#Misunderstood: Understanding the Nature of God

Misunderstood


—–Understanding the Nature of God—–


Have you ever been negatively accused of being something or someone you’re not? Usually you would brush it off, if a complete stranger made accusations about you. You might not see them again and they are not close enough to you to make a true assessment of your character. It’s awkward and upsetting, however, when people who are supposed to know you, don’t know your nature at all. So, you can only imagine how God must feel when people are claiming to serve Him and be friends with Him are misunderstanding and misjudging His character.

How many times have you accused God of being unfair or anything BUT good because He did NOT give you something? Have you assumed the Master was harsh because of your circumstances? This is a dangerous place to be in as a Christian. I would know because when God was trying to break me free of an atheist mindset, I struggled with thoughts like this due to my inability to see God’s hand moving on my life.

Christianese 101: What is the Unforgivable sin?

What is the UNFORGIVABLE SIN?

A while ago, I told someone that I would briefly address the unforgivable sin, which is blaspheme against the Holy Spirit.

Due to jealousy and anger the Pharisees, religious leaders who claimed to follow God, accused the Spirit that Jesus operated in as a demon. Accusing ANYONE who is obviously operating under the power of God as demon possessed or working with the devil would mean you committed this sin ESPECIALLY if it was done to defame and tear down the works that God is doing through them.

Freedom from People Bondage

PEOPLEBOND

You have to go to school, work, or even church again and you’re dreading it! Not because you don’t like the work you do there or the sermons you hear, but you can’t stand it because of the people! The people are literally the worse thing about these places and what’s worse is you’re one of the ‘super’ Christians that are there. People know you’re a strong believer! The truth is, you’re feeling isolated in your faith walk and your now experiencing what all believers experience at one point or the other. You’re experiencing being hated on for following Christ or maybe you’re just dealing with people who just don’t seem to like you because you are you. Well, friend, it’s time to let this people bondage go because it’s pretty much impossible to walk with God and value the opinions of man more than His opinion.

When God Tells You To Exit

ExitBlogSmall

—Need direction on what God’s telling you to do? Read this!—

Have you ever felt like you’ve gone down the wrong path? There was warning sign after warning sign telling you that this was not the door God had for you, yet still you went down the wrong path anyway. You feel like you’ve picked the wrong degree, the wrong job, and maybe even the wrong person to enter a relationship into with. You didn’t listen to God at all, nor did you consult Him when you went down this path, you just went on your own pathway.

The truth is you wanted that woman to be your future wife so bad, you never slowed down to make sure God was actually speaking to you. When it came to school, you simply just went with what everyone else said you’d be good at, rather than listening to God. Your job just ended up being something you chose to just ‘pay the bills’ because you never once in your life just tried to wait on God and what HE wanted.  If this is you, there is still hope if you believe in God. The God you believe in is a heavenly Father who is ready to step in on your behalf, even when you’ve made what you feel like is a mess of things.

Christianese 101: God’s Plan NOT yours

 

GodsPlan

Imagine two people were given a seed, which was placed in the ground to watch over and cultivate. Both people were given an instruction on how to care for the seed to cause it to grow. Person A, was told to hop on one foot near the seed at least twice a day, until he was tired. Person B, was told something similar, but because he had so much KNOWLEDGE about taking care of and growing plants, he REFUSED to take care of the seed the way the instructions stated. No, instead he went to Google and YouTube to research and figure out HOW to grow the type of seed he was given and began doing NORMAL things to take care of a seed he thought was average.

Man A obeyed the instruction and hopped on one foot every day, and immediately saw some type of growth in his seed, whereas the man who became doubtful and discouraged by the instruction saw no growth at all. As man B saw man A begin to get fruit and growth from what he was doing with great ease, he became frustrated and discouraged! ‘Why is this man getting any growth at all? What he is doing is foolish! It makes absolutely no sense according to everything I’ve researched and all I know!’.  Unfortunately for man B, the person who gave them the seed was NOT an average man, but was God, and was the One who gave him the instructions as well.

Christianese 101: God said you’re my WIFE!

wifey_orNAw–>Manipulation, propheLYING, and ABUSE!<–

Ladies, there’s a type of man that seems holy, but as time progresses their real fruit is revealed. They like seeming saved or ‘nice’ publicly, but behind closed doors they are a vicious snake. A man can pray, but that doesn’t make him holy. He can go to church, but that doesn’t make him righteous. Does he really believe in God’s word? Or does he just use God’s name to manipulate you into doing what his flesh desires? In this day and age, where people so easily lie on God and what He has spoken, it’s important to know the difference! Now, I already wrote a blog post about women who hear that a man is their husband(Read about it HERE), but some of you guys don’t have that problem. Some of you guys have guys telling you, you are their WIFE! Sis, if you’re not married yet, or know some single women, it’s time to listen up, because this one message is important! Let’s turn to 1 Kings 13:

Without A Covering

withoutcover_SMALL

–>Trusting God in Your single season<–

Imagine being in a hot and dry desert. Your lips are cracked and parched due to thirst and your stomach is rumbling due to hunger. You look around, but don’t see any water or trees for shade miles around. The skin on your face is scorched due to you not having a covering on your head. It’s not that you weren’t offered a covering at the beginning of your journey. The people who led the tour knew that you would need one and continued to offer it to you. However, you aggressively denied what you can now clearly see you desperately needed. What’s worse is that you fought tooth and nail to bring what YOU thought was an adequate covering to shield you from the burning sun.

You didn’t know the conditions were going to be this bad, you say. You didn’t know that it was going to get this hot, but the tour guides knew. How often do we do this with God? He knows exactly what protection we need, what covering we need, but we refuse the one that He offers. We refuse even His own protection! We live our life without His covering—without His blessing!
