TIME TO WAKE UP

We as Americans is dealing with a national tragedy that in my opinion could have been avoided if we as bible believing people of God stayed on our leaders about getting these guns off our streets. TIME TO WAKE UP! How many more children have to die before we get off our seats of "do nothing" and get our government to do something?

God didn't cause this to happen. No ,God didn't do…

NO LIMITS

Despite how we treated Him Jesus loves us unconditionally (without limits ) so why can't we love and do for each other without limits? This past week the eastern coast was hit by Hurricane Sandy which killed an estimated 91 people . During this ordeal people pulled together like family. What concerns me is that in 24 hour we will go back to the hating, backbiting ,being disobedient ,and being an unloving nation.  God has no limits on his love for us so let's not limit our love for…

STICKS AND STONES

There is so many people who are hurting physically, mentally ,and spiritually by people that is suppose to love them . The people that hurt other people are usually the ones who have been hurt themselves by other hurt people. Its a vicious cycle that we have to end. There's an old saying ,"sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me." THAT'S A LIE !  Words do hurt ! That pink thing in our mouths is full of poison and it kills people. People leave church every week…

TRUE LEADERS

We as the body of Christ gotta be true leaders and not religious hypocrites. We have a really bad habit of saying one thing and doing another. We have to realize that the  world is watching us. They're watching us in how we conduct ourselves in church,after church,and online. I recently was on my website  and  there is a older guy who is a atheist. He doesn't believe in God but he sees my vids and reads my blog post religiously. He asked me why is the…

WHO ARE YOU ?

Do you need a name, a title, and a shield  to define who you  are ? If you do, I really feel sorry for you because you have an identity crisis. In order for you to really feel like somebody, you make sure that on your social network you are identified as Minister so and so, Evangelist so and so  and so forth... I have found out that all people need right now is an encouraging word. They don't care about the letters after you name . They…

JUST SAY THANK YOU

Back in the day when you received something from your parent the word they wanted to hear was; "THANK YOU." When God opens the doors and reign blessing on you how about saying "THANK YOU." "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." I TH 5:18

CHALLENGING WORD TO OUR FUTURE

We need to challenge our young people to do better than they did last year. We have to teach them that doing things half-way is not going to make it out in the "REAL WORLD". I learned from personal experience from high school through my U.S. HISTORY teacher Ms. F.E. Williams who was very hard on her students,but for good reason. She wanted us all to succeed when we left H.D.WOODSON SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL. I was a very lazy student when it came to my studies and that behavior…

TREASURE YOUR TREASURE

 A woman is the greatest treasure in the world . She is to be treated with love, royalty and respect at all times for a woman is God's greatest gift to man .When we do things like abuse, call them out of their God give names ,and treat them like second class citizens we anger God.

GREED

Its sad that we are a nation of people who will say and do anything to get what we want. We've become a nation that lust for power,money,and lands that doesn't belong to us. We start wars just because we can not caring about the young lives that are cut short in the process. I love my country but when will the lust end? Greed is going to be our downfall . We have voted in political vampires that feed off our tax money and have the nerve to ask for more. Today I ask God a question: WHEN…

STAY IN THE FIGHT

Stay in fight even when you can see the light at the end of the tunnel . I have learned through my trial,tribulations and disappoints that they have a purpose in our lives. Romans 8:28,"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Stay in the fight ! Don't give up ! There is a blessing only if you STAY IN THE FIGHT…

WHEN WILL WE LEARN ?

There is an old saying ,"If you don't learn from history ,you're doomed to repeat it. For the life of me I don't understand why we haven't taken this quote seriously. We are using the 2nd Amendment like its the bible and mean while thousands of  innocent people are dying . WHY? POLITICS ! There are some who believe that if the president presents a gun control law America's freedom would be in jeopardy.I'm not saying to ban guns cause we realistically…

I found out that I had Crohn's Disease .  Crohn's disease, also known as regional enteritis, is a type of …

THE WMD: THE WEAPON IN OUR MOUTHS

There is a weapon that has killed more people than the MK-1 "LITTLE BOY" and the MK-III "FAT MAN" combine. Its the tongue. The pink thing in our mouths can kill a person's dreams,and cause a person to stop believing in themselves because of the words you spoke on their lives . Its important that we guard our tongues and THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK !  Ephesians 4:29 (new life version) " Watch your talk! No bad words should be…

KEEPING IT REAL

We are in a time that we have to be real about what is going on in our towns,our cities,and our communities. No longer can we put religious blinder on and walk around like problems don't exist.I have notice as of late that in my opinion, the church has been too silent on the political issues such as same sex marriage, gun control,  violence in  our communities ,AND AIDS. I believe that we need to sit down like brothers and sisters in Christ and discuss…

WHEN WILL WE STAND UP ?

I took a ride to the store to get some things for the house. In my shopping, my mind was on those 59 people injured and 12 killed on Friday in Colorado. In the back of my mind I said to myself ,"This could've be somewhat avoided." I know what your thinking...HOW? By first strengthening our gun laws. Not allowing guns to be so easily accessible . Guns are so easy to get that you can go online and purchase without an issue. Our government needs to stand up…

CHRISTIANITY GONE BAD

Some people take religion to the extreme. What do I mean ? Well I'm glad you asked ! When new people come to church and give their lives to God I've seen "helpers" try to make new babes speak in tongues. The person never spoke in tongues and I never saw them again. That was another babe scared off by over religious people walking in the flesh. I know... I know... you was trying to get them saved ! All they need to…

SELF-CENTEREDNESS

Its ok to be a little conceited but not to the point that you think that the world is all about about you . When you get to the point that YOU think that YOUR stuff don't stink you need to go check yourself. Self-centered people have fallen because they've forgot who put them where they are and when you get to the point where nobody can't tell you nothing God has ways of DEFLATING YOUR EGO . "One's pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit…
