If you are a Christian (BORN AGAIN) from my part of the world then you probably have heard this statement more than once in your life time” i don’t want to change my faith”. it has become so common that you find yourself ignorantly trying to justify the good you are trying to do ( this is especially common when you go out for evangelism or when encouraging a friend to follow you to church to hear God’s word with you etc ). you even meet a man that wants to marry you and he tells you that you have to change your faith to be his wife ( he actually means church). Faith is not a church people. Faith is not a location. We Christians have to work on our grammar? it sounds like believing in Jesus Christ equals change of cloths from a closet full
It gets you wondering if you both are Christians or some parts of the bible are just out of place.One Lord, one faith, one baptism, Eph 4:5. You begin to wonder ;was i asking you to stop believing in Jesus Christ? Our faith is stayed on Him. He is the Author and Finisher of our faith. So what faith don’t you want to change?
The first time I visited Kempinski Hotel at MOE, I was fascinated by the beautiful superior interior fittings… oh the choice of colors and upholstery. We all want beautiful things in life . Something that everyone can refer too… I wonder why we seem to think that God will want any less .That is the same how God feels about us.
“Build the Lord’s house and you will be built”
“This is what the Lord says: These people say it’s not the right time to rebuild the house of the Lord.” When is the right time for your life to begin to reflect His Glory? When is the right time to let your light so shine? It goes beyond fine cloths and shoes. It’s a call to adorn our character(nice upholstery)
3 Then the Lord spoke his word through the prophet Haggai. He said, 4 “Is it time for you to live in your paneled houses while this house lies in ruins? We are His house and He wants to bring the best out in us to show. Most often we mistaken His house for a building. We are His house, in us He lives, moves and have His being…… are you beginning to see what He is telling you…..
He says: I will make you a wonder. You will be a sign of royalty (signet ring).Once we stay close to Him, it will be impossible for us not to be noticed. If we stay in His presence it is impossible for people not to see the beauty of His house; You. He is saying again, you are a sign and a wonder and if you let me do my interior fit-out work… I will cause you to be a place to be visited, to be marvelled at, a touristic attraction… Let me work on you
(study more on Haggai 1-2) Father let the eyes of our understanding be open to your truths.
I was watching this interesting interview on “marriage is not for me” by “our “icons Shonda Rhimes and Oprah Winfrey. You know there is just something about information and especially from people we look up to, or are celebrities. Personally I think some of the most twisted ideas are from the so say icons and the truth is behind closed doors the reality of their global speeches holds on to them.
The truth is everyone is entitled to your opinion. I just do not understand how you will want your life to be everyone’s life. You can have kids with a man but a man will take up your time? How twisted is that? Well that is not the essence of this post today.
Marriage is for me (1 Cor 7:2b). Do you want to know why?
- It is a gift from my creator (1Cor 7:7)
- It is honourable (Heb 13:4)
- It should not be forbidden ( 1Tim 4:3)
- It is responsibility ( 1 Cor 7:33)
- It is not a sin ( 1 Cor 7:28)
Do not fear what they fear or speak what they speak. Have a mind of your own and not generalities. There is a man or wan out there for you as husband or wife but still if you are not “CALLED “to be married it is still great. God does not speak English, He uses ENGLISH. To be continued ….
Being in authority doesn’t make you the Authority. It was given you, do not insult it. Accountability time is very near!!!!
Your opinion of my prefect man is perfect. I appreciate your love because in your eyes I see he is perfect. The right height, appropriate age, prefect skin colour, fine eyes, glittering teeth and those drop dead abs with the right number of veins on his muscular skin, being able to lift me up to touch the moon and put me in a sweet dream(#put me to bed).
So I got to thinking;
Did you check if he has the right heart and loves the Most High?
Did you check just his skin or the scares that are born out of unconditional sacrifices?
Are his eyes just fine or do you think he will fill me life with fun and laughter and make me smile out my white teeth?
Is he just aged or mature?
Is it just the veins or you’re sure he will value me and bring out the best in me?
Is it just about lifting my body what happens to my Spirit?
Will i just have sweet dreams or be in the sweet place at the end of life?
Your answer will make me look into your opinion for me.
I have always known that God cares from the time I set my heart to know Him. But i was more trilled to know that God cares SO MUCH ABOUT WHAT WE DO.
It goes beyond what we do. It gets right down till little specifics like color and more. When messengers had to be sent to Peter as it relates to gentiles getting saved, Cornelius was told to go to a Leather workers house. You see, He is mindful of the WORKS OF OUR HANDS. Not just that it further said Brown Leather. Our God knows details we just need to lean in on Him.So you see, there is nothing wrong in wearing, making and owning good quality and fine things; leather ain’t cheap
Further He cares about where we live. God knows where you live right now. This SHOULD TAKE EVERY WORRY OFF YOU NOW. That is why it is important to seeks God’s direction in all we do even where we life.
Let me trill you the more. God said that Peter lives with his friend new the BEACH. Vacations are allowed by God even a nice time @ a BEACH RESORT. God is not a Dictator ( He is not uptight as is sometimes portrayed)
(Read Acts 10, for full insight and new rhema)
How dare you try to make a fool of me?
We warn, we get mad and rash with people not inline with our expectations
How many times have we made a fool of His works
How many times have we made the blood to act as losing it’s power
How often have made the Cross seem like just a curse
How many times have we spoiled His spotless apparel
How many times have we made leaving the splendor of heaven a by thing
Mercy, mercy and more mercy is what can and should keep crying
Grace , grace and more grace
