HOPE IN GOD

Ever felt like God is so far away that He doesn’t hear your prayers ? Or ,He is not moving fast enough,well you are not alone,people in the past,present,and in the future,has felt that way,still feel that way,and are going to feel that way,but rest assure ,He is not far away,He hears all your prayers and cries,and He is going to deliver. In Psalms 34: 19 David,said “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all “. However,the secret is don’t stop praying,for example, Psalms 43:1-5 (KJV)Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.  For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?  O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.  Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.  Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God. Here is an example of what you should do while hoping and waiting. Psalms 71:8-14
Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day. Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth. For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together, Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him. O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help. Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt. But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. The secret to hoping,is to never give up on God. Here is an example of someone who never gave up on God.
Romans 4:18-22( KJV)
Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Do you have a relationship with God through His only begotten Son? So let’s get started go to the top of this blog, click unto the salvation page and get started. To God be all the glory.

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.

SIN IS SEPERATION

Most people don’t realize that, all sins, lead to some sort of separation. From cheating on your spouse, to turning your back on God. However, the consequences are somewhat different, they both lead to divorce, but one leads to eternal death. There was a time years ago, we were doomed forever. Because of our multitude of sins, we used to live just like the rest of the world, full of sin, and obeying satan: who is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. We were born with an evil nature, and we were under Gods anger. But God is so rich in mercy, and loves us so much, even while we were doomed because of sin (Ephesians 2:1-4), He found a way to save us, and that’s through His only begotten son Jesus Christ(John 3:16-17, John 6:40,John 14:6). God saved us by His special favor when you believed, and we can’t take credit for anything, it is a gift from God, salvation is not a reward for the good things we did, so no one has any bragging rights. Yes, friends we are Gods masterpiece, who He has created new, through Christ Jesus(Ephesians 2:8-10).

Can you see the devastation, and the destruction we would face, if God didn’t send Jesus Christ. Folks we had no hope, no promise, and no God, and what is sad, is that we didn’t know Him then, and He sent His son to lead, show, tell, and guide us to Him, and people refuse to accept, and believe that God sent Jesus so that we have a way to repent. Imagine, we were separated from God, His hope, and His promises, He sent Jesus, to break down the walls of separation, and become the bridge to bring us closer to our true creator, and people, are refusing Him, seeking someone else, now I understand the meaning of (Hosea 4:6)’my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge’. Why can’t we just, ‘seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and return unto the Lord before its too late…our thoughts and ways are not like His, it’s billions of miles apart'(Isaiah 55:6-9). Jesus  broke down the barriers of separation, so we are no longer strangers, aliens, and foreigners, but citizens, sons, daughters, and joint heirs of the promise of eternal life(John 3:16).

I just can’t figure out how some one could refuse, or neglect so great a salvation (Hebrews 2:3). I pray that God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, may give you the spirit of wisdom, and revelation, so that you may know Him better, and the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that, you may know the hope to which He has called you, and you will see the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power, for us who believe, that power is like the working of His mighty strength. (Ephesians 1:17-19).

If you don’t know Jesus or God His father, go immediately to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, trust me it will be the best thing you ever do.           

    I must give God, my Heavenly Father all the praise, glory, honor, and thanks for using me to get His message out there, I pray it will heal, deliver, and set free who it must, and we all will continue to walk according to His will, and way in Jesus Mighty Name, 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.

UNANSWERED PRAYERS

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” that’s what Hebrews 11:1 tells us. Now who is your faith in? Yourself or God? His will, His ability, and His promises or yours?

Did you know that faith without works is dead (James 2:17).

Doesn’t demonstration beat elaboration, and a man without hope is hopeless. But let me ask you something, when you ask for something, most of the time, don’t you have to wait for it, or you’re one of those, “ It’s now or never people.”

Yes, Numbers 23:19 tells you, ”He does not lie,” and 2 Peter 3:9 tells us, ”He is not slack concerning His promises,” and He did say a few times, ”ask anything in His (Jesus’) name and you will receive it” (Matthew 21:22; John 14:12-14).

So what’s the problem? A few things is the problem:

(1) Did you ask for it in Jesus name? John 16:23-24.

(2) Is it God’s will or yours? James 4:3; Matthew 26:39.

(3) Are you a Christian? If no, how do you expect to get anything from someone you don’t know. Matthew 25:11-12, John 10:14, (sorry that’s God’s word. Read to the end if you want to know Him, it tells you what to do).

(4) Okay, you are a Christian, what type? Hot or Cold? Listen when it comes to God, there is no lukewarm, nor half and half Christians. It’s either you are or you are not. Revelations 3:15-16.

(5) As a Christian, are you walking in righteousness? If not, then you are praying in vain or amiss. How do I know? His word says so, read them all for yourself, Isaiah 59:1-2, 1 Peter 3:12, James 5:16, Psalm 37:25, Matthew 6:33, Psalm 11:7, this is just a few.

(6) You must wait on God. He only works on His schedule or time, not ours (Isaiah 55:8-9).

(7) While waiting, you must not murmur, complain, doubt, be anxious or fearful, and if you have any unrepented sins, known and unknown, ask for forgiveness. Once you ask in faith and not waver, the answer is on the way (James 1:6-8; Hebrews 10:23).

(8) We must cast down all imaginations (past failures, doubts, fears, etc.) that comes against the knowledge or word of God – 2 Corinthians 10:5. Then cast all your cares on God – 1 Peter 5:7. Then go sleep or rest – Hebrews 4:3.

(9) To eliminate all negativity, you must now praise Him, thank Him, read the scriptures, meditate on it, declare it, confess it, hide it in your heart, while confidently waiting, according to 1 John 3:21.

(10) I don’t care who you are, if you are not right with God you are not getting anything you ask for. Do you want to get right with him or know Him, go to the top of this blog, click the salvation page, and follow the instructions.

I thank God, Our Heavenly Father, for the privilege of sharing this message with you. I pray that He will guide you in His will and ways. To God be the honor, praise, and glory, now, and forever in Jesus Name. Amen.
