"People Are Fickle"

"People are fickle...they like you one minute, and hate you the next.

People can be undependable,...they make promises, and rarely (can) keep them. Promises are cheap. People lie. Most promises are eventually broken. It is better NOT to promise and make a vow, then to say you will do something and then default.


Don't be rash with your words.

Most people are *people-pleasers*...they cannot say no, and thereby make false promises they never intend to keep.
This is dangerous, and wrong. It is a sin. It is making and telling a lie.

*****

Broken promises make broken lives...
broken hearts...
broken dreams...
broken minds...
broken hopes.

Lying brings destruction and heartache...and breeds in(as) anger and resentment.

(And listen:) it is MOST dangerous to make vows and promises to God your Father. The Lord is displeased with lying promises. He is not mocked: you will (eventually) reap what you have sown.

Do not promise what you cannot- or will not - do! It is much better NOT to make promises, then to break them!

God KEEPS His promises.

*******

In contrast, the Lord God always keeps His promises. His Word is His promise. If He has said it, He will (eventually) do it. He is a man of His Word!

He is faithful. He does not lie. Men and women lie, but our God our Father does not!

*******

Who is the *father of lies*?
The enemy, of course. He loves lies and relishes in lying.
He is the ultimate liar, and has been from the beginning.

His lies got him kicked out of Heaven. (and his pride and rebellion.)

Yes, lying goes along with pride and rebellion: all attributes of the evil one.

Compare this mess to the great truth of the Lord!

The Spirit of God is the Spirit of Truth. Jesus is the way, the TRUTH, and the life...in Him is no lie, no darkness, no evil.

-pause-


If you are caught in the grip of lies; of lying...I admonish you to repent.

Resist the enemy, the devil, the liar...and he will flee.
Submit to God, and be humbled under His mighty hand of truth.

The truth, you know, WILL (eventually) set you (totally) free!

And whom the Son (Jesus) has set free, is free indeed:

free from the devil and sin!

*******

So, many decisions will come your way.

You can decide to follow Jesus and His truth, or you can follow Satan and his lies.

But, beware, (for) sometimes the truth is polluted. Sometimes the enemy
uses partial truths in order to trap the sheep. (believers)

He is a master of lies,
of trickery,
of deceit,
of (the) false-SEEMING-true.

He is a *bluffer*. He is a manipulator and a deceiver.

*******

I, the Lord, will lead you into all truth....as you continue to follow Me.
Remember,
forcefully resist
the lies,
the condemnation,
the slander,
the attacks:
for I WILL have a free people!

I am fighting for you, My children, My precious lambs! I am interceding for each and every one of you!
I care deeeply for EACH of you.

Believe Me and My Word: for I do not lie! You can count on Me and My promises.
Stick with Me and I'll stick with you!

I love you, kids!"

"Alien On Earth"

"You are not of this world." - St. John 15:19a

*******

"You are not of this world. You are an *alien*, so to speak. You are a stranger, a foreigner, to this world.

Be IN this world, but be not OF it.
You are not your own, you were bought with a Price.
My Son paid the Price for you. He has paid the ultimate Ransom.

He has made the everlasting Exchange...His life for yours.

He died that you may live.
You have accepted this fact. You have asked, invited, prayed for Messiah - My Son - to inhabit your heart, your spirit.

He has accepted your invitation.
He has come to dwell within you. You are part of His celestial body.

Again...you are not of this world.

You are a pilgrim travelling through a foreign, strange land.

You are just passing through.

This is not your home.

Heaven is your home.

-pause-

*******

Enter My presence with joy...with thanksgiving.
This is not (merely) a trite saying: it is survival for you.

You MUST praise Me for your own good!
It is not an option: it is mandatory.


Am I a hard taskmaster?
The reason for My commands is for YOUR benefit, not to punish you!
It is for your well-being...(for) your connection with Me.

Praise is a divine connection.
It is *plugging into* My atmosphere!


You need My power.

I tell you the way.

Now, plug in!"
