Most people believe that they receive information about this world through their mind. You can see with your eyes, hear with your ears, speak with your mouth, but that is only part of the information you receive. We as a human being are made up of a body, soul and spirit. The body comes from the dust of the earth. The soul is the life that God gives to unite your spirit and body. The spirit is who you are and is eternal. When people talk about your heart, they really mean your spirit. God made us in His image and likeness. We have attributes that God has that we can access, such as love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, gentleness, meekness and temperance. Our heart searches for these attributes all of our lives. Hoping that we can find them in the things of this world. That is why the heart is a lonely hunter for God. The only way to receive what God has is to receive it from God himself. There is no other way that the Heart can truly be satisfied. Straight is the gate and narrow is the way.
When Jesus died on the cross, the people of Jerusalem came out and laughed, jeered and mocked him. It seemed as if there was no one for him. His mother was at his feet, crying. The Apostle John came with Mary and several women. The Centurion that crucified Jesus began to believe in him. But the shame of it was that I was at that cross mocking and jeering the Son of God. Until I was 28 years old, I stood at that cross and cursed God. All that Jesus did to redeem me for hell and the grave and I cursed him. I kept hearing my name being called from a long way off. I would turn to see who was calling me. Finally when I was 28 years old, I understood who was calling. It was Jesus calling from the cross. Telling me that He loved me just the way I was and to come home. He is calling out. All you have to do is listen for your name and turn toward him. He loves us as we are and will accept us. Listen.
What do you think about when someone says the anti-christ? Do you see a devil with a pitchfork trying to poke someone? Or is it someone who has a different belief system than you? There has been some trashy movies and videos that I would call the anti-christ. Pornography definitely is the anti-christ. But what else is the spirit of anti-christ? Abortion is on the top of my list. You can name the 7 deadly sins in that list too. But what about lying? What about hate or anger? The word of God says that anyone who yields yourselves servants to obey, you become his servants. If you yield yourselves to sin, you become the servant of the devil or the anti-christ. That why it is so important that you read the word of God, so that no one can lead you astray from Jesus Christ. The spirit of anti-christ is lying and cheating or stealing. It is in the mundane things that we do in life. Do you help your neighbor or says that you just do not have time? My most favorite TV show, which I watch all the time, is the spirit of anti-christ. And it is a good TV show, no sex, no cursing and always upbeat. I gave up card games, because I was convicted of sin. You know cards were invented to tell fortunes and for astrology. Astrology was invented as a religion to control the people of Babel by Nimrod. Your perception of what is right and wrong, is based on the word of God. People have always tried to change to word of God to suit their purposes. But if you differ from the word of God, you separate yourself from God Himself. Perception is in all that you see and understand. And the word of God will tell you the truth, whether you like it or not.
