Ghost of the Church

Where is the Church? I mean really. Where are you people of God?!? Are you sitting on your back sides while others of the world are taking everything over? Where are those who will stand up for their faith? Where are those who will stand up for God? I’ll tell you they’re not here in America. No, they are in ….. Getting their heads cut off because they will not bow down to those who are against God. http://www.military.com/video/operations-and-strategy/battles/syrian-rebels-behead-christians/2525038454001/ Young and old, men and women. They have taken the stand against evil. Those are the ones who are winning souls. American Christians are boo- hooing about the things going on around them instead of standing on the Word. We have churches allowing gays to be married http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/11/politics/btn-same-sex-marriage/ let alone “teaching the word” now says it’s ok to be gay. We have so called men of God sexually abusing those in their church. We have people being harassed for not complying to gays. http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/city-threatens-to-arrest-ministers-who-refuse-to-perform-same-sex-weddings.html Which (the gays) is supposed to be a minority? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/15/health-survey-americans-gay_n_5587696.html We have people pushing for abortions. http://www.numberofabortions.com/ And the list could go on and on. It probably will.
When will the true Christians of this country stand and say enough. I’m not trying to promote hate. I’m not trying to promote anger. I’m trying to promote love back to God. Throughout all of this turmoil He still loves us. We Christians are not supposed to get along with this world. We are supposed to show Christ’s love to our neighbors and to God. We are instead hiding our eyes and ears like ostriches. Sticking our heads in the sand while the world takes over. There will soon be nothing too outrageous for anyone. The standards of people have gone so far down that it will take many generations to climb back to the straight and narrow path. But it only took a couple of generations to get here.

The crime rate has gone up across the country with the introduction of extreme islam, and isis. Whether people like to admit it or not, we in a spiritual war and have been for some time. But the world will tell you it is more important to concentrate on the color of a persons skin http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/us/ferguson-shooting-protests or what we call our children http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/10/09/gender-inclusive-school-district-says-drop-boys-and-girls-call-kids-purple/ The government isn’t really concerned with your health unless you’re giving them thousands upon thousands of dollars. They’re not concerned with making more jobs. Because since they have taken over the academics of our country the education of our children has gone to pot. http://www.broadeducation.org/about/crisis_stats.html Oh yeah, there another subject. Let’s look at the drugs that are now legal which would have gotten you thrown in jail just a few years ago. http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-great-marijuana-experiment-a-tale-of-two-drug-wars-20140103 If, we as a Church, don’t start right now and make up our minds, hearts and souls, to stay with God rather than away from him, all will be lost to evil. I hear people say that this country was founded on Christian beliefs. Where are those beliefs now?

Let’s Not Talk About That

I get so irritated when I hear people say, “Not to get too spiritual about it.”When talking about a subject at hand.  Especially when I hear, a pastor says it.  As if, people are to be offended by being spiritual.  When all Christians (should) know that, everything leads to spirituality.  Everything we do here on Earth affects our spiritual realm.  Whether it is your words, or actions, or lack of.  If a Christian actually reads his /her Bible, they should know to stand by faith with all they say and do.  Or stand by faith on what they don’t say or do.  God is listening and watching and His angels keep watch also and report to Him.  Psalm 91:1-13 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.  Surely He shall deliver you from the snare and fowler And from the perilous pestilence.  He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.  You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, No of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.  A thousand my fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.  Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.  Because you have made the Lord who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you , Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.  In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.  You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.  Did you catch that part: To keep you in all your ways?  They are to make sure that you stay on the path that you are to go.  I do not believe that if they see you walk away that they will take it upon themselves to decided how to handle things.  I think they report to God what has happened and ask Him how it is that they should handle things.  For He is all-knowing and they are not.  For they have been given authority to protect you but they have not been given all authority.  Buy do you see this is all spiritual?  That what happens to you here on the Earth affects things in Heaven? I think that if people would keep this in the forefront of their thoughts they would be able to bite their tongues more offend than not.  I know that I fall into that category.  Too many times I have said things that I later regret because it was not of scriptural flow but of worldly thoughts.

Are You At War Within Yourself?

There’s a war inside of me. Between who I want to be. There’s a war inside of me. Between who I want to be and who I am.  These are lyrics to a song by Todd Agnew.  If you ever get a chance to listen to it with your spirit, I’m sure that you will find yourself saying that it’s true.  We battle within ourselves everyday. So no, you’re not crazy or have multiple personalities. Trying to decide on whether or not we are doing something for God’s glory or if we are glorifying ourselves.

We can understand better when we read in Romans 7:14-25  Paul explains that we all have sin dwelling within us.  But that, how we wield it is the important thing.  Read verse 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.  If we can learn to practice doing good, we will in turn be becoming more Christ like.  We all seem to have areas in our lives that have a hard time grabbing a hold of.  They can eat at you.  The whole time you do it you’re thinking about how you shouldn’t be doing it or the feeling of guilt comes over you after you’re done.

My own confession of this will come later: two weeks from now.

As I have said before, we will have to give an account for our actions.  Matthew 12:36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. When reading that do not think that it is only words.  For remember actions speak louder than words.  Our actions, are due to what we have traveling through that mind of ours.  1 Peter 1:13  Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;  

What you see; what you hear gets put into your mind.  What is in your mind, gets put into your heart. Now I don’t believe in hypnosis.  Say what you will, but I think that those people (if they truly are hypnotised) are weak spirited people. But have you ever heard of those tapes that one puts on at night and listens to as they fall asleep.  Some of them talk about how beautiful you are, others try to curb your eating.  But if you think about it, when you listen to anything long enough you will believe the words that are being spoken.

So what war do you have battling you?  Are you one who thinks you can handle it on your own?  Are you seeking help for it?  If so, is the help you’re seeking from God or man?  Because remember he has a war of his own.
