Sin!

what-is-sin

Hello again! Hope everyone’s Saturday is going well so far. I have coffee in hand and am about to discuss a subject with you that may cost me some peeps. I preface this message by saying I also include myself in it and that it is all coming from a place of love but yet urgency. So, if you are easily offended or not up for real talk, I will give you a moment to leave……

Ok! For those still here, THANK YOU! I know that each of you here have many choices and millions of blogs you could be reading so I truly appreciate the fact that you are here and giving me just a few minutes of your day. So Sin…a touchy subject and vastly misunderstood. Misunderstood for a myriad of reasons but for our purposes here I will focus on three;

  1. We have forgotten how sin came into this world
  2. We have definitely forgotten just how powerful it is
  3. We most certainly have forgotten the way to break free from it.

*We have forgotten how sin came into this world. Well I can assure you that Eden was a real place and Adam and Eve were real people created by God. I can also assure you that when God created them, the world was a much different place. It was perfect in every way; a place with no Sin and one where God walked in His creation. (Again, not the place to give support for this but trust me its true). In fact, there was only one rule from God at the time and that was not to eat from a tree called The Tree of Knowledge. There are some debates why God imposed this rule but at the end of the day if the Creator gives you ONE rule to follow, you might want to listen. Well they didn’t listen, Adam had no idea where his bride went and so when Satan tempted her to eat from the tree, she did; and so at that moment the world was forever changed and Sin was born.

*We have forgotten just how powerful sin is. Let’s look at this from two aspects shall we?  -First, the perfect world was no more. Adam and Eve realized they were naked and now had to work for a living. It was also the beginning of the decay of the world physically; the perfection that was there could no longer be. Why? Simply because God can’t be around Sin; it is the opposite of Who he is and so the world started its Fall right there.*

-The second aspect  of this would be in our own lives. Now for those of you that are believers in Christ, how do you feel when you KNOW you have done something sinful? I can tell you that when I KNOW I did something against God’s Word, I feel like a semi truck ran over me, stopped and came back, then did it again. Oh and repeated this process over and over again for the rest of my day. Tell me I’m not the only one here….Yes some of it is guilt but much of it is because Sin is powerful! Almost the most powerful energy in the Universe; second only to Love. Make no mistake, this feeling is straight from the same Enemy that laid the path for our ancestors to make the same mistake*

*The final aspect I want to share with you is that we have definitely forgot that there is a way to avoid it altogether and BREAK THE CHAINS of Sin in our lives. That way is through the Blood of Jesus Christ! This is why I always say to new believers, you MUST understand Sin before you can truly appreciate the need for Christ and why God HAD to send Him to pay the penalty that should have been paid by us. As a believer God has given you the ability to speak directly to Him (without anyone in a collar) and confess with our mouths that we are sinners and pray for His Holy Spirit to guide us AWAY from our sinful desires. Today though I believe we do the opposite….

I believe that many of us just have “Hell insurance”. We said some words and now live however we want. Yet still wonder why our lives are all jacked up. I’m not talking about living by some legalistic rules which are not even biblical; I mean totally surrendering our lives to Jesus and embracing the victory over Sin that He won on that Cross of Calvary. Are you ready for that today? Are you ready to BREAK THE CHAINS of Sin that bind you at every turn? I don’t mean perfection either; until Jesus returns the sad fact is that we live in a sinful world and we are not yet perfect. However, we can get awfully close but ONLY when we live through Him!

In closing, remember that even when you do fall to Sin and its temptations, you are still forgiven! Get back up, dust yourself off, and embrace the forgiving arms of Jesus. Amen? Thank you all again and I pray that this message resonated in your soul; time is short my friends….

Love in Christ,

David

 

Dreams or Visions- Reminder

***Since I have a bunch of new people here and this was really on my mind, I thought I would share this with you.***

 

Good morning everyone. I know most of you are either still asleep or heading to church. I am neither right now. I had a really rough night last night with my hip and so rather than put off the inevitable, I got up, showered and have coffee in hand as I type this. This morning I am going to do something different; something different in that I have never shared publicly some of the things that I am about to share with all of you. My close family knows these but not much more than that. For a long time I dreaded talking about them as some of my “visions” are not very pleasant; as the one in which I am going to share with you today. It exposes me I guess to various reactions which is why I have been hesitant, but if I am ever going to reach my goals of bringing a message through my writing I have to shed that fear. So, with a warning that this might be disturbing, enter into my world….

Time’s Up

I found myself awake of sorts, I mean I knew I was dreaming, or was I? In any case the world around me was very vivid. The world in which I walked was not the world in which I left. This world was very “from the Matrix”. The sky was darkened and the sun shine through just enough to give the world I was in a dark, blue misty haze about it. There was a massive building to the right of me which I could not quite tell of its purpose but that is not what drew my attention. What made me realize I “wasn’t in Kansas anymore” was the image in front of me. There was a towering crane-like structure that must have stood 300 feet or more in height and at the bottom was a woman; a woman that was chained with her arms spread wide and her head encased in a device that she could not escape from. She was pleading for her life, but in a language that I could not understand, yet I knew it was her life that was on the line here……

The were two figures, one on each side of her head simply laughing at her pleas clearly amused at her efforts to deal her way out of whatever this situation was she found herself in now. The two figures saw me but clearly their attention was solely on this woman. At this point, there was movement in the giant machine and surprisingly the top part of the device that was holding her head in place started to come off and I was thinking that maybe they had changed their mind and whatever fate they had for her had changed. All along the two demonic looking creatures by her side kept laughing; I couldn’t tell if the laughter was for her, for me, or for both but in any case the laughter was bone chilling. This “release” from the device was an ignorant assumption because as soon as the top part of the device came off, another one came down from the top of the giant machine. This was one was much more sinister has it had giant daggers protruding from what appeared to be some clawed like mechanism. This then got lowered down and it clamped her head so tight I thought her head might explode right then and there but alas it was only tight enough to begin the process of lifting her up to the top of the giant “machine” which now clearly revealed a demonic face that in my worst nightmares or horror movies have never seen. It was as if I was staring at hate in its purest form….

While the lady was being pulled by her head up to the top, the other restraints released from her so that all that was attached to her was this claw like attachment. I remember screaming for her, that whatever this was she didn’t deserve this punishment. All this beast did was laugh with an evil sound so hideous, I wanted to run away but couldn’t. Finally the lady met her accuser at the top of the machine and started a countdown; three…..”no, please help me”…..two…….one………and then it happened. The claw like device pulled her head away from the rest of her body while her torso fell to the ground, the hideous beast held its prize with just ahead and spinal cord remaining. The Beast as proud of its victory and all I could do was shutter in fear of what was next…..

What was next was I woke up in my bed and could not believe what had just happened….I have had visions before but this was more real than almost any of them. Was this just a nightmare? Possibly but I think it was more than that; I believe I was witnessing what happens in the future when the “Mark of the Beast” is refused. I believe there is a time coming where the ultimate choice will have to be made; God or Lucifer. I believe I saw the result of a choice. What say you? What choices will you make today to avoid a potential encounter such as this?

Have a blessed day my friends and I look forward to your feedback and support….

Love and Truth,

Good morning everyone! As promised I am back and ready for a full message. I have coffee in hand and ready to go. Before I begin, I just want to say that I know its been a hard week for alot of you (myself included). The good news is that God is still in control and despite what it all may seem like, this will all make sense soon. (Not sure who that was for but it is for someone out there).

Today I have something a little different for you. Since there are a bunch of new people following this blog, I wanted to kind of pause from the norm and give a reminder of sorts what my intent and mission is with this blog…

See, I don’t think of this site as just a blog; I look at it as a ministry. Its not a traditional one with four walls as such but a ministry nonetheless. I feel that God has given me a message that is quite different than what you would normally hear in the Church today, so I am very grateful I have this platform in which to bring this to you all. I take the time that we are here together very seriously because I know this is what God has called me to do. I won’t be leaving my full time job anytime soon, however, this definitely is a full time ministry in my eyes. I guess that is why I try so hard to tell people, don’t worry about your numbers and likes, just produce life-changing content. Hopefully so far, that is what I have done here….

So what is this message you ask? Well if you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m totally annoyed and upset at what the Church has become. Satan literally no longer needs to fight the Church because we have almost totally destroyed it ourselves with false doctrine and underhanded motives. For example, I give you this passage that is often used against me…

Hebrews 10:25– “Let us not neglect meeting together, as some have made a habit, but let us encourage one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching

Does this verse anywhere say, you must go to a building every Sunday at 10:30 AM? No it doesn’t. What it says is that we as believers must always take time to meet so we can encourage one another as the Day of His return gets closer. Now if going to a building every Sunday at 10:30 AM is your way of meeting, great! But if its not, we should not be chastising people that choose to meet another way. If we do, we are no better than the Pharisees of old that simply throw around legalistic jargon to get people to worship THEM not God.

Another one I hear often is how we should dress our best when we meet. Ok that is fine but which do you think God would rather have?

  1. You spending tons of money on suits and fancy jewelry to wear to Church.
  2. Spend that money on helping the less fortunate get their next meal or maybe even a place to live. (then we can all stop blaming the government for things and be the light that God called us to be).

I could go on and on with example after example of what I mean but I think you get the point. A veil of lies has been placed on our eyes and I feel that I have been called to remove that veil. I hope, through this ministry/blog to get us back to TRUTH and what the Bible actually says and calls us to do. Who is with me? Who is ready to get out of their comfort zone and join me in serving. Time is short and souls are in the balance; there is so much out there and people are confused. Let us clear things up for them shall we?

Thank you all so much and have a great Saturday!!

Blessings,

David

Victory!

Happy Friday!!! Do you ever just feel defeated? I know sometimes I do. With all that is going on in my life sometimes I just feel like, why should I even bother… but then I come across some Truth like the passage above. For if I am in Christ, the battle is already over and I am victorious!! Because of what Jesus did for me, I no longer have to fight these battles because victory has already been claimed for me!

Doesn’t get much better than this friends. Question is are you in Christ? I mean really in Christ or are you just playing religion? Think about it, the difference is eternal…

Have a great day friends!
