“Pray About It More Than You Talk About It”

1 Peter 5_7 Cast cares

Most people would agree that a garbage dump is where trash, waste, rubbage and refuse are discarded as useless materials. It is where dead, decaying and noxious things are found.

Some people are virtual garbage collectors. They collect rubbish, waste and noxious things and attempt to dump them off on us the first chance that they get. They can’t speak to us three seconds without dumping some mess onto us that they collected from someone else. They have been busy since early in the day collecting bits of stinky, smelly, rotten, rancid and putrid garbage [i.e. gossip, bad news, worries and fears] and now their hearts are ripe and full to burst forth onto us if we would but lend them an ear to hear what juicy things they have to say.

It is no wonder that those of us who are the saints of God and who are praising the Lord do not want to spend too much time in the company of those who always seem to be full of rotten, sickly, disturbing and discouraging conversation.  Their spirit is contrary to our Spirit. Their atmosphere is thick with the smell of decay, death, hopelessness, anxiety, faithlessness and pain. Their attitude is one where they feel that it is our obligation to have them dump all of the mess that they have collected onto us. We are just supposed to stand there and take it. To do otherwise would make us a bad person or an unsympathetic person or a person not interested in the stinky, smelly trash that is being offered as news to us.

And if we are so unfortunate as to become engaged in their delusional ranting and garbage slinging; if we allow the aroma of their putrid conversation to get into our spirit, then our spirits will smell like theirs and our whole hearts will be tainted from the experience.

let go

Now you are agitated, irritated, frustrated, upset, argumentative, combative, easily insulted and short tempered all because someone dumped their sickening garbage on you and infected you with their illness. Now you are spiritually sick.

Protect Your Peace! Protect Your Spirit! Protect the Anointing!

Here is a suggestion for lovingly addressing those who seem to market in trashy, newsy, stinky dead things.  Maybe they don’t know any better or maybe they think that they are doing someone a service by repeating the troubles and tribulations of others.  Therefore, offer them the sweet perfume of prayer and end their nauseating conversation with the divine medication of faith filled prayer.

Prayer changes-things-black

Sometimes talking about a problem is needed.  There are times when talking and sharing can help heal and decompress really stressful and burdensome situations.  However, be careful that Christian counseling and faith sharing doesn’t turn into just another garbage dumping expedition. Carefully evaluate what is being said.  Listen to the Holy Spirit that dwells inside of you.  If the Holy Spirit is grieved by the conversation, this is your best indication that something unholy is in the midst.  Be sure that it is not garbage that is being dumped on you. Guard your divine Spirit from the atmosphere, smell and stain of unbelief found in the refuse of sinful human gossip, speculation, worry, waste, fear and ultimately unbelief.

Pray!

Prayer Changes Things, People and Circumstances.

PRAY!!!

Psalm-55_4-8-22 Cast Cares on Lord 1

Don’t become a garbage collector nor a person who dumps garbage on others.  But instead, become a prayer facilitator and assist someone in discovering that they can cast all their cares on the LORD in prayer for He cares for them.  We only make things worse by talking too much about it .  Ultimately, God is the only One in control and He is the only One who can do anything about the mess that we are talking about anyway.  Give it to Him.  He is the only One who can work a miracle in the middle of a mess.

Finally Free To Preach (Taken From The “Bishop’s Corner”)

2-timothy-4-2-preach-the-word-blue_581584627

We are living in the age of the prophetic. That is to say THE END-TIME where what was prophesied regarding man’s rebellion against God and His divine order is coming to pass in our lifetime.  (Unlike what the false prophets call the prophetic) There is no time left.  The kingdom of God is literally at hand.  And it is the Kingdom message that I am totally concerned with.  I sleep, eat, drink, talk, think, dream, walk the message of Repentance, Obedience and Submission. God is the BOSS.  And I am happy to work for Him.  There is nothing mankind can do for me that my God cannot supply. The Lord has provided and continues to provide.

I was once a slave to religion, denominationalism, theology, societal trends and political correctness. But I have been set free by the TRUTH. I am free and I am never going back into slavery again. Although my way may be rough, I have joy. Although my friends may be few, I have a better friend in Jesus. Although I live in poverty, I am rich in the Kingdom of God. I have the hope of eternal life in Christ Jesus because I do those things that please God and bring Him Glory. I have no love for the world for the love of the world is enmity against God. My eyes are cast toward Heaven where my treasures are stored.

I thirst but water doesn’t quench my thirst. I hunger but food doesn’t satisfy me. My flesh and my heart fail but medicine doesn’t revive me.  God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Hallelujah.  Amen!

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE – “THERE IS A TIME TO WALK AWAY”

The Master's Table

“The kindness and Love of God saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal (baptism in water in Jesus’ name) and through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit whom He gave us generously through Christ our Savior…” (Titus 3:4-6 – paraphrased)

“…But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and strife and disputes about this Divine and Eternal Law, for disputes are unprofitable and worthless. Reject a factious (argumentative) person after a first and second warning. You can be sure that such a person is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.” (Titus 3:9-11)

“…and whoever does not believe (obey, trust and submit to the Ways and Word of God) is judged already, because he does not believe in The Name of The Only Begotten Son of God.” (John 3:18)

bar47

Ministers of God’s Saving Truth should continue to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God and God’s Eternal Law of Salvation regardless of oppositions and challenges.

However, when challenged about God’s Eternal Way and Word, don’t get caught up in arguments and quarrels. Allow for the Truth to be proclaimed twice, but after that, walk away. They who argue and disagree with God’s Word have no interest in being saved but only in establishing their own philosophies, discrediting your witness and perverting the message of the Kingdom of God. By insisting upon their sinfulness, they have also insisted upon their own condemnation.

Walk Away.

“This Little Light of Mine”–A SABBATH DAY MESSAGE

This Little Light of Mine

I don’t know whether you’ve thought of this or not. But everyone wants to be viewed favorably and in the best possible light. No one wants their dirty past and former mistakes brought up at every opportunity. Nobody wants their failings and shortcomings to cast a shadow over their bright sunny day. If at all possible, everyone wants to be known at their best. And everyone wants to be remembered when they were on top of things and at their zenith of integrity, character and success. No one wants to be known or remembered as a loser, a failure or a miserable and distressed human being. Everyone wants to be known in their most positive light. Everyone desires to be viewed in a complimentary way.

As I pondered these thoughts, it occurred to me that Christians are challenged and commanded to let our lights so shine among men that they may see our “good works” and glorify The Father which is in Heaven.

We are to “shine” brightly in our deportment, language and attitude regardless of the tribulations or circumstances that we are going through so that the Father is glorified.

This is “good works.”

We are to let our holiness, our trust in God, our obedience to God’s commandments and our confidence in God’s promises shine through our stormy weather and wilderness experiences so that the world may see our “good works” and see how glorious and awesome our God is to us.

This is “good works.”

We are to make the Sacrifice of Praise and we are to honor Father God in the Name that is exalted above every name so that the world may attest to the fact that Jesus Christ is LORD to the Glory of God the Father.

This is “good works.”

This little light of mine, I am going to let it shine.

How is your light shinning today?

A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE

The Master's Table

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you.” (Isaiah 26:3)

bar47

The reason that some of us are not at peace and the reason that some of our spirits are so abrasive, agitated, frustrated, tense and combative is because of what is on our minds or what we have allowed to fill your thoughts.

But today

I COMMAND YOU TO STOP IT IN THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS! BECOME GOD CONSCIOUS! KEEP YOUR MIND STAYED ON THE PROBLEM SOLVER AND NOT THE PROBLEM!

REPENT!

“Are You As Smart As The Devil?”– A Sabbath Day Message

Satan comes angel of light

Let me tell you how smart, sleek and ingeniously clever the devil is.

[The pronouns used in this post are meant to be understood as referring to the devil and his ministers.]

bar47

“She” will ease up to you and pretend to be interested in being your friend. Now once she become your friend or once she has your confidence or once she has gained your attention, she then begins to go to work on you.

“He” will patiently listen to your most private thoughts and encourage you in your most tearful times. He will be there for you whenever you need him.”

“They” will give you money, stroke your ego and take your side in a disagreement, especially if it brings them closer to you.

“She” has no real concern for righteousness or your soul. Her main concern is to manipulate you into accepting her as your friend. It is only a bonus for her, if in the process of her deception, you fall in love with her and take her as a lover, a comforter and a companion.

We barely, if ever, notice the subtle way in which she is always agreeing with us whether we are right or wrong. We barely, if ever, notice the way she has made us see life through her eyes; adopting her attitudes towards parents, laws, God, Salvation, Obedience, Purity, Blessings, Heaven, Hell, Righteousness and the genuine fear of God. We barely, if ever, realize how far we have drifted away from our God, our godly parental example, our moral consciousness, our sense of honor and respect for our parents and elders and those who would gladly lay down their lives for us.

Yes! We barely, if ever, notice the changes that have taken place in our lives, in our nature and in our character because of our relationship with her. (1 Corinthians 15:33)

Yes! The devil is powerfully deceptive and he has had millennia and time immemorial to perfect his skills, talents and lying nature. God created him and gifted him with matchless beauty, wisdom and knowledge.  He was one of the bright morning stars numbered around the throng of God.  The Bible says that he transformed himself into an angel of light.  She is never who she appears to be.

One of Satan’s most insidious attacks and deceptions is to turn a heaven bound soldier into a hell bound sinner by pretending to be their friend.

He does this subtly through our human need for companionship; through those whom we love; through those whom we trust; through those whose opinions we value, through those whose company we keep.

Let’s be honest about this.  Without God’s help, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between friend and enemy. 

Now I can’t speak for you but I am not as smart as the devil.  I need God.  I need a savior!  I need the One who created the devil to protect me from the devil.  And I know that His protection Is Sure.  His Blood Has Never Lost Its Power.  His Name Is A Shelter for the Righteous.  He can’t be defeated!  He never fails!  His very Word is so powerful that when He speaks, His Word produces His will and always returns to Him fulfilled.

If you want the Word of God to dwell in you richly, if you want access to the most powerful weapon known to man, if you want a superb lie detector, a deception destroyer and a life protector and eternal soul keeper, then I strongly recommend Christ Jesus our Lord!

REPENT!

[Pray this prayer with me.]

“Lord please forgive us when we choose friends that lead us away from you.  Please forgive our trespasses.   We want you, our Father, to choose our friends for us for you know who is best for us.  Help us to live so that we may be the godly choice that someone else may choose for their friend.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen!”
