08/01/2017: CIRCUMCISE WHAT????


At the ripe young age of 42 (1989) I was kind of a cocky person; thinking back over my past I saw where I had accomplished many “great” feats, so I thought. I had been run through the mill a time or two, and came out smelling like a rose. I was beginning to think I was invincible and that nothing, absolutelynothing could touch me or change me in any way. How wrong I was.

During the year 1989 I was troubled in my mind as I was questioning my right to survive, after I had heard that a Combat Brother of mine had died suddenly shortly after I had helped him move to Florida. I knew that several Combat Vets were dying from suicide, of various kinds, and it troubled me that I was still alive. On top of this I had been going through Court hearings to gain custody of my only Daughter, and things were not looking good for me. I wont bore you with all of that; but suffice it to say I was hurting. So much so that I was looking at possible suicide myself.

I was angry; angry with my ex-wife, in fact I was angry with both of my ex’s. At that time, to tell me to forgive them and love them, I would have spoken a few indecent words at you. I was mad at my Lawyer, at my ex’s Lawyer, at the Judge and everybody else that was bent on keeping me away from my Daughter. But then, BUT THEN! It all began to change, there was an unseen force at work around me. I guess you could say: I had a stone cold, rock hard, unforgiving, get even heart. YES! ME! Can you picture this?

However, towards the end of October as I sat in my living room contemplating taking my life, unseen forces produced a letter on my coffee table that I did not remember getting in the mail. I opened it and read the letter. It was an invitation to visit a Church Family. I went out and bought me a King James Bible and began reading it, at work, at home, at church, just about everywhere I was time permitting I was reading it. It took me one month to read through the entire book, and what’s more I understood the message it gave. I read it through the month of November and then December  3, 1989 I went to an old fashioned Baptist altar and Prayed a Prayer and life changed for me, DRASTICALLY!!!!

ON that day I surrendered my self to Jesus Christ and let Him become my everything. Since then God had taken me through any Bible studies and taught me many things I had never known or heard before. One day God led me to Jeremiah 9:25 “Behold the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “that I will punish ALL WHO ARE CIRCUMCISED AND YET UNCIRCUMCISED.”

If you know me, you  know that I had to learn the meaning of this statement; so I researched it.

Beginning with:

[Genesis 6:5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness Of man was great on the earth, and that Every intent of the thoughts of his heart Was only evil continually.]

Now, the Spirit of the Lord told me that man is able to transplant the heart, but can not transplant the intent of thoughts of the heart. Which means man can not alter the evil that resides within them. The Bible says that it Grieves God’s Heart. Then as God would have it He did not leave me there, He moved me forward into further readings.

In Jeremiah 9:26 God said: “ALL THE NATIONS, ALL THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL” (who by the way are the ones who circumcise their 8 day young sons) “ARE UNCIRCUMCISED IN THE HEART.”

[DEUTERONOMY 30:6 The Lord your God will “CIRCUMCISE” Your hearts and the hearts of your Dependent’s, so that you may Love Him With all your heart and with all your Soul, and live.]

[EZEKIEL 11:19 “And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new Spirit within you; and I will take the stony Heart out of their flesh, and will give them A heart of flesh.]

[COLOSSIANS 2:11 In Him you were also “CIRCUMCISED” in The putting off of the sinful nature, not With a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the “CIRCUMCISION” done by Christ.]

[II CORINTHIANS 2:11 Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a New Creature, old things have passed away; Behold NEW THINGS HAVE COME.]

Pray this Prayer:

Lord Father, I ask You to CIRCUMCISE my heart to take out that stony one and replace it with That New HEART that only You can do. I want to live and Love like Jesus did, so I Surrender myself to Your will. In the Name of Jesus Christ I Pray
