God Provides

When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?” John 6:5

There was a crowd of about 5 thousand people there to listen to Jesus teachings. Jesus decided to test the faith of his disciples and asked them how are they going to feed all these people? By human logic it seemed impossible to supply everyones needs. But what Jesus wanted to teach them is to trust in The Lord and let God provide for all your needs.

“Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” John 6:9

God works in mysterious ways, when there doesn’t seem a way, he makes a way. Just like when Moses came to the Red Sea he parted it, heres a boy who only has 5 loaves and 2 fish to feed 5 thousand people.

 

Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish. John 6:11

Jesus took the 5 loaves and 2 fish and thanked God for what they had, God instantly blessed them with more food then they needed. Just as God sent manna from heaven to feed the Israelites , he will provide all our needs also, we just need to trust in him.

After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, “Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world.” John 6:14

After everyone saw this miracle, they all confirmed Jesus is the Son of God. However we should not be waiting for miracles to have faith in God. We need to remember God is our provider and not man, when you understand this principle you can live with peace knowing you are more valuable than many sparrows in Jesus Name Amen

Son of God Part 2

Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, John 5:22

Just as Jesus told us, nobody gets to the Father without going thru the Son. God has handed all power and authority to his only begotten Son Jesus. So if you reject Jesus, you are rejecting God. Therefor you are condemning yourself to death.

That all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him. John 5:23

If you don’t honor Jesus and his teachings, then you don’t honor God. For all Jesus teachings come from God. Jesus didn’t do anything to glorify himself, everything he did was to glorify God and to save us from our sins.

Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. John 5:24

Thru the blood of Jesus Christ, our sins are forgiven. This is the only way your sins can be forgiven. Only the innocent and unblemished blood of Christ can pay your debt. There is no other way to Heaven, as without Jesus you’re a unworthy to stand before our Heavenly Father

Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. John 5:25

But take heart Christians, for we worship the God of the living and not the dead. Jesus gives you eternal life. And there will be day of no more tears and sorrows, for the former things have passed away in Jesus Name Amen

Deliberately Sin

If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.  Hebrews 10:26-27

Thru the blood of Jesus he has set us free and redeemed us for our sins. However when you accept Christ, your old self also dies with Christ. Becoming a Christian is about transforming from your old sinful ways to a disciple of Christ. When we deliberately continue to sin after we received Jesus grace, we can expect the judgement of God upon us

Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Hebrews 10:28

In the book of Exodus The Laws handed down by God were very clear and concise. Anyone who broke certain laws could be put to death, and the blood was on your head not others. Why? Because we are all responsible and accountable for our actions. Sin equals death, its only thru the blood of Christ we can live forever.

How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? Hebrews 10:29

So every time you sin as a Christian, you are crucifying Jesus all over again. Your making a mockery of his sacrifice that he has giving to us all. Jesus said in Matthew 12:31 “Anyone who blasphemies against the Holy Spirit, will not be forgiven” Think about that, Jesus was willing to forgive all sin except this.

So brothers and sisters, strive to be holy, resist temptations and evil. Call upon the Lord to give you strength when you are in need, but don’t continue to live as your old self and expect Gods grace. Let Christ rule your heart and receive his eternal mercy in Jesus Name Amen

 

In Her Hands

Now Deborah, a prophet, the wife of Lappidoth, was leading Israel at that time. Judges 4:4

With many claiming that God and The Bible are male chauvinist, and oppressed woman, let me introduce you to the Prophetess Deborah. After the death of Joshua, the 4th Judge of Israel appointed by God was Deborah.

A God fearing woman who not only led the nation of Israel back to God but also lead them to victory in war because she had the favor of God

“Certainly I will go with you,” said Deborah. “But because of the course you are taking, the honor will not be yours, for the LORD will deliver Sisera into the hands of a woman.” So Deborah went with Barak to Kedesh. Judges 4:9

Make no mistake back in history woman were not treated equally by the world. They were usually oppressed or enslaved, so Deborah knew that this would add insult to injury to Sisera’s army.

All things are possible with God, doesn’t matter your gender, race, nationality, God has a plan for your life just like Deborah

Then Deborah said to Barak, “Go! This is the day the LORD has given Sisera into your hands. Has not the LORD gone ahead of you?” So Barak went down Mount Tabor, with ten thousand men following him. Judges 4:14

God was with Deborah and the nation of Israel. God didn’t discriminate against her because she was a woman, he created her. God judges by your heart, not by your appearance

 

Barak pursued the chariots and army as far as Harosheth Haggoyim, and all Sisera’s troops fell by the sword; not a man was left. Judges 4:16

Israel led by Deborah defeated all of Sisera’s army. If God didn’t love and respect woman, would he make Deborah the leader of Israel? Lean not on your own understanding and trust in The Lord with all your heart in Jesus Name Amen

Our High Priest

Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. Hebrews 3:1

Is Jesus Christ the high priest of your church? Your home? Of you? Don’t blindly follow manmade doctrine or lies created by this world. Follow Jesus, he is the Truth and the Truth shall set you free.

If your Church doesn’t have Christ as its cornerstone, get out of it. Build your life upon the Rock which is Jesus, all others will fail and be destroyed in the storm.

He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. Hebrews 3:2

Who was Jesus appointed by? None other than God, our Heavenly Father, Creator of the Heavens and The Earth. Jesus faithfully did the will of God, even when it was difficult. He sweated blood at the Garden of Gethsemane before he went to the cross, but Jesus finished the will of God and thru him we have Victory

Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. Hebrews 3:3

Moses was a great Man of God but Jesus is the only Begotten Son of God, there is a huge difference. All power and authority has been handed over to Jesus as his sits at the right hand of his Father. Jesus is the Messiah, the King of The Jews, not Moses

For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. Hebrews 3:4

We can’t do anything without God, he is the provider of all. All our blessings in our life come from him. The one who breathed life into us. Make Jesus your High Priest our your Church, Home, and You. There is no other, there is only way and its Jesus Christ Amen

Son of God

For this reason they tried all the more to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God. John 5:18

Ever since Jesus was born in the manger, the world has been trying to kill him. Why? Because Jesus has saved the world and defeated Satan at the cross.  And Satan wants you defeated also so he wants you to deny Christ. Follow the Truth,Life, and The Way, there is victory with Jesus thru his amazing Grace

Even today the world is trying to kill Jesus. Christians are being persecuted around the world, the symbol of thecross is banned in over 50 countries. But as Jesus said “It IS FINISHED” Jesus already defeated death and Satan, the war is already won thru Christ.

Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does John 5:19

Jesus didn’t come here to start a new religion, he came here so that you can have a personal relationship with God our Father. Everything Jesus did is the will of God, he paid the price for you and me.

For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed John 5:20

Jesus performed many miracles including raising the dead, but these miracles were not for his own glory but the glory of God. So the world might know who he is, but yet the world still rejected him after everything he has done and shown us.

For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. John 5:21

Jesus is the only way to eternal life, he gives life to the dead and condemned. We worship the Living God so if you want life follow Jesus. He is the Son of the living God, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end in Jesus Name Amen

 

Jesus Is Greater

He must become greater; I must become less.” John 3:30

Jesus is The King of Kings, Lord of Lords , and Name above all Names. Then why do most Christian Ministries exalt themselves instead of Jesus? He said in order to be his disciple we must deny ourselves, carry our cross, and follow him. Jesus didn’t say you needed a new book deal with your face on the cover or signing autographs of your new DVD series.

The problem with Christianity today is we have gotten away from Christ. Its become a Billion dollar industry were we exalt ourselves and make everyone feel good. True Christianity is about becoming a servant for Christ not ourselves. Until we learn to do this we can’t truly be his disciple.

The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. John 3:31

Jesus is above all, he is The Truth, Life and The Way nobody comes to God except thru him. The world needs to understand who Jesus really is, he was not just a prophet or a Saint. He is The Messiah, the only Begotten Son of God that was promised since the beginning of time from God.

He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. Whoever has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. John 3:32-33

Even though Jesus walked among us, the world never knew him. The Word became Flesh and yet the world decided they wanted to kill him because they loved there sin more than God. But everyone who has accepted him and call upon Jesus shall be saved.

The Fear of The Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom and Understanding, give your life to Jesus, make him the center of your life and follow him in Jesus Name Amen
