Love Endures Forever

For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:5

Do you feel like God has forgotten about you? Or do you feel that you screwed up your life so bad, God could never redeem you again? Take hope in the promise of God, that his love endures forever. We must remember that every day is a new day, Gods love is new every morning and his compassion never fails (Lamentations 3:23)

We must also remember that even though we were sinners, God still demonstrated his love for us by Christ dying for us (Romans 5:8) See God knows the beginning and the end (Isaiah 46:10) You may have fallen down but God knows you’re going to get back up and be victorious through him (1 Corinthians 15:57)

Remember Jesus came looking for his lost sheep (Luke 15:4) If your feeling lost today, know this that God is looking for you, he waiting to reconnect with you to bring you back home to your promise land Jesus didn’t come here to call the righteous but came here to call the sinners back to repentance (Luke 5:32)

The power of the blood of Christ, can break every chain and cleanse us from our sins ( 1 John 1:7) Because Jesus has overcame the world we can overcome also (John 16:33) So praise our Lord Jesus Christ and give thanks to God our Father for his love and mercy truly endures forever Amen

God Sent?

I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. Jeremiah 23:21

Are you following a false prophet or religion? Many people believe just because someone mentions God or the name of Jesus that they are trustworthy, but this not the case. For Jesus warned us there would be many false prophets that will deceive many (Matthew 24:24)

So how do you know who is true? God told us to test the spirits (1 John 4:1) Don’t believe every spirit because many false prophets have gone into the world. So how do we test a False Prophet? Simple does their doctrine or lifestyle match what God commanded in The Bible? For you will know a False Prophet by their fruits (Matthew 7:16)

Also just because someone quotes scriptures, doesn’t mean they are using them in context. Remember Satan used scriptures in the Bible to try and deceive Jesus (Matthew 4) But because Jesus knows the Truth, he was able to easily rebuke Satan’s claims. Do you know the Bible well enough to spot a False Prophet?

Remember the ultimate goal of a False Prophet is to distract you from Gods real plan, which is salvation through Jesus Christ. When you put yourself, money, and objects above God, remember Jesus taught nobody can serve two masters. You can’t serve God and Money (Matthew 6:24) which is why most religions and churches are corrupted.

So what is the Truth? Jesus is The Truth , The Life, and The Way nobody get to God except through him (John 14:6) If you want to follow truth , follow Jesus, and don’t follow manmade doctrines (Acts 5:29) Amen

 

Rest in Christ

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

How do you find rest? Where do you turn when you are weary and burdened?  This is one of the many gifts given to us by God through Jesus Christ. We are never alone, he will never leave us or forsake during the good and bad times (Deuteronomy 31:6)

God tells us those who hope in Jesus will renew their strength We will soar on wings like eagles, we will not grow weary or faint (Isaiah 40:31) Why is this? Because Jesus has overcome the world, therefor we can overcome the world also (John 16:33)

We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength (Philippians 4:13) Do you need strength today? Trust in Jesus, and we will give you strength.  Jesus is The Living Water and you will never thirst again (John 4:14) , don’t continue to struggle on your own, call upon Jesus and you shall be saved (Romans 10:13)

The important thing to remember is Jesus first said “Come to Me” and “Then I will give You rest” Matthew 11:28) We must first realize we need a savior, and that savior is Jesus Christ. (Luke 2:11) Once we accept him as our Lord and Savior, he will give us the peace of God (Philippians 4:7) in Jesus Name Amen

 

 

Our Fathers House

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1

At some point in all of our lives, regardless of what your faith or beliefs are, you will have to face our enemy death. Many times people don’t even think about God or the afterlife until a death occurs to someone close to them. But Jesus actually taught us about death and what to expect, right before he was going to be crucified for our sins

Jesus gives us the hope and reassurance by starting out “Don’t let your hearts be troubled” he knows the pain of death, as Jesus wept during the death of his friend Lazurus. But Jesus is telling us were going to be ok, if we believe in Christ as our Lord and Savior , we are saved through him

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? John 14:2

Jesus goes on to describe Heaven, in Gods house (Heaven) there are many room, which means God has prepared a place for us with him. As we know Jesus is living Word of God, the Truth, since he told us this we should expect this after death

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3

Next Jesus reveals not only did God prepare a place for us but Jesus himself will come back for us and take us to be with him. Isn’t that a comfort to know when we crossover to the other side our Lord will come get us and we won’t be alone

You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:4

Jesus ends with a strong statement, You know the way to the place (Heaven)where I am going” Many will try to complicate death but its simple. When you give yourself to Christ you belong to God. You are going to be with him in his Kingdom forever. Take comfort in these words and promises that our Messiah delivered to us in Jesus Name Amen

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 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!

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 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

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
