GOD PRESENTED HIM AS A SACRIFICE OF ATONEMENT THROUGH FAITH IN HIS BLOOD. HE DID THIS TO DEMONSTRATE HIS JUSTICE, BECAUSE OF HIS FORBEARANCE HE HAD LEFT THE SINS COMMITTED BEFOREHAND UNPUNISHED. ~ HE DID IT TO DEMONSTRATE HIS JUSTICE AT PRESENT TIME, SO AS TO BE JUST AND THE ONE WHO JUSTIFIES THOSE WHO HAVE FAITH IN JESUS.” ROMANS 3
 
 
WITHOUT CHRIST JESUS WE HAVE NO RIGHTEOUSNESS OF OUR OWN. BY HAVING FAITH AND BELIEVING IN CHRIST JESUS GOD IMPUTED HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS TO US.

Revelation, A Case Study of A Valid Prophecy Part l

 

 

 

 

 

JESUS IS Coming Soon! IF HE Came Today; Are You Ready?

A Valid Prophecy

The Book of Revelation is quite an interesting, intriguing narrative account of the grand finale! Bursting at the seam it encompasses a great wealth of relative, similar, prophetic symbolism that is also found in the Books of Daniel and Zechariah. It is in Revelation that John shares his many quite extraordinary, remarkable visions. John endured a lot of persecution because of his faith and belief in Jesus Christ. It is here on the rocky island of Patmos John was exiled because he would not worship the pagan image of emperor Domitian.

What is so amazing there was improvement needed in each of the churches. John writes to the churches to help get them get themselves in order. He is obedient to make known what the Lord has given him to share. He candidly and transparently writes to the Church in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Tyatira, Sardis, Philadellphia and unto Laodicea. He warns them and tells them what is to come. He tells them to take head to what he is saying.

The Apostle John was a leader of the Church in Rome. He was placed on the rocky Isle of Patmos to be put to shame. He was isolated or rather banished because of His strong belief and testimony in Christ Jesus. The irony of this is John was deeply inspired by GOD. Therefore he did not allow his physicality to hinder him from being a yielded vessel to the Lord. No doubt he learned first hand “to be in the world but not of the world” Here on Patmos the Lord gave the Apostle John phenomenal vivid picturesque 3D visions of what was to come.

Revelation is a magnificent Book of Prophecy. It was shared and disbursed to the (7) seven Churches within Asia which was a province in the ancient Roman Empire. Today we and the Church at large down through the ages have continued to benefit greatly from Revelation and its intriguing spiritual wisdom. Always keep in mind that seven is the number of completion.

The beauty of the Lord is He does sometime require that we disengage from the world. But never isolate ourselves from Him. “Draw nigh to GOD and HE will draw nigh to you!” Most writers or scribes are accustomed to spending time away in order to bring forth a message. God did not make any of us to be robots. He who in the fullness of His sovereign power allows us to choose. It is wise to spend time in the presence of the LORD! He sharpens and refines our discernment. As we grow in the grace and wisdom of the Lord we become more aware of who He is. The incredible thing about the Lord is we are never away from HIS OMNIPRESENCE.

Scores of readers shy away from reading Revelation and find some of its contents a bit disturbing. Others simply find it weird and even a bit irrational. However, when one looks closer through a spiritual lens you will discover that John truly and unselfishly intended to enlighten, inspire hope and encouragement in the midst of his own personal predicament. Revelation contains valid prophecy and a plethora of spiritual blessings.

The (7) Seven Churches

The person of Jesus Christ, His divine nature and character are transparently revealed in Revelation. Revelation comes from the Greek word apokalypsis, it means the unveiling of something that was previously unrevealed. The Apostle John saw amazing enlightening visions that he was instructed to write down while exiled to the Island of Patmos. He was directed by the Lord to send letters to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea they were within the province of Asia. Within these seven cities the Church had been established. Remember John had been exiled to Patmos for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Revelation has been described as one of the most complicated, intimidating Books in the Bible. One might pose the question; “Well if it is so complicated then why bother at all to read Revelation?” First and foremost because it is the inspired Word of God. John gives us a profound reason to persevere through its contents. One must certainly solicit the aid and assistance of the Holy Spirit to open your spiritual ears for any lucid clarity. John himself really answers that question earlier on. He tells us that “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take it to heart what is written in it, because the time is near…”

The Apostle John astutely reinforces the fact that Jesus Christ is Lord! Everything was spoken into existence by Him and He is the Head of GOD’S CHURCH! He lived here on earth as the Son of GOD and He is the KING of Kings and the LORD of Lords.

CHRIST JESUS: THE WORD IN SINLESS FLESH

Here in Revelation we are reminded that Jesus created all things and all things are subject to Him. This was also confirmed in Colossians 1 & John 1. This further helps one to understand why Jesus humbled Himself, and actually became the “Word in Sinless Flesh.” It was out of obedience to the will of the Father that JESUS came to earth from Heaven. He Lived a disciplined sinless life and overcame sin in the flesh. He was heinously beaten, persecuted and slandered. He was crucified upon the cross, died, then arose gloriously with all power. CHRIST JESUS BECAME THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE and died for the sins of the world! Here we learn the immense significance of His amazing position as the “Lamb of God.” He once and for all gave His life. For those who believe this is the GOSPEL the “GOOD NEWS!” Just by knowing who we are in Him helps us to live or can help us to live victoriously as John did despite his situation and what was happening in the world!

Essentially our purpose for life and living is to discover GOD as our CREATOR and MAKER. To seek Him above everything else. We as believers belong to GOD. Therefore, we must accept CHRIST JESUS into our hearts as our LORD & SAVIOR! For we who are believers have been purchased with His Blood. GOD bestows upon us the precious “GIFT” of HIS HOLY SPIRIT; HIS COMFORTER TO LEAD US to ALL TRUTH! We must always keep in mind that The CHURCH belongs to HIM. CHRIST JESUS IS THE HEAD OF HIS CHURCH & HIS CHURCH IS HIS BRIDE!

Revelation contains an affluent wealth of prophetic visions that stretches one’s imagination to think far beyond the surface. To ponder and launch out into the deep where one’s faith or lack thereof becomes apparent. John goes on to describe the events on a scroll to be sent to the seven (7) cities where the Church was established. The seven (7) Spirits are the eyes of God which are spiritual facets of God’s Holy Spirit. The seven (7) gold lampstands represent the Church. To each of them he has some very specific and interesting comments. Take some time and see where your congregation of choice is? “He who has an ear, let Him hear what the Spirit says to the Church.”

It is important today in this 21st century to be mindful that the scriptures are being fulfilled. GOD’S WORD IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! God wants us to have an intimate daily personal relationship with Him. He is the Most High God above Him is no other! It is important to know the Lord’s Word for yourself. This way you “will no longer be infants tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming…” as expressed in Ephesians 4.

Ongoing Spiritual Warfare

It is here in Revelation that we are reminded of the ongoing spiritual warfare that was and has continued to go on within and against God’s Church. Keep in mind when Revelation was written the many large, small, storefront and or mega buildings where the Church comes together for worship did not exist. We are to worship God daily. Yes we can come together to worship. With two, three, a few, many or a multitude… We the people are GOD’S CHURCH not the buildings we gather together in. When CHRIST returns we will be “CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM in the CLOUDS to MEET THE LORD in the AIR. SO SHALL WE FOREVER BE WITH HIM ” I Thessalonians 4

We live within a Spiritual warzone. The war between good and evil continues to divide God’s Church. This is again why it is so very important to have an intimate personal relationship with the Lord and know His Word. Revelation does not easily open its contents for one to readily embrace and understand. One must seek and call upon the Holy Spirit to keep you attentive. To continue through the many passages that requires a deep concentration and steadfastness through the many tumultuous interludes.This is also why it is so very important to worship the LORD “in SPIRIT and in TRUTH” whenever or wherever you worship; GOD indeed, is always truly worthy of our sincere praise!

All in all Revelation major overtones reassures us that our HOPE and TRUST must be in the Lord. John clearly reminds us that GOD alone, gave His only Begotten Son to redeem us from the clutches of sin and death and insure our access to eternal life!

Seven (7) is the Number of Completion

It is through Adam & Eve that sin and death entered our existence. During one’s mesmerizing safaric enlightening journey through Revelation there are many turns and unexpected surprises. Vivid, veracious scenes depicting the seven (7) seals, seven (7) trumpets, scrolls, exotic creatures, dragons and angels, seven (7) plagues and seven (7) bowls of God’s wrath, and a wondrous plethora of rare precious gemstones and so much more… Here in Revelation there is also a wonderful vision magnificently illustrating the joy and honor for being invited to the great wedding supper.

SEVEN (7) is the number of COMPLETION! It is within the LORD we can become complete. Everything we will ever need for life, daily living & eternal life we can discover in Him. The KING of Kings and the LORD of Lords emerges and gives us a marvelous glimpse of what Heaven is like. Always keep in mind; It is through Jesus Christ’s love for us, His birth, sinless life, crucifixion, death and resurrection that we have been redeemed and given the gift of eternal life. Within the power of His Glorious Resurrection is our Eternal Hope!

What has been happening within our country and throughout this world…

Yes, our country had a dreadful economic crisis, and property values plummeted and are now slowly rising. Extreme climatic weather conditions worldwide have been occurring. A multiplicity of extreme devastating forest fires persist. And yes, we are also experiencing the collateral damage of this Pandemic Coronavirus all over the world… Millions have been globally impacted. Hundreds of thousands have lost their lives and many have despairingly suffered. Things on the earth will never be quite as they were. As long as there are human beings on earth we can expect something…

In His time the Lord will restore whatever has been unjustly taken from us. God always has something better in store. He will also strengthen and solidify your trust in Him as we embrace and apply His Word to our daily lives… With the Lord nothing is ever really lost it is often shifted to another form or location or held in abeyance momentarily. Know that God never has a recession in Heaven or earth. The earth and everything in it is His! He so graciously allows us here on earth to momentarily partake in His many blessings. Everything really does belongs to Him!


There is much spiritual warfare going on to undermine the principles of God. Look all around and see the things that have happened contrary to His Word! The Supreme Court even voted against the WORD of GOD in favor of “same sex unions.”


Yes there has been is a plethora of foreign and domestic terrorism. There is also a resurgence of racial discrimination, systemic racism, racial profiling, violation of privacy as well as escalating of the many varied and random senseless shootings…

Yes, let us be ever mindful of the earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, fires flooding, mudslides, rain, sleet, snow, fierce winds, storms, tsunamis and various horrendous extreme climatic weather conditions. The massive destructive heinous fires as well. Many lives, homes, businesses, possessions and sanctuaries have been lost. Pray for those who are going through and for those who continue to experience the repercussions of the aftermath from all of the various storms. In times like these we need a Savior.

We must learn to keep our focus upon the Lord!


Let us not overlook the scandalous political forum that persists. It is clear that the WORD of GOD is being fulfilled for some of everything is going on. Pandora’s Box has lost its lid.

All of this serves to confirm the authenticity of God’s Word! There is yet more to come.

It is so very important to spend some time daily in the Word of God! Pray for discernment so you can better discern what time it is. God has forewarned is to live each day as though the Lord were going to return.

The Angel in REVELATION speaks candidly to the Churches

In Revelation an angel of the Lord reminds us that “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord the God of the spirits and prophets, sent an angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.” God knows us from the inside out through and through. He knows the why, who what, and why not. You may not want to think about it but time is of the essence. Our entire lives are an open book to the Lord this is inclusive of everyone all over this entire universe!

It is important that we keep in mind that our life continues on throughout eternity. It is important that you know without doubt for sure where you will spend eternity! This is not based upon what someone says, thinks or does not say about you. It is based on His Word and knowing without a doubt that it is to Him you belong. “It is in Him we move and live and have our being.”

Hear what His Spirit has to say “BLESSED are those who wash their robes, that they may go through the gates of the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehoods…”

Although Revelation may be difficult to comprehend at times, I want to encourage you to read on prayerfully. Remember the Word of God is like no other. It is “quick (alive) and powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword…”Since it is so full of vibrant life, each time you take time to read it and glean it’s wisdom your spiritual ears and eyes are opened just that much more! You can learn something new each time. And yes most definitely, Revelation always keep in mind is a valid prophecy

If you have truly accepted Jesus Christ into your heart you have been granted the “GIFT” of Eternal Life in Heaven. God is your Father & Creator! But, have you really given some serious thought to what eternity will be like? Are you really living today to prepare to live with the Lord for eternity? Imagine The Word tells us that there will be no more, death, pain or sorrow!“GOD will wipe every tear from their eyes; AND THERE WILL BE NO MORE death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there b an more pain. for the former things are passed away!” Revelation 21 For there will be ongoing praising & rejoicing...

It is important to realize when you truly are living for the Lord whatever you are going through its not over for you. It’s just temporary. REPENT! Have FAITH in GOD! In the end “WE WIN” GOD always has the last WORD! “These are the words of HIM who is HOLY and TRUE, who holds the KEY of DAVID, What HE opens NO ONE can shut, and what HE shuts NO ONE can open!”

GENESIS to REVELATION

The Bible starts with a marvelous story of Creation. Genesis records the Beginning. Revelation records the End. It concludes with the creation of a new heaven and earth in Revelation. Those who overcome through Jesus Christ will “stand firm in the end.” (evil will not be able to mimic itself as good and continue to deceive many…) We don’t know the day nor the hour but JESUS is coming soon!!! We can draw nigh to GOD everyday. For HE will draw nigh to you. We can also rest assured that CHRIST JESUS is coming back for those who have not already transitioned and gone on to Heaven! Yes; know there will be some who do not believe who will be “left behind.” YOU have a choice! Life is but a vapor. Your day of transitioning to the Lord can come any day… So, start preparing and living NOW EVERYDAY as though you really are expecting CHRIST JESUS to return TODAY!

The Promises of GOD will be fulfilled! HIS WORD will not return void.

In this world where disobedience, mistreatment, persecution, immorality, evil, lying, SPIRITUAL WARFARE and deception continue to rise and escalate… CHRIST JESUS OUR SAVIOR tells us to endure by FAITHTRUST HIM! In spite of how things appear. He really does ultimately have ALL things and everyone under His control! His message of Love, Repentance, Faith and Salvation are extended to ALL!

“THANK YOU HALLLELLLUJAH!”

HE IS The GOOD SHEPHERD! HE IS The “BRIGHT and MORNING STAR!” HE IS The GREAT; “I AM” and above HIM is no other! HE IS The ALPHA and The OMEGA THE BEGINNING AND THE END! THE FIRST & THE LAST! HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY! We CAN ALWAYS have HOPE and TRUST in THE LORD & HIS WORD! Therefore, LIVE EVERYDAY; “TO GOD BE THE GLORY!” & FOREVER BLESS HIS HOLY NAME!!!

True Security & Significance is only found in the Lord!

REVELATION

Case Study of A Valid Prophecy

~ Part II ~

 

Revelation is an incredibly mesmerizing book about the present, the future and what is to come. Here we can find HOPE for NOW and in the future! John prolifically writes as he shares his vociferously illuminating intense visions while horrendously banished to the isle of Patmos. At some point in time life as we know it will end. It may be hard to fathom but one day the Lord is going to put an end to evil. Jesus Christ will emerge in the clouds suddenly and victoriously!

“For the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven, with God and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” I Thessalonians 4.

HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?

Revelation is a powerfully complex book of prophecy. But how did it all begin anyway? Step back with me a bit to the very beginning. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the face of the deep, and the Spirit of the God was hovering over the waters. And God said, Let there be Light and there was Light. God saw that the Light was Good and He separated the Light from the darkness…” Genesis 1. (here you will find the rest of The Creation history) From the beginning of time Light was separated from the darkness!

“Then God said, “Let us make man in our own image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them…” Genesis 2. When God placed Adam in the garden with it was much freedom as well as dominion over the animals! He was told to work and take care of the land as well. Adam also named all the animals. No doubt that Adam was a genius of a man created, shaped and made alive by God himself. God told Adam; “You are free to eat from any tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.” Genesis 2. God could have very well just not let Adam eat from the tree, but He gave Adam a choice. He did not make him a robot. Now we know God created the first man. NO! We did not evolve from apes or a “big bang!” Read on if you need more proof.

God decided it was not good for Adam to be alone so He made Eve. “But for the man there was not a suitable helper found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall in a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord made a woman from the rib He had taken out of man, and He brought her to man” Genesis 2. This is also verifies the first surgery. Truly God is the Doctor of doctors. He is the greatest physician ever! He made and therefore knows exactly what is necessary… Here as well is the first marriage. By the way, God’s design for marriage has not changed. Marriage is also the 1st institution God Made! One Man and one woman constitutes Holy Matrimony, which is marriage God’s Way!

Always keep in mind; God did not make us to be robots. From the very beginning God has given us the ability to choose. GOD IS LOVE and HE loves us. He gives us the freedom to learn how to love and live for Him! Here is a vital significant imperative life lesson. God adamantly told Adam “DO NOT” eat the fruit. Yet, Adam Choose to instead listen to Eve and went against what God said. The serpent, (satan) said to Eve “Did God really say, you must not really eat from the fruit in the garden?” Since the fruit was good and pleasing to the eyes and desirable Eve ate the fruit! Then gave some to Adam which he ate it as well… Here enters sin. The rest is history. Sin is anything that separates us from GOD! Time after time all throughout history in every subsequent generation when man does what God says “DO NOT” it always results in chaos! Instead satan makes one doubt what God really said. Or they simply choose to not listen and “do their own thing!” This is why it is so important to know the Word of God for yourself!!

Daily follow CHRIST JESUS!

Here in Revelation the last book in the Bible, we discover what happens when what we have come to know as “living,” will come to an end! Genesis is the beginning where it all started. There is so much in between. HEAVEN IS GOD’S THRONE and earth is GOD’S footstool. I suggest daily spending some time in the Word just getting to know more about life and many of the events that have taken place. There is nothing more important in life than to build an ongoing relationship with the Lord! GOD is the source of every good and perfect gift! HIS WORD; The Scriptures are powerful, “ALIVE” and full of godly spiritual wisdom!

BEWARE; For there have been many false prophesies

John in Revelation himself predicts Jesus’ announced return to the earth! It was erroneously predicted that the end of the world was coming in 2012. (PLEASE DO NOT TAKE HEED TO FALSE PROPHECY REGARDLESS OF WHO IT COMES FROM! ) Somewhere between December 21 and December 23 in 2012; it was said that there were going to be transformative events that would take place. It was thought; according to a Mayan long count calendar after 5,125 years the end of life as we now know it was to take place? It was believed that astronomical alignments combined with possible numerological formulas have contributed to this high probability of the end of the world event. Well it did not happen!

Another misinformed predictor, Patrick Geryl, a laboratory researcher erroneously believed as well that the end of life was slated for 2012. He even started a “survival group” of both men and women who shared his belief. Believing that we were due for catastrophic events he quit his job in preparation for this forthcoming event? He gathered a hoard of survival equipment. His group was building cement dwellings and caves…

He believed there would be nothing left? He predicted that “First, a polar reversal will cause the north to become the south and the sun to rise in the west. Shattering earthquakes, massive tidal waves and simultaneous volcanic eruptions will follow. Nuclear reactors will melt, buildings will crumble, and a cloud of volcanic dust will block out the sun for 40 years. Only the prepared would survive, Geryl said, and not even all of them…” There are many others throughout the world that shared his belief that the end was coming in 2012 a doomed apocalyptic event was inevitable” said Geryl. Not so! Well guess what the earth is still here. God has already told us that no one knows when the end come.

We can see through God’s Word that we are certainly in the latter end of the last days. (NO DOUBT THAT THE “PERILOUS DAYS” ARE UPON US. THERE IS MUCH MORE TURULENCE TO COME… ) Any & everything is going on that is contrary to God’s Word. This is why it is so very important to know the WORD of GOD for yourself. Pray for increased spiritual discernment!

Revelation is an excellent resource of prophecy. It is a series of profound prophetic visions it is the book of consummation. In the Greek the title of this text is called Apokalypsis Ioannnou = Revelation of John, which means “unveiling, disclosure or revelation” Revelations is noteworthy Apocalyptic literature. It is the most cryptic book in the Canon of Scriptures. What will the end be? Will it be a collision with a gargantuan galactic asteroid causing a colossal fire? Will it be a thermonuclear war? Will the ozone layer entirely deplete? What about the dreaded threat of global warming… NO one really knows!

Many others have also made predictions before and they have come and gone! We are still here! Despite all the various hypothetical possibilities no one knows when that time will be! But at some point the end will come. HOW DO WE KNOW THIS? because; GOD HAS SAID THIS IS SO! Know; this world is not our final destination, we are pilgrims passing through. John the Apostle announces and predicts Jesus’ return to the earth! He really gives us all some things to think about. Are you a believer? Really? How much time do you spend in the Word! Revelation is a good place for each of us to take time for personal private inventory. What if the Lord where to return today? What would you do or say? Is your house in order? Think about it; are you really ready to meet the Lord face to face?

WE CAN ALWAYS & FOREVER TRUST GOD & HIS WORD!

The Bible profoundly points to all the signs that will take place. At some point, time on this side of heaven, as we know it will be no more. Jesus’ second coming will be short and quick! This is what the Word says; “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, not the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill: one will be taken the other left.

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this; if the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him.” Matthew 24.

Regardless of what anyone says they cannot predict the end of time. Let if fall on a deaf ear. We are told to live each day as though the Lord was to return. Each one of us should really examine our lives to see if we are living in accordance with the Lord and daily applying His principles. I am sure we could all make some improvements. That is why the Lord still has us on this side of Heaven. We are mere bodies of breathing walking shaped formed dust. As long as we have breath in our bodies there is room for spiritual growth. Instead today numerous supposed believers look to the world and its influences for direction instead, and let it define for them what is right! They allow the ways of the world to influence their life and often dictate their lifestyle. In some case their worship and praise… Too many have allowed the world to shape and mold their lives, homes, careers as well as a lot of our worship services to the Lord! LORD HELP US!!!

Why GOD brought about the flood?

Let’s step back again and observe the events surrounding the first time the world was destroyed. As the population increased men laid aside God’s principles and did what they felt was right. “Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. He had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth. Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on the earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, I am going to put an end to all the people, for the earth is full of violence because of them. I am going to surely destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself and ark of cypress wood… Noah did everything the Lord commanded” Genesis 6.

Notice when Noah was building the ark it had never ever rained! During this time he was building the ark he was ridiculed and isolated all because; his dedication to the ways of the Lord. Because of his adherence to be obedient to the Lord Noah was thought to be quite strange? Imagine this, there were millions of people on the earth at the time. They did not really believe that the end was coming? Well it came. Yet, only Noah and His family actually survived the flood!

Each day prepare Your home to be an “Ark of Safety! ” Welcome the presence of the LORD within your home daily.

We do know the next time the end comes, it will not be another flood to end it all. We do not know what will happen or what king of plague or pestilence we will experience… Do you know hat the rainbow means? This is what the rainbow symbolizes to the believer committed to God’s Word“Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbows appear in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.” Genesis 9.

THE RAINBOW IS A SIGN OF GOD’S PROMISE!

If you are one of those who do not believe in satan or hell or his deception now is the time to read the Word of God. Regardless as to what some say in society; It is important to acknowledge that the rainbow is a sign to God’s people about HIS PROMISE to never again destroy the earth with a flood. I assure you; It has absolutely nothing to do with your sexual preference…

Do not be deceived. It is important to know from a Biblical perspective the rainbow has absolutely nothing to do with same sex relationships. God does not approve of any sexual infidelities! Adultery, fornication, incest as well as any and all types of sexual abuse all go against His principles… GOD SAYS; REPENT!!! God does sanction and bless marriage between a Man and a Woman. This is called; “HOLY MATRIMONY!” “FOR THIS RESON A MAN WILL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE UNITED TO HIS WIFE, AND THEY SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH, THE MAN AND THE WOMAN WHERE NAKED AND NOT ASHAMED…” Genesis 2 This is not about hate but about teaching, preaching and proclaiming the WORD of GOD! I suggest spending some time in the Word. I assure you; “Draw nigh to GOD and HE will draw nigh to you” GOD can deliver you from any sin and place you upon “The Narrow Path” that leads to HIM! God is quite clear about this. Please do not wait like those who drowned in the time of Noah because they did not believe it was going to rain and a flood was coming. It really happened!

GOD HAS GIVEN US SPIRITUAL AND MORAL BOUNDARIES

If you are truly saved you have no need to worry. But you still need to continue to draw closer to our Lord daily. God has given us some spiritual and moral boundaries to keep us safe! If you are not saved, do you want to be saved? Do you want your children saved? Your friends, neighbors & co workers? Take some time and read the Word for yourself. What is a few moments each day in comparison to an eternity of torment? For hell, is real!

Accept Christ Jesus as Lord & Savior into your heart today! Confess Your sins. Get in the world and seek out those who are sound, dedicated and strong in the FAITH! Jesus came to save us from sin reigning within our lives. He came to take back what satan stole; he continues to deceive many. Christ Jesus came that we might have and abundant life in everyway! Eternal life is a precious gift that can only come from Him. He is the only doorway to heaven there is no other way!

Hades is another name for hell in the Greek it is a place for the underworld. It is the place for the dead or again sheol. Jesus has power over the grave as well as the power to forgive sins. When he arose from the dead; He went down in the earth and released those who were being held captive. GOD is the Creator & Sustainer of life. Since He made life He can surely restore it. He raised his close friend Lazarus from the grave after being dead for four days! He also gave life back to many others… Please listen attentively with your spiritual ears. Witness the Power and Love of Jesus firsthand for yourself as told in HIS WORD:

“When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw Him, she fell at His feet and said, Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” When Jesus saw her weeping and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, He was deeply moved in Spirit and troubled. Where have you laid him, He asked. “Come and see, Lord, they replied. Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, “See how He loved him!”

But some of them said, “Could not He who opened the eyes of the blind man kept this man from dying? Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave and a stone laid across the entrance. “Take away the stone, He said. “But Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been here for four days.” Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if I believed, you would see the GLORY of GOD?”

So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here. That they may believe that you sent me.” When He said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped in strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” John 11.

CHRIST JESUS RETURN IS IMMEMINENT

Knowing that the Lord’s return is imminent and unexpected we should daily live in a continuing preparation mode. Seeking Him above all else! Be mindful of what and who attempts to attach themselves to You. God knows our hearts, thoughts, actions and desires. God knows who is pretending and who is not! In the end He will separate the wheat from the tares and His sheep from the goats. In His time, He will reveal the wolves in sheep clothing.

Jesus is coming back! Know this for sure… We can always have hope knowing that we belong to the Lord! In the meantime “be as wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove.” Whenever we transition or at what point we leave earth we who truly believe live eternally with Him in Heaven! So get ready to soar with the Lord!!! He can help you rise above the things that come to hinder and oppress us. You can be confident of this when you have truly & sincerely accepted Christ Jesus as Lord into your heart through FAITH as your personal Savior we will live with Him through Eternity!

Like it or not there will also be eternal punishment in the lake of fire which is hell or Gehenna. This is where those who refuse to accept Jesus Christ and repent will spend eternity! The bible talks about sheol meaning the place of the dead “The grave snatches those who have sinned.” Job 24. It is named after a valley in Hinnom which is near Jerusalem. Here children were sacrificed by pagans in the fire to idol gods. II Kings 23. Abortion is a modern form of sacrificing babies! It is sad but true; Sad yet; Many children today are still sacrificed via abortionHell has an eternal fire prepared for satan and his imps or fallen angel. It is the final place of torment for the wicked. Revelation 20. If you are one of those who do not believe in satan or hell now is the time to read the Word of God! Do not wait like those who drowned in the time of Noah because they did not believe it was going to rain.

REPENT!!!

If you have ever doubted the power of the Lord and His compassion and His power over life and death… Doubt no more! This is an extraordinary astonishing miracle. The Word of God is full of marvelous miracles, practical wisdom and instructions for life and exuberant living. Jesus came and fulfilled His purpose on earth. The religious leaders sought to undermine His pure intentions. Because of this miracle even more people flocked to Jesus. They were intimidated even more so. Jesus exposed them for what they really were. Jesus never intended that we live rigid legalistic unhappy lives. He came to set us all free to live for HIM everyday!

However rather than repent and accept Jesus the religious leaders of ole instead elected to secretly plot against Him. They even used one of his very own disciples, to betray Him which resulted in Him being crucified. Praise be to GOD, from this He himself emerged victoriously as well! “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; He has risen! Remember how He told you, while He was still with you in Galilee: The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again..!” Luke 24.


JESUS rose with ALL POWER and has POWER over death and the grave! Know this; “It is better to obey GOD rather than man!” It is only in the Lord you can discover True Security & Significance!

WE ALL NEED JESUS CHRIST as OUR SAVIOR and LORD!

In order to be saved from sin reigning in our lives. It is so very important to remember He is the only Door to Heaven. There is NO Other way! God is loving, generous, kind and merciful and so much more… He is also a God of wrath. But know this; There is no going to Heaven without believing in HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. Jesus purpose on earth was to live a sinless life in the flesh, overcome sin & death and show others the Way to Salvation.

CHRIST JESUS earthly mission has been fulfilled! It is now our purpose in life is to embrace and live by God’s principles and show others the Way to Salvation through Jesus Christ! “HE IS the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE!” We have learned that Genesis records the authentic beginning of the Creation history of the Bible. The Bible starts in Paradise and it ends in Paradise! Revelation records the end; starting with a new glorious beginning in the magnificent Holy City, New Jerusalem!

Revelation describes the exquisite brilliant bravura Holy City that has twelve larger than life gates that are each made of one marvelous extraordinary ostentatious pearl. John describes the extravagant beauty to behold in New Jerusalem. The River of the Water of Life, is as clear as crystal and it flows from the throne of GOD and HIS LAMB JESUS CHRIST down the center of the Great Street of the Holy City. Here are brilliant streets that miraculously are made of translucent gold. (Read Revelation 21 for more details)

There is a total absence of any evil in the Holy City! There is no Temple because here the glorious Glory of God resides in our perfected Heavenly home. There is no more night, or need for the sun or moon for the LORD will radiate HIS marvelous Light! In HIM is NO darkness. Here in Heaven our Heavenly Father & His Son will rain through Eternity.

ALMIGHTY GOD IS SOVEREIGN HE IS TRULY OMNIPOTENT

No matter what happens on earth; God is Sovereign! We who believe have a marvelous astounding breathtaking eternal home awaiting at the appointed time! It is so much more, far beyond what our limited finite minds can ever imagine. Only God knows when that time will be! Let’s get busy living each day for the Lord! Revelation ends saying; “And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this book. He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon” AMEN! Come Lord Jesus. The grace of God be with HIS people. Amen!”

JESUS CHRIST second coming is sure and imminent it will be swift and sudden!!! Revelation is a Valid ProphecyCHRIST JESUS is the ALPHA and the OMEGA. HE IS the Beginning and the End. HE is KING of Kings. HE is LORD of Lords. HE is the MOST HIGH GOD! HE is the GREAT “I AM!” Forever & ever through eternity; Live Everyday; “To GOD Be The GLORY!”

As the world grows colder to the truth of God’s Word know it is on a “slippery slope.” Many of the ways of the world have also nested themselves in the midst of many places of worship… Allow God His place within your life. He will meet you right where you are and take you where you need to be as you learn to trust HIM… This is why it is so very important for you to know God’s Word for yourself. Therefore, spend time with God in His Word. He can bring peace to your life… Please be aware, be sober, be alert and see what is happening all around us. Know we are living in a spiritual war zone.

There is always hope in the Lord. God says: “REPENT!!!

HEAVEN IS GOD’S THRONE & The Earth Is HIS Footstool!”

Pray wherever & whenever you are out and about in the world, at work or at home. And yes also during worship turn your mind towards the Lord. Whenever and wherever you worship know this; “GOD IS A SPIRIT AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH!” John 4 Commit daily to worship the Lord in Spirit & in Truth. Always seek the will & way of the Lord above all. Above all follow JESUS!

“BE GOD’S CHURCH EVERYDAY & EVERYWHERE!”

“PRAY WITHOUT CEASING…” I Thessalonians 5 Give thanks to God throughout your day. And take praise breaks all throughout your day. Recharge your soul and enjoy having your own personal worship. It can be refreshing. Invite the presence of the Lord all around you as well as in your home. Daily embrace God’s Word. For He will place it within your heart. Stay adorned daily in the spiritual armor. See Ephesians 6

“DRAW NIGH TO GOD AND HE WILL DRAW NIGH TO YOU.” Matthew 15

GOD CAN WHEN NO ONE ELSE CAN

God is sovereign He is the Giver and sustainer of life. Everything that you will ever need you can discover in Him. In the Lord you can become whole.

Our Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent GOD

~ JESUS! JESUS!! JESUS!!! ~


WE SERVE AN OMNIPRESENT, OMNISCIENT, OMNIPOTENT GOD!
GOD IS OUR CREATOR & MAKER. THE EARTH IS HIS FOOTSTOOL. HIS THRONE IS HEAVEN. AND OUR BODIES ARE HIS TEMPLE WHERE HIS HOLY SPIRIT/HIS COMFORTER RESIDES. WE HIS PEOPLE ARE HIS CHURCH!

 

Who is CHRIST JESUS? “in HIM we have redemption through HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS of sins.

Who is the image of the invisible GOD, the first-born of every creature. For by HIM all things were created that are in Heaven, and that are in the earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions, or principalities or powers ALL things were created by Him and for HIM.

And HE is before all things and by Him all things consist. and He is the Head of the Body, The CHURCH, who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that in all things HE might have the pre-eminence.” Colossians 1

 

Earth is GOD’S Footstool

This is what the LORD says about HIS FOOTSTOOL

“Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?” Isaiah 66

Did you know GOD is even greater than the heavens. Everything was spoken into existence through HIS Living Word Christ Jesus!

Remember this earth where we live is the Lord’s footstool!

Yes, we can gather together in the many places of worship. It is truly wonderful to want to worship & praise the Lord!  Do welcome the presence of GOD all around you. Yes do, congregate together to worship, pray & praise the Lord. Make sure wherever you assemble is safe… But know that this is not where GOD lives. We who are believers are to live a life of worship. Know that HIS HOLY SPIRIT is present everywhere. There is nowhere that GOD is not. When you really believe this you will live, be and think differently. As a matter of fact GOD has created us to daily worship HIM. Worship continues in Heaven.

 

“AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!”

There is much that has crept in amidst GOD’S CHURCH that is NOT of HIM! “The WHEAT AND the tares are growing together.” MATTHEW 13  PRAY FOR DISCERNMENT!

 

KNOW GOD lives within the Hearts of HIS PEOPLE who are HIS CHURCH!

 

 

God is infinite and immeasurable

It is important to know that God is beyond infinite! He is so much greater than our little finite minds can ever totally conceive. Whatever your perception of GOD is; He is so much greater. We cannot minimalize God or reduce Him to our human comprehension. But we can get a better understanding of who He is through His Word!

 

GOD is omnipresent and HE cannot be restricted to any one place. No one can contain GOD! For He is absolutely illimitable and without boundaries. He is extensively inconceivable and immeasurable.

 

 

Heaven is HIS Throne

This is what the LORD says about HIS THRONE:

“The LORD is in HIS Holy Temple, the LORD’S throne is in Heaven: HIS eyes behold, HIS eyelids, try the children of men/women. Psalm 11

GOD’S THRONE IS HEAVEN!

GOD is incorporeal. HE is not human flesh. HE IS A SPIRIT! His throne is not akin to a big literal chair as we deem fit for royalty. The throne represents God’s supreme sovereignty. Here is where HIS Holy Power and Authority are divinely evident. Heaven itself is the LORD’S THRONE.

 

“But I say to you, Swear not at all neither by Heaven; for it is the LORD’S throne; Nor by earth; for it is HIS footstool; neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the Great King… “Matthew 5

“…Behold I stand at the door and knock. if any man/woman hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him/her, and will sup with him/her, And he/she with Me. To him/her that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with MY FATHER in HIS THRONE. He/She that hath an ear, let him/her hear what the SPIRIT SAITH UNTO THE CHURCHES.” Revelation 3

GOD is always available. You just have to be willing to seek HIM!

 

Christ Jesus is the Son of God

CHRIST JESUS IS GOD THE FATHER, ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. He came to earth from HEAVEN: and was born of the Virgin Mary within a body of sinless flesh. HE IS THE LIVING WORD OF GOD. “IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD. THE SAME WAS IN THE BEGINNING WITH GOD. ALL THINGS WERE MADE BY HIM; AND WITHOUT HIM WAS NOT ANYTHING MADE THAT WAS MADE…” John 1

 

CHRIST JESUS overcame sin in the flesh for us. To demonstrate His glorious Love and Power to the powers and principalities that be. To His Church as well as this world. He lived a sinless life. Yet, He was unjustly disrespected, mistreated and persecuted. By those He came to help! Then He was mercilessly beaten, crucified and died upon the cross and was buried… Yet, He arose from the grave with ALL POWER and ascended into Heaven in His glorified body. He is now in Heaven upon His throne. As believers, His Holy Spirit resides within our hearts.

 

Our Body is HIS Temple

This is what the LORD says about our bodies as Temples

“Know ye that ye are the Temple of GOD, and that the SPIRIT of GOD dwelleth in you. If any man/woman defile the Temple of GOD, him/ her shall GOD destroy, for the Temple of GOD is Holy, which temple ye are…” I Corinthians 3

It is important to know that if you are a believer and have truly accepted Christ Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Savior; Your body is a Temple. Therefore it behooves you to think about this on a deeper level. God wants to be a part of every area of our lives. But it is your choice?

 

“And what agreement hath the Temple of God with idols? for ye are the Temple of the Living GOD; as God has said, I WILL DWELL IN THEM, AND WALK IN THEM AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. Wherefore, COME OUT, FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE YE SEPARATE, saith the LORD AND TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN THING; AND I WILL RECEIVE YOU, AND BE A FATHER UNTO YOU, AND YE SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS, saith the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.” II Corinthians 6

 

We live in the world but not forever

Yes we are in the world. But we are not to be as the world. Many of the ways of the world have nested themselves among the CHURCH of GOD. It is important to always keep in mind that we “The People of GOD” are HIS CHURCH! Not the building. There are many different places of worship all throughout the world. Some are deeper into the Word of God than others. Some are quite steeped into their denominational & non denominational doctrinal beliefs and practices. This is why it is so very important to know the WORD of GOD for yourself.

 

Earth is not our final destination. We will each live throughout eternity with GOD or without GOD! If you desire to live in Heaven it is important to know that JESUS CHRIST is the only way to Heaven. HE IS GOD’S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON… There is no other way for HE is the ONLY DOOR. He is also Manna meaning; Spiritual Bread from Heaven. He can OR will feed our mind, body & souls. But, it is your choice? He is God’s Amazing Living Word! Know today without doubt where you will live throughout eternity.

“…And Jesus said unto them , I AM the BREAD of LIFE; he that cometh to Me shall never hunger, and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst.” John 6

 

“…Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I AM the Door of the sheep. All that came ever before Me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not hear them. I AM the Door; by Me if any man/woman enter in, he/she shall be SAVED and go in and out and find pasture. John 10

 

GOD knows where everyone all over the world lives and why! There is nothing that He is not aware of past, present or future about anyone. Therefore wherever you are you can reach out to HIM. “Draw nigh to GOD and He will draw nigh to you…” James 4

 

Where is God?

GOD IS EVERYWHERE! ABOVE THE LORD THERE IS NO OTHER!

For HE is our Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent, GOD!

As long as GOD allows us to remain on HIS earth there is more to experience & learn. Each day is a day to grow closer to the Lord. To truly know Love is to know GOD for; “GOD IS LOVE!” And a part of HIS LOVE is correction… GOD’S LOVE IS ETERNAL and it lasts through ETERNITY.

“Live Out Loud The GOSPEL!”

 

The Apostle Paul gives A Message from the LORD on “MARS HILL”

Ponder and meditate upon this;

“…God made the world and all things therein, seeing that HE is LORD of Heaven and earth dwelleth not in Temples made with hands.

Neither is worshipped with mens/women’s hands, as though HE needed any thing, seeing HE giveth to all, life, and breath and all things,

And hath made of one blood all nations of Men/Women for to dwell on the face of the earth, and hath determined the times appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

That they should seek the LORD, if haply they might feel after HIM, though HE be not far from any of us!

For it is in HIM we live, and move and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also HIS-offspring… ” ACTS 1

Know who you are in the LORD!

“IF my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and PRAY, and SEEK my face, and TURN from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.”

II CHRONICLES 7

Why is it we have more denominations, more conferences, more televised and internet broadcasts, more modes of worship both traditional and non traditional. Congregations of every size. Some small, medium, large, extra large or mega style, yet so many people continue to overlook the WORD of GOD? The WORD is a Powerful Wellspring that yields Spiritual, Emotional & Physical Healing, but we must first embrace and apply it to our daily lives!

GOD is always speaking, but we must get better at listening! WE NEED TO PRAY! “

Revelation – A Valid Prophecy – 2012? Part I

revelation-a-case-study-of-a-valid-prophecy

 

JESUS IS Coming Soon! IF HE Came Today; Are You Ready?

A Valid Prophecy

The Book of Revelation is quite an interesting, intriguing narrative account of the grand finale! Bursting at the seam it encompasses a great wealth of relative, similar, prophetic symbolism that is also found in the Books of Daniel and Zechariah. It is in Revelation that John shares his many quite extraordinary, remarkable visions. John endured a lot of persecution because of his faith and belief in Jesus Christ. It is here on the rocky island of Patmos John was exiled because he would not worship the pagan image of emperor Domitian.

What is so amazing there was improvement needed in each of the churches. John writes to the churches to help get them get themselves in order. He is obedient to make known what the Lord has given him to share. He candidly and transparently writes to the Church in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Tyatira, Sardis, Philadellphia and unto Laodicea. He warns them and tells them what is to come. He tells them to take head to what he is saying.

The Apostle John was a leader of the Church in Rome. He was placed on the rocky Isle of Patmos to be put to shame. He was isolated or rather banished because of His strong belief and testimony in Christ Jesus. The irony of this is John was deeply inspired by GOD. Therefore he did not allow his physicality to hinder him from being a yielded vessel to the Lord. No doubt he learned first hand “to be in the world but not of the world” Here on Patmos the Lord gave the Apostle John phenomenal vivid picturesque 3D visions of what was to come.

Revelation is a magnificent Book of Prophecy. It was shared and disbursed to the (7) seven Churches within Asia which was a province in the ancient Roman Empire. Today we and the Church at large down through the ages have continued to benefit greatly from Revelation and its intriguing spiritual wisdom. Always keep in mind that seven is the number of completion.

The beauty of the Lord is He does sometime require that we disengage from the world. But never isolate ourselves from Him. “Draw nigh to GOD and HE will draw nigh to you!” Most writers or scribes are accustomed to spending time away in order to bring forth a message. God did not make any of us to be robots. He who in the fullness of His sovereign power allows us to choose. It is wise to spend time in the presence of the LORD! He sharpens and refines our discernment. As we grow in the grace and wisdom of the Lord we become more aware of who He is. The incredible thing about the Lord is we are never away from HIS OMNIPRESENCE.

Scores of readers shy away from reading Revelation and find some of its contents a bit disturbing. Others simply find it weird and even a bit irrational. However, when one looks closer through a spiritual lens you will discover that John truly and unselfishly intended to enlighten, inspire hope and encouragement in the midst of his own personal predicament. Revelation contains valid prophecy and a plethora of spiritual blessings.

The (7) Seven Churches

The person of Jesus Christ, His divine nature and character are transparently revealed in Revelation. Revelation comes from the Greek word apokalypsis, it means the unveiling of something that was previously unrevealed. The Apostle John saw amazing enlightening visions that he was instructed to write down while exiled to the Island of Patmos. He was directed by the Lord to send letters to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea they were within the province of Asia. Within these seven cities the Church had been established. Remember John had been exiled to Patmos for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Revelation has been described as one of the most complicated, intimidating Books in the Bible. One might pose the question; “Well if it is so complicated then why bother at all to read Revelation?” First and foremost because it is the inspired Word of God. John gives us a profound reason to persevere through its contents. One must certainly solicit the aid and assistance of the Holy Spirit to open your spiritual ears for any lucid clarity. John himself really answers that question earlier on. He tells us that “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take it to heart what is written in it, because the time is near…”

The Apostle John astutely reinforces the fact that Jesus Christ is Lord! That He lived here on earth as the King of King adtheAlmighty Ruler, of the kings of the earth and is most definitely coming back again!

CHRIST JESUS: THE WORD IN SINLESS FLESH

Here in Revelation we are reminded that Jesus created all things and all things are subject to Him. This was also confirmed in Colossians 1 & John 1. This further helps one to understand why Jesus humbled Himself, and actually became the “Word in Sinless Flesh.” It was out of obedience to the will of the Father that JESUS came to earth from Heaven. He Lived a disciplined sinless life and overcame sin in the flesh. He was heinously beaten, persecuted and slandered. He was crucified upon the cross, died, then arose gloriously with all power. CHRIST JESUS BECAME THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE and died for the sins of the world! Here we learn the immense significance of His amazing position as the “Lamb of God.” He once and for all gave His life. For those who believe this is the GOSPEL the “GOOD NEWS!” Just by knowing who we are in Him helps us to live or can help us to live victoriously as John did despite his situation and what was happening in the world!

Essentially our purpose for life and living is to discover GOD as our CREATOR and MAKER. To seek Him above everything else. We as believers belong to GOD. Therefore, we must accept CHRIST JESUS into our hearts as our LORD & SAVIOR! For we who are believers have been purchased with His Blood. GOD bestows upon us the precious “GIFT” of HIS HOLY SPIRIT; HIS COMFORTER TO LEAD US to ALL TRUTH! We must always keep in mind that The CHURCH belongs to HIM. CHRIST JESUS IS THE HEAD OF HIS CHURCH & HIS CHURCH IS HIS BRIDE!

Revelation contains an affluent wealth of prophetic visions that stretches one’s imagination to think far beyond the surface. To ponder and launch out into the deep where one’s faith or lack thereof becomes apparent. John goes on to describe the events on a scroll to be sent to the seven (7) cities where the Church was established. The seven (7) Spirits are the eyes of God which are spiritual facets of God’s Holy Spirit. The seven (7) gold lampstands represent the Church. To each of them he has some very specific and interesting comments. Take some time and see where your congregation of choice is? “He who has an ear, let Him hear what the Spirit says to the Church.”

It is important today in this 21st century to be mindful that the scriptures are being fulfilled. GOD’S WORD IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! God wants us to have an intimate daily personal relationship with Him. He is the Most High God above Him is no other! It is important to know the Lord’s Word for yourself. This way you “will no longer be infants tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming…” as expressed in Ephesians 4.

Ongoing Spiritual Warfare

It is here in Revelation that we are reminded of the ongoing spiritual warfare that was and has continued to go on within and against God’s Church. Keep in mind when Revelation was written the many large, small, storefront and or mega buildings where the Church comes together for worship did not exist. We are to worship God daily. Yes we can come together to worship. With two, three, a few, many or a multitude… We the people are GOD’S CHURCH not the buildings we gather together in. When CHRIST returns we will be “CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM in the CLOUDS to MEET THE LORD in the AIR. SO SHALL WE FOREVER BE WITH HIM ” I Thessalonians 4

We live within a Spiritual warzone. The war between good and evil continues to divide God’s Church. This is again why it is so very important to have an intimate personal relationship with the Lord and know His Word. Revelation does not easily open its contents for one to readily embrace and understand. One must seek and call upon the Holy Spirit to keep you attentive. To continue through the many passages that requires a deep concentration and steadfastness through the many tumultuous interludes. This is also why it is so very important to worship the LORD “in SPIRIT and in TRUTH” whenever or wherever you worship; GOD indeed, is always truly worthy of our sincere praise!

All in all Revelation major overtones reassures us that our HOPE and TRUST must be in the Lord. John clearly reminds us that GOD alone, gave His only Begotten Son to redeem us from the clutches of sin and death and insure our access to eternal life!

Seven (7) is the Number of Completion

It is through Adam & Eve that sin and death entered our existence. During one’s mesmerizing safaric enlightening journey through Revelation there are many turns and unexpected surprises. Vivid, veracious scenes depicting the seven (7) seals, seven (7) trumpets, scrolls, exotic creatures, dragons and angels, seven (7) plagues and seven (7) bowls of God’s wrath, and a wondrous plethora of rare precious gemstones and so much more… Here in Revelation there is also a wonderful vision magnificently illustrating the joy and honor for being invited to the great wedding supper.

SEVEN (7) is the number of COMPLETION! It is within the LORD we can become complete. Everything we will ever need for life, daily living & eternal life we can discover in Him. The KING of Kings and the LORD of Lords emerges and gives us a marvelous glimpse of what Heaven is like. Always keep in mind; It is through Jesus Christ’s love for us, His birth, sinless life, crucifixion, death and resurrection that we have been redeemed and given the gift of eternal life. Within the power of His Glorious Resurrection is our Eternal Hope!

What has been happening within our country and throughout this world…

Yes, our country had a dreadful economic crisis, and property values plummeted and are now slowly rising. Extreme climatic weather conditions worldwide have been occurring. A multiplicity of extreme devastating forest fires persist. And yes, we are also experiencing the collateral damage of this Pandemic Coronavirus all over the world… Millions have been globally impacted. Hundreds of thousands have lost their lives and many have despairingly suffered. Things on the earth will never be quite as they were. As long as there are human beings on earth we can expect something…

In His time the Lord will restore whatever has been unjustly taken from us. God always has something better in store. He will also strengthen and solidify your trust in Him as we embrace and apply His Word to our daily lives… With the Lord nothing is ever really lost it is often shifted to another form or location or held in abeyance momentarily. Know that God never has a recession in Heaven or earth. The earth and everything in it is His! He so graciously allows us here on earth to momentarily partake in His many blessings. Everything really does belongs to Him!


There is much spiritual warfare going on to undermine the principles of God. Look all around and see the things that have happened contrary to His Word! The Supreme Court even voted against the WORD of GOD in favor of “same sex unions.”


Yes there has been is a plethora of foreign and domestic terrorism. There is also a resurgence of racial discrimination, systemic racism, racial profiling, violation of privacy as well as escalating of the many varied and random senseless shootings…

Yes, let us be ever mindful of the earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, fires flooding, mudslides, rain, sleet, snow, fierce winds, storms, tsunamis and various horrendous extreme climatic weather conditions. The massive destructive heinous fires as well. Many lives, homes, businesses, possessions and sanctuaries have been lost. Pray for those who are going through and for those who continue to experience the repercussions of the aftermath from all of the various storms. In times like these we need a Savior.

We must learn to keep our focus upon the Lord!


Let us not overlook the scandalous political forum that persists. It is clear that the WORD of GOD is being fulfilled for some of everything is going on. Pandora’s Box has lost its lid.

All of this serves to confirm the authenticity of God’s Word! There is yet more to come.

It is so very important to spend some time daily in the Word of God! Pray for discernment so you can better discern what time it is. God has forewarned is to live each day as though the Lord were going to return.

The Angel in REVELATION speaks candidly to the Churches

In Revelation an angel of the Lord reminds us that “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord the God of the spirits and prophets, sent an angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.” God knows us from the inside out through and through. He knows the why, who what, and why not. You may not want to think about it but time is of the essence. Our entire lives are an open book to the Lord this is inclusive of everyone all over this entire universe!

It is important that we keep in mind that our life continues on throughout eternity. It is important that you know without doubt for sure where you will spend eternity! This is not based upon what someone says, thinks or does not say about you. It is based on His Word and knowing without a doubt that it is to Him you belong. “It is in Him we move and live and have our being.”

Hear what His Spirit has to say “BLESSED are those who wash their robes, that they may go through the gates of the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehoods…”

Although Revelation may be difficult to comprehend at times, I want to encourage you to read on prayerfully. Remember the Word of God is like no other. It is “quick (alive) and powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword…” Since it is so full of vibrant life, each time you take time to read it and glean it’s wisdom your spiritual ears and eyes are opened just that much more! You can learn something new each time. And yes most definitely, Revelation always keep in mind is a valid prophecy

If you have truly accepted Jesus Christ into your heart you have been granted the “GIFT” of Eternal Life in Heaven. God is your Father & Creator! But, have you really given some serious thought to what eternity will be like? Are you really living today to prepare to live with the Lord for eternity? Imagine The Word tells us that there will be no more, death, pain or sorrow! “GOD will wipe every tear from their eyes; AND THERE WILL BE NO MORE death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there b an more pain. for the former things are passed away!” Revelation 21 For there will be ongoing praising & rejoicing...

It is important to realize when you truly are living for the Lord whatever you are going through its not over for you. It’s just temporary. REPENT! Have FAITH in GOD! In the end “WE WIN” GOD always has the last WORD! “These are the words of HIM who is HOLY and TRUE, who holds the KEY of DAVID, What HE opens NO ONE can shut, and what HE shuts NO ONE can open!”

GENESIS to REVELATION

The Bible starts with a marvelous story of Creation. Genesis records the Beginning. Revelation records the End. It concludes with the creation of a new heaven and earth in Revelation. Those who overcome through Jesus Christ will “stand firm in the end.” (evil will not be able to mimic itself as good and continue to deceive many…) We don’t know the day nor the hour but JESUS is coming soon!!! We can draw nigh to GOD everyday. For HE will draw nigh to you. We can also rest assured that CHRIST JESUS is coming back for those who have not already transitioned and gone on to Heaven! Yes; know there will be some who do not believe who will be “left behind.” YOU have a choice! Life is but a vapor. Your day of transitioning to the Lord can come any day… So, start preparing and living NOW EVERYDAY as though you really are expecting CHRIST JESUS to return TODAY!

The Promises of GOD will be fulfilled! HIS WORD will not return void.

In this world where disobedience, mistreatment, persecution, immorality, evil, lying, SPIRITUAL WARFARE and deception continue to rise and escalate… CHRIST JESUS OUR SAVIOR tells us to endure by FAITHTRUST HIM! In spite of how things appear. He really does ultimately have ALL things and everyone under His control! His message of Love, Repentance, Faith and Salvation are extended to ALL!

“THANK YOU HALLLELLLUJAH!”

HE IS The GOOD SHEPHERD! HE IS The “BRIGHT and MORNING STAR!” HE IS The GREAT; “I AM” and above HIM is no other! HE IS The ALPHA and The OMEGA THE BEGINNING AND THE END! THE FIRST & THE LAST! HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY! We CAN ALWAYS have HOPE and TRUST in THE LORD & HIS WORD! Therefore, LIVE EVERYDAY; “TO GOD BE THE GLORY!” & FOREVER BLESS HIS HOLY NAME!!!

Moving To Higher Ground Part 1

 

What do you do when you know that you have earnestly and sincerely tried to help someone? When they have come to you to help them when nobody else would?  When you have gone out on faith and taken a risk to support them.  Well you now know that  they did not value keeping their commitment.  In turn you have been slandered, lied on, cheated, talked about and mistreated.  Well you have compassion for them. You realize they really do not “fear God.” 

 

When my helping is not helping. I’m not helping! 

This is in no way means helping by being a “busybody” in the affairs of others. Time is precious and it is “time out” for games. Not everyone believes in being responsible or keeping their commitments.  It is when you are approached with what appears to be sincerity you consider helping? This is  actually when you help someone who really wants to help themselves to you. Now it appears you were not responsible because things did not turn out as they hoped despite the minimal effort they put forth.  

 

It has been a bit disheartening to know what great lengths that others will go to and band together, just in order to discredit you.  But what they do not realize is they cannot discredit you in the eyes of God.  Somewhere down the road they will see that they missed the opportunity. What do you do?  You Praise God daily for His Omnsicience.   You now better understand what not to do.  And yes, praise be to God you become the wiser for it.  You go to “Higher Ground,” and give them and it to the Lord.

 

Plant Your Feet on Higher Ground

They will sink even lower to convince others of something that is simply not true. They will even dredge up false witnesses, really, all because you would not continue to succumb to their desires. Meaning you would not  allow them to use you. Your good intentions have now been undermined and misconstrued. What do you do? You certainly do not have a pity party.  In fact you  can be thankful because you have become wiser realizing that your discernment has been sharpened.  Now you plant your feet on “Higher Ground” and again, you simply take it to the Lord!

 

 

Jesus knows just how you feel. Despite everything they have done, did you know that you have really gained a lot?  It really does not matter how it makes you look a bit gullible. You know that the Lord knows better. Your faith and trust in Him has deepened and you are steadily moving towards “Higher Ground.”

 

 

The truth is; There are those who have an interesting perspective about what it means being Christians. I realize for some it means to attend worship, have an emotionally charged good time,  get involved in  all the activities going on, fellowship and hang out.   They can also perform very well and get their shout on.  And yes when they leave; “Church was Good!”  After all this is what has been taught to many…  But not really want to  make an effort to go deep into the Word and daily embrace the principles of GOD.   

 

 

 

Well, after all we are “Saved by Grace!”  So you really cannot expect them to want to really get to know the Lord on a personal level. 

 

 

I have learned it is wise to be very selective.  When you help others do not expect them to do the same for you.  When you are there for them the Lord knows. It is  the Lord that will bless you when you are sincere no matter how things  turns out.  Keep in mind  Christ Jesus is our Best Witness. Think about it?  By the wa,  where we all those people that Jesus helped when they were crying; “Crucify Him!”

 

The point is;

To some degree you must just grin and bear it. You must hold on to the fact that if the truth would really be told you know that they would not know how to tell it. There is a saying that “The truth can go all around the world. But a lie just has to walk across the street.” There is something so seductive about lies that some people will believe anything but the truth. But really they have been deceived. I am sure you have heard the old adage, “give them and inch and they will take a mile.” There is so much spiritual warfare on the horizon. You must learn to guard your heart. Stay alert at all times. Know the Lord’s Word for yourself so you will not be so easily swayed just by how things appear.

 

Learn to be content in the Lord

There is much contentment knowing God knows the Truth! God’s Word is so exhilarating! Remember what it also says about itching ears? It says; “For the time will come when Men/Women will not put up with sound doctrine, Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry…” Timothy 4:3-5. That time is now! Sometimes standing up for what is right means to simply sit down. 

 

Daily worship, thank  and Praise the Lord.  God wants us to live a life of praise. For everyday is a precious “GIFT” from Him.  ABBA FATHER,  “THANK YOU HALLLLELLLUJAH!!!”

 

When I read the writings of Paul I can identify with many of the things that he encountered. Paul was even bitten by a snake. Yet, Paul managed to remain faithful despite the things that were going on about Him. He knew that they distorted his every move. Yet he continued to live for the Lord. He was not looking for them to support Him he knew that the Lord did.

 

Be thankful you know God’s Word will not return void.  You do not have to force God’s Word upon anyone. 

 

Paul was persecuted for preaching the Gospel. Paul’s methods were unorthodox yet he was quite creative, steadfast and unmovable abounding in his work for the Lord. He is an excellent example of what to do when there is much chaos about you. One must learn to keep your focus upon the Lord. Learn to bridle your tongue in the process. James tells us that this will also bring about much discipline. Commence to steadily move towards ”Higher Ground.”  

 

We daily rise to serve; THE GREAT  I “AM”

 

We live in a Spiritual War Zone

We live in the 21st century where some of everything is going on. Yet, there is nothing new under the sun. Rest assured that the scriptures are being fulfilled. We are living in a Spiritual Warzone  In this technological advanced age you can literally go all over the world today without even leaving your seat.

 

You can virtually communicate with both Christians and non Christians, from a multiplicity of colors, and cultures within the various non denominations, denominations, and independents, all over the world. God is so awesome! He truly is Omnipresent! He has given us so many examples of who He is and what He is all about. “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it..”

 

God does not change! His principles remain the same. You can invite Jesus into your heart wherever you are! Do you know that you can only come to the Lord unless He draws you anyway? “Jesus is the way the Truth and the life.” He really does set you free! Free to daily live for Him. Just know that there will always be those who will throw rocks and hide their hands. But don’t worry you know who made the hands. Nothing gets by God.

 

Traditional Rudimentary Disciplines and Doctrines.

As each day passes I realize that I have somewhat become disenchanted with some of the “stuff on the Church scene.” I have also come across many who share my sentiments. There is no question whether they love the Lord! Dedicated without question to God & ministry. But simply have opted out, not to get involved in the man/woman induced messiness. Although, I have submitted somewhat to its timely ordinances, traditional rudimentary disciplines and doctrines, I have gradually weaned away from its constraints that quench my spirit. I openly admit that at times  I have over the years gradually learned to comfortably sometimes take somewhat of a back seat position on occassions within the arena. But live life daily growing in God’s marvelous Grace.

 

Coliseum in Rome

I can thankfully and vividly recall what it felt like actually standing with my husband/Pastor and our group in the Coliseum in Rome Italy where they physically killed the Christians for sport. That memory is forever etched in my soul. (Here they simply try and murder you with their tongue.)  But the great thing about the Lord it does not work in the spiritual arena.  God knows  For this  I thank & praise God;  I fear no Man/Woman.  Hallelujah anyhow! 

 

When it comes to the expected systematic functions from a birds eye view at times I do take a back seat.  But from a shore line perspective I have launched into deep waters, knowing that my deeply planted roots in His Word will sustain me till I see the Lord face to face…

 

True Ministry is never for show or to entertain others.  It is to be used by the Lord as His willing vessel.  I know that I can praise Him, preach, teach, proclaim and live out loud the Gospel  anywhere at anytime.   It is God I/we daily live to please. I cannot fully express in words my thankfulness to the Lord for all that He has done and has allowed us to see, do and experience.  I know God will never forsake us. I am eternally grateful for His omnipresence wherever we are or go.   I know that “the earth is His and the fullness thereof…” It is so important to know the Word of God for yourself. On a personal level, I find my love for the Lord’s abiding presence in my daily life is ever increasing.

What Does It Mean to Love? Part 1

What does it mean to love someone? Does it mean you give them everything they want? Does it mean letting someone run over you? Does it mean you tell them what they want to hear? Does it mean you never make them angry? Does love ever end?

Webster defines love in this way; strong affection for another based on kinship ties.

Example: maternal love for a child. Attraction based on sexual desire. Admiration or benevolence. Warm attachment, enthusiasm, or devotion. A beloved person: Darling. Brotherly concern for others. To hold dear. To feel a lover’s passion, devotion, or tenderness. An unselfish concern of God for man.

The scriptures tell us that “God is Love.” Tell me can you really truly love someone and not know God? Or better yet to the degree you know God; does it help you love in a profound way? According to I Corinthians 13 LOVE…….is PATIENT…….is KIND…….does not ENVY……. does not BOAST……. Is not PROUD…..is not SELFISH. Keeps no record of wrong doings…….does not DELIGHT in EVIL….but REJOICES in TRUTH. Always protects. Always TRUSTS. Always HOPES. Always PERSEVERES.

Does your definition of love encompass Biblical principles? Guess what? Well, whenever the above are not in operation it is not love. We all should seek to improve how we respond in love. Guard the Love the Lord Blesses you with!

I have found that love is a term that many people use loosely. If you listen clearly they usually base love on doing or not doing something for them. Love is not giving someone what they want. Love is not letting people run over you. Love is not telling people what they want to hear. If you love them you will speak the truth in love. Just know when you truly love people they will get angry with you sometimes! Learn to be “angry and sin not!”


I am eternally grateful that the LORD has bestowed His Love upon our lives and our marriage. I can say we genuinely love, appreciate and respect one another as husband and wife. It is not something we take for granted. We both are able to stand firm as individuals in what and who we believe in. Together we have faithfully allowed the Lord Center Place within our marriage. We are thankful for His Holy Spirit His Comforter. There is never question as to His Divine intervention in bringing us together. This was confirmed by our late Elder Pastor/mentor. He told us it was important to not let anything come between the “circle” of our God given love. We have held his godly wisdom dear to our hearts… It has helped us to weather the storms of life as well as the plethora of mountaintop experiences. We enjoy, genuinely love, respect, trust without doubt and care passionately for another.  This is something our children can also attest to.

 

I am most thankful for God given coping skills. There is a Joy and an unexplainable Peace that is present even in the midst of sickness, sorrow, contention or spiritual warfare. The HOLY SPIRIT is a wonderful  SPIRITUAL COUNSELOR! GOD’S TRUTH is POWERFUL. It will not allow you to freely move in denial but rather seek TRUTH. (ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ANYWHERE IS HIDDEN TO THE LORD) A lie will keep you in bondage. There is no place in truth for delusional illusions to persists. I/we Thank the LORD for “Sound Minds!” And an undoubtable constant awareness of GOD’S OMNIPRESENCE everywhere you are. Always seek the TRUTH above all else… I fully realize without the Lord I am nothing but walking breathing shaped formed dust. Yet in Him I am confident knowing that within me His Holy Spirit resides.

 

As we submit to the “WILL & WAY” of the LORD HIS HOLY SPIRIT leads us to ALL TRUTH!

It is important to readily strive to resolve conflict. It only serves to limit your own “Walking in the Spirit!”  Feelings need to be validated. Discipline needs to be embraced when responding or not responding. Confrontation exercised from the perspective; “this is how you feel” Be willing to “REPENT” whenever in error. Choose freely the path of spiritual growth Move forward allowing the Lord to build your character. Don’t let life make you bitter always strive to “BECOME BETTER!” Life is so very precious and you do not want to spend the majority of your marriage and your relationships in “much ado!” You get stronger in this as you practice it.

 

 

There are those who have lived with much turmoil. Rather than seek to resolve their inner turmoil they tend to continue to create it. They will often project how they are feeling upon you. Pray for Discernment!

 

Whenever you are dealing with someone who does not really understand love they will often misinterpret your intentions. Their perspective of you will fluctuate. They base everything on their feelings. Not usually looking at what they have done or said to make the relationship go south. Yet, you suddenly are no longer the kind wonderful person that they thought you were? All of a sudden you will be perceived as being cold, uncaring, and selfish. But yesterday you were the greatest… But now since you won’t let them have something or do something you are cold. Yet they have done little or nothing. Go figure? Watch the double mindedness. They will accuse you of not really loving them when you don’t give them what they want. Know they are hurting and want you to hurt too. This is not the case in a healthy marriage or relationship.  Even when you disagree you will reinforce your love for one another. You know one another and don’t try to reduce one another to a lower standard. You can disagree respectfully. Patience is key!

 

Don’t fret! God knows your heart. Pray for them. (In a trusting relationship you don’t go here…) Stand fast. Be patient and allow the Lord to bring what is really happening to the forefront. Don’t manipulate or don’t allow anyone to manipulate you. Seek the Lord fervently for direction. In the meantime pray for them. Begin to practice healthy boundaries with them. Or you will engage in a continuous cycle of dysfunction.

 

There are many angry people who will chew you out at the drop of a hat. They have oodles of pent up unresolved anger. Cancer, high blood pressure, eating disorders, temper tantrums and depression are just a few results of stored anger and or unresolved conflict. It’s okay for them to have a tantrum. Its okay for them to vent and rant. Its okay for them to do very little. Like a spoiled child they want what they want right now. Usually at your expense.  Your are prideful yet they are justified.  You are expected to appease them.

 

 

Anger is natural. It takes discipline to combat anger. Encourage them to learn to be patient and find healthy ways to express their anger. Suppressing anger is unhealthy. Just know it takes more control to not respond than to throw a fit. Did you know you can be angry and sin not?

 

By the way you must let go of some people you love. I am not talking about letting go like in divorce. Divorce occurs because two adults are not able to work through whatever problems they are experiencing. They are not able to keep the commitment they made to each other for whatever reason. Often this is because they really didn’t think things through first. The responsibility to nurture the marriage is not mutual.

 

Many couples are unaware of the necessary tenacity for building an enduring marriage. There are also those who come to marriage to get rather than to give. They have been so hurt that they remain insulated from learning how to really love and keep the vows that they made. Sometimes they will exit selfishly living behind a wall of shame… (But that’s another column/sermonette). When I say letting go I mean putting them in hands of the Lord. Allow Him to intervene.

 

There are those who just enjoy a habitat of tension and confusion. They will often go the mile with a coworker or a friend and their spouse receives the leftovers. Or as a friend you will have to carry the load the majority of the time. They tend to participate in just about everything at their place of worship, or work related activities, yet their home life suffers and takes secondary place. Their need for acceptance by others is their priority. This should not be. It is clear that they don’t perceive  or understand God’s Omnipresence.

 

Anger and dysfunction need to be confronted. Avoiding conflict is not healthy. Did you know you could break unhealthy cycles by employing better ways to resolve conflict? Allowing a cooling off period before discussing the problem may be helpful. Always seek direction from the Lord He will never lead you wrong. He will help you to humble yourself. Learn to walk in meekness. Which is power under disciplined control.

 

Sharing a one sided account of what has happened to your friends will not help your relationship. It may get you some momentary support. But it won’t help you to grow spiritually. Words spoken in a fit of anger can be very damaging. Taking responsibility for your actions is always a step in the right direction. Letting go and allowing them space to feel the consequences for their actions can be beneficial to their spiritual maturity.

 

The world is a very inconsistent place. God’s standards are not often respected nor appreciated by many. God must be the central focus of your life and  relationships for true successful living as a believer. Life will present challenges. But with the help of the Lord; He can and will deliver you through it all. The prophets pleaded over and over with God’s people to return to His principles. But many still preferred to do their own thing. Knowing the WORD of GOD for yourself is important. God wants to be first in your life. Remember after all you claim you belong to Him?

 

As believers we have been grafted into His family. He wants us to know Him through His Word. God has instructed us to; “Hear O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord. And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thine soul, and with all thine might. And thou shalt teach them diligently unto they children and talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest……. (Deuteronomy 6) God loves us and is faithful. ALL HIS WORD IS TRUE.

‘”GOD IS LOVE!” Love will help you weather the storms of life. Love must be balanced. The term “unconditional love” is often misused today. I often hear SOME SAY; “I can do without your kind of love.” Well, “your kind or my kind of love” is not love at all. This is really more about how you are feeling in the moment. Remember, God sets the standard for love, for “God is Love” Unless we measure it by His standards it’s merely subjective opinion. For example; the more I don’t rock your boat you love me. Once you rock my boat I tell you to get out. Now all of a sudden you cry, “You don’t love me anymore.” As long as I let you rock my boat it’s thought of as love. This does not have to be. WRONG! This is immaturity. How can something as important as Love be reduced to such insignificant terms. This is what I call “intoxicating affections.” It mimics love and doesn’t last.

 

Don’t get love confused with how you feel in the moment. You can not like what someone does and still love them. It is love that actually helps you to respond properly or not respond to them despite the way you feel. Remember God’s love rejoices in the truth! Although it can be painful shift through what someone says to you and see if there is any truth in it. Make an adjustment whenever necessary. This is how you shape your character. Beware of counterfeit love. When you have been truly loved you will know the difference.

 

In a healthy marriage or relationship you do not seek to reduce the love you have for one another. You take responsibility for your actions and how you are feeling.

There are only a few that find genuine love. But God really wants this for all of us. Love is precious! It is never too late to seek GOD’S LOVE! This is true if you are married or single. “Be ye perfect because I AM Perfect” God really does wants us to become perfect in HIM. Which means to become complete in HIM who IS LOVE! No one is flawless but JESUS. This is why we all need HIM as SAVIOR & LORD! HE says; we ALL CAN BECOME PERFECT in HIM! Scriptures tells us that love covers a multitude of faults. This does not mean we ignore or condone sinful habits. Don’t be deceived. There are consequences for sin. This is why it is so very important to know His Word for yourself!

Growing your love in a healthy marriage or genuine relationship should be a mutual priority!

We are living in some interesting times when some of everything is happening all over the world. The Spiritual Warfare in these “Last Days” has heightened. The devil’s agenda is to reek extreme havoc upon the children of God as well as those in the world. He will use whoever he can. He knows that time is winding UP!

Now is a good time to seek the Lord above all else. In the Word, God says; “Is anyone of you in trouble! He should PRAY!” James 5 Humble yourself before the Lord. Be encouraged for GOD always has a way to HIM 24/7…
