Webster defines conscience as; the complex of ethical and moral principles that controls or inhibits the actions or thoughts of an individual.

urlEllen White defines conscience as “the voice of God, heard amid the conflict of human passions; when it is resisted, the Spirit of God is grieved” She counsels: “The Lord requires us to obey the voice of duty, when there are other voices all around us urging us to pursue an opposite course.

It requires earnest attention from us to distinguish the voice which speaks from God. We must resist and conquer inclination, and obey the voice of conscience without parleying or compromise, lest its promptings cease.” (Ellen White Testimonies for the Church vol. 5 pp120 pp 69)

God tells Moses in Ex. 7:2-3 (NKJV) “You shall speak all that I command you. And Aaron your brother shall tell Pharaoh to send the children of Israel out of his land. And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt. But Pharaoh will not heed you”

Moses, the voice of reason through God spoke to Pharaoh, but he chose to turn His back on God, remember there was anotherknowhisvoice Pharaoh that recognized God’s presence through Joseph 400 years earlier. But we all make choices weather good or bad, or life and death.

To serve God, our choice. Remember God will not take away our options. But, let’s not get it wrong their is an unpardonable Sin “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.” Matt. 12:31 (NKJV)

But my friends, what we must understand, God does not turn his back or leaves us, it is His Children who repeatedly tells Him over and over that the god of this world has a better plan for their life, one that promises fame and fortune, so we tell God, we  no longer need redemption.

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 14:12 (KJV) The more time we spend intimately with God and His Word, the easier it is to distinguish God’s voice and His leading in our lives, from the forces of evil and the confusion of this world.

imagesEmployees at an airport are trained to recognize counterfeit ID’s by studying genuine ID’s so closely from various states, and countries, that it will be unimaginable not to recognize a fake one, simply because they have studied diligently the real from the fake.

And as a child of God we should be so familiar with God’s Word, that when God does speak to us or directs us through His Spirit that it will be absolutely clear that it is God’s voice who we here. And in so doing, it will verify in our minds, any, and all, truth from error.

In addition, at times we must shut out the world because how can you distinguish God’s voice among the confusion of the world if our TV and computer and tablet and radio and cell phones are what we live by 24/7

“And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to imgres11the left.” Is. 30:21 (ESV) My friends it is impossible to here God’s voice in the midst of chaos and that is exactly what the god of this world has manufactured in the place of a genuine relationship with God through all of our technology which keeps us from hearing that still small voice among the storms of this life.

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me” John 10:27 (KJV) But we must “be still and recognize the  counterfeit, from the one who Gave His only Begotten Son and a Son who “Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Phil 2:8 (NASB)

And His willingness to die on that cross allows us to hear His voice in the midst of confusion and receive life eternal in a place that “no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived…” 1 Cor. 2:9 (NIV)

“The greatest want of the world is the want of men, and women who will not be bought or sold; men and women who in their inmost souls are true and honest; who do not FEAR TO CALL SIN BY ITS RIGHT NAME;

imageswhose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole; who will stand for the right though the heavens fall. HIS LAW IS THE GREAT STANDARD OF RIGHT, AND WITH IT EVERY ACT OF LIFE MUST BE COMPARED……” (E.G. White)

My friends there must be a voice of conscious from within that we just cannot ignore. “And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, INTERPRETING SPIRITUAL TRUTHS TO THOSE WHO ARE SPIRITUAL.” 1 Cor. 2:13 (ESV)

As a Child of God WE MUST NEVER FEAR TO CALL SIN BY ITS RIGHT NAME. we must never fear to turn off our TV and say; the god of this world had a part in creating that show. “I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me.” Ps. 101:3 (ESV)

We must never Fear to say no, when our friends tells us about something they heard, from someone, who heard it from someone else, “Let no corrupting talk come out of [our] mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” Eph. 4”29 (ESV)

We must never fear to choose a piece of  fruit over a candy bar, for we are forever tempted to eat what suits our snackingtaste, not what’s good for us. Thus we “weaken the digestive organs, and injure the power of the digestive system to assimilate the food that is fundamental in sustaining a healthy mind and body.”

“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” 1 Cor. 10:31 (NKJV) My friends “HIS LAW IS THE GREAT STANDARD OF RIGHT, AND WITH IT EVERY ACT OF OUR LIFE MUST BE COMPARED” to Christ life.

So “Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you? Unless indeed you fail to meet the test!” 2 Cor. 13:5 (ESV) My friends we must look at Christ and then look at ourselves, and not with the assumption that we can never reach such a high standard.

But look with the full assurance that Each moment of our life we will be striving for perfection through God’s Spirit for we “press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” (NLT)

Consistent with this, as we move towards our goal we will help someone along the way to reach that heavenly prize also and everyday we must tell ourselves, as we also tell God, I need help this day to make my life all about you and your will.

screen-shot-2012-04-14-at-7-38-42-pmLet out eyes see what He sees and out mouths to speak for Him and not ourselves and our feet to carry us towards his kingdom and our mind to think only on “things above and not on things on this earth” and then allow us to “Consider it all joy…..when [we] encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of [our] faith produces endurance.

And let endurance have its perfect result, so that [we] may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4 (NASV) while never FEARING TO CALL SIN BY ITS RIGHT NAME as we hold firm to God’s GREAT STANDARD OF RIGHT for 1 John 3:2 tells us “Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when he is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”

In addition, make it personal tell yourself, I will not stop until I have the character of my  Savior in all things that pertain to my mind and body as I allow the Spirit of Christ, to transform me into the image of the one who gave it all for my salvation.

imagesI can remember trying to get from New York City to upstate New York to pick up a car in the shop that had broken down a week or two earlier. I started out early one morning to my destination. First the city bus, then the train that took me to the end of the line.

Then I took another bus that took me so far, then I thumbed and walked and thumbed until I saw a cab that took me to my location, OH THE JOY OF THE ARRIVAL!! What a journey from one destination to the next.

And that my friends is a child of God’s life, forever moving from destination to destination and one day soon it will all be over, and OH THE JOY OF THE ARRIVAL!! But thank God we never had to travel along, for there was and is, always a friend who takes a active role into making sure that each destination of our life only makes us stronger.

In addition, after arriving at each destination He was always there to make sure we understood that there are many more, but He prayeralso let’s us know, He will not leave us until we can see His face personally. And OH THE JOY OF THE ARRIVAL!!

My friends “If grace was a deep ocean we would all be sinking beneath the weight of the mercy,” that has brought us thus far by faith and oh the grace that forever keeps us from sinking. My friends have you figured out WHAT GOD REALLY MEANS TO YOU.

Have you figured out what His love, grace and mercy means to where you are in your life today, and  what He meant when a love one died, or the doctor said you had cancer, or when your child no longer believed in the same God you believe in, or when you just needed someone to listen, without condemning?

As we look back over our life, we can’t help but come up with reason after reason what GOD REALLY MEANS TO US. A Friend who has never left or forsaken us, He has always done what seemed like the impossible, and performed miracles.

Seeking-the-Lords-faceIn addition cast out demons, and fought battles, and healed our broken heart, and cured our diseases, and protected and guided us through the ups ans downs of our  life. So today we can all praise His name and say with no reservations GOD KNOW’S OUR STORY, because He was always there.

And today He is the center of our hope and joy because we wake up daily, and see with our eyes the sun rising, we can hear the birds singing with our ears, we have two legs to stand up in church service and wave our hands as the praise team sings.

Yes my friends, our health and strength is not what it used to be, but all of that will change soon at God’s appearing to take the redeemed back home with Him. Today we all can truly say WE ARE BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED by our Lord and Savior who gave it all for us.

So “shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.  Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.  Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.  For the LORD is good and07B8E8310506474BB3C2DEBBC6E6212D his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:1-5 (NKJV)

The journey is almost over, God is just waiting  for His chosen to finish His mandate and today everyone who knows WHAT GOD MEANS TO YOU AND CAN TELL THE WORLD WITH FULL ASSURANCE  AND FROM THE BOTTOM OF YOUR HEART, are a part of His chosen.

A faithful few who daily builds up resistance through God’s word and Spirit to hold firm against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this dark world,” so that nothing will stand in the way as we endure till the end. And one day soon friends, our Savior will give us our reward personally and OH THE JOY OF THE ARRIVAL!!!


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

The foolish rhetoric of our do nothing, politicians as they sit, while the basic rights and needs of all the people they are supposed to be helping continues to move below the poverty line is appalling, to say the least.

imagesAs I look at the direction our country and the world is headed soon my friends we will all be reduced to a two class system, the have and the have not’s “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.” (Martin Luther King Jr.).

In the days of Amos, God says” “Hear this, oh you who would swallow up and trample down the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail and come to an end,” Amos 1:4 (AMP) Sounds familiar, if not let me explain.

We now live in a nation that is led by the god of this world, whose main purpose is to bring the less fortunate down to such a low poverty level, that they will never be able to pull themselves back up, thus causing them to lose all hope.

So as a child of God, it is our responsibility to show them there is hope through Christ and the way we respond with love, to their basic needs. “Inpoor_jesus-235x300 a real sense all life is inter-related. All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.

Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be…” (Martin Luther King Jr.)

As Christians who seeks citizenship in God’s kingdom, we must individualized our stance and compassion for others as Christ did, it must become personal, It must be an individual heartfelt concern from within that only comes about by walking with Christ daily.

In addition, because of that close relationship, it gives us the capacity to love everyone, as Christ loved. But, if we go about business as usual while those less fortunate suffer, we then have decided in our heart “To accept passively an unjust system……thereby the oppressed become as evil as the oppressor”. (Martin Luther King Jr.)

images24Consistent with this, we then become contributors to the negative element that is causing our world to spiral out on control as “iniquity abounds, and the love of many wax cold”

In God’s word The rich young ruler kept all of God’s precepts, And he said to Jesus, “Teacher, I have kept all these things from my youth up.” Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”

But at these words he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property.” Mark 10:20-22 (NKJV)  It takes a village originated with the teachings of Jesus. But the village must be an environment in which families and individuals are supported and strengthened by each of us whose goal it is to walk the same path as Christ walked to Calvary.

Today my friends I don’t speak to the world who’s “mind is set on things on the earth, and not on things above, or to the “fool team jesus_wallpaperwho says in his heart, “There is no God.” But I speak to the Christian whose destiny is Gods pure and holy kingdom.

The bible maintains a clear position on the poor throughout its pages, and, interestingly, it has less to do with them than it has to do with us and how we treat the poor. Today Ask yourself  how can I as a Christian keep from “conforming to the pattern of this world.

And how can I transform my mind, and character as I carry out Gods will in my life as His light  shines through me to others. My friends are we ready to say “Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him,” or do we say in our heart, LORD I JUST CAN’T FIT YOU INTO MY SCHEDULE TODAY


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

“With multiple crises spiraling out of control around the world, stories about the Obama presidency are taking on the air of imagespostmortems.” So now, my friends the spiraling out of control media is asking, and so is a world whose spiritual compass points to “things that are on earth, not on the things above.

“What went wrong and who’s to blame.” My friends let’s see who’s to blame. We now live in a world where the house wives of whatever city is leading in the ratings that week reality show personal are sanctioned by the god of this world and corporate advertisers to give relationship advice to write, and call in’s.

How unfortunate for the individuals who seeks their advice and follow through on it. Then we have More than 3,000 students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who were part of a program, that was implemented by a department head and an office administrator.

The program allowed credit for fake classes over an 18-year period that allowed the students to remain eligible to play sports.A man works at a makeshift oil refinery site in al-Mansoura village in Raqqa Then of course we have ISIS making a million dollars a day selling oil on the black market to the Syrian Regime and Iraqi Kurds, who of course are the same regime they are fighting against.

In addition, they are selling it  from a location in Turkey a country that is one of America’s allies and of course America’s Goal is to annihilate ISIS with daily bombings. So by all accounts, we are living in a world that is spiraling out of control.

A world where THE ROAD OF LEAST RESISTANCE, EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE TAKING and the road with LEAST RESISTANCE is the “wide road that leads to destruction” But as a society it is much easier to blame the president then to quote scripture which comes directly from God’s media source, His Word.

His word has been telling us close to 4,000 years that the world is spiraling out of control, and it started when Satan said “I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” Is 14:14 (NIV)

So now we have “wars and rumors of wars……nation rising against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and famines and 6a00d83451dafb69e200e54f30d9638833-640wiearthquakes in various places. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs [and our world spiraling out of control].

In addition, lawlessness will increase, and the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he, [or she] will be saved.” Matt 24 (NASB) Paul also tells us in 2 Tim 3:13 (ASVB) “evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”

Each of our bible writers was like an artist that came along and put their own unique style on the canvas of prophecy. One by one, they came, each putting their distinct, color and touch on the canvas. And one day soon, Christ will come through the clouds above and He will put the final stroke on this picture.

And oh, the beauty of the final work for “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man” that final picture My friends, and I can say with no reservation, there is no LEAST RESISTANCE way to be a part of it.

“You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the imagesaffairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.” 2 Tim 2:3-5 (ASB)

And my friends, the rules never changes “”Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” Matt. 16:24 (NIV) and that road is difficult “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life [eternal], and there are few who find it.”

So my friends today I ask that you allow God’s Spirit to guide you as you search the scriptures from Genesis to Revelation with your focal point on Christ while asking yourself the question IS THERE A ROAD OF LEAST RESISTANCE THAT LEADS TO LIFE ETERNAL, IF NOT, THEN 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

Seeking-the-Lords-faceChrist Is a Jealous God, He wants our unrestricted attention on Him, if you seek life eternal. I just can’t serve you today, my time is limited, is just not acceptable.

A child of God must believe not only that God exists and that we are created in His image. In addition, we are to give Him all the glory and honor. Our all must be all about Him and “His will be done” “….for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Heb. 11:6 (KJV)

“Saving faith is not merely some firmly held persuasion, but an unwavering confidence in what God’s word specifically states, whether promise or warnings, a blessing for this life or for the life to come, in Gods pure and holy kingdom”. (Ben J. Elston)

But it is all about surrendering to God because we are absolute sound in our belief on every promise in God’s word not just the ones that promise us a happy life through Him “Delight yourself also in the LORD: and he shall give you the desires of your heart.” Ps. 37:4 (KJV)

But also the not so good results, if we make the wrong choices “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof d6dbca4511381d0f0efca1744c141520.500x394x1are the ways of death.” Proverbs 16: 25 (KJV)

When we are totally dependent on God, He continually allows what seems humanly impossible to become totally possible through our faith. But my friends we must REFOCUS our PASSIONS as we keep moving to the Promise land. Because “when you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the journey.”

We need to keep both eyes on the journey, that unlike any other experience in our lives, our Salvation is truly about the journey because even though the destination never changes, the terrain does, starting with death, unemployment, finances, relationships, family, and the list goes on throughout our life.

That is why it has to be a Passion from within that is placed there by God’s Spirit to finish. If you ever watch a pigeon walk you will see it can’t really see where it’s going when it is walking, so it adjusts it’s focus as it moves.

Pigeon-1It actually has to bring its head to a complete stop between steps in order to REFOCUS, HEAD FORWARD, STOP; HEAD BACK, STOP! In our spiritual journey with the Lord we have the same problem as the pigeon. We have a hard time seeing while we’re moving.

We also need to stop between steps to REFOCUS on where we are in relation to the things of this world and Gods will for us. Our walk with the Lord needs to have built into it a pattern of stops that requires a passion to continue, a passion for where this journey is taking us and a passion for the one who gave it all in-order for us to finish.

And each REFOCUS, HEAD FORWARD, STOP; HEAD BACK, STOP enables us to see more clearly God’s will for us before moving on, because my friends at every REFOCUS, HEAD FORWARD, STOP; HEAD BACK, STOP, the god of this world is telling us he has a short cut that eliminates all of the rough terrain.

“If you will only bow down and worship me.” But in the end his way will only lead to a journey of resentment, defeat and in the Calmend destruction. but my friends stay focus as you “Enter through the narrow gate [on your journey]; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:13-14 (NASB)

So continue to “keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2 (NKJV) In addition, if our Goal is the kingdom of God, then we must REFOCUS, HEAD FORWARD, STOP; HEAD BACK, STOP AS OUR FOCUS REMAINS ON CHRIST AS WE ALLOW SELF TO DIE EACH DAY.


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

My friends, this is a very exciting time to be a part of God’s army, let’s go to the book of Esther. I suggest you read the entire book  because it is a story of faith of one man Mordecai who inspired that same faith out of his cousin Esther. And by her courage, faith and devotion she saved her people from extermination.

As one of God’s chosen who is now queen in a foreign land. A land that did not know Jehovah as the true God. She now resides in the comfort of the royal courts. But her faith is now about to be stretched to the limit when Mordecai let’s her know it was ncd03093time to proclaim to the world who Jehovah is.

So after prayer and fasting, she choose to go before the king without an invitation, which could have meant death if he was having a bad day “But the plots of the enemy were defeated by a Power that reigns among the children of men in the providence of God.

Esther appealed to the king, as she ventured into his presence on behalf of her people and God, as an intercessor” (White Prophets and kings pp 601) as the words continued to vibrate in her conscious from what Mordecai had told her.

“Do not think to yourself that in the king’s palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews. FOR IF YOU KEEP SILENT AT THIS TIME, RELIEF AND DELIVERANCE WILL RISE FOR THE JEWS FROM ANOTHER PLACE.

BUT YOU AND YOUR FATHER’S HOUSE WILL PERISH. AND WHO KNOWS WHETHER YOU HAVE NOT COME TO THE KINGDOM FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS?” Esther 4:12-14 (ESV),” Remember my friends it was still the Lord’s Battle, as it had been from the beginning.

And as it is in the 21st century fast pace got to have it now society. We are His faithful, chosen ambassadors for the King of Kingsteam jesus_wallpaper and no matter where we may reside, or work, His name must be placed before all other, for, “salvation [is in no] other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (NKJV).

We cannot be silent about who we serve. When you read the book of Easter you will see there is a happy ending. but a child of God’s life is destined for a happy ending no matter what situation or circumstances, trial or hardship we may encounter while we are foreigners in this foreign land.

But our happy ending requires our faith and grace to abound beyond anything we could have ever imagine and with no reservations we must “know that the testing of our faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that [we] may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:3-4 (NASV)

prayerMy friends we must begin to recognize the urgency in God’s agenda, in regards to the closeness of His second coming, and what requires our passion and dedication, with what time we have left.

If we are God’s Children, and we have allowed Gods Spirit and Word to transform our Character in the likeness of Christ than our time should only be valued in relationship to what God wants done in our lives on this Journey he has placed us on.

And if that is not the criteria in how we value our time and what we do each day, than we must re-evaluate how serious we are about our Salvation and eternal life. Jesus as our example never created such a hectic schedule that He lost sight of what His mission was as He approached Calvary, which was doing the work of His Father.

As His Chosen generation “WHO KNOWS WHETHER YOU HAVE COME TO THIS PLACE IN YOUR, LIFE FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS?” Our love for God is absolute when we remain focused and make our time spent in spreading the good news of the gospel a passion that transcends into an urgency to see souls saved for the kingdom of God. Psalms 90:12 teaches us “to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS”


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

What can angels of heaven think of poor helpless human beings, who are subject to temptation, when God’s heart of infinite love yearns toward them, ready to give them more than they can ask or think, and yet they pray so little and have so little faith? The angels love to bow before God; they love to be near Him. They regard communion with God as their highest joy; and yet the children of earth, who need so much the help that God only can give, seem satisfied to walk without the light of His Spirit, and the companionship of His presence. (E.G. White, Steps to Christ, 94.)

LakeIsabel115721My friends Christ has placed each of His Children on a journey, unique to each of our Character’s. The question we must ask our self , how do we finish a Journey, if we did not realize we were on one. Well, one of the definitions Webster gives for a journey is, it is a “PASSAGE or PROGRESS from one stage to another”

Consistent with this, when we say PROGRESS, that would imply a constant movement in a certain direction, either backward or forwards. And as a child of God that should only mean one direction, forward, as we “lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, [as we] run with patience the [JOURNEY] that is set before us,” Heb. 12:1 (KJV)

We who should be seeking the presence of God daily, sometimes treat Him as an out-of style garment we cast away, when it is no longer beneficial to our needs. Yes the all knowing, all powerful, ever present Creator of the heavens and the earth, “we seem content to walk without the light of His Spirit.”

In addition, He is the one who has set this journey before us which started at Calvary when Christ died for us “While we were stil254801_366859016716029_370370606_nl sinners,” Yes He is the one who paid for our Salvation and has given us the opportunity to finish this journey.

But If God had never told His children “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” And then “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” while “making disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,”Luke 9:23 (NIV)  Acts 1:8 (ASV) Matt. 28:19 (ASV)

Then this Journey would be optional and we could spend God’s precious time in front of the TV, or some other insignificant time consuming activity that has nothing to do with our salvation.

But “BREAKING NEWS” my friends God’s word tells us “As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent us. Night is coming, when no one can work.” John 9;4 (NIV)

So today, let’s stay focused on the roadmap our Savior has given us to finish this Journey, and once again IT MUST BECOME A PASSION that tells us, no mater what circumstances or situation that life presents before us on this journey weather smooth or imagesrough terrain, weather dark sky’s, or sunny.

Our mandate remains fixed, never wavering under any circumstances. Yes we must “proclaim the good news of the gospel throughout the world as we near the end of our journey. So today Let’s give it all to the Master and finish up His work.

In addition, when Christ comes. As Peter tells us “when the Chief Shepherd appears, [we] will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away” 1 Peter 5:4 (KJV) My Friends, we only have a short time to do Gods will, and to rescue souls on a journey the god of this world has placed them on that leads to perdition.

So, let us all say as Paul says, “we are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ.” And we will proclaim it, until we see our savior’s face and He tells us ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’


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

“Nothing that in any way concerns our peace is too small for Him to notice. There is no chapter in our experience too dark for Him to read; there is no perplexity too difficult for Him to unravel…. The relations between God and each soul are as distinct and full as though there were not another soul upon the earth to share His watchcare, not another soul for whom He gave His beloved Son. (Steps to Christ, 99, 100.)

CalmMy friends has it ever occur to you how much our God want’s to react to our daily request, and He wants to do it “according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.


Friends, I need us to make it personal today. Let’s focus on self, YES I SAID IT, SELF! But not the self that…..[is] weakened by the flesh,….Romans 8:3 (NIV) but the “self” that has “been crucified with Christ, [the self that] no longer lives, but Christ [now reigns supreme]”.

That “self” let’s focus on, for that “self” is the “self” God want’s to react to “according to the riches of His glory,” because He is gifts.of.holy.spiritable to fulfill our “need’s exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.

For that “self” “are [His] chosen…, a royal priest or priestess, holy…, an peculiar…; that [we] should show forth the praises of him who has called [His child] out of darkness into His marvelous light;” 1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV) As God’s Chosen we must become “overwhelmed with a sense of the goodness of God.”

And what He is willing to do “For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is his love and kindness towards them that fear him.” Ps. 103:11 (ASV) So as we seek God’s presence with a passion, our Savior never ceases implementing the miracle of redemption in our lives.

urlJohn 15:7 (NKJV) says If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. The good news today! There is a king and a Lord, who is named Jesus Christ. And He has declared that the free gift of salvation along with every blessing recorded in His word is available to His Children for the asking.

So humbly and sincerely ask now, and receive the blessings that God the Father has ordained, if we believe, since the beginning of time. My friends, Life will always bring it’s challenges, but there is always God’s blessings.

Sometimes those blessing could just be the awesome knowledge of knowing that our faith and endurance is stronger than we thought, simply because we gave it all to the Master, or that blessing could just be the teaching of God’s love, grace and mercy in a way that gives us hope and assurance too finish this journey He has placed us on.

Or it could be when the fierce storms in our life continues to rage out of control, in the still of the night, the blessing of that stillteal-exceeding-abundantly-a small voice as we lay prostrate before Him that just says “I will never leave you, or forsake you.”

My friends, Each faithful follower of Christ is born with a unique bond to God because He is our “Father which art in heaven,” and our creator. But as time passes, and we become more acquainted with the god of this world and more attached to earthly things, our bond with God weakens, and is eventually broken.

“But God stands at the door [ He knocks, He waits] if any man [or woman] hear [His] voice, and opens the door, [He] will come in” and “DO EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK” “ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT WORKS IN US”


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

“And from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood.” Rev. (1:5 ESV)

images35“The first reference in the New Testament to the blood of Christ, Christ states Himself at the last supper: ” For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matt. 26:28 (NKJV).

“There are at least 43 references to the blood of Christ in the New Testament, all testifying to its great importance in the salvation and daily life of the believer.” Judas the betrayer spoke of it as “innocent blood”

“Then Judas, who betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, I have sinned in that I betrayed innocent blood.” Matt. 27:4 (ASV)

Peter tells us it’s “precious” in 1 Peter 1:19 (ASV) “But with precious blood, as of a lamb without spot, even the blood of Christ ” Paul calls it theblood-of-christ-610x351 purchasing blood in Acts 20:28 (ASV) Take heed unto yourselves, and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit hath made you bishops, to feed the church of the Lord which he purchased with his own blood.”

Paul also calls it the redeeming blood in Eph. 1:7 (ASV) “in whom we have our redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,” John calls it the cleansing blood. 1 John 1:7 (ASV) “ but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

Consistent with this, “There is a stream that flows from Calvary, A crimson tide so deep and wide. It washes whiter than the purest snow.” Its saving virtues ever are the same, It cleanseth still, and always will. Poor sinners who will seek the Savior’s face Shall know His wondrous grace. No other fountain can for sin atone But Jesus’ blood, O precious flood! And whosoever will may plunge therein, And be made free from sin.”

JesusOnlyWayMy friends as the Master takes full control in the transformation of our Character, as He eliminates the dirt and mire that has accumulated throughout the years, it is only the blood of Christ that purifies, only his blood that saves and redeems us from the penalty of sin.

“But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,” Rom 5:20 (ASV) In addition, that text tells each of us that was “born in sin and shaped in iniquity” that we cannot out sin the grace of God, so no matter how far the god of this world has taken us, God’s hand can reach just as far to save us, as He places us on a straight course to life eternal.

“The last reference in the Bible to the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ tells us “And they overcame Him [or Satan] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Rev. 12:11 (NKJV)

In this text, the blood is the overcoming blood, enabling believers to withstand the deceptions and accusations of Satan. And imageshow does the blood and death of our Savior make the Dirt and mire of A sinner’s character A candidates for God’s pure and Holy Kingdom.

Well His death at Calvary summarizes Christ infinite love for everyone. And once we as His Children  have been washed in His blood, the believer then “dies to self and lives a new life through Christ” while asking Christ “what must I do to be saved” and not my will but thou will be done”.

And each day as we purify our lives by the standard of Christ we will stay focus on what Jesus is trying to do in our lives, as we recognize that to be able to stand before our Savior one day with a pure white robe that was washed in His blood, we must have the faith, endurance and passion to maintain a close and personal relationship with Him daily, while understanding that THE BLOOD OF JESUS, IT WILL NEVER LOOSE ITS POWER TO SAVE.


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