I do NOT consider myself a CHRISTian by the current Worldly standards. I consider myself a servant and follower of JESUS CHRIST. I am not a Baptist, Pentecostal or any other religious label. I believe that religion will send you to hell. Your and my only hope is to believe in and know JESUS personally. I believe the BIBLE is VERY clear and to the point. The translation you may be reading may be confusing and misleading but GOD knew exactly what HE was doing. No where in the BIBLE will you find GOD or any prophet telling you that you must read and follow a certain translation of the BIBLE. Yet a lot of the religious churches and people will do just that. This is not of GOD, this is religion. And they do it all in the name of JESUS. Satan loves getting the church to do his work all in JESUS name. JESUS said that we would be doing the same things HE did and even greater things than that. I do not see anything anywhere like that in todays church. To me I find that as a clear sign that todays church may not be following JESUS. From my own personal observations I think the church is following religion and not CHRIST. Many parables that JESUS spoke showed how the people who were supposed to be following HIM actually were not. Do not blindly believe and follow someone just because they are a priest, bishop or reverend or any other name they want to tack on or make up. My skin just crawls when I hear churches asking you to send them money usually for JESUS junk. JESUS junk is that cheap stuff they will send you if you will send them so much money. Try going to that same speaker who is begging for money and ask them to help you in your finances. Do you know what they will tell you? Usually it is that you need to start walking in faith. That is so true but shouldnt they be listening to their own preaching? Can anyone tell me where JESUS begged his followers for money? HE had them go to work (fish) and he blessed that. HE told them to cast their line in the water and the first fish they caught to look in its mouth. The BIBLE is very clear and yet the world has gone nuts. False prophets, false preachers and false teachers are all over the place today. How many times have you heard someone say What GOD means in this verse is? I get angry when I hear words like this. Is not GOD supposed to be GOD? Does not the LORD know all and see all? Then how in the world can you possibly believe that GOD did not know what HE was doing when he wrote the BIBLE? You may have to read a scripture in several translations to get a much more clear understanding of what is being said. Ask GOD for wisdom on anything and HE promises to give you wisdom. It may not come instantly or even to you knowing that you got it. I can not stand a liar. Even before I started following CHRIST I could not deal with lies. I can not trust a liar. How can you defend a liar? You can not. The WORD of GOD says that lies are the native language of satan. Around 10 years ago I had two strokes. It affected me physically and mentally. A lot of my physical loss has been slowly recovered. I can walk and drink with a straw now. I still have some problems. My mental condition has gotten worse. I forget things so rapidly. Some days are so much worse than others. I have trouble remembering if I have taken my insulin at times. I have constructed several systems to help me to remember things. My computer is a HUGE help. On my really bad days I try to remember to write down when I take my medication. Needless to say I often forget. Shortly after the strokes I got into my truck that I so dearly loved and I did not know how to drive. That really scared me. I do not drive now. I do not even have a drivers license anymore. Once a month I take a cab to the grocery store and stock up. The rest of the time I get on my bicycle and go to the store. I am sure it looks funny, a fat old guy on a bike but I do what I got to do. I was married when I had the strokes but the depression and other things that I went through afterwards drove my wife into the arms of another man. At least that is what she says. Personally I find the whole situation as a blessing from GOD. I have been so blessed since she got out of my life. This other man really did me a favor. I have about four huge things I am asking GOD for. FIRST: I want a very personal relationship with GOD HIMSELF. I mean I want to hear HIS voice daily. I want to talk to HIM and hear HIM talk to me. I want to be GODs favorite tool. I want to be used by GOD. SECOND: I want the wife of my prayers, desires and dreams. I have been asking GOD for this for about three years now. GOD said that HE would give us the desires of our hearts. I know she is on her way and coming. I have the faith of GOD on this one. I do not flirt, date or have any relationships other than a friendship with women. By the way women really hate that. I have had women offer themselves to me. They do not like being turned down either. I just want SO much more than great sex. I want to become one as the WORD of GOD puts it. I want the most that a person can have in a marriage. That can only come from GOD, so why should I waste time and basically cheat on my wife to be? I am asking GOD to speak to both of us, telling each of us who our mate is. I have a huge prayer list on my wife. You have not because you ask not right? That will NOT be my excuse. I figure she probably has a list as well. In the past years I truly believe that GOD has shown me things to put on that list. Things like I used to have a neighbor who created so much drama. I do not like drama. Things like a woman who is not afraid to change the oil in her own car. Most of all I want a faithful GODly woman who really wants me. THRID: I want sole custody of my daughters about a month after I marry. And I want that to be their mothers idea. FOURTH: I want the gift of healing. I want to be able to walk into hospitals, pray and they walk out. JESUS did this and HE said that we would do even greater things than these. I know I think big, I pray big too. You watch these things will happen. Then are you going to tell me that I am off my rocker?
