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

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!

Life Is A Gift

You only have just one chance at living. Make the best of it friends. Pick up from where you left off and run with passion. Live life to the fullest!
Have confidence in the good and wonderful blessings waiting ahead of you.
If only you know what lays ahead of you, you’ld start singing, and dancing where you are this moment.
No time to engage anyone or anything that do not add value to you but rather deplete your essence. Get busy living!

Today’s Words

Words of Comfort

Behold, God will not cast away the blameless, Nor will He uphold the evildoers.He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, And your lips with rejoicing.Those who hate you will be clothed with shame, And the dwelling place of the wicked will come to nothing.” Job 8:20‭-‬22 NKJV

Call For Repentance

God is wise in heart and mighty in strength. Who has hardened himself against Him and prospered? Job 9:4 NKJV


None! God is Sovereign! Repent therefore of all your sins!

You Are Loved! Believe This!

I don’t know why it is so difficult for you to believe God loves you! God loves everyone! He does! He loves the Democrats, the Republicans, the Muslims, the queers, the unbelievers, everybody! God loves the WORLD! Everyone in it!

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 1For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

When you and I accept this, when the WORLD accept this love, it would be easier to live a life worthy of this love. When you love someone, you do things to make that person happy, not hurt the person! So also is with the Lord. You will desire to please Him in all your ways!
Hebrews 3:12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.

If the world believes that he or she is loved, this is where transformation begins! What you come to believe God does not like drops off of you when you genuinely love the Lord. You will cry out to your maker to help you get rid of what you now know is filth and lies!

Will you accept God’s love today? While it is today, as you hear God’s voice reading this, harden not your heart!

Hebrews 3:15 As has just been said:“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.

Whoever believes in Christ Jesus is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

Do not reject the love of God. Open up your heart to faith!

Shalom!

Walk In The Spirit – Galatians 5:16

It takes a lot of discipline to seek the face of the Lord for direction and wait to be led by the Lord!

We often want to help God to achieve that which he placed upon our hearts by running ahead in our own power, even when God says rest, wait, and relax!

Our times are not His, this we all should know by now. When there’s delay in any area, it’s not always the devil or our enemies working against us. God is actually protecting us from undue stress and heartaches.

God is sovereign, He knows the end from the beginning. We must do ourselves favor by listening and following heavenly direction.

Wait on the Lord! Let Him direct and lead you!

Shalom!
