THE PRAYER OF FAITH

“Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you,whosoever shall say unto this mountain,be thou removed,and be thou cast into the sea,and shall not doubt in his heart,but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass,he shall have whatever he saith. Therefore,I say unto you,whatever things ye desire,when ye pray,believe that ye receive them,and ye shall have them”{ Mark 11:22-24}. And this is the confidence that we have in Him,that,if we ask anything according to His will,He heareth us;and if we know that He hears us,whatever we ask,we know that we have the petitions that ee desired of Him,as 1John 5:14-15 tells us.  You lust and desire,yet you have not,because you ask not. You ask,and receive not,because ue ask amiss,that ye consume it upon your lusts as James 4:2&3 tells us. However,”Be anxious for nothing,but in everything,by prayer and supplication with Thanksgiving,let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God,which surpasses all understanding,shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus,says Philippians 4:6&7.

UNTIL YOU SAY,I DO. YOU DON’T.

Most people have problems in relationships,because they compromise. However,the folks who love and fear God,will be obedient to His word. Why would you want to jeopardize your relationship with God,and risk the opportunity of going to heaven. The question is what is more important to you,a night of sin,which leads to hell,or as Ephesians 5:27 that you want to be presented as a glorious church,not having spot,or wrinkle,or any such thing;but that it should be holy and without blemish. Why as a christian would you want to go against God’s commands and plans for your life. Why would you relinquish your royalty,to go back in the darkness after He brought you out into His marvelous light as 1Peter 2:9 states. Is having an illegitimate relationship,better than obeying God? Has fornication and adultery better than eternal life? What’s important to you ? Doing what God says,or doing what you feel or want? Is it such a hard choice to love and obey God,or your flesh and it’s lust. So you don’t have sex or children until you say I do in holy matrimony. As Romans 12:1&2 says,”I beseech you therefore brethren by the mercies of God,that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, that is holy and acceptable unto God,which is your reasonable service;and be not conformed to this world,and be transformed by the renewing of your mind,that ye may prove what is that good,and acceptable,and perfect will of God. It’s not God’s will for you to disobey,muchless sin against Him. When you have a relationship with God,then you will not be so eager to sin against Him, if you don’t know God nor His Son Jesus,whom,He sent to die fir you,then get started by going to the top of this blog,then click on the salvation page,and follow the instructions,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you. DON’T CHEAT ON GOD,IT’S NOT WORTH IT.

WHAT IS IT,ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

It’s pathetic ,when people would rather seek google,than seek God. They would rather search the internet than search the scriptures. They prefer to depend on their jobs,as their only source of income,instead of the God who owns the cattle upon a thousand hills as Psalms 50:10 tells us. Have society reach to that level,where they stop believing ? Have they reached to that point,where they settle for less,make no mistake hell is a far less settlement,than eternity. What profit is there if you gain the world and lose your soul,it says in Matthew 16:26. Why is it people always look for answers in the wrong book,or the wrong person. If you have to file your taxes you don’t go to the doctor for help,or if you are sick,you don’t go to an accountant. If you need to learn Spanish,you don’t read a book on French. Yet,God is a doctor,lawyer,accountant, healer,redeemer,and many other things. And His Book, the teaches you everything,in every language,advises you,and help you. “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by the inspiration of God,and is profitable for doctrine,for reproof,for correction,for inspiration in righteousness,that the man of God may be perfect,thoroughly furnished unto all good works”{ 2 Timothy 3:15-17}. Why doesn’t people understand the Bible? Because,1 Corinthians 2:14 says,”But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God;for they are foolishness unto him,neither can he know them,because they are spiritually discerned”. However,you don’t have to be foolish,you can receive the things of the Spirit of God,just by accepting and believing in Jesus,to get started,just go to the top if this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead,and direct you for the rest of your life.

GOD WANTS TO FORGIVE YOU

Even though God’s grace and mercies are endless,you are not,and until you accept His offer,or gift of eternal life,you are expendable.God is willing,ready and able to forgive everyone of their sin,it’s such a travesty when people refuse to capitalize on this offer,or deal of a lifetime. Does people have a desire to be saved? Do they even have a clue,what they are being saved from? The choice is everlasting life or everlasting torment in fire and brimstone.What they don’t seem to understand is that,As children of the most High God,we are redeemed through the blood of Jesus,so that we can go boldly before the throne of grace,and obtain mercy,it makes you wonder if folks don’t realize that they need to capitalized or take advantage of His mercy while it’s available. The fact is,because,Jesus died for us,God promises in 1John 1:9 that if we confess our sins,He is faithful,and just to forgive us of our sins,and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Even before Jesus came,God gave us that option,one of my favorites is 2 Chronicles 7:14,”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 I will hear from heaven,and will forgive their sin,and will heal their land”. He even makes it easier for us in Romans 10:9-10,” That if thou confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead,thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness,and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. Does people nowadays have a desire to be saved ? 1 Corinthians 6:11 reminds us that,”.. Ye are washed,but ye are sanctified,but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus,and by the Spirit of our God. So if you want to be saved,and receive eternal life,get started by going to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct your path. Alleluia!

DURING TRIALS AND TRIBULATION

Who is your first option when you are faced,with trials and tribulation ? Is it your family,friends,or the pastor. Most people wants to know what to do,during trials and tribulation,the answer is simple,seek God. Deuteronomy 4:30-31 says,”When thou are in tribulation,and all things are come upon thee,even in the latter days,if thou turn to the Lord thy God,anf shall be obedient unto His voice. For the Lord thy God is a merciful God,He will not forsake thee,neither destroy thee,nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which He swore unto them”. Did you know that,”Many are the afflictions of the righteous;but the Lord delivereth him out of them all” {Psalms 34:19}. So why would anyone look anywhere else for help ? Is it because,you don’t know Him or have a relationship with Him ? Or don’t you take Him at His word ? What is it that would make you not seek,or tur to God ? Is it unbelief,hopelessness,or just sin. However,the most rewarding and comforting scripture for me is 2 Corinthians 4:15-18,”For all things are for your sakes,that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many may increase{and redound} to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish,yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction,which is but for a moment,worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,while we look not at the things which are seen,but at the things which are not seen;for the things which are seen are temporal,but the things which are not seen are eternal”. If you are a christian this should be comforting,and remember what Philippians 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing,but in everything,by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving,let your requests be made known unto God,and the peace of God,which passeth all understanding,shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”. I would rather go to God in prayer,than anyone else in the whole world. If you don’t know God,nor His only begotten Son,Jesus,just go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you the rest of the way.

LET GOD FIGHT FOR YOU

Do not be afraid,stand still,and see the salvation of the Lord,which He will accomplish for you today…. The Lord will fight for you,and you shall hold your peace {Exodus 14:13-14}.” Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude;for the battle is not yours,but God’s {2 Chronicles 20:15}. When God fights for you,then victory is guaranteed ,and as Romans 16:20 says,”And the God of peace shall bruise satan under your feet shortly..”. When God fights for you,He fights,Psalm 64:7-10 gives us a preview of how God fights,”And God shall shoot at them with an arrow;suddenly shall they be wounded. So they shall their own tongue to fall upon themselves;all that see them shall flee away;and all men shall fear,and shall declare the work of God;for they shall wisely consider concerning His doing. The righteous shall be glad in the Lord,and shall trust in Him;and all the upright in heart shall glory”. However,one of the reasons God fights for us,2 Thessalonians 1: 6-9 says,”Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;and to you who are troubled,rest with us,when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God,and they obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ; who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord,and from the glory of His power”. Listen to what 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 tells us,”For though we walk in the flesh,we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds,casting down imaginations,and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God,and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;and having in readiness to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled”. For God to fight for you,you must have a relationship with Him,that is holy and righteous,that’s why Psalm 91 says,He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.. So here is an opportunity to start a relationship with God through His Son,Jesus. Just go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions,then allow the indwelling Holy Spirit to lead and guide you the rest of the way.

WALKING TO PLEASE GOD

“.. We beseech you,brethren,and exhort you by the Lord Jesus,that as ye received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God,so ye would abound more and more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God,even your sanctification,that ye should abstain from fornication; That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor,not in the lust of sensuality (concupiscience),even as the Gentiles (ungodly) who know not God; that no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter,because the Lord is the avenger of all such,as we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness,but unto holiness. He,therefore,that despiseth,despiseth not man but God,who hath also given unto us His Holy spirit” {1Thessalonians 4:1-8}. Then Romans 12:1-2 says it this way,”I beseech you therefore,brethren,by the mercies of God,that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,holy,acceptable unto God,which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world,but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,that ye may prove what is that good,and acceptable,and perfect,will of God”. Finally, Ephesians 5:1-17 gives us a list of things,which I will list a few ,but if you are serious about your walk with God,go and read it all and do likewise,it says,” Be ye,therefore,followers of God,as dear children;and walk in love,as Christ also hath loved us,and hath given Himself for us as an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor… For ye were once darkness,but now are ye light in the Lord;walk as children of light. For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth,proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but,rather,reprove them.. See,then,that ye walk circumspectly,not as fools but as wise. Rrdeeming the time,because the days are evil. Wherefore,be ye not unwise but understanding what the will of the Lord is”. The Bible from Genesis to Revelation teaches us and gives us testimonies of how God wants us to walk and live for Him. This is just a few guidelines,so to know more study the word,and for those who don’t know God ,nor His Son Jesus Christ,you can get started,by going to the top of this blog,click in to the salvation page,and then allow the Holy Spirit to lead,and direct your path. Finally as 1 Chronicles 22:19 says,”Now set your heart,and your soul to seek the Lord your God …”.
