The Gift of giving is Remembering

BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS for they shall be called the sons of God.” (Matthew 5:9; NKJV)

REMEMBERING OTHERS DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON:

christmas 05

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

The time of year many have anxiously anticipated is upon us, now the process of decision and choice making has begun full forced. It is the time of year in which feasting and celebration are shared within many homes and communities world -wide; therefore, let us enhance the spirit by REMEMBERING OTHERS DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

There are those who are less fortunate among us that a friendly gesture can bring healing to their soul, for they seek not the material things of this world, but spiritual. Jesus gave each of us a message, a thought to always ponder especially during the holiday season, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God” (Matthew 5:9; NKJV). Where there is disharmony, discord, chaos and greed, the time is now to mend and repair, restore and renew by REMEMBERING OTHERS DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.

Somewhere there is someone that will not hear the words “Joy to the World” or “Silent Night,” because of the sound of war raging in their communities. Somewhere there will be some child that will not experience the happiness of opening gifts with moments of glee. Somewhere someone will spend Christmas alone because they have no family to share it with. The list it seems is endless, but the joy of Christmas is really all about the “Birth” the “Gift of a Savior.” For the scriptures reminds us this way, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.” While REMEMBERING OTHERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON think on these things for it is from the heart love is freely given.

As the joy and spirit of Christmas continue to unfold, take a moment and reflect on how blessed you truly are, WHILE REMEMBERING OTHERS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON in a very special way.

May you find the gift of peace and contentment as you approach and become participants in this holiday season.

Living in the moment

Living in the moment, it has been given to you, what will you do with it?

You say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such city, spend a year there, buy and sell and make a profit; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow (James: 4: 13-14; NKJV).”  Learn to live in the Moment; You live each day not knowing what tomorrow will bring. You make plans, set goals and live for that moment in time; before you know it, you find yourself so caught up and worrying about tomorrow in which you have very little control. One of the most important things to remember is that the only time you have is where you are in the moment. This is the only moment and time you have, learn to live in this moment, love it, appreciate it and enjoy all that God has set before you in this very moment.

Now set your sights on the things above and be about the business of, “Learning to live in the Moment!”

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 8)

 

SPIRITUAL WARFARE 006

How prayer can defeat your enemy

Good Morning My Dear Brothers and Sisters; in our lesson this week on “preparing for Spiritual warfare”, we examine for you, “How prayer can defeat your enemy!”  It is so important that we learn how to fight and win this battle using the weapons that God has provided for us and stop trying to use the devil’s own weapon because they are built for him and his evil spirits and they will fail us every time.  So let’s get in the game and learn how to use the most potent weapon in our  warfare and that is the weapon of prayer.

The Lord wants each one of us to become Spiritual Fit, preparing our minds as well as our physical bodies to fight and win.  He wants us to be rooted and grounded in his word.  He wants us to stop allowing satin to brain wash us and become totally spiritually fit to serve him.  He stands ready to prepare us for this Spiritual warfare game that is upon us.

Once again, you see that the bible commands us to, “Take

thehelmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God:  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”  (Ephesians 6:17-18). 

You see when you have the word of God in you; God puts the ultimate weapon in your hand to fight the enemy.  The word of God becomes your sword.  Your enemy cannot stand against you in anyway, for God’s word will cut like a two edged sword, cutting to the right and to the left giving you power to defeat the enemy.

Know that you must always be in prayer, for it is through prayer that you have a direct phone line to God.  You can call him up any time.  He stands ready to help you defeat his greatest enemy called satin.  Pray for each other and your prayers shall be heard.  In Luke 6:28, the bible instructs us to, “Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.  In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 the bible instructs us to Pray without ceasing.  Having a proper prayer life will guide you successfully through your spiritually fitness.

YOU ARE CALLED BY THE WORD OF GOD

Until we meet in our next session, may God bless each of you ABUNDANTLY!

Leadership for the hearts and minds of the people

YOUR MISSION CHILDREN OF GOD SHOULD YOU DECIDE TO ACCEPT IT IS:

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, the son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  (Matthew 28:19-20)

JESUS INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO CARRY OUT THE MISSION

In order for us to climb that ladder of success, move to that high place that God is trying to take us, it requires strong and deciles leadership.  Jesus has called not only His Disciples, but each believer to GO and become a leader by obeying the Great Commission and making disciples of all nations.

After Jesus had given his disciples their assigned MISSION, he did what any great leader would do.  He then gave them instructions on just how to carry out their mission.

Jesus instructions were crystal clear and concise.  Now listen, take note and understand how these instructions were also meant for you as you accepted Jesus call to GO. These are the instructions Jesus gave his twelve disciples.

“Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.  Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.  As you go, preach this message: The kingdom of heaven is near.  Heal the sick, raise the dead, and cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.  Freely you have received, freely give.  Do not take along any gold or silver or copper in your belts; take no bag for the journey, or extra tunic, or sandals or a staff; for the worker is worth his keep.” “Whatever town or village you enter, search for some worthy person there and stay at his house until you leave.  As you enter the home, give it your greeting.  If the home deserves, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you.  If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town.  I tell you the truth; it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the Day of Judgment than for the town.  I am sending you out like sheep among wolves.  Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.”  (Matthews 10:5-16)

These instructions will never self-destruct.  They are a permanent part of your road map into the future.  The choice is yours, the future is NOW!  You must stop wasting time and be about God’s business.  He is standing at the gate waiting on each one of us that has accepted His call to GO, to walk swiftly through the gate and into the arms of the FATHER who is patiently waiting.

HAVE YOU DECIDED TO ACCEPT THE MISSION?

We thank you for studying with us today, and we seek God’s Blessings over your life, your family and you’re Ministries.  For additional studies, please click on one of the links below.  You can also email me and I will certainly respond to all.

Living a truly Divine Life in the Moment by the Word

Living a truly Divine Life in the Moment by the Word

THE PROCESS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE PROCESS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My dear brothers and sisters, today I release my God given creed to you on how you can live in the moment and truly live a Divine Life.  Take it, read it, study it, claim it for yourself and write it upon your heart in order that you may begin the process.  Remember, today is the first day of the rest of your life.  Believe in the power of the Word, and be Free to live your Divine Life by the Power and Presence of the Word.

MY CREED

I LIVE BY DIVINE FAITH—a faith in God that is like a bridge over troubled waters.   Secure and confident, I rise in thought and act above whatever challenges may be swirling around me.  I live the fullness of life.

MY FAITH assures me, so that I accept each change for what it is:  a new beginning.  This is a time for greater strengths to be realized and expressed by me, for greater blessings to flow to and from me, for greater fulfillment to be accepted and shared by me.

MY JOY COMES FROM WITHIN! Today my life is fuller, richer, and more fun than ever, because I approach each day from the joy in my heart. The people I know and love bring me joy, but I can also choose to manifest happiness on my own. My happiness is an inside job.  As I appreciate everything in life, I am joy in expression!

MY PROSPERITY IS IN DIVINE ORDER:  I accept the abundance of God that is always flowing to me and through me.  I give and receive joyously and gratefully.  When God said that the promise land will be flowing with milk and honey He was assuring us that if our faith was strong as a mustard seed, that our world would be flowing with blessings, and filled with a life of divine potential.  Knowing this, I am bold in spirit. I am aware of my own divine potential for living a life of my dreams.

I am assured by the word of God that peace and tranquility will prevail in my life because I am a work in progress. I do all that needs to be done by me with ease and efficiency.  I balance my work, family, and social life, my schedule may be tight and my responsibilities many, but I am not concerned.  I keep my thoughts up above the busyness and remain calm and clear, knowing that divine order is established in my life, and in all of life.

MY LIVING INDIVINE ORDER ASSURES ME; that I am abundantly supplied with all I need.  Time and resources are available to me.  Strength, energy, and intelligence are mine.  Aligned with God’s law of order, I flow with life’s scheduled and unscheduled events.

Getting past a time of trouble is not about my knowing the details of how blessings will come to me.  In faith I know with certainly that I will receive them.  Living in the moment with God, I understand that change ushers in a time of newness and discovery.

I ACCEPT, I RELEASE, AND I AM FREE!  Today I am FREE, and my FREEDOM, comes from knowing that I am a son of the KING. Peace and power prevails within me. I release all things to God—all worry all pain. Both physically and spiritually, I feel His peace washing over me. I am comforted. The Spirit of God is here—within me and everywhere around me. His Spirit sustains and upholds me at all times and allows me to remain FREE.

Today my life is in DIVINE ORDER and I am living FREE, because I am a work of ART in progress.

To God be the glory, may you live in the Peace, Power, Purpose and Prosperity of the Lord our  and Savior Jesus Christ.

How to experience Humility as a way of Life

How to experience Humility as a way of Life

THE TOWER OF STRENGTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, do you really understand who you are when you look into the mirror and see that face looking back at you?  Do you ever ask the question, Oh God, who am I?  What I want you to understand in this lesson and the many lessons we teach here is How Humility works to bring you into the knowledge and power of  just who you are, who God is, and who you are in God.  Re-read and comprehend this last statement because it holds more power than an atom bomb.

The reward for HUMILITY and fear of the LORD is RICHES and HONOR and LIFE. (Proverbs 22:4 ESV) Now I ask you, how many of you do not want to experience these blessings in your life. God is teaching us how to live as that new person in this season and experience a true abundant lifestyle, BY LEARNING HOW TO EXPERIENCE HUMILITY AS A WAY OF LIFE!

In this, we are given a choice, we can befriend God are we can befriend the world. Some of us may say that we will befriend both God and the world, but in practice, we can only choose one way. The more we give ourselves to the world, the stronger will be our allegiance to the world. The more we give ourselves to God, the stronger will be our bond with him. This is what Jesus says, “Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be. (Matthew 6:21)

We have to remember, that we can find strength in the Lord, to live a humble lifestyle and receive all the lords abundant BLESSINGS. Although the world may consider us weak, when we show HUMILITY, this is because the world wants us to be filled with pride, and God sets himself against the proud, because pride makes us self-centered and leads us to conclude that we deserve all we can see, touch, or imagine. It creates greedy appetites far more than we need. Pride can subtly cause us to no longer see our sins or our need for forgiveness.

But remember this one great truth, HUMILITY opens the way for God’s grace to flow into our lives; thus, God shows favor to the HUMBLE.

Do not get so caught up in the ways of the world and the people that surrounds you, that you lose sight of who you are, who God is, who you are in God, that your heart becomes so hearten that you cannot HUMBLE yourselves in the presence of the Lord.

Understand this fact, “HUMILITY is not weakness; instead, it is the only place that believers gain courage to face all their temptations and sins with God’s strength.” As God gives us more grace, we realize that this world’s seductive attractions are only cheap substitutes for what God has to offer. It is our choice we can HUMBLE ourselves and receive God’s grace, or we can continue in our pride and self-sufficiency and experience his anger.

Now let me conclude this by leaving you with these two questions; (1). How do we, so prone to pride at the very moment when we think we might be approaching humility, discover true humility? (2). How do we become the kind of humble people who find the overflowing grace that God promises?

Well, listen to how Scripture teaches us to do it; “Let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.” (James 4:7-10 MSG)

May the grace of God fill your lives with His overflowing blessings, and bring you much joy and peace now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!
