Pride Keeps you Away from Humility

Pride is the iniquity that keeps you away from the godly disciple makers, elders, or pastors that God is telling you to follow, learn from, and submit yourself to.

Pride is the iniquity that keeps you following after coolness, selfishness, vanity, entertainment, relevance, and useless puff-up head knowledge.

But God is not mocked… you will reap EXACTLY and ONLY what you sow into. Listen to He that speaks from Heaven!

John 3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be GIVEN HIM FROM HEAVEN.

One of the most popular forms of iniquity is pride. This is because it can disguise itself as two very popular things: “Coolness” for men & “Vanity” for women.

Don’t be fooled: these are forms of iniquity! Iniquities are Satans tools that he uses to open the doors of your heart for full blown sins and transgressions against the Laws of YAH.

Choose Obedience and Order over coolness, vanity, hipness, independence, haughtiness, or any other forms of pride. It could save your life!

It’s time to Stop Following Novices, Singers, Musicians, and Influencers

It’s time to stop following the “Cool” people that don’t know where they are going.

Its time to stop following the “Influencers” who are full of pride, iniquity, and are really just confused and deceived.

Its time to start following the WORD.

These quotes are from John Cooper from Skillet:

“…singers and musicians are good at communicating emotion and feeling. We create a moment and a vehicle for God to speak. However, singers are not always the best people to write solid bible truth and doctrine. Sometimes we are too young, too ignorant of scripture, too unaware, or too unconcerned about the purity of scripture and the holiness of the God we are singing to. Have you ever considered the disrespect of singing songs to God that are untrue of His character?”

“Basically saying, “I’ve been living and preaching boldly something for 20 years and led generations of people with my teachings and now I no longer believe it..therefore I’m going to boldly and loudly tell people it was all wrong while I boldly and loudly lead people in to my next truth.” I’m perplexed why they aren’t embarrassed? Humbled? Ashamed, fearful, confused? Why be so eager to continue leading people when you clearly don’t know where you are headed?”
– THIS IS BECAUSE THEY ARE WORKERS OF INIQUITY. THIS IS HOW INIQUITY GETS IT WORK DONE!

 

““Thirdly, there is a common thread running through these leaders/influencers that basically says that “no one else is talking about the REAL stuff.” This is just flatly false. I just read today in a renown worship leader’s statement, “How could a God of love send people to hell? No one talks about it.” As if he is the first person to ask this? Brother, you are not that unique. The church has wrestled with this for 1500 years. Literally. Everybody talks about it. Children talk about it in Sunday school.”

““And lastly, and most shocking imo, as these influencers disavow their faith, they always end their statements with their “new insight/new truth” that is basically a regurgitation of Jesus’s words?! It’s truly bizarre and ironic. They’ll say “I’m disavowing my faith but remember, love people, be generous, forgive others”. Ummm, why? That is actually not human nature. No child is ever born and says “I just want to love others before loving myself. I want to turn the other cheek. I want to give my money away to others in need”. Those are bible principles taught by a prophet/Priest/king of kings”

Lack of Repentance keeps you Under Submission to Iniquity

Repentance is so important because whatever iniquity you don’t repent from, you are still under its original purpose.

dark skinned vs light skinned… good hair vs bad hair????

I absolutely HATE WITH A PASSION the dark vs light and good hair vs bad hair culture. I believe in pursuing God’s creativity and beauty with what He gave you. Its all about confidence, not looking to emulate what the media shows you.

Iniquity is in the Heart of Men

The root of it is really just the sinful human nature that uses any chance it can get to spread pride, superiority, and self-seeking merchandising strategies.

Its not limited to just African American racism or Eurocentric culture either. Believe it or not in India there are caramel colored women that think they are ugly because they are not beige. They even have skin cream lighteners sold on nationally televised commercials where a lightskinned Indian woman gets paler and paler, and all the sudden her dream man wants her.

Proverbs 16
6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.

Men everywhere in every culture have to purify their iniquities with Mercy and Truth, and build their faith in God and His Creative Glory…

Gods Creativity and Your Confidence

Man looks on outward appearance, but God looks at the heart. Everyone has a purpose and if you connect to God’s Creativity your beauty will eventually shine.

The more you allow yourself to receive communication or marketing from the workers of iniquity, the more you will hate yourself and give them the advantage over you, because that’s Satan’s goal. Dark skin is just as beautiful as light skin but if the dark skin has no confidence and doesn’t smile, how can it be beautiful? (SoS 1:5 I am dark and lovely, black and comely…)

Discipline and Order

One of my sons has soft hair, one has harder hair. They both are appealing to me, but in culture coarser hair is considered lesser.

Why… because the human eye is drawn to order… that’s just a natural fact. Order is beauty because it makes you wonder about the person who ordered it. The human eye is also drawn to symmetry and balance.

It takes more work to bring order to harder hair than softer hair. Soft hair doesnt go wild until 2 or 3 inches, and can be ordered with a swipe of a comb. Coarse hair needs to be trained from the beginning. That’s why discipline is key.

A wild bush looks less appealing than a pine tree that grows straight up with straight needles. But when that bush is trimmed it is just as beautiful. Both the bush and the pine tree were created by God and have the same potential for beauty. One just needs more input and discipline.

As a matter of fact you can do more with the bush than you can do with the pine tree. The harder hair needs more discipline but it looks just as good and even better when it is disciplined.

I believe if you pursue God’s creativity with discipline you can be just as powerful and beautiful as someone who came out with an easier appealing look in the eyes of man.

Creativity, Confidence, Discipline, and Balance = Opportunity

That’s the value of using what God has given you even if it seems at first to be less in the eyes of man. Your confidence and discipline in God’s creativity can create something the world has never seen… Which can ultimately bring glory to God.

GOD CANNOT BE MANAGED BY YOUR PR CAMPAIGNS!!!!

God is against iniquity, and His immutable law will always cause seeds of iniquity to grow into unrighteous fruit.

Purity and Holiness are not optional, and God is never mocked.

This nation is reaping seeds of iniquity, masonry, oppression, and genocide.

Certain famous Christians are reaping the iniquity of their idolatry, adultery, masonic&greek covenants, and false doctrines.

Cut off bad seeds, start sowing only good seeds today!!!

GOD CANNOT BE MANAGED BY YOUR PR CAMPAIGNS!!!!

7 Reasons Why Iniquity Moves the Crowd and Truth Always Loses the Crowd

This is why artistic talent, oratory excellence, and big money stages will always outperform Truth in influencing masses and crowds:

1. God gives a strong delusion to those who don’t have a love for the truth. In other words, sending delusions and deceptions thru extremely talentedd and gifted people is Gods way of weeding out those that do not really love him for his truth.

2 Thessalonians 2
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2. Whenever Satan sees people that are willing to disobey God in favor of using their beauty talent and wisdom to promote themselves – he sees himself! He anoints them with deception. Satan anoints iniquity with merchandising and trafficking ability.

Ezekiel 28
15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created,
till iniquity was found in thee.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise
they have filled the midst of thee with violence
, and thou hast sinned:
therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God:
and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub,
from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty,
thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness:
I will cast thee to the ground,
I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities,
by the iniquity of thy traf
fick;
therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee,

3. People would love to be entertained with a nice singing or speaking voice instead of having to think or change their lives to obey Truth.

Ezekiel 33
30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord. 31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. 32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not . 33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.

4. America is culturally a type of revived Greco Roman empire where religious worship is based on oratory performance. Therefore great orators are worshipped, and seen as having the voice of God, not men.

Acts 12
21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. 22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. 23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.

5. Clever rhetorical skills and oratory talent are very useful for supplanting and subverting the power of the Holy Spirit. This is why Apostle Paul was always contrasting his preaching with Greco-Roman style religion.

1 Corinthians 2
2 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

6. When the crowd becomes large, the biggest temptation is to become a hypocrite aka “play actor,” and to put on a mask, perform and play a role. That’s why when the crowd became large Jesus’s first warning was to avoid the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

Luke 12

1 In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. 3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

7. It’s Easy to find the broad way, many will find it. Few will find the narrow way.

Matthew 7
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

The Disciple of Christ’s Solution: Follow Jesus and Love the Truth, Make Disciples, not Fans. Seek Fruit, not Praise. Train the Few, Don’t Chase the Masses

3 John 1

4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

BUT I thought we have to reach the masses? Didn’t Jesus tell us to go out to the highways and byways and tell everyone good and bad to come in? (Matthew 22).

Yes, outreach is good. But please read all the way to the end of that parable in Matthew 22. The person that got in without a wedding garment on was cast out into outer darkness… Then Jesus said that many are called, but few are chosen.

The bible says that wisdom cries out in the streets (Proverbs 8). So yes, we must broadcast wisdom to the masses, but what’s more important is discipling the few and placing righteous garments on them.

And when you do reach out to the masses, cry out with wisdom and the Word of God only. Thats actually how you find out who is really ready to be discipled.

Watering down and corrupting, or rebranding and merchandising the message – to reach a wider audience –will work; but it’s the work of iniquity and it is not an option. It gets people in without their wedding garments on.

Why Did it take a Sport Columnist to Say what a Preacher should be saying?

“Criticizing Jay-Zesus is a sin in the black community. He’s been approved by our President. Jay-Z’s wealth, to some, means he can do no wrong.” – Jason Whitlock

“Jay-Z’s success and his exalted status in the black community speak to the power of our self-hatred, delusional ignorance and unwillingness to learn from our history.

There’s always been a comfy bed, a pretty belly-warmer and a bright spotlight at the big house for the black performer willing to entertain the masses with n*gga tales.”  – Jason Whitlock

“Jay-Z is not slang for Jesus. Hova is no one’s savior…. He’s highly compensated to spin catchy fairy tales that promote the self-destructive notion that the path out of black American poverty and into the American Dream is through the drug trade and criminality.

Our political system — on the right and left — is so bankrupt of ethics that President Obama has zero shame about embracing the king of black-denigration music.” – Jason Whitlock

“Jay-Z is the holy grail of n*gga rap, the proper name for the genre of music that made Shawn Carter one of our president’s best friends. Oh, I’m sure that’s upsetting and disconcerting for some of you to read. You’d prefer I label the Jigga Man a gangsta rapper. He isn’t. He’s a n*gga rapper. Listen to his music.

On the opening track of “Magna Carta”, a song dominated by Timberlake’s singing, Jay-Z pops in just enough to rattle off “n*gga” eight times. He’s perfected the art form of repeatedly saying the N-word over slickly produced musical beats while telling stories about fame, fortune, family and a former life of crime.” – Jason Whitlock

People that curse themselves as a “term of endearment” and “entertainment” have no authority when they cry about “injustice…” This is not because its wrong to have a right opinion, but because consistency is powerful, and hypocrisy is weak. If you support it, you are it. – SOSpression
