Knowing Love

Knowing Love

God flipped the script when He send Jesus. Jesus’ coming was personal and inviting for the whole world. The World has been cursed by sin. I believe that’s why all over the New Testament we are encouraged to bless and curse not. Ephesians 3:19 “Knowing the love of God that surpasses all knowledge” There is no greater love than Jesus’ love. My mother hurt me real bad, God’s love is greater. Jesus’ loving sacrifice for me is far greater than any human love on earth. God’s love is eternal because He is eternal.

The world doesn’t owe me. I owe the world love because of Jesus love for me. God loves me more. God made mommy, daddy, husband wife, family and friends to express love. But God is not an expression of love He is love. Love never fails!!! Father teach me to love as your word commands in Jesus’ name Amen. Loving God leads to loving man.

Finances

Finances

Many times in the past I made plans, and I envisioned prosperity. I saw myself planning like Paul sewing seeds the word of God and my execution as Apollos water the seeds. It’s not about the planting or watering; it’s all about God giving the increase. it’s all about my Father’s will and purpose. My Daddy gives increase and raises, my daddy causes companies to grow. I am nothing, my work is nothing, but Jesus is everything. All I have is in Christ and all outside of Him will fade away.

Increase comes from my Father, not my skill or ability. That is why I’ve work so hard and haven’t seen results in the area I wanted to see results. I now respect increase and money. Yes money. My Father has all the money in the world and He will give it to me because He wants to I’ll take it with joy of heart. So what about Satan? What about him tricking me with money? What about him being the God of this world and using money to trap people? Satan said he’d give Jesus all the world if he worshiped him. Jesus rebuked him sharply saying it is written “worship the Lord they God and Him only shall we serve” Jesus already owned the world. Adam and Eve were already made in the image of God. Satan is a thief. He uses deception to still.

I’m we are already wealthy and rich in Christ Jesus. His aim is for use to feel other wise. I believe I’m rich because of Jesus.

Noah Movie Review

Noah Movie Review

I watched the 2014 version of Noah and there is much to say.They started creation by saying “in the beginning there was nothing” however the word of God says,

“In the beginning God Created the Heavens and the Earth.” Genesis 1:1

Because of sin, man seeks to forget his origin not find it. It was disappointing to me because the movie portrayed God as being detached from His creation. God didn’t speak to Noah in a dream. He spoke to him audibly. God communicated to Noah. God related to Noah. God comforted Noah.

God is all about His creation: Man. God interacts with us everyday -“In Him we move and have our being” At the end of the movie Noah’s daughter in law asks why He didn’t kill the babies, his response was he felt love. She explained the creator wanted him to use his will to choose life and no kill the babies. Sounds good, but its not true.

God expressed His remorse to Noah. God let Noah know He didn’t enjoy seeing the dead bodies, Next time He would destroy the world by fire and He gave Noah the promise by the rainbow.

  1.  The movie by Noah action showed that man changed God’s purpose because Noah didn’t fulfil the duty by allowing his family to be the last on earth.
  2. It denied the second judgement to come, when God will destroy the world by fire.

The movie wasn’t an adaptation, it was heresy. Yet God loved us so much He sent His Son Jesus to die for us. God will always be in control of His creation. God initiated life. Because He initiated life He guides and directs life. Paul says “the love of God constrains us.” God restrains evil everyday. Whatever evil is allowed to happen a purpose is behind it. When God allowed Jesus to be crucified though innocent, Jesus was purchasing our pardon.

“In the beginning God….

God’s Promise: You are not alone

God’s Promise: You are not alone

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Heb 13:5)

I woke up this morning with that word on my mind I’ll not leave you or forsake you. What a promise; the promise of His enduring presence. Then I thought how is that?

(Isa 57:15) For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

God live in the high heavens and He also lives in my trampled heart that He is continually repairing.

That’s a promise to remember!!!

There is a First Thing

There is a First Thing

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Mat 6:33)

This thought came to me this morning. “Seek ye first” The Kingdom of God is not the only thing I seek but it should be the first thing. Decisions I made in the past was for the kingdom to be the only thing I promote seek in life. I remember I-hop have a Jesus program for business owners. In life there is a #1 therefore there is a number 2, 3 priority.

It has set me free to learn this, because life is coming into a better perspective. I call it “Divine Order”. When I put first things first I’ll begin to see the additional things added in this life, because I have life in Christ already.

Spirit words in layman terms.

Divine: What God would like for you
New Dimension: Another perspective on life in life, a transition in thought process.

In Loving Memory of Maya

In Loving Memory of Maya

April 4, 1928 to May 28, 2014

Maya Angelou was born Marguerite Annie Johnson in St. Louis, Missouri. Her parents divorced when she was only three and she was sent with her brother Bailey to live with their grandmother in the small town of Stamps, Arkansas. In Stamps, the young girl experienced the racial discrimination that was the legally enforced way of life in the American South, but she also absorbed the deep religious faith and old-fashioned courtesy of traditional African American life. She credits her grandmother and her extended family with instilling in her the values that informed her later life and career. She enjoyed a close relationship with her brother. Unable to pronounce her name because of a stutter, Bailey called her “My” for “My sister.” A few years later, when he read a book about the Maya Indians, he began to call her “Maya,” and the name stuck.

At age seven, while visiting her mother in Chicago, she was sexually molested by her mother’s boyfriend. Too ashamed to tell any of the adults in her life, she confided in her brother. When she later heard the news that an uncle had killed her attacker, she felt that her words had killed the man. She fell silent and did not speak for five years.
Maya began to speak again at 13, when she and her brother rejoined their mother in San Francisco. Maya attended Mission High School and won a scholarship to study dance and drama at San Francisco’s Labor School, where she was exposed to the progressive ideals that animated her later political activism. She dropped out of school in her teens to become San Francisco’s first African American female cable car conductor. She later returned to high school, but became pregnant in her senior year and graduated a few weeks before giving birth to her son, Guy. She left home at 16 and took on the difficult life of a single mother, supporting herself and her son by working as a waitress and cook, but she had not given up on her talents for music, dance, performance and poetry.

With the guidance of her friend, the novelist James Baldwin, she began work on the book that would become I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Published in 1970, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings was published to international acclaim and enormous popular success. The list of her published verse, non-fiction, and fiction now includes more than 30 bestselling titles.

Jesus’ Approach to Discipleship

Jesus’ Approach to Discipleship

Jesus’ method of discipleship was hands on. It takes confidences and trust to do discipleship as Jesus did it.

Observations of Jesus’ Approach

1. He recruited regular untrained men.
A number of His first disciples were fisherman. On was a tax collector. Jesus went as far as to say “you cannot put new wine in old wineskins”

2. On site training
When Jesus called the disciples they didn’t have a class. Everyday life and circumstances were their class room. The Pharisees had their study sessions etc. Jesus said “foxes have holes but the son of man has no where to lay his head”

3. Empowerment
Jesus immediately transferred authority and power to the disciples. The 72 disciple came back in awe of the power they had over demons etc.

4. Fellowship
The disciples were always together as a group. With Jesus instructing them

The aspect of Jesus ministry that interest me is the release of power and authority. The disciple were never trained in deliverance. They never took a class. Jesus gave them instructions and told them to go and they went. Jesus was given the Holy Spirit without measure. He was God incarnate. Yet He did have the need to control every disciple or hoard His spiritual power. Jesus released it right away.

In my opinion as men we need room to grow an learn. God give us authority and sets of free to become to be. The first disciples did not become apostles in a safety net.

We are not living in the same time frame, however principle remain the same. Relinquish authority to others. It takes trust. That’s what God did with Adam and Eve. He didn’t run to Adam and Eve and said straight way don’t listen to the serpent.

We are all made in the image of God and we all need a sphere of influence to operate. Because of the fall man has wanted to control everything including other men, but that was not God’s intent. Each person is made with unique treats and gifts specific for the purpose and place in the world. God’s intent is harmony.

Yes there is authority. God authority is without oppression and miss use. Jesus said as the Father has given you a Kingdom, so I give you a Kingdom. In God’s Kingdom he nurtures everything to grow and bear fruit. So shall it be in my life in Jesus’ name.

God’s Intent One

God’s Intent One

Have you ever asked the a person if they Christian, and they the response was “No, I’m Baptist”

Jesus’ prayer was “That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.” – John 17: 23

However in Christendom we are divided in sects Pentecostal, Baptist, Seventh Day Baptist, Methodist, Calvinist, Non Denominational, etc. Paul clearly states in Ephesian 4:4-6

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” ONE

I must add I’m not knocking the various Christian Groups, I’m saying let us know and understand we are one in Christ Jesus.

Jesus and the Spirit of Prophecy

Jesus and the Spirit of Prophecy

Before I begin I must repent before the Lord for not believing in His purpose for my life in troubled times. God proves to be the Promise Maker and Keeper. God did this for Jesus our fur runner and High Priest. Jesus said to us “as the Father as sent me so I send you.” John 20:21

Jesus’ life was based on prophesy,

“Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,” Psalm 40:7

Almost every expect of Jesus’ life was found in the Old Testament form the details of His birth to His burial.

Reading scripture in memory of Him during Passover, Holy Spirit opened my eyes to see how the least of mans dealing the trial of Jesus synchronized with scripture as the divine plan unfolded. How many times Peter would demy Jesus to lots being cast for His clothes(Psalm 22:8).

As in onlooker unaware of scripture, events would seem normal, but God’s Sovereignty revealed itself in all things. Where was Satan in all this? Accomplishing evil while God works it out for His God. Satan would have to work contrary to His nature to defeat God. Killing Jesus provided Salvation for the whole world. Keeping Him alive would disannul the promise in Genesis 3:15 of “crushing the serpents head”. Jesus ascended to hell to take “the keys of hell and death” from Satan. Rev.1: 18 Hallelujah!!!

God our Father has a purpose in all things and purpose for all His creation. Scripture encourages us to “…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,” Philippians 2:12. There comes a moment of advancement in the child of God’s life when we need to know which decision to make. Not only that God the Holy Spirit has promised many of his children my gifts and callings and the word tells us” for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” Romans 11: 29. This means God doesn’t change His mind when it comes to giving gifts his children.

We have the opportunity to read about Joseph and Joshua even David their call to greatness. And I’m using Jesus as the ultimate example. There are so many struggles and trials in life the question stands; will God’s prophesies over our lives as His children come through? Yes. God is the Promise Maker and Keeper.

I repented because unbelief almost killed me, but God’s promise kept me alive. I will see the promise. The obstacles we see are our inadequacies. Gideon and Moses saw their inadequacies, however they moved forward in faith, because God is Boss. Wow I fear, because I’ve listened to messages about trusting a big God.

I’m not quite done. “God works in us to do His Good pleasure” Philippians 2:13 there is a work God is doing all His children. Why would God stop working in you and me? Faith comes from the word. Everything went south. Paul says all things work together for good. If Paul had known we would be reading his letters as scripture who knew what he would do differently. He would probably say “lock me up some more don’t let me out of prison I have another lesson to write for centuries to come.”

Paul wrote us words he lived. As he looks from heaven; Its wow that’s why I was locked up so much, so the gentiles across the world have it read I thought I was only writing to Corinth.

Therefore the prophecies over our lives are AMEN. They are many teachings on dreams dying and unfulfilled words. That is not for you as God’s child. Because I’m here to encourage you take your eyes of you place it on God. You will complete the prophecy with your eyes on Him alone.

Jesus’ last words was to His Father, who He could see no more as He died for our sins. My God my God why have you forsaken me. His eyes where on him till He saw Him no more.

Pilate’s Conversation with Jesus

Pilate’s Conversation with Jesus

Pilate asked Jesus, ” are you King of the Jews?” Jesus responded “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”

These words from Jesus spoke volumes because Pilate and many others knew the follow Jesus had. Even the chief priest feared the people if they took Jesus a certain time. Luke 22:2. Why didn’t the people cry out for Jesus to be free this time? Jesus responded to Pilate yes and also He, Jesus testified of truth.

Pilate asked Jesus “What is truth?” Immediately Pilate said he find no fault in Him. Pilate was a man of authority who heard the Truth speak to him. Pilate tried his best to get Jesus off the hook of death “You have a custom to release another…”John 18:39. Pilate was hoping they would take Jesus, instead the people request Barabbas.

Pilate played along again Pilate expressed he found no fault in Jesus. Then the Priest said it clearly Jesus claimed to be the Son of God, which made Him worthy of death.

Pilate didn’t think Jesus was beside Himself. Pilate became more convicted more afraid although in the seat of such power, he was faced to face with Power. Pilate really wanted to let Jesus go. He didn’t ask Him if He was a King this time, but “where are you from.” As if to say which place are you King of.

Pilate thought he had power. Jesus said “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.” John 19:11.

Pilate knew He came across an authority greater than Himself. This King Jesus before him was not seeking sympathy, Jesus wasn’t seeking to be let go. Jesus didn’t want to cut a deal. “Like a sheep before his shearers he opened not his mouth…” Is 53:7 least they might let him go.

Pilate knew He was before the King of Kings. He knew it in his spirit. He tired to let Jesus go.

” The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.”Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.” John 19:21-22

Pilate wrote the truth. The questions stands how do we respond to Jesus today? Should we crucify him or accept and serve Him as King. Let us sanctify they Lord Jesus in our hearts

15 but [a]sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a [b]defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and [c]reverence; 16 [d]and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame. 17 For it is better, if [e]God should will it so, that you suffer for doing what is right rather than for doing what is wrong. – 1 Peter 3:15-17
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
