You there, reading this ... you are probably ... and I say probably as in "maybe," you're thinking, didn't I see you Tracy Ann Lisa shaking your ass a.k.a "butt" on some stage? to be telling me/us about the positivity of ChristJesus? The answer is this that I'm about to write, yes ... you most likely did. There is nothing wrong with having fun. Just because I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior doesn't mean I have to change who I am as an artist.
I have enough experience to know that God the Father accepts you just as you are through his son Jesus, and I can tell you with certainty that you do not need to change who you are as an artist, you just need to accept Christ Jesus and God will work through you for you being just as you are.
I can also tell you with certainty, that it is not about what you say in your art, how you choose to relay your heart, but rather the state of mind you are in when you display your art. You do not need to be a gospel artist in order to be saved in the Kingdom of God, God also likes secular music as long as you acknowledge God be it in your music or in your heart, and his son Jesus and let their spirits work in you to produce the best out of you. This in turn lifts others. I will not change who I am as an artist, I don't need to. All my art is what it is and will stand as thus for all time.
Blessed be the commandments of the Lord God of Hosts. The old testament of the Bible is drastically different from the new testament by far. The laws of the old testament are stoic. God is so holy, and we are such sinners that drastic steps needed to be taken by us in order to appease and atone for our sins, and back in the day we sinned every single day.
Specifically why you must accept Jesus Christ, is because you and I would have needed to sacrifice ten lambs, a few goats, ... literally ... at a suitable tabernacle or altar in order to be forgiven for our sins or we would be lost. The old testament folks had their works cut out for them, and they made it work. But since it was so hard, and many fell because they could not keep up with it, a man called Jesus was chosen to be the ultimate sacrifice, and glad we should be.
If not for Jesus, we would all fall, daily, until we are completely lost. What Jesus has done, no other has ever done. He allowed himself to be the ultimate sacrifice at the behest of the Spirit of God, so we can use his Spirit and his Blood, to atone for all the bloodshed we would have had to do to be forgiven for all things. So you see, you cannot do away with Jesus, or you would have to return to the old way of doing things, and God will not accept that, because God gave you a new way and you would be dismissing his son and what he went through for us, which is the same as dismissing God and his command.
Jesus's Blood consecrates the fires and the sacrifices of all the laws of Moses just so in case we cannot keep the laws, it is much easier for us to ask for atonement. If we fall, we fall in the Holy Spirit of Christ. When Jesus spake, he knows exactly what he represented as when I speak, I know what I represent as well which is at the representation of God Almighty. It cannot be explained to you no other way, so read my works as they become available to you, the works of Jesus Christ and all those in your Bible. By default, Jesus could not lie about his mission, for once you trust in faith, it will all click for you. Jesus let us sacrifice him for a reason and it was no walk in the park to be a sacrifice.
Jesus's mission is God's mission through his Body and Blood. The Spirit of God needed an easier way to allow us to be saved just in case you can't get to ten goats and blemish free lambs, Jesus has been my answer and he is yours if you choose. The old testament must be acknowledged however, so you know what God requires. The spirit of God requires your allegiance, but you have to choose it, that's how fair and just God is.
The old testament is where God shows us how the Spirit of God deals with humanity. You think that is harsh, but what of our sins? and we sin, badly. I'm sure you saw me say and do a lot of things, as they saw Jesus do a lot as well, I'm sure it is easy for you to point fingers and say why Jesus or why me Tracy? But I don't know, it is automatic for me to do the things I do the way I do it as it was for the Son of Man.
God is all consuming and is to be feared, I'll tell you that ... which you already know. I don't even have to remind you how temporary this life is, we all must face him one day, our Creator who created all. God can destroy us and have done so once before. But because God loves us, he sent us Jesus if we are desiring to choose God. We have a choice in this dual life. God will not force you to serve him. God doesn't need to as God already knows what the Spirit can do for you when it is time. It is a pact and a decision God made long ago to let us humans have our choice in the matter of who we will serve.
God would not be a loving God if God were to force you to serve the Spirit of God. However, the consequences of not acknowledging our Creator, I can't say it is good. I must say serving God is like a hidden treasure, and once you find it you dare not let it go.
Now, about conservatism for me. Conserving is important. For myself, I will try to explain what my version of conservatism is as the future comes upon us day by day. We must strive to conserve this planet here the Goddess Earth. Conservatism is also spiritual, and not just physical to me. If you are privy to the precious resources of our home, then you know you must return her graciousness for a reason.
We should keep our Oceans less polluted, I mean this, and conserve our valuables just in case. Are you saving? Can you save money? Then save some, just in case ... That is not to say you shouldn't spend, that is not what I am talking about as money is for spending. You figure that one out and let the Spirit of God guide you. Do not mistake buying and spending with the idea of conservatism as there is a slight difference. Goods and services are the heartbeat of all economies so we must support the one we live in while conserving.
If you see new gears you want to buy for yourself do not hold out and then say I told you to conserve, you need to be in the continual flow of giving and letting go. That is not the idea of conservatism I am talking about. Money is made to be spent, given away, donated and yet ... preserving of the naturalness of your state if you will. However it makes you happy, then you are conserving something even if it is the right to feel and be happy.
Do you have Gold, expensive woodwork, artwork ... conserve that. Conserve our Icebergs, reduce our air pollution so that our breathing quality increases in purity. Conserve currency, conserve language, conserve your space/home, conserve what you enjoy be it sports, your favorite channel and entertainment, conserve calculations, production, conserve energy, conserve your social monolithic, federalism, democracy.
Are you a dictatorship or autocrat? am I cruel if I tell you to conserve that, because you must ... Conserve your state in anyway you can because in the future you just never know what God has in store for you. You can find yourself loosening up and working with your people to become more democratic. If you rely on God, God will show you how to do this one state at a time, so you needn't worry and let anger or the sense of being "stuck" get you.
You see, we are all apart of the genetic make-up in one universal codec, all our differences count. Our differences allows God to accommodate many variations. Oh ... you thought God only accepts one type of anything you are wrong. God didn't make us and put us here to condemn us and say ... "Well, I guess you are born how you are so hell for you" That is ridiculous, and you misinterpret who and what God is and why God sent Christ Jesus.
If you find yourself moving from dictatorship to democracy, there is a reason for that. One day at a time, make room for bigger and better things, and better ways of life to make this life easier to bear. Do not mind if you are a leader and you get criticized for all you do or the lot you have been given, you would not be a good leader if you don't know that it is fair for you to be questioned by all your people. It in fact, makes you greater. You engage sentiments be it good or unpleasant this is good for you. In fact, you should be exactly how you are if it works for you and yours at this point in time.
None of us can tell the future, we are only purpose in this minute to the next, but we can plan for it. Our differences allows us to thrive in the cycle called life which can be beautifully harsh and bittersweet.
Be blessed in the name of 1Ne3Rinity and may the Peace of God be with you all ways.
My name is Tracy and welcome to my site and blog page. Thanks for stopping by. On this page I will try to catalogue some things or pivotal moments I feel have made me who I am. There may even be moments that are not so pivotal but more like a muse, a funny memory or otherwise. Be warned though, I may take things off, I may re-edit or remove things. If you happen to read something and it isn't here anymore, its because I am either re-editing, or getting ready to add something else. Also, some of the things I say on here may be understandable and some may not, and sometimes I may not blog or add anything for a while.
