What Does a Real Man Look Like?


Hey Everybody!

So I saw this message done by Lecrae about this topic and felt that it was such an important message that I’m going to post it here on my blog for all y’all to watch. He makes so many Key points on how the world defines men and how God defines what a “real” man looks like. This message isn’t just for men, but it’s for women to understand what a “real” man looks like.

Be Blessed today with this message by Lecrae, I know you’ll love it! :D

In Thy Name


God's NameHi Everybody,

Hope y’all are having a blessed weekend. Today, I want to post a video called “Thy Name”. 

The questions I have for your meditation today are:

Do you know who God is? Who is God to you?

Many people assume that they do many good works in His Name which make them stellar Christians in the eyes of people, but unfortunately, these same people ignore the voice of the Father (through the Holy Spirit) when He gives direction which is an act of DISOBEDIENCE.

If you are one of those that say “I have never heard the Lord say….” or “The Holy Spirit doesn’t speak to me…”, then You need to re-evaluate how you perceive yourself before the Father.

You need to have a revelation of who God is to you in order to hear what He is saying to  you in order for you to be who God wants you to be…and that is to be His child.

148663_10152093485351832_2085451673_nChildren of God are Children of obedience. Obedience is cultivated by a trust relationship. You need to Trust in the Father as the Father also has need to Trust in you.  Trust is built on Faith, and Faith comes by Hearing, and Hearing by the Word of the Lord (Romans 10:17).

Do you Trust God enough to Hear Him? Sometimes our Pride can cause us to be deaf to the Holy Spirit, but when we humble ourselves before Him and pray and seek His face, that is when we truly begin to Hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to “Us” the Church as little children (Revelation 2:7, 11, 17,29; Revelations 3:6, 13, 22).  

You know the saying that goes…“When the student is ready, the master will appear”. Well, in our case…it’s different. In our case it is

“When YOU, the Child of God is ready, the Father will appear”. 

Are you ready to be what you were predestined to be? 

As Jesus is the Great Shepherd, He tells us that “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”  (John 10:27).

In order to follow Jesus, we must be willing to hear what the Spirit of the Lord wants us to hear. 

God speaks to us everyday in so  many different ways. Do not put God in a box with your way of thinking. Learn to soften your heart and become sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. You can do this by meditating on the Word and acting on it by faith. When you reach out to the Father by faith, He will extend His hand to you. It’s all in His Word. He is not a man that He should lie. So reach out to Him today and learn to Hear from Him when He calls you by Name.

Scriptures to Meditate on: 

Psalm 73:28

But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, That I may declare all Your works.
Ecclesiastes 5:1

Fear God, Keep Your Vows ] Walk prudently when you go to the house of God; and draw nearto hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil.
James 4:8

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purifyyour hearts, you double-minded.
Numbers 23:19

“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said,and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

May This video by Shiftworship Bless your Spirit today. God bless you everybody! :D

Worshiper in Me


Hi Everybody!

I just had to share this song today by Javen feat. Jonathan Nelson called the Worshiper in Me.

I’ve been going through somethings that has made me wonder, where does God want to take me? I know that this year is calling forth for big things to happen and I’m at a stage where I’m willing to step out and step into what God is calling forth. When we worship…we step outside of ourselves and step into what God wants us to be. When I thought about that, this song came to my mind.

So I pray, that if anyone is still sitting on the fence regarding God’s plan for your life, my encouragement to you this day is that the Worshiper in you will help you see where God will take you if you just trust in the one you worship. Stop over thinking everything and just abandon yourself into that place where nothing and no one can distract you and shake your resolve to be what God wants you to be and has called you to be. You know who you are already, because you are a worshiper.  You are a “called out one”, you are His Church.

This year, the Churches that he builds will give him powerful worship that the world has never seen before. Those that are part of this building of churches will be blessed double for their trouble. Trust in him. During the sixth month, there will be a massive turn around in families, finances, and a great outpouring will be released on His willing vessels. The vessels of honor for God will give God the highest praise and everyone will know, that the Church of Jesus Christ is alive. He is the Resurrection and the Life…therefore, the dead church shall rise again. 

1 Kings 6:12

Concerning this temple which you are building, if you walk in My statutes, execute My judgments, keep all My commandments, and walk in them, then I will perform My word with you, which I spoke to your father David.

I pray that this song ministers to your spirit today. Stay blessed Everybody!

Just Like You Said


It’s been a while since I’ve last posted anything on my blog and I’m sure some of you missed me! lol. Well, I hope at least some of you did. ;)

Today,I want to post something for the Passover/Easter season. Sometimes we think of Jesus in terms of what He did for us on the cross which I think is always  going to remain in our hearts as amazing. However, let’s think and dig a little deeper this year and consider, what it is that he said during the days leading up to the cross.

Today, focus on this one thing… He is no longer dead. Jesus lives. Where? Inside of you and I…

Jesus is the Resurrection.

Sometimes we focus way too much on the death scene during Easter that we forget that Easter isn’t so much about the horrible death that our Lord endured on a tree… it was about the amazing victory he had and still has over defeating the powers of evil and the power of death that kept us separated from having everlasting life with Him in the first place.

Jesus Lives because He said He would. So we to shall live, because He said we would. Focus on the importance of the life He gave to us and remember what He said, happened. God always fulfills what He promises.

Numbers 23:19

God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
John 11:25

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
Enjoy the video everyone!

2013 is Over!


Hi Everybody!

I don’t know about you, but since  this is the last day of 2013, a year that has been filled with various disasters, losses and sad things that have made the world a perilous place to be, we must remember that despite all that we have gone through, God has helped us to weather each storm. A lot of things needed to be purged this year for us to enter into the  Year of 2014 victoriously. It may not seem like you feel victorious just because you’ve survived up to this point, but God is going to do a great work in 2014 and you have to hold on and be encouraged that God never left you and will never leave no matter what you have gone through. He has been with you through each battle so just know that You will be alright. Prophesy and declare and decree today what you want to see in the Year 2014, because this year is going to be very special since it’s a year where many dreams and prayers will be answered. I believe, so have faith in God because you will all make it through as long as you put your Trust in God.

Be encouraged and  know that God’s Plans stand firm forever. Here is a Song by Livre called I will be alright to bless your Spirit today! :) :D

God Bless you all my blogger friends and family! 2013 is over so welcome to the New Year with Praise and Thanksgiving, AMEN!

Prayer for 2014 – The Year of Great Awakening

Father God,

I lift up my family, my blogger friends, my real friends and others serving faithfully in Your Name to the throne of God.

For the Year 2014, cover us all under the Blood of Jesus (1 Peter 1:2; 1 John 1:7; 1 John 5:6; Revelation 1:5).

Walk with all of us like a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night (Exodus 13:21), Cover us with the full armor of God  as it says in your Word:

Ephesians 6: 10-20

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Father God it is time for the Year of the “Great Awakening” of God’s people to rise up as Judges of Righteousness being restored. This Year will be a year of answered prayers and many suddenlies. What took years to happen will happen in a matter of days, hours, minutes and seconds. It says in your Word that “the Just shall live by Faith” (Habakkuk 2:2Habakkuk 2:4; Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:26) for we are justified by the Faith that we have in You.

Romans 1:17

For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
 
Hebrews 10:38
Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”
 

I pray oh Lord that you will increase us with both wisdom and understanding and give us the tongue of the learned to spread the message of the Gospel in the Year 2014 as it says in  your Word:

Isaiah 50:4-5(NKJV)

The Lord God has given Me
The tongue of the learned,
That I should know how to speak
A word in season to him who is weary.
He awakens Me morning by morning,
He awakens My ear
To hear as the learned.
The Lord God has opened My ear;
And I was not rebellious,
Nor did I turn away.

This year is a year where many Houses of Prayer (Churches) will be established and built for Jesus is THE BRANCH and we are His Branches. Those that commit to the building of God’s people through the power of prayer and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit will be blessed in their comings, and in their goings, in the city and in the fields for those that keep the Word of the Lord from departing from their mouths for the Lord says:

1 Kings 6:12

Concerning this temple which you are building, if you walk in My statutes, execute My judgments, keep all My commandments, and walk in them, then I will perform My word with you, which I spoke to your father David.

Ezra 3:10-11(NKJV)

10 When the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the Lord, the priests stood[a] in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites, the sons of Asaph, with cymbals, to praise the Lord, according to the ordinance of David king of Israel. 11 And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord:

“For He is good,
For His mercy endures forever toward Israel.”[b]

Then all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.

The Lord will ignite spiritual giftings in the people of God that have laid dormant all this while for we shall be a people filled with the fire of Holy Spirit who will do mighty exploits to advance the message of the Kingdom from sea to sea from the North and to the South and from the East and to the West. For whatever the Lord has put together, let no man put it asunder (Mark 10:9).

6_jesus-lord-universe

Zechariah 6:12-13 (NKJV)

12 Then speak to him, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, saying:

“Behold, the Man whose name is the BRANCH!
From His place He shall branch out,
And He shall build the temple of the Lord;
13 Yes, He shall build the temple of the Lord.
He shall bear the glory,
And shall sit and rule on His throne;
So He shall be a priest on His throne,
And the counsel of peace shall be between them both.”’

The Lord Jesus who is the Chief Cornerstone will establish a Holy Church through His People and spring forth Judges who shall tear down the workers of iniquity for the time has come for righteousness to be restored.  The apostates shall be judged this year for they are the sons of destruction.

Ephesians 2:19-22 (NKJV)

Christ Our Cornerstone

19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

Isaiah 55:11

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
 

Everything will be done in divine perfection to God’s Will and perfect timing and for those who have struggled, you will receive double for your trouble and double the perfection of God’s will for your life this year. Trust Him and Draw Near to God and He will Draw near to You.

James 4:8
Draw near to God and He will draw nearto you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

God will crush the works of the enemy in your life and you shall be victorious and shall sing songs of DELIVERANCE for His Name sake and Give Glory due His name to Him who sits on the throne (Psalm 32:6-8). This will be a year where Righteous Judges will rise up and those who practice evil shall be exposed. God’s Will will be established as His Word will not return Void.

 

Jude 1:16-25(NKJV)

Apostates Predicted

16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. 17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 18 how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. 19 These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.

Maintain Your Life with God

20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

22 And on some have compassion, making a distinction;[a] 23 but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire,[b] hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.

Glory to God

24 Now to Him who is able to keep you[c] from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
25 To God our Savior,[d]
Who alone is wise,[e]
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,[f]
Both now and forever.
Amen.

2013 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 45,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 17 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
