God Created Us to Be His People to Others

What a great God we have. In His majesty and glory, we were made to serve Him and Him alone for the elevation of others, as Christ did. As followers of the way, we have the duty to be God’s ambassadors for the truth and be instruments of hope for those who truly need it especially the poor.

Remember what the psalmist has written, “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done.” Psalm 19:17. We have the duty to assist the disenfranchised!

A smile, a warm hug, a conversation, a meal, hat or anything you can do to help those in need, including money, are examples of what we all can do to be Godly to God’s people. There is nothing esoteric about the criteria to help others, brethren.

All we have to do is to take action! indulgence is short lived and discouraged by the Lord.

“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:15.

We are to follow the steps of Jesus Christ.

“Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” John 12:26.

This Sunday, be kind to someone. Take the working or not working poor for a meal. Give them a hug or share words of encouragement in Christ Jesus. Be what the Lord made you to be — ambassadors of truth and instruments of hope to the millions of brothers and sisters in Christ who need help.

I pray that you go and do likewise as we learn from Luke 10:37. God bless you all.

What is the simplest way to discover your Godly spiritual gift?

It’s simple. First, After a person receives the Holy Spirit Aka, accepting Jesus as your personal God and savior, which is a condition for receiving any spiritual gift from God, the person is obsessed with exercising their spiritual gift year round, all the time.

By the way, the gifts of the spirit are many: Teaching, pastoring, mercy, exhortation, discernment, prophesy, tongues, healing… as Pastor Mike taught us in a spiritual gifts class at Calvary Chapel of Lexington: “Spiritual gifts are different from natural talents, fruits of the spirit or callings. Martyrdom, for example, isn’t a gift from God but a calling.

Spiritual gifts are operations (I Corinthians 12:1-6), also known as grace gifts (I Peter 4:9-10), services (I Corinthians 12:5), and manifestations (I Corinthians 12:7). We are often equipped with multiple spiritual gifts to do God’s work not ours, sometimes referred as the Holy Spirit gift mix.

Let’s clarify something. A person may have the gift of evangelism but the calling to be an evangelist (Ephesians 4:11-12). Much exhortation some Christians might have (Romans 12:8), as well as the spiritual gift of music (Psalm 150), or the gift of wisdom (I Corinthians 12:8).

Based on these biblical definitions, what is your gift, brethren? Or gifts, if I may ask. I encourage you to reflect on this article, pray every day, every hour, and be a soldier of God by using your godly gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Blessings to you all.

Instructions to the rich, straight from the bible

In the writings of Timothy, in the new testament, we learn that God provided specific instructions for the wealthy to follow in holy scripture. They are amazingly descriptive and easy to follow and understand, in fact. The verse that addresses how the rich should behave in this world goes like this, “Instruct those who are rich in the present age not to be arrogant or to set their hope on the uncertainty of wealth, but on God who richly provides us with all things to enjoy. Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and willing to share.” Timothy 6:17

Just for a moment, think of a wealth man or women who you personally know or you know of. Is he arrogant? Money hungry? Not a servant of the Lord? Who exploits the poor or disregards the needs of the homeless? Or it is the opposite. I don’t know what your position is in regards to the former question, obviously. When I think of most rich people I know, I see arrogance, greed, disregard for the poor and an unwillingness to share what God has given them with others. It’s a pandemic, must say. They actions are obvious and visible for many to see.

Quite frankly, some ultra rich people I know even treated me poorly when I was around them in fundraising events. I am not poor! What am I trying to say? The Lord’s message in regards the rich is clear cut. We are to share the gospel with everyone we encounter including them. Instead of enabling prosperity gospel preachers to deceive millions by distorting scripture, we the brethren should use the power of God’s great commission to guid multi-millionaires to Timothy 6:17. The true rich needs the Lord as much as we do.

isn’t that the truth?

I’m convinced that the word of God was inspired by the holy spirit through Godly men and women. Ruth, Esther, Matthew, Timothy… God’s word lives! It did yesterday and it certainly does today. Let’s honor God’s holy scriptures found in Timothy and help the ultra wealthy to understand which biblical commands they should follow ladies and gents. It’s our duty.

Next time you meet a wealthy man or woman, have a conversation about the Lord if the climate is inviting. Get into the habit of knowing the word to share it with many kinds of people including the upper class. Never forget the following: Sharing the God’s word is a true gift that glorifies our father in heaven. We are called to be His ambassadors on earth…

In God, we are to trust. Now and forever more.

Give Up Your Old Self And Carry His Cross

The Lord, in the book of Colossians, clearly teaches us that we must obey His commands and focus our efforts on the afterlife by giving up worldly pleasures and sins. We are to examine our lives and be transformed by the blood of the lamb.

In Colossians 3:6 we learn, “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.”

Now I ask you. Can a “follower of the way” live life in impurity and yet see the kingdom of God? Committing sexually immoral acts without repentance? Adultery or a lifestyle of worldly sexual encounters, for example? Not according to scripture. And it doesn’t stop there. Greed, lies, and evils desires are also an abomination to God. Listen carefully to this: We must be radically different from the vast majority of humans beings living in this world.

We are to be living witnesses of Jesus Christ to the many peoples of the world. In order to do that, we must give up the ways of our former serves and welcome the ways of the one true God. Casting iron pan used by chef get better with time. We Christians must be better by emulating the ways of Christ Jesus through time.

Brothers and sisters, “For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:13-14. Be with the Lord, love His ways and don’t be slow to put in practice God’s commands.

Glory be to God.

By faith and faith alone we must adore God

Not all biblical psalms were written by David but many were. I’m glad they were, in fact. His devotion and faith is clearly shown in the Bible especially after written Psalm 140, 141, and 143. It doesn’t take a forensic Bible phenomenologist to find evidence for this former claim!

“I seek refuge in you.”

“Reveal to me the way I should go.”

“Teach me to do your will.”

“Deliver me from trouble.”

“Don’t let me die.”

“I trust in you.”

“I exact you my God and king.”

“I am your servant.”

“Protect me Lord.”

“I call to you… hurry, help me! Listen to my voice.”

How many friends and family members do you have today who live their lives by such great faith? In total submission to the Lord, I mean? I don’t know anybody including me, I admit.

David wrote, “Don’t hide your face from me or I will be like those going down to the pit.” (Psalm 143:7). Sure, many of us conceptually believe in the former piece of scripture but in my many years of being a Christian and now a minister of Jesus Christ, I can count in my hands those of us who really surrender ourselves to the king in the way David did.

David does show his humanity in the book of Psalm by wishing bad for those who oppress him with statements like these also in the book of Psalm.

“Let hot coal fall on them.”

“Let them be thrown into fire.”

“I hate them with extreme hate.”

Thankfully, we followers of the way understand that hate is an antithesis to the works of the Lord and therefore, we don’t wish such fates even for our worse enemies. That’s the benefit to knowing the lamb!

Whether is Solomon, David, you or me, we must adore the Lord and walk in His path for the advancement of His kingdom and the gospel with David’s faith. It is by faith and faith alone that we must adore God like David did.

Be a man or woman of strong faith and in everything, love the Lord with everything you have. Flee from injustice and seek to do good. Hate of any sort Doesn’t come from God and lack of faith in God will only bring you destruction in this life. Dare to be different and be faithful.

What an honor it is to be with God. Blessings to you!

Learn to keep you mouth shut

One of the most important God’s commands that a Christian must learn is the call to be submissive to God’s scripture. God calls us to be quiet in the Hebrew Bible in a multitude of places including in the old book of proverbs. “Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense, but a man of understanding remains silent.” Proverbs 11:12.

In fact, there are tons of instructions in the Bible calling for us to be quiet and refrain from talking which means that the Lord wants us to keep our mouths shut much more often than the alternative. Be cautious every time you open your mouth to talk. Only speak the necessary.

“When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.” Proverbs 10:19. “Be angry, and do not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent.“ Psalm 4:4. “And to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you.” 1 Thessalonians 4:11

Ladies and gents, being silent is perhaps the most important lesson that I’ve learned my my adult life. When you choose to be quiet, you have time to better analyze your environment, discern whether or not others like or dislike you, and among other benefits, being quiet allows the Lord to give you the blessings that you deserve in His own time if you choose to allow Him to work through you for the expansion of His kingdom.

Human beings are evil. They often hate others for what they don’t or can’t have. Much envy you will experience in your lifetime if you make the choice to talk too much! Learn to keep your mouth shut. “For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.” Matthew 7:21-23.

Be a man or women of character who values the teachings and guidance given by Jesus Christ. It is only through Him that things are possible. Please keep your mouth shut.

One’s life legacy is secondary to God’s Will

Most people try the impossible to be someone in this life at the expense of ignoring that the only likely possibility for them to be someone is by losing their own life for the pursuits of God and His kingdom.

What a waste of effort I say, ladies and gentleman. As we learn from scripture, “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world yet forfeit his soul?” Matthew 8:36.

Just don’t. Do the impossible to advance the kingdom of God in Christ Jesus and “Love one another because we know that loving one another deeply covers over a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8.

The pursuits of man’s wealth are often guided by the sinful laws of man which many times can be quite demonic in nature and essence. Being someone in a man’s eyes was the approach that Jerry Epstein took. He died in his pursuits to please man and himself in sin.

Never forget what we learn from scripture, “The wages of sin is death but the gift of the Lord is eternal in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23.

Say no to man’s values and perishable ambitions and yes to the fatherly guidance given by our God in antiquity. God’s Will precedes any legacy set by perishable human beings.

Choose the Lord’s ways instead.

Our God is wonderful

My God, who am I without you? Without any legs I would be without your council. My eyes would go blind without you amazing love! My soul would have been born dead without you divine touch. You are all my reasons. You are all of our reasons.

The older I get, the more I see humanity’s desperation for acquiring wealthy in this perishable world even by hating their brothers and sisters for self gain. in the Bible we read, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22: 35-40). We also Lean to “not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.” 1 John 2-15.

Yet, the brethren and unbeliever alike keep doing evil against their neighbors and making this world their full pleasure self-centered playground. Only you and your commands are to be our priorities. The million dollar wealth accumulation by age 40 or the deceitful acts of wolves disguised as sheep are two of the most demonic practices and beliefs of those who don’t follow the way to heaven.

In my 48 years of age, I haven’t seen many people give up material possessions, like their good furniture, for the advancement of the gospel. Adult life has taught me how evil people can be in all the facets of our lives ranging from the people we work with to the family members that God gave us.

It’s sin here. It’s sin there… it’s sin everywhere. And as we know from scripture, “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:13). Humanity, as always, is seeking its own destruction for the never ending sake of acquiring earthly possessions or the wasteful practice of luxury.

You are our wealth. You are our strength. You are our everything and you alone is what we need. You take care of the Lily’s of the field… you love us more than them! How can humanity be so blind sided, egoistic and self-serving when your promise for us is so clear? Years come and go buy and one thing keeps constant. The evil and unfaithfulness of men and women.

Stop loving a life for others and dedicate your life to the Lord. Put your wishes second to His. He clearly tells us, “Don’t love this world.” So don’t! Follow His commands and in everything you do, give glory to the most high. You were made to glorify God not to be glorified! All is His, never forget that.

Our God is wonderful. Let’s keep that way.

We Need To Admit Our Own Mistakes

Ladies and gentleman, let’s not forget what is written in scripture, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” We are going to make mistakes and sin but in Jesus, we are going to sin less overtime if we repent. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

God is going to know if we sin or not regardless. We might as well do good and repent from our sins. Adam and Eve tried to trick and blame God for their pitfalls without repentance and it didn’t work well for them, right?

In Genesis 3:12 we are informed about Adam’s response to erring against God’s commands as it is written, “The man said, “The woman you put here with me–she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it. He blamed the woman, not himself and didn’t repent. We pay a price because of him – Death. “The wages of sin is death “ Romans 6:23.

Eve made the same error by blaming the serpent when God asked her “what I’ve you done?” and replied not blaming herself either, “The serpent deceived me and I eat the fruit” Genesis 3:13. Both Adam and Eve sinned and didn’t repent from their sins and paid a high price that we all inherited.

Moral of the story: Blaming others for our errors isn’t the best way to make anyone to be a follower of the way. I wonder what God would have done to Adam and Eve if they would have regretted their decision to eat the forbidden fruit and asked for forgiveness. They didn’t, unfortunately.

Strive to sin less. If you sin, repent and observe which consequences you pay for sinning against God. When you pay attention to them, I bet that you will start to sin less. God “speak” with us this way. That fear that you feel when the lights are off when you are living a sinful life goes away when you start living a Godly life.

God is clear with His message, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7. Consider living a less sinful life and follow the example of Christ. It starts with admitting our sins, everyone.

Makes sense? Tell me. I wanna hear from you. God’s blessings to you and have a great night. I’m waiting for your response.

God’s Love For Us Cannot Be Matched

The Lord loves you in ways that you can’t even comprehend. God’s love is too great for you and me to really understand. We sin, he forgives… we lie and repent, he forgets. God’s love for us is infinite… In the letter to the Ephesians, we learn about God’s infinite love for us all in chapter 3 verses 18 and 19.

“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God” (Ephesians 3:18-19).

Oh God, how great you are! You love us so much yet we sin against you. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23. The psalmist informed us about our sinful nature in antiquity, “My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to your word! Put false ways far from me and graciously teach me your law!” Psalms 119:28-29.

I still sin but I sin less. With you I do my best but I’m not sinless. You are perfect, I’m faulty I so can see. In my imperfections, I lie here in the beaches of the Atlantic thinking deeply, “who am I without God?” Nothing, I scream!

I’m not alone in sin. We all have sinned, in truth. We all can, however, receive the free gift of God by grace. I am so glad. So much true love so little immediate judgement. Who can be better than our God?

“Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come. But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. And the free gift is not like the result of that one man’s sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification.” Romans 5: 12-21.

Ladies and gentleman, listen carefully and remember: The Lord loves you. What can be better in this unloving world than to know that the creator of the university is on our side, Christians.

Take a big breath, close your eyes, exhale and never forget that in this life, you won’t ever walk alone if you dedicate your life to the one true God and repent from your sins.

Oh God, you are our only hope for salvation. I’m glad and thankful for it.

Whoever wants to be great must become a servant

To serve is to be great. Jesus Christ, our savior fully man and God served much while on earth. Let’s never forget the teachings of service found in Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many,” or what is written in 1 Peter 4:10, “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”

Which gift(s) have you received from God? Are you using these gifts to serve others in your daily life in the name of the living God? Remember: “The greatest among you will be your servant.”   Matthew 23:11. We were born to serve and love others — To assist and give. As we give for God, much is received! “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38.

Just remember that your portion isn’t always money or anything of monetary value. Give hope and much hope will be given to you in Christ Jesus. Give peace and much peace will be given to you in the name of the Lord. Be aware of the prosperity gospel, however, who explore Luke 6:38 as a way to gather your money for their own material vanities in this world. if you are in a position of lending, lend because God instructs us to do in love, “But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil.” Luke 6:35.

“And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” Mark 9:35. We are called to serve for our own sake. Fortunate are those who understand the former early in life because much good can be done when we have the Lord’s concepts in our hearts at an early age. We are able to influence some youngsters to do the same as us leading more youth to accept the gospel early on. What a blessing it is to be with God and serve Him. Service is good and can make you great. Don’t cease to do good and serve!

“This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.”  Titus 3:8. Let’s serve our neighbors in humbleness and love always fleeing from flesh behaviors, ” “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.  For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”   Galatians 5:13-14

Glory is to be given to God. That His work be a shared with all nations and through the brethren. Let’s choose to serve above all things. It is our duty. It is our call. It is our destiny. To love others as we love ourselves.

Drugs and Alcohol Won’t Solve Your Life’s Problems

Listen carefully to this: Illicit drugs and alcohol won’t solve your life problems. They are, however, likely to create chemical dependencies in your body that can consume the last piece of Christianity you have in you overtime, though. The best way to solve life problems is by turning to God, praying and sometimes fasting over a request to the Lord.

The following content comes from the website, http://www.openbible.info. Here we go:

The holy Bible contains 44 Bible verses on the topic of life problems and how to deal with them through scripture. I will include some of them in here in this piece so that you can both read them and as importantly, use the verses you like to help you deal with whatever difficulty you might be experiencing.

We are to trust in God and read our bibles constantly, especially if we experience difficulties in our lives.

Proverbs 3:6 : In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Proverbs 3:5: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:6: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

John 1:11: He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.

1 John 1:9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

2 Peter 1:21: For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Luke 1:35: And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.

2 Chronicles 7:14-18: If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that my name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will be there for all time. And as for you, if you will walk before me as David your father walked, doing according to all that I have commanded you and keeping my statutes and my rules, then I will establish your royal throne, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘You shall not lack a man to rule Israel.’

Turn your eyes and attention to the Lord in times of trouble. He is our salvation, our everything. Say no to Drugs and alcohol. It ain’t good for you.

Faithful Christians and Gossipers Don’t Get Along

The word of the Lord is clear, “Do not go about spreading slander among your people. “ ‘Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:16.

Yet, so much gossiping is spread in this world. Gossiping betrays confident and among many other things, it separates friends. “A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.” Proverbs 11:13.

“A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid anyone who talks too much.” Proverbs 20:19. I admit, I’m not a friend with anyone who gossips because the act of gossiping is condemned by the Lord. As a faithful a Christian, I choose God ahead of man 10 out of 10 times and landless and gents, you should do the same thing.

Remember the wisdom of the Salmist! “Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.” Psalm 34:13. Thou said the Lord. “All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me.” Psalm 41:7. Listen carefully to the following piece Bible scripture.

“knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossipers, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:28-32.

I once worked for an establishment where the former piece of scripture summarizes some of its it’s overall corporate culture pretty well, in my view. I refuse to engage in discourses with anyone who is arrogant, boastful, envious full of malice gossiper individuals. Quite frankly, I don’t have time for them other than conveying the word of God to them occasionally.

It my duty. It’s the great commission!

“Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20.

“Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.” Proverbs 10:18. Stay away from them and those who only talk about themselves. “A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.” Proverbs 18:2.

Is there hope for a gossiper? Only by repenting and turning to God! Otherwise not really. Stay away from them is they resist the gospel. “Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, for he will despise the good sense of your words.” Proverbs 23:9.

Say no to gossiping. It doesn’t come from God.

Much Discernment Christians Need These Days

The world maybe getting better as far as medicine goes but to me at least, medicine is perhaps getting more advanced because of how decaying our overall health has become. No wonder why the price of health care goes up every year! There are people sick everywhere.

A number of our own perceptions may not be accurate or even true, sadly. That’s why much discernment Christians need to have these days in order to be afloat and prepared for the many curveballs they experience in life. We live in an evil world full of unexpected traps where the majority of people, Christians or not, pretend to be something that they aren’t for social acceptance. It’s true. Go figure

There are so many pretentious people out there ready to hide their own vices at your and mine expense, so they plan. I see the former and say no, unequivocally and firmly because God has taught me to be so.

In scripture we learn that our yes be yes and that our no be no in Matthew 5:37. Easier said than done for most, I recognize yet important and necessary in practice. Be weary of anyone who is trying to change your core values for their self gain or hide behind a curtain of shame for self defense. Your word must mean what you intend it to mean.

Brethren, pray for discernment and ask God to give you much understanding! “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God.” 1 Corinthians 2:12.

Trust is possible but discernment must exist and spirits must be tested, always with caution and care. Failing to do so will have unexpected consequences in your life, I’ve experienced.

We learn in Micah 5:6, “Do not trust a neighbor; put no confidence in a friend.” My first marriage ended because my wife committed adultery with our neighbor. It is low, I know, but it happened. Some of my biggest confrontations occurred with those I considered to be my friends. What a rough reality yet factual.

Understand: The lessons of the Lord aren’t to be taken lightly! I thank God for every piece of scripture and for having a great God everyday in my life. We all should, in my opinion, say and sing praises to the only true God. He opens our eyes and ears to much sinful behaviors in life.

Listen carefully: How much envy, pride, hate and jealousy do us humans have? God shows me and He protects us all. What a blessing, I say.

The Lord was serious when he said the former in Exodus 20:1-26,” And God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me.”

Oh generation of sinners, hypocrites, and evil doers! Some who hide themselves behind a curtain of shame for self gain at the expense of the innocent are only digging their own grave! Shame be on you fake believer who claim to be of light yet has a heart in Sheol where the dead lives.

Be aware of the evil that exist in the world and
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.always, in every circumstance, test the spirits.” 1 John 4:1. It’s wise and necessary.

Practice discernment! Ask the Lord for more! He is a grateful God who provides to us much wisdom and discernment. Ask and it shall be given to you… seal and you shall find! These were the words of Jesus in the sermon on the mount. Believe in faith! And never forget…

Be aware about the nature of the enemy, “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.” 2 Corinthians 11-15.

What is not from God is from the devil. “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” Matthew 10:16. Be aware, “See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8.

Pray for discernment. Understand people and in all things, test the spirits. That’s what the Lord tells us to do in the Bible. Why should we do any different? God is all powerful and wise. Listen to Him and live. Ignore His teachings and be prepared to die. Christians, wake up.

Blessed are the Meek, the Innocent at Heart for They Shall See God

On the sermon of the mount, perhaps Jesus most well known sermon in then Christian Bible, He teaches us the following godly lessons written in the book of Matthew.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad,because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5-7.

Being meek, or the act of being quiet and gentle, is shared by God to be the formula to inherit the earth, interpreted as a means to those who sustain earthly power will inherit the kingdom of God. The pure innocent of heart, they shall see the living God.

Clearly, being meek and having innocence in our hearts are two qualities that God is looking for us to have here on earth in order to obtain eternal salvation. I believe that, not just because of what Christ has taught us in the sermon on the mount but due to Christian logic.

Can you imagine anyone being in heaven with a defiant attitude towards the authority of God or with a heart of malice? I can’t. Let’s not forget that the former were some of the reasons why Lucifer was expelled from the heavens, along with pride.

The message is clear cut to me — we must leave this earth with much meekness on us and with an innocent heart. The challenges are for real because this world is full of arrogant insubordinate people with much evil in their hearts. The workforce, as an institution in itself, has proven to me to not be any different than the quarrels that we witness in so called off day life.

Be quiet, gentle, follow the rules and with much innocence, love your neighbor as yourself. This is how the Lord wants us to live.

God is Faithful and He does Miracles

When God reveals us messages of good hope, He doesn’t do the job a quarter or half way but the best full way. Our God does miracles through grace for us all who repent and believe His commands so that we have a chance to obtain the much hope and dreamed seal of salvation for eternity life in Christ Jesus.

God is faithful and He will provide for those who believe in Him. In some instances, He does miracles in His time according to His Will and His faithfulness and promises, even if all odds are not in favor of the subject nationally and internationally. God’s strategy and delivery is unmatched and perfect and miraculous in our lives in many ways. He supplies for our needs at the right time because He is faithful.

“My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” God is our all-powerful, all-compassionate, all-wise and all-loving heavenly Father. … He loves us so much that He sacrificed His son Jesus Christ for our salvation.” Philippians 4:19. If we obey, God provides and blesses us in this life and the next, according to His will.

After 23 years of living in this country, against all the odds, my faithful creed in the son of man has led my family to live near the beach, the loving environment that I was born in Brazil. it is a miracle to me as I was pretty solid in the position of academic chair in a small town in Alabama, with high odds of getting promoted to a Dean’s position.

What appeared to be a logical choose ended up becoming a temporary frustration but with the Lord, even the crooked paths become straight. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6. Being at Claflin is a true blessing. My God has provided to me and my family again.

If God promises, He delivers. So much blessings, so many abundances He provides. He says, we do… God delivers! “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8.

It pays off to follow the commands of the most high and to wait for His perfect time for Him to deliver His blessings to you. I’m a testament for His grace in my life and the lives of a few who experienced big blessings from God around me.

In the past seven years, after working in three states — Mississippi, Tennessee and Alabama, my professional life has taken a spin that I haven’t planned or asked for. The Lord is my witness that I worked long hours to grow academic units (which they have), helped struggling students to graduate from school (which they have with my assistance), and retooled heavily (which now I have many professional certifications from the many hours of study I did past PhD), in order to do God’s Will to His like and standards.

Yet, stress, academic wars, betrayals, lies and more difficulties came my way many times without a good logical explanation, especially between the years of 2015 and 2021. I have clearly passed through the death valley of dry bones but the hand of the Lord was with me all this time. He made His breath enter my soul and now I came breathing life again, with the intention to have our family settle always adoring the Lord in the highest even stronger.

You are the our only God! The only one and the one who cares for us… I know that you exist and that you care for the brethren and not in every single millisecond.

“The hand of the LORD was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign LORD, you alone know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’ ”So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ ”So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army. Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. Then you, my people, will know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD.” Ezekiel 37:1-14.

God is faithful. He does miracles. Believe Him and spread great news in His name. Blessings to you.

Asmodeus is in Action Between the Hours of Midnight and 3:00am

It is between the hours of midnight and three in the morning that weak Christians and pagans join in celebration of human sensuality appreciation with much extravagant displays of uncontrolled worldly wealthy waste in nightclubs and many alcohol driven sexual gatherings and parties all across the globe.

The devil of sensuality and luxury, also known as asmodeus or the creature of judgement, is joined by many demonic principalities to make war, along with evil and malicious spirits, in the life of Christians with the goal of help condemning the sons and daughter of the living God for their sins.

In Brazil in general and Rio de Janeiro in specific, midnight is when the little hells of the well known Copacabana beach prostitution district opens to sinners of all nationalities and ages everyday with peak attendance on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The devil’s army are definitely in these places to corrupt the last good there is in the lives of desperate yet lukewarm Christians who refuse to fear the Lord.

Heavy drinking, drugs, nudity and in some instances live sex mark the evil weekend scene of the south zone of the city with a touch of rebellion against the commandments of the living God where demonic temptation takes precedence literally describing the damnation that exists in a small part of the wonderful city of Rio de Janeiro alone.

In addition to the former, a sect of voodoo priests also known as macumbeiros (known in Puerto Rico as santeiros, practitioners of santaria) spend their evenings starting at midnight usually up to 3:00am cursing corners of each street with chicken blood, alcoholic drink followed by macumba paraphernalia left behind.

Evil, pure evil! Services of satanism done at night while Christians are at sleeping at night sometimes awaken by 3:00am by an evil presence spirit wanting to terrorize the lives of weak Christians. No wonder why Rio de Janeiro is the city that never sleeps, literally.

In America, the conundrum is the same with different labels, especially in big cities like New York and Los Angeles California. Midnight is party hard tome, defiant drink heavily periods, many times with the goal of meeting a mate and with much rebellion ignore the laws that God has given us in the Bible, regardless of nationality, creed, color or political affiliation. Sin is everywhere in the nights of New York City and the city of Angels! In reality, it’s everywhere.

The language we speak here in the US is different, the scenery and culture overall is operationally less chaotic but the culture of rebellion leading to sin is the same as in Brazil in many ways because devils aren’t nation specific but a fallen legion seeking to destroy the best in you. Be aware.

There is much more to the seen that is in fact unseen. The spiritual warfare that exists between the principalities of demons and the angels of good that are among us all in the spiritual real is for real. You must be strong and live an upright life in the faith in order to be in the position of being unafraid of the eminent evil attacks that will head your way or in the lives of your closest friends and family members.

The demons are so many that a number of lukewarm and Christians who don’t repent from their sins wake up between the hours of midnight and 3:30am, also known as the hour of the devil, with nightmares and all sort of inexplicable events like waking up three days in a role at 3:00am with a bad dream or with a feeling of fear if the person isn’t a strong believer in Jesus Christ. Who do you think that is waking you up in that hour? Your body? Maybe but it could also be an evil spirit (or person) astro projecting themselves to curse you.

Listen carefully to this: Be very careful with whom you associate yourself with. What may appear to be an innocent exchange, like someone laying hands in a prayer or a free gift given by a person you don’t really know, can indeed be an instrument of evil… of witchcraft. In the Bible we learn a very important lesson about being a companion of fools, “Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.” Proverbs 13:20.

We also learn the following from scripture.

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14. “Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare.” Proverbs 22:24-25.

In the New Testament, we are made aware of this piece of scripture in second Peter, also warning us about spending time with fools fulls of sensual passions and corruption. Bad company corrupts and destroys the brethren, increasing the chances of demonic activity occurring between the hours of midnight and 3:00am.

“For, speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved. For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.” 2 Peter 2-18.

Many hear the word but choose to live in unrepentant sin. The enemy and his army devour the spirits of those who choose to join their evil mission by purposely rejecting the Lord making them an unofficial demon soldier in this life and the next. How much evil happens at 2:00am nationwide? Murders, drug parties, beatings and assaults, all that is destructive and ungodly.

John Ramirez and former general of the church of satan in New York City, in his life testimony on demons reinforce the topics and concepts presented in this piece. The angels of death operate at night. Let me extend this discussion. How much drug activity happens in Chicago everyday around 1:45am? How about in the Bronx? Or in Youngstown, OH? How about the hundreds of demon churches that meet between the hours of 7:00pm and 5:00am? With the intent to do evil on others?

It’s an ugly reality, this spiritual warfare that exists between us Christians and the members of the enemy’s army. We are going to be attacked because of our sinful nature but with a solid and close relationship with the Lord.

Being in His word, repenting from sin and going through the process and motions of sanctification, sinning less and repenting more, conquering old sins and habits and replacing them with blessings and service to others, is the only way for us to have the true grace of God and be defended against the devil’s hour attacks that many experience everyday across the globe.

Baal is at work in these hours, from midnight to 3:00am. Say no to the temptations of the flesh which leads to destruction. Say yes to the ways of the Lord and enjoy much peace. No matter where you live, evil does exist in the spiritual realm. The principalities and demon legions are at work, along with warlocks and witches, to bring terror and destruction to the lives of many.

Choose the opposition! Be a soldier in the army of God and live to advance His ways. We are to deny our old ways, repent, and take the cross in this life! “And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Matthew 8:34-38.

Choose God today and say goodbye to old evil ways. You need to sleep at night without fear and the presence of demons disturbing your sleep between the hours of midnight and 3:00am. It’s liberating to love a fearless life, I say. You can do it. Join the army of God. You won’t regret.

The Diabolical Behaviors of Lukewarm Christians

The devil, also known as the accuser, the evil archangel, who was defeated by archangel Michael and expelled from Heaven, is nothing less than diabolical in the literal sense. He is full of evil intent, rebellious, tempter entity, deceiver, liar, sinner, disguised as an angel of light or apostle of God yet full of malevolence, like many lukewarm Christians.

In my adult life, I have seen a major similarity in behavior between lukewarm Christians and satanists, with the exception that satanists are less concerned about conceiving their true self identify. Weak Christians are hypocrites, deny Satan culturally, and reject the idea of worshipping the enemy yet many times their behaviors resemble the ones practiced by the followers of the Luciferian religion.

Lukewarm Christian church members have called me names, maliciously gossiped behind my back, made my life a living hell in many universities for being a devoted Christian, using low and discriminatory tactics that would make their father, Beelzebub, very proud with their prideful actions and malevolent tendencies in the name of Jesus Christ.

I have been tempted to anger and hate and experienced devious behaviors from those who claim themselves to be followers of the way. Lukewarm Christians tried to deceive me multiple times especially in my professional career, lied and in several times behaved in a cruel, snakelike, mean-spirit fashion against me particularly in this past four years while living in Alabama and Tennessee.

But I know Jesus. God protects and shows me those who practice the anti-thesis of the truth through scripture, dreams and in real life events. The Lord has given me His discerning Holy Spirit, thank Goodness.

Remember: “Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made.” Genesis 3:1. How similar are lukewarm christian from the snake! They aren’t our brothers and sisters and they don’t belong in our Christian camp. “You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44.

Listen carefully: Real Christians are known for their Christian-like behaviors and loving fruits. Lukewarm Christianity is based on hateful behaviors, jealous tendencies, and demonic envious unloving treatment and communication. It’s so easy to spot non-Christians when we decide to make a vote to follow Jesus Christ.

Your defense against them? Prayer. “pray continually.” 1 Thessalonians 17. “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2. “Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.” 1 Timothy 2:8.

Being with God is a gift. He will open your eyes to the intricacies of this life if you ask. A lukewarm Christian can be a satanist in disguise, in my view. Be aware! Jesus in the sermon of the mount warned us, “By their fruits you will know them.”

God is good. Flee from lukewarm Christianity.

Just Because They Say They Are Doesn’t Mean Much

Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and don’t do what I say?” (Luke 6:46). “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles? Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’” Matthew 7: 22-23.

Have anyone treated you poorly yet calling themselves a Christian? I must admit that i have experienced more devilish behaviors by those who consider themselves to be Christians than those who follow or practice pagan religions and rituals. It’s a sad yet true reality that I’ve experienced, particularly in higher education.

“A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit; neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matt. 7:15–20). Listen carefully: “But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” Revelation 21:8.

When a Christian does evil to others (including Christians), it is a detestable horrible display of loving others as yourselves. Lying and the idolatry of the self (pride) for self gain by diminishing others along the way is also a demonic practice. Always test the spirits before believing what others may say.

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.” 1 John 4.

Don’t be afraid. Don’t be angry or mad, the Lord will take care of you, show you the ways of the devil and protect you against your enemies. Words can be easily said. Consistent actions aren’t always easily done. Be on the alert and read each person’s fine prints. It is amazing what you found when you dig deeper into someone’s true character.

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.” 1 John 4:7-12.

Be a man or woman of character who isn’t afraid to say that they love the Lord. Don’t believe the first thing somebody says without knowing who they are: it’s easy to speak but near impossible to fake a character. Never forget that.

Do People Really Love God?

Do we really love God? Not sure if we do. This is why… “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” John 14:15. Do we keep the Lord’s commands on a daily basis? Who among you keep the sabbath holy? God asked us, believers, a question back then still relevant to today’s believers, “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?” Luke 6:46.

“But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!” Luke 11:28. Unblessed are those who deviate from the instructions set by the Lord! Followers of the way, listen carefully to this: Either you are with God or you are with the Devil. When we decide to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, we are to carry his cross with us and deny the world’s temptations less and less. Much grace we will need, of course.

Let me extend this firmer though with more scripture…

“And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23. “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20. Giving our lives to the Lord is the only alternative to prove our love to Him.

It has also been written, “So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:33. If we don’t follow these God’s directives, do we really love God or simple say we love Him? When we are in God, we willingly say no to sin and strive to live a life for Jesus Christ.

We need to have the strong faith and actions of the psalmist, “I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your rules before me.” Psalm 119:30. Remember the words of Jesus in John 14:23, “Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.”

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.” James 1:22-25.

Oh God, have pity of us for our faith inadequacy and weak flesh. Not all of us know what is written in exodus 19:5, “Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples, for all the earth is mine.” Help us to be more like you and “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground!” Psalm 143:10.

Love? Love is following your commandments, repenting and sining less, oh God. “Know therefore today, and lay it to your heart, that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath; there is no other. Therefore you shall keep his statutes and his commandments, which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land that the Lord your God is giving you for all time.” Deuteronomy 4: 39-40.

Anything else other than following God’s commands? Not love, not quite, not really.

My Cry For Mercy Was Answered

“I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart.” Psalm 138:1. “Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked.” Psalms 140: 4. “Rescue me, O Lord, from evil men, protect me from men of violence.” Psalm 139:1. “O Lord, I say to you, You are my God, Hear my cry for mercy.” Psalm 140:6.

“Let not my heart be drawn to what is evil, to take part in wicked deeds, with men who are Evil doers. Let me not eat of their delicacies.” Psalm 141:4. “O Lord hear my prayer.“ Psalm 143:1. In you I trust, now and forever, in peace or not… by day or at night.

Enough my Lord. I say. In kindness and with much lower and strengths you were my cries this past month on July. You heard me and with your might and power you brought me closer to your will, leaving behind an ocean of injustice fueled by rivers of uncontrolled and demonic envy.

In your word I seat assured of your promises, oh God. All of my enemies fall under my feet because of your protection. in peace I continue to live my life. In war they choose to act and react but with God, who can be affected? He takes us away of much evil to a better place under the sun where honey is the reward.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6. “But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.” Psalm 59:16.

“The LORD is my strength and my defense ; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.” Exodus 15:2. God is faithful until eternity! Who can be better than Him? The Lord is my Sheppard and nothing will I lack under His wings because He is God, the only one.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10. You strengthened me and placed me under your right hand so that I could be uplifted.

I was down but you brought me up. I went right but you wanted me left. Your arms are music to my soul, my spirit is in peace singing you hymns of glory. By faith and faith alone, your monumental and eternal grace has reached my tiny sinful camp. I repent for all the sins I’ve committed in this life. How many were them! Yet, you take them all from a humble and sincere heart who believes in you.

It has been a difficult ride, what we call life, but in you I found refuge. So many testings, so many! “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” James 1:2-3.

I’m in peace. I’m content. You have placed your hands to protect me against the devil and his demon army. In you I trust and hope is at reach. Thanks be to God, my strength and my redeemer.
