“I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” Isaiah 14:13-15

JESUS AT THE TOMB 001When the voice of the mighty angel was heard at Christ’s tomb, saying, Thy Father calls Thee, the Saviour came forth from the grave by the life that was in Himself. Now was proved the truth of His words, “I lay down My life, that I might take it again. . . . I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.”

Now was fulfilled the prophecy He had spoken to the priests and rulers, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” John 10:17-18 (KJV) John 2:19 (KJV) Over the rent sepulcher of Joseph, Christ had proclaimed in triumph, “I am the resurrection, and the life.” These words could be spoken only by the Deity. All created beings live by the will and power of God.

They are dependent recipients of the life of God. From the highest seraph to the humblest animate being, all are replenished from the Source of life. Only He who is one with God could say, I have power to lay down My life, and I have power to take it again. In His divinity, Christ possessed the power to break the bonds of death. Christ arose from the dead as the first fruits of those that slept. (E.G.White Desire Of Ages)

My friends OH WHAT HOPE, FOR A CHILD OF GOD. All created beings live by the will and power of God “If you abide in imagesme, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” John 15:7 (ESV) And once your faith has allowed God’s promises to abide in you then

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?….For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:31-39 (KJV)

Satan did everything that was possible to BREAK CHRIST. But it was CHRIST, NOT SATAN who gave up his life so that you and I may have eternal life. Yes my friends RESURRECTION SUNDAY is imagestoday. Now, who is your allegiance with? A weak Satan that has only the power over us THAT WE GIVE HIM.

Remember this is the same WEAK SATAN that said “I will raise my throne above the stars of God.” Only to go down in defeat at Calvary when Christ said “IT IS FINISHED” Or is your allegiance with Jesus Christ who HAS THE POWER OVER DEATH. And with such power has laid it all out through His Spirit, for us if we believe. Life eternal awaits each of us.

Nothing in this world is worth losing out on the promises of God and what He has planned for the redeemed. “For 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 Cor. 2:9 (KJV) It is time to finish Gods work here on earth. We cannot Serve Christ from a far distance.

We must have a close and personal relationship with Him, which means everything must be about the One who gave it all for us. If we seek Salvation we must take up HIS CROSS. “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up HIS CROSS and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?  For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done.” Matt. 16:24-27 (ESV)

April 19, 2014


looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. Heb. 12:2-3 (NKJV)

Today our Savior rested, and tomorrow He rose. Yesterday He was “despised and rejected of men;…..and we esteemed him not…..He bore our griefs, and carried our sorrows:…..He was wounded for our transgressions, and bruised for our JESUS AT THE TOMB 001iniquities:

The chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. Is.53:3-7 (KJV)

THE PASSION OF CHRIST what does that mean for mankind. But today I want you to focus on what it all means for the Salvation of a child of God, as we make it personal. Let’s wrap our thoughts around the fact that if it was only you and I that was lost?

Nothing would have changed, He would have still left His pure and holy kingdom just for you and I. The beatings, the christus passion_fotoscourging, the humiliation, the same rabble would have spit in the face, and slapped, and beat and dragged, and tortured, He who was without sin.

The same spear, crown of thorns, and the nailing of his outstretched feet and hands on that cruel cross would have done the exact same damage for just you and I, as it did for all. “if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?” Matt. 18:12 (KJV)

Now that we have made it personal, and this is the one time you can allow self to take control as you realize it was done all for just you my friends. John says it best in John 3:16

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.” So the plan of Salvation did not have a starting or a cut off point for souls. The plan say’s whoever believes?

And Matt. 24:13 also tells us “he who endures to the end shall be saved. So that lets me know even though it is a free gift. Faith and endurance are also a key to us obtaining life eternal. There is also a lot of work to be done now that we have made it personnel.

For you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Acts 1:8 (NKJV) that verse did not say the church will receive, or a group will receive, or a little child, it said you and I my friends.

imagesAnd through Christ, we whose heart is fixed to serve God will always find the opportunity to be a witness for Him, because the more we can focus on the character and love of Christ the more we come to realize what was done for each of us. And so we must follow Him all the way to Calvary by being A humble servant to others.

And one day soon a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, (will stand) before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; alltogether on one accord, in adoration, throughout the heavenly courts, we will all give God the praise, glory and honor, for we will forever recognize, without Satan telling us otherwise, the Love grace and mercy employed in the salvation of mankind on this earth that were ready to parish, until God sent His only Begotten Son, to die for us.

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

A FEW DEAD FLIES WILL MAKE EVEN THE BEST PERFUME STINK. In the same way, a little foolishness can ruin much wisdom and honor.” Ecclesiastes 10:1 (ESV)

For we are to God THE PLEASING AROMA OF CHRIST among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are an AROMA that brings death; to the other, an AROMA that brings life. And who is equal to such a BM00089.1Ltask…? ” 2 Cor. 2:14-15 (ESV)

I love what that text tells us “we are THE PLEASING AROMA OF CHRIST, his representatives here on earth. My friends the world watches a child of God. Because we are distinct, unique, a “Chosen vessel” our Character should represent the love, purity, and holiness of our Savior.

BUT WHO IS EQUAL TO SUCH A TASK? we are His chosen generation. The Millennium Christian. But it seems the closer we get to Christ second coming the more we conform “with the customs, and attitudes of the world” especially our “Socially Acceptable Sins”

“My wounds are foul and are corrupt because of my foolishness.” Ps. 35:5 (ESV) Example of the “DEAD FLY MAKING THE BEST PERFUME STINK.” ” BREAKING NEWS” from our headlines a few years back


“We should know that too much of anything, even a good thing, may prove to be our undoing…[We] need … to set las_vegas_welcome_shutterstock_71256577definite boundaries on our appetites.” The Book of Virtues, by William J. Bennett secretary of education under Reagan and drug “czar” in the first Bush administration.

Mr. Bennett  has engaged in high-stakes gambling to the tune of as much as $8 million in losses in recent years.” For many years he was one of the major conservative voices arguing for virtue in the public and private life of our culture.

Mr. Bennett said he did not have a problem himself and likened gambling to drinking alcohol. “I view it as drinking,” he said. “If you can’t handle it, don’t do it.” William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard and another conservative ally of Mr. Bennett, agreed.

“This was a matter between Mr. Bennett, his wife and his accountant. He has said over the years that he likes to gamble and that it relaxes him.” So I ask Mr. Bennett and Mr. Kristol. Where is God at, in defending one’s Character? I guess the first step is to admit you have a problem.

For one day “we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.” 2 Cor. 5:10 (ESV) “The more delicate the perfume, the more easily when-i-stand-before-godspoiled is the ointment.

Common oil is not so liable to injury. So the higher a man’s religious character is, the more hurt is caused by a sinful folly in him.” Dr. Ralph Sockman writes about an experience he had while standing on the edge of Niagara Falls one clear, cold March day.

Wrapped in white winter garments, the falls glistened in the bright sun. As some birds swooped down to snatch a drink from the clear water, Sockman’s companion told how he had seen birds carried over the edge of the precipice.

As they dipped down for a drink, tiny droplets of ice would form on their wings. As they returned for additional drinks more ice would weigh down their bodies until they couldn’t rise above the wages-of-sin-3cascading waters. Flapping their wings, the birds would suddenly drop over the falls.

And that is how sin is my friends a droplet here a droplet there until THE BEST PERFUME BEGINS TO STINK. “The wages of sin is death” the more we sin the more we become immune to the bidding of the Holy Spirit who “will guide you into all truth.”

What explanation will we give Christ for not laying it all on the altar in preparation for his second coming. Soon God is going to tell His Son Let’s go get our Children “IT IS FINISHED.” Friends today please look at your life in relationship to the life of Christ as you continue to ask God each day “WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED”


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

Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident. One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek. Ps. 27:3-4 (NKJV)

“If thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done” Luke 22:42 (KJV) I am a man, but I can only imagine that at times a woman having a baby, has screamed the words

jesustempted“IF THOU BE WILLING (PLEASE) REMOVE THIS CUP FROM ME”or some semblance of, as you let anyone who will hear. I’m in pain! why did I agree to this! If this is the beginning of BIRTH PANGS, what lies ahead!

My friends I need you to focus today on the last few words of the text where Christ says “NEVERTHELESS NOT MY WILL, BUT THINE, BE DONE.” Life can seem so overwhelming at times, certain moments in our life we have second thoughts about the JOURNEY Christ has placed us on.

“Three times Christ has uttered that prayer. Three times has humanity shrunk from the last, crowning sacrifice. He sees the helplessness of man. He sees the power of sin. The woes and lamentations of a doomed world rise before Him.

He has left the courts of heaven, where all is purity, happiness, and glory, to save the one lost sheep, the one world that has fallen by transgression. And He will not turn from His mission. He will become the propitiation of a race that has willed to sin.

His prayer now breathes only submission: “If this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, THY WILL BE Jesus-Christ-Praying-Wallpapers-16DONE.”(E.G. White Desire of Ages) How many times are our prayers unheeded by God in so many situations and circumstances of our life?

Family, sickness, death, marriage, money, job, school. If you have lived in this world any length of time we have all been there but then, at that moment “Does God then forsake just those who serve Him best?

Well, He who served Him best of all said, near His tortured death, ‘Why hast thou forsaken me?’ When God becomes man, that Man, of all others, is least comforted by God, at His greatest need.

There is a mystery here which, even if I had the power, I might not have the courage to explore. Meanwhile, little people like you and me, if our prayers are sometimes granted, beyond all hope and probability, had better not draw hasty conclusions to our own advantage.

imagesIf we were stronger, we might be less tenderly treated. If we were braver, we might be sent, with far less help, to defend far more desperate posts in the great battle.” (C. S. Lewis) My friends life is a mystery at times that just can’t be explained as our faith is stretched to the limit.

But “without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Heb.11:6 (ESV) So as our Faith Grows our responsibility grows, our endurance grows.

It grows to a point that God can say as He said of Job “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man or woman, one who fears God and shuns evil?” Job 1:8 (NKJV)images

We are in a war, a war that was won on Calvary. But the god of this world continues to fight. That is why we must continue to fight for God. As we use God’s Son as our example. So we must keep fighting, and praying until we can claim victory to all the universe.

So each day we must go out on the battle field of this world with prayer, God’s Word and his Spirit, as we tell God “NOT MY WILL, BUT THY WILL BE DONE” because we “are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that (we) may proclaim the praises of Him who called (each of us) out of darkness into His marvelous light;” 1 peter 2:9

“RISE YE UP, TAKE YOUR JOURNEY…” Deu. 2:24 (KJV) That text tells us someone is sitting that God is trying to encourage to RISE UP, and start THEIR JOURNEY “For you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance. for when you have stood the test, you will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.”

Let’s start today in John 5:1-15 (NKJV) “Then Jesus said, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity 38 years. When Jesus saw him lying there, He knew his condition and how long he had been at_the_pool_of_bethesda_lgthere, but He asked him anyway, WILT THOU BE MADE WHOLE?

Christ knew this water had no supernatural power to heal, because the very source of life stood right in front of him. But how does Christ come into one’s presence and you are not aware. Is it possible to be paralyzed for 38 years with no desire TO BE MADE WHOLE by the Masters touch?

Maybe the man had just gotten used to his way of life? The poolside was a familiar and safe environment. My friends as Christians have we gotten familiar with our environment and the comfort of sitting.

Have we become so complacent, lackadaisical, and self-indulgent, that we have forgotten how to respond to Jesus presence as we live the comfortable and easy life with no desire to change or BE MADE WHOLE spiritually.

When Jesus ask the man at the pool “Wilt thou be made whole?” The man’s heart did not thrill with anticipation of being footprintshealed. Instead, in verse 7 he told Jesus his hard luck story. “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”

For 38 years the man was looking for something physically and I hope spiritually that now stood right in front of Him. And I can say without a doubt that Christ stands in our presence today, as He also ask us to “RISE UP, AND TAKE OUR JOURNEY.”

The apostle Paul, tells us in 2 Cor. 11:16-33 (KJV) “Let no one take me for a fool. But if you do, then tolerate me just as you would a fool, so that I may do a little boasting…..

I have worked hard, been in prison frequently, been flogged severely, exposed to death. Five times I received forty lashes minus one. Three times beaten with rods, once pelted with stones, shipwrecked three times, I spent  nights in the open sea, I am constantly on the move.

pppas0458-road-to-damascusBeen in danger from rivers, and bandits, in danger from Jews, and Gentiles; in danger in the city, and in the country, in danger at sea; and from false believers. I have labored and toiled and gone without sleep; I know hunger and thirst, I have been cold and naked.”

Friends, let’s go back to Paul’s Damascus road experience before all of  his trials started “and suddenly a light from heaven flashed about him, and he fell to the ground.” Now this is the part of this story where I really need you to focus today.

And Paul said “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? AND THE LORD SAID UNTO HIM, ARISE,…” Acts 9:6 (KJV) and from that point on He Never looked back. 2 Tim. 4:7-8 (KJV) Paul tells us.

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”

“Sometimes we delay our decisions and actions TO START OUR JOURNEY because of fear and vulnerability. Most often we are still hung up on the past, overwhelmed by circumstance of the present, or battling between deception and truth about our situation of the future. Confusion settles in, we look at our life and decide why should I “RISE UP,” I’M HAPPY” So our solution is, we sit on our mat by the pool of Bethesda. Today God still extends His grace my friends. We still have time, CHRIST STILL PLACES “THE JOURNEY BEFORE US. But it will end soon. And He will say “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

For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And if it is with difficulty that the righteous is saved, what will become of the godless man and the sinner?  Therefore, those also who suffer according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right. 1 Peter 4:17-19 (NASB)

“I STAND ACCUSED, there’s a list a mile long of all my sins, of everything that I’ve done wrong. I’m so ashamed, there’s 4_not-guiltynowhere left for me to hide, this is the day I must answer for my life. My fate is in the Judges hands.

But then he turns to me and says. I know you, I love you I gave my life to save you, Love paid the price for mercy. My verdict, NOT GUILTY. How can it be, I cannot begin to comprehend What kind of Grace would take the place for all my sins. I STAND IN AWE.

Now that I have been set free and the tears well up as I look at that Cross ‘Cause it should’ve been me, My fate was in the nail scarred hands, He stretched them out for me and said…I know you, I love you I gave my life to save you Love paid the price, for Mercy My verdict, not guilty.

I’m falling on my knees to thank You With everything I am. I praise You. So grateful for the words I heard you say. I know you, I love you, I gave my life…just to save you, Love paid the price, for Mercy My verdict is, NOT GUILTY. imgres(Mandisa)

Friends each day we must place it on the altar before Christ as we ask Him to “Wash (us) thoroughly from (our) iniquity,and cleanse (us) from (our) sins! For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.

Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.” Ps. 51:2-4 (ESV) And once our Savior takes over our life completely.

When that day of judgment comes He will look at His sinless Child, who stands before Him, who has been washed in the blood that He shed on Calvary, and say with no reservation NOT GUILTY, AND WE WILL STAND IN AWE.

when-i-stand-before-godBut friends there is a PROCESS, a TESTING of our ENDURANCE and FAITH before you can hear those words NOT GUILTY. For Christ tells us “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace.

In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (ESV) So as God’s Children, and His chosen WE MUST OVERCOME THE WORLD ALSO because “you dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4(NIV)

“Throughout his administration, Abraham Lincoln was a president under fire, especially during the scarring years of the Civil War. And though he knew he would make errors of office, he resolved never to compromise his integrity. So strong was this resolve that he once said.

“I desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that if at the end, when I come to lay down the reins of power, I christ hugginghave lost every other friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be DOWN INSIDE OF ME.”

And my friends as God’s Child it will always be the saving power of Christ through His Spirit DOWN INSIDE OF US and once LIVING FOR CHRIST becomes THE PASSION OF CHRIST, and His blood that flows through our veins.

Then God can say with full assurance NOT GUILTY AS I STAND IN AWE!! “before him in the kingdom “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 Cor. 5:10(NIV)

carrying-the-crossMy friends we must escalate Christ to the highest ranking position of our life. Nothing can be above him. He must be the focal point as our eyes are forever “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith,” So as we escalate Christ to His new position we will begin to diminish self to the point of DEATH.

We become irrelevant  as we recognize self will never be about us again as we subject our small and insignificant Minds and desires to the greater cause of following Christ and telling others of the good news of Christ soon return as we approach the end of this great controversy between good and evil.

Paul tells us in Galatians 2:20 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.” But once again there must be a passion to eliminate self from our life.

“Consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” Romans 6:11-14 (NASB)

And this transformation will take place as our Faith and belief in the Saving power of  our Savior allows us to have a girl praying over Bibledeeper and personal, relationship with Him and His Word. And each day you will wake up renewed in the grace of God as you tell yourself.

“I count my life of no value to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24 (NKJV) A London businessman Lindsay Clegg told the story of a warehouse property he was selling.

The building had been empty for months and needed repairs. Vandals had damaged the doors, smashed the windows, and strewn trash around the interior. As he showed a prospective buyer the property.

20090510MainSt027Clegg took pains to say that he would replace the broken windows, bring in a crew to correct any structural damage, and clean out the garbage. “Forget about the repairs,” the buyer said. “When I buy this place, I’m going to build something completely different.

I don’t want the building; I want the site.” And my friends that is the restoration and renewal God has planned for our lives for that is what Calvary was all about, our efforts to improve our own lives are insignificant, everything must go.

A TOTAL MAKEOVER  in the blood of our Savior must take place. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Cor. 5:17 (KJV)

Friends remember the controversy and battle will be fought and won through our death to self and resurrection of a new life in Jesus Christ as we carry the same cross as Christ carried and our acceptance of His resurrection from the dead.

But we must never be complacent we must never remove the armor Christ has given us. For the god of this world continues “to move about seeking who he may devour” So with self dead we can say without any reservations

“If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God’s elect?…But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God,” Rom. 8:31-39 (NASB)  AS SELF DIES, AND LIFE BEGINS IN CHRIST!!!

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 (KJV)

1390088664TRUTH the original Greek word meant alétheia in religious matters; So what is TRUTH in things appertaining to God and the duties of man and a Child of God in today’s society where man has decided His own interpretation of things pertaining to God, instead of allowing  the Spirit of God and His word to Guide.

When Christianity was first introduced in the period after the death of Christ you had The GNOSTIC which appeared similar to CHRISTIANITY. GNOSTIC “is a knowledge from experience, especially experience of divinity or that which is beyond the five senses.

The word Gnosis does not refer to knowledge that we are told or believe in. Gnosis is conscious, experiential knowledge,” But what I need you to focus on today is the fact that the GNOSTIC had a form of Christianity or “having a form of godliness but denying its power.”

Like the wheat and tares, the similarity is the same. Matt 24:11-12 (KJV) tells us that “many false prophets shall rise, imgresand shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”

I believe those text were put together because a false prophet is one who claims to speak from God, and claims power in what he is prophesying But in reality is led by the god of this world. So to deceive in the name of God is cold and heartless.

So TRUTH my friends is what we all should seek, if you also seek God’s kingdom. But with so many voices claiming to speak in the name of the Lord. Where, or who do we go to for the TRUTH.

John tells us in John 16:13 (NKJV) “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”

dreamstime_4732909And as we Study Gods word it “is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Heb. 4:12 (NKJV)

So as God’s chosen, if I follow the councils of God in His word, while allowing the Spirit to lead, a Child of God will never be lead astray by false prophets. But we must seek Salvation with a Passion like Jeremiah When God’s words (come to us, we must eat them;) they (must be our joy, and heart’s delight,) Jer. 15:16 (NIV)

As we “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2Tim 2:15 (KJV) “God has been pleased to communicate His truth to the world by human agencies, and He Himself, by His Holy Spirit, qualified men and enabled them to do this work.

He guided the mind in the selection of what to speak and what to write. The treasure was entrusted to earthen vessels, 897680_syet it is, nonetheless, from Heaven. The testimony is conveyed through the imperfect expression of human language, yet it is the testimony of God;

and the obedient, believing child of God beholds in it the glory of a divine power, full of grace and truth. In His Word, God has committed to men the knowledge necessary for salvation. The Holy Scriptures are to be accepted as an authoritative, infallible revelation of His will.

They are the standard of character, the revealer of doctrines, and the test of experience. “Every scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness; that the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV) (E.G. White Great Controversy)

Remember friends what Christ says of Satan “there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it….(and that includes false Prophets.) He who is of God hears God’s words;” John 8:44-47 (NKJV)  So STUDY MY FRIENDS PLEASE STUDY


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





THIS IS THE DAY which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Ps 118:24 (KJV)

6a011570df09d5970c0147e10e04f4970bMy friends I am sure we all can begin to “Count the years as months Count the months as weeks Count the weeks as days any day now We’ll be goin’ home.” I remember as a kid once Thanksgiving came you knew Christmas was right around the corner.

The waiting, and anticipation as the days got closer and closer. Today as I look back on that time I even miss the anticipation of the wait. And then that day came and my parents never disappointed us. I can here my mother beating that pan with a spoon at five in the morning “THIS IS THE DAY.”

They always made sure that day was everything to us and more. Today I fill that anticipation for Christ return becausebox_a_foreman_ali1_sw_300 I can say with some assurance that as a child of God we all can begin to “count the weeks as days.” I know, it aint over until God says it’s over.

But friends we are at the threshold. I know we must keep fighting, praying, as we continue to build our faith and endurance for the victory is ours. Satan is on the ropes, and He’s about to fall never to be a component in our life, or Salvation ever again.

“… For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 3:13-14

Yes our life as we move closer to that day is like vapor that appeareth and then vanish but soon the “Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:

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.”

imagesDr. F.W. Boreham tells a story about his stay in a cottage in England occupied by a minister’s widow. She had given him her bedroom, in the morning when he pulled up the blind, he saw that into the glass of the windowpane had been cut the words: “THIS IS THE DAY.”

He asked the elderly lady about it at breakfast. She explained that she had had a lot of trouble in her time and was always afraid of what was going to happen tomorrow. One day she read the words of the text in Psalm 118:24 “THIS IS THE DAY the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

It occurred to her that it meant any day, this day. “Why should I be afraid of the days if He makes them?” So the widow scratched the words as well as she could in the windowpane, so that every time she drew her blind in the morning she was reminded that “THIS IS THE DAY.”

Yes my friends that must be how we live our lives each day. But it will only have meaning if we live it with Passion, and imagesanticipation that “THIS IS THE DAY.” But if we don’t see the clouds open and Christ with his army of angels coming to take the redeemed home.

That only means we still have work to do as we spread the good news of Christ return with DRIVE and PASSION with the words forever on our lips. It wasn’t today, but it will be tomorrow, and as I wait, and work for Christ daily the “Lord, (will be) a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain. I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.” Ps. 3:3-5 because “BREAKING NEWS!! “THIS IS THE DAY.” Will soon be here.  


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

The world was created by the Spoken Word of God. This 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 Genesishovering over the waters. Gen 1:2 (NKJV)

So what this should tell a  Child of God is that God’s Word brings about a transformation that can only come about when we “Study to show thyself approved unto God,” Gen 1:1 (KJV) tells us “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth”

John 1:1 (NKJV) tells us “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.

“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 at 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 thescriptures_id10736432_size0[1] Infinite One. It transforms our nature, and re-creates our character into the image of God.”(Ellen G. White.)

And once our lives are transformed then we will begin to understand through faith in the Word of God, that a miracle has truly taken place in our lives. Paul says in 2 Cor 5:17-18 (NKJV) “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” And once we have completely given it all to the master we allow His full armor of righteousness to protect us against the forces of evil who’s only goal is to destroy us.

Remember my friends The Word of God is the foundation that transforms our lives, and when the mind is saturated with the Word, a transformed life brought on by the Word of God is the greatest confirmation of a true renewal of our character.

And when our character is rooted in the Word of God, and continues to be rooted, it is an experience that lasts neon-faith-basedthroughout our lives here on earth, and will also carry us throughout the ceaseless ages of Eternity.

If we reject knowing the knowledge in Gods word, due to the fact that we allowed the things of this world to become detrimental to our salvation, because they were more important than studying the Word of God and doing His will.

There will then be “a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day. Johm 12:48 (NIV)

Remember our “faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the Word about Christ.” who died in our place on Calvary so we could live with Him in His pure and holy kingdom.

Oh what love But it did not end with His death on the cross. He rose again and the word still lives! Yes He lives. “And I serve that same risen Savior because He is in my life today. I know that He is living in me, no matter what men may say. I know He lives inside of me, because I see His hand of mercy grace and love as I begin to truly hear, and feel God and His Word, while allowing my faith to grow in His grace. And once we continue to focus on Christ and His word. We will find that God will glorify Himself in us through His Word, and we have God’s assurance, which is based totally on His love for us and THE WORD OF GOD THAT LIVES INSIDE OF US!!


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