Principles

YHWH


The God of creation has a set of principles that if you follow them,
good things happen !!!
If you choose to not follow them,
bad things happen that make headline news!!!

It’s a pretty simple concept
& you don’t even have to believe in Him for them to work.

Don’t blame the tools that evil people use to carry out acts of evil,
it’s a heart issue that can only be cured by the original plan for all of us.
& it is found in the manual for life.

If you choose to give God the credit for life AND follow His principles,
then you tap into a power that raises the dead,
gives sight to the blind & fills you with an inner peace
that can’t be taken from you.!!!

I did NOT say follow the rules and man-made regulations of religious obligations
that keep you just as lost & defeated as slavery.

There is a tremendous difference

A “Jesus” Of Your Own Making

     A "Jesus" of your own making
     Some worship, praise, & even preach passionately about Jesus… Or “a” Jesus that they choose to fabricate in their own mind. A loving, caring, accepting Jesus no less, but is it the one described in scripture, or not?
Would a parent that let their kids just do whatever they want whenever they want, be a good “loving“, caring, or accepting parent? Or would they be an enabler to their own children’s demise?
 
Let your common sense answer that question.
 
When was the last time you saw an unruly brat in the store throwing a tantrum with the parent standing there doing nothing? What went through your head? Probably that you wish that they would discipline the little problem child… & tell the kid “No”??… Watch out!!… Step back & watch the attitude fly with a fire ball of no self control, followed by a list of gimme gimme gimme.
 
You can definitely tell the difference between a child that has been trained in discipline and one that has not.
 
The trouble in the undisciplined child is that they don’t know they aren’t disciplined because they continue to be led by their human instincts.
 
Right or wrong?
 
(The adult version would be “I am who I am” “I do what I do” “I want what I want”)
 
All the while defending their selfish one sided, all about me, Jesus. With a, “He accepts me for who I am” come back.
Which is true to a point…
That is where the real Jesus comes into the picture, & separates true from false converts. He does love us for who we are,…
 
But,… He does not want us to stay there.
 
He wants us to submit to His will. (Which the selfish attitude wants nothing to do with). He wants obedience which demands a change of life.
 
Including behavior, attitude, outlook, actions… Etc.
 
If there is NO change in your life then you are in a selfish relationship with a self replicated Jesus of your own making. (Un-disciplined) Which in turn causes people that don’t believe to continue not believing simply because they see, in you, exactly what they are doing themselves,
 
& why would they need a weak deity that has
no power to change it’s own creation?
 
     If you were in a “relationship” with someone that only wanted you when it was convenient for them, didn’t care what you thought about anything & demanded that you love them & stay with them just because they wanted to use you for whatever they could get out of you, and how dare you want any different… How long would you stay?
 
A REAL relationship with the TRUE Jesus results in a CHANGE of heart, ultimately leading to a changed life, when you submit to His ways.
 
If you never change year after year,
that should cause you to question your beliefs.
Don’t be deceived into thinking that the change you see in yourself is a result of salvation, if that Change only involves a deeper trust in your selfishness. That you continue to be more & more comfortable with your fabricated, self saving, personal Jesus that you keep on a tight dog collar, & in a box when you have no use for Him to actually make a difference in your life.
If you weighed 87 lbs. skinnier than a rail but hung out in the gym, all the while boasting about how much of a body builder you are, how many converts do you think you’d pull in to your routine? Sure you’ll get your occasional followers that hang around your un-physical advertisement in, no impact body building, giving you your much needed insecure reassurance as you reciprocate the “feel good about me” club.
 
Claiming status without the necessary work involved is appealing,
but still, simply, just a claim.
 
TRUE status takes work, pain, discipline, dedication, commitment in whatever it takes, (not whatever is convenient) .. Etc.
 
1 John 2:3-5
And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him:
 
So ask yourself, what happens IF you DON’T keep His commandments?
 
John 14:21
He that has my commandments, and keeps them, it is he that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
 
Does the perpetual grace you envelope yourself in give you license to go against Gods word & continue claiming a sinless existence?
 
Romans 6:14-18 14
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace. 15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16 Don‘t you know, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, you are servants to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18 Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.
 
So if you continue to just “do what you do” and claim you are under grace, you are deceiving yourself because your choice to continue is the choice “of sin unto death”.
You must chose obedience unto righteousness and when you fail at times you are under grace.
There is work involved, and in that “work” your salvation is displayed. Not salvation “BY” works, Your works are a result of your salvation.
 
Philippians 2:12
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
 
Don’t, also, get pulled into the belief that a frivolous head knowledge of an existence of a god will bring you salvation. Belief, without trusting in that belief, and a, commitment to that belief, is No belief at all.
 
A head knowledge of a functioning parachute involves no action or commitment, and you don’t truly believe until you make it a part of you and trust your life to it.
A belief in a parachute is only validated when you strap it on and jump.

Place Your Trust In The Truth

If you haven’t put your trust in the God of Heaven, please, stop passing the road signs, that leave you without excuse, the death you will be escaping from will be your own.
Stop believing in the universe and start believing in the power that created the universe. The intelligence that it took to create everything and put the breath of life into motion is the God of Heaven, the God that planned your beginning and your end.
The Heaven you can get to by invitation only & not because you’re good enough.
In between the beginning and the end there is a choice, the choice to believe that your own “goodness” will never be good enough, that God provided your goodness for you. That goodness or righteousness, which is the Son of God, came in the flesh to be one of us, to relate to us, and to die for us. Taking the punishment of sin for us. The sin of believing that we don’t have to believe in the one who made us, that sustains us, & gives us breath.
Resurrected from death by the power of God that destroyed the one that had the power of death over us.
The one who loves us enough to build an entire world around us and offer us Life.
To set us free from the bondage of our own self existence and our limited human abilities. The one who, as soon as you accept His sacrifice and believe in His Son as your “being good enough” to make it to heaven, will then never leave you or forsake you for the rest of your days.

The Conscience Deception

Subsequent Consequential Disbelief

The big deception is that certain people don’t want to believe in God, because if they did believe, they would have to follow a “list of dos and don’ts”, so to speak, to make it to a place called heaven.
In their head, they want to do what they do without a conscience, so they, in turn, discredit the existence of God, forcing their own conscience to deny Him, so they can accomplish this without guilt. Knowing that if they choose to believe in God and not follow those “rules and regulations”, that they would ultimately end up in a place called hell. They ponder that consequence, therefore, conclusively don’t want to end up in that place, so they somehow justify, that if they choose not to believe in God, He will then automatically disappear from existence, rendering their belief, that they, now, won’t end up there. In essence, ending up there inadvertently, anyway.
The twisted way of this deceptive thinking, in and of itself, IS the big deception.

 Statistically, You have a 25% chance to make it to Heaven. (if each category were equal)

1).    John 3;16 + “By Believing 100%” you:

  • Seek first the Kingdom of God.
  • Love the Lord thy God with all your heart, mind, and soul.
  • Accept His Son’s sacrificial death on your behalf as the only way to your justifiable salvation.
  • Keep His commandments. (proof that you love Him)
  • Live by His standards. (as a result of you loving Him through your “good works“)

2).    Believe in (g)od or other (g)ods; 1

  • With a false, man made belief, that says that you can have a mere thought, attached to an empty meaning, that, consequentially, is not the solid, actual belief that demands action to proof it, making that belief real, as defined, in the original meaning of the word, written in the scriptures.
  • A mindset that renders a belief that has no substance, and behavior that is no different than the world system that you are supposed to be in opposition with. (in but not of)
  • A result of a false conversion or to be self-reliant on your salvation through your own form of good works.
  • Deceiving yourself into believing you are a “good person”, therefore God will understand and let me into heaven on my own merit.

3).    Believe in (g)od or other (g)ods; 2

  • Believe in the wrong god of this world, satan, devil, & go in the complete opposite direction altogether. Devil worship, occult involvement, evolution, etc.

4).    Don’t believe in anything.

  • You choose to claim ignorance on the existence of anything, heaven or hell, God or Satan, good or evil, everything is relative. Atheism.

I believe this is why Jesus said that only a few will find the narrow pathway that leads to life. & Depart from Me, I never knew you, when you stand at the gates of Heaven trying to get in because of your, self-defined “good works”. There is only one way, truth, and life and only one way to the Father and that is through the Son.

Change the World

     No amount of rebellion, resistance, or protest will ever change the entire world. It may change little bits and pieces of it here and there, just like pruning a tree will change the outside appearance of the branches/leaves, and only temporarily at that.
If you really want to make a global difference, then you have to go directly to the root of the problem. Again, like a diseased tree, if you restore health to the root system, then the entire tree will thrive.

One of California’s biggest and most damaging forest fires that devastated thousands & thousands of acres, homes and lives, back in 2003, was started by a tiny flame no bigger than your pinky fingernail, by a desperate, lost hunter in the woods in search of rescue. Very dry, hot weather conditions coupled with high winds made the fire tear through the heavily wooded, as well as populated areas, taking out whatever was in it’s path at a rate of about three football fields per second.
With a comparison to the unseen side of life, there is a force much more powerful then any windstorm or fire that can be generated here on planet earth. That is the Holy Spirit of God Himself, which is referred to in the Holy Scriptures as a form of wind that no one knows where it comes from or where it goes.
Desperation of freedom to a lost and dry soul, also coupled with the wind of the Holy Spirit can rip through the world with a much needed quenching to the soul, as would a downpour of a torrential rain to a very dry and parched landscape.
Evil and corruption stem from the selfish greed of a man’s heart, so by rebelling or protesting to change a few rules that corruption has put into force, you are only returning the ball in a game that will exhaust you by continuing to fight against that force, and will not stop until their selfish agenda will prove supreme.
In its stead, rather, go after the man’s heart with righteousness and love, compassion and selflessness. This too will also prove to be nothing more than a game if you do not include the powerful wind of the Holy Spirit to push it along. If the wind did not exist in that California fire, it would have died out long before. However, with the aid of the wind, it made that fire impossible to stop until it took its course.

We, in turn, have to be that desperate soul, lost in a forest of evil and corruption, longing for rescue. Therefore, instead of getting angry with what is happening in the world and trying to change, (in vein), the rules. Focus on the hearts of man, that make those rules, by starting the fire of truth, pointed out by Scripture, and let the wind of the Holy Spirit spread that fire with the force that only He can do.

Do not be the “form” of Godliness, by denying the power force that drives it, and try to do it on your own.

Trust, Lean, not on your own understanding, and have faith.
We all have heard the saying, in one form or another, that the only thing needed to advance the ranks of corruption or evil, as fast as it does, is that the voice of righteousness remains silent. So remain silent no more, stop being a willing party in advancing the voice of evil.

Fact is, that if you do and say nothing, inadvertently, you are contributing to the spread of evil.

Stop complaining about the rampant misguided souls in the world if you do not have a part in opening your mouth and letting the truth be heard.
Stop going to church every week and claiming to be a loving CHRISTian, and Do nothing the rest of the week, except, of course, to advance your own kingdom.
The kingdom of your favorite sports team,
the kingdom of your daily soap operas,
the kingdom of your worthless earthly collections,
(If it can burn, rust, corrode, melt, decompose, rot, crumble) etc.
It Is Worthless in the backdrop of eternity.
Replace your earthly goals of vapor with the Rock solid eternal goals of advancing the Kingdom of Heaven. Get off the couch, fade the TV screen to black, and go tell someone about the good news that someone, so graciously told you of at some point in your life. There is plenty of Heaven to go around, do not be a hoarder and keep it all to yourself.

Store up treasures in Heaven, not here on earth, eternal, not temporal.
The Kingdom of Heaven, Not a church building or your choice of religion.
A relationship with the God of the universe, His Son, and Spirit, Not a meeting with your church leaders or coffee hour in your church café.
How much you give up to God, and Not how much you put in the collection plate.
Examine yourself, nobody else knows what is deep in your soul.
Purge the corruption from your own heart before you go on a quest to point the finger of your own self-righteous deeds.
Stop playing Christian, by trudging a rut between your front door and your favorite pew. Study to show yourself approved. Then you can rightly divide and spread the true gospel and not the false interpreted, hear say that has been passed down by self-righteousness, driven by personal feelings, and not by the truth of scripture.
Stop thinking that it is everyone else’s job to do what you were called to do when you, voluntarily, accepted the right to be a child of God, because by doing so you were, in fact, commanded to spread the gospel that you believe to be the ultimate truth.
Now,… Prove that you Believe.

ATTITUDE

“Try or Do”

As much as we would all like to believe that “we are what we are“, it really only boils down to your outlook, and the attitude you choose to display about the events that unfold in your little corner of the globe, and virtually nothing to do with the actual circumstances that may arise. I know full well how the everyday pounding of the circumstantial waves of life can drive you to believe that life is all about the sufferings, much less, any purpose for  it all. But there is a little secret that if or when you find it will “set you free” both inside and out.
Have you ever stopped to wonder why, something identical can happen in two separate lives and, in that, have two completely different responses? One is negative and the other positive…  If you ponder that fact alone, you can’t help but come to the conclusion that it can’t be the circumstance, (because that was identical) and it has to be the way someone chooses to respond to any given event. (because that was the only difference) Some will argue that, “that is just the way I am”, but a reaction never defines the person, it is merely a habitual reaction to what has been taught due to watching someone else perform the same behavior. Usually upbringing by parents or a heavy influence by pears, etc. However, just like anything can be learned by a desire to do so, something that was inadvertently taught, can also be UN-taught, if you will, and re-taught correctly to function properly within the guidelines of a healthy behavior pattern.

Each new day brings fresh ideas, opportunities, choices, and a drive to become better then you were yesterday, And as crazy as it seems to be, it really and truly only boils down to the way YOU CHOOSE, to respond or react to anything life gives you on a daily basis. It might take a little time, depending on how routed you are in your behavior patterns, but you CAN strive to change into the positive person you CAN be IF you set your mind like bedrock and throw away the word “try” and replace it with “do”.
You very rarely succeed at anything if you “try“, but your chances of success increase exponentially if you set out to “do” instead.
In other words, make it a lifestyle.

Are You the Solution or the Problem?

Concerning any and all relational structures.

The Problem:
Thinking that you are better then everyone and not including yourself in this because you are above correction.
Bullying, Back biting, Put Downs , Usually followed by Elevating yourself to unrealistic levels of narcissistic  perfection, Thinking “your” problems, mistakes, faults and shortcomings are somehow better then  or exempt from everyone else, Name Calling, Venomous Sarcasm, Any words that cause hurt feelings, Resentfulness, A drive for retaliation, etc., Arrogant Self-righteousness, and the like. I could go on, and probably write a book on the continuation of similar issues, but with any bit of common sense, I’m sure everyone can continue with there own words to add to this list.
Now read through the list again and honestly admit which ones you have violated. If it is not easy for you to point out your own faults just point your finger at someone else while you do it and after your done, replace them with your own reflection in the mirror, because, even though you may not have made the same mistakes or have the same faults as someone else, that DOES NOT mean that your mistakes or faults are in any way, shape or form better then or less impacting then others.
Problems don’t necessarily always have to be that, in your face, straight forward but can be subtle and  inward also. For instance:  Stemming from low self esteem, you  jump to conclusions, spread rumors, think that someone is “doing” or “not doing” something on purpose, either “to or against” you, reading more into a situation than actually is there, remaining neutral and playing both sides of the fence, the list can go for days on this side of the coin also. The common denominator in these examples are, In Fact, that there are NO Facts to back them up, and nobody has lifted a finger to prove there assumptions are, either true or false. If you choose to remain silent, and non responsive to the fact that, if you are, in any way, part of the problem, then you are still, inadvertently, part of the problem & until you admit it and correct it, you will remain to be part of the problem. If you know, for a fact, that something or someone is wrong and do not do, or say anything to make it right, or at least make an attempt to make it right, then by default, you are, again, inadvertently, part of the problem.

The transitional turning point between the problem and solution, is recognizing that you have been part of the problem and are willing to, consciously, choose to, from now on, be a part of the solution.

The Solution:
Knowing that you are not better then anyone and include yourself on this healing journey to purposely cause positive outcomes, because you are not ever above correction.
Lift up, Compliment, Humility, Admit your own Faults – don‘t point out others, Give to – not Take from,  Self-less-ness, Accepting everyone in spite of faults, not Rejecting because of faults, again, everybody has them, If you don’t know why someone did or said something, Ask. If you heard something about someone, Ask them personally to get the facts before you spread rumors. Don’t spread rumors, Never conclude on issues you know nothing about, Ask. If you want to be invited to stuff,… Invite. If you want to be called,… Call. If you want to be included,… Include…
If you want to add to either list, then feel free to do so. Involve yourself. But think twice before you speak on any given subject, If you cant say anything that is in the list of Solutions then “REMAIN SILENT UNTIL YOU CAN”. No exceptions… We have all learned this from childhood,… Here is the proof,… finish the sentence,… If you can’t say anything nice… Then______________________________________…

The Conclusion:
If YOU choose NOT to be part of the Solution, then YOU ARE a part of the Problem.
If you believe that YOU ARE exempt from this process, then YOU ARE a part of the Problem.
If YOU remain unchanged by these facts, then YOU ARE a part of the Problem.
If you DO NOT involve yourself and “DO” your part to “BE” a part of the Solution, then you DO NOT have any right, at all, to point your finger at anybody for ANY fault you think is worth pointing out. & You do not have a right to complain about anything that is wrong with any other person or relational structure. Period.
DO NOT put down, call names or disrespect ANYBODY, in front of or behind their back. No matter what reason you think you might have to do so.
YOU ARE NOT better than, or above anybody regarding personal mistakes or faults. If you think you are, then you, by definition, are an arrogant, self-righteous, hypocrite, because everybody has both.
If anybody is talking about someone else to YOU, and the person being talked about is NOT present to have a say in the matter, then it is up to YOU to stop the conversation immediately unless what is being talked about is in a positive and/or constructive nature.
You should be sticking up for people, especially family members, that are being talked about… and not being the one talking bad about people, again, especially family members.
Instead of finding reasons to push someone out of your life thru indifference, find reasons to invite someone into your life for the same reason, in the name of diversity. If you do not contact someone or someone does not contact you, Do not assume that you don’t have anything in common. Two, one thousand mile desert roads that run perpendicular to each other, seemingly going in different directions, will eventually cross on a common ground.
Everybody wears a different pair of shoes, so until you have walked in someone’s footsteps, do not assume that you know how or what they think & feel.
If you have no interest in what someone else is saying or doing, do not assume that they have interest in what you say or do. In other words, engage in someone’s life if you want them to engage in yours.
Don’t monopolize your conversations. Open it up to the listening side of things, nobody wants to hear what you have to say All The Time.

Confess & Kneel

The words in the book that God endorsed, HERE or AFTER will be enforced.

If you don’t believe that Hell is real and HERE you refuse to confess and kneel,

I’m sorry to say you’ve sealed your fate because AFTER you die it will be too late.

(But you will still confess and kneel)   That Jesus the Christ is Lord

Isaiah 45: 22-23  / Philippians 2: 6-11

The Narrow Path

NarrowWayWorking day and night, men and women run heavy equipment to clear the landscape of newly discovered toxic waste that has been seeping into the ground for years. No matter how long it takes, the commitment of the workers is critical to the recovery of this populated area the waste has decided to reside in as well. Just how far,  how deep and  how wide does this hazardous waste spread, are the questions workers and residents are running thru their minds… How long will this go on?
Being careful not to remove or damage the existing, unharmed scenery, the workers dig around the areas that have not been contaminated by the unwanted invasion of this poisonous liquid, containing it and making sure it never returns to the landscape again. The goal could take years but the result will be worth far more than the time it took to accomplish it.

As soon as we recognize the toxic poisons that have been seeping in, we need to be committed to removing it from our lives, thoughts and actions. We can’t remove them ourselves or even recognize what they are without going to the one who knows how life is supposed to be lived in the first place. We are swayed by many things that bombard us in our everyday life;…  the worlds point of view, good intentions with bad advice, one sided opinions, influences from our peers, friends and family, you name it, it’s out there. God our father will make the ultimate commitment with you to finish what he has started or will start, but you must be obedient and willing to be committed to His road to recovery and let His demolition team (Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit) come in and do the job right. Removing unnecessary toxic baggage that has collected in your life for many years. Not being without the effects that come from removing poisons that have been attached to you for so long, the body (flesh) WILL fight with everything in it to keep what it has grown use to, even though it is bad for you. Lean on God every step of the way and don’t pull back even though the pain is perceived to be unbearable.
It’s a very challenging pathway , one that reveals unknown broken bones, cuts, bruises, and foreign matter that needs to be cut out, re-opened, stitched up, re-broken and healed the correct way. Gods end result is to conform us to the image of His Son Jesus Christ if we are willing to let Him lead us thru,… The Narrow Path.
