Higher Standard

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9

When I first heard of the Ashley Madison site being hacked, to be honest I didn’t think much of it because I never even heard of the company. But as the days went on and names were being revealed we soon realized this is a big deal. The sins of many being exposed to the world and the fallout as many families and marriages are destroyed and broken.

And then we come to find out there are even self-proclaimed Christians on this site saying there living a double life.

Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 1 Timothy 5:20

So what do we do with all these Christians who claim to be living like Jesus but acting like Satan? Do we continue to give them a pass or is it time to call them out on there transgressions?

I have sadly come across many who call them selves Christians believe they can use Jesus as a free pass to live a sinful life. This is false doctrine. Jesus said Deny Yourself first then carry your cross and follow him. Sin is all about self pleasure, so if your living a sinful lifestyle you never denied yourself to begin with.

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14

So many will use the excuse we are all born sinners, therefor I can’t stop sinning. Jesus became human and walked the Earth for over 30 years and never sinned. Do you not think Jesus was tempted?

He showed us that a human could live a righteous life but it takes sacrifice and discipline. We might not be able to be like Jesus but we can strive to be like him. Isn’t that why we call ourselves Christians to have Christ living inside of us?

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:22-23

Make no mistake about it there will be many that prophesied in the name of Jesus and he will reject them. Why? Because they are fake. There mouth is saying one thing while there heart is in another place, you can’t serve two masters. Your either following Jesus or your following Satan, that’s it.

Are people really seeing Jesus living thru you? It’s time we hold ourselves to a higher standard, not of the world’s standard but of Gods standards in Jesus Name Amen

The Lords Prayer

The Lords Prayer giving to us by Jesus himself is one of the most powerful prayers you can say, lets analyze each verse to see why it’s a blessing

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Matthew 6:9

First we are acknowledging God as our Heavenly father, by this you acknowledge his is our creator. The world hallowed means “to honor as holy” and “greatly respected” so we say Hallowed be God we are saying he is the holiest and greatest of all.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10

What is our purpose in life? Our purpose to prepare for the coming of Gods Kingdom, we our acknowledging our purpose will this verse.

Also we are acknowledging we put our lives in Gods hands, whatever his will let it be done. As promised God will restore the Earth back to perfection and innocence as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11

Jesus said don’t worry about tomorrow for today has enough trouble of its own. Each day we should focus on that day and ask God to enable us to prosper thu this day.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Matthew 6:12

Each day we should start by asking for mercy and forgiveness for our sins and forgive others who have sinned against us. By doing this each day you will live in peace. To hold grudges against people who have wronged you will only keep you imprisoned to there actions.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Matthew 6:13

God promises not to give us more temptation then we can bear, ask for Gods help to keep the temptations of this world away from you so we won’t fall.

Whenever you call upon God he will answer us, so by asking God to deliver us from evil he will protect us from Satan.

Interesting in the NIV translation they removed the last part of this verse. I feel its important because you are acknowledging Gods kingdom reigns forever.

I usually say this prayer each morning to start my day, as this will start your day right with God and protect and prosper you thru the day in Jesus Name Amen

Can you See The Signs?

Unashamed of Jesus

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:8

With the recent natural disasters, including Earthquake in Nepal and Volcano in Chile, you have to wonder whether the end is near. All the things Jesus foretold us would happen are going on right now at an alarming rate. But still is anyone listening? Is anyone stopping to pray to God and ask for mercy and redemption? Is anyone preparing for the return of Jesus Christ?

And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. Joel 2:30-31

Prophet Joel prophesized about these great events also, which…

You are Worth More Than Many Sparrows

What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. Matthew 10:27

Many times we find God in our darkest hour, but the hope and salvation we uncover needs to be shared and spread to everyone.  You are the light of the world, let your light shine before others so they can see the Glory of God

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28

But be prepared, when you speak the truth of Jesus you will be hated. Evil people don’t want to hear righteous things.  But God created your soul and he is the only one who can deliver your soul, nobody else can take that away from you.

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. Matthew 10:29

Ironically you can learn more from observing birds than you can from reading the latest self help book. Do birds stress out and worry there next meal or where there going to live? No they just live and God provides for them, why can’t we live the same way?

And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Matthew 10:30-31

You are a child of the Living God, creator of the Heavens and The Earth. You were born with a purpose not by accident, you are somebody special. God knows every hair on your head, he surely knows your struggles and pain. But you must keep enduring because God has promised a new Heaven and Earth where there is no more pain, suffering, or death. Rejoice in the Lord and wait for your King to be coming soon in Jesus Name Amen

Rock Star vs. Worship Leader

Rock Star vs. Worship Leader

And when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian, “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker. And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was at the entrance of the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds. But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they tore their garments and rushed out into the crowd, crying out, “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them (Acts 4:11-15).”

This has been a pet…
