DON’T  COMPROMISE  

“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:26).

“This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness”{Ephesians  4:17-24}.

LISTEN  :

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they  are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them”; [Romans 1:18‭-‬32].

SOLUTION:

“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded”[James 4:7‭-‬8].

THEREFORE:

“let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one  another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching”;[Hebrews 10:22‭-‬25].

WHY WORRY

​DON’T WORRY;stop worrying 

Matthew 6:25-34 

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;  and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

HOW TO COMBAT WORRY, FEAR,DOUBT,ETC.

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. Do you look at things according to the outward appearance? If anyone is convinced in himself that he is Christ’s, let him again consider this in himself, that just as he is Christ’s, even so we are Christ’s”{ 2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬7}

OUR GOD GIVEN AUTHORITY AND POWER.

Authority -vs- Power, The Difference 

Luke 10:19 (AMP)

Behold! I have given unto you AUTHORITY and POWER to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in anyway harm you. 

AUTHORITY: Spiritual Rights delegated to us by God to make decisions, give orders, and to enforce obedience. 

POWER: Supernatural, Spiritual Strength and Ability to do and to carry out the work of the Lord. 

+God is Unlimited and Infinite in Power and Authority. 

+The degree of our God given Authority and Power always corresponds to the level of maturity we demonstrate in Love, Truth, Righteousness, Holiness and Faith in God.

+God is not holding back His Authority and Power from us. 

+Let us do those things that are always pleasing to the Father so that His Authority and Power (the Holy Spirit’s Anointing) can be released and increased upon us for the work of His Ministry. 

•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him. 

•BLESSED we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

DON’T  ACT LIKE A CHRISTIAN ,BE ONE.

Just going to church  doesn’t  make you a Christian . As a matter  of  fact  your lifestyle  tells  not only  God,but the world , who you belong to.

LISTEN

​You can’t  walk with God ,and hold hands with the devil. No one can serve two masters. Why? Because ,sooner or later you will love one and despised  the other. Jesus  said ,if you love Him keep His commandments , be like Him,follow  Him.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he  is  a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to  be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him”, (2 Corinthians 5:17‭-‬21)

LISTEN:

“But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,”(Romans 8:9‭-‬16).

REMEMBER :
“Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord , And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, But are  like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish”{Psalms 1:1‭-‬6}.

FINALLY:

“Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We  are  hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we  are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then death is working in us, but life in you. And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak, knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you”[2 Corinthians 4:1‭-‬14].

“Now therefore, fear the Lord , serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord ! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord , choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord .”[Joshua  24:14‭-‬15]

ANGER MANAGEMENT  

Anger has caused us to do,and say things that’s destructive to others and ourselves. That’s why God tells us not to get angry.

Spiritual Anger Management starts in Ecclesiastes 7:9 which state’s:

Be not hasty in your spirit to be angry: for anger rests in the bosom of fools. 

Then Ephesians 4:26-27 says,

26 Be all of you angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath (or anger):

27 Neither give place to the devil. 

•Anger out of control gives the devil entrance into your life. 

•Uncontrolled anger causes violence, hurts, breaks in relationships and sad to say even deaths. 

•When you walk in love, joy, and peace you nullify and bring to nothing the vicious beast of anger. 

Spiritual Anger Management Pt. 2

James 1:19-20

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath (or to get anger);For the wrath (or anger) of man works not the righteousness of God. 

•Resist and avoid anger at all cost. 

James 3:18 

…the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. 

Philippians 4:7 

And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ  Jesus. 

•Where there is love, joy and peace anger must cease. Continue in love, joy 

•When you are angry your peace can be interrupted. Release the anger and keep your peace. 

•Peace is the fruit of the Spirit, Galatians 5:22-23. This means your peace is of God. 

Matt 5:9 

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 

•Peacemakers are blessed children of God. 

•Peacemakers are not angry people. Neither do they get angry easily and if they get angry they do not get violently out of control and sin. 

•When anger comes your way remember Your Heavenly Father is your Jehovah Shalom and Jesus is your Prince of Peace. 

REMEMBER:

The Lord passed in front of Moses, calling out, “Yahweh! The Lord ! The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness. I lavish unfailing love to a thousand generations. I forgive iniquity, rebellion, and sin. But I do not excuse the guilty. I lay the sins of the parents upon their children and grandchildren; the entire family is affected— even children in the third and fourth generations.”[Exodus 34:6‭-‬7 NLT]

+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
