Dynamite= Powerfully Changed Life (Sunday Story Inspiration)

Ephesians 3:16
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;”

…I quickly changed into my after-school clothes so I could watch the men who were “dynamiting” the rock layer where an addition to our house would be built. They pre-drilled a layer of rock, loaded the holes with dynamite and then dragged a cable net over the site. Ignition caused an explosion that lifted the cable net off the ground.

Then the men dragged the net away and cleaned up the broken rock. Eventually the excavation beside our house was deep enough to pour a footer and concrete floor. The surrounding land was still the same, but the work area was completely different from how it use to be before.

In Similar:

In our verse above, Ephesians 3:16, the word “MIGHT” in the Greek is “DUNAMIS, it’s where we get our word “DYNAMITE.” The power of God and His Word is such that it has the same effects that dynamite had in the illustration above. It completely and powerfully changes us so that we are no longer the same person.

We have new desires, ambitions, motives, hopes and our goals line up more with God than that of the world’s following. Even people that knew you before will see that you are not the same person. 2 Corinthians states this: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

There is no ability in us to make change; not a permanent change. Oh we might can change a few things, but it won’t be consistent. When we try to change ourselves for the better we still end up doing the things we don’t want to do and then we get so depressed and stressed cause we fail trying to do things in our lives that only God can do; that’s how God designed us to be- total dependent on Him.

If you don’t like something in your life, ask God to come in and change it. He will. Thanks and praise to God that we can still in this late hour experience His “DYNAMITE” and be personally strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man. 🙂

How to Survive When You Can’t Pay Your Bills (LINK)

“……..I don’t mean the kind you’re talking about when your friends invite you to go shopping or for a night out and you say, “No, I can’t. I’m poor right now.”

I don’t mean the situation when you’d like to get a nicer car but decide you should just stick to the one you have because you don’t have a few thousand for a down payment.

I don’t mean the scene at the grocery store when you decide to get ground beef instead of steak.

I’m talking about when you have already done the weird mismatched meals from your pantry that are made up of cooked rice, stale crackers, and a can of peaches, and you’ve moved on to wondering what on earth you’re going to feed your kids.

Or when you get an eviction notice for non-payment of rent, a shut-off notice for your utilities, and a repo notice for your car and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about any of those notices because there IS NO MONEY.

If you’ve never been this level of broke, I’m very glad…………”

Do You Have Troubles ? (Sunday Inspiration)

2 Corinthians 1:4
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”

The Word ‘trouble‘ is found over a hundred times in the King James (Original and most accurate translation in English) Bible, and the word “troubled” 68 times. We should not find that surprising…Job in Job 14:1 states, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.” That may sound very negative but back then, it was a reality. Men of God in the Old Testament, such a Job, Joseph, King David and Daniel had many troubles. In the New Testament, Jesus was sometimes troubled and so were His disciples.

We see this especially in Paul’s voyage. Paul was on a stormy voyage that ended in a shipwreck. Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 2:9, “Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.”

Trouble can be in this world: afflictions (many times by our own hands), distresses (worries,stress,etc), disease (eating poorly,taking drugs,false beliefs),financial issues (poor decisions with money), loss of material items (stolen, weather related,etc), and mechanical breakdowns (man made cars,computers and machines). But how should we relate to these things? Obviously in a positive way: Jesus said, in John 14:1, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”

Again in John 14:27 Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples stated this in 1 Peter 5:7, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”

Instead of being troubled with the cares of this life lets sit at the feet of Jesus and focus on God rather than our trouble. Which ever one (troubles or God) we magnify the most in our life will dominate our future.

Know this, that God (if believed) will not only help us in trouble, but also help keep us out of trouble. 🙂

The Right Response (Sunday Inspiration)

Key verse today:Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” (James 4:10) (KJV)

During a revival meeting years ago, I looked over at a man who had been struggling with some serious failings in life. He obviously was experiencing strong conviction, becuase tears were rolling down his face. But when the invitation from the minister was given to come forward and repent and ask the Lord into the heart, he got up from his seat and walked out the back door.

While conviction and remorse are essential to genuine repentance, the right response to these emotions is also a big need. Quenching the Spirit of God as He speaks to us will harden our hearts towards God. The admonition to “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” (Galatians 5:16) this includes listening to God’s Spirit, even when the God tells us things we really don’t want to hear.

In times of great crisis, the Jews pleaded with Jeremiah (prophet) to pray, “That the LORD thy God may shew us the way wherein we may walk, and the thing that we may do.” (Jeremiah 42:3) But God’s answer was not what the Jews wanted to hear, and in their response to His prophet was “…Thou speakest falsely:…” (Jeremiah 43:2).

After Jesus was condemned to death by the Jews (John 19:15), Judas “repented himself“……….”Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood….” (Matthew 27:3-4). Yet Judas’ conviction and remorse resulted in his self destruction; Judas chose poorly.

God has given each person a conscience, and when fortified with knowledge of God’s Word (KJV only), the conscience not only convicts us of wrong but guides us in dealing with any wrongs. Let’s ensure that we never ignore that small still voice, either by disregarding it or by choosing an alternative (our own ways) solution that seems better or easier to the flesh (mind, opinions). 🙂

A Dreadful Superstition Grips America (LINK)

This link goes to a website that is certainly “controversial,” however, this article ‘hits the nail on the head.’ I recommend this article to everyone; it was certainly written with love and with other people in mind. Certainly all faiths and general public from all walks of life will benefit from this if we will apply it to our lives with serious endeavor. Ponder on it. It’s the change people may be looking for. 

“……………Ministers of religion, lawyers, architects, men renowned as brilliant scientists, physicians (particularly, physicians), University professors, middle class people, working class people, people of all nationalities, are its victims………What is this superstition? …………………Eat the truly good food, breathe good air, drink pure water, exercise, maintain optimistic and pleasant thoughts, and therefore enjoy fantastic health. Give our cells the proper nutrition and our immune systems will become as God gave us in the first place. Our immune system will then rebuild our body and we will enjoy the freedom of no illnesses…………..”

Hate Speech? Destroyer of FREE Speech, say it’s not so! (VIDEO)

Alex Jones Makes NYT Headlines!

I sent Brother Nathanael (long time friend) a message about Alex Jones, maybe you’ve heard of him. I don’t listen to him much anymore (radio/internet) for reasons too lengthy to get into; he does have some good sources and the info and “speech” he poured out was nearly spot on in many topics. Alex Jones has been banned from almost all social media outlets (yeah he must have finally struck a never or peed the wrong people off)…Nathanael posted this video yesterday going into a little more detail, more than I expected. Nate goes off in both right and left directions. A good thing eh?

Why now do they nail Alex to the wall??? Did he agree to be the poster boy example of what “not” to say given the new tech that keeps emerging to stave off free speech??? Time will tell. Alex has been allowed to post just about anything without reprisal…but times are changing; will they change for the common people as well? As a rule, we should all be able to speak our mind, to say what we want, and let others judge. Discern right from wrong. We need thicker skin if we are going to continue to walk this earth. Man up! Don’t let other people’s words (in the hate sense) get you down. This method has been working now for thousands of years. Just a note about the content in the middle of this vid; it’s creepy, and when I saw it it reminded me of the movie EQUALIBRIUM with it’s no emotion policy in the movie…judge for yourself
