Watch And Pray Redeeming The Time For The Days Are Evil !
"Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.” Colossians 4:5
What's Important in Your Life?
What's important in your life? Is it family, health, prestige, wealth, or your relationship with God? What will make you happy? Everyone has only one life to live, and you decide what's important to you.
Is making money and satisfying physical desire your main objective? What is lasting? What will money buy that will make your life better? Will buying things or appeasing and pleasing yourself make you happy? At the end of your life will you feel fulfilled, in knowing that you have left something of spiritual value to those whose lives you encountered? Was your life significant enough to make a difference in your own life, and in the lives of others?
Are building the right relationships more important to you? Are the relationships you have making you stronger, or breaking you down, and robbing you from being your best?
Building relationships with good people who have a sound mind will give you strength and support that will keep you moving onward and upward to the top of your personal victory mountain. When you find the best people for your life, and keep them close, it comes from not only your internal evaluation, but more specifically, from your spiritual evaluation of how important this relationship is to your life.
Good relationships are meant to be supportive and strengthening to those whose life you affect, or from the person who influences your life. All good relationships are founded on honesty and trust if they are to be lasting.
People who are affected by others, are influenced to change in some way. They might change their mind, their attitude, their hairdo, or how they lay out a particular plan of endeavor or how they proceed on that plan. That means that a person places enough confidence in what another person says or does that it will cause them to alter, or modify their previous way of thinking or how they do something.
When you decide to whom you will give your trust, you give great importance to someone else's mode of thinking, it's a decision that can help you or hinder you in all you do. That important decision of whom to place your trust can make you feel more confident through their moral support if they are trustworthy. However, if you trust the untrustworthy that unrewarded confidence can break you down to make you feel worthless and cause you to lose hope.
Every problem comes from trusting the untrustworthy. If you trust someone you believe they are honest and dependable. If you distrust them you believe they are dishonest and undependable. The major problems in your life are trusting the untrustworthy!
Wrong trusts can be defeating and break you down, eventually destroying you. When you allow the enemy of your soul to use people against you and you take it without pushing that evil away, you lose your own sense of physical, mental, and spiritual independence. Allowing others who are untrustworthy to persuade your way of thinking makes you lose your self-confidence, and relinquish personal control of your own welfare.
The evil persuasion of others not only robs you of a better way of life, but you are brought under subjection to those who allow sin and Satan to steal their life away. That evil delusion of others takes the significance of good outcomes away from you while you are taken in bondage to their evil influence.
When the evil ways of an untrustworthy person control you, you're robbed of self-confidence. That evil influence destroys your ability to be your best, when you accept that error in judgment it eventually becomes a redirecting of your life. You are denied the good results you could have achieved, had you added to your value rather than had it taken away. All because you gave too much time and confidence to an unworthy person's claim to credibility.
When you allow distractions from people whose personalities are poison to your life and that influences you away from the best direction for your life, you are being led down the road to self-destruction.
A person with a lack of confidence in oneself will give away their energy and efforts to a brash person and be unequally attached to their negative actions. They will fall victim to their damaging way of life, it will either lead to their complete destruction or move them to live in a mediocre way of unimportance.
That union with the untrustworthy depletes your spiritual value, by overruling your God given talents, skills, and abilities, it warps your point of view for your future, and gradually destroys your hopes and dreams.
The way the untrustworthy person directs you will drown you in opinions that will lead you away from true love, or your own visions, and put up road blocks to your personal happiness. All because their mindsets and the way they are living is disturbed and will only produce destruction, and unhappiness.
Do you want to link your thinking and your life to poisonous people whose ideas feed venom into your life? There are people who self-destruct and want to light a fire under you, so you will go up in flames with them.
You must know what is important for your life, and pursue it diligently, to be victorious over everything that's thrown at you in life. Just because someone struts around telling you how wonderful they are doesn't make it true.
People who are not in tune with the truth exaggerate, wrest the scriptures, and profess more than they possess. It’s up to you to go to the source of truth, read the Holy Bible for yourself, and pray to Jesus Christ and make your own relationship with your Lord and Savior. Do not totally depend on hear-say religion. That’s when all you know about Jesus Christ and the Bible has been told to you by others.
Resist the enemy and he will flee from you; the enemy's indoctrination can be hidden within anyone and be unknown to you. What is important to you as a Christian is to place Jesus Christ first, so your life will move into the place that Jesus has prepared for those who believe in Him.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
When evil enters a person's mind behind it all is the devil himself who is the god of lies, deception, destruction, and death. He places his evil in the hearts and minds of those who follow him, either knowingly or unknowingly.
People don't always recognize when others are used by the enemy of their soul. Destructive people are present in their life, to lead them away from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, into a place of darkness. We recognize the danger of destructive personalities more in other people’s lives than our own.
When you place serving the Lord as the top priority for your life, you will find personal peace, rest, and happiness beyond what you can even imagine. When you follow Jesus Christ's agenda for your life you will find that special place of spiritual fulfillment in peace, rest, and hope, that brings soul-satisfaction.
Do you constantly allow people, circumstances, and events to distract you from accomplishing the important things in life? People can let you down, and circumstances while seeming dire now will pass away with time, and an event can change your future either for the good or bad.
You should decide what's important to you! Every day is a step toward the end of your journey here on earth. What will you accomplish? What do you want to accomplish? Is it worth taking the time to meditate on what is important to you? Is it worth setting your vision on higher goals to achieve your spiritual maturity? Do you want to become all that Jesus Christ has in store for you through knowing the truth?
It's important for you to add spiritual value to your life, to be the best person you can be according to the truth of the gospel. It's important for you to give your greatest value in your God-given spiritual gifts and ministry to those whose life you affect!
Praying and reading the Holy Bible is of the utmost importance for your spiritual growth and for the growth of the kingdom of God! You were especially chosen by God, to do the will of God, to spread the gospel according to His plans and purpose for your life.
When you are not in the center of God's will, and being moved by the Holy Spirit of God, you will feel frustrated, defeated, and unfulfilled. You will never find peace of mind and soul-satisfaction until you are moved onto Jesus Christ's plan for your life, fulfilled in His truth and grace.
When you are moving according to the world system's warped bondage of sin, you are being denied God's best. You can't mix truth with error to make it truth and you can't accept sins which are the results of evil influence into your life experience and call it good!
You should understand that impostors of the faith, scam artists, hypocrites, and the pretenders of Christianity, do not reflect the goodness or truth of Jesus Christ. It happens because they don't know Jesus in his fullness through faith and fellowship.
They don't know enough to keep themselves stabilized in the foundational truth in faith. They miss out on a greater blessing through the abiding truth of Jesus Christ. All because the deeper truth is either not being made available to them, or they were given misguided teaching, and misleading versions of the Holy Bible.
An apostate Christian loses out on achieving the best God has for them, because in their rebellion to God they shunned the truth when it was made available to them. They chose to accept false interpretations of God's word, because it satisfied the appeasing of the flesh, by approving of sin and allowing spiritual neglect.
Spiritual neglect keeps people in an immature baby state, they are kept there through being taught to rely on other people in the church to supply them their spiritual guidance. They are not told that the only way for them to build a relationship with Jesus Christ is through their own desire to know Him better.
A spiritually neglected believer can only grow in the truth and grace of Jesus Christ when they personally seek to know more about Jesus Christ and his righteousness. They must be taught to pray and read the word of God for themselves, because someone else can't get them into the right relationship with Jesus Christ, nor can they get them to heaven.
“Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11
“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” Hebrews 9:28
“Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.” James 5:8
“And now, little children, abide in him; that when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.” I John 2:28
“Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” Matthew 24:44
“For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.” Matthew 16:27
Do you want more fruit of the Spirit in your life before Jesus Christ returns?
Will you be able to know the difference between the appearance
of the Anti-Christ and the second coming of Jesus Christ?
