Scripture is a Guiding Light

“Woe! Woe to you, declares the Sovereign Lord. In addition to all your other wickedness, you built a mound for yourself and made a lofty shrine in every public square. At the head of every street you built your lofty shrines and degraded your beauty, offering your body with increasing promiscuity to anyone who passed by. You engaged in prostitution with the Egyptians, your lustful neighbors, and provoked me to anger with your increasing promiscuity. So I stretched out my hands against you and reduced your territory; I gave you over to the greed of your enemies, the daughters of the Philistines, who were shocked by your lewd conduct. You engaged in prostitution with the Assyrians too, because you were insatiable; and even after that, you still were not satisfied. Then you increased your promiscuity to include Babylonia, a land of merchants, but even with this you were not satisfied.” (Ezekiel 16:23-29 Holy Bible NIV) 

“The Angel of the Lord gave this charge to Joshua. This is what the Lord Almighty says: If you will walk in my ways and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here. Listen, O high priest Joshua and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch. See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it, says the Lord Almighty, and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day. In that day each of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his vine and fig tree, declares the Lord Almighty.”  (Zechariah 3:6-10 Holy Bible NIV)


“Not until halfway through the Feast did Jesus go up to the temple courts and begin to teach. The Jews were amazed and asked, ‘How did this man get such learning without having studied?’ Jesus answered, my teaching is not my own. It comes from him who sent me. If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him. Has not Moses given you the law? Yet, not one of you keeps the law. Why are you trying to kill me?” (John 7:14-19 Holy Bible NIV)

Give It Up for Jesus to Take to The Cross

Friday, March 4, 2016 – Good Friday March 25, 2016

Three Weeks to Transformation Thought Provoking and Challenging Monologue
(Writing includes Liberian and West African vernacular)

This is the season of Lent. Most Christian habitually will give up something to commemorate this period. That “giving up something” is an act of repentance. By so doing we give a testament of our love and respect, and gratitude, and worship, and exaltation for Jesus.
Psychology teaches it takes three weeks to form a new habit. Likewise, I want to challenge you to spend three weeks bringing to an end a negative habit. Break a bad habit that has become your character trait.
Begin the three-week quest to erase a bad habit that is holding you hostage. Give up that character flaw. Let Jesus take it to the cross. Give up that flawed trait for Jesus Christ to be able to take it away from you. Surrender the thing that makes you uncontrollably fester in sin.
Figuratively Journey to Good Friday
The Count Down begins Friday March 4, 2016
As long as you hold on tightly to it Jesus cannot remove sin from you. Jesus is peaceful. The Lord does not force one to do anything. Pray that God would make you willing. Willingly give up that moral filth or creeping vice or sinful nuisance. Willingly put up for sale that unwanted sinful asset you have. Jesus will take it from you. Jesus will take it with him to The Cross.
Jesus is on his way to The Cross where he will bury our sins. No more would sin hold you captive. Pack all that stuff up and hand over the luggage. Dispose of the clutter that is squeezing your soul to death. Let it go. It is not worth your eternal life. There is value to your soul. Hell was not made for you. Sin is not sweet. Sinful living should never be a way of life. There is more to you than being a vessel for evil. You are a child of God. You are light. You are the salt of the earth. You have a constant flicker of the light of Christ in you waiting to be turned on, forever.
Surrender that choking sin. Surrender it! Give up anything that stands in the way of you and a relationship with Jesus. Give up everything that stands against your obedience to the Word of God. Confess those uncontrollable vices to Jesus. Add that blemish to the list of things Jesus is taking to The Cross for you. Add your secret sin. Secret sins bring on more despicable behavior. Is secret sin robbing you blind? Do you want to stop but cannot help yourself? You have held the secret for so long you don’t see it as evil anymore. You find that you would need to commit more ugliness just to feel better. And still you would never feel better. It is something you wouldn’t want anyone to know that you do. But that is what you do. That is your “nice little” secret. It has become a habit squeezing you. You end up committing more sin just by trying to fill the void it leaves when you try to stop. Surrender it! Jesus can strip it away from you.
Ask the Lord to help you. Let Jesus break that habit. Let Jesus free you. Jesus will add it to the list of the many stains he is taking to The Cross. Give that up for three weeks. Jesus can pardon, cleanse and forgive you. You will be able, once more, to feel at peace with yourself. Try Jesus. Give up that character trait. Give it up for three weeks. Jesus will break that habit! The Lord will restore you to be clean and fresh.
People, give it up for Jesus. Watch as the Lord turns situations around. Christians give up your secret sins. Allow the Lord to take those to The Cross on Good Friday. Jesus can silence those traits forever. Jesus Christ can remove those sins forever. Christ can wipe the slate clean, forever. Jesus can make certain that those vices never resurface in your life. Give it up for Jesus. In three short weeks you could experience transformation. Begin the journey to transformation, today. Only Christ can help you. If not for Jesus Christ! Good Friday begins the redemption plan of God. On The Cross Christ died to purchase freedom for you. Freedom from sin’s stain and death.
Begin the Journey to Transformation
Friday, March 4, 2016 – Friday March 25, 2016

Pat yourself on the back, oh “pious” sinful you. To the rest of you that are not are not like these sinners! What about those people? Never mind we are all sinfully pious people. Pretenders us!
The habitual liar, gossipmonger, slanderer. Every time you feel like spreading untruths, rumors and discord, repeat a Bible verse. “He who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps himself from calamity” (Probers 21:23). Give that trait up for three weeks. Watch God break that habit.
The woman with multiple lovers. To the women of the night. To the daytime-night-trick providers: Stop the supply. See how quickly the demand dwindles. Regard your body as the Temple of God. The Lord knows your every pressing need. Seek Him. He will provide and take care of you. God can strip you of evil fixations. God can turn you around. The Lord can clean you up. God’s love can make a decent woman out of you. Give up a life of prostitution and street walking. Give up a life of following big men around for small money. If you could see yourself ten years from now! That money is not worth your virtue. Give those ways up for three week. Watch God break that habit.
To those persons who brilliantly purloin; pocketing what is not yours or what you did not work for, is called stealing. The Bible says “thou shall not.” You were not created to be a thief. Cast away greed. Shed selfishness. Give it up for three week. Watch Jesus break that habit.
To the full grown man who likes to follow little girls, and teenagers. And then you boast about it. Shame on you! In the western world, you would be arrested, tried, and convicted for those offenses. You would not dare to commit them when you go to visit abroad. You would be jailed and branded a felon. You would be called a pedophile for life. Your name would be placed on every media alert. Parents would be made aware of you. Children would be warned and they would run away when they spotted you. In the third world you get no reprimand. Not even a slap on your wrist. But I’ve got news for you: The person who oversees the “West” civilized world and the third world, sees you. The Lord sees you! Jesus convicts you. God’s wrath is worse than anything humans could envision. Do not tell me the girls wanted money. God will make sure you pay for that abomination. Stop the demand for their young bodies. The supply will dwindle. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. You know better than that. Leave the little children alone. You are sick. Get help. Ask Jesus. Give up that trait for three weeks. Watch God break that habit.
People, give it up for Jesus. Watch as the Lord turns situations around. Christians give up your secret sins. Allow the Lord to take those to The Cross on Good Friday. Jesus can silence those desires forever. Jesus Christ can remove those sins forever. Christ can wipe the slate clean, forever. Jesus can make certain that those vices never resurface in your life. No stain is too tough for the Lord to erase. Give it up for Jesus. In three short weeks you could experience transformation! Begin the journey to transformation, today.

And You: So you did not see yourself in the group above. Wipe that smirk off your face. You are no better. Let’s face it, my friend. We all are in the same sorry boat! All sin is sin. Here’s how.
One person tells lies. One goes to medicine man for witchcraft. Another steals. One gossips. Another has child out of wedlock. One cheats on exams. One takes somebody’s husband. One person is stingy. One is a hypocrite. One person commits murder. One borrows money and doesn’t pay it back. Another looks down on people. Another is mean to people who need help. One married woman has small-boy boyfriend. Another person slanders others. Child disrespects parent. One person has jealousy buried in their heart. One engages in premarital sex. One kills somebody because you want their job. Another cut your eye at someone. Another gets involved in homosexuality. One misleads others to harm.
One man leaves his wife. Another plans the downfall of somebody. One puts witch in food and invites friend over to eat. One commits adultery. One gives wrong advice to somebody who trusted you. Another is a glutton. One uses curse word in every sentence. One has an abortion. One keeps their speech refusing to say hello to another. One crash someone’s wedding and then condemns the food. Another has multiple lovers. One offer sympathy only to call others and joyfully explain a friend’s problem. Another rubs juju on her skin to attract men.
One spread rumors. One “shagging” (lives) with somebody not married to you. Another has hateful manners. One use office computer to do personal work during office hours. Another is living in fornication. Another beats up his wife. One hit someone’s parked car and drives away quickly. Another sleeps with best friend’s husband or wife. Parent molest child. One uses voodoo to break up someone else’s relationship. Another prepares false income tax returns. One is an alcoholic. Another babbled people’s private business. One resigned his job to keep from paying child support. …
My friend, keep adding to the list. Now do you see why we are all doomed? Only Christ can help us. If not for Jesus Christ! Give up that flawed character trait let Jesus take it to The Cross. Give up that secret sin let Jesus take it to The Cross.
