WHO OR WHAT IS VALUABLE ?

You determine who or what is valuable in your life, not your spouse, your family, nor your friends. I tend to agree with the saying, “seven brothers, seven different minds.” Imagine two men with the same father, with the same privileges, who has access to everything the father owns, same power and authority, and the same choice to obey or disobey their fathers wishes. There are many things you just can’t blame the devil for, you have to blame yourself, and the greedy desires inside of you, that never gets satisfied.

Adam had everything to his hearts desire in the garden of Eden, and he didn’t even have to ask God for anything. God saw his need and supplied it; He realized that Adam was lonely and said it was not good so He made Eve. So the question is if he had everything, why did he desire more? It’s because of greed, and you can’t blame Eve, because he was the man in charge, and you can blame the devil because he must have had some knowledge of the devils downfall,or he should have inquire,because God never withhold information or anything from His children. The choice was his. To obey or disobey. Adam allowed his greed, lust, and thirst for things he did not need to manipulate his decision.

Now years later, Adam’s brother, named Jesus, came to rectify the problem. Jesus too had everything Adam had, the power, authority, and privileges, but when the devil offered him the same things he offered Adam, Jesus refused it, because His relationship with His Father (God) was more important than anything the devil had to offer Him. Jesus also knew that God His father owns everything, so it’s not for the devil to give, unless he stole it from someone (Adam). Jesus shows us that to obey God is better than sacrificing His love, protection, and guidance, more than the stolen goods the devil had to offer. So who or what is more valuable to you? God or the devil, Heaven or Hell, death or eternal life, like Adam and Jesus the choice is yours.

Are you so greedy that you would sacrifice God’s perfect gifts, for the devil’s stolen trinkets or borrowed goods which will not last forever. Matthew 16:26 says it best, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Adam tried it and lost everything, and dragged us into this mess, but Jesus came and made it right,but we have to choose to follow Jesus which is not an easy road because the devil will be fighting to get you back, are you going to let the devil win? After Jesus already secured the victory and gave it to us.

Remember the devil was God’s best angel until he disobeyed and tried to take over. The devil was kicked out without any chance of returning, so he tricked Eve and Adam into thinking that disobeying God is fun, so they both and many others found out the hard way. Don’t let this happen to you follow Jesus’ example, which shows and proves that obeying God is better than sacrificing everything. Jesus is God’s gift to us, He is the only way to God, you will find it in John 14:6 where Jesus tells us that, He is the way, the truth, and the life and no one goes to God without going through Him. What is it why people refuse to accept Jesus? Is it too good to be true? or do you just choose to live for the devil, regardless of the consequences? But it is your life and it is also your choice.

The opportunity is yours to choose and live for God through His only begotten son Jesus Christ. Just go to the top of this blog and click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.

I also recommend for further studies and information on the infallible and unadulterated word ,then you must read the Bible.Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the Immortal, Invisible, the Only Wise God be glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver this message to His children. Let those who have an ear, hear and listen to what the Spirit of the Lord has to say, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

DEFEATING DEPRESSION/OPPRESSION

This is the time of year when a lot of people get depressed for many reasons. It could be the loss of loved ones, remembering how good life used to be for them, not enough money to shop, but whatever the situation maybe, as long as you are alive to see another day don’t let it get you down. Don’t let the devil see you sweat. This is the time of the year where if you are alive you have a million things to thank God for. But to defeat depression and oppression you have to first ask yourself , “Why am I feeling this way? And realize that you can put a stop or end to it, by eliminating it out of your thoughts, and looking for better things to occupy your thoughts. Above all look to God, trust in God, and hope in God. Lets look at how a few experts handled depression/oppression.

David said in Psalms 42:11, Why am I discouraged? Why so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise Him again my Savior and my God.” (New Living Translation)  It was agonizing to David because in the previous verse he said it hurt to the bones, like many of us older folks and young like to say. Even though he felt depressed and oppressed he always snapped out of it, by looking to God. In Psalm 121:1-2, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord who make the heaven and the earth.” Stop looking down at the devil he can’t help you, lift your head up and look to God.Stop seeking mans solutions and seek God’s;As Deuteronomy 4: 29-31 tells us “But from there you will seek the Lord your God,and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul,when you are in distress,and all these things come upon you in the latter days,when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice,for the Lord your God is a merciful God;He will not forsake you or destroy you,nor forget the covenant of your fathers,which He swore to them.‘And remember God don’t lie (Numbers 23:19&Hebrews 6:18).

Jesus our savior went through depression/oppression also, and this is how He handle it in Matthew 26:36-41, “Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith to His disciples, sit here while I go and pray yonder, and He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee and began to be sorrowful and very depressed (heavy), then saith He unto them, My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even unto death, tarry here and watch with Me. And He went a little further and fell on His face and prayed; saying, ‘O my Father if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me; Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt’….watch and pray, that ye enter not in temptation; the Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.”

Then, Paul give us a different look at depression/oppression in 2 Corinthians 12:7 -10 which reads, “And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure, concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me, and He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness,’ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me; Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake; For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

There it is folks, three different people, three different scenarios all handled the same way, and there are many stories all over the Bible that tells you of people who trusted and depended on God. Read Hebrews 11 it gives you a list of some of the people, and I am a living witness. Jesus tells us in Matthew 11:28 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Psalms 55:22 tell us to, “Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.” Are you righteous? If yes, then you are included in this promise.

Then Peter tell us in 1 Peter 5:6-7 to “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon Him; For He careth for you.” These are just a few ways to handle depression/oppression. The Bible is full of examples, try reading it. My favorite is Isaiah 26:3 “He will keep you in perfect peace if you keep your mind on Him, because you trust in Him.” If you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior then you can identify with this. If you didn’t then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Once you do this you will be starting on the right path to heaven and give everything to God so He can run things properly in your life.

I pray that God will give you the spiritual necessities to receive His word, live and abide by them; and will lead you to a place where you can learn and grow into His kingdom. Read the Bible for teachings on the infallible, unadulterated word of God in Jesus name. Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the Immortal, Invisible, the only wise God, Our Savior be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me His faithful servant to articulate this message to His children.

IT’S NOT A SECRET

Do you really think no one knows your dirty little secrets? Well the secret started out with you and the person, then you both told your friends, then they told their friends (that are not your friends), then you tell one or two of your family members, then they tell other family members and their friends (that most likely are not your friends), then before you know it more people are privy to the information than you intended to be kept a secret. My intention is to let you know that it was not a secret from when you first thought about it, because God knows your thoughts and intentions from before you formulate it. Isn’t that amazing. So who is it really a secret from, because once it materializes, it spreads like a wildfire out of control.

But that’s what sin does if you don’t contain it or nip it in the bud from when it starts. Once sin starts it festers into something worse and shameful which will hurt or harm you somewhere in your future. Just ask a politician how their deep little dirty secrets just pop up out of nowhere when they try to get ahead in life. Or ask the thief who wants a job in a bank. There are no secrets in this world because God sees and knows everything; and you can’t run or hide from God, not in the past, now, or anytime. Jonah tried to run from God and end up causing trouble for people who weren’t involved in his mess, plus he ended up in the belly of a fish for three days and nights (Jonah 1:1-17). Running from God is a sin of disobedience. Are you secretly running from God?

Another person who found out in more ways than one that you can’t keep secrets from God or hide from Him was David. David tried to cover up his secret affair with Bath Sheba and have her husband killed to coverup the pregnancy, which would have exposed them. God saw their dark dirty secret and sent the prophet Nathan to tell David that He (God) knew about their “secret” and it will not go unpunished (Read 2 Samuel chapters 12-13). Now do you think you have any secrets? This is not big brother watching (the slogan the police or government use to watch criminals and protect the innocent) it’s the God of the universe who makes all things and everyone who sits high and looks low.

No, you will not get away with the evil that you do that you think is a big secret. So like everyone who wants forgiveness from God, you should start confessing to God and turn from your evil ways, because one way or another you will be punished. The devil was kicked out of heaven for secretly plotting to take over from God, who made him. When God kicked him out it was then the devil realized that God is omnipresent – present everywhere, Omniscient-knows everything; Omnipotent-all powerful. The devil found out the hard way and is now doomed forever, he is heading for the lake of fire and brimstone. Is that what you want? Is the lake of fire and brimstone where you want to go?

In Psalm 139:7-12 David said, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there; If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost part of the sea (like Jonah), even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, ‘surely the darkness shall fall on me’, even the night shall be light about me; indeed the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You.” Folks you can’t hide from God. Your secrets are not a secret, God is watching. Whatever is done in darkness God will always reveal, but there is hope.

In 2 Chronicles 7:14 God says, “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” There is the answer to the world’s problem my friends are you ready and will to do what God says? God knows our secret thoughts and actions. If you are willing to confess and turn from your sins, He is willing to forgive you, and cleanse you from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). If you are willing He is able, so don’t delay just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, follow the instruction and get started.

Then find a Bible believing, God-fearing, Jesus following, and Holy Spirit led church that will develop your faith and trust in God,in order to grow in the knowledge of God. May God give you spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to receive, and accept His message and lead you into all truth. Now unto Him that is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to Our King Eternal, Immortal, and Invisible, the only Wise God, Our Savior be glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me as a messenger to bring His message to His children. May His grace and mercies be yours now and forever in Jesus name. Amen.

HOW COULD YOU?

How can you say that you know and love God but you refuse to live for Him? How can you say you love and know Him yet you do not spend time with Him? Did you read your Bible today? Have you prayed today? Have you told Him thank you for letting you see a brand new day? I ask again, how can you say you love Him but you don’t acknowledge Him, obey His commands, praise Him, or worship Him? What are your plans today? Do your plans include Him? if not how can you say you know Him. If it’s not God you know then it’s the devil you are serving.

There are only two people in the world that demand our time and attention, God and the devil. Now the question is which of the two have your undivided attention? Which of the two do you spend most of your time with? Which of the two do you fear the most? Which of the two are you obedient to? One is evil and one is good. One loves while the other hates. One has a place prepared for you through His Son Jesus Christ in heaven, where there is love, peace, joy, no sickness, and a whole lot more. The other has a place waiting for you in hell, where you are tormented for eternity. Which one are you serving?

How can you say you love and serve Him and still do the things you do with your body like committing adultery, fornication, stealing, lying, and thinking about things that are contrary to His word. How can you say you love and serve Him and don’t present your bodies as living sacrifices to Him. A body that is Holy and acceptable which is your reasonable service (Romans 12:1-2). How can you say you love Him and know Him but not allow Him to direct your path. How can you say you know and love Him and still live how the devil wants you to live?

It’s time to wake up. I am not here to judge you just to inform you that time is running out. Romans 13:11-14 says:

“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; For now our salvation is nearer than when we first believe. The night is far spent, the day is at hand; Therefore let us cast off the work of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light; Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness (sexual immorality) and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus  Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfil its lusts.”

If you love God don’t allow the good inside you to be spoken as evil, which simply means that be willing to walk in righteousness and have peace and joy in the Holy Spirit for whoever serves in Christ, in these things, are acceptable to God and approved by men(Romans 14:16-18). You can’t serve two masters, it is impossible because you will love one more than the other (Matthew 6:24). Can you honestly say you love God and still follow the devil? Time is running out so choose this day to serve. Allow God to lead you out of the devils temptations. Are you ready for this step?

Go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions. Don’t stop there find a God-fearing, Jesus and bible believing, Holy Spirit leading church and attend for spiritual training. Study to show yourself that you are approved unto God a workman that needs not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth and most importantly shuns profane and vain babblings; for they will increase unto more unGodliness (2 Timothy 2:15-16). May God give everyone who reads this the spiritual ingredients necessary to receive this word in Jesus name, Amen.

Now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. To the only wise God, Our Savior, be glory, honor, praise and thanks for using me to write your message to your children. Let all those who have ears to hear, hear what the Lord has to say. To Him be majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever more, Amen.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD

How many people can say they got laid off or fired on Friday and received a new job by Monday? Especially in a time when they say there are no jobs available. All this is not because of how good I am, but how good God is, how faithful He is, and how pleased He is with me, living a life pure and Holy; presenting my body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto Him. No folks this is not bragging, I’m just showing and telling you, that God is still in control of everything, and His word is true. James 5:16(b) says,”The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availed much.” This is modern-day proof that God does supply all your needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:13).

No my friends, when God comes through for you, when God does something miraculous for you, you can’t shut up, you can’t keep it to yourself, you can’t contain it, somebody out there needs to know that God still answers prayers. God still open doors where there is none. God still make a way out of no way. One of the things I dislike the most is to let the world know my business, but there are some things God does for us that we just have to let the world know that He still takes care of His children, who are walking in righteousness, who worship Him, who praise Him, who thank Him, and who remain faithful to Him despite the odds. He proved to me that as long as I remain faithful to Him, I can have everything my heart desires (Psalms 37:4).

This is solid proof that, …”the Lord is not slack concerning His promises…” ( 2 Peter 3:9) about anything. These are the things that happen when you submit to God and resist the devil, and you draw close to God so He can get close to you  (James 4:7). These things happen when you don’t give the devil any room to play in your head and cast doubt and fear in your mind; when you don’t allow anyone to feed you garbage about recession and hard times, because the God I serve owns the world, and every beast of the forest is His, and the cattle upon a thousand hills (Psalm 50:10). If God is not answering your prayers then, you better put on the belt of truth and see what it is that you are doing that’s displeasing to God. You better find out where the devil is hiding in your life that God will not come in and move the mountains and barriers.

I am just encouraging someone who wants to give up, teaching someone how it’s done, and telling someone that there is a God who loves us, and sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to save us, to redeem us, reclaim us, revive us, and above all to renew us. We can’t go to God, be saved, or have eternal life and all the trimmings without going through the proper channels, Jesus is the first channel. John 3:16-17 tells us God sent Him(Jesus), John 14:6 tell us that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Repentance is the next channel, Romans 10:9-13 tells you that you must confess and believe. Numbers 23:19, Hebrew 6:18, and 2 Peter 3:9 tells us that God is not a liar. I am living proof, along with many others. Please don’t think God is going to give you a job that you are not qualified for or have any skills for. Get some education or skills, so He have something to work with. However, I do believe He can give you on the job training, but how are you living for Him?

So, why don’t you try Him for yourself. Allow Him to speak to you directly without going through anyone else but Jesus Christ His Son. Don’t take my word for it, prove Him for yourself. You can start by going to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Make God your priority and He will make you His. Remember the most important thing is to give up your old lifestyle of living for the devil, no drinking, no immoral sexual activities, just obey His commands because it’s better than sacrificing your life, His grace, mercies, goodness, and unlimited favors, it works for me. No, everything is not easy or a bed of roses, but without Him I would have been dead. He promised never to leave or forsake me and He hasn’t yet or ever will, because I will never stop obeying Him.

For growth, strength, and stability you must find a God-fearing, Jesus believing, Holy spirit filled church, that teaches the infallible and unadulterated word of God, with all its quickening power.May God give you the spiritual wisdom, knowledge, understanding, revelation, and discernment to walk in His grace, and the power of His might in Jesus name. Now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of  His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God, our Savior be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to share His message with His children. In Jesus Name, Amen.

WHO DO YOU LOVE ?

The song goes,’ It takes a fool to learn, that love don’t love don’t love nobody’,the truth is, only God our creator and humans can give,and show love,please don’t include animals because if you go into the hungry lions den,he will display his love for you by eating you,without any regrets,so let’s be real,and ask yourself who do you really love ? How do you categorize love ? Is fame and fortune really love ? Is your beauty love ,infatuation or love? Is love and money the same thing? People who claim they love you today and hate you tomorrow,never loved you at all.

And the question again is: Who do you really and truly love ? This is where you know who is of God ,and who is not;This is where you tell the true children of God from the imposters and pretenders,because we love unconditionally like,how God and His son Jesus loves. How I know who truly loves God,from those who don’t; John 14: 15  Jesus us,” If you love me keep my commandments” ,this means as a child of God you obey and follow them till Jesus returns,then in verse twenty-one,He told us,that those who obey His commandments are those who love Him,and because they love Him,God loves them and He (Jesus) loves them.Now tell me who do you love?

Most people just don’t realize that true love begins and ends with God,if He is not ,the head of the triangle,then love will end,because it all begins with Him.The truth is ,my friends when you truly love God,we don’t live by the worlds standards,we live by Gods examples,that was displayed through His son Jesus Christ,we are led into all truths,righteousness and Holiness by the Holy spirit ,the comforter ,that Jesus gave us (John 14 : 17),who resides in us,so if you are a still doing the things that you did  when you belong to the devil,then it simple means you still belong to him,and the love of God is not in you,because there is no change,no transformation,no rebirth, and you prove who you really love.

Gods children obey Him,they love Him,they accept and believe in His son (Jesus),their lives are change,they worship Him,they make sure they are not forsaking the assembling of people who worship him,they never compromise their relationship with God for the things of the world,if you are not sold out for God then you are double-minded,and unstable in all your ways ( James 1:8),which makes you lukewarm,and God has to spew you out,because ,He knows your works that you are neither hot or cold,didn’t you know that,read it for yourself in Revelation 3:15-22.It’s called revelation ,because it reveals the truth through the Holy Spirit,so who do you love ?

God has no stepchildren or grandchildren,so you are either a child of God or an imposter.Stop fooling yourself ,stop allowing the devil to trick you into believing that God knows where your heart is and you are safe with Him,No you are not safe,God is not ok with your sins, nor your lifestyle,by no means is He happy ,thrilled or pleased,and anything or anyone that stop or prevent you from obeying and serving Him,proves to Him that you don’t love Him and His love is not in you,now think about it who do you  really love ?

The main thing about God’s children we love Him,worship Him, thank Him,and praise Him unconditionally,it’s all about Him and because of that,nothing bothers or phase us ,because ,Jesus give us peace of mind,not as the world gives it,and it is the kind of peace that surpasses all understanding (John 14 :27 and Philippians 4 : 7) tells us so.This enable us to be bold and tenacious,unafraid,more than conquerors,because we are Gods child,we have faith,hope,trust and above all love for God.So Gods children have no problem talking about Him worshipping,praising and thanking Him every chance they get.Do you love Him ?

Here is a oppotunity to know, love ,worship,serve, thank and praise Him,go to the top of this blog ,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions.Now to Him who is able to keep you without stumbling, slipping,or falling,and to present you faultless and blameless before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation with unspeakable  , ecstatic delight,to the one and only God ,our savior through Jesus Christ be the glory,honor,praise,and thanks for using me to get His message to His children,and that He will give His children the wisdom,knowledge,and understanding to receive this message and make a change in their lives,to God who splendor, might, dominion   , power and authority belong now and forever,Amen.
