Their seems to be an epidemic in the church I have seen it for years but yesterday was brought close to home,
Those who call them self’s Christians who are afraid to stand up for the name of Jesus, those who think it better to not tell others the truth of Christ and what He has done for them, those who would rather be loved by the world then to see the world saved from hell,
 
Christ said if you confess me before others I will confess you before My Father.
 
I think that this lays in the area that my get them to the point that they will hear the that Christ spoke in Matthew 7:23 “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'
 
This epidemic has even affected pastors and their families, but then Christ also said that even the elect would be deceived.
 
If you have excepted Christ in to your heart than call Him Lord and don’t be afraid or ashamed to stand up and say ‘I am a follower of Christ Jesus He has saved my sole and is willing to do the same for you, go to Him and repent of your sins, ask to be forgiven and except the forgiveness then go and tell the world of Christ His love for them and His free gift of salvation.
 
If you are holding back the truth from a non-believer or a believer who is walking in sin, you are holding back your love for them, and Christ told us in Matthew to love to show His love to the world.
 
Mathew 22:39 “The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.'
 
Mark 12:31 “The second is this, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' There is no other commandment greater than these.”
 
Romans 13:9 For this, “YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, YOU SHALL NOT MURDER, YOU SHALL NOT STEAL, YOU SHALL NOT COVET,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”
 
Galatians 5:14 For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”
 
Jams 2:8 If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF,” you are doing well. If you really love Christ and have love for your neighbor you will want to share the love of Christ with them.
 
Don’t hold back, give them the opportunity to either except the Lord God or reject Him let them make that choice don’t make it for them.

If mans will is set to do wrong it doesn’t matter how much or how many people pray to the Father to help them they will not change for God will not break a persons will He will only allow things to happen so that they hopefully will see the truth and change their ways.
 
So when prayer does not change a person’s ways and bad things happen do not blame God for He has always had the best for each of us, but it is up to us to except it or not, it is our choice to sin, not God’s that we would sin.
 
think about it

A gift is something given without a return expected it is paid for by the giver and freely received by the receiving party.

God gives us gifts, His greatest gift to us is Christ Jesus, this gift was paid for with the blood of Christ and is freely available to anyone who asks to receive it.

Like any other gift when it is given you do not have to pay for it, you do not deserve it and you cannot earn it, you can never out pay God so why think you can or even have to try, all you have to do is say Lord Jesus here am I, I do believe you are the Christ the son of God, please forgive me of my sins, except the gift and walk with Him in that gift of salvation as your friend and savior, your one and only access to the Living God, the I AM

Matthew 6:24
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.
 
Matthew 6:25-34
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not worth much more than they?
And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?
And why are you worried about clothing?
Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.
But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith!
 
Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
 
So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own”.

Psalms 32

1 A Psalm of David, A Psalm to contemplate How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered!

2 How blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not place iniquity upon, And in whose spirit there is no deceit: dishonesty, treachery, deceitfulness, trickery, pretense, cheating, falseness, guile or fraud

 

3 when I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. Selah (Salah to stop and consider what has been said).

5 I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not hide from You; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD”; And You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah. (Salah to stop and consider what has been said).

6 Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You Lord in a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.

7 You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. (Salah to stop and consider what has been said).

 

8 the Lord says I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.

9 Do not be as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding, whose trappings include the bit and bridle to hold them in check, Otherwise they will not come near to you.

10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but he who trusts in the LORD, lovingkindness shall surround him.

11 Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; and shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

 

 

The Lord does not put sickness upon us but we in our sin bring stress in to our lives and stress brings about sickness, by confessing our sins to the Lord and asking to be forgiven of our sins, the impact of stress will be lifted from us and health will return; Stress creates worry, stress and worry weakens the immune system and make us venerable to sickness. You can be so worried that someone will find out your sin that your mind becomes so consumed with hiding the sin that your whole personality will change, you can become so protective of yourself that you will push others away and become isolated in your sins. Instead go to the Lord and confess your sins to Him and ask to be forgiven, except the fogginess given to you and walk upright in the Lord. Sin kills, forgiveness brings life. Think about it.

the Lord knows you sin He sees you, but unless you go to Him and confess your sins to Him and ask to be forgiven He can not forgive you, confessing your sins to man will not get you forgiven, for man cannot forgive sin only God can do that.




Hodgepenny

As time went on He just sat, knoqing, knowing what no one else seemed to know.

But staring in to the red leave's He knew spring was on it's way, and that His life would go on as He reflected on the Love He had felt.

And that no mater how the lonely streets desended upon Him He would continue to shin, as He sat their He could be heard sining softly to Himself,   This little light of mine.

Hodgepenny's philosphy has always been take care of home first, only give to those who are truly in need, never, No never take anything that you have not earned. always spend as much time with the Father as you can, for His love will guide and keep you through all things, and this will make your life better than great.
