(KJV.) ST. LUKE 18:3-6
(3) And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
(4) And he would not for a while: but afterward, he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
(5) Yet, because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
(6) And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
THE RUTHLESS JUDGE
Brethren, as brothers and sisters of one Father; let us love and seek the welfare of one another, be our brother's keepers; seek justice for injustices, shine highlights of mercies, offer assistance to the poor, needy, orphans, widows, widowers, reach out to the incarcerated, rejoice with those who rejoice, and mourn with the mourners, seek peace and pursue it; this is the will of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!
In the above text, Jesus told his disciples a Parable of a widow and a judge: saying, that there was in a city a judge, who does not fear our Father or regard people; in the same city was a widow, who came unto him for justice, to vindicate of her adversaries; knowing this ruthless judge, he disregarded her petitions, no matter how many times she pleaded her case before him, he totally ignored her, did not give her the audience; however, the widow did not give up, but persistently continued to petition her case before the judge; after some time, the judge said to himself, "Though, I do not fear God, or care about people, yet, because this widow keeps on troubling me, I will justify her, keep her off my back, have peace of mind.": Jesus said to his disciples, "Hear what the unjust judge saith." believers, what is the bottom line of this parable? the bottom line is; when we bring our petitions before the throne of grace, let us pray fervently, be persistent, zeal and enthusiasm, know that regardless of where we pray, we are in the presence of our Father, he knows what our heart desires are before we pray them before him, he hears our utterances, what we pray about, knows our attitudes of approaches, whether they are nonchalant, devasting, emergency petitions or daily prayers without the purposeful faith to receive immediate answers; the widow was purposeful, knew she had to be justified, and never gave up on her petition, that someday she might receive favor in the eyes of the judge; guess what? with her faith without waverings, she also found the favor in the eyes of the judge, her issue was resolved; therefore, today, if we have unanswered petitions before our Father, let us be encouraged with this parable, to know that whatever our petitions are before the throne of grace, Jesus Christ, the judge of all judges, is aware, and working on them all; he is not a ruthless judge, and does not ignore anyone or their prayers; therefore, let us not give up on our faith in him, throw in towels of services, walk away from his righteousness; but keep the faith tough lights burning, trust in him, hang in there, know that he is advocating the Father regarding our petitions, at the appropriate times, we will receive answers by his grace. Amen!
Dearly beloved, though we do not discern the presence of Jesus Christ walking among us physically; he is within and around us at all times; his presence resides within all things of creation, engineering the affairs of both heaven and on earth; therefore, if we seek justice for any reason, he will not turn deaf ears upon our petition, but will step into our situation, call spade a spade!: can we do the same for our fellow brothers and sisters? this a point to ponder on! also, let us be serious with our prayer times, before we pray, let us cast away all worldly distractions, purge our minds and hearts of lusts of the flesh, focus entirely on Jesus Christ, know that we are in his presence to communicate with our Father through him, once we feel connected to the Holy Spirit; without doubtful minds, channel our heart desires, through his name unto our Father, if our requests are not of the evil natures, they will be granted, and manifested by his mercies that never fails, but endures forever and evermore. Pray without ceasing! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ACTS 10:13-16
(13) And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
(14) But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.
(15) And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
(16) This was done thrice and the vessel was received up again into heaven.
PRAY AND GIVE ALMS
Brethren, our Father is not a respecter of people: he created man to worship, reverence, and obey his statutes, delight themselves in his providence, live peaceably with one another; all things of creation are in his presence, it does not matter to him, where souls reside on earth, their nationalities, genders, and skin colors, a soul who acknowledges him alone as their Almighty Father, reverence him, walk in his righteousness, that soul is accepted by him regardless of their ethnicity or diversity backgrounds: therefore, when people, resent, despise, hate one another, because of adverse indifferences; let us be careful not to sin against our maker; for he looks upon the hearts of men; he saved the household of a prostitute called Rahab, because of her one act of kindness towards his chosen people. cf. Joshua 2: if Jesus Christ says come unto me, all ye that labor, are heavy laden, it includes everyone regardless of who they are on this earth; let us not judge anyone for who they are, or what their behaviors are, if we observe people with abnormal behaviors, walking in darkness, they need prayers to come into the light; therefore, let us pray for them to discern the rightful ways of doings things, if we have to voice our concerns, let us do so with wisdom and respect for one another, but leave all judgements to Jesus Christ; for judgment day, that great and terrible day; on that day, there shall be wailings and gnashing of teeth, for all those who walked in ungodliness, refused to repent, accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
In reference to the above text, Simon Peter had a vision, before he had the vision, he had prayed, and was very hungry, wanted to eat, but the food was not yet ready; he fell into a trance, and saw heaven opened, and a vessel descended unto him, in a form of great sheet knit at the four corners, let down to earth: on the sheet were all types of fourfooted beasts of the earth; however, in the laws of Moses, not every beast is a clean beast for human consumption, cf. Lev. 20:25; therefore, Peter resisted what he saw, but, heard a voice commanded him to arise, kill, and eat: he answered, "Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean." but, the voice spoke to him again the second time; What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common: this was done the third time, and the vessel was received up into heaven: when Peter woke up from the vision, while he pondered on the meaning of it; he received visitors, from a certain centurion in Caesarea called Cornelius, seeking him, the Spirit said to him, in other words, "There are three men at the gate seeking you, arise and go with them, do not worry, I have sent them to you: then Peter rose up and went with them: ... in a nutshell, the vision Peter saw, regarding the unclean beasts, was not really about food, but about people from all walks of life; for when he got there, he found many that were come together; and said to unto them, "Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?"; now Cornelius narrated his story, of how an angel appeared unto him in his house in bright clothing, said unto him that his prayers have been heard and alms are in remembrance in the sight of our Father; you see! this is the point, our reverence to our Father, and goodwill towards others are not fruitless efforts, but are counted worthy in his eyes; therefore, let us pray to our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, give alms, do goodwill to the poor and needy: Peter preached the gospel to them, the Holy Ghost fell on them, they spoke in tongues, baptized, and receive salvation; therefore, as believers, let us not reject people from different ethnicities, but receive them into our midst, for the Holy Spirit to touch and transform their lives from who they are, into what they ought to be, use them for his glory forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) HEBREWS 4:12-13
(12) For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
(13) Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
MY WORD IS MY BOND!
Brethren, the word, is the light of our souls; how? our Father is the light, and dwells in lights, there is no darkness with him at all: cf. Daniel 2:22; case in point, during creation, in the garden of Eden, our Father breathed his breath of light into the nostrils of molded dust of the ground, generated life, and man became a living soul; therefore, without his breath of life, our mortal bodies perish, disintegrate into dust, where we originated from, his breath evaporates into the atmospherics.
As humans, many times, we feel, overwhelmed, overburdened, downcasted with troubles of this life; but the solution to our problems is simple, does not cost anything to acquire, lays in our own hands; what is the solution? the solution is the word of our Father: which is also Jesus Christ, the light of the world: cf. John 1:1-5; therefore, we have to realize that, regardless of what we go through in this life, without the word, Jesus Christ, there is emptiness within our souls, and we have no lights burning, but our innermost spirits are darkened; where there is no light, there is darkness; and darkness bears the fruits of darkness; such as depression, fear, anxiety, worry, sadness, sorrow, sickness, sucidial, tears and turmoil; guess which tree bears these types of fruits? the tree of the kingdom of darkness, from the enemy of our souls; therefore, whenever we feel the presence of any type of these fruits; it's time to pray fervertently, rebuke thoughts of evil, dismiss and cast them away from minds, hearts, spirits, get into his words, read them, meditate on his promises, pray to our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the lights of our innermost spirits, reestablish ourselves in his lights, receive fresh anointing oils into our lights; when light comes in, darkness must disappear with its fruits; however, let us not wait until we feel the need to read the word, before we do so, the word is our daily bread, to feed our hungry souls, as we eat physical food every day to keep our physics in good condition, same ways, we ought to read the word daily, keep our spirits in alignments with the source of lights, recieve revelations, to discern pathways of life.
Through the words of our Father, all things were created, both on earth and the heavens; he called things into existence by his words; cf. Psalm 33:6; his words are quick, as lightinnings on rainy days, powerful, sharper than two-edged swords, which penetrates into the depthness of our souls, enters into our spirits, and all parts of our physicalities, spiritualities, to know our thoughts and motives of our hearts; there is nothing hidden before him: through his words all things are revealed, whatever we do in secrets, with whoever we do with, the darkness of our hearts are transparent before his eyes; therefore, let us not deceive ourselves, be shady with one another, but rather be truthful, transparent and truthworthy in all our ways.
Dearly beloved, our lives are predetermined, before we enter into this world, some people lives are predetermined from world of darkness as instruments of evil works, while others are predetermined from heaven for good works; either ways, if we surrender our souls unto Jesus Christ, read his words daily, we transforms into useful instruments for his glory; therefore, the word is most important part of human lives, to strengthen our spirits, souls and bodies through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, today, have we read the words of our Father yet? this is just a friendly reminder! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) GALATIANS 5:13-16
(13) For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
(14) For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
(15) But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another:
(16) This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
THE PURPOSEFUL HEART
Brethren, Jesus Christ paid the price with his blood, to redeem souls from the bondage of iniquities; not only that but, he also grants freedom and life everlasting to those who will accept him as Lord and Savior; what Apostle Paul is saying to believers in the above text is; if we have been set free from the grids of iniquities, granted salvation, free grace, and life everlasting; it is because of the loving grace of our Father; therefore, we ought to do likewise, serve and love one another as ourselves.
Case in point, from the creation of the world, everything our Father did through his son Jesus Christ was to benefit humanity: after he created all things of the world, he also made a man have dominion over his creation, to enjoy, be fruitful and multiply, replenish the whole earth , that many can partake of his blessings. Genesis 1; he did all these things out of his love for humanity; therefore, let us share our blessings with others, emulate the love of our Father, shine his lights of love through our givings; the same way he loves us, gave his only begotten Son to die on the cross, shed his sacred blood to pay for sins he did not commit; therefore, with the season of givings around the corner, let us think about love, show love to people in needy situations.
Jesus Christ loves us, even when we trespass against our Father, he advocates the Father for our sins; the Father does not look upon our sins whenever Jesus advocates on our behalves, but he looks upon his blood, and forgives our sins, over and over again; his love never fails; therefore, if we receive his agape love, goodness, unmerited mercies, and favors; why don't we offer the same kindness to our fellow brothers and sisters? what would be the cause to hate one another, when Jesus Christ who paid the price for our sins does not hate anyone but envelopes us with his love without end? even he cares about unbelievers, who do not recognize him as Lord and Saviour whenever they call upon his Holy Name in trouble times, his bowels yearns, reaches out to them, bids them come to him for salvation, grace, and eternal lives.
Therefore, regardless of how we may feel about offensive behaviors of others; let us remember, we were sinners ourselves, though saved by grace, knowingly or unknowingly we sin against our Father many times; if he forgives our sins and remembers them no more, cf. Hebrew 8:12: then we ought to forgive one another offensive behaviors, and remember them no more. Peter asked Jesus a question, "Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus said unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven."; wahoo! that is lots of times to forgive one another; therefore, regardless of how many times others have offended us, let us remember what Jesus said to Peter, forgive them, seventy times seven times, not only that but forget the offenses as well, clear our minds, hearts of all filthiness, contaminants of the spirits, resentments, grudges and malice; grieve not the Holy Spirit, set emotions free from infiltration spirits, have good health, peace, joy, happiness and live longer years.
However, if we continue to hold on to offenses, remember, we overburden our hearts with darkness, deem the lights of Jesus Christ within our innermost spirits, darkens our dreams, visions, and cannot discern revelations from the Spirits; remember, where there is no vision, the people perish, ........cf. Proverbs 29:18: and believer's lives are guided by Jesus Christ through revelations, therefore, let us refrain ourselves from things that clouds, overshadows the spiritual tough lights, visions and dreams, purge our hearts from all encumbrances, that we may hear from our Father, discern our pathways in darkness of this world: also, let us beware that believers are in a battle with world of darkness every day; therefore, be spiritual, put on the whole armor of our Father, that when trouble comes to our ways, we may be able to stand against the temptations of the enemy: cf. Ephesians 6:11; rebuke him, and he will flee away in Jesus Name. believers are more than conquerors, stand strong in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior: love one another as ourselves. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. JOHN 6:12
(12) When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing is lost.
IT IS ONLY A SETUP!
Brethren, all things of this world, are engineered, monitored, and implemented from heaven by our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; as human species, it is normal for us to perceive what goes on, in and around our physicalities; therefore, at times, when our plans and expectations of life, take negative turns from positive expectations; we feel devasted, like failures, think negative thoughts, beat down ourselves with condemnation, sorrowful, and regretful connotations; however, many times, Jesus Christ allows negative circumstances to prevail over our lives, in other for him to manifest his glory through our predicaments: when we pray to him to deliver us from our situations, receive answers to our prayers, and we give thanks to him, testify of his miracles, how he delivered our souls from troubles, he delights to do more of what he did before in our lives: therefore, today, whatever maybe our setbacks, problems, trial or tribulations; though they are heavy burdens upon our shoulders, let us think positive thoughts, cast away the negative provoking, reproaching voices of infiltration spirits; but know for sure that Jesus Christ is aware of our predicaments, and working all things together for our own benefits, pray, praise, give thanks, trust and believe in him, wait for deliverances.
Jesus Christ allows negative circumstances into believers lives not to destroy them, but to strengthen their faith in him; while they are in predicaments, he sharpens them to be useful instruments for his glory, grants them, the power to overcome whatever their situations may be, delivers them when all is well with them; therefore, if we find ourselves downcasted with labors and heavy laden of this life, before we call someone, let us call upon the name of Jesus Christ first, pray to him, he is the answer to our problems, there is rest in him for our souls. cf. Matthew 11:28: never allow the enemy the chance to jubilate over circumstances, that he has won any battle over our souls, he is already a failure, Jesus won the battle over him by his death on the cross, resurrection from the grave, and possess the keys of hell and death, given authority over the affairs of heaven, hell, and on earth, the entire universe of glory is in his jurisdiction; the enemy has nothing, except to provoke, torment souls, bring them into condemnation; therefore, let us not yield to his temptations, to fall into condemnation; beware, that the enemy is a real spiritual being, not a make-believe, imaginary being, and he is desperately hunting for souls to devour, spur into condemnation; never fall for his lies!
In the text above, we all know the story of how Jesus fed the multitude miraculously on the mountain with five barley loaves and two small fishes: when the multitudes were filled, he said to his disciples, "Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing is lost."; Jesus cares about leftovers, not because he is greedy, poor, and needy, but because he cares about others, to have food available to cater for the late comers, and also to bless the household of the providers: in an analogy, Jesus is saying to the believers of this present times, Go into the world, preach the gospel, feed the hungry souls, gather the remnants, into the last boat of salvation, before the day of reconciliation; therefore, believers, let us be encouraged to reach out to our brothers and sisters in the world of darkness, minister or pray for them to come out of darkness into the lights of Jesus Christ; let us endeavour not to leave remnants behind, except children of perdition, marked for damnation, minister the gospel of salvation, grace, peace, joy, hope and life everlasting.
Dearly beloved, if we find ourselves in predicaments today; Jesus is saying to you and me, snap out! stop condemning yourself! condemnation is not of me, but of the devil, rise up from the ashes, shake yourself up, wipe away your tears, cheer up, all is not lost, I will make all things new again, be patient, good things come to people who wait for deliverances by his Powerful Mighty Hand, he is on his way over, he will he there shortly in his Holy Name! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) JAMES 3:13-16
(13) Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
(14) But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
(15) This wisdom descendeth not from above but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
(16) For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
Brethren, as believers within the body of Christ, we need spiritual awareness of who we are, that we may exemplify ourselves appropriately; for there are no dull moments in this world, whereby our lives are not under scrutiny, by critics, the judgemental lenses of unbelievers, narrowing down upon our souls, to perceive who we really are, our mannerisms, connotations, relationships, statuses, and images as followers of Jesus Christ; therefore, when we accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit transforms our lives from who we were, our old selves, into the image of him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous lights, to take upon his attributes, be shining examples of this world; therefore, let us watch our conversations with one another, think about our words carefully before we speak our hearts out to others, speak not in arrogance or with vexation of spirits, but with humbleness of wisdom, be kind, tenderhearted towards one another, as well as, swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. cf. James 1:19.
Many times, due to negative circumstances prevailing against our souls, we may feel the pressures of resentments, from people within our own circles of life, who are supposed to show love, understand our predicaments, offer emotional or physical supports in other to help eradicate our problems; at times, non-fulfilments of expectations on their parts, if care is not taken, can turn into bitterness of hearts, enviousness, deem our lights of glory; therefore, when in trails, let us not trust in humanity, but look up to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, trust in him; for he is the answer to all the problems of this world; therefore, resist provoking voices of infiltrations spirits to fall into temptations of the enemy; but rather, pray fervently, sing songs of praises to our Father, glorify him in all undertakings, know for sure that Jesus Christ is working all things together for good, for his glory, trust and believe in him; rejoice and be exceedingly glad, that the dark clouds hovering over lives are moving away; to unveil the sun shines of greatness, positiveness, changes are underway, it is well again in Jesus Name. Amen!
Believers, we are redeemed of the Lord, have the wisdom from above, let us utilize our gifts to affect positive changes in this world of darkness, not against one another, resist spirits of enviousness and strives, for we are all branches of the same vineyard of Christ, embrace one another as brothers and sisters with one common goal, to bring along souls from darkness into the marvelous lights of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) LAMENTATIONS 3:22-23
(22) It is of the LORD's mercies that we not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
(23) They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.
Brethren, each and every soul born to earth, whether bond or free, lives by the mercies of our Father every day; tell me how? when we see ourselves lay down to sleep in the night, no one can tell exactly what happens to our spirits, while our mortal bodies lay down motionless on sleeping mattresses, it is our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, who knows how spirits operate within the realms of the spirits before daybreaks; whether they operate in good or bad works, the mercies of Jesus Christ still allows them to reenter their mortal senses, rise up in the mornings, partake of his goodness and mercies that never fails, but endures forever.
The question is, why do souls who do evil works, still wake up in the mornings, and are not consumed within the spirits? because the LORD's compassion fail not: they are new every morning; and though they are workers of iniquities, Jesus Christ have greater compassion for their souls, that their are in bondage of the enemy; therefore, offers them the grace to change their ways through his words, bids them to come out of the world of darkness, accept him as Lord and Savior, have salvation and eternal lives; therefore, the struggle continues between kingdom of darkness and kingdom of lights; though the battle was won in heavenly places before the enemy was cast down to earth, he still roams around like a wounded roaring lion, looking for someone to devor; let us not be afraid of his works, they are unfruitful, reprove them in Jesus Name Amen!
However, redemptive souls, with the resurrection power of the Holy Spirits, while in the spirits, seek the face of Jesus Christ, attain gifts of the spirits, wake up in the mornings, manifest those gifts to the glorification of his Holy Name, within the body of Christ and in the world of darkness; these are the souls who have extra privileges, to enjoy the free grace of Jesus Christ, with the everyday mercies of our Father, and eternal lives: therefore, as believers, we blessed of our Father, the question is, where do are we going from here with our gifts and talents? this is the point to ponder on! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. JOHN 4:22-24
(22) Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
(23) But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
(24) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
IN HIS PRESENCE
Brethren, as believers, worship should be the number one part of reverence to our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; why? because in the old testament scriptures, servants worshiped him, and were counted worthy, faithful, and blessed forever; cf. Genesis 22:5; worship is desirable to him; therefore, when he gave Moses the Ten Commandments for his chosen people, he made it clear that; they should worship him alone: not worship any other god before him; for his name is Jealous, and he is a jealous Father: cf. Exodus 34:14; therefore, believers, let us not get sidetracked with idols of the twenty-first century, rather worship our Father, who inhabits the universe of glory, not only in sanctuaries alone, but everywhere on earth, sing songs of praises, pray to him at anytime, receive his favors, victories, protections, healings, and covenanted blessings.
Though our Father delivered his beloved children from bondage and slavery with his mighty hands; when they turn away from him in the wilderness, made themselves a golden calf, stripped nakedness, praised, danced and worshiped around it, many lives were slaughtered for worshipping an idol made by hands, and did not praise and worshiped our Father who did great and mighty works in the land of Egypt, to deliver them from the slavery hands of Pharoah, King of Egypt; in another example of how our Father desires, delights in our worship is, when the ark of covenant was retrieved from the house of Obededom into the city of David, he danced before the LORD with all his might, with only a linen breastplate covering; when his wife Michal, Saul's daughter, looked through the window and saw her husband leaped, and danced before the LORD, she despised him in her heart, when King David went home to bless his household, Michal spoke rudely against his behavior before the people, but David did not get angry, but answered her with more praises and adorations to our Father: consequently, our Father, punished Michal, made her barren until the day of her death. cf. 2 Samuel 6: therefore, worship is important to our Father, for, he blesses people who reverence him with favors everlasting; also, those of us, who are in the habits of ridiculing people who worship fervently, let us take lessons from what happened to Michal, Saul's daughter, for our Father fights battles on behalf of those who reverence him, with all their hearts, soul, and bodies.

Brethren, as humans, from the foundation of the world, we were created to be responsible species; in an inference: Adam and Eve were created by our Father, placed in the garden of Eden to dress, keep it, and gave them instructions, that of every tree of the garden they may eat freely except tree of the knowledge of good and evil; this is a responsibility to obey; not only that, but he also made it clear to them, of the consequences of disobedience to his words. cf. Genesis 2:15-17; furthermore, Adam was given another responsibility, to name all the animals species created by our Father, cf. Genesis 2:19-20; but the question is, did Adam lived up to all his expectations?
Adam did not! but listened to the deception of the devil, assimilate and followed through with his lies over the words of our Father; and as the result, iniquities prevailed over the world, until Jesus Christ came into the world, died on the cross to save humanity from bondage of iniquities, rose again from the dead, grant salvation, free grace, and eternal lives to all those who believe in him. cf John 3:16; therefore, whatever talents were given to humanity, duties and responsibilities we have to perform for the benefit of others; let us do all things without grumblings or nonchalant behaviors, but rather with zealous, and enthusiasts, know that our services are not for one another alone, to we also serve Jesus Christ, through our services to one another: also, the eyes of the LORD oversees the world, to behold our works, whether good or evil; someday, before the throne of grace, everyone will account for their works on earth; therefore, let us serve the Lord faithfully, diligently, and with joyfulness of hearts; for there are greater rewards in heavenly places for our works, and of course, consequences for misusing the gifts, or not utilizing them for the benefits of others.cf. Matthew 25, for the biblical points of views.
In the above text, overseers of churches, within the body of Christ, are encouraged to take care of themselves, and the congregations over which the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit anointed, appointed, officiated them to oversee his purposes: preach his words, feed spiritually hungry souls, believers whom Jesus Christ redeemed from darkness into marvelous his lights, with his own blood; for there are wolves in sheep clothing, satanic agents, disguised as believers, within congregations, but working the works of evil, in the name of Jesus Christ, against the body of Christ, in an efforts to lure believers back into their old ways in the world of darkness; therefore, as we serve Jesus Christ, let us beware of what goes on within our vicinities, not take what we perceive for granted, but pray, preach truthful words, that transforms lives, cast away the traces of evil works from congregations.
Dearly beloved, though we may think otherwise, that we intellectually acquired positions ourselves or through merits, does not need to be supervised, or be told what to do; let us know that there is an authority, above all authorities, who oversees all the affairs of both heaven and earth; secular, faith establishments, including domestic affairs; this person's name is Jesus; the name above all names, the shepherd of all shepherds, Master of all masters, Lord of all Lords; who lives and reigns forevermore; therefore, everyone born unto earth, has a responsibility to perform under his jurisdiction, whether bond or free; it does not make a difference, on the judgement day, we will account for our works on earth before his throne; therefore, overseers, in the secular or faith establishments, everywhere on planet earth, let us make sure that we do the will of Jesus Christ, faithfully, diligently, with lot of love, integrities, work his good works, receive greater rewards, crown of glories in heavenly places forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ACTS 16:26-28
(26) And suddenly there was a great earthquake so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and ever one"s bands were loosed.
(27) And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.
(28) But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.
FREEDOM AT LAST!
Brethren, when we follow and do the will of Jesus Christ, there no mountains of difficulties, valleys of despairs, shadows of death that we cannot overcome; for Jesus overcome the world of darkness with his light of the resurrection made believers overcomers by his death and resurrection as well, that we may exemplify ourselves in him, walk in his footsteps, do what he did while on earth; therefore, let us go into the world, teach the gospel, lead souls out of darkness into marvelous lights, heal the sick, the lame, the blind, seek justice for all and peace in the world of turmoil; all souls, who believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior, walk in his righteousness, are more than conquerors in the world of darkness, there are no devastating situations prevailing against their souls, that the blood of Jesus has not dealt with on the wooden cross to set them free from it all: therefore, let us trust in him, that it is already done, we are more than conquers in his Holy Name.
In the above text, Paul, and Silas during a prayer session healed a young girl possessed with a spirit of divination; which profited her masters a lot of fortune by foretelling the future; when her masters saw that the demons using her were gone, and there was no hope for them to make any more profits, they arrested Paul and Silas, brought them into the marketplace, before the court of law, accused them of making trouble in the city, after scrounging them with stripes, they put them into prison; brethren, it is not easy to do the will of Christ, but Jesus never leaves his disciples alone in trails; subsequently, at midnight, while Paul and Silas prayed, sang praises to our Father despite their trails; suddenly, there was a great earthquake, the foundation of the prison walls shook, immediately all the doors opened, and everyone's chains were loosed: what happened here, faith in action, as they prayed, sang songs of praises, deliverance came suddenly; therefore, no matter what our devasting situations maybe, if we pray, sing songs of praises, trust in our Father, through Jesus Christ, all things shall be well again; for there is nothing impossible with our Father, and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; today, let us go ahead, do his will, trust him; regardless of what maybe the challenges of this present times, Jesus is in control, all things will work together for good, by his grace.
When the dozing prison guard woke up from his sleep, realized that the prison doors were opened, he pulled out his sword to kill himself, thought that the prisoners had escaped, but Paul, cried out with a loud voice, harm not himself, for they were still in there: what a mighty work of the Holy Spirit!; first of all, Paul and Silas exercised enormous faith, prayed, sang praises to our Father while incarcerated, and suddenly, they were delivered; therefore, in all situations, let us pray, sing songs of praises, give thanks to our Father, receive his goodness and mercies: secondly, Paul and Silas exercised boldness, though their chains were loosed, they did not escape out of the prison walls, but waited, that the glory of Jesus Christ may shine out of their lives; for, after the prison guard called for light, and rush in, he came trembling, fell down before them, brought them outside, and asked what to do to be saved? you see! Paul and Silas did not value their own lives to quickly leave the prison walls, but they waited for the prison guard: inadvertently, Jesus used them to save the guard and his household: this is a lesson to all believers, that while we do the will of Jesus Christ, there are always obstacles to overcome, that will take enormous faith, to wither the storms, and boldness, to ascertain our faith in him, persevere to the end of our days on earth; what would you do, if we find ourselves in this type of predicament?, may be flee for our lives, once the chains were loosed; no one knows for sure what will be in difficult times; therefore, let us be readily prepared to face any challenges of our callings, never be weary in well-doing, throw in towels, and give up entirely; but persevere, forbear and longsuffering, for in due season, we shall reap if we faint not. cf. Galatians 6:9. Amen and Amen!

(21) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
(22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
(23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
I SURRENDER IT ALL, OH LORD!
Brethren, conceptually, there is never a dull moment in human lives, a moment, whereby nothing is happening to lives; from the time of birth until the end of days on earth, there is always an action or reaction to human development: physically and spiritually, the transformation processing of human lives begin at conception, birth, youthful, adolescence, maturity and to death; but, how many times have we questioned our spirits to discern the intended purposes of Jesus Christ in our lives? maybe, not yet, or never; well! each and every soul born on earth has a purpose to accomplish, regardless of our national origins, ethnicities, genders or skin colors; their pathways through life are predesigned, determined before birth; many times, intended purposes of Jesus Christ for souls may be altered by parents, while transitioning on earth, due to the facts, that parents like to be in control, call the shots in their children lives, design career pathways for them, without discerning what the purposeful wills of Jesus Christ are for their lives; despite all that, in whatever field they find themselves, so long as their lives are meaningful to the service of humanity, heaven will not count them as worthless souls; therefore, regardless of where we work, the types of services we render to the world, let us give our best service to one another, know that we are on assignments for Jesus Christ, that there are greater rewards in heaven, for services rendered to one another on planet earth; subsequently, let us work the will of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior with truthfulness of hearts.
In the above text, Jesus said to the multitudes on the top of the mountain; Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. you see! we may call ourselves believers, read the scriptures, worship and praise our Father through Jesus Christ; if our faith has no works, it is a vainglory; cf. James 2:26; therefore, let us serve the Lord, as we serve one another diligently, with joyfulness of hearts, minds, souls, and strengths, have good sense of humor, smile, show love to people we come in contact with every day, that we care about them, what we have to offer; for though we physically work on earth, spiritually, we work for the purification of our souls, build mansions above, to inherit priceless eternal blessings; also, regardless of our duties and responsibilities on earth, if we work evil works, with dubiousness, craftiness, lies and deception; though we may qualify ourselves as believers on earth, in the eyes of humans, we cannot deceive Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, he knows what we do, cf. Psalm 69:5; on the day of reconciliation, he will view us as workers of iniquities, cast us away from his sight into the furnace of fires.
Dearly beloved, as humanity, we were placed on earth to worship our Father, enjoy his sustenance, and live happily thereafter; until the fall of Adam and Eve, their disobedience in the garden of Eden, the ground was cursed by our Father, we have to work for a living, though we till the ground for food ourselves, we still have to be grateful for his providence; for he makes the rain fall on the ground to bring forth its proceeds, nourish, and sustain our souls: notice this, when Abel worked, brought the firstlings of his proceeds before our Father, because of his respect, gratefulness, and undeceivable heart towards him, his offerings was accepted by our Father; on the other hand, Cain his brother's heart was deceitful, therefore, his offerings was not special, but worthless before our Father and was rejected; cf. Genesis 4: believers, the same concept goes with our service to Jesus Christ, our Father never changes, he is the same, today, and forever shall be; for he will bring every work into judgment. every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. cf. Eccl. 12:14; therefore, let us do the will of Jesus Christ, wherever we find ourselves in this world, be kind, tenderhearted towards people with diverse backgrounds, love them: serve the Lord with faithfulness, intergrities, and joyfulness of hearts, receive earthly blessings, crown of glories in heavenly places, be joint heir with Jesus Christ forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 6:45
(45) A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
SEARCH ME, OH LORD!
Brethren, King Solomon said, "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life."; what a powerful statement! he said the issues of our lives lays within our hearts; therefore, let us watch over what we intake into our hearts, spiritually, or physically; endeavor to protect our hearts from infiltration spirits, to hurt ourselves or other people; for that is where our lives began; avoid overburdening the hearts with garbages, such as excessive drunkenness, gluttony, formulating lies, slanderings, bite-bitings, gossips, holding grudges, and malice against one another; for garbage goes in, garbage will definitely comes out; rather, let us release all burdens of our hearts unto Jesus, watch what we intake into our hearts, spiritually and physically, to have good health, and live longer years.
Many times, we speak what is on our minds to one another, but little do we discern that our words are powerful, and are the expressions of what is stored in our hearts; the mind and the heart, interacts as a chain reaction, trans information processing mechanism, designed to engineer, propel the physical body to survive on earth: as humans, we, tend to ponder on issues pertaining to life at all times; but, before we act upon any thought; the brain mechanism, releases the information onto our hearts, and once the heart receives the information from our minds, it becomes readily available for our tongues, to bring forth into existence through spoken words or physical gestures; whether good or evil works.
Consequently, let us think good thoughts about things, including fellow brothers and sisters from all walks of life; ponder on thought processes, make sure that we are not being tempted by the enemy to speak ill or do evil works against others; search our hearts truthfully to discern the issues, burdens of our hearts, carefully, think about our words before we speak things into existence; at times, we ought to bite our tongues, lay our fingers upon our mouths, to hold off communicating issues of our hearts onto wrong hands, to endanger our lives or lives of others.
Dearly beloved, the world is watching our movements, and listening to our utterances at all times, to perceive if we are true lights of the world of darkness; subsequently, let us mind our connotations, think wisely before we speak out our thoughts to others; never allow any unsavory communications come forth our mouths, only that which is wisely to anoint, empower, encourage, inspire, uplift other people spirits; always exemplify ourselves in Christ, that the lights of his glory may shine through us, to affect positive changes in the world of darkness; therefore, let us be regenerated in the spirits of our minds, in the newness of ourselves, in the righteousness of our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. King David, the Psalmist wrote; cf. Psalm 139:23-24: Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) MATTHEW 23:23-24
(23) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
(24) Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
SEEK JUSTICE, MERCY, AND FAITH
Brethren, throughout the ministration of Jesus Christ on earth, enemies persecuted him: the scribes and Pharisees viewed him as a radical person, who does not know too much about the law; therefore, they followed him around, not necessarily to learn from him but to listen to his teachings, compared, to what the law says, judged his teachings and condemned him to death: do this resonate to preachers of today? maybe it does to some: at times we have to view things through spiritual lenses, and not be too judgemental towards one another, we spend too much time, judging one another, that we tend to wear the zeal and emotions of others down the drains, make them feel unworthy, and discouraged, to carry on the intended purposes of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior: this should not be so, let us be our brother's keepers, we are all in this together, the battle is already won, we are victorious in Jesus name. Amen!
Case in point, when Jesus came to earth, he was given an assignment, to introduce the kingdom words unto humanity, before his ministration, no one knew what Jesus's mission was or what laid dormant within his spirits yet to offer humanity; until the appointed time was ripe to unveil his assignment, to minister the kingdom words of our Father; though, there existed the law given by our Father through Moses; Jesus, had a new chapter to introduced, an addendum to what was already given by Moses; in present times, there are many chosen oracles of Jesus Christ, ministering his words through the Holy Spirit; therefore, many times, believers will hear newer teachings, instructions, inspirations from the Holy Spirit, that are not recorded, supported by the scriptures; nonetheless, they are being given by the Holy Spirits for his purposes; that should be enough for believers, to listen, assimilate, and follow through his purposes; this is the point, whereby believers have to be careful, not to blaspheme words of the Holy Spirit, cf. Matthew 1231; nor judge his oracles, for they are messengers of his words, not of their own carnal minds; rather, be in spirits, think wisely, search hearts to know the truthfulness of matters; for they may be an addendums to the kingdom words; for, the Holy Spirit was given after Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, to teach believers all things of the spirits... cf. John 14:26; we live in the world without end. cf. Isaiah 45:17; therefore, the kingdom of heaven deliberates, determines, orchestrates earthly issues at all times, to implement newer strategic plans and solutions to problems of this world full of darkness.
In the above text, Jesus warned the Pharisees, saying woe unto you; and called them hypocrites, but who were these Pharisees Jesus was referring to? they are traditional, religiosities, who had the zeal, upheld, valued the law than acknowledged its spirituals aspects, and intended purposes, why it was given by our Father, rather, they viewed themselves as holier than others, would not fellowship with people they categorised as sinners, those who did not fully obeyed the laws of Moses: they were too righteous, followed every law carefully, defended, interpreted the traditions of the law: though they had good intentions, our Father did not need their help to upheld the law; therefore, Jesus came to earth with an addendum to the law, but they opposed him, and his disciples as well, for everything he said, or did was wrong, and unacceptable in their eyes: from disobedience to the law of the Sabbath; criticizing his disciples for not washing their hands before sitting at the dinner table to eat food; to his turning over the tables in the temple, for unwise trading practices in the house of prayers; which also lead to his allegations, persecution, prosecution, afflictions, sufferings, and death on the cross; due to the facts that the Pharisees viewed themselves as "holier than thou", they missed the basic points of Jesus's ministry; which was to introduce, salvation through faith, and of his kingdom words; versus, salvation through atonements of animal blood sacrifices, practices of daily rituals, rules, regulations; therefore, Jesus called the Pharisees blind guides, stock up leaders, who would cast away flies, (the poor), but swallow up camels. (associate with dignitaries); today, if Jesus Christ should come back to earth; what would be our statuses? would they be that of the Pharisees or that of believers? this is a point to ponder on! Let us accomodate one another regardless of who they are in the body of Christ! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) MATTHEW 7:13-14
(13) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
(14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
THE OPEN DOORS
Brethren, interestingly, it is human to follow the multitude; for example, in public vicinities, because of uncertainty manifestations of evil works, everyone is on the edge to run for their lives; at times, in the middle of nowhere when we see people ran from one direction to the opposite direction, without knowing what may be their reasons for the escape, automatically, we join the stampede as well; such is life, we copy what we see others do, however, many times, we copy blindly, and lead ourselves into troubles and failures in life; it's alright to run for our lives, when in dangers; however, let us not copy others blindly, the negative attitudes and behaviors of present times, to fall into damnation: when we are being tempted to copy what other people do; let us pray to search our hearts, discern the rightful pathways of the Holy Spirit's intended purposes for our lives.
In the above text; Jesus is saying to believers, go in through the narrow doorway: because, the wider the doorway of life, the broader the way, that leads to damnation, and many people are going to that direction: therefore, let us not go with the flow, but pray and ponder on things of these present times, before we decide to associate ourselves, or accept them as worthy of our lives: there is another door in this life, which is narrower, and leads into a narrow doorway; but this door is not an easy doorway for humanity to tread upon, this doorway has rocky mountains, including bumps, thorns, and thistles of life; therefore, to go through this doorway, one has to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, cast away the deeds of the old selves, put the whole armor of our Father, walk in his righteousness, enjoy grace, with peace, joy, hope of the second coming of Jesus Christ and life everlasting: the doorway is open to all!
Brethren, it may seem difficult to humanity to go through the narrow way; but it's not so at all, Jesus made it easier for everyone to get through the door; how? he suffered, died on the cross, paid for all our present, past, and future sins, set humanity free from bondage of sins forever; no matter what we did in the past lives, doing currently, all does not matter to Jesus Christ; what matters to him most, is for humanity to make the necessary efforts, turn towards the narrow doorway, that leads into eternal life; once we accept Jesus Christ, believe in him; the Holy Spirit indwells our spirits, to help us on the journey of faith, in his righteousness into eternity: therefore, let us come unto him with all our labors and heavy laden, have rest for our souls; this is the bottom line of salvation! Amen and Amen!

(KJV..) 1 CORINTHIANS 2:14-16
(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.
(15) But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
(16) For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Brethren, mysteriously, no one born of the flesh, been able to fully perceive, discern all things of the universe; past and present, scientists, scholars, scribes research, tirelessly, endlessly, trying to figure out the mysteries of creation; no one have been able to conclude on their findings, on how the world came into existence, or how all things works together for the benefit of humanity: this is the mystery, that lies within the spirits; therefore, our Father reveals secrets of creation, through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, to enlighten believers discernments of the things of his spirits.
In physicalities, an ordinary person, an unbeliever, who have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, cannot have revelations of the things of the Spirit of our Father; for they are revealed only to believers, who have received the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit; cf. I Corinthians 2:10; therefore, unbelievers, without the Holy Spirit, cannot spiritually discern things of the Spirits for they are nonsensical to their hearings and perceptions; therefore, let us not get upset with people who do not understand what the Holy Spirit may be doing spiritually in our lives, but have patience until times of manifestations of his purposes, they will join to uphold the glory of the Lord in our lives.
As humans, whenever we fall asleep every nighttime, we dream several dreams throughout the night before dawn breaks; however, dreams are spiritual, but not the same as spiritual revelations; though dreams are similar in manifestations: what is a dream? a dream, is basically what we see, as ongoing imaginary events, occurring like movies on human minds while asleep; spiritual revelations occur in the same manners; this is where many are confused, and cannot understand their dream experiences, whether they are ordinary dreams or revelations yet to manifest in their lives; when confused about things of the spirits, let us not discard them as nonsensical manifestations, rather pray, ask the Holy Spirit for the meanings, understandings of what was shown, never worry too much about any dream, or its manifestation, but after prayers, leave everything in the hands of our Father; whether good or evil, let us give thanks to the Lord, rebuke the evil plans of the enemy, and wait for the manifestations of the blessings; Joseph son of Jacob, told his dreams to his family members, thereafter he was hated by his own siblings, despite their evil plots and plans against him, they could not stop his dreams from fulfilments. cf. Genesis 37-50; therefore, believers, no one can overshadow the glory of Jesus Christ in our lives, have faith in him!
People who are anointed by the Holy Spirits, such as prophets, visioners, dreamers, preachers, and ministers, etc. are instruments, vessels, mouthpieces of our Father; when they minister words of our Father, those words do not come from their carnal minds, but from the indwelling powers of the Holy Spirit; many times, their words are that of inspirational, encourageable, empowerments, comfort: at times, reproving and arbitrariness; cf. John 16:8; regardless, let us receive those words in good faith, know that they are of our Father, assimilate, acknowledge, obey, be blessed in Jesus Name. Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 17:12-15
(12) And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
(13) And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
(14) And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
(15) And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God.
THE DESIGNATED DESIGNATIONS
Brethren, in this chapter, Jesus went to Jerusalem, as he went into a certain village, he saw ten lepers standing far off, when they saw Jesus, they lifted up their voices, said unto him; Master, have mercy on us; Jesus said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests: this was unbelievable! these men were lepers who needed to be cleansed of their infirmities; Jesus did not heal them right away, yet, he commanded them to go, and show themselves to the priests: per the law of Moses, whenever a leper was cleansed from leprosy, he will be brought to the priests, and they will take him outside the camp, to verify, make sure that the leprosy was completely healed, cf. Lev. 14:2-3; in this case, Jesus asked them to go, show themselves to the priest, when they were not yet cleansed of their infirmities? what was the reaction of these lepers? they obeyed Jesus, pleaded not with him, but by faith, proceeded to see the priests; however, before they got to the priest's office, miraculously, on their way there, the ten lepers received healings of their infirmities: the question is, what would have happened to them, if they did not obey the commandment of Jesus Christ to see the priests? this a point to ponder on!
There are two lessons to take from this text; first of all, the lepers, believed in Jesus Christ, that he is capable of healing them, before they approach him for deliverance; when Jesus asked them to see the priests, though they were not yet healed, they did not beg Jesus for instant miracles to cure them, but humbly obeyed his words, went their ways, and got deliverances from leprosy: same ways, whenever believers listen to the counsels of the Holy Spirit, allow him to guide their pathways of life, trust and obey him; though at times, they may not understand his mysterious ways, if they obey him, they will experience miracles in their lives; for, to obey is better than sacrifice. cf. 1 Samuel 15:22; secondly, the lepers believed Jesus, and acted upon his words, proceeded into their breakthroughs; therefore, today, if we have received words of encouragements from the Holy Spirit, let us be strengthened to act upon his will, there are greater benefits, blessings for those who believe in him, not that alone, but also do his will; let us rise up, proceed to various designated destinations in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Guess what happened next, after the ten lepers were cleansed? ungratefully, only one of the lepers, who was a Samaritan, came back with a loud voice, glorified our Father through Jesus Christ; many times, believers take things for granted, simply because they are redeemed, have salvation, enjoying grace; regardless, the Lord delights in our appreciations, praises, and adorations, whenever he shines his lights of favors upon our lives; therefore, when we receive the goodness and mercies of the Lord, let us acknowledge him as the giver, praise, thank and give him all the glory; whether we feel blessed or not, let us acknowledge his presence, so long as we are alive, we are blessed in Jesus Name! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 5:13-15
(13) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
(14) Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
(15) Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick, and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
SHINE, SHINE, SHINE!
Brethren, Jesus spoke in an analogy, referring to believers as salt of the earth: salt we all know is a common substance, sodium, used as a condiment to season, enhance flavor of delicacies or used as preservatives; in inference, if believers are salt of world, to flavor, exemplify ourselves in Christ as flavorful condiments, to affect positive changes, where there are negatives, then, let us not lose our savor, but stay connected to who we are, utilise our gifts and talents to savor the world of darkness.
Believers are also lights of the world; therefore, let us shine as lights, wherever we find ourselves in this world; as lights, our presence, deflects darkness, lightens vicinities to touch people lives with the gospel, show kindness to people we come across every day, whether, co-workers in the secular world, families and friendship circles, strangers in elevators, shopping malls, transit stations, hospitals beds, grocery stores etc.; no matter who they are, crippled, blind, lame or whole; let us show love and care about them as Jesus Christ did during his ministration on earth; if we exemplify ourselves in him, our lights will never run out of illuminations or quench entirely, but rather they will shine, brighten up, to lighten pathways of lost souls out of the world of darkness into the marvellous lights of Jesus Christ, that which we dwell; substantially, our light will continue to replenish themselves from the Father of lights until the end of our days.
Dearly beloved, let us serve the Lord, with all our hearts, souls, might; for the greater our services to him, greatest are our rewards on earth and eternity; therefore, let us shine our lights, stand together as one body, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. cf. Ephesian 4:5-6. Let us shine, shine, and shine! Amen and Amen!

THE VIRTUE OF SPIRITS
Brethren, despite the facts, that humanity is diversified in faith, race, genders and skin colors, we are all children of the highest Father, Jesus Christ is the bread of life, which came from heaven to give life to the world. cf. John 6:33; therefore, Jesus is life to the world, if we live in this world, whether saved or unsaved, regardless of what type of faith or ethnicities, directly or indirectly, we are in Christ, and belong to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Inferentially, in the beginning, our Father created man out of the dust of the ground, breathed into his nostrils breath of life, the man became a living soul. cf. Genesis 2:7; Jesus was the word, spoken from the spirit of our Father, to create all things of the world; subsequently, if our Father, breathed his breath of life into the nostrils of man, for man to become a living soul, and within the breath of our Father lies his words, then the spirit of Jesus Christ dwells in every living soul saved or unsaved likewise; therefore, from the foundation of the world, till present times, every living soul born into this world, has the word, which is Jesus Christ within their innermost spirits; regardless of our faith originations, or intellect, there are spirits of Jesus Christ living within our mortal bodies, channeled through by the breath of our Father during creation of man: cf. Genesis 1:27.
Many times, when believers talk about the body of Christ, we narrow it down to Christendom alone, believers and followers of Jesus; however, Jesus is in all things of creation, including the breath of man; cf. Colossians 1:16-18, "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church; who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence."
Significantly, the whole world belongs to Jesus Christ, whether we accept the facts or not; from the beginning of creation: Jesus was there with our Father, not only that but was the word spoken during creation, cf. John 1:1-5; he is within all things created both in heaven and on earth: after his ministry on earth, Jesus ascended into heaven, became the foundation head of the Christian body, through his ministry, came the Christian faith establishment, known as, "the body of Christ"; however, the whole world is the body of Christ; not just Christendom alone; though many people have their own beliefs; regardless, of their beliefs; collectively, the fact is, we all belong to Jesus Christ in all aspects of our lives.
For, through him, we have life within mortal bodies, before we were dust formed out of the ground: also, Jesus came to earth, born in the flesh, shed his blood, experienced death on the cross, paid for all our sins, rose up again from dead, to grant believers life everlasting; therefore, by the virtue of spirits, Christ is the Lord of all; through him, we perceive the power and glory of our Father; for he said, "I and my Father are one." cf. John 10:30; Jesus said, .......apart from me, ye can do nothing. cf. John 15:5; subsequently, whether, saved or unsaved, spirit of Jesus dwells within us, we dwell within his body: when Jesus ascended into heaven, the Holy Spirit came, as the comforter, a companion for believers, to teach them all things of the spirits, cf. John 14:26; therefore, for humanity to enjoy the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, have peace in this world, let us come unto him, accept him into our hearts, as Lord and Savior of the world, regenerate our souls, have salvation, grace, the hope of eternal glory forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ROMANS 8:33-34
(33) Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
(34) Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
THE ENDLESS LIFE
Brethren, after we are redeemed of the Lord, walk in his righteousness, resist fleshly temptations, the rules, and standards of the spirit of life, within Jesus Christ, sets us free from the law of sin and death; though the law was given to humanity by our Father through his servant Moses; the law could not set people free entirely from their iniquities; rather the law weakened human emotions most of the time; for no one was righteous enough, not to violate any given rule or regulation; therefore, during that era, priesthoods performed animal blood sacrifices, daily rituals for purifications, atonements of sins on daily basis.
Subsequently, our Father looked upon the earth, sends Jesus Christ his only begotten Son, born of the flesh, to experience what goes on in the flesh, introduced the kingdom message, at the end of his ministration, offered him as a sacrificial lamb, slaughtered on the cross, shed his blood once and for all, paid for our past, present and future sins, and that eliminated daily animal blood sacrifices, that whenever we trespass against him, humble ourselves, pray for our wrong doings, that same blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross covers multitudes of sins.
Therefore, if we are redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ, walk in his righteousness, who can point accusing fingers at believers, whom our Father has chosen out of darkness into his marvelous light? no one can accept Jesus Christ! for Jesus Christ affirms us free from all sins; therefore, who can lay charges against believers, it is only Jesus Christ who shed his blood to redeemed believers, died on the cross, buried in the tomb, rose up again from the dead, grant salvation, grace, eternal lives to all those who accept, believe in him as Lord and Savior; seated on right hand of our Father, advocating the Father for our transgressions.
Brethren, the law made nothing perfect, but Jesus Christ did, he died to pay for all our sins, and by his grace, we are in good standings with our Father, have salvation, the hope of his second coming and eternal lives; therefore, Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but by him. cf. John 14:6; today, if we are not yet in Jesus, it is time, to come unto him, have salvation, free grace, and eternal lives. Amen and Amen!
QUOTES OF THE DAY:
(KJV.) Revelation 12:10-11 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death.
