What To Do?

These were the best of times, these were the worst of times…..

its_the_best_of_times_and_the_worst_of_times

Who am I kidding, these are the WORST of times.

Last night on Twitter it hit me when I saw the left start the hashtag, “Wrong Trump”. It then hit me that humanity has reached a new low. A low so far down into the depths of Hell that there is no coming back. This truly is as were the days of Noah.

noah

No one listens, no one cares, no one has an open mind to understand why people feel the way that they do. Just the “I will be right” mentality at all costs. Not everyone can be right though correct? Who is really right? Who is wrong? Where is God in all of this? Has He just said Peace Out you all have reached a level of evil that there is no saving from?

As I write this, I don’t really believe that God has given up on us, nor is He surprised. He has seen this play out once before and He took care of it with a flood. This time He will take care of it with fire. So what now, what do we do? Just pull up a chair and watch the fireworks begin? I feel so conflicted….

conflicted

On one hand I say, let it burn and all the evil that goes with it. (These days its hard to see where the evil really is as the Church overall has done NOTHING to help things). On the other hand, God has called us to share His Good News no matter what; and even if one more soul gets saved, its worth it right? Do souls even get saved any more? Very hard to tell….

Also, is the current Social Media presence real? Is it a real indication of how far depraved we have come or is it simply a Matrix type program that is getting us to think that we are that far gone. If it is just an illusion, its a damn good one….

matrix

So again I think, now what….The way I see it we have three choices.

  1. Do nothing, get rid of all Social Media and interaction with others and pull up a chair to wait for the fire.
  2. Feed into the negative and continue to talk about how bad and evil the “left” or right” is with no real solutions. (Yes, Republicans, you do it too...)
  3. Take a breath and know that God is still in control and He has given you the Holy Spirit which is more powerful than any evil presence in this world. Speak positively, listen often, and refuse to engage in the bait Satan has left you.

Well, simply by the length of number three you would think that is the way to go. I mean, if we believe that the Bible is truly God’s Word and that His promises are true, then none of this should be a surprise right? Jesus warned us of this over 2,000 years ago and here we are right?

I want so bad to make number three a fixture in my life, but number one often takes priority. I’m just so sick and tired of ALL sides engaging in the war to destroy each other. We used to think that some outside force would destroy our country but instead WE are destroying it OURSELVES. Satan has turned us against each other in all areas; the Great Deceiver has performed his role with excellence and here we are….

So, what is it going to be folks? Door 1, 2, or 3. The choice that we make will determine if this truly is how we go down and if any more souls get won for Christ. How much do we REALLY love Christ? How much do we REALLY believe the Bible is God’s Word? How we go from here will tell God all He needs to know…

It’s time to stand up or sit down; as has been the case since Eden, the choice is ours…

Let It Go!

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! This get your attention? I know it can be annoying but Frozen is one of my favorite all time Disney movies and honestly can’t wait to see the upcoming Broadway version. So many positive messages in this movie along with some God inspired vocals for sure. The Frozen “Let it Go” is not what this message is about however so get ready to really Let it Go!

Colossians 3:15  “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

So often in our lives we deal with daily struggles and with that we are always looking for a way out of those struggles. Health issues, job issues, just every day life issues are always disrupting us and preventing us from having peace. More than anything worrying picks us up in the air and face-palms us right into the ground, But what I find fascinating is that the resource for escaping all of this is right in front of us yet we avoid it like the plague; Jesus.

You see when we make Jesus our Savior, like the passage above says, He gives us a peace inside of us that we can tap into whenever we need it. We have died to our former selves and now have become a “new creation” in Christ Jesus! Yet, we continue to look for earthly ways to obtain that peace and then wonder why we always struggle.

I often hear that its not easy to do; of course it isn’t! You have an Enemy who hates the very fiber of your existence who is always whispering that you have no hope! But the devil is a liar and so are those words! No earthly words, preaching, or advice can give you what the peace of Jesus Christ can, NOTHING! Yet we turn to “experts” on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, yes even WordPress before we go to the only One that can give us what we desire so greatly.

Friends, as a Christ follower you have two choices here; One- you continue to live for the world and live a life of worry, struggle, depression, and frustration. Or two- You place ALL of the worry, struggle, depression, and frustration in your life and give it to Jesus where He will replace that with a peace beyond understanding. I told my middle son the other day that I honestly fear nothing anymore and its true! I struggle still yes but with God in my life, what do I need to fear? Fear this decaying peace of meat that is only a vessel to get around this planet? Nothing can destroy the real me that is inside and that God will always protect.

Today everyone, just LET IT GO! Break the chains of worry, fear, and frustration and watch Jesus change your life!

In Christ,

David

Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to the weekend!

I hope you all enjoyed my first blog post back yesterday. It really is good writing again and I hope to hear from each of you soon.

Today we are in the book of Psalms. A passage that I know challenges me; how about you? Waiting is never something that comes easy for me; I want things done now and if not my OCD goes into overdrive. Can you relate?

Problem is that when we are not patient on the Lord to fulfill His will for our lives, things always go wrong. How many times have you got tired of waiting on a certain prayer or a certain career opportunity and just took things on your own timeline. What were the results? In my experience, they never work out well.

Not only that, but then God shows me WHY I was supposed to wait.He is such a good Father, Amen?

Friends, if we say today that we trust the Lord, then we must wait on His timing in our lives. Its not all bad waiting though because He has given His children the Holy Spirit, which when we allow it, will give us peace and understanding while we wait.

Make your goals and dreams set to His timing and watch the results exceed anything you could have ever imagined. Amen?

Love and Blessings,

David

Have We Forgotten?

Have we forgotten our purpose?

Good morning everyone and welcome to the weekend! Another full week of fun and games at that thing we call life. Things are starting to look up here at the ole Fischer corral; my Bride is recovering nicely, I am over that silly head cold, we have food in our house, and we are warm from the cold. How much more could I ask for?

My family is blessed beyond imagination; hence my topic today “Have We Forgotten”? Forgotten what? I’m glad you asked!

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matthew 22:36-40

Love…We have forgotten love. Sounds too simple right? I mean, God has called us to so much; how can our mission be so simple? Well, in this crazy world in which we find ourselves today, Satan has done a great job of clouding our minds to make us forget the importance of this passage above.

See if we don’t love God with all our heart, soul, and mind and then love each other as we would love ourselves, NOTHING else matters. Are you hearing me this morning? NOTHING. Why? Well people always forget the last part of this passage…ALL the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. ALL of it!

Your ministry, your blogs, your career, your good intentions, NOTHING else matters if you first haven’t mastered these two simple acts. See people say things like, “We are called to judge”, “We are called to hold people accountable” and my personal favorite “I can love them but not hang around them”. Really?

Yes, we are called to do so much more; the New Testament is filled with teachings and commands that Jesus has for us; BUT if we haven’t taken these first two commands to heart and applied them, none of it matters. It’s like going from First Grade to Harvard without knowing how to read and write. It doesn’t work and neither does our actions when we try and live the Bible without love; that is the problem.

P.S. This includes the judgment or the "let's wait and see" attitude of people with checkered pasts professing their new found love for Christ. Be better saints!!

Love, not just any love, but the Agape Love that Christ showed us on the Cross. Can we do that? Can we stop the madness and just love God and others today? Once we master that, all the other things fall into line. Satan has also done a good job of making us forget where we came from; do you not remember what a wretch you were before Christ? Do you not understand that in fact you still would be if it were not for the saving Blood of Christ?

Step out in faith today friends and just love. God has shown you how, now just do it. Move beyond YOU and get back to what He has called us to do. Amen?

Agape Love my friends,

David

Social Media Fighting

Hello my friends and welcome to another Saturday! As I wrote last week, I have changed my post frequency to once a week here on WordPress so I can focus my writing and ideas to sharpen my content rather than just putting a bunch of stuff out there for “views”. I pray that all of you had a great week and now can enjoy some down time with friends and family.

Before I get started, in my https://youtu.be/ru2HgJERGBQ video and in some of my https://twitter.com/David_Fischer71 posts, I challenged each of you to do the following steps each day when waking up..

  1. Before your feet hit the floor, thank God for another day He has given you breath.
  2. Go drink a full glass of water to rehydrate your body.
  3. Before looking at your phone, go think of three things that you are thankful for.

So how did you do? Where you able to do all three? Maybe just one or two? If you have, let me know in the comments below how it effected your day. If not, I highly encourage you to start your day off this way; it WILL make a difference in how your day goes I promise you that. More tips to come in future tweets and videos so stay tuned! Now on to today’s topic…

Man has Social Media opened up opportunities to get our voices heard huh? In the past to get your name or ideas out there, one would have to become a celebrity or politician, etc. Now with the inventions of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, anyone with an internet connection can say pretty much anything they want to anyone; most times without any repercussion. Agreed?

This isn’t a bad thing in and of itself because in a way it puts us all on the same level for getting our voices (or words) heard and seen. The problem is though that it has now gotten a bit out of control.

Driven by the completely corrupt media (Yes even Fox News) social media has become a place where 99 percent of the time people only report on negativity. That too would be ok as to bring evil things to light but most of the time we don’t even know if its true or not! We post things without researching them all in the hopes to get a bunch of “likes” or “retweets” to get people to notice them. It just doesn’t stop there either..

Once we post these negative stories or comments, then the online fighting begins. No one stops to take in what is written, we just immediately slam back with rude and hurtful comments for the whole world to see; and that is just from the Christian accounts, you should see the secular ones….

Yes, fellow Christians, we do it…don’t act shocked that I’m bringing it up…

Point? No matter what people may say, they are searching for 2 things; Truth and Positivity. That is why the world is in the state that it is friends; you know the old song, “Looking for love in all the wrong places”? Still applies today. People are tired of the negativity, tired of all the evil that is going on in the world. Problem is that they don’t know where to find anything else. Let’s help them out shall we? How do we do that? I will give you these three steps to start..

  1. When you post online, try and keep it uplifting and positive.
  2. People will always try and flood your post with negative comments; you DON”T HAVE TO RESPOND. Let people see the evil first hand and let God deal with them.
  3. Speak Truth! The Word of God NEVER returns void. It is not up to us for the results, only up to us to give the message.

Friends, just like money, Social Media is not evil; only in how we use it. Let us use this enormous resource God has given us to speak His Word to the whole world. Are we not living in the time where quite literally the entire planet can hear about the saving Grace of Jesus Christ? Put away the memes and the instigating comments and share what God has to say; souls are in the balance….

Love and blessings to you all!

I have decided that instead of posting multiple times a day, I will be focusing more on the content of each message. Views mean a lot but if folks aren’t really reading them it’s not making an impact. So, I also have a way to connect that you can get my daily thoughts on by joining my FaceBook group by clicking here. Just ask to join the group when you get there and I’ll approve it right away.

Love to all and I pray everyone comes closer to the Lord than ever before!
