What does being a “Christian” mean to you?
Does it mean that you are ‘saved’?
Does it mean that you have become part of a certain culture and a kind of lifestyle?
Does it mean that you are part of a ritual and routine of living your everyday life as a “Christian”?
Or does it mean that the there is a Fire raging in your heart?
Does it mean that you are happily waking up with the LORD each morning having a song, a Word or a Inspiration in your heart?
Does it mean that you experience His Presence being Alive in you throughout the day?
That you have conversations with Jesus all throughout your days and even in your dreams at night?
There is a big difference between ‘being saved’ and Living within the realm of sharing the Wonder of walking with God as a result of your salvation.
One is dead and leads to death. While the other is Alive and leads to Abundant Living!
Time to take stock and to examine if we are still in the faith!
Whether we are still “in it” or whether we simply proclaim for it to be in us!
“Not everyone who calls Me Lord, Lord will enter in….”

To walk alone is one of biggest “taboo’s” in today’s religious circles, but is it a taboo with God … and why is religion so anxious to oppose it?
New and in writing :- “Called to Walk Alone” with God.
The essential key to the true believer’s survival in the coming years will be to have a strong personal foundation in their walk with God.
Intimacy and a personal Intimate knowledge of God will be the only keys that will see them through as deception, fake prophets and imposing apostles, cold religion and “church without God”, will grow to become the accepted norms of the day.
They will have only God as true Friend to teach, lead and comfort them, and their survival in walking with Him with integrity will depend solely upon their personal knowledge of Him and their ability to yield and to follow when they are “Called to Walk Alone” with God!
