|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|The Wiles of the Devil|
|Ephesians 6:10-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Satan is a created being and is no different than the angels in heaven. Satan has many tactics that he uses on the children of God on a daily basis. The thief has come to steal, kill and destroy. The thief is the devil and the wicked spirits that serve him. Their are enough to spread across the world. The devil does not have free rein of a christian because we are protected by the shield of God. John 10:10, 2 Cor 2:11, Eph 6:16, 1 Peter 5:8 We truly have an enemy and we can not stand in the flesh to fight him. It takes something greater than the flesh to fight him because he is in the sprint therefore must be fought in the spirit. He is not omnipresent but has many demons that do his handy-work. This world currently is the devils domain until Jesus comes back. The very thing that we live in, the flesh, wants to live in the world because of it’s lust. Nothing has changed since Adam and Eve because he is still deceiving and lying to people everyday. What a terrifying thing to be able to see with our eyes the spiritual warfare that goes on all around us. If we are saved then we are protected by Gods great hand and satan can not get to us unless God allows it. When Jesus died, He died for ALL but many will not submit to Him. If you’re playing with the devil he will take you further than you ever thought you would go quicker than you ever thought. When you light a match and place that flame under your hand, you will pull your hand back because there is a nerve that warns you of danger. Just as that nerve warns you, God also warns you of the dangers of the devil. Satan wants to destroy your testimony if you’re saved. Satan will use anything he can to tear you down. He will use religion itself to bring you down. If you are saved then you’re going to heaven but that doesn’t mean that if you play with the devil that he will keep people around you lost and going into hell. We hear it everyday, pastors having affairs because satan laid a woman in their lives. We as humans are ignorant to satan’s lies and deceptions.|

|What Are You Clinging To?|
|Mark 8:32-37 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|How many times have you told God no? Are you saved? If you're lost then you can't understand Gods Word. The work of the devil is to take the truth of God and make it a lie. Satan has not changed since the beginning, he still wants to defeat God. When one stands against the word of God then they are doing what the devil wants to do. Their isn't anything worse in this world other than being lost, not believing in Jesus Christ. Those horrible actions in the world are all sins but all can be forgiven. If one dies lost without forgiveness then they will open their eye being in hell. Do you really want to be committed to God? Why do we all want things our way so bad that we reject Gods way? Gods way is of faith, things usually not seen. The reasons you don't want Gods way is because you love the world, yourself more than God. If you're saved, live it! Do you have a problem fornicating, cussing, drinking, opening your bible, attending church, doing what God says? Check your "salvation"! Mark 8:34 You must deny yourself and get ready to suffer if you're a Christian, saved. If one has a problem following God, they are probably not saved. One must deny themselves completely, daily, suffer and follow Christ. "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." -Jim Elliot Mark 8:35 If one wants external life, they must let theirs go. If one could have everything they ever wanted from this world, money, love from others, fancy cars, large house, the best health, in the end of your life you die. None of those things will go with them. So in the end, what matters the most, the worldly needs or the eternal needs?|

|Cloak of Disguise|
|Isaiah 6:1-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We fail to see the power in Gods Word, the holy bible. When He speaks things change, things happen and they happen just as He speaks. The word of God is what makes us free. In most cases our minds are tickled by the lies of the world which is why we choose not to listen to God's word. Your agenda does not matter when it comes to God's. There is not enough self help books in the world to fix and remove your sins. We often convince ourselves that we are all we need to correct our wrong doings. Salvation is not the end, it's the beginning of your life. Everyday the enemy, satan tries to get into our minds. Our biggest problems are ourselves because we are all flesh. There has never been a bigger lie that that of the, "I'm fine" attitude. We are we the only ones that allows the devil to control our lives? It's because we want to, we are ignorant. God's truth has always been there to remove the false nature of the devil. One can't get close to perfectness without realizing your not perfect in comparison. We are worried about what others think about us more than what God knows about it. We have no excuse to lose. We live defeated lives because we chose to not live as Christ has told us. Why do we turn and resist God doing what we want to do when all the while God is the only one that knows what's good for us? Can you really see God? Can you feel God? Are their blinders in your life hiding your sins?|

|1 Peter 1:13-16 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God has called us to be holy, perfect. Thinking of some items that should fixed up is our thoughts and options that have left God out of them. If you've declared to the world that you've been saved then the world is watching you. If you continue to act like the world then there is no difference and it contradicts God. Being holy means you're perfect. How do you win someone to Christ? Be holy. To be a sacrifice for God means they do whatever it takes and they lay their life down daily. If the world looks at you are they seeing Jesus? The world has already looked at Christians and called us hypocrites because we have failed at being holy. Stop playing around the with devil and his sins. We should all apologize to God and repent for all of the second hand worthless "sacrifices " that we've tried to give Him. Have you examined yourself lately to make sure you're right with God? Did you know that if you've been born again then you are the temple of God? Which temple are you? You're either a temple of God or of satan. All the things that we do down here, if they are not of God then they are wasted.|
