John 3:30 “He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.”
Jesus was an equalizer he came to show man that nobody is better than anybody. In Luke 14:7-11 [please read], Jesus advised that when you go to a party, do not take the front seat because someone greater than you can come. Jesus is saying, people are on different levels. Read the rest of this entry
John 1:41-42 “Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means “Christ”). Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus…” (emphasis added).
Yesterday, I shared with you how after I got saved, I could not keep Jesus to myself. Andrew went looking for his brother, Simon, and told him, so did I. Guess what? Today, my brother is a Pastor and he is pastoring a great church. You never know what God is going to do with that your relative. Read the rest of this entry
1 Cor.15:42-43 “…Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever. Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength.” (emphasis added).
I can imagine the scene; Jesus was taken to the cross and the disciples were thinking, “He told us last night that He would be alive, and we will come alive.” Instead, they saw Jesus crucified on the cross. They must have felt deflated, this was nothing like the great things they had imagined. Read the rest of this entry
Luke 5:37-38 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the new wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins.”
Get excited because God is taking away ‘The Old’ in order to establish ‘The New’. God is on your side and God is all that you need. For someone today, God Himself is giving you a new name. The Lord God is giving you a new name. Read the rest of this entry
Jer.29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
We are in the season of New-Streams and the rivers of God are flowing already. I want to encourage you to stay focused on God alone, dive in and God will meet with you in Jesus Name. Read the rest of this entry
Luke 11:9-10 “…keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Jesus prevailed in Gethsemane before He could prevail in Golgotha. Do not stop calling, push through it. You need to go to Gethsemane [that is the place of praying] before you get to the place of actually physically doing the work of pushing in Golgotha [Calvary]. Read the rest of this entry
Eph.5:8 (NRSV) “For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light” (emphasis added).
How does God expect us to live? God instructs us to live as children of light. Though we were once darkness, in Jesus we are light. This scripture suggests that it is possible Read the rest of this entry
Isa.60:1 (NCV) “…get up and shine, because your light has come, and the glory of the Lord shines on you.”
To Arise means to get up, to come into notice, to originate from a source. To arise means to begin to exist. The story of some people is though they are alive, they are not existing. Read the rest of this entry
