BEING STRONG IN GOD

2 Corinthians 10:3-6
“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”. I always admire soldiers, they are strong,and always ready for any type of attack from the enemy, they are trained to be on alert at all times. Now as soldiers in the army of the Lord we are also required to be strong, sober, and vigilant, because our adversary, the devil, is like a roaring lion walking about, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). This is what is puzzling to me, the soldiers of the world,train daily, clean, and sharpen their weapons regularly, so why aren’t the soldiers in the army of the Lord doing the same thing; we too should be praying, fasting, meditating, and studying Gods word to show ourselves approved unto God, a soldier that is not ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth ( 2 Timothy 2:15).

How can you be victorious,and a conqueror if you are not prepared, that’s why so many Christians are defeated today, and is incapable of submitting to God, and resisting the devil, so he can flee( James 4:7); that’s why they have no power to tread upon serpents, and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, where nothing can hurt you ( Luke 10:19).

Lets do the maths , no word + no faith = no power; little word + little faith = little power; plenty word +plenty faith=plenty power;  No prayers = no answers; No God + no Jesus = death. God + Jesus=eternal life. Gods word is not chained or hidden from the christian,so lets exercise our rights as children of the most High God. “But if our gospel be hidden, it is hidden to them that are lost, in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them who believe not”…( 2 Corinthians 4:3-6).

Soldiers don’t run around aimlessly, they know their duties,so why are the Christians running to and fro, carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men ,and cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive (Ephesians 4:14). We as Christians need a reality check, and make sure we are walking circumspectly not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16).

Your duty is to please God only,your aim is to be a disciple of Jesus Christ our Commander in chief, anything or anyone else is insignificant. We are followers of Christ, which makes us fishers of men. A soldier in Gods army don’t get tied up in the affairs of this life, we endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ ( 2 Timothy 2:3-4)

If you don’t know God or His only begotten son, Jesus Christ then you are lost,and you belong to the devil, so change your life, and circumstances, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, 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 you will be strong in the grace, that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory, amen.

THE SIGNS OF LIFE

Wrong way;do not enter;yield,what will be the consequences if we disobey these road signs?death,disfigurement,or paralysis,but sometimes it’s devastating.On the road of life there are highways and by-ways, so when we run out of gas we always stop by a gas station with a convenient store, not only to get gas but snacks.Now on the highway to heaven as Christians we have to stop by our convenient store called church to fill up with the word of God,and pick up a few scriptures to snack on; like yield not your body as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin, but yield it unto God (Romans 6:13).

Just like the convenient store all kinds and types of people go in for different reasons and different things, it’s the same way with church, all kinds of people go there for different reasons and different things. Why is it that when we are driving we obey the road signs to avoid an accident, but we refuse to obey God’s word, in order to avoid sinning, we submit to the road signs, but we can’t submit to God, and resist the devil so that he can flee(James 4:7).

To get our drivers license we have to read, and study the drivers manual to take a written test to get our permit to operate a motor vehicle, then we get a few practice lessons, before we take the road test. So why can’t we be as enthusiastic to read the Bible, and study to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman who is not ashamed, to rightly divide the word of truth( 2 Timothy 2:15). Then, when taking the road test we must obey all the road signs, and apply all the rules of the road that we learned in the drivers manual, in order to pass the test; which rewards us, or qualifies us to own and operate a motor vehicle.

 Now as Christians, to exercise and operate in our God-given gifts, anointing, and power we have to also obey, and follow the rules of the Bible. Wrong way;Wide roads lead to destruction; narrow roads leads to life(Matthew 7:13-14). We should always go down Jesus way, which turns into truth lane, and takes us onto the highway to life (John 14:6), or if you choose differently, you can take sin street straight down to death lane (Romans 6:23)which is the wrong way;read the signs.But you shall receive power,after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you,and you shall be witnesses unto me,both in Jerusalem, in all Judea,and in Samaria,and unto the uttermost part of the earth(Acts 1:8).

It’s reassuring to known that God  created a way for us to get to Him, through His only begotten son Jesus Christ. Do you know Him?

All praise, glory, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to get His word to His people.

WHO CAN’T HEAR WILL FEEL

Are we so consumed, tied down, and bottled down in our mess, that we can’t be blessed? Are we so devastated to the point, where we can’t hear God? I have come to realize that, it’s when the trials, tribulations, and problems hit us to the point of frustration, devastation, and procrastination, that’s normally when the truth hits us. Then we try to analyze where we went wrong, but for Christians the question is – Did we read God’s instructions? Did we follow them?
Or as Matthew 4:19 says,”And the cares of this world,and the deceitfulness of riches,and the lusts of other things enter in,choke the word,and it becomes unfruitful” .
Then here comes, would have, could have, should have; if only we would have read the Bible, we could have avoided this mess, and we should have acknowledge God first. Listen, there is no excuse, God gave us a manual, or G.P.S system called, The Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth, it is then our duty to seek and read the manual, and follow the instructions (Isaiah 34:16; 2 Timothy 2:15). Now the question is, did we read it before we act? Why didn’t we follow the instructions if we read it? Why are you depending on someone to read it, or interpret it for you? It is available in all languages, all sizes, and never runs out of supply; which means we can’t blame God when things go wrong. In the manual, it is written,”In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct thy path.” (Proverbs 3:6); It clearly states, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and whatever we need or desire, we will get it.” (Matthew 6:33). His word, the Bible, has all of God’s promises, rules, regulations, and everything pertaining to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is available to everyone. God does not care about your color, creed, or nationality, He does not care what size you are, or how pretty you are, your money or education is of no significance to God, His word and promises is for everyone, from birth until physical death. Some of us who are made after His image and likeness are so ungrateful and despicable, that we would sacrifice, God’s love, His trust, His mercies, His grace, and goodness for what?  Just for limited gratification that is unsatisfying, and leaves us broke, miserable and disgusted, and sadly enough most of us don’t realize that we jeopardize and compromise our relationship with God, family, and friends for what? Come on, taste and see that the Lord is good and gracious (Psalm 34:8; 1 Peter 2:3). Blessed are you if you hunger and thirst after righteousness (Matthew 5:6; Luke 6:21). For God so loved us, He gave us His only begotten Son (John 3:16-17).

Read it then tell me? How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation, which at the first was spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him, God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with diverse miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to his own will (Hebrews 2:3-4). Listen, the only way to God is through His Son Jesus Christ (John 14:6).

Are you interested? Do you want to know God and His Son Jesus, who died for your sins? Then go quickly to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do. Then allow the Holy Spirit to lead,guide,and direct you for the rest of your life.The devil is mad but God is glad; The angels in Heaven are rejoicing and so am I. All glory, praise, honor and thanks be to the God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for using me to deliver His message to His children.

Counterfiet, Artificial, Fake

You have counterfeit bills, artificial flavor for food, fake Gucci bags,and phony people,etc. Now if you study the original you can tell the fake, counterfeit and artificial immediatly.It is the same with christians,a true-born again christian,should be able to recognised a fake immediately.

The Bible distinctly tells us to,’ Study to show ourselves approved unto God,a workman that needed not to be ashamed,rightly dividing the word of truth'(2 Timothy 2:15).

So why were so many people fooled or misled by this mans prediction,this just tells you how many people read the Bible,well let me give you the truth,it is written,’No man knows….not even the angels in heaven,when that day will come’,go read it for yourself ( Matthew 24:36;Matthew 25:13;Mark 13:32;Luke 21:34),these chapters, distinctly tells us no one knows…not even the angels,only God. Another reminder God does not lie,like men do,and He is not slack concerning His promises( Numbers 23:19;2 Peter 3:9).         This just proves that there are many fake, counterfeit, and artificial people,who claim to be christians out there,who aren’t genuine; who think that God is going to accept them ,because of one second act of repentance,then the next day you are back to the old you,scheming and creeping. Let me remind you that God knows your heart and thoughts. Just like the leopard who can’t change its spots so is the double-minded person who is unstable  in all their ways.Just a reminder, you can fool people,but you can’t fool God, you will get away with tricking me, your bishop, or pastor, but God is in a different league than us.Remember,Gods thoughts,and ways are not like ours,they are as far as the Heavens is from the Earth ( Isaiah 55 :8-9).Please people,know the truth,and the truth will make you free ( John 8:32);God sent Jesus to show us the way,tell us the truth,and give us everlasting life(John 3:16;John 14:6).Once you accept Jesus Christ sincerely,you receive the Holy spirits anointing,we are then  sealed,as one of Gods children,we are then led and guided by the spirit into all truth (John 16:13).Therefore,no counterfeit,artificial,or fake prophet should be able to deceive us.  The Bible says, ‘Let no man deceive you’  (1 John 3:7);Be not deceived God is not mocked,for whatever a man sows,he will reap ( Galatians 6:7).Lets not get weary in serving the Lord,He will come back and redeem us in His time.

If you don’t know the true,and living God ,nor His only begotten son Jesus Christ,who died for us,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,then follow the instructions,it will be the best decision you ever make. Remember ,the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing;please don’t be one of them,but unto us who are saved, it is the power of God (1 Corinthians 1:18). All glory,praise,honor,and thanks go to the God ,and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,who use me as His vessel to distribute this message,I pray it was a blessing to you,as it was to me.

PREPARATION

Preparation beats elaboration any day. Lawyers always prepare for a case, before they go to court, if they plan to win. Doctors prepare for surgery, before they start operating on the patient. The soldier has to practice before he goes off to war. All occupations require the individual to study and practice as often as possible, in order to be successful at their professions. Everything we do in life we have to be prepared for, the question is, how well are we prepared? How do we prepare? and what are we preparing for?

 As children of God we must be prepared to receive God’s gifts, prepare to submit to God and resist the devil, prepare for Jesus’ return, prepare to fight the good fight of faith, and lay hold on eternal life (1 Timothy 6:12). Preparation is not an overnight thing, and it cannot be done in a day. Preparation starts with  our hearts and minds so we can receive the things of the spirit of God (1 Samuel 7:3; Proverbs 16:1).

However, as Christians we must study to show ourselves approved unto God a workman that needed not to be ashamed rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). As soldiers in the army of the Lord, Ephesians 6:15 (AMP) tells us to shod our feet in preparation to face the enemy with the surefooted stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news of the gospel of peace. We must be ready to spread the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ over the whole world(Mark 16:15-16). How beautiful upon the mountain are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace, who brings good news, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion your God reigns (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15).

 We must let the word of Christ dwell in us richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms,  hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord (Colossians 3:15).Lets get it together saints, 1 Peter 3:15 tells us, “to be ready to give an answer to everyone that asked us for a reason of the hope that is in us“. We are in the last days, Jesus went to prepare a place for us ( John 14:2), are we preparing for Jesus’ return? Are we walking circumspectly, not as fools but as wise people, redeeming the time, because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16). If you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. All praises, glory, honor, and thanks go to God for enabling me to minister, His message to His people.

INSIGHT IN LIFE

If you look at the world, you will be distressed; If you look within, you will be depressed. But if you look to Christ you will be at rest, most people do not understand God’s truth because they are not ready to change, refuse to change, or don’t care about change. God’s word is the truth and it will take you places where no one or no other book can take you.

Are you as a believer ready to take your spirituality to a higher level, to study to show yourself approved, a workman that is not ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth ( 2 Timothy 2:15), God is looking for the best, are you the best? So give Him your best in everything you do or say; do it all to the glory of God ( 1 Corinthians 10:31) Do you want to glorify God? Then accept Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions; If you are a Christian, then you should be presenting your bodies as a living sacrifice Holy and acceptable unto God which is your reasonable service(Romans 12:1), we are in the latter days we better be ready.

GODS DISPLEASURE

How reassuring it is to read the Bible, and it tells you that God sees, our efforts to obey His commands; Doing the things that are pleasing to Him, the labor we put in, with patience and endurance, God is pleased. He is also pleased, when as Christians we don’t tolerate or find excuses for evil people, because we should not have fellowship with the unfruitful work of darkness but rather reprove them (Ephesians 5:11). What fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? (2 Corinthians 6:14).

 God loves when we study the Bible to show ourselves approved, to rightly divide His word of truth, not ours, and not be ashamed to tell it like it is(2 Timothy 2:15). Studying, enables us to examine the claims of those who say, they are apostles but are not, then you will discover that they are liars, God also makes a note of it when we patiently suffer for Him without quitting (Revelation 2:2-3).

God’s word tells us in the Bible, “Let no man deceive you with vain words; for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience; be not ye partakers of them” (Ephesians 5:6-7). When you are a child of God, especially for a while, you know Our Heavenly Father sees, and knows everything, I just love when He praises, and compliments us before He tells us our faults, and issues that displeases Him. 

What displeases God the most, is to see His children’s love for Him diminish, we don’t love Him like we used to, like when we first received Him. Do you only love Him, because you want something? or is it for show? or the right thing? maybe it’s to impress someone? Now ,if we as humans can tell when someone does not love us, don’t you think Our Heavenly Father, who sees and knows the contents of our hearts, and thoughts will know that the fire, desire, and love behind your praise, thanks, and worship to, and for Him is not authentic(Psalm 44:21; Revelation 2:23). Let’s be real, because He is real, God wants us to go back to how it was when we first received Him, otherwise He has to do something about it(Revelation 2:4-5).

Just do as God asks and requires of us, and we will have the privilege of eating from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God (Revelation 2:7; Revelation 22:2). God’s word my friends never returns void(Isaiah 55:11); God does not lie, nor is he slack with His promises (Numbers 23:19, 2 Peter 3:9). How shall we escape if we neglect God(Hebrews 2:3). Come on taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the person who trust in Him (Psalm 34:8; Psalm 119:103; 1 Peter 2:3).

We are living in perilous times, and the only person that can help us is God, through His son Jesus Christ. Don’t you want to know Him, you should want to know Him, 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. To God be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver His message to His people.
