We need to please God first

Ezek 13:1  And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2  Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD; 3  Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 4  O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 5  Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. 6  They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. 7  Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken? 8  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD. :9  And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD. 10  Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered mortar: 11  Say unto them which daub it with untempered mortar, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it. 12  Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it? 13  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it. :14  So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 15  Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered mortar, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it; 16  To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD. 17  Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them, 18  And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you? 19  And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? 20  Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly. 21  Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 22  Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life: :23  Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 2 KJV)  Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

One can often now see all types of posts on the Christian nets and also now written for all kinds of reasons, and some are written under the direct leading of the holy spirit, some are written to promote self, some are written out of guilt of not having served God adequately, some are written out a false ambition to promote oneself, etc. Now ambition is a great thing if our ambition is centered to worship, glory God to uplift the name of Jesus Christ,, but Satan, the devil, Lucifer and even the apostle Judas too  got carried away with his ambitions that it was sinful… but  all ambition is not God ordained or God approved just as not all of the pastors, prophets, evangelists, apostles, have been really called by God into the ministry, thus so they are false ones too, imposters, pretenders.

Mat 4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.   (Gen 3:1 KJV) Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? …  1 Tim 1:7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.   Heb 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.   2 Tim 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

Beware, remember that each one of us alone we all are always still personaly respsonsible for each and every one of our own actions, decisions.. Sadly in real life the devil often still comes to us giving us personaly with supposedly helpful advice, or he often sends someone else, to encourage each one of us to listen to bad advice, and to end up doing the wrong thing.. next with severe negative consequences.. the devil really wants to enslave us to sin, to others, to cause us to turn away from God.. if we give up our will and minds to others we will next personally go insane too..

  Mat 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.   John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come. Heb 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

What ever you do do all to the glory of God, and do not do anything by yourself, but always  ask God as to what you needto do first.. otherwise what you do is still sin. True joy is not even found in a having a big house, or in a good job, having plenty of money or in marriage still, but your real joy, life  lies in  how real, effective your ongoing personal relationship is with Jesus Christ. …

God showed and give  us His precious Holy Spirit, He wants us to experience His fullness, He doesn’t want us to be a luke warm Church anymore.

.
  (Eph 5:18 KJV) And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
.
When God talks about spiritual maturity now too he is not talking about any  old age retirement and going to his Church is not merely giving $20 every Sunday morning, and pretending to listen to the sermon, and then living your own life the rest of the week.. still not helping, or caring about the sick, hurting, afflicted persons home even in the local church.. not this is certainly not Christianity but rather this is the real Church is personaly being spirt filled and being a continual real part of Jesus Christ now body, his hands, his feet, his mouth the whole week too.
.
(Psa 46:1 NIV)  God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. (Psa 46:2 NIV) Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, (Psa 46:3 NIV) though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah (Psa 46:4 NIV) There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. (Psa 46:5 NIV) God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.

Rom 15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. 3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me. 4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. 5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:

I too cannot but help but notice some very cold posts , those not written by the Holy Spirit. because they still do have a very cold presentation

 

We all do need to continually, firstly evaluate our own actions, motives.. For example a professing Businessman, self proclaimed evangelist who had just left a Christian Bookstore was hurriedly going down the street forcing Christian tracts upon others, as he approached me, I clearly told him he need to have love first for others.. next I told him he was preaching our of guilt and not compassion.. I asked him if some tragedy had recently occurred now as well in his own life? He replied that he got an unexpected very large request for taxation payment form the government that he was unable to pay. So I told him he falsely was trying to gain now God’s favour by bulling others and was not realy being led by God in his evangelistic tract distribution for if I “have not charity, it profiteth me nothing”

 

1 Cor 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way. 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, :5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. :8 Charity never faileth:
