(KJV.) EPHESIANS 6:5-8
(5) Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
(6) Not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
(7) With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
(8) Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
LET'S TRUST AND OBEY
Brethren, this world is full of servants, each and every soul at one point and time, from the time we wake up in the morning until bedtime, serves one another; regardless of what we do, for our own selves, one another, at home, secular world, in the body of Christ, it does not matter what we do, we are servers; for example, we serve our own bodies, when we take care of ourselves, sleep and eat well, cleanse and nourish our bodies, keep members in holiness, (Romans 6:13); we serve our houses when we clean up, give away, throw out things that are not useful, but cluttering our space; we serve our children, family members, when we cook meals, launder clothes, pay bills, tuitions, hospital visits, etc.; in the secular world, we serve one another, work together, reach a common goals, achieve greater profits; we serve in the world, however, who owns this world?, my answer is, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior owns the world; indirectly or indirectly, we serve him even in the secular environment; in the body of Christ, we serve Jesus Christ directly, while we serve as ushers, choristers, deacons, pastors, preachers, bishops, etc.; regardless of where we serve, what we do in this world, we are servers, serve one another, serve our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
If we serve Jesus Christ, regardless of what we do in this world, then, let us do what we do for him, with greater strength, utilize our gifts and talents, to maximize capabilities, receive earthly, eternal blessings. (Colossians 3:24): for whatever good thing we do in this world, we will receive measures of good blessings, whether believers or unbelievers.
Brethren, let us serve Jesus Christ with all our minds, souls, bodies; without grudgings, complains, reluctances, with perseverances, run the race that we may receive the prize. (Hebrew 12:1). Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ACTS 8:59-60
(59) And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
(60) And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
LET'S REVIVE OUR HEARTS
Brethren, there is a master key which souls have in their spirits; this key, if utilised unlocks doors to the throne of grace, to turn away the wrath of our Father, receive forgiveness, grace, goodness mercies; this key, has being in existence from generations to present generation, used by mostly servants of our Father, and even idol worshippers used the same logic, to called upon their gods; what is this master key?; this master key is prayer, what is prayer, prayer is communication with our Father through the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, it is an act, form of worship, to confess, entreat, adore, petition, supplicate and give thanks to our Father: do these sound familiar to anyone?; check these out!; King David prayed fervently, to glorify our Father with praises and adoration, when Nathan the prophet spoke covenanted blessings upon David's household; refer to 2 Samuel 18:29; King Solomon also prayed to our Father after the Temple was completed, refer to 1 King 8; King Hezekiah prayed wholeheartedly when Isaiah the prophet came to him with bad news, to get ready to die, our Father, heard his prayers, had mercy on him, gave him fifteen more years to live, refer to 2 Kings 20; Nehemiah fasted, wept prayed for mercy of our Father to build up the broken wall of Jerusalem, refer to Nehemiah 1; Job prayed fervently when evil came upon him and his household, refer to the book of Job; David prayed fervently, wrote songs of praises and adorations in the book of Psalms; Daniel prayed while in the lions den, our Father closed the mouths of the lions, they could not devour him, refer to the book of Daniel 6; he prayed fervently for departing from precepts and judgments of our Father, refer to Daniel 9; Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior prayed fervently in the garden of Gethsemane, when he saw what was to come upon his life, refer to Matthew 26; prayed again for his enemies, before his death upon the cross of Calvary, refer to Luke 23:34; therefore, believers, let us pray, whether we suffer or not suffering, when we pray everyday, we strengthen ourselves through the spirits against spiritual attacks from world of darkness; let us pray, for prayer works; though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through our Father to the pulling down of strong holds; (2 Corinthians 10:4); therefore, as believers, let us pray for ourselves, other people, the body of Christ, benefits of humanity, nations, neighborhoods, and for the peace of this world of darkness.
In this chapter of today's text, Apostle Stephen was persecuted, defended himself, spoke against their evil ways, when they heard his reproves, they gnashed upon him with their teeth, but being fully charged with Holy Ghost anointing, Stephen looked up firmly into heaven, saw the glory of our Father, and Jesus standing on the right hand of our Father, open up his mouth, said, "I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of our Father.", (Acts 7:56), his enemies cried out with a loud voice, closed their ears, pursued him with one accord, cast him out of the city, and stoned him; while they stoned him, he called upon the name of our Father, saying, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge, And when he had said this, he fell asleep."; read this carefully, Stephen prayed for his enemies, at the point of death, same way Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior prayed for his enemies at the point of his death upon the cross; as believers of twenty-first century, can we pray for our enemies when being persecuted, provoked, reproached and at the point of martyrdom?, this is a point to ponder on!
Dearly beloved, let us pray everyday, have communicable relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, when we pray, he hears and answers our prayers at his own appointed times, not ours, there are certain prayers that are answered right away, because of situations prevailing against us, however, at times, answers to many prayers get delayed, reasons best known to him, regardless, he does answer prayers, his answers to certain prayers, maybe "Yeses", or "Nos"; be patient, allow our Father to take absolute control of our situations, for his glorification forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV,) JAMES 2:4-6
(4) Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
(5) Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
(6) But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
LET'S GET TOGETHER, DO HIS WILL!
Brethren, as believers, if we say that we are saved, sanctified, walk in godliness, have faith in Jesus Christ, yet have no respect for one another, we deceive ourselves, the truth is not in us; regardless of who we are in the body of Christ, if we claim to have the spirit that rose up Jesus Christ from the dead within our hearts, then each and everyone of us are acceptable, redeemed as children of our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; outwardly, the world may view some believers as unintellectual without affluent statuses, because they chose to forsake the world, took up their crosses, follow Jesus Christ; however, inwardly, because of their callings and anointings, they are powerful; however, many times, Jesus Christ, humbles certain chosen vessels to points whereby, they do not have choices but focus on his will; these people are not fanatics; therefore, whether saved or unsaved in this world; let us not be judgmental in other people affairs, without knowing truthfulness of matters, why they are in such and such predicaments, instead, as believers, let do our best, pray for them, if possible reach out and touch them, minister, encourage, good faith into their hearts.
As true Christians, we are to accept people from all walks of life, view humanity with perspectives of Jesus Christ, we are lights of the world, and cannot hide from darkness of this world, if we are lights of this world, then let us shine our lights among both saved and unsaved, open up doors of our hearts unto people, accept them for who they are; Jesus said, Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28); Jesus refers to humanity, everyone, the poor, needy, adulterous, murderers, armed robbers etc., Jesus is not resisting, casting any soul away from receiving salvation; he shed his blood, died on the cross, rose up again from the dead, to blot away iniquities of this world, on behalves of humanity, not just saved people alone, matter of fact, he said, "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." (Luke 5:32); therefore, his arms are open to receive any soul who will come unto him for salvation, free grace, everlasting life; therefore, saving souls is not over yet, until Jesus Christ says that it is over, done with, the poor we resist today, maybe beneficial in our lives tomorrow, who knows, what Jesus will do to change their lives for better in the future; refer to the story of the rich man and the beggar named, (Luke 16:19-31): therefore, let us cast our differences aside, see ourselves as one family, have a common ground, united we stand, divided we fall; and we will not fall apart, but rather unite in Christ Jesus!
In today's chapter, Apostle Paul wrote to the Colossians, not to discriminate, against poor people,
be partial, judge people with mindsets of evil; rather, treat people fairly, equally regardless of who they are, their statuses in this world; he went on to say, that our Father chose poor of this world, rich in faith, made them heirs of the kingdom which he promised to them that love him; therefore, let us not resist, demean, oppress, suppress, mistreat poor people; give preferences to the affluent, intellect, becuase of who they are in this world; for if we discriminate, prejudice against the poor, we misrepresent Jesus Chirist, are not true Chistians; for Jesus Christ is for humanity, saved and unsaved, the same, until judgment day, when he will separate the chaff from the wheat, burn the chaft with fire. (Matthew 3:12); therefore, let us accomodate people regardless of who they are, where they came from, genders, and colors; we are all children of the same heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, because beliervers are dead to flesh, their lives are within the body of Christ, in our Father; therefore, let us not separate ourselves from the poor, unsaved people, who need our gifts, talents to make it through this life; rather be concern, involve ourselves in negative situations all over the world; for there are eternal rewards stored up in heaven for those who fear, obey, do the will of Jesus Christ, no good deeds are done in vain on earth: at the appointed time of our Father, Jesus Christ our Lord, Savior, rewarder, will appear in his firmament of glory, true believers will meet with him in the skies, receive crown of glories, live with him forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(12) Put on, therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
(13) Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
(14) And above all these things put on Charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
SURELY, BE THERE SOMEDAY!
Brethren, as chosen people of our Father, let us exemplify ourselves with his attributes, be holy as he is holy; (1 Peter 1:15); (Ephesians 1:4); love one another as he loves humanity, (John 13:34-35); be merciful as he is merciful, (Luke 6:36), tenderhearted, (Ephesians 4:32); show compassion on others, (Matthew 20:34); outreach to the poor and needy, give unto others, and it shall be given to you, (Luke 6:38); be submissive, bare significant characteristics, have patience, tolerate people, without spirits of resentments, perseverance, endure sufferings, forgive other's faults, (Matthew 6:14); and to secure ourselves in his love of our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let us be lovable, be kind, determine to understand other people point of views amicably, live peaceably with all men, (Psalm 34:14),
To be good Christians, let us have spiritual mindsets, for to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. (Romans 8:6): if we are spiritually minded, we live in Jesus Christ, and his blood covers our sins, after we sleep in death, on the day of reconciliation, we will rise up again to meet with him in the skies, live forevermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ACTS 5:1-3
(1) But a certain man named Ananias, with Saphira his wife, sold a possession,
(2) And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
(3) But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine, heart, to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
DECEPTION ON DISPLAY
Brethren, whether anyone believes it or not, there is an enemy in this world, whose goal is to use anyone, through anything possible to, first of all, do evil works, thereafter, destroy that soul, and unless we made aware of his craftiness, how do we know to protect our minds from fallen into his temptations?; many people do not want to talk about Satan, saying, "we do not want to give him any glory,"; but the question is, who can give Satan back his glory?, when his glory was turned to shame, when he lost the battle against our Father in heaven and was thrown down to earth with his demonic angels?; therefore, let us educate one another, regarding who he is, among the darkness of this world, in other to discern his dubious and trickish ways to destroy souls. after he uses them to destroy one another.
Remember the fall of humanity came by Satan deception to Adam and Eve, who believe him, ate the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden: refer to Genesis chapter 3: beware!, it was Satan who tempted Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior on three different scenarios, after Jesus fasted for forty days and forty nights in the wilderness, refer to Matthew 4; Jesus overcame Satan temptations by quoting him the scriptures, believers or unbelievers, Satan is looking to destroy as many souls that he can destroy before Jesus comes back to earth the second time; beware!: it was Satan who put into the heart of Judas Iscariot to betray Jesus unto his enemies, refer to John chapter 13, first of all, Judas thought evil against Jesus to betray him for money, after Satan infiltrated his mind with evil works, refer to John 13:2; secondly, Satan entered into Judas, convinced him to carry out his evil works, refer to John 13:27; therefore, let us be careful what we think about, if we think evil thoughts, chances are we will yield ourselves to do evil works after Satan infiltrates our hearts; it does not matter who we are in the body of Christ, what spiritual, intellectual, theological levels of attainments, Satan can tempt anyone on any spiritual level; he tempted Jesus Christ, after fasting for forty days and forty nights, beware!
I called the above text, deception on display; a certain man called Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, was punished by death, after they lied to the Holy Ghost in the presence of the disciples: after the ascension of Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost anointing was given as promised to the disciples, refer to John 14:16, Acts 2: the anointing grace was upon the disciples, the community in which they were at that time, witnessed how greatly the disciples were used by the resurrection power of the Holy Ghost, and supported them; many people sold their possessions, brought the proceeds, laid them down at the apostles feet: Satan entered into the hearts of Ananias and Sapphira, to lie to the Holy Ghost; no one asked them for any contribution, but they sold their land voluntarily and kept back part of the price of the land; which I belive was alright to keep, if they had not connived, conspired, cooperated secretly to lie about the proceeds to the Holy Ghost; they had good intentions, but their hearts, motives were infiltrated by Satan and that caused them their lives; for after they lied to the Holy Ghost, kept back part of the proceeds from the sold property, confirmed their lies in front of the disciples, instantanuously, they both fell down, died at the apostles feet, carried out, buried one after the other; therefore, let us not allow negative thoughts take control of our mindsets to do evil works, cast away infiltration spirits of deceptions, it is of Satan, think positively, have the mindset of Jesus Christ, be generous, endeavor to do the will of Jesus Christ wholeheartedly, be truthful in all our ways; beware of Satan, the father of deception!
As believers, it is our duties and responsibilities to seek the welfare of others, for the progress of the body of Christ, in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, we need to get involve in communities where we reside, join others to reach out to the world, care for people we categorize as poor, needy, homeless, widows/widowers, help those who cannot help themselves, be compassionate toward the sufferings; for this is the will of our Father, and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, at certain points of our lives, believers will go through temptations seasonally, regardless of who we are in the body of Christ; therefore, let us be readily prepared, sharpen our mindsets with words of our Father, pray fervently, that when we are being tempted of the enemy to walk in ungodliness, the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit will prompt our spirits to resist the devil, and he will fleee away, in Jesus Christ, we are victorious forever and evermore; however, let us beware of Satan, the Father of Deception! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) EPHESIANS 2:4-5
(4) But God, who is rich in mercy for his great love wherewith he loved us,
(5) Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
LOVE TOUGHLIGHTS ARE BURNING
Brethren, because of our Father's love, his goodness and mercies, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, grace is available to everyone who will come unto Jesus Christ, receive him into their hearts as Lord and Savior, have salvation and life everlasting; (John 3:16).
From creation to present times, the love of our Father towards his children never fails but endures forever; by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ: his love exemplifies through compassion, healings, protections, victories, goodness and mercies, coupled up with resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, believers are equip to fight the good fight of faith into life everlasting, receive heavenly rewards of everlasting golden crowns; because of his love through blood grace, we gain sonships as Jesus Christ, and are no longer bastards in world of darkness, but joint heirs with him in eternity; because of his love, adversely, believers receive chasticements, whenever they go astray from him, in other to bring them back, align them with his purposes.
Regardless of what our shortcoming may be against our Father, after chaseticements, because of his love, his bowels yearns greatly when we are in pains, turns around and wipes away our tears, sadness, embraces us into his arms of love, pacifies our souls with his goodness and mercies that endures forever; therefore, when in sufferings, let us endure sufferings, that we may get to know, fully understand his intended purposes of our lives, while in sufferings, pray, fellowship with him, do his will, walk in his righteousness into life everlasting: regardless of circumstances prevailing against our souls; it is not over, until Jesus Christ says it is over; therefore, when in sufferings, let us rejoice, be exceedingly glad, sing songs of praises, give thanks to our Father, nothing is greater than his love towards his children, with his love, believers are more than victorious no matter what situations previals against them, they are victorious through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forevermore.
First of all, everything our Father created was done out of love; love is an essential attribute of our Father, the fundamental foundation of who he is; what he has done in the past, doing currently, and will do for humanity, is based upon his love; therefore, as his children, let us love one another as he loves us, if we have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of this world, now is the time to do so; let us not waist time any longer to come unto him, receive him into our hearts, allow him to work good works through our lives; receive his blesssings and hereafter, be joint heirs with him in life everlasting.
Dearly beloved, believers are blessed and highly favored of Jesus Christ; though we were dead in sins, when Jesus rose up again from the death, we rose up together with him, and someday will sit together in heavenly places and judge the whole world; (1 Corinthians 6:2); therefore, as saved by grace, let us also show mercy on others; share our earthly possessions, thoughts and wisdom with others, for when we sleep in death, all these gifts will perish with the wind, we still have to answer to Jesus Christ what we did with those gifts; however, what does it profit any man under the sun? this is a point to ponder on!; therefore, let us love and care for one another through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(1) I exhort, therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
(2) For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
(3) For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour.
LET'S DO SOMETHING
Brethren, as believers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, we have duties and responsibilities to perform in this world; therefore, let us not turn deaf ears on what happens in nations, cities and neighborhoods in and around the world; we have to find ways and means to get involve, minister from biblical points of views, voice out our concerns, find solutions to problems, involve ourselves with how to make this world a better place to reside, step up physically to help those in calamities, seek the welfare of humanity, whether believers or unbelievers.
For, our callings are not to serve Jesus Christ within the body of Christ alone, but to also serve him around the world; be good Samaritans to people in sufferings. (Luke 10:30-37); show that we care about other people besides ourselves; it is our prerogatives to get involve with issues of this world, use every spiritual gift to help solve problems of this world, save souls for Christendom; why? very simple answer, before Jesus ascended into heavenly places, he commanded his disciples, saying, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. (Matthew 28:19-20): when Jesus was on earth, he thought believers kingdom words, that they may minister the same to others, act upon his words, that others may act upon theirs; it a chain of command, let us pass on the touch lights throughout the world, love for one another, mentally, spiritually support one another, motivate, inspire, encourage, uplift, pray for the welfare of all nations of the world, demonstrate attributes of Jesus Christ through our actions and behaviors for the world to perceive that we are called by his name, that they may follow us into his lights of glory.
In the above text, Apostle Paul encourages believers to intercede on behalf of humanity, especially leaders in positions of authorities, that they do the will of our Father with humbleness, meekness, trustworthiness, truthfulness without pridefulness, arrogancies, to deliberate on worthy courses, and seek the welfare of humanity; this is the will of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, regardless of what goes on in this world, Jesus is the winner of all souls; if he is the winner, we belong to him, we are winners as well; therefore, there is nothing to fear in this world, but fully embrace his commandments, follow through his will; at the end of our journey on earth, receive crowns of glories, and joint heirs with him forever and evermore. Let us pray for the peace and stability of the world. Amen and Amen!

(4) When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
WORTHLESS AND POINTLESS
Brethren, since we have being crucified, dead, buried and risen up again with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; let us seek after things pertaining to our final destinies, concentrate our attentions on where we are going to reside forever with Jesus Christ, never allow vanities of this world distract or disrupt, pathways to where we are going to live after this life.
Though our Father blesses his children with earthly possessions to enjoy; let us not focus on our blessings alone, but acknowledge facts that we are blessed of the LORD, praise, worship and give him all the glory; our Father blessed King Solomon, the preacher with wisdom, wealth, riches of this world, King Solomon finally said; .....vanity of vanities; all is vanity. (Eccl.1-2); if we focus on enjoying blessings of our Father, cast Jesus Christ out of our lives, watch out for him to show up at the end of our journeys on earth to usher us either into damnation or eternity; choices are ours to make while still enjoying ourselves on earth.
Believers, we were dead in Christ, to be dead in Christ is to accept facts that our old selves are dead, our true selves are now within his resurrected body with our Father; therefore, though we live on this earth, our spirits already have access to heavenly places and someday, Jesus Christ, who is our source of lives, will show up in the firmament of glory, all eyes will see his glory, and believers will reconcile with him, and partake of his inheritance forevermore.
Dearly beloved, regardless of how we struggle to gain wealth and riches of this world, if we do not accept Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior, walk in his righteousness, trust and believe in him; someday, when we sleep in death, our possessions will not be able to save our souls from damnation, matter of facts, those earthly possessions will corrode with the wind after we pass on; therefore, let us seek first the kingdom of heaven, his righteousness, all things of heaven and earth will be ours forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. JOHN 10:14-16
(14) I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
(15) As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
(16) And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
CARETAKERS, TAKE YOUR CARES
Brethren, as shepherds, anointed men and women of our Father, with spiritual gifts and talents to watch over , look after, guide congregations of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; few questions we need to ask ourselves are as follows; as twenty-first century shepherds; What do we focus on most in our callings? What are on lists of agendas to attend in the body of Christ? What are our motives for service to him? What do we prioritize over his will and purposes? What matters most to Jesus Christ in our ministries?; these are few points to ponder on!
As Shepherds let us have the interest of our congregation members at heart, seek ways and means to pray for them within and without worshipping hours, do outreach, visit the sick at home and in hospitals; for we cannot be sheperds without congregations, our callings are to take care of people first, while Jesus Christ takes care of our needs, let us have mindsets of keeping the souls before his presence, encourage and inspire them to know the essence of worshipping our Father; he is aware of challenges we face in doing his will, and will step into our churches, intervene so long as we call upon his Holy Name, bring our problems before his mercy seat; Jesus understands our warfares against the enemy in other to keep souls coming into his presence; therefore, he will never leave his faithful shepherds alone, without strength to pesevere in prayers, for our Father is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble, (Psalm 46:1); therefore, if our Father be for us, who can come against us? (Romans 8:31); no one! At times, we have to review ourselves to know if we have sidetracked from our duties and responsibilities as chosen servants of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; correct and align ourselves with the Holy Spirit our guidance, do what we have to do faithfully, receive crown of glories in everlasting life.
In the above text, Jesus referred to himself as the good shepherd; a good shepherd is a shepherd who is ethical, with moral standards considering affairs of other people, an enemy of evil works, very compassionate, willing to go above and beyond to help people in sufferings, always ready to sacrifice his needs to make other people comfortable; shepherds, do we possess these attributes? Jesus knows his sheep; are we sociable, lovable, kindhearted towards our congregations menbers? or do we walk away briskly after worship services, ignore people who we shepherd over? let us get more involved with our congregational members, show that we care about them, as we care about them, they will inturn care about us and congregations as well; if we love them, show that we are for them, they will stand together with us during downcasting moments; therefore, let us care for the sheep diligently, this is what our callings are in the body of Christ; though Jesus dead and rose again, ascended into heaven, he is still involve with affiars of souls on earth; for, he is seated on the right hand of our Father, pleading our trespasses before him, that the sheep given unto him but still on earth, walk in his righteousness into life forevermore.
Dearly beloved, you may say that, I am not a shepherd, not called to take care of sheep; wrong, all believers are shepherds over their own callings, if we are called to sing songs of praises in the house of our Father, that requires time and efforts to do the will of Jesus Christ; therefore, let us give our best unto him; likewise, if we are called as ushers, so on and so forth; whatever our callings are in congregations over the world, Jesus requires believers to serve deligently in their callings, for there are greater rewards in heaven awaiting those who served deligently on earth; if we do our best for him on earth, collectively, the body of Christ will attain its potential before second coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to reconcile believers unto himself forever and evermore: therefore, Sherpherds, shine forth! Amen and Amen!

Brethren, as believers, let us pray fervently, trust in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, cast all cares of this life upon him, for cares for our souls: this world is full of troubles, if not another things, it is the other, and there is no peace in this world, the only peace is what Jesus gave before he ascended into heaven, (John 14:27); what we call the peace of this world, does not measure up to what Jesus gave to humanity; that is the peace of knowing who he is, what he did on the cross, doing currently in heavenly places on behalf of humanity; Jesus is the word spoken from the beginning, to create all things of creation, the word later manifested in flesh, preached the kingdom message on earth, at the end of his ministration, suffered for iniquities of humanity, died on the cross, rose up again, blot away the iniquities of humanity, have the keys of hell and death, salvation unto those who will accept him into their hearts as Lord and Savior, seated on the right hand of our Father advocating for those who believe in him, delivering souls in persecution, who would call upon his Holy Name and he is the life everlasting.
Therefore, if we know who he is, who else do we need to know, what else do we need in this world? Nothing else than to lean upon him, Jesus is enough; the true source of life; he can do what no one else can do for our souls both on earth and in heaven: on earth, his spirit germinates the crops that we harvest for food, he is the bread of life, (John 635); his spirits is in the stream of waters, that we drink to quench our thirstiness, (John 4:14); therefore, we can never go hungry or thirsty in Jesus Christ, (Luke 12:24); he can send ravens to feed believers with his own sustenance, he has done it before, (1 King 17:6); when sick, he bear our transgression upon the cross, so that we do not have to bear them ourselves, and by his stripes, we are healed, (1 Peter 2:24); if afflicted, we are healed by his wounded scars; therefore, when we pray for healings, visualize his wounded stripes on the cross, believe that we have received healings, and we are healed, sickness has no power over our bodies, so far as Jesus bloody stripes are concern: we are healed forevermore.
Brethren, if Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, there is nothing to worry about in this world, for he is the true source of creation; all we have to do is to have relationship with him, pray our fears, worries, anxieties, cares unto him; have faith in his righteousness that he knows what to do about our situations, before we pray them unto him; when we bring our prayer requests before him, let us trust him that he has taken control of our situations, wait patiently for him to work things out for our own good, while waiting, praise and thank him for what he has done and receive the end results as desired it is done!: believers, Jesus is faithful, his bowls yearns for the suffering, always available to deliver those who call upon him; if we are in some types of situations, that we think there are no solutions to our predicaments; the devil is a liar!; there is nothing impossible, so far as Jesus Christ is on our sides, we are more than conquerors, victorious by his shed blood on the cross of Calvary, he will show himself mightily to prove to the world that we belong to him; let us have faith in him!
Dearly beloved, Jesus came on earth, experience the world of darkness; he understands entirely what is going on with humanity, that is the major reason why he is seated on the right hand of our Father, to advocate on our behalves; therefore, regardless of what types of predicaments prevails against our souls, whether, lackness of earthly amenities, he will change our sorrows into laughter, our barren lands, into greener grasses, fruitful vegetations and plantations; ailments, into healings and testimonies; joblessness, into open doors, productiveness and business entrepreneurships, matrimonial issues, into love and togetherness, bankruptcies, into millionaires and billionaires; there is nothing impossible with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, let us come unto him with all our problems, be blessed with peace, joy and life forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(1) Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
(2) Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
(3) Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
TOUCH AND AGREE!
Brethren, though believers are saved, sanctified, set aside within the body of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior for good works, when the stormy whirlwinds shifts and shakes foundations of our faith, at times, we turn to the secular world for help to solve spiritual matters: the thing is, every good or bad situation that manifests on earth, comes from either the kingdom of darkness in higher places or eternal kingdom of heaven; yes!, the devil can cause havoc in our lives; if we fail to listen, obey the voice of our Father, continue in ungodliness, (Leviticus 26:14-46); therefore, negative things happen in this world periodically; when unexplainable phenomenons happens in this world, such as tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc., these are natural disasters, that humanity does not have control over, the only one that has power to controls all things of creation is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, because his spirit dwells within all things of creation: when disasters happen on earth, it is already too late to plead our cases before his throne of mercy, to turn bad situations around for good; therefore, let us turn away from works of darkness, know who he is through his words, pray to our Father through his grace, have peace and joy everlasting.
The key to unlock the mercies of our Father, to solve many problems of this world, is prayer; when we have any type of problem, before we think of going to the secular world to solve matters, let us get on our knees pray to our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, on what to do about our issues, wait for him to direct our pathways rightfully on how to overcome our predicaments; if we feel overwhelmed concerning prevailing matters, it is the right thing to do as Christians, to call upon the elders within the body of Christ for arbitration, to settle matters, instead of reaching out to wordily jurisdiction for settlements; why?; because as believers, we have the same authorities as Jesus Christ, and will someday be partakers of eternal judgment, if we are partakers with Jesus Christ to judge the world, then we are capable to judge small matters on earth as well; do not get me wrong, there is a difference between judging and condemning others in demeaning ways; that is not acceptable to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, per book of St. Matthew 7:1-5; in reference to the above text, believers are to seek reconciliation of issues, settle their differences between one another from biblical perspectives, if possible, get church elders involved with settlements, instead of seeking secular jurisdictions to settle matters.
Today, if there are issues that seems to be prevailing over our souls; let us not think otherwise to seek advise from worldly jurisdictions to hurt one another, but rather, have the mindset of Jesus, to settle amicably, peacefully without antagonisms; ponder these questions; what will Christ do, how will he handle this issue?; pray about every undertaking, many times, the issues will be taken care of by Jesus Christ himself, without outside interventions, believe in Jesus Christ, he answers prayers of sinners, more or less believers; therefore, let us trust our matters unto him, believe in his solutions.
Dearly beloved, we are blessed of our Father, he loves us so much, that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16); and for the same love, he gave the scriptures, the manual of life, every guidelines within the pathways of life, are written down in this manual; therefore, let us not ignore it, but read its entirety, from book to book, know the wrongful and rightful pathways laid down by our Father unto his children, walk in his righteousness, into life with Jesus Christ, forever and evermore. Amen and Amen.

(KJV,) MATTHEW 5:7
(7) Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Brethren, though the world looks flat from humanly perspectives, we live in a world, that rotates within the universe of glory; it is marvellous in the eyes of our Father, knowingly or unknowingly, everything that humanity does to one another in this world, does reciprocate as well; life is a give and take situation, we give, we receive, whatever we invest to our own lives or lives of others, that is what we will receive; believe it or not, we reap what we sow, positively or negatively, there will be payback times: therefore, let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season, we shall reap, if we faint not. (Galatians 6:9); if we do evil against one another, sooner or later, unexpectedly evil will boomerang into our own lives.
In the above text, Jesus said, "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy."; that is, if we show mercy on others, do goodwill to the needy, we ought to rejoice, be happy, for we are already blessed in the first place to be able to give from what we have received, and surely, our coffers will never run dry, but will receive more replenishments from Jesus Christ, so we may continue to do his goodwill; therefore, let us continue to shine lights of mercies upon others, not only upon love ones, but haters as well, people we know within the secular world, family and friends or strangers from overseas, with the mindset of Christ, know that everything we do on earth, we do them all to Jesus Christ, and not get ahead of others, prove ourselves that we are capable of doing those things, whether we receive earthly recognitions and applauses of humanity or not; Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior is our rewarder, nothing we do on this earth, towards one another is done in vain, every movements we make on this earth, are either movements towards life advancements, derailments or failures; therefore, whatever we do in life, let us think wisely about the consequences that may arise in the future, before we endeavor to follow through with our decision makings; for what goes around, sooner or later will surely come back into our lives.
Therefore, let us have mercy and compassion on others, and not turn away from helping people in negative situations, reach out, touch lives with our blessings, shine lights of grace upon others, the same ways, we receive the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ everyday; for we breathe free air into our lungs, no one pays for the air they breathe, without minutes of free air, our bodies will bluelize, freeze, lay emotionless, turn into dust of the ground; this is a great gift of life, given freely to humanity; if we say, we have not received blessings from Jesus Christ, this is an example of his grace, regardless of how we view life, we are blessed to be alive on earth, and Jesus Christ requires us to bless others as well; at times, we may not reap the fruitfulness of our positiveness right away, regardless, whatever we have done in past, presently doing and will do in the future for Jesus, are not done in vain, there are earthly and eternal blessings to receive for being merciful unto others; therefore, let us have mercy on others, that we ourselves continue to receive mercies of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forevermore.
Dearly beloved, to be merciful, is to possess an attribute of kindness, be tenderhearted, forgive one another, sympathize with those who are down stricken, accommodate one another, take a step up to their situations, help them overcome; regardless of their differences, ethnicity, national origins, social or genders; let us go above and beyond our great selves, lay aside our negativities, help make other lives worth living; this is also one of the major attributes of our Father, (Psalm 116:5); Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, (Matthew 14:14); forever and evermore shall be. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) II PETER 2:17-19
(17) These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
(18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error:
(19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
FAITHFUL, FRUITFUL AND FLAWLESS
Brethren, through the sacred blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, believers are established in his righteousness forever; according to his heavenly power, we receive things that relate to life and righteousness, by knowing him, that he had called us into honors and supernatural powers, given freely by grace, that we will partake of his divine nature, after redemption from world of darkness into his marvellous lights,
However, there are true believers and fake believers, wolves in sheep clothings, bad apples, among the good apples; false prophets and teachers, who are deceivers of men, walking in diverse ways of ungodliness, participating in works of darkness, engaged in lusts of the flesh, but still serving Jesus Christ; Apostle Peter refers to these people in the above text; as wells without water; the question is, what is the benefit of any water well, when it has no water for human consumption?; it is good for nothing, than to be filled up with dirt of the earth; therefore, let our wells be dug deeply, full of living waters, by reading, hearing, studying of the scriptures, be approved by our Father as servants that are worthy to receive crown of glories in his righteousness, be faithful, fruitful and flawless in all our undertakings, endeavor to walk in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, dryness is deadly; of clouds that are carried with a tempest; these are people who carry themselves about without discretions, good sense of directions; in other words, a Jack of all trees, but have no master; desire to serve Jesus Christ, without spiritual guidance, rather, carnally inclined in all their ways: therefore, believers, let us not get carried away and about, think that we can do something for Jesus Chirst, but without him; depending upon our own carnalities, without spiritual empowerment; for he said, .....for without me ye can do nothing. (John 15:5); therefore, it is as important aspect of believers lives to seek him first in our undertakings, withdraw from his resources, allow the Holy Spirit to strengthen, guide our pathways in his righteousness, we cannot be disgraced among the heathen, seek his empowerments before spiritual endeavors; Peter went on to say, people who serve Jesus Christ with deceptions, are still in darkness, and their faiths are not concentrated in the light of Jesus Christ, but they are clouded in world of darkness, bundled up within their own carnalities forever; the ponder point of today is, where is our faith?; is it in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, or caught up in our own carnal world of darkness?
Many times, when believers receive greater empowerments of the Holy Spirit, if care is not taken, they will get derailed in the body of Christ; bring upon themselves disgrace, condemnations, allow spirits of arrogancy and prideful overshadow the glory of our Father, forget that all powers belong to our Father given through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; the moment a believer gets carried away, think pridefully, that they have achieve spiritual powers by their own human efforts; watch out!; the enemy of our souls, is warfaring to possess that chosen vessel as an instrument of evil in disguise, later bring upon them damnation; believer's solid foundations are built upon the resources of Jesus Christ, and not upon our own human efforts; therefore, let us not speak vainly, declaring words that we know that are not from the Holy Spirit, giving unhopeful promises, from wells with no water; also, let us not try to mixed up water with oil, that is to attain other spiritual powers, mediums, sorceries of empowerments to do the will of Jesus Christ; that does not work either; but follow strictly the truthfulness of the scriptures; faithfully obey and serve Jesus Christ, when our spiritual wells experience dryness, maybe, it is time for spiritual cleaning, to prepare for fresh spiritual anointing oils through fasting, prayers and supplications; Jesus is faithful, and will replenish our dryness with living waters, so that we flourish with green grass, fresh anointings, be oracles of the Holy Spirit, without blemish; for all things of the spirits are our possessions forever, so long as we are align ourselves to his will and not for selfish reasons; therefore, let us not allow spiritual corruptions overtake purposes of our Father, laid down through the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, upon which we preach the gospel truthfully, joyfully serve him, until the day of reconciliation to dwell with him forevermore.
Dearly beloved, let us exemplify ourselves with the attributes of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; while we preach to others to walk in his righteousness, let us not forget to practice what we preach, because enemies are watching our footsteps to see if we will stumble in areas which we claim to be righteous; therefore, be ware, be sober, be vigilant, prayerful; our adversary the devil, as a roaring, wounded lion, walking around, looking for preys to devour; however, no weapon formed against believers shall prosper, by the power blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, his death on cross and resurrection, we are victorious in world of darkness forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

THE LORD OUR STRENGTH
Brethren, this world is not our own, but belongs to our Father and his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, we are sojourners, regardless of national originations, colors, ethnicities, genders, human natures are basically the same; amazingly, everywhere we go on earth, though we may be out of our comfort zones, in different communities, states or abroad; many times, we find out that there are similarities in human behaviors; at times, we form opinions, criticize, label and condemn others for what we think they do out of norms, but ought not do or ought to do, but not doing, everywhere in this world, people find faults with others, criticize, condemn and assassinate characters; this is not new under the sun; with exceptions of revelations given through words of our Father, to rectify certain abnormal behaviors of humanity, when we take it upon ourselves to be critical, judgemental, condemning others, we place ourselves in the position of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, (John 5:22); do not get me wrong, we ought to correct one another, for no one knows all things of this world, we are all learners; if the need arises for us to correct one another, let us do so with wisdom, love and mindsets of benefits of doubts; for, the scriptures made clearly, that there is no one righteous on this earth, no not one. (Roman 3:10); for, all have sinned, come short of the glory of our Father. (Roman 23:23); through the disobedience of one man, sin came into this world, death came into the world because of sin, and men connected themselves to death, because we are all sinners; however, Jesus Christ came into the world, shed his blood, died on the cross, rose up again from the death to blot away the iniquities of this world; therefore, sin have no dominion over believers, because we are no longer under dictates of our schoolmaster, the law.
Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, is the only person that every knee should bow unto, every tongue confess their sins unto our Father; why?; because he is our advocate, through his shed blood, our past, present, future sins were forgiven entirely; therefore, before the judgment throne, each and everyone will give an account of himself to our Father, through Jesus Christ, on one on basis; on that day, our parents, siblings, friends and family members will not be present to advocate on our behalves, judgment is between humanity and Jesus Christ; therefore, let us not judge one another before appropriate times allocated for judgement; but find ways in which to encourage those who are going astray from Jesus Christ; with the scriptures, minister unto their hearts the truthfulness of matters, perhaps they will assimilate wisdom, turns around from falling into damnation, follow the Savior of the world; another aspect of encouraging others to turn away from awkwardness, it to love them for who we think they are, inspire them with rightful words, understand why people behave certain ways, intercede on their behalves for change of hearts, that the Holy Spirit will take absolute control of their issues, manifest his powers and transform lives in his righteousness into life everlasting.
Brethren, at times, when we point fingers of judgement against one another, we give room for the enemy to mock, laugh at us; why?; because, many times, we ourselves have sinned, from sunrises to sunsets, something that we do, may be offensive to the Holy Spirit, our guidance, ways in which we communicate about others, even when we get upset about secular or family affairs, what we eat or drink may contaminate or grieve the indwelling powers of the Holy Spirit; regardless of what we do, how we carry ourselves, by the end of day, the enemy will find loop holes to infiltrate minds with temptations of ungodliness; therefore, we are all sinners, let us not point accusing fingers at people who have fallen into sin, but encourage one another to walk in godliness, if they listen, we have gained a soul for Jesus Christ, if they refuse to pay attentions to our word of wisdom, we have done our parts; let us leave the rest in the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, there is a day set aside for judgement; may we find grace in the eyes of Jesus Christ on that day, inherit eternal lives.
Dearly beloved, as believers, let us watch our footsteps, walk in ways pleasing to our Father, and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let our conversations be Christlike, resit temptations of the devil to deceive others, for fames, fortunes and derail ourselves in his righteousness; think wisely of our actions before we act upon them; pray for one another in the faith of his righteousness forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) Matthew 7:1: Judge not, that ye be not judged.

(KJV.) 1 JOHN 1:5-7
(5) This is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
(6) If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
(7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Brethren, it is so amazing how atmospheric darkness cannot comprehend any type of light; the intensity of lights is so magnificent, illuminating consisting of granular particles, spectacular to human binoculars; hypothetically, scientists have collected datas on how the universe rotates to generate lights from the universe, that shines upon the earth; biblically, no one on earth can fully understand the ways in which light is generated, function in the universe of glory; except what we have heard from the scriptures, that our Father is the light, that shines in heavens and on earth; no other light exists besides his illuminating lighting natures.
In the beginning the earth was full of darkness, our Father commanded light to appear in darkness of the deep and there was light, (Genesis 1:3); again, he spoke lights to appear in the firmament of heaven to divide day from night, to be signs, for seasons, for days, and years, (Genesis 1:14); and it was so: therefore light is a gift from our Father unto humanity, he did not create lights because he needed to see affairs of this earth, but he created lights for the benefit of humanity, in other to feel comfortable within his creation; he also created the greater light to rule the day, and lesser light to to rule the night, (Genesis 1:16, 1:18); so we can see our pathways during the days and not stumble upon each other.
Our Father himself, being the Supreme light within creation, duplicated miniature lights of himself to rule over day and night; when we look up to the skies during daytime, we see sunshine over the earth; this is our Father looking over his creation, the same way, when the moon shines over the earth at nighttime, he watches over his creation when we are asleep; therefore, our Father sees all things of both heaven and of the earth, at same time; he is light himself, and in him is no darkness at all; neither blinking, sleeping or slumbering, he watches over his creation tirelessly; therefore, if we claim to be parts of him, that his spirits indwells our mortal bodies; on the contrarily, walk in ways that he will not walk, do things that are not pleasant in his eyes, disobey his words, hate one another, etc., we lie to ourselves, our innermost spirits are contaminated with evil works of world of darkness, and are deceitful to own selves: however, if we are truly his, wholeheartedly his lights, walk in the lights, as he is in the lights, we have relationship with him and one another, and are one family of eternal kingdom and the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, cleanses us from all ungodliness, regardless of our shortcomings.
Jesus Christ was the word spoken to create all things of heaven and on earth, he is the life within objects, particles, substances without him, nothing came into existence; being part of our Father, he came into the world, as the human form of light, physically dwelt among darkness but no one recognized or was able to determined his true identity as the true light which lightened every man that exists on earth; saved or unsaved, without him, we are blindfolded walking in darkness of this world; being the light of the world, the world came in existence through him, (the word), refer to John 1:1-3; when he came into this world, no one discerned that aspect of him, nor believed in him as the only Son of our Father: regardless, at the end of his ministry, he suffered, crucified, to take away the iniquities of this world, resurrected from the tomb, ascended into heaven, seated on the right hand of our Father, as an advocate to believers; therefore, if we have not received him into our hearts yet, let us come unto him today, we are already parts of his spirit, belongs to him; there is no enemy that can pluck us out of his hands of protections; however, the decisions are ours to make, whether to come unto him or not to come, he will not force himself upon our souls, let us come for our own salvation sakes, before it is too late and we fly away into unknown atmospheres.
Dearly beloved, today's message is clear, our Father is light, there is no darkness anywhere in him, if we claim to be his lights, and have relationships with him, let our actions and behaviors portray who we are, exemplify his attributes within darkness of this world, be kind, truthful in all our ways, love one another as ourselves, forgive and forget one another's faults,do good unto good pleasures into life everlasting. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ROMANS 13:8-10
(8) Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
(9) For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
(10) Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Brethren, as humans; if we can love, live peacefully, harmonize with one another, there will be no unfriendly dispositions, contentions, disputes, conflicts, hatredness, and list goes on and on; love is a major attribute of our Father, he displays his love through compassion, regardless of situations we encounter negatively on earth, if we pray unto our Father, his bowels yearns with compassions changes things around positively, for our own welfares, because of his Agape love for his children; for example, Adam and Eve sinned in the garden of Eden; regardless of what they did wrongfully, our Father had mercies on them, strengthened out his hands of grace and compassion, make coats of skins, and clothed their nakedness, refer to Genesis 3:21: what an amazing love of our Father!: also, to preserve souls from condemnation, he gave his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior to die on the cross, rose up again to pay the price of inquities committed by humanity, that whosoever believes in him, should not perish but have everlasting life. refer to St. John 3:16; because of his love, he preserves plantations, vegetations and flowers of the field, by sending rain upon earth periodically and dews of heaven upon earth to flourish the earth every dawn; breeds fishes in ocean waters, livestocks in the forests, replenishes the earth, so that there is abundance sustenance for human consumption: since creation of the world, generations to generations, the depth of his love for humanity never fails, but endures forever.
We all know that he created man in his own likeness, out of the dust of the ground, breathe into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul, refer to Genesis 2:7: now, each and every person walking on earth, is a physicality likeness of our Father, he created both male and female in his image, refer to Genesis 1:27; therefore, the only difference between our state of beings and our Father's is our earthly bodysuits, and of course, contaminated DNA, inherit from lineage of Adam and Eve our sinful parents of garden of Eden, but that infiltrated our souls; the second aspects of our beings is his spirits, for he is a spiritual being, we are spirits as well, but in bodysuits with dust of the ground; therefore, when we walk in the spirits, we display his spiritual attributes, connect ourselves to his spirits and harmonize peacefully on earth; therefore, what our Father is saying to humanity is, "refrain from hurting one another, when you hurt yourselves, you hurt me through my spirits within your earthly bodysuits, I feel your emotions through your spirits, whether joyful, sad emotions, when you cry, laugh or in physical pains; therefore, my children, love one another as yourselves, and as I love you, and live peaceably with all men in my presence until I receive you back into my bosom in eternity."
Brethren, all we need to do, is to love one another as ourselves, that is the basic fulfilment of entire law; if we love one another, we will not think negative thoughts, slander, gossip, plot and plan evil against one another; but our love will overflow with blessings, goodness and mercies of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; for he died and rose again from the tomb, that the sinful aspects of our lives, may be covered by his blood, that when we sin against our Father, repent, ask for his forgiveness, our sins are completely forgiven and we enjoy his grace, love everlasting; now what does our Father requires his beloved children to do?; he requires us to love one another, as he loves us; for we have his breath of life within our earthly bodysuits, therefore, we are miniatures of his image, be good to one another, for he is good; same ways, he is to us, and gave his guidelines of life to follow, refer to Exodus 20: that through love of one another, we should have peace and harmony on earth, as garden of Eden was intended to be, before inquities prevailed against the world into darkness.
Dearly beloved, let us not strife with one another in this world; but rather embrace one another as brothers and sisters of the same Father, with same perspectives of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; lay all differences aside, touch and agree, love and live peaceably with all men forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(9) Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
(10) For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
WHAT IS GOING ON?
Brethren, after Saul was converted to Apostle Paul, the Holy Spirit used him mightily to proclaim the gospel in and around neighboring cities; as he continued to testify about Jesus Christ; he went among some unbelievers, ministered about his experiences with Jesus Christ; surprisingly, some people rejected him, spoke against his teachings, believes and faith in Jesus Christ; however, when believers receive fresh Holy Ghost anointings, no one can stop its manifestations, the Spirit moves them into his purposes regardless of persecutions; this facts applies to present day believers, when believers endeavor to function diligently in their callings, there are always obstacles, oppositions, hindrances, mockeries, blockages, reproaches, and condemnations from enemies; at times from people of the same faith: regardless, believers, should not fall away, throw in their towels and give up on Jesus Christ; rather be bold, courageous, persevere in spite of distractions, forbear, refuse to decline, exercise self control regardless of what people say, be strengthen with faith, reading the scriptures, about what other believers went through in past generations, know that nothing new under the Sun; if it happened to believers of old, it will happen to present day believers; Apostles had same issues; in this case, Paul shook his raiments, and said unto his enemies, Your Blood be upon you own heads; I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles. (Acts 18:6); Paul sounded frustrated, but it is alright; for, Jesus said, "And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet: per Matthew 10:14; therefore, believers are not to feel offended when enemies reproach them for what they do for Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, rather they ought to continue to persevere, do what they have been called to do regardless of earthly oppositions, accomplish their tasks successfully and receive crown of glories in eternity.
In this case, Apostle Paul went to somewhere else to preach the gospel, to people who heard him, believed his words and were baptised into the faith: therefore, believers. let us girdle our loins of truth around our waistlines, shod our feet with the gospel, go into remote places of the earth with truthfulness of the good news and do not fear for our lives; we will not die but live and declare the works of Jesus Christ, (Psalm 118:17); therefore, let us be bold, brave, march forward, do his will; for, there is still work to do, before we meet with Jesus Christ in the firmament of glory to live with him forever.
After all these things, in the night by vision, Jesus spoke to Paul; saying, "Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: Jesus encouraged Paul not to fear anyone, but speak his words boldly and not be quiet; this encouragement goes to all believers of this day; whatever our callings are, let us serve him boldly, with all our hearts, voice our concerns biblically, appropriately, where injustices prevails against souls, do not turn away, be concern about what goes on in this world of darkness, be lights among darkness, love one another, care for the needy, sick, those incarceration, minster the goodness and mercies of our Father, salvation offered through Jesus Christ, his grace, second coming and eternal lives: Jesus, went on to say, "For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city."; therefore, believers, cheer up, be courageous, serve him diligently; Jesus is our backbone, watches over our souls at all times, nothing can harm anyone in his presence, unless he allows them to happen; there are legions of angels watching over believers to keep them away from perils and dangers of this world of darkness; believers, be rest assured that we are save in the arms of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore.
Dearly beloved, let us not take our visions and dreams for granted; if we have visions of the night, let us pray about them, double check all spiritual messages to know that they are from true source of lights, not from the deceiver; for, Satan himself does appear as angel of light, confuse pathways of believers, per 2 Cor. 11:14; beware!; if what we receive are true messages from Jesus Christ, he confirms his words so we know they are from him; and it is our obligations to act upon his words; do what he commands us to do, follow his will, trust in him with all our hearts, accomplish goals of life, inherit life for ever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(10) Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
FOUNTAINHEAD OF POWERS
Brethren, when souls accept Jesus Christ into their hearts as Lord and Savior, immediately, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within their innermost spirits; their mortal bodies becomes sanctified vessels, his holy habitations of his lights, holding enormous powers of our Father, for utilization of his manifestations on earth: these works are done miraculously by our Father, through his spirits, not from human self efforts; however, many times, believers pray to receive the Holy Spirit; if we already received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we already have the Holy Spirit; if we do not feel his presence within our souls, we need to double check ourselves, what may be contaminating our spirits, that may be reasons why the Holy Spirit will remain silence within our innermost spirits, at times we grieve him by our actions and behaviors; disobedient to his reproves continuously; in this aspects, we have to pray, ask for his forgiveness, we do not have to stressfully go above and beyond for his powers, he gives gifts according to our callings, and capabilities to utilize them; we just have to be humble under his authorities, teachings, guidances and reproves: we are his earthen vessels from the day of our redemption, he never leaves believers alone in this world of darkness, but seals their lives with his powers until the day of reconciliation with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior in the firmament of glory; also, the Holy Spirit may manifest gregariously or silently when anointing believers among congregations; regardless, he does not forsake them entirely, in other for him to manifest his anointing powers mightily for his glorifications in our lives, we have to acknowledge him as a person, the third party of our Father, the Holy Trinity, open up doors of our hearts unto him through prayers, praises and adorations, surrender our lives unto him, talk with him everyday, for his guidances in our daily decision makings,
One of the major goal of the Holy Spirit, is to transform, regenerate, refurbish souls, guide and seal them until day of reconciliation; after his works are perfectly done: his next agendas in the lives of saved, sanctified believers, are to further his works through their souls, use them as instruments of his glory, to touch unbelieving souls, bring them out of darkness into his marvelous lights: all these are works of our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and not from self efforts; that anyone can boast, all glory belongs to our Father: for believers to receive more anointing powers of the Holy Spirit, it is necessary to reverence him, walk in humility and in boldness at same times, know that there is a creator, the Almighty Father, giver of all things, accept facts that, Jesus Christ is our fountainhead of powers, we cannot do anything for him, but without him; for he said, "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.: (John 15:5); all things are done through his power grace, without the Holy Trinity, believers lives are not completed in him; we need the Holy Trinity, our Father, his Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit in our lives at all times: most believers, receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, spiritual manifestations right away at the alter, when saved, and speak in tongues; while others do not feel any impact, sensations of holiness at all, but it does not mean that he did come into their hearts or not with them; he is always present, and will forevermore be present with believers,
Brethren, if the Holy Spirit is actively involved in our lives, there are no troubles of this world that we cannot overcome by the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; regardless of what bewails our souls, as a comforter, the Holy Spirit will strengthens us with faiths, to trust in Jesus Christ, and persevere and overcome difficult situations victoriously, that we may be able to testify of his deliverances; therefore, let us acknowledge his presence within our hearts forevermore and yield ourselves to his purposes,
Dearly beloved, when we set our minds on Jesus Christ, what he went through, his sufferings death on the cross and resurrection from the tomb, for our iniquities, gain victory over the enemy, and was rewarded, given a name above all names, that at the mention of his name, all knees must bow and acknowledge him as Savior of the world; believers, our sufferings are not in vain; regardless of our negative situations currently, blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior conquered it all; we are more than conquerors over our situations as well; and know that no matter what may be going on currently, we are victorious, same way, Jesus rose up from the death, we will rise up again from our present situations, with double portion glories, blessings, victories, peace and joy forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) COLOSSIANS 3:13
(13) Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
BE COOL, CALM AND COLLECTED!
Brethren, as significant personalities of the body of Christ, with kingdom inheritances, we are not just ordinary people within the world of darkness, we are the lights of this world; therefore, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior requires his believers to act the same manners, in which he acted whiles on earth; love our Father, love one another as ourselves, be compassionate towards the suffering, with spirits of empathies, walk uprightly, with integrities, think through our words before we utter them, speak majestically, with qualities of royalties, talk not in vexations, in all circumstances, be cool, calm and collected, gathering informations, listen carefully to what people say to assimilate wisdom, and understanding of their perceptions on issues; when challenging moments surfaces in our lives, exercise mouths of authorities over evil works of infiltration spirits; set the captives free from shackles of the enemy, minster the gospel truth, sanctify hearts of humanity, to repent from evil and believe the gospel, enlighten their pathways into the last boat of salvation, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
In the above text, Apostle Paul used salt as an analogy to speeches of believers, explaining his point of view on believers' behaviors and integrities; what is Salt?; it is a condiment, consisting mainly of sodium chloride, commonly used in every household, and good for seasoning, preserving food; however, too much consumption of Salt, to some, may be dangerous for human health, because of medical reasons; however, Salt generally is a good condiment; when we cook or eat delicacies but without Salt, regardless of how much condiments we bring together in our cookings, it is tasteless: therefore, Salt is very important aspect of our tasteful lives; Apostle Paul encourages believers to have taste in the utterances, not to speak with ill manners, ignorantly, nonsensically, rather speak wisdomly, slowly, taking times to explain ourselves, so that the hearers can understand, assimilate their points of views entirely: there are few references in the scriptures thereby Salt is mentioned: Jesus said, 'Ye are Salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot." per Matthew 5:13; our Father gave his beloved children a covenant of Salt: refer to Numbers 18:19; ask them to season every oblation of meat with Salt. refer to Leviticus 3:13; Elisha said, bring me a new cruse, and put Salt therein, .. cast the Salt into the spring of waters, prayed, and healed the waters: refer to 2 Kings 2; and the list goes on; therefore, Salt in biblical sense is an enlightenment to our souls; let us not lose our flavours, do as much as we can to maintain gifts and talents of the Holy Spirit, share, encourage, inspire one another with what we have received from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, when we salt lives of others, we receive more replenishments of salt from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, to continue to savories in an unsavory world of darkness.
Dearly beloved, as Salted individuals, let not our savories be tasteless, but rather tasteful, so that souls could perceive, assimilate and endeavor to be Saltines as well as Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, have salvation and be joint heirs with him in live everlasting. Amen and Amen!
