Live Above The Deceitfulness and Pleasures of Sin

Sin is very deceitful and can seem like the right way. It can feel good and give pleasure, but at the end brings great destruction to the lover of sin.

Proverbs 14:12

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Example

  1. David. When David was looking at Bathsheba, another man’s wife, it gave him pleasure but it was a pleasure that had been poisoned by death but at that point in time, He did not care. Emotion had taken over the voice of reason. Immediately he saw her bathing, and unclothed, he should have torn his eyes away because she was married. Also, she was not his wife. God does not want us to entertain ungodly desires and cravings. No, need to admire and lust after a married woman or someone that we are not married to. Emotion overpowered David. Later, he took the pleasure to another level and committed adultery. Remember that Jesus said 

But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:28

God later passed judgement on David, and death came to his doorstep. Wining and dining with sin, is sleeping with death and fellowship with the grave.

  • Samson. Samson had a great destiny and anointing from birth, but he lost focus. He fell in love and lost his senses, and emotion overpowered logic, reason and God’s will. Never lose focus.

Lesson to learn

The devils tries to derail us and our destinies by introducing ungodly pleasures that can seem irresistible. If we are focused and determined to love God at all cost, we will overcome harsh temptations and fulfil destiny.

Jesus was tempted. There were so many things around Jesus that could have enticed Him and derailed Him if He was not focused. He set His heart on loving God and experiencing God’s glory and anointing daily.

The anointing is not cheap, and we must pay the price. The anointing is not for those who fall in love foolishly and indiscriminately without caution. Most of the time, what people call falling in love is falling in lust for a season and later when the so-called love clears from their eyes, they end up hating each other with passion. This proves that it was never falling in love, but emotionalism and sacrificing logic, clear thoughts and reason.

The only reasonable love is falling in love with your wife or husband. But try to make sure that that wife is God ordained. Some people have married other peoples spouses and ended up in divorce and great sorrow. Some even lost their lives. People have married their enemies.

The goal of our Christian experience is to live in God’s perfect will, and experience His glory, daily. For us to achieve this, we need to overcome temptations and distractions. Some men and women have been, and will still be introduced into your life to tempt you, derail you and hijack your destiny.

Determine now, to overcome and pray to God that your faith will not fail you. Also pray that not to be led into temptation. Reject the pleasures of sin and realise that they are deceptions from the Devil to make you fall.

Delilah was a deception and a trap. She did not love Samson, but Samson was blinded by emotionalism and blind love. Blind love is a deception, and the will of God is the truth. The Lord spoke to me some days and said to me, “focus on commitment and not emotions. If you listen to your emotions they will overpower your commitment.”  Do not let emotions and illogical tendencies kill you or your destiny, You have no business falling in love, just for the sake of falling in love or falling in love to commit sin.

Fall in love with God’s will, and within God’s will, you will find your God ordained spouse that God prepared for you to help you fulfil destiny. In God’s perfect will, you will not find a Delilah that will sell you, betray you and kill you.

Reject ungodly pleasures and the pleasures of sin and embrace the perfect will of God.

Defeat Evil Thoughts Laura Bon

Evil thoughts will occur however, it is how we handle them that matters. Remember that Jesus said to Peter, " Get behind me Satan." Jesus was able to recognize that what Peter was saying originated from the devil. Peter himself was not even aware that he was passing across Satan’s thoughts. The devil always tries to make us disobey God and go against God’s will and His plan for our lives by flashing his own thoughts across our minds. Learn to recognize Satan’s thoughts the way that Jesus did, and aggressively reject them. 1. Know the word of God thoroughly like the Berean believers Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

The Affliction Of Being Unloved And How To Respond

Message about how to respond when you are experiencing the pain and affliction of rejection and being unloved.

Jacob Marries Leah and Rachel

After Jacob had stayed with him for a whole month, 15 Laban said to him, “Just because you are a relative of mine, should you work for me for nothing? Tell me what your wages should be.” 16 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. 17 Leah had weak[a] eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful. 18 Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, “I’ll work for you seven years in return for your younger daughter Rachel.” 19 Laban said, “It’s better that I give her to you than to some other man. Stay here with me.” 20 So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her. 21 Then Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my wife. My time is completed, and I want to make love to her.” 22 So Laban brought together all the people of the place and gave a feast. 23 But when evening came, he took his daughter Leah and brought her to Jacob, and Jacob made love to her. 24 And Laban gave his servant Zilpah to his daughter as her attendant. 25 When morning came, there was Leah! So Jacob said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? I served you for Rachel, didn’t I? Why have you deceived me?” 26 Laban replied, “It is not our custom here to give the younger daughter in marriage before the older one. 27 Finish this daughter’s bridal week; then we will give you the younger one also, in return for another seven years of work.” 28 And Jacob did so. He finished the week with Leah, and then Laban gave him his daughter Rachel to be his wife. 29 Laban gave his servant Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as her attendant. 30 Jacob made love to Rachel also, and his love for Rachel was greater than his love for Leah. And he worked for Laban another seven years. Jacob’s Children 31 When the Lord saw that Leah was not loved, he enabled her to conceive, but Rachel remained childless. 32 Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben,[b] for she said, “It is because the Lord has seen my misery. Surely my husband will love me now.” 33 She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, “Because the Lord heard that I am not loved, he gave me this one too.” So she named him Simeon.[c] 34 Again she conceived, and when she gave birth to a son she said, “Now at last my husband will become attached to me, because I have borne him three sons.” So he was named Levi.[d] 35 She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, “This time I will praise the Lord.” So she named him Judah.[e] Then she stopped having children.

I Don’t Care

Revelations, Visions and Messages 3

3. Lord, I am sorry I was angry today

For us to become mature Christians, we must get to the place of “I don’t care.” I don’t care will save you from bitterness, anger and revenge. I remember a long time ago,  a boy I knew so well, who was just four years old was being persuaded to fight back nastily against a female bully in his class.

This four year old boy gave so many reasons why he would not do so. He said he would get into trouble with his teacher, but he was still being persuaded to treat his bully the way his bully was treating him – Nasty. Finally, he screamed, I don’t care, I don’t care, it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter! I marvelled at this boys angelic nature.

This boy had super confidence and he was not going to change his nature because of a naughty four year old bully. Does it really matter? It does not matter and it does not matter who is right or wrong – we must stop anger, bitterness, ill-will, revenge and all manner of fighting.

Some people might ask if I am encouraging people to remain silent when bulled. No, I am not . I am simply saying that fighting back tit for tat and fighting dirty and competing with the super bully on who is the “bulliest” and “baddest.” is wrong and encourages revenge and ill-will. By the way I know that there is no word like bulliest and baddest. I am using the word baddest as a slang.

That boy is grown up now and he is a confident boy. That episode of bullying never changed him into a victim.

The key is to teach children and adults the importance of confidence and conflict resolution. Emotional intelligence is a great key to happiness and peace. They must also be taught interpersonal and coping skills. That way, they will not be traumatised. Children must also be encouraged to report bullies because some children are super sensitive and find it difficult to cope.

This post is not about bullying. I told a story to illustrate and emphasise a point. The point is we must try not to care too much about other people’s words and opinions when we do not have power as humans to control or change their behaviours and opinions.

When we care too much we loose power to the nasty. We must look inwards and up to God to be able to cope and react rationally to nastiness.

We must get to a place of complete resilience and mental toughness. I hope I don’t sound like I am boasting, but recently, I have noticed that I am never bothered by what people say to me, say about me, and do to me. I simply don’t care and I say it that I don’t care. I can’t be bothered. I even go out of my way to be nice to people who are nasty to me and I just don’t feel angry at them. I don’t care. However, I make sure I am not intimate with them.

The Lord taught me about the secret and principle of not being intimate with enemies or people who hate me or cause me to sin. I am not saying you should be sleeping with the enemy or wining, dining and dancing with the enemy – that does not fall under not caring, it is silliness. Jesus was never intimate with His enemies and the only enemy He was intimate with betrayed Him and sold Him and that led to His death. However, it had to happen so that the Scriptures would be fulfilled.

I am surprised that I am this way however, it is not by my own power. I spend hours everyday in the presence of God, so God is doing His work in me. He is the one that is sanctifying and purifying me. I just know that I don’t care about a lot of things that people cry and fight over.

Sometime ago, someone made me angry and I went to bed angry. The Lord took me in a trance to the first heaven to covert a human being who belongs to that kingdom in order to make her an Evangelist. I led her into the sinners prayer and I am waiting for her to repent. Everyone I have prayed for in visions, dreams and trances always became true believers.

As we were ascending up into the first heaven to enter into that kingdom, the first thing I said was, “Lord I am sorry I was angry today.” My anger had become a gap in our relationship and my Spirit apologised to the Lord before we could continue with the mission. When I came out of the trance I realised that when Paul advised us never to go to bed angry he was not joking. I realised that if we die with anger in our hearts, it is not good. God wants spotless purity and it is possible. He wants us to constantly put on our white garments. I am not perfect but I have realised that spending time in God’s presence helps to activate His cleansing, sanctifying presence.

May we all get to high levels of mental toughness and emotional intelligence and not care about irrelevant things. May God give us the grace to overlook insults and offences because our offenders are human and we too are human and not perfect.

Fools show their annoyance at once, but the prudent overlook an insult. Proverbs 12:16 NIV

When a fool is annoyed, he quickly lets it be known. Smart people will ignore an insult. Proverbs 12:16 Good news bible

A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted. Proverbs 12:16New Living Translation

A fool’s displeasure is known at once, but whoever ignores an insult is sensible. Proverbs 12:16 Holman Christian Translation

Taken

You were taken

By a vow

And a spirit

That I could not understand

Despite knowing

That we could never

Be together

I loved you

Like my own soul

I inhaled your spirit

Until obsession took over

When I realized the

Danger of obsession

I cut off

And went far away

To another land

Where I would

Never see you

However the scar

Had cut deeply

Into me

And all my dreams

Were about

Me by your graveside

Mourning the loss

Of your presence

The cords of obsession

Fought hard

To resist the resistance

I put up

As I realized that

I did not have the strength

To pull through

Because the more I fought

The more I fell apart

And became physically

Breathless

Because my heart

Refused to obey

My head and logic

I cried out to heaven

And I was saved

By the mercy of God

With one lesson

Etched deeply

On my mind

“Obsession is bad

For the soul,

Reject obsession

At its early stages

Before it sprouts

Horns and tails

And turns into

A destructive

Monster to the soul.”

My Own Happiness

As I climbed the Hill

At Rock-berry drive

I remembered Harry

My ex husband

So happy

So loved up

With His new family

I hissed

As I heard a loud scream

And I realized that

I had fallen

Because I did not see

The white stone

By the pathway

A tear slipped out if my tired eyes

As I struggled

To rise up

From the muddy path

I picked up

A gold colored

Dry leaf

And I made a silent vow

To myself

Never to remember

Happy Harry

And focus on myself

My life, my path and my way

In order to carve out

My own happiness

Lost Shadow

I followed you blindly

Like a cold, lost shadow

I thought it was loyalty

I thought it was devotion

I thought it was love

I followed you blindly

I lost my senses

And my dignity

In a relentlessly dark journey

Into the land of Obsession

I lived for you

My magnificent obsession

Until I realized

That I was your slave

Because

You had possessed

My spirit and soul

I lived for you

But not anymore

For I am free

Free to dance

Free to love

In a healthy way

Devoid of obsession

I lived for you

But now

I live for God

For myself

And others

In pure agape love

Protect Your Heart

Keep your heart with all diligence,

For out of it spring the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23 NKJV)

It’s so easy
To fall in love
But who are you
Really falling in
Love with
A mirage, fantasy or reality
Before you give
Your heart so easily
To another
Make sure the object
Of your affection
Loves you back
The heart is very
Special and priceless
And must not be
Given away so easily
To someone
Who will callously
Abuse it
And shatter it into
A million pieces

It makes no sense
To give your heart
To a fool
Treasure it and
Give it to the one
Who deserves it

I Know How It Hurts

Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you (Ephesians 4:31 – 4:32 NKJV)

I know how it hurts
Trust me, I know

When you are betrayed
By the very ones
Who should protect you
It feels worse than
A million arrows
To the soul
It breaks the heart
And Spirit

Child of mercy
Forget the pain
Forget the sorrow
I know how it hurts
But remember
That we are all human
Just remember
That the devil can use
Anyone to break
Our hearts
If they are not truly
Devoted to Christ
That one who broke
Your heart
Was simply under
The influence of evil
He was hypnotized
To break you

The Lord is bigger
The Lord is stronger
Forget the hurts
Bitterness and grievances
And forgive the offender
Who cruelty hurt you
Betrayed you and disappointed you
Love is stronger than death
And it is only in pure love
That we can see victory
Because no one can claim
To be without sin
We have also hurt others
In the past
And God forgave us.
