As I laid down with Neriah tonight I began to pray: I said now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord our soul you keep, and if we die before we wake I pray Lord that our soul you will take. But then I realized that people really do you die in their sleep, wow. As people we all know that we will die, but nobody knows when they will die… I advise everyone to get right with the Lord, you don’t know when that will knock at your door, you don’t know when God will require your soul from you, take this life that you’ve been given seriously. This life is not your own. You were not created to please yourself. You were created, you were made, the breath that you have in your body, the movement that you are able to make, is to please God and bring glory to his name. For those who wonder, how do I get right with God? This is for you: ask God to forgive you for all of your sins, ask God to forgive you for being disobedient, ask God to cleanse your heart and help you hate sin the way he hates it, ask God to cause you to be born again by his spirit, ask God to cause you to turn from your wicked ways. We all claim to be Christians but Jesus said we must be born again in order to enter the kingdom of God (John 3:3-5). That means your behavior, your motives, your actions, your thoughts, and everything about you will change and you will begin to behave as God, After all we were made in his image (Genesis 1:27). Please do not lean unto your own understanding, please do not come up with your own conclusions of what’s right and what’s wrong; the Bible tells us that God’s thoughts are not our thoughts and God’s ways are higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:9). Let go of all you’ve considered right, and go back to the father. The way back to the father is through his word. Learn of him. Your FOREVER is on the line, eternity is on the line. This life we have here is just a few moments, but how we behave here will determine where we will spend eternity. A few seconds of pleasure is not worth being tormented in flames forever.
As I was reading the Old Testament, I came across how if someone were to offer a sacrifice to God, they had to offer a animal to God that had no blemish. In other words the animal body parts had to be normal, working properly, with no defects & etc., (Leviticus 3:1–in the old testaments killing a animal for God was one of the ways they gave to God, and received forgiveness for their sins). If the people offered a animal that was messed up, deformed & etc., God was not pleased with it; and it was not accepted (lev 22:20). Yet as I was reading God dropped in my spirit: the things people do for God today must be done without blemish, otherwise it’s not acceptable unto our Heavenly Father.
God is referring to our motives, intentions, and how we do things for him, and his people. He is referring to the reasons behind the things we do for people. God does a COMPLETE work in his people to the point he changes our actions, thoughts, emotions, and intentions. Yet, we must examine ourselves, when we do things for people. What’s the real reason we do it? Are you being nice to that girl so you can have sex with her? Are you helping him so you can ask him for some money? Are you taking people places because you want to get them away from you? Are you lending ppl money because you know you want to ask for money next month? Are you doing things for ppl with a nasty attitude? Doing things with ungodly / wrongs motives means our sacrifice/offering/doings for God has been defiled by the evil reason we did it. Do you see how a “godly deed” can be defiled because of the wrong intentions behind it?
Jesus told a parable about people doing things with intentions (Luke 11:5-8). Jesus said if you go to a friend house at midnight asking for bread because you have a guest coming, and you have nothing to give them; they’ll tell you their door is short and the kids are sleep, and they can’t do it. Jesus said they won’t get up because the person is their friend, they’ll get up and give it because the person is troubling/irritating them (like a huhhhh let me get them this stuff so they can go). Yet, Jesus allowed us to see that they gave with the wrong intentions. Remember, We are commanded/ reminded to:
Do all things in love (1 Corinthians 16:14)
Be a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7)
Serve god in gladness (psalms100:2
Treat people the way we want to be treated (mark 12:31)
Do things for ppl because you want to help them, because you would want someone to help you. Do things for ppl because you see God helping you in those areas, and you want to help ppl in those areas. It’s a blessing to be able to give, therefore be excited of the favor God has shown you.
Be honest with yourself, if you fall short, or stumble in these areas, confess it to God. Admit it. God said he will be faithful and just to forgive you and cleanse you of allllll unrighteousness. That means God will help you start doing things the way he wants it done. ❤️
Many of us say we love God, however our inner response to the things of God is a declaration of our love we have for God.

After asking God why a change was not discovered in a person that stated they consistently read the Bible, had bibles in every room, and scriptures in phone, this was revealed to me:
I always wondered what it meant to reach up and grab Gods promises, and God answered me:
The other day I was reading the book of Genesis, and I noticed that before God placed man upon the earth, everything we needed was here: water, food, animals, and etc., (genesis 1). The Bible goes on to say that before it even rained, all the fruits were here with the seed in it (genesis 2:5). God then reminded me that it’s like wise with heaven, before we get to heaven, our mansions are already completed (John 14:2,3). God then dropped in my spirit: Just like everything you pray for is already there for you, so thank me. So I asked why is it important to thank you before hand? (I like to know why it’s important to do things, the effects of us not doing something, or doing something). This is how god broke it down to me: whenever a person says thank you, it’s a indicator that something was ALREADY done for them, when a person says thank you it’s a indicator that they received something. Therefore when we thank god in advance, we receive what he did at the cross. When the devil places symptoms and lies upon ppl (pains, depression, & etc.,) the symptom of it is like they have it, because they can feel it, and see it. Yet when we thank God for what he did for us, it over rides / removes the lies of the devil BECAUSE SCRIPTURE CANT BE BROKEN, god doesn’t break his promises! (John 10:35) When we thank for what he’s done, our thanks to him literally causes us to TRIUMP over the enemy lies. How? GOD WORD IS ESTABLISHED IN HEAVEN FOREVER (psalms 119:89). GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE (numbers 23:19). God is faithful that promised! (Hebrews 10:23). Therefore, Don’t believe the devil lies. YOU ARE FREE FROM EVERY LIE OF THE ENEMY RATHER ITS SICKNESSES, MARRIAGE ISSUES, FINANCIAL ISSUES & etc., How? BECAUSE OF GODS WORD. For sickness the word says by Jesus stripes, we are healed. For your marriage the word says what god has joined, let no man separate. For your finances the word says wealth and riches is in our house. (Isaiah 53:5, mark 10:9, psalms 112:3).
Know that when Jesus died on the cross, you gained a legal right to every promise in the Bible. The reason for sicknesses, poverty & etc., is sin, yet the blood of Jesus blots out every ordinance against us (Colossians 2:14), which gives us a legal right to gods promises. Therefore receive your healing and deliverance by thanking the Lord in advance. Thank God in advance for what your asking him for!!! THATS HOW YOU REACH OUT AND GRAB HIS PROMISES!!! Your thanks is a indicator that you receive what he gave you at the cross. ***Repent, Jesus is coming*** Repent means to turn from your ways, and turn to the ways of God. It means to have a change of heart, it means to have a desire in your heart to stop doing what you want to do, and do what god wants you to do. THIS MESSAGE IS FOR ANYONE SEEKING GOD. DONT let the devil condemn you and make you feel as if some of the promises of god don’t apply to you because you just stumbled. Instead, confess that sin and know that god is faithful and just to forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. In other words God will help you to stop doing the wrong thing, so that you submit to his word. (1 John 1:9).
Before I got saved in 2013 I was concerned about being popular, and material things. I was concerned about the right now world. However, when I got saved my perception/views/outlook on life changed. I realized that none of this stuff will profit me if I didn’t have a relationship with God. I realized I had a purpose in life, and it wasn’t about me being popular, and known, it was about me making Jesus popular and well known. I realized it wasn’t about me creating a legacy to be remembered, it was about Jesus. I realized it wasn’t about me getting my needs met, and being catered to, it was about Jesus using me to meet ppl needs and cater to them. Our life must be a reflection of Jesus: HE WAS USED TO BRING HUMANITY BACK TO GOD, and through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are being used to bring the world back to God. ❤️
Learn of Jesus now, tomorrow isn’t promised. You do not want to drop dead in a state where you don’t KNOW God. You know your boyfriend/girlfriend, parents, best friend, aunt, uncle because you hang around them, been around them, know their likes, and dislikes… but have you been able to learn God this same way? Let god complete you. You can accomplish all your goals, and new goals, and ideas will surface. Yet in God you will be complete. In God you will be content ❤️
A lot of people are going to hell because of pride. They think they are always right (when nothing they do or say is justified by the word of God), they think they are too good to go through something, too good to do something, too good to be treated a particular way… They think they can do what they want, when clearly the bible says we are not our own… Jesus died for us, therefore we ought to live for him (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)… They think they can say what they want to say, when God said let no corrupt thing come out of your mouth, let your conversations be seasoned with the word (Ephesians 4:29, Colossians 4:6). As Christians we should always be willing to LEARN, obey the word/please God; verses make excuses, and point the finger. Take accountability for your actions… Examine yourself… Remember we have to get the stuff out our eye before we can clearly tell someone what’s in their eye (Matthew 7:5)… & for those who don’t believe in God, his word won’t stop working when it’s time to send you to hell because of your disbelief (Romans 3:3-5). You know right from wrong, God is requesting that we treat others how we want to be treated… THATS FAIR. Yet ppl have put themselves on pedal stools as if they should be treated like royalty, while others should be treated like crap… If you hold those characteristics confess it to God and ask for deliverance.
#Repent or #Perish
The Bible tells us that EVERYONE MUST appear before the judgement seat of God. It even tells us why: SO THAT YOU CAN GET REPAID FOR YOUR BEHAVIOR ON EARTH, RATHER YOU HAVE DONE GOOD OR BAD. When you stand before the judgement seat, God is going to decide rather you lived according to his word, or not. GODS GOING TO DECIDE IF YOU DID WRONG OR RIGHT, NOT YOU, NOT YOUR BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND, NOT YOUR BOSS, NOT YOUR KIDS… God is going to determine if you did right in your body in this earth. Therefore REPENT, and learn what god wants you to do NOW! Live for God now, get to know God now! Obey the Lord now! Turn from: lying, homosexuality, gossip, doing things with wrong motives and intentions, sex outside of marriage, stealing, thinking your better than people, speaking bad of people, setting ppl up to be robbed, getting drunk, watching/listening to things that promote the above behavior. IN ADDITION TO THAT, GOD HAS TOLD US WHAT THE REPAYMENT WILL BE IF WE CHOOSE TO LIVE EVIL, THE LAKE OF FIRE!!!
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Revelations 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Do you know what the baptism represents?
Romans 6:3 says when people are baptized, they are baptized into Jesus death. This means that just as Jesus died for sin, when you get baptized you agreed to die TO SIN. In other words, when you get baptized, you make a agreement to put sin down. When you get baptized, you make a commitment to put lying, stealing, sex outside of marriage, negative speaking and everything God hates away. Yet, as Jesus was resurrected from the dead by the glory of God, and lived DIFFERENT because he was raised from the dead to live forever; when we come out of the water we should live a new, different life, FOREVER.
Romans 6:5 goes on to say: if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection. This means if you die to sin, as he died for sin; meaning if you turn from sin, and share the whole “putting away sin” with him, You’ll also share his resurrection! Sharing the Lords resurrection means that Instead of going from the physical death, to spiritual death, you’ll go from physical death, to spiritual life!!! (1 John 3:14, revelations 20:14). This means Your spirit will be resurrected to live forever with God!!! *Your spirit is YOU, just without this fleshly body we dwell in. Please know that this walk with God is not in vain!!!! See the VISION, not just the CURRENT SIGHT. In other words, see the promises of God, see what’s ETERNAL, see his word performed in your life, see the FINISHED WORK, not the temporary current stuff. (2 Corinthians 4:18). Remember, Jesus said scriptures can’t be broken!!! (John 10:35). That means nothing can stop the word of God from occurring, and happening in your life! Don’t be afraid! Don’t be fearful! You are fully equipped, and prepared for this battle! You have the living word of God in you, you have the power of God dwelling in you! As you speak the word of God to those mountains, goliaths, valleys, and deserts. THE SAME POWER THAT MADE THE MOON, SUN, STARS, TREES, ANIMALS, is with you!!! (Romans 8:11). The devil is a liar!!! BE STRONG, BE VERY COURAGEOUS!!!! (Joshua 1:9). God has given you the ability to face unpleasant situations with CONFIDENCE, because we know that the word of god won’t return void! We know that God is not a man that he should lie! We know God looks over his word to perform it! In other words GOD IS GOING TO DO WHAT HE SAID!!! He’s faithful that promised! (Hebrews 10:23). Therefore rejoice and thank him in advance! (Numbers 23:19, Isaiah 55:11, Jeremiah 1:12). WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE! (Luke 1:37)
When I first got saved in 2013, I stopped doing so many things instantly… & I didn’t understand why until I finally bought a bible and read it. One of the things that left was my vile sense of humor. I remember the person I was dating at the time would say “Your not fun anymore, your not funny anymore.” and I remember talking to God about it, and he gave me a answer to give the person I was dating which was “nothing is wrong with laughing, and having fun… But I don’t have to laugh at bad stuff, and sin.” In my sin I had jokes galore, I would make a joke about anything, and anybody, and I would laugh at any and everything. Yet God had to, and still is delivering me from laughing at the wrong stuff. The bible says if you rejoice in someones calamities, you will not go unpunished (proverbs 17:5) . In other words if you laugh at the unfortunate things that occur in ppl life, God will repay you. Rather the person your laughing at, heard it or not. Ppl laugh at others because their spouse left them, someone got beat up/jumped, someone was humiliated, their car messed up, and etc., & not only that people go on to make jokes about it. The bible says love doesn’t rejoice in iniquity, love rejoice in truth (1 corinthians 13:6). In other words we shouldn’t rejoice in evil occuring to someone, nor evil things said about ppl… We should rejoice in Gods promises being fulfilled in ppl lives. We should be happy about the blessings that are occuring in ppl lives: ppl getting saved, ppl getting blessed with homes, jobs, the fact they woke up today, and etc., verses getting excited, and smirking because bad things are occuring. I do not want to laugh at evil!!! #HelpUsLord #Repent #JesusIsComing Say the salvation prayer in Romans 10:9–I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, and that he died and rose from the dead, and Because I believe I am saved. Pretty soon the words that you just spoke will become visible in your life! Your behavior will begin to show that you believe in God! (Proverbs 18:21, romans 10:9)
