Walking this Christ centered walk comes with the Highest
Measure of accountability
The Indwelling Holy Spirit

____________________________________________________________

Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you

You must peruse God with everything you have no matter how long it takes
Look at the story of Joseph how God took him through
so many things and yet for the ultimate good
He does things in a way that will have the greatest outcome in a way that will effect
the most people for His glory
When life becomes all about him and not about self this is when you are able to find Gods peace

It does not matter how long it takes as long as your goal is to find God and to seek him
with all of your mind all of your heart and all of your soul , you will find Him

____________________________________________________________

Only a Prideful Fool will not
Change his Foolish ways
But a Man pursuing Righteousness has an
Obligation to Change

____________________________________________________________

Just because a door closes in one area of your life does not mean that it is not God's will for you
He may be giving you an opportunity to turn to him and seek him
Look at Moses when he went to Pharaoh
it seemed as if God had closed the door and yet he consulted God time and time again
And God's will was ultimately done in every scenario

____________________________________________________________

If you are not WILLING to Pursue Truth
In your walk with Christ
Then you are Wasting Your time
Because in your Pursuit of Christ
There will be Nothing but Truth
Revealed to You
How You handle that Truth
Determines your Spiritual Growth

____________________________________________________________

Being broken over Your sin is Not necessarily a bad thing
However you should be Concerned if you are
No Longer broken over Your sin
This means you have become Comfortable and Complacent with God

____________________________________________________________

Absolute Sincerity from within the Heart Mind Body and Soul is the difference between connecting with the
Creator Almighty God
Through the miracle of Faith that
Births this Awesome Experience
Known as A Relationship with
God


____________________________________________________________

I can Absolutely
Assure you Coffee has Prevented Many of Deaths
Someone will no what I mean when I say this

____________________________________________________________

Being awakened to the Fact of
Your own Sin & that there is such a thing
Is the beginning Revelation
That one will indeed be in Need OF
The SAVIOR

____________________________________________________________

Going about living in this world
under your own strength will inevitably end
with the knowledge that this is not only a burden
but an unnecessary one
Pride is standing in the way of calling out to the God
who will carry your burdens and give You
HIS STRENGTH to walk in this life Into the next

____________________________________________________________

Allow Christ to be not Only
Savior of your life but allow
His Lordship over your life
Your Life will never be the same
Again

____________________________________________________________

Love Seeks ways to fulfill
Gods Will in Your Life

____________________________________________________________

Love Yourself enough to
Overcome fear
Love can Conquer fear
Do not allow fear to Conquer Love
Living In fear is
Not
Loving Yourself
But allowing fear to have Dominion over your life
____________________________________________________________

If We would put as much thought
into Disappointing Our Perfect & Holy God
As much as we do in Disappointing people
Are Spiritual growth would Grow Exponentially

____________________________________________________________

If You are not in Divine Order
You had better figure out why & quickly
The longer it takes to do so
The longer the road will be to get back into
Divine Order


____________________________________________________________

ONLY THE HAND OF GOD
Could have me working with child molesters
in a small group in prison to help them lead a productive life after prison.

Jesus always searched out what the world views as throw aways .
Being sexually abused by 2 different males for a period of about 7 yrs as a kid
to overcoming that Through the power of God & the work of The Holy Spirit

You Know IT COULD ONLY BE GOD directing this course !!
I start the 17th Pray for me

____________________________________________________________


The Christian life is far Greater Than mere talk
people Should begin to Recognize
The Christ that is Indeed Dwelling Within You
They should see you exhibiting Christ Nature
If they can Not see this
You need to check yourself
For it Should be quite Evident
____________________________________________________________

I have the Receipt called the Bible
I The Extended Warranty called the Holy Spirit
The Debt has been Paid in Full
I am Covered by the Blood of Jesus

____________________________________________________________

Do not take back what CHRIST has taken from you
This INCLUDES your Past
____________________________________________________________

Try to speak to God about your past
& He shall Reply
I NO NOT OF WHICH YOU SPEAK
For He has dealt with it already on the Cross
So why try to deal with something that he no longer Remembers

____________________________________________________________

Next time your flesh or the enemy
wants Dominion over you
Pull out the Word of God and Renounce the LIES
The Power is There to Use if
YOU Choose
Not to Pick it up & use it
That is on
YOU
NOT God
____________________________________________________________

You know your becoming a Man when you begin
Handling YOUR Responsibilities instead of YOUR
Responsibilities
Handling you
If not your only Becoming
More & More Irresponsible
____________________________________________________________

Man has no business
Trying to determine his or hers
"Goodness"
For none is Good but The Father
So next time you say I am a good person
By who's standard yours or Gods
Maybe when you get your own
Universe maybe than you can make that determination
Until than ONLY
The Great I AM is GOOD

____________________________________________________________


Faith Demonstrates Love
Love Demonstrate Christ
Both Should be an Honest
Reflection of a Christian

____________________________________________________________

The Fruit of The Spirit
This is how people will know
IF you are who you say you are
No Fruit No Spirit
No Joke

____________________________________________________________

I fear change
& yet when fearing change
Becomes bigger than the fear of God
Nothing happens
For the Fear of God should
Enable Change to be EASY

____________________________________________________________

Out of Brokenness The Unparalleled
Beauty of Poetry & Expression is formed out of the Ashes
Power rises up to relate and connect with one anthers souls
This changes lives

____________________________________________________________

I fear change
& yet when fearing change
Becomes bigger than the fear of God
Nothing happens
For the Fear of God should
Enable Change to be EASY

____________________________________________________________

Allowing Christ to be Savior is not that difficult
Allowing Christ to be LORD of my life is not only difficult
But it Requires Submission to His will His way His rules
Abandoning my own
When I do allow His LORDSHIP
It is only than I am in DIVINE ORDER

____________________________________________________________

When Faith through Christ is Allowed to deal with our
Weakness they in turn become our Greatest Strength

____________________________________________________________

We must arm our attitudes in the Fact
The Christ suffered in the body for Our sins
Knowing this Expect that
When sins Must be put to death
That there Will Be suffering

____________________________________________________________
Educated Sophisticated people with there rational and reasoning write
books to describing a meaningless universe to find meaning in their conclusions lol

Atheist
"In the Beginning there was NOTHING an IT Blew UP"

Theist
In the Beginning God Created

-Brad Stine-
____________________________________________________________

Making a Mistake is not the issue
Everyone makes a Mistakes
The issue is in the Handling of the Mistake
Do not make Excuses if it is your fault OWN it & take steps to insure it does not happen again
If is not your fault figure out what you can do on your end to lesson the chances of the mistake happening again
____________________________________________________________

I realized while taking an extra long steaming hot shower watching all of the excess water swirl
down the drain and thought what a blessing it is to have running water let alone water to drink
Man we just do nit realize how truly blessed we really are

____________________________________________________________

For the Heart of man is Deceitfully Wicked
Therefore I want to know Your heart
The heart of Christ take me a little deeper
Take me to the depths of your heart
Search mine and remove Anything that is not like you
Remove it

____________________________________________________________


Where the Spirit of the Lord is there
You will Find Freedom
Chains are Broken Deliverance is Found and Wisdom Beyond Measure Walk IN
The Spirit of the Lord
There is Freedom

____________________________________________________________

Don't you realize man was the First to give birth?
After Eve

He said alrighty than now you take it from here

-Brad Stine-

____________________________________________________________

With out
ACCOUNTABILITY
Compromise and then Destruction is soon to follow

____________________________________________________________

A True Friend will Always speak the
Uncomfortable Truth
Although few & Far between
They rise to the occasion to
Tell you what you Need to Know
vs
what you Want to hear

____________________________________________________________

While blaming others for Your Own mistakes
you Miss the Opportunity to do the most Important things one can do in that situation & that is to
Learn & GROW otherwise your giving more power over to people expecting them to change instead of changing Self

____________________________________________________________

This Nation was Founded by Christians
first called Puritans
Not pilgrims Founded this Nation the Moral Decay we see today is Directly Linked
to the Removal of God in our schools, government, & our homes
When God was the Center piece of America like it is Suppose to be It Flourished
Look at us now
____________________________________________________________

I tried being an atheist and all that was before me was my sin
& misery life had no meaning
Now that I have given my life to Christ my sin has been taken away I have Joy & have meaning with purpose


____________________________________________________________

Seeing Christ will surely drive one to Repentance
If thou has not Repented
Than it is safe to say You have Never seen nor Know Him

____________________________________________________________

It's Truly not all about the Amount of Faith One has
It is However the Sincerity of
The Faith That makes the difference

____________________________________________________________

Those who find fault with The Cup of The Everlasting
Shall Not be excluded from Drinking
For in due time they
Will Not only be Convinced but they Will be Satisfied

If God is not the center of your ways you might want to take inventory and ask why
For his ways are definitely not our ways but Much Higher why wouldn't you want that


___________________________________________________________

Where sin Is found Rest Assured Grace Abounds more Abundantly Bigger Stronger more Powerful
But one must truly be broken over the sin For such Grace to be found

___________________________________________________________
Your Grace is ALL I
Need
Your Mercy Reigns
You O Lord
You ALONE
Sustains
ME

___________________________________________________________

The Awareness of Sin did Not just appear out of nowhere
it did Not pop out of Thin air
Sin is Not man-made
Conviction that God lays upon Every man woman's and even children's Hearts
This is were the Awareness of Sin comes From

___________________________________________________________
Science is a tiny little peak at the Brilliance of GOD

___________________________________________________________

The only reason people deny the existence of God is so that they can run around being
their own
___________________________________________________________

One if the biggest reasons some will never be able to fully reconcile themselves with God
is because they are not Willing to give up the one thing most dear to them that Christ died for
That being Their PAST

___________________________________________________________

For one to out run their troubles
is an Impossibility
for your troubles have far greater Stamina and Determination
than your own ability to put any meaningful distance between you and your troubles
No matter where you go to matter how far you go
your troubles will be there waiting for you
So stand and fight and Overcome

___________________________________________________________
I wrote this one day before that tragedy at Sandy Hook happen


I cannot believe how far away from God our schools have gone
When God was in our schools you didn't need metal detectors

___________________________________________________________
Parents it is your job to teach your children
in the way that they should go
Do not leave it up to schools
to fill their heads with all of the shenanigans
This nation was built on godly principles
Not the lies they are filling our kids heads with
Do not allow your children to think we came from apes
when is the last time anything morphed into something else else? O yea right Never

___________________________________________________________
wrote this the day of the Sandy Hook tragedy

Just woke up to this evil
the enemy is roaring around like a lion seeking whom he may devour .

When God saves a man, He is regenerating his heart, turns him into a new creature,
and the evidence is this Ö he will live like a new creature and he will confess Christ.

This is America everyone wants to bark about free speech but when it is something they do not like
or disagree with than they want you to shut up
REALLY ?
I Say Who Cares I will have my FREE SPEECH
agree or disagree this is AMERICA
I WILL TALK ABOUT MY SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST
whenever I want if someone does not like it
THEY
can go live somewhere else were There is no free speech PERIOD .


___________________________________________________________

Prayers please May God be exalted to the highest may he use me in the full capacity at which he created me
For this moment may these prisoners see in me Christ

I am going to minister to child molesters and sex offenders At the Lansing prison prayers needed earnestly please

___________________________________________________________

At Lansing correctional facility
about to preach the gospel please pray that there be no glory found For myself
but all glory be exalted to the one who sent me here
Pray That hearts be softened and minds going to receive

___________________________________________________________

I witness grown men hardened by life & its hardships in prison
Hearts Melting like butter breaking down with tears as God had used my testimony to penetrate their being

Truly humbled like never before I have never witnessed Anything so Powerful in my life
I am Amazed at Gods Grace i truly realize what serving is all about to see people as Christ sees us ALL I asked for Christ to be Lord of my life and what did that look like ?and over the last few weeks he has shown me

To Do what He would Do Go where He would Go it ended up being a place I honestly do not think i would have gone. To a max prison to witness to child molesters sex offenders addicts and more . I have to admit that was never in my plans .

But as i reflect He has been grooming me for this from the church i attend to the places he has sent me the books i have read and the people He has placed in my life .
Man today i saw the power of God take this wretch of a man that i am and use me for His Will His Purpose and it was better than anything i could have thought up or even imagined myself doing under my own will or ambition .

It was an honor and a privilege to be used in such a way. He used me to preach the Gospel to a gymnasium full of inmates and allowed me to teach a victim impact group for an hour . To see men with the taste of hope in their eyes their hearts pouring out with questions
and with Ernest ears wanting and hanging on every word not because of me but what God had been doing through me .

Un freaking believable to be used in such a way that the Spirit took over my lips and poured out in 2 and a half hours unscripted knowledge wisdom and power that could only have come from on high Wow

___________________________________________________________

I witness a young man realize for the first time that he was someone that he was somebody and as he teared up and told me "thank you my heart was touched for the first time"

and as he slapped his chest lightly in tears and said " for me man that is something"

He was standing in unbelief that it had happened that God penetrated his heart and showed him that he could be a child of God

realizing that God loved him and through me he could see that he could be changed

I am in tears thinking wow He is going to make it he has something he had never had
HOPE

___________________________________________________________

Pride of men in all their knowledge of God
Living life as if the laws of Almighty God are not written on their hearts
Is not only a disgrace but shameful

___________________________________________________________

Doing the Will of God
Far outweighs Your
own
AMBITION

___________________________________________________________

Atheist
Someone who dims their conscious
only to continue to live life as their own God
Even though it is impossible not to believe in God
For he writes His Laws on EVERY MANS heart
So it is a conscious decision to Evade his constant attempts
To Reveal himself to you
The word says only a Fool says their is no God
Don't be that Guy

___________________________________________________________

Do Not exalt the man Exalt The One who Created the man
___________________________________________________________

It is an impossibility to quit sin
And because God has no place in all of Heaven
for sinners to dwell
You might want to consider
Accepting Salvation that which was freely Given to All sinners Through Jesus Christ

___________________________________________________________

No that Unforgiveness stems from Your own Will
Exalting Your own Will above The Most High
in doing so your heart will Continue to be Hardened
Your mind full of Strife
and your Spirit will be filled with hatred
At any given time you can choose
Willfully to Forgive and Have the Peace of God
that Surpasses ALL Understanding
dealing with sin Forever
___________________________________________________________

Man is a product of influence all around him
The will that is within man is Not a Godly will
at all
In Fact it is the exact Opposite
This is the reason one Must go to God
Seeking Purposely His Good & Perfect Will
For man's will Is deceitfully wicked
Apart from God Therefore there is no such thing
as a "good person"
For None is Truly good but The Father
___________________________________________________________

When truth is revealed to your heart
and you do not submit And Obey the Truth
Revealed
what are you really doing?
You are Willfully Disobeying
the very Will of God
For God Is Truth
The Only Way the Only Life
___________________________________________________________

Recovery is something that will be ongoing for life
Salvation is a lot like Recovery
It is something that will have to be Worked out
for the rest of this life

___________________________________________________________

Loving God is an Action
Faith must have Action to Succeed
Without Love Faith will Die
Do not Allow your Love for God
to Grow cold but Renew your Love for Him Daily
He renews his Love & Faith in All of us Daily
Praise God
___________________________________________________________
There is a tree that is producing fruit
that grew out of the most terrible conditions
This tree has miracle grow
Called the Holy Spirit
This tree is me

___________________________________________________________

Trying to Earn mans favor
instead of Drawing Nearer to God is Foolish
If God is Pleased with You
EVERYTHING else Will fall into place
___________________________________________________________

Fearing man only brings upon yourself
unnecessary anguish
For Trusting In The Lord
Not only outweighs
Any fear known to man
There is Certain Victory
In doing so

___________________________________________________________

Christ has Forgiven Your MASSIVE Debt
Paid in Full
So why do you despise your fellow brethren
over puny & petty things?
Shall you Not Forgive Anyone
Who offends
For many offenses towards God are Forgiven & Renewed
On a Daily Basis

___________________________________________________________
The reason so many people
never come to know the riches of His Glory
Is because they have to much
Faith in their Doubt

___________________________________________________________
Surely if a man were to seek God
He would show him the Foolishness
that is Bound in his heart
and Surely untangle the Prideful mess
but as it stands the fool stands bound
by his own willful disobedience to the the laws
God himself has place upon his very being
___________________________________________________________

Do not be who you are
Be who God created you to be

___________________________________________________________

Step- Father

Step Father
Steps up to the plate in place of the Absentee father
Step Father steps in the shoes of the one unwilling to walk in the shoes of FATHER
Step Father
Steps into the role every child deserves to have
Step Father
Steps his way into the lives of Gods precious gifts
Step Father
Steps in for Birthdays Holidays Every day
Step Father
Steps through life's trials ups & downs to comfort hurting little souls
The role should be reversed
I am the Father
You stepped out
I Stepped in
You are Step- father
I am the Father

Step- Father

___________________________________________________________

Sobriety is something you must Never
take for granite
Because the day I do
Is The day I will no longer
Be Sober
___________________________________________________________

He IS who He says He IS
He will do what He says He will do
If you doubt try Him
He is Not Fickle like us
Those who have never tasted
the riches if his glory could not possibly understand
Don't knock it till you have tested God's word
___________________________________________________________

When asked
The Holy Spirit will Reveal Truth
It's what you do with the revelation of that Truth
That will determine The rate of your growth
___________________________________________________________

To be captivated by God's love
is truly something to behold
To see his wonderful creation
From the sunset to the trees
Look at all that he has made
look at all he has done
what a wonderful God we serve
___________________________________________________________

Children do not need Excuses
For their Rebellion
They need Biblicly Sound
Parents that Will Not Spare The Rod
Time Out ? Please ...
___________________________________________________________

Instead of Retreating from your Own Denial
Stand and Face the Source
of Your problem take Responsibility
become Accountable
Then OVERCOME

___________________________________________________________
The quote came from Dr Lockridge
this is a truly Awesome quote
if you can halfway wrap your mind around this
than you will understand that we are nothing without the creator
God is limitless You may not say He is like
Because He is not like Anything
He simply IS



"The reason God came from nowhere,
was there was nowhere for Him to come from.
And coming from nowhere, He stood on nothing
for there was nowhere for Him to stand.
And standing on nothing, He reached out where there was nowhere to reach and caught something
where there was nothing to catch,
and hung something on nothing,
and told it to stay there.
ĒThere is Nothing in Which to
compare
God Is The Great I Am"


___________________________________________________________

The will of God is so much better
than Anything we could come up with
It is not that people do not believe
God exists It is just they have never allowed
Him access to their life
They believe in being their own God
& God will let you
But know this you may choose to humble yourself & Acknowledge The one who spoke us all into existence
Giving up your own will & Allowing Gods good & Perfect Will to make your path strait
___________________________________________________________

My King is the key to knowledge: The wellspring of wisdom; the doorway of deliverance; the pathway of peace; the roadway of righteousness; the highway of holiness, and the gateway of glory!

His office is manifold: His promise is sure. His light is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His reign is Righteous. His yoke is easy, and His burden is light.

I wish I could describe Him for you, but Heís indescribable! Heís Incomprehensible! Heís invincible! Heís Irresistible!

You canít get Him out of your mind or off your hands! You canít out-live Him and you canít live without Him! The Pharisees couldnít stand Him, but they found out they couldnít stop Him. Pilate couldnít find any fault in Him. The witnesses couldnít agree. Herod couldnít kill Him. Death couldnít handle Him, and the grave couldnít hold Him!

Thatís my King, Thatís my King, Thatís my King, and Heís the kingdom and the power and the glory Ė Forever! AMEN!!! I wonderÖdo you know Him?
Ė Rev. SM Lockridge-

Wallowing in self pity
enables one to loose sight of your achievements
as if you have not achieved anything
The depths of self pity have no end
Knowing this Snap out of it & be present

___________________________________________________________

Blessed our we
For have awoken to see another day
Blessed are we for little things as well as the bigger things we take for granite each day
Thank you Lord for Today

___________________________________________________________

Sometimes its not a status update people
Its called
SPAM


___________________________________________________________
Stop feeding your fears & feed your Faith
Starve your doubts
Live your purpose In Christ
Do not listen to the world
But listen to The Word of God
Know Who you are
In Christ Jesus &
Know Who's you are
Now walk In The newness
Of Christ

___________________________________________________________

Being a Christian is a full time duty
not part time
You do not want a part time God
Therefore stop calling on God
only when it is convenient for you
Be about The Fathers business
Not your own
LIVE

___________________________________________________________
I do not understand how marriages are failing
& yet there are only about 20 people in marriage enrichment at church
Then wonder why things are not working .

___________________________________________________________

Everyone Talks about Change in the new year
but still want to live the Old lifestyle
Everyone wants change but Not WILLING
to put in the WORK
Stop talking about Change
Do The Work & Live it out
___________________________________________________________
God will not be mocked
Men who mock God will
See the harvest they have sown
Pay attention when the harvest
comes
You will notice things no longer
Swinging in your favor
but chaos and dysfunction all around you
Reaping what you have sown
___________________________________________________________

We all have choices
You can wallow in your own guilt and shame of the past
You can wallow in your self pity
or you can
CHANGE

God is the real hero of the Bible. Why do so many Bible characters have serious flaws? The answer is simple. Thatís all God has to work with. All the perfect people are in heaven. The only ones on earth are the folks with serious weaknesses. The talent pool has always been pretty thin when it comes to moral perfection. God works with sinners because thatís all he has to work with. In heaven we will all be vastly improvedĖperfected by Godís grace. But until then, he uses some pretty ornery and shallow people who fall short in many ways, and he does some amazing things through them.

I see beauty in the room
I see a flower ready to blossom
I See beauty in the room
I can see the beauty within you
I see beauty in the room
I see beauty through the brokenness
through the trials of this life
I see beauty in the room I see this is true
I see beauty in the room
Do you see it to
I see beauty in the room
I see beauty
It is YOU

___________________________________________________________

I finally understand why light has to Burn
So it can withstand the darkness
All around it
It is hard to be a light in a dark place
Now i also get a sense of what
Our Savior went through
Go be a light in this dark would
Otherwise how will they see

___________________________________________________________

This world in its fallen state
Only wants compromise & justification so they may live in their own darkness
Trading Truth for lies Enabling them to rot in their sin of "Freedom"
but really this Freedom they have Exchanged for Truth
Has Imprisoned them
All so they can justify their Sinful lifestyles & Disobedience
True Freedom is found Through Christ
The freedom through Christ Breaks the shackles of the Worlds systems and views of Immorality as Morality & replaces it with
Truth

___________________________________________________________

You may longer use the Excuse
I don't know
Because it is a choice to stay
Ignorant
If you do not know
Than find out How

___________________________________________________________

Lay yourself down so that God may pick you up
Then you shall be upright
Give your self over to God and give him full control
Then your joy will be made complete

___________________________________________________________

You can't grow in a relationship if you don't grow up as an individual!

___________________________________________________________

There can only be one Leader in the home
2 people can not Lead going the same direction
It Only takes one to Lead
If you are both trying to take on the same Role
one is Not Necessary
The other needs to Follow
The Leader as long as the Leader is Leading to Christ

___________________________________________________________

When God takes you through the trials & fires of this life
It is only to refine you & purify you bringing you closer
To the conformity to his son

___________________________________________________________

My faith is in you God
Knowing this it is impossible to fail

___________________________________________________________

My To Do List IS
GOD

___________________________________________________________

How will one bless unless there is love involved
There must be a love for one another
and yet one must properly love him or her self
In order to truly bless
Love expects nothing back it is pure in its true form
Learn to Love so others may be blessed

___________________________________________________________

Are you worth your salt
Have you retained your freshness?
For you are to be the salt of the earth
The flavor the light for others to see
If you have lost your saltiness
You are not fit for service of God

___________________________________________________________


God does not see an inmate
He sees His Child in need of Him
He sees potential were the world sees a throw away
God sees a testimony to be used to Glorify Him
While man sees a monster
Thank God for His Mercy His Grace
& most of all
His Forgiveness

___________________________________________________________

Do not take a mole hill and allow it to transition into a MOUNTAIN
Learn and grow
and allow yourself to be better for it

___________________________________________________________

ďFollow me.Ē This is the command
So I ask who are you following?
Get as far away from self as possible
In All your ways Acknowledge that Him
& He shall Direct your path

___________________________________________________________

The Lord has raised these dry bones
He has breathed New Life into these bones
marrow and blood
HE has done it for me he will most Certainly do it for you
Have FAITH

___________________________________________________________

It is not so so much the kingdom of heaven is something to be grasped
but it is the secret things of God that he reveals
It is the deep thing he reveals
to those who have faith enough to receive it

___________________________________________________________

When the Lord draws near to thine own heart
The soul recognize his unmistakable presence
For who are thee to deserve such attention from
He that has told the stars where to sit
O that God would be mindful of me is truly something
To behold

___________________________________________________________

For those who have embraced chaos
their whole life
The Realm in which you have lived in
This dimension of dysfunction
That you are comfortable in and thriving in
Know that there is a peace that surpasses all understanding through Christ Jesus

___________________________________________________________

When you have accepted things for what they are
you will live it out
The only catch with this is
that works both ways
good and bad

___________________________________________________________

It is perfectly fine to express ones self
But one must do it through the avenues
in which Christ has given unto thee
Express yourself Through
Christ & watch & be Amazed
At the Difference

___________________________________________________________

Those of us who are In the body of Christ
are Called
To Engage in Spiritual Warfare
If you are Not putting on the Full Armor of God
Daily
How can you expect to win the
Many battles we face
You who are Spiritual need to recognize
you are not merely dealing with people
you are dealing with spirits within the people

___________________________________________________________

You will never out run your problems
Stand and Fight rage war against your problems
and OVERCOME them
Or they will CONTINUE to overcome you
Otherwise shut up

___________________________________________________________

Apart from Christ we are nothing
the air we breathe
The breath of life all comes from above
We live because he allows us to live
we are here to serve one another not our own agendas

___________________________________________________________

Men & Woman of God
Who are Truly born again
Need not be whipped and prodded
In order to seek God to Love God to want to know God more intimately because
Your New Nature Yearns for this

___________________________________________________________

With so many deceitful advertisements all around us
Ask yourself
Are you one of them
Are you representing Christ or the world

___________________________________________________________

In the Valley is where you will grow the most
because you will find yourself looking towards the Heavens

___________________________________________________________

Representing Christ under your own power
Will do reprehensible harm
All it takes is one misrepresentation of Christ to
Damage and influence many
Represent Christ through the Spirit
And you will not have to worry about this

___________________________________________________________

Please be aware that many are watching your walk with Christ
You are an Ambassador of the Most High King
The world is looking for opportunity to dismiss Christ
Do Not give any reason for such accusations

___________________________________________________________

Conformity to this world
Is so dam easy
Conformity to the image of
CHRIST now this
is Not so Easy
___________________________________________________________

There are many who know not of the Extravagant Gift
of
The Holy Spirit
They can not understand or Comprehend it
Because they do not have it

GOD takes lost baggage and claims it as his own
He gives life where death is found
He gives when he should take
He loves when he should reject
God can take what was broken & pieces it back together
He offers good in return for bad
But most of all he Loves he just simply Loves

-SM LOCKRIDGE -

ďHeís enduringly strong, Heís entirely sincere, Heís eternally steadfast. Heís immortally graceful. Heís imperially powerful. Heís impartially merciful. Heís Godís Son. Heís a sinnerís savior. Heís the centerpiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. Heís unparalleled. Heís unprecedented. Heís supreme. Heís preeminent. Heís the loftiest idea in literature. Heís the highest idea in philosophy. Heís the fundamental truth in theology. Heís the miracle of the age. Heís the only one able to supply all of our needs simultaneously. He supplies strength for the weak. Heís available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He saves. He guards and He guides. He heals the sick, He cleans the lepers. He forgives sinners, He discharges debtors, He delivers captives, He defends the feeble, He blesses the young, He serves the unfortunate, He regards the aged, He rewards the diligent, He beautifies the meek. Do you know Him?

Well, my king is the king of knowledge, Heís the well-spring of wisdom, Heís the doorway of deliverance, Heís the pathway of peace, Heís the roadway of righteousness, Heís the highway of holiness Heís the gateway of glory, Heís the master of the mighty, Heís the captain of the conquerors, Heís the head of the heroes, Heís the leader of the legislators, Heís the overseer of the overcomers, Heís the governor of governors, Heís the prince of princes, Heís the king of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

His life is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Well. I wish I could describe Him to you. But Heís indescribable. Yes. Heís incomprehensible. Heís invincible, Heís irresistible. Iím trying to tell you, the Heavens cannot contain Him, let alone a man explain Him. You canít get Him out of your mind. You canít get Him off of your hands. You canít outlive Him, and you canít live without Him. Well. The Pharisees couldnít stand Him, but they found out they couldnít stop Him. Pilate couldnít find any fault in Him. Herod couldnít kill Him. Death couldnít handle Him and the grave couldnít hold Him. Thatís my king!

He always has been, and He always will be. Iím talking about He [who] had no predecessor and He [who] has no successor. There was nobody before Him and there will be nobody after Him. You canít impeach Him, and Heís not going to resign. We try to get prestige and honor and glory to ourselves, but the glory is all His. Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever, and ever, and ever, and ever. How long is that? And ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and when you get through with all of the forevers, then 'Amen'."

ďOh I wish I could describe him to you.Ē


___________________________________________________________

Continue having integrity in the face of adversity
Keep your character intact
Even when someone intends to do you wrong
Continue on the righteous path
And let God exact his righteous
And perfected judgement

___________________________________________________________

One can not live apart from God
In Fact one must live Through God
Allowing Christ Into your life is Giving him Consent
To Abide in you to Live IN you
But most importantly Through you

___________________________________________________________

You want nothing to do with God
Because you are to busy running around being your own God
So when I try to tell you about The one true God
Your like woe woe woe
I am perfectly fine being my own God

___________________________________________________________

Jesus in his infinite wisdom does not do unnecessary things in your life On the contrary
in his infinite wisdom he will put you in situations and circumstances
to cause you to grow in ways you would've never imagined
___________________________________________________________

When you are of the world you just have problems
When you are saved and have the blessings of God
You do not just have problems because the problems you do have are
Good problems to have because their ultimately going to teach you
and allow you to Grow through your problems


___________________________________________________________

Christ died so You could live
So why are you Choosing to live
Beneath your means ?
Let Christ work Through you
Allow him to make you usable
SUBMIT

___________________________________________________________

When you Allow
The Holy Spirit to LEAD & GUIDE you
You quickly realize how little we do know
How Infinite is the Wisdom from the One on High
The same Spirit that Raised Christ from death
IS WITHIN us
Do Not Ignore It or Wasted its PRECIOUS
LORDSHIP & LEADERSHIP
For this is FOOLISHNESS
___________________________________________________________

Most people put Themselves
In Situations & Circumstances that are wrong
Than want to shake their fist At the God
After they Chose to Ignore ALL the warning Signs
of The Spirit that he gave All of us
They want a life without Any accountability for Themselves
When you do this you set yourself above The Most High

I tell you This is Absurd

___________________________________________________________
You are being blessed for having a God that will allow you to Grow Through these difficult times

in the only way that would allow you to grow in such a way to ultimately be Conformed to the image of Christ .

The Blessing comes from the Lesson but Only
If you get the lesson that is
If not you will keep going round & round until you do
Submit and get the lesson than and only than shall you be not only blessed but a blessing to others

___________________________________________________________

What do We know of the Most Holy God
that spoke us into existence
This God that stretched forth And grab something where there was nothing and hung it on nothing and told it to stay there
The God we have all Made too small and you are trying to tell me he can't help you with your problem

___________________________________________________________
I am not saying all Catholics are bad or saying they are not saved
Just trying to open the eyes of the blind
Catholics pray to marry show me this in the bible Catholics ask mere man
"the pope "
to be redeemed or absolved of sin , show me this in the bible
They call mere man the holy father and even kneel before him this is Blaspheme I tell you
I believe the Catholic church is the great Whore revelations talks about
stop going to mass and listening to this ritualistic baloney spewed forth and stop listening to all the false doctrines
Read your bible for Yourself let the Holy Spirit Interpret the word of God Not the FALSE church of Catholicism

___________________________________________________________

Ask yourself this
There was a time when you knew that God was with you and walked with you
You sought him you searched and prayed to him fervently
Now that that all hell has broken loose in your life
You have the audacity to ask were is God
All the while He continues to ask WHERE ARE YOU

___________________________________________________________

The Pope is stepping down GOOD he is worthless in ALL the coverups of Childhood sexual abuse
that he ALLOWED before and after he took the position
BY BY
I wish the Catholic PERCH would wake up and become a real Church imagine what they could do if they were not an organization or government dictatorship
The possibilities would be endless !!
But no they have to be a pedophilia hiding evil scheming self protecting making up rules as they go alone organization A WOLF in SHEEP'S clothing
The biggest Scheme the Enemy has cooked up thus fare and drones of people are following this SATANIC DEMONSTRATIVE Roman EMPIRE

___________________________________________________________

The victim mentality will have you swimming in self pity with no
end in sight no land of reality to swim to just endless swimming in the realm of self pity

___________________________________________________________

In the midst of extreme pain and anguish
that someone has caused you there is an overwhelming chance to show the Sacrifice of self
and show the love of Christ
The grace that he shares & extends to each of us daily
There is an opportunity to share Christ the Christ that dwells within
wants to be shown and be expressed through action

___________________________________________________________

Some only come with intent in disguise
to want to know your problems
Only to get the information
Once Received
than its off to the Gossip circle
Be mindful of this some things are better off not spoken

___________________________________________________________

I am to be an example of The Heavenly Father
here on earth God has Entrusted me with the honor of representing this
Very Special duty as an earthy Father
Knowing this I am to extend Grace as he would extend his grace
To the children he has given me I am to forgive the painful offenses my children may inflict
I GET IT

___________________________________________________________

Through Pain the understanding of Gods wonderful touch
may be realized
When Allowed
if
Not than there is just pain

___________________________________________________________

Grace keeps me from hitting the floor
Grace allows me to see others from God's prospective
Grace captures my heart and takes it prisoner in order to see clearly
If not there is only self
I want to be as fare away from self as possible
Extend Grace live it out
Be Grace Amazing

___________________________________________________________

There are so many people trying to discredit Christ
instead of looking for ways to just simply Believe
Their agenda is to discredit Christ in order to
live their life for themselves
___________________________________________________________

Everyone has this thing called a Conscious
and people try to justify themselves when they break the laws God has placed upon each of us
The problem is that justification can Not come from yourself
Justification Only comes From Christ

___________________________________________________________

You will have to change your view of God
in order to fulfill the lust of your flesh
Your view will turn to compromise
your theology of Everything you no to be true about God will change in order to Justify your actions
The problem is that God is Not going to compromise or change Recognize you have

___________________________________________________________

Those of us who are saved by the grace of God are holy all you have to do is accept that fact Now live it out

___________________________________________________________

The more you fall in Love with
Christ
Determines your level of Obedience
___________________________________________________________

Do Not give someone else the power to hinder your Spiritual
GROWTH why would you Allow someone to occupy that much space in your life

___________________________________________________________

You Must Hear
You Must Do & Apply
The spoken Word that is taught
Through the man or woman of God
whom God has used to speak to you in order to give you the Wisdom & Knowledge you need to Grow
If you do not apply this
You will get what you always have gotten
NOTHING

___________________________________________________________

The enemy is constantly reminding you
where you have been & where you've come from
The problem with this is
He Conveniently leaves out
just how fare you have come
And what you have Overcome


___________________________________________________________

I am Property of The Lord Jesus Christ Adopted Into The Royal Family
This makes me Special this makes me Royalty
What you didn't no?

Walking on the path of Truth is a very hard road to travel
The way of falsehood and denial is a road traveled all to easy
Many choose this path
At the end of the day the path of Truth will lead to Freedom
The road of falsehood and denial is a road to nowhere
___________________________________________________________

Until you come into the Knowledge that
HE IS
HE just simply IS
And your NOT
Your faith will never get to be where it needs to be

___________________________________________________________

Why run from the will of God
For surely there is no comfort to be found in running
In fact much heartache and mischief will in ensue
Apart from Christ you will surely & inevitably end up chained to sin
Stay in the will of God and avoid this altogether

___________________________________________________________

The reason it is a huge offense to God to blaspheme
The Holy Spirit
Is because it is the very Truth
people have to purposely ignore
In order to do it
The Holy Spirit is God speaking to you through
The Spirit

___________________________________________________________

Frauds are meant to be
Exposed
Much like a fraudulent Christian
The Fruit will indeed be missing
Exposing the lie

___________________________________________________________

A mega Company with over 1 Billion shareholders is seeking a new CEO.
The name of the company? VATICAN.

___________________________________________________________

Through suffering one can find discipline and ultimately change
If you allow Growth to take place
Do not suffer in vein

___________________________________________________________

One Must be Desperate
For God in & out of Season
Do not only be Desperate
For God when things are not going your way
He IS Worthy to be yearned & long for even when things are going horrible wrong

___________________________________________________________

A selfish life is no life at all
However Living a selfless life
Is life in abundance

___________________________________________________________

The stronger your relationship with God the easier it will be to leave your sin behind
The closer you get to God
The further away from you're Sin you will be

___________________________________________________________

I believe one of the biggest reasons we need faith is because
There is always something to be worked on
you never feel as if you Have arrived
because with faith you are always looking for something you cannot tangibly see
Yet understand there is always somewhere to be going

___________________________________________________________

There is so much pain in hanging on to the past
Let it go talk about it bring the past into discussion
Bring it out because it has kept you in a dungeon fare to long
Shine a light on it so it can be consumed by the light
It is so freeing

___________________________________________________________

Stop trying to make sense of God
He is unfathomable to our minds
Our minds could never give Him his Just Due
Lean NOT to your own Understanding but in ALL your ways
Acknowledge Him and HE shall direct your path
If you always need to make sense of God you will
Never reach your Full potential IN CHRIST
___________________________________________________________

Allow your weakness
To Draw you Closer to
God not Further Away
Your weakness is by design
It is to bring you to your knees
So you may draw near to Him
Your weakness will ultimately become your Strength

___________________________________________________________

Loosen your grip on things that are fleeting
Than release them altogether
For these are things that will parish
Strengthen your grip on things eternal
Things of the everlasting

___________________________________________________________

The things of this world have your attention because
you give your attention over to them
Priorities are what You make them
Christ will not command your attention
Just realize he is patiently waiting for it


___________________________________________________________

We live in Gods world that is Reality
We do not live in the imaginary world that Darwin created
Where nothing exploded & created everything with no purpose or meaning
In fact we live in a God created reality with purpose & meaning

___________________________________________________________

Live life excepting God and the things of God not rejecting God and the things of God

___________________________________________________________

A lot of people are Ever hearing but never learning
Pursuing self
Not pursuing Holiness
In order to please our Heavenly Father you Must pursue Holiness
otherwise what's the point

___________________________________________________________

If you are living the exact same life & lifestyle you were before you claimed to have been born again
than stop claiming that you are
because it is an Impossibility to be born again & not change
Will it happen all at once?
Of course not
but if you are born again you will change and you will bear fruit
if you do not than you are lying to yourself & dishonoring
God

___________________________________________________________

Do you merely seek out
God because of his promises
Or do you seek out God because of his Presence
When you begin to seek out God
For his Presence the Promises
Will manifest through his Presence not the other way around

___________________________________________________________

Just because something is wrong for you does not make it Universally Wrong for everyone else
because God is going to speak to Your spirit right where YOU are
Not where everyone else should be


___________________________________________________________

The mind wants to dismiss God
But mans heart knows His Existence
His soul speaks to the mind to confirm
Denial is futile Gods Reign is Eminent
The struggle continues for mans quest to be his own god

___________________________________________________________

Do not allow a bunch of "Religious" people to send you on a detour
Religious people start wars and proclaim a Different Gospel of Christ
If they were to become Spiritual & Filled with The Spirit
They would live & walk in truth
Love they Neighbor as Yourself

do not let the little stupid things
that we let get in our way
instead of forgiving and realizing
we ALL make mistakes and we all fall down
We just need to realize this is borrowed time
and that life truly is a gift and it is a wonderful thing
___________________________________________________________

God has brought me out of Egypt
When I stopped making Excuses
When I stopped believing what I couldn't do
& what God has not done
I am no longer wondering in the Desert
because I no longer doubt God
He IS
He just Simply IS
I know without a doubt
He has brought me out of Egypt

___________________________________________________________
God is going to Conform You to the image of Christ
by Any means necessary
The reason it becomes so hard is because we tend to fight it every step of the way

___________________________________________________________

Finding strength In The Lord
Is a lot easier than finding strength in self
Self is limited where Gods strength
Is Unlimited

___________________________________________________________

How many are Unreconciled or found not to be compatible with God?
Basically an enemy of the Creator of All that you see
This IS the purpose for Christ
To Reconcile you & allow you to be compatible with God
Forgiving your sins So that you may be In right standing with a Perfect and Holy Creator

___________________________________________________________

If you do not understand God
it is because you are in your natural state
only a spiritual person can understand the things of God
For it is foolish to the carnal naturally minded man
But to those who are spiritual
God only reveals the things of God to them
___________________________________________________________

I am no longer blind for now I See
But I tell you
It is Not with my eyes that I see
For it is far greater than that
To be able to recognize my True condition

___________________________________________________________

As long as there is TODAY
The Lord wants you to give it to Him
that gave it to you
Today does Not belong to you
TODAY is a gift & it is not Promised

___________________________________________________________

There is Power In but ONE name
& lets be perfectly Honest
It is not our own name
But the name of Jesus
This is where our help comes from
In the name of Jesus
Our Strength comes from this One Name
For we are very limited in our own strength
Through Christ Jesus Strength is LIMITLESS
___________________________________________________________

God searches the in most being
The Heart
If Anyone knew what dwelt there
you would not dare be able to look them in the eye
Without revolt
& yet people still walk around full of their own Pride
Thinking they need not The Saviour Christ Jesus
The Only ONE who came to cleanse the wretchedness
& sin from the hearts of men & woman
What audacity

___________________________________________________________
God's word still sustains even after 2,000+yrs
The measure of His Love abounds still to this very day
He died so that we could live
If you are one who does not live to Glorify God
Than you must be glorifying self & that Always ends in Misery
___________________________________________________________

The Lord has called you for His Purpose
If you are attempting to live life according to your own
Purpose you will inevitably be unfulfilled

___________________________________________________________

Time will not wait for you
Time will continue to pass you by
Time is merciless
A love one can die on Friday & time will continue on With no mercy
Life continues and Monday is still coming
Time will not wait for mourning to be completed
Time just expects you to be strong As it continually passes by
Gobbling up every second minute and hour of everyday
Regardless of the situations and circumstances we must keep moving
We must keep going and growing
Know that Time is going to keep moving with or without us
If you are preparing and have been working tirelessly on your life
When life does come at you , you may handle it
Instead of it handling you
Something you Need to know & Understand is
That there no Time to waste Time is Precious
___________________________________________________________

The denial of God
does not do anything but strengthen Gods case
for Righteousness
For mans Pride
tries to Exalt himself above God
in doing so Acknowledges God

___________________________________________________________

An atheist can deny God
But they will never be able to deny the flat out rebellion going on in their hearts
They will never be able to deny the sin in their life
They must continue to prove to themselves they are their own God
& with this there shall never be peace in their spirit
___________________________________________________________

You can not help everyone
Only Christ can do for them what He did for you
You have to discern when other peoples weakness is stronger than your strength

___________________________________________________________

Just because God delivers you from something
does Not mean the war is over
We still have our fallen nature
The moment you believe this you will fall
The enemy wants you to believe you are no longer a target Delivered yes safe No

___________________________________________________________

When God has not opened the eyes of "the blind"
They will continue to think The spiritual things of God are foolish
Do not be mad at them because God has not chosen to open there eyes
Instead Love them until He does

___________________________________________________________

When you say that there is no God
Deep down in your core
You know this Not to be true
Ask yourself HONESTLY
Why is that

___________________________________________________________

Why do we find ourselves in a race against people
& they are not even aware of it ?
Be content with what The Lord has provided you with
Steward it well & more shall be given
If not it shall be taken away

___________________________________________________________

There is a certain responsibility on our part
to scatter the seeds the Lord gives us
On fertile ground
we should not scanner aimlessly

___________________________________________________________

Why do so called Christians live their life
as if hell is not real?
Living life the same as they did before
their so called conversion
How can you be converted without converting?

___________________________________________________________

One must come into the Truth
that God is infinite in His wisdom
He is Good
even when we can not understand His Will
& most of all
when we do not feel His infinite wisdom
just know His Will IS best
___________________________________________________________

I believe we live in such a time in which people
are following the God they have created in their minds
This God of compromise
is NOT
The God of The Bible

___________________________________________________________

Do not make a mockery of the Gospel or of Christ
Living your life the way you desire
Living a life for Christ is indeed hard
You can forget about this "your best life now"
prosperity Crap
For to live a life for Christ
Will be the hardest thing you ever do

___________________________________________________________


It is an Impossibility for those who have tasted in in the Heavenly Gift
Of The knowledge of God
To dismiss his Calling
To dismiss his Enlightened way
One may try but HE has already imprinted His Law on your Heart
Denial is Futile

___________________________________________________________



When you set yourself up against The Most High God
In all of your pride and arrogance
Understand there will be consistences
You might get by but you will not get away
___________________________________________________________





A prideful heart only boast
its own stupidity
A humble heart boast in its weakness
To give God glory

___________________________________________________________

Christ has set me free from
Alcohol abuse, Drug abuse, Sexual abuse From two different males
From the age of 7 until Almost 13, Pornography & Attempted suicide,
But most of all he freed me from myself
He did it for me and he'll do it for you !!!
Just invite him in and be willing to do the work and you will be free indeed
___________________________________________________________

If we do not Boast In our Weakness
How will God get the glory He so Justly Deserves

___________________________________________________________

Keeping it Real
Is so much better than
Keeping it Fake

___________________________________________________________

IF YOU ONLY KNEW
WHAT DEMONS WERE DOING TO YOU EVERYDAY
AND TO YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY
YOU WOULD PRAY LONGER AND CLING TO GOD FOR DEAR LIFE!!!!!

-Ilaitia Ralovo-

___________________________________________________________

We Live in the most insane Society
of all Ages where everyone believes in everything
No one Fears GOD anymore or Reveres HIM
if you only knew that your whole life is but a moment or only a few seconds
in the Span
of Eternity dividing into HELL and HEAVEN
YOU WOULD CHANGE EVERYTHING YOU DO TODAY!!!!



-Ilaitia Ralovo-
___________________________________________________________

People have erased The God of the Bible
and molded him into their lives and lifestyles
Instead of allowing God to mold them into His Will & Way

___________________________________________________________

Christianity is Far more than saying a prayer
because God will test your sincerity
The proof is when you continue in seeking and asking
& be willing to go where he leads you
He is going to Lead you Away from your Old Life
If not
Than you are apart of the counterfeit Christian society
who continues in there old nature with No Change

___________________________________________________________

The reality of Christ
Is that he not only expects change
He Commands Change
Because of the Power and Authority of The Holy Spirit
Given to Each Who Truly Are His Disciples
He Will change You And conform you to The Image of Christ


___________________________________________________________

If you are self-reliant
God cannot Use you
Peter was self-reliant and he fell God had to break his dependence upon self
His power came when he was
Totally and utterly Dependent on God

___________________________________________________________

Father Thank you for Today
for his is truly the day that You have made
Thank you Father for you loving kindness
& willingness to mold your people into the image of Christ
Thank you for allowing us to live in your will & way
I pray that above ALL things that you would have your way In us Through us for You
may Your Will be done on earth through your servants
To Advance Your Kingdom In Jesus Might
Name AMEN


___________________________________________________________

In the times of testing choose Christ
In the fiercest of the battles choose Christ
Through the fire and the flames choose Christ
And the impurities will be burned out
And in the end you Will be refined

___________________________________________________________

Have no empty Hallelujahs to The King
One must Praise Him when things Are not going according to your plan
For He is still a Great and Mighty King

___________________________________________________________

If your day is not going according to your plan
Maybe God is reminding you
It's not your plan you should be following

___________________________________________________________

Truth IS the only way to make it
In this Christian walk
Truth IS the only way
For Jesus IS truth
And HE IS the way
The only way

___________________________________________________________

Thinking about living right
And continuing to live wrong
Is nothing more than
self-deception
Thinking Without Action equals Nothing

___________________________________________________________

If you Truly Want your life to Change
Stop trying to Justify and Compromise
The Convictions of The Holy Spirit & Submit &
Obey
Only then will your Change Come

___________________________________________________________

You have the Power & Authority
To Cast out negative thoughts
Do Not allow the enemy to have Dominion over your mind

___________________________________________________________
After all is done
God Repairs the broken life that comes to Him
He Repairs & Restores
He is Very Near to the broken hearted the bruised & the wounded


___________________________________________________________

If your Heart is Filled with
Anger, Unforgiveness,&
Bitterness there is not enough room for
Love to Dwell there is no room for Christ
___________________________________________________________

The world has turned
Wrong into right
& has caused great grief upon this earth
As Morality has been Exchanged for Justification
We Need Christ More than ever

___________________________________________________________

How many are imprisoned
Incarcerated in your own mind
By your Past ? Christ has the Key to your Deliverance He Alone can Free You
___________________________________________________________

Become Fully Convinced
That God Will Do Exactly what HE says HE Will Do
Allow your Faith to Grow as such
Feed your Faith in order to Starve your Doubts
And your Faith will Grow as it Should

___________________________________________________________

We are free from the law only if we Continue
To Die Daily & pick up our Cross and follow Christ
In doing so we will automatically follow the law
Through Abiding IN The Spirit
For Christ came to fulfill the law not abolish it

___________________________________________________________

In love I submit this plea not Judgement . For those who claim to be A Christian posting All of these vulgar obscene & sensual post on facebook F this Suck that . How does this Represent Christ? We are Representing The Most High God ,be in the world not of the world .How are we suppose to "Be Set Apart"if we look like the the world & do as the world does? Why would Anyone want Christ if there is No difference in our walk than theirs? Not that I am without sin or have it altogether but we are to be working towards holiness . So i submit to you this How does this Represent our God? Peace and Blessings Pray about it

___________________________________________________________

Drawing nearer to God
Will In Fact Enable
Your Faith to Increase
When Faith Increases
Only than will your
Level of Obedience
Increase
___________________________________________________________

Do Not take Life's Presence
For Granted
The Gift of life can be taken
In a Blink of an eye
Love Today do Not put it off
Until Tomorrow
For Tomorrows Presence
May Cease to Exist

___________________________________________________________

Learn to Control your thoughts
Do Not Allow your thoughts to Dictate & Control you
You have a choice to cast them out
or Allow them to take you on a
Self Destructive journey
Realize that It is a Choice
Live by The Spirit Not of the flesh

___________________________________________________________

Gods Grace Will only Penetrate through the the phony FaÁade if you are Submissive
and Allow Him In
He Will Only come in if you Invite Him In
other wise you will Always Be
Unsatisfied with who you Really Aren't
___________________________________________________________

Do Not go around Portraying a Christian
In order to be a Christian you Must be Authentic
If you are a Fraud Your Hoax will be
EXPOSED for Who your are NOT

___________________________________________________________

Stop Pretending that you Belong to yourself
Once you have been Truly Saved
YOU Belong To Christ for He paid for your Rights
ALL of them with A High Price
He Died so you can Live Free
YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN

___________________________________________________________

When people say "I need to go out and Kick it"
What they are Really saying is " I am going to go LOOSE myself"
I am going to go out and Live the way I want to
This is Not the Life Christ Died for you to LIVE


___________________________________________________________

There is no Greater Joy than doing the Perfect Will of God
To be able to help change the course of another person's life
Through the power of Christ is Truly something to behold
It really is not about You people
For if it is limited to you you're missing out on so much MORE
___________________________________________________________


All of your shortcomings all of your Past failures
The liabilities in your life are nothing more than opportunity for God
Put God in all of that and it is called a Testimony
Take God out of that and all your are left with is
A life of shame guilt and condemnation & deservedly so
This is why The Savior came to Save us from ourselves
To do His will Not our own will

___________________________________________________________

Realize that When you Give your life to Christ , that it is going to forever change your life . You will have an enemy who wants to destroy you and sift you as wheat . You will be Adopted into the Royal Family of God and you will be refined you will be sculpted by Any means necessary to Conform you into the image of Christ. I wish I could tell you when you give your life to Christ that it was going to be all peaches and cream and a bed full of roses and you will have "your best life now" but it could not be any further from the truth. You will suffer and it will ALL be for Meaning and purpose but with a Goal and if you allow this goal to transform your life you will Go on to do great and mighty things for the LORD .

When you realize that it is Not about you at all and it is about God's good and Perfect will it will enable you to realize that you are being prepared to be at OTHERS crossroads in their life to help them in ways God will reveal to you.

Not to mention you are indeed washed clean and forgiven you are a new creation the Old has passed and the new has come. You are no longer to use abuse or Any other situation or circumstance that have came from your past as an out for any reason. The problem is that most do not Except this and try to cling to the past . The past is gone the new will come and as long as you are willing to go ALL IN and i mean ready to go where HE takes you no matter where or what that looks like. You must be able to go with HIS current and not against it . We are here to do the will of Him who created us not live our own life the way we think it should be lived . But submit and obey Christ and that means picking up your cross DAILY and following Christ at ALL cost no matter what . It is like a marriage for better or worst thick and thin when things are good and bad you must be able to praise him. He calls us HIS Bride an we enter into a covenant with him that is Binding . A marriage not like the contract marriages we see today but a real marriage, one that man can not undo.

Just know that if you submit and obey that God will Transform your life in more ways than you can ever imagine

___________________________________________________________

Father in the name of Jesus I come to you a humble servant first of all thanking you
for your mercies that were renewed today
thank you for today Lord
I ask that we would receive the everlasting word of God
That our ears would be attentive to your message
bind the enemy at the door
May your Perfect word penetrate our dull ears and stoney hearts May your will be done
Have your way with us
May we be blessed to Receive a Greater a understanding of your Son in Jesus Christ name AMEN !!!

___________________________________________________________

If people would come to understand that Christ IS real & He loves you so deeply
Now come into the knowledge of this Truth
Christ it Real & the enemy wants to Conceal this but Only for a time
The day will come When Christ Will Come & Reign
He wants to Reign In your Heart
LET HIM

___________________________________________________________

Do Not let others Insanity
Invade your own Sanity
For it does not take long to indulge in their Insanity
Keep your distance

___________________________________________________________

IF you find yourself Always having to be "right"
For All of the times you are "wrong"
You will miss out on the chance to do one thing
And that is
TO GROW

___________________________________________________________

There are bad days and flashbacks but We are FREE it was NEVER our fault
we were sentenced to life by this curse
but we have the Gift of healing for others
if we Use it to help set others free of the shame guilt and secrecy of this tragedy
Find your Freedom IN CHRIST
and even when man fails you , you will always have the support you need and deserve

___________________________________________________________

God has taken what man meant for bad and used it For His GLORY
I just happen to be along for the ride

___________________________________________________________

We all have a deep inner sense of the divine in all of us
Placed there as a spark.
This spark is waiting to be ignited into a burning light
An ALL consuming fire to shine before ALL
As proof of the Most High God

___________________________________________________________

The alcoholic is only searching for God in a bottle
The drug addict is merely searching for God in his or hers next fix
The whorelet is only searching for God in the bedroom
or in the alley or wherever it may be
The man knocking on the whorelets door goes there looking and searching for God
Plainly put the sinner is only searching for relief from his or her sins
and all the destructive things that come from their sin
in all the wrong places
The VOID we all have can ONLY be filled by GOD !!

___________________________________________________________

DO NOT try to fake it until you make it
Because the REALITY of your TRUE state
WILL be SKEWED
___________________________________________________________

Do not make life about yourself
Instead make your life unto the Glory of GOD
Do not like your job? Do it unto the Glory of GOD
Do not like school ? Do it unto the Glory of GOD
Take your life and make it about GOD & his GLORY
Life will not only become more peaceful and enjoyable
Life will make sense
Unto self life is just miserable

___________________________________________________________

Everything done in dark will be exposed to the light
anyway If you are a child of God
You might as well deal with it now
because it will have to be dealt with sooner or later
It is the weak things that give God the most Glory anyway
In our weakness lies our Greatest Strength for God to put on Display through us for Him

___________________________________________________________

Why are you jealous of what I have
If you knew what it took & takes to have what God has given me
You probably would not want it

___________________________________________________________

Only after you Acknowledge your Own weaknesses & failures
You can overcome them
AFTER you OVERCOME them
You OWE it to others to reach out & help them out of their own
DENIAL

___________________________________________________________

Do Not live your life as an
Atheist Christian
Believing in God yet Living your Life In a manner
As if He did Not Exist
Christians are known by their fruit
If you bear no fruit you Will be cut down & thrown into the fire
Be Authentic

___________________________________________________________

The Brokenness Inside is something to Enable you to Draw Nearer to God
Problem is Most use it as an Excuse
to drive a wedge between themselves & The One that can
Mend The Brokenness
___________________________________________________________

God I Love Being A Husband & a Father
It is absolutely mind boggling how Anyone
could walk away from such a Gloriously Privileged Opportunity to partake in such Love
___________________________________________________________

Through All of life's ups downs
trials
situations & circumstances
through the hurt pain anger and frustrations of this life's demands
At the end of the day it is LOVE
that will bind it All together and produce Fruit

___________________________________________________________

The Hidden Man is who God wants to bring
Front and Center
The Hidden man That operates In the Dark
This is Who God wants to make Righteous
Everything Done in the Dark Shall Come to The Light
This is where Growth Takes place

___________________________________________________________
