A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE – "THERE IS A RIGHTEOUS HATRED"

Cannot Be Friends With Some People

 

The world wants us to believe that we should only hate those who they tell us to hate and love those who they tell us to love.  The world teaches and rewards those who learn and endorse its demonic doctrines and immoral practices and traditions.  The world is selling a pseudo-Christianity that ignores GOD’S Ten Eternal Ten Commandments and celebrates and idolizes the god of this world and her false religions that are sometimes referred to as “One World Religion.”  The world is run by Satan and her demons and there isn’t any truth in her nor does she love and obey GOD.  The world loves, celebrates, endorses and legalizes the very things that God hates and abhors.

1 John 2:15-17 tells us to…
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

IS THERE A GLITCH IN YOUR MATRIX?

Redeem the time post

Sometimes people don’t mean you any harm. They just don’t mean you any good either. It is not personal for them. They are just being themselves.

However, if being themselves translates into them being your enemy or someone that you need to avoid, so be it.

Be thankful that you discovered this glitch in your matrix of life before you wasted any more of your limited lifetime and resources investing in someone who makes you unhappy and who may even contribute to your destruction.

Come out from among them and be ye separated!

It may not be personal for them but it is personal to you.  It is your time and life on the line. Guard them jealously.  Ultimately, they are all that you really ever have.

Don’t waste them.

No One Understands Us Like God

TRUTH GOD UNDERSTANDS

Sometimes all you need is for someone to really understand and appreciate what you are dealing with and the struggles you have had to overcome and are overcoming everyday. You don’t want their money or their praises. You just want their understanding.

But…

Sometimes friends don’t understand what you are going through.

Sometimes family members are oblivious to your grief, inner sufferings and pains.

Sometimes your pastor cannot relate to what you are struggling with.

Sometimes your spouse doesn’t understand you.

The only one who really understands us is the One who made us – Jesus Christ. And He upholds us by His Word of Power. (Hebrews 1:1-4)

There is not a friend like Jesus!  He knows all about struggles and He will comfort and guide ‘till the day is done. Jesus is our only true friend.  Amen! Amen!!

God Understands!

“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!”

“Jimmy, Raymond And Their Sick Friend”– A Sabbath Day Message

black boys 2

Jimmy Carolina and Raymond Shaw and I became friends years ago. And while we were children, we had different beginnings but we became tight friends, at least that’s how I feel about us.

I seemed to have always had asthma or some kind of breathing problem that kept me sidelined a lot during my very early years.

When we were about 12 years old, Jimmy, Raymond and I, set out on an adventure without our parents’ knowledge or permission. On one Sunday evening after church and dinner, Jimmy, Raymond and I rode our bicycles about 3-5 miles outside of Mayesville. We took a secondary road that carried us by Raymond and Jimmy’s former residences as they now lived in town.

While cycling, I had an asthma attack and had to stop and then it struck me that I was the only one that couldn’t breath and we were miles from town out in hot, humid conditions, surrounded by cotton fields and corn fields and no one knew where we were. I had brought my inhaler but it wasn’t enough. So we stopped riding our bikes and walked the rest of the way home—only riding for short moments when I felt up to it.

These guys could have left me down that old farm road but they stuck with me until we made it .home.

Although life and years have separated us, there is still a shared bond that we have even to this day.

As I thought about the experiences we have shared as boys and me not being left out because of my limitations, I begin to thank God!

The Lord Jesus Christ is recorded as saying  in Matthew’s Gospel the 18th Chapter verse 3, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

We are instructed to become like little children.  And therefore we are to love like children love.  Forgive like children forgive. Trust and Obey God like we are His children.  

A child’s love doesn’t see imperfections and limitations as much as it feels love and bonds with those who love back.  A child’s love is not condemning but encouraging.

But we must ask ourselves, “where did we, as a civilization and a people, lose our love for fellow man and neighbor? Who told us that we had to stop loving each other with a child-like love?” 

Do you have friends from childhood?

Do you have someone who will stick with you, no matter what you are going through, until you get home?

Do you have someone who will not shun you because you have a short coming or some limitations?

I know someone who will stick closer than a brother and never forsake you. His name is Christ Jesus.

For he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

S.M.I.L.E./ TODAY’S SABBATH MESSAGE FOR JULY 20, 2013

TIME SHARE

It still is a mystery to me how we can never make time to fellowship with each other until someone dies. Only then do we seem to make the time to visit the funeral home, visit the family home, arrive one hour early to the funeral services and spend another hour eating up the after-funeral meal.

Let’s be honest. We make time for anything we want to make time for. We make time to gossip for hours on the phone and in the street. We make time to get our hair and nails done even if it takes all day and a bunch of money. We make time to go out for an evening [and some of us don’t return until the next evening.] We make the time and spend the money to attend sporting events, movies, plays, comedy clubs, sorority and fraternity meetings and conventions. We take time to hurt other people and put them down and spread rumors about them. We make the time to get our cigarettes, alcohol, beer, wine and recreational drugs. We take the time to detail our cars and trucks. As a matter of fact, we make the time to do just about whatever it is we want to do whenever we want to do it and for however long we want to do it.

But we just can’t seem to find the time to spend in fellowship with one another or with our LORD. (Hebrews 10:25)

How we spend our time is as important as how we spend our money. It tells who and what is really of value and importance to us. Therefore, spend your time wisely for tomorrow’s not promised to anyone and today is the only time that you have.

S.M.I.L.E.

SHARE THE TIME YOU’VE BEEN BLESSED WITH!

MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY WITH THE TIME THAT YOU HAVE.

INVEST YOUR TIME IN OTHERS AND IN SERVICE TO GOD!

LOVE AS IF YOUR TIME WAS RUNNING OUT.

ENJOY THE TIME THAT YOU HAVE.

(O.W. Prince)
