Originally the title of this Blog was, “Do You Have Courage?” The more I wrote the more I realized “Courage” was not the issue. I had titled this that because it is so amazing to me what people call “Courage” nowadays. I had even wrote a Blog Posted 10-11-2014 titled, “People must stop calling FEAR brave.” Now “Caitlyn Jenner Receives ESPY Arthur Ashe Award for Courage.” (Article posted @ Facebook and Twitter)
The dictionary in my iPhone gives definitions from multiple sources and the first for “Courage” was, “The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery.” The second for “Courage” was, “the power or quality of dealing with or facing danger, fear, pain, etc.” The Bible’s Definition for “Courage” is “Standing and Acting on Truth:”
“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)
“Fear not” is the “Standing,” “doth go with thee” is the “Acting” and “will not fail thee” is the Truth. The children of Israel did not go into the Promise Land God had Promised them because they did not have “Courage.” The children of Israel’s children went into the Promise Land. The children of Israel died in the wilderness, which was around 1,200,000. Only Joshua and Caleb of the children of Israel went into the Promise Land:
“And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it. Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” (Numbers 13:27-33)
First of all satan wants All of us to spend Eternity in Hell with him. Our Mind is his playground. All he needs is a planted seed. Everything we see, hear and feel plants seeds. He knows how to take an inch and turn it into a mile. He knows how to bring a seed to fruition, which is what he did with Bruce Jenner.
If Bruce Jenner had “Courage” this would have been the scenario, “I know God made me a man so I am a man, but some days I feel like and want to be a woman. I know God made me a man so the feel like and want to be a woman must be satan attacking my mind to destroy me by trying to get me to do something that will cause me to spend Eternity in Hell with him. I am Standing on the Truth that God made me a man and that is the way I will be until Jesus comes.”
“Giving In” is NOT courage. “Surrendering” is NOT courage. “Not Fighting” is NOT courage. “Succumbing” is NOT courage.
I said in my “People must stop calling FEAR brave” Blog for 29-year-old Brittany Maynard “Courage” would have been, “‘The devil is a liar! I refuse to give him me. He is going to have to take me. ‘I AM’ a Grade 4 Glioblastoma Brain Cancer survivor!! He is not going to get me without a fight!!!’”
It is one thing when satan beats us. NO ONE is exempt for him. We have all been in his hands. It is a whole other ball park when we give him the victory. Bruce Jenner and Brittany Maynard gave him the victory.
I can add “Courage” to the list in my “God’s Process (Posted at this Website)” Blog Posted 5-6-2015 to the things people get from “God’s Process.” It takes “Courage” to do our Acts of Faith. It takes “Courage” to believe in the Invisible. Jesus dying on The Cross was “True Courage.” “Faith” is a byproduct of “Courage.” Jesus had “Courage” to die on The Cross because “Standing and Acting on Truth” He knew God would raise Him on the “Third Day.”
The Real Issue is people are Rejecting Truth. There CANNOT be no more Truth than a penis or a vagina. God took Eve from Adam, which means all of us are masculine and feminine. That is why God gave men and women different sexual organs so we would know the difference. When a baby is born the first thing the doctor does is look at the baby’s sexual organ. The doctor does not say leave the sex blank to let them decide what sex they are.
People having the Truth of a penis or vagina should NEVER “Debate” or have a “Battle” within themselves or a “Conversation” with satan about their sexuality. If people are doing any of those things they are Rejecting Truth and do not know what Truth is. If people still do not know if they are a man or woman having the Truth of a penis or vagina then “NOTHING” will be Truth to them. Rejecting the simple Truth of a penis and vagina is what homosexuality is too. People that applaud people for Rejecting Truth are Rejecting Truth themselves.
Since our Mind is satan’s playground it is so important to Renew our Mind daily in the Word of God to keep satan from attacking our Mind. He does not what people in the Bible because he knows that is how people get Truth. The Word of God is what Jesus used against satan:
“And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.” (Luke 4:3-4, 12-13)
Truth is Manifestation. The Bible is Truth because when Jesus died on The Cross and Rose on the Third Day that Manifestation made the Bible Truth. People’s excuse for not believing the Bible is Truth is it was written by men. God works through His Children and is why we have Purposes. Nothing is falling out of Heaven. Jesus did not fall out of Heaven. He was Born.
Jesus is our Example for God’s Process. When He died on The Cross He fulfilled His Purpose. God’s Process is how people get to their Purpose and prove the Bible is Truth. God’s Process causes people to live out the Bible, which in turn cause their life to be a Manifestation of the Bible and cause the Bible to become Truth Again. When people are in the Word of God daily, have a relationship with God through the Holy Spirit and Live the Bible they have Truth in them and recognize what is Truth. People not having Truth in them is why people do NOT take the Bible as Truth.
People must recognize Truth more than ever because we live in a world where people Rejecting Truth like Obama and the Supreme Court are forcing people to follow their Rejection of the Truth. People need “Courage” more than ever for “Standing and Acting on Truth.” With that same-sex marriage door WIDE OPEN things are only going to keep getting worse and worse. It has already BEGUN!!! “New normal” is what was stated in the article, “FBI says it thwarted Islamic State-inspired July 4 attacks.” Articles like, “Gunman identified in shooting deaths of 4 Marines at Tennessee Navy facility” are going to be common place, which states: (Both Article posted @ Facebook and Twitter)
The gunman who shot and killed four Marines Thursday during two attacks at military facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn., has been identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a law enforcement source confirmed to Fox News.
Abdulazeez, 24, was born in Kuwait, a U.S. official told Fox. It was not immediately clear if he was a U.S. or Kuwaiti citizen. He was reported to be from Hixson, Tenn., just across the river from Chattanooga.
The law enforcement source said preliminary reports indicate Abdulazeez, who also died, was not on the FBI’s radar leading up to Thursday’s attacks. The circumstances of his death were not immediately disclosed.
The gunman first shot up a recruiting center before driving to the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center and killing four Marines before he was shot, authorities said. Sources told Fox News police chased the gunman from the recruiting center to the Center, where the killings took place.
A well-placed source in Chattanooga told Fox News that one of the Marines who was killed was a “decorated war hero with two Purple Hearts.” The youngest was 19 years old, the source said.
“We are treating this as an act of domestic terrorism,” said Bill Killian, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee.
I applaud Linda Barnette! She is who the writer is talking about in the article, “‘I am a follower of Christ’: County clerk resigns rather than issue gay marriage licenses.” (Article posted @ Facebook and Twitter) That is the kind of “Standing and Acting on Truth” people must have. People took same-sex marriage too lightly. That is why homosexuals won the war. Because they won the war the HORROR has begun. That takes me back to my original question:
Do You Have Courage?
