Leadership for the hearts and minds of the people

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

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

JESUS INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO CARRY OUT THE MISSION

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

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

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

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

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

HAVE YOU DECIDED TO ACCEPT THE MISSION?

Written by Neil Flesch

One statement is enough for a mature and evolved spirit to understand the immortal importance of a sentence, of a written line, due to its indestructible invaluable content that teaches how the spirit should act to develop the inner God, or to turn into Spirit and Truth, or to realize in it the teachings of the Bible – YOU ARE GODS.

There are people who devour books, searching for religions, sects and banners, listening to the incarnate and the discarnate, but they do not change inwardly and do not really blossom… They are like mediocrity that goes around the PERFECTION, without ever reaching it…
The Exemplary Word warned these people, by saying: “The Kingdom of God is inside each one, it does not come with external signs.”

Therefore, those who do not know how to LOOK FOR THEMSELVES, and have not FOUND THEMSELVES yet, will have to search high and low, hovering unhappily, in the kingdom of emptiness and painful doubts.

An old initiatic saying teaches: “The good disciple awaits doing good.”
The Exemplary Word also taught: “Upon your patience you shall build your souls.”
These abstracts say to the immature, to those empty spirits: “Learn how to run to your inner self, because it is there that God has placed His Divine Virtues, which, when blossomed, will make you a TOTAL ONE, GOD IN GOD, BECAUSE NO ONE WILL BE CHILD OF GOD ETERNALLY.”

However, let us remember these wise words: “One word to those who understand it is worth a whole speech to those who do not understand it.”

All the best.

With love,

Neil

SHIPPED WRECKED (Photo by Pastor Davis)

SHIPPED WRECKED (Photo by Pastor Davis)

A voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the men on it were able
to swim to a small, desert like island.   The two survivors, not knowing what else to do, agreed that they had no other recourse but to pray to God.   However, to find out whose prayer was more powerful, they agreed to divide the territory between them and stay on opposite sides of the island.

The first thing the first man prayed for was food.  The next morning, the first man saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was able to eat its fruit.   The other man’s parcel of land remained barren.  After a week, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife.   The next day, another ship was wrecked, and the only survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the land.  
 
On the other side of the island, there was nothing.  And the only survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the land.   On the other side of the island, there was nothing.

Soon the first man prayed for a house, clothes, more food.   The next day, like magic, all of these were given to him.   However, the second man still had nothing.

Finally, the first man prayed for a ship, so that his wife and he could leave the island. In the morning, he found a ship docked at his side of the island.  
 
The first man boarded the ship with his wife and decided to leave the second man on the island.  He considered the other man unworthy to receive God’s blessings, since none of his prayers had been answered.

As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from Heaven booming, “Why are you leaving your companion on the island?”    “My blessings are mine alone, since I was the one who prayed for them,” the first man answered.   “His prayers were all unanswered, and so he does not deserve anything”

“You are mistaken!” the voice rebuked him.   “He had only one prayer, which I answered.   If not for that, you would not have received any of my blessings.”

“Tell me,” the first man asked the voice, “what did he pray for that I should owe him anything?

“He prayed that all your prayers be answered.”

For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayers alone, but those of another praying for us.

When Jesus died on the cross he was thinking of you and I!  Now I ask you again, “WHAT BLESSING ARE YOU PRAYING FOR?”

EVERYTHING IS GROWING AND REFLECTING IN THE MANNER GOD HAS CHOSEN IT TO BE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

EVERYTHING IS GROWING AND REFLECTING IN THE MANNER GOD HAS CHOSEN IT TO BE                          (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, the Word of God teaches us that in our getting daily, the first and most important thing we must get in order to overcome the World is, “Get Understanding!”  Let us understand truly who we are, who God is, and who we are in God, then and only then can we know how to “Grow up in His power and grace.”  “Get Understanding!”

We were created in the image of God and given His Character that we “MAY GROW UP NOW IN THE AWESOME POWER AND GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST.”  We can do nothing of our own.  Our growth is totally depended upon the actions of God.  Everything in the Universe was created by God and for God that it may grow and flourish in the manner God has chosen it to be.  Therefore, as a newborn creature in this life, “IS TO GROW UP IN THE AWESOME POWER AND GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST!”

Now the question becomes, how do we accomplish our MISSION that God has given us?  As with all life, so it is with GROWTH.  We must learn to lean and depend on the maker and giver of all life.  Know that it is only God, who brings the bud to bloom and the flower to fruit. It is by his power that the seed develops,” first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.” Mark 4:28.

The plants and flowers grow not by their own care, anxiety, or effort, but by receiving that which God has furnished to minister to their life. The child cannot by any anxiety or power of its own, add to its own stature. No more can you, by anxiety or effort of yourself, secure spiritual growth.  No, all life is the mystery and work of God provided to us through His power and grace.

The plant, as well as the child, grows by receiving from its surroundings that which ministers to its life – air, sunshine, and food. What these gifts of nature are to animal and plant, such is Christ to those who trust in him. He is there” everlasting light,”  “a sun and shield.”  Isaiah 60:19; Psalms 84:11, he shall be as” the dew unto Israel.” “He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass.” Hosea 14:5; Psalms 72:6. He is the living water,” the bread of God… Which cometh down from heaven, and gives life unto the world” John 6:33!

As the flower turns to the sun, that the bright beams of day aid in perfecting its beauty and symmetry, so should we turn to the Son of righteousness, that heavens light may shine upon us, that our character may be developed into the likeness of Christ.

Jesus teaches the same thing when he says, “abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abides in the vine; no more can ye, except he abide in me… Without me you can do nothing.” John 15:4-5. You are just as dependent upon Christ, in order to live a holy life, as is the branch upon the parent stock for growth and fruitfulness. Apart From Him, you have no life. You have no power to resist temptation or to grow in grace and holiness. Abiding in him, you may flourish. Drawing your life from him, you will not wither nor be fruitless. You will be like a tree, planted by the rivers of water.

Many have an idea that they must do some part of the work alone. They have trusted in Christ for the forgiveness of sin, but now they seek by their own efforts to live aright. However, every such effort must fail. Jesus says,” Without me ye can do nothing.” Our growth in grace, our joy, our usefulness, all depend upon our union with Christ. It is by communion with him, daily, hourly, by abiding in him, that we are to grow in grace. He is not only the author, but the finisher of our faith. It is Christ first, last, and always. He is to be with us, not only at the beginning and the end of our course, but at every step of the way.” I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.” Psalms 16:8.

By faith, you became Christ’s, and by faith, you are to grow up in him through grace, by giving and taking. You are to give all, your heart, your will, your service, give yourself to him to obey all his requirements; and you must take all, Christ, the fullness of all blessings, to abide in your heart, to be your strength, your righteousness, your everlasting helper, to give you power to obey, and when you do all these things, your GROWING UP IN THE AWESOME POWER AND GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST is now under way.  Now you must stay focus and keep your eye on the prize.  For you are truly a child of the King, and He requires you to grow up in His grace.

 

 

Living in the Power and Reflection of your Thoughts

Living in the Power and Reflection of your Thoughts

AS A MAN THINKS IN HIS HEART SO WILL HE BE. (Proverbs 23:7

AS A MAN THINKS IN HIS HEART SO WILL HE BE. (Proverbs 23:7

Good morning my brothers and sisters, as you prepare your hearts and minds this day after a long week facing the many trials and tribulations that the world has set forth for you to deal with, let us encourage you to lift your thoughts into the spiritual reams of heaven and think on the goodness and mercies of the Lord.  Let your hearts and minds be filled with joy and praises for he has brought you through it all.

Now know that every single thing you do and say this day is about the power of your thought. For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. As one who reckons, he says to you, eat and drink, yet his heart is not with you [but is grudging the cost].  (Proverbs 23:7 AMP)

For many people, their thoughts and actions are the jailers of their own Fate.  They imprison them, being base they are also the angels of FREEDOM, they liberate, being noble.  Now what a person wishes and prays for does that person get, but what that person justly earns.  Your wishes and prayers are only gratified and answered when you are harmonizing with your thoughts and actions.

Now let us understand this very important fact, there is a world within each of us—a world of thought and feelings and power; of light and life and beauty and, although invisible, its forces are mighty.

This world that is within us is governed by our mind. When we discover this world we shall find the solution for every problem, the cause for every effect; and since the world within is subject to our control, and all laws of power and possession are also within our control.

However, our world that is without is a reflection of the world within.  What appears without is what has been found within.  In the world within may be found Infinite Wisdom, Infinite Power, and Infinite Supply of all that is necessary, waiting for enfoldment, development, and expression.  If we recognize these potentialities in the world within they will take form in the world without.

GOD IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Greetings my dear brothers and sisters, we have journeyed a long ways together, and today is another milestone on the journey that the Lord has set us on.  He wants us to be lifted up and rejoice in our trials and tribulations knowing the old devil is trying to keep us from reaching our destination and attempting to fill our minds with worry and greed as he makes every effort to keep us away from our joy and receiving our crown of glory. But the Lord told me to tell you, not to worry, but Rejoice in Him!

Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice! (Philippians 4:4 AMP)

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. (Philippians 4:6 MSG)

Living a truly Divine Life in the Moment by the Word

Living a truly Divine Life in the Moment by the Word

THE PROCESS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE PROCESS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

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

MY CREED

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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