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!

 

Living Like Jesus in 2013


“Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did. I John 2:6 NLT

How did Jesus live each day?
Is it really possible for us to live as He lived?
Here are five things to consider:

The first is His dependency.
Jesus lived each day dependent upon His Father. We can also live each day in complete dependency upon the Lord. He is our strength, our life, our sufficiency, and He is the source of all we need.

The second is His faithfulness.
Jesus lived each day in faithfulness to what His Father called Him to do.As followers of Jesus Christ we can be faithful to what God has called us to do and do His will whole-heartedly.”

The Plain Truth about Christmas by Owen Sewell


Isaiah KJV 9:6-7 “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

Good Morning folks, it`s the day after and I have enjoyed it and was and am still grateful for it because of one purpose! Jesus Christ is and was the reason for this season and I welcomed it in that regard!
However, as learned Children of God we ought to know by now that the 25th of any previous or this present December is not really and truly Jesus` Birthday! It`s actually the day that culminates in the worship of the Pagan`s sun god Sull. However God has the ability to turn around things, what evil men took for their purposes, in the fullness of time the Lord causes it to be used for His Glory and that`s what I truly admire about Christmas!
There is more, but let`s leave it here for now! Be blessed in knowing that the Eternal stepped out of Eternity for a time to become Mortal so He could die to pay back a debt that you could not; and thus causing us to become adopted sons/daughters of The Most High God Forever amen…
Oh what a love? God bless you all throughout this special season and on into the coming New Year!
Do expect your miracle this time around and God bless!

I Sought the Lord and He Heard me by Marie Medley-Locke


Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need”.

Father in the name of Jesus we come boldly to your throne because of our trust and confidence in you. It is because we know that there is no one like you and no one but you that can heal the brokenhearted heal sicknesses and diseases and give complete deliverance why we approach you in this way.
Lord hear our call we pray. Please minister to our needs as we continue to trust you, love you serve you and give you glory In Jesus name ..

The Steps of the Righteous by John L Hemphill III


Psalm 37:23-27 (KJV)23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

Evening has come; with it comes the end of the Sabbath and the preparation of worship for Sunday. Today rather than preaching let’s just talk and think about the world we live in and our own lives. Think about the memories we have about our childhood.
In life we see a lot of things that we see. We see and hear things that we think our right and we see things that we think are wrong. What makes us want to do right and wrong? Well, it stems to the Garden of Eden which speak about the knowledge of Good and Evil.

However, if we are living the right way then how do we know it? And also what occurs with those who live right versus those who do wicked.
Proverbs 29:27 “An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.”
This tells us that those who live wrong or do not abide by the ways of God or right are disgusting to those who do live a pleasing life to God. Likewise, if you are living the way that God approves of then you can be sure that those who are rebellious to the Lord or living in a less than pure way will hate you for it. Have you ever seen someone talk about a person that is living right and they don’t have a realistic reason to talk negative about them? Have you ever seen a person not like you simply because they don’t like the way you look when you are trying to live right? This is a good example.
Listen, if you live right then you will find those who live wicked as being detestable. If you don’t find a person who is living wrong as being detestable then that should be a warning sign to you that we should go to God in prayer about you own life; humble ourselves to the Lord and let Him change us. Likewise, if everyone likes you; even those who don’t live right the something is wrong because if you are living right then those who live wrong won’t like you.
But ask yourself the question; how do you know your living right; how do you know God approves of you? Well, its not how you feel or what you think because that can be programmed by how you grow up. If you are raised up to be prejudice then your conscience will operate around it so you can’t trust how you feel.
Listen, when it comes to programming everyone is right in our own eyes. Look at Proverbs 21:2
Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.”
We will always think we are right and ladies and gents that includes me yet it is God you decides what is right which is why we can not justify the evils of one person over another. The Lord, or in this word for God; Adonai or Master; our God and Master ponders our heart, our feeling, our emotions and He considers what we are approving of or who we approve of.
So we know we want to be right; we know that if we are right then we will see what is wrong as being wrong; we know that those who are wrong will hate us if we are pleasing God; but we also have to be careful because its easy to think we are right if we don’t use the word of God to measure what is right and wrong. When we are not right but we base it on ourselves it is easy to think our wrong is right; everyone is in danger of this truth; I am; a pauper who begs for change or the President; if God is not the standard of righteousness we fall short and we will be punished for it because we bring it on ourselves.
Proverbs 25:26 “A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring.”
In this case here it shows the danger of those who are Christians who support anything that is evil no matter what it is; you place your testimony on danger just like a troubled spring. Image if you were starving on a hot day and you just wanted a cold drink because you’ve been in 100 degree heat; and imagine you went to a water fountain and you looked for relief and found the fountain isn’t working; that is what type of testimony you would be living; those who see you and expect you to uphold the gospel and the truth of God; the moral standards that God has set will see you as being a let down and you don’t want that do you? It wouldn’t make sense to go that way so why not use God as the foundation.
So often people say they believe in God but they justify wrong because they believe everything that God says except what they want to overlook and then you fall in the danger of this verse. Proverbs 28:4
Proverbs 28:4 “They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.”
We have to be careful who we praise and speak well of and support because we must deny what God puts in us; the knowledge of right and wrong and we can find ourselves praising someone who is wicked or praising actions that are wicked. However, Ladies and Gents, if you are living right and you use God’s word; the Holy Bible to guide your life then your life will contend with the wicked; you will be at odds with those who live wickedly; as a matter of fact you can’t help it because you will be moving against the grain of those who are wicked.
There is joy however to come from this for those who depend on the Lord and use the word of God to guide there lives spiritually, morally, ethically, and physically. You will see the wicked and the wicked policies come to an end; you will see those who uphold wrong ways come to an end because you will outlast them if your foundation is on the Lord, not race, not social stances, not clubs, not even personal ideas based on how we were raised; but on the righteousness of God.
Proverbs 29:16 “When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.”
Ladies and Gents, we live in a time when like a decade ago our people are being murdered in our cities; schools aren’t teaching people right and wrong but only what they want to instead of what they need; we see an immoral push to try to turn away the very fabric of what a family is away from Americans by mocking marriage and by doing so mocking the salvation work of Jesus Christ who loves us as a husband should love a wife; they mock the very righteousness of who God is by trying to call homosexuality a civil right when it is a mockery of the divine and the hope of everyone, even them who mock of how a God can restore us all out of love. We are under attack by Hollywood who hope to force Americans to reject Jesus and the Bible and what it teaches for immorality and its not just Hollywood but now even the very Democratic Party.
We are under attack, on Television, in Music, in the Movies, on the Radio, how then can you wonder how years ago we had the strength to see children play outside or people having dignity in where they lived but now they don’t; it’s been a slow steady attack. Christians we are at war; we need to be proud of who we serve; Jesus Christ; and we need to stand up for what we believe by using the Holy Bible to determine what is right and rejecting wrong.

Check the Spirit before you indulge by Owen Sewell


1 John 4:1-6  (KJV) 4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Good Evening Folks, I greet each person in the Mighty Name Of Jesus Christ!! Through the Mighty Holy Spirit, I`ve been teaching a few weeks now on the Subject of HALLOWEEN!! I must say the response have been good but it`s so surprising that so much of God`s people do not know that this so-called holiday is really a celebrated day in the world of the Occult!!! Before I started the Spirit of the Lord said to me, “…that this has been a spot and a huge blemish in your offering to me O America.” We who are called by the name of the Almighty ought to know better, we allow our children from infants to young adult to dabble in this Ungodly practice without considering the Spiritual ramifications!! Here is a testimony of someone who knows about Halloween and it`s effects!! Rev. John Todd an EX-GR
AND DRUID PRIEST saved by the grace of Jesus Christ!!! “I was a Druid High Priest! The power structure that I was apart of, controlled LODGES, POLITICIANS, and WITCHES!! In fact, I had over 65 000 top witches under my authority. Our goal was to destroy Bible-Believing Churches and make witchcraft our nation`s (America) religion.” Friends, I adjured you that if you used to take part in Halloween please stop and repent and stop allowing your children to participate in this ghastly ritual!!! Do have yourselves a good evening and God bless!!! If you want to know more, visit my page!! I urge you to go back start from Part 1 backwards to Part 8 which is the current post, God bless!!!

 

 

Be Joyful for Others by Sheliethe Golding


1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Life at times is funny as it relates to perception and the past. Sometimes we operate like a dumper truck, we use peoples past against them. We all have our own past to deal with. Let be honest. There is at least one thing we have done in the past that we wish we had not done or it caused us embarrassment when we remember it.  This is true for everyone.

So why do we forget when it comes on to ridiculing someone because of their past. My pastor would say if you are talking about a minute ago or yesterday you are talking out of unforgiveness… Moreover, the word of God encourages us to forgive.

Ask the Holy Spirit to help us live in forgiveness!

In addition, people become cruel and they think that because you had such a past it should prevent you from receiving God’s blessings. Now, it does not work like that. God forgives us of our sins the moment we ask for forgiveness and he does not hold our past against us.  Therefore, if God chooses to bless us with a spouse, beautiful children or just a unique spirit to love, it should not become confusing.  If it is, then something is wrong and probably you are out of purpose.

Talk to a Godly friend or a Godly person. Ask for help with this.

Holding a long lasting perception of someone due to their past is not biblical and therefore is contrary to what Jesus Christ wants from us as the church.  The focus should not be looking at the person’s past but, however be focused on genuinely seeing the good in everyone through the eyes of Jesus Christ. Our time must be spent walking in forgiveness and his truth for us and for others.
Do not hold grudges against anyone because of how God blesses them.  We do not know their struggles. God Almighty is in control and we are not in a position to question what God does. Get in the habit of truly enjoying what God is doing for someone else. Be happy for people.  It is Christ-like!

Spend some time is prayer and ask God for help if you struggle in this area.

It is difficult to try to walk in someone else’s shoe and do not understand the burdens they endure. Stop judging! At times, we can be so cruel that even if we have to destroy lives of even the innocent, we could not care less, because we want to achieve our own selfish desires.

Remember there is a God and he will repay us for the things we do.

Let check our motives; see if they are Godly… If they are not, stop and repent. Love, be kind, gentle and caring. Walk in the fruit of the spirit.

Try it today!

The Most Joyful Day in my Life

My daughter and I were home alone after a very eventful day of ministry. Every day in my quite time I would pray for God to save my daughter at an early age. I would declare the peace and favor of God over her life.  I would pray for her to be a blessing and that her life will lead others to Christ. Well, the perfect opportunity aroused earlier, she asked Mommy what will happen if I die today?

At first I was startled; I wondered a bit why she is asking the question?  If you know my little girl you would know that she is very mature for her age.  Therefore, I knew I could have “the salvation” conversation with her. I said well, if you die without accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior you would go to hell. On the other hand, if you accept Him into your heart, you would go to heaven. She replied so I must accept Him, if I want to go to heaven. I said yes dear.

We talked about what it means to invite Christ into her heart and the difference it makes to acknowledge that we as human beings cannot save ourselves. She thought about the conversation for a while and then she said I need to accept the Lord into my heart, Mommy can you please pray with me.

I prayed the sinner’s prayer with my daughter and oh my heart is overjoyed.  I told her she has to share the good news. What a blessing? What a day and what a beginning to a new week. God answers another prayer. Gardner and I, thank you Lord.

Keep Your Eyes on Jesus


In our journey on this narrow road we will come across road blocks in many different shapes and colors. Let us be encouraged that Jesus has already gone before us and made the crooked path straight. Thus what we see before us is nothing but a camouflage. However, if we take our eyes off Jesus for a second and lose our foot hole, let us not worry but look up to the hill (Jesus Christ) from where our help comes from. And don’t even worry about the few minutes we think we lost during that time we took our eyes off Him. As one writer puts it “time as we know it, presents no boundaries to the One who created it”, just continue where you left off, smile!

Let us continue to encourage each other on this journey and we pray that God will bring to our remembrance always that we are our brother’s keeper. Let us continue to pray for each other around the globe, seek God and pursue Him and have Him direct us as to how we should pray and for whom.

And let us not be too quick to judge but instead to overcome evil with LOVE.

Please Forgive Me


 

Romans 6:23 (KJV) “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Perhaps you are feeling somewhat down and feeling like you have failed God so much that there is no point in continuing with the relationship. What price have you paid for sin? None, yes, Jesus paid all our debts for us.

Remember God does not want us to live in guilt and condemnation. Embrace Christ for healing and hope.  Trust in God for tomorrow.  In faith, begin to ask for your healing and forgiveness today. Just a gentle reminder Romans 6:23 (KJV) “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Dear Lord, please help me not to live in condemnation but to take full advantage of your forgiveness through Grace and Mercy. I confess my sins to you and I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Help me to walk in this truth today, “All my sins are washed away, all washed away.” Thank You Lord.
