Present Suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

How can we remain at peace during our present suffering? As Christians we need to be realistic that there is going to be trials and suffering during life. Jesus told us we will encounter trouble, trials, and even tribulation, however he ended by saying take Heart I have overcome the world (John 16:33)

See even when we are suffering we can have the peace of God knowing that we are already victorious. Not matter what Satan is trying to do to us, Jesus have already overcome. There is nothing impossible for God, and we need to remember not to let a trial derail our faith.

The next part is our current suffering can’t compare to the glory of God that is ahead of us. Jesus told us there will be a day of no more tears, no more suffering, no more death for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:4)  So don’t allow your current suffering or trials defeat you because Jesus has already defeated death and sin

God teaches us to be content in all circumstances (Philippians 4:12) When we have strong faith we don’t have a wavering attitude. It’s easy to be joyful when everything is going good but it’s how you respond to suffering and trials that truly displays your faith. So whatever you’re going through today, tell Satan my present suffering can’t compare to the glory of God in my future in Jesus Name Amen

The Morning Star

“I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel. He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the people of Sheth. Numbers 24:17

Jesus is the morning star, (Revelation 22:16) and it was the Star of Bethlehem that led the shepherds and wise men to the new born King. Balaam, another prophet, who confirmed the coming of our Messiah, Jesus Christ, is the reason we celebrate the season.

A scepter , meaning royalty or King, will rise out of Israel. That King, Jesus, was born in a manger in Bethlehem, fulfilling many prophecies and saving us from our sins. Jesus is the King of Kings (Revelation 19:16) there is no one greater, come and worship your King.

The Moabites had enticed the Israelites into sinning and therefor losing Gods protection and caused major deaths. Jesus has overcome sin and death, there fulfilling this as Moab is symbolic of sin and death.

The people of Sheth (Seth) or people of Seth who was the third son of Noah representing all of mankind. Means Jesus, the Messiah , has come to save all of man kind, which he fulfilled this prophecy on the cross. So rejoice this season for our Messiah has come in Jesus Name Amen

What is CHRISTmas?

One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Romans 14:5-8

What does Christmas mean to you? There are some Christians who choose to condemn the celebration of Christmas and those who choose to acknowledge it, who is the judge? There are some who point out that Christmas has some pagan roots but others who use this opportunity to acknowledge our Lord and Savior. The more I search for the meaning of Christmas, the more I realize it’s a personal decision just as is our relationship with God. Nobody can be converted to a Christian, it’s a personal relationship with our God, just the same nobody can be told what the true meaning of Christmas is.

We can choose to ignore Christmas and pretend it doesn’t exist, but does that lead people to Christ? To the lost that will never hear a scripture or know a Church, can they benefit from not hearing the gospel of the Nativity? Some who claim its not Biblical to celebrate the birth of Christ need to reread the scriptures. Angels, Shepherds, and Wisemen came to bow down to the new born King and rejoice for its the salvation of the human race.

So me and my family will celebrate Christmas and use it to glorify the name and birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. If you agree or don’t agree, its ok. One day we will all stand before Jesus and give account of our actions. May the peace of God rule your hearts this Christmas Season in the name of the Prince of Peace Amen

Arm of God

He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. Luke 1:51

Who is the arm of God? When Mary received the Good News from the Angel Gabriel that she was chosen to give birth to The Messiah, she Glorified God with her song. The Arm of God is Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God in Flesh

See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and he rules with a mighty arm. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. Isaiah 40:10

Isaiah 40 prophesies about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, he is referenced as “The Mighty Arm of God’ among other things. When we understand this analogy, we then begin to understand The Trinity. As Jesus said “I and the Father are One” (John 10:30) He is the extension or branch of God in The Flesh. Jesus said he sits at the right hand of God (Mark 16:19) There is no greater power or authority than the right hand of God

When you understand this, you understand the importance of Jesus Christ coming to the world to save our sins. The Salvation of God sent in the Flesh, The Arm of God extended to the world to save it from our sins. Without our Messiah there is no Salvation, give praise and thanks to our Lord this season in Jesus Name Amen

Scepter Is Born

Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. Psalm 45:6

Scepter– royal or imperial power or authority , sovereignty

Remember all power and authority has been given to Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18) He is the Scepter, this is a prophecy of the coming of our King.

Christmas is a time to remember the birth of our Scepter, Jesus Christ. The Son of the Living God delivered to us to establish Gods kingdom that will last forever. There will be no end to the reign of Jesus Christ. His throne has been established on that day in the manger.

Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord and Lords (Revelation 19:16) Its time to rejoice and give thanks for your new born King. The King that has overcome the world, The King that was willing to lay down his life for us.

Is Jesus the King of your Kingdom? Have you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior? This Christmas season get the gift of life, the gift that is eternal and will never fade away. By the power of the Blood of Christ, we are victorious! The throne of God has been established in Jesus Name Amen!

Call Him Jesus

You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” Luke 1:31-33

What happened that night in the manger, when God delivered his promise to the world and sent his only begotten Son to deliver us. He is the son of The Most High God. Think about that, the son of the Creator of the Heavens and Earth, sent here to be our Messiah.  Is there any other greater redemption story, than the story of Christs birth at the manger?

And all power and authority has been handed over to Jesus (Matthew 28:18) and he sits on the throne today in Heaven as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. But first he came to this world to not be served but to serve us. (Matthew 20:28) He served us peace, hope, joy, love, and most importantly eternal life.

Gods kingdom will never end, and the road to our redemption started at the manger in Bethlehem. Born of a virgin, he overcame the world. Jesus delivered us from the bondages of sin and death, Glory to God in the highest in Jesus Name Amen

Follow The Star

When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:10-11

The Star of Bethlehem led the wise man to find the newborn King, Jesus Christ. What has led you to Christ? If you’re unsure, just like the wise men, why don’t you search the prophesies of the Messiah? When the wisemen set off for a journey of about 1,000 miles, it took them almost 2 years to complete.

The wise men weren’t sure what they were going to find, they did know that the Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem,  and God sent a prophetic sign of the Star, to guide the wise men in finding the King of Kings. Is God sending you a sign today? Come search for your Messiah!

What is the significance of the gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh? These gifts were given to only royalty as it showed the deity of Jesus Christ.

Gold- For obvious reasons, since Jesus was the King of Kings, he was presented with what is still the most valuable commodity on Earth. Gold was always is still is very valuable and a strong representation of Jesus stature

Frankincense-  Another symbol of Jesus deity, as Frankincense was burned routinely in the Temple of God , as it was required by God during worship (Leviticus 2:16)

Myrrh-  a holy anointing oil, yet again another sign of Jesus deity, that he is The Son of God and truly the Messiah.

It’s also notable that Frankincense and Myrrh had a lot of health and healing benefits, even still today they are used.  So what gifts are you offering to your King? God is sending you a sign today, its time to come to the manger and find your Lord and Savior in Jesus Name Amen

Where Is The One?

and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:2

Are you searching for the King of Kings? If your searching for your Lord and Savior, look no further than the manger. That’s where it all began, when God sent his only begotten Son down to Earth to save us from our sins. The question is are you searching? As Jesus said “Seek and you will find” (Matthew 7:7) This season seek for your Messiah, knock and the door will be opened (Matthew 7:7)

And when the wise men found Jesus, they worshiped him. Are you worshiping God today in Truth and Spirit? Don’t be ashamed on your Lord and Savior, as Jesus said anyone who is not ashamed of him , he won’t be ashamed of you before God (Mark 8:38)

This season Seek your Savior, find your only salvation from the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. The greatest present was already given to you, before you were even born. It’s the hope, grace, mercy, and peace that can only be found through Jesus Christ. Come worship at the manger this season in Jesus Name Amen

Immanuel

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14

God sent us a sign, what is the sign that the birth of Jesus Christ has given us? The sign of Christ is of hope, peace, and victory. Through a lowly baby in the manger, God has defeated Satan. A King given to us in a manger, who would have ever predicted this? But God told us this would happen 700 years before it did, and he fulfilled his promise.

The Son of God could only come through a Virgin because he is holy. Our Lord never sinned yet he came to die for our sins. He is the only one who could save us because we are not able to save ourselves. The only begotten Son of God was delivered to us , there is the sign from God for redemption.

Immanuel means God is with us, even though the world didn’t recognize or receive him. God is with us, through his Son, and through his Spirit. We can rejoice this season because God has sent us a sign, that we have salvation in Jesus Name Amen

Child is Born

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Who is this child prophesied about in the Bible? It’s the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who was foretold about 700 years before Jesus came to Earth.  In fact, if you study the Old Testament the coming of Yeshua (Jesus) was prophesied throughout it. So let’s remember and rejoice that God has sent his only begotten Son to save us from our sins.

Jesus is many things to us, our Lord, our Savior, our Wonderful Counselor, our Mighty God, our Everlasting Father, and importantly our Prince of Peace. Without Christ as the center of your life, you can’t have peace. You can’t buy it or drink it or smoke it, it can only be obtained by The Holy Spirit of God.

We have peace knowing that we are redeemed and forgiven. We have peace knowing that by the blood of Christ, we are Children of God. We can have peace knowing that we worship the God of The Living and not of the dead. So let the peace of Christ rule your hearts this season and glorify his name in Jesus Name Amen
