Jordan For Jesus #021 "Watch Out (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-08-08 11:59:15
There are many people, in the world, who call themselves "Christians" but they do not follow Christ or believe in God's Word, the Bible. Don't be deceived! Just because someone says they are a "Christian" doesn't mean they truly are. You will know a tree by its fruit. One who has been born again has the desire to pursue the heart of God.
If you are pursuing everything but God, your faith is not genuine. A person with genuine faith is delighted in the Word of God which is the Bible and follows after Christ with all their heart relentlessly determined. Don't be deceived!
Just because someone says they love God does not mean they actually do if they do not love the Word of God, the Bible. If someone says they love God but not the Bible, their faith is not genuine.
To love God is to love the Word because God is the Word. Because the world tries to redefine Christianity, today, there is a big difference between being a Christian and actually following Christ. The world has made Christianity all about love.
They think God is so loving He agrees with everyone's beliefs forgetting what God believes. The world chooses to make itself its own God by following what it believes is true rather than making the one true God of heaven and earth their God and following what God says is true.
The world is not God, nor are celebrities in Hollywood God. The one, true God of heaven and earth is God. There is no other God besides Him. God doesn't agree with everyone's beliefs. The Bible talks about what God believes and what He says is true and untrue. Right and wrong. God is love but the world has forgotten that God is also just, righteous, holy and pure.
The world leaves out the Bible, the truth. Love is not agreeing with others but it is being honest with others. That is why God has given us His Word, the Bible, which is the TRUTH. Because the world is sharing half-truths about GOD instead of the whole truth, the world's love and faith is not genuine.
Don't be deceived!! Way too many Christians are being deceived by the devil because of their ignorance of God and His Word, the Bible. Satan's biggest weapon is a person's ignorance of the Bible because knowing the truth of God, in the Bible, sets you free from satan's lies.
You become dangerous to satan having the wisdom of God, Which is given through the Holy Spirit, to know and understand right from wrong. Why? Because knowing the truth, which is God and His word, you won't be deceived by satan and his lies anymore.
So if the world is turning against God's Word, but saying they are for God, you know their faith is not genuine including celebrities in Hollywood. If it does not line up with God's word, which is the Bible, do not fall for it. Don't be deceived!
Listen to the truth. The Holy Spirit is your guide. Let the Holy Spirit guide you into all truth so that you may abide in the truth and not be easily tempted and deceived by satan and his lies.
When satan tempts you not to care for others, remember who God is. God cares. Don't listen to satan! Tell him to watch out because you know the truth and will speak it unashamedly,
God-confidently and fearlessly in the love of God for those who desperately need to know it and be set free by Jesus Christ. Don't withhold the truth of God from others. God didn't withhold His son Jesus Christ, who is the truth, from you did He? Ok then, don't withhold His message from others.
Only the truth sets you free and until you know Him as He knows you, you will never be truly free.
"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32)
"Cast your cares upon the Lord for He cares for you." (Psalm 55:22)
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6:12)
"What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ." (Philippians 3:8)
Slightly Obsessed #192: Heaven Is Calling: Consider Jesus
Some days we can barely hear it. Other days it drives us to our knees. But it’s always there; that persistent tug in our souls. Whether we trudge through our days or chase the stars of fame and fortune, we can’t drown out the cry that sounds silently in the pit of our being, jarring us with its urgency and moving us with its tears.
No matter what you may be going through in life, I want you to know that God's grace is sufficient for you. You may have messed up, you may have failed, you may have gone the wrong direction, you may have gossiped, or much worse, but God wants you to know that it does not define who you are. He does. He and His grace is much more powerful than anything you might have said or done. Grace always shocks. It always amazes, and it always stuns. Grace is what we all need. It's what everyone groping around lost in the darkness needs to know.
Slightly Obsessed #191: You Can Give Others the Gift of Courage
My father lay propped up in the hospital bed, his face ashen against the white sheets. My step-mother and I huddled around him in the cramped space of the progressive care unit in which he was recuperating. He had suffered three heart attacks in the space of one month. None of us had gotten much sleep in the last few days. So far, we had seen little of either the hospitalist in charge of his care or the cardiologist on staff.
Slightly Obsessed #190: A Warbird’s Lesson
On a recent hot July day, we took in an air show in our town. Vintage planes, including a couple of impressive old warbirds, sat majestically on the tarmac for inspection as we darted from wing to wing to find relief from the withering heat.
These planes are still operable, so although some of them were open for people to walk through, the cockpits were off-limits for obvious reasons. No one wanted a tragedy to happen because an unauthorized person tampered with the controls. People who don’t know what they’re doing shouldn’t be in control.
Slightly Obsessed #189: The Calling
The sound must have been a maddening echo that haunted him at first, tormented by the rooster’s crow that mocked his empty proclamation of loyalty. For three days, his faith lay in the grave with the Savior’s body, darkened by the memory of his public desertion.
Slightly Obsessed #188: Freedom
He was shouting “Freedom” as he plowed his car at twenty-one miles an hour into the granite monument engraved with the Ten Commandments.
A video posted on the suspect’s Facebook page depicted the man in his car facing the monument as a women’s voice, presumably on a car radio, asked, “Where do you go when you’re faced with adversity and trials and challenges?”
