How Do We Love In A World Full Of Hate

This fallen world in which we live is getting more hateful by the day, society’s majority has accepted the devil’s way of play, listening and obeying every lying, deceptive word that he say, the daily news alone is enough to propel me to perpetually pray.

Mass murder of innocent human beings, all sorts of people doing all sorts of satanic, demonic things.

Even on Holy ground, places where one would never expect to hear that deadly sound, gunshots fired, round after round after round, hate has the hearts and minds of so many utterly bound.

There’s hate in the lands on the other side of the sea, to the east, the west, to the north, the south, hate is all around, and in clear view so we can plainly see, hate is even intertwined in the shows that’s created for T.V., fact is, hate binds up, hate cannot set free, hate is produced and brought to life in the heart of man through man’s eternal enemy.

What’s on the inside is what eventually seeps out, God is Love, and it’s in Love that we are able to stand against hate strong and stout, when we fill ourselves with Love’s Word, we are able to trump hate, because over Love hate has no clout.

How Do We Love In A World Full Of Hate

The Living Word of God tells us that the Love of many would wax cold, so in this day, to Love we must keep a tight hold, even when we’re all caught up in the midst of hate, it’s only in Love that we’re able to remain steadfast and bold, it’s in The Word of God that we will find the greatest Love story ever told.

A story about a Savoir who came from Heaven to a fallen world full of a people who are desperately lost, even for those who literally, physically hung Him there, He gave up His life on a old rugged cross, to die for your friends is one thing, but to die for an enemy is Love’s ultimate cost.

God is Love, so when it’s in the Word of Love that we meditate, society’s hate, can’t penetrate, it’s this Love that has the power to actually make us brand new, not “just” wipe our sins away and give us a clean slate, and on the manifestation of Love’s glory, we will, at times have to patiently wait, just remember: “GOD IS LOVE” whenever you find yourself asking yourself,

I Won’t Be Moved!!!

I Won’t Be Moved!!!

 

Here I stand at the foot of The Cross,

standing as obedient as I know how, though I’ve experienced much loss,

my losses were nothing more than setups leading me into total dependence on my Lord and Savior, “The Big Boss”.

 

I have learned to leave every situation in the hands of my God, then watch Him, out of the bad; manifest good,

in the most deadly attacks from the enemy, it’s faith in my God’s grace, mercy, favor and agape love that I have stood,

I can’t turn back now, but I wouldn’t even if I could.

 

This is where I find peace in the midst of turmoil,

this is where I learn to plant my seed in Kingdom soil,

this is where I find rest after my hard labor and toil.

 

This is where I have found forgiveness for my past, present and future sin,

this is where I regain my assurance that, in the end;

“I Win”.

 

So here I stand at the foot of The Cross;

and I

Isaiah 43:19 (KJV)

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

 

A New Thing

A New Thing

 

I’ve applied all that I know,

but neutralized has been my flow,

stuck here in the wilderness, trying to move forward, and of my own will, trying to let go.

 

What used to work for me in the past, doesn’t work for me anymore,

so it’s this new thing that I now look for,

my God said: even in the wilderness He will provide an exit door.

 

In the midst of the desert, He will provide a river,

but in the meantime; I must walk by faith because the enemy is constantly in my ear saying: on His promises, God will never deliver,

then I tell the enemy all that my God has already done, then he begin to shake and shiver.

 

Then he turn and run away as I begin to gloriously sing,

to the one and only Lord of every Lord, King of every King,

but the enemy always return to me again with his enticing lies, and maybe even a bit of bling,

but even here in the wilderness; in this dry desert; I will not eat off of his plate, because I wait, I seek

As The Attacks Intensify!!!

 

Today, January 15th 2018 my wife and I received a report; “2” words no-one ever wants to hear, “Breast Cancer”; and though some did, neither my wife or I have shed a tear,

we have overcome so much together; so,

we know,

even in this, our God is near,

even,

 

As The Attacks Intensify!!!

 

We have put on the armor of God, and for this battled we have been prepared,

by the stripes of Jesus Christ we were healed, this is what the Living Word of God has declared.

 

Just a few years back,

against this “Cancer” attack;

it’s with my mother that I walked hand in hand,

and through God’s Word, His Love, His grace we thwarted what the enemy had planned,

 

now here we go again,

ready to prove to the enemy that it’s in God’s word in which we believe, it’s on God’s word upon which we stand.

 

As The Attacks Intensify!!!

 

My faith in my Lord grow stronger and stronger,

it’s through Him that we’re empowered with fortitude and tenacity; if the battle is short lived, even if it last longer.

 

In 2017 the attacks were none stop; financially,

relationally;

now their growing in intensity,

the devil just don’t see,

we know; he can’t destroy what The Heavenly Father said will be,

so as for me and my house, we’re saturated in the Peace of God, and His Serenity.

 

We know that the victory is already ours, in the here and now, and in the sweet bye and bye,

we know that before the enemy speak, he’s already a lie;

even,

 

As The Attacks Intensify!!!

 

Thank You Jesus…

More Than Anything Else!!!

Acts 4:13 (KJV)

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

 

Psalm 91:1 (KJV))

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

 

More Than Anything Else!!!

 

The presence of my God in every area of my life,

the power of His living word flowing freely, from the depths of my spirit, through my lips cutting the enemy deeply, as would a double edge knife.

 

This,

this above all else is my desire,

so, of the daily seeking of more of God’s presence, I will not tire.

 

While the majority continue to go hard after diamonds, gold and a prestigious name,,

I will continue to stand in the minority; unapologetically; and with no shame.

 

Though there’s times when the temptation for me to follow along,

is stronger than strong.

 

But, I know The Light, which is even stronger; and, can provide for me the power to overcome those enticing temptations,

and the ability to use godly wisdom in all situations.

 

And it’s this that I want;

 

More Than Anything Else!!!

 

Because in the presence of God is fullness of joy,

though Satan has a host of demons ready to deploy,

ready to steal, kill and destroy.

 

Thankfully there’s a secret place, and it’s found in the shadow of The Most High,

I’m learning; everything outside of this place is a smokescreen setup by the devil himself, who works nothing but deceit; he’s the father of every lie,

therefore, everything within me that’s hindering me from receiving more; “Must Die”.

 

I desire more of the presence of my God,

 

More Than Anything Else!!!

 

Lamentations 3:21-26 (KJV)

21) This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.

22) It is of The Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed,

because His compassions fail not.

23) They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness.

24) The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.

25) The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him.

26) It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of The Lord.

 

 

 

 

                                      FREEDOM!!!                   20171030_172215.jpg

Eternal freedom was given to us at The Cross on Calvary over two thousand years ago,

but; the journey to full understanding of the power in this freedom is a long, dark and winding road, which at times causes us to forget what we know,

the rains fall, the winds blow,

our enemy is ever present trying to steal freedoms righteous glow,

trying to distract us from moving in freedoms perpetual flow,

though;

 

Freedom is a state of mind,

freedom will cause the eyes to open of those who are blind,

freedom is peace, even when the situations of life are unkind,

while the enemy wants us bound, freedom has the power to unbind.

 

This is a freedom which is not easy to receive,

a freedom which is almost too good to believe,

especially when the devil is constantly in our ear speaking words meant for nothing other than to deceive,

it’s in The Word of our God that this freedom is found, so it’s to The Word of our God is to what we must cleave.

 

In this freedom is found the courage to be me,

not the me that others think I should be,

but the me that my God has called, chosen and predestined me to be,

this freedom enables me to see,

not just naturally,

but also the things concerning me spiritually;

not just the here and now, but also those things lasting throughout all eternity.

 

Monetarily, this freedom don’t cost us a thing,

though it does require us, to, on this long road, through it all, to faith tightly cling,

it does require us to leave certain things, that on this road, we just can’t bring,

but it also delivers unto us a self worth that’s wrapped up in God’s purpose; not this world’s riches and bling,

weather rich or poor this freedom enables us, that, to our Lord we continue to gloriously sing.

 

This freedom supplies us with the knowing that “ALL” things are working together for our good,

it assures us, that we won’t miss a blessing for being out of place, for not standing in patient obedience like we should,

this is not a freedom to satisfy our own selfish will, but this freedom empowers us to really do what Jesus would.

 

Unfortunately, this freedom is not manifested over night,

it take time to realize; we don’t have to fight,

the battle is mine says The Lord, and when we wait on The Lord to do it, we can rest assured that it’s done right,

knowing that when we continue to move forward in obedience, we will see freedoms light.

 

But not before, at times; taking a step forward only to take two steps back,

so tenacity,

is a key,

so keep pushing forward believing that God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness, and His hand is never slack,

remember, this is not a sprint, or a quick lap around the track,

and there’s always something to learn when we must, for a season, suffer lack.

 

Who The Son sets free is free indeed,

and freedom was offered to us all when Jesus laid His life down, when our sins caused Him to bleed,

our Savior has already planted the seed,

now we must be willing to follow His lead.

 

It’s ours already,

but we have a responsibility to walk in obedience, and to walk steady;

and even when we fall short, God’s grace and mercy is there to lift us up and set us back on the road to full manifestation of this eternal,

God given

 

Freedom!!!
