The Purpose of This Site

Once this site was just for me. It was a personal blog, journal or diary of my journey with the Lord. However one day reading it I found that this could also be a real testimony to the world. Evangelism is my heart. Jesus is my life. This is my real account of my Christian walk and revelation that I share with you. In all things take them to scripture. I do not claim to be an expert though I study, research and seek the truth daily. My purpose it to stir your heart towards the Heavenly Father so you can pursue your own Journey with the lord through his word and in spirit.

Thorn




I have always wondered what it would be like 
to see blue skies and the like

where perfection meets rejection and 
those who once wronged you in strife.

Were released from the chains that binded them 
that binded me and set us free.

That dropped us like pride in the mist of religious insanity.

Brother, killing brother sister the same with words of shame and in the same breath bringing pain and playing the enemies game. 

Separating the gifted and the willing and the 
frayed and the afraid.

We have come so far yet sat pedaling in our own strength set limits and recommendations for those to climb the ladder of acceptance left to die in a shark tank.

We pray grace and for love and peace be with you and in another breath spew anger, disagreement and family feud and we hold our bibles clearly in view while pillaging the heart and un-grafting the adopted jew. 

Where do we forget what scripture asks that far from the grinding task of pride that states I need my words to be heard and my pain to be felt but really,  I want my pain to feel you. Ain't no dying to myself as long as I feel my feelings are more important than you.

From a far I sit with eyes cast down, removed your family from my list of lovely ones my temperature is lukewarm ready to spew and you sit there de-crowned and all I have waiting are lovely guns each with a bullet of hatred for you.

Where does this all end.  Where does it take us to?
This Thorn that is so firmly planted inside of me and inside of you.
Where God meets justice, and Confession meets Direction and My Crucifixion pleases you.

John 13:34-35
34“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

The Revelation of a Mighty King!

I have been speaking to different groups that do not necessarily have the same views that I do and I am constantly encountered with the question of why I speak at places where my beliefs do not match. I am challenged that I am moving away from the cross.  In actuality I have never felt more near and more close to Jesus that I do now.  My writing in the last few months has been more pointed and the revelation moving forward like my Daughter who woke me up at 3am to share with me what God has told her is only becoming more apparent as I write.

I remember when she woke up she was fully aware and fully convicted that things are coming to an end.  I do not believe just like scripture says that people do not know the day or the hour but to assume that one who is full of the spirit could not feel the coming of a great and mighty king would seem strange and almost well un-biblical.

Clearly we know in part and we prophecy in part so I do not want to fail in this by stating or overstating something but the revelation of a great and mighty king is coming over his people and for those who have wandered.  Many different types of people are seeing and having dreams of Jesus in their sleep and the time is drawing near.

As people are beginning to create a line in the sand of what they believe and what they do not. People are taking stands against God in numbers never seen before and people are coming to God in the same record numbers a great bringing in of the Harvest is coming.  With the rings of Bells like a church the spirit resonates through every believer that now is the time to write, to worship, to pray to stand in the GAP for others as their fate will soon be set.

There must be an Urgency of a great and mighty King who is coming.  Outside of people believing or not believing in Jesus our Great King I can say to believe or not believe takes no power from who he is or what he will do when he comes.  There is a slight fear at times only because I am being honest that this God will not mince words.  His power will be great, his sword will be swift and his people who know him will recognize and those who do not will run in terror.  It is true I do not make these things up.

I am writing this as an olive branch to those who read but do not know the urgency that is here.  If you have not already notices a great divide is happening between the Sheep and the Goat.  There is a time where we must all hold claim to our relationship to God through Jesus Christ his son who came as a redeemer for all of mankind.  We can no longer blame the church or the bad representation of a Christian we had in our past who hurt us or those around us.  No longer is there a time to wait but to stand to pray and ask God into your life.

The Urgency for his Gospel and Good news in these Dark time has never been so important as it is today and everyday that passes grows only closer to a very important decision that needs to be made on your part.  Every day moving forward is an even more Urgent time for you to say YES.

If you are reading this and you want someone to walk you through the process of giving your life to Jesus and handing over your live to an amazing God then contact me here.

You can message me, facebook me or email me at jamesmb123(at)yahoo.com
I can be found in just about every medium available on the internet.

I will continually pray for you and fast for you as you make this decision because I know that the world and darkness in it does not let go easily.  I know this is not what you were expecting from my post. But the time is now a king is coming and he is looking for his Prince and Queens.  He is looking for his children and he will come with a great and mighty hand. Be Ready.

"If you check the historical facts surrounding other religions, you will find Buddha’s tomb is occupied, Mohammad’s tomb is occupied, and every other guru’s grave is also either occupied, or they have been cremated. But Jesus Christ rose from the dead! That event gave us more than a memory and a historical sentimentality or philosophy. He is the Risen Lord. The One who was raised from the dead and whose grave is not occupied. That does not give us a religion, but a presence full of power"  and a relationship to a Mighty God and Bridge to Salvation and Freedom the world has never known

In Christ Jesus,
James

Chained and Overpowered by Half Truths


THE TROUBLE WITH REVELATION




The interesting thing with revelation is not that it is particularly hard to find, however, it does come in small bursts and if you are not ready to see it, it will simply pass you by.  I feel even if there is a minuscule amount of revelation to this post that is worth it to seek his word for more wisdom as this truth is revealed.  Continue to see the Word of God for more of this truth.

It leaves us wanting more but we have to accept the core of the truth before we can go any further. Sometimes the core of the truth is the hardest for us to accept.  We have been convinced that to have no foundation is far better than to have one but to build a house with these same principles makes no sense so I doubt doing so spiritually will be a very good idea at all.  This is a half truth.  Perhaps having no foundation keeps you from a level of accountability but there is, in-turn no direction which defeats the point to begin the journey at all.

Today I heard something from someone I highly respect and honor. He said the half truths we allow in our lives become the Devil's full lies.  On the surface this sort of goes to be almost obvious.. Something that on the surface at least for a Christian seems pretty simple but something far bigger lies inside this statement.

Additionally Revelation without a foundation is deadly to vision.
Proverbs 29:18-19
18.Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;
but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction. 19.
Servants cannot be corrected by mere words; though they understand, they will not respond.

THE POWER WE ALLOW OVER OUR LIVES

What if all the Half truth in our lives became the power the enemy had over our lives.  What if by accepting half truths by not understanding the word of God or fully knowing what the word of God says about a topic or idea had given the enemy the DEVIL himself or the evil of the world foothold into my life and those around me and even better how can I identify these half truths and see them for what they are and identify them in my own life.  Would this disarm the enemy at the very core of the lie? Making him hopeless to his old schemes. What if by spiritually even entertaining half truth gave entrance of those things into our lives?
Phillipians 4:8-9
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE - THE CORE LIE.

It all started at the TREE of Knowledge and to this day continues to cover the landscape of time.  To Social media and even to the news the lies continue and it is our sheer pride that keeps us from being awaken to this lie and captive by evil both created by ourselves and a snare created by the DEVIL himself.  Sometimes we create a rather fine line here with the desires of our heart and to be led by his word gives us a treasure and something even greater a secret if you will to disarm the devil in our lives and to disarm the evil in others.

If we look at the Tree of Knowledge what Lie did Satan say about the Tree.
He said..a simple word yes but.  This is why God says let you Yes's be your yes'es and your no's be your no's this is because evil starts at the core of a half truth. God in his infinite wisdom knew this.

John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
The Devil is the father of all the lies or from every half truth is birthed a FULL Lie.  We however give birth to it.  It has no power till we accept it. No power on it own till we own it.

Genesis 3:1-5 "God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."3 So, Adam and Eve gained knowledge of the difference between good and evil through direct experience, instead of through instruction by God. (This destroyed the need for relationship/nullifing the relationship between God and Man.)

God said eat of it an you will die God stated they would have knowledge of Good and Evil and What the devil said was a half truth he started with identifying the tree and saying yes...and then he nullified everything by leaving out the complete truth. We know that what Satan said was it will reveal knowledge this was true but what God told them was also truth.  It was complete truth but the information offered by Satan was a half truth.  A Deadly and life changing half truth. God never lied from that point Man was Dead to God without Redemption...Luckily God has a better plan and knew that man has a choice and he will choose because love requires choice.

To Identify this half truth would have changed the way the world have played out its creation story all -together changing the relationship between man and god and sin and redemption.  The Devil knew this. God however in his infinite wisdom knew that MAN has a choice and he made allowances because he is a GOOD AND GRACIOUS GOD. His complete truth. Overcame the half truth and his faithfulness comes through when the lie set to deceive became the Gospel of Truth of Redemption of Sin we now live as Christians.

THE CORE LIE DEFINED

Psalm 106:1
Praise the LORD! Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His loving kindness is everlasting.

The Core of the Lie is that God is Not Good. TO Accept this lie gave power to Evil and made the plot of Satan move forward.  If there would have been no doubt that God was good then there would have been no entertaining the idea to go against God's wishes.

The trick, in the end is to complete all the half truths with the full truths of the word of God.
So that the lies of the enemy can hold no ground and they become ineffective in our lives.

So let's identify these Truths of God In the Next Blog post and Find out how these Truths in Half can be devastating.

Revelation May Break My Flesh But Words Will Never Change Me.

Proverbs 29:18-19 

8Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;

but blessed is he who keeps the law.

19A servant cannot be corrected by mere words;

though he understands, he will not respond. 

---------------------------------------------------------------

Intrepid is the word I look for when reading this scripture.
It is clear that in our understanding of this scripture we find something clear that
a man needs revelation before true change occurs, no matter how much
you are barked at. Asked, or even motivated to do what another man says. Intrepid because these are brave words with perfect meaning that cannot be ignored.

A Servant cannot be corrected by mere words. He may understand but will he do?
I think in this a great system is created in the levels of humanity and spirit. It is that true revelation cannot be undone by mans ways. I believe this is why it says that Gods ways are not our ways.

A mystery reveled but realized everyday that mere man cannot change by being asked. He cannot convert by presumption or by motivation. No for a man a servant of God and even when he is not well versed, When his understanding of scripture is little still he cannot be changed until his understanding becomes revelation. 

This is why you cannot change a man. you cannot force people to believe. you must as Jesus did walk in your fathers way. Those who see will follow and will be changed. It is unfortunate that we make it so much more complex than what it really is and as its been said you can truly loose a lot in translation.

In the sense that his belief comes from true revelation the safe guard that God put in all his children is that only true revelation can change a man. This is a great thing to understand when worshiping, when spending time with the father. Even when you have noticed that you keep doing something that you know you should not. Or in the same sense you see someone else repeating behaviors or actions that are not helpful. It is that they have just not received true revelation.

So should we as children of God like men beating our heads against the wall trying to understand why the world is the way it is continue doing so just like the world? Or should we seek God for a greater understanding? I purpose this: that most desires to see the truth of the world nullifies the truth of Jesus and exemplifies the methods of man. These are the ways of cults, these are the ways of religion gone astray. These are the fleshly ways of the church to build the bigger and the better church and the more perfect christian.

They come to a cataclysmic end. They leave in the wake in its place. People who are burdened and hurt by the ways of man. People who cannot achieve perfection who are disheartened because they have tried accomplishing sanctification without Jesus. If you want to see someone hurt, destroyed, abandoned and alone find someone who has tried to seek God without the aid of the savior Jesus. Then you will find those lost and destroyed by perfection gone astray.

Jesus is the only way to Salvation. I know that for a christian seems to be a lesson in the "whoop tee doo" excercise with a small hand gesture to personify much like the rolling of the eyes sarcasm. In all of this you see people like the Scientologist who have been taken prisoner of building the better you.

I think it is very interesting cause it would seem that even the new church has taken this turn of making the better you. Of building the better church. I really from what I have read in the word of God see no desire or even a pointing to this new and better church. What I do see is a call to the original to the foundation of Christ Jesus. To the feet of the father. To the organic and the supernatural. To the vision maker "JESUS" not a new vision. I do not see this desire to build congregations but to minister to the lost in every city and every town. I see a Jesus who for the most part is building the bride in the sense of the returning not in the sense of the staying and playing. 

Much of what we see is contrary to what God is doing. How is it then? Have we the church not received the true revelation of what it means to be children of God. Have we lost our passion for what we stand for and had to make the place of "Great worship".."Good Food".. "Nice building" our ode to the Father?

Our self-help Christianity must go if we want to impact the world. We are no different than a rather good Oprah episode many times. Using the word of God to increase, character, make ourselves the better you. It really is very very sad. I was hoping to write something rather encouraging and I hope that this will encourage you to read the word of God and seek what Christ wanted to see in the church.

It is no surprise to me that Paul saw himself as Dirty, Filthy rags. He was not suffering from false humility or from a twisted view of himself. He realized it was not about perfecting himself that mattered. What did matter what that he would see himself in the true light of who he was in comparison to his great mission. He knew that being something was not what he needed to be successful but was that Christ could be his all through him by Paul realizing who he was and humbling himself and being used by the hands of God. Paul was not about the top 10 things for a better christian walk. He was not about this things to change and you will be perfected to be like him.

No Paul was about abandonment. He was about a flawed man seeing the face of God and showing it to the world. This is what we are called to as Christians. This is was also what Moses was about. Abraham as well. These men's lives changed with an encounter with God. Abraham was in the Tent, Moses was in the fire and Paul's was on a Horse. Moses found himself face to face with God in a desert after murder and Paul after killing Christians was knocked off his high horse and was blinded for a short time to see the revealing truth of Jesus but only found it once he was blind.

Are we doing God justice by trying to perfect ourselves. Are we spending too much time on how we look and what we are doing and neglecting the very need. The need to share who Jesus is. Moses hit the rock and when he hit the rock the people still went into the promise land. It was not by hitting that rock he changed the destiny of others. It was because the man was that God chose Moses. It was not through any level of perfection he was chosen.

I am saying this all to say this. In the way of the Lord not what you have been told or even where you are what is it God is telling you now. Are you looking for something more rewarding? Because the christian life is not just about rewards. Are you looking for blessing cause it is not just about blessing. It is about a ultimate truth. it is not about how you can improve yourself but it is about the Good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That is what it has been about and will always be about.

Its amazing because as a writer and often times when I have taught even the small amount of times I have always come to this. But we try to make it more than what it is and we discredit what it is we believe. If you came to Jesus for any other reason than the Gospel then I implore you to understand this. Please take a look at that perspective...see if where you have come have you achieved something.

Buddhism is about achieving Nirvana. Hinduism is about achieving freedom. Mormonism is about being your own God. Paganism is about Self Idolatry (ie..being your own god). Christianity is not about Achieving it is about Dying. It is about leaving all that you are and becoming a vessel to be used by God. It is about the Father and about the Son. It is about the impact of the Holy spirit and the greater him in the lowly you. It is about how he is the VISIONARY of the church not man and he has entrusted men to lead in his vision. We must not be misdirected by motive in the light of forgetting why we do what we do. Sooner or later without Revelation we will cast of the Restraint of teachings. We will cast off what we have been told.

Sometimes we can become abandoned in this world, afraid, scarred and left for dead by this world and sometimes the church takes the part very well and for those who have been hurt this way my prayers go out to them. I do however want you to realize this. The church in all of its glory is a reflection of Jesus but the perfection of that revelation for many years has been seen by many churches as making the windows clean from the inside. But really the windows on the outside need to be cleaned as well. There needs to be a two way vision of what my Job is a Christian. Is it to make you a believer or is it to show you and see that In Christ all things come clearer. 

If we take the position of so many other religions and cults. People will not see this revelation of Jesus. We will be seen as reactionaries. We will be seen a people with a cause. People with agenda. I think this is all at a loss. What people should see Christians as is Free people living in the light and revelation of Jesus Christ, Transformed, Saved without Cause and Agenda living a life abandoned to the will of God. This is not a text book description it is mine. But I believe you will see what I mean. We are gathering things. We are making ourselves perfected for what cause? 

I think there needs to be a REAL rewind of the heart to see where we started and what we are heading for. Cause if I became a christian for better program for my kids, better morals and great worship, good food and a wonderful preacher then I truly have lost out on this great revelation. I really need to go back to the basics of the Church. I need to understand and truly read to reveal the Gospel "The Good News" and see just why it is Good News and Not the book of the 10 number one reason why it is Good news. There is something amiss and I believe it can be seen from all directions even the unsaved. 

I think the unsaved can see sometimes without the blinders. Please understand this. Though the cross is foolishness to them the reality of what we are selling is not foreign to them. There is nothing new about our methods. There is no fooling the ones who we have been trying to sell for so long. Your brothers, sisters and friends will not be changed by what you say. Sometimes not even by what you do. But more times than not by what you do. This still is not the complete picture. The real thing is will you support in all situations what you believe without regret, without apology, without holding back this far greater understanding. Will you let emotions get in the way of this perfect Gospel and changing it into a sales pitch for the down and out and the "needy".  Excluding the well off, the wealthy and those who appear to being well.  Is this the Gospel or is it?  Does it apply to everyone or just to a minute few. More importantly are you excluding others who need Jesus based on your personal belief rather than on scripture?

I know this seems harsh but the truth and the harsh truth are important factors. They embody something of GREAT value. The denial of self and the understanding that this is not a exercise

this is a way of life.
