WHO IS THE WORD FROM?

When people preach you can tell if the message is from God or men because the Holy Spirit that’s inside of you will apply the belt of truth and have you leaping, praising and thanking God. When someone begs for an ‘Amen’ it means that even though the message is biblically orchestrated it lacks the guidance and prompting of the Holy Spirit.

In Galatians 1:11 and 12, Paul made it known that the gospel which is preached should not be from man, and you can’t receive it from man even though God uses man to teach it; the revelation is through Jesus Christ. Therefore, no man on earth should take the glory or praise for what God has done through His Son, Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit.

Truly anointed preachers don’t confer with flesh and blood; they talk to God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit uses them and gives them utterance according to God’s will. No earthly teacher or preacher can reveal things to you unless they are led by the Holy Spirit. As Paul says in Galatians 1:15-16, anointed preachers are called when it pleases God. through His grace to reveal His Son – Jesus Christ to them; the same Jesus who is the way, the truth and the giver of eternal life, He is the only one who guarantees access to God. Don’t celebrate with people who try to take the glory and praise from God. Paul says in Galatians 1 verse 24, they glorified God in him. Why? Because he preached the same faith he once tried to destroy.

When you are the salt of the earth and your light shines, only God can get the glory. When you get, a car, house, and become debt free and you lack or want nothing only God — the supplier of all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus, deserves the praise, glory, honor and thanks.

Thank You Lord for the opportunity to desire You more than the things of the world and for the opportunity of putting You first above everything and everyone, for seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and allowing You to add the rest. Remove the veils and cloth and reveal Your truth in the name of Jesus. Amen

A BETTER PLACE

TIME TO FOCUS ON HEAVENLY THINGS

A song says, “Great is thy faithfulness, O God our Father, there is no shadow of turning with thee. All I have needed thy hands have provided, great is thy faithfulness.” Abraham experienced God’s great faithfulness. Even though Hebrews 11:1 says faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen, Abraham showed us that faith is total obedience to God’s word, way and will.

Jesus demonstrates it by dieing for us in total obedience to God our heavenly Father with the trust and confidence that He is faithful to raise Him up from the dead with all power. Some people refer to this as blind faith but faith is not blind because the God we trust, believe and have confidence in sees and knows everything because He is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient.

Abraham, even though he did not see the city, was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, designed and built by God(Hebrews 11:10). Paul says it this way, “I press toward the high calling of God which is his prize (Philippians 3:14). Then he advises us in Hebrews 3:1 to be partakers of the heavenly calling. According to John 14:2, Jesus, our Messiah and Savior told us, before He left, that He has gone to prepare a place for us. Then in Revelation 22, God gave John a vision or glimpse of this place.

Therefore as Hebrews 11:13 points out, the truth and fact of the matter is we who are believers and Christians are foreigners, strangers and pilgrims on the earth. That’s why Paul tells us in Philippians 3:20 that our Citizenship is in heaven. So why are we so consumed or overtaken by the wealth of this earth when we have better to look forward to when we get home –  to that place created by God that is sinless, stress-less and trouble-free. Verse 16 in Hebrews 11 describes it as a better country, a heavenly homeland and that’s why God is not ashamed to be called our God because He already has a heavenly place (home) for us. Are you heading there? Or are you so consumed with earthly riches that will soon be destroyed?

Are you ready to relinquish your earthly citizenship for the heavenly one? Your earthly citizenship can’t compare with a heavenly one. In these last and perilous days, it’s time to focus on the heavenly treasures that God has promised us. In 1 Corinthians 2:9 that we have not seen or heard. Stop storing treasures on earth store it in heaven (Matthew 6:19).

There is a prerequisite to receiving your heavenly citizenship. Don’t worry, you don’t have to pay for it. That prerequisite is to welcome Jesus in to your heart. You can do so now going to the top of this blog, clicking on to the salvation page, following the instructions, and praying the salvation prayer.

EARTHLY TREASURES

Are you working hard to get to Heaven or hell? Most people work hard to acquire their dreams, which could be a house, car, boat or whatever, yet they are never satisfied. So there is a constant need for something bigger and better, and the more money you make the bigger the needs you seem to have, which grows into wants for  perishable items, thus replacing God in the process. There is nothing wrong in wanting better, if it will be lasting. That is why  John 6:27 tells us not to labour for the things that are perishable, but for that which endureth unto everlasting life. If you think material possessions or all these earthly treasures are not perishable, then why would fire or weather conditions, such as tornadoes and hurricanes, destroy everything you have worked so hard for all your life? Better yet, if you should die prematurely can you take anything with you?

Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt and where thieves break through and steal, instead lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where it is untouchable by the enemy as Matthew 6:19-20 tells us. However, we are reminded in 1 Timothy 6:7, that we brought nothing in this world, and it is a proven fact that we can carry nothing out. A mother’s womb is not big enough to produce a house or car along with a baby and a casket is only six by six, furthermore wherever you choose to go, be it heaven or hell there is no need for earthly items. So the question is, What profit is there if you gain or acquire the whole world and lose your soul in the process?

Luke 9:25 says it best, “For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? In acquiring these dreams and goals that people set for themselves, they lose sight of the Creator who owns it all; Because they are consumed by the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, but I must remind you that Galatians 6:7-8 says, “Be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap, for he that soweth to his flesh, shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Again I ask, Are you working hard to get to Heaven or hell?

One thing is for sure, no matter how hard you work it will not save you. Ephesians 2:8 – 10 makes it clear, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” The world with its lust and desires should never entice a Christian, because once you have tasted the bread of life, then you should never hunger and thirst for earthly possessions, because our desires and tastes should be for spiritual and heavenly things. Psalm 34:8 says, O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusts in Him.

As Hebrew 2:3 says, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation…” Then Hebrews 3:15 says, “While it is said, Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in provocation.” Don’t delay, just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, and start acquiring heavenly treasures.

CONQUEROR

If you are not anchored in the Lord how can you conquer the difficulties in your life? Jesus is the only solid rock we can be  anchored to in order to be conquerors, of fear, doubt, sickness, debt, etc. Who are you anchored to? Your family, your job, your friends, maybe it’s your Pastor; Must you be reminded, that it is only because of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, why we are not just conquerors, but more than conquerors in all things, such as tribulation, distress, persecution, sickness, disease — you name it. Romans 8:37 says,”Nay, in all things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.”   The Bible said it, now it’s up to us to believe that we can conquer our fears, doubts, sickness, debts, and any obstacle the devil and his agents put in our way, don’t allow him to kill, steal and destroy you, because Jesus made you more than a conqueror.

“For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us,” we see this in 2 Corinthians 1:20. Then 2 Peter 3:9 confirms that God is not slack concerning  His promises…The question now is: Are you going  to allow the devil to take advantage of you, now that you know that you are more than a conqueror? Remember also that in Luke 10:19, Jesus gave us the power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt us. So why are you allowing sickness, trials, tribulation, and other things to hurt you and keep you down, depressed, and above all influencing you to give up? Must you be reminded again that you are a conqueror with power and nothing by any means can hurt you.

“Now thanks be unto God, who always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of His knowledge by us in every place; For we are unto God a sweet savor of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish.” (2 Corinthians 2:14-15). “For whatever is born of God overcometh the world and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith; Who is it that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?” Do you believe? If you do, then you are a conqueror, if not then here is your opportunity to start believing. Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, so that you too can become a conqueror.

As a song says, “On  Christ the solid rock, I stand all other ground is sinking sand,” when you are anchored to Jesus we will not be tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive (Ephesians 4:14). To be a conqueror you must anchor on to Jesus, for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all (1 Timothy 2:5-6). Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one goes to God without going through Him (John 14:6).
