From Satanist to Christian – The Power of the Loving Church


Hi Everybody,

I just had to share this testimony of John who was a Satanic Priest who practiced Santeria and the power of how the Loving Church helped him to Choose Jesus Christ as Lord.  The Power of the Loving Church can transform lives.

This Testimony is so moving and I feel that as Christians, we cannot underestimate the power of Love and the Prayers of the righteous that avail much. Love delivers hope where there was hoplessness. Love reveals the truth that sets people free. Jesus loves His Church and He loves ALL people. He loves you even if you do not believe in Him. Jesus believes in you. Watch this video and consider that if you are wavering in your faith, or if you don’t have a reason to believe in Jesus, know that Jesus came to Save you and me. He loves you so much that He does not want you to live without knowing the True love of God for His Children. You are loved by God and Jesus is the Good Shepherd. He will leave his flock in the pasture just to save that one that is lost or is not part of it, and bring that one back with the rest of the sheep. He will watch out for all of His people. Jesus loves you, believe that, receive that and accept Jesus into your life and watch Him move and do amazing things for you as you embark the journey of Faith in His Holy Name.

People of God, Christians, we haven’t got the time to judge others who don’t know Jesus. We are the light in the non-believers darkness, we are the Christ-like representatives that need to show them the heart of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through our actions. Demonstrate the true heart of the Good shepherd today. Show other people the love of God with your Actions. It’s not enough to talk about the love of God, you have to be the personified demonstration of that Love. Love through Action speaks greater volumes to a non-believer than words, because Love in Action is what fuels faith. Let us be the Love that the world who does not know God can see so that when they see it in action, they will believe in God and receive Jesus into their Heart and become saved. Think about this today and live love out loud.

God Bless you everybody!

 

John 10:1-21

New King James Version (NKJV)

Jesus the True Shepherd

10 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them.

Jesus the Good Shepherd

Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me[a] are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

1“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 1But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

17 “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. 18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

19 Therefore there was a division again among the Jews because of these sayings. 20 And many of them said, “He has a demon and is mad. Why do you listen to Him?”

21 Others said, “These are not the words of one who has a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?”

God’s Faithfulness – “I Will Never Leave You nor Forsake You, My love”


Hi Everybody!

I hope you all are having a beautiful Friday 🙂 . It’s starting to heat up out there so please refer back to my summer survival kit on what to do to prevent heat stroke and other summer related illnesses that some people encounter during heat waves. It is important to remain hydrated so drink up an ocean of water (ok…I’m exaggerating but please drink a lot of water ok people! 😀 ).

So today I want to talk about God’s faithfulness. God’s faithfulness is precious to us because He always keeps His promises. In knowing that we have a God that is NOT a man that He should lie, we must learn to walk in the same level of faith in that when He says that He will never leave us nor forsake us…we in return must never leave Him and forsake Him. We can talk about “well I’m only human…blah…blah… blah…excuse after excuse” to explain why we sometime falter in our Faith, but at the end of the day…we are not merely Human…we are Children of the Most High God. We enjoy the idea that He is forgiving, faithful, and patient…but are we???

I thought about that in regards to myself and realize that I seriously need to increase my Faith level to come to that place where I can truly say “I will never leave you nor forsake you my God”. You must be thinking….”Oh yea of little faith!!!”but again I say, “Have you walked a mile in my shoes?” from a previous post written about hindrances to prayer. When I went through a trial that tested my loyalty and faith to God so early in my salvation, it was then that I realized that honestly it’s so easy for us to turn away given the right amount of pressure. You’ve got to ask yourself…“What will it take for you to fall away from the Lord?” It’s easy to claim to “love Him” when things are going good…but what if all of a sudden calamity strikes us…what then of our Faith? The reason why I’m writing this is so that we don’t walk around in self-deception thinking that we have attained a high level of faith and that we will never encounter a time where that one decision to remain in God or forsake the Lord will be put to the test. I call such a test of faith to be The Job Test of Faith (Job 1-3) where everything you hold dear gets touched by the devil to test your level of love and faith for the Lord.  Be Sober and be viligilant, for this is no easy test…and unfortunately not everyone will pass it and those who claim to “love the Lord”, shall be tested. For those that endure the trial and still come out praising God, I say kudos to you and God bless you because your faith can withstand such a fiery trial and it just goes to show, that if you can do it, surely we all are capable of withstanding any test. Easier said than done but it’s worth thinking about it now rather than later.

I know that I’m still being tested each day and I take each test as they come. I fail some, I pass some…I also get re-tested <— didn’t see that one coming now did ya. Yes people, you will be retested on failed tests. When you pass the re-tests,  you overcome that cycle of insanity, which is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. How many of you can lift your hands and understand what I’m saying? Let me also remind you that we should all know that our lives are a whole big test of Faith. We choose how we are going to pass it or fail it by deciding if we believe in God or not and by living out what we believe. I’ve had my fair share of tests and I can tell you that it’s easy to break  down completely and choose to stray away given the right amount of pressure, but the most amazing thing is that even in our weakness, God never chooses to forsake us even though we may choose to do so. God’s love endures literally Forever. I have never met a love like that before, but it is definitely a feat to learn to love like Jesus.

So today, think about increasing your love for God. It’s one thing to learn to love people…but we must learn also how to minister to our God today by loving God and saying it everyday through our prayer life, our praise life and our worship life. As much as we seek affirmation of love and acceptance by people, God also seeks that same level of devotion to Him as well, but because He, like the Holy Spirit is a gentleman, He will not manipulate us or force us to love Him, because He has blessed us with the gift of free will to choose to do so. I have now gotten into the habit of saying “Good morning Father God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit” and also “Good afternoon” and “Good evening” because it’s something we take for granted. We say it to people all the time but do we say it to our Lord? Do you welcome His presence in your day? The Lord is with us in our entire day and its amazing how we forget Him so easily.  We should not forget the Lord our God who sent His Son to save us from the slavery of Sin and redeemed us back into the Kingdom of God through His precious blood. The Lord Jesus sent us The Helper who is the  Holy Spirit and He yearns to converse with us, but are we inclined to Hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to “us” the Churches???? Let us love on God today and remember that His faithfullness in us is what we must demonstrate back to Him in return. God Bless you everybody and have a blessed Weekend!

I have 2 songs by Jesus Culture called Where You Go I Go and You Won’t Relent ( I know I’ve posted this song before but I love it 😀 ) . I figured I’d bless y’all with sounds of worship. I pray that these songs minister to your spirit today. God bless you everybody!
