“FATHER, FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY DO.” And they divided His garments and cast lots. Before this point in time the world was not justified for Salvation, But at the cross, Satan was defeated, and even the centurions who were part of his crucifixion were included in the saving grace and 2013-faith-church-final-words-father-forgivepower of Jesus Christ.

In Luke 23:47 (NKJV) it says So 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. Those ten words spoken by our Master, the hope of violence is overcome by peace, hatred is conquered by love of the Master’s grace.

Even under the greatest pressure while enduring the most gruesome and humiliating pain, Our Savior responded to Hatred with love, “FATHER, FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY DO” Matthew 5:44 says ” But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” forgiveness is a choice of a child of God that we make through a decision of our own will, motivated only by being obedient to God and his commission to forgive as He forgives.

Colossians 3:13 (KJV) tells us to “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against imagesone another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” By possessing the attitude of forgiveness, you will also embrace the characteristic of love, peace, joy, hope, and gratitude. My friends, forgiveness is The greatest gift each of us who seek the kingdom of God can give.

“It’s the gift that keeps on giving.” In addition, forgiveness doesn’t minimize or justify the wrong. You can forgive the person without excusing the act. Forgiveness brings a kind of peace that helps you go on with life in the loving arms of our Savior and Him crucified who took it upon Himself to set an exemple for us to follow throughout our life.

Matthew 6:14-15. (NKJV) tells us “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. “In a dream, Martin Luther found himself being attacked by Satan. The devil unrolled a long scroll containing a list of Luther’s sins, and held it before him.

forgiveness-3On reaching the end of the scroll Luther asked the devil, “Is that all?” “No,” came the reply, and a second scroll was thrust in front of him. Then, after a second came a third. But now the devil had no more. “You’ve forgotten something,” Luther exclaimed triumphantly. “Quickly write on each of those scrolls, through ‘the blood of Jesus Christ God’s son, I have been forgiven and now I am cleansed of all sins.”

As we look over our life think on all the abominations we have brought before our Savior Jesus Christ, and now think of all the times He has told us too “go, and sin no more,” only for us to repeat the process of sin over and over again. So today, we are to forgive as Christ has forgiven us. Peter come to Christ with the question.

“How oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?” Christ taught that we are never to become weary of forgiving so He tells Peter “until seventy times seven.” “Man was under the condemnation of the broken law.

He could not save himself, and for this reason Christ came to this world, clothed His divinity with humanity, and Seeking-the-Lords-facegave His life, the just for the unjust, He  gave Himself for our sins, and to every soul He freely offers the blood-bought pardon.” (E.G. White)

In Matt. 10:8 (KJV) Christ tells us “freely you have received; freely give.” We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. At the very heart of Christ ministry was a simple concept and that is to love one another as we love one’s self.

So How are we to love others, as we love ourselves? well first we start with a compassionate and contrite heart as we focus on the words of our Savior as he was Dying on that cruel cross “FATHER, FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY DO.”


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

imagesAnd Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?” my friends oh to have such faith, to lay prostrate before our Savior in heartfelt prayer as we lay out our petitions for his grace, mercy, forgiveness and restoration before Him and at that moment, He feels a surge of power from within leave His countenance, as we are made whole.

And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I SHALL BE WHOLE. “Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.

Jesus, immediately knew that power had gone out of Him, “Who touched My clothes?” He asked. But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, “Who touched Me?” But, He knew.

So He looks around, and their trembling before the Master, knowing what miracle had just happened to her, fell down before do-you-hold-the-right-hand-of-jesus-300x198Him in total awe and admonition at what had just occurred in her life. And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well.

Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.” Mark 5:29-34 (NKJV) Whenever we speak of this Bible Story, we usually deal with the healing aspect of the story instead of the power of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified to save the sinner sinking deep in sin.

His ability to perform miracles is secondary to our Salvation. Paul tells us in Ephesians 3:20 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.”

My friends let’s not miss the message of Christ Actions by focusing only on the miracle of His healing power, and not on His Saving Grace and all He is willing and able to do for us. Often when Jesus healed in the gospels, He told the person that was healed not to tell anyone.

prayerIt was not because He was trying to hide the power of His miracles. But He knew the need of everyone’s focus to be on the saving power of His name. “for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (NKJV)

Twelve years of constant blood flow. What physical strength the woman with the issue of blood must have endured to get to the Master. Exhausted and smothered by the crowd, oh so desperate just to get to the Savior. Finally falling prostrate to her knees as she told herself, “If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole”

Reaching, crawling, oh what PASSION as she reached out her hand and touched His garment as He passed her. My friends that was all it took. “Lord, you have examined me and know all about me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts before I think them. You know where I go and where I lie down. You know everything I do. Lord, even before I say a word, Ps. 139 1:4.

She just needed the endurance to not give up, and to reach in faith, a faith we must all have as we tell the Goof Shepherd, I need imagesyou, please don’t pass me by, I don’t mean to waste your time, but I have A passion deep down inside just to touch you.

Every Situations and circumstances in my life tells me I have no hope, but I here in your touch There is hope for the hopeless, Rest for the weary, Love for the broken hearted, while at the same time your grace, mercy, and forgiveness is sufficient, as you meet me at whatever place in my life I am.

And through the storms, He tells us to “BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD” “for I will never leave you, or forsake you, for my mercy and grace knows no bounds, and all we have to do is ENDURE AND REACH OUT WITH THE TOUCH OF FAITH


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

As Children of the King, we are told that God’s sole desire is that we have a happy life, as we seek His kingdom and life eternal. But, every command that Jesus gives us to get through this life to the next is not a easy, attainable path.

Man on topLove our enemies, “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you” Matthew 5:44(NKJV)

Turn the other cheek. “But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.” Matthew 5:39 (NKJV) to receive life eternal in God’s Kingdom those commands are doable, then this Journey gets a little tougher.

In addition, I have to start making choices between my family and God. “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life.” Matt. 19:29 (NKJV)

And Then the toughest command of them all “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross imagesdaily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. Luke 9:23-24

My friends in this rat race, every man or woman takes care of themselves world we live in today, the narrow road to the kingdom really seem like unattainable mandate’s from God. But my friends it’s all about the journey and believing in all the promises in God’s Word.

In addition, believing in the plan, for our Salvation, which was implemented from the foundation of the world that makes life eternal for all, possible if we believe God gave His “ONLY BEGOTTEN SON” TO SHOW US, THIS JOURNEY IS POSSIBLE IF WE BELIEVE AND ENDURE TO THE END.“

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.” 1 Cor.10:13 (NIV) And that way is Christ Jesus “The only name by which we can be saved.”

26.-God-Is-LoveIsaiah 48:17 (NKJV) also tells us “This is what the Lord says your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.” also in Matthew 19:26 “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

Christ recognized the difficult road before him. He stayed focus on Calvary, it never came down to either, or, His sacrifice, was an example for all mankind as we travel this journey to the promise land as we continue to tell ourselves, there is no greater love. Consistent with this, if we believe and if we have a passion to know God we should know the only security we all have is in the loving arms of our Savior Jesus Christ, who gave it all for us TO OBTAIN THIS GOAL.

Psalm. 46:1(NKJV) says God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. So today as we move closer to Christ return through our faith and God’s power through His Spirit we must extend to the world our knowledge for “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon [you];

Because the Lord hath anointed [His chosen generation] to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent [us] to bind up the imagesbrokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.” Isaiah 61:1 (NKJV)

Every excuse in word and action, with every element of fear and faithlessness not to live our life totally centered on our Savior was challenged and answered on the cross.

Like Christ who forever stayed focused on His goal, places each individual who has decided to endure till the end, in various situations, and circumstances, in order to instill upon Them, duties that will be peculiar to the times in which they live, and the various conditions under which we as Christians are placed in order to tell everyone about the good news that THIS JOURNEY IS ATTAINABLE TO ALL WHO BELIEVE.


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

man-running-with-horses-785672Jeremiah 12:5 (KJV) tells us The Lord Answers Jeremiah “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan”?

In other words, my friends, if you’re worn out in A 5k footrace with the forces of evil, as you go through the trials of this life each day, what makes you think you can handle a full MARATHON as we begin to enter into the last days of this life’s history.?

It’s time we begin to move at rapid speed  as we prepare ourselves and take the good news of the gospel to others. like Jeremiah, God’s chosen generation “for such a time as this,” has allowed life to wear us down as we become absorbed in self-pity, and doubt in trying to endure to the end.

Jeremiah was ready to abandon it all, and then a word from the Lord tells him, If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have052408_piaa_aab1600 wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? Life is difficult, Jeremiah, are you going to quit at the first wave of trials and opposition?

My friends, Are you going to retreat when you find that there is more to life than having plenty of food each day and a comfortable bed at night to sleep in? God calls all of his Children to pursue righteousness, to sustain a drive toward excellence.

God calls us to have a life of purpose far beyond what you think yourself capable of living, Because He will sustain and provide us with the adequate amount of endurance to fulfill His will in our life. but to  make this MARATHON INTO A SPRINT, it must become all about our faith and our wiliness to serve, as we allow self to die daily.

If thou art not able to encounter lesser dangers, how wilt thou be able to overcome greater one’s in the time of trouble. As a child of God mentally we must be equipped for what lies ahead, Christ tells us himself in Matt. 24 How dreadful those days will be.

PANews+BT_N0230451369014669226A_I1In addition, “great distress, unequal to any we have seen from the beginning of the world until now and never to be equaled again.” Those words can’t possibly be from a reliable source? Can we truly say everything in the bible is authentic or “God-breathed”?

My friends we only ask our self these questions when the god of this world places before us his interpretation of God’s word so that our minds will stay focus on the “cares of this life, and that day [will] come upon [us and we will be] unaware. Of what is happening” Luke 21:34 (PSV)

but “Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!……..” Pa. 119:1-176 (ESV)

My friends God’s Word is where we begin to exemplify our faith as we look at the world we live in and come to the conclusion, jesus on the way to calvarythis MARATHON HAS NOW TURNED INTO A SPRINT. Consistent with this, we must now understand, with no doubt, that our “faith is being tested in order to produce endurance so that our endurance will have its perfect result, so that God’s faithful may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4 (PSV)

Christ on the Mount of Olives as He was praying, he recognized the difficult road before him. This is the humanity of Jesus, he knows that our Father, has called him to do the unattainable from a human standpoint. So Remember this is humanity that recognizes the difficulty of this journey.

This is humanity that dreads the suffering that He will in counter, humanity knew the path would seem impossible, but it was also humanity and the Son of God who died on the cross so that we can finish this Journey Christ has placed us on to the promise land. So friends today, let’s POSTURE OURSELVES FOR A SPRINT, Christ will be here soon.


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

SO HOLD ON JUST A LITTLE BIT LONGER!!! Friends what does it mean to endure to the end. James tells us “Blessed is the Athletics, runners at finish line, overhead view (Digital Composite)man [or woman] who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life” James 1:12 (ESV)

Paul also tells us in Romans 5:3-4 (ESV) “we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,” a quote from Nelson Mandela also tells us

“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.

I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”

Christ Himself tells us in Matt. 24:12-13 (KJV)  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he [or imagesshe] that endures to the end, the same shall be saved.” Webster gives a more precise definition when he says endure is “too support adverse force or influence of any kind; suffer without yielding; suffer patiently:”

My friends the three words I need you to focus on today is SUFFER WITHOUT YIELDING or without giving up, that is the hard part of a Christians quest to go the distance, because no one likes to suffer. Nelson Mandela tells us he did stop to rest, my friends rest is good, it replenishes our motivation to keep moving, to stay focused and to hold on to our faith.

But then President Mandela tells us as he looked all around, oh the beauty of the surroundings, he probably even layed down in the beautiful “green pastures” as he gazed upon the crystal clear “still waters.” But, that is the word we all should learn to use when our circumstances stretches our faith to the limit and all we have to hold on to if we are God’s children is our faith in a God who will never leave or forsake us.”

1312231085Like the the three Hebrew boys who told the king right before he was to throw them into the furnace of fire “our God. they tell the king, whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand.

BUT IF not, let it be known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” There faith allows us to focus on Paul’s quote again, which states“WE REJOICE IN OUR SUFFERINGS, KNOWING THAT SUFFERING PRODUCES ENDURANCE”

Now going back to President Mandela, his rest and comfort begins to become his motivation instead of his endurance, so now he realizes his responsibility to himself, others, and most of all God and it is at that point he looks back on the distance he has come, and then he says.

I can only rest for a moment, for I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.” But like our saviorJesus-Christ-Praying-Wallpapers-16 endurance can be ours through THE CROSS we carry. Like Christ who agonized and prayed for strength to finish the course that was  planned for our redemption, we are to do the same.

In addition, as time moves towards Christ soon return and the trials of this world seem unbearable, as we ask ourselves, where is God. It is at that moment, we must look back on His promises. when He tells us “The LORD himself goes before you” ……So Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

“But God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV) and then my friends “the one who endures to the end will be saved.”


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





When someone dies it allows each of us to look back over our life and focus on what our self worth will be to others in this short probationary period God has given us from birth to death to make a difference in the lives of others.

20111130__1201-a1-funeral~1-c_400Consistent with this, what is the time span we are looking at. The Psalmist tells us “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.” Ps. 90:10 (KJV)

As I begin to meditate on the meaning of the words, “if I can help someone along the way, then my living shall not be in vain.” It becomes personal as I look over my own life thinking, WHEN THE SUNSET OF MY LIFE REACHES ITS PEAK, HOW WILL THE ENDING OF MY STORY READ?

At most funerals the obituary that is read is all about one’s Character and the life they lived from day to day before they died. The question we must now ask our self, how can we make a difference in everyone’s lives along this journey Christ has placed us on.

In addition, how can our legacy have a positive and loving impact on others, IN THE FINAL SUNSET OF OUR LIFE. Now putHourglass Sand Timer Beach Sunrise yourself in the place of someone  reminiscing over your life, then tell yourself, if I am a Child of God who has lived by the precepts of God’s anointing power, then everyone will be able to say, I am a better person because we were a part of there lives.

My friends today through God’s anointing Spirit, focus on the talents and resources God has allowed you to have, and ask yourself how can I benefit those around me, as I Die to self daily while allowing Christ to transform, more and more of me, until He has total control and how can our passion be TO HELP SOMEONE ALONG THE WAY ON THIS JOURNEY TO THE PROMISE LAND.

My friends as we approach the final days of this life’s history there will be a sharp contrast from a child of God and those who follow the forces of evil. For Paul tells us in 2 Timothy 3:1-5: (the message bible) “Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead.

As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous pof parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God.

They’ll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they’re animals. Stay clear of these people.” But A Child of God in these last days, our mission statement must come from Christ own words when He tells us.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35 (KJV)

In addition, “Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was26.-God-Is-Love completed by his works; and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.” James 2:20-24 (ESV)

My friends, “Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us,” Ephesians 5:1-2 (The Message Bible)



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




images“The Journey my friends we are almost at an end “I can say with full assurance “we are close enough to hear the sound of that mighty rushing wind and it’s closer now than it’s ever been. I can almost hear the trumpet as Gabriel sounds the chord at the midnight cry. And soon we’ll be going home”

Can you hear the sound, can you look over your life and read the long list of sins that at times  gave you the feeling of those who have no hope. But today we tell ourself, we hear the voice of our FRIEND, our SAVIOR, our MEDIATOR, our ADVOCATE and our JUDGE the love of our life say NOT GUILTY.

AMAZING GRACE HOW SWEET THE SOUND. 13.1 miles, a half marathon, the closer you get to the finish line the anticipation, the adrenaline that flows through every fiber of you being, then you see a sign that says 3 miles to go.

Not long now and then you see the crowds, the cheers as you move down that final stretch, you cross over the finish line, it now BLD097551dawns on you, I’ve made it. I am a conqueror, such a small feat when you know there are runners that have accomplish far greater achievement, but today it’s personal, it’s about you, it’s your victory.

The faith in knowing nothing was powerful enough to defeat self from finishing. The time, preparation, endurance and the heartfelt passion to make it happen and no one can ever take this victory away.

You receive a medal, you place it around your neck, it doesn’t say that you came in first placed or finished in any particular time frame, what it says is you finished, you crossed over with your torch still in hand.

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? …..Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

more-than-conquerors_wide_t_nvWho shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. ”Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

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 created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:31-39

My Friends all who seek God’s kingdom can say with full assurance that the ending too our story has been written, we can now say, we hear the sound of those trumpets because we are “confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” Phil. 1:6 (KJV)

Do you have the passion to finish, if you do God is looking for workers for “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” At normal_Jesus_Heaventhis point in your life Christ must become the center of all that’s good and perfect, to be Christ disciple you must allow self to die as you deny everything that you hold dear to you in this world and take up your cross as you say “NOT MY WILL, BUT THY WILL BE DONE.

In addition, if you “seek first God’s kingdom and his righteousness, all these things will be given to you” and that includes life eternal. If you have such faith and know you can endure long enough to cross over the finish line, then you cam now begin to hear the sounds of a great multitude, that have also crossed over with torches still in hand which no man can number, of all nations, kindreds, people and tongues, and you can also vision yourself standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in a white robe and with a palm your in  hand. “SOON AND VERY SOON MY FRIENDS”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


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





figs“From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you KNOW THAT HE IS NEAR, AT THE VERY GATES. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place…” Mark 13:28:31(ESV)

My friends once again, we have “Breaking News” and I ask you today how many more do you need to see come cross your flat screens before you realize what it all means in regards to your Salvation.

Ask yourself, what is salvation worth to you “When you reach that FINAL SUNSET and you look into HIS EYES, will the tears you shed be tears of joy or would they be your last goodbye.” It will be a tragedy to get to that day that you waited for all your life, and realize that all you had accumulated and accomplished on this earth “COULD NOT COMPARE TO ETERNAL LIFE”

And now it is all lost because the god of this world continued to lead you down the path of unrighteousness, for narrow is the road to life HomeComing-300x225eternal and very few will find it because very few are willing to allow self to die and let Christ take full control.

What must we still gain on this earth, hasn’t God told us in 1 Cor. 2:9 (NKJV) “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Today we stand at the threshold of the promise Christ revealed to us in John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled…. he is going to prepare a place for us,” and once all preparations have been made, then our Father will say to His Son let’s go get my Children.

So friends, I have no reservation about what I am about to say and I pray you feel the same, “BREAKING NEWS,” all preparations have been made in God’s pure and holy kingdom. All the jewels have been set in the entry gates, walls and foundations, The golden streets and sea of glass are complete.

artofduguayAll the fruit trees have been planted, all the mansions have been constructed and furnished, the heavenly choir have no more songs to learn, they wait patiently along with the “thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand of angels” for the grand finale when the “new Jerusalem, [will] come down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Rev. 21:2 (NKJV)

But, oh the mercy and grace of our God who knows there are a few of his children that still stand at the door of indecision as he pleads “come after me,..[deny yourself] and take up [your] 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?…..” Matt. 16:24-26 (ESV)

My friends it is imperative as Christians that we remain Focused as we surrender our all to the Master. In addition, when that happens it all becomes about trusting and having faith in a God, that has done it all for our Salvation. It must become all about him and what our required mandates are in finishing God’s agenda here on earth.

We each have our own responsibility as leaders to lead out in bringing Christ name to the forefront of the mission fields which is the imagesspace and territory we all live in. We are God’s “BOOTS ON THE GROUND” We are the chosen generation for “SUCH A TIME AS THIS.”

Just Like “in the days before the flood, [when the world was] eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, [up] until the day that Noah entered the ark, [they] did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Matt. 24:38-39 (NKJV)

If you seek Salvation and the kingdom of God, “BREAKING NEWS” WE ARE AT THE DOOR, so now we must all step out in faith today and ask our Savior “Not my will but thy will be done”


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

“BOOTS ON THE GROUND”; Are ground forces actually fighting in a war or conflict, rather than troops not engaged or Hundreds of coalition forces servicemen and women met aboard Camp Leatherneck, Helmand province, for a September 11 memorial service. During the service, Maj. Gen. John A. Toolan, commanding general of Regional Command Southwest and II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward) gave a speech reflecting on not only the lives lost 10-years before, but also on the heroes who have fought for the freedoms America stands for.individuals waiting on a sign. My friends, the sign is, prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes each day, and God needs workers.

The conflict begin over 6,000 years ago when Satan said in His heart ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north. ‘I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’ Is.14:13-14 (NASV)

And then the controversy begins between good and evil that lead to Michael and his angels [who] fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.

So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to !cid_796A23BDF5A64316886312FA16CB7FDD@CarolSmithPCthe earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Rev. 22:7-9 (NASV) but “All who are heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him” as we carry the good news of Christ soon coming, to a world where the god of this world and his angels now resides.

The soldier’s first article of faith is summed up nowhere more eloquently than in an 1865 letter from William Tecumseh Sherman to U.S. Grant: “I knew wherever I was that you thought of me, and if I got in a tight place you would come–if alive.”

This is the unwritten, unspoken but unbreakable contract of the battlefield: You will leave no one, dead or alive, in the hands of the enemy.” And there is only one way to go in and rescue a fallen comrade and that is “BOOTS ON THE GROUND”

JesusOnlyWayThere must be an consorted effort as one, to take it upon ourselves, to take the power Christ has given each of us through His Spirit and to move quickly because the “angels [are] standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth” waiting for God’s children to respond to the call of the Master to “go ye into all the world. “telling them “there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

And that name is Jesus Christ and He will be here soon. My friends, OUR BOOTS will not always be successful, and most of the time our labor will not be apparent in this life, But the promises of God tells us “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done.” [in carrying out His mandate, in telling the world of His saving grace and mercy.] Rev. 22:12 (NASV)

In addition, as the world’s redeemer, Christ was constantly confronted by Satan, that what He was trying to accomplish would fail. But He would not be discouraged. For He would forever stay focused on His mission, which was Calvary and our Salvation.

So therefore our responsibility  and duty as Christians as we enter into the last phase of this life’s history before Christ soon imagesreturn, is to make saving souls our No. one priority. My friends success can only be obtained with “BOOTS ON THE GROUND”.

Consistent with this, It will never be accomplished in front of our televisions or shopping at the Mall. As Christians we must have a passion engrossed with love, and A Heartfelt and concentrated zeal for saving souls as we follow Christ mandate To take the “Gospel of the kingdom throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

When we as Christians follow the course set before us by God, our focused must never waiver it must be all about Christ and His will for us in spreading the good news of His soon coming. as He uses our BOOTS AS A SOURCE THROUGH HIS SPIRIT TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.


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

“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.” John 15:7-9 (ESV)

smallgroup“The Second Coming of Jesus, mentioned more than three hundred times in the New Testament, is the capstone of our teachings. It is essential to our identity as a [body of believers in the Christian faith].

The doctrine is engraved in our name, [Christian believers], and it is a crucial part of the gospel that we are called to proclaim. Without the promise of His coming, our faith would be in vain. THIS GLORIOUS TRUTH GIVES US A SENSE OF DESTINY AND MOTIVATES OUR MISSIONARY OUTREACH.” (Carlos A. Steger)

My friends I could end this devotional right there because that statement says it all. But what we all must seek is a passion, that if we believe in the promises of God and endure until the end, we will be going home soon, “we can now begin to count the years as days”.

For Christ Comforts His Children as He tells us not too “Let our heart be troubled;” “when many begin to come in My name, dreamstime_11119857saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and you hear of wars and rumors of wars, as nation rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom and there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But these things must come to pass,” but if you endure and believe what my mission was all about and what love it took for the father to give His only begotten Son and no greater love then a son to lay down his life, then you must also believe that]

“In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also…” Matt 24 (NKJV), John 14:1-4 (NKJV)

6213314_sAs a Child of God the TRUTH must be embedded within us while at the same time we have this DRIVING PASSION that MOTIVATES OUR MISSIONARY OUTREACH. As leaders we must lead by example, willing to do whatever it takes to serve Christ, the one who gave it all for our Salvation.

Now is “not the time to break Under the weight of it all [We must] keep listening and [seeking our Savior’s quiet voice in all the noise, and “breaking news” of this world as He tells us, I need you tell your neighbor’s that I live and I will be here soon.

I need you to tell your co-worker that I died on the cross for their sins , and I need you to tell your classmates that the Son of GodA young man trying to share the Bible with two young women. Conquered death on Calvary and now He lives in our heart if we will let Him. I also need you to let everyone know that “My grace is sufficient for [everyone], for my power is made perfect in weakness….” 2 Cor. 12:9 (NIV)

In addition, we can no longer allow the god of this world to set our agenda, Christ has given us a mandate “For this [we] were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that [His Children] should follow His steps:….. and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds [we] were healed. For [we] were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of our souls.1 Peter 2:21(NKJV) and with THIS GLORIOUS TRUTH WE NOW HAVE A SENSE OF DESTINY THAT MOTIVATES OUR MISSIONARY OUTREACH.
