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.

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.

WHO HE IS TO US

Just in case you never heard or you forgot, let me tell you about the God I serve:

He is my deliverer, He is my strength, He is my King of Kings, He is my Lord of Lords, He is my shield, He is my fortress, He is my redeemer, He is the great I AM. Do you know Him?

His mercy is everlasting, His truth is enduring, His grace is limitless, His love is unconditional, His peace surpasses all understanding, His joy only comes in the morning, Do you know Him?

He is Alpha and Omega, He is the Beginning and the End, He is the First and the Last, He is one of a kind, He does not report to no one, He is God all by Himself, Do you know Him?

He is Jehovah the Eternal one, He is Jehovah -Tsidkenu our righteousness, He is Jehovah-Jireh our provider, He is Jehovah-Shalom our peace, He is Jehovah-Nissi our banner, He is Jehovah-Shammah our present help, Do you know Him?

He is Omnipotent which is all-powerful, He Omniscient which is all-knowing, He is Omnipresent which means He is everywhere, Do you know him?

He is my comforter, He is my friend, He is my teacher, He is my guide, He is my healer, He is my doctor, He is my lawyer, He is my interpreter, He is my savior, Do you know Him?

He said, He will never leave me, nor forsake me ( Hebrew 13:5, Joshua 1:5), He said, He is my light, my salvation, and the strength of my life, so I must not be afraid (Psalm 27:1), He said, all things will work together for my good, just because I love Him(Romans 8:28), He said, I am more than a conqueror, because He loves me (Romans 8:37).

He told me to trust Him  with all my heart, and don’t depend on my own understanding, and to acknowledge Him, so that He can direct my path ( Proverbs 3:5-6), He assured me that nothing can separate me from His love ( Romans 8:38-39), He told me He is God, and beside Him there is no other (Isaiah 45:5), Do you know Him?

He told me, to tell you that, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variables, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17), and He loves you so much that,”He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” ( John 3:16), He said, not to believe the hype, nor lies of the enemy, because He sent His son, not to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved (John 3:17), He also said, that His son is the only way to Him (John 14:6, John 8:32, Romans 5:21).

Listen, this is what is written about Jesus,”God hath highly exalted Him, and give Him a name, which is above every other Name. That at the Name of Jesus every knee will bow, and every tongue must confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God (Philippians 2:9-11), He never forsakes those that seek Him (Psalms 9:9-10, Matthew 6:33).

FROM BAD TO GOOD

Most people fail to realize that to get to the good things in life you will have to experience or encounter some bad things. If you never had a bad relationship, marriage, job, even friends, then you will never know what the really good ones are like. Therefore bad situations are experiences that leads or motivates you to seek better. The truth is, if you invest or sow all your time and effort into bad people and things, then you will reap bad. “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man sows, that he will also reap; For he who sows to his flesh, will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life”(Galatians 6 :7-8). So who or what are you giving all your time and effort to? If you give it to God then you will reap good, but if you give it to the devil, you will definitely reap bad.

God tells us in His word that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him(Hebrew 11:6), which simply means if you do as Matthew 6:33 tells us, to seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness then He will add good things to you. You should also know that He only gives good and perfect gifts, according to James 1:17. When you seek God it means you are investing your time into Him, you are building a relationship which means you will reap the good that only He can give the best of, like a good relationship, a good job, a good car and whatever you need. However if you seek the things of the world before you seek Him, then you will reap bad, and you will be heading down the wrong path. Remember, He is a jealous God (Joshua 24:19) and no one likes to be second or last, especially Him.

If you have never encountered anything bad then it means you have settled, or compromised your values for anything or anyone. Some people take a few bumps and bruises, heartaches and heart breaks before they wake up, and stop going from bad to worse. Unfortunately the devil has opened our eyes and appetite to bad that we accept it as good. So Jesus had to come and show us the way, the truth, and how to do  good that leads to everlasting life, because no one was suitable or willing to sacrifice themselves for the good of mankind. We must realize that we don’t have the answers for everything, or to everything, but God does. That is why He advises us in Proverbs 3:5-6 to acknowledge Him in all our ways and He will direct our paths, if we trust Him. Unfortunately, most of us think we know everything only to find out we really don’t know anything.

Lets not despise every bad thing that happens to us in life, because some good always comes out of bad things, that’s why Romans 8:28 tells us that, all things work together for good to them that love God, and to those who are called according to His purpose. Do you love God? Are you one of the called according to His purpose? To seek and save the lost. Even Jesus was not thought of as good when Nathanael had the nerve to ask his brother if anything good can come out of Nazareth (John 1:46). Don’t let anyone doubt your capabilities of who you are and who you can become, or is entitled to, as children of God we know better days are always coming. Can you say or think like that? You can if you get to know Jesus and all the privileges we are entitled to through Him, and He is the only true access to God our Father (John 14:6).

Are you interested in knowing Jesus and having a relationship with God? If so go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Then you too can sing and look forward to better days.

Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to Him who is Immortal and Invisible, the only wise God, our Savior, be glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to release this message. In Jesus’ name, Amen

TRUE HAPPINESS

Most people seek happiness through other people, which simply means, if that person is in a bad mood there goes your happiness. Some it’s the amount of money they have, which simple means no money, no happiness. Now with different people it varies, based upon age, color, and nationality, while for some it’s just the simple things in life, but whatever category you fall under, true happiness is contentment, and contentment is satisfaction, and only one thing can satisfy everyone, that one thing is the love of God.

True Happiness is to be in love with God, because without a shadow of doubt; He is already in love with you. Why? Because He gave His only begotten son Jesus Christ of Nazareth, as a living sacrifice, Holy, and pure as payment for our sins (John 3:16-17, John 14:6). Now the only thing we can do in return, for His gift of His son, is to present our bodies as a living sacrifice Holy and acceptable unto God, which is our reasonable service (Romans 12:1). This my friends will allow you to explore, and experience the depth of true happiness. A kind of happiness that brings joy, peace, contentment, and love that only Jesus can give. He gives you peace, and happiness that the world, or nobody in it can give, which just makes you want to praise, thank, worship, and glorify Him all the time. Now if He inhabits the praises of His people and you praise Him when you are happy or sad, you will experience a joy that only salvation can give, only then my friends will you  find true happiness.

Let me explain something to you, once you seek Him, and acknowledge Him in everything; In return, He gives you the desires of your heart. The desires of your heart makes you praise Him; because once you are happy, He is happy; and like a proud Father He loves to see His children happy. Your happiness is contingent upon the love you have for your Heavenly Father. You love Him so much, seek Him, and put Him first…here comes your desires of a good husband or wife, good job, good house, prosperity blessings overflowing and bubbling over. Don’t you want this kind of happiness? Then you have to tap into the source and supplier of happiness to receive it and then give it or dish it out.

Psalm 92:12 tells us, “The righteous shall flow like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Labanon”. Don’t you want happiness, and the benefits that comes with it? If so, then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever did. Know God, know happiness; No God, no happiness. All glory, praises, honor, and thanks go to my Heavenly Father for using me to deliver His message to His children.

UNITY

I always love the saying, “united we stand, divided we fall,” unfortunately the devil has used this weapon of division, disunity, dysfunction, and diversion against us effectively or efficaciously.

First he starts with the family, then friends, then co-workers, and sadly enough, it has crept into the churches. Now we see churches competing, criticizing, and tearing each other down, we have a church on each corner, beside each other, sometimes ten different churches on the same street, and the devil is still running around, like a lunatic having a picnic, killing off our children, and elderly, raping, stealing, and spreading all kinds of sickness, and diseases on God’s children, while we the church, are busy fighting, complaining, and bickering, with each other!

Listen it’s time for the church to unite and exercise our power, authority, and rights, as children of the most High God. We have been divided long enough. It was not Jesus’ intentions, when He said, “upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it,” Jesus gave us the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven to bind and loose (Matthew 16:18-19), so hello church! We already have the power. Let’s demonstrate and exercise it. Jesus is our chief corner-stone (1 Peter 2:4-8), we already have the victory.

Wow! Listen to this, “Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in UNITY” (Psalm 133). Come on church let’s all unite, it’s the only way to trample the enemy. Get rid of that self-righteous spirit, there is only one ‘GREAT I AM’ (Exodus 3:14) anyone else, is an imposter.

It is written, ”For where two or three are gathered together in Jesus name, there He is in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). Now if He is with us when two or three are together, then He will definitely be with us when we unite as one church, like the day of pentecost (Acts 2:1-8). WOW! What a rejoicing and celebrating that would be, especially in this year 2011. Let’s do it church, spread the word, let’s do it, with the God we serve everything is possible (Matthew 19:26). COME ON CHURCH LETS UNITE!

I give my Heavenly Father, all the praise, glory, honor, and thanks for using me, to deliver such a powerful, and dynamic message, I pray all the churches will take heed, and be obedient to the word of God in Jesus Mighty Name I pray.

If you read this message, and you are not a Christian, please go to the top of this blog immediately, click on the salvation page, and follow the instructions. You will not regret this, I pray that God will bless, keep, and guide you in His perfect will and way through His son, Jesus Christ in whose name I pray, Amen.

SOMETHING ABOUT 40

Sometimes in life you must realize, that the answers you seek are not in people, places, or things. If at forty, you don’t know where you are, or where you are going then something is drastically wrong. What excites me about young people, especially those who are Christians, who are serving the Lord wholeheartedly, is that when they get to the age of forty, they would have accumulated supernatural faith to move any mountain, or obstacles in their lives. It will be easier for them to cast down doubts, fears, and imaginations that is contrary to God’s word.

There is something special about the number forty. The Israelites wandered around the wilderness, for forty years; Elijah, traveled for forty days and forty nights unto Horeb, the mountain of God. And Jesus, our Savior, was led into the wilderness, to be tested for forty days, and nights. And at the end of the forty days or years people get their prayers answered, and God gets the glory, all this is found in Exodus 14; 1 Kings 19:4; Luke 4 :1-13.

At forty years of age and up, you should not be gullible, oblivious, or be persuaded by anything or everything that comes your way, you should already know what you want, get what you want, or close to what you want. Now, if at forty, you don’t have a clue as to where to go, or what to do, I can introduce you to someone, who knows the way you should go, the truth about yourself, and your life, and the best thing is, He can give you eternal life, solve all your problems, feed you and clothe you. He has all the answers to your questions. His name is Jesus, God’s only begotten Son.

Jesus after the forty days and nights, came out more powerful, with more wisdom, knowledge, and understanding than ever. But the best part is He had more Word in Him. He exercised His God given rights to use the Word. When the devil came calling, Jesus told Him that it was written. And when the devil tried to use the scripture against Him, He let him know what His heavenly Father says, and means (Luke 4:1-13). Let’s submit to God, and use His Word, like Jesus did, to resist the devil so he will flee from us also (James 4:7).

If for whatever reason, you don’t know who Jesus or God is, go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions.

I thank God for using me to share this message with you. I pray that you will allow Him to lead and guide you on the right path. To Him be the glory, praise, honor in Jesus Name, Amen.

WHOSE LIST ARE YOU ON

I was looking at Forbes list of the richest people in the world, and I did not see my name.Then it dawned on me, I was looking on the wrong list, my name shouldn’t be on that list. It’s on the heaven bound list(Luke 10:20). I don’t know about anyone else, but I would rather live forever, than be rich for thirty years and end up in hell.

When you die your money is no good, where ever you end up, bet you never thought of that, you spend your whole life trying to get it, and can’t take it with you.

The richest man who ever walked this earth was, King Jesus and He said,’it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God’ (Matthew 19:24).

How many of these multi – billionaires you hear of or know of, die ,and take money with them, or fame, popularity, or prestige, lets face facts. When you die, where ever you end up, there is no Forbes list, no popularity list, no nationality list, you get the picture. There will be two lists, one for heaven, and one for hell, which list are you on?

I know, I am on the heaven bound list, because:

1) I admit that I am a sinner in need of repentance.

2)I ask God to forgive me, and He did. 

3) I believe that God, sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to save me, so I accepted Him, and asked Him to come into my heart, and stay there. Since then I’ve become a new creature  and live for Him daily.

Your future can be secure also, just try Him. John 14:6 tells us,’He(Jesus) is the only way, truth, and life, no one goes to God without going through Him. Will you accept Gods gift now, tomorrow might be too late, do you really want to take that chance to continue living without God, do as I did and let Him into your heart.

I GIVE THANKS, PRAISE, GLORY AND HONOR TO GOD FOR USING ME TO SHARE HIS MESSAGE WITH YOU, MAY GOD BLESS, KEEP, AND GUIDE YOU DOWN THE RIGHT PATH IN JESUS NAME I PRAY, AMEN.

DEATH OR LIFE

I wonder how many times God is going to save us from death and destruction, before we acknowledge and serve Him. I wonder if He decides not to wake us up or give us grace and mercies for a day, how would we feel, act, behave or survive? What if He decided not to give us any kind of light or oxygen, not to mention food or water. We would die in such a state. I think most of us take Him for granted too much.

Yes, Psalm 103:8-10, tells us, “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy. However, He will not always strive with us; neither will He keep His anger forever. He hath not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities.”

If you know the Bible, it says, “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ, our Lord (Romans 6:23). For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall he give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:26).

Don’t you think you are taking a big chance with your life? What if God decided, not to wake you up, or save you from an accident. You should know where you will end up, Heaven or Hell.

Jesus, in Luke 17:32-33 mentioned Lot’s wife in Genesis 19:17-26. The angels told her not to look back. I guess she was missing her old lifestyle before she started the new one, this led to her death). ”People who try to save their lives will lose them, and those who lose their lives will save them.”

Hey! It’s your life and your choice. No one is forcing or begging you, hopefully you will give Him your life today, tomorrow might be too late. If you want to live forever go to the top of this blog, then click on to the salvation page and follow the instructions.

In John 10:6, Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for He is with me, His rod and staff comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)

I GIVE GOD THE THANKS, PRAISE, GLORY AND HONOR, FOR USING ME TO GET HIS MESSAGE OUT TO YOU, MAY HE BLESS, KEEP, AND GUIDE YOU IN JESUS NAME. Amen.
