May the departed souls all over the world, rest in perfect peace! Peace be unto you as well! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) 1 CORINTHIANS 4:12
(12) And labour, working with your own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it.
DO GOOD FOR EVIL WORKS!
Grace be to you! as believers, we must emulate Christ, in all his ways; therefore, let us labour, working with our hands, do his will diligently, work his works without any fear of foes, serve one another on earth, as we follow the footsteps of Christ, chances are, we will also experience his sufferings, attacks, mockeries and reproaches; what do we do? we do not retaliate evil with evil, rather, we bless the enemies; why? because Jesus prayed for his enemies, even on the cross of death, saying, Father forgive them for they know not what they do. ... cf Luke 23:34; also, if his persecutors knew the end results of their evil behaviours, they would not have crucified him: but, Jesus knew the end results of his assignment; for the Father gave him the detailed information, as to what will happen at the end of his assignment; therefore he suffered, scrounged, crucified, buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, received the promise of a name above all names, crown of glory, seated at the right hand of God, as an advocate, ruler of heaven and earth, reigns forever more: the question is, do we know the end results of our callings? hmmm! therefore, let us endure the sufferings at present times for greater glories yet to come. Jesus Christ is faithful, and will reward souls according to their works, be it good or evil!
Beloved, if we are being persecuted for righteousness sake, let us bear the sufferings, take it in with joy, though it may be unbearable, bear it with the strength of Jesus Christ, he knows what is going on, discern that the negative experiences for his sake, are not in vain, ruled out of our lives, but are being recorded in the heaven books of records, for future greater rewards. cheer up, it is not over yet! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(1) I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
(2) With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
(3) Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
KEEP THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT!
Grace be unto you, as workers in the vineyard of glory, hired to do the will of Jesus Christ, in the world of darkness, territories of spiritual encumbrances, demonic infiltration spirits; let us always be alert, in spirit, focus on our works, behavioral attitudes, and integrities.
Believe it or not, there are unforeseen, camouflage temptations, enticements, allurements, plots and plans of the enemy, satanic agents, operating around the elects of Jesus Christ, at all times; for example, King Solomon was a highly favored king, God gave him wisdom and riches beyond measures, yet, spirits of Jezebel, enticed him to transgress against God, at the end of his life, he became unfavourably in the eyes of God, cf. 1 King chapters 1-11; another example, Saul, was a chosen King for Israel, he started his reign successfully, but did not finish successfully, at the end of his life, he committed suicide. cf. 1 Samuel chapters 10-31; therefore, the beginner of a race, is not the winner yet of the race; but the winner is the finisher of the race, the one who overcomes all the trials, temptations, qualifies for the price. cf. Revelation 3:21; let us work for the purification of our souls, inherit the crown of glories and eternal lives.
Saints, as chosen vessels of Jesus Christ, called by grace, let us focus on our callings, the most important prospects of our lives, serve with humility attitudes, under all circumstances, be patient with others, endure all hardships without complaints, accommodate one another with love, keep the unity of the Spirit, bound together in peace, that the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit may flow his mighty powers through our hearts, to perform his miracles, signs, and wonders on earth. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) EPHESIANS 5:2
(2) And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savor.
QUALITY ASSURANCE LOVE
Brethren, love is a verb, an action word, when we express love to others, whether through body gestures, written, facial or verbal expressions, regardless of vicinities, closer or longer distances, we impact the hearts of souls with love; therefore, let the sweet smelling fragrance of love reign supreme in our hearts towards others, as Jesus Christ loved us, gave himself as an offering, and a sacrificial lamb to God, for a sweet smelling savor, redeemed souls out of bondage of iniquities, gave them the freedom from past, present and future sins by his sacrificial blood grace.
In essence of love, Jesus offered himself as a sacrificial lamb for you and me to have salvation, unconditional free grace, hope and eternal lives; it is only fair, to love one another in this world, regardless of differences, always give people the benefit of the doubts, discern and consider the underneath principles of behaviors, speak love into hearts, walk in love, make the efforts to reach out and touch someone with love: let brotherly love continue. (Hebrews 13:1)
Saints, let us unite with tenderly love to do the will of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the time is upon us to jingle the bell of salvation throughout the world; whether we like it or not, we are in this body together, it is not the time of resentments, it is the time to think thoughtful thoughts, lay aside differences, embrace love and unity, look out for one another: love conquers it all! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) GALATIANS 4:6
(6) And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
FATHER, O' FATHER!
Brethren, no matter how rich and powerful fathers may be on earth, there are certain times of life, whereby the love of fathers, positive influences, treats of cookies, and candies can never pacify a soul; at times, we get to certain crossroads of life, whereby a soul may have to make certain life altering decisions in other to set themselves free from the grids of the flesh, cling on the spirit, to have salvation, free grace, the internal peace of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and everlasting life.
As humans, born into the darkness of this world, from youth to preteen, and adulthood years; we are under the supervision of parents, guardians, teachers, managers, etc., until unexpectedly we encounter unforeseen pitfalls of life; now, what is the next thing to do, how can we overcome the struggles, set ourselves free from it all? the answer is with a question, do we have the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit yet?
If we do, then, there should be no worries in storms of life, but rather praises, thanksgivings, and adorations; as believers, the indwelling Holy Spirit, comforter, intervenes on our behalves during downcasting moments with groanings that cannot be altered, crying, Abba Father; to have mercy, attend to predicaments, because we are his sons and daughters and joint heirs with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, believers are not alone in any type of predicaments, cheer up, we dwell in Jesus, Jesus dwells in God the Father, the Holy Spirit dwells within our hearts, we are all connected together walking and cheering up into victories and peace everlasting; trust in Jesus!
Dearly, Beloved, there are vacuums within souls, that nothing of this life can occupy; that space was made available only to contain Jesus Christ; therefore, at times we go through life seeking worldly things, enjoyments only to find out later on that all is vanity, that we still need Jesus Christ, today, is something bothering you within your soul? may be it is time to come to Jesus, overload your burdens upon his shoulders, the Holy Spirit will take control, be peaceful, rest in him. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ACTS 10:34-35
(34) Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth, I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
(35) But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness is accepted with him.
COME TO JESUS!
Brethren, as humans, we perceive the outward appearance of things, judge others by statuses, races, genders, and ethnic traits; this is not so with God, the Father, though he gives abundance grace to his beloved children on earth, he is not a respecter of persons, nor does he regard the affluent, intellect, wisdom, power and authority of men; he looks at the whole earth as one piece of art, created by his mighty hand and rides upon his majestic chariot over the firmament of glory, look upon the hearts of humanity, to see who is god-fearing, with the attributes of righteousness, to them he proves and favors as beloved ones; therefore, there should be no divisions on earth, among humanity, we are from the same Father, and one eternal family; as it is in heaven, let be so on earth.
Fruits of thought, King David's heart was perfect with God, however, anytime, he transgressed against him, he was chastened for his transgressions; read. 2 Samuel 11; the dilemma of Uriah the Hittite, and Bathsheba his wife; though King David pleaded for his transgressions, and wrote Psalm 51; yet he received punished for his transgressions; in another instance, 2 Samuel 24; Satan stood against Israel, provoked King David to number Isreal, he transgressed against God; in all these circumstances, the beloved, man after God's own heart, received chastening for his transgressions; thank God for Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and advocate, when we show remorse for our transgressions, his blood avails much, we receive the forgiveness of God; the question today is; are deliberate sins forgiven without repercussions? this is a point to ponder on!
Dearly, Beloved, there is no Jew or Gentile, born or free, believer or unbeliever, collectively, we are children of the highest God, Jesus Christ is a brother to all souls, the Lord and Savior of the world; if we fear God, work in the righteousness of Jesus Christ, we have salvation, free grace, and eternal lives; today, is not too late to come, accept him as Lord and Savior, tomorrow might be too late, the whirlwind of Hell's damnation is on the move, elevated to a higher position; let us quickly get into the boat of salvation, be safe, and have eternal lives: are you coming? Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(1) Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven.
DO DIVINITY SERVE HUMANITY?
Brethren, David the Psalmist wrote saying; the earth is the LORD's and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein. cf. Psalm 24:1; truly! as humans, we may claim birthrights as rulers over things of the earth; no one really owns anything on this earth, Jesus Christ owns it all; even our days on earth are numbered before him; therefore, let us dwell in righteousness before him, serve him, do unto others as we wish for ourselves.
Fruit of thought; as caretakers, each and every soul has a part to play on earth to complete the cycle of service; God the Father created all things through Jesus Christ, served Adam with Eve his wife, and up till present times, he still serves humanity through Jesus Christ, gives them their hearts desires; if divinity serves humanity; how about you and me? the fact remains the same, whether we serve family members at home, the managers in the secular world or Jesus Christ in his body, we all serve one another in this world; we all have supervisors watching over our souls to reward our deeds accordingly; however, at times, things do not turn out favourably, unfairness and injustices may prevail against a soul under the sun; this can happen, many times within the household establishments as well; one child may be favourable than the other siblings; this type of favouritism is unrighteous in the eyes of Jesus Christ, but happens unconsciously; therefore, regardless of circumstances, situations, diversities, and ethnicities, etc., be just and equal, treat people fairly, reward them accordingly, do unto others as we wish upon ourselves.
Dearly, Beloved, be fair to be equal opportunity, believers, with justice, mercy and truth, never play favoritism or cheat others of their wages, reward accordingly; give honor where honor is due, call a spade a spade; yes, a yes; no, a no; be fair to one another; for there is a supreme judge of all the judges, Jesus Christ, watching over the affairs of every human heart; to perceive, if there are attributes of mercy, compassionate, faithfulness, trustworthiness, justice, and judgment among humanity to reward them according to their works; regardless of who we serve, how we offer the service to one another, and what types of expectations received on this earth; there is an eternal reward for all services rendered on this earth, with or without employer's incentives; therefore, let us not grow weary in right doings, but serve one another with joyfulness of hearts: "Masters, treat your workers fairly, for the judge is at the door, rewarding according to our deeds." Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(15) And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
HELP, O' LORD!
Brethren, as humanity, when injustice prevails against us, what do we do? we protest, rebel, fight for what we believe is justifiable, at times with revengeful, destructive spirits; this type of actions, behaviors should never be practiced by believers; why not?; first of all, all things of this world are of the LORD's, cf. Psalm 24:1: if so, then, no one owns anything under the sun, all things are the blessings of the LORD to enjoy under the sun: cf. Genesis 1:28-30; therefore, if injustices prevail against us, never fight for anything, but with prayers and supplications, make requests be known to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, he will recompense.
Secondly, this world is not our permanent home, we are sojourners, we brought nothing into this world, and surely, we can carry nothing out of it; everything is given under the sun for enjoyment, therefore, whether we are mistreated by others, have little or many blessings, regardless, let us appreciate and enjoy life, be happy with what Jesus Christ has given, focus on what matters, the eternal blessings of the LORD; King Solomon wrote, cf Ecclesiastes1:14, 16; everything else is vanity and vexation of spirits.
At times, when we perceive the blessings of others, we may feel like failures; however, there are no failures in this world, not all the fingers are equal in sizes; therefore, not all souls are born to be rich on earth, there is a god intended purposes for each and every soul; for example, Judas Iscariot, a disciple of Jesus Christ, was with him throughout his assignment, yet, he was called to betray him at the end of his ministry; another example, Jesus healed a blind man who was born blind, that the glory of the LORD, may be seen among the heathen, cf. John chapter 9: therefore, regardless of what human perception is of this world, the fact is, to seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness and all other things shall be added unto you. cf. Matthew 6:33; never worry about worldly possessions.
Dearly, Beloved, injustice is another doorway of the enemy, to obstruct the peace of believers, no one can escape it altogether, when we suffer injustices, as believers, embrace injustices with the arms of godliness, never fight for ourselves, justice belongs to Jesus, he will surely recompense; positively, pray, rebuke the provoking spirits away, sing songs of praises, overload cares upon the shoulders of Jesus Christ, thank him, think and walk in victory, put the devil to shame. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

THE TASTE IS IN THE PUDDING?
Brethren, we live in a mysterious, gigantic, never-ending world; there is no soul living on earth that can put together the pieces of the puzzle of how the world came into existence, except the maker of all things, and his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; whatever we perceive happening physically on earth, has a spiritual foundation; the same concept goes for sowing and reaping; if we sow the fruit bearing seeds of righteousness, we exemplify ourselves as believers of Jesus Christ; bearing the fruits of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, self-control, etc.; if we choose the path of ungodliness, continue to dwell in darkness, associate ourselves with the evil works of the dark, to follow after the lusts of the flesh, doing the deeds of the flesh, and enjoying ourselves; let us bear fruit of repentance, surrender all to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, before it is too late, to have salvation, enjoy grace and eternal lives.
For no man can fully discern the foundational roots of man, the physics, DNA structure, how God the Father created the brain mechanics to work the heart, the heart to work the veins, in other to peacefully flowing the blood through the mortal body, to engineer different parts of our bodies; the thought is too deeply for human imagination, though we can research human physics, how about that of the Spirit? this is a point to ponder on, but double check the fruit bearing tree, the answer is in the innermost spirit! we can discern by the underlining virtues of love, kindness, generosity, uprightness, justice, honesty, integrity mercy, and compassion; the attributes of God our maker, and that of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior: cf. Matthew 7:16-20: the taste is in the pudding!

(9) Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
PATIENT BUT READY!
Brethren, doing the will of Jesus Christ, requires patience and tolerance; the journey is not easy, as there are pitfalls, traps set up by the enemy to destabilize, derail, obstruct destinies; no matter how difficult the journey of faith may be, let us be encouraged to never throw in the towel, give up, walk away from doing the will of the one who called us out of darkness into his marvelous lights; rather, persevere, forbear, push against all odds, pray fervently, praise and worship the Lord, wait patiently for deliverance; for the day of Jesus Christ is at hand, when hardships, aches, pains will cease in the believer's lives.
As our callings into the body of Christ differs from one another, likewise our sufferings differ from one another; regardless of how we suffer for righteousness sake, Apostle James encourages us to be patient in sufferings, continue to persevere, do the will of Jesus Christ, sow seeds, wait patiently for the early and later rain, that we may receive the abundant harvest; for Jesus Christ is coming back soon to reward each and everyone according to works: as we wait upon him, let us not grow weary, tired in well doings; instill our hearts, continue to position ourselves in him, be readily available to receive his eternal rewards.
Dearly, Beloved, while we wait upon Jesus Christ to receive our blessings, avoid these three life loopholes where enemies penetrate, lure souls into subjection to evil works; the lust of the flesh, the eyes, and the pride of life. cf. 1 John 2:16; if we perceive the prosperity of others, never feel resentful, envious to bring condemnation upon ourselves; rather rejoice with them, in anticipation that very soon, we will receive the blessings of Jesus Christ, and rejoice as well: King Solomon, the Preacher wrote, to everything there is a season, a time to every purpose under heaven, ....a time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, a time to dance, etc.cf Ecclesiastes 3; whatever our seasons are today, good or bad, let us rejoice, be happy, make the most out of life.

(4) And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
(5) And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
Brethren, Saul, renamed Apostle Paul, was a persecutor, threatened and slaughtered Christians, at certain time, he gained the permission from the High Priest in Jerusalem to the Synagogues in Damascus to arrest believers, bring them into Jerusalem for persecution; on his way to carry out his plans, unfortunately, Jesus arrested him, a light shone around him, he fell to the earth, a voice said unto him, "Saul Saul, why are you persecuting me?" cf. Acts 9:1; the action of Jesus to stop Saul from accomplishing his agenda on believers, enlightens understandings that whatever goes on earth, day or night times, heaven perceives all things; therefore, let us beware of how we treat people of diversities under the sun: David the Psalmist wrote: The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. cf. Psalm 34:15.
Saul said who art thou Lord? ponder point; How did Saul discern Jesus to call him Lord? It was only by divine revelation; Jesus said unto him; I am Jesus whom thou persecuted: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. cf. 9:5; at times, we use our imaginations to decipher the code of Jesus; consequently, directly or indirectly we fight against our maker and our ourselves, but it is a difficult thing to fight against the intended purposes of God in human lives; fact is, Saul wanted to eliminate the Christian believers of that time, surprisingly, Jesus transformed his life from Saul the terrorist to Apostle Paul the Preacher, encourager, the writer of many New Testament books; therefore, regardless of our past lives, whether an armed robber, a prostitute, a sorcerer etc., it is never too late for Jesus Christ to transformed lives into instruments of glory; after he arrested Saul, he commanded him to go into the city, and he will receive instruction on what to do; cf. 9:6.
For three days, Saul became blind, ate no food nor drank water; (i) Jesus instructed Ananias the Apostle, in a dream to go into the street named Straight, ask for Saul, pray for him. cf 9:12; (ii) Jesus simultaneously appeared to Saul in a dream and instructed him that Apostle Ananias was coming over where he was to pray for him; though Ananias resisted, because of fear for his life; he obeyed the words of Jesus Christ, went and prayed for him, Saul, received the Holy Ghost, not only that, but also the scales fell from his eyes, he saw, rose up, was baptized and he did the will of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly, beloved, believers have nothing to fear, worry or have anxieties over; for Jesus watches over their souls at all times, to keep them from the evil hands of enemies; therefore, they are not alone in this world, but blessed and highly favored; be happy, rejoice and exceedingly glad, Jesus is in control of all things, repent, come unto him, have salvation, grace and eternal lives; today, if anyone has an instruction from Jesus Christ, through dreams, visions, prophecies, to do his will; obey his voice, for there are reasons for every instruction received from divinity. Jesus is waiting for you and me to answer his call, step up to the plate, do his will. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(13) But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
Brethren, regardless of a believer's spiritual power, intellect capability or status; there are certain times of life when strange phenomenon happens, that human imagination cannot fully understand how and why these things manifest in people lives; when in trails, regardless of how depress the condition may be, let us never lose hope in God, charge him foolishly, spiritually keep guards over mouths, not to use vain words against the Holy Spirit during prayers; rather surrender everything unto Jesus Christ, pray fervently, be faithful still, trust him that he is in control of all things, nothing ever happens to his siblings on earth that he had not conquered, overturned; in that respect, stay cool, calm and collected, and continue to wait upon him, Jesus is faithful, answers prayers, and brings things to pass by his unfailing grace.
Fruit of thought; remember that there is no smoke without an underline fire; therefore, every trail has an intended purpose of God, that is unknown to a soul during the time of suffering, but Jesus Christ knows about what is happening before it happens; therefore, when in trails, know for sure that Jesus is with you, strengthing and watching over you, he never allows too many sufferings to overwhelm a soul, but delivers on time, strengthens and settles them after the appointed season of the testing is over: as believers in Jesus Christ, sufferings are package deals, therefore, let us not look at suffering negatively, but rejoice that something greater will surface in the sufferers life; there is a time of death and a time of resurrection: when enemies killed Jesus, they thought they were victorious, surprisingly, Jesus resurrected from the grave, with victory that no one is able to overturn, but established forever; he is coming back again soon; are you ready for him? if not yet, time is running out, come, with the heart of repentance, receive and believe in Jesus, have salvation, free grace, peace, a hope of his second coming and eternal life.
Dearly beloved, today, if anyone is in sufferings, be encouraged to read the book of Job entirely, to discern how heaven allows sufferings to manifest in believers lives, because of who they are, their faithfulness to God, his love for them; ponder, "I did not know that Jesus love me so much to allow me to partake of his sufferings, he loves me, smile, be happy, relax and enjoy the ride of victory into intended purposes of power, greater glory, grace and everlasting life.

Brethren, let us guard our minds against infiltration spirits, for once we allow them to gain control of our thought processes, there are no limitations on what they will instigate, provoke anyone who is not in spirit to manifest; the mind is the body mechanism; (i) infiltration spirits targets people minds to take control of their thought processes, momentarily, to devise evil works; therefore, let us think wisely, ponder on thoughts that enter into our minds before taking the necessary steps of actions; (ii) if not careful, once the evil plans of infiltration spirits entered into a mindset and are accepted by the individual, the next point of contact is the heart, from the mindset into the heart, and from the heart onto the action plate; therefore, let us guard our hearts against evil surmising spirits; if they are able to enter into our mindsets, we can still rebuke them away before they gain assess to our hearts to manifest evil works; (iii) when a soul allows an infiltrations spirit assess a mindset, the infected souls behave in an unusual mannerisms, such as, evil connotations, eye services or body gestures.
Regardless of how we bring forth the treasures of our heart to others, once we release what is in our heart through the words of mouth and attitudes, we create a mark upon ourselves that cannot be erased, retrieved, or cast away from people mindsets; therefore, as believers, let us emulate Christ in thoughts and deeds, walk righteously before him; the Psalmist wrote, 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. cf Psalm 139:23-24; therefore, once a while, we need to purge our hearts of filthiness, the deadly issues that we tend to hang on to, that does not pertain to godliness, salvation, and eternal lives; replace them with tenderly love, kindness, serving one another.
Dearly Beloved, whatever seeds implanted in our spirits, same fruits shall we bear; therefore, let us be careful of what types of seeds we lay an embargo on, within our hearts, that we bear good fruits, Jesus also said, Wherefore, by their fruits ye shall know them. cf. Matthew 7:20; therefore, the ways in which we relate to others, what we say, how we say what we say, matters to who we are within the innermost spirits, and outwardly statuses; our characteristics and mannerisms are under crucial scrutiny at all times; therefore, let us set good marks for ourselves; say what Jesus will say, and do what he will do, in his righteousness til everlasting life.

THE PATHWAYS OF LIFE
Brethren, from the look of how things are going in this twenty-first century; the only way to know the truth, walk in the righteousness of Jesus Christ, is to make the necessary efforts to read the scriptures ourselves; why? when we read his words, his words are not just ordinary words but are lights that illuminate within our spirits, to discern the pathways of life.
Knowing the truth of his words eliminates the lies and deceptions of the enemy, we perceive what is rightful from the wrongful ways of life; without knowing the truth of his words, we will follow and copy others blindly, walk in ungodliness, lose salvation and eternal lives: today's text, Apostle Paul is saying to believers, to be wise enough to discern the truth of the words of God, that they should resist temptations to backslide into sinful natures, to walk in ungodliness, but rather think carefully about what people say, discern the truth from the lies of their words, before we advise ourselves on what reactions to take; it the choices that we make that matters in life.
At times, we listen to the vain words of men, don't relate what they say to the scriptures, later on, we find ourselves in disobedience to the words of Jesus Christ; if that happens to anyone among us, it never too late to correct ourselves, make a turn away from our mistakes, come to Jesus, he will surely receive you back into his arms of righteousness, give you free grace, the second, third, fourth chances to make things right with him: however, after we must have known the truth of his words, let us be in spirit, not to backslide into our old ways, there are unforeseen consequences that prevail against souls for the choices they make under the sun, whether good or bad choices.
Dearly beloved, let us walk in love, as children of light, the light is the truth, the truth is the word, the word is Jesus Christ; therefore, let us read his words, know the truth, believe the truth, have the truth within; vain words of people, derail souls from his righteousness, salvation and eternal lives, when we find ourselves at the crossroads of life, pondering which pathway to take, the right thing to do is, to seek the face of Jesus Christ, read his words for enlightenments, pray fervently, praise, worship and thank him, receive divinely road maps to destiny, peace, joy, and everlasting life. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST MARK 13:12-13
(12) Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son: and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
(13) And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Brethren, there are two major attributes of humanity, love, and hatred, at any given moment of our lives, any of these two attributes can overtake human emotions, to strive or behave passionately towards others; therefore, as believers, it is necessary to incorporate prayers into daily mornings routines before heading out to the world, that the Holy Spirit, our guidance, take absolute controls of daily undertakings, direct our pathways, guide our thought processes, in his righteousness, not to resent people we interact with, but love one another as ourselves.
As the end times prophecies unfold, we can testify that strange things are happening all over the world; things that we have not seen before heard of, or read about in the scriptures; at times, we wonder what is going on in this world? the answer is simple, Jesus Christ is coming back again soon! therefore, we perceive strange phenomenon such as, a brother or sister, who is supposed to love one another, betray another sibling, at times, to point of death; in this generation, children are disrespectful to parents and would betray them to death if possible, rebellious for fame sake; these types of behaviors are abnormal, signs that the negativities of this world overwhelm human control, which is also a sign of end times; therefore, every soul needs Jesus Christ in their lives.
What can we do about it? let us assume control, all is not lost yet! we can do a little more work on our younger ones; before they mature into adulthood, give them the fundamental principles, to be God fearing responsible adulthoods; love them more, pay attention more, teach more, inspire more, encourage more, counsel more, use parental controls over the next generation before they mature into adulthood; it is the foundation that we build upon that matters; therefore, let us build them up upon biblical foundations, anything else will fail them at adulthood years.
Dearly beloved, as believers, Jesus said, we shall be hated of men for his name sake; therefore, many believers mention the name Jesus only when in prayer closets, anywhere else, they remain undercover, cautious to proclaim the name of Jesus among the heathens; friends, let us be bold Christians step up to the plate, go, teach all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost, cf. Matthew 28:19; endure hardships, long sufferings, forbear all things to the end for righteousness sake, receive crowns of glories, be joint heirs with Jesus Christ and eternal lives. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) JEREMIAH 4:22
(4) For my people is foolish, they have not known me: they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.
O' LORD, DELIVER US FROM EVIL!
Brethren, today, the voice of the Jeremiah, the prophet, cries out to the world, to turn away from wickedness, rebelliousness, ungodliness, and backslidings; he calls the people foolish because they have not known the ways of the LORD; despite the fact, that the word of the LORD is being spoken to turn them away from the wrath of God, iniquities continued to prevail against humanity; however, as believers, Jesus is our advocate to plead our cases, turn away the wrath of God by his blood grace, when we trespass against him; this grace is also available to all souls on earth, not just believers alone; however, one has to be under the umbrella of Christ's to enjoy his grace.
Fruit of thought, before the flood waters destroyed the earth, Prophet Noah, preached the word of God to warn the people of their ungodlinesses, but they turned death ears upon his words, no one listened or repented of their sins, but rather mocked him; while he built the Ark, they continued to indulged in iniquities until the fountain of the great deep was broken, the windows of heaven were opened, and the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights cf. Genesis 6: currently, we hear the gospel of repentance, salvation, and grace being preached around the clock, that Jesus is coming back soon; therefore, let's listen to what Jesus is saying to you and me today, per the scriptures; "And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." cf. Revelation 22:12-13. we also read that Prophet Noah and his family members were saved from the flood waters that destroyed the world by the grace of God; today, the question is, are you and I under the umbrella of Christ?
The fact is, we are in the era of end times; either we have not yet discerned the pre events before the dooms day of reconciliation when Jesus Christ appears in the skies to receive believers unto himself or we just don't care about what will happen to our souls on that faithful day; as a result, many souls, still prefer to be in darkness, drinking iniquities like water, cf. Job 15:16; though they might have heard the gospel preached on television medias all over the world or physically from missionaries, who penetrate the remote areas of the world, yet there are still souls who have not repented from ungodlinesses to receive Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, but believe in, worship mini-gods, delaying their salvation and eternal lives.
Dearly beloved, Jesus is saying, if there is anyone one in this world who have not turn over his or her heart to me, the time is running out for you, turn away from believing in other gods, believe in me, come to me now, don't waste anymore time, give our heart to me, tomorrow may be too late for you, repent of our sins today, have salvation, free grace, peace, joy, hope and everlasting life. Behold I come quickly! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

LET'S SOW GOOD SEEDS!
Brethren, there is a reward for everything we do under the Sun, whether good or evil; it does not matter who we are in this world, saved or unsaved, racial ethnicities or genders; when it comes to rewards time for our deeds on earth; the fundamental principle is the same, we reap whatever we sow; there are seed times and harvests times in every soul's life; therefore, let us mind what we do, say to people, how we associate, serve them; regardless of our emotional state of minds, never demean, degrade others, avoid hostility, rather be kind, tenderhearted, love, understandable to their needs, and try as much as possible to help them: for there are angels assign in heavenly places recording the deeds of every soul on earth; whether we are aware or not, the rewards of our deed on earth comes from Jesus Christ, everyone has a file cabinet in heaven where records are stored until the day of recompense; therefore, let us mind our works, what we sow on earth, that on the day of recompense, we receive the goodness and mercies of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, peace, joy and eternal lives. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) GALATIANS 5:13
(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.
LIBERTY IN CHRIST!
Brethren, as believers, the word liberty, references to grace, the freedom. privilege to leisurely do whatever we want without restraints or limitations; though grace was available to humanity from the foundation of the world, that grace was given side by side with the wrath of God, whosoever disobeyed him, received punishment as the consequence for violators his word; therefore, that grace was not really a free grace, because a clause was attached to his words to compromised, a price to pay for taking advantage of his grace.
Until Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior came into this world, experienced the level of pressures, at which the enemy tempts souls to violate the words of God; Jesus experienced temptations of the enemy in the wilderness, cf. Luke 4:1-13; and throughout his ministration, enemies set traps for his failure but he overcome them all; at the end of his assignment, alleged, persecuted for no apparent reasons, to the point of condemnation, crucifixion for the sins he did not commit; buried, when he resurrected, ascended into heaven, he gave the Father his feedback as to what is really going on with humanity in this world, pleaded the Father on our behalf, then free grace was given to those who will believe in Jesus, accept him into their heart as the Lord and Savior. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father, unless by him. cf. John 14:6; therefore, in Christ alone is salvation, free grace, hope, peace, joy and eternal life.
What happened next? Jesus position himself with his blood as the insurance coverage between humanity and the wrath of God, that anyone who believes in him, yet violates the commandments of God, his blood insurance coverage, picks up the price tag, pays for the wrath of God, sets the violator free by his blood; therefore, the true liberty, is in Jesus Christ, to him alone, is free grace.
Dearly, beloved, free grace is available to all those who believe in Jesus Christ; however, let us not abuse this grace, it was expensive, a life and blood was shed to pay for it; therefore, try not to abuse free grace as a license to violate the words of God; rather, realize how fortunate we are to receive and enjoy free grace without the wrath of God hovering over our lives; otherwise, no soul can withstand his wrath, in reference to the current behaviors of humanity, many times, we are in violation of his words; to think of what Jesus did freely for you and me, let us also love and serve one another, cast away resentments, come together as one body, with free grace of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(10) Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and is the same judgment.
THE CALL TO UNITE!
Brethren, let us give God the Father all the glory through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior every day; think of the way he created the world, worked all things together for the benefit of humanity; first of all, he formed man in his own image, breathe into his nostrils his own breath of life, placed them in a beautiful garden, full of fruits and vegetables to enjoy themselves, without hardship, his grace!; secondly, he gave them dominion to rule over all things of the earth; though, he being the creator and ruler of the universe of glory, yet, he withdrew his supremacy on earth, gave man the authority to rule over his creation; his grace!; thirdly, he cares so much about humanity, that gave them the book of life, guidelines, rules, and regulations, to follow, that man would live peaceably with one another, his grace! lastly, when sin prevailed against humanity, God the Father, gave his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, came to earth, ministered the Kingdom message to transform the heart of the sinful men into his righteousness, that they should not perish but have everlasting life; his grace!
Today's text taken out of Apostle Paul's letter to the church of God in Corinth, he encouraged the believers to be in unity, one accord, to preach the same concept of the gospel of Jesus Christ, to avoid misconceptions that cause divisions among brethren, but judge the people righteously with the same judgments; therefore, let us incorporate this advice into our lives as believers, love one another, unite, as one body of Christ, to preach the gospel truth, avoid divisions, such as "am for Apollos, am for Paul," strives, enviousness, slanderings, the putting down and pointing fingers, stand firmly in the faith, do the will of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; receive rewards of crown of glories and eternal lives.
Dearly beloved, again, let us unite, be in one accord with one another to serve Jesus Christ; the Holy Spirit works more effectively where there are unities and love atmospherics, for our heart is his temple, if our heart is not spiritually connected to one another in his body, chances are, there is not too much he can accomplish through us; the Psalmist wrote, if the foundation is destroyed what can the righteous do? Psalm 11:3; also, as we preach the gospel, let us endeavor to heal the sick, lepers, lames and the blind treading in and out of our churches on worship days; refer to book of Matthew 10:8. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) EPHESIANS 6:12
(12) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
THE DAY AND NIGHT?
Brethren, whether we refute the truth of the existence of spiritual warfares operating from world of darkness or not, we live in the darkness of this world, a world controlled by the devil and demonic spirits; and though the world rotates around the sun to cause daylight and nighttime; that does not matter to them; they will warfare with targeted preys to cause caustic and devastating situations in their lives; if you say, they do not really bother me, I will say good for you! regardless, we need to be aware of their existence, to determine how they orchestrate works of evil from the darkness to manipulate the minds, the heart of humanity, and destroy lives.
Many times, these spirits, also known as infiltration spirits, can influence people to do evil works for themselves, friends, family members, coworkers or at times innocent lives; for example, the devil influenced Adam and Eve to disobey the commandments of God in the garden of Eden; cf. Genesis chapter 3; it was the same evil spirit that infiltrated the heart of Cain to hate, strive with his brother Abel to death; Genesis 4:8; surprisingly, there is no level of authority that these spirits would not penetrate with evil works, they influence society with negativities, make people believe that whatever goes on in this world is approved of Jesus Christ because he paid for all our past, present, and future sins, they control the affairs of many governmental establishments, to focus on negative issues that do not pertain to the welfare of its people; another example of how crafty these spirits can operate, influence in the lives of godly people; King David was a man of God, but the devil provoked him to number Isreal cf. 2 Chronicles 21:1, the Lord was displeased with King David's behavior, and smote Isreal for his sins; David also, committed atrocity in the lives of Uriah the Hittite and his wife Bathsheba, cf. 2 Samuel chapter 11, there are many other instances recorded in the scriptures whereby godly people have fallen short of the glory of God because the influences of infiltration spirits.
Brethren; there are no limitations on how these spirits work the minds of souls to do evil works to themselves or others; therefore, let us pay attention to our thought processes, what we think of momentarily, whenever we think of a thought to endeavor on, ask ourselves, is this action alright with Jesus? Ponder on it, relate it to the scriptures, if of the devil, rebuke it away in the name of Jesus, and it will disappear into the oblivion, the devil is a liar, full of deceptions, believers walk in victory forever more.
Dearly beloved, there are spiritual wickednesses in high places targeting believers on the day and nighttime basis, but no weapon formed against us shall ever prosper, .....Isaiah 54:17; therefore, we will fear no evil, Jesus is within and around us, he is powerful and greater than what is in this world; however, let us be readily prepared to rebuke voices of infiltration spirits to do evil against ourselves and others, be careful not to compromise with the devil, to walk into his deceptions to fall into his evil traps and temptations, to believe that life is over for you; believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, it is not over yet; fear God, and keep his commandments, depart from evil, seek peace and pursue it. Jesus loves you! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(43) Ye have heard that it hath been said, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR, and hate thine enemy.
(44) But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
(45) That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
LOVE YOUR ENEMIES!
Brethren, in the above passage of scripture, Jesus ministered to the multitude on the perfect love of God the Father; saying not to hate our enemies, but rather love them; unfortunately, too many of us, find this positive reaction to negative behaviors of others very difficult to assimilate, for one reason or the other, we tend to hang on to past offenses of others, bring into subjection every day of our lives.
What we need to discern is, each and every soul wake up in the mornings by the grace of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, we see ourselves lay down to sleep, but no one knows for sure what happens to our souls throughout the night, until the mornings, when his spirit awaken our mortal bodies back to life; many people go to sleep at night, but never wake up again the next mornings: consequently, we live by the grace of Jesus Christ, if so, it is imperative that we extend his grace to others as well; love our enemies.
Case in point, what people might have said, or done to hurt our feelings; whether their negative behaviors were intentional to hurt our feelings or unintentionally done, as believers, count it all joy, it should not matter at all, "let go, let God, love still."; the blood of Jesus paid for all past, present, and future sins; he says, Love them still, bless them though they curse you, be kind, do good to them, though they may hate you, and when people use you for profitable reasons, but turn around and discredit, defame your names, characters, never pay them back evil for evil, but good for evil, serve them still with joyfulness of heart; for we do all things through Jesus Christ, not by our own might, for recognitions and applauses of men; therefore, let us pray for haters, that the Holy Spirit will transform their behaviors from evil works into good works.
The amazing grace is, God the Father, who sees all the affairs of human heart, and knows what we do to one another in this world, who we are in the spirits, yet, he does not select who enjoys his daily sustenance, at least not yet, until that fateful day when trumpets shall sound in heavenly places; he causes the sun to shine on the evil and good, sends the rain upon the just and unjust souls; his goodness and mercies endures forever; therefore, there is no reason to hate anyone in this world, rather love one another as God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever will believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life. cf. John 3:16. if so, let us not hate enemies, but love them with the love of God the Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, at times this question puzzles me, "why do believers who are called to transform the world with the gospel, shine as lights to bring souls out of darkness into the marvelous light of Jesus Christ, find the time to hate one another?" this should not be so! believers, let us lay aside our differences, come together as one body and work for the purification of our souls. Peace and love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

THE BODY OF CHRIST!
Brethren, it is important to recognize that the enemy's agenda is to destabilize the body of Christ, therefore, he blindfolds the truth of the gospel, infiltrates the hearts of believers with the lust of the flesh, to desire worldly things, fight against one another on issues that do not pertain to salvation and eternal life. the question is, what is going on?
Surprisingly, knowingly or unknowingly, many believers have fallen into his temptations, lies, and deceptions to cause enviousness, enmity, hatred, maliciousness, strife, divisions, sow discords among brethren; we point accusing fingers at one another, not knowing who the culprit is behind the scenes; brethren, the enemy is at work with believers; we wrestle not against the flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness of this world, spiritual wickedness in high places. cf. Ephesians 6:12; therefore, let us not warfare against one another, rather pray, fully discern that if we do the will of Jesus, we are up against the devices of the enemy every day; rise up! come together as soldiers of Christ, lay aside differences to disagree and agree with one another, steadfastly, unshakably, immovably join hands together with faith, spiritually align hearts with one common goal to possess our Christ given positions in this world, to minister the gospel entirely throughout the world with the help of the Holy Spirit, transform lives from darkness to the marvelous lights of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
We have the power and authority to overrule the lies and deception of the enemy that the body of Christ is contaminated with evil works, and powerless to achieve its goal on earth; the devil is a liar! let us focus on what matters, on daily basis, rebuke the lust of the flesh, that of the eyes and the pride of life, these attributes are gateways to temptations and downfalls of humanity; beware!
Dearly beloved, it does not matter what our interests maybe in this world, to achieve any type of a goal, one has to focus on what matters concerning the agenda; the body of Christ has a goal to achieve in this world, that requires strategic planning and efforts to accomplish; it is up to each and every one of us, to roll up our sleeves, come together around the table of reasoning with love, participate, never act unconcerned, for we are all important branches of the body, some apostles, prophets, teachers, deacons, choristers, ushers, miracles workers etc., therefore, let us reason among ourselves, know where we are, what we are doing, be on one page; this is not the time to point accusing fingers at one another, it is the time for strategic planning to fulfill prophecies; the time is running out, Jesus is coming back soon; therefore, let us work for the purification of our souls; he is counting on you and me to do good works, let us be encouraged to do our best for righteousness sake. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(14) If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part, he is evil spoken of, but on your part, he is glorified.
Brethren, it is easy to be partakers of the body of Christ but to follow him, do his will diligently, one has to be ready to suffer persecutions, reproaches, at times martyrdoms for righteousness sake; regardless of what happens, dead or living for righteousness sake; Jesus said, "never fear them which can kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." cf. Matthew 10:28; therefore, today, if there are saints among us, who are facing hardships for Christ's sake; let us be encouraged not to throw in the towel, give up on our faith, but know that you are not alone, pray fervently, persevere through the situation with self-control no matter how difficult things may be, perceive that Jesus is with you always to the end of days.
Case in point, if we carefully study the lives of the disciples of Jesus Christ, it is clearly recorded in the scriptures, ancient history how many disciples suffered and died for righteousness sake, for example, Apostle Stephen, follower of Jesus Christ, full of faith and power, did wonders and great miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit, at the end of his ministry, he was stoned to death by persecutors, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus receive my spirit. cf. Acts 7:59; today, can you and I do the same for the sake of the gospel? a point to ponder on; also, Apostle Paul wrote in his second letter to Timothy, saying, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecutions." cf. 2 Timothy 3:12; therefore, believer's suffering is nothing new under the sun; however, Jesus was crucified, resurrected from the death, overcame the world, believers are overcomers him as well; today, are we in any type of suffering for righteousness sake, it is time for Jesus to pick us up!
Dearly beloved, when we are in the will of Jesus Christ, but being persecuted for righteousness sakes, let us not fear for our lives, worry, have anxieties or be dismayed, rather be happy for the glory of God shines upon our souls, regardless of the states of our sufferings, let us praise him, be bold and brave, strengthen by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, stand firmly and finish the course in Jesus Mighty Name and receive crown of glories, be joint heirs with Jesus forever and ever more. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(4) He that saith, I know him, and keepeth, not his commandment, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
(5) But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
OH' WHAT A PERFECT LOVE!
Brethren, the first and foremost commandment is to love God the Father, with all our heart, soul and might. cf. Deut. 6:5; the second, is to love our neighbors as ourselves; therefore, love is the key to peace on earth; from morning till evening time, each and every soul turns the key of love to open a heart of others by a simple eye contact, an acknowledgment, a smile, handshakes, hugs, and kisses. from the foundation of the world till present times, the agape love of God the Father through Jesus Christ never changed or failed anyone, but his unfailing love continues to abound on earth forevermore; therefore, if we receive his love on daily basis, let us love one another as well as ourselves.
Love requires an extra act of kindness, that is, to show that we really care about others; at times, holding on to a door for someone walking up behind us, helping an elderly with bags of groceries to the car or changing a flat tire for someone on the highway etc.; it is our kind gestures, the little things that we do for others, that touches the heart of Jesus Christ, and whatever we do to others are not done in vain, but there are earthly and eternal rewards for everything done under the sun, whether good or bad gestures; if we do good unto others, we love God the Father through Jesus Christ, who because of love hang on the cross, died a brutal death to pay for all our past, present and future sins, resurrected on the third day, grant us victory, free grace, peace, and eternal lives: what an amazing love!
Dearly, beloved, love is a chain reaction; if we love one another, we love Jesus Christ, if we love Jesus, we love God the Father, and we become one gigantic circle of love; on the other hand, if any soul resent another, the chain of love it imperfect somewhere in the circle, I pray that none of us, will be an instrument of obstruction to the circle of love; we do not have to wait for the love of others before we reciprocate, love them as well; at times, we have to love those who despise us, that's perfectly alright!; for we love them for ourselves, and to obey the commandment of Jesus Christ; therefore, let us continue to exemplify the love of Christ to one another regardless of our differences, races or genders, shine as lights of love, in the world of darkness, be kind, tenderly hearted, affectionate, do good gestures to others, that the goodness and mercies of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, may continue to follow us all the days of our lives, and forevermore.

CHRIST THE ALL SUFFICIENT!
Brethren, while on this earth, let us entrust our lives into the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; when in sufferings, pray fervently, supplicate with songs of praises, call upon our Father through the Holy Name of Jesus for deliverances, victories, healings, favors, blessings etc., as we all know, the spirit of Jesus Christ dwells in all the things of creation, Therefore, regardless of what we do on daily basis, believers or unbelievers, some way or another, we interact with Jesus through the air we breathe, vegetations that produce food, livestock, fishes of the oceans, rivers, and wells of drinking waters, etc., Jesus is all and all!
Not that alone, but also, when Adam and Eve sold the birthright of humanity to Satan by believing his lies, disobeyed the commandments of God the Father, ate the tree of knowledge of good and evil, cf. Genesis 2:17, consequently, sin prevailed against grace of God, given to humanity to live abundance life, freely enjoy all things of creation; God the Father decided to reconciled the world unto himself through Jesus Christ the same word of creation; therefore, Jesus came back unto his own creation, but no one recognized him as the true source of light that lighted the souls of men, and in all things of creation, or received him as the son of God, regardless, he ministered the Kingdom words to multitudes, at the end of his ministration, he stood trails for sins he never committed, scrouged, condemned, crucified, went into the pits of hell, and possessed the stolen keys of hell and death from Satan cf. Rev. 1:18; he resurrected on the third day with victory over Satan, turn around, granted the same victory to humanity and free grace to come to the Father through him cf. John 14:6; that those who believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Most importantly, whenever enemies persecute our souls in realms of the spirit or we encounter physical, provokes of enemy forces; my brother, sister, all we have to do is call upon the name of Jesus, miraculously he shows up to deliver our souls from evil; calms the storms of our lives: do this resonate to how powerful the man called Jesus is? Think about it! The answer is up to you and me to decide if we will believe in him or not; I don't know about you brethren but am readily available for his grace.
Dearly beloved, let us give thanks to God, our Father, for his only begotten Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, for without Jesus, what will life be? this is a point to ponder on! Therefore, let us embrace the grace of Jesus Christ, come unto him with all our burdens, believe in him, have salvation, peace, joy, the hope of his second coming and life everlasting. There is nothing else in this world worthy besides the grace of God the Father offered through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Therefore, if anyone is waiting yet to accept him into their hearts, this is the time to come to him! Jesus is waiting for you! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 3:10-11
(10) And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
(11) He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
WHAT SHALL WE DO THEN?
Due to the fact that we live in a busy world, we are always in a rush to go somewhere; at times, we see our own family members as statues moving around in the house, there are no physical or emotional connections, everyone lives in their own bubble shells with gadgets friendships; in the mornings, we barely say hello to family members, occasionally, we remember to hug, kiss, show love, say hellos, goodbyes and see you later to love ones, before we head out into the world full of challenges; today, let us pay more attention to people than we normally would on daily basis, it is a small world, therefore, it pays to be friendly to people we come in contact with every day, for no one really knows tomorrow, we may need the help of the same people we have neglected in the past, failed to love and care for; also, the summer holidays are here, winter is gone for a season, let us slow down our busy schedules, spend some quality time with family and friends, especially those of us with younger kids; time and tides wait for no man; also, allow adequate time either in the mornings, afternoons or evenings, pay special attentions to loved ones, co-workers, friends, say hellos to neighbors across the streets, as we tread through the journeys of life, show that we care about them.
Dearly Beloved, the people asked Jesus a question, what shall we do then? Jesus said, (i) He that have two coats; let him impart to him that hath none; this answer sounds like closet cleaning time to me, if so, then, let's give away the extra clothing that we do not need, but still hanging in our closets, chances are someone needs them, for there is joy in giving than to receive cf. Acts 20:35; (ii) he said, and he that hath meat, let him do likewise: therefore, let us endeavor to share our delicacies, barbecues with others, especially, the hungry homeless people sitting on street corners, make them happy: the bottom line of this text is, to be generous, give out of love, share blessings with the needy; for this world is our temporary abode, everything we owe right now is for temporary enjoyments, sooner or later, those things will not matter anymore on the journey to eternity; on the contrary if we share our blessings with others, we find favors in the eyes of God, and there are multiple blessings for doing the will of Jesus Christ; therefore, let us ask ourselves every morning, what can I do for someone today? Jesus will tell you! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

BE COOL, CALM AND COLLECTED!
Brethren, as brothers and sisters of the same heavenly Father, let us do unto others as we would wish others to do unto us, what we have to realized is, whatever we do, negatively or positively to one another in this world will surely boomerang into our own lives, sooner or later, to cause same negative and/or positive effects; therefore, treat one another with love, kindness, and respect, do unto others, as ye would that men should do to you. cf. Luke 6:31:
Often times, when we get offended by other people mistreatments, we take matters into our own hands, try to pay them back, speak ill, either with slanderings, back-bitings, character defamings, etc, on the other hand, same characteristics are done to us, out of jealousy, hatred, envy, and for no apparent or tangible reasons, these types of utterances are not for believers but for demonic infiltration spirits; therefore, let us not allow them to control our mindsets, use our utterances to attack one another, if there are issues or concerns about how other people treated us, it is better to pray those concerns to God through Jesus Christ, never fight your battles, leave everything to God the Father; for he said, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay! cf. Romans 12:19.
As humans, at a certain point in our lives, we will get offended by others, when that happens, let us exercise patience, self-control, never negotiate a fight, yell, scream, jump up and down, and bark at our offenders; if you ask why not? I say, yes, we are offended, angry, but let go, let God, sin not; rather be cool, calm, and collected, the bigger person, though we may be right or wrong, handle issues with gentleness, meekness, resist temptation of the devil to misbehave unwisely in the eyes of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; Apostle Paul wrote, cf. Romans 12:18: saying, If it be, possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men; therefore, for peace to reign supreme on earth, it will take the effort of you and me; let's do something about it today, starting from our own hearts.
Dearly beloved, Jesus said, Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27; therefore, we already have all the peace we needed on this earth; if for some reasons, we are unpeaceful today, let us go back to the river of Peace, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, withdraw, replenish, refreshed our souls and spirits from his peaceful wells, relax in his peace forever and evermore. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) COLOSSIANS 3:1-4
(1) If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
(2) Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
(3) For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
(4) When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
SET AFFECTIONS RIGHT!
Brethren, though the LORD created all things of the world for our enjoyments, let us not get too carried away with worldly possessions, to points whereby we fail to focus on what really matters, which is salvation, free grace and eternal life with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
At times, we have to take the time to reflect on life,; take thought of how wide or deep we are into it; if needed, set priorities straight, life is too short, time flies away quickly, and we ask ourselves what happened to all the years that go by? for, the minute a soul enters the world, the journey of life to death begins, but let's ask us, few important questions, we know life begins at conception, but, (i) where do our journeys of life end? (ii) how? (iii) on what day? (iv) a time when life will come to an abrupt end on earth? no one really knows the answers to these questions, these are hidden secrets, but Jesus knows about the life of each and every soul walking on earth this day; what we can be assured of are, (a) if we live our lives per the will of Jesus Christ, and love our neighbors as ourselves; (b) focus on where we are supposed to go after life on earth; chances are, when we transition from this world, we will end up in eternity with Jesus Christ; if so, there are abundance of blessings, rewards, peaceful and joyful inheritances awaiting believers to enjoy in life everlasting.
Therefore, my brothers and sisters, let us not worry too much about worldly possessions that corrode and decay, blown away by the wind into the oblivion, to points whereby we lose focus on Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, have anxieties, uncertainties, debilitating mood swings, trouble our lives with hard labors, to keep up with other people's riches of this world, ponder on the things we ought to have, but don't have yet in this world; as a result, we wear down our physical bodies with hard labors, work tirelessly, emotionally distress our souls, die sooner than later, and leave the inheritances to other people to enjoy; life is too sweet to turn it into sour grapes; therefore, let us take time to enjoy life. leave the worries to Jesus!
Dearly beloved, let's focus on things that are eternal, our final abode, where you and I will be with Jesus Christ after we sleep in death; things of this earth will perish with the earth, we are on this earth to enjoy these things, not to be mentally depressed over them, it's not worth our years; one thing to know for sure is, if we seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, certainly, all our heart desires shall be added unto us. cf. Matthew 6:33; therefore, let us not worry about what life brings along our pathways, what will happen if we don't have enough money to pay bills, feed family appropriately, acquire beautiful things of this world etc.; rather, pray about concerns, leave them at the altar of grace, trust in the LORD, the great provider, watch Jesus Christ take control of all those needy situations, relax in him, freely enjoy life. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!
