JESUS IS OUR ASSURANCE

Why wait till you hit the bottom to seek God? Why not make Jesus,your first option instead of your last? It’s always when people are at an intersection or cross-roads between a rock and a hard place, that they know who Jesus is,and try to seek Him. It’s the only time, they call on Him day and night, that’s the time they get spiritual and start to sing blessed assurance Jesus is mine, and that’s the time you will have to repent from your sins, then accept and believe on Jesus Christ, before God can truly help you.

Assurance is a positive declaration intended to give confidence. It is also a pledge  or guarantee made by someone; but times have changed, and people have changed and the meanings have escape clauses in them. For example; marriage used to be the ultimate assurance that only death will separate a man and a woman who God has joined  together in holy matrimony, but that has changed. Politicians promise to bring changes to the community, and when they get in nothing changes.

People used to have the assurance that when a door is closed, God will open a window, that allows us to climb out, without a scratch, bruise or blemish. What has happened to our confidence in our God who owns the universe, and everything in it? How easily we forget that Philippians 4:19 tells us that, “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” In 1 Peter 5:7, His word tells us to cast all our care on Him, because He cares for us.

How did we ever allow the devil to implant doubt and fear in our minds, when God clearly tells us in 2 Timothy 1:7 that, He (God) never gives us the spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. So now that you realize that fear is a spirit from the devil get rid of it, cast it out, rebuke it, and bind it in the Name of Jesus Christ, and loose power, love, and a sound mind.

I could fill this blog with assurance scriptures, but if you don’t read them, meditate on them, exercise or put them into practice what good is it. It’s like someone gives you a million dollars, and you never spend it, because you either forget that you have it, you just don’t know how to spend it, or what to do with it, so you just sit on it while you are hungry and in need.

Listen, it’s time to accept God’s positive declarations in the Bible,which assure us of His promises. For example: eternal life (1 John 2:25), He will add everything we need if we seek Him first (Matthew 6:33), He will direct our paths, if we acknowledge Him(Proverbs 3 :5-6), He will never leave or forsake me (Hebrew 13:5, James 1:5), nothing or no one can separate me from His love(Romans 8:38-39).Wow! This is exciting, and the Bible is full of assurances.

Thank God for His word that informs us of our assurances through His son Jesus Christ. Do you have this assurance? What are you waiting for ? Do you want it? It’s already paid for by God’s son (Jesus Christ) His ultimate gift to us. So just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, and for further studies and information, go to www.riversofrevival.com.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to write this message. I pray that He will give you everything you need spiritually to read and understand His messages through the Bible, this blog or whatever means necessary. I pray for you to seek Him. In Jesus name, amen.

GODLY WISDOM

God gives us wisdom; out of His mouth cometh knowledge, and understanding, how we apply it to our life, or use it for His good or our own selfish ambitions is our choice.I would rather be a fool for God,than be wise for the devil; These three God-given attributes(wisdom, knowledge, & understanding) can take you places where the devil can’t, and they can  give you peace that surpasses all understanding, supernatural strength that only comes from God;like David killing goliath. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction (Proverbs 1:7). The wise are known for their understanding, prudence, and discernment; knowledge is easy to him, that understandeth, and he that hath knowledge sparest words.

Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it. A wise person sets his goals on heavenly gains, because Godly wisdom is from above, and is pure, peaceable, gentle and easy to be entreated; it’s also full of mercy, good fruits, its without partiality and without hypocrisy (James 3:17). However we speak wisdom among them that are perfect; yet not the wisdom of this age…but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the ages unto our glory ( 1 Corinthians 2:6-7). Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom, and with all thy getting get understanding(Proverbs 4:5-7). Wisdom will  allow you to make good, sound judgment, it will protect and guide you.

People who reject the word of God, reject the wisdom that they would have gotten from the word (Jeremiah 8:9), however they would prefer to pay the  psychologist & behavioral analysis, who do not have God’s word in them, to fill you with the devil’s junk &  medication which makes them worse. The Bible says, as Christians we should be of the same mind one toward another, mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate, be not wise in your own opinion (Romans 12:16). The Holy scriptures is able to make us wise unto salvation (2 Timothy 3:15). We must never forget, that the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men (1 Corinthians 1:25) Godly wisdom tells you God’s thoughts are not like ours, neither are His ways so you don’t do anything without consulting God (Isaiah 55 :8-9). The Bible says, If  anyone lacks wisdom, let him ask God who gives it freely (James 1:5).

I bring all this to your attention to let you know that, when Jesus returns there will be no excuse, and you have made a choice to go to hell, rather than accept God’s gift of His only begotten Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17). But you can change all that. Just 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.

All praise, glory, honor, and thanks to God, our Eternal King, the invisible and only wise God, who uses me as a vessel to get His message out to His people, may His peace, grace, and mercies be yours now and forever. In Jesus Name, amen.

Spirituality

I must confess, I did not get spiritual overnight, but I was always God conscious. Ever since I started going to school to be a minister, the Holy Spirit has opened my eyes to a whole lot of truths and myths, on the spiritual and natural realm or level. I am being educated, edified, anointed, plus a whole lot more to operate in the five fold ministry (teaching, preaching, etc.), and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are interested and believe in God.

However, I realize that my Heavenly Father has revealed more things to me than ever before, because I am walking in righteousness. It’s an honor and privilege to hear from God, directly through His word, fasting and praying, instead of relying on someone to preach to me or you every Sunday. Being in right standing with God, has allowed God to tell me through the Holy Spirit when I am out of line, or doing something wrong. So if someone else tells me something then it’s just a confirmation of what my Heavenly Father has told me and not a surprise.

Trust me folks it’s not easy, ever since I decided to follow Christ, I have been under heavy attack, but I stand on His word, and Jesus my solid rock, light, and salvation, and the enemy has been falling by the thousands, but they can’t come near me (Psalm 91). Once I abide in Him, He will abide in me (John 15:7). He promises, “Never to leave or forsake me” (Hebrew 13:5; James 1:5). When I hide His word in my heart and meditate on it day and night, this allows me the privilege of casting down every imagination that’s contrary to His word (Psalm 119:11 and 133; Colossians 3:16).

Do you want this type of security, confidence, and assurance that comes only through knowing Jesus Christ? Then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to share this testimony with you, I pray that He will guide, and lead you into His will and ways in Jesus Name, amen.
