~ Cleansing us from sin is the business of the Holy Spirit ~

 

 

~ Cleansing us from sin is the business of the Holy Spirit ~

 

SALVATION is beautiful. However, as believers none of us are exempt from sin.  We are all “SAVED” by GOD’S grace. But what makes us  different  is we as believers have been given the gift of God’s precious  Holy Spirit that dwells within us. We are to ask God to fill us whenever necessary.

 

Our body is a Temple where His Holy Spirit, His Comforter resides.  His Spirit is the keeper and restorer of our souls.  And the Holy Spirit has cleansing power and  is able to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. “I  AM THE TRUE VINE, AND MY FATHER IS THE HUSBAND MAN.  EVERY BRANCH IN ME that beareth not fruit He taketh away. AND EVERY BRANCH THAT BEARETH FRUIT, HE PURGETH IT, THAT IT MAY BRING FORTH MORE FRUIT.    NOW YE ARE CLEAN THROUGH THE WORD WHICH I  HAVE SPOKEN UNTO YOU.  ABIDE IN ME, AND I IN YOU…” JOHN 15

 

 

Christ Jesus has imputed His righteousness to us. There is genuine grace, joy, peace, security & significance in the Lord. For this we can be thankful.  It is important to make God a priority.   For He can keep us on the Narrow Path.  It is the road less traveled.  There is much going on in the world today.  Make sure you set aside some time with the Lord in His Word and allow Him to direct your path. 

 

 

“We are to be in the world but not of the world.”

 

 

And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove  what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”   Romans 12

 

GOD KNOWS HIS OWN!

 

We as believers  learn to sin less as we daily  “Walk in the Light.”  God’s Word is more than able. “Thy WORD is  a Lamp unto my feet and a Light unto my path. I Have sworn, and I will keep thy righteous judgments.”  Psalm 119  We are without excuse.  For God is always willing and ready to help us in any and every situation. Therefore, we should readily REPENT whenever we realize that we have sinned.  For sin keeps us separated from God. This is true if it is by commission or omission.   We are to actually embrace and daily live by His Word as His people.

 

 

“Draw nigh to GOD and HE will draw nigh to you!” 

We, God’s  people  from all over the world who have truly accepted Christ Jesus into our hearts as our Lord and Savior make up God’s universal Church.   There are many places of worship throughout  the world where we can gather together and worship, thank  and praise God.  God knows whenever our worship is sincere. Worship is a time to recognize GOD for for who HE is, and what HE means to us.  A sacred time  to reverence HIM!!! 

 

 

God has only (1) one CHURCH. We should  always honor God and “Worship  Him in Spirit and in TRUTH!”  Know that God is forever omnipresent. Therefore, we can call upon our Lord and Savior Jesus to help us at anytime and anywhere.  He is our Almighty  Sovereign God,  and He is omnipresent.  “What a mighty GOD we serve!” We know not the hour or the day?  However, we are to daily live as though we are expecting Christ Jesus to return at any time. 

 

 

We do not demand  GOD to do whatever we want.

 

We can pray (talk to GOD) wherever we are 24/7.  Keep in mind His Holy Spirit can keep and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Therefore, we should always approach God in a respectful manner. Such as: “Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name…”  For God is not a man nor a  genie.  As God, we should always reverence Him. We are to daily exalt God!  Each day is an opportunity to build an ongoing, personal intimate, up close  transparent relationship  with Him.  God already knows what we are going to say or what we all think. Therefore, we do not simply demand Him to do whatever we ask. But as men, women and children of God we are to share, preach, teach, proclaim and daily  live out loud His Word!   He is our Creator & Maker. We can always & forever trust  God and His Word. For God has promised to “Supply all of our need according to HIS riches in Glory by Christ Jesus!” Philippians 4

 

 

Unbelievers are encouraged to get to know GOD

 

As for the unbelievers who have not accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, we are to encourage them to embrace the Truth of God’s Word. But we must first believe HIS WORD ourselves.  We are to demonstrate our faith and belief in God by the manner in which we live and approach life.  For those who oppose the Word we are to be living examples.  We do not have to argue or force GOD’S WORD upon anyone. However, we should know  that The WORD of GOD is HIS infallible  TRUTH! ” In  God we have been given much liberty.  But we are also accountable to Him.  We have a responsibility to the LORD to be a daily reflection of Him to the unbelievers of this world.

WE ARE TO WILLINGLY SUBMIT TO GOD’ S WILL AND FOLLOW HIS INSTRUCTIONS IF WE DESIRE A FAVORABLE OUTCOME. IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW THINGS APPEAR TO OTHERS. 
 
 
JEHOSOPHAT KING OF JUDAH TOLD THE PRIESTS, JUDGES, LEVITES & PEOPLE TO CONSIDER WHATEVER THEY DO & LET THE FEAR OF THE LORD BE UPON THEM. HE KNEW & CONFIRMED  THIS AS WELL AND GAVE  THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS;
 
 
 
 “YOU MUST SERVE FAITHFULLY AND WHOLEHEARTEDLY IN THE FEAR OF THE LORD.

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

CHRIST JESUS FULFILLED THE LAW.
WE ARE SAVED BY GOD’S GRACE AND JUSTIFIED BY FAITH.
IN EVERY AND ANY SITUATION WE CAN TRUST GOD TO BE GOD.
 
 
“TO DECLARE, I SAY, AT  THIS TIME HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; THAT HE MIGHT BE JUST, AND THE JUSTIFIER OF Him/Her  WHICH BELIEVETH  IN JESUS.     WHERE IS BOASTING THEN?    IT IS EXCLUDED. BY WHAT LAW?    OF WORKS?     NAY; BUT BY THE LAW OF FAITH.
 
THEREFORE WE CONCLUDE THAT A Man/Woman IS JUSTIFIED BY FAITH  WITHOUT THE DEEDS OF HE LAW.”  ROMANS 3
 
“AND YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE  YOU FREE.” 
 
KNOW GOD AND HIS WORD FOR YOURSELF!
 
“THANK YOU HALLLELLLUJAH!!!”

Moving To Higher Ground Part 2

LEADERSHIP STYLES CHANGE AND FLUCTUATE

I have seen an innumerable amount of leadership styles change over many decades and fluctuate outrageously within the church. Robert Rules of Order often suspended right alongside with broken commitments and biblical principles. Discipline and morality are all too often tossed aside like a garden variety salad. Then dressed up with a salad dressing of pickled “unconditional love” garnished with hot sassy tempers. There is no need at all to be jealous of this… What do you do when you know that something has gone awry? Should you just go along with the majority to be accepted within the group? NO! You PRAY and seek the Lord’s direction. You know that His Church is not made by hands.

Truly the LORD is our Forever GOOD SHEPHERD!

We the people are His true Church! God will always make a way. Truly God will fight your battles. God’s Word really does have cleansing power. “All scripture is God breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so the Man/Woman of God can be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” When applied it really works! To be accepted you must often do anything but stand up for what’s right. If you don’t conform, you risk being accused of being unfriendly and considered unloving. To put it simply you are downright labeled evil, and oh by the way, you just don’t like people. REPENT!!!

“And You SHALL KNOW the TRUTH, and The TRUTH WILL SET you FREE!” THANK GOD FOR DISCERNMENT! HALLLELLLUJAH ANYHOW!

The Lord says that we should “not conform but be transformed by the renewing of our minds.” I love the Lord and all that His Church really stands for! I cannot count the times that I have been told by so many that I now; just go and do my duty and leave……… I can literally stay in a good Spirit filled worship service all day and night. There is nothing I like better.  God is my life. I am really thankful that I know a few places of worship where I can retreat to that God truly is worshipped “in Spirit and in Truth.”  I Thank God for His Apostles, bishops, ministers, minstrels, elders, teachers and pastors who really realize that He is worthy of the honor and preeminence.

BROTHERS & SISTERS?

I stay in the loop just enough to stay abreast of how things are progressing. I applaud those who continue to jockey for the inside positions. I take the “CALL” upon my life seriously. GOD’S APPROVAL is all I/ we need! But with those who say they are my brothers and sisters or sinners? I simply refuse to continue to fight. It never ceases to amaze me what they will fight over. Things such as what to wear and when. Should we dress formally or informally, depending on who or what we are celebrating? This is our church? Yes indeed for some it may be your building but really is God’s Church welcomed? I thought it was all about who? JESUS of course! Well, I am a part of GOD’S CHURCH!

Apostle John’s attire was made from camel’s hair. Do you know what a camel’s hair coat cost? How much does some of the designer jeans cost? Who gets to stand out front and lead sing? Who gets to preach and sit in the “high chairs” or sit on the front row? What group dances today? This is my seat? What Tee shirt or jersey are we wearing today? How much money does such and such a person have or give or don’t give? Whose uncle or father is in charge or whose mother, father, brother or sister,  teaches Sunday School? Where does the piano go? Whose family is in charge and on and on… What does it matter? REPENT!!!

We choose to praise, thank and worship God everyday!

If it matters so much that we look alike as far as our facial colors, and that we are from the same denomination or? How does that all fit into God’s plan? Heaven is not segregated by color. The great commission includes everyone. Lord help us! The point I am trying to make is; I’m out of the ring but not ever out of His presence. Back sliding is not even an option! I have spent too much time within the walls. As a matter of act all of my life… Let me out!  Together we agree to worship the Lord on one accord; “In Spirit and in Truth!” Being A Christian is our daily lifestyle! You see it does not matter what you say; I know who I belong to.  Not arrogant, no low self-esteem but indeed confident! I encourage you to really get to know the Lord for yourself! This way you will not be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine. I am steadily moving towards…

Moving to Higher Ground

Jesus lived, died and arose so we could live differently. We can go anywhere in this world He created. He freely gave us the precious eternal gift of salvation! We have been given the gift of having His Holy Spirit residing within us! It has been sealed with a promise He has also promised to supply “all of our needs.” And He does and will for He keeps all His promises. That means the needs of His Church as well. If you lack wisdom; Ask God? He will and can make a way out of no way for His Will. He is the ultimate Way Maker!

“HE’S A GREAT GOD!”

The great commission described in Matthew simply says; “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age…” Matthew 28:19-20. I thank God for freeing us to go beyond the walls.  Abba Father God,  has allowed us to carry the Gospel of Christ Jesus many places throughout the world far & near…  This has allowed us to really step out on FAITH and launch out into the deep and cast my/our line far beyond the shallow shore. God is utterly amazing!

God is so cavernously deep! He is infinite. We are to give Him the preeminence in everything. I am thankful of my position in Christ as His child!  I am also thankful to be His Elder/Minister and Ambassador dedicated to The Gospel of Christ Jesus! God is omnipresent and forever faithful. Everywhere we are and go  He is  with me/us!  In Him alone; I am confident and know I am never alone. Although it is quite liberating, to the unknowing surface onlookers it appears as though perhaps I have become aloof. “Stand fast therefore in the Liberty wherewith CHRiST has set you free and be not entangled with a yoke of bondage…” Galatians 5

GET BETTER NOT BITTER

Wherever we are; it is important to always be aware of what is happening around us.  Even more so in the midst of worship. “Praying without ceasing” is a state of mind. We must constantly turn our minds to the Lord and seek His direction. Know when and when not to respond. I thank & praise God for discernment. But His Holy Spirit keeps me meek and alert!  “THANK YOU HALLLELLLUJAH!

“Man looks on the outside, God looks at the heart.” He not only looks but knows what is in all of our hearts.   Saved, sanctified & free!  For God has placed a spiritual altar in my/heart. A place reserved for Him…  He made each of us uniquely. “GOD is not a respecter of persons. He does not discriminate. So whosoever will; HE says; COME!

“PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING”

Pray all throughout your day and take praise breaks. This is how we stay connected to the Lord. You can pray standing, sitting still, laying down or laying prone flat face down. Yes, you should pray going about your daily activities. God will meet you wherever you are and continuously allow His Grace, Joy & Peace manifest and multiply within you. Through Christ Jesus, His Holy Spirit will lead us as we diligently seek Him. Everything that you will ever need for life, daily living and eternal life you can discover in the Lord.

HEAVEN is GOD’S THRONE and the earth is GOD’S FOOTSTOOL!  

CHRIST JESUS really is coming back for HIS CHURCH  not made by hands. Each day is a precious “GIFT” from the Lord. God holds each one of us accountable for how we embrace and live out what we say we believe. So, thrive to live each day to please God. The victory is in your sincere praise. “God inhabits the praises of His people.” As a matter of fact; new heights I am gaining every day. I have found a higher place. My aim and my goal is; I am daily reaching towards “HIGHER GROUND!!!”

The Nobody’s Perfect Club – Unlimited Excuses Part 1

The longer I live the more I realize how utterly important it is to develop an intimate personal relationship with the Lord. I have learned that when a teller is trained in the banking industry, they are taught how to recognize the authenticity of currency. Therefore, whenever a counterfeit bill is passed, they are able to recognize it.

 

“Nobody’s Perfect Club!”

 

You want to know how to recognize and hear the voice of the LORD! 

We live in a real world that is full of systems of deception created to distract us from the genuine purpose of life. Our life purpose is to glorify GOD ALMIGHTY.  Without the Holy Spirit as your Navigator you will get towed right along.   This deception has further infiltrated the Church. It beckons those who are willing to make excuses for their shortcomings, to excuse self-gratification as a mere attribute to mankind’s imperfections. To immorally satisfy the carnal appetite to all who are willing to submit to the, well; “Nobody’s Perfect Club.” 

 

This will only erroneously teach you although, “the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof;”  He doesn’t really know how to bless His children. Why is that? Because He intends for them to stay dependent on anything and everybody until they leave this world. Although they don’t believe blessings are just material, actual spiritual growth and development are optional. I warn you this will only enslave you to a life dependent upon sin.

 

God really has given us many liberties.  Know there are consequences for our choices. 

 

We really often miss the point. You see God doesn’t force us.  He allows us all the freedom to choose. Instead, many often choose to justify living a life where sin abounds. This gives us unlimited privileges in the “Nobody’s Perfect Club.” He did not make us to be robots. It is time out for playing games…   

 

We are to daily grow in His grace and sin less.   Not simply make excuses. These are some very serious; “Perilous Last days!”  Yes, He does still intend for us to respect Him as Father and Lord within our daily lives. Not in a legalistic manner. We serve an Omnipresent, Omnipotent Almighty GOD! He wants us to enjoy healthy fulfilling well rounded lives! Remember always; “the earth is the LORD’S and the fullness thereof the world and them that dwell within it.  For He has founded it upon the seas, and established t upon the floods…” Psalm 24

 

Ministry must go beyond the walls!

 

The “Nobody’s perfect club” allows easy access to unlimited excuses. It has a plethora of earthly benefits. You can live any way you want, say anything you want, little or no study required. Listening to an occasional lecture or message may be required to help you with attendance kudos. Or just reading a few scriptures.  Listening not required just say amen when it gets too quiet. Just show up on Sunday? And act as you are happy? This Guarantees access to many carnal fringe benefits I prefer not to mention. You may even receive a B.A. (born again) if you don’t rock the boat.  Come as you are and possibly stay as you are?  And yes, your name placed on the membership role. You see we are saved by grace. That gives you a license to indulge yourself. Afterall “Nobody’s perfect.”

 

One caution, you may be persecuted or covertly disfellowshipped if you genuinely decide to “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the WORD of TRUTH.  But shun profane and vain babblings; for they will increase unto more ungodliness. “ II Timothy 2 Why? Because you are trying to be too perfect.

 

Please if you have truly accepted “Christ as your personal Savior” allow Him to really work within you and actually become an integral part of your daily life.  Allow Him to activate His Holy Spirit within your life.  HE CAN CLEANSE YOU FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS…  You can be content, happy and fulfilled in the Lord. And you do not have to compromise His Word or principles. Know you will often be misunderstood.   God can and will make a marvelous difference within your life. And also make spiritual deposits to your eternal account that will yield a harvest of marvelous spiritual, physical, and an endless array of marvelous blessings.

 

Accept Christ Jesus into your heart

If you have not accepted JESUS as your SAVIOR & LORD; please DO, “ACCEPT HIM NOW!”  Truly and earnestly ask JESUS into your heart and life this very moment. Ask Him to forgive you for your sins because you want to make a FRESH START!   You want to sincerely  REPENT!!!  (Meaning; COMMIT to turn from your ways and the ways of the world and turn your life over to GOD!)  & SAY YES to GOD!!!  Because You really do want to change and   sincerely commit your life to GOD! 

 

I assure you it will be a marvelous journey like no other. If you have grown slack in your commitment; (to GOD’s principles activated in your life) it is time to recommit! Getting serious has its price. So, I must warn you. There is a serious battle ahead of you.  When you do, it is important to know and expect, when you do this a lot of spiritual warfare will be launched against you as well as your family. It wants to discourage you and make you conform. So, know you will be placed under a microscope and any flaws even merely detected in you and your family will be magnified.  But PRAISE BE TO GOD it is still truly worth it! Simply rest in the fact, GOD always knows the TRUTH!

 

GOD begins to manifest the Fruit of HIS SPIRIT within you as you commit to HIS WILL. We never get to the place that we can do without GOD. Spiritual strength grows as you grow up and exercise your FAITH & TRUST in the LORD! 

 

There is much spiritual warfare that happens even in the midst of worship 

 

GOD created us to live a life pleasing in His sight.  It is important to “Worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth!”   Yet know it can get interesting at times.  Be ready, for a lot goes on during worship.   Some people will step over you, talk over you and yes be downright rude.   They can be quite territorial.  They often really want to impress the Pastor more than God.  Life is not a movie and Church is not a scene. Although it’s full of actors, it’s serious business. Things are not always as they appear. It is important to know we the people are GOD’S CHURCH! HEAVEN is HIS THRONE, and the earth is HIS footstool!  Be ready!  Because yes, you are in for some surprises. Don’t believe everything you hear.  Whatever you do; DO NOT hang out with the gossipers.

 

There are many facets to a story so make sure you have the facts before you assume something is true.   When in doubt pray and seek the Lord’s direction.   I have seen relationships go awry based on error… Some will say and do just about anything.  Be willing to take responsibility for whatever you say and or do.  There is always a possibility you will be misunderstood. So, choose words & battles wisely.  In the midst of spiritual warfare there are many fiery darts that come forth.  But praise be to GOD for HIS breastplate of righteousness.  Also know many also have selective memories.

 

Always know it is the “Truth that will set you Free!” 

 

Seek to believe the TRUTH!  God holds each of us accountable for what we know.   PRAY FOR DISCERNMENT! Please bear with me. You see I have been in Church all my life. ABBA FATHER continues to grow me up in His grace, knowledge understanding and wisdom… HIS astounding ETERNAL LOVE is glorious!  If this is not where you are you have no need to be offended. 

 

Life is precious. “GOD IS not a respecter of persons!” Each day is an opportunity to grow in the wisdom and knowledge of the Lord.  We can reap and enjoy all these marvelous spiritual benefits.  Come what may, it is your choice.  As you mature in the Lord you become increasingly aware that He is absolutely aware of your motives, actions and intents.  Therefore, you don’t indulge in the mental games.  Your responses are not hasty but intentional.  Your desire is to facilitate and encourage genuine spiritual growth to help mature the Body of Christ. You know that we have as children of God a responsibility to give our omnipresent Heavenly Father Honor!  “We are to be in the world but not of the world…”   To encourage, admonish and correct one another with the Word in a healthy manner. As well as embrace it daily and live it out in front of non-believers as well. To get to know God and develop a personal ongoing intimate relationship with Him through Christ Jesus.

 

 For we have committed to be HIS people!

The Nobody’s Perfect club – Unlimited Excuses Part 2

Seek GOD first  before everything!

 

GOD really is omniscient! I still can’t quite grasp why many really don’t believe. God really does hear all and see all we do.  That includes absolutely ALL OF US, everywhere all over the world! If we did, it would eliminate a lot of the charades and manipulations and cliques. GOD IS REAL!

 

 

GOD has only ONE CHURCH!

 

Remember, “seeking first His kingdom and His righteousness… “ will really add all you need in this life. But always know you cannot manipulate God. He is not like a genie. Yes, He is Omnipresent. But He is not at our every beckon call. He does not answer or respond at our command. We are all beneath HIM…. Remember earth is HIS footstool. It should be our desire for His Will to be accomplished within each of us. We are all, at His mercy! And yes, He knows when we are truly seeking Him first. 

 

God is patient loving and kind… He is also a God of wrath. He is giving HIS CHURCH and this world time to get itself together. CHRIST JESUS really is coming back for “HIS CHURCH without spot or wrinkle. We His Church are supposed to live as though we are expecting JESUS to return at any time? In this we can be confident. Many Believers as well as unbelievers are transitioning out of this world daily. You as a believer can be certain of your final destination.

 

Get right with GOD!

 

Those of us who still remain when Jesus returns will be caught up to meet Him in the air. “For this we say unto you by the Word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, and the voice of the archangel and the trump of GOD and the dead in CHRIST shall rise first. Then we which are alive shall be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. I Thessalonians 4.

 

GOD really does have us all and everything under His control. What do you mean? He is our sovereign Lord! Almighty God is omnipotent! Absolutely nothing anywhere in this world gets by Him. Not one miniscule single iota. Remember everything was spoken into existence through Christ Jesus! Above Him is no other. He has given us countless examples.

 

The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew is a wonderful example. It really does contain a wealth of knowledge. Jesus discusses a multiplicity of issues here.  He deals with being Blessed, life, sin, death, persecution, taking oaths, adultery, divorce, enemies and so much more….  You will find that these same issues are prevalent today. Ponder all the marvelous blessings here! “The TRUTH will set you free. “Blessed are…” Take some time and read and digest this in Matthew 5. 

 

Know GOD and HIS WORD for yourself!

The WORD of God contains precious invaluable instructions. We need the valid honest authentic no nonsense spiritual training found in His Word.  For His Word gives us marvelous examples to help us from falling prey to non-biblical unspiritual teachings. It even tells how the “Blood of Jesus” can cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  God has given us His Holy Spirit as an excellent guide and teacher to lead us to all TRUTH! His Holy Spirit is our Comforter, to lead us to all TRUTH!

 

The majority in HIS Church are you and Christ Jesus. He is the; “Head of His Church!” If you don’t stand for Jesus, you will fall for anything. Know GOD and HIS WORD for yourself! His WORD will equip you to better discern truth from error. Remember that bank currency I talked about. Jesus stresses the importance of God’s way being the best way.

 

You can be or become PERFECT in the LORD! 

Don’t allow anyone to make withdrawals from your spiritual account. (By the way nobody is perfect in the normal sense.) “For it is in HIM we live and move and have our being…”  Acts 17 But don’t forget. The Bible is not talking about flawlessness, it is talking about being PERFECT (meaning COMPLETE) in our LORD & CHRIST JESUS! “Be ye therefore PERFECT, even as YOUR FATHER which is in Heaven is PERFECT!”  Matthew 5 God would not tell us to do something that we are unable to do.  Learn how to control your tongue! Apostle Peter and all the Apostles all teach adamantly; “We ought to OBEY GOD rather than Man /Woman.” Acts 4

 

Give God His place within your life. RESET your thinking and REPENT! “PRAY without ceasing” and take PRAISE BREAKS; all throughout your day. This is how you stay connected to the Lord!

 

THANK YOU, ABBA FATHER, for YOUR MARVELOUS HOLY SPIRIT & COMFORTER. Know that nothing or no one can separate you from the LOVE of GOD unless you allow it.

 

Becoming perfect in the Lord is possible…”  ABBA FATHER, THANK YOU for the making us PERFECT IN YOU! “These are important things to know and holdfast. It is an ever-growing spiritual process. We are, “forever becoming” unto the Lord calls us home.   Each day we have the opportunity to grow in GOD’S genuine endless eternal love and grace… The POWER of THE WONDER WORKING BLOOD of CHRIST JESUS yields invaluable spiritual dividends for those who learn to earnestly CALL and TRUST HIM as SAVIOR and LORD.

 

Oh, what a wonderful SAVIOR!

What’s a Savior? Oh! He helps us from allowing the power of sin to rule within our daily lives. He continuously shapes and molds us in His image.  He loves us, forgives us and strengthens us as we faithfully digest, embrace and implement HIS WORD within our lives each day.   He walks & talks with us and keeps on the Narrow Path that leads to Eternal Life in Heaven. In the LORD you can be confident.  

 

There is power in being obedient to God. Meekness is power under control. God is omnipotent! And therefore, we access power through His Holy Spirit to do His will. We never become the power. This is why we all need Christ Jesus.

 

Spend quality one on one time with the Lord in HIS WORD. Your life truly can be transformed through Christ Jesus. You will live and think differently. GOD will never leave nor forsake us. He also keeps all His promises. He can impute His righteousness to you. He can save you by HIS grace!

 

“WHAT A FRIEND!”

 

CHRIST JESUS is a FRIEND like no other! None can compare.

Let nothing separate you from HIS LOVE! Get busy discovering that having God in your life is really all about. GOD brings purpose to our lives every day. God is forever faithful! Know without doubt in these perilous last days; “JESUS CHRIST IS THE WAY THE TRUH AND THE LIFE!”  So, don’t relinquish the spiritual deposits only God can provide, for membership in the “Nobody’s perfect club.” Don’t follow the crowd.

 

Finally, brethren farewell, BE PERFECT, Be of good comfort, Be of one mind, live in peace, and the GOD Of PEACE shall be with you…”  II Corinthians 14

 

GOD’S WORD is our necessary essential spiritual food for our mind, body & souls. Each day is a day to get better and be better. Praise and thank God for each day is a precious Gift from HIM. God will never tell us to do anything that goes against HIS WORD. May you rise each morning to hear GOD’S VOICE within your heart!

Strive and thrive daily to become “PERFECT” in the LORD! 

ABBA FATHER, WE DAILY RISE TO BLESS & THANK YOUR HOLY & DIVINE NAME. YOUR KINGDOM COME YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN! THANK YOU FOR OUR DAILY BREAD YOUR LIVING WORD!

 

For this we can rejoice and say, “THANK YOU HALLLLELLLUJAH!!! ”

A Sermon to Remember

See the source image
Mars Hill

A Sermon to Remember

Our journey to Athens Greece is one of the most memorable places we have ever traveled.  Perched high is MARS HILL; THE AREOPAGUS.  It overlooks this vivacious metropolis.  We were in awe of the very realization of the distinct historical ground that we stood upon. Here we were greatly humbled. Here we together praised, thanked and worshipped GOD for HIS marvelous creation.  Right in the midst of a plethora of people from all over the world.

Mars Hill is in Athens Greece.  It is here you will find the seat of the Ancient Athenian Court.  Today there are significant remnants of it that still remain.  It is currently being refurbished and fortified to preserve its historical relevancy.   Here is where most of the religious problems as well as crimes were judged in the New Testament Era. 

Two of the major leading schools of thought were that of the Epicureans and the Stoics.   They believed that there were many gods…  They in their spiritual blindness and ignorance worshipped idols.  They were both thought to be in possession of some of the first and foremost intelligent Greek philosophies of this era.  They differed in their beliefs somewhat. However; They both thought agreed and perceived that the Apostle Paul was a babbler.   They thought Paul to be strange because he preached to them about JESUS CHRIST and the RESURRECTION.

The Apostle Paul in turn thought them to be too superstitious. He had absolutely no doubt as to who GOD was.  He was led by the Spirit of God to give them the WORD! To enlighten them to the one and only true GOD he served, worshipped and lived for.

Here in the Book of Acts is a marvelous unforgettable sermon preached by the Apostle Paul that was proclaimed and spoken in order to bring attention to “The UNKNOWN GOD” they ignorantly spoke of.  The God whom they did not fully comprehend.  Yes, they referred to HIM, but they did not know that HE IS THE OMNIPOTENT ALMIGHTY HOLY GOD!  

It is emphatically clear here on Mars Hill the Apostle Paul undeniably speaks the profound life altering philosophical TRUTH!  One must take time to digest and embrace the majestic infallible Word that is revealed here.  

GOD does not live in Temples made by human hands.  Nor should we serve Him as though He needed anything.   IN FACT, IT IS ALL OF US WHO NEED HIM!

May we continue to meditate and ponder upon these enlightening passages of GOD’S infallible WORD! This is what Paul pronounces and brilliantly decrees and preaches to them.

THE APOSTLE PAUL ON MARS HILL; THE AREOPAGUS

“Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars Hill, and said. Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.

For as I passed by and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship HIM I declare unto you,

GOD that made the world and all the things therein, seeing that HE is LORD of Heaven and earth, dwelleth not in Temples made by hands;

Neither is worshipped with men’s (women’s) hands as though HE needed anything, 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 before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

That they should seek the LORD, if haply they might feel after Him, and find 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 our own poets have said. For we are also HIS offspring

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of GOD, we ought to not think that the GODHEAD is like gold, or silver, or stone, or graven art, and man’s device.  And the times of his ignorance GOD WINKED AT, BUT NOW COMMANDETH ALL Men (Women) EVERYWHERE TO REPENT…”

Acts 17

Here in this PROFOUND MESSAGE it is clear that GOD does not need any of us. Nor does HE need anything from us.   For it is HE that has given us all things including life and breath.  We all; men, women, boys or girls of every nation on the earth have one blood.   We ALL NEED THE LORD!  Each and every one of us are accountable to HIM!

WE ALL ARE TO SEEK THE LORD DAILY

The beauty of GOD’S WORD is it is living quick powerful and it IS THE TRUTH!  It is important to know GOD and HIS WORD for yourself.  GOD IS OUR MAKER & CREATOR!   Be ye always ready to give an answer for the hope that lies within you.   “Study to shew thyself approved unto GOD, a workman that needed NOT be ashamed, rightly dividing the WORD of TRUTH…  II Timothy 2

If you really want to be BLESSED; spend some quality time with the Lord in His Word! Being blessed really goes far beyond the material blessings… BLESSED BE THE GOD & FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO HATH BLESSED US WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST.” Ephesians 6 God continuously disburses His blessings as He sees fit or deems appropriate.

Wherever we are we can call upon the Lord in prayer 24/7. “Praying without ceasing” is a state of mind. How about denying yourself some time in the world… And set aside some time to listen intently to the Lord as He speaks to your heart in His Word. Allow Him to grow you in His grace, wisdom & understanding. Truly; HE CAN SET YOU FRE! Learn how to “BE STILL & KNOW!”

Today in this 21st century GOD IS SPEAKING VOCIFEROUSLY to HIS CHURCH, this world and all men, women boys and girls all around the world in many ways.   HIS MESSAGE IS STILL:  REPENT!!!

See what is happening all around us!

The plague and pestilence that has persisted throughout the world continues to take its casualties.   Each day the numbers escalate.  Across the globe.  “THIS Coronavirus pandemic DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE!”   The political divisions throughout the world continues to persist as well. The in-climate weather irregularities persist. The tension between the governing political parties at times have been somewhat disturbing. An uprising of racial discrimination continues to resurface. Nothing is new under the sun. 

GOD is never far from any of us. FOR HE IS OMNIPRESENT!  There is absolutely nothing that He is not aware of past, present or future.  Remember; Each day is a day to grow in His grace, wisdom and understanding.  As we actually embrace HIS WORD and implement it within our daily lives the FRUIT of HIS SPIRIT manifests and multiplies within us. We CAN and MUST STAND upon HIS WORD!  HOLY FATHER, WE THANK & PRAISE YOU AS YOU POUR OUT YOUR HOLY SPIRIT UPON US LORD GOD!

There is much going on in, around and about this world Christ Jesus spoke into existence.  Many are bypassing and overlooking GOD’S WORD and embracing the ways of the world.  Truly the Lord knows; Many of the ways of the world have also nested themselves in the midst of GOD’S CHURCH! LORD HAVE MERCY!    

Nothing is no longer sacred to many…  You can expect some of everything…  The WORD of GOD is being fulfilled.  No doubt the “Perilous Days” are upon us.  As believers we are to daily live as though we are really expecting CHRIST JESUS to return. 

This Message on Mars Hills reminds us of the importance of knowing GOD for ourselves.   This was true then, Now and will be so throughout eternity.

GOD Speaks to HIS CHURCH in Revelation

In Revelation GOD speaks to HIS CHURCH about what is happening and what is to COME! In all of the (7) seven Churches there was a need for improvement. The Church is the Bride of Christ! Each of them was told; “He that hath an ear, let Him hear what the SPIRIT saith unto the Churches.”  Revelation 1,2 & 3

“I JESUS have sent my Angel to testify unto you these things in the Churches, I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.  And the SPIRIT and the BRIDE say, COME. And let HIM that heareth say, COME.  And whosoever will let His/her take the water of life freely…” Revelation 22  

GOD is a just GOD! We can be sure at His appointed time He will bring to light what has been done in the dark.  He will right every wrong…

BECAUSE HE HATH APPOINTED A DAY, IN WHICH HE WILL JUDGE THE world in RIGHTEOUSNESS by that MAN whom HE hath ordained: whereof He hath given assurance unto all men/women that HE has raised HIM from the dead…”  Acts 17 

We can live and be confident every day knowing that in GOD’S time He will deal with everyone and everything justly.

“AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THE LAST DAYS, SAITH THE GOD, I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT; UPON ALL FLESH; AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND OUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS; 

AND ON MY SERVANTS AND MY HANDMAIDENS I WILL POUR OUT IN THOSE DAYS OF MY SPIRIT, AND THEY SHALL PROPHESY.  AND I WILL SHOW WONDERS IN HEAVEN ABOVE, AND SIGNS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, BLOOD AND FIRE AND VAPOR AND SMOKE.

THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS, AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THAT GREAT NOTABLE DAY OF   THE LORD COME; AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS THAT WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.”  Acts 2

So, let us not take time for granted. Let us live each day expecting our Lord Jesus Christ to return. For without notice; “in a twinkling of an eye” HE IS coming back for HIS CHURCH without spot or wrinkle.

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. Know this; upon your personal profession of faith and acceptance of CHRIST JESUS into your heart as your LORD & SAVIOR; SALVATION BY HIS GRACE & ETERNAL LIFE is a precious GIFT from ALMIGHTY GOD! You cannot pay, tithe or earn your way into Heaven. We are not “SAVED BY WORKS!” We are “SAVED BY GOD’S GRACE!” 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

http://alpha7.org/2018/10/12/we-are-gods-offspring-part-1/

Know who you are in the LORD!
