“And to the angel of the church of Laodicea ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked……” Revelation 3:14-21

imgresNow as a child of God in the 21st century. I am a good church member because I feed the hungry, cloth the homeless, visit the sick and I bring hope to those bound in prison. On top of that, I keep all the precepts of Gods law, and I have memorized the bible from top to bottom: I Do not commit adultery, or murder, or steal.

I Do not bear false witness, and I Honor my parents, yes I have kept all these things from my youth until now. I am also a part of the Church choir, finance committee, usher and deaconess board. So I know that I have a mansion waiting in heaven for me with my name already on the front gate. I got it going on my friends!!

But you know the sad part about that statement is, we as Christians don’t recognize The Laodicea church in Rev. 3 we haven’t figured out that God speaks directly to our church today. Christ tells us Himself in Matt 7:21 (NIV) “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”

Our church today has lost its significance and savor, because the god of this world has occupied our minds with the things of this world and so we have lost sight of the saving neon-faith-basedgrace of the Master. As members of God’s church we have become more concern with materialism, consumerism, individualism, and did you see the last episode of Scandal.

This is why we HAVE A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE and faith, Paul tells us “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” Romans 10:17 (NKJV) But we have no time to study God’s Word. But friends our God loves us so much, and is so patient. “His grace is sufficient,” “not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

So he gives us hope and a goal to seek after, if we believe. His Promise of hope comes at the end of his letter to the Laodicea. It is a triumphant, and victorious note, in verses 19-21 tells us “those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.

If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. TO THE ONE WHO IS imgresVICTORIOUS, I WILL GIVE THE RIGHT TO SIT WITH ME ON MY THRONE, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.”Colossians 2:6 -8 also tells us

“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

So I pray to God that I will continue His ministry to the world, and to everyone I may come in contact with each day. And my daily prayer is Lord, Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Ps. 51:10 (NIV) and let everyone I witness to, also be filled with the same fire and passion from God’s Spirit that is within me because I now know “there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord. There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons”1 Corinthians12:4-6 (NIV) and I have now allowed Him to work them in me.


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

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)


imagesGen 1:1 (NKJV) “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth” “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:1-5 (NKJV) “The creative force that brought about the existence of our world is the Word, And the Word is God. The Word at the beginning of John 1 is linked by this passage to the first words spoken by God in the beginning, when he says “‘Let there be light’ and there was light.” Genesis 1:3 (NKJV)

“Every command is a promise; accepted by the will, and received into the soul, and it also brings with it the life of the Infinite One. It transforms our nature, and re-creates our character into the image of God.” (Ellen G. White.) In the book of Genesis it tells us that the world and the very existence of life was conceived by God in the spirit.

“Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Gen.  1:2 (NKJV) So as a Child of God what that text tells me, if God can transform darkness into light. He can surly transform my life IF, my desire is to live with him in the earth made new.

IF is the key word because we also must have a desire to want to change. We can’t forget, there is a spiritual warfare going on each day over our minds and body. AndBible_compass the god of this world will do whatever it take to get you to follow him to perdition.

But if we choose salvation, than we will begin to understand through faith in God’s word and His Spirit, that a miracle has truly taken place in our lives and that miracle is called “redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.” Paul tells us “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God. who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation” 2 Cor 5:17-18 (NKJV)

And once we have completely given it all to the Master we then have given God the permission to equip us with the full armor of His righteousness to protect us against the forces of evil. And our confirmation want be a number given to us, but a character that is in the very image of God. And if we continue to live our life “by faith” and endure till the end than one day soon God will take us home to live with Him throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.

So friends please don’t allowed the things of this world to become detrimental to your salvation. Study God’s Word, because it’s what gives us the strength to endure. Hosea 4:6 (NKJV) tells us “MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE” And So my friends remember that Jesus loves us and because of His love.

double20rainbow20over20kauai20hawaii-300x168Ephesians 1:10-14 (NKJV) tells us “to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession to the praise of his glory. Now that is what I call a HAPPY ENDING.

“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.” Acts 3:19

Repentance is not just feeling remorseful, or conscience-stricken, but convicted through God’s Spirit to live according to God’s precepts and laws. Feeling sorry without giving it all to the master is not repentance. Repentance is a transformation from the results of sin to living a life that is center around the Character, grace, and love of Jesus imgresChrist who died for the sinner whose “sin doth so easily besets them.”

We have no power to divorce our self from the penalty of sin unless we recognize that it is as a cancer that will spread and cause death. Cancer develops when cells in a part of the body begin to grow out of control. Once a person reaches maturity, cells in most parts of the body divide only to replace worn out or dying cells and to repair injuries.

Because cancer cells continue to grow and divide, they are different from normal cells; instead of dying, they outlive normal cells and continue to form new abnormal cells. Cancer cells develop because of damage to DNA. In cancer cells, the damaged DNA is not repaired. Often, cancer cells travel to other parts of the body where they begin to grow and replace normal tissue.

These cancer cells, if they are not entirely eradicated, will continue to multiply and will eventually kill the patient. Cancer and sin are much alike we must completely eradicate sin. If we wish to live abundant lives, Galatians 2:20 tells us “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Paul says in Romans 6:23,

My friends “the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” “But when the heart yields to the influence of the Spirit of God, the conscience true_repentancewill be quickened, and the sinner will discern something of the depth and sacredness of God’s holy law.” John 1:9 states the “Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world, illumines the secret chambers of the soul, and the hidden things of darkness are made manifest.”

“Conviction takes hold upon the mind and heart. The sinner has a sense of the righteousness of Jehovah and feels the terror of appearing, in his own guilt and uncleanness, before the Searcher of hearts. He sees the love of God, the beauty of holiness, the joy of purity; he longs to be cleansed and to be restored to communion with Heaven.”(E. G. White Steps to Christ, p. 24.)

Matthew 3:1-3 says “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near” One of the greatest gifts God has given man among many is the ability to repent and be saved. Without this capability we would be unable to enter God’s Kingdom and receive life eternal. Repentance and Restoration of our lives leads to the sinner entering into the Presence of Jesus Christ.

Remenber my friends 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” When we humbly present our life to our heavenly Father and partition him through imagesheartfelt prayer, as we say.

“Our, Father, which art in heaven. You alone are God. And I am your child. please, guide me through each situation and circumstances of my life as I become a witness of your grace, and please allow me to glorify Your holy name, because you are God and God along. But most of all please cleanse, and forgive this wretched sinner from my unrighteousness.

And when I have done your will in my life and praised your name, then through your mercy, if you see fit, please give this sinner more grace. So that I may serve you all the days of my life that I have left on this earth.


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

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”  2 Corinthians 5:10 (NIV)

7b0e8964343c510ddd500efa14fd6f68A spiritual war is being fought right now over the minds and bodies of all mankind. As God’s Children, we wait for this “Great Controversy” between good and evil to end. But we must still prepare to give an account to Christ of how we utilized our time and resources while here on earth.”? How do we answer the Creator of the universe.

What do you say to God. It is a simple question, but direct. And how do you account for how you lived your life from day to day. As we study God’s Word and seek His SPIRIT, we will come to the realization that in spite of the love, and grace of God, we are still liable, responsible, and answerable for our actions, and time we spend here on earth.

Remember our time belongs to God. Every moment belongs to Him, and “we are under the most solemn obligation to spend our time seeking God’s Presence.” Grace, probation and the time in which to prepare for life eternal will end soon. So my friends we have no TIME to devote to our own selfish pleasure, no TIME for “Socially Acceptable Sins”

It is now that we are to form our characters for the future, to enter into Gods Kingdom. So we must begin engaging ourselves and one another to grow in Christ by the daily renewal of our MIND and BODY through the study of God’s word and the seeking of His Spirit as we “lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” Heb. 12:1 (NIV)

And let’s not forget also our Savior needs leaders in finishing up His work  “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” God’s  prophecy tells us that Babylon will fall  its  imagesforces of evil will fall, the powerful economic systems that have degraded the poor will fall, the strongly entrenched and popular religions, who did not follow God’s precepts in His word will fall.

The extremists who have influenced the masses against their Creator and His people will fall.” But his righteous children will stand forever. Paul says In 2 Corinthians 4:3-4(NIV)  “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

The battle to resist  is fought daily in our hearts and minds, but in 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV) it says “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”

PrayertoOurLordSo through Faith and endurance it can happen. Therefore, He commands us to come out of Babylon “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,” come out of Babylon and “He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun” Ps. 37:6 (NIV)

Come out of Babylon for I have gone “to prepare a place for you, and I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” John 14:3 (NIV) “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Matthew 24:7 (NIV)

Everything I have been taught all of my life about what will happen right before the coming of the Lord is happening now. Christ warned us throughout His Word. Prophecy is now being fulfilled. So my friends let your prayers each day be. Dear Heavenly Father, we come before you 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.


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

“Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3:13 (NIV)

My friends by possessing the attitude of forgiveness, you will also embrace the characteristic of love, peace, joy, hope, and gratitude. Forgiveness is the greatest gift to give. images2You can receive it, or you can give it. It doesn’t mean that you deny the other person’s responsibility, and it doesn’t minimize or justify the wrong.

Forgiveness brings about a peace of mind that allows you to go on with life, in the loving arms of God. Christ tells us in Matthew 6:14-15 (KJV) “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Stop and consider your salvation, are you willing to give up Eternal Life because you are unwilling to forgive. When we accept Jesus and His forgiveness towards us. We also must forgive others. Peter had came to Christ with the question, “How oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times” Matt. 18:22 (NIV)

That statement lets me know that we are never to become tired of forgiving. As Christ hung on that cruel cross nothing that day was about Him. It was all about our Salvation, and the saving of Humanity from the clutches of Satan and the forces of evil. Luke 23:34 (KJV) says it best when Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

Even the centurions who were part of his crucifixion were included in the saving  power of Christ grace, love and mercy. Even as he was about to give up his life, His only imagesthoughts were the plan of salvation, and man’s redemption. In Luke 23:47 (KJV) it tells us when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying.“Certainly this was a righteous Man!”

The unimaginable power of forgiveness that day on Calvary. “The hope of violence is overcome by peace, hatred is conquered by the love of the Master. Even under the greatest pressure while enduring the most gruesome and humiliating pain. Our Savior responded to Hatred with love, mercy and forgiveness.”

My friends Christ tells us to “Love our enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” forgiveness is a choice that we make through a decision of our own will, motivated only by being obedient to God and his commission to follow Him even to the cross “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” Matt. 16:24 (NIV)

Friends you cannot bear your cross if you have unforgivness in your heart towards another. Paul tells us: “Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

forgiveness2Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” Phil. 2:1-5 (NKJV)

“He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.” (Martin Luther King, Jr.)

At the very heart of Christ ministry was a simple concept and that is to love one another as we love one’s self. My friends As children of God. Time and again, the Bible reinforces the simple words of Christ Himself “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” Matt. 5:44 (KJV)

“Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and DANCE..”  Ps. 150:1-6 (ESV)

0“I CAN ONLY IMAGINE Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel, will I dance for you Jesus, or in awe, will I just be still?  Will I stand in your PRESENCE, or to my knees will I fall, will I sing hallelujah, or will I be able to speak at all? I CAN ONLY IMAGINE”

My friends what would you do in the very PRESENCE of the one who gave it all for your Salvation. would you “DANCE, or in awe of his PRESENCE  just be still?”  What about the type of dance you will do? Would it be a dance like David did in 2 Samuel 6:14 (KJV) where it says “And David danced before the Lord WITH ALL HIS MIGHT…”

I have no doubt at that moment David just IMAGINED being in the very PRESENCE of God and gave it all he had. My friends that is where I want you to take your FOCUS today as you IMAGINE yourself in the very PRESENCE of God maybe in the throne room, or maybe you are “in the middle of the great street of the city, near the river, where the tree of life stands……” Rev.22:2 (NIV) now just IMAGINE.

I can see why God said David was a “Man after His own Heart,” because he was constantly imagining being in the very PRESENCE of God, “Blessed is the man that walketh not indavid the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night….” Ps. 1:1-2 (KJV)

My friends that verse says it all. “But his delight is In the law of the Lord, and in His law doth he MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT. That means, CONTINUOUS, UNINTERRUPTED MEDITATION of your time, in His Word, as you seek God’s PRESENCE wherever he may be abiding in the heavenly realms, as you go before Him and say in sincere, and heartfelt supplication. LET YOUR WILL BE DONE IN MY LIFE TODAY, SO THAT WHEN THIS JOURNEY IS OVER, I CAN DANCE WITH ALL MY MIGHT IN YOUR VERY PRESENCE.

My friends I hope I have painted some kind of picture that will give you the PASSION to want to DANCE before our Savior with all your might, or maybe you will just want to STAND STILL IN AWE of being in His presence. But whatever you decide what I need you to understand is, you will have ETERNITY to do it.

“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12 (ESV)  My friends I think I want to DANCE with my crown on my head, what about you. But you now have to ask yourself, at what level is my faith to make that happen.

fear_the_lord1Because if you have not figured out how to LIVE, and DANCE in the Presence of God while on this earth, how will you be able to do it in His kingdom. Or if you are not willing to bear his cross on this earth how can you bear a crown in his kingdom. “NO CROSS NO CROWN?” 

One cannot be strong in the Lord and never experience trials. To have STRENGTH, we must have EXERCISE. To have STRONG FAITH we must be placed in circumstances where our FAITH will be called forth. Just before his MARTYRDOM, the apostle Paul said to Timothy: “Be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel, according to the power of God.” It is through much tribulation that we enter the kingdom of heaven. Our Saviour was tried in every possible way, and yet he triumphed continually in God. It is our privilege under all circumstances to be strong in the strength of God and to glory in the cross of Christ.”(E.G.WHITE)

And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. The mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. 2 Thess. 2:6-8 (ESV)

crucified with Christ sunset“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar He said, ‘IT IS FINISHED!’ and He bowed His head and gave up the ghost.” We are now in the final chapter of this “Great controversy” between good and evil. Paul tells us “For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.

While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.” 1 Thess. 5:2-3 (NIV) “The curtain is pulled back.” And we see the terror Satan felt when Christ said “IT IS FINISHED.” Demons are now asking Satan what’s happening.

This is not what you promised us as they see Jesus dying on the cross, and they realize their destiny is sealed forever in the blood of Christ. Holy angels are watching as the prince of peace, their loving Master hangs on that cruel cross. Jews from throughout the world are in Jerusalem for the Passover, with curiosity, asking, what is this all about?

Who is this man who calls Himself the Son of God? Why is He being crucified? Satan’s character is now revealed. Holy angels had not understood the course that Satan took, orit-is-finished why, until they heard the words “IT IS FINISHED.” The plan of redemption is now completed, the character of God is now revealed to all mankind, and God’s law of love is now established forever.

The destruction of sin and the character of Satan will forever be made certain to all, redemption can now run its course, and our salvation forever guaranteed if we are willing to give it all to Master. What His sacrifice on Calvary meant to each of us who believed. We will never fully comprehend, until God Himself “wipes every tear from our eyes.”

And with a still small voice say with all the compassion and love that gave us the strength here on this earth to endure the journey He had placed us on “IT TRULY IS FINISHED.” “Come now and share your Master’s happiness!” John says it best in John 3:16 (NKJV) For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Those words should get us out of bed each morning with a renewed PASSION to tell the world “IT IS FINISHED!” Christ will soon return for his faithful children. And the more repentancewe sustain that PASSION within us. And the more we focus on the character and love of Christ. The more we come to realize that we must continue to follow Christ all the way as we take up our cross and become a humble servant to others.

Our mission now is  to go into all the world and tell everyone of His love, grace, and mercy. A message for “such a time as this” Especially as we enter into the final days of this life’s history, as we constantly study the word of God and seek His Spirit daily while gaining strength needed to continue this journey.

So my friends don’t get discourage, for Christ is our example, continue to endure until the “Battle is over” for there are souls that still need to know that God’s word and Spirit has power. Oh the gratitude of souls that will meet us in the heavenly courts, to thank us for our efforts in presenting the gospel of Christ to them, and letting them know that Satan was defeated, and there salvation was assured at the cross when Christ said “IT IS FINISHED”


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

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Eph. 3:20-21 (NIV)

imgres“Then he said, “Take the arrows,” and the king took them. Elisha told him, “Strike the ground.” He struck it three times and stopped. The man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times.” 2 Kings 3:18-19 (NIV)

My friends how many times have we stop short of our blessings because of our unbelief in what God is able and willing to do for His faithful Children. For if you are a Child of God, Faith has no barriers.

Neither does God’s love and his desire to give us what we ask. So our prayers must be prayers of  PASSION, and a heartfelt belief that God will supply all of our needs. But we must also not look at Faith as our personal debit card that we pull out and use when we seek the finer things of life.

The true concept of Faith, Salvation and the grace and mercies of God and His promises are all found in His word. Paul tells us. “But not all the Israelites accepted the good imagesnews. For Isaiah says, “Lord, WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR MESSAGE?” Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. But I ask: DID THEY NOT HEAR? Of course they did…”, Romans 10:16-18 (NIV)

My friends DID YOU NOT HEAR DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND that “FAITH comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ” who is OUR PERSONAL SAVIOR. “Genuine faith is a transaction by which those who receive Christ join themselves in a covenant relationship with God.”

Genuine faith has to be a way of life and a PASSION from within. Genuine Faith is also accepting the fact that the rough side of the mountain may never be conquered until Christ appears a second time, but we will never stop climbing. “For faith does not make things easy, it only makes things possible,”

neon-faith-basedit places us right in the throne room with God as our faith is stretch, but our hope never dies that our prayers will be answered even if it is not until we have reached God’s pure and holy kingdom, and He tells us “Well done, good and faithful servant!” So today “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding or knowledge.”

And one day, as we walk those streets paved in gold and “we try to call up our greatest trials, but they looked so small compared with the far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory that surrounded us, that we could not speak them out, and we all cried out, “ALLELUIA! HEAVEN IS CHEAP ENOUGH” and we touched our glorious harps and made heaven’s arches ring.” (E.G. White Life Sketch)

Paul tells us in Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the FAITH of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” “I live by the FAITH of the Son of God” must become our mission statement today. Friends, things are happening all around us.

“For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.” 2 Thess. 2:7-8 (NIV) Satan knows he has but a short time. Our FAITH will be tested the closer we get to Christ second coming. But if we are Children of  THE KING the reward for ENDURANCE will be worth the wait.

Jesus-visitaAnd there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum.  When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death..” John 4:46-47 (NIV)

Then Jesus says in John 4:48 (NIV) “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will never believe.” The nobleman said in verse 49 “Sir, come down before my child dies.” Why did Jesus change the subject, the comment seems to be a condemnation. not a reply to his request.

“Unless you see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe.” But my friends what that statement tells us, that Jesus is concerned more for the Nobleman’s Salvation than for the life of the child. At this point the healing of the Child to Christ is secondary.

Healing is only a thought to the great physician. “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost. Luke 19:10 (NIV)
jesus and the nobleman's son Christ knows it is our Faith that will save us from the penalty of sin and When we accept Jesus as our Savior we are accepting the call to repentance from sin.

“This is the work of Christ that ye have faith and believe on him whom he hath sent.” John 6:29 (NIV) Where is the Nobleman’s faith is He a part of the Crowd who will only believe if they “see signs”

The twenty miles from Capernaum to Cana was not the only distance the nobleman had to cross, “he had to cross an even greater distance socially. He a nobleman had to lower himself to the level of the common people to seek help from a humble villager, a blue collar worker, a carpenter, and a street preacher.”

But the adversity in this man’s life of someone He loved whose conditions he would have been more than willing to change places with, if it was possible, lead him into direct contact with Jesus the Great Physician. And Jesus used it as an opportunity to not only Heal his son but to offer Him the free gift of Salvation, and Eternal life. And He accepted it.

“Go your way; your son lives.” The man literally believed the words of Jesus Christ, and started out on a lengthy journey to return to his home. The next day, while he was traveling homeward, his servants intercepted him, and told him, “Your son lives!”

imagesWhen he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, “Yesterday, at one in the afternoon, the fever left him.”Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.”

So he and his whole household believed. John 4:50-53 (NIV) This is a story of faith my friends. Faith should never be sight, smell, taste or touch it is simply taking God at His word.  Acts 27:25 (NIV) tells us to “keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me”.

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” The bible tells us, that the nobleman believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. So this Story tells us that God’s no 1 priority is to save all who call upon him in faith.

For Peter states in 2 peter 3:9 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.” The sickness of the child became the pathway of salvation for the nobleman and his entire household. so my friends remember it is never just about us. Jesus commanded His disciples to GO into all the world and PREACH THE GOSPEL. The key word is Go. meaning Go to our families Go to our friends Go to our neighbors GO to our co-workers and go to all the world and tell them about the good news of Christ love and His soon return.

I will lift up mine eyes to the hills From whence cometh my help My help cometh from the Lord The Lord Which made heaven and earth He said, He will not suffer thy foot; thy foot to be moved The Lord Which keepeth thee He will not slumber nor sleep For the Lord is thy keeper The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand Upon thy right hand For the sun shall not smite thee by day Nor the moon by night He shall preserve thy soul Even forever more My help, All of my help Cometh from the Lord Ps. 121

ant“Observe the ant,” the great Oriental conqueror Tamerlane told his friends, “I once was forced to take shelter from my enemies in a dilapidated building, where I sat alone for many hours.

Wishing to divert my mind from my hopeless situation, I fixed my eyes on an ant carrying a kernel of corn larger than itself up a high wall. I counted its attempts to accomplish this feat. The corn fell sixty-nine times to the ground, but the insect persevered.

The seventieth time it reached the top. The ant’s accomplishment gave me courage for the moment, and I never forgot the lesson.” (Streams in the Desert) Today my friends at what level is your FAITH, and trust on the promises in God’s word.

Has your heartfelt Prayer and supplication only reached plateau level, where there is little to no change in your life’s situations and circumstances, so you retreat, and pull back. In proverbs 6:6 (NKJV) it tells us to “go to the ant…consider her ways and be wise.”

Like the ant in our parable, the problems we face each day, from a human standpoint becomes overwhelming, and unsolvable. But also like the ant who stayed focused. We must also stay focused on the promises of God.

His word assures us “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all imagesthe more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Cor. 16:58 (NIV) and also “pray without ceasing;” 1 Thess. 5:17 (KJV)

Life, Death, Home, Family, Employment! The trials on our JOURNEY is infinite when we think of one’s problems within the interaction with our day to day life and how we as Christians relate or handle each situation or circumstances that arises.

But as Christians seeking a new home we must stretch our Faith to the limit as we become so focused on our goal which is God’s kingdom that defeat is never an option, only VICTORY THROUGH ENDURANCE in God’s WORD. Remember the God we serve is.

“unlimited, unmeasurable, and infinitely, in extent of space, duration of time in regards to what He is capable of doing for each of us.” He is a infinite God “who will never leave or forsake us,” for “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

hqdefaultShall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? Romans 3:35(NIV) In Matthew 7:9-11 it tells us “Which of you, if your son or daughter asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake?

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” But the key for VICTORY my friends is FAITH in God’s WORD, and remain FOCUSED and ENDURE till the battle is over.

Luke 3:5 tells us Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth.” The ant never gives up, he may fall at times as his burdens gets heavy but he never stops, always pursuing his GOAL which is the top of the mountain. But to a Child of God that hill is the PROMISE LAND, AND LIFE ETERNAL
