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.

The Christmas Gospel


Hi Everybody!

I know it’s been a busy month for everybody trying to wrap up things before the Christmas holidays, but let me just state that Jesus is the Reason for the Season and the whole point is no matter how inaccurate historians maybe about Dec 25th being Jesus’ birthday (which most of us know that it is not), the whole point is, it is a time of celebration concerning the Fact that Christ came to Save us all from the penalty of sin which is death, through what He did at Calvary by dying on the Cross and Resurrecting from the dead three days later in fulfillment of the scriptures.

Our Lord Jesus came down from Heaven to be born as a man to teach us all about God’s Kingdom, bear our sins on the cross and defeat the power of death so that we could all be redeemed and be reborn to be reunited with Him again by acknowledging that He is indeed our Savior. Such compassion shown by our God is worthy of all our praise and when you begin to realize, Jesus’ birth was not done in vain, the master plan was to restore all of us back into the fullness of our positions as joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. Through this, we have so much to be thankful for and so much to give to God and to others by our way of worship back to the Father for all that He has done for us.

Jesus came down to give us the gift of hope through salvation so that in return, we would do the same by blessing those around us with the same gift of hope to return back to the heart and the love of the Father.

Extend your love to others so that the light of Christ love shining through you can reach others who live in darkness.

Isaiah 9:6

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
 

I want to bless all my blogger friends and all those that read this blog a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Doxology: Live to Praise and Worship Him Daily


Hi Everybody!

Today, I have a video from my favourite person Dan Stevers called Doxology (means: a liturgical formula of praise to God.).

I feel that we must really seek a life that gives us reasons to praise and worship God daily. It says in: Psalm 150:6  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. If we all have breath, we must live life with praise continually being in our mouths. Each day is a blessing in that many people did not see today, but if you are reading this…you are blessed to be alive. Life is a precious gift. Let us not squander this life with prayer-lessness, praise-lessness and worship-lessness (I know, I’m making up these words – humor me).  God seeks those that will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

John 4:23

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

We cannot worship the Father in this way if our flesh is fed more than our spirit.

The Lord Jesus sent us a Helper, who is the Holy Spirit to show us how to live life in a state of worship unto God Daily. It’s time to starve our fleshy desires and feed our spirits with the Holy things of God. We have to go back to the basics and reclaim our unity with the Holy Spirit once again. If we want to walk in the full power of the Spirit, we need to do what is necessary in order to feed it and die to the flesh.

The World is full of distractions, but we have the Bible to show us how we can maintain our focus on the important things in life.

God has to be your TOP #1 priority before anything else. Many people think that by putting God first you automatically get stuff…which we call “blessings”, but that in a way is a form of self-deception in that if all you are seeking is to get stuff from God, then you are still entertaining the fleshy side of you that seeks self-gratification through things, rather than seeking the intimacy one achieves by being in constant communication with the Lord of Hosts, our Lord Jesus Christ.

God seeks relationship, and worship is that link that brings us closer to Him. The reason why He seeks worshipers to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, is because it is only through the Spirit, and it is only in those who pursue and live by the Truth that will be able to tap into the very Heart of God.

John 16:13

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

David is a great example of such a worshiper, for he was a man after God’s Heart. The question we must ask ourselves today is … Are we after God’s heart, or are we after God’s stuff?

As I spend time in my prayer closet, I’ve come to feel that God is always near us…but the reason why it seems like He is so far away from us at times is because we haven’t fine tuned our spirits truthfully to hear Him when He calls us. Instead, we have nurtured a heart that seeks after the things that give us temporary pleasures and have ultimately blocked out the voice of Holy Spirit. What will it take for God to get your full attention? It’s amazing that in most cases, people remember God in the bad times…but God doesn’t want to be remembered only in the bad times….He wants to be a part of all the Good times in your life as well.

I believe that it is time for God to take the Throne-room of our hearts and take a seat. God is sovereign and He will only become sovereign to you when you decide that other things can wait, because “Lord, Your servant is listening.” I believe that in the present time, God wants to use those whose hearts are seeking Him diligently. It’s time to bend to the Will of God for your lives and it’s time to forsake our selfish attitudes and set aside our differences with people so that forgiveness reigns in your heart and peace travels with you because it says in God’s Word, that Only the Pure in Heart will see God.

Matthew 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
So everybody, search deep within the crevices of your hearts and consider that it’s time to feed your Spirit and bury your fleshy way of life, because in the end, your body will perish one day, but it is your spirit that will live on into the next eternity.Make sure you live a life that prepares you for your eternity into the next by living to Praise and Worship God Daily.
I have a song here by Isaach Carree called Paradise. I pray that this video blesses your spirit today. God bless you everybody!
