EXPERIENCING THE FREEDOM OF ETERNAL LIFE (BY PASTOR DAVIS)

EXPERIENCING THE FREEDOM OF ETERNAL LIFE (BY PASTOR DAVIS)

With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.

God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn’t deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that.

The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it. And now what the law code asked for but we couldn’t deliver is accomplished as we, instead of redoubling our own efforts, simply embrace what the Spirit is doing in us.

Those who think they can do it on their own end up obsessed with measuring their own moral muscle but never get around to exercising it in real life. Those who trust God’s action in them find that God’s Spirit is in them—living and breathing God! Obsession with self in these matters is a dead end; attention to God leads us out into the open, into a spacious, free life. Focusing on the self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God, ends up thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what he is doing. And God isn’t pleased at being ignored.

But if God himself has taken up residence in your life, you can hardly be thinking more of yourself than of him. Anyone, of course, who has not welcomed this invisible but clearly present God, the Spirit of Christ, won’t know what we’re talking about. But for you who welcome him, in whom he dwells—even though you still experience all the limitations of sin—you yourself experience life on God’s terms. It stands to reason, doesn’t it, that if the alive-and-present God who raised Jesus from the dead moves into your life, he’ll do the same thing in you that he did in Jesus, bringing you alive to himself? When God lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are delivered from that dead life. With his Spirit living in you, your body will be as alive as Christ’s!

Jesus teaches us to have Empathy for our Brethren

Do you ever experience Empathy for your Brethren?

OUR CAPACITY FOR EMPATHY IS A RESOURCE OF LIMITLESS POTENTIAL

Here is how the dictionary defines the word EMPATHY.  It says empathy is defined as the identification with and understanding of another’s situation as in; if I put myself in your shoes, I can understand how angry you must be about not getting that promotion.  Empathy is distinguished from sympathy which is defined as the ability to share the feelings of another as in I am so sorry about the death of your co-worker.

My Bishop, whom I consider a true Prophet a man of much knowledge and wisdom once made the wise observation, and he said to me, “That a person wrapped up in his or her own self, makes a very small package.  Such a person is a self-centered individual.  The dimensions of their life are dwarfed and limited.”

This was the situation that Jesus found himself in when he attended a dinner party in his honor at the home of Simon.  Jesus teaches us a real down to earth lesson when a sinful woman enters into his presents; now listen to how Jesus handles the situation:

One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee‘s house and reclined at the table. And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man was a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner.” And Jesus answering said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” And he answered, “Say it, Teacher.”

“A certain moneylender had two debtors. One owed five-hundred denarius, and the other fifty. When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?” Simon answered, “The one, I suppose, for whom he cancelled the larger debt.” And he said to him, “You have judged rightly.” Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” Then those who were at table with him began to say among themselves, “Who is this, who even forgives sins?”  And he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”  (Luke 7:36-50 ESV)

Now let us example some of the lessons Jesus taught us in this story:

Through empathy a person learns not to judge others in terms of his or her own personal interests, likes and dislikes, but in terms of what life means to them.

Through the power of a person’s creative imagination, empathy enables a person to project themselves into the consciousness of others that they may know how the other person may think and how they feel.  Sympathy merely mirrors another person’s trouble; empathy discovers the causes of the trouble with the searchlight of insight.

Through empathy a person may closely identify themselves with anyone he or she may wish to understand.  They may seek inspiration from the gifted, the victorious, the happy.  They may develop a deep comprehension of the problems of the blind, the crippled, the sorrowing and the defeated.

Empathy helps to create harmony in the home.  Family members may play the roles of each other.  For instance, the father can play the part of the son and the son the part of the father, that each may learn to know and appreciate the feelings of the other.

Practicing the art of empathy will enlarge a person’s life.  It will broaden their humanity, expand their understanding and inspire tolerance and forbearance, compassion and forgiveness.

Finally, all of you have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.  (1 Peter3:8 ESV)  Now my brothers and sisters may the grace of the Lord be with you as you show empathy for your brethren.

How to experience Humility as a way of Life

How to experience Humility as a way of Life

THE TOWER OF STRENGTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE TOWER OF STRENGTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, do you really understand who you are when you look into the mirror and see that face looking back at you?  Do you ever ask the question, Oh God, who am I?  What I want you to understand in this lesson and the many lessons we teach here is How Humility works to bring you into the knowledge and power of  just who you are, who God is, and who you are in God.  Re-read and comprehend this last statement because it holds more power than an atom bomb.

The reward for HUMILITY and fear of the LORD is RICHES and HONOR and LIFE. (Proverbs 22:4 ESV) Now I ask you, how many of you do not want to experience these blessings in your life. God is teaching us how to live as that new person in this season and experience a true abundant lifestyle, BY LEARNING HOW TO EXPERIENCE HUMILITY AS A WAY OF LIFE!

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, to live a humble lifestyle and receive all the lords abundant BLESSINGS. 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 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.

Do not get so caught up in the ways of the world and the people that surrounds you, that you lose sight of who you are, who God is, who you are in God, that your heart becomes so hearten that you cannot HUMBLE yourselves in the presence of the Lord.

Understand this fact, “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 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?

Well, listen to how Scripture teaches us to do it; “Let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.” (James 4:7-10 MSG)

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, AMEN!

THURSDAY SCRIPTURES OF ENCOURAGEMENT

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

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

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, this day sets forth for each of us another day of possibilities.  Choose ye this day how you shall live and enjoy all that has been set before you as you journey through this moment and time.  Hold onto God’s unchanging hands, because He is the light of the world and in Him, there is no darkness.

Now open your hearts and minds and allow the WORD to fill you with joy and peace, for this is your day to believe in the possibilities of what is!

 

 

The Word was first,
the Word present to God,
God present to the Word.
The Word was God,
in readiness for God from day one.

3-5 Everything was created through him;
nothing—not one thing!—
came into being without him.
What came into existence was Life,
and the Life was Light to live by.
The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness;
the darkness couldn’t put it out.

6-8 There once was a man, his name John, sent by God to point out the way to the Life-Light. He came to show everyone where to look, who to believe in. John was not himself the Light; he was there to show the way to the Light.

9-13 The Life-Light was the real thing:
Every person entering Life
he brings into Light.
He was in the world,
the world was there through him,
and yet the world didn’t even notice.
He came to his own people,
but they didn’t want him.
But whoever did want him,
who believed he was who he claimed
and would do what he said,
He made to be their true selves,
their child-of-God selves.
These are the God-begotten,
not blood-begotten,
not flesh-begotten,
not sex-begotten.

14 The Word became flesh and blood,
and moved into the neighborhood.
We saw the glory with our own eyes,
the one-of-a-kind glory,
like Father, like Son,
Generous inside and out,
true from start to finish.  (John 1:1-14 MSG)

LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH MEETS REALITY

LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH MEETS REALITY

THE LIGHT OF TRUTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE LIGHT OF TRUTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Good Morning my Brothers and Sisters, yes it is Monday and the beginning of our brand new week living and working in the physical world where we discover the many difficulties of this life when Truth meets Reality.  We encourage you to Be Strong, Be Courageous, stay focus and keep your eye on the prize of Jesus Christ.  For He never assigns you a task that he does not first empowers you with all the necessary tools to carry it out and complete it with time to spare.

He has made you perfect for this moment in time, your job is to be an obedient servant and walk out your assigned purpose doing His Will as you come face to face in the space and time where, “Truth meets Reality!”

This week we will be studying Romans 12:1-2, learning how we can live for Christ when Truth meets Reality.  The Bible tells us to know the Truth and the Truth will set us Free.  How we get to that truth will be the basics of our teaching this week.  Here is what Romans says, Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.  This is the reality of the truth we must come to know if we are to live for Christ.

Now let me share this truth with you as we begin this week in the newness of the Holy Spirit working through us.  There is but one religion, and that religion is the religion of Truth.  There is also but one error, and that error is of self.  Sometimes we allow self to get in the way of Truth.  Where self is, we will not find Truth, where Truth is self is not.  Therefore, let us discover Truth within ourselves about ourselves and move self out of the way and learn to live each day for Christ.  Jesus declared that if any man wishes to be His Disciple, he must deny himself daily.

Finally, let us learn that self is the denial of Truth.  Truth is the denial of self.  As you let self die, you will be reborn in Truth.  As you cling to self, truth will be hidden from you.  Now know this,  “LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH WILL MEET REALITY!

WHERE YOU ARE THIS MOMENT IS PERFECT

WHERE YOU ARE THIS MOMENT IS PERFECT

THE PROCESS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE PROCESS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Godliness with contentment is great gain.

A devout life does bring wealth, but it’s the rich simplicity of being yourself before God. Since we entered the world penniless and will leave it penniless, if we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that’s enough.  (1Timothy 6:6 MSG)

Those who know they have enough are truly wealthy. What you have and what you are getting now is enough. Where you are is perfect because it is exactly where you need to be. Perfection is not something that you have to wait for until one day when it comes. Perfection exists in every moment. It is because every step of the way is part of the process. The process does not exist without the steps. Every step is perfection itself and when you are in it, you are perfect.

The universe operates all things in such perfect precision and harmony that you will only be presented with a situation at the right time and when you are ready for it. Everything occurs as part of the universal plan. You will always be provided with the resources you need in the moment, not before or after. When you know the divine power that is always taking care of you, and have the awareness of all things happening in DIVINE ORDER and DIVINE TIMING, you will be perfectly contented in every moment.

Yes, that is correct, perfectly contented in every moment.  You don’t have to try and allow this moment, for this moment is already allowed to be exactly as it is.  You don’t even have to except this moment, for this moment has already been accepted.  Acceptance is not something that you “do” it’s what you are.

A TORCH TO HEAVEN

Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray—not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God.

(1TIMOTHY 2:8-10 MSG)

HOW YOU CAN ACHIEVE THAT PERFECT INNER PEACE

HOW YOU CAN ACHIEVE THAT PERFECT INNER PEACE

PERFECT PEACE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

PERFECT PEACE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My dear brothers and sisters, I want you to know that you can have that perfect inner peace right this very moment.  It is yours for the asking, for the bible says, “ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you.  It is there waiting for you, it lives on the inside of you.  It is only a thought away.  If you can think, believe, then you can achieve it.  It is not something in the distant future, nor something on the outside of you, nor a person, place or thing.  It is your thoughts of what you want, how you want it, when you want it and how much you desire to have it.  Stop putting off today for tomorrow. Learn to live in the moment, because it is truly the only time that you have.  For no one knows what tomorrow is going to bring.  Your INNER PEACE is right before you right now.  Grab hold of it, experience it, live it and enjoy the pleasure and peace of mind it brings you.

Now understand this one very important fact, and that is your peace of mind begins with your peace with God.  That perfect inner peace can only be sustainable when the created has made peace with its creator.  Therefore, since we have peace justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  (Romans 5:11)

In the book of Philippians Paul speaks of a peace that’s surpasses understanding.  In the book of Galatians he lists peace as the 3rd fruit of the Spirit.  In striving for that Inner Peace, we must be true from the inside, true to ourselves, before we can know a truth that is outside of us. Because when you obtain that inner peace, you will have achieved the greatest success of all times, and it makes your world a real paradise.

And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].  (Colossians 3:15 AMP)

My brothers and sisters as I conclude this lesson, I want you to think deeply upon what is written here today.  Reflect upon the goodness and mercies of God as He provides you with His perfect peace, because nowhere else will you be able to obtain this perfect peace. No amount of money can purchase it, no amount of material possessions can provide it to you.  Only through the love of Jesus and going deep within yourself will you be able to have this perfect peace.  Jesus provides it to you this way, He says, “Peace I leave with you; my [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]  (John 14:27 AMP)

LET US PRAY:  by Dr. Arthur Ben Faust

 

 

OUR HIGH PRAISE SCRIPTURE:

I lift you high in praise, my God, O my King!
and I’ll bless your name into eternity.

 I’ll bless you every day,
and keep it up from now to eternity.

 God is magnificent; he can never be praised enough.
There are no boundaries to his greatness.

  Generation after generation stands in awe of your work;
each one tells stories of your mighty acts.

 Your beauty and splendor have everyone talking;
I compose songs on your wonders.

  Your marvelous doings are headline news;
I could write a book full of the details of your greatness.

 The fame of your goodness spreads across the country;
your righteousness is on everyone’s lips.

  God is all mercy and grace—
not quick to anger, is rich in love.  (Psalms 145:1-8 MSG)

GOD STRENGTHENS FATHERS THROUGH THE POWER OF HIS WORD

GOD STRENGTHENS FATHERS THROUGH THE POWER OF HIS WORD

STRENGTH THROUGH CALMNESS OF THE MOMENT (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

STRENGTH THROUGH CALMNESS OF THE MOMENT (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

We are living in some very difficult times and our families are being pushed to the brink in a chaotic world.  God has ordained Fathers to be the head, not the tail, and leader of His family, but fathers are feeling defeated and powerless to do the very thing that God has placed him here to do.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters I want to provide to you, Mothers as well as Fathers some Scriptures to help Fathers to stand strong on the Word of God and stop feeling powerless because God has provided His Word as your tool and weapon to equip you in your role as leader and head of your family.

Remember, God never assigns you a task without first empowering you to carry out that task.  So take heed the Word of the Lord I am going to share with you at this moment and time:

WHEN YOU ARE FEELING DEFEATED AND POWERLESS KNOW THAT:

God is a safe place to hide,ready to help when we need him.We stand fearless at the cliff-edge of doom, courageous in seastorm and earthquake. Before the rush and roar of oceans, the tremors that shift mountains.

Jacob-wrestling, God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us. (Psalm 46:1-3 MSG)

HOW DID PAUL HANDLE HIS FEELINGS OF DEFEAT AND POWERLESS?

Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me,

My grace is enough; it’s all you need.
My strength comes into its own in your weakness.

Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become. (2 Corinthians 12:8-10 MSG)

CENTER YOUR MIND IN CHRIST JESUS:

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name. (Philippians 2:5-9 ESV)

You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word. (Psalms 119:114ESV)

Oh grant us help against the foe, for vain is the salvation of man! With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes. (Psalms 108:12-13 ESV)

Now fathers, let the Word of God strengthen you as you learn to lean and depend on the one who can do all things but fail. Stop allowing your faith to be like the motions of the oceans, always going back and forth.  Be strong and Be Courageous, for the Lord will never leave you nor forsake you.  Know that you have a friend in Jesus.  Have a blessed and enjoyable Father’s Day Weekend!

ACHIEVING FINANCIAL SUCCESS REQUIRES WRITING THE VISION

ACHIEVING FINANCIAL SUCCESS REQUIRES WRITING THE VISION

THE LIGHT OF TRUTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE LIGHT OF TRUTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

These are the words that were first spoken to one of God’s great Prophets more than 2000 years ago when this Prophet dared to question God as to whether God could bring about his own reality.  God spoke to this Prophet named Habakkuk and told him these words. God said to Habakkuk, I am going to give you a crystal clear vision of what the future for you is going to look like, and this is what I want you to do.  “Write the vision,” that I will give to you, in other words, write down what I tell you.  “DO NOT”sugar coat it, do not add to it.  Just make it plain as the light of day.  I want you to engrave it in such clarity that you and anyone else that may be passing by to be able to look up see it and read it easily and quickly.

Understand this one truth; the vision is for an appointed time.  A time, in which you may not comprehend, however, know that it will hasten to the end and provide you with complete fulfillment.  It will not deceive you are disappoint you.  It will take you to a place in time where your thoughts have never imaged they could go before.   When you allow your mind to understand this truth manifesting itself into your reality, you will know that I am God, and when you learn to trust me, lean and depend on me, I will provide you with all that your heart desires.  Not only that, I will allow you to have a look into the future and see the possibilities of what tomorrow will look like for all of those who truly can believe that all things are possible. If   you can believe in your mind the things I will show you, conceive them as being the manifestation of the reality of now, and then you shall have them because they are truly yours.

I tell you this because I want you to realize that this vision is truly for an appointed time, a time which you may not understand the importance of being patience, waiting on a thing to happen.  Because you are living in a time when everything around you seems to be happening instantly, waiting on the vision I have given to you, may just seem like a dream that is never going to come true.  However, you must know in your heart the truth of a thing when it is presented to you.  Learn to stand on MY WORD, as never before, because MY WORD is truth, and when you come to a place in your life as a truth seeker, believing in the impossible, the truth will truly set your soul free.

The vision is given to you in order that you may know the truth.  How many times in your life that God has provided you with a vision, and you just casted it aside and said this is just another one of those dreams I had that will never come true?  The time has come in 2014 for you to believe in what God is showing you is truly the right vision for the right time.  It requires patience on your part to know that God can never lie, and if He has spoken into your spirit avision, God will bring it to reality, because this is what He said, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.”  (Habakkuk 2:2-5 AMP)

Now to all of you who are trying to achieve financial success this is truly what you must do.  Stop trying to rush things, stay focus on the vision, and keep working diligently daily on the plan.  Everything has all ready been set for an appointed time.  Now click on this link:

THURSDAY’S SCRIPTURE O SEE THAT THE LORD IS GREAT

THURSDAY’S SCRIPTURE OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

Oh, see that the Lord is great:

Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting you are God (Psalms 90:1-2; NKJV).

O Lord, how great are your works! Your thoughts are very deep. A senseless man does not know, nor does a fool understand this (Psalm 92:5).

The works of the Lord are great, studied by all who have pleasure in them. His works are honorable and glorious and his righteousness endures forever (Psalms 111:2-3).

Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding has all those who do his commandments (111:10), his praise endures forever.

You alone are Lord; you have made heaven, the heavens with their entire host, the earth and everything in it…the host of heaven worships you (Nehemiah 9:6).

“I am Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” (Revelations 22:13)

Remember friends, God is who he says he is and he will see all things through to completion, in his own time and in his own way. May your day be blessed!!

 

OVERCOMING LIFE’S MANY OBSTACLES

ANCHOR YOURSELF IN GOD’S PROMISE:

WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:

BE AN OVERCOMER:

Don’t allow worry to be the choice for your life, the decisions you make and the goals you inspire to reach. For Jesus says, “Let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me (John 14:1; NKJV). With all of your passion, suffering and tears learn to release and trust God for all your needs.

BE AN OVERCOMER by developing faith and waiting on God. Make a decision to get to know him personally because he lives within you. While you’re aiming for perfection, set spiritual goals, see opportunity and then the obstacles. Become a faith warrior and decide that living as such brings you into the presence of God because you depend on him, he will supply you with all substances necessary for a life well lived.

BE AN OVERCOMER by not being careless, apathetic and indifferent; learn the meaning of living in a calm state. In choosing to do so you will make better decision and choices. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God (2Corinthians 3:5).

BE AN OVERCOMER and value yourself because God sees value in you; therefore, be diligent in service with a willingness to work for what you need. When you’re moving forth in your purpose, he has promised to supply what you need to accomplish your goals. You are encouraged to be anxious for nothing but in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God (Philippians 4:6). Again I say, God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory and by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

Today if you find yourself struggling with situations that seems far reached remember this, worry will not change your situation. Determine to accept where you are and keep moving towards your goal because life is filled with possibilities, BE AN OVERCOMER.

Good Morning Children of God, welcome back to our Sunday Worship Service.  For this is truly another great day that the Lord has blessed each one of us to be a part of on this Sunday Morning.  Therefore, I am going to lift Him up and praise Him with every ounce of strength that is within my body and spiritual mind.  I invite each of you to join with me and together let’s shake up the devil with our noise of high praise and worship.

Eternal God our Heavenly Father, in the name of your son Jesus we enter into your presence this day as your children seeking your divine blessings over those that are lost and suffering at the hands of evil men and evil spirits.  We speak favor over their lives and in the presence of evil,  they will be lifted up by a supernatural occurrence and their captives will be made to face your waft. We speak peace and prosperity for all that are in need, that this day of prayer joined in by all your children, praying together on one accord will move mountains and the world will stand in witness the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit raining down on the evil workers of this world and its captive will be free at last. Thank you Heavenly Father for listening to the crys of your children.  In Jesus name, Amen!

SCRIPTURE FOR OUR BIBLE STUDY AND WORSHIP SERVICE:  (2 Timothy 1:6-7 AMP)

That is why I would remind you to stir up (rekindle the embers of, fan the flame of, and keep burning) the [gracious] gift of God, [the inner fire] that is in you by means of the laying on of my hands [with those of the elders at your ordination]

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

Now open your hearts and mind and allow what God has given to Pastor Davis regarding the Stirring up of your gifts to be a blessing to your soul this day. Click on the video and receive your divine blessing:

HOW A SYSTEM HELPS ORDERLY PEOPLE CONSERVE BOTH THEIR TIME AND ENERGY

HOW A SYSTEM HELPS ORDERLY PEOPLE CONSERVE BOTH THEIR TIME AND ENERGY

 

 

POSITION PERFECTLY TO CONSERVE ENERGY

POSITION PERFECTLY TO CONSERVE ENERGY (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS

The answer is simple, it is called SYSTEM.  When God created the universe He put in place an orderly SYSTEM that works for the good of all.  Our physical bodies and sub-conscious minds work in perfect harmony according to the laws of God.  The SYSTEM works, all we have to do is follow the SYSTEM. The SYSTEM is that principle of order by which confusion is rendered impossible.  Disorder in space would mean the destruction of the universe; and disorder in us as human beings destroys our work and our prosperity.

Therefore, I say to you, disorderly people waste enormous amount of time and energy.  The time frittered away in hunting for things is sufficient, were it conserved by order, to enable them to achieve any success of slovenly people never have a place for anything, and have to hunt, frequently for a long time, for any article which they require.  In the irritation, bad humors, and chagrin which this daily hunting for things brings about, as much energy is dissipated as would be required to build up a big business or scale the highest heights of achievement in any direction.

In conclusion, orderly people conserve both their time and energy by never losing anything and therefore never having to find anything.  Everything is in its place, and the hand can be at once placed upon it, though it be in the dark.  They can well afford to be cool and deliberate, and so use their mental energies in something more profitable than irritation, bad temper, and accusing others for their own lack of order.

COMMENTARY BY PASTOR DAVIS:

CHILDREN OF GOD, listen up, because time is not waiting on any of us.  There is much work to be done.  The time is now to renew your spiritual vitality.  You must revitalize your ordinary life, your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and just walking around life, and place it before God as an offering.  You must stop living in the traditional way of just doing what has been acceptable as part of your culture, that you fit into it without even thinking.  Instead the time is now for you to fix your attention on God.  Get into the Spiritual Race and allow the HOLY SPIRIT to transform you from the inside out.

You can take what I have to say to you here right now as meaningless, are you can get up from sitting in front of that television screen are just lounging around in your bed.  The choice is yours.  It is time to stop making excuses are blaming others for your lack of energy and enthusiasm for overcoming your weakness in being a true CHRISTIAN that God has ordain you to be, because God wants you to renew your Spiritual Vitality and He wants you to do it NOW!

LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH MEETS REALITY

LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH MEETS REALITY

WHEN TRUTH AND REALITY MEETS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

WHEN TRUTH AND REALITY MEETS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

This week we will be studying Romans 12:1-2, learning how we can live for Christ when Truth meets Reality.  The Bible tells us to know the Truth and the Truth will set us Free.  How we get to that truth will be the basics of our teaching this week.  Here is what Romans 12:1-2 says, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.  This is the reality of the truth we must come to know if we are to live for Christ.

Now let me share this truth with you as we begin this week in the newness of the Holy Spirit working through us.  There is but one religion, and that religion is the religion of Truth.  There is also but one error, and that error is of self.  Sometimes we allow self to get in the way of Truth.  Where self is, we will not find Truth, where Truth is self is not.  Therefore, let us discover Truth within ourselves about ourselves and move self out of the way and learn to live each day for Christ.  Jesus declared that if any man wishes to be His Disciple, he must deny himself daily.

Finally, let us learn that self is the denial of Truth.  Truth is the denial of self.  As you let self die, you will be reborn in Truth.  As you cling to self, truth will be hidden from you.  Now know this,  “LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH WILL MEET REALITY!

YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES

YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES

LIFE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

LIFE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Jesus commands us [all believers] to “GO” tell others the good news and make disciples.  This is what he says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them inthe name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”  (Matthew 28:19-20 ESV)  These are some of the last words of instruction that Jesus left with His Disciples after the resurrection and before His final departure back to heaven to be with the Father.  This verse is known as the GREAT COMMISSION.

Jesus instruction to the disciples was their assigned mission to evangelize, baptize, and teach people about Jesus so that they, in turn, could do the same.  The Good News of the gospel was to go forth to all the nations.

With this same authority, Jesus still commands us to tell others the Good News and make them disciples for the Kingdom.  “YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO “GO” AND MAKE DISCIPLES!”  We are to go whether it is next door or to another country and make disciples.  It is not an option, but a command to all who call Jesus “LORD.”  As we obey, we have comfort in the knowledge that Jesus is always with us.  This would occur through the Holy Spirit’s presence in believer’s lives.  The Holy Spirit would be Jesus presence that would never leave them (John 14:26; Acts 1:4-5).  Jesus continues to be with us today through his Spirit.

YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO “GO” AND MAKE DISCIPLES, the choice is yours, and however, if we refuse to serve King Jesus faithfully, doing as He has command us, we are disloyal subjects.  As believers we must make Jesus King of our lives and worship him as our Savior, King, and Lord, being obedient and always walking in the path of righteousness.

Now may the saving grace of our Lord and Savior bless you abundantly as you walk out your purpose doing his will.  Remember, “YOU HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO “GO” AND MAKE DISCIPLES!”
