Praise the Lord everybody The Lord our God, the Lord is one! He alone is worthy to be praised! I pray you all are enjoying God's blessing. My wife and I are counting our blessings and trusting God as He deals with us each in different ways. I am currently on a consecration that I am modeling after Jacob because like him I'm not letting go until God blesses us. I'm prepared to consecrate as long as it takes for Him to move concerning our situation. I'm asking everyone to keep me in prayer as I seek God for relief from our trials.

"I'm just keeping it real!"
I hear Christians say that all the time after they use vulgar language or say something to somebody that they had no business saying, something meant to hurt rather than heal, something non edifying and sinful in God.s eyes. I have heard Christian parents tell their children, " your going to be tempted by many things and if you can't help yourself when exploring your sexuality then use protection if you have sex, and if your going to smoke weed or drink do it here in the basement with your friends so I can keep an eye on you." I've even heard Christians condone abortion saying "what if the girl or woman had no visible means of support, is in school or was raped?" I've even heard some say "I'm not supporting or raising no more babies so you better go get it taken care of, the last thing the world and you need is another welfare mother!" "I'm just keeping it real!" they say when confronted by another Christian. This is their excuse for condoning sin. "I'm just trying to face reality" they say "just keeping it real!"

To the World all these things sound reasonable, like the homosexual argument, they say "surely if two people love each other regardless of what sex they are God will understand, doesn't the word say that love conquers a multitude of sin?" they ask as they take God's word out of context and misinterpret it. God is a loving God but He is also a JUST God. The Bible says in Romans 6:23   23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  THAT IS REALITY!
When we tell ourselves or our children that sometimes it's alright to sin depending on the circumstances we are condemning them and ourselves to death.

Jesus said "I am they way the truth and the light" that is keeping it real, God's word also says in Proverbs 16:25   25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

"Keeping it real" is just another way of compromising and diluting God's word and laws. God's word has suffered 2000 years of erosion by man and the world, let's not add to it. We don't have to change God's word to fit the times, we have to change the times to fit God's word.

Praise the Lord everybody! For He is worthy to be praised! I pray you all are enjoying God's blessing. I know I am blessed just to be writing this in the comfort of my own home and not from the Public Library or some shelter and Like the "old timers" like to say "Clothed in my right mind and all my faculties in order" yet I know the reason I am not enjoying all the things God has for me is because of my other worst enemy, Myself!

a comic book character once said regarding the environment "WE HAVE MET THE ENEMY AND HE IS US!"  Some times we must look at the man in the mirror, some times we are our own worst enemy. The devil didn't always make me do it. I have been in rehabs and programs fourteen times before God brought me out but the trials I'm going through now are on that level. They are on that level because the problem is not an outside force, it is me, my flesh. My flesh has always been with me. From a child crying out for food and attention to an adult seeking to satisfy it's unending demands. It can be an epic struggle, our flesh against the Holy Spirit of God. Jesus said "... the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." in Matthew 6: 41

Paul speaks often about the burden of the flesh and in Romans 8:1-13 states  8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

If we want to live in Christ we must die to our flesh. We can't kill it because as long as we are alive we have to carry it around with us, no we must die to it so when the flesh comes knocking at your door with sin as it's companion the Holy Ghost will answer and say "The person you are looking for no longer LIVES, here.
My flesh has been my cross that I must take up daily throughout my life, it dragged me through pornography, fornication and drug addiction and that was before I knew it even existed. Once I Got saved and found out what I was up against I realized it was not only the devil that I had to be aware of.

God has delivered me and continues to deliver me each and every day. God has fortified my house to keep out the enemy but I must make sure all the windows and doors are locked. When my flesh tries to open up a window and let the enemy in so it can be satisfied I must call on Holy Ghost maintenance to come and check the locks.

My Brothers and sisters the flesh is not your friend, it is a burden we must carry until that day we receive our glorified bodies, feed the spirit of God in you and not your flesh. I will continue this in my next post.
