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!

Compassion

Luke 6:36 -“You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.”

Sometimes it’s hard in this world we live in to stay compassionate towards others, but we must always follow God’s lead. Amen?

Trials

Hebrews 12:11 -“No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.”

Trials are never easy but you will always emerge better on the other side. Keep the Faith! 🙏❤️

David’s Monday Thoughts

David’s Monday Thoughts!

1. Make the most of each minute you have available.

2. Don’t engage people that just want to argue.

3. Always remember you were lost once too.

4. Forgive always.

5. Give any and all glory to God.

Reblog if you have been blessed by these thoughts. 😃

Help!

Romans 8:26 -“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.”

We always have a Helper when we need it. Just call upon His name! Amen?

Love and Blessings,

David

Non-Negotiables

Today’s message will be quick but maybe not painless. There are a few “non-negotiables” when it comes to my faith in Jesus Christ that are not open for discussion. So much so that I am not even willing to have debate on these for if any of these are changed even in the slightest, the bedrock on which our faith is built no longer exists. Here they go.

  1. God is the Creator of all things that exist.
  2. God created the world in six actual days.
  3. God created the world without sin; WE (Adam and Eve) brought it upon ourselves.
  4. God still so loved His Creation that He sent His only Son Jesus Christ to pay the penalty WE should have paid; He paid it by dying crucified to an actual Cross in Calvary.
  5. Jesus laid in the tomb for 3 days before He rose again.
  6. After His resurrection, He walked among His people for a time and then ascended to the right hand of the Father.
  7. One day, at a time only known by the Father, Jesus will come again to judge the Earth and restore things how they were intended to be.
  8. The Bible is the inerrant Word of God, written by man but inspired by God. (I am willing to discuss translation issues as the Bible we read today is not in the same format it originally was, however, it is still the Word of God and the only source of Truth for how God calls us to live as well as all other aspects of why we are here.)
  9. Marriage was designed to be between One Man and One Woman.
  10. There is a very real place that awaits God’s people after we die called Heaven. There is also a very real place that awaits those who reject Him called Hell. Both places are eternal and will not be changed.

Again, for me, these basics are not open for discussion. If after reading this you choose not to be a part of my ministry, that’s ok. I for one, however, am tired of seeing the Church community divided on basic Godly Principles so I am making a stand.

Hope you all continue to serve with me!
