You Are Not Overlooked

You Are Not Overlooked.

You Are Not Overlooked

Once again I find I must make this writing personal in order to clearly make my point. You see, I know what it means to be overlooked. I have experienced that most of my life. In fact, I was told on many occasions that I was no good and that I would never amount to anything. Yes, I have been overlooked on many occasions as well. Now, don’t misunderstand. This is not always the case; it is just when I go to some churches and certain other functions. For instance, in the company of my Bishop many choose to turn their backs toward me even if the Bishop and I are conversing. Yes, that is just one way in which I have been overlooked. Still, God has not turned his back on me and speaks to me face-to-face.

In spite of all the heartache and pain I have come to realize that I have not been overlooked. Sure, this brief article might sound like it is about me. It is not. I just want those who seem disenfranchised and who are downcast to know that there is hope. You are not walking alone and have not been forgotten. In fact, the converse is true. You have Jesus on your side as long as you are walking upright. After all God honours the upright heart. No, don’t you dare fret and you had better not give in. You have not been forgotten and you have not been overlooked. Be comforted in the fact that God will never leave you nor will He forsake you. You are the apple of His eye.

Even though I have been through some difficult times those times did not destroy me. I suspect the same is true of all that read this. Yes, there have been tears. There has been immeasurable pain. Some may have even considered suicide. Some may be considering suicide even now. Well, don’t you do it! Don’t you dare harm yourself! You are loved and you have not overlooked. God has a plan for your life and that plan includes good and not evil. So, as Charlotte the spider would say, chin up!

If truth be told I am not a nobody. I am somebody and have grown into and am continuing to grow into what God would have me to be. Neither are you a nobody. You are a child of the Most High. You are the head and not the tail. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and an heir of God and joint heir of Christ. You are somebody and have not been overlooked. You are somebody so I would encourage you to no longer walk in the yoke of bondage which seeks to cause you despair. Instead, walk in the liberty wherein Christ has made you free. You are somebody and have not been overlooked!

On Role Models

In light of what is going on with Bill Cosby I thought I’d reblog this.

There is no big secret concerning the fact that I am not a fan of sports. In fact many that know me will quickly let you know that if I never saw another football, baseball, basketball or anything of the like my life would not be moved one way or the other. This is not to say that I am not concerned about some issues that surround sports and the athletes that make sports so popular. One thing that is ever present is the idea that sports figures serve as role models for much of the country. While there is little doubt that many of these athletes are wonderful and upstanding people I am not certain that I would hold any of them to the level of role model for me or those that I so care about.

I recall not long ago I was invited to an event in…

Freedom by Two Documents

     Looking back at history it becomes extremely evident that many of our predecessors lived under the hand of certain slavery. While not all the slavery had to do with limitations imposed by man there was certainly slavery that limited mankind. Consider for a moment the bondage Adam found himself in. His decision to disobey God placed him in rather precarious situation. On one hand he was immediately inundated with a lot of knowledge but Adam became bound by that knowledge because the realization of sin became the centerpiece of his limited understanding.

     It was always God’s desire that man be free of sin but disobedience caused man to be enslaved by sin. God would not be deterred by man’s rebellion but rather he put in place a plan that would free man from the destruction of sin. With that God used about forty men over the period of…

Gonna Keep on Preaching

Gonna Keep on Preaching.

Gonna Keep on Preaching

The fact is that some things going on in this country are rather disheartening. Right has become wrong and wrong has become right. Those of us who stand for righteousness are called everything except the children of God. The ungodly are getting louder and louder as institutions such as the Supreme Court provide license to ventures that God has called an abomination. With the lawlessness of the Supreme Court and the will of some to tear at the fabric of this nation it seems to me that those choosing righteousness and holiness need not kowtow to the moral decadents of the day. It is my hope that many will stand with me because I am gonna keep on preaching the Word of the Most High God.

A couple years ago I was told that I rail too much against homosexuality. I was preaching against the abomination in writing and behind the pulpit. I could see the agenda manifesting itself to what is now an acceptance of this act by many. The problem is that this acceptance of wrong is nothing new. For instance, lies have been accepted by many because to some lies can be protective. Well, the protective nature of lies has yet to be determined. The fact is that God is not One who takes well to lies and has declared that all liars shall have their place in the lake that burns with fire (Revelation 21:8). The interesting thing is the text states that “all” liars will have their part in lake of fire. Hence, I am compelled to and I am gonna keep preaching on the danger of lying.

The matter of lies does not hold a lot of steam insofar as political correctness goes. It seems that all know it is wrong and many choose to live a life of lies. Consider, for instance, Bruce Jenner (I’m about to get in trouble now). Here is a man of renown deciding that he is no longer a male rather he is a female. There is little doubt by those with just a little discernment that this man has been troubled for a number of years. There is hurt and pain hidden well below the cloak of his transgender disguise. God made him a wonderful man yet he decided that he would be bold and come out of the “closet” as a woman. He has been hailed as brave and heroic for such revelation. Unfortunately his hurt and pain are still there. This is not to mention the fact that his gender “change” smacks God in the face. This, at the very root, is uncleanness to which God is not pleased.

Now, the Supreme Court must be highlighted again. This time a look at the Affordable Care Act (what a misnomer) was placed before the Court. The questions surrounding subsidies was at hand. The plain language of the law was apparent yet the members of the Court decided the law did not mean what was plainly written. As such, the Court essentially rewrote the law. Dare I say, and I am no lawyer, it is not the job of the Court to rewrite law rather it is purposed to interpret law in light of the Constitution. This did not happen in the opinion of the majority.  Instead the Court decided what the intent was ignoring what was written. This is lawlessness at its core.

Now we have a country torn. There are some that have taken up arms against those with whom they disagree. Consider the murders most recently in South Carolina. There was no reason for this young man to kill except that his unfounded hatred began to control his actions. The problem is that he is not alone. Christians are targeted on many fronts and this seems ok in the eyes of some. However, if there is one word said against Islam all of a sudden the world is in turmoil. Well, I have not time to worry about the social nuances of the day. I have to uphold the Gospel no matter who is offended. While it is not my intention to offend anyone the Gospel is an offense to those who choose to live contrary to its standard. Yes, I’m gonna keep on preaching not just behind the pulpit but also in the life I live.

The word of God clearly says that homosexuality is wrong in both the Old and New Testaments. This does not matter to some though. After the Supreme Court’s opinion was made public there was some that took to dancing in the streets in celebration of this ungodly declaration. Well, another problem has arisen that many will not even touch. Well, I have no choice and I’m gonna keep on preaching. You see, Galatians 5:21 warns against revellings and things like unto it. Revelling is the drunken public celebrations of immorality. How many times have we seen homosexuals celebrate with little to no clothes on which would otherwise be counted as indecent? Well, enough is enough. I have had my fill of social issues of the day seeking to tell me what to preach and what not to preach.

I am gonna keep on preaching the Gospel no matter what is said. I have already had horrendous things said about me and all I have done is repeat the Scripture. Galatians goes on to show that those that celebrate a number of offenses will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Those are not my words rather the Word of the Holy Writ. I will not attempt to pacify nor will I seek to appease. I have been called to preach the Gospel without compromise and as such I’m gonna keep on preaching. Is there anybody preaching with me?

And the two shall become one

Thank you for standing firm on the teachings of the Most High!

No matter how much man desires to redefine marriage to fit their agenda, God laid out the reasoning for marriage. And it is impossible for two people of the same sex to ever meet that definition. Marriage is a joining with a possibility and probability of a living outcome. Science is something that those who promote gay marriage, continually complain that Christians deny. And yet here they are the ones perverting science in order that they may feed their desires.

Matthew 19:4-10 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? “So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not…
