Going to church for the wrong reasons

God bless you dear brethren! 

Tonight as I meditate in God's word, so many things come to mind when it comes to fellowship/attending to a church building! There's a lot of heartache among the people today at a church building and obviously even more among those who don't even go anymore.

I titled this "going to church for the wrong reasons" and I know the first thing that comes to mind is relationships right? Especially nowadays it seems that a lot of people (mostly teens/young adults) 
Are going to a church building to find a partner, nothing wrong with wanting to get married to a Godly person, yet that's not always the case! There are lots of wolves in sheep clothing in the church and you have to ask The Lord to keep your heart, guard it and preserve it til the end! And until He confirms you when the right time and the right person is! 
Now, relationships is not all there is when we're talking about going to a church building for wrong reasons! There are lots of people who go just to hang out with friends, to get good food (wow), to check out if there are sports/fun things to get involved in, etc etc! Now don't get me wrong on this, I absolutely agree with having different groups and activities which involve the fellowship and have that communion with the Father in unity! Absolutely! Yet, not everyone's in the same boat, some people are not even saved and are already being "leaders" and the main people for certain ministries! That is wrong!!! How can you share unity with someone who isn't walking in the same light as you? It's biblical! Check this out: 2 Corinthians 6:14 (and no, this is not talking about marriages only!) Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

Brethren be really careful! Others are trying to get something out of the church! Trying to get some personal benefits, prestige, etc! God tests and weighs every heart, if something isn't right the Holy Spirit will convict you and deliver you from the evil one! Going to church should be different! That maybe a few hours early or even a whole day early you're there already encouraged and looking forward to listening to the Living Word!! Looking forward to learning it & then practicing it, go to church to worship The Lord in praise and adoration! Go & cry your eyes out in His presence, let Him fill you up!!! My question is, do you know what you're going to church for? Or WHY are you going in the first place? Don't tell me oh I got invited, JESUS LOVES YOU AND HE USED THAT PERSON TO BRING YOU BACK HOME! But now, what's next? It's your decision my friend, come on don't hesitate! The coming of The Lord is at hand! In the meantime ask God for the forgiveness of your sins, TURN AWAY FROM THEM FOR REALS! Serve Him wholeheartedly outside the 4 walls, come hungry and thirsty for righteousness, come to the church building whungry and thirsty for the Word! This isn't some dead boring ritual or religion! That in fact sounds kind of creepy! Come on delight yourself in The Lord like a kid! 
Have a date with Jesus all the time! You don't need to go out but if you have to then do it! But don't forget to have that quiet time with Him and just be!!! A listener and a doer, not just a listener of the Word! That intimacy with the Holy Spirit can't be purchased! You have to take time and find Him! God bless guys :) 

Jesus is Lord!

Testimony + purpose! Don't forget where God took you from!

Good morning my brethren! Let us start with a testimony on this beautiful day that The Lord has made, some of you might have already read it or heard about it, yet what a great reminder! Since all of us at some point where there just like Paul, blind and against the very Way of life!

Acts 9:1-19 Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way,whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.  He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”  “Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied.  “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone.  Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus.  For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything. In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!”“Yes, Lord,” he answered. The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsusnamed Saul, for he is praying.  In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.” “Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your holy people in Jerusalem. And he has come here with authority from the chief priests to arrest all who call on your name.”  But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentilesand their kings and to the people of Israel.  I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.” Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands onSaul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”  Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, and after taking some food, he regained his strength.

You might think that you weren't as bad as Paul when you came to Christ, therefore you can't really "relate" to his conversion, let me tell you right now I'm the first one to identify myself with Paul, as a matter of fact I think this is one of those testimonies that relates to my old life and how God worked things out very similar in my life as He did in Paul's! 

Here's the thing, you didn't have to be a murderer or a persecutor of Christians to be separated from God! At some degree we were murderers or persecutors in the spiritual realm, by rejecting and not wanting anything to do with the things of God! See we are not just talking about the things he did or he did not, because all of is have a past, some of you don't wanna let go and still wanna live in it and in the sinful nature you were first found in!  We are talking about the whole act of Mercy from God towards this man who according to judgmental/gossipers kind of people he didn't really have a purpose for this life nor a chance to go to a church for a little bit! This is like the bible type of Hitler you guys, Saul was serious about wiping out Christians ASAP! Yet God didn't care about Saul's intentions or desires, matter of fact He even fanged his name from Saul to Paul! Just to identify his new role and purpose! Paul means small/humble! And that is huge because this man used to be very educated/prideful, according to society and social positions he was ahead of everyone else! Yet God says in His Word that whoever wants to be first then he just be a servant of all! (Mark 10:44) 

Let us not forget where God took us from! Don't forget your roots in the spiritual realm! You were lost without a shepherd, empty and dead in sin, anxious, desperate, needy,  smelly (cause sin is poisonous and makes you ugly) 

Just don't forget it and whatever spiritual level you're in right now, don't neglect what's really important: READING THE WORD, PRAYING, TALKING TO YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER & FELLOWSHIP WITH YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST!  

Have a blessed night!

You're new! Let go of the past!

So many of us need to stop for a moment and think! God really wants us to let go of the past, all those wounds, scars, situations, heartache, and things that block us from His presence and fulfillment of His perfect will in us! #Letgo and store this scripture in your heart: 2 Corinthians 5:17 "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"

Many diseases in people's lives because of sin

Bible Study: Many diseases in people's lives because of sin

Many of the illnesses and diseases occur because of sin in people's lives and heart, also they come through generational curses! (Curses/sin/diseases that have gone through one generation to the other)  
We see so many people going to the hospitals for weeks in a row trying to find comfort and a way out, putting their trust on what men can do only! 

Sin is a disease that eats you up little by little until it gets to the bones, it starts in the spiritual world first, you stop praying like you used to, you're  not seeking God like before, you stop going to church and you don't have that passion like you used to when you first came to Christ! And then it shifts to the physical world, you start compromising in worldly things, going to places you shouldn't, watching things you should not be watching & that aren't pleasing before God and that spiritual death gradually leads you to a physical death! Where there's no way back if you left this earth without Jesus! Because, if you didn't repent while you were alive, you have lost it all! 
It's not to scare you, but instead it is a call for you to make a wise decision, the best decision of your life: JESUS CHRIST! The only one who came down from heaven to pay the debt of your sins and make you a new person from the inside out! He came down to restore what has been lost! 

He doesn't want you to leave earth without giving your heart to Jesus first! He wants you to live a life in honor and holiness for Him through His Holy Spirit! 
Why don't you receive Him today and start this 2014 the way He desires? Christ wants to fulfill His purpose in you this year, it's been enough living for years in sin, dead in agony, anxiety, depression and frustrations for that long!  There's hope in Christ, new life, forgiveness, new beginnings, salvation and an eternal life with God It's your choice! I'm simply doing what the Bible tells me: estoy haciendo lo que la Biblia me dice: "See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God that I am commanding you today; and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn from the way that I am commanding you today, to follow other gods that you have not known." Deuteronomy 11:26-28 

Tu escoges hoy la bendición o la maldición mi amad@ herman@! 
Si tu eres sabio y escoges la bendición en este día, de reconocer que eres pecador y que necesitas de un Salvador que te perdone y limpie de tus pecados por favor repite conmigo esta oración, Hazla de todo tu corazón como delante de Dios y no para los hombres! 

Señor Jesús, te doy gracias por este día que me has regalado para salvar mi alma a tiempo. Reconozco que soy un pecador y que he pecado contra ti. Te pido perdón por mis pecados y te acepto en mi corazón como mi Único y Suficiente Salvador de mi vida. Escribe mi nombre en el libro de la vida y no lo borres nunca, ayúdame a caminar contigo todos los días que me quedan en esta tierra hasta el día de tu venida, ayúdame Señor a alejarme de mi pasada manera de vivir. En el nombre de Jesús, amén. 

Si hiciste esta oración de todo tu corazón dice la palabra de Dios que todos tus pecados han sido echados al fondo del mar! (Miqueas 7:19) y también, que todas las cosas viejas pasaron y he aquí todas son echas nuevas por Cristo Jesús! (2 Corintios 15:17)

I'd like to keep in touch with you to pray, get to know you, your testimony and help you out in the path with Christ!  
First things first so you need to get a Bible ASAP, start reading it daily, this is the map which will guide you and help you see this world through His eyes, and don't worry if you don't get it at first, God Himself will give you understanding and wisdom! 
Praying is simply talking to God, He doesn't need formal words, He just wants to hear your heart! Therefore with humbleness of heart come to Him! He wants to speak to you through prayer. 
Then find a church where you can fellowship, not any church though! The only requirement is that they need to preach that Jesus is the way, truth and life! That He is coming soon for His church and also they need to preach the Bible in its entirety, without skipping anything!   
Last but not least, tell others about what just happened! Tell them that Christ forgave you of your sins and now you're living for Him!

Please send me an email to keysi31@hotmail.com that way I pray for you! Blessings!

Thank You Lord!!!

Nothing happens by accident!

Regretting about things is one of the worst feelings one can experience, it's the enemy's favorite song!  
I am not excusing sins or mistakes we make, but I do thank God for teaching us from our mistakes, we don't have to fall into the same pit over and over, we don't have to go through things our parents or ancestors went through!  Instead, Jesus teaches us a better way in order for us to see the big picture, and understand that nothing is a coincidence! But it is through the very will of God that we are where we are! 
Now don't misunderstand that concept, because we do lead ourselves into trouble from time to time and to miserable things that bring consequences in the long run, it's part of our humanity, but don't use that as an excuse to live miserably and in poverty both spiritual and physical! 

Maybe you made choices that weren't the wisest, maybe the people you chose as friends became your enemies or betrayed you, maybe your parents didn't plan you, but regardless of the pain and difficult circumstances God is reaching out His hand to tell you I LOVE YOU! I AM DIRECTING YOU EXACTLY WHERE I WANT YOU AT! Dont confuse your own plans and goals with God's perfect will! Seek HIM and you will find Him!

Bible Study: Persevere!! 

Definition of perseverance----> Staying up with a task without giving up 

Prayer strengthens us and gives us the boldness to not give up quickly, in fact, it brings us closer to the Savior and the promise in Jeremiah 33:3 fulfills! 
"...and I will show you great and mighty things which you do not know." 

When you resolve in your heart to pray, maybe you're planning it ahead a whole day early and setting everything up in your heart to have that beautiful encounter/ date with Jesus but guess what? On the other hand the enemy is behind the scene trying to ruin everything and trying to stop you from even considering it! 

Persevere in prayer! The battle is daily, it's so easy to read anything else but the Bible! And sometimes such things might shine more appealing & entertaining but it's time to stand up and say NO to distractions! It's time to spend some devoted time with the Savior! How about now! Let's get off Facebook and other media & activate your spiritual weapons, one of them is prayer! Which in fact the enemy can't stand!
We must use this weapons in order to win this fight and one day repeat the same words Paul once said: "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith..." 2 Timothy 4:6 

Have a great & blessed day in our Lord Jesus!
