A Beautiful Exchange


Hi Everybody, 

I can’t even begin to apologize for the hiatus on my blog. So much has been happening to me since my Grandmother passed away in 2013. I found it really difficult to write but  I want to start back again.

First I just want to give God praise. It’s been a difficult couple of years but with God all things are possible. I’ve been on an emotional roller-coaster ride and have needed to be alone to really hear what the Holy Spirit has been speaking into my spirit. I saturate myself with praise songs and one song that has been playing in my heart right now is called A Beautiful Exchange by Hillsongs.

I’m heading into a 21 day prayer and fast for the month of November. You are free to join me because in this month, my church and I will be dealing with the strongman of UNBELIEF.

The focus of this Strongman is found in Hebrews 3

Hebrews 3 (NKJV)

The Son Was Faithful

Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus, who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was faithful in all His house. For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who built the house has more honor than the house. For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God. And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward, but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.[a]

Be Faithful

Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
In the day of trial in the wilderness,
Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me,
And saw My works forty years.
10 Therefore I was angry with that generation,
And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart,
And they have not known My ways.’
11 So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest.’”[b]

12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called“Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15 while it is said:

“Today, if you will hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”[c]

Failure of the Wilderness Wanderers

16 For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? 17 Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey?19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

I have bolded parts of the scripture for emphasis. We are God’s house and if anything, we must build on a strong foundation called FAITH. Can you imagine that a generation was killed off in the desert that they wondered around for 40 years because they harbored the spirit of unbelief which is what God characterizes as something that can be found in an “evil heart” in verse 12. 

Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Unbelief causes you to abandon God and what God has said about you. Whatever you confess out of your mouth is a direct exposure of what is in your heart. If you harbour doubt in your spirit, you are struggling with unbelief. I know that there are areas in my life that I struggle in my faith, but that is why God emphasizes that we should fight the good fight of faith because he know that the Devil isn’t after your money, your possessions or your life…he is after your faith. The moment you abandon your faith, your life becomes forfeit. 

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
I would like to expand on this because I ministered on this subject yesterday at church, but I just want you all to understand that All things are possible to those that BELIEVE. If you want to travel in that realm of faith, you have to build yourself up in Faith. Faith isn’t instant, you have to build it over time and that is why we must grow from Faith to Faith because the faith of yesterday may not be sufficient for your tomorrows. You need to have faith for tomorrow. This is why God emphasizes that the church He builds isn’t a physical structure that many people build in vain….it is YOU. You are the church that He is building, because His House is known to be a House of Prayer. I have never seen an actual building kneel down and pray, have you? Only people can kneel down an pray. 
Don’t get too caught up in church building projects if the people who are part of that building have a weak foundation of faith.
Seriously, what good is a building if people aren’t strong in their Faith?
I and a few friends of mine, have started to build a church starting last April 2014. Let me tell you that it has been a battle. Some people come, some people go…but those that remain faithful to the vision are not easily swayed nor discouraged because we know that the most important building that God cares about building are His people.
We started in a hotel, and then the hotel refused to give us a place to hold services and then we ended up in my pastors apartment until we believed God for a building. We moved in to the building last Christmas and we had people join and had people leave taking most of our members to build their own thing.
Let me tell you, the devil doesn’t care if we have a church, he just wants to know, are you a Believing church? So we are now heading into a 21 day prayer and fasting for the month of November, seeking God’s face for direction. You are free to join me if you want.
I’ll continue to bring updates in the future. Stay blessed everybody! 😀

What is Church without God?


Hi Everybody!

Happy Palm Sunday! I have here a video to bless your spirit today to make us reflect about this season of Easter/Passover. God is Good and we should be forever grateful that it is because of Easter that we are all made to be a new Creation as Joint Heirs with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Be Blessed everybody and enjoy this video!

Merry Christmas Eve Worship: It’s Not Over!


Merry Christmas Eve Everybody!

I realize that although this is a time of family and fellowship for many of us celebrating the season of Jesus Christ’s birth and life, there are people out there that are going through some hard times in this season of celebration. So this song that I’m posting by Israel & New Breed (feat. James Fortune  and Jason Nelson) called It’s Not Over is to encourage the lonely, the hurting and the ones who need a song to uplift their spirit. God is with you even when you think He isn’t in your present situation. God is in your situation. God we help you come through whatever trial you are going through because God loves you. He will send you the answers you are looking for even when you think you can’t find them. Many are going through “WHY????” seasons…but God can turn around that “Why?” into a “Because” and be the answer you need while you are asking questions. Though we see dimly the light shines through the darkness and that Light that you seek whether you realize it or not is through our Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST. God Bless you everybody and may this song minister to the broken-hearted during this season. God has not forgotten you.

Worship Sunday: Give Me You


Happy Sunday Everybody!

I have an awesome song for you today by Shana Wilson called Give Me You. When I heard this song I just fell in love with it. The Lyrics are so simple and yet so profound. I’ll post them below for those interested in the song. I pray that this song ministers to your heart, your spirit and your mind today. God bless you Everybody!

Lyrics:
Give me You.
Everything else can wait.
Give me You.
I hope I’m not too late.

Lord, give me You.
Lord, give me You.
Lord, give me You.
Lord, give me You.

It’s me oh, Lord.
I’m on my knees.
Crying out to You.
It’s me oh, Lord.
I’m on my knees.
So, give me You.
Give me You..

Sunday Worship: A Place of Worship when All I Want is You


Hi Everybody!

Boy…I’ve never felt so challenged than the last couple of weeks battling pneumonia… but God is faithful to heal me. I know that Zig Ziglar (November 6, 1926 – November 28, 2012), one of the greatest Christian motivators of our time passed away from Pneumonia this past Wednesday and it makes me appreciate life in a whole new way.It’s amazing how we take life for granted sometimes. A simple cold can take your life away.

Today, I just want to give the Lord praise for all that He keeps doing for my life. I worshiped God today in the morning service at my church, but it was really hard…I was struggling to breathe and I wanted to cry so bad because of the pain I was feeling in my lungs, but no one knows how much worship is warfare on its own. Despite all this, I still gave it my all because when you minister to people and when you minister to GOD…you have to learn to step outside of yourself. Some people during the service were getting healed and delivered. My lungs suffered, but God still receives the Glory. I realize that being a worshiper isn’t just standing there and singing a song….it’s literally a fight of faith even when the odds are against you. People in the pew don’t know your struggles if you are a praise team member in your own church because all they want is to be ministered too; However, as a minister on the Praise team…I’ve come to appreciate my role and have come to love God More and more because worship is warfare…When you love God, you set aside your pride and realize that even as a minister, you are not superhuman just because you can sing, you recognize your fragility and remain humble as you recognize that you still need Jesus to come through for you, even when you serve the King of Kings at such an honorable capacity. I needed Jesus to help me today to praise despite the pain I was feeling in my own lungs and witnessed the Holy Spirit move and minister to people in the congregation as I saw the angels at work with my own spiritual eyes…I can testify that God is completely awesome and I will remain in awe of Him forever.

He gives me strength to do things even when it’s hard when I decide to remain faithful with what I have to do. God doesn’t care about flowery worship….He seeks those to Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

John 4:23
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

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

It’s when you as a worshiper come in communion with the One who is the source of all Truth that makes your worship a powerful weapon that can defeat the evil works planned against your life. Many people prefer worshiping God when all is well….but what happens to the individual when life is taking a turn for the worse?….do you let go of your most powerful weapon which is worship out of your hand and allow yourself to be defeated? No…you should worship even more…even in the worst times of your life because if you let go of that weapon of warfare….your worship will die…and your spirit will die….you yourself,will become your own self-fulfilling prophecy. Never let Go of God. Worship Him…and He will come through for you even in the difficult times. Even if you loose your voice …. pick up a CD and listen to praise and worship and have it in your heart. Worship….is warfare… keep that weapon on you at all times. It’s the one thing that I have in my car that has literally helped me evade car accidents.  Worship is a divine gift….don’t allow anyone to steal your worship. When you do that…. you become a slave to self-pity. Don’t get ensnared with that prideful activity.

Worship the Lord your GOD in Spirit and in Truth, and Jesus will make a WAY out of no way for you if you just believe.
