Who Are You

April 6, 2016

That’s really the question God was asking Israel when he said in (Hosea 7:8) “Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.” Ephraim (Israel) didn’t know who they wanted to worship, whether God or idols. They had a mixture of idolatry and the worship of Jehovah and that’s never pleasing to God. Thus, they were a cake not turned and a cake not turned is good for nothing. It is not edible because it’s burned on one side and doughy on the other side, therefore it needs to be thrown out. And the truth is, many so called Christians are that way, they don’t know who they serve; some days they want to serve Jehovah and other days they want to serve idols, including themselves. Who are you? Are you a cake not turned or are you the real deal, because if you are the real deal, at least two will have to agree, God in heaven and Satan in hell, because Satan won’t have a real Christian in hell and God can’t do nothing but accept a real one in heaven.

The Lord desires to bring us up before He brings us out

February 1, 2016

Joshua 24:17 says “For the Lord our God, he it is that (brought us up and our fathers out) of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed.”

The Lord desires to bring man up to his level of thinking and up to his level of living before he brings you out of your trouble. In various places throughout the OT you see this phrase “Brought us up and our fathers out” and the truth is if God brought you out of your trouble before he could bring you up to a level where you have a real relationship with him, you would find yourself right back in the same situation. How many times have we said to God, God if you get me out of this situation I promise I won’t go back, only to find yourself right back in the hole that you said you wouldn’t go back to. Hence, God needs to truly bring you up (where you can see your situation through the eyes of the Holy Spirit) before he can bring you out with success that will be long lasting and not a temporary thrill.

God Bless You

All Things New

January 5, 2016

(Rev. 21:5) says “And he that sat upon the throne said, behold. I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”

There is no doubt that if you want to be new in 2016 you can be. If you don’t want to make the same old New Year’s resolutions only to break them before month’s end, there is a way to walk in that newness to the degree that it becomes a part of who you are. Let me challenge you to trust God because he has the ability to make all things new, including you, if that’s what you want. But you have to desire the change and you have to desire the change agent, Jesus Christ, even more if you really plan to be different.  Too many of us declare and decree that our change is coming only to find ourselves in the same state or even worst by the end of the year. He said He makes “all things new” and you can trust it because he also said “these words are faithful and true.”

God Bless You

Overcomers

November 2, 2015

To overcome is to get the better of in a struggle or conflict. It also means to conquer. And the Christian life is full of overcoming moments and we must embrace those moments because they come to increase our faith and bring us into a closer relationship with God.  (1 John 4:4) says “you are of God little children and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” Thus, for the Christian, God has already declared you a winner, He has already declared you to be the victor for he spoke in past tense when he said “ye are of God little children and HAVE OVERCOME. However, do you believe you have already overcome even before the battle has begun? This is where our faith must arise. Only believe!

God Bless You
