Fear No evil

Fear No Evil

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

Are you walking through a dark valley right now in your life? Are you fearful or anxious about your future? We don’t have to be because God told us he would never leave or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6) Because God has not given us a Spirit of fear but one of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7) So whatever struggle you are facing against, say I will Fear No Evil, because God is with you. And if God be for us who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)

You may say then, how can God be with me? Why does he feel so far away? But Jesus taught us that God would send a Comforter and he will stay with you forever (John 14:16) That comforter is the Holy Spirit, the power of the living God, the same power that rose Christ from the dead is living inside you (Romans 8:11)

There will be trials and tribulations, however God blesses those who perseveres under trial, having stood the test, that person will receive the Crown of Life (James 1:12)  So don’t walk through your dark valleys defeated, remember God has commanded us to Be Strong and Courageous for God will be with us wherever we go (Joshua 1:9) in Jesus Name Amen

Nothing

Nothing Can Separate Us

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:38-39

Is there anything that can separate you from God? For God has chosen us to be his children (John 15:16), and even when we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8) and he loved us enough to sacrifice his only begotten Son (John 3:16)

So even though we didn’t deserve his grace and mercy, God gave it to us anyway, why because he loves us. So what could separate us from our Heavenly Father? Sin (Isaiah 59:2) Sin is a rebellion against God (1 John 3:4) So when we knowingly and continually sin,  we are declaring war on God

However, because God loves us, he gave us the grace and mercy through the blood of Jesus Christ to forgive us of our sins. (John 3:16) The blood of the Lamb took our transgressions and made us white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18)

Satan will continually try to separate you from God, through his traps of sin. (2 Timothy 2:26) However if we fix our eyes and mind on Christ (Hebrews 12:2), we can avoid his traps through Christ who gives us strength.  (Philippians 4:13)

Because the blood of Jesus Christ is more powerful than anything in the world (1 Peter 1:19), and has overcome the world,(John 16:33) we can’t be separated because of the power of Jesus Christ Amen

Good News

Good News!

Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. Acts 8:30

Do you have trouble understanding the Bible?  The disciple Philip came across and Ethiopian man who was reading the book of Isaiah, but didn’t fully understand it. The Holy Spirit led Philip to talk to the man and explain the scriptures were about the prophecy of Jesus Christ.

Do you ever feel led to talk to someone about Jesus? You’re probably being led by the Holy Spirit, there are many people out there searching and looking for answers about our Lord and Savior

“How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Acts 8:31

The man is looking for someone to explain the scriptures to him, and God led Philip right to him. How do you seek wisdom and knowledge of God? When you don’t understand the scriptures, who do you turn to? It’s important we turn to God for the answers and pray for the wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit, as he promised us.

Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus. Acts 8:35

Many people view the Bible in a negative light, but “The Good News” is exactly what it is. Regardless of the struggles and obstacles we may face, we always have hope and salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ! That is Good News and everybody needs to know about it. For everyone who calls upon

Yeshua (Jesus)our Messiah (Christ) shall be saved Amen!

Let Go and Let God

Is there something giving you unease or anxiety today? Have you been praying about it but not receiving any answers or peace? Chances are, for those of us who pray, you either have gone through a similar situation, or are going through one right now. So, I have an experiment for you today: hold something in your hand…something you hold regularly, like your phone, TV remote, wallet, etc,…something you are used to having in your hand…and ask someone to take it from you. But here is the interesting part…don’t let go of it. Observe the reaction of the intended recipient. I tried it two times, on two different people, and the reaction was for the most part the same. They said to me, I can’t take it, you won’t let it go! They seemed perplexed by my request. After all, why would you ask someone to take something from you if you intend to hold on to it? The bible says “Do not let your hearts be troubled, but put your trust in God: (John 14:1). Therefore, my experiment is one of faith. You can SAY you have faith in God, that you trust him to help you, but if you are praying incessantly for something with no results, all while still letting the situation or illness burden your heart and your mind, you must ask yourself, are you really giving it to God, or are  you still holding onto it? Because letting go is a demonstration of your faith. You are not showing God true faith and reverence if you keep holding tight to something while asking him to take it from you. The bible says: “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” (Matthew 17:20). Therefore, I implore you today, to try a different experiment. What do you have to lose except the worry and anxiety you have been carrying? Ask God again to take the burden from you BUT, truly give it to Him…all of it! Demonstrate your faith by putting it out of your mind, the same way you would, if say, you had a bill overdue, and you finally put the check in the mail. Release it to Him and watch what happens. You will surely see that all your request was lacking was a little faith. Have a blessed day!

King

King of Kings

On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords. Revelation 19:16

Is Jesus the King of your life? Is he your Lord and Savior?  Many people remember Jesus for his sacrifice he gave us on the cross, but also remember Jesus is the King of All Kings, all power and authority over Heaven and Earth has been given to him by God  ( Matthew 28:18)

One day he will return again, and every eye will see him, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord (Philippians 2:10-11) This just goes to show you how great Gods love is for us, that Jesus would lower himself below the angels (Hebrews 2:9) to become our ransom for the debt of our sins (1 Timothy 2:6)

Just as prophesied all the nations and governments will rest on his shoulders Gods kingdom will have no end (Isaiah 9:6-7) We will have victory through Jesus Christ, as he will sit on the throne at the right hand of God (Revelation 3:21)

So as servants of Jesus Christ we humbly await his return, The Great Day of The Lord, where justice, peace, and love will reign forevermore. Where there will be no more sorrow, pain or death  (Revelation 21:4), for Jesus has overcome death, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords Amen

Thank God

Thank God

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Do you give thanks to God every day for everything you have? Many times in life we feel disappointed or feel overlooked by God because we don’t recognize the blessings already in our life. Remember all good things come from God (James 1:17) so if you have anything good in your life then thank him. Whether that would be your marriage, your children, your health, or your profession in all things we need to give the glory to God (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Its important to remember these blessings or victories in our life, because when we go through trials or tribulations (James 1:12), we know our God always gives us victory as he has done in the past.  Just as with the nation of Israel , whenever they felt like God had forgotten about them, he reminded them of his blessings and victories he had already given them . Such as he freed them slavery (Exodus 6:6), parted the Red Sea (Exodus 14:21) and delivered them bread from heaven (Exodus 16:4)

So whatever battle or struggle you are faced against, remind your enemy Satan about your victories God has already delivered you (Psalm 77:11) and remind Satan of his future (Revelation 20:10) Because we have victory through Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57)who has already overcome the world. (John 16:33) Give Thanks to God in Jesus Name Amen

struggle

Our Struggle

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12

Are you struggling today? Do you know what or who your battle is against? All of us struggle, but the important thing is to know our enemy, and our enemy is Satan (1 Peter 5:8) for he looks to devour you like a Lion.

You see Satan has setup traps for you (Psalm 141:9), addictions of the flesh, alcohol, drugs, pornography, violence, they are all traps by Satan to enslave you (John 8:34) until you break those chains , you can never be free from your struggles.

But the good news is Jesus has defeated death and Satan at the cross, (1 Corinthians 15:55-57) through Jesus the slavery of sin has been broken (Galatians 4:7) and you can be victorious though Christ (Romans 8:37)

See you are in a spiritual warfare, not a physical warfare. You can’t defeat your enemy without the power of God, the same power that rose Jesus from the dead can live inside of you (Romans 8:11)

Greater is he (Jesus) living inside of us that he (Satan) who is living in the world (1 John 4:4) We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength (Philippians 4:13)

So are how are you fighting your struggles today? Are you trying to do it alone? Or are you calling upon the name of Jesus, because everyone who calls upon the name of The Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13) in Jesus name Amen

understand

Do You Understand?

Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” John 13:7

Why would Jesus, King of Kings, God in the Flesh, wash the feet of his own disciples? Why would the one who has all power and authority over Heaven and Earth, lower himself to a servant? Jesus was leading by example. He showed us what pure love and humility truly is. Unless we deny ourselves, hence get over ourselves, we can never truly be a disciple of Christ

Just as Jesus did at the cross, nobody realized what he was doing, but they understood later. He lowered himself below the angels, to sacrifice and serve us, to redeem the human race.

“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” John 13:8

Peters reaction is probably the same we would have. If you were face to face with Jesus, you would probably bow down out of respect. But instead Jesus washed your feet, why would the Son of God do this? Because God loves you enough he wants to save you

Unless we accept Jesus sacrifice at the cross, his washing of our sins, we will have no part of God. We can only be saved by royal blood of Jesus Christ. So look at the washing of his disciple’s feet as symbolic to Jesus washing away your sins. The greatest love was displayed at the cross in Jesus Name Amen
