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, sober, and vigilant - 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.
There are some things on my site that are my opinion or my own research. I must say, I see some things coming into play that have affected my views on some things; even things I have already shared here.
Tip: 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐤 𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐛𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐰𝐢𝐬𝐝𝐨𝐦 𝐨𝐫 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐥𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐛𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐲𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝'𝐬 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫.
If you're silent, you aren't supporting anything and complicit.
If you're speaking up, you are supporting the cause incorrectly.
If you're spreading positivity, you are ignorant to the world around you.
If you are a realist, people ask why are you so negative.
If you're for protesting, you're for violence.
If you're against rioting, you're more worried about property than lives.
If you believe black lives matter, you don't think all live matter.
If you believe all lives matter, then black lives don't matter.
If you believe blue lives matter, you support corruption.
One could go on and on with examples.
Basically, no matter what you say or support, 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐠𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐨𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞.
It's genius to have people divided that way, really.
𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐜𝐭 so that we'll gobble up any "hero" they throw at us.
I have made so many posts exposing evil over the years.
Now you have the worldly "exposing" the worldly. So much "truth" coming to light and truth speakers coming out of the wood work.
Evil was already exposed by the bible long ago.
It took me a while to learn that. I didn't realize years ago when I was exposing certain "evils", I was feeding the beast we are currently experiencing (false light and so many people becoming "enlightened"). I am doing my very best to stay Kingdom Minded and remembering it's a battle for the mind.
The world cannot expose the world.
The world is going to world no matter what "truth" is revealed. It will just "world" in a different way and we'll need "saving" from that, too.
So take people's opinions on the Word of God with a grain of salt and TEST EVERYTHING.
So here's a HUGE disclaimer! How people respond to information is up to them. It's my prayer that it's taken and used to prepare mentally, physically, and spiritually.
ℳℴ𝓈𝓉 𝒾𝓂𝓅ℴ𝓇𝓉𝒶𝓃𝓉𝓁𝓎, test the information. Test it all.
**I may not agree with e͟v͟e͟r͟y͟t͟h͟i͟n͟g 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. I am humbled and corrected at times and pray to remain teachable, myself.**
There is no need to become a "follower" of ANYONE unless you test them yourself against the Word of God.
This is my disclaimer for ALL things you read/listen to. There is no ONE person who has everything 100% right. Pray for discernment.
"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
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.
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.

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!
To be crystal clear:
I serve and worship the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The One who delivered us from literal Egypt and spiritual Egypt. It is by the shed blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I will be able to stand before the Most High. The Living God. The Alpha and the Omega who is and who was and who is to come. I do not serve the same god as other religions! The Living God is not a religion. 1 Corinthians 3:16 "Do you not know that you are 𝗚𝗼𝗱’𝘀 𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?" 2 Thess 2:3-4 "Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗚𝗼𝗱, proclaiming himself to be God. Have we for too long ignored the spiritual aspect of where the enemy seeks to seat himself? Between our ears and in our hearts? It's a battle for your mind, body, and soul.
God bless and keep you all. To God be the glory forever and ever.
