Galatians Got Me!

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.  Galatians 2:20.

If you have been following me as you can see it wasn’t nothing to follow because I couldn’t put anything on paper sort of.  Well I didn’t have anything to write.  You can sort of say I had writer’s block.  I mean who am I kidding I’m not really a writer in the sense as some of you are.  I have skimmed through a few of the blogs which I can say were a blessing in the time that  I read it and truth be told I was like Lord can you give me some of that, you have sons and daughters that you pour into on a consistently daily basis.  What’s wrong with me can you help a daughter out.  I have to chuckle and I can hear him say “Really” Daughter and me replying I know I got some issues that need to be addressed..  I am so thankful that although I wasn’t on my site as I had wanted to but look at this at 2am in the morning I had a little talk with Jesus (you know the song) so funny; but it’s true.  So many things were coming out about myself as He revealed to me it seemed from Genesis to Revelations  I kid you not.  Not literally from chapter to chapter remnants of the chapters. What’s amazing to me how I believe He told me about himself; making me repeat Our Father is Spirit and Truth (unseen God) and how God the Son Jesus (seen and physical God) and God the Holy Spirit (Unforgotten God as the Father/Jesus – returned back to the Spirit)  Now I promised you I had to write this down because I never heard of this analogy about the Spirit and of course I am going to find who else this was revealed to so stay tuned.  For now I realized how God moved me out of the way so I can trust Him 100% no wavering.  I’m preparing to go on the prayer line in which I had shared with another friend of my who in the few months who came to me on Sunday to tell me that she is prepared to give up because no one is coming on the line (I’m guilty because I couldn’t tell her most morning I was held back from going on the line (didn’t know then that no one was coming on the line) that God and I were communicating one on one and I was loving it and I don’t think this is me being selfish if that’s what you want to call it but God had already put in my spirit exactly about that time that she was going on with this discouragement.. Hmm maybe it was being selfish…It’s so amazing that I was prepared to tell her on Sunday (it had to be the Holy Spirit) that the Lord had told me to open the line as I instructed at the beginning of year.  Let the mothers know that you are going forward with consistently……talking about divine intervention.  Early this evening I was giving the  name as “MNSHOPI” Mothers and Sisters House of Prayer International sent text out to join 5am-6am prayer believing in faith that someone will come on the line.    I’ve learned that was one of things that need to be fixed during my one on one with the Father- How sweet the sound knowing that Jesus died just for me.  He died just for you and how profound that this scripture has been jumping at me before I spoke with my Sister. I’m looking forward to what God has for me in this ministry back then I was afraid but now I am not.  If you’re reading this keep me in prayer as I pray for every reader as I believe in faith that it was his divine appointment that led you here and that you too can take Galatians 2:20 with you to the bank 🙂

Your Sister in Christ!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Writer ‘s Block

Amazing how the world defines success as climbing up.  There are many articles on statistics in one area or another of how to be successful.  In many cases you will see that of people who have a career (making the bucks) i.e Executives in all categories may have inherited their wealth some may have gotten this success from a good education while some may have had mentors or some who have been in the right place at the right time.  In essence someone who is successful has either come from humble beginnings or some by any means necessary to accomplished success in which the world sees.  There are a lot books on the market as well how someone may have come  from the bottom with humble beginnings and climb their way up the ladder.  There is also another side that many of us don’t know sometimes the struggle or maybe the hard work they put in to climb this latter in what we see as successful.  Ironically, this brings me to my perspective for 2018.  I’ve decided that not to make promises or resolutions for what I could remember I always in one way or another would do every  New Year. But this year I believe for the first time in my life I will knowingly wait and  let God tell me what I need to do for this new year.

For years, I’ve been told to write it down.  I have always been afraid of this gift that God has given me.  I’ve always asked the question “Why Me Lord” At an early age I have known that there was something peculiar about me. I can remember now profound it was for me to discover the verse  I Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:  I mean I owned this verse it explain to my understanding that this is how God sees me and this is why folks would look at me sometimes with envy sometimes with love. It’s not my fault or my doing when I receive favor and I seemed to always jump back when things don’t go well in my life.  Out of all the siblings in my family I was the different one.  Always and even today my siblings when they look at me there is always this look that they give me that there is something special about me (with Love) This is who we are in 1 Peter 2:9; that’s you too.

BLESSINGS

Just Saying….

God speaks to us when we think He has forgotten us I mean those who believe.  It’s doesn’t matter to the unbeliever because this thought doesn’t cross their minds. (so they think) How interested that over two thousands years ago (skeptics) that He knew that your thoughts would not be on Him so He sent Himself to be known as Jesus Christ.  If you truly believe who He is you would have to be changed in becoming a believer.  So how do I convince an unbeliever.  I’m not going to bash you I’m not going to scream nor am I going to send you an emoji or SMH symbol.  What I am going to do is to direct you to a few scripture of why Jesus came for the World and since you and I are in this World it applies to us both.

  1. Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners.

    1 Timothy 1:15, “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.”

  2. Jesus Christ came into the world to call sinners to repentance.

    Mark 2:17, “When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

  3. Jesus Christ came into the world to seek and save the lost.

    Luke 19:10, “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

  4. Jesus came into the world to demonstrate the true purpose of life and give Himself a ransom.

    Matthew 20:28, “Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

  5. Jesus Christ came into the world to be a King and bear witness to the truth.

    John 18:37, “Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.”

  6. Jesus Christ came into the world to do the Will of His Father.

    John 6:38, “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.”

  7. Jesus Christ came into the world to be a Light in the world.

    John 12:46, “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.”

  8. Jesus Christ came into the world that men might have the Abundant Life.

    John 10:10, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

  9. Jesus Christ came into the world to Judge the world.

    John 9:39, “And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.”

  10. Jesus Christ came into the world to Proclaim or preach the Good News about the Kingdom of God.

    Mark 1:38, “And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.”

  11. Jesus Christ came into the world to die on the cross.

    John 12:27, “Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.”

  12. Jesus Christ came into the world to fulfil the law.

    Matthew 5:17, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”

  13. Jesus Christ came into the world to be a Divider of men.

    Matthew 10:34, 35, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”

    (Christ makes it necessary to choose between relatives and the truth. This choice often causes division.)

  14. Jesus Christ came into the world as a demonstration of God’s Love.

    1 John 4:10, “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

  15. Jesus Christ came into the world because the Father sent Him.

    John 20:21, “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”

a. The Father SENT Jesus to be the Propitiation (atonement) for our sins.

1 John 4:10, “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

b. The Father SENT Jesus and gave Jesus as the Saviour of the world.

John 3:16-18, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

c. The Father SENT Jesus to bless us by turning us from our iniquities.

Acts 3:26, “Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.”

d. The Father SENT His Son to redeem us from the curse of the law.

Galatians 4:4-5, “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”

e. God SENT His Son to make possible a new power in the hearts of men, a power to enable him to fulfil the righteousness of the law.

Romans 8:3,4, “For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

BLESSINGS!

 

Lights, Camera, Action: Genesis Study: 3

One for the Father, One for the Son and One for the Holy Spirit; and these three are One.  I feel safe in His arms from this study that I have to share it with you.  If you are not familiar with Chuck Missler‘s; I would advise you as my new cliche I like to use “Go google” In this case, Him.   He is one of my favorite bible teachers; and I thank the Holy Spirit for directing me to him. Pastor Chuck is the pastor of pastors and he is real deal.  Pastor Chuck is so much smarter than me that he can speak to anyone no matter what level they are on in their spiritual journey.  His teaching will have you thinking like never before and prompts you to say to  yourself  out loud WOW;his studies are really worth your time if you can get a hold of it.  Sometimes I get so mesmerized that it really takes me to another realm (spiritually) I’m in awe when I hear his teaching and how he makes it applicable to our everyday lives for today.  It’s good medicine for the soul; so shout out to Pastor Dr. Chuck Missler.  Read the Book of Genesis and you will find some interesting First mentioned of the bible.

BLESSINGS!

 

 

Body, Mind & Soul : My Purpose

Grace & Peace,

First I want to say Grace & Peace to all my brothers and sisters who I believe prayed for me and deep within their spirits they knew the Lord was dealing with me in identifying my purpose in my journey on my commitment before 2016 is over I pray I bring someone to know Christ.  I pray all of you are being blessed with God ‘s  grace and mercy as I’m sure you are as I’ve gotten a chance to read some of your posts and surely by sharing the gospels that indeed your purpose is to glorified God; I say  To God be the Glory!

I’m so hooked on Jesus that I’m excited I mean truly excited to know that I’m his daughter and its just right to know who I am and whom I belong too!

I’ve been studying on Spirit, Mind & Soul and I know my flesh hasn’t put it together but my spiritual being has because I never thought of this as being my trinity or never though of mind, body and soul as a truine.  I know of it  as being three but I never said”Oh this is a trinity as in truine”.  The bible clearly distinguish that we have mind, body and soul:  Duh; Genesis 1:26 “God said, Let us make man in Our image” (Genesis 1:26). We know that God is a Trinity. The Holy Trinity is clearly set forth in the Apostle Paul’s benediction that closed his Second Corinthian Epistle: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen”  Therefore, we have to be a truine being because he is created in the image of God.

The two following passages from the Bible clearly establish the fact that man is a triune being composed of spirit, soul, and body:

I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 5:23).

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (body), and is a discern-er of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).

Our Lord Himself said, in what we call “The Great Commission”: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 28:19). Created in the image of God, man is likewise a trinity. He has a spiritual nature that is separate and distinct from the body in which it dwells. This is my calling.  Oh yeah I know what my purpose is; to Evangelize, Lead Praise & Worship;  Intercessor and start a mini bible study.  Hallelujah thank you Holy Ghost for the revelation.

P.S. I wanted my title to read:  Resurrected 🙂

BLESSINGS!

 

Bible Study-March 2016:Life-Changing Events for you and for me

As you read; there was some struggle on what I was going to name the title of this.  (ironically it was named Bible Study March – then I was led to change it to above).  This  study is taking us directly to Jesus.  Just to keep it real; the entire bible directs us to Jesus. It’s such a blessing how the Father puts everything in perspective for us to get a hold of in his Word.  As stated; this is the greatest book ever written.  Let’s just say this book is a superstar of books; something that every human being should read and get to know. I would challenge the skeptic and unbeliever to give it a try.   I’m doing my part as I’m sure you will get to your part in getting the word out

So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? (Matthew 24:44, 45)

That brings to give this subtitle:   Life-Changing Events for you  and for me

Devotional Reading: Malachi 3 1-4; Background Scripture: Luke 1:57-80; Title Scripture:  Luke 1:64 – His mouth was opened immediately and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, and praised God.

Prayer:  Father,  I pray that people would know that God is working to bring positive changes for those he love and for those who want to know him.  Father let us respond to your life changing events with gratitude for the need to be positive vessels of change so that doing your will not be in vain; but that you get the glory in what you teach us in Jesus name we pray.

If you are reading this; please note that it’s truly not by accident but by the spirit of a divine purpose (The Holy Spirit _ God) that directed you to this page.  Yes, it may seen peculiar but it’s okay.  Truth be told if you expand your horizons if you are a  unbelief or would like to challenge yourself into knowing that there just a tipsy bitty belief that you have an unexplained notion within yourself that that tells you  “let me see what this Jesus is all about” welcome to club you are not alone.  There are many stories of believers on how they came or stumble upon something that got them interested in seeking what is this Jesus thing.  So for that I extend my “Congratulation” to you.

Luke 1:64 King James Version (KJV)

64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God!

Zacharias was the Father of John the Baptist who preached that the time is near and now “Repent” he lived and breathe relentless  preaching Repent; basically, he was used by God through the Holy Spirit to preached this message.

Please read the following scriptures on this study:  (Background Scripture: Luke 1:57-80) and ponder on this. As we read; the priest; Zacharias was temporarily silenced because he doubted God’s promise announced to him through the angel, Gabriel.  It was promised to Zacharias that he and Elisabeth would have a son in their old age and they must name the child John.  John was known as  forerunner of Christ.  Because of Zacharias unbelief, (that he would have child)  his mouth was shut by God to become speechless until after the promised child, John was born. Being inspired and controlled by the Holy Spirit he was able to speak again v67.  I felt sad for him; can you imagine seeing this promised poke at him for 9 mos but then not able to speak of the joy he must have felt and it had to be hard on Elisabeth as well or maybe it was just fine with her maybe when she asked him to do something he couldn’t respond verbally “Why do I have to do it” just being sarcastic you know how we can get with our love one.  Let’s get back on track.  This verse is so exciting because it’s praise points to the great redemptive work that God would do through Jesus Christ. In Christ rested all of Israel ‘s hopes, and only though Him would their deepest longings be satisfied. The message  in these scriptures has so much meat in it.  (1) divine visitation (The angel Gabriel) (2) redemption of the Israelite’s v68, and God raising a horn of salvation (the instrument of saving power) from the line of David v69.  All these themes well all three of these are rooted in the Old Testament. Although Jesus was soon to be born as well ; the prophesy concerning him was not new.  His birth was spoken (prophesied) through the holy prophets long long ago. V 71-75 indicates the expectation of when the Messiah arrived. Luke 4:16:30 tell us God promise to deliver his people from their enemies including human and spiritual forces.  God loves and still loves his chosen people.  Please note that all of God Promises are Yea and Amen.

I like Matthew Henry Commentary below to give you some background on John.(after reading this – it seems fitting to add to my title now in the heading 🙂 this is why; thank you Holy Spirit!

MH Commentary: Matthew 3:1-6 After Malachi there was no prophet until John the Baptist came. He appeared first in the wilderness of Judea. This was not an uninhabited desert, but a part of the country not thickly peopled, nor much enclosed. No place is so remote as to shut us out from the visits of Divine grace. The doctrine he preached was repentance; Repent ye. The word here used, implies a total alteration in the mind, a change in the judgment, disposition, and affections, another and a better bias of the soul. Consider your ways, change your minds: you have thought amiss; think again, and think aright. True penitents have other thoughts of God and Christ, sin and holiness, of this world and the other, than they had. The change of the mind produces a change of the way. That is gospel repentance, which flows from a sight of Christ, from a sense of his love, and from hopes of pardon and forgiveness through him. It is a great encouragement to us to repent; repent, for your sins shall be pardoned upon your repentance. Return to God in a way of duty, and he will, through Christ, return unto you in the way of mercy. It is still as necessary to repent and humble ourselves, to prepare the way of the Lord, as it then was. (Homework:  read the verses I gave you above; and then locate MH Commentary and read it entirely)

In the next lesson; lets discuss more of John messages of repentance as well as why did he lived in the wilderness eating locust.

Closing Prayer:  Thank you for the way Jesus birth and earthly ministry changed history.  Thank you that His coming into our hearts has changed our lives and will changed those that are coming when they acknowledge and accept you as their Savior.  In Jesus name, I  pray AMEN
