Time Will Reveal…

Its Amazing to Me how people can come up with ALL types of excuses or reasons to justify their Sinning or Wrong Doing. For some reason many of Us seem to think that Jesus’ dying on the Cross gave Us FREE-REIGN to Sin as much as We like and then simply ask for Forgiveness and ALL will be ok and BEAUTIFUL with the World. This is So far from the TRUTH! Yes, its TRUE that GOD Forgives Us Our Sins but HE also tells Us in HIS Word, ‘Flee from Sin…Run from it…Keep as far away from Sin as You can…The wages of Sin is Death…,’ this to Me means that We should not Sin. And, Yes, We are ALL Sinners…Born into Sin…We have ALL Sinned and Fallen short but after We ask for Forgiveness of those Sins We are to keep away from those Sins that We have asked Frogiveness for. GOD LOVES Us and wants the best for US, HIS Children, but if We continue to choose Sin HE will have no choice but to discipline Us through HIS LOVE for Us. When We Sin or continue to choose Sin GOD never leaves Us, HE allows Us to have to deal with the consequences of Our Sins so that We will learn from them and hopefully, through Our ‘Consequence Learning’ We will choose to stay away from Sin. It is never GOD that leaves Us, it is Us that steps away from HIM to do as We please, by choosing Sin over Fleeing from Sin.

There are many that choose Sin and actually ask for Forgiveness during the actual committing of the Sin. Talk about CONTRADICTION! Thats Man for you, right?! How can One know that an act is Wrong in GOD’s Eyes, continue to take part in the act and ask Forgiveness ALL at the same time? I guess that individual feels that Sinning in this way makes the Sin a ‘Little White Sin.’ (What the Hell…)

My writing this post comes from reading more on the Bishop Eddie Long case and thinking of ALL of the individuals out there that have Sinned and are Sinning and might feel that their DARKNESS won’t have LIGHT Shined upon IT…Oh, My Friend, the time for Your Sin to be revealed is coming, just as everyone’s Sin in days past have been revealed. Be assured that if You have Sinned or are Sinning GOD will not and does not allow Sins to go unpunished. Whether We have a feeling that Our Sin is justified because it ‘Feels Good to Us’ or ‘Our Sin is out of Revenge or Anger’ or ‘We have asked Forgiveness during Our Sinning thinking that makes it Ok’ or ‘We have a LOFTY idea of who We are because of Our title or status’ or ‘We feel that the World owes Us something,’ the Sin that We commit will be Revealed and GOD will allow Us to deal with the consequences until We learn from those Sins, no matter how long Our learning or disciplining takes. 

My Friend, We have ALL Sinned and most of Us will continue to Sin, for One reason or another but GOD is continually calling to Us to choose to ‘Flee from Sin…’ so that HE won’t have to discipline Us and so that We won’t have to deal with those consequences that We Truly don’t want to have to deal with from the start.

I’m continually checking Myself …What are You doing to Flee from Sin? Or are You choosing to Sin because You feel You have Free Reign to do it?

STRONGER THAN DEATH

STRONGER THAN DEATH

 

-‘One has to find something in their Life that they Stand for that is Stronger than DEATH and with that…DEATH will
have no Power over them…’

                                                                                                -Otis Moss, Jr.

 

Sitting amongst the congregation during Easter Morning Services on yesterday and listening to the message delivered by Otis Moss, Jr. and hearing him speak on the topic of finding something in Your Life that is ‘Stronger than DEATH,’ which was a Metaphor for Christ’s being crucified for Living a Life of TRUTH and Righteousness and speaking Words that were against what many Believed, then Arising from the Dead after Living a Life of TRUTH and Righteousness, doing His Father’s Work and that being His ‘SOMETHING’ that He stood for that was Stronger than DEATH and that which in turn led Him to His DEATH upon the Cross, I began to think about what is it that I STOOD for in My Life that, to Me, is ‘Stronger than DEATH’ that keeps Me going or doing that SOMETHING no matter what opposition I come against…

As Mr. Moss continued speaking he spoke about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his battle for Civil Rights  and Equality for ALL and how this battle was Dr. King’s SOMETHING that was ‘Stronger than DEATH’ in his Life. During Dr. King’s battle for the Equal Rights of ALL he was met with Great opposition from those that did not want or Believe the same things he did and from those that did not WANT to hear the TRUTH. Mr. Moss spoke about Dr. King’s imprisonment and how he would not give up the battle even when DEATH was staring him in the face…

As I continued to listen to the message the idea crossed My mind that the DEATH doesn’t have to be the DEATH where Our Lives come to an End, which is what Mr. Moss was speaking on, I thought about the fact that it could be the DEATH of a Friendship, Relationship, Partnership, Union or any form of ‘coming together’ that comes to an End due to One’s standing for something that they will not give up on because it is Right,
Moral or TRUE, even when those around don’t agree and criticize them for it…

After much thought about it I came to the conclusion that the SOMETHING in My Life that I stand for that is ‘Stronger than DEATH,’ in whatever form it may come in, is LOVE, TRUTH and INTEGRITY. No matter how others might tear apart what I might Write, Speak or Believe, I simply refuse, just like Jesus, Dr. King or anyone else that stood for SOMETHING, to back down off of it. And, just like Jesus and Dr. King, it is not
My TRUTH that I stand on or for, it is GOD’s TRUTH and that cannot be CHALLENGED, no matter what others Believe or say…

 

My Friend…My Reader, ‘What is it that You STAND for in Your Life that is ‘Stronger than DEATH?’’ If there is Nothing, give it some thought…Then STAND Up…And, You will no longer FEAR DEATH of any kind…

WHAT?

WHAT?

-‘Sometimes LOVE isn’t Enough…’

-Various Voices

‘And now I will show You the Most Excellent way. If I speak in the tongues of Men and of Angels, but have not LOVE, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom ALL mysteries and ALL knowledge, and if I have FAITH that can move Mountains, but have not LOVE, I am nothing. If I give ALL that I
possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not LOVE, I gain nothing…

LOVE is Patient, LOVE is Kind. It does not Envy, it does not Boast, it is not Proud. It is not Rude, it is not Self-Seeking, it is not easily Angered, it keeps no record of Wrongs. LOVE does not Delight in Evil but rejoices with the TRUTH. It Always Protects, Always Trusts, Always Hopes, Always Perseveres…

LOVE NEVER FAILS!

And now these three remain: FAITH, HOPE and LOVE. But the Greatest of these is LOVE…’
1 Corinthians 13: 1-7 & 13

And, they say that ‘Sometimes LOVE isn’t Enough…,’ I beg to differ and I fail to believe that LOVE isn’t Enough, no matter the circumstance or situation, because…

It’s LOVE that Created Us. It’s LOVE that brought Us through. It’s LOVE that wakes Us up every day. It’s LOVE that allows Us to be Forgiven. It’s LOVE that compels Us to reach out to others that need a helping Hand. It’s LOVE that causes Us to feel for those going through trials. It’s LOVE that keeps Us Hoping for and Knowing that there is ‘Something Better.’ It’s LOVE that keeps GOD mindful of Us. It’s LOVE that delivered Jesus
to Us, GOD in the form of Man, to be a ‘Living Example’ of how We should live. It’s LOVE that hung upon the Cross and became SIN itself, to save Us from Hell. It’s LOVE that keeps GOD from destroying this World of Ours and HIS giving us ‘Chance after Chance’ to get it right, by turning to HIM. It’s LOVE that Defeats Evil each and every time, bringing the Light to the Darkness…

No matter how You see things or what You believe, if You simply take a Moment and look beyond the LIE, You will see that it’s ALL LOVE…The Greatest of them ALL! The ONLY thing there Truly is! The ONLY thing We should be living for…

My Friend…My Reader…The ONLY time that LOVE isn’t Enough is if One is Selfish, they have Fallen for the LIE of Man or if One is in LOVE with the World…


‘LOVE is Always Enough…Ask GOD.’

GOD…ALWAYS!

GOD…ALWAYS!

My Friend…My Reader…No matter what is going on in Your Life…No matter what things seem to be in the Natural…No matter how You feel about Your situation…No matter how much You don’t have…No matter how Crazy the World and Society tend to get…No matter how lonely You feel…No matter if its Hard to Believe…No matter if Friends are nowhere to be found…No matter if the Money is scarce…No matter if You are Afraid…No matter if You feel that LOVE is non-existent…No matter if You are weak of Body…No matter if circumstances don’t seem to be turning around for the BETTER for You…No matter if You can’t See or Imagine a ‘Way Out’ of Your Darkness…No matter if the Light is Invisible to You at the Present time…No matter how Your Heart aches…

ALWAYS…ALWAYS…ALWAYS know that…

GOD IS ALWAYS THERE…HE never leaves You…HE never forsakes You…HE is Always holding You in HIS Hands…

ALWAYS…

Keep the FAITH…My, Friend.

KNOWLEDGE/KNOW THE LEDGE

KNOWLEDGE/KNOW THE LEDGE

                “Then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of GOD. For the Lord Gives wisdom and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding…”

                                                                                                            -Proverbs 2:5-7

                There are many people that confuse being smart or being knowledgeable with being educated through study in a particular field or having attended a certain school. Allowing their degrees and accolades to give them a sense of ‘I am intelligent due to the fact I have studied in the field of (You fill in the blank) and I obtained a degree in (fill in the blank), making me smart and knowledgeable.’ I understand that the above is definitely a source of gaining knowledge and everyone with the opportunity to gain knowledge through study in a particular field, at any institution of higher learning, should utilize the opportunity but this is not the knowledge I speak of here. I am speaking of the knowledge that one gains through the fear of GOD, through studying HIS word and the belief in His existence.

            GOD offers us the knowledge of life and the paths we should take to make this Earthly journey a worthwhile one and the knowledge to discern right from wrong. Yes, His word says that we should acquire an education so as to be knowledgeable of the operation of things created by man and the various processes of daily life, but more than that He says that we should seek the knowledge and wisdom that He offers because it is the knowledge that will lead you through life and to Eternal life with HIM in Heaven.

            So, I say… ‘Be knowledgeable and gain all of the knowledge you can but be mindful of the KNOWLEDGE that you give priority to because with that, you will Know the Ledge.’ GOD’s knowledge is the GREATEST KNOWLEDGE, superior to all other knowing.
