Hedge of God

“Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. Job 1:10

When we read the book of Job we learn many things about the battle between Satan and God. We also learn that God had put a “hedge” of protection around Job and his family because he was blessed by God. When we stay loyal and obedient to God he will bless you and your family also and put a “hedge” around them.

Hedge- also translated as “Wall”- is a surround or border put around something

God was bragging to Satan how proud he was of Job, because he was a righteous man. But Satan complained to God that he couldn’t get to Job because of the “hedge” of protection around him and his family. God then allowed the “hedge” to be lifted for Satan to test Job.

So if you really want to bless your family and yourself, get in agreement with God. Have your family covered by the blood of Jesus Christ (Luke 22:20) There is no power greater than “The Great I AM” If you truly cared about your family, you would put the “Hedge” of God around them in Jesus Name Amen

Road to Heaven

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

Are there many roads to Heaven? Many false teachers and religions teach there are multiple paths to Heaven and God. They teach that God is manifested in different forms and all religions lead to the same God. These teachings contradict The Bible and go against everything Jesus has taught us. Jesus made it very clear he is the only way to God and Heaven.

So why is Jesus the only way? The reason is we have a sin problem; in the beginning we were created perfect. Then Satan entered sin into the world through Adam and Eve, and corrupted the entire human race. Since the wages of sin are death, we are now slaves to sin and death. For are all sinners and have fallen short to the Glory of God.

But God had a redemption plan, since he loves us and his mercy endures forever, he sent his only Son to be the atonement for our sins. Jesus took on our sins and the sins of the world, so that we may have eternal life. Jesus is the only one who can do this for us, since he is perfect and the only Son of God. No one else can forgive you of your sins.

After 3 days Jesus rose from the dead and lives forevermore. He holds the keys to death and hell. Jesus now sits at the right hand of God with all power and authority. He defeated death, sin, and hell on the cross for you and I.

If you would like to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior say this prayer:

Heavenly Father,

Forgive me of my sins, I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior, fill me with your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name Amen

Poured Out

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.  Acts 2:17-18

Are you filled with The Holy Spirit? The prophet Joel foretold about the coming of The Holy Spirit 800 years before the day of Pentecost. The day of Pentecost was the great day promised by Jesus, that God would send his Holy Spirit and pour it out upon everyone (Acts 1:4)

But make no mistake about it, the Holy Spirit is still with us today and God wants to pour him upon you. As the prophecy is foretold, the Holy Spirit is not limited to anyone, men and women, young and old. If you receive Christ as your Lord and Savior you will be baptized by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11)

Jesus taught us about the Holy Spirit as the comforter, the advocate, and helper. (John 14:16) Paul teaches us about the gifts (wisdom, knowledge,faith,healing,miracles, distinguish Spirits, prophecy,tounges)   of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians) and the fruits (love, joy,peace,patience,kindness,goodness,faithfulness, gentleness, and self control) of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22) God wants to fill you up with the Holy Spirit, are you willing to receive him?

Don’t fight the good fight unequipped. We are fighting a Spiritual Warfare and Satan is looking to devour us like a Lion. But we have the same power that rose Christ from the dead living inside of us (Romans 8:11) let God fill you up with his power in Jesus Name Amen

Cornerstone

Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’?  Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.” Luke 20:17-18

Is Jesus the “Cornerstone” of your life? Or did you reject him? When we talk about Jesus being our Cornerstone, we mean he is the foundation on everything we do in life. As Jesus taught he is “The Rock” (Matthew 16:1*) and when the storms of life come, you will not waver. But will you build on the sand and the storms of life come, your life comes crashing down.

We need to make Jesus the Cornerstone or center of our life, to be planted like a tree with deep roots of faith. So when adversity or storms arrive, when will not be “uprooted” from our faith. Faith is the confidence of things hoped for (Hebrews 11:1)

Notice when we fall on the “Cornerstone” we will be broken, many times before we can be fixed we have to be broken. Often people don’t know they need a Savior until they have to be saved.  God will take what is old and make it new again. The breaking is part of our rebirth or transformation into becoming who God created you to be.

Make Jesus your Chief Cornerstone and have the faith and confidence to stand on The Rock in Jesus Name Amen

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

Your Faith Will Heal You

He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Luke 18:38

When you’re in a time of trouble, how do you respond? What do you when you’re in a crisis? Often we waste a lot of time and energy trying to resolve our own issues, when God already has the answer and wants to hear from us. Call out to Jesus and he will save you!

Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Luke 18:39

There are always going to be people rebuking you, telling you to be quiet or telling you that your wrong. But noticed what the blind man did, when they told him to be quiet he shouted to Jesus even louder. See we can’t allow others to distract or derail our faith, set your sights on Jesus he is your Lord and Savior

“What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord, I want to see,” he replied. Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” Luke 18:41-42

Jesus answered him and said what do you need from me? Its important that we specifically tell Jesus what is wrong. Remember you can’t have faith without action, and this mans action proved his faith to Jesus and he healed him.

Don’t allow others to lose your faith, Your Faith will Heal You in Jesus Name Amen

No Longer Slaves

For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin- Romans 6:6

When we see pictures of Jesus on the cross, what comes to mind? When you look at Christ on the cross, you should see yourself also. Because Jesus didn’t die for his sins or actions, because he is holy. Christ died for your sins. All of our sins and transgressions has put Jesus on the cross. See when you see Christ on the cross, you should see yourself.

But because Jesus tasted death for us, we are no longer slaves to sin and death. See your old self died on that cross, and when Jesus was resurrected, you were resurrected also. This is why we live and die with Christ. We died with him on the cross and we also rose with him from the tomb. Its through Christ we have victory!

So knowing this, we can only live holy lives. Since you were baptized by the Holy Spirit and raised from the dead, you can’t go back to your old self. The wages of sin are death, and Jesus took the death for you. Therefore you must live a holy life, worth pleasing to your Heavenly Father. So when you see a cross, remember you have already died on it and have been delivered from its wrath through Christ in Jesus Name Amen

Camel or Rope

Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” Luke 18:25

Is this scripture supposed to have camel or rope in it? As Gentiles when we first look at this scripture it doesn’t appear to make sense and there is an assumption that the scripture has been mistranslated. However when we dive deeper into this passage we find that it makes perfect sense. Let’s examine this scripture further.

There are some who proclaim that this scripture is proof that the New Testament was written in Aramaic and not Greek. This is because the word “Gamia” mean both camel and rope in Aramaic.

However the same mistake could be made in Greek as the word “Kamilon” mean thick rope and “Kamelon” means camel. Therefore it debunks the premise that this scripture must have been written in Aramaic. There is overwhelming evidence that the New Testament was written originally in Greek

So how does the word “Camel” make sense here?  There is an ancient Jewish Proverb that says “Elephant pass through the eye of a needle”  http://www.sacred-texts.com/jud/ajp/ajp13.htm.

This analogy is used many times throughout Jewish Proverbs . So since Jesus was a Jew speaking to a Jewish audience it would make sense for him to reference this well known proverb. It would also make sense he would change elephant with camel because a camel was the largest animal known in that region Jesus was teaching.

Its clear, Jesus message is unless we clean our hearts and minds, from greed, envy, selfishness, idolatry. Unless we become “born again” we will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. And we can take confidence knowing that your Bible is the true Word of God and will never change in Jesus Name Amen

Happy New Year 2017

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

2017 is a new year, full of new beginnings and new hope. Whatever trials or suffering you endured over the past year , go into the new year knowing this “Gods mercy is New Every morning”. You can go into the new year with joy, peace and victory knowing this principle that God did not leave or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6) But he is still with you giving you a New start with his everlasting love

Its time to put on the new self, which is renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator (Colossians 3:10) Now that you know God has granted you grace and mercy by the blood of Jesus Christ, its time to start New. Its time to put away your old self , full of sin and despair, and its time to live in victory for your Heavenly Father.  But you must make the change, Gods mercy is new every morning but you must be new also.

Set your mind on things above and not on earthly things (Colossians 3:2) You can’t expect a new beginning if you don’t change. Stop living for the flesh, which is temporary, and live for God which is eternal. Start this year off with a New Self and a New Beginning. Accept Christ as your Lord and Savior because his Mercy is new every morning in Jesus Name Amen

Unity In Christ

To bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. Ephesians 1:10

When Jesus came down here to Earth, he brought unity to all. By his blood, he created a new covenant that allows all of us to be “Children of God”. This is a real reason to celebrate the coming of our Messiah. Before Christ , we were just Gentiles, hopeless without God. But because God loved us so much he sent his only Son to unite mankind together.

There is no longer Jew or Gentile, we are now one body of Christ. This would not be possible without the fulfillment of our Messiah, Lord Jesus. He fulfilled over 300 prophecies in the Old Testament. The possibilities of anyone even fulfilling a few of those prophecies is one in a trillion, trillion, ect. Take confidence in knowing Jesus is our Messiah, he is the Son of God promised by our Heavenly Father.

Just as Jesus said a kingdom divided among itself will not stand, we must unite through Christ. There is only one Heaven, one God, and one way to get there. Be kind and patient with your brothers and sisters for they will be with you for all eternity. Instead of a mind of division, fix your mind on the unity of Christ in Jesus Name Amen
