Hidden in Plain Sight

The man she wanted was filled with words of wisdom that stimulated her intellect and further established her confidence. He properly guided her to a success that she herself thought could never be possible.

His words were the honied-dew kind that would remove strength from knees. They were like a heated knife melting through butter; romantic and yet filled with respect that solidified her inner-beauty and self-worth.

He showed her who she really was, not the reflection in the mirror but the finished, refined and perfected product of who she could be and was made to be. It’s as if he parted the curtains of time of revealed who she would eventually become.

He was just a shadow of a greater Master, an Architect at work. He was a father reassuring her of his love. He was a mother, comforting her in her times of hurt. He was that best friend who could read her emotions beneath the smile. He was the spouse that was carved from all that would complete her and by which he too would be completed.

He was Jesus, reaching through every friend, family member and lover trying to get to you. Behind every good, every smile, every moment and even the pain;
Jesus was forever the lover who was behind the good that came.

All that she can and was ever made to be, could never be achieved, until to His love finally surrendered and bent the knee. His plan is perfect, pure and powerful and was designed even before her birth; the problem is that she now gives His praise to everything else which brings Him pure hurt.

18 Years After

18 years ago to this exact day a 16-year-old Jamaica College student went up to the front of a church in response to an altar call.

Little did he know how his life was going to be transformed. He neither knew 1 week later he would be filled with the Holy Spirit nor that 2 weeks after God would use him to heal someone and prophesy to a church.

All he knew that he was as sinful, cunning and evil as they came. On the surface, he was a seemingly decent young man, but deep down was a person that would weaken anyone’s relationship with the Lord.

From turning proper Christian-like girls to the most daring ambitious bad girls to influencing curious people to becoming the most hardcore partygoers.

How was he to know that Good Friday, would lead him to do the complete opposite of what he did previously.

Or that he would be a preacher on buses, a minister through social media, a mentor to a few, a full-time evangelist to a world that seems to be growing ever so further away from Jesus Christ.

Yet, here he is; 18 years after:

The road; a mess.
The walk; riddled with failure.
The struggles; many.
Those led to the Lord; around a thousand.
Greatest miracles; salvation and stage 4 cancer leukemia healing.
God; ever-present.
Fighting; always.
Loving; always.
His; always!
Humility; my number 1 ask of the Lord.

This is where I am after 18 years. Where will you be?

ALL or NOTHING

The Lord is not coming just for our:
¤ Tithe of 10%
¤ Day of Worship
¤ Few minutes of Prayer
¤ Random religious post
¤ Several respectable deeds

If we think He is, then we have been gravely deceived and immediate changes are recommended.

The Lord is coming for EVERYTHING!!!

He said to LOVE the LORD your GOD with ALL your HEART, ALL your SOUL & ALL your MIGHT; and finally, LOVE your NEIGHBOR as yourself (Luke 10:27).

He doesn’t want a portion, a day, an act, a moment. He wants ALL and in truth and in fact; deserves ALL.

That is:
¤ ALL our money
¤ ALL our energy
¤ ALL our talents
¤ ALL our focus
¤ ALL our attention
¤ ALL our affection
¤ ALL our minutes, days, weeks & years
¤ ALL our good, bad & ugly
¤ ALL our mess & messages
¤ ALL our sacrifices
¤ NO holding back
¤ NO reservation
¤ NO hesitation
¤ NO relenting

Then & ONLY then will we truly experience Ultimate Freedom & Victory in Jesus Christ.

Until that time, the devil will always have a bargaining chip; a tether by which he can reach us.

When we give it ALL up for Jesus, He will give it ALL up for us.

Faith Misplaced? A Serious Mistake

If you have made the mistake of using any other means for success, fame, power, health or wealth; other than to have placed it in Jesus Christ, you have not only been deceived and involved in the detestable sin of idolatry, but are also in danger of God’s wrath; as the wages of sin is?

This message is not one to be ignored, simply overlooked or disregarded. We have thrown away our faith that should have been placed in God, and decided to trust in self, trust in others, and some in groups and organizations some of which are even sworn to secrecy. God neither slumbers nor sleeps. Allegiance, that is, swearing to anything in heaven, on earth or under earth is from the devil himself as said by Jesus in Matthew 5:34-37. Be not deceived, for God is not mocked, what is sown shall be reaped.

Any other dependence other than God is a sin, point-blank. You should take this as a most sincere warning that if you continue on this path there will be certain and sudden destruction. God wants to be your source for all things and is able to provide all that you need that pertains to life and godliness. Yet, evading His plan and love will only be to find comfort in prepared path that leads only to eternal damnation.

There are not many who may love enough to be cut to the chase and tell you the plain truth as it is. As such, this is a letter of loving warning to all who take the time to read, and please, pass on to a friend, sister or brother. Place the entirety of your trust, life and being in God’s hands and watch Him do His best work in and through you. Amen!

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.

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;

    As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated.

  • Silence/Stillness/Waiting

    But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

    This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.

AMEN!!!

 

 

Limitless Life & Love

 

The God we serve is always growing, from everlasting to everlasting, from faith to faith, from strength to strength and from glory to glory. We are made in His image and the same is innate within us. There is always a hunger for more love, knowledge, power and so on.

God is love and He is able to increase us each day with more love towards Him. He is the source of all love and life so on my journey to limitless love and life who else would I turn to but Him. I believe the following prayer is one of the most powerful prayers one could ever pray and God will always answer it:

Lord Jesus, help me to love You the way You love me.
Help me to love myself the way You love me.
Help me to love each person the way You love me and finally;
Help me to love my enemies the way You love me.

I am a sincere believer that we may always ask the Lord to increase our love, increase our faith, give us grace to conquer our weaknesses, empower us with grace towards obedience and so forth. These prayers are simple, pure and selfless and as such is always guaranteed with an immediate answer from the Most High.

My prayer is that we seek to live a life in Christ filled with His life and love.

AMEN!!!

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.

6fd22a8d0ccc1acfd620b4a64cf52294--god-jesus-jesus-christ

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!

Ready to Start Making a Profit?

Going to school
Going to work
Going to the gym
Going to church
Going out
Giving to the poor
Buying a house
Buying a car
Getting married
Having kids
Being a good person
Being forgiving
Being loving
Standing up for justice
Being a voice for the weak
Studying the Bible
Having religious conversations

Two people could manage to do all these things yet, one could inherit eternal life in heaven and another be sent to eternal damnation in hell. The only difference would be which one had received Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

a2dfbb4c71779be1e1a1e9c0fc38cdd0

Sad to say, but even the best of life’s if lived without Jesus brings very little profit if any. Life is all about accepting the finished work of Jesus in which He overcame, sin, death and the grave; so that we could be empowered to live holy, righteous, powerful and free. Anyone who tells you anything less than this is a liar and the truth is not in him.

So many spent so much of themselves at the pleasure of self or others and missed the mark. My prayer is that you realize that Jesus is the Merciful today but rejecting Him becomes the Great Judge tomorrow.

What Time is It?

Time it’s one the most powerful resources to show some somethings worth.
It’s like when it comes to time, people are rarely late for work.
Time waits for no one, the countdown clock begins from birth;
Isn’t it funny we always have time for school or work, but some have no time for church.

The thing with time is that it tells where our heart’s treasure lays.
The place where you spend your time mostly is the god that has your praise.
So, I say I love the Lord but in a given week, I can barely give Him a Sunday or Saturdays.
Yet, our time for other things are never compromised. LORD please let Your truth saturate!

They praise Me with their lips yet their hearts are no where close,
Service to God or money many make money their cross.
Who said ‘time is money’ that phrase is so funny; in time and money that person got lost.
Time is the precious commodity given to us by the Ultimate Boss.

funinjamaica-1499705229189

Time is precious please don’t forget this life lesson friend,
Time is the only thing that keeps our hearts beating, at an unknown time that ends.
This is another day and time to make Jesus your Daily Bread,
Ignoring this time could be the last time; choose wisely where you wish to spread your bed.

What time is it?

For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
2 Corinthians 6:2.
