A DREAM A VISION A FUTURE

Good morning children of God this is truly a blessed day in our lives.

We were awakened this morning and provided with the opportunity of living in the future, with great hopes and the aspirations of achieving greatness in our season. For God shows us things that we may not always understand or even comprehend within our limited thinking, but he gave us this day as a very special holiday to honor, and celebrate the life and legacy of one of the world’s greatest visionaries who had a dream and a vision and dared to live out that dream. That person was none other than the Hon. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

SCRIPTURE: And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. (Habakkuk 2:2-3 KJV) this is what Dr. King did for us in his day and time, he wrote the vision, and he wrote it upon each one of our hearts, that wherever we are that we may be able to see it, read it, and live it in our day and time.

SCRIPTURE: For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. (Jeremiah 29:11 AMP) and this part of the Scriptures we can see the journey be in birth as God gave it to one of his great prophets, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. followed in the footsteps of this prophet.

We are called into action this day to do our part to keep the dream alive. How each one of us uses this day will bear heavily on our own individual futures. A dream a vision a future is alive in each one of us, what will we do this day to birth it into reality?

There are many people in this world that are living in denial of this legacy and the many great contributions that Dr. King made to this world. Their denial is based on ignorant and stupidity, but Dr. King’s dream will live on in eternity. Because of Dr. King’s dream and a vision he birth hope for a brighter future in the lives of many young people from all around the world, and people of all races creeds, colors, and religious backgrounds were awakened to the reality that they too, would be able to achieve greatness within themselves.

In Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream and vision he followed the pathway of another great servant of God, and asked God to guide his heart and give him understanding on how to lead his people. That’s servant was King Solomon who led the nation of Israel for many generations before the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. King Solomon had a dream and he went before God, and he said to God,” give therefore thy servant and understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? (1 King 3:9 KJV)

We as the CHILDREN OF GOD are all called to dream great dreams, then dare to live out those dreams. We must be about the business of God each and every day, doing his will as we walk in the path of righteousness for his name sake. Yes my brothers and sisters, let us use this day as a day of action, that we as children of God who seek God’s guidance and understanding to live together as one people, not separated by race or the color of our skin, but truly recognize in each other the content of our characters, and live in peace with love in our hearts for one another.

Now may the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, be upon each one of you to walk out your purpose and live in his will and seek his blessings over your life and the lives of all those who come into your presence this day.

LEADERS IN AMERICA NEED TO DEVELOP THE COURAGE AND STRENGTH OF THEIR CONVICTION TO LEAD THIS NATION

 LEADERS IN AMERICA NEED TO DEVELOP THE COURAGE AND STRENGTH OF THEIR CONVICTION TO LEAD THIS NATION

LEADERSHIP IN THE ANIMAL KINGDOM (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

LEADERSHIP IN THE ANIMAL KINGDOM (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

In America today, our nation seems to be at a cross road.  We the people elected our individual Representatives from districts in which we live in and sent them to the Nation Capital to join hands with other Representatives from all around the country to become a team of one and lead our Nation in all areas of life as the people’s Representative.  Now we see that theses Representatives have become a body of separative individuals during their own thing with no concern about the people they were elected to represent.

Leadership takes real courage and it takes the strength of ones’ convention to be a bold, strong and courageous leader in difficult times.  Now the question I will ask is simply this, “Where are our elected leaders today?”  

I understand that Leadership is hard work, and in order for any leader to lead a great nation such as this one, he are she  must be strong, have a sound moral character, and develop the courage and strength of their conviction to do what’s right and show themselves to be the leader the people deserve.  A great number of today’s business leaders, government leaders as well as our spiritual leaders seem to be morally corrupt and are standing in opposition of what is truly needed in a leader to lead the people out of the wilderness that we now find ourselves in.  Now pause for a moment and watch this short video clip of a true story of courage, compassion and real leadership.

We live in the greatest country on the face of this universe, however, we find ourselves falling behind many smaller nations in the way they are developing their young people to become great leaders in their own right.  Our education system, the system that is designed to develop the leadership that can truly accomplish great task is falling apart due mainly to our current crop of leaders that are lacking in their strength of courage, to properly fund and develop the type of education system that is now needed in times of trials and tribulation to help develop a new generation of leadership.

Real leaders need real courage to make the tough decisions they will faced every day.  They need to stand on the word of God, and stop being like the motion of the ocean, always going back and forth.  They need to learn how to trust and stand on the word of God.  Know in their hearts that God’s word will never fail them.  Learn to believe without any doubt that they can be assured of good success when they fill their hearts and minds with God’s Word and obey it.

Now listen to how God gave his word to his servant Joshua.  He said to Joshua, “Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”  (Joshua 1:9 NIV)  These are the words that every leader or wanted to be leader should study and meditate on day and night.

Let me share with you the true leadership and success of Joshua, God’s Servant as he chose to obey God, trust God, lean and depend on God and God created in him one of the world’s great military leaders of all times.  You too can become a Joshua.

Joshua faced crisis in his leadership role, just like many of the crisis we face in our leadership roles today.  Not only did he have to contend with the military powers rooted in the Promised Land, but he also had to face them with an untrained band of nomadic shepherds.

God realized Joshua’s need for courage and gave him guidance that would strengthen his faith.

First, he reminded Joshua of his faithfulness to keep all of his promises.  God had pledged to give the land to his people and he would fulfill that pledge.  Joshua’s success did not rest on a military strategy or well trained army, but on the faithfulness of God.

Second, God commanded Joshua to meditate on his words that Moses recorded in the five books of the Pentateuch.  The “Book of the Law” would give the wisdom and encouragement Joshua would need to courageously lead the nation.

Third, God promised to be personally present with Joshua.  No matter how intimidating the enemy or how rebellious the people, Joshua would not have to face them alone.  God would always be at his side.

The same sources of courage that empowered Joshua are available today for any leader who will accept them.  When faced with a risky business decision, the godly leader will look to God in prayer and to God’s revealed Word for the perspective and courage needed to make the right choice.  What situation are you now facing that requires courageous leadership and risk taking?  Let God’s words to Joshua supply you with the courage you need.

Now as we conclude this lesson for today, it is our hope that it will ignite the spark needed for you as a leader to be strong and courageous, take the word of God on leadership serious and do what’s right and pleasing in God sight.  We as the children of God and America need strong and courageous leadersLeaders who are willing to put Country first and come boldly before the throne of grace and speak truth to power, be a real leader by developing the strength of courage and the conviction of your character and lead this country in the right direction.

We minister to you today from a position of peace, purpose, power and prosperity.  I remain your brother in CHRIST JESUS, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!

HEALING THE WOMBS OF A NATION

HEALING THE WOMBS OF A NATION

BY SHIRLEY RHODES

Today, I speak to you as a woman of GodAnointed by the Holy Spirit and guided by the truth of the

SHIRLEY RHODES

word of our God.  We are all children of God, living as free people in the greatest country in the Universe.  The message I bring to you today is one seeking unity and healing for our nation.  We at Vine and Branch World Ministries congratulate our President and His team for their victory.  Now let the healing of our wombs and spirit begins as we ask the following questions:

Will there come a time when all people; all nations, except the challenge of healing the wombs of its citizens and leading their people in a godly manner and come together as one? Will there ever be a world where we are all seen as brothers and sisters, a world filled with love instead of hate and bigotry? We as a nation has elected our chosen political leaders into office for another four years, let us pray that they uphold the value system upon which this country has been built. Let us be a nation that holds firm the words, “In God We Trust” and strive to get along with each other by laying aside differences that separates us as a nation.

We can see this as a new beginning, a fresh start, a time of renewal and healing working together for “all people”; it is a time of renewed hope, optimism and possibilities. Let us remember to keep God in the equation and pray that our leaders will govern guided by the Holy Spirit. The hand of the Lord is upon this nation and he watches each of us and patiently waits for us to acknowledge him in all things, we must be obedient to his call and the nation will be a recipient of many blessings.

Jehovah is my name, call me and I will answer and show you great and hidden things which you know not (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV).  The Lord declares, “ Call on me, come and pray to me, I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:13). I know the plans I have for you plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV).

The call has gone out to all nations (people) will we be obedient?

“The Lord will roar from on high; he will thunder from his holy dwelling and roar mightily against the land. He will shout like those who tread grapes, shout against all who live on the earth. The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth, for the Lord will bring charges against the nations; he will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword, “‘ declares the Lord. This is what the Almighty says: “Look! Disaster is spreading from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the earth.”(Jeremiah 25: 30-32 NIV).

All kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him. His name shall endure forever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed (Psalm 72: 11, 17 KJV)

This Book, the Holy Book, on every line, marked with the seal of high divinity,

On every leaf bedewed with drops of love Divine, and with eternal heraldry and signature of God Almighty stamped from first to last: this ray of sacred light, this lamp, from off the everlasting throne, mercy took down, and in the night of time stood, casting on the dark her gracious bow; and evermore beseeching men with tears and earnest sighs, to read, believe and live—Pollok.

Let us use this day as a day to pray for the healing of our nation, pray for President Obama and his family, pray for Candidate Mitt Romney and his family and all our leaders.  Allow the Holy Spirit to enter into their present and guide them to do what’s right and pleasing in the sight of God.

GOD HAS BLESSED EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN WITH AWESOME POWER

GOD HAS BLESSED EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN WITH AWESOME POWER

Today is the first day in the life of every American Citizen to make a change.  You were blessed with awesome powers from the beginning of time.  You may not have always known how to exercise what was given to you, but on this day, that opportunity has presented itself in a very unique way for each of you to stand up, come forth and show the world the great power that God gave you.

The power is in your vote.  It becomes awesome in its nature when you exercise it by casting your ballot

THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE MY VOTE COUNT

to vote.  A great number of people have already exercised their power including this writer.  If you are an American Citizen that is reading this article, and if you have not voted, let me encourage you to go out and do so.  The polls in your area are open, and you must take advantage of this opportunity right now.  Don’t be a slacker, be a proud American Citizen.  There is no excuse that you can offer, for not using the power God gave you.

Our democracy depends upon each of its citizens being well informed and then doing what’s right in the sight of God by exercising the power God gave them and vote.  Now is the time for each one of us to make a difference and help our country to stir its ship of State onto the right course for the next decade.

Many of our parents have fought and died for our right to vote.  Today, the struggle still continues, and there are those who are fighting just as hard to block our access to the polls, and the right as an American Citizen to use the power God gave to us.  You must not allow that to happen.

Let us not forget, although God gave us power to do what is right, God is still in charge of all that takes place in this country and the universe.  We operate under the authority of God and that includes each one of our leaders.  At some point each one of them will have to answer to God for their actions over their Citizens and the power God placed in their hands.  But on this day, each one of you will determine whose hand you are willing to give the power to rule over the greatest country in the world.  The choice is yours providing you exercise your God given power and vote.

My Maximized Prayeris that God will strengthen your physical body, enlighten your spiritual mind, and

Giving God all the praises for His Marvelous Light (Photo by Pastor Davis)

fill you with the Holy Spirit in such a way that His Marvelous light will shine through  and His glory will be on display in all that you do this day.   You are a child of the King of all Kings, and how you act and what you do when faced with the many challenges that could present themselves when you go out and exercise your right and power to vote is my prayer for God to cover you with His grace and it will protect you from all evil spirits that may come upon you this day.  In the name of Jesus, I pray, AMEN!”

THE MAGIC OF BELIEVING IN YOUR VOTE

THE MAGIC OF BELIEVING IN YOUR VOTE

Are you a person of faith?  Do you believe in miracles?  Do you believe in the bible, when the word says, “all things are possible if you believe?”  Do you believe in anything?  For the rest of this day and tomorrow, you now have the opportunity to test your belief system.  God created each one of us in His own image and likes.  He gave us His Character, and He allowed us to live in the greatest country on earth.  What a great joy this is to be given the opportunity to participate in the democracy of the country that God has placed each one of us in.  Our democracy means freedom for all people, and each one of us now have the opportunity to decide on just how we are going to continue to live free and make decisions about our lives that will keep us free and moving forward as a nation.

Over the next 48 hours each one of us will have to look into the mirror and face our other self.  When we do, we will be facing reality of just who we are.  The mirror will not lie, but we can lie to ourselves and deny our real self.  Who is that person that I am looking at in the mirror, and how is that person going to vote?  Not if that person is going to vote, because the choice is crystal clear, that person must vote if that person wants to continue to live free and have the freedom to make his own choices over the next decade.  The choice that this person that I am looking at in this mirror, must make the right choice for the future of himself, his family’s future and the future of his country.  No one else can vote for the person in the mirror, he must get out and vote for himself.

I am a believer, I believe in the magic and integrity of my vote.  Therefore, I am going to step out on faith and make my vote count.  Because all that I have seen and heard, teaches me to trust in God for all that I have not seen.  Nothing or anyone can turn me away from doing what is right for this country.  I believe that God is still in control of all things and the things that I believe in, God will make them possible.
