(KJV.) ST. JOHN 18:37
(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.
WHAT IS THE TRUTH?
In a nutshell; during the trials of Jesus Christ, Pontius Pilate said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus replied; Thou sayest that I am a king: you see! Pilate discerned that Jesus is the King of all kings; but, Jesus never claimed to be a king; this is what Pilate perceived, the crown of glory was upon him, the kingship fruits bared, witnessed to who Jesus is; therefore, no matter where a believer resides or what they encounter in life, the fact is, they can never be separated from their Christlike attributes, if they are kind, they will show kindness; it is the fruits that bear the witness of who they really are in the spirits: Jesus answered to Pilate; To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Bump! in inference, Jesus hit the nail on Pontius Pilate's head, gave him the solution to his puzzled mind: the bottom line of his assignment was, to bear the witness unto the truth; the ponder question is, what is the truth?
Beloved, in a different lecture, Jesus said to his disciples; "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me" cf. John 10:27; likewise, he concluded his statement to Pilate; Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice; therefore, those who belong to him, hear his words; if we are his, then, let us listen to obey him, adhere to his words, and bear fruits of righteousness. Let us Love one another as ourselves! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 21:13
(13) And said unto them, It is written; MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED THE HOUSE OF PRAYER, but ye have made it a DEN OF THIEVES.
IS THIS MY HOUSE?
As the world turns, we have come to an era whereby the man has to reverence his maker again; it is the time to put away the idols of our hearts, pay attention, seek and reverence him; to do so, we have to start from his sanctuary; there a couple of sanctuaries to start working on; first of all, from within the heart, unclog the spiritual blockages, hatredness, grudges, malices, resentments, unforgiven spirits, etc., the debris and encumbrances that are detrimental to our relationship with the Holy Spirit, to purify our temples, a time of reverence, tuning the ears and eyes away from the lusts of this world, things that might distract attentions, rather focus and seek his face by prayers, loving and reading of the scriptures with the Christlike mindsets of eternal lives.
Secondly, the cleaning of the two aspects of the church of Christ, let us mend the ways in which we present the gospel to the flock in other to appease many souls to Christ; if you ask, what can we do differently from what we are doing? Jesus is the answer, let us get him involved; the sub-aspect is if our sanctuaries are too maxed up with gadgets, overwhelmed with distractions, how can a worshipper focus to reverence and hear the word of God? Not forgetting the time we take away from the worship services to squeeze the leaky pocketbooks; hmm! Don't get me wrong! All the these are important in the house of God, yet, let us do all things in moderation, incorporate the Holy Spirit, reverence God, the Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Beloved, whether we perceive, discern what is going on in this world or not; things have changed in the realms of spirits, manifesting upon the earth, currently, the heavens agenda, the kingdom of God, is now upon the earth, his will is in process; therefore, let us reverence him, embrace what Jesus Christ is doing forward in our midst; there are changes already sanctioned by heaven yet to manifest upon the earth; we are in the end times, he is coming back again soon. Continue to love one another! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) I CHRONICLES 4:10
(10) And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
BE POSITIVE ABOUT THE NEGATIVE!
Grace be unto you! It is life-saving, for the man to speak positive connotations, for death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. cf. Prov. 18:21; if we want life, we need to speak life, if death, it shall be so; whatever we speak out, it does not matter, if care is not taken to retrieve the negative utterances, they will manifest as well; therefore, let us think careful thoughts about the words we utter into existence; speak positively upon ourselves, families, and others; believe it or not, the same life force, that God, used to create the world, the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, which raised up Jesus from the dead lives within our mortal bodies, therefore, we are capable of transforming our world, change the negatives into positives with what we utter into existence.
The man called Jabez was more respectable than the rest of his siblings: however, his mother called his name Jabez, saying that she suffered a lot during his birth; a sad situation! let's take a note of his name; Jabez when he grew up, did not like his name because it was associated with sorrow, therefore, he called on the God of Israel to bless him very well, and make him a greater, wealthy personality, that his hand to be with him, in other to guide him from evil, for his name was associated with a sad situation, that whenever it is called, he would not feel sorrowful, mentally depressed or inferior among people, for the rest of his life; God, compassionately answered his prayers; he became a greater person among his siblings; case in point; Jabez did not accept his fate, coiled into a shell of sorrows for the rest of his life, he did something about his negative dilemma; today, is anyone among us with a troubling heartache? Jesus is with you to hear your concerns, you have the power to change things around for good, pour out your concerns to him, as you petition, so shall it be done for you.
Beloved, though we name our children with the names we desire to call them, these children will not stay under our habitations forever, they will eventually move away; therefore, it will be nice if we step into their shoes first, think about their future, how they will feel about their names twenty years down the road of life, the perspective of others, whenever his/her name surfaces among other names, before we register their names; a name can determine the future of the man; case in point, God, made a covenant with Abram, changed his name from Abram to Abraham, made him the Father of nations. cf. Genesis 17:5; he also asked him to call his wife Sarah instead of Sarai, because, he will bless her with Isaac, make her the mother of nations as well; cf. Genesis 17:15; therefore, names are an important aspect of every living thing, including the beasts of the field, God gave Adam an assignment to give names to the things he created, whatever he called them, so are their names till present times, Genesis 2:19; therefore the names we bear on earth are recorded as well in the heaven books of records, names are important to God; be mindful of the names we bear, choose the rightful names of blessings, not just any name type of name, do everything out of love and cares for one another; Jesus is coming back again soon. Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
