are demonized at every turn, and I might add, this is why the church must live above reproach, which is possible through the power of The Holy Spirit. Jesus sent him to keep us, the believers, until his great return. We can not afford to be afraid of the faces we stand before when it comes to the protection of our children. If the system of Baal will stand against our kids, than we must stand against the system of Baal. God loves his humanity, and even those who will stand against Him. He gives all who will a chance to repent and be converted. That’s why He sent his Son Jesus to die on the cross for all of our sins, St. John 3:16, but read 17-21 also, they speak of a world in 2017, where people prefer darkness rather than light, so they can continue to do their evil deeds, and now even teach them to their children, so the generations to come will be deviant and unrepentant, and because of it, live in the doom of judgement at Jesus Christ great return, “whether you believe it or not”.

This is not the end, it has yet to come. Let us teach our children they are loved of God. And in their mind, body, and soul, He has a greater, purer, and more profound purpose for their lives. Deviance is and un-natural state of mind for God’s creation. You are not born that way. It is a learned behavior, taught by people who hate God, and the thought of him. There is an old saying, that “misery loves company”. These people who teach this deviance to our kids are miserable, mean, nasty, and hatful people, and this is what they want of the generations to come. They walk around with smiles on their faces as if all is well with them, but it is not. Their souls are dying inside so they want to past this slow death on to our children. let us not allow this to happen, lets stand together against them, and for our children. God will be our strength!

Ought To Be Ashamed

By now I hope as many as possible have seen the latest example of the shameful degradation of many, not all, but many of the youth in this great country. It needs to be seen so there can be no denile that there has been a great change in the morality of our children. I know there is nothing new under the soon, and disrespect and rebellion have been going on down through the ages. But I would hope that with the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and the presence of His spirit with us, that we would be more apt to teach our children how to conduct themselves, and also to know the consequences  of their actions. If you are not sure of what I am talking about, watch the following link, and if your are not totally disgusted at what you see, you have become part of the problem. http://fw.to/G5ZYVGV; The parents of this young man, our society, our schools, politicians, community organizers that make excuses for this heathenistic conduct, and last, but certainly not least, the Luke warm church, “Ought to be ashamed“. As we continue to ignore the state of our children, their rebellion towards their parents, their destructive nature in our society, their lack of education, and this not due to the access of legitimate schools, but more to the lack of proper parenting and in site, which allows the truancy level to sky-rocket every year, their lack of respect for other people and their property, we will see this kind of malignant, rampant, disgusting behavior take place. Our politicians can’t help because in their own curious way they conduct themselves just as hateful, mean , and nasty, as this young man did. The community organizers blame the past, (slavery and civil rights), lack of jobs, and education, for this behavior, but I must say, that’s a load of crap, lies from the pit of hell. How long are we going to deny the truth, even if you don’t believe it, there is a truth. “For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God”. So for the Luke warm church that preaches messages void of the word repentance, that entertains the youth with cross over, ” Gospel Music”, and gives them the freedom to come to Jesus however they want, without reverence, without understanding He is Holy, righteous and divine, we “Ought to be Ashamed“. These poor kids, boys and girls alike don’t have a chance, and won’t, if we don’t all get some shame. It should crush us to see these things take place. What is that truth I talked about? It’s the transforming power of Jesus Christ. If He be preached with love and true concern for the eternal souls of these youth they may have a chance. The true church, fearless adults and parents, and all that are responsible for raising up our youth must be led by the truth. No more hypocrisy and superficial attention, otherwise they are doomed to destroy themselves, and all around them, this would truly be shameful. Listen to the word of God, I John 2:28,  “And now little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming”.  Thank you for listening.

 

Psalm 37:23

Remorse?

I’d like to preface this post, with a dedication of this post to my Dad. It is based on a conversation we had, when The Lord had put it on my heart just to give him a call, you know, just to see how he was doing. Dad is eighty five, and doing well for his age, I can only hope I will be doing as well when or if I am blessed enough to reach his age. We shot the breeze for a while about how everyone was doing, and him being an avid RV’er, about his and my step-mothers, (of whom I must say is taking great care of him), up and coming trip to the coast of California. Without having to get too personal, we talked about the passing of my real mother, and how it came to pass, because of the condition of my Mother-in-law, whom I love dearly. I’ve been married to her daughter for thirty eight years, so I’ve known her for some almost forty years. It pains all of the family to see her going through the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s. We solicit your continued prayers, if you believe in the power of prayer through Christ Jesus. My dad was saying, as he often does, if the conversation goes in the direction, that he, like so many of us do, regrets some of the decisions he made in the past, and some of the things he had done. After he was done, I commented on the fact that, and we agreed, not letting go of the past breeds a since of “Remorse”. Remorse, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is a gnawing distress arising from a sense of guilt for past wrongs, and I will add, bad decisions. If you are not careful, remorse will not allow you to forgive yourself to the point you will find it impossible to find true peace in your life. It will eat at you, and the Devil, if you understand his reality, will use it as a weapon against you all of the remaining days of your life. This is the beauty of knowing Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. If you have sinned against Him or someone, the Word of God says, if you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive you of your sins, and to cleans you of all unrighteousness, I John 1:9. If you believe in God and His word, you can be freed of all “Remorse”, and move on in peace with your life. Satan is the accuser of the brethren, and he will us whom ever he can to accuse you, or remind you of your past wrongs. But God will not, He cast our repented sins into the pool of forgetfulness. If you then can’t forgive yourself, you exalt yourself above the throne of God, which is impossible, and you shall never find peace in your life. Thus the question mark after “Remorse” in the title. Do have “Remorse” in your life, are you full of it to running over? Are you incapacitated by it? If so, it is time for you to meet Jesus at the cross. He is there waiting to forgive your sins, save your soul, and remove your “Remorse”.

Thanks Dad for the great conversation! I love you very much.

Be Not Weary!

Galatians 6:9,”And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” This is Paul the Apostles encouragement to the saints of God in Galatia, and is my mine to the saints of God wherever you are today. It has become obvious that the family, friends, and/or foes, of the saints of God are having an increasingly difficult time watching us enjoy, the joys of our salvation, to the point that they have found it necessary to, in some of the most insidious ways, attack us, their so called loved ones. I call them “so called” because you would not think that if you loved someone you would treat them with such mal-contempt. These family, friends, and/or foes, we’ll call them (FFF’s) from here forward, think we don’t recognize the evil things they do to hurt the feelings of the saints of God. Like witches, they conjure up evil deeds to do against their own loved ones, in the hopes we will turn away from the joy of the Lord, which is our very strength. We who have determined to bow our knees before The true and living God, who have humbled ourselves under His mighty hand, and have offered up no ill-will to anyone. We have only wanted to love all peoples. This love, the love of God thru Christ Jesus, so many in the world and many of our FFF’s have rejected, so they attack us with their evil deeds, thinking we are to ignorant to see what they are doing. They are snide, vicious, and wicked in their thoughts. They smile in our faces while the venom of hatred for The Christ that is in us drips from their lips. But we are meek and not week. We know what they are doing. God would not bring us to this place of love and adoration for Him without giving us the insight and weapons to war against this evil, against this spiritual wickedness in high places that would come against us, this darkest of evil that hates everything we stand for. The Prophet Jeremiah 17:9&10, said by the way of a word from God, ” The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try tGalatians 6:9,”And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” This is Paul the Apostles encouragement to the saints of God in Galatia, and is my mine to the saints of God wherever you are today. It has become obvious that the family, friends, and/or foes, of the saints of God are having an increasingly difficult time watching us enjoy, the joys of our salvation, to the point that they have found it necessary to, in some of the most insidious ways, attack us, their so called loved ones.

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting”. Even if our FFF’s don’t believe in
God, that does not make Him null and void. The time cometh, ” That  at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:10&11. To you poor wicked people who have been deceived by old Satan to do the things you do against God’s elect, I give you in, book, chapter, and verse, from the Holy Bible, the authority of God for the saints to live our lives according to His every commandment. In  protecting  His people the Psalmist in 105:14&15, says,” He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophet no harm. To you our FFF’s, what is your authority, and from whom does it come from, and where is it written that you can do such evil and dastardly deeds towards the saints of God without fear of eventual condemnation from Him? Know this, the time cometh that we all will stand before God to receive our reward or condemnation. Repent and receive Jesus as your Lord and savior today, while there is yet a chance. He will forgive you of your sins and save you. Romans 10:13, ” For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. To the saints of God, His elect, His sanctified ones, be not weary in well doing for in due season ye SHALL reap if you faint not.

Tossed Like Waves

IMG_2523I have learned  in the last twenty-five years of my black life, those twenty-five years being saved by the grace of God, that the only real black experience is the experience that I have with God through His son Jesus, The Christ. When I was ignorant of my purpose in this life, which was to become an eternal life, I aligned myself with things I thought were purposeful, things that friends and society said were important. Even in my young Christian days I was still bound by some of those old thoughts and ways. As I have matured as a Christian, my desire is that my thoughts will become inline with what God says is right. If I continue to listen to the black self-proclaimed problem solvers, community leaders, professors, and worst of all, the Reverends, Pastors, Bishops, and so-called eloquent speakers like Louise Farrakhan, who are themselves still bound in their own ways an thoughts about their own black experiences, and the unfortunate experiences of our fore-fathers, I found I would never break free from the bondage of the past. I would always be defining my life by the experiences of those who have passed on long before me. Those who really in their time had a black experience that we today, who have never experienced the pain an sorrow of their time, can’t truly understand. It’s a shame that the blacks, or African-Americans, of today will hold on to, and walk around with a cheap on their shoulder about something that many of them have never experienced. The youth of today, even in the church, are being taught to carry a grudge over things they cannot even begin to understand. The “Black Lives Matter” movement, is a selfish movement that disregards all others because of the color of their skin. This new Black Experience has now become a racist experience, a separatist experience, where no other life matters except, Black Lives. Sounds to me like its time for repatriation. This movement when it is preached in the church is known as, “Black Liberation Gospel”, and what a pile of crap it is. It’s no more than black racism being disguised as some form of,” only for blacks Christianity”. Its time for the Black/African Americans in the church to get wise to the tricks Satan is playing on them. If we really want to know the truth, and to have a real life experience, no matter what color we are, we had better seek God and His righteousness. In the Holy Bible, in the book of James 1:5-8, the scripture states, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways”. Its one thing for the un-saved blacks in society to be unstable and “Tossed Like Waves” in the sea, but for the Christians, or professed Christians, this is unacceptable, no matter what color you are. The church has to set the example of being a stable minded people, a people that can pray and effect change in the world with their answered prayers. Its, (the churches) people, no matter what color they are, that cannot conduct themselves like the heathen, (un-saved), of the world. We must regard all men with respect, for God Himself is not a respect of persons. With God, all lives matter. So to you black christians that are caught up in this emotional mess, it would behoove you to seek God for wisdom about what you are doing, whether it is right, or wrong. I am sure you will find it is wrong, and you are being driven with the winds of an angry and ignorant society, and “Tossed Like Waves” in the sea of and untoward humanity. Paul The Apostle when speaking to the church of Corinth in his second epistle to them said, when enjoining them to separate themselves from evil associations, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord”. Let us, the Blacks/African Americans in the church not be “Tossed Like Waves”, but let us be still like the storms that are calmed by the presence of Jesus, and live ourlives in peace with all humanity.
