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.

Your Purpose is the engine that drives success

 

The “bull’s eye” may not be hit by the rifleman whose hand is uncertain, and his footing infirm.  The goal will never be reached by the runner who swerves from a straight course, and wanders into a pathless wilderness.  The student will accomplish nothing who flies from study to study with the restlessness of disease; and no man, whatever his condition or mental powers, will win or deserve success, unless he fixes upon some special object to be carried out, and through cloud and sunshine steadily perseveres in his settled purpose.

Purpose, indeed, is the very essence the main element of a heroic character.  It was purpose which animated Ignatius Loyola in his ascetic labors; in persecution, and captivity, and physical suffering, still toiling at the fulfillment of his cherished design, the establishment of that “Society of Jesus,” whose influence on the world’s history has been so signal and remarkable.  Martin Luther’s purpose” achieved the ReformationOliver Cromwell’s purpose” turned the tide of battle at Naseby, and placed him in the seat of the English Kings.  Mahoney’s “purpose” built up a mighty empire and fixed the firm foundations of a new creed.  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “purpose” was to build a powerful non violent movement and bring people of color excess to the ballot box.  Barack Obama “purpose” was to create a movement of change that would propel him to the President of the United States of America and the leader of the free world.

The man who concentrates his energies upon the fulfillment of an unalterable design will assuredly wring success from the hands of a reluctant fortune.  Such a man will take no heed of “impossibilities.”  “Impossible?” exclaimed Napoleon, “there is nothing impossible; it is a word only found in the dictionary of fools.” Jesus said, “If you have the faith of a grain of mustard seed, nothing will be impossible for you.”  The difference between genius and mediocrity lies chiefly in this matter of “purpose” for true genius has, what mediocrity usually wants, the capacity of labor.  “Work and purpose” is the moral of every heroic life.

 

How to loose weight by changing your thinking

 

In everything we do, it is not the actual physical actions themselves that create the results, but it is the mindset we have while doing it. The physical actions themselves are a means by which we channel the energy of intent into physical manifestation. It is the energy of intent we do things with that determines the outcome we get. This is the secret that explains why different people can do the same exact things but get very different results. In truth, Mind is Principle over everything in life that we engage in.

Learning to use your mind power to control your physical body is your key to your weight reduction.  There is no genie in the bottle that is going to help you lose weight.  You can listen to all the commercials and so call experts tell you about the greatest methods they have discovered that will help you lose weight and you can end up spending hundreds and even thousands of dollars trying to drop those extra pounds and yes for a short time you might be able to lose a few of those pounds because someone has convinced you that you really could and you yourself has told yourself that you were going to do it this time.

Look around any city and you will see all kinds of gym springing up.  Radio and TV commercials advertising great rates for the first time user, you see some people with great looking bodies coming out of those beautiful places and you say wow, I want to get my body looking like that.  Well guest what, you can get your body into any desired physical condition that you may desire.  And yes, going to the gym will help, but it is not the key to your body becoming physically sculptured. 

The first thing you must remember is the word, “Desire” keep this word in the fore front of your mind.  Pray on it, meditate on it, and write it down and all the time ask yourself, what is it that I desire?  Why do I desire it?  When you answer these questions, allow that desire to become a burning desire within you.  So much so, that everywhere you go, and everything that you do, you will feel that burning desire deep within your soul to make a change in your life.  It is that burning desire to make that change that will propel you into action in such a way that you will begin to feel thinner, you will look into the mirror and see yourself at the desired weight loss and sculptured figured you desired for yourself.

The second thing you must remember is the word, “Belief.”  You see nothing happens until you can believe within your mind that it can happen.  You can go to the gym and work out daily, take all kinds of diet pills, sign onto all the weight loss programs in the world, but until you believe it in your own mind that you really can lose 10, 20, 50, 100 pounds or any desired amount nothing is going to happen.  The reason so many people become so discussed with their weight loss programs, is that the people don’t always tell you the whole truth.  All they care about is getting your money and then you are really left on your own.  Another reason is that a great many of them don’t understand the secret to weight loss and therefore how can they really help you when they have not come into the reality of how the power of the minds works.  You must believe it in order to conceive it and then have it.  Set your weight lost goal, set a reasonable time frame in which to achieve it, then believe in your mind that you are going to achieve it and then wow, you would have achieve what everyone has been telling you that could not be done.

The third thing you must remember is the word, “Faith.”  Faith must be your central focus point to keeping you on track towards reaching your desired goal.  Remember what faith is:  “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  (Hebrews 11:1).”  This is not a definition of faith, but it is a description of what faith does when one takes it and truly believes that it will work for them.  This word substance means “essence” or “reality.”  Faith treats things hoped for as reality.  When your reality is centered upon your weight reduction program and you do not allow doubt to enter into your desired goal, the results will be faith in action.  The word “Evidence” means “proof” or “conviction.”  Faith itself proves that what is unseen is real.  Whatever you have fixed in your mind to make happen in reducing your weight to your desired goal, although it may not be seen with the physical eye at this very moment, but the mind’s eye sees it, accepts it, and then begins to execute your request to bring it into reality at your desired date and time. 

The fourth thing you must remember is the word, “Intent.”  What is your intent for wanting to lose weight?  What purpose will it serve you?   Your intent must be clear and communicated to your mind through a clear thought process.  Allowing your mind the opportunity to gather unto itself all the necessary forces of energy it needs to transform you into the person you desire to be.  Be certain about what you want and why you want it.  Let your intent become crystal clear in your mind. 

The fifth and final point you must remember is the word, “Transform.”  The word transform simply means to change.  You see if you want to lose weight for any reason, there must be a change in your thinking.  Everything begins and ends in the mind.  In order for you to lose weight, you have to think it.  If you want a sculptured body, thinking about how you would look, the clothes you would wear and how others would be attracted to you.  Your mind is an energy field.  It attracts to it the thoughts that are broad cast into it by your very own thoughts.  A negative thought attracts negative things.  Positive thoughts attract positive things.  Therefore if you think eating health foods will help you be health and help to reduce your weight, it will do just that.  The law of attraction is at work here.  Weather it is good or bad, your mind will produce the desired results that you ask it to do.  The Bible teaches us to ask, believe and we shall receive.  You were created with the mind of God.  A mind that can create, build up and tear down.  Whatever you want your mind to do, it is there at your command waiting for instructions from you.  You have the power to change whatever circumstances that you are now facing.  Nothing in your life is impossible to you.  The transforming from the old to the new begins with you.  It all begins in your mind.  You must change your thinking from the, “I can’t” to the “I can.”  I can do all things through God who strengths me.  The weight that I have on now is only temporary.  I can reduce my weight by 50 pounds within the next 10 months by transforming my thinking, executing this formula and excepting nothing less than my own reality.  With that in mind the brand new me is a done deal.

We are saved by God’s Grace

  Paul says in Romans, chapter five, that we are justified by faith (v. 1). Faith means trusting God to love us, because of what he did in Jesus Christ, and entrusting ourselves wholeheartedly to that divine love. Salvation is by grace — we do not deserve God’s favor toward us and we can never earn it. We access this grace by faith, which means that we must always look outside ourselves for our salvation (2 Tim. 1:12).

     We cannot perform the work which results in our salvation, for Jesus has already done that, once for all time. We cannot add to that finished work, or improve on it. We can only trust God to be gracious to us as he promises in Christ. If we picture grace as the room of God’s favor, we may think of faith as the door into that room (Rom. 5:1-2).

     God accepts us because of Christ’s work on our behalf. We enjoy that grace by accepting it as fact, trusting it as sufficient, and throwing ourselves on it in total and eternal abandon, to become servants of righteousness and true holiness in Christ. We do not earn God’s favor. We can not ever please Him enough to be given His blessings. We certainly could never pay for our own sins and be saved. But in Christ God has brought together the justice that is his nature and the weakness that is ours: Christ became a man and took our place.

     God’s grace deals with the weakness of our flesh because salvation does not depend on our weak flesh — Jesus has earned it for us already! It also takes into account God’s holiness, because sin is punished — by the death of God’s sinless Son! And so Paul can say to the EphesiansChristians:

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast (Eph. 2:8-9).

Wake up Lady Wisdom is waiting for you

Wake up Lady Wisdom is waiting for you

Wisdom 02

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, time waits on no one, you are been called out by a very powerful voice and her name is LADY WISDOM.  She is seeking to provide you with knowledge and understanding, some powerful tools that can change your life providing you are willing to listen to what she has to say

Wisdom 01

Now listen carefully as LADY WISDOM speaks truth to power.

LADY WISDOM goes out in the street and shouts.
At the town center she makes her speech.
In the middle of the traffic she takes her stand.
At the busiest corner she calls out:

 “SIMPTOMS, How long will you wallow in ignorance?
CYNICS! How long will you feed your cynicism?
IDIOTS! How long will you refuse to learn?
ABOUT FACE! I can revise your life.
Look, I’m ready to pour out my spirit on you;
I’m ready to tell you all I know.
As it is, I’ve called, but you’ve turned a deaf ear;
I’ve reached out to you, but you’ve ignored me.

“Since you laugh at my counsel
and make a joke of my advice,
How can I take you seriously?
I’ll turn the tables and joke about your troubles!
What if the roof falls in,
and your whole life goes to pieces?
What if catastrophe strikes and there’s nothing
to show for your life but rubble and ashes?
You’ll need me then. You’ll call for me, but don’t expect
an answer.
No matter how hard you look, you won’t find me.

“Because you hated Knowledge
    and had nothing to do with the Fear-of-God,
Because you wouldn’t take my advice
and brushed aside all my offers to train you,
Well, you’ve made your bed—now lie in it;
you wanted your own way—now, how do you like it?
Don’t you see what happens, you SIMPLETONS, you idiots?
Carelessness kills; complacency is murder.
First pay attention to me, and then relax.
Now you can take it easy—you’re in good hands.”

Proverb 1:20:33 MSG

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare  (Lesson 5)

 SIGN UP FOR A HEAVENLY GYM MEMBERSHIP

Some of you are losing battles you should be winning because you are not in shape.  It’s not just that Satan and his pimps are on your trail.  Some demons cannot be cancelled out.  They have to be cast out. WOMEN WARRIORS

Jesus said some demons come out only by fasting and prayer.  Fasting and prayer are essential exercises.  Some of you are holy but ungodly.  You come to church every Sunday, but you’re not in shape.

You can’t work out once a week and expect to see results.  Walking through the gym once a week does not get you in shape.  God has called you to be a godly woman or a godly man.  He wants your relationship with Him to be manifested in your conduct and actions.  Godliness is not measured by your behavior in church or the way you conduct yourself in the spotlight.  God wants you to leave your church seat, walk out of the door back out into the world, and do what He has called you to do, the way He has called you to do it.

Few pastors are calling people to godliness.  Pastors are tailoring sermons to fit the exercise of their congregation, showing them how to access the riches of God, making the aim the blessing.  The aim should be the One from whom all blessings flow.

People of God are working to get stuff, more money, bigger houses, and nicer cars.  But effective ministry, ministry for the kingdom of God, can only flow out of a godly lifestyle.  All gain beyond Christ is not true gain, but a weight that hinders our progress toward God.

SIGN UP NOW FOR A HEAVENLY GYM MEMBERSHIP

It’s time to get in shape.  Sign up for a heavenly gym membership.  There’s open enrollment.  And what a deal!  The price was paid in full at Calvary.  But don’t be satisfied with just signing up.  Go on and work out.  Stick with the program.  You’ll soon see the results you’ve been looking for.

Our Bible teaching today is from the Book of John 21:15-17

When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” 17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.

Now let us go to the Word for the rest of the Story, today’s lesson is title: Peter do you love me?

 

 

TIME FOR ALTER CALL:

HOW TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNITAL 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).

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 4)

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 4)

 spiritual-warfare (1).jpg (Photo by breakingdeception.com)

 LEARN TO WALK IN THE SPIRIT

 God’s ideal for the believer is that we live our lives in the realm of the Holy Spirit.  Walking in the Spirit, the exercise we should strive for refers to one’s lifestyle.  In other words, we are to live lifestyles characterized by the Person and work of the Spirit of God.  To be led by the Spirit suggests that same Spirit directs our lifestyle.  It means we allow Him to point the way, to navigate us through the turns and intersections of life. Spiritual Warfare 02

When you are truly walking in the Spirit, in line with the Spirit, maintaining your cover and alignment, you cannot be seen; only He can be seen.  When people look at you, they see Him.  When you speak, He speaks.  Walking in the Spirit is not so much you becoming an extension of God the Holy Spirit, but the Spirit of God living in you, living through you, touching lives through you, and blessing others through you.

Spiritual WarfareWalking in the Spirit means you stay in line with God.  It means you do not break the line.  It means you do not get out of line.  You don’ move until it is your turn.   It means you live your life following the lead of the Holy Spirit.

May the blessings of the Lord be upon you this day as you join in the Spiritual Warfare Battles.  Remember, the devil is attacking you through your Mind day and night.  The Lord has equipped you and prepared you for the task, you are to win this Spiritual Warfare Battle. Now stay focus, keep your eye on the prize, which is Jesus Christ, you are a winner and you will win this battle.

This lesson will be continued next week, so please come back and continue to study and prepare yourselves for success.  Share this lesson with your family and friends by reblogging it in your social media networds.
