Is your Body Holy?

Image

It has been a while since I blogged maybe a couple of weeks I just want to share a couple of things that has been lying on my heart. I have been praying for while and seeing God answer my prayers with greatness. I have prayed for finances and he has answered me and then for a unified community and he has answered. I have even heard in my spirit he would give me India yes and I truly believe it! I will spread the Gospel in a progressive manor throughout the 26 states which I am starting to pray over as I type this blog. This is not the total purpose of my blog it is the grievance of slavery that won’t escape my thoughts and the impure generation I have grew up in. I read in 1 Corinthians 6 that fornication is the only sin committed with the body every other sin defiles the heart but fornication defiles the body. I  am struck by that scripture and what conviction it laid on my heart is was deep. I have been seeking God in a major and beautiful manner asking Him to fill my heart with pureness and I have reached an area of my life and seen the result of being married to the bride of Christ and seeing the spiritual fruit from that hunger. I am not a strange charismatic guy who seeks manifestation and doesn’t have strong faith in the Lord. I could have faith in God alone but this thought of child slavery and human slavery has hit me in a major way in the last year. I have seen the gifts of the spirit operate in my own life but this thing I wish the men of God would grab a hold of purity of the flesh and heart. I truly have been praying for a wife but that also has been preparing me for our encounter. I see a trend of awareness and dedication form young women of God this need in ministry. God called fathers not men who fornicate; we need to rescue our children. I am dedicated to the teaching of God’s word knowing that it truly is living and has a power that no other thing in this world can match. The Power of the savior in my life has driven to points of desperation but the separation of his spirit from my body because it filled with sin I probably would not be able to come back from. This is powerful and heart-wrenching if we can grab this right now as you read this fornication of the body is sin against the spirit of God because your body is His temple. I truly think this has not been taught I know I never been taught this but I do know it is God’s word and we need to find new and dynamic ways to apply this teaching to the Body of Christ. In Ephesians it says God knew us before the foundation of the world. We were already a spirit he was pouring into flesh but to sin against the living god would be to use our body as a place of death and bondage. We weren’t meant to live in sin and our body was meant to sin against the spirit of God. I know this is why human slavery and sex trafficking is angering God because it is sinning against his temple.  Read these verses and see what the Father says:

But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

1Co 6:12  “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything.

1Co 6:13  “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.

1Co 6:14  And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.

1Co 6:15  Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never!

1Co 6:16  Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.”

1Co 6:17  But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.

1Co 6:18  Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

   

 

1Co 6:19  Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,

1Co 6:20  for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body

Can we know ignore the fact that we are lying with sin and allowing it dominate us. I pray you see the vision from the lord for people to live holy and pure.

unschedule shortcuts

Well today I went on an excursion on our 62 acres at school. I want you to picture this a not-so-country Guy walking through many different thickets of woods. I was walking through the woods to take a shortcut to the office on our property. In our shortcuts in our life we always try to take shortcuts. I was walking, ducking, and bending trying to find a path to the office. I knew there was one, because I saw others take it. I never followed them ,but I saw them come out on the other side alright. There goes so irony for you ha. I was walking and to my amazement there was a streams were lush and fertile as I took steps. I was getting lost talking to God while in the midst of my understanding saying God I know you can help me right now. So, I couldn’t find a path in the thicket so I retraced my steps not moving forward but walking backwards instead of forward. So, I went along this treeline which, looked like it would take me to this perfect trail. I knew was determined to get to the other side. I saw a hill ,but there was an obstacle a stream in the marshland. I was walking on logs and then the steady logs were gone and there was a gap and a tree I was holding on to. I have ventured far into my steps that turning back would be stupid in my own little thoughts. I was seriously hanging on to this tree breaking off limbs to make the walk on the water easily instead of going back I truly thought I could get to the other side. I mean this shortcut was becoming an obstacle. I didn’t even know, I was by myself and seeing my stubbornness. By this time I had my feet wet my pants were muddy and I was tired and sweating from a shortcut that was suppose to take me no time. I finally got out and was walking up the road to the office and being humble in such a major way. I heard God say this we take shortcuts in life make our own decision and then when we want to find the way out we call on Him. I learned some major things:
1. Never take shortcuts
2. rejoice in the path you are walking in no matter who is taken shortcuts.
3. Humbleness is a character quality.
4. Preparation is a gift.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Today is thanksgiving of course but something changed today about thanksgiving the Holy Spirit came to dinner. A nice civilized dinner with old family friends and my close family members. I shared psalms 100 and God allowed people to start thinking about what God has done. In my own life the restoration of my immediate family has been amazing. Then liver cancer,cancer,drug addiction,and sorrow for the nation. This is what God has done at my table. Then let me call her Aunt Grace was asked what was she thankful for and she started singing Thank you Lord and the whole table joined in. God brought tears of Joy from three generation with continued blessings. I truly have one thing to say about this thanksgiving a year I will never forget because for the first time God is being thanked before anything in our life.  Many Blessings

 

Removing Plan B from your life

Some People believe because Plan A doesn’t happen their way we have to move on to Plan B. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (My opinion) When you trust in God completely he never has a plan B for your life at all. Psalms 71:1 1In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. There is one plan for you life the plan of salvation. Romans 10:9-10

King James Version (KJV)

9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

You come to Christ, live for him and accept the great commission. Matthew 28:19 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: that’s it!!!

 

God doesn’t tell you how plan A is going to happen between the steps he just says I have a plan for your life and I love you.

Colossians 2:6-7

King James Version (KJV)

6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

7Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

That’s pretty much it you thank him and trust him even more through Salvation to commission you learn to live right in constant relation to JESUS and in turn GOD.

A little word diagram: Plan and man equals finite and Plan and God equals infinite

 

Lets pray: God I ask that we trust you and we see the majesty and beauty of your plan for our life. I thank you for Jesus and all he does for us. God please give us faith to stick to Plan A and allow no confusion to our life in Jesus name I pray
