RESPOND….


respond-to-god

WHEN YOU SEND A TEXT MESSAGE AND YOU KNOW THEY HAVE READ IT BUT THEY NEVER RESPOND………I hate that!!!

You know what I am talking about!

You call someone and leave a voice message and you know they listened to it but they never respond….HOW RUDE!

James 1:22-24, Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like. MSG

WHEN JESUS SPEAKS TO US THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT WE HAVE TO RESPOND TO HIM.

Many ignore the Word, ignore conviction, ignore the prompting, ignore the direction of the Holy Spirit – WE SEE THE MESSAGE AND CHOOSE TO IGNORE IT!

GOD IS A GOD OF RESPONSE!

We want Him to respond to us when we pray, BUT we do not want to respond to Him so we ignore Him.

THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RELIGION AND RELATIONSHIP.

When you are religious then ignoring and not responding to Jesus is not big deal.

When you are in a relationship with Jesus your response shows love and communication.

ARE YOU RELIGIOUS OR DO YOU HAVE A GROWING RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS?

Learn to respond quickly to the Holy Spirit and watch your relationship explode.

EVALUATING RELATIONSHIPS


healthy_relationships

WE ALL HAVE PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES THAT TAKE OUR TIME, FOCUS, AND INFLUENCE IN SOME DIMENSION.

A great challenge is when we re-evaluate those relationships to make sure that they are productive.

I AM NOT SAYING KICKING PEOPLE OUT OF YOUR LIFE (although some of us need to do that with some people), BUT I AM SAYING THAT WE NEED TO ASK OURSELVES IF THEY ARE ADDING ANYTHING TO OUR LIVES.

There are relationships where the other person has all the benefits from the friendship.

There are relationships where there is no communication unless they need something from you.

There are relationships where the other person only seems to draw you back to sin.

There are relationships where it it mutual – these are healthy!

Give and take – share and listen – encourage and correct.

HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS MUST BE MUTUAL, NOT A ONE WAY STREET.

Recently I have been evaluating my ministry relationships and realizing that some that I have had for years do not add to my life (they are not bad, they just add nothing).

OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS MUST BE THE SAME THING.  WE CANNOT TAKE ALL THE BENEFITS FROM HIM (salvation, peace, joy, power, blessing…..) AND NOT GIVE ANYTHING BACK.  NOT A TRADE OFF….. I MEAN RELATIONSHIP!

Jesus is waiting for you to not only bless you but to have a relationship with you.

THIS IS WHY HE CAME!

What relationships in your life are not mutual?

What relationships take but never replenish?

DO WE HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS THAT IS MUTUAL OR IS HE THE ONLY ONE GIVING?

Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 18:24 “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SEE A PSYCHIC?


psychic-advice1

UNDERSTANDING WHAT YOU ARE DOING WHEN YOU GO SEE A PSYCHIC IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!

Why would you allow the one under your feet to stand up and whisper in your ear?

When you go to a psychic the first thing to know is that GOD IS DISPLEASED!

Lev 19:31, Do not defile yourselves by turning to mediums or to those who consult the spirits of the dead. I am the Lord your God. 

If you are seeking God first then know that you CANNOT go to a psychic and seek Jesus first!

The second principle is that you are GIVING A FOOTHOLD TO THE DEVIL in your life.

Eph 4:27, and give no opportunity to the devil.

WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR EARS TO A PSYCHIC YOU ARE OPENING YOUR SPIRIT TO LISTEN TO A DEMON SPIRIT WHO IS GIVING THAT MEDIUM INFORMATION.  You are literally asking a demon to speak to you and give you entertainment and or comfort through direction.  THAT IS INSANE!

I do not blame the devil.  IF YOU CHOOSE TO SUBMIT YOUR SPIRIT TO A DEMON THEN YOU ARE THE ONE WHO WILL REAP FROM THE HARVEST OF THAT DEMONIC INFLUENCE.

You cannot play with the devil and not expect to get burned.  He has only one core value and that is to deceive and to destroy your eternity.

John 10:10, The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

NOT BRAIN SURGERY…..LISTEN TO REVELATION AND HEAR WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE PERSON YOU ARE SUBMITTING YOUR SPIRIT TO HEAR.

Rev. 21:8, But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.

Sorcerer – Greek definition (pharmakos – sorcerer, poisoner, Strongs Exhaustive) = a medium who acts as a channel of communication between human beings and the spirit world, POISON!

THERE IS NO CONFUSION ON THIS TOPIC IN THE WORD OR MIND OF GOD – DO NOT PARTICIPATE WITH THE DEVIL, HE CHARGES A HIGH PRICE!
