CONTINUOUS PRAISES

There is not a person in the world, who does not like to be praised or thanked. So why would you think for a second that the God who made the universe, and everything in it, would not want to hear those appreciative words of thank you Lord. Listen, when you complain, and murmur you better know that the devil is having a party, a big celebration because you are miserable; But when you praise God it makes the devil sick, it destroys his pride, thus rendering him useless and defeated. Unless you are so mis-guided, or mis-lead into believing that you did it all, and God didn’t do anything.

I get to a point where I thank God for the things seen and unseen, because, there are things He does that’s obvious, and there are  things He does that we have no clue that, He intervened and prevented from happening to His children. Where we don’t end up as statistics, in the wrong place at the wrong time. There are so many people in the world, who ended up in the cemetery, morgue, and hospital, that was not and is not covered under the protection and shadow of the almighty (Psalms 91:1). That’s why I have to praise, and thank Him every chance I get, praise in advance, for future blessings, praise Him in the morning, noontime, evening – time, night-time, and every time, I get the time(Psalms 119:164). I have to Thank Him for waking me up everyday, He doesn’t have to, but He does it, because He loves me. I have to thank Him, for introducing me to His son Jesus Christ, so that I have access to Him, His privileges, His promises, His goodness, grace, mercies, and everything that’s good and perfect. The beauty about having a personal relationship with God is; We don’t have to wait or depend on earthly people; like a Priest, Bishop, Preacher, or anyone to go to God on our behalf. I go to Him in prayer, for myself, when I want, and how I want. It is so sad, when you see people depending, or waiting to  call their pastor to pray for them, not realizing they have the same access to Him as they do. All  they need to do is clean their act up, and start living according to His standards, and guidelines, presenting their bodies as a living sacrifice, Holy and acceptable unto Him, which is our reasonable service; we cannot be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, so that we can prove, what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12 :1-2). If you are not living righteous and Holy then you are living for the devil, thus making you an enemy of God, and your prayers will not be answered, regardless of who prayed for you(James 4:2-4).

Praising God my friends is a privilege not an option, He does inhabit the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3), He did it for the Israelites, and we are also His people, Jesus gave us the right, and privilege to be called children of God ( 1 John 3:1; John 1:12). Lets follow Davids example, “His praises shall continually be in my mouth”(Psalms 34:1); just remember when the praises go up, blessings are released, for our benefit (Psalms 33:1). God deserves all glory and praise(Psalms 147:1); why don’t you praise and honor Him today, by accepting Him through His only begotten son Jesus Christ, just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, trust me it will be the best praise He ever gets from you. All praise, glory, honor, and thanks goes to God the Father of our Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ for using me to get His message out to his children, may it bless you as it did me.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ETERNITY

Can you handle the truth about yourself, can you just be honest with yourself, you don’t need no psychiatrist to psychoanalyst your thoughts on this one. But, who do you belong to? Which god are you serving ? Which one do you obey?  It’s no secret, you can tell who belongs to the God of the universe, the omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient one; and who belongs to the god of this world. In life there are choices you have to give up something or someone, to gain something or someone, in this case you have to give the devil up, and choose God, you have to give up the devils lifestyle, and choose Gods.

God knows who belongs to Him, and who don’t. It’s just plain, simple, and straight forward folks, whosoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, and if you don’t love your brother you are not of God, and if you can’t love your neighbor, as yourself then you are not of God(1 John 3:10-24). You don’t need no brain surgeon, geek, or physiologist to tell you this, just look in a book called the Holy Bible, and it will explain it to you. This is the book that the devil, his children, and his followers hate so much, that they refute, change, and fight against everything in it, right down to the paper it’s written on.

The reason they hate the Bible so much is because, it reveals the truth, and exposes evil. But, no matter  how they try to dispute and refute it, it still remains, and reveals Gods will, purpose, prophesies, and plans for His children. You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. God gave us the truth in His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 14:6 ,   John 8:32). Now if you have a problem with that take it up with God, but it’s a no win situation, ask the devil he lost that battle years ago now, he wants you, to go to hell with him.

Friends, only through Jesus Christ you will find true happiness, love, joy, and peace, because He is the way the truth, and everlasting life. God gave us His only son, out of love for us, so He could show us the way, teach us the way, and be the way. Behold what manner of love our Heavenly Father has bestowed upon us that we should be called children of God, that’s good news ( 1 John 3:1).

Gods requirements for eternal life is simple:

1. Accepting His son, Jesus Christ.

2. Believing that Jesus is the way, truth, and life.

Beloved if our hearts condemn us not, then have we confidence towards God, and whatever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight ( 1 John 3:21-22). If you want God and His son in your life go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make in your life. I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message to you, may His love lead you to live for Him, now and forever, in Jesus Name ,amen.

ENCOURAGEMENT

No, it’s not luck, when God blesses us, or do something fantastic in our lives, people like to say that, we were lucky. I was told that on many occasions; but, I had to inform them, that as Christians, we are transformed from our old evil ways, renewed, and equipped with a heavenly treasure, in an earthly vessel that displays the excellency of Gods power, that has nothing to do with us  ( 2 Corinthians 4:7).

Yes, the ungodly call it luck. But, we the Christians call it unlimited grace, mercies, favor, and goodness that we receive daily(Psalms 23:6). Children of God, the things that bother and trouble the ungodly, should never phase, worry, or disturb us. Why? Because we are children of the most High God ( Romans 8:16, 1 John 3:1); We are more than conquerors through Him that love us, and nothing can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:37-39); Our God shall supply all our needs, according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19); Every good and perfect gift comes from God, and He never denies us anything (James 1:17) especially when we are righteous.

So when we are hard-pressed, and troubled on every side – we don’t get distressed, or crushed.

When we are perplexed – we are not in despair, we don’t quit, or give up, but our patience is activated.

When we are persecuted – we know, we are not forsaken, nor abandoned.

When we are cast, knocked, or struck down – we are not destroyed, we get up and go.

When we throw in the towel, God throws it back at us, and let us know that, His grace is sufficient, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness( 2 Corinthians 12:9).

You must realize, that all these things occur, so that we can magnify, manifest, and demonstrate, the legacy of Jesus Christ, all that He did for us, plus the victory, authority, and power he gave us to tread upon serpents, scorpions and all the power of the enemy, where nothing can hurt or harm us ( 2 Corinthians 4:8-10, Luke 10:19).

So beloved, as Christians we must know that things happen, so that Gods grace and mercy is seen, and will cause many people to give God the glory, praise, and thanks He deserves, you must realize that sometimes we are the Bible that unbelievers read. We are on display everyday. So let us continue to walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise children of God redeeming the time in these evil days (Ephesians 5:15). Even in uncomfortable, sometimes unbearable situations, we should put our complete trust, and confidence in the most High God, who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worked in us (Ephesians 3:20).

Listen to me, when you have a strong relationship with God you can move mountains, or He will take you over the mountain, or He will take you through the mountain, it all depends on what will give Him more glory. If you never have an encounter,or don’t know God or His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17), go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and just follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do.

I give God our Heavenly Father, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to bring this message to you, I pray it blessed you as it did me, and you will abide in His will and way in Jesus Name, amen.
