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.

GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT

Did you know that God has given everyone supernatural gifts through the holy spirit? Can you name them? Do you even know how they function and operate? All of Gods children have at least one supernatural gift, the question is do they realize that they have it? Do they know that this gift is for our own good? I know you are eager to know them if you don’t and this is what they are. 

There are nine gifts of the Holy Spirit that are broken down into three categories. The first category is the revelation gifts which are:the word of wisdom,the word of knowledge and the discerning of spirits. All three reveal something supernatural to the believer. The second category are the power gifts which are: the gifts of healing, the working of miracles and also  faith. These three deal with the supernatural. The third and last category are the utterance gifts which are : prophecies, interpretation of tongues and diverse kinds of tongues. All three say something about the supernatural (1 Corinthians 12:7-10). Remember that “The natural man does not receive the things of the spirit of God;for they are foolish unto him. Neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned(1 Corinthians 2:14).

Most people are so busy seeking prosperity that they do not exercise their God-given power and right. It is written “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you;and you shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem,  Judea, Samaria and unto the uttermost  part of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

Here is another scripture that delves into the heart of spiritual gifts, Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions,  over all the power of the enemy,and with this nothing shall, by any means, hurt you’( Luke 10:19). Listen, the devil wants us to live a depleted and defeated life. He is after our power and authority because if you know about it and use it against him, he has no choice but to flee. Saints of God do not allow him to steal, kill and destroy you. Read the word of God and empower yourself. Study the word, meditate on it and exercise your gifts. If for whatever reason you don’t know our sovereign God or his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, then go to the top of this blog. Once there click on to the salvation page then follow the instructions. It will be the best decision you have ever made.

All glory,praises,honor and thanks go to God; our eternal king,the invisible,and the only wise God. Thank you God, for using me to minister to your people.
