Hi Lovelies, tonight I write to you to warn you not to fall prey to the devourers of Love, Truth, and the family tie that we have as Followers of Jesus, The Christ. No matter the color of our skin, there is a thread that binds us all together as one; and that thread is The Love of Jesus.
In John 17:9-23, Jesus prays the following: “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. 10 And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your Name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are…20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
DISCERNER OF TIMES
Jesus spoke of a time that divisions would come, and in the Garden of Gethsemane notice that He did not pray for unity of blood family, but for all believers (brothers and sisters) in Christ. He prayed for you and me, that we would be one as He and The Father were One. He knew and foretold of a time that extreme hatred and jealousies would come from within the blood ties, “Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law ” Luke 12:53
If we as the body of Christ want to glorify Our Lord, we must not allow the enemy of Truth a foothold.
I GOT YOUR BACK
You know the saying, “I got your back” well I do have yours, do you have mine? These are perilous times and if you are not willing to set aside personal agenda and divisive petty prejudice, get out of the way because judgment begins with the house of The Lord and you will not be pleased when the light shines brightly on your heart for all to see. “For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?” 1 Peter 4:17
Where, but from Hell did this term come? I first heard “Social Gospel” from Senator Barack Obama as he was describing “Rev” Jeremiah Wright and his beliefs. I still do not know what this is supposed to mean but I can tell you this, there is only one Gospel that we who are of The Way must concern ourselves with, and that is the Gospel of Jesus The Christ: Love The Father above all things, and love thy neighbor as thyself. Matthew 22:36-40. “36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” 37 Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Beloved rest assured that we DO NOT serve a Social Progressive God whose Word changes with the shifting of sand, or the lifting of a sword. The Great God Jehovah established His Holy Word thousands of years ago and woe to those who attempt to change its meaning to suit their heart of hate. Hebrews 13:8 tells us that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
James 1:16-18 tells us, “16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. 18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.”
The other night I heard a comment on Hannity & Colmes from Malik Zulu Shabazz, the New leader of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense. His comment rang in my ears as he justified the blasphemous comments spewed by “Rev” Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. mentor and spiritual adviser of Barack Obama. In addition to his standing behind the sermon given by Jeremiah Wright where he stated that G_d is damning America and his repeated use of The Lord G_d’s Name in vain, he went on to say that this is only a reflection and common teaching in the black churches of today. Continuing, he stated, that God is not pleased with America because of the way people of color are treated – – How incredibly arrogant, ignorant, blasphemous, and down right bigamous, and how sad a truth if this is really what is being preached from behind closed doors (BUT, not hidden from the Sight of God).
- My bible clearly states that Our God is not a respecter of persons: “But from those who seemed to be something—whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God shows personal favoritism to no man—for those who seemed to be something added nothing to me” Gal 2:6.
Jesus warns us that what comes from a man’s mouth clearly reveals what is in his heart.
“16 So Jesus said, “Are you also still without understanding? 17 Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. 20 These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man” Matthew 15:16-20.
DEFENDING THE FAITH
Lovelies, I want you to hear and understand, God does not see as a man sees. You look at me and make an instant judgment upon who I am, but my Father looks at me and sees the inner most depths. Jesus sees beyond the outer shell and reads the epistles of the heart.
THINKING MORE HIGHLY THAN ONE OUGHT:
I will leave you with the following scriptures to ponder and then a final Nugget.
“My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality. 2 For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, 3 and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, “You sit here in a good place,” and say to the poor man, “You stand there,” or, “Sit here at my footstool,” 4 have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts?5 Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? 6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts? 7 Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called? 8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; 9 but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. 10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,”also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty. 13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment” James 2:1-13
GUARDING THE FAITH
“20-O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge— 21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you.” 1 Timothy 6:20-21.
IS GOD PLEASED WITH AMERICA?
If God is not pleased with America it is not because of the way any one nationality is treated. If God is not pleased with America, it is not because there are classes of people-rich or poor; for Jesus Himself told us that the poor will always be with us. If God is not pleased with America it is because we have taken His Holy Word and defiled it with the doctrines of man.
RELIGION KILLS AND JESUS HEALS!
