Hearing God’s Frequency


nightshade130:

Understanding what it means to Hear God at the right frequency. Are you tuned in or tuned out?

Originally posted on Real Talk With Jesus:

Hello Everyone!

radioToday, I felt like discussing how we, as Christians and non-Christians can hear from God. I find it extremely amazing how God can talk to just anyone in order to have His voice heard. However, my focus is to simply outline my experience of how anyone can hear the voice of God by tuning into his frequency.

You must be wondering how does anyone in this world tune in to God’s frequency in order to hear Him better? I liken this experience to an analogy on the radio. Let’s just imagine that everyone in the whole world had access to the radio to hear about news, current events, your favorite music station and so on. We have to tune the radio to a specific frequency in order to obtain the information we need.  Now let us imagine that the radio channel the Christian believer is on is the frequency…

Press In Your Presence – I will fight to worship you!


Hi Everybody!

I pray that you all are having a blessed Sunday. God is our strength from day to day and today is another day to give him the highest praise! :D

Today, I just want to seek y’all to pray for a young man by the name of Richie who is struggling with his family that is threatening him to stop pursuing praise and worship as a musician in our band. The situation is rather complex, but this young man loves God and wants to stay on our worship team, but the issues at home are preventing him from pursuing God with the passion he has burning in his chest to play his bass guitar with his friends in our praise team. He was beaten up by his father last night and the conditions at home are quite complicated since his father is living with another woman that is not his mother, and his grandmother is another obstacle that literally tried to stop him from coming to church last Sunday to do worship with us, however, he was able to make it after a phone call conversation with my Pastor. Seriously, can you believe that????!!!

People, this is what I mean when I say Worship is warfare…and unfortunately, in the case of Richie, this is the situation. Despite all of this, we are praying for him and we are taking steps to defend and fight for this young man that needs covering to get through all this. I simply cannot understand why people would want to prevent others from worshiping God, but without revealing too much personal information, what I will say is that we are up against a Strongman which is the spirit of RELIGION, coupled with PRIDE and ARROGANCE and a Spirit of CONTROL. So I pray that all my blogger friends join me and pray for this young man who seeks to pursue his passion to be a part of what God is doing. God wants this young man to worship freely and without being manipulated. He called my pastor and told him that he was really sad today because he really wanted to worship with us today. It really broke my heart because last week when he worshiped with us for the first time, he totally enjoyed it, I mean thoroughly enjoyed it. He has never felt so free in worship in his entire life and the best thing was that the whole band was comprised with his friends.

Worshiping God with freedom is a river to ones soul. It fills you and satisfies you in ways you cannot even begin to imagine or explain. The moment people try to snatch your worship away, it’s as if your soul has been thrust into a desert where you remain thirsty seeking for that drop of water to fill you with life again. I know personally and from experience that I cannot be in a place where worship is not done freely, and if a spirit of Control is attached to every action of a worshiper then aren’t we just marionettes singing songs masquerading as worship?

God doesn’t want a puppet show where one is only pulling at the strings, He wants each and every person to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. 

My Pastor is going to speak to the boy’s family today and as he does this let us put our hearts together and pray for this young man called Richie and pray that God breaks through in his situation. He is seeking God and we are praying that God will intervene in Jesus Name. 

Thank you so much for praying with me everyone. I really appreciate it.

If two or more are seen as touching anything, whatever we ask of God, it shall be done, Amen!

Here is a song by Shana Wilson that came to me as a song that seems to be the right one to minister to this young man’s needs called Press in Your Presence. I pray that this song blesses your spirit today. God Bless you everybody! :D 

Should a Christian listen to secular music?


nightshade130:

All the things you wanted to know about music but were afraid to ask when thinking about what is acceptable before God

Originally posted on Pastor Mike Says:

secularMany Christians struggle with this question. Many secular musicians are immensely talented. Secular music can be very entertaining. There are many secular songs that have catchy melodies, thoughtful insights, and positive messages. In determining whether or not to listen to secular music, there are three primary factors to consider: 1) the purpose of music, 2) the style of music, and 3) the content of the lyrics.

1) The purpose of music. Is music designed solely for worship, or did God also intend music to be soothing and/or entertaining? The most famous musician in the Bible, King David, primarily used music for the purpose of worshipping God (see Psalm 4:1; 6:1, 54, 55; 61:1; 67:1; 76:1). However, when King Saul was tormented by evil spirits, he would call on David to play the harp in order to soothe him (1 Samuel 16:14-23)…

Bondage Breaking Faith: THE KEY OF DAVID!

Hi Everybody!

Hope you are having an awesome weekend! Well, I’m in the mood for some praise and worship! Whoohooooo! The song I have today is the kind that will keep your head up by J.Moss! If you didn’t feel joy today, this song will uplift your spirit and make you dance!

When I think of David in the Bible and all the stuff he had to endure before he  became King of Israel, he wrote so many psalms to God to keep His focus on who it was that gave Him Strength when he was weak; Who gave him joy in times of depression; Who gave him hope even in the most dismal situations he had encountered while Saul was seeking him out to destroy him. David had a lot of praise to give to the Lord despite all the things that he was going through and this is…

Does God want Christians to be prosperous and rich?

Know your rights as Joint Heirs with Jesus Christ! Prosperity is part of the Salvation package. Why despise the gift of it out of ignorance?

 Memorise: “Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes”
(Prov 19:10)

Read: Ecclesiastes 10:5-7

“I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth” (Ecclesiastes 10:7). Solomon was the wisest man in the Old Testament. He had a simple way of communicating great truths. In today’s reading, he showed his dismay about servants ruling over princes. In Proverbs 30:21-23, hemoney said he could not tolerate a servant ruling over those who should rule over him. God shared this sentiment with king Solomon. Revelation 1:4-6 says you have been made a king and priest to God. 1 Peter 2:9 says you are of divine royal blood.

God is sad when He sees the one He created to dominate, at the mercy of those who should be under him. Are you living up to your billing…

These Shocking Photos Show The Scars You Can’t Normally See. And They’re Horrifying.


nightshade130:

Death and life are in the power of the tongue and we must learn not to use damaging words that impact others. Disclaimer: These images are pretty graphic but it drives the point across very well. Let us learn to use words that build other and not break them.

Words have meaning, and they possess the power to change the world.  They can inspire us to do amazing things, or to commit the most  horrible acts.  It’s up to everyone to understand they are responsible for wielding that awesome power.  Because words cut the deepest, and yet leave no marks, they can truly be the most devastating form of abuse.

PhotographerRichard Johnson, who has himself suffered from the worst kind of verbal abuse, created a series of photos to illustrate their incredibly harmful effect.  These images, created for theWeapon of Choice Project, are important because they remind us that the terms we throw out in moments of anger or frustration can be just as damaging as physical abuse.

CAUTION!: The photos below feature victims and strong terms of emotional, sexual and verbal abuse.

What Type of Soil Are You?

The Parable of the Sower Explained

13 And He said to them, “Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables? 14 The sower sows the word. 15 And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. 16 These likewise are the ones sown on stony ground who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with gladness; 17 and they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a time. Afterward, when tribulation or persecution arises for the word’s sake, immediately they stumble. 18 Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, 19 and the cares of this world

Mathew 19:16-22 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

18 “Which ones?” he inquired.

Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’”

20 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

This is a video that has been inspired by my earlier post Beauty that overshadows the real War inside. We should truly reflect on what it means to Shine our LIGHT in this Dark dark world.

John 8:12
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

John 9:5
