Masking the pain and addictions

When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. (Psalms 27:10 KJV)

When others give up, God will never abandon you. He never fails.Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5, 6 KJV)

He will deliver you from every hurt,  oppression, depression and every pain and  pressure of life.

Trust God. It’s super simple… Just trust God. He will deliver you from every heart pain, oppression, depression and every pressure of life. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as 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 temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV)

Now unto Him, that is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. (Jude 1:24, 25 KJV)

Thank you Father for I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens me!

No matter how you attempt to dress up your problem with fig leaves, your underlying core condition remains the same, your soul has a void and is in need of a Savior. Addiction is a carnal attempt to mask a spiritual problem. Whatever the struggle, stronghold or addiction that has you bound and enslaved to its power, Christ wants to set you free; forever. He wants to become Lord over your entire heart. He wants to fill that void and barren place with His Love. Trust Him. His Love is stronger than your addiction or pain

How We Overcome your, and addictions

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 KJV)

The Word of God crushes every stronghold and defeats every enemy. When you are in Christ, addiction and its false masks of security, have no place or power in Him. Your body, soul, and spirit belong to God. No matter the addiction, that tries to warp its identity around your soul, God’s Word will sever its entanglement.

Declaration prayer 1Father, I thank you for releasing me from the power and entanglement of pain and addiction.

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. (Galatians 5:1 KJV)

In Christ, you are no longer a slave to sin. Jesus has set you FREE

Addiction is a yoke of bondage, an enslavement that holds you, hostage. It’s an entanglement that wraps itself around your very soul and hijacks your identity. In Christ, you are no longer a slave to sin. Nor are you a servant to its power or chokehold. Your body belongs to Him. You are His treasure, He has paid for you with His Blood. He has set You free.

Declaration prayer 2I am forgiven and free from every bondage, struggle, and stronghold. The Blood of Jesus washes me, covers me and cleanses me from all unrighteousness. Today I am made whole in God.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. (Isaiah 10:27 KJV)

Jesus Christ is The Anointing

Those who are in Christ, have been given authority by God Himself to enforce His Word and power to command the enemy to flee. When you choose to accept Christ, every stronghold and struggle must loose its grip and it’s condemning power from off of your life. When you are in Christ, He has given you the power to resist the devil, and he will flee. It’s up to you to embrace His Word and trust His promises. The power of sin no longer has it’s death grip on you when you choose Christ and not to serve your flesh. “Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV)

Declaration prayer 3Ask God, to remove your old appetite and taste, and create in you a clean heart, His Heart. Ask God, to allow you to feel how He feels about sin. Ask God, to give you an appetite to read His Word and to discover what He cares about. Draw closer to Him and He will draw closer to you.

If the Son, therefore, shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. (John 8:36 KJV)

When you are in Christ, you are no longer identified by the stain of sin, you are identified by His Love and engrafted into His Heart. You are His child. Choose your identifier. Whether you choose to be identified with sin and serve the former master or live Freely in Christ with liberty and power to be called a son of God, it’s your choice. It’s truly your choice. Step into the new life and Trust Christ. Accept your freedom. Reject condemnation. Choose Christ. You have freedom in Him.

Declaration prayer 4Father God, In The Name of Jesus, I thank you for your undying Love towards me. Lord, I know that I am new to You. Your Love has set me free. Your Blood washes me, cleanses me and makes me whole. I have no lack in You.

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, (Hebrews 12:1 KJV)

Free from worry!

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 my souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30
God doesn’t want you to worry about anything. God wants you to enjoy His
peace every minute of the day as long as you live. He wants you to possess His
peace and learn how not to worry. God is ready to teach you this truth today.
To help you understand the nature of worry, think for a moment about the areas
of your life that cause you to worry. They are the things in your own personal life that

you love or care about — your family, your children, your business, circumstances,
people around you, friends, church. You may read in the newspaper about
someone in another state who killed his children. You may shake your head and
say, “That is too bad,” but you don’t worry about it because it seems so far away.
However, when something happens in your own home, you begin to worry. You have
to love someone in order to worry about that person.
So, why do you worry? Because you fail to give something or someone to God. You
try to carry the load of life on your own strength, but you are not big enough to do
so. God has made provision to help you. He wants to carry it for you. But, if you don’t
give it to God, He will let you go ahead and carry it. The result is that you will be beaten
down into the ground because you can’t carry all the problems that come your way.
You need to forget them. Take your prob- Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

lems and give them to God in their entirety. When you give them to Him, He does away
with them very quickly. The problems that y o u try to handle on
your own become the mountains in your life. If y o u try to handle them, they get bigger
and bigger and bigger. And the valleys get deeper and deeper.
Give your problems to God. He will mash the mountains down. He will reach
down and pull the valleys up. The light of God can shine across your problem, and
only then can you see clearly. God doesn’t have any valleys. There is nothing unsuccessful about Him. He never changes, and the Bible never changes. The only reason we have valleys is because we don’t trust God — we don’t give our problems to Him. Many people don’t turn their problems over to God because they don’t know how.
They want to figure them out and do their own thing.

What I have experienced in life is that when you Pray and I say ” Lord YOU understand my circumstances and I trust you” Every time I say Lord I trust you is as if I put my worries behind me and leave it entirely up to God.  This way I can see how God moves in my life as I leave it up to Him by saying

“Lord I Trust you!!!!”

The Gospel is the power of God

The Gospel is the most basic, foundational message of the New Testament, yet it’s the most misunderstood. Today’s religious system is not preaching the same Gospel that Paul did. They mix it with the Law, and that isn’t the Gospel at all.

The book of Romans was written to explain the Gospel so that anybody could understand it. Paul, the writer, made it so simple that you’d have to have somebody help you to misunderstand it. And, unfortunately, we’ve had a lot of help!

Paul started off with this statement in Romans 1:16:

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

That is a radical statement. This word “gospel” in the original Greek is a word that was seldom used at the time this was written. Nobody talked this way, because the word literally means nearly-too-good-to-be-true news. It referred to news that was so awesome, nothing really justified using it. Nothing was nearly too good to be true.

But Paul said he was not ashamed of the Gospel. Why? “For it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” The Gospel is the power of God, and that’s talking about grace. Acts 20:24 and Galatians 1:6 both use the terms “gospel” and “grace” interchangeably. It’s saying that when you understand the Gospel, or the grace of God, it’ll release the power of God into your life. That’s huge!

The next verse in Romans 1 says,

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Notice that righteousness is not revealed from Law to Law, from good deed to good deed—it’s revealed from faith to faith. Here’s a good piece of information to consider: Sin won’t stop the power of God for salvation in your life but trusting in your own good works will. That’s what “the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith” means. You receive the righteousness of God by grace through faith (Eph. 2:8)! God won’t withdraw His power because of sin in your life. That’s why it’s nearly-too-good-to-be-true news.

When you talk like this, people with a religious mindset immediately say, “Well, what about sin? This sounds like you’re just giving people a license to sin.” Not so! Last I checked, people were sinning without a license! I’m not advocating sin. But, see, this is the immediate reaction when you start talking about righteousness by faith. They think you need to make people aware of their sin and the wrath of God.

But that’s why Paul said in the next verses,

For the wrath of God is [already] revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; [19] Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

We aren’t called to convict people of their sin but to convince them that the only way they can obtain righteousness, or right standing, with God is through putting faith in what Jesus did for them, not through something they’ve done. That’s why I spend so much of my time on this, and it’s what many of my teaching materials are devoted to.

It takes a supernatural revelation by the Holy Spirit to be able to understand this. But once you do, it’ll transform the way that you view God, the way that you relate to God, and the way that you receive from God. The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation. I encourage you to just humble yourself and ask God for a supernatural revelation of this truth. It’s tremendous.

He is Alive! Jesus of Nazareth is alive!

Christ is Alive!
“He is Alive! He is Alive! Jesus of Nazareth is alive!”
Women were the first to see Jesus of Nazareth alive after his death by crucifixion. Early on the first Easter morning they arrived at the tomb to continue the embalming process used by the Jewish people of the first century. They found the tomb empty and ran to tell the disciples of Jesus. The plain truth is no one would believe that Jesus was alive until he saw Him with his own eyes. No one was expecting Him to be alive. They went expecting to find a dead man, a corpse, in the tomb.
“Jesus first appeared to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons.” When she recognized Jesus she reached out and grabbed Him. Jesus said to Mary, “Stop clinging to Me; for I have not ascended to the Father; but go and tell My brethren, and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God” (John 20:11–17). She went and announced it to the disciples saying, “I
have seen the Lord” (v. 18). Mary ran and told the disciples and “they refused to believe it” (Mark 16:9–
11). “These words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them” (Luke 24:11).
Jesus greeted other women who had arrived soon after Mary Magdalene. “And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshipped Him.” Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and take word to My brethren to leave for Galilee, and there they shall see Me” (Matthew 28:9–10).
Late in the afternoon two of the disciples were walking to the town of Emaus discussing the events of the weekend. Their hopes were dashed to pieces because of the death of Jesus. A stranger joined them as they walked. They invited Him in for a meal. As Jesus broke the bread and blessed it “their eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight.” They hurried back to Jerusalem and went to
the house where the eleven disciples were staying and told them their experience how they recognized Him. The disciples also told them, “The Lord has really risen, and has appeared to Simon.”
While the two travelers were relating the story how they recognized Him in the breaking the bread, “Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, ‘Peace with you.'” “He showed them both His hands and His side” (John 20:19–20). They were “startled and frightened.” Jesus said, “See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.”
Jesus showed them His hands and His feet. They gave Him a piece of boiled fish and He took it and ate it in their sight (Luke 24:33–43).
Another disciple Thomas was not present that night. He refused to believe until he saw the feet and the hands of his crucified Lord. “Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” With that attitude, Jesus let Thomas wait eight days. “After eight days again His disciples were inside a closed room, and Thomas with them.

Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst, and said, ‘Peace be with you.’ Then He said to Thomas, ‘Reach here your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand, and put it into My side; and be not unbelieving, but believing.’ Thomas answered and said to Him, My Lord and my God!'”
(John 20:24–29).

There was an occasion when all of the disciples were fishing on the Sea of Tiberias. Jesus after He was risen from the dead appeared one morning and taught the disciples (John 21).
On separate occasions, Jesus appeared to Peter, to His half brother James, and to more than 500 people at one time, most who were still alive when Paul wrote his letter to the Corinthians. Paul then says that he saw the resurrected body of Jesus when Jesus appeared to him on the road to Damascus. Paul saw a real resurrected and glorified body. In Galilee Jesus again appeared to the eleven, “and when they saw Him, they worshipped Him.” Jesus then commissioned them to be His witnesses to all nations. “And after He said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.” They were gazing intently into the sky while He was departing.

R. W. Dale, pastor of Carr’s Chapel in London, while studying these great passages of Scripture rose from his desk and began to pace back and forth in his study shouting out loud, “He’s alive! He’s alive! Jesus is alive! O, I want my people to know He is alive!”
For forty days, Jesus demonstrated Himself alive in Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem. Ten days later something astounding happened in an upper room in Jerusalem not far from the Temple. There was a sound like a violent, rushing wind that filled the house. There was no wind. It was just the sound like a tornado that they heard. Tongues like fire were distributing itself on them and resting on each one of them.

The Holy Spirit filled them and they spoke spontaneously in other languages they had never learned. The sound brought people in Jerusalem out into the streets. The people heard the 120 speaking in their native dialects the mighty deeds of God (Acts 2). Some of the rabble mocked them thinking they had drank too much sweet wine. Then Peter stood and preached his greatest sermon. He explained that what was happening was the fulfillment of the prophecy of the Hebrew prophet Joel. Then he told them about Jesus.
GOD APPROVED THE LIFE OF JESUS (2:22)

Jesus was a man “approved of God.”

With boldness Peter says, “Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know” (Acts 2:22).
If what Peter said that day was not true, his listeners would have been ready to contradict and correct him. They would have put him to shame if he were not able to prove what he said.
He tells us about Jesus of Nazareth. He was a real man. He was not a superman, nor a phantom. He was a normal man, authenticated and approved by God to be what God wanted in man.

God authenticated Jesus by performing through Him “miracles, wonders and signs.”
Journey through the Gospels and you see Jesus changing water to wine, saying “Peace be still” and calming the winds and the waves on a lake. You see Him multiplying loaves of bread and fish and feeding 5,000 men. Watch Him casting out demons and raising the dead. God was at work in Jesus authenticating
Him. The word “attested” (NASB), or “accredited,” (NIV), “approved” in the KJV suggest the idea of demonstration, appointment, accreditation.

Jesus did these things by the power of God that resided in Him. Jesus is God

Here is God at work in Him.

Warriors, stay focused on Jesus

Philippians 2:10 “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow of the things in heaven and things in  earth and things under the earth”.

It is important for Christian Warriors to remain focused on Jesus, even though the devil sends all kinds of distractions to cause us to lose focus. We must rebuke the devil and hold fast to Christ.  When problems arise on the job, or in the home, many times we forget the ONE to whom we should turn. We often forget  that Jesus is the “burden bearer”,  “the solid rock” , “the refuge in time of trouble”.  Sometimes  we become so overwhelmed with the circumstances that surround us, we forget the  One who can deliver us from all problems, hurt and harm.  In the midst of all of the storms of life, in the face of adversity and  problems, we must stay focused on Jesus in order to be at peace on this earth and make heaven our home.

The name of Jesus is powerful and worthy to be praised. The name of Jesus is to be exalted above all names by those who believe that he is the “Christ the son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16).  When we read Acts 4:12, we can clearly understand the importance of the name of Jesus, “…for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”.

As Christian warriors, we must stay focused on the fact that Jesus is “the first and the last, the beginning and the end, the Alpha and Omega”.  If we believe that He is the Christ, we will have no problem proclaiming His name and submitting to His will.   Our talk will reflect that we know Jesus.  Our actions will reflect that we are walking with the Savior and that HE is the center of our lives. If we stand for Christ now, he will stand for us in the judgment. He will take our burdens and make them HIS.

Being a Warrior is not easy and it was never promised to be easy.  We are told in 2 Timothy 3:12 “”Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution”.  Even when faced with problems that are not of our own making, we should hold fast to the Lord, trusting in His word and expecting a deliverance from the situation.  We must rest on the scripture that says, “…no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11).  If there is something that we want and we are denied that request, as Christians we, must believe that it was not the Will of God for the request to be granted because he could be saving us from something or saving us for something else.  Still our faith must be grounded and rooted in the Lord.

Jesus  Warriors must remember that our purpose for being here is to (1) prepare us to live eternally with God (2) try to influence others to live a Christian life and (3) be examples to the world.  Remaining focused on Christ and doing His Will, ensures that we can be with HIM in eternity.  Though the world is unfocused and yields to the many distractions of life, Christian warrior must remain focused on the true source of life and power – Jesus Christ

Rejoice in the Lord always!

Living a life of praise is not only the most enjoyable way to live, but it’s also one of the most powerful ways to change your life. Praise isn’t like the caboose that just follows what happens, but it’s more like the engine of a train that makes things happen. Your faith isn’t complete without praise. Colossians 2:7 says that you abound in faith with thanksgiving. No thanksgiving equals not abounding in faith.

Praise affects you, it affects the devil, and it affects God. It touches everything and every part of your life. Likewise, a lack of praise affects you in a negative way, turns the devil loose in your life, and doesn’t bless God. You have to get this area of your life right.

Nearly everyone agrees that praise is good, but very few feel any responsibility to praise God when they don’t feel like it. I don’t know anyone who wakes up in the morning and plans on being depressed. They would like to be happy and praise God, but they don’t feel they have any control over this. They think that praise is just a response to what happens and that if everything goes right, they will automatically do it. That is definitely not the case.

The Lord told His disciples the night before His crucifixion not to let their hearts be troubled (John 14:1). This wasn’t a suggestion. It was a command. Yet most Christians today would think this was insensitive and unreasonable. They would say that Jesus wasn’t being understanding and compassionate.

These disciples were about to see Jesus arrested and then flee in fear for their lives. They would see Jesus unjustly condemned and then crucified and buried. And He was telling them not to let their hearts be troubled! To the average person, that’s unreasonable.

Jesus ended His discourse to His disciples that evening with a promise that they would have trouble (John 16:33). Wow! What an understatement! Yet He said to be of good cheer. How was this possible? He said it was possible because He had overcome the world.

At the time Jesus said that, He hadn’t been crucified, much less resurrected and seated at the Father’s right hand. It was because of faith that the disciples were supposed to rejoice. He had promised that He would be resurrected and then reign, and if they were in faith, they would rejoice—and so would we.

We live in a negative world, a fallen world where it seems that the ungodly are getting more and more prominent. So much of what we hear is just negative, and we have to make a deliberate effort to be positive and counter the culture we live in. Praise is a great tool to help us achieve that.

If someone were to pass out, the first thing we’d do is check their pulse to see if their heart is still beating. In the same sense, checking our praise lives is how we check our spiritual pulse. If we don’t live lives that are constantly giving thanksgiving and praise unto God, we are not spiritually healthy. Some people may take offense at that, thinking I just don’t know their situations. But Paul said in Philippians 4:4—

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

We may not feel joyful, but Scripture tells us in Galatians 5:22 that the fruit of the Spirit is joy. If we have the Holy Spirit, we have joy. We may not feel that joy, but we can choose to lift our hands and speak forth praise to God by faith. Learning to praise God even when everything is going badly will change our hearts, make us much more effective, and cause our faith to abound.

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

The word for almond is Shakeid, which comes from a root that means to watch or wake. The almond tree is the among the first trees to awaken from its winter sleep. We therefore eat almonds on Tu Bshvat to celebrate the return of spring. In the scriptures there is a play on words regarding the use of almond and gods watchfulness.

Almond in Hebrew means “the awakening one”, because the almond tree was the first tree to awake from the sleep of winter and blossom. It spoke of the speedy and powerful result of light.$_57

 And the word of the Lord came to me saying Jeremiah what do you see and I said I see an almond branch than the Lord said to me you seen well for I am watching over my word to perform it.

The second source of almonds in the Tabernacle is Aaron’s staff which sprouted overnight while in front of the Ark of the Testimony (Covenant) in the Tent of Meeting (Numbers 17: 1 – 11).

The blooming branch of an almond tree is breathtakingly beautiful so much so that the Lord decorated the Menorah with oil cups in the shape of almond blossom.

Just as God exclusively chose Aaron to minister before Him, so Yeshua was the exclusively chosen to be the greater High priest of the New Covenant. Regarding his priesthood after the order of MalkiTzedek.

Yeshua alone is Adonai Tzidkeny, The lord our Righteousness

This is a message of the holy of holies, in other words this is a message of message it is an instruction of instruction. The most important God wants you to know is this everything you do is to bring glory to the centre chef of Jesus Chris. Whatever blessing you get is to bring glory to Jesus Chris. Your marriage is to bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Your career if you don’t focus on the Lord Jesus Christ it becomes empty it is a feeling of frustration, you were created for better things you need to bring glory to the lord center chef.

The lamp stand in the Tabernacle of Moses represent our Lord Jesus Chris let me explain how the 6 Branches of the lamp stand brings light to the centre chef. As we look at the golden manora, the 6 are all pointing to the centre. Every church every ministry true test it is whether it brings glory honor to our Lord Jesus Chris. Revelation 1 :12-13 John saw this revelation in heaven.lampstand

The manora. Its primary purpose was to give light in front of it. It was to shine on the table of shewbread and never to be put out. It was never to stop shining. This was a constant reminder that God was with His people. The Bible says that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. When the apostle John said, “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it,” he was referring to Jesus coming into the world. Jesus made the world and created life and came to bring Gods life to fallen man but since man is in darkness apart from Jesus they could not comprehend the light that comes with the life of God. The golden lamp stand illuminated the shewbread and so God illuminates His people

Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me, And having turned I saw seven golden lamp stands, And in the midst of the seven lamp stand One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment son to the feet and girded about the chest with golden band. The lamp stand represents the churches of revelation and what our Jesus is saying is that He is in the centre of the churches.

Jesus says in the Greek he is the Alfa and the Omega, He has the first word and the last word.

Your doctor says something it doesn’t matter because Jesus has the last word; He has the first word and the last word. Whatever you do you do it to the glory of God

The Spirit of God illuminates the dark mind of man to the knowledge of God and to spiritual life. John went on to say, “That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” Man is blind apart from Jesus.

 Man cannot know God apart from Jesus. Even if God were to come Himself to His very home, man is incapable of perceiving any spiritual light because the darkness has made him blind. The golden lamp stand speaks of Jesus as the light of the world.

Jn 9:5 “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

God is in it with you!

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Do you feel misunderstood and forsaken by the people you love? Have you been falsely accused and stripped of everything, without a dime to your name? Maybe today, you feel that you have hit rock bottom and you wonder if you can ever rise again.

Sometimes it feels like pain has pushed you past your breaking point. One of the bible history stories that give me hope again is the story of Joseph.

Joseph, who was sold by his brothers into slavery (Genesis 37:28), went through all these experiences and emotions. Still, he was conscious that God was in it with him every step of the way. Though his life was a “mess”, (does this sound familiar?)  he believed that it was not an accident. Though the things that were happening to him were not good, he believed that God was making all things work together for his good. And it was indeed so—Joseph eventually rose to occupy the most powerful position in Egypt, second only to Pharaoh. (Genesis 41:40)

Probably, this consciousness that God was in it with him was the reason he forgave his brothers when he met them again later in his life. Joseph told them, “But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life.” (Genesis 45:5)

So like Joseph, whatever you are facing now, be conscious that God is in it with you. Be Jesus-conscious. When you focus on Him, He will focus on your situation.  Though you may have nothing or not much now in the natural, the truth is that you have everything when you have Jesus!

The same Jesus who went around blessing others with 12 baskets full of leftovers, a net-breaking, boat-sinking load of fishes, and who never impoverished anybody, will empower you to succeed in life. The same Jesus who went about doing good will cause good to explode in your life. The same Jesus who went about healing the sick and never giving anyone sickness will keep you in divine health and protect you from harm.

The same Spirit who raised our Savoir from a borrowed grave is alive and active in you.

Dear reader “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), as He was with Joseph, He is with you right now. And He will empower you to live the high life—the abundant life in which you will see God’s promises manifest!

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is with you, He will never forsake you nor leave you. We need to trust God no matter what situation you find yourself.

I urge you to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you, He is our helper and is always willing  to help.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

 

 

Burning Hearts!

Let’s say thank you to the one who gave His life to us. Jesus has risen from the dead and He is here with us right now. We welcome your presents Lord.

All the scripture is inspired of God but not all scripture is the Gospel, we need to take the water of the word and turn it into wine. Everything in the Old Testament points to ONE, our Lord Jesus. Right after God gave the Ten Commandments God gave a statute and the statute is on a born servant.  Right after Exodus 20 The 10 commandments, Exodus 21 is of a born servant. When a man comes to his seven year he is allowed to go free, but if he loves his master and he choose to remain as a servant he will remain forever in that household.

In Exodus 21 He talks about this born servant, verse2: if thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go free for nothing. The born servant is nothing more than our Lord Jesus. He came from Heaven manifested in the flesh lived among us and He had a choice He could go back without us He could go free, but because He loves His Master because He loves His Father and because He loves you, He went to the Cross. Jesus represents the servant and Jesus wants to serve you, He wants to wash your feet, He wants to heal you.

This is the Gospel, when Jesus rose from the dead he walked with the two disciples they were depressed they were discourage they were on their way to their hometown away from Jerusalem. (Trip to Emmaus) A divine stranger joining there conversation and says “what is this that you are both talking to each other and are sad?” They said “don’t you know what happened this few days? Are you a stranger in town?” The bible says that the Lord restrained their eyes form seeing who He was. (Luke24:14)

I always thought to myself Lord Jesus why would you not just let it all out? Why did Jesus restrain their eyes? Then Jesus said unto them “O fools and slow of hearts to believe” …..this is the two incitements against the church. We are ignorant or if we know about Him, we are so slow to believe. At the end of the journey when He left them they realized who He was and said to one another “did not our hearts burn within us? While he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

A ministry that unveils Jesus Christ and Minister Christ to the people will have burning hearts, did not our hearts burn?

And then like this the Lord opened my eyes why he restrained their eyes to give us all equal opportunity if they saw Him in the flesh and knew who he was and then thy would knew He is in heaven. No Jesus wanted them to see Him in the scriptures first, that gives us all equal opportunity if we can see Jesus in the scriptures that are the cure to foolishness and slow heart. Even the dispels knew that He was opening the scripture to them The Old Testament they are scripture but not the gospel we need to turn it into the gospel and bring Christ out of it! So that we can have a burning hearts.
