These are my bible study notes from Wednesday & Thursday
they are the notes I take during class. There have been a fair amount of great responses on my Facebook page and a page I share at work .The point of this thread is to simply share the teaching I get with anyone willing to listen.These lessons have greatly strengthened my walk my faith and these teachings have helped in many areas of addictions from alcohol drugs and pornography and have influenced my healing from sexual abuse . God has used this ministry to bring me out of all of these things. May they be a blessing

Bible Study (notes) 9/8/2013

There are things to be working on in our spiritual life every single day.I can not do the finished work of Christ if i am consumed with self. We have because of God ,if you are indeed  faithful over few things God will give you more and not just material things but spiritual things.Working and walking in our spiritual is minute by minute hour by hour.I can not be a good steward and be selfish but selfless.I should not be carrying things from last year into this year .If i was doing the work than the things that did hinder me from last year would not be brought into the new year.When you are consistant enough the things from last week that hindered you should not be bleeding into the new week because you should access the hindrances and than quickly handled them.You really have to know yourself and your weaknesses so you can properly access your situation. You have to be very real with yourself not fake if you are being fake and not honest you are just wasting your time this is wasted efforts selfish efforts.Be selfless and be honest .Do not go to the alter without sincerity in your heart .Be mindful who we are and what direction we are going spiritually.Live a life of gratitude .You can not do the work for someone else you can pray with others to help them along the way but in the end they have to do the work.Everyone has their own work to do some do not have as much work to do in their life because some people have not made a huge mess out of their life.Some people have not made a mess of their life and been in the mire and rut of things so i have to not worry about someone else's life and the work they have to do when it becomes a hindrence to me.You are more free in Christ than in sin. We think that living in sin is somehow freeing  but in actuality if you think about it this is a mirage it is not real it only has the appearance of freedom but in the end it ends in chains and bondage and ultimately death whether it be physical mental and most definitely spiritual death .There is freedom in and through Christ Jesus do not be misled by the illusion that sin is freedom .All you have to do is look at your life and the chains that sin has brought into your life in order to realize this truth.

We must learn what is in the word of God we simply do not no enough about the word of God. Most do not know what is in the word of God because there is power in the word of God and the enemy does not want you to know the power you have in the word of God.The bible is the washing we need to be cleansed it will renew and refresh us by the reading of the word. The word of God is our mirror.James talks about the one who hears the word but does not apply it these people will not make it.These are those who do not bear fruit.There is always preparations for our life but it is those who are always seeming to prepare but are never able to apply what they are preparing for are always found out when things do happen in their life they fall to pieces instead of applying what was learned.  God always prepares you for what is going to happen in your life you might not listen you might not take heed to that which is being shown to you but that is on you not god or anyone else. If you do not do the work it takes to be prepared for what is to come you will away be devoured by situations & circumstances.If you are listening to the holy spirit than it is going to lead and guide you in all things. Christ is where you go in all things not your feelings not your emotions but Christ and his holy spirit . It is not about your feelings it is about the promises of God therfore get out of your feelings .When you leave the direction of the holy spirit you will do damage to yourself and to others around you. You must instill the power of Christ in your children because it is easy to stay rooted and grounded in Christ sitting next to mom and dad in church but when they leave home they have to know the power of Christ for themselves in order to be able to handle all the the enemy and the world will inevitably throw at them.

What are the motivations behind my actions?There is always something motivating me whether it be divine,self,or satanic. The enemy is going to come against all of the spiritual fruit in my life.You always have to be able to look beyond the outside of people because it is the inside that is the real person . A person can look OK on the outside but on the Inside are torn up spiritually the only way we can really know a person is spiritually and this is discerned through and from the spirit . We are equipped to be as Christ through the holy spirit .In reality we are preparing to die this life is all preparation to die because one thing is for sure we are all going to die so we are to be preparing for our eternal death as Christians. Be careful what you are worshiping in your life,things you can taste touch see all of the things of the senses the enemy wants to entice your flesh so that you will worship the things of the flesh . Ask the holy spirit to reveal the things that you are worshiping. How many doors have been opened to me and how many doors have I opened for others the thing is this works both ways good and evil. The enemy wants to open doors for you to hinder the fruits of the spirit the gifts talents and abilities God has given freely to you .The enemy wants to hinder your growth at every turn and you have to not only know this you have to expect it so you can deal with the attacks effectively .  The enemy wants to plant resentment in your heart because this tool can prevent you from hearing what god would have you to hear from whom he would would send but resentment will block out everything being said . Resentment in marriage and friendships is something Satan loves because so much confusions and chaos can be stirred up also you can not fully love people with any kind of resentment in your heart . Resentment invites others demons such as bitterness,hatred and anger to come and dwell within you and when all of these forces are influencing you they are all things that will hinder you and others around you. When you are in this place of resentment you can not give love or receive love  .You must expel these forces out of your life , the enemy does not want you to be delivered from these forces because when you are free from these forces you are free to do the will of God with the power and authority you where created to do it with.

there has been a theme running through my life in the last few weeks. almost a month now.

this keeps coming up.


romans chapter 8

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


it has turned up over and over again.
any thoughts?
what is god trying to tell me?

i am dealing with addiction issues, could that be it?
i just quit nicotine, thc, and caffeine... again.

I love Romans and just recently finished teaching a few month long study on the book. I love Romans 8. SO much in there.

If I were told I could only have one part of the Bible and nothing else, well it would be John, but right after that, Romans.

another coincidence?

it came up in German church this morning and in Japanese church this afternoon.

i think i will have to pray and meditate on this chapter.

obviously there is some extremely important message in there
for me at this precise moment in time.

i am experiencing a series of extreme events over which i have no control.

The fruit of the spirit are the every characteristics of Christ . Never get comfortable in marriage , friendships , church because when you get comfortable the enemy can attack while you are weak .The enemy wants to destroy the fruit of the spirit he wants to attack the holy spirit. Satan wants you to not utilize your gifts he wants you to sit on your gifts talents and abilities. Do not get stagnant in your life or in your ministry .The enemy wants to distract people from their ministry and their calling not only to hinder your own growth but all of the people that you should be sharing what God has done for and to share in order to help the body of Christ reach their potential in Christ. If there is anything that is being lifted up above Christ than they are distractions and idols . Prophecy will always be in line with scripture. The demon of doubt will block out your receiving the prophecy , the demon of doubt will block you from your healing the demon of doubt will block the message in a sermon from your ears from hearing the message God has for you through the holy spirit.

Do not try to have a revival when the people you are trying to revive have not been converted. The enemy will distract the church and have them doing things such as revival to unconverted people .Revival is for the converted but the enemy will have the church confused by trying to use revival in the wrong way. There are doors that have been open and doors people have open up to me and there are doors i have open up for other people good and bad spiritual and not spiritual. The enemy always targets households because most abuse and chaos starts in the home so he starts in the home so it can spread out and hop from generation to generation .The demon of resentment will block you from loving your spouse the way he/she needs to be love because resentment is blocking the love that needs to be in the relationship. Resentment hurts you the most not other people because the people you are resenting do not even have a clue half the time so you are being destroyed from the inside . Resentment will cause you to not be able to live a full life . God does not care who you like he will send who he wants to give you the message he has for you. If you resent the person God sends to you than you will not be able to receive the message or the love God is trying to reveal to you through the one you are resenting. Some are resenting their fathers or mothers that were not there in their life instead of looking at it like
They were not there for a reason if they wanted to be there in your life they would of been there they where the ones that missed out not you, you do not want a person like that in your life to begin with but you are so caught up with resentment you are blinded by the fact your life was spared from having these people in your life to begin with. Who knows how you would of ended up if a irresponsible person like that was in your life, you were better of not ever having to have the irresponsible mother or father in your life to begin with . If you have been carrying around resentment of any kind realize it is hindered your growth as a person hindered your growth spiritually and it has blocked you from becoming all that you are meant to be.

this just entered my mind during a fairly intense prayer.

god made me in his image.
i have been trying to reverse that ever since.


romans ch:1
21 For although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God nor did they thank him,
but they became empty-headed in their reasonings and their senseless hearts became darkened.
22 Although claiming they were wise, they became foolish
23 and turned the glory of the incorruptible God into something like the image of corruptible man and birds and four-footed creatures and reptiles.

Knowing we are made in the image of God is an awesome thing. The fruit of the spirit are the very characteristics of God an this is the image he is conforming us to . Literally giving us access to his divine nature

As born again Christians we must steward our gifts and we are to use them to glorify Christ and the church. There are demonic forces that will always try to block you from utilizing your gifts and why wouldn't the enemy want this? Satan's greatest attacks will be on the fruit of the spirit because the fruit of the spirit are the very characteristics of Christ. It is not the fruits but the fruit embodying All of them into one.
Galatians 5:22-23
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 meekness, self- control; against such there is no law.
You need all of these ingredients and yet some only have one or more but as Christians Christ is going to conform you to the image of Christ and he will develop all of them in you bringing fourth all of them in you through the power of the holy spirit. He will do this by exposing your weaknesses in order for you to begin strengthening and conditioning by the renewing your mind and by the leading and guidance of the holy spirit. The spirit will always deal with Truth in your life always leading you to the information in the word of God and through people and sermons and the like all in order to help empower you to eventually overcome your weaknesses. Grace is found while in the midst of the transition stages from weakness into strength which leads to empowerment and overcoming. Grace is never to be used as an excuse to stay weak for grace always leads to eventual empowerment. Just as a cake has many ingredients in order to be a cake so to does the fruit of the spirit has many ingredients to produce the characteristics of Christ. The holy spirit will lead you and guide you as you acknowledge Christ in All your ways in order that he may direct your path and he will do just that lead and guide you if you allow him to . When you do deny self and pick up your cross and follow him Daily he will lead you away from chaos destructiveness and although painful the more he prunes you and refines you burning out the impurities so that you will eventually be as gold conforming you into the image of Christ. Do not depend on self , become identified with Christ In Christ and depend on His power and His might because we are always limited in self but In Christ he is unlimited. We can tell when we are outside of the holy spirit because we act outside of the fruit of the spirit
love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, self- control.
The laws of man will never be enough it never has it never will it takes the power and might of the holy spirit it takes the fruit of the spirit to restrain the hearts and will of men and woman. This is just a fact. The law of man does not really prevent us from breaking the law. Walking In the Power and Might of the Holy Spirit and in the fruit of the spirit it is an impossibility to break mans law or Gods law for his good and perfect will is done through both of them . God is definitely going to prune you in order for you to bring fourth more fruit not only for you but so others can eat from your fruit that you are bearing so that one day they will be able to bear their own fruit. You Must remain In Christ and him in you so that you can bear good fruit. Apart from Christ he will Not be able to bring fourth in you the fruit of the spirit.

There are things we must repent of and this does not necessarily have to be for our own sin but repenting of the anger towards those who have wronged us. The hatred towards another should be loosed and repented of so that You can bring the spirit of forgiveness in and love and of grace and mercy freeing you Completely not just temporarily. Repent of the hatred and anger turning away from such things and than replace them with the fruit of the spirit one in which is love. This is meeting God's requirement for Deliverance in order to be freed of this poison of anger and hatred or any thing you can fill in the blank with that you need deliverance from. No one is saying this is easy or is going to be easy but recognize until you do this you will continue to be out of divine order and your life will continue to have unnecessary stress. Your relationship with God will never be where it needs to be because God wants you to surrender all of these things in order to become more Christ like and to be able for you to see his power and glory displayed in your life not only for your sake but for the sake of others as well. If you do not forgive trespassers your heavenly father will not be able to forgive you of your trespasses this is scripture plain and simple. Do not give anyone this much influence and power in your life. This is a process but it is absolutely a necessity in order to receive all that God has for you. This is indeed a hard teaching but in all actuality after embracing this truth you will find this is not as hard as Satan has made it out to be . Because he knows by holding on to anger bitterness hatred and unforgiveness you will not be able to live in the peace of God that surpasses all your understanding. In your humaness you can not understand doing these things in the natural . Do not lean on your own understanding but in all of your ways acknowledge him and let him direct your path. Once again God will always lead you In to truth and his word and his word says you must do these things. This is truth that will save your life. You must keep the living water flowing in your life . You must stay connected to Christ stay connected to the vine so that you can bear the fruit you inevitably need to have . Allow the living flowing water to continually flow into your life in order to keep you fresh because you will get stagnant without the living water flowing. You can never stop doing the work Ever !!

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

You can never stop doing the work Ever !!

You must keep the living water flowing in your life.

The fear of Jehovah is a fountain of life,
That one may avoid the snares of death.

For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.

Jesus stood and cried out, saying,
"If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.
He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said,
From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water."

John 7:37-38

The Potter 10/6/2013

Isaiah 29:16 , 45:9 , 64:8
Jeremiah 18:1-6
Romans 9:21


If you truly believe in God than how can you be insecure or doubt yourself ?. You need to be able to except your personality as wonderfully and fearfully made by the creator God who thought highly enough to take the time to stitch you together in your mothers womb. God made you just the way he wanted you , so why do you not come to except this?. God is the potter he formed you the way he wanted and he is pleased so why are you not pleased?. The inside of a person the spirit of a person is where beauty comes from truly. For there are many people who on the outside look appealing but the inside is wretched. Many on the outside not so appealing to the eye but from within there is such a profound beauty.
When you can come into the knowledge that God is who he says he is and that he made you with purpose and on purpose you can start living the way he intended you to live. Do not argue with the way God made you because he is the creator he is divine and knows what he is doing far above anything you can wrap your God created mind around. You will always be miserable questioning what God made you to be , the way he made you. You have to love who God made you to be, because you will find yourself shaped and molded into what other people want you to be instead of the the beautiful person God made you and created you to be. If you do not love yourself you are loosing sight of what God sees and desires you to be and you loose sight of the love you are to have for yourself. God knows and knew what he was doing when he made you .You are the product of Gods creative passion. You should be excited about yourself because you are the only person like you on the whole planet . Out of billions of people you are the only one like you. You are so so unique in the entire universe that you are the only one that looks like you talks like you and is the very core being God created you to be and you should embrace what God created not reject it. Do not let others be your mirror not people , when you allow people to dictate what you look like they become your God. See your worth in Christ not the worthiness that comes from people because people change their opinions and worthiness but in Christ your worth was so esteemed he died for you. Find your worth in Christ because he made you he died for you he saw fit to give you meaning and purpose in him apart from him you can do nothing. God will take the old you the old man or woman and create you new in Christ he does not go and get a new person but he crushes you in order to rebuild you again so that you can see clearly what he sees and to show you that apart from him you can do nothing. When God created you he formed you to do his will and we get into trouble by taking detours, trying to form and shape our own lives the way we see fit when there is only one potter and he will do with us the clay what he wants he will mold us the way he sees fit. God will mold and take you through things in order to showcase his artwork to show his glory through you so be excited about being made with the purpose to be thought highly enough by God to use you for His glory. God has the right to make average he has the right to make rich poor what ever he chooses. We do not have the right to question what God has made because he is far above our reasoning.

Bible study (notes) 3/20/2014All of the seasons of our lives are preparation and lessons. We need to be able to learn and grow through these lessons. So many people dismiss the devil and this allows satan to continue to harass people while giving credit to other things. So much going on in this world has to do with spiritual conditions.  We are all in need of  intercessory prayer. There are people God has placed around you that should be able to pray for you and with you to help you overcome spiritual warfare. Some peoples faith is stronger than your own and if your faith is lacking than you should allow and seek out intercessory prayer . You must know your own spiritual condition and you must not be in denial about it. When you try to help those who's spiritual condition is worst off than your own they have the ability to bring you under and leave you in a worst condition than you where before the encounter. You need to recognize that giving spiritual advice to unsaved carnal people will draw blank stares and misunderstandings. You need to discern who you are talking to and how,because you can do more damage preaching to those who need taught or teaching someone who needs witnessing .You talk to people with salvation differently than those who do not have salvation. People that have salvation should be overcoming their situations and circumstances by the power and blood of Jesus Christ. Those who are stuck in their past are just like someone running up a hill looking backwards.Never able to gain proper ground. Those who are underneath the authority and the power of the holy spirit will run up the hill looking forward , able to continuously gain the proper ground needed to reach into the future . Anyone who does not have salvation is dead in their transgression and sin and spiritually dead but when one receives salvation they becomes alive and spiritually resurrected .  The holy spirit is the only thing that has the power to resurrect the spiritually dead.  Salvation is deliverance and we do not have the power to deliver anyone. So many need deliverance from themselves.

Deceiving Spirit
3/16/2014


Deceive-  To make a person believe what is not true; to mislead by a false appearance or statement; to be unfaithful to deliberate misrepresentation of facts by words or actions.

Do not entertain a deceptive spirit. You must come to understand who you are and who's you are In Christ. There is a need to have a discerning spirit not only to discern others and the kind of spirits they are entertaining but for discerning what spirits we are entertaining ourselves.  A deceptive spirit will lead you to believe that you are less than but the fact of the matter is that you are sons and daughters of the most high God. Do not be mislead by a deceiving spirit that would have you denouncing this fact. You truly Can do all things through Christ which will strengthen so there is no need to live in a place of deceit.  Satan is a liar and the father of lies , do not get caught up believing the lies he tries to feed you. The woman at the well did not believe enough about herself and believe that she was not even worthy enough to speak to Jesus but Jesus did not condemn her nor did he reject her. God does not reject anyone therefore do not be deceived that you can not bring anything before him. Jesus accepts and does not reject but the enemy will deceive you into believing that you are less than and will have you to believe that you can not come before Christ with your sin . God wants those to come to him in spirit and In  Truth not with deceit.  GOD is all powerful and must be worshipped in spirit and Truth when you come to God with your true heart no matter what condition it is in as long as your are not being deceptive he will accept you.
The person that we might think God could not and would not use is the exact person that God will use in a mighty way because these people know who and what they were and are excited to walk in the newness of Christ choosing to walk out of the old life and into the new. The person that is deceived about who they were can not accept who God says they can be. How will you walk in the light if you are deceived ? We are to walk in the light not in the dark . God knows the heart therefore it is impossible to fool God he knows whether you are being deceptive.  You may deceive people by with the outside having people think you are walking in the light while living in darkness the whole time. Hiding is a key component of deceit otherwise why hide whatever it is you are hiding? Bring that which in the dark into the light . What is done in the dark shall come to the light one way or another if you truly belong to Christ. Living a lie and hiding your sin allows you not to be able to grow this will keep you from truly being free. Having a deceptive spirit keeps you in the dark. If you are walking and living in deceit , you can choose  to walk in the light you can choose to no longer live in deceit by stepping into Truth . Renounce sin and deceit and walk and live in the truth and newness of Christ.

Bible study (notes)
4/2/2014

There are things we do not need to pray for because God has equipped us with spiritual weapons to overcome. Love is one of the greatest weapons we have . Not the kind of love that is found in relationships . This type of love is vulnerable because people say i fell in love and than fell out of love. God's love is in spite of what we have done or will do. Where as people's distorted view of love is a "because of" love . I "love you until" or "I love you because of" One must be in the spirit of love or one can not or will not recieve love in the proper way. You can not force love on someone that does not want to receive love but you can pray for them and there heart to be softened. Love covers a multitude of sins . By loving those you might not necessarily like , it will have enough keeping power in order to keep you from heaping sins upon yourself by the way you otherwise would be treating said person. When a person will not receive love , there is a reason behind it. Love to an evil spirit will cause it to flee. Evil people can not handle people filled with love. Love is a weapon that is forged by God to break down demonic strongholds. You should respond to a negative or wicked person not with negativity or wickedness . You have lost control if you do. Instead act out of love and stay in control. Do not give someone that kind of power that can control over you. He that angers you controls you. Mathews 5:43-48
Christ says love your enemies because he knows that by not exhibiting love he would become like minded. We are to love those who are least worthy in our own eyes. None of us are above needing love in our lives. Live out love the way God loves not the way people love. Let love settle arguments . Realize God loves the un-lovely so we should return the action. Romans 5:8
The discerning spirit will allow you to see deeper into someone and their situation. Love will tell you when to when not to and will even tell you to shut your mouth and let someone else deal with someone's situation. Love is a powerful weapon in the hands of a skilful warrior. Sometimes love is painful for the other person because love restricts and protects. Love is not soft love is true. When you harden your own heart than you are stopping the holy spirit from working.

4/13/2014 - RECOVERY


Slavery :  The condition of being a slave; bondage; a condition of submission to or dominion by some influence, habit etc.

Recovery: The act or an instance of recovering; specific; a regaining of something lost or stolen a return to health, consciousness, etc. A regaining of balance, control, composure.

Isaiah 61:1Romans 7:14-25 , Rom 8:3-4 , Rom 7:24-25, Luke 4:18


You do not have to live in slavery in a spiritual sense. A slave to your past a slave to an addiction a slave to anything that is keeping you from living the victorious life that Christ died for you to live.
Worry can keep in bondage also. You are always recovering from something because we are always to be growing. Do not let others steal your joy or ensnare you or trap you. You must be balanced in your life and you can not have balance if you are bound by something. 
You have to continue to gain control of your life day by day and being in recovery whether it is from drugs,alcohol, pornography, or what ever ensnares and enslaves you. The flesh speaks a different language than the spirit and wants to be heard the flesh wants to war with the spirit because the spirit also wants to heard so this creates the war. God does not give up on you and neither will sin .
Rom 7:15-2315 For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. 16 Now if I do what I do not want, I agree with the law, that it is good. 17 So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.21 So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. 22 For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23 but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.
Every body has a war going on within themselves and some do not know how to overcome this war. Christ Jesus is the only way to overcome this war. Do not judge people because you have know idea the war people have going on writhin themselves instead show grace as God shows us grace every day. See the reason behind peoples issues instead of judging them look beyond the actions and look at the cause. Do not volunteer to be a slave to something.  Those who are slaves to something can recieve freedom in and through Christ Jesus.

Know yourself and live in the truth of what you discover during your assessment of who you really are. Than you can begin to take the appropriate action to work on your weaknesses. You can not wait until your ship has taken on so much water that you are well on your way to sinking before you begin to take action. You have to be able to be truthful with yourself and be willing to bring your sin into the light because sin always wants you to be alone. Sin wants to keep you alone so that it's power can grow to the point of overpowering and overcoming you. You see when sin has you alone it has already deceived you to the point of secrecy. Anytime you find yourself alone with your sin you have allowed deceit to nestle in. This is why you must do continual inventory of self to see exactly where you are in your walk with Christ because the enemy is constantly seeking who he can devour . Knowing yourself and assessment of yourself is a sure way to gage where you are and what the holy spirit wants you to work on. Do not get so entangled that there is so much work that it becomes overwhelming. Watch the door of weakness because Satan is always waiting to come in . You are the one that allows him access. The handle is on the inside and most people do not understand this truth. Satan wants to come through the door of weakness and close the door behind him so that he can separate you from the light. Do not allow sin to take up residency. Pride is the culprit of prevention of acknowledgment of our sin. To turn the handle of pride is the first step needed in order to open the door to evict the sin that has gotten comfortable In your life. Without confession of our sin we become helplessly vulnerable to satans controlling will. If we guard the doors of weaknesses in our lives and be sure to fortify them than the enemy will not be able to come in so easily. Assessment and inventory of self gives you the opportunity to see the exposed areas in your life. Submission of your will and the laying down of pride enables you to seek out Godly wisdom . After seeking out Godly wisdom than you must be submissive to the Godly wisdom and advice that is given because clearly listening to the voice of justification and compromise does not nor will it ever work. If you are not willing to listen to truth and are only interested in listening to someone that will only tell you what you want to hear than you Clearly have no intention of change. The person that seeks out Godly wisdom and advice from someone that will lay truth before them wants to shoot down justification and compromise in order to Grow. If sin has you alone than it is time to take it and expose it to the light. Once into the light the sin will loose it's power over you. Sins enemy is called accountability. When you desire accountability for the sin that is now exposed , your chances of gaining victory over your sin increases tremendously. This is because truth is being embraced instead of denial. Take inventory of your life and assess where you are weak at and than take the necessary steps to strengthen the weak areas. It's time to stop allowing sin to get you alone and have it's way with you. It's time to go to work.

God has designed everyone with a void specifically for him to fill. We spend a lot of time and effort trying fill this void with everything except God. We were created to worship. The problem we face is worshiping other thing's. The things we place before God become idols. One of the most important parts of church is praise and worship because this is the one thing we can give God. 4 pillars of a mans heart is a book that every man should read. Men love to be worshipped just as God loves to be worshipped. The worship men receive from woman is different than the worship that we give God. If you worship God than you will be fulfilled not needing anything else to worship. Love is a spiritual quality and not a physical quality. We have either merged the two or completely swapped them out. Most people believe love is physical. You must be able to know he difference between the spiritual and the physical. When you love a persons spirit you are on the right track because the physical is going to deteriorate while the spirit can stay the same. The spiritual side of a person is what you should love. People fall in love with the physical and anything you can fall in with you can fall out of. You need the love for God and the love of God in your life and when you reach this place you will live contented. We love God and recieve his love and than we can love people correctly. The command of God to love others is based on the love we are to have for him and the love he has for us. God is not asking us to do anything he has not or is not doing . God loves therefore we are to love. We are to love even those who dislike us because it is not about them or us it is about God . Think about how God must feel with us and the love he continues to shower us with . Love your enemies and show the love of Christ because at one point we were an enemy of God and he continued to love us anyway and thank God for this. When we sin we are at enmity or hostile towards God and yet he continues to shower us with love and beckons us with love. What is missing in most peoples lives is the love of God and the love for God not thing's not people . Love will give you peace love will give you joy and most importantly contentment. You have to love God more than we love ourselves we are to love God more than anything or anyone. When we live this out our lives we bear more fruit than the world around us.

Work towards consistency daily in Christ. When we are receptive to the holy spirit it will continue to remind us who we are and who's we are. The spirit is always revealing and bearing witness to truth. There are people that are striving to break free from their sin while others are addicted to sin. Sin is like a disease and can quickly spread if left untreated. You have to come with a committed heart to follow Christ. When you are committed to following Christ and are committed to being disciplined , it is an impossibility for God not to change you. If the holy spirit is trying to lead and guide you and you are in the way realize you are quenching the spirit of God the spirit of truth from it's work in you. You should not be telling God you do not want to do his will and turn a deaf ear to him because if you think about it when we petition God we not only want God to hear our petitions we expect him to hear.Do not sink into your mess when you can ask for help. The holy spirit has never done us harm it has never done us wrong. Because people have failed us and let us down than it is easy to lump God into the same mold of not trusting. The flesh is so quick to act and tries to get ahead of the holy spirit. The holy spirit needs to be ahead of the flesh stirring the ship not into peace and calm waters not the flesh stirring us into the storm of chaos deceit and tragedy. Right will always reveal itself to you and when it does do not ignore it.

(Notes) 9/11/2014
-STUCK -

If you live in your past you are stuck. If you allow your past to dwell in your head it will filter down to your soul. We are all products of messed up environments because we are All sinners and with this being the case we will fall victim to one another growing up from childhood into adulthood. The inner stuff in our life is what keeps us stuck are the thing's that continue to nag at you. People begin to want to please people around them more than they want to please God. If you are not willing to bear your soul in truthfulness than you will never allow God to heal you in the area's of your inner being that you are concealing and these area's are keeping you bound they are keeping you stuck. Walking in grace and excepting grace allows you to become unstuck . If you do not truly believe You are truly forgiven you will never be able to forgive yourself. You will never be able to experience Christ if you do not first recognize sin , than the relationship you desire will never come into existence because you will be blinded by it stuck in it. Christ is the lifter of your head so why is your head down ? It is because you are stuck. If you are busy putting on a performance rather than being real you are allowing your brokenness to become deeper and deeper rooted . Do not perform in front of others because it is worthless and meaningless. Being real with where you are at no matter what that involves. I would of never been set free from pas by putting on a performance, while being utterly broken inside. Selling dope allowed me to be the person everyone wanted to be around because I had what others wanted and had money. This was a performance because I was literally dying inside from being molested for 5 yrs of my life by 2 males and from being shuffled from house to house and never being able to have a stable environment. Alcohol and drugs allowed me to continue the performance of covering up my reality to the point I became an alcoholic and drug addict. It was not until I spoke these thing's out and stop performing for people and stop trying to measure up to any and everyone else's expectations. What are you keeping in ? What is keeping you stuck and what is keeping you from speaking these realities out loud and confessing ? I spoke about my deep and personal things in hopes it will allow you to become unstuck and to able to walk in the same freedom that I now walk in. I was trapped and ultimately stuck until I allowed God to work in and recognized my utter dependence upon him. To be known and to be accepted is a need we all have and in reality we all spent or are still spending time chasing this void to be filled . God IS THE ONLY one that can fill this void. We spend our time, being an imperfect people trying to please an imperfect person how crazy is that? Instead of knowing we are imperfect and allowing a perfect and holy God to move out our imperfections. He who conceals their sin stays stuck those who confess their sin receives mercy grace and forgiveness. It is a fight against our nature to have to depend on someone, but God wants us to be dependent upon him . Ask yourself why is this a struggle ? The only answer is God the father God the son God the holy spirit is pulling us prodding us and the the enemy is trying to convince you otherwise. Not realizing most people are found through their brokenness because God loves a broken and contrite spirit. We are willing to seek out God when we are broken we are now willing to listen to him . Do not allow your past to keep you stuck. Do not allow all that God has for you in exchange for settling for less and staying bound and stuck where you are at. You are more than you might think, you are a child of the most high true and living God.

Long Suffering

Long suffering is something that is hard to wrap our heads around more so than the other ingredients of the fruit of the spirit. Excepting pain without complaining is hard to do but if you begin to focus on overcoming and thinking of what others are going through on a day to day basis than it tends to make enduring long suffering in a healthier much easier way .You can believe in God you can believe on God but do you Believe God ?? When you begin to believe God ,trust God and stand on his promises this will enable you to endure long suffering because you also come to understand that God does not make mistakes. Long suffering when handled in the spirit,it will teach you to make your joy complete. In Christ we are allowed to use situations and circumstances  to use as testimonies and a ministry to others. If you do not grasp long suffering you will continue to have to go through things until you learn how to go through them successfully with the fruit of the spirit. God knows exactly what it takes to conform us to the image of Christ he knows exactly what it takes to conform you into the image of Christ. Be still and know that I am God is something that can and will help you to tolerate and handle things in such a way as not to complain. Do not personalize things when dealing with people because you really do not know what their situation or circumstances are . When you personalize other people's problems you are making their problems your own ,hence the self inflicted offence. Ask pain what it has to teach you because there is always something to be learned through the process of pain.  You can either grow through pain or you can simply go through pain with no growth at all and more than likely revisit . Long suffering is a brilliant way to teach us patience because long suffering and patience go hand in hand , you can not have one without the other if you think about it. If you considering it pure joy when trials and temptations are occurring you know and understand that this is with divine plan and purpose and in the end produces what it needs to in your life , I say again God know exactly what you need to conform you into the image of his son. God knows what he is doing he does not make mistakes ,even if we would like to think he does. Jam 1:2-4 (Esv)
2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

I love the way the voice version puts this
James 1:2-4The Voice (VOICE)

2-4 Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressure and teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journey and cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing.

Wisdom Produces Understanding
11/9/2014

There are a lot of decisions I have made without instruction and direction. The word of God is the instructions we need to live this life. It is like buying something and trying to build it without reading the instruction manual and than blaming the manufacturer for the difficulty. The same logic applies when we go off on our own path leaning to our own understanding and than blaming God for the horrible choices we have made. Praying for wisdom is what the word of God asks us to pray for. Wisdom comes from God. Knowledge of what is true or right coupled with sound judgment as to action,discernment or insight soundness of mind. Had we had the wisdom and knowledge of God we would of not of made the horrible decisions we have all made. God is the source of all wisdom but we have to turn to him for guidance. You can not treat God like a part time lover . You have to be willing to be brutally honest with yourself and bring everything that you are hiding behind into the open. You have to stop lying to yourself being deceived by the father of lies thinking you can continue sinning willfully without any true intentions to change that God is somehow excepting of this. You can not live in a perpetual state of sin without true repentance which is to ask for forgiveness and turn away from the sin you are embracing .Do you honestly think you are pleasing to God embracing sin?
Wisdom reveals an understanding of all of the things God has been speaking into your life through the holy spirit and through people. If you fail to embrace the wisdom God is providing you ,expect nothing more than the tormented spirit you are currently dealing with. People think they have to give up life's pleasures as if God does not have something better and lasting. The peace of God dwells with those who submit to his authority. Those that depend on their own judgment will be like a ship thrown around in the sea with no real direction,carried away by every wave and by the wind . Anyone who ask God for wisdom will receive it because God is not prejudice . The one who ask must not doubt. People may not like you and people might even be prejudice ,but God's will is that ALL be saved and there is nothing on the other side of ALL. People pick and choose who may come but God does not . Wisdom will save your life . Do no blame God for lacking wisdom , instead take ownership of the places you have placed yourself in. Medicating ourselves with drugs alcohol sex money whatever to try and mask the pain we experience for not calling on wisdom. It starts with opening yourself to being brutally honest and truthful with yourself and willing to exchange your own understanding for the wisdom and understanding from God. Find wisdom and you will be blessed . Wisdom is more precious than gold or any other thing you can grasp yourself apart from it. Wisdom is free , you have tried everything else why not seek wisdom ? Do not forsake wisdom and you will be protected. Love wisdom and wisdom will watch over you. Reject wisdom and you will be on your own ,wisdom is a hearing heart and produces understanding. When God speaks and it is understood and acted upon it becomes supreme instruction. At all cost get an understanding leaning not to your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge him so that he not you may direct your path.

As faithful as God is to you and for you ask yourself the question are you faithful to God ? Have the mind frame that God does indeed have you covered. Believing that no weapon formed against you shall prosper and standing on this ,enables you to know that no matter who does what or says what at the end of the day he will cover it.
When it comes to raising our children in the principles of God and of the things of God we are to be honorable to God. If we are not in divine order with God first as honorable parents how will our children be ? Parents can not be their children's friend God calls us to be their Godly parent's. Why is it that God has been so faithful and given us so much more and allows us to have abundance and yet complain about nearly everything. Growing up the very few that we did have we were thankful and grateful to have it. Now a days we have so much more and all we want is more ,more,more. God did say he will supply our every need not our every want. Being grateful and stewarding well what God has given you goes a long way towards being in a position to receive more. Do not be a taker and expect to gain without handling what God has given.
What are you doing with your life that represents God ? Or is life all about you ? Appreciate what you have appreciate that you have clothes,shoes,food .Start with just the needs that are being met even if it is not being met in the way that you think they should . The fact that you have when many many others do not should show you that you are indeed blessed. Do not pick your blessings instead of being thankful and recognizing the blessings you already have. You can make a bad decision only to be gratified for one minute but is it worth the countless minutes of hell that decision will cost you ? Keep your heart open and your mind open acknowledging God first so that you can receive far sight and insight into what to do when to do and how to do.

12/3/2014 { get this it will change everything}

What are sins that hinder you and not just sin but anything that is hindering you? The sins that are hindering your walk with Christ not some one else's sin and not just the sin that everyone else talks about such as drunkenness, sexual sin and all of the common ones people like to talk about. What about filthy language or not utilizing time wisely. You have to know the race that is set before you ? When you are running the race God has set before you than you have to constantly be aware of what it is exactly that is hindering your race. So many people are waiting for God to take things away from them that which God clearly says in his word that YOU are to shed whatever is hindering you . Instead of asking asking God to move things ask him for the courage to throw off what is hindering you and take responsibility to do what God equips you to do. Why if you are insecure you are asking God to remove this when he told you to shed what is hindering you ? Why if you need to shed fear in your life than why are you waiting for God to remove it ? Hebrews 12 New International Version (NIV)

12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let US THROW OFF EVERYTHING THAT HINDERS and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
This race is not about just you because if you are not where you are supposed to be then others will be hindered also.

Hope

This world will bring great disappointment and you have to put your armor on. There will be great tragedy and as Christians we must be able to keep the hope in Christ Jesus that he is in control which allows us the peace we need to keep things moving. We are people of understanding and when things happen that we do not understand , it is a must that we fix our eyes as well as our faith on Christ Jesus which in turn produces hope and hope perseverance  the word of God puts it like this.
Peace and Hope
Romans 5:5-5
5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the  
Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

  We need to wait with anticipation for our season to change. Look at your life in you most down season the season has changed sooner or later . When you are stuck in the storm you must be able to look back at such times that you did endure and make it out of. We can not be pitiful people and stay stuck In this place of pity because God never promised us a perfect life but he has given us ALL we need to endure and persevere . If we are not utilizing what he has given us and working the tools to build ourselves than change can not and will not occur. If you are not doing the work it takes to build yourself up than you are allowing the enemy to continue to tear you down this is on you not God. When our guilt or shame or self pity turn into condemnation than it is of the enemy the devil who comes to kill steal and destroy . He is as a roaring lion seeking whom he can devour and he waits for an opportunistic approach to speak to your inner man or woman. He comes to steal your joy your peace and if allowed even your hope.
  The problem comes when we do not agree with the way God works and it does not align up with the particular way we would do it or would have done it. We would always choose the easy way and than there is nothing that is produced in the process such as perseverance or character. Faith and hope should not be dependent upon situations or circumstances . Faith is the very basis for hope and the character of God can and should be revealed through faith and hope not putting God on trial. Sometimes we never really know the area of our lives that are weak until the weakness is tested. Do not fix your eyes upon the situation or circumstances but fix your eyes , your hope and your faith upon the one that will pull you through because he has assured us that this life is meant to be lived with God not apart from him and he knows what it takes to bring us closer to himself . His plans are to prosper you not harm you ,the lessons of this life teaches and nourishes and prospers you and conforms you closer to the image of Christ. I find more torment trying to figure out why instead of the how can I allow God to mold me through this situation and circumstance. Stop asking why and start trusting Gods plan that is in motion and you will be able to get on with your life.

Do you really know just how important your life is ? Because you are very valuable to this world and you are here for a reason. There are things God has prepared for us and if you are not doing the work that it takes to be used by God than what are you doing with your life ?This life is going to bring so much turmoil your way and those who are dressed in the full armor of God will greatly withstand the chances of taking a defeat in one way or another. Do you feel as if you have an unlimited amount of time to do all of the things that you want to accomplish ? We can be fixated on ourselves and choose to only be concerned about us and what we want and what we want out of life and in the end this chase produces only more and more want. God put us here for His purpose not our own. If you are to busy living life on your own terms you will be busy doing a whole lot of nothing. God is not an if God. I'll do this if ,if you do this than , if you allow this for me than. We do not get to set the terms God does. We are accountable for what we know about God and the messages he has given to us and when we do nothing with the information he continues to feed us than the same tired old lifestyle we be indulged. It is time to get completely serious about this precious gift of life given to us and that which Christ died for us to live because there is so much to be done for him and for others. Stop ignoring the truth that God is revealing to you on a daily basis. There are to many ignorant years in our lives ,some get it and stop living ignorant lives while others do not get it and continue to dismiss the truth choosing to live in stagnation. This life is all about choices and they all lead down different roads and they all have consequences good and bad and even ugly. Ask another question for yourself
Is God of importance in your life ? How important is God in your life because your lifestyle and your representation of Christ will prove to everyone around you as well as to yourself if he is important. The time is now to act on what God has placed in your heart because tomorrow morning s not promised.

What have I spiritually accomplished this year ? Growing spiritually means to no longer deny the truth that is constantly being revealed to me but embracing it and dealing with the truth. When Christ abides in you than change not only will occur it must . You can not carry the same old attitude into this new year. Christ is to work in me and through me but if I do not allow him to do his work than nothing will be accomplished. If I am selfish there is no room for God to work. Selfishness really means  -to be in God's - way because God is truly selfless. What has been born in me this year ? I m allowing Christ to be born in me . The holy spirit is constantly moving and speaking but as long as I do not follow the lead than I am only having a form of Godliness but denying it's power. There are surface Christians that do not allow the word of God to be Born in you and birth actions. Do not put Christ out of your life and wonder why you are unfruitful in your life . In order to be fruitful you must be connected to the vine the tree of life which is Christ and it is the only way to be fruitful.

Be strong in the lord and the power of his might. In order to utilize the strength needed to navigate this life it must be found In Christ. Everyone has weaknesses and you should be working on your weaknesses through Christ to strengthen your weaknesses. The truth of the matter is your weaknesses are made perfect through God's strength. The things you think are your biggest downfalls are actually the things God wants to use to display his glory through. It takes consistence and persistence so that you can build spiritual muscle.

Hos 4:6
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
because you have rejected knowledge,
I reject you from being a priest to me.

Now a days people reject the knowledge God has placed before them. People now a days pick and choose what they want to obey and what they will reject a. Now a days people have become liberal towards the bible. God has people in your life for a reason , God has people in your life and it is not about whether you like them or not but because you need them to be in your life. People have even stopped going to church for whatever reason they have justified in their own minds. God says if anyone among you is sick he should call on the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint their head with oil. The word warns of the rejection of knowledge and how it will destroy a person. You can obtain all the knowledge in the world but if there is no application of the knowledge you are wasting your time. God's word is inspired and it leads and guides us. If you do not know God and are not willing to obey his word how than will you teach your children ? There is one thing about God ,right is always right and wrong is always wrong. So many people miss out on the knowledge God is providing for them because they are lazy , they miss the knowledge because they are late to church or miss the sermon completely. Satan is having a field day by convincing people they do not need to hear the sermon therefore keeping the wisdom and knowledge that will come across the pulpit from them. People say the word of God is not being preached in the church buildings ,so what they are really saying is God is not working through his people he has called . God can even work through man in spite of his or her failings. No man is perfect and no man is beyond failing and yet people reject people God has called to deliver the message to the people. Nothing has changed sense the time of Jesus ,people rejected the prophets and the people God chose to speak through just as people are doing today. Explain to me Christian that the letters/books in the bible where written to churches and yet society is rejecting going to the very place the bible was written to. You have to train yourself and discipline yourself to be holy. Godliness brings about a change in your life that brings balance in your life . Having a form of Godliness and denying its power will destroy your life. Living out Godliness with protect you spiritually, physically, mentally, and even financially. You have never made horrible choices exhibiting Godliness. You are always at a disadvantage when you are not utilizing Godliness. Realize that the lack of spiritual muscle is the reason for many physical sicknesses found in people today. You are going to go through a lot of things in this life but if you are spiritually fit when these things happen it will knock you down but not out. Handle your peaks and your valleys the same because they are both just temporary. Spectators in life always fall apart when it's time to get in the game of life , they do not have what it takes to play because they have not been a participate in the training strength and conditioning it takes to go through life's hardships successfully. God tells you to put the full armor of God on it does not say he is going to dress you.
Train yourself to be Godly do not expect to go through life with no discipline and expect to have what others have in the form of discipline and Godliness. It takes daily discipline and a continuous self inventory to help you determine your weaknesses and a spiritual fortitude to be able to be successful at overcoming all of the situations and circumstances life brings. Life is going to happen and it is coming whether you are prepared for it or not this should tell you that you will have to consistently be doing the work so when life does happen you are conditioned to handle it.

Spiritual warfare is taken to lightly . If you are not training to be spiritually fit on a day to day basis you will not be prepared to fight the spiritual war . You will have a very hard time getting to where you need to be if you are not spiritually fit. If you do not commit to spiritual training you will not be able to stand when it is time to stand. There has to be a balance in your life in all areas of your life. If you spend all your time in one or 2 areas than another area of your life will become weak. If you are physically fit and emotionally fit but not spiritually fit the weak area would be your spiritual .If you are physically fit and are not mentally fit you are weak in an area of your life that needs strengthened , but if you are balanced in all of the areas meaning physically, mentally,spiritually, emotionally you will not be weak in any one area. You have to be willing to seek out knowledge and for those that do not seek out the knowledge they will ultimately parish. There are those that seek out knowledge and apply it and will not be destroyed in their life. There are people that get the knowledge but reject it and they will be destroyed in many areas of their life. People are forsaking knowledge , leaning to their own understanding. You have to have spiritual growth in your life consistently .In order to have spiritual growth consistently you will have to be consistent in your training. Discipline in your life is a must if you plan to achieve in your life. If you forsake assembling yourself with other believers you are forsaking knowledge. Many people are under the impression that they do not need to go to church in order to grow , but the word of God says you are to not forsake assembling yourself with other believers. Many think they have justified their thinking for not going to church because what is being taught is not of God but the reality is God works in spite of man and his failings. The word of God plainly says that the preacher is sent so those can hear. If you are not going to hear the word of God preached how then will you not lean not to your own understanding ? The preacher is sent to bring the good news.
It is not that you can not read the word for yourself and grow but ask yourself why the word of God says this in Romans

14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

Going to church for the spectacle or to be fake is worthless. You go to the church building is to hear the message and to hear what the preacher is saying so that what he is saying can speak to your spirit giving you the knowledge needed in your spiritual walk. There are a lot of things wrong with the church but it does not dismiss the need to attend in order to hear the message. The real reason many do not attend church is because they are lazy weak jelly legged Christians. There are churches that do not teach the word of God in the manner in which you think it should be taught and is used as justification not to attend. The word of God does not return void. Even if the preacher is not preaching correctly you should discern this and the spirit will prompt you to leave and seek out someone who speaks the truth. The spirit will always lead and guide you if you do not shut it down and quench the spirit . I understand that you are the church and we attend a church building but this does not negate the need to attend . You will miss the opportunity to be a light in others lives that are depending on you to be at their crossroads. Satan has so deceived the people they have chosen to forsake assembling themselves together . These people usually think they have all the answers and do not need church and yet are usually the most out if shape physically, mentally, spiritually. If you are broken down you will focus on your desires. If you are trained and conditioned you will be injured sooner or later by life's situations and circumstances but you will be able to stand because of your training. No matter what situation your situation is in you still have a job to do and your performance should be determined on what God can do through you not based on your own strength.

Who rules your life ?

Satan wants to rule over your life ,the word rule over every aspect of your life.
Definition
Rule:
exercise ultimate power or authority over (an area and its people)

1John5:19 Says the whole world lies under the influence of the wicked one. So ask yourself if you are children of God and the world is influenced by the evil one Satan than who is in control of your life ? If you are being ruled and influenced by the world and not exercising the power and authority God is given unto you than ask yourself if you truly are a child of God?
Look at the world and the system that is set up around you. You have some of the highest paid people that make millions playing a game football,basketball, baseball and yet we have starving people and war veterans that have sacrificed everything and yet are homeless now ask yourself who is behind this ? There is an enemy that is ruling over this world .There are things on TV today that we could never of imagined being on TV ,who is behind this ? You can barley watch a hamburger commercial without a half naked person somewhere throughout the add. Most of the time you can not even tell what is being sold until the last minute in a commercial.
The greed of people is out of control. If the system God set up and his commandments where followed than there would be no starving people in the world,no one would be in need of basic necessities because you would treat everyone the way you would want to be treated.
The ruler of this world is trying to set up dominion through as many worldly means as possible. Satan has weapons to rule your life to rule your relationships . The best way to rule over a person is to never allow a person to understand who they are and who they can be. Satan uses these weapons to rule over people ,power,lust, ambition,greed, lies, all of these and plenty more he uses to keep you from becoming who and what God is calling you to be. How many people are left behind and struck down by any one of these ?
People have gifts talents and abilities that are used to glorify themselves and when this occurs you are glorifying the father of lies Satan the ruler of this world. God gives these gifts talents and abilities to glorify himself and his kingdom. Matthew 12:26 (NIV) 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? This passage tells us Satan has his own kingdom. Satan wants to mimic everything God does with evil intentions.
Matthew 12:30
“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.
There is no gray area ,you are either building the kingdom of God or being ruled over by Satan being used to destroy Gods kingdom and are an instrument used by Satan to build his kingdom.
Satan is not walking around with a pitchfork with a tale and horns. Satan is on your jobs working in and through people ,Satan is Delila ,Satan is Bathsheba, He is that beautiful co worker who is deceptively trying to rule/ruin your marriage. Satan is found trying to rule in all areas of your life and the question is are you aware and what are you doing about it ? You have to respond to these adverse forces with the power of Christ.
Look at children these days in the schools and the only power that was able to subdue the wickedness In these schools the world has driven out , and that is Christ.
Look around and you can plainly see that Satan is the ruler of this world. The word of God tells us all about what has happened what will happen and why these things are happening so there I no excuse for being shocked at what you hear and see. It is up to you to protect yourself and your family through the power and blood of Jesus Christ.

so true.

once while i was condemning god for all the bad things that had happened to me, demanding to know why he let them happen to me, i heard a clear voice answer calmly...

"you were the one who wanted proof. haven't you had enough yet?
what will it take to convince you the devil is real. the enemy is more powerful than you, but i am more powerful than him. you need my help to beat and defeat him. all you have to do is ask."

i asked.
god helped.
we won.

(notes) FEAR
This can change your life
if you get this message
4/16/2015

Definition of Fear:
Fear is an emotion induced by a threat perceived by living entities, which causes a change in brain and organ function and ultimately a change in behavior, such as running away, hiding or freezing from traumatic events.
An emotion experienced in anticipation of some specific pain or danger (usually accompanied by a desire to flee or fight)
syn : fear, fearfulness, fright
ant : fearlessness

Do not live in fear and stay locked up because of fear. Fear allows you to live a life of imprisonment. Fear keeps you from helping other people because you are not available to or for them because you have not overcome your own fears. Fear is something you can perceive but in reality there is nothing to fear to begin with but you have allowed your perception to become your reality.
Fear is a distortion of the truth. Fear blinds your ability to see clearly and will cause you to flee when you should make a stand. How many times has fear kept you from fulfilling your destiny ? You will never fulfill your destiny living in fear because fear detours you towards mediocrity. Everyone can be further along in this life if they would first acknowledge their fears and than confess them ,speak them out and most importantly confronting their fear .
The more you confront your fear the closer you are to exposing its lie of deception. The more you confront your fear the closer you become to the reality of fears deception and closer to freedom from fears paralyzing power. Do not allow the fear of the unknown to keep you bound because you are not in control. You have to ask yourself if the word of God says - God did not put the spirit of fear in man than ask yourself where does this spirit come from ?
2 Timothy 1:7
7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us Power, love and self-discipline.

This tells us that the spirit that God gives us is of Power and Might .Anytime you are living in fear than you are living outside of Gods spirit. Look intently into the mirror and confront the fear you allow to shackle you. If you take the spirit of God with you, you will have self control and not bow down to fear. Look at your life and see how many times you have passed up opportunities to be great because of fear. Where did you pick up fear up from ? You where not created to bow down to fear , look at your past and figure out where you adopted fear from. People implant fear usually in others at a young age .
Fear is completely and utterly against faith and it takes the power of faith to overcome fear. Strengthen your faith and you will overcome fear. Faith cuts off the supply to fear. The fear that comes from the enemy is tormenting. If you are not working in your life and on your life your all talk it takes action to accompany the talk in order to overcome obstacles. There are those that have fear but do not acknowledge it .
Some people live in the fear of the mirror Others put in front of them. Do not allow others to be your fearful mirror instead reject it and be who you meant to be. Fear is a distortion of the truth but the truth that comes from the word of God will restore truth to its rightfully place. If you perceive fear to be truth in your life you will live this out and never obtain and live out a life of victory. In order to defeat fear you will have to let go of fears and in exchange for God's. Isaiah 41:13 For I the LORD your God will hold your right hand, saying to you, Fear not; I will help you.

The word of God challenges fear by trusting in God. Look at a few scriptures that tell you has to deal with fear.

Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do to me.
-----
Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you;do not be dismayed, for I am your God I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
------
Deuteronomy 31:6
6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
------
Psalm 27:1
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid?

Telling God that he knows your heart does not excuse you from sin. God wants to change your heart to the point that you will not compromise his morals and principals. When you are asked if you are living in sin you will not deal with the things that are at the for front of your life because you have a standard of sin that is acceptable to you. You peoples acceptable sin is not acceptable to God sex outside of marriage which is formication, lying,gossiping,back biting,laziness, obesity just to name a few . You will not be honest with yourself therefore it will never be addressed because you can not work on anything that you will not bring into the light. If you are not going to be honest than God can not work within dishonesty . God only deals with truth. How can you work on anything you are choosing to hide ? The answer is you can not . You can live a righteous life but only in the power of Gods might not on your own strength. Through Christ you can achieve a higher standard of life but when you step outside of Christ there is no power there is no might. You ate called to live a life for Christ and are called to a life of servitude .You are supposed to live to serve not to be served. You will always live a life for self when you choose to live apart from Christ. You will live a selfless life when you choose to live within the confines of Christ love. God gives us everything we need to live a life of of abundance .God provides the people to help us get to the next level and he provides his written word to lead and guide you to a path of righteousness. If you listen to the word of God and the people God uses to aide you along the journey of life you will inevitably L he out God's plan for your life. You can not be afraid to address real life issues or they will continue to address you in a negative way. Only the power of the holy spirit can train you in the discipline it takes to live the Christian life. If you call on the power of Christ sincerely you will find it . It is a choice to live apart from God and to live beneath your means. You have to get to the point in your life that you stop allowing excuses to govern your life and choose to expel excuses ,never allowing them to hold you hostage from growth. Excuses will never allow you to grow because excuses keep you bound to the same spot in life. Ask yourself what lies have you allowed to govern your life and keep you from growing ? The moment that you choose to stop living in denial and choose to walk in the truth is the moment growth begins. To put on the full armor of God is to dress in Gods power strength and might. You have to understand life is going to have plenty of hurts but God will enable you to fight through the hurts. Satan is to sharp,fast,and strong for you to beat him by yourself. Satan has to many tricks ,schemes and manipulations to be able to go up against him without the assistance of almighty God.

-INTEGRITY-

Integrity is a reflection of your actions. Integrity is something that can cause you to loose or gain. Emotion will compromise but integrity will not allow you to comprise. Integrity is a path to success if you stay on its path. Integrity is being honest and having strong moral principals. You have to first commit to honesty in order to have integrity. If you are not honest than integrity will never be able to take root. Having moral principals in the society that we live in that is throwing morals and principals away is very difficult but if you walk in integrity you will be able to uphold morals and principals. God has set in place the morals and principals that we have ,without God their is no standard of morals or principals. The reason you know there is such a thing as morals and principals is because God has seared this into our conscious as well as written them on our hearts. Take inventory of your honesty,morals and principals and your integrity. Do not just hear this but actually do this and find out where you are in these areas and do the work necessary to address these deeply rooted issues. You can get to caught up in the fact that God forgives you that you forget God is still going to judge you ,therefore you live to loosely. Ask yourself are you motivated enough by the gospel to live it out ? There is a reward for living the way God would have you to live. The reward is greater than the sacrifice and we are called to sacrifice .Christians that focus on the goal and the prize do not stop until they obtain it because it is not optional. God challenges everyone to live a life of integrity and to have strong moral ethics. Everything starts with honesty and truth because apart from it you have only excuses and denial. Your journey has to become more important than your current struggles. God is willing and able to assist you through the power and might of the holy spirit to live a righteous life. There is a struggle within all of us .The spirit is always willing to live a life with integrity,high moral principals and to live a life of righteousness but the flesh is weak meaning "self". Living a life within the realm of the flesh and ignoring the leading and guidance of the holy spirit will always end in turmoil. It is a fight to live in the spirit because "self" wants to do the complete opposite of the spirit. Paul talks about the war going on in the members of his bodies and this is the same conflict found within every man woman and child.
Rom 7:15-25
15 For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. 16 Now if I do what I do not want, I agree with the law, that it is good. 17 So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.
21 So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. 22 For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23 but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.
