How Do We Hold On to Our FAITH?

I don’t know about you, sometimes, I feel as if I am living in some type of Twilight Zone. 

In today’s times, most of us are beginning to see Prophecy being fulfilled. We are witnessing legalized sins. Sins that folks have made choices to do what’s wrong than what is right.  Nowadays, some folks have “Narcissistic Syndrome;” it’s about ME and ONLY ME.   It’s about what I believe and my moral and religious beliefs.

Oh! We must be politically correct, for we must not “Judge” to offend anyone.  Forget about God being Holy and that God’s Word is true.  It’s About Me. You heard me!

Yet, God told us that everything that we are seeing and experiencing will occur. Could it be that you did not really believe the Word of God?

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come; For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy; Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good; Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (2nd Timothy 3:1-5)

We are witnessing threats and horrible actions of terrorism being done in America and throughout the World.  America once thought that they were so powerful that NO ONE would have the nerve to come against US.  The problem with this arrogant behavior, we are, at best, human. Humans have frailties.  What impacts just one person, rather the human being resides in another continent, impacts us all.

We, as human beings, have failed terribly by disrespecting human life, any human life, that most feel didn’t meet our specific individual standards. We are witnessing countless of Christians being slaughter and burned alive in Africa and throughout our entire World.

We have Christians “adding and distracting” from the Word of God to justify their sins. We have Pastors, Bishops, and others in authority over God’s flock marrying couples that the Word of God states that is “Abomination” to the True and Living God. We have countless Christian churches – two to four on each block of most urban poverty stricken African American communities, yet none have joined together to uplift their communities, except for Racial Injustice, while blood stains cover their welcome entrances.

We are witnessing a young generation of people, of whom, once were reared in the Christian Faith, now turning away from their Christian rearing beliefs.  We have our children, youth, and adults confused to who they are as being a male and or female.

People of Color in America are killed by some of whom are to protect us. In addition, the gun killings of one another over drug turf that none pays property taxes, while the Citizens who do pay property taxes live in fear each day. A bullet does not have the name of the person that it will kill.

We have folks that loved and respect their family pets more than human life itself.  Countless news announcements of murders that our America’s Justice System says are “justified,” or states that there was not “enough sufficient evidence” to charge the perpetrators.

Then there is Corporate Greed that fills the air we breathe while our elderly, disabled, and those who suffer from mental health illnesses are being silently killed in nursing home institutions and by some physicians for Medicare and Medicaid greed. There is so much more craziness that if my mind stayed fixed on the troubles and sins throughout the world, I would lose my faith in the True and Living God. All one can do is “CRY OUT” to the true and living God!

How do we hold on to our faith in a God that seems not to care?

We hold on by KNOWING who God is: In Isaiah 45:7-8 “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things (8) “Drop down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.”

We must renew our minds to think and see spiritually connecting with the Holy Living God. We cannot think carnal. It does not work. When we accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we were transformed from carnal to spirit. This means even the solid things in our lives are spirit.

Christians must know this. Thinking spiritually is long term eternal from flesh to spirit and to spirit to spirit. Ugh? I know it sounds crazy. Yet, let the Spirit sink in and talk to God about it, and God will speak to you and He will show you.

I promised that God will.
