Confidence in the Truth vs Endorsements and Validation

Confidence in the Truth – Nobility of Mind

If you wait for someone who is heavily invested in a lie to tell you the real and effectual truth, you’ll be waiting a long time.

Stop waiting for big name endorsements. Have enough self-respect, integrity of character, nobility of mind, and due diligence to search out the truth for yourself and live by it.

Confidence in the Truth – Possess Value instead of Needing Validation

When you are desperate for validation, it just proves to others that you are needy because you don’t have anything valuable.
When the thorough gospel has been thoroughly rejected, we are not called to compromise and water down the gospel for acceptance, but to kick the dust off our feet and move on.
Let’s behave like we already have what is valuable, not like we need the enemy’s validation.

TRUTH OR LIE THURSDAYS 10.27.2016

Today is Truth or Lie Thursday! Inbox me your questions, doubts, issues, or beefs with the Bible or Christianity or Jesus Christ, and I won’t blast you but I’ll do some research and inbox you back with an answer that is (hopefully) good for you!

HOW DO WE RESPOND TO THE LGBT AGENDA?

I watched a video on the LGBT agenda …and it has me boiling… I work in a very liberal city and am confronted with various issues that affect that community and my own tolerance (or lack there of is tested). How do we as Christians deal with this group? They are getting sooooo bold… how do we do the same without judging???

Homosexuality is against nature, and its linked with selfishness and self worship as shown in Romans 1. The agenda has always been aggressive and violent, even since bible times. This goes back to the root of how most selfish self-worshippers spread homosexuality – thru violent sexual abuse. They cannot procreate, so they spread it thru aggression and violence and intimidation. So the lifestyle is generally spread by aggression.

Homosexuality is linked with sexual abuse by research.

A link to statistics on the lifestyle of homosexuals.

So even as far back as Genesis 19 you see the result of anti-love, it turns into aggressive hatred, and it calls saying what’s right “judgemental.”

 

Genesis 19

But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.

Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.

 

Why did all the homosexuals gather in Sodom “young and old” just to rape their guests?

 

 

Isn’t it funny how things never change?

 

But the homosexual spirit and the Anti-Christ spirit are related, because the Anti-Christ is a self-worshipper.

2 Timothy 2

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

 

The Bible even says that the Anti-Christ will have “no love of women… but will sacrifice to the God of forces” Does that mean he will be homosexual? He will magnify himself above all… Is that not self-worship, and anti-love – the basis of homosexuality?

 

Daniel 11

36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

 

However, we know that we are not to return evil for evil, and railing for railing. When someone gives us hate and lies, we give back truth and love. We are called to speak boldly, but to also speak the truth in love.

Our only way to deal with it is to first, demonstrate real love and self-sacrificial love by keeping our own covenants of marriage, and being faithful with our own children and families first. Selfish pleasure based fake love and aggressive selfish love becomes weaker in the presence of true covenant love in submission to God.

After that, just treat people like humans. Love them and speak the truth to them. If they receive truth, continue to give it. If they don’t, dust your feet off and move on. It’s the word of God that judges our actions, not us. So if people reject God’s judgements, they are rejecting Him. We don’t have to take it personal.

We also have to walk in the Holy Spirit’s power of deliverance, as well as healing, because many of the people in that lifestyle need healing from abuses and deliverance from demons that have entered into their broken spirits.

I don’t feel threatened by homosexuals, I’ve seen them get saved and turn their whole lives back to God. They’re just normal people who need love, healing, and a renewed mind. Jesus is more than able to give them everything they need.

As far as their agenda, we don’t fear man, and we don’t love our own lives even to the death. We overcome by the blood of the lamb, the word of our testimony, and not loving our lives even to the death (Revelations 12:11).

focus, diligence, and perseverance

Focus, Diligence, and Perseverance are the only attributes you need to get you to where you want to be in life. 
We all do these things very well, the problem is that sometimes we focus on the wrong visions, we’re diligent in the wrong plans, and we persevere towards the wrong goals.
Who has bewitched you? Who has distracted you? Who has deceived you? Get rid of those things and you will have nothing in between you and your goals except focus, diligence, and perseverance.

Lead by Humility and Grace

Leaders who can’t take and adjust to correction aren’t qualified to lead. Saul had an empty title with no oil. Don’t be a leader by force but by grace.

Judgement: the biblical response vs the political response

When judgement is coming, the biblical response is to fast, pray, and hide yourself from it with acts of righteousness, generosity, and prudence.

The political response is to double down on your arrogance and cast your lot with the lesser of two evils. Don’t trust in man, trust in God.

The Fear of the LORD

Proverbs 8 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil, Pride, and arrogance, the evil way, and the rebellious mouth.

Fearing the LORD is 1. to be aware of Gods Judgements on sin and God’s natural laws that govern His creation, and 2.  to alter our words and actions based on respect for God’s Judgements on sin and God’s natural laws that govern His creation.

Ancient & Modern Hypocrisy : the same

Guys will clown the Roman Catholic/institutional Church because of its historic pagan roots and its compromised, watered down version of Christianity to reach people.

But then when their fave hip hop artist pays homage to pagan roots and messages a compromised, watered down version of Christianity to reach people they be like “That’s Dope!”

#yallthesame #hypocrites

Why do people brag about what curse spreading, adultery spreading ungodly hypocrite singers, rappers, and artists do in the community but ignore what godly, blessing & obedience spreading ministries do in the community?

Don’t you realize that the curses and the sin you spread does more harm to the community than all the money you could give away could ever help?
