I've been learning more & more by the minute how much I'm not supposed to be comfortable in this world. This isn't my home, my safe place or a area where I can blend in. This is Satan's sin boiling playground. The "prince of this world" says it all. I hear daily by people what they think about the murders, drugs & sin that is common. I read murder in the paper more than I see cars for sale.This is happening because Christians do not belong here. Freedom of choice is why the world is dead. Wanna be gay? Go ahead "that's your choice". Want to have a baby without being married? Go for it "that's your choice". Care to get drunk til you blackout? Have at it "that's your choice". Choices have destroyed the world because people are simple & do whatever makes them happy at the time. Being "happy" & being committed to God hardly ever go hand in hand, why? Because we are aliens. We don't belong. They've given more rights to homosexuals than prayer. If we say homosexuality is wrong, WE'RE wrong not what has always been wrong. Women having kids out of wedlock are given homes, food & money because they did what was wrong. They get benefits for sinning. This world isn't ours. We've just got to spread the word of God minutely. Prayer & our commitment to God is pretty much all we have. Strong Christians will give up & give in to this world in the last days. War, misery & insanity is all this world has to offer anyone. Good days are becoming rare while every news station & paper mention all the sin like a broken record.

Christians shouldn't be shocked but rather expect the madness. Praise God he's chosen us & defends us & gives us his power to make it through one day at a time.

"Why do bad things happen to good people"? Only god knows if they're "good". Actions don't define a mans faith or heart. Being good doesn't mean they're saved. This world belongs to Satan & anyone who loves this world doesn't love God.

(Ponder thoughts with our Lord)



Thank you Jesus for personally hand picking & choosing me, the biggest sinner I know.

Probably not the biggest sinner by far, you simply are aware of your own more so, which is good. Plus choice IS good, regardless of the bad choices that are rejoiced by far too many in this world. In this day and age, if choice was taken away by those in power, it would go much much worse for those faithful. For sinners often hate anything that reminds them of the truth. We must let our light so shine before men, that the conviction of the Holy Spirit can do its work in them, so that they might turn before its too late. The hour is getting closer, its nearly midnight, and even the crickets voice their concerns to those who would hear.

It saddens my heart to know you are going to walk away from that small group and never reproach, reprieve, or rebuke those spirits.
Do we love them or not?
Of we do then we will address those spirits with the Word of God and God's conviction puts those spirits in their place.

I did not say fight back when those spirits try to fight you; now stand. When we have faith and speak He does the works. Amen

Be Christ like... What would Jesus do in a house of hypocrites?

Isa 5:20; Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

1John 5:19 We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one. (NLT)

Yes, many are the afflictions of the righteous, but out of them all the Lord delivers us.(Psa 34:19)

Even Lot was afflicted by the things he saw, which is why the Lord delivered him from Sodom before destroying it.

2 Peter 2:7 and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked
2 Peter 2:8 (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); (ESV)

There is no deference today than at the time of Lot, we are all being vexed by the things that are going on this planet earth. We are the only thing stopping the wrath of God from coming to this wicked world, until all those who will be saved are saved.

Do we love them or not?

What would Jesus do you ask? He would call them fools, hypocrite or snakes... he would tell them to turn from their wicked ways & follow him. Or he might write in the sand as people looked around at each other in wonder.


Jesus has said this isn't our world because it isn't his. If we "love" the world we can't love him. Loving one another isn't the same as being in love with them.We can talk with people that are in need of Jesus. Plant the seed & God takes it from there. God already knows who's destined for heaven & hell.
Matthew 22:14

Nowhere in my post did I say I would walk away. Would I allow someone's constant worldly ways after I spoke with them about Jesus? NOPE - The Bible says to plant the seed, what ground the seed falls on depends on God. This whole love thing doesn't mean "hey Christians, go out of your way to beat it into someone & make sure they get it". No, if you would please enlighten me on what your definition of 'love' is because honestly, I refuse to love someone close up that just refuses to turn from doing & living evil. From a distance I can love them but to allow their ways interfere with my goal of living as Jesus would, no way. Nobody is going to have me deterred from my mission.

I loved them enough to keep going back, even though they let me know I was not wanted there; and then God released me, it was finished.
Just your presence sitting among them will offend them. John 3:17-21

When some of us testify, some can't believe our testimony; however, I am willing to die for the testimony of Jesus Christ in which I carry. They refuse to believe it came from the Lord even though their heart is convicted of sin, they want to fight you instead. You know like the world wants to fight. You break in to steal my stuff I will shoot you. God forbid; Lord, I pray they are never tested by the words they have spoken. Amen.

Be Christ like, sis. God has got you and He will lead you in all truth. Amen

We can not force people to believe the Word of God, neither can we force them to read the Bible. What we can do is live the Word of God in their presence, there by making them "read" you as a living epistle of Christ.

2Co 3:2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
2Co 3:3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

I must say, back when when my brother talked to me about Jesus, God & testimonies I wanted to puke. He choked me with it & I silenced him in my head. Like a crying baby I tuned him out. Back then I was in the world I liked drinking, clubbing, fornication & everything in between. My own testimony is unbelievable even to myself & its mine. God has worked miracles with me. No doubt about it but back then I loved the world more than myself or anyone for that matter. I won't gag anyone with the word of God. I don't want him to be tolerated God should be celebrated. God uses me to talk to people, sure. But as far as shoving him down their throats I won't do it. I've got to earn their trust first, let them feel easy & the rest just plays out. God plans the seed through me & he does the rest. I make myself available for people that want to know more but I don't choke them. Jesus has never shoved his word down the throats of unbelievers. He just put the food on the table & the hungry & curious came. Some ate & some didn't. I can't find a scripture where Jesus went where he wasn't wanted. He never kept going back to where he wasn't wanted. He spoke on hills & churches & people followed & came to him. When people want to talk about God he will lead them to me or me to them. My God isn't a bitter fruit or spoiled food so I won't choke anyone with his word. I don't want to be the buzzing mosquito that irritates & angers people. Listen to God & he will lead you where he needs you to be
