No short cuts

Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, “Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt.” So God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Sea.

We always want things to be quick and easy but it never is. We live in a simple-minded complicated society.

Simple because people many people don’t get what’s going on around them.

complicated because they don’t really care to take notice of those items and those problems and situations until they affect the end result of their options.

Israel needed to be freed because they were free already. They only ended up in the situation because of no food not because they had no money no pin or place to live it was all due to the fact they were starving.

Truth be told they had sheep they had cattle they just didn’t have bread rice meal to make the staple foods the side dishes.

a lot of times we get desperate because of the side issues things we are looking for that go along with what we already have that we actually need to make a living so we end up in bondage to things to people.

There are no shortcuts Saints God is taking us the long way around, and and that long journey we will learn whether we have the strength or the stamina to continue on to the promised land.

Christ is the only shortcut there is but to get to him you have to go the long way.

Preserved All of You.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

—————————–

We won’t be blamed if we aren’t out here causing issues. The Lord preserves us in Him. We aren’t safe if we are not covered by the Blood of Christ.

People are looking for a person to blame all the time for those things that have caused them to fail in life.

We who are in Christ Jesus should not be the reason that others fail in life. We should be encouraging, empowering and enlightened enough to show our comrades, our brothers and sisters in this world the life we all claim to live in the Lord.

Blame comes along when we are careless of how we present our lives to the world. People point at guilty people.

We can’t be the guilty before the world, we must be the forgiven, we must be able to forgive instantly, so that men can see the good work of Jesus in our walk and Glorify the Lord.

A church with no wrinkles, and a character that is without spots on it.

These are the things that we need to present to the world. Keep our head above the swamp of it all.

Do not let the swamp of life swallow you up, and bury in the depth of hate, and frustration. Stick your hands up and grab the tree of life that is the Lord our God and King. Let the Spirit of the Lord pull you out of the quick sand of the world’s grip. Let Christ’s preserve your whole and complete.

Over Wise Is Self Destructing

Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?

Eccl 7. 16

——-_—-_—-

Self destruct comes with knowing to much, or being a know it all, and not having any true Spiritual sense about ourselves.

You can know a lot of things, but the will of the master escapes those who are more worldly in knowing then faithful in their Spirit man.

This world thinks it is secure within it’s self. It trains those who are secured in it’s grips to trust only the world view of life, over the Godly views of how we should carry ourselves before our Creator and man.

Paul was very knowledgeable of the laws of God, and understood more once enlightened by the Spirit of God in his experience after being thrown down by the Holy Ghost.

It takes being knocked off of our high horses, before we can even begin to comprehend the depth of Holy Truth, over books and scientific philosophy of men.

Me theorize their own belief, even after they have been given evidence of God’s involvement. After the miraculous work of the Cross, men still doubt it is true.

I can assume that I am truly wise and smart, but I cannot determine what the next day might bring for me.

The most wisest position to be in that I can settle for in my life, is to trust that the Lord knows what tomorrow may hold for me, and keeping my life in the hand of the Almighty is the smartest decision I have made. I no longer need to be a know it all in my life. I just need to know God. He knows everything else.

Self destructing behavior is to assume you can calculate the risks in your life and compensate on another end to balance out the loss. We can’t take on that knowledge, because we are not aware of the simplicity of the future in the Lord’s eyes.

The future is simple to God to determine.

A Year Later

Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return about this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.

Insight

Let us see if your as hysterical next year. After your trauma of birth, we shall return to this same subject.

Abraham is given his heir after years of having to raise others children, and even after listening to his wife idea of family security through her handmaiden.

Many of us don’t feel as if we will ever be given a change to produce something with a lasting legacy for our future. We want something to leave behind for people to know that we existed. Most father’s want a son. To carry on his name. To give his hard work and character to. Abraham’s wife Sarah only had sorrow for so long that she could only feel hysteria in the words from the Angel. I’m sure she would not have been so callous, if she had experienced mother prior to that moment.

Many of you have had to deal with the subject of being empty and probably angry along with seeing life in a type of embodied joke put upon you, because of what you have not been able to give from your life’s work and achievement.

A woman most of the time wants to have a child, and be loved by her family. This would fulfill life for her.

It depresses her that she couldn’t offer that to her husband, she couldn’t be seen as the true Mrs Abraham to the servants and even her in laws.

God will give strength to the hopeless. There is a plan on the table for those who have to go into this life and do double duty, and still walk in such great faith before the Lord, even with such heaviness of heart and Spirit.

You pour from your resources to help others and feel trapped in a cycle of emptiness, and no resolve can satisfy your longings to give of your love so deep to your own offspring.

This can cause a deepening depression if you allow it to do so. It can hurt you so much that you develop a callous towards those who have been given the opportunity and haven’t done well with it.

Let the peace of God wash over you, as you fill your days pleasing the Lord until He comes for you. Surrender your thought to Christ, and donot let that hysteria cause you to return to the same spot next year, just to steal more strength and hope from you.

Can I Have My Sight Back.

Luke 18:41  “What do you want Me to do for you?” And he said, “Lord, I want to regain my sight.

__________________

If you are blind, you desire to see. It is that simple. No one wants to be blind and not see where they are going in life. However, many people are blindly walking around in their lives not seeing the place they have put themselves in.
The question here is who are you asking to give you clarity in life?  If you want others to show you a way to go, they can, but I bet you that way will only lead back to where you met them.  Many do not have answers.  Only the Savior can give us the answers we seek.  If we are looking to Him for the direction to go.
The man wanted to see, and He inquired of the Savior to give him sight.  Once we have acknowledged that we are just out here feeling our way through and come to a halt in our journey, we can then be bold to ask for the Lord to give us the view from His perspective.
I want to see.  These words are so true for me today, because we cannot see, even though we are not physically blind in some aspect.  We are spiritually unable to find the right clarity in our lives.  We are endangering ourselves and other who come along with us.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to lead others to their punishment, because I refuse to stop along the way and ask to receive what I have need of.  Sight from the Savior for a journey that He has ordered for my feet.
Let God show us the way to go.  Pray that our sight be restored and renewed in Christ Jesus.  This will be pleasing to God our Creator.  When we are no longer walking around blind, and He can give us our sight.

Praise God, Not Man.

Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Praise God, our Champion, and cry to the God of Jacob.

PS. 81. 1

————-

I give praise unto the Creator God. I am not permitted to bow and worship flesh, even my own. We surrender our lives unto the King who is glorious in His doing. He is the giver of all sustained life.

Find something to give total praise to God for in your life. Do not let the moment pass and not slip yourself into a position of praise and adoration unto our King of Glory.

We want the Lord’s name to reach the ends of the Earth in gratitude. What better way to show a dying world the love of our God, but for us all to come together each and everyday of the year and celebrate the Mighty name of Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God.

No more silence from the cheerleaders on the side lines.

Speak out with Glee. Support your family in Christ. We are so diversified within, and that comes with various ways to worship and praise Creator, and Father God.

Jesus is our example of glorifying the Holy name of His Father, and we can join Him along with all the Angels in Heaven to raise up the banner in representing our faith in God, and our love for the Son of God.

Our Champion.

The Order of Things

My thought for today, is why do we get so bent out of shape because things are supposed to be in order?

PS. 37. 32 Aramaic Bible in Plain English

The steps of a man are set in order before Lord Jehovah and his way is set in order.

I have never seen so much disruption from the need to put things right.

It is almost as if we want to have it only our way, no matter if things are chaotic and misplaced.

People want things in their lives right . They demand that others live according to how they dictate to them the way things are to take place around them. That is not wrong to me at all. In fact that is more Godly then we know.

The Lord doesn’t want us to sit in counsel with ungodly. That doesn’t mean we do not sit around those who are not saved, it means those who are known to us to have principals that are contrary to our faith in Christ. It also means that we are not to join them in their way of speaking against the established Word of God we claim we live our lives from.

If we truly want to give to God the service that is due Him. Let us start here. Correct our directive, and follow a pattern of living according to the Word of God on purpose.

The Word of God tells us that the Lord has ordered the steps of a righteous man.

We see the cosmos as disorder, but in the sight of the Creator God, the Heavens are completely in sync. Things are in the right place, when they are in Christ. When we walk away from the truth, and follow our own mindset, we leave God out of our decisions, and it takes us into rebelling, because we assume we are in good shape. When we are in an out of order state of thinking.

Maybe I should ask, done think we are righteous that God has ordered our journey? If I’m not right, then it is not the path God has put me on, it is my own. This thought, I do not like at all. I can’t become comfortable being out of order, but filled with such chaos. We must depart from fleshly gain, and cleave to righteous life.

The Everlasting God

Have you not known?

Have you not heard?

The everlasting God, the LORD,

The Creator of the ends of the earth,

Neither faints nor is weary.

His understanding is unsearchable.

— Isaiah 40:28 NKJV

——————————————-The Everlasting God. His thoughts are unsearchable. It is not hard to figure out that we are limited in our complete understanding of the Lord Creators plans until He is willing to reveal to us all.

From everlasting to everlasting the Lord God our Creator still lives. His known existence is left to His own knowledge. No one can search record of His beginnings, nor His Eternal ending. We live and exist in the vastness of His creative knowledge. We are fascinated by what the Father has made. We are taught of His ways from ancient history through out mankind, from civilation to civilation. Why do men marvel at the mysteries that surround such depth of knowledge, when we cannot match intellectually with who God the Creator has shown us that He is?

It is like a plate of food trying to understand why it is the flavor we have cooked into it. Why it is the particular choice of succula t taste for our tongue. Just as good cannot doctate to those who have made it what it is, men cannot truly choose how powerful and wise the God of all creation is.

This is not difficult for me to comprehend. I know it is not hard for you to grasp either, so I’ll just leave it there.

Fight Your Mind

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

2 Cor. 10. 5

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Where it all starts is in recess of our free thinking.  We have the right to think and do whatever we see fit.  No one can take this autonomous reality from us.  God surely won’t take what He has given us.

I’m big on the subject of preaching against sin.  I’m also hard on those of us who say that we are His people falling g into sons arms.  It is almost as if sin is this love story that went the long way back to us.  We welcome these questionable activities of the mind, that we know can cause us harm in the future. 

To put down thoughts that come up against the knowledge of Truth in Christ we must reject the impressions of the devil instantly.

No, we are not perfect, but Christ in US is extremely not only important, but the perfect example of what we are to be in the family of God.

Just as the enemy  implants in our minds to make feel unappreciated.  We can reject the impressions and thoughts that want us to come up against Godliness, truth, and righteousness, we can reject the devil completely.

So that we do not end up in the lake of the fire because we cannot resist following after the lust of the flesh.  I don’t know about you, but flesh is not strong and I do not like being weak.

Do not misinterpret what I’m saying here, I’m not just speaking on sexual improprieties, but every thought that tries to come up against what is God’s way of life that’s what we’re coming up against those thoughts that try to remove us from the family of God, those thoughts that do at times catch us outside the fence of God’s protective hand.

To fix this problem all we have to do is turn back to the Lord, completely.  It is truly a simple process.

Bishop

Selfish Ambitions

For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

— James 3:16 N.I.V

I don’t want to be a selfish person at all in my faith.  In fact, I do not see myself as a person who is selfish.  I am  very aware of my inner ambitions,and i must watch myself as I work with others in our community.

I can’t walk in the favor of the Lord and be one who turns his back on service that I am required by God to give.  I want to focus on pleasing the Lord in my life.  I am not working to get myself put into the Lake of Fire for all eternity.

I don’t want my will to be done over the will of the Father.  My goal is the Lord’s purpose for my life.  I am more interested making sure that I perform according to the Lord’s instruction.

When we are so ambition within ourselves, we tend to go beyond our boundaries.

We press pass the lines that are shown us in the Spirit and we end up being punished because we have walked beyond our limits.  When we go beyond the allowance of the Spirit, we get out there and He has to remove His covering for us, and that leaves us at the mercies of the enemies attack.

Ambitions must be Spirit led, and not flesh led.  We cannot see the finished  with the eyes of flesh, but of the Spirit, so that we can be right where the Lord expects us to be once life has come to its particular close.

Men have moved into their own views for the future.  This is why we have the troubles we have, because men are self ambitious, men are turned against the Lord through those selfish motives.

Lord if you can show us how to come back to the place that you have set us, we can live out our lives more righteously through the Son of God.  Our Lord Jesus ambitions are set to to the Fathers Word, just as ours should be each and every day.
