This post is written from a first hand experience
Greetings everyone, Blessings unto you from Heaven!
Here at Soulja of Hope (S.o.H) it is about representing Jesus Christ, because without Jesus Christ if we admit it or not as individuals we are nothing from within… I don’t know about you, But! most of my life I have gone out of my way to be someone before others… Heads up Just stop while you ahead!
Making a name for yourself, you, gonna have to sin, and many of you are like gladiators acting and saying stuff like “oh, yeah sin is nothing to me, hades (hell) is just a giant party room anyways…” I actually heard a person say that once… News flash I have been there due to suicide as a teenager there is no party going on but there is grown men sobbing like babies I know so I was one of them and here on earth I don’t cry easy.
Then on the other side of the spectrum you got individuals saying I’m a Christian I’m going make a name for myself… Again stop right there a name for yourself? yep! already too religious it is not about making a name for yourself it is about reppin “The” Name, Jesus Christ,” and yes! you will be hated for it… The cook always says “if you cannot handle the heat get out of the kitchen because you got no business in the kitchen” News flash again living out the Christian lifestyle reppin for Jesus Christ, the kitchen is always hot! Because the main chef YHWH, is always cooking up a prepared feast!
As you can see God has His own version if you cannot handle the heat in the kitchen then you gonna end up leaving
English Standard Version
61 Yet another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” 62 Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
See I told you all God be cooking up a feast… Oh the word of God is so awesome and enriched with Wisdom!
Jeremiah 15:16 English Standard Version
16 Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O Lord, God of hosts.
Another news Flash! It is usually the Christians that are working for God and making headway that becomes talked about and many believe it is the sinners (pagans) doing most of the talking behind your back! Umm, nope, it is those religious Christians that mainly sitting on the sidelines telling other Christians you cannot do that or say that and live for God YHWH, Yep! I went there because you need the heads up! if, you are new to living for God, or haven’t experienced it yet, Your critic’s will not be so much pagans (sinners) it will be those religious individuals claiming they know God’s heart the best and that they are guarding God’s heart by setting you straight…
Here we go again. ☺❤💯 )))News Flash((( God doesn’t need protection God provides protection God has a protection detail He sends to protect His children they are referred to as “Angels” Now to my point If you gonna be serious about living for Jesus and reppin Jesus to others then be prepared the kitchen heat is only going to continue to get hotter and the haters are going to come out of the wood work pagans and the religious folks… I’ll let you know now the hard sting comes from the religious ones because they come across as your brother and sister through Jesus Christ but end up stabbing you in the back when you don’t conform to their religious views…
You, gonna have to seek the Holy Spirit to show you who your real brothers and sisters are until you are use to recognizing the fruits of the spirit… Some individuals can talk the talk and walk the walk well but are very religious… Again seek God He will show you His authentic children… My hopes are this post encourages you to keep pushing forward reppin Jesus Christ, because individuals, are gonna be jealous, haters, nay sayer’s, and religious telling you that you going about it all wrong reppin Jesus Christ. The advice the Holy Spirit gave me was just like a car you need fuel too, to push forward! So, keep your eye’s upon the Lord, and He will provide the fuel for the journey.
Galatians 5:22-23 English Standard Version
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
