Dating in Modern Days Pt.2🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️💑💑💑

Happy Friday !!

Today we will be going with the second part of Dating in Modern Days. I appreciate and thank the people who bother to read the last part. We left the first part in that marriage is a covenant and that having an active sexual relationship outside of marriage is definitely not Okay. I speak from experience that being sexually immoral at the end it only takes you deeper into a hole of despair that you feel there is no coming out from. Sexual Immorality is any sexual act that brings pleasure to your body for example Adultery(infidelity) fornication( premarital sex, masturbation).

There was a time in my life that masturbation and pornography was my escape from the chaos that was my life. My head space was chaotic and my heart too; I tried to fill a void and tried to take control of a situation that was out of my control. I descended into that depravity after I was sexually abused as a child in my home country. I was traumatized and that was the only way I could “control” my life in my way of thinking.

To start dating your spiritual life cannot be a chaos; that is a big no, no. If your spiritual house is not in order how will you keep your marriage or house in order. I’m going to sound so cliché but one thing you need to do is put your want to start dating in prayer; ask God before taking that step. You might feel that it’s time; however you do not know what God has in store for you. Many of us lack wisdom to make life changing decisions and we pretty much screw up when we take the wrong one.

 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

James 1:5

 Many people are risk takers in the body of Christ and outside of it; there are opportunities where you have to be one but this area it is not. Taking a rash decision without counsel will bring huge changes to your life that will follow you until you meet our maker. Patiently waiting for the man or woman who God has for you; it’s a small price to the blessing that will be your life after you are married and before; because you waited a lifetime for that person. You making a rush decision could bring pain and suffering as well heartache to your life just because you thought it was what you need. I will be clear and I mean no offense but no one in this life knows their own needs; the only one that those is God. He is our creator; many of us were in darkness and walked in darkness did we think we needed God; a lot of us would respond with a big NO. That’s because we humans let our emotions and heart control our minds and guide every decision that we make; instead of leaving everything in God’s hands.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
6in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight

God knows you! He knows your every need. Leave everything in his hands and if you can’t wait then start praying fervently just like Hannah did for her Samuel and God will hear you prayer; don’t get frustrated if he does not answer fast; keep persisting but don’t make rash decisions.

1.Corinthians 6:14 

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

One of the biggest mistakes believers do is that a lot of them marry people of a different faith or unbelievers. The bible is specific and cuts down to the bone; how we interpret what is written is up to us. I’m going to sound like a prejudiced person and that is not my intention so if you feel offended; forgive me but it’s what it’s written in the bible. Do not marry someone who is from a different faith than yours ; I seen it happen to many. They marry someone that is from a different religion or an unbeliever and end up converting to it or leaving the church altogether ; that’s a big no in Christianity. We are supposed to bring people in not leave. Many of my family members have married people of other faiths that have taken them out of from the church and or driven them to a different religion; do you know why? That’s because they did not wait on God, they decided to take matters into their own hands.

1.Corinthians 7:39

A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, but he must belong to the Lord.

When you marry someone of a different faith you bring discord into the marriage because your belief might not be the same as theirs. Where do you draw the line? remember that you can’t be with a foot in and a foot out.Marriage is a unity of two people becoming one; not to keep them separate because y’all can’t decide in which church to congregate, on which beliefs to raise your children’s in or none at all. At the end your children will suffer, marriage and yourself will suffer because of decisions that you had the power to change before they were taken.

Overall what I’m trying to let you know is that wait on God, don’t rush. God has the perfect timing for everything, the best thing you can do before you start dating is make your relationship with God stronger as he is your bridegroom. That’s the most important thing that you can do; focus on that relationship that the rest will come in his time and not yours. I hope you were able to get something from this post series.💕I love you all and want the best; God is coming and it’s time to be ready for our bridegroom. Shalom🌸🌸✨✨✨ don’t forget to leave a feedback at the bottom I love talking to all of you.💕💕

Tis the season

 

 

Hello,

It’s the holidays but most importantly around the world is the month that we celebrate the birth of our savior(which we actually don’t know if it’s in this month or not to be truthful). However I’m excited this year for this holiday because the youth from our church will be giving to the community instead of only just receiving. We have some activities that they will learn and appreciate from. I won’t tell what they are about but I will upload some pictures on the next blog and will talk about what they learned or took from that experience. 

We are excited to be able to give back and demonstrate the love and grace of our God. It will not be easy for many of us; seeing the loneliness and burdens of many. Sometimes I wonder how Jesus did it to teach and minister to a bunch of people that were burden with so many things. He had to have an abundance of patience and faith- I mean after all he was human  too- to be able to inspire many to leave everything behind to follow him. This was a man that was born a in a manger, he was born the same way everyone is born. And he has inspired millions over millions of people to follow his teachings. 

O come all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
come ye o come ye
To Bethlehem Come and behold Him,
Born the King of angels
 come let us adore Him
 come let us adore Him
 
come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

 

I’m so thankful for the opportunity to be able to be here in this day and time because the Son of God was born to save me and all of you. Let’s hope that we remember this day as the day that our savior was born and let’s appreciate the miracle that he was and still today.  The one that was born in a manger as a lowly person and was crucified on the cross at CALVARY as a criminal for the salvation of  everyone who wants to be saved. 

Christmas tells me

The Gift that Mary holds

He’s Peace on Earth, Immanuel

Wrapped in swaddling clothes

Christmas tells me

Oh, if it tells me anything

It’s our Maker in a manger

Our Savior and our King

Oh, God so loved the world

He left His throne on high

He came to be with us

One quiet holy night

And the greatest gift of all

He offered everyone

For God so loved the world

 

No Longer Slaved….⛓⛓⛓🗣🗣🗣💕💕💕

World Do You Know…???

That Jesus paid the ultimate price for me through blood, sweat and pain in in the hill of Calvary on top that CROSS. 

World What Do you See..???

Do you see a beautiful face, a beautiful body, a degree, pedigree, wealth, religion, sex, addictions or much more….. My Jesus saw all of that and he still died on that cross, still the cup was passed through him for him to fulfill what was written and proclaimed.

Reader What Do You See..???

Do you see the words flowing together… Do you see the theological and Spiritual side coming down together… What do you really see??? Sometimes the blind leads the blind and that brings a bunch of problems in your walk with God. Maybe the church as a whole member should focus on the homeless, the sick, the abused and on people needing help from any other circumstance then who has the bigger church, the newest car, phone, clothes, hairstyle… whose worship group is going big… Pastor’s and ministers with multi million dollar houses… what a hypocrisy; after all didn’t Jesus ask of the rich young ruler to give everything away to the ones in need and to follow him.(Mark 10:17-27)

Isaiah 40:7-8

The grass withers, the flower fades
    when the breath of the Lord blows on it;
    surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades,
    but the word of our God will stand forever.

The church has become a joke a way to get rich and famous; then to truly live the lifestyle of the Lord. I don’t say it because I’m envious of you but because it’s time that we wake up to the reality that we are living in. How can people truly come to Jesus when we don’t give testimony of the change within us. Sometimes change happens in the inside first then the outside or sometimes it happens on the outside then the inside… but if JESUS CHRIST freed us from the slavery of sin; there has to be a radical change because he doesn’t do things by half a measure. 

All those against Him will fall
For our God is stronger
He can do all things
No higher name we can call
For Jesus is greater
We can do all things 

/ Bethel/ We will not be Shaken

John 3:3

“Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.””
‭‭

Hello everyone I hope that you had a beautiful and blessed thanksgiving with family, friends or with members of the church. Our Thanksgiving was done at church so that people that had no family were able to come and pass that beautiful celebration together as family in Christ.

On today’s post I wanted to talk about been reborn again. Do you know that chapter in the bible where Jesus is talking to Nicodemus the priest. Where he asks the famous question…..

 “How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born again?“( John 3:4)

When I first heard a pastor preaching in this chapter I got that look in my face where you are thinking to your self ” Oh My Goodness, is that even possible???” and yes my intelligence came to a sudden stop; I was in that moment being Nicodemus with my really dumb question. However when you think about it; it’s a reasonable question I mean this guy( Jesus) was lifting up dead people, curing sickness, delivering people, and he was proclaiming to be the Son of God( which now we know is the complete and utter truth) but back then people were seeing all of this and they had questions like this. But what took me back was what Jesus responded after Nicodemus ask him another question.

John 3:10

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?”

Seriously I don’t if you guys hear the sarcasm in the way Jesus responded to that. I mean maybe it’s my imagination but every time that I read this chapter it just makes me laugh because I feel like I’m hearing Jesus saying that to him sarcastically. I might be wrong but anyways the way Jesus responded is everything. I mean we have a high priest with a curiosity problem; asking the Messiah to explain how he can do all that he does. And even though Jesus answered him; he still couldn’t understand what the Lord what’s trying to tell him. Him being a priest he should have some kind of knowledge or wisdom I would dare to say; however he was behaving as a common person. In that time that Jesus walked on earth the high priests of were men obnoxious, prideful, greedy and really hypocrites.

John 3: 5-7

“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6.That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7.Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Jesus wasn’t speaking of a physical rebirth as if it were Greek mythology but as a spiritual one.  If your spirit is tied with hatred, shame, guilt, cruelty, mercilessness, anger, rebellion; how then are you suppose to have a connection with God. God is love, mercy, love, grace, forgiveness; he is the complete opposite of us humans. Yesterday my brother came over to the house with his family and the cutest thing was with them(talking about this cutie pie in the picture) he was playing around; laughing and at one moment he got mad with his mom because he want to spin in a chair but his mom wouldn’t let him; because he could have injured himself. However after he got over the anger not even 3 minutes later; he went to his mom and gave her a kiss and hug. Children have this huge capacity for love and forgiveness, why don’t we the older generation have that.

We are quick to anger and hold fast to hatred. Maybe life has treated us horribly and we might have scars and wounds in our bodies, soul and mind. But when we come to Jesus we are suppose to be like a child because if we do not have that attributes that many children have we are not going anywhere. A child has not hatred, they don’t discriminate between race, ethnicity, religion, sex , political views. We definitive need to be reborn again in the spiritual image that God’s wants us to.

Luke 18:17

“Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.””

Through the eyes of God💕💕🗣🗣🗣🌎🌎🌎

Hello,

Today’s blog post we are going to be talking about impact. On Saturday afternoon the youth had an activity at church. We watched a christian movie called To Save a Life; I remember watching this movie on my teenage years with the other youth group that I was involved with. This movie has a strong message about actions, consequences and the impact that you can have on someone’s life as other teenage topics that need to be spoken  about at church.

To Save a Life is a movie about a young man with big dreams  but all those dreams come to a stop when his childhood friend commits suicide in front of the school; and he starts to question his lifestyle choices. This movie speaks to the rebellious teen, alcoholic, depressed, suicidal, promiscuous and to the fake(hypocrite) christian inside of us. A lot of Christians are fake nowadays and I include myself in that list. We put so much high standards that at the end those standards choke us. Moments when we don’t allow weakness to show because we are afraid to be criticize by our own brethren, by outsiders and we keep walking as nothing has happened in our lives or as if we are made of stone that nothing can move us.

Luke 12:2

There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.

 It says in the bible that by his blood we are freed of sin but instead of being slaves of God by our own free will we have become slaves of our flesh. Life is so beautiful with all of it flaws but we don’t notice because we have become slaved by our wants and desires. I tried to show the teens through this movie that every action that we do or take has consequences and that the impact that we can do as Christians can be an amazing one or just completely wrong. They learned that through the mist of trials and tribulation, joy and fear God is there beside you. Through what was happening to  the teen they were able to see God’s hand and his immense Love toward us.

Life is not black or white it has a middle space that is gray. They were able to see that even though you can’t see God or feel his physically; you are able to see his work in your life, family and friends. That bad influences or friends can corrupt good morals. That God is the only one that won’t forsake you; that an action can create a chain reaction that will glorify the Lord. One teen gave a testimony and he said that when he was living in California the youth he was part of saw the movie and they decided to create a christian group in school and to eat all together in school during lunch and he tells that many youth that didn’t know Christ were able to come to his path through that action.

Psalm 138: 7-8

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. The LORD will accomplish what concerns me; Your loving kindness, O LORD, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

We as christian have the opportunity to create a big impact on this earth and the lives of it’s inhabitants. Jesus gave a commandment before parting from this world that we make disciples of the people living in it but have really done that.? It’s a question that we need to ask daily to ourselves.

Shalom💕💕💕🗣🗣🗣

No limit to the Holy Spirit🛤🌈🌌

limitless-edit

John 3:34 For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.

Today I’m going to be speaking about this bible verse that God gave me. Not many will like what I’m going to be speaking or writing about; however it’s necessary for us to dwell a little deeper in this section that many don’t even go there. Many churches, minister, worshipers and christian are passive in this. Many believe that the Holy Spirit is a being that is dormant in us; that his only function is to guide us and bring peace in our hearts during a difficult trial. And some believe that you are not supposed to have the Holy Spirit; that the Holy Spirit was only for the disciples and Israelite that were baptized after Jesus was resurrected.

Many american churches and non-american have taken the manifestation of the holy spirit from their churches because many believe that is not actually the Holy Spirit manifesting but the person is acting or it could be a demonic possession. In the bible it is written that after Jesus was baptized in the waters the Holy Spirit descended upon him.

Matthew 3:16

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.

The word alight means to settle or stay in the dictionary. After his baptism in the waters he was guided by the Holy Spirit to the wilderness so he could fast for forty days and forty nights. He was tempted multiple times by the devil and he refuse every single offer that the devil made to him. The holy spirit was already guiding him in here for the miracles that Jesus would do after those fasting days and nights. 

Matthew 4:1

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

Jesus did many miracles after his baptism in the waters and with the Holy Spirit. For example we have the Weddings of Canaan, woman with bleeding flow, the rise of Jairus daughter, we got various deliverance from demonic possessions.

Mark 5:27:30

When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak,28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.”29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”

In the bible it those not speak of any miracles of Jesus before his baptisms( in  water & Holy Spirit) but it those give account to those after he was baptized. When God baptized his son with the Holy Spirit he gave the Spirit without limit and his son was able to do all of this miracles that made him known through Israel. Another example would be the day of the Pentecost and the baptism of the Holy Spirit to those there. 

Acts 2:2-4

And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.

It’s says in the book of Acts that they were speaking in different tongues and those of the nationality of the tongue would understand them speaking about the mighty deeds of God( Acts 2:11) but  some would mock them and say the they were “Sweet on Wine”( Acts 2:13). 

Acts 19:6

And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking with tongues and prophesying.

unbelief-is-our-only-limit

Another example would be the shadow of peter. It’s written in the bible that by his shadow only people were healed and freed from evil spirits ( Acts 5:15 ) this did not happen because peter had power but because the holy spirit rested in peter. It was the Holy Spirit doing the miracles through peter. Churches, ministers, worshipers and believers need that in their lives. We need that awakening that was in the Old church. we need the prophesying, with speaking in tongues and deliverance of spirits. Did you know that when the Holy Spirit manifest that is a different way for you to speak with God without the enemy knowing. As for deliverance many of us still Christians need deliverance from something that we are holding unto. Because we might go to church and be all christian like inside of church and outside to friends or family members but what about when we are alone in our houses. Are you still watching porn, masturbating, cursing, drinking, fornicating , adultering, being abuse and much more. 

I speak through experience many of us got vices that you need to be delivered from if not at the least unexpected moment you will fall back into those addictions and vices. Worship is something fundamental; it’s a way to please and give the honor and glory to our God. But if you have not been baptized what can you give to the people. Are you gonna give them the doubts, blame, shame, hatred and much more that you are feeling in that moment instead of the peace, love, mercy and forgiveness that will be in you when the Holy Ghost manifest itself through you as a vessel.

I will be criticized for speaking the absolute truth but it’s time that people speak up. Don’t you think the Holy Spirit gets sad when he sees that churches, ministers, believers and worshipers don’t want him in their lives and churches. Do you think it pleases the Lord and the Holy Ghost that instead of the church wanting that connection with God through the Holy Spirit during worship are instead focused on the dramas, the skit dances and much more that is inside of churches nowadays.

I believe we have to use different ways to spread the gospel; however that should be done in the streets not inside of our church on top of our altars. The Altar is a Holy back in the days only the high priest was able to enter the Holiest of Holy but nowadays anyone can go on top. The Altar can’t be used as platform for that type of stuff; I believe the creators of this thought they were doing a good thing maybe they have for it to be used in the streets where unbelievers through one of those skit could be saved.  However church is a different place; it’s the place where we have come to give the honor and glory to our God and to worship him. To give our absolute attention to him only not who is doing the dance right or playing the character right. You take the attention from God and at the end you left as you came. 

That’s why we are seeing passive churches with passive youth and believers because they don’t have the Holy Spirit or they have suppressed him for things that take away his presence and gives in to our wants and desires. When God baptized Jesus with the Holy Spirit he gave it to him without limitations. And Jesus did many wonders and miracles as did the apostles but do you see that in churches nowadays. Our youth are spiritually dead; they can’t pray for more than five minutes if it’s possible less than that. Our churches are more involved in social media and this type of stuff then having that close connection with God. Do you think God wants a passive church or someone that doesn’t believe in the trinity?

Revelation 3:16

So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Are you ready for the coming of Christ? Is the church ready? Are you Hot or Cold? you need to decide if it’s the time to act or to continue being passive at church. We as a church in general need to be ready not preparing ourselves to be ready.

John 14:12-14

12 Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
