(KJV.) HEBREWS 10:37-38
(36) For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
(37) For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
ARE YOU COMING?
Brethren, to do the will of our Father, we need to have patience, try as much as possible, to bear with people, and not to lose our tempers while we wait upon him: meanwhile, let us endeavor to do his will diligently, serve him with all our hearts and might, do what we are suppose to do for his glory, whether in congregations across the globe, in secular worlds or friends and family circles; if we look around everywhere, there are several opportunities to do his will; therefore, let us find something to do for him; serve him wholeheartedly that when trumpets sounds in heavenly places, to meet with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we may receive good reports and covenanted blessings from our Father, and by his grace, hope for greater glories in life everlasting.
Many times, believers, had go through trails and tribulations; this is not new; it is a package deal to follow Jesus Christ; thorough sufferings, our Father equips believers with powers and strengthens their faiths in his righteousness, to make them shinning examples for his glorification; he also uses believers sufferings to furnish their souls into perfections on their ways to eternity; therefore, when believers resist sufferings, their fleshly vessels, cannot be broken down entirely, to allow their spirits vessels of glories to surface and shine forth from within their innermost spirits, to affect humanity, so that spirit of Jesus Christ may glorify himself within their souls to accomplish his purposes on planet earth; therefore, the more their spirits are crushed, the more they ought to persevere with prayers, in other to attain more spiritual strengths and glories: through the process they ought to exercise greater patience, through which comes hopefulness and trustfulness of our Father's love through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and allow him to complete his works entirely; that they may stand firmly on faith grounds in his righteousness to accomplish assignments for his glorification on planet earth forevermore.
Dearly beloved, we hear bells giggle around the world, that Jesus Christ is coming soon!; at times, we take it as a nuisance and turn deaf ears on his words; guess what?; same ways, when Noah was given the assignment to build the ark, he did not just build an ark, but preach the words of our Father to warn the people of his intention to destroy the world with water; however, no one listened to him; when the appropriate time came, our Father did what he had to do to prove his words that they are truthful words; therefore, no one know exactly when Jesus Christ comes back the second time, but, if we have not yet receive him into our hearts as Lord and Savior, time is running out!; let us not turn deaf ears on warnings of the preachers, prophets and missionaries, their messages are from Jesus Christ himself; but make turns from walking and stumbling in world of darkness; repent of waywardness, receive him, salvation and life everlasting. Are you coming? Jesus is waiting for us! Amen and Amen!
QUOTES OF THE DAY:
(KJV.) Isaiah 26:20-21; Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

(KJV.) ISAIAH 41:9-11
(9) Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.
(10) Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
(11) Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
FEAR NOT; "I AM" IS WITH YOU!
Brethren, our heavenly Father searches the hearts of humanity, chooses souls for salvation, and set them aside as his chosen children, to be proud of and utilize as vessels of his glory; however, when they trespasses or turn away from him, he does not disowns them completely; but turns his face away from them, casts them asides because of their sins, allows the enemy to chastise them, when they repent from going astray from him, ask for his forgiveness and mercies; because of who he is, his love, faithfulness and compassion, he restores them, shines his lights of love and mercies upon them forevermore.
As beloved chosen people of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, regardless of what type of storms of lives, waves of billows, desert lands, furnace of fires, or whirlwinds of torments, blowing around our souls; our Father is encouraging us, saying, (i) Fear thou not; therefore, if the creator and owner of all things of heaven and earth assures us not to be afraid; then we ought not to be afraid, he is in absolute control of our lives in all troubles, for, it is written in the book of Psalm 24:1; "The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein."; that's it!; our Father owns all things, engineers all things of both heaven and earth; we were not alone on earth but he is with us; we are in his presence; as a result, if we walk in his righteousness and are favored by him, there is no evil that can prevail against us, he will fight our battles and prevail against all odds; do not be afraid! (ii) I am with thee; this is a spectacular assurance of our Father, take a closer look at the text; when Moses asked our Father's name on the Mountain of our Father, Horeb, it is written in Exodus 3:14; "And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."; if the I AM, is with us, who can be against us?; also, when Pharaoh arrogated himself against our Father's will, him and his army was destroyed in the Red Sea; see we do not have to fight our own battles, we just have to obey our Father, trust in him, do his will, the blood of Jesus Christ already conquered our enemies, and at the mention of his name, we are more than victorious on planet earth; (iii) be not dismayed; whatever mountains of difficulties we face in life, and have lost courage and firmness in spirit, feel overwhelmed and sinking in the face of our troubles; our Father is saying, "do not be depressed or have anxieties, but trust in me"; for, it is written in the book of Psalm 37:1-2; "Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like grass, and wither as the green herb."; therefore, let us have greater faith in our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, that things will get better soon, at appointed times; (iv) for I am thy God: if the great I AM THAT I AM, is our Father, and Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, there is nothing to fear; for, we have a greater habitations under his wings of protection; for it is written in the book of Psalm 91:1; "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."; he is our refuge and fortress: therefore, let us trust in him and him alone; he will surely deliver us from perils and dangers of this world of darkness; (v) I will strengthen thee; regardless of how spiritual we are, at times, we feel over burden with wordily issues; however, if we belong to our Father, and his breathe resides in our innermost spirits, then we already have strength in him; and need more fires from the Holy Spirit; let us get into his words, pray fervently, be in his presence; for it is written in book of Isaiah 40:29; "He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might be increaseth strength."; therefore, he will not leave our souls in fainting and weakening positions, neither will he allow trails and tribulations overshadow his glories in our lives; but rather, bring our souls under his shadow, in his righteousness; for in his presence, there is fullness of joy, and at his right hand there are everlasting pleasures, let us be strong in his might!; (vi) yea, I will help thee: our Father had sworn and he will perform it; this is an affirmation from him that whatever he said he will do, he does; therefore, let us not worry ourselves in this world; we are covered with the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; his goodness and mercies never fails, they are renewed every morning; (vii) yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness: the right hand of our Father's righteousness!; what an amazing grace!; how wonderful and save we are in the hands of the Almighty Father, creator of all things, and because our Father is a justifiable Father, he limits how much sufferings his children can bear, and does not allow them to suffer more than they can endure; for it is written in the book of 1 Peter 5:10; "But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you."; therefore, our Father is faithful in all his ways, watches over his children at all times, if we are in any sufferings currently, praying fervently; let us know that he can hear our prayers, and watching over our lives, trust him with all our hearts, and wait patiently for his deliverance and settlements by the grace of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. therefore, let us not pay attentions to haters, but focus entirely on Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; for whatever they meant for evil against us; he already died and rose again to changed things around for good and for his glorification forevermore.
Dearly beloved, we are called out of darkness of this world into the marvelous lights of our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; when we find ourselves in any type of sufferings; let us know for sure that our Father is with us, working and will not leave our souls to drown in troubles of this world; but, with our troubles, transform our lives, make us useful vessels for his glorification in his righteousness; and thereafter, pacify our souls with love, goodness and mercies; for in him there is fullness of joy, and in his right hand, there are pleasures forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) LUKE 17:3-4
(3) Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
(4) And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
Brethren, let us take in to consideration the above words of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; this is an important counsel to humanity on issues of our hearts; as we live together on planet earth, we are to interact with one another everyday with love of our Father; however, through our interactions in this world, at times, knowingly or unknowingly, we step on toes, as a result, offenses will enter into our innermost spirits; however, no matter how the offenses come upon our hearts; the remedies to relieve burdens of offenses off our hearts are to forgive offenders and forget offenses; for humanity in general, are offenders in the eyes of our Father, for we offend him with our actions and behaviors at all times; for it is written in the book of Matthew 6:15: "But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your father forgive your trespasses."; therefore, let us endeavor to forgive one another's offenses and live peaceably with all men.
Case in point, after birth, for some reasons, souls get offended and cry out right after they come out of their natural incubators into the darkness of this world; and King Solomon said, it is better the day of death than the day of one's birth. (Ecclesiastes 7:1); therefore, offenses are parts of humanity; we cannot live together peacefully on this earth, without stepping on toes, or bumping against one another, this is impossible!; therefore, we have to interact with one another at all cost, and cannot isolate ourselves, live in bubble shells without associating with other people; for, our Father created all things to work together in love, peace and harmony, the main foundation of this world is based on his love; he is the main source of love and does everything out of love, and expect his children to love one another with the same love; however, the enemy knows exactly how happy our Father is, when we walk in love, are united and live peaceably with one another; therefore, his main goal is to bring division among the earth, sisters against sisters, brothers against brothers, nations against nations, even in houses of parliaments, where politicians are supposed to reason themselves for the benefit of their own people and smooth running of their nations; there are divisions, words of warfare against one another, in matrimonial homes the enemy devises evil to bring separations and divorces, in the secular world, spirit of strive, envy, hatred, arrogance and pride has taken control of hearts of humanity, directly or indirectly they compete against one another and have lost focus on what matters most, salvation and life everlasting, that which only Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior can offer them; however, there is a common enemy working behind the scenes to cause havoc on earth, to make undesirable things and circumstances desirable to humanity, so they can continue to strive for things of this world, disagree with one another, have animosities, bear grudges, and break the chains of love and forgiveness of our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior: beware of what is going on in this generation: Jesus Christ is coming back soon! forgive one another, walk in love, be prepared to meet him in the skies and live with him forevermore.
In the above text of the scriptures, Jesus Christ addressed the issue of forgiveness to his disciples, saying, If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him; but to rebuke someone is to criticize harshly, however, as believers, we can gently tell our offenders how we feel about whatever was said or done against us, without spirits of vexations, but with love and forgiving hearts; since we are all sinners and we sin at all times, so when we sin against our heavenly Father, he will also have mercy and overlook our sins; not only that, but when we forgive our offenders, we set our hearts free from burdens of yokes placed upon our hearts; at times, when we open up to our offenders, let them know how we feel about things, they may or may not accept their faults, and may or may not offer apologies for what transpired, but will defend themselves arrogantly, it does not matter how they assimilate our words, we still have to forgive them, pray about the burdens to be removed out of our hearts, give them all to Jesus Christ, he already taken care of our burdens on the cross by his death and resurrection, so we may have restful lives in his righteousness; at times, our offenders would realize their own faults and offer apologies, that is more Christlike; Jesus said, it does not matter how many times, offenders say am sorry; we have to accept their apologies, forgive them, renew relationship with one another, bond again the chains of love and allow the Holy Spirit to take absolute control of our hearts in the presence of our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, forgive is a "must do" word in believers dictionary; not only do we have to forgive our offenders, but love them as we love ourselves; if we forgive our offenders, we set them free from our hearts, and we intend set ourselves free from the bondage of the enemy, so long as we hold grudges against one another the enemy wins battles over our souls; at times, after the enemy create havoc among love ones, he will use their negative reactions to what his commotions were to challenge our Father on his throne of grace, that his beloved children have enmities and grudges against one another, and are not in one accord and are not trustworthy of his blessings; see how the enemy is very dubious and crafty in all his ways, beware of him; he is working around the clock, looking for whom he may devour, let us not fall preys to his detrimental ways; as we live together on planet earth, we will step on one another's toes, knowingly or unknowingly; however, let us not look for ways to be offended, allow him to infiltrate our thought processes against one another, but give peace a chance, have benefit of the doubts in all situations, positively or negatively, allow Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, in the middle of our thought processes; if we feel offended by deeds of other people, let us bear fruits of forgiveness; let go of one another's trespasses as many times as they trespasses against us; for it is written in book of Matthew 18:22; "Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.; so we need to continue to forgive one another regardless of how many times we feel offended by them; this is also an issue of our hearts; spirit of Jesus Christ lives within our hearts, let us set our hearts free from all worldly contamination, that the Holy Spirit may richly dwell in our hearts, to guide our ways in his righteousness forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
(KJV.) Leviticus 19:17; Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour; and not suffer sin upon him.

(KJV.) 1 CORINTHIANS 2:12-14
(12) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
(13) Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
(14) But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Brethren, when we receive the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit into our innermost spirits and are born again believers, we receive the third person of the Trinity; a spirit which differs from the spiritual breath of life, from our Father's nostril, given to all souls before birth; the Holy Spirit is a spiritual force in himself, but manifests peacefully in the hearts of men; it is the third partner of our Father, and was present during and after creation; but now poured into the hearts of believers to be their companion, to teach them all things of our Father, and comfort them when they are sorrowful, and encourage them when they are weaken in faith, and reprove them when they trespass against him, and quicken them to refrain from making wrongful decisions, approve and applause them when they obey him, and guide their pathways in his righteousness into life everlasting, and to reveals the truthfulness of matters concerning our faith in righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Therefore, when we receive the Holy Spirit, we also receive awakening spirits to know truthfulness of matters concerning who we are in the faith of his righteousness: our Father's love for humanity that he gave his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, to suffer for sins he did not committed, crucified and died on the cross to take away the iniquities of this world, the freedom and grace after his resurrection and ascension to heavenly places; the benefits given to believers after his ascension into our Father, and sat on his right hand as an advocate to plead our Father for his mercies and second chances to walk away from ungodly behaviors, walk in godliness, allow him to reign supreme in our hearts, and have life everlasting; these are few points of what benefits awaits believers in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; however, there are more personal interactions, gifts and revelations of the Holy Spirit, which the wisdom of this world cannot comprehend or assimilate, but that which the Holy Spirit reveals by assessing the similarities and differences between spiritual things of this world with spirituality of eternity, to which carnal minds cannot not receive or assimilate into their innermost spirits; for our Father interacts with believers one on one basis, differently from one to another; therefore, each and every believer has special gifts of the Holy Spirit implanted in their innermost spirits, if we are gifted with powers to preach the gospel, give counsels to those who need guidance, prophesy to break yokes of the enemy, be an intercessor to the world; let us not try to emulate other people gifts and talents of the Holy Spirit, but focus on what we do best and shine as light of the world for Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; for, whatever spiritual gifts received are empowerment from the Holy Spirit to do his will on earth, not ours to conceal, but, it is his own words and wisdom, which works in the Spirit of his power, to glorify himself through our mortal bodies into the world of darkness, to save souls into life everlasting.
However, unbelievers, many times, do not understand why believers to what they do; in essence, believers woke up in the mornings, to relate revelations or instructions received from visions and dreams given by the Holy Spirit to unbelievers; my friend, we waste our times and breathes, if we do not understand anything, it is better to talk to Jesus Christ himself, or an elder in the faith, who may understand, interpret or give counsels; for, after we might have related the mind of our Father to unbelievers, they will laugh out loud, take it as hallucinations, call believers fanatics and lunatics; why?; because, they are not spiritual in the light of our Father, but their carnal minds are in the world of darkness, and cannot receive or understand things of the spirit; for things of the spirit are unwise, nonsensical and ridiculous to them; because things of the spirit are not known by carnal minds, but are detected with spiritual senses, the innermost eyes to see in the spirits, innermost ears to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit, innermost senses of taste of demonic feedings, innermost noses to smell foul odors of demonic spirits, and innermost spiritual powerful hands to release souls in afflictions and bondage of the enemy; therefore, let us stand firmly in what we believe, words of assurances from our Father through the Holy Spirit; do his will deligently, know that we are the ones commissioned to go into the world, preach the gospel truth, bring souls into salvation and eternity.
Dearly beloved, the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit is an important part of the believers walk of faith, in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, let us allow him to dwell richly in our hearts, listen to his words, not grieve him, in other for him to guide us in his righteousness transform our lives into images of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, to perform miracles, signs and wonders for his glorification on earth forever: today, regardless of what maybe burdens of our hearts, let us be strengthen by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, he is our comforter, he has taken control of all our setbacks, all things are well in Jesus Mighty Name forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) 2 TIMOTHY 2:19-21
(19) Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
(20) But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
(21) If a man therefore purge himself from these, be shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.
BE AUTHENTIC CONTAINERS OF SPECIALTIES!
Brethren, we authenticate ourselves by who we are in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; regardless, the establishment of our Father holds firmly its grounds on planet earth, will never fail, but secured forever, with an authenticity of judgment, justice and holiness; and by obedience of his statutes, our Father identifies those who are truly his; therefore, let our attitudes and behaviors portray who we really are as believers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, refrain from ungodly attributes without moral or spiritual values; instead, walk in love, forgive, minister, inspire and encourage one another, serve our Father with all our hearts, do unto others, as we would like others do unto us.(Luke 6:31), and live peaceably with all men in the presence of our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Our Father is flavorful!; in his establishments on earth, he anoints, empowers and sets aside human containers of specialties to hold his spiritual powers for his purposes to accomplish on planet earth; some of these containers of specialties are more precious in his eyes than others: case in point, in our dinning rooms, we have plates, cutlery, cups and napkins for everyday usage; and we also, set aside for special occasions, beautiful, expensive China plates, gold or silver cutlery and embroidery linen napkins; however, we will not use set aside kitchen utensils for everyday meals, to cook and serve special occasion dinners' would we?; the same concepts, applies to our Father's anointing workers of his vineyard; he anoints human vessels, sets them aside, for either his everyday usage or for special assignments in the vineyard of glory; for example, David was anointed a King of Israel, while King Saul was still on the throne;: (1 Samuel 15:13); our Father anointed Jeremiah from his mother's womb, sanctified and ordained him as a Prophet to nations, before he was born: (Jeremiah 1:5); etc...some of these chosen vessels are made of gold, others of silver; then also of wood and of earth; depending on assignments and spirituality: however, some vessels he honors and others he dishonors: whether we are anointed as any of these objects mentioned in the text above, with more or less anointing glories given, but we are all precious in his eyes; however, he anoints some containers with higher glories than others, and specially anoints containers, according to contents of their hearts, faiths, usages, reasons and purposes of their callings in his vineyard of his glory: therefore, he anoints containers to preach his words, others as deacons and deaconess, Sunday school teachers, musicians, graphic operators, ushers, parking lots traffic directors etc.. however, the question we need to ask ourselves is, why does he honor or dishonor some of his own anointed vessels?
As believers, at times we get carried away by our anointing glories and dishonor our Father; you may ask how?; the answer is, after we must have receive his anointing, but backslide into our old sinful natures, do whatever we desires, and not follow after his purposes, walk in self righteousness, allow spirits of arrogance and pride into our spirits, to take control of the anointing powers of the Holy Spirit residing in our innermost spirits, and we begin to demean people we ought to love, serve, encourage, minister and bring along into the last boat of salvation, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and life everlasting; we fall from grace to grass, and give our Father reasons to dishonor his own chosen vessels of honor; for example, when King Saul, disobey our Father, he dishonored him, (1 Samuel 13:13), gave his throne to David the shepherd boy; therefore, our Father dishonors anyone who dishonors him; for he not a respecter of men, and will not count us among his beloved vessels of glory; though, we were anointed with the anointing oil of the Holy Spirit; our Father will not delight himself in us, our anointing will be of no value before him, because it has being contaminated with unrighteousness; if we honor him, he will intend honor us, prove us as chosen vessels of glories, and grant us victories over our enemies, protect our lives from perils and dangers of this world and shower us with earthly and heavenly blessings forevermore; however, blood of Jesus covers all sins, repent and believe the gospel, have life everlasting.
Therefore, as we have known our Father, and he knows us as his beloved children; let us walk in his righteousness, purify ourselves from all works of ungodliness, have respect for our Father, fear and reverence him, obey his words, love and have respect for one another; for, whatever we do on this earth, as chosen vessels, positively or negatively it reflects on how our Father honors us; if we honor him, honor our fellow brothers and sisters, we will receive back the same honors; therefore, let us put our Father, his Son Jesus Christ, promptness of the Holy Spirit first in everything we do, honor and adore them, so we can be honored, purified and readily available as soldiers of Christ, to do his goodwill on earth and thereafter in heavenly places.
Dearly beloved, our Father knows those who are his; therefore, let us be shinning examples, sons and daughters of the Kingdom, representing our Father on earth, be outstanding vessels of honors, be truthful and authentic, perform our duties and responsibilities with humility and respect for our brothers and sisters; walk in love, let our "yeses" be "yeses" and "Nos" be "Nos"; stand firmly in the faith of his righteousness; honor our Father, his Son Jesus Christ, so we may inherit covenanted blessings and promises of our Father, and hereafter, be joint heirs with Jesus Christ forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) PROVERBS 20:24
(24) Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?
WHERE ARE WE GOING FROM HERE?
Brethren, as humanity, from conception to birth, youthful and adolescence years, our parents plan, monitor our lives; when we enter into adulthood, we take over our own responsibilities, set agendas on what to do and pathways to life destinations; at times, without seeking the mind of our Father, to know our purposes, we miss our god-given pathways in life; though, many times we make wrongful choices in life, our Father is merciful, it is never too late to get back into his will, if we find out that we have lost our pathways in life; for in his way of righteousness, there is life; and in his pathways there is no death but salvation, grace, peace and life everlasting.
Case in point, read and listen carefully to what our Father said to Prophet Jeremiah in Chapter 1:5; Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations."; therefore, our Father forms human embryos beginning from conceptions to delivery, he gives them breath of life, knows their frames, names and characteristics, what they will be future, before they were born; therefore, our lives are not ours, but belongs to him; it is by his grace that we are able to rise up in the mornings, and walk to and fro on earth, not by our own physical strengths; before birth, our Father purifies souls, consecrates those who are his servants and given different assignments for glorification of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; lastly, all souls differs in interests, what may excite one souls, might not excite the others; therefore, it is necessary, even for dating couples to study each other carefully to know if they are compatible to each other before they enter into holy matrimony, and as parents, we ought to study to know what interests our children, and guide them into rightful pathways, pray, ask for sense of directions for our adolescence children and let our Father take absolute control of their lives.
In this world of darkness, there are so many distractions, everybody wants to copy what everybody is doing, whether negative or positive attitudes; so long as it is acceptable to society and becomes norms we go for it; however, life on earth is planned by our Father from heaven before birth and it is given to humanity as gift by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; therefore, we are not to waist our lives on distractions of this world of darkness; but rather, seek our Father to know what our designed destines are, walk in his purposes with faith in his righteousness, have salvation and life everlasting: for, it is written in the book of 1 Corinthians 10:23; "All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient, all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not."; therefore, let us not follow multitudes blindly and copy negative attitudes of this fallen world; if we know our purposes in life, it is time to focus, pay attention to guiding lights of the Holy Spirit and get things done before it is too late, and we fly away to rest; for our Father looks up for those who fear and obey his words, and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; for, our pathways are not designed by our own human purposes, but heavenly designed purposes to accomplish our Father's will on earth; therefore, if we take wrongful pathways and are lost in transits of life; let us call upon our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, to redirects our footsteps back into his purposes into eternity.
Dearly beloved, if we do not allow the Holy Spirit to direct our pathways in life; at times, we become matured adults, but find out that we spent most of our strengths in wrongful vocations in life, and we struggles to accelerate into higher potentials; whereas, if we are able to locate our god-given gifts and talents, perform our duties on earth as our Father designed to be; we become outstanding and are happy in what we do; whether, we become lawyers, physicians, pilots, preachers, painters etc., we are all serving our Father as we serve others with our gifts and talents and have not missed our pathways in life, for, Jesus Christ uses each and every soul to do his purposes on earth, collectively we serve our heavenly Father; therefore, what can we do without him? Nothing! Amen and Amen!

(19) Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
GIVE AND BE HAPPY!
Brethren, at times when we receive abundance of blessings, the enemy of our souls brings upon our lives spirits of intellect, arrogance and pride; knowingly or unknowingly, we tend to look down upon our fellow brothers and sisters who are not fortunate, and are not in the same affluent circles as non entities; but what we fail to realize is, this world and its contents are all vanity and vexation of spirits; what we do not have, we want to have; if we already have, we want to have more abundantly; and worry about what we already have; this is vexation of spirits: whereas, if we share our blessings with other people, love them as we love ourselves, know that whatever we have, was given by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, trust in the giving Father to sustain our blessings as we give them out of love, fear and worship him, seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and other things of this world and hereafter will be given without depletion, worries and anxieties, but with love, peace, joy and life everlasting.
When we receive blessings and favors from our Father, the giver of all things; it is godly on parts, to show same love to people who are in needy situations, for, our Father out of love, shined his lights of goodness and mercies upon our souls and gave his blessings: therefore, if we are blessed, let us reach out to needy brothers and sisters, share what we have received with them; that we may find more favors in the sight of our Father, receive more blessings to do his goodwill on earth; also, it is godly on our parts to share our testimonies, tell other people, what our Father has done in our lives with his blessings and give him all the glory for being so faithful; he takes delight in our testimonies, praises and thanksgivings; therefore, let us be thankful, give him all the glory, for he is good and his mercies endures forever!; for it is written in book of Luke 16:10; "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.; therefore, let us be careful of how we handle our blessings; for we are stewardship of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and our negative of positives deeds are being recorded against our names in the book of life.
Fruit of thought; as blessed children of our Father, instead of rolling up our eyes upon those who we categorized as unfortunate people, and isolate ourselves from them, let us rather walk in love, have patience and be meek unto them; follow after the righteousness of our Father, as he gave, so shall we give; be strong in his might, with faith in his righteousness into life everlasting; but lay up treasures in heaven where they cannot decay or corrode for future establishments, have salvation on earth and inherit life everlasting.
Dearly beloved, there is nothing wrong with riches of this world; King Solomon was blessed with abundance of riches; he declared that all is vanity; therefore, if we have received abundance of blessings from our Father; let us show kindness, share what we possess with needy people; and lay in store eternal blessings that cannot corrode or decay, for future inheritances in eternity; for it is written in the book of Acts 20:35; "I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive."; therefore, let us endeavor to honor his words, give to receive his earthly and heavenly blessings forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) 1 PETER 3:13-16
(13) And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
(14) But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
(15) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
(16) Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?
Brethren, as we walk in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, we have no reasons to watch our backs, fear no foes, or tremble in this world of darkness; for, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ watches over our souls at all times, to deliver us from the enemy, his blood avails much and our souls are precious in his eyes; therefore, let us not be timid believers, but rather be bold and brave in his righteousness, know who we are in him, walk on earth as princes and princesses of eternal kingdom into life everlasting.
At times, believers suffer persecutions, reproaches and martyrdom for following rightful pathways of Jesus Christ; if they suffer because of who they are in him; then there ought to be no worries on their parts, but rather pleasurable and satisfying experiences, to know that they are in the will of his righteousness, regardless of what happens to their mortal bodies, their souls are not completely destroyed but will rise up again on the day of recon, to unite with him in eternity, receive rewards of crown of glories forevermore; persecutions and martyrdom of Christ believers, are nothing new under the Sun; it has happened before and continues to happen in all generations, until the second coming of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior to receive his believers unto himself in the firmament of glory, live with them forevermore.
Case in point, Stephen, the Apostle of Jesus Christ, was a man full of faith, and power, did many miracles among people; however, one day, when he preached the truthfulness of what was going on among the people, they became furious and decided to stone him to death; but he was full of the Holy Ghost, and did not pay attention to them, but looked up steadfastly to heaven, saw the glory of our Father, and Jesus standing at the right hand of our Father; immediately, he proclaimed what he saw, the crowd became furious, uproar and drag him out of the city and stoned him to death; while he called on the name of Jesus Christ to receive his spirit, he also prayed for forgiveness of sins for his killers. (Act 7); unbelievable!; therefore, regardless of what enemies do to believers, though they seem hopeless in the hands of their persecutors; (i) heaven watches over their souls, there is hope in our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, there is nothing to fear or worry about in the hands of our enemies; (ii) regardless of what our enemies do against our souls, we ought to pray for them, as they try to destroy our lives, though we maybe aware of their evil works, let us not pray for their destruction, but rather pray that they are forgiven, and for the Holy Spirit to touch and transform their lives to walk in his righteousness: (iii) despite the facts that, truth when spoken hurts offenders, and may put people in difficult situations; we ought to still speak truthfulness of matters, and receive eternal glories than cover up matters, and lose our salvation: the question we need to ask ourselves are; as believers of this generation; are we ready to die for Jesus Christ, pray for our haters and killers?; the answers are ours to ponder on; and beware that what has happen in past generations, are happening now and can happen to any believer anywhere, at anytime during their walk in the faith of his righteousness; therefore, let us be readily prepared to speak truthfulness of matters, suffer and die for righteousness sake, receive crown of glories and inherit life everlasting.
Dearly beloved, we ought to prepare ourselves as soldiers of Jesus Christ, with swords of the spirit, kingdom words of our Father, study to know reasons why we became his followers, have clearer visions of our Father's will for our lives on planet earth in our innermost spirits, be readily available to explain ourselves, to inquiry minds, who would like to know reasons why we chose to follow and have relationship with Jesus Christ, and endure sufferings and injuries, but still have patience and without resentments, and not afraid for our lives; but have good self-awareness that no matter what they say about us, or do evil to our souls; they will see the glory of our Father shinning in our lives still, and be put to shame for speaking ill of our preaching the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; therefore, let us persevere and forbear through persecutions, trails and tribulations; if Jesus Christ is for us; who can be against us?; the answer is, no one forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) 1 PETER 1:13-16
(13) Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
(14) As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
(15) But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
(16) Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
HOLINESS TO THE LORD!
Brethren, while we wait upon Jesus Christ to manifest his glory again during his second coming to earth; let us be mindful of what we think about, what we allow to infiltrate our thought processes, be realistic in all matters of life, exercise self control when negative issues arises within our own circles or within the world of darkness, speak wisely but without acts of annoyance, be gentle and careful of choices of words and behaviors; portray ourselves as beloved children of our Father, in the faith of his righteousness to the end of times granted to humanity, during which souls could come to Jesus Christ, have salvation, grace and life everlasting: thereafter, newer beginnings, which is to be given to all believers, to manifest the divine truth of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Therefore, as believers willing to walk in his righteousness, let us be careful not to fall back into our old ways of enjoyments and pleasurable lives, conditions which we were before, in the darkness of this world, and walk in the same mannerisms as children of disobedience and eternal damnation; who are blindfolded by the enemy, and cannot see their ways out of the darkness of this world, or truthfulness of matters concerning eternal kingdom and true light of this world, have not received Jesus Christ into their hearts as Lord and Savior, have salvation and eternity; and because of our lack of knowledge of what to do to free ourselves from the enemy bondage, that is the main reason why our Father, looks upon humanity with mercy, beckons souls to come to Jesus Christ, seek his forgiveness, receive his mercies and life everlasting; for, there is an appointed day, in which Jesus Christ will judge the whole world in righteousness; separate the shaft from the wheat into his barns of righteousness forevermore.
However, as sanctified beloved children, as Jesus Christ is holy, let us also preserve our earthly vessels of sanctification in holiness at all times; watch our conversations, what we talk to people about, what comes out of our mouths, not use our own words to defile ourselves or others; for, it is written in book of Matthew 15:11; "Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man."; therefore, our spoken words can either uplift or breakdown innermost spirits; let us speak words of encouragements, inspirations, ministrations, empowerment, and prayerful blessings.
Brethren, holiness pays!; for it is written in 2 Peter 3:11; . .... what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness.; as believers, there are treasures planted within earthen vessels of sanctification within our innermost spirits; therefore, let us allow the Holy Spirit to guide our words, when we talk less, that portrays that we are in spirit, and when we ought to speak, let our words be few and with wisdom; so that the hearers may receive true words from earthen treasures our Father planted within our innermost spirits, that they may follow his ways of righteousness into life everlasting;: also, it is important to walk in the spirit, in other to resist temptations of the enemy, be heedful of what contaminates our spirituality, move away from those things to preserve ourselves in holiness unto our Father; for, Jesus Christ, did not call anyone into uncleanliness but rather into his righteousness and holiness forevermore:
Dearly beloved, we all know how holy our Father is, there is no flesh that can come closer unto him; for that reason, at times to seek his face, believers crucify their flesh, abstain from food and certain earthly desires for sometimes, to attain spiritually, get closer to him through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, commune and receive his blessings; as believers, we can be used by Jesus Christ at any given times, day or night; to do his will on earth; therefore, let us prepare ourselves, be holy at all times, as active soldiers on duty for Christ, and be readily available to receive his orders at any given moments to do his will all over planet earth forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV,) ECCLESIASTES 7:21-22
(21) Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee.
(22) For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.
STAY COOL, CALM AND COLLECTIVE!
Brethren, as humanity, iniquities inhabits our innermost spirits from conception unto birth; for King David, prayed; "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me."; therefore, regardless of our lineages, whether from affluent or non affluent, believing or unbelieving families, we were born in bundle of iniquities; how? because of Adam and Eve's disobedience to our Father in the garden of Eden, refer to Genesis chapter 3; therefore, we cannot change who we really are until we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior, then the Holy Spirit takes control of our sinful natures, purge them away from our innermost spirits, transform our lives into godliness, to inherit eternity; however, before we receive the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, we are not convicted about negative attributes, but feel normal about ungodliness of this world of darkness, however, when the spirit of truth enters into our innermost spirits, all of the sudden, our innermost eyes are opened, we begin to experience positive changes, gain spirits of discernment and refrain ourselves from ungodliness, walk in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior..
Case in point, at times, we have to ask the Holy Spirit to teach us how to walk away from traps and entanglements of the enemy by ignoring derogatory remarks from other people; ignore, pretend like we are deaf, and not pay attentions to what was spoken, behave ourselves wisely, walk away from scenes of evil, avoid confrontations, silently commune with the Holy Spirit, to take absolute control of our emotions, attitudes and behaviors, but pray for our offenders; whether those remarks are positives to uplift our lives or negatives to breakdown our spirits, regardless, if those remarks were made indirectly against us, they were not for our hearings and counteractions; let us ignore them completely, keep on doing what we do, at the best of our abilities and be outstanding individuals, make a difference as lights of this world of darkness.
Humanity in general, sometimes we find ourselves among people who nurture habits of gossiping, back-biting, and provoking others, they like to cause havoc among brethren, where there is peace and harmony; as believers, if we find ourselves among such groups of people, let us not join the multitudes to do evil against one another, but rather stay cool, calm, collective, and stay away from such ungodliness, and know that as they hurt others in their absence, they will do the same to one another; therefore, let us be careful of who we associate ourselves with in this world of darkness; if we pay attention to whatever other people say about us, we cannot focus on what to do for them, it is the tactics of the enemy to distract and derail our missions by focusing on his evil hindrances; let us not allow him into our focuses but focus entirely on Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, he rebukes the enemy on our behaves, knowingly or unknowingly, Jesus fought our battles on the cross, we are more than conquerors on this earth forevermore.
During the ministry of Jesus Christ, his enemies followed him wherever he went, listened to what he said, looked for faults from his speeches, whispered among themselves, he heard their words, knew their thoughts, but still ignored them, continued with his ministrations; therefore, as believers, let us not fight our own battles, but leave our haters in the hands of him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light as chosen vessels of glory; our haters are his haters, battles are his battles, he already fought and prevailed over the enemy by his death on the cross and resurrection from the tomb, we are victorious forevermore: for example, in the book of Numbers chapter 12; Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses for marrying an Ethiopian woman; because they were jealous of who he was, as our Father's mouth to mouth spokes person; and our Father heard them, became furious, called an emergency meeting in the Tabernacle of the congregation, defended Moses and punish Miriam by affliction of leprosy; this is an example of how our Father fights our battles; we do not have to fight our own battles when enemies rise up against us; therefore, any degrading words of the enemy spoken against our lives, we do not have to worry or defend ourselves; for our Father will fight our battles and we will hold on to our peace.
Brethren, let us learn how to ignore provoking and reproaching spirits, but rather focus on what matters most; love and pray for them, regardless of their short comings, that someday, they will allow the Holy Spirit into their hearts and be transformed into his righteousness: however, do not get me wrong, we were all sinners and at certain points of our lives, we may have acted in the same negatives manners, knowingly or unknowingly towards our fellow brothers and sisters, but are now saved by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; therefore, let us walk in his righteousness, but endeavor to pray for those who are still in darkness of this world as well, understand that they are in bondage of the enemy, when they make insulting, degrading, demeaning remarks, we ought to show love in return; for despite our everyday trespasses our father is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy; he gave his only begotten Son to shed his blood on the cross to pay for all our past, present and future sins; therefore, let us forgive our trespassers, disregard their negative comments and focus entirely on Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, let us not listen to idle words of idle people, but rather focus on being spiritual, walk in the shoes of Jesus Christ, know that we are his followers, his disciples faced persecutions, trails and martyrdom; if we follow him, we take upon his sufferings as well; but he is faithful and will not leave us alone; therefore, let us not pay attention to what enemies do, fear or worry about what we cannot control physically; but leave all battles in the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, he is with us at all times and will not leave us alone in the hands of our enemies, but already fought our battles, we are victorious forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

ISSUES OF OUR HEARTS II!
Brethren, whenever we show kindness to desperate people, make them feel comfortable, loved and accepted by society, our kind gestures towards them are not done in vain, all gracious attitudes are recorded against our names in the heavens book of records; regardless of what type of goodwill we extend to other people, whether we do goodwill in forms of liquid papers, meals, shelters or clothing; our generosities goes directly to our Father, and his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; and he will repay us back again with multiple blessings from on high: what an awesome Father!; reference, book of Matthew 25:35-40.
As we all know, when our Father speaks his words, he sanctions, fulfills whatever he declares; he is not a liar, whatever he says he will do, he does; we read in the scriptures of how he interacted with his servants, prophets and beloved children in past generations; he never changes his words, as other people conceive that times has changed on earth, technologies are advancing, therefore, our Father compromised his statutes; no, not so brethren!; whatever, our Father planned to do, he did already through the sufferings, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to make things easier for humanity to approach the throne of grace, walk in his righteousness into eternity: our Father never compromised himself, he is the same Father of yesterday, today and forevermore shall be; therefore, let us take his words seriously act upon them, for the sake of his obedience and watch him bring to pass promises of his words.
Our Father is not a respecter of man; from generations to generations, he looks upon the hearts of children of men, searches for hearts that are pure before him; for example, it was the heart issue that made Abel's offerings acceptable before him, but Cain's offerings was rejected; why, because he was selfish and put his desires first over his generosity to honor our Father, he did not offer the best of his handiwork to him, his offerings was rejected by our Father; therefore, whatever we do, let us do all things carefully with our Father in our thoughts; do our best for him, ask ourselves, in all situations, what will Jesus do?, and do the same things; it is not what we have in mind to do, or do that pleases our Father, it is how we feel about what we have to do, or do; that matters to him most; therefore, our hearts, thoughts and motions are very important when it comes to dealing with our Father; let us be mindful of things of our Father, wholeheartedly through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
At times, we think about ourselves first, before we think about the welfare of other people, but, that is wrong motives; we ought to place other people first in all circumstances, and place ourselves as secondaries; if we serve other people by serving our Father, then it is appropriate to serve them first, for we serve our Father first when we do so: another example of the heart issue was between Jacob and Esau; Esau was a cunning hunter, he woke up in the mornings, and went to the field to hunt for animals, he did not care to serve other people, but cared about his own desires, what he will kill and eat, and wanted to be served by his brother Jacob; on the other hand, Jacob was a plain man, lived in tents, serviceable, hang around the house to help his aged mother to take care of his aged Father; though Esau was the oldest, because he only cared about his meaty desires, he sold his own birthright to Jacob over a bowl of red pottage, (Genesis 25); and our Father favored Jacob more than Esau, because Esau was self-centered; for, "As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated." (Romans 9:13); therefore, let us please our Father by pleasing other people, in all that we do; let us put him first as we serve and place other people needs first above our own needs and desires, our Father sees all things of the earth; he knows our frame of minds, reads contents of our innermost spirits, and repays us according to our attitudes and behaviors: it is written in book of Luke 6:38; "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."; therefore, let us deep into treasures of our hearts, give to the poor and needy, homeless, widows and widowers, strangers and orphanages, charities, goodwill, for all these kind gestures are not done in vain, we do them to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; you may say, I do not not want to deplete my treasures, brethren, believe the word of our Father; we will not lose anything, but rather gain more treasures and favors from our Father, his eyes will be upon our lives, and will delight himself in our souls, love us, and bless our children from generations to generations; this are promises of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, if we give whole hardheartedly, invest in other people, we invest in our own lives, our Father makes the returns, he replenishes us with abundance of blessings, to repay for what was given away, so we continue to do his goodwill; for, it is written in book of Eccle. 11:1; "Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days."; therefore, let us be encouraged to do goodwill, let our hearts show that we really love our Father as he loves us; that he gave his only begotten Son, to suffer, die on the cross to take away our iniquities, rose up again from the dead, to grant us salvation, grace and life everlasting; what an amazing love of our Father; therefore, let us also show same love to our fellow brothers and sisters, whether in difficult situations or not; for our Father is love in himself, and we cannot be parts of him, but without love for one another, we break the chains of love, when we see one another fall but does not feel their pains and sorrows to offer them the help needed to sustain lives; therefore, when we give out to goodwill, from treasures of our hearts, let us do so with agape love, not worry about what we might have given away; they are not completely lost, Jesus gives back those blessings in multiple portions, the very moment we give out, he replenishes right away; therefore, let us have faith in him, there shall be showers of blessings coming our ways very, very soon; and hereafter, in heavenly places forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

TRUST IN THE LORD!
Brethren, as believers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let us have greater confidence in him, regardless of negative circumstances bewailing our souls, we need to assure ourselves that he is right within our circumstances at all times, and will never leave us alone; rely on him everyday for victories and protections against enemy forces, and for providence on planet earth; confine in him, all secrets of our hearts, let him know what our troubles, fears and anxieties are, he is the only one who can hear our heartful secrets, label them as confidential, keep them in sacred files, correct all abnormalities of our lives, and grant peace and joy everlasting; let us depend and believe in his words, expect that whatever he promised to do in our lives, he will do at appointed times, and wait upon our Father, the giver of all things, he will surely bless his children, grant them joy and peace everlasting.
The big bang is, regardless of what comes across our pathways in life; if we place our confidence in our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; we will overcome all circumstances, no matter how bad situations maybe, he will strengthen our souls; after we wither the storms and are proven as true and faithful children, he sends down his blessings upon our lives: many times, he allows the enemy to bombard his beloved children with sufferings, test their faiths to see their standings in the faith of his righteousness; therefore, believers go through storms of life, furnace of fires and deadly spiritual warfare before they are blessed by our Father; however, through believers sufferings, our Father does not allow the enemy to destroy their souls, but turns his face away, allows the enemy to wound their souls with his weapons of warfare, then he grants victories, heals their afflictions; after a while, he rebukes the enemy on their behalves, heals their wounded souls and settles them firmly with blessings in his righteousness forevermore; therefore, regardless of what maybe going on in our lives negatively; let us have patience and peace within our souls, know that nothing can prevail against our lives so far as Jesus Christ is concern; continue to pray fervently, read the scriptures, trust in our Father by trusting in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; know that every deadly weapon from the enemy thrown against believers will not be able to destroy them, but will go back to their senders; for, we are more than conquerors through the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ forevermore.
Case in point, before our Father blesses his children, he positions and secures them whereby they cannot lose his blessings to the enemy and continues to replenish his blessings regardless of what the world economy or stock markets fluctuations maybe; he continues to prosper them, their wealth and riches never runs out, they are forevermore; nor have they any worries regarding the world of scarcity; regardless of what maybe going on economically in the world of darkness, also, we live in a seasonal world, there are times and seasons for everything under the earth; therefore, no matter what maybe our setbacks presently, in due times, they will pass away!; let us be strong in the might of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; for, .... weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. (Psalm 30:5); let us not allow the enemy to take away peaces and joys from our hearts, but rather pray, stay calmly, trust and believe in our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, read his words, sing songs of praises to him, be strengthen in faith, wait upon him; he is faithful forevermore.
Dearly beloved, the season of restorations is with humanity; our Father is calling his children to came back to him and receive everlasting blessings; therefore, let us not wait much longer, but come to Jesus Christ, purge the filthiness of our hearts, receive salvation, grace and showers of blessings forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

ARE WE READY? LET'S GO!
Brethren, as believers who are called out of darkness into marvelous lights of our Father, to spread the good news of salvation, grace and life everlasting; let us not grow weary with well doings, relax and procrastinate what we have do now for Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; the time to do his will is ripen!; at times, we feel weary, tired, faint and ready to give up on our callings, let us not give up on Jesus Christ; the devil is a liar! but rather, pray for more anointing of the Holy Spirit, have faith and be strengthen by his might, we may reach out to fellow brethren for spiritual supports such as prayers and ministrations of encouragements; for, we have to do what we have to do, and the field of harvest is ready, awaiting believers to step up into the field, and reap the harvest into his barns of salvation and eternity; are we ready? let's go!
Case in point, if we watch television media, listen to radio stations news all over the world, there are phenomenons going on around the whole world, wars and rumors of wars, famines and pestilences, droughts and flooding, earthquakes and tornadoes, we see signs of devastation everywhere; souls are spiritually hungry and thirsty for answers to questions that they cannot understand, they are not sure of what is going on, and what to do, to receive contentment within emptiness of their souls, and are using wrong motives to run after things of this world, to satisfy themselves; whereas, solutions to problems of this world are within his words; therefore, let us search the scriptures; for, we are within appropriate times, to reach out to lost souls roaming aimlessly in the world full of darkness, preach the truthfulness of the gospel, to enlighten their ways from darkness into the last boat of salvation, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; for the world is ready to receive solutions to whatever is going on negatively all over planet earth: as believers, we have the keys to help unlock doors of solutions to problems of this world; therefore, let us not lose our keys, but use them to solve problems of this world; there is so much to do in the vineyard of Jesus Christ, but not enough workers to do his will; therefore, let us do our best to serve him as we serve humanity, pray for more spiritual strengths to persevere and forbear through all hardships and finish our callings successfully, receive crown of glories and life everlasting.
For it is written in book of Luke 10:2; ....The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.: therefore, let us move forward with the plans of the Lord of the harvest, with Jesus Christ by our sides, without fears of persecutions, reproaches or martyrdom, but stand firmly on what we believe, what Jesus established during his ministry on earth, do his will; for, there are earthly and eternal rewards for all those who answer the call of Jesus Christ, preach the gospel, serve him, lead souls into salvation, and life everlasting;
Dearly beloved, we hear preachers of the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, beckon souls to come unto him at all times; if we have not yet receive him into our hearts as Lord and Savior, now it the time to come to him; let us not wait much longer, time is running out; Jesus is coming back very soon, sooner than we anticipated, and our souls maybe lost in damnation; no matter what we did in the past or are doing currently, let us be reminded that Jesus already paid the price for our sins with his shed blood on the cross, there is no condemnation in him, but salvation, grace and life everlasting; Amen and Amen!

Brethren, as humans living in a fallen world, many times, we form opinions to criticize and label one another; though we portray these ungodly attributes against our fellow brothers and sisters; there are always motes in our own eyes; for it is written in book of Romans 3:10; there is none righteous, no, not one: therefore, before we pass judgement on other people, let us double check ourselves first, to see if there are skeletons inside our closets, clean them out completely, then, of course we may stand perfectly to :judge one another; for it is written in book of Matthew 7:4; Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?; in other words, if we have no sin at all, then we are in perfect positions to pass judgement on sinful individuals;
Case in point, the scribes and Pharisees brought an adulterous woman caught in the act unto Jesus, to see what he will say; for in the law of Moses, such behaviors are abominable and are punishable by stoned to death; however, Jesus knew their minds, that they are up to tempt him, to have causes to accuse him; therefore, Jesus stood down, with his fingers wrote on the ground, pretended as though he heard them not; however, they did not leave him alone, but continued to inquire about what to do about the situation though they knew what to do; when they continued to ask him, he lifted up himself said unto them, "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." (John 8:7); however, since no one was without sin, but were all convicted by their own conscience, they left one by one from the eldest to the youngest; Jesus release the woman, saying, go, and sin no more; therefore, no matter what our ungodliness maybe, in the presence of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, there are many more chances with him to walk in godliness, he already suffered, died and rose again from the dead, to pay for our present, past and future sins; there is no condemnation to those which are in him, but rather salvation, grace and life everlasting.
Though the law was given to Moses as statutes of guidance for Israelite, it was given to the whole world; our Father did not change any of his laws, they are still to be obeyed; however, what he did for humanity was, since his ways of atonement of sins were too hectic for humanity to perform, he decided to simplify the processes of atonement, once and for all, by sacrificing his only begotten son, on the cross as a sacrificial lamb to take away the sins of the world in other for humanity to be able to approach his throne of grace directly without priesthood mediators, whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for atonement of sins, to seek for his mercies and forgiveness of sins.
Whenever we judge one another, we speak evil of the law and condemn the law; how? we point accusing fingers at the statutes of our Father, and condemn his statutes that they are not worthy to be obeyed and if we condemn the law, then we place ourselves in positions whereby we ought to be perfect human beings to judge one another; but if we were born in sins, are not perfect in natures, and ought to obey the laws ourselves; if we condemn the law, we place ourselves in same category as Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, who was born of the Spirit and had no sin in him at all; for it is written in book of Matthew 5:17; "Think not that I come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulful".: therefore, he did not condemn the law, but came to fulfill the law; he is the only one that summarized the whole law into two parts; saying, (i) Firstly, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: (ii) Secondly, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:29-31); therefore, our Father is the only one that gave his statutes through Moses to humanity, Jesus Christ is the only perfect one that can alter his own statutes, and he is able to grant salvation to sinful souls, or to condemn them in hell's damnation; as believers we may voice our concerns positively or negatively against issues but with love and respect for other people opinions, and our responsibilities are to pray for the Holy Spirit to enlighten pathways of lost souls roaming around in darkness of this world to draw closer to Jesus Christ; and leave all judgments to him; there is a judgement day set aside when all souls will face judgement; therefore, let us not judge one another, but walk in love, dwell in love, show love and live peaceably with all men. .
Dearly beloved, we all know how fallen this present world is, until we sleep in death, we do not have choices but to dwell among generation of waywardness; we cannot remove ourselves from the world because of negative behaviors of men, live in bubbles and do not interact with humanity; but we can pray, voice out our concerns in positive ways, and leave all matters in the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, if we are over burden with troubles of this world, let us seek the face of our Father thorough Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, he already taken care of all troubles of this fallen world, it is only a matter of time, he will come back to earth soon to receive his believers unto himself forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) HOSEA 6:1-3
(1) Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
(2) After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
(3) Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
LET US GO BACK HOME!
Brethren, our Father is calling all children of the earth that have gone astray like lost sheep in the world of darkness, to come unto him: saying, before I allowed beast of the field to devour you, now I am ready to save your souls, heal your wounded spirits; I chastised you because of your trespasses against me, but I have forgiven you through the blood of Jesus Christ; I will pamper and settle you with love, compassion, goodness and mercies; for it is written in book of Deuteronomy 32:39; "See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand."; therefore, no matter where we are, or what we are doing, or done in past, our Father is searching all souls to come back to him; for, he loves his children dearly but he is not a respecter of men, and will chastise those he loves: therefore, he chastises his children to give them awakening spirits to know that they have gone astray from him, and to bring them back in fellowship with him again.
Therefore, regardless of our past, present or future negative behaviors, our Father is merciful, he does not desire any soul to perish in hell's damnation, but rather all souls repent from going astray, come to him, have salvation and eternity; and for that reason, he sent his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior into the world, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life: not only that, but he allowed him, to suffer for our sins so we do not have to suffer any longer in this world, slaughtered on the cross as a sacrificial lamb to take away the sins of the world, died but rose up again from dead, tore off the vail to the temple of grace to allow humanity to enter into the presence of our Father through prayers, supplictions and reading of his words; and he is our advocate, siting on the right hand of our Father, pleading our cases before the throne of grace; what an amazing grace!; therefore, when our Father chastises his children, and they cry out unto him; after awhile, his hands of mercies revives them, resurrects their wounded souls back up from distress and agonies, heal their wounded scars, nourishes them with his goodness and mercies and allow them to dwell in his presence as sheep of his pastures forevermore; then they will know to give themselves totally to him, follow his ways of righteousness, have salvation peace and life everlasting.
For our Father is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy; therefore, after we might have gone astray from him, suffered awhile, he shines his lights of mercies upon our souls, for, he feels our negative emotions when we suffer from his own hands of chastisements, therefore, he withdraws his whipping hands, turns around heals our wounded souls, pacifies our souls with his goodness and mercies, blessings and favors, in such a way that the world will see his handiwork in our lives and give him all glories forevermore; therefore, regardless of what our setbacks maybe; let us know that Jesus Christ knows about all things of both heaven and the earth; the question we need to ask ourselves are; what and why have we gone astray from him?; if we can answer those questions truthfully, and are on wrong pathways of life, it is time to make turns around; come unto Jesus Christ and he will make all things perfectly again by his saving grace; however, do not get me wrong, not all sufferings are chastisements from our Father, some trails are from the enemy of our souls; at times, believers go through sufferings because of their righteousness in our Father, Job was a perfect example of how believers can be righteous and still go through trails and tribulations; therefore, if there are any setbacks in our lives currently, regardless of what reasons behind our negative situations, let us have faith in our Father through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, exercise patience, pray, read the scriptures, trust in him, to have mercy and bring our souls out of our predicaments, grant us joy and peace everlasting.
Dearly beloved, at times, our Father allows his beloved children to suffer, die from themselves, and be buried in spiritual pits of despairs and agonies with their negative behaviors, so that Jesus Christ can transform their lives in pits of transformations, after transformations processes are completed, he resurrects their souls back up again from under his shadow of rests with newer spirits, powers and positive attitudes, make them useful vessels of golds and silvers, set aside for his mighty works on earth and thereafter in heavenly places; the wonders of our Father! therefore, if we are in any type of trials or tribulations currently; let us think good thoughts about ourselves, trust in our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, resist not his hands of transformations or chastisements; for those he loves he chastises, transforms, to make them fit perfectly into his purposes on earth; though chastisements and transformation processes maybe too harsh on souls, they are for their own good, if they exercise patience, after they might have suffered awhile, they will resurrect again with spiritual powers, thanksgivings, praises, and glorification of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, let us pray fervently in our trails or tribulations, trust the master's plans without wavering in faiths, know that he knows exactly what he is doing with our souls, believe that by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, we are more than conquerors, have peace within our innermost spirits that breakthroughs are already given by his grace forever and evermore. Wait upon the LORD! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) LUKE 12:8-10
(8) Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:
(9) But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.
(10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.
WATCH WHAT YOU SAY, HE CAN HEAR YOU!
Brethren, to receive salvation, one ought to confess with their own mouths that Jesus is Lord, and believe in their hearts that he suffered for iniquities he did not committed, shed his blood, died on the cross, went into the grave, on the third day, he rose up again from the death, ascended into the heavens, sited on right hand of our Father as an advocate for humanity, and will come back again very soon to receive his believers unto himself in the firmament of his glory, to live with him forever and evermore.
It is different to accept, believe and confess who Jesus Christ is; but it is another thing altogether to preach his words; either way, we are on rightful pathways in the faith of his righteousness, and we have nothing to worry about in this world of darkness; however, if we refuse to establish him before our fellow brethren; maybe for various reasons; either we are not sure of our faiths in him, and feels uncomfortable to talk about him as the Son of our Father, who suffered, died on the cross, rose up again to take away the iniquities of this world, and currently doing miracles through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, and will do more for his believers in his second coming to planet earth; all these attitudes are perfectly alright in the eyes of humanity; but from our Father;s own perspectives, we are ungrateful believers; and if that happens, the angels of our Father, cannot boast before him our worthiness, when they give their reports about what we did while on planet earth; for it is written Mark 8:38; "Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."; therefore, regardless of how societies of this world rejects believers; let us not worry, fear or be dismayed; Jesus Christ does not reject anyone in this world, but rather yearns that all souls should come to repentance, accept him as Lord and Savior, receive salvation and life everlasting;
If we are known of our Father, and he knows us as his children, listens to our utterances at all times, let us mind our spoken words, so we do not utter negative words against the Holy Spirit, which is the third person of the Trinity, our Father Almighty, Son, Jesus Christ and the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; for souls that refuse to have respect for the third person of our Father, the Holy Spirit, in an insults, reproaches, contemptible ways or lacking of reverence of who he is, as the third person of our Father, and was with him during creation; those souls are not respectful of our Father either, and their sinful attitudes towards the Holy Spirit, will never be forgiven in this lifetime and hereafter: if we portray these sinful attributes, ignorantly, but regretted our actions, pray for forgiveness; may Jesus Christ have mercy upon our souls, overlook our trespasses, forgive them by his sacred blood shed on the cross, and continue to allow the Holy Spirit to mold us into useful vessels for his glory.
Brethren, we all have Spirits of our Father within our mortal bodies from birth, that is our physical and emotional mechanisms of our mortal bodies; however, the Holy Spirit which Jesus Christ sent down on to his believers on the day of Pentecost, (Acts 2); is a different Spirit, which was given as a companion to anoint, empower, comfort, teach believers all things and reprove them of their sins; he is a real person of the third Trinity; therefore, let us have respect for him, not grieve him, with our negative actions and utterances; but rather allow him to groom and grow our lives into fruitful trees of the vineyard of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; when he comes to reside in our innermost spirits, the Holy Spirit never leaves us alone, but faithfully guides our pathways in his righteousness into life everlasting..
Dearly beloved, let us be bold and brave in what we believe, walk as princes and princesses in the faith of his righteousness; for, we are not of this world, our permanent home is with Jesus Christ in heavenly places, we are on transitions on earth everyday into our eternal homes on high; therefore, let us not worry about what comes against us negatively in this world of darkness; there is nothing new under the Sun, all things has happened on earth before our generation, Jesus Christ changed all situations around for his glorification, he will do the same for those who trust and believe in him in this generation; therefore, if we are in negative situations today, let us not fear or be dismayed, all is not lost, there is hope in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, everything is already taken care of by his death on the cross and resurrection from the graveyard, we just have to pray, trust and believe in him, all things will be well again by his grace and peace forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
