For God So Loved The World, That He Gave His Only Begotten Son!

For God So Loved The World, That He Gave His Only Begotten Son

Focus Scripture: Matthew 21:28-32; Luke 6:46 and Isaiah 5:1-7

The keeping of our word, our covenant with God, Our promises, our vows is one of the most powerful gifts of obedience to God we can offer. 

What if God had not kept His Word to us, foretold in the Book of Isaiah of the coming of Our Lord and Savior Jesus The Christ, The Sacrificial Lamb of God who take th away the sins of the world!?

What if God lied or made the lame and worthless excuses we make when we break Covenant, go back on our word, our marriage vows, our promises?! Ever think about that? We would be given the judgment we deserve of eternal death and Hell! 

But thankfully God, unlike man, kept His Word, keeps His Word and His Word is the same yesterday as it is today and for all eternity. Why then are we incapable of the same? Of honoring our vows, our promises, our Covenants, our pledges, our word???!!!

Is it for lack of sincerity? Yes! 

Is it for fear of isolation/rebuke/ostracism/disenfranchisement? Yes!

Does greed motivate us? Yes!

Fear or poverty or job loss stimulate us? Yes!

Do threats of violence motivate us? Yes!

Do we waffle between the world and The Word? Yes!

Are we weak-minded and immature Christians? Yes!

Do we pick what scriptures we will adhere to and follow and those we purposefully won’t follow, when we willfully sin, rely on God’s mercy, as we re-crucify Christ, to forgive us so that we can “get off scot-free” from our willful disobedience? Yes!

Do we forget the great gift we undeservedly received of Jesus, His ministry of reconciliation and salvation in order to commit our sins, and then cry out ABBA Father, AFTER we sinned against God, Jesus and others like impetuous children? Yes!

Does our word not matter? Yes! For if it truly did how could we be so wreckless with it, with flirting with the rebuke and punishment of God for lying to Him and others when we break or go back on our word?

What if God was as fickle as us?

What if God never sent Jesus or His Holy Spirit to save us, FROM us?

What if God broke His Word as much and as frequently as us? 

We break God’s heart and grieve Him with each broken vow, each broken promise, each broken Covenant, each broken Word, each disobedient and disrespectful act we conceive in our hearts, and that we fulfill with actions and or words!

God cries as we has to painfully watch us sin against or break Covenant, promises or vows with Him, our spouses, children, family, friends and coworkers. 

Each time we sin by omission or commission, the Holy Spirit In us DIES off in fragments and pieces. 

You see God’s spirit cannot dwell where we have given sin/Satan residence, and when we open the door to evil, it gleefully comes in. 

Breaking our word, promises, vows and Covenant with God and others is an open door policy to Satan and sin!

Brothers and sisters, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus The Christ, the living embodiment of God’s Word, God’s promises kept and fulfilled, and God’s Covenant to us, let us KEEP The Word of God and truly live it, not play with it!!!

Let our word be our bond and our bond be our word, no matter the cost. No matter who turns from us. No matter the consequences, not even death should dissuade us from doing what is RIGHT in the sight of The Lord!

What if Jesus, when facing His death on the cross, broke His Word to Our Father and ran away from being the blood sacrifice for our sins? Not His own, but ours? Where would we be?

Life is but a flicker. None of us knows when our time here will end! I was woefully reminded of this on December 14 at hearing the news that my son’s friend at the young age of 19 was called Home!

Let us all reflect on that and on how we choose to live and repay the gift of salvation!

Let us all strive with the commitment of Jesus Christ to keep our Covenant with God, no matter the cost!

Lord be quick with Your correction or send a saint to warn us with Your Word when we begin to sin or think it in our hearts or put wicked disobedience into motion!  Remind us of our promises, our vows and our word we pledged to You, in Jesus Christ I pray, Amen 🙏🏽 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

It is NEVER too late to turn away from committing sin and from repenting and seeking forgiveness, redemption, reconciliation and restoration. NEVER!!!🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

Woe To The Wicked

Isaiah 3:11 ~ “Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, For what he deserves will be done to him.”

Satan thought he had you! The devil and his wicked minions tried to destroy you. Rob you of your peace. Break your heart. Steal your joy. Crucify you with each lie they spread, deceitful words, mindgames, false witness, adulterous acts. Destroy your home. Or cause you to lose your mind. 

But Satan and his helpers didn’t count on your faith. Your fortitude. That you’re a Prayer Warrior. A child of THE Most High. The Almighty God saved and sanctified. A true believer and follower of Jesus Christ. That your Father sits High and looks low. That He will punish those who hurt you. Those that used and abused you. Those that tricked and deceived you. Cheated you, stole from you, robbed you of your peace, joy and health. For surely as the Son Rose Up from the grave and God the Father raises the sun daily, your enemies will come to know God’s vengeance. They shall be your footstools. They will not escape God’s wrath for He punishes the wicked. 

“The wages of the righteous is life, The income of the wicked, punishment.” ~ Proverbs 10:16

Brother or sister-in-Christ, we have a duty as the redeemed of The Lord to warn both the saved and the unsaved of God’s penalty for their wickedness, lest their blood be on our hands. 

“”When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.” ~ Ezekiel 3:18

But if they won’t hear you, shake the dust off your feet, pray for their repentance and keep moving forward toward the high calling of Christ Jesus, lest their sin(s) corrupt or infect you. For what does righteousness have to do with unrighteousness…NOTHING!

God is not mocked and no wickedness or sin goes unpunished. 

Rebuke their sins and the demons attached to them. Keep your hands clean and empty your mind of their worldly wickedness and get ready for your blessings from God in the 2020 New Year, Amen 🙏🏽 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

Clean Hands

Focus Scripture:  Ezekiel 3:18! Remember never be afraid to speak God’s truth to anyone, regardless of race, color, creed, or ‘faith’ or age. The people perish for lack of knowledge. We who know what is right in the sight of The Lord and fail to speak God’s truth so as to please man, have that sinners blood on our hands. If they refuse to hear you, you planted the seed. Shake the dirt off your feet and keep marching towards Jesus! 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

A Prayer For God’s Movement In Your Life

The ‘rod of an almond tree’ is used as an emblem of promptitude in this holy writ. God will waste no time to fulfil His promises of Possibilities!

The Importance Of Being In Covenant With God

The Importance of Being In Covenant With God

There is no greater bond in life than being in Covenant with God. It is our connection to Him and His to us. We receive it freely upon our salvation and reconciliation unto The Father. For those that marry they also enter a marriage Covenant with God making the union between God, the bridegroom and the bride. We also enter into Covenant with God to be guardians over His children that He entrusts into our care to raise them up in full knowledge of The Lord and to show them The Way as we are to both live AND model Christ-like behavior everyday. 

A Covenant relationship is one where we enter into a commitment or agreement with another or others. In The Bible when God enters into Covenant with us His promises to us are clear. 

“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.”

Deuteronomy 7:9

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Deuteronomy 31:8

We also adopt and commit to this same pledge towards Him to hold fast to His Word, to never abandon our faith, do trust God and obey His Word and precepts. To honor and give Him honor and praise as He blesses and empowers us, even when He corrects us. All that God does for us or allows to happen is for our good as He burns off the sin that corrupts the soul and refines us for His purpose. You see, God cannot use us when we walk fully in sin. When we choose to do evil towards one another, mistreat or abuse one another, harbor ill-will, lie, cheat, steal, covet, rob, fornicate or commit adultery for all is sin and God rebukes sin and the workers of sin. Sin breaks The Covenant relationship with God in all areas of our lives. It is our sins that Christ died for as the ultimate blood sacrifice and to lay a path of reconciliation for us back into God’s Love!  For us so to continue sinning, after repentance, makes a mockery of that selfless act, breaks Covenant and sets us back on a path to damnation. They crucify Christ again. We cannot claim ignorance to God’s Word, especially those who profess and proclaim it but in their lives parse out what Scripture of The Word they choose to adhere to. Know this…

“And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him”

1 John 2: 3-4

“For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses.”

Hebrews 10:26-28

“But when a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice and does the same abominations that the wicked person does, shall he live? None of the righteous deeds that he has done shall be remembered; for the treachery of which he is guilty and the sin he has committed, for them he shall die. “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ Hear now, O house of Israel: Is my way not just? Is it not your ways that are not just? When a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice, he shall die for it; for the injustice that he has done he shall die.”

Ezekiel 18:24-26

A Covenant with God is the most important bond you will ever have. As I wrote earlier it extends into every aspect of our lives, our marriages, our relationships with our children and how we live. 

God is faithful to us. God protects us. God blesses us. God wants us to live a prosperous (this is not monetized) life. God is faithful to us. God corrects us for our good. Most of all, God Loves us. Who would give all this up for selfish gain? For momentary pleasure? To practice idolatry? To disobey God’s Word to suit our own desires? To please others, instead of doing what is right in the sight of The Lord?

My friends…proceed with caution. Evaluate your every action, words and deeds. Stop yourselves before you break Covenant with Our Father. 

You need Him everyday. Stay focused. Keep your eyes on the prize of God’s heavenly calling. Amen 🙏🏽 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

Father God, impart into us the importance of being in relationship/fellowship/covenant with You! Let us not treat it like a passing fad or take it or our salvation for granted. Let us cherish You and those You give us to Love—our spouses, our children, our parents, our siblings and other family and friends in that order. Let us not be disobedient to Your Word. Let us not break or disrespect our Covenants we enter into with You — our adoption into the family of Christ, our marriages, our roles as parents, our roles as church leaders. Correct us when we step afoul and send fellow Christians who live The Word to help us not sin against You, our spouse, children or others in Jesus Christ’s Mighty Name we pray, Amen 🙏🏽 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

Under Demonic Influence

We can’t explain Evil or the Wickedness of man other than to recognize the influence of Satan in their lives and behind their behaviors. 

I pray that if you are under demonic influence that you can release the devil’s hold on you and your life!

Remember God knows all, sees all, knows the desires of our heart, who is driving our demonic actions, when we mock God by willfully disobeying Him and His Word and how in our efforts to please man or woman, we waffle between The Word and the world.

We can’t hide. Our ACTIONS and WORDS reveal who we REALLY are and who we REALLY are following knowingly in our lives.

To serve Satan and listen to his minions means you are not serving God for we cannot serve two masters and God expects us to in all our actions, words and deeds follow our guidebook and do ALWAYS what is right in His eyes, not our own, our spouses or parents or children.

For God is a jealous God and He doesn’t share His Loved ones with Satan.

Choose this day who you will serve!

Father God give us the courage to do what is Biblical, what is right, what is according to Your Word no matter how difficult or hard that it may be. Remind us that there is no suffering in this world or rebuke or punishment that is greater than what Jesus Christ endured as our blood sacrifice for salvation.

If we are doing wickedness, stop us. If we are being cruel, halt those actions in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ.

If we plan divorce or separation. correct us from these unBiblical acts with Your Word that cuts like a two-edge sword. Flood our minds with Your Word, our Covenant vows with you and our spouse so that we are not hypocrites and false prophets and so-called Lovers of The Word, But not doers of The Word.

Intercede in our lives, marriages, relationships, families, children Lord in every situation to root out Satan and usher in Your healing, Loving, restoring light so that we may walk in truth. In Jesus Christ’s Mighty Name we pray, Amen 🙏🏽 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

We Can’t Explain The Wickedness Of Man

“The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.”~ Genesis 6:5-6

Do Not Be Discouraged

Father God, thank You for Your Love. Your protection. Your justification. Your faithfulness. Thank You for making satan’s helpers our footstool and setting a table of feast for us in the presence of our enemies. For we take hope in knowing that You are an all-knowing, all-seeing God and that nothing is hidden from You. We have full confidence that You will avenge us and punish those who seek our demise. Who sought to execute satan’s ultimate plan to kill and destroy us. Yea, BUT God! You will smite our enemies. Crush them under our feet and turn their plots against us into their futures as they do their march to Hell! We bless You God for reigning down Judgement on our enemies. Amen 🙏🏽
