Truth is inspiring, it is guarded by GOD, and will triumph over all opposition!

Outcast

“You should not make friends with an elephant keeper, unless you first have room to entertain an elephant.”

This rings true to our current society considering the ideology of the religion, but what I would really like to point out is that it’s not really ringing the bell if you realize that this only pertains to believers of Jesus Christ and the Most High GOD. You see, there are those who are entertain gods of other religions and this is relished without question but if you verbally speak of Jesus Christ in the world today you are going against the grain of society.
Feeling like an outcast is never easy, and in fact there are many people who have felt this way in many circumstances throughout their lives. But, truly being an outcast due to your religious beliefs has become an accepted taboo. Now, I’m not speaking of churches who cast out other people in their church, I am specifically speaking of the world in general.

The world is a harsh place, no doubt. To see a problem that needs confronting instead of sweeping it under the rug has become the norm. Many crimes happen on a daily basis and people either walk the other way and simply ignore it or they just watch. Peoples hearts have become hardened. Pride has set in, in such a way that selfishness has taken a lead in every action possible.
The government began with rules set in place which gave it dignity and perseverance for the common man and his ideals of a perfect life. It was kept this way for generations and then it began to be changed. It happened on such a wide scale that people almost took no notice until their sovereignty was broached. Now, people are beginning to wake up to the fact that government was for the people, by the people but now it’s for the politics of the governmental bodies and their belief of how we should or should not feel, act and think. This has taken one step further in that we are not allowed to choose our religious beliefs. Oh, the surface looks as though we can…but seriously there is an all-out war against believers of GOD. It’s a socialist mindset which is spreading. Being politically correct makes people do strange things, because politics has become evil.
The Elephant in the Room is GOD.
Many think of religion as a monkey on your back, and this is definitely true. I do not believe in religion, per say. I believe in a personal relationship with GOD. No man, no woman need a building or place to connect with GOD. We are the Temple.
The elephant in the room is the idea that we can go through life on a day to day basis and we’re NOT to speak of GOD. It began with things like taking prayer out of school, not using particular words to say Merry Christmas, instead using Happy Holidays for fear of offending someone. But really its because using the word GOD is becoming a hush-hush taboo. Many families are having issues with this due to the fact the their values have been misplaced, even surrendered for the sake of being politically incorrect.
Programs which spoke of morals which included GOD like The Waltons, Leave it to Beaver, and others are rarely spoken of where thirty years ago, it was popular. Now, we have programming which speak of witchcraft, the occult, and sex in such detail that it’s no wonder our younger generations are rebelling. In fact, the world has become chaotic and hardened.
Do You Feel Like an Outcast?
I tell all my friends on a regular basis that I love being the oddball. I love being different. It’s true! Why? Because I don’t want to think like the average crowd. I want to think like GOD. Do you feel the same? Does this make you feel like an outcast? Don’t let it! We are in the right, and this has become wrong. Jesus told us it would become this way.
Isaiah 66:5 Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at his word: “Your brothers who hate you, and exclude you because of my name, have said, ‘Let the LORD be glorified, that we may see your joy!’ Yet they will be put to shame.
Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Matthew 24:9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
Matthew 24:13 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
Mark 13:13 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
Luke 21:17 All men will hate you because of me.
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.
John 15:19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
John 15:21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me.


STANDFAST

Do you feel like the blacksheep? Well, your not! We are full of GOD’s Light!
I Corinthians 16:13 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
Romans 5:3-6. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Kerrie Roberts-Outcast
Since I can remember, guess I’ve been a problem
Never had a filter, never been the popular one
To sugar coat what I know is undeniable
I just can’t hide it, I wear it like a “letter”

Everywhere I go, everyone is talking
I can feel them staring, they hope I’m just pretending
And giving up my power, caving into pressure
I’m not living for them, I live for something better

I’m not good enough, I’m not what they want
But let me tell you what, I know who I am
So just throw me out for not fitting in
I will stand my ground and be an outcast

So what if I’m an outcast
So what if I’m an outcast

So what if I don’t look the part I’m supposed to play
What if I don’t follow all the rules they make
They think I should be perfect
They love it when I mess up
No grace in case I blow it
“A good girl shouldn’t need it:

I’m not good enough, I’m not what they want
But let me tell you what, I know who I am
So just throw me out for not fitting in
I will stand my ground and be an outcast

So what if I’m an outcast
So what if I’m an outcast
So slow when everybody’s so fast
So what if I’m an outcast

I try to play nice, I don’t want to fight
But I won’t be gray when it’s all black and white
‘Cause what I believe is what makes me strong
If I don’t belong I hold on to love

So what if I’m an outcast
So what if I’m an outcast
So slow when everybody’s so fast
No matter what it costs, I’ll be an outcast

I’m not good enough, I’m not what they want
But let me tell you what, I know who I am
So just throw me out for not fitting in
I will stand my ground and be an outcast

No Matter What

STANDFAST – No Matter What!
