DON’T FORGET GOD

Why accept all His tangible gifts,and reject His only begotten Son? Sometimes we let the abundance of God’s gifts cloud our judgements, and lead us down the wrong path, thus separating us from the giver who is God, It also tarnish the gifts, ruins Jesus Holy Name, and the believers credibility. We as Christians, must learn to escape the corruption of this world,which is publicize by its evil desires,”For God giveth to a man who is good in His sight, wisdom, knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner He giveth travail, to gather and heap up”..( Ecclesiastes 2:26).”Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; But the Lord pondered the hearts (Proverbs 21:2).

Let me explain something to you, when you allow God’s word to fill your memory, rule your heart, and guide your life, sin will not have dominion over you, that’s why David said, “Hide God’s word in your heart, so that you will not sin against Him(God)'(Psalm 119:11),then he said,”God’s word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path(Psalm 119:105),yes , David messed up on many occasions ,but he was man enough to admit it,confess it,and beg for forgiveness,David knew the power and might of the God he serve,he knew without God ,he would perish;that’s why he was always seeking forgiveness(Psalms 51:1-10;Psalms 86).

Repentance ,clears the way for God to work with you,for Him to operate on you;it allows you to submit to God and resist the devil,so that he will flee(James 4:7);Repentance also put you back in right standing with God; a right relationship,that’s why David said,’Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me (Psalms 51:10).Remember Your body is the temple of God,we are joined to God in one spirit,we were bought with a price;therefore we should glorify God in your body and in your spirit,which are God’s( 1 Corinthians 6:15-20).

 I deliberately ,use  King David,as an example because he was a man who followed ,obeyed,praise and worship God with all his heart,he walked in integrity ,and uprightness most of the time from a teenager,who was a shepherd boy to the king of Israel,until he died(1 Kings 9:4),he was not perfect,but God chose his bloodline to introduce Christ Jesus ,because the heart was willing to serve God above everything and everybody. But Jesus was perfect and without sin,He never forget God the Father,that’s why Jesus was always praying,consulting with God on everything.

Do you know the God I am talking about,or His only begotten son,Jesus Christ?if not then go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions,it will be the best thing you ever did.All glory,praise,honor,and thanks go to God for using me to share this message with His people.

BEING STRONG IN GOD

2 Corinthians 10:3-6
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled”. I always admire soldiers, they are strong,and always ready for any type of attack from the enemy, they are trained to be on alert at all times. Now as soldiers in the army of the Lord we are also required to be strong, sober, and vigilant, because our adversary, the devil, is like a roaring lion walking about, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). This is what is puzzling to me, the soldiers of the world,train daily, clean, and sharpen their weapons regularly, so why aren’t the soldiers in the army of the Lord doing the same thing; we too should be praying, fasting, meditating, and studying Gods word to show ourselves approved unto God, a soldier that is not ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth ( 2 Timothy 2:15).

How can you be victorious,and a conqueror if you are not prepared, that’s why so many Christians are defeated today, and is incapable of submitting to God, and resisting the devil, so he can flee( James 4:7); that’s why they have no power to tread upon serpents, and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, where nothing can hurt you ( Luke 10:19).

Lets do the maths , no word + no faith = no power; little word + little faith = little power; plenty word +plenty faith=plenty power;  No prayers = no answers; No God + no Jesus = death. God + Jesus=eternal life. Gods word is not chained or hidden from the christian,so lets exercise our rights as children of the most High God. “But if our gospel be hidden, it is hidden to them that are lost, in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them who believe not”…( 2 Corinthians 4:3-6).

Soldiers don’t run around aimlessly, they know their duties,so why are the Christians running to and fro, carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men ,and cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive (Ephesians 4:14). We as Christians need a reality check, and make sure we are walking circumspectly not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16).

Your duty is to please God only,your aim is to be a disciple of Jesus Christ our Commander in chief, anything or anyone else is insignificant. We are followers of Christ, which makes us fishers of men. A soldier in Gods army don’t get tied up in the affairs of this life, we endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ ( 2 Timothy 2:3-4)

If you don’t know God or His only begotten son, Jesus Christ then you are lost,and you belong to the devil, so change your life, and circumstances, 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. I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get his message out to His people, I pray that you will be strong in the grace, that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory, amen.

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.

PURIFICATION

There are things in life, for some it’s a no brainer, while others have to analyze, dissect, and just make it more complicated than it really is. Now if you surround yourself with the filth, and garbage of this world, there will be no room for purification or cleansing to manifest itself, As the saying goes garbage attracts garbage. Who or what are you attracted to, or is attracted to you? why not purge or purify yourself from the filth of this world.

For purification to be activated, one must first clear a path, because it starts internally, then radiates externally. For God to work on you, in you, and through you; we must give Him access to enter into our hearts, then our mind. The heart is the storage facility for good and evil, out of the heart proceeds evil thoughts (Matthew 15:19, Luke 6:45), the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9), the heart knoweth its own bitterness(Proverbs 14:10). Now you understand why purification has to start with the heart (James 4:8), David tells us to hide Gods word in our hearts, so that we will not sin against God(Psalms 119:11). God knows once He captivates our hearts, He will be the object and focal part of our lives. Therefore, He has to work from within so the manifestation of His love, compassion, and beauty will be seen on the outside of us. Lets start by submitting to God today, so He can clean the junk out of our trunk, bury the skeletons in our closet. Yes I know old habits are hard to die, but that’s just an excuse the devil uses to keep us defeated, but it’s when we submit to God, and resist him(devil), then he(devil) will flee (James 4:7), God also promise never to leave or forsake us (Hebrew 13:5). David tells us that, ‘he has been young and now that he is old, yet he has never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread (Psalms 37:25). In life it is who you are attracted to that gets your undivided attention, time, and effort then it is returned to you in like manner. Well folks, the same principle applies to God, ‘Draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you (James 4:8). If you surround yourself with the filth, and garbage of this world, then God will not be able to get through to you, therefore start cleaning, cleanse yourself, come on free yourself, and shake yourself loose from all the filth, and garbage of this world, give Him your life today. Purify your hearts, clear your minds from double mindedness it only makes you unstable, unproductive, and leads straight to hell. Just submit to God, He will do the rest.

If you don’t know how to, and want to accept Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to get this message out, I pray that you will  purify yourself, so that the beauty of Jesus will be seen in you, and you will allow Him to lead you, and guide you the rest of the way, in Jesus Name, Amen.

FASTING PROVES YOUR LOVE FOR GOD

What is fasting? you may wonder,and what are thr benefits of fasting? Here are some insights. Fasting is sacrificing the delicacies in your life to honor God. Unfortunately most people honor God only when they want something but whatever our reasons may be God is glorified and the devil is horrified. The next question you may be asking is why the devil is horrified. Well this may be the easiest question I have to answer. The devil is horrified because he remembers that when our Lord and Savior walked on the earth, Jesus fasted and he came out more powerful and spiritually inclined.

Children of God, it is of the ut-most importance to fast because when we do we walk in the power and authority like Jesus Christ. We can exercise our God-given authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall, by any means, hurt us (Luke 10 :19). It is sad when a Christian walks around defeated because they don’t know or understand the power that they have.

Fasting tells and shows God, not people, that we love Him, and are willing to sacrifice or give up certain things for a period of time,(which is between you and God). For example certain types of food that you absolutely love, or television, this is a good one – the internet (if it’s not for His use or to honor Him), how about gossiping, or idle chatter, wow! There are so many things we could give up that we adore just to honor God.

Remember this is not something you tell everyone, this is personal between you and God. It is when you broadcast it all over the globe that you become a hypocrite and lose your reward (Matthew 6 :16-18). Fasting allows the true Christian to bring their body or flesh under subjection and eliminate the flesh with its lust and deadly desires. This is how and when James 4:7 take root and is activated, because you submit to God and resist the devil, so he has to flee, like he fled from Jesus(Matthew 4 :1-11).

How many of us as Christians really fast? Do you know and understand the crippling effect it has on the enemy? Daniel fasted, David fasted, and Jesus did too. So as believers why aren’t you? God is not worth it? If His only begotten son fasted, you are certainly no exception, or maybe you don’t love Him (God) enough. Come on children of God it’s time to take God serious, in these latter days, we need to be prayed up and fasting.

Now let me let you in on a secret, when you are on a fast, it is the best time to study the Bible; to be on your knees constantly praying, because you will hear His voice clearly, and know His will, intentions and plans for your life. Don’t forget just like Jeremiah, in Jeremiah 1 :5, He ( God) knew us before we were born. So are you for God or not? Are you interested in knowing God, then accept His gift of His only begotten son (Jesus Christ) John 3:16-17.

Just 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, for using me to get His message out to us. May His grace, mercy, and truth be yours, and may He give you spiritual wisdom, knowledge and discernment when you read His word, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

NO WEAPON

**Isaiah 54:17

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against  thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from me, saith the LORD.

1 John 4:4 

Greater is God who is in me than he that is in the world.

James 4:7

* Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.
