GOD LOVES YOU

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved”.(John 3:16‭-‬17 KJV).

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us. If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also”.(1 John 4:18‭-‬21 KJV).

Scripture tells us that God is love. He is perfect, and love is perfect. There is nothing you can do to make God love you more, and here is nothing you can do to make Him love you less. His love toward you is steadfast; it’s unchanging. His arms are always stretched out toward you, and He is always ready for you to come to Him.
Oftentimes, when people make a mistake or feel that they have disappointed God, they think He might be mad at them, but the Scripture tells us just the opposite. God’s not mad at you; He’s madly in love with you! It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or where you’ve come from, God’s arms are open to you. He’s longing to show you His goodness and grace. It’s His kindness that leads us to repent and change our ways.
Today, if there is anything in your life that is keeping you from receiving His amazing love, set those things aside. Let His love restore you and make you new. Come to Him with an open heart and receive His amazing love and enjoy the blessings He has in store for you!

JESUS SAID:

“If ye love me, keep my commandments”.(John 14:15 KJV).
Let’s pray:
“Almighty Father God in the name of Jesus through the Holy Spirit, Hallowed be your name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as is in Heaven, thank You for loving me perfectly. I want to know You more, and I want to know Your love. I receive it by faith today and ask that You show me Your ways and fill me with Your peace as I keep my heart and mind stayed on You in Jesus’ name I do pray and declare it all. Blessed are we and blessed we will always be and to our Lord Jesus Christ be all the Glory. Amen”
Praise the Lord as we pray for one another, written by my brother in Christ Ricky.

FREEDOM IN CHRIST

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’ ?” Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.  And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.  Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed”. (John 8:31‭-‬36 NKJV).

“Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is , there is  liberty”. ( 2 Corinthians 3:17 NKJV).

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need”.{ Hebrews 4:16}

+Freedom In Christ+
Galatians 5:1 NKJV
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
+In Christ Jesus we are totally free in spirit, soul, mind and body, past, present and future.
+In Christ Jesus we are free from the world and the devil. There is absolutely nothing in this world that should keep us down.
+You may have gotten knock down with sickness, disease, financial hardship or bad relationships but you don’t have to stay down.
+I command you in The Name of Jesus! Get up! and stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free. For who the the Son set free is free indeed.
+For it is God who supplies all of our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Hallelujahs to Jesus!!!
•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!

IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS…..

Have you given all your problems to the Lord?
1 Peter 5:7 (AMP)
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him (The Lord Jesus Christ), for He (The Lord Jesus Christ) cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
Matthew 12:28-30 Jesus said:
28 Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and all of you shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
+In spite of all that we maybe going through the Lord is still our Healer, Deliverer, Redeemer, Protector, Provider, and Burden Bearer.
+In Him we have Total Victory because He is our Victory. Hallelujah!
•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.

NO FEAR

FEAR NOT
Psalm 34:4
I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
2Tim 1:7
For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
1John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.
1. In Christ Jesus we are completely delivered and set free from all fears. The Perfect Love which is the Love of God casts out all fear.
2. NOT living in the Love of God makes us accessible to all kinds of fears.
3. Fear has torment.
4. Most FEARS are demonic spirits attacking God’s People.
5. When we completely delivered from the spirit of fear:
A. We will be Bold and Strong in the Lord.
B. We will freely demonstrate love to others and function in the sound mind of Christ.
+May you be free from all fears in The Almighty Name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
•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!

YOU HAVE TO DENY SELF

“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. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. (Philippians 2:5‭-‬11 NKJV).
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.{Matthew 16:24‭-‬25 }.

“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.  And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.  He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it”. (Matthew 10:37‭-‬39 NKJV).

“When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.  For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.  For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?  Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?  For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”(Mark 8:34‭-‬38 NKJV).

““If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.  And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.  For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it —  lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him,  saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?  Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?  Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace.  So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple”. (Luke 14:26‭-‬33 NKJV).

 Once  you have denied yourself , you have truly  let go and let God.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which  is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of  himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let  us  use  them: if prophecy, let  us  prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let  us  use  it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion. Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men”. (Romans 12:1‭-‬18 NKJV).

Therefore, as 1 Peter 3:15 tells us to,
…be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the HOPE…
+When anyone questions the credibility of your Christian Doctrine feel free to BOLDLY PROCLAIM that:
+Church is your University.
+Heaven is your Major.
+Earth is your Minor.
+My Heavenly Father owns the University.
+Jesus is my Master, Lord, Savior, my God and my Professor.
+The Holy Spirit is my Dean and my Guidance Counselor.
+Angels are my classmates.
+The Bible is my only Textbook and it covers all subject.
+Winning souls is my God given assignment.
+Satan is a permanently expelled student and my defeated enemy and he is destined to the Lake of Fire Forever.
+The Lord saying to me “Well done My Good and Faithful Servant”, and I having Eternal Life and receiving Crowns and Rewards are my Accolades.
+Thanksgiving, Praise and Worship is my celebration to the Lord for all He has done in my life and with my life. Hallelujah!
•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!

YOU GOT THE POWER

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind”. ( 2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV).

Listen , if God didn’t give you the spirit of fear; who gave it to you? why did you accept it? So now that you know that it’s not good for you. Give it back,and accept God’s gift of power,love ,and a sound mind.

How can you get the power? From the word of God called the Bible. But you have to read, and believe it.

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.
(Hebrews 4:12 KJV).

“Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”(Luke 10:17‭-‬20 NKJV).

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”(Acts 1:8 NKJV).

REMEMBER:

YOU ARE NEVER WITHOUT THE STRENGTH OF THE LORD
Psalm 27:1
…the LORD is the STRENGTH of your life…
+How Strong is our Lord? Our Lord is Omnipotently Strong.
Omnipotent: the unlimited, inexhaustible and supernatural miracle working, power of God.
+God is in us by His Holy Spirit, and it is through His Holy Spirit that we are connected and we experience His Omnipotent Power.
+Psalm 27:1
…the Lord is the STRENGTH of our lives.
Ephesians 6:10
…be STRONG in the Lord, and in the POWER of His MIGHT.
+And know Philippians 4:13 that we can do all things through Christ who STRENGTHENS us.
+We are never without the strength of the Lord.
+With God’s STRENGTH we are God STEONG.
Hallelujah! Amen!
•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!

LISTEN

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”(John 3:16‭-‬21 NKJV).

THAT’S THE GOODS NEWS,Now here’s the bad news:

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s”. (I Corinthians 6:9‭-‬11‭, ‬15‭, ‬17‭-‬20 NKJV).

“And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation”. (Hebrews 9:27‭-‬28 NKJV).

“The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever”. ( Revelation 20:10 NKJV).
