WEAK OR STRONG

Societies perception of a weak person is entirely different, from God’s perception of someone weak. There is a difference between a weak unbeliever and a weak Christian, who is walking in righteousness; allow me to break it down. A weak person who does not know God does not have Him to cover their back, no one mighty and powerful to come to their defence; But a weak Christian, who knows God personally, knows that He is their refuge and strength, plus a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1-11). Who are you looking to for help? The government, your friends, family, the job, who all need help and a bailout package. Listen, “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, is my strength, in who I will trust; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower”(Psalm 18:2).

A weak person in the world does not have the God of the universe behind them, because they refuse to accept God’s only begotten son Jesus Christ, they refuse to turn from their evil ways, they refuse to acknowledge that there is a God. However, a weak believer or Christian have the blessed assurance to know that if they wait on the Lord, He will renew their strength, and enable them to mount up with wings like an eagle, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31). As a Christian you better know God’s word for yourself, so you can defeat the enemy; that’s what Jesus use to defeat him (the Word/the Bible). Jesus told him like it is, “It is written.” In Luke 4:1-14, He sent the devil away, by telling him what God’s word says and mean. James 4:7, tells us to draw close to God, resist the devil and he will flee. For him to flee you better exercise the power and authority Jesus gave us, in Luke 10:19, to tread upon serpents, scorpions and all the power of the enemy.

As a weak Christian you better remember that there is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit (Romans 8:1). You better know that weeping only endures for a night but joy comes in the morning, read it for yourself in Psalm 30:5 and Isaiah 65:19. Let the devil know, “Because we through the spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith, for in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availed anything, nor un-circumcission, but faith which worked by love (Galatians 5:5-6). Yes as a child of God, we do get to a point where we might not feel like praying or can’t pray, but remember this, The Holy Spirit which we are sealed with until the day of redemption (2 Corinthians 1:22) helps us in our infirmities; because we don’t know what we should pray for as we ought; But the Spirit Himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered, and He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is in the mind of the Spirit; Because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God (Romans 8:26-27).

However, we must understand as Paul did in 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, where God reminded him that, “His (God’s) grace is sufficient for him, for God’s  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 persecution, in distresses, for Christ’s sake; For when I am weak, then I am strong.” Children of the most High God lets be strong in the Lord, and for those who don’t know the Lord and want to know Him so that you too can be strong, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, so that you will never be weak and defenseless again. To God, my Heavenly Father, be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me as one of His messengers to get this message out to inform, encourage and exhort you, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

CHRIST-I-AM-NOT-SATANS

A Christians motto should be: CHRISTIAm-Not-Satans. Who was it that paid the price for us? Who was it that died for us? So, who do you belong to? If we belong to God, through His son Jesus Christ, then we should follow Jesus’ example and be about Our Father’s business.We should not be conformed to this world, but be transformed, by the renewing of our minds as we see in Romans 12:2 and Ephesians 4:22-23. Jesus was and still is our perfect example of how we should walk, talk, and live for God, in righteousness, Holiness and perfection. It bothers me when people put their pastors, bishops, spouses, and other people above Jesus’ example of Godly living. John 14:6 distinctly tells us that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, and no one goes to God (Our Father) without going through Him(Jesus). And just in case you don’t know or have not heard God only has one begotten son, who He sent to take away the sins of the world and His name is Jesus, it is written in John 3:16.

No, I am not saying it’s easy by any stretch of the imagination. It is so easy to say and write these things but to live it, walk it, and display it is very difficult if we don’t rely on God’s word, and Jesus’ and others in the Bible. Yes, it is do-able, because Jesus showed us how it’s done, and the Holy Spirit that resides in us, and as 2 Corinthians 1:22 tells us, “Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the spirit in our hearts.” The Holy Spirit is Himself the seal, it’s a finished transaction, the devil can’t touch us unless we let him. Ephesians 1:13 says,”In whom ye also trusted, after ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also after ye believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.” WOW ! That’s music to a Christians ears. So we can boldly say with pride that Christ-I-Am-Not -satans. You are a child of God act Christ-like.

If you are not a Christian, who is a child of God through His son Jesus Christ, then here is an opportunity to be one. Go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions. It will be the best decision you ever make. Transfer the ownership of your life to God and not satan, be heaven bound and not hell bound, be heirs of the promise and not heirs of damnation. The choice is yours.

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 only wise God, Our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me His humble servant to relay this message to His children. To Him be dominion and power, both now and forever, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

THE ULTIMATE GIFTS

As the saying goes, “The cow never knows the use of its tail, until he loses it.” Most people fail to realize that God has given us multiple gifts. Every morning He opens our eyes, gives us breath, enables us to walk, talk, hear, feel, and smell. All these things, my friends, are all gifts from God. If you don’t believe that what I am saying is true, then lose one of these gifts after you get used to having them and you will understand. The gift that’s better than all the others was the ultimate gift of His only begotten Son (Jesus Christ) who gave us another ultimate gift, His life on calvaries cross, so that, we might have eternal life. John 3:16 shows as that, Jesus was an ultimate love gift from God to us. Did you accept it? “But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ; Wherefore, He saith, when He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.”  – Ephesians 4:7

Please don’t lose the opportunity of accepting this gift while you have a chance, because it guarantees eternal life. “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”(Romans 6:23). No matter what you think or hear, Jesus Christ is the only way, the truth, and the life, and no one goes to God without going through Him (John 14:6). Don’t allow the little god of this world called satan to deceive and blind your minds, that you will not believe this fact. This is what 2 Corinthians 4:3-4  says, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hidden to them that are lost; in whom the God of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believeth not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE?

How shall anyone escape if they neglect so great salvation? (Hebrews 2:3-4); This is not a game, there is a God, and He is going to destroy the heaven and earth and make a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1). And all those who accept His ultimate gift of His son Jesus Christ will have the experience of a lifetime, because “God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be anymore pain; for the former things are passed away.”(Revelation 21:4). Why anyone would refuse this deal of a lifetime is beyond me, the department stores don’t have a better deal than this, nobody on earth has a better deal than what God has offered us.

But the fearful, and unbeliever, and abominable, and murders, and fornicator, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death( Revelation 21:8). Is this where you want to end up? Well you have a choice accept Jesus Christ, God’s ultimate gift to mankind and you will not burn in hell. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” But Romans 10:9 gives you more details, it says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Why delay any longer? Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions.

Then, as a believer, you receive spiritual gifts, with the opportunity to use them in love. We read this in 1 Corinthians 12:3-11,

“So I want you to know how to discern, what is truly from God: No one speaking by the spirit of God can curse Jesus, and no one is able to say, ‘Jesus is Lord’, except by the Holy Spirit. Now there are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but it is the same Holy Spirit who is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service in church, but it is the same Lord we are serving. There are different ways God works in our lives, but it is the same God who does the work through all of us. A spiritual gift is given to each of us as a means of helping the entire church. To one person the Holy Spirit gives the ability to gives wise advice; to another He gives the gift of special knowledge. The Spirit gives special faith to another, and to someone else He gives the power to heal the sick. He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and to another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to know whether it is the Spirit of God or another spirit that is speaking. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages, and another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. It is the one and only Holy Spirit who distributes these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.”

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 only wise God, our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me His humble servant to relay this message to His children. To Him be dominion and power, both now and forever, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

A CLEAN HEART

God is the only heart specialist that does not need tools. The Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts (1 Chronicles 28:9).  ” I  will give you a new heart and put a new Spirit within you;I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh,and give you a heart of flesh.I will put my spirit  within you  and cause you to walk in my statutes,and you will keep my judgements and do them” (Ezekiel 36:26-27).God promises to give us a new heart and a new spirit which will cause us to walk righteously,and be obedient to His word,that is awesome.

The heart, my friends, is deceitful and desperately wicked above all things (Jeremiah 17:9-10). Jeremiah 17 verse 10 reminds us that God searches the heart. So when we put our trust in man, we are gambling with our life. According to Jeremiah 17:5-7 a person is cursed if they put their trust in man, but if you put all your trust in God then you are blessed.

Our heart is what the Lord requires from us, but it has to be clean and pure. Read Ezekiel 36:26, Ephesians 4:24, and 2 Corinthians 5:17 which means a new heart turns  you into a new person, or a new creature.

Allow God to give you a heart transplant. Jesus Christ is the donor and God is the heart specialist. Read the prayer on the Salvation Page and receive the new heart God has for you by accepting His son Jesus.

 To the Everlasting Father, our great comforter, the Awesome God, who was, and is, and is to come be all glory, praise, honor and thanks.
