Light on XXX, part 2

Love is NOT the technique…”

You really should read part 1 before jumping into part 2 so if you haven’t stop, click here for Part 1 Finished?? Let’s continue… 

How many of you, if you claim to be a Christian, would say I trust God 100%? Oh, don’t you realize you lying to yourself.  I had my brotha reveal this to me: “I trust Him like 100%. I just struggle with patience.” Unfortunately, logically, one can see having 100% trust in a situation wouldn’t lead to a struggle of patience. Now I’m not saying you or him or I don’t trust God, but it ain’t 100%. Part of us keep that secret area of our lives: past pain or struggle, that mother f-er that the simple thought of blank getting ran over tends to bring a smile to the mouth, a failure, a fear, a messed up relationship, etc.. you know your own secret area. We are afraid to shed God’s light and truth in that area. If you still not quiet sure of your secret area of not trusting God, what’s the one place or person you tend to think, “God, I got that situation or person figured out. You don’t have it. I got it.”?

You want to see a dude who had it hard read Jeremiah! I’m finally about to finish the book of Jeremiah and I mean what a unbelievable task God set infront of him. God says go and warn my foolish nation. Takes Jeremiah a hot minute tho to actually go and speak, Jeremiah Ch. 1, but Jeremiah goes and speaks. Israel doesn’t listen and actually insults, beats and imprisons him, but God continuously instructs Jeremiah to speak out and warn His people. If they heed the warning and obey God then they will be saved and spared from the Babylonians and exiled!! Check this out, Jeremiah 40:2-5: [Context Babylonians already invaded Judah and Israel. They sacked and burned the city and slaughtered the kings and officials. Shoot, the Israelites are being hauled off to captivity.] 

“The captain of the guard took Jeremiah and said to him, “The Lord your God pronounced this disaster against this place. The Lord has brought it about, and has done as he said. Because you sinned against the Lord and did not obey his voice, this thing has come upon you. Now, behold, I release you today from the chains on your hands. If it seems good to you to come with me to Babylon, come, and I will look after you well, but if it seems wrong to you to come with me to Babylon, do not come. See, the whole land is before you; go wherever you think it good and right to go. If you remain, then return to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon appointed governor of the cities of Judah, and dwell with him among the people. Or go wherever you think it right to go.” So the captain of the guard gave him an allowance of food and a present, and let him go.”

Don’t be thinking, ‘what a piece of **** God can be’. You got to read all of Jeremiah to know He forewarned, constantly delivered, and Israel continued to turn toward their own desires, but that’s a topic for another time. What’s amazing is the captain of the invading guard sees who God is!! God was able to make His name known even among the invaders and through this captain, I’m stating my opinion here, grasping the truth who the Lord is and setting His[God’s] servant free. Now anytime we see scripture it’s eternal and has relativity to our current days applied right, and look: “I release you today from the chains on your hands”. In Jeremiah we see foreshadow what Christ will and has done!! Christ himself by dying and resurrecting has released you from your chains.

We know that our old self was crucified with him[Christ] in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin.”Romans 6:6-7

How’s this a Part 2?? Let’s say this is your secret area you can’t trust God in but really though, probably one of many. I got to take a reason for secrecy I hear so often and poke fun of it:  “I can’t be honest with them. They know me as the leader of the: church, community group, life group, or organization.” Please. You and I got to take seriously sin especially this one!! If you a follower of Christ, don’t take my word for it, look how He wants you to view it: Matthew 5:27-30 It ain’t on our own volition you and I going to stop it. I mean I don’t know about you but it’s not like I roll out of bed and automatically go, “hmmm, pure thoughts.” hahaha don’t get me started while I’m at the gym.

I understand it’s scary to open up to a friend and here’s some great excuses:

  • ‘Dawg, he is going to judge me.’
  • ‘You don’t know them like I do. I will look weak infront of whomever you can’t tell.’
  • ‘She believes I have this under control. If I admit to my wife I use it then I got to face the fact I cheated on her with a phone and it’s gonna destroy her’

Keep this shit dormant it’s not only eating at you, but will continually get worse. If it’s got as bad as you using, sex, a sex hotline, strip clubs, escorts, etc.. There is help and don’t wait until it gets THAT BAD! Click now Start the path to healing and walking away from a never satisfying parasite that for now is just beating and flicking the “itch” to one day you saying, “How could I? Why I do that?” Turn around and run to Jesus.

Why Jesus? Don’t check out, stick with me:

For ALL (All humans: Me. You. Muslims. President Trump. Mary the mother of God. ALL HUMANS) have sinned and fall short of the glory of God — Romans 3:23

For although they[talking about us humans] knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. — Romans 1:21-23

For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it. For He[God] who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. — James 2:10-11

Duh..Duh..Duh..Duhhhh

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. — John 3:16

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit,-1 Peter 3:18

Before I bid you adieu, I must clarify that scripture, His words, will convict you. Listen breaking addictions is not our own doing. If you feel you addicted and I mean to whatever. Reply to me. I been there before. I can attest freedom is possible. I will be free from this struggle of porn and masturbation. It’s only possible to be overcome through His spirit. How does one listen and respond to His spirit?

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
