DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?

DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?

THE SUNRISE (Photo by Pastor Davis) The sun is high in the firmament above me and yet, by its heat, penetrates my bones and marrow and quickens my whole life.

Now before you continue reading and studying this lesson push the pause button on your thoughts and think deeply on this question, “DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?”  The question is not an idle one and it is certainly not one that is meant to trip you up.  We just want you to understand without an ounce of doubt just how Jesus lives and functions in your life daily doing all the things you are capable of doing without you ever having to think about how He is operating within you.

To understand this clearly you must comprehend the meaning of the VINE AND BRANCH.  What is the VINE and BRANCH?  Listen to how Jesus explains it’s meaning, He says, “I am the VINE; you are the BRANCHES. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bear much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.  (John 15:5 ESV).  Here once again I ask you to pause your thoughts, and think deeply on this passage, because sometimes we read it and move onto the next passage without considering just what Jesus is attempting to teach us.

Now that you understand it, come with me on this journey and allow me to share with you a deeper meaning of WHAT IT MEANS TO UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU.  It is often difficult to believe that we who are on this earth can really know ourselves to be always, without interruption, in His hands and under His power.  How much clearer and more glorious the truth becomes when the Spirit reveals to us that Jesus Christ is in us.  He is in us, not only as a tenant in a house or water in a glass, but rather like the soul is in the body moving every part and never separated from each other.

Yes, Jesus Christ dwells in us, penetrating our whole nature with His nature.  The Holy Spirit came for the purpose of making Jesus deeply present within us.  The sun is high in the firmament above me and yet, by its heat, penetrates my bones and marrow and quickens my whole life.

Likewise, the Lord Jesus, who is exalted high in heaven, penetrates my whole nature by His Spirit until all my willing, thinking, and feeling are moved by Him.

Once this fact is fully grasped, we no longer think of an external keeping through a person outside of us in heaven.  We become convinced that our life is quickened by One who, in a divine manner, occupies the heart.  Then we see how natural, how certain, and how blessed it is that the indwelling Jesus keeps the blessing and always maintains the fullness of the Spirit.

My Brothers and Sisters, I ask you today, is there anyone among you who is longing for this life in the fullness of blessing, yet is afraid to enter into it because he does not know how to persevere?  Jesus will make this blessing continuous and sure.  Is there any one of you who longs for it and cannot understand wherein the secret lies?  The blessing is this, as Jesus Christ was with His disciples daily in bodily fashion, so He will, by His Spirit, daily live His life in you.  No one can fully understand how things look on the top of a mountain until he himself has been there.

Although you do not understand everything, believe that the Lord Jesus has sent His Spirit with no other object in view than to keep you in His divine power.  Trust Him for this.  Let all burdens be laid aside to receive this blessing from Him as a fountain which He Himself will cause to spring up in you unto everlasting life.

Now as we pause at an unknown station on this journey for a moment in time, it is my hope that you have thought deeply on this question, “DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?”  Your thought process has allowed you to comprehend what it means to have Jesus living daily in your life, blessing you as you go about doing his will.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO ALL THE FATHERS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

 

HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY TO ALL THE FATHERS THOUGHOUT THE WORLD

A GIFT OF LOVE FOR ALL FATHERS ON THIS FATHERS’ DAY

BY SHIRLEY RHODES

THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL

GOD declares his love for us in John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, so that who-ever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. In giving us his only begotten Son, He gave us THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL.

Today is Sunday June 15, FATHER’S DAY. This is a day set aside to honor FATHERS and encourage one-another. God has given this day and it is to be celebrated in a way that honors him. So today, FATHERS’ lift your head up, pull your shoulders back, stick your chest out and stand tall. You have been given an assignment and you are needed now more than ever in the lives of children every-where you journey make a difference in some-ones’ life that is you’re calling. FATHERS’ wear labels and expectations from the family as well as society. They are given the task of being able to rule, guide, teach and make wise decisions and choices. In all of this we must remember our creator and look to him for instructions to apply to our lives.

REMEMBER THE GREATEST GIFT:

In the beginning God created the heavens and earth (Genesis 1:1) The Bible as a whole is the story of God, the central personality and driving force of all that is recorded. From Genesis Chapter 1 God created to Revelation 22 (the last chapter) the throne of God is beautifully reveled as a river of life that flows through a world where “night shall be no more…for the Lord will be their light” (Revelation 22:5). God’s time stretch across history, in his own time and ways. It was the Holy Spirit who descended on Jesus’ baptism, God’s voice announcing, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I’m well pleased” (Matthew 3:17).  God also chose through Jesus to establish a newly intimate relationship with those who would have faith in Jesus Christ. Because Jesus was God’s Son, Christians taught, God also adopts as his own child the one who trust in Jesus.

Paul wrote, “When the time had fully come, God sent forth his Son…so that we might receive adoption as sons. Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba [Father!]” (Galatians 4:4-6). Life, light, truth and beauty surrounds God’s throne. The vision assures us, God “shall reign forever and ever!” (Revelation 22:5).  God who is exalted beyond all time, history and imagination is yet personal and intimate enough to listen to a single heart crying “Abba, Father!”

Jesus encourages our hearts with these words: “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you: abide in my love. If you keep my commandments you shall abide in my love: Even as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love (John 15:9-10).

This is my commandment; Love one another as I have loved you (12).

So, today is Fathers’ Day, let it be a day we pause and give thanks for their patience, love and guidance.

God bless all Fathers’ this special day, and FATHERS’ use your unique gift of love to bless others and together we can make the world a better place.  HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY TO ALL FATHERS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD! In the name of JESUS, AMEN!

GOOD FRIDAY IS OUR HOLY DAY FOR REFLECTION

GOOD FRIDAY OUR HOLY DAY FOR REFLECTION

Today, we as Christians celebrate this day as Good Friday; It is truly OUR HOLY DAY FOR REFLECTION.  For many farmers it is the day for planting their seeds for fruit bearing.  It is truly a very unusual day when you think deeply upon it.  And of course yes, we will ask the question, what is Good Friday?  Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering, and death on the cross of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Pastor Davis is spending theses moments before God in prayer, meditation and deep reflections on the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ

Pastor Davis is spending theses moments before God in prayer, meditation and deep reflections on the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

How will you spend your GOOD FRIDAY?

We at VINE AND BRANCH WORLD MINISTRIES along with millions of BELIEVERS from all around the world will observe this day as a day of REFLECTION.  Reflecting on the life, death and resurrection of JESUS CHRIST as well as our own individual lives.  Let us pause and meditate on the life and death of Jesus as we experience the pain and anguish that Jesus felt as He hung on the Cross and bore our sins and the sins of the World.   Now let us watch this short Video Clip and reflect upon what this day really means to us.

As Jesus hung there on the cross, nails in his hands, feet and side.  Thrones on his head, bleeding from head to toe, he was teaching us the lessons of LOVE, COURAGE, PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING, FAITH, and FORGIVENESS.  He showed us that Strength is made perfect in weakness.  This next video clip is a short version of all that Jesus did for us.  Now reflect upon this.

In closing, let me make this one thing very clear, and that is this, “we are citizens of a city of God which we did not build and can never destroy, and that city stands on this day taller than anything that we can ever image in our small minds.”   Before His death, Jesus told us that if this temple was ever destroyed, he would rise up and rebuild it within three days.  No one at the time could imagine what He was talking about, because of the resurrection of CHRIST, we now live in that city of God that no man can destroy.  On this GOOD FRIDAY, let us reflect upon what Jesus did for us, and now what we can do for others.  This video clip will help take you to that special place that allows your heart to be filled with peace, joy, and love. Now watch and pray.

This is our day of PRAYER, MEDITATION AND REFLECTION, let us pray for each other, then reach out and express our love for each other.  I pray for you and you pray for me.  I remain your brother in JESUS CHRIST, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!

WHO PREPARED THE PASSOVER MEAL IN THE UPPER ROOM?

WHO PREPARED THE PASSOVER MEAL IN THE UPPER ROOM?

 (Mark 14:12-17 Amplified Bible

Today is Maundy Thursday and it commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles.  It is the day before Good Friday, and it is the lesser known days of the Christian calendar.  On this day, Christians remember the Last Supper. During the meal Jesus took bread and wine and shared them with his disciples.

DINNER IN THE UPPER ROOM (Photo by PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER)

However, In order for the Passover meal, [THE LAST SUPPER] to be ready when Jesus and HIS DISCIPLES arrived and ready to be served and eaten, someone had to have knowledge of the this moment and gotten things ready for an event that not one of the disciples knew of.  Who was that someone and how did they get the word to get things ready for this historical event?  Here is an opportunity for each of you as Bible Scholars to put on your thinking hats, dig deep into the scriptures and come up with some concrete answers.  We encourage each of you to share your thoughts and research with all of us here on this WORLD STAGE.

Now listen to how Jesus set the stage for this historical moment to unfold in a moment and time that the world will never forget.  It begins, 12On the first day [of the Feast] of Unleavened Bread, when [as was customary] they killed the Passover lamb, [Jesus'] disciples said to Him, Where do You wish us to go [and] prepare the Passover [supper] for You to eat?  13And He sent two of His disciples and said to them, Go into the city, and a man carrying an [earthen] jar or pitcher of water will meet you; follow him.  In this case Jesus sent Peter and John (Luke 22:8).   14And whatever [house] he enters, say to the master of the house, The Teacher says: Where is My guest room, where I may eat the Passover [supper] with My disciples?  15And he will [himself] show you a large upper room, furnished [with carpets and with dining couches properly spread] and ready; there prepare for us.  In this case we do not know whether Jesus had supernatural knowledge in this instance or if he had made arrangements in advance is unclear (as in the incident with his Triumphal Entry.  It seems that in this instance this room had been reserved previously and kept secret, none of the disciples knew where they would eat this meal.

However, Jesus already knew that Judas would be looking for an opportunity to betray him without crowds around, so Jesus may have made these arrangements and kept them secret.

16Then the disciples set out and came to the city and found [everything] just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover.  The house where the Passover meal was to be eaten probably was one of Jesus followers, because he knew exactly who the Teacher was and probably knew the disciples by sight.  Tradition says this may have been Mark’s home so this would have been Mark’s father.  Many homes had upstairs rooms large enough to accommodate Jesus and his twelve disciples.  As before, when two disciples went to get the donkey for Jesus to ride into Jerusalem, these two disciples found everything just as Jesus had said.  The preparations for the Passover would have included setting the table, buying and roasting the Passover lamb, making the unleavened bread, sauces, and other ceremonial food and drink that were a traditional part of every Passover meal.

Now that all the special ingredients have been gather into one place, the killing and roasting of the lamb is complete, who do you think it was that prepared this historical meal, and how would they know the time in which to have everything ready?  Now click on this video clip and let us pray together!

We encourage you to think deeply upon this matter and share your thoughts in our comment section.  We minister to you on this MAUNDY THURSDAY from a position of PEACE, POWER, PURPOSE and PROSPERITY.  I remain your brother in JESUS CHRIST, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!

JESUS PERMITTED HIMSELF TO BE CRUCIFIED

JESUS PERMITTED HIMSELF TO BE CRUCIFIED

JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Man, in his lack of knowledge, his vague understanding of the justice of a loving Father, has made the grave a darkened sepulcher, a thing to be dreaded, and an end to all his aspirations and his ambitions. For ages he has feared this ending of physical existence and has made of it a time of intense mourning, a period filled with tears. BUT, this Great Spirit who had power over life and death permitted Himself to be crucified; He came to this Earth for that great purpose.

However, the question may be raised: If we claim that Jesus the Christ had power over His life, then why did he permit the great indignities and cruelties which were perpetrated upon Him and why did He not save Himself from this undignified and cruel death?

Now listen to what Jesus tells us about another man taking his life away from him.  Jesus tells us in John 10 these words, He says, “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life that I might take it again?  No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.” We find another statement given by the Christ after the crucifixion, after He had suffered death on the cross–when He had come back from the spiritual world to commune with His disciples. In the twenty-eighth chapter of Matthew, the eighteenth verse, He again claims the same power. “And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, all power is given unto me in heaven and in Earth.”

Jesus’ Victory over Death

“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).

We encourage you to stop in and visit with us daily, because from now until Easter Sunday Morning we will be presenting you with the story of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  I remain your brother in Jesus, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!

 

JESUS TURNS HIS DEFEAT AT THE CROSS INTO A GLORIOUS VICTORY

JESUS TURNS HIS DEFEAT AT THE CROSS INTO A GLORIOUS VICTORY

HOW JESUS TURNED HIS DEFEAT AT THE CROSS INTO THE MOST GLORIOUS VICTORY THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN (Luke 23:26-35MSG)

Greetings to all My Brothers and Sisters in Christ, as we enter into the final week of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, (which we call Easter), allow me to paint the picture of Jesus’ crucifixion in words and pictures for you. The story is a little longer than we normally present, but because of time constraints I did not want to break it up into two are three parts, just remember, this is not a normal story.

Therefore, I encourage you to listen up and read carefully what I am about to tell you: As they led him off,

Simon of Cyrene the black hands that helped carry the cross (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

they made Simon, a man from Cyrene who happened to be coming in from the countryside, carry the cross behind Jesus. A huge crowd of people followed, along with women weeping and carrying on. At one point Jesus turned to the women and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem don’t cry for me. Cry for yourselves and for your children. The time is coming when they’ll say, ‘Lucky the women who never conceived! Lucky the wombs that never gave birth! And Lucky the breasts that never gave milk!’ Then they’ll start calling to the mountains, ‘Fall down on us!’ calling to the hills, ‘Cover us up!’ If people do these things to a live, green tree, can you imagine what they’ll do with deadwood?”

Two others, both criminals, were taken along with him for execution. When they got to the place called Skull Hill, they crucified him, along with the criminals, one on his right, and the other on his left.

Jesus prayed, “Father, forgive them; they don’t know what they’re doing.” Dividing up his clothes, they threw dice for them. The people stood there staring at Jesus, and the ringleaders made faces, taunting, “He saved others. Let’s see him save himself! The Messiah of GOD—ha! The Chosen—ha!”

At the time of Jesus death, crucifixion was considered the most painful and degrading form of capital punishment in the ROMAN EMPIRE. It was considered so horrible that it was used by the Romans only for slaves, those from the provinces under their control, and the lowest types of criminals. It was not to be used for a ROMAN CITIZEN. This is in accord with the biblical account of CHRIST’S death and with church tradition, which asserts that Peter was also crucified, but Paul, a Roman citizen, was beheaded.

Crucifixion as a means of execution probably grew out of the practice of displaying the heads of captured enemies or criminals on a wooden stake, like those used to build a wall or erect fortifications. Later, entire bodies were impaled. By Jesus time, crucifixion was a common sight.

Although methods of crucifixion seem to have varied throughout the Roman Empire, through biblical and historical accounts the basic pattern is known. The condemned person was first scourged with a flagellum, a whip of leather thongs with bits of metal or bone attached. This whipping greatly weakened the victim, who then had to carry the crossbeam to the place of execution. A sign specifying the crime was often placed around the criminal’s neck or on the cross. The person was stripped naked, laid on the ground with the crossbeam under his shoulders, and tied or nailed to it. Nailing made the victim die quicker, as it did Jesus,

whom the Jewish officials wanted dead before the Sabbath. The crossbeam was lifted and secured to a post so that the person’s feet were hanging just off the ground. Some archaeologists think a pin or wooden block was placed halfway up the post to provide a seat for the body so that the nails would not tear open the wounds, causing the body to fall. The feet also could be nailed or tied to the post.

Although the pain was excruciating, some victims survived on the cross for days. As in the case of the two criminals crucified with Jesus, the legs of a crucified person were sometimes broken to make the sufferer die. This caused massive shock, followed by loss of circulation and heart failure.

Although completely innocent of all sin, Jesus suffered the most horrible, disgraceful punishment known. But His agonizing death was not an ordinary death, for it was not the final chapter. Jesus turned this apparent defeat into the most glorious victory the world has ever known. At the Cross, He suffered for the sins of the world. Then after His resurrection from the dead three days later, Jesus empowered His disciples with a new message, the Good News that He had finally defeated the power of sin and death. Through the Cross, Jesus offers salvation to all who will believe in Him.

The Resurrection of Christ (Kinnaird Resurrection)

Now listen to the words Jesus spoke to his disciples, He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

And ye are witnesses of these things.  And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” (Luke 24:46-49 KJV)

As this story clearly shows, there is power in the word for those who believe. God never makes a promise that he cannot fulfilled. It is up to you to always stand on God’s promise, believe it and watch God work in your life.

When the light seems to be the dimmest and the enemy is attacking you on all fronts it is time to stand still and watch God work. With God there is nothing that is impossible. God is truth, he is also the light, when you know the truth, not what you perceive is the truth, but what God has spoken of as truth, you can rest assured that you will have peace in your life, and your soul will be free to experience the manifestation of that truth and the light that God has promised. No weapon that the enemy may train its sights on you with, can penetrate the armor that God places around you. You are a child of God, and God will never allow any harm to come to those who keep his word, stand on faith, and not be swayed like the motions of the ocean, always going back and forth.

Now know this, God wants you to experience victory over all aspects of your life. He allowed himself to experience a horrible death on the cross in order that you might enjoy the fruits of life. He defeated sin and death in order that you may have eternal life. What more can anyone ask for, to know that if you believe in the word, except the word as ruler of your life, you can experience the joy and satisfaction of knowing that you can have victory over the world.

Now in closing, let me state that believers today should always look to the cross in understanding GOD’S

The Cross is the Symbol of God's amazing grace (Photo by Pastor Davis)

The Cross is the Symbol of God’s amazing grace (Photo by Pastor Davis)

PLAN and purpose for their lives. The cross is no joke; it is the reality of Christ’s death for your victory over the world. You can continue to live in this world, partying and having fun, proclaiming that you are a Christian, but remember, your actions speak louder than your words. Jesus was not pretending when he allowed himself to be executed for our sins. We should obey the Lord in every detail as we seek to live a Christian life as we help those that are lost in Christ, find their way and understanding of THE HEART OF THE CROSS and what salvation truly means in their lives. If we truly want to know how to live a perfect life and experience victory over the enemy attacks on our well being, then I say to you right here in now, turn away from the world and look to Jesus as the perfect example.

May this lesson today be a blessing to your life and the people that God has placed in your life as a blessing to your soul.  Now we encourage you to use it, to bless others that we all may receive and experience God’s amazing grace.  I minister to you today from a position of peace, purpose, power and prosperity. I remain your brother in Christ, Pastor Davis/Master Teacher.

WE ARE SERVANTS CALLED TO SERVE

WE ARE SERVANTS CALLED TO SERVE

CHILDREN FROM THE EMMANUEL CHURCH OF INDIA LIFTING UP HOLY HANDS IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP FOR OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST

CHILDREN FROM THE EMMANUEL CHURCH OF INDIA LIFTING UP HOLY HANDS IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP FOR OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST

My Brothers and Sisters let us prepare our hearts and minds for our Sunday prayer praise and worship service. For it is truly a moment and time that we can serve God, worship him in his high place, and serve each other. We are servants call to serve mankind. Expressing our love for each other is a form off service. For the Lord our God has granted us the freedom and opportunity to go to our jobs, our businesses, our schools and serve mankind. Now he is calling us as servants to come forth lift up our holy hands and serve him.
Now listen to what Paul tells us to do, He says, “For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love, serve one another.” (Galatians 5:13 ESV) Let us take heed to Paul’s message, be obedient servants, serve God and each other, do not allow the devil to steal our joy, our freedom, and our ability to come before the throne of grace and praise God.

Being given our freedom to serve does not mean that we have freedom to sin. Let us keep our eye on the prize, which is Jesus Christ. Let this Freedom encourage us to have a heart for service. As a Christian we know that our freedom is in Christ Jesus, and this would exclude any possible thought that it might ever mean freedom to sin. Let us understand this one very important fact, and that we are to love one another as Jesus Christ’s has love each one of us.

For I can say to you today that a proper outlet for our freedom is simply this: “make it a habit to be slaves one to another.” Now listen to what Jesus tells us, “If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.” (John 12:26 ESV)

Therefore my brothers and sisters let us prepare our hearts and minds to lifted up the Lord our God in prayer praise and worship this Sunday morning. Then let us go out and serve our fellowman. Becoming a true servant of the Lord, doing his will in the manner in which he will have us to do it in. Let us love one another with all our hearts, minds and our soul. Be on one accord with each other in order that our heavenly father will honor each of us. Always remember, “WE ARE SERVANTS CALLED TO SERVE!”

Good Morning CHILDREN OF GOD rise and shine for your light has come to lead you out of your darkness. Open your eyes so that you may see the glory of the Lord shinning all around you. It is time to get your praise on, for the Lord our God is worthy to be praised. For all that I am, and all that I will ever be, I owe it all to my God. Therefore, I will forever lift Him up in high praise and worship. Let us together praise the Lord, praise him with every ounce of breath that is in our soul. Clap our hands, stump our feet, dance all around like King David danced before the Lord to show that we are truly excited about praising Him any way and any where we can. Thank you Lord for allowing us to be in your present this day that we may worship you in high praises, for you are truly an awesome God.

OUR SONG OF PRAISE:
I will exalt you, my God the King;
I will praise your name for ever and ever
Every day I will praise you
and extol your name for ever and ever.
Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty—
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.[b]
They tell of the power of your awesome works—
and I will proclaim your great deeds.
They celebrate your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
The LORD is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and rich in love.
The LORD is good to all;
he has compassion on all he has made. (Psalms 145:1-9 NIV)

LET US PRAY
Most holy and and all wise God our heavenly father. We have gathered here today in the name of your son Jesus Christ, to praise you and worship you. For you told us father that when two or more of your children gather together in your name, that you would be with them. So we are here today heavenly father, with high hopes, and great expectations, that you will pour out a blessing from heaven over the lives of your children, that their lives would become holy and sanctified and within each one of them, the Holy Spirit will search out their hearts, and re-create in them a brand-new heart that provides them with both physical healing and spiritual healing. Father we know that we all have sinned against you, therefore heavenly father we come forth this day seeking your forgiveness over our lives and the lives that you allow our lives to touch. So on this day father, we will go forward praising you for your mighty works in our lives, thinking you for the prosperity that is changing our present circumstances. Revealing to us the many successes that are in our future each and every day, Thank you heavenly father for the manifestation of a new reality of love, peace, and joy that has set our souls on fire and moving us higher towards that place that you have chosen for us to be. Today, we are declaring victory over the devil and his evil band of Angels that have been trying to destroy us. We declare all things working for our good as we move forward and closer to the victory that you have promised us, in Jesus name, we pray, Amen!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE READING:
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

OUR MESSAGE FOR TODAY IS:
I WILL GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE:

This is our 4th lesson in this series of Pastoral teachings to help you achieve success in your calling in this season. It does not matter what that calling may be, Pastor Davis provides you with a set of principles to help guide you towards your desired goals. You must click on this video and watch the entire message in order to receive your blessing.

QUESTION: How important is Alter Call?
It is the most important thing that any Servant of the Lord can do. We are called to bring the lost sheep in from the cold. How can we do this if we never call them to come forth and accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior? When we make the call the Holy Spirit will convict them to answer the call. Therefore, if you are truly a disciple of Christ, it is your obligation to make the call.

TODAY’S ALTER CALL:
If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me: “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins. If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE in glory.”

We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers. You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us. We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions. May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

Good morning CHILDREN OF GOD, it is time to rise and shine. Get up, stand up, look up, and see the marvelous light of God shining on all around you. For God has blessed each one of us to awaken to the beauty of a brand-new day. He has given us another opportunity to lift up holy hands towards Heaven, open up our mouths wide and begin to praise him, for he is truly worthy to be praised. Are you ready to begin this day with praises in your heart? Then clap your hands, put a shouting spirit in your feet, it is time to get your Praise on, because it is truly good to praise God in his sanctuary. God has showed us a new way of living in this season and he has allowed us to come forth with an abundant amount of love joy and praise, now let us praise Him in the spirit like we have never done before. For this is truly the first day of the rest of your life. What a wonderful time to begin praising God like you have lost your cotton picking mind.

TODAY’S SONG OF PRAISE:

Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise in the assembly of the godly!
Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!
Let them praise his name with dancing,
making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!
For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;
he adorns the humble with salvation.
Let the godly exult in glory;
let them sing for joy on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats
and two-edged swords in their hands,
to execute vengeance on the nations
and punishments on the peoples,
to bind their kings with chains
and their nobles with fetters of iron,
to execute on them the judgment written!
This is honor for all his godly ones.
Praise the Lord! (Psalms 149 ESV)

 LET US PRAY:

Most holy and all wise God our heavenly father, in the name of Jesus your only begotten son we beseech you this day for blessings over our nation and the leaders of the world. For we are facing many difficulties with wars and rumors of war, that are destroying the lives of your children throughout the world. Too many of our leaders have left you out of their decision-making process, which is causing much harm and difficulties in the lives of your children. Father we know not what is in the minds and hearts of these leaders, but we know that you do. Your children are suffering and crying out for Help. Hunger and starvation is running rapid throughout the world community, we are in great need of a divine intervention that will awaken the reality in our leaders in such a way that they may stop the slaughter of so many men women and children. Heavenly father we ask this right now in the name of your son Jesus Christ, who said that if I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me. In Jesus name, Amen!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE READING:

I will take my stand at my watchpost 
and station myself on the tower,
and look out to see what he will say to me,
and what I will answer concerning my complaint.

The Righteous Shall Live by His Faith

And the Lord answered me:

“Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets,
so he may run who reads it.
For still the vision awaits its appointed time;
it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
If it seems slow, wait for it;
it will surely come; it will not delay.

TODAY’S MESSAGE:

NOW IS THE TIME TO WRITE YOUR VISION AND MAKE IT PLAIN. In order to understand the message and receive your blessing, you must clip on the tape and listen to the entire lesson.  “DO IT NOW!”

QUESTION:  How important is Alter Call?

It is the most important thing that any Servant of the Lord can do.  We are called to bring the lost sheep in from the cold.  How can we do this if we never call them to come forth and accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior?  When we make the call the Holy Spirit will convict them to answer the call.  Therefore, if you are truly a disciple of Christ, it is your obligation to make the call.

TODAY’S ALTER CALL: 

If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me:  “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives.  I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins.  If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE  in glory.”

We encourage you to find a local Bible Teaching Church and begin to study and fellowship with other believers.  You can also return back here daily and study God’s word with us.  We share the truth of the scriptures daily, and you will find over 1000 topics for study and discussions.  May the saving grace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

REFLECTIONS UPON THE GOODNESS AND MERCIES OF GOD

My brothers and sisters, today marks a new beginning for all of us. For truly it is the first day of the rest of our lives. How we live it will determine the outcome of our eternity. Therefore, we encourage you to pause your thoughts of all worldly things, and allow your mind to become a “REFLECTIONS UPON THE GOODNESS AND MERCIES OF GOD!”

. The Lord has truly blessed us to be a part of this glorious moment. The Scriptures tells us this very important fact, it says, “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1 ESV)

Now let us understand that we have freedom from slavery to our sinful desires and to the Jewish law. But the freedom that we now have came at a great price. In order for us to enjoy ultimate freedom, someone had to set us free, and that someone was Christ Jesus. (John 8:32, 36)  Because Christ has really set us free, we should stay free. Christ’s has set us free from legalistic formulas, from God’s judgment upon sin, from all man-made rules, and from the subjective experiences of fear and guilt. We are to live it out, practice it, and rejoice in it! To turn back to the law and try to earn what Christ has already given marks his sacrifice.

Therefore my brothers and sisters, as we prepare our hearts and minds for our Sunday Prayer Praise and Worship Service, let us reflect deeply upon the price that Jesus Christ paid for the freedom that we now are able to enjoy to worship and serve him in our sanctuaries as free people.  Never again should any of God’s children have a desire to go back into slavery when God has freed you from anything.

Now let us begin this day to lift him up in praise and worship thanking him for all the goodness that he has done in our lives and the lives of our family and friends. For on this day we are surely a blessed people.  As we pray for you on the first day of the rest of your life, use it as a day of, “REFLECTIONS UPON THE GOODNESS AND MERCIES OF GOD!”

CHILDREN OF GOD, we have come to the end of the year 2013, and set to enter into a brand new year with great expectations, with great hopes, joy and thanksgiving for all that God has blessed us to have and what He is offering us for this coming year.  With all the many wonderful blessings we have been given, our hearts should be full of nothing but praises.  So let us lift Him up on this last Sunday of 2013 with songs of praises and a heart that has been made for worship, For He is truly worthy of all our praises.  Prayer and Praises is what I do, so humbly ask you to join in with me this day and let us lift His Holy name up in Prayer, Praise and Worship this day in a very special way.  Be Bold in your Praises this day and let the world know that you are a prayer warrior and you will not allow nothing to come before your prayer and praises for what God has done for you.  Let it begin NOW! Clap your hands in praise for the Lord, never mind what other people may say or thank of you, just do it NOW.  Call out the name JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, I thank you and I bless you for your mighty works.

LET US PRAY:

Eternal God, Our Heavenly Father, it is with great joy that I enter into your present this day just to think you for bringing us through the many trials and tribulations that we were confronted with throughout our journey this year.  We now stand at the cross roads that will take us into a brand new year, some of us will make it into the promise land while others will succumb to the elements on this side of the old year.  We thank you for the opportunity Heavenly Father to be in the flow of this brand new life’s journey.  You have comforted us through this journey with the protection of your angels and provided us with shelter from the storms, food for the soul, strength of both body and mind, filled our hearts with the spirit and power of love, and sent the Holy Spirit to teach us that we are unique and we can do all things that our hearts and minds desires when we remain in the flow and stay connected to the main power source of Jesus Christ.  For this and so many other reason Heaven Father, we are eternally grateful, and all that we do this day and the rest of our days on this earth, we will lift you up in prayer, praise and worship. We thank you for the power and present of the Holy Spirit into this brand new year, in Jesus name we pray, AMEN!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE IS:     (James 4:13-17 NIV)

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.”Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

TODAY’S MESSAGE:

Stop forgetting the main Ingredient; in today’s message Pastor Davis shares with us a very important message concerning the missing ingredient that has cause a lot of us much pain and heartache in the year 2013, and he attempts to share with us ways that we can avoid such pain and misery going into 2014.  Now click on this video clip and get ready to receive your new year’s blessings.

Good Morning CHILDREN OF GOD, we have entered into the Lord’s class room of higher learning this morning to continue our Christmas Service and the Spirit of Christmas in lifting up our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the highest praises and thanksgiving for our deliverances, as we celebrate His magnificent birth more than 2000 years ago.  We are truly blessed to be in His Holy presence this morning as one people to praise and honor God for sending us a Savior.  Therefore, let us together share in what God has set before us this day with this short video clip of Silent Night.

SONG OF PRAISE SILENT NIGHT:

Mary is the type of woman who puts her faith into action.  She not only says :Lord your will be done, but she also hurries to see God at work in the life of her relative Elizabeth.  The journey to Judea that Mary took was not a simple drive to the next town.  It was a difficult journey that would have taken at least three days at that time.  Mary did not let that stop her from going to Elizabeth rejoicing with her, and praising the Lord for fulfilling His promises.  Click on this short video clip and let’s watch together.

LET US PRAY FOR PEACE:

Father in Heaven, we honor you and we praise you this day for sending us a divine savior to bring joy into our hearts and peace on earth to all mankind.  We know that there is much work to be done to change the harden hearts and unbelieving minds; that we as a people can live together as one people serving one God and have complete peace without wars and fighting among each other.  But we as believers know that you are God and God all by yourself, therefore Father, we pray for divine intervention in this world, in this season that the hearts and minds of mankind everywhere will be changed in such a way that peace and goodwill towards all people will break out all over the world.  We seek this peace in the name of Jesus, AMEN!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE THE BIRTH OF JESUS FORETOLD  (LUKE 1:26-30 ESV)

In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”  Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.

THE GOOD NEWS WORSHIP MESSAGE:

An Angel promises the birth of Jesus to Mary.  Six months after Gabriel delivered God’s message to Zechariah, God sent the angel with another message, this time to a virgin named Mary.  The angel Gabriel had also appeared to the prophet Daniel more than five hundred years earlier.  Each time Gabriel appeared he brought important messages from God, this time was no exception, he was bringing THE GOOD NEWS to a virgin named Mary.  Let’s watch and see her reaction.

Our God is truly an awesome God, and His message and gift to us is a powerful one.  Now let us conclude our Praise and Worship Service with our final video of Silent Night.

 

TODAY’S ALTER CALL: 

If you are a person studying this lesson with us today and have not received the saving grace of the Lord and would like to join the Lord’s family of BELIEVERS and receive ETERNAL LIFE, we simply ask you to, “BELIEVE!”

Now repeat this short prayer with me:  “Lord I am a sinner, I have sinned against you, I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, and on the third day you raised him from the grave and today He lives.  I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and come into my heart and cleanse me of my sins.  If you have prayed this prayer with me, you now are saved and have ETERNAL LIFE  in glory.”

CLOSING PRAYER:

Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings have been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith—to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.

There were sheepherders camping in the neighborhood. They had set night watches over their sheep. Suddenly, God‘s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified. The

BABY JESUS IN A MANAGER

BABY JESUS IN A MANAGER

angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David‘s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”  (Luke 2:8-12 MSG).

The birth of Jesus to a virgin is a miracle that many people find difficult to believe.

The Birth of Baby Jesus was the birth of a baby that changed the world.  Now watch this short video clip and allow yourself to be changed, then continue reading on the other side of this clip.

Jesus miracles, transfiguration, and resurrection were all actual, historical events that defy explanation.  They were acts of God in a human worldChristians faith, however, rests not on the virgin birth-indeed two of the four Gospels don’t even mention it.  Faith rests on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, not on his virgin birth.  However, the virgin birth reveals two important facts.  (1)  In Jesus, God began a “new creation,” for through Jesus life, death, and resurrection, sin’s power would be broken.  In Jesus, people can come to God for a personal relationship and be freed from the power of sin(2)  Jesus was God’s son before he was even conceived in Mary’s womb.  He did not become God’s Son at a latter time.  He was not accepted as God’s Son because of good behavior or obedience.  He was not a man promoted to that position.  God’s Son was born “God’s Son.”  In the birth of Jesus, God himself became human and entered the world for fallen human beings!  Therein lies the miracle!  People are not meant to explain it, prove it, or ignore it-they are meant to believe it and worship God who made it happen.

We pray that the our CHRISTMAS Messages have touched your heart in some small way, that will allow you to reach out and share your blessings and joy in celebrating the birth of Our Lord and Savior with all those you come in contact with this CHRISTMAS SEASON.  Let it be filled with joy, praise and thanksgiving.  Because Jesus is truly the only reason for this season.

Please return for our very special SUNDAY MORNING PRAYER PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE beginning at 0700 each SUNDAY MORNING.  May the Peace of our Lord and Savior be with you now and forever, AMEN!

SUNDAY PRAYER PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE 47 REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS

Good  Morning Children of God, if it’s Sunday it is time to lift up Holy Hands, open our spiritual eyes wide so that we may see the glory of the Lord.  Put on our praise face, put on our praise garments, slip on our shouting shoes and begin to praise the name of the Lord.  For this is the day that He has made, it is now time for us to REJOICE and be glad in it.  Aren’t you glad you are among the living today.  Let us shout, glory, glory, glory, I thank you Jesus for bringing me up on the rough side of the mountain.  I would not have made it, if you had not been there, reaching down and simply saying come my child.  Oh, how thankful I am to know that my God can do all things but fail.  I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind but now I see, I thank you Lord for saving a nobody like me.  Today, I am going to REJOICE and lift up your Holy Name.  For you are worthy to be PRAISED!

TODAY’S SONG OF PRAISE:  Psalm 149

Praise ye the Lord, Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.

Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;

To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.

BY EXPRESSING HUMILITY DO PEOPLE PRECEIVE YOU TO BE A WEAK PERSON?

BY EXPRESSING HUMILITY DO PEOPLE PRECEIVE YOU TO BE A WEAK PERSON?

STRENGTH IN HUMILITY (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

STRENGTH IN HUMILITY (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

This is truly a profound question, one that I hope each person would pause their worldly thoughts and ponder the true answer to how they perceive themselves when people call them weak minded, cowards, and so many other things that we know that we are not, when we are attempting to live the life of Jesus Christ expressing our Humility towards our fellowman.

Now let us look at how the Apostle Paul teaches us by showing the example of Jesus as the Humble Servant.  He says, “Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:]”

Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly graspedor retained, but stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being.

And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!  (Philippians 2:5-8 AMP)

We as believers are to sit ourselves apart from the world.  In other words, we are to humble ourselves before God and resist the evil things that the devil will set before us.  We find that the bible dictionary meaning of Humility is, “the quality or condition of being humble, modest opinion or estimate of one’s own importance.”

Now let us take a look at what James tells us about this subject.  He says, “Submit yourselves’ therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.  Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. (James 4:7-10 ESV).

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, 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 for 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 humbleHumility 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?

IS THERE ANYTHING TO HARD FOR GOD?

BACK GROUND SCRIPTURES FOR THIS SERIES OF LESSONS: Mark 11:13-14, 20-25

CHILDREN OF GOD, we present you the third and final lesson in this series on FAITH and PRAYER.  In our SUNDAY PRAISE, PRAYER AND WORSHIP SERVICE, we will present the SUMMARY of this week’s lesson.  We encourage you to WORSHIP with us for the final conclusion of JESUS powerful teaching on FAITH and PRAYER.

JESUS wants us to know that the word IMPOSSIBILITY is not a word that should be used in our lexicon.  In understanding JESUS teaching in this text we should be moved into action.  Know that in our minds we can do anything in the name of JESUS.  There is no mountain to high that we cannot climb, no valley to low that we cannot walk through.

We should not become like the motions of the ocean.  Always going back and forth, but we should be so rooted and grounded in our faith that no matter what comes after us we will always be able to with stand it.  We are built of strong timber, the timber of Jesus Christ.  When God says that nothing is impossible, we must learn to trust God in his word.  Knowing that God can never tell a lie, if he does he will deny himself.  God never makes a promise that he does not fulfill.  Our faith must be rooted and grounded in the word of God.  Our spirit must be one of can do.  Having a can do spirit will remove the mountains of impossibility from your life.

When the doctors says to you that you only have six months to live, and there is nothing else they can do for you.  Your attitude must be one of faith.  Faith in Jesus, Faith that if Jesus said it, it is a done deal; Jesus said that if you believe in God without doubt in your mind, nothing is impossible.

Change your thinking and you will change your life.  Tell the doctor that my God said not until he says it is time for me to go, that I will leave this world.  I can overcome this, I will overcome this because I am leaning and depending on my God.  I am an over comer, I am born in the Spirit of the living God.  For me nothing is impossible.  Today not only do I talk the talk, but I am walking the walk.  I am walking out my faith in the name of Jesus.  I know that my God did not bring me this far to leave me.  He promised me that He would never put on me more than I could bear.  I am standing on that promise, because I know that this check that my God has given to me, I can deposit it into my bank account and it will never bounce.  Faith, Faith, Faith, it is my faith that will always see me through.  Come on now let’s walk it out, talk it out.  Let’s tell the devil, devil get thee behind me, because I am holding onto My God’s unchanging hands.

Faith, Faith, Faith, there is nothing that is impossible in my world.  Step by step I am moving closer to where My God is trying to take me. It was nothing but Grace that brought me through the tribulations of this life.  It was nothing but God’s grace that brought me up on the rough side of the mountain and planted my feet right here where I am standing today.

Now sing this hymn with me, Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!  I once was lost but now I am found, I was blind but now I see.  Taws grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved; how precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed!”

It was God’s grace that gave me the opportunity to change my thinking, It is my faith that has sustained me, it is my faith that has healed me, and I know that it is my faith that will move any mountain in my life, because I believe in the true and living God. What about you?  Do you believe that, “HAVING FAITH IN GOD CAN ACCOMPLISH THE IMPOSSIBLE?”

Truly, I say to you today, hold onto your FAITH and believe in the IMPOSSIBLE.  Know that God is real, and He can move those Mountains that are hindering you from moving forward out of your life.

We bless this series to you that it has provided you with a portion of inspiration and encouragement to reach out, stretch out and lifted up to that high place that God is pushing you towards.  In Jesus name we pray, AMEN!

WHY DOES THE WORLD CONSIDER YOU WEAK WHEN YOU SHOW HUMILITY?

WHY DOES THE WORLD CONSIDER YOU WEAK WHEN YOU SHOW HUMILITY?

In this photo collection, I share with you a few photos of my humble beginning, which many of you I am certain will relate to.

In the world we live in today, if we are not displaying the Macho person we are considered to be a coward or weak minded individual.  Our society does not like weaklings, and you can clearly see this in our school children bulling those who they consider weaklings.  Let us understand that HUMILITY does not come NATURALLY.  But when the BELIEVERS humble themselves under the mighty power of God, they will actually be submitting to HIS care and protection.

Therefore, we as believers are to sit ourselves apart from the world.  In other words, we are to HUMBLE ourselves before GOD and resist the evil things that the devil will set before us.  We find that the bible dictionary meaning of HUMILITY is, “the quality or condition of being HUMBLE, modest opinion or estimate of one’s own importance.”

Now let us take a look at what James tells us about this subject.  He says, “Submit yourselves’ therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.  Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. HUMBLE yourselves before the LORD, and he will exalt you. (James 4:7-10 ESV).

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, 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 for 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.  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 moments 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?  Now answer these two questions and live a HUMBLE LIFE WITH GREAT HUMILITY.

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.  I remain your brother in JESUS CHRIST, Pastor Davis/Master Teacher!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:  (MATTHEW 14:22-33 MSG) WALKING ON WATER

As soon as the meal was finished, he insisted that the disciples get in the boat and go on ahead to the other side while he dismissed the people. With the crowd dispersed, he climbed the mountain so he could be by himself and pray. He stayed there alone, late into the night.

Meanwhile, the boat was far out to sea when the wind came up against them and they were battered by the waves. At about four o’clock in the morning, Jesus came toward them walking on the water. They were scared out of their wits. “A ghost!” they said, crying out in terror.

 But Jesus was quick to comfort them. “Courage, it’s me. Don’t be afraid.”

Peter, suddenly bold, said, “Master, if it’s really you, call me to come to you on the water.”

He said, “Come ahead.”

Jumping out of the boat, Peter walked on the water to Jesus. But when he looked down at the waves churning beneath his feet, he lost his nerve and started to sink. He cried, “Master, save me!”

Jesus didn’t hesitate. He reached down and grabbed his hand. Then he said, “Faint-heart, what got into you?”

The two of them climbed into the boat, and the wind died down. The disciples in the boat, having watched the whole thing, worshiped Jesus, saying, “This is it! You are God’s Son for sure!”

HUMBLE YOURSELVES BEFORE THE LORD AND HE WILL EXALT YOU

HUMBLE YOURSELVES BEFORE THE LORD AND HE WILL EXALT YOU

THE EARLY MORNING SUNRISE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE EARLY MORNING SUNRISE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

As believers we are all called to live our lives as CHRIST would have us to do so.  Learning to have a spirit of HUMILITY, leaving our selfish ambition and conceit behind, while selfish ambition and conceit can ruin unity, genuine humility can build it.  Being humble involves having a true perspective about ourselves in relation to GOD, which in turn gives us a correct perspective on our relationships with others.  Beinghumble does not mean that we should put ourselves down.   Instead humility is a healthy respect for whoGod is, and then a healthy respect for ourselves because of what God did on our behalf.  Thinking of others as better than ourselves means that we are aware of our own failings and are thus willing to accept failings in others without looking down on them.  Therefore, the question still remains, “HOW DO YOU LIVE AN UNSELFISH LIFE?”

JAMES 5:16 ESV Therefore, confess your SINS to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. Listen to what Paul tells us in PHILIPPIANS, he says, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:4 ESV).  As we read this, let us understand that we as believers should not be completely absorbed in his or her own affairs, but should also be interested in others, nothing their good points and qualities.  A sure cure for selfish ambition is appreciative recognition of others’ good qualities and their walk with the LORD.  It is easy to get caught up in competition, aggressive acquiring and vying for our own rights and needs.  But compared to knowing Christ, those interests seem shallow.  We need Christ’s attitude of self-sacrifice to look beyond ourselves to the needs of others. Now read and listen to how the scriptures teach us HOW TO LIVE AN UNSELFISH LIFE! MATTHEW 5:6 ESV “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

James 5:15 ESV And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

James 4:10 ESV Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.

James 4:8 ESV Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

James 4:7 ESV Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

James 4:3 ESV You asks and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.

James 4:1 ESV What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this that your passions are at war within you?

Romans 12:10 ESV Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.

John 13:34 ESV A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

1 JOHN 4:10 ESV In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

1 JOHN 2:1-5 ESV My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, JESUS CHRIST the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: …and by obeying the word of God we can truly learn how to live and unselfishness life by HUMBLING YOURSELVES BEFORE THE LORD AND ALLOWING HIM TO EXALT YOU!
