Continuous Grace!

St John 1:16 tells us: And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace. This means all believers possess continuous grace, power and ability. God foresaw the fall of Adam and Eve.  He already made full provisions for our restoration back to Himself. He invites all humankind to partake of these provisions!

When you know that God loves you, you will put your confidence in Him.

 As we continue believing, God’s grace comes in and take us beyond what we are able to do.

                                                                     The grace of God is a believers greatest witness!

Only Believe

Christians should always make time to pray and draw closer to God. We will never uncover what God has already supplied for us until we draw closer.  If we cannot make time for God…We are far too busy.

We will never get to heaven until we are transformed into a new creation. Only God can do this.  This body is not equipped to handle heaven. If we will not stay still and let him do His mighty works in us, we stay stained and marked as the devils property.   The unsaved must ask Jesus into their life to clean them up and releases them from being a brainwashed slave to the accuser who is always sewing negative things into our minds.

Once the unsaved accepts Him, they are justified, just as if they never sinned yet constantly reminded by the Holy Ghost that we are much better than our old nature. God do not keep accusing us of our wrongs, He transforms our minds through the Word, the working of the Holy Spirit so we are able to do the right thing in his sight. We are free people! FREE from slavery. We don’t have to succumb to what the devil tells us to do. Resist the devil just like you would resist the enemy on the battle field. Stay alert and stay close to God so he cannot have his way with you.

Some people just love sin so much that they invite it in and relish the so-called good life only on this earth. They are not concerned about their eternity because they actually think that after death everything is all over. Whooping it up might last for a lifetime, but when it comes time to give out wages for what you did or did not do here on this earth, well, that is a completely different story. In this case, the wages are higher than one would probably care to accept. The wages of sin is death, but the GIFT of God is eternal life. Why do people reject eternal life? Because they don’t believe it exist.

After physical death, our real life begins with who we really are and we will either spend it in heaven or hell. We simply go back to being what we are without the human body suits we are in… spirit beings. However, your decision here on this earth determines your eternal destiny. Don’t get it twisted too bad where you can’t get untangled. Watch and pray that you do not enter into temptation..(Matthew 26:41)

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 (KJV)

Romans 12:2 :  ( NLT) says it more plainly:

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Healing will not manifest physically, mentally, or financially unless one actually believe it. A person must take hold of it and run with joy telling it to people believing Gods Word that it is already done! You see, that’s crazy to the human mind. We scare the unsaved when we are bold like that.

When under pressure, we often discover what we believe. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. (Luke 6:45)

You can speak “I am healed by his stripes” However when the doctors delivers a bad report of your health… What comes forth out of your mouth at that moment is what you really believe.

There is an abundance of treasure waiting for us to take hold of us, why don’t we take them? (Mark 5:36)

As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.(Luke 8:50)

But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

Humans typically believe what they see, hear, taste, feel and smell. If none of these attributes are  present, we tend to dismiss the idea as not real, ridiculous, stupid or bizarre or whatever.

However, most humans are not aware that they we are spirits and must learn how to operate in the spiritual realm in order to have a relationship and close bond with God. Read the first chapter on Genesis how God breathe life into us.  It was his life…but when Adam and Eve switched out they forfeited all they had and unfortunately the same went for us until Jesus Came and Delivered those who truly believe thou they never saw  Jesus with their eyes.  Demonic oppression is the only thing stopping us from reaching our ultimate powers we have through Christ.

Applied pressure causes many to cave in, give up, quit, then crash and burn.

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:36

Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. Mark 13:33

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26:41

We cannot play around on the battle field.

Nothing is impossible with God!

He lifts you up!

The labor that we find difficult to perform is letting go and God and allowing Gods finished work to manifest in us through relentless FAITH that He’s got an answer for all of our woes and whining and let downs. All we have to do is draw closer to the Lord so he can show us how to tap in to our resources.

We have healing, prosperity, no distress and not hunger because God has already provided us with the means to tap into the Holy treasures God have stored up for us. He wants us to rest in knowing that we must labor to learn how to say “I AM HEALED BY HIS STRIPES” .

If your doctor tells you that you have cancer and have an expectancy date to die. It takes labor to look straight at that doctor and say, I understand, but I am healed by his stripes.  It takes labor to see your child go away and you finally let go by confirming that “God takes care of your children”, he will protect them. And it takes even more labor to say “God supplies all my needs according to his riches in Glory through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, when you are jobless and hungry. However, keep believing until that thing manifest before your eyes. In John 15:7 Jesus said: “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”

Philippians 4:19 states:

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

People, many of us are trying to get God to move and do things He’s already done. It is now our move.

Be strong and trust in the fact that God is always there in the midst looking at you and wondering why you choose to go through things rather than calling upon Him so you learn how to access the secrets to total victory, spiritual, mental, and physical success!

Recipe For True Success

In the Book_of_Proverbs” Proverbs10:22 it says: The blessings of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. In Mark 10:17 a  rich man ran up to and kneeled to him asking him what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life. Well the rich man admitted to not committing adultery, killing, stealing or bearing false witness and not defrauding or dishonoring his father and mother.  However, Jesus answered the rich man  In Mark 10:21 and said:
One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. In  Mark 10:22, the rich man went away grieved: for he had GREAT possessions. You see the issue brothers and sisters is not the riches, it is that the rich man deeply trusted in his riches. Many of use misinterpret these scriptures and believe that God wants us to be poor. This in untrue… he wants us to trust in him not riches.

Indeed the rich man trusted his money more than he trusted His God who blessed him with the money. The kingdom of God meant less to him than his money. This is the case with many of us. As long as we have money, we are in a safe haven.  Look in Proverbs 18:11 where it says, that a rich man’s wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit. Do not allow your wealth to cause you to miss everlasting riches…

AMEN AND AMEN.

Temptations

In the first few chapters of the book of Genesis, God established Adam as Eve and gave them power over everything, and everything they needed, he also gave.  After the serpent convinced Eve against God’s s specific instructions, Genesis 3:6 tells us that she was convinced after she saw how beautiful and delicious the fruit looked and she desperately wanted it. Allurement is attraction to something flattering or desirable.

Eve‘s desires for the fruit made her forget the importance of what she already had. According to James 1:15; lust gives birth to sinful actions. In Ephesians chapter 4 and verse 18, states we continue to drift far from the life God gives.

Many of us keep closing our minds and hardening our hearts towards God. Still, even in our rebellion, God loves us so much, that again, he gave us everything we could ever need or want through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. Yet, we still do not understand the importance and the power we possess. Some people are not excited by God, but by His creations. Clearly, they are after the charming things they see, hear, taste, and feel, however, we should be chasing God. We should be storing up heavenly treasure that will never end. We are to desire the creator more than His creations.

Identity Theft

Chapter 1 verse 26 of the book of Genesis in the Bible tells us that God gave us dominion over all living creatures.  Genesis 9:2 states that: All the animals of the earth, all the birds of the sky, all the small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the fish in the sea will look on you with fear and terror. I have placed them in your power.

The very moment Eve started listening to a serpent; this was proof that she did not understand the part about her and Adam having dominion over all the animals.

She took the word of the serpent as more valuable than that of God. Furthermore, Eve outright disobeyed because she thought that she was missing out on something. The enemy introduced fear of loss into Eve’s mind. Genesis 3:1 in the New Living Translation (NLT) tells us: The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the LORD God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”

It is plain to see that he was aiming to confuse and manipulate.

The serpent or the enemy of God tried the same trick on Jesus in Luke 4:3 where it states:  And the devil said unto him, if thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. God had already told Jesus that He was His beloved Son, in whom He is well pleased. Jesus assured the enemy that He knew his identity and he did not have to do anything to prove it. Overall, the enemy tries to get us to act upon something.

Those who are spiritually weak are prime targets. They are the groper’s spoke of in Deuteronomy 28:29 where it states: You will grope around in broad daylight like a blind person groping in the darkness, but you will not find your way. You will be oppressed and robbed continually, and no one will come to save you. However, God did come to save us.

2 Corinthians 4:4 further confirms this blindness; it states:

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

A Christian must know who he or she is in Christ. In Matthew 16:15 Jesus asked his disciples…But whom say ye that I am”? Then comes a most profound revelation contained in Matthew 16:16-19 stating: And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

God literally gave us supernatural abilities to loose the hands of the enemy and to bind him where he has no control. We have the power not to submit to sin and deception. Believers receive the keys to the kingdom of heaven and have power to change situations and the gates of hell shall not prevail over this power.

2 Corinthians 10:5 says we are now capable of …Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

God works in surrendered true believers. 2 Corinthians 13:5 tells us to:

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

It is God in you that is performing what you otherwise could not accomplish. Know your identity, you in Christ, your name is VICTORY!!!

Give Me Your Eyes

Heavenly Father, these days are days of sorrow and great trickery. I thank you for being ever-present in my life and in all the decisions that I am faced with. I ask forgiveness of any decision that I have made that is not in position with your will. Furthermore, Lord, I need You to get involved in my life in a powerful way and grant me the skill to separate of the “Spirit” of truth from the spirit of error.

Teach me to examine the spirits to see whether they are from You (1John 4:1). Let your word prick my heart and cause me to practice how to distinguish the good from evil so I will be unpolluted and blameless for the day of “Christ”, help my love to flourish more and more in all judgment
Lord, allow my eyes to see the disguises of “Satan” In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, show me through your eyes, let me hear with a spiritual ear and embrace me with Your mighty power. Father, I thank you for hearing my prayer. I trust and have faith that You are giving me that special ability to discern what your will is for me. I thank you Lord, in the name of Jesus, ….Give me Your Eyes So I can See.

Now We Have Power to Overcome

We are always thinking about the things we do wrong and we fail to remember that anyone who have already accepted Jesus Christ into their lives are accounted as righteous in the eyes of God. Jesus took away the ability for sin to reign over a believer. Giving in to and agreeing with sin is actually rejecting the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus who died that we may be free. We are actually choosing to continue to be slaves to sin.

As a Christian, we do not practice being a sinner. We may unintentionally do wrong but when we are born again, we do not allow our guilt to make us feel un-worthy. Keep resisting until you finally conquer and make your flesh line up with the spirit person.  The only way for this to happen is through constant meditation on the Word of God and remembering that as a born again Christian Jesus died for all your sins; past, present and future. The Bible tells us in:

Hebrews 10:26-28  That….

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