(KJV.) ISAIAH 43:19
(19) Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
TRUST IN JESUS!
Grace be unto you! Isn't it interesting, how God works? We all at a certain point in our lives, have had an encounter with the Holy Spirit in unimaginable ways, which leaves our souls at the state of wondering, what is going on with our lives? If anyone is in a wondering state of mind, you are not alone! Let's be encouraged not to worry, have anxieties about nothing, but, turn unto Jesus, lean on him, allowing the Holy Spirit to finish doing his works, trusting in him!
God is full of surprises, he knows our frames, because he created us, the blueprints of our lives are with Jesus; therefore, he knows what is best for us: for example, when the children of God left Egypt into the wilderness, their journey to the promise land was supposed to take few days; however, (i) because they murmured against the LORD, they wandered in the wilderness forty years til from twenty years old upward carcases wasted in the wilderness; cf. Numbers 14:29; therefore, could our sufferings be related to our own handiworks? Jesus says don't worry about a thing, we are in the blood, there is no condemnation in him, keep the faith in his righteousness; trust in him, it is well!
Second point, the reason why they stayed in bondage for four hundred years is that the sin of the Amorites, their unforeseen enemies was not yet full, for God to have a reason to destroy them for a peaceful transition into the promise land. cf. Genesis 15:16; therefore, could our sufferings be, because Jesus is waiting for enemies to change evil minds towards us? could it be delay tactics, until enemies are consumed before we received blessings? Jesus says, don't worry the battle is not ours, but mine, I will recompense; therefore, there is always an unforeseen purpose of Jesus Christ, in a believers' sufferings, his ways are mysterious and incomprehensible, trust his ways!
Lastly, the suffering of Job had an intended purpose of God; the faith challenge, though Job knew nothing about his trails, God the Father and Satan the enemy, had a conversation at the throne of grace regarding his faith, trails were orchestrated by the devil, but God allowed to happen for his glorification. cf. Book of Job; therefore, could sufferings be related to faith in the righteousness of Jesus Christ? yes, it can be! therefore, if in any type of suffering today; think positively, Jesus is checking and smiling upon you, for your faithfulness, cast away the negative thoughts, feel good about yourself, no matter what, discern the will of Jesus that he knows about it, give him praises and adorations, victory is all done!
Beloved, the promises of Jesus, never fails; at times he shows up unexpectedly when all hope is exhausted to make a way where there is no way; he made a way for his beloved children through the Red Sea, cf. Exodus 14; rains manna for them to eat, cf.. Exodus 16; gave them water out of the rock to drink, cf. Exodus 17: therefore, Jesus takes care of his believers; with him, all things are possible; let's trust in him! Love one another! Have a Merry Christmas! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) I PETER 3:12
(12) FOR THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE OVER THE RIGHTEOUS, AND HIS EARS ARE OPEN UNTO THEIR PRAYERS: BUT THE FACE OF THE LORD IS AGAINST THEM THAT DO EVIL.
Grace be unto you! It is pleasurable with good gestures: therefore, let us be good to people of this world; whenever we go above and beyond to touch others with kindness, good gestures, in actual sense, we touch the heart of Jesus Christ; read, Matthew 25:42-46; therefore, let us not grow weary in well doing, continue to serve Jesus wholeheartedly, persevere, forbear all things, for, at the appointed times, we shall reap the fruit of our labors, if we don't give up. cf. Galatians 6:9.
The fact is, the eyes of Jesus, are over every move we make on earth, good or bad gestures, the angels are recording them; if we walk in his righteousness, his ears are always attentive to listen to what we have to say to him; whenever we show kindness to others, he reciprocates with more blessings, the rewards are much greater than what we give; when we share blessing with others, we do not lose anything, but gain abundance of blessings; for the hand that gives, receives; therefore, let's be good!
On the contrarily, those who indulge themselves in doing evil, hurting others; woe unto them, if they do not repent from evil works, and surrender themselves to Jesus, for salvation, grace and eternal lives, walk in his righteousness, rather continue to plan and execute evil works until the day of death, I believe, condemnation awaits for them at the throne of judgment, thereafter into eternal damnation: may Jesus rebuke it! Therefore, let us be careful, not join the multitude to indulge in evil works, exercise self control, with sober reflections, walk in the righteousness of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Beloved, both Heaven and Hell are real; the end times are upon us, horrific phenomenon are manifesting everywhere on earth, what are these evil circumstances saying to us? We need to be readily prepared for Jesus Christ, pray and live in righteousness, one day at a time, always count blessings, cast away worries, fears, anxieties, be concern about what will happen to our spirits when we sleep in death: fear the LORD, he is not a respecter of man, his face is against those who do evil works to recompense: therefore, it pays to be good! Love and care for one another! With greater Love, Have a Merry Christmas! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) I PETER 3:15
(15) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Grace be unto you! This time of the year, many souls are joyful, expecting the birth of Christ, on the other hand, it can be a season of discontentment to others; today, Let us search the heart of the man; discern! What do we see? Is the light within shining brighter than before? If not, let's lighten it up, we are lights of the world! Do we see sorrow instead of joy? Let's perk up, all is not lost, if there's life, there's hope! Is greediness overwhelming generosity? Be kind, tenderhearted towards one another, share and care for others! Is bitterness springing out of our hearts instead of sweetness? Forgive ourselves and others, purge away the filthiness, let go of offenses, allow peace the chance to reign supreme in our hearts.
The heart of the man is the habitation of Jesus Christ, nothing else can dwell together peacefully with him; therefore, the man need to sanctify the spirit of the Lord within our hearts, discerning to rebuke the desires of the flesh, temptations of the enemy of our souls; yield our hearts to the Holy Spirit, concentrated on the ways of the Lord, despite the facts that we have desires of the hearts, if Jesus lives in our hearts, he already know what we desire, as we seek his face on daily basis, walk in his righteousness, everything we desire on earth is ours. cf. Matthew 6:33. therefore, let our hearts be in tuned to Jesus Christ this Holiday Season, regardless, rejoice and be peaceful in him.
Beloved, let us be in spirit, the enemy is always at war; be strong in the word of God, to withstand temptations, this shopping season; let's watch our spending habits, the credit card usage, never overcharge anything, it might come back and hunt later; give generously but be wise at the same time, trust in Jesus to provide, walk humbly, reverencing the Lord as we treat fellow brothers and sisters as ourselves. Love and care for one another! Have a Merry Christmas! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 3:11
(11) I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire.
Grace be unto you! Baptism, we may know is a symbolic act of cleansing, purifying of the soul from sin and constituted as a member of the Church of Christ, baptism, is done by sprinkling or immersion with water; per dictionary definition: though baptism is not a necessary requirement to enter into eternity, to be a complete believer in Jesus, if we have not already been baptized, let us consider it!
John the Baptist came to preach the gospel of repentance, baptized and introduced Jesus as the Messiah. cf. Matthew 3; he prophesied to his followers, saying, "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance; therefore the baptism with water, is also a symbolic act of repentance through the blood of Jesus: when the man accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, iniquities are purged away through the blood of Jesus, salvation and eternity is guaranteed, but the deal is still open to be sealed off with the water baptism; let us consider it!
In correlation to the text, John said, "but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: John had not yet baptized Jesus Christ, but he discerned how powerful Jesus is; therefore, with meekness, honored him with his words, gave Jesus all the glory due to him before his ministry started on earth; today, what are our testimonies of Jesus Christ? Let us consider it!
Beloved, per John's, prophesy, Jesus was to baptize his followers, with Holy Ghost, and with fire: Jesus confirmed John's prophecy, cf. Acts 1:5; but did it happened? It sure did! the Holy Ghost descended upon his disciples like cloven tongues as of fire, they were filled with the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost, Acts 2:1-4; the prophecy of John regarding the baptism of Holy Ghost and with fire was fulfilled, today, if we have received a word of promise from the Holy Spirit, let us be encouraged to trust in Jesus, consider it done! Jesus is faithful to his words! Let's continue to love one another as Jesus loves us! Have a Merry Christmas! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ISAIAH 7:14
(14) Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Grace be unto you! From the past generations to present times, God, the Father, had performed, miracles, signs, and wonders within his creation; therefore, he requires believers when in doubt of him, what is going on in their lives, or want to discern his presence in any situation, to ask him for extraordinary miracles, signs, and wonders; stay on course, he will manifest his promises!
In a nutshell; the enemies of King Ahaz, the son of Uzziah, rose up against him, but the LORD was on his side, therefore, he said unto the King, "Ask me of any sign, either in the depth or in the height above.", but, the King replied, I will not ask neither will I tempt the LORD; then, Isaiah prophesied, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men; but, will ye weary my God also? "...... Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."; essentially, the LORD, spoke to the King, to ask of him a sign that he would deliver him from his enemies, but the King would not challenge his God, therefore, the LORD himself promised his people that he would send them a deliverer, whose name shall be called Immanuel: Immanuel in Hebrew means, "GOD with us."; therefore, in the Advent season, we look forward to receive the LORD into our midst; however, the LORD already came in a form of a person called Jesus Christ, crucified, shed his blood, buried in a tomb, resurrected from the graveyard, delivered his people from the bondage of iniquities, grant salvation, grace and eternal lives to those who would come and accept him as their Lord and Savior, the door is open, come!
Beloved, today, there are a couple of lessons to take from the above text, first of all, if we are the redeemed of the Lord, there is no "but or if's with him, he requires us not to doubt his promises, but believe that they will come to pass, it is the enemy who plants evil imaginations into hearts of the man, to doubt his ways, refute his deceptions, believe in Jesus; secondly, when the man is at a crossroad of life, seek the will of the LORD through prayers, the door is wide open at any time, to ask Jesus any question pertaining to petitions, discern his will for our lives; therefore, let us not make drastic decisions about dreams, visions, and prophecies, test the spirits, double check the messages to discern if what we received, aligned with the previous promises of the LORD, pray for guidance before we miss out on the true promises of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; there are never "but's or if's with Jesus, his promises are "Yeses and Amens." therefore, let us trust in him. Love one another as ourselves! Have a Very Merry Christmas! Peace and Love be to you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 16:24
(24) Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
READY FOR ACTION!
Grace be unto you! King Solomon, the preacher wrote; For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them. cf. Eccl. 9:12; therefore, the man has got to do, what the man has to do, never to put off what to do now, procrastinating for later, while the years roll away; think deeply, doesn't it seem like only a month ago when we jubilated, welcomed the year 2017 into our world?, it does isn't? it is for few more weeks and another new year 2018, will arrive, it is time to mirror ourselves, see what changes need to be done in the coming year.
Many believers, have heard the voice of Jesus, accepted their callings, yet sitting on the bench waiting for some miracles before doing the will of Jesus; today, the Holy Spirit is saying to you and me, it is time to rise up from the wondering state of dreams; deny worldly distractions, self-security; understand the reason behind the call, take on the challenge, rebuke infiltration spirits away, move forward, following Jesus Christ, leave the past behind, do not look back, don't worry about the future, Jesus will take good care of needs, you will be glad that you did the right thing!
Beloved, when it comes to major decision makings, the man must trust Jesus, if he said it, he is also obligated to fulfill his words; his promise to be with us, should be enough reasons to trust and obey him, do what he requires of us, without waverings or doubtful mindsets; today, let us be encouraged to clean house, closets, be ready before the beginning of the year 2018, to step into the assignment with Jesus Christ all the way to eternity; Jesus is waiting for you and me! I am ready for action, what about you? Happy Holidays! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 1:36
(36) And, behold, thy cousin Elizabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
GOD, IS GOD!
Grace be unto you! Whenever the Father wants to prove a point that he is the creator, owner of his creation and the fulness thereof, there is always a correlation between what he does; before, John the Baptist and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior were born, heaven orchestrated, kneaded together their lives in the spirits; (i) John baptized and introduced Jesus; (ii) Jesus is the door to salvation and eternity: (iii) Elizabeth, conceived John, and (iv) Mary conceived Jesus, the angel Gabriel annouced the birth of Jesus to Mary, he mentioned that Elizabeth was also pregnant with John; this is an implication that, there was a predetermined plan of God, which surfaced later on, between the two mothers, and the two soul as well; few years down the road of destiny, John the Baptist, baptized, introduced Jesus, fulfilled his destiny; Jesus laid down his life, crucified, shed his blood, resurrected, paid for our sins, fulfilled his destiny; today, the ball is in our court, let us focus on various assignments, take the necessary steps forward into fulfilling our destinies.
Fruit of thoughts; at times, when we pray for heart desires without any breakthroughs, the man tends to wonder what is going on?; how come God is not saying anything? however, to answer prayers are not within the jurisdiction of man but that of God; the fact is, God is a God of seasons and timings; when we pray, but do not receive answers to prayers promptly, the best thing, is to exercise patience, wait upon Jesus Christ; either, (i) he is still working on the petitions to bring upon the manifestations, or, (ii) the timing is not yet perfectly aligned with his will to answer the prayers; (iii) or the answer is "no!, wrong prayer."; in the case of Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist, I believe she prayed for years for the fruit of the womb, and was called barren among the women, until her old age, when she conceived John the Baptist; why did God wait for so long til she was old to answer her prayers? the fact remains the same, God is God, he is a faithful God, and there is nothing impossible about him!
Beloved, is there any barrenness in our lives? may it be spiritual or physical barrenness?; the fact is the same, God is faithful to his word; therefore, let us continue to pray, hope and trust in Jesus, our advocate to nourish, replenish the barren areas of our lives into fruitfulness, joy and peace everlasting; let us never use human imagination, to decipher the codes of Jesus, for our lives; let's wait upon him, while still waiting, continue ye in love, and in the bond of peace. Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 1:21
(21) And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
THE DESTINY OF JESUS!
Grace be unto you! Destiny revealed! I found the above text very powerful indeed; before Jesus Christ was born, Mary and Joseph his would-be parents were engaged to be a married couple, in the past eras, it was an abominable to have pre-marital sex between the unmarried couple; don't get me wrong, it is still an abominable action to take before the holy matrimonial ceremony; let us not refute it; however, what do you and I know? Mary revealed a message given by angel Gabriel to Joseph, that she was impregnated by the Holy Spirit; Joseph probably replied, are you kidding me? Mary, give some time to think about this! walked away, left Mary in perplexity; let's think of it, the same phenomenon can repeat itself in this generation; what would you and I do in such a dilemma?
The message was, (i) a son will be born to Mary and Joseph, by revelation, an uncontaminated seed of righteousness; therefore, Jesus DNA was not channeled into Mary's womb, processed like us: why? because, he was the word, within the mouth of the Almighty God, spoken to create all things of the heavens and the earth; cf. John 1:1-5; the spirit of God, overshadowed Mary, he sent out the word from within himself into her womb; the word became the embryo of Jesus: (ii) his name shall be called JESUS: per the dictionary definition, the meaning of Jesus is "the Lord is Salvation", the short form of Joshua, from the Hebrew name Jehoshua; therefore, let us pray about the names for babies, for it does reflect the image of the soul and matters to destinies. (iii) for he shall save his people from their sins: the destiny of Jesus revealed! therefore, Christmas should be celebrated not only because Jesus was born, but also because he was pre-destined to save his believers from their sins; therefore, if we believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we dwell in him, sins cannot prevail over our souls; let us rejoice in anticipation of his birth, that he is the Lord and Savior of the world, forever and evermore, he is the King of all Kings and the Lord of all Lords.
Beloved, now the conclusion of the whole matter of salvation; Jesus came to the world purposely to be crucified, shed his sacred blood, paid for our iniquities; he is the only door to salvation, and eternity; I can't think of any other person that was kind enough to sacrifice his life for you and me, and still cares about what happens to our spirits after we sleep in death, bidding us to come unto him; therefore, in this Christmas Season, let us know the reason behind the celebration, rejoice and praise the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior! Connet with loved ones, reach out and touch someone, with unity in the bond of peace! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. JOHN 9:4
(4) I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
WORK THE WORKS!
Grace be unto you! Let's work the works! Serve Jesus Christ with joyfulness of hearts; you see my friend! the entire system, from the creation of heaven and earth, past generations to present times; the factoring key within is service to one another; God the Father, created all things within six days, rested on the seventh day, called everything good; cf. Gen. chapter 1; thereafter, due to the disobedience of Adam and Eve; the man fell into iniquity, and the consequences led him to till the ground for food; cf. Gen. 3:23; since then, the man has worked hard to fend for himself; but thank God for Jesus Christ, salvation is here, free grace and eternity is available to all those who will accept him as their Lord and Savior, believe in him and walk in his righteousness.
The most interesting point is, God the Father himself, is a server, worked tirelessly to create the world, and the fulness thereof, and he is still working for you and me, for example, (i) how many times have the man called upon God, prayed, cried to him for one thing or the other, that he has to hear and answer petitions; (ii) the world rotates around the sun; therefore, there is always a certain part of the world which is awake, doing business, while in another part there is darkness; therefore, there are activities going on at all times, worships and prayers are rendered to God for answers around the globe; he never sleeps but attentive to our prayers; as we seek the attention of Jesus Christ in our world, there are souls in different areas also seeking his attention; though there are angels in heaven on an errants to attend to our needs, matter of fact, Jesus is always running around saving lives; at the time of his ministry on earth, the problem his enemies had with him was his doing the will of his father on the Sabbath days, cf. Matthew 12; however, that did not stop him from serving the man on Sabbath, any other day or time; therefore, if there is a need for us to serve others in this world, let's do his will, work the works, serve one another as he serves you and me.
Beloved, if heaven does not relax but working tirelessly for the man's welfare on earth; the man ought to do the same to mobilize the earthly system; for it is written in the book of Matthew 6:10; "... Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven."; if the heaven is serving us, the man has to serve one another as well; therefore, let's work for the purification of our souls, to receive the crown of glories, and be joint heirs with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore. Unite, be in one accord, love and care for one another! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

Therefore, let us keep the faith in Jesus, never give up the hope of eternal glory, with faith torchlights burning, lighten the world of darkness with tender loving, kindness, sharing and caring. keep the giving torchlights burning, shine upon both rich and poor likewise.
During this time of the year, believers prepare to welcome Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior into the world; starting from the shopping list; let us not forget to think of the homeless at the street corners, under the bridges, subway stations, and along our pathways; it is a godly gesture to do good unto all men, for it is more blessed to give than to receive. cf. Acts 20:35; therefore, as we have the opportunity to do so, let us be generous, do good to as many as we can; the hands that give, receive multiple blessings.
Beloved, as we give this holiday season, let us not forget the Levites, who are the Levites? they are the godly men and women who serve you and me, daily in the household of God, those who dedicated their lives to Jesus Christ; preaching the gospel, praying, and shepherding the flocks; let's take good care of them, appreciate what they do.

(KJV.) ST. JOHN 3:16
(16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Grace be unto you! Giving is loving, not showmanship! For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son; if we love one another, it is appropriate for you and me, to give our best to each other; we are in the season of giving, the question is, do we give the best gifts out of love or give anyhow for the sake of giving? a point to ponder on!
A few years ago, I worked for a merchandise store, very interesting, isn't? during this time of the year, many came in to buy gifts for loved ones, we rang and wrap up their purchases sent them away, but what do you know? a day after Christmas, some of the gifts were returned for cash, for some reasons, either the recipients don't really like their gifts or just didn't care; at the time, I did not fully understand what was going on with the recipients or the reasons behind the returns; but now, I understand! If they like the gifts, they would've kept them, instead of bringing them back to the store: therefore, as we shop for loved ones this holiday season, let's think about the selection of gifts, never spend quality time and money on unappreciative gifts; another option to think about is the gift cards, we can try that option the same ways as the tangible gifts.
A gift is a token of love, it should not be too expensive to points whereby we incurred exuberant debts that might take years to pay off; therefore, before we purchase a gift, ask us a question if someone gives me this type of a gift, would I appreciate it? if not, think about it before purchase, it just might not be appreciated, or return to the merchandise; let us give something meaningfully, cheerfully, purposefully, sentimentally. whether expensive or inexpensive, so long as it was given out of love, that is the reason behind the season; God, gave his best to humanity, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, let us love and give our best to one another. Peace and Love be unto you! Have a Happy Holidays! Amen and Amen!

(20) But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
FEAR NOT, BE IN SPIRIT!
Grace be unto you! The man is a spirit, has a soul, feelings, emotions, senses, lives in a mortal body; in the realms of the spirits, the man is more powerful, can swiftly, speedily move within the realms; when in the dreams and visions: at times, we can perceive ourselves, in many different places of the world, either walking, talking, doing one thing or the other, when in actual sense, in the physicalities, we are not capable to maneuver the earth as quickly as we are able to do within the same time frames when in the spirits; therefore, it is better to rely on the spiritual aspects, to settle the physicalitities, in all our endeavors, let us be in spirit, it is easier to overcame obstacles, temptations, set things up in proper perspectives.
Since the spirit of the man is powerful, capable of doing what cannot be done physically; we think through things with spiritual mindsets to take physicalities upon ourselves, thinking we don't need Jesus to help us do anything in this world; my friend, the fact is, without him, though we think we can do all things, we can not do a thing: cf. John 15:5; Jesus was with his disciples but departed to the mountains alone, the disciples went on a ship, it was getting dark, Jesus had not returned, the wind became boisterous, fear entered into their hearts, and they rowed harder and harder; fortunately, Jesus showed up walking on the sea towards them; they wondered, is this for real? yes, it was! therefore, today, if there is anyone among us with a troubled spirit; Jesus is right by your side, he never left you alone, believe in him that your troubles are gone with the wind, there is nothing to worry about, rejoice in his righteousness, believe in him that it is well!
Even though the disciples saw Jesus performed miracles, yet fear overcame them in the windy storm, and when they saw him walking on the sea towards them; pause! the thing is, all things are under the feet of Jesus Christ, including the windy storm; he assured them of his presence, rebuked the wind, also, the fear out of their hearts; as soon as he entered the ship, immediately, the ship landed on the shores of where they went, what a miracle! Jesus is full miracles, he is doing one for you and me right now without discerning, perceiving it; therefore, let's trust in him.
Beloved, if there is anyone among us, who is fearful of anything; fear not! Jesus is with you, be strong in his spirit, might, lean on him, pray, read his word, sing songs of praises, he is in perfect control of our lives: be careful of nothing, love one another! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

YES, AND AMEN!
Grace be unto you! Many times, to offer an apology for wrongful deeds towards others, or what others might have done wrongfully to us, can be a challenging gesture for the man; however, it is important that when offended one should take the initiative to bring matters out for discussion, no matter what happened, did not happen, the man should be the bigger person, to make peace with his or her fellow brethren, never hold grudges, malice, to resent one another, rather give peace a chance to reign supreme in the heart of men, regardless, exercise patience, and continue to love one another.
At times, when angry with offenders, the man should control attitudes and behaviors, speak not in vexation, swear hurtfully to the offenders, rather with peaceful and calmness heart, bring thoughts out to the open, when peaceful, the Holy Spirit will take control of what would be discussed, there will be understanding, unity among brethren, love and peace will continue to reign supreme in our lives; therefore, let us learn to control negative emotions, anger, and frustrations when upset with others; with peaceful attributes, love and embrace one another as believers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Beloved, the Holiday Season is here; let us take time to plan for the things that we need to bring into play before it is too late; never procrastinate for later what we can take care of now, avoid the hustlings and bustlings, pressures of getting things done the last minute, give ourselves adequate times to enjoy the festivities. Let the love of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, reign supremely in the man's heart towards one another throughout the Holiday Season! Avoid disharmony! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(18) To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
Grace be unto you! It is important that we live purposeful lives; first of all, the man has gifts and talents embedded within the innermost spirits before birth, to utilize for the kingdom purposes on earth, not to destroy, but to build up a replica of the heavens upon earth; whether the man is born or free, there is a field of specialty, uniqueness within to service the Lord, from carpentry, nursing, engineering, physician, pilot, masonry, plumber, apostles, pastors, and preachers, etc., these are all spiritual giftedness.
Secondly, after redemption of the man by the blood of Jesus Christ, sanctified, and empowered by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, he receives a duty or responsibility, given in an area of specialty to function within the body of Christ; therefore, the man is not saved to lay back, bury their gifts and talents, but are brought up as shinning examples in the body of Christ; today, if we are not yet utilizing our gifts to the glorification of Jesus, it is not too late to serve him; in the case of Saul, who when saved by Jesus, became Apostle Paul, was called as a minister of the gospel, a witness to testify of the revelations of Christ; (i) to enlighten the eyes of blindfolded souls with the gospel, turn them away from darkness to light; (ii) use the gospel to redeem souls from the power of Satan unto God; (iii) that the saved may receive forgiveness of sins, (iv) be partakers of the inheritance among the faithful believers of Jesus Christ; Apostle Paul had a lot on his plate, but he was faithful, successfully fulfilled his mission; therefore, let us be encouraged not to give up on our callings, no matter what, persevere, forbear all things, finish the assignments, Jesus is our strengths, lean on him!
Beloved, the call of Jesus is continuing, today if we hear his voice, let us come unto him, with all our labors, and heavy laden, receive rest for our souls. Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) PSALM 97:12
(12) Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
THANK YOU, JESUS!
Grace be unto you! Let us rejoice in the LORD! If we are redeemed from the grids of Satan and are under the supreme umbrella protection of Jesus; there is no other powers greater, mightier than his; therefore, we have the cause to rejoice always, count ourselves as the fortunes of this world, worry not about the cares of this world, but rather in all things, give thanks, glorify his holy name; for he is a good God, and his mercies endure forever; while we give thanks, let us not give up on loving one another as ourselves.
Remember, how Jesus sacrificed himself, to be beaten, crucified for you and me, rose up again from the dead, qualified all souls with his shed blood, to come unto him, receive salvation, grace, and eternal life? I guess we all do! King David wrote, What shall I render to the LORD for all his benefits towards me? cf. Psalm 116:12; there is no price to pay back for what Jesus did, doing, and will do for humanity; therefore, it is fair enough that we give thanks always, honor him with our lips, sing songs of praises, owe our hearts to him, have faith him, walk in his righteousness into life everlasting.
Beloved, giving thanks to the LORD should never be a set-aside festival done once a year around the Turkey dinner table; matter of fact, it should be a believer's daily routine in his righteousness; for the King wrote, "I will bless the LORD at all times, his praise shall continually be in my mouth." cf. Psalm 34:1; therefore, let's think deeply of his victories, healings, protections, goodness, and mercies that never fails, but endures forever. Give thanks! Love and Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) I THESSALONIANS 5:18
(18) In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
THANK YOU, LORD!
Grace be unto you! Thank you, LORD! To some people, this year is a wonderful, blissful year of testimonies; because Jesus is either doing miraculous things in their lives or has already poured graceful blessings upon them; therefore, there is a justful cause for these individuals to rise up, boldly glorify his Holy Name among others, testify about what he has done; on the other hand, to others, it is a challenging year, because of struggles to wither the storms of life; when in such a circumstance; at times it is difficult to genuinely glorify the name of the LORD among the people who are rejoicing for what the LORD has done for them, if gratidute is expressed at all, it is done with sadness, face and shoulder down attitudes, searched for the proper cannotations to praise the LORD.
Today, the Holy Spirit is encouraging the man to give thanks to the LORD; saying, "In everything give thanks, no matter what situations may be, to appreciate life, be grateful, count the blessings, see that it overweighs the predicaments, speak words of appreciation; for the eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open to their cry. cf. Psalm 34:15; and when praises go up to him, blessings must come down to us; it is our gratefulness, thankfulness, glorification, that will bring the blessings and favors of Jesus Christ upon our lives; therefore, in every situation, let us have faith in Jesus, trust him, be grateful, give thanks to the LORD! It is rightful in his eyes.
Beloved, regardless of any situation, positive or negative, it is the will of God in Christ Jesus that we give thanks; why give thanks to God for a negative situation? well! because there is always a sunshine behind a dark clouds, what one may view as troubled times, can fit perfectly to the will of Jesus Christ for our lives, no one knows for sure what type of a conversation went on between the enemy of our souls and God the Father concerning our faith in him; but know for sure that, no type of condition remains permanent, it is a storm, and this too shall pass away in due time, give thanks to the LORD always! Love one another, live peaceably with all men! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) I TIMOTHY 6:10
(10) For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
MAN VS MONEY!
Grace be unto you! Money? can't do without it! It is tangible, an asset, but liquidity; to survive in this world, the man should have a certain degree of money as a survival means of living, paying the bills, buying food, and acquiring riches; the Father also blesses his children with the riches of this world; matter of fact, Jesus at certain time of his ministry, when they arrived at Capernaum, the tax collectors asked Peter, if Jesus pays the tribune or not,.... Jesus asked Peter to go to the sea and cast a hook, take up the fish that first come up, opened up its mouth, there should be a piece of money to take and give to the tax collectors; read Matthew 17: 24-27; therefore, Jesus knows how important it is to have money to take care of business, it is not sinful to have money to enjoy, but never allow greediness to overshadow the glory of Jesus in our lives.
To have money to take care of expenses is a blessing; it is the perspectives of how we acquire and handle the money that becomes sinful to the man, in the eyes of Jesus Christ; for the love of money is the root of all evil; though we need the money to survive in this world, let us not allow money to be the major concern in this life; to the point whereby greediness will take control of our lives, lie to ourselves and others, step on big and little toes, cheat, steal, murder souls to acquire riches of this world; especially, when we crave for the money to acquire what other people have, lose sleep over what to do in other to keep up with the Jones, anxieties prevail against our souls.
To God be all the glory! A few years ago, Jesus gave me the grace to go on a tour with him to the pits of Hades; beloved, it is not an everlasting place that any souls should dwell, the atmosphere, the smell, the sorrows, screamings, and anguishes of the burning spirits, I am sorry to say, it was a pitiful experience that never evaporated from my spirits; it is only on this earth that the man has the chance to repent, have salvation and eternal life, once we die without accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the man might end up in the pits of Hades among the burning spirits: may the Lord forbid!.
Also, the burning spirits of unbelievers and some friends that I knew on the earth before were in the pits of Hades as well; one of the spirits called my name to come to his rescue from the fire; but, Jesus said to me, don't pay any attention to him, it is too late for him, Jesus and I continued with the tour; therefore, believers, once we refused to change our ways on earth, sleep in death; Jesus is not a respeter of spirits, grace is over for us; therefore, he bekons us to come unto him now, while still among the living under his grace; if we have not done so yet, let us not take things for granted, listen to his voice, come unto him, have salvation, free grace, and eternal lives. Hell is real!
Saints, though we use our strengths to do the will of Jesus on earth, the body of Christ belongs to him; it is the time of purging his body, the eyes of the angels are upon the affairs of the churches; everything going on in the privicies, secrecies of the congregations are open to Jesus Christ, the heavenlies are recording every scenerios around the clock; from the way we treat the people we shepherd, the money we generate in the name of Jesus, but not really for Jesus, disbursement of funds, the unaccountable monkey business, embezzling of funds from the churches, the eyes of Jesus is watching over the affairs of his body, saying to you and me; repent from evil works, to do good works! The times of accountability is at hand, judgment will start from the altar! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. MARK 9:50
(50) Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
Grace be unto you! As believers, lightening the world of darkness, it is a season to shine brightly; in an analogy, we are the salt to season the world as well; Jesus prepares believers to exemplify in him, do what he does; therefore the world expects us to behave ourselves in certain ways, be more loving and caring towards one another, embracing the souls from all walks of life, and living peaceably with everyone.
Salt is so good, that without its savouriness, any meat or food is tasteless; therefore, we all need salt for seasoning food; the question is if the salt is tasteless, can it be purposeful? no, it cannot! but to be thrown away; therefore, as lights of the world, let us replenish our lamps every day with fresh anointing oils, read the word and pray for self and others, that our lights should shine, affect positive changes within our neighborhoods, vicinities into the world of darkness; what we can not do to change the world physically, the Holy Spirit helps us accomplish through prayers.
It is Christlike, that we live selfless lives, consider others before ourselves, for instance, we are all at certain time, may be guilty of this attitude; when waiting in front of an elevator door, we remain attentive that when the door opens up, we will be the first to step into it; eventually, when the door opens up, we see ourselves strive with others to step inside first; whereas, we might calmly step aside for others to step in before us; in the past years, we heard the news, of how people strived into shopping malls on black friday, busted in, fought for deals, at times, this behavior turned very roughed, toughen to handle, end up deadly; should this be so? should we put our lives and lives of others in jeopardies just to save few dollars on merchandise? let us ponder on these things!
Beloved, isn't it respectful when we exemplify Christ among others, where there are strives and animosities? Sure is! the impact of our positive behavioral attitudes illuminates the hearts of the striving souls, calm down their negative attitudes because we refuse to engage in their strivings; therefore, this holiday shopping season, let us be Christlike, in all our ways, as tasteful, savoury, seasoning salt, season, lighten, affect positive changes in the world of darkness: ye are lights of the world; illuminate! Peace and Love 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.
CHECK AND BALANCES!
Grace be unto you! Oh, what a lustfully world! But the man has to deal with it; should we hide in bubbles to avoid distractions? not really! the temptations are visible to us at all times, therefore, what we need to do is, to be in spirit in other to exercise self-control, suppress the lustful desires; cf. I John 2:16 the moment we take our eyes off the giver, go above and beyond to acquire more than necessary, that is when sin prevails against a soul; for example, when the children of Israel were in the wilderness, led by Moses, the LORD rained manna to eat; the instruction was not to collect more than needed to have left overs, except on the day before Sabbath; yet some people disobeyed instructions, collected more than needed per day, until they found out the next morning that what they horded bred worms, stank before they followed the instructions; cf. Exodus 16:1-30; you see! anything in excess if not shared with others becomes a liability or a disadvantage.
For instance, the man needs to consume oil, sugar, salt, etc., as nutrients for them, if we are not careful to control appetites, apportion the right quantities to consume into our bodies, the same positive nutrients can generate health hazards for the man; anything at all hoarded in this world, can effect negative consequences to the hoarder: at certain time, Jesus said unto the publicans, "Exact no more than that which is appointed you." cf. Luke 3:13; it is nice to have all the riches of this world, but be Christ-centered, focusing on eternity; be motivated to share with others who are unfortunate to have more than what we have received from Jesus, never horde anything that will perish with the wind someday, if there's no need for it, give to others, be justified to receive more blessings.
Beloved, let us be more concern about how we view the things of this world, they are meant for enjoyment only, once we sleep in death, who knows what will happen to our hard-earned riches? the things that are forever are things of the spirits, therefore, appreciate and enjoy the blessings with higher expectations that someday, we will continue to enjoy ourselves in eternity with Christ; work the works, be content with the wages, never strive with others to chase after the empty air; King Solomon the Preacher wrote, Vanity of vanities, said the preacher, is all vanity. cf. Eccles. 1; therefore, seek first the kingdom of God, his righteousness, all other things shall be ours to keep. cf. Matthew 6:33. Peace and Love be with you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) 1 JOHN 4:11
(11) Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
Grace be unto you! God is love! He so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. cf. John 3:16; God, loved the man he created; therefore love is for keeps, if we love, cherish something, we keep, protect, and give our all to sustain it; that he gave his only begotten Son; God displayed his love by his actions, therefore, love is selfless, not selfish, if we love someone, we go above and beyond to display love by gestures to please that individual, whosoever believeth in him should not perish; there is always a cause and an effect, God did not just give his only begotten Son, but he gave, in other that the man who believes in him, should not perish in damnation but have everlasting life; therefore, the only way to show a genuine love is, to sacrifice ourselves to one another, care for the needs of others, uplift the downcasting souls with prayers and words of encouragements; we are in the love of God with Jesus Christ together; therefore, let us lean on one another's bosom of love, with tender loving kindness into everlasting life: trusting in Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of the world, he is the only way to Salvation, Grace, the Father and Eternal life.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, if God so loved us, let us also love one another, not in words alone, but show love, how much we care about others; the season of giving is upon us; let us remember to include the poor and needy, the homeless, widow/widowers on the shopping list, do something to surprise someone, besides love ones, put a smile on the face of a stranger, someone who is not expecting anything from us, be kind, show agape love towards one another, know for sure that, there are more blessings to come than the givings: Jesus is faithful to givers, be in unity, love and live peaceably with all men! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(5) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
WALK IN VICTORY!
Consequently, whether the man is asleep or awake, minds are bombarded with thoughts, visions, dreams, never a dull moment where the mind is free from thoughts or imaginations; therefore, let us cultivate the habits of filtering our thoughts, to cast away the evil; we have all at a certain point of our lives, made mistakes that could be avoided if we took the time to ponder on thoughts, seek the counsels of the holy spirit to make the right decisions: therefore, let us pray to cast down evil thoughts, imaginations, hinderances, obstacles, overcome and walk in the victory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Beloved, as believers, let us be attentive to the voice of the holy spirit, whenever a thought enters into our minds, filter the words through the holy spirit, ask few questions; for example, "if I follow through with these words, what will be the forthcoming consequences?" think about every action to take with the Christlike attitude; if a thought is evil, do not take action, rebuke away in the name of Jesus!

GOD IS SERVING THE MAN HE CREATED!
Grace be unto you! There is one mystery of the spirits, that the inquiry minds want to know, and that is, how come, whenever the man calls the name of Jesus for deliverance, whether the man is bond or free, saved or unsaved, Jesus shows up immediately to their rescue? Let us ponder on it!
From the foundation of the world, God has been serving the man till present times, the man really does not do anything for God than depend on him for themselves; initially, it was not the plan of God that the man should support themselvs, but to love, have a relationship with him, enjoy what he already provided for them to enjoy; God fix things in such a way that the earth was watered by a mist from the earth, he gave the man everything to enjoy on earth, without labor; after the fall of Adam and Eve, the man was cursed to till the ground for sustenance, cf. Genesis 3; that is when the man started to worry about survival, which led to greed, lust, envy, hatred, strives; despite all, the man still depends upon God for sustenance, till present times, the man still call upon God, for welfares; the fact is, God is the source of Providence for the man he created, with his goodness and mercies that never fails but endures forever, consequently, what does the man do for God's love?
Jesus came to the earth, saw what was going on with the man God created, after he suffered on behalf of the man, crucified, resurrected, and ascended into heaven, seated on the right hand of the Father, he reported back to the Father the deed of the earth and what was going on with the man; by revelation, the Father said to his son, Jesus, "I put you in charge of the affairs of both the heavens and the earth; you have experienced both realms"; Jesus took over the responsibilities to take care of the affairs of the man on earth, and the affairs of the holyfolds in heaven; though the man still calls on God, the Father for help, all petitions have to be chanelled through the name of Jesus, the advocate, Lord and Savior of man, by his blood grace; therefore, let us also serve one another in this world, exemplify ourselves in what Jesus is doing, be our brothers keepers.
Beloved, what is required of the man? the man has to reciprocate, serve one another, as Jesus serves the man, do likewise, share wisdom, knowledge, understandings with others; let's think of things in right perspectives, every soul is given a special talent, to affect positive changes in this world, whether a soul is learned or not, there is a gift within their innermost spirits to share with the world; therefore, there are no souls that are dumb or stupid in this world, every soul has their own gifts and specialities; when we sleep in death our ideas, gifts and talents perishes with the wind, however, before the throne of judgment, we will account for the gifts; therefore, let us work the works, share our thoughts, gifts and talents with others, it is worth our time on earth, and to receive the eternal blessings of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(15) And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
GUARD YOUR HEART!
Grace be unto you! The word, the word, is the root of all our undertakings, in the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. cf. John 1:1; the fact is nothing can be achieved in this world, without the word, Jesus Christ; he the word within our innermost spirits, speak the word, it shall stand! however, let us mind our words; words are powerful than we think of it to be, it will manifest.
There are two spiritual channels where words flow into our thought processes; the number one channel is, of the Holy Spirit; while the number two channel is, of the demonic infiltrations spirits; therefore, before we utter thoughts openly, let us think through our thoughts, to make sure that we are in tuned with the Holy Spirit, not with the infiltration spirits, to utter unwise connotations; if we replenish innermost spirits with the word, the holy spirit will reign supreme in our heart, there will be no room for evil thoughts of the infiltration spirits to infiltrate our hearts into temptations, for out of the hearts are the issues of life; therefore, let us guard against our hearts with the promises of Jesus Christ, his words.
Once our minds are in tune with the Holy Spirit, the river of peace from God will flow abundantly into our hearts, in all circumstances, we will remain calm, peaceful, in control of our emotions, state of minds, peace will reflect upon everything around us, we will be thankful to Jesus Christ for his love, strengths, and grace.
Beloved, peace, peace be still; be thankful, it is well! Let us unite in love, in the bound of peace, be concern about what is going on in this world, pray for peace, the welfare of the body of Christ, for one another, with the heartfelt of gratitudes. Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) EPHESIANS 6:11
(11) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Grace be unto you! Jesus is the light of the world, in him, there is no darkness, if we dwell in him, darkness cannot overshadow his light, we walk in his righteousness to live everlasting: knowingly or unknowingly, there are spiritual realms beyond this physical world; the realms of spirits, dwells the angelic beings and the demonic entities.
To envision the realms of spirits from our world, the kingdom of darkness is closer to the earth than the kingdom of heaven; consequently, the realms of darkness, the principalities, and powers in higher places is closer to the earth than the realms of light, with God the Father, his son Jesus Christ, the saints, the holy angels; unfortunately for the world, the demonic entities are closer to the humans, have the opportunity to devise evil, perceive, monitor the affairs of souls, setting up traps for failures, infiltrating minds with deceptions, trouble souls with fears and anxieties, alluring them to damnation: beware, never fear no evil, overcome evil with the scriptures, stand strong in the power of Jesus!
The question is, what can we do to protect ourselves? Let us put on the whole armour of God, in other to be able to withstand against the deceptions, craftiness of the enemy of our souls; every day of our lives, we are at the battlefront with infiltrations spirits, their goal is to take control of our mindsets, use us against ourselves and others; therefore, we need to be spiritually prepared for this battle at all times, knowing that no one goes to warfare with fancy clothes, we need to wear a helmet of salvation, guard our brains, mindsets from infiltration spirits, having on the breastplate of righteousness, discerning the truth of the gospel, from the lies of the enemy, walk in the word, eat the bread of life, drink from the wells of anointing powers of the Holy Spirit, take in the seeds of the good news of peace, when confronted by the enemy, rebuke him with the scriptures, same way Jesus did during his temptations by the devil in the wilderness, having the shield of faith to wither the storms of life when being tested by the enemy, the sword of spirit, which is the word of God, prayers, and supplications in the spirit, with perseverance, and praying for others as well. cf. Ephesians 6:11-18 for further studies: as armorbearers, let us bear the armor of Jesus Christ!
Beloved, whether we like it or not, we are in the perilous times; no one knows for sure what the enemy's plans are to trouble the world momentarily; therefore, let us live in the righteousness of Jesus Christ, equipped ourselves with his words, loving and caring for one another, knowing that we belong to him and not the enemy of our souls, with Jesus, there is nothing to fear in this world, no weapon formed against us shall prosper, we are more than conquerors of Jesus, stand strong in his might!

(24) But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
Grace be unto you! Jesus encourages his followers not be troubled rather believes in him, that there are mansions prepared for them in heavenly places, that he will come back again to bring them unto himself, cf. John 14:1-3; this is a true statement, being fulfilled momentarily for those who qualified to enter into the kingdom of heaven; souls who have had near-death experiences, been with Jesus in heavenly places do testify to this effect, that truly, there are mansions above prepared for the spirits of righteousness; therefore, believers may struggle through hardships, trials and tribulations in this world, their lives are not over yet, there is still hope of eternal glory in heavenly places: a believer in Jesus Christ is still a winner of any battle at the end of their days!
Most importantly, believers are encouraged to seek first the kingdom of God, his righteousness and all these things shall be added to them. cf. Matthew 6:33; this is the matter of preferences, the choices we make in this world that determines the outcome of our future inheritances; if we set our minds on the things above, do the will of Jesus, both earthly and heavenly blessings shall be ours; on the other hand, if we set our mindsets on the things of this world only, gain and enjoy the riches to fullest, someday when we get to heaven, we will miss out on the heavenly blessings and enjoyments from Jesus Christ; because we've already had it all on the earth, there is nothing new to excite our spirits.
Beloved, don't get me wrong, it is good to have the riches of this world, and to enjoy ourselves on earth; King Solomon was blessed with abundance of riches, but later on in his life, he wrote, it is all vanity and vexation of spirits; therefore, when we receive the blessings of Jesus Christ, let us utilize some of the blessings to the benefit of others as well, share with the poor and needy, love, care, show mercy, kindness to souls in wanting situations, that when we get to heaven someday, heavenly books of records will show that we lived our lives in his righteousness. Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

Grace be unto you! Harken to the shepherd's voice all ye the sheep of his pastures! Come unto the pathway of salvation, free grace, joy, the hope of the second coming of Jesus, and everlasting life.
As servants of the vineyard of glory, the season of the ingathering of souls is upon us; we have to endeavor to bring along the souls from other faith establishments, who are not Christ believers, under the body of Christ, the ministry of Jesus Christ, the shepherd of all shepherds, with one God, the Father of all fathers; how?, it looks difficult to perceive, but not hard at all to tackle, for it concerns Jesus, anything concerning him is not difficult at all, because it is already done; we are empowered by the Holy Spirit as instruments to successfully accomplish the task before us; let's ponder together!
First of all, the thought of how to accomplish the task seems unbearable, difficult to handle, yet it is not that difficult to tackle; why? because we are chosen vessels of the good news, within our hearts dwells the resurrection power of the holy spirit, he does the work, and not ourselves; what is required of you and I, is to yield our hearts to the Holy Spirit, allowing him to manifest his glory through us, accomplish his purposes throughout the world; we just need to obey his voice, do as he pleases, showing love and kindness to others.
Secondly, through the spirits, Jesus himself is reaching out to the souls, beckoning them to come unto him; the parts believers have to play is to lounge out into the darkness of this world, preach the gospel, the Holy Spirit will anoint the hearts to receive Christ; Jesus gave the ingathering to all believers to accomplish, with unity in the bond of peace, love, persevering, forbearing, it is done!
Saints, let us work for the purification of our souls; the task of the ingathering of all souls to Christ is upon you and me in this generation; what is the strategy to bring them in? Peace and Love be unto you! 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.
Grace be unto you! The Psalmist wrote, Serve the LORD with joy and gladness: come before his presence with singing. cf. Psalm 100:2; therefore, when we decide to serve Jesus, let us do so wholeheartedly, with joyfulness of the heart, without grumbling or complains; have the mindset of kingdom inheritance, know that whatever we do for Jesus, is never done in vain; the holy folds, are weighing our works, motives, be ye good works for Christ or self-aggrandizement; someday, we will reap the fruit of our labors, if we faint not.
Many times we profess the name of Jesus, hear his words; all that is taken into consideration as believers, however, what does Christ really requires from believers? He requires you and me to be doers of his words, and not hears alone; if we hear his words, take the seeds into our hearts, never nourish, allow it to grow into maturity, bear fruits, what good will that does to others, Jesus requires us to be doers of his words, his words are lively words, if we take in seeds of love, love one another, if mercies, be merciful towards others, if forgiveness, forgive offenders, and the list goes on, and on; let us do the will of Jesus Christ with rightful mindsets, knowing that it is about him, not about us, and it is worth our time on earth as sojourners!
Beloved, let us not go with the flow, do what we see others do in this world; as we serve the Lord, find out what he requires us to do, and do the right thing, never assume anything when it comes to spiritual matters, or cover-up the truthfulness of matters, mislead a soul to hurt or damnation, be true believers, walking in faith, in the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; that at the end of our lives, we may be counted worthy before the throne of judgment to inherit eternal lives; therefore, let thy will be done on earth, O LORD! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. JOHN 15:16
(16) Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
Grace be unto you! There is nothing a believer can do for Christ, without Christ; To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in us the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27; let us ponder on the following clause; "Christ in us the hope of glory."; therefore, it is Christ in us, that gives us the spiritual energies, faiths, and strengths, to persevere, forbear, live godly lives, bear fruits with his love, through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; he said, "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5; this is a true statement, therefore, let us dwell in Christ by reading, hearing and doing his words, that our fruits may remain in him, to show its vibrant colors for eyes to perceive our good works and give Jesus all the glory!
Christ is the vine, we are the branches of the vine, he choose us, we did not choose ourselves to focus on personal agendas, things of this world more than we pay attention to him, do his will, he commanded you and I, to bear fruits as the branches from him, the vine, with the gifts and talents allocated in our innermost spirits, spread the gospel to others, love, show mercy, care for people of this world, in other to have tangible evidence to show, account for our good works on the day of judgment, receive his eternal rewards; therefore, let us set our eyes on the things above and not on worldly vanities that corrode, tarnishes, vanishes with the winds.
Beloved, if we do the will of Jesus Christ, whatever we ask the Father in his name shall be done! There is nothing that can overshadow his glory upon our lives, when enemies rise up, he will fight battles, heal afflictions, protect lives, we are more than conquerors, family members will benefit from our faith in his righteousness, we are blessed of the Lord forever and evermore: Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
