Awake vs. Woke

Updated: Dec 27, 2021

Awake vs. Woke Awake: You see things for the way they really are. Woke: You see things for the way you want them to be. - Nicholson1968


How can we say we KNOW anything when they lie monumentally about EVERYTHING?

Seek Jesus. The only Truth. Many things are happening concurrently and way too fast to get fixated on one thing.

Lord give us discernment.

I don't want to be woke. I want to be awake - even if it's the painful truth.


Throughout my site, I have shared many links and videos. Let's be clear about something.


We can split hairs on where you or I agree and disagree with each of the individuals. Seems basic to understand that these days there is no one person with all the answers. It's exhausting.

Well, there's never been any one person that has all the answers. So there's that.

 

**I may not agree with everything from the content I share from other people and they may not agree with me. Apply critical thinking and use discernment to come to your own conclusions regarding the content in videos/links.**

 

"With lies, falsehoods, and fear - a mockery is being made out of society as a whole. No longer can two minds meet based on reason and logic." -TheBigsib

 

Please read all disclaimers on my home page.


As fallible men, we share information and our understanding to the best of our ability.

This place is a mess, and it's by design. Some choose not to focus on the messy scary things, some of us face it head on.


Men's hearts will fail them from fear; the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field that the LORD God had made.

Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. False christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. He who endures to the end shall be saved.


There is much confusion in the church about the "end times". Some people are well meaning. Others are speaking from pride and arrogance. Some may be right. Many are probably wrong. This is why you should ALWAYS take it to the Lord in prayer and read the Bible for yourself.

Don't let your zeal turn you into a zealot.

Don't allow your passion to strip you of your compassion.

Be careful not to let your knowledge knock you off the ledge of the cornerstone of love.

Stay in the awareness of humility or else you will be abruptly humbled when you stumble into your rightfully earned humiliation.

-J.S.


Ask me before you assume.

I want us all to learn and grow from each other.


I change my mind about a lot.


I know there is much theology, teachings, and denominations to sift through right now; this is why I always say work out your salvation with fear and trembling. We have so many questions on how and why God did something in the past and even presently how and why He's doing things. It's ok to have questions! Ask God.

With delusion and confusion amok, I hold close 1 Corinthians 1.

Cling to Christ whether you are amillennial, premillennial, post millennial, or even preterist...Each position can be deceived, some more than others.

Here is a link to read the short chapter for yourself. There is a drop down menu to read it in the translation you prefer. ► https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Corinthians%201&version=ESV


But this very thing I'm about to share below is Christ, not religion. We preach Christ! Christ came to die for all and I will share below WHY Christ died for all. A hell-fire message is what brought me to Christ initially; I was scared to go to hell.

But in my relationship with Christ, through prayer and study, I stay with Christ and will never look back because of what He did for me. No one will ever love me to that degree. God wants fellowship with us. He is my best friend that will never leave or forsake me.

If you find yourself asking the question: "How do I know I am chosen by God?" The answer is simple. Believe on Christ Jesus and that is how you know! Repent, the Kingdom of God is at hand.


Every knee will bow. Every tongue will confess. Christ Jesus is Lord! A living God who stepped down from heaven to pay our sin debt...that is worthy to be praised! Thank You Most High God for that gift and giving me peace that surpasses the understanding of the carnal minded. Thank You for Your grace, mercy, and patience.

 

This is something I won't change my mind about:


Is being a good person and doing good deeds enough to go to heaven to stand before a 𝐇𝐨𝐥𝐲, 𝐏𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐑𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐞𝐨𝐮𝐬 God?


Who is good?

Who does good deeds at all times?

Who has a clean mind at all times? 𝐍𝐨𝐭 𝐦𝐞!


None is righteous, no, not one.


Can you imagine standing before the Creator of all things with just our works and good deeds? God forbid.


𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐲 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭 𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐰𝐚𝐲 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐅𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫. Trying to 'get in' any other way makes one a thief or a robber. For it is by grace you have been saved through faith in Christ our Messiah (𝐩𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐬𝐞 𝐆𝐨𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐇𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐲), and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God, not by works, 𝐬𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐧𝐨 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐛𝐨𝐚𝐬𝐭.


For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life. The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. Romans 3, Ephesians 2, 1 Corinthians 2


And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you. Matthew 10, Matthew 7


Much love to you if we agree, disagree...I don't care. I love errrybody. I take what everyone has to say and tuck in my brain filing cabinet and test all things. I appreciate what EVERYONE brings to the table!


God bless and keep you all. To God be the glory forever and ever.
