Father Forgive them…

Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing. Luke 23:34

The Lord Jesus, told His Father to forgive the very people who were crucifying Him.

Jesus’ crucifixion took 6 hours. That is, six hours of mockery, public rejection, whipping, torture, being marred beyond recognition, culminating in His being nailed to a cross, pierced, spat on and left to die.

Seems like they knew exactly what they were doing.

But, do we really know that each time we reject Jesus’ salvation we are basically committing the same crime?

Do we know what we are doing?

Do we know that each time we say to God, “No, I am not ready yet” or “I just don’t know” we are a part of the great numbers that say, “Your suffering, death and resurrection was wasted on me😤. It was in vain✋.”

Do we know what we are doing?

For even those that turned away; are we not committing the crime of Peter of denying Him, or the betrayal of Judas? The Bible describes it as a dog returning to His vomit🙊.

Do we know what we are doing?

I am one of the most greatest backsliders. I’ve gone from preaching on buses to promoting parties. I’ve gone from being used to heal cancer to being at 400 parties in one year. I’ve gone from bringing hundreds of people to the Lord scattering maybe thousands through my social media pages.

So I am as guilty or even more guilty than any of you.

LET US ALL REPENT AND ASK GOD TO REVEAL HIMSELF AND HIS LOVE FOR US THAT WE WILL BE ETERNALLY & ENTIRELY CHANGED!!!

The Cure for H.I.V.

Scenario:

Imagine if you or someone you loved was diagnosed with H.I.V. One can imagine that this could be the worst news that most people would ever want to hear. However, I also want you to imagine that there was a cure for H.I.V but it was very expensive. Let’s say the cost was 2 million dollars. Would you be willing to pay for the cure or invest in it for your loved one? Most people I know would.

Lesson:
One of the worst diseases in this world is sin. It is the root cause of sickness, disease, pain, depression, death and so much more. So many people there be that suffer from this eternally catastrophic disease yet none seem excited for the cure of Jesus Christ. We seem to be more swayed by the fruits of sin than sin itself. This is not a surprise or mere coincidence.

The devil has deceived us into accepting sinful lifestyles as we slay the voice of our conscience and the Holy Spirit. This then allows us to feel free and at peace in sin but in the end it’s the greatest deception of all. Let us not wait for calamity when the wages of sin comes to fruition when we then come to our senses. I urge us all to mediate upon the disease of sin and appropriate the cure of Jesus Christ.

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;

  • Prayer

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

    “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice
    and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
  • Praise & Worship
    2 Chronicles 20:21-22
    After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying:
    “Give thanks to the Lord,
    for his love endures forever.”
    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.
  • Shouting
    Joshua 6:16
    The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the LORD has given you the city!

    And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
  • Sharing
    Matthew 25:35-36
    For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
  • Silence/Stillness/Waiting
    Isaiah 40:31
    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.
    Isaiah 30:15
    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.

Now, “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.”

AMEN!!!

 

 

The Truth Shall Set You Free!!!

Imagine a world where doctors spare giving you your diagnosis for fear that they may hurt your feelings.

Imagine the judicial system refusing to judge someone of crimes because they were told to ‘judge not.’

Imagine if all teachers gave all students the same compliments and same grades for fear that one may feel offended.

Would the world be a better place?

Jesus said it like this, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”

The doctor, in all loving kindness has a responsibility to tell you the truth of your diagnosis so you may decide which course of action you may need to take.

The same is true of Christians. We don’t want to be the ones to call sin out and bring what’s in the dark to light, but what example would we be if we hid our light under a bowl?

My prayer is that we all realize the disease of sin is more deadly than any disease, more catastrophic than natural disasters, more powerful than even death.

It’s that thing lurking on the inside of each man, woman and child – that no matter one’s creed, deeds or what they have achieved; if sin is in our lives we are in danger of hell fire.

That last statement is your diagnosis if you are a sinner. The course of action you now choose will determine if you die to the disease of sin or live by the cure of Jesus Christ.

Amen!!!

He Already Paved the Way

I made you with for a purpose to be a vessel of honor,
To give me Glory in all that you do by My enabling power.
I made you with the perfect career in mind with the right hours
I have a ministry for you but you stray from your Strong Tower.
I have warned of a warring lion who seeks only to devour,
But between self and selfies I’ve lost you and some are now cowards.

My purpose is assured with a 100% guarantee,
As long as you purposed with all your heart to follow after me.
I made the sacrifice that you could be free indeed,
I paid the price so you could live your life abundantly.
But in disgrace you dishonor my arms stretched out to thee,
For sin, self and satan many rejected the call to be holy.

Their purpose was wrapped in their obedience to hear my call,
True success kept knocking on hearts but they’ve built up a wall.
My Spirit was manifested in parents, ministers and all,
They would speak of my love to them but they ignored, denied and stalled.
Each time they would be in trouble, I’d be there after-all,
I would rebuke their pain from the fall and give them strength again to stand tall.

Yet, though my purpose was to give the exact thing the were hustling for,
Very few gave me a chance to lead them beside still pastures.
I am resilient in my efforts, abounding in mercy to the core,
I will keep reaching out to my creation as they even doubt I am their Creator.
For you who are tired of failing and living a life impure,
Give Jesus the wheels of your life and let Him guide you to heaven’s shore.

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.

The Enemy’s Blueprint (poem)

by: Philip McKenley

Kicked out of heaven they called it pride,
Hated myself, how could an angel like me backslide?
The chief of his musicians, the apple of His eye,
Now, I and a third of His angels are cast aways from on high.

So we strategize against His greatest creation, the man and woman;
Concocting soothing forms of seduction called temptations.
Meant to sway their focus away from His guiding hand,
To becoming servants of sin, so we alone won’t be damned.

I’ll be damned, if I Satan don’t wreck this world in which I’m king.
I’ll make them fall for the same thing that I failed in.
Fill them with lust and pride, pour it up to the brim,
Let them hate holiness while dancing in the love of their sins.

I know I have the masses, the faithless and unbelieving,
It’s east getting the lovers of money to fall for basic deceiving.
But it’s the remnant that perplexes me, hindering me from sleeping.
They are utterly surrendered to Jesus, morning, noon and evening.

Intensify your efforts! Don’t came back until they fail,
Steal their joy, attack their health, let’s seek out the weak and frail.
If they’re sold-out, then we will keep another sale.
Attack their unsaved loves one, I alone shall not weep and wail.

Satan, we have a report, it is bad news!
They are all giving Jesus praise no matter what we’d do!
We tried stealing their joy but our efforts failed miserably dude;
They thanked God in everything, plus they’re praying and fasting too!

We should have never sinned this is all your fault,
No we are going to suffer for eternity because of our downfall.
And Jesus’ chosen are out of reach, they hate sin after all,
But in every setting there’s always some who rejects an ‘altar call.’

 

Too Busy

I am so busy, like each and everyday.
Too busy to talk right now, too busy to hear you pray.
I have the poor to help, so many mouths to feed.
There is enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for everyone’s greed.

I’m busy son; my daughter, please hold. Talk to Me later or leave me a message after the tone.
Please don’t complain, I’m God – this is true.
You have always been too busy for Me, now I’m a little too busy for you.

I know you’re back is in a corner, I can hear you while you’re crying.
There’s so much watches in the world, yet, no one has the time.
You delay until the last-minute when calamity hits,
Then you call out for Me saying, “Jesus, please fix this!”

Yet, all day I called for you when life was so fun,
And like a fugitive from my love, all you would do was run.
You would flee from your calling and your purpose all day long –
Into the arms of the evil that I died to save you from.

too-busy-too-listen

“Busy, just too busy,” is always your excuse.
So now I’m just too busy, to be focusing on you.
Imagine if we got what we deserved? Would the Lord still hear our call?
So many deny Him daily yet claim to really love Him after all.

They never repented, never confessed or asked Jesus to come within.
They always thought of holiness as boring, and found great pleasure living in sin.
“But I believe in Him,” some say; “I even say so on my Instagram profile.”
But even the devil believes to be honest; simple belief isn’t worthwhile.

Unless a man surrenders his entire life to the Lord, and sincerely lives in obedience to His Word;
His life will be in danger of hell fire, this should be of great concern.
And if the earthly agenda has him wrapped that he hasn’t secured his soul,
Then rather than being sold-out for Jesus he’s simply out-cold.

In the end, all jobs, money, friends and followers will be left behind,
They may turn to Jesus because your death was enough of a sign.
Then you would realize that you had so many amazing chances –
Yet, was just too busy to accept the Lord’s advances.

Some may start to read this but may be too busy to read to the end,
If you are still here reading, please forward this to a busy friend.
Please consider making Jesus the Lord of your life,
Of all the wrongs things that we’re busy doing this is the one that’s so right.

The World vs. The WORD

The world says in order for us to be wealthy we have to save and invest.

The word says that we will be wealthy by giving bountifully.

The world sometimes tells us that our success is deeply entrenched in our independence from others.

The word teaches us that the greatness is achieved by becoming a servant unto all men.

The world teaches us to secure our own future – protect ourselves at whatever cost.

The word teaches us that best way to protect our life is to lose it by giving it to Jesus who is will do all the work of protection and provision.

The world speaks of pride as if it were a great attribute to attain. One big example is the term ‘gay pride.’

The word refers to pride as the #1 detestable sin before God.

The world speaks to living in the now; enjoying life by any means while we can, wherever we can, however we can, as long as we can.

The word speaks of being sober-minded, living holy and working out our salvation with fear and trembling.

The world uses words such as: impossible, incurable, untreatable.

The word says all things are possible to them that believe.

These are a few examples of how much the world of the devil differs to the word of God.

The choice of where you decide to stand is yours. One promises earthly and eternal victory with unlimited power.

The other does promise much beyond certain defeat with no hope of true joy, peace or real power.

Prayer for Today:
LORD JESUS, help me to choose wisely Today. Give me the grace and the wisdom to follow after You with all my heart. Forgive me Lord, for the times when I sinned by choosing to reject you. I decide Today, to invite You into my heart as my Lord & Savior forevermore. I pray all these things in Jesus’ Name. AMEN!!!
