WRONG CHOICES

Have you ever make decisions in your life that you later regret, you just wish you could see the future, or read someones mind, even just a glimpse of the intents, contents, and desires of their hearts. But, would it have really made a difference, because sometimes,if not all the times we see the writing on the wall, or signs that this will not work, yet we ignore it, and do our own thing. Most of us spend all our lives trying to fix broken things, yet failing to realize that if God is not the glue that will hold it together, then you are wasting your time. However,if we just do as God suggest in Proverbs 3:5-8
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones”. Because He knows the hearts of people as Jeremiah 17:9-10 says,
“The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the Lord , search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.

It’s amazing, how many times the devil leads us to think that our looks, money, or body will change a person, failing again to see that if God is not the catalyst for change, you might as well give up, because every opportunity the devil gets, he is going to shred it like paper.

The beauty about a child of God in situations like these,is that God promise never to leave or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5), and a whole lot more,but child of God; Listen, if you don’t know Gods promises how are you going to overcome the struggles,fights,trials,and tribulation that the enemy is throwing at you. How can you go to war without weapons,you can’t go in a boxing ring to fight without arms, so, how do you expect to defeat the devil without the word of God planted in you,without the Holy Spirit residing in you,without even accepting Gods gift of His son Jesus Christ,without living Holy and righteous,without presenting your body as a living sacrifice,holy and acceptable unto God,which is your reasonable service;and be not conformed to this world,but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,that you may prove what is that good,acceptable,and perfect will of God ( Romans 12:1-2). Now you tell me,how do you expect God to clean up your mess,your problem,your trials, if you are not serving Him? Does that, even make sence to you?Let me tell you something if you are not living right,having sex out of marriage,lying,stealing,cheating,etc.etc.you might as well stop praying;because it is written:”The effectual,fervent prayers of the righteous availed much” ( James 5:16).”For the eyes of the Lord, are over the righteous,and His ears are open unto their prayers”      ( 1 Peter 3:12).Well I am not going to belabor the point you got the message,God takes care of those who seek,love,and live for Him in all aspect of their lives. If for whatever reason you don’t know God or His only begotten son,Jesus Christ,go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,then follow the instructions,it will be the best choice you ever make,drop me a note if you need help,connecting with the right people or getting help knowing Christ Jesus. I sincerely give God the glory,praise,honor,and thanks for using me to get His message to His children,I pray it bless you as it did me,and you will obey His will and ways or commands.

UNDER ATTACK

“Many are the afflictions of the righteous;but the Lord delivers him out of them all” [ Psalms 34:19]. The church is under attack, people are under attack, marriages are under attack, children are under attack, the devil is on a rampage, he realizes we are in the latter days so he has increased demonic attacks. Therefore we as children of the most high God have to elevate our level of prayer, praise, fasting, and meditation on the word of God. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,but mighty through God,to pull down strongholds and bring them under obedience to Christ {2Corinthians 10:4&5}.

 Ephesians 6:12-13 clearly identifies the enemy as demonic spirits, it states:

For we wrestle not against fresh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places; Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day.”

We can see the uprising of demonic forces in high places, with the passing of the gay rights bill, legalizing same-sex marriages, the killings of children. The list goes on.  The acceptance of these behaviours in society shows the massive increase of men pleaser more than God pleaser. We are in a fierce battle even though the enemy looks like they are winning, it’s just a smoke screen to keep those who are lost blinded by the truth and the fact that, the devil is already defeated, because of Jesus Christ our Messiah.

All the things that are taking place in the world today are signs of  demonic influences and perversion of Gods intended purpose. If God had intended for us to live in sin He never would have sent Jesus, His only begotten son to redeem us. Beloved children of God now is the time for us to walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16).

Our most effective weapons when we are under attack is: prayer, 1 Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to pray without ceasing; But remember only the effectual prayers of the righteous availed much (James 5:16). So are you righteous ? Know your strength, Luke 10:19 tells us that Jesus has given us the power to tread upon serpents, scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Next we must praise Him continually, Psalm 34 :1 tells us that His praise must be continually in our mouths. Hebrews 13:15 tells us to give Him a sacrifice of praise. Then we must offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving (Amos 4:5). We must give thanks always for all things (Ephesians 5:20). To be victorious we must cast down any and every imaginations that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ ( 2 Corinthians 10:5).

As Christians to conqueror the enemy repeatedly, we need to give ourselves to fasting and prayer, repent often, and meditate on Gods word day and night, once we eliminate some thing we love to eat or do as a sacrifice to God it drives the enemy crazy. Then put on the whole armour of God (Ephesians 6:14-18) which are: the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, shoes of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, the sword of the spirit, and praying in the spirit.

If you don’t know God or His only begotten son Jesus Christ, you are invited to know Him. Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions. All praise, glory, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to deliver His message.

HOW SOON THEY FORGET

New York was spared the massive destruction of hurricane Irene because God found some righteous saints whose effectual fervent prayers availed much (James 5:16). What is absolutely amazing is how soon people forget the devastation that could have happened if hurricane Irene had treated New York like how hurricane Katrina treated New Orleans and the other states.

Instead of people singing how “great is thy faithfulness Lord unto us”, they are busy complaining about what was closed, how they missed work for nothing, and what was cancelled, instead of just praising and thanking God for His grace and mercies which brought us through. How quickly they forget the effects of past hurricanes of that magnitude.

These are the same people who went to the supermarkets and every store they could find that sold flashlights, candles, battery’s, and water in abundance, that the regular shopper or customers were not able to get. These same people were worried, scared, and running for higher ground. Some even prayed and acknowledged that there is a God when they didn’t do so before the storm. Now that it is gone, they are back to their old sinful, hurtful, and dirty ways.

These are the folks that 2 Timothy 3:5 tells us that they, “having a form of Godliness, but denying the power there of; from such turn away”. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if New york and the other states don’t get their act together, the next time will not be so easy. When gay rights movements have more rights than the Church of the living God something is wrong. When gay marriages is top priority for law makers, then the reenactment of Sodom and Gomorrah is on its way (Genesis 19). How soon we seem to forget that story.

I am not bragging but I slept like a baby through the whole hurricane, because I know whom I believe in (2 Timothy 1:12); and He kept me in perfect peace, because my mind was on Him (Isaiah 26:3, Philippians 4:7). I was not fearful, because He did not give me a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). If  God never slumbers and sleep (Psalm 121:3) what am I staying awake for?

Would you like to experience this kind of confidence in the God of the universe? Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.

All praises, glory, honor, and thanks go to the King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, the only wise God for using me to share His message with His people. May you receive spiritual insight as you seek Him. May His grace and mercies be yours now and forever in Jesus’ name, amen.

QUICK ANSWERS

Did you know that God also uses caller I.D.? If you are a person, who always murmurs and complains, do you really think God wants to listen to you all day; Some people  are just never happy or satisfied, it seems like they always have problems, always fussing about something, or someone. The Bible says, bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of christ(Galatians 6:2), yes the Bible did say so, but it does not mean murmuring, complaining, fussing, and fighting. I must tell you the truth, that’s a tactic of the devil to keep you in the wilderness for forty years, or till you die; murmuring, complaining, and fussing is of the devil, and that’s sinning against God, and Jesus did not intend for us to bear other people’s sin, sorry you are on your own. Don’t you just love it when people quote scriptures out of context, so you can correct them. Stop listening to the devil, if you want quick answers to your prayers, it requires some adjustment to your attitude and lifestyle, which are : righteousness, effectual and fervent prayers, then back those up with thanksgiving, praise, and worship to God. Let me break it down to you, the Bible says the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much ( James 5:16). Righteousness my friends is to be in right standing with God, a relationship with him, a righteous person does not allow sin to dwell in them, their motto is : “If  we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness”(1 John 1:9). A righteous person knows that the eyes of the Lord is on him, and God’s ears are open to his prayers (1 Peter 3:12), King David furthered by stating,”I have been young and now old; yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread “( Psalms 37:25). Then Jesus tells us,”To seek God first and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you”(Matthew 6:33). Now lets put them all together to work for our good: Effectual means effective, fervent means a strong feeling, righteous means you are favorably right with God, availed means it’s already a done deal, then to put the icing on your prayers, just start singing, dancing, praising, and thanking God. Just in case you didn’t know, the Lord inhabits the praise of His people (Psalms 22:3). King David, praised God seven times a day, because of His righteous judgements(Psalm 119:164), that’s why David’s prayers were answered, he even dance himself out of his clothes praising God, that’s how you get quick answers folks.

To know God, you must know His only begotten son Jesus Christ, He is the only way to God, here are a few scriptures to back it up (John 3:16-17, Romans 10:9, John 14:6, Romans 3:21-24). This is a faithful, and true statement worthy of all acceptation, that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners (1 Timothy 1:15). Don’t allow the devil to confuse, or trick you any longer, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, 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 do regarding your future. All praises, glory, honor, and thanks go to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for using me to get His message out to His children.

DIRECT ACCESS THROUGH PRAYERS

Have you ever considered how many prayers go up to God per second? How many get answered, and how many don’t. Have you realized that half the people who pray for you need prayers for themselves, and the other half  don’t even pray, or remember you. That’s why it’s very important that you pray for yourself, at least you are positive, and one hundred percent sure, that your request, petitions, and questions are made known to God.

Praying is the only way, we as children of God can communicate with Our Heavenly Father. Before Jesus came, the people had to go through the prophets of God, to seek forgiveness of their sins (1 Samuel 12:19-25), and he was obligated to intercede on behalf of the people, because, if he did not, he would have to answer to God, it was also a sin, because he was appointed by God to pray for, and give Godly advise to Gods children (1 Samuel 12:23), I wonder how many bishops, pastors, evangelist, etc. realize that if  someone requests, seeks or asks for their prayers, and they don’t, it’s a sin. Why ? Because, that is part of the job requirement. However, I love to pray for myself, and others, because, the effectual fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16).

Now if you are righteous you have no problem, but my question to you is, how do you know for a fact that your bishop, pastor, or  whomever, is righteous? Which means you are gambling with your life, and taking a big risk. But if you are in a solid relationship with God, it renders you righteous,thus making your effectual fervent prayers availed mightily; doesn’t that make a whole lot of sense, why take a chance, yes it’s good when they pray, but it’s better when you do. The Bible says, ‘we ought always to pray’ (Luke 18:1); ‘pray without ceasing’ ( 1 Thessalonians  5:17). Jesus gave us direct access to God. He said, through His Name, ask whatever, and it’s done(John 14:13,John 16:23-26) now you tell me, why should I depend on someone, when I can do it for myself, as long as I am faithful, righteous, and Holy. Jesus shows us how to do it: Wake up early, find a secluded, and quiet place, away from the noise, and clutter of the world, so that you can hear from God.  Listen, before the day gets hectic, and chaotic you must find out from the master, what His plans are? What His will, and wishes are? In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path (Proverbs 3:6). Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and everything else will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33), show me in those scriptures, where it says to seek your bishop, pastor, or anyone else. You better learn how to pray for yourself, I think the bishop, or pastor would be upset if everyone tried to wake him up early to pray for them, especially if, he himself is up praying for himself.  Prayer gets your mind, soul, and body focused on your divine assignment from God, it prepares you for the battle of the day, it prepares you not to fight, but to stand with your armor (Ephesians 6:13-18) so that when God moves you move, that’s abiding under the shadow of the almighty (Psalms 91:1).

If you don’t know God or His only begotten son Jesus Christ (John 3:16, John 14:6),then you are not privileged to this access, do you want to? Then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the simple instructions, trust me it will be the best thing you ever did in your entire life. I must give glory, praise, honor, and thanks to God for using me, to get His message out the people, I pray it blessed you as it did me, and you will obey His will and wishes for your life in Jesus Name, amen.

KNOWING GODS WILL

To know Gods will, you must first know Him; to know Him, you must know His word, and follow the word, which is His only begotten son Jesus Christ, who came to introduce us to the true, and living God (John 1:1-14). ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son’ (John 3:16-17), so now we know, that it’s not Gods will for anyone to perish, but for all of us to have eternal life.

To truly know Gods will, there are certain criteria, we must follow: we must accept the gift of His son Jesus Christ(John 14:6), we need to confess our sins, and ask for forgiveness(repentance)(1 John 1:9,Proverbs 28:13), we must seek Him, and His righteousness first (Matthew 6:33).

To be righteous, you must be in right standing with God (Romans 8:10,2 Corinthians 5:21). To be in right standing with God, you must deny yourself, obey His commands and will. You see folks to know God’s will you must know Him, and the power of His might (Psalm 46:8-10). In all your ways, you must acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path(Proverbs 3:6), we know His will when we study His word, ‘study to show yourself approved unto God’ (2 timothy 2:15), we know His will through prayers, ‘confess our faults, and pray for each other, that we may be healed, the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous person availeth much'(James 5:16). ‘For I know the plans I have for you’, says the Lord,’plans to prosper you, and not to hurt you, plans to give you hope, and a future.Then you will call upon me,and go pray to me, and I will listen to you, you will seek me, and find me, when you search for me with all your heart, I will be found by you’, says the Lord,’and will bring you back from captivity’..(Jeremiah 29:11-14).

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open, unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil (1 Peter 3:12). Friends you must trust in the Lord with all your hearts ,and never, ever rely on your own understanding, or your friends (Proverbs 3:5-6). This is the only way you will prove, what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). Friends if you seek Him, pray, fast, repent daily, stay in righteousness, meditate on His word, cast down every knowledge, and thought that is not of God, or in His word (the Holy Bible), you will know Gods will, and His plans for you.

If for whatever reason, you don’t know God, His gift of His only begotten son Jesus the Christ, then go to the top of this blog, click onto the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do, in your entire life. I give God, the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release His message, to the saved, and unsaved, I pray they will be obedient to His will, and ways in Jesus Name, amen.

PRAYERS THAT ARE HEARD

Father in heaven, I come before you today, in the mighty Name of your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, standing in the gap, and interceding on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ, and their families, my family, my friends, associates, and all my internet families, Facebook, twitter, bloggers,etc…, both near and far, all over the globe. I’m seeking forgiveness of all the sinful things we have done, said or even thought in the past, present, and future, even the sins of our deceased generations. Father in 1 John 1:9 it is written, that if we confess our sins, you are faithful, and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Father help us, to walk according to your will and ways that you have planned for us. Father in the Name of Jesus, I exercise the authority, and power you give me in (Luke 10:19) to bind, the devil’s hands off of your people, his sickness, diseases, hate, lack, and everything that is contrary to Your word, in the name of Jesus, and I ask you to loose the Holy Spirit to do what He needs to do in our lives and I loose healing (1 Peter:24), prosperity (Philippians 4:19), and the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22), in Jesus name, according to (Matthew 18:18). Devil your eviction notice have been served! Now Heavenly Father I thank you for those whom You have healed, delivered, and set free in the Name of Jesus, the name that is above every name (Philippians 2:9-11). Father, Your word says, in John 14:13-14, that whatsoever we shall ask for in Jesus’ Name it will be done, so that our Heavenly Father will be glorified. It is also written, in Numbers 23:19 that God is not a man, that He should lie, or repent, or not do what He says. Then Hebrews 6:18 tells us that it is impossible for God to lie. Also 2 Peter 3:9 tells us that God is not slack concerning His promises. So Father, Your word said it, I believe it, I accept, and receive it, I consider it done, signed, sealed, and delivered in Jesus Name. Amen.

If for whatever reason you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord, and Savior, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.
