De-emphasizing Strength and Beauty

De-emphasizing Strength and Beauty – Exalting Wisdom over Youthful Lusts

The strength of men is natural. It leads to protection, economic growth, and athleticism. These things are natural and not sinful. But when they are overemphasized, it leads to greed and violence.

Roman/Babylon culture overemphasizes youthful strength, competition, and sports.

In the Kingdom of God and Hebrew Heart culture of a called out Congregation, we must de-emphasize strength and overemphasize the Fear of the Lord.

We must learn to give verbal praise and take pleasure when our young men fear the Lord and keep His commandments more than in their strength and athleticism.

Psalm 147:10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man. 11 The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

1 Timothy 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. [competition]

Mark 9:34 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.

35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

Doing this on purpose will help us be free from youthful lusts, the deceitfulness of sin and the corrupted world system.

The beauty of women is natural. It leads to procreation, family growth, and fashion. These things are natural and not sinful. But when they are overemphasized, it leads to lust and violence.

Roman/Babylon culture overemphasizes youthful beauty, sexuality and fashion.

In the Kingdom of God/Hebrew Heart culture of the Called Out Ecclesia, we must de-emphasize beauty and overemphasize the fear of the Lord.

We must learn to give verbal praise and take pleasure when our young women fear the Lord and keep his commandments more than in their beauty and fashion.

Proverbs 31:30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

1 Peter 3:3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

Doing this on purpose will help us be free from youthful lusts, the deceitfulness of sin and the corrupted world system.

Demons you LOVE, Demons you HATE

Trauma gives you the DEMONS you HATE.
Entertainment gives you the DEMONS you LOVE.
Both need to GET OUT in Jesus Name.

Healing and Deliverance comes from the KINGDOM OF JESUS!

But some of these demons will only come out if you have a lifestyle of prayer and fasting, mixed with obedience to His ways (true discipleship)!

Matthew 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Do we really think that YAH  just wants MORE SONGS instead of the FRUITS of REPENTANCE –  JUSTICE & RIGHTEOUSNESS?

Do we really think that YAH just wants MORE SONGS instead of the FRUITS of REPENTANCE – JUSTICE & RIGHTEOUSNESS?

Amos 5:23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.

24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.

Daniel 4:27 Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and BREAK OFF THY SINS BY RIGHTEOUSNESS, and thine INIQUITIES BY SHOWING MERCY TO THE POOR; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity.

Luke 19:8 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the HALF OF MY GOODS IS GIVEN TO THE POOR; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I RESTORE HIM FOURFOLD.
9 And Jesus said unto him, THIS DAY IS SALVATION COME to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
10 For the Son of man is come to SEEK and to SAVE that which was lost.

Repent and Reconnect!

Family has been fragmented by modern culture and entertainment. Manly leadership has been broken down by sin and feminism.

Families aren’t connected. The only tribes we really have is our entertainment sports teams or our idolatrous frats/sororities.

Even Believers barely fellowship or have a real culture of discipleship. It’s all about showtime and social media. People don’t participate in doing life together.

Reconnect!

You can put on a show for the Stage and the Screen and the Keyboard… but Family, Fellowship and Discipleship PROVES out who you really are.

When you see the signs of the times – it’s time to make sure you are in fellowship daily “WITH THOSE who call on the Lord with a pure heart”

Malachi 3: 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Luke 1: 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

To the Young Talented Christian : Childhood and Youth Are Vanity

Being young talented and cute is very beneficial, and actually to your advantage in American hollywood/hip hop/Greco Roman performance-image based culture.

But over here in the kingdom of God we don’t need more kid actors with young dumb cute talent… we actually value maturity, wisdom, growth, faithfulness, and good fruit.

We don’t mind having jobs, keeping marriage covenants, raising godly children, building and serving churches… We press toward the mark and grow up into stability and maturity. Listen up, Grow up, and yes we need your voice but please speak for God and not for yourself!

Ecclesiastes 11
9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.
10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.

One Way to Heal Depression and Low Self-Esteem: TURN OFF THE SCREEN

One of the most untold curses of ungodly entertainment and media is that it is purposefully designed and crafted to fuel and create unrealistic desires, discontentment, comparison, and covetousness.

Many many people could heal their low-self esteem and depression simply by TURNING OFF THE SCREEN and denying the manipulators and marketers access to their soul. Get back into your actual real life and shut down the fantasies. You’ll get a part of your mind back that you never knew was gone. Try it for a month.

Does God Desire “Christian Entertainment”?

Does God Desire “Christian Entertainment?”

Entertainment is to hold something in your mind. God calls us to hold the Word in our mind.
See Colossians 3 and Ephesians 5

Entertainment is also hospitality and hosting fellowship at your house. God wants leaders to be lovers of hospitality.
See 1 Peter 4 and 1 Timothy 1

However iniquity, pride and violence is entertainment we should avoid. These are rooted in the sinful heart of man. Talent worship, beauty worship, and merchandising the Holy Spirit is from the influence of Lucifer. That’s the type entertainment we should avoid.
See Ezekiel 28 and Matthew 15 and Acts 12
