April 17

One of my new favorite things to do is to sit in a shady spot on the pass between Sand Key Park and Clearwater Beach and watch the boats go past. Richard found this special place while exploring the park on his bike. There is a lot of activity in the area since it’s a tourist destination, but the beauty of the aqua-colored water, the rocks, and the sea life make it something to behold. Even though we're close to everything, there something peaceful about encountering nature and seeing God’s creativity in a private location among the madness. Seeking a moment with God during chaotic times gives us a respite and should be prescribed daily, so we keep our sanity and renew our connection with the Almighty. I recommend that you take a few minutes today and rest your mind; seek God in nature, and give him a bit of praise and thanksgiving for the things he has given you. You’ll be amazed at how good you will feel after giving him what he deserves.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. Psalms 100:4-5

Part 2. But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 1 Corinthians 6:17

How beautiful is it that the LORD consents to become one spirit with us? Yesterday, I wrote about how troubling it was to be of one spirit with God because of His holiness and our sinfulness, but today I want to show how magnificent it is regardless of how sinful we are in our flesh. 

When we think of blessings, we think of our possessions, but that is not our blessing; being one with the LORD is, and no amount of material possessions can compare. When we walk by faith and not by sight, Jesus walks with us every step of the way. You may not think you hear God’s voice, but because you have turned and accepted him, he becomes the guiding force behind your actions. He shows us love when we feel nothing; he sings over us because He delights in our existence; he gives us the desires of our hearts and makes us feel worthy. We are worthy because he is worthy. Feel blessed today and every day, knowing we are one with God; he says it’s true, so I believe him, and so should you.

Here is a verse that slapped me in the face this morning: 

But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 1 Corinthians 6:17

I’ve probably read this verse a hundred times, but for some reason, it never impacted me like today. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, and he gave us his wisdom and discernment as a gift. We are one spirit with him! Some of y’all need to tune in; just saying. Being one spirit with God should stop us in our tracks from doing stuff that is counter to his righteousness, yet we struggle daily to keep our minds and bodies free from sin. It should also stop us from putting ourselves down; it seems that would be a sin against him, too. We know our sin is an offense to ourselves and others affected by it, but knowing that we are subjecting God to our sin takes it to a whole different level. Keeping this in context, if you are involved in adultery or fornication, what are you doing?! That’s very troubling. If ever there was a verse that needed to be bound on your fingers and written on the tablet of your heart, this would be it! Consider your actions, and remember that you are one spirit with Jesus!

There are choices you must make during your lifetime. Some of them will be good for your health, but others will degrade it. There are many more items that we consume that will lead to disease than healthy things. As Christ-followers, we should make good choices. 

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I know it’s hard, especially when it comes to food! I love cake, pie, and donuts, and sometimes I succumb to those delicacies, but I know that I should limit my intake because they are not suitable for my health. Not only that, but I notice a difference in hearing God’s voice. Who would have thought that food could make a difference? Imagine what drugs can do to you, legal or illegal. We have become very accustomed to popping a pill for whatever ails us, but what if all you needed to do was change your diet? Most people would rather take medication. You’ve cut sin out of your life, now consider cleaning up the rest of it.

The fencing in DC is coming down. You won’t hear that on television. Up until a little after 1 a.m. this morning, there was no one on the streets. I know this because I follow a guy on the Telegram app that drives around DC and gives video documentation of what’s going on; most of the time, his version of events doesn’t fit the media's narrative because he brings the truth to light. You can hear Christian music playing in the background of his videos; pay attention to the clues. If you sincerely want to know the truth, it’s out there for you to find; you need to follow God’s cues. There are a few crazies on Telegram because it’s uncensored, so you have to filter the good from the bad; that’s why it’s essential to tune into the Holy Spirit for discernment. God is in the midst of what’s going on around the world. He has a plan to disarm the evil wiles of the devil, so it’s crucial for the patriots of God to join him and to jump in and help fight this battle. You must put on your armor, or you will get torn to shreds! Armor up! In the end, we win; but don’t become a casualty of the battle.

Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything. 2 Timothy 2:7

Real conspiracies are going on in the world today, but you won’t listen because you don’t want to hear lies or believe the “crazy” people who are spewing conspiracy theories. The biggest lie that you believe is that there are no conspiracies. If you fall for that particular lie, the media and the conspirators have you exactly where they want you; they are leading you around like a dog on a leash. Then, when you finally decide to research the information to disprove the theorist, you use Google for your search, and there is nothing there because Google is filtering your data. If you want to do fundamental research, you need to change your search engine to Duck Duck Go. Why am I telling you this? Because the enemy is teaching us to conform to the standard he has set, and we are falling into his traps. If the people of God don’t wake up and stop going along with this madness, the enemy will win this battle. The truth is out there; it cannot hide under the bed any longer; it’s time to expose it!

“No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care then how you hear, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away.” Luke 8:16-18

You aren’t getting the truth when you watch the television news. If you are still watching it, you are being programmed to believe their lies and deceived by their appearance of sincerity. Satan has control over that industry. He controls the government, music, and entertainment industries, too; don’t think your “Christian” music is unaffected; he’s slimed his way into that industry too. All the things they have hoodwinked us into believing will be exposed as lies; when God reveals the truth, it will be a hard pill to swallow. History, wars, devastating situations that appear to be genuine, maybe a government set-up to make money, or possibly a cover to take the attention away from their nefarious dealings, and the news industry is a paid participant. God will uncover the dastardly deeds! He will only allow injustice to carry on for so long before he steps in to expose the lies. Wait for it; expect it to happen very soon. When you finally see it and feel devastated, remember, God is in control.

When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. 

One who wanders from the way of good sense will rest in the assembly of the dead. Proverbs 21:15-16
