Spiritual Warfare

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

There is much more to this world than meets the eye, there is a spiritual world full of good and evil which drives everything. Once you understand this, you understand how powerless and vulnerable we are on our own.

But if you walk with God he will protect you and give you wisdom to avoid the traps of Satan. Think about the problems or obstacles in your life, what is the driving force behind them? The answer is Satan, we are under attack.

(1 John 5:19) “We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.”

The world is under Satans control, if you don’t believe me take a look around. Nation against nation, babies being legally murdered, homosexuals being legally married. This is not the Kingdom of God, this is people following Satan.

So what do we do? Return to God and put on the “Armour of God’ and stand against evil. Stop following the ways of Satan and follow Jesus.

(Ephesians 6:13) “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

The Word of God has power and can stand against anything, like a sword it cuts thru deceit of the enemy. The Wisdom you obtain will help you avoid the pitfalls of Satans traps.

Take a stand against Evil, take a stand with God. This is about life and death, this isn’t a fairy tale this is reality, you are in Spiritual Warfare whether you believe it or not.

(Romans 8:6) “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”

Carnally means worldly or fleshly lusts. When will live for the world and not God it leads to your death. You can’t follow Satan and God at the same time. You need to draw the line and take a side. Live for today or live for eternity.

But you will be under attack, there is Spiritual war going on. Stand with God and you can stand against anything. Put on your Armour of God and take a stand in Jesus name Amen

Gods Plan for You

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Somedays you wonder, what is my purpose, what is my destiny? But God has a plan for you. He has not forgotten or ignored you. Timing is everything, we need to learn to follow Gods timeline and not our own.

When we make our own plans for our life, we don’t fulfill our destiny. What we might think is our best, might only be a fraction of what God has in store for you.

(Isaiah 55:8) “”For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.”

Many times we believe what God is thinking or we know what’s best for us. But we can’t imagine or comprehend what God’s plans are for us.

Take Moses for example, spent the past 40 years in the wilderness now God called him to go back to Egypt and lead the Israelites. Do you think Moses ever thought he would go back to Egypt? Or become a great prophet for a nation he used to enslave?

(Proverbs 3:5) “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;”

Our biggest problem is we try to use our own logic and not trust God. Man can’t comprehend how God created the Heavens and The Earth so man created up the Big Bang Theory. Man can’t comprehend that God is the creator of life so they created Evolution. Why do we do this?

Because it make us feel like we’re still in control when we make up our own logic. The reality is were not in control, God is in complete control, lean not on your own understanding.

(Romans 8:28) “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

Key words here at “According to his Purpose” Sometimes we believe were doing Gods will, but were only pleasing ourselves. How can we know what his will is then? God will open the doors to where you’re supposed to go. If you have to break down a door to reach your destiny, it probably wasn’t meant to be.

God never said it was going to be an easy path either, you must remember you will be tested, you will be tempted to quit, but remember “all things work together for good” just follow God and his plans for you. In Jesus name Amen

Got Faith?

Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:9?


Your faith determines everything. For it’s easy for people to say they believe but to really demonstrate that faith is a true test. For we walk by faith and not by sight. Therefore if you have no faith, you don’t walk with The Lord.

The salvation of your soul is based on your faith. God is a just God, therefore would it be fair for everyone receive the same reward. No your reward in heaven is based on your faith level and relationship you have with Jesus.

(Matthew 14:31) “And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”


Peter believed, and when he put his faith in Jesus he walked on the water. But the Peter started to doubt and immediately began to sink. Isn’t this similar to our own lives. We believe and have faith, take a bold step, only to begin to doubt ourselves and begin to sink.

But as he did in this story, Jesus is always there to save us. But you can tell the disappointment in Jesus statement, why do you doubt? Why do we doubt? What more does Jesus have to do for us till we put full faith into him?

(Matthew 17:20) “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”


It only takes faith the size of the mustard seed to move a mountain, yet we still don’t have enough. Why? What do you have faith in? If you can’t believe in our Lord who saved our life, what do you believe in?

You have the power of the almighty God behind you, the God who created the Heavens and the Earth, who knows every star by name, who knows the number of hairs on your head. Why do you doubt him?

(James 2:17) “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.


Eventually one day God is going to call you to take a leap of faith. To do something bold to show his glory. This will show your true faith, will you answer his call or ignore him?

Your task from God might seem illogical or maybe even insane to the world, but trust in The Lord and your faith will reward you. So ask yourself do you really have faith? Faith to walk on water or move a mountain or is your faith dead?



No Sign No Excuse

And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. Mark 8:12


If only God showed me a sign I would believe. If only , If only, If only  Sound familiar? Generations continue to question God and demand a sign. What sign do you really want to see? Perhaps God showed you signs but you were too busy and distracted to pay attention.

(Romans 1:20)” For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”


You want a sign but the creation of the almighty God is clearly present, the planets, the stars, and most importantly yourself. You are without excuse, you can deny the living God all you want but you can’t deny the awesomeness of his creation.

(Colossians 1:15) “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”


Jesus is the image of the invisible God, Word became Flesh and dwelt among us. Who will deny the existence of Jesus Christ?  Only fools would say that God doesn’t exist, the signs were giving to us throughout history.


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


We are created in the image of God, if you want to believe in God look in the mirror. To deny the existence of your heavenly Father is to deny yourself.  How insulting is it that we deny our maker when he breathed life into our bodies. You rather believe we were formed from nothiness

(Hebrews 11:3)” Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.


When you understand the Word of God and understand our almighty God, then you will understand your existence. Your demands for a sign are unjustified. You should be grateful you have been giving the gift of life. If you don’t believe, stop waiting for a sign. For you are all without excuse, for God lives in us all in Jesus Name Amen

Drop Your Stones

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. John 8:7


The prostitute caught in the act was going to be executed for her sins. To all the men this was justified by the commandments of God. So here comes Jesus, God in the flesh, surely he will lay down his wrath upon this sinner.

But instead Jesus asked us to judge ourselves, who among us is without sin? Who among us is worthy to be the judge of righteousness? None of us, for we all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God.

(John 5:22) “For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:”


Jesus, the Son of God, is the only one who can judge us. So why do we waste our time judging others? Do you believe you have the authority to judge anyone?

Instead of judging people of there sins and shortfalls we need to show them the love and mercy of Jesus. Judgment is not ours, judgment is for Jesus. If it was up to man they would have stoned the women to death and felt it was justified. But it wouldn’t have been justified becase it was the will of God.


(Matthew 7:1) “”Do not judge, or you too will be judged.”


When Jesus asked who was without sin, everyone dropped there stone. Why? Because were all guilty, were all not worthy of the book of life. But Jesus thru his blood on the cross made it possible for us to be redeemed of those sins.

With that said judgment is not ours, you want to continue judging people you will bring more judgment upon yourself.  We need to show people the love and mercy of Christ and leave the judgment to him.

(John 8:11) “She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.”


After Jesus showed his mercy, he instructed her to sin no more. Mercy isn’t giving someone a free pass on a life of sin. It’s about changing your life from sin. When you feel and experience the love of Jesus you will change your life

If you continue to judege others, which is not your authority, they may never feel the love and mercy of Christ. Drop your stones, let judgment up to Jesus, and show people the love of Christ in Jesus name Amen

Contentment is Great Gain

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. Philippians 4:11
Are you content in any situation? Or do you waver under stressful situations? When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior he always becomes our Peace and Strength. We should not worry about whether we are rich or poor, healthy or weak, for we are already blessed already from the Gift of life God has giving us
We need to learn in all situations to stay in Peace and Let God fight for us.
(Exodus 14:14) “The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”
When we are under attack by our Enemies it’s our human nature to strike back. But we need to learn to stay in Peace and Let God fight our battles.
The world might view this as weakness but we know our strength comes from The Lord and not ourselves. He has the power to spin planets and galaxies into existence; he can overcome any obstacle that you may be facing.
(Matthew 5:39) “But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”
Jesus taught us to “turn the other cheek” why? Because the battle is not ours, that battle is for God. We need to learn to trust in God thru all situations. Stay in Peace and Stay Content.
Satan likes to tempt us with greed, envy, lust, ect. But we must learn we are already blessed. It’s his trap to get you off course. Don’t repay evil with evil, resist the devil and he will flee from you.
(1 Timothy 6:6) “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”
When we learn to be content with what we have we gain Peace and Strength that can’t be bought. People who always need more possessions and wealth will never gain true Peace, because it will never be enough.
Many battles and struggles are due to people not being content with what God has already giving them. Whatever the world is going to throw at you, you will be able to overcome it with the Peace and Strength of Jesus Christ Amen

Are you Conforming or Transforming?

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2
Are you conforming or transforming? These are the only 2 options in life, you are either following the ways of God or your following the ways of the world.
• The world says Children can be aborted but God says Children are the Heritage of the Lord
• The world says your spouse is a ball and chain but God says A Virtuous Women is the crown of her husband
• The world says you’re weak God says I can do all things thru Christ that gives me strength
• The world says watch your back God says As Iron sharpens Iron so we sharpen one another
When you renew your mind thru Christ you begin to see the world in a whole new light.
(1 John 5:19) “We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.”
Why are the ways of the world so evil? Because the world is under control by Satan. But isn’t the Earth Gods creation, how can Satan control it? Because we allow him to. You see God is our Creator but not a dictator he gives everyone the gift of free will.
So Satan has taken advantage of that free will and convinced people to follow him thru sin. Enticing them that the pleasure of sin are greater than the gift of eternal life.
Satans influence has become so great he has control of the world thru nations, governments, technology, ect. But his control is only enabled by people choosing to follow him.
(1 John 4:4) “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
The Power of Christ within you will give you the strength to overcome this world. Jesus conquered the world when he was raised from the dead, that same power is living inside of you thru the Holy Spirit.
Follow the ways of the world will only lead to your death. Follow Jesus he you will be giving eternal life
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; Ephesians 4:23
But we must renew our minds and not conform to the ways of this world. For we are what we think, when we think evil thoughts as the world you become evil. Keep your mind on the things above in Jesus name Amen

Sharper than a Sword

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
There’s a reason why you should study and know the “Word of God” because not only is it full of wisdom and power. But this is a gift from God that is priceless and lead you to eternal life. It’s no surprise why the world is offended by the Word of God because the Word is truth and truth can’t be rebuked.
(2 Peter 1:21) “For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
Non-believers will try to discredit The Bible by the authors who wrote the Bible. But they don’t understand the Bible was written by God thru humans by the Holy Spirit. Once you understand this you begin to see “The Power of the Word of God” as there is no situation or no problem that can’t be solved using The Bible.
(2 Timothy 3:16) “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
The Word of God is not only a great historical resource but we should use for our daily instruction. There is no problem under the sun that God hasn’t seen. If your feeling lonely, depressed, anxious, confused, ect. The Bible has scriptures and stories to guide you thru your daily life:
• Knowledge- Proverbs 3-5:6
• Rest- Matthew 11:28-30
• Overwhelmed Luke 18:27
• Love John 3:16
• Forgiveness Romans 8:1
• Wisdom 1 Corinthians 1:30
• Strength Philippians 4:13
• Fear 2 Timothy 1:7
• Loneliness Hebrews 13:5

(Isaiah 49:2) “He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver.
As the prophet Isaiah said God made his mouth like a Sword. What did he mean? He meant the Holy Spirit came thru him and spoke the powerful “ Words of God” that lead the nation of Israel back to redemption. We have the privilege to already have these Words giving to us in the Bible. Don’t be foolish and squander this gift from God. King Solomon’s only wish to God was to have wisdom, and we have all that wisdom right now. So the question is what are you going to do with this gift? Are you going to use your sword or allow the world to slay you?

We Rise Again

For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, Proverbs 24:1

Somedays it’s hard to be the light of the world when the world keeps blowing your light out

How deep are your roots of faith? This will only be answered when you endure the storms of life

On days like this it feels like God is a million miles away we know he is with us but can’t feel him

I reflect on sad Psalms from David like Psalms 88:13 3But I, O LORD, have cried out to You for help, And in the morning my prayer comes before You. 14O LORD, why do You reject my soul? Why do You hide Your face from me?…

But I take comfort in knowing God never forsaken David and always delivered him from his distress.

Or I reflect on the  book of Job where Satan took everything from Job “Therefore I will not keep silent; I will speak out in the anguish of my spirit, I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.

But again I take comfort in knowing even though Job lost everything God repayed him twice for what he had and redeemed him.

Someday are faith is going to be tested, how deep really are your roots? Because one day a hurricane of life will come through and uproot the shallow so be prepared.

But today is a new day and I declare  “This is the day the Lord has made and I will be glad and rejoice in it.

As it says in Psalms There maybe pain in the night but joy comes in the morning.

And most importantly I always remember the cross, the sacrifice Jesus made for us to redeem us for our sins. Always remember the covenant he made with us and the hope it brings.

Today we rise again in knowing our God will endure forever and won’t forsake us

I pray that God gives us the strength and peace to endure thru the storms of life and we hold on to his covenant he made with us.  Amen

Faith Walkers

For we live by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7

We live in a world today that wants instant results; with the emergence of technology everything is instant. Everyone is at our fingertips now with the Internet and mobile devices.

However faith works totally different, for thru faith we learn patience, discipline, and perseverance. We learn to cherish the blessings we receive and acknowledge the victories God has won for us.

Even though our blessings will be great we will be put thru a test to get them. Stay in faith and it will see you thru it.

Abraham was promised to be the Father of many nations; his seed will cover the Earth like sand. However Abraham was almost 100 years old till that blessing came to pass.

We also live in a world where seeing is believing. The world says how can you believe in an invisible God? Do you believe in love? Can you see it? Do you believe in the wind? Can you see it?

Here’s what the scripture says: Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

As it says in the scripture there is no excuse not to believe in God; We are made in the image of God and Jesus became God in the flesh. Many signs have been given to us but few want to receive them.

Faith is what builds us a strong relationship with God filled with trust and admiration of his Glory; if there never was a struggle how can faith be tested then?

As Jesus said in John 20:29 “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

I pray everyone takes a leap of faith and puts all there trust in God and he will make there paths straight Amen
