Making stand!

There has to come a day soon when we, the TRUE disciples of Jesus Christ, stop turning a blind eye towards lies and start taking a stand for the truth.

The lies of our adversary are at an all time high. Literally anything goes. New Age Spiritual practices are popping up left and right using a false Jesus as a platform to propel their false religion. And what saddens me is that I look around at the saints and we remain quiet. Afraid of controversy. Afraid to stand a part from the crowd. 

I get it we live in a world where to oppose someone’s thoughts and ideas is quickly labeled “unloving” and “offensive”, but we cannot let that detour us from proclaiming the Gospel.

“God is love and you are being unloving!” 

Yes. God is love, but God is not compromising. No where in scripture will you find God compromising His word in order to quench our idea of “love”.

The very nature of love testifies of truth! Where truth is absent, love cannot exist.

I am tired of sitting idle. If I come across a false teacher I will not be ashamed to expose the lie and just because I expose the lie does not mean I hate the person. I don’t hate anyone. I try my hardest to be like Jesus wherever I go, but if I see someone feeding another person poison I have to say something.

She shouldn’t be last

I’m reminded today of how too much of a good thing can become a bad thing in a marriage.

I’m constantly and always doing something. When I’m not at work I’m at home working. Trying to cram in as much as I can before the sun sets.

Between my career, my rambunctious blessings and home maintenance. My wife if I allow it can fall by the waist side. Leaving her and I little to no time together at the very end of the day.

My career is good, raising my children is good and taking care of the home is good

But none of those should out weigh the time I spend with my spouse.

What does it profit a man if he is successful in his career, but his wife is lonely?

What does it profit a man if he spends all his time catering to his children, but his wife needs are prioritized last?

Sure your wife would like you to embark on some new home project, but what she really wants is more time with you.

Men… we wear many hats and so many things require our attention, but time with our spouse cannot be neglected. We daily have to carve out time and find ways to be intimate with our spouse. Emotionally and physically. The same goes with fellowshipping with the Lord.

Without a healthy marriage it’s impossible to glorify God as ONE and for your marriage to be a ministry and testimony to others.

Walking away

Our flesh has a sinful constitutional aversion to acknowledge that there is a God.

But why?

The Bible supports this, in that every person inherently understands that there is a God. Creation testifies of a creator. (Romans 1:18-20)

So why ignore it?

Maybe because to acknowledge that there is a God is to acknowledge that you are accountable to someone greater then yourself and that you are not of your own doing.

Our sin. The constitutional law of sin is to avert from God. Not to obey Him or seek Him. Our sin wants NOTHING to do with God.

In the same breath, God does not want to “co-exist” with our sin neither. But there is a difference there. While sin wants to drive as far away as possible from God. God wants to come after our sin and crush it so that we can be reconciled to Him. That’s Love.

A loving Home

Men…

Sometimes to break through tension in a marriage you have to grab hold of your wife and let her know that love will reign supreme in your lives.

Reassure her of your commitment to her and to Jesus and that the devil will have NO part in your union.

It is the Husband who decides how love will Be expressed in a marriage.

Don’t wait for her to make the first move. You are the man and God has placed you as head of the marriage.

Determine this day to love Jesus first with ALL your heart and allow Him to guide your actions towards your wife.

Discrepancies in the Gospels

If you’ve read the Gospels there’s only a matter of time before you run into a variation of an event. One Gospel says that a certain event occurred one way while another Gospel may say it happened slightly different. For instance, the account of the empty tomb. No two Gospels describe this event identically. The Gospel of Matthew says that two women (Mary Magdalene and the other Mary) arrived at dawn and that an Angel came down from Heaven, rolled back the stone and spoke to the women telling them that “Jesus has Risen” after which they both took off to inform the disciples. John details it that Mary Magdalene did not speak to an Angel concerning Jesus until after she had first went and told the disciples that the tomb was empty.

Do these discrepancies discredit the Gospels?

On the contrary they add credibility to the Gospels!

Variation in stories is what we should expect from eye witness testimonies!

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were written by different people at different times. If all four Gospels lined up identically, word for word it would suggest that all four authors were inclusion.

The minor discrepancies of the empty tomb do not take away from the main point that all four authors agree happened and that’s that Jesus has RISEN!

Which Road?

Despite what today’s world tries to convince us, all roads do not lead to God. In fact there is but one way and one road. I say that with a joyful yet saddened heart. Joyful because I now walk on that one road. Saddened because I know many who do not and never will. There comes a point in our lives that we must examine what the world says vs what Jesus says. Is Jesus a liar? Is He God in the flesh? Did He truly come down to die for our sins? More importantly did He truly die and rise again three days later? I ask all who read this…Which road are you on?

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

Matthew 7:13-14 NIV #idefinfatherhood

The Great “I Am”

The Great I AM!!!

Lol I don’t know why that hits me so hard!

Before Abraham. I AM!!!! 🙌🏾

Jesus birth was not His Beginning!

He ALWAYS existed!

BEFORE Abraham I AM!!!

“Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.” “You are not yet fifty years old,” they said to him, “and you have seen Abraham!” “Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!””

John 8:56-58 NIV

Law of Gravity

The late British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking wants the creation to exist before the creator! The law of gravity is just that, it’s a law. And where do laws come from? From a law maker. Gravity isn’t capable of creating life it has zero intelligence. It merely does what it is was created to do. If I drop a pencil, gravity isn’t thinking to its self “I’m going to pull this pencil down.” It pulls the pencil down because that’s what it was created to do!The law of gravity only exist because God made it a law, outside of which it would never even exist! . #apologetics101 #Jesusistruth #God #love #idefinefatherhood

Let us not neglect one another

And that’s why we need the church. Not the building but the people. God didn’t call us into His family just to stay separated. We. Those who have made Jesus Lord of our lives, are NOW children of God. No Father finds pleasure in seeing His children at odds or far from one another. As the late great theologian Michael Jackson once said…. #cometogether 😎😉😁
