I am never sure when the lord gives me a sermon, what it is
going to be. 
I just know and hear  in my spirit, when it is time to set down
and write.
For the past few weeks the Lord has been
showing me people in relationship
with him and also without.
Full of self pity and no self control.
 A people who says to
others "Yes i can forgive my brother/sister but i will
never
forget what they have done to me." Those people harbor hate
within
their hearts and hate is a cancer that grows and grows
until one, even
forgets that they themselves may have been a
part of the problem. It
becomes all about me and what
someone else has done to "Me" not what I
myself have done
to cause the problems nor did to help myself.


To hold grudges within ones heart is to push out the Lord
and his workings
and will bring anger in a heartbeat against
others. There are some people
who spy a word and jump
right on it thinking it is spoken against them and
no matter
what you say, they will run with that word and again the
cancer
grows and so does hate and anger. Oh they may say
"I love that person" but
 can you really love a people's and
or a person, who you blame for just about everything that
goes on in your life?. I say no!


God sends people to speak to someone and they do it in Love,
not to pull
down.. but to build up in him and in rejecting the
word, they in turn reject
the Lord Jesus and his favor. A lot
of people don't want to hear anything
but the sound of their
own misery pumping through their veins. Some even
think in
their hearts I am saved and know the Lord but do they really
know
him? does his word reach right down to the core of
their being, or do they
just jump on a word and boom that's
it? can they really hear the voice of
the Lord speaking to them?
I say not if you harbor ill will in your hearts toward others
and no self control over your emotions. When you are angry
with Gods people, then you are also angry against God himself
and you give the devil a foot-hold in your life. God doesn't
bring anger, Satan does, God doesn't bring hate for one another,
Satan does!! God doesn't bring up old grudges, Satan does!!


We may ask ourselves, "Where is God when I need him most?"
but did you ever think, where was God when things were going
good? God is where he has always been, waiting for a truly
repenting heart. God knows all about us,
he is the one after all
that made us in his image. Not one thought nor deed
is hidden
from an all seeing God, God knows how we're going to react down

the road to the same things that are going on right now  in their
life's and that deep down
inside, are not really willing to turn it
all over to him and let him be
in control.

God gave man a free choice to choose his own path, will it be
heaven or
hell?

I have known people who try and control others by way's
of making them angry,
they will do little things to irritate
and get on someone nerves, like
pretending to drop
something, over and over till anger comes or throwing
childish tantrums or pretending not to understand what
your talking about, leaving a door open or a light on, even
to listening to other peoples private conversation and then
talking about it so much so the other will get angry. 

Trying to turn the one against the other, even in families,
children will
try and pit their parents against each other.
Maybe this is a form of
trying to get attention focused on
self and being in control of anther's  life. A lot of adult
children are also guilty of this mode of trying to control. 

The only one  people like that hurt is themselves, because
the Holy Spirit will
not and cannot work in that house, by
house i mean the body because it is
after all the temple of
the Holy Spirit, it is his house and must be swept clean
daily. It cannot house old hurts and old grudges and
the Holy Spirit at the same time.
 {{Sermon on the Mount
(Matt. v. 23, 24), when speaking of the sixth commandment,
He taught His disciples how impossible acceptable worship
to the Father was if everything were not right with the
brother:  ‘If thou art offering thy gift at the altar, and there
rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee,
leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first
be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy
gift.’  And so later, when speaking of prayer to God, after
having taught us to pray, ‘Forgive us our debts, as we also
have forgiven our debtors,’ He added at the close of the
prayer:  ‘If you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will
your Father forgive your trespasses.’  At the close of the
parable of the unmerciful servant He applies His teaching
in the words:  ‘So shall also my Heavenly Father do unto
you, if ye forgive not every one his/her brothers or sisters
from your hearts.’ (Please read all of mark.) ‘Whensoever
ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have aught against any one;
that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you
your trespasses. It should show the reader that God will
not forgive if you yourself don't forgive and he will
also not answer prayer from a heart that holds such things.


My earthly Dad  (((( I will not call him Father, as my
heavenly Father is
only called that.))))  was as evil as they
come, his greatest joy was in tormenting and causing pain
to someone, who was helpless and couldn't or wouldn't

fight back. When he died I didn't hate him nor think of
all the suffering
my Mother and brothers and sisters
 when through for many years. 
My thoughts were "I
forgive you for all the wrongs you did and i hope and
pray
you were saved, before you died." I killed the cancer
of hate and anger, oh
i could start digging and pulling out
emotional scars and or even looking at visible ones on my 
body but what good would that do? No hurt is so great
that the King of Kings and Lord of Lords won't be able to
handle and to hang on to
past hurts means a lack of
control and  like i said before gives Satan a big toe-hold
and stops God's work in us


In dealing with people, there is also a time to let go and
move on. Lets say God puts you into a persons life to bring
 them his word, or truth about themselves and the hindrances
that is keeping them from a full relationship with God and
his son Jesus. Not as a know it all, but as a friend who loves
Jesus and most times has been there before you and has
learned to listen and hear what the Lord says. Jesus will
try anyway he can through love to help that person know
him. God also knows the ones who will listen with an open
ear and heart to his word. At any given time he will also
send someone into your life, to jerk you yourself back on
the right path.


No not everyone will listen to Gods servants but the servant himself/herself might need  to take a good look at where they
are in Christ and sending that one person, where they will
listen or not, helps you also to grow. Where is the stopping
point, when can you know someone isn't going to try and
change or even really try and understand why the Lord has
sent you and or why the words spoken are falling on deaf
ears and it is time to move on. Have you have ever heard
children argue, "No I didn't do that, she did it or he did it?
they learn very early to put the blame on others, most
children outgrow this but others take it right into adulthood.
I heard a dear mother ,talking one time about a man
who had murdered her sixteen your old daughter. They
asked her if she hated the man. She had this beautiful joy
in her face as she spoke. "I could never hate,  there isn't any
room in my heart for hate. I forgive him for what he did
to my daughter and I pray for his soul." I thought about
what she said and she was right. If she had let hate and
bitterness fester in her heart, then he would not only have
taken her child's life but her own as well, she would have
unknowingly gave him control of her emotions. She herself
was in control and thats the way she kept it, leaving it all
in Gods hands through her prayers for this man.


1 Corinthians 13
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and
have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling
cymbal. 

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all
mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so
that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am
nothing. 

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and
though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity,
it profiteth me nothing.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is
not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things,
endureth all things.

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies,
they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease;
whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 

9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which
is in part shall be done away. 

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as
a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I
put away childish things. 

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face
to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as
also I am known. 

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but
the greatest of these is charity.


We the born again believers, who are saved by the grace
of God the Father and his son Jesus Christ's death on the
cross for our sins, can also become in a sense a type of
controller if we don't back off ourselves, when we know
our teaching is falling on ears that will not hear. I know
some of you reading this, have had a family member or an unsaved friend and wanted so bad to get them right with
the Lord, that you pushed and pushed until even anger
came over you that they wouldn't listen, that might just
be your time to back off. Some people would rather hear
a stranger then a friend or loved one. If after a time, you
feel someone isn't listening nor hearing you because of
their own controlling spirit "I know what I am doing, no one
is going to tell me what to do!!!" then it is time to move on.


I myself have tried to talk to people that no matter what
you say, They jump in and start talking over you, Oh, I
know this and I know that and i am where ect!!!..No way can
they hear the voice of the Lord, because when he speaks
they talk over him. The Lord sends his servants to
represent him, yes he does at times speak to people out
loud but most times it is the servant with Christ living
inside, that will speak his words  to reprimand in love and
to bring forth fruit. What good is a piece of rotten fruit to the Kingdom of the Lord? Rotten fruit is fed to the swine or
tossed in the trash. A swine is a greedy thing eating the
most nauseous food. They love to wallow in their own filth.
Some people are the same way. They would much rather
wallow in their own filth, then admit they may be wrong in anything. Never fall into the trap of a controling spirit!!! 

Even though God does send his servants with a word, the
very best way to get full direction, on how to live a holy life
in Christ, is to clear your minds of all worldly things, curl
up with the bible, God's word and ask the holy Spirit to
teach you  and be ready for a real reprimand, if you are
not truly trying to walk that pathway to heaven. God bless
you all and please remember.. this is written in Love for
His Glory and the Kingdom to come.

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on
his law he meditates day and night. 

Psalm 1:1-2

We believe in His vicarious atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of  His blood on the Cross.  We believe in the resurrection of His body from the tomb.  We believe in His ascension to heaven.  We believe in His personal, imminent return.  We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit.  We believe in justification of the believer by grace through faith.  We believe in a literal Devil, who is our adversary.  We believe in a literal heaven for the redeemed and a literal hell for the lost.  We believe in the infallible rule of interpretation of Scripture to be Scripture itself. 
We believe in the requirement of implicit obedience to the expressed  commands of Christ as the standard by which He will judge our love for Him.
