Piggybackin' sorta off the topic of "choices" and how to make em.

There are consequences for the choices that we individually and as a nation will make. Yes, these choices have an end result. You'll make some choices, I will make some choices, our leaders will make some and guess what.. those choices will turn around so to speak and make us. They can change who we are.

My friend @DSLgroup (Dan) just brought up some great discussion questions about choices. Love it! Wants something more said on this topic. He always starts good discussions with such great topics like this one. Yup, he basically asked:

  1. What major choices in life do we all face?
  2. Did you ever make a bad choice because you did not consult with God first? (1 Samuel 16:7)
  3. Have you been characterized as a person who makes good choices and what have you learned from some bad decisions ..if any?
  4. How does our self-image affect our choices in life? (Psalm 139:13-14)
  5. Can we at any point along the way choose to be different or are we pre-programed and helpless.
  6. What bad choices am I living with right now?
  7. Do you feel that any of the choices you’ve made negatively affect your relationship with God?
  8. Due to openness am I able to help anyone I love to make better choices?
  9. In what way am I obligated to make the best choices possible?
  10. How can I recover from a bad choice that I have made in the past?
“Choose to cultivate your inner person, and don’t sacrifice your character on the road to success.” ~ Anon.

"By me (godly wisdom for decision-making..) princes rule, and nobles, All the judges of the earth. I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me." Prov. 8:16-17.nkjv
“It is our choices... that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” ― J.K. Rowling

While out walking my dog today, five minutes ago I just got of the phone with a dear family member who is not yet a Christian. Been praying for this person for several years. And while I was on my Android with this person, I felt like the Holy Spirit told me to (and I really don’t say this often at all..) clearly share the Gospel with them.

I had to silently pray about how to.. as this conversation with them continued on because I didn’t want to offend them. So I started it out with the topic of gaining an inner assurance of salvation here while living. Part of what I said was, “Any of us can in a few moments gain this valuable assurance through repentance, faith in Christ, and a simple relationship with Him.” But this respectfully relative disagreed based off some friend's "experience" ..that God will appear to each one of us after we die to give us a chance to be saved. Please don't base your choices off of feelings, visions, or anyone's experiences. Base em on the Word of God that's true and can't change! I want you to early on have a real rather than a false assurance of salvation inside.

The Bible says, “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:13-15 nkjv

“And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation” Hebrews 9:27-28 nkjv

No reincarnation, no Karma, no gettin' saved after one reaches room temperature. For over 38 years now I’ve been doing my best to tell my relative and friends about this assurance. I’ve told them that choices really matter and that that choice is more important than all the rest of em.

It’s the big choice: Will you turn from sin and commit you life to Christ or reject Him by putting it off or saying no? Yes indeed, deep down you too know that’s life’s most important choice. Our conscience confirms this. We are sinners in need of this Savior. We all need to grow up spiritually relationship with this Savior! God says...

"Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life." Deut. 30:19-20a.nlt

“And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Josh. 24:15.nkjv

And the second most important choice of life is who and when and how you will marry ..if you will. And most do.
Yeah, I've been tellin' believers here in the USA and in different Lands that it is so important to often pause and inquire of the Lord about all this, to really hear from Him, and to just make biblical choices accordingly. The Bible says, “Refuse the evil, and choose the good” (Isa. 7:15). It says, “Do not envy the oppressor, and choose none of his ways” (Prov. 3:31). Elihu remarked, “Let us choose justice for ourselves; let us know among ourselves what is good” (Job 34:4).

Some choices we are faced with in life are difficult and the risk factors involved can make them seem unreasonable. Our close friends often influence us in how we choose. “The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray” (Prov. 12:26). I like how Warren Wiersbe put it, “People reveal their true selves by the choices they make. Remember Lot when he put himself ahead of Abraham.” But God's children have the advantage of making choices differently than people in the world — with eternal value in mind.

"By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter" (Heb. 11:24). Moses was the adopted grandson of a king (a Pharaoh) who had no sons. Think of it, he was next in line to the throne. His position within the royal family allowed him many privileges including access to the wealth of Egypt. The archeological findings in the tomb of King Tut, who lived just one hundred years after Moses, testify to the great wealth and privilege of this royal family.

Moses could have chased his wildest dreams in the world, but instead he chose to deny himself and walk wisely by faith and leave Egypt behind. From a worldly standpoint, he sacrificed so much, but from a spiritual standpoint, he looked to the eternal value of his decision. There was so much to gain and I'm sure he never regretted his wise choice! The idea of dying to self is still an essential part of following the Lord. Choosing to follow the Spirit and walk by faith into the unknown – that’s far better than exchanging God's plan for your life in the interest of personal gain! You should never fear trusting your unknown future into the loving hands of a known God.

Moses sacrificed Egypt's comfy posh luxury for the sweet intimacy of a relationship with God and then God used Him in a great way. Had some suffering mixed in there too--the godly will suffer some. But didn't matter to Mo, he knew he chose what was best for all. So what about you? Does God want to deepen your faith through a choice you are faced with today? Sure, He desires to bless and deep our faith no matter who we are, because He so loves all of us the same. Pray, listen well, and choose wisely! “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life” (Deut. 30:19). 

Peter Marshall once said, “The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration.” 

I say, choose God’s lovely Son and His will for you! If you are away, come to Christ today and get real with Him. Little eyes are watching you. Giving your life to Christ is the best gift you can give – it’s also best for your family. Look past the temporal to the eternal value of your decision. As we gather together with friends and loved ones this holiday season, let’s remember to follow the example of Mo. Put the Lord and his will first! There is so much more at stake than choosing the right Christmas gifts, events and tree this year!

How well does it work having over ninety percent of the media lean hard left? Want to see?

Want to see how the liberal media has worked to help form the nation’s perceptions here?

Q:  How many gay people do you think there are here really? Did you know that the C.D.C. says that only 3.4 percent of the population is gay LGBT people. How many of them really want monogamy or to get married.. is it even one percent? Man, that would make one percent of the entire population and five non-Constitutional styled judges behind this ginormous radical national change.

New Poll: The average person in the USA falsely convinced that gay people make up 24 percent of the population. Imagine that if you will, cuz that’s 8 times higher than there really are. And women and young people erroneously think that gay people make up 35 percent of the population. 

It’s like the liberal media adds a big megaphone to the group's voice in this society. We'll see it more and more. Man, Joseph Goebbels, the master propagandist could not have pulled off that level of tweaking in the collective perception. 

"Walking down Broadway and 22nd Street just now, I ran into a gay marriage parade. Two men walked by and spat on me. Oh well... I deserve worse." ~ Jonathan Morris, a 

I deserve worse too. I actually deserve the Cross cuz I'm a sinner too. It's amazing that Christ took worse for me. The Authoritative Bible says, "The wages of sin is death,
 but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23 

Morris' ugly situation with spit on him just shows what's ahead ..and has already started. Did you know that the first lawsuit has already been filed by a Lesbian in a rural Texas community. I've been told we'll be assimilated. I'm not going to change what I biblically know to be true. The Lord being my Helper..and He will.. I'm stckin' with the unchanging Word! I hear the mainstream media say that our Bible is all wrong, that we all must conform, and that they at the New York Times etc are right. They're just intolerant. We'll soon see. Yes, but 'til then.. they're coming after your church's tax exempt status. Want to bring churches down, but they'll still be empty and miserable. Hey, if your local church won't do weddings for gay people. Done! You guessed it.. there'll be more persecution of Christians where no Rainbow colored White House or President will give a flip. 

Christian, remember this. We war not against flesh and blood, even if we sometimes feel like doing that. We are called to pray first. The parade peeps are only believing and doing what's normal for unregenerate people to do. When I was lost I wasn't gay, but I to used to do a lot of what lost people do and I enjoyed it. Sin is pleasurable.. fun for a season. The Holy Spirit can't reach or teach em cuz He hasn't yet been invited in..not yet welcomed inside of them.

“Christ followers, there are times where we start to lose heart as we see battles over things we hold dear are lost. Our discouragement can turn to bitterness towards people, and even hatred towards those we’d label as our enemies. Please remember… people are not the enemy… they are victims and prisoners of the true enemy. They are captives of their desires. They have no hope. We once were like them. Hopeless. Lost. Given to the darkness. But Christ and his love broke through the darkness and freed us. Please don’t allow your hearts to grow bitter. Please don’t give into the trap of complaining and negativity. Remember… though it seems we sometimes lose the battle… the WAR is already won. Christ is victorious. He has done it. He is coming back! The war was won with Love (on a cross at Calvary), not hate. The harvest is plenty. But we won’t see it if we view sinners as the enemy. We’re surrounded by captives, and Jesus has the key to the cells. It is much easier to complain about someones sin than it is to actually lovingly take the Gospel to them. Let’s not take the easy road. Do not dismay of the darkness. Take the light into it.” ~  Aaron Salvato

Jesus is risen. He lived a sinless life, died, never lied, came out of that hole in the ground and He didn’t hate people. He prayed for people, He served, He helped, and He healed them. In love He warned us of danger. He told people straight truth that would actually aid them in life. 

Be encouraged in prayer until  J O Y  remains there.  Why frown or start to drown?  Let not your hearts grow discouraged, or down.. soon there’ll be the casting of crowns! Rev. 4/10

Why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted?.. hope in God! See Psalm 43/5 

Believer, the truest love has already won. He lived, died, and revived.. or you. And Jesus will triumph over all. He is sovereign still–hasn’t fallen off His throne. What He said would happen, it has indeed happened and in the future it will happen with precise timing. Bible prophecy must be fulfilled–it is bein’ and will indeed be. He has a part and we have a part to do. But God is control even when it looks like He is not. 

There will be a future anti-Christ soon (ain’t lookin’ for him. Won’t set any dates or play pin the tail on the AC). There will be all hell breakin’ out so to speak.. on this planet, but first there’ll be a future catching away of the real Church..out of here. It’s gunna happen. And there will also be a Second Coming and a flawless Judgement.

Listen, God loves gay people like He loves us all, but He is holy and Himself will set all things right. Still saves the repentant to trust in Christ. He still has solutions because He is the ultimate Solution for every human… if they’ll just let Him be. 

The shifting minds of Judges, presidents and leaders won’t determine our outcome. And the shifting sands of arrogant minds will never determine our precious beliefs; rather our dear Creator’s immutable Word is forever! He will. 

It ain’t about what Christians have been imposing upon the most protected group in America. It’s been about what they have been imposing upon Christians and others. It’s been about them with cruelty destroying a merchant’s livelihood and their company. Speak the truth in love today and you get.. legal retaliation! Their glee won’t last. 

The darkness has always hated the light and there are reasons why those in darkness feel that way. The Bible says, This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.”  John 3:19-20

Personally, I’ve never met one genuine Christian who hates or seeks to hurt transgenders, or gays, or ex-gay people. Never seen or met even one, and I’ve met a whole lot of people / friends in these lifestyles.

It ain’t about “Hey, can’t help it. I was born gay.” None actually were. They’ve tried but can’t prove this statement. 

It ain’t about gay being gaiety. Never has been gaiety. I often hear how miserable my shackled friends are. Had the father of a lesbian this week tell me how his daughter is always fighting her inner shame. He asked, “If it’s so natural why can’t she overcome being so ashamed about it?” 

Man, we of all people should feel empathy, concern, compassion for those trapped in this empty lifestyle of loneliness and guilt. Some move on to have a totally seared conscience.  The Bible speaks of a seared conscience in 1 Timothy 4:2. The conscience is there is help each of us. It’s the God-given moral consciousness within each one (Romans 2:15) to help guide in a good direction. If the inner conscience is “seared”—literally “cauterized”—then it has been rendered insensitive. Such a conscience simply does not work.

Proverbs 6:27 asks a rhetorical question just to illustrate the consequences of a person who has chosen the perversion of adultery: “Can a man scoop fire into his lap / without his clothes being burned?”

I wonder how a burning for any perverse sin will not cause “spiritual scar tissue” if ya will. Any sin can dull our sense of right and wrong. It’s kind of like the hide of an animal scarred deeply with a branding iron.. it’ll soon become numb to the pain. So is the hard-heart of a resistant (to the Holy Spirit) type of individual with a seared conscience–it’s desensitized to moral pangs that would normally help.

It ain’t really been about marriage primarily, it never was about that. It’s really about a battle for souls that’ll end up somewhere according to where they choose.. yes, it’s about a very real battle in the unseen around us. I don’t try to name unseen enemies or call them out. Why would any need to? 

But to those people claiming victory yesterday, it’s been all about destroying basic institutions and guess what.. they aren’t satisfied yet. They won’t be satisfied. Nope. Nor are they done fightin’ legally and in other ways for what they crave and want done here in the USA. Base Liberals and other misinformed fools with them have been fascist bullies for too long, and they are never happy even after their so called victories. They even said it in the media, “There’s a lot more work to be done!” Well, what they are wanting done.. ain’t good for America. And they’re just getting started really. Are you ready for that? You can be ready

Please know that people who love their pet-sins in the closet or out, those beloved sin-habits just won’t near satisfy em tomorrow. They’ll try different, kinkier, and more an effort to find satisfaction. Slippery slope? Yes, the floodgates have been opened. The media is already pushing polyamorous so-called love and marriages. Do you think this corrupt Gov will always stand against child-amorous. What if someone wants to marry their pet. Go ahead and scoff at this, but they used to scoff at what five non-voted-in Judges who think they are gods ..just pulled off yesterday. 

Let’s for real pray for all. Time here is short. You know God’s forgiveness and peace; they’re way better than lust and perversion. Joy in Jesus rocks cuz He is the Rock! He is holy and won’t be altered. 

Not at all sayin’ be passive, Christian. But don’t get all in the flesh and go fight people. Instead.. intercede for them and speak out. Do what you can. It’s about “in or out of Christ,” it’s about heaven or hell, “God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.” ~ Paul (msg)

Louise Melling with the ACLU now says that his creepy organization will no longer defend the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). We live in a wicked Land. Idea: Do not take anything to the very Political Supreme Court that doesn't uphold the Constitution? Don't do it. 

The Church is indeed under attack today and no political "savior" from either side can save anyone here. It's never been about "gay marriage." It's all about persecution and destroying institutions. Yes, it much bigger than mere politics. It's really the Lord's battle and our eyes need to remain fixed on Christ. No time for lukewarm, for half-halfhearted devotion, for carnality, or for any worldliness. Bible believers, hold your ground. No spiritual compromise or excuses! Put on the full armor of God and continue to take a stand against the evil. America needs both a biblical revival and awakening more than ever before. Let’s continue to love God’s Word most, to demonstrate love before all peoples. to really love and support healthy Bible teaching local churches led by sound seeing pastors. Yes, ditch the sicko churches that refuse to teach the Bible or change according to God's clear teachings of Scripture. Your earthy experience here is too brief for you to be led around by Mr Lu-Cifer and by the lost, dead, blind people, corrupted religious leaders or fools? Be led by God’s Spirit who is HOLY.

Truest Love is genuine and has already won. Calvary was not in vain, and Christ will triumph over all. So "why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God." Psalm 43:5

America needs God more than God needs America. 

Is there spiritual compromise in your life today? Simply.. turn to Jesus

Lord, help us by giving us Your anointing to pray earnestly alone and together as a nation! 

Man, what's started out here in the USA as freedom of pure religion, is becoming freedom from pure religion.. I mean real relationship with God through Christ. Didn't we ditch dead religion and the trouble with it in old England?

The ultimate solution here is a biblical revival. Meaning here.. restored real to it's original authentic condition. It's time for it. Let it start with us. Why? Ginormous need.

"For they sow the wind And they reap the whirlwind." Hosea 8:7

"Jesus used the institution of marriage as a picture of His love for the church and our love for Him. This gives us an opportunity to let our light shine and show the watching world a beautiful example of a good and loving marriage. Have we done that? Even as Christians, have we done as good of a job as we can with marriage? Marriage is a big deal to God. He thought of it, created it, blesses it and uses it as a picture to a lost world. The Bible tells husbands to love their wives as Christ loves the church. It’s as though Jesus is saying, 'See how that husband loves his wife? That’s how I love the church!' In the final chapter of Revelation, the church is pictured as the bride. Your marriage should be a testimony and example to nonbelievers watching. Nonbelievers should see it as an example of God’s love for them. When as Christians we break up our marriages for no biblical reason, divorce, marry another, and commit adultery, do we not undermine marriage? Resolve your conflicts, forgive one another, and move forward! Don’t tell me about your 'irreconcilable differences.'" ~ Greg Laurie

"If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under." ~ Ronald Reagan

“The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration...The time is come- it is now- when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship. America's future depends upon her accepting and demonstrating God's government.” ~ Peter Marshall 

Hey, don't stubbornly be a superior elitist know-it-all independent of the Lord. That won't help you or anyone. There's better choices for you. Dumb laws that go against the Scriptures have been made many times before by dumb men, but Christians must be wiser and obey God rather than men. Here are some more verses to study. Go check the Greek and Hebrew if you like, go check these verses in their own context--see what the rest of the Bible says on this stuff too.

Leviticus 18:22 - Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 nkjv - Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

Romans 13:8-10 - Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 

John 8:7-11 - So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 

James 4:12 - There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

Galatians 5:14 - For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Isaiah 56:3-5 - Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, the LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, behold, I am a dry tree. 

Romans 1:24-27 - Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves...

Matthew 22:39 - And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Mark 10:6-9 - But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

Leviticus 20:13 - If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

1 Timothy 1:8-11 - But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully...

Romans 1:26-27 - For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature...
