Hypocrisy is so maddening to us, even hypocrites abhor hypocrites. It’s all a part of the neurosis in which we now all live. How profound our masks. We’re all attractions … Continue reading Jesus Knows Our Bones
Psalm 147:16 He gives snow like wool; he scatters frost like ashes.
A lot of people blame their mom’s for things. Whoever you are, you’ve likely done this. If you have not (out loud, at least) you have a friend or a sister or a cousin that talks a little or a lot about mom in this manner.
The original mother, Eve, the only motherless mother, couldn’t blame her reckless choice on her mom.
Of course, we, her descendants, blame Mother Eve for everything. And that’s okay. She did the wrong thing and the trajectory for all of us has been really horrible. If only….
But, she did. And here we go on. The choices we make effect our children. Ancient history tells us it’s true. Current days tell the same story.
My approach has been consistent with my own mom and with Mother Eve and I believe it’s allowed me more joy, less distress.
I’ve learned to take the teachable lessons from both women as gifts. The attributes of my mom, I try to flourish further and avoid the characteristic areas I viewed as lacking.
From Eve the lesson is big and I can’t live to give Glory to God if it’s overlooked and ignored. And, it’s so simple and clear. Eve was deceived. “Hath God really said……?” she knew God really said what He said.
Yet, Eve could forget it all in the midst of a false guide, a deceiver. This Mother’s Day let us remind ourselves that if God really said something, He really did say something and no one should have any power to convince you otherwise. Be equipped in the Word.
So, I want to write to you and tell you a little bit about life right now; a segment of time you will have been too young to remember twenty years from now.
God tells us we have everything we need on His Word. Teacher, if you tell us that He told you, just you, something yesterday that He wanted you to tell us, that isn’t in His book, that’s your pride, not His Word.
If you’re not speaking what is written, you are not saving a soul and it’s not love. Please pull back your hand to another if you’re preaching something you or another designed; something not from God. The only time that can be compassionate is when you declare it, “not of God.” Misguiding the vulnerable under the guise of Jesus is treachery.
Test what you hear and see through your reading of scripture. One important facet of false teachings is that not everything that false teachers teach is false. Some of it; … Continue reading A Little Arsenic in Your Water – Pray for Discernment
It does happen. A foe or a feign friend makes you a target. Unnerving you, she criticizes you before your group, uses meaty sarcasm to describe your life choices and … Continue reading When Motives Are Filled With Duplicity
I carve out my thoughts here with the pronouncement that I am writing to those who believe that the Bible is the Word of God. This is not a conversion … Continue reading Oh! God Told Us
It was pride that caused the pre-cosmic fall that landed a demon in the Garden and resulted in the devastation of God’s perfect design for us. That is, it disrupted … Continue reading It’s All in the Book
