“The God of Heaven”

Ephesians 2:6 And He hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I wonder what it’s like to sit in heavenly places? I would imagine it’s pretty cool lots of angels fluttering around shooting love arrows at people, kicking the clouds. One day while at a prayer meeting I had a realization that we are to be seated on the right hand of Jesus and make supplications for our requests. Then the light bulb went off! If were seated with Jesus (In the Spirit) We are to pray down our needs. I have always prayed up for my needs. You see there are three heavens. The First Heaven, is our Atmosphere here around us where men live. And above where the birds fly and

“God my Rock”

PSALM 18:46 The Lord Lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the God of my salvation be exalted. Trials and Victories. A time to weep and a time to laugh. When you look at this verse it just explodes out of Psalm 18! In Psalm 17 David is pleading his case before the Lord vs 3: You have tested my heart, you have visited me in the night; You have found nothing. Psalm 18, David begins to remind himself of who God is in his life and what He has done for him in the past. Suddenly he bursts out with this “The Lord Lives!” “Blessed be my Rock!” “Let the God of my salvation be exalted!” It bursts out of his heart like the waters of Mount Horeb, the Rock that provided water for Moses and the Hebrew people in

“Jehovah Shammah”

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge him, and He shall direct your paths. Do you remember when you were a child trying to learn how to ride your bike for the first few times? Your mom or your dad would stand behind you and hold your bike steady. You would get your balance and slowly start peddling while your parent ran along behind encouraging you to keep peddling! Hold on tight! You’re doing Great! Then their voice would start to seem more faint and you would look back and see that they had let you go on your own, and that last wave and encouragement to look forward and keep going straight! I hope this symbo

“Lord our Shepherd and Friend”

Ecclesiastes 14:12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not easily broken. I remember years ago watching a Navy fighter pilot telling his testimony about being shot down over Vietnam and captured by the North Vietnamese army. He endured years of suffering and isolation. They tried very hard to break him down and make him confess to war crimes. He was and hopefully still is man filled with wisdom. I was captivated listening to his story. He said something that was his strength that no man could take away. He said “When you’re in isolation and you have the Lord you are never alone.” You see he may not have known, but he was tapping into the p

“God of Might and Power”

Romans 8: 37-39 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. I Love this scripture I used to attend a church pastored by Dr. Lee Lamury (Bro. Lee) and he had a great analogy of this verse. He compared it to a champion prize fighter that trains so very hard to win the Heavy Weight title. Think of all the hours of hard work and conditioning he must undergo to win this title, hours of brutal punish

God of Grace

Matthew 18:6-7 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Do you remember one of the greatest players in the NFL Barry Sanders, who played for the Detroit Lions as a running back. He always appeared to me to be a man of great moral character as well as a superior athlete. When he first began his NFL career he fumbled the ball during a game, he became so angry at himself that he determined he would never fumble again. He wen

“The God Who Hears”

Psalm 34 :15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. When you first start off reading this it sounds a little spooky if you don’t know what He’s talking about. We could probably have said the watchful protective eyes of the Lord are upon us. I’ve had a few encounters with demons over the years and believe me they are nothing that you want to look at. Fear is their biggest strength, as well as their biggest lie. One time when I woke up in the middle of the night there was a demon standing next to me, I was so scared I could not even say the name of Jesus. I just kept saying “J!” “J!” trying to say Jesus. But while I was doing this that demon took off

His Glory is in the Rainbow

Genesis 9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for thee a token of a covenant between me and the earth. It is an amazing covenant that God created with man. God has just flooded the earth and now He is making the: ‘Noahic Covenant’ and these were some of the conditions to the new covenant: 1) Re-Populate the earth, 2) Given rule over the animals, 3) Capital Punishment, 4) No more floods, 5) The Sign of the Bow. The Bow or what we call the 'Rainbow' was promised to all posterity as a sign that God would never again flood the earth. It’s evident from this verse that the earth has been flooded previously, this was called the: pre-Adamic earth, here’s where we get this certitude: Ge

“The One Who Lifts My Head”

Hebrews 13:15 Therefore, by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. How or why could praise be a sacrifice? How do you eat the fruit of your lips? What is giving thanks to his name? And why not just Thank Him? There’s allot of questions behind this one verse if you meditate on it for a second, but let’s break it down and find the fruit within. Have you ever been so devastated by a sudden circumstance or tragedy that you didn’t know what to say or even think? The loss of a loved one where the hurt is so heavy that it feels like your soul has an anchor on it? You can’t much less even talk but you force yourself to s

How to Recognize your Blessing

Gen 24:2 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh: Recently I had an intoxicated man approach me at Prayer Stop. Well let’s rephrase that, a very obnoxious drunk to be honest. He started off by asking me for help with rehabilitation and then we prayed for him. As we were ministering to him my friend drove up who is a manager for a men’s rehabilitation program that helps men overcome addictions. My friend gave him his business card telling him that he has to make the call. And the man through it down on the ground saying we didn’t understand what he needed. So when he wasn’t looking I stuck a bible and th

Faith the Final Frontier

Genesis 22:8 And Abraham said, my son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering. So the two of them went together. Faith the final Frontier, doesn’t this sound like the opening of Star Track? Do you know what the definition of frontier is? In part, the farthermost limits of knowledge or achievement in a particular subject. Abraham had traveled for three days looking for just the right place to offer his son Isaac, as the Lord had commanded him to do. And Isaac is starting to figure out that something isn’t quite right about this trip? Isaac has carried the wood on his back for the burnt offering just like Jesus carried the cross. In Hebrews 11:19 the Apostle Paul states t

Love, it has Rewards

Psalm 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. Have you ever faced a difficult situation in life where there seems to be no way out? We all have. Here’s the formula you need to get through the situation: all you need is Love, Love for God that is. Pretty simple isn’t it? If we amplify this verse: For upon Me he hoped, and I shall rescue him. I will shelter him for he knew My Name This is called ‘Expectant hope’ or faith. I once told a Pastor “I wish God would just tell me what to do.” He smiled and said “Now that wouldn’t be faith.” And he was right, faith is just trusting the creator of the universe and

The Greatest Commandment!

Mathew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. When I first became a Christian I was a police officer in Louisiana. I read this verse and it really distressed me. How can I Love God with all my heart when I have never met Him? So I went to my friend a sergeant that led me to the Lord and asked Him this question, “How do I love God with all my heart when I have never met Him? I met my aunt from far away once when I was a child, and I felt like I was just supposed to Love her but I didn’t even know her?” My friend just looked at me with a blank stare and said, “I really can’t answer that.” Now I was in a rea

First Love

1 John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us. This is one of my favorite verses in the bible, not because it’s short and easy to remember. But because it speaks of the goodness of God, that He loved us before we knew Him. One day while at Prayer Stop a Muslim man came up to me and said “What is this Prayer Stop?” I wish I could type in the beautiful accent he spoke with. I explained that I prayed to Jesus and Jesus answers the prayers. Then he mentioned something that most Muslims think, “I love God but I don’t know if He loves me? I hope He does.” In my mind I went straight to this verse but did not say it. I said “Do you have children?” His response was “yes,” “and do you love them?

His Sake, is your Sake

His Sake, is your Sake 6/16/2016 Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. Sometimes I’ve thought that if I were ever stranded on a deserted island and only allowed one book out of the bible, it would probably be the book of Ephesians. It can really provoke you to deep thoughts in the Lord. This is such a beautiful verse in the bible, pretty straight forward, be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving. But then Paul says something very amazing “even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.” The modern definition of the word Sake is: out of consideration for or in order to help someone. But in

Make it well for yourself

Isaiah 3:10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. God’s promises don’t get much better than this. Often times in counseling with other people I run across the sin of un-forgiveness. But not in the way you think, mostly people have a very hard time trying to forgive themselves and they are even unwilling to do so. Peter asked our Lord this question, thinking he was justified at forgiving someone seven times. Mathew 18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Mathew 18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy

Wrestling for your Blessing

Genesis 32:24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. This is the encounter Jacob had with God before crossing the Jabbok river. In my mind’s eye I can see Jacob looking at a stranger that approaches him in his time of great fear, and battles with men. One was fleeing a battle with Laban from behind, and now he has to face his brother Esau who has sworn to murder him. Now picture Jacob is left alone on the river bank staring down a stranger in the middle of the night. Have you ever had such a huge problem in life that it feels like your wrestling with God? Or worse yet the opponent of God? Jacob is about to encounter his worst fear Esau, and

Study to Relax

Psalm 23:1-6 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. A couple of days ago The Lord told me: "Study to Relax" This is

It takes time..

Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. What is Strong Meat? Is it like a steak that lifts weights? No, it comes from the Greek word ster-eh-os’ which means solid, stable, steadfast, or sure. In addition to this Paul adds the word meat, which also originated from a Greek word; trof-ay' being defined as; Nourishment rations wages, food. How do we get this strong meat? Well here’s where you need to find a good church with a good pastor. That can teach you the uncompromising word of God. Believe me it takes allot of courage to get up in front of people and speak the truth abo

Why go to Church?

Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Over the years I have run across many people that don’t think that they need to go to church. But this verse clearly states that you should be going to church. You see a church body should be exhorting (encouraging, urging, pressing) each other to do the works of God. I remember a letter that was sent to an editor of a newspaper by a man that said: He could see no reason for going to church anymore and that after 20 plus years he couldn’t see where
