Keep Out Of People's Kitchen! Keep Out of People's Business!

Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this. (John 12:7  KJV)

If I start cooking some food, I never like anyone coming into the kitchen to interfere. Let me cook my souse and goatwater and bake Dare 2 Be Different PIZZA for the Youth we Impact - ALONE. Since you don't know what I'm cooking and what's going on in my kitchen, I always feel that people should stay out!

Around the world, too many of us like to get into people's kitchen to gather all the information / news that we can get, while our own pots are burning and our food is turning BLACK.

Why am I going around the bush? I have to remember that I am not in my favorite class from high school, English Literature, where many of the writings in the books we used were penned in parable style. To put it plain and simple, we need to MIND  OUR  OWN  BUSINESS  AND  STOP  GETTING  INVOLVED  IN  OTHER  PEOPLE'S  BUSINESS  IF  WE  ARE  NOT  INVITED.

This hasn't just started happening. It has happened ever since the beginning of time.

Don't you remember that Cain was too busy minding Abel's business and offerings that he got jealous and killed him?

Don't you remember that Jacob and his mother were too busy thinking about the blessing that ESAU was about to receive that they devised a cunning plan to steal it?

It has been happening for hundreds of years. What I tend to notice though, with many of the people who like to dwell and lime in other people's kitchens, is this. While they are busy minding the business of others, they are failing to see their pots are burning and TURNING BLACK. They are failing to see their own problems in their lives, their homes, their marriages, their children's lives, their jobs etc.

Cain was too busy watching the honest offering Abel was giving. If he was minding his own business and keeping his eyes on God - not man, he probably would have loved and respected God much more and offered to Him something FAAAAR better than what he was giving.

It was the same thing with Jacob and his mother. If they just stopped minding the business of their brother and son and waited on their blessings to come, all of the anger and the migration could have been avoided.

In the passage of scripture under review today, those around were minding the business of Mary while she did her very best for The Master and anointed him with expensive oil. An inquisitive Judas Iscariot speaks up and questions the move. Jesus quickly shuts him up and says - "Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this." (John 12:7  KJV)

If you read further on, Jesus continues to make some valid statements endorsing the move of Mary with her oil. I believe Jesus' words to Judas back then are the very same words to many of us TODAY.

"Leave people's business alone and focus on our own if you are not invited into their SITUATIONS  AND  LIVES!" I honestly believe friend, when we do that, we would have more time to focus on living right, doing right and bearing good fruit.

Keep Out Of People's Kitchen! Keep Out of People's Business! When you do that, you'll be able to prevent your pot from turning black or your situation from getting worse.

. . . so WHAT if she bought a new car or isn't driving one? So what if the dress they have on today, they wore it last week? So what if he bought some Timberland shoes and only works for minimum wage? So what if someone doesn't smile with you like others? So what if they got a promotion? So what if they went to jail and are doing their best to not let the SCAR keep them down and rise again?

Don't go around taking everything you hear about others and making it fact when you don't know the what's cooking in their KITCHEN. To put it plain, Don't go around taking everything you hear about others and making it fact when you don't know their STORY and SITUATION!

For peace sake - come out of people's KITCHEN and go in YOUR  OWN!

Friend, remember too, isn't every person or so called friend that you let into your KITCHEN, and let look down in your pot, is CONFIDENTIAL, so be very careful who you let into your KITCHEN! Always remember that finding CONFIDENTIAL people now-a-days is like looking for a NEEDLE in a HAYSTACK.

So, if you don't want the dumplings in your POT bouncing up and down the road, know which spoon you let stir your goat water. (Goatwater is a popular St. Kitts-Nevis dish)

Hope is Ahead for you once you focus on YOU and keep your eyes and tongue out of people's kitchen and in YOURS!

I didn't say so - Jesus speaking in his word in John 12:7 reminds us to "LET  HER  ALONE / LET  HIM  ALONE which means. . . ."

It's EASY to Get Depressed, Disheartened and Feel Suicidal (I did feel so just last night)

Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly? (Job 3:11 KJV)

Friend, it's really, really easy for someone to change instantly from a state of JOY and HAPPINESS into a state of DEPRESSION and feel like life is NOT  WORTH  LIVING  ANYMORE. It's VERY  EASY! It's even easier for popular folks of whom MUCH is ALWAYS  EXPECTED.

I really don't know why preachers always tend to paint a bright HOPEFUL picture of their lives from the pulpit all the time and never let their audiences know that they go through trials, storms and difficulities too. I personally believe that their personal stories would do a much better job at encouraging people rather than sharing someone else's story.

If you heard me preach before in person, on radio, youtube or on a CD/DVD that you ordered, you'd know many of my sermons are packed with MY  EXPERIENCES. So here goes.

Last night, having returned from speaking and inspiring the second form / 8th grade students at the Cayon High School in St. Kitts (Caribbean) as to the right career choices for the 21st century under my banner, I returned home, prepared a snack, started watching a movie while I ate, then fell into a deep state of depression and started thinking that all my business and ministry doings were just in vain and didn't make any sense at all. What a way to be thinking a few days before my 26th Birthday on July, 4th?

Yes, positive people, exciting preachers, seemingly successful people are human beings too. We have our troubles and issues to deal with just like you too. We have our dreams and ambitions that don't seem to be coming through, worrying us too. We have our regrets and triumphs also.

Job was recognized highly by God. God actually told the enemy that no one like Job could be found around that time. This same Job, a man after God's own heart, uses Chapter 3 to LET  OUT  and wish he wasn't born. Here's one verse, read the rest for yourself.  "Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly?" (Job 3:11 KJV)

I took a little walk outside and just let the tears flow. I was honestly thinking all sorts of crazy things.

1. Why didn't I just accept a fully paid offer to start medical school when I was 18?
2. Does it make any sense just using my precious time and writing these so called HOPE DEVOTIONALS, when I can be doing something else?
3. Are people really being blessed and encouraged or just reading because they are nice stories or like my writing style?
4. Am I wasting my life away in business and ministry when I can just go after my Medical Dream, then live in a big house up in the mountain or near the beach in a secluded area, away from the stresses of people and make alot of money and not help people as I'm doing now?
5. And of course the devil sent many business mistakes and regrets rushing through my mind and made me feel that I've started out wrong, so might as well I just get out of this world.
6. Does my mission centre dream make any sense at all or would it ever really come to pass? (Read about it HERE)

If you've been to my homebased business, you would probably recognize many, many of the fruit trees that are there are much older than you and I and look strong and well planted. (I'll leave that there)

After my little depressing, suicidal moment, God told me to go to my Ministry Studio Office and take up a particular folder that my mother and others put particular messages from ministry followers who CALL. Not those that email or message me directly on my BlackBerry.

God wanted to show me something. He wanted to show me how many dozens of people around the world I was encouraging by writing and preaching and posting sermons on youtube, facebook, twitter and other social networks or mailing them across the world. First on my mom's list, was the first ever lady to ring our ministry line back in August 2008 during our 1st ever crusade.

I decided to call her to see if the number still works. I didn't get her. I got her voicemail and this is what it said. "When satan knocks at your door, simply say Jesus, will you take that for me?" That was instant encouragement for me. Shortly after, she called back, having remembered my voice and flooded my soul with encouragement. She was still serving God. Actually she was now a lay minister in the Methodist Church and studying to become a chaplain. That was direct encouragement from God.

I saw messages on the papers from people in other states in the USA, then SABA, ANTIGUA and the rest of the Caribbean. What touched my heart was a telephone message my mom wrote from a prisoner in a Caribbean country who called in to get saved after he heard one of my sermons on radio. She was able to lead him to Christ.

I then sat by my computer and saw many emails of encouragement. Quite prominently standing out, were those from Brother Bob Holbert, Christ's Ambassador from North Carolina, USA who led me to Christ at Vacation Bible School some sixteen (16) years ago and who still keeps in contact 16 years after and reads my Hope Devotionals too.

As if to say, keep your fund raising efforts up and NEVER  GIVE  UP because your mission centre dream will come to pass, the FIRST local in 4 years from my home country to ever plant a seed in our Youth Ministry, did so on our website last night while I was penning this devotional. It was a fellow youth from NEVIS who not just verbally commended the work we were doing, but planted a small 2012 Faith seed. May God grant FAVOUR  FULL and RUNNING  OVER on him and every successive generation in his family-line after him. One of the prominent sections of this building would be named after this youth.

God knew that I was going through something, so he just used people on my BlackBerry Network to just start sending me broadcasts and personal messages encouraging me not to give up and fight on. They didn't know how I was feeling. The devil hates people who are serious about doing The Father's work around. Didn't you see he tried to tempt Jesus - The Son too with some bread? Why should I feel that he won't continue to try to discourage and destroy me too using his IMPS and his TACTICS?

One of the thoughts the enemy sent through my mind last night, was just to shut down ALL my websites because they are not making an impact. This was something I could do anywhere in the world in less than TEN seconds with the click of ONE  BUTTON since I build them myself and control every aspect. It was then God told me to check the top ten visitors to our ministry websites for this week so far. When I checked, the top 10 were, in this order from most visitors per capita, USA, RUSSIA, CANADA, ST. KITTS-NEVIS, UNITED KINGDOM, MALAYSIA, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS, COLUMBIA, JAPAN, GERMANY. (This in no means account for the many other countries that visit)

Friend, one day, in God's time, not ours, things will change for both you and I. Let's agree together. If we fall, we'll get back up. If we slip, we'll learn from it and keep on going. We can't afford to give up now! We can't throw in the towel! We can't commit suicide! All we should do is, keep on praying, keep on pushing, keep on running until we reach the prize.

It's sad though, just last week, two clients of mine who spoke to me in confidence made quite similar statements. They said, "Talking to pastors or counsellors now a days when one is feeling down or depressed or suicial or going through something trying, is like going to the front of the CHURCH and saying it on the MICROPHONE because soon as you tell the pastor in confidence, the entire church knows and start looking at you funny." How Sad! Where are the true PASTORS? Are those who are suppose to be helping and listening the hurting, doing more harm than good?

A lady who called into my Saturday Youth Rap Radio program on Dominion Radio 91.5FM in St. Kitts and carried live on my website from 11am EST last Saturday, contacted me crying. "Brother Khrystus, you're doing a great job with the youth. Thank You! Thank You! I wish it had a Khrystus Wallace in the USA too."

Shortly after, I got a Blackberry message from a lady in the United Kingdom who listens too and receives our Hope Messages. She said, "You're doing a great work so you cannot come down. I wish my children can get in contact with you so you can impact them now."

These are the people, along with you readers and radio listeners, and the students that I have to motivate as featured speaker at some graduations this year, that keep me going. I don't know if you understand how much I want to hear YOUR  TESTIMONIES having followed Dare 2 Be Different for years and remained HOPEFUL.

Friend, let's encourage and mobilize each other. We all have issues and challenges to deal with. The fact is, while you may try to talk about my situations, you probably don't know where your husband or wife slept last night. While you bad talk the neighbour, your children are on drugs or doctors can't find what's wrong with you. Let's stop forcing people into a state of depression. Let's work with them. Let's see their needs and where we can help or advise, let's do just that. I am talented in one way to help you and you are blessed in another way to help me. That's really how the world should work, but many of us have grown SELFISH and INHUMANE and NON-CARING. We wait for people to fall before we wish for them to RISE.

I know that I'm not the only youth to have ever felt suicidal. There are many others I deal with weekly. There are many adults who smile on the outside but pain on the inside and think suicide too. Don't Give Up!

Friend, I'm still seeking God as to whether or not I should continue doing what I do locally or advance in ministry or missions, and take our ministry doings around the world, or just STOP now and let the world live off the hundreds of devotionals I penned already.

In all of this though, I'm Not Giving Up - So Don't Give Up Either! A special, special, special thanks to those who are always there for me. Those who hold me up in prayer instead of pulling me down with your tongues. May you receive a DOUBLE  BLESSING from TODAY. Those who read and call or email or Blackberry message me, you are the GASOLINE in my TANK. THANK YOU!

I'm happy that God knows how to intervene to encourage me when I'm low and how he uses people, my ministry impact and stories from the Bible that I've studied for years to motivate me. Job lost EVERYTHING and didn't give up. Why should you or I? God blessed him with far more and far better than he had before AFTER his pain and trials. He will do the same for us too.

I'm happy, that you didn't wake up today to HEADLINES all across the world saying, HOPE MESSENGER  KHRYSTUS  WALLACE  COMMITS. . .  .

Don't Judge me - there are many other potential suicide victims out there. Sadly, they are not as fortunate as me to have ready and instant encouragement because they fear talking to pastors and counselors who many times are not confidentional. If you are one - JUST  HANG  ON  and  TRUST  GOD  NOW! You will make it too! I'll be happy to talk with you anywhere around the world, that's why God is using me to write. Contact me for an appointment.

As the voicemail of the first ever person to ring our Prayer Line (869-465-5914) in 2008 said,  "When satan knocks at your door, simply say Jesus, will you take that for me?" Let's move forward with that attitude, that Jesus will take care of every ISSUE for us.

Hope is Ahead!

What If You Had 1 Hour Left To Live?

Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not. (Luke 12:40  KJV)

Friend, what if you had only one hour left to live on the face of the earth? How would you spend your last sixty minutes?

I have a friend who is quite optimistic about life and never likes me or anyone else to ever talk about anything negative. He only wants to hear of happy experiences and only wants anyone around him to talk of great future plans. I like his spirit. It is quite similar to mine. Quite importantly though, is that we all live and there will come a time, unless God comes back for his world before, THAT  WE  WILL  ALL  DIE! FACT!

Some of us make the best use of our life. We ensure that we get an education or get a skill that will be able to help us earn and live a comfortable or prosperous life, while others waste their precious life away.

Some of us keep trying to accomplish all our dreams while others just sit idly by and don't even dream. Some of us aim to drive the most expensive vehicles and build the biggest homes and save the most money while others just struggle from day to day all their life.

There is a particular thing that I've noticed when someone is coming to the end of their life though. Nothing secular that they've acquired or done in all their life really matters. You never hear someone dying on their bed ask to be driven for a last time in their Hummer or BMW. You never hear someone paralyzed and dying asked to be put in the Master Bedroom in their large house. You never hear the supervisor or CEO ask to be taken back to his office to finish the last uncompleted task before he/she passes on.

Am I wrong?

Those who love and know the Lord as their personal saviour are usually better prepared for the passing. I sometimes hear them singing or smiling or see them lay peacefully. Yes, as a Minister of The Gospel, these are the things we have to sometimes painfully watch, yet be the TOWER  OF  STRENGTH for the family. Others who never accepted Jesus. sometimes humble down and accept Him, while others swear their way away into HELL. I did hear of someone who did that. Have you?

I know that Jesus is gracious and merciful and forgiving, but why give him the dregs of your life on your dying bed when you can give him all the energy that you have now? Why lay dying wishing you had forgiven someone when you can do it now? Why live angry when you can let Jesus give you a new peace TODAY?

If you have one hour left to live, nothing would really matter to you except where you are going after. I am quite certain that while some people are dying, they wish they hand made amends before with a family member or co-worker or church member etc.

Don't be caught in that predicament when you have time now to accept Jesus and live for him. The truth and reality is that we don't know who will die peacefully at home on their bed and who will be murdered or get a HEART  ATTACK. That's the COLD  TRUTH! We don't know who will get a sudden heart attack or who will be mistakedly or willfully poisoned by a close friend or even a SPOUSE just to get your LIFE  INSURANCE in these trying times. We don't know who would succumb to a stroke or who would be diagnosed with cancer and die one or two or three weeks after.

We are ALL called to be READY. Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not. (Luke 12:40  KJV)

There is a GREAT  HOPE in heaven waiting for those of us who repent and decide to follow God's leading. Hope is Ahead for you - will you accept it TODAY?

It Will All Change SUDDENLY

And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed. (Acts16:25-26 KJV)

Friend, I know that you, like me, wish that we could get an IMMEDIATE answer to some of our troubles TODAY. We wish that all the time - Don't we?

Hang On! Hang Tight! Don't Give Up! Stay Trusting! God will come through for you SUDDENLY. SUDDENLY, in his time. I want you to know today that we each have varying problems and God knows ALL about them. He knows about the sicknesses, he knows about the family troubles, he knows that you don't have a job, he knows about your marital issues, he knows about your financial difficulties, YES  HE  KNOWS.

It is my belief that God allows us to go through the pain and suffering but for a moment to test our faithfulness and dependence on him.  Those who depend more on him, get their deliverance FASTER than those who have LITTLE  OR  NO  FAITH.

As much as we think that we are at our lowest, none of us have been ever placed down into a lion's den or locked up in prison, HANDS  AND  FEET bound. If these men who loved the Lord so much had to go through such pain and suffering before being promoted, what do we expect?

I know, I know. You've probably looked up to God just now and said, please don't take me there Lord. I did too. The point I am trying to draw out here is this. All we have to do is to stay trusting and remain faithful to God and he will cause things to CHANGE  SUDDENLY!

Even when a law was setup to get Daniel killed because he was praying to the one true and living God, he didn't get scared and stop praying to HIM. He didn't start crying or try to migrate. Daniel remained faithful and true. He threw back his windows and prayed openly to God still. He knew that his God would deliver. Even when they arrested him and carried out the King's order to throw those who disobeyed into the lion's den, Daniel was at peace.

Note this: In the morning, THINGS  CHANGED  SUDDENLY. Daniel was not only saved, but he was promoted. His enemies who had him setup to be killed, were wiped off of the face of the earth. Them and their families. (Becareful what you do and say about God's People, for you and your generation may probably suffer for it. There is nothing wrong about condemning the wrong that God's people do, but never try to slow them or stop them from doing God's work or from serving him or you might just get a curse on your life)

Let's look at Paul and Silas.

The same thing happened with them. They were locked up for spreading the gospel. Even at their lowest in prison, they were not afraid. They sang praises unto God and prayed. They never lost faith that their God would deliver and would deliver SUDDENLY. Look at what happens.
And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed. (Acts16:26 KJV)

God delivered SUDDENLY!

Friend, your SUDDEN and MIRACULOUS  DELIVERY is coming soon too. God can take care of ANY and EVERY  PROBLEM. Just keep praying and singing and trusting. Hope is Ahead for you!

God did it back then and he is still well able to do it today!

Never Give Up! Keep on Pushing! Hope is Ahead for You!
