Stand with me on these Scriptures:

Psalm 142:7 ( bring my soul out of prison… )
Psalm 31:17 ( don’t let me be ashamed… )
Psalm 102:13 ( …have mercy…for the time to favor her…)
Psalm 73:24 ( …leading to a glorious destiny )
Psalm 25:5 (…all day long I put my hope in you )

Why is restoration 7-fold a go to for mistreatment?

Whenever I get into Christian circles, the topic turns to getting back what the enemy stole from them, and it’s ALWAYS a 7-fold restoration.

Is this according to the Word of God?

The Bible says we don”t get what we ask for if we prayer amiss, or incorrectly. (Scripture paraphrased).  So Since God and His Word are one, if we say the wrong thing, I don’t think we’ll be seeing it anytime soon.

God is like a symphony, if the instruments aren’t tuned to the right harmony, you wont hear the symphony.

The Bible breaks down these specifics on stolen property:

*Case #1

Leviticus 5:14-16 – if someone mishandles or steals property decided to the Lord

Restoration is – full value of that thing plus 1/5 added to it.

*Case #2

Leviticus 6:1-5 – if someone lies about protecting/keeping/receiving your belongings or has extorted them

Restoration is – the objects that were in question plus 1/5 added to it.

*Case #3

Exodus 22:1 – if someone steals your property and destroys or sells it

Restoration is – four or five times the value of it.

*Case #4

Exodus 22:4 – but if your property it found on the person

Restoration is – double that property.

*Case #5

Exodus 22:7 – if you give something to someone to keep and someone steals it from them

Restoration is – also double.

*Case #6

Exodus 22:14 – if one borrows something that gets destroyed

Restoration is – full value of that thing.

*Case #7

Proverbs 6:30-31 – if a person who is poor and starving and steals your stuff  for food

Restoration is – seven times the value of what was stolen.

Everyone claims sevenfold, but other amount are actually more accurate. God is only obligated to keep His Word and if we misapply it, we wont get the results we are looking for. Know His Word and apply it correctly to your life and situation and He will bless. Tell me, have you ever received your sevenfold yet?

The Number 1 stolen book!!

It’s ironic.

But the number one stolen book each year is “The HOLY BIBLE”.

From bookstores, Christian or not, to libraries and hotels, the Bible is the most stolen book.

How can this be…and why?

Many pass out Bibles for free and some hotels stock Bibles in every room. They may not be the fanciest kind, as the most expensive can cost from $0 to up to $130,000. Some even receive them as gifts!

What’s on your Ipod?

ipodIs everything you are doing reflecting the glory of God on your life? If another person listened to your Ipod, would what they think of you?

Christians would do well to monitor what they feed in their souls. Whatever you feed your self is what come out of you.

Is the music glorifying God? Uplifting? Positive? Encouraging? Or is it depressing, negative, or degrading?

Many listen to the beats first and decide if they like a song. The lyrics to a song should be carefully considered before even attaching to the beats, because one can be deceived if he or she doesn’t.  One can be lead astray from the truth of God by following a beat. Unfortunately, even some Christian songs have a line or two out of the whole song that does not line up with God’s word. Examine each word, each concept, each picture being painted by every song you listen to and determine if it is benefiting or detracting from living the best life you can for the Lord.

Not everyone can do something ‘cold turkey’, so give yourself a realistic goal. Take a week a examine a few songs each day and the final test question would be: If I were standing in front of Jesus, would he approve of this song? Also: and why 0r why not? If He would not, then get rid of it. You do not want anything that not only holds your spirit back from living a godly life, but would turn the Lord away from you, to bless you , because He is holy and mr satan legalise will bring up something to Him to prevent your blessing.

Are you a Princess? (Or Prince)

There really isn’t one meaning to the word ‘princess’.

Some people call others a ‘princess’, which can have a positive or negative connation.

There are 3 main definitions for that word ‘princess’ or a ‘prince’.

1. Earthly Royalty

2. Spiritual Royalty

3. Common Term/Label

To be a prince or princess in the earth realm means that a person was birthed by blood or married into royalty.

In the Spirit realm, those that are the true children of God are the brothers and sisters to the Prince of Peace, the firstborn.  This would make those brothers and sisters, princes and princesses respectively.

As a common term, a person can label a young girl or woman a princess and mean it either positively or negatively.  The good meaning is that a girl or  woman behaves and acts in a manner that princesses usually carry.  The evil meaning is that the girl or woman is misbehaving in a demanding, spoiled, undesired way.  Usually if a young boy or man is called a prince its meant in a good light, one of unusual kindness, generosity, and / or chivalry.

If you are saved by Jesus Christ, the you are a child of God, an heir to the promises, a prince or princess to His Kingdom.  In knowing this, one must also carry the conduct of a princess or prince.  One should study the habits and mannerisms of royalty in order to operate properly in God’s Kingdom. Here are 5 key words to consider in behaving like royalty and thriving in the Kingdom of God:

1. giving

2. helping

3. caring

4. self-controlled

5. etiquette

 

Is Kissing Fine for Christian Singles??

Image

Many are NOT going to like what I have to say.

And that’s ok…I’m not addressing this to them.  Those that are really seeking the Lord and are wanting to live holy will listen to what to Spirit has to say.

Is kissing ok for a single Christian to do?

This is not a quick answer.  Of course there is an answer, but the answer will not give you insight to what’s behind the answer. So let’s explore the reasoning.

All physical intimacy was created and comes from the Lord.  The Bible says all things come from Him and there wasn’t anything that was created that didn’t come from Him (John).  When we look at what God created, we must look at its function.  God created everything to has a specific function, a purpose, a role.

What role does kissing have?

When we kiss, what happens? We are really feeling the person we kiss.  We want to kiss some more, hug more, touch more, do more…Why is that?  It’s because God creates anything to go beyond, go deeper, go more intimate.  So when we kiss we want to do more than that.  Kissing can ultimately lead to the best part of intimacy, SEX.

Now, is that a BAD thing?  No it isn’t. God CREATED sex.  So the One who made it, has a purpose for it.  God wanted us to have sex.  Sex with our spouse, ONLY.  The Bible says to not live in temptation, not live in uncleanliness, not live in inordinate affection.

So, are we to stop kissing?

kissing 2

Ask yourself, can you stop yourself from feeling sexual? No, you cannot. It’s impossible because God created it to make you feel that way.  And anything you feel and desire and visualize, you will eventually do.

Think about this:

Each person you KISS and do NOT marry, you just kissed someone else’s spouse.

Eventually, when you do eventually meet and marry your spouse,  you will have those memories with you in your marriage…

5 Reasons Why I don’t own a TV Set

I have not owned a TV set in years.  I don’t even watch anyone else’s box often.  It’s a rare occasion to find me in front of the lighted box!

As a Christian, and a conscious individual, I cannot see how anyone can stand watching it for any period of time.  Here’s why:

1. Do you have trouble concentrating on anything for long periods of time?  If you watch TV, it may be becuase of the way the programs are set up.  Every 7 minutes or so, a set of commercials are interjected into the program you are watching.  This breaks a level of continuous focus and actually trains or conditions your mind to operate under distractions in life.

2. Once you turn on a tv and settle down in front of it, your mind goes from alpha waves ( active/concious ) to beta waves ( sedentary /unconcious ) in less than a minute.  This puts a person in a very suggestive unconcious receptive position, less likely to challenge anything it sees and records, especially since its only ‘TV’.

3. There are subliminal messages in EVERY commercial and TV program.  Think this is not true?  See the below clip for proof. Just think about the bigger picture: There are two entities that are given dominion through God’s gift to man, either the Lord himself, or the devil.  If the Lord is not in authority over a thing, then note that the devil is. If he is, then he will promote his agenda, so this shouldn’t really be surprising.


4. Have you ever noticed when your favorite show cuts to a commercial the volume goes up? No, this is not your imagination, it’s the commercials blaring their wares! This was such a complaint, that the FCC hjad to pass the CALM Act, in 2010, which stand for the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation,  This will take effect in December 2012 to make sure the volume doesn’t need to be adjusted anymore.

5. Are you noticing what is on TV in this age?  What things that are now considered ‘entertaining’ while just a few decades ago would have been an outrage?  There is a LOT of demoralizing, desenstizing, and degrading things on the channels today.  Cursing, Arguing, Disrespect, Dishonor, and a borage of ads for medications that make you worse than the symptoms they heal, just to name a few!

In examining and realizing these truths, we should be guard what we watch and hear and stay alert.  Deception only has victory when its unexpected.  That’s why Jesus said to stay awake and pray…

Give me a good book, like the BIBLE,  and some tea over television any day!

Sinner’s Prayer:

Dear Lord & Father, You are the Creator of all things and I know you created me. But I recognize I am a sinner through Adam's Fall and you sent your only Son, Jesus Christ to live, die and be raised from the dead for me. I repent of my sins and renounce all evil works and serving of other, lower, and lesser gods before thee. Come into me life and cleanse me by your Blood. Make me whole and well by your Holy Spirit. I now desire to live for you. Let your Holy Spirit guide me in all things. In the Name of Jesus Christ, AMEN!

Scripture of the Month-March

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Things to consider:

Jesus never charged for His Sermons, Preaching, Healing, etc...why should we put His Anointing on books, tapes, and cds, and charge people for it? I recall How angry Jesus was when the leaders of the Church of His time altered the purpose of the temple and made it a business. Shouldn't we too, be afraid to do the same? UPDATE: a minister pointed out, He didn't have to because His own people were financing Him. They were wealthy...
