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 online 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, you will give yourself an advantage by giving the Word of God authority to penetrate deep within your hearts, enabling the life and healing that they contain to enter and refresh your very being, Amen!
You will come to see that this will manifest as we obey the leading of Holy Spirit to those Scriptures that He alone will give us as the directive for the times. The Scriptures we receive are powerful Prescriptions that will move you into an arena of excellence which will provide you with a manifestation of God's Promises (Guarantees) and Blessings in your life.
Rise Up Our United States
I have lived through several United States Presidents prior to our current President Trump. And in my lifetime, I have never seen nor heard of a President being so scrutinized over every word he speaks. A President so humiliated by the public by not only disgracing, slandering, and insulting him. But also in threating not only his life but also the lives of our First Lady and his children with death.
I am truly ashamed of the people of MY country. I am ashamed of the ruthless, hating, cruel, Trump haters who display themselves as in having no pride, morals, ethics nor values of Our Country's traditions. Our Elders taught us 30, 40+ yrs ago to respect our President, whether we voted for them or not, and now we have all these news agencies filled with reporters who feel they have the right to carry on with deceitful lies saying the things they say only for their good and not for the good of the country. Every other President before he was elected, never suffered the indignities that President Trump has had to endure. They were not on the news 24/7, being scrutinized for their every word. They were ALWAYS BEING PRESSURED even when they were taking care of the important work to make this country work for us the people. 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 wanted President Donald Trump to succeed and make our America great again! But I know that there are many out there that want this Country to fail, and the evil that is absorbing their thinking was uncomfortable with the godliness of his administration.
My Prescription now 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.
The United States of America was sanctioned by God as a country accepting His Word the Bible as its spiritual governing mandates. And we the people of God do the same. This is God's Country!!
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, His Spirit and His Love 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!!"
Are You Preparing Yourselves!!
My desire is that we the body of Christ, as we patiently await on Jesus to return, do not and will not lose our purpose during this period of marked time. Spiritual loitering will do nothing but detain us in bringing about the days of refreshing that will flow from the Lord and which will then consummate when the day of universal restoration comes. I’m speaking about the restoration which in ancient times God announced through the holy prophets. I’m talking about the universal restoration that will take us back to a time that was witnessed before the fall.
We as believers know that in the end Jesus will appear again, but let’s not allow the knowledge of that to deter us from accomplishing what God has ordained for us to do. Let us not procrastinate in obeying the demands of the great commission. For if we do, it will surly become our own undoing.
I would like to just share something that came about in my moments of meditating Gods Word. There is much in the book of Acts to meditate on as we peer into the beginnings of the church. Come and investigate the wonders of the Scriptures with me as we approach The Acts of the Apostles Chapter 3. I’ve also heard other teachers call it The Acts of the Holy Spirit.
Let’s begin by considering our voyage into the supernatural as we seek the realities of the church beginnings.
The following comes from the Voice Translation Bible:
Although this young and thriving church has no political influence, property, fame, or wealth, it is powerful. Its power is centered in living the gospel. The people value one another more than any possessions. They come together as a large, passionate, healthy family where it is natural to pray and share all of life together. The kingdom of God is blossoming on earth as these lovers of God embrace the teachings of Jesus. In the days ahead, the church will lose much of this initial beauty and appeal; it will become consumed with a desire for material possessions, cultural influence, and power.
People, isn’t that astounding! Its POWER is centered in LIVING the GOSPEL. Praise God! Let us continue with verse 1.
Acts 3:1-19 The Voice
One day at three o’clock in the afternoon, a customary time for daily prayer, Peter and John walked to the temple.
2 Some people were carrying in a man who had been paralyzed since birth. Every day they brought him to a place near the beautiful gate (one of the temple entrances) so he could beg for money from people entering to worship.
3 He saw Peter and John coming and asked them for a contribution.
4 Peter gazed intensely at him—so did John.
Peter: Look at us.
5 The man looked up at them, assuming they were about to give him some money.
Peter: 6 I want to give you something, but I don’t have any silver or gold. Here’s what I can offer you: stand up and walk in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, the Anointed One.
What Peter shows us here is this, there are things that come from the Kingdom of Heaven that are more valuable than silver and gold.
7 Then Peter took the man’s right hand and lifted him to his feet. Instantly the man’s feet and ankles grew strong.
8 He jumped and walked, accompanying Peter and John into the temple where he walked, jumped for joy, and shouted praises to God.
9-11 A crowd ran to the commotion, and they gathered around this man in an open area called Solomon’s Porch. There he was, standing on his own two feet, holding on to Peter and John. They knew exactly who he was—the beggar they passed at the beautiful gate every day. Everyone was absolutely amazed at this wonderful miracle; they were speechless, stunned.
Just as Jesus promised, the Spirit comes on believers in power, enabling them to do miracles like this. Now they can participate in the truth of the good news.
Now listen closely to what follows! This is one point that I do not want any of us to miss, it gives root to the ignorance of the unbelievers way of thinking. The unbelievers being who I would call the anti-christs in the crowd. Peter really lays down the truth about the spiritual darkness and ignorance that these people were living in.
Peter (to the crowd): 12 Why are you so amazed, my fellow Israelites? Why are you staring at my friend and me as though we did this miracle through our own power or made this fellow walk by our own holiness?
13 We didn’t do this—God did! The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob—the God of our ancestors has glorified Jesus, God’s servant—the same Jesus whom you betrayed and rejected in front of Pilate, even though Pilate was going to release Him.
14 He is the Holy and Righteous One, but you rejected Him and asked for a murderer to be released to you instead.
15 You not only rejected Him, but you killed Him—the very Author of life! But God raised Jesus from the dead, whom my friend John and I have seen with our own eyes.
16 So that’s how this miracle happened: we have faith in the name of Jesus, and He is the power that made this man strong—this man who is known to all of you. It is faith in Jesus that has given this man his complete health here today, in front of all of you.
I can just see Peter as he explains why and how this eventful miracle came about. I believe he spoke, not in anger but with compassion. I am reminded about Jesus praying to His Father, "forgive them Father, for they know not what they do" and I believe that as Peter spoke to them, his memory of what Jesus prayed entered his mind. It lead him in behaving in the manner that he did.
17 Listen, friends, I know you didn’t fully realize what you were doing when you rejected and betrayed Jesus. I know that you, and your rulers as well, were acting in ignorance.
18 God was at work in all this, fulfilling what He had predicted through all the prophets—that the Anointed One would suffer.
19 So now you need to rethink everything and turn to God so your sins will be forgiven and a new day can dawn, days of refreshing times flowing from the Lord.
I believe that the key to the final restoration is established in the great commission. It is all about bringing everyone to a position in their lives where they change their way of thinking, turn their face towards God, and allow themselves to be touched and stirred up by the Kingdom of God. We believe that the body of Christ on earth should reflect the Kingdom of God in heaven.
In saying all this, there’s a lesson to be learned from this next Scripture.
2 Chronicles 7:14-16 The Voice
14 and My people (who are known by My name) humbly pray, follow My commandments, and abandon any actions or thoughts that might lead to further sinning, then I shall hear their prayers from My house in heaven, I shall forgive their sins, and I shall save their land from the disasters. 15 Now I will witness with My eyes and hear with My ears the prayers offered in this temple 16 because I have chosen and consecrated this temple as the eternal resting place for My reputation, My eyes, and My heart.
The key to understanding any verse of Scripture is context. There is the immediate context—the verses before and after it, as well as the larger context of Scripture—how the verse fits into the overall story. There is also the historical and cultural context—how the verse was understood by its original audience in light of their history and culture. Because context is so important, a verse whose meaning and application seem straightforward when quoted independently may mean something significantly different when it is taken in context.
As believers in a new covenant with God, we are guaranteed personal salvation in Christ, and we are also guaranteed that God will use us to accomplish His purposes, whatever they may be. It is then our duty as believers to live holy lives, seek God, pray, and share the gospel knowing that all who believe will be saved.
In 2 Chronicles 7:14 God states that He will heal our land, I believe that He isn't merely talking about healing our physical homeland or country.
I believe what He has been trying to do is stir up and turn over the inactive and the undeveloped ground in our hearts to awaken us, to revive us, and to stimulate our lives so He can pour into us that which we will desperately need from Him in the days to come.
It isn't enough to simply go to church, attend a few prayer meetings and then go back home to our computer games and TV shows. Like the five wise virgins in Matthew 25 who were fully prepared and ready for the Bridegroom when He came unexpectedly, we need to prepare our homes and our hearts, we must repent for wasted time and prayerlessness, moving in a direction where we will actively stay in His Word, always seeking Him first by keeping ourselves focused on Jesus the Author and finisher of our faith. For our Redeemer draws yet closer and closer!!!
We must not allow the malignant maliciousness to move us from our resolve. For there is treachery in the land.
2 Timothy 3:4 (AMPC)
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.
Here is an excerpt from a teaching that came from Rick Renner of Moscow’s Good News Church. It goes on to reveal more insight into this powerful Scripture.
“People will be preoccupied with and known for their violence, but all of this will pass. Just as a storm appears on the horizon and brings destruction with it, these violent winds in society will not last long. As threatening as it may look, it will pass just as surely as storms always pass….”
In light of what the Holy Spirit has warned us about in this verse and our need to find shelter in Jesus and His Word, I want to remind you what the Bible tells us about Lot. Lot was a righteous man who was tortured in his soul because of his habitual seeing and hearing wrong things.
Second Peter 2:8 says, “For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds.”
The word “vexed” in this verse is a translation of the Greek word basinadzo, which means to torture. You see, when Lot first moved to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, the evil sights he saw in those cities were a torture to his soul. But because he dwelt among them and saw their sinful deeds from day to day, after a period of time his soul was no longer tortured. In “seeing and hearing” their unlawful deeds “from day to day,” his righteous soul became desensitized, and he acclimated to that evil environment. He completely lost his spiritual sensitivity because of the images that became so commonplace to him.
What a lesson the story of Lot teaches us! Especially in these last days when violence abounds, we must set a guard and stay vigilant regarding what we see and hear. The scenes and sounds we allow to enter our eyes and ears have the ability to either save us or desensitize our souls.
I encourage you to lovingly set down rules not only for your children, but also for yourself in order to guard your family’s eyes and ears against messages of violence. If your hearts become hardened or desensitized by wrong images and messages, it will eventually have an impact on every part of your life. That’s why Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” The New Living Translation says, “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.”
There is nothing more important than the condition of your heart and soul — so take every measure you possibly can to avoid the spiritual desensitization moving across the globe like an epidemic in these last days. Above all, make sure that you fellowship with Jesus every day in the Word and in prayer. Nothing will help you more to stay sensitive and responsive to His heart in the midst of this violence-loving generation!

ALLOWING YOUR RECREATED SPIRIT
TO DO WHAT IT WAS CREATED TO DO!
The first part of this impartation was in giving me the knowledge of who we are as human beings, and what it is that shows us what we are made of, in other words what is our make-up. This explanation started in the form of Scripture.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
The Passion Bible translates it in this manner.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Passion
17 Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new creation. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.
Now let me ask you this question, is there any part of this Scripture that you do not understand. Just in case there is, allow me to give you further insight.
This Scripture places its attention on the recreated spirit of man. As a born again believer your spirit should now be the most dominant character of your innermost person. I will explain.
Your makeup as a human being, a born again believer consists of three elements and I want to emphasize these elements to you. They are Humanity's three basic elements: you are a spirit being, you have a soul and you live in a body.
How do we know this? By going to the truth, directly to God's Scriptures.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 Passion
23 Now, may the God of peace and harmony set you apart, making you completely holy. And may your entire being—spirit, soul, and body—be kept completely flawless in the appearing of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One.
Of these three the human spirit is the real person in you. It is the very core of a persons being, the essential centerpiece of your existence.
The human spirit, the inward man who is able to move in God's Spirit realm is the regenerated, recreated spirit who now moves with the divine eternal life as a new source and new element of you the born-again Believer.
Your recreated spirit has become a candle of the Lord. And it should now have nothing to do with the maliciousness of this corrupt world. And instead it should have everything to do with enriching your soul and body with all the goodness and righteousness that your spirit will receive from Gods Holy Spirit.
Ok lets proceed!
Proverbs 20:27 KJV
 The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.
One of the firsts duties that your recreated spirit must take on is to begin in filling itself with the word of God.
This comes by immersing yourself into meditating the Word of God with all diligence. Here is where Spiritual Growth begins.
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Lets look at the Passion Translation.
Always be eager to present yourself before God as a perfect and mature minister, without shame, as one who correctly explains the Word of Truth.
It’s a must that you fall into this category of a mature minister, or you’ll be of no good to anybody or to yourself.
I’ve heard some say that studying the Bible is hard. If this is true for you, please allow me to give you a bit of advice.
Don’t become frustrated, study and keep on studying, you must consider this to be serious matter and keep on considering it something serious to present yourself before God knowing His Word diligently.
Because not only will you be ministering the the people around you but I believe most importantly you’ll begin by ministering to yourself.
You will become your very first student.
It is important to know that your recreated spirit will then meet up with its first students within you; those being your soul and body.
Now watch this.
17Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new person. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.
This would include our old identity, our life of sin, our old relationship with the world, and our old mind-sets.
It is as if you have been released from bondage and left the prison walls that kept you in captivity behind you.
Now these walls behind you, just as they where there to keep you, now these same walls will not allow you to return.
but you must to come to grips that we are not just reformed or simply refurbished, we are made completely new by our union with Christ and the indwelling of Holy Spirit.
We are now able to move in Gods spirit realm. Making the power that satan had over us obsolete.You must not look at yourself in the same way. You now have a recreated spirit.
But listen, your spirit was all that was recreated, did you notice in looking at yourself after you were born-again that nothing else changed. Your soul and body remained the same.
If you had red hair at the rebirth you still have red hair, if you were bald, you are still bald. Are you catching my drift. Did you also notice that you were still being bombarded by worldly thoughts and you were receiving them.
Don’t fret that's what your recreated spirit is for, to help you renew you soul and body.
It is your recreated spirit made anew that must now take on the job of imparting a fresh life to your soul and body.
2 For the “law” of the Spirit of life flowing through the anointing of Jesus has liberated us from the “law” of sin and death.
4 So now every righteous requirement of the law can be fulfilled through the Anointed One living his life in us. And we are free to live, not according to our flesh, but by the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit!
5 Those who are motivated by the flesh only pursue what benefits themselves. But those who live by the impulses of the Holy Spirit are motivated to pursue spiritual realities.
6 For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace.
Your recreated spirit is the avenue that connects with Holy Spirit.
9 But when the Spirit of Christ empowers your life, you are not dominated by the flesh but by the Spirit. And if you are not joined to the Spirit of the Anointed One, you are not of Him.
There must be a connection between your recreated spirit and the Spirit of God who moves in the Spirit Realm. This is the beginning of your where your spirit begins to dominate your soul and body. And you can take that to the bank.
13 For when you live controlled by the flesh, you are about to die. But if the life of the Spirit puts to death the corrupt ways of the flesh, we then taste his abundant life.
We are to be call foolish if we allow this opportunity to disable the flesh and give control to the spirit.
24 Keep in mind that we who belong to Jesus, the Anointed One, have already experienced crucifixion. For everything connected with our self - life was put to death on the cross and crucified with Messiah.
25 We must live in the Holy Spirit and follow after him.
Why???? Because your soul: your intellect, your will and emotions were not recreated in the new birth, neither was your flesh.
And here is were your recreated spirit is suppose to take over. The training of your soul and body now lay in the hands of your recreated spirit.
How does this happen, where does it begin?
Begin by allowing yourselves to scrutinize this word OBEDIENCE and to what is contained within its nature.
In our case as sons and daughters of God, it’s nature is filled with being in conformity with Gods mandates, dutiful to His will for our life.
First of all it places us in sphere of ecclesiastical authority for we as a group of people are under such authority.
THIS AUTHORITY ALLOWS YOUR RECREATED SPIRIT TO DO WHAT IT WAS CREATED TO DO.
Are you getting this.
You must come to realize that in the new birth the only part of you that was made anew was your perpetual, never-ending
And now it’s time for your reassigned spirit to get your soul and flesh to work together as a cohesive unit.
All for one and one for all.
If you do so, guess what happens?
Let me tell you what happens and how I got it going.
As I began working on getting my spirit, soul and body to work as one. I was reminded of what Jesus said,
Matthew 18:20 NLT
 For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.
You will not be alone in this endeavor.
This endeavor being first;
RECREATING YOUR SOUL (which consists of your MIND, WILL AND EMOTIONS)
AND 2ND TO RECREATE YOUR BODY (which consists of your flesh).
To be able to accomplish this you must get to know your make up.
In other words you must get to know who you really are.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 NLT
 Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.
Here we see that the Word of God gives an idea of what is contained within our make up.
We come to see that human beings are being defined as having three distinct individual identities.
Each having their own distinctiveness. They are described as the following:
Spirit, Soul and Body!
And if the Bible divides them into three parts it stands to reason they are not the same thing.
Each part has its own attributes.
To understand who you really are you must look to each part and scrutinize their faculties.
Spirit: As born again Christian our spirit contacts the spirit realm, in other words it moves in the supernatural realm of God governed by His Holy Spirit.
And by the way, one benefit of moving in this realm is experiencing the peace of God.
If you look at Genesis 1:1-2 you’ll come to see that we are dealing with a spirit that’s been around for awhile.
For Holy Spirit has been here since the very beginnings.
Genesis 1:1-2 NLT
 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
This allows us to believe that the supernatural realm were our spirits should be moving in has been around since the very start.
Soul: Contacts the intellectual and emotional realm.
Body: Contacts the physical realm
2 Corinthians 5:17 Passion
“17 Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new person. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new.”
When you were born again, your spirit was the only part of you that was made new and fresh. How can I say this, well, let me ask you this.
When you were born again did you change the way you thought, or did your physical being become fresh and new? NO!
Only did your spirit make the change. Let me explain
Romans 12:1-3 TLB
 And so, dear brothers, I plead with you to give your bodies to God. Let them be a living sacrifice, holy-the kind he can accept. When you think of what he has done for you, is this too much to ask?
 Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how his ways will really satisfy you.
 As God's messenger I give each of you God's warning: Be honest in your estimate of yourselves, measuring your value by how much faith God has given you.
I started in allowing my spirit to train my soul and body by making these scriptures my confession.
And I believe I have done my best to fulfill my promise. You must!
Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 NLT
 When you make a promise to God, don’t delay in following through, for God takes no pleasure in fools. Keep all the promises you make to him.
 It is better to say nothing than to make a promise and not keep it. …
Psalm 50:14 NLT
 Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High.
What is it that you need to do to become successful as an ambassador of Jesus Christ?
First of all let’s define that, we must realize that you are on a journey! And in this journey you must display a spiritual confidence that knows no barriers.
Yes there will be failures and the majority of them will manifest in small insignificant ones.
You must learn not to beat yourself up over these little failures.
I want not to focus on these small measly frustrations.
2 Corinthians 2:11 Voice
It’s my duty to make sure that Satan does not win even a small victory over us, for we don’t want to be naïve and then fall prey to his schemes.
Instead I want you to begin to focus on all your victories. On all the things that you have done well.
Yes you have seen failures but think about how much you have learned and we’re you are now compared to where you where.
Yes there is so much more to learn and it’s all waiting, waiting for you to move and retrieve it.
Give instruction to a wise man and he will become even wiser; Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning.
This will not be instantaneous, you did not get to where you are overnight. And you’re not going to get where you want go overnight.
As I said before, you’re on a journey it’s a process.
At this moment focus on your goals, and if you do not have any, get some and stay in tune with you goals.
Even if your advancing comes in small increments. They will all add up within a years time.
You’re going to look back and be amazed at all the things that you’ve learned.
You’ll be amazed at how much you have accomplished.
So do not, I said do not focus on your failures, focusing on your failures is a pathway to failure.
Build on your victories, here’s where your success and Gods blessings are, or as I like to call them, His guarantees lay.
In the meanwhile Meditate on this teaching for awhile, allow your spirit to give you a new insight into the revelation that awaits you. Make sure that you read this over and over, allow it to saturate your inner man so that it is stays within you eternally.
We will be back with more.
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.
