Women, Know Your Worth! If He Will Cheat With You, He Will Cheat On You! 7-30-13

I just recently had the opportunity to observe some women at a company where I was working. One woman in particular, stood out. On certain days of the week, she would wear provocative clothing. At first I didn’t catch on, but as the weeks went by, I noticed that on the days she dressed provocatively, she was dressing for her “secret lover”, a particular male employee who only came to our location on those days. They were having an affair! “That’s not bad”, you say. Well this woman is MARRIED! Her husband comes to the job site and visits and when he is about to leave, they have this big PDA (public display of affection). They tell each other “I love you” and then as soon as the husband leaves, she would run back over to her secret lover and they would kiss ~ right in front of the other employees. She seemed oblivious to the fact that her co-workers were disgusted by her actions.

This woman does not know her worth and neither does the man whom she is having an affair with. What gets me is that the lover knows the husband but yet and still, he goes behind this man’s back and lays with his wife. 

This woman, as beautiful as she is, had three violations:
#1 She violated one of the items in the employee handbook which clearly states that there shall be no sexual contact between employees while at work and it is strongly suggested that sexual relationships be avoided altogether.

#2 She violated her marriage vows. I don’t know if her husband is having an affair or not. What I do know is that she showed such PDA with her husband and then started kissing on another man as soon as her husband left the building. 

#3 She violated herself by lowering her self-respect. She didn’t care who knew she was having an affair with this man whom I consider less than a man because he knew she was married and knew who she was married to.

This woman, because of her lust, could have very well lost her job. I don’t know if that is in going to happen, but there have definitely been some changes at the job because of her behavior. Yes she still wears seductive clothes when her lover is at the site, but she no longer is allowed to sit with or near him during working hours.

Women, KNOW YOUR WORTH. If a man will cheat WITH you, chances are, he WILL CHEAT ON YOU!

The Little Foxes ~ Solomon 2:15

ImageThe Bible teaches us that the little foxes destroy the vine…Solomon 2:15. As believers or followers of JESUS CHRIST, it is important that we don’t let the little foxes (habits, attitudes, old mindsets) destroy our relationship with our Savior. We must take the necessary precautions to ensure that those little foxes don’t become big foxes. While little foxes may be cute, their destruction can be fatal.

JESUS said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for apart from me ye can do nothing.” John 15:5

I found an interesting article at http://www.eastbelmontfwb.org/study/foxes.htmthat I’d like to share:

Little Foxes that Spoil the Vines:
Song of Solomon 2:15

Intro: In this section of scripture it is talking about the vineyards, and the need for watching out for the foxes. Not just the foxes but the little foxes that spoil the vine. For the vines have tender grapes on them. This is speaking of the fruit we have in our Christian lives. And how the little foxes can destroy the vine that yield fruit. They do this by gnawing and breaking the little branches and leaves, and the bark, by digging holes in the vineyards, and so spoiling the roots, by eating the grapes, and any other way to hinder the growth of the vine.

Let us look at some Little Foxes that spoil the vine.

1. Bitterness of Soul; Hebrews 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

A. bitterness starts out small like a root then becomes a tree
B. bitterness is like a small sore, if picked at enough will become a large wound

2. Bickering of the Saints; 1Peter 2:1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,

A. bickering turns to arguing
B. arguing turns to separation

3. Boasting of Self; Proverbs 25:14 Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain.

A. boasting is like clouds and wind without rain there is no substance
B. boasting is a little fox that breeds pride

4. Bridling not the Speech; James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

A. this little fox has destroyed a lot of vines
B. don’t say what you think but think about what you are gong to say

5. Binding the Spirit; 1 Thessalonians 5:19 Quench not the Spirit.

A. each time you bind the spirit you yield yourself to sin
B. if you bind the spirit you will num to the things of God

6. Bargaining with Satan; Ephesians 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

A. the little bit of giving ground to the Devil
B. sometimes we bargain with Satan and don’t even realize we have

7. Barring the Savior; Revelation 3:20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

A. when we bind the spirit, and bargain with Satan, we are barring the Savior.
B. there are some places in our lives where we will not open up to Jesus and that little fox will keep us from growing and yielding fruit

Conclusion: It’s not always the big things in our lives that hinder us, but these little things (foxes) add up to make big problems in our walk with Christ. Are there some little foxes you need to take care of in your life?

So, let us consider if there are little foxes which are destroying the vine.

I Know GOD is Real

Some believe GOD is real
Some think HE’s no big deal.
Some think GOD is cool
And because I believe in HIM, some call me a fool.
Some ask me how 
I believe in a GOD I can’t see?
And my answer to them is
“I simply believe”.
Who or what 
made the air that we breathe?
Who or what
made the grass and the trees?
Who or what
made mankind?
Who or what
made rain and sunshine?
I don’t know what to tell you
Except I Know GOD is Real.
And believe it or not
To me, GOD’S the REAL DEAL!

NEVER SAY “NEVER”

Never say never
because the devil is clever.
Just when you think you will not
Is just when you find out you’ve been got.
The devil doesn’t come right out and attack
he waits patiently until he see’s you drifting from the pack.
Then he surrounds you like a roaring lion
Hoping you’re too weak to call on GOD from Zion.
But from somewhere inside You remember the Name
JESUS the Christ, and that’s how you overcame.

Once A Believer, Holiness Is NOT An Option

In this year of 2013, I find it alarming that a lot of people who are claiming to be Born Again Believers think it is OPTIONAL to live holy lives. Many seem to think that they can serve GOD on their terms, as if they are the Creator and GOD is the CREATED. It is time for a true, serious introspection.

GOD, throughout the Bible, talks about HIS people being HOLY. HE said, “Be Ye Holy” Why? “Because I AM HOLY”. There is no other explaination needed. Be Ye Because I AM.

I’ve had conversations with people and they tell me that Holiness doesn’t require self-denial. Holiness to some just means going to church on Sunday and/or whatever night Bible Study happens to be on. Some think that Holiness just means to abstain from certain activities but Holiness is a lifestyle. Holiness means to live a life that is pleasing to GOD. Holiness means to go against the grain, so to speak. To live holy means to love what GOD loves and to hate what GOD hates. Now I am not saying that we are to hate any group of people. Please be clear on that. What I AM saying is that if GOD speaks against it in the Bible, we should be against it, as believers. 
I know this is not a popular message, but HOLINESS, for the Believer, is NOT an option! It never was and it never shall be. 

GOD wants there to be a distinction between HIS people and the people who denounce HIM. There should be a difference in the way we look, talk, and live. We should be light to all darkness. We should be the right when wrong presents itself. We must be the good when evil is present. We must be the salt that seasons the world. 
The only way for a true believer to be holy is to understand what true holiness is. Holiness is not based on women wearing long dresses and wearing their hair in a bun. It is the condition of the heart. We obtain holiness by forging a relationship with the Creator through prayer and study of HIS WORD.
There are many out there who will think this post to be preposterous simply because they don’t believe the Bible. Some don’t even believe there is a GOD but I do! I believe because I have seen the power of GOD in my life. I have seen GOD do miracles for me and for others. I have seen and therefore I believe and because of that, I strive to live HOLY as unto the LORD. 
So, let us ponder this:
Once A Believer, HOLINESS IS NOT AN OPTION.

GOD BLESS YOU.
