Choose Him

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16

Jesus did not die for a chosen few, as some advocate, and leave the others to burn forever, those who were unfortunate enough not to be selected, but rather, Jesus died for whomsoever will. Let him come. Let her come.

If you are willing to come, come. God will in no way turn you away or ignore you. He desires Satraps, Ambassadors, and Emissaries. Why? So That He Might Not Suffer Loss—the loss of another soul He loves choosing to perish instead of choosing Him.

Jesus loves you. He died for you. He’s knocking at the door of your heart beckoning you to Him. Jesus did all the heavy lifting; all you have to do is call on His name and believe. Then, you will be saved.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Choose Him.

Be His Body

10 For it was fitting that He, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering. ~ Hebrew 2:10

God’s desire is to bring many sons and daughters to glory. Therefore, our job as Christians is to be Satraps and ambassadors for Christ so that we might add to the amount that are saved and redeemed. We are the hands and feet of Jesus. We are His eyes and His mouthpiece. Therefore, our job is to be vigilant, watchful, and testify to the goodness of God, to His miraculous saving power, and to His steadfast love So That He Might Not Suffer Loss.

What’s the bottom line? We must work hard, for the fields are white on to harvest (John 4:35). The fields are ready for harvesting, yes, but the laborers are few, so that means we must work even harder so that the king, LORD Jesus, the King of kings, Might Not Suffer Loss.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be His Body.

Be Careful

19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, 20 loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them. ~ Deuteronomy 30:19-20

From the very beginning, mankind was given a choice. Adam and Eve were given a choice in the Garden of Eden that day. It’s no good being given the freedom to choose but have no choices to make. It doesn’t work. It is only a farce. We have choices, and the freedom to choose.

We have a choice right now, either we step up to the plate and swing for the fence so that the King Might Not Suffer Loss, or we sit on the bench and watch the ball go by.

That is your choice!

Adam and Eve could have chosen to listen and obey God so that the king would not suffer loss, but instead, they chose quite the opposite.

Remember, man was created without sin. Adam and Eve were both innocent until they rebelled against God’s commandment and ate the forbidden fruit.

Instead of standing up to the serpent and protecting the king’s interest, both Adam and Eve gave in and rebelled against God, causing the king great loss.

Today, we still have a choice. We can either choose life or death. Freedom from Christ or sin. There is, always was, and always will be a choice.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be Careful What You Choose.

Hands of Man

28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” ~ Genesis 1:28

Did you notice God’s commission to Adam and Eve? This is the original Great Commission. To be:

  • Fruitful
  • To multiply and fill the earth
  • And subdue it

We were to get all of this done because God gave us dominion over all of the earth. Everything was placed under our control. Why would God place such power and control in the hands of man?

The short answer is So That He Might Not Suffer Loss.

His Strength

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. ~ Ephesians 6:10-11

AI, that Adulterous and Idolatrous city. Adultery is the same as spiritual Idolatry, and Idolatry is the same as spiritual adultery, and it comes in many forms.

  • Fornication
  • Sexual perversion
  • Pornography
  • Money
  • Power
  • Your job/work
  • Family
  • Car
  • House
  • Electronics
  • Games
  • Spiritual laziness
  • Sports
  • Celebrities
  • Concerts
  • TV
  • Ministry

When the men went up to fight AI, they were deceived into thinking they had it covered, not realizing they had a breach in their armor. Let us put on the full armor of God so that in the day of adversity, we will be able to stand.

Shake The Giants

17 And Jesse said to David his son, “Take for your brothers an ephah of this parched grain, and these ten loaves, and carry them quickly to the camp to your brothers. 18 Also take these ten cheeses to the commander of their thousand. See if your brothers are well, and bring some token from them.” 19 Now Saul and they and all the men of Israel were in the Valley of Elah, fighting with the Philistines. 20 And David rose early in the morning and left the sheep with a keeper and took the provisions and went, as Jesse had commanded him. And he came to the encampment as the host was going out to the battle line, shouting the war cry. 21 And Israel and the Philistines drew up for battle, army against army. 22 And David left the things in charge of the keeper of the baggage and ran to the ranks and went and greeted his brothers. 23 As he talked with them, behold, the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, came up out of the ranks of the Philistines and spoke the same words as before. And David heard him. ~ 1 Samuel 17:17-23

I recently had a conversation with my cousin, who describes himself as a Hebrew Israelite, and his wife, who is a self-proclaimed Muslim. They both deny the Godhood and the deity of Jesus. They both tried to argue from different standpoints why salvation and Jesus don’t make any sense. My cousin argued from the standpoint that a God who flooded the earth wouldn’t allow man to nail Him to a cross and kill Him. She argued that if Jesus was God and died for our sins, then there would be no more sin in the world, and all people would be perfect.

So, I did as my father taught me and gave an answer for each and every question they had using Scripture and not just my own opinions. After I gave my answers, I was told by my cousin’s wife that it didn’t make any sense, and no one died for anybody. So, I simply asked her what the Quran says about Mohammed. Does it not say that he didn’t know what Allah would do with him or them? Does it not say that Mohammed died and was buried? She was reluctant to answer my questions, but she agreed and answered. I then asked about Jesus. I asked if the Quran does not testify that He went into Heaven alive. To which she then had to concede and say it does. I then posed one last question, “If Jesus was taken into heaven alive and Mohammed died and was buried, why would I follow the dead man instead of the man taken into Heaven alive?”

She wasn’t a fan of this question, so my cousin attempted to come to her defense, stating that Mohammed knew things he shouldn’t’ve known, and therefore, you have to at least wonder. She then chimed in, saying that that was proof from God. I then pointed out that that isn’t actually evidence of anything, as there are writings from ancient Asia that describe brain surgery that modern scientists don’t understand how they knew these things. Just because someone is given knowledge doesn’t mean that they received that knowledge from God. She then proceeded to tell me that I need to let people believe what they want to believe and stop trying to convert people.

I didn’t go to my aunt’s house looking for a conversation with my cousin and his wife. In fact, I didn’t even know they were there. I went there to try to find something to fix my phone with, but instead of finding anything to fix my phone, I found myself in a debate with my cousin, his wife, and the lady who cooks for their family. It doesn’t matter where you are or what your plans are, sometimes, the Devil will try to shake up your faith, and if you haven’t prepared you’re faith will be shaken.

David didn’t go to fight Goliath; David went to bring food to his brothers. But he had prepared in private, so when it came time to face the giant, he was ready. Our lives involve battles upon battles upon battles. Some will be simple and easy; others will be three giants against one of you. And if you’ve prepared in private, you’ll be able to defend yourself against each giant that comes your way. Not only will you be able to defend yourself against their attacks, you will be able to attack back and shake the giants who attacked you.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Shake The Giants.

Avoid Russian Roulette

19 Then Joshua said to Achan, “My son, give glory to the Lord God of Israel and give praise to him. And tell me now what you have done; do not hide it from me.” 20 And Achan answered Joshua, “Truly I have sinned against the Lord God of Israel, and this is what I did: 21 when I saw among the spoil a beautiful cloak from Shinar, and 200 shekels of silver, and a bar of gold weighing 50 shekels, then I coveted them and took them. And see, they are hidden in the earth inside my tent, with the silver underneath.” 22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran to the tent; and behold, it was hidden in his tent with the silver underneath. 23 And they took them out of the tent and brought them to Joshua and to all the people of Israel. And they laid them down before the Lord. 24 And Joshua and all Israel with him took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver and the cloak and the bar of gold, and his sons and daughters and his oxen and donkeys and sheep and his tent and all that he had. And they brought them up to the Valley of Achor. 25 And Joshua said, “Why did you bring trouble on us? The Lord brings trouble on you today.” And all Israel stoned him with stones. They burned them with fire and stoned them with stones. 26 And they raised over him a great heap of stones that remains to this day. Then the Lord turned from his burning anger. Therefore, to this day the name of that place is called the Valley of Achor. ~  Joshua 7:19-26

I saw a video the other day where a little small dog would jump the neighbor’s fence just to provoke the two dogs next dog, which were much bigger than himself. When the two dogs came charging out, he would jump back over, and they would chase each other up and down the fence. Him on one side, and they on the other. To the small dog it seemed like fun, but I wonder what would have happened if he got caught on the wrong side of the fence?

That is what Achan did. He played the Russian Roulette game and lost. He got caught on the wrong side of the fence.

Adultery and Idolatry always go together; they are synonyms. Adultery is spiritual idolatry, and idolatry is spiritual adultery, as we saw earlier. They’re interchangeable. God always likens idolatry to sexual unfaithfulness to Him.

Therefore, be careful when playing games with your soul. It may seem like you’re winning and are unstoppable, but that’s all just an illusion to keep you playing the game so that one day you’re so far gone that you won’t even realize the bullet has struck you and you’ve spiritually died.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Avoid Russian Roulette.

Learn The Word

33 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, 34 and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man. ~ Proverbs 24:33

Please understand that poverty is a state or condition of lacking what is needed, below what is normal in society. When you lack what is needed, you are rendered powerless, lacking the condition or the state to fight the good fight at AI.

I’m talking about spiritual poverty. And a lot of people suffer from spiritual poverty. Temptation is always deceptive, but Jesus said you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

Therefore, cling to the Scriptures. Learn the Word of God. Allow the Spirit of the LORD to guide you and lead you so that you might dwell in the Truth of God. So that no temptation or deception can lead you astray.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Learn The Word.

Overcome With Thanksgiving

Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? ~ 1 Corinthians 5:6

Paul said a little leaven leavens the whole lump, and it’s that way with us as well. When we leave an open door, such as taking the things that belong to God, we stumble at AI; we lose the fight with Adultery and Idolatry.

We are deceived into thinking it is no big deal, but we lose, and sometimes we lose everything. We begin to make Mammon our god. Take things for granted. Become ungrateful.

An ungrateful heart will cause us to separate ourselves from God because we will no longer see all of the good things the LORD has done for us. Our hearts will become hardened towards the LORD and all of His good blessings upon us.

Therefore, strive to remove even the littlest amount of leaven from within you so that you might not be consumed by the flesh. Don’t be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good. Give thanks daily to the LORD for His many, many good blessings and gifts. And in doing so, you will overcome an ungrateful heart that is tied with Mammon.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Overcome With Thanksgiving.

Begin Transforming

13 Get up! Consecrate the people and say, ‘Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow; for thus says the Lord, God of Israel, “There are devoted things in your midst, O Israel. You cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the devoted things from among you.” ~ Joshua 7:13

God told Joshua to consecrate the people for tomorrow. You must always prepare today for tomorrow. If you wait for tomorrow, it will be too late; tomorrow will come and pass you by. Also, notice this. He was not going to do it for them; the people were to consecrate themselves.

Some people believe that this is an action taken by the LORD. But nowhere do I find the LORD doing this for us, we must do it for own ourselves. Even with things like Mount Sinai, when God came down on the mountain in Exodus 19, they had to consecrate both the mountain as well as themselves (Exodus 19:22-23).

God did not do it for them. We’ve gotten spiritually lazy and want God to do everything for us. Just take it away LORD, just take it away! But Paul instructed us in 1 Corinthians 5:7 to get rid of the old leaven so that we might be a new batch. We have to do it ourselves. We transform ourselves by renewing our minds, Paul wrote in Romans 12:2. And he wrote the same thing in Ephesians.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Begin Transforming.
