For then there will be a great tribulation, such as one,[that has] not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.…. For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah…and they did not understand until the flood came and john-3-16took them all away…..” Matt. Matt. 24:21-22, 37-39 (NASB)

Have we become too busy, or just uninterested, in telling the world of its ultimate destruction, but that the good news is, the final chapter brings about life eternal, to all who has faith and endures to the end. My friends, that Eternal ending, is the part of this story and our journey we all should be seeking daily.

But once again I need you to make it personnel, focus on self, because at some point on our Journey all of Matt. 24 will become real to everyone who is living. We are now at the threshold of prophecy. In addition, God’s word is a complete look into the beginning and the end of all prophecy, which must be fulfilled before we enter the “promise land”

Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. Therefore be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.” Matt 24:42:44 (NASB)

So today, Let’s picture the world as an out-of-control airplane about to crash. This is typically the point where people begin to pray SINGAPORE-AVIATION-SIA-AIRBUSas they call out God’s name, as they look for answers in a very short time period. What is happening? why is it happening, as they cry out to the Lord.

In addition, there will be some who just give up, as they say; well I lived a good life, which means there good life is all they have to cling on to. But for those who genuinely seek answers. Your family, friends, live one’s, co-workers, all are petrified.

Mothers are telling their kids, “Mommy loves you, Mommy loves you,” over and over again, with no concrete solution as to how to comfort them. Suddenly the oxygen masks deploys…” panic goes to another level, but no one knows what to do, they never heard or read the instruction because they were occupied with the things of this world.

In addition,they don’t understand that the oxygen is life, life that can only come from God’s word and Spirit. So now you are totally conscious of all that is happening, because you have been in the presence of God and His word daily.

urlMy friends, Satan’s desire is that all are destroyed and no one accepts life and the saving power of Christ that is right in front of them. It has now become personnel, we have read the instructions, so now we must carry out God’s mandate of hope to everyone as this world descends into ultimate destruction.

Right now there is still cabin pressure, which is God’s grace, this is the time we must be giving others hope and telling them about the promises of a new life in God’s word.

“Let us keep fresh in our memory all the tender mercies that God has shown us, the tears He has wiped away, the pains He has soothed, the anxieties removed, the fears dispelled, the wants supplied, the blessings bestowed,–thus strengthening ourselves for all that is before us through the remainder of our pilgrimage.

We cannot but look forward to new perplexities in the coming conflict, but we may look on what is past as well as on what is to imagescome, and say, “Hitherto hath the Lord helped us.” “As thy days, so shall thy strength be.” Deuteronomy 33:25. The trial will not exceed the strength that shall be given us to bear it.

Then let us take up our work just where we find it, believing that whatever may come, strength proportionate to the trial will be given.” (E.G. White Steps To Christ pp 93-94) my friends, we are now in descent, we are losing cabin pressure, you have the instruction, you know, life is only in God’s word and Spirit, now you must let the world know.


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

imagesAs a child of God I can say without any reservation, I am war weary and utterly exhausted and depressed by war, especially after such a prolonged conflict. And not from a conflict with Isis, Iraq or Afghanistan, but it’s the war that goes on from within my life each day.

Paul explains it this way; “For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate…..” Rom 7:15 (NASV) “For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.

For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.” Romans 7:18-20 (NIV)

In addition, each day if our desire is life eternal in God’s kingdom the battles continue, there is no waving a white flag because surrender, in the wake of this conflict, means destruction. So the battle must continue, that is why Paul also tells us that each Day we must be “crucified with Christ.”

It can no longer be about what we want, or our desires. Sometimes it’s as simple as, do I get a second helping of food, or eat that prayerpiece of cake we know is not good for us, or turn to a TV program that has nothing to do with our Salvation, or get on our phones because we just have to call Mary, or John and tell them what Kathy or Bob said about Kim or Ron.

My friends, Christ has to have total access “and the life we now live in the flesh we have to live by faith in the Son of God, who loves us so much. His word tells us that His love for us is so powerful and He demonstrated this “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

So as that conflict continues from within, His love continues. “There are many whose hearts are aching under a load of care because they seek to reach the world’s standard. They have chosen its service, accepted its perplexities, adopted its customs.

Thus their character is marred, and their life made a weariness. In order to gratify ambition and worldly desires, they wound the conscience, and bring upon themselves an additional burden of remorse. The continual worry is wearing out the life forces.

slavery-and-the-bibleOur Lord desires them to lay aside this yoke of bondage. . . . He bids them seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and His promise is that all things needful to them for this life shall be added. (Ellen G. White, The Desire of Ages, p. 330.)

My friends we can’t keep telling ourselves, I will just let this conflict from within continue. Paul’s battles from within he recognized but in, 2 Tim 4:6-8 (NIV) he tells us, “For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store wpid-hp-main-261x300for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”

My friends, even though, those battles seem to continue to rage in our lives each day, we must live like it is our last day on earth, and even though, “what we are doing, we do not understand; for we are not practicing what we would like to do, but we are doing the very thing we hate.

Somehow friends, we must allow God’s Spirit to penetrate the unknown places of our life we have never allowed him to go before, and don’t let Him leave until we can say as Paul, I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me, life eternal.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life,….Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matt. 6:25-27 (NIV)

surrenderMy friends as God’s chosen, each day that we travel along this journey Christ has placed us on, as we face the many difficulties, the battle continues to rage on, if we attempt to fight each one, all at once, and by ourselves, we are sure to suffer defeat.

But if we trust God and take our trials one by one, to Him, we will find “that we can only know the power that he holds, when we truly see how deep our weakness goes. His strength, it must begin when ours comes to an end, He hears our humble cry and proves again His strength is perfect when our strength is gone He’ll carry us when we can’t carry on.

Raised in his power the weak becomes strong, because His strength is perfect when our strength is gone” (CeCe Winans) In every situation and circumstances of our life, why should we worry if our God does not worry? Health issues Matt 8:6-8 (NKJV) tells us

“Lord, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.” Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?” The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word and my servant will be healed. My friends, do we have such faith, for He is Jehovah Rapha, the Lord who heals.

What about financial problems, Matt 17:27 (NIV) states “go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; Peter and the coinopen its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.”

In addition God tells us to “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.” Mal. 3:10 (NKJV)

Our God tells us to try Him now in this, He doesn’t worry about money, why should you “For every beast of the forest is His, “the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.” Ps 50:10-11 (KJV)

Problems filling our pantry once we have paid our tithe and bills Matt. 14:17-21 (KJV) says “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” “Bring them here to Me,…. And He directed the people to sit down. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and broke the loaves….

And the disciples gave them to the people…….The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.” “for I am Jehovah Jireh, the Lord who provides.” Have a problem with Satan Mark 5 tells us. Immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit………

When he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and bowed down to him, and crying out with a loud voice, he said, “What have I to do with imagesyou, Jesus, you Son of the Most High God? …..” For Christ said to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”……”

In addition, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” If we have connection from above,  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 4:6-7 (ESV) My friends our God is Jehovah Nissi, the Lord our banner, for He will give us Victory over everything we feel we have to worry about and in the end we will be more than conquerors through him who loved us.” and never worries.

gifts.of.holy.spirit“As God’s Chosen many have failed to receive all of the power God is willing to give us through His Spirit, during this probationary period before His soon return.

We expect that what we are lacking in faith and endurance, will be supplied, like some magician that pulls a rabbit out of his hat, instantly it appears. We feel when the richest and abundance of God’s grace is bestowed, we can then open our hearts to receive, after self is taken care of.

Oh I am ready now Lord, where is that Spirit you were telling me about. That my friends is a terrible mistake. “The work that God has begun in the human heart, in giving His light and knowledge must be continually going forward.

Every individual must realize his own necessity. The heart must be emptied of every defilement, and cleansed for the indwelling ofcome away76 the Holy Spirit …”(E.G. White) In Acts 3:18-20 it tells us “But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer.

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you even Jesus.”  My friends “the times of refreshing.” Those are the key words we as Christians must seek.

If our mission for the Master is to be completed in our lifetime. The complete transformation of the power of God’s Spirit should be going on in our lives right now as we allow His power to convict, instruct, guide and empower each believer who is seeking God’s kingdom.

Luke-11.11-13And Friends there should not be any doubt, as we look at the world today, that our Savior will soon be here. The question we all must ask ourselves is, will I personally be a leading vessel for Christ during this time. For Paul tells us in 2 Cor. 4:5-7 (KJV) “For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

There must be a constant development of Christian virtue, a constant advancement in a Christian experience. This we should seek with intensity as we  “receive power when the Holy Spirit come [upon us]; and we will be Christ witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (NIV)

My friends we have to make a decision today for tomorrow is not promised to us. And that decision must be. Do we allow God’s transforming power through His Spirit to take full control of our Characters, as we become passionate about spreading the good news about Christ soon return and how His presence has made a difference in our life, to a world where sin abounds deeper and deeper each day.

As Christians we must first be on one accord in mind and body with Christ and the body of believers. For it was only when the preachingDisciples came together on one accord  through God’s Holy Spirit that allowed the day of Pentecost to happen. Acts 2:1-4 (NKJV) gives us the climax of a body of believers coming together on one accord for the finishing up of the work of the Master.

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost. Today my God’s grace is still extended to each of us. But remember the ending of this story will soon take place, it was set on Calvary When Christ said it is finished. and the final credits will read. Jesus wins, Satan loses!!!

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

CalmGod created us for greatness not to just be mediocre, His inspiration and motivation through His Spirit should challenge us to make extraordinary things happen for the glory of God. Remember this is God we are talking about and we are His children. “anything His children and heirs of His kingdom ask in His name it shall be given to us”

“Now if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” Romans 8:17 (NIV) God has invested in us, He actively involves each of us into finishing up His mandate; to go into all the world and tell everyone of His love, grace, hope, and mercy.

In addition, let them know of God’s desire for them to have “life, and have it abundantly.” His desire also, is that all may receive life eternal, through Jesus Christ His Son. My friends yes I regret, not being the man I should have been, but thank god I continue to endure, because my God has never let me forget that I am His Child.

In addition, we are “a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, [and as His children it is our responsibility to]created-chosen-called declare the praises of him who called [each of us] out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)

God made us “in His image” But Satan brings about distractions, we are not made to be followers at the bidding of Satan and manipulated by government and corporate advertisers, we hear a voice telling us, don’t forget scandal comes on today so we rush to our TV’s.

Remember God’s spirit is also saying pick up your bible and read it, get on your knees and pray, go visit the sick, seek my presence daily. “In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream at night; and God said, “Ask what you wish Me to give you.”

“Then Solomon said, “ I am but a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. Your servant is in the midst of Your people which You have chosen, a great people who are too many to be numbered or counted.

solomanSo give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”1 King 3:5-7 (NASB) My friends, His request was all about God and what He thought God would want.

James tells us “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But we must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. James 1:5-6 (NASB)

My friends, how can we ever acquire the wisdom, God is willing to give us, the wisdom of a “man or woman after God’s own heart.” The wisdom from an Omniscience, all knowing God, if we don’t seek after His presence daily.

God tells us in Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV) “seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” So if we are not at imagesthat point in our life we thought we should be at Nov. 16, 2014, it does not matter, God is still on the throne, so through His grace we still have a chance to make extraordinary things happen through Him.

For “I am certain that God, who began the good work within [each of us], will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Phil. 1:6 (NIV) Oh the love, grace and mercy of God, who promises to

continue his work in us until it is finally complete,” then we shall see Him coming through those clouds above, and with Him “He will bring [our] reward with Him, and [He] will give to every man [or woman] according [to] his work…” Rev 22:12 (KJV)


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






“But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; My steps had nearly slipped. For I was envious of the boastful, When I saw the arc.of_.the_.covenantprosperity of the wicked….. Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.” Ps. 73:2-17 (NKJV)

David tells us he almost slipped, because his focus went from the presence of God, to being fixated on the one who said, “I will make myself like the Most High.” this is when he “went into the sanctuary of God”

My friends, the world has so much to offer “that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death. Prov. 14:12 (NIV)  Trying to stay focused “on things above, not on things on the earth” is a challenge that will take heartfelt and sincere prayer to stay focused on our Salvation.

God tells Isaiah in Is. 3:10-11(NIV) “tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds. Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them they will be paid back for what their hands have done.”

We must all look back on where God has brought us, and where this journey he leads us on, will take us, as we realize The Good imgresShepherd must be our fortress against the god of this worlds attempts to lead us away from His presence.

Satan will keep us thinking that the world owes us, so we must keep pursuing after it. In addition, we continue to acquire the things of this “world that passeth away, and the lust thereof….” 1 John 2:17 (ASV)  Let’s focus today my friends at the fate of the wicked in Sodom and Gomorrah.

First God reveals to Abraham in Gen 18 that He will destroy Sodom and Gomorrah “And the Lord said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know.”

300px-Genesis19-17Then Abraham pleads to the Lord “Suppose ten should be found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten. Oh the grace of God. We now go to Gen 19 God has now revealed to Lot, Get out of this city and take your family with you, because I will destroy it.

“So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking. When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying,

“Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city.

And while he lingered, this my friends shows us the marvelous grace and mercies of God, because in spite of Lot and his hesitance to leave all of his belongings and go. My friends Abraham pleaded, “if only 10” would you save Sodom, there were only three.

His wife almost made it, but her focused remain on the things of this earth. Today do we linger as Christ pleads for us “to come prayerout of Babylon” remember “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 (NASB)

My friends, please take time each day and seek God’s presence in your sanctuary. Like David once he went into the sanctuary, he understood the wicked’s fate of destruction and the redeems eternal reward” and like David who “told everyone about the wonderful things God does.”

As God’s chosen, we must also tell the good news to a world of the mercies grace and love of Christ. and about his soon return and what he has prepared for all who have faith and are willing to endure and believe in the saving power of Christ who died for all.


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

“Their cry arouses Jesus. As the lightning’s glare reveals Him, they see the peace of heaven in His face; they read in His glance calm the windself-forgetful, tender love, and, their hearts turning to Him, cry, “Lord, save us: we perish.” Never did a soul utter that cry unheeded.

As the disciples grasp their oars to make a last effort, Jesus rises. He stands in the midst of His disciples, while the tempest rages, the waves break over them, and the lightning illuminates His countenance. He lifts His hand, so often employed in deeds of mercy, and says to the angry sea, “Peace, be still.” (E.G. White Desire of Ages “Peace Be Still” pp 355)

My friends the world parishes, as they seek peace. And they will continue to parish, “for when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.” 1 Thess. 5:3 (NKJV)

In addition, “There is no peace,” says the Lord, “for the wicked.” Is. 48:22 (ESV) so now let’s make it personal, let’s make it about you and I as we cry out each day Lord, save me: for I perish as the tempest rages and the waves break over us, and the lightning illuminates His countenance.

And as He lifts His hand, and says to the angry seas of our life, “Peace, be still.” My friends peace, that is what we seek Animated Waterfalleach day. For peace is not just in the absence of danger, or the trials and tribulation of our life being eliminated.

But as you close your eyes picture along with me a waterfall cascading down a rocky precipice, or a mirror-smooth lake reflecting lacy green birches under the soft blush of the evening sky, or a  grassy shore, where a flock of sheep are grazing undisturbed.

And then picture a little bird that has built a nest in the elbow of a branch, content and undisturbed in her stormy surroundings, as she rest on her eggs with eyes closed and her wings ready to cover her little ones, as she perceives the silence that transcends all earthly turmoil.

Oh the beauty, in the creation of God. But my friends no peace can we describe with our finite minds, or transcend all of earthly turmoil like being in the presence of God. “Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin? The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

HomeComing-300x225Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed? To do the will of Jesus, this is rest. Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round? On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found. Peace, perfect peace, ’mid suffering’s sharpest throes? The sympathy of Jesus breathes repose. Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away? In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.

Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown? Jesus we know, and He is on the throne. Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours? Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers. It is enough: earth’s struggles soon shall cease, And Jesus calls us to Heaven’s perfect peace.” (Edward H. Bickersteth,)

That my friends gives us somewhat of a picture of perfect peace. Jesus tells us himself in John 16:33 (ESV) I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the 7_heaven-300x225world.”

And as Christ, our example we also can obtain perfect peace But not in a world that has lost it’s spiritual compass but My friends, perfect peace to a child of God is not only being in the presence of God but also being in a place “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man, [a place] which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Cor. 2:9 (NKJV)

family, Friends, love ones, neighbors, co-workers, those we have witnessed to, and a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds and people, and tongues, Patriarchs and Prophets, the holy Angels, God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Heaven and life eternal. Now my friends that is what I call perfect peace.


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

imgres3My friends are we at a crossroad, one that requires a choice that takes us down a path that we either want to go down, or may have some reservations in taken. As vessels chosen by God, are we at a crisis point in our lives as Christ second coming in our life becomes more of a reality than ever before.

Today let’s focus on, are we living a life, conducive to someone who really has a desire for life eternal. When Christ said “I will go and prepare a place for you, and I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” John 14:3 (KJV)

The part of that text that says and I will come back, did it ever occur to us it could actually be in our life time. So now we are at a crossroad, the decision we make today, will determine our eternal destiny.

But my friends God loves us, so it is at our crossroad when Christ personally through His Spirit tells us “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live” In addition, Satan also makes a dramatic presentation of fame and fortune.

So today as we stand at a crossroad there are two signs, one pointing to our Savior Jesus Christ and eternal life and the other is poryadok_deastvypointing towards a path bound for perdition. The choice is ours. God’s Spirit will not force us to choose life over death.

Consistent with this, God’s Word is like a mirror into our lives. As we get to our crossroad we must realize as we look into that mirror of life, how far short we have fallen from the glory and purity of God and of the high standard set for us by Christ.

Soon that crossroad will fade out of our consciousness. But many will still claim admission to Christ’s kingdom as an entitlement, a legacy that has been handed down going back several generations.

But my friends “we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” 2 Cor. 5:10 (NIV) For everyone who seeks the presence of God daily the decision is a simple one to make.

p-034-2In addition, ever child of God is like “The ten virgins [who] are watching in the evening of this earth’s history. All claim to be Christians. All have a call, a name, a lamp, and all profess to be doing God’s service.

All apparently wait for Christ’s appearing. But five are unready. Five will be found surprised, dismayed, outside the banquet hall. [if we say we really want Christ to come] We cannot be ready to meet the Lord by waking when the cry is heard, “Behold, the Bridegroom!”

And then gathering up our empty lamps to have them replenished. We cannot keep Christ apart from our lives here, and yet be fitted for His companionship in heaven.” (E.G. White Christ Object Lessons pp 413-414)

“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of jacobs-troubleGod in the face of Jesus Christ.” 2 Cor 4:6 (ESV) My friends today God’s light shines, but it will never illuminate outside the presence of God if our daily heartfelt and sincere cry is not Lord “not my will but thou will be done.”

The novelty of a crossroad is fleeting, the political climate tells us to “choose this day whom you will serve,” The place that Christ went to prepare for us is finished, there are no more mansions to be built, no more trees to be planted and no more streets of gold to be paved.

“Michael [will soon] stand up, the great prince who standeth for the children of thy people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” Daniel 12:1 My friends today, please give it all to the Master.

Jesus-Christ-Praying-Wallpapers-16-300x225Jesus knew for a while what He had been called to do by His father For humanity. From a human standpoint his mission was unattainable. But as our example He knew this event will be recorded from generation to generation to strengthen each of us through difficult times.

In addition, as our example it becomes all about totally Submitting our will to Christ. Remember my friends this is humanity that recognizes the difficulty of His journey in Gethsemane and Submitted.

This is humanity that dreads the suffering that He will encounter, but Submitted, humanity knew the path would seem impossible but Submitted and because of the power of the word and the power of his prayers and the power of His faith he, stayed focused as He submitted His will to the will of His Father “which art in heaven.”

“Father, he says, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will and His Father gave him jesus_117the strength to Submit, endure and finish the course that was set before him. But my friends like Christ, our faith and endurance, must also bring about submission.

Consistent with this, a submission, and a wiliness through our faith that we can only gain by studying God’s Word as we allow God’s Spirit to transform, and restore our Character into the image of God. The path that Christ choose was a very difficult one But  in the Garden, Humanity took its toll at just the thought of failure.

But just as Christ agonized and prayed for strength, we must do the same as time moves toward Christ soon return when there will be trials that seem unbearable, as we begin to ask, right in the middle of totally submitting where is God His voice is silent should I continue.

But at that moment, we must look back on all of God’s promises and say with passion and sincerity, as we submit to the will of God, “not my will but yours be done”. Deuteronomy 31:8 (NKJV) says “the lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

“The captain of a ship looked into the dark night and saw faint lights in the distance. Immediately he told his signalman to send lighthousea message” “Alter your course 10 degrees south.” Promptly a return message was received: “Alter your course 10 degrees north.” Immediately the captain sent a third message, knowing the fear it would evoke:

“Alter your course 10 degrees south, I am a battleship.” Then the reply came “Alter your course 10 degrees north, I am a lighthouse.” (Paul Aiello, Jr) In the midst of our darkness and confusion, several voices we will hear some from family, some from friends, some from outside sources, and let’s never leave Satan out of the mix telling us what to do and how to adjust our lives, one way or another in his direction.

But if we seek God’s presence daily in prayer and his word, if we listen real close, out of the darkness, one voice will signal mustard-seedsomething quite different from everyone else, “But we must be willing To keep listening for Christ in the midst of the noise For His quiet voice as we ask.

Are You telling me to go? Are You telling me to stay? Are You telling me to hold on to You for another day?  I have nothing left, that is why I’m here again, at the same place I started years ago, so please don’t tell me you will have to start over. But, that still small voice, the light of the world will only say Submit.

My friends, not my will means we will pursue righteousness at all cost, we will endure the path of the cross at all cost. God calls his children to have a life of purpose, and that purpose must go far beyond what we think as humans, we are capable of achieving as we Submit totally to the will of God.


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

Purpose; the reason for which something exists or is done.  My friends let’s make it personal today let’s evaluate our reason for existing as we shift our focus to self and self’s purpose, as we take a walk up that hill to Calvary.

My friends, is our purpose, too have the best, the largest, the most outstanding. Is our purpose, that our outer appearance are what others look at and decide, we have arrived at the pinnacle of what all should achieve at being?

And then the final question we must ask ourselves is, does our purpose and what we are trying to achieve, have anything to do with Jesus Christ and Him crucified. In addition, when we get on our knees are our prayers centered around the questions, “not my will but thou will be done” or what must I do to be saved.

In addition, what do I lack Lord to accumulate treasures in heaven as I follow you to the cross? “purpose moves people to remake reality31the world” “Purpose creates new social and economic models driven by people and enabled by technology” sounds like you?

Wikipedia  tells us British philosopher “Bertrand Russell was a prominent anti-war activist; he championed anti-imperialism and went to prison for his pacifism during World War I, he campaigned against Adolf Hitler, then criticized Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War, and was an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament.

In 1950 Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.” He was also born into a Christian home and taught to believe in God, but he rejected his training and became an outspoken atheist. His daughter, Katherine Tait, said of him, “Somewhere at the bottom of his heart, in the depths of his soul, there was an empty space that once had been filled by God, and he never found anything else to put in His place.”

What a sad ending to someone’s life, in spite of all he did for humanity, but never fulfilling God’s purpose in his life. “Then Satan entered into Judas called Iscariot, who was of the number of the twelve. He then went away and conferred with the chief priests and officers how he might betray him to them.

1JUDASATTABLE30PIECESSILVERAnd they were glad, and agreed to give him money. So he consented and sought an opportunity to betray him….. “While he was still speaking, there came a crowd, and the man called Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them. He drew near to Jesus to kiss him, but Jesus said to him, “Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?” Luke 22:3-6, 47 (ESV)

Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood.

And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went imagesand hanged himself. Matt. 27:3-5 (KJV) Judas a disciple of Christ in the presence of God each day with no purpose.

Two men, at one time or another in their life was acquainted with God but died with no purpose. My friends, once again it has to be personal weather you are a lifelong Christian, or you just found out there is no one like Him. What is your purpose in relationship to the one who gave it all for your Salvation.

Grace is still on our side and once again the political climate tells us, soon God will say it is finished and soon there will be no time or grace left for those who have no purpose and no faith to endure, till the end of their journey too 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
