Understanding Birth Confidence

We must learn to read scriptures with understanding, by the help of the Holy Spirit of course.

It is this understanding that can help us to see that the words we read is meant for us. You and I will be able to appropriate scriptures to ourselves, our situation, and that of others and the world at large.

I am God’s little girl. My Father cares for me very much. Joan

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4

I, Joan, God’s little girl, I am from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in me is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4

An example of me reading 1 John 4:4 this way and meditating on it build up my inner man. Place your name where mine is and read it aloud. Repeat a couple of times. How do you feel?

When you read scriptures with understanding by the help of the Holy Spirit that gives understanding, you will begin to really have confidence in the one who saved you, Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Only powerful, All Knowing, All Seeing, All sufficient God!

Shalom

Burden, Confession, Healing

Confessions is tied to healings. It’s God’s word, God’s way! Obey!

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16

Is anyone still obeying this scriptures? Not so much I guess!

There are not many that can be trusted to keep confidential conversation secrets including ministers of the gospel! There’s so much lack of ethics and integrity in the institution! You end up hearing your matter from the pulpit!

Friends, May the Lord guide you to a godly burden bearer. It could be anyone, a total stranger could be what a friend of many years can’t be! Be led by the Spirit!

Shalom!

Glory To Glory With Grace

Glory to glory on a continuum

Transformation is an ongoing process! Yeilding to the Holy Spirit will allow the beholding as in a mirror, growth from glory to glory! You are in good hands!

2 Corinthians 3:18 And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

Shalom

Rebuilding Through The Word of God

Society needs to be rebuilt from God’s Word.

Excerpt from Dr Jonathan Murphy’s Sermon on
Rebuilding Through The Word – Nehemiah 8:1-12

Here we are taken back to basics. As believers we need the essentials from the book of life, the word of God to survive and to rebuild.

6 Essentials To Survive As A Believer

1. Believers must gather as one before God.  Our lives, families, society, and our world can only be rebuilt from the truth of God’s word. We must not forsake our gathering together like some do – Hebrews 10:25


2. Another essential is the need for God’s pulpit preaching Pastor. An expository preaching Pastor is required to rebuild the work of God in his people. The body of Christ need a slow cooking Pastor, cooked in the truth of the word of God

3. Believers must assemble and call for the book of the law of God. It means we should come expectant and demand to hear the truth from the book of God. We need to hold our Pastors accountable to bring forth the word of God. Enough of the merchandising, fables, and doctrines of man

4. As individuals, we must be attentive to the word of God. It is your responsibility to plough the soil of your heart to prepare to receive God’s truth. Your preparation will yield insight and transformation

5. You must then apply the word of God you have received in your life, which is your ministry. You must be doers of what you have heard from the word, only then can you be the Bible that the world will read and come to believe Christ is in your midst

Come out from amongst them and be ye separate

In order to effect a positive change in the world believers have to swim against the current – the political correctness, Idolatry, and all sort in our society demanding our conformity. We cannot be like the world, to change the world. We are in the world but not of the world.

You Will Shine Like Stars

When you have the assurance of salvation in your inward being, the word of God says such a person will shine like stars.

Just an encounter with the person of the Holy Spirit changes our countenance because God’s glory rubs off on us!

Read the account of the Samaritan woman in John 4. When she went back into the city to testify, she was glowing.

You cannot meet with the person of the Holy Spirit and remain the same! You must radiate the radiance of God’s glory! His beauty will permeate your being.

Daniel 12:3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. Amen

Defined And Known By Love

1 Corinthians 8:1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds upThose who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to knowBut whoever loves God is known by God.

This pretty much tells us about the nature of love if you can see it from this perspective. Your love for God makes you known to God. It makes you known to others too. For the scriptures says by their fruits ye shall know them! Matthew 7:16-27

Matthew 7:16-20 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

God knows who loves Him. We should also know who loves us. If a supposed representative of God bears no good fruits that you can see amongst all virtues then you must know such is not of God. Do not be deceived. False Christians abound! Don’t be one either!

There is chaos in Texas and a Senator thinks this is the time to go on vacation? What fruit is this folks?

Talk is cheep! Action speaks louder!

It is time Christians begin to look at the fruits a tree is bearing. Talk is cheep! Action speaks louder! But when words are backed up by action, good or bad, you will know who is on the Lords side! We must be intentional in doing good! And for all! Not a selected few!

In our individual lives, we must take stock and weed out every greed, bitterness of Spirit, negativity, selfishness, and egocentrism most especially. Jesus Christ is our model! Be Christlike!

The story of the good Samaritan should teach each and everyone of us valuable lessons. It does no matter if the needy got themselves into their predicament, our duty as Christ’s beloved is to help. In the last 11 months or thereabout, how many of your Church member did you check upon man of God? How many did you send word of encouragement to woman of God? Christians should care for one another!

Love builds up! Love God, love yourself, and love others like yourself!

Shalom!

Acceptable Worship Of God

Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Or worship any being. You must get rid of the idol in your life!

What is that thing/person that you regard, respect, and fear more than the living God? That is an idol! You cannot offer acceptable worship and praise to God with that idol before you. You must get rid of it! Cast down whatever exalt itself above Christ in your life.

You cannot serve both God and money. Or worship any being. You must get rid of the idol in your life! Then you will be able o offer acceptable praise unto the Lord!

2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.he

We must live by what we already know. Philippians 3:16

Love God, love other human beings like you love yourself. Be respectful and regard others as equal, not as less human! Only then can you really please God!

1 Peter 2:Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

Shalom!

Thoughts, Tongues And Words

The power of the tongue

When Christ love is in your heart, it will show in your words and deed. Receive grace to speak words that sustains the weary.

Proverbs 18:20 From the fruit of their mouth a person’s stomach is filled;with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied. 21 The tongue has the power of life and death,
 and those who love it will eat its fruit.

James 3:5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Speak God’s words and it shall be established. Speak words of affirmation and no condemnation. Evil words are viruses. Speak words seasoned with salt. Let the words of your mouth sustain the weary.

Psalms 19:14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Words fitly spoken are like apples of gold in pictures of silver – Proverbs 25:11

Shalom!

Life’s Test: Pain, Loss, Heartaches

When a man suffers misfortune, and loss, that is when you really know who your friends truly are. And how Christianly many speaks but do not act! Many will say very unkind words to you, treat you unkindly, gather others around them to speak more evil of you. And spread untruth about your situation!

Salt will be added to your injuries. This is the experience of brother Job, and many brothers and sisters even today.

Job 16:19 Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. 20 My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God;

“The very same God that spins things in orbit
Runs to the weary, the wern and the weak
And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken
They conquered death to bring me victory”

Test will come in life. Our faith, love and hope in the Lord will be tested! This is a guarantee, however my prayer for you is that you will not sin against God in your speech. Don’t lose faith!

Brother Job knew he was blameless, he could not understand why what happened to him happened, yet he had hope in God. But his friends? They were a whole lot different from what he expected. No word of encouragement or comfort but accusations.

This here sounds more like Job thinking, trying to justify what is happening to him, finding no cause, and must have blurted out Job 16:17 yet my hands have been free of violence and my prayer is pure. I mean Lord! You know me! Why all these?

Brothers and sisters suffering any kind of loss, heartaches, or contrariness of life. Please note that God is Sovereign, He knows what you are going through and He will give you respite.

I pray God’s strength be made manifest in your weakness. May His love envelope you. May the light of His countenance warm your heart. God is God on the mountain, as He is God on the valley, hills, plains, and rough places. He is Sovereign! And He cares for you!

Be comforted friends as brother Job was and said in Job 16:19 Even now your witness is in heaven; your advocate is on high. 20 your intercessor is your friend as you pour out your fears, heartaches and tears to God.

Shalom!
