Hard To Bless

pix204

A friend of mine, Rev Dewey Allen, called me and invited me to attend a youth conference they were having at their church. What I know about Reverend Allen is, whenever he call about something kingdom-related, it’s something awesome! I have an awesome time in the Lord every time I accept his invites.

So I rounded up a hand full of youth – about 4 or five – and we went to the conference, which was very empowering! The church gave away gifts, and two of the youth I brought won tickets to the Astros game!

One of the young men gave me his tickets because he was unable to go on the day of the game. I was unable to go on that day too because my family and I were scheduled to be on family vacation that day. So I took the tickets anyway because I wanted to bless someone with them.

To make a long story short, I had a hard time giving those tickets away. I tried giving them to my neighbor but he didn’t answer the door lol. My cousin, who had been a blessing to me… I wanted to bless him with them but he was out of town. The list goes on and on. I was frustrated that it was difficult to bless someone with free tickets to the Astros and White Sox game.

Likewise, God wants to bless us. He gets frustrated because He longs to bless us, but we are so disobedient and uncooperative with Him.

God Speaks To The Unsaved

If you have Facebook, you know what it’s like to get “notifications.” After a few hours have passed, if you check your phone it is very likely that you have a new Facebook notification. Maybe someone’s birthday is today; maybe someone posted in a group you’re in; maybe someone tagged you and 45 others in a post that you’re not even interested in; or maybe someone clicked like on one of your selfies, but you should get a notification after a few hours have passed.

When God saved us as a result of us putting our faith in His Son (The Lord Jesus Christ), He then put His Spirit in us to seal the deal and confirm our salvation. Now that you and I have the Holy Spirit living inside of us, we get notifications from God. He gives us news we can use. He tells us what He wants us to know and what He feels we need to know at a given time. He gives us notifications.

When you’re logged on to Facebook, you automatically get notifications. When you are a Christian, you automatically get notifications from the Holy Spirit that God wants you, as a child of His, to have.

God is all of our Creator, whether we are saved or not. If I log out of Facebook, I won’t get any notifications. However, there is an app called “Messenger” that allows me to receive  a message directly to my cell phone – whether I’m logged on to Facebook or not. When I’m not logged on to Facebook, I don’t have to concern myself with Facebook notifications. However, I do realize it is possible for me to receive a message even though I’m logged off simply because I have installed the “Messenger App.”

One may be unsaved and disconnected from God, but much activity is still going on with God and the people of God. That person just isn’t getting the notifications. Believers are saying hallelujah! Believers are saying “God is awesome!” They’re getting notifications.

But do know this: Just like you can receive a message in Facebook  through the  “Messenger App” when you’re not logged in to Facebook, an unbeliever can receive a word from God even though he is not saved. God has put a type of “Messenger App” in everyone He created so that He can tell them to choose life or death.

“I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.” (Luke 13:3) Such messages come to unbelievers through God’s messenger app He installed in us.

Eternal God

When you see my three children there’s absolutely no doubt that I’m not a virgin.

When you look at the earth, the sun, the moon and stars…there’s absolutely no doubt God is real and eternal and that He has supernatural power.

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – His eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20)

There’s no excuse for not believing in God.

On Judging

pix201

 

If I see a man robbing a bank, I’m not gonna stop him.

If some driver is speeding on the highway, I’m not gonna chase him and tell him to slow down.

If a young man violates his parole, I won’t sanction him.

Why not? I know the law…but why won’t I get involved in any of those affairs? Because I’m not a judge. I’m no law enforcer. I know the law that I may obey the law, not enforce it or be a judge concerning it.

Jesus Christ is appointed to do all the judging and enforcing. I need to focus on my own cases.

“There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you – who are you to judge your neighbor?” (James 4:12)
