Ferris WheelMy friends sometimes we get so overwhelmed as we trace our steps back to when life was so simple, starting with life as a child, Christmas mornings, the sight of a county fair for the first time, the companionship of friends, schoolmates, graduation, the beauty of your bride or groom as you tell yourself this is the answer to my soul’s desire and then a new life begins to unfold a child is born and life takes on a whole new meaning.

The Journey God places His Children on has many turns because as stubborn Children at times we fill we can move away from Gods guidance, that is when life becomes a maze as we begin to experience the mountains and valleys of life with no idea of which direction makes sense. But through it all as His chosen God still has his guiding hand on us.

Oh the love of God as He gives His children just a glimpse of  why the cross was necessary for our Salvation as we begin to lone for a better place a home free of  the baggage that comes along with sin and the god of this world. In addition God has made his purpose clear there is work to be done before the bridegroom comes and takes His children home.

Yes I know we all lone for a better place as we awake to a world each day where Satan seems to have full control but we d6dbca4511381d0f0efca1744c141520.500x394x1don’t have time  to think about regrets or what life SHOULD HAVE BEEN, OR COULD HAVE BEEN, IF WE JUST HAD DONE IT THIS WAY.

My friends God’s Mandate must be carried out now, the good news of the gospel must “be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matt 24:14 (NKJV)

Since no one has seen the elements above open and the Son of man appear through the clouds of heaven, that tells us the end has not yet come and God still has work to be done. My friends we must finish the course that Christ has set before us. But it must be all about God and his will as we die daily.

Galatians 2:20 (KJV) 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 flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loves me.” So once we die in Christ we then begin to “lay aside every weight, and the sin [and things of this world] which doth so easily beset us.”

Universe-006In addition, nothing in the past or present should we seek except life eternal and not just for ourselves but friends, family, love one’s neighbors co-workers, and a world that has lost hope that at this point is traveling on that wide road to perdition.

The spreading of the good news of Christ return must become a PASSION with the words forever on our lips, He didn’t come today, but it will be tomorrow, and as we wait, and work for Christ daily the “Lord, will be a shield around each of us the Lord will sustains us.”Until the day of His appearing”

So today we must fill an anticipation for Christ return more than ever before and tomorrow I will say the same thing because I can say with full assurance that as a child of God we all can begin to “count the weeks as days.”

Friends we are at the threshold but we must keep fighting and praying, as we continue to build our faith and endurance victory1-300x199for the victory is ours. Satan is on the ropes, and He’s about to fall never to be a factor again as we make our plans to live throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity with or Savior.

So yes my friends We COULD HAVE DONE IT ANOTHER WAY but be “certain that God, who began the good work within you, [in spite of  the seasons of life and Satan changing our directions at times God] will continue his work [within us] until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Phil 1:6 (NLT)

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; Matthew 7:21-23 (NASV)

images“The tendency of the popular religious teaching of the day is to make the Christian’s pathway as easy and attractive as possible. There is a great deal said concerning faith, but the necessity of performing the sacred obligations set forth in the word of God, the necessity of living consistent, godly lives, of being workers together with God, of denying self, of coming out from the world and separating from its fashions and follies” (E. G. White Signs of the times March 30, 1888) is just not essential to being a Christian in the 21st century high tech society we live in today. We tell ourselves I’m a good person, I go to church every week, I’m on the Deacon or deaconess board I even pay a 20 % tithe, I visit the sick and feed the homeless what more does God want.

My friends it is so easy to look at what James tells us in James 1:26 (ASV) and say to ourselves I am a “doer of the word, and not [just a] hearer.” “But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matt 7:14 (NIV)  The part of God’s word that gets blurred in our translation is the very foundation that our salvation is based upon which is centered on Calvary and the events that leads to Christ death on the Cross and His resurrection.

Christ tells us in Matt. 10:38 (ASV) “And he that doth not take his cross and follow after me, is not worthy of carrying-the-crossme.” My friends it is very easy to stay in a comfort zone and pay a double tithe and visit the sick because that was the simple part of Christ ministry but oh the faith, endurance and love it will take to make it personal with Christ our example who laid the path and now “sits at the right hand of God” Advocating for each of us who have the faith to follow him to Calvary as we carry our own cross.

“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: for peradventure for the good man someone would even dare to die. But God commendeth his own love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:7-8 (ASV) Now friends ask yourself, what part of that cross have I carried up to this point of my life, maybe the part of being spit upon or slapped or beat unmercifully and then scourge and this all happens before the weight of the cross you bear to Golgotha where our Savior died a cruel death for our sins.

Where I need you to focus today is the preparation of what lies ahead for God’s chosen and the extinct Satan will go through to make a child of God recant on our commitment to Christ to serve Him and do His will. In addition, it all hqdefaultcomes down to allowing Christ to stretch our faith a little more each day while allowing self to die as we gain the power and strength needed to endure the journey ahead as we take up our cross and follow Christ as we focus on His Word while allowing the Spirit to transform.

“When the emperor Valens threatened Eusebuis with confiscation of all his goods, torture, banishment, or even death, the courageous Christian replied, “He needs not fear confiscation, who has nothing to lose; nor banishment, to whom heaven is his country; nor torments, when his body can be destroyed at one blow; nor death, which is the only way to set him at liberty from sin and sorrow.” My friends we all must make a conscientious decision to tell God today, You have placed me on this Journey and I am committed to say LORD, LORD  AND TO CARRY MY CROSS AT THE SAME TIME.

The Story of DavidToday let’s go to 1 Samuel 17 where you have two opposing armies on the battle field one representing the god of this world and the other representing Jehovah the creator of the universe. “The Philistines stood on a mountain on one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side, with a valley between them.

……“I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together.” When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, THEY WERE DISMAYED AND GREATLY AFRAID [my friends ask yourself how does a child of God become afraid of outside forces when He has God on His side]…

……Then David [a bystander] spoke to the men who stood by him, saying, “What shall be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” My friends where I need you to focus today is how far does a individual or a whole army have to move away from a relationship with God before they fail to recognize the presence of God.

Consistent with this, It took a “ruddy boy with bright eyes” to bring them back to reality and allow them the David.Goliath.Small_opportunity to understand the consequences of an uncircumcised Philistine or the god of this world who defies  the armies of the living God because “For forty days the host of Israel had trembled before the haughty challenge of the Philistine giant.

Their hearts failed within them as they looked upon [the] massive form” of Goliath. But my friends continue to ask yourself why no one out of this vast army besides David a “ruddy kid” who was only a bystander did not defend the living God who they were suppose to be representing and then look at yourself  and ask, do I defend God each day, in my home , on my job, in my neighborhood and in a world that has lost their “spiritual compass.”

As David faces Goliath He Speaks for His God and not for Himself. David did not fear this Giant who represented everything that He had been taught was an abomination to God. Representing God he faces Goliath with only God at his side, as he speaks to the uncircumcised Philistine: “Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”

God made sure David’s speech to Goliath reverberated among the thousands of warriors on both sides. To the Philistines God needed them to recognize that Israel’s army were not “SERVANTS OF SAUL” but they represented the God of the universe, Jehovah.

In addition, the Israeli army along with God’s Chosen army for today’s battle field needed to know if we would only lift up [our] eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh [our] help. [Never forgetting that our] help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will [never] suffer [our] foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel [and todays chosen army] shall neither slumber nor sleep.

imagesThe Lord is [each of our] keepers: the Lord is [the] shade upon [our] right hand. The sun shall not smite [none of His chosen] by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve [His Children] from all evil: he shall preserve [our] soul. The Lord shall preserve [our going out and [our] coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.” [Even throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity if we believe]” Ps. 121:1-8 (KJV)

God’s Word then tell us David “ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.” Because He rememberd as each of us should if we are “strong and courageous [for God] [and not afraid or terrified to face the enemy]… [the] LORD [our] God[will go before us]; he will never leave [His Children nor forsake [us.]” Deu. 31:6 (NIV) even if we are only AN ARMY OF ONE.

EXTREMIST SECTARIAN, THE FLAVOR OF THE DAY AND THE POLITICAL REALITY OF PROPHECY; Nairobi, Kenya – images“Dozens of extremists attacked a Kenyan coastal town for hours, killing those who weren’t Muslim and those who didn’t know the Somali language, officials and witnesses said Monday.

At least 48 people were killed and two hotels were set on fire. A wife gives her account of the horrifying events of the day “They came to our house at around 8 p.m. and asked us in Swahili whether we were Muslims. My husband told them we were Christians and they shot him in the head and chest,” said Anne Gathigi. (NBC News report)

This catastrophe happen four days ago June 2014, not 64 AD when the Emperor Nero set Rome on fire and accused the Christians which started the beginning of persecution and the sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of Christians who gave their lives for the Master.

Focus my friends, Christian are being killed daily in the 21st century simply because they are Christian and it happens while you are asleep, or on your way to work, or eating your meal, or relaxing in front of the TV, or just maybe you were studying the Word of God building up your faith and endurance to take up the cross of Christ.

Now place yourself in front of that same EXTREMIST SECTARIAN as they ask you point blank are you a Christian, think images37hard friends, now ask yourself what level is my faith today. Peter tells us in 1Peter 4:12-16 (NKJV) Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;

BUT REJOICE TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU PARTAKE OF CHRIST’S SUFFERINGS, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you…. yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.”

BUT REJOICE is the key, rejoice in your suffering for Christ “The Greek term for church is ekklesia. Borrowed from the secular world, it refers to “THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN CALLED OUT.” IN every generation God has called out HIS CHOSEN to reflect His will through their faith, endurance, trust, love, humility and obedience as they give it all to the Master.

Christ tells us Himself “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matt. 5:10 (KJV) But to believe God’s promises in that text we have to have a relationship with our God that places us in His presence as we allow self to die which brings our faith and endurance to a level which PERSEVERES under any situation or circumstances.

“In ancient Rome, crowds by the tens of thousands would gather in the Coliseum to watch as Christians were torn apart by wild animals. Paul Rader, commenting on his visit to this famous landmark, said, “I stood uncovered to the heavens above, where He sits for whom they gladly died, and asked myself, ‘Would I, could I, die for Him tonight to get this gospel to the ends of the earth?”

images4Rader continued, “I prayed most fervently in that Roman arena for the spirit of a martyr, and for the working of the Holy Spirit in my heart, as He worked in Paul’s heart when He brought him on his handcuffed way to Rome.” Those early Christians “lived on the threshold of heaven, within a heartbeat of home [and life eternal, with] no possessions to hold them back.” (Our Daily Bread)

My friends now ask yourself what possessions that the god of this world has placed before you holds you back and “WOULD YOU, COULD YOU, DIE FOR YOUR SAVIOR TODAY TO GET HIS GOSPEL TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH?” and if not then tell yourself  BECAUSE OF MY UNWILLINGNESS TO DIE FOR CHRIST, I HAVE NO DESIRE OR PASSION WHAT SO EVER FOR LIFE ETERNAL AND GOD’S PURE AND HOLY KINGDOM.

My friends “be confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Phil 1:6 (NKJV) 

Today I’m breaking Under the weight of it all And I’m afraid I might fall. Today I’m empty But I AM WILLING TO KEEP god-doesnt-walk-backwards-signLISTENING AND LOOKING FOR YOU IN THE NOISE FOR YOUR QUIET VOICE….’Cause I got nothing left And I’m hanging by a thread I give You all my weakness, You give me Your strength ‘Cause I’m here again, Here at my end Where You begin. (Mandisa Where You Begin)

As a Child of God this Journey God has placed us on probably started years ago but at times it seems as we move forward two steps in our Christian walk we retreat five steps backward which gives the impression in one’s mind that our spiritual growth is always moving in the opposite direction from where we started.

But today I need you to LISTEN AND LOOK IN THE MIDST OF THE NOISE of your daily life and seek the presence of God as you ask yourself do I truly love God and if so do my daily action demonstrate that love I have for him? And if your answer is yes then Paul tells us “those who love God ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD, FOR THOSE WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE….” Romans 8:28-30 (NKJV)

“ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD” my friends but only if you “Set your mind on things above, not on earthly07B8E8310506474BB3C2DEBBC6E6212D things.” Col. 3:2 (NIV) Things above where a FAMILY UNION will take place soon that I hope we are all making plans of attending. I call it FAMILY UNION simply because a reunion is the process of re-uniting, where as a union is more in the presence because once a bond is created that union forever exist and we are never separated.

So by having such a union God cannot be a distance God, or a God that you have to wonder if He is in your life regardless of  the times he may conceal our request or the sound of His voice in order to strengthen our faith. But once that bond is formed, we then have developed a togetherness that will carry us throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.

In addition, a bond or union will hold under all circumstances and situations therefore being in His presence tells us that the Lord, He is the One who [goes before each of us.] He will be with [us], He will not leave [us] nor forsake [us, so] do not fear nor be dismayed.” Deu. 31:6 (NKJV)

That union holds true also with our love one’s who have fallen asleep in God, because as a Child of God we should not be “ignorant, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest [we] sorrow as others who have no hope. So a UNITED BOND was set while they were with us which allows them to be forever in our presence and with that hope and promise from our Savior what I look for is just a continuation of the union and togetherness that I fill from within for God and family, minis sin and the god of this world that continues to tell God’s chosen that his way is what we seek.

imagesMy friends our struggle with sin will never be over until God says “IT IS FINISHED.” We often speak about sin in the past tense but Behold, [we were] shaped in iniquity; and in sin did our mother’s conceive each of us.” Ps. 51:5 (KJV) so sin is a part of our DNA but the good news is, also is the transforming blood of Christ who died at Calvary which because of the shedding of His blood a transfusion will takes place if we will allow it to happen.

But the problem occurs when we do not allow Gods blood to have a continuous flow within us that cleanses us from our iniquities and sometimes HE HAS TO REACH BACK AT THE POINT WHERE HE STARTED but with His love grace and mercy He is willing to do just that and He will continue and through our faith and endurance He will complete what He started “until the day of Jesus Christ”

noah-1And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually….. And Jehovah said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the ground…. Gen. 6:5-7 (ASV)

“Noah did not mix THE SOFT, PLEASING DECEPTIONS OF SATAN WITH HIS MESSAGE. He did not utter the sentiment of many of his day who declared that God was too merciful to do such a terrible work. Many asserted that God would grant the wicked ANOTHER SEASON OF PROBATION; but Noah did not indulge them in the faintest hope that those who neglected the present opportunity, who rejected the present message, would be favored with another opportunity of salvation.” (E. G. White Sings of the Times April 18, 1895)

My friends in our 21 century high tech anything goes world we live in as a child of God like Noah we “CANNOT MIX THE SOFT, PLEASING DECEPTIONS OF SATAN WITH GOD’S  MESSAGE.” I cannot try and make you feel good and tell you a lie that THINGS WILL GET BETTER in our sinful and decaying planet.

We are living at the end of God’s prophecy before His second coming and tomorrow will be worst then today.noah_ark_people_drowing Christ tells us Himself in Matt 24:4 (NKJV) “Take heed that no one deceives you.“ but, Behold, [He is] coming quickly, and [His] reward [will be] with Him, to render to every man [and woman]according to His [or her] works” Rev. 22:12-13 (NKJV))

In addition, I can’t stipulate the fact enough that our God has no desire that anyone is lost. Peter tells us in 1 Peter 3:9 (NKJV) not to “forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”

For God “knows [our] hearts He knows [that neither of us] seldom measure up to what [we] long to be [or what His desire is for each of us but my friends His grace is sufficient and I know this because I am a living testimony] to how far His arms will reach to rescue [everyone who call upon His name] (For the Glory of Christ, Newsong)

For “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (NIV) The message from Christ is a simple one but stern and to the point HE “DOES NOT MIX THE SOFT, PLEASING DECEPTIONS OF SATAN WITH HIS MESSAGE” when He tells us that “the wages of sin IS DEATH; but the gift of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 (KJV)

An example takes us to “Saint Louis in 1984, there an unemployed cleaning woman noticed a few bees buzzing around the attic of her home. Since there were only a few, she made no effort to deal with them. Over the summer the bees when-i-stand-before-godcontinued to fly in and out the attic vent while the woman remained unconcerned, unaware of the growing city of bees. The whole attic became a hive, and the ceiling of the second- floor bedroom finally caved in under the weight of hundreds of pounds of honey and thousands of angry bees.” (Robert T. Wenz.)

My friends our “Socially Acceptable Sins” seems insufficient, they are only a few we tell ourselves but if ignored and not brought under subjection to the transforming power of God’s Spirit in the end the weight of the smallest sin will lead us to Perdition. Prophecy is telling God’s Children today that we do not have ANOTHER SEASON OF PROBATION.

Consistent with this, we also “CANNOT MIX THE SOFT, PLEASING DECEPTIONS OF SATAN WITH HIS MESSAGE,” OF LOVE, MERCY and GRACE so today God is telling us before it is to late and our fate is sealed “lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares [you], and let [each of]us run with endurance the race that is set before us,” Heb. 12:1 (NKJV)


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

imagesMy friends I have come to the conclusion that I will never be the perfect Father, Husband or Christian. Oh but what an example I have to follow and I can say today with no reservation that in “MY FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN” AND ON EARTH a criteria and a standard was set that will always give me a benchmark to live by and reach  and when I do see MY FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN” AND MY FATHER WHO RAISED ME ON EARTH in God’s kingdom I will be able to say Thank you along with my Brother Jesus Christ. “For whoever does the will of MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN, he is My brother and sister and mother.” Matt. 12:50 (ASV)

So much was done that we may all live throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity and as a child of a minister my expectations of the world was a lot different from my fathers because I was forever trying to move in a opposite direction but the older I got and the closer I personally got to MY FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN I can look back and see throughout my life where MY FATHER ON EARTH was trying to take me and that was to a pinnacle I will forever seek until I can here the words,

‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. fathers-day-ppt-background-5Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Matt. 25:23 (NIV) Our foundation and one’s quest in life is mostly based on our father’s and how apparent that holds true when that element is missing from the home.

But thank God for those who can still succeed and move on with a loving mother, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle and a stable family structure in spite of a missing father for the “father is the head of the household. The wife looks to him for love and sympathy, and for aid in the training of the children.

….The children look to their father for support and guidance; he needs to have a right conception of life and of the influences and associations that should surround his family; above all, he should be controlled by the love and fear of God and by the teaching of His word, that he may guide the feet of his children in the right way.

Abraham-Isaac-MormonThe father is the lawmaker of the household; and, like Abraham, he should make the law of God the rule of his home. God said of Abraham, “I know him, that he will command…[and] what he requires of his children he himself should practice, illustrating these virtues in his own manly bearing.” (E.G.White Home Influence pp 390-391)

What faith, a stable foundation and spiritual guidance from Abraham the father and a test of faith from Isaac his son. “When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son.” Gen 22:9-10 (ESV)

We usually speak of Abraham’s faith but the faith of  Isaac to be willing to be sacrificed. I seek daily to be an Isaac to have such faith in “OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN” AND ON EARTH but the ultimate sacrifice of a FATHER and SON is exemplified in God [the FATHER WHO] so loved the world, that he gave his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NIV)

That is a place I hope we are all are trying to get to on this fathers day. The wiliness as a son or daughter to give it all forimages  “OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN” “who did not spare his own Son, and a Son“who was willing to lay His life down for us. A Perfect FATHER A PERFECT SON AND A PERFECT PLAN FOR OUR SALVATION and I hope you make the perfect choice today and give it all to the one’s who gave it all to you and for you to live in a perfect kingdom.

Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors,” 1 Peter 1:13-18 (NIV)

imagesI have come to the conclusion that many of God’s children are falling by the wayside on this Journey Christ has placed each of us on simply because of what we are allowing to come out of our mouth from week to week among our congregation of faith base believers.

In addition, the god of this world has totally blinded us from the potential danger and where our action is leading and who it is Hurting. Our mouth is one of those “Socially Acceptable Sins” we in the body of  believers totally ignore the consequences, but my friends in all we do we must place our example Christ at the forefront and ask, would He allow what comes out of our mouth, to come out of His?

But just like his many blessings for His Children that is stated in His word, He also gives some stern warnings, in Matt. 13:28-30 (KJV) when He speaks of the wheat and tares His servants recognizes that the tares are growing among the wheat as they mention it to the Master, He tells them ”An enemy has done this [meaning Satan has come and planted those who have not given their all to Christ among His body of believers.]

The servants say to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But [Christ] said, ‘No, lest while you gather upimages the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”[Which is His pure and holy Kingdom.]

My friends “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” Ephesians 4:29 (KJV) With “Foolish Talk few realize that they drive away the Spirit of God with their selfish thoughts and feelings, their foolish, trifling talk.

. . . If the grace of Christ were planted in their hearts, and striking its roots down deep into good soil, they would bear fruit of an altogether different character. . . . The converting power of God is alone sufficient to establish pure principles in the heart, so that the wicked one may find nothing to assail. . . . Purity in speech, and true Christian courtesy should be constantly practiced. (E.G. White)

12585673_s-300x222“When Queen Victoria was a child, she didn’t know she was in line for the throne of England. Her instructors, trying to prepare her for the future, were frustrated because they couldn’t motivate her. She just didn’t take her studies seriously. Finally, her teachers decided to tell her that one day she would become the queen of England.

Upon hearing this, Victoria quietly said, then I will be good and do whatever it takes to finish the course that is set before me. The realization that she had inherited this high calling gave her a sense of responsibility that profoundly affected her conduct from then on.”

My friends we also have a High calling from our Savior so we must finish the course set before us by Christ. In addition He has placed an awesome responsibility upon us, to make sure not just those on the outside of the body of believers but also each member within our congregation stays focused on His soon coming. It is no longer about us, self must be crucified as we continue our Journey to the promise land.

titanicApril 15, 1912 the Titanic Departs from Belfast headed to America with 2,233 souls on board, disaster strikes, 1,530 were lost 713 survived. You had THE FIRST CLASS who consisted of the rich and aristocracy of society. In SECOND CLASS you have those who had achieved success and money through work, people in trades such a miners, teachers and clerks.

In THIRD CLASS you have poor families emigrating to the United States. In addition, you had 900 crew members. So the ranged of passengers went from the richest to the poorest with a wide array of reasons why each took this particular voyage. In addition, the ship was designed so that the various social and economic classes never had to meet nor mix while on board.

My friends Let’s make it personnel and look at our own salvation because at the end of the day there were only those who were lost and those who were saved with no economic distinction between them, with only those who were saved able to look back and tell the story of “”HOW THEY MADE IT OVER.”

“A train of cars was shown me, going with the speed of lightning. The angel bade me too look carefully. I fixed my eyes imagesupon a train. It seemed the whole world was on board. Then he showed me the conductor, a fair, stately person, whom all the passengers looked up to and reverenced. I was perplexed and asked my attending angel who it was. He said, “It is Satan. The conductor, He has taken the world captive and they are all going with lightning speed to perdition.”

I asked the angel if there were none left. He bade me [to] look in the opposite direction, and I saw a little company traveling a narrow pathway. All seemed to be firmly united by the truth [and the  love of our Savior Jesus Christ]. This little company looked careworn, as if they had passed through severe trials and conflicts. (E.G. White Early Writings) but they had endured and there reward was life eternal.

Friends, If our desire is to finish this JOURNEY Christ has placed us on, then we must have the character of Christ and allow Him through His Word and Spirit to take full control of our life. Because one day soon God will say it is finish He will also say “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.” Rev. 22:11-12 (KJV)

imgresConsistent with this, “All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.” Matt 25:32 (NIV)  the story of each of our lives is still being played out, but 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 if we are willing to give it all to Him for in His Mercy and love He still extends His grace.

My friends the hourglass still continues but soon our fate will be  sealed and like the passengers on the Titanic it does not matter if you are man, woman, young ,old, rich, poor, educated or just have a third grade education, straight or gay, CEO of a fortune 500 company or flip hamburgers at McDonalds, in Gods sight all sin is an abomination to Him from the person who buys Bootleg tapes,  to Adolf Hitler who killed millions of Jews,  to the slave owner Who treated their black property worst then an animal, to the dregs of society who steal and sell children on the open market, to the employee who just steals stationary from the office.

My friends sin is not categorized in God’s site but this one thing you can be assured of “the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?” 1 Cor. 6:9 (ASV) MY FRIENDS FOCUS, THE TITANIC IS SINKING, WILL YOU BE ABLE TO SAY ONE DAY, “HOW YOU MADE IT OVER” TO THE PROMISE LAND


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

Seeking-the-Lords-face“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and SEEK MY FACE and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, AND WE WILL COME TO HIM [OR HER] AND MAKE OUR HOME WITH [THEM].” John 14:23 (ESV) What a marvelous promise from our Savior who gave it all for our Salvation but we must first through our faith SEEK HIS FACE, HIS PRESENCE, HIS LOVE and HIS GRACE.

In addition, once we have allowed that to happen through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit then this is the awe inspiring part of where I need you to focus today “AND WE WILL COME TO HIM OR HER AND MAKE OUR HOME WITH THEM” I love the part that says WE WILL meaning the Father and His Son.

Now remember the Holy Spirit has already entered our lives when we allowed Him to transform, and restore, to God’s imagesoriginally intent when he repeated the words “Let us make  mankind in OUR IMAGE, IN OUR LIKENESS, So now you have the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit  residing within us, they have made their Home within us.

But the question we must ask our self, are we ready for what is about to take place if we allow that to happen, can our mind and body handle such a takeover. “A few years ago, an angry man rushed through the Rijks Museum in Amsterdam until he reached Rembrandt’s famous painting “Nightwatch. ” Then he took out a knife and slashed it repeatedly before he could be stopped.

imagesA short time later, a distraught, hostile man slipped into St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome with a hammer and began to smash Michelangelo’s beautiful sculpture The Pieta. Two cherished works of art were severely damaged. But what did officials do? Throw the treasured pieces out and forget about them?

Absolutely not!  [Using the best of the best experts, they worked with the utmost care and precision, in RESTORING and TRANSFORMING the treasured art back to its original conditions.] (Swindoll, The Quest For Character,) Now what about our life “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,…” Eph. 2:10 (NASV)

What about when we allow the god of this world access to repeatedly destroy our lives from within as he slashes away at our character and our attempt to follow the precepts of God law of love. Do we allow God’s Spirit total access to RESTORE and TRANSFORM our life back to where God can use us to where everyone we come in contact with will know we have been touched by the Master and that we are His handiwork.

In addition, they will be able to notice that [we] have been crucified with Christ and [we] no longer live, but [GOD THE FATHER AND HIS SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT HAVE NOW MADE THERE HOME WITHIN US AND]. The life [we] now live in the body, [we] live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for [us].” Gal. 2:20 (NIV)

And this was all made possible because I decided that I had allowed the god of this world control of my life long enough jesus-and-meI have even decided to let go of my “Socially acceptable Sins” and SEEK THE FACE OF THE MASTER and now through a joint effort from all of the host of the heavenly realm, I am now “Safe to Save” for God’s pure and holy kingdom and oh what a day that will be 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)

My friends it is time to make a life changing decision. The angels pulled back that curtain long ago, you have seen for some time now where this controversy is headed. But soon very soon “our father which art in heaven” will say IT IS FINISHED so please, please, SEEK HIS FACE TODAY.


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