Don’t forget you are a Christian


Hello Everybody! Today, I would like to touch on a subject that I feel led to talk about. For the past few days, the Holy Spirit has been urging me to tell people that “You should never forget that you are a Christian”. It seems like a “duh” comment, but when you really think about it, how many of us forget that this is our identity? The reason I feel I need to bring this topic up is because lately, we forget that “the enemies of God still hate God, and they don’t care for you either” (I got that from Fred Hammond’s song “No Weapon”) 🙂 . Are you still wondering why bad things are happening to you even though you consider yourself a “good” person, are you wondering why your money is getting tight and you’re running low on resources? Are  you still wondering why your family members are acting crazy all of a sudden when things were going well? are you still wondering….?


It’s because you are a Christian. 


Spiritual warfare isn’t something that you switch on and off and can go to sleep when you want to. The moment you identify yourself as a Christian, literally, it’ll seem like “All hell broke loose” because that is when you have enlisted yourself into spiritual warfare with the devil and the battle rages on. It’s ever ongoing, ever-present and if you read your Bible, you would know that the Enemy, the devil is a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. If your enemy doesn’t sleep well at night because he is roaming around seeking to steal, kill and destroy your blessings and your life, then why is it as Christians, we put ourselves on “sleep mode” thinking that nothing bad will happen? The battle that you face in your life is not your physical life itself, it is a battle against your faith, and faith specifically towards Jesus Christ as Lord over your Life. What you believe in is what you identify yourself with and believing in Christ is a spiritual battle because Jesus didn’t come to save our physical bodies since we will all die one day. He came to save our souls and our spirits and therefore, what you are up against isn’t anything natural, it is a supernatural battle that manifests itself in your natural world.


Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

We cannot afford to be complacent folks. Persecution is real and it won’t go away just because you decide to put your head under the sand. Every challenge you face right now is in light of the fact that 1.) you are a Christian, 2.) you are a Christian, and 3.) you’re still a Christian. Troubles won’t disappear when what you stand for is a threat to the enemy at all times, Not sometimes, ALL TIMES. That is why we must be vigilant, we have to be alert, we have to remain awake and face the fact that there’s nothing new under the sun, and that in this world you will have trouble, but what does Jesus say? He says, “Be of good cheer, for I have overcome the World” John 16:33 .


The World will impress upon you to adopt a different identity or identities, but as Christians, the fact that you chose Christ, you have made Him become part of your Identity. We can dress in worldly clothes all we want, but if you’ve chosen Christ as your Savior, not even clothes can strip you of that identity. Now, I know that some religious folk will have something to say about that, and I’m not going to argue here about it. Instead, just think of someone like Lecrae. He isn’t dressed up like a typical church person in a suit and yet he stands firm in his belief and is outspoken about his identity as a Christian in the music industry. We can’t limit God with how and who He chooses to use to make an impact on the world by embracing Christ as part of their identity. Stop putting God in a box, God can use a rapper as much as He can use a basketball player, an actor or lawyer, etc to do His will. The whole point is, no matter what your dressed in, if Christ is part of your identity then you shouldn’t forget that you are a Christian. 


For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the worldour faith.


You are Born of God and that is also a threat to the World as we know it. Because as it says in 1 John 5:4, that those that are born of God have the ability and the authority to overcome the things of this world. You do this on the basis of your FAITH. What you place your faith in will determine on what basis you will choose to either overcome or be subdued by the systems of this world. If you choose Christ as your standard, you can overcome, and have overcome; however, if you choose the world as your standard, you are subdued and lack identity because the world’s definition is always in a state of flux.There is no fixed standard when you choose to identify with fads, with what’s “popular” (at the time), and with what’s “cool” and “widely accepted”. Just because something is widely accepted doesn’t make it “right” nor “Christ-like”. If you choose Christ as your identity, then recognize that the Faith you have, is Jesus Personified. Jesus already overcame the world and therefore, you share the same identity as Him by being an overcomer of the systems of this World. He is the standard to your identity. The heart of Jesus remains unchanged toward you and everybody else in the World.  He came that we would have life and life more abundantly (John 10:10). The World may change its heart towards you and spit you out countless times, but Jesus is the same Yesterday, Today and Forever. Therefore, you must remain secure about your identity in Him as a Christian.


John 10:10

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

You cannot afford to be having an “identity-crisis” as it were. If you read your Bible, you will already know that Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the World.


You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.


Everything regarding your Identity is based on what you KNOW about yourself as a Christian. If you didn’t know the few scriptures that I’ve just mentioned in this post or have just remembered a few of them and not because you have been actively meditating on them for yourself,  then you’ve got to ask yourself, how much of your identity as a Christian have you embraced? Do you KNOW who you are in Christ?


Contrary to “popular” opinion, “What you don’t know can hurt you”. 

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.


The biggest tool used against Christians in today’s world is Ignorance. What people don’t know can hurt them. If you don’t know your authority, your ability, your purpose in life, your God, and your salvation, you truly are a lost person. If you don’t know something, then pursue knowledge actively. Laziness and complacency attracts poverty and destruction. If you want to avoid strife in your life, then get to know your God more, and learn more about what He says about you. I don’t have to tell you what to wear, or what to do when all that information is in the Bible. The question is, are you even reading it? Are you simply waiting for a Sunday service to get your Word fix? If you are, you are being Lazy, and you truly don’t know what battle you are facing right now.


Have I offended you? GOOD, because you need to be offended in order to face reality my friend. The Devil doesn’t play, and neither should you by playin’ around. Go back to the source of your Salvation which is in Jesus Christ and read the Word of God (the Bible) to understand what the Word says about you. You have to know how God defines you, rather than remain ignorant and accept any definition that the world has to offer about you. Ignorance is not bliss…ignorance is a curse.


Your God-given identity is not wrapped up in material things, it is a spiritual identity that takes shape in various shapes, sizes and colours since God created each one of us uniquely and we are all said to be Fearfully and Wonderfully made. We seriously haven’t got time to criticize other people prejudicially when Jesus tells us to “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34-35) . Put your biases aside towards other people and focus on understanding your OWN identity rather than poking fun at another person’s identity. That’s just nonsense. When we bicker amongst our fellow brothers and sisters criticizing them on superficial things like their attire, their hair, their skin, the accents, etc, the devil laughs at us because he knows that people are acting like fools if they are busy making fun of their brothers and sisters. It tells the enemy that you simply can’t identify that you are making fun of God at the same time when you do that so STOP IT. 


I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.


This topic on knowing who you are as a Christian is a Sermon all by itself. I could go on and on, but I just wanted to touch base and let you know that what I felt led to capture in this post today is this message that the Holy Spirit has been urging me to tell people for a while now. And that is,

DON’T FORGET YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN!!!!
I can’t emphasis this enough, but that is the main message so think about it today and ask yourself who do you identify yourself with? Is it God, is it some pop singer? an idol? who are you and who or what defines you? Do you even know who you are? Think about it SERIOUSLY.

I have a song here by Adia ft. Jessica Reedy called Behind Enemy Lines. This song has been in my spirit for a while and I pray that it blesses your spirit today as you contemplate on what it means to have Christ as part of your Identity. God Bless You Everybody!!!!

God says “Lean on Me”


Hi Everybody,

Right now, I feel like I need to lean on God for His help with the things that I cannot do. We can work by might and power, but the Spirit of God always urges us to seek His face for what He can do for us when our strengths and abilities are limited. God is limitless…We serve a limitless God and in knowing this, we must learn what it means to have faith in a limitless God. I know for myself that each day I see amazing things that the Lord has done for me or others by His limitless grace. The faith I have in myself is limited if God is not in the picture. We can quote scripture and claim that “we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us”, however, this strength that we receive comes from our Faith to believe that God is able to be whatever we need Him to be in our lives. He is a God with many names in our human minds, the “I Am that I Am” (Jehovah), and this same God is the God of the Impossible, the God of no limits, the God that supersedes our own understanding, the God of miracles, the God who is the author and finisher of our Faith.

Nothing is Impossible for those that believe. We always want God to trust us with things that we desire, but we have to learn to trust Him in return.

God is not Deaf, not mute, not lame, not sick, not broken, not incomplete, not empty like some of us are… He is completely God and we need Him to make us whole again since we are all incomplete without Him in our heart. He can restore all that is missing in our lives, we just have to lean on Him and trust that He can do this for us if we just believe.

The Question is: “Do you believe?”

I have here two Songs by William McDowell that I love, one called “In” and the other called “I won’t go back”. These songs minister to me and I pray that they bless your spirit today. God bless you everybody!

The Fifth Cup


Happy Sunday everybody!

I know I haven’t written much of anything for quite a while…but I will get back into the habit soon. I found this awesome video that will minister to you today called The Fifth Cup by Dan Stevers. It is a definite must watch. I feel stirred in my spirit as of late and feel like there is a need to emphasize the power of the blood of Christ.

Victory is our birth right when we decide that we are a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Our language must reflect that birth right. Even in the face of adversity, the language that God only knows is the voice and the sound of Triumph spoken by His children who live by Faith and not by sight (Psalm 47:1; 2 Corinthians 5:7). The blood covers all sins, all mistakes and everything that is in the past because the Blood is God’s whiteout for our past transgressions. Once our mistakes and our past sins are blotted out, we only can look forward to a clean slate as our future (Acts 3:19). Today, focus on the future rather than dwelling on a past that is already erased by the Blood of Jesus Christ.

Acts 3:19

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord

 

God is the author and finisher of your future, so believe in Him today rather than remain trapped by yesterday’s coulda, woulda, shoulda, but didn’t. The past is over, the time is NOW to move forward with God guiding you into your tomorrows. When a runner runs, they never look back because they are fixing their eyes on the prize which is at the finish line.

Set your eyes on the prize and finish the race. Consider this, that since Spring is the Season of Renewal, your best is yet to come, but you don’t have to necessarily wait for it, you can run towards it if you just believe.

God is looking for barrier breaking impossible faith. Do you want to reach that level? I know I do, however, it will take work, so work your faith out and see God move.

Philippians 3:12-14 (NKJV)

Pressing Toward the Goal

12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Stay blessed everybody and enjoy the video!

The Power of Belief: “I think, therefore it is, and so shall it be”


Faith Is

Hi Everybody,

The Power of Belief is more powerful than speech because everything created began with a thought before it was spoken into motion.

Did you know that you were first thought of before you were created?

imagesCAIDMM6RJeremiah 1:5

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

We were all in the mind of God before He even spoke the world into motion.  He knew how we would look like before we were created. We were part of God’s imagination before we became His manifested creation. We can never know the mind of an artist until they translate their thoughts and ideas into something tangible, into something we can see and experience just like how you can never know the mind of a writer until they put their thoughts into writing so that you can read to understand their thoughts and ideas that are translated into words written on paper.

The Lord has been showing me how incredible we as people really are.  In the Word we are described as “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made” (Psalm 139:14) and even though this is true, as Sons and Daughters of the Most High God, we still struggle with an inferiority complex. We still don’t know who we are in Christ Jesus because we simply do not believe in God’s Word and what He says about us.

God Thinks, therefore I AM a Child of God created in His Image and Likeness.

How many of us really believe that?

Did you know that Miracles are a substance created from Hope that is rooted in Faith that comes from the thinker who decides to simply BELIEVE?

When you believe something is…it becomes your reality.

God has been speaking to me about guarding your mind as you build up your Faith. What you believe is what you become. It is important to guard your mind because even though there is power in spoken words, those spoken words first come from the heart of the thinker who believes in what they are saying.

imagesCA91MCEAProverbs 23:7

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
 
Whatever philosophy that you hold onto as Truth, inevitably becomes your reality if that is what you choose to BELIEVE.
 
So the question is: “What do you believe?”. Whose report do you Believe Do you believe in the Report of the Lord?
 
I believe that in the present time, we have to prepare our hearts to believe that what may seem impossible to us can become possible if we put our Faith and Trust in the right place which is in God’s Hands. If you believe in your heart that whatever you have need of  from the Lord and believe that God is able to meet that need, your thoughts will translate your faith into something that will become a tangible reality. If you believe that you are healed, your healing shall become so according to the proportion of your Faith. If you Trust God to break the bondages of poverty, sickness, divorce, abuse, addictions or whatever need you have of the Lord, and believe that He is able to break the chains and these reoccuring patterns of curses operating in your bloodline/generation, then your freedom will become your reality if you just believe that God is able. When you allow doubt to enter into your mind….that is when your belief system is crippled. Negative thoughts prevent people from seeing and receiving miracles because miracles are birthed from Faith that is rooted in ones belief.
 
thomasSome people have a “Doubting Thomas” spirit that needs to see things in order to believe”. Thomas was one of the disciples who needed to see the physical manifested resurrection of Jesus and touch his wounds as proof in order to believe that Jesus did in fact rise and is risen from the dead in fulfillment of the scriptures.
 

John 20:24-25

[ Seeing and Believing ]24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
 
Thomas did not believe in the miracle of Christ’s resurrection until he could perceive things with his own eyes. This is something to take note of because he totally missed his chance for his miracle that would transform his destiny just because of his doubt. Before meeting Thomas, the other disciples met Jesus and were commissioned to become apostles while Thomas was not there with them to witness this great miracle of Jesus’ Resurrection. The Lord Jesus breathed on the disciples who believed and they ended up being the ones who received the fire of the HOLY SPIRIT.
 

21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them,Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

What you receive from the Lord is attached to your level of Faith and Belief.

Thomas missed his chance to receive the Holy Spirit in this way just because he was stubborn in his DOUBT.

This event spoke volumes to me because it tells me that we need to have an already built-in expectation of Faith in order to receive a miracle. If you prepare your heart and choose to believe, you will see what you believe before it even happens. Those who doubt do not prepare to receive and therefore, it is no suprise that when a miracle does occur even in their midst, they that doubted often are the ones who miss out on their blessings.

So How Do We Go About Preparing for a Miracle? 

“How does one prepare for a storm?”

Sometimes weather forcasters tell us to prepare for hurricanes and other types of weather. You’ll have some people the will hear the report and believe in the report and will act on what they believe by preparing to stock up on food, boarding up and reinforcing their houses and whatever property they have to ensure that they are secure before the storm hits.

What was demonstrated here? FAITH IN ACTION.

The people first hear the report, believe in the report and act on it by preparing for what they believed in.  Wisdom is also demonstrated by those that don’t yield to doubt and hold on to Faith. Such people don’t need to see the storm in order to know that they need to prepare for it before it hits.

At the same time, we will have people that will hear the same report and will choose not to respond to it simply because they do not believe in the report of the weather forecasters.  They will choose not to prepare for it because in their mind they think the storm is highly unlikely to hit them and even if it were to hit, they will be convinced that it wouldn’t necessarily affect them or create real damage. Such people and their DOUBT causes them to miss out on the opportunity to prepare for the storm. By the time the storm hits, it is already too late to prepare to shield yourself for the onslaught that the winds bring as damage ensues from the rage of the storm.

This analogy is the same for miracles. 2Cor5-7

Just because you don’t see the storm doesn’t mean it won’t hit. A gentle wind can turn into a furious toronado filled with power given the amount of time and pressure required to gather momentum. If you are warned before hand to prepare for a storm, you will be prepared to handle what it brings if you respond to the report. However, for those who ignore such reports because of their heavy-seated doubts, they end up potentially being robbed of their chance to preserve their belongings as everything is taken away by the storm.

In the same way, those that believe in a miracle are the ones who prepare to receive one when they choose to BELIEVE IN THE REPORT OF THE LORD.  If you doubt God, you won’t receive your miracle because you failed to prepare your heart to build up your faith so that you can believe in what He has for you.

Belief in God is required in order to receive your miracle. It’s as simple as that.

Seeing is not believing, believing is seeing.

You have to prepare your heart so that it is unwavering in order to receive a miracle. Undaunted faith releases that which you hoped to receive. If you allow room for doubt, you will miss your blessings. I sense that the Lord wants people to prepare their hearts to believe so that we can receive that which we hoped for as the rain of miracles will rain down in due season.  If you don’t believe, you won’t receive and you will miss opportunities just because you didn’t prepare your heart and build your Faith. The time is NOW to prepare your heart and build your faith because the latter rain is going to be greater than the former.

So People of God…. Pursue to Build up your Faith in order to see the tangible manifestation of your miracles that God has waiting for you. Confess your doubts and ask God to give you more Faith. The more faith you have, the greater the miracle that will be released; however, God is searching for mustard seed Faith in the Body of Christ because there is such a stronghold of unbelief that is locking up people’s miracles. Be encouraged and seek God to increase your Faith, today! God bless you everybody!

Focus on the Greater Within You


 

Hi Everybody!

You must be wondering what’s up with the title today? You know that verse of Scripture that says:

1 John 4:4
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

What does that mean exactly?

When you choose Christ as “the Way, the Truth and the Life(John 14:1; John 14:6) in the process of our Salvation, You allow Him to enter into your heart as you give permission to allow the Holy Spirit to transform your old ways of thinking and doing things to become a new creation in Christ. We are all new creations in Christ when we accept Him as Lord and Savior; however, in our walk, we determine how great He is in us as we choose how far we are willing to follow Jesus in His way, in His Truth and in the path that He leads us to eternal Life in Him, with Him, and through Him.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

The question of “How Great is our God?” can only be determined on an individualistic basis based on how much we have cultivated building a relationship with Him in our lives. Someone only becomes great in our hearts when we are in relationship with them built on a foundation of Trust, Faith, and Belief.

Ask yourself these questions:

How much do you Trust Jesus?

How much Faith do you have in Jesus?

How much do you Believe in Jesus?

The measure of these things determines how great He is in you.

Jesus overcame the world for us (John 16:33). We can only overcome the world when we have Jesus Christ inside of us who is the hope of Glory (Romans 5:2; Colossians 1:27). I believe that as Christians we have to pursue the Greatest of the Great so that by one mere look at you, it is evident that you are Christian. The light that comes from you, illuminates that which is already inside of you which is the message of Jesus Christ.

How great is the light of Jesus’ Word shining in you, through you and around you?

When we embrace ideas that contradict the light of God’s Word, we become more like the world that knows no light (darkness = ignorance) and the Jesus in you gets shelved to the back corner in the basement of your heart until He is completely forgotten; or worse, thrown out of your life completely. When we forget our Savior, when we forget our Lord Jesus by our own choice, we then allow something else to become greater within us, and if it is not Jesus, then you’ve got to ask yourself, Who has taken His place within our hearts?”

If Jesus is not on the throne-room of your heart, who is seated there instead? It is possible to hold an idol to be greater than our God which opens doors to demonization and other problems and that is why we must hold fast to the Truth and not allow room for deception or anything to replace the greatness of our God in our lives.

2 Thessalonians 2:13
[ Stand Fast ] But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you by the Spirit and belief in the truth for salvation through sanctification ,

1 Thessalonians 5:20-22

20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.

2 Corinthians 10:5
casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

So Today, focus on what is the Greater that is inside of you?

If you have shelved Jesus in a far place from your heart or have completely abandoned Him in your life, then repent and seek God’s forgiveness for it and reconcile your heart back to His love for you today. Jesus loves you even when you don’t love Him in return. Jesus believes in you even when you have stopped believing in Him. Jesus has faith in you even when you have denied Him. Jesus wants an intimate relationship with you, even when you have divorced your heart from Him. Jesus still wants you even when you think He doesn’t because “He will never leave you nor forsake you” even when you have forsaken Him (Hebrews 13:5). Allow Him to take the throne-room of your heart and let Him become Greater in your life.

“How do I make Him greater in me?” you ask?

By studying His Word (The Bible), by living out what you believe by Faith, and by demonstrating Jesus’ love for you and for other people through your actions, thoughts and deeds. It takes Faith to acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the greater One that is within you than he that is in the world. Put away the things that you once exalted before God and seek the things of the Kingdom of God to reside in you. You can do this by renouncing those things that you once made greater in your life than the Christ in you the hope of Glory. God is an awesome God and He is the Greater that should reside inside you when you worship Him daily and make Him a priority in your life. Food for thought.

I have two songs here by 21:03 called Cold World and Done. Totally love these songs. May they minister to you today.

God bless you everybody!

The Jesus Creed


Hi Everybody!

I know that for those who are Catholic you maybe familiar with the Apostle’s Creed which says.:

I believe in God,the Father almighty,Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen

I was born Catholic and believed these words to be an awesome prayer out of all the prayers I used to do in the Catholic Church. Although I’m no longer Catholic since I now attend a non-denominational church, I still find it to be a powerful statement of faith. Today, I found a video called The Jesus Creed. As disciples of Christ it is important to see what our Lord Jesus Christ finds to be the important features of our Faith in Him. Enjoy the Video and God Bless you Everybody!

  

The Faith Movement – Gospel of Truth


Hi Everybody!

I wasn’t sure if i was going to have a devotional today or not but after seeing a clip on youtube I think I will.

Why did I entitle it “The Faith Movement- Gospel of Truth”.   Faith is a movement. When you walk in the Spirit, you walk by Faith. Faith is an Action. It says in the Word of God that the Just shall live by Faith(Habakkuk 2:4;  Romans 1:17;Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38) and that we ought to walk by Faith and NOT by Sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). Faith is indeed a movement that is taken when we operate in the reverential Fear of the Lord. Faith has the power to save an entire household whereas unbelief has the power to destroy a nation. Unbelief is NOT a movement; it is a decision to remain in ignorance.

When you look at Noah, He built the Ark in the Fear of the Lord and his entire household was saved…but for those that ridiculed him and laughed at him, they were destroyed in the flood as a consequence of their UNBELIEF.

Hebrews 11:7
By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.

In the same way Moses operated in the reverential Fear of the Lord and saved a Nation out of the bondage of Egyptian slavery. For those that grumbled after-the-fact while walking towards God’s promised land, when it came time to enter into the land, the generation that grumbled during the 40-year journey were killed off because of UNBELIEF. Faith takes you to the destination hence Destinies are tied to FAITH. Unbelief aborts DESTINY and DESTINATIONS.

Faith preserves, Faith heals, Faith restores, Faith Builds, but Unbelief does the opposite since all it does is destroy everything in its path.  In knowing this, it is important that we learn to leave no room for doubt to creep into our lives (especially our minds) knowing that the end result is utter devastation.

Faith is a Movement. Unbelief halts and aborts this Movement.

Unbelief is a decision to remain ignorant and promotes stagnancy which keeps people bound up in the first place.

Notice that in Hebrews 11:7 it also mentions that because Noah was moved with godly fear to operate by faith, he saved his entire household and became and Heir of righteousness which is based by his level of FAITH. To be an heir of righteousness you must always oprate by FAITH. This isn’t an option, it’s a mandatory requirement in the Kingdom of GOD because we are joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. Our Faith demands that we are moved by the direction of the Holy Spirit.

Faith requires ACTION and obedience to be moved by the HOLY SPIRIT.

2 Peter 1:21
for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

Unbelief seeks to cap you with lovely friends called Fear, Depression, Hatred, Envy, Self-pity and Pride. We cannot afford to be bound by Unbelief as Children of God.

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

So Today, ask yourself, What moves YOU? Are you driven by Faith or are you capped by unbelief? What you believe in determines whether you are walking in the Spirit or just standing still in the Flesh.  Seek God to help you develop your FAITH MOVEMENT and walk with the Gospel of TRUTH as your guide to Faith.

I have here two videos to encourage your FAITH MOVEMENT. May it minister to you today. Have a blessed Day Everybody!

Faith on a Wire – Believe and have FAITH


Hi Everybody!

Today I have an interesting video for y’all to watch. Check it out.

 

It’s amazing isn’t it? When God demonstrates His goodness to us time and time again, it should make our Faith stronger in Him and yet there is always that presence of doubt left in our minds because of unbelief.

What makes us doubt God’s love for us? What must He do to get our attention and believe that He loves us unconditionally? Like Blondin, Jesus time and time again throughout His ministry on Earth, demonstrated the Father’s love for us through workings of Miracles, Delieverance, Healings, Signs and Wonders and yet people could not believe He was the Messiah. He even hung on a tree and shed His blood for all of our sins as His greatest expression of His love  for us and yet people still doubt the Father’s love for them to this day.

It’s one thing to believe…but it’s another to have Faith. There is a small difference between believing in something and having faith in something. We can believe that Jesus is God and yet not have faith in the fact that the Lord Loves us. It’s a strange contradiction but You must have Faith and believe that God Loves You. The Devil is a liar and will cause you to mill around in self-pity and self-condemnation that will separate you from the Love of the Lord and that is why you must remember the TRUTH in that there is no condemnation in Christ. Christ died to set you free! Believe in that TRUTH and have Faith that Whom the Son sets free is free indeed!

Today be encouraged…no matter what you’ve done, no matter what sin committed, Jesus loves you unconditionally, otherwise the Father would not have sent His Son Jesus to die for all of us if that were not true. Jesus forgives us 70×7 times over for our sins, faults, failures, mistakes no matter what depth or measure of sin. Jesus’ Blood covers all sin because He forgives us so we are forgiven. Believe in that TRUTH. Remember that the devil is a LIAR!

God Loves YOU and his Mercy Endures forever! Be blessed today and be encouraged!

I have a song here to bless your heart today from Kari Jobe called You are for Me.
