My Soul Shout! Hallelujah!

Happy New Month!

When I think of God’s goodness to me
How far His Spirit has brought me
What I have been shielded from
What I have passed through
And passing through

My many blessings
Oh how He has blessed me
With all that pertains to life
And godliness
Health, wealth, peace like a river

Stillness in the midst of chaos
Beauty for ashes

Constantly assuring me of His love
Daily affirmation
He has never left me and will not

Oh how beautiful this feeling
These butterflies within
My very soul shout hallelujah
Praising God for saving me

This is A testimony!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

It Is Discerned!

Only by discernment can one really see as the Lord want us to see.

Father, open thou the eyes of our understanding.

Many are in defense of what they know not

Many are working contrary to the WILL of God and knoweth it not

Father, in your mercy, guide us and lead us on the path of righteousness!

Many are being led astray by doctrines of demons arrayed in purple.

Lord let every deception in our minds be striped away by your WORD, BLOOD, and HOLY SPIRIT

Demetrius was not about Artemis, he was about his pocket and led many to rise up against the true God.

“”Most of them had no idea what was going on or why they were there.””

Give us understanding Lord!

“”But before he (Apostle Paul) got away, a huge ruckus occurred over what was now being referred to as “the Way.”

A certain silversmith, Demetrius, conducted a brisk trade in the manufacture of shrines to the goddess Artemis, employing a number of artisans in his business.

He rounded up his workers and others similarly employed and said, “Men, you well know that we have a good thing going here—and you’ve seen how Paul has barged in and discredited what we’re doing by telling people that there’s no such thing as a god made with hands.

A lot of people are going along with him, not only here in Ephesus but all through Asia province. “Not only is our little business in danger of falling apart, but the temple of our famous goddess Artemis will certainly end up a pile of rubble as her glorious reputation fades to nothing. And this is no mere local matter—the whole world worships our Artemis!”

That set them off in a frenzy. They ran into the street yelling, “Great Artemis of the Ephesians! Great Artemis of the Ephesians!” They put the whole city in an uproar, stampeding into the stadium, and grabbing two of Paul’s associates on the way, the Macedonians Gaius and Aristarchus. Paul wanted to go in, too, but the disciples wouldn’t let him.

Prominent religious leaders in the city who had become friendly to Paul concurred: “By no means go near that mob!” Some were yelling one thing, some another. Most of them had no idea what was going on or why they were there. Acts 19:23‭-‬34 MSG

I Charge You!! Pray!

So Peter was kept in prison, but fervent and persistent prayer for him was being made to God by the church. ACTS 12:5 AMP

It is sickening that the Church of this last days, do not pray for each other. How we have grown in the wrong direction baffles me.

These days, when we see brethren in bondage to sin, being persecuted, arrested by poverty, troubles, failures, and the likes, WE, the Church, Pastors and congregants alike point fingers, makes jest, insinuates demeaning remarks etcetera, about them.

We are charged by Christ to pray for each other, including those we perceive as enemies – James 5:16, Matthew 5:44

It’s even worst when snide remarks are heard from the pulpit!

Christians! Christ beloved and followers, please repent! We must start loving Christ genuinely by caring for His body, one another!

Just think about it friends! Will Jesus know a brother or Sister in need and not reach out to such?

Take a look around, how many people have you personally touched with kindness?

How many in your congregation, family, friends and acquitances have you shown kindness? Just being nice!!! I mean, this may be all that someone needs!

How about prayer? How many do you know struggling, arrested and in prison, enclosed about by poverty, lack, relationship woes, addiction, and the likes, have you earnestly prayed up?

This is what true Christianity is all about! Caring for one another enough to talk to the Father on their behalf positively.

I said positively because many would rather God takes some off the face of the earth so they can shine more, or covet what belongs to them.

Friends, I charge you in Christ name to pray for a brother or Sister you know or perceive may be going through an unpalatable situation.

Just do it and you’ll see how satisfying it is. Your Spirit man will confirm the heart of the Father and you will feel peace like never before.

Try it! It is liberating!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Share The Good News!

Brethren, there is a group, there is a kind, there are people, that you have been specifically designed to reach, to bring the gospel of Salvation to!

Go out there today, and be led by the Holy Spirit to speak about the saving grace in Christ Jesus!!!

Go! Make disciples of all nation! Tell the good news!!

Many are waiting to hear, for their hearts have been prepared!

“”So then [since they were unaware of these developments] those who were scattered because of the persecution that occurred in connection with [the stoning of] Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, without telling the message [of salvation through Christ] to anyone except Jews.

But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who came to Antioch and began speaking to the Greeks as well, proclaiming [to them] the good news about the Lord Jesus.

And the hand (the power and presence) of the Lord was with them, and a great number who believed turned to the Lord [for salvation, accepting and drawing near to Jesus as Messiah and Savior].
ACTS 11:19‭-‬21 AMP

Be Encouraged! Striving For A Crown!

When you are striving for a crown, there is no room to waver. You must dig in your heel or else like Peter, you might sink. Matthew 14: 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Discouragement will definitely come from different avenues. The facts of life will buffet you with tempest, other forces will band together to wear you out, cause fear, all this is to weary you out, to take your eyes off your goal. 

1 Corinthians 9: 26 do not run like someone running aimlessly; do not fight like a boxer beating the air.

Stay committed till the end!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Just An Encounter!

Saul was zealous for religion! He almost missed the mark until he had an encounter, a personal relationship with the power of resurrection Himself – Christ Jesus! Acts 9

You “Saints”, Bishop, Pastor, Reverend, Preacher, Evangelist – Title holders, followers of “GO’s, Pew members in Churches, Temples, Synagogues, etcetera! Have you had an encounter with the Prince of Peace Himself?

Do you really know the Lord? Do you know who you are “WORKING” for? Do you know what drives your zeal?

Stop where you are and ask for an encounter with The Power of Resurrection Himself!

You sure will not remain thesame!

You cannot have an encounter and still be thesame! It’s impossible!

An encounter with Jesus Christ brings transformation.

Not only to your bank account, relationship with others, and so on, but much more in your heart!

You become a new being! Continuously being transformed – 2 Corinthians 5:17

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
