Deuteronomy 11:13-14“And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, 14 then I[a] will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil.”

124“It was by the confession and forsaking of sin, by earnest prayer and consecration of themselves to God, that the early disciples prepared for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. The same work, only in greater degree, must be done now. Then the human agent had only to ask for the blessing,

and wait for the Lord to perfect the work concerning him. It is God who began the work, and He will finish His work, making man complete in Jesus Christ. But there must be no neglect of the grace represented by the former rain. Only those who are living up to the light they have will receive greater light.

Unless we are daily advancing in the exemplification of the active Christian virtues, we shall not recognize the manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain. It may be falling on hearts all around us, but we shall not discern or receive it. The laborers will be qualified rather by the unction of His Spirit than by the training of literary institutions.

Here are “the times of refreshing” to which the apostle Peter looked forward when he said: “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and he shall send Jesus.” Acts 3:19, 20. (20 E.G.White)

”The power Christians should be looking for, can only come from within when we have decided, through God‘s Word and Spirit, to“…..lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb 12:1-2  AND LET US RUN WITH ENDURANCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US. Endurance is the key.

My friends our Faith must be stretched to the limit. But if we fail at the start of this race we will never be given greater light. A few years ago when I did my first 38239_113142418738184_5596974_ntriathlon the swimming being the first event before bicycling and running. Well at the time I was ill prepared for open water swimming.

I had only practiced in swimming pools. So when the event got started, about 50 feet into the swim, I heard a voice say, you will never make it, so that unknown voice made me very fearful of the unknown, or what it would take to finish the swim. So I called for the little boat to come get me.

As soon as I Arrived at the dock the officials, snatched the monitor off of my ankle, because I was not permitted to go any further in the race, since I had not completed the swim. My friends that is the same way with the Latter Rain if we have not studied God’s word,

and allowed His Spirit to Guide us through the Early Rain. We will never finish the Journey to the promise land. Because A lack of preparation, and faith will keep us frightened and IL prepared to go any further.

The next year I did Finish The race, because I studied, and practiced in open water. I even joined A triathlon Club that prepared my confidence in open water for the Journey to the finish line. My friends God wants to give us His power. For Paul tells us in,

2Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Friends He knocks at our hearts Door Daily Are we listening or is the TV up to loud for us to here Him. Have our FOCUS been constantly on the things of this world instead of the presence of the Good Shepherd. Today ask yourself.

imgresWhat keeps me from given it all to the Master, “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him” But it starts with Faith. For the latter rain is power the Savior places within us Through His Spirit To finish up His work in the final Days of This life’s History.

Soon My Friends Your Faith and God’s Spirit if you walk with Him Daily, will allow you to be the beneficiaries of the LATTER RAIN, as A revival will take place from within as you finish up God’s mandate to take the gospel to all the world. But today you must have A passion to seek the showers of the latter rain;

“for the latter rain will come, and the blessing of God will fill every soul that is purified from every defilement. It is our work today to yield our souls to Christ, that we may be fitted for the time of refreshing, the presence of the Lord, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit.”(White)


My friends as Children of the king. I hope, and pray, you are able to remain FOCUSED on this Journey we all must take, As God prepares to bestow upon us His Power of the LATTER RAIN. Remember the ending of this story will soon take place, it was set on Calvary When Christ said IT IS FINISHED. and the final credits will read. JESUS WINS, SATAN LOSES!!!


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY

Deuteronomy 11: 13-14 “And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, then I will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil.”


come away76“Many have in a great measure failed to receive the former rain. They have not obtained all the benefits that God has thus provided for them. They expect that the lack will be supplied by the latter rain.

When the richest abundance of grace shall be bestowed, they intend to open their hearts to receive it. They are making a terrible mistake. The work that God has begun in the human heart in giving His light and knowledge must be continually going forward.

Every individual must realize his own necessity. The heart must be emptied of every defilement, and cleansed for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit …”(E.G. White)

In Acts 3:18-20 it tells us “But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,  and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus.” 

My friends The TIMES OF REFRESHING. Those are the key words we as Christians must seek. starting first with the Early Rain, and there can be no either, or, when it comes to the Early, and Latter Rains.

The Early Rain God has promised to His faithful must  supersede  the Latter Rain. If our mission for the Master is to be completed in our lifetime. The Early Rain should be going on in our lives right now as we Allow the work of

holy spirit fire“God’s Holy Spirit each day to convict, instruct, guide and empower each believer in our churches just before the coming of our Savior Jesus Christ.” (M. Finley) And Friends there should not be any doubt, as we look at the world today,

that our Savior will soon be here. The question we all must ask ourselves is, will I personally be A leading vessel for Christ during this time. For Paul tells us in 2 Cor. 4:5-7 “For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

“The latter rain, ripening earth’s harvest, represents the spiritual grace that prepares the church for the coming of imgresthe Son of man. But unless the former rain has fallen, there will be no life; the green blade will not spring up.

Unless the early showers have done their work, the latter rain can bring no seed to perfection. There is to be “first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.”

There must be a constant development of Christian virtue, a constant advancement in Christian experience. This we should seek with intensity of desire, that we may adorn the doctrine of Christ our Savior.” (E.G.White)

My friends we have to make A decision today for tomorrow is not promised to us. And that decision must be. Do I allow God’s transforming power through His Spirit to take full control of my Character,

While becoming passionate about spreading the good news about Christ soon return, and how His presence has made a difference in your life, to your families, love one’s, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and a world that has lost it’s spiritual compass.

But we must be on one accord in MIND and BODY with Christ and the body of believers in our churches. For it was only when the Disciples came together on one accord  through God’s Holy Spirit that allowed the day of Pentecost to happen.

Acts 1:4 tells us “On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.”

 Acts 1:12-15 tells us further “Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mountimages of Olives, a Sabbath day’s walk from the city. When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying……They all joined together constantly in prayer….

then Acts 2:1-4 gives us the climax “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost,…

My friends as Children of the king. I hope, and pray, you are able to FOCUS through the Spirit of God the Journey we all must take if we are to endure what God is preparing for us. Salvation is free, but as Christians we show our love for the Master,

for The miracle of transformation that He has allowed to take place through His Word and Spirit in our lives. Today my God’s grace is still extended to each of us. But remember the ending of this story will soon take place, it was set on Calvary When Christ said IT IS FINISHED. and the final credits will read. JESUS WINS, SATAN LOSES!!!


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY

734399_431886196897621_1694844016_nToday I ask myself? should my faith and my love for my Savior who died on a cross for my sins be measured by whether I like your photo, slogan or post on Social Media. Each Day each of us including myself, generate devotionals, e-mails, text messages, chain-letter, Conference calls, etc, etc,. The world is now flooded with a click and share mentality towards Salvation.

Believe me God cares about every aspect of our lives. Luke 12:7 tells us But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. also in Ps. 139:15-16 it says “My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”  But As A Child of God I don’t believe the SOCIAL MEDIA is A high priority of my Savior if it does not involves our Salvation.

I really do Love Jesus more then life itself. So I ask myself, in creating A click and share, if you love Jesus, or a Chain-letter, would that really allow A fallen world that desperately needs the transforming power of God’s Spirit to know Him. Or does it just allow me to have a hands off approach to Christ Mandate to me when He tells His Children to.

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel.” My thoughts are, anything less, would Cheapen that command. “According to the first chapter of Acts, 120 believers met in the upper room on the day of Pentecost. This is a ratio of 1 Christian to approximately every 500,000 to 580,000 people in the empire.

From a human standpoint, Jesus’ command to preach the gospel to the world seemed unthinkable. The Christian church exploded in growth. Tens of thousands were converted. The message of Jesus’ love was carried to the remotest parts of the empire. It reveals that in a few generations Christianity had invaded nearly every level of society even in the remote provinces. “(Mark Finley)

And this was actually done without the Social Media. Millions died so a world could receive the good news of Christ Salvation Persecution of the Christians started with the Emperor Nero in the summer AD 64. At that time Christians were a small underground group among the slaves and poor people, making them the perfect scapegoat.

Nero blamed the fire of Rome on them, and ordered all Christians to be persecuted. Christians were thrown to wild beasts and eaten alive in arenas throughout the imagesempire, others were crucified. The more they killed the more the church grew. So Satan laid his plans to war more successfully against the government of God by planting his banner in the Christian church.

The great adversary now endeavored to gain by artifice what he had failed to secure by force. Persecution ceased, and in its stead were substituted the dangerous allurements of temporal prosperity and worldly honor. Idolaters were led to receive a part of the Christian faith, while they rejected other essential truths.

They professed to accept Jesus as the Son of God and to believe in His death and resurrection, but they had no conviction of sin and felt no need of repentance or of a change of heart. With some concessions on their part they proposed that Christians should make concessions, that all might unite on the platform of belief in Christ.

Most Christians consented to lower their standard, A union was then formed between Christianity and paganism. But thank God many Christians chose to die before they would deny their Lord. So the millions who did so came to be called MARTYRS, which means “WITNESSES.”

Matt. 24:9-14 says For……….Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. ….but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

walk-by-faith-the-strait-and-narrow-pathThat verse did not say all I would have to do is Click and share, or pass on A chain letter on to the next person, to show my love for Christ. It told me I will have to endure something that I know deep down in my heart I am really not prepared for right now.  So How do I prepare myself and others to Finish this race and endure until the end.

Well first Matthew tells us in Matt. 25:13 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.” Next in John 7:38-39 it says “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. By this he meant the Spirit,” Then in


Romans 10:17  it says “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” then in 1 Thess. 5:17 it tells me to”pray without ceasing;” Keep watch or stay FOCUS , being convicted of Gods Spirit, keep the faith through Gods word, and never stop praying. So my friends that is what it will take to endure till the end.


And once you have allowed Christ to transform your Character you will be convicted to tell others what Christ has done for you, as you spread the good news of Christ soon return. My friends The final Chapter of the Controversy between GOOD and EVIL Is being written Right now the climax will be at Jesus Christ Second Coming to take His faithful Children Home.


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY

Ezekiel 16:49-50 declares, “Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed 43-copy1and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me…”

As Christians we attempt to explain away the biblical condemnations of one sin over another. The area where Sodom and Gomorrah was, is now uninhabited wasteland. Sodom and Gomorrah serves as a vigorous example of how God feels about sin in general.

Satan would like for us to think, one sin in Sodom, was greater than the other. Isaiah tells us in Isaiah 64:6 “We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags.

Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind.” Paul also tells us in Galatians 5:19-21 “When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery,

hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division,  envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.”

JonahPreachingatNineveh-620x350God told Jonah to “Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.”  After Jonah got himself together, and finally did what God ask him to do in Jonah 3:4 it tells us

“Then Jonah began to go through the city one day’s walk; and he cried out and said, “Yet forty days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” So let me get this straight only 40 days to repent and be saved, or everyone will be destroyed.

My friends God did not categorize their offensives, or determine their destruction by social class, or race, for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, “ So we now go to Jonah 3:5 “The Ninevites believed God.

A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.” Key word here is ALL OF THEM the murderers, the fornicators, the thief’s, the liers. The adulterers, those who coveted, those who worshiped other Gods,

the homosexual, those who used the lords name in vain, those who did not keep the Sabbath, even the gossiper, Yes my friends All repented. And it did not take long, once you let Christ into your life He then takes full control.

The Ninevites did it in 40 days the man on the cross, in an instant. For others A lifetime “Then Peter said unto them, imagesRepent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” (Acts 2:38)

So today my friends if God gave you 40 days to repent and be saved where would you start, gossiping maybe, Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.”

What about wasting God’s time. Paul tells us in Ephesians 5:16-17 Making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” My friends I could continue,

But the question is not about the sin itself, but how, or when, do you give it all to the Master. When do we recognize what the psalmist tells us in Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.

When do we as sinners placed our life up against the Saviors and see how far we have to go to have the character, mind, and body of Christ as we seek His word and Spirit each day. For in Matthew 7:21-23 it tells us

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my matthew 24Father in heaven….” My friends I look at the world we live in today and tell myself Oh my God!!!

Everything I have been taught all of my life about what will happen right before the coming of the Lord is happening right before our eyes even as I write. Christ told us Himself in Matt. 24 “wars and rumors of wars, nation will rise against nation,

kingdom against kingdom,famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows…..Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come…… For then there will be great tribulation,

such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.”




So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY








Luke 24:41-43  And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, “Do you have imgresanything here to eat?”  They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate it in their presence.

Also Christ in keeping the Passover had to have eaten lamb and or goat. The Passover to Israel was A Holy Day commemorating the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt; it was a commanded assembly, that was mandatory.

So we have confirmed Christ ate meat, the bible does point that out, He ate fish, the Passover Lamb and maybe goat. But as Children of God, we must ask ourselves is eating animal flesh necessary for our physical mental and spiritual survival.

For In the beginning God gave our first parents Adam and Eve all the food necessary for a total Physical, Mental, adanand spiritual lifestyle, a lifestyle that would never cease to bring vitality and endurance to, the perfect anatomy that He had created in the likeness of Himself.

It was contradictory to His plan at creation to have the life of any creature taken. There was to be no death, or disease, in Eden. The fruit of the trees in the garden was all the nourishment required for man’s needs.

In creating man’s food on the third day when He said and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself after His kind: and God saw that it was good. The Lord showed what the best diet for his well-being was.

Only after the flood did God give man permission to eat animal food. Those individuals, who lived before the flood after man sinned, ate animal food to gratify their sinful lusts, and this continued until their cup of iniquity was full with God.

And He “repented that He had made man on the earth and it grieved Him at His heart. After the flood God permitted man to continue to eat animal food to shorten their sinful lives. Soon after the flood, mankind began to rapidly decrease in size, and in length of years.

It was never Gods will that we should gratify our appetites, by the killing of animals as a means of survival. If we are to be a peculiar people in God’s sight, we must exercise temperance in all things.

Health reform and the elimination of eating animals must be one of our main  priorities if we are to finish this Journey and endure to the end, as we finish this race in preparation to live throughout eternity with our Lord and Savior.

man eating1 Peter 2:11 tells us “Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.” Thus warfare is forever in battle between our propensities toward the lust of the flesh,

imperiled by the indulgence of appetites that is unsanctioned by heaven, and what Gods originally plan for our well being was intended for us from the beginning in the Garden of Eden. And If we would always focus on Paul’s words in

Romans 12:1,2 “I Beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.  And be not conformed to this world:

but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what that is good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Flesh was never the best food; but its use is now doubly objectionable, since disease in Animals is so rapidly increasing.

Christian today feel that they cannot get along without flesh foods; but if they would place themselves on the Lord’s side, forever walking in the way of His guidance, they would receive strength and wisdom as did Daniel and his fellow companions, in refusing to eat the king’s meat.

Many Christians would be surprised to see how much more healthy they would be by the self-denial of animal foods imagesas they keep their eyes stayed on the transforming power of Christ. My friends ask yourself today.

As A Child of God how do I prepare for Eternity,  Because Eden will be restored. For John tells us in Revelation 22:1-3 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city.

On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.


My friends all I ask of you today is to FOCUS on what preparation we as Gods Children  must make For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come.” We as Christians are all, now being tested, and tried in preparation for the final stretch to the finish line, as we look forward to receiving that ultimate prize, Gods pure and holy kingdom. All of us as Christian have been baptized into Christ abiding love and grace. And if we would act our part as Gods Children, by separating from everything that would diminish our health in the sight of God, and gain strength as we grow in Christ who is the foundation, and center, of our mind and body


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY




Sep. 25, 2012


The Daily Climb. I have always talked about getting to God’s pure and holy kingdom. The FAITH, FOCUS, LOVE, HUMILITY, AND ENDURANCE, each of us must develop within our character while maintaining a heartfelt prayer life, as we study God’s word daily while seeking  His Spirit. I have tried to give you and myself insight, and directions as we move closer into the final day’s of this life’s history. But I have never talked about once the JOURNEY IS OVER. And we can finally be at peace. And say I made it, the journey was rough but I ENDURED.


imagesWell let’s take a journey with Ms. White today “As we stand…..and all in solemn silence gazed on the cloud above as it draws nearer and becomes lighter, glorious, and still more glorious, till it is a great white cloud.

The bottom appeared like fire; a rainbow is over the cloud, while around it are ten thousand angels, singing a most lovely song; and upon it sits the Son of man. His hair white, and curly and lays on His shoulders; and upon His head are many crowns.

His feet has the appearance of fire; in His right hand is a sharp sickle; in His left, a silver trumpet….Jesus speaks: “Those who have clean hands and pure hearts shall be able to stand; My grace is sufficient for you.”

At this our faces light up, and joy fills our hearts. And the angels strike a note higher and sing again, while the clouds draw  nearer to the earth. “Then Jesus silver trumpet sounds, as He descends on the cloud, wrapped in flames of fire.

He gazes on the graves of the sleeping saints, then raises His eyes and hands to heaven, and cries, “Awake! awake! imagesawake! ye that sleep in the dust, arise.” Then there is a mighty earthquake. The graves are open, and the dead come up clothed with immortality.

The Redeemed shout, “Alleluia!” as we recognized our friends who had been torn from us by death, and in the same moment we are changed and caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air.

“We all enter the clouds together, and seven days ascend to the sea of glass, then Jesus brings the crowns, and with His own right hand placed them on our heads. He gave us harps of gold and palms of victory.

Here on the sea of glass His faithful Children stand in a perfect square… And we were all clothed with a glorious white mantle …. Angels are all about us as we marched over the sea of glass to the gate of the city.

Jesus raised His mighty, glorious arm, lays hold of the pearly gate, swings it back on its glittering hinges and says to us, “you have washed your robes in my blood, stood stiffly for My truth, enter in.” We all march in and fill that we have a perfect right in the city…….

7_heavenWe try to call up our greatest trials, but they looked so small compared with the far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory that surrounds us that we can not speak them out, and we all cry out, “Alleluia, heaven is cheap enough!”

we then touched our glorious harps and make heaven’s arches ring…. There we saw most glorious houses, most glorious to behold….”we see A field full of all kinds of flowers, and as we pluck them, we cried out, “They will never fade.”

Next we see a field of tall grass, most glorious to behold; it was living green and had a reflection of silver and gold, as it waved proudly to the glory of King Jesus…. Soon we heard Christ lovely voice, saying,

“Come, my people, you have come out of great tribulation, and done My will; suffered for Me; come in to supper, for I will gird Myself, and serve you.” We shout, “Alleluia! glory!” (From the writings of E.G. White)


A vision can never do justice to the reality of what God Has prepared for HIS FAITHFUL CHILDREN WHO WILL ENDURE TILL THE END for Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” My friends Christ calls, We still have GRACE for “Time measured out my days Life carried me along In my soul I yearned to follow God But knew Id never be so strong I looked hard at this world To learn how heaven could be gained Just to end where I began Where human effort is all in vain Were it not for grace I can tell you where Id be Wandering down some pointless road to nowhere With my salvation up to me”  (Larnelle Harris) But because of grace and Calvary. SALVATION AND HEAVEN IS OURS IF WE BELIEVE.

So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY



Sep 24,  2013


“Dear Heavenly Father, we come before you today in our hour of need, to ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your Grace, mercy, and guidance. We know in your Word it says, in Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” but we as a CHURCH and a SOCIETY and a NATION have done exactly that, and allowed our FOCUS to move from JESUS CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED TO SELF AND WHAT IS BEST FOR ME AND NOT THEE. We have lost our spiritual compass, and have Focused our values, toward the values of the god of this world. But today we ask  for your forgiveness, and pray that once again our focus will be placed on our Lord and Savior and His will for us. And through your WORD AND SPIRIT Our eyes will forever remain on Thee as we ENDURE THIS RACE to the FINISH LINE AMEN 


i8-bibleWe pray that each Adopted child of the king will search the Scriptures  “for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. John 5:39

Isaiah 8:20 says To the LAW and to the TESTIMONY! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

We as members of our various congregations in the last days of this life’s history must make it our responsibility to search the scriptures daily, as we seek God’s Spirit. Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 2:11 “For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.

And once we focus and allow the Spirit to take control and to guide and supervise our mind  then Paul tells us in 2 Timothy 2:15 to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Remember my Friends every Scripture in God’s word testifies about our Savior and what must be done to be saved, and receive Eternal life.

As Children of God we can not loose  sight of  the fact that SCRIPTURE AND SALVATION can not be Separated. The example each church and member should be bound to imitate is, Jesus Christ and Him crucified 1 Peter 2:21 says For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps.

We pray that our focus will be centered on Jesus Christ and Him Crucified and not on the things of this world. The United States and the world is controlled mostly by government and corporate money and people. Sin and Satan’s controlling influence Has taken control.

As the world loses sight of Christ saving grace, we as Christians have fallen into Satan’s trap, As we convince ourselves, I must obtain what Capitalism tells me is imgresimportant in my life instead of Christ.

“Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.” (John Maynard Keyne) “While God’s mercy bears long with the transgressor, there is a limit beyond which men may not go on in sin.

The time is coming when in their fraud and insolence men will reach a point that the Lord will not permit them to pass and they will learn that there is a limit to the forbearance of Jehovah, beyond which the judgments of Jehovah can no longer be delayed.(E,G, White)

My friends  in Matthew 6:33 it tells us “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” And if you don’t obtain it here on earth.

Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 2:9 (KJ21) But as it is written: “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

We pray for our nation who have exploited  the poor and told them. Your prayers will be answered if you play the lottery. In study after study, the researchers note that lotteries set off a vicious cycle that exploits low-income individuals’ desires to escape poverty.

Lottery-Tickets-kswx_29-630x407While it also directly prevents them from improving upon their financial situations. a disproportionate number of people who consistently buy lottery tickets tend to be lower-income and working-class people who can least afford it.

But when our states and cities lures the poor into these quick scheme money traps. God is not pleased and will hold us as a Nation responsible. The Bible’s position on how we treat the poor throughout its pages, interestingly, it has less to do with the poor than it has to do with us and how we treat them.

As Christians we know the only security we all have is in the loving arms of our Savior Jesus Christ  Psalm. 46:1 says God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

The state is now a partner with the gaming industry and all for the perverted attributes that goes into this industry. Everything from drunkenness, to crime and prostitution with the purpose of defrauding the poor and needed of our Nation.


Now I will ask our Churches regardless of Denominational standings, individual Christians, and politicians what are our responsibilities, or do we have any? You decide today as you ask for Gods direction, as we focus on entering God’s Pure ans Holy Kingdom.


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY

Praying for SafetyMy friends we need an OLD TIME INTERCESSORY PRAYER LIFE for others, as Paul had. Because no matter what the situation, or circumstances, his faith as A child of God, allowed him to look beyond, and to know God was always by his side.

“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8. So in knowing that, his concern moved away from self to his love and concern for others.

As GOD’S ADOPTED CHILDREN, we must also have that same type of OLD TIME INTERCESSORY PRAYER LIFE. Paul tells us in Col 1:24-25  “I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church…

To have that type of OLD TIME INTERCESSORY PRAYER LIFE we must have a day by day walk with God who strengthens our faith to withstand every trial in our life and still, look pass self, with the discernment to have a heartfelt prayer life for others.

To have A Genuine intercession for others we must bring the situation and circumstances of there problems, before prayer2God, until you personally are transformed by His attitude toward that person or circumstance you are praying for.

Intercession means to “rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions… Col. 1:24” My friends to allow this to happen, as an adopted child of God, we must place our self  in our Father’s place.

I should be so familiar with God, because of His presence in my life that His mind, character, and Spirit becomes a part of me, as I still have the humility of a child who still needs guidance and prayer himself, as I intercede for others before Christ.

My Friends personally, I am overwhelmed, and at the same time I rejoice at the thought of this Journey God has determined to place me on, as I seek His presence each day, and yet it keeps my relationship with God constantly growing as self dies daily.

52862255_910a0480bcFor “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:24 My friends our OLD TIME INTERCESSORY PRAYER LIFE is also about compassion for others through Christ.

Compassion for them, as you see through the eyes of  Christ, Sheep without a shepherd. Think of the number of people God has brought into your lives. That if you have not, you should be constantly having A OLD TIME INTERCESSORY PRAYER LIFE FOR.

And as we move closer to Christ soon return we must continue to ask God to increase our territory as our prayers for others must center on the basis of there need for,

Redemption, Repentance, Forgiveness, Hope, Healing And through our faith in God will create in others something He cannot create other than through our heartfelt OLD TIME INTERCESSORY PRAYER LIFE because

“If not you, I wonder where will they ever find the One who really cares? If not you, how will they find the One who imagesheals the broken heart, gives sight to the blind? Cause You’re the only Jesus some will ever see You’re the only words of life, some will ever read.

So let them see in you the One in whom is all they’ll ever need.” Ephesians 6:18 tells us “With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,”

Our example before us who had an OLD TIME INTERCESSORY PRAYER LIFE, were the original prayer warriors. Abraham, Moses, David, Samuel, Hezekiah, Elijah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel. All had A heartfelt INTERCESSORY PRAYERS LIFE,

With Christ as their example as the ultimate intercessor, for others, and because of Christ and His example, all children of God’s PRAYERS becomes intercession as we make our petition to God through Jesus Christ and Him Crucified.


Jesus presented our lives in the presence of His Father when He said it is finished. And because of Christ as the mediator on our behalf, we can now intercede in our prayers on behalf of others and A world marred in sin, by partitioning God to grant their requests And our prayers according to His will. “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5)


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY

Said Jesus in John 10:18 “No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.: I have power to lay it down, I have power to take it again.” it was Christ Choice to die. And so, when He felt the time was right, He gave up the Ghost!


ROADBUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES!!! Since the Beginning this was Christ Destiny When the words were repeated in Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” HE KNEW THE JOURNEY FOR HIM WOULD NOT END, UNTIL HE SAID, “IT IS FINISHED”

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES!!! Four thousands years later, John 1:11-14 tells us He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” A Babe in Bethlehem WHEN HE FIRST STARTED HIS JOURNEY FOR US. then 33 years later.

Thru the Jordan Trail “Down the Vía Dolorosa called the way of suffering like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, came the Messiah, Christ the King, But He chose to walk that road out of His love for you and me. Once it was Christ time HIS JOURNEY moves rapidly (1) The Last Supper (2)  The Garden of Gethsemane as Christ spends His last Hours praying to His Father, then Jesus is Betrayed and Arrested.

(3) The Religious Leaders Condemn Jesus (4)  6 am Jesus Stands Trial Before Pilate, He is then Sent to Herod. (5) 7 am Jesus Returned to Pilate, Jesus is Sentenced to Deathimages (6)  8 a.m. Jesus is Led Away to Calvary (7)  9 a.m.”The Third Hour” Jesus is Crucified on the Cross. The sequence of events That leads to the Death of our perfect Savior, Dying in A imperfect world.

HIS JOURNEY had many experiences, some good, some bad, But He never gave up He REMAINED FOCUSED ON HIS JOURNEY, as His life was continually threatened, unjustly tried and rejected as the Son of God Mark 14:61:64 tells us the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?”

“I am,” said Jesus. “And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven…….. “You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?” They all condemned him as worthy of death..” His mission is now belittled to that of A out of touch, Crazy street preacher, BUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES.

Slapped, brutalized, beaten, spit upon BUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES! Crowds looking on, rabble rousers are shouting, women weeping, hecklers mocking, soldiers harassing, His disciples abandon Him, “The principalities and powers of darkness were assembled around the cross, casting the hellish shadow of unbelief into the hearts of men,

in leading the people to believe Christ the chief of sinners, and to make Him the object of detestation. Those who mocked Christ as He hung upon the cross were imbued with the spirit of the first great rebel. He filled them with vile and loathsome speeches. He inspired their taunts. But by all this he gained nothing.” BECAUSE HE CONTINUED THIS JOURNEY FOR US (E.G. White Desire of ages pp. 760-761)

imagesNailed to A cruel cross Mark tells us in Mark 15:31-32 “In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! Let this Messiah, this king of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.”

It was the third hour when they crucified him,” that is, 9 o’clock. When “the sixth hour had come” (12 noon), darkness covered the whole earth, reflecting the betrayal at 12 midnight. After three hours of darkness, at 3 p.m., Jesus cried out IT IS FINISHED and gave up the ghost. ” BUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES!

His Last Breath, caused a drastic change in Nature. IT IS FINISHED caused the Light of the Sun to Go Out: the Sun was Darkened. IT IS FINISHED caused the Earth to go into Convulsions: the Rocks were torn apart; the Hill called Calvary Shook. IT IS FINISHED tore the Veil of the Temple BUT THE JOURNEY CONTINUES.

Two days later on A Sunday morning THE SON OF MAN RISES AGAIN AS THE JOURNEY CONTINUES! IT CONTINUES BECAUSE THIS JOURNEY, WE THE imagesADOPTED CHILDREN OF GOD NOW CONTINUE THROUGH CHRIST John 15:20 tells us “Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’

If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.” My friends, HIS FAITH, FOCUS, HUMILITY, GRACE, MERCY, LOVE, POWER, HOLINESS, ENDURANCE AND SPIRIT We all have obtained through Calvary if we believe.

2Peter 1:3 tells us “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” Paul also tells us in 1Cor. 15:57 “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” My friends Matt 24 let’s us know THIS JOURNEY WILL END SOON


Revelation 22:11-14 warns us. “Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy.” “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. My friends PLEASE GIVE IT ALL TO THE MASTER TODAY, HE HAS TRAVELED THIS JOURNEY, HE CAN GUIDE YOU TO HIS PURE AND HOLY KINGDOM.

So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY

Isaiah 58:12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.


wallAs Christians it is time we all come together, look back at the foundation upon which we built our faith on when Christ first came into our lives, and take A oath to love even when there is diversity and  separation 0f opinions with all, in the body of Christ, as we become restorer’s of the path God has placed us on, as we seek His presence in our lives each day.

For Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:19-22 “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.

In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.”

And as A Church of one body, each member are repairers of the breach, And there must be a propensity within each member whose focus is on God’s kingdom to restrict everything that keeps the body of Christ from being empowered with the grace and mercy of A risen Savior. My Friends one God one body united through love.

For Colossians 3:14-16 tells us “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, imagessince as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.” My friends reconciliation and restoration are part of God’s building Blocks as we approach the last days of this life’s history.

A change from within must occur that focuses our attention away from self to A tolerance of love and humility using Christ as our example. Each member in the body of Christ are at different levels on This Journey God has placed us own but the destination does not change.

the blood and love of our Savior will be the bond of every Child of God who will sit together At that banquet table of the redeemed in Gods pure and holy kingdom. For in Matthew 26 it tells us “Now when evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the twelve disciples”

………as He tells them “But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” MY FRIENDS, ONE TABLE, ONE GOD, AND ONE BODY OF BELIEVERS who loved one another, stayed focused, allowed God’s Word and Spirit to Guide, and endured till the end.

For we are all adopted Children of God born into the family of righteousness. Ephesians 1:3-5 tells us Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.

Israel  longed for God to return them to their own land and rebuild the walls and the temple. They were broken and desperately wanted some sort of revival that would make them once again Gods favorites. But in Isaiah it seems to indicate that they were not willing to be repairers of the breach, by allowing Christ, total access, to there mind and body.

imgresIsaiah tells us in Isaiah 9:1-2 “Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.” For to long we as Christians have allowed the world to be the foundation for how we build our relationships in the body of Christ.

But, each individual must be his or her own diplomat, And once it becomes A personal challenge to restore the breach, we will see the revival for which we have been asking for in our lives, and in the body of Christ.



“Then your light will break forth like the dawn and your healing will quickly appear; your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard…. You will be like a well-watered garden, a spring whose waters never fail…. You will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.” I as A Child of God have A passion to be The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. I want to be God’s messenger as I present the good news of Christ soon return. as I keep my footing and faith forever focused on our Savior “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” 1 Cor. 3:11
