Seek Him or face His wrath

Prosperity Gospel is fast food but the true Gospel is fresh fruit. Let me explain. As a plant-based eater, I’ve realized there is a healthy and an unhealthy way of eating.

In America, the prosperity Gospel is microwaveable. Meaning it’s never fresh and recycled often. It’s convenient, easy to access, cheap, and watered down of nutrients. In comparison to feel-good preachers, after their sermons are finished you feel “fed” but do you ever question, “Why am I not full?” That is prosperity Gospel. In the moment you feel better and “enjoyed” your meal. However, since you have not eaten the proper nutrients (heard the true Gospel) you are now hungry minutes later.

We should never feel satisfied with not knowing the Gospel but so many men are. Many do not think about God because they are worried about wordle, video games, sports, and politics.

I was watching a clip from Paul Washer titled,
“An urgent message for Young Christian Men” Washer told the audience that we men were not born in a culture that creates strength but encourages the average man to be weak. He goes on to say, “You’re going to have to live in Scripture. I so often hear these young men talking, and talking, and talking, but they cannot stand. And they do not stand because they do not kneel. In the study of Scripture and prayer.”

I grew up around passiveness. I don’t know too many Biblical Christian men that are my blood family. I have seen their ways and I was never impressed or sadly enough, didn’t feel like I was talking to a man of God. However, I had to learn that some Christians are for the culture, not christ. They love fast food and despise fresh fruit because they are too comfortable living an unfulfilled life.

Therefore, when you lack the knowledge you are destroyed (Hosea
I can’t blame anyone but myself. I forgive them and go out to seek The Most High for the truth.

With that being said, I’ve realized the Saint must walk alone. A.W. Tozer once said,
“The man who has passed on into the divine Presence in actual inner experience will not find many who understand him. A certain amount of social fellowship will, of course, be his as he mingles with religious persons in regular activities of the church, but true spiritual fellowship will be hard to find.” (The Saint must walk alone, A.W Tozer)

The walk with God is not easy. So many are scared, never received the true Gospel, never spilled their soul to a spiritual adviser, preacher, or biblical counselor, and truly, do not appreciate fresh fruit (The Gospel).

Instead, when faced with the truth they run.  Years go by and now they are in their 40, 50, or 60’s no better than Homer Simpson drinking cheap beer and staying stagnant in his ignorance. I was raised that if I didn’t know something to look it up! That’s it! However, now I understand why!

I cannot relate to many fellow “men”. I cannot understand their language and why they are so giddy and excited all of the time. I often question, do they see what I see? But only God knows!

The average man has no goals, ambition, drive, or desire to hear God.

◾He’s comfortable bragging amongst his “Christian” buddies.
◾He’s comfortable swearing out in public, He’s comfortable just posting cute Christian quotes.
◾He’s comfortable being a drunkard.
◾He’s comfortable, not changing! He is addicted to fast food (prosperity gospel) instead of understanding the benefits of fresh fruit. (The Gospel).

I can not be like this. Yesterday, I moaned and groaned that my back was in pain so I decided to lay around feeling sorry for myself. I was 100% wrong because I let the enemy get to me. Therefore, I repented and asked Him to forgive me!

I didn’t say, “Oh well, I’m tired of always getting fresh fruit. It’s too time-consuming going to the store (making time for God). I just wanna’ lay around and fast food (Not read His word, be lazy, eat Chipotle all day, and then complain that I don’t feel His presence).

I cannot let my fellow man stumble in this disgusting and evil world! Respectfully, I must privately pull them to the side and let them know they are living in sin because I am bought by Christ, not the world! Little boys hide their words because they are afraid of confrontation but men of God stand firm. Even if they are standing firm alone!

Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” I can’t live with myself if I didn’t tell my fellow man that you’re lukewarm ways will lead to death, not true salvation.

Us Millennials and Gen-Z men have a better understanding of mental health than previous generations, which is amazing. However, we need a deeper understanding of the Gospel.

◾It will save you much trouble of wondering if homosexuality is a sin (because it is)
◾ It will save you the trouble of wondering if porn is a sin (because it is)
◾It will save you the trouble if you are wondering, should you tell your kids that Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the tooth fairy are real because lying is a sin.

After I was baptized I foolishly thought all my problems will go away. I was wrong. My walk with God is every day. Not when I feel like it. Somedays I don’t want to pray, fast, repent or surrender to His will but since I am born again, He lives in me. My body is a vessel for His will and since I’m bought by Christ, I must obey Him at all times. And when I sin I must repent immediately!

Men today are too emotional. A man will make irrational decisions that will cause him to be arrested, killed, or taken advantage of if he follows his heart because the heart is deceitful ( scripture)

Man is allowed to have feelings and emotions but man is not allowed to take it out on his wife, his co-workers, friends, or family. He must take his feelings to the altar and leave them there.

I can feel the shift changing with this blog. Many will not like what I am writing but I do not care because this is not my home. This is all temporary. God is using me as a vessel to preach His word, not to please man and woman. He wants me to seek fresh fruit daily and stay on His path. With that being said, men, will you continue to eat fast food or consume fresh fruit? Will you blame others and become emotional? The choice is yours!
