Daily Prompt: Solitary Life of Christ

ALL CHRISTIANS RECOGNIZE EVIL

The Word of God never changes because God never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever!

Keeping it simple:

  • If it Builds up or Lifts up it’s of God.
  • If it destroys or tears down, it is not of God.
  • If it’s the Truth, it’s of God.
  • If it’s a lie or misleads in any way it’s not of God.
  • The Truth of God is built on Rock but
  • Lies are built on sand, shifty as the one who tries to deceive.
  • God does not Force Himself on you.
  • The devil does.
  • God is Freedom.
  • The devil is possession.

If it breaks commandments, it is not of God:

  1. Thou shalt have no other Gods before me.
  2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
  3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
  4. Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it Holy.
  5. Honor thy father and thy mother.
  6. Thou shalt not kill.
  7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
  8. Thou shalt not steal.
  9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
  10. Thou shalt not covet.

The New Testament adds the commandment of Jesus in Matthew 22:37-40:

Jesus said unto him,”Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

I know who you all are now more than ever and am waiting for you to realize what that is before it’s too late for some of you. Do I expect that human beings will ever be perfect? Of course not, but at least try.  God knows your heart so hopefully you have some idea if you are “right with God.”  If you don’t believe in such “nonsense” try to see why you really believe this and what you do believe.

The Ultimate Irony is while the world tries so hard to escape the Word of God, it only serves to prove that Jesus is the Savior of the World by the world becoming more evil the further they stray.

One of my prayers to God is to be more loving and forgiving to myself and others. I remember to include myself because I learned self hate at a very early age. Combine that with the condemnation in the Old Testament, which I admit I seldom read, and you have some real guilt problems with not being “enough.”   We will never be enough for the world or man but we will always be enough for God as long as we care.

Writing 101: Opposite Tuesday

Today’s writing challenge was to writing about my worst fear in a style that is not my own.  Rebel that I am, I refuse to talk of anything that is negative.  Fear makes one weak and I plan on staying strong.  Also I wouldn’t have a clue on how to be someone other than who I was born to be.

Good to know that if you hadn’t asked us to write about something negative, I would be bitching about something.  I guess my fear is that I will become a slave to what I have learned from my life experiences and not a slave to the truth.

Luckily I know better.  I know Jesus.  The thing that I love the most about Him is His human side.  The parts where I heard He cried because He dared to care about a world that didn’t love Him back.  The parts in the New Testament that say He chose to give His life because He loved us anyway.  This is the part that tells me He was not completely human because most of us would do the opposite.  Even though I know Christ, I still don’t want to do things for those that are my enemy.  I will pray for them and not harm them, but I seldom will actually go out of my way to help someone that is against me.  Why would I?  Why would anyone?  We know there is a good chance that the enemy will become strong with this help and destroy us.  This is the way of the world.  The way that Jesus told us was wrong.

I loved the part where He warned us that when the world hates us for walking in love and the light, remember that it hated Him first.  Most of us hate being hated so we are careful how we walk, careful not to rock any boats and provoke our enemies.  I love the part that most forget about and that is the believers will do even greater works than He because He goes to the Father.
