Hello, hope you are doing alright. I know life can prove to be hard, but remind yourself that Jesus ended it all on the cross and that all you always need is Jesus Christ because He is everything.
Is it just me or do you also come across all sorts of things, sources, and people out there who only love reciting the bible verses that in their minds align with their lifestyles, which is not of God. A lot of them like to say things like Jesus preached love, why are you hating? God loves everyone no matter what, Thou shall not judge, or judge not. All these are just referred to as sugar-coating the Bible, being that they only want to hear and practice sweet and pleasure-giving verses of the Bible that align with their lives. SAD.
You can eat your cake and have Sir, you can’t cherry-pick what to practice from the bible, you are to live the entire Bible. From my own understanding, the entire Bible themes, events, generations and everything else you can think of, all lead to one ultimate theme “Jesus Christ”. There is no jumping the staircase here, you have to use your legs one by one, basically take the bible as it is, not picking only what suits your life or your situation.
The thing I find funny is that those who don’t believe in God or believe in other false gods are those who actually argue about the word of God ( the Holy Bible).
Hello, How are you doing? I hope you are doing well in Christ. I have wanted to do this for a while now. What is this? you may ask. I have wanted to write about my experience with people on their death beds. I have in recent years found myself working in a healthcare sector, in which here and there people progressively deteriorate and die, or in general suddenly pass on. Me being me ‘a night shift worker’, I have spent a few times with them talking with them on my night shifts, questioning them, just to know how life was for them. Their narratives always tend to start the same way and end similar as well. Well, I will be talking about those things here in the nearest future. Before I close, let me leave this with you.
8Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity. 9 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. 10 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.
11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. 12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
All Wicked men’s pains and contrivance which they use escape hell, while they continue to reject Christ, and so remain wicked men, do not secure them from hell one moment. Almost every natural man that hears of hell flatters himself for his own security; he flatters himself in what he has done, in what he is now doing, or what he intends to do. Every one lays out matters in his own mind how he shall avoid damnation, and flatters himself that he contrives well for himself and that his schemes will not fail. They hear indeed that there are but few saved, and that the greater part of men that have died heretofore are gone to hell; but each one imagines that he lays out matters better for his own escape than others have done. He does not intend to come to that place of torment; he says within himself, that he himself as not to fail. But the foolish children of men miserably delude themselves in their own schemes, and in confidence in their own strength and wisdom; they trust to nothing but a shadow. The greater part of those who heretofore have lived under the same means of grace, and are now dead, are undoubtedly gone to hell; and it was not because they were not as wise as those who are now alive: it was not because they did not lay out matters as well for themselves to secure their own escape. If we could speak with them, and inquire of them, one by one, whether they expected, when alive, and when they used to hear about hell ever to be the subjects of that misery: we doubtless, should hear one and another reply, “No, I never intended to come here: I had laid out matters otherwise in my mind; I thought I should contrive well for myself: I thought my scheme good. I intended to take effectual care; but it came upon me unexpected; I did not look for it at that time, and in that manner; it came as a thief: Death outwitted me: God’s wrath was too quick for me. Oh, my cursed foolishness! I was flattering myself, and pleasing myself with vain dreams of what I would do hereafter; and when I was saying, Peace and safety, then suddenly destruction came upon me.
Hello, hope you are doing well in Christ. I am doing well, I just have a lot going on for me right now, just trying to balance my life. I have been struggling in doing that, but I am recently getting back on my feet. More so, recently, I have been taking some tramadol, which is an opiate pain killer, for recurring pain. abdominal pain. Keep praying for me in regards to that. Those painkillers are horrible, they take away the pain for a while, and they also take my memory as well. They basically make me forget a lot of things that I have experienced recently. I do struggle to get back to continue to live my life. I have decided to only take panadol and not those more potent opiate pain killers anymore, I won’t be going back to my doctor for more scripts for those. I have also decided to flush them down the toilet. I wouldn’t take those anymore. ‘That’s enough about me’ , you would say. I agree as well. Well, keep praying for me regarding all this. I am struggling, or should I say I was struggling, but I am back on my feet. I have been attending university as well, I only go there for my studies. But you get more offers when you get there. ‘let me elaborate more’ I attend university most hours of the week. Ok I lied, some classes have been online as well, which makes it easier since it rains most days now, and the abdominal pain I experience is not a fan. But that’s not my point. I do come across some girls or creatures I should say, ‘because they claim not to be girls nowadays, even though it’s clear. They offer to sell their bodies through what they wear. ” I do look away, but the problem is if I look away from right to left, guess what? it’s there as well. “they are everywhere”. They offer you their sales by what they wear, they prefer to sell in full as well. A thought just came across my mind, “these girls would prefer to dress modestly doing their professional jobs rather than dressing modestly outside their professions”. I would say professionally, we come across lesser people than when in the public, except when you work in the public of course. Men do this as well, they put on weird things out there just to attract the opposite sex. “Ok, ok, ok, you might say I should stop looking then, but as I had stated earlier, I do, but it’s everywhere. Humans, we all love the attention don’t we?, but truth be told, we are all alone at the end of the day. Let’s go a bit more, the thing I am talking about here is that these girls think that the more naked they are, the more valuable they are and guess what? ‘they love it. They claim to just be themselves, and that they are just being independent, but no, these girls are attention seekers. Independent? but clinging unto your false view of beauty like your whole body won’t be a buffet for some lucky ants deep down in the ground one day.
I honestly don’t get this, we are so locked in on just living life. They say enjoy life because you only have one life. I would say live life right since you only have one life. “right is living it for God”. We make plans for tomorrow like tomorrow is sure of its own self.
Here are some things the Bible says about tomorrow.
Proverbs 27:1: Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
James 4:13-15: Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
Luke 12: 16-20: And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
I would think that we don’t like to hear such things. Of course not, since we all plan holidays 10 years from now. Puff, sorry next microsecond of our lives is not even certain. well, that is that.
These things that I have emphasised, funny enough we only think it happens among people in the world. No!! even in some churches nowadays, you can’t look at the ladies there, with the way they dress. ‘church is another Friday night for them, but this time with some motivational words. I say motivational words, because in most churches nowadays, everything is based around you for some reason out there. It’s about how you can be the better you, how you can grow as a person, and how you can live your best life now. Hey, if you are living your best life now, best believe you are going to hell. Our best lives as Born again Christians will be lived with Christ Jesus in Heaven. More so, a church should be centre on Christ, not the Hillsong worship music, not your pastor and his jokes, and not your church programmes and events. It is simply Christ. Don’t be surprised that I would say that not everyone that says that they are Christians is actually Christians, and not all churches are built around the Christ of the Bible. There are many other false Churches out there, that build their existence on false christ.
2 Corinthians 11:4: For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
Matthew 24:24: For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
This world is upside down, and some churches are as well, we are living for ourselves, when we should be living for Christ. Let me leave this with you. How can you claim to be a Christian, when you don’t even know who Christ is?
O what a world, where everything looks all good on the surface, but deep down the foundation is crying out for help. You and I claiming to be Christians honestly have no excuse not to live for Christ. If Apostle Paul went through all that and the first Christians earned a Martyr status for our Faith in Christ Jesus, we who had not gone through 0.01% of what they had been through have no excuse. I have seen it all, life is vanity, everything just comes and goes, full of lust, full of adultery. I have been there, it’s not good at all, don’t let them deceive you, they say have some fun weirdo, meanwhile forgetting that fun itself is waiting for them to also enjoy its consequences. Live for Christ, endure to the very end.
Thanks a lot for reading. The blog is a bit here and there, but that is it from me. Thanks again for reading and KEEP THE FAITH STRONG!!!! GOD BLESS YOU!!!!
Hello, How are you doing? Hopefully well in Christ and in the right state of mind. Been a while from me, yeah, but no excuse, here I am again. I am currently writing my final exams for this semester. Keep praying for me regarding this Let’s beat around the bush a bit. Life just feels like life is empty. For real, what is the purpose of life without God? (not the generic worldly God). Life is empty, it just takes and takes and never gives back. Life placed us all in a rat race, we are all on the move for the next race of life. Trends come, we follow them, a celebrity comes, we follow them, culture comes, we follow it. Same cycle every day, till our days, run down. What is life on its own without a purpose? basically nothing, other than just live it for the sake of living it.
If you decide to not run the rat race of life with the sprinters, they will run you down. For just being different, they will cast you out. For just being a Christian, they will nail you down every day. Sometimes, it does get to some of us. we do feel pressured and this makes us lay down all our good course of Christ, just to pick up a spike shoe and join the same rat race of life.
Life, what did you do to us? you made us horrible, you created a race for everyone, but made an easy way out for your special ones. Life, you created force happiness and false hope for us, meanwhile, you know the bounty on your head has been completed. Life, you blinded their eyes, so they wouldn’t listen to instructions. Christians know you do these things because you know you don’t want to feel lonely after your destruction has been delivered to you on a plate by Jesus Christ.
Christians will try to warn the non-believers, or those false Christians claiming to love God but doing otherwise, they will hate you simply because you are a Christian, you are an enemy to them. There is a target on us, they are always trying to look for your fault, any slight mistake, they will pounce on you like they are good people themselves (well, they believe that funny enough). They will be on your case like those judges in the courtroom, judging people’s faults, without being able to recognise their own faults.
Let me set the record straight, this blog is not written to make you feel good and make you think that you are a good person. It’s to make you realise that the life outside that in Jesus Christ that you are living in is nothing but a vapour, ‘eventually fades away. you can claim to love god and living for Jesus, ‘but you really do know yourself, You can deceive people with your false Christian faith. you can enjoy that false living now, it’s coming back to enjoy you. you can play us, but remember, God is not mocked”. Thanks for reading and KEEP THE FAITH STRONG!!!!!
This world is not my home, I’m just a passing through My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue; The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door, And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.
Chorus: O Lord, you know I have no friend like you, If heaven’s not my home, then Lord what will I do? The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door, And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.
2 They’re all expecting me, and that’s one thing I know, My Savior pardoned me and now I onward go; I know He’ll take me thro’ tho’ I am weak and poor, And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore. [Chorus]
3 I have a loving Savior up in glory-land, I don’t expect to stop until I with Him stand, He’s waiting now for me in heaven’s open door, And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore. [Chorus]
4 Just up in glory-land we’ll live eternally, The saints on every hand are shouting victory, Their songs of sweetest praise drift back from heaven’s shore, And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore. [Chorus]
Should I just dive into the whole thing? I will probably do it. As a kid, my teachers always ask me who my role model is? Because I loved soccer a lot, I always say Ronaldo, sorry Messi fans. Not until I looked at the whole thing 7 years after, with Christ living in me now. Who is a role model in this world, for real, we could try to be like others, but the bitter truth is that is everyone for themselves. Have you ever thought of it that your role models even care about your interest? Funny enough, my role model then wouldn’t be able to pronounce my last and first name probably. Look at it this way, do we really know what goes on in those people’s lives? Let me answer for everyone, NO!! we don’t, we only get to see what they want us to see. Do you see the low experiences? Do you see the sins they commit in the secret? Do you see the horrible things they can’t uncut in real life? It’s like we have a little bit of truth in us, we know all this, but we are so caught up in trying to feel good and always trying to relate ourselves to other humans who even will wish that we don’t in most cases. A little bit of truth is not getting us anywhere, if you have a little bit of truth, where is the other little to make it whole.
I feel so sad within me that some people still haven’t gotten the reality. Humans are too weak to live in reality. Why is it that immediately after you read or see something that is thought challenging to you, you accept it at first, but still don’t put it into practice? I forgot to add that you are always in a hurry to get through this and hop on Snapchat, the Instagram scrolling tendency as well, where will that get you in life? Only if we can double-tap our Bible verse like we do for those pictures. I feel for you, I have been there as well. The funniest thing is that all the people I told I was going to delete my social media account thought I had depression going on. Your new and not-longing reality has blinded you. Think about this, why is it that your role models get depressed, and then they deactivate their social media accounts to so call recover or find themselves? Sadly, they always pull themselves back into it, because they had been starved of that dopamine for a while.
I love you enough to tell you this, I have been there, I have seen it all, we are not getting anywhere with this lifestyle. Do what makes you happy they say. Quick thought, imagine if what makes someone happy is to hurt or kill people. You are so blinded trying to be nice and not being able to discern what is good from what is totally wrong. Even nice itself won’t want you to be too nice. To sum the whole thing up, this segment is about you being separate from the world, being in it but not of it.
How can we claim to be Christians but don’t actually stand for the main course of your faith “Christ” Christians are meant to be Christ-like, not world-like. Be of Christ, he had won the victory against the world already.
Thanks for reading and KEEP THE FAITH STRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Verse(s) of the day: Titus 3:3-7: For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Hello again, how are you doing? if not fine, remind yourself that Jesus is for you and that Jesus is everything you need as long as you are for God. I have recently been a bit off with my blog website. I would not bit around the bush, I had gone astray, I had recently encountered a lady at my workplace, who I had placed all my attention on, I can’t explain why, but I have not been close to Christ and this is the reason why. I tried to part ways with this lady several times, but the lady kept coming back, saying something and getting me. But thank God I am finally free from the lady. I would say she is very deceptive and manipulating, she wants everything to be her way, and again she is into new age things. Ever since I had encountered this lady, my life had changed for the worst, but I blame myself for starting all this with this lady at first. Here I am now, I thank God for his abundant grace and mercy, and also for the Christians around me, that made me realise that all these things are the ways the devil works to divert people from focusing on God and eventually takes all they have and leave them with nothing.
More so, I tend to procrastinate a lot nowadays, the idea to post a blog is there, the time is there, and the zeal is there sometimes, just for something less important or something not important at all to come up and steal that zeal, and leaves me empty-handed. I am begging you to remember me in your prayers, keep praying for me in regards to my life as a whole, I want Christ, but I am weak, I don’t want the things of this world, but they are all right in your face. Thanks a lot, and I really do appreciate your prayers beforehand, I pray that God grant you your heart’s desires as well. Once again, thanks a lot.
The topic of the blog is probably a saying that we have heard a lot in our lifetime, some say this makes them feel better about their lives and their situations, but truth be told, we should definitely take this saying more serious than before, especially for we Christians. Why especially for we Christians? in general because it is easier to get discouraged in regards to holding on to your faith in this world of today, a lot of things out there in the world are against us. Things that include what we see, what we hear, and what we do, even nowadays, some churches are against Christians, they say things like do whatever you want as long as you are not hurting anybody, meanwhile forgetting that they are hurting Jesus Christ. It’s like it is easier and better for them to hurt God rather than humans. Of course, it’s all about them feeling good and wanting others to give the same good they are giving to back. As sad as this is, many so-called Christians out there believe and do the same thing on a regular basis.
Be sincere, everything is way too against us Christians, but we should all know and for me personally, I know that “we are on the winning side in Christ”, so do not get discouraged over nothing. I say nothing because the things in this world are literally NOTHING. Do not let go of your faith in Christ Jesus. Keep believing and remember, Good Things Takes Time.
