Lost and Lonely People

Do you ever stop what you are doing and just look around at the people who cross your path?

Those in the grocery stores or driving in their cars; where are they going? Who are they going to see or maybe they are going to empty houses and fill their night with the glaring blue box? Are they dying inside by the loneliness that pierces their hearts? They never open up because they don't know who is "REAL" out there in this lonely world. They think there isn't anyone who would even care if they shared their problems.

They are hurting...They are void....of a True Friend in Jesus Christ!

They are broken....they are lost....they need Jesus Christ, a true friend!

But how can they know this is what they need? How will they realize that Jesus is their answer?


No, not that you become their savior, but you will show them God's kind of Love! You can take a lonely person in your workplace, neighborhood, school, and even church reveal God's love to them.


By being there to pray for them. Being there to listen to their problems without judging. Being there if they are sick? Letting them know that you are a true friend. They will know that you are a person of God because of this Love that you are showing. You won't even need to preach them the gospel. GOD'S LOVE will show them the gospel. They will then want to know about the Gospel and it will be door wide open to teach them the word of God. The love that you showed them disciples their heart in ways you wouldn't even have thought. Only the Love of God tears down walls of division and speaks to the person in his/her inner most part of their heart.

Love is a powerful weapon!

WHY? and HOW?

Because GOD IS LOVE!!

Free in Christ

The Three Little Pigs--Build your house on a Firm Foundation!

Matthew 7:24-25

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

When I was reading this scripture, the fairy tale "The Three Little Pigs" came to mind. 
The story goes as such:  

There were three pigs who were set into the world by their mother.  The little pigs went off into the world and contributed to society and built their home.  One little pig built a house of straw, the second built the house of sticks, and the third (the wiser one) built his house of bricks.  The enemy- THE BIG BAD WOLF, was prowling around looking to see which little pig he could devour.  He was watching and lurking behind trees and bushes.  

One random day the wolf decided to attack and try to devour the pigs.  He came to each of the pig's home, with the weakest foundation being the first attacked--the house of straw.  The wolf and little pigs exchange some words 

 "Little pig, little pig let me in!" (wolf)
  "Not by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin!" (pig)
"Then I huff, and I'll puff, and blow your house down!" (wolf) 

When the wolf blows the house down the first pig runs to his brother's  house with the sticks.  The wolf does the same with the second pig's home, which makes the first and second pig run to their wiser brother's home, the one whose house turns out to be the only one which is adequate to withstand the wolf with the blustery breath. 

So how does this all tie in with Jesus and the firm foundation? 

Simple....if you build your house on the firm foundation of Christ's love, redemption, and His will be hard for the "wolf" to come in and devour those who are grounded with the Word of God.  

When you grasp on to the clear revelation of who Jesus is and what He came to do, there is NOTHING that can overcome you.  Truly, NOTHING!  This is good news.  How can this be, it just seems to good to be true?  There are others who are christians that have been overcome in different ways?  Yes, and if you think back to the story, the other little pigs came from the same home and built their little houses but never were wise enough to build it with a strong foundation. Pigs one and two chose to spend less time "building" to make more time for pleasures of the world.  

Our walk with the Lord isn't a religion or something to take lightly.  No!  It needs to be more important than eating!  More important than watching the News or listening to talk radio!  More important than watching soap operas or your favorite evening TV show!  It is more important than spending hours reading "other" types of reading materials or going out to your clubs.


If Jesus was constantly in the presence of the Father and doing His father's business?  Then how much more do we need to be in meditation or in the presence of the Lord?  No wonder Jesus did amazing miracles!!  Yes, I know He was God in the flesh, but Jesus came as a man (like you and me) and had carnal thoughts (like you and me).  Jesus was our example of what godly men or godly women should do in the Kingdom of God here on earth. He showed us by what He did, how He prayed, how He solved problems, and how He loved.  

Hebrews 2:17

Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.  For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

Being in the word of God teaches us WHO we are as born again believers and to realize what we have and to draw this out by the Spirit of God.  It isn't something we have to ask the Lord to fill us with or gain if we do more good works...NO, WE ALREADY HAVE IT INSIDE OF US!  Our born again spirits have all things pertaining to life and godliness.  

2 Peter 1:3
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Jesus in His love for us warned of the "Big bad wolf".  Told us tribulations and storms would come, and clearly taught for us to build our lives on a firm foundation.  

He says "Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world"

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

1 John 2:14
I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

1 John 5:4
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Being Passionate for the Cross

I know some might be turned off by the post I recently wrote.

Yes, some might be OFFENDED or APPALLED with things I might share.  You might not like how the message is brought forth.  You might share your thoughts in a different way.  You might judge me and maybe you are a judgmental person in general.  You might be a hypocrite.

You might be like me

Passionate for the Church of today!

But you know what!!??  These are my thoughts!  My expressions!

These are:

My expressions of how His love has touched my life.

My expressions of how God has shown love to the most unloved people you can imagine.

My expressions of how Christians today may or may not be hypocrites.

My expressions of sins I might be dealing with in a general sense.

My expressions of how rough life can treat Christians.

My expressions on how I hate the Enemy of our souls.

My expressions of persecutions.

My expressions of stupid doctrines of demons.

My EXPRESSIONS, simply that!


Do I normally walk around with frustrations and in your face preaching as such?  Not usually!  :)

I normally walk in love and never, ever in an offended way.  I am careful how I express myself in "real life.  But these are my deep thoughts!!  My hearts cry!!  Thoughts I would share with close friends.  To my friends I am somewhat controversial....they have told me this.

One of the many reason I don't like to make my person known on this blog is to be able to express everything on here whether be the good, bad, or ugly!  These are my thoughts on my walk with God.


Some might love me and think I have written SOME good stuff.  But who cares!  I am not looking for a pat on the back or people to agree or disagree with me.  I really don't care what people think of me other than I know at the end of the day I was led by the Spirit of the Lord.   God knows my true heart, my true intentions, my love and passion to see the Church walking in the TRUTH of the Gospel.  He loves my genuine heart.  He loves me because I am His child and if I might say things to offend....HE KNOWS ME!

He loved John the Baptist who called people BROOD OF VIPERS.  Luke 3:7

 Then he said to the multitudes that came out to be baptized by him, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Jesus Himself also called the so called "righteous" brood of vipers!   Matthew 12:34

 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

  Not that I am calling anyone a brood of vipers.....Please hear me out!  I'm just saying sometimes the passion that is burning inside comes out in brash ways.

So, if I offended you in anyway...understand my heart.....THIS is my PASSION!  No, NOT to offend.  I am not looking to offend.  But sometimes, the TRUTH and its delivery can hurt .... I know...... I've been hurt, but it made me want more of God.  And a desire to know more of the TRUTH!

 My passion is the WORD OF GOD.
 My passion is JESUS CHRIST!
My passion is the CROSS!
 My passion is the GOSPEL!

I love all people.  I even love those who want to despise me!  I thank you all for your comments and encouraging words.

I say all this in LOVE!!

A Shout Out to All Christians!!


Whom are we to believe??


Lord reveal yourself!!

I know....these are the sorts of questions we ask in our hearts.  Not really understanding who we serve and what we serve.  Yeah, might say you know God, but do you really?    Is it the God of the old testament or the God of the New?  I am sure you all have wondered "who this God is?"  Why is He so mysterious? 

But is He mysterious?  So many people will say,"Oh, the Lord works in mysterious ways" or "We don't know why God took so and so home at 16 yrs of age."  "I guess God is in Control and Sovereign."  "We will never know on this side why these things are happening."  "What ever will be, will be."  "How dare question God!!"  As they say it with a hypocritical look, judging you like you are such a LOSER who has no idea who God is.  

I am sorry but these are lame reasons to not seek the Lord as to why certain things happen.  I, personally, am a big believer in a big God who will speak truths to me and will answer my questions.   I won't relent until I have some sort of answer or peace!!  I am determined to find the answers to the many questions thousands of believers might just think about, but never really search them out.  

Some Christians will settle on the same old response "It must have been God's will!!"  They won't seek any further;  they will stop seeking and continue to live a life where they are hanging on by a thread in this world and not wanting to know more.  

Hello People??!!  Lets be like the fathers of the faith...Abraham, Isaac, Joseph, Jacob (Israel), Moses, Elisha, Elijah, all the Prophets, Paul, John, Peter, and many devoted Christians that have come after.  

Lets stop sitting on our fat behinds, sucking our thumbs and spending endless hours doing absolutely nothing to find out who God really is!!  Lets READ THE WORD people and stop creating our own ideas of who God is!!  Stop living in the natural and live in the supernatura!!  If we are truly Christians then we should be walking in greater works then the Lord Jesus!!

John 14:12

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Why aren't we?  WHY??!!!  Have you ever asked yourself these questions?  Why are we not living like the new testament church?  Are we truly walking in the power of the Holy Spirit?  We have fallen to worship the world and not walking in the power of the Kingdom of the Most High!!  We have decided to walk as lukewarm and live a life of godliness lacking power.  

2 Timothy 3:4-6

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

FOLKS......OPEN YOU EYES....people are dying!!!  Not just spiritually but literally dying of sickness and diseases, tragedies, and we are falling into the trap of believing that God is doing this.  WAKE UP....STOP being so deceived!!  Has the devil blinded you so much that you are believing such LIES??

WHO IS JESUS??  What did He come to do? 

Read the word and find out for yourselves!!  THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND!!  Not just for heaven it is HERE AND NOW so act on it and know that God is Here!!

Healing an enemy!

Luke 22:48-51

But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.
 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

In the midst of  His own personal agony of tears and sweat of blood, He takes time to heal an enemy.  How can this be?  

When Jesus was in the midst of the Garden, just hours from being crucified for the sins of the world, Judas enters the Garden to betray this Man who has done no wrong.  WHAT WRONG HAS HE DONE?  He came healing, preaching forgiveness, and loving those who are unloved.  What is wrong with this?  The Pharisees and Sadducees, the religious thought this was blaspheme.  They thought and said to themselves  how COULD this Man do these things?  He must be from Satan!!  Sadly, there are many who will say these same things today.  

Judas was the biggest enemy Jesus had.  He was deceived, thinking he was doing good.   He didn't like what Jesus was doing.  He hated Jesus.  He hated the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  He betrayed Jesus by coming to those very people who hated Jesus and smelled of pure jealously.  Those who are in darkness hate those who live in the light and those who love with all their hearts.  Imagine the HATE in their hearts.  They were DARK.   Just because Jesus came healing and doing good. 

Jesus' Disciples were ready to strike with the sword and one (Peter) does. He cuts off the ear of Malchus the servant of the High Priest. But wait, what does Jesus turn around and do?   Just think about it.... He is ready to face his death, the cross...But what does He do?  He leans down and HEALS the ear of the one who is persecuting Him.  He takes time to have compassion and love for an enemy.  And because Jesus LOVES so much, what does He do?   HE HEALS.

So my question to you is?  If Jesus took the time to heal the ear of someone who did not believe in Him, how much more will He heal or should I say has healed the Children of God....The ones who love and believe in Him?   He took the time in the midst of His own agony, to heal an ear. 

This is the NATURE of God. This is JESUS!!

Jesus love is so great that  when He died on the cross all those  2000 years ago,  He bore our sicknesses and our diseases.....BY HIS STRIPES we were HEALED.   He has done it and He is waiting for us to receive it!!!!

1 Peter 2:24

 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

So don't come thinking HEALING is not for today.  Don't believe that God's Will is not to heal all.  This proves that God's WILL is for all to be healed.

Thank You Jesus for your blood that was shed for me and all of us.  AMEN!!
