Have a beautifully blessed Monday! 03-07-22

I Am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life

Joh 14:1  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

Joh 14:2  In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it werenot so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Joh 14:3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Joh 14:4  And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Joh 14:5  Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

Joh 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Joh 14:7  If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

Joh 14:8  Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

Joh 14:9  Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then,Shew us the Father?

Joh 14:10  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

Joh 14:11  Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

Joh 14:12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater worksthan these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Joh 14:13  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Joh 14:14  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

Joh 14:15  If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Joh 14:16  And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Joh 14:17  Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Joh 14:18  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Joh 14:19  Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

Joh 14:20  At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

Joh 14:21  He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Joh 14:22  Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

Joh 14:23  Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Joh 14:24  He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

Joh 14:25  These things have I spoken unto you, being yetpresent with you.

Joh 14:26  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Joh 14:27  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Joh 14:28  Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

Joh 14:29  And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

Joh 14:30  Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

Joh 14:31  But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

Devil stop trying to slow me down you’re behind me.

Something is always trying to slow me down. I’m getting older now I’m not that fast anymore. Devil you don’t have to keep trying to slow me down. I go as fast as God allows me to! I’m not the old me, I’m under new management. His name is Jesus, thank you.

God fed Elijah the Tishbite and will do the same for you.

Good Sunday Morning!

With all that is going in this world today one can experience a little of needless worry. It’s good to “stock up” as they say but don’t hoard. Leave some to others. Get only your portion, especially if you are a believer.

God used Ravens to feed Elijah for nearly 3 1/2 years and gave him fresh brook water. How much more will He do this for New Testament believers?

Trust the process.

1 Kings 17:4-9
[4]And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.
[5]So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.
[6]And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.
[7]And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.
[8]And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,
[9]Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.

Good Tuesday Morning! 02/08/22

Prepare your hearts and fill your lamps and get yourself ready for the presence of the King of kings and Lord of lords, the creator of all things in existence. You are a child of the Most High God and a sibling of our eldest brother in the family of God… Jesus the Christ. Your Big Brother loves you. That is something to be thankful for. Have a beautiful day.

Mar 6:3  Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

Joh 11:19  And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

Prayer for Spiritual Strength

Eph 3:14  For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Eph 3:15  Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

Eph 3:16  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

Eph 3:17  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

Eph 3:18  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

Eph 3:19  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Eph 3:20  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Eph 3:21  Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Tithing revised 12/08/21

Good Morning, Good Afternoon and/or Good Evening wherever you are. I pray that your day is blessed and if it doesn’t seem to be going that way…..Bless it yourself! God lives in you. Today the topic is “Tithing Revised.” Now years ago, I felt a lot different than I have been feeling lately. I have to admit that, because of greedy preachers and abusers of the Word, I had become hard-hearted about tithing and even lost some so-called “friends” over the topic. I didn’t absolutely hate tithing, no, but I was morbid about the way that ministers stood in the pulpit and instilled fear about tithing upon all who listened. God is not pleased with the fear-mongering going on in His pulpit today. And no, God is not going to strike you and your household with illnesses or flatten your tires, but He will give you awesome favor if you bless His Kingdom. I have a myriad of notes here so hang in there with me. There may be a few that you will have to write down and study later ok? So get your Swords, a drink and a snack, and maybe a tablet and pen and sit back and I will delve into this subject, right after this.

(SONG: Dulcimer- Give Thanks.)

(Prayer) Thank you Father for rising us up this morning and being Who you are in our lives. You are the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last. We worship, praise and adore you Father. Jesus said “The Father and I are One” and we are saying that today and everyday to remind the enemy that we are nothing to contend with in Jesus name. We are the righteousness of God, the Children of the Most High. Nothing by any means shall hurt us. By your stripes Jesus we’ve actually BEEN healed. We thank you for that. In Jesus name, I speak peace, love and joy into the hearts and households of those who come on to listen to the Word. Psalm 23, we shall want for NO THING! Use me Holy Spirit to teach the correct way and show people that you bless others by using our hands. We don’t want to be stingy Christians or those with the poor victim mentality. Forgive us for being hard-hearted against allowing you to use our hands and time. Father we pray for those who may be considering suicide which is what you showed me in my dream last night. To that person who may be listening right now, know that God hears you and is answering your prayers. Hold on to God’s unchanging hand. Wait for another day, it may contain your answer. In Jesus name, amen.

{SERMON}

God shows Abram the stars and makes him Father of many.
Gen 15:5  And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
Gen 15:6  And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

I’ll start out with “The Priestly Order of Melchizedek”
Melchizedek was a Priest without mother or father, beginning nor end and is said to be a pre-incarnate Christ of which Abraham tithed a tenth to even before it was required to do so. He showed up out of nowhere to bless Abraham. Abraham knew something. Abraham had faith and trusted God. Melchizedek meets Abraham on his return from battle, gives him bread and wine (which has been interpreted by some Christian scholars as a precursor of Communion, and blesses Abraham in the name of “God Most High” (in Hebrew El ʿElyon). In return, Abraham gives him a tithe of the booty.
Melchizedek means “My King Is [the god] Sedek” or “My King Is Righteousness” (the meaning of the similar Hebrew cognate). Salem, of which he is said to be king, is very probably Jerusalem. Psalm 76:2 refers to Salem in a way that implies that it is synonymous with Jerusalem, and the reference in Gen. 14:17 to “the King’s Valley” further confirms this identification. The god whom Melchizedek serves as priest is “El ʿElyon.”
Abram Blessed by Melchizedek
Gen 14:17  And the king of Salem went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king’s dale.
Gen 14:18  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
Gen 14:19  And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
Gen 14:20  And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
Gen 14:21  And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.
Gen 14:22  And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,
Gen 14:23  That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
Gen 14:24  Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.


Heb 7:1  For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
Heb 7:2  To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
Heb 7:3  Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
Heb 7:4  Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
Heb 7:5  And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:
Heb 7:6  But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.
Heb 7:7  And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.
Heb 7:8  And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.
Heb 7:9  And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
Heb 7:10  For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.

Jesus Compared to Melchizedek
Heb 7:11  If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron? {If the Law was so great, what need would we have for Jesus?}
Heb 7:12  For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
Heb 7:13  For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
Heb 7:14  For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
Heb 7:15  And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
Heb 7:16  Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
Heb 7:17  For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Tithing defined in the religious sense is a tenth, the tenth part. Hebrew word being “Ma’ asar” . “Asar” – a prime root word, ten, to tithe, take or give a tenth. Greek, “Apodekatoo” to tithe, as a debtor or creditor. “Apo” means off or away. “Dekatoo” means to tithe, to give, take a tenth. “Dekate” a tenth. Even the word “Decade” means 10 years. In Genesis 28:22 we see that Jacob gave a tenth. The Hebrew word used is “asar” which means to tithe. Now there is a difference between tithing, offering, giving and alms. Yes, God wants us to give but not as though you belong to the local Lodge or a club. He wants you to give out of your heart. Tis better to give than to receive. Another proverb: Don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give it away and bless somebody before the devil tries to stop you!!! God loves a cheerful GIVER. Luke 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Giving to ministries gives Eternal results. 1Co 9:9  For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? You are supposed to give where you are spiritually fed and see that others are fed, encouraged and challenged. It provides spiritual nourishment. You are actually giving directly to God. He is the one who will multiply the seed. 2 Cor 9:6 Sow sparingly reap that way. Sow generously, you reap that way.
1Co 9:10  Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
1Co 9:11  If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?

Jesus commanded us to:

Luk 10:7  And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
Luk 10:8  And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
Luk 10:9  And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Abuse of the calling to tithe:

Pastors all over the World immediately go to Malachi 3:10 and 11 when they describe tithing to their congregants which says: Mal 3:10  Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
Mal 3:11  And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 3:12  And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

What many folks don’t realize is that before Malachi 3, God speaks to Pastors/Leaders/Priests in Malachi 1 and 2 who were stealing from the tithes, but you barely if not rarely hear any preaching out of those chapters. And some of you on today may have never even realized that Malachi 2 was dedicated to gangster Priests. Yes, it speaks of all of us, but these passages are mainly for those who were called after the order of Melchizadek – to stop robbing God! Check out Malachi 2 which is even titled in most of our bibles as “The Lord rebukes Priests” which reads like this:

The Lord Rebukes the Priests

Mal 2:1  And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.
Mal 2:2  If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.
Mal 2:3  Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.
Mal 2:4  And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 2:5  My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.
Mal 2:6  The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
Mal 2:7  For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
Mal 2:8  But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 2:9  Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law. (They were “do as I say” people not “do as I do” much like today. Giving the Word but not living it.)

In short… the Priests were greedy, they were stealing, robbing God. Mal 3:8  Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Here’s the catch: Where it asks “Will a man rob God?” Preachers used to throw that sentence across the pulpit like we were sinners going to Hell didn’t they? What they failed to know, study or share is the fact that those scriptures were aimed at them not necessarily the congregation. Did you know that? Did they ever explain that to you during Wednesday night bible studies?

➢➢➢😇My problem with the abuse of tithes:
For years I’ve argued the use of Malachi 3 being used by some pastors who were more worried about making their Mercedes payments instead of paying the churches bills and helping out the widows and orphans or the single parents who need to keep their water, electric or gas on. Have you ever seen churches where the Building Fund never really does build anything and the furnace and roof are 1 year of falling out and/or through? You almost have to bring an electric blanket with you on Winter Sundays because it’s so cold and the furnace only covers part of the church building. How many of you are still waiting for a new sidewalk or a new roof with your churches building fund? Or maybe even a handicap ramp so folks can come and get healed and walk back out of the church! What about the churches that charge for funerals like McDonald’s restaurant’s numbered meals? You can pay so much for the funeral but there’s more charges if you want various types of food for those who attend. It’s even more if you want a singer or instrumentalist. It’s like a Catering Business!!!!!! And God forbid that you choose pork chops and macaroni and cheese over baked chicken and greens! But yet the person in the back of the church who owes $600 for taxes to save their house before getting a Sheriff’s sale is refused because the church got an $18,000.00 carpet job done, and that person loses their home. This is a real story folks and you know what? 2 weeks later the church got flooded horribly. That person just may have been sent by God to bless that church. We’ll never know. Choose wisely.

➢➢💳$€ In Malachi 2, the people were tithing to the Priests as they were called to do but the Priests were dipping in the Tithe for a more ‘pleasant’ lifestyle. The flesh always tries to steal from God. That’s something to think about. And get this, fleshly churches could care less about your Sheriff’s Sale, whether you have kids or not.
☑️ I love this:
In the Word, some of the people gave food, some gave money and some gave livestock but they WERE giving. There were different ways that people of different backgrounds and lifestyles were to give. Here’s something to think about, notice in the bible it doesn’t necessarily say that Jesus tithed. The Word does say that He practiced Israeli ways but the subject is not clearly brought up. Not only that, Priests enjoy the tithe. I believe that it wasn’t clearly brought up because Jesus was a Carpenter and carpenter’s didn’t tithe. Tithe was mainly money, livestock or crops.

ANYTHING that you can give to the body of Christ or your local church or minister helps. It’s not always money but according to the Word, Money does answer all things. Ecc 10:19  A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things. It allows your Pastor to make up their mind what they want to fix, help or feed with the offerings and tithes.

This is where the rubber meets the road folks:

God created the Heavens and the Earth. Man created money. God doesn’t need our self-created cash BUT your fellow Christian and/or leader in Christ does. God uses people to bless people!!!!! Barbra Streisand had a point when she sang “People who need people are the luckiest (blessed) people in the World.” And no ‘luck’ does not always refer to “Luc-ifer” but is meant to be ‘blessings’ as well. It’s all in the heart and the way that you mean it.
It makes sense that our bodies need food. Pastors and the Priests cannot eat money, but they surely can eat with the money. Amen? Try to give them more than just money though. That can be considered as a tithe. If they need something for their ministry, go into your QVC, Fingerhut, Amazon, Walmart, or Kohl’s account and get it for them! Have it sent to their address or the church! Send them a swivel chair for their office, a beautiful bible, Strongs concordance, pen and pencil set, a copier for their office or something! Amen? You can give them your time as well. Volunteer to help at the church or pay a bill for them. Bring in some food to give away or clothing. Clean the bathroom or sweep the floor sometimes. Jehovah Jireh provides ALL not just money.

Since I began to understand the tithe, I’ve been blessed to the fullest. As David said, “I shall not want.” It comes to me in bits and pieces and I like it like that. I can see God in it. There is always a ram in the bush. No one can say that if it weren’t for them, Rev Essie wouldn’t have a dime. God sees to that. God is good. It comes from the North, South, East and West. I never know where my next blessing will come from! That is real folks. Something has been happening to me. I can testify about that. It can happen to you as well if you just open your heart and start tithing and/or giving. Tithing is NOT a hoax. Tithing is real. And it surpasses magic by a long shot. No voodoo doll or spell will bring anything to you like the blessings of tithing can! Praise Jesus! That’s temporary stuff, God’s blessings are eternal. God is good!

Don’t boast about it:

Giving to the Needy
Mat 6:1  Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Mat 6:2  Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Mat 6:3  But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
Mat 6:4  That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Rewards of tithing/giving:
Mat 25:34  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
Mat 25:35  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Mat 25:36  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Mat 25:37  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
Mat 25:38  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Mat 25:39  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
Mat 25:40  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

We give/tithe because it is the Lord’s. Lev 27:30 “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s: it is holy unto the Lord. And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord. He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy: it shall not be redeemed. These are the commandments which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.”

  1. Reasons for tithing or giving, and I must add that tithing is NOT essential to your salvation. You will NOT go to Hell for NOT doing so. It’s helps and although some preachers make it seem this way but, it is not necessary in order to be saved. You will not be cursed and your car won’t shut down, your tires won’t go flat, your loved ones won’t get sick and you will not get Cancer for not tithing much to the devil’s (and his advocates chagrin.) But if you do make the decision to tithe, your blessings will rain back down upon you. Devils can’t stop the blessings that have been brought about by tithing. When you obey God’s commandments, demons have to step back and bow to your requests. I have to study up on it but I do not remember seeing anything about Daniel tithing. He prayed 3 times a day but he was under enemy kings (more than one) and I don’t know if he tithed to them or not. Maybe his service to them, I don’t know. It took 21 days to get his answer because the “Prince of Persia” (demon) battled the Angel who was to deliver the answer to Daniel. Tithing SURPASSES the 21 day limit. You don’t always have to wait. God said that He will POUR OUT YOUR BLESSINGS in Malachi 3:10. There are only ⅓ demons around us. There aren’t enough to stop God’s Rain, amen? God’s Rain + ⅔ angels brings about Victory!
    To spread the gospel, this is the biggest reason. Mark 16:15. Preach and teach to every creature. Matthew 28:20. To support God’s work and His ministers. Deut 12:19, 1 Cor 9:7-14, Phil 4:14-16. Please read those scriptures.
    Numbers 18:20-21 And the Lord spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I am thy part and thine inheritance among the children of Israel. 21 And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation. (No one can say that if it wants for them, the Pastor would have nothing. God is better than Allstate. (Insurance.)
    Watch what happens when your read it from a Jewish perspective which is the ‘original’ way to read it, the Complete Jewish Bible by David Stern says:
    “You are not to have an inheritance or portion in their land: I am your portion and inheritance among the people of Israel. To the descendants of Levi I have given the entire tenth of the “produce” collected in Israel. It is their inheritance in payment for the service they render in the tent of meeting.”
    There is a difference between money and produce. Tithing is not always money. We have to get this straight or the church will miss it’s blessings. Do you remember when people used to invite the preacher over for dinner and he’d enjoy it, laugh, talk and then go home satisfied? That’s a type of tithing. Food.
    Other places the tithe (mint, anise, and cummin is mentioned: Matthew 23:23, Luke 11:42
    Places where the tenth is mentioned: Hebrews 7:1-4
    Jacob mentioned giving a tenth in Genesis 28:20-22
    Mat 12:35  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
  2. Why do we tithe?
    We give/tithe because it is the Lord’s. Lev 27:30 “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s: it is holy unto the Lord. And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord. He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy: it shall not be redeemed. These are the commandments which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.” NOTE: NOT money but flock. Tithing is MORE THAN 💵💸💲
    Deuteronomy 14:22-23 “Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place His name there, the tithe of thy corn, wine and oil, the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.” (Give respect where respect is due.)
    Proverbs 3:9 “Honor the LORD with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase.” (NOT just money.)
    When and whatever you decide to tithe, God will honor it. Below are some blessings of tithing/giving:
    a. You will be blessed in all that you do. Deut 12:6-7 and Deut. 14:28-29.
b. Barns will be full. Prov 3:9-10
c. It shall be returned to you. Eccl 11:1 and Luke 6:38
d. Malachai 3….There will be meat in God’s house, the windows of Heaven will be open unto you and God will pour you out a blessing that you won’t have room to receive it. (Put others first and God will see it and bless you.)
    e. God will rebuke the devourer, he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground. 6. All nations shall call you blessed. Your light will shine. People will see that you are an obedient and loving Child of God.
f. Ye shall be a delightsome land.
  3. Where should you tithe/give?
    Numbers 18:21 To the minister of God. Deut 12:5-6 to the church/fellowship that God placed you in. Into the storehouse where you are being fed. Wherever you are receiving Good Word, fertile seed. Where the Word of God is being taught and where God is ministering through His minister. Some people give all of their attention to one minister but out of a manipulative spirit they give to another just to get attention and they attempt to manipulate their ministries. Example: The little old lady who gives so much to the church that she can tell the Pastor when to wind it up, with a simple double cough and a stare. Manipulation of tithing. Witchcraft at it’s finest form.
  4. Who should pay tithes?
    Everyone – Deut 12:6, 14:1, 22.
    Deu 12:6  And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks:
    Deu 12:7  And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.
    Paying of tithes is a principle of God, so therefore this same principle can be and should be applied to the church, minister or ministry.
    There is a minister within New Birth Ministries who was online once and saw good cans of food that she liked. The Lord laid it on her heart to send boxes and boxes of canned food and other staples to the ministers of NB. It was such a blessing and it was right on time. God is good. It was such a blessing to open the boxes and see all of that canned food! God bless her.
  5. Have a correct attitude.
    Without a correct attitude in the giving of your tithe, you will not receive any of the blessings. Give willingly – 2 Cor 8:12. Ex 25:2, Deut 12:6 (Not under bondage), 1 Chron 29:9.
Give freely – Matt 10:8
Not grudgingly – “Lupe” sadness, grief, grievous, heaviness, sorrow.
    Cheerful – “hilaios” see the word “hilarious” there? Merry. Prompt. Willing. Cheerful.
Not of necessity – Give not as under the law as in “I have to”. Give freely, cheerfully as having a spirit of giving. “I want to.” Deu 12:6  And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks: Deu 12:7  And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.
  6. Ways to give…..
    Give faithfully. 2 Chron 31:11-12, Matt 25:23
Not out of habit. Matt 23:23
Give to God, you are not just giving to a church or a preacher. Have God in your heart when you give. Don’t worry about what he/she does with it. God knows your intentions and sees your faithfulness. Give in secret. Matt 6:1-4
Not prideful or boastful. Luke 18:9-14
In faith. Malachi 3:10 Prove God. He’s waiting for you to do so. He will NOT let you down. Come to the point where we are willing to give all. Luke 14:33.
    One thing is for sure, Jesus set us all free from the bondage of the Law and put us in His Grace as of now. Hebrews 7:11-12 tells us that if the Levitical Priesthood was all that and a bag of chips we wouldn’t have needed Jesus to come straighten things out and give a way of escape. Verse 12 specifically states that “if the priesthood being CHANGED there is made of necessity a change also of the law.”
    Simply put, and I will use a term that some preachers don’t like but as you can see, it’s in your bible……JESUS ‘CHANGED’ THE LAW.
    Tithe if you can my friend, it’s a beautiful thing to do and you will receive many blessing from your Father in Heaven for doing so and being obedient for obedience is greater than sacrifice. If you feel that you can’t, that is according to your faith my friend. God is not in the Hell-sending business. Jesus paid the price, He would appreciate your helping others but He really doesn’t need your money. He wants YOU.

Are you saved? Now is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. With all that is going on around the world, you need a friend. Jesus can be that special friend if you allow Him into your life. He is your helper and His Holy Spirit is your Comforter.
If you are not saved, just repeat the Romans Road after me: Say “Jesus, I repent of my sins, I am so sorry Lord. I believe that you died on the cross and rose 3 days later from the dead, just for me and I accept what you have done, I accept you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus, amen.” Now go find a bible believing, Holy Ghost filled church and learn of Him, it’s never too late. Your new life starts now. All old things are gone away. God throws them as far as the East if from the West. Now….go live, laugh and love! 
Num 6:24  The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25  The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26  The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Thank you for coming on today and I pray that your week goes by Victoriously!

Good Saturday morning December 4, 2021

Sing to the Lord a New Song

Psa 149:1  Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.

Psa 149:2  Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

Psa 149:3  Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

Psa 149:4  For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

Psa 149:5  Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

Psa 149:6  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;

Psa 149:7  To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

Psa 149:8  To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

Psa 149:9  To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

e-Sword

Psalms 149:1—150:6

THE PRAISE-SONGS OF GOD’S PEOPLE

Israel was formed into a nation and delivered from Babylon, that her singers should lead the praises of mankind, and her teachers provide the metaphors and phrases for the world’s religious nurture. “This people have I made for myself,” said the Most High, “that they might show forth my praise.” Is it not also our Christian duty to be joyful in our King? Our religious life has not enough ecstasy and gladness in it to attract the world, which is sad enough beneath its outward gaiety.

A worthy close to the Psalter. Ten times the summons to praise rings out, and ten is the number of perfection. Think of the tears and groans, the questionings and perplexities, the feeble faith and disappointed aspiration, that have preceded! Now it all finishes thus! So life will finish! Our Misereres will be forgotten in the outbursting Jubilates . The first three books of the Psalter end with Amen and Amen, the firm expression of faith. The fourth book with Amen, Hallelujah, as though faith were beginning to be lost in glad realization. But here, at the end of all, there is one abounding and unhesitating Hallelujah!

Good Wednesday morning! December 1, 2021

God is sending angels your way to guard you, to guide you, to keep you safe and wrapped in his arms. I bless your December, your new month, in Jesus name, covered by his blood. This is the month that we celebrate the birth of our Savior so let’s do it all month long. Let’s show the world who is boss. Jesus Christ the King.

Joh 16:21  A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

Joh 4:42  And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world. Luk 2:12  And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
Luk 2:16  And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
Isa 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isa 9:7  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
THE PRINCE OF PEACE
When men cease to trust in God and rely on the help of man, they often turn to necromancy and spirit-rapping. The medium takes the place of the Mediator. The séance is sought after instead of the Law and the Testimony. What have God’s children to do with back-stair gossip, when their Father’s presence-chamber is open to them? What He does not tell us is not worth our knowing.
What titles are these for our Lord! They befit no human babe! Let us place the government of our lives on His shoulders; and as it extends so shall our peace. Ask God’s zeal to do this for thee! In the power of His grace, put the government of all on the wonderful Son of God.

Good Wednesday Morning! 09/08/21

The Lord is our Shepherd and we shall not want. We are blessed to rise up every morning and bless the creator of all things. It is an honor to belong to the family of God. It is an honor to bless the Lord at all times and keep his praise continually in our mouth’s. I pray that all of you slept very well last night, I know by the grace of God, I did. No matter what kind of dream you had last night don’t allow those dreams to ruin your day. Everybody can’t be like Joseph. If the dream is important God will send you signs and let you know. As a Seer, I keep journals and notebooks and record my dreams. Then you can go back and read them years later and see exactly what took place at that time. Sometimes people come to me with their dreams and I interpret them only if I can. And sometimes people also try me just to see if I can really interpret dreams. I had one lady that used to make up dreams just to see how I would interpret them. They don’t think I know it, but I know when they’re trying me, lol. And did I mention that I have exceptionally strong discernment? A few years ago it got so bad that sometimes people would use me as though I were a Tarot card reader or doing horoscopes for them. There are times that I have to turn people down if it’s getting too bad. They don’t mean any harm but things happen you know?


When you wake up in the morning smile and say “good morning” to JESUS and ask him what he would have you to do throughout the day. Some of us are afraid to ask because we think that he would not include us in His plans and let’s admit, that is selfish thinking. Yahweh is not gonna ask you to do anything that would embarrass you. In fact he would do it better than us.

This past Saturday, September 4th we had a beautiful gathering here at my house and still, when I woke up this morning, 4 days later I still felt the peace that passes all understanding. The children played, the adults did praise and worship, we got the word in by a beautiful woman of God, we ate well and did communion. God was here, God is here, and God will always be here. No weapon formed against us shall prosper and everything that rises up against us shall fall. In Jesus’s name I bless your household, your finances, your health, your children, your loved ones, your upline, your downline, your family, and your health in Jesus name. Believe and it shall be so.

Isn’t it funny that whenever people hear that somebody messes with voodoo dolls or they put a spell on someone, everybody becomes fearful and they believe in that more than the word of God? Fear tries to take over the lives of human beings. The devil uses fear because he’s angry at us. He is angry because Jesus saved us from him and having a horrible eternity like his. The devil is trying to take as many souls as he can just make sure he doesn’t take yours. Hell is real.


The Rich Man and Lazarus

Luk 16:19  There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

Luk 16:20  And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

Luk 16:21  And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

Luk 16:22  And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

Luk 16:23  And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

Luk 16:24  And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

Luk 16:25  But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

Luk 16:26  And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Luk 16:27  Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:

Luk 16:28  For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

Luk 16:29  Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

Luk 16:30  And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

Luk 16:31  And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

The Bible is the truth and everything that is in it is the truth. There is a hell and there’s a heaven and there are many people who died and went to hell and came back to tell the story, warning us not to go there. They warn us that Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life. God had them come back to tell people to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and have a beautiful eternity.

If you haven’t been saved yet all you have to do is repeat after this and say “Jesus forgive me of my sins? I accept you as my Savior and Lord. I believe you died on the cross just for me and rose three days later just for me. I love you JESUS please show me more of you every day.”

Welcome to the family of God my friend! Get a Bible, go to a good church that preaches the entire Bible and learn of him. Anything that you need ask God for FIRST. He will never let you down.

Have an exceptionally beautifully blessed day,

Rev Essie

Good Wednesday Morning! 4/21/21

Don’t go the way of less resistance, always tell the truth of the matter. The world is wicked, be different.

Joh 16:13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Joh 16:14  He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
Joh 16:15  All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.


LOOKING BEYOND PRESENT SORROW
The disciples were terribly overwrought by the events of the last few days, the reversal of their cherished hopes, and the growing darkness and sorrow of the approaching cross. Their physical nature and their minds and affections could bear no more. Sorrow had filled their heart, and the Master forbore to describe in further detail the valley of shadow through which they were still to pass.
A comparison of the Gospels and Epistles will indicate how much our Lord left unsaid. All this remained for the Spirit’s teaching, to be communicated to the Church through the Apostles. It is thus that Christ deals with us still, apportioning our trials to our strength, our discipline to our spiritual capacity. We long to know God’s secret plans for ourselves, and for those whom we love. Where does the path lead which we are treading, and which dips so swiftly and abruptly? How much longer will the fight be maintained between Truth on the scaffold and Wrong on the throne? What is the explanation of the mystery of evil, of the sorrow and agony of the world? And Jesus says: “My child, you cannot bear to know now. Trust me, I will tell you as soon as you are able to understand.” The blindness and limitation of the present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall follow in God’s own time. See Rom 8:18; 2Co 4:17.

Zombies or not?

If a person can overdose on drugs, die but be brought back with a simple shot, is it the same person/spirit/soul? How much time does it take for a spirit or soul to leave a body for good? We have to pray for our loved ones because the devil is looking for bodies to fill for his demons. Hence, the drugs in the first place. I believe this is the real term for “Zombies.” They have no house so they use human bodies. I am just wondering if some of the unsaved people who overdose and die, return as they were or are not the same as they were when they died. I believe that the lesson here is “get saved while you can.”

Sometimes an alleged “blessing” could be a secret curse.

An old man in the family once told me, “You can preach, you just ain’t go no suppote” (Southern for support.) 17 years later, (last night) I bound that curse. Never thought of it that way until God whispered it into my spirit. Sometimes what we think is a compliment in a way, can be a years-long curse. Jehovah Jireh is my provider. Amen,

Good Saturday Morning! 4/17/21

God has given us this beautiful Saturday to enjoy and to tell someone about His Son. I wish you well in Jesus name.

We used to sing in bible school “This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Sometimes when you get older you forget things but one thing that we will never forget is to praise and worship our God and Creator. He brought this day to us and kept us safe as we slept. His Angels guarded you and kept you from harm. People may be committing unusual activities outside of our dwellings, our neighborhoods, our communities, but God kept them away from you as your resting body and mind slept. Think of the possibilities that could have happened that didn’t. Those are reasons to give thanks today. Psa 118:24  This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

I was thinking about how time seems to be going faster as days go by. They say that as you get older, days go by faster but I’ve been feeling something different lately. Here are my thoughts:

One day as I was meditating, (not with legs crossed and fingers pointed up of course, that is actually cultish,) I had a vision that the trees were tired and the earth was moaning and groaning. The Earth just couldn’t take anymore abuse. The trees were weaker than they used to be and their color was even weaker than what we are used to. The bark on them was splitting and dry. And some of these trees were new ones. They just couldn’t get nourishment from the Earth anymore. I saw the words in front of me in the air that said, “Tempus Fugit” which is a Latin phrase, usually translated into English as “time flies”.

Although I can’t explain it, time as we knew it is gone. It is speeding by us so quickly. The internet gives you information so much quicker than going to libraries do. I’m sure that we don’t have Encyclopedia salesmen/women anymore. We trust our food to microwaves just because commercials say that they work and give us our food faster. Instead of sending one another lovely cards and notes, we shoot each other a quick email with the signature already on them at the bottom.

As the world turns, and that’s not a soap opera (or is it,) what it has to go through due to the greed and selfishness of lucifer/satan and all of his followers, we need to lean upon the chest of the Lord as the disciple John did, and learn the heartbeat of Jesus. You don’t want to miss what He has planned. I want to be a part of the remnant don’t you? Lean my friends, lean in to Jesus’s heartbeat! Redeem the time. Tell people about Jesus while it is yet still day. Night is coming where people won’t be able to sleep and rest in Jesus. I don’t want to think about those who will be left behind. Just don’t be one of them.

Eph 5:16  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Col 4:5  Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.

God is good and worthy to be praised! Praise Him while you are able.

2Co 4:16  For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

Eph 5:15  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

Eph 5:16  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Eph 5:17  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Eph 5:18  And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

Eph 5:19  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Eph 5:20  Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Eph 5:21  Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

Psa 9:2  I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.

Psa 31:7  I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;

Psa 118:24  This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Isa 25:9  And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be gladand rejoice in his salvation.

Joe 2:23  Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

I lost Jesus.

Good Evening everyone. I feel so guilty right now. I had a beautiful gold and silver cross that I bought at Kohl’s years ago and well, I did something odd and I feel a little strange right now. The cross is pure gold and it is beautiful but….there is a replica of Jesus attached to it. Jesus is silver. Here is the problem, it always bothered me that Jesus hung so sadly on that pretty cross although we all know that He died on it BUT rose from the dead which is the victorious part of all that He did.

Tonight, I decided to take Jesus off of that cross. I dug under the body part and tried to pry it away but the gold began to bend. I got my scissors and ‘clipped’ the hands and feet away and they snapped off somewhat easily. (So glad that they didn’t break His bones on the real cross.) The cross looks nice and I cleaned it up but I lost Jesus! He flew across the room somewhere when I clipped him and I can’t find Him anywhere. I am so glad that we can’t lose our Jesus that easily amen?

Crosses are just a memorization of what He did for us anyway. Jesus is no longer on that ol’ cross. He’s alive in us via the Holy Spirit that He left us. Jesus rose and got victory over sin, hell and death JUST for us. He gave us freedom in Him. Isn’t that wonderful? Praise the Lord and amen! Well, I hope that gave you a little giggle tonight to lighten things up a bit. In times like these, we need a lightening up. Pray that I find my Jesus soon. God bless and thanks for reading.

Good Friday Morning! 4/16/21

Blessing your day with a prayer and another word from the Lord Himself. Reading the Word daily gives one Wisdom and comfort.

Father God thank you for another day. Bless all of our loved ones in our household, our family and friends. Lord we give you all the praise, the honor, and the glory forever. We lift up our prayer requests to you and we cover all of our loved ones with the blood of Jesus. We pray for whichever country that we live in and all countries around the world, that, people will see the love of Jesus Christ and come to You daily. Jesus you are the lily-of-the-valley, the bright and morning star and there’s no one that can ever take your place. Walk with us today and cause your Holy Spirit to teach us something that we didn’t know yesterday. Guide our feet and fill our mouth’s with words of love, joy and wisdom. Send strength and courage to your people for such a time as this. Take away the timidity from all of your children and cause us to be bold as a lion but gentle as a lamb. Just like you were Jesus. We lift up all those who are going through COVID-19 losing loved ones and experiencing it themselves. Cause them all to be over comers healing from this disease and comforting them from the deaths that were caused by this disease. Jesus you said by your stripes we are healed and we’re going to continue to repeat that until you return. You are not a man that you should lie. Lord we believe you. Amen.

1Pe 2:21  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

1Pe 2:22  Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

1Pe 2:23  Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

1Pe 2:24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

1Pe 2:25  For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls. Amen

Walking with the Mayor (dream)

I dreamed last night, a dream that I feel led to post in my blog because many dreams that I have are prophetic. That’s why the devil tries to stop me from deep-sleeping because God speaks to me thorough my dreams.

The “Mayor” or some big representative of the town that I was in was walking with me up a small, grassy hill and we were casually talking. I noticed how we had to dodge the manholes in our paths. The grass was green but there were manholes approximately every 10 feet or so. Some were open, some were closed. I decided to look into one of the manholes and when I did, I remember clearly seeing green walls in this manhole as though it were an opening to a secret cell or a submarine of some sort. It looked as though there was a military type of operation going on. The Mayor said to me, “That’s just the Steel Company.. ” and I can’t remember the name of it. It’s as though it wasn’t God’s time for me to know yet.

Tuesday night/Wednesday morning I dreamed about standing on a small hill that had various mud paths on it. I stood on the mud to show my friend(s) that I was with that all is well, yet I did not fall.

I pray that this is not a precursor to war of somekind where submarines are definitely used or, if a Steel Company of some sort is not in trouble. I know that in Clairton, Pennsylvania, the Steel Works manufacturing company is under much government scrutiny for air pollution. The air stinks horribly at times. Before they began to get cited and fined, the air quality was horrible daily to the point that you couldn’t keep your screen door open. Many have whole house air especially in the Condo’s. The asthma rate is high in Clairton. Someone did a documentary on the air in Clairton that revealed how many people there have asthma or some type of breathing problem.

Pray for the safety of our country, our people and our purpose here in the United States and that’s hopefully freedom of speech and freedom to live in prosperity and good health.

Good Wednesday Morning! 4/14/21

Have faith in God and He will reward you in unimaginable ways. You need faith to be a Christian.

By Faith

Heb 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Heb 11:2  For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Heb 11:3  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Heb 11:4  By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

Heb 11:5  By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

Heb 11:6  But without faith it is impossible to please him:for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Heb 11:7  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Heb 11:8  By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

Heb 11:9  By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

Heb 11:10  For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Heb 11:11  Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

Heb 11:12  Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

Heb 11:13  These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

Heb 11:14  For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

Heb 11:15  And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.

Heb 11:16  But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Heb 11:17  By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

Heb 11:18  Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

Heb 11:19  Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

Heb 11:20  By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

Heb 11:21  By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaningupon the top of his staff.

Heb 11:22  By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

Heb 11:23  By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he wasa proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.

Heb 11:24  By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

Heb 11:25  Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

Heb 11:26  Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

Heb 11:27  By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

Heb 11:28  Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

Heb 11:29  By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

Heb 11:30  By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

Heb 11:31  By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

Heb 11:32  And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

Heb 11:33  Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

Heb 11:34  Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

Heb 11:35  Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

Heb 11:36  And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

Heb 11:37  They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

Heb 11:38  (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

Heb 11:39  And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

Heb 11:40  God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

The Storm at Sea
Act 27:13  And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, loosing thence, they sailed close by Crete.
Act 27:14  But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.
Act 27:15  And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up into the wind, we let her drive.
Act 27:16  And running under a certain island which is called Clauda, we had much work to come by the boat:
Act 27:17  Which when they had taken up, they used helps, undergirding the ship; and, fearing lest they should fall into the quicksands, strake sail, and so were driven.
Act 27:18  And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next day they lightened the ship;
Act 27:19  And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship.
Act 27:20  And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.
Act 27:21  But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.
Act 27:22  And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man’s life among you, but of the ship.
Act 27:23  For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,
Act 27:24  Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.
Act 27:25  Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.
Act 27:26  Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island.
Act 27:27  But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country;
Act 27:28  And sounded, and found it twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found it fifteen fathoms.
Act 27:29  Then fearing lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day.
Act 27:30  And as the shipmen were about to flee out of the ship, when they had let down the boat into the sea, under colour as though they would have cast anchors out of the foreship,
Act 27:31  Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, Except these abide in the ship, ye cannot be saved.
Act 27:32  Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat, and let her fall off.
Act 27:33  And while the day was coming on, Paul besought them all to take meat, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting, having taken nothing.
Act 27:34  Wherefore I pray you to take some meat: for this is for your health: for there shall not an hair fall from the head of any of you.
Act 27:35  And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to God in presence of them all: and when he had broken it, he began to eat.
Act 27:36  Then were they all of good cheer, and they also took some meat.
Act 27:37  And we were in all in the ship two hundred threescore and sixteen souls.
Act 27:38  And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, and cast out the wheat into the sea.
The Shipwreck
Act 27:39  And when it was day, they knew not the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore, into the which they were minded, if it were possible, to thrust in the ship.
Act 27:40  And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves unto the sea, and loosed the rudder bands, and hoised up the mainsail to the wind, and made toward shore.
Act 27:41  And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained unmoveable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves.
Act 27:42  And the soldiers’ counsel was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape.
Act 27:43  But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they which could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land:
Act 27:44  And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.


Acts 27:35-44
SAVING PAUL SAVED THEM ALL
The sailors endeavored to head the vessel toward the mouth of a creek that appeared before them, but she ran aground and stuck fast. It was here that a new and unexpected peril confronted Paul and his fellow-prisoners. The soldiers proposed to kill them, lest they should swim ashore and escape; but the centurion, perhaps out of gratitude to the man to whom they all owed their lives, forbade the soldiers and ordered everyone to endeavor somehow to get to land.
It does not so much matter how we get to heaven, as that we get there. Some who trust most in ritual and ceremonies may get there on broken pieces of the ship, but happier are they who can cast themselves directly upon the mercy of God in Jesus Christ. It was a drenched and shivering group that stood on the shore on that chill November day. Thank God, our condition will be very different when we emerge on the shore of eternity after crossing the cold waters. And as we stand on the beach of the glassy sea, all of us will render praise to Him who has brought us safe home.

The Power of two. (Written version.)

Precious Lord we thank you for this day. You are outstanding and you are lovely to us. Thank you for waking us up this morning and giving us your rest in your peace. We pray for all of those in the world who have souls in which the enemy maybe interested. Open they’re eyes so that they can see, exactly what this entire existence is about. It Is about the wrestling of their souls. It is about a God man who died on the cross to deliver them from sin Hell and death. And it is about gaining victory over anything that tries to stop us from not making it to heaven and be at rest. We know you didn’t intend for the world to be the way it is now. We will fight our battles with our eyes wide open until we reach that sweet by and by. Until then we will celebrate the Heaven inside of us and thank you for being here and helping us through all of these battles. We are victorious in Jesus name. We lift up all the prayer requests received and we give them to you as you sit on your throne in Jesus name. We pray for comfort of the mothers and fathers who lost her children. We pray for the lonely who wish they had a mate. We pray for relationships that lead restoration. We pray for the poor who only want a dollar or two to get something to eat or drink. Cause us to be help to those who need it Lord in Jesus name. Use me Holy Spirit as you usually do. Use me to deliver this word and give someone hope. Cause something that I say today jump into someone’s heart and remove the scales. I am so honored to preach your word God there’re no words. I am so honored to be a part of your kingdom, it is a lovely place to be physically and spiritually, mentally and emotionally. We in the father are one. By Jesus stripes we are healed. We are the righteousness of God. We already won the battle. I covered everyone with the blood of Jesus Christ right now by the sound of my voice.
Baruch Atah Hashem Adonai. Blessed is he who cometh in the name of the Lord.
In Jesus name amen.


Praise the Lord for his worthy to be praised everyone! I hope everybody is doing fine today. I prayed to God is blessing you in every way possible and that you are receiving it in every way possible amen? The last time we were together it was Resurrection Sunday which some people call Easter, and I was discussing the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ which is sort of where I will pickup today. It is so important what he did for us on the cross. People get into the food, the children, the relatives coming over to eat, which movie they will watch that evening which is usually the 10 Commandments, but what we need to get into more is the purpose that Jesus did what he did. Lucifer broke protocol with the father son and Holy Spirit tried to start his own business which failed, so he decided to try to get God back by attacking his creation. Adam and Eve were newly created, innocent, and enjoying their lives with God as well as walking with him in the cool of the day. Just the same way as we do today. You’re walking along enjoying your life, thinking of good things (hopefully,) just doing your daily chores day by day, smiling, loving, encouraging people, and along comes trouble. Just when you thought you had a little fresh air something pops in unexpectedly and turns your world upside down. You know that you didn’t do anything to deserve that. 99% of the time you didn’t. 99% of the time it is because you’re about to get blessed by your father above and the enemy knows it but he just can’t put his finger on it. If the devil realizes the move of God shouldn’t God’s children realize that ahead of time, before him? And make one wonder how the enemy begins to work on us because of a blessing coming our way and we can’t even see the blessing coming. Could it be that we’re not spending enough time with our father? Could it be that we’re using religious, short, thin, barely-get-by prayers? Could it be that we think we’re covered and we have it all in a bag when the bag just may have a hole in it? James 1:17 says that the Father of lights is the giver of gifts. Yes he gives gifts but he also wants us to appreciate them as well. The biggest gift he ever gave us is giving us his son to die on the cross to Save us from the enemy, and from sin, Hell and death when he could’ve actually destroyed us all started all over. You want to talk about Grace? Love doesn’t kill. Love rejuvenates and strengthens.

I would like to start from John chapter 20. Verse 12. This is when Mary Magdalene went to go see Jesus at the sepulchre and his body was gone. She began to weep in verse 13. The angel asked her why she was crying and she said they took her Lords body away. She wanted to privately pay respects to Jesus’s body. After she spoke to the angel she turned around and saw Jesus standing there but she didn’t know that it was him. This reminds me of the verse in the Bible that says be careful who you entertain because sometimes you can entertain angels unaware(s). Jesus was with her and she didn’t even know who he was. How many times can Jesus be with us and we don’t even know that it’s him? That man asking you for five dollars to get a meal at McDonald’s could be the Lord. Hebrew scholars also say that King Melchizadek is a type of Christ or as scholars call him a “preincarnate Christ.” as well who showed up to Abraham. There are many times in the Bible where people showed up in could be type of Christ there. They say that Jacob wrestled with God that’s why his hip was placed out of socket. Our arms are too short to box with God. He walked around with a limp but he walked around blessed. Some of you have wrestled with God and you may have a limp but you are blessed. I say limp on my friends because by Jesus stripes you have already been healed. If Jesus can heal bodies, grow new hair and teeth in people, cause the didn’t come back to life, cause miraculous weight loss, and heal cancer and other diseases, you can surely heal your limp.

There’s a difference in being with Jesus and knowing Jesus. The word “know” is a very important word. Genesis chapter 4 verse one says Adam knew Eve his wife and she conceived and bared Cain. And then she said I’ve gotten a man from the Lord. And in verse two she again bear his brother able making them possibly twins. Yes, according to God’s word Cain and Abel were twins. If you noticed she conceived once and bared twice. Anytime a woman conceived once & bears twice she has had a set of twins.

Sometimes in the Bible the word “know” or “knew” is used for, simply, sex. In the Strong’s concordance the word knew or know is under 3045 which would be the Hebrew dictionary and looking at 3045 we see yada YADA. Oh! This can be laughed at if you look at it in a comical type of way. I’m sure you’ve heard the Jewish term, “yada yada yada” no? In this case it doesn’t mean “sex sex sex” it means recognition, surety, acquaintance, kinsman. After Adam and Eve’s fall I’m sure that having sex wasn’t as beautiful and enjoyable as God had first intended. As they say God only knows what was really supposed to be like. I’m sorry I have to giggle a little on that one but when you think about it, it could be true, you never know how he meant for to be. This is the same as a relationship with the Lord. Do you know him, as in having an intimate relationship with him, or do you know of him? Jesus calls us his wife (Bride) he doesn’t call us his girlfriend okay?

Noticing John chapter 20 verse 16 there is a key there that we need to know today. Mary did not know who Jesus was until he called her name. It’s says Jesus is unto her “Mary” and then she turned herself and said to him “Rabboni” which is to say “master.” Oh how wonderful life is once Jesus calls your name. That was actually Mary’s calling. Is God calling you? Are you getting the signs? Are you even noticing the signs? God doesn’t call special people he calls whoever he wants to call. I am certainly not special but he called me. Him calling me make me special to him. He took me out of the world and showed himself to me in ways unimaginable. He can do the same for you. Jesus told her not to touch him yet because he had yet to ascend to his father. It was against Jewish customs for someone to touch a dead body. But in this case Jesus was risen yet He still didn’t want her to touch his old body until he received his new body from the father. Although Jesus came to make the Law better he still didn’t disrespect or break the law. I am very sure that Mary did not see a strip-ed, stripped Jesus. Think about it. The centurions that they had him but Jesus as He is well known for doing, even healed himself.

The rich man wrapped a package of hamburger, and Jesus came back with healed flesh. I believe that there was so much anointing on those cloths that they wrapped Jesus in, that they helped to heal his body for when he arose from the dead. Folks can try to kill your flesh but they can’t kill the anointing! Amen? A prostitute and a rich man prepared Jesus for his burial. One anointed his body with expensive spikenard and the other was a rich person who prepared his body for the grave knowing that it (He), one day, will rise, just as Jesus had promised. All rich people do not worship their money. And yes they can be believers. I wish that we could hear the prayer of the rich man as he wrapped Jesus’s body. He followed Jesus and he was a disciple so I’m sure his prayer was outstanding. Joseph of Arimathea, the rich man, was not an undertaker, he and overcomer.

It is so beautiful how Jesus announces his ascension to a woman and tells her to go tell the men about it. She went and testified to them about it. It’s safe to say she obeyed Christ. Verse 19 tells us that the men were shut in with the doors locked for fear of the Jews. After everything that they saw they still experienced fear. See you can serve God and still be a man pleaser. We have to search ourselves on the inside to see if we totally believe in God’s Word or if there’s anything of man that we accept over God’s word. Everyone who says they believe don’t totally believe hundred percent. There’re many Christians walking around with doubt. I believe many will sellout to stop they’re beheading if it came down to it. This is where they would go into the “me me me’s” and “I I I’s,” questioning themselves saying “How long will the pain last if they behead me?” Some will turn from the faith in a heartbeat. As I always say John 666.

Right in middle of our fears Jesus will show up just as he did the disciples in this case. In verse 19 he showed up when the doors were shut which means nothing natural can stop him from showing up. Jesus walked through man-made material to get to those and he loves. He either walked through or teleported as some may call it. To teleport is to transport or be transported across space and distance instantly. Although we know he has the power to do that He still took care of us by leaving us the Holy Spirit was always with us. Now we have the power to do those things. Jesus loves to share to the obedient. While the men had the doors shut they were missing out on the divine opportunity to witness to others. If any of you out there are like me, you could be a bit introverted. I have been known to be shy all of my life. I always only had certain friends to hang around with. And it was always the underdogs. I never really fit in with the big guys and I didn’t care. I even got teased about my friends. I had loved ones say “who’s that one friend you have up with the buck teeth?” Or, “what’s your friends name that never closes her coat?” Or, “what’s the girls name with the big lips again?” Or “You know what I mean! That big one!” I didn’t begin to speak much until God called me into the ministry. I even had a man one time tell me that he was surprised I said hello to him because I thought I was too cute to speak to anyone. And it shocked me. Sometimes the people that you think are trying to be cute just maybe introverted. Christians we have to give each other some slack. And we have to judge righteously or we can ruin someone’s life or cause someone to take their own lives. And we have to be careful not to judge somebody by what we hear of them. There have been families and entire entities that have ruined peoples lives by scuttlebutt (gossip) and it is very damaging to people. People always tend to believe the numbers. If there’re more of there are of you most likely won’t win. Not with them (those of the world), anyway so there’s no sense in trying.

The first thing Jesus did when he showed up was to wish them Peace. Jehovah shalom = God our peace. Jesus/Yeshua = Prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6), Melchizadek = King of peace. That’s what we are to be keepers of peace. That doesn’t mean to let everybody have their way just to keep the peace. That means to guard your environment with the truth because the truth is peace, well, sometimes, it also wages war against the Hell that may dwell in your immediate area or your life in various ways. In days And times like today there is a war waging against Christians and we need to always tell the truth no matter how hard it seems. If it makes you look bad tell the truth. That’s what the devil’s been working on lately – trying to make Gods people look bad. Devils are trying to make themselves look innocent these days just so we can look bad. But the truth always comes out in the wash. Sometimes it seems like the God-in-you has to embarrass folks to make them shut up and leave you alone. And sometimes God just has to show people just how ignorant they’ve been to make them behave themselves. See, when the devil thinks that no one else can see what he’s doing to you he loves it, but when God reveals it and brings it out into the open for all to see he’s sick about it and so are the people he’s using. As I always say just practice patience and the God do the work. You will be glad in the end. Don’t you just love it how God snatches the sheets and covers off of evil people? Just when the devil thinks his game is working God changes the rules to your benefit. It’s God’s way or no way.

In John chapter 20 verse 22 Jesus leaves us all the Holy Spirit. He breathed upon them and they received. I pray that we all learn to receive gifts from the Lord. Some people try to act like they have a hard time receiving I was one of them, but when it comes to gifts from the Lord we need to learn how to receive from him. He will never give us anything we couldn’t handle. God knows exactly what you need. I feel like there’s some people out there right now where God has sent you small gifts and you ignored them or you didn’t like them because they was too small for you or not exactly what you asked for. As though they weren’t good enough. That is not a good thing. God is the God of more-than-enough and when he thinks that you deserve something bigger he’ll give it to you. You can ask God for brand-new car and you don’t even keep the old one that you have now, clean. Why would God give you a fresh, new Lincoln and you can’t even keep the old Chevy clean? Why would he give you new house when you can’t even wash the dishes in your old one? Okay let’s get real here. Forgive me if this sounds harsh but, why would got answer some of your prayers and you won’t even use his Holy Spirit that he’s given you for free!? If you would use the Holy Spirit by having a conversation with him, talking in his language, allowing him to use your language, you would get some of the answers you’ve been asking God. People say I never spoke in tongues and Some people say they’re not even interested but What they don’t realize is half of their answers is in the tongues. Why else would Jesus breathe upon the disciples and give them cloven tongues? “Cloven” means to have double languages. You my friend actually have two languages. Are you using them? Let’s take a look at the work cloven: it means split or divided into. What else do you know is split or divided into?

Heb 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
The Bible is the word of God and your tongues is the word of God as well, in a language that the devil cannot understand. You see the Devil knows the word sometimes better than us, but he doesn’t know your tongue. It seems lately that Christians are always complaining about people’s tongues neglecting to share the fact that, there is a blessing in having a spiritual tongue. They’re so busy telling people to shut up that people are afraid to talk to God. I’ve seen so many instances where peoples hopes and dreams were dashed because they testified about their lives and others harassed them about their own testimony. That is nothing but the devils work. If you believe that Jesus has you covered what would you worry about? Our voices matter. Be careful because the devil will stop you from testifying about the goodness of the Lord. People will harass you to death but they don’t want you to talk about them or tell anyone. That’s why people keep trying to tell preachers to “shut up” they are afraid that they might read or hear something about themselves. No one else is supposed to know what they do or have done, but you! Insiders secret right? James 4:3 tells us “Ye ask and receive not because you asked amiss that you may consume it upon your lusts.” Some people aren’t getting what they want because they’re asking God in the wrong way. I have news for everybody…. The Holy Ghost knows exactly how to talk to God! Do you trust God, and you trust Jesus, but you don’t trust the Holy Ghost? The Holy Ghost is a gift from Jesus. What was I saying earlier but people can’t receive?God is a triune God you can’t leave one out. Actually that would be worshiping a cloven God. That would not be true word at all.

Our cloven tongue is quick, powerful, and sharp, more than a two edged sword that pierces the soul and spirit, the joint and marrow, giving us strong discernment of the intents of the hearts of others. In two by two you have power over unclean spirits
Mar 6:7  And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

The power of two is very strong. You get witness with the power of two. Mat 18:16  But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

You can’t even accuse an elder without two witnesses: 1Ti 5:19  Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

When Jesus gave us the Holy Ghost he gave us the church’s authority. He said in John 20:23 that whoever’s sins you remit they are remitted unto them. That means if you forgive someone sins they’re forgiven. And it also says that if you retain someone sins they are retained. (Remit means to cancel, refrain from, or set-aside. Retain means to keep possession of, to keep a hold of.) That is the authority that Jesus has giving you. If he told us to pray for enemies how can we retain someone sins? That’s something to think of.
Let us walk in peace with one another. Do not hold your tongue when it comes to telling somebody about the love of Jesus Christ or what He has done for you. Only the antichrist would make you stop. If God says what you’re doing is okay how can man tell you that you’re not? Whose report will you believe? I believe the report of the Lord.

Are you saved? Now is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. With all that is going on around the world, you need a friend. Jesus can be that special friend if you allow Him into your life. He is your helper and His Holy Spirit is your Comforter.
If you are not saved, just repeat the Romans Road after me: Say “Jesus, I repent of my sins, I am so sorry Lord. I believe that you died on the cross and rose 3 days later from the dead, just for me and I accept what you have done, I accept you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus, amen.” Now go find a bible believing, Holy Ghost filled church and learn of Him, it’s never too late. Your new life starts now. All old things are gone away. God throws them as far as the East if from the West. Now….go live, laugh and love! 

Num 6:24  The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25  The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26  The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Thank you for coming on today and I pray that your week goes by Victoriously! 
Rev Essie signing off! God bless and have a great day!
