Who are you….. really?

6a00e554e887238833016766def001970bIf you ask, many Americans will say they are a Christian. You can meet two people, one living a carnal worldly life; the other a hyper religious life and both will profess to be a Christian. How is this possible? One has to begin to wonder, what is a Christian, really? Is the term “Christian” passe’? After all according to, at least American culture, one can be a Christian no matter what they believe. It is acceptable to pick which parts of the bible you agree with and leave the rest. You can even add to the bible your own beliefs and no one can judge you. After-all, it’s your spiritual journey and who is anyone to tell you what is right, right?

Sadly, this is where years of compromise has led us. The bible is at the mercy of man’s interpretation and therefore can mean whatever any individual decides or wants it to mean. Is this Christianity? Is this acceptable to God? Well it’s time we go to the bible and see what The Word of God says about this definition or is the bible the authority any longer? I’m happy to say it truly is to God and His true disciples. As a matter of fact I no longer feel great about saying I’m a Christian, lately I say I’m a disciple of Jesus Christ because there a so many people saying they are without taking it seriously.

There is still a remnant of true believers in The Kingdom of God who believe in The Word of God, Holiness and obedience to Him. I pray that all of us who call ourselves Christians, believers, and/or disciples of Christ would go back to scripture. I pray that we would earnestly pray, fast and study; not just poach out a few scriptures that we can twist to confirm what we already want to believe. I pray that we would examine ourselves (lifestyles and choices) against scripture, inviting the Holy Spirit to show us the world and its ugliness and how we are to relate to this world as disciples of Christ. We can’t have our cake and eat it too. We cannot justify being in love with the world and all it’s indulgences and profess The Kingdom of God. The two do not mix. The question is are you a disciple of Culture or a disciple of Christ, you must choose… Let us all look in the mirror and let the examination begin!! Only use the bible as your standard, not some book a guy wrote or a message from the latest popular televangelist. It’s time to get real about your faith. Let’s start with your conversion story, how and when did you come to Christ?

Watch new cable show, “Wicked Lies for SEX”

240_F_70206974_OesszIEbPIFVZ5lmvGS5Xac3NjkQzxED

There is a new show coming out about a narcissistic, highly intelligent sophomore college student who seduces a group of high school boys to form a club to see who can get the most elementary school girls to sleep with them. What these naive boys think is just a fun dare turns out to be a secret underground sex trade and once you are in, there is no way out… Crimson is a Senior with honors and has to choose between his addiction to sin, secrets and pleasure or risking everything to do the right thing.

Hey why not?confused  It would fit right in with all the other shows that outwardly promote sin and mock Christ, like:

  • Californication
  • Shameless
  • The Affair
  • Masters of Sex
  • Gigolos
  • House of Lies
  • Polyamory (Married & Dating)
  • 7 Deadly Sins
  • Scandal
  • Power
  • Sister Wives

Have you noticed there is no longer a good guy and bad guy, it’s bad or really bad guy. Satan is not even trying to be subtle any longer, he’s just all out there with it and America is eating it up. It’s no wonder between sin infested Hollywood, kicking God out of our schools, government and churches (yes I said churches!) and promoting sexual immorality and killing babies, why our community and culture are a mess!!! The really sad thing is many so-called professed Christians are the audience who help keep these ratings up for these shows. Then we have to hear from spiritually ignorant people over and over say, “Let people do what they want, as long as it’s not hurting anybody.” Can someone define HURT for me please? Does that mean as long as I’m not shot between the eyes with a double-barreled shotgun? Is our culture so dumb these days that we have forgotten that no man is an island, what one does or does not do, sooner or later affects those around him; even if the effect is slow and does not manifest until generations later? That is exactly what has happened. This toleration of sin has been a slow fade for decades and here we are…

sick-smiley

Only God can get us out of this mess. Those of you whose eyes are open and see the truth, please pray for discernment always, knowledge, wisdom and courage to speak out against sin. We have to love people enough to share the whole true gospel of Jesus Christ with them, not just the ear tickling parts. Would the REAL believers please stop participating in the strategies of the enemy and stand up for Christ?!!! How long will you waver between two opinions? Choose this day whom you will serve.

1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came near to all the people and said,

How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.

Matthew 6:24

No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

1 John 2:15-17

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

BTW: I totally made up that show, it’s not real. Just an example of how easy it is to think up smut…

Lord please help us!

Only Happiness and Positivity allowed!!!♥

We live in a culture now where everyone is trying to focus only on positivity and happiness. Well, that can work against you if you are not careful. A well balanced productive person and/or great leader is one who is aware of the strengths and weaknesses not only of themselves, but also those on their team. In other words, we must look at the negatives or our weaknesses and have the wisdom to use them to our advantage and reach our goals.

positive-quotes1

annoyedI see posters like this circulating all around social media and it sounds like it makes sense, but it is simply not biblical.  Not only do we need to face the uncomfortable and hard things about ourselves, but we also are called to deal with difficult and sinful people. Jesus spent most of his time with the sick, poor and even His enemies. I do not believe it was predicated on them to “lift Jesus higher.”confused

We must be careful not to let the humanistic brainwashing strategies of the culture influence our mentality and attitudes as believers and disciples of Christ. We have to remember that we are called the Body Of Christ for a reason. We compliment one another. God uses our weaknesses/negatives as well as strengths/positives for His glory. He said His strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:8-10). That goes against everything the world teaches! Yes we are to look on the bright side and think on good things, although, we also are called to examine ourselves, face our sinful nature and trust God to cover us where we have no control over our deficiencies. We are called to deal with the broken hearted, unlovable, the poor, the weak, the hungry, the downtrodden, etc… That does not sound like a bunch that will lift me higher, I must look to Christ to lift me higher. Of course, God will also bring encouragers in our life. He gives us those brothers and sisters in Christ who lift our spirits, but that does not mean we neglect or reject those who can offer us nothing. Remember, in all things we must rely on The Holy Spirit to give us balance and wisdom. A negative + a positive can = a positive! Therefore, do not be quick to hop on the Positive/Happy Train with the world. We need The joy of The Lord to sustain us and “lift us higher”, not this trendy positivity and happiness that is fleeting.

Watch!!♥

God is happy with my sin because it makes me happy and God is love… HUH?!!!!

It really breaks my heart that so many people are deceived in thinking they can claim God and/or Jesus and make up their own rules and lifestyle. Many truly believe that Jesus is pleased with their sin, that they are right with him and are headed for heaven. In the name of this false love and Jesus they have created, they believe as long as they are happy, everything is okay.

Be not wise in your own eyes, fear The Lord and turn away from evil. -Proverbs 3:7

They think they are wise, but they are foolish. Foolish in rejecting the one who created them.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. -Proverbs 1:7

Those of us who know Him and know the truth, should feel sorrow for the lost souls who reject Him and His way. Although, we must proclaim to them that they cannot claim His name and live in sin. We must not shrink back as the world bullies us into keeping our mouth shut. Satan is the author of this campaign, to make every believer fearful of preaching and proclaiming Christ and Him crucified, for our sins, that we may be saved from sin and death. The world is becoming more and more hostile against those who truly preach, live, and teach what the bible says and will not conform to this world. Those of us who have made a decision and declaration that the Word of God is living and life and we will not turn from it are being marginalized. People need to hear that they are not safe in making up their own goulash of spirituality and calling it Jesus or God. They have created for themselves a false Christ.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. -Matthew 24:24

Believers!! We must be like Ezekiel, a watchman on the wall warning that the enemy is active, deceitful and here to kill, steal and destroy!! Do not let the world trick you into being silent. Loving others many times will necessitate truth that they do not want to hear. God did not say, “Do not preach the gospel if they do not want to hear it…” We must not go away in shame and silence.

fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10

We cannot be ashamed of the gospel. Pray, ask, seek, knock and God will grant you courage and boldness.

Forget a fifth grader, are you smarter than God?

There is no wisdom and knowledge that is more life changing than that of our Lord’s. When you spend time in prayer and study in His word, you are training yourself to live an enriching and Godly life and how to impart that enrichment to others. God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts higher than our thoughts. You cannot give people what you do not have yourself. Be a student of, a sister and a brother of Christ, that you may truly be a blessing to others. Try to never give people your carnal or worldly wisdom or advice, it profits them nothing. Instead find out what God says about every situation. #Bible #JesusKnowsBetter #StudyTheBible #KinleyPink #InspirationalPink ♥

Lies are fun and exciting. We love lies!

Everyone knows, lies are fun. Oh sure we all say we want truth, but deep down we would rather have a lie. Lies bring fantasy, mystery, and no responsibility into our dull, mundane lives; at least for a season. We will even curse someone out and go off when they try to disturb our lie with the truth. Yes, our lips will say without hesitation, “just be honest with me.” Although, the moment someone is honest we get angry and want to see them suffer or die…lol  A husband can’t tell his wife, “honey I haven’t been physically attracted to you because you’ve gained 60lbs since we were married and your chin has whiskers now. Can we work on you losing a little weight and getting your chin waxed?” He is forced to live in the lie, to keep things falsely peaceful.

That is what lies bring, a false sense of peace on the surface, while there is an undercurrent of chaos brewing. As you can imagine, lies are very deceitful, the longer the lie is repeated, it starts to become our truth. That brings us to something extremely dangerous, a lie wrapped in truth. This is the epitome of self deception. A world people live in everyday. The lie is so latent with sprinkles of truth, you can’t even tell it’s a lie anymore. When a lie and truth begins to look similar it’s called deception. You are no longer trying to decipher truth from  lies, but trying to decipher what is true and almost true. This is a dangerous tricky phenomenon. It is happening everyday in our churches. The average christian has no discernment between what is truth, lies, real or fake. It leaves the average professed believer in Christ to start mixing all kinds of opposing beliefs with their Christianity and thinking it’s perfectly ok.

What a sad case in God’s Kingdom. The moment we start trying to mix truth with lies, it is no longer truth and now we are living the lie. We are deceived into thinking our mixture of Christianity, New Age, Buddhism, The Occult, Mysticism, Islam, Divination, Catholicism, Gnosticism, Universalism, and many other oppositional theologies of the The Cross of Jesus Christ is acceptable to God Almighty. Well I’m here to proclaim to you in love for you as my sisters and brothers and through the power of The Holy Spirit, it is NOT acceptable and never will be. You cannot have your cake and eat it too. Either you are a follower of Christ, His disciple or you are not. If you have chosen to follow Christ, you must renew your mind with His precious word and denounce all these other satanic belief systems that draw you away from the pure unadulterated truth of God’s word and The Living Word, Jesus Himself.  You can use the word “God”, but you are not following the biblical God. You have created for yourself another God, another Jesus.

Also, I need to tell you, it is nothing more than our pride that leads us to all these false belief systems. We like to think we are humble, but we are not. Rather than submit to The One True God of the bible, His Son Jesus Christ and the written word, we would rather subconsciously choose our own God and make up our own religion; that way, we are still in control and can pat ourselves on the back. In conclusion, I pray this day that you will begin to think about what you actually believe and if it is not completely and fully Jesus Christ of the bible and Him crucified, repentance from your sin, choosing to follow Christ that you may have everlasting life, believing you have a real enemy (satan) trying to keep you from the truth of Christ, etc… If this is not what you believe when you call yourself a Christian, then please stop calling yourself a Christian, you are nothing more than a spiritualist. You want to tap into the spirit realm without submitting to Christ. God gives us free will as human beings, you are free to worship whomever you want, but do not call yourself a Christian when you do not believe in what the bible teaches. Christian does not mean “good person”, it means to be a follower of Christ or to be Christ-like. Christ would never incorporate New Age, Universalist, Gnostic or any other false doctrine into His Father’s Kingdom because then He would be part of The Lie and Christ only comes in The Truth of His Word. It’s time to stop mixing the clean with the unclean (Leviticus 10:10) if you are a true follower of Christ. Either you believe in the truth of the whole bible or you don’t. Picking and choosing what you will tolerate from God’s word just leaves you with a lie. You will not see the full power of God in your life if you continue on this path of mixing.

[googlea2baf3f8cbf2cd14.html]The Temple of the Living God -2 Corinthians Chapter 6

17 Therefore go out from their midst,

    and be separate from them, says the Lord,
and touch no unclean thing;
    then I will welcome you,
18 and I will be a father to you,
    and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty.”

Do not be deceived people. We are in a great time of deception and there is a mixture of biblical teaching and false doctrines being propagated. Don’t drink the kool-aid. I pray that The Holy Spirit will open your eyes and ears to the truth of God and His word and give you supernatural discernment, that you may walk in love and truth. It’s not enough to be “spiritual”, you’d better make sure you are in fellowship with The True Holy Spirit. Below I have gathered some scripture and reference materials for you to study on your own. Be blessed.♥

The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age -Matthew Chapter 24

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a] these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

1 Timothy 2:5New King James Version (NKJV)

For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,

1 John 4:1New King James Version (NKJV)

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
