Life is a GIFT, you need to listen up...

 This is perhaps the BEST single message about Christ that you could listen to. Thank God in Heaven that we don't have to earn Salvation and Forgiveness, otherwise No one would ever wind up there.

He never asks from us what He didn't already sacrifice for us! Truth is, once you discover His peace and guidance over your life, you will find such blissful joy! It's immeasurable. He continues to open our eyes, to reveal truth, to impart wisdom, to encourage us, reward us for faithfulness. Not because He has to, BUT because He loves us. He gives to us so much more than what we need and never gives to us what we deserve, He gives us something far better! He gave to us what we never deserved or earned. Eternal peace, a promise of a second life and a guarantee that He will make good on!

 If there is anyone you know, in your life, next to yourself of course, who gives endlessly to anyone or anything, you now know they have the potential to be a faithful servant of Christ. If there is anyone you know, who is being controlled by anything other than a desire to be right with God, they need to see this.

WE all need to self check from time to time. What is it that we put before Our precious Savior? Whatever it is, I pray for all of our sakes that it is dispensable and abruptly amended. Why wait or waste one minute of life, not basking in the Glory of His goodness, His favor and His mercy! Truly, that position and that approach is anything but Heaven on Earth!

I never want to have the regret that I didn't show the Lord How grateful and pleased I am to serve! I pray and endeavor to always be fully immersed, engulfed and overjoyed in His presence! Father forgive me for those moments when I forget why I am here! Help me to reveal You to more and more souls so that Heaven is full and the devil is left flat, with nothing and no one!

I trust the Lord with all of my heart that when He says, You and Your whole household shall be saved that this encompasses all those souls whom God has brought into your life, that you have witnessed to, verbally and in the conduct of our actions, for a reason, a season or be it a lifetime, they are given that opportunity to choose the Lord. I had the unfortunate occasion to hear of a long time friend's untimely and tragic passing the other day! It rocked my inner circle of friends pretty hard. I pray that God grants all of our friends, acquaintances and especially the family  , the Peace that surpasses all understanding. I wish to remind them, that a fair and just God sits on the throne, He is the only one who gets to judge a persons heart and maintains the Authority to forgive and restore His creation as He sees fit.  To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I trust that my friend is now safely in the Harbor of Heaven and enjoying the splendor of a God that sees our weakness and our short comings as no more. Live on happily in Heaven!

Our life here is merely a stepping stone onward to what is lasting and what matters. Make it count!

Share this with everyone YOU know. God will do the rest!

God Bless

A small medium at large, it's no joke, it's divination! 1-18-16

There is a very influential and demonic force that preys upon people in their pain and ignorance.
Everyone is touched by some sort of untimely goodbye, of a family member or friend. Many people have struggled with the same personal issues for years and years, seeking some answer or understanding. Many people seek an advantage over life and think that they can consult these see'rs as a means to gain that pre-emptive information. These people are the ones in pain, the ones who suffer from ignorance because they are unaware of several factors. The enemy loves to take advantage of this vulnerability in particular.

The enemy loves to mix truth with wickedness, hoping that we will be so mesmerized by the decoy that we won't discover the element of fowl play. How does this relate to this topic?! Because people who believe they are receiving  messages" and "information" from the beyond, are usually not incorrect. The source of their information is not good, and it is not of God, Life isn't meant to be lived this way, otherwise, we would have been born with a database drive full of videos, explaining to us everything relavent that happened before we arrived and everything relevant to us after the fact. They very well may be receiving thoughts, images, impulses and information BUT it isn't from those departed individuals. It's from the Prince of the air, satan himself.

If someone planted a hidden camera in your house and was later able to describe and give accountings of your activities, would you trust them, pay them, and seek their advice?! No, you would want to punch them in the face, report them and have them permanently removed from your life! A psychic, medium or any other name they call themselves by, are no different. They are receivers of information that was gained by no good means. Remember this one thing, the devil knows the truth, he just seeks to distort it, he knows scripture and he knows that if he can get you believe, to put your trust and faith in this method, he is in effect dragging you into damnation and violation of Gods law!

Fact is, there are many good people who believe these abilities they have are good or that they can offer a redeeming qualification because they will use them to benefit others. Nothing more false could ever be conceived. Its not a gift it's a curse of epic proportions. To participate in this activity, on either side, is wrong and goes against Gods orders. It's one of the most vile sins that one can pursue.

If you are seeking closure on a past relationship or problem ask God to show You the truth, so that you will know. After all, that is what you are seeking, Peace & truth and love. Connections with all those things that meant & mean so much to you!

If you are involved in this, in any way, shape or form. You must stop immediately! You have to repent, ask God for His forgiveness and break the curses off your life. This includes, horoscopes, psychics, tarot, mediums, clairvoyants, spiritists, seances.oija boards, stones, amulets, potions, witchcraft, anything like that.

Isaiah 41:10 His Hand 1-11-16

 Let's have an in depth look at this verse...sometimes, there is little room for improvement or interpretation. Let the spirit speak to you as you read this and the following commentary.

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

Mathew Henry's commentary on this...

Verses 10-20 The scope of these verses is to silence the fears, and encourage the faith, of the servants of God in their distresses. Perhaps it is intended, in the first place, for the support of God’s Israel, in captivity; but all that faithfully serve God through patience and comfort of this scripture may have hope. And it is addressed to Israel as a single person, that it might the more easily and readily be accommodated and applied by every Israelite indeed to himself. That is a word of caution, counsel, and comfort, which is so often repeated, Fear thou not; and again (v. 13), Fear not; and (v. 14), "Fear not, thou worm Jacob; fear not the threatenings of the enemy, doubt not the promise of thy God; fear not that thou shalt perish in thy affliction or that the promise of thy deliverance shall fail.’’ It is against the mind of God that his people should be a timorous people. For the suppressing of fear he assures them,I. That they may depend upon his presence with them as their God, and a God all-sufficient for them in the worst of times. Observe with what tenderness God speaks, and how willing he is to let the heirs of promise know the immutability of his counsel, and how desirous to make them easy: "Fear thou not, for I am with thee, not only within call, but present with thee; be not dismayed at the power of those that are against thee, for I am thy God, and engaged for thee. Art thou weak? I will strengthen thee. Art thou destitute of friends? I will help thee in the time of need. Art thou ready to sink, ready to fall? I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness, that right hand which is full of righteousness, in dispensing rewards and punishments,’’ Ps. 48:10 . And again (v. 13) it is promised, 1. That God will strengthen their hands, that is, will help them: "I will hold thy right hand, go hand in hand with thee’’ (so some): he will take us by the hand as our guide, to lead us in our way, will help us up when we are fallen or prevent our falls; when we are weak he will hold us up-wavering, he will fix us-trembling, he will encourage us, and so hold us by the right hand, Ps. 73:23 . That he will silence their fears: Saying unto thee, Fear not. He has said it again and again in his word, and has there provided sovereign antidotes against fear: but he will go further; he will by his Spirit say it to their hearts, and make them to hear it, and so will help them.II. That though their enemies be now very formidable, insolent, and severe, yet the day is coming when God will reckon with them and they shall triumph over them. There are those that are incensed against God’s people, that strive with them (v. 11), that war against them (v. 12), that hate them, that seek their ruin, and are continually picking quarrels with them. But let not God’s people be incensed at them, nor strive with them, nor render evil for evil; but wait God’s time, and believe, 1. That they shall be convinced of the folly, at least, if not of the sin of striving with God’s people; and, finding it to no purpose, they shall be ashamed and confounded, which might bring them to repentance, but will rather fill them with rage. That they shall be quite ruined and undone (v. 11): They shall be as nothing before the justice and power of God. When God comes to deal with his proud enemies he makes nothing of them. Or they shall be brought to nothing, shall be as if they had never been. This is repeated (v. 12): They shall be as nothing and as a thing of nought, or as that which is gone and has failed. Those that were formidable shall become despicable; those that fancied they could do any thing shall be able to bring nothing to pass; those that made a figure in the world, and a mighty noise, shall become mere ciphers and be buried in silence. They shall perish, not only be nothing, but be miserable: Thou shalt seek them, shalt enquire what has become of them, that they do not appear as usual, but thou shalt not find them as David, Ps. 37:36 . I sought him, but he could not be found. III. That they themselves should become a terror to those who were now a terror to them, and victory should turn on their side, v. 14-16

Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."

Isaiah 41:13
For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Isaiah 44:2
This is what the LORD says-- he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid, Jacob, my servant, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.

Isaiah 43:5
Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.

Psalm 46:1,2,7,11 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble…

The Place of Power 1/4/16

There is a pervasive threat that goes unaddressed, it's more insidious than covered contamination, deadlier than toxic spillage, more lethal than accidental ingestion. It's facing the enemy without proper protection. Many aren't even aware that they are doing this. Some aren't aware that the enemy exists and others fail to see the true enemy because he hides behind the manipulations and effects that he causes in those who are weak and unprotected.

The cheating spouse, the criminal, the drug addict, the thief, the hostile belligerent individual. There are many of them, they come in all forms, all situations and conflicts. Essentially, though they are all victims of this same enemy. They are decoys. Affected by the enemy and used to be effective pawns.

That's where the Spirit of the Lord and His wisdom tears down the facade, the charade begins to unravel and the enemy quakes in his boots. The scriptures, the very word of God and His promises to us, carefully exhort us on how to safe guard our hearts, homes and health. Everything that is important to us and more importantly, everyone that is important to us. This is what the enemy hopes we won't turn to. AS long as he can keep you fighting each other, the true source (which is him) is never dealt with.

Most people have no problem wanting to protect their friends and family, maybe even a few benevolent strangers. But how do you feel about your enemies?! What makes you think they are your enemies?! They aren't. They are human, flesh and blood, stained sinners (just as you and I are) all falling under the same category. Some are saved and some are not. How much more so should the saved be aware of their blessings, their grace?! We ought to be praying for them, recognizing that these ones, are the byproduct of the enemies interference. Many of whom stand in the face of great peril.

Want to move mountains, command the storms, influence the outcome?! Get out of the way. Your greatest ammunition does not come from your own stock pile. It comes from a heavenly dispensation that isn't initiated until you forfeit your position and allow God to step in. He is our Battle Chief, commander and sovereign reigning authority.

If you didn't know it by now, this entire message was inspired by the movie, "The War Room", but the movie was inspired by everyday life, the battle, the casualties, the lessons and the plan for victory. I highly suggest that if you have not seen it that you quickly do so.

You wouldn't swim in a tainted lake, drink poison or drive over a sabotaged why face another minute of this most precious life, living in dangerous ignorance?! Pray or pay! When we pray, as submitted, repentant believers, we fall under the margin of Jesus having paid the price for us. When we choose not to, we assume the burden that we can never make good on, no good will ever come from that.

Find your quiet place, a room, a closet, a box...dedicate this as your place to commune with your commander and chief, The Lord. This is your Place of Power. This is where you escape to let out your frustrations, get encouragement, seek reminders, to meditate & pray. You will not regret having done this, merely regret waiting so long to have done so.

Have a Blessed week. I know you will!

Psalm 91King James Version (KJV)

91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Psalm 138:7  Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.

1John 5:19 We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

1Peter 2:9  But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Isaiah 54:17   no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD and their vindication from me, declares the LORD.”

Psalm 46:1  God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Psalm 91:1-3   He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”  For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.

Psalm 121:7-8   The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. 8 The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.
