We ‘Done’ Let ‘Them’ Sinners In The Church

#WeDoneLetThemSinnersInTheChurch It does not matter what you do or where you go, you will encounter fakers, instigators, liars, backstabbers, hell raisers and two-facers. The church is THE place that gives an open invitation and says “Come. Come as you are.” No master level training is required. No perfection is expected. No resume of accomplishments needed. No vouchers that you’re a good person requested. Nope. Just come. You, you, and you.

Then you get there and bump into people just like you – real and regular, world-worn, tired & torn, sin-sick, messed-up-from-the-neck-up, toe-up-from-the-flo’-up, unclean, BUT believing people. You can get shocked. Still, do not miss seeing Jesus because you see His people who are in process. Some of Jesus’ people will be jacked-up but still saying Jesus stuff, with their lives running amuck. What’s going on 🤔😲🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏾‍♂️?!

What’s going on is a continual washing, a reworking of the mind, retraining of the body, growing up the new babe in Christ while the old man is shot down and shut out; deliverance from evil spirits and ungodly works, breaking of strongholds and generational curses … working things out of someone that took decades to get worked in. For some it happens quickly (hallelujah) and others not so much. We are not puppets for God. He gave us a free will to choose – love Him or leave Him. That’s on you and me.

And, if you think Jim Bob or Silly Suzy is a horrible church goer, just imagine how much rougher they were without church. I’d rather see them shouting at the altar than staying altered by the world. Churches are FILLED with imperfect people who God knows how to love perfectly. Jesus is the Healer, Cleaner, and Miracle Worker.

Are there hypocrites, users, and abusers? Yep. Are there ones who should be further along? Yep. Are there shiesty ones? Yep. Are there gifted ones lifted up but know little about God? Yep. I’ve encountered some rough ones on this journey. Glad I saw Jesus more than I saw them🙌🏾. Get away from them. Wolves do come in sheep’s clothing. Do NOT condone them.

Yes, the Bible believing churches have the answer. The Word is what works. No Word, nothing works. All churches are not the same😲🤭. Every profession has access to the same resources but not every professional uses them. If a pro stops training, refuses continuing education studies – it does not make the profession bad, but it will eventually render them outdated or behind. They can still practice but will do so poorly.

Sin and sinners have always been in the church. Who told you different?

People are people, in and out of the church. You will encounter them in life. Whether you make it beyond the ones who rub you wrong depends on what’s in you! What’s working in you is where the difference comes, whether you become better or bitter, stuck in time or getting a breakthrough just in time.

The devil’s doctrine is that there is no God, you are your own god. There is no Jesus and your sins are yours to reap. And, most importantly, satan will have you believe there is no him and there is no hell. He blinds the minds of those who choose not to believe. 2Cor 4:3-4, 10:3-5, John 8:44

I am glad to report that there are Christians who are mature, who live clean, who love deeper, who are humble, who do forgive, who aren’t trying to model the world or be molded by the popular opinion. There are praying, Bible-believing Christians who know Him. Follow them as they follow Christ. If they go left, you stay right, eyes on Him!

Wherever you go, whatever you are seeking for, you will find. That’s good or bad, for or against. Never back down from what is true. Jesus alone still saves. If you’re woke but can’t see, go back to sleep. #WokeAndAwakened #WhosoeverWillComeLetHimCome

Many Believe. Any Can Believe.

Many believe in God, a god, or gods. Do you believe in God’s ONLY begotten son Jesus, that He died for your sin and was raised three days later with all power? It is all true!

Jesus alone is Savior and Lord, King of Kings. He is Christ. He loves the sinner to salvation and sanctification.

He invites ALL to call on Him? He is THE only way to eternal life. He delivers. There is nobody like Him.

HE loves YOU so much. Many believe many things when it comes to religion. Thank God, any can believe and receive true salvation.

Powerful Preaching

“Powerful preaching was the outflow of Pentecost! (Acts 2)

– God deliver us from weak, dry, sermons that are void of the Scriptures!

– God deliver us from talks that have nothing to do with the text!

– God deliver us from hooping without proper hermeneutics!

– God deliver us from excitement without sound exegesis!

Mr. Preacher/Ms. Preacher: ‘We would see Jesus.’ I am going through hell; I am about to lose my marriage, my mind, and my money. I got my own Scandal, and I am about to be on the next episode of Snapped, I am Young and Restless, it is the Edge of Night, and I need the Guiding Light.

WE NEED A WORD FROM GOD!!”

Feeling Favored?!

Favor is not connected to how you FEEL about going to worship. Favor is connected to being FAITHFUL about going to worship. You have to get IN there to be blessed OUT of there! #IsThatBible? “The Lord that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion,” Psalms‬ ‭134:3‬, 128:5.

Testify: in a previous Bible class, we continued our commitment to seek God and speak God things. In the process of seeking (prayer), I shared that there was favor for us that would manifest in REAL tangible ways and that #Favor will get you what money can’t buy you and FAVOR will open avenues to grant you goodness and FAVOR will cause men to give into your bosom. When you find FAVOR with God, you obtain FAVOR with men (Prov. 3:4). Speaking for myself, A year ago, He literally did for me and is still doing it!🙌🏾 #BibleClass✔️ #StayGreatlyGratefulChurch

Permission not to be Polite or Passive

No one person can fight #every societal, spiritual, or cultural problem that you come across, or you will be fruitlessly fighting every moment of your shortened life. Even Jesus chose His battles AND took time off. Wisdom is knowing when, what, with whom, and how much.

The hungry and the hurting will always be. No church, social group, outreach, or preacher can “cure” that. To attack ev-er-y ill that arises is not the will. All you can do is your part, period. Be okay with that. People cast blame on this group or that one, because it’s the easy way in which the enemy uses influence to divide communities.

I am not a polite or passive person, preacher, or pastor 👉🏽in regards to social ills. That is who I am. God designed me. I do not need approval or pats on the back to follow what is in me. God settled that. You should be the same.

In this one☝🏽 life you are given, in order to live it fully, YOU have to find your lane, run it, and be who #you are called to be. I support that. Do not let others put pressure on you – that you spoke on ‘this’ issue but not on ‘that.’ And, even if others refuse to see the #real you, you still #need to be that for which you are called to. Tell haters and instigators #byebye, see you later 👋🏽. John 15:16 #ChurchLady #CommunityLover #JustARandomRamble

Hurt. Hate it. But Heal.

You were about to throw in the towel and say, so what, whatever, I don’t care. This moment will pass, please don’t do those things that will take you deeper into despair. Hang on, call someone for prayer. Tell them how bad you’re hurting, and be honest about the pain. You DO have others who care.

Your future days matter to a lot of people. You #feel defeated but you are not done. The life in your body testifies to that. This ain’t easy but it will surely strengthen your walk. Hurt, hate it, but heal. Cry, but don’t hide in the closet, walk til you crossover.

#GreaterIsInYou, don’t count your best future out. Life will hit hard, but with help and hope, you can handle this. You can still be on the way! I just prayed about #YOU because God has you in His future plans.

Do You Have a Date?

I did not know Valentines Day is aka Single Awareness Day (S. A. D.). What the worlds 🤦🏽‍♀️. #ValentinesDay is what it is, a day of expressing romantic love, loving relationships, and love interests.

Do not let being alone make your mouth buy you a ticket to Lonelyville, All Year. Declare your heart’s desire, not your past disappointments. Do you discuss your reality? Yes. But confessing: “I’ll never find someone.” “Women don’t want a good man, anymore.” “I don’t need a man.” “I’m too busy for a relationship.” Noooo. God made you for someone.

There are really good men who are ready for relationships and phenomenal women who are ready, as well.

#WOMEN A super sweet woman can deny and deprive herself through being snared by her words. If you want love, want it 🤷🏽‍♀️. You can be ready and not be desperate. We all ‘need’ things but it does not make you ‘needy.’ 🗣It’s okay. Culture has told us – you’re strong alone, don’t sound weak, ‘you yo’ own boo.’ #CutItOut #ReadyForLoveAndInWaiting #GodDeliveredMeToo🙋🏽‍♀️

#MEN There is a woman who is successful, or on her way up, AND still sees you as Superman — not because of your stuff but because of your inner substance. The woman is #ordained to be your bridge to favor. A man with the right woman goes from overwhelmed to #overflow. However, if you are waiting and thinking you can jump in like Super Fly, after she turns her attention to another man, you’re going to lose. When a woman switches off, she’s out. It’s better to state your intentions instead of saying, “I was intending to.” And don’t be, “God knows.” Yep, He knows you lost out. #BeClear #BeHappy

Where is love on your list? Not what’s been on your lips, but on your heart. Whatever is a priority gets prioritized, period. Only one ☝🏽 life to choose how you will live, laugh, and love. It’s on you. ❤️💕

If people ask, do you have a date for Valentines, tell them, “Yes, February 14th” 😁. Bye, y’all. #DoYouHaveADate
