Are You Hungering and Thirsting For The Living God?

What’s It Mean to be Hungry and Thirsty for God?

“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” -John 6:35 (KJV)

We live in a fast pace and now in many places a calamitous world. And we don’t often take time to consider where we are at with the Living God. Even Christians have become callous to the things of God and yes even the churches, many of them, have lost their way in knowing and understanding Him. Many people have become oblivious to who or what God is and even what it means to be saved.

We all get physically hungry daily and if we go without water for 3 days, we could end up in a terrible state. Physical hunger is only half of our makeup. The other half and most important half is spiritual in nature. And this side of us needs to be equally nourished. Some people eat junk food but if they continue in this mode they could end up physically in a bad way – out of shape, fat-prone, heart issues, etc.  Those who feast on the Lord will enjoy a healthy spiritual lifestyle.

There’s a parallel between our physical and spiritual beings. We [should] hunger and thirst in our spiritual lives and the only true and healthy solution is God Almighty. All other solutions are fake, false and evil. So in light of this, do you and I hunger and thirst for God daily? Scripture is loaded with those that did find nourishment in Him and those that did not. 

“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.” -Psa 63:1 (ESV)

The big question is we who call ourselves Christians, do we hunger and thirst for the Lord? Not just on Sunday but every day of the week. Do we search the scriptures to find out all about Him? Do we go to our “prayer closet” and seek Him in our quiet time? Do we spend more time in His word than playing on our smart phones or watching movies and the TV?  How about Facebook; do we waist time on this social media outlet more often that we should be seeking the Lord in His word? 

 “Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk Without money and without cost. 2 “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And delight yourself in abundance.” -Isa 55:1-2 (NASB)

OK, now the look in the mirror introspective question. If we aren’t hungering and thirsting for the Lord then are we really doing His will? I say, no! He wants 100% of us – body, soul and spirit. So if we are not on-board with the Lord 100% of the time, with what are we feeding our souls? Is it Him or the world’s ways, ideals, or [vain] philosophy’s? Or are we spiritually very healthy because we daily feed on His word; we pray, we tell others about the Good News, and we live a holy life unto Him.

Every 0day we hungry and thirst, grab a burger and a drink and go on our way. This happens several times a day. So as believers in God, what are we doing to feed our spiritual soul? Please reflect on these things reverently and take the needed action.  Steer a course to the Lord and never waver.

U.S. Gone Mad: Underwear Locked Up — Criminals Go Free

Editor’s Note: Holy Scripture tells us what the signs will look like in the end days. But … are you watching?

Lawlessness, Ungodliness, Wickedness, Injustice –

“This is Not America Anymore!”

“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, slanderers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of godliness although they have denied its power; avoid such people as these.” -2 Tim 3:1-5 (NASB)

“16- Furthermore, I have seen under the sun that in the place of justice there is wickedness and in the place of righteousness there is wickedness. 17- I said to myself, “God will judge the righteous and the wicked,” for a time for every matter and for every deed is there. 18- I said to myself regarding the sons of mankind, “God is testing them in order for them to see that they are as animals, they to themselves.” ” – Ecc 3:16-18 (NASB)


The U.S. Is A Lawless Society Where The Criminals Get To Go Free But Underwear And Socks Are Locked Up (source)

By Michael Snyder – Jan 2024

We live in an environment of complete and utter lawlessness.  When predators boldly roam the streets without fear but good people are literally afraid to leave their own homes, that is clearly a sign that our societal collapse has reached a very advanced stage.  Even in the rare instances when they are actually caught and convicted, our system will still often allow violent criminals to go free.  For example, a woman in California that was convicted of stabbing her boyfriend more than 100 times was given a sentence that didn’t include even a single day in prison

The family of a man who was murdered by his date after she stabbed him more than 100 times has voiced their outrage after the California woman was sentenced to just 100 hours of community service with no jailtime.

Bryn Spejcher, 33, was given the lenient sentence after psychiatrists said the incident was ‘100 percent’ caused by cannabis-induced psychosis, which she suffered after taking two hits of the victim’s bong.

The judge ruled Ms Spejcher ‘experienced a psychotic break from reality’ and ‘had no control over her actions’ when she killed Chad O’Melia, who was 26 years old at the time of his death, on Memorial Day weekend 2018.

This is America now.

Our major cities have become places where literally anything goes, and that is particularly true for members of Generation Z.

In fact, one recent survey discovered that about one-third of that entire generations openly admits that “they shoplift while cashing out at self-check”

More than half of Gen Z shoppers prefer self-checkout lines — and would even switch their store of choice for the ease of self-serve kiosks, according to new data from Avery Dennison — but it’s not necessarily because they’re independent or introverted.

In fact, one-third of the young shoppers admitted that they shoplift while cashing out at self-check.

According to a recent LendingTree survey of 2,000 Americans, nearly half of Gen Z respondents said they steal the most expensive item from their cart, while only 37% said they would only lift necessities.

This is one of the reasons why self-checkout lanes are now being taken out at stores all over the nation.

I certainly won’t miss self-checkout lanes.

Honestly, I am not fond of them at all.

Of course taking away self-checkout options won’t do much to stop the tsunami of theft that we are witnessing from coast to coast.

In Oakland, the very first In-N-Out Burger location ever established is being closed down because the crime in that particular neighborhood never stops

The In-N-Out slated for closure is in a busy business corridor that attracts travelers headed to the airport and baseball fans who attend A’s games at the Coliseum. Since 2019, police have logged 1,335 incidents in the vicinity of the restaurant on Oakport Street — more than any other location in Oakland, the newspaper reported.

They were far more patient than I would have been.

Needless to say, I wouldn’t have waited for 1,335 crimes to be committed before shutting that restaurant down.

In San Francisco, KPMG is actually moving out of the KPMG building because conditions in the city have deteriorated so dramatically…

Accounting firm KPMG is set to move out of its $400 million namesake building, another high-profile exit from San Francisco’s beleaguered downtown.

The consulting and accounting giant first leased space in the 25-story office tower when the building opened in 2002. Its name hangs above the entry to the skyscraper where the company currently occupies more than 100,000 square feet.

It comes as shoe store Alto prepares to exit San Francisco Centre, the city’s biggest mall, next week.

Businesses and residents have fled downtown San Francisco since the pandemic with groups blaming crime, homelessness and work-from-home keeping people from downtown.

It is easy to point a finger at the west coast, but things have gotten really crazy on the east coast as well.

As I discussed earlier this week, a CVS store in Washington D.C. is being permanently closed because teens would loot it multiple times per day

A Washington D.C. CVS store is shutting its doors after being repeatedly ransacked by thieves, the chain has confirmed.

The pharmacy, located in the Columbia Heights neighborhood, went viral last October when videos emerged of it totally stripped of all its products after being targeted by a teen gang.

Staff claim more than 45 schoolkids would go into the store and steal chips and drinks in the morning, after their classes and late at night. It will close on February 29, according to WTTG-TV.

This is what a lawless society looks like.

At this point, things are so bad that Walmart and Target “have begun locking up underwear and socks”

Walmart and Target have begun locking up underwear and socks – the latest items to be protected against shoplifters.

As thefts have surged over the past year, stores have been increasingly keeping items behind lock and key.

But these have tended to be electronics and toiletries.

As you can see, my headline was not an exaggeration at all.

We really are locking up underwear and socks, and we really are allowing violent criminals to go free.

Western Christianity Has De-fanged Almighty God

“Our God is a Consuming Fire”

“For our God is a consuming fire.” -Heb 12:29 (KJV)

Western Christianity, especially in America, has downplayed the seriousness of Almighty God. This is an overwhelming statement and should be taken in the context of how you view God and His Son Yeshua – Jesus Christ. I think most will agree that we don’t know who God is in reality. I attended church for decades, engaged in [somewhat superficially] reading my Bible although not as regular as I wanted. And by this I missed knowing just exactly who He is. Only since immersing myself deeper in His word and deeper in prayer and deeper in knowing Bible Prophecy do I now get a real glimpse of the magnificence, mightiness, reality and seriousness of God. And yet I am only skimming the surface of who He is.

I think that western Christianity has missed the boat on teaching and realizing who the God of the Bible is. We go to church but really want to be entertained or lulled into Christian complacency more than engage is serious worship – the worship that God wants. We attend church so we feel good about ourselves with the preaching of the sermon; we want not to be offended and return home happy and without worry. Please step back and examine what you hear and learn about the Lord in your service. You see God is serious; He doesn’t joke or kid around about our sin nor is He about the glamour and glitter displayed in many of our houses of worship today. God doesn’t soften His word to make it tolerable. Instead He speaks truth, a truth that so many don’t hear in their church.

We Have Misplaced God

And as a result, I believe that we’ve de-fanged God and forgotten just how mighty and serious He is about His creation. About sin and repentance … well …, we seem to have swept them under the carpet. Look what the Lord did with Noah’s generation and why and also what He did with Sodom and Gomorrah and why. We have tossed many of the truth-solid doctrines of what the Bible says aside because it’s seems negative, alarming and scary. Oh and God forbid if a rock-solid, no compromising, not-afraid-to-offend pastor is (oh my … wait for it …) raises his voice in passionate pleas for his listeners to return to God in acknowledgment and repentance of their sin in his sermon. And the really sad situation is that I know people that have said this and take this view. Sorry to say that today many Christians are sleeping snowflakes and cannot stomach the fact that God will allow people to do as they wish and finally end up in a Godless eternity called HELL! Those type of “Christians” need to come face-to-face with the Bible … all of it, not just the happy and feel-good stuff. Reminds me of this prophetic verse of the last days –

“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,” -2 Tim 4:3 (ESV)

What about Moses who was not allowed to enter the promised land…? Moses – the great man of God that proclaimed  ten horrible plagues that befell the land of Egypt. He was the man picked by God to lead the Hebrews out of Pharaohs’ grip in the land of Egypt. Read about the “why” here – Numbers 8:8-12. God is not about being our homey or someone just like us. He is God and there is no other – Isa 45:5. We need to recognize that He is God and deserves honor, praise, respect and fear with trembling.

God is Serious – He Ain’t Kidding People!!

He is serious about your sin and mine. He is deadly serious about repentance – amending of our ways and returning back to Him – to holy living. Turning away from worldly ways, thoughts, desires and attitudes. He is by all means against idolatry and folks this can be as simple as loving your cell phone or constantly giving more time to Facebook than to God. Yes, this is idolatry and can be described as anything that puts God second or further down your list. He wants to be first, the number one position in your life. He addresses it in the first church reprimand in Rev 2:4. When we lose our love for Him as we had when we first became saved, we are in danger of being entrapped and falling away to worldly ways. And yes we can fall away and lose our salvation. This is stated in many places in the Bible. Do not be deceived by those who claim that you can escape the fires of hell living the way you want without continual repentance of your sins and without living in holiness. 

Yes, there are some big-named Bible teachers that believe and preach that you cannot lose your salvation. They proclaim that if you were to fall away, you were never saved to begin with. Bunk! Their theology on this is in gross error. They must read all the Bible – OT and NT – and find out that God will allow you to fall back into the world if you don’t obey His word. We have free choice to believe and follow Him and turn away again after receiving the knowledge of the truth turning again to unrighteousness. For example, read 2 Th 2:3; there is coming (and I think here now) a great apostasy or falling away. Folks, if you fall away from the faith, you had to have the faith to begin with. The NT is replete with warnings of being careless in our Christian walk and end up forfeiting our eternal soul for that of casual Christianity and convenient carefree OSAS (once saved, always saved) living. You cannot compromise your faith with one foot in the world and the other foot in His word. This is lukewarmness and He will vomit you out of His mouth – Rev 3:16.

But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.” – Rev 2:4 (ESV)

God is Coming Again But This Time…

God is returning to earth again but this time not like as the [subtle] Lamb of God that took upon Him the penalty of our sins and provided a way for our salvation in His sacrifice on the cross and thereby a path to eternal life. This time friends He’s coming in flaming fire to destroy those that do not obey Him or know Him. This is absolutely no joke – this is the word of God – 2 Th 1:8-9. If you are engaged in fornication with other gods (spiritual whoredom) or idolatry (even with an idolatrous heart) or in sexual immorality or a host of other things listed in the NT –1 Cor 6:9-10; Gal 5:19-21; Rev 22:15, you will not make it to heaven. If you did not know these things it’s (1) because you don’t read the Bible, and/or (2) your church fails to teach them. Flee that church and seek God in a no-kidding Bible-preaching church.

This is Serious Stuff

God is serious, hugely serious and yes, He has has teeth! He means what He says, and says what He means and is not kidding around, does not endorse, condone, or approve of any sin. His word is sure and He requires us to read it. He without question, interpretation or negotiation is serious about repentance. Without it in our lives, we will not enter His rest – Luke 13:1-5. In other words, we will not make it into heaven if we do not repent! Friends, this is serious stuff and you will these days only find the real truth of God and what and who He is like in the Bible. For many Christian churches do not teach who God is and just how serious He is about sin.

If you are serious and sincere, you will find Him and He you – Jer 29:13.  Casual or cultural Christianity followers will not find their home in heaven. In fact, this concept and doctrine is absolutely destroying and killing the church. Many people are headed for hell thinking they are secure in their ‘easy-street’ form of worshiping God. Take a look at Matt 7:13-14. Now this is the reality of fake Christianity and what the Lord says about it. Wow, that’s powerful! Yes, but 100% true!


If you feel comfortable in church and at ease with your flavor of Christianity you are in the wrong place. If you go there and almost fall asleep, you’re in the wrong place.

If you go to church and are not impacted with the degree and severity of your sin before a Holy and Righteous God, you’re in the wrong place and your Christianity is fake, feel-good, false or ‘casual’.

GET OUT OF THAT CHURCH!! And find one that preaches the full council of God – Acts 20:27, and not the feel good Christianity that infects so many of our churches today.

Many men of the Bible when approached by God or saw visions of Him became weak – had no strength, fell down as dead men, collapsed, turned pale, etc. Should we be any different? God is God and Almighty is He. He’s not about soft and cushy. His word is not milquetoast or like Koolaide and neither should our church sermons and ministry be softened to be easily swallowed to taste good. He’s mighty, longsuffering and loving, yet just. We need to remember this and come boldly, as needed, before His throne with fear and trembling. We need to engage in daily asking forgiveness for our sins in repentance with sincerity. We need to practice mourning for our sins and the sins of our nation. These things God desires. It’s time to get really right with Almighty God.
