ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

The Lord GOD which gathers the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others yo him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yeah, all ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest. His watchmen are blind they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

Yea, they are greedy dogs, which can never have enough, and they are shephers that cannot understand, they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and tomorrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant! Isaiah 56:8-12

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returned not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring for and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater.

So shall my word be tat goeth forth out of my mouth, it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Isaiah 56:11-12

 

Thoughout the history of humanity, there have been those who deliberatey misinterpret the Plan of God, presuming a sense of special status in their relationship with The Lord. Doing this makes it easier for them to disqualify others based on a variety of differences! BUT JESUS came to broaden the scope of His Elect to include the downcast, rejected, foreigners and those castrated by the restrictions of the pompous self-engrandized arrangance of those intoxicated on the wealth of this world! Jesus’ sacrificial atoning death and resurrection stands as an everlasting sign of GOD’S POWER, LOVE AND MERCY, bringing freedom, joy and peace to those who have borne the grief and sorrows of afflictions of decades of captivity and dejection.

While some leaders have drifted away from a real understanding of God’s Will for humanity, choosing to remain mute persuing the path of furthering their own private interest and agendas, resisting any effort to help the weak and confused they plan great things for themselves while focusing on sleeping and drinking. TRUTHBTOLD, the consequences of God’s Sovereign Justice is an invasion of beasts and terror of foreign nations!

TRUST2KNO, GOD IS NOT MOCKED! WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE RECEIVE. IN OTHER WORDS, DON’T GET IT TWISTED; YOU HARVEST WHAT YOU SOW!

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid, for YAH, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation. Therefore with joy you will draw water From the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:2-3

Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. Isa. 49:16

 

In light of  prevailing  gross darkness, devastation and desolation surrounding  our world today, it’s not uncommon that every now and then, even the most seasoned of God’s saints are driven to conclude, ‘Why even bother to hope, after all what’s the point”?  #Don’tshoutmedown, nah! Nonetheless! Instead of giving in to to despair, I was incited to review the words of God’s Prophet, Isaiah, speaking to the remnant of God’s Chosen nation.

While 21st Centry millennials are quick to refute the antiquated teachings of times long past as irrelevant, TRUTHBTOLD, the more things change, the more they stay the same! In other words, “THERE’S REALLY NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN!”

Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. 1 Corinthians 10:11

God’s people were facing eminent danger of massive destruction, yet we hear Isaiah offering a word of warning and a ray of hope that we’d do well to glean from today. 

The Prophet encourages them that no matter what’s happening around you, don’t be afraid, but keep trusting and praising our God!  Isaiah, knowing God inhabits the praises of His people, speaks to souls wearied by the consequences of unwise choices and those who are forced to endure circumstances which are beyond their ability to control, reminding them that their only hope of deliverance was to remain steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of their Lord! (Ref. 1 Corinthians 15:58)

REMEMBER! God is Holy, Righteous and Just! While He must punish the unjust, His Anger does not last forever! Unlike many of our earthly fathers, YAH is our Covenant-keeping God and remains a Faithful Father, Saving Strength, Shield, Provider and Redeemer to all who call upon Him! From His own Mouth, Abba Father promises to wipe away the tears from their faces and keep you in perfect peace because we trust in Him! (Ref. Isaiah 25:8, 26:3-4)

#DIDJAHEARDAT?

Beloved, when life is out of your control, rest assured, THERE’S NOT ONE MOMENT WHEN GOD IS NOT! JESUS IS ALWAYS IN ABSOLUTE CONTROL!

The Eternal Word IS FOREVER SETTLED IN HEAVEN! Jesus Himself testifies that you are the apple of His eye and He has tatooed your name in the palm of His Hands forever. (Ref. Psalm 17:8; Isa. 49:16)

In the midst of these unsettling times,  there’s no denying the myriad of  available distractions designed to cause even the most seasoned of saints to question whether or not The Sovereign Creator and Sustainer of All Life is REALLY concerned about what’s going on down here amongst the gross darkness of  this lost, unfaithful and rebellious world! Nevertheless, I adjure you to keep your eyes on Jesus, The Joy of your Salvation and your feet steadfast on THE WORD! Be confident of this very thing, HE THAT HAS BEGUN A GOOD WORK IN YOU IS FAITHFUL TO COMPLETE IT UNTIL THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST! (Ref. Philippians 1:6)

Precious ones, when you can’t see no way, why not confuse hell and praiz JESUS ANYHOW! Don’tchaknow? At the mere mentioning of THE NAME OF JESUS demons tremble and the angelic host is put on alert!

Ooooh Yeah!  TRUST2KNO, The Great and Holy One of Israel is closer than ever before! Hence, don’t ever forget that YOUR GOD REMEMBERS!

SELAH!

A YET PRAIZ!

MORNING GLORAAA

ETERNAL TRUTHS!!

 

Can we talk, 4REAL? Sometimes there’s a great disconnect between who we are and where we are! Don’t shout me down, nah! Seriously, life has a way of placing us in circumstances where we, as born-again-baptized-loving-The Lord and endeavoring 2 live our lives 2 please Him-with all of our hearts, minds, spirit and soul—never expected to be! Well, welcome to REAL-TIME!

Can I tell you something else? You are in good company! Jus look at God’s Prophet Habakkuk. Having been called to preach a message of impending devastation to the backslidden nation of Israel, anticipated that the people would heed God’s warning and repent allowing The Sovereign Lord to intervene on their behalf driving their enemies far away from them. However, God does not always show up as we anticipate leaving us distraught and confused! Do I have a witness?

As we continue to walk with God we discover that it’s during these times of contradiction that God teaches us how to trust HIM! In other words, there will be times when you don’t have all the answers or all the information! Yet, this does not negate the truth that we’re IN THE WILL OF GOD! God stragetically ordains these experiences so that we learn to live and walk in another dimension called ‘FAITH’ and not by our senses! During these time of frustration and uncertainty is where we are trained how not to walk by our feelings or even according to ‘circumstantial evidence’! BUT, GOD is SAYING, “JUST TRUST ME! COME WHAT MAY, I PROMISE, I’LL NEVER ABANDON YOU!” (Ref. Hebrews 13:5)

The Scriptures confirm that those of us who have confessed our belief in The Saving Grace of Calvary’s Cross are not exempt from tests, trials, trauma or tragedy. Nevertheless, we do have an advantage that the world knows not of. We have this confident assurance that our God is Holy, All Knowing, All Powerful and Eternally Faithful to His Word! TRUTHBTOLD, Our Heavenly Father, has committed Himself to be with us always and is powerful enough to sustain us through whatever we go thru; therefore we can trust that at His appointed time, HE SHALL DELIVER US OUT OF IT ALL!

Just as Habakkuk came to realize, our hope must not rest in what we don’t have, think, see or feel, but our Hope must rely upon The Love of The Omnipresence, Omnscient, Omnipotent Creator of Heaven and Earth!

Therefore, no matter what it looks like, we join in the Lord’s servant’s hymn of faith, singing, “Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls—YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD; I WILL JOY IN THE GOD OF MY SALVATION. The LORD is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will maqke me walk on my high hills!” (Habakukkhk 3:17-19)

Beloved, when we don’t  understand God’s ways, we can yet rejoice knowing that we who have claimed The Name of Jesus, shall walk sure -footed, finding strength through trusting in The Lord our God!

The JUST, SHALL LIVE BY HIS FAITH! (Ref. Habakukkhk 2:4)

WHAT DOES GOD EXPECT?

MORNING GLORAAA

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

For this commandment which I command you today is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off…

But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.”

See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, 16 in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess. 17 But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, 18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess.

19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.” Deuteronomy 30:11, 14-20

Beloved, Be It Further Resolved that TODAY, The Eternal God has summoned Heaven and Earth to witness His Appeal to you to choose a LIFE of blessed belief, hope-filled trust and obedient loyalty to THE WORDS THAT ARE COMING OUT OF HIS MOUTH, that you and your decendants might live and enjoy ETERNAL LIFE!

HOWEVRRRR, AT THE END OF THE DAY…IT’S STILL UR CHOICE, right?

We appreciate every opportunity and privilege extended to us that we might entreat The Presence of our Great High Priest, pouring out our hearts desires, petitions and supplications with Thanksgiving. Humbled by such graciousness, we bow before Him, embracing Him in earnest expectation, confident that He Who Rules Forever by His Power is able to save and deliver us from any of life’s maladies, we grab hold to The Horns of The Altar now to worship Him…

 

I NEED THEE O, I NEED THEE! EVERY HOUR OF THE DAY, I NEED THEE! OOOH BLESS ME NOW, MY SAVIOR! I COME 2 THEE! WAY MAKER, MIRALCLE WORKER! PROMISE KEEPER; LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS! THAT IS WHO U R! WAY MAKER, MIRACLE WORKER! PROMISE KEEPER! LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS! THAT IS WHO U R! O HOW I LOVE JESUS! OOOOHHH HOW I LOVE JESUS! OOOOHHH HOW I LOVE JESUS! BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED MMMEEEEEE….LET’S PRAY…

 

Father in Heaven, here we are before you once again. We come today with outstretched arms, open hands and grateful hearts, thanking You for blessing us with one more day! Great Is Thy Faithfulness, O Lord, unto me! For this is the day that You have made, therefore we’re rejoicing in The Splendor of Your Magnificent Glory! We know that it’s only by Your Grace and Mercy, that we’re yet here to enjoy life, health and strength! We bless Your Holy Name for the continuous outpouring of Your Unconditional Lovingkindness towards us! As we present ourselves as living sacrifices, holy and acceptable unto you we’re trusting You to provide everything that we need today to sustain us thru whatever challenges that unfold during the course of this day! Abba Father, we know that You Alone are our God, Guard and Guide!

Abba Father, it’s with Exhuberant Gratitude that we bless You for allowing us to enter into Your Throne Room, with hope-filled expectation that You will entreat us graciously as we pour out the burdens that seem to overwhelm our hearts, releasing and committing everything that concerns us to You because You’ve proven Yourself to be Faithful and True.

Bowing before You, we acknowledge Your Omnipresence, Omnipotence and Omniscience! You see and You already know everything about everyone of us, yet You invite us to come fully expecting to find Grace and Mercy, comfort and strength that encourages us to hold on to every Word that You have spoken over our lives, even before we were born!

Daddy, yielding humbly before Your Sovereignty, we ask Your forgiveness for everything that we have spoken, done and even thought that was not pleasing in Your sight and violated Your Kingdom Constitution! We now thank You because You have assured us that if we would confess our sins, You, being Faithful and Just, will forgive us, and wash us in The Precious Blood of Jesus, cleanse us from all unrighteousness, and restore the breach that our disobedience has caused between our poor souls and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Now, we ask Holy Spirit, that You will intercede on behalf of our family, our friends, even our enemies, knowing that Your love is the same for each and everyone of us!

We lift up all who have never trusted and accepted Your Son Jesus as Savior and Lord! We believe Holy Spirit is quickening that stony heart now imparting a Spirit of Godly-Repentance that’s provoking them to come, humbled by Your Lovingkindness, and they are now receiving Your Mercy and Grace to Save. We believe that You are leading, guiding and planting them into the fertile grown of a local church where they shall be accepted with Love and embrace with Joy by Your Family, taught and transformed by Your Word of Life to take their position in The Kingdom of Heaven. 

We pray for every backslider, who having been deceived by Satan, has turned their back on Your Salvation and Deliverance and gone back into the bondage of this dark, evil and sin-lusting world. Father, we know that because You so loved the world, You sent Jesus to die for sinners and saints! Because You are The Good Shepherd and full of Loyal Love, You are wating with open Arms and Heart to receive them back into The Fold if they will ask You to forgive them, recommit and dedicate the rest of their lives wholly unto faithfully serving You!

Abba, we know that You have instructed us, to look not at the temporary things, but to the eternal, yet because of the frailness of our flesh, we’re easily tempted to become overwhelmed by the cares of this world causing our hearts to become burdened with the pressures of this life! While we struggle to stay focused on Your Presence and Promises, sometimes our spirits become wearied with fear, doubt, unbelief, plagued with restlessness, despondency and hopelessness, sickness and disease, financial debt, marriage problems, wayward rebellious children, broken relationships, unprovoked threats, depression, addictions and insecurities that we lose sight of Your Covenant Promises of Provision and Protection! Father, help us to stand still and keep us in the center of Your Will, as only You can!

Lord Jesus, we lift up  those whose bodies are afflicted by all manner of sickness and diseases. We ask that You touch our brothers and sisters, especially those who are enduring fatal and dibilitating illness caused by the Spirit of cancer, strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, liver disease. We intercede on behalf of all those undergoing surgical procedures, those in recovery rooms, radiation and chemotheraphy, dialysis treatment, all those on life-support systems, not knowing that they’re even in this world! We’re declaring and decreeing that as we’re praying You’re walking through every ward, touching, healing, delivering, miraculously rebuking fatigue, mistakes, mishaps, adverse reactions to medication, misdiagnosis and premature death for Your Name Sake.

As Your Eyes roam to and fro throughout the earth, we pray that You save and deliver speedily by Your Mighty Hand all those who are crying out and seeking Your Face at the very moment! Give us to know that because we belong to You, we are never too far that You can’t see us, reach us, and shield us from every weapon that our enemy would rail against us. Impart, wisdom and understanding that we make grasp The Truth that Your Name, Jesus is a Strong Tower to those that You have declared righteous can run into to be saved. Open up our minds and our hearts, fill us with confident assurance that You are LORD of, over, in and through ALL! You have sworn by GOD-SELF that You will never ever leave nor forsake us, even to the end of this Age!!

Grace us with hope-filled Peace that no trouble, test or tragedy can come near us except You allow it to prove our faith and Your Faithfulness to turn everything around to work in our favor, bringing about life transforming testimonies and praises of Your Eternal Magnificence, Honor, Glory and Power! Even when we don’t know what to do, we’re trusting You to preserve us in every trial, keep us fully-confident that  before we experienced it, You have Pre-Ordained an expiration date and promised to bring them out wholly restored, renewed, refreshed and with the reward as You have promised them in Your Word!

Father, thank You for listening to the hearts of all those who are distraught by grief and fear, remember the elderly, the widows, the downcast who have borne the heat of the day, those who pushed and prayed us through! Father, give them sweet peace that our God is not unrighteous to forget or overlook the labor and love they’ve shown towards Your Name and how they have and continue to minister to the saints! Father we decree that every demonic-induced spirit of fear and confusion is defeated NOW because of Your Anointing and that the Spirit of Love, Power and Sound-mindness and Purpose is being released in the lives of Your people now, in Jesus Name!

Precious Lord, remember the children, our grands and great-grand children! By faith we plead THE BLOOD OF JESUS is over their lives wherever they go! We abort and overrule every curse, cancel every diabolical scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon their lives! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we remember how generous You were and continue to be in dispensing Grace and Mercy towards us! Realizing that You have a Plan and Purpose for their lives too, we resist fear and worry, but through faith and patience, we walk in the Blessed Assurance that their steps and stops are being Divinely orchestrated by Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

Abba, we lift up every Bishop, Pastor, Overseer, Apostle, Evangelist, Preacher and Teacher, Deacon, Board Member, Usher, Muscian, Choir, Praiz Team member, Nurses, Parking Attendant and Security personnel! Undergird them with Your Anointing to carry out their assignment, under the direction of Holy Spirit. Encourage and strengthen their hearts, souls and spirits as they endeavor to serve, reach, teach, preach, guide, guard and comfort those whom You’ve charged them to minister to. Lord You know how discouraging it can be when oftentimes folk seem to turn a deaf ear to Your Word! Cover them as they go in and out amongst Your people and any who would seek to discredit, hinder and even destroy their faith, faithfulness and the ministry You have ordained.

 

Heavenly Father, as You have instructed us, we pray for the leaders of our nation, government, corporate, judicial, education, financial, health institutions, military and community service workers!  Father remember the teachers, counselors, administrations, superintendents and especially the children and those who are going off or returning to colleges! We’re asking that You touch their minds and hearts, help them to make wise decisions, speak to them in dreams and visions letting them know that You Who Sit Enthroned Above the Heavens are keeping record of the deeds of every man’s heart and will reward accordingly! We believe that because their hearts are in Your Hands, they are being continuously opened to hear and obey Your Will! Lord Jesus, we’re standing on Your Word as decreed that The government of this world shall rest upon Your shoulders and that You are The Eternal King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

 

Holy Father, we pray for total deliverance from every cord that would bind Your people and come against our Divine Destiny! We rebuke the enemies of our minds and Thankya that nothing can stop the blessings or us from performing the greater works You have assigned to the covenant saints! Strengthen and renew the Covenant of Faith! We thankya for the courage and patience to stand, steadfast, consistent, always abounding in the work of our LORD!

Lord, there are so many other things, that we have yet to mention, but we’re trusting, believing You to fix it, Jesus, as only You can! Lord, we know that You are not just able, but willing to do anything that we ask, in accordance to Your Word, in Jesus Name! As we walk through this day, depending soley on You for an Abundant Life, Divine Health and Your  Unspeakable Joy to strengthen us for whatever lies ahead, we shall give You all the Praise!

As we offer us this prayer, Father we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Sweet HOLY SPIRIT, we seal this prayer with A Holy Hallaleujahhh! For WE believe that it is done! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X

Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY JESUS IS REAL, HE LOVES THEM , HE STILL SAVES AND HE’S COMING BACK SOON!

SELAH!

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life, Weeping may endure for a night, BUT joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5

O, love the LORD, all you His saints! For the LORD preserves the faithful. And fully repays the proud person. Be of good courage. And He shall strengten your heart, All you who hope in the LORD. PSALM 31:23-24

If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who He is!  2 Timothy 2:13

TRUTHBTOLD, PAIN AND SUFFERING IS A PART OF THI# LIFE! However, those of us who have placed our personal faith in The loyalty of our Heavenly Father’s Love and commitment to preserve us thru times of hardship always have a reason to hope and trust that precariousness of these temporary times of adversity fail in comparison to the CERTAINTY of The God of Heaven’s deliverance!

Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I Am GOD, and there is no other! I have sworn by MYSELF; the Word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, And shall not return… Isaiah 45:22-23

Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law; 13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.14 For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it. 

16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? 17 Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. 18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O Lord, held me up. 19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. 20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. 22 But the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. 23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.

Psalm 94:12-23

The enemy seeks to obliterate God’s people. The evildoers target the most vulnerable groups in society, whom the LORD will defend. God will discipline those He loves, correcting and instructing them to bring them back into relationship with Him. God recognizes humanity/s inherent weaknesses. Corrupt rulers enact legislation that persecutes the righteous an enables wickedness, which is CLEARLY contrary to God’s Will! (Excerpts from Ps. 94:5-23 Study Bible, KJV)

“If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times; I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!” Psalm 91:14-16 The Message
