I am. I’m willing to admit this. Are you? Not only am I prejudice; I’m an equal opportunity hypocrite. Let me help someone view themselves as I have had to view myself. If the person does not fit my mindset of how a person should look; I get agitated and I’m certain that if you are honest with yourself there are things about people that agitate you also. Now allow me to share with you who agitate me so that a light will be shined on this negative attitude; then and only then will it be possible for my Daddy to do an awesome work on me. I dislike viewing the following:
a)Boys and girls wearing their pants beneath their buttocks. I call them boys and girls because an adult man and an adult woman would know how to put their clothes on correctly.
b)Disrespectful people. Disrespectful people are not only disrespectful of others they are also disrespectful of themselves.
c)Pessimist. I call these people the “Glum folks”; if anyone is as old /older or may have seen Gulliver’s Travels on those classic cartoon channels (if they air them that is) then you are familiar with Glum who always said. “We’ll never make it; it’s not going to work’ we can’t do that”. Then again you maybe the “can’t can’t people”. You are always thinking or saying with your body language or your tone of voice although you maybe saying the opposite and you are just determined to verbalize why someone can’t say or do a thing. Especially if you are sharing your dreams and passions. Or, you want to try something out of the ordinary for the person you are telling what you are excited about.
d)People who throw education out the door, window or any opening available.
e)People who discredit a person for being themselves an original instead of being the carbon copy or Xeroxed copy of another.
f)Judgmental and Legalistic people. (Being prejudice is being judgmental)
Well these are all the hang-ups I can see within myself for now and I’m tired. Now I hope many of you noticed that I did not include nationality, age or sex because I have this problem with every nationality, every age group and both males and females. Though these attributes in people agitate me; I would never be discouraged from witnessing to anyone beloved of the LORD. GOD the creator of everything in the earth and knowing that humans are the apple of HIS eye causes me to love those whom I don’t know just as much as those that I do love. I have witnessed too many people hurt by CHRISTians who claim to be loving and forgiving and yet will always remind a person of another’s past instead of encouraging them about their present and future in the LORD. I know longer want a mini ounce of Shawn’s character to remain; I know longer want Shawn’s integrity to remain. I want the fullness of CHRIST JESUS which includes HIS character and integrity.
I have shared my short comings and I am not ashamed to expose myself as I did. If you will like to expose your short comings be it that you are a nonbeliever in JESUS and desire to be or you are a believer in JESUS but you have some challenges. Go to my web site http://amfbem.me and send me an e-mail or just make a comment on the site where you are reading this post.
Definition of prejudice: An unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought or reason.
Where is your trust; who do you trust? Is your trust within yourself effort; is it that you trust yourself? Many of us in the body of CHRIST make the same mistakes over and over again expecting different results and that’s insane or so I’m told. We pray to GOD about a particular thing and then we through self effort try to work through or work out the solution. That’s not placing trust in GOD. Unless the god that is being prayed to be self. Abraham put all his trust in GOD and it was credited to him righteous. All we need to do is just believe; keep our efforts off; trust in GOD when we speak with HIM, wait for HIM to answer orally or find HIS answer in HIS Word. Once the answer comes just believe; trust in HIM. Build up credit in righteousness. King David pronounced on us whom GOD credits with righteousness apart from legalistic observance. “Blessed are those who’s transgressions are forgiven; who’s sins are covered over (because David lived before the LORD JESUS was born to Mary; sins were covered. Now sins are washed away; removed from us by the Blood of the Lamb who is JESUS the CHRIST; Psalm 103:12, 1 Peter 1:18-20, Acts 22:16). Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD GOD will not reckon against his account” (Rom.4:7-8). We must trust as Abraham trusted in GOD so that righteousness will be accounted to us also. Check this out; we have read that Jews were and are a stickler about circumcision; every male must be circumcised and must be circumcised eight days after birth. They believe that this makes them closer to GOD and in part they are correct; but only in part. Take a close look at this; Abraham was considered righteous by the LORD GOD before he was circumcised! *Fact is Abraham was already sealed in righteousness; now remember this because I will later show you a revelation that will tie this together for some of you*. Abraham was circumcised as an outward sign of the seal of righteousness that he already had based on the ground of trust in GOD. He was not circumcised so that he could be the father of all who are not outwardly circumcised; yet trust in the LORD GOD completely so they have righteousness credited to them. He was also circumcised so that those who have the outward sign and walks accordingly as Abraham does or did in true faith; he will be their father also. The promise given to Abraham and his seed not seeds; is that he would inherit the world not through legalism but through righteousness that trust produces. Think about this; if legalism produced heirs than trust in GOD would be pointless and worthless. The law brings about punishment but where there is no law there is liberty. Why was or is the promise based on trusting in GOD? The promise is GOD’s free gift to us; a promise that we can rely totally on. Often we see the word “seed” used but whom exactly is the seed? Many believe that the seed is Isaac but that’s not correct. In order to find out who the seed is we must search out the genealogy; yes, that part of the bible most people find incredibly boring or worthless. (Please read Luke 3:23-38 you are not going to find what you need to see in the genealogy located in the book of Matthew). The LORD GOD appointed Abraham to be the father of many nations or as I like to say every nation because in every nation there is at least one person who trust in GOD and his faith is credited to him as righteous. Abraham is the father of faith in the Highest GOD and he got to see the LORD JESUS as well as spoke to HIM. JESUS is the beginning HIS beginning did not begin when HE was born to Mary. If Abraham focused on his circumstance which was that his body was probably going through a shortage of testosterones because the blood was not flowing in every area to function in certain organs that would bring him joy. And in his wife the chance of fruit bearing was a done deal for her; it was just over and now that she had gone through menopause she may no longer be interested in dancing the marriage dance with Abraham. If he had focused on those things I don’t know where we would be now. But bless GOD; Abraham did not focus on those shortcomings and he believed as did his wife and they had the time of their lives enjoying the dance. And because of his faithful act there are billions of us faithful children. We can’t allow fear to come in; we can’t allow our faith or trust to waiver for even just a tiny bit. We can’t afford to be in lack when it comes to our trust in GOD. As we trust in what GOD can do and HE can do all things but lie; GOD will give us power and in that power we will find it effortless to glorify the Living GOD. We must be completely convinced just as we are completely convinced that our name is our name; our child is our child and our parent is our parent. The LORD GOD is able to do just what HE said HE will do; this is HIS promise to us and HE alone without our help (unless HE provides specific instructions of what we are to do) will accomplish what HE is to do. What does your account in heaven look like is it –righteousness or +righteousness? Nothing Abraham experienced through faith was for himself alone it is also for us today. Have you trusted in GOD that it was HE that raised the LORD JESUS from the dead? This is the first step for the none believer; he/she must believe that the LORD GOD raised JESUS the CHRIST up on the third day and that HE walked out of the tomb. That borrowed tomb is empty. The second act of trust is that you believe that JESUS is the SON of the Highest GOD. Lastly acknowledge that you are a sinner and that who you are you desire to be better and that you can’t do it alone but you need the help of JESUS. Doing these things in your heart and saying them with your mouth (soft-medium or loud the choice is yours) is an oral and open confession. (Take a read of John 1 ; John 3:16 and Romans 10:9). JESUS who was and is sinless was delivered over to die because of the offenses of the world but bless GOD that it did not end there. The LORD GOD raised JESUS the CHRIST up so that we could receive HIS free gift.
*I wrote that I would show you a revelation; this is so awesome. In Romans 2:29 the scripture reads: “the real Jew is one inwardly; true circumcision is of the heart; spiritual not literal; so that his praise comes not from other people but from GOD.
Before JESUS found me thirty-four years ago; I was guilty of sin. I was not righteous in the eyes of my CREATOR GOD. I did not understand anything about the Highest GOD. JESUS was on the cross every Easter and in the manger every CHRISTmas. I never once thought about GOD or JESUS and this is because I was turned from HIM due to my sinful nature; I was born this way and so were you. I was useless not in the sense of having an ability to do task and do them well but useless in sharing my faith in CHRIST JESUS with others because I had no faith to share. We are proned only to show kindness to those who will show kindness to us or to those that we like. We witness people on the streets everyday and it’s strange to us if another person smiles at us if they are not of the opposite sex or strike up a casual conversation. We don’t ever just say “Hi” to a passerby. Now I know that in some countries or states in America this may not be true but it’s very true in the cities. As I was growing up; I remember when people just smiled and said hello to one another. I remember when neighbors looked after another child while the kids were out playing in the yard or park. I remember when drivers drove down your street and they just waved and you waved back. In doing some of those things I don’t remember anyone ever saying “who was that, do I or we know that person”. With each and every generation sin is making people colder, harsher, brazen, and disrespectful of self and others and so on. For anyone who is not blood washed in JESUS you are under the law and guilty before GOD. Your flesh is not justified in GOD’s sight because of the deeds of the law. When you study the law you will see that the law shows us our sins and that the law will not demonstrate to us how to stop breaking the law. This is why JESUS is so very vital; HE knows that it is impossible for mankind to live holy and righteous on his own merits. HE knows that we stand in need of HIM. To know the righteousness of GOD apart from the law we must see JESUS in the law. How do we see JESUS in the law? Again, we must see that what is written in the Law of Moses could not be kept by mankind and because it could not be kept it is revealed that we are law breakers. The Prophets also reveal the righteous of GOD and we see JESUS in their books. Now it must be made clear to you as it was made clear to me that the righteousness of GOD is my faith in CHRIST JESUS. You must accept and believe in JESUS the CHRIST. JESUS is not the Savior of any particular race or nation; JESUS is the Savior of the world, all mankind. All mankind which includes me have sinned and fall short of GOD’s glory. Now I am justified freely as many of you readers are and hopefully the readers who are not saved will be today after reading this blog. GOD’s grace is through the redemption of HIS beloved SON, CHRIST JESUS. The LORD GOD gave HIS SON as a propitiation/ransom (in other words JESUS is the mercy seat). Remember how the high priest would sprinkle the blood on the mercy seat? Well, JESUS was drained of HIS precious blood on the cross which washed away our sins. It did not cover up our sins; HIS blood removed our sins through faith to demonstrate to us HIS righteousness. Did anyone notice that GOD operates in faith? Well HE does and because HE operates in faith we must operate in faith also. Remember this, how Moses placed blood on the door post of the home and all who were in there were saved from the judgment of death. Nothing has changed today, GOD must see the blood of HIS SON, CHRIST JESUS on us which saves us from the judgment of death. The blood of JESUS does not wash off of us; HIS blood remains on us so not only are our past sins forgiven but our present and future sins are forgiven. However, knowing this does not give us a right to live hap hazardly in the daily practice of sin. No, there are times when we will sin unwarily or by mistake and sometimes we allow fear to get the better of us. GOD knew this and this is why our salvation is secure we don’t have a need to ask for salvation over and over again; we don’t have a need to repent over and over again. JESUS going to the cross one time was enough and was a done deal; this is why HE said it is finished because HE completed to the full everything HE came to do and we are no longer in bondage to anyone or anything. GOD demonstrates to us that HIS righteousness is just and that HE is the justifier of anyone who will believe in HIS SON, JESUS. Here is a check list to find out where or who you are in CHRIST JESUS.
a)Is your throat an open grave, do you lie, do you speak with deception, do you speak discouragement?
b)Do you speak continuous profanity, do you kill the hopes and dreams of others because you don’t see or understand what they want to do in life; do you speak hate; do you speak disrespectfully of others?
c)Are you always running towards trouble or eager to hurt or kill another and there is bloodshed?
d)Because you are miserable do you destroy things that are in your path be it through conversation or deed?
e)Do you know or understand what true peace from GOD is?
f)Do you know who GOD is, do you respect GOD, and do you use the word “damn” after the name of GOD or a word that sounds close enough to that, that others think that, that is what they heard?
Maybe I’m standing alone in being ignorant to many of the things that my DADDY has for us all. If so; cool. At least I’m able to admit that when it comes to the things of the Spirit; I don’t know much. I was taught early in my walk with JESUS that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of GOD can say that JESUS is cursed (anathema) and no one can say JESUS is LORD except by the Holy Spirit. I still acknowledge this to this day and will continue throughout eternity that of all the pseudo-christians in this world; unless we have the Holy Spirit residing within; it is impossible for one to proclaim orally and without prejudice that JESUS is LORD and that HE is not cursed! There is only one true and living GOD; one SON who is LORD of all and one Holy Spirit. Now by the Holy Spirit there are various gifts given. There are various ways of serving (ministries) from JESUS the LORD and various kinds of activities or modes of working from GOD who works all things in everyone. Each person is given the particular manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. These are the manifestations with which we are given and with which we flow without stress of effort on our part.
1.Word of wisdom
2.Word of knowledge
4.Gifts of healing
5.Working of miracles
7.Ability to judge between spirits
8.Ability to speak in various tongues
9.Ability to interpret various tongues
The Holy Spirit is the one who is at work in all these gifts which are manifested and He gives them to whomever He wills. Just because it is possible to operate in various gifts from time to time or maybe just the once; does not mean that we are anointed to flow in that particular gift with ease often. I desire to be used in most of all seven manifestations of the gifts; however, I know that I’m anointed to flow freely in one or two. I refuse to allow anyone to bully me or talk me into being anyone that I know that GOD has not anointed me to be. The Holy Spirit dwells within me and me within Him and I am secure in knowing that I am a part of a much larger picture. It’s not at all about me, my family or the ministry that my DADDY has given to me. It’s all about the body of CHRIST. There are so many wonderful members that make up the body; those who are seen and unseen; those who are known and unknown and yet we all have our parts to live and operate as the Spirit wills. The LORD GOD has arranged each part of the body just as HE desires; unfortunately, we come along and rearrange the body parts to fit our agenda. Calling ourselves titles that was not given to us or selling pseudo gifts to unsuspecting and ignorant people due to a lack of knowledge in the Word of GOD. Imagine for a moment if you will the illustration I will provide to make this clearer to your understanding. There are and have been many entertainers who have undergone plastic surgery because they did not like the way GOD placed their eyes, nose, lips, ears, cheeks, chin, bust and so on. The thing is, we may be able to get away with the first surgery and we may be able to squeak by with a second; however, before long we have rearranged and re-arranged so much that we are unrecognizable and have taken on the appearance of some type of freak. It’s the same in the parallel of the spiritual; unfortunately there are many spiritual freaks out there because they have taken it upon themselves to rearrange themselves without the anointing, blessing, consecration and ordination of GOD. When GOD sets us or anything for that matter in the order in which HE desires; its sheer perfection. When we put our clay hands on anything not orchestrated by the Spirit it’s a disaster. Every single one of use is necessary in the body and none of us are bestowed with less dignity. GOD sees fit that the most attractive parts of the body are what’s seen. Think about this; what if our inner body where on the outside and our outside body where on the inside. Don’t you think that would be a mess; I know I do. The plan is that there will be no division; yet, we have allowed the enemy to infiltrate the church and behold we have schisms here and there. We are supposed to be concerned with one another; when one suffers we all suffer; when one is honored we all are honored. Ever stump your baby toe before? Notice how all the toes and the foot are affected by the one injured toe. It seems as though the baby toe is not important and is useless; that is until it is hurt or missing. Together we are the body of CHRIST and individually we are members of HIS body. It is GOD who appoints these to be equipped to work throughout in our communities.
e.Gift of healings
h.Varieties of tongues
Of all that is written within this chapter; has anyone noticed just what the most desirable gift is? Without that gift it is impossible to have the compassion that JESUS gave us a blue print to follow. JESUS was and is always moved by compassion because of HIS love for us. Love is the desired and best gift that we should have but not just love; we should have Agape the greatest kind of love. Agape is unconditional love; the love that sees past faults and dislikes. See the greater picture who is JESUS the CHRIST.
What makes a Christian worldly? Would you recognize a carnal Christian if you were in there presence? Most people wouldn’t; because most people don’t know what it means to be a carnal Christian. Before I provide the definition to my questions; allow me to explain that it’s impossible to have a true encounter with JESUS the CHRIST and desire to remain the same. We all must grow up and mature into the knowledge of who we are in CHRIST JESUS. We all must know that there is a vast difference in being religious and being in relationship with CHRIST JESUS. No baby born in the world remains an infant; a toddler; a youth or an adolescent. The baby will one day become an adult at least in chronological age if not as well in maturity. I was taught by my grandmother that being the legal age of an adult; eight-teen, does not make one mature or fully grown. What would your perception be if you witnessed a ten year old still being breast fed or fed from a bottle? How about seeing a sixteen year old with a pacifier in their mouth? Last but far from least; a twenty-one year old having their diaper or pull-ups changed and they have no mental or physical disability? Those examples are just a few; yet, our DAD is witnessing some of HIS kids who should be mature within HIM in that state. There are far too many Christians who are living defeated lives because of their choices. Because they don’t know who they are. They will confess that they are saved; that JESUS is the Son of the living GOD; that JESUS died for their sins and rose again on the third day. Yet, somewhere in that is the absence of faith that JESUS wants them to be overcomers. They don’t have a clue as to who they are in CHRIST JESUS. They don’t know what promises have been given to us and that those promises are for today not when we enter into heaven. Our FATHER is light and in HIM is no darkness at all. Instead of listening to the living FATHER they continue to listen to the father of lies; whose mission is to kill, steal and destroy lives. To get you back at every cost and he will use everyone and everything that you love more than the LORD GOD who we are supposed to love with our whole heart, soul and strength. Too many Christians are still being fed with breast milk because they have not actively eaten at the big kids and adults table. When will you be hungry for some bread, steak, potatoes and unfermented wine? We have teeth; we can cut through and chew a solid substance; we are not getting the nutrients that our bodies require from a liquid diet. This is why we are not immune to sin. Until we get up off our hips; walk over to the table for the older kids and adults; pull out the chair; sit down and dine; we will continue to remain just where we are. Weak and defeated. The weak and defeated don’t have in their arsenal words of encouragement and love. The weak and defeated see people and things just as they are and not through the eyes of CHRIST. So why are there so many of us weak and defeated? Because of carnality. Now let me share with some what it means to be carnal / worldly. Carnality / worldliness is to be characterized by the appetites the desires of our flesh. We are spiritual beings; yet, we operate in a mere human existence. We are led by our flesh instead of being led by our spirit; who should be living in the Holy Spirit. Do you or do you know others who operate in jealousy, have fits of anger, cause or participate in division? These are some of the reasons why we have so many denominations; yet, we are supposed to be lifting up the one and only Savior and LORD; JESUS. Who am I and who are my fellow coworkers but servants whom the LORD has trusted to bring the lost to the Saving Grace of CHRIST JESUS. In some cases when I’m witnessing I maybe planting or watering; I don’t know. Nor do I care just as long as my heavenly FATHER get’s the increase. I have a promise that I will be rewarded by the work that I do through JESUS. Let me flip this another way; those who tear others down and encourage people to remain where they are; to keep them from JESUS; who run to evil will also get their just reward because of the work that they do. When builders lay a foundation to a building; we don’t see the foundation of the finished product. No, the foundation is hidden by what is used to overlay the foundation. However, when the building is destroyed we get to see the foundation. Here I will boast in my big brother; I have a sound foundation in my LORD JESUS and the foundation is indestructible. The mortar used is the blood of CHRIST JESUS. The overlay is HIS Word so that when I am pressured on every side; when I feel the heat; when I feel the pressure of the boisterous winds and the beating of the rain and hail. I stand. While everything and everyone around me is destroyed; I remain because of JESUS CHRIST and not because of me. Often, I am allowed to be placed in the refiner’s fire. What is the refiner’s fire? The refiner’s fire will bring out of me all that is not like HIM; if there be any hidden impurity found in me; it will be burned up. Who is the refiner? The LORD GOD through the LORD JESUS CHRIST. JESUS wants to present me and my siblings to the FATHER and we must be elegant and polished. We must not only confess JESUS as our Savior; we must also confess JESUS as our LORD. There is no separation in JESUS as Savior and LORD just as there is no separation between water and wet. Help yourself to reading 2 Peter 2:18-22. It took me awhile to understand just what it means to be the temple of the one and only living and Holy GOD. Maybe you don’t know what that means. This means that you are the place where the FATHER, the SON and the Holy Spirit actually reside. You are their residence. Imagine your home is a huge mansion; a gated dwelling with security police; attack dogs; high tech alarm system; close circuit TV the works. I mean no one will be able to come into your home without your knowledge and I’m certain that you have hired and provided the very best security known to mankind because you desire to protect your privacy and your possessions. No one will be allowed to enter your home without being given access granted. Okay, all that is done for a temporary dwelling. Now, imagine the Holy GOD; creator of heaven and earth and all its inhabitants; the FATHER of the Savior and LORD our soon coming KING; the Prince of Peace; JESUS. Having HIS home invaded; access was granted by you the security system to have HIS privacy invaded to have HIS property destroyed by all things unholy. All of HIS rooms have been used as brothels and HE has to be held hostage to participate in these acts. What kind of temple is this? We are allowing a Holy GOD; a Savior and LORD; a healer, deliverer, an advocate, a provider and so much more to live in a slum; a place with a condemnation posting on the door; a place that is not fit to be lived in. However, JESUS is willing to remain because if there is anyone who can come in; live; clean; deodorize; disinfect and make the temple elegant it’s JESUS. To find out what other carnal / worldly habits we may have; check out Galatians 5:19-21 and then make up in your mind to cease and desist because you have the power to overcome the works of the enemy in your life. Become that refined; polished and elegant person that JESUS know you can become. Ask HIM to baptize you in the Holy Spirit so that you may live according to Galatians 5:22-23. http://amfbem.me
Let me begin by writing; that I love education. I enjoy learning new and adventurous things that I can at some point in my life use. However, as much as I love education and believe that everyone should grasp knowledge with everything they have and more. The love that I have for wisdom far excels the love that I have for knowledge. Everyday I’m always watching, listening and reading to obtain more knowledge. Everyday I’m always asking, watching, listening and reading to obtain the direction that only wisdom can provide. Now having written this; it’s not about the ability to speak eloquently; to be educated or to look a certain way. We are all ministers of the gospel that have a relationship with CHRIST JESUS and we should all want to share with others who HE is. We should all want to share how the LORD JESUS has changed our lives from darkness into light. However, we can’t do that if we are slipping and sliding into darkness expecting to be a witness of light. Who would be willing to listen? Many people share with me how they don’t like to attend worship service because there are hypocrites there. Well if that is your reason; why do you attend school, why do you go to work, why do you socialize with people at all? I’ll tell you why you go to school; because it’s the law to complete your general education-so you have to or you want to. You go to work-not because you want to but because you want that money. You socialize with others because people need people. I’ve never heard anyone repeat that they don’t do those things because they are hypocrites. So in essence there really is no excuse why we would not share our testimony and the crucifixion of JESUS with others unless we ourselves are hypocrites. When the Holy Spirit resides inside of us we have no need to be afraid of whether we will be received; being received or not are not the issue. After all there were many who witnessed JESUS heal the sick, raise the dead, open blinded eyes, cause those who could not walk to walk, cast out demons, opened the deaf ears and fed the hungry. And some of those witnesses still denied that HE is the SON of the living GOD. Don’t consider failing because you don’t fail when you try. Also, keep this in mind; you don’t know if you are the one who has come to plant or to water; that is none of our concern. Just know that we are being used by the living GOD through the power and wisdom found in JESUS CHRIST and that HE will get the increase. Maybe what I’m sharing will only be caught by those who walk in the wisdom of the LORD GOD because to pull on the wisdom of the FATHER is our growth of maturity. Everything that the world considers to be wise will die. Everything about the LORD JESUS is eternal. I shared in former publications that we lack nothing because we belong to the FATHER. The world is dying and is dead to those things eternal. People are born, vibrant and they die. Plant life is green or full of vibrant colors then they die. The lakes, oceans, ponds, rivers and seas which once held life in them are known to dry up and die. Nothing here in this world which was created to be everlasting lives forever once sin entered. The things of the living GOD are hidden from the world but are given to the children of the living GOD. Leaders of old and the leaders of today have never gotten this and because they don’t get it; it’s not shared throughout the countries. It was the leaders of old who were used by satan to fill the hearts of men to go along with the crucifixion. Because of sin there has been division in and out of church. The Word of the LORD has proclaimed “no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no one’s heart has imagined all the things that GOD has prepared for those who love HIM.” Our FATHER has revealed all hidden things to HIS kids and to HIS kids alone. However, to know these hidden revelations we must have the Holy Spirit living within us. The Holy Spirit is our teacher and He only proclaims those things that pertain to JESUS CHRIST. He is the one who searches the deepest depths of what we are to know. After all, no one can expound on who the LORD JESUS is unless He knows HIM intimately inwardly. The Holy Spirit is the very Spirit of GOD HIMSELF. Once we have the Holy Spirit living within us we no longer have the spirit of the world within us. We only have room enough for one god in our hearts and we must choose which god we will serve; satan, self or the True and living GOD; JESUS the CHRIST. The Holy Spirit provides us with the ability to rightly evaluate everything; we are not legalistically judge; however, we will have the ability to know a fruit tree by what fruit is produced. When we search for those things which are in the dark; we are of the dark. When we search for those things which are in the light; we are of the light. In CHRIST JESUS there is no darkness; no sin can be found and neither should there be any darkness and sin be found in us. “Who has known the mind of the living GOD who has absolute control? Who will counsel HIM?” Those who are sold out much like myself have the mind of CHRIST. Praise GOD my DADDY; thank YOU, JESUS. http://amfbem.me
To the household of faith we are so greatly loved and are partakers of our FATHER’s great kindness through our LORD JESUS. In JESUS our LORD we have from the FATHER the power to speak with a depth of knowledge which cannot be obtained through school or religion but through the Spirit of Wisdom. JESUS our LORD has a testimony concerning us which is established. We stand in lack of nothing concerning spiritual gifts; however, I’d like to add that we lack nothing in the natural either. What we stand in need of in the natural is not given because we are not asking appropriately or to phrase it according to scripture “we ask amiss”. For natural request our motives must be pure and we must be responsible. Only through JESUS our LORD can we maintain until HIS re-appearing. Our living, loving, providing GOD; is faithful even though we prove sometimes to be faithless. GOD our LORD called us; HE looked for us until we heard HIS call and where found. We never called out to HIM; we never went searching for HIM and HE has never been lost; we were or are depending on your relationship with HIM. Our communion with HIM is all through CHRIST JESUS our LORD. So, now that we know that we are enriched and that we lack nothing; why is there so much competition among us? Why can’t we agree in what we say; since what we speak is to come from the mouth of JESUS our LORD? HE does not change; HE is the same yesterday, today and eternally; what we speak should be found in HIS Word. There has been a split for far too long; we are not good witnesses with such differentials. We all should be of one mind and heart; we are not to promote ourselves through various doctrines of denominations. We are to lift the LORD JESUS higher for all to see. Which denomination has the power to baptize us? Which denomination died for our sins on the cross and rose again with all authority given from the FATHER? And I include which man or woman died and rose again for the salvation of humankind? Tell me; so that I can have a clear understanding of being in the wrong. I hope that I’m not being conceited; however, my mission is to carry and deliver the Good News with all boldness, encouragement and inspiration. My desire is to see the lost found and saved in the name of JESUS. To encourage all who have lost all hope. To inspire us all to not give up; to keep the faith regardless of what we see. I love to learn; especially those things that will inspire me to say if they can do it so can I. And if it’s been done once with success; it can be done again by me with GOD’s help through the LORD JESUS. I wrote that to write this; I’m not the most educated woman and I’m certainly not the dumbest. When I need wisdom; which daily it proves worthy to ask the owner for what belongs to HIM. Wisdom is not obtained through books, tapes/CD’s/DVD’s; school; our environment or our experience. We get knowledge from all those avenues. GOD is awesome in that HE will use what we consider wisdom to confuse what is happening. Take for instance the situation we are in today economically; we look to the government for answers when the answer is found in JESUS. To keep millions of employed personnel out of work to shake the finger and say there; is foolish. Everyone is being affected and the overall victims are the babies; the sick and the elderly. GOD has already ordained that the world using its own wisdom will not come to know HIM. So stop fighting a losing battle; give up; come to JESUS be Saved make HIM your LORD; cultivate a relationship with HIM that is personal and do away with religion and tradition. The LORD GOD who is not nonsense at all; yet, viewed to be nonsense is wiser than all of humanity’s wisdom; which is none. The LORD GOD who is not weak at all is stronger than all of humanity’s strength combined. To the called; consider yourself. Many of us have been battered by life and abused; told that we were unloved; unwanted; nothing and so on. However, the CREATOR of humankind placed a blueprint within our DNA. We just don’t know it; we’ve been surrounded by dream killers but I’m here to write that you are the next world shaker; you are the next history maker; you can fulfill those dreams. Stop living by the worlds standards; it’s gotten you nowhere so far. Stop being ashamed of your past; look forward to what you can do in JESUS in the future. When others glorify you; remember to give glory to GOD the FATHER and to JESUS the LORD. Boast about how JESUS picked you up when you were in a fallen state; how HE imparted HIS holiness, HIS redemption, HIS righteousness, HIS unity and HIS wisdom on you. HE did it for me; so I’m assured that HE will do it for you. http://amfbem.me
