Romans 7:17-20 “As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.”


1. THE LOCATION;  Anywhere we as Children of God can go back to, when Satan had total control over our life,  At a time when we were out of control, a SLAVE TO SIN.

Civil+War+Era+Slave+Sale+Enacted+St+Louis+rMHBHqvS7AQl2. THE AUCTIONEER; Starts the bid by asking for the lowest price he can get, because at this point in our life we are valuable to no one. sin has taken its toll on the mind and body. The auctioneer would even barter for some goods if he could get someone to take the bait. A fallen Man or Woman he shouts out, a perfect SLAVE TO SIN, capable of doing exactly what you ask of him as long as SIN can control their MIND, AND BODY. We now stand without hope, with no joy, about to be sold to the highest bidder. We then look back over our life when we first became a SLAVE TO SIN, we had the world in the palm of our hands, or so we thought, but now look at us a sad excuse even for a SLAVE on the auction block, as you bow your head in shame Someone steps forward as the  auctioneer say’s what is your bid sir for this almost perfect SLAVE TO SIN. That’s strange THE BIDDER doesn’t say a word, He only holds up His hands, now He is pointing to a scare on his brow as He pushes back his robe and shows a deep imprint in his side, no words are exchange, but  the chains that are on my hands, and feet mysteriously falls to the ground.

3. THE BUYER then tells me I am a free man or woman, I have never seen this Person before but I do recognize the jesus-christ-ressurected-110voice, and then tears begin to flow down my cheeks as I realize I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED BY LOVE. “All to Jesus I surrender All to Him I freely give I will ever love and trust Him In His presence daily live. All to Jesus I surrender Humbly at His feet I bow Worldly pleasures all forsaken Take me, Jesus, take me now.”

Yes my friends once I realized the price Christ paid for me just to be able to come before you today and say I have been REDEEMED, brings a “PASSION WITHIN MY HEART that I have never known before.” And once He came into my life, I NOW FREELY SURRENDER it all to the MASTER, and as I die daily, I truly know through my faith and His grace what it means to be FREE.

So why wouldn’t I praise Him day and night. For I am a personnel witness to how far he came to the auction block I was on, just to set me free so now “(I), count myself dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore (I) do not let sin reign in (my) mortal body so that (I) will continue (to) obey its evil desires. (And  I) Do not offer any part of (myself) to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather (I) offer (myself) to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and (I) offer every part of (myself) to him as an instrument of righteousness. For sin shall no longer be (my) master….” Romans 6:11-14

tumblr_mlrwjyBzgw1rgtq41o1_500My friends “God paid a very high price for your SALVATION, so don’t be ENSLAVED by the Sins of this world.” 1 Cor 7:23 Today the world is at its worst “but GOD’S GRACE still pleads at the AUCTION BLOCK FOR ALL SINNERS THAT ARE BOUND BY SIN TO PERDITION. So please remember “Jesus loves you this I know for the Bible tells me so”  more than we could ever imagine, and only when we actually see with our own eyes what Christ gave up for our salvation will we be able to know the price that was paid for US ON THE AUCTION BLOCK.



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

“when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

pay-pal-31The world population is estimated  7.127 billion and out of that 7 billion you have 2.18 billion Christians or 32%  or roughly 1/3 of the population. But I have no doubt if that many people had allowed the Spirit of God to transform their character like our Savior we would have been in the kingdom years ago.

Matthew 7:21 tells us “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. And the Angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, His mandate was to go to war against the Midianites “And I will be with you God tells Him”

“Then the Spirit of the Lord came on Gideon, and he blew a trumpet, summoning the men of Israel to arms, 32,000 headed the call. But God told him it was to many, they would only claim victory for themselves instead of recognizing that it was God.

Then Gideon ask if anyone “trembles with fear” or were concern about home and family can leave. 22,000 returned imagesHome leaving only 10,000 Luke 14:26 tells us “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.

God then told Gideon “There are still too many men. Take them down to the water, and I will thin them out for you there. If I say, ‘This one shall go with you,’ he shall go; but if I say, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ he shall not go. ”For the Lord, Knows our true Character “He examines each of us…He knows our thoughts before we think them” Ps 139:1-2

So that shook out another 9,700 leaving only 300 hundred faithful soldiers. My friends the prince of darkness goal is not to sift the chaff for they already belong to him, because he knows there foundation is not centered on the word of God and His Spirit, because they are forever willing to compromise God’s precepts with the forces of evil’s “SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE SINS.”

But His goal is to sift the wheat who is God’s true followers, His elect, like the chosen 300. The one’s who searches there soul, while dying to self daily. And like God’s chosen 300, He takes pride in his faithful and because of that, Satan will use whatever means necessary to try and destroy their Character.

imagesBut God’s faithful knows they “can do all things through Christ, because he gives each of us strength.” Phil. 4:13. But my friends the faithful do get tired, and the stress levels do get high, but God’s faithful endures as they continue to stay focused, and hold onto the promises of God, and His Spirit, as there faith prepares them for the promise land.

In Isaiah 40:29 it tells us “He gives strength to those who are tired and more power to those who are weak.” Also in Heb. 13:5 it says “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” Heb. 13:5 I love the NEVER LEAVE THE, because that takes us all the way to our eternal destination which is the kingdom of God.

If you read Judges 6 you will see Gideon, and his three hundred faithful never had to lift a finger to fight the battle for repentancethe battle was God’s from the beginning to win. But Gideon, and his men’s real commission was to only carry torches in their left hand, while holding in their right hand trumpets, as they blew and shouted “A sword for the Lord.”

My friends the war Christ won on Calvary for us. He is only asking us to go out into all the world starting with our families, friends, and love ones, then our neighbors, and co-workers and then a world who has trampled on God’s precepts, and spread the good news of the saving power of Christ as you seek others to join the army of the redeemed. So my friends like Gideon, take your torches which is the Spirit of God, and your sword which is the word of God and blow your trumpets which is the sounding cry for all to come out of Babylon “as you preach the gospel to everyone” Mark 16:15


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

urlSynopsis of George Washington Proclamation for Thanksgiving  1779

1.   it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of ALMIGHTY GOD,

2.   to recommend to the people of the United States A DAY OF PUBLIC THANKSGIVEN AND PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of ALMIGHTY GOD,

3.  to be devoted by the people of the states to the service of THAT GREAT AND GLORIOUS BEING WHO IS THE BENEFICENT AUTHOR OF ALL THE GOOD THAT WAS, THAT IS, OR THAT WILL BE,

4.   that we may then ALL UNITE IN RENDERING UNTO HIM, our sincere and humble thanks FOR HIS KIND CARE AND PROTECTION of the people of this country (164 words)


Synopsis of President Obama’s Proclamation for Thanksgiving 2013images

1.   we honor the spirit of President Abraham Lincoln, who called on his fellow citizens to “fervently implore the interposition of the ALMIGHTY HAND TO HEAL,

2.   IN THE YEAR OF THE LORD two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-eighth. (424 WORDS)


My friends this is where we are today after 225 years two very distinct thanksgiving Day proclamation’s, 1779, and 2013. But  there should be no doubt in anyone’s mind as you focus on the distinction that God has decayed considerable in our world, and also in the minds of most individuals.

For “the love of many has grown cold” as we enter the threshold of our Saviors return. As a Child of God we must recognize the decline of the knowledge of God all around us and tell yourself that God is not leaving this world, but the world is leaving God.

But you must also tell yourself that the God we serve also tells us “all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet” THANK GOD FOR GRACE.  Paul tells us in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD, HAVING THE APPEARANCE OF GODLINESS, BUT DENYING ITS POWER…”

But once again “all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yetTHANK GOD FOR GRACE. My friends we Hourglass Sand Timer Beach Sunriseare on the borders of the promise land, and knowing God is not a criteria in today’s society therefore there is a lack of the knowledge of God, and the transforming power of His Word and Spirit.

The knowledge of God is almost extinct, so to proclaim the name of God is taboo, especially when you see the Presidents of the greatest country in the world we live not even mention God once in His Thanksgiving Day Proclamation. 

But again “all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yetTHANK GOD FOR GRACE. The world has demoted God’s precepts to the point where sin is not sin, if it is a “SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE SIN”  fornication ACCEPTABLE, cheating on your income tax ACCEPTABLE, knowingly buying stolen goods ACCEPTABLE, homosexuality ACCEPTABLE, TV, TV, and more TV ACCEPTABLE.

My friends you get the picture but “the wages of sin is still death, but only God can give the free gift of eternal life” So THANK GOD FOR GRACE. Now let’s take a few minutes and focus on the meaning of Thanksgiving, and once you have done that I pray you will never let another day go by without FALLING ON YOUR KNEES IN DEEP REPENTANCE AND HUMILIATION  as say THANK YOU GOD, telling Him  if it were not FOR YOUR GRACE  “I can tell you where Id be, Wandering down some pointless road to nowhere With my salvation up to me.”


So As Children of God it is our responsibility to MAKE OUR OWN PROCLAMATION as you allow God’s dreamstime_11119857Spirit to lead you into spreading  the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ to a world, that is gradually RUNNING OUT OF GOD’S GRACE, Please tell everyone about the free gift of Salvation and that their is still hope, and that God’s blood was shed for all, and that God’s Word is adequate enough through His Spirit to guide all who has the desire, safely to a place “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.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 HAPPY THANKSGIVING MY FRIENDS. AND THANK GOD FOR GRACE.

tumblr_lf6btymqnG1qfg3voo1_400My friends the cross has so many elements for our Salvation, GRACE, MERCY, HOPE, RIGHTEOUSNESS BY FAITH, JUSTIFICATION, and SANCTIFICATION which takes us through all of these elements because as I see it SANCTIFICATION is a process that starts when we first hear the name Jesus Christ, all the way to Calvary, the resurrection, and then His ascension to start His priestly duties on our behalf because Sanctification is not a process that happens over night, but a lifetime of moving towards the kingdom as we die daily to self while allowing the transforming power of God’s spirit to lead us on A journey that takes us on a visionary goal SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW!!! All the way To the PROMISE LAND.

A mother once approached Napoleon seeking a pardon for her son. The emperor replied that the young man had committed a certain offense twice, and justice demanded death. “But I don’t ask for justice,” the mother explained. “I plead for mercy.” “But your son does not deserve mercy,” Napoleon replied. “Sir,” the woman cried, “it would not be mercy if he deserved it, and mercy is all I ask for.” “Well, then,” the emperor said, “I will have mercy.” And he spared the woman’s son.

Throughout our sinful lives we will continually “fall short of the glory of God”, but that is where MERCY, plays such a vital part in our Salvation and visionary goal SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW!!! But frist, no one can be granted this MERCY AND HOPE without the part we each play in this whole scenario which is REPENTANCE OF OUR SINS, where we imgresthen receive righteousness by our Faith in the belief that Jesus Christ and the blood He shed for us will have MERCY, on a sinner like you and I and grant us a  pardon.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 Because the blood of Calvary JUSTIFIES or gives Our Father the right to say JUSTICE has been served.

So today My Friends MERCY pleads as our HIGH PRIEST, ADVOCATE, INTERCESSOR, MEDIATOR and GREAT HIGH PRIEST stands before the Father, and holds his hands up, saying this is the evidence. Your Son has paid the ultimate price.

And what’s so great about this whole process for our SALVATION is the Father and the Son are on record as being united on all issues relating to our Salvation. So today I need you to Ignore Satan, and focus totally on Christ and just compare your life to the pure and holy life of Christ, and then tell yourself OH MY GOD WHERE DO I START.

imagesYou defeated Satan for 33 years, but I plead that you only give me your strength and grace to accomplish that feat one day at a time.  “My grace is sufficient for you, He says, for my power is made perfect in weakness….” 2 Cor. 12:9

Oh what a promise, through His POWER I am made Perfect. My friends what that tells me is, our ADVOCATE gives us the power of the cross through His mercy and grace. He is the Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end 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 12:2

And now Philippians 1:6 takes us a little further OVER THAT RAINBOW which says “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” My friends studying the Bible is such a joy when you add up all the pieces and it gives us such a visionary goal SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW!!! TO THE PROMISE LAND.


Through the cross His redeemed becomes CONQUERORS and one day very soon our visionary goal imagesSOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW!!! Will become a reality and our God will stand and say to His Son it’s time let’s go get our faithful Children. And with “ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands…. every eye will behold the Prince of life. No crown of thorns now mars that sacred head; but a diadem of glory rests on His holy brow. His countenance outshines the dazzling brightness of the noonday sun.” (White ) “And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, King of kings, and Lord of lords.” Revelation 19:16. My Friends A VISIONARY GOAL SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW!!! TO THE PROMISE LAND.

”.…Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned….” John 8:2-11


“Who was this women caught in Adultery, The bible only refers to her as “a woman” most New Testament scholars believe this woman was the same as Mary Magdalene and Mary of Bethany. First  some history on Ms. Magdalene. She traveled with Jesus as one of His followers.

The Gospel describes her as courageous, and brave enough to stand by Jesus in his hours of suffering, death and resurrection. Jesus also cleansed her of “seven demons”, Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons.” Mark 16:9

Next we have Mary of Bethany, the sister of Martha and Lazarus who Christ raised from the dead “Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair. John 11:1-2

So Today my friends I am going to use my creative license and say The ladies are one in the same and I will let you do your own research. But what I need each of you to focus on today is your life as you go back and take a detailed inventory on how many times you refused to die daily through Christ, but allowed the forces of evil to dictate to you what His world deems as right or wrong.

To most of us we only have to go back as far as the dinner table after church where the gossip out of our mouths was imgresflying from one end of the table to the next, or maybe just yesterday when you bought that bootleg DVD from the man in front of the store where you go to waste God’s money buying lottery tickets, or maybe it was last night when you got home from work, and spent a relaxing evening in front of the TV wasting God’s time watching any and everything but never opening your bible once.

My friends I can go forever naming minor offences that we don’t really consider sin, but my friends they are sin, and they are deplorable in the sight of God. “and the wages of sin is still death.”

In today’s society the line between Good and evil has been so blurred to the point where most Christians don’t recognized MULTIPLE SIN DISORDERS OR (MSD) because everyone does it, so it must be right Isaiah tells us in Is. 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

THE WOMAN WITH, MULTIPLE SIN DISORDERS OR (MSD) Christ gave her mercy when he told her to “sin no more.” And still seven times she had allowed Satan to pull her back to where God had saved her from. But she never stop dying daily to self, she never stop searching for the master as she allowed the transforming power of God’s spirit to eventually take full control.

Mary Magdalene stayed behind after going to the tomb and finding Jesus was not there, even when Peter and John left urlthe tomb because She wanted to find out what had happened to Jesus. So she waited, only a touch she lone for, and because of her faithfulness she was the first to see Jesus alive, because she never stop searching, never given up, never getting tired, so she endured till the end, as she focused on her goal which was to find Jesus and she did.


Jesus rewards all who seek with sincerity of heart through His Spirit especially those WITH, MULTIPLE SIN DISORDERS OR (MSD) Jesus could have appeared to any one He choose but he choose a social outcast a demon possessed prostitute who was “saved by grace” to be the first to see his face after his resurrection. Oh what a honor. My friends our Savior came to seek and save the lost, and if He can save “a woman”/ Mary Magdalene /Mary of Bethany” of MULTIPLE SIN DISORDERS OR (MSD) He can also save you and I.



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

“And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.” Gen. 32:26

“All who desire the blessing of God, as did Jacob, and will lay hold of the promises, as he did, and be as earnest and persevering as he was, will succeed as he succeeded. There is so little exercise of true faith and so little of the weight of truth resting upon many professed believers because they are sluggish in spiritual things. They are unwilling to make exertions, to deny self, to agonize before God, to pray long and earnestly for the blessing, and therefore they do not obtain it. That faith which will live through the time of trouble must be daily in exercise now. Those who do not make strong efforts now to exercise persevering faith, will be wholly unprepared to exercise that faith which will enable them to stand in the day of trouble.” (E.G. White Story of redemption)


“For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” The wrestling match of the century. But why would God the King of the universe, want to portray himself as weak. You  mean a created being took on the Great I AM and won? Not Wrestling-with-God-600x350hardly, But I am sure God places this event in the pages of the historical events of His Word, wanting us to focus on the struggles each of us would encounter through our short probationary period on this earth from birth to death.

Each day our problems moves up in a designated weight class and as we get older the main event always gets more and more dramatic, the trials more precise, Problems, situations, the injustice of life, a disobedient child, a drunkard husband, and the list goes on.

So now that I have placed each of us in the ring with God as our opponent. How can we win like Jacob. Well first of all Jacob was prepared, remember he is going up against the great I Am, so there must be daily preparation. My friends we cannot come to the fight, lacking in faith and prayer, intemperate in our eating habits, or maybe just “having a form of godliness but denying its power”

Like Goliath who went into the ring with the Lord’s Anointed with only a sword, a spear and a javelin. My friends weimgres must be prepared to endure through faith and God’s Spirit until God gives us the victory. “If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” Matt 7:11

And also we must never focus our attention on the timing of why we haven’t succeeded against God because a lack of patience is only a lack of faith remember Jacob fought all night 2 Peter 3:9 tells us “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

My friends we must always remember God is preparing us for greater fights against the enemy, fights we are unprepared to handle right now. For there will come a time in each of our lives, such has not been since the beginning of the world until this time….” Matt 24:21-22

blessed-hope-jesus-return-4_n1So what I’m trying to get you to focus on today is, it may come a time when the presence of God is veiled from our face, and it will only be our faith, and the promises of God that we have constantly studied in His word that will give us the strength to continue.

“And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved. And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him…”Gen32:30-31 What hope for each of us, “and the sun rose upon him.” Like God’s Son who rose on the cross for our sins. One day soon we will be able to say we saw God face to face and it was our daily encounter with God that will allow us to look up and see the Son of God above us “and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1 Thess 4:16-17


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

2 Corinthians 3:18 “And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit”


world_war_3WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION, Is a phrase we have all become accustomed to hearing, Webster tells us these are weapons that can cause indiscriminate death or injury on a large scale, . But my friends I am here to tell you today that Satan developed WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION over 6000 years ago.

This WEAPON of Satan and the forces of evil was FORMED with only one objective, to fight against the very foundation of Gods government because Satan’s WEAPON strikes at the very core of God’s precepts, which is based on love, righteousness by faith, Prayer, grace, mercy, hope, and endurance.

But my friends the war is over, Satan’s WEAPONS no longer has any affect on God’s faithful, and the war was won by the shedding of the blood from only one victim Jesus Christ, but it was shed for all who had the desire to be a part of the army of the living God who has promised us through our faith, not DESTRUCTION, BUT ETERNAL LIFE.

What I am trying to tell you today is, the war was FOUGHT and WON on Calvary, but there is still a battle going on forimages our Mind and body. But my friends we can all claim victory through prayer as we allow God’s Spirit access to us through our faith, and God’s word.

Now the decision we must make today is will we allow God’s transforming power to take effect as we begin to recognized that the war is over, and that NO WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION or “army may succeed against us for “Our heart’s shall not fear; Though WAR may rise against me, In this I will be confident. Ps 27:3 because my faith tells me My God won the war for all sinners.

But first we must take on the character of the CONQUEROR, who’s inauguration speech while on the cross was only three words IT IS FINISHED. But now we must allow God’s Spirit to give us the power of the Cross and the Character of our Savior to be like Him, so we can also claim VICTORY by telling Satan the war is over.images

And in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” Romans 8:37 My Friends that promise of love tells us we can give all of our battles to the master and win if we have faith.  Because each battle is a battle of the mind, and if I allow Satan to make me fill this war is not over.

And that his world, and his WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION still have a chance to win, while using his  favorite line. You can be a part of his world and receive everything you have ever wanted “if you will fall down and worship the god of this world.” THEN HE WINS, WE LOOSE, BUT THE WAR IS STILL OVER.

So my friends stay focus and “choose you this day whom you will serve” because Satan is the “Father of lies” but our Savior gives us a choiceblack-woman-praying to choose good over evil, love over hate, and eternal life over destruction. And once we choose Christ, through his love, we begin to take on the Character of the one who gave it all for you and I.

And it starts, by Understanding and knowing God and His word which is the process by which God’s character will be cultivated in us. But it must be a daily process, and in so doing, we become “….children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2

So let’s all continued to hold on to the promises “that No WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION that is formed against thee shall prosper.” For The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.  Great is the LORD in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations.  Let them praise your great and awesome name he is holy.  The King is mighty, he loves justice you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right.  Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy. And my friends He has defeated Satan and his WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

Phil. 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”


imagesTwelve years old, not realizing that Nov. 22. 1963 I would became a part of history. School was let out, for a few hours to allow a couple hundred students from kindergarten to the twelfth grade the opportunity to walk the mile or so downtown for the parade to witness the President drive by with his motorcade. It was a beautiful day, when life was simple, fun, and uncomplicated.

We did see the president. But on our way back a gentleman walking also, stop to tell us the president had been shot. By the time we got back to school, it seemed the whole student body was in an uproar, students were crying, and screaming, even teachers could not hold back there emotions.

urlBut what I remember most about that day in history, wasn’t seeing the President, but watching my mother who was the principle, take charge, and calm THE STORM of an entire school who truly felt a deep lost.

As I return to that day, she reminded me of Presidents who I have witness many times since CALM THE STORM of our country right after a great tragedy. What a great memory that will forever be imprinted into my mind. To have those qualities I have no doubt you must also be calm before THE STORM arrives, which my mother always was.

So I now go to Matthew 8:23-27 “And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: imgresbut he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a GREAT CALM.”

In the presence of Christ and still fear the STORM. But how many of us are in THE STORMS of life each day, and like the disciples we question God weather He recognizes THE STORM we are in. Matthew also tells us the boat was covered with the waves, just like our every day problems which seems forever overwhelming, and out of control.

But if your plans are to make it to the finish line you must “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear….for it is the Lord your God who goes with you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 My friends the promises of God for each of our STORMS starts in Gen 3:15 when He assures us how He will deal with Satan, all the way through to the last verse of the bible Rev. 22:20 when his promise tells us “Surely I am coming Quickly”

But in order for God’s promises to sustain us in the STORM we must know they exist, and that we can reach imagesback knowing the same God is on the throne that CALMED OUR STORM in the pass as we continue to strengthen our faith knowing God’s Spirit will make each promise personal, just for our situation, circumstances, and Character.

Going back to the disciples, that same day they were witnesses to the Master’s power as He cleanse a leper, spoke the words that healed the Centurions servant of palsy, healed Peters mother-in-law among many others, and cast out demons. And their faith still shattered at the first sign of A RAGING STORM.

This should tell each of us the importance of prayer, and the study of Gods word which is forever a reminding testimony in our minds as to the power of God, and what he has done for us in the pass, and what He will do for us today, and what he will do for us in the future to sustain us as we allow our focus to always be centered on our Savior as He gives us the strength through His Spirit to WEATHER THE STORM as we rest in the comfort and protection of His loving arms until we can see Him face to face for He promises us.

“I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them.” Is.42:16 EVEN IN THE STORM

Heaven is Cheap enough!  Yes my friends For you and I it is cheap, But oh what a cost to our Savior who had the PASSION to give it all for us.


PASSION, How do you define such a feeling, or an attitude. Going to Webster it describes the word as a powerful or compelling emotion or feeling as love or hate. Which if nothing else explains the great controversy between good and evil.

A-Review-of-The-Passion-of-Christ-Movie-CoverBut today I seek THE PASSION OF CHRIST, and not what the world or the opposing side defines as Passion, but what I seek, I hope we all, which is the PASSION OF THE CROSS AND WHAT IT TOOK FOR OUR SALVATION.

Each of us have probably had a Damascus road experience Like Paul where you had a passion for the opposing side, but by the grace of God that all changed because our God saw something that allowed each of us a chance to fill through His Spirit what real PASSION was truly like.

Paul tells us “But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ. Philippians 3:7-8

Reading that text gives each of us hope, because it lays out a road map that starts with the willingness to deprive ourselves of all earthly gain including friends and family for the PASSION OF CHRIST. But where do we start.

I don’t think there is a written or oral examination on how I seek and find the PASSION OF CHRIST, because to be imageswilling to give it all for the Master is asking a lot. Do I start by selling all I have, do I stand on the corner and scream Jesus Christ and Him Crucified, do I set myself on fire all in the name of the Master.

I mention those extreme measures because throughout history people have done everything imaginable for a cause, and placed Christ name in front of it. But My friends the true PASSION OF CHRIST, that feeling and attitude, that Christ has ask each of us to seek, will lead to our ETERNAL DESTINATION which begin at creation to Calvary and will go throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.

But if you are a Child of God it really is not hard to find the PASSION OF CHRIST for it is all in His WORD and His WORD along. For In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

dreamstime_4732909Because without the word there is no PASSION, OR HOPE FOR SALVATION, as we allow the Spirit to guide, while allowing the Word to become our roadmap to the PASSION CHRIST FELT and the PASSION WE SEEK.

And not a false Passion that Satan presents to us that will lead to perdition. “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 2 Cor 4:17 It is promises like that my friends where I find THE TRUE PASSION OF CHRIST.

But as I pursue this PASSION this is what drives me to follow Christ, and not what my Savior can give me in His treasure chest of blessings, it is very easy to seek all the gifts that God gives to His children while forgetting about the true treasure which is His PRESENCE, AND PASSION IN OUR LIFE.

And once we have obtained this PASSION, then comes  discipleship which takes us back to Paul who says he is willing totumblr_lf6btymqnG1qfg3voo1_400 give it all up for the Master remember the PASSION OF CALVARY was not about the blessings of our life that Christ gives us, the beautiful home, cars, great job and a  lovely family.

But the PASSION OF CHRIST ON CALVARY, was about given us all an opportunity for a PASSIONATE RELATIONSHIP with our Creator. And then telling others of His Love and grace and eternal life. But remember at the same time Satan will be telling you “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.”

Which is a false hope, my friends, true PASSION  is “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily. As you allow the Word and God’d Spirit to direct you to the TRUE PASSION OF CHRIST

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16


My friends God is challenging us today, to go beyond OUR FAITH BOUNDARIES as we seek our ETERNAL DESTINATION, GOD’S KINGDOM.  So today let’s focus on the four Babylonian captives in Daniel chapters 1 and 3.

Daniel and his three companions Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Only these four captives out of all of Israel are mention as never wavering in their faith, and maintaining allegiance to God throughout their captivity. Their first faith RH-DanielAndFriendsBeforeKing_09challenge was with the “Daily provision of the king’s delicacies, and wine that came from his table.” But as representatives of God, they knew His health requirements. “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

So they present God’s diet plan, and make a request “Please test your servants for ten days, and give us vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then the king interviewed them, none were found like Daniel and His companions. My friends what I need to let you know, only when you step out in faith will you have the Character and strength to go to the next level.

Remember with greater faith comes greater grace. There need never be asked “You of little faith, “why did you doubt?” God then allows Satan to help in producing strong characters. By putting God’s faithful through Satan’s sifting process.

But the good Shepherd tells us in John 10:14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me” So nowRH-FieryFurnaceHarlan their  faith takes them beyond there FAITH BOUNDARIES when a day was appointed for all the multitudes to bow to an “idolatrous symbol of human power.”

But the faithful need never compromise, because they have been tested in the flames of affliction before. My friends we must always stand firm for God. Remember we are not being challenged but God Himself. So their message to the King was short, and to the point “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.

If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand.” As I study God’s word no other phrase inspires me like the one’s that comes next. Oh King, BUT IF NOT.

My friends that is the place I am working daily to get to when I can look kings and rulers in the face and say BUT IF NOT, let it be known to you, that we still will not serve your gods, nor worship the gold image which you have set up.”

My friends this is what we strive for in moving beyond our FAITH BOUNDARIES. James 1:2-3 tells us “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

PERFECT RESULTS, COMPLETE, LACKING IN NOTHING, those words tells me my faith is “steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.” My friends before Christ comes for the second time, our eternal destination will have to be based totally on our faith.

Like John Huss when he had been fastened to the stake, and all was ready for the fire to be lighted, the martyr was once more exhorted to save himself by renouncing his errors. “What errors,” said Huss, “shall I renounce? I know myself INS119FaithMartinLutherKingguilty of none. I call God to witness that….”

Friends what have you done lately to affirm the faith needed to take you beyond your FAITH BOUNDARIES. Have you made it a point to keep whatever day you worship on, holy, and unique, from the other six day’s of the week. What about God’s requirements for a 10 percent tithe, are we faithful no matter what may seem more important financially.


My friends Satan will challenge us in all of God’ precepts, but endurance starts at point A and keeps going until the course is finish which is the kingdom of God. So please don’t wait, seek God’s presence today “for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.” Are you ready HAVE you GONE BEYOND YOUR FAITH BOUNDARIES IN PREPARATION TO GREET HIM.


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