For years, I believed Lust, was just about sex. It isn’t.
Lust isn’t just something that young boys and old men battle. It is a battle all, male and females fight.
Lust is covetousness. It is:
The apple is good to make one wise, to be like God.
The guy across the street got a new car… (I need one).
Why did he get the promotion? I ‘m better, smarter, work harder, and more deserving than him.
Lust is a big problem for Pastors also.
I have heard, from Pastors…
All they do is music and drama, I heard they allow drinking, they don’t preach the true Gospel, like I do.
They teach a false Gospel, they itch the ears of the people.
That’s why so many attend there.
GROW UP… THEIR CHURCHES GROW, BECAUSE THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IS THERE.
Yes, you preach what you understand is the Gospel, and it is. Only there is no power.
The Gospel is confirmed by signs,wonders and miracles.
Some miracles are crowds being saved… like Billy Graham’s ministry. Maybe the 600 member church down the street, is seeing this.
Some miracles are Healings, signs and wonders like Katherin Kuhlman, RW Shamboch, Oral Roberts, Benny Hinn.
Do you notice anyone missing? Yeah, me and you.
I lust, yes I covet, a pulpit, a platform, a ministry that sees people saved, healed, comforted….
I do not reject those who are successful, I long to learn… to grow.
That is my desire. Is it God’s desire? I guess not, He hasn’t opened any doors of utterance.
I have prayed. He tells me the Blog is my platform.
I wonder if it helps anyone to grow closer to Christ?
Does anyone really read and understand?
I believe the big ministries are anointed of God and have many followers, not because they are fakes, but because they have fasted, prayed, studied, and groaned in prayer.
Until they have touched the hem of His garment. They have learned to come boldly to the throne of Grace.
They know how to pray and walk in the will of God. Are they perfect? lol, not even close.
They know how to repent and keep pushing closer to Christ.
They have found Grace and Mercy in their time of need.
They needed the presence of God in their lives more than their next breath.
When that is true for me….. and you, we will see. God confirming His Word.
Mark 16:17-18 (KJV)
“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
“And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.”
Do we really believe?
2 Timothy 3:16
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
Do not throw the Word out. The change must be in us. Amen
