Joshua reminds me…

Reading Joshua over the last three months has reminded me of the Continual Spiritual Battle we face daily in our Journey.  I too am reminded of the Commands to which God put into place, and expected those who come into an agreement with Him to follow.  I see many Christians becoming more in tuned to Worldly things, and hear them speak of how God blessed them with their desires… worldly desires.  

Michelle speaks of her Blessing as she strokes her new baby’s crown.  She met Phil in church, dated him a few times and fell madly into bed with him.  Seven months later she can no longer hide her expanded waistline and they are encouraged to marry.  The Ladies of the Lamb excitedly have a celebration in her/Michelle’s honor; both baby shower and wedding.  After the two unite I am invited to a retreat where the Ladies of the Lamb encourage our Blessing Testimonials… and once the event was over I realized most of the testimonials were how Flesh took Hold of an opportunity to work Flesh and call it God. 

I cried… I cried… I cried.  When I see a man of the cloth fall I cry… I get angry… I cry… and I become lowly in my heart.

Do we ever do the same when someone we know, who is a professing Christian Falls? 

Do we ever mourn for their soul instead celebrate their Flesh?

I am reminded tonight of how the prodigal son came back to his Father’s House and was welcomed with opened arms… while the other son stayed Home and was Faithful to his Father.  There is this part of me that at times wants/desires to do the same… go get my desire.   And yet for some reason over the last two years, while this desire was incredibly strong there seemed to be a Huge Wall which kept me from my desire.  Into those years a Desperation Overwhelmed me… like a Flood it would come, and for some reason I knew that desperation meant it was my Enemy.  Jesus tells us:  no one knows if the Wind should blow, nor do we know from whence it comes or where it blows.   The Spirit is the same; yet also there another spirit and this spirit works in the same manner.  You do not know when your enemy is ready to blow through your house and he is able to make it seem as if the Sweet Fragrance is God.

Honestly my idea of Christians who are always celebrating the flesh reminds me of when the chosen ones were in the Wilderness waiting and they sat down to eat and drink and then arose to PLAY.   I am not the Hostess with the Mostess at the Church I attend; no I am not the popular gal.  And too they seem to believe I am much too sad to be a Christian.  I must repent and be restored!   Then again I could go after my desires of heart and give the Lamb group a great testimonial.  There is only ONE issue…

His

NAME

is

J E S U S

Yes, I seem to have Him on my mind, and on my heart all the time.  My desire is still the same; yet the desperation seems to be diminishing… as I say His name and the many other names He goes by… recently, the one I am prone to use is: ADONAI

I may seem sad… yes my heart is lowly… and I won’t pretend

I may seem out of touch… yes my mind is on Him… and I do not eagerly move in your direction

I may seem hard of heart… yes I do not like sin… and I don’t encourage it

I may seem stoney faced… yes I do not trust man or woman… nor my own heart

It seems to others I have lost my Joy… yes unless you talk of God and His wonders… then you might just see the glimmer in me come alive.

Solomon was right: nothing new under the sun… one would think that with all the knowledge we have obtained through these years one would think man and woman would have grown up… but nothing new under the sun… we are the same… we are the same. 

Our battle doesn’t end until we reach our final destination… standing with Jesus.  We who are Born Again took a step into His Kingdom… the Promised Land… and we are expected to do as Joshua did… be Courageous… know that God goes before you… He will deliver your enemies into your hand… and it will be He who keeps your steps… and He will not let your foot slip… and when you run He will not let you fall.  Courageous is Trusting God… Knowing God Will… He is Able to do… and He is Willing.   Be Patient in the Waiting… and do not allow your flesh to creep in with Logic to perversely go after what you want.  Face those Fears… Be of good Cheer; and you can still wear your Battle Zone Face.  God doesn’t Judge you in Appearance anyway… He always looks into the inward parts. 

 

Thoughts on a Blog

Two Biscuits and Gravy.  Yummy.  My stomach could only eat a part of this early morning treat.  I decide:  share with the dogs.  They liked it too.

The early morning:  cold and raining; yet Spring has it’s way of saying Hello.   My little window calls to me.  Not literally, yet this is where I find myself these early mornings and late evenings.   There I sit on ottoman behind this small window reaching for one of the tiny books I call Treasures to read… there they are, to the right of me.  Today’s read:  ” The Imitation of Christ”.

Four hours pass by as I get caught up in the second page of the book… “The Imitation of Christ”.   I begin to ponder and ask questions to God.  If submission to Thy Will is the Only Call we have on our lives then what does it matter to others what we are doing?  And if we as Believers (True followers of Christ) Trust that this is the Only Call on our lives isn’t it true that the Only One we are held accountable to is God?  We need to understand that those who God puts in our path may be there for only a season, and others may be there longer; yet over-all those who are Believers will be with us Forever.

Unemployed since Jan 01 of 2012 I find myself having trouble not being busy.  There are days I truly enjoy sitting outside on comfy seat with legs up in the Sun.  56 I am and who would have figured… I begin to notice my own body.   My body has features I like; yet I wonder to myself if it is my own perception of what I like.  Another may think differently.  I am sure others notice my slender ankles, yet easily seen are purple areas whereby my veins gather more blood there than I would like for them to.   My doctor says:  for such a young woman you have the most unusual anatomy.  I began to giggle as I heard the excitement in his voice; as if he had stumbled upon something he might further study.    Cannot shave legs any-longer; for if I do the sharp edge might just cut the thin skin around the ankle.   Amazement filled my face as I looked down to see the tiny puncture spraying dark blood all over my white bathroom.   I did not react at first… it was as if I could not believe blood would spray so fast from a tiny puncture.  No panic.  I reached for a hand towel and put it under cold water and wrapped it around the ankle.

Cannot look at clothing magazines anymore.  My eyes tend to look at curves rather than the clothes I am suppose to select for purchasing.  Our Society is made up of Imagery… lots, and lots of Images.  Insecurity sets in.   Adam had no other image to compare Eve to; other than his own.   We are a Wasteful Society.  We are a Wonton Society.  Our eyes send messages to our brain every second.  We are a Vexed Society.   Any man or woman who is able to be Content with what God has Given is a Blessed man and woman.

Nehemiah 5 reminds me of today.  We sell ourselves, our children, and put all we have under Bondage to Increase the Pockets of the Rich, and further the New Generations to Bondage.  For they (the Rich) own us.  They own all we have, and own the Rights to Dictate what we will have, what we will own, and what we Need to Invest in.  They set up their Laws to Take with the Promises of Relief.   If you own what you have be Thankful to God.  Yet remember:  even what you own will go another when you die.   Why is it we work so hard to Obtain; yet we do not get to Enjoy our harvest?  Should not the one who worked hard in the Field get to enjoy his/her harvest?   Not sure why, but it Tastes so good and refreshing to me when I take Lemons and squeeze them into a Glass over Ice… stir and drink it.

My brother visits.  As he sits and looks at Jewels I have collected over the years I hear him say:  hope you remember me in your will.  I have no will… I say in my heart.  56 and I get an urge to seek out a Jeweler to sell those Jewels to.  People have a way of perceiving things of Greater Value than what one really has.  It is sad when you think that by owning something of Value it would mean others only seek to Obtain from you.

I haven’t become hardened toward giving, I only hesitate to give.  I tended to be a Very Generous Individual until I went through some seasons of Usury.  Now I can Understand why God has us Test every Spirit which comes our way; not only certain spirits… but EVERY spirit.

Is it wrong to be Angry while being a Christ Centered Individual?  No… Yes… depends.  With Malice of Heart to go after someone for the cause of anger… to seek them out, try and destroy them, or even Kill that spirit is not exactly Justifiable Righteous Anger.   Yet I do believe in praying on the matter that one could ask God to Tend to this Anger, and Tend to the one who angered you.   God would be willing to Repay them for their wrong doing.  God would be willing to bring Justice to their Door.  God would be willing to bring a Warning and Judgment upon their head.  God would be willing to use you in a Legal way to bring Justice.   Yet do not Allow your Flesh to Justify a Judgment or Action.   There are times when my mind creates scenarios of Judgment upon a wicked individual.  I begin to weep; for it hurts deeply to know that such a pain would create a Torment inside of my mind.

Every single person ever born on this planet has a secret door… the Darkest Area of the Mind.  Yes, it is there.  You won’t know it until something unlocks it.  We are Good People you say?  I don’t believe anyone is Good.  If you know Good inside of an individual… then that Good could only be of God.

 

Maggie, my cat has been routinely waking me up at 6 a.m. and this morning I did not want to rise, but I did.   Brush teeth, fix hair and my actual alarm sounds.   This early Sunday morning I hear another David sermon… ah, but this sermon is different.   Pointing out the Three Duties/Commands set forth for a King in Deuteronomy… the laws of a King set forth by God.  The King shall not take for himself many Horses.  Yes, Power and Might.  The King shall not take for himself much in Gold, nor Silver.  Yes again, Riches beyond measure… or, Greedy.   The King shall not take for himself more than one wife, nor have many concubines.  Ooh, there is that thing men tend to do while in power… Lust.   For doing so the King will FALL.

King Solomon… my goodness such Wisdom given to one man and he had Much in Gold, Much in Fashion, Much in Horses, and … uh oh, there is that Lust again… many, many women.

Set Apart:  consecrated, anointed unto God to do a service unto Him.  So that means we who are should be Set Apart as an Example to others… right?   As a Christian we should not do as they do… who by the way are they?  Others?  Other Christians, or ?   So, we are ALL sinners right?  So who are they?  This is the Biggest Topic on my mind lately… They who go about doing what is right in their own eyes and seemingly By With IT!  Ok, so I go to church.  I sit and listen to the sermons… week after week; yet I just do not feel FED.  It is like Christianity 101 all over again… since… hmmm?… let us just say YEARS?  Yet the Word says:  meat in due season.  Who’s season?  The Church… or my season?   Don’t complain just eat and don’t complain.  :0)

Fill me up with Carbs and Sugar and what do you get?  Fatty Fatty Two by Four… a wide spread… and can’t get through the kitchen door.  Well that will teach ya huh?   This is what Church reminds me of these days… refrigerator door swings open, and we grab only the Good Stuff for the belly.   Yes, the Quick and Easy loaded down with Carbs or Sugar.  The ways of man are only good to his belly… that belly of Lust.   Solomon and David must have been awful lovers, because they became Quickly Bored with the many women they sought after.   Eyes of Lust and Desire… just like that refrigerator.  Quick Fixes in a Society filled with many Pictures of Lust and Greed.   Much like Leadership…

- using people to get what they want

- using methods to get what they want

- taking advantage of their authority to get what they want

- devising in their mind ways to get what they want

See it… imagine it… go for it.   Taste not, Touch not of the Fruit of this Vine… for when you do you surely will Die.   Sin leads to Death.  But oh, we all die anyway don’t we?  Yes, and then there is the second death; to which Preachers do not seem to want to Sermonize on that subject.  Ever wonder why so many Christians Sin so Much?  I do.  I have been wondering a hell of a lot lately.  Do NOT as they do.  Now where have I heard this before.  Oh yes, Jesus says:  do as they tell you to do, but Do Not do as they do.  Therefore while in Church you should heed to do as they say to do, by authority; yet Do NOT as they do.  You may ask… what is it that they do?

- women’s prayer group.  To Help women.  Women tell their despairing stories.  Women inside the group go tell their husbands and boyfriends of the despairing stories spoken.  Their husbands and boyfriends are also in Help Groups.   Their Husbands and Boyfriends speak among themselves about what was told to them… pointing out these women who spoke their despairing stories.  Then these despairing women become Targets for men who seek out such women.   I use to wonder how such Wolves would be able to come into the Church and we Christians would be so willing to Allow those Wolves to sit among us.  AA groups are such.  No, not the man who actually wants/desires to change and become rehabilitated, but those who are TOLD that in order for them to become better members of Society they need to attend a church, act right, pay attention to other Christians to mirror image yourself, mingle among them, make friends, and give back to others so you don’t get caught up inside yourself.    I am sure AA and other rehabilitative groups believe this will help one to get on the right path… yet I am seeing a FAR GREATER DAMAGING EFFECT. 

Jesus tells us that those who Love others who do Good to them DO NOT PROFIT anything.  Yet if you LOVE those who treat you Unfair, Mistreat you, Hate and Despise you, Abuse and Misuse you then you will profit by it.  Jesus says:  to pray for them.   I believe He too means:  to pray for yourself also… because anyone who puts me through hell I need to pray for myself.   Recently I was put through what seemed like hell with such a Wolf, and honestly I wanted so badly to take matters into my own hands.  It was the most frustrating, gut wrenching, despairing feeling I have ever felt in my life.   Today I believe the Deep Down Belly Cries were of the Holy Ghost.   The Spirit of God was trying to Help me Come to my senses.   When we are doing things in our own way we LOSE all Discernment.   Ever wonder why I capitalize certain words?  I understand that a Teacher would have Red correction marks all over my writing, but there is a point to my madness.  Discernment… we are losing it… “will God find Faith in all the earth?”

- want a baby?  get a man, but that will not necessarily get you a husband

- don’t want a husband; yet you want a baby?  science can take care of that for you.  you don’t need God.

What happened to the days when women who were thought to be of God actually prayed and believed God for what they prayed for?

What happened to David and Solomon… God’s chosen to be King?   What happened to them?

Not certain as to what happened to Solomon… wise, yet stupid.  David on the other hand was a man who came to his senses… and Repented.   I use the term: stupid to make a point.  We are ALL stupid, no matter how much Wisdom is given to us.  Yes, it is an oxysmoron… like me.   True Wisdom is of God… Worldly wisdom changes as people do.   Solomon was right in his saying:  Nothing New under the Sun, no, nothing New.  We think we have progressed and yet we are still doing the same things… over and over and over again… which makes us Stupid.  We have become as the Word tells us:  ‘ wise in our own eyes’.

They Come to their Senses

When Seeds of Repentance

Are Sown

Hearts Do Change

They Come to their Senses

When Seeds of Repentance

Are Sown

Hearts Do Change

God, He always remains the same

Father forgive them, for they know NOT what they do.

Sin leads to Death

Sin leads to the Second Death Eternal

Let Not your heart be Troubled, nor be Dismayed

When you see them profit by deeds of evil doing Do Not envy them

If the Darkness within them is Light unto them, how Great is that Darkness

For we were Called unto by God

We were Set Apart unto Him

We were Chosen to be His Own

By Example

Walking in the Ways of Christ

The Cross should be ever before us

His shadow is upon us when He is ever Before us

His Shadow Hides our Flesh that it may NOT be seen

The devil is swift and comes in many forms

The Wilderness is a Time to Reflect

The Wilderness is a Time to Ask

The Wilderness is a Time to Listen

The Wilderness is a Time to Change Direction

Stop going in Circles

Each Door is Closed; except for One

Cannot go Down

Cannot move Forward

Cannot move to the Left or the Right

Only One Way Out

LOOK   UP    LOOK   UP     LOOK   UP

Song spoken to me by the Lord/Holy Ghost.

At Night I love to Dance, among the Trees in Life’s Romance

in Harmony, as Your wind blows over me.

At Night I love to Sing, the melodies within my Heart… unto Thee

as Your day sweeps Peace my way, and Your wind blows…Quiet, Quiet unto me.

Confusion, Perplexities, Logical Reasoning in the Imagination of the Mind

Assumations

Accusations

Aggravations… raging inside.

Shut out the voices, Shut out the voices, Shut out the voices… Tonight.

Come, unto Me… The Lord God Almighty

Oh come, unto Me… The Lord God Almighty

Be still and know that I am your God

Be still and know that I am your God

Be still and know that I am your God.

Then you will want to Dance among the Trees in Life’s Romance,

In Harmony as My wind blows over thee

And you will want to sing, the songs within your Heart unto Me,

as My day sweeps Peace your way… and My wind Blows… Quiet, Quiet unto thee.

Spell Bound

He was standing there in the back yard speaking blaspheming words to God.  His movements were quite strange to me: bending hips, shoulders back, cracking of neck, hands in the air while fingers separated, eyes fixed; yet not showing any emotion.  I stood there perplexed while watching and listening to him.  I felt a breeze move about me, my hair blew to the left of me and then my ears went silent.  I could feel the wind rush up my spine and wrap itself about me.  Warmth crept inside of me and my cheeks began to blush.  I could see his lips move, but could not hear his words.  There was no sound at all.

After realizing the weakening effect this had on me I excused myself to go inside my home.  Quickly I turned the water on over the sink, ran my hands under the water and began to splash my face.  I stood there numb for a few minutes and then asked God:  Lord Jesus what just happened?   I stood in my kitchen trying to understand why my mind was reeling; yet found myself in a giggle.

June of 2010 I had a heart attack.  Instead of going to the hospital, or lying down I got angry.  I headed toward the upstairs bedroom and while running up the stairs I stopped for a moment, laid my hand on my chest and began to pray to Jesus to help me.  I continued up the stairs to find my blood pressure device and went back downstairs to the kitchen.  My sister tried to convince me to head to the hospital, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to be saved.  I was only certain of one thing:  if God allows me to live tonight then I shall live, but if I die then I wasn’t losing anything.

A series of tests proved I was a Healthy individual at the age of 55.  Each hospital treated me with loving care, but the Doctors were not convinced that Stress played the key role in the Heart Attack.  Another series of tests proved again I was a Healthy Individual.  During these months I had decided to do myself a favor:  begin a new approach to Healthy eating, Healthy exercise, and Healthy habits.  Less 68 pounds later I have found myself to be:  less tolerant, irritated, frustrated, insecure, unmotivated, unmoved, and an emotional wreck.  My insecurity stemmed from being wounded in Heart:  degraded, humiliated, stripped of self worth, and feeling as if all doors shut, and I was pressed on every side.  I felt as if I was boxing my way out of a box.  No more listening to a multitude of Advice, telling me what I needed to do, or should not do.  Stop listening to people who only want to Teach, and not listen.  Go against those who want to protect you at all cost, because without Risks, and without Chance what is the use of living?  My Heart felt Dead and I wanted so badly to Live.   And then that voice crept up inside of me:  “For What”?  Live for What?  Not long ago you were saying:  ” if God allows me to live tonight then I shall live, but if I die then I wasn’t losing anything”.

The back and forth Battle began… Live for What?  What do I have to Live for?  Why on earth or in heaven would God want me to live if my Heart is Dying.  My heart wasn’t dying literally, but it felt Dead… dead to the Word, dead to hearing what others were saying, dead to the Preacher Man, dead to the Christian Cliches, and dead to the prayers going up.  What is your calling?  Hell if I know what my calling is!  Never been told what my calling is, so why should I say I have a calling.  What is your mission?  What is your purpose?  Why aren’t you:  getting in, getting on board, and making it to the finish?  Learn to love yourself first, then maybe you will learn to love others.  Do this, don’t do that, you may be saying this, but what you really mean is… ?

 

What I really mean is what I am saying:   when all doors close, and none are there to open for one to step forward, step out, and believe then Life becomes Dead… no vision, no dream, nothing to look forward to except to be taken out of this World and being with the Lord.  If all hopes for anything Good to come to us while on this earth is Stopped, and all of our Dreams and Desires for anything Good to come to us while on this earth have stopped… then the only Hope that could ever remain would be the Hope that in Death I would see GOOD.   For only God is Good. 

I have become a different person over the last year and a half:  Bolder, Confrontational,  and Unyielding.  As I read the writing on the  Picture of Footprints in the Sand I purchased at the Five and Dime I stop for a moment and say:

Lord, I can only Hope and Believe that at this time it is true what I am reading :



“My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”

To the Devil… that Serpent called Satan.

You have found a way to wound me, for my Heart was Wide open.

You found a way to strip me of my dignity.

You found a way to tear me down, and you sought to use me on your unfair ground

yet haven’t you known by now

I don’t belong to you?

Strike your blows with arrows, and toss all your darts

yea, makes for a bleeding Heart

Yet,

 God speaks to me saying:

Bolder I must be raised

to set my face like Flint these days,

Unyielding to the ways which would take me off the Narrow.

 

Exchanging the Natural Use for what is Against Nature

The Just Live by Faith

16 For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

For in it… this is The Gospel of Christ… The Power thereof unto Salvation.

For in it… The Gospel of Christ… The Righteousness of God is Revealed.

For in it… From Faith to Faith.   An Increasing of your Faith to which only God is able to Work.

Yes, The Just, The Believer Shall Live by Faith.


God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.

Most times in hearing this passage ministers stress the point of Homosexual sin, yet recently my mind has been challenged by another thought, to which was stimulated by this question: ‘ is it wrong for a man or woman to appease their natural Lusts/Desires through the means of Masturbation, and/or Pornographic material?’

I was always able to understand the statement: women exchanging the natural use for what is AGAINST nature, and also men leaving the natural use of the woman, BURNED in their Lust for ONE ANOTHER… men with men; yet there was something colorful in this statement… the term NATURAL.

The Natural Desire; for Women…

desire to be Married

desire to bare Children

cleaving to thy Husband

The Natural Desire; for Men…

desire to be Married

desire to have Children

desire to have a Help Meet/Wife

For women and men to Desire one another; even if they do not produce Children would be the Natural Order in Creation.   The man was made in “Our Image”.  “Let US make man in OUR Image”… the Image of God.  First Order is Man.  Because Man is in the Likeness of God; although he (man) is dust of the earth,  and God is Spirit. he (man) is only an imitation, or reflection of God.  Therefore God is Masculine.  The woman in Creation was formed by God from the Rib of Adam:  “flesh of my flesh, and bone of my bone”.  The second order is Woman; who is an Extension of Man.   Children become the Extension of both man and woman as the Natural Use of their Desire is properly used.  The desire does not end in the case of a Barren Woman, nor does it end in the case of a Non Productive Male… inability to produce children.  The Natural Order is Man, and Woman.

The Unnatural…

women exchanging the natural use for what is AGAINST nature.

Today I hear more and more young woman who aren’t married, and more Christian Women who are married speak of their Playful Sexual Experiences with their partners.  These women are  open to share; even excited about expressing their avenues of pleasure.  I am Alarmed.  I believe  there is nothing new under the sun, therefore these playful and dangerous practices should not be surprising, or shocking to us; yet these practices seem to be Quite Favorable, and have become more widely Accepted among Christian Men and Women.

Why is it both men and women do not WANT to see these Vulgar Practices as Unnatural?   I will be honest here…

The Natural Order of our mouth was created to speak and ingest, and the anal canal was made  for solid waste elimination. Neither one of these were to be used AGAINST the Natural Order in which they were created.  The Perversions of the Imagination is what leads to Sexual Immorality; also known as:  a Debased Mind.


28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.


Genesis 6:2

Genesis 6:2 (New King James Version)

2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.


These men are called ‘sons of God’.   These daughters are called ‘daughters of men’.    For some reason I could not understand the difference between the two sets of men.    One group of men are called ‘ sons’, while the other group are just called ‘men’.   They both are men right?    Yet as I say ‘sons’ of God, my mind can only relate to ONE SON… The Only Begotten Son; Jesus.

These sons are not capitalized; which makes me believe they were mere men.  Although being mere men, they now have been given an honor by being called ‘the sons of God’.    They who follow God are His children.    I wonder if these men were set apart by God unto Himself.   And if this be the case these men allowed themselves to be separated from God by going after strange fire… the daughters of men… daughters of men who were taught by their fathers; not taught of God.   Even Adam was given a wife in marriage so this would say:  God does approve of marriage; yet God chose Eve for Adam.

This particular group of men set their sights on ‘the daughters of men’ and found them to be ‘beautiful’.   Quite a temptation!

… and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.

“Whom they chose”… NOT whom God chose.    Made me think to repent when I read this.    Repent for being envious of they who go after Worldly women, who are ‘the daughters of men’, marry them, and begin to live out their dream… in a Worldly way.   Women should be on guard too,  if you are a professing child of God.   It is a great temptation for your desire to lure you into settling for a worldly man, because you believe you may never get married once you pass your youth.  The generations of men have produced both wicked daughters, and wicked sons, and upon this earth few are truly serving the Lord Jesus.   Let us see the whole part of Genesis 6

Genesis 6

The Wickedness and Judgment of Man

1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
3 And the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the LORD said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Noah Pleases God

9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.

The Ark Prepared

13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch. 15 And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17 And behold, I Myself am bringing flood-waters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, of animals after their kind, and of every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive. 21 And you shall take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to yourself; and it shall be food for you and for them.”
22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

The Distinction between the two groups of men was ‘ sons of God’, and these men once separated UNTO God now were choosing for themselves what they wanted… ‘ daughters of men'; NOT women of God.   This group had an offspring who were called ” Giants on the Earth”; ‘mighty men who were of old, men of renown’.    Were these really Giants? They certainly got attention, and must have been Very Proud.   I am not so certain these Giants were mighty with physical strength.   Today we see mere men rise to power in Political Arenas.   Also we see them greatly influencing others by becoming Athletes, or Celebrities, or even Great Religious Leaders.  And the worst  yet is to Combine the Whole Swoop;  Politics, Athletes, Celebrities, and Great Religious Leaders under a term:  “Sons of God”.

Sounds odd, and even though I haven’t watched the Film, when I hear the term ‘Giants’, I tend to think of  Tall, Mighty, and Strong, yet for some reason those words did not come to mind tonight.   The term “ELEVATED” came to mind.   Elevated, lifted up, put into High Places, Greatly Esteemed, Noted for, and Worshiped.   Very well packaged isn’t it?  And to think the Whole Package is not only offered up every Sunday, the Influence is encouraged… by those who call themselves:  ‘ the children of the King, the King’s little princess, daughters of the Prince, and of course the sons of God’.   These men became accursed. Might make you think twice to call God your daddy.

Afterward I began to think about how much Christianity today is in direct contradiction/rebellion with God’s Word.   On the one christian hand we can read the recorded statistics  which tell us how many are coming to Christ daily.  On the other christian hand we read where the field is ready for Harvest and billions will be lost if we professing christians do not act now.   What’s the hype?   Why do they both contradict?   The Holy Ghost is not in the business of turning the followers of Jesus against one another.   This means we are being lied to, and it is not the Holy Ghost.

“for the earth is filled with violence through them”… ” and behold I will destroy them with the earth”… “to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die.” God gave to every individual who has lived, and gives to those who will live the breath of life.   Since this is true I do NOT understand why we desire for God to breathe on us.   His breath is already in us.  Yet it looks like tho we live we are dead.  Adam being the first created had the breath of life put into him that he would live, yet was taken out of the garden so that he would not be given the opportunity to taste of the Tree of Life.   Knowledge must have had a thought toward the Tree of Life.

There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

… in those days, and also afterward?

Bread of Life:  Jesus

John 6

26Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

27Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

28Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

29Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

30They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?

31Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

32Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

33For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

34Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

35And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

36But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.

37All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

38For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

39And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 14

6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

The Giants of this Age will in no manner be able to give you the Bread of Life, nor will they ever be able to tend to your thirsty souls; for their messages will be liken unto a diet of Excitotoxins, and although your senses may seem to enjoy the short lived taste, the damage will be made known by it’s eternal effect.   The fruit of that which we see today, even inside the Structured Church, is because we as professing believers want to party like demons, while holding near to our heart a plastic Jesus.




God on the Mountain

When I listen to this woman (McKamey) sing I can identify with her Joy.

The Lord is so good to give His Spirit of Joy unto us.

Yes, dear one the Joy does make one Laugh, and Cry, and Laugh, and Shout, and Laugh some more.

Thank You Jesus!
