(KJV.) GALATIANS 6:8
(8) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
LOVE AND BE GOOD!
Grace be unto you! one of the foundational principles of God is sowing and reaping, giving and receiving from the good or bad gestures; therefore let us refrain from the works of the flesh, to show or practice its attributes, before we make any type of move to sow any type of seed; let us double check with the Holy Spirit, ask ourselves few questions; Lord, is this your will? what will be the consequence of this type of a gesture before we sow the seeds?
Once we sow the seeds, they will eventually come around to bless or curse our souls; therefore, let us think deeper thoughts about our relationship with others; if we sow anything at all; sow to the things of the Spirit, bear the fruits of righteousness, which leads to eternal life; do good unto good pleasures, love unconditionally, care for one another, forgive offenders, forget offenses, be kind, tenderhearted, share blessings, and live peaceably with all men.
Saints, God, so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; why? that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but what? have everlasting life. cf. John 3:16; Hmmm! so, love is the key to unlock the favorable doors of Jesus Christ; if so, then, beloved, let us love one another, not love alone, but sow in righteousness, give generously to the poor and needy, that our fruits of righteousness may remain worthy until the judgment day of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Love and be Good! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 13:12-13
(12) And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
(13) And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
IT IS WELL!
Grace be to you! Jesus was teaching in the synagogues on the sabbath, and he saw a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, could not lift up herself; ... Hmmm! sad, isn't it? but it's true, she was in the bondage of Satan, but when Jesus saw her, he called out to her, and said to her, "Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.", laid his hands on her, and immediately she was made straight and glorified God; inferentially, there are situations in human lives, whereby a soul may be bonded, oppressed, distressed, unable to set themselves free.
Today, if there is anyone among us, bonded with any type of affliction, worries, and cares of life, under the bondage of debt, ailment, unemployment, physical, mental or emotional distress, etc., in the name of Jesus Christ, be loose from whatever the situation is, rise up and shine! who ever Jesus sets free is free indeed! give thanks and praise his holy name!
Beloved, some people are fortunate and not under any type of pressures, I thank Jesus for those people; if we are among the fortunate, let us not sit back, watch the suffering, but rise up and pull them out of bondage, reach out and touch someone's heart with goodwill, kindness, love and get connected; this is what Jesus will do! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 5:16
(16) Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
RISE UP FROM THE ASHES, SHINE AGAIN!
Grace be unto you! Jesus is the light of the world, as we dwell in him, our spirits are enlightened, as we transform into his likeness; whether we perceive this transformation processes happening to ourselves or not, it is a real process, which is happening to you and me at every second of our lives.
From conception to very day we enter into this world, the transformation processes begin, from the baby cribs, our physics begin to change from one likeness to another, our behavioral attitudes transform from that of babies crying out for help to toddlers who explore different things, preteens to teenagers, adolescent to adulthoods, mature adults, known as senior citizens; we continue to transform physically, mentally and emotionally through the processes, there is nothing like an age tipping point until we close our eyes to sleep in death; therefore, no matter what is going on in our lives, let us make the most out of life, live it to the fullest, the clock is ticking, count the blessings, be happy and appreciate life.
As transforming believers, (i) let our lights shine brightly before men; therefore, let us reflect the lights of Jesus Christ by exemplifying ourselves in him no matter where we are on earth, love and care for one another, encourage and inspire others with our gifts; (ii) that the world may see our good works; care for the poor and needy, feed the hungry souls, do goodwill, offer help to souls in devasting situations; (iii) and glorify our Father which is in heaven; surprisingly, whatever we do on this earth, good or bad, has an impact on who we are in Jesus Christ, for we dwell in him, our good works glorifies him, and he dwells in the Father, therefore, the Father is glorified in heaven by our good works on earth as well, and the angels record them in the heaven books of records.
Beloved, when we wake up alive each morning, after giving thanks to God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; ask ourselves, what can we do to glorify Jesus Christ today, that the Father in heaven may also be glorified? Let us shine as lights of the world! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST JOHN 21:15
(15) So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
I LOVE YOU LORD!
Grace be unto you! the word Love is a verb which requires an action, whenever we express love to anyone, whether in person, on the phones, through text messages or handwritten expressions; if our love connotations are spiritual, truthful, and not just flattering words; there should be some sort of a feeling, emotional connection impacted upon the giver of love and the receiver's heart, at times, the impact of love lingers on the heart for few minutes, throughout the day, weeks, months and years.
Therefore, when we express love, let us bear the fruit of love as well; to express love without fruit-bearing, love becomes just an ordinary expression without the impact of sensitivity, emotions, but emptiness; case in point, after Jesus resurrected from the dead, he appeared to his disciples on three occasions; on his third appearance; Simon Peter was on a fishing expedition with some of the disciples; but throughout Jesus ministration, he prepared the disciple to take over the ministry to go into the world, spread the Kingdom words to all nations. cf. Matthew 28:19-20; when Jesus was no longer with them, guess what? Simon Peter desired to go back to his old profession as a fisherman, instead of spreading the gospel into the world; instructions were given to the disciples by Jesus Christ, the action was required from his disciples; as believers, what instructions have we received from Jesus Christ, but yet to obey? this is a point to ponder on!
A couple of points to take away, (i) as believers, let us always listen attentively to what the spirit is saying to us, not to yield to deceptions of the enemy, be careful not backslide into our old ways, for there are loopholes of enemy temptations everywhere in darkness of this world; (ii) if we are called into the vineyard of glory; let us focus on what really matters to Jesus, pay attention to his instructions, and do his will: in Simon Peter's case, Jesus showed up, after they dined with him, he asked Peter if he really loved him, which he answered, Yea, Lord!; Jesus said to him, "Feed my lambs!". therefore, love requires an action; Peter loved Jesus but was not ready to do his will at that time; but, Jesus reminded Peter to show his love for him, by doing his will, feed the lambs, sheep, spread the gospel, instead of being on the boat fishing out for fishes.
Saints, let us, love one another; love is of God, and Jesus Christ, show love, not in words alone, but mean what we express with heartfelt impacts upon the hearts of souls; also, love is a chain reaction coming from above; therefore, let's get connected to the rivers of love flowing from the Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, now, today and even forevermore! I love you! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) PHILIPPIANS 3:2
(2) Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
POINTS TO PONDER ON!
Grace be unto you! the above passage sounds funny; isn't? but truly, one needs to be careful in this world, there are wolves in sheep clothing everywhere in our world, no one can fully discern a book by its cover unless we actually read it contents; apparently, we cannot just trust anyone, for the fact, that people have different motives, as to why they approach and acquaint themselves to certain individuals, for example, who can tell a rapist by looking at one? not sure! but rapists are categorized as dogs, with morally impure mindsets, always looking to satisfy their fleshly desires; regardless of who or how they capture their preys; let us ponder on it!
Secondly, beware of evil workers; tell me about evil workers? these are the souls with wicked attributes, such with, condoning, conniving spirits, lies, and deceptions, indirectly finding faults with others, spreading gossips and rumour mongering, always thinking evil thoughts to instigate against others; biblically, they are the people who insist that certain religious doctrines, practices are necessary for salvation; which negates the fact that salvation comes by believing in Jesus Christ alone; let us ponder on it!
Lastly, beware of the concision; the concision? yes! people who copy others blindly, without the knowledge, understanding of what they do, brief to draw the conclusion to issues, always cutting corners; for instance, people who do not understand the circumcision of the Old Testament, but, always practice the cutting of the foreskin of males: circumcision or no circumcision, Christ is all sufficient; let us ponder on it!
Beloved, the foundational principle is, to love God, keep his commandments, love our neighbor as ourselves, and do goodwill; with prayers, supplications, and thanksgivings; leave all the cares of life upon the shoulders of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, be free from worries, anxieties, trust in Jesus; let us ponder on it! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) I CORINTHIANS 4:2
(2) Moreover, it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
BE FAITHFUL STILL!
Grace be to you! believers' are stewards in the body of Christ; first of all, who is a steward? A steward is a person who manages another's property or financial affairs; administers anything as the agent of another or others. per dictionary definition: do this resonate with you and me? I think so! every soul on earth has a god-given talent planted within the innermost spirits, DNA's before birth; these gifts were not given to souls just to lay dormant within our spirits, they were given to manifest from within our spirits, utilize as talents, expertises, support one another for the smooth running of the establishment of Jesus Christ on earth; therefore, if we are stewards and stewardesses entrusted with certain responsibilities to perform on earth, never cover up talents, but share with others, be faithful, manage the affairs of Jesus Christ, build up the eternal kingdom on earth wisely, thoroughly, truthfully; for further study, read Matthew 25:14-30: Jesus gave souls talents to be shared in this world; when we sleep in death, our talents perish with the wind; but guess what? we account for our works; if we cover up our gifts, unwillingly to share with others what we know, then, what is there to account for before the throne of Judgment? this is a point to ponder on!

(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 5:22
(22) But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
Grace be unto you! among all the body parts created by God, the tongue is the most dangerous part of the human body; it is like a fire, sharp as a sword, full of iniquities, which can cut through the bones, spirits, and wound the hearts of men; therefore, it is imperative to bridle our tongues, under any circumstance, watch what comes out of our mouths, our connotations, what we say to defile souls.
This world is full of infiltration spirits, working against souls momentarily, regardless of how slim the influence may be, these demonic entities will take chances to ensnare a soul into evil works; whenever we find ourselves getting angry at others, with no apparent, tangible reasons, we have fallen into a snare of the enemy, it is time to free ourselves; how? read the scriptures, pray, sing songs of praises, give thanks to Jesus our Conqueror to save; for infiltration spirits are at work to tarnish godly manners, integrities, derail believers from the righteousness of Christ; when in such a state of emotions, carefully choose our vocabularies, watch what we say to people, our actions, and behaviors are under godly scrutinies.
Beloved, King Solomon wrote; Death and Life are in the power of the tongue:... .cf. Prov. 18:21; therefore the tongue is a ruler, which empower the mouth to speak good or evil connotation; let us be careful of what we say to categorise people, whatever we speak into the atmospherics to manifest; no matter how stressful a situation may be, never use negative words against others, call anyone a fool, stupid or nonsensical; remember, we were made in the image of God, Jesus Christ is our joint heir, whenever we use negative words against any soul, directly or indirectly we insult our creator, if not careful, it may not be well with us on the judgement day. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ISAIAH 26:20
(20) Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
Grace be unto you, though we perceive evil works of men rising up rapidly, prevailing against our world, there is a spiritual whirlwind of indignation approaching as well; whether this whirlwind is of God or Satan, am not sure, but it's coming our way: as I hear the spirit of the Lord said to me, "Get inside your habitation, I questioned the Lord, why? what is it, Lord? he said cautiously to me, look behind you!" I turned myself around, saw a black looking whirlwind or tornado approaching, sweeping the streets, overturning buildings, people run helter-skelter everywhere, the turmoil was devastating to perceive, as the whirlwind approached rapidly behind me; I quickly went inside the habitation of the Lord for shelter; this dream is bothering me still, though it was revealed to me a few days: therefore, join me to petition Jesus Christ, to have mercy on us, rebuke the whirlwind away from this earth.
As Saints, workers in the vineyard of glory, the Almighty God is our habitation; cf. Psalm 91, no evil works of the enemy can prevail, overshadow the glory of Jesus Christ resting upon our lives; however, as soldiers of Christ, we have duties to perform on behalf of the people, it is our duties to pray for our nations, the governing establishments, to make thoughtful decisions on behalf of the people, in every decision makings, consider human lives first, lives matters to Jesus Christ, he died on the cross to save souls from eternal damnation, consider it; let peace reign on earth: whether this revelation is of Satan or of God, we have all sinned, let us intercede beyond the four walls of our families, churches, pray for the peace of this world, while we abide under the shadow of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, be safe forevermore. Peace be unto you! 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!

(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!

(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!

(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!

(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?

(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!

(KJV.) JAMES 5:7-9
(7) Be Patient, therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
(8) Be ye also patient: stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
(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. Ready! Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ACTS 9:4-5
(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!

(12) Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you.
(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. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(45) A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good, and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaketh.
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. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!

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!
