Conversations with God

Conversations and Meditating on and in Christ

Recently as I've meditated on God and been allowed to interpret the Spirits communication, I have been led to believe that there's a direct correlation with God, that shows if a person is essentially a good person or a bad person. If they can easily be mean to people, walk around with a lot of pride belittling people, or they think they're always right and act like it, with no humility, then these kind of people are being led by their flesh and an evil spirit. 

They probably have no sense that there is a caring God, nor have they ever accepted HIM as their personal savior. In fact, in most of these people, they have made a conscious decision to deny God.

This is the devils kingdom we are physically living in and although God made it, it was leased to the devil when Adam and Eve fell into sin. Since then, the devil has been in control of everything physical, and an evil influence in the spiritual realm. 

The one major tool that the devil conjured up was competition for everything, if it wasn't for this, this world would be a much more peaceful place.

As each day goes by I am convinced more and more that the heart of man is in essence, evil. God, having given man a free will did not make him like a robot. Man's heart and the physical desires of the heart, lead him to destruction and perdition.

I live around people everyday and I keep persevering, dealing with the rudeness of people and disregard of the younger toward the older. I see ungodliness all around and I want to turn my head away from it. It is in my house and in my neighborhood, it stares me in the face each day and I suffer from it's heart of evil.

I want to escape from it and run away. I want to hide my face from those around me. I think I could be happy as a hermit living off the grid, but yet, that's not what Jesus came for, that's not what he died for. And as a child of His, that's not what He would wish for in my personal existence! We are the seed of Christ after being born again!

When I think about how, on a daily basis, we are supposed to love our enemies and do good to those who spitefully use us, it's a really hard thing to tolerate unless we are allowing the Spirit of Christ to dwell in us.

Matthew 5:44 says this,
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. See also Luke 6:27 and Luke 6:35

I think about how Jesus might have felt as he walked throughout what now is the middle east and could read the minds of all who he came in contact with and even those he didn't. Most people don't think about these things.

So when the bible says that Jesus knowing their plans to kill him escaped through their midst, it doesn't say that as He read their minds knowing how they would try to take him, or communicate to others who would have needed to surround Him in order to carry out their evil deeds, he escaped them.

Every premeditated plan has to be orchestrated by people and so Jesus knew at the exact moment an evil, murderous thought entered into the minds of those who were near to His location.

Unfortunately, we as humans don't have that advantage.

We have to deal with the evil as we are confronted by it whether it's from a stranger or from our own family. If we are confronted by a stranger, we can usually get away from it and stay away from it. 

But, if we are daily rubbing up against hatred and strife from within our own house, it's a much harder thing to avoid it, and the pressure to fight against it becomes stronger as time goes on, even though we know we should embrace it and try to use the leverage of the Holy Spirit in our lives to dilute it down to a more palatable state or condition.

But how do we do that, if the other parties involved are not Godly, not mature, not caring individuals with no sense of responsibility or accountability for their actions?

I am in a constant state of conscious conversations with God trying to decipher His leading and the methods needed to deal with it on a day to day basis. Unforgiveness and bitter malice is not an easy thing to deal with.

How about a husband and wife in a mixed marriage? When there are children, no matter what age in the marriage, those children need to respect both of the adults in that marriage. No matter who is the step parent, the children need to be respectful. 

Proper guidelines for shared discipline is a must.

But in essence, the blood parent needs to retain the majority of responsibility for any disciplinary actions that aren't of a minor nature.

However, both adults should protect each other from disrespect from the children, that is how God would have it to be.

In the bible, there is no step parent.

If a family is joined together no matter what the mix, the husband and wife become the mother and father figures. One authority is mandated by the marriage vows of the other family member. That is God's way.

Unfortunately in a marriage where a new father is consummated in the family, it is often very hard for a wife to be a rigid disciplinarian
. That being said, the new father/step-father needs to balance or weigh his applied relationship toward the children very conservatively, which is hard, because children these days can be very stubborn and belligerent.

Each adult needs to support the other adult in all situations and never belittle or run down anything the other parent does or has done in front of the children. If they don't do this, the children will take advantage of that in a way that is very destructive toward the health of the family.

The bible says a house divided will fall.

King James Version (KJV)

Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Mark 3:25,26 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
26) And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. 

Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

My hope for you is that you have had a prayer of salvation,
and if you haven't and you want to ask Christ into your heart and life,
then I offer these words for you to repeat,
but only if your heart is sincere,
because God knows it if you're not.


Dear God, I now know I have needed you and have
rejected your calling, so today, right now, 
I ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and my life, 
and forgive me from all past sin and Lord cleanse me 
from my unrighteousness. I believe that Jesus was 
crucified for my sin, died, and was buried and rose from the
dead according to the scriptures. I want you forever more
to be my guide and I want to follow you as a believer. 
I ask for your strength to change my heart and 
my earthly ways so that I can become a better 
child in your kingdom. Show me how to depend 
on you in all things. And show me how to do 
your will in my life. I thank you and pray this 
prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
