A Call to Arms

Many of us have been running from the fight as long as we can remember, in hopes that we would never have to face that battle ever again. Many of us have become cunning, and adapted to methods and schemes of evasive action for the purposes of escaping challenges and battles that must be won and difficulties that must be faced.

It’s ok for you to think that that these measures may work, because the truth is, they have for a while. Haven’t they? There are conversations we need to have, but we compromise internally and say to ourselves, “It’s not my place, it’s none on my business. Let it slide.” There are addictions we need to break, but we say “I’ll be good, things are okay. Life goes on.” There are devils we need to face, but we cloud it in, “Oh God’s not real, if He did then…”

The truth is this, there will come a fight for each and every one of us and it won’t matter your age, gender, status or belief. There is a common enemy of man that has been deriding your efforts at success, eroding your dreams of a good marriage, suffocating your desires to be the person God has called you to be.

There is a FIGHT!!! There is a fight; and it has to be fought or I guarantee you upon the solid basis of scripture that you will not only lose, you not only will die, but you will be destroyed! When the Bible asked us to fight the good fight of faith, God knew the devil was going to attack your belief system in yourself, in your neighbor and in Him.  There is a fight, and that fight must be won, for the eternal destiny of a nation, your loved ones, your family and yourself.

Let he who is running, run no more! Let he who is sleeping, awake! Let he who is fearful, take up their weapon of war! FIGHT!!!! Fight for your life; because, as it says in the statement, your life depends on it!!!!

Consistently Focused

Two men are trying to cut down a tree for themselves respectively. The first man applies the axe to his tree a thousand times and yet, the tree remained standing. The second man, only swings one hundred times and yet his tree, a tad bit wider than the first, fell to the ground. The difference between the two men was that the first one swung randomly hitting any and everywhere that he could, whilst the second one made every to apply each consecutive swing to the same spot.

Such is the power of focus and consistency. Even the biggest giants will fall when you are properly focused and consistent in prayer, obedience, praise etc. The reason why so many Christians are ineffective comes down to those two points; lack of focus and consistency. One may have focus but without consistency, focus is futile. Whilst consistency without focus is self-defeating.

My encouragement to us today is to gain insight and grace from the Holy Spirit in battling the core issues within our lives that have been eroding our success and purpose. Let us find the areas where we are weakest and apply consistent focus and see the power of God manifested in magnificent ways.

 

A Most Catastrophic Calamitous Eternal Destruction

Anyone who knows me, know of my love of video games. I had to previously break my addiction to Call of Duty, a game that I have spent hundreds of hours playing over the years. The pros at this game focus on three main objectives: kill-death ratio, win-loss ratio and score per minute. Some give priority to one over the other two, but my definition of the best player, was one who was complete in all categories.

Life, like Call of Duty may also be measured in similar ways. One should focus on Biblical objectives such as, how much people we minister to (encourage, evangelize, pray for etc) on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Of those ministered to, one may need to document how much of those have become Christians, ensure they are getting involved with a church and so forth. It’s shocking how many of us call ourselves children of God, yet we never tell a soul about Jesus and what He has done for us.

We may also need to value our lifestyles, our habits, actions, decisions and weigh the value of them all against eternity. It’s surprising how caught up we are in daily activities all of which have nothing to do with our God-given purpose, talents or gifts. Our lives are so cumbersome that it doesn’t allow us time or energy to do the things that God has called us to do. The poor, the hungry, the rejected, the widow, the fatherless, the homeless, the prisoners; these are they who God has called us to reach out to, not just to our friends and acquaintances within our mutually benefiting social network.

The numbers tell a different story more than our mouths may speak and our minds may think. Jesus said it best, “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me” Matthew 15:8. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” Proverbs 14:12. Many of us have silenced our conscience in an effort to sin comfortably and whilst even ‘Christians’ do the same to live a life free of the responsibility of following God’s Word, judgement and death looms more deadly and destructive than the most catastrophic disaster one could ever imagine.

The greatest shock will come to those who so convinced themselves they were saved, knowing in the depths of their souls they truly weren’t. Deceive not yourself one more day, my brothers and my sisters. Make it right before our Almighty King, Jesus; the KING of Kings and LORD of Lords.

Death is not a question of IF but WHEN.

The Key to Endless Victory

When Jesus’ work was finished, it was a truly finished work. He covered all the bases and your eternal victory was one of them. When we become Christians, the battle seems not gets a lot harder. Our enemy along with our flesh, tempts us and yearns for things that we have become dead to even wanting or desiring. The key to maintaining victory is in one place, the mind.

This is the battlefield where many future leaders will be established and where many potential world changers will fail and be utterly destroyed. The mind, the place where thoughts are seeds implanted seemingly harmlessly, but grows to become some of the biggest trees. The mind, the factory where sins are produced and the home where righteous men are triumphant. The mind, the place where God and the devil seek supremacy amongst men.

What thoughts do you allow to enter into your mind?
Which ones to you ignore and which ones do you meditate upon?

Proverbs 23:7 – For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.

“He who who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right” – Confucius.

I encourage you to pray this simple prayer Today and gain endless victory over your mind:

Prayer:
LORD JESUS, I take captive of every thought to make it obedient to You. I decree that I have the mind of Christ which is life and peace and it will forever be stayed upon You. I cover my body, mind and spirit under Your Blood now and forevermore, in Jesus’ Name. AMEN!!!!

Cancer Healed!!!

One of the greatest desires of God is to have the Word become flesh in our lives. He wants words on paper to manifest victory into reality by faith. For example, the Lord says, “If anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them”Mark 11:23. As a result of reading this passage, I began speaking to my football injuries, headaches, symptoms of sicknesses and negative thoughts. I would say (which also means to declare), “Be healed in Jesus Name” or “Satan, the Blood of Jesus is against you” and I would be totally be healed and delivered.

When this happens, the words in the Bible become engrafted into our life as a living experience or testimony. Revelations 12:11 states, “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” The Lord wants us to exercise our faith much as we exercise in the gym – by starting at a manageable weight and then moving up gradually.

The Lord healed me some years ago from an unknown condition which I suffered through for 9 months. I was told there was no cure or treatment for my condition because they didn’t know what it was. Nevertheless, God healed me miraculously after a 3-day fast. He showed me 3 sins that I had committed, even though at this point, I was on fire for God, that caused this to happen to me. After I repented from each sin, I was immediately healed. I then shared the testimony with a lady who had stage 4 leukemia and was on the verge of death. I said to her these exact words, “Hi, you see me standing here, I have just been healed from an unknown condition that I had suffered through for 9 months. You might have prayed and felt like God is not able to answer your prayer. It just means that something is blocking you from receiving your healing. You’re not going anywhere or doing anything, ask Him to show you and when He does repent from it and you will be totally healed.” That’s all I said. When I went back to the hospital two weeks after, I had seen the same nurse and asked her about the status of the patient, and she jumped and exclaimed, “She got healed and gone home!!!” Praise Be to God👐🙌🙏!!!

GOD IS ALIVE TODAY MORE THAN EVER. TRUST IN HIM AND HIS WORD. LET HIS WORD BECOME YOUR REALITY AND NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU!!!

This is WAR!!!

This is the word of the Lord for the church – militant, the man of God – utterly surrender; the Daughter of Zion – righteously emboldened. “Harken to the voice of the Lord, ‘Thou art My battle-axe and weapons of war!’ Now, prepare for war and take back this nation, ‘Jamaica, Land We Love’ for the Lord.”

2 Corinthians 10:4
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Know Your Enemy

Daily Dosage
Friday, July 14, 2017

Last night I spent about an hour tearing the tint off of the back glass in the my car, as it had started stripping. The Lord began asked if I had realized how much brighter the car had gotten as I got closer to completion. It was amazing, because even though it was at night the car had definitely gotten so much brighter, by removing the veil; I’m sorry the tint😉.

The Lord revealed to me just how the enemy uses tint (a veil, mind-blinding spirits) just like a pair of sunglasses, to prevent those who are in a sinful state from seeing God in His awesome splendor and majesty, lest we see who He really is and serve Him.

2 Corinthian 4:3-4 (Amplified Version)
But even if our gospel is [in some sense] hidden [behind a veil], it is hidden [only] to those who are perishing; among them the god of this world [Satan] has blinded the minds of the unbelieving to prevent them from seeing the illuminating light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

The sinful nature off our flesh which has only hatred for the things of God, coupled with the veil that has been pulled over our eyes are two devices that are largely the reason why so much people seem to find comfort in sin, see God’s goodness to some extent, but still continue to live sinfully.

The Lord will remove the veil from each of our eyes but He requires us to act obediently in faith believing and accept Jesus’ forgiveness of your sins and receive Him as your Lord & Savior. If He removes the veil first, then your choice to accept Him wouldn’t be on made in faith but because you would be able to see clearly the evilness of sin and the glory of God.

My prayer today is like Moses you take that first step in faith, he stretched forth his rod and the red sea parted. If he didn’t, he and all of the Israelites would have died by Pharaoh and his army. Our step is one that is tied to very serious implications to life in the hereafter as well.

AMEN!

Fight, Fright or Flight

Paul was someone who used to persecute and even put Christians to death yet, when God transformed him he did marvelous exploits, inclusive of writing 11 epistles within the New Testament. He fought through shipwrecks, public punishments inclusive of whippings, imprisonments and being in danger from several crowds of people in certain regions and a whole lot more. His faith to this day is above reproach.

Peter, however; as a disciple of Christ was told by Him that he would deny Him thrice before the cock crowed. He didn’t believe but when people began pointing him out from within the crowd, his fright got better of him.

There is also the story of Jonah; whose mission it was to warn Nineveh of their rebellion and if they never fasted and repented the Lord’s judgement would have been assured. He chose flight, and later endangered himself along with a ship of people who was soon about to be wrecked by a catastrophic storm sent by God because of Jonah’s disobedience.

Peter and Jonah’s sin was as a result of fear and pride.

I wonder how much times for fear of what our friends would think we like Peter, denied Christ too?

I wonder how much times in our self-righteousness we think ourselves better than others, and thus, pre-judge, criticize act selfishly or even wish for other person’s demise?

I wonder who is tired of living within normalcy and mere status quo? Who is going to be utterly sold-out for Christ, no reservation or hesitation; to be willing to lay down their lives for the gospel?

Fear and Pride are two powerful forces in which the adversary uses to cripple us from getting to know Christ or further deepening our relationship with Him.

My prayer today is that fear and pride will be gone from your life now and forevermore!

Prayer for Today:

PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT, I welcome you into my life today. You, Holy Spirit is the ONLY Spirit that I wish to remain in my life. I invite You into every are of my life even now; in every corner, facet & crevice. I ask in Jesus’ Name every kind of fear and pride will ne abolished NOW, from within me. I ask for Your grace Jesus, that I may love with Your compassion, power and humility. Empower within the inner-man that I may also slay all lusts and pride each day. I pray all these things in the matchless name of Jesus Christ! Amen!
