Following sheep or wolves?

The Great Commission and The Greatest Commandment are what followers of Jesus Christ are called– to do-go/tell & show people about God’s LOVE, that they are loved by God-for us to love.
The church is not called to build the largest of facilities, come up with rules, programs and guidelines, but to go, teach, and love!
Too many are so concerned with order, rules, and mandates, they miss the main thing: God is LOVE!
LOVE isn’t about being so self or program absorbed, that you fail to love on everyone you see, pass, or those you don’t see because of self absorption or love on because they aren’t those you want on your team or choose not to join join team.
God doesn’t want sides; HE wants LOVE!

All the knowledge, money, numbers, and things of this world will not matter when Christ returns or the death angel comes.

Be encouragers, show love, and be God led.

If something looks so wonderful, ask yourself if God is really in it? Are the ones in it happy? Are they doing it because they really want to do it or are they just following the leader?

If you’re a follower of an individual(s), ask yourself do you see God (LOVE) in their way of achieving their goals? Is (LOVE) God’s presence felt? Is it about numbers? Is it about money??? Is it about property???? When you hear about the giving, is it to let others know about something awesome taking place or is this person seeking high self esteem or be seen superior to you?? Are they truly engaged or are they letting others do the work for them???
Is it about God being a difference in the lives of others or is it about being seen, heard, or being seen/held in high esteem placing high value upon themselves or having you placing high value on them??????

All the education and money in the world cannot replace a personal relationship with God.

If a person doesn’t have that love relationship with God, they’ll not have a love relationship with you, others, nor will their goals, disposition, or life reflect LOVE nor in the end of their projects or activities will it be about LOVE for others; it will be all about and for themselves. We were taught as children, we are judged by the company we keep; it’s true even as adults.
The light will always be revealed in time, even if it’s too late. In the fruition of what they bring to the future, will you be the one asking yourself, what was I thinking?
Have you wondered why some in the game are no longer players in the game? Once eyes are opened and God does open the eyes of those who have a relationship with Him, but it’s in HIS timing, when HE feels you’re ready to see, hear, listen, and act upon what He already knows. He often reveals puzzle pieces, one at a time.

Most of us are not wanting to believe we could be blinded, be jilted, or used as we are intelligent beings nor realizing schemers and chess players exist, go to such extreme means and given time to such details to bring personal goals to fruition. Who has time, energy, or money to even go to such length?? The one who never has anything to lose. The one who has had practice in doing what they are doing. Often the intelligent, well known, compassionate doers and helpers don’t know til they’re tossed to aside, sit back removing themselves so able to digest life as it’s happening, analyze the players in the game(s), analyze the puzzle pieces that pop up out of the blue, and why things are being allowed. Once the analysis is done, a scary scary outcome can be seen. Knowledge is tough! Do you sit back watching and waiting for the final ball to drop @ the buzzer that will change the life of so many? Or do you open the eyes of people caught within the playing arena? God reveal how you want the players still in the game to find out, how you want them to react, and if they’re to remain in the game teach them to be highly skilled in the game of chess. Unlike a chess game for fun, lives of the present and the future are at stake. The stakes are high!

Hindsight is 20/20.

Be in God’s game!!!!!!!
Be about godly love. LOVE!
Be about the Great Commission and the Great Commandment.
If you are about these two principles (commandments), the rest will fall into place.

We are none perfect and none are without sin. God knows our hearts and minds. He knows all. Sees all. Mistakes will be made. Be sure the mistakes you make are your own mistakes, and not the mistakes of a schemer or a great chess player.

Often in life, we get one chance to get it right. Other times, our God of grace and hope, gives us opportunities to get it right!

Whose team are you playing on?
If you’re playing on God’s teams, it doesn’t matter which team you’re on. It doesn’t matter who wins, get credit, as everyone is loving, sharing, compassionate, and helping others out of LOVE!

But woe, to be on a chosen team that’s excluding Him or who has a personally stacked team.

God began His ministry in “home style churches”, not churches and buildings of man-made rules. Rules are of man. LOVE, RESPECT, & PEACE is of GOD.
God isn’t denominational.
It’s wonderful when community events take place when it’s for a God purpose, God driven, and yes, even non-denominational, God’s people and HIS CHURCH coming together to SERVE others including the UNCHURCHED & UNREACHED!

If God isn’t in it, watch out!

Hindsight will be a tough pill to swallow, not just for yourself, but for others following you. God doesn’t call for people to be led as a puppet on a string nor will He stop you from selfish personal goals or make you stop following the leader or following those with the purse strings or seemingly endless deep pockets .
These pockets often didn’t become deep through God driven means or actions.

God calls His children to study, listen for His voice, follow Him, and LOVE others. If an individual is rude, disrespectful, following only their game plan, welcoming and inviting only players they know people others will stop & listen, BEWARE. These chosen players are blinded to the ulterior motive of the leader, only knowing about the one cause they’re chosen to participate.

Whoa are they when they find out they’ve been duped for their prestige and followers as the trust and confidence others have could dwindle drastically causing a loss of wealth, friends, and all you’ve worked hard to obtain in your professional and private life.

If God’s in it, great things will come from the seeds planted and watered. We ALL need to think before we jump into the game plan or on the train(s) of others. If someone is offering you something of great value companies aren’t offering, there’s a reason! If someone is offering to have your back, scratch my back I’ll scratch yours, or offer to pay off a debt, oh you better really watch out!
Often the train or team is stacked for a reason, unknowingly of the reason(s) the players were chosen.

Remember, there is NO FREE LUNCH! Someone ALWAYS pays the price! Many times, it is paid by the taxpayers in the form of grants, taxation, and/or higher utilities. Every action or entity comes with a cost. Have you been convinced to participate in something and in just a few months you were left holding the cost?? Do you think it happened unintentionally? Or could it had been through the game of high rollers at your expense for a purpose you haven’t seen or as your eyes are now being opened???

Christ paid the ultimate cost for each of us having been nailed upon an old cross (a tree)!

Beware of the one who comes wearing sheep clothing into your life or in your presence in organizations, as they are planting themselves strategically, just waiting out their time to “devour” you and all established by you and your forefathers. What you have always known will be changed in front of your very eyes to the point the clothed sheep is the only one happy and pleased in the end. Think. Pray. Pray.
God is LOVE! LOVE!!!!!
I’ve been told by many, MONEY IS POWER & MONEY TALKS! Money may talk, but GOD holds eternity.

Which team will you feed? Which team will you support?
Which team or train do you need to jump while there’s still time? Who do you need to share the knowledge you have? Who are people you need to share the puzzle pieces you hold in your hand? Who do you need to share the possibilities of the puzzle pieces you know about or hold in the palm of your hands??

God will reveal the evil one(S) if we all fall upon our face, asking Him for discernment and guidance. Time is fleeting. Time is NOW. Hindsight on some things can’t be changed. The knowledge obtained through hindsight can halt evil if compassionate individuals join together standing firmly together in the battle.
Wolves come in sheep clothing. Snakes leave and return. They shed their skin multiple times.

MAY FAITH & DISCERNMENT BE GRANTED BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

The parallels of church and non church entities are to help the thought process of everyday life. We are all in some way touched by the church, by the unchurched, by sheep, wolves, and snakes. Satan is alive and well in the hearts of many. God is a God of allowing choices-good and bad. They exist amongst us in every area of life.
The sad sad part, the ones who are affected the most by the choices of others have no earthly idea of what’s taking place around them and will be the most affected. See, some will lose money, their character, and can move away. It’s the ones with no voice or in the playing arenas, who have no where to go.

Having been caught in the snare of the evil ones is no shame. Remaining quiet about it and not using your knowledge of it, and not stepping up to the plate stronger to help is something to personally have to answer.

To help people you must use your life’s experiences to give them that knowledge from making similar mistakes with the same individual.

Sitting back, watching, and waiting for the final ball to drop is like walking through a field of dynamite. Life when the foot hits the dynamite will be forever changed.

Knowledge, not money is power! Time is of the essence. Don’t live with the regrets of something you could have helped stop.
It’s not all about the moment at hand, it’s the future.

Choose to be in the game!
