Make My Brother Share The Inheritance

PromiseSeedCDC
Kingdom believers, what is most important to God?  We who have the scriptures know. To love God, follow His commandments, and love your neighbor as your self.  The entire “Law and Prophets” is summed up in this.  But why can’t we put all our desires aside and love God and one another.  We know this is right.  But we just can’t do it.  Some have ask the question “Is #Christmas A pagan Holiday”? Another (Luke 12) ask of the Lord Jesus, “make my brother share the inheritance with me”.  And the Lord answers with a question, “Who made Me judge or arbiter between you and him”.  You see if we know the TRUTH we have our answers. Why would anyone ask such a question concerning Christmas if you love Christ and know all the benefits of his coming. Or, if we know that there should not be any lack among the members of the body of Christ why is one #homeless, one naked, or one hungry? Why does one brother have to beg or prove he is due his inheritance. It is because of greed and the holding on to one’s material possessions. Yes we can share the joy, the love, the faith, the tolerance, but no this building, this #business, the skill, these jobs, these positions, no this is not the inheritance the word is talking about.

I personally don’t have the will to fight for such things. I know the Lord is my provider, and I know He can provide, deliver, and satisfy all my needs. But this does not make me innocent. And also I am not a fool to anyone except for Christ. So I must speak up for the unfortunate, the mute, the deaf, the lame and etc. So I see why the hypocrite would say Christmas is a pagan day. He has a guilty conscience about all the stores he owns at the mall decked out in Santa Clause, Holy, and #HappyHolidays. He gives the pagan, heathen, or what other vile name he can think of his minimum wages for 24/7 and holidays, and he thinks he has done his duty.

I hope someone will read this and know that the same struggles the world has the Church has also. But as believers we live by faith in God. It seems no one wants to acknowledge that all things belong to God. The Lord tells a rich young ruler to sell all your goods and give to the poor. Then in another place the word says no greedy person has any inheritance in the Kingdom of God. We ask and don’t receive because we do not want to spend our possessions on the things that pleases God (James 2).

Many unbelievers give their time and money to care for the needy but do not acknowledge God. As believers we are no better when we weigh down thousands of brothers and sister with rules and rituals that in themselves make void the grace, mercy, freedom, and the inheritance that comes with acknowledging and obeying God. And we believers loose our authority to ask for what is rightfully ours as Children of the King when we do not speak up or stand up for what is right.

It is a new day and light has come into the world to expose the age old evil of the world. The Light will expose the hypocrite and greedy desires of men. Finally believers, study to show yourselves approved before God, a workman rightly dividing the word of truth.

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Grace and Peace from our Heavenly Father, and the Lord Jesus. I am Lezah Rous Edwards (Pen), Promise Seed CDC, Inc at http://livingthepromiseseedlife.net a 501-C-3) tax exempt corporation.

Fifteen More Years

Hi everyone.  Just felt like writing today because I have so much to be thankful for, it would be wrong towards God to keep it to myself.  Hope this helps somebody.

October is special for me because 15 years ago I was¬†challenged with a diagnosis of Kidney Cancer.¬† At that time I put my faith¬†into¬†ACTION and today I am even more rooted in my Savior.¬†It was actually September¬†1999 when I got the news, and a month later before I had my pruning.¬†¬†That’s what I’m calling my surgery because of that word that reminds me that He cuts off every branch that is not bearing fruit so that my other members can bear more fruit.

There is¬†a story in the Bible about a King,¬†Hezakiah, who after being robbed by someone who¬†he had confided in, he got sick. (Communing with,¬†and confiding in¬†the wrong people¬†can rob you of the spirit and make you sick.)¬†¬†He made some kind of¬†medicinal paste out of figs, he prayed, and he asked the Lord for 15 more years.¬† I don’t actually remember asking the Lord for 15 more years but here I am here by¬†His grace and His¬†mercy.

The Lord has given me this time and I am  grateful for this opportunity to share the fruitfulness of growing in His spirit with anyone who has eyes to see, and ears to hear.  I am closer to the Lord because of this experience and more confident of His love towards me because even though I did not ask, He kept me all these years despite my shortcomings and lack of faith.  I can go to Him in prayer or I can read His word.  Which ever way we communicate with our Lord, let us not forget to ask, knock, and seek him above all other, for only He knows the number of our years.

I’m ticked Off!

Here’s my ticker at #empireave, https://www.empireavenue.com/PROMISESEED5. Why I’m ticked off is because at least 10 people should go and follow me, but maybe just one will. And that’s to bad because I’ve come across so many profiles in the social media arena that are begging for attention, and simply are just too lack luster to gain any type of momentum. At EA that’s what the game is all about virtual promotion with virtual money to build real valued social media presence that brings in real money.

I’m a #notforprofit, but I need this more than any other entity on the Ave. Learning how to invest and take risk without the pressure of loosing everything is just plain old #professional development. I’ve been on the Avenue for a little over 6 weeks. Before this I had no idea whether or not I was accomplishing anything, and just hoping someone would like or comment my material. And just to be frank my online donations were zero, facebook was meaningless, twitter had no cherp, and at google I was just going in circles. As a #faithbased not for profit I am into the planting on good ground, and running #missions is my #Promise Seed Brand. EA has increased my social presence at least 30 or 60, and even 100% value in this new network.

This weekend there is a great event for newcomers and newbies at Empire Avenue called #Pendapalooza where the EA Stock Market is on free fall. Again, I’m hoping at least 10 of my #Wordpress followers will follow my ticker and snatch up all this “Free” exposure. Give your social media time spent the added boost to get real clients and meet your goals. You can’t beat free, and you don’t want to “Tick me Off” :-). So here’s my ticker again, follow the link, sign up if this is your first visit, and start seeing some action in your networks. I will feel better and you will also.

The Flame of the Spirit

HappyvalentinesDaypic
Everything reminds me of you
You are water when I am thirsty
Bread when I am hungry
Joy when I am sad
You make me glad…because in you there is,
A time, a place, and a purpose for everything.

The Spirit is the Truth. That’s a simple enough statement. But let me ask this question. Do any of us really remember where we were when we first realized we were loved by someone. Were we alone? Why were we there? The answers to these questions can only be found if one KNOWS that they are loved or have loved someone, something, or a place at some point in time. So, there are many questions that can come from just one statement of truth. But, if we abide in truth, (our questions are answered) and follow it’s principals, we will learn of and know the truth, and the truth will put us in right relationship and in time with our spirit. Truth is absolute, it never changes. It is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

The Flame of the Spirit is Love. You see we can desire many things, people, and places, but it is the unique qualities of each that touches us and cause us to LOVE one over the other. This Valentines’ Day, have you asked yourself what is it about your special love that ignites your passion? And how do you repeat the turning of those sparks into the Flame that does not go out. The Flame of the Spirit is Love. You see Love never dies. The cares and desires apart from love will die, they do not last.

My love has all these qualities…
He knows the right time and place for love
How to turn a flicker into a Flame
As He goes about His business
In gentleness and quiet, Day by Day
Until we are both consumed by a Love for Life
A burning Flame called Eternity…

Turning Dreams Into Action In 2013

It’s been awhile since my last posting, and I really do miss the coherency of having a blog to vent my ideas, successes, and failures.¬† But it’s been all good.¬† For me it’s not about money, (short term money that is). It’s about doing everything that I know is within my God-given abilities.¬† Those things are always available and FREE.

Let me tell you what I’ve been able to accomplish with only $475.00 (less than $500)¬†over the entire year of 2012. I¬†invested in a micro business, upgraded my website and extended it for 6 more¬†months.¬† I¬†supported several¬†local,¬†national and international charities.¬† That’s what the numbers¬†and records say.

Now for¬†the FREE stuff.¬† I have a¬†free profile at facebook, twitter, linkedin, google+, youtube, wordpress, foursquare, flicker, tumbler, slideshare, and probably a few others I have not visited since the last time I posted here.¬†¬†LinkedIn says I have millions in connnections.¬† And there are so many groups that I am a member of that my¬†mailbox is on information overload everyday.¬† I am connected to heads of major corporations and people that have studied at the highest levels of education.¬† I am not timid about connecting.¬† In 2013, using this same title from this post, “Turning Dreams Into Action In 2013, I received more responses from this one post than I got in all of 2012.

Other major responses came from a post unrelated to anything I call the¬†business of “giving back”.¬†¬†¬†That let’s me know it’s about passion, participating in sport, leisure, resting in the joy of the Lord, laying it all down, not holding anything back, because everything belongs to the Lord.

In 2013 I’m letting go of pride. And I’m acknowledging my integrity as a believer in the Lord.¬† I know what I desire is not just getting money and giving it away to the poor. It’s about using all that I know I’m not using up to my potential because of little things like laziness, boredom, and pity¬†parties.¬† Wanting things to be perfect and worrying about what others think.¬† That takes up a lot of time! And I am sick of it. It’s just BS!

Everything I do is about my hopes, and dreams.¬† Everything has a place and I’m the one that knows where best to put it.¬† The Lord is going to use my life to do something great whether I like it or not!¬†¬†So I¬†am going to experience¬†what His love for me is. And people are going to know Him through knowing me.¬† I’m not holding nothing back.¬† Deceit and greed is going to be exposed, and if it shows up in me, so be it, as long as a moment doesn’t turn into a lifetime, and a lifetime into eternity.

That takes me back to those millions of connections LinkedIn says I have and the Klout score I get just for getting a comment or two from someone who is suppose to be somebody because of their salary, or position.¬† Is there anywhere in the world that men and women have not been exposed as addicts of pride and pleasure.¬† (I’m not going to change, even if it kills me.¬† And not only that I don’t care if the next generation has no one to tell them about the prosperity in giving and that this is what matters.)

I’m glad I borrowed this opportunity to write these words.¬† I believe my dream will wait on me, because I believe God, that he¬†has set eternity in my heart and¬†He¬†has credited righteousness unto me so¬†I may ¬†write for a generation yet unborn.¬† That is the “Promise Seed”, not in my time or season, but in His time when he tells His-story¬†of me.¬† Until next time…..keep knocking, the Lord will pour out a blessing you will not have room to receive.
