i can sense that things - people are not right--and in the midst of the Changes that are happening right now! They will fall off the bridge that we are crossing! This is not about those of us who are serious about our relationship with God, but those many that are casual with this Business of our Father!
We are Told to Daily Examine ourselves to see if we are in the Faith or out of it!
They call on Him for direction--for a blessing but will not release the earthly treasures to have FREE hands to take hold of His blessings! Don't they know they will lose all the time living this way!
So many are not strengthening their relationship with God through one with Jesus! Your relationship Is Your BLESSING!
See, you know better! He knows what you know of Him--too many are playing games with Him--not obeying Him--yet in public claiming to be His child! Your words do not match your actions! He knows your heart and what you speak is contradicting to what you say to Him. If YOU love HIM--You will obey HIM.
That is what Jesus said many many times! Seems simple enough to me. He gives direction to those that honestly ask--and here comes their flesh--trying to manipulate His Word and --thinking "well that is not what i want--that is not what i want to-do--that will not help me--i have my own plans!! I'll just add in what i want to do with what God told me to do and i'll get it all! "
AND As soon as they ADD to what He has spoken what they should do --AND how they should do it--when everything falls to nothing then here they come calling on HIM for help without speaking their wrongs and asking for forgiveness.
They turn right around and do it again! And you think He is going to be a part of this fleshy mess and arrogance! You are fooling yourself as to Who He is to us! See, right there is where you should see that you have not spent enough time with Him learning Who He really is.
It shows and it stinks! Truth telling for myself-as we are to examine ourselves Everyday!
Truth telling is what i am called to do--i cannot sit idly by and help people continue to tell themselves or others lies, create fleshy messes, patting you on the back saying ohhh it will be alright your excuses are valid! NO!
i will not help anyone cause themselves or others to fall into iniquity and say nothing about it! If you want to drag yourself down into the pit of jacked up messes and mazes go right ahead...
If you are comfortable lying to yourself, manipulating your own mind and heart--go right ahead. If you enjoy whining, and complaining about suffering for God's namesake then maybe you are not where you think you are! Get over it and cross the bridge!
And if anyone does not want to hear the truth-- keep moving toward the direction you are going in the opposite of Jesus.
He would say stop what you are doing and FOLLOW ME!
If the person did, fine--if they tried to give an excuse He spoke the truth about them and their situation to them but He never stopped walking in the direction that God set Him on. Who are you following again!?
It's in the book--read it! There were people that gave Him an excuse as to why they could not go His way--He kept right on His Way in the Divine plans set forth by the Father of us all.
Some already are living in hell--living apart from God is hell! Who wants to live in hell here on earth then live there for eternity?
NOT I said i!--anyone else?
If you belong to Jesus and are following Him, then you Must have the Holy Spirit Living in your heart. I hear from many people that really think they are saved and filled with the Holy Ghost--they are not--it would not be hard to obey Him if the Holy Spirit is living in them. They are living by Christian principles but they are not saved. Listen to those that claim to belong to Jesus-are they saying they are Saved or just living as Christians and following Christian principles? Examine yourselves!
So many people believe they can say they serve God and do what the world requires and that everything will be ok with it. God cannot be fooled nor will He be mocked.
Some people really better go to Him and see where they stand with Him--if i can see through the lies and foolishness that comes from the mouth which must come from the heart--how in the world do people think that God The ALL of ALLS cannot see and hear this!?
Who do they think they are fooling? Lord my Spirit pains for the people!
Trying to play with God--they are playing with satan!
These are a la carte Christians!
AND God is not an a La Carte God!
Lord Have Mercy!
And yes, of course I love all that He loves--but the truth is the truth for one and for all of His children. If I did not love Him i would never have the boldness to speak all this out to you--i would hide away scared of what any of you may think about me--but let me tell you this-- i don't.
I love what and who He loves. I do not wish to see any perish. The truth is in your house now--what say you!?
We are to Examine yourselves!! EVERYDAY!

Galatians 5:14-26 (Amplified Bible)
14For the whole Law [concerning human relationships] is [a]complied with in the one precept, You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself.(A)
15But if you bite and devour one another [in partisan strife], be careful that you [and your whole fellowship] are not consumed by one another.
16But I say, walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit]; then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of the flesh (of human nature without God).
17For the desires of the flesh are opposed to the [Holy] Spirit, and the [desires of the] Spirit are opposed to the flesh (godless human nature); for these are antagonistic to each other [continually withstanding and in conflict with each other], so that you are not free but are prevented from doing what you desire to do.
18But if you are guided (led) by the [Holy] Spirit, you are not subject to the Law.
19Now the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are immorality, impurity, indecency,
20Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit (factions, sects with peculiar opinions, heresies),
21Envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,
23Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [[b]that can bring a charge].
24And those who belong to Christ Jesus (the Messiah) have crucified the flesh (the godless human nature) with its passions and appetites and desires.
25If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit [c]we have our life in God, let us go forward [d]walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.]
26Let us not become vainglorious and self-conceited, competitive and challenging and provoking and irritating to one another, envying and being jealous of one another.
Galatians 3 - 1 "O YOU poor and silly and thoughtless and unreflecting and senseless Galatians! Who has fascinated or bewitched or cast a spell over you, unto whom--right before your very eyes--Jesus Christ (the Messiah) was openly and graphically set forth and portrayed as crucified?
2Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying the Law and doing its works, or was it by hearing [the message of the Gospel] and believing [it]? [Was it from observing a law of rituals or from a message of faith?]"
Romans 4 - 1 "[BUT] IF so, what shall we say about Abraham, our forefather humanly speaking--[what did he] find out? [How does this affect his position, and what was gained by him?]
2For if Abraham was justified ([a]established as just by acquittal from guilt) by good works [that he did, then] he has grounds for boasting. But not before God!"
