THE WAR WITHIN

Have you ever been in a fight where the odds are stacked up against you, the person might be bigger, stronger, taller, tougher, and probably will knock the taste out of your mouth. But you decided win or lose you are in it to win, and to the end. Did you know that, we are in a fight every day, with the spirits in us, we have the good and the evil, sweet and bitter, love and hate; the sad thing is the one that wins or dominates, dictates the course for our lives.
Paul sums it up,in Romans 7:14-25 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.

However, as Christians we have the ultimate advantage, and we will be victorious, and triumphant every time if we follow the Gods plan.

Here is His plans:

(1) You must realize the battle or fight is not ours, it’s Gods, (Joshua 23:10;Deuteronomy 3:22; 1 Samuel 17:47; 2 Chronicles 20:15,the list goes on).

(2)Greater is He who is in you, than he that is in the world.(1 John 4:4).

(3)You must remain in righteousness, so that God can fight and deliver you(2 Samuel 22:18-21).

(4)According to Ephesians 6:12,’we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places’. Ecclesiastes 9:11-12 tells us ,’the battle is not for the strong’,plus a few other facts on life. Allow God to fight, and stop depending on your flesh or strength 2 Chronicles 32:8.

Now that you see who you are fighting, do you really think you stand a chance, without God fighting for you. Hey if you do good luck, I am depending on God.

Allow God to teach your hands to war, and your fingers to fight(Psalm 144:1). I use my hands to pick up the Bible, and my fingers to turn the pages of the bible to the scripture, chapter and verse that will replace the enemies thoughts of defeats, failure, lies and propaganda that he uses to distort and taint the mind. Then my faith in God, plus my prayers. I can’t lose.

Don’t try to fight the devil on your own, he will knock the daylight out of you, he will never touch you where two or three of you are gathered in Jesus Name, plus touching and agreeing, why? because Jesus is there in the midst(Matthew 18:20).

Listen to win you need Jesus, He is the only way to God (John 14:6),please try Him, you will not be disappointed, just go to the top of this blog to the salvation page and follow the instructions.

 I thank God for you and pray that He will bless, guide and lead you down the right path, I give Him the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me as a righteous vessel, to bring you his message, in Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

VICTORY IS YOURS

No matter how things look,don’t give up,nor quit,just stand still and watch God turn your circumstances around ,by turning your messes into messages, your tests into a testimonies, your trials into triumphs and turn yourself from being a victim to becoming a victor. How? Well you have to accept a few things and the first being Gods gift of his only begotten son, Jesus Christ. You have to believe that God sent Him to save us (John 3:16) and Jesus is our way to God. Jesus told us the truth about God and granted us eternal life (John 14:6; John 6:40) and because of him we are more than conquerors ( Romans 8:37).

In Matthew 16:19 Jesus said,”I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven and what you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and what you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven”. 1 John 4:4 says that “You, little children, are of God and have overcome them; because greater is He (God) who is in you than he that is in the world.” In Luke 10:19 God says: Behold, I give unto you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. With this power nothing shall, by any means, hurt you.”

Now go unto Him, he who is able to do exceedingly abundant things above all that we ask or think of, according to the power that works in us (Ephesians 3:20). Come on children of God, you need to exercise your power and activate your strength. Philippians 4:13 tells us that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us which means victory is ours! If you feel left out of Gods promises it’s because you know and feel that you are not one of His children. be strong and change that today! Go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the simple instructions. To God be the glory now and forever more. Angels are celebrating your acceptance into the kingdom of heaven as well as your choice to accept Gods gift of His son Jesus Christ.

THE DEVIL’S HIT LIST

Are you on the devil’s V.I.P list,or his hit list. Let’s face the facts,the devil never loved us,and never will,we are on his hit list,so we could be killed. However, the good news is that he is already defeated, because Jesus went down to hell, so that we could be well; they put Him in a hole, so that we could be made whole. He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and with His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). Because of this the Christian is on the devils hit list, the most wanted, the most troubled; Jesus knew exactly what we would be going through, the hardship, persecutions, ridicules, and insults. That’s why Paul said, ‘Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, who comforted us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them who are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God (1 Corinthians 1:3-4). Most people are duped into believing that once you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord, and Savior, it’s smooth sailing from then on, the devil is a liar, because, that’s when the devil personally put you on a hit list just to make you mess up. No problem, because, that’s when true faith in the God you serve is activated, that’s when you have to know all of God’s promises, like: “Greater is He that is in you, than He that is in the world.” (1 John 4:4), or “He will never leave or forsake us.” (Hebrew 13:5), His grace is sufficient for us; for His strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9); We are more than conquerors (Romans 8:37).

Please don’t make the mistake like Job did, thinking he could find comfort in his friends (Job 16:2). There will be occasions where we are burdened beyond measure, above our natural ability, and strength till we are despaired of life. This is why Paul tells us that as Christians, we should comfort each other, with the same comfort, God comforts us with. Paul encourages us to do that because there are believers out there who have never really hit rough waters, or feel abandoned, destitute, and broken, this is the reason why we can’t forsake the assembling of ourselves (Hebrews 10:25) because, this is where the Five fold ministry is activated, to exhort, teach, and edify the body of Christ so that we can be perfect and unified in faith and the knowledge of the Son of God (Ephesians 4:11-12). Now unfortunately, all we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way, and the Lord had laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he opened not His mouth (Isaiah 53:6-7). Jesus paid it all, gave us the victory, the power and authority to tread on serpents, scorpions, and all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19) so let’s stand victorious and triumphantly like the champions He turned us into.

If you don’t know God or His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth then go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the greatest thing you ever did,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead,guide,and direct your path,for the rest of your life. All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God, Our Heavenly Father for using me to deliver His message.

STRENGTH FROM ABOVE

The devil will hit you where the sun don’t shine, and you need to know that he is a tactical expert, very strategic, cunning in spiritual warfare, and he does not fight fair. You ever notice that when something goes wrong, like a sequence of events as if all hell broke loose on your life. Well you need to know that, the devil is like a roaring lion walking about, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8), therefore he knows where, when, and how to hit you, he holds no punches, and he won’t stop until you drop.

But that’s ok, don’t worry and don’t fret because Jesus came to earth, to defeat him. Jesus gave us back the power and authority, He showed us how to use it, and when to use it. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19). We also have Jesus’ great commission, “To go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature, he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. These signs shall follow those who believe: In Jesus name they shall cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them, they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover (Mark 16:15-18).

The devil does not want you to know, that you have all that power, and he doesn’t want you to use it, so he walks around collecting information, and accumulating data on your life, so he can attack you at your most vulnerable moment. But children of God, when you read, and hear God’s Word, then apply it to your life, you become more than a conqueror(Romans 8:37). Greater is God, who is in you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). What then shall we say, If God be for us, who can be against us?(Romans 8:31).

That’s when the devil gets meaner and starts using your family, friends, and finances against you. Most people who are unaware of the devils devises spend money on these so-called experts like, psychologists, behavioral analysis, and medicines, yet failing to realize, that the devil is on a rampage, trying to cripple and weaken us, again failing to realize and know that, when we are weak, that’s when Our Heavenly Father becomes strong (1 Corinthians 4:10). As believers, we also need to know that God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness ( 2 Corinthians 12:9-10).

Lets stand firm, study, and be rooted in God’s word, so that the devils tactics, and devises will be ineffective, and useless against the child of God. There are many accounts, evidence, and stories of people who have overcome and are conquerors, just read Hebrews 11:1-34; and start exercising your God-given authority. The only way to have access to God’s power is through His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, John 3:16-17, Romans 10:9, John 14:6 are the scriptures to confirm this fact, so to get to know Him go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions. It will be the best thing you ever did. To receive protection from the enemy, you have to go to the specialist, His name is Jesus.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God for using me, to share His message. May the God of grace, mercy, and peace guide you to do His will now and forever amen.

OUR BIGGEST ENEMY

Devil, I hear you knocking, but you can’t come in.

I must tell you this folks, the devil does not take vacations, but we all wish he did. Sometimes we all could use a break, but we must be sober, and vigilant, because the devil is like a roaring lion, walking around, looking for people to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

Well, if you’ve never been under attack by the devil then you know whose you are? and who your father is ( John 8:44). But, as Christians we don’t worry about the devil, because, “Greater is He, who is in us, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). You must understand, and realize that our faith is the God, who created this universe, which means we are serving the true, and living God; who sent His only begotten Son to save us (John 3:16, John 6:40, Philippians 1:9-11).

Let me break it down to you my friends. Without Faith, it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). The gift of faith is one of three power gifts, and every believer gets a measure of it (Romans 12:3). Faith my friends, cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).

Folks, you must understand that your prayers, will not be answered if you don’t believe, or know the only God, who answers prayers.  And, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, is the only way to God (John 14:6, John 8:32). As I said before, without  faith it is impossible to please God. Now let me explain, what faith is. ”It is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen …it’s through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God (Hebrew 11:1-3). Stay with me, remember, faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Listen to this, “For the word of God is quick, powerful, and sharper than any two-edged 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. Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:12-16).

As a child of God, it’s a privilege to know that, God never slumbers nor sleeps (Psalm 121:3-4), so faith in God allows us to go to sleep (Psalms 3:5-8).

Would you like to have this same, peace of mind, trust, and confidence in God, then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. You will die in your sins, if you don’t believe in Jesus (John 8:24). It will be the best decision you ever make.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me, to get His message out to His people. I pray that they will submit to His will, and ways, as I have in Jesus Name, amen.

NO WEAPON

**Isaiah 54:17

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against  thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from me, saith the LORD.

1 John 4:4 

Greater is God who is in me than he that is in the world.

James 4:7

* Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.
