We as Believers and Followers of Christ cannot move any further away from the Truth; because it is causing more harm. Holiday Trees have no place in WORSHIP. Santa has no place in WORSHIP. Raindeer have no place in WORSHIP. You can WORSHIP The Father, Christ, & The Holy Spirit of Truth anytime, anywhere, and at any place but when you have chosen a special place to do so…. Don’t bring in pagan traditions and practices into your WORSHIP. There are too many churches putting up trees with gifts under them; Christ is the gift and we won’t find him under a tree but in the heart of believers. There are too many people satisfied with just allowing satan to do what he wants and you’re the one putting santa attire on and acting as if Christ sent him. Since Christ didn’t send santa, he’s a workman of satan. As Followers and Believers of Christ, we are to spread Truth and be examples of how to live; not follow lies from satan. You may not know this but following pagan practices causes demonic influences into your life which causes sin and that displeases God. Let’s do better and stand for Truth and stop following these pagan traditions and follow Christ wholeheartedly. After salvation, comes teaching.
PLEASE STOP TELLING YOUR CHILDREN, THERE’S A santa and he brings presents. Typically parents are the first people to lie and confuse their children. Why celebrate santa and give him unnecessary praise and even worship. Santa is betrayed as delivering presents to all children during one night, going through the chimney or even windows and doors. You can’t see him while he’s delivering presents but you tell your children to believe. You are typically the one telling others not to lie to your children but you are constantly telling lies. Santa has no place in Christianity; that’s a blatant and confusing lie given from satan because God is a Spirit and he isn’t seen unless he manifests himself, you can’t touch him and you can’t feel him unless the Holy Spirit of Truth is indwelling you. What if your children ask, how can The Lord be real when santa isn’t? The Lord is a very present help and he’s our salvation, Santa is a lie used to deceive use into spending money and losing focus from the Truth. God didn’t start santa, the wickedness of satan did. You are responsible for teaching your children the Truth, not following pagan worldly traditions that come from workers of satan. Please, Followers of Christ, stand for Truth and stop lying to children. They deserve the Truth at all times, even when the world lies to them, Let us be honest.
If I could release the chains of bondage from around the Believers, I would but that’s the duty of The Lord. We have been mislead and deceived by society for far too long. We are told not to be conformed to this world in Romans 12:2 but sadly, we are being influenced too much by this world. Worship is to be done in Spirit and in Truth but yet so many people distort that truth with their own definition. If you’re recording Facebook live while the Word is going forth, YOU ARE NOT WORSHIPPING THE LORD. You cannot record and worship The Lord at the same time. Your focus should be on pleasing The Lord and not accessing more followers on your social media. If you are more excited to get to a building called church, see relatives, or wear your latest array on Sunday morning, I come to tell you, YOU ARE NOT WORSHIPPING THE LORD. You are people pleasing and The Lord has no part in that. The building isn’t a place of worship because The Lord didn’t require a place but He says to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. I want to help and not just allow us to continue in sin and not be admonished, be mindful that you cannot serve The Lord any kind of way. It’s a protocol that requires a pure heart.
The other day, while on my blog lordssheepblog.wordpress.com I encountered professed atheists. While evangelizing to them, they pointed out very eye opening and quite frankly alarming things about us Christians. Some things that they said were °Christians are always forcing their beliefs on them, °Christians can’t even decide on what to believe, °Christians say to love but act out of hate, °Christians say just read the Bible, °Christians don’t understand what they believe but they invite others to attend their church. I just named a few but actually they named 34 things.
The first things I’ll like to point out are the fact they said Christians can’t decide on what to believe. Now, I know we are one body made up of different members and functions but we have to follow the Holy Spirit and listen to His teachings. satan is telling his demons to attack and send deceptions to the body of Christ and we must be ready to fight through the Holy Scriptures. Some teach baptism is fully immersed into water and some teach the Holy Spirit baptism. Some teach Salvation by grace through faith only and some teach Salvation by works and grace. Some teach you can lose Salvation and some teach Salvation cannot be lost. Some teach when you die, you go to Heaven and some teach when Jesus comes back you’ll then go to Heaven. These are a few things within Christianity that the teachers have been deceived and mislead about. The Holy Spirit never teaches an error, that’s always from satan and his wickedness. Ask the Lord for wisdom of the Holy Scriptures personally so he can teach you all things.
The next statement I’ll address that the atheists mentioned were Christians say just read the Bible. Christians, we cannot just tell others to read the Holy Scriptures because they are not Spiritual. The natural man cannot understand the things of the spirit. So, telling a natural man to read the Spiritual and Holy written Scriptures will lead to error. God draws us to Jesus and we are predestinated to be saved. Upon being saved, we are equipped with gifts from the Lord. We all have work to do and we should all do the work of an evangelist and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to lost souls, simply telling them to read the Bible isn’t enough. Tell them the Gospel and live a life pleasing to the Lord, that they may want to learn and follow Jesus Christ. In order to tell the Gospel of Jesus, we must know it. Jesus died, was buried, and was resurrected on the third day morning.
It just goes to show that anyone can teach you something, we just need to pay attention. I truly believe God sent me to evangelize to those atheists; possibly for them to be saved but for sure for me to become more effective in my outreach. I have been that Christian who only talked about what I heard but now I speak with The Lord leading me to speak about what I’ve read and learned through Him. We aren’t listening enough to others. We just want to be heard but if no one listens, no one can be added to the church because how can you hear without the preacher. Be firm in your belief of Jesus Christ and listen to others so they can listen to you. Be blessed.
The deception of Christian tithing is really ripping at my heart. That lie distorts the Holy Word of God and it places legalism on people. I come from a building where it was taught and I was bound under that lie but I’ve been taught from the Holy Spirit and I’ve been delivered. There are too many people who know the scripture will a man rob God? Yes in tithes and offerings (Malachi 3:8) and bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house, and prove my now says the Lord, if I will not open up windows of heaven and pour you out blessings you won’t have run enough to receive (Malachi 3:10) but not
If the gospel be hid, it is hid to those who are lost (2 Corinthians 4:3) or Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures. He was buried and he rose again the third day morning according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). We have been mislead and programmed to pay money but not evangelize to lost souls. Tithing in the Holy Scriptures are food of some sort and not money. We raise money in church to buy larger building and wants but we don’t evangelize to lost souls. We are told to trust God and pay unnecessary and deceptive tithes but we don’t evangelize. We attend the building every Sunday but we don’t evangelize throughout the week. The gospel is the most important topic because it glorifies Jesus, edifies believers, and draws lost souls to Christ. Ask the Lord for wisdom of his Holy scriptures and study the Word of Truth while being taught by the Holy Spirit. I pray the truth over your soul and spirit. God bless the truth and the truth seekers.
The God of Christianity (The Father, Jesus, The Holy Spirit) are not the same gods of other false religions. The nation of islam, buddhists, new age, ect…are not the the same God. Jesus died for all while we were all yet sinners but he didn’t die to allow false religions to deceive the world. Follow Jesus and Jesus alone to salvation. No other religion leads to salvation and everlasting life.
Here are a few thought provoking questions that should have us thinking more spiritual rather than carnal. Has Jesus made a way for homosexuals to get married? Has Jesus made a way for women to have abortions? Has Jesus made a way for people to fornicate? Has Jesus made a way for spouses to commit adultery? If your answers are no, then you’re thinking spiritually. Since Jesus hasn’t made a way for these sins to be committed, then why are we making ways for them? We should think like Christ, not satan. As Jesus believers we should abhor sin; in every aspect. Satan is making sin more comfortable and that should not be acceptable among believers. Be blessed.
So many people in society are easily and boldly proclaiming their opinions about their political affiliation, sororities, fraternities, brands, employers, schools, sports teams, ect… In other words, we shouldn’t proclaim our favorite shows, teams, political thoughts, and other things more than we proclaim and read the Word of God. The Word is out strength not rumor magazines and gossip. Now, I know it’s only opinions and everyone is entitled to their own thoughts and beliefs; but why is being a disciple of Jesus the Christ so hard to openly proclaim? I am a disciple of Jesus Christ and I’m proud to worship and serve him. I often say until you’re in a certain situation, you cannot say what you would or wouldn’t do. I do believe that I would die for professing Jesus name as my Lord and Savior. I’m sometimes criticized for my faith and my unwillingness to deny Christ. I urge all of you to also pray for Holy boldness and stand firm in your faith. I feel that satan has too many mouthpieces. He’s using speakers both nationally and locally and they’re sometimes unaware. We all talk about unnecessary things at times and just because it’s common doesn’t mean it’s right. (Philippians 4:8 says Whatsoever things are true, Whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things). So I challenge all my readers to meditate on this Holy Scripture and evaluate if you’re truly thinking the right thoughts and also saying the right things. I’ll be the first to say that I have thoughts the wrong thoughts and said the wrong things but Holy Scriptures are here for sound doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). We must prioritize our thoughts and feed our Spirit with the most essential bread: the bread of life. We must think of Holy things more than distracting things. (1 Thessalonians 5:22 says Abstain from all appearance of evil). The common things in society today are mostly evil. You basically cannot watch tv without seeing some form of formication, adultery, homosexuality, incest, abide, rape, or some other form of violence being promoted and justified. The radio has an open mic policy for satan to spread degrading and subtle deceptions. If you don’t feed your Spirit with the Word of God, you will easily be deceived. Ignorance is not and excuse once you’ve heard the Gospel of Christ. We often mix up good deeds and Holy Spirit obedience. If you are doing good deeds simply because someone is looking or you want recognition; your reward will not be added in Heaven. Those who are obedient to the Holy Spirit and who help those in need without needing recognition will surely have their rewards in Heaven. The Lord has been too good for us to not openly and boldly declare his wondrous works, his mighty power, love, and saving grace. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, crucified, buried, and the third day resurrected with All power in his hand. Just believe this story and allow Jesus to be Lord of your life. Be blessed.
The Christian doctrine of baptism is not into water but into the body of Christ. Baptism in the Greek is (baptisma) which refers to the baptism instituted by Jesus. We as Jesus followers have often been told that we must be baptized by immersion into water or if you’re ill you can simply be sprinkled by water. On the contrary, Jesus ended the water baptism when the Holy Spirit came on the scene. Like all things, just because a new institution was passed doesn’t mean people still didn’t get baptized with water. They had to be taught first and that teacher was Apostle Paul under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 4:5) says One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism. Paul is writing to say that Jesus is Lord and the only Lord, the christian doctrine is the only doctrine where only faith is needed and no good works to become righteous through Christ Jesus, and there is only one baptism needed and that’s with the Holy Spirit. The Jews were to be baptized for the remission of their sins and John the Baptist came to baptize with water but Jesus said you will be baptized with the Holy Ghost (Acts 1:5). For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be Bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13). As you can see, by one Spirit, (which is the Holy Spirit), are we baptized into one body (Christ). The water baptism doesn’t save you, only being baptized into Jesus body saves you. Being baptized into Christ is simple: Believe with your whole heart that Jesus was sent by the Father, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was crucified then died, put in a grave and on the 3rd day morning was resurrected and is seated on the right hand of the Father. Allow Jesus to be Lord of your life and you will be saved and upon your belief in Jesus, you will be baptized by Jesus with the Holy Spirit. I tell all that being baptized is necessary to live with Jesus, but not by water, only by the Holy Spirit. Christian baptism is only with the Spirit. Baptism by a preacher in the form of salvation or rededicating your life to Christ is meaningless with water. Typically, parents like to dedicate their child to the Lord in the form of a pre baptism but no child is baptized with Christ until they have heard and believed the good news of Jesus Christ. A water baptism only makes you wet; it doesn’t change nor save you. Only being baptized into the Lord’s body with the Spirit can change you. Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death (Romans 6:3). This is once again letting us know that we are to be baptized into the body of Christ. Before Jesus started baptizing believers with the Holy Spirit, baptism was used as a cleansing for the remission of sins. Now that Jesus’ blood has cleansed us, we no longer need a water baptism. For as many of you have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ (Galatians 3:27). Often times we hear once you are baptized, you’re saved but actually, using that phrase in the common understanding is incorrect. Water baptism was never a form of salvation for Christians. Churches today have misinterpreted Holy Scriptures and I myself have believed them until now when the Holy Spirit actually taught me otherwise. A lot of churches say water baptism is necessary for salvation but in the same sentence say, not being baptized doesn’t mean you won’t be saved. I’m here with all authority from the Lord and he says, become a follower and learner of him and be baptized into his body upon your belief in his redeeming work. Pray, meditate, and study the Holy Scriptures for yourself through the Holy Spirit guidance. I am not a heretic, I know some will disregard this teaching as satanic but I don’t mind rejection but I do want all to be informed. Be blessed.
Modern Day Pharisees
In today’s society, we are yet living in the last days. My spirit is grieved at what’s going on in the world. Before you jump to conclusions, I’m referring to professed believers in Christ. As a society of believers, we are failing. There are preachers who are speaking heresy and believers are allowing it only because they’re worshipping that preacher and no wrong can be done in their eyes. There are teachers who are teaching falsely; totally deceiving the believers and the believers aren’t studying the Holy Word of God enough to discern what is of God and what is of the adversary. There are gifted evangelists who won’t evangelize to unbelievers but who are more concerned with financial gain. We need the called leaders of God to stand up and take your rightful place. God isn’t pleased with the error of his Word going forth. We have modern day pharisees who instead of announcing their good works with a trumpet, they are announcing their good works through social media, TV, and the radio. You hypocrites, you announce the good works that you do for man but you won’t announce your sin to them. We are living in a world where love is waxing cold and people are only doing good when there’s a camera or eye witnesses present. There are idolaters who are worshipping their pastor. You invite people to your church to hear them preach but you won’t invite people to Christ. Listen, souls don’t need a pastor, souls need a savior. We are living in times where pastors can ask us anything and we stop what we are doing and we follow that pastor but we are the same people who won’t open up the Holy Scriptures and use it as a guide for us. We are honoring the creation more than the creator, who is Jesus the Christ. I am making an appeal to the unbelievers, repent of your sin and turn to Jesus, the savior of the world. To the believers, stop conforming to the world and take a stand against sin and be bold for Christ.
