PRAYING AND BELIEVING

Praying is the easy part, but believing is a whole different thing. Why is believing so difficult, it’s because we allow the enemy to plant seeds of doubt, fear, and unbelief in our minds or we allow him to steal, kill, and destroy God’s word from us, and replace it with lies. However, when we do what God says, and cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalt itself against the knowledge of God as 2 Corinthians 10:5 suggests and apply God’s word, we find that our faith increases because we feed ourselves with scriptures like…
2 Corinthians 1:20 which tells us (For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.)

So we should not doubt when Jesus tells us to ask for anything in His Name and He will do it so that God will be glorified (John 14:13, 14 “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” & 15:16 “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.”) We must also remember that God is not a liar as Numbers 23:19-20 and Hebrews 6:18 shows us. (Numbers 23:19-20 “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said and will He not do? or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Behold, I have received a command to bless; He has blessed and I cannot reverse it.” &  Hebrews 6:18 “…that by two immutable things, in which  it is impossible for God to lie…” 

So whose report or word are we accepting, believing, receiving and standing on? God’s Word or the devils lies. Let’s stand on promises of our Heavenly Father to His children who love, seek and obey Him in the omnipotent Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and do as Philippians 4:6~8 suggests that we turn it over to God in prayer and thanksgiving, accept His peace, then think on things of good report, is that so hard to do?

Unless, you don’t know Jesus, or have a relationship with Him, then take this opportunity, and go to the top of this blog, then click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions. Then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you for the rest of your life.

To God be all the glory, praise, and thanks for this message and as He said, once His word go forth it never returns void, but accomplish what it was sent out to accomplish.

DOUBTERS AND DISPUTERS

No matter how hard the truth is staring people in the face and there is actual concrete evidence to support your story there will still be doubters and disputers. Unfortunately these are the people, doubters and disputers, who cause division and confusion among members. Let me point out a fact for you, most if not all the things in the Bible are spiritually discerned so it is natural that a person, who is not in tune with their faith, will not get it and they can not receive it ( 1 Corinthians 2:14).

In 1 Corinthians 2:9-13 we notice the process in which wisdom, knowledge, understanding, revelation and discernment is transferred from the mind of God, to the mind of  the  believer. Do not forget that through Jesus Christ, Gods only begotten son, we are His adopted children. John 1:12 tell us this; ‘But as many as received Him ( Jesus) ,to them gave he power to become children of God, even to them that believe on His name.

It is those that come with more questions than answers. Those who can never figure anything out and have to rationalize as well as analyze everything. These people are the  doubters and disputants in society. They will not accept the fact that one plus one equals two and not three. They want to know why they weren’t born rich? They want to know why they are not pretty enough? They want to know why Jesus is the messiah, the savior and the only begotten son of God? The reason they ask these questions, my friends, is  because they will not accept the truth and with them not accepting the truth they will not accept Jesus. Realize that Jesus is the only way to get truth as well as life. Plus you will not get to God without going through Jesus. It tells us this in John 14:6.

For to which of the angels did He(God) ever say: ‘you are my son, today I have begotten you’ or ‘I will be to Him(Jesus) a Father and He shall be to me a son’.(Hebrews 1:5). God never intended for us to doubt or dispute His word because He, the creator of all things, does not lie. In Numbers 23: 19 it states:

 God is not man, that he should lie,or a son of man, that he should change his mind.Has he said, and will he not do it?Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

 Hebrews 6:18 confirms this by stating;

so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.

 My friends we must also note that He (God) is not slack concerning His promises, ( 2 Peter 3:9), so the doubt and disputes that we see coming forth are of the devil who wants more company in hell.

Behold, the Lords hand is not so shortened that it cannot save; neither His ears heavy that it cannot hear. But your iniquities(sins) have separated you from your God and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear                (Isaiah 59:1-2).

Let me also remind you that your thoughts and ways are certainly not like His(Isaiah 55:8-9).

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways but in these last days He has spoken to us by His son Jesus whom He has appointed  heir of all things. The son (Jesus) is the radiance of Gods glory and the exact representation of His being sustaining all things by His powerful word. After He had provided purification for our sins He  sat down at the right hand of His Majesty in heaven (Hebrews 1 :1-3).

If you want to doubt and dispute those facts go right ahead because you are heading to a place that is void of all hope. However if you want to know and accept Jesus then you need to go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions. All glory, praise, honor and thanks go to God our savior. Lord thank you for using me to write your  message. May God, our Father, and the Lord, Jesus Christ, give you grace, peace and everything you need to receive and understand His word.Amen.

HOW TO OVERCOME

Everything in the Bible teaches us something, warns us about something, and explains to us how others before us overcame. Every person in the Bible went through something to get to where God intended for them to be. However, they overcame every obstacle through their faith, trust, and hope in the God who made the universe.

Over two thousand years ago people had to depend on the prophets and the sacrifice of animals to atone for their sins, unfortunately no man or animal was suitable to take on the sins of the world. Folks it was never Gods intent for His best creation, made in His image and likeness, to be totally destroyed. Therefore, God had to find a suitable person, to be the ultimate sacrifice and show us how He wants us to live, worship Him, honor him, obey Him, how to kick the devils butt, and give us the victory to guarantee eternal life for His children and that is when and why God sent His only begotten A Son named, Jesus Christ.  He is the messiah, savior, advocate, High priest, substitute, healer, lawyer, doctor, redeemer and a whole lot more.

How can we escape, if we neglect, so great a salvation (Hebrews 2:3); O taste, and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the person who trusts in Him (Psalms 34:8). God’s greatest wish is for us to accept the gift of His Son, believe on or in His Son, so that we can have a relationship with Him, so we can be saved, so we can know His plans and will for our lives.

Jesus also showed us how to live in unity, unselfishly, kindly, compassionately, and lovingly. God never intended for us to be at war with each other and  disobey His commands, that’s the devils plans, schemes, and devises to destroy us because he is doomed.

God’s plans is for us to prosper and not harm us; give us hope and a future; not condemn us, but to save us (Jeremiah 29:11; John 3:16-17). The Bible was written as a personal message from God and contains all of His promises and desires for us. He has never lied or broken any of his promises (Numbers 23:19; Hebrews 6:18; 2 Peter 3:9). He speaks to us through the Bible, if only we would listen. When we read God’s promises everyday it should let us want to serve Him, worship Him, adore Him, love Him and obey Him, because it gives us hope and a glorious future to look forward to.

Do you want to be a part of this? Do you want to be His child?  Do you want to know Him? Well 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 in your entire life. Trust me, I am a modern testimony. I give God the glory, praise, honor and thanks for using me to get His message out there. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you will overflow with His love, peace, joy and hope by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ Christ name, amen.

PATIENCE

Patience is a virtue everyone needs, especially Christians. Instead of attaching A.S.A.P ( As soon as possible) to everything, we should develop our patience, but nobody wants to wait for anything, they want their prayers answered, fame and fortune right away, everyone wants instantaneous success, but no time to wait. What we fail to realize half the time, is that our omnipotent God, sees and knows everything. He knows what we need before we even ask for it. He also knows the exact time and moment we need something.

As Christians, we also should know that God operates on His schedule, His time, His plans, and His will (Isaiah 55:8-9; Jeremiah 29:11). Patience develops, and strengthens your faith, hope, and trust in God (James 1:3-4; 1 Thessalonians 1:3), our God is patient with us, not to mention merciful (Romans 5:5). Did you forget that He told us, His grace is sufficient for us, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness ( 2 Corinthians 12:9).

God never lies, and He is not slack concerning His promises (Numbers 23:19, Hebrews 6:18, 2 Peter 3:9) so what is the problem?  Listen, instead of worrying, and trying to figure out how God is going to do it, you need to glorify Him, thank Him, praise Him, meditate on His promises, remain righteous, till you get answers, breakthrough, deliverance, whatever it is you prayed and asked for.

It’s only when we develop a solid relationship with Him, that we will get A.S.A.P answers to questions, and prayers, that’s when our focus will be on Him, and not our problems or situations, that’s when our faith, hope, trust, and patience takes full control. Job shows us what will happen when we are patient (Job 1:22, James 5:11), he got double for his patience.

They that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, they shall walk, and never faint(Isaiah 40:31). Our God does not do anything in a hurry, or a rush. The point is, our God took six days to create the Heaven and the earth, when He could have done it in one, so you better make a note of that, if you never knew.

And, the most important thing of all, is to make sure He gets the glory, praise, and thanks, because He deserves it, so be sure to tell it in the streets, highways, by-ways over the hills and everywhere.  If you don’t know the God I am referring to, or His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, who is the only way to Him according to John 14:6, then go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, then just follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever did.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to relay His message to you, I pray it was a blessing to you as it was to me, and you will obey His will, and His way in the name of Jesus, amen.
