Good morning children of God, and indeed what a great morning this really is. For the Lord our God has awaken us and provided us with a brand-new opportunity to lift him up in high praises. For this reason, we ought to lift up holy hands where ever we are and just begin to praise his holy name. For he is worthy to be praised and today’s Devotional Service is designed to concentrate our minds on praising the Lord, after a very long week of being in the secular world.  Now join with me and let us together focus our attention away from the world and upon God and the things of Heaven.

OUR SCRIPTURE READING IS PSALM 136 by Pastor Davis

Today my brothers and sisters, we are a blessed people. We are a free people we can lift up the name of Jesus, praise and worship him without fear of persecution, and when we do not take advantage of this blessed opportunity and shower him with praising and serving him in his holiness, we are cursing our blessing and we are not deserving of the Lords grace that he has showered upon us. Let us at this very moment, not cut off our blessing, but lift up the Lord our God in high praises and Thanksgiving.

Good Morning Children of God, if it is Sunday, it is time to rise up, stand up, look around, lift your Holy Hands towards the Heavens, and say out loud, “Thank You Jesus, Thank You Jesus, you brought me through another difficult week, where I had to face many temptations, trials and tribulations.  I can truly say, I have come this far by faith, leaning and depending on you.  I know it was nothing but grace.  It was your grace that picked me up when I was falling down, stumbling all around, and could not find my way out of darkness.  Satan had come and stolen my joy, I had lost all hope of ever being able to turn my life around, but I kept hearing that voice saying, “You can make it, if you try.”  You can make it, I know you can!  I lifted my head up and looked all around, and said, “Thank you Jesus, I can do this!  This is a brand new day, and as far as me and my family is concern, we are going to serve you, praise you, and worship you Lord, praise you in every way, every day, with everything in my soul, I will praise you this day and for the rest of the days of my life. Because Praise is who I am, Praise is who we all are, we are your Children, and we have gather together to Praise and Worship you like no other time.  Thank you Jesus for allowing this Praise Service to begin…

Saturday Morning Devotional Service of Prayer and Praise (Lifting up Holy Hands)

Now let us go before the Lord in Prayer lifting up Holy Hands…

provision-16139172-P-e1411639376986

Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray—not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God. And I want women to get in there with the men in humility before God, not primping before a mirror or chasing the latest fashions but doing something beautiful for God and becoming beautiful doing it.  (1 Timothy 2:8-10 MSG)

PRAISE GOD:

praise 26

HE IS WORTHY TO BE PRAISED…

LET US PRAY:

 

TIME FOR ALTER CALL

So that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,  and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11 ESV)

HOW TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE

What must I do to be saved? This question was first asked by a jailer at Ephesus, who witnessed an earthquake that freed Paul and Silas. Paul and Silas were the Church’s first official evangelists, who had been falsely arrested and beaten and left in his charge. The earthquake came as the climax to a midnight prison cell prayer and praise meeting and it spurred the jailer to consider the condition of his soul.  What must I do to be saved, you asked?  If you truly want to be saved, listen to what the Lord says you must do, “you should first go to God in prayer.  When praying to Him you should tell Him you are sorry for the sinful things that you have done against Him and how you want to do the right thing from now on (1 John 1:9Acts 20:21). Next you should ask Him to forgive your sins through His death payment on the cross (Colossians 2:10-14). Last, make a commitment to God that you will wholly follow His commandments and believe on Him and His Word, with the help of His Holy Spirit (John 14:15).  Congratulations, you are SAVED (John 8:32)! You have become a new person, and you will be able to live a life that is pleasing to God (2 Corinthians 5:14-17 ). Now, God will come into your heart and live with you (Revelation 3:20). This is so you can be close to Him, receive His power, and understand His Word (1 John 3:16Acts1:8John14:26).

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY?

Thank you for your prayers and service to the Kingdom of God. Please return in a few hours as we will continue with our Sunday Prayer, Praise and Worship Service.  May God bless you abundantly as you go out into the world this day and serve.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE OF PRAISE GENESIS 17:15-17

And God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.  I will bless her, and moreover, I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall become nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.”  Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed and said to himself, “Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?”

LET US PRAY:  Heavenly Father, thank you for the blessings of Abraham, thank you for my blessing as your Servant and Messenger for this day. Use me to bless the lives of all the people that take the time to partake of this message, in Jesus name, Amen!

Today I just want to take a few minutes of your valuable time as a Mother that understands what it is like to be a Mother and raise her Children in these very difficult times that we live in.  I speak to you on the subject, “Mother is God’s Gift by Design!”  When we study the scriptures, starting with Eve the Mother of all living, we quickly discover that a Mother is a gift that often goes unseen, a chosen vessel of service, created  with tenderness of heart, a loving spirit, filled with dignity, instilled with wisdom, firmly rooted in faith and love, and is known by her attributes  of strength, patience and endurance that enables her to carry out her assigned mission. Many words can be used to describe Mother, because she is a gift from God. A gift: to be honored, respected, loved and cherished, through admiration of character.

When a baby is born the first instinct of a Mother is to inspect, touch and hold the baby close, she often will shed tears of joy. Throughout biblical history there are stories of Mothers and their sacrifice; Mothers who gave birth to kings and queens, royal linage passed down through-out generations.

THE LOVE OF A MOTHER (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE LOVE OF A MOTHER (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS) MY GRAND DAUGHTER MAXINE ALEXANDER BYARS

Consider Moses’ Mother Jochebed, who, when the order came from Pharaoh to kill all male infants, hid him for three months, but, was then forced to abandon him in a basket of bulrushes among the reeds beside the banks of the Nile, only to be the one to nurse him as belonging to someone else.  Elizabeth,  Mother of John, known as the precursor of Jesus who was later beheaded  and Mary the Mother of Jesus, who was hung on a cross, were all women of distinction, a Mother, God’s Gift by Design.

A mother is chosen to carry the baby in her womb and through that process a bond occurs that nothing or no one can take away. Mothers may give their child up for adoption or may choose to not be an active participant in their lives through circumstance or choice, but that does not remove their status as Mother.

Gods’ design for Mothers is to be models of goodness by setting examples as the keeper of home, to be virtuous and pure, loving and kind always encouraging others.

A Mother is a model of discipline and strong character and she reverence God in her teachings. A Mother avoids idleness, gossip, always setting an example and helping to guide others she may encounter.

A Mother is many women; teachers, doctors, lawyers, business executives, stay-at-home moms; the list is endless as to her capabilities. The role of Mother follows many paths and is done so in such a way that she is able to understand the needs of others. Strength, dignity, and grace are her badge of honor; she is adored by her family. Gods’ design for Mother is not determined by labels of who she is because he has created her for his purpose.  As she grow in wisdom and grace her beauty shines through as a tower of hope and strength for those who may not have as of yet mastered the skill.

Remember it’s Mothers’ Day, take a moment to pick up the telephone and call, stop by for a visit and take her something special, sit and talk for “a spell, ”you never know where you will be next Mothers’ Day. Make the moment magical and watch her smile, you’ll be glad you did, because she is your Mother, Gods’ Gift by Design.

Thank you for your attention and comprehension of this message, may God bless you throughout this Mother’s Day. As you attend your local church this day, take the time to hug a Mother and tell them that they are special and that you love them.  May the grace of God watch over you and keep you ever so strong, in Jesus name, Amen!

The two America’s that we live in

By Pastor Davis Byars

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the heart of the cross (Created and designed by Pastor Davis)

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the heart of the cross (Created and designed by Pastor Davis)

The two America’s that we live in are not balanced with equal justice under the law for all people.  Although some will argue that since we now have an African American President that we now have a balance of fairness in America.  This is so far from the truth that it would make a duck’s head spin round and round under water.

The system of unfairness has always been stacked against the African American people.  Unfortunately too many people in America today do not know; understand are even want to know the History of America and the Slave trade that built this great country of ours on the backs of the African American people.  The injustice that took place over centuries ago is still percolating in our society as a whole today.

Let’s look at what took place just 200 short years ago; our founding fathers wrote into the US Constitution that slaves were to be counted as three fifths of a human being.  These are the African American people that were taken away from their families in Africa, brought to the New World on Slaves Ships and sold into slavery.  Children taken away from their Mothers and Fathers never to know who their real parents ever were, beaten and raped just so the master could have enough labor to earn him the standard of living that he required.

Just 147 years ago the southern states launched the Civil War to defend the free white citizen’s power to hold others in bondage.

Time and time again our justice system has ruled unfairly against its African American Citizens forcing unequal justice upon them and placing them in a world set apart from the rest of the other world in America.  This is the two America’s that we live in today.

Only 112 years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that laws consigning blacks to “separate but equal” facilities were constitutional.

And finally I ask you to think deeply on this; just 50 short years ago President Lyndon Johnson pushed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 through Congress, and then followed by the Voting Rights Act of 1965 giving Black people in America the legal right to vote.

Yes we have come a long way since Slavery and the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision on March 6, 1857 when our U.S. Supreme Court wrote in a 7-2 decision that a slave who had resided in a free state and territory where slavery was prohibited was not thereby entitled to his freedom; that African Americans were not and could never be citizens of the United States.

Now as we see it today, this nation has been truly haunted by its original sins of putting people in bondage and selling them as slaves to increase their economy well being and regulating Blacks as second class citizens and in many cases not citizens at all has been raven by the torment of race and yet so dedicated to the ideal that all men are created equal has now elected Barack Obama as its first African American President.

Watching the looting and burning of one of America’s greatest cities was so dishearten.  There is no excuse for it.  The looting and rioting that took place in Baltimore, Maryland and broadcasted on T.V. screens all over the world was truly a very sad commentary, and it can never be excused, swept under the carpet nor washed away by any amount of words, nor can the unjustified continuous killing of young black men by police without justice being served be swept under the carpet.  One does not justify the other.  Justice must be served up equally in all situations for all of God’s people.

It furthers disheartens me to read some of the writings of my Christian brothers and sisters and especially the Pastors and teachers who are servants of the Lord and called to be thy an example of Jesus Christ whom I admire and respect a lot, blame Black people as a whole for all that is taking place there in Baltimore and all across America without looking at the bigger picture of what is and has been going on in the two America’s that we live in that always seem to deprive Black People of their human rights, dignity, freedom, and economic opportunities.

Yes, condemn the rioting, looting, burning and all the criminal acts that have taken place.  But look first in the mirror and ask yourself, “What have I done to help make the surrounding communities in which I live and work in a better place for all people?”

It is high time to stop playing the blame game and help to improve the living conditions in America for all people, weather it is helping to raise the minimum wage, improve the educational system, providing more jobs for the young people, helping to rebuild your surrounding communities by volunteering your time and resources, helping to ensure the voting rights for all people, helping to build better relations between the races rather than blaming and condemning, these are just a few suggestions, the list can go on and on providing you truly want to help make this become one America for all people instead of the two America’s we now live in.

Now let us understand that Knowledge is power and it can help to empower the people that you lead to overcome poverty and the sins of the past.  We all have the responsibility to becoming better stewards over the resources that our God has provided to us.  Let us take our responsibility seriously using the many gifts that we have been blessed with to empower the people to help them make the necessary changes that can improve their individual lives and improve the lives and economic conditions of all people not just the one percent.

LET US PRAY:

Lord we thank you for the many blessings that you have bestowed upon all your people, and we know that you are truly a loving and forgiving God who will always apply equal justice over your people only has a loving father will do. We call upon you Heavenly Father to bring peace, justice and healing upon a divided America.  Let us learn and grow from our past mistakes and sins we all have committed that we may experience the true peace, love and joy that you will provide to all of us who love and obey your laws.  We thank you Father for the healing that has already begun to take place and we know that in due time all things will come together for the good of those who love you, in Jesus name, Amen!
