the poem, speaks for itself. Rock

Duality, and doublemindedness, are one in the same,

and both keep you from, truthfully, putting Christian,

next to your name.


It's a matter of good business, and to world I will go,
as my personal, and business life are way different,


Well, the only business you, really, get to claim,
is the business of your Father, doing all in His will, 

is, not an option, you can, on, and off, again, proclaim.

You might think, that excuse, is novel, or new

as you use, it, to do, what you want to, do 

but the truth is it's been worn out, for a long, long, time,

and used by many, not just,
a few

All thoughts we have, all we contemplate to do,

should be brought into captivity, to: guess who?

To Christ, and the Word, is what He commands,

of, His own, does that include,



If you're running to the world, or the wisdom of man,

to justify doin what HE says you can't

Well, contrition, is missing, and without that,
your sins can't be forgiven, and with the father of all lies,
you've made a pact.


He loves you, none the less, and will never stop, bringing you back
to the place of decision, as to who, is really in charge of what you,

think, and, do.

As He brings the truth to the forefront, and, beckons you to see,

Your, allegence is, still, to to self, and in His Grace, you

cannot be.


To love Him, with ALL of your mind, heart, and soul,

is what HE, says He needs from you, and that includes your

personal life, and any business too.

All, means all, and everything, includes all, as well

So give Him your all, or face, what lying to Him, may bring;
forever, to reside, with the devil, in a place,

called: Sheol.


ROCK-Salt!  02 07


When a cloud vanishes, it is gone,

So, he who goes down to Sheol,

does not come up.
Job 7:9

Powerful instruction and rebuke here with the truh to back it as God always does when he sends his servants with a message.

Doublemindness (James 1:8, 4:8)- One cannot live one way and act another it is an insult to the Holy Spirit. I would say in all their affairs one has to be on target with God's Word and communion with the Lord.

"Yep Doublemindness. Our Fruits will prove against us also if we are not aligned in the word and our walk obeying God.

He is the Voice we hear behind us directing us in the way to go.

He is at the beginning where his word he seen long before spoken the end of our individual journeys. If we walk and take heed to his voice and his spirit all is well in the kingdom of God. We cannot veer left nor right for the highway is narrow and few finish the mark of the journey." Joselyn

wavering or undecided in mind.{Doublemindness}

The apostle James warns against being double-minded. What is double-mindedness and what are its consequences?

by Kevin Epps


n his New Testament letter, the apostle James twice uses the term double-minded (James 1:8; 4:8). Being double-minded is a problem that can damage Christians and can manifest itself in several areas of their lives.

The Greek word translated "double-minded" is dipsuchos, from dis, meaning "twice," and psuche, meaning "mind." James uses it to describe someone who is divided in his interests or loyalties, wavering, uncertain, two-faced, half-hearted. We will see double-mindedness as a theme throughout his letter.

Even godly men in the Bible sometimes lapsed into double-mindedness. John, who baptized Jesus Christ, saw the Holy Spirit descend upon the Savior "in bodily form like a dove" and heard a voice from heaven declare, "You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased" (Luke 3:21-22). Yet, after landing in prison, where he would ultimately be beheaded, John sent men to Christ asking, "Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?" (Luke 7:19-20).

Powerful Instruction ROCK!

Peace & Blessings,
