Why are some christians so mean?

MG_C1025-27A.JPG

The reason there are “christians” that act like something in the cast of “Mean Girls” is that Christianity is a spiritually imparted thing, not a learned thing, not a church you join, not something you inherit from your parents, and not a lofty goal to achieve- by continually striving to get there. “Real” Christianity is receiving by God’s spirit His ways, his revelations, his fruits of the Spirit, and most of all; HIS kind of Love. The types who think they have it (and have just learned to use the bible to hurt people) are the types that will kick a new Christian when they are down, so watch out! Don’t be deceived either, into thinking these false representatives of Christ are a true picture of “who he is.” Their image may say christian while their actions continually display behavior of the evil one. 

No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. 1 John 3:9 

                                

“The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Gal 5:19-21

Formulas Part 2 “let not your heart be troubled” …how can we make this so?

a-new-covenant

When the disciples decided to follow Jesus, they were also accepting an invitation to enter into a Covenant with Him. As they walked with him, he was allowing them to see, hear, and learn about him, and then finally decide, whether they wanted to be “IN Covenant” (or not).

Judas chose not to do that, as he decided at the end, his answer was “No.” 

This morning as I was thinking about the elections, the condition of our nation, and all the things I am hearing about the subject, I thought wow are we really in this Much trouble Lord? It’s scary (I thought) Some of the things we have heard……

Immediately the passage “Let not your heart be troubled” came to heart and mind. I already knew what it said after that, but I looked it up anyway, thinking “teach me Lord” what you are wanting to say to my heart.” ……..

See, I’ve read this scripture numerous times. Today I saw “Oh, so right after You said let not our hearts be troubled,” You said “In my house are many mansions.” Sounds like “don’t worry, because you get to die, then come up here with me, and all will be well!” Great answer! “pray for death?” …….Oh come on, don’t tell me you haven’t thought that at least one time! Where do you think that statement came from, “two things you can count on, death and taxes!” ……(me looking all aghast here!) 

Not long after (in John 14) Jesus adds “Ask what you will it shall be done that we might be Glorified” …(paraphrased) OH So .…It’s for his names sake! OH WOW a very big clue as to “how our prayers” should be shaped ……..

Yes yes, he’s the potter we are the clay. but you CAN KNOW what he is up to (if you care to know!). “I want to shape your prayers to think like me……” (more covenant stuff here) so we are in partnership with God himself! and He wants us to know HIS Desires so we can pray HE can be glorified! oh and Greater works will we do than HE (He said) WOW! 

Just be careful,  “greater things” Is still HIS Ideas not our own ideas! oooo because we still have to watch out for that enemy (satan) who says “I can be exalted and I have better ideas than God does” (OH DEAR LORD!) …….

Formulas: We want them because we are too lazy to pray (sometimes) or it’s just too much bother to “GET TO KNOW THE LORD” ……Oh how sad that is! 

Tell you what, Let’s get together and pray Father, what do you want in this situation? What would you like to see happen? This is YOUR earth YOUR PLANET and I am yours! 

ALL You have is mine, because All I have is yours Father God! Covenant (like marriage) and let me tell you something, Your MARRIAGE To God takes precedence over every other commitment or, it should………….right? ………..

So we have a lot to look forward to people of God “BEFORE” we go to heaven! “Greater things shall we do “(in HIM) And Amen.

Etched In Stone: Yes, it’s personal

ROCK stoneJust as God wrote the 10 commandments on a slab of rock, He now wants to etch his words, into our very hearts and minds. This is what He did with the early disciples, and they became other sons, doing great and mighty exploits for Him. They didn’t have bibles, they were testimonies of what God prophesied He would do in the Old Testament. “I will write my laws on their hearts…….”

In Hebrews, 1-:16, as with many New Testament scriptures, the promise is written again, so that we find it in both the old, and the new. “I will write my laws into their hearts and minds, I will remember their sins no more.” His Laws. His directives. His revelation. His words to us, personally. Its part of the covenant we enter into, with Him. We give Him all of us, He gives us all of him. The only thing is, we can only receive so much at a time, because we live in a body of flesh and blood.

This is what God said to me. “Once I etch something into the heart and mind of a believer, it’s etched in stone.” They alone stand (are) accountable between me and them. To draw back (away) From what I have said to a believer, is to insult my spirit of Grace. (Heb 10:29)

To sin willfully, is to deliberately go against what I have told a person. This is personal, between me and them. It’s like if you told your daughter to wash the floor. Soon you find out she didn’t. She says, “My brother wasn’t, so I didn’t either.” Are you amused? No, you are not amused.” So you see, people are not accountable until God has spoken something to them (personally) and has etched it into their heart.

Walking by the Spirit (of God) is so crucial, so important, I cannot emphasize this enough. We need to stay focused on what God wants to say to US my friends, and if he does give us insight into the life of another, They will have already been prepared by God to hear it.

I pray right now for a Spirit of Obedience and submission to be upon us Father, that you would clearly reveal to your people, what you are saying to them today, and help them to receive this blessing, of your very words, being etched into their hearts and minds, just as we are also etched into the very palms of your hand. IN Jesus’ name. Amen.
