Give instruction to a wise man and he will be yet wiser; teach a righteous man
(one upright and in rightstanding with God) and he will increase in learning.
As I come before you my brothers and sisters I purposely come with an earnest intent into following Holy Spirits direction;
and I do so by inclining my ear to whatever He would have me say today. I will speak His truth, free from any obscurity, free from any worldly nonsense. For speaking Gods Word with integrity and in purity is a must. For it is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. And it must be treated as such.
So, let us be mindfully attentive to what Holy Spirit has to say to us today. Do away with any preconceived notions about what you will hear from this pulpit today. Allow yourself to receive the comprehensive insight that only comes when you listen to His words respectfully, not losing sight of them. In doing so, give yourself an advantage by authorizing them to penetrate deep within your hearts, enabling the life and healing that they contain to enter into those who find them, Amen!
We will begin by going to the Scriptures that Holy Spirit has given me as my directive for the times. They are powerful Prescriptions that will move you into an arena of excellence which will provide you with a manifestation of God's Promises and Blessings.
A Word (Warning) to the Wise!!
2 Timothy 3:1-7 (AMPC)
1 BUT UNDERSTAND this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear].
2 For people will be lovers of self and [utterly] self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate [greedy] desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffing), disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane.
3 [They will be] without natural [human] affection (callous and inhuman), relentless (admitting of no truce or appeasement); [they will be] slanderers (false accusers, troublemakers), intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good.
4 [They will be] treacherous [betrayers], rash, [and] inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God.
5 For [although] they hold a form of piety (true religion), they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it [their conduct belies the genuineness of their profession]. Avoid [all] such people [turn away from them].
Now take a look at this!
6 For among them are those who worm their way into homes and captivate silly and weak-natured and spiritually dwarfed women, loaded down with [the burden of their] sins [and easily] swayed and led away by various evil desires and seductive impulses.
7 [These weak women will listen to anybody who will teach them]; they are forever inquiring and getting information, but are never able to arrive at a recognition and knowledge of the Truth.
I believe this has already been set in motion and if the body of Christ fails in counter attacking with the Word of God and overwhelming the household with the truth, all will be lost! And that's just the point that none shall be lost, we cannot change what God has decreed in the book of Revelations. It will happen just as it was revealed to the Apostle John. Our victory lies in us bringing the multitude of unbelievers to the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The inevitable is coming and we must do our best to make sure that none shall be lost.
I will raise up shepherds over them who will tend them, and they will no longer be afraid or dismayed, nor will any go missing, declares the LORD.
This was to fulfill the word He had spoken: "I have not lost one of those You have given Me.
Rise Up Our United States
I have lived through several United States Presidents prior to our current President Trump. In my lifetime, I have never seen nor heard of a President scrutinized over every word he speaks, humiliated by the public to the point of disgrace, slandered, ridiculed, insulted, lied to & beyond common logic, threatened with death, threatened to rape our Beautiful First Lady, Our First Lady Disrespected, and have his children also insulted & humiliated.
I am truly ashamed of the people of MY country. I am ashamed of the ruthless, hating, cruel, Trump haters who display themselves as to having no pride, morals, ethics nor values in Our Country's traditions. Our Elders taught us 30, 40+ yrs ago to respect our President, whether we voted for them or not, and all these news stations and reporters who feel they have the right to carry on with deceitful lies and say the things they do for a good story. Every other President before he was elected, that took the oath of office, was left alone, wasn't on the news 24/7, scrutinized by their every word. ALWAYS BEING PRESSURED to do this or that and never given the time to take care of the important work this country really needs. I know he is not perfect, very different than what we've become accustomed to but ENOUGH is ENOUGH, LEAVE THE MAN ALONE AND ALLOW HIM DO HIS JOB!!
IF ANYTHING PRAY FOR THE OFFICE AND THE MAN WHO HOLDS THE OFFICE.
None of the other Presidents in their times were spotless or perfect either. I want President Donald Trump to succeed and try to make our America great again! I know that there are many out there that want this Country to fail, and the evil that is absorbing their thinking is uncomfortable with the godliness of this administration.
My Prescription is this; PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY, FOR OUR GOVERNMENT, FOR OUR LEADERS AND PRAY FOR THE WISDOM TO FOLLOW WHAT GOD HAS DECLARED FOR THIS COUNTRY!
In my meditating the Word of God, I came upon 2 Chronicles 7:14 and this is how it came to me in my spirit.
2 Chronicles 7:14-16
If My people of the United States, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their country.
My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this country.
For I have chosen and sanctified this Country, the United States of America and set it apart for my holy use, so that My Name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart will watch over them perpetually.
So there it is my brothers and sisters, God has placed His Heart in our nation, and now it's time to place His Heart in us, His Spirit in us so that we can overwhelm the evil that is trying to abolish the principles of godliness that this Nation was founded on.
God Bless you all and remember, "JESUS IS LORD!!"
15 For then you will be seen as innocent, faultless, and pure children of God, even though you live in the midst of a brutal and perverse culture. For you will appear among them as shining lights in the universe,
It is now true to say that the world we live in today is a place where both men and women have turned from God and have so conformed to the ways of the world, that the telling of lies, the perverseness of our nature, and the depravity of our actions have become the norm in the way many human beings think and live out their lives. In my spirit I can see God's displeasure flaring up as acts of human mistrust, wrongdoing and lying accumulate, while people try to do their best to put a shroud over the truth. But the reality of God is simple enough, what He has created should be an inspiring tribute to Who He is. So no one should have an excuse for not believing in Him. What has happened though is this, that some people who believed in God, came to a point in their lives where they stopped treating Him like God. They refused to worship Him, their communication with Him in prayer also came to a extreme halt. They ignored Him in pretending that they knew it all and that there was no need to consult someone they couldn't hear much less see. They began to deny that such an omnipotent entity ever existed. Some others traded the glory of God Who holds the whole world in His hands for the lusts and cares of this world.
In the early 60's prayer in school came under attack and was declared unconstitutional. The cutting of these communication lines with our Creator proved to be a mistake that we are still paying for to this day. But to this I say, "Be strong in the Lord and in the Power of His might." Let us execute a dependency on the Power and Wisdom of God so that we will be able to hold and stand our ground as we combat the current evil that has not only invaded our homes and schools, but also our government. There is a battle coming and to win this battle we must be fiercely determined to never give up or give in to compromising the Word of God. We will see that in our spiritual growths ascendancy we will be able to resist and stand as never before. The light that shines from us is a light that can never be extinguished.
John 1:5 (AMPC)
5 And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].
There is a darkness that moves within our own government, a darkness that tends to cloud the truth. A darkness that keeps Gods integrity from taking its proper place in governing our country. We as Christians should be aware that without this perpetuation of the godly integrity exhibited in the Bible. The godly foundations that this nation was built on will cease to exist. We must not allow our failure to vote for godly men and women to be our undoing. There are many in our government that have placed themselves in a position where they now oppose the very God whose very principles founded this very nation. They have found themselves fighting against God. We must not allow ourselves to fall into the same abyss by not doing anything. I believe that our current administration is doing what God would have them do. Let us stand behind them during these mid-term elections and persevere by never giving up the integrity that is making the United States the great nation that God has declared to be.
I leave with this next Scripture.
And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
JESUS IS LORD!!
Prayer of Salvation and Baptism of Holy Spirit
If you do not know Jesus as your Savior and Lord, simply pray the following prayer in faith, and Jesus will be your Lord!
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. Your Word says, "Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Acts 2:21). I am calling on You. I pray and ask Jesus to come into my heart and be Lord over my life according to Romans 10:9-10: "If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." I do that now. I confess that Jesus is Lord, and I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead.
Baptism of Holy Spirit
1 Corinthians 12:13 (NLT)
13 Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19 (NLT)
19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself,
Ephesians 4:4-6 (NLT)
4 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future.
5 There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all.
The Prayer of Salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit brings believers into the body of Christ. So pray the prayer and join all those who believe in God, all those who come in obedience, obeying His commands, and seeking Him in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I am now reborn! I am a Christian—a child of Almighty God! I am saved! You also said in Your Word, "If ye then being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: HOW MUCH MORE shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?" (Luke 11:13). I’m also asking You to fill me with the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, rise up within me as I praise God. I fully expect to speak with other tongues as You give me the utterance (Acts 2:4). In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Matthew 16:16 NLT
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
What is a Ministry? Is it Rules and Bylaws? Denominational affiliation?
Jesus didn't build a building and endow a fund or start a denomination.
He invited people to know Him. Peter saw this in his ministry, that is why He confessed that Jesus was
"The Messiah, The Son of The Living God."
It is a confession-the confident belief in Jesus as Lord-that is the foundation for the Ministries Jesus seeks to build.
Christian maturity means many things, but it starts and continues with a God-inspired declaration of Christ as Savior.
Make sure you and your Ministry stay Christ centered as you live and articulate your beliefs.
