Why Christians Die Early and How To Live Longer, God's Way

For many years, church people have listened to sermons about faith, preached by ministers who claimed they were men or women of faith; however, the problem we try to ponder is why so many people within the body of Christ die early.   Of course, we should not not worry about this issue, but because we care so much about our Godly family, we cannot help but cry out to God and have His answer revealed to us of the reason for early deaths.   However, we know the answer, if it is not lacking in righteousness, it could be bad eating habits, discreet alcohol, cigarette and drug habits.   Lord, we want to do things your way and many of us enjoy life, but-let us deal with reality of why people of God die before it is there time to transcend to God's life.  It is time to learn how to live longer, God's way and not according to our own understanding and satisfaction.

God did not give us life to end it early, He gave us life to enjoy, but one of the most important things we must realize is this, we cannot live life, just to please ourselves, we must make a decision to please and serve only God.   Therefore our own desires should not be relevant.   So, that is your first step, because the Bible says, 'Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you.' -Matthew 6:33   A lot of born again believers do not take that particular scriptures, but it is very important to God and this has been the main key, a lot of us have lacked  in our lives, sometime or another.   It is time to take responsibility to where we have fallen short in our own lives.   So, we must give our full attention toward God, regardless of marriage, work, school, children, success, poverty, any issue that is taken the focus off of God, we need to give it all to Him, so that He will acknowledge those issues are irrelevant in our spiritual relationships.

Are you depressed a lot pondering about those who died early and you knew they were saved? Yes?  Give it to God and accept reality, now it is time you make sure you do whatever it is necessary to live longer while abiding by the rules of God's Kingdom.

Next, what you think is not a sin could be a sin.   A lot of controversial issues we discuss today may not ever rest, because the fact is, those particular issues that are mostly discussed are chosen over God.   If it is controversial, it must be a sin.

Another thing, how well do we take care of our minds.  We have just told you how to take care of your souls, but-do you realize our souls are many times controlled by the way we think.   What do you give your mind to?   Is God on your mind or is your focus on an attractive man or woman, you just got to have?   You must make a choice now to get anything like lust off of your mind, because, if not, it will control the decisions you make in your life, which could destroy your body.

You must learn how to take care of your body, but if you do not take care of your souls, your mind, then your body will be destroyed, regardless of the healthy meals you eat, proper exercise and vitamin supplements.  Learn this fact, 'the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.' -Romans 6:23   

Anita Wooten-Francis Fired for Praying in Brooklyn School

It's very horrible that this woman of God was fired for not only praying in school, but just for the fact of being a child of God.   God told us in His Word we would be persecuted and He acknowledges each and every situation with face that tries to separate from the love of God.   When we are persecuted like Anita Wooten-Francis, the trial only reveal how close in a relationship with are to Jesus Christ and it does not matter that Satan does not like it.

Anita Wooten-Francis of Brookly, NY. was fired for praying on her job.  She was an assistant teacher for a special education school and has dealt with her experience of being harassed for being a Christian since 2004.  Principal George Andrews told her she was going to have to stop praying in his school, according to AToast2Wealth.com.

God's Expectancy of Men and Women To Be Holy

What does it mean to be holy?   It means for you to live a lifestyle of holiness, a part from the world.  In this wicked age, God is calling for each and every last one of us to be holy and that is in mind body and soul.   Many so-call Pentecostal churches who claim they are full gospel, are no longer holy and pastors, bishops and evangelists, no longer preach righteousness.   It is sort of like a household with parents and children and as you know in most households, children are ruling their parents, these days; therefore, in the a lot of full gospel churches, members are ruling their pastors, simply because rather than to lose tithes and offerings, they would rather spoil their souls, even if it means opposing God's commandments in His Word.  God is angry, because leaders are not taking their positions they claim they have been called to hold.   In the 21st Century, God will reveal his wrath not just against America, but all other nations who ignore His authority.

God is a loving God, but if men and women refuse to obey Him, he gets angry, because they are not loving Him back.   For too long, God has been taken advantage of, by people who want to live their lives how they want to live it, not how God wants them to live it.   Many ministers have coward spirits today and they will not tell congregants they should live holy, not only for money, but also for recognition.  Yes, these preachers who are guilty and are so caught up on recognition, they are scared to be hated, so they would rather be liked by fans, instead of doing what God requires of them.   
Rebellion is taking control in the souls of many people in the church, because they refuse to seek God's approval, but rather seek the world's approval.  The Bible instructs each and every soul to be holy: 'Be Ye Holy for I am Holy' (I Peter 1:16).   Members of the church who wants their pastor's approval on sin, are many times, the ones who give a lot of tithes and offerings.   These pastors and any other sort of preacher, live off of what is given to their ministry, so they refrain from making their wealthy members unhappy while preaching out of God's Word.   They spoil these members who are hypocrites.  What are hypocrites? Hypocrites are those who say they are a Christian, but they are sinning while displeasing God.  Hypocrites live double lives and do not have clean souls.   Hypocrites say they love God, but please the Devil.   Hypocrites are those who live according to the ways of the world.   We see it in our and hear it in our gospel music and see it in gospel music artists' concerts, we see it in our conferences and even on a Sunday morning when we go to get a Word from the Lord, in a night club atmosphere.  We cannot live double lives and expect to make it to heaven.   Therefore, if men and women are not holy, then how in the world do they expect for their children to be holy?   As a parent, how can you expect for your child to obey you, when you tell them it is wrong to be gay or lesbian?   This is why we are seeing and hearing about children who are coming out of the closet as homosexuals.   Parents are not living holy lives.   Their minds are like children and so children get an understanding who is in control and it is not their parents.   Satan begins to move into the household, because there has been no example of pure holiness.   

How can you say you are holy and righteous and you look, act, dress and even talk like the world?   You even see this sort of carnality with famous preachers and these are the biggest hypocrites.   They preach it is wrong to look holy (for women to keep their dresses down and bosoms covered and for men to keep their pants up), claiming that God is not concerned about appearance.   Yes, he is.  God is very concerned about appearance.   Once we come a part of the body of Christ, he wants us to show the light of Jesus Christ.  For instance, an ex-prostitute should not look a prostitute once she is saved and delivered from selling her body.   An ex-homosexual should not look like a homosexual, if he or she has been delivered from homosexuality.   Therefore, there ought to be a standard of dress code as well as strict regulations in the way we conduct ourselves, so the world will know what it is to be clean and how wonderful it is to be different.

Bishop Eddie Long's Case Has Ended In Settlement

If you have been following the story on our sister site, AToast2Wealth.com, you will realize that it has been a very long time since the story, regarding Bishop Eddie Long's misconduct  in his ministry at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church shocked the nation with four allegation lawsuits from four young men who claim he sexually molested them.   The Bishop managed to pay off all four of his alleged victims and settled their claims behind doors.   Both attorneys have agreed that both parties cannot ever speak about this case of sexual allegations, ever again and their cases were dismissed with prejudice.

We cannot understand why the case was dismissed with prejudice, because each and every last one of those alleged victims should have been able to discuss their past molestations with Bishop Eddie Long to release their emotional pain.   Is seems like they will be in some sort of emotional slavery for the rest of their lives.   Bishop Long got off easy in the eyes of the public, but-in the eyes of God, he will not get off easy unless he repents and no longer ever involves himself with any sort of homosexual relationships with either young boys or even grown men.

Let us continue to pray not only for all four of these alleged young men who brought their cases against Bishop Eddie Long, but also for Bishop Eddie Long that he finds peace and fully submits his mind, heart and soul to God.   We do not want Bishop Eddie Long to be lost, eternally, but we desire for Bishop Eddie Long to make it to heaven without ever having to look back on his past flaws and sins.
