What shall I do? theunfetteredpreacher

Exodus 17:4
“And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me.”

I cried unto the Lord.  “What must I do, these people reject Your Truths.   They are almost ready to stone me.”

Yes, it is true. 

If You called me to lead?  I am a lost. If You called me to teach?  I am failing.   If You called me to serve?  I have missed the mark, of Your high calling.

If You called me to see?  I am blind.  To hear?  I am deaf.    If You called me to care?  I am torn asunder.

Since You brought me to this UMC, my focus, my zeal, my calling has evolved.   I used to invite the lost to come to the Spirit Filled Fellowships, I attended.

I find myself discouraging people from coming to this Church.  Why?

I believe they are Saved and love the Lord.  That should be enough.  I wish it was. 

They lack the Love, Joy and Peace, that is evident in the Spirit Filled, Saints.  They know not what is missing.  Because it is Spiritually discerned.

It could be me, my fault.  I am a bull, in a china shop. 
I push.  I prod.  I  beseech.   To to touch hearts, to open minds, to  change lives, is not in me.  I  need You.

If Your Holy Spirit is teaching me?   I am failing the course.   

Lord please, “What shall I do?”  I believe I am here in obedience.  To learn, to grow to become, …

What?  A joke?  

The people are satisfied, happy, content where they are.  They have zero desire to change.

Show me Thy Way, Oh Lord.  I must have Your anointing in my life.  To allow You to make a difference.   Amen

The Ministry Years: – 40th Miracle – the risen Christ- theunfetteredpreacher

The Risen Christ, not yet Resurrected, not yet in His Glorified Body, appeared first to Mary Magdalene.

A women, that He had cast out seven devils.

How is it possible that she was the one and only who saw Jesus, alive, yet before ascending to the Father and being Glorified?

“saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.”

Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

We have seen her many times (12), in the Gospels.

She was special, the others with her, had left, she stayed in tears.

Like John, the Disciple that rested on Jesus’s breast, and was the only Disciple to die a natural death.

Mary Magdalene, was Special for her love.

Please do not misunderstand, all the Disciples loved the Lord, and the Lord loved them all.

Somehow, both John and Mary, had found the Holy of Holies, the special place, the secret place, under the shadow of His wings.

They found the place of rest, that remains for all who love Him.

Oh Lord, help me to find and enter into the Secret Place, the place where I will see, (Psalms 91), “A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

The Secret Place, Lord, I long to live there. Amen

Mark 16:9-11 (KJV)

Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.

And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.

John 20:11-18 (KJV)

But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou?

She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.

And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?

She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.

Oh, the humanity: theunfetteredpreacher

Oh, the humanity.

13 dead, and 1 dead, from a deliberate terrorism by car.

The Media is consumed with our President aligning the KKK to Antifa and BLM’s.

The implication is Antifa, and BLM, are Righteous, their cause Just, that the Lawbreaking, Police Killing, Confederate History Erasing , is all normal behavior.

IT IS NOT.

The KKK is despicable, as are Antifa and BLM’s.

They are all terrorists. They should be prosecuted and jailed. If caught in the act, SHOT….

We need to adhere to the law. Respect the law. Support the law abiding, and prosecute the lawless.

The President is right. The left… KKK, ANTIFA AND BLM’s, are ALL EQUALLY AT FAULT.

Quit pretending, the lefts, law breakers, are great people, and the Conservatives, (not the KKK), but Conservatives, Patriots, people who just want to Make America Great Again, are the ones to hate.

We need to use our God given intellect, to sort through the lies and intellectual dishonesty of the left, and join together to, MAGA.

Rant complete. Amen

The Ministry Years: Miracle 38. – – theunfetteredpreacher

Luke 22:48-54 (KJV)

The healing of the servant of the high priests ear.

No muss, no fuss, He reached out and touched. Why do we have such a hard time, accepting the promise of our doing the same?

We no longer  believe like a little child, knowing our needs and desires are met.

Just a touch from Jesus, saves, heals, sets free, comforts, gives peace, joy, and love.

Accept Him and His Gifts today.

Don’t be like Peter.

 

Luke 22:48-54 (KJV)

48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.
51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
52 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
53 When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
54 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest’s house. And Peter followed afar off.

Boiled Over: theunfetteredpreacher

White Supremacy, white privilege, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, KKK, Black Panthers…ect, ect, ect…..

All groups full of hate.

What to do? Have we strayed so far from God, we are doomed?

Has the Godless left won?

Is our youth, so intellectually challenged, that they do not recognize how foolish it is to try to erase history?

Our esteemed Governor, Roy Cooper has jumped on the band wagon, he would remove all the Confederate Statues to museums….

STOP THIS MADNESS…. STOP IT, STOP IT, STOP IT….

You cannot change history. If you forget it, you are bound to repeat it.

There is much in my life, I am ashamed of.   There is much, I wish,  that I never had thought of doing, never mind having done.

But, it is done.  I was a fool, who did foolish things that hurt others and myself.  I am sorry for my failures, my mistakes, my SINS.

They happened.  I cannot deny them.  They are part of my History.  A History that cannot be changed.

It can only be regretted, repented of, and denied the opportunity to occur again.

A changed heart and mind are required.

Why are we so offended by inanimate objects?

While we are not offended, by the  disregard of our laws?  Public property, destroyed,  of thinking, if we do not see it, it never happened.

Pulling down statutes,  does not erase the truth they represent.

Quit acting like ignorant 14th century people.

We must learn from our past.  Make a better future.

Quit repeating the horrors we are trying to erase.

Lord, come soon.   Amen
