HEAR NO EVIL!!

Praise the Lord everybody for He alone is worthy to be praised!! God is a wonder to my soul, He never ceases to amaze me. The key is obedience. God has proven to me over and over again that He knows what's best for me, in all things.  Every time I try to figure out my own way things get tangled up but when God whispers in my ear "do this son" even when it makes no sense, when I am obedient I get blessed.

I'm about to get blessed again because God has put it on my heart to write this third segment of a series called "Hear No Evil." Some of you might ask "where is that in the word of God?" and I would say "?it's in there." In Timothy 4:2-4 God's word states  2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Paul also states in Galatians 1:6-9   6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

We have to avoid false prophets and evil doctrine because they are sent by the enemy to lure us away from the truth and from the author of that truth, Jesus Christ. My mother who was raised a Christian and still claims Christ as her Lord and savior has this habit of opening her door for every religious group that knocks on her door and she accepts and then reads their paraphernalia. She does not use the opportunity to evangelize them rather they evangelize her. Now my mother is so confused in her doctrine that she has incorporated something from each one into her beliefs on serving God.

This is why it states in 2nd John verses 10 and 11    10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.  

So when that nice old Jehovah's Witness couple comes to your door either preach the gospel to them or bid them to move on from your door. I know the truth, God has revealed it to me and I don't need to listen to or study any other so called "truths." Our Jobs as Christians are to evangelize not be evangelized, bring light to darkness and not be overtaken by the darkness.

SPEAK NO EVIL!!


Praise the Lord everybody! because He alone is worthy to be praised!!!! I don't have enough words to describe how I feel as God prepares me for the "stretch run" in these last and evil days. I have received a new anointing, a fresh infilling and a renewed vision. I have sought a closer, stronger and more consecrated relationship with Him and He has granted my request. I have a more obedient spirit and I have cleaned out my spiritual ears so that I can hear when He speaks to me.

In my last post, "See no evil!" I spoke about the eye gate and the importance of keeping it clean and holy. Today I am continuing with what God has been dealing with me about, the power of the tongue. The word of God says in James 3:4-10    4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.

5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:

8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.

10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 

Words have power! Power to uplift and power to tear down. In the body of Christ it is not unusual to find gossip and back biting going on. Souls come in broken down with sin and abused by Satan only to be shunned and verbally slapped around by older "established" Christians who make new converts feel like they're going through "hell week" at a college Fraternity. This why God said in His word in Ephesians 4:29-32  29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

We must stop using our mouths to destroy our brothers and sisters in Christ and also stop chasing away new converts and sinners who are searching for deliverance. James 1:19 was correct in saying  19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

We need to take out time to hear from God before we speak into another persons life whenever possible, no emotional rushing to judgement, no quick saying of "doth sayeth the Lord" before we hear the Lord really say it.
Proverbs 6: 16-19 states    16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

So let us be careful not to let any corrupt communication come out of our mouths except that which God has ordained for the chastisement and edification of His people. Let us encourage and not discourage with our conversation, both verbal and non verbal.

SEE NO EVIL!!

Praise the Lord everybody!! Praise Him in the morning! praise Him in the evening!! praise Him when the sun goes down!! because He alone is worthy to be praised! something good is about to happen, something wonderful is in store, I feel it in my bones. God is about to do something special. Bless His holy name!!

Since we stopped watching certain T.V. shows and started spending more quality time in God's presence we have been blessed with more restful sleep. less stress and more joy and less pain. We have a new anointing!!

The word states in 1st John 2:15-17    15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

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.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

I had to get real with myself so that I could get real with God. I was caught up in the lust of the eyes which is what the media counts on, they call it the "cliff hanger" or "the hook" their goal is to get the world hooked on their "product." The world says "sex sells" weather it be homo sex, hetero sex, metro sex or extra marital sex. The world also loves the anti hero, the reprobate, like Walter White from Breaking Bad, Tony Soprano from the Sopranos, both "likable" criminal killers. there's Olivia Pope from Scandal, Cookie and Luscious Lyons from Empire and Annalise Keating from How To Get away With Murder, all dysfunctional people who have no problem lying, robbing or killing to get their way just to name a few.

These are the people the world wants us to idolize.  These are the shows and characters we can't wait to watch and talk about week after week. Not to mention the onslaught of Homosexual couples that are now featured on just about every show. It's time we open our spiritual eyes and see what the enemy is trying to do.  How do we protect our eye gate? Where do we turn for entertainment? I remember to whom I used to turn,  who held my attention just like an episode of Law And Order SVU does today. Jesus Christ.

I am not the Man of God I could be, or even used to be because my eyes have wondered from the prize and now I have to repair the damage that has been done through my "eye gate" over the years. Job said in Job 31:1   I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?

I am making a new covenant with my eyes, not to watch the unclean thing or shows with no redeeming value at all. In this multi media age it's not easy to consecrate your eyes but with God's help I'm going to try. If I follow His instructions how can I fail?
