WHAT-HOW-WHEN
Do you know:
Who is controlling your life?
Who’s voice are you listening to?
Who’s guidance are you following?
Are you sure about that?
There are many voices out there…in the darkness. So many paths to follow…
Listen/Trust/Obey

We first learn how to trust from our parents, right? But, honestly, GOD is our true parent.
1. What
Do what GOD says
When I was in my twenties, GOD told me I would be working for HIM. I sensed it too. I knew what was coming but I was young and I wanted to party instead. Essentially, I told HIM no. Sad, right? YES! We all do it, I guess. At the time, I told my partner…my future husband that I wanted to go on missions and help people. He looked at me like I was crazy. Obviously, I didn’t do it.

2. How
Do it how GOD says
Doing something for GOD is not your everyday calling. We want to answer to the flesh first. I guess it’s in our nature.

perseverance

3. When
Do it when GOD says
This is the one I have been struggling with. I’ve been doing this kind of work for some time now, several years at the very least. In the last two years, GOD told me that I would be doing spiritual warfare. I didn’t even know what that meant a few years ago! I was spiritually immature. HE moved my spirit and I knew it was time to begin my training. I felt a sense of urgency. Since that time, I have ‘connections’ with GOD…and no I can’t explain it except to say that The Holy Spirit walks me through a path, and while on this journey I am given steps to take. These steps lead to the truth which I am to tell. From time to time, I don’t follow The Holy Spirit’s lead. I can’t answer why. I’ve learned to be able to tell when it’s The Holy Spirit calling, but I don’t follow 100% of the time. I take another direction but ALWAYS end up doing what The Holy Spirit revealed to me initially. I ALWAYS tell The Holy Spirit that I am sorry and that I should have listened in the first place, and I feel ashamed that I didn’t.
You see, GOD places us all on a path. A calling, if you will. Do we always answer when HE calls. NO! But, we should.
Obedience is the key to the personal relationship that our heart and soul/spirit tells us we need with GOD.
There is a verse in Psalm 105 that really stands out to me!
Psalm 105 (KJV)

3-crosses

4 Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
We are to continually seek HIM! We do this is several ways…we can make a space which we can use to worship HIM, and when we do this we can also seek HIM by staying in The Word. HIS Word.
The world is a mighty dark place. Cold and dark. It’s easy to step off into the abyss into places we have no right to be, going astray from the path. Truth is, we need obedience to keep The Word of GOD near us in this dark world.
Psalm 119 (KJV)
105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
We must remain sensitive to the voice! The Voice of The Holy Spirit. LEARN it. Listen to it! Respond to it.
John 16 (KJV)
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
In times of trouble…HE is there. And if we listen…He gives us the answer we seek, the answer we need.
In time of trouble…bad moods…The Holy Spirit is there to keep us in check!
Are you sensitive enough to hear HIM? Do you listen? Do you respond?
Isaiah 64 (KJV)
4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.
Being sensitive to HIS timing, not ours.
Being sensitive to The Word is also key to obedience.
GOD is:
Omnipotent-All powerful
Omniscient-All knowing
Omnipresent-All present
HE makes NO mistakes.
We must learn to be sensitive to HIS timing. We must learn to listen to HIM.

Proverbs 3 (KJV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
You know, sometimes the path may not be defined…it may not be clear…but we must trust in HIM.
When I began this journey…the path was so scary for me. I knew it was my destiny. I knew it was something GOD wanted from me. I knew I had to do it…but boy, oh boy…was I ever scared. It was the feeling of the carpet being pulled from under your feet at any time…kind of feeling!
I guess you could say…I didn’t trust GOD! I am ashamed to admit it but I was unsure. The direction was foggy but I took it step by step until I began to feel more sure of my next step before me. Now? It’s crystal clear to me.

Psalms40_2

Joshua 1 (KJV)
9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
This is a perfect Scripture. Put on your Armor of GOD!
This was a benchmark in my life! I’ve never been the same since that…
Now, I know I am a soldier in GOD’S ARMY! And I’m proud of it.
Take GOD out of the box. We can’t put GOD in a box!
Listen
Learn
Trust
Obey
With all these things comes confidence.

take-me-to-church-by-hozier
I found myself humming this song…the melody caught my ear and the voice – hypnotic…but it had me really thinking it was something it’s not. I watched the video only to be confused at the scene of it all. Have you see it? Has the tune caught your ear?
“Take Me To Church”

Hozier – Take Me To Church [link]
Quite catchy…huh?
What’s sad about this song is that it’s as offensive as Marilyn Manson….for an example. But, no one notices how evil it is. Young people are curious about sex! These lyrics trade faith as a sexual license to worship sex. Mocking Christians and their faith has become the norm! Satan wants people to love the flesh and hate the spirit.

In an interview with New York Magazine in March 2014, the artist Hozier states:
‘Take Me to Church’ is essentially about sex, but it’s a tongue-in-cheek attack at organizations that would… undermine humanity by successfully teaching shame about sexual orientation — that it is sinful, or that it offends God… But it’s not an attack on faith… it’s an assertion of self, reclaiming humanity back for something that is the most natural and worthwhile.
Irish songwriter Hozier released the video for his gospel-inspired epic, “Take Me to Church,” a cavernous song that uses love and ecstasy as a religious metaphor. This lyrics expressed his frustration with organized religion — and particularly the Catholic Church’s history of mistreating gays and covering up child sexual abuse. He wrote it in an effort to raise awareness and support for gay marriage following Russia’s criminalization of homosexuality.
Hozier — born Andrew Hozier-Byrne…believes man’s struggle is to find his own identity in an oppressive culture of church, in an age influenced heavily by the Catholic church and a nationalism that he just wants to be free of. Ironically, he believes the song is NOT an attack on faith…seriously? Hozier has been labelled an atheist by the press, but he says that’s not the case.
Quote: “We love the sinner, but we hate the sin.” It’s a backhanded way of telling someone to be ashamed of who they are and what they do.

He sang with Anúna which is an Irish choral group. In 1987 Dublin composer Michael McGlynn founded An Uaithne, a name which describes the three ancient types of Celtic music, Suantraí (lullaby), Geantraí (happy song) and Goltraí (lament).

In June 2012 Anúna released their new album Illumination, a fifteen track CD and in May featured on the soundtrack to the video game Diablo III. Blizzard Entertainment’s audio director, Russell Brower says “Working somewhat against conventional expectations, Hell is a beautiful and seductive sound, provided by Dublin’s uniquely astounding choral group ANÚNA”.


Frankly, I will let you decide what you think, but I believe these kinds of issues are brought forward to shape young minds. Our youth are vulnerable and music can influence their beliefs. If you ask a person who is ‘rethinking’ their sexual status and future of their relationships, you will most likely find either abuse or some event which has tainted their beliefs.
Now, the lyrics to this song is really strange…
My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s disapproval
I should’ve worshipped her sooner

If the heavens ever did speak
She’s the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week

“We were born sick,” you heard them say it

My church offers no absolutes
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you

I was born sick
But I love it
Command me to be well
Aaay. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I’m a pagan of the good times
My lover’s the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice

Drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That’s a fine-looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We’ve a lot of starving faithful

That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No Masters or Kings
When the Ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin

In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean
Ooh oh. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

sex-before-marriage
I believe GOD intended marriage to be a holy union between man and woman. And whenever sexual acts take place outside of this marriage, it involves pain and conflict…ultimately. This is a poison which society is now swimming/living in. Damaged marriages contain people who would cheat rather than repair what is damaged. “Sex” does not actually require commitment, and this is why so many young people don’t mature into loving relationships (lasting marriages), but once you’ve had sex with someone…what people don’t realize is that there is a bond, a tie…a union. These ties (when abused) can become a portal for demonic spirits to enter.

HOLDING-HANDS

The lyrics to this song is a true testament of social dysfunction, ….how the elite are guiding our youth into paths of sin.

stats
There is no doubt that religion is tainted by man. GOD did not intend on man having organized religions…but to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, as The Only Path to HIM!
