Listen up! The devil is the father of lies!

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.

Don’t believe a word that the enemy, his nymphs or people who have openly declared allegiance to him, says. The devil tried to temp Jesus with the things of this world, but Jesus knows who He is and all power is in His hands. He don’t need worldly riches. He made the world!!

Psalm 24:1

The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Listen people, if your peace of mind and your happiness is tied to money or anything of this world… you will be empty forever.

The enemy will tell you that worldly things are the key to happiness, but it’s not. If you don’t have the spirit of God inside of you, then you will stay oppressed, depressed, possessed and be plagued with inner emptiness. You can’t take your money or vain glory with you once you die… This life is short. The enemy’s goal is to distract you and tell you what you want to hear. He knows the truth, but he’s the great deceiver… 

🗣🗣🗣 Wake up! Stop listening to these people who claim to be spiritually woke, but are as dead as a doorknob. 

1 John 1:5-9

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

It all boils down to who are you going to believe? The father of lies or the God of truth?

John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

The enemy will make you think that doing what you want (outside the will of God) is freedom, but it’s actually slavery. It’s slavery to sin, and sooner or later sin will make you pay up… The final cost… it’s a price you can’t afford, but GOD!

The real reason the enemy wants you to stay in sin and reject the love of God, is because he knows how much God loves you, and he hates it! The enemy tells you what you want to hear, and then he goes before God and accuses you of doing things that goes against God. Keep your feelings in check y’all because he preys on your heart and your mind, because he’s really after your soul, and what better way to steal your soul than to mess with you mentally or emotionally? 

It’s real out here, but you can make it! Jesus loves you and died and rose for you to be reconciled to God for eternity! All you need to do is believe!

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Stay in armor my dear friends. I love you all, but God loves you most. Pray for people who have been deceived. Pray for people who know the truth but openly rejects it! Pray for yourself, so that when you are tempted, you will be able to stand and in the end, will be crowned with eternal life. Much love. ❤️

Ephesians 6:10-18 New International Version (NIV)

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 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. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Love gave us free will, to choose to love or hate. He gave us the choice to trust him and be obedient to his Word, or to trust our feelings and take matters into our own hands. Whatever path we choose, we can be sure that his love for us is unfailing. Jesus died for us when we were his enemies. He loved us even when we didn’t have it all together. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of a family like that?  He never gives up on us, and his mercy is new every day! Everyday we have a choice to trust the God who created us, or to trust what feels good at the moment. There is no gray area when it comes to being a child of God. Either you belong to him, or you don’t. We all know the consequences of sin, and the final result is death, but Jesus came to reverse the curse. As believers, when we leave this life, we will pass into life everlasting. This walk isn’t forced on us, we chose faith over fear. We choose to live by what we know in our heart, mind and soul, and not what the world tells us makes sense. As for me, I’ve tried him, and I know that God is faithful. I’ve taken matters into my own hands before, and have done things outside of Gid’s will, and I screwed up every time. Thank God for his grace! I finally understand what Paul means in 2 Corinthians 12:9, that his grace is sufficient! I choose to use my free will, to live for God, through Christ, simply because he’s God, and there is NO ONE, like him! His faithfulness doesn’t have anything to do with how many times I fall, and that’s what motivates me to get back up and keep pressing towards the mark, again like Paul! God’s always there for us as his children (that’s favor), and he’s promised he will always be, even until the end of the world! Now who wouldn’t serve a God like that?

Until you heal from the pain of your past, you will go through life hurting everyone who loves you, including yourself. Moving on is not the same as being healed. Forgive others, forgive yourself and take time to heal.
