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!

Lies and Stupidity Is Not A Norm! Truth and Wisdom Is!

It is so unfortunate that when Godly wisdom, truth, diplomacy, love of God, others, and of Country is needed most in the World, the custodians of virtues- Religious Leaders had non handy. We seem to have gotten used to the rottenness all around and decency was far gone. Non existence!

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

James 3:16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

James 4:17 He who knows what is good and right to do, and does not do it, to that person, it is a sin. SIN!!!!!!!!!

If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

Kindness Is A Virtue

Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

One of the fruit of the spirit is kindness.

As a believer, transformed by the word of God. One of the evidence of your transformation is that you will begin to bear this fruit- Kindness. You either have it or not. You cannot fake it for it has a fragrance of it own.

Pray that Christ’s love, grace, and Word will take root downward in you and bear the fruit of kindness upwards in your heart.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

Be Onguard! Words Can Kill!

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? Covid 19 has revealed beyond a doubt the evil intention and wickedness of man, the thought of the heart, how murderous it can be.

Revelation 12:15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent.

We have seen and heard of those with slight provocation or even without any, intentionally spitting on the face of others, knowing fully well they could be spewing the virus on a more vulnerable person.

We have heard of victims that died as a result of such encounter with the new weapon of mass destruction, a killer, a super spreader, a carrier infected with Covid 19 spitting virus over them.

I wonder if you ever thought of people speaking evil into the lives of others as evil, killers of lives and destinies! The word of God says that life and death is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21.

Many on a whim spew out curses like rain, pouring out words from the deep seated wickedness, insecurity, pain and hurt in their soul on unsuspecting vessels. Matthew 12:35 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.

Others go around dropping venom on every surface, any ears that is accessible, for the detriment of many forgetting that we all will be judged by every careless and evil words we spew out. Matthew 12:36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.

Therefore, be careful of that which you feed your soul with as we prepare to walk into this new door of a new year that God in His infinite mercy is opening to and for you and I. Mark 4:24 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued.

Be watchful, stay awake, pay attention, stay conscious of what you hear! Does it bring fear? Doubt? Demean you? Exalt Satan and his agent over Christ Jesus? Does it exalt any human in place of God? Does it convict you of your sins? Does it encourages the good in you? Does it inspire you to live a life that is worthy of your precious salvation? Does it glorify mammon? Does it make excuses for your life of sin? The words you hear and feed yourself on friends, does it strip you of human dignity?

We need to remind ourselves that God spoke the world into being! Words are powerful! Any avenue from which words are spoken to demean, discourage, abuse, and degrade you as a human being is not of God.

The whole purpose of the devil is to strip you naked of the Radiance of God’s Glory, he want to strip you of your identity as a child of God so he can rule over you as god! Satan will take over your mind, your free will subtly with the words he speaks to you. He is a master manipulator, a liar and a good orator! Read the temptation of Jesus Christ in the Books of the Gospels. You must resist the devil and counter his lies with The Word of God today as in this new year!

Flee from every appearances of evil1 Thessalonians 5:22. Don’t feed your soul with poison! It will kill ya! Feed your soul with the word of truth. Read the Bible and books that build you up. Edify yourself and others with the scriptures this new year. It shall be well with you and all that is yours in Jesus name. Amen

Shalom!

Gossiping is Murder

Let each of us be honest here. We all have engaged in gossiping. But did you know how deadly it is? I be the first to say that I use to gossip, I never saw anything wrong with it. Until one day the Lord showed me just how deadly it is. Today I will share […]

Gossiping is Murder

Called Out! Chaos!

Job 14:15 You will call and I will answer you; you will long for the creature your hands have made.16 Surely then you will count my steps but not keep track of my sin. 17 My offenses will be sealed up in a bag; you will cover over my sin.

I bet you have not seen half of what Brother Job saw, and I pray you and I will never ever see it. He was tempted beyond human understanding, yet by grace he stood in faith, unwavering!

So therefore, if the Lord called Job back from the realm of total chaos as was recorded in the scriptures, God will call you out of that dunghill. I mean, He is calling you out now, this very moment.

The Lord remembered His love for you today, He has been watching over your every step anyways. God is not and will not keep track of your many sins. He packed them all and sealed it with the blood of Jesus Christ and sent it off to the land of forgetfulness.

Don’t you dare allow the enemy and those that are threatened by your wakefulness from slumber talk you down to the emotion of guilt, unworthiness, and fear.

You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus – 2 Corinthians 5:21! Say that to the Devil’s face!

Shalom!

Self Reflect! Is Your Heart Right?

Romans 2:12 All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. 13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. 14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.) 16 This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.

Is the requirements of the law written on your heart and mine? Does our conscience bear us witness? How about our thoughts? Do they accuse us or defend us? Mine goes to overdrive very often, however, communion with the Father of Spirit through His Word brings it into perspective for me.

These are questions we can ask ourselves truthfully. This is one of the reasons to examine ourselves to see if we are still in the faith for it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight but doers of The Word. “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?” 2 Corinthians 13:5

Photo by JESSICA TICOZZELLI on Pexels.com

We are only able to self reflect if we are matured enough to look at ourselves in the mirror without been afraid. Self reflection will help us identify areas that need to be worked upon. It helps us to consciously humble ourselves before our creator, to ask for help and and grace to overcome all and everything that is not serving the higher purpose of our being and calling.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble – 2 Peter 1:10.

Are you living the Word? Does your conscience bear you witness? For it is said that God’s spirit bears witness that we are His children – Romans 8:16. This same spirit will bear you witness that you are living right before God and man.

Shalom!

Hidden Truth

Truth supressed? Who are those responsible for such? Could there be some truth hidden in plain sight? Are there truth that you and I need to know?

Yes, there are truth that is suppressed. And we all are guilty of this. You only need to look within yourself, and look without to know so.

Being diplomatic, keeping peace at all cost sometimes is outright suppression of truth. No wonder our world is in tumult! Has always been! Yet God is not happy about it. Guess we all need to repent.

Photo by Magda Ehlers on Pexels.com

Not evangelizing is a suppression of truth for we know without Christ Jesus in a person’s life, their eternity will be spent in pain yet in order not to offend, we keep mute about telling them, with love of course.

Father, have mercy and help us all to propagate the truth we already know. To share your love and mercy to our world.

Romans 1:18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.

What truth about this God do you know? Are you sharing it with others? Or are you hoarding it? Merchandising it? Repent!

Thank you Lord for helping us to take this seriously and turn on a new leaf. Holy Spirit we welcome you to stir us on to share the Truth of the Father’s love to His children.

Shalom
