When Friends Betray…God Delivers


Psalm 55 NIV
1 Listen to my prayer, O God,
do not ignore my plea;
2     hear me and answer me.
My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught
3     because of what my enemy is saying,
because of the threats of the wicked;
for they bring down suffering on me
and assail me in their anger.

4 My heart is in anguish within me;
the terrors of death have fallen on me.
Fear and trembling have beset me;
horror has overwhelmed me.
6 I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest.
7 I would flee far away
and stay in the desert;[c]
8 I would hurry to my place of shelter,
far from the tempest and storm.”

Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words,
for I see violence and strife in the city.
10 Day and night they prowl about on its walls;
malice and abuse are within it.
11 Destructive forces are at work in the city;
threats and lies never leave its streets.

12 If an enemy were insulting me,
I could endure it;
if a foe were rising against me,
I could hide.
13 But it is you, a man like myself,
    my companion, my close friend,
14 with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship
    at the house of God,
as we walked about
    among the worshipers.

15 Let death take my enemies by surprise;
let them go down alive to the realm of the dead,
for evil finds lodging among them.

16 As for me, I call to God,
and the Lord saves me.
17 Evening, morning and noon
I cry out in distress,
and he hears my voice.
18 He rescues me unharmed
from the battle waged against me,
even though many oppose me.
19 God, who is enthroned from of old,
who does not change—
he will hear them and humble them,
because they have no fear of God.

20 My companion attacks his friends;
    he violates his covenant.
21 His talk is smooth as butter,
    yet war is in his heart;
his words are more soothing than oil,
    yet they are drawn swords.

22 Cast your cares on the Lord
    and he will sustain you;
he will never let
    the righteous be shaken.
23 But you, God, will bring down the wicked
    into the pit of decay;
the bloodthirsty and deceitful
    will not live out half their days.

But as for me, I trust in you.

 

More of you oh Lord 2


Spiritual Maturity Test

Lets see how teachable we are. Lets test to see how well we follow instructions.

Write down what you see in yourself and how readily you are to walk in obedience?

At the end share what you have seen in yourself and what through the Holy Spirit you will look to change about being obedient or humble?

More of you oh Lord 2

Sharing from the prayer conference this morning on the assignment above was deep.

As we begin to look inward and search and listen we begin to see the real us.

The Holy Spirit also begins to work and show us how we need to change for the kingdom of God.

Through this exercise, we learnt that we should come before God naked ready for worship. Nakedness before God is simply stripping ourselves of our sinful nature.  Jealousy, envy, malice, pride, lying, pretentiousness, favoritism, disobedience, murmuring, ungratefulness, stubborn, stiff-nakedness, just to name a few ungodly behaviors that hinder us from living a blessed life and get between us getting intimate with God. “Too much clothes”. Let us lay these things aside as we connect with God.

What is our new life showing?

Can someone see Christ within us in our smile, in our general attitude?

More than what we say it is what we do and we have to remember that our daily lives should reflect Christ.

Have a wonderful day as we grow together and mature in the kingdom of God.

I love it when I’m in the company of people that can uplift you, motivate you, and challenge you to become a much better YOU and not them or someone else.

I therefore have the honor of meeting one such person yesterday, and spent a life-changing evening with her and my best friend Trudy Ross.

Mrs Debbie Miller-Curtis, thank you so much for your passion, diligence, and obedience to our Lord, for I am a life that is changed as a result.

You are the perfect example of what a Christian should be.

Like the prophet Elisha who served under the prophet Elijah, I will never leave your side until I can inherit your mantle, so I imagine I will be making way too many trips to Jersey.

Go into the World and be the Hands & Feet of Jesus


Mark 16:14-20 “14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat , and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen . 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved ; but he that believeth not shall be damned . 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe ; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20 And they went forth , and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following . Amen.”

The group went to Camden today to feed.  As usual, it was a blessing. Before we could start there was a line of people waiting for us. The welcome was different and we thank God.  We have prayed for the people to be receptive and today they were. It was easy to share the word of God, hug, kiss, and just listen to the variety of stories.

We served over 100 people coffee and donuts. Today, it was “very different” we talked with several people and heard some stories that help us know that God is working things out even when things seem down. The overarching message is that his mercy and grace availeth much. We have a lot to be thankful for…

It was a pleasure connecting with Leroy, his family and Tyrell and his friends. They have a lot to share and sometimes just need a listening ear and a face that smiles and reminds them of hope.

At the end, we prayed with several persons; read the word of God with them and lend a listening ear, which for the homeless can be rare.

Father we thank you for the opportunity to share your word with the less fortunate. Father we pray that from this day forward your word will take root in their lives and there will be a change as these people seek after you. Thank you for Camden City and the change that is taking place right now.

Proverbs 3

1My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, 2for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.3Let love and faithfulness never leave you;bind them around your neck,write them on the tablet of your heart.4Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.5Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. 7Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. 8This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. 9Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;10then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. 11My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, 12because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in. 13Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, 14for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. 15She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. 16Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. 17Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. 18She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed. 19By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; 20by his knowledge the watery depths were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew. 21My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion; 22they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. 23Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. 24When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. 25Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, 26for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared. 27Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. 28Do not say to your  neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—when you already have it  with you. 29Do not plot harm against your neighbor, who lives trustfully near you. 30Do not accuse anyone for no reason— when they have done you no harm.31Do not envy the violent or choose any of their ways. 32For the Lord detests the perverse but takes the upright into his confidence. 33The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous. 34He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed. 35The wise inherit honor, but fools get only shame.

Are You in the Perfect Will of God by Christ’s Kingdom Remnant Representative


The Lord is sending a WARNING to us as to why it is so important that we make sure that every day we are SMACK BANG in the centre of his perfect WILL for our lives. Unless you are asleep, you should clearly be able to see the BLATENT warfare that we are up against which is hitting us from all angles and every direction in society right now.

Living in God's Will

This moment and it is not just us (the children of God) but also everyone who is being AFFECTED or INFECTED by the continual onslaught of the enemy’s new strategies and attacks.  Remember the word of God says (Eph 6:12) “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms”!

There is a careful and strategic plan of attack against anyone who does not comply with the agenda of Satan in his long-term goal of taking as many people to HELL as possible and the destruction of the children of God at all costs. (John 10:10)
There are daily news reports surfacing on the CONTAMUNATION of various popular FOOD ITEMS & DRINKS and it should be old news to you that certain drinking water has been compromised for a long time. We are being attacked from the air with “CHEM-TRAILS.

I just yesterday read an article that exposed the FACT that high volumes of led were found in popular MAKE UP lines which can cause CANCER & DISEASE yet the Lord is saying many are OBLIVIOUS and continue to be led by their FLESH and not by the Holy Spirit.
Have you noticed that there is now a record number of women shaving or cutting their hair in the pursuit of going natura! Let me ask you a question, do you think that it’s just for fashion or a trend or is there a deeper SPIRITUAL MEANING behind what we are seeing being manifest before our very eyes?

The chemicals that we use on our bodies are being used against us at a greater level than ever before. The rate of disease is growing and there are now many new diseases being found that are IMMUNE to ANTIBIOTICS, so what will happen when there are no longer any suitable medications left?
Satan has every angle covered. The Air, various FOODS, certain WATERS and various MAKE UP lines have all been COMPROMISED to some extent. I have even read that they have put hormones in certain urban clothing lines that can cause men to be more EFFEMINATE and women to be more MASCULINE and the things I have listed above are just to name but a few of the things that are happening RIGHT NOW.

God is saying to us today that the only way that we will escape the plans of Satan to try and DESTROY us in these last days is to CONTINUALLY make sure that we are in the PERFECT WILL OF GOD for our lives and also make sure we are quick to REPENT!
The word of God says (Mark 16:18) “They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”. When the apostle Paul was bitten by the snake and wasn’t harmed it was because he was in the perfect center of the WILL OF GOD.

There is no more time to be unsure or wishy washy.  Satan’s attacks are relentless and they will not stop until Christ returns. The Holy Spirit is leading us in many new directions because of what the enemy is doing. Make sure you ask daily about food and the things listed, pray for direction and even bless the clothes you buy because it is EVERYWHERE. “Those that are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.” It is time to make sure you are a SON, because RIGHT NOW it is surely means the difference between LIFE & DEATH.

A prayer for Boston by Christ’s Kingdom Remnant Representative


Father we give you praise today, on a day, which was not promised, and some sadly never made it through. We thank you that you still stand by us even in the midst of despair and through the wicked acts of those who continue to plan and plot the harm and destruction of our brothers and sisters!

Holy Spirit

Father I pray and stand in the gap for my brothers and sisters in Boston who have had to experience the trauma of the calamities set by the wicked.

Father we ask you to have your way in protecting and guiding your children who hear your voice so they can avoid any and all danger and also alert others to what is ahead. Father we pray strength for those of us who have been personally affected by the events that have unfolded over the last 24 hours and we pray that you would continue to provide the peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of tragedy, uncertainty and death and destruction in Jesus name.

Father according to the power and authority you have given us as your children we bind up the spirit of death and premature death in Jesus name. We bind up the spirit of violence and destruction, we bind up all calamities, all murderous spirits of malice and discord, all premeditated wickedness and assignments intended to hurt or destroy your children.

Father, we bind up all the plans of Satan to further steal kill and destroy.  We bind up jealousy and depravity, rage and anarchy in Jesus mighty name.

Father, we cancel every assignment against your children and we speak that every plot will be uncovered and exposed for your glory.  We come against and curse the root of all the demonic intentions of people trying to benefit from this disaster, Father delay and frustrate their plans of wickedness and control, shut down their operations and dismantle what they have already tried to do in Jesus name.

Father we bind the strong man over Boston right now in faith and according to the Holy Scriptures and we lose the angelic light from heaven into the lives of everyone affected and the Holy Spirits power into their hearts causing them to be strengthened supernaturally for your glory as we read this prayer on their behalf. Father forewarn your children who could possibly be in harm’s way in the aftermath of these events, give a stronger level of discernment to your prophets, intercessors and prayer warriors at this time so they can see what is ahead and warn others.

Father we thank you for your word that says that you never leave us nor forsake us. Thank you for being our only hope in times of death and destruction, uncertainty and wickedness Father, we love you and without your protection we are nothing, we give you the glory and the honor and in Jesus name we pray this prayer to you Jehovah God and in Jesus  name we pray.

God is an on time God by Viris Hart


Good afternoon friends. I would like to tell you how God has been faithful to me over the past couple years!!! and very recently I was burdened about whether to let my house go or what exactly to do. In my mind I prayed and said Lord I have decided and have come to terms with letting the house go if that’s what you want me to do otherwise help me find a tenant. I had all my friends helping me to pray as well including Prayer Works.
God is an on time God

Some people told me to walk away and get rid of the stress!!! so have been talking with the mortgage company. We worked out a payment arrangement and I did not consummate the agreement …I though for sure its over now but a mail came from the Mortgage company and I called them and they worked another arrangement. I had 30 days to make the payment. I had 2/3 and needed the other 1/3 I had no idea where I was gonna get it but I knew in my heart I was not going to ask anyone to help me. I became tired of asking for help. I was really depending on my tax returns. Well a few days later I found out that the IRS was auditing me. :( A couple of days before the deadline to make the payment I woke up had my devotion and went online to check my bank. My eyes almost popped out of my head there was so much money in my account I almost fainted. The IRS had put a portion of my returns ……the exact amount that I needed to make the payment and the extras I needed to mail it off!!! hallelujah!!!! Thank you Lord!!

Now I really started praying m ore fervently because I had a deadline in which to get the person. Many persons came and loved the place but did not come back. On the final day the agent called and told me she had a family. They looked at the house and told her they wanted to move in 5 days……..they moved in last Saturday and praise God…everything is on track…the arrangement has been accepted. Truly our God is an on time God!!! He was right on time here and I have learnt that I REALLY need to just trust him even if in my natural state of mind I cant see anything happening. He truly is working behind the scenes…….I also found out that my tenant had just lost her home in a foreclosure……..and that is the person he chose to help me to save mine…..how awesome is that!!!!!!

I also had asked for prayer for a new job….that has not materialized yet BUT I have gotten many clients since for my Insurance business. I was able to reinstate my license and now I really want to focus on my Insurance which would give me a lot more time to focus on other things….so please help me pray in this direction. I believe that this is where I should be……
God I love you!! Thank you for loving me, saving me, protecting me, caring for me, blessing me, providing for me, covering me everyday…you are AWESOME!!!

Transformation by Christ’s Kingdom Remnant Representative


God wants you to know on this day that when He is building his glory inside us it is not necessarily, what we would expect with our natural minds! We start to think about how He works to develop that power within and we may immediately picture ourselves laid out prostrate.  Laboring long hours in prayer and intercession or going on 40 day fasts or to spiritual retreats and all that stuff that certainly does help with the process, but actually the reality I am learning is a lot less deep, because it is already done.

Transformed, Finished WorkGod’s Finished Work

Being human we tend to want to justify our works by looking at what we do as a way to judge what God is doing deep on the inside of us! Now, please do not misunderstand me.  God does lead us to do things for his glory and the things mentioned above like prayer, intercession and fasting do edify us and are very advantageous to our walk with the Lord but there is still a work going on deep down within our spirit man that has nothing to do with anything that we could contribute. This is the work of our savior Jesus Christ on the cross and our now divine exchange! (2 Pet 1:3)

It often feels like nothing is happening when we are going about our lives, doing the standard normal stuff that needs to be done, daily. We are perusing the will of God, going to work and to church as usual, somehow we fit in everything else that needs to be done and we could be forgiven for thinking that because we are not feeding the 5000, raising the dead or parting the red sea that nothing major is really happening! (Rom 2:10) But God wants you to know that YOU ARE WRONG!

The real exchange of God’s glory being given to us happened when (Jesus) willingly gave his life on our behalf on the cross! However, over time our Father is able to build up that same glory inside us.  With every conversation, every vexation, every situation or problem at work, every family dilemma, every financial problem or issue, every test of integrity at church or at home, every monthly pay check, every prayer, every choice and every divine exchange, every test and trial, situation and circumstance to name but a few. He uses everything in our lives to help cultivate and develop the process of steadily building the glory of Christ deep down within our spirit. (Rom 11:36)

There is nothing that God does not and cannot use to help build us, even our dreams and visions and the inner revelations we receive serve as an expression or an outlet for what God is up to when all we are doing is perusing his will and going about our normal day to day routines. The word of God say’s “Don’t judge anything before the APPOINTED time” (1 Cor 4:5) because while you are in PROCESS you will not be able to see what is really going on because it looks like nothing is changing. (Rom 8:28)

When a butterfly is in the cocoon you cannot see what is taking place but when it is RELEASED, you cannot miss the TRANSFORMATION, it is clear for all to see what was happening in the hidden season and it’s a vision of BEAUTY.

Be encouraged that God is at work behind the scenes in our spirits as we speak regardless of what you perceive because of what Christ has already done! When you can’t see it praise him anyway because when your time comes you will be a sight to behold and truly UNRECOGNISABLE, Shalom!

 

You are Qualified through Trails and testing…Christ’s Kingdom Representative


Everyone wants to receive the BREAKTHROUGH, FAVOUR, SUPERNATURAL PROVISION and MIRACLES SIGNS & WONDERS but start talking about the SUFFERING in proportion to the blessings of God in your walk with the Lord and suddenly we have all developed SELECTIVE HEARING!

Rigorous Training

Jesus wants you to go back to the WORD today and really look at the lives of any of his servants that did great works on the earth. Where there are abundant blessings there is also suffering of some kind to go with it. Suffering QUALIFIES YOU, it conditions your heart and firmly fixes the agenda of God into your spirit so you are deemed worthy to walk in the greatness of your calling.

There is something unique about the hardships and trials and the tests that suffering will bring that can teach you more about yourself than any other situation you will ever experience. When we are not saved and we suffer needlessly for Satan’s agenda we look at it from the perspective of life being unfair or we resign our plight to Karma or fate!

When we come to Christ and we suffer just as much if not more we start to complain and get dismayed by the REAL WALK WITH GOD, thinking that God doesn’t love us or start doubting our whole walk altogether. James the apostle said “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

Suffering is the NORM!

If Jesus suffered so shall we but instead of complaining REJOICE (Rom 5:3-5) because you have become worthy to take on the sufferings of Christ! It is an honor to be the furnace of affliction (Isa 48:10) because it is there that God’s glory can truly be revealed and you are being tested as GOLD! (1Pet 1:7)
