POWER IN HIS NAME

There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain. Philippians 2:9-11 clearly states,” Wherefore God also has highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every Name;That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. Then Hebrews 1:3-4 says, “Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they”.
The Name of Jesus is the Most Powerful Name in Heaven, on Earth and under the Earth. His Name is above all names and More Excellent than every name. In John 14:13 Jesus said: whatsoever all of you shall ask in my name, that will I do…
John 16:23 Jesus said: …Whatsoever all of you shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you, (Jesus is the only Name by which you can obtain anything from God the Father). No other name compares to the Name of JESUS. There is Authority in His Name. There is Power in His Name. There is Salvation, Healing and Deliverance in His Name, and no one can get to heaven without calling upon His Name. Hallowed be your Name O’ Lord, and Blessed be the Name of the Lord. Are you affiliated or connected to that name ? Are you aware or even know the person who has that name? Well to get started just go to the top of this blog, click unto the salvation page and follow the instructions, then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you for the rest of your life. To God be all the glory,praise and honor.

HOPE

Sometimes we as Christians act like we have no hope, no God, no redeemer, no Savior and it’s because we are conformed to this world and not transformed by the renewing of our minds. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 reminds us, we should not be ignorant like the unbelievers who are distressed, and sorrowful because they have no hope.

“But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

If we believe that Jesus died and rose again because God raised Him from the dead, we will be saved and when He returns we who believe will all go up to meet Him as we see stated Romans 10:9, 1 Thessalonians 4:14. Remember and keep in mind what John 3:16-17 says, this is where the complete showing or manifestation of God’s love for us started. Therefore, we have no reason to be distraught and sorrowful when our loved ones, friends or whomever that believes in Christ is no longer with us, it should be a celebration, because even though we will miss them they will be going to a better place.

We have hope because we know that 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 says, the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive (and in rightstanding with God) shall be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. As a result of this, when it’s windy, I think of the day of Pentecost; and when it thunders, my mind starts to wonder and I start to listen for the shout, the voice of an angel and the trumpet. Are you prepared and ready if Christ should come today or are you too busy collecting and accumulating the things of this world that you can’t take with you?

God wants us to comfort each other with words of His Son’s return, not manipulating, cursing and chastising each other — that’s God’s job. We should put our trust, confidence, hope and faith in God’s word, which is full of His promises; and also in Him because He does not lie.

Part of our job as Christians is to encourage each other and remind each other that Jesus made us more than conquerors (Romans 8:37). Jesus says He will be with us always, in Matthew 28:20, even unto the end of the age. This is a promise! Even God has promised that He will never leave or forsake us ( in the Old Testament and it resurfaces in the New Testament), He is our helper and because of this, we should not fear (Isaiah 41:9-10; Hebrews 13:5-6).

“You who I have taken from the ends of the earth , and called from its farthest regions, and said to you, ‘You are my servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away: Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed for I am Your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I uphold you with my righteous right hand.‘” – Isaiah 41:9-10

“Let your conversation be without covetousness, be content with such things as ye have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear, what can man do to me?” – Hebrews 13:5-6

Confidence in God’s presence is our comfort and the joy of the Lord is our strength, because He rewards those who diligently seek Him. And if other people don’t comfort or encourage you, do as David did and encourage yourself in the Lord.

The offer to receive Christ into your heart is still here. To receive that offer go to the Salvation page at the top of this blog and follow the instructions. If you have turned away from God, there is a strong possibility that He is waiting for you to turn back to Him; rededicate yourself to Him. You are already reconciled to God by Christ, the next step is yours.

All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message. I pray that He will give all who read this message the spiritual gifts necessary to comprehend and act upon His word. I exercise my power and authority in the name of Jesus to bind every tactic of the enemy that will try to stop, hinder, or prevent this word from reaching its intended people. I ask the Lord to loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the Omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.

QUIT WORRYING

Worries, problems, trials, and tribulations are big, but they are not bigger than God. Since this is so, why as a Christian, are you so worried, shocked, surprised, disturbed and fearful of the increase in violence or sin.
The Bible says, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despiser of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, having a form of Godliness, but denying the power thereof, from such things turn away.”(2 Timothy 3:1-5). 
So, why are Christians so worried? We already know the outcome. Jesus said to Martha,in Luke 10:41~42 “…you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed,and Mary has chosen that good part,which will not be taken away from her”. The good part she chose was to hear the word of God. Have you chosen the good part? Remember,faith cometh by hearing the word of God,as Romans 10:17 points out. Furthermore, greater is He who is in us, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).

As seasoned Christians we are the first to know, what is happening as 2 Peter 3:3-4 says,”Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying where is the promise of His coming?…” Here is another warning, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, and  is of the world, and the world passeth away, and the lust thereof; but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. Little children, it is the last time; and as you have heard that the antichrist shall come, even now there are many antichrist, whereby we know that it is the last time…”(1 John 2:15-20) So why worry? Are you in right standing with God?  You better get a spiritual check up.

Jude 17-21 says,”But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ; How they told you that their will be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lust. These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. But you beloved, building yourselves up on the on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” It’s time to stop worrying and do as 1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things, hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” In John 14:14, Jesus reminds us that if we ask anything in His Name, He will do it. Put your faith into action and ask Him to take care of the problems, so you can stop worrying.

“Fret not thyself  because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity, for they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord and do good, so shall thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord;trust also in Him,and He shall bring it to pass” (Psalms 37:1-5) Why worry when you can pray? “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace; In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us; We are troubled on every side yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted but not forsaken; cast down but not destroyed.” (2 Corinthians 4:7-10) Jesus tells us in John 14:1-4 not to allow our hearts to be troubled, because He has gone to prepare a better place for us, and will return for us. Are you ready for His return? Nevertheless, we according to His promise, look for new Heavens and a new earth, in which dwelleth righteousness. (2 Peter 3:13) Are you looking at the future? Or are you dwelling on the present day as if it will not change?

Better days are coming.

If you don’t know God or His son, or if you want to rededicate your life to God, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, follow the instructions, and pray the salvation prayer.

All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message.

DON’T FORGET

Deuteronomy 8:11-19
Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:  Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;  And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;  Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;  Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;  Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;  And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.  But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.  And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. The major problem in society is that they forget God,and has become lovers of self more than God. As a result lawlessness has increased,greed has catapulted to it’s maximum capacity,and the devil thinks he is winning the battle,forgetting that over two thousand years ago,Jesus gave us the victory. Unfortunately,some folks choose to rebel against God and His plans for mankind,and like the devil and his followers,fire and brimstone awaits them in hell. However,if you are reading this blog,and don’t know Jesus or never accepted Him as your personal Lord and saviour,then here is an opportunity,just go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, follow the instructions, then allow the Holy Spirit to lead, and direct you for the rest of your life. Why do you have to accept Jesus? Because,in John 14:6
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

ARE YOU READY TO GO

Be Prepared, Get Ready, Let’s Go, The Place Is Ready!

We are in this world, but we are not of this world (John 17:14 & 16). Hebrews 11:13b says we are strangers and pilgrims on earth. Our citizenship is in heaven as Philippians 3:20 tells us.
The devil didn’t give it to us, therefore he can’t take it or revoke it because it was signed by the blood of the Lamb and sealed by the Holy Spirit. So stretch your faith beyond the realms of this world and vision or look through John’s eyes in Revelation 21 of the new heaven and earth, where there will be no more tears, bills, sickness, etc.
Let’s start to desire and prepare ourselves to go there when Jesus returns.
He is preparing it and it’s about ready for us to take our rightful place there.
Are you ready?
GO to the salvation page above if you want your life to be in Christ and in Christ alone.

All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message. I pray that He will give all who read this message the spiritual gifts necessary to comprehend and act upon His word. I exercise my power and authority in the name of Jesus to bind every tactic of the enemy that will try to stop, hinder, or prevent this word from reaching its intended people. I loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.

NEVER FORSAKEN OR ALONE

Sometimes we feel forsaken, abandoned, and alone, with no genuine friends, and no family members who is not looking for a handout. Other times you are around people and you still feel alone, and just wish they would go, because they have no positive input into your life. However, God wants us to know that we should never ever feel that way, because even though we don’t see Him in the natural, He is with us, and even though He might be comforting someone else His Omnipresence affords Him the privilege of being anywhere  and everywhere at once. But, whenever you are feeling despondent, forsaken, or abandoned just pick up the good book called the Bible and allow God’s word and His promises to soak into your system, and increase your faith to the point that you find comfort in His word.

God has made many promises to us when we get into funks (or messes) like this, and we must remind ourselves of this daily. For instance He told us in the Old and New Testament that He will never leave or forsake us. It’s written in Deuteronomy 31:6 and says, “Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them (for example: people, problems, loneliness,whatever it is); for the Lord thy God, He it is who doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” Then again in Hebrews 13:5 it says, “Let your manner of life be without covetousness, and be content with such things as you have; for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” This was not meant for those people only, it’s meant for us today also.

Well if that didn’t make you feel better here is another in Isaiah 43:1 b to verse 2 which says, “…Fear not; for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame scorch thee.” We have evidence of God’s promises fulfilled from the parting of the red sea, and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego in the fiery furnace, who came out without a cinch (Daniel 3:34-37). These are accounts of people who trust, rely and depended on God for everything, and He never left, forsaked or abandoned any of them as Hebrews 11 validates.

But one of my favorites is 2 Corinthians 4:7-10 which says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled, but not in despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”

To God be the glory, praise, honor and thanks for using me to inform you this day. May His Holy Spirit give you the necessary tools needed to grasp and act on His words. And I by the power given to me in Matthew 18:18 and Luke 10:19, I bind the hand of the enemy and its forces, who try to steal this word, and blind your eyes, and harden your heart from receiving this truth and acting upon it. I ask God, the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.

NEWS-FLASH

“EXTRA, EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT!” Most people will kill to get the scoop or dirt on some celebrity, politician, or anyone they don’t like or care about; whether it’s good or bad news, true or false they just don’t care. So they go out of their way to buy books and newspapers on every juicy detail they can find, or they go to Facebook, Twitter, or any source available to get information. But the Bible that has the best scoop in the world, they are not eager to read. The Bible is God’s broadcasting book, it tells about the past, present and future events, and about a God who loves and cares for us, how to get to Him, how to receive all His promises, grace, mercies, favor and blessings. The Bible should be the news flash that we are interested in reading, yet we refuse to read the word that speaks life into our miserable and broken circumstances, and give us hope and a bright future.

Let me give you a few scoops from  the Bible: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instructions.” – (Proverbs 1:7) You will never see that as a newsflash because people refuse to hear the truth, and only fools reject God, our Creator’s, word and His only begotten son Jesus Christ, because this is a scoop that is a fact,there is no guessing or wondering it’s a fact. Whether you like it or not, believe it or not, accept it or not, God’s word never lies. Let me stay in Proverbs since it is the wisdom book, and most folks could use some wisdom. Proverbs 4:7 tells us, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore, get wisdom; and with all thy getting, get understanding.”

Then James 1:5 tells us, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men liberally (freely), and upbraideth not (without reproach), and it will be given to him…” Do you want it? It’s free, just ask. Remember that the  wisdom from above is pure (James 3:17), it’s not mans watered down wisdom, because the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, for it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness,” and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise that they are futile” 1 Corinthians 3:19-20. This is the best news flash that money can’t buy and the devil does not want you to hear it because he wants you to perish in hell with him.

Here is another news-flash from God’s broadcasting book, “But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day, the way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble; My child (son) give attention (pay attention, listen) to my words incline your ears to my sayings, do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh; keep your heart with diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:18-23. There are so many good news flashes and juicy scoops in the Bible, try reading it.

I give all the praise, glory, honor and thanks to God for using me, one of His humble servants to relay this message to you, may He give you the wisdom, knowledge and understanding to read and comply to His word in Jesus name. Amen.
