When Nothing You Do Brings a Profit

“Bodily exercise profits little, but godliness is profitable unto all gain.” 1 Timothy 4:8
This verse is one of my most favorite verses. There are many more powerful and sacred verses that I love but, this one is important to me because it is so practical.
It speaks to the business of making a profit. For most businesses, one of their main objectives is this very same goal. Making a profit as well as the degree to which that profit increases over time is a core objective. Profit, by definition, means ‘a financial gain, especially the difference between the amount earned and the amount spent in buying, operating, or producing something.’ It’s a benchmark of success and the increase and consistency of such are of paramount importance.
This verse relates this very concept towards everyday life. It compares said physical activities, such as the work we do, schooling, socializing, exercising and so on, and measures it against living godly. By this measure used, the profit would be achieved by one’s godly living, rather than the alternative.
So the question to you and me is this – Are you making a profit with your life from God’s perspective? How would you measure your level of godliness? Is it at a profitable level? Or are you making a loss or barely breaking even?
As long as today is still called  ‘TODAY’ and now still called ‘NOW,’ I believe we owe it to the CEO of our lives to assess where we are in our daily living. I believe this should be important above all other plans, agendas, and objectives.
For if only in this life a profit is to be made then a grave loss it would be if the eternity in Heaven thereafter was never attained.
I believe this is the most sacred, most life-changing and eternity-saving opportunity for each of us to measure our life against the call to live godly before men and God. It must be done today, and even more importantly, it must be done honestly, humbly and consistently.
Let us sincerely measure our worth before Him, humbly confess to Him where our failings exist and be willing to give Him the Lordship of our lives, so that we may truly be empowered by His Holy Spirit to live Holy and godly before all, for His Glory.


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.

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. 

Happy Emancipation Day Jamaica!

My prayer for everyone in this ‘Land We Love,’ is for all of us to be holistically free. We have freedom in one sense, but with regard to our minds, souls and bodies there is another fight to win. It is a fight, and winning is the only acceptable option. Freedom cannot be gained by merely asking or negotiation. For many, freedom had to be purchased in blood and battle.

Our freedom was already paid for, when Jesus Christ, the Lord & Savior of the World came down to earth and fought the most bloody and most important battle for all lifetime. He won the battle for us to have the following:
¤ For our health over sickness and disease
¤ For our peace of mind over stress and chaos
¤ For our self-control over addictions and weaknesses
¤ For our power over principalities and demonic forces.
¤ For our joy over anger and depression.
¤ For our prosperity over poverty and lack.
¤ For our freedom over sin, death and the grave.

This day of National Emancipation can become a day of Personal Eternal Emancipation. A day where YOU say to the devil, “I will serve you no longer,” a day where you say to your flesh, “I shall daily slay thee,” and finally; a day where say to Jesus, “Lord Jesus, I confess of all my sins and ask You to forgive me of all my unrighteousness. I invite You into my heart and my life and be My Lord & Savior forevermore. 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.


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.


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.


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.


If You Ain’t First, You’re Last!

So, Today’s the first of July and as such, it’s been a while since we did the Devotional “Seeking FIRST” the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. This devotional will examine if God is FIRST, or help us to realize exactly how important He is to us; being 100% truthful to yourself, is the only requirement.

What is the very FIRST thing that you do after waking up in the morning (that is, after using the bathroom etc)?

What is the FIRST thing that you do or think about doing when you get your paycheck?

Where is the FIRST place that you go in times of trouble?

What is the FIRST thing that comes into your mind when you think of Heaven; and now, Hell?

When comparing phone, internet, tv, gym, parties or devotions which comes easiest to you?

Today is a day like any other but sometimes it helps reconciling our belief in God to our actual actions; after all, ‘action does speak louder than words.’

I urge the readers of Today’s message to realize that like the Ricky Bobby from Talladega Nights said “If you ain’t first, you’re last!” If God isn’t first then you know who is.

Prayer for Today:
LORD JESUS, help me to put you FIRST in all things, including relationships, my affection, my treasure and my days. Forgive me for where I’ve went ahead of You and got too busy to honor You with best part of my day, my energy and focus. I ask for Your Grace to put You FIRST and keep You there, in Jesus’ Name. AMEN!!!


Two Wealthy Business Men

This is the story of two wealthy business men, who wanted to invest their riches.
The 1st business man brings all his money to a swindler, whose company only deals in short-term investment activities. The swindler invests all the business man’s cash for the purpose of immediate returns; with no long-term plans whatsoever. His business is named, Immediate Gratification with the slogan “Why Wait?” This caught the business man’s eye, because he was a man who lived in the ‘NOW’, and believed in working hard but partying even harder; so Immediate Gratification (I.G.) was the place for him.

The 2nd Business Man invested his wealth with an old-fashioned investment banker, whose business was named Rock Solid Investments, with a slogan “Yesterday, Today, Forevermore.” His company’s portfolio ranged from short to long-term investments along with a life-after-death facility, that allowed for one to spend paradise in a place that inspired all other paradises. The business man rested well, knowing the master investor would not only be able to strengthen his holdings, but guarantee his eternal future.


Today, we invest in motor vehicle insurance, just in case of an accident or theft, mainly. We invest in life insurance which does not do much for us personally, but mainly helps our loved ones when we pass on.
Business people are taught succession planning as we know that one day the younger generation will have to take over.

Nevertheless, many people today operate with total disregard to the risk of dying outside of Jesus and His holiness. They plan for their future and their family as it pertains to life here on earth. The strangest thing is that most people believe in a heaven and hell yet, they make no assurances that this is where they definitely have to go. They may have a desire or intention to make it there, but somehow there is never a right time for them to make the decision or have the relevant conversations. Most times, they are too busy with earthly matters and entanglements to make the most important decision of all.

This is not only unfortunate but a severe catastrophe. My prayer today, is that we all STOP whatever we believe is so important and guarantee our eternal salvation, because in the end –

The worse thought would be us being so busy working, going to school, looking about our business, family, friends and fun at the expense of neglecting Jesus; pass on from this life, and after we do, they decide to accept Jesus after. We would have given our world and eternity for them, but in the end, even a million prayers wouldn’t be able to pluck us out of an eternity in hell.

Prayer for Today:
LORD JESUS, help me to never be too busy to guarantee my eternal salvation. I ask You to take precedence over everything in my life that competes against my affection and dedication to You. I confess today that I am a sinner and I repent now and forevermore. Come into my heart Jesus and save me from myself from this day, to my last day; in Your Name I pray. AMEN!
