I AM…Jesus

Title could seem like I am proposing so me sort of hypocrisy. What happened to Gee_ology? Did he finally lose it and think of himself as divine? No, on the contrary, I love presenting people with who Jesus is. 

Now I have touched upon these topics before. My blog doesn’t just consist of stories or articles about my life, but as those of you who have been reading since the beginning know, I’m an apologist. I also am a biblical studies/theology student, a Christian. These topics would arrive and flow from my heart to help understand.

Now, I have had people discuss or preach to me a false Christ. They have learned to pick and choose verses to try to disprove the divinity of Christ, yet let us allow scripture to speak for itself. Let the sword speak and the word manifest.

But about the Son, he says: “God is your throne forever and ever, and the scepter of your Kingdom is the scepter of uprightness. And: “At the beginning, O Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the works of your hands. (Hebrews 1:8-10, ref. Psalm 102:25-27 speaking of Jehovah, Yahweh. Father speaking and declaring the Son as the creator) Now they may say to me, ‘What is His name?’ What shall I say to them?” (Exodus 3:13) “God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM’; and He said, ‘Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, “I AM has sent me to you” (Exodus 3:14) ‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am…’ (John 8:56–59) I AM the Bread of Life (John 6:35, 41, 48, 51); I AM the Light of the World (John 8:12); I AM the Door of the Sheep (John 10:7, 9); I AM the Good Shepherd (John 10:11,14); I AM the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25); I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6); and I AM the True Vine (John 15:1, 5) and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)

Now I could keep going on. I could even associate how the spirit, yet I felt compelled to write this more so to help those in the faith come to clear understanding. I’m Christianity we don’t simply just say Jesus is God, no, we believe and know him to be. Just as scholars can reveal that the early church proclaimed him as Lord and saviour. 

Bring Me Close

Blackest soul, darkest tone. Riding the river styx, paying the token to charon. Broken, unspoken promises soaking in oceans. Moments revealing potent omens. Interwoven frozen heart with focus choking. Hoping to transcend beyond ends. Escaping sentences of prisons. Prisms in metrical means to measure rulers. Ruling to G-O, monopolies in policies. atrocities construed to breed hostilities in futures. Sooner is marked in treason with reason. Apart, not a part of the world, restoring pieces. Speak to me…Jesus. Give me hope amongst such times. Radiance amongst stars, eternal sign. Let the light shine, I’m yours…bring me close…

Followers and Servants of Christ

Christians, In name only?

​I’ve heard and seen it many times before; “Christian” is a title so loosely used. Given to identify many, though few can reveal its meaning. One where hypocrisy follows suit while it is not so and many other Gospels are promoted or taught but is not of God. The reality is the man who claims to be Christian, proud in himself as to forget others, is but a man who professes but is not of Christ. It is more than attending churches or having the title. Sitting in a garage does not make you a car. Biblically speaking, if we were to compare Christianity as it is labeled and seen, many would fall short to its standard. But what can be said of a Christian, is he not one who believes and follows Christ? To solely say one believes in him, God, is not enough. On the contrary, belief in God does not mean one is saved or born again.

Under Laws?

So then many ask what should be done and I shall say as scripture reveals, we ultimately do nothing for in and by Christ we have been saved. Yet, the commandments are seen, to love God and love thy neighbor. In loving God we are known by God, to love God means we obey him. One can try to dissuade and claim we must abide to the requirements of the old law but in Christ the law has passed but it does not mean that it has lost its values. The laws were made to help his people at the time but because of Christ we now abide under him. Just because we are not bond by the laws does not give us excuse to sin. 

Loving Others

In loving our neighbor, it comes with the heart of God bestowed unto us. The true Christian loves without condition or for gain but is willing to sacrifice and give to his brother or sister. We are able to bear one another and rebuke, bringing others back from their sin as members of the body and bride of Christ. Not inflated by our egos because we are his chosen people nor to allow the things of this world to separate us from He who is enough. 

New Creation

The Christian has denied himself and carries his cross. Tossing away his old notions and repenting, he begins to allow the Spirit to work within him and change him to the image of Christ; Being a light bearer and witness to the glory of God. He is able to defend his beliefs with love and humility, though tested. He has become a new creation and given a heart of flesh not of stone. 

Strengthened in Christ

The Christian acts not religious but knows traditions followed to give worship to the Father. He is not weak but is given strength by the Spirit. As he as well knows, he does not require the happiness sought in this world but finds joy in Christ. Though he knows as well that tribulations may arise and his nature may cause moments of brokenness, the Lord calls and restores. He boasts not in himself but in the Lord who he gives all praise. As one who can say or call himself, Christian, I speak as to not have people think I am the standing marker. I am but a man and speak or write with the same words directed and taught in scripture. To live is Christ and die is gain. Thus, we are born again.

Forget Tomorrow, Let Today

You do not know what tomorrow will hold. 
I remember when I was 4, with the whole world before me. People asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I responded, “a pilot”. I remember when I was 17, people asked me what I would study now that I graduated, I responded, “design or animation”. 

I remember all the relationships and people I was involved in. I remember promises spoken but I didn’t know it was going to be empty or temporary. People would eventually give up on me or my pride would have me become the villain. 

I’m writing all of this to help you guys understand. You don’t know what will happen in 1 or 5 years. I thought I met the “one” but just as we are told and led to believe a fantasy, love is more than words or promises that we cannot be certain about. 

Even now, in this moment, all I can be certain of is this moment, the present. So I will love with my all and say I uphold to today. I will not promise the future but I will fight and promise the present. I will fight and continue in this race, knowing God is my focus and everything else is vain but will be a blessing if bestowed and founded in him. I will love who I am now, go on walks, cherish the moments with friends, love again but not “fall” but be risen in love, to grow beside someone. 

I did not know I was going to be as I am today but today I know that the future is its own and I know who I want to be today. A man of God, a friend, a brother, a soldier, a Writer, a son, embedded with honesty, truth, humility, hope, counsel, wisdom, and above all love. 

I will not let words dictate my actions but let my actions be described by words once the story is recou nted by what is seen. You may have known me for who I was but find me in who I am, I am not the same. Let these words create a stirring within yourself to move forward and project your true image and stop living caught in depressio or anxious of what is to come. 

My life is filled and finds joy in God, regardless of the opinions of others. I’ve seen and walked through my own hell. In being broken and restored to bear his image, let me truly be the light which he spoke about, placed on a hill, the salt of the Earth, a prince made king. Let me live and not just exist. I am here now. 

Forgive me and see me shine

26 years….it’s been that long…hasnt it. My life covered in darkness for the most part. I’ve lived in the shadows for far too long. It was my best friend’s and their words that now resonate within me that reveal to me all I’ve faced, again, as a remembrance of what I’ve undergone. 

I can describe the face of darkness in perfect detail. I could recite in ancient tongue, prophecies and tales of the beast and the war that will arise. I have seen power and felt its touch. Yet through all of it the light has always seeped through the cracks. Love binded the fragments of a broken heart. Laid heavy in arms with tears falling caused by the storms of my mind laid to waste by own ego. To be as a god or so was the promise given and to rule man by my will if only I let my soul taste sweet embrace which is death but leaves me a shallow shell. 

Forgive me for my transgressions my love, but know my heart is yours. Marked by such wickedness it is put to death and my convictions stand now at rest to find not peace but make war with my flesh. I wish not for eyes to glimpse what I have seen but in cautious screams I dream of a morrow made anew where joy is sought. 

Please forgive my past and know that I stand to reflect. I am a light in the present and I shall die trying to help others see the way. Let me be an example and my life a testimony, giving witness of love and truth, giving hope to all those who need it. I am Geo, born in the earth, David, a warrior, Lucius, a light. See me not but know I shall leave behind a legacy.

In Christ

I want to live in such a way that it matters not how much I have done, nor my appearance to appear luminous before the numerous accounts that stretch behind me. I care not for fancy titles nor degrees trying to measure my existence by means of losing myself to pipe dreams. Investing my time to a sentence invented and projected so that success is accepted only by the paychecks or investments. Save my number only in death. To date and reveal the steps taken to overcome the challenges I’ve faced. I long not to live day by day but I know I have no control in what tomorrow may hold. The ease and tolerance we have allowed as the world is now degrading from its evolution we have stopped the race. I will overturn and become counter cultural. I follow my king to death’s door because I know he has mastered it. Let me speak in peace only to bring war and forgive me if I do not chase after happiness. My life is not my own. And as I reflect on the choices I’ve made and those I love, I see now that I am truly born again, though I am told that today I am 26. I want to live and in so doing I want the world to know, I am a light. Be blessed and know that I shall walk alongside Christ for in him….is life.

Unfading Love

I hope you make up your mind. 

I’m not like those other guys. 

Eyes set on fire with hearts lustrous as stars. 

I don’t wish for a piece of you, come as you are. 

But I do apologize that beauty seems fleeting. 

World seeming to portray love as mere feelings. 

Choices I’m certain to attain, held with purpose. 

Serving time to know beneath the surface. 

I’m not here for the games. 

Unashamed to reveal I’ll wait til I change your name. 

So if you doubt and say it isn’t right, know I haven’t left. 

Confessing that my love hasn’t died, letting my soul express its essence.
