Been a lil minute since I’ve written here. I can’t stay away too long though! This past Sunday the Deacon at church told a story that resonated in me. I wanted to share this with as many people as I can. I was able to find a very similar version online… Here it is: The entire story was copied from http://carolynsplace.com/insp/Jesus_vs_Satan.html if you wanna go check it out there, she has cool pictures and stuff too lol
One day Satan and Jesus were having a conversation.
Satan went to visit Jesus in the Garden of Eden,
and Satan came all happy and boasting. (Lk 4: 1-12; Job 1: 6-12)
“Yes, Lord, now I have everybody captive,
(well nearly everybody down there).
I set traps, I used the baits of temptation,
I know well what each one of them can’t resist.
I nearly caught them all!” (I Pet 5: 8-9; Eph 6: 10-17)
“What are you going to do with them?” Jesus asked.
and He was praying to God the Father.
Satan answered “Oh, I am going to have some fun with them!”
I’ll make them divorce after they have married
so the foundation of humanity will never be able to be established
“the family” (Mt 19: 4-6; Mal 2: 16)
I will make them hate each other and abuse each other,
make them fall into alcohol and drugs without control. (Rom 13: 12-14)
I will teach them to make weapons and bombs,
so they kill each other
“I am really going to have fun!”
“And when you are tired of playing with them, what will you do?”
Jesus asked. And continued praying
“Oh, I will kill them all and their souls will be mine forever”
“Lord by all respect, it’s their decision” (I Jn 3: 8-10)
“How much do you want for all of them?” Jesus asked.
“Oh, you can’t want these people. They aren’t anything good.
Why do you want them if they neither follow you nor love you?
Many hate you! I have seen many of them spitting on you, cursing you and even denying you.”
“What’s more, they love me a lot” (Mt 24: 10-13)
“You don’t want these people!!”
“How much?” Jesus asked again
Satan looked at him with a nasty face
“All your tears and all your blood,
all the pain of the entire world, all together” (Is 53: 4-10; I Pet 2: 24)
“and He paid the price” (II Cor 5: 21)
How terrible it is that people don’t seek for God,
and then ask themselves why the world is going to hell!
How terrible that we seek the newspaper everyday to read tragedies
and we never seek the Bible
How insensible it is how everybody wants to go to heaven,
thinking they can get there without having to believe,
without loving God above all things,
or doing what the Bible says…the Laws of God.
It is terrible how some people can say “I believe in God”
but still follow Satan (Who as matter of fact, does fear God)
(II Tim 4: 3-4; II Jn 1: 7-11)
Don’t you think it’s pathetic how they send
each other thousands of jokes by email,
so they spread like plagues.
But when it’s about the Lord’s messages,
we think about it twice before we share them;
and we leave the mailboxes of our friends without this message
Don’t you think it is outrageous that the obscene,
vulgar and crude is allowed freely to pass through the internet
that even many people would desire to get into the screen.
But it is forbidden to speak publicly about Jesus
in the schools, places of work
self-helping groups, etc… (Acts 4: 19-20)
Even after knowing what He did for us.
Because the Romans didn’t kill Him. It was our sin.
that we may be forgiven
and know Him in His glory with the Father.
Doesn’t it seem incredible to you how somebody can be alight
on Sabbath in the Church,
worshipping and thanking the Lord for His mercy,
for one more day to live etc.
But during the rest of the week he is an invisible Christian!
(II Tim 3: 1-5; Rom 10: 9-13)
Does this seem just to you?
Don’t let Satan stop you sending this Mail
to all your contacts on the Web,
It doesn’t matter if he tells you that many don’t believe this
Don’t let him get through with his plans!
Stop worrying what the others may think about you
It is time to worry about what “God thinks about you”
Please brother and sister, pass it on?
“I already did it”
May God bless you always (II Cor 13: 13)
But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him.
What else can I say? Society as a whole needs to get back to standing up for GOD and stop worrying about offending one of HIS children. Spare the rod, spoil the child… remember that?
I am in so much pain!
It’s becoming very difficult to bear the things that occur in today’s world. 40-50 years ago most things that we accept today wouldn’t have been tolerated. We’re so desensitized nowadays to the point no one is using their brain or the sense God gave a mule. The people that still have some sense left are so few and far between and most don’t care to do or say anything. Well someone has to.
I actually was enlightened earlier after reading that Disney has decided to ban the advertisement of junk food during their programs. (lol after years of hidden sexual messages in their movies), but I’m talking about issues that are way beyond food and health. I mean that’s great don’t get me wrong, but it’s just a diversion.
We have people sleeping around with each other, spreading diseases, confused about their gender, men with men, women with men, writing all over their bodies… omg the list goes on and on and on. Oh and this just in,
Well now I present to you “Trayvoning”
Are you kidding me?!?!
This is what’s acceptable. Mocking the murder of an innocent teen.
What can I say? The moment you try to correct certain things people get defensive and accuse you of judging them. I’m not judging you. Right is Right, Wrong is Wrong.
Honestly, I really can care less anymore. If you wanna make a complete ninny of yourself go right ahead. For those that agree I’m here to help.
Here’s the thing, God knows we’re not perfect. Everything has a price though including sins. So as payment for our sins God sent his only son here who’s blood serves as payment in full. We have to be aware of what’s going on day to day. We must repent daily. It’s not easy to get into heaven and being a part-time Christian isn’t gonna cut it.
So I started this webshow a few months ago and released about 7 episodes. It started as entertainment and the goal was to get a few laughs and get some of that “YouTube” stardom. LOL…
Then one day I just decided to end the show. I just didn’t see a clear path and it was becoming very hard to maintain production. Weeks later I was having one of my “reflection” moments and I just felt the need to do something. Then it hit me. Confession Friday is the perfect contribution! If I can draw the attention to myself and a few other close friends then everyone wouldn’t feel like they were the ones being judged. We’re confessing about our own lives, meanwhile you’re watching and actually THINKING about how this applies to you.
I now am awakening up to more and more in just this short time. Just working on the show has kept God a part of my daily life because he’s the reason I’m working on it now. If God is at the forefront of what you do then you can’t go wrong. It’s fool proof!
So my challenge to you,
This is a video as part of my vLog DjTjsays. This episode I discuss Aids as a punishment from God rather that a virus that we have yet to find a cure for. Listen to my thoughts and leave your own.
I have spoken. Lol,
Hi, (Not big on pleasantries as you may have noticed, lol)
Today I’m thinking this can’t be what God created the world to be. But first,
I’d like to introduce a new “Question of the Day” segment compliments of my Twin @MissJett84 twitter action. You may have noticed the Twitter widget over there ——> I’ll review the Question of the Day during track talk, but you can also participate live via twitter just follow me or my twin, i’m @iamDjTj
Question of the Day:
What do you feel is the reason that most bf/gf relationships don’t last after the couple has a child?
-One person says “I believe it responsibility and compassion… w/o either one or the other can even make Stevie Wonder say “Where are my shades”
I say the fact that they were bf/gf when they had the child. There was no real promise of commitment to begin.
What do you think? Lightning bolt! Just found a use for that random tab at the top of the page… If you look now you’ll see the new Question of the day tab…. Click there now to answer today’s question.
So back to what I was saying.
Go To Bed, I just found out I can play music too… shouldn’t have told me that, Go ahead and push play.
Ok, God created the world we live in right? Was there some type of agreement somewhere I don’t know about that says 1% of the population gets to chill and enjoy this world and the rest of us have to work our asses off just to stay afloat. Especially when there is an abundance of resources. Like seriously, we’re not gonna run out, EVER…
Some things just don’t make sense, yes I will list these things….
We have to pay for energy. Lights, oil, gas etc. that type of stuff. Um, ok? Can someone tell me who owned a Dinosaur?
I believe that’s where we get fossil fuel from right? Maybe they own the machines and stuff, but I never said I wanted to use a non renewable source of energy in the first place. Who’s bright idea was that? So nobody in the room was like, “hey guys at some point we’re probably gonna run out of oil”? Bunch of idiots if you ask me… Did you know: The sun provides all the energy we would ever need EVER, and it rises and sets everyday like clockwork. Why not come up with use for that in the first place… OH forgot, it’s FREE and you can’t make a profit from it.
So yea, we really buy stuff that other people grow themselves. Lazy! As for water, you know what I’m not even gonna waste white space with that one.
If the other two weren’t dumb, this has to be the dumbest. Ok I’ll give you this piece of paper with a dead guy’s picture on it for these items which you’ve assessed a value to. Oh by the way that piece of paper is worthless. Try going cash it in for Gold and see what happens. (oops slipped out) But yea, remember when the teacher told you to do your homework? That’s probably the best piece of advice he/she could give you. Why else is there a growing deficit? Can you say interest fees?
Hey, That’s the way of the world though….
I just know God didn’t intend for it to be like this. Maybe I should blame Adam and Eve, but then again…. nah u know what, Not gonna even say my next comment.
Ok let’s just say Sir Francis Bacon had some involvement with the KJV of the Bible…. I’ll leave it at that. (Who’s that guy? Homework ppl)
Here’s a letter to send you your local Billionaire:
Please send me .1 of a percent of your net worth and I can retire myself and a whole lot of people tomorrow.
That’s a wrap
Oh, don’t forget… Question of the day. Imma make it a two part question. I’m interested to here what you all are fed up with too.
Good day Folks,
Today I’m going to tell you about the Ultimate G.
The Ultimate G is one like no other. He answers to no one, but all must answer to him. Whatever he wants he makes it himself. Don’t try to get over on him because he has eyes everywhere. He takes care of his family and all of his children. He has many haters and many deny his status. He maintains order and punishes those who are deserving. He doesn’t give hand outs, but is very willing to show you the way. He will protect those who are defenseless and provide for those who are unable. Those who are wise play by his rules. For He is God, The Ultimate G.
Just think for a moment…
I don’t care how big and bad you think you are, or how rough and tough you act. You will never be greater than God, the Ultimate G. I can’t even put how far from Him you are into words. Scientist have not measured a unit of distance for me to even calculate this. Just start counting and don’t stop. Whenever you get to the end let me know…. (might be a while).
So instead of projecting a negative image which puts you even further from God than you already are. How about using your skills and talent to promote positive things. Positive moves closer to God. Rest assured the positive feedback and respect is far more genuine than the feedback received from the negative image.
If you’re reading this and you on the positive side of things, take this message and translate it others. Especially those of our youth that are constantly faced with the choice between Good and Evil. Nowadays Evil is considered the norm and those who are good are weird. “Goodie two shoes” How backwards is that? It’s hard for 1 person to take a stand alone against a large group. We must all stand up together and support each other. I cannot continue to sit here and watch Evil take over. We need to take corrective action. Make it unacceptable, and if you only influence one person you’ve helped a dozen. Misery loves company, but Happiness draws all.
