True Help

John 11:21 & 40 “Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died. Jesus responded, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believe?”

Martha and Mary had this Jesus that they loved, but the question on their minds was, “Can He help us?” They knew Jesus wanted to help, but they were not sure if He could help. Their dilemma was they were not sure if Jesus could help. Read the rest of this entry

Let go & Let GOD

Isa. 43:18-19 (NIV & Voice) “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. Watch closely: I am preparing something new; it’s happening now, even as I speak, and you’re about to see it. I am preparing a way through the desert; Waters will flow where there had been none.”

 

We are grateful to God for the New-Streams that are bursting forth. Paul said to the Galatian Church in Gal.5:7 You were running the race so well. Who has held you back…?”. By God’s grace, we are determined that nothing will hold us back in Jesus Name. However, now that God has helped us identify the things that are capable of blocking the flow of our streams, we must be deliberate about taking them out. The beauty about our God, is that He did not only help us identify the problem, He also gave us the solution so that nothing blocks the flow of our New-Streams. Nothing will hold us back; we will continue to flow well in Jesus Name. Read the rest of this entry

By Blood

Lev.17:11 (NKJV) “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.”

 

When it comes to wrongs, the solution is the Blood of Jesus. The only antidote to your past wrongs and regrets is the Blood of the Lamb. The same way the brass serpent was lifted up [Numbers 21:9], anyone that looks unto Him shall be saved [John 3:14-15]. Jesus is the solution! If you keep carrying the regrets, you are not helping yourself. You need to let go of your wrongs. Sometimes, we need to forgive ourselves. We are willing to forgive other people, but we are tougher on ourselves. Read the rest of this entry

Even If

Luke 17:4 “Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.”

 

Forgiveness is not foolishness. Forgiveness is to choose to let it go. Forgiveness is not for the weak. In fact, if you are not strong, you cannot forgive. It is only the strong that can forgive. Read the rest of this entry

Common

1 Cor.10:13 (Voice) “Any temptation you face will be nothing new. But God is faithful, and He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can handle. But He always provides a way of escape so that you will be able to endure and keep moving forward.”

Do not specialize your problem because it is not special. The challenge is we try to specialize our problems by suggesting that we are being afflicted. God is saying to us today through Paul that we have no excuse, Read the rest of this entry

Benefit?

2 Cor.4:17-18 (Voice) “You see, the short-lived pains of this life are creating for us an eternal glory that does not compare to anything we know here. So we do not set our sights on the things we can see with our eyes… Instead, we focus on the things we cannot see, which live on and on.”

We were dead through our trespasses and our sins. We were dead; we were not bad people that were going to be made good people. We were dead and we were made alive. Read the rest of this entry

Love Unconditional

Eph.2:4-5 “But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) (emphasis added)

Imagine a reckless driver doing one hundred and twenty kilometres per hour on a road with a speed limit of fifty kilometres per hour. In his recklessness, he knocks down and kills a little boy. Read the rest of this entry

Grace= Mercy + Favour

Eph.2:4-5 (NRSV) “But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved” (emphasis added)

Eph.2:4 (NRSV, emphasis added) “But God, who is rich in mercy…”  What is mercy? Mercy is not getting what you deserve. Does anyone go to bed praying and pleading for God’s judgment in their lives? Read the rest of this entry

Forgive & Accept

Matt. 6:12 “and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. 13 And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one”

A peaceful life is an uncommon life, a prosperous life is an uncommon life and a protected life is an uncommon life. Today, our focus is on the keys to peace. The first is Forgive. Read the rest of this entry

Foretold & Fulfilled!

Rev.19:10 “Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said, “No, don’t worship me. I am a servant of God, just like you and your brothers and sisters who testify about their faith in Jesus. Worship only God. For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus.”

The next prophecy we would be considering is, the Soldiers would gamble for Messiah’s clothes. It was prophesied that the soldiers will gamble for Jesus clothes. Read the rest of this entry
