"A House Divided"

We are not just divided, we are in fragments!! The United States is not going to grow any more land so we are stuck here with one another until God's Prophetic Time Clock runs down!! Those of you that study prophesy know that nothing else has to happen for Jesus to come for His Church, just a nod from the Father!!! Until then, Jesus said, "Occupy till I come"! (Luke 19:13)
If we "the people" are going to hold this nation together, we must come together on some basic teachings in the Word of God or we are going to devour one another. "But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another." (‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭15‬ KJV)
As long as we are divided we are powerless because Jesus made it clear that our power is in agreement! "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven."(‭Matthew‬ ‭18‬:‭19‬ KJV)
Please, let's come to an agreement on something go we can set a course and stay the course!! Can we agree that;
(1) God is our Creator and He is Almighty!! (Read the Bible, start on page one)
(2) We are sinners in need of a Savior!! "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (‭Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭10, 23‬ KJV)
(3) Jesus Christ is the only way to Salvation!! "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭6‬ KJV)
(4) The Bible is the Word of God and is the only source of Truth!! "The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple." (‭Psalms‬ ‭19‬:‭7‬ KJV)
(5) True Christians have access to God the Father by the Spirit in the Name of Jesus Christ!! "For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father." (‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭18‬ KJV)
"In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him." (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭12‬ KJV)
(6) We are commanded by Jesus Christ to preach the Gospel to every person on earth! "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."(‭Mark‬ ‭16‬:‭15‬ KJV)
(7) United We Stand, Divided We Fall!!! "But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth."(‭Luke‬ ‭11‬:‭17‬ KJV)
(8) We are not the "sin monitors" of all mankind but we are to "Preach TRUTH in LOVE!! "But speaking the truth in love, may GROW UP into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:" (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭15‬ KJV)
If we are mature enough that we can agree with these statements directly from the Scriptures, please for God's sake hit "like", type Amen, just an OK will be fine if you are not feeling to religious today and don't want to "say Amen". If you are in full agreement and are aware that we are in trouble up to our ears, please "share" because if we don't start to "Agree on Truth" we are facing trouble that is beyond comprehension!! One more thing, please don't start another FaceBook page called "Agree on Truth", I personally think we have plenty to suffice for the moment. May God Bless you and May God Bless America!!!

It can be done....

Samuel the Prophet had power with God to the point that as long as he was the Spokesman for God in Israel the Philistines stayed out of the land of Israel!

"So the Philistines were SUBDUED and they came no more into the coast of Israel: and the HAND of the Lord was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel. And the CITIES which the Philistines had taken from Israel were RESTORED to Israel, from Ekron even unto Gath; and the coasts thereof did Israel deliver out of the hands of the Philistines. And there was peace between Israel and the Amorites. (‭1 Samuel‬ ‭7‬:‭13-14‬ KJV)

Unfortunately, we seem to be losing ground in the world system but God always has a remedy and it's usually through a servant sold out completely to Him. The amount of supernatural presence Samuel had was normal for a Man of God that had a calling and had spent time with God. He could clearly hear the Voice of God and spoke the will of God. If you study the life of Samuel you will notice he had audience with the leaders of the nation. As long as the national leaders listened to him they were victorious but when they acted in their on wisdom they failed. Everything that the Philistines had taken was restored back to the rightful owners. Are you losing ground, falling behind financially, having health issues, relationships going bad, etc.... God can restore all of this back to you in a moments time!! I refuse to allow the worlds decisions to cause me to lose sleep because I know my God is Greater than any other power on earth!! He blesses me "according to His riches in Glory"! "I will look to the Hills from whence cometh my help" and all my heartaches will be healed, my relationships will be solid, my finances will prosper, my health will be like the eagles and doors will open that will cause a shift in my life!!! It has been done so it can be done because what God has done He will do and what He's going to do, He has done!!

"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done:" (‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭1‬:‭9‬ KJV)

If God did it for Samuel, He will do it for me if I trust Him!!

Stay near, feel the voice!!

There are those that talk, speak, preach and then there are those that are voices...
When they speak, you can't help but "feel" their voice, yes you hear it but you feel something churn inside of your Spirit! Once you are aware of this you will make one of two choices. You will stay or you will go, if you go and are like most people you will justify your departure by slandering the voice. This voice shakes you, stirs you like you've never been stirred before, down deep!! At this point you analyze your religious experience, you've heard every sermon in the book but nothing like this has ever happened in you. What is this I feel, how does he know everything about me and I have only heard him preach for a few minutes? There are five "office gifts" in the New Testament that minister to the Church and the Nations of the world.
"And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:" (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭11-12‬ KJV)
Each of these leadership positions in the church are by divine design, not by career choice on the part of the individual, they are God's Chosen Voices! The night before Jesus died, He was betrayed by a kiss from a friend and as the soldiers came near Jesus said "I Am He" and when He spoke the whole band of soldiers fell backward to the ground. As the Son of God He was our Savior on a Cross but the ministry office He held on earth was that of a Prophet. The word "Prophet" means "inspired speaker", in other words, he doesn't speak unless activated by the Voice of God! The Prophet is rarely understood completely, even by his closest friends. He often just sits quietly in a crowded room because his spiritual radar is sweeping the room for reasons even unknown to himself at the time. When he walks into a room he often intimidates everyone, just by his presence. This uncomfortable presence often scatters the crowd which breaks his heart but he cannot grieve this power source which is God Himself!! Know this, if someone intimidates you, don't run from them, hang around because they are the ones that can teach you things that no one else can, so stay, listen and learn. Those that follow his ministry and listen to him on a regular basis do it because they know he has a gift that they must be around no matter how it makes them feel at times because they know God talks to him!!! They also know when he preaches, he preaches the "Word of God", not his ideas or opinions. While Samuel was the Prophet in Israel, the "Philistines were subdued and they came no more into the coast of Israel and the Hand of the Lord was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel." (1 Samuel 7:13)
The Bible goes on to say that every city that Israel had lost to the Philistines was returned to Israel. The Prophet may shake you but he will protect you from the enemy, if you choose to regard him as a Prophet. Make the right choice and "Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; BELIEVE his PROPHETS, so shall ye PROSPER."
(2 Chronicles‬ ‭20‬:‭20‬ KJV)

God is Sovereign!!

God doesn't have to have the morning paper or the news to know what has happened the day before on the planet He created!! He is the All-Knowing, Almighty God of the universe. He is fully aware of every action by every human on earth, be they good or bad. He is eternal, He is just and merciful to all mankind! If you know Him, you gained access to him by the work of the Holy Spirit through His Son, Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!

"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." (‭Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭8‬ KJV)

You need not be too upset about the events of the hour in which we live because if you are a reader of His Word, you should have known that these times were coming. But He will work for good what was meant for evil in your life because "no weapon formed against you will prosper". He will even restore to you your loss because He can make an iron ax head float back to the top of the water for you. He can put money in the mouth of a fish for you to pay your taxes, if you are in financial trouble. He can walk on the stormy waters of your life and even pick you up when you begin to sink. It is His Will to Bless His people, He is pleased when you are successful because He doesn't want His children to fail.
"Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them SAY continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath PLEASURE in the prosperity of his servant. And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long."(‭Psalms‬ ‭35‬:‭27-28‬ KJV)
If God has blessed you, tell the world, don't ever condemn yourself because you are blessed!! Since you are blessed you can be a blessing to others. God is in control of our lives so trust Him in everything because He is Sovereign in all matters and has your problems solved before you get up each day!! When you rise in the morning, thank Him for the good things He is bringing your way through out the day. Give Him praise because He knows your end from the beginning!! Bless His Holy Name!!!

It's a Spiritual Thing!!

God is a Spirit and if you are to understand Him and communicate with Him you must "Walk in the Spirit"! We, the born again, are the "Temples of the Holy Ghost", the Spirit of God abides within us. (1 Cor. 3:16) God has a purpose for all His children but if we are to understand that purpose we must communicate with Him in the Spirit world. The Word of God has many things written in it that we can easily read and understand much of what God has prepared for His people. However, when we begin to "Walk in the Spirit" we really begin to get a full revelation of all the things God has for us.

"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which GOD HATH PREPARED for them that love him. But GOD HATH REVEALED them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; THAT WE MIGHT KNOW the things that are FREELY GIVEN to us of God."(‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2‬:‭9-12‬ KJV)

Jude tells us we need to; "But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost," (‭Jude‬ ‭1‬:‭20‬ KJV)

The only way we can protect ourselves from the "cares of this world" is to see what God reveals to us by His Spirit. We must train our Spirit to see things from God's perspective or the system we live in will crush us with its oppression!! "Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty", freedom to live, breathe, worship and have peace in a troubled world!! If you are weighted down with the "cares of this world", "Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up." (‭James‬ ‭4‬:‭10‬ KJV) In that moment He will lift you up above the burdens of this world!!

The other side of the street.....

With all the "doom and gloom" talk that we hear it's a challenge to stay positive in a hopeless society!! We must not allow the spirit of fear and hopelessness to pull us down because it can if that's our focus. There are two sides to every story so let's see what God says concerning His side of the story.

"And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but ALL THE CHILDREN of Israel had LIGHT in their dwellings." (‭Exodus‬ ‭10‬:‭22-23‬ KJV)

Darkness on one side of the street but "Light" on the other side of the street!! If you have the Blood of the "Passover Lamb" applied to your heart, judgement will pass over you because you are marked as God's property.
Just because it's feels bad, looks bad, sounds bad, that doesn't in any way mean that God has forsaken His people. We must keep ourselves balanced mentally, spiritually and emotionally because God's Power and Presence can melt mountains. He can make the mountains tremble or even cast them into the sea if we believe He can!!! We have to realize that all the crazy stuff going on in our world did not catch our God asleep at the wheel. He is well able to "prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies"! "No weapon formed against us shall prosper" so don't allow the fact that prophesy is being fulfilled in the nations of the world get you all bent out of shape and fearful. Regardless of the darkness on the other side of the street, God will pay the light bill on my side of the street, even if He has to rain manna down from heaven to do it..... We are overcomers, more than conquerors and can do all things through Christ who strengthens us under any circumstances!! The Truth of the Word has not changed one bit!!!

Hello, My name is Stress!!

I was here a long time before I was named...... It is my job to skew your view enough that you can't see the good things in your life so you are never thankful. Once I remove your "attitude of gratitude" I can start to work on making you think EVERYTHING IS BAD in your life. Then I get you to join me on the edge of the ledge where "everything is bad", so we can move on to everything is probably wonderful in your friends life. From here it's pretty easy for me because I have you in a vicious cycle and all I have to do is get you to think that adding more sugar and caffeine will help you feel better.... Ok, the next step is I don't need sleep but you do so I will only give you bits and pieces of a thing called a "good nights rest". God created rest for your body to shut down so it could renew itself for the next day. The alarm clock, I'm sorry, your cell phone sounds to wake you but you've only had three hours sleep, it can't be time to do it all over again. You can go to your doctor and medicate me but I still won't go away, I will breakthrough as your meds wane... I have now become your constant companion, I've messed up your cortisol levels, I have them up when they should be down and down when they should be up!!! Once I've breached your walls of human preservation I can cause you to be anxious in a crowd or sitting home alone..... Once I have you "under my thumb" the music never stops, the dance of deception is on repeat and you think you can handle me but in reality I'm handling you!!
Hello, my name is stress, shall we dance?

"I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place." (‭Psalms‬ ‭118‬:‭5‬ KJV)

The day Adam buried Abel...

I have no idea how it would feel to lose a child. I can't even begin to imagine how it would feel to bury a son that had been murdered by his brother!! The first murder in the Bible is "Brother killing Brother", so goes the first chapters of the Bible, so goes the world!! Our nation barely gets past one season of mourning and we are in a state of mourning again. In Charleston, SC nine innocent people were murdered by a very mentality unstable person. He walked into their church, of all places, sat with them an hour and shot them down without a chance!! Our nation mourns the deaths of these precious people and we pray for their families!! Our walls have been breached by a "Spirit of Division" which brings with it destruction and death!!

"And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand."
(‭Mark‬ ‭3‬:‭25‬ KJV)

We must be united in things of value realizing we will never all be the same, we will never all look the same, speak the same language but we can unite against evil!!! Jesus Christ taught us to pray, "Deliver us from evil", the spirit of evil and hatred brought this tragedy to pass!! God's Word tells us that we, his followers, have the power to heal this land!! We must stop killing our fellow Americans and cry out to God for healing. " If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."(‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭7‬:‭14‬ KJV) As Adam dug the grave for one son, I'm sure he wept for both sons because life would never be the same again in their family which is our family. "United we stand, Divided we fall!"

We Americans are here to stay, get used to it.....

These devotions are read in several countries but today it is primarily for the citizens of the United States. America is a country made up of people that came from diverse backgrounds, skin color, races, cultures, etc.... The true Americans are joined at the heart because we are all different but we have one thing in common, we want to live the "American Dream" and enjoy the freedoms that our country has to offer to every citizen. Unfortunately, we have certain groups that want "special rights", people that work the system to their benefit when these benefits were put in place for the needy, disabled and those that contributed by working hard until retirement age. We have a great country that has a unique system that has worked well for honest hard working people for many years but we are now 18 trillion dollars in debt, open boarders to terrorist, school children being harassed for reading their Bible during their own time at school. Our walls have been breached by people that are trying to destroy our way of life that God Himself Blessed us with many years ago. I for one have no plans of sticking my head in the sand. I believe there are enough people in this country to take our country back from the "Blind leaders of the Blind" if we will unite around our common ideals regardless of some differences!! I think we have plenty conservative candidates for President that we can agree on one that is "electable"! We have to approach our presidential election like a chess game. We may not get everything we want in one man but close enough in the important issues at hand to clean up the mess that has been created in recent years. The true Americans are not asking for special rights, just our original rights given to us by our founding fathers. Let's all take a deep breath, be very aware that we are in bad shape but not beyond repair because in 2016 we will have an opportunity to position people that are capable of getting us moving again. If you are a Christian, humble yourself and ask God to Grace people with the knowledge they need to vote for the man that God can use to get us back on track!! It can be done but we have to stay focused and not give up on this great nation!! "The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth." (‭Proverbs‬ ‭10‬:‭30‬ KJV)

Who can we trust....

Uncertainty is in the air, anxiety is at an all time high and it's almost impossible to predict who you can trust!! If you read the Bible and history you will find out that this dilemma is not anything new. When Jesus was born an Angel of the Lord came and announced His birth to the shepherds that The Savior, Christ the Lord was born to save His people from their sins!! The universe shifted so that a Star came and led the "Wise Men" to Jesus. Herod the King was so troubled by the birth of the young child that he couldn't sleep and had all the male children under two years of age murdered trying to kill the Christ-Child that had rocked his world!! Joseph was warned in a dream to take his family to Egypt until it was safe in their homeland. God is watching over His people, He numbers the hairs of our head and knows when a sparrow falls to the earth. When you rise to face the day and when you lay down to sleep, pray this prayer of David!!

"Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust." (‭Psalms‬ ‭16‬:‭1‬ KJV)

Ask God to protect you throughout your day and make a faith statement that you are trusting in Him!!! In the writings of David and Solomon we are constantly reminded not to put our trust in man! We must put our trust in God because "vain is the help of man". People make promises but they may or may not keep them but God is not like "man that He can lie". When you make "Faith Statements", you are allowing your Spirit Man to dominate your Emotional Man!! If you allow your emotions to rule in your life, you will be like the weather in the southern United States, changing every thirty minutes. You want to know who you can trust, GOD ALMIGHTY!!! He will not fail nor forsake you so Trust Him completely in every area of your life. Speak the Word of God over your life everyday so that the Holy Spirit rules in your life instead of every thing else.... He Reigns!!!

"Be Still"

Sometime it is needful to shut all your systems down and be still, mentally, emotionally, physically and in every way possible. When we need peace, we must deliberately shut down and shut out all earthly voices!

"Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth." (‭Psalms‬ ‭46‬:‭10‬ KJV)

"Be Still" means to cease from your efforts. In Matthew's Gospel, Jesus said,
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (‭Matthew‬ ‭11‬:‭28‬ KJV). We often wear ourselves out by striving to accomplish something in our own strength when all we need to do is go sit quietly at the feet of Jesus!! He knows our burdens, needs, cares and everything else that concerns us. David goes on to say "and know that I am God", acknowledge or get acquainted with the truth the our God is the True and Living God! In order to really enjoy someone's company, you must get to know them in a personal way. We must figure out a way to find moments of stillness at the feet of Jesus to soak up His Presence! It is the best thing that we can do for ourselves because His Presence is impossible to explain but has healing powers beyond anything else on earth!! "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." (‭Psalms‬ ‭16‬:‭11‬ KJV). I think Psalm 16:11 says it best, "in Thy Presence is the fullness of joy"! O'Lord, help us to seek your Presence on a daily basis because it is the only way we will ever find true joy!!

Choose to Believe!!

Your choices have an immediate and profound effect on your life!! We must choose to believe what God says about us rather than the other voices we hear!!

"I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:"(‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭30‬:‭19‬ KJV)

If you initially and consistently choose Life and Blessing you can expect God to pour His Favor out on you. This choice will be tested by the system that is a byproduct of the choice that Adam and Eve made in the garden. For instance, if your body gets sick, you will have to choose to believe that you are "healed by the stripes of Jesus"! (Isaiah 53:5) If you balance your checkbook and it's in overdraft, you will have to choose that God loves you so much that He will honor your choice to give into His Kingdom that He will "supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus"! (Philippians 4:19) Since we are programmed to figure out a way to make it work somehow, we often fail at standing on the "Promises of God" because it's so foreign to our human nature. Our human nature functions in the natural but God functions in the Supernatural!! He can do above and beyond anything we can "ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us". (Ephesians 3:20). Regardless of what we are faced with, God has a promise for whatever trial we may face and nothing is impossible with God!! The Word of God builds our Faith so we must read the Word on a consistent basis. David said that he hid the Word of God in his heart!! If your Bible is collecting dust then I would imagine that your spiritual life is dry and dusty also. God will pour water on him that is thirsty, He can turn a desert into standing water!! Choose to Believe the Word of God over the other voices in your life today and God will Bless you with His Favor!!

"Greater is He"

If we are to make it through each day with some form of sanity, we must realize the God is greater than anything we are facing!! Each one of us face issues everyday of our lives, some more than others but God is still greater!!

"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."(‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭4‬ KJV)

As the days go by it seems as if the world is getting more and more out of control. It's not just your imagination, it's really happening. The Bible is filled with passages that describe the "last days". Regardless of what you face each day, if you are a child of God, you have supernatural power living in you!! Look at your mountain and tell it that God is much greater. The God of the Universe lives inside of each of His children and empowers us to face each day. If you are down and out about your present circumstances, you must keep telling yourself that God is Greater!! He is greater than anything you will ever face on this planet. We must renew our minds to be conscious of this Biblical Truth every second of every minute of every day. We cannot afford to think otherwise because if we do we will grow weary in our journey of Faith! Paul tells us that we will reap in due season, if we faint not... I know that avoiding weariness on the path of Faith is not possible in our own power. We have been given the Holy Spirit to indwell us thereby making each of us the "Temple of the Holy Ghost"! So whatever you are facing today, please remember, "Greater is He that's in you than he that's in this world"! When you feel the strain and stress creeping in, you must say, Greater is He.... Greater is He.... Greater is He......

The Gospel of Jesus Christ

We live in a complicated, confusing and chaotic world!! Even so, Jesus is not involved in the system of chaos! Unfortunately, if you go to several churches you will walk away confused about how to become a Christian.
There seems to be more opinions about the way to Heaven than Truth being taught in religious circles. The Apostle Paul made it very clear to the Church at Rome exactly what the Gospel of Jesus was, is and will always be...
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."(‭Romans‬ ‭1‬:‭16‬ KJV). The Gospel of Jesus is the "POWER" of God unto Salvation!! The power to be saved comes from Jesus alone, there is no other source of such power!! Jesus, Himself, is the only way to God!! The only way to Jesus is also very clear in the Scriptures. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?" (‭Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭13-14‬ KJV) There is one way to Jesus, not several ways, just one and that is hearing the good news of salvation and calling on the Name of the Lord! Jesus Christ is the only way to God!! "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭6‬ KJV) Just because "we the people" decided to start multiple religious originations or denominations does not mean that the Holy Spirit rewrote the Bible to go along with mans opinions about what it has to say about Salvation. The Word of God has always been and will always be very clear on how to be born again!! "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." (‭John‬ ‭6‬:‭44‬ KJV) The Holy Spirit draws lost mankind to Jesus after they have heard the preaching of the Gospel. This is the reason that people are called to go to the uttermost parts of the earth to preach Jesus, The Savior of The World!! "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus."(‭Acts‬ ‭4‬:‭12-13‬ KJV) The Day of The Lord is at Hand, time is running out and I urge you to share the Gospel of The Grace of God with every man! We have been given the gift of technology to be able to spread the Gospel faster than any other era in the history of mankind. Please share Jesus today!!

"And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses."
(‭Mark‬ ‭11‬:‭25‬ KJV)

In this passage we are instructed by Jesus Christ, that when we pray, we must forgive anyone that we may have ought against. The power to move mountains with our prayers comes from a combination of Faith and Forgiveness!! I am sure each of you have a mountain or mountains standing in the way of fulfilling your destiny. We speak to the mountain, yet it doesn't move... Could it be that we stop reading at verse 24 thus omitting verse 25 which gives us the final key to getting our prayers answered. "And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." (‭Mark‬ ‭11‬:‭22-24‬ KJV)
If you have been on this planet very long, you have been hurt by someone you love. We often tuck that hurt away for safe keeping until they apologize for their wrong doing but the apology never comes, so we wait......and we wait.... Has it occurred to you that they are not going to apologize and if you are going to have peace you must forgive them. I know they didn't say "I'm sorry" and yet you must forgive them anyway!!! It will release them from the grip you THINK you have on them but it actually has you. You think about that moment in your past but chances are, they rarely do, if ever. Jesus said to love our enemies, bless those that curse you, in fact he said feed them, forgive them!!! They may never even know you have forgiven them but you will be free and be empowered to move mountains. As Jesus hung on the cross dying he said, "Father, Forgive them for they know not what they do"! When Jesus released those words, the Temple Veil was torn from top to bottom, rocks began to break in half, the sun darkened, the earth quaked and dead saints arose from old graves and walked around in plain sight. (Matthew 27:50-53). Forgiving those that have hurt you is not the easiest thing to do but it will shake the dead weight off your life so that you can continue to grow in the Knowledge and Grace of Jesus Christ!!!

What are you thinking right now?

Did you know, "as a man thinketh in his heart so is he".
(Proverbs 23:7a)

We are created in the image of God, "God is a Spirit" so we are a Spirit that lives in a body that has a soul! Our soul is our mind, thoughts, emotions, etc.... How you think about yourself has a profound effect on who you are, choices you make, patterns you develop in life. You have probably been told that you can't change for the better, it's in your gene pool so you are bound to this behavior cycle you are following. However if you believe the Bible and you believe in Jesus Christ then the Holy Spirit dwells inside of you. The power of the Holy Spirit can change your patterns of thought which will change you.
"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your MIND, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." (‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ KJV)
You can be "transformed" by the renewing the Spirit of your mind which will allow you to know the will of God for your life!! If you continue thinking like you are thinking, you will be stuck in a viscous cycle the rest of your life. Your life is a result of your choices, your choices start with the thoughts of the mind and we have been given the opportunity to choose life or death, blessing or cursing so choose LIFE and BLESSING!! (Deuteronomy 30:19) I am aware that we cannot control circumstances beyond our control but we can control our reaction which can allow us to maintain a healthy spirit in spite of circumstances! Remember God works "all things" out for our good and we "can do" all things through Christ!! Start changing your thinking today and by the Grace of God you will be different tomorrow!!

"Prophet to the Nations"

It was revealed to Jeremiah that his Destiny was purposed before he was born!! He was to be a "Prophet to the Nations". AMERICA needs to listen to a VOICE that is speaking the Truth about the condition of our country!!

"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭1‬:‭5‬ KJV)

In the days of Jeremiah, the Prophets-inspired preachers, spoke to the leadership of nations. They spoke out against anything that would send their country down a path of destruction. Unfortunately, today our national leaders don't have a spiritual voice in their presence. The fact is, when our leaders quit listening to the men of God we began to go off course. Now the relationship between national and spiritual leaders is a gulf that is growing at an alarming rate!! It has deteriorated to the point that the voice of the Church has been hushed by fear of offending the wrong person. Please read the Gospels, Jesus Christ offended people on a daily basis. The truth has always offended anyone that doesn't want to here it because they want their lifestyle justified. America is being controlled by an "agenda" to destroy the American way of life based on our founding fathers intent and purpose!! Our leaders are blind and are being controlled by a dark spirit of destruction that is void of the founding principles of this country!! It will take Divine Intervention from God to pull our country out of the dark hole that we are in at this present moment. I'm astounded at the fact that so many people think our country is getting better when we've lost all respect of most foreign leaders, our enemies have no fear of us and our allies don't trust us. Our national debt is completely insane but what is worse is that our President said it "was not a problem at present"! I personally think it's a problem when your debt load will take several generations to even get it manageable. The debt alone lets me know that our present leadership has no love or concern for our children, grand children and great grand children because they are leaving this debt for future generations to clean up. Your character is made known by how big a mess you leave for someone else to clean up after you are gone!! As a Prophet to the Nations, I say they need to start cleaning up their own mess today!!!

The Watchtower!!

In the Old Testament the cities had walls around them with huge gates that could be closed at night for protection. They also had a watchtower on the wall so someone could stand guard at all times and be able to see, from his vantage point, what others in the city could not see. If they saw a known enemy approaching they would sound an alarm so the armies could get into battle mode!! There are chosen ones in the earth that God talks to and they talk to God therefore letting them see what others cannot see. They are Prophets, they feel what others do not feel, they know what others do not know and they hear the plans of God before others are ever aware of what's going on in their world.
"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." (‭Amos‬ ‭3‬:‭7‬ KJV)
This anointing from God will bring protection to the people that listen to these inspired Preachers because their understanding of the times is "ahead of the curve"! Samuel the Prophet anointed David when he was a teenager and he single handedly killed the giant Philistine named Goliath. (1 Samuel 16:13) This victory by an anointed teenager outraged the Philistines and when David was anointed King over all Israel, all the Philistines came against David but he defeated them by the power of listening to God's Voice!!
"David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand. And David came to Baal–perazim, and David smote them there, and said, The Lord hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters." (‭2 Samuel‬ ‭5‬:‭19-20‬ KJV)
Samuel the Prophet had sought David out and layed his hands on him thereby setting him apart with supernatural power, perception and prosperity!
"So the Philistines were subdued, and they came no more into the coast of Israel: and the hand of the Lord was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel." (‭1 Samuel‬ ‭7‬:‭13‬ KJV)
Samuel the Prophet was basically a "Spiritual Watchtower" moving as moved by The Lord which brought protection to Israel. It's not hard to tell if a Preacher is a Prophet, he will see things differently, he will approach things differently and you will feel different when in his presence. You would do well to listen when he speaks..... ( Prophet-inspired speaker that is activated by the Spirit of God and not moved by anything other than the Voice of God)

What are you choosing?

God has given us the opportunity to choose which path we will travel in this life. "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you LIFE and DEATH, BLESSING and CURSING: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:" (‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭30‬:‭19‬ KJV)
In order to experience Life and Blessing here on earth we must make a conscious choice to receive from God. Jesus came that we might have the abundant life but it's a choice that is made in our minds, believed in our hearts, then spoken with our mouths. Once this process of Faith begins to be the spiritual norm in our lives, the Favor of the Almighty God with flow into our lives. "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have LIFE and that they might have it more abundantly." (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ KJV) Yes, God wants to bless each one of his children with many blessings in the earth to bring about His purpose in the earth!! We must participate in His purpose by speaking, by Faith, our choice because our words are creating a spiritual environment conducive of God's Blessings!! "But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may ESTABLISH HIS COVENANT which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day." (‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭8‬:‭18‬ KJV) If you are willing to participate in establishing God's covenant in the earth, He will give you the power to do so. In spite of what "they" say, God has a Plan that is way more powerful than anyone's political agenda. It is time that we the people of God speak Life and Blessing instead of yesterday's old news! We've talked about the curse in the earth long enough, it's time we we speak Life and Blessing with the authority that Jesus intended for us too.
"For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he SAITH shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he SAITH." (‭Mark‬ ‭11‬:‭23‬ KJV). In this passage Jesus says we have the power to cast a mountain into the sea by what we say.... What are you choosing to SAY?
