WHEN SCRIPTURE & SCIENCE AGREE…

God has given us the responsibility to control our emotions.

WHY THE MARK OF THE BEAST WON’T BE A CHIP, BAR CODE OR TATTOO…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

shopping-148192_1280 Quick and to the point…

Even those who don’t believe in God have heard of it. The mark of the beast. The ‘mark’ that many will submit to showing that they have rejected Christ and accepted the antichrist.

Revelation 13:16 (KJV)

16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark IN their right hand, or IN their foreheads:

The purpose of this quick post isn’t to discuss whether or not the church will still be on earth when it takes place. But, what will it actually be. This could be a long post, but I’m going to keep it short so you can digest it…and pray about it.

There are those who talk about a chip being implanted, a bar code that will be required for buying, selling and living everyday life. There are others who speak of a literal…

THE BLESSING IN WHEN SOMEONE IS TRYING TO ‘USE YOU’…

Please don’t forget this…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1492609663880.

The Pharisees, scribes, and religious leaders were constantly trying to trap and accuse Jesus. Many times that was their sole reason for going to the synagogue when they knew He was there (Mark 3:1-6).

In Luke 14 Jesus was at the home of one of the rulers of the Pharisees. You didn’t get into the home of a ruler without an invitation. This was an invitation only ‘event’ which is confirmed in verse 7 of this chapter ( So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them…). There was also a man with extreme swelling of his arms and legs (dropsy) there, but why was he invited too? Why was this man who was looked down upon invited to the ruler’s home? My thought is they were using him just so see if Jesus would heal him on…

MAY THIS ALWAYS REMIND YOU OF GOD’S LOVE FOR YOU…

The lyrics to my wife’s single, “Thanks FOR LOVING ME TOO” are a beautiful walk through that poetically gives examples of God’s love.

Noah’s family You saved
It rained forty days
The Hebrews were slaves
and Moses you raised
to lead them to that land
you promised Abraham.
You called him Your friend.
You showed Your love to him

Your Word tells me that Your love is so true.
I wanna thank You Lord for loving me too.

So many people You healed
Five thousand bellies You filled
A woman in adultery one day
You sent her accusers away
She stood alone with You Lord
You said go and sin no more
You forgave her sins
You do the same for all men.

Your word tells me that Your love is so true
And I want to thank You Lord for loving me too.

Thanks for loving me,
Thanks for loving me too. (Repeat)

Thanks for loving me too
When I acted like a fool You saw me through
When at times, I get caught up in the world
You let me know…I’m still your girl.

Thanks for loving me,
Thanks for loving me too. (Repeat)

Thanks for loving me too
Your Word tells me, Your love is true.
You’ve shown your love, since the world begun
In the fullness of time…You gave me your Son.

Thanks for loving me
Thanks for loving me too. (Repeat)

Thank you Lord, for loving me. (Repeat with ad lib)

Thank you Lord,
For loving me…(Repeat with ad lib)

I pray that the lyrics and music always remind you of our God’s love for you.

WOULD YOU ‘REALLY’ DO MORE IF YOU HAD MORE?

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1487257102228.jpg

What if God gave you unlimited financial resources…what would you do?

What good would you do?

Who would you help?

What if God gave you a voice…a platform to speak to the world?

What would you say?

What causes would you speak out for?

How responsible would you be?

What if you had unlimited free time?

No job to report to?

No clock to punch?

What would you do with your time?

How would you spend it?

You can tell what you WOULD DO THEN by WHAT YOU’RE DOING with the financial resources you have now, whether it’s little or much.

Even if you’re living paycheck to paycheck, you have the means to help someone in need…your $5 gift or meal can change someone’s world.

You can tell by what you’re doing with your platform now.

What do you say? What don’t you say. What you post or publish? Which…

ARE YOU FOLLOWING GOD FROM A DISTANCE?

BE BLESSTIFIED!

chalkboard-2123965_19201315232428.jpgMatthew 26:58  (NKJV)

58 But Peter followed Him at a distance to the high priest’s courtyard. And he went in and sat with the servants to see the end.

Even though Peter followed from a distance…he still followed. Even though he denied Him, he didn’t forsake Him.

Be encouraged even if you aren’t where you should be in your relationship with God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

If you have allowed distractions to create distance between you and God.

Even though you may be following from a distance…

Not praying as much as you should.

Not reading His Word as much as you should.

Not attending worship as much as you should.

Caught up in a distracting weakness.

Just discrouaged, but…

At least you haven’t forsaken Him.

Jesus restored Peter and He is anxious to restore you too.

John 21:15-17 (NKJV)

15 So when they had eaten breakfast…

WHEN WE MISMANAGE OUR BLESSINGS…

Remember when Yeshua fed over 5000 people with just two fish and five loaves of bread that they had more left over than what they had in the beginning…
Matthew 14:13-21 (NKJV)

13 When Jesus heard it, He departed from there by boat to a deserted place by Himself. But when the multitudes heard it, they followed Him on foot from the cities. 14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick. 15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food.”

16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

17 And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”

18 He said, “Bring them here to Me.” 19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. 20 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.

The LORD performed this miracle so they would have over flow from what seemed to be not enough.

So many times in our lives we may feel that we don’t have ‘enough’.

But, we need to…

  1. Be thankful for what God has provided.
  2. Pray for the wisdom to effectively manage what He had provided.
  3. Have the discipline to manage what God has provided according to His wisdom.

WHEN YOU CAN’T SMELL YOURSELF STINK ANYMORE…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1488387186094.jpgOne of the things that reminds me that our bodies and our flesh are temporary is when we stink. As good as you may smell right now, think of the effort we as humans have to put into avoiding smelling bad.

We have to bathe regularly…

Brush and floss our teeth…

Shampoo our hair…

Apply deodorants…

Perfumes…

Colognes…

We as humans have to work at smelling good. Whether we admit it or not, we all smell bad sometimes.

Sometimes if we have been working hard…been sick…or whatever, we can begin to smell unpleasant…YOU STINK.

Have you ever been in need of ‘freshening up’ and were actually able to smell yourself?

You may have raised up your arm, caught a whiff of your own breath…or whatever and said to yourself , “Wow! I stink!

What’s interesting is that if you don’t get an opportunity to bathe soon, you won’t notice the…

5 CATASTROPHIC IMPLICATIONS OF WHEN CHRISTIANS ‘CUSS’…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

wp-1480446274126.jpg

I once heard a man tell his son in the barbershop, “Son, you aren’t old enough to ‘cuss’. When are you old enough to cuss?

America is obsessed with profanity. The enemy has convinced people it makes…

Words more powerful…

Jokes more funny…

Arguments more convincing…

Authority more authoritative…

Good parents will allow coaches to ‘cuss’ their children to ‘get the best out of them’.

People who deal with those who use profanity claim you have to ‘speak their language’ to get through to them.


Our movies, television shows, comedians, songs and sometimes even those in authority reinforce a culture of profanity.


God said very clearly that we are to not allow corrupt, unwholesome, coarse language come from our mouths…

Ephesians 4:29  (NKJV)

29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

He said…
