5-13-2013-JESUS AMONG SINNERS-DRINKING AND EATING


MATTHEW 11: 19 = THE SON OF MAN, (JESUS, YAH'SHUA,) CAME EATING AND DRINKING, AND THEY SAY, BEHOLD, A MAN GLUTTONESS AND A WINEBIBBER, A FRIEND OF PUBLICANS AND SINNERS. BUT WISDOM, IS JUSTIFIED OF HER CHILDREN.


"REMARKS"

THIS SCRIPTURE ALWAYS REMINDS ME NOT TO PREJUDGE SITUATIONS BASED ON OUTWARD APPEARANCES ONLY. SOMETIMES THINGS DON'T LOOK AS THOUGH THEY DO AND CAN BE A STUMBLING BLOCK.

JESUS, YAH'SHUA, HIMSELF SAID, I DIDN'T COME TO CALL THE RIGHTEOUS, BUT SINNERS TO REPENTANCE, IN MATTHEW 9: 13.

WHY SPEND TIME WITH THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY MADE WHOLE, THROUGH SALVATION, WHAT BENEFIT CAN BE PASSED ON TO THEM EXCEPT, FOR MORE LEARNING AND ENCOURAGEMENT, TO STAY THE COURSE OF FAITH.

WHEN I READ, "NO ONE CAN COME TO JESUS, YAH'SHUA, UNLESS THE FATHER, YHA'WEH, DRAWS THEM", AND WHEN I READ, " THE CARNAL MAN CANNOT RECEIVE THE SPIRITUAL THINGS OF GOD, YAH'WEH," I KEEP ASKING MYSELF, WHY DO I SING THE GOSPEL, TO PEOPLE WHO COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE GOSPEL? 

ALTHOUGH I STILL DO SING THE GOSPEL ON SATURDAYS, SINCE THIS IS A HOLY DAY, THE SABBATH AND NOT TO BE DEFILED BY SECULAR MUSIC AND ACTIVITIES OF THIS WORLD.  SINGING THE GOSPEL IS STILL BENEFICIAL TO THOSE WHO KNOW GOD, YAH'WEH, AND JESUS, YAH'SHUA, BUT ON OTHER DAYS, I WILL TRY TO REACH THE LOST, WITH A SEED PLANTED, WHEN I AM GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY. IF GOD, YAH'WEH, HAPPENS TO CONVICT THE SOUL OF ONE LOST, THEN AWESOME IS GODS, YAH'WEHS, GRACE TO DO SO.

IF GOD, YAH'WEH, THE FATHER, IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DRAW PEOPLE TO JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND IF NO ONE CAN COME TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND IF THE CARNAL, THE FLESH MINDED MAN, CAN'T ACCEPT THE THINGS OF GOD, YAH'WEH, WHY DO I CAST THE PEARLS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, YAH'WEH, TO THE SWINE, THE CARNAL MAN, AND HE SNEAR AT ME AND CURSE ME, ALL THE WHILE I AM SINGING ABOUT JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AT MY CONCERT ARENA, N ENNIS, TEXAS, NEXT TO WAL MART?

THEN I REMEMBER HOW JESUS, YAH'SHUA, TURNED THE TABLES AND INSTEAD OF TRYING TO REACH THE CARNAL MAN WITH THE GOSPEL, AS A SET APART TYPE OF INDIVIDUAL, HE JUST JOINED THEM AND WHILE IN THEIR MIST, TOLD GREAT AND HEART WARMING STORIES, AS PARABLES OR THE SUCH.

THIS IS HOW I APPROACH THE LOST AND CARNAL MAN ON MOST OF MY CONCERTS NOW, WITH HIS EXAMPLE OF HOW TO REACH THE LOST AND CARNAL MAN, AS A FRIEND, NOT SOMEONE WHOM HE FEELS WILL CONDEMN HIM, BUT SHARE THE LOVE OF GOD, YAH'WEH, WITH HIM.

SO, I HAVE DECIDED TO BE WISE AS A SERPENT AND HARMLESS AS A DOVE, BY DOING SECULAR TYPE MUSIC AT MY CONCERTS AND PLANTING SEEDS OF THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, YAH'WEH, N AN UNSUSPECTING WAY.

I DO IT BY GIVING AWAY THE FREE CDS OF THE SECULAR MUSIC I AM DOING, WHETHER COUNTRY, OR OLDIES, OR ELVIS, OR SINATRA, AND INSIDE EVERY CD GIVEN AWAY, I PUT A CD OF THE GOSPEL OF JOHN IN WITH IT, THAT SAYS ON THE CD, "THE WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE" AND "JUST BELIEVE".

MY HOPE IS THAT AS I PLANT THE SEED AND WATER IT, OR SOMEONE ELSE WATER IT, GOD, YAH'WEH, WILL GIVE IT THE INCREASE, ACCORDING TO HIS WILL AND PURPOSE.

MY DESIRE IS TO REACH THE LOST AND CARNAL MAN, AND NOT CONTINUE TO CATER TO THE LOST AND CARNAL MAN, WITH GOSPEL MUSIC HE DOESN'T WANT TO HEAR. TRAP HIM WITH THE SECRET POWER OF THE GOSPEL OF JOHN, THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND HOPE HE WILL LISTEN TO CD AND ESPECIALLY THE OPENING WORDS.

I HAVE STRUGGLED WITH THIS FOR QUITE A WHILE AND WITH THE PERMISSION OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA, HIMSELF, THROUGH THE CASTING OF LOTS, I GOT THE AFFIRMATIVE ANSWER TO DO THIS YEARS AGO, BUT NEVER REALLY DID MUCH WITH IT, THOUGH I DID SOME RESTAURANTS WITH THE SAME THOUGHT IN MIND, AND IT SEEMED TO BE EFFECTIVE.

I JUST CAN'T GO ON TRYING TO FORCE GOD, YAH'WEH, AND JESUS, YAH'SHUA, ON ANYONE WHO DOESN'T WANT TO BE CONFRONTED BY HIM, FACE TO FACE, BUT MAYBE IN THE SILENCE OF HIS HOME, OR AUTO, HE WILL ALLOW THE GOSPEL OF JOHN CD I PLANTED WITH THE SECULAR CD, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, HE WILL FEEL THE DESIRE TO LISTEN TO IT AND MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, GOD, YAH'WEH, WILL DRAW HIM TO JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND HE WILL ACCEPT JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AS HIS LORD AND SAVIOR.

AS JESUS, YAH'SHUA, SAID WHEN HE WAS ACCUSED OF WRONGDOING IN THE COMPANY OF SINNERS, WISDOM IS JUSTIFIED BY HER CHILDREN.

THERE IS A TIME FOR EVERYTHING, A TIME TO BE BOLD AND A TIME TO BE MEEK, A TIME TO LAUGH, A TIME TO WEEP, A TIME TO DANCE AND A TIME TO MOURN, A TIME TO KEEP SILENT AND A TIME TO SPEAK, AND A TIME TO LOVE AND A TIME TO HATE.
