Use the Word of God and defeat every onslaught of the enemy

YOU ARE CALLED BY THE WORD OF GOD

YOU ARE CALLED BY THE WORD OF GOD

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, it is Halloween and the evil spirits of the devil and his band of angels are at play.  But you must not get sucked into his game and allow him to enter into your mind, because if you do he will destroy you.  This is a Spiritual Warfare attack, and tonight all believers are under attack by the devil and his evil spirit of angels.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE 008

What is it about nighttime and Halloween that makes us more vulnerable to satanic attack?  Is it because daylight is gone and it is dark?  Is there some kind of association between evil and the dark hours of night?  We are usually able to cope with whatever happens to us during the day, but sometimes it is a different story at night.

My theory is that by evening, most of us are tired and weary, and we just want to lie down, close our eyes, and drift into peaceful sleep.  That is one of Satan’s favorite times to engage us in the battle for our minds.  He knows that when we are exhausted and sleepy, we are not as resistant to his attacks.  Moreover, just as we are about to drop off to sleep, he makes his move.

???????????????????????????????

If we recognize that we are more susceptible to the attack of the enemy at night, we can take steps to be better prepared to stand against him.

Some of my friends tell me that they find it helps them to meditate on scriptures such as Philippians 4:8, which tell us to think on good things-things that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, and excellent.

My Fall Colors 038

Know the truth and the truth will set you free

On the other hand, they claim the promise of Isaiah 26:3:  “You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on you….”  These words from the Bible enable us to remain vigilant even in the dark hours of night.  By using the Word of God, we can defeat every on slaughter of the enemy even in our weakest hour.

Nevertheless, if we have not armed ourselves with the Word and spent some time in prayer, we will fall for Satan’s plan when he brings to mind some troublesome event of the day, and asks, “Why did you say that?  How could you have been so insensitive?”

Yes my brothers and sisters, it is Halloween and truly the old devil and his angels will be out tonight in full force.  Are you prepared to fight and win the battle that is going to come upon you tonight?

Finally, it is time now time for you to strap on your weapon of choice.  I have provided you with the facts, now is the time to learn the truth.  And that truth can only be found in the Word of God.  Watch this short video clip and learn…

CHALLENGE YOUR SELF THIS DAY TO BE JOYFUL

CHALLENGE YOUR SELF THIS DAY TO BE JOYFUL

Experience the Beauty of fall in the North East Ga. Mountains (Photo by Pastor Davis)

Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the Lord has comforted his people and will have compassion on his afflicted. Isaiah 49:13

My question to you this day in offering up this challenge is very simple:  Is there anything too hard for God?  And if you said NO, my Challenge for you is:  “CHALLENGE YOURSELF THIS DAY TO BE JOYFUL.”  Now here is what you must do, “Take the very worst situation that you may face this day and look old Satan in the face, and say, “despite your efforts to turn me around, knock me down to the ground, still my peace and happiness, I will not succumb to your evil ways, I will face you down and rejoice in the joy that my God is providing me with.

Those of us who have learned to trust in God ought to exhibit a dramatically different, positive response to the difficult events of life.  Our attitude is to be one of genuine rejoicing.  This is not joyful anticipation for trials; instead, it is joy during trials.  The joy is based on confidence in the outcome of the trial.  It is the starting realization that trials represent the possibility of growth.

Rejoice and be Happy; BELIEVERS, it’s time to stop pretending to be happy.  It is time to put on your shouting shoes, get up out of your comfortable seats and rejoice in the goodness of the Lord.  Rejoicing goes beyond happiness.  Happiness centers on earthly circumstances and how well things are going here.  Joy centers on God and His presents in our experience.  Now listen careful to this very important message from Isaiah.  He says, “I will sing for joy in God, explode in praise from deep in my soul! He dressed me up in a suit of salvation; he outfitted me in a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom who puts on a tuxedo and a bride a jeweled tiara. For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, So the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations.” Isaiah 61:10-11 MSG

NOW REJOICE and  CHALLENGE YOUR SELF THIS DAY TO BE JOYFUL!

Wake up Lady Wisdom is waiting for you

Wake up Lady Wisdom is waiting for you

Wisdom 02

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

Wisdom 01

Now listen carefully as LADY WISDOM speaks truth to power.

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

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

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

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

Proverb 1:20:33 MSG

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 4)

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 4)

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

 LEARN TO WALK IN THE SPIRIT

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

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

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

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

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

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 2 of 4)

Spiritual Warfare 02

WEDNESDAY INSPIRATIONAL AND MOTIVATIONAL SERVICES 

IT’S TIME TO HIRE A PERSONAL TRAINER

Good morning my dear brothers and sisters, today is truly the first day of the rest of your blessed life, and the Lord wants you to live this day in His peace and comfort of being.  You are marvelous made to live out your dreams, because you are truly an awesome person and you have greatness in you and you can overcome the Spiritual Warfare that is upon you, now train your body and mind to fight the good fight.

 

 

Earlier on in my life while I was training to become a cross-country cyclist, I learned a great secret.  People who make the most dramatic advances in physical fitness have a personal trainer.  Without someone guiding you, you just randomly work out.  Most of us do not have the kind of discipline we need, so we hire personal trainers.  This was one of the greatest decisions, which I could have ever made, because it helped to prepare the three-dimensional self, which we will discuss in the next lesson.

John 14:26 (Amplified Bible) 26But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.

Now let us begin with a physical definition of what a personal trainer is:  A personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in exercise prescription and instruction.

Proper exercise prescription may result in improved body composition, physical performance, and health outcomes.  The decision to hire a personal trainer may be related to a perceived ability to facilitate these factors through proper prescription and instruction or factors related to motivation and adherence. A personal trainer will pay close attention to your exercise form, workout routine, and nutrition plan.

Few studies have investigated personal training for men. Personal training in women has been shown to exercise behavior patterns, improve perceptual benefit-to-concern ratio for exercise (decisional balance), and increase confidence to choose exercise in the face of other time demands (scheduling self-efficacy).  Personal training results in higher strength, higher workout intensities, and higher perceived exertion during exercise in women. Although women working with personal trainers do self-select heavier loads than women who did not, the loads used are still below recommended training load percentages.

No matter if we are a man are a woman, we need to make sure we hire the right personal trainer to help us move on to victory.  Always keeping our eye on the prize and never losing sight of where God is trying to take us on this journey.

Now we see in John 14:26 the word “Helper”.  It is a translation of the word Paraclete.  Paraclete means, “To call alongside.”  The Paraclete, which is the Holy Spirit, will stand alongside you as your personal trainer.  He has the perfect approach and methods designed for your success.

The Holy Spirit is always there to remind you of what you already know.  Whenever you begin a training program, some of what the trainer tells you is nothing new.  When the trainer tells you to eat certain things and not others, there is no great news flash in your spirit.  You’ve heard it before.  Stay away from ice cream.  Close your mouth to pie.  Pull away from the table when the cake comes around.  It is nothing new, but the trainer reminds you of these things, things you’ve heard before, never acted on, or stopped acting on.  This is also one of the roles of the Holy Spirit in spiritual fitness.  He reminds you of all those useful things you have been learning all along.

This will concludes lesson two, and we will continue in lesson three on how your personal trainer, The Holy Spirit will guide you through each step towards victory.  Let me remind you to read and meditate on lessons one and two again to get the full benefit of where God is trying to take you in this process of preparing you physically, mentally and spiritually.

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 1 of 4)

Preparing for Spiritual Warfare (Lesson 1 of 4)

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

We fight to overcome many difficult battles in life and most we lose because we go into battle unprepared to take on our adversary.  However, our adversary come prepared to win the battle.  He knows that if he is unprepared physically you will beat him with your physical strength.  He also knows if he has not condition his mind to win the battle, you will beat him mentally and physically.

And finally he knows that in order for you to win, you must have faith in your God, believing on the name Jesus and that Jesus will see you through to the end because he said in his word that he would never leave or for sake you.  Satin knows all that you know and he is prepared to use your own tools against you if you are not prepared to think on your feet and act quickly to adjust your original battle plans.

Therefore, preparing yourself for the spiritual warfare that is upon you, is the single most important thing you can do today.  In Ephesians 6:12, it says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”  Now let us consider; If it were only flesh and blood we were fighting against, perhaps the battle would be much easier. However, we are wrestling against unforeseen powers that operate without boundaries or the same rules that we play by.

We know that Satin is an enemy of God.  We know that he is a fallen angel, and he knows the word of God just as well as we do.  We know that Satin is always sitting traps to snare us into them.  We further know that Satin is always prepared to fight and win each battle he enters into.

Therefore knowing these things, what must we do? The very first thing is to make up your mind that you are going to become a soldier on the battlefield for the Lord.  It is time to stop straddling the fence.  It is time to become obedient and put on the whole amour of God.  It is time to prepare for the battle by becoming, physical fit, mentally fit, and finally spiritually fit.

Yes, my brethren, you must be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  No longer can you just go alone just to get alone.  The battle has moved into our homes, into our schools, into our churches.  Satin is destroying the family.  The schools have become Satins play ground and the churches his past time.  Satin is all around, enjoying himself and making us all look like clowns.

Now listen to what the Holy word tells us, it says, “Stand therefore, having your lions girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace:  This we must do and do now if we ever expect to win the battle against Satin.  (Ephesians 6:14)” In Jesus name, let us fight a good fight.  Let us prepare ourselves and fight to win.  Remember, as long as you are a part of the process, you are taking a step towards perfection.  When you perfect the steps, you will be successful in the fight.  The battle is not to the strongest are even the swift, but to those who have the patience to endure.

 

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?
