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.

True Love Knows No End

If God does not do another miracle in your life would you still love Him?

If He never gave you the one thing you needed the most would you still serve Him?

What would it take for you to fall out of love for God.

Is it the scarcity of His presence?
The empowering feel of His love?
Is it the absence of His voice?
Or to never be able to see His face?

Surely, it must be something serious, so deep and so profound.

What would make me betray you?

LORD search my heart, purge the evil deep down.

Rid me of sin and the hold it has on me; break every stronghold that I may be free indeed.

Let me love you for who You are, for You first loved me unconditionally.

I desire for You to be my only desire, to fall endlessly in love with Thee.

For Your miracles, Your presence and benefits I am forever gracious.

Yet, it is Thy heart and not Thy hand that I love; Your confidence in me makes me greater.

Help me to see myself the way You see me that I may grow in faith.

Help me to love myself the way You love me that I may never waver.

If all the world’s a stage and we’re just a part of Your play;

Let me play the role that Your Son played and love like this was my last day.

I Love You Jesus, my Brother, My King, My Friend.

I Thank You for first loving me with a love that knows no end.

The Power of Two

Two, they say ‘is better than one;’
With one you may lose with two the battle is won.
A few may say, “A few is better than one.”
In a battle with a few the enemy will run.

Where two or three are gathered saith the Lord to us,
No man is an island – love hopes, love trusts.
One may chase a thousand and two set ten thousand to flight,
Let us pray together where we have exponential might through Jesus Christ.

“It’s not good for man to be alone” said God from the beginning of time.
This is true to this day, so let our powers be combined.
“A bird cannot fly on one wing’ and it takes two hands to clap,
This is why the enemy loves dissension, division, divorce and all that.

Let us be cognizant of the enemy and his schemes,
Let us not be proud, but be humble as we pray together on bended knees.
Let us pray for our future, our family, our nation’s needs;
Let us war for our promises, our future generations and our peace.

In the bond of two the enemy sees defeat,
We shall crush his head, the devil is under our feet.
Call a friend, your mother, a brother or your heart’s treat,
Tell them it’s time to pray to our Conquering Lion; Jesus Christ, our Prince of Peace.

Singing the Devil’s Praises

The language of the devil is lies, thus it follows that glorifying him any greater than speaking his language, is that of singing him praises by our grumbling. Grumbling means to complain about something in an ill-tempered way.

The enemy seeks to destroy our faith by speaking lies directly to us, often in a first-person form of speech. For example, I may be asking the Lord in prayer to heal me of a certain condition. The enemy will try to input thoughts into my mind by saying things such as:

¤ I don’t know why I’m wasting my time, I’m not going to get healed.
¤ Look how much good people died from sicknesses, why would I be any different?
¤ Maybe I should just accept this as my own reality and stop fighting it.
¤ Maybe God really doesn’t exist, and if He does; maybe He just doesn’t care.

This is exactly what happened to me when I was struck with an unknown and incurable condition. This is how the enemy injected doubt into my thought process, which became the very things I meditated upon, and therefore had spoken.

People would ask me, “Haven’t you prayed?” I would grumble by saying “Yeah, I prayed and God didn’t heal me.” Some may not see the sin of grumbling in this statement, but if you ponder it a while longer you will recognize that not only am I speaking doubt into others, but I am also solidifying the doubt I already have about God within myself. Lastly, I am speaking ill against the Lord.

I am basically saying:

– I, Philip McKenley, am a good person.
– I prayed
– God, ‘the bad person’, refuses or withholds His healing.

The Bible speaks of the Israelites grumbling in 1 Corinthians 10:8-11 in the wilderness in which God sent the destroying angel to kill every one of them. The thing with grumbling is that it’s very cancerous and it spreads like wildfire. Once the sin of grumbling is conceived by believing in the devil’s lies, they have basically accepted their defeat and only through sincere repentance may again find favor with God.
