The Nobody’s Perfect Club – Unlimited Excuses Part 1

The longer I live the more I realize how utterly important it is to develop an intimate personal relationship with the Lord. I have learned that when a teller is trained in the banking industry they are taught how to recognize the authenticity of currency. Therefore whenever a counterfeit bill is passed they are able to recognize it.

 

“Nobody’s Perfect Club!”

 

You want to know how to recognize and hear the voice of the LORD! 

We live in a real world that is full of systems of deception created to distract us from the genuine purpose of life. Our life purpose is to glorify GOD ALMIGHTY.  Without the Holy Spirit as your navigator you will get towed right along.   This deception has further infiltrated the Church. It beckons those who are willing to make excuses for their shortcomings, to excuse self-gratification as a mere attribute to mankind’s imperfections. To immorally satisfy the carnal appetite to all who are willing to submit to the, well; “Nobody’s Perfect Club.” 

 

This will only  erroneously teach you although, “the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof;”  He doesn’t really know how to bless His children. Why is that? Because He intends for them to stay dependent on anything and everybody until they leave this world. Although they don’t believe blessings are just material, actual spiritual growth and development are optional. I warn you this will only enslave you to a life dependent upon sin.

 

God really has given us many liberties.  Know there are consequences for our choices. 

 

We really often miss the point. You see God doesn’t force us.  He allows us all the freedom to choose. Instead many often choose to justify living a life were sin abounds. This gives us unlimited privileges in the “Nobody’s Perfect Club.” He did not make us to be robots. It is time out for playing games…   

 

We are to daily  grow in His grace and sin  less.   Not simply  make excuses. These are some very serious; “Perilous Last days!”  Yes, He does still intend for us to respect Him as Father and Lord within our daily lives. Not in a legalistic manner. We serve an Omnipresent, Omnipotent  Almighty GOD! He wants us to enjoy healthy fulfilling  well rounded lives! Remember always;  “the earth is the LORD’S and the fullness thereof the world and them that dwell within it.  For He has founded it upon the seas, and established t upon the floods…” Psalm 24

 

Ministry must go beyond the walls!

 

The “Nobody’s perfect club” allows easy access to unlimited excuses. It has a plethora of earthly benefits. You can live any way you want, say anything you want, little or no study required. Listening to an occasional lecture or message may be required to help you with attendance kudos. Or just reading a few scriptures.  Listening not required just say amen when it gets too quiet. Just show up on Sunday? And act as you are happy? This Guarantees access to many  carnal fringe benefits I prefer not to mention. You may even receive a B.A. (born again) if you don’t rock the boat.  Come as you are and possibly stay as you are?  And yes your name placed on the membership role. You see we are saved by grace. That gives you a license to indulge yourself. After all “Nobody’s perfect.”

 

One caution, you may be persecuted or covertly disfellowshipped if you genuinely decide to “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the WORD of TRUTH.  But shun profane and vain babblings; for they will increase unto more ungodliness. “  II Timothy 2  Why? Because you are trying to be too perfect.

 

Please if you have truly accepted “Christ as your personal Savior” allow Him to really work within you and actually become  an integral part of your daily  life.  Allow Him to activate His Holy Spirit within your life.  HE CAN CLEANSE YOU FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS…  You can be content, happy and fulfilled in the Lord.  He can and will make a marvelous difference within your life. And also make spiritual deposits to your eternal account that will  yield a harvest of marvelous  spiritual, physical, and an endless array of marvelous blessings.

 

Accept Christ Jesus into your heart

If you have not accepted JESUS as your SAVIOR & LORD; please DO,  “ACCEPT HIM NOW!”  Truly and earnestly  ask JESUS into your heart and life this very moment. Ask Him to forgive you for your sins because you want to make a  FRESH START!   You want to sincerely  REPENT!!!  (Meaning; COMMIT to  turn from your ways and the ways of  the world and turn your life over to GOD!)  &  SAY YES to GOD!!!  Because;  You really do want to change and   sincerely commit your life to GOD! 

 

I assure you it will be a marvelous journey like no other. If you have grown slack in your commitment; (to GOD’s principles activated in your life) it is time to recommit! Getting serious has its price. So, I must warn you. There is a serious battle ahead of you.  When you do, it is important to know and expect, when you do this a lot of spiritual warfare will be launched against you as well as your family. It wants to discourage you and make you conform.  But PRAISE GOD it is truly worth it!

 

GOD begins to manifest the Fruit of HIS SPIRIT within you. Spiritual strength grows as you grow up and exercise your FAITH & TRUST in the LORD! 

 

There is much spiritual warfare that happens  even in the midst of worship 

 

GOD created us to live a life pleasing in His sight.  It is important to “Worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth!”   Yet know it can get interesting at times.  Be ready, for a lot goes on during worship.   Some people will step over you,  talk over you and yes be down right rude.   They can be quite territorial.   Life is not a movie and Church is not a scene. Although it’s full of actors, it’s serious business. Things are not always as they appear. It is important to know we the people are GOD’S CHURCH! HEAVEN is HIS THRONE and the earth is HIS footstool!  Be ready!  Because; yes, you are in for some surprises. Don’t believe everything you hear. 

 

There are many facets to a  story so make sure you have the facts before you assume something is true.   When in doubt  pray and seek the Lord’s direction.   I have seen relationionships go awry based on error… Some will say and do just about anything.  Be willing to take responsiblity for whatever you say and or do.  There is always a possiblity you will be misunderstood.    In the midst of spiritual warfare there are many fiery darts that come forth.  But praise be to GOD for HIS breastplate of righteousness.  Also know many also have selective memories.

 

Always know it is the “Truth that will set you Free!” 

 

Seek to believe the TRUTH!  God holds each of us accountable for what we know.   PRAY FOR DISCERNMENT! Please bear with me. You see I have been in Church all my life. ABBA FATHER, continues to grow me up  in His grace, knowledge understanding and wisdom… HIS astounding ETERNAL LOVE is glorious!  If this is not where you are you have no need to be offended. 

 

Life is precious. “GOD IS not a respecter of persons!” Each day is an opportunity  to grow in the wisdom and knowledge of the Lord.  We can  reap and enjoy  all these marvelous  spiritual  benefits.  Come what may,  it is your choice.  As you mature in the Lord you become increasingly aware that He is absolutely aware of your motives, actions and intents.  Therefore you don’t indulge in the mental games.  Your responses are not hasty but intentional.  Your desire is to facilitate and encourage genuine spiritual growth to help  mature the Body of Christ. You know that we have as children of God  a responsibility to give our omnipresent  Heavenly Father Honor!  “We are to be in the world but not of the world…”   To encourage, admonish and correct  one another with the Word in a healthy manner. As well as embrace it daily and live it out  in front of non believers as well. To get to know God and develop a personal ongoing intimate relationship with Him through Christ Jesus.

 

 For  we have committed to be  HIS people!

The Nobody’s Perfect club – Unlimited Excuses Part 2

Seek GOD first  before everything!

GOD really is omniscient! I still can’t quite grasp why many really don’t believe. God really does hear all and see all we do.  That includes absolutely ALL OF US, everywhere all over the world! If we did, it would eliminate a lot of the charades and manipulations and cliques. GOD IS REAL!

GOD has only ONE CHURCH!

Remember, “seeking first His kingdom and His righteousness… “ will really add all you need in this life. But always know you can not manipulate God. He is not like a genie. Yes, He is Omnipresent. But He is not at our every beckon call. He does not answer or respond at our command. We are all beneath HIM…. Remember earth is HIS footstool. It should be our desire for His Will to be accomplished within each of us. We are all; at His mercy! And yes, He knows when we are truly seeking Him first. 

God is patient loving and kind… He is also a God of wrath. He is giving HIS CHURCH and this world time to get itself together. CHRIST JESUS really is coming back for “HIS CHURCH without spot or wrinkle. We are supposed to live as though we are expecting JESUS to return at any time? In this we can be confident. Many Believers as well as unbelievers are transitioning out of this world daily. You as a believer can be certain of your final destination.

Get right with GOD!

Those of us who still remain when Jesus returns will be caught up to meet Him in the air. “For this we say unto you by the Word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, and the voice of the archangel and the trump of GOD and the dead in CHRIST shall rise first. Then we which are alive shall be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. I Thessalonians 4.

GOD really does have us all and everything under His control. What do you mean? He is our sovereign Lord! Almighty God is omnipotent! Absolutely nothing anywhere in this world gets by Him. Not one miniscule single iota. Remember everything was spoken into existence through Christ Jesus! Above Him is no other. He has given us countless examples.

The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew is a wonderful example. It really does contains a wealth of knowledge. Jesus discusses a multiplicity of issues here.  He deals with being Blessed, life, sin, death, persecution, taking oaths, adultery, divorce, enemies and so much more….  You will find that these same issues are prevalent today. Ponder all the marvelous blessings here! “The TRUTH will set you free. “Blessed are…” Take some time and read and digest  this in Matthew 5. 

Know GOD and HIS WORD for yourself!

The WORD of God contains precious invaluable instructions. We need the valid honest authentic no nonsense spiritual training found in His Word.  For His Word  gives us marvelous examples to help us from falling prey to non-biblical unspiritual teachings. It even tells how the “Blood of Jesus” can cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  God has given us His Holy Spirit as an excellent  guide and teacher to lead us to all TRUTH! His Holy Spirit is our Comforter, to lead us to all TRUTH!

The majority in HIS Church are you and Christ Jesus. He is the; “Head of His Church!” If you don’t stand for Jesus you will fall for anything. Know GOD and HIS WORD for yourself! His WORD will equip you to better discern truth from error. Remember that bank currency I talked about. Jesus stresses the importance of God’s way being the best way.

You can be or become PERFECT in the LORD! 

Don’t allow anyone to make withdrawals from your spiritual account. (By the way nobody is perfect in the normal sense. ) “For it is in HIM we live and move and have our being…”  Acts 17 But don’t forget. The Bible is not talking about flawlessness, It is talking about being PERFECT (meaning COMPLETE) in our LORD &  CHRIST  JESUS! “Be ye therefore PERFECT,   even as YOUR FATHER which is in Heaven is PERFECT!”  Matthew 5 God would not tell us to do something that we are unable to do.  Learn how to control your tongue! Apostle Peter and all the Apostles all teach adamantly;  “We ought to OBEY GOD rather than Man /Woman.” Acts 4

Give God His place within your life. RESET your thinking and REPENT! “PRAY without ceasing” and take PRAISE BREAKS; all throughout your day. This is how you stay connected to the Lord!

THANK YOU ABBA FATHER for YOUR MARVELOUS HOLY SPIRIT & COMFORTER. Know that nothing or no one can separate you from the LOVE of GOD unless you allow it.

Becoming perfect in the Lord is possible…”  ABBA FATHER, THANK YOU for  the making us PERFECT IN YOU! “These are important things to know and holdfast. It is an ever growing spiritual process. We are, “forever becoming” unto the Lord calls us home.   Each day we have the opportunity to grow in GOD’S genuine endless eternal love and grace… The POWER of THE WONDER WORKING BLOOD  of CHRIST JESUS  yields invaluable spiritual dividends for those who learn to earnestly CALL  and TRUST HIM as SAVIOR and LORD.

Oh what a wonderful SAVIOR!

What’s a Savior? Oh! He helps us from allowing  the power of sin to rule within our daily lives. He continuously shapes and molds us in His image.  He loves us, forgives us and strengthens us as we faithfully digest, embrace and implement HIS WORD within our lives each day.   He walks  & talks with us and keeps on the Narrow Path that leads to Eternal Life in Heaven. In the LORD you can be confident.  

There is power in being obedient to God. Meekness is power under control. God is omnipotent! And therfore we access power through His Holy Spirit to do His will. We never become the power. This is why we all need Christ Jesus.

Spend quality one on one time with the Lord in HIS WORD. Your life truly can be transformed through Christ Jesus. You will live and think differently. GOD will never leave nor forsake us. He also keeps all His promises. He can impute His righteousness to you. He can save you by HIS grace!

“WHAT A FRIEND!”

CHRIST JESUS is a FRIEND like no other! None can compare.

Let nothing separate you from HIS LOVE! Get busy discovering that having God in your life is really is all about. GOD brings purpose to our lives everyday. God is forever faithful! Know without doubt in these perilous last days;  “JESUS CHRIST IS THE WAY THE TRUH AND THE LIFE!”  So, don’t relinquish the spiritual deposits only God can provide, for membership in the “Nobody’s perfect club.” Don’t follow the crowd.

Finally brethren farewell, BE PERFECT, Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace, and the GOD Of PEACE shall be with you…”  II Corinthians 14

 

GOD’S WORD is our necessary essential spiritual food for our mind, body & souls. Each day is a day to get better and be better. Praise and thank God for each day is a precious Gift from HIM. God will never tell us to do anything that goes against HIS WORD. May you rise each morning to hear GOD’S VOICE within your heart!

Strive and thrive daily to become “PERFECT” in the LORD! 

ABBA FATHER, WE DAILY RISE TO BLESS & THANK YOUR HOLY & DIVINE NAME. YOUR KINGDOM COME YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH A IT IS IN HEAVEN! THANK YOU FOR OUR DAILY BREAD YOUR LIVING WORD!

For this we can rejoice and say; “THANK YOU HALLLLELLLUJAH!!! ”
