ENDING the PREOCCUPATION with SELF

 

Psalm 119:37

King James Version

37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; 

and quicken thou me in thy way.


Enough with self.

What one thinks.

Who one is.

How one looks.

What one wants.

How many people like you.

How accomplished you are.

All that matters is GOD now.

King Solomon knew it.

Ecclesiastes 1:1-2

King James Version

1 The words of the Preacher, 

the son of David, 

king in Jerusalem.

2 Vanity of vanities, 

saith the Preacher, 

vanity of vanities; 

all is vanity.


John the Baptist knew it.

John 3:30

King James Version

30 He must increase, 

but I must decrease.


Above all, the LORD JESUS knew it.

John 12:49-50

King James Version

49 For I have not spoken of myself; 

but the Father which sent me, 

he gave me a commandment, 

what I should say, 

and what I should speak.

50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: 

whatsoever I speak therefore, 

even as the Father said unto me, 

so I speak.


GOD is ALL that MATTERS.

Self, is as nothing.

Our life is but a vapor.

James 4:14

King James Version

14 Whereas ye know not 

what shall be on the morrow. 

For what is your life? 

It is even a vapour, 

that appeareth for a little time, 

and then vanisheth away.


Only JESUS could give you the peace, and happiness, you seek.

His WORD is the ONLY TRUE SUBSTANCE.

Without which, we're all automatons.

Engrossed with self.

With fame, fortune, face.

Creating envy, pride, greed, malice, competition among people.

Even murderous rage, in others.

What a fruitless exercise.

So very unworthy of GOD, the FATHER.

Sez who that God cares how you look?

Or how much you have?

Or how accomplished you are?

Or how important you are in the world?

That doesn't matter to God.

He only cares you SEEK Him.

Psalm 14:2

King James Version

2 The Lord looked down from heaven 

upon the children of men, 

to see if there were any 

that did understand, 

and seek God.


That you BELIEVE in His Son.

Matthew 17:5

King James Version

5 While he yet spake, 

behold, 

a bright cloud overshadowed them: 

and behold a voice out of the cloud, 

which said, 

This is my beloved Son, 

in whom I am well pleased; 

hear ye him.


That you LOVE each other.

John 13:34

King James Version

34 A new commandment I give unto you, 

That ye love one another; 

as I have loved you

that ye also love one another.


Only GOD loves us, the way we are.

Why else the perpetual mercy?

Why the constant love?

Why the never-ending forgiveness?

Why the legendary patience?

He did create us, in THEIR OWN IMAGE.

Genesis 1:26

King James Version

26 And God said, 

Let us make man in our image, 

after our likeness

and let them have dominion 

over the fish of the sea, 

and over the fowl of the air, 

and over the cattle, 

and over all the earth, 

and over every creeping thing 

that creepeth upon the earth.


And that was that.

Genesis 1:27

King James Version

27 So God created man in his own image, 

in the image of God created he him; 

male and female created he them.


So, why are you trying to fix your face?

Why are you trying to fix your gender?

Why do you try to outdo each other?

Why are you not content with self?

Why do you modify what God gave you?

Can GOD make mistakes?

Stop feeding the ego.

It will never be fed enough.

Egos belong to the enemy of CHRIST.

That's why he fell.

You belong to GOD, don't you?

It's time to make a stand.

NOW.

It's SO NOT COOL to SPY on people

 

Ecclesiastes 7:29

King James Version

29 Lo, 

this only have I found, 

that God hath made man upright; 

but they have sought out many inventions.


Does anyone have any privacy these days?

Nope.

Hardly.

Everything's up for grabs.

Sold to the highest bidder.

Personal information stolen, bank accounts hacked, industries hacked.

Malice everywhere.

People turn whistleblowers when they can't stomach it anymore.

At great risk of their lives, and those they care about.

And yet, they are compelled to make a stand.


We've all become voyeurs.

Spying on everyone.

Tracking everyone.

Checking what the Joneses are up to.

Nothing can be held sacred for the individual anymore.

And yet, we're all children of GOD.

Ephesians 4:4-6

King James Version

4 There is one body,

 and one Spirit, 

even as ye are called 

in one hope of your calling;

5 One Lord, 

one faith, 

one baptism,

6 One God and Father of all, 

who is above all, 

and through all, 

and in you all.


Galatians 3:26-28

King James Version

26 For ye are all the children of God 

by faith in Christ Jesus.

27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ 

have put on Christ.

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, 

there is neither bond nor free, 

there is neither male nor female: 

for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.


But you're not Christian, you'd say.

Much less born again.

Precisely.

If you were, you would not invent anything that would spy on others, whether for malice, or for industry.

Has the world turned so neurotic, we don't trust each other anymore?

Better yet, don't we trust GOD?

That He knows what He's doing?

That all have been prophesied?

That everything's in the hand of GOD?

Or do we believe in GOD, at all?

If we don't, there's obviously a problem.

Why do we spy on people, track them, or hunt them like animals?

To what end?

To what extent?

For what purpose?

World domination?

Why do we create fear in others?

Why can't we make them breathe easy, for a change?

Life's pretty hard enough, as it is.

Others, barely able to make a living.

Most, confused by what's happening in the world.

Many, fearful for themselves, their families, their futures.

Don't we have enough concerns, and anxieties on our mind?

Are the resources of the world really not enough, for everyone?

How much does the rich man need?

Can he bring all that where we're all going?

Life is but a vapor.

James 4:14

King James Version

14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. 

For what is your life? 

It is even a vapour, 

that appeareth for a little time, 

and then vanisheth away.


We were born with nothing.

We leave this world with nothing.

Job 1:21

King James Version

21 And said, 

Naked came I out of my mother's womb, 

and naked shall I return thither: 

the Lord gave, 

and the Lord hath taken away; 

blessed be the name of the Lord.


Oh, and let's not forget that JESUS can return anytime.

To have His faithful, both dead, and living, meet Him up in the air.

ANY MOMENT GOD CHOOSES.

Mark 13:32

King James Version

32 But of that day and that hour 

knoweth no man, 

no, 

not the angels which are in heaven, 

neither the Son, 

but the Father.


We call that the RAPTURE.


If you are born again, born of water, and of the Spirit, you'd be preparing for that event, and walking in the SPIRIT.

Galatians 5:16-17

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, 

and the Spirit against the flesh: 

and these are contrary the one to the other: 

so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.


You'll reap FRUITS of the SPIRIT.

Galatians 5:22-23

King James Version

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, 

joy, 

peace, 

longsuffering, 

gentleness, 

goodness, 

faith,

23 Meekness, 

temperance: 

against such there is no law.


You'd be a man of faith, trusting GOD alone.

Mark 11:22-24

King James Version

22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, 

Have faith in God.

23 For verily I say unto you, 

That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, 

Be thou removed, 

and be thou cast into the sea; 

and shall not doubt in his heart, 

but shall believe that those things which he saith 

shall come to pass; 

he shall have whatsoever he saith.

24 Therefore I say unto you, 

What things soever ye desire, 

when ye pray, 

believe that ye receive them, 

and ye shall have them.


You will not worry what another man's thinking, doing, saying, or planning.

The only thing that will matter is your personal relationship with JESUS.

Colossians 3:1-2

King James Version

3 If ye then be risen with Christ, 

seek those things which are above, 

where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, 

not on things on the earth.


You will look kindly upon each other, praying to JESUS, what the LORD's will is, that you may fulfill it.

You will study Scripture, and live by it.

All you need to know to live, love, and serve, can be found in the Bible.

The WORD of GOD is the most BEAUTIFUL thing in the world.

The one that saves our soul.

And causes no harm to others.

Forget about spying.

All that neurotic activity belongs to the enemy of CHRIST.

The one who continually lusts for power.

The one the LORD witnessed falling from heaven.

Luke 10:18

King James Version

18 And he said unto them, 

I beheld Satan as lightning 

fall from heaven.


Who do you serve?

Man's greed MUST STOP

 

FACING the croc:

James 5:1-6

King James Version

5 Go to now, 

ye rich men, 

weep and howl for your miseries 

that shall come upon you.

2 Your riches are corrupted, 

and your garments are motheaten.

3 Your gold and silver is cankered; 

and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, 

and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. 

Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

4 Behold, 

the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, 

which is of you kept back by fraud, 

crieth: 

and the cries of them which have reaped 

are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, 

and been wanton; 

ye have nourished your hearts, 

as in a day of slaughter.

6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; 

and he doth not resist you.


Man has a pet.

He calls it a crocodile.

The kind that can never be fed enough.

The kind with razor-sharp teeth.

The kind that pretends to sleep -- but with its mouth open.

Man brings this pet everywhere.

To his home, at social gatherings, and especially in the workplace.

This pet devours all competition.

With its mouth, or its tail, all are demolished.

What it lacks in length of claws, it makes up for its huge, wide, gaping jaws.

Those in the know, realize man and his pet serve a different god.

Of course, you're not supposed to know that.

So, deals are sweetened.

You are kept asleep.

Uninformed.

Deceived.

They make you bite a tiny chunk, but there are more chunks to bite.

For a price.

Until man sells his soul to the devil.

For there's the mortgage, the kids' education, his wife needs to impress the neighbors, he needs to dress for success, he needs to be accepted in top cliques.

There's that golf club membership he's eyeing.

And that pool, which looks enticing.

Those kids simply have to end up in ivy-league schools.

The world set the standards for success.

And you bit into it.

You get seduced in shady deals.

Your ignorance, or innocence, is too inviting.

Your greed is even more inviting.

"What you don't know, can't possibly hurt you."

What a lie.

That needs to be amended.

"What you don't know, will definitely destroy you."

And possibly all you care for.

For, if they can't get to you, they'll get to those you care for.

Programming.

Propaganda.

Bit by bit.

Inch by inch.

Infiltration.

Manipulation.

Deception.

There's that D word again.

Taking so many forms.

As much as your imaginative mind can wrap on.

Except, there are many innocents.

Who have no idea the scheme.

The legendary greed.

The enemy behind it all.


We've all been there.

We know what we speak of.

We were taught to parrot, "What's in it for me?"

When, in truth, what's in it for the marketer, the producer, the investors, the proponents, the supporters, the lenders, the supposedly "thought" (less) leaders.

Ideas abound.

How to separate man, from his money.

Oldest game in the world?

All other professions follow it.

Where before, it was gold.

Even diamonds.

It became notes.

It became digital.

Always out of reach for God's favored poor.

The more you can't see it, the more dangerous it is.

For, in the twinkling of an eye, all can be frozen.

All can be withheld.

All can disappear.

It's digital, right?

It's really a war of the spirit.

What demons call ether.

But I serve a different SPIRIT.

And the LORD's Turf, only those of God can tread.

With Spirit, ALL is KNOWN.

All have been prophesied.

Hebrews 4:13

King James Version

13 Neither is there any creature 

that is not manifest in his sight: 

but all things are naked and opened 

unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.


The devil's really on a roll.

He's on his last roll, that's why.

In the meantime, the LORD watches closely.

Watching who are His.

Waking up His anointed.

Warning the rest.

He is the loving shepherd, who cares for that one lost sheep missing.

He will scour the countryside, for that one, lost sheep.

Even if it be in the croc's mouth.

Like what happened to the reluctant prophet, God can have croc vomit us out.

Especially if we are His.

Luke 21:18

King James Version

18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.


Why the greed?

The world has enough food, to feed the hungry.

The world has enough materials, to house the poor.

The world has enough cloth, to clothe the freezing.

The croc doesn't need clothes.

He'd look funny with designer duds.

All he has is that mouth.

A wide, gaping mouth.

That can never be fed enough.

On the day of GOD's choosing, that mouth will forever be shut.

And thrown in that bottomless pit.

Would you go along?

I hope not.

SPIRIT hopes not.

The LORD JESUS hopes not.

Does the Lord's life mean something to you?

For He bought you for a price.

 1 Corinthians 6:20

King James Version

20 For ye are bought with a price: 

therefore glorify God in your body, 

and in your spirit, 

which are God's.


You are not meant to end up in those jaws.

1 Peter 5:8

King James Version

8 Be sober, 

be vigilant; 

because your adversary the devil, 

as a roaring lion, 

walketh about,

 seeking whom he may devour:


You are meant to be with GOD.

James 5:7-8

King James Version

7 Be patient therefore, 

brethren, 

unto the coming of the Lord

Behold, 

the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth

and hath long patience for it, 

until he receive the early and latter rain.

8 Be ye also patient; 

stablish your hearts: 

for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.


Drop all ideas of greed.

Hebrews 13:5

King James Version

5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; 

and be content with such things as ye have

for he hath said, 

I will never leave thee, 

nor forsake thee.


In  God's world, there's plenty for everyone.

Deuteronomy 28:1-6

King James Version

28 And it shall come to pass, 

if thou shalt hearken diligently 

unto the voice of the Lord thy God, 

to observe and to do all his commandments 

which I command thee this day, 

that the Lord thy God will set thee on high 

above all nations of the earth:

2 And all these blessings shall come on thee,

and overtake thee, 

if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.

3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, 

and blessed shalt thou be in the field.

4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, 

and the fruit of thy ground, 

and the fruit of thy cattle,

 the increase of thy kine, 

and the flocks of thy sheep.

5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.

6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, 

and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.


For the TRUE faithful?

GOD suffices.

Psalm 119:97

King James Version

97 O how love I thy law! 

it is my meditation all the day.

A TRUE born again MUST sin NO more

 

Ephesians 1:7

King James Version

7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

according to the riches of his grace;


It seems, in my own simple, childlike mind, it was very easy to understand a verse the Holy Spirit gave me early this year:

Hebrews 10:26

King James Version

26 For if we sin wilfully 

after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, 

there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,


The Holy Spirit is the SPIRIT of TRUTH.

Jesus promised:

John 16:13

King James Version

13 Howbeit when he, 

the Spirit of truth, 

is come, 

he will guide you into all truth

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, 

that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.


When you become born again, you follow Jesus.

You believe in everything He is.

You are taught by His Spirit.

You are anointed by His Spirit.

As such, you are led back to Christ.

You now know His commandments.

Does it make sense, then, that we born agains continue to sin?

Are there any more excuses not to follow the commandments of the Lord, now that we are His?

We now know the knowledge of His TRUTH.

That suffices, and the path is forward with the Lord.

Knowledge of God, Scripture, and Jesus, will arm us along the way.

For the way will be filled with traps, and ambushes.

We will be constantly targeted by the enemy.

And yet, we are to wear the ARMOR of GOD.

If we are true born agains, the path is to sin no more.

The Lord already shed His precious blood, so we may be saved.

He took on sin, where He had none.

He took on humiliation, when He was King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

There is no more excuse not to seek perfection for the Lord.

He did say He will come quickly.

Are we ready?

We must be true to the WORD.

We must sin NO MORE.

Right this moment.

John 8:10-11

King James Version

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, 

and saw none but the woman, 

he said unto her, 

Woman, 

where are those thine accusers? 

hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, 

No man, Lord. 

And Jesus said unto her, 

Neither do I condemn thee: 

go, 

and sin no more.


"But I'm not born again, " you'd probably say.

Be not so quick to scoff at us.

For it is the Lord's command we be born again.

If you want to be with Jesus in His kingdom, you MUST be born again.

John 3:3

King James Version

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born again, 

he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Staying TRUE to the WORD of GOD


Galatians 1:8-9

King James Version

8 But though we, 

or an angel from heaven, 

preach any other gospel unto you 

than that which we have preached unto you, 

let him be accursed.

9 As we said before, 

so say I now again, 

if any man preach any other gospel unto you 

than that ye have received, 

let him be accursed.


I testify to the beauty of the Bible.

Scripture is wonderful to learn from.

How can it not be?

It is the WORD of GOD.

The Bible has been my ONLY reference for ALL things divine -- GOD, JESUS, the HOLY SPIRIT -- for over 20 months now.

You will love listening to the hour-long video above, from these dedicated Scripture, and end times teachers:

Amir Tsarfati 

Jan Markell

Barry Stagner

Mike Golay


Amir Tsarfati shared that verse above, as well as another verse cautioning us about false doctrines, contrary to what Jesus taught.

Romans 16:17

King James Version

17 Now I beseech you, brethren, 

mark them which cause divisions and offences 

contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; 

and avoid them.


Unless you're born again, you will not understand the beauty, simplicity, and sacredness of the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST.

You will keep looking to other sources, that are eager to mislead you.

Only by the Holy Spirit of God can you know what is true, or not.

The Lord JESUS warned us about false prophets.

Matthew 7:15

King James Version

15 Beware of false prophets, 

which come to you in sheep's clothing, 

but inwardly they are ravening wolves.


Apostle Peter reveals what will happen to such false prophets.

2 Peter 2:1

King James Version

2 But there were false prophets also among the people, 

even as there shall be false teachers among you, 

who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, 

even denying the Lord that bought them, 

and bring upon themselves swift destruction.


Beware who you listen to.

Beware what you believe in.

Focus on seeking God, with all your heart, and He will send His Holy Spirit to teach you, and reveal many things to you.

JESUS promised:

Matthew 6:33

King James Version

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, 

and his righteousness; 

and all these things shall be added unto you.

For Those PLANNING to CURB Human POPULATION

 

Genesis 1:27-28

King James Version

27 So God created man in his own image

in the image of God created he him; 

male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, 

and God said unto them, 

Be fruitful, 

and multiply

and replenish the earth, 

and subdue it: 

and have dominion over the fish of the sea, 

and over the fowl of the air, 

and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.


We were created to multiply.

Can earth sustain such a population?

We doubt the wisdom of God?

Isaiah 40:22

King James Version

22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, 

and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers

that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, 

and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:


Obviously, the population control planners (let me call them pcp), think they must be in charge, thus the Georgia Guidestones, eugenics, and whatever scheme you may have for the unsuspecting population.

The Georgia Guidestones called for keeping population to 500-M.

Well, the world is now at 7.8 billion.

Uh-oh, we've all gone overboard.

What happens to the 7.3 billion?

What do you plan to do with us?

Perhaps, it's a better idea to wait for God's plan, eh?

Don't be too eager to finish us off.

Ever heard of the Rapture?

Jesus tells us what to expect:

Matthew 24:39-41

King James Version

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.


It can happen ANY moment, btw.

So, 7.8 billion people could become 3.9 billion.

That's a possibility, to one who knows basic math.

I'm not being flippant.

As born again, I am true to Scripture, it being the WORD of GOD.

The Holy Spirit leads me to God's TRUTH.

So, dear pcp's, what are you worrying about?

Our population's now down to 3.9 billion.

Minus the 500 million, you only have to deal with the remaining 3.4 billion.

Still a lot?

Why not the Book of Revelation solve it for you?

For starters:

Revelation 6:3-4

King James Version

3 And when he had opened the second seal

I heard the second beast say, 

Come and see.

4 And there went out another horse that was red: 

and power was given to him that sat thereon 

to take peace from the earth, 

and that they should kill one another: 

and there was given unto him a great sword.


Revelation 6:7-8

King James Version

7 And when he had opened the fourth seal

I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, 

Come and see.

8 And I looked, 

and behold a pale horse: 

and his name that sat on him was Death, 

and Hell followed with him. 

And power was given unto them 

over the fourth part of the earth, 

to kill with sword, 

and with hunger, 

and with death, 

and with the beasts of the earth.


Revelation 6:12-13

King James Version

12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal

and, lo, 

there was a great earthquake; 

and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, 

and the moon became as blood;

13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, 

even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, 

when she is shaken of a mighty wind.


Happy, yet?

How many do you think survived among the remaining 3.9 billion?

Of course, only God knows.

You think that's the end of it?

There's more, dear readers.

Revelation 7:1-4

King James Version

7 And after these things I saw four angels 

standing on the four corners of the earth, 

holding the four winds of the earth

that the wind should not blow on the earth, 

nor on the sea, 

nor on any tree.

2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, 

having the seal of the living God

and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels

to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3 Saying, 

Hurt not the earth, 

neither the sea, 

nor the trees, 

till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: 

and there were sealed an hundred 

and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.


Thing is, God's seal on His people's forehead is not the same mark as the one on your forehead.

Revelation 13:16-17

King James Version

16 And he causeth all, 

both small and great, 

rich and poor, 

free and bond, 

to receive a mark in their right hand, 

or in their foreheads:


17 And that no man might buy or sell, 

save he that had the mark, 

or the name of the beast, 

or the number of his name.


Are you trying to be a copycat, or something?

If we shared the same seal, you wouldn't even think of getting rid of us.

Sure you want me to continue?

Coz we're still a long way off from God's plans.

What were you thinking, really?

Your plan was prophesied.

But the LORD JESUS is so different from you.

He's got heart.

He's merciful.

John 6:37-40

King James Version

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; 

and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

38 For I came down from heaven, 

not to do mine own will, 

but the will of him that sent me.

39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, 

that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, 

but should raise it up again at the last day.

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 

that every one which seeth the Son, 

and believeth on him, 

may have everlasting life: 

and I will raise him up at the last day.


How can you even think of finishing God's people off?

Or any life, for that matter.

You really are off.


NOTE: For pcp's eager to finish God's people off, why not wait? We are ALL mortals. We will all pass on, in time. Why are you in such a hurry? Only God decides when, and how. It is not for man to decide.

Whoever breathed life into us, is the ONLY ONE who can take life out of us.

Genesis 2:7

King James Version

7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, 

and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; 

and man became a living soul.


Please don't play God.
