NO GREATER LOVE

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is her mercy toward them that fear him.

But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children. To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them. Psalm 103:11, 17-18

One of the most difficult challenges for the God’s Servants to overcome is an individual’s preconceived perspective of the Character and Attributes of God! TRUTHBTOLD, God’s Ways are so far beyond human capacity to comprehend that they can only be known thru Divine Revelation! Thus, Scripture attests “He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts, unto the children of Israel.” Psalm 103:7

Often one’s personal intimate relationship with The Sovereign Creator and Lord of Heaven and Earth is hindered by our past personal experiences, coincided with what we picked up from worldly associates! Nevertheless, God’s greatest desire for His Most Precious Creation, humanity, has always been, “That WE may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;” Ref. Philippians 3:10

Like so many, before I came to Christ, I could only see God as this INVISIBLE Holy Entity, seated somewhere in The Heavens, spying on me, watching every wrong thing I did and waiting intently for me to reach that mystical numerical act of unholy offenses, before pulling out His Righteous Judgement Sledge Hammer and squashing my po wretched mind, body and soul back into the dust of the Earth. I was convinced that God had a predetermined Spiritual Case System of “HAVES” AND ‘HAVE NOTS” and I already knew which side I fell on. #Don’tjudgemeyall! Thankfully, God was not intimidated by my ignorance and engrafted me into His Royal Family, anyhow!

My heart still flutters when I think about the awesome transformation from sinner to saint! Who could’ve imagined that God receives no satisfaction from punishing lost humanity for their sin, but is driven by His Incomparable Compassionate Desire for people to forsake their sin and turn to Him, allowing Him to remove their sin as far as the east is from the west, releasing forgiveness, healing ,redemption and renewal, empowering us to experience unimaginable abundant life benefits to satisfy our mouths with His Mercy and Goodness in this present world and the world to come! #WOW #DIDJAHEARDAT?

TRUST2KNO, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IS GREATER THAN THE LOVE OF GOD!

YESSSSS, UNQUESTIONABLY…NO GREATER LOVE!

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…

HE REIGNS 4EVER MORE!

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’s throne is in heaven, his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men. The LORD trieth the righteous; but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth. Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest this shall be the portion of their cup. For the righteous LORD LOVETH RIGHTEOUSNESS; HIS COUNTENANCE DOTH BEHOLD THE UPRIGHT. Psalm 11:4-7

HEAR YE, HEAR YE! Amidst the undeniable climatic chaotic events and seasons of extreme uncertainty, The Voice of The Sovereign Lord yet speaks from Eternity Past these words of comfort and consolation into the hearts of all who faithfully abide in The Refuge of His Holiness, having placed their trust in The Immutable Foundation of His Truth, Power and Love!

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10

While the wicked man persists in scheming and plotting evil, being foolishly fully persuaded that his covetous, proud, self-centered, haughty, dishonest and cruel deeds go unnoticed, he recklessly denies The Presence of The True and Living God, arrogantly dismissing accountability and mocks reckoning before The Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient, Eyes of The LORD of Heaven and Earth!

Nevertheless, the soul of the righteous shall remain secure, affixed and totally relying in The Rock of Ages Who has pledged HIMSELF to His own hurt “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT

Granted, we’re definitely living in “unusually turbulent times that have tried and vexed the souls of God’s Elect”, yet when we acknowledge WHO WE ARE AND WHOSE WE ARE, our spiritual condition is undaunted by circumstantial evidence! Beloved, THIS CONFIDENT HOPE assures us that GOD SEES AND KNOWS EVERYTHING THAT’S GOING ON AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING EVER TAKES GOD BY SURPRISE!

Precious Ones, TRUTHBTOLD, GOD is STILL ON HIS THRONE, THEREFORE NOTHING HAS CHANGED!

DON’T GET IT TWISTED! GOD HAS APPOINTED A DAY OF JUDGEMENT TO REWARD THE WICKED WHO LOVE VIOLENCE WITH THE RAIN OF A HORRIBLE TEMPEST AND SNARES OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE!

HOWEVVVRRR, TRUST2KNO, God’s ETERNAL WORD continues to encourage the 21st Century righteous, who have committed their entire being into The Faithful Compassionate Care of The Saving Grace and Mercy of King Jesus, that HE WHO IS FAITHFUL AND TRUE IS A VERY PRESENT and UNCEASING HELP for the godly man! FOR HIS FOUNDATION REMAINS SECURE AND HE SHALL REIGN 4EVER MORE!

BEWARE OF THE SPOILER

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

How is Sheshach taken! and how is the praise of the whole earth surprised! how is Babylon become an astonishment among the nations! …As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth…

We are confounded, because we have heard reproach; shame hath covered our faces; for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the LORD’s house.

Wherefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will do judgment upon her graven images; and through all her land the wounded shall groan. Though Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the LORD.

Because the LORD hath spoiled Babylon, and destroyed out of her the great voice, when her do roar like great waters, a noise of their voice is uttered.

Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon, and her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows is broken; for the LORD God of recompences shall surely requite.

And I will make drunk her princes, and her wise men, her captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men; and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, saith the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts…And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her, and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah. J

Jeremiah 51:41, 49,51-53, 55-57, 64

Beloved, in the midst of these unsettling times of unprecedented uncertainties, God is yet calling His people to rest assured! Although, The Holiness of God’s Glory allows punishment as judgement for the willful disregard of His Standard of Righteousness, nevertheless, when those He uses to exact justice become drunk on arrogance, falling prey to their selfishness, driven by lust and greed, excessively abusing the power delegated to them, fail to respect and making mockery of God’s Will, TRUST2KNO, the LORD of Host requites NOT ONLY VENGEANCE BUT RESTITUTION!

For It is written, “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.” Psalm 37:1-6

Take courage my Kingdom Brothers and Sistas and wait on The Lord! TRUTHBTOLD, Our God is Faithful! There will be GLORY after THIS!

Beware of The Spoiler, ye workers of iniquity!

A NATIONAL DISGRACE!

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. Proverbs 14:34 NASB

Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old and made him King in the room of his father Amaziah…And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah did. And he sought God in the days of Zachariah, who had understanding , in the visions of God; and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper. 2 Chronicles 26:1, 4-5

History bears witness to the testimony that Godliness instills boldness and a holy confidence in the integrity of Our Heavenly Father’s commitment to intervene on our behalf with the manifestation of His miraculous Power! The inhabitants of the land who are wholeheartedly devoted to a lifestyle of righteousness, honor God and enjoy blessings of Peace, Protection and Prosperity!

Howevrrr, the sinful lust of those who selfishly persist in their rebellion, blatantly disregarding the Kingdom Standards instituted by The Sovereign Creator and Lord of Life, inflicts fear, produces distrust, affects the worship, robbing the nation of it’s witness and inevitably ruptures or delays the GOD-ORDAINED Destiny of mankind; ultimately enslaving the nation to the global pandemic of disgrace and defeat!

NEVERTHELESS, God’s lingering Loyal Love for His Precious creatures, not willing that any should perish, abides Faithful! The Passionate Source of Life, waits patiently, luring whosoever will to open their hearts and minds, embrace His Mercy and Grace in Godly-Repentance by turning from their wicked evil ways and accepting The ONLY TRUE SALVATION available to us, in JESUS CHRIST Alone, guaranteeing that they SHALL receive the Gift of Eternal Life!

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

And Hannah prayed and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD; my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies because I rejoice in thy salvation. There is none holy as the LORD; for there is none beside thee, neither is there any rock like our God. 1 Samuel 2:1-2

In the midst of chaos, confusion and uncertainty it’s a struggle for us , even saved-sanctified-Holy Ghost filled baptized believers, to remember the true worth, value, not to mention unmerited privileges of a prayer life! Seriously! Who would’ve imagined that The Eternal God, Creator and Sustainer of ALL LIFE would allow such fickle, frail, flawed worm-like creatures access to His Majestic Throne, armed in the bold Blessed Assurance that as we pour out our heartfelt woes, casting off the burdens of life’s maladies that OUR POWERFUL GREAT HIGH PRIEST, was not only listening compassionately, but willing to perfect every one of our concerns! #ijs #WOW #DATZ AWEMAAZIN, huh?

That’s exactly why, when our hearts are overwhelmed with the daily grind and drama emanating from the ungodly antics of this world, it behooves us to take full advantage of any/every opportunity to escape to the backside of The Mountain for momentary respites to simply dwell in His Presence! Beloved, I encourage you to discover the secret treasures waiting those who intentionally turn your focus away from the depth of disappointed hopes, the sadness of sorrows, the pain of sufferings and even the sporadic satisfaction of answered blessings, just to look into HIS FACE, beholding the Joy and Glorious Wonder of Pure Holy, Faithful, Omniscient, All Powerful Sovereign Excellence of The Only True Reverser and Restorer of circumstances. Yep!! TRUST2KNO, that’ll turn your prayers into praiz! Jus ask Hannah! ABOUT FACE!

TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS!

MORNING GLORAAA

 

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

This is what the Lord says: “Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom, or the powerful boast in their power, or the rich boast in their riches. 24 But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the Lord who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the Lord, have spoken! Jeremiah 9:23-24

From Heaven’s perspective, religious performances don’t necessarily equate TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS and those who think they are of the true religion (circumcised) are no better than those who are not, and all will be punished equally!
Unfortunately some, operating under the Spirit of The Pharisee, arrogantly presume that their intellectual astuteness, physical attributes or social prominence entitles them to glory in special privileges and benefits above others of seemingly lower states therefore justifies and exempts them from adhering to the implicit Principles, Statues and Commands of The Sovereign Creator and Lord of all life. Nevertheless, GOD shuns such thinking as foolishness and useless vanity and will ultimately punish them for their self righteous transgressions!
God’s manservant, Jeremiah warns the Israelites that TRUE Wisdom and Righteousness comes from GOD! This means that a godly man will not boast in the shallowness of human wisdom, effort, might nor earthly riches, but relies totally upon his personal knowledge, understanding and relationship with The True and Living God!
We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. Romans 3:22 NLT
The evidence of a true disciple of Christ is demonstrated by his trusting solely upon God’s Authority, Righteousness, Justice, Strength and Unrelenting Loyal Love; and is found seeking Him constantly for provision, comfort, instruction, guidance and protection, empowering him to deny himself and walk upright before A Holy God!
O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps. O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. Jeremiah 10:23-24
This, my Precious Bros. and Sistas, is the visible proof of faithful discipleship and TRUE WISDOM AND RIGHTEOUSNESS!!
Beloved, Be Encouraged, Do Good and Remain Faithful and Diligent!
ETERNAL TRUTHS!

4 THOU ARE MY GLORY!

MORNING GLORAAA

 

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

My soul, wait thou only upon GOD; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In GOD is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in GOD. Trust in him at all times, ye people, pour out your heart before him; GOD IS A REFUGE FOR US. SELAH! PSALM 62:5-8

GOD has spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto GOD. PSALM 62:11 

When I remember Thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. Because Thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of Thy wings will I rejoice. Psalm 63:6-7

But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth. They shall fall by the sword; they shall be a portion for foxes. But the king shall rejoice in GOD; every one that sweareth by him shall glory; but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped. PSALM 63:6-7, 9-11

 

Beloved of GOD, there’s no denying that in times like these,  even those of us who have placed our trust in The Saving Grace of Jesus Christ are being battered and buffeted by the the winds of these unusual and unprecedented challenges of chaos, confusion, uncertainty and unsettling distress. TRUTHBTOLD, our souls are increasingly vexed by the dissention between what we’ve been believing for and what we’re presently  experiencing, often causing us to doubt the very fundamental pillars of our confession. 

HOWEVERRRRRR,  as we still the noise of bolstering pestilences, we hear The Voice of Jesus bubbling up from our belly, reminding us that as Born-Again, Blood-Washed, Holy-Ghost-Baptized Children of The Most High God, WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT!  OUR FAITH MUST REMAINED EMBEDDED AND  ANCHORED IN THE  ROCK SOLID TRIUMPHANT TESTIMONY OF OUR RISEN SAVIOR AND NOT IN INEVITABLE CONSEQUENTIAL CONDITIONS OF OUR TEMPORAL HABITATION IN THIS FALLEN WORLD! 

Remember how the Ol’ Skool Churrch Mothers would saanngg,  “My Faith is built on nothing less, BUT JESUS BLOOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but WHOLLY lean on Jesus Name. On CHRIST, the Solid Rock I stand, for all other ground is sinking sand!”

What about that other song, “Where do I go when there’s nobody else to turn to?
Who do I turn to when nobody wants to listen? Who do I lean on when there’s no foundation stable? I go to the Rock, I know He’s able, I go to the Rock!”

Well, guess what? Times may have changed, but THE ANSWER REMAINS THE SAME!
WHERE do we go  and WHO should we turn to?  The government, Google, CNN, MSNBC, FOX! GOD FORBID! I Don’t know about you, but last time I checked, The Bible said, ‘put no confidence in the frailty of fickle, flawed human flesh!

SOMEBODY SAY…’BEEN THERE, DONE DAT AND AIN’T GOING BACK!”  #ijs…When I need stability, shelter, strength, deliverance and protection, “I run to the ROCK THAT’S HIGHER THAN I!”  “I go to the Rock, I know He’s able, I go to the Rock!”  HIS NAME IS JESUS!

PRECIOUS ONES, when the cares of this world are closing in on us, we YET have a hiding place IN THE  IMMUTABLE WORD OF GOD!  Remember, ‘Errrr thang is going down, BUT THE WORD OF GOD!” When your trust remains hooked into The KING of King and The LORD of Lords, rest patiently assured, HE WILL deal with your enemies!  #checkdabook! TRUST2KNO, HE IS OUR GLORRAAAAA!

ABOVE REPROACH?

MORNING GLORAAA

 

ETERNAL TRUTHS!

 

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of GOD. the powers that be are ordained of GOD. Whosoever therefore resisteth the  power, resisteth the ordinance of GOD; and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. Romans 13:1-2 

OMG! Didjaheardat?

TRUTHBTOLD, ALL POWER BELONGS TO GOD!

Yet, God has Sovereignly delegated power according to His Good Pleasure. Therefore, those who reject GOD’s Divine Purpose (to restrain sin and evil and promote social justice in the nation) and persist in the willful abuse of their God-ordained power to memorialize their narcissistic personality disorders, shall be judged and eternally condemned according to their own unrighteous deeds!

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 2 Corinthians 5:10

Obviously, it’s  virtually impossible to legislate morality,  nonetheless, consequences and accountability are ultimately irrefutable! While many may attempt to live above the limitations defined by the statues of The Constitution and civil legislations, TRUST2KNO,  NO mortal is above GOD’S REPROACH!  BEWARE, THERE SHALL BE A DAY OF RECKONING FOR EVERY ONE!  #ijs!!!

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Mark 8:36-37

“Time is filled with swift transition, Naught of earth unmoved can stand, Build your hopes on things eternal, Hold to God’s unchanging hand.” (saanngn yall)
 
Remember that one? Probably not! It’s  the first verse to one of my favorite Gospel hymns (by Jennie Bain Wilson)! This song probes the core of every mortal’s soul provoking either aggravating or consoling intentional thought concerning its eternal destination!

While some would prefer to dismiss the  inevitable potency of its reality, there’s absolutely no escaping it. The most precious commodity in the earth is not silver, gold, oil or even real estate—BUT TIME!

While this New Millennium Theology teaches “time is money”but I beg to differ!
