Week 42

 

Walk With Me LORD….

Well if you are filled with the HOLY SPIRIT, you not only walk with Him, but walk in Him, walk in the finished work that He has already done for you and I.  When He was on the cross before He gave up the Ghost, He said, “It Is Finished”. So now people of GOD, what does that mean for you and I?  Well Eph.2:8 says by Grace are ye saved through Faith, so the Faith I now have I’m walking in it….it was and is a gift from GOD.

So this gift called GRACE: GOD’s Riches At CHRIST Expense

Empowers us to be kind, empowers us to know and to believe we are already sitting in a Heavenly place.  Whenever trouble tries to rock you, you aught to rock it…. The ROCK your standing on is a solid rock, the chief corner stone.

I know when we read about Grace, we read Grace is precious, forgiving and kind. But Grace also had mercy and delivered you and I. Yes, Grace is an empowerment and Grace got you and Grace saved you, but now let Grace lead you.

For My Grace is sufficient for thee…

Week 41

The Author and Finisher of My Life

For without Faith, it is impossible to please GOD. When we please GOD, it won’t make sense to mankind. When it comes to writing books, a person becomes an author only when the book is published. Don’t just speak it, but live it. If your work is unpublished, and even if the idea is purely your own, you will still be considered as the person who wrote about the work, these kinds of writers honor CHRIST with their lips, but their hearts are far from Him….a hearer of the WORD.  A writer is a person who writes a book, article or any literary piece, while an author is essentially the person who originated the idea, or content of the work being written. "Autobiography" - one who writes about who He is and what He has done. And  when your work is published, when Faith has been applied, you get to be known as the author of the work – a doer of the WORD,  You are known as a Believer, as a Christian, as the WORD, as CHRIST. As He is so are we. So, if you write a lot, but never get the book published and out to the public, you remain a writer like a disciple who doesn’t walk in the fulfilling of the WORD. An Author can get the work copyrighted under the copyright laws – meaning its signed, sealed, and delivered not by the law, but by the HOLY GHOST. This ensures that nobody else, satan, steals, kills or destroys, the original Faith as it is.  So only the Author, JESUS, is always associated with that particular Faith at work. 

The written Gospels, we should be in them, as they are in us, so we are seen as WORD Walking, Blood Cleansed, Tongue Talking, HOLY GHOST, Anointed Believers.

 

The Finisher – the one who brought the law to an end and gave us GRACE.......... the perfecter of our Faith, the Leader and Perfecter of The Faith, the faith which has been illustrated. – for the joy that was set before Him, He endured the cross. A worker performing the last operation – the 1st Adam gave it up but the 2nd Adam got it back, finished it, and has given us the keys to Eternal Life Living with Power and with Praise...

 

Hebrews 12:2

Matthew 15:8

 

Week 40

Praise Is What I Do

A Believer, is one inwardly, and the circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, and not in the letter whose Praise is not of men, but of GOD.

GOD Praises Himself, through us – the HOLY SPIRIT resides in us and testifies of JESUS CHRIST; the will of GOD is to believe in the one whom He has sent, to honor CHRIST is to honor GOD.

God created us spiritual beings first and then we took on this fleshly body and came into this world…. Our Spirit man longs to do the things of GOD, it’s the flesh that craves the things of this world.  And when we put this flesh under subjection (die to selfish ways), then our Spirit man follows after the HOLY SPIRIT and then all things are subject unto the Spirit, including our bodies.  This is how one truly glorifies GOD in our everyday living:

  • the way we speak – man shall not live by bread alone but by every WORD that proceeds out of the mouth GOD…
  • the way we think – think on those things that are above only, those things that are good, those things that are lovely, those things that are of good report….
  • things we do – old things are passed away, behold all things have become new…
  • places we go – follow after the Holy Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh….

So now I begin to worship the LORD thy GOD, and Him alone shall I serve.

So now my mouth is filled with thy Praise and with thy Honor all the day…

So now I can enter His gates with Thanksgiving and enter His courts with Praise…

So now I can Praise Him with my whole heart

so now I can Bless the LORD, oh my soul, and all that is within me, Bless His Holy name…

So now I can sing Praises unto the LORD, and expect His Anointing to pour down on me…

Let everything that have breath, Praise the LORD, Praise Ye the LORD!

 

 

Week 39

                           Believing is Seeing

the LORD asked Jeremiah, what seeth thou? And at that time if it be in a dream, if it be in a vision, or if it be in the natural, the LORD had to open his eyes for Jeremiah to see.

When we Believe in the WORD of GOD, when we Trust in the LORD with all our heart, when we are Obedient to His Will, and Listen to His HOLY SPIRIT, then will He hear from us and Heal our land, then will He hasten His WORD to perform it, then will He lead us and guide us into all Truth…..

And through all of this the LORD says, be not afraid, for I have put My WORD in thy mouth; and since the LORD has put His WORD in our mouth, and out of the abundance of the heart , the mouth speaketh, for He hath put His laws into our hearts and in our minds. Knowing this, for I AM with thee to Deliver thee; for with Love and Kindness have I drawn thee and behold the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, and He will not only dwell with thee, but He shall be in thee.

 

The LORD has not given us the spirit of fear, but of Power, of Love, and of a Sound Mind:

Of Power – because the HOLY SPIRIT gives us the Power and Authority to declare and decree things

  •   to call those things that be not as though they were
  •   to bind and rebuke all evil
  •   to tread upon serpents and scorpions
  •   to cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself             against the knowledge of GOD
  •  to pull down strongholds
  • to revenge all disobedience when our Obedience is to CHRIST JESUS and our Obedience is fulfilled by the HOLY SPIRIT.

Of Love – because LOVE covers a multitude of sin

Of a Sound Mind – because we cannot stay conformed to this world, but of CHRIST by the HOLY SPIRIT we can be transformed by the renewing of our mind that we may prove what is that Good and Acceptable and Perfect Will of GOD.   

 

When we Believe and Trust in His WORD, then we shall see the Glory of GOD...

Week 38

The Seal...

JESUS said, I’m going to prepare a place for you, but I won’t leave you comfortless… I will ask the Father to send the Comforter, which is the

HOLY SPIRIT. He is the one that seals this covenant…and when He is in you, greater things shall ye do…

The Seal: Grace and Mercy bought in the Blood of 1 Redeemer, 1 Saviour, 1 Way which is the Truth and the Life… JESUS was wounded for transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we were healed. When we confess with our mouth the LORD JESUS CHRIST and believe in our hearts, we receive the HOLY SPIRIT, and He then leads us and guides us into all Truth. We are saved, sanctified, and set apart, living after the SPIRIT of GOD, and not after carnal ways, until we are called to go Home to Glory.

This seal dwells on the inside of us and causes us to rest in the finished work… The seal of GOD is from the crown of our head to the sole of our feet, the fulfilling of the HOPLY SPIRIT... when we abide in Him, we walk as He walked. Don’t be discouraged when others persecute you and despitefully use you…. rebuke the enemy that’s using the individual and pray the prayer of deliverance for that individual’s soul…

The mark of the beast will be manifested outwardly and not dwelling in the heart with a renewed mind.

 

 

Week 37

I Am The Resurrection

Many of us believe the last day will actually be when JESUS comes, and we will be caught up in the air to meet him…. Yes, those that are in CHRIST JESUS… however we don’t have to wait ‘till the last day to be with JESUS; right here, right now, in this present time, one can be with JESUS. We all were born into sin and shapen into iniquity and needed a savior to redeem us from this sinful nature that is hell bound.

In the Old Testament, they used animals to cover their sins one time per year, they also used animals to do, or represent other traditional things such as, ground hog to represent spring time and a rabbit to represent “easter”, and we are taught these things, generation after generation. But CHRIST JESUS has come to take away the sins of the world, that whosoever believes in him, will not perish but have eternal life. And this eternal life that we now live, we live according to the redeemed wage for sin.  We don’t have to run and hunt down animals…. Spring will come even if a ground hog sees himself or not, “easter” is a pagan term that uses a rabbit instead of celebrating the True Life Giver JESUS CHRIST.  Why wouldn’t we want to celebrate the Hope of Glory, isn’t the Joy of the LORD our Strength, our Redeemer, our Way Maker, our mountain-Mover, our Peace in the midst of a storm. We were once dead in sin and now He has reconciled us back to the Almighty GOD.

When JESUS called Lazarus forth, He spoke the WORD with Power and Authority of the Holy Spirit. He told Martha and Mary, I Am the Resurrection and the Life, if you only just believe.

When we repent, confess with our mouth and believe in our hearts that JESUS is the Risen Saviour, GOD the Father, GOD the Son, GOD the Holy Spirit shall dwell in you and lead you and guide you into all Truth.  

No more once per year, but He who knew no sin, became sin for us, once and for all and we now have Resurrected Eternal life and this life that I now live, yet not I, but CHRIST that dwelleth in me.

Remember: GOD is a Spirit, and they that worship Him, must worhsip Him in Spirit and in Truth; this can only be done by believeing in JESUS CHRIST and having the Holy Spirit.

Week 36

I died…

For ye are dead, and your life is hid in CHRIST JESUS.

I am crucified with CHRIST, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the Fatih of the Son of GOD,

who loved me and gave himself for me.

If anyone will come after me, let them deny themself, and take up their cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save their own life shall lose it; but whosoever will lose their life for JESUS CHRIST, the same shall save it.  For what advantage does a person have if they gain the whole world, and in the end, be cast into hell. ‘Oh yeah, there is a way that seems right according to this worlds system but it isn’t righteous, and the end therefore is destruction.  JESUS knew no sin, but yet took sin upon Himself, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness and by His stripes we were healed.

So now, we can present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto GOD, which is our reasonable service.  This is possible because anyone that be in CHRIST, him/herself is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  And all things are of GOD, who hath reconciled us to Himself by JESUS CHRIST and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation; that GOD was in CHRIST, reconciling us unto himself, not imputing our trespasses against us, but has committed unto us the WORD of reconciliation.

And we are now made the Righteousness of GOD

Week 35

 

Be not overcome by evil, but Overcome evil with GOOD...

 

Do not conform to this world’s way of doing things, or handling situations.

But be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind;  the Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak; in the sense of wanting to hurt someone because they hurt you.  So your desire has now dropped down, beneath your true characteristic, to doing the same thing they have done to you(causing hurt, pain, confusion, division, bitterness, hatred, unforgiveness, etc.) …. But if you say, “I don’t like what they did to me”, then why would you want to operate in the very thing you dislike???

For the good that I would, I do not; but the evil that I would not do, that, I find myself doing.  Now if I do, that which I know not to do, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me….

Who shall deliver me from this sin?

I thank GOD through JESUS CHRIST our LORD. So then with the mind I myself serve GOD; but with the flesh the law of sin….

Week  34

LORD, Teach Us How To Pray

 

When the Disciple asked JESUS, LORD teach us how to pray….(Luke 11:1)

The LORD gave them instructions during the time of CHRIST still fulfilling all things…(Luke24:44) and the HOLY SPIRIT had not come as yet. So even the prayer that JESUS taught them,  prophesied the way we receive thy Kingdom come, thy will be done; He gave instructions on how to apply the WORD of GOD in our everyday living; how the authority we have been given is used to have dominion over the earth and call those things that be not as though they were…(Rom.4:17); and to stand on the WORD of GOD by casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of GOD; bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of CHRIST; having a readiness to revenge all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled…(2Corin.10:5-6)

Most importantly, what things you desire, when you pray, Believe that you received them, and you shall have them. And when you stand praying, Forgive, if you have ought against anyone; that your Heavenly Father may forgive you. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Heavenly Father Forgive you.

And whatever you are seeking deliverance from, speak it, declare it, for all scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction for instruction in righteousness….(2Tim.3:16)

The Angels are standing by waiting to hear us speak GOD’s Word and carry out the Divine Purpose; by Faith do we Believe and the HOLY SPIRIT reveals to us the mystery of GOD which is the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST….(John16:13-14)

 

 

Week 33

I AM that I AM...

JESUS I know, Paul I know, but who are you…(Acts 19:15) this is what satan deceives us with when you don’t know who’s you are, who you are, and don’t understand the power that has been given you by the Holy Spirit.

So then they that are in the flesh cannot please GOD… But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of GOD dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of CHRIST, he is none of His…(Rom.8:9) But after Repentance, the Spirit Himself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the Children of GOD… we are heirs of GOD and joint-heirs with JESUS CHRIST and we are glorified with Him….(Rom.8:16-18) And when we received JESUS, we received power to become the Sons of GOD, even to those that believe on His name….(John 1:12) And this is what satan tries to deceive us with, doubt, unbelief, reasoning,  uncertainty, and because things don’t seem like  its working in our favor, then we agree with the devil and speak negative about our situation and ourselves.

But the Righteousenss of GOD which is by Faith of JESUS CHRIST unto all and upon all them that believe; being justified freely by His Grace through the redemption that is in CHRIST JESUS…(Rom.3:21-25)

JESUS knew no sin, but became sin for us that we might be made the Righteousness of GOD through CHRIST JESUS….(2Corin.5:21)  

After we confess with a repented heart, we can confess:

I Am a Child of GOD

By the Blood of JESUS

I Am the Righteousness of GOD

 

Week 32

You Do It...

Mark 6:37 - Ye give them something to eat

Mark 11:23 - Ye shall have whatsoever ye say

Matt.21:21 - Ye have Faith

Mark 5:36 - Ye Believe

John 11:40 - Ye shall see the Glory of GOD

 

Moreover. whom He did predestinate, them He also called; and whom He called, them He also justified; and whom He justified, them He also gloried....(Rom.8:28-31)

We have been empowered by the Holy Spirit to carry out the divine purpose of GOD.  

Not what we want , when we want, or how we want, not our will, but His will be done in our life..... And this life that we live, once you have been born again, is now lived unto CHRIST.

He gives us the WORD to speak, the Faith to Believe, Instructuions on how to handle situations and teaches us how to Love and Pray for one another. He also gave us dominion over the earth. Do we know who we are in CHRIST JESUS? 

When satan deceived and robbed us of our identity, JESUS paid the price for us to get dominion back again. Now that we have it, what are we doing with the Spiritual Anointing that we have Victory in? Do we live as Overcomers, or are we still allowing satan with his old tricks to rob us from recognizing who we are and proclaiming:

No weapon formed against us shall prosper...

We shall live and not die...

We have life and shall have it more abundantly...

We are above only and not beneath...

WE think on those things that are above only and not beneath...

We have been made the righteousness of GOD...

 

The Holy Spirit beareth witness with our spirit, that we re the Children of GOD!!!

nothing shall be able to seperate us from the love of GOD in CHRIST JESUS our LORD!!!

Romans 8:16, 8:34-39

 

 

Week 31

 

Faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the Power of GOD

 

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which GOD hath prepared for them that Love Him....But GOD hath revealed them unto us by His SPIRITfor the SPIRIT searcheth all things, yes, the deep things of GOD.... 

but the wisdom of this world cannot comprehend the things of GOD....

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world which is influenced by satan , but the Spirit of GOD, that we might know the things that are freely given to us of GOD..... 

It is known, you don't get anything for free........ but CHRIST paid the price for all, but only those who receive Him are made the righteousness of GOD..... but the natural man receiveth not the things of the SPIRIT of GOD, for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are Spiritually discerned.... for the things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the HOLY SPIRIT teacheth comaring Spiritual things with Spiritual.... (1Corin.2:4-14) 

 Again, the things of GOD knoweth no man, until he be filled and led by the HOLY SPIRIT.

(Gal.5:16)

 

Week 30

He Endured, so we could endure.....

Verily, verily I say unto you, that ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice; and ye shall be sorrowful, But Your sorrow Shall Be Turned Into JOY, Unspeakable JOY... A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come; but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for the joy that her child is born…

(John 16:20-21)(1 Pet.7-9)

 

When you are the Blessed and Beloved and you are standing for righteousness sake, you will be persecuted. But count it all joy, when you fall into divers teimptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.... Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the LORD hath promised to them that love Him...(James 1:2-3) (James 1:12)

 

We speak out of our own mouths, "this keeps happening to me" and "that keeps happening to me", and "everytime I turn around its always something".....NOT SO!!! 

According as His Divine Power, hath given unto us all things that pertain unto Life and Godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to Glory and Virtue....(2Pet.1:3)

 

 

 

Week 29

Miracles are Eternal, not temperal...

When JESUS fed the 5000, with the 5 barley loaves and 2 small fishes...(John6:9-10)

Can we learn to humble ourselves as the little boy who gave what he had? Can we learn to have faith to turn something of little value and make it into much gain? Could we want something so bad, that after we receive it, we greed for more instead of recognizing the true value in how we received?  GOD is a Wonder Working, Almighty GOD, but He is not a temporal fix,,,, He is Eternal, He is Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.  We are not to take Him lightely or seek Him only when we need something.  

Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.  Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which JESUS shall give unto you; for Him hath GOD the Father sealed....(John6:26-27)

Then they asked, what shall we do, that we might work the works of GOD? 

I answer this in this way, I can do all things through CHRIST JESUS, if I only just Believe in Him!

Even Peter said, ....thou hast the words of Eternal Life' and we Believe and are sure that thou art that CHRIST, the Son of the Living GOD....(John6:68-69)

So we are to Bless the LORD at all times....His Praise should continually be in our mouths...

out of the abundance of our hearts, our mouths should be speaking.... He gave us His Joy, His Peace, His Endurance, His Love, His Power, His Truth, His WORD, His HOLY SPIRIT!

 

 

 

Week 28

 

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways, my ways, saith the LORD.  For as the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts...(Is.55:8-9)

 

In this season, what would we think of Hosea the Prophet of GOD, for marrying a promiscuous woman, a harlot, or in street term, a whore...  

In this season, what would we think of Joseph, being thrown in a pit, sold in slavery, accused of rape, falsely imprisoned then was made 2nd in command over nations... 

In this season, what would we think of John the Baptist, who spoke out publically, saying prepare for the GOSPEL, the One who will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with Fire...and then he was beheaded....

 

It is written, if any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it, but whosoever will lose his life for My sake, the same shall save it.

Pride lifts you up, but then theres a hard fall.... but you find Life when you humble yourself...

the only way to touch the sky, is to let your knees hit the ground... give it all to JESUS, for He careth for you and the Holy Spirit will resurrect you, that you will receive double for all your trouble.

 

Week 27

 

 When any one heareth the WORD of the Kingdom of GOD, and understand it not, then comes the wicked one, and catch away that which was sown in his heart.  This is he which received seed by the way side.  But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and with joy receive it; Yet, he has no root in himself, but endures for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution comes because of the WORD, by and by he is offended.  He also that received seed among the thorns is he that hears the WORD; and the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the WORD, and he becomes unfruitful.

But he that received seed into the good ground is he that hears the WORD, and understands it, which also bears fruit, and spring forth some hundred, some sixty some thirty fold...

(Matt.13:18-23)

We are often moved by positive words, whether spiritual or natural, it speaks a volume of confidence.  While the positive, natural words may encourage you, the spiritual WORD of GOD not only drives you to increase, to multiply, to become more fruitful; but empowers you, to tear down those walls that block you, that hinder you, that torment and tempt you, that ultimately stop you.  For satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but JESUS CHRIST came that we might have Life and have it more abundantly. So when we tear down satans walls and spring up deep ditches, and uproot old dried things from the past that try to keep us weighed down, we can speak Life to dead things and bring forth other souls for the Kingdom of GOD. Satan has been defeated already, but he thinks he can get back at GOD by attacking and deceiving the Children of GOD.  So GOD has empowered us through His Son JESUS that we may continue on this path of righteousness with the Holy Spirit testifying and bearing witness through us. The cares of this world is only to distract us from doing the will of GOD and speaking the Truth of the GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST.

 

 

Week 26

                                                          If   I  Was  Alive....

It’s over now , there’s no more purpose for my lungs cause I’m not breathing….

If I thought that was still alive,     then I was only dreaming…

I just left the earth, my soul has escaped my body now,       I’m dead and I’m rising into

heaven to find out what lies ahead

This life is over, and my time here is done on earth,        there’s no more stressin’,

I’m about to meet the one that gave me all my life and blessings…

Now its time to hear His voice and its time to feel his embrace

and its that time to meet my God and its time to see his face…

I’m at the gate and I don’t wanna’ wait,        I wanna see my Saviour

Imma’ feel his presence, and bathe in his favor…

Wait,          they opened up the gates,        and sunlight dances through the entrance

If I was alive,     I’d pass-out from the beauty of his presence…

I can sense him all around me     I can feel him every place,

He’s here,      I feel Him,      but that’s not enough,     I wanna’ see his face.

So they close the gate,       as I walked in,      now any memories are useless

And  earthly things are worthless,  cause no other can produce this…

So much color,     so much life,       and wind,      and sun,     and love,      and music

So much happiness,       GOD loves us       and this paradise proves it….

Uuhh,      wheres He at though,        I just wanna’ see His face,   I’m all around it    and I’m walkin’ on the streets of gold, but I ain’t get my crown yet…

Wait,        I feel something,      I turn around,        my eyes meet with His, I never seen Him before but I still know who it is,       right now I’m face to face with JESUS,        lookin’ GOD right in the eyes immediately I bow, and if I was alive, I would’ve cried…

Now GOD was always right beside me, but now I see him,     I can touch Him,     I’ll exhault Him,     Imma’ praise him,     I’ll magnify Him,      because I love Him,       and I tell Him your my King,     And I know He gives double,        for He is a present help in times of trouble

and I love you,     GOD I love you,      for eternity I’ll show you,

But He looks me in the eye and He whispers,   do I know you???

Uuhh, do you know me,    Yeah you made me,    I was in church every service!!!

But He tells me,   church….without applying what you learned….is worthless……

But I was a choir member,       I praised you with poems and acting,   but He said,

He check the book of life and my name was absent,   and then I’m laughin’  like there must be a mistake,      I just won’t hear it,   I can’t bear it,  and then He said, I praised him but I didn’t have Him in my spirit…

Lord I thought I gave you praise wholeheartedly, but he turns his head away and said, depart from me.........              I start to scream, but it’s too late, immediately I feel the flame, and I’m ashamed, it’s me to blame............         I could have stopped all of this pain, life ended like this for me, this ain’t how I want it to concluda’

But that’s why in real life it won’t be, so don’t let this be your futura’,

you may go to church but saints you gotta’ live it, don’t be 2-faced, don’t be hypocrites, guys don’t be dogs and ladies don’t be loose legs, we ain’t got no time, so right now drop the gangs and lift your hands and before it ends, surrender all to Him and praise Him while we have the chance.

 

 

Week 25

 

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work that ye my be perfect and entire wanting nothing... (James 1:3-5)

Paraphrasing Joseph's experience:

Joseph was thrown in a pit, sold in slavery, wrongfully accused, unjustly imprisoned… but satan is the culprit behind all of this especially when we don't know who we and who's we are. Entrapment of the mind(mind battles), when we see whats happening naturally, when we should be focused spiritually.

But Joseph didn’t allow his temporary circumstance to become a terminal condition:

·        Why am I going through all this stuff

·        I’m I not good enough/ I don’t have or make enough

·        My family doesn’t want me

·        I’ve been thrown in a pit

·        I was sold in slavery

·        I was wrongfully accused

·        I’ve been locked up

·        I don’t have any friends and the list goes on

 

All these excuses we make into traditions of what society calls the norm(poverty, lack, insecurity).  satan uses these bad situations to compound us and blinds us from truth; so whether someone else is to blame or not, we still place the guilt on others because that is just so easy to do; there are those who place so much guilt on themselves and then excuses turn into suicide – spiritual wickedness, deception that became a trap.  Instead, Joseph transformed his pain into plentiful. He trusted in GOD and he stood on the promise GOD gave to him.  Joseph had the gift of administration and used the wisdom of GOD:

·        Used brotherly love to minister to others in his darkest times,

·        became trustworthy enough to be 2nd in command and ruling over nations

·        saved Egypt from starvation

·        saved his very own family that threw him away

what the devil meant for bad, GOD turned it around for good; Joseph’s life was filled with what seemed to be setbacks on the surface, but spiritually, were the very situations that matured him, tested him and ultimately set him up for GOD’s plan to be manifested through him.   

For these present afflictions, are not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed in us… (Rom.8:18, 2corin.4:16-18)

Today, we have GOD here on earth, who is the HOLY SPIRIT. He is here to testify of JESUS CHRIST and we are to bear witness also. We are empowered by the HOLY SPIRIT, him dwelling on the inside of us; so we can speak, for the words He gives us is the WORD of GOD and it shall not return void unto us.  So whether it be 7 years of affliction or the fire turned up 7 times hotter (3 Hebrew boys), speak the WORD over your life, your spouse, your children, your finances, your friends; stand knowing, trusting and believing GOD is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we could every ask or think.

Knowing that the trying of your faith, then work the WORD…

 

 

 

Week 24

                                                                        FAMILY...

Behold my mother and my brother.... is whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in Heaven the same is my brother, my sister and my mother... (Matt.12:50)

Yes we all have been born into a natural family and that which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit...(John3:6) Our earthly family  teaches us the ways of the world and these seemeth right like education, cooking, cleaning, marriage, houses, land, cars, businesses, oh' and don't forget bills and taxes... and yes we are to obey the laws of the land.  But in all of this is trials, tribulations, tests, but our LORD and Saviour has overcome this world. 

satan showed JESUS all the kingdoms of the world and said I will give you all these things if you fall down and worship me...

1st - thou shall worship the LORD thy GOD and Him only shall thou serve(Matt.4:8-10)

2nd - the earth is the LORD's and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein... (Ps.24:1) 

so satan can't offer CHRIST or us who are in CHRIST JESUS, satan can't offer what already belongs to us... and we must operate according to Gospel principles. 

If we understand the importance of our spiritual family, they are all those who will spend eternity in Heaven not hell.  Those who love GOD and are called according to His purpose; them that believe that JESUS CHRIST is the Son of the Living GOD; them that believe and are filled by the HOLY SPIRIT; them that repent and turn away from sin and live according to the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST...

So our family should be the example of :

GOD, then JESUS, then the Church...

so then we aught to be:

JESUS, then Husbands, then Wife, then children, etc.,... (Eph.5:20-28)

As for me and my house we will serve the LORD... where all are saved and sanctified... ALL MUST BELIEVE!

 

 

 

Week 23

Let’s be friends…

Behold how good and how pleasant it is for us to dwell together in UNITY…(Psa.133:1)

To gather together for one purpose, a divine purpose, Faith in JESUS CHRIST. When we come together as one, whether one is up-side-down or right-side-up, in or out, backward or forward, wealthy or poverty, healthy or lack thereof; we should only look down if we’re bending to pick one another up.  We can bear one another’s burdens (Gal.6:2) how, by the one who is more spiritual go and restore such one in meekness.(Gal.6:1) applying the WORD of GOD in every trial and tribulation, every circumstance and situation. We ourselves never want to be alone; friends show themselves friendly. JESUS CHRIST, Our LORD & Saviour  did not consider us servants; servants do not know the works and plans of their LORD, instead He calls us friends and makes all things known unto us.

Consider this; out of all the 613(+-) commandments, CHRIST fulfilled the law and gave us a commandment to love one another. That’s it, just love one another. And He gave us the greatest gift to love each other with, the HOLY SPIRIT. And with the HOLY SPIRIT we have

Peace,                     Joy,                    Kindness, 

Goodness,              Meekness,          Patience, 

Temperance,          Forgiveness,      Longsuffering, etc.,

and when 2 or 3 are gathered together in JESUS name, there He is in the midst of them. So when iron sharpens iron, how much more the Glory of GOD shines through us.

Consider this, in marriage there is relationship because they can relate to the same thing,  there is also fellowship because they have to be around one another to get along, but friendship is how they respect, love, and trust one another. How much more when they have CHRIST in the midst….an attacker may defeat one who is alone, and two can resist him; but a three-strand cord is not easily broken(Eccl.4:9-12)

Grace was given to us by JESUS, we aught to give Grace to one another.

 

 

 

Week 22

 

Give & receive

Now unto us, was first given dominion over the earth, but we relinquished that authority

To the enemy…(Gen.1:28) , (Gen.3)

If we be real with ourselves, our desire’s actions are,

“we want what we want”, “when we want it” and “whatever it takes to get it”.  And most often, our desires do not line up with the will of GOD; what we do want is for the will of GOD to line up with our desires - Not so!

When we are not in compliance with the WORD of GOD, we find ourselves in disobedience to GOD and displacement of His will.    When Adam and Eve disobeyed GOD and realized they were naked; then they tried to fix it according to their thoughts and feelings(carnality), by sewing fig leaves together as aprons; that wasn’t enough, so they decided to hide from GOD.

GOD, the Omniscient One, called out to Adam, where art thou?

Adam’s response was:

                          I heard your voice,​     I was afraid,    I was naked,    I hid myself…

I’s  - sin is selfish, concern of me, myself, and I.

Sin disguises itself so you can think

  its “pleasurable”, its “fun”, “there’s nothing wrong with that”, “everybody else is doing it”!  and satan has you agreeing with everything he’s tempting you with;

bad doctor’s reports, I don’t have any money, my kids don’t listen, my spouse ---, my job---, etc,.

         So then disobedience, displacement, fear, exposure, has you hiding or running from people, ultimately GOD, because you made a mistake, because you got yourself in a predicament, because things are not going the way you expected and definitely not fast enough for you.

 

God said, who told you, you were naked? The question is, who have you been listening to???

Who/What has persuaded/beguiled you to:

                 get out of the will of GOD?           go a different direction?  

                choose another?                             take what does not belong to you?

What can separate you from the Love of GOD? (Rom.8:37-39)

 

Then the blame game, when no one wants to take responsibility for the part they played in it all...(Gen.3:12-13) until finally we get to the real culprit, the offender satan.

 

So GOD makes a way when it seems like there is no way and He took Adam and Eve out of the garden and clothed them. Generations ahead GOD gave His only begotten Son JESUS CHRIST(John3:16) as a propitiation(Rom.3:22-26) for our sins and we were made the Righteousness of GOD(2Corin.5:21); putting us back in right standing with GOD, if you confess with your mouth, believe in your heart the LORD JESUS CHRIST(Rom.10:8-10) and receive the HOLY SPIRIT, then you shall walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh…(Gal.:13-26). 

WHAT  GOD HAS FOR YOU IS FOR YOU;

for He is Sovereign and Omnipotent, He knows what’s best for you.

 

 

Week 21

Cliché or TRUE WORD for Life

I’m glad for the healing but give me the

Healer.

I appreciate the giving but give me the

Giver.

It’s so good to be comforted but give me the Comforter.

I’m grateful for the provision but give me the Provider.

I know that He keeps me but give me, Him, the

Keeper.

It is written, we can speak, “Peace Be Still” to a storm, but I need JESUS the Peacemaker.

I know I need to study the written Word, but to understand it,

I need the Living WORD.

Let the Redeemed of the LORD say so, so give me the Redeemer.

I want to be saved, so give me

JESUS the Saviour…

-------------------

Week 20

 

GOD can’t use me ‘cause I’m too broken…

 

Have you ever thought, “GOD can’t use me:

  • Oh man’ I’ve done some things…
  • I’m too hurt…
  • They said, “I’m not good enough”
  • They said, “I’ll never change”
  • I got a lot goin’ on…
  • I will never be forgiven… or I just can’t forgive them…
  • I don’t know how to let go…
  • I’m so far out, I can’t turn back…
  • I’ll go to church when I get right…
  • There’s no hope for me…
  • Oh man’ satan ain’t got nottin’ on me… or I put the “H” in hell…
  • I’m strung out…
  • I don’t trust anybody… or Ain’t nobody gonna’ take advantage of me…

Of course, at some point in life, we all have thought, said, and felt this way about ourselves or someone else...  But JESUS was wounded for our transgressions, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes, we were healed.

Is.5:4-10 Those of a fearful heart, be strong and fear not;

  • the captive shall be set free – spiritually we are imprisoned in our minds and tormented all the day long with mind battles; be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind
  • the blind, see; to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in CHRIST JESUS.
  • the deaf, hear; So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God
  • the lame, walk; carnally we have received degenerative disorders, a disfunction, as a normal way of life, and need to deal with sickness spiritually by walking in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Gal.5:14-26

  • the speech impaired, talk; do not speak the wisdom that man teacheth, but speak that, which the HOLY GHOST teacheth (1Corin.2:12-14)

GOD is not a man that He should lie, nor the son of man that He should repent…. Who’s report are you going to believe; what others say about you, or what GOD says about you!!!

The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. (Ps.34:18-19)

 

 

Week 19

Be Ye RECONCILED.....

 

...this is who you are now, right standing, made the righteousness of GOD in CHRIST JESUS

 not what you used to be, not waiting til' tomorrow or until JESUS actually comes back.

Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand - the HOLY SPIRIT, He is GOD here on Earth.

And JESUS will baptize you with the HOLY SPIRIT and with Fire.

Therefore if “any man” – human being that is:

  •  male, female
  • shape, size
  • “have a lot of” or “just making do”
  • Gentile, Greek, or the very Jew,

“IF” they be in CHRIST, he is a new creature:

  • Sins forgiven
  • Saved by GRACE
  • Born Again
  • JESUS took our place – He was wounded for our transgressions,

                                                  He was bruised for our iniquities,

                                                  the chastisement of our peace was upon Him

                                                  with His stripes we are healed, the BLOOD of JESUS

old things are passed away –

  • old habits, old tricks of the trade
  • what i think and how i feel

behold all things have become new – 

  • not by might, nor by power,
  • but by My SPIRIT says the LORD of Hosts
  • not living by "new years resolution", but by His Revelation

Be ye RECONCILED….. The “Be” attitude:

  • Blessed are the poor in spirit...
  • Blessed are the meek...
  • Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness...
  • Blessed are the merciful...
  • Blessed are the pure in heart...
  • Blessed are the peacemakers...
  • Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake...

​You are the Blessed, to be a Blessing!

...seek ye first the Kingdom of GOD and His righteousness and all these things(possessions), shall be added unto you; your not blessed because of things, things are attracted to the Blessing, YOU!  

Scripture reading:Matt.5:3-14, Deut.28:1-14, Matt.3:2, 4:17, Mark 1:15, 2Corin.5:17-21, Gal.3:26-29, Rom.10:8-13, Matt.6:33

 

 

Week 18

 

For by GRACE are we saved through Faith and not of ourselves, it is a Gift of GOD.  (Eph.2:11-22)

And the plans that GOD has for us are good and not of evil; that we are partakers of His Promise in CHRIST by the Gospel. 

In having this wonderful Gift and being made the Righteousness of GOD, offense will come (Matt.18:7) but woe to that one by whom the offence cometh. satan uses plots, plans, distractions, lack, disorder, sickness and all kinds of tricks to oppress, possess and depress us, but GOD will make even your enemies your footstool; they become subject unto you. When GOD is for you, He is more than the whole world against you..

GOD will even make ways of escape, by a ram in the bush, and even with the very same temptation.. But do you speak the WORD that you Believe???

Consider Spiritual Warfare: The average Christian today, puts more focus on what their going through, rather than, focus on what GOD called them to do. We all have a divine purpose which is not to fulfill the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life; Men and Women of GOD, flee these things and follow after Righteousness, Godliness, Fatih, Love, Patience, Meekness and Fight the Good fight of Faith, lay hold on Eternal Life in which you were called and having the Power to declare and decree, bind and rebuke. Knowing this, as it is in Heaven so shall it be here on earth.(1 Tim.6:11-15)(Matt.6:10)

Week 17

Spiritual Scale

Oh' how the greatest gift of all weighs so lightly!

How unbalanced are we? For JESUS said, Come unto me , all ye that  labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.  Believers, we believe in the Son of GOD, that He nailed our sins to the cross, He rose on the 3rd day, and now is sitting  at the right hand of Abba Father making intercession for us. The same Anointing of the HOLY SPIRIT that was in JESUS, has come to testify that JESUS is LORD and SAVIOUR of the world and we also bare witness of the same belief. So when we are burdened down, which really tips the scale over, and heavy ladened with the cares of this world we loose focus, and cry out  in a spirit of pity  and woe is me, instead of allowing the HOLY SPIRIT to use us by His Authority and Power and speak to the circumstances, the situations, the pain, the hurt, the disappointment, the mountains, the storms that so easily beset us; its like we're so easy to be tossed to and fro, up and down like a rollercoaster. Yes, the LORD knows what we have need of, for these things are earthly, but if you allow your mind to be renewed, and lay aside every weight and take upon yourself His yoke, when satan tries to form his weapons, (and he uses earthly things to distract us), but our weapons of this warfare are not carnal, but is mighty in the pulling down of strongholds. Then the spiritual beings that the HOLY SPIRIT has made us to be the righteousness of GOD, then we are able to speak to the mountain, cast it down, it shall be done. Yes there are things we will go through, to be strengthened and to strengthen others, but the race that we endure, count it all joy becuase we are able to abound even when we are abased. If CHRIST BE LIFTED UP, HE WILL DRAW US TO HIM - Oh' how the Greatest Gift weighs so lightly!

Scripture reading: Matt.11:28-30 , John 12:28-32 , Heb.12:1-3

 

 

Week 16

 

Prayer & Worship Brings Breakthrough…

Prayer is a conversation with GOD…. Just as you have a conversation with your spouse,

your child, your co-worker, but in much respect, as a Father or Friend. JESUS is known as our BIG BROTHER, and the HOLY SPIRIT as our Comforter, Teacher, Keeper, and our Guide into all Truth. The WORD of GOD is also our way of Worship; singing songs is an extension of worship, but True Worship is how we apply the WORD to our everyday living. Everything you do and say, is it unto the Glory of GOD??? We tend to take GOD out of the equation and place Him in when its convenient. But GOD is our source for living, the HOLY SPIRIT is the air we breathe and have our being; the Power and Authority in which we speak and our steps are ordered by the LORD.

It is in the name of JESUS, we are able to Stand(Acts 4:10). Religion does not carry Truth, for it is apart of the law, and not of GRACE. Religion is neither tolerated in the Kingdom of Heaven – we declare and decree that JESUS CHRIST is LORD. There is no other name that Heaven declares that we are saved(Acts 4:12)

The HOLY SPIRIT is the most Loving and Kind Person and the most Powerful Being, but does He dwell in you??? Judge yourself according to the WORD of GOD(Phil.2:5-11), (John16:7-14), (Luke10:17-21), (Amos 5:24), (Ps.103-1-6), (Rom.10:9-13)

The only way to recognize satan and his demonic forces is by the HOLY SPIRIT; without the HOLY SPIRIT no one can recognize satan because he deceives the world by making lust pleasurable, money powerful, and religion traditional; in these things satan is then worshipped.

Prayer Changes Things!

Speaking the WORD of GOD, Declares Things!

Draw Nigh to GOD, Resist the devil in everything!

and in all these things we

Worship the True and Living Saviour JESUS CHRIST

Week 15

 

My GOD,  My GOD, why has thou forsaken me.....

but GOD has not forsaken you, because of CHRIST JESUS, the HOLY GHOST will never leave us, nor forsake us..... For He is GOD, forever with us and dwells within us..... GOD gives us a renewed mind and a refreshing of His HOLY SPIRIT ..... for we are endued with power and become sons and daughters of GOD....

For those who have been believers for 1 day or 1000 years, it may seem like all hell has broken loose in your life and before you became a believer, things didn't seem so difficult. But sin is only pleasureable for a moment and then the wages of sin is death but the gift, that a believer of JESUS CHRIST receives, is

Eternal Life. 

For CHRIST said, if you suffer with me, you shall reign with me.  

Many are mislead and told, you won't have to go through anything once your saved.... but many are the afflictions of the righteous but the LORD delivereth them, out of them all.  The HOLY GHOST, who is GOD here on earth, is our Comforter, our Teacher, our Keeper, and guides us into all truth; and know this, if you weren't a threat to satan's kingdom, he wouldn't be trying to steal, kill and destroy you!

The same power and anointing of the HOLY GHOST that JESUS has, as He is, so are we, fills us with His Word and when we speak His Word over our life, His Word does not return void, but it accomplishes everything it was sent out to do.....a good soldier is one who is able to go through..... for the race is not given to the swift nor the strong, but to the one that endures.....

Week 14

IDENTITY THEFT

When someone has stolen your information and/or misused your identity for their gain/purpose.  However, spiritually satan comes to steal, kill and destroy us(John 10:10); would you give in and allow that to continue or would you, in the natural, contact the credit bureau, credit lawyers, police, life-lock, www.idshield.com for monitoring and protection, change door locks, get ADT, change account numbers…and the list goes on.

When we operate in fear, we don’t know who we are and who’s we are, which opens the door for satan to come in and rob us of our spiritual identity, which causes us to function less than who GOD created us to be – Believers believing that through CHRIST JESUS we were made Kings and Priests(Rev.1:6), the Righteousness of GOD(2Corin.5:21),

So Spiritually we have, GOD our Abba Father, GOD the Son JESUS, GOD the HOLY SPIRIT and all of Heaven, to shield us with the Armor of GOD; the Helmet of Salvation, the Breastplate of Righteousness, our Loins girt about with TRUTH, our Feet Shod with the Preparation of the Gospel, in one hand the Sword of the Spirit which is the WORD of GOD  and in the other hand the Shield of Faith, Praying Always, and most of all having the Holy Spirit within us(Eph.6:13-18).

The Word of GOD tells us to be strong and of a good courage, fear not(Deut.31);

False – not what truth says about us regardless of what is happening…

Evidence – satan uses the cares of this world as facts to dominate us…

Appearing – seeming visible, gives the impression of being…

Real – exist

But the Kingdom of GOD cometh not with observation…when they will say, see here or see there, not so; but behold, the Kingdom of GOD is within you(Luke 17:20-21)…

So we are to fear not, for these things I have spoken unto you, that in JESUS ye might have peace…in the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; JESUS has overcome the world(John16:33).

For whosoever is born of GOD overcomes the world, and this is the Victory that overcame, even our Faith. Who is he that overcomes the world, but the Believer who believes that JESUS is the Son of GOD!!!(1John5:4-5)

--

Week 13

When we trust in the LORD with all our hearts...(Prov.3:5-6), it means we are completely surrendering all:

  • all of our ways
  • all of our thoughts
  • all of our emotions

For He said, "I know the thoughts that I think toward you, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end....(Jer.29:11) We must not give heed to seducing spirits and doctrine of devils; but we must flee:

  • envy                                  backbitting
  • strife                                 adultry
  • railings                             proudfulness
  • gossip                               vain conversations

from such withdraw thyself....(Gal.5:14-26)(1Tim.6:4-5)   Flee these things and follow after:

  • righteousness                    love
  • godliness                          patience
  • faith                                 meekness ....(1Tim.6:11)

For if we learn when to abase, without feeling downcast and low self esteem; and learn how to abound, not operating pridefully, but with a CHRIST LIKE mind, then we will see ourself abounding in GRACE always, the unmerited favor of GOD...(2Cor.9:8)

whether on the mountain top or down in the valley.

BE THE EXAMPLES OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS...(1Tim.4:12), in:

  • word                                       Spirit
  • conversation                           faith
  • charity                                    purity

neglect not the gift that is in thee - the HOLY SPIRIT!!!

Week 12

 

DON'T EVER GIVE UP!!!

For the race is not given to the swift nor the strong but to he that endures til' the end......(Ecc. 9:11)

Just because things don't seem

  • to be going the way you think it should go
  • the time in which it should have or going to happen
  • or even where

We were already predestined, called, justified and glorified(Rom.8:30) to carry out His will and His purpose in our life.  The direction that the Holy Spirit leads us, also comes with instructions, the WORD, but we must take heed and receive what He has for us.  When the opposition comes, satan, comes to kill, steal and destroy(John10:10), our identity, so we won't know who we are in CHRIST JESUS.  When we don't know who we are and who's we, we then

  • question ourselves(self-worth)
  • walk away
  • give up
  • throw in the towel

That's why it's vital, that we have a relationship with the Holy Spirit, because He has given us Power & Authority to overcome the race. 

Paul said, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the Righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.....(2Tim.4:7-8

SO GIVE DILIGENCE TO MAKE YOUR CALLING & ELECTION SURE!!!(2Pet.1:10)

Old Testament - Moses said, who am I...., and who has sent me..... GOD said, I will be with thee........I AM THAT I AM has sent me....(Ex.3:11-14)

New Testament - Even the Sprit of Truth whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him; but ye know Him, for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.......and He shall teach you all things......Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you......let not your heart be troubled, do not be afraid.....(John14:17-27)

Week 11

 

Why did GOD use a man with difficult speech to speak to a defiant king?

Why did GOD test a man's faith by using his beloved son?

Why did GOD take away a full army of men and bring them down to just a few, to fight against thousands?

Why did GOD use a man to speak to a valley of dry bones?

Why did GOD use a woman to have faith, that through her obedience, she shall have her Boaz?

Why did GOD use a woman to press through, after spending all that she had, and then trying faith in JESUS?

Why does GOD strenthen us in the midst of satan's wicked storms?

Why did GOD use a cussing fisherman, to be an Apostle, a fisher of men?

Why did GOD use a tax collector to help spread the WORD of GOD?

Why did GOD use a fornicator/adulterer to show other's their own sins?

Why did GOD use a murderer to be blinded in his sin and then enlighten him to the GOSPEL?

Why did GOD send us His Holy Spirit, to teach us, to keep us, to comfort us, in all truth?

Why did GOD use His only begotten Son to pay the price for all, that we might become His son's and daughters?

All these questions and the only answer is

JESUS, oh' how He loves us...

...

Week 10

  • heartache, headache
  • chest pain, sore-throat
  • bill collectors, school fees, payment overdue
  • car note, license revoked
  • job hunting, continuously scrunting
  • loved ones lost, coping with the cost,

- oh' how the cares of this world, exhausts us....  How does one go on??? 

GOD Almighty is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we may ask or think....(Eph. 3:20)  When we begin to acknowledge GOD in all our

ways...(Prov. 3:5-6) then, like JESUS is, so are we...(1 John 4:17) and because its Him doing the work in us....(John 14:10) and through JESUS CHRIST we were made the righteousness of GOD....(2Corin. 5:20-21) so then we are to see ourselves as GOD sees us.  When GOD looks at us, He sees the Blood of JESUS that covered us, washed us, cleansed us, and JESUS said, "my peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you", (John 14:27) and the power of the HOLY SPIRIT dwelling in us makes us overcomers that no matter what we come to, we are able to go through.... There hath no temptation taken you but such is common to man: but GOD is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will, with the temtation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it...(1Corin.10:13)  And besides, what can seperate us from the love of CHRIST? shall trubulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? - ... Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angles, nor principalities, nor poweres, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of GOD, which is in CHRIST JESUS our LORD....(Rom.8:34-39)

Hereby know we that we dewll in Him, and He in us of His Spirit.....(1John 4:13)

Whosoever shall confess that JESUS is the Son of GOD, GOD dwelleth in him, and he in GOD......GOD is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in GOD, and GOD in him. Herein is our love made perfect, because as He is, so are we in this world, not using this worldly kind of love.......but perfect love casteth out fear.......(1John 4:14-21)

Also abiding is Faith and Hope.....and for us today though I feed the poor, take care of my family, pay my bills, pay tithes and give offering, and have great stewardship......if i have not LOVE then all the above is in vain......(1Corin.13)

Week 8

 

And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit....(Mark 9:17);

--straightway the dumb spirit tare him and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.......(Mark 9:20)

JESUS asked the boys father, "how long since this came unto the boy? And the boy's father answered and said, since a child....(Mark 9:21) - CHRIST already knew, but needed to make known unto the people who were standing among them, how long the boy has been suffering the torment of a demonic spirit....  There are those who just stand by just to see what will happen so they can have a story to tell, but we ought to know those who "labor" among us who will help edify us and not defy us..... and we ourselves accept things and allow it to become a custom, a way of life, allowing this false pretense to toss us to and fro, which was never intended for us from the beginning. GOD created male and female and blessed them to be fruitful and multiply and have dominion on the earth over everything and behold it was very good.....(Gen.1:26-31)

The boy's father continued to describe, it has cast him into fire and water to destroy him; but if thou can do anything, have compassion on us, and help us....(Mark 9:22)

JESUS said unto the boy's father, if thou can believe, all things are possible to them that believe....(Mark 9:23)

When we seek to find out what is GOD's will for our life.....begin with:

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end...(Jerem. 29:11-14)  And know this, GOD has created us for His purpose, even CHRIST, as He is, so are we.......and we can speak over our children ahead of time, men speak, "my seed is blessed", women speak, "my womb is fruitful" and at time of conception we must speak and declare the blessing of the LORD upon our children for they are the future CHURCH.

for example: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - false pretense deceived by satan.....

but this is what the WORD of GOD says about us:

                                   Anointing destroys the yoke...(Is.10:27)

                                   Delivered from all fear.....(Col.1:13)

                                  Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing that ye may abound in hope,                                                     through the power of the Holy Ghost....(Rom.15:13)

                                  Declare His righteousness over your life....(Rom.3:25-26)

 

Week 7

 

Master, careth not that we should perish in  the storm.....JESUS said, "Oh ye of little faith......(Mark 4:35-41)

From the very beginning mankind was given dominion over the earth..........

and we know that deception took place(Gen. 3:1-14)  and we gave up that authority through evil communication corrupting good manners(1 Corin. 15:38) However, JESUS CHRIST came and was made a propitiation for our sins(1 John 2:2 & 4:9-10) and dominion was restored and we were made the righteousness of GOD

(2 Corin. 5:21 & Rom.3:22-24 & 5:1-11)

Once we have been born again, we have the Power and the Authority(John 1:12) to bind and rebuke  every trick, every plot , every plan, any lack, any disorder, every evil work of the enemy, CAST IT DOWN!!! PEACE BE STILL!!! We don't have to accept things just because it's been that way for so long and we have become a custom.....did we not recognize satan's device in any of the previous storms....We have the GOD given right to speak things into existence(2 Corin.10:4-6) Storms are not of GOD, what the devil meant for bad, GOD turns it around for our good(Gen.50:20) Hold on to His ever unchanging hand. Stay steadfast and see the salvation of the LORD(Rom. 8:28-39) We know that "Job" went through hardships and stayed faithful no matter what....... and he didnt have who we have today - the HOLY SPIRIT; Our Comforter, our Keeper.......Come on CHURCH we have the greater power dwelling on the inside of us and greater is He, than he who is in this world, in our situations, in our circumstances, what a difference it would make if we know who we are in CHRIST JESUS and speak His Word....... if you only just BELIEVE!!!

Week 6

 

I heard a song and it represents the true meaning of not my will, but thy will be done...

"I WANNS BE DIFFERENT, I WANNA BE CHANGED, 'TILL ALL OF ME IS GONE".. 

Yes that's it....'till all of me is gone-

all of my thoughts,

all of my ways,

all of my will,

every twist and turn of my emotional rolo-coaster,

all of my actions,

the way I think things should go, the way I think it should be....

there is a way that seemeth right unto a man but the end there of is death....(Prov.14:12)

"AND ALL THAT REMAINS"

the Holy Spirit will dwell with you, and shall be in you....(John14:17)

"A FIRE SO BRIGHT, THE WHOLE WORLD CAN SEE, THERE'S SOMETHING DIFFERENT"...

Yes, JESUS made the difference in each and every one of us.....

Therefore if any man be in CHRIST, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of GOD, who hath reconciled us to Himself by JESUS CHRIST, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;  For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the Rightousness of GOD in Him....(2 Corin.5:17-18, 21)

But in all things approving ourselves, as the Ministers of GOD, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings; By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, By the Word of Truth, by th Power of GOD, by the Armor of Righteousness on the right hand and on the left, By honour and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true;

As unkown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing, as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things...(2Corin.6:4-10)

Be encouraged.....stay steadfast no matter what! 

Week 5

 

The Holy Spirit is our Comforter, in the midst of the trials and tribulations..... notice I said, who He is to us without claiming the troubles belonging to us.  We are quick to come into agreement with negativity from satan when he says "oh look what your going through, see He don't love you, this wouldn't be happening if He loved you".  But the devil is a liar!  -for He, JESUS, first loved us and gave Himself for us..(1John.4:9-19) The fact may be that a situation has arrived, but JESUS, who is Truth, changes facts and assures us that, "He will not leave you comfortless-(John 14:16-17) for the Father shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever". And the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, shall guide you and teach you all things.... He assures me to be of good cheer, like JESUS has overcome, makes me believe that I AM an Overcomer....(John 16:33)     

And who are they, that overcometh the world:

  • trials/tribulations
  • issues in life
  • sickness/illness
  • lack/poverty
  • emotional-rolocoasters
  • mental-torment/mind battles

.......they, that believe, that JESUS is, the Son of GOD!!! (1John5:5)

When we don't know our rights or what we are entitled too - GOD said, "my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge"....(Hos.4:6) But when we are filled with Power and the Anointing by the Holy Spirit, and we are taught and enlightened to our identity in CHRIST JESUS, and that GOD is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we can ask or think (Eph.3:19-20), then we know, we can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens us....(Phil.4:13) And we are sealed unto the day of redemption....(Eph. 4:30) 

Week 4

 

But the hour cometh and now is when true worshipers, shall worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth; for the Father seeketh such to worship Him....(John 4:23)

GOD is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth....(John 4:24)

There is no waiting for tomorrow, but now is the time, tomorrow is not promised, but eternal life through JESUS CHRIST is, for Faith is now, JESUS is now, salvation is offered to everyone, but its up to you .... for we are not waiting on GOD, but GOD is waiting on us.... the way has already been shown, the truth has already  been spoken and eternal life has been given.... we are to repent then receive ... not begging Him, but declaring LORD I thank you that you have forgiven me of all of my sins, you have washed me clean by your precious Blood and I am made whole again..... He's even married to the backslider, just slide on back to JESUS our Redeemer, our way maker, our mountain mover, our ground shaker, our wind breaker, our conselor, our bridge over water....Yes JESUS CHRIST our Saviour, the only begotten Son of GOD our Father....Thank You Holy Spirit for you declare witness of this and we bare witness also.

 

Week 3

 

JESUS Prayed..... And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true GOD, and JESUS CHRIST whom thou has sent....(John 17:3)   To know the true and almighty GOD, to know JESUS CHRIST is by the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, who will teach you all things and shall testify of JESUS, and ye also shall bear witness. The WORD also tells us that "whosoever believes" in JESUS shall have everlasting life. And we know that this life is in JESUS, the Son of GOD, and they that have the Son, have life.....

Well, how does one know they have JESUS CHRIST?

  • When ye abide in my Word and my Word abide in you.....(John 15:7
  • Owe no man anything, but to love one another; he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law..(Rom. 13:8)
  • Ye also shall bring forth much fruit...(John 15:5)
  • Ye also shall bear witness....(John 15:27)..."living and declaring the Gospel"
  • Hope fills you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit....(Rom. 15:13)
  • Having the mind of CHRIST; things revealed unto us by the Holy Spirit...the deep things...(1Corin 2:10)
  • You are the temple of GOD, and that the Spirit of GOD, dwelleth in you.....(1Corin. 3:16)
  • Ye are washed, ye are sanctified, and ye are justified in the name of the LORD JESUS and by the Spirit of GOD....(1Corin. 6:11)

When do I receive eternal life in JESUS CHRIST as my LORD and SAVIOUR?

  • when thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD JESUS
  • believe in thine heart that GOD hath raised Him from the dead on the 3rd day, thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation:

And whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed; whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved. (Rom10:8-13)

Yet Not I, but CHRIST Liveth In Me......(Gal2:20)

Week 2

The Serenity Prayer is not in the scriptures of the Bible.  People have adopted this statement as a prayer and has been adopted by anonymous and other twelve-step programs.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can, And the wisdom to know the difference..

But GOD granted us the Holy Spirit. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of GOD, even to them that believe on His name….(John 1:12)  And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever....(John14:16)

Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth Him but ye know Him for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

That phrase continued to talk about accepting hardships as a pathway to peace;
The devil is a liar!  We don’t have to accept anything…. If its not of GOD,

  • then bind it,
  • rebuke it, and
  • cast down everything that exalts itself against the word of GOD….             
Your situation may be a fact, but truth changes facts……. JESUS CHRIST paid the price, He nailed all of our sins to the cross and we are no longer bound, but we are free to serve CHRIST JESUS as our LORD and Saviour, as our Redeemer, as our Way maker, as our Mountain-mover…. No longer conformed to this world but transformed by the renewing of our minds.
  • So tell death, JESUS is my Resurrector,
  • tell mind battles, JESUS is my Counselor,
  • when im hungry, He’s my bread of life, and
  • when I'm thirsty, He’s the well that will never run dry…

And the same Holy Spirit that was in JESUS, He offered Him to us, Peace I leave with you, my Peace I give unto you……So when storms are raging, bills are exceeding, emotions are overwhelming, you have the Power and the Authority to speak, “Peace Be Still”
 

Week 1

Don't let religion cloud your mind.....satan wants to keep us clouded and burden down so we can't see or acknowledge the Power and the Anointing of the

Holy Spirit dwelling in us:

-- then we won't know that we are conquerors

-- then we won't know that we are overcomers

-- then we won't know we can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens us

-- then we won't know that all things are possible to those that believe

But the simple revelation is, when your down, the only way to go is UP!!!

CHRIST said, "if I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me". (John 12:32)

So as we lift up the name of JESUS, He's raising us up, we are growing up in Him, forever learning, forever increasing in Him and coming into the knowledge of all truth.  

For we know that all things work together for good, to them that love GOD, to them who are called, according to His purpose.... (Rom. 8:28)
