Ignorant


Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 2 Peter 3:3‭-‬5 KJV

It’s easy to mock and scoff at what you don’t know or understand. It’s demonically inspired to mock and scoff at what you know to be true.

To be ignorant is to have never been taught or to have been taught but to ignore what was taught.

In these last days, many chose to ignore truth. They hear it but reject it so that they can satisfy the dictates of their flesh. 

Don’t be one of them.

We will all stand before the Righteous Judge and answer for our choices.


Crisis


Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV

Our great nation, and the world, is in a cultural identity crisis. Secularism and its “ism” offspring are challenging the right of God our Creator to rule and reign in the hearts of man.

The peace and prosperity of a civilized free society will never be realized outside of submission to God abiding in the heart of its citizens. Only then will individuals esteem others more highly than themselves.

Moality and civility cannot be legislated nor achieved by marches and protests. Only the Spirit of God in the heart of man brings peace.

Choose today whom you will serve. God or the devil, Christ or anti- Christ, morality or immorality, love or hate. Your future depends on your choice.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.   For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.   He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.   And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.   For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.   But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3:16‭-‬21 KJV


Narrow


Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13‭-‬14 KJV

Many say, “All belief systems lead to heaven” or “All gods are the same”. This couldn’t be further from the truth. There is only one way to the one true God.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 KJV

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 1 Timothy 2:5 KJV

Know Jesus – Know God. No Jesus – No God. No Exceptions.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord , choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord . Joshua 24:15 KJV

Start the New Year right.

It’s your choice.


Choose Life

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  Jeremiah 29:11 KJV

You and I have been given the high privilege of choosing our earthly and eternal destiny. God has given every man a free will. He has enabled him to set his course by words of faith that come from the heart.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:  Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV


Choose Today

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord , choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord .  Joshua 24:15 KJV

You and I are living in a time of great apostasy. Much of our society has embraced an evolutionary secular world view where Christianity is vilified. Self determinism exalts itself in the face of the Creator who made them male and female. Confusion and fear are the order of the day.

God, who loves us, calls to His creation daily revealing Himself in so many ways. He yearns for us to turn to Him and accept His betrothal request with a Yes and enter into an eternal covenant with Him. His Holy Spirit calls, reveals, wooes, and convicts of our need of Him.

He awaits our answer with long-suffering patience, refusing to violate our free will. What answer have you spoken from your heart? What commitment will you make? 

As for me and my house, we choose to serve the Lord. 



Blessed to be a Blessing!

Divine Blessing!

How often have you said, “I’m Blessed!” in answer to someone inquiring after your well being? What do you mean? Have you considered what you are really saying?

The word blessed means empowered to prosper and, if you are a Christian, you are blessed by God. You are an inheritor of the blessing of Abraham (Gal. 3:7, 14). In Christ you are empowered to prosper.

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:20 (KJV)

Power is defined as: dunamis = force; specially miraculous power, ability, abundance. Working in us is especially miraculous ability to be blessed (empowered to prosper) in every area of our lives.

Now, more than ever before, God is wanting us to understand His Divine capacity to give to His children. His desire is that we will begin to know Him as the Father that desires to give good gifts to His children (Ephesians 3:14; Jas. 1:17):

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 1:2 (KJV)

This year our Father wants us to be delivered from the poverty mentality that has plagued the Church for two thousand years. He wants to teach us how to receive out of His Divine capacity the riches in glory by Christ Jesus which will result in an over-flow of abundance.Arise! Shine!

We are to Arise & Shine for our Light has come. The glory of the Lord has risen upon us in great manifestation! This is the hour of the Church. All will see Her glory and draw near to Her.

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Isaiah 60:1-3 (KJV)

Many in the Body of Christ have received the riches of the realms of the Spirit (prosperity of the spirit). Many more have received the benefits of physical, mental and emotional healing (prosperity of the soul). Few have been willing to receive the riches available in the realms of finance (prosperity of the material). Why?

Satan, the great deceiver, has sold the Church on the idea that it is an unholy thing to have enough, let alone more than enough. Like Judas he insists that all we have be given to the poor and condemns us as covetous thieves when in truth it is his own covetous greed that is speaking. (Joh 12:4-6)

Yes we should give to the poor! The tragedy is, we cannot in the measure that God wants. How can the poor give to the poor? The poor can only be cared for properly out of the over-flow blessing of the blessed of God.

Arise & Shine! Let God have His way and prosper you in this season of Divine Blessing!
