WHAT IF

What if God decided not to give us life,health ,or strength today? What if He decided to fire us from the job we put before Him? What if He decided to take away that person you love so much over Him? What if He decided to take back His sun,moon,stars,flowers,and so many other things He blesses us with,which we don’t even appreciate? How ungrateful,unappreciative, and uncaring  society has become, their lifestyles,and behavior is so obnoxious ,repugnant,and offensive it shows little or no respect,fear or reverence for God and His creation. What if He took it all back? How would you feel ? Would you acknowledge and recognize Him then? Or would you just keep on blaming Him or the devil for your mistakes and choices? Which proves 2 Timothy 3 accuracy and truth,which states,” This I 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,trucebreakers,false accusers,incontinent,fierce,despisers 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 if it,from such turn away..”. If you are in any of the above category,you can change all that around instantly,by accepting God’s gift of His son,believe,accept,and live for and like Him,you can get started by going to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page and get started. One way of telling God thanks,and have an attitude if gratitude for all He has done for you,is to live for Him,in spirit and truth. As Hosea 4:6 says,
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…”.and 3 John 1:4 says,”I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth”.

DON’T  get distracted,STAY FOCUSED

HEBREWS 12:2 ”
looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God”.

Most of us lose focus and are sidetracked or derailed from our goals, because we allow the enticement and excitement of the things of the world to cloud or darken our vision. This is the main reason why so many people have failed to achieve their goals in life and end up falling in the ditches, cracks and crevices of life; they fall and most refuse to get back up again. Just like Peter who took his eyes of off Jesus while walking on water, we see how easily we can fall when we allow fear, the elements and people to derail us and sink us (Matthew 14:30). However, if we stay focused by obeying God’s Word we will not fall.

Proverbs 4:25-27 “Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of they feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.” 

Paul took focusing on God further by telling us in Philippians 3:13-14 to, forget those things which are behind, and reach forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. What are you focusing on or pressing toward? Is it the kingdom of God or heaven? Matthew 6:33 tells us to seek God’s kingdom first, so that He will be able to add the rest. If you focus on God, He will focus on you.

What we focus on will eventually lead to heaven or hell, joy or sorrow, life eternal or death and torment. Proverbs 28:26 tells us that, “He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, but he who walks  in wisdom is kept safe.” There is a path that seems right unto a man, but at the end is destruction (Proverbs 14:12). Keep your eyes on God, He has His eyes on you.

Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.”

So what are you focused on? If you want your focus to be on God then receive Jesus into your heart today! Just visit the Salvation Prayer page under the title of this website. Then after you’ve received the salvation of the Lord start reading God’s Word, which is the Holy Bible.

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.

YOU ARE NEVER ALONE

Loneliness won’t leave me alone,the song says,but the devil is a liar.WHY DO YOU FEEL ALONE? The truth is you are never forsaken or alone because the God that owns the world and everything in it including you, never slumbers and sleep. In Joshua 1:5 and Hebrews 13:5 He promises to never ever leave us or forsake us. On many occasions God proves to us that He is true to His word. In Daniel 3:25, we see that there was a fourth person in the fire with the three Hebrew boys, when they were thrown in the fiery furnace. So, if God was there with them, then  why would you think that He will not be with you? Have you forgotten that He is our God and we are His children, adopted through Jesus Christ His only begotten Son. Unless you don’t believe in Him and have not confessed Him as Lord and your Savior and if you don’t then you are not clothed in your right mind and you are hanging out with the wrong person, and that is the devil. God never breaks His promises and we can’t hide from Him, which confirms that He never leaves or forsake us. David realized this fact, and wrote, “Whither shall I go from your Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from your  presence?”(Psalms 139:7) Have you forgotten that He is Omnipotent – all powerful, Omniscient – all knowing, and Omnipresent – present everywhere. Therefore, King David realized that God was with him no matter where he goes, and that’s why we should never feel alone because God is with us.

All over the Bible we see where He is always with us like, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me,” Psalms 23:4. Then, Isaiah 43:1-3 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 though walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” God wants us to know that no matter what, as a Christian, “We have this treasure in earthen vessels (our bodies), that the excellency of the power may be of God and not 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; 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” this is in 2 Corinthians 4:7-10. So, why do we feel forsaken and alone? The God who owns the universe is with His children, and He never slumbers or sleeps.

In John 16:33, Jesus reminded us to remember  the things He told us, “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.” Remember He came not only to save us, but to show us how to live like conquerors. Read Romans 8:31 -39, it says, “What  shall we then say to these things? If God be for us who can be against us? He that spared not His own son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? Shall God that justfieth? Who is it that condemeth? Shall Christ that died, yea rather that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us? What shall separate us from the love of Christ ?…For I am persuaded that neither  death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creation, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.”

The Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble, and they who know your name will put their trust in you; For you, Lord hast not forsaken those who seek you.” Psalm 9:9 – 10.  Don’t listen to the devil you are never alone ; Instead listen to what David said,in Psalms 37:25,” I HAVE BEEN YOUNG,AND NOW AM OLD;YET  HAVE I NOT SEEN THE RIGHTEOUS FORSAKEN,NOR HIS SEED BEGGING BREAD”. Are you a righteous person ? Then there is no reason in the world for you to feel  forsaken or alone , find the Bible and meditate on the words of God. Have you accepted God’s gift of His son,to be in righteousness,John 14 :6 ,tells us that Jesus is the only way,the truth and the life,and no one goes to the Father without going through Him(Jesus); So here is an oppertunity,If you have not accepted salvation through Jesus Christ ,then you can do so now by going to the Salvation Prayer page at the top of this website.

WE HAVE THE VICTORY

You are VICTORIOUS and POWERFUL in Christ Jesus.

You therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

” So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ”.
(I Corinthians 15:54-57)
-So let us celebrate and give God all the praise, all the glory and all the honor. For in Christ Jesus we have all that pertains to life and godliness.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

IT’S NOT AN EASY ROAD

Nothing in life is ever easy. Nothing runs as smoothly as we all planned, but just imagine if everything goes as easy as we hope, planned or prayed for, then  how would we know our strengths and weaknesses. What lessons would life had taught us to move to the next level. Would we even need faith, hope, trust or confidence in God? The road to the kingdom of God will never be easy, there will be potholes, roadblocks, and a whole lot of  heartaches, headaches and more on this journey; but the beauty of it all is that we are not traveling alone, because God is telling us the same thing He told Joshua years ago. He is reminding us today to “Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them; for the Lord thy God, He it is, who doth go with thee, He will not fail thee nor forsake thee.” – Deuteronomy 31:6 & 8

We need to get the devil out of our minds with his discouragement, complaints, murmuring, failures, and do as Hebrews 13:6 says,”Let your manner of life be without covetousness, and be content with such things as ye have; For He hath said, I will never leave thee or forsake thee.” There is your confirmation one from the Old and the other from the New Testament. What God wants to teach you on the way to your destiny, you will never learn taking a short cut or the easy way. For example in Exodus 13:17-18, we see that God didn’t allow  His people to go the easy and shortest  route when they were released from bondage; to strip them and cleanse  them with His word took a lifetime for some of them, because they allowed the enemy to stay in their minds and taunt, whip, and abuse them. So to free them He had to get them to focus on their supreme God and what  He could do.

It may not look like or be an easy road,but we are encouraged by each other,that’s why Hebrews 10 :22 -25 tell us to draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith…v.23 let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering,for He is faithful that promised…v.24-25 tells us to consider each other ,to provoke unto love and good works…and never forsaking the assembling of each other for exhortation, encouragement and support,then when we go to Hebrew 11 we are encouraged by those who have been down those same roads and make it ,because of their faith,trust and confidence in God.So whats your excuse now?

Even though God provided an escape route through the Red Sea, where in their mind it was an obstacle, God showed them  how great and powerful He was, He put a hedge of protection around them day and night, fed them, gave them clean water, that was not bottled, or from a tap. No matter what God did to prove His love, the Israelites were never satisfied, because as Bob Marley said in his song, ” Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, only you alone can free your mind.” That was their biggest problem then, they didn’t free themselves  from  mental slavery and today we have the same problems. The only difference is that  the devil uses a different tactic to enslave us, with hurts, pains, disappointments, heartaches, things that discombobulate our minds and take our minds off  of God, our only help.

People who always choose the easy way out always make mistakes, have no faith, no trust, no hope and no patience in the God of the universe. They are the ones who never acknowledge God so that He can direct their path. They think they know it all, while God says, in Isaiah 55:8-9, that our ways and thoughts are not like His, and if we wait on Him we will renew our strength  so that we will mount up with wings like eagle above and beyond turbulence, distractions and the issues of life. No He never told us it would be easy, but we know all things are possible when we believe and trust Him like Jesus did.

The free mind cannot be manipulated,dominated,intimidated or controlled by the enemy,because Jesus made us more than conquerors,He gave us the keys to the kingdom of heaven,and the power and authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy,so that nothing can by any means hurt us (Luke 10:19). So why are you not free,emancipated or liberated ?

When we are captivated by the things of this world,it’s hard to free our minds and the road to heaven gets harder,but when you apply the word of God which is quick and power,and sharper than any two edge sword …(Hebrew 4 :12) it will be more than enough to eradicate the tactics of the enemy;then you better put on your defensive outfit called the Armor of God in (Ephesians 6: 11 -18) . Are you willing  and ready to listen and be obedient to God ? Are you willing and ready to trust in God? Then you have to start by accepting His Son Jesus.  Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions.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 Him who is Immortal and Invisible, the only wise God, our Savior, be glory, praise, honor,and thanks for using me to release this message. In Jesus name, Amen.
Remember,what Jesus said, These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
(John 16:33). Now deposit that in the bank of your life,and tell the devil ,go to hell,and burn.

DIVIDED AND FAILING

If the church unite,and pray, instead of worrying and complaining, then the gates of hell will not prevail against us. What if all the churches in the world obeyed God’s word,and actually do what it says,
” If My people who are called by My name will 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 heal their land.{2 Chronicles 7:14}.
Or what Ephesians 4:2-6 suggest,”With all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all”. God would be pleased, and the world would be better. Only if every denomination would look at it’s organization as a part of the body of Christ and do what it is assigned by God to do, then the Church would be stronger and more powerful than ever before. Denomination is the main cause of division,because they follow man’s mandate and not God’s commands.
Paul eloquently describes how the body of Christ should function in 1 Corinthians 12:14-16. However,because of division in the body of Christ the Church has weakened drastically, and is not walking in the power and authority that Jesus gives us to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, knowing that nothing shall by any means hurt us.

“For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?” 1 Corinthians 12:14-16

The Church with its denominationalism has turned against each other. Instead of uniting we are divided and that’s the reason why the weapons are formed and the enemy can speak. But the devil is a liar, and we will not allow Him to sift us as wheat, because Jesus has made us more than conquerors. As believers we are in a war that will never end until Jesus returns. So let’s fight the good fight by picking up our armor listed in Ephesians 6 and send the enemy running with his lies and deceits. Satan is already defeated so let’s make sure he remembers it.

Let us follow God’s word; we are many members with denominational names, but one body as we see in 1 Corinthians 12:18-20. “God has set the members, each one of them in the body just as it pleased Him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet one body.” So remember we are one body, but many members. Therefore, the part of the body that seems non-productive, let us honor them, so that there is no schism in the body. Jesus tells us to love one another (John 13:34-35) so why are we fussing and fighting and saying that one denomination is better than the other. We are all one body, one family who serve the true and living God. Therefore let us care for each other in love and unity.

Yes, we all have different nationalities, gifts, personalities and more, but the key ingredient that holds us all together and empowers us is the Holy Spirit. We are all entitled to the same promises through Jesus Christ who is the head of the Church. Your pastor, bishop, or ministry leader is not the head, Jesus is.

Philippians 2:1-8 “Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like minded. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.”

Romans 10:12 lets us know that there is no difference between the Jews and the Greeks for it is the same Lord over all, who is rich unto us all that call upon Him. Denominations are really demon nations.

Jesus, in response to the thoughts of the Pharisees after he healed a blind and mute man, said, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25

As the body of Christ, let us stand together in Jesus, for it is in Jesus that we are one.

Have you joined the body of Christ yet by confessing that Jesus is Lord and by believing that God raised Him from the dead? If not confess it now and believe now. Visit the salvation page for more information.

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 ,like the day of Pentecost,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.

 

You Can’t take anything

As he came from his mother’s womb, naked shall he return, To go as he came; And he shall take nothing from his labor Which he may carry away in his hand. And this also is a severe evil— Just exactly as he came, so shall he go. And what profit has he who has labored for the wind?
{Ecclesiastes 5:15-16 }

When you see a man selling handkerchiefs and still sweating profusely in traffic, it tells you that possession is not the same as ownership! Your life belongs to God; you are only having it but you don’t own it. So, be careful what you do with your life before the owner asks for it.
The last wishes of Alexander the Great………
On his death bed, Alexander summoned his army generals and told them his three ultimate wishes:
1. The best doctors should carry his coffin …
2. The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, precious stones) should be scattered along the procession to the cemetery …
3. His hands should be let loose, so they hang outside the coffin for all to see !!
One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual requests asked Alexander to explain .
Here is what Alexander the Great had to say :
1. “I want the best doctors to carry my coffin to demonstrate that in the face of death , even the best doctors in the world have no power to heal ..”
2. “I want the road to be covered with my treasure so that everybody sees that material wealth acquired on earth , will stay on earth..”
3. I want my hands to swing in the wind, so that people understand that we come to this world empty handed and we leave this world empty handed after the most precious treasure of all is exhausted, and that is : TIME.
We do not take to our grave any material wealth. TIME is our most precious treasure because it is LIMITED. We can produce more wealth, but we cannot produce more time.
When we give someone our time, we actually give a portion of our life that we will never take back . Our time is our life !.

Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
{I Timothy 6:6-12}

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves 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 but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.(1 John 2:15-17).
The best present that you can give to your family is your time and to God is your life..
May God grant YOU plenty of TIME, to share this important message with all your contacts.
