Blog Title: The Wrong Pattern To Follow Psalms (51:5)

(Written to fellow followers of the Christ, Jesus)

It seems that most people, including myself, have spent too much time trying to find ourselves. What am I good at? What will make me happy? What will make me happier, longer?  Have I changed or have I changed my mind?

If you’re fortunate, you’ll see a pattern in your family that will give you some clue about yourself.  You feel even more secure, if the pattern goes back for generations. You would think anything that goes back generations or 100 plus years could be trusted as fact. But what if they were chasing money, in order to take care of the family, and never got around to what they were gifted at. You might see a pattern of good careers but depression from not being satisfied.

My grandmother was a nurse and so was my mother. So I took up nursing. I didn’t ask God. I was satisfied that I was following in part of the family footsteps. I am not a nurse (not a physical nurse anyway), and I suspect that the world missed out on two great business minds, in my grandmother and mother.

After wasting money and time, not to mention countless hours of aggravation, the devil took the opportunity that my situation presented. We should look at our family traits to understand and get clues about ourselves, but it shouldn’t over-ride the plan that God has for each of our individual lives.

We could take it a step further and apply it to our relationships.  Some people look at the relationships in their family’s past and think their relationships are doomed or their relationships will flourish. This is yet another opportunity for the enemy to come into our lives, during the confusion. We follow the plans we make, attach our feelings to whomever we want. Most people wait until something goes wrong to ask God for a plan or for help. Although this is the right reaction in times of trouble, we should take God’s advice about plans along with the importance of His gifts. Only the things we do in Christ last. Everything else must me revised or becomes obsolete.

We really have to take being born again literally. Our Lord says to come to him as a child.  God says He knows what plans He has for us (Jeremiah 29:11).  In Timothy 3:16, He says He is the one who instructs us by His word. We are to give our plans to God (Proverbs 3:5-6).

When a Christian realizes who they are in Christ, and is moved for what moves God, the power of God flows through the gifts He has given them.  Miracles happen, when we are not distracted from our real goal in life. When we pursue being supernatural with our skin color, career’s, and influence in life being our uniform for our mission.  Our commitment to Christ must be more real than our commitment to the world.

Without a close relationship with God we are just guessing.  I’ve spoken to people who aren’t sure if God is closing a door or if God is challenging them to break it down.   That’s hard to deal with when you read about God giving detail instructions for the ark. (Jer 6:16)

The lives of others, television shows, and seemingly more intellectual people will have more influence in our life and its direction than our Lord. It changes our desires and gives a low tolerance for the things of God. Christian music has to sound a certain way.  Christian movies are cornney. One more scripture and you’ll explode, looking forward to being rich, instead of looking forward to seeing your King of Kings. You can’t stand the taste of water. You get the point.

I suffered from everything I have written, at some point in time.  I was studying the Bible, some time ago, and I got frustrated because things were not adding up or building the way I thought they would. I was “confused”. In frustration I said, “Lord I don’t get it. Never mind everything I’ve studied. You teach me. This is too important for me to screw up.” The Lord spoke into my spirit, “Welcome to kindergarten. Lesson one, become teachable”.

Blog Title: The Way I See It (Written to fellow believers in Jesus the Christ)

I’ve heard people refer to a neon sign on their forehead. A sign that attracts the wrong type of people to them and announcing their vulnerability. I don’t know if everyone has felt this way but some of us have, at times. And then there is the behavior you seem doomed to repeat (Romans 8:14-15)… You feel as if you spent most of your life trying to unlearn or reprogram yourself. I have discovered, by offering my life to God and counseling others, that there is nothing new under the sun (Ecc. 1:9). There are patterns of behavior and choices we make that land us in the same situations, attracted to the same type of people, eating the same type of food, and making the same excuses.

The trouble is the way we see things (ways). Perspective is how you believe what you’re doing will affect your life or how you understand it. You can almost tell what a person is thinking by the way they carry themselves and the comments they make (Matt 15:11 & Hebrew 4:16). Thus the neon sign that seems to appear on their forehead or our own. The word of God tells us that the battle is in the mind. It also says we should take on the mind of Christ Jesus (1Corinthians 2:16). I think this is a good idea sense he was able to defeat his own temptations from the devil himself. Having Jesus’s perspective is a must. Going by your own opinion or someone else’s is like pink being the new blue. Who can keep up?

You calibrate your thoughts to Christ’s thoughts by opening your mouth. (Matt 12:34) says that you capture a thought by opening up your mouth. It’s very important to make declarations about who you are, what you believe. Words of declaration are all through the Bible. Listening to Christ centered music is nice but singing along is like putting declarations to music. If your shy, at least recite the lyrics. The word of God suggests that we meditate on the word of God, in the morning and at night (Psalm 1:2 and Proverbs 23:7). When you start doing that, it’s almost like your repenting for going off track, in the evening. Soon you’ll find you didn’t get off track, and you’ve actually gone further, when you’re faithful to it. I know people say you can say a quick prayer and read your Bible five minutes a day, but if you’re not in a foxhole with bullets flying….that’s not a mark to be comfortable at. (It took me a while to find a nice way to put that.)

“I’m too busy to read my Bible and pray let alone do it for over ten minutes.” If your spouse says, “I’m too busy to spend time with you, let alone talk to you over ten minutes.” You know something has to be fixed so that the relationship can be cultivated. You would even be concerned that he/or she would be spending so much time with others that they would become an alien to you and turn their affections elsewhere. God feels the same way. (Exodus 20:5)
This is the point where you do a heart check. God knows you may not have come to Him totally devoted and attached to Him. That’s why He puts so much emphasis on giving you a new heart, (Ezekiel 36:26). In order to keep from rejecting this heart transplant you have to make declarations, take on the mind of Christ Jesus (by reading His words Psalm 119:39). Everlasting life is great but you can still be God’s people and lack peace, strength and vision because you have had your abundance in life stolen,( Hosea 4:6 & John 10:10). All it takes is one neon sign on your forehead to attract fallen spirits beings that can smell fear and search out your weak parts, (1Peter 5:8). God has given us examples of our heart and emotions so that we would understand His. We serve a living, and passionate God, (Deuteronomy 32:20-21). He’ll have no other god before him.

These days I’ve traded my neon sign, for the amour of God (Ephesians6:11-18). If my neon sign pops up from time to time, I’m covered. Before the devil can whisper something in my ear, the declaration of who I am to Jesus comes to my mind and out my mouth. Or a song rises up in me. Today, it’s Michael W. Smith’s cd, ‘A new Hallelujah’ (Shout unto God)…The enemy has been defeated and death couldn’t hold you, (Jesus Christ) down.

Hebrews 13:5-6…”I will never fail you. I will never abandon you. So we can say with confidence, The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?”

UNDERSTANDING 2 : The purpose for hell

 WHY do we need to understand the purpose for hell? 

If you don’t know the purpose for hell then you might believe that God enjoys hurting people or causing them sorrow.

God did not prepare the punishment for Satan and the fallen angels with mercy and grace in mind.  The mercy and grace we enjoy, even when we are in our sins, leads many to believe that there is no pit, lake of fire, torment etc.  The idea that this kind of eternal punishment could last forever is inconceivable.  But Satan and the fallen angels are eternal beings.

In Matthew 25:41 Jesus announced that the everlasting fire was prepared for the devil, (Satan), and his angels.  It wasn’t made with humanity in mind. Isaiah 5:13-14 says that hell has enlarged itself because of people who have chosen disobedience.  God is love, and has a place that He has prepared with humanity in mind. 1 Cor 2:9


Going to the 24hr gym for an hour– downgraded to the trampoline for 30 min…or maybe some internal crunches before I fall asleep,

The First Sin


WHY DO WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND IT?: There was a need to cleanse Heaven and punish Satan and his angels. 

            Okay.  There is a temple in heaven.  Yep. In Exodus 24: 17 , God called Moses out of the midst of a cloud.  God’s glory was like a devouring fire on the top of the mountain.  In verse 18 Moses went into the midst of the cloud.  Exodus 25: 8-9, Moses was told to make a sanctuary after the pattern that was shown to him.  Hebrews 8:1-5 sums up the purpose for the things that were made for the temple.  They were to serve as an example and a shadow of heavenly things, and act as a parable for things to come.

            Lucifer was in heaven when he sinned.  Isaiah 14:12-15 points out that he wanted to be like the Most High.  This is good to keep in mind since he still does.  Rev 12:9 says the devil and his angels were cast onto the earth.  Jesus the Christ testifies in Luke 10:18 that Satan fell like lightning to the earth.  When Adam sinned the earth was defiled.  The same thing took place in heaven, when Lucifer and his angels sinned heaven was defiled.  There was a need to cleanse heaven and punish his angels

            The process of an innocent lamb covering the sin of the people was the pattern that God gave the people.   This pattern would reveal to them that the true Lamb would come and cleanse, (not cover but cleanse) the temple in heaven and the people. The people would become the temple on earth. 1 Corinthians 3:16/ 2 Cor 6:16


There is a time for everything. (Ecclesiates 3:1-8) A time to be born and a time to die.  A time to cry and a time to laugh. Whether I cry or laugh depends on the memory and my mood, but I keep a deep current of hope that comes from the words of the Life giver, Jesus the Christ. He says in, John 14: 1 -6, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled.”…”I go am going to prepare a place for you”…”so that you will always be with me where I am.” 1 Cor 2:9 Tells us that, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.” There are even more comforting words in 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18.

So when my thoughts move between the memories of my mom’s life and her death, I remember I have every intention on meeting her by the tree of life. I remember she showed me the way to get where she is, just as Jesus showed his disciples how to follow Him. John 14:4-4 says, “And you know the way to where I am going.”  Jesus said. “No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said.
We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus told him. “I am the way, the truth, and the life, No one can come to the Father except through me.”  I am convinced that nothing can separate us from the love that God has for us. Not even death. (Romans 8:38-39)

I have studied women who can make or destroy a king. A queen on a chess board is nothing to be toyed with; and so it is with a good, upright woman who becomes a wife.  Her husband can trust her because he’s seen how she enriches his life. She brings good to everyone’s life arround her. She knows how to buy, sell, prepare for her household and the day’s work. She inspects everything so she knows what to buy, and with the money she makes, she earns more revenue. She is energetic, strong and a hard worker, so all of her dealings are profitable. Nothing in her household suffers because of laziness. She helps the poor and needy.She dresses well and dresses her husband well. Her husband is known because of her. When she speaks, her words are wise and gives instructions with kindness. Her children and her husband celebrate her.

“Charm is deceptive and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.” Proverbs 31:30-31
