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.

NEED MONEY

How badly do you want it, and what are you willing to do, or prepared to do, to get it? There is nothing wrong with money, having it is not bad. It’s when you crave for it; will kill for it; steal to get it; do anything for it, that’s when it becomes evil, and then a problem.

The love of money, is the root of all evil, yes, it’s biblical (1 Timothy 6:10). When you allow it to dominate your life, then it diverts your attention from the maker, owner, and the giver of life, who is God.

I must let you know that you can’t serve two masters (Matthew 6:24), you will love one more than the other. The ones who have money in abundance, will do everything to keep it, and get more, the ones who don’t have it, will do anything to get it, yet they both forget who really, and truly owns, and has total control of it.

How sad it is that people would rather gain the whole world, and lose their soul (Luke 9:25). People fail to realize that money fails to solve life’s biggest problems, such as death, cure for diseases, lengthen their life, or the big one, give everlasting life.  A person’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things they possess (Luke 12:15). We need to break free from the evil gravitational lures of money, and seek the kingdom of God as our number one priority, and goal, then everything else will be added to you (Matthew 6:33). The answer is simple, seek God then look for the addition of wealth, health, and eternal life. Are you interested? Do you want it?

Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, trust me you will be set for life. Hey! The streets of heaven is made of gold (Revelation 21:21), what else can I say.

WOW!

How awesome is our God.

I GIVE MY HEAVENLY FATHER THE PRAISE, GLORY, THANKS, AND HONOR, FOR USING ME, TO BRING THIS MESSAGE TO YOU. I PRAY IT BLESSED YOU, AS IT DID ME, AND YOU WILL ALLOW HIM TO LEAD, AND GUIDE YOU TO HIS TRUTHS IN JESUS NAME I PRAY, AMEN.

WATCH YOUR MOUTH

  The tongue has the power of life, and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

It is better to bite your tongue, than to let it bite someone else.

A careless word always starts a strife, a cruel word will wreck someones life, a well spoken word will decrease some pain, while a loving word will heal and bless.

The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but, a deceitful tongue crushes ones spirit.

The tongue of the wise, commands knowledge, but, the mouth of the fool gushes folly.

A wise mans heart guides his mouth, and his lips promote instructions.

A fools lips bring him strife, and his mouth invites a beating.

The tongue is like a fire, that spreads a world of evil.

The tongue is a small part of the body, but makes a great boast.

No one can tame the tongue; it is restless, evil, and full of deadly poison.

A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered.

Even a fool is thought to be wise, if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.

A fools mouth is his undoing, and his lips a snare to his soul.

If you think you are religious, and do not bridle your tongue, you deceive your own self and your religion is useless.

It’s not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but what comes out of the mouth, defiles a man.  All these sayings are scripturally based, and can be found in the book of James 1-3;Matthew 15:11;Proverbs 16, 17, 18, in the Holy Bible.

To God be the glory, praise, thanks, and honor for using me to spread His word, in Jesus name .Amen. If you are interested in seeking God, go to the salvation page at the top of this blog, and follow the instructions. To God be the glory if you do, and may His blessings, favor, grace and mercies be yours now and forever as He leads and guides you, in Jesus name .Amen.

WHOSE LIST ARE YOU ON

I was looking at Forbes list of the richest people in the world, and I did not see my name.Then it dawned on me, I was looking on the wrong list, my name shouldn’t be on that list. It’s on the heaven bound list(Luke 10:20). I don’t know about anyone else, but I would rather live forever, than be rich for thirty years and end up in hell.

When you die your money is no good, where ever you end up, bet you never thought of that, you spend your whole life trying to get it, and can’t take it with you.

The richest man who ever walked this earth was, King Jesus and He said,’it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God’ (Matthew 19:24).

How many of these multi – billionaires you hear of or know of, die ,and take money with them, or fame, popularity, or prestige, lets face facts. When you die, where ever you end up, there is no Forbes list, no popularity list, no nationality list, you get the picture. There will be two lists, one for heaven, and one for hell, which list are you on?

I know, I am on the heaven bound list, because:

1) I admit that I am a sinner in need of repentance.

2)I ask God to forgive me, and He did. 

3) I believe that God, sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to save me, so I accepted Him, and asked Him to come into my heart, and stay there. Since then I’ve become a new creature  and live for Him daily.

Your future can be secure also, just try Him. John 14:6 tells us,’He(Jesus) is the only way, truth, and life, no one goes to God without going through Him. Will you accept Gods gift now, tomorrow might be too late, do you really want to take that chance to continue living without God, do as I did and let Him into your heart.

I GIVE THANKS, PRAISE, GLORY AND HONOR TO GOD FOR USING ME TO SHARE HIS MESSAGE WITH YOU, MAY GOD BLESS, KEEP, AND GUIDE YOU DOWN THE RIGHT PATH IN JESUS NAME I PRAY, AMEN.

THIS IS AWESOME

Is there anyone out there who see the things I see, and get excited like a kid in a candy store, when I see the breath-taking view of the sun peeking over the horizon, with  the different colors illuminating the sky, or the moon with the stars splattered all over the sky.

No! folks this is not a fallacy of mine, not even the meteorologist who gets paid to tell you the weather can describe it, I even wonder if they see it. No artist can ever capture the authenticity of these magnificent masterpieces, and you want to tell me there is no God.

Just do me a favor and get up early before dawn or when its dark, find a park or beach where nothing is blocking your vision and just look up, then just give Him the praise, glory, honor, and thanks for the view.

King David describes it so eloquently for us in Psalms 19, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands, day after day they continually speak, night after night they make Him known. They speak without a sound or a word;their voice is silent in the skies. Their message has gone out to all the earth, and their words to all the world. The sun lives in the heavens where God placed it, (far enough, so it does not burn us up, close enough to warm us ,and give us light to see). How awesome is our God.

The sun burst out like a bridegroom, rejoices like a great athlete ready to run a race, rises at one end and slowly goes to the other end. This my friends is infallible proof that ,there is a God.

 His law is perfect, to convert you. His testimony is sure, making the simple wise. His statutes are right, rejoicing the heart. His commandments are pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, it endures forever. His judgments are true and righteous, and is more desirable than the finest gold.’

Do you know Him? Are you serving Him? if your answer is no. Go to the top of this blog, click on to, the steps to salvation page and follow the instructions, don’t delay tomorrow might be too late. I thank you Heavenly Father for the person or persons who chose to accept you through your son Jesus Christ, I pray that you will strengthen them and guide them in your will and ways, thank you for using me to share your message, to you be the honor, praise, and glory now and forever in Jesus name .Amen.

FERVENT PRAYERS

Father I pray in the matchless name of Jesus Christ your son, asking you to remove the blindfolds and the cement casing off  of the eyes and hearts of  my friends, families and everyone who reads this prayer, who have not seen your light, or experience your love. Father allow the power of your word, which is sharper than a two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12) to cut the blindfolds and the cement cast off their hearts, piercing even to the dividing asunder(pieces)of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and clean up the thoughts and intent of the persons reading this prayer, have your way and your will in their lives Father, allow them to taste the goodness of your grace and mercies, in Jesus name I pray.Amen.

STANDARDS-HIGH OR LOW

Are your standards high or low. Standards is how you rate or grade yourself, how is yours? Is it high or low? Is it based, founded or established on your education, fame or fortune?

High standards, put you in class or category above mediocrity, it puts you among the elites, the best of the best, its privileges and choices are superior and endless.

Now I see why so many people will not accept or follow, serve or worship God, they use the high standards He set as an excuse and would rather settle for less, even die.

 But God sent Jesus, to show us that even though His standards are high, it’s attainable and achievable. (1 John 5:3-4)

Matthew 26-28 tells you about what Jesus went through and did for us to be free from the bondage of sin and Philippians 2:7 mentions what He did.

But for us to enjoy the privileges, we must raise our standards, the highest of which is righteousness. This means to be in right standing with God, the apple of His eyes, this is the foundation that you build on. Matt 6:33 tells us to seek Gods kingdom and His righteousness first and only then will He give you what you want.

I must inform you that you are not getting anything from God if you are not righteous, here are the scriptures to prove it. Romans 3:21-26; 2Cor.5:21; Psalms 11:7; Psalms 37:25; Matt.5:6; 1 John 1:9; Romans 5:17 and the list goes on.

Here are a few of the benefits of righteousness, Gods eyes are on you and He hears you when you pray (1 Peter 3:12) isn’t that good? It gets better James 5:16 tells us ,’the effectual fervent prayers of the righteous person availeth much.’ That’s just a taste of what will happen when you raise your standards to the height or level of Jesus.

To be victorious, a conqueror, a winner you must follow Gods only begotten Son, Jesus. He is the only way to God. You must repent of your sins and follow our leader and Savior – JESUS THE CHRIST. To do so, go to the top of this blog and click on the steps to Salvation page(Steps To Leading Someone to Christ; Salvation Prayer) it will tell you what and how to be saved through Jesus. Please do it now, a second from now could be too late.

I give glory, praise and thanks to God our father through Jesus Christ for using me to share His message with you, may His grace and mercies be yours, now and forever .Amen.

WHAT A BODY

Can you fathom or see the intricate details of our bodies.We are fearfully and wonderfully made.We are made up of 206 bones, 250 million cells is in a drop of blood, 200,000 hair follicles, 60,000 miles of blood vessels, ok, lets move on to simple stuff. Our hearts don’t rest for more than a second, you can sweat up to 3 gallons of perspiration per day, the eye is essentially an opaque ball filled with water like fluid, and can tell the difference between 7 million colors, oh! The brain processes more than 1 million messages per second, and that’s  just a glimpse of the body God created.

And you are wondering if there is a God, and if He exists, I have not read anything, heard or seen anyone coming close to making a specimen of this kind, that is why Psalms 139:14 ‘tells us to praise God because we are fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are His works..’

Then David said in Psalms 8:3 – 6 “when I consider the heavens, the work of His hands, the moon and stars, what is man in comparison to every thing else, why He loves us so.” But we are made in His image and likeness, we are His masterpiece, His pride and joy, that’s why.

And it grieves, hurt and break His heart to see how much He has put out and put up with, just for us to love, honor, respect, serve, worship and thank Him. and we are disappointing Him, day by day.

He went as far as sending His son (Jesus) to save us and we don’t accept Him, nor follow His examples He laid out for us to follow. I hope you know the penalty of not accepting His son, not turning away from your sinful ways is death. Which is Gods gift to us, and the only one who can save us from sin. What or who are you waiting on? please accept His gift before it’s too late. John 3:16 tells you God sent Jesus. John 10:6 tells you He is the only way, He is the truth, and the life, and no one goes to God except through Him. Again i ask what or who are you waiting for? to accept Him go to the top of my blog click on the steps to, and the salvation page to accept Him(Steps To Leading Someone to Christ; Salvation Prayer). To God be the glory, praise, thanks and honor for your decision and for using me. Amen.

INFLUENCE

Who or what is it that influences you?

Is it music, family, friends, your boss, your spouse, or God, or is it a combination or blend of everybody and everything. Who or what drives you up the wall or calms you down?

Influences, sometimes  leads us to make choices, good or bad; right or wrong, which may bring us sadness or joy. Most of these influences in our lives sometimes leads to our demise or delight, no matter what it is still our choice to choose what influences us.

However, I have come to realize, that when you allow God and His word (the Bible) to be your influence and guide, you can’t go wrong. You will not make the wrong choices or decisions. It’s a no brainer. Trust God who knows everything, everybody and the owner of heaven and earth or trust your friends, family and whomever.

Proverbs 3:5&6 tells us to trust or be influenced by the Lord and don’t trust your own understanding, much less friends or family, instead acknowledge God in all your ways and He will direct your path.

(Psalm 119:11,105,133) David was a man after God’s heart, his success was attributed to God leading him, when he failed it was because he thought he could do it without God. In verse 11 he advises us to hide God’s word in our hearts, verse 105 he tells us God’s word is a lamp to his feet and a light to his path, verse 133 he asks God to order his steps in His word, so that no sin will have dominion over him.

Don’t allow people or places to institutionalize you. Replace them with God and His word (the Bible). Look at Job 23:10. God knows the way you need to take; (Jeremiah 29:11) God knows the plans He has for you, no friends or family do. (John 10:6) “JESUS IS THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE” no one goes to God, except through Him.

DO YOU KNOW HIM? NOW WHO WOULD YOU RATHER LEAD OR INFLUENCE YOU? Someone who knows the way, or someone who is looking for the way? It’s your choice. Do you want to know him? If yes, then say this prayer.

Father, I am a sinner in need of your forgiveness. I ask you to forgive me of all my sins in Jesus name. I repent and turn from sinning and doing wrong, right now. I believe that Jesus died and rose again for my sin and I accept His payment. Jesus, I ask you to come into my heart, right now, and be my Lord and Savior. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. I thank You, Lord, for hearing my prayer and coming into my heart and saving me according to Your word. I love You Lord, and I ask You to seal me in the blood of Jesus and help me to live for You all the days of my life.In Jesus name, Amen.

May God bless, keep, help and show you the right way.
