THE WAR WITHIN

Have you ever been in a fight where the odds are stacked up against you, the person might be bigger, stronger, taller, tougher, and probably will knock the taste out of your mouth. But you decided win or lose you are in it to win, and to the end. Did you know that, we are in a fight every day, with the spirits in us, we have the good and the evil, sweet and bitter, love and hate; the sad thing is the one that wins or dominates, dictates the course for our lives.
Paul sums it up,in Romans 7:14-25 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.

However, as Christians we have the ultimate advantage, and we will be victorious, and triumphant every time if we follow the Gods plan.

Here is His plans:

(1) You must realize the battle or fight is not ours, it’s Gods, (Joshua 23:10;Deuteronomy 3:22; 1 Samuel 17:47; 2 Chronicles 20:15,the list goes on).

(2)Greater is He who is in you, than he that is in the world.(1 John 4:4).

(3)You must remain in righteousness, so that God can fight and deliver you(2 Samuel 22:18-21).

(4)According to Ephesians 6:12,’we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places’. Ecclesiastes 9:11-12 tells us ,’the battle is not for the strong’,plus a few other facts on life. Allow God to fight, and stop depending on your flesh or strength 2 Chronicles 32:8.

Now that you see who you are fighting, do you really think you stand a chance, without God fighting for you. Hey if you do good luck, I am depending on God.

Allow God to teach your hands to war, and your fingers to fight(Psalm 144:1). I use my hands to pick up the Bible, and my fingers to turn the pages of the bible to the scripture, chapter and verse that will replace the enemies thoughts of defeats, failure, lies and propaganda that he uses to distort and taint the mind. Then my faith in God, plus my prayers. I can’t lose.

Don’t try to fight the devil on your own, he will knock the daylight out of you, he will never touch you where two or three of you are gathered in Jesus Name, plus touching and agreeing, why? because Jesus is there in the midst(Matthew 18:20).

Listen to win you need Jesus, He is the only way to God (John 14:6),please try Him, you will not be disappointed, just go to the top of this blog to the salvation page and follow the instructions.

 I thank God for you and pray that He will bless, guide and lead you down the right path, I give Him the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me as a righteous vessel, to bring you his message, in Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT

Sometimes it takes drastic circumstances or measures to get our undivided attention. Why must we lose a love one, our jobs, possessions, or get sick, before we turn to God. The sad thing about it, is that’s the time, when we are exposed, and most vulnerable, thus allowing us to do, and accept things, we will regret later on in life. But I must tell you, that is the time when God is waiting with open arms to receive us. He tells us, ”His grace is sufficient for us; because His strength is made perfect in our weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). We should never allow, our circumstances to dictate how we think, or behave. Because, it is then we make the biggest mistakes of our lives. Normally, this is the best time to seek God (Matthew 6:33), and acknowledge Him, so that He can direct your path (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Please don’t accept, and receive Gods word in some areas of your life, and don’t apply it, when you need it the most. ‘Gods word should always be a lamp to our feet, and a light to our path'(Psalms 119:105). Gods word is the best weapon, that exists to combat the enemies, of our thoughts, doubts, fears, evils, mediocrity, and low self-esteem. Allow the word of God to speak life into your circumstances. Lets start with,”many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivered him out of them all”(Psalms 34:19),God says,”His plans for us, is to prosper, and not harm us, to give us hope, and a future (Jeremiah 29:11), we are more than conquerors, because He loves us (Romans 8:37), when all else fails, there is only one alternative, and He is God, follow the professionals in the Bible, who have been there, and done that.

One of my favorites was David, he had a tumultuous life, troubles, defeat, failures, and disappointments, but he was still blessed, and highly favored. Check it out for your self, he wrote most, if not all the Psalms, listen to this one, “I was young, and now I am old; but I have never seen the righteous forsaken; nor his seed begging bread” (Psalms 37:25). All through the Psalms, he beged, cried, prayed, and God always helped him. Because, David always praised, thanked, and sang to Him (God). Listen to what David said, “I will praise the Lord at all times; His praises shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1), “but I will hope continually, and will praise you yet more and more, my mouth shall tell of your righteousness, and your salvation all the day, for I do not know their limits”(Psalms 71:14 -15). When God helps you, are you hiding it? It’s no secret what God can do. Are you taking all the credit for yourself, telling people, how educated you are, or how pretty you are, that’s why you are where you are, you better stop that. Please folks allow God to supply your needs, according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus(Philippians 4:19), and let the world knows.

Beloved, God has sent His only begotten son, into the world, as payment for our sins, if you believe, and accept Him (John 3:16; John 6:40). I don’t care what anyone says, Jesus is the only way to God, John 14:6 says so.

I implore you, to taste and see that the Lord is good, and blessed are the people who trust in Him (Psalm 34:8, and 119:103), if you have never met Jesus, let me introduce you to Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, trust me it will be the best decision, and choice you ever make. I give God the glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me to deliver, his message to His people, I hope it blessed you, as it did me, I pray that He will keep you, and guide you, to obey His will, and travel down His paths in Jesus Name, amen.

OUR LIMITLESS GOD

There is nothing too hard or impossible for God. Therefore we should never measure God’s unlimited and Omnipotent power,by our limited expectations ,crippled by doubts , fear and unbelief.
This is what God is saying to us today,
“According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory. For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen”.{Ephesians 3:11‭-‬21 }

‘Ah, Lord God ! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. “Behold, I am the Lord , the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?
[Jeremiah 32:17, 27 ].
WHAT GOD can do in a second, takes a life time for some folks to do.

REMEMBER :
Jesus said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”(Luke 18:27 )

LISTEN :
It’s normally when we are desperate,needy,or in pain, when most people turn to God,or they feel desolate,isolated,forsaken ,and stripped of their human dignity,before they turn to God,or when we get anxious,worried,fearful ,that’s when we remember that there is a God,and decide to look for Him,because He is the only way out. And there is nothing too hard for Him to do.
“Is anything too hard for the Lord ? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.” [Genesis 18:14].

Folks it should not be this way,God has never withheld anything from us,He gave us His only begotten son Jesus (John 3:16) just out of pure love. You must begin to see that the God we serve is Sovereign,and is faithful to His word(Numbers 23:19),our God is unchangeable,He is the same yesterday,today,and forever(Hebrews 13:8). Lets start seeking,praising,thanking,and glorifying our limitless God, who can do “..Exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think”(Ephesians 3:20).

Why are we not committed to our limitless God? Why do we wait for something drastic,and dramatic to happen before we turn to Him? Is it because you don’t want to be submitted to Him or is it out of ignorance? well listen to what (Romans 10:23)  says,”For they being ignorant of Gods righteousness,and going about to establish their own righteousness,have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God”.

Is it because you don’t love Him? We love Him,because He first love us(1 John 4:19),”Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,all thy soul ,all thy strength,with all thy mind;and thy neighbor as thyself “(Luke 10:27).Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity (Ephesians 6:24).

Don’t you trust God? The Bible says,”Trust in the Lord with all thine heart,and lean not unto thine own understanding,but in all thy ways acknowledge Him,and He will direct your paths(Proverbs 3:5-6).The Lord is good,a stronghold in the day of trouble;and He knows those who trust Him (Nahum 1:7).Job said,”though He slay me,yet will I trust Him”(Job 13:15).God will keep you in perfect peace,when you keep your mind stayed on Him,and trust Him(Isaiah 26:3).

Don’t you want to submit to God? Don’t you realize that whomever or whatever you choose to obey becomes your master? you can choose sin,which leads to death,or you can choose to obey God,and receive His approval.(Romans 6:16).No man can serve two masters(Matthew 6:24).

Haven’t you realize yet, that He is the one who supplies your every needs,not your job,education,spouse,boss or any earthly person,He will use them ,but the buck stops with him.”But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). You do know who Jesus is? He is Gods special gift to us (John 3:16);He is the only way to God and eternal life (John 14:6),now if you don’t Him personally go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions. you will never regret or forget this day.

I give God the glory,praise,honor,and thanks for using me to put His message out there,I pray it will be a blessing to you.

ENCOURAGEMENT FOR THE JOURNEY

1.God is our refuge and strength,a very present help in trouble (Psalms 46:1)

2.For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous;but the way of the ungodly shall perish (Psalm 1:6).

3.There is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus ,when we walk after the spirit ,and not the flesh(Romans 8:1)

4.After hearing the word of truth about salvation,and believing we are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise ( Ephesians 1:13)

5.The lord is our helper,so there is no reason to fear,what men will do;God never leaves or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5-6;Deuteronomy 31:5)

6.Don’t forget that we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus who loves us,and gave His life for us (Romans 8:37)

7.Because we believe in Jesus Christ we will have everlasting life(John 6 :40)

8.God will keep us in perfect peace,when we keep our minds on Him and trust Him (Isaiah 26:3)

9.Our God will supply our needs,according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4 :19)

10. We must present our bodies as a living sacrifice to God as our reasonable service (Romans 12:1); because the wages of sin is death ,but the gift of God is  eternal life ( Romans 6:23)

As a believer in God and His only begotten son Jesus Christ(John 3:16-17), we can say these quotes and more with confidence,and blessed assurance that Jesus will come again,and that’s why we worship and adore Him.Now if you don’t know God and His son who was crucified for our sins,and is the only way to God and eternal life( John 14:6),allow me to introduce Him to you.

Now to the king Eternal,Immortal,Invisible,the only wise God, to Him be the glory,praise,honor,and thanks for using me to minister to His people.

VICTORY IS YOURS

No matter how things look,don’t give up,nor quit,just stand still and watch God turn your circumstances around ,by turning your messes into messages, your tests into a testimonies, your trials into triumphs and turn yourself from being a victim to becoming a victor. How? Well you have to accept a few things and the first being Gods gift of his only begotten son, Jesus Christ. You have to believe that God sent Him to save us (John 3:16) and Jesus is our way to God. Jesus told us the truth about God and granted us eternal life (John 14:6; John 6:40) and because of him we are more than conquerors ( Romans 8:37).

In Matthew 16:19 Jesus said,”I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven and what you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and what you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven”. 1 John 4:4 says that “You, little children, are of God and have overcome them; because greater is He (God) who is in you than he that is in the world.” In Luke 10:19 God says: Behold, I give unto you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. With this power nothing shall, by any means, hurt you.”

Now go unto Him, he who is able to do exceedingly abundant things above all that we ask or think of, according to the power that works in us (Ephesians 3:20). Come on children of God, you need to exercise your power and activate your strength. Philippians 4:13 tells us that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us which means victory is ours! If you feel left out of Gods promises it’s because you know and feel that you are not one of His children. be strong and change that today! Go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page and follow the simple instructions. To God be the glory now and forever more. Angels are celebrating your acceptance into the kingdom of heaven as well as your choice to accept Gods gift of His son Jesus Christ.

BE DELIVERED from mental slavery

Mental slavery has been our biggest defeat for decades. The enemy has brainwashed us and dis-combobulated our minds with so much lies and deceit that we don’t know who to trust and believe.He has successfully planted doubt and fear into people’s minds that they are confused and destroyed because of a lack of knowledge. Just as it is written in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” There is the problem. We’ve stopped serving God and have eliminate Him out of our lives and now it’s affecting our children in a devastating fashion.

What did you really think would happen when you remove God out of schools and everything else? When you pass laws that are contrary to God’s words, plans, and will? It has gotten so bad that people in these latter days have strayed from Gods truth, His promises, and His word so much that we have invited perilous times on ourselves because the fear of God has escaped our logic, our thoughts, and our minds; whichever fits you best. What is it with today’s society, that when people are delivered from something or someone they behave or act like they are still in bondage.

Children of God, lets not be like the children of Israel who was freed physically but incarcerated in their minds. We must purge our minds and thoughts of everything that wants to keep us in sin. God sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to liberate us (John 3:16-17) and the good news is that He did. Folks no one else can deliver us from the devil and hell, except Jesus Christ. John 14:6 tells us He is the way, the truth, and the life and NO ONE goes to God except through Him. Whose report are you believing? Who do you trust? The creator or the created? God or the devil? Be delivered today!

Colossians 1:13 tells us, “He (God) has delivered (rescued) us from the power of darkness and conveyed (brought) us into the Kingdom of the son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.”

Because of this we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His (Gods) own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9). Come on children of God lets walk, talk, and act like we have been delivered.

And those people who have not been delivered or set free from the clutches of the enemy, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Let me assure you time is running out. Stop delaying and procrastinating, in earlier years only old folks pass away, now in the latter days, if you notice younger folks are dying before the old ones. The cycle has reversed. Parents are burying their children instead of children burying their parents, think about it. It is appointed unto men once to die after that it’s judgement (Hebrews 9:27). Make your appointment to go to heaven, it’s a one time deal, there is no other bargain.

All praises, glory, honor, and thanks go to God for using me in these last days to minister to His people. I pray that God will fill you with the knowledge of His will, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you will walk worthy of the Lord fully pleasing Him in Jesus Name, 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? If you are interested 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 get His word to His people.
