  • The Promises Of God, The Word Of God, And The Holy Spirit

    1 Kings 8:56
    “Praise be to the Lord, Who has given rest to His people, Israel just as He has promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises He gave through His servant Moses.”
    The Bible is full of promises God has given to His children. Promises that we often forget about for many reasons. One reason being we are consumed by everyday things that we don’t focus on God, another is fear and doubt which sneak in and again redirect our attention to our circumstances instead of God, sometimes we just haven’t read some of the promises yet, or we didn’t take the time to study and pray about them, and there are so many other reasons we forget.
    Regardless of whether we witness them or not God’s promises are fulfilled. God fulfills His promises for us on a daily basis. It’s just whether or not we notice them or not. I often wonder how many times God protected me from potential disaster or harmful situations. I remember one time when I was 10 years old a friend of mine’s parent was driving me home from their house and we had started driving but I hadn’t put on my seatbelt yet. While I was looking out the window I heard the Holy Spirit say to me “put your seatbelt on.” So I immediately did and less than a minute later a deer darted out in front of my friend’s car and he hit it. I jerked forward but thank God He warned me because instead of smashing my face against the chair in front of me or worse I only experienced some minor whiplash. In short God promises to protect us from the enemy and that was a day God fulfilled His promise to me. I went home that night instead of to a hospital.
    Whenever I’m offered extra hours at work I stop and thank God for providing for me. It’s the big as well as the small things that God does for us that we should give thanks for. We see what we allow our eyes to be open to and closed to what we want them to be closed to. God’s Word is ever moving around us. God’s Word is living and through God’s Holy Spirit it breathes life into our very being. It’s something that can only be seen through the Holy Spirit but if we close our hearts and minds to Him then we will only see with the carnal eyes and our carnal sight is truly blindness.
    I’ll put it this way, the Bible is like a 3D movie and the Holy Spirit like the glasses. Without the 3D glasses a 3D movie appears blurry and what is going on in the movie is often misunderstood because of the skewed vision of the viewer. But a 3D movie combined with the 3D glasses has life and dimension. The viewer can see every detail of the movie. The storyline comes to life and all of the behind the scenes complexity that went into the design of the movie all comes together and makes sense to the sight of the viewer.
    What I’m saying is the Bible without the Holy Spirit cannot be understood by the human mind and heart. The corruption in a man’s heart and mind skews his vision and understanding of God’s Word. Therefore man cannot see nor comprehend all of the life that is offered to man in the Bible. The Bible says that the Word of God is foolishness to those who do not have the Holy Spirit. Which is why people like Miley Cyrus can say that it’s “fake”, they can’t see it and therefore they mock it.
    I can’t even begin to explain the issues brought into a man’s heart by the fall, but I can explain this. All the answers you are looking for are in the Bible. Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again on the third day taking our punishment. The Bible says the penalty of sin is death (physically and Spiritually) a fact that we see every day. Our earthly bodies will die but Jesus died so that our spirit could live forever with Him. When we surrender our lives to Jesus we are covered by His sacrifice and we are made new. Every day He helps us to be better than we were the day before. God sees Jesus and forgives our sins. When we get saved we receive the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit guides us through God’s Word.

  • God Will Lead/God’s Calling For Your Life

    Last night God gave me a Revelation for Bible study that was so last minute even I was blown away by what He had coming out of my mouth. So blessed to serve a God who is not only full of amazing surprises but never leaves His children without. I had a teaching all set up to talk about and God was laying Gideon on my heart but I feared doing so as having read Judges 6&7 a week before and hadn’t seen any way to incorporate him into what I had planned to say. All the way up until the last song in worship I was going to teach from 2 Chronicles but God told me no teach about Gideon. Having no idea what I was going to say or where God was going with it, I completely trusted Him and lead my group in the reading of Gideon. A few verses in I still didn’t know as then all of the sudden We hit that one verse where The Holy Spirit just said “This one, I want you to teach on this one. The Called” and that’s what I did. Everything that came out of my mouth was all the Holy Spirit was showing me to say and it came out as if I had rehearsed but I didn’t. That is what is so cool about God and His Holy Spirit, He never leaves you empty when you trust Him and follow Him without holding back. I could have easily been afraid and stuck with what I knew, but I didn’t. And God revealed Himself in a way that resonated with each and everyone of us. What I’m saying is God is so amazing and we should never be afraid to follow Him in His will for our lives in every moment if God instructs you to do something do it. He won’t lead you into something that He won’t see you through to the end.
    The message from last night is you are all called, don’t question it and don’t be afraid to go after what God has called you to do. God will see you through to the end. Don’t be afraid, seek Him and He will lead you in the way He should have you go.
    In the end “Who are we to question whom God calls because it’s not our call to make its God’s” don’t question who God calls especially yourself. Go for it God knows what He’s doing.

  • The Power Of Worship

    There I a deeper worship. A worship where it’s just you and God, no one else and all the cares of the world just break away. Where the chains that have entangled you are broken off and destroyed. Where your heart and your thoughts are completely focused on God and He is working on your behalf. Renewing your heart and your mind, strengthening you in His Love and by His Holy Spirit. There is no greater experience than this one, the moment of total surrender to God. There is power and freedom in surrendering to God. It is something you can not explain to someone but must be experienced for themselves for them to understand. There is a reverence toward God and His Holy Spirit we must have in worship when God is speaking to us and moving we must be silent and we must be still. It is respect for our God and Saviour Who truly deserves it. We must look at ourselves and ask “Do I show God the Love and respect He deserves when I worship Him? Do I fully surrender my heart and thoughts focusing completely on Him or is my heart and thoughts wandering focused on other things?” These are important things to ask ourselves if we ever want to enter into a deeper level of worship with God. To come before God in worship is to come before the throne to enter the Holy of Holies. Jesus won that back for us when He died on the cross for our sins. Only the High Priest could enter before Jesus because man’s sin wasn’t allowed before the throne of God, wasn’t allowed in the Holy of Holies. But Jesus saved us from our sins and His sacrifice on the cross and resurrection now makes us pure and forgiven in God’s eyes and now we may come freely an boldly before the Throne of God. May we understand this honor and respect it with our whole being.

  • Say Amen God Is Faithful

    Amen
    Everytime I think of all that I’ve been through in my life I find great joy in both the good and even the bad because in all those times God has proven Himself faithful to me and He has made me stronger than I ever thought I could be. God never promised that everything would be easy, but He did promise to be with us through it all and give us the strength to overcome. Everyday I hold on to His promises and everyday I see His Love more and more.

    John 15
    New International Version (NIV)

    The Vine and the Branches
    15 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

    5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
    9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17 This is my command: Love each other.

  • We Are Known For Our Love (Accompanying Song: By Our Love By: Christy Nockels)

    John 13:34-35 (NIV)
    34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

    Romans 12:9-21
    Love in Action
    9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
    14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[c] Do not be conceited.
    17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[d] says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

    “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
    In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[e]
    21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

    As God’s children how often do we really show God’s Love to others ?
    I ask this question knowing that I too am guilty of not walking in God’s Love sometimes. As people it’s so easy to get entangled in our human nature. Our human nature does not want to love, it wants to be angry and unforgiving. It wants to let someone know when we are not happy with them. God tells us in His Word that we are to love on another and not only the people who are nice to us, but to love our enemies as well. In order to love our enemies we need God, it’s not easy to love our enemies but with God we can. We are to be an example of God’s Love and in order to do that we need God’s help. If you are struggling with forgiving someone who has hurt you and you are feeling anything but love towards that person pray and ask God to help you forgive them. Than ask God to help you show His Love towards them.

    Father God, we praise you and thank you for Who You are. You are worthy to be praised, there is no one like You. Father God we ask that You will help us to forgive our enemies and that You would send Your Holy Spirit to work on our hearts, so that it be changed so that we can show Your Love those who have hurt us. Father God we ask that when we come in contact with the ones who have hurt us that Your Holy Spirit would give us the words to say. So that we may walk in Your Love. Help us to have a right heart Father God. As it says in Psalm 51:10 “Create in m a pure heart O God and renew a steadfast Spirit within me.” Please help us Father God to walk in Your ways.
    In Jesus Mighty name we pray, Amen.

    Psalm 51:10-13
    10Create in me a pure heart, O God,
    and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
    11 Do not cast me from your presence
    or take your Holy Spirit from me.
    12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
    and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
    13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
    so that sinners will turn back to you.
