This is a message from Poet Jackie Hill from Passion for Christ Movement (P4CM) regarding the drug called Weed – Marijuana, Cannabis.
Drugs is an addiction that plagues our young generation. She dispels the lies of it through her Spoken word. The way I see it, You can’t combine these two trees in your life. You can’t serve two masters….You either serve one or the other. So in this case…what or who are people serving when it comes to addictions?
The tree of life (Jesus Christ and the Gospel) cannot co-habit with this tree of death (Drugs and/or other addictions).
Drugs are a form of idolatry in that the addiction makes it become like a god to people in that they worship it and it always accompanies further sin, such as lust, debauchery, revelry, violence, theft, etc. Trying to legalize death makes no sense to me. Yes, I think drugs equal death or a path that gets you there faster. It’s amazing how people can fight for such a law to be put into place in the first place while knowing the very implications of instituting it into practice further facilitates more sin into the land that will come with dire consequences and opens the door for further sinful laws to be instituted…I am of the opinion that it’s equivalent to legalizing suicide to me. I know what I’m saying seems far out there…but think about it…what is driving people to go crazy enough to even think of instituting such a law such as the legalization of a drug you know very well is assisting suicide in my opinion. It may be a slow process but it is what it is. This isn’t just for drugs in general but it is for every other type of addiction. Addictions lead to death so consider this as you watch the video.
If you are a Christian and you struggle with drug addiction, I’m telling you that you are feeding your spirit with death where God wants you to have abundant life. Some people take drugs for many reasons but the most important thing to know is that drugs of any kind (I’m not talking medical drugs here), will kill you in the long run and your addiction to it will cause you to reach 6 ft under faster. I’m not trying to scare you, but the truth is scary so I hope that this message reaches out to people who are involved with the struggle. Go to a crisis intervention centre and check yourself in if you are battling addiction. Confess that you have a problem and then be really real with yourself about it. The last thing you need to be is in-denial.
Some people might get offended with this message and that’s ok….BE OFFENDED…because if you think what I’m saying is whack… I’m here to tell you that the devil is laughing at you for continuing to enjoy the death amusement ride that you’re traveling on in your in-denial zone way of thinking. This isn’t a debate either… death is excited when you celebrate it in your weed parties (or any drug for that matter, including cigarettes)…you may get a high off of the drug, but that high is at the serious expense of your very own soul. I’m telling you that God is grieved over those traveling this road of self-deception. So please…I implore those going through this struggle, be real and honest with yourself and work your salvation out with fear and trembling. Don’t continue to have an open door for death to keep visiting each time you take a puff or a needle or with whatever addiction you may be struggling with that may not even be drug related. Your body is a temple, If God isn’t co-habitating with you….what and who is?
Seek help, confide in some elders or ministers in the church if your a Christian, and if you are not, seek help anyway and you can start at a crisis centre for drug addiction etc, or tell somebody that you need help and let them guide you to where you need to go. Do what you have to do in order to overcome the addictions you suffer and struggle within your life. You can’t do this by yourself, so don’t isolate yourself and seek help. As the saying goes, “There is strength in numbers” so go and get help from people who can aide you out of the addiction. Call a crisis hotline or something…but you’ve got to do something before the addiction spirals out of control. Your life is hanging in the balance in the grand scheme of things. It’s either you live a life full of purpose or you drain it with activities that lead you down the wrong path towards DEATH. Think about it and act on what you need to do now to overcome your struggles. Fight for your LIFE!
Here is a song from Trip-lee called Robot. He’s a gospel rap artist for those not used this type of music. He’s message is still really rather amazing. Enjoy the video.
I also have one more song that is speaking to me and I hope it blesses you today. It’s from C.H.R.I.S. called Victorious. It is such an awesome song. Trust me it will bless you today!
Scriptures to Meditate
“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands.
1 Corinthians 3:16
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
1 Corinthians 3:17
If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are
1 Corinthians 6:19
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
2 Corinthians 6:16
And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”
[ You Cannot Serve God and Riches ] “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
“No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
[ The Race of Faith ] Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
