Oh to Dwell Here Forever!

Hi Peeps!

John 4:24 [Full Chapter]
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

I just had to post this amazing worship song sung by All Nations Worship Assembly Atlanta called Most Beautiful. My God, I was in a place of surrender when I heard this song. The song sounds amazing in surround sound and it just causes you to feel undone when you hear the sincerity in this worship. Sometimes, there comes a place when you’re so filled with gratitude to God that there literally no words to describe how you feel about God. That’s the way I feel right now. God is soooo Good that there literally no words to describe this feeling of His goodness. All you just want to do is give the Lord the highest praise! I pray that as you listen to this song, may in minister to your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

Psalm 99:5 Exalt the Lord our God, And worship at His footstool— He is holy.

Psalm 99:9 Exalt the Lord our God, And worship at His holy hill; For the Lord our God is holy.

Zephaniah 2:11 The Lord will be awesome to them, For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth; People shall worship Him, Each one from his place, Indeed all the shores of the nations.

John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

A Billion Years Ahead…

Hi Peeps!

I just had to post this amazing song that’s in my spirit right now by Trip Lee Feat. Taylor Hill called Billion Years. I just think the if we think of what the world could be like from a billion years from now, where would this world be? I find it interesting that the Bible verse of the day on Biblegateway.com is this:

Romans 14:8 NKJV – For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.

Church – We are the Bride of Christ

If we have eternity with God in mind, 1000 years is like a day to God as much as a day is like a 1000 years if you take a look at this scripture:

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

A thousand years seems like a long time to us, but in actual fact it is not a long time at all. I mean, we are living in an age where we have people born past the year 2000 as being called “Millennials”. I mean that word didn’t even exist until we moved past the fear of the Y2K bug that was supposed to return us back to the stone age … and yet that didn’t happen. So now we have to consider the fact that maybe people will live long enough on Earth for “Billionnials” to be born.

My question as a Christian is what will happen when we hit the billionnial year?

Obviously we won’t live long enough in this world to find out but can you imagine moving past the idea of being a billienial and simply being a believer that has an eternity with Christ Jesus in Heaven? It’s wonderful to want to go to Heaven, because most people want to live there, but what we must do is make our current lives count.

Our current relationship with God is “the day” that is like a 1000 years to God. We need to make each Day count, because each day is accounted for as being equal to 1000 years.

How long has God waited for us to choose Him as the Truth, the Way and the Life?

That is a question I pose to all of us seeking to deepen our relationship with Him. That’s what this song got me thinking about. I pray that as you listen to this song, you will meditate on this question I have posed, so that it makes you ponder about deepening your connection and relationship with God if you especially feel like you’ve drifted far from Him as being your first love. Return to your First Love People! God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

The Light of God’s Word

Hi Peeps!

Today, I wanted to study my Bible and went to Biblegateway.com and saw that this was the Scripture of the day:

Psalm 119:130 NKJV The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.

Isn’t it amazing that the Word of God, gives us light which is often referred to or symbolic of “revelation” because if you can imagine yourself walking in the dark without a flash light, what ends up happening is that you will most likely bump into things and potentially trip over somethings simply because you can’t see. Darkness in this situation is symbolic of “ignorance”, or lack of “illumination” and is also a lack of “revelation” because light always dispels darkness and it also reveals that which remained hidden from your vision. Ask yourself, in terms of having a vision for your life, how much have you spent walking around in ignorance (lack of revelation) simply because you didn’t have all the information (revelation) you needed in order to move forward?

When God reveals the plans that He has for you, He will always do it in such a way that He will always shed light to a situation that remained hidden from you in order to:

  1. Address issues that you may have ignored (whether they are personal issues, or relational issues you have with other people);
  2. To sharpen your discernment so that you can operate with wisdom;
  3. To help you to build and move by faith in any situation even when the instructions He gives you, don’t make any sense;
  4. To help you increase your spiritual giftings to operate at a level that I would classify as above average (if you seek to grow in this area of your life, that is…) as you build a level of intimacy with God that causes you to operate in the realm of the supernatural

I believe that as Christians, we shouldn’t settle for the basic level of Christianity that simply knows how to go to church, get your Word fix, go home and still live a life that is unchanged. The Word of God (The BIBLE), is and will always be Transformational and filled Revelation that it’s not enough to read it without pursuing to receive a revelation through the scriptures that we read that causes us to experience an inner and personal change in our lives and in our character. Many of us know how to quote Scriptures, but do we take a second to actually meditate on what it says so that it sparks in us the need to renew our thinking and change our behaviour so that we can become more like Christ? Are we loving enough, are we compassionate enough, are we humble enough, are we merciful enough….? etc etc….

These are the types of questions that run through my mind on a daily basis when I think about how much I want to function and be more Christ-like in my attitude and in my Character. I want to be so Christ-like in all that I do that a person who doesn’t believe in God will want to know about Him simply because they experienced the love of Christ through my actions.

As Christians, I’ve been wondering how potent is our Faith in God that it brings about transformation to those that don’t know God? How deep is our faith, that our Character speaks for itself, and it’s not something people have to dig through in order to figure out where you stand…? It has to be crystal clear where you stand, so that people know that you aren’t operating in such a way that you’re undercover and in the “closet” about your Christianity because you recognize that we can all still live in this World with other people but not act like we’re of it? DO NOT aim to be hypocritical as a way of life. We have to be so distinct and make a distinction as to where we stand in all that we do even when faced with the threat of being ridiculed by those that may call you a “goodie-two shoes” etc etc. Being a Christian is not easy…so whoever tells you that it’s an easy road, hasn’t really lived the lifestyle for real. Temptations exist around us to thwart us off the road of living a life in right-standing with God. Yes, you may fall sometimes, but confess quickly and strive to get back up again from whence you fell. God will always gladly pick you up from where you fell if you purpose in your heart to continue to follow Him.

Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

John 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

John 12:46 I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.

John 15:19
If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.

Lately, have found myself in situations where I had to distinctly tell people where I stood clearly even if it meant that it would offend someone. Simply declaring “I’m a Christian” shouldn’t be a cause to offend someone, but it does offend when it causes one to feel convicted by where you stand. As the Bible states: The Light shines in the Darkness, but the darkness did not comprehend it (John 1:5 ). We cannot downplay the pressure to compromise your belief system in order to “fit-in” the “World system” is real my friends. I think that as you continue your personal walk with God, you will find yourself tested in this area and this will show you where the level of your Spiritual Maturity is at. If you find yourself compromising just to appear agreeable to the masses, you will have to question how strong are your convictions? Hopefully, they’re strong enough that you aren’t fazed by those that don’t agree with you. Continue to remain as Salt to the Earth and not let anyone water you down so that you can simply blend in with the “Crowd”. Choose to Remain SET APART no matter what, is my message, Amen!

I have this song by Andy Mineo called You Can’t Stop Me! I love how he didn’t let the pigment of his skin stop him form rapping and making music that Glorfies God. Dare to be You in Christ Jesus! I pray that this song blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

Not Today Satan!

Hey Peeps!

I just had to post this awesome track by KB feat. Andy Mineo called Not Today Satan! The song is upbeat and off the hook to me! Sometimes when you’re going through trials and setbacks, there comes a time when you build up a fight in you where you find yourself saying “Enough is Enough! Not today SATAN! NOT TODAY!!!!!”. I think this song speaks to me in that respect. Sometimes you find you mind being attacked with doubt, fear, distractions that cause you to not even think about praying to God for the answers to your situation. All I can say is that no matter what it is… remember God and pray. A day without prayer is like going through the entire day without food. The less we pray, the more malnourished we will become “Spiritually speaking” and the more weaker we become in the faith. The Word of God (The BIBLE) is your daily bread, so I’m going to speak for myself, and try and make an effort to practice daily meditation of God’s Word in my heart and seek not only to simply read from the Word but receive revelation and work out what the Lord reveals practically in my life. I pray that this song blesses you today. It gives me this feeling of I can fight, I can win type of feeling. God has got your back people! God Bless You and enjoy this song. 🙂

Joshua 1:8 [Full Chapter]
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

1 Peter 5:8 [Full Chapter]
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

He Gotcha!

Happy Sunday Peeps!

I just had to post this song by Virtue called He Gotcha to encourage you today. Life is a series of tests and testimonies depending on how you look at your life. Everybody likes prizes but they don’t like the tests life brings in order to get the prize. The prize for us as Christians is us moving towards the upward call of God through Jesus Christ as it is mentioned in Philippians 3:14:

Philippians 3:14 [Full Chapter]
I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

A prize for us can be various things that matter to us…such as a dream job, position, wife, husband, a child, a vacation, an opportunity etc etc. Whatever it is that we deem as a “prize” is what people press forward towards as a goal until they obtain it. There is no guarantee that once you’ve obtained the thing that you desired, that happiness is sure to follow. In some cases, people pursue things with selfish and impure motives which can cause one to lust after other people’s things which can never be a good thing. But then there are those that have a healthy desire to pursue things with pure motivations and intentions, and simply need the guidance that the Lord provides to get the things that they desire in legitimate ways when you first put the desires of your heart in God’s hands through prayer. The key word here is “PRAYER”. Prayer is essential when seeking to satisfy the desires of your heart because you always want to remain walking in the will of God for your life. Many things will pass away in this life, but God’s Word (The Bible) stands firm forever!

Philippians 4:6 [Full Chapter]
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

Daniel 9:3 – Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes

However, with respect to these things, I think that as Christians, we can’t leave God on the back burner of our “plans” if He isn’t at the center of our lives. In the Word of God, it says that we must first seek the Kingdom of God before we go out and pursue anything else if you look at this scripture:

Matthew 6:33 [Full Chapter]
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

The moment you put God first in every area of your life, He will guide you to the things you have need of and the things you desire in legitimate ways by placing the right people in your life to guide your footsteps in the right direction. He will sharpen your discernment and give you supernatural wisdom to pursue things in unconventional ways in order to show you that He is the God that will fight for you and support your cause if you have your heart in the right place.

1 Kings 9:3 – And the Lord said to him: “I have heard your prayer and your supplication that you have made before Me; I have consecrated this house which you have built to put My name there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.

Isaiah 59:21 – “As for Me,” says the Lord, “this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the Lord, “from this time and forevermore.”

Psalm 119:160 – The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.

1 Peter 1:25 – But the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.

Again I say, people like Prizes, but they don’t like the race that they have to run in order to obtain the prizes that the Lord has for us in this life. If you think of an obstacle race, there are hurdles one has to jump over before they get to the finish line. In this life, there will be Trouble (hurdles you’ll have to jump over), but take heart, you will overcome them (jump over each hurdle) and overcome the world and get to the finish line. Remember, that the race you have in this life is not for the swift or for the strong, it is for those that endure until the very end. Don’t look at those that seem to be “making it” in life right now…you don’t know what race they had to run to get to where they are. Looking at someone else poses as a distraction to your own race that you have to finish. SO my message today is focus on your own race and fix your eyes on the prize which is Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your Faith, Amen!

Hebrews 12:2 – looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

When you focus on Jesus as your goal, everything you want in life will be added to you because you’ve maintained the “right focus”. So today, ask yourself, where is your focus? Are you focusing on the right things? You may fall as you run your race, but get back up again and keep pressing forward because God will help you get to your finish line, Amen. I pray that as you listen to this song, may it encourage you today, in Jesus’ Name. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

You Deserve!

Hello Peeps!

I just have to post this song by Virtue called You Deserve! Honestly, this past week has been challenging for me but I can tell you that prayer always changes things. The Holy Spirit has been telling me “Keep asking in this season and you will receive the things that you are asking for”. I have just been doing that. I’ve had issues rise up at work and when I pray and ask for God’s help in a situation that seems impossible, all of a sudden minutes later, things start to work or things that were a no initially, become a yes. Things that seemingly seem impossible to accomplish all of a sudden things start to work to make things happen. You have not if you ask not, so keep asking is my message to you today. Keep asking God to do the seemingly impossible things for you and you will see things happen in ways you cannot even begin to imagine of believe. Sometimes I put a seed offering down (Faith seed) when I’m at church asking God to help me in a situation and literally, I saw this week the Hand of God moving in my situations.

The substance of Your Faith can only increase at the level of your sacrifice.

Hebrews 11:1 [Full Chapter]
By Faith We Understand ] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

How difficult must it have been for Abraham to prove his faithfulness to God by choosing to sacrifice to God his long awaited Son Isaac.

When Abraham sought to sacrifice his long awaited Son Isaac to the Lord to prove his faithfulness to the Lord, and the Lord saw that the level of Abraham’s faith was at the level of giving up what he treasured most, God chose to bless and increase Abraham bountifully because of his heart of faithfulness towards the Lord. Abraham loved God so much that he was willing to sacrifice that which was dear to him to prove it. The thing is, in this life we have many things we treasure, but is it at the level of Abrahamic faith? God didn’t really want Abraham to kill his son, but He definitely wanted to know what was in Abraham’s heart. Sometimes, we put people before God and end up not realizing that our heart is misplaced in our relationship with God. People can’t ultimately make you happy because God is the source of our Joy. However, how many of us truly acknowledge that?

Honestly, I had to question myself on that one. Sometimes, we will be asked of the Lord to do difficult things, but that is when our truth Faith is tested, so my message to you is to be a sober Christian, and remember that where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:21– For where your treasure isthere your heart will be also.

Luke 12:34 – For where your treasure isthere your heart will be also.

I pray that as you listen to this song, you will remain sober, humble and remember that everything we have in this life belongs to God. This also includes our worship. We worship Him in tithes and offerings and with the praises that come out of our mouths, so my fellow Brothers and Sisters, remember, that God deserves all the Glory, all the Power and all the Praise, Amen. I pray that this song by Virtue called You Deserve blesses your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

Psalm 119:7 NKJV I will praise You with uprightness of heart, When I learn Your righteous judgments.

Motivation Thursday: Walk It Out!

Hi Peeps!

Jeremiah 32:17 NKJV – ‘Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.

I just had to post this awesome song by Virtue that’s my current jam right now called Walk It Out. If you want certain things to happen in your life, simply “wishing” for things to happen won’t bring what you desire to your address if you don’t apply work and action to pursue the things you desire. You really have to walk by faith to get the things you seek from God. Take a step of faith. It seems easier said than done which is true, but sometimes people get distracted by the obstacles they see around them that they fail to fix their eyes on the prize. Walk by faith and not by sight.

2 Corinthians 5:7 [Full Chapter]
For we walk by faith, not by sight.

I pray that as you listen to this song, may it pump you up to know that when you decide to walk by faith, nothing can stop you from achieving the thing that you desire to see in your life when you have God on your side. God is more impressed with those that walk by faith than those that simply go by what they see because Faith requires work where as things handed to you on a silver platter require no work at all. So increase your expectations and be driven to walk by faith and not by what others say or by the things that you see that seem to show you a picture that doesn’t aim at the prize of what you desire. Keep your focus on God and you’ll see amazing things happen, Amen! I hope that this song pumps you up today. God bless you Everybody! 🙂

You Changed My Name

Hello Peeps!

I have this amazing song by Jaye Thomas & Laura Hackett Park called Family. It’s amazing that when a child is adopted into a family, they take on the name of the family that they are adopted into. Likewise, when we take on the identity of Christ and become “Born Again” through water baptism to take on the identity as a “Christ-Believer” by becoming a Christian, we change our names in a way in that we have now become adopted Sons and Daughters of the New Covenant of Christ’s blood and have become Sons and Daughters of the Living God. Salvation comes when we choose to believe that Jesus Christ is indeed the Truth, the Life and the Way:

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

Let’s also look at the first chapter of Ephesians:

Ephesians 1 (NIV)

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,

To God’s holy people in Ephesus,[a] the faithful in Christ Jesus:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he[b] predestined us for adoption to sonship[c] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he lovesIn him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he[d] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

11 In him we were also chosen,[e] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.

Thanksgiving and Prayer

15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[f] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church,23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

When you read these Verses of Scriptures, just remember that when you were once far away from God, it didn’t matter what mess you were in or how bad you thought you were that you didn’t think anyone could forgive you let alone God to forgive you. God loves you with an everlasting love that He still wants us to be transformed by the renewing of our mind. Don’t accept the identity that the World labels you… some people may call you a loser, a failure, a dunce, a weakling, a has-been or just a nothing that shouldn’t have even been born. Do not go by the World’s definition of your worth. You are God’s prized possession and a great inheritance. You are worth dying for and worth resurrecting for and that is why God wants us to understand that your worth is not built on how the “World” defines you. It is built on who He has called you to be, and that is to be a Child of God. Remember that Jesus did not go on the cross in vain… He did that for you and me so that we could be part of His Family as Children of the Most High God.

John 1:11-13 (NKJV)

11 He came to His [a]own, and His [b]own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the [c]right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

I pray that as you listen to this song, may it bless your Spirit today. God Bless you everybody! 🙂

There Will Be Victory Here!

Hello Peeps!

Today, is Canada Day and I know that I haven’t written much of anything for the longest time. So much is happening to me right now that I can’t really get into it. All I can say is that whatever I wrote as the prophecy for 2019 is happening to me for sure. So many things are happening that I can’t believe the goodness of God in my life. At the same time, with every good thing there is also warfare but the Lord allows certain things in order to sharpen your discernment for one and to also prepare a way for you to move forward into your next moment of promotion, elevation, and the next level of your life. When the Lord plants you somewhere, it won’t always be comfortable where you are.

Sometimes, you will encounter those that are antagonistic towards you for no “good reason”. I’ve been encountering something like that in my work place with someone in particular, but it’s only because I mentioned I was a “Christian” to them. I know that they already knew I was a Christian without me verbally telling them this…but when I finally said it with my own mouth it was like the word hit them and caused them to be offended once I declared where I stood verbally. The person I was talking to is affiliated with the LGBTQ2+ community and even though I expressed that I respect their decision as to where they stood, it wouldn’t necessarily change where I stood as a “Christian”. I was of the opinion that “Can’t we simply agree to disagree and move on?” but they seemed highly offended with my stance on the issue and didn’t like the fact that I wouldn’t simply go with the flow with their philosophy of life and started to act somewhat haughty and ridiculous towards me that they started to avoid me as well.

Proverbs 16:18 – Pride goes before destructionAnd a haughty spirit before a fall.

The Lord showed me that the person in question lacked self-awareness of their own biases and that the spirit of PRIDE, can cause someone to retaliate in ways you cannot even begin to believe. And as a Christian, we must understand that the ruling spirit of the LGBTQ2+ community is the spirit of Pride. I mean why do you think they call this month of June “Pride Month”. Despite this person’s behavior, the Lord has shown me that as Christians, we must not be reactionary to this behaviour, but rather, we must continue to operate and respond with the Spirit of God’s Love towards these people. It doesn’t matter if they don’t see things your way, continue to love Mercy, act Justly and walk humbly no matter what. And this message isn’t isolated to just this group of people, I’m talking about whoever else you encounter in life. They could be from a different religion, creed, nation etc etc… the message still remains the same; Walk Humbly, Love Mercy and Act Justly no matter what.

Micah 6:8 – He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?

Sometimes the best ways of reaching a person’s heart is through our actions more so than our words. We are known to be Christians by our love so my message to you is be a good representation of God’s love for all people in all that you do, Amen!

I have a song here by Red Rocks Worship called Breakthrough. I pray that this song blesses your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂

You Shine!

Hi Peeps!

I just had to post this song by Christ Tofilon called You Shine. This song sounds amazing in Spanish. In fact, I think it sounds better in Spanish. that I’ll put the Spanish one at the bottom so that you can hear the difference. I love how this song emphasizes how the Lord Shines. The Lord is the Light of the World and a lamp unto our feet. He is the One that directs our paths and makes our ways straight. Think of these following scriptures as you listen to this song.

Numbers 6:25 – The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;

Psalm 119:135 – Make Your face shine upon Your servant, And teach me Your statutes.

Matthew 5:16 – Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Here is the Spanish version called Mas Que el Sol. I pray that this song blesses your spirit today! God Bless You Everyone! 🙂
