A Message to the Deeply Rooted:

Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ Matthew 7:23

When your relationship with God is one-sided where you only seek Him for His benefits, beware!

It’s a slight yet most dangerous sin to crossover from worshipping God for who He is versus for what He has.

You could be anointed as the above followers were and able to perform miracles, yet still find yourself in hell.

Their sin was a sin of spiritual idolatry, where they were doing the work of the Lord whilst neglecting their intimacy and relationship with Him.

They forgot their First Love.

Is your ministry causing you to compromise your sacred times with the Lord? If so, take heed.

God gave me the key to ensure we don’t make this grave error – where we do mighty exploits for the Lord only to be banished from His presence.

The Ultimate Key is Humility.

Tune into the next few messages in the coming days as we delve into Humility; one of the major keys for us as Christians.


Question of Great Importance

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?
Matthew 16:26

Is it one more party? One more carnival season?

Is it worth one more day for immoral sex?

What is worth the risk of losing heaven for the purpose of gaining hell?

Is sin so great, so fulfilling and so good that you choose to risk today for a possible eternal suffering and sorrow tomorrow?

Is there a dollar value that will make hell worth the remorse and extremities that you will have to endure?

What has sin offered you that God, Himself couldn’t give you along with His promise of Heaven?

Is there a person, event, place or thing worth the value of your soul and the unbearable weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth?

The laws of life and probability dictate that each of us will all live our last day on earth.

Today, is the last day for at least 150,000 people world-wide.

Is it that you’re hoping that just before you die you’ll have the opportunity to give your life to the Lord.

Is that a risk that you are surely willing to take?

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions.

In other words, there are a lot of people in hell now that intended to give God their lives but, it was cut short before they could.

Risk not an eternity of suffering, for sin that was never fulfilling.

Rather, use plain logic and understand that serving Jesus is not only the most beneficial to life on earth, but also, eternity. 

Competing Powers

In a world built on the need to be the best, the first, to be seen, to be known, to be liked and to be followed; the war of competing powers is one never to be engaged in, but simply ignored.

This ‘driven’ world is built on man-made, human-defined success that proves false, lacking and short-lived. As we assess the lives of the rich and the famous, we easily realize how much so many of them fail on even coming even close to achieving peace, security, deep-rooted happiness, lasting joy and true success.

Rather, we hear of sex scandals, DUI’s, drug-abuse, suicides, questionable deaths along with their being plagued by paparazzis, who withhold our basic desire for privacy. Yet, so many people rush in for the deception of wealth and fame, not knowing the ask that it requires is one that very few are truly willing to pay.

The most unfortunate thing is for the one’s who have paid the ultimate price and sacrificed what was necessary to get what they so needed from life and still find themselves wanting.

Man has no greater need for God, yet what he wants and hungers for is disguised in the glitter of this world. The sooner we realized this, the sooner we can resign from competing for attention, and recognize that we always had His attention.

He was always there. The God of the farthest galaxies and widest expanses is indelibly, indefinitely, passionately, unconditionally in love with you and that’s all that matters. No need to vie for the world when God the Creator of All desires to not only care for you but wants for to be with Him in Heaven.

Submit to Him today and allow His love to transform your life.

Faith & Feeling

Feeling relies on sensuality based on the things that are tangible whilst faith is founded on sensitivity and the knowledge of God’s Word.

¤ One relies on worldly knowledge, the other on divine knowledge.

¤ One relies on the flesh for leadership the other, on the Holy Spirit.

¤ On builds self, through self-satisfaction, self-gratification and all things self-centered. The other nourishes the spirit where God alone is glorified, flesh is crucified and service too all men is core.

¤ One leads to certain damnation as it is hostile towards the things of God whilst the other is assured of life in all its abundance as it utterly surrendered to Jesus Christ.

¤ One has an appetite that can never be filled. The rich are hell-bent on getting richer. The party-goer is always seeking the next party. He that is high is always seeking a higher high. None ever find what they are looking for.

The other has an unquenchable thirst for the fullness of God. Pouring yourself into others only leaves you empty and in need of a refill. Being filled, only makes you more thirsty. Being emptied, gives you an increase in the capacity in which you are filled.

I’ve done both, being filled with sin only left me more miserable, fearful and powerless as before. Being filled with God’s fullness is exhilarating each waking moment. You finally found the peace and long-term happiness (which is joy) that you were looking for. You not only gained liberty over your life along with the peace and the joy, but Jesus also gave us POWER. Enormous, supreme, world-changing power.

Leave the dark-side and come over to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. You will never be the same again!

Do You Have Insurance?

There are an average of 4 births per day for every second, which equals to about 360,000 new lives daily. Conversely, there are 2 deaths for every second, amounting to 151, 600 lives lost world-wide.

¤ Life and death are at work each day.
¤ On the question of death it’s not a matter of if, or how, but when.
¤ As a child is birthed the countdown clock to our unknown end begins.

The above statements are reflective of a reality that we cannot escape. There are no evasive maneuvers or actions that can lengthen, prolong or foil the specific time that death comes knocking. In fact, it’s more of a kicking down of the door than a knock, if we are being blunt. It comes for all, ready or not, man, woman or child, good or bad, rich or poor, black or white and most times, when we least expect it.

The worst part of all of this is that most times there is no warning signal, just another day. Maybe you hear another person speaking about Jesus. Possibly you were challenged by a loved one to make things right with God, all in the middle of a busy day. Or perhaps, there was none of that, and death just comes.

We constantly are reminded of life and it’s fragility and in love, I also seek to warn you of eternity and it’s severity. The fragility of life must be weighed against the extreme severity of eternity. A gamble with your life’s wealth may see you rebounding some years after, but a gamble on Jesus has no re-corrective measures.

We seek insurance for this life? I better implore you to find assurance for the next. If God, Jesus, Satan, Heaven and Hell didn’t exist, then we all go to some random abyss or just die in the end. Christians may have been wrong but in the end nobody really loses. However, if we are right, and God did really send His only begotten Son for us, and we rejected? We would know the bed we would have eternally made.

7 Life Building Declarations for Christians

:::::Declare these 7 verses aloud
:::::::::3 times for each verse (at least)
:::::::::::::For 7 days (or until you say STOP)

Words by themselves have power. The Words from God has godly power, that is; supernatural power. As such, I want you to join me for the next 7 days as we speak the Word of God over our lives.

2 Corinthians 10:5
I take captive of every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Psalms 139:14
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Romans 8:37
In all these things I am more than a conqueror through Christ who loved me.

1 John 4:4
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Proverbs 18:21
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

Job 22:28
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

Manifested Love

Love cannot be proven in word but manifested in deeds,
Perfect love casts out all fear, we are now free and free indeed.
The love we are called to freely give is from the love we have freely received,
If we love Him let’s obey Him – seek the lost and save the weak.

The harvest is ready but He said the workers are also few,
The world is so busy working while the Church seems out of view.
We have gotten so busy doing church things, whilst evangelism is refused.
We are like spiritually obese Christians filled with all ‘word’ and never being used.

How can we have Christ within but never seek or save the lost?
How can we go to Church every weekend, but still struggle with the lust?
How can we have God who is love yet reaching out to sinners bring disgust?
How can a whole year can pass and we haven’t told one person of Jesus, His love and death on a cross for us?

Are we truly saved? Are we certain? Are we sure?
Maybe we should be ministering to each other and start to witness to our core.
Love accompanied with no action is only deception laid in store,
Many are called yet the chosen few, it’s the obedient that God looks for.

So I urge you my brother, my sister my friend,
Awaken from your slumber and be a witness of God’s love to the world’s end.
Let His love drive you to fulfilling your purpose and leading as much to heaven,
Seek every opportunity to show forth His love everyday, week, hour and second.

The life you save today maybe the one who saves a thousand tomorrow,
The life you ignore on the bus today may suffer for eternity in sorrow.
It is for this reason I implore you to move like your next minute is borrowed,
Leave nothing for later but do all that you can this very hour.

Guilty As Charged!!!

In Jamaica, when you are stopped by the police; let’s say, for speeding – you may get ticketed. The offence will be noted by the officer along with yourself, in which you will have to pay a fine for your
offence of driving over the required speed limit.

You have two options at this point:
1. To pay the ticket and be done with the matter, or
2. Not pay the ticket and challenge the charge in a court of law.

This is the same scenario that we are all in today. The Bible charges us by saying that, “We are born in sin and shaped in iniquity” (Psalm 51:5). It also states that no matter how we try to good deeds, “all our righteous acts are like filthy rags” (Is. 64:6). As such, we are not able to settle the charges levied against us by a Holy God, by working in our own strength.

This, therefor; is the breakdown:
1. We are charged with being sinners and in danger of judgement and hell fire.
2. The fine was to live holy and righteously.
3. We are unable to live sinless lives due to our sinful nature.
4. Jesus, the Lamb of God lived a sinless life and as a result, paid the fine for us.
5. In order to be free of all charges, we need to first of accept His pardon of forgiveness thus saving ourselves from the having to face the Court of law which is Judgement Day.
6. We now must pursue a life of holiness and righteousness, adhering to the teaching in His Word.

So the questions are:
Have you been charged with living sinfully?
Have you accepted Jesus’ payment of His life for you that you may be free from the power of sin, death and the grave?
If you have not yet been cleared of these charges, what are you waiting on? Or rather, on what have your time been wasted on?
If you have accepted Jesus’ sacrifice for you, how has it been now that you are a child of the Most High?

Who’s Your God?

As the sun rises to shine and moon gives light at night;
So I ponder, of what purpose have I?
As the trees produce fruit and ground blossoms life;
So I meditate on my being born in this time.
As that which is sown can be reaped and that which is given is received;
So I wonder on what function was given to me.
The sun, moon, trees and grounds knows their place, purpose and be;
Yet, I stand negligent of God’s need to glorify Himself through my being.

All the created things were made to bring glory to the Eternal Supreme Being;
From the waving grass on ground to the roaring seas.
All of creation sees the evidence of Your presence, yet some refuse to see –
The detail, the splendor and wonder in all the created things and Your Majesty.
So I, a minute creature in time and in Your hand I bring –
Only glory well deserved to you and this and more you deserve as KING of Kings.
If I had lived every day, from my birth to death with total obedience; a life without sin –
It would only be an insignificant fraction of the love that You have given.

Today, we seek the glory and approval as likes, follows, subscribers and more;
You made us in Your image and in our image we re-made You for sure.
We redesigned a religion that allows us to feel like we are saved;
So that we may feel free of guilt, as our conscience is enslaved.
We seek to gain glory from our fans, friends and all we depict fame, success, power;
Yet, in a fleeting moment all gained shall be lost when it’s our chosen hour.
And a life which was made to glorify our King Jesus was spent every moment honoring himself;
Then face the judgement and answer as to what they did with time – man’s true wealth.

Of a million likes, views, dollars or whatsoever measure of success you use;
Living for God’s glory is true success; be not fooled or confused!
Any glory gained from living outside of Jesus Christ,
Will only be destroyed at the cost paying an unfathomable price.
We may have lived the perfect life among men and garnered all their praise;
The soul that sins shall die and perish in hell for countless days.
Then we may ask, “For what purpose did I pursue this that life I lived?”
And be left only with the answer that you made yourself to be your god; your King.
