CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW???,…talkin to Jesus from prison,…on the “CELL” phone….

by johnedoe

You know what’s really kinda cool, in my opinion, when you look at it just right?

Jesus said he was our friend and our brother?, he lets us know that through our basic and simple faith, we are his family members. hhmmm?…i’d say that’s what you would call, “coming down” to our level.

he’s the oldest brother, the one whom the younger brother “looks up” to…….

I know that I looked up to my brother when I was a kid,…..(things change lol)…….and HE is also our “friend!”,…and I mean,…a very real and solid and loyal friend!

When we pray, or when we ask his advice, HE is going to tell us the rock solid truth, as HE IS NOT gonna compromise what HE KNOWS is TRUE,…just to keep from hurtin our “feelings.”…

…even when we fail to use his advice…

HE says that our houses, or perhaps, our lives, are then, “built on the sand.”…and then when the storms hit,……he tells us that great is the fall of that house.

AS A BIG BROTHER WATCHES OUT for HIS little brother, or sister, or, as a FRIEND,…better yet! A BEST FRIEND….HE “WILL NOT B.S. US in any way!,…HE IS “HONESTY.” and, i personally…need honesty. i want honesty. for this deisre for such, is what keeps us from living in denial and self deceit…ever heard the old saying about “living a lie?”……not only have i heard it…i’ve also done it, and it sucks…i could go on about that for a long time…trust me on this…

There are a few different definitions for the word pray that are really WORTH our time to LOOK DEEPLY INTO…

(1)… Is when we just “COMMUNE/TALK” to HIM,…simple as that,…about anything,…when we are happy or sad or angry, etc, etc,…and HE hears and LISTENS TO OUR EVERY WORD…we are that important to HIM…and that’s pretty cool!!!

(2)…Then there are the times when we “ASK” HIM for something that we may help “others” with!, and that’s a beautiful thing!!!,……..sometimes we can help others with “things”, and this is good!

(3)…And then there are the times that as we “FOCUS on HIM” and HIS GREATNESS,…then, AS WE, IN THE FAITH, live our lives each and every day,…we can share him with others…because we our living his “honest reality.” when we compromise…we are living a lie,…and therefore, our desire to share gets very quiet. our “confidence” being lost in the compromise…

Peter and John came upon the “beggar” at the gate called “beautiful” which was an entrance to the temple in jerusalem,…..he (the beggar) asked them for “money” (things),..

To which Peter responded, SILVER AND GOLD, HAVE I NONE,…BUT, WHAT I HAVE, I “GIVE TO YOU!”,…I “think” it said, he (Peter) took him by the (Right???) hand???? and said,…”IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST,….RISE UP AND WALK!”

Peter had this “gift” to give because of his “FAITH” in JESUS,…and his closeness with GOD…and because of his many, many, heartfelt and sincere “REQUESTS” to GOD, as well…

(4)…Then there are times when we ask GOD HIMSELF TO HELP OUR ENEMIES!…a simple prayer where we have to do “NOTHING” other than to ask God to help them!

we don’t even have to “get our hands dirty! LOL! this one is E-Z!!!

The unique thing is this,……this is the SUPER POWERFUL type of PRAYER!!! A PRAYER where we actually HAVE TO DO NOTHING other than ASK FOR GOD TO HELP THEM!

We don’t have to “speak” to our enemies,……we don’t have to “give” them any “thing”,…we don’t have to “look” at our enemies!,…we don’t have to “DO” a “THING!”,…you follow me?

Then I ask this question,…”WHY IS THIS ALL TOO OFTEN THE MOST DIFFICULT TYPE OF PRAYER!?!?!?!?!

OOOOooopppppssssss,…I forgot this “TINY” little detail,…we “ALSO MUST”, to make our PRAYER REAL AND HONEST AND,…in turn, AUTOMATICALLY POWERFUL!…We ALSO have to “FORGIVE THEM” TOO!!!!…OUCH!!!, HUH???

BY FORGIVING OUR ENEMIES…WHO JESUS CALLS “THOSE WHO SIN AGAINST US!”…see matthew chap 6 “the lord’s prayer) AND “THEN”, by PRAYING FOR THEM AS WELL,…”we” THEN “BECOME FREE” from whatever pain and or suffering has been brought to us through those we “HAVE TO TRULY forgive and PRAY for!”,……

Because this is “what is GOOD,…and RIGHTeousness for us to do! You see,…WHEN we DON’T,…WE ARE THEN “THE REASON” OUR PRAYERS ARE GOING,…what many of us call…”UNanswered?”

Anyway,…JESUS LOVES EVERY single HUMAN on the face of the earth,…because of this fact,…HE, unlike us,…DOES NOT CHOOSE SIDES…

WE, as humans,…WHO CONTINUE to “harbor UNforgiveness!” are the ones who “choose sides!”,…and that’s not a good thing…

IF we really, honestly, and truly want “TRUE FREEDOM”,…then we must do as our big brother and best friend says,…so, there’s my two cents worth about that…

jus sayin,…love you guys and girls…yall have a good one…or…a bad one. it’s our choice…
