I don’t think I’m alone in this, but it doesn’t even matter if I am or not. I am saddened, repulsed, disgusted and disappointed on a daily basis. At least for a moment. That moment happens when I open any given social media and see human behavior at an all time grotesque state. Unfortunately now in a digital world, you are slammed on a daily basis witnessing tragedy after tragedy, your eyes cannot help but see ignorance and hatred everywhere.
I know for myself personally as a believer in Yeshua, Jesus Christ I’m supposed to know these things would happen and I’m supposed to allow the Holy Spirit to lead me and guide me in these times, I’m supposed to let the love of God shine in me like a light for those around me in darkness and to be honest with you? Sometimes I want to quit. I get so disgusted every time I open a social media platform, every time I hear about another school shooting, see someone getting killed unjustly by law enforcement, watching people post some of the most vicious and hateful words I’ve ever read, and the children… My God the children. I can’t stomach one more senseless death of a child.
I had a moment the other day quietly by myself with God and just broke down like “Lord… how? How am I supposed to do this? I’m trying to do what you told me to do and I can’t “. I sat there quiet and an image of a Lighthouse flashes across my mind and then that quiet still voice, that has the capability of drowning you in perfect peace that you can only relate to if you have a personal relationship with God said “a lighthouse is most effective in the darkness.” I sat there and cried. Legit cried. The darker it is, the brighter the lighthouse light becomes.
So I decided to share this because believers have different positions, jobs, titles, but ALL have the same assignment. Your job may be inside a church, out in the street, at the grocery store, in your blog, at your office, in the mall, on instagram … it doesn’t matter. Don’t compare yourself to other believers, don’t get distracted from your job because you’re busy debating someone else’s job. We all get weary and yes, sometimes it “appears” that the wickedness is winning and there’s a lot of people who call themselves believers and their social media feeds make it impossible to tell them apart from people who don’t know Christ at all…. BUT we were told these things would happen (2nd Timothy 3:1-9). This is not the time to get weary (Revelation 12:11) it’s not the time to argue denomination or name translations (1 Corinthians 12:12). One day soon, people will be so tired of the state of the world that they will welcome with open arms one world order and a one world religion. If you turned off people’s phones and debit cards tonight, they’d line up by the thousands in the morning to take a microchip if it meant getting access to their money and the internet. (Revelation 13:16)
So my strength is renewed in this and I hope this will encourage those of you who have also become weary, they don’t have to like you. They don’t have to agree with you, they don’t have to listen, and they don’t have to believe. If you saw them crossing the street and a car was coming, you would yell , WATCH OUT! At that point they can make a decision to watch out or keep going. With something so precious as a soul and where you’ll spend eternity, I would never want to see anyone I knew or ever had any interaction with, standing before God being denied access to Heaven and seeing me there and asking why didn’t I tell them the truth. What would be a good enough excuse? Because I was afraid they wouldn’t like me anymore? What excuse or apology could I give? I can live with someone not liking me, I can live with people calling me names, I can live with someone disagreeing with me, but I don’t want to bear the burden of not telling them the truth.
So in whatever country, state, region, city, industry, or platform God has given to you personally? Be wise, win souls, and do not give up. It’s always darkest before dawn and someone, somewhere is looking for the light you carry.
Now more then ever folks are abandoning what they know, sellin out, switching sides in hot purist fueled by the love of money (which btw the LOVE of money is the root of all evil ) Some are even giving up all together. But in the midst? The people of God are rising up because they realize that time is running out. We are living in a time where everyone has access to the truth and belief in that truth is a personal choice as it has been since the beginning. You are either going to whole heartedly serve the truth and all it’s components (your walk, your talk, your speech, your actions) or continue to find yourself in a deeper state of confusion swaying whichever way the wind blows you or whatever emotion some social media post exposed you to. Except this time, the confusion is so deep, you don’t even realize you’re confused. Confusion has permission to enter through every door that isn’t aligned. When you entertain things that go directly against what you know to be true of God you allow your human reasoning to start justifying your speech, thoughts, actions and behavior instead of the Holy Spirit and incase you haven’t really met Him, He normally veto’s most of the things you’re comfortable doing. The word of God says “My people perish for a lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6) and the truth is? Most people have no idea the bible refers to being controlling as witchcraft, reading your horoscope is considered practicing witchcraft, practicing any of the new age beliefs (guided meditation, tarot cards, ) not only is sinning against God but you unknowingly have handed over legal access to the devil himself. Most people don’t even know that there is a system, an order in all kingdoms. If you have never spent any time learning the in’s and out’s of the system then you my friend are sitting in the middle of a war with no weaponry. My job is not to argue with anyone who knows Christ already or who has already made their decision. My job is to extend the invitation to those who’ve never met Him, remind those of you who have been given a platform (regardless of it’s size) have the responsibility of whatever you say or don’t say, and how you live on and off that platform you will be held accountable for it, and to issue a warning that the King of Kings is coming soon, get it together. “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36)
Sounds like a funny question, right? Most people think “well everyone knows who God is…” but the truth is, they don’t. So these are some very personal questions that are really only for you to ask yourself because the answers are really between you and God.
Who is God to you?
When you pray, and if you pray to God, who are you speaking to?
If you only call on God when someone is sick or you have a need of some sort, who is it you’re calling?
Are you referring to the same God that’s in the bible or a different one?
The reason it’s important to ask yourself these questions is because we are living in a very dangerous time. We are living in a time where an alarming number of “End-Time” Bible prophecies are manifesting themselves. I don’t want to spend too much time talking about that right now because there are many people (I myself was included at one point)who frankly don’t have a clue who God actually is or what the Bible says. Over the years many people adapted a “type” of Christianity that was mainly only because it was passed down from their family and these religious traditions were only that, religious traditions. Many people were never taught how to have a personal relationship with God or that was even possible, many people don’t have any idea what the criteria is to actually get into heaven and they’re just under the impression only murders go to hell, but one of the worst things in my opinion is that since many people were never taught or encouraged to read the Bible for themselves, they practiced many “traditions” that were part of a religious culture which actually are nowhere, anywhere in the actual Bible with some of them going directly against what it says in the scriptures.
You see, the God of the Bible gave us a one-way ticket to heaven and that is through His son, Jesus Christ.
John 3:16 (NKJV)16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Some will say that there’s many roads to God and the bible tells us different. Jesus himself said,
John 14:6 (NKJV)6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Society may change, but God does not change. Just because the majority is doing something, doesn’t make it right (the exact same way your parents told you they didn’t care what your friends were doing because they weren’t their parents). Just because God and His laws are not as honored among the majority as it once was, does not mean in anyway, shape, or form that God’s law has changed. God has given us all the beautiful gift of free will. He has a constant invitation on the table for you to personally get to know Him. Not one of us is perfect, nor will we ever be but we can absolutely be forgiven for all of the ways we have that are unpleasing to God and enjoy the assurance of eternal life.
You don’t have to take my word for it because honestly, I’m nobody special. I can only testify to the fact that knowing Christ on an intimate level has made me a better person and saved my life. If the God you say you believe in is the God of the Bible, pick up a Bible, start reading and ask God to reveal Himself to you. If you have no idea where to start? The book of Matthew, Proverbs, and Psalms are very easy to understand. I strongly encourage you to make an informed decision before the day falls upon us where the window of opportunity to make a choice is closed. Although you may have “better things to do” then read the Bible, ask yourself if you will be okay with making the conscious choice not to find out who God truly is and then one day have to stand before Him?
If you haven’t seen Cartoon Network’s new “Mr. Pickles” show, I encourage you to cover yourself in prayer before even looking it up. The cartoon openly glorifies satanism and to-date is the sickest dark comedy series I have seen. I’ve heard folks say “Oh, they’ve been doing that for years” and that is absolutely true. However, that is not an excuse for us to do nothing, say nothing and just allow it to continue. We live in a society that has people so worried about being politically correct and not offending anyone’s feelings that they fail to speak up and tell the truth for fear of what people might think or say. This show is on Cartoon Network. The word “cartoon” in it’s self implies it’s geared towards children.
The images above are the LEAST offensive of what’s available. There should not even remotely be a chance that any child would stumble upon this cartoon. It doesn’t matter what your faith belief is, I think we can reason together that this is NOT okay. We can’t ignore things like this Fam. Let it not be said that we did nothing and let it not be said that we didn’t even try. Please sign the petition below for Cartoon Network to take Mr. Pickles off the air.
I have been debating about writing this blog particularly for a few days because let’s be honest, most reasonable people do not wake up in the morning and try to tick people off. So in advance, if you become offended by this post? That’s not the intention. There is a very serious question that God has been nudging me to ask in a general arena (i.e. this blog) for the last few days and pretty much I need to let it out and even if one person wakes up, it’ll be worth the nine million crazy comments I’ll get.
Have you as an American ever in your life looked at a tragedy or a way of life in another country and thought “I’m glad I live here”, and then carried on about your life?
I’m sure most of us have. I remember being taught in grade school that we were lucky to live in America because of all the freedoms we have here. I remember growing up and always knowing in the back of my mind that there were parts of the world that children were starving. My Grandmother Rose used to always say, “Don’t waste food. There are people in this world who have nothing to eat.” I remember seeing things about China and Russia and how the kids had to behave in school and at the time I really didn’t have the full understanding of what a communist country was. As a teenager, a friend of mine was stationed in Saudi Arabia and I remember him telling me that it was perfectly legal there for a man to throw his wife off of a tower if he thought she was cheating on him. Now as an adult as I would hear and learn more things, it actually started to disturb me. I started really speaking up about causes and injustices within our own system in my early twenties and haven’t stopped yet and don’t plan to. The reason I’m asking you to ask yourself if that has ever happened to you is because I want us to be able to touch down on a point that we can all relate to. No matter what your culture or ethnicity is, we can all agree as American’s we have much more freedoms then the rest of the world.
Have you ever heard the word or term “conditioning”? When someone is “conditioned” to behave a certain way? This is when environmental factors play a direct impact on a person’s whole being. Generally most American’s have absolutely no idea what is really going on in the world. They have not a clue that other countries hate us because all they see is the foolishness the media filters them like all of these ridiculous Face Book challenges, our music, what people post on the internet/ Instagram/ You Tube, and of course whatever tragedy comes on CNN. From the other side? We look like godless animals and that is mostly because that is what they are shown… the same way all you as an American are shown is images of other people and how much they hate us. This my dears is called conditioning. We are conditioned to think things of each other mostly by media. Who owns media? Who’s in charge of that? Six large global corporations who are attached to the banks that run this world through government.
Most Americans are working multiple jobs to survive, they hardly have time for their families because they are working so hard to maintain a roof over their head and keep food on the table and pay off some fictitious debt that is actually a form of control. If you are lent fictitious money (electronic) you then spend the rest of your life paying back fictitious money with real earnings which in turn keeps the world turning at your expense. Then we have folks that can’t find jobs and they resort to other means to feed their families at any cost which nine times out of ten doesn’t end well but instead ruins their life, secures jobs and incomes for prisons, and it’s a double win for the conditioners because it negatively effects that person’s off spring.
I know people have mixed emotions about politics and “conspiracy theories” but honestly if you research what I’m saying you will find it’s all 100P% true and it is available all over the internet. Why don’t more people know about it? The answer is so simple it’s stupid… they don’t read it. Seriously, why would you? You go to work, you have kids, you have more bills then money most of the time, and while you’re on your way to work all you hear on the radio is pretty much music that brainwashes you into believing that money and partying is the thing to do and you are “less than” if you don’t do or have these things, you barely have time for yourself and there is always something to pay for. Did you know that when American unemployment was at the highest, the government played a part in developing games such as Farmville? This game pacified over 85 million people around the world. For the last ten years or so, slowly but surely the pacifying has increased. Most people spend most of the day in their phone. If you don’t have a phone the government will give you a phone. Most people spend at least an hour a day on social media, most of the ones that don’t are watching hours of television. American’s have become lazy, passive, and most of us are overweight. But watch this… increasingly over the years children have learned to stay inside, play inside. They are not exercising, they are not using their imagination and most parents are so over worked and exhausted as long as their kids aren’t in trouble? They could care less as long as they’re quiet. How does this relate? Over the last ten years you have been conditioned to stay inside, small places, and occupy yourself with mindless tasks like video games and Face Book. If you google it, the government has FEMA camps set up everywhere in the US. Martial Law Executive Orders have already been put into play and most Americans are fat, lazy, exhausted, and won’t be any trouble at all if their door is kicked in in the middle of the night. They’ll get used to the camps, after all you’ve been being trained to entertain yourself in a small space for years.
The problem lies in the fact that because actual reality is everyone’s having a hard time surviving so when we hear about things like our brothers and sisters in Detroit living with no water you may care briefly but as long as it’s not you or someone you know? It does not change you or move you… How can it? The bills keep coming, there’s still no money and you have your own family to worry about … right? The part that most people are ignoring is the reality of they are not exempt. Fam.. I seriously urge you to research some of the things I’ve mentioned and draw your own conclusions. These things are not going to happen, they already are. I know that it’s scary because nobody wants to be out of their “comfort zone” but what you fail to realize is that your comfort zone you think you feel is a mirage. It’s time to wake up.
I challenge you not to dump ice on yourself or light yourself on fire, I challenge you to turn off all of your social media, television, and radio for one week. Unplug yourself from the Matrix (It’s a lot harder than it sounds, I did it a few weeks ago). Spend the time researching what’s going on in the world. Research Agenda 21, research Martial Law in the US, Population Control, look up who the government labels as a “domestic terrorist” (I guarantee you more than half of you will find something on that list that means YOU) and research the Anonymous movement. These topics will lead you to more. Spend time with actual people you love. Play with your kids, go for a walk, and above all things? Pray and figure out which side of the revolution you’re going to put yourself because it’s far better to pick a side then not and unfortunately, all of what’s happening in the world is happening even if you choose to ignore it or pacify it.
The bible says “My people perish for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6 NKJV) but the bible also says in 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV) “14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” Do not conform, be restored, then transformed.
