TODAY IS FAKING THE FUNK TUESDAY
Let’s dive right into where we left off from on yesterday. As I briefly discussed how I wasn’t aware that I was FAKING THE FUNK for many years. Undeniably this is one those DEATHTRAPS that the enemy (Satan) takes pleasure in suggesting to the ignorant/foolish minds of many. Nonetheless when I willing accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord, Personal Savior I choose to be conscious of my thought life, and not comply to those feverously cries of FAKING THE FUNK. In a nutshell I just traded in all those FUNK smells for a SWEET smell.
Allow me to reiterate “FAKING THE FUNK can’t be loyal!” For it is of norm for FAKING THE FUNK to place a DEATHTRAP of loyalty all in order to display disloyalty, surely this is one of the characteristics of its stench.
Perhaps this fine example will clarify this DEATHRAP I’m writing on. Someone I’ve been praying for sometime now, said to me in reference to someone we both claim to appreciate. “If such and such had the chance she would do this, that or the other?” I immediately recognized the DEATHTRAP (not shocked at all). Be reminded, I’ve been praying for this person, so nothing can be of surprise when your praying from someone to come from their FUNK by the perfume of Jesus.
My reply “What made you think you could say that to me about that person?” They said “I can tell her kind?” My response “then you can tell my kind.” Their response “No she’s a goer, because if she wasn’t there is no way she wouldn’t have availed herself to me that one particular time.” As soon as they said “particular time” I knew exactly what time they were speaking of, so my response was stern, and direct. “If that is the case then why mention it me, and not to her. It’s not as though I’ve ever said anything negative about her to you, so how dare you!”
Their reply “Hum, just maybe she said some negative things about you.” Even though I saw the DEATHTRAP my former FAKING THE FUNK started to peek an interest, and I could literally feel it wanting to entertain, and enquire what she supposed to have said. I then noticed my heart pondering a little faster, and a sudden evil shift in the atmosphere, and a voice (sounding as if it was my own) expose her, ask, hurry ask, etc. Who do you suppose was now right in the middle of this shifting? Of course the enemy (Satan) cunning propositions (that we sometimes think it’s our own voice in our thoughts) when in fact it’s Satan setting a DEATHTRAP for our own fleshly thoughts to align with his, so he can now try and destroy our witness, prayers, testimonies, etc.
Please understand, the thoughts that your flesh suggests or the enemy suggests are not sinful unless you willing act upon the thoughts. Please get this! FAKING THE FUNK can plead with you all day to set a DEATHTRAP for your enemy, however until you willing act upon the suggestion you have not sinned, and if so happens you do act upon it, your own heart had already by choice willing obliged it to come fourth.
Oddly as this person was speaking (which was a short while) I was expecting to counter-act that FUNK with a scripture. Mysterious as God is he sometimes allows his words to be broken down in the terms in which we can immediately apply it to the FUNK of others as well as ourselves. Funnily (yes funnily) what appeared within my thoughts was this old adage “When a dog bring you a bone to suck on, surely their searching for a new one.” Indeed this person behavior was to be compared to a dog, considering this person had returned to their own FUNK many of times, and in no way was I about to return to my former FUNK. “As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats its folly.” (Proverbs 26:11).
Therefore I poured some perfume words in which they shall forever remember “I can only imagine the things that you will say about me when she grants you access into her FAKING THE FUNK, and remember just as I know who you are, I very much know who is she is, and we shall never again have this conversation.” And guess what we never did, regardless of how she then went on to later manipulate and employ them to speak negative words about me, I never once said anything negative about her to them. “To those who are perishing we are a fearful smell of death and doom. But to those who are being saved we are a life-giving perfume.” (2 Corinthians 2:16-17). To that I say, thank you Jesus that I was free to recognize that entire FUNK, and was able to apply life-giving perfume to that person, and that fearful smell of death and doom to the other person.
My friends, as the evening drifted into the night I kept thinking about what FAKING THE FUNK had I employed to invite such FUNK on my path. I then asked God to show me how in the world did this person get to a point with me that they felt comfortable enough to spread such a stench. As you may know by now, if you ask God something be prepared to get an answer about yourself first. I’ve found out that when God grants me and answer to a question, He always shows me where I missed him, then when I confess and repent He shows me how to get rid of the stench of others. Which most of the time is praying for FAKE THE FUNK afar, unless I become entangled again with bad company. “Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, for bad company corrupts good character. Come to you senses and stop sinning, for to your shame I say that some of you don’t even know God.’ (1 Corinthians 15:33).
We must always be mindful of our position in Christ, we are his followers. He did all the drawing for God’s creation at the cross, as we are only to hold up the light (the truth about Jesus). “And when I am lifted up on the cross. I will draw everyone to myself.” (John 12:32). Be reminded just because were holding up the light doesn’t mean the enemy (Satan) isn’t busy trying to set a DEATHTRAP to lure us into dimming the light.
Hold up wait a minute! For all of you who ignorantly hurl “don’t you think God wants you to in-group with certain people so they can see His light?” Absolutely! If in fact God is the one that’s doing the employing, be reminded God doesn’t employ folk that are in the likewise FUNK to bring others out of the likewise FUNK. From my own reading of the word (bible), own life experiences, and many observation God has been known to employ folk that have been delivered from certain FUNK to assist Him in delivering his creation from that same FUNK. I mean it’s like God asking a liar who hasn’t lied in two days to go and tell a pathological liar to stop lying, this is sheer foolishness. “If you think you are standing strong, be careful for you to may fall into the same sin.” (1 Corinthians 10: 12).
