Choice

Since choices often result in eternally significant consequences, we must choose in line with God’s principles.“- Steven J. Cole

Hello everyone and welcome to the weekend! I have a lot to put out here so lets get right to it shall we? One word before you keep reading though, there is a high degree of probability this message will offend you so if you think that will be you, stop now…However, if you are ready for some truth, please, keep reading and keep your seat belts on….

Still with me? Great! So choice….So many times I see people that live a certain way or think a certain way and they always say “I have no choice”. FALSE. You ALWAYS have a choice in what you do, say, or believe. Let me give you some examples..

  1. You make the choice to start your day off in a positive way or a negative one.
  2. You make the choice to reject Jesus Christ as Savior.
  3. You make the choice to accept Jesus Christ as Savior.
  4. You make the choice to lead a Gay lifestyle.
  5. You make the choice to lead a Straight lifestyle.
  6. You make the choice to be cheat on your spouse.
  7. You make the choice to honor your vows and not cheat on your spouse.
  8. You make the choice to lie.
  9. You make the choice to be a man or woman of honor with your word.
  10. You make the choice to run towards sin or away from it.

I could go on and on with this list but these are some of the big ones. Again, these are all very conscious choices we make every single day. Unfortunately, we live in a current world where people are not held accountable for their actions. (Well, some are but that topic is for another post). So when we make the choice to do wrong or something against the will of God, its accepted and all the world is supposed to be fine with it and not “judge”.

This climate has led to one very disturbing thing…Not only has the world become one with accepting sin and choices that lead to sin but so has the Church and its members.

Pastors aren’t preaching on Hell anymore; why? They are afraid of losing members which will of course hurt their pocket book. Pastors aren’t preaching on homosexual lifestyle and how to be delivered from it; why? Same reason. People in the Church aren’t confronting the evil in the world; why? They don’t want to be attacked for their faith so they take it to Social Media and that is where it stops. In the real world most are so silent you can hear the proverbial pin drop. Why??

Have you forgotten the cost of the Cross??

Have you forgotten all that God gave up so YOU could be the Light of the World both here and in the life to come?

Have you forgotten how many times you have fallen and Jesus was still right there loving you and picking you up?

Yet silent you sit because your afraid to stand up for your faith! That is a choice too you know…Peter made the same choice…However just like Peter, there is still time to turn it around. There is still time to make the choice to stand up and make whatever sacrifice is necessary to make your voice heard for the Gospel.

Must we do this in love? Of course! We don’t need to engage in mindless back and forth bickering online or in person. If someone’s heart and mind is closed there is nothing we can do about that; its not our job to worry about the results. What is our job is to shout to the world the following Truths and more:

  1. Jesus Christ is the Risen Savior of all Mankind; without Him there is no escaping the judgment of our sin for all eternity in Hell.
  2. Abortion is murder with NO exception.
  3. Being Gay is a choice; you choose to live that life just as a Straight person would choose to cheat on their spouse or sleep with many partners.
  4. Lying to others is a choice. Be a man/woman of strong character and accept your path.
  5. There is no choice you have made that is unforgivable. God loves you more than you can imagine and wants NO ONE to perish.

So, what is your choice today? Every minute of every day you make a choice. Some are bigger than others but still you make a choice. For your eternal one, just how much faith do you have? Will you be like Peter before the crucifiction and deny Jesus and His teachings? Or will you be like Stephen who was stoned to death for preaching his faith in Jesus?

One choice leads to life, the other to the Second Death. Choose wisely this day for you cannot serve two masters. One hates you and wants you with him in Hell, the other loves you so much He let Himself be tortured beyond measure so you could live!

Make the right choice…

Challenge

Hey hey!

So, I have a challenge for all of you. I want you to REALLY think about what the above statement means to you and post a comment below. Let’s really be a community here and help each other out!

To me it means simply to put Christ first in all we do and stop worrying about how others act as a result. If we are truly mimicking Christ everything else will fall into place.

Peace!

Good Morning everyone. Thank you so much to everyone that has sent their prayers and well wishes as we continue to help support our family through this difficult time…

So, in that Spirit, I am going to do something different this morning. For many of you this will be difficult because you don’t like asking for help, however, step out of your comfort zone just a little and tell me how I can pray for YOU today. Is there something going on in your life you don’t understand? Something maybe you have been struggling with for a long time and just need some prayers? Please, it would be a privilege to pray for you in your circumstance.

You don’t need to give all the details if you don’t want to, maybe just type “unspoken” in the comments below and be sure to tell me your name so I can pray for you specifically. Also, if you do feel like sharing your story, you can comment below or just send me an email to damar19911996@gmail.com and you can share with me your prayer request there.

Again, thank you all so much and now let me help you by using the biggest weapon we have against the Enemy, prayer!

Agape Love to all,

Cancer Sucks

cancer-sucks-lapel-pin-purple-5

Good morning/afternoon/evening my friends. I won’t waste any time because I have alot to express this morning and it will come to you in two parts. So, please stay with me through the first, I promise you won’t leave discouraged….

So, as some of you know, my Bride’s stepmom was diagnosed with Cancer about a year ago. As it typically does, it was discovered from a completely separate incident and shocked all of us especially her. Cancer sucks for many reasons but one thing it doesn’t do is discriminate. It doesn’t care if your White, Black, Asian, Christian, Jew, atheist, it just doesn’t care….So for the last year, she has fought it like a champ going through the chemo treatment and any other path the doctors could provide for her. We were all praying too that God would intervene and kick this thing out.

One thing you have to know about this awesome woman before I go any further is she is a Warrior! I thought I knew what multitasking meant but she re-defined it. So many holidays I would see her cooking multiple meals at the same time while also doing the dishes, taking care of her grand kids, and all the while carrying on a conversation with multiple people that she was fully engaged in. She is our firecracker for sure; just never slowed down or stopped for a second. I guess that is why this is so difficult for all of us…

We got the call the other day that Hospice had only given her a few days left because now her liver, kidney, and pancreas had all completely shut down so if we wanted to see her alive we needed to get there ASAP. So of course we did; we went to go see her and well it was heartbreaking to see the effects of a disease take someone that was so vibrant and energetic to what she is now. Cancer is destructive beyond anything I have ever witnessed….With that said, somehow she STILL got out of her bed that Hospice brought in and came out to the kitchen area to try and talk to us. Her strength is so inspiring….

So, here on this Saturday we continue in prayer for a miracle but also pray that her transition to eternity with Jesus goes smoothly. Thank God for that blessed assurance to know that this period of frailty is only temporary. That very soon she will be reunited with my Father-in-Law where they will embrace the King of Kings together! What an assurance we all can have if we have trusted in Him as our Savior…..

I thank you all for your continued prayers for her and all the family involved. No matter how you view things, this is never easy for anyone including the people left behind. But I will close with this for those that maybe reading this and are going through the same thing. Through Jesus Christ we can ALL have eternal life. You can have the assurance that one day our frail bodies will be replaced with perfect ones and serve the Creator in Heaven for all eternity. Serve in a place that surpasses all understanding with the God that loves you also beyond all understanding. Death is NOT the end my friends, it is only a transition. Through Christ, there will be a day with no more pain, no more tears, and the final blow of Justice will be dealt. Have you made that decision yet? Don’t waste any time my friends, tomorrow is never guaranteed….

God bless you all and thank you again.

David

Good morning/afternoon everyone! Not a real deep message this morning but did want to say Thank You! I have only had this blog about two months now and I just went over 100 subs. This is amazing considering my writing is still kind of all over the place in what direction I want it to go. Overall, however, my message remains the same; we must remove the veil that has been placed over our eyes by an Enemy that you may not even know exists. A veil that has kept you in the dark about the true nature of life, your destiny, and the true paths that are before you.

I thank you for those that have joined me and ask that you would share my blog with other to join me for if even one person comes to the Light, my mission has been a success. Have a great Tuesday my friends!

The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

” This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”

There truly is a rabbit hole, do you have the curiosity to see how far it really goes?
