TODAY IS UNDERGROUND FRIDAY PART 2
Remember on yesterday I said “I’ll be applying UNDERGROUND to our very hearts, giving emphasis on those that declare “I have a good heart.” “Evil thoughts come out of the heart. So do murder, adultery, and other sexual sins. And so do stealing, false witness, and telling lies about others. (Matthew 15:19). Mmmm, isn’t it interesting how the majority of folk that engross themselves in these evils declare “I have a good heart.” The heart can be a great manipulator, it’ll always make us think that its making progress just as it is. When in fact the only progress it’s making is separation from God. Let’s pause for a moment, and apply some of the evil thoughts into this scripture that we liberally partake of ever day.
The tragedy is many of us know better, we have seen the light of truth, but we refuse to bring our heart from the darkness in which once held it captive. We sing all the beautiful songs “I’m yours Lord take me as I am.” Which he does, however as soon as he goes UNDERGROUND, and start peeling back all those layers of sin, many of us deny even to him that those layers belong to us. For goodness sake the song sounds good while were singing it, especially the part “I’m yours” All in all, everyone wants to have allegiance to God, but at the drop of a dime they’ll give their flesh the very things that they claim belong to God.
It has taken me a very long time to understand “why did I pray and sing all those songs, and in turn fall prey to the very things that I clearly denounced?” The Lord is full Of mercy, and he showed me exactly what was happening with me. During those times he would be peeling those layers of evil away from my heart, I would in turn resist him by maintaining the ones that I enjoyed. I can’t deny my ego (flesh) would be screaming in distress "Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Listen even though I had given my life to Christ, I didn’t want to assist God in the work. I wanted Him to wisp me a new heart, and tell me how I’ll never have to apply anything to keep it safe again, because the blood of Jesus had done it all. All is true about the "blood." However were still here battling this war within us (good and evil) , and around us (good and evil). We are expected by God to be proactive by applying this blood to all evil that tries to come against good. See the problem is that we don’t want to work out our own salvation. Yes the blood has done it all by saving us, protecting us, guiding us, and insuring us into eternity. However that doesn't mean that evil isn't searching for a doorway (heart) to enter in.
Please get this, the blood doesn't protect sin! Lets not forget sin is the flesh/world! This world is govern by evil (Satan). Be reminded the blood isn't protecting Satan. I hope you all get this. Yes the blood protects the sinner that has claimed the blood, for if that wasn't the case sinners wouldn't be saved by the blood. However it doesn't protect sin and this world, because if it did hell wouldn't be enlarging itself, and this world wouldn't be going with it. Allow me to reiterate "We dwell in a fallen world" that requires our assistance. Rather you like or not, we have to apply this regenerated blood by deactivating all evil that comes to attack the very heart that is protected by the blood.
Sadly there were times I “ignorantly” accused God of not protecting my heart. When in fact it wasn’t God at all it was my ego (flesh) resisting unfamiliar protection. It had gotten to a point; I just got tired of my heart being broken by this world, so I just surrendered all of me to God. As soon as I done that I was enlighten about those evils in my heart that had long, medium, and short life lines. The shorter they were the easier they went, and I had no problem making sure (the word of God) they wouldn't be entering again. However those long ones had to be taken out by the severity, because those were the ones I wanted to keep, and they were obstructing access for anything good to flow in and stay in.
In all sincerity I had a life-line of evil in my heart that was so long in it taken about (7) seven years just for it to be severed forever. Would you like to know why it taken so long? Thank you. I would pray, and ask God to give me a new heart, and as soon as he started the process the enemy (Satan) would appear and entice my ego (flesh) with past videos, what it felt like, what it was like, what it be like, and my heart would succumb with like. The last time that happened to me, and it was the last time. One of my best-friends sent me an e-mail that someone sent her and it stated “Our hearts should be so hidden in God, that in order for someone to find it they would have to find God first.” This statement penetrated my very heart. It is one of my spiritual tools in which I apply to disengage “anyone” that is trying to have space in my heart, but refuse to hide their own heart in my God.
Please get this, I beg of you. Our heart is a Godly place; we can no longer afford to give space to ungodly people, places, and things. I mean really, the brokenness that is entailed when ungodliness has entered the heart is unreal. The prolong reminders of pain, sorrow, shame, regret, pity, victim, remorse, the suicide thoughts, distress, and anger is the result of giving away a heart that is only suppose to belong to God. Listen God will not hold anything good from us; he takes enjoyment in blessing us with all good. He admonishes us to guard and protect the life of the heart, because he knows that the results of giving space to evil (sin) will produce suffering and chaos in our lives.
I am a walking living testimony of God giving someone a new heart. Thank you Jesus! I’m so thankful for his grace during these times. I don’t take this lightly, that is why I acknowledge him with my life, by taking a daily inventory of what comes in and what goes out. Because if I don’t every time without fail my ego (flesh) entailed with thoughts from the enemy (Satan) will subtly come in and try to deceive what he has deceived so many times before. Remember the ego (flesh) will never accept God to be Lord over it. Also it’ll never accept that God is better than it, God knows more than it, and God is the only that can conquer it.
