Soulful Sunday – Be Ye Separate!

The world and its customs are changing in ways that frankly disturb my Christian soul upon deep consideration. The differences are coming swiftly lately and it’s clear that few humanly in power are taking stances to draw any lines.

The promotion of soliciting wrongs as right and rights as wrong have reached astronomical portions! Even other countries Have viewed our practices as disgusting as we continue to promote “freedom without ethical boundaries ” it never stops and we are looking like a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah.

In the past several years, drastic alterations to biblical principles that our country was founded on have been completely dismantled. So much that the new generation and those to come are at risk of not even knowing the moral standards we once had ever existed at all.

What’s happening is a very sad state of affairs that grieves my spirit but further solidifies my position in Christ Jesus that I shall not be moved!

Last week I endured a level of offense with my employer that I have never endured in over 25 years of working. Because of recent federal regulations that have changed which trickles down at the individual state level, I am now forced to do a few things that are completely contrary to my Christian moral values. I’ve never been in a position where I feel I have no choice and must compromise for the sake of my livelihood. The very thought of the matter sickens me and I call out to my Abba Father for direction.

He gently reminds me that I’m in this world but not of it. I must operate in my role as unto Him and he will, in due time, make a way of escape for me. He saw this coming long before my experiences. In order to survive, I must keep my eye on Him now more than ever before.

As Christians, today is the day to take a more concrete stance in what we believe in. We live in a country that is “Free” so as the world changes, we shouldn’t if it’s not for the better in our Savior.

Be ye Separate from them!

Don’t find acceptance in the chances!

Represent Christ so that those who dismiss His Will clearly understands whose side you are on! There should be no question or surprise that you are indeed a believer!

Resist the enticing temptations to please the flesh!

Don’t be moved from God’s Word, Will and plans for your life!

Continue to sharpen yourselves with other believers to strengthen your united front!

Do it all by walking in Love for that’s what our Father commands us to do!

All of this is getting more difficult to comprehend as to why this is happening. But we still serve a God who is very much in control and has the end result already worked out!

Until Next Time, Happy Sunday!

Soulful Sunday – Sin Consequence

I am an avid believer that The Heavenly Father is incredibly merciful! There is nothing that compares to His Grace and His Mercy. He’s forgiving, gracious and provides multiple opportunities for each of His children to repent from sin and return to the safety of His arms.

He is well aware that the flesh our spirits live in presents an array of challenges daily! We will all make mistakes, stumble and sometimes fall. Picking ourselves up, turning away from what tempts us and seeking His refuge is what every Believer in the sacrifice of Christ Jesus should do.

However, the enemy has deceived many into becoming content in their premeditated and perpetual acts of sin. This may be in the areas of how we treat others, sexual immorality, adultery, abuse of substances, a repetitive lying tongue, arrogance, pride and so much more. Everyone of us, including myself have been challenged in all these areas at some point in our lives. When I look back over my own life and think about some of the circumstances I put myself in when I knew better and when I didn’t, again, I am overwhelmed by The goodness and protection of The Lord.

As Christians we fool no one, especially not God, when we make a conscious decision by refusing change. We make excuses telling ourselves that we are only human, God will always forgive me, everyone struggles with something and on and on….
It’s true that God will always forgive us but it is also true that He is well aware of the condition of our hearts and how sincere we are when we repent. He also knows if we are truly finished toying with matters that please our flesh but destroys our spirits within.
 

The RealBoldTruth is that the Grace and Mercy of God runs out! How long that takes is unique for each and every one of us but He will eventually let go and turn us over to our reprobated minds.

 In my experience, He won’t do this without countless warnings first. Most of us know that what we do, especially in secret, grieves Him and is subject to destroy our lives. This can’t be more true relative to those fleshly acts we have been engaging in for years! After a time, we convince ourselves that what we do, we simply can’t stop. That’s a lie from the pit of Hell for Christ laying His life down,spilling His blood and giving up the ghost is all the power we need to put ANYTHING under our feet! God leaves the choice up to us whether we want to go from glory to glory.

If we are repetitively engaged in the same sins today as 10 years ago, we have compromised in that state, it’s become easier for us to stay there, and we are in denial, bondage or both. Deliverance is Necessary before Grace and Mercy ends for us!

There are real consequences to be paid if we refuse change. They include but are not all inclusive to losing our families, losing our health, losing our finances, and losing our lives to premature death.

We can continue to play around with this thing indefinitely, or make the choice to get all that God has for us on this side of Heaven. I don’t know about you but I want all The Lord has for me so crucifying my fleshly desires is how I shall live from this day forward.

Until next time, Happy Sunday!
