Love One Another

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12

Gods commands us to Love one another as Christ has loved us. How did Jesus love us? He loved us enough to lay down his life for us. Do you love your neighbor enough to do that? Most of us won’t even say hello to our neighbor let alone lay down our life for them.

Why do we resist to love others? Because there is nothing in it for me? They hurt me? It’s easy for us to come up with reasons for hate but it’s not easy to Love one Another as God has commanded us.

(John 15:13) “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

The worlds view on Love are “feeling” people feel like there in love. But true love is much deeper than a feeling it’s action. When somebody truly loves you they will take care of you when you’re sick, lift you up when everyone pushes you down, stand by your side thru thick and thin.

No greater love was displayed than Jesus laid down his life for us at the Cross. You can question God on many things but you can’t question whether he loves you, there is no greater love than Jesus.

(Mark 12:30-31) “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

When Jesus was asked what are the greatest commandments , he answered Love God with all your heart and Love your Neighbor as yourself. Are you getting the pattern? Love , Love, Love..

Hatred is unacceptable to God and those who claim to be Christians and still hate are false and really don’t know God. Hatred is a cancer that will consume you and everyone around you, it will destroy live and not prosper them. I ask that we call unto Jesus to fill our hearts and souls to Love One Another as Jesus loved us Amen

Breath of Life

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.  Genesis 2:7

Life and Death, when does it begin and end? What separates us from the physical and spiritual world? The world believes life begins at conception but we know life begins when God breathes into us.  The “Breath of Life” comes from God. Life begins when God says it begins.

The Hebrew meaning for the word Spirit means Breathe also, so when we say God breathed on us, he’s sending us his Spirit.  No matter what happens to our physical body, our Spirit can’t be separated from God.

(Job 33:4) “The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”

Job was in a dark place, Satan had taken everything away from him including his family, but Job didn’t understand what was going on and assumed God was punishing him. Then a young man named Elihu, was filled with the Holy Spirit, and revealed this truth to Job.

Thru the “Breath of Life” God gives us life, no life can be giving without the Spirit of God. Man will continue to try and replicate life but all life comes from God.

(Acts 17:25) “And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.”

When Paul was teaching the Gospel of Jesus he came under heavy opposition, but Paul basically told them God doesn’t need our approval. He is the giver of life, God is the Breath of Life.

The world wants to debate Gods existence or the validity of Jesus Christ, God doesn’t need to prove anything. He spun stars and galaxies into space. He created the heavens and The Earth, and he created us from the dust and breathed life into us.

(Revelations 11:11) “But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.”

During the Tribulation, The 2 Prophets of God who will be killed by Satan will then be resurrected by God. Notice is says “ The Breath of Life” entered into them.

This world we spend a lot of time trying to maintain our physical bodies to sustain life, but are you focusing on your Spiritual life? God gives us the “Breath of Life” and we can only sustain that thru our Lord Jesus Christ Amen

Palm Sunday

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Zechariah 9:9

Palm Sunday is the celebration of Jesus entering Jerusalem as our King fulfilling the prophecy from Zechariah. Notice Jesus decided to ride a donkey instead of a horse, this was to show his humility and he is the “Prince of Peace”, many Jews were hoping for Jesus to wage war against Rome but God had a different plan.

During his arrival, everyone laid down palm branches, what did this symbolize? The palm branch in Roman culture symbolized victory. However the Palm branch was symbolic in Egyptian culture to symbolize eternal life. Both meanings are very fitting for Palm Sunday

(Matthew 21:9) “And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest”

Hosanna means “Please deliver us” or “I beg you to save”. Everyone was desperately waiting for coming of our Messiah; Jesus fulfilled the promise and prophesies. This is part of what makes Palm Sunday so special and spiritual.

(Psalm 118:26) “Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

This is the Psalm the people sang while Jesus entered Jerusalem, everyone knew Jesus was the Son of God, the Messiah promised from the Old Testament scriptures.

So this Palm Sunday remember Jesus is coming again soon, lets rejoice and sing in anticipation of our Messiahs return in Jesus name Amen

WE are ONE

Unashamed of Jesus

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

With all the racial tensions in the world today it’s important that we understand we are all One. We are all made in the image of God, we are all One Race, and we are all one thru Jesus Christ.

(Galatians 3:28) “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

How can we all be made in the same image if we all look different? This is because of “Adaptation”

Adaptation– any alteration in the structure or function of an organism or any of its parts that results from natural selection and by which the organism becomes better fitted to survive and multiply in its environment.

Worthy is The Lamb

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1

Your past was long time ago yet it keeps haunting you every day, but the good news is you’re free from the slavery of your sins thru the blood of the Lamb. You ask how can this be? By Jesus sacrifice on the cross he took the punishment for your sins.

Don’t live every day in shame of your past; you have been transformed by Christ. You old self has passed away, and you were reborn in the blood. It’s time to rejoice for your chains have been broken.

(Leviticus 17:11) “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood thatmaketh an atonement for the soul.”

In order to understand why Jesus had to be sacrificed  on the cross, you need to understand the act of Atonement from the Old Testament.  To be cleansed of your sin before Jesus you needed to sacrifice  animals, but why did God require this?

The reason God wanted man to understand the seriousness of our sins. The wages of sin are death and separation from God. So the only way to redeem themselves for there sins, was to sacrifice an innocent life in their place.

(2 Corinthians 5:21) “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Jesus knew no sin and took our sins for us so we can be redeemed. He was the sacrificial lamb who was slain for you and me. Now that you understand this, you understand how much he loves you. He took the punishment for your sins, worthy is the Lamb.

(Revelations 5:12) Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

By the blood of the Lamb, we are redeemed, we are blessed, we are not condemned anymore. The chains of sin have been broken, sin and death have no hold on us anymore.

Worth is the Lamb , he is worthy of all our praise. Jesus has giving everything to you, it’s time for you to give everything to him also in Jesus name Amen

Lying Vanities

They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. Jonah 2:8

God had a mission for Jonah, to save the city of Nineveh, but originally he refused and decided to go his own way.  But God works in mysterious ways and used a Whale to change Jonah’s mind.  How many of us try to create our own destiny, only to be thrown overboard like Jonah was? But if we put our trust in God and not “lying vanities” we won’t be forsaken, we will be fulfilled by completing our destiny

(Ecclesiastes 1:2-4) “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun? One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.”

We go about our daily lives in the “Rat Race” running around trying to complete this and complete that, but when you take step back what is it all for? Don’t waste your life following “Lying Vanities” follow God and his plan for your life.

Our goal here in life should be to prepare people for eternity in Heaven. The only way to get there is thru Jesus. If we waste our time chasing after objects, there useless, and won’t save your life.

(Job 15:31) “Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.”

Trust not in “Lying Vanities” but trust in God, your creator. Many people believe “vanities” such as money have power, security, and freedom. But money will not save your soul only lose it. Don’t be deceived by the world, you need God.

(Psalm 31:6) “I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.”

How much does God hate idolatry?  Very much because our God is a jealous God (Exodus 34:14) Think of it this way, you’re a parent, your child who you love, decided to ignore you and follow someone else. Doesn’t that make you feel good as a parent? This is the same way God feels toward you, he wants you to love him because he loved you enough to give you life.

Its easy to get caught up in following “Lying Vanities” of this world, but don’t risk forsaking your own mercy, we worship an awesome God and he loves you. Follow him and fulfill your destiny in Jesus name Amen

A New Worilds

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:6

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000478005/article/exsteelers-lb-jason-worilds-shockingly-retires

With all the negativity the NFL has received over the past few years, here is one good story that has emerged. And no it’s not about Tim Tebow or Russell Wilson, his name is Jason Worilds. Although he might not be a household name, he has raised eye brows across the entire NFL and beyond.

Jason was scheduled to be a free agent this year, and was expected to get at least a guaranteed 10 million dollars, but he decided to retire at age 27 in the prime of his career to devout his time to his faith. Jason has become a Jehovah Witness and plans on dedicating his time to his denomination.

(Galatians 3:28) “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Just for the record, I’m not a Jehovah Witness and I don’t agree with all there interpretations of the scriptures; however we are all brothers and sisters thru Jesus, so I support him and his fellow witnesses.

How many of us would be willing to walk away from millions of dollars to serve God? Might sound easy to do but if we are being honest in that situation probably would be a hard decision. I have a lot of respect for Jason’s dedication to serve God and walk away from the riches of this world.

(1 Corinthians 10:31) “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Most of us work a secular job, isn’t it harder to do everything for the glory of God when you’re working for corrupted corporations? To serve God truly without interference of this world is a dream come true.

Of course there will be many scoffers in the world that will criticize Jason’s decision and call him a fool. But in the end we are the ones who will have to stand before Jesus on judgment day, all the riches of the world won’t save you only Jesus. I praise Jasons decision and hope that many more including myself can take this bold leap of faith and server our Lord in Jesus name Amen.

More of You, Less of Me

He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30

John the Baptist, prophet who was born to pave the way for the coming of Jesus. A relentless preacher who warned people to confess their sins and baptize them in the Holy Spirit. But the day John baptized Jesus and the confirmation from God that Jesus is the true Messiah changed everything

John realized his ministry must exalt Jesus and not ourselves. How many modern day preachers keep exalting themselves? They post a scripture and print there face on it..Book signings glorifying there writings when there all based off the Word of God.

(Matthew 3:16-17) And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

God confirmed to John and all his followers, Jesus is the Son of God. This moment really kicked off Jesus ministry. At one moment we see the Trinity all come together. But notice even though Jesus is the Messiah he allowed John to baptize him. He is the Lamb of God, great show of true humility.

As John the Baptist said in (John 1:27)” He is the one who’s shoe latches I’m not worthy to unloose”  We must remember to exalt Jesus Christ because he is the King of King and Lord of Lords

(Isaiah 52:13) “See, my servant will act wisely; he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

As Isaiah prophesied Jesus was seen to the world as a servant, the poor carpenter boy, but really he was God in the flesh who came to redeem us all. The world knew him not.

Is Jesus the center of your life? Are you exalting him or doe you exalt yourself?

(Philippians 2:9) “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,”

Jesus is the name above all names, sitting at the right hand of God, there is no other higher than him. He is the only begotten Son and nobody gets thru the Father without him.

Therefor we must increase Jesus Christ and decrease ourselves. The world needs to hear the good news of the gospel and not our own agendas. I pray we all increase and exalt our Lord Jesus Christ Amen.

God of Miracles

You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.  Psalm 77:14

http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/toddler-survives-drowning-101-minutes-cpr-29759995

Last week in Pennsylvania, a 22 month boy was found face down in a creek, they performed CPR on him for almost 2 hours. When he arrived at the hospital he still didn’t have a pulse, and then instantly the boy came back to life. Medical doctors and experts have no explanation, there is only one explanation God performed a miracle that day.

The nonbelievers will try to create an explanation, but even I know, permanent brain damage begins after only 4 minutes without oxygen. This boy went almost 2 hours. The boy made a full recovery, no brain damage, no side effect. How do you explain this?

(Psalm 139:16) “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

God said all our days are written in his book, he knows when our life begins and ends. To the world this boys life was over, but God still had plans for him. It’s not over till God says its over.

Many people will scoff at my faith, but until you can show me a logical medical explanation why this boy is not only alive, but perfectly healthy, then show me. Because there is no answer but God.

(John 11:26) “and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

Lazareth was dead for four days until Jesus got to him. Before he raised him from the dead, he asked his sister Martha one question Do you believe this?

Do you believe God is in control? Do you believe God can save you? God allows miracles like this boy to confirm our faith, let this be a sign to you. Believe in God, all things are possible with him.

(Mark 10:27) “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

Nothing is impossible with God, raising this boy from the dead, stopping the sun, parting the Red Sea, he is the almighty creator.

Is your spiritual life dead? Do you have a pulse but no hope? Turn to the one true God, the King of King, believe and be changed forever in Jesus name Amen

Fight the Good Fight

Unashamed of Jesus

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses 1 Timothy 6:12
Satan wants you to believe your losing the battle, that all your struggles and obstacle you’re facing are going to destroy you. However the real truth is the war is already won.
As Jesus said “It is Finished” (John 19:30) During that moment Jesus not only conquered death but also defeated Satan. There is nothing he can do against you that we can’t overcome thru Jesus Christ.
From Revelations 20:10 we know Satan’s destiny “ And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
Victory is ours thru Jesus Christ, don’t believe the lies and deceit of…
