What Is the Root Problem Of Human Beings?


Genesis 3:11-13

And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?” Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.” And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

We all know this story very well, and from the beginning, to this day, the root problem of human beings remain. DISOBEDIENCE!

What is the first word most children learn when they are able to speak? NO! 

That should tell us something right there! And from our first words all through life we see the sin of disobedience in our lives and in the lives of our closest friends and family. And then when we have children of our own, they continue the cycle and we see ourselves in our children, doing the same things we did and becoming more disobedient than we were!

How can we stop being disobedient? The only way is JESUS!

Jesus is the only One who can deliver us from evil, forgive us of our sins, baptize us with the Holy Spirit, and walk with us as we go through the many stages of growth as a Christian.

Another clear example of what happens when we disobey is the story of King Saul in 1st Samuel. God sent His prophet Samuel to Saul and gave him direct commandments to perform, but Saul did not obey the word of the Lord. He did some of what God said, but not all, therefore God rejected Saul as King. We can't just do some of God's commands and leave some out and then think we are obeying, we must do everything God commands us!

1st Samuel 15:10-11, 17-23

"Now the word of the Lord came to Samuel, saying, “I greatly regret that I have set up Saul as king, for he has turned back from following Me, and has not performed My commandments.”

"So Samuel said, “When you were little in your own eyes, were you not head of the tribes of Israel? And did not the Lord anoint you king over Israel? Now the Lord sent you on a mission, and said, ‘Go, and utterly destroy the sinners, the Amalekites, and fight against them until they are consumed.’ Why then did you not obey the voice of the Lord? Why did you swoop down on the spoil, and do evil in the sight of the Lord?”

"And Saul said to Samuel, “But I have obeyed the voice of the Lord, and gone on the mission on which the Lord sent me, and brought back Agag king of Amalek; I have utterly destroyed the Amalekites. But the people took of the plunder, sheep and oxen, the best of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice to the Lord your God in Gilgal.”

"So Samuel said: “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.”

Saul contradicted himself as he spoke, saying he obeyed the voice of the Lord, BUT, he brought back Agag and allowed his soldiers to bring back the best sheep and oxen to sacrifice to the Lord. He disobeyed the direct commandments of God and he paid the consequences of it!

Isn't it better to obey ALL the Lord says?

The choice is yours!

The Choice Is Yours!


2nd Corinthians 5:9-10

"Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad."

The scripture tells us we must ALL appear before the judgement seat of Christ! Every single soul that has lived or will live WILL BE JUDGED! You can't run from it, you can't hide from it, you will have to face the KING, whether you are a Christian or not, regardless of your beliefs, you will have to give an account of your life on this earth.

This is why God made man with free will, you can choose to do wrong or right, you can choose to obey His word or not, but in the end when your immortal soul leaves your fleshly body, you will cross over into the spirit realm, and where you go from there will be according to the choices you made while your soul inhabited skin and bones, and breathed air everyday. 

The word of God tells us that it's not God's will that ANY should perish, but that ALL come to repentance (changing of your mind)  that their soul may be saved! But again the choice is yours!

2nd Peter 3:9

"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance."

It's so sad that many today don't care what happens to them, because they are so depressed, broken, poor, or sick. But then on the other hand, you have the wealthy who trust in their riches and their intellect or their status, but don't realize they need Jesus just as much as the homeless man or woman living in a cardboard box!

The word of God tells us that the rich and the poor will be judged, the small and the great will stand before the throne of God! 

Revelation 20:13

"Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire."

You must understand that God supernaturally preserved His word so that we would know His laws and commandments, so that we would choose to do what is pleasing in His sight, what is good and right. Make no mistake, there will be no escape from the day of judgement, and EACH ONE will be judged according to his works! What you do with your time, your money, your mind, and your body, while you are upon the face of this earth, because after you take your last breath and your silver cord is loosed, there will be no coming back.

The choice is yours!

How Will You Respond When God Comes Down?

The two pictures above are the mountain peak of Jabel Al Lawz in Saudia Arabia. Many believe this is the real Mount Sinai that God Himself descended upon in fire and burned the top. Could evidence of this great biblical event still remain to this day? I believe so! 

You have to understand that the human mind cannot really grasp supernatural and spiritual occurrences happening on a daily basis. To read about these things in the bible are one thing but to experience them in the natural is completely another! 

When God descended upon Mount Sinai the scripture tells us.

Exodus 19:16-18, 20:18-21

"Then it came to pass on the third day, in the morning, that there were thunderings and lightnings, and a thick cloud on the mountain; and the sound of the trumpet was very loud, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled. And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. Now Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly."

"Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off. Then they said to Moses, “You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.” And Moses said to the people, “Do not fear; for God has come to test you, and that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin.” So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was."

There was a popular Christian song by Jesus Culture feat. Kim Walker-Smith called "Show Me Your Glory." One line of lyrics say: "I see the cloud, I step in, I want to see Your glory like Moses did Flashes of light, rolls of thunder, I'm not afraid I'm not afraid...Show me your glory...."

Now in light of what the word of God says, do you think that you're going to see the cloud and just step in? Do you think that you're not going to tremble and be afraid, if you looked up in the sky and saw a thick black cloud forming with great flashes of lighting, ear shattering rolls of thunder, and a VERY LOUD trumpet sounding from Heaven?

That's why just singing a song about God or Jesus does not equal the REALITY!

All we have today is movies to help us visualize what it could have been like in reality, but when you experience something like this in the physical realm and see it up close and personal it WILL affect and CHANGE you in some way, at the very least you will know there is a supernatural LIVING GOD and Creator of Heaven and Earth who dwells in another dimension from our own and at the appointed times He intervenes in the lives of His creation and comes down to help His people.

When God came down after Adam and Eve sinned, what did they do? They ran and hid themselves in the trees! 

When God came down in the flesh as Jesus the Christ, the word tells us in John 1:11 

"He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him."

We keep crying out for revival but we must be prepared for God to come down, we must have our hearts and minds ready, to not only be loved and blessed by God, but also be judged and corrected by Him as well! 

When Jesus was born and His parents went into the temple, Simeon,  a just and devout man, was led by the Spirit into the temple as well and prophesied and said in Luke 2:33-35

"And Joseph and His mother marveled at those things which were spoken of Him. Then Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against (yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.”

Even the mother of Jesus was not exempt from the corrections and judgements of God!

When Peter saw the miracle that was done through Jesus, he didn't want Jesus to be around him.

Luke 5:5-8

"But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!”

How will you respond when God comes down?

PRIDE (The destroyer of souls!)


Pride is so subtle, it makes you think you're self sufficient, you can do everything by yourself. It makes you believe that you don't need help, you're just fine, there's nothing wrong with you, and everything you do and say is right and it's everybody else who's wrong.

Pride will keep you from listening to great advice, whether it be from your parents, friends, your spouse, or God Himself! Pride and a haughty eye most assuredly comes before destruction. I myself was full of pride and even had an evil spirit of pride in me! I know this because one morning I heard the evil spirit cry out it's name, priiiiiiiiide, and I felt it leave me and go out the window! I praise God for His Holy Spirit who cast that devil out of me!

Pride can and will destroy your soul if you let it, and the only way to be delivered from pride is to humble yourself in the sight of the LORD! 

Psalm 10:4-6

The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts. His ways are always prospering; Your judgments are far above, out of his sight; As for all his enemies, he sneers at them. He has said in his heart, “I shall not be moved; I shall never be in adversity.”

Pride is what brought down Lucifer, a covering cherub, that God created for His good pleasure. He became satan, a corrupted fallen angel, who has the power to deceive the whole world.

Ezekiel 28:17

"Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground, I laid you before kings, That they might gaze at you."

That is what happens to many physically attractive men and women, they become so engrossed with themselves and their beauty, they become corrupt in the heart, and although their outward appearance may be appealing their inner self is very ugly!

As Christians we must fight the evil spirit of pride in every area of our lives. Don't resist correction, humble yourself when you realize you're wrong. Seek help from others, and offer to help them in return. Listen to advice from those who are more spiritually mature than you are, listen to those who are more experienced and learn from them. 

Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord, and HE WILL LIFT YOU UP!

The Wheat And Tares, More Insight!


Matthew 13:24-30

"Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” ’ ”

This is one of my favorite parables and I wrote another blog some years ago on this topic, but I want to add a little more insight into this great parable.

Jesus explains the parable.

Matthew 13:36-43

"Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field.”

He answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"

1st Point: Jesus completely destroys the false teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture with this parable and the explanation of it.

2nd Point:  So many believer's THINK that being inside of a church building separates them from the world, and that they are somehow more spiritual and righteous than others. But again Jesus annihilates the false teaching of the Tares being outside the church walls, but the people gathered inside the building are the wheat.

Jesus said clearly, the field IS THE WORLD! He didn't say that you become His wheat because you go and sit inside a church building. Do you think that the devil can't come and sit right next to you inside that building? In fact he has done that for decades already, which is why many who profess Christ are powerless and without spiritual discernment. Witches, masons, false prophets and unconverted people sit inside the church building and say amen, sing songs, go up to altar calls and congregate with true believers, and they don't even know it! Many so-called pastors belong to the masonic order and other secret societies and get up into the pulpit every Sunday and oppress the souls of all who listen to them speak.

Paul said in the last days people would gather to themselves teachers to say whatever their itching ears want to hear! That prophecy is being fulfilled right now! What happened to preaching the truth of God's word and applying it? 

3rd Point: The wheat and tares look exactly alike UNTIL they are fully grown! You can't tell the difference between a witch or a mason and a spirit-filled believer sitting right next to each other! But once they are fully grown you WILL be able to tell the difference!

The face of Stephen was shining like an angel and everyone looking at him could see it!

Acts 6:15

"And all who sat in the council, looking steadfastly at him, saw his face as the face of an angel."

The Lord said there will come a day when you will know who serves Him and who does not!

Malachi 3:16-18 

"Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, And the Lord listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the Lord And who meditate on His name. “They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts, “On the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them As a man spares his own son who serves him.” Then you shall again discern Between the righteous and the wicked, Between one who serves God And one who does not serve Him."

Fear And Shame


Fear and shame are two of the biggest weapons of the devil, from the garden of Eden to this present day. Those two evil feelings are a direct result of sin in a person's life and can be inherited while still in the womb! If your mother is full of fear and shame, it can be passed on to the fetus even before the child is born. That is how generational curses are perpetuated in a family and only the power of God's grace and Spirit can liberate a soul from that heavy oppression.

When Adam and Eve sinned, immediately evil entered them and they became afraid of God instead of loving God and desiring His presence and fellowship. They became ashamed of who they were and how God made them, they saw that they were naked and hid themselves from their Creator. Fear can cripple and paralyze whole neighborhoods, cities, states, and countries! I write from experience on that because fear kept me from doing so many good things in life, for myself and others.

As a Christian, fear will keep you from speaking the truth in love, to other believers and unbelievers alike! Instead of standing up for the truth of God's word, Christians who are filled with fear, will run from confrontation, they will compromise their faith and even deny Jesus and His word. Peter was tested just like that and we know he denied Jesus three times, because he was really afraid of death, but he had spoken the exact opposite to Jesus.

Matthew 26:35

"Peter said to Him, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” And so said all the disciples."

If your heart and mind is full of fear and shame, then you are not prepared to face death for Jesus, or to stand up for the truth. But it's not too late to prepare yourself! Because Jesus said clearly that one day all the nations will hate Christians for His name sake.

Shame, like fear, will cause you to shut your mouth when someone asks are you a Christian? And you feel ashamed to say yes, because you will be ridiculed or mocked. If you are ashamed to speak the truth because of fear of being shunned, persecuted, opposed, or even killed for your belief, then call on Jesus now for help in this area, because it's getting worse and worse in this world, and the love of many has grown cold. People no longer want correction, righteousness, and holiness, they want it easy, they want to do what they want, and say what they want, and gather together with those who believe as they do, but not according to the word of God.

Fear and shame work hand and hand, but as Christians we must be delivered from this evil so that we can be bold in the face of the devil. We must be perfected in love, because perfect love drives out ALL fear! 

In Jesus Name,

It's one thing to TALK ABOUT God, and an entirely different thing to EXPERIENCE God! Moses was such a one who was blessed and honored to have experienced the presence, power, and glory of The  Most High God. 

Prepare us Lord and make us ready to experience you, and not just talk about you, or watch movies about your great works. But to actually experience the supernatural manifestations and power of Almighty God in THIS generation! In Jesus Name I pray!
