In Luke 11:1 (NKJV) it tells us “as Christ was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray” and “The Lord’s prayer” it is called, is Jesus-Christ-Praying-Wallpapers-16-300x225what He taught them, because only the Lord can fulfill our daily petitions if we believe, because it then becomes a prayer about a God who knows our every need even before we ask Him.

And a God who is willing to “give us this day, our daily bread.” Not our weekly, monthly, or our yearly bread, but our daily bread. This is where I want to take you today my friends, because this journey to the kingdom that Christ has placed us on requires a daily walk with our Savior. Christ tells us in John 6:35 (KJV) “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

What an awesome promise to His chosen generation who seeks His presence “whoever comes to me will never hunger, or thirst” and if I read that right, never is an infinite number which has no end and  if we thirst after righteousness: we shall always be filled. In addition, our Savior is telling us we have to also crave Salvation.

It must be a passion we seek daily just like our craving for physical nourishment, we must also crave daily to be filled spiritually, and it can only come from God’s word and the indwelling url7of the Holy Spirit, for if we seek our Savior with a passion our focus will no longer be of this world “but whoever drinks of the water that [our Savior] shall give will never thirst….[because He]will become in [us] a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:14 (NKJV)

“The Bread of Life,” and a fountain of water who lives in us; and once we have been filled spiritually we then will allow self to die and begin to live by faith in the bread of life who is the Son of God, who loves us and gave Himself for all who believes.” For He is the “living bread that came down from heaven and Whoever eats of this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” John 6:51 (NKJV)

Now my friends, what will you give in return for eternal life. Remember Salvation is free, but at what price. Let’s never forget we were on the auction block when Christ saved us, a slave to sin, and the god of this world, but our Savior paid the ultimate price for us which was his own blood that was shed on Calvary. And now because of what Christ has done for each of us we should be willing to give Him our all.

never-thirst-editPaul tells us in 1 Cor.15:10 (NKJV) “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” Yes my friends, we must make it a personal challenge to ourselves and work harder than anyone else, as we serve the Lord, and take the good news of the gospel to everyone.

For Christ tells us “Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” John 6:32 (NKJV) and today this becomes our mandate, that we “go into all the world” and tell them about the bread of life from heaven as we let our light so shine that all may see Christ in us.

14qRrKoQ2N2eOrDgoSMfcgeOS9UToday, let’s make it real personal as we take a journey into the upper room on the day of Pentecost where you have according to Acts 1:12-15 (NKJV) some 120 men and women who has gathered as Christ had commanded them before His ascension, do “not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the Promise of the Father, which we now know was the Holy Spirit.

This is where the Christian church begin and today since it is personal, we are going to add our names to that list which will make it 121 believers in the upper room who has come to Jerusalem along with pilgrims from all over the world to celebrate the day of Pentecost.

121 believers of the body of Christ together which is a “ratio of approximately 1 Christian to every 500,000 to 580,000 from that point The Christian church exploded in growth. Tens of thousands were converted” (Mark Finley) This shows each of God’s chosen who are committed to serving God, the power of God and His Spirit, when we as Christian’s come together as one and have an upper room experience.

And this is where we recognize on one accord, the hope, grace, mercy and the assurance from the Good Shepherd that states in His Word “the Lord loves the just and will not forsake hiscapture faithful ones Ps. 37:28 (KJV) “And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house…”

Oh my God, that mighty rushing wind, which was the outpouring of God’ Spirit, is what we all must seek with a passion as we re-live an upper room experience each today. In addition, our lives will never be transformed if somehow we are only consumed by the atmosphere of fellowship in a beautiful worship service at church, or if time permits we may be compelled to feed the homeless, or visited the sick.

No my friends, only an upper room experience can transform us which is a personal and heartfelt experience with Christ and His Holy outpouring_330x220Spirit that takes us on a Journey that leads to a total commitment to Christ and His will for what He wants to accomplished through us as His chosen vessel.

And only in that upper room can we “stay always within the boundaries where God’s love can reach and bless [us as we], wait patiently for the eternal life that our Lord Jesus Christ in his mercy is going to give [His faithful].” Jude 1:21 (KJV) as we seek His presence in an upper room experience.

And today, we all must seek such an experience for our “Lord, has searched each of us and  He knows each of us personally! “He knows when we sit down and when we rise up; He discerns our thoughts from afar… He searches out our path He is acquainted with all of our ways.” Psalm 139:3 (KJV)

So as a Child of God let’s also search out our Saviors path, and get acquainted with all of His ways Today in the upper room for he is more than just our Savior He is also our friend. “Ohimages9 what a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer in the upper room as Christ becomes a personal Savior as we allow our lives to be transforms into His likeness in preparation for His kingdom.

In addition, this experience is never about location, but about the experience, one receives just being in the presence of Christ. it could be as we drive in our car down the street, or at work, or in the “hiding places on the mountainside,” or in the solitude of a room at Home, what’s important is an experience and relationship with Christ that can be as simple as laying across our bed as we take our countenance to a place that only an upper room experience with Jesus can take us.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy friends, we can define a storm, as a violent disturbance of the atmosphere with strong winds and usually rain, thunder and lightning. And as the storm rages above us, the eagle soars also, not necessarily to escape the storm, but it uses the storm to lift it higher.

It rises on the winds that bring the storm. And like the eagle when the storms of our life rages, we too can rise above it by setting our faith and mind towards our heavenly Father. Today the world under the control of the god of this world perishes on so many levels and it is only our faith that will enable us to ride out the winds that bring about sickness, tragedy, a rebellious child.

Problems in a marriage and at the job and all within the sphere and domain of a world where Satan’s only goal is to stretch our faith to a limit so that at “13,000 feet or at the point of our “anxiety, burnout and depression” we will just turn the auto pilot on as our lives descent into utter destruction.

My friends this is at the moment, where Satan encourages us to give up and no longer recognize the grace and mercy of a God who gave it all for us on Calvary, it is also at the moment urlwhere our life will have to weather the storm, while understanding that true peace, and hope, only comes through Christ and His Spirit.

And this is also at the moment the raging storm becomes calm, and the temperas waves subsides enough for us to say. “If it was not for the Lord on my side where would I be.” Yes real peace, and hope, comes when in the middle of the storm, and when the raging waves seems to be taking control, we can find rest in the loving arms of Jesus, as we face the storms of our life head on and rise above it while knowing that our God is always there.

The Bible says, “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.” Isaiah 40:31 (KJV) Also in Joshua 1:9 (KJV) it also tells us “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

imagesYes my friends, doing the final day of life’s history as we begin to enter the threshold of the promise land, we must be willing to say, God, I can’t figure out what is happening in my life, in fact I will not even try to, I’m just going to trust You to give me a vision of discernment that will allow me to rest in your arms as I ride out this storm.

And In addition, no matter what happens in our  life, if we remain focused on the saving grace of a loving Savior and say with passion “our hope is built on nothing less then Jesus blood and righteousness. We dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name. On Christ, the solid Rock we stand; All other ground is sinking sand.” then, my friends, we will make it into the promise land,

So today, our faith and God’s word must tell us to hold on and endure, as we rest in the loving arms of Jesus and each day, as our faith is strengthened, our God will complete what he has started in each of us. Paul also tells us Phil 1:6 (KJV) “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

So until we see our Savior face to face, just accept God’s plan for your life as we rest in his presence, while allowing the storms of life to prepare our Character for eternity. And then and only then can we experience total peace and happiness throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.

150326135745-superhero-02-germanwings-0326-large-169“Transponder data shows that the autopilot was reprogrammed during the flight by someone inside the cockpit to change the plane’s altitude from 38,000 feet to 100 feet, according to Flightradar24, a website that tracks aviation data. The plane’s cockpit audio recorder captured horrific sounds.

The captain, somehow locked out of the cockpit, can be heard banging on the door, Robin said. And screaming can be heard on the150326104114-large-cut-only-andreas-lubitz-facebook-large-169 audio recording for the final few minutes of the flight. For those on board when the plane plunged into the mountains, Robin said, death was instantaneous.” (CNN News)

My friends can you imagine what was going on in the minds of the crew and passengers who saw their fate with no chance of changing the course. The captain seeing the descent of the plane, beating desperately in utter desperation to no avail. Is that our reactions to the daily beating of Christ at the door of our hearts asking to come in, getting no response from us, only a lack of concern for who is doing the knocking.

Today, let’s focus on the time of Noah in comparison to the 21st century “Many at first appeared to receive the warning; yet they did not turn to God with true repentance. They were unwilling to renounce their sins. During the time that elapsed before the coming of the Flood, their faith was tested, and they failed to endure the trial.

RH-NoahAndFloodCollageOvercome by the prevailing unbelief, they finally joined their former associates in rejecting the solemn message. Mercy had ceased its pleadings for the guilty race. Noah and his household were within the ark, “and the Lord shut him in.” A flash of dazzling light was seen, and a cloud of glory more vivid than the lightning descended from heaven and hovered before the entrance of the ark.

The massive door, which it was impossible for those within to close, was slowly swung to its place by unseen hands. Noah was shut in, and the rejecters of God’s mercy were shut out. The seal of Heaven was on that door; God had shut it, and God alone could open it.

So when God’s judgments shall fall upon the earth before its deluge by fire, the impenitent will know just where and what their sin is, the despising of His holy law. Yet they will have no more true repentance than did the old-world sinners.” (E. G. White Patriarchs and Prophets Chapter 7: The Flood)

My friends Prophecy is before us and this world is “ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth,” that we have been in descent for the last 2000 years since Christ shed His blood on our behalf on Calvary and now Satan is about to take all who feel safe with him in the cockpit and controlling the flight to perdition.

In addition, soon God will tell His Son to go get His Children and “the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer, butHourglass Sand Timer Beach Sunrise in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets. Revelation 10:6-8 (NKJV)

My friends, today we can change the course of our life before it plunges to destruction due to our desire for what we are accustomed too in this world. But today we must give it all to Christ, the only one that can save us with the blood that He shed, so that we who believe can be saved. But we must endure and have faith before grace ceases to be, so let’s all keep our focus on;

“The Lord [who] is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with [all of His children], not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. [and receive life eternal] 2 Peter 3:9 (NIV)

Diego-Frazão-Torquato-300x300A story is told of a young boy giving his first violin recital. He had studied hard for years under the guidance of one of the greatest masters in all of Europe. The boy had outstanding talents a feat very few his age accomplishes.

As he stood on the stage before an audience of hundreds of music lovers, he performed with great proficiency after each selection, as the crowd cheered him on. He was the finest young performer they had ever had the pleasure of hearing. And yet the boy seemed not to notice. In fact, some later commented that he almost seemed annoyed by the applause.

At the conclusion of the recital, the entire audience rose and gave the young performer a standing ovation as they shouted “Bravo, Bravo, Encore, Encore” and other words of praise and appreciation, throughout the theater. However, the young musician was motionless as if not to hear his surroundings.

Instead, he stood looking up into the balcony where an old, withered man sat, looking back down at him. Finally after some consideration, the old gentleman smiled and nodded his headHourglass Sand Timer Beach Sunrise in approval. Only then did the boy seem relieved as if a weight had been lifted off his shoulders, as his young face beamed with joy and delight.

You see, the cheers of the crowd meant nothing, the praise was meaningless unless he had the approval of the Master! And like the young violinist, we are also in a performance and each day we stand on the world stage but it is all meaningless if we don’t have God’s approval, as we stand in His presence each day and say “Lord not my will but thy will be done”.

Remember Satan realizes the sand of the hour glass has just about run its course, the history books will close soon and everyone according to his works would have either been sealed by the blood of Christ or decided that this world and perdition is sufficient for their eternal happiness.
images9But when it is all over they will cry out ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then [Christ] will declare to them, ‘I never knew you…” Matt. 7:22-23 (ESV) That text tell us how easy it will be to be blinded by Satan into thinking, our works are sufficient for God’s approval for our Salvation.

My friends, God’s approval is all about staying in the presence of God as we allow self to die each day. One day Empire, Scandal and dancing with the stars would have run it’s course and everyone will be debating about the finally for months. But then Satan will create another must watch TV show that occupies God’s precious time for another ten seasons and the cycle continues.

We must never forger, in God’s precepts where He tells us; I am “a jealous God.” meaning, He wants “no other god’s before Him” or anything that s061will keep our minds “on things on this earth and not on our eternal destination. For it is “He that gives us the vision of Hope and the Passion to be like Him.”

Remember my friends we are God’s prodigy, He has “formed us from the dust of the ground, and created us in the likeness of His image” and one day we must all face our righteous Judge, who will  judged us on our faith as a student, and our performance and the choices each of us has made throughout our life.

Ecc. 1:14 (NIV) tells us “I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.” So for each of us who have decided to finish this race we must remember, “we are running to obtain that prize” from the Masters which is eternal life.

urlToday, I would like each of you to focus on God’s purpose for His body of believers as it relates to each of us and how both unite together in Holy matrimony for our salvation.

In addition my friends, only a passion from within to fulfill God’s purpose in our lives fits into God’s overall vision, along with our faith and endurance as we follow Christ to the cross and finally to His pure and holy kingdom.

First Christ establishes His Church, Matt.6:18 (KJV) tells us “…. and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Christ being the Rock for in 1 Cor. 10:4 (KJV) it tells us “and all drank the same spiritual drink.

For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.” So Christ Himself will establish His body of solid-rockbelievers, and neither principalities or powers can prevail against it because it was established to last throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity.

Consistent with this, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, But a body you have prepared for Me.” God’s original purpose for Adam and Eve after there fall, and then Israel and now His chosen generation, was to reflect Christ image to a world and to the principalities and powers in heavenly places” both good and evil.

And like Job, our character “for such a time as this” should be one that God can say “Have you considered [my chosen of the 21st century], that there is none like them on the earth, a blameless and upright generation, one who fears God and shuns evil?” Job 1:8 (NKJV)

They have established my law of love, and this was the purpose of the cross, to unify a never ending love between the Father, Son, polls_10_commandments_1409_707653_poll_xlargeSpirit and all who has a passion to be “crucified with Christ and who has died to self and  has allowed Christ to live in them.”

And this my friends is God’s eternal purpose for all who believe in His transforming power. We must also remember, the controversy between good and evil ended at the cross when Christ said it is finished. Oh what a demonstration of love.

God sending His only Son to bear the penalty of man’s mistakes, an eternal spotless Being, uniting with mankind and taking upon himself the sins of the world, nailing them to the cross, where his blood washes away the penalty which was death and given life to everyone who believes.

And as His believers and God unite, Christ becomes our mediator and substitute. Oh the mercy and grace of god’s eternal purpose for all of his believers regardless of race, creed, color and social background, for we are all one body in Christ.

Remember, each of us who make up God’s church has been commissioned by God, to be a navigator for the reconciliation of Eden to a world that was lost in sin.

Ephesians 1:9-10 (KJV) tells us he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposedspiritofgrace in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.”

What a privilege as God’s chosen, we are a part of the unity of god’s eternal purpose for His church and as we look at our world and all that is happening in the Middle East and throughout the world we do not have time to finish watching Empire, Scandal, or dancing with the stars, or to waste God’s precious time in any capacity.

My friends, Christ Calls today, He needs workers to finish His mandate and I pray we all take up the mantle as grace still abounds, as we finish our course set before us on our way to the promise land.

Promises-Of-God“The Lord will always deliver us from all evil and will bring each of us into his heavenly Kingdom. To God be the glory” My friends “Satan well knows that all whom he can lead to neglect prayer and the searching of the Scriptures, will be overcome by his attacks.

Therefore he invents every possible device to engross the mind. But neither wicked men nor devils can hinder the work of God, or shut out His presence from His people, if they will, with subdued, contrite hearts, confess and put away their sins, and in faith claim His promises.”(E.G. White The Great Controversy)

My friends, that seems like such an easy solution to salvation and that is to claim by, or as by virtue of, our rights which are God’s promises.

“And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable [us] to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.” 2 Peter 1:4 (NKJV)

“Standing on the promises that cannot fail, when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail, By the living Word of God we shallimages prevail, Standing on the promises of God.” My friends God has made His promises available through His word if we will believe.

In addition, God’s promises are a declaration that something will be done Because He says it. Remember, God is “not human, that He should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. [He does not] speak and then not act? [He Does not] promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19 (NIV)

But my friends we have to know what is in God’s word and how each promise relates personally to each of our situations. “Train up a child in the Lord, and when they are old, will not depart from your teachings,” relates basically too someone with children.

imagesAnd then there are promises for all, no matter what the situation, “….for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deu. 31:6 (NIV) Another promise for His faithful says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jer. 29:11 (NIV)

“Standing on God’s promises, we now can see Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me; Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free, Standing on the promises of God.” Oh the precious blood of Jesus christ and the promises of it’s cleansing power.

“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:7-9 (ESV)

In addition, as we follow the word of God we should understand that Satan’s motives are only to keep us blinded with what this 6082_pSQHZk3vworld which is bound for perdition deems is right and acceptable.

2 Corinthians 4:4 tells us “whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

Well today we have a choice to be blinded by Satan and the things of this world or we can focus all of our attention on things above and God’s word and finish our course and continue to hold on to our faith as we endure and await our crown of righteousness, “which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give each of us at that day and not to us only, but unto [everyone] that love his appearing.” 2 Tim 4:7-8 (KJV)

16e263ce45673c650f9dbf62b4deb139Today, let’s go to a place that many have attempted but few have succeeded, a place that may take a moment for some, or a lifetime for others, a place, if we seek God’s kingdom must all get too, for it is a requirement for entry into the promise land.

And that place my friends, is in the very presence of God and the heavenly host and all the angels singing holy, holy, holy oh God almighty! and as you develop through your faith and endurance this passion, I need you to also develop this same passion for the journey ahead.

Remember, it is God who will choose those who are “safe to save,” it is God who will look at the entire journey and determined that our faith was that of a mustard seed, able to say unto any mountain, “Move from here to there,’ and it will move; [because] nothing was impossible [for God’s faithful on this journey]” Matt 17:20 (NKJV)

In addition, all who have been willing participants in the controversy between good and evil. My friends our battle scares that we acquire prodigal-son-todaythroughout our lives must produce a passion for the battle, along with a feeling, and a determination which can only be defined by our actions to serve a risen Savior.

A passion to serve Christ in the good times and the bad, when the sun is shining bright or when it can scarcely be seen over the horizon. Paul tells us in Gal. 5:24 (NASB) “Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

Paul, in that text is speaking of another type of passion that we crave through the influence of the god of this world, and with that type of passion our mind is not focused on the things above, but on the things that are on this earth.

imgres2So until we desire the passion of God’s spirit to transform our lives as we die to self each day, we will continue to live with the passion that only leads to perdition. “I do not understand my own actions. for I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate…

For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do…..” Romans 7:15-20 (KJV) My friends doesn’t that text give us some indication of the battle we face on this Journey.

Paul “fought the good fight, [he did] finished the race, [he did keep] the faith. [and now] Finally, there is laid up for [him] the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to [him] on that Day, and not to [him] only but also to all who have loved His appearing. 2 Tim 4:7-8 (NKJV)

My friends we must have a passion like Paul for this fight to the finish line and “His appearing” So our goal today must be to die images9to the passion that Satan offers, and too be alive in the passion of God’s presence a process that we can’t obtain overnight but a process of continuous faith, endurance, and the study of God’s word.

The world is deteriorating before our very eyes. The battle is now over our Character, but only you can decide the outcome for your soul, because the war is won, Christ will soon come to take those with the passion to serve and to carry our cross on this journey to the promise land.

So “choose you this day whom you will have a passion for; whether the gods in whose land ye now dwell that one day will be destroyed:” or will you have the passion for the true God that stretches beyond the boundaries of human intelligence all the way to His kingdom, and will continue throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity!!

isa43-1called-you-by-nme-you-are-mineBut now the Lord who created you, O Israel, says: Don’t be afraid, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you.

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you.” Isaiah 43:1-2 NKJV)

It was almost 1:00 in the morning when the phone rang. Dr. Leo Winters, the highly acclaimed Chicago surgeon, was abruptly awakened. There had been an accident and his skill hands were needed for immediate surgery.

The quickest route happened to be through a rather tough area, but with time being a critical factor, it was worth the risk. At one of the stoplights his door was yanked open by a man with a gray hat and a dirty flannel shirt.

“I got to have your car!” the man screamed, pulling him from his seat. Winters tried to explain the gravity of the situation but theimgres5 man would not listen. When the doctor was finally able to get a taxi to the hospital over an hour had elapsed and it was to late as the patient had passed away 30 minutes earlier.

The nurse told him that the father of the victim had gone to the chapel wondering why the doctor never came. Dr. Winters walked hurriedly to get to the chapel and when he entered he saw the father wearing a gray hat and dirty flannel shirt. (J. Utley)

Tragically the man in the gray hat, and dirty flannel shirt, had terminated the one chance he had in saving his son’s life. My friends How, many times, in our life do we terminate or eliminate the saving grace of our Savior from our lives.

09a58580He knocks daily, “Here I am! Please respond, for I Am the only way, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which you can be saved” Acts 4:12 (NKJV)

My friends, If you hear God’s voice please open the door to your heart and allow His Spirit to come in and make a complete transformation, for God’s love, grace and  mercy is still sufficient to sustain us until we cross over into the promise land.

Please don’t terminate your relationship with Christ because your schedules, and time does not fit within Christ spiritual agenda. “The steps of a good man [and woman] are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.

Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand. Ps 37:23-24 (NKJV) So that text tells me, Christ has ordered our steps and has set an agenda that will get us to the promise land if we will only respond to His knocking.

Jer. 29:11 (NIV) tells us For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, images10plans to give you hope and a future.” Remember This is the great I Am who created the heavens and earth in 7 Days.

In addition, He “created man and woman in His own image;” That is why we should “Trust in the Lord with [a passion of hope], and lean not on our own understanding” but give it all to the Master as we acknowledge the presence of God in our lives, by letting our faith and endurance dictate our journey.

So my friends, today with heartfelt prayer and supplications let’s make it all about our redeemer and as we take up our cross, with passion cry out “All to Jesus I surrender; Humbly at His feet I bow, Worldly pleasures all forsaken; take me, Jesus, take me now” as you create in me a clean and pure heart, one that will shield us against all “principalities, and powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world” and prepares me to cross over into the promise land and life eternal.


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

your-missionIt’s so amazing!! We live in a world that was created in seven days, a world where seas part and millions traveled across on dry ground, a world where one man is able to kill a thousand men with the jawbone of an ass, a world where a teenager kills a giant with a slingshot and a stone.

But, the most awesome and miraculous story ever told, is the one about a king who rules this universe we live in. Who reincarnates His Son into a woman’s body. The kings son is then born in a manger where cattle are fed.

He also lives a sinless life for 33 years and doing this time He performs many miracles as He proclaims the good news of the gospel to His ancestry, the Jews, who then kills Him by Crucifixion on a hill called Calvary and then after three days He raises Himself from the grave.

In addition, He does all of this so that mankind will receive Salvation, if we believe this awe inspiring story, and ifjesus_manger-300x213 we believe, one day soon we will go to live with him in a faraway place in the sky called heaven.

A Place “eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man or woman, the things prepared for us” a place where sin will no longer exist. My friends, I just repeated to you, the good news of the gospel, but it is not for the saved Christian.

We are beneficiaries of it, my friends, your mission should you choose to accept it, is to tell this story to a generation lost in sin, an adulterous, lying, stealing, gossiping, murdereous, covertness, greedy generation.

Yes my friends, this mission should you choose to accept it requires us to tell the world a story about a half man, half God that saves anyone if they give him their all, from the penalty of sin and death.

Matthew 12:39 (KJV) tells us “an evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign. But my friends it is not our responsibility to reform, restore, or convict, that is the responsibility of the Holy Spirit. It is only our responsibility to serve Christ wherever He sends as we let our lights so shine that others may see Christ in us as we spread the good news of Christ soon return.

smallgroupHistory tells us millions of martyrs died for the gospel of Christ that some are ashamed to proclaim. And most of them were not some skilled competent, proficient orator.

But the good news of the gospel was mostly proclaimed by the common, humble man or woman like you and I who experienced the transforming power of the holy Spirit in their lives and just wanted to proclaim this good news of what Christ had done, and was doing for them.

Oh what a wonderful message to proclaim to our friends, family, love one’s, neighbor, co-workers and the world as we tell how our not-ashamed-of-the-gospel-web_000loving Savior lifted us up, and brought each of us to Safety in His loving, caring and merciful arms.

Friends, if you are willing to give it all too the Master the Bible will speak for itself through Gods Spirit. But your mission should you choose to accept it is to just follow Christ lead and never be ashamed of the gospel that sent Him to Calvary.

Romans 5:5 (KJV) tells us “And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” Romans 10:11 (KJV) also tells us “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”

So today, if you love the Lord with all your Heart and soul, your mission should you choose to accept it, is to serve Him every day of your life, as you tell the world of His love, mercy and grace and what He has done for you.
