The main reasons why Christians struggle to have Christlike behavior and healthy marriages

Why are so many people in the church struggling to have peace and see the fruit of the spirit evident in their day to day lives?  Why are so many people living in either miserable marriages or experiencing painful divorces?  Why do so many people have sickness and disease in their bodies? Why are so many children angry at their church-going parents?  Why do so few people in church truly love each other like Christ? Romans 7: 4-25 New Living Translation 4 So, my dear brothers and sisters, this is the point: You died to the power of the law when you died with Christ. And now you are united with the one who was raised from the dead. As a result, we can produce a harvest of good deeds for God. 5 When we were controlled by our old nature,  sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death. 6 But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law,…

How we talk to our children later becomes their inner voice

Have you ever considered what you say to your children can haunt them the rest of their lives if you speak negative words of death over them?  Conversely, if you speak positive words of encouragement and life that they will blossom like a flower that receives sunshine and water and will see blessings in their lives.  How often do you think and take inventory of exactly how you speak to and treat your own children?   Those who spoke negatively every day to their children as they were growing up will see children who are largely affected in a negative way for the rest of their lives.  Unfortunately the parents will then blame their children and speak out words of condemnation over them causing a huge chasm to expand throughout their lifetimes between them.  Their children will naturally distance themselves from their parents - wanting to stop the onslaught of death words over them.  Then often the parents will blame shift the reasons that their children want nothing to do with them onto their victimized children causing their children to feel hurt deeply and rarely wanting to ever speak to them as their parents need to own their abuse over…

Thanksgiving Peace or Strife?

With the Thanksgiving holiday season coming upon us in America, many people are looking forward to what the holiday truly represents in thanking the Lord for family, blessings and lots of food, but at the same time are dreading having to see certain relatives. The relatives who make you feel loved and produce laughter are those you want to spend time around. But most families have at least one (and often times many) person(s) who they want to avoid like the plague due to various past hurtful comments, condemning looks, snide remarks, prideful statements and other strife that they have experienced coming out of their mouth. 2 Timothy 2:20-26 NKJV “20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 22 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.…

Christ is Returning for a Pure & Spotless Bride….Are You Ready?

Many people who attend church regularly today believe that if they would die that they are on their way to heaven. Most who have any type of leadership position believe they are definitely going to get into the pearly gates with no problems. But what does the Bible say? The only one who counts is the Lord God Almighty. Matthew 7:21-23 New King James Version (NKJV) 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Verse 22 states that "Many" will say that they had prophesied and cast out demons in the Lord's name and done many wonders but the Lord will tell them to depart from Him. Why? It's because the Lord knows their hearts and minds. He knows how they treat their spouses and children. He knows if they are in…

How do you know when you are freed from the enemy? You will feel peace, love & joy

So many Christians are tormented in their minds every day with thoughts that flood them throughout the day from the enemy.  They have no idea that their thoughts are not all their own because the church fails to teach them at a level that they can truly understand. They talk about taking their thoughts captive but fail to give them tools to actually do it on a day to day basis.  What good is it to memorize Bible scriptures yet never feeling at peace, love or joy on a daily basis?  We as a church must do a better job at explaining to people that Christ died on the cross and then gave us His authority to do the very same things that He did while on earth.  We simply must take His authority and walk it out. When we hear a thought that comes to us that causes us to be in fear, anger, take an offense, we must recognize that the thought is from the enemy and to shut the thought down immediately.  So many people have been hurt by their parents growing up or have been molested, had incest or raped and the enemy now has legal…

The Lord Wants To Restore Us To Enjoy Childlike Fun and Innocence

So many people have had the innocence of their childhood stolen by the enemy through a myriad of circumstances (lack of a father’s presence in the home, verbal / physical or sexual abuse, controlling mothers or fathers, sexually molested by a friend, family member or parent, loss of a parent). When a person grows up void of a healthy environment, the enemy is able to hurt them from the beginning and many go their entire lifetimes struggling to recover the innocence that was lost. Many struggle with healthy marital relationships, causing them to choose people who have demons who then torment them even more, causing divorces and having their own children to get hurt in the similar ways that they were harmed. There are few people in the world who know what it was like to grow up in an environment of unconditional love, joy and peace with healthy fun to enjoy a normal life. They never were able to laugh with their moms, dads and siblings as all they knew was arguing, strife and tainted love. They never were able to simply enjoy a walk in the park, bike riding on an adventure, swinging and playing with the true…

God intended you to enjoy your life

One part of a Christian's life that many in ministry fail to talk about is the importance of enjoying one's life.  Yes, so many of us get hurt as a child from father or mother's wounds and then have to play catch up the rest of our lives as our hearts have been scarred and we take our pain out on our loved ones.  Then we end up having more broken hearts when our spouses betray us or abuse us with their pain.  So what is a Christian life supposed to really look like? God wants His people to enjoy themselves in life and to have fun, laughing and teasing much.  Good wholesome fun is good for the heart and the soul. Too many people talk about their past hurts and it only leads to keeping them locked into what the enemy did to them instead of choosing to forgive and forget and move forward into the greater things the Lord has for them.  You can tell when a person has been healed in their hearts as they will talk more about the now and future then the past.  Yes hurting people hurt people. That is a fact.  Healthy people…

God calls us to live a life full of purity and integrity

Today's world tells you "if it feels good to you, do it" and so many "Christians" justify living a lifestyle that is not even close to being pure or of highest integrity.  Then the enemy pulls them into justifying behavior that is contrary to righteousness.  The enemy whispers to them and they have no idea as they think it is their own thoughts, thus rationalize in their minds the plans of the enemy.  Once operating in a more justified sinful behavior, the enemy has them on his territory and the Lord cannot protect them.  People today have no clue how many of their thoughts are from the enemy because they are not in tune with the Lord and hearing His voice.  They are deceived and don't even realize it. So how do we get people who attend church to wake up and understand just how real the enemy is?  How do we get pastors and leaders to wake up and realize that the enemy is constantly at work whispering to them to water down their messages of purity and integrity so as not to offend any of their big givers to the offering plate?  The Lord is coming back soon…

Have you ever thought where your thoughts come from?

Have you ever sat down and thought where your thoughts are coming from? Most people rarely do. They just speak out whatever thought comes to them and then hurt other people that receive those words.  They just state "that's just the way I am - I speak my mind."  They do not have true love and compassion on those that they are speaking to and just expect people to "deal with it." Unfortunately so many in the world have no clue that their thoughts came from the true enemy in this world.  The thought was planted by the enemy, then the person receives it and agrees with it, then speaks it out, hurting all that are within earshot.  It is so important to think before one speaks, to discern what the ramifications will be. It is one thing if the person does not have a personal relationship with the Lord, as who can expect a lost person to be loving, kind, gentle and compassionate with others if their heart is not of the Lord.  But when a supposed Christian, who attends church regularly, and is being taught that we are to love like Christ loved the church, spews forth words…
