If if you love the world; matter fact if you don't have the doctrine of GOD and believe it with faith in your hearts you don't have neither the love of the father nor the son.
What was Whitney Houston last words before she died?
“ I want to love like Jesus did ”. Not only that, Dixon says that Whitney spent the last night reading the Bible
That's interesting but biblical Jesus truly came to call people to repentance.
Did you know that Jesus Christ was rejected and despised of men yeah. He did all those great works for people by raising people from the dead and healing people and showing love in a way that they never had known. He made Fishers out of men. Yet he was very bright and sinless. No he did not have a relationship with Mary Magdalene because he is the unblemished Lamb of God. He showed her love. There was absolutely no sin in him.
Whitney Houston died at the age of 48 on February 11, 2012, in Los Angeles at a Beverly Hilton hotel.
You know when we are young lots of us want to be successful at something. We want to share whatever gifts we have being our talents with other people. And when we are young we grow into whom we are. But only God knows whom we truly are. We want to be like people that we idolized or were impressed by. And there are things that when a person is young impresses them whether it be in music or in films or in sports or even in building construction via automobiles or inventions, etc. I remember thinking I want to be an astronaut. And I liked science to and did science experiments as a young person. I used to buy all the records of people I was impressed with and as I was learning music I would try to learn songs. I did perform live very young. A few times. One time playing saxophone in a live performance in the high school theatre. It might have been a gym turned into a theatre because it had a stage. Another time when I was in early guitar classes I was invited to play live at a high school just one time and I did that. I used to take my guitar on trips one time to Acapulco and played on the balcony with a couple of friends while people on other balconies were our audience. We had great times. And I played live on a TV show with a band and we somehow won a top 40s competition audition. It was fun. One time we were at a club and they had a live band and it was pretty busy and I had a best friend who used to be encouraging and he said if you go up there and sing I will buy drinks all night. That time I was in high school I believe and things weren't too easy and my friend ran a business and had money so I went and asked the band can I sing with you and he went to the washroom. When he came out he heard me on stage throughout the whole place. I was scared and after one song I was ready to get off and the people cheered and I did another song and the leader of the band said they like you and I did about three or four more songs nonstop as the leader of the band said you got to keep the audience moving and that was an experience. There were other things too. Maybe it was to impress people or myself. But I did have a deep love for music. I started to write my own songs. Have some very early ones. Eventually they started to surprise me. And I did try different bands or doing sessions and all of the nine yards. I also had a personal life. I had some friends who we're womanizer so and I started to do the same thing. But the truth is I was not like them. But you can get lost in yourself and that is not the life that the Lord Jesus Christ would want for us. I was frustrated because I wanted to seek that life and that got in the way of my personal life with my whomever I was with then. And such a thing can destroy your relationships. See Jesus said that sin is death. And God will let you fall. Some people leave young. The Bible says that some people God gives over to Satan for the body to destruction because if they had gone on any longer they would have ended up in hell. I heard one pasture talk about this a couple of months ago. I think that's in scripture somewhere. Now I'm not anything special. Although at times sometimes people were a little bit impressed. But the will of God is for us to obey him and to come and give our lives to him and to follow a Straight Gate which is not the way of the world. I was once in the world and I had a burning desire for those things men do. Not anymore. Because I've given my life to the Lord. He says in scripture you were bought with a price. In fact the gospel says that God owns our souls. And he gives us instructions but many people don't obey him and many people don't know him but they think they do. You know I had an infatuation young for Elvis Presley, The Beatles and many other groups in different categories of music. I'm not anything hot. But probably when I was young at times I surprised myself so I know what it's like on both ends. You know when people wanted to go to funerals the Lord Jesus Christ would tell them let the dead bury the dead and you go preach the gospel. Why do you suppose he did that? Because then they show that they have no faith. He is the God of the living. And people would test him and say let me go visit those people at the home and he would say the same thing go preach the gospel and let the dead bury the dead. He never caved in to what people wanted to hear. They say sometimes he might make people angry. You see because if he is life, if God is life then it is said when a person is born again they passed from Death To Life. So when you leave Earth you would be present with the Lord if you were saved. But if you are not saved and did not repent and believe in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ you would end up in hell. And I see people like Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and especially the lovely Whitney Houston whom a couple of these people we're Baptists or true Christians but they drifted away lived toxic lives. Elvis was a Baptist and sang gospel. Whitney Houston grew up singing gospel. But you got to remember the truth is not what people want to hear. Because friendship with the world is enmity with God. It makes you God's enemy and that is written in James 4:4 . This is why the Lord Jesus Christ said you can't serve two masters. You will love one and despise the other. You will get to eternal life and end up in hell because you hate the narrow way but you loved the broad way that leads to destruction. And many people say that these people that passed away even with drug overdose and the fact that they were indulged in sins of the world that is not too hard to see for a true Christian is futile but also delusional because it is not the words of the Holy scriptures. Because the Lord taught that the real way is a cross. That's why the apostles and the martyrs of Jesus Christ and Jesus himself and many prophets did live a life reserved to holiness. Many of them were martyred. Peter was crucified upside down and he is a saint and in heaven. The great prophet Isaiah I heard was sawn in half. Elijah was one of the most anointed Prophets. You have to remember we live in a fallen world where the devil is the prince or some say the god of this world. So there's only one way to life and that is what Jesus taught. That narrow straight Gate way. So at one point everything started to fall apart because I was doing things that were sinful. And they have a saying that sometimes God has to throw you out to reel you back in. He punishes or he scourges those he loves. Some of it was stupidity and I did it to myself but some of it I knew came from God. You know the Bible says that some people are made for honor and some people for dishonor and who are we to argue with the potter. Our maker. Romans 9:21kjv 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour ? As I said before it got so bad that I was broken in spirit and I started to read scripture and pray and to my amazement later guess who came calling and came to my Aid? No it wasn't those friends that leave you. It was the Lord. God loves me and you. He gave his life as a ransom for many. So you see people are Idol worshipers and the truth is they want to serve two masters and be accepted but it doesn't work. Because hell exists and the Bible says it expands and gets bigger all the time. Some people have excruciating experiences in near-death experiences and they might not all be true but there are some that I know are true. And God cannot lie and there are things that are affirmed that even true Christians know. Because they have a comforter that is real. The way of the world is not the way of God. And you might in your passion be sitting say to oneself this person or that person is in heaven but it might not be so. I remember being in biblical Church once and it was somebody's death that they were announcing. And the Pastor said somebody maybe a relative suggested that they are in heaven. But the person had some sort of criminal record background and never repented. And the preacher on the stage was harsh and said he is exactly where he wanted to be in eternal torment/hell. The words of Our Lord are not the words of wishful thinkers. You need to be a Christian and a believer in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. The wages of sin is death. So if you die in your sins and you end up in hell you're being paid what you earned in this life and this is the way it really is. People think God is such a pushover that he's so loving that everybody will get into his kingdom but that's not the case. Yesterday I was looking at the book of Revelation. God is talking to the seven churches and he tells them their faults or is complimenting some that he's impressed with. One of them he told them he would rather it he that they were neither lukewarm or hot because he would rather have it that they were on fire for the Lord and they weren't lukewarm.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
No matter what you think you cannot serve God and the world. You might end up in hell and that is the truth. Then you might say to yourself God is a monster. They have a saying that the people that are in hell right now God wanted them but they did not want the true God. And many other people are going to join them in hell that is why Jesus said what will it profit a man to gain the whole world and perish. He said repent or perish. It's Heaven or Hell. God is not sitting in heaven saying Let's Make a Deal. He sent his only begotten son to die on the cross as an atonement for sin. John 3:16 You have to take the lifeline and stop the wishful thinking. Start thinking about reading the gospel and living it because it is a way of life. If you can obey the vine which most people aren't willing to then you would be on the straight narrow way to eternal life. Remember that. You have to love the truth. They have a saying, don't go to hell.
Now I'm going to leave you with some scripture
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
