What is my pregnancy story about you ask, Nothing. That’s right nothing. Why nothing, because I'm not pregnant but now that I have your attention listen to how God did in fact teach me about the four kids I need to pay attention to. Last night I really did have a dream I was pregnant. It’s crazy because God always gives me these vivid dreams. In the dream, I was looking in a concordance asking God how he felt about me getting an abortion because I did not want to have the babies. I was still pregnant and I was not getting the abortion but I knew there was one thing I needed to abort; my lazy spirit of this relationship with the Lord.
Today, I was reading a post this guy put up about reading the book of Jude. I've read the book of Jude before but I never studied. After I got my hair washed, I came home and decided to dive in. If you never read the book of Jude, it’s simply telling us about false teachers and the fact that in these days’ people will twist the word to match their mess. It gives Christians instruction to stand firm, stay prayed up, and stay close to God so we can know the truth. It tells us that we need to help sinners and people who are away from the word so they will not perish. We must be loving yet firm with the word. I felt God telling me that’s good and all but how will you know what the truth is if you don’t spend adequate time with me? How can you defend the word if you don’t know what the word says? Well that’s when my kids came into play.
He said Kylie it’s like having three young sons. You come home from work and they are holding their hands behind their back knowing they stole all the cookies out the jar. Son Son number 1 is named Liar. He says whatever gets him out of trouble. He will tell you the opposite of the truth as long as it sounds right. You believed him so much though you’re not sure if he’s holding the cookies or not. Son Son 2 is False Teacher. He twists the Lords word, but you don’t stay in the word long enough to recognize he is doing so. Your last Son is Son Son number 3 or Mr. Confusion. He says things similar to the word so you can’t decide whether he took the cookies or not because his lies “sound right”. God said all your sons have the cookies behind your back but you don’t recognize them by their real name and know me good enough to understand they are deceiving you. Your fourth child is your daughter in the corner being good and he name is Truth. Truth is holding the bible behind her back ready to talk to you about what God revealed to her, but you’re always so focused on the next moves of your sons your too busy take time with her.
Now weather you get it or not, the point remains. We fill ourselves with lies, confusion, and we listen to people who appear to be good and know it all, but are really false teachers. We spend so much time with them; we don’t even see the truth in the word right before our eyes. Sorry to deceive you and lead you to thinking I’m pregnant but thanks for being nosy and getting a little truth on this Wednesday. Take time out for God. Write some prayers. Learn about the armor of God. There’s no way we can be ready to face the world and its opposition if we don’t know his word. Get with it people. God loves us and wants to be our EVERYTHING. Give him that chance.
