How often do you actually read God’s Word during the week?

~ WE ALL ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD! ~

HOW OFTEN DO YOU ACTUALLY READ GOD’S WORD DURING THE WEEK?

The chaos that is ALL about us in this world it NOT because of GOD!

Many of the ways of this world have nested themselves within the midst of GOD’S CHURCH! In the Spiritual Realm; “THE WHEAT & the tares are growing together.” PRAY FOR DISCERNMENT!

HEAVENLY FATHER, “YOUR KINGDOM COME, YOUR WILL BE DONE on earth as it IS IN HEAVEN. GIVE US TODAY Our DAILY BREAD…”

~ LATTER DAY MINISTRY! ~

GOD NEVER INTENDED for HIS CHURCH to become a mere; “social club.”

Unless Your Pastor is Your husband He should not come before Your husband. Your husband is NOT Your servant… Your commitment should be to Your marriage vows you made together to the Lord! Your marriage will be or become what You make it!  When you honor your marriage vows you  honor God and one another.

It is important to consistently spend time with the Lord in His Word. He has provided a wealth of godly wisdom to help us live well balanced lives.  Marriage is the first institution that the Lord made.  God created mankind so that our lives would center around Him.

GOD DESERVES THE PREEMINENCE

ALLOW GOD HIS PLACE WITHIN YOUR MARRIAGE!

“Marriage is honorable in the eyes of the Lord… Many Marriages are dissolving because your home life has become secondary.

“Therefore as the CHURCH IS SUBJECT unto CHRIST, so let the wives be to their OWN husbands in everything.” EPHESIANS 5

Your children should not be left to fend for themselves or left in the hands of just anyone… “TRAIN UP a child in the WAY he SHOULD GO and when he is old he WILL NOT depart…. Proverbs 22

Single women Your Pastor is NOT your husband. He is to Spiritually Feed You & encourage You through the WORD of GOD. He too should live by and uphold the principles of GOD and embrace the TRUTH of HIS WORD.

ALLOW THE LORD HIS PLACE WITHIN YOUR SINGLE LIFE!

~ THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD! ~

Men & Women of GOD Seek the Will of the Lord in whatever You are doing…  We are called to preach, teach, proclaim and live out the Word of God within our daily lives.  The call upon our lives is from GOD not man. The Lord will never lead any of us to do anything that goes against His Word.   REMEMBER; the Sheep belong to the Lord! & We TOO are ALL HIS SHEEP!

It is not always easy carrying out the Will of the Lord.  Take The Prophet Jeremiah  for example. He was sent to speak a gloomy message to the people. He is known as God’s Reluctant Messenger.   He is also known as the “Weeping Prophet.” He warned the officials and clergy for over (40)  forty years.   They hated his messages from God and plotted against him. Many overlook the fact that it wasn’t always pleasant words sent from the Lord. God’s Word is not always comforting or encouraging. But it s always warranted and necessary to make us spiritually strong.  It is  the necessary Spiritual Food for our mind, body and soul.  Jeremiah was charged to remind the people of the need to REPENT!  He was sent to a nation that was going to be destroyed by war.

Israel forsook God. Three hundred  years before the Israelites  had already been split into  (2)  two separate countries.    They had continually laid aside the Word of God and followed after the ways and  traditions of man.  Many times Jeremiah stood alone faithfully delivering the messages from God.  They treated him terribly and even burned his writings. He received much persecution. Although he was unwelcomed he remained obedient to the Lord.

Allow God His place during worship!  He knows if you are genuine for God is Omniscient.  We should always want our worship to be pleasing in the sight of the Lord!  “True Worshippers  worship Him in Spirit and in Truth!” 

Jeremiah  stood at the  gate of the Lord’s House and said;

“Hear the WORD of the LORD, all you people of Judah who come through these gates to worship the Lord. This is what the Lord  Almighty, the God of Israel says: Reform your ways and actions, and I will let you live in his place Do not trust in deceptive words and say; “This is the Temple of the Lord, The Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord!” If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with  each other justly, if you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless or the widow and DO NOT shed innocent blood in this place, and if you DO NOT follow after other gods to your own harm, then I will let you live in this place…” Jeremiah 7

The Lord goes on to tell them that they have become a den of robbers and that He is watching! Despite the litany of prophesies and warnings they still  disobeyed.  For over (50)  fifty chapters the Book of Jeremiah hammers away at the guilt of Israel.  Their disobedience  eventually led to destruction and captivity.  It behooves us to seek the Will & Way of the Lord in these “Latter Days” when so much is going on throughout the  world that goes against what the Lord has said.  Many countries are suffering including the United States of America.  Many of the ways of the world have also  nested themselves in the midst of the Lord’s Church. We who are called  must continue to  speak forth the Truth of God’s Word whether,  if it is received or not.  God has provided a plethora of  ways and resources for us to do so.

God always leaves a remnant of His people. We are to “be in the world but not of the world…” We are to daily embrace the Truth of His word and live out His principles within our daily lives. God keeps His promises and will continue to grow us in His grace, wisdom and knowledge as we  strive and live to please Him. There is nothing more important in life. Life itself consists because of God! ” For it is in HIM we live and move and have our being…”

Have you read God’s Word this week? It is never too late to start today. God’s Word is like no other. It is ALIVE!

In Jeremiah God promised the people  that at some point He would give them Pastors after His own heart.  If you read Jeremiah closely you will see that this never happened during the time of the Prophet Jeremiah. Idolatry was prevalent and many false lying  prophets were plentiful. There was even wickedness in the Temple.  “The prophets follow an evil course and use their power unjustly, Both prophet an priest are godless  even in the temple I find their  wickedness…” Jeremiah 23 There were also  many droughts and famines throughout the land.

The majority of the  people did not have access to the Word as we do now. Most  of them received the Word through the prophets and the priests.  Today we are without excuse. God’s Word is readily available.

Today in this 21st century  we have easy access to the Word of God. It is important to spend time with the Lord in His Word and encourage others to do so as well.  This is how we make a difference.  Then, when or wherever we gather together for worship we will be well prepared to worship the Lord in the  way He so rightly deserves.  God is omnipresent and always present and available to help us  in any and every situation wherever we are. He does not force His way into our lives.  God  really wants to be a part of every area of our lives.  I assure you He can and will make all the difference in the world like no other.

In the Book of Hebrews  God shows us that He changes His people from the inside out.  He places his laws within their hearts.  He comes to abide within us as we accept Christ Jesus as Savior and Lord.  He gives us His precious Holy Spirit His Comforter, who  is then able to lead and guide us to ALL TRUTH!  Praise God  & Thank You Lord!

Truly the Lord is My Shepherd!

“Woe be unto the Pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of MY PASTURE! Said the LORD!” JEREMIAH 23

KNOW & EMBRACE THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD! SPEND TIME DAILY WITH THE LORD IN HIS WORD.  “WALK IN THE LIGHT” & DAILY PUT ON THE ARMOR OF THE LORD. THIS IS HOW YOU PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD. WE ARE TO LIVE  EACH DAY AS THOUGH WE EXPECT HIM AT ANY TIME.

Spiritual Food For Thought & Spiritual Growth 4

Spiritual Food For Thought! & Spiritual Growth! 4

“Let the Prophet who has a dream tell his dream, but let the one who has MY WORD speak it FAITHFULLY. For what has a straw to do with grain?” declares the LORD.” Is not MY WORD like FIRE” declares the LORD.” and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?

“Therefore,” declares the LORD, “I am against the prophets who steal from one another words that are supposedly from ME. “YES” declares the LORD, “I AM against the prophets who wag their own tongue and yet declare, “The LORD declares.’ Indeed I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” declares the LORD. They tell them and lead MY people astray with their reckless lies. Yet I DID NOT send or appoint them. They DO NOT benefit these people in the least,” declares the LORD..” Jeremiah 23 ~ WORD FOR TODAY

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

There is a great difference between True & false prophets. Straw is used for food and grain is to nourish. When we are called to proclaim, preach and teach GOD’S WORD be led by the SPIRIT of GOD! Embrace the TRUTH of the WORD of GOD over the traditions of man. Rather if we speak from a pulpit, platform, classroom, face book, internet station, share with friends or one on one we are entrusted to truthfully express GOD’S WORD! GOD IS ALWAYS aware of what we say, our thoughts and our motives.

PREACH the WORD & not gossip! Whenever we give an opinion it should be made known that this is the case. It is not so much about where you physically stand. It is more important that you STAND upon the WORD of GOD! For example; Just know that the pulpit was a platform built for Ezra to stand upon. Here he preached the WORD of GOD all morning long. “And Ezra the Scribe stood upon a “pulpit of wood, which was made for the purpose… Nehemiah 8 Jesus preached outside, inside, on a mountain even from a boat.

Know GOD’S WORD for yourself!

Deliverance, Emotional and Spiritual Healing is possible with the Lord. In these perilous time it is important to make all people of the world aware of GOD’S OMNIPRESENCE! To teach them how to “BE STILL & KNOW!” Guess what? Judgement begins at the HOUSE of GOD! GOD’S CHURCH is supposed to be “The PILLAR OF TRUTH!”

There is never a need to manipulate or plot… PRAY FOR DISCERNMENT! For; “THE WHEAT and the tares are growing together” TRULY GOD WILL FIGHT YOUR BATTLES. Allow The LORD to be your defense Instead say: LORD have YOUR WAY!

Jeremiah is a marvelous example! He is known as the weeping prophet. His message often made the people feel sad and not glad. They did not want to change but be made to feel comfortable living in sin. They wanted to go through the motions but they did not want to REPENT… They rejected Jeremiah and labeled him negative to discredit him so the people would not receive his message from the Lord!

Ministry is not a popularity contest. It is not about the numbers as well. Keep in mind that there were multitudes of people that followed Christ Jesus. Yet when He was crucified many abandoned Him? Look around and see how the world at large is shifting away from the principles of God. Today being corrected by the Word is not always readily welcomed… This is why it is so very important to be led by the SPIRIT of GOD. Many want to simply remain comfortable doing as they please. But the question is; is GOD pleased? Know that the Lord has a purpose and plan for each of our lives.

Do not fret because of evil instead BE AWARE, TRUST GOD and SEEK HIS direction in all things. Spend time meditating upon His Word!

“REJOICE in the LORD ALWAYS!” For, “Where the Spirit of the LORD is there is Liberty!”

Prepare each day expecting the Lord to return. JESUS CHRIST really is coming back for HIS CHURCH without spot or wrinkle!
