“Guarding Your Heart and Mind” – By CoramDeo

This is a recap of the room devotional Monday December evening in Christianfellowship chat room, enjoy.

<@CoramDeo> “Guarding Your Heart and Mind”

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. (Proverbs 4:23, ESV)

<@CoramDeo> The NIV translates this as “guard your heart. In Scripture, the heart is the very center of one’s being, the seat of reason and the will. The seat of desire, inclination, or will can be indicated by “heart.” It is also considered the seat of emotions, the seat of knowledge and wisdom and as a synonym of “mind.”

Your heart is the most important tool you have. It is not your experience, knowledge, or skills. It is your heart that matters most of all. Jesus said it plainly:

The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. (Luke 6:45, ESV)

I believe it is necessary to guard one’s heart (and mind) for three reasons: 1) Your heart is extremely precious; 2) Your heart is the source (springs of life) of everything that you do; and, 3) Your heart is under continual attack. Let’s look at each of these three points.

First – Your heart is extremely precious

We don’t tend to guard worthless things. When I take my trash cans out on Thursday evening, I come back inside. I never spend the night standing in the cold guarding my trash cans. Why is that? Because these are worthless items.

It is not so with your heart. Your heart is the essence of who you are. It is your authentic self, the very center and core of your being. It is where your passions and desire reside. It is that part of you that connects with God and other people.

When your heart is damaged, when your heart dies, everything else dies. That is why Solomon admonishes us to make our hearts our top priority. Above all – guard your heart.

2) Your heart is the source (springs of life) of everything that you do

Proverbs calls it “the wellspring of life.” In other words, it is the source of everything else in your life. Your heart overflows into thoughts, words, and actions.

In Oregon, we have many beautiful natural springs, where water flows to the surface of the earth from deep under the ground. It then accumulates in pools or runs off into creeks and streams.

If you plug up the spring, you stop the flow of water. If you poison the water, the flow becomes toxic. In either situation, you threaten life downstream. Everything depends on the condition of the spring.

In the same manner, if your heart is unhealthy, it has an impact on everything that you do. It threatens your family, your friends, your ministry, your career, and, indeed, your legacy. It is, therefore, imperative that you guard it.

Let’s move to the final point – 3) Your heart is under continual attack

<@CoramDeo> In Proverbs, the writer is implying that we are living in a combat zone. In combat zones, there are casualties and there are deaths. We cannot be oblivious to this fact. We have a real enemy who is bent on our destruction. He not only opposes God, but also opposes those who are aligned with God and His purposes.

The enemy uses many types of weapons to assault our hearts. This can come in the form of some circumstance that leads to discouragement, disappointment or disillusionment. In these times, it is imperative that we guard our hearts above all things because we would be most inclined to give up.

We must choose these times to guard our hearts and mind. We must be ever watchful what goes into our hearts and mind. What we feed ourselves with will determine our growth. Avoiding anger, pride and temptation are also critical elements of guarding the heart.

Let me close with some words of wisdom from the Apostle Paul:

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:8-9, ESV)

Notice in the latter part of the verse it says “PRACTICE these things.” They do not come naturally. We must consistently and intentionally put them into practice.

Dwell on these things, brothers and sisters, and erect an impenetrable fence around your hearts each day. May God continue to show mercy and help in all of our times of need.

So what is Forgiveness?

2 Cor 2:10-11- Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive  For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, 11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.

 Matt 18:21-22 – Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven

 This text teaches us the Importance of Forgiveness. Jesus stressed the importance of forgiveness by using a breath taking challenge. He instructed Peter to forgive up to four hundred ninety times. Forgiveness is important!

 Why we ask? It is important that we learn to forgive. Forgiveness is a learned response. It is not something that is instinctive. It is something we have to learn and do because the opposite is true. Our sinful nature keeps us from seeking or giving forgiveness.

 However, the greatest teacher who ever lived, Jesus Christ, wants to teach us to forgive. He has many valuable lessons he wants to teach us. These lessons will help us spiritually, physically and emotionally. Jesus wants to give us the gift of eternal life. He also wants to give us victory in this life as well.

 Besides saying that forgiveness is important, I want to mention two practical reasons why forgiveness is important!

 First, forgiveness is important because God’s forgiveness of us is dependent on our forgiving others. Look at what the Bible has to say about this concept.

Mark 11:25-26 And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.’’

 A second reason why forgiveness is important is because our spiritual freedom depends on our forgiving others. Whenever you harbor unforgiveness in your heart you will be in bondage. You will not have freedom when you try to worship.

Matt 5:22-23 “Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.”

Unforgiveness hinders worship and Unforgiveness keeps you in bondage.


Illustration: Two little brothers, Harry and James, had finished supper and were playing until bedtime. Somehow, Harry hit James with a stick, and tears and bitter words followed. Charges and accusations were still being exchanged as their mother prepared them for bed.

She said, “Now boys, what would happen if either of you died tonight or you never had the opportunity to forgive one another?” James spoke up, “Well, OK, I’ll forgive him tonight, but if we’re both alive in the morning, he’d better look out.”

You see James went to bed and slept in bondage. He had unforgiveness in his heart as he slept. “Forgiveness doesn’t make the other person right, it makes you free.”

So what is Forgiveness?

Forgiveness is to give up all claims on an account of, and another is to cease to feeling resentment for the wrong. So, if you owe me a debt of any kind, if I am going to forgive that debt, that means I will no longer hold you accountable for that debt.

The slate is wiped clean and you owe me nothing. It doesn’t matter if you owed me a penny or if you owed me a million dollars. I have forgiven, therefore, I no longer lay claim to that penny or that million dollars.

Let’s say you hurt my feelings. Whether it was deliberate or unintentional, the results are still the same. My feelings were hurt and you did it. But I know the Lord has forgiven me much and He commands me to forgive. So, if I am going to truly forgive, I have to take responsibility for my own feelings of resentment and let them go.

I may not want to do so because you really did hurt me and I really don’t want you to get off the hook so easily. Every time the memory of what you did pops into my head, I replay it over and over and over again and I feel the pain and the resentment all over again.

I start thinking about what I should have said or what I should have done and how I will lash out the next time that memory comes back or how angry I get for the hurt you did me. But that is the opposite of forgiving.

That is holding on to resentment. I can’t honestly claim that I have forgiven you if I keep replaying it in my head every time that thought comes into my mind.

I may not be able to stop it from popping into my mind, but I sure don’t have keep dwelling on it. I really don’t need to be concerned with it. I should not be thinking of what I should have said or what I could have done, or better yet tell myself you owe me.

You see unforgiveness leads to resentment and resentment leads to bitterness. That bitterness is like a cancer that keeps eating away at the person who refuses to forgive. It’s like a poison that spreads throughout the body, but it doesn’t stop there.

Unforgiveness, it poisons relationships with your friends, it poisons relationships with love ones and it poisons relationships your family.

We, as Christians, should certainly learn to ask why not me instead of why me. We are followers of Christ. If we are His followers, then we should be following him into persecution and into being abused and wrongly accused without asking why me.

God has my back. He knows that I was hurt. If He determines that anything needs to be said or done then he will take care of it, because the bible says that revenge is His.

I am saying that this is how we should handle being wronged. Put it into the hands of the one and only mighty God and get peace with ourselves by resting in his arms.

We cannot live the Christian life. We cannot bring about a spiritual transformation in our lives. We cannot live up to God’s standards. We cannot fulfill the teachings of the New Testament.

The Christian life is a supernatural act whereby God empowers us to do what we could not do otherwise. So, what should we do if we find ourselves facing an impossible task.

Well we have discussed an important issue in the spiritual life. However, there is a deeper issue at stake. The issue is following Jesus Christ. Jesus loves you. Jesus created you. He knows what is best for you.

He knows, far better than social scientists, that forgiveness is healthy for you. He knows that unforgiveness will damage you emotionally. The important thing is that you trust Him, obey Him and follow Him

Let God take care of it, quit thinking about it and move on to a better life and start living for him and do so because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross because while he was on the cross he said this in Luke 23:34 – Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

Jesus will take my pain away and will help me quit dwelling on the past and the hurt. I must live a new life and I must do as God commands me to do.

Forgive and leave it alone and let it go.

Eternal Security your Salvation.

You know there are many out in the world who makes statements that the term once saved always save is not in the bible, this may true to a point of using those exact words, but the fact remains if a person is Born again that person is saved and there are a great many verses to prove this point.

Once a person repents, comes to Jesus and asks for forgiveness of their sin’s and repents of it, the he or she has received the Holy Spirit, that person is saved and their salvation is secure. So if you want to argue that your salvation could be lost or there is a possibility you can lose it, you are barking up the wrong tree.

I suggest to you that you better study the word of God in great detail, My bible which God breath, his living words says my salvation is secure and that I am saved and will always be saved and endure it till the end. Say what you want but from the word of God all these verse below shows once I am saved I will always be saved, plain and simple no if’s no butts.

Do you know what the word eternal means in Greek? The Greek word that is translated into eternal is “aionion.” It comes from the Greek root “aion” meaning “age.” The Greek word “aion” (and its adjective “aionian”) is mostly translated “eternal,” “everlasting,” and for “ever” in the King James Version. However, some translations read “age-abiding,” “age-during,” or “eon,” So unless I fell off a turnip truck yesterday the word ETERNAL MEANS ETERNAL, So how does one not be saved nor have eternal life???

ETERNAL means exactly that forever, so if a person is truly saved then that person will always be saved if they really meant it and show the evidence of this transformation. So to all those who want to prove their point that saying once saved always saved is not real, QUIT BEATING A DEAD HORSE AND GET BUSY SERVING JESUS CHRIST, COME ON FOLKS.

Eternal Life throughout the Bible are promises of eternal life to believers. None of these verses indicate that one can lose the eternal life that God promises to them that they received from his son Jesus Christ.

•And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. (Matthew 19:29)

•”I tell you the truth,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields–and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life. (Mark 10:29-30)

•”I tell you the truth,” Jesus said to them, “no one who has left home or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God will fail to receive many times as much in this age and, in the age to come, eternal life.” (Luke 18:29-30)

•”For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

•Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him.” (John 3:36)

•”I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. (John 5:24)

•And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. (John 6:39) Woah you mean to tell me that we can remove ourselves from Jesus Christ in which God has sent to him, Hogwash folks this is all the proof you need we cannot lose it nor can we take ourselves from him. Come on.

•For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:40)

•For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. (John 17:2-3)

•For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.'” When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord; and all who were appointed for eternal life believed. (Acts 13:47-48)

•The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 5:20-21)

•For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

•Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. (2 Corinthians 5:1)

•The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. (Galatians 6:8)

•But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. (1 Timothy 1:16)

•Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. (1 Timothy 6:12)

•a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, (Titus 1:2)

•he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. (Titus 3:5-7)

•See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. And this is what he promised us–even eternal life. (1 John 2:24-25)

•And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. (1 John 5:11-13)

•Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. (Jude 1:21)

In John 5:24 above, Jesus says that a believer “has crossed over from death to life.” Nowhere does the Bible say that a believer can cross back to death.

In John 6:39, Jesus said He would “lose none” of those the Father gave Him. Wait a minute Was Jesus lying? Acts 13:48 says that believers have been “appointed for eternal life.” Nowhere does the Bible say a believer can become unappointed.

In Titus 1:2, Paul tells us that God promised eternal life “before the beginning of time.” The promise is tied to God’s inability to lie. In Titus 3:5-7, Paul tells us that believers undergo “rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.” Nowhere does the Bible say a believer can be unreborn or unrenewed.

John tells us in 1 John 5:11-13 that we can know we have eternal life. If it’s true that we can lose our salvation, why does John say that we can know we have eternal life? Is this also a Lie???  If so then God’s words and all of his promise a Lie, is it a joke, it not real? If this is the case then all of his words are not true. Come on folks open up your eyes to the real truth.

Dozens of other verses explain how believers can earn rewards in heaven by doing good works on earth (although such works do not get one into heaven). If we can lose our salvation, what happens to all those rewards we had supposedly earned?

The Bible indicates that the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin. This means that no sin a believer commits can result in condemnation or loss of salvation.

What about “believers” who live in a continual state of sin? Such individuals are hypocrites and they are not believers at all. The Bible indicates that believers do not practice sin on a routine basis plain and simple here. A direct example of a believer falling into sin, but still retaining his salvation is given by Paul – see next.

It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that does not occur even among pagans: A man has his father’s wife… hand this man over to Satan, so that the sinful nature may be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord. (1 Corinthians 5:1, 5)

Paul indicates here that the man was committing incest with his father’s step mother, yet Paul was still confident that his spirit would be saved. So, a true believer cannot lose his salvation through sin.

Dozens of people, Teachers, Preachers or churches and even websites claim that the believer does not have any security for salvation.

This is a summary and rebuttal to their arguments. One of their main complaints is that the doctrine of eternal security might lead to licentiousness (increased sinning). However, those who value sin above Jesus Christ are not real believers anyway.

These type of people have really never been changed nor been transformed or has been converted. This is the reason why so many have never changed in the first place is because they did not believe in what Jesus Christ done for them on the cross at Calvary and never open up their hearts to him.

My concern for the eternal security skeptic is that at least some of them give the impression that they believe they have to earn or maintain their salvation through some form of conformity to the law.

Paul makes it clear in Galatians 5:4 that those who seek to be justified by the law have “fallen from grace” and “have been severed from Christ.” In other words, they are not even saved! My advice to them is to trust in God’s promises and believe that Jesus died for all your sins, regardless of your ability to live up to the standards of the law.

Sorry folks but God’s words are the truth and they are the facts, so if you want to push that garbage that if a person is saved through the blood of Jesus Christ of what he did for us on the cross is not always saved for ever. Then my friends your preaching false doctrine and should be marked and exposed for what you really are, a wolf. I suggest to you that you repent for preaching such false doctrine and start preaching the truth. Woe to you.

Once a person says yes and truly means it, they are saved and will always be saved and they will be change by the true power of God’s Holy Spirit. This is a fact and this is what God’s words says, not what I say or what man says.

Conclusion The security of the believer is a core doctrine in biblical Christianity. The doctrine is not just some idea based upon a few verses in the New Testament. As shown here, there are over 400 verses that espouse this doctrine in one way or another.

Skeptics of eternal security selectively cite a few dozen verses out-of-context or that aren’t really addressing the topic of salvation, but usually of rewards. If you are trusting in Jesus for your salvation, your name has already been written in the Lamb’s book of life and you will go to heaven.

However, if you are pretending to be a Christian, going through the motions, and don’t really believe, no amount of pretending will get you into heaven. Do you feel guilty about the sin in your life? If so, this is the work of the Holy Spirit to conform you to the image of Jesus. Follow Him!

So for those of you who do not want to say a person once he or she is saved is not always saved, then go ahead and believe in what you’re preaching. I know what the Lord has placed on my heart and has lead me to these verse and has open up my eyes to the real truth, do as you like but remember this.

You will stand before Jesus Christ and you will have to answer to him of placing doubts in a mind of a new convert and if because if your misleading teachings cause them fall away, then their blood will be on your hands and how awful would that be to find out during that time when your face to face with him.

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints. (Ephesians 1:18)

Preach the truth, not condemnation. God Bless you.

Storms of Life


Sovereign God, I have no idea what this day may bring, so I cling to Your ever-sure hand. I am grateful You have promised to never leave me nor forsake me. I know You will see me through any storm that may rage against me. May I look unto You, the author and finisher of my faith. Amen.

“Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, ‘Truly You are the Son of God.” MATTHEW 14:33

Here in Matthew 8:23—27 Jesus was asleep in the boat when His disciples awoke Him in the midst of a storm saying, “Lord, save us!” After He calmed the wind and waves, the disciples asked, “What manner of man is this?” Later, in our text, Jesus came walking to His disciples on the water in the middle of a storm and in the middle of the night.

Jesus grants Peter permission to come to Him on the water, but Peter begins to sink when he takes his eyes off Jesus. He cries, “Lord, save me!” After Jesus enters the boat with Peter and calms the tempest, the disciples answer their question from the first storm with these words: “Truly You are the Son of God.”

You are either in a storm, coming out of a storm, or headed for a storm—life is stormy. In the midst of our personal storm we, too, need the One who used the sea as a sidewalk to save us; we too, need to proclaim, “Truly You are the Son of God.” Only Christ can bring calm in the midst of calamity.

It is not natural to have peace in the midst of a storm—it is supernatural! Human nature shuns storms; divine nature stills storms. When faith cries out, “Lord, save me!” the hand of God reaches down and picks us up. Let Jesus bring you victory in the midst of your storm today!

So it does not matter if things are coming at you like a storm, if some you may know as friends, or church members or even family members gets upset with you because they lashed out in anger verse speaking to you first or better yet if a trail comes at you in life which seams hard and unfair you wonder why. Better yet if the storm your in that’s causing you problems and hurts we all can know one thing and this is a fact Jesus can and will clam it.

The fact is this the evidence is in—Jesus, he will see you through! Like the disciples, the more we truly know the Son of God, turst in Jesus and walk in the spirit the more we will want to worship Him and bow our knee to Him, just as the wind and waves did!

Remember, keep your focus on Jesus Christ and not the storms that’s all around you, if you look at the storm you surly will sink just as Peter did, but if you keep your eyes on Jesus and his power nothing can stop you from sinking.

Galatians 5:22-23 – But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.


In Galatians 5, we are also told that when people live by the Spirit, they will bear “fruit of the Spirit.” But what, exactly, is the fruit of the Spirit? Well it’s a way of behaving Yourself, in a way of treating other people, a way of showing the world what it means to be a Christian to show them the love of Jesus Christ.

The Bible says, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control.” Today and every day, will you strive to be patient, joyful, loving, and kind? Will you really try to control yourself? And while you’re at it, will you be peaceful, gentle, patient, and faithful? Remember the world is watching you like an open book.

If you’ll demonstrate to the world that the fruits of the Spirit you can make a wonderful difference in the lives of good Christian people—people like you! Plus you can make a difference in a person who is seeking Jesus Christ.

Now remember this though we, as Christians, are like Christ having the first fruits of the Spirit, we are unlike Him, having the remainders of the flesh. This is the very reason we should do as Gal 5:25 says to walk in the Spirit and not of the Flesh. By doing this we can enjoy our walk with God and be a light to the lost and dying world out their.

Now some people have received Christ but they yet never reached spiritual maturity, reason for this is they always have a tendency to walk in the flesh and this is the main reason many they are not showing the fruits of God’s Holy Spirit. We should grow as Christians each and every day, and we are not completely mature until we live in the presence of Jesus Christ himself.

The Holy Spirit is like a living and continually flowing fountain in believers. We have the boundless privilege of tapping into that fountain every time we pray, walk and talk with him. The more we abide in Christ, the more fruit we bear. Do as God says, draw close to him and he will draw close to us and do not fulfill the desires of the flesh.

Be a light for all others to see and let them know what the love of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ has done for us and show them how to be really set free.

God’s Gift of Life

Psalm 90:12 – So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

Life is a glorious gift from God. Treat it that way. This day, like every other, is filled to the brim with opportunities, challenges, and choices. But, no choice that you make is more important than the choice you make concerning God. Today, you will either

place him at the center of your life—or not—and the consequences of that choice have implications that are both temporal and eternal.

Sometimes, we don’t intentionally neglect God; we simply allow ourselves to become overwhelmed with the demands of everyday life. And then, without our even

realizing it, we gradually drift away from the One we need most; Thankfully, God never drifts away from us.

He remains always present, always steadfast, always loving. As you begin this day, place God and His Son where they belong: in your head, in your prayers, on your lips, and in your heart. And then, with God as your guide and companion, let the journey begin to the blessing you have never seen before. Remember with God all things are possible.

Ephesians 5: 11 — And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

One of the most difficult parts of the renewed mind is to break away from people who reject God’s Word. You have got to remember that when it comes right down to God’s Word, you have no friends. I know that sounds rather drastic, but it really results in a very positive lifestyle of blessings if you adhere to the Word and stop arguing with God. Now the next Scripture tells you why we should not fellowship with darkness.

II Corinthians 6: 14 — Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

There is no fellowship and there is no communion between righteousness and unrighteousness nor between light and darkness. God is keeping it real simple here for us. Right now, we are laying a firm foundation for our subject matter and that is to have company with like-minded believers as opposed to being around and being close friends with unbelievers or unbelieving believers.

I Corinthians 15: 33 — Be not deceived: evil communications [associations] corrupt good manners [morals].

In other words, you become like who you hang around with.

Romans 6: 21 — What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

You should want to manifest the fruit of the spirit mentioned in Galatians.

Galatians 5: 22, 23 — But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

You will manifest counterfeit fruit of the world IF you continue to fellowship with darkness.

Romans 13: 12 — The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour [implements] of light.

Renewing one’s mind to God’s Word in this area will allow you to cast off the works of darkness and in turn, put on the armour of light.

Ephesians 6: 11 — Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles [methods] of the devil.

Ephesians 6: 12 — For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places [from on high].

Ephesians 6: 13 — Wherefore take unto you the whole armour [all the resources] of God, that ye may be able to stand in the evil day [the evil one], and having done all, to stand.

There is only one way to defeat your personal adversary and that is to put on God’s Word in your mind!! THERE IS NO OTHER WAY. You won’t get that major accomplishment that you desire in your life by studying human relation courses, becoming the president of the PTA, or becoming the CEO of a major corporation. The world will offer you nothing but a counterfeit existence that will LURE you into believing that you are getting somewhere, but as you think you are progressing, you are in actuality, transgressing — going backwards.

Jeremiah 2: 13 — For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns that can hold no water.

God has an unlimited supply of blessings, but the world has a limited supply. That’s what this verse is talking about. One example of a broken cistern that can hold no water is RELIGION. Religion is man’s interpretation of what they think God’s Word should say. Religion is for idiots, for fools — it is for people who cannot think for themselves, but would rather blindly follow someone else’s teaching.

Many people think that because they go to church every Sunday or EVERY DAY, that they stand approved before God. The Word of God does not say that anywhere in the Bible. God’s Word says that we stand approved before Him IF WE STUDY HIS WORD and obey his words.

II Timothy 2: 15 — Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

That is the only way you will defeat the adversary and THAT IS THE ONLY WAY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO RESIST the temptation to fellowship with darkness. If God made the universe and man and woman and all the animals etc., THEN DON’T YOU THINK HE KNOWS HOW TO LIVE LIFE TO ITS FULLEST? It’s so simple. Where is the problem if you are having one? You must keep God FIRST AND FOREMOST in your everyday life OR YOU WILL DEFEATED ON EVERY HAND by the god of this world. That is his job. That is what he does.

Remember the movie “The Terminator”? Most people saw that movie and enjoyed it to a certain extent. Remember that machine? Of course you do. It was programmed to do only one thing — DESTROY. Now John 10: 10b says that the adversary’s ministry is to steal, and to kill and to destroy. So oftentimes, if you are searching for the problem, take a good look in the mirror. ARE YOU KEEPING GOD FIRST? Anything else is idolatry. You could possibly be worshipping your job above God or your hobby or your sport or your girlfriend or even your spouse?! THAT’S RIGHT.

God expects you to keep Him first before your wife or husband. That’s when life really gels and you will develop a spiritual understanding and insight that will make every day exciting. You will have a strong, healthy and happy marriage, not become a statistic. There will be a surprise around every corner when you walk by the Spirit of the true God.

Otherwise you will be deceived, lured and eventually destroyed NEVER realizing your dreams, desires, and the true aspirations of your heart. A fountain has an unlimited supply — a broken cistern has a limited supply.

What choice are you going to make? This web site is for people who desire to keep God first. If you do not fall into this category by your own free will, hit your ‘close’ [x] button and stop wasting your time. God’s Word was written for believers, not for unbelievers.

I Thessalonians 5: 5 — Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

So stop hanging around with the god-rejecters. I admit I have a very serious outlook toward this teaching because, as all of the teachings, it is very important. If you choose to transgress the commandments of the Lord, you will eventually pay a price. Remember, it is never the true God that brings any harm to people. It is the god of this world (Father of Lies) that you will open doors to if you continue to disobey the God and our Lord  Jesus Christ.

I John 2: 17 — And the world passeth away, and the lust [over-desire] thereof: but he that doeth [PRACTICES] the will of God abideth forever.

What is the Will of God? It is the Word of God. PRACTICE it, work at it, study it , Do it until you become the BEST at it and when they see the light in you and the fruits of the Spirit, they will run away THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT YOUR PERSONAL ADVERSARY TO DO WHEN YOUR PRESENCE IS MADE KNOWN to him, run!! Defeat him with the word of God.

James 2: 19 — Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe and tremble.

By fellowshipping with darkness (unbelievers or unbelieving believers), you open doors to devils spirit activity in your life which will drag you down and get you out of fellowship with God. You will eventually become ‘friends’ with the world and just go with the flow of things until the world gets you in a position where it can steal, kill, and destroy you in some way, shape, or form. Let’s go to God’s Word and see what is in this world. It is composed of three things:

I John 2: 16 — For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

Notice how the adversary uses three (3) components to make up his world. The number three represents ‘completeness’ in the Bible. The god of this world copies, counterfeits, and parasites off of everything that the true God does.

The temptation to fellowship with unbelievers or those walking in darkness is very strong and only God’s Word will give you the strength to get away and recognize that this type of behavior is harmful and destructive to your spiritual walk and growth with God.

James 4: 7 — Submit [addict] yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

This at best is the only way to resist the snares of Darkness or so called Gossip trains they want feed to themselves to drag you into their world and out of fellowship with God. Resist the devil and flee from his works, be a Child of light and not a child of darkness, sometimes it hurts to breka fellowship with those who makes a claim to be a child of God but by their works they or their actions does not show it. Do as the work of God says, break away before it too late for you or worst yest destory what you are really made of.

Faithful person God Honors

Today I Am going to ask each of you to ask yourself this question.  How can I be the kind of faithful person God Honors?

Do you want to see the favor of God blossom in your life? If you do, the writer of Hebrews has some advice for you: “show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who faith and patience inherit the promises” (Heb. 6:11, 12).

The writer has in mind someone like the Old Testament saint Abraham, who displayed great faith and patience. Remember when God called Abraham to leave his homeland for a place unknown? Genesis 12:4 displays Abraham’s (Abram’s) diligence: “So Abram went forth as the Lon had spoken to him.”

Remember when God told Abraham that he would have a son, even though his wife Sarah was already 90 years old? (Gen. 17:17— 19). God displayed His faithfulness a year later by giving Isaac to Abraham and Sarah,

Remember when Abraham heard God tell him to sacrifice the son for whom he had waited 100 years? Abraham faithfully obeyed God—and was blessed for his devotion Gen. 22:1—18).

We are to mirror Abraham’s faithfulness. In our attempts to pursue God with diligence, we need to take stock of everything we do:

1. Set clear goals. Olympic athletes don’t begin with a vague notion of becoming an Olympian. Each step of the way requires them to work for a faster time, a higher jump, or an improved technique.

2. Be patient. When Pablo Casals reached age 95, a young reporter asked him, “Mr. Casals, you are 95 and the greatest cellist that ever lived. Why do you still practice six hours a day?” Casals answered, “Because I think I’m making progress.”

3. Be willing to take risks. God asks that we trust Him despite our limited understanding. As the saying goes, a turtle makes progress only when he sticks his neck out. 

4. Be persistent. If God has given you a clearly defined goal and you sincerely believe it to be His will, don’t let doubt or discouragement defeat you. Keep at it and don’t give up.

5. Be flexible. Remember that the process is the greatest learning experience we have. Learn from your mistakes and move on. Flexibility enables you to change as God changes you.

If you want God to honor you, then be the kind of person who honors Him by consistently acting on your faith. Buy acting on this faith, we get to a point of Trusting God and see that he is looking beyond what we can see to what God sees.

Setting Priorities in Your Life

Prayer: I bless Your name today, 0 Lord, for You alone are good. Thank You for Your goodness to me. I am excited about what You have in store for me today.

I want to make the most out of every opportunity. You have called me to be salt and light in a lost and dying world. I am reporting for duty, my King and my God. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse: “And Elijah came to all the people, and said, ‘How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” I KINGS 18:21

Have you ever tried to live with one foot in the church and one foot in the world? Have you ever tried to serve God and serve yourself at the same time. . . to have your cake and eat it, too? That kind of living is akin to straddling the fence.

It is faltering and hesitating between following after God and following after your own selfish pursuits and the false gods of money, materialism, power, and pleasure.

As Elijah challenged the people on Mount Carmel, God is challenging you today to make a decision in your life. If God is truly God (and He is), you need to follow Him with all your heart and give him the best of your life anything less is sloppy seconds.

Half-hearted, fence-straddling devotion to Christ makes God sick Revelation 3:16 – So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

The time is now to get off the fence and serve the Lord with all that is within you. He has a job for you to do, and that job is to let Him have His way in you so that others would smell the sweet “fragrance of His knowledge in every place” (2 Cor. 2:14).

Are you ready to decide? Fences make bad seats and have no place in the life of a Christian! You decide what kind of Christian are you? Or yet what kind of person are you? Then do the right thing. The right action in your life to him will have it’s blessings.


May God bless you and the Lord be with you.

Father , this week is your week. Speak the truth and hope into my life. Give me ears to hear you speak. Grant me discipline to open your word in order to listen to your voice. Whatever is before me, give me what I need at the moment. Even now, I listen to you. May you alone be praised. In Jesus Name Amen

James 5:13 -14- Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms.(14) Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.

Effective prayer occurs when you talk to God and listen to what God is saying to you. When a need arises today Talk to God about it. Upon the authority of God’s word, when you are sick, hurting or have a need call upon the one that will hear and can help.

You will have needs today. You may have needs right now. Personal pride will call you to try and work it out yourself. Stubbornness will just try to wait it out, thinking things will improve.

Consider God’s way, talk to him about it right now and then open his word, letting him speak to promise into your day. When you do, the Holy Spirit will do what only he can do in your life. He will move upon you with peace and give you confidence that God is with you. So be of clear mind and come to God with a humble heart in prayer and speak to him what’s on your mind, and rejoice in his love today.
