Galatians 2:20 – I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

WHAT IS THE BOUNCE MOVEMENT? IT IS IN SIMPLE TERM, THE FAILURE TO PLACE ANYONE OR ANYTHING ABOVE GOD, AND WHENEVER SOMEONE OR SOMETHING FORCES YOU TO PUT IT OR THEM ABOVE GOD, YOU SHOULD POLITELY TURN TO THEM AND SAY ‘BOUNCE’!

THE BOUNCE MOVEMENT CAN AND SHOULD BE APPLIED IN EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES WHETHER RELATIONSHIPS, JOBS, MONEY, BOSS, PARENTS, SOCIAL MEDIA, CHILDREN ;AMONG EVERY AND ANY OTHER THING, THAT WILL CAUSE YOU TO BE FORCED TO PUT GOD SECOND PLACE TO IT OR THEM.

YES, SOME OF THE NAMED ABOVE WILL CALL FOR THE BOUNCE, EVEN THOUGH SOME ARE OF A LESSER CUTTING OFF THAN OTHERS. FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN YOU ARE MARRIED GOD HAS A NO TOLERANCE POLICY WHERE DIVORCE IS CONCERN, HOWEVER, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU LET YOUR HUSBAND/WIFE KNOW THAT THEY DO NOT COME BEFORE GOD, EVERYONE ELSE, BUT NOT GOD. THEREFORE, YOU TELL YOUR SPOUSE TO ‘BOUNCE’ IN THE SENSE THAT YOU ARE LETTING HE OR SHE KNOW THAT THEY WILL NOT COME BEFORE GOD; HOWEVER, DIVORCE IS NOT AN OPTION. YOU SHOULD TELL YOUR SPOUSE THIS IN A LOVING BUT SERIOUS MANNER, BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO WANT THEIR SPOUSE TO PUT THEM FIRST EVEN BEFORE GOD WHEN THEY ARE MARRIED, AND THE THING SHOULD NOT AND CANNOT BE. THIS IS ALSO, APPLICABLE WITH OTHER RELATIONSHIPS SUCH AS PARENTS, CHILDREN AND SIBLINGS.

HOWEVER, IN A FRIENDSHIP THE ‘BOUNCE’ CAN BE PERMANENT. WHILE YOU SHOULD SEEK TO LIVE PEACEABLE WITH ALL PEOPLE, THERE ARE AT TIMES FRIENDSHIPS THAT CAUSES US TO FOCUS MORE ON OUR FRIENDS, AND LESS ON GOD. THIS OUGHT NOT TO BE, AND IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS, YOU CAN EITHER LET THE FRIEND KNOW THAT THEY SHOULD ‘BOUNCE’ (BY LETTING THEM KNOW YOU WILL NOT PUT THEM OVER GOD, FOR EXAMPLE YOU WILL NOT GO CLUBBING WITH THEM, BECAUSE GOD WILL NOT BE PLEASED) OR YOU CAN LET THEM HAVE A PERMANENT ‘BOUNCE’ (WHERE YOU CUT OFF THE RELATIONSHIP PERMANENTLY, PRAYING FOR AND LOVING THEM FROM A DISTANCE; BECAUSE SOME FRIENDSHIPS WILL ONLY LEAD YOU ASTRAY). JUST SO YOU ARE WONDERING THE RANDOM ‘BOYFRIENDS’, ‘GIRLFRIENDS’ AND ‘HE/SHE IS JUST MY FRIEND, WHEN WE ALL CAN SEE WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON’; SHOULD GET THE PERMANENT ‘BOUNCE’, IF IT IS NOT A SERIOUS COURTSHIP WITHOUT PHYSICAL CONTACT WITH THE SOLE INTENTION BEING MARRIAGE. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL LET GOD DRIBBLE ALL OVER THAT RELATIONSHIP, AND LET THEM HAVE THE PERMAMENT ‘BOUNCE’ FOR YOU. FORCE OR WILL? WHICH DO YOU PREFER?

SOCIAL MEDIA, RATCHET SHOWS, OR ANY OTHER WORLDLY OR MATERIAL THING THAT GOD WILL NOT BE PLEASED WITH, LET THEM HAVE THE PERMANENT ‘BOUNCE’.

YES, YOU ARE WONDERING IF THE JOB AND MONEY SHOULD GET THE PERMANENT ‘BOUNCE’? YES, YES, AND YES! NEVER PUT A JOB OR MONEY BEFORE GOD, THIS IS IDOLATRY AND IF YOU DO SO, GOD HIMSELF WILL DESTROY IT. HE ALONE HAS THE POWER TO BLESS AND TO DESTROY. SOME JOBS WILL ASK YOU TO DO THINGS THAT THEY KNOW GOES AGAINST YOUR FAITH IN LORD JESUS; DO NOT DO IT, ONLY GIVE THEM THE ‘BOUNCE’. AND I AM NOT SAYING EVERY LITTLE THING THAT HAPPENS AT WORK YOU SHOULD THROW THE ‘BOUNCE’. AN EXAMPLE, AS TO HOW TO USE THE ‘BOUNCE’ AT WORK OR WITH MAKING MONEY IS, IF THE BOSS AS A BAD ATTITUDE, OR A CO-WORKER PICKS ON YOU OR TREATS YOU BADLY, IF THE JOB IS NOT PAYING YOU WHAT YOU DESERVE OR EXPECTED, DO NOT GIVE THE ‘BOUNCE’, BUT PRAY TO GOD ABOUT IT. GOD EXPECTS US TO BE ON OUR BEST BEHAVIOR AT ALL TIMES. HOWEVER, IF THE JOB IS ASKING YOU TO SUPPORT THINGS LIKE ABORTION, HOMOSEXUALITY, DEGRADING YOUR BODY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY BLASPHEMING GOD AMONG OTHER THINGS THAT GOES AGAINST GOD AND YOUR FAITH IN GOD; YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY LET THEM HAVE THE PERMANENT ‘BOUNCE”.

DO NOT WORRY ABOUT HOW YOU WILL EAT, DRINK OR SURVIVE; AND WHENEVER THE THOUGHTS APPEAR JUST REMEMBER THESE TWO VERSE.

MATTHEW 6: 25-30 KJV

25 THEREFORE, I SAY UNTO YOU, TAKE NO THOUGHT FOR YOUR LIFE, WHAT YE SHALL EAT, OR WHAT YE SHALL DRINK; NOR YET FOR YOUR BODY, WHAT YE SHALL PUT ON. IS NOT THE LIFE MORE THAN MEAT, AND THE BODY THAN RAIMENT?

26 BEHOLD THE FOWLS OF THE AIR: FOR THEY SOW NOT, NEITHER DO THEY REAP, NOR GATHER INTO BARNS; YET YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER FEEDETH THEM. ARE YE NOT MUCH BETTER THAN THEY?

27 WHICH OF YOU BY TAKING THOUGHT CAN ADD ONE CUBIT UNTO HIS STATURE?

28 AND WHY TAKE YE THOUGHT FOR RAIMENT? CONSIDER THE LILLIES OF THE FIELD, HOW THEY GROW; THEY TOIL NOT, NEITHER DO THEY SPIN:

29 AND YET I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT EVEN SOL’-O-MON IN ALL HIS GLORY WAS NOT ARRAYED LIKE ONE OF THESE.

30 WHEREFORE, IF GOD SO CLOTHE THE GRASS OF THE FIELD, WHICH TO DAY IS, AND TO MORROW IS CAST INTO THE OVEN, SHALL HE NOT MUCH MORE CLOTHE YOU, O YE OF LITTLE FAITH?

1 KINGS 19: 5-8 KJV

5 AND AS HE LAY AND SLEPT UNDER A JUNIPER TREE, BEHOLD, THEN AN ANGEL TOUCHED HIM, AND SAID UNTO HIM, ARISE AND EAT.

6 AND HE LOOKED, AND BEHOLD, THERE WAS A CAKE BAKEN ON THE COALS, AND A CRUSE OF WATER AT HIS HEAD. AND HE DID EAT AND DRINK, AND LAID HIM DOWN AGAIN.

7 AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD CAME AGAIN THE SECOND TIME, AND TOUCHED HIM, AND SAID, ARISE AND EAT; BECAUSE THE JOURNEY IS TOO GREAT FOR THEE.

8 AND HE AROSE, AND DID AND DRINK, AND WENT IN THE STRENGTH OF THAT MEAT FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS UNTO HO’-REB THE MOUNT OF GOD.
