I KNOW WHAT I KNOW!

“I know what I know!”  The bottom line is I was there, make no mistake about it. Although some of what I know took years to process, I got it now, and I am telling everything.

Sometimes, when others are talking to me,  “I’ve gotten a feeling something isn’t right.”   Maybe peer pressure wanting me to do something I don’t feel good about, or something good, and I still have reserves about making a commitment. Who knows, “it was just a feeling anyway?”  (Take heed, when the Holy Spirit is talking.)

I once heard someone say, “every mother sent their kid to the store to get a beer, who didn’t?  Well, I can say mine didn’t, and I can say that statement she made is not true in all cases. We must keep in mind, in the person’s world that made that comment, with so much conviction; and the ones before her, even the ones listening when she said it again, believed it. The Medea of the family, surely she knows, after all, “every drop of blood in your body was pumped by her heart.” Often causing the statement, “I brought you into this world and I will take you out.”

Those are circumstances that are as normal as taking the next breath in someone’s world, or life. All that turned out bad was not meant to be that way. “It is what it is.”  Some believe they are doing the right thing, but are limited in what they know, and don’t know it. This causes mistakes. We also must take into account, some educators  (Mothers, fathers, school,etc.)  are only as good as their teachers. Keeping in mind, that as far as that teacher is concerned, they are doing the best they can with what they had been given educational wise. Meaning, the educators of the day can only teach as far as their knowledge will allow. Some of the knowledge being taught, even today is coming from “old school.” (Outdated material.)

This is the “Cyber Age,” and the Bible is the only book current, and still the best seller. “How about that?”

Knowledge will forever be upgraded, as we grow. Thank God for our elders and what they do retain, and still willing to share. No one said it was wrong, or easy. Things change in this carnal world, and we “suffer lack.” More importantly, having the lack of knowledge is carried over from generation to generation, packed into tight spaces. (No room to think or expand.) Growth is essential; without it, we are stuck in the “same ole same ole.”

If you dare step out of your comfort zone to seek further advice, or others choose to help you, and you know or have heard of Christ, you may stand a chance. Now I am sure there are other ways, but to “each its own.”  It would be wise for some to reconsider their options. Accepting Jesus Christ into our lives would be one.

I know my words are not for everyone. I know you have to be had been tested, to have a Testimony. I know I am to obey the “Will of God,”  whether I am heard or not. I know every step I have ever taken was to bring me to this point. I know, “one size does not fit all, everything is not easy, and all things call for patience.”

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also; knowing that tribulation work patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope make not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”   Romans 5:3-5

I also know this is not what most talk about or much less want to hear. Groom and Doom are the going topic, and each of us has our own stories to tell. I also know things can change, and because of my own experiences, maybe I can help. I know there is value in trusting God instead of being drawn into; “It’s too good to be true,”  getting spanked, instead of Blessed.

I am not the bearer of “bad news;” most of the time, we bring this upon ourselves. We are the authors of our bad decisions, sometimes with the help of others. Taking on the thought process of others instead of our own. I don’t want my reputation defined by what others do or did. Nevertheless, the bad news was here long before me, and I know I don’t have all the answers. As a matter of fact, I only know what happened to me, and what I am to do about it. I am blessed to be a Living Witness, and my task is to write what is given to me in Spirit, referenced from actual experiences; using the Bible as my guide. News that Jesus is Lord over all things living or dead, even the things to come.

I know we can be taught, renewed and old things will pass away.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”    Revelation 21:4

I know what happened to me, and there are others with similar experiences. We all can benefit, if we tell those without or with limited knowledge, especially those without teachers, what we know, and renew in some that have lost their Spirit, therefore their way. This is where I fit in.

I confessed already that I can’t get you a job, or save you from yourself, sicknesses, etc. What I can do is,  give you information as it is given to me in Spirit, and what I can discern (understand) from the Bible, about a subject I have experienced.

I am keeping it real, doing what I can from my Heart to offer hope, and I can because this is truly available, THRU OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST. Anyone can do it this with Christ, that has declared Him Lord, and have received the blessing of the Holy Spirit. This club is not exclusive, and nor is this a perfect world. I cannot fix your life, but Hope does exist, although we may not all receive the same degree of blessings; With  Christ, there are options for a better life, and by sharing with each other what we know, that’s wholesome.

Only you can make yourself happy or sad, after all, it is your choice, and it’s one of our most prized possessions. ( The Ability to make decisions.) Aren’t we always claiming we are in “control of ourselves?” Everything we do or not add up, and all of it is important as it pertains to ourselves, but most times others.

Let’s take good care of “What we Knowto be fact, and share it thru Faith, Guidance, and a Love of one another, using good Judgment and God given Testimonies to help guide the way.

I Trust the Lord, because of my experiences with Him, and He tested my Faith. I followed blindly. 

When it was all said and done. The experience boiled down to the unlimited possibilities we can experience thru and with Christ; not only with what we know, but what we see, touch, and feel in our hearts. You are aware of that old saying, aren’t you? ” I know what I know, and you can’t take it from me.”

Oh! Taste and see the Lord is good: Blessed is the man who trusts Him.”  Psalms 34:8

RECOGNIZING OUR 7TH SENSE!

Most people know they have Five Senses; smell, taste, touch, hearing, and sight. The fact of the matter is we have Seven and Science will support  Six of them.

I have heard of a select number of people who say they have a Sixth Sense, only to claim they have seen “dead people.” (Demons)  We are not talking about them.

The 6th sense is Orientation, interpreted from a scientific point of view, this means: to know where you are in space, the ability to stand up straight without falling over; to have Balance. Also the ability to touch your nose, with your eyes shut, this is Perception. These bodily functions are controlled by the inner ear. The Scientific name is Proprioception, and it is The unconscious perception of movement, from stimuli within the body itself.  WHEW!  I am glad to know that, it’s much better than seeing “dead people.”

Have you ever gotten a feeling, a sense of something is with you; something that keeps you going? And at the same time in your Heart, there is an underlining feeling that you are going down, no matter what you tell yourself? Straddling the fence, one foot on each side; No sense of direction, riding an emotional roller coaster, going nowhere. Very much aware, that there is something affecting you on the inside. But What?

“I knew it, I could feel it in my bones.”                                                                                                   

The statement, concerning what we knew and felt is past tense. So it wasn’t like we didn’t know, we sensed it; that’s why we could feel it in our bones, (Soul). This is also where we fall off the wagon, and don’t know it. We do not “Recognize Our 7th Sense.”, and “Life goes on,” most often with us out the loop.    

“I knew it, something told me, I should have followed my first mind,”  is what we tell ourselves and others when we are sure of a certain feeling, and did nothing. Because of our limited beliefs we may be in trouble; the trouble that comes from not knowing. Keep in mind that not knowing don’t let you off the hook. You are responsible,it’s your fault; ignorance of the law is no excuse.”

One of the bad things not to know is your, “7th Sense; Your Spirit.”  The Holy Spirit; is the presence of God, on the inside, as a part of a person’s religious experience. The gift of the Holy Spirit is equivalent to eternal life. Jesus Christ describes it as the promise thru Him to live a productive Christian life, and the Spirit to be used to strengthened, fortified, etc. That is my understanding.

Christians are recognized by their Spirit in all things, so this separates us from the rest. If we associate and care for our Spirit in the same dutiful manner as we do our I.D., we will be able to understand how personal, and important that gift from God truly is.

Your 7th sense, the Power of the Holy Spirit is what you can’t put your finger on. This type of strength is overwhelming but still available, and you can gain control and harness the power thru Jesus Christ. This is what we are talking about. So to quell that notion, you are right. Something is there. The Spirit that is alive and living in all of us who will accept it.

Now don’t get it twisted and mistake the Spirit, for demons “sitting on our shoulders whispering in our ears.”

Our Spirit wants to lead us in the right direction, that’s why it’s there; it is also the essence of who we are, the glue that gives us the strength to hold on to Faith, even when God is not a word some are accustomed to using in their everyday lives. It’s a wake-up call to notify us the Devil is near, and a Faithful weapon to fight him with; Jesus Christ.”                                                                                                                                        

“God is still God” a Spirit, know Him or not, He knows you,” and He is the one that gave us all Seven of the Senses. After all,In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.”  Genesis 1:1

“It is through our 7th Sense, that the Spirit causes us to feel the intangible while achieving the impossible.”   Let the believers say Amen.

I KNOW HOW IT FEEL!

Tribulation: suffering with grievous trouble, great misery, and distress.

In life we sometimes ask ourselves, (well I do)  why is this happening, is that really true, wow, did you see that,  do I really know who I am, what I am doing with my life, and how can I do better?

Well, now those are some tough but common questions; and you and God can answer them. As a matter of fact, you’re the only two who know the truth about you. Maybe not you so much, but this still calls for us to have the ability to tell ourselves the Truth.

I am a Living Witness; (Evidence) for not only being a Cancer killer through Faith, but an array of other things, long forgotten.  At some point I felt as if  “no weapons formed against me would prosper.”   When we are young we feel as if we are a force of nature to be dealt with.  But like most, I experienced my share of ups and downs, and thru it all I learned what  “Something’s Feel like.”   ( A Testimony)

I know what it “feel like” to be paralyzed, to lay there and someone is next to me. Trapped in a living nightmare, and my friends cannot pick up on the panic in my eyes; and all the time, I was screaming in my head touch me, touch me.

Stretched out on a metal rocker, on the front porch, looking as if I was only relaxing; enjoying the sun on my face.  As far as I knew before the scare, there was nothing wrong with me; but I still couldn’t move. This happened twice. This is the 1st time I told.  It’s more than 45 years later, and I still know what it  “feel like,”  to be paralyzed and not tell. (Hiding things from ourselves.)

Now, I know how it feel to be a tad stupid. (Making poor decisions)  Although it worked out, I should have spoken up and gotten tested.

I know how it feel to almost have my head smashed under the wheel of a car.  It was close enough to take some hair out. The gear shift was busted, so I had to shift manually from under the right front wheel, one day it rolled back.  “I Know How It Feel”  to almost get killed by my own hand.

“I Know How It Feel”  to have Cancer, receive a Mastectomy, the sting of Chemo; and the courage it take.  All the things in the World which concerned me was moving full steam ahead. The bills still had to be paid, and I had to pay them. “Business is business, and life goes on.”  Tribulations or not,  “I Know How It Feel.”

I have worked in construction a great deal of my life and I know how it feel to fall off a scaffold into the thin air.   I just walked off the end. I know how it feel to have bullets flying pass my head, breaking school records, owning businesses, getting accolades, and some I did not deserve. Things I don’t want to talk about now, or ever.  I know how they feel too.

I know a lot about how things feel. So don’t let the things I write about go in vain.  I had to experience  “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,”  to had these life experiences in order to tell you about them.  I had to Survive.  I pray you “Don’t Go There,”  unless called.

It is my life, so I had to experienced the Cancer and all those terrible and sometimes good things that happened to and for me, to fulfill my life according to God’s Plan.  I was to receive a Testimony, and at some point had to realize that.  I knew God; but I was rebelling, and it ended up being the root cause of my problems.

Cancer was the wake up call; I  blossomed late, but not too late in the Eyes of GodHe still found use for me and my life. I was saved to declare;  “Jesus Is Lord.”

And I am telling you how, “He saved my Life,” so with your permission, He can save yours.  He gave us an informational manual called The Bible;   Pastors, real life Testimonies, and sometimes a good read.  All things pleasing unto God, and written under His authority.  I tell you thru experience, you can achieve all things if you accept Christ into your heart.

All we have to do is submit ourselves unto the Lord, with a clean Heart. God want us to be humble, and give unto Him freely, our Love and Praise.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Psalm 100:4

God doesn’t need money, slaves, somewhere to live. Everything is His, so there is no need for Him to require anything else. The acceptance of Jesus Christ, and living under his authority is all that is required from us.   But it’s not going to be easy.  Things are not always handed to us on a “Silver Platter,”  after all, “Rules are rules.”

I know what the adversary, the Devil, feel like; I got the scars.  I also know how it feels to defeat him thru Jesus Christ.   I got the Salvation.  (Redeemed)

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”    James 4:7

My life was spared because of FAITH, and a God Given Purpose for me.   Jeremiah 1:5 say; “I knew thee before I formed you in the belly.”

I understand clearly, if we are not under the protection of Christ, and do not seek our purpose, or bother to care what that purpose is, it wouldn’t matter what; “We know or not know, or if things just happen?”  Because it is what it is.  “Get right or get left.”

What you need to know is how it feel to be “Covered, by the Blood,” and how it feel to be Saved?

For when we were without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.    Romans 5:6

My Lord armed me with life experiences, and I had to endure the process.  “Failure was not an option.”

To say, I Know How It Felt is past tense.  “I Know How It Feel”  right now!  As if it happened a second ago.  I am loaded with information for all who will listen to help lift the load thru Jesus Christ.  I suggest we let Jesus into our Hearts before it is “too late.”  (Death)

Jesus declared in John 16:33; These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
