steve harvey

i heard steve harvey preaching the other day.... and wow
you know most preachers don't do what steve harvey did...
its not about knowing scriptures its what you do with the scriptures...
steve harvey said that your passion will never get you anywhere its your gift that makes room for you (Proverbs 18:16)
for example my passion is dancing.... but i know that i am not getting on American Best Dance Crew anytime soon
However my gift is writing.... I can make up any story from the top of my head and that is the gift that God has given me... But my passion won't take me past my door step

Steve Harvey said that your gift is what you can do without even thinking about it
But know your gift and that gift will make room for you in front of great men

coming right away

When the spirit of the Lord comes down
we must prophecy we must sow our lives to the glory of Christ
When the spirit of the Lord comes down
we must dream dream we must foresee and have visions

I see the Lord coming down with clouds of fire
the whole shakes at His arrival
the whole earth quakes at the glory of the King
I see the Lord His glory fills the sanctuary
and all the people want to tarry in the presence of the King

when the spirit of the Lord comes down
we must glorify we must testify that Jesus is Christ
when the spirit of the Lord comes down
we must worship him we must praise his name forever

Jesus is not coming soon
His coming right away
and He will only choose
those who are clean

His coming for a spotless Bride
and those who forgive
Tell your neighbors and your friends
His coming right away His coming right away

story idea

in the midst of the blackest darkness comes the brightest star. But here in the darkest darkness Vida doesn't feel like anyone can see her, hear her, or knows where she is. Vida is sitting in a pitch dark room. The room has a bed and a toilet but Vida can't see anything...

watching tv

what is it about watching tv that causes one to be so captured
you can sit in front of tv for hours at a time
but try reading a book or doing something and there is a problem
all of a sudden you get fidgety and you can't concentrate
you think of a thousand other things you could be doing
so what happens when we are not watching tv?
do we fill our day with random occurrences
by passing the roses on the road
waiting for the moment in which we plump back down on the chair and watch tv.
what is it about the minimal that takes prevalence over the maximal
we find a way to do the least and get the most
and as such we never are able fully appreciate what we get because we never place any effort
but we are really good at watching tv
doesn't that mean something?

the start of death

Though my posts about the Bible are not going to follow any type of order i thought it would be cool to start with the book of Genesis. Let's look at;

A) Genesis 1:28b "and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
B) Genesis 2:17 "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."
C) Genesis 3:1-6 the serpent tempted eve and she ate the fruit

In scripture A, man is meant to have dominion over everything, this dominion was given to them by God. The reason i place in red "over ever creeping thing" is because Eve had dominion over the creeping thing (serpent) and 1. wasn't meant to talk to it 2. shouldn't obey it. Imagine a king listening to talking pig on matters of the country (it makes no sense right). Someone in dominion shouldn't be listening to an animal. So the first sin was that Eve didn't show dominion the second sin was that she ate the apple both of these sins were sins of disobedience.

Now in scripture B, the sentence is interesting because most people read it this way "on the same day the eat the fruit they should die" but lets unpack the sentence:
King James Version: For in the day thou eatest thereof thou shalt die. If we use the synonym of "thereof", which is"thence"or "therefrom" so replacing with these words it reads
For in the day thou east therefrom or thence. So basically the sentence means because the eat the fruit they will die, however it never specifies when they will die but in Genesis 5:5 Adam dies.

So because of sin we have to die, but "whosoever believes in Jesus will not die but have everlasting life" John 3:16b, this everlasting life continues after death (flesh). Our spirits never die but our flesh does. And that is the start of death.

P.S. i am not a Bible scholar just someone that loves God.
