(KJV.) I JOHN 5:3
(3) For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
Grace be unto you! The true nature of God is love; therefore, he loves the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. cf. John 3:16; pause; reiterate; God so loves the world, right? because of his love for the world, he gave his only begotten son; therefore, loving should not be done in words alone, rather an action should follow how we feel, the cause and effectiveness of love.
The love of God is not cheap but costly in his eyes, he exemplified his love by gestures, that the man should do likewise toward others; the creation of the world, its fullness thereof, he did all for the man to enjoy himself; thank you, Jesus! therefore, the love of God, that of Jesus Christ, his goodness and mercies never fails, he shines his sunlight on the evil and on the good, rains on the just and on the unjust. cf. Mathew 5:45; therefore, the love of God is for all, and he is good to all! Regardless of our experiences in the year 2017, it is almost over and done, Jesus is mindful of us, let's look forward to the year 2018 with smiling faces, things will be different, embrace it with love!
Beloved, for the love of God, and what Jesus did for you and me; it is imperative, to appreciate his agape love, acknowledge and obey his commandments, they are not grievous at all, but good for the man, Jesus summarized them into two segments, cf. Matthew 22:37-40; therefore, what Jesus requires of the man, is to love one another; if we do, there will be no more striving to hurt others, for what is mine, will be yours, and vice versa, peace will reign supreme in our hearts, the world will be a better place for the man to dwell forevermore; love one another as yourself! this is a commandment of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior! Embrace it! Have a Happy New Year! Peace and Love be unto you!

(KJV.) PROVERBS 23:31-33
(31) Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. (32) At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. (33) Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
PONDER ON IT!
Grace be unto you! Soon the whole world will jubilate, welcome the new year 2018; sensually, there is an emotional connection which bonds the man to the atmospherics, when the new year ushers into this world, there is a fire that enters the heart of men, suddenly, a breeze of purest, the cleanest, fresh air that comes with the year, a new beginnings with the feel of agape love of Jesus, that no one can fully comprehend, and we embrace others with love, wish them the best of everything in the new year; not sure about you, but I normally feel this greater love a minute before the new year arrives; you see! everything is based on love, Jesus breathes his agape love upon the world on the first day of the year, that you and I could love one another the same throughout the year: therefore, because Jesus loves me unconditionally, I extend agape love to you as well!
On every new year's eve, some people prefer to welcome it with praises in the house of God, while others choose to party; there is nothing wrong with either choices, it is what we believe, enjoy doing that we indulge ourselves; regardless of how we welcome the new year into our lives, let us not forget that Jesus is with us to walk us throughout the year, pay attention to him as well, know that he is our strength to lean on, a deliver throughout the year, we may need his help when in difficulties; therefore, let's not ignore his presence as we jubilate on and after the new year's eve; give thanks to Jesus.
Fruit of thoughts; let us be our brothers and sisters keepers: case in point, no matter how many counsels we receive about the new year's eve drunk driving. every year there are fatalities due to the fact that, the man had gotten behind the steering wheel, driven while intoxicated, under the influenced of drugs or alcoholic beverages; should this be so? Let's think deeply about it!
Beloved, strong alcohol is deceiving, while inside the glass, it stays calmly waiting to bite in the heart of its victim, let us not get deceived, there's no enjoyment in drunkenness, but constrains, discomforts, vexation of spirits and disgraceful attitudes; therefore, if we desire to drink alcohol on new year's eve, let's be cautious, don't drive under the influence of alcohol, whether little or much drink, think about the consequences that may arise from making a poor judgment, taking a wrong turn on the traffic lights; Let's think before we leap! Love one another, Have a Happy New Year! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ISAIAH 9:2
(2) The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
FLIP IT ON!
Grace be unto you! Jesus is with us, he is the light of world, Lord and Savior of all; therefore, when light is turned on, darkness surely disappears; darkness of this world, is associated with evil works of the enemy, such as ungodliness, waywardness, gloominess, sorrows, anguishes, pains, and sufferings; however, Jesus, the light of the world is with us, shining his light in and around us; we perceive his light illuminating throughout the universe, and upon the roadways of human lives, guiding uncertain souls out of darkness unto himself, the author and finisher of salvation, free grace and eternal life.
Therefore, if we believe in Jesus, we are free, no longer bounded with the chains of darkness, the burdens are gone from our shoulders, the yokes of bondage are broken off from our necks, and destroyed, because of the anointing oil of his light, cf. Isaiah 10:27; believers exemplify the light of Jesus, as well; therefore, let us shine, shine, shine, that wherever we are in this world, those who dwell in darkness may perceive light, and draw away from darkness to follow Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Fruit of thoughts; in few days, we will enter into a brand new year, therefore, let us take time to sober reflect our souls with prayers, praises, and giving thanks to the Lord; for his protections, victories, healings, goodness and mercies that never fails but are renewed every mornings and endures forever: we started the year with some souls that are longer with us in this world, we are not rejoicing over them, but if we are still among the living, let us appreciate the Lord, for he is good, all the time!
Beloved, we are the lights of the world, therefore, our lives are transparent to all; as the world see our glories, the enemy sees them as well; therefore, let us be on the alert, discerning what is going on around us, never take anything for granted in this world of darkness to walk into the traps set up by enemies, there is more to life than what the naked eyes perceive in this world; however, there is nothing greater than light, therefore, darkness cannot overshadow the light, shine, breaking forth into the darkness of this world, burning up the evil works; for Jesus is with us, we are more than conquerors! Continue ye in love! Have a Happy New Year! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) EPHESIANS 6:5
(5) Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
SAY 'YES' TO JESUS!
Grace be unto you! Few years ago, Jesus gave me the grace to tour heaven with him, as we tour along, he explained the way the system works, who does what, it is an amazing scenario, the protocol to perceived; I observed the angels on assignments, through and from inside the vicinities of heaven, and up and down the earth, after the graceful experience, I concluded that, at times, the connotation made by burial officiating officers, such as; "May his/her soul rest in peace."; is questionable to me because during the heavenly tour, though we tour the quarters of the holiness, went to the next heavens where I saw souls living as on earth, I did not see the idle souls, resting or sleeping, but up and about as living on earth; unfortunately for me, I did not perceived any spirit, just resting at all.
From my point of view, the whole system of heaven and earth is built up on serving, everyone is to serve someone, for smooth running, God, the Father created all things of the heavens and earth, and served the man with it, when the man messed up in disobedience, sin entered the world, God, again served the world with his only begotten son, Jesus, to be crucified, shed his blood to save the world of its iniquities; and still serving as an advocate, Lord and Savior to the man, whenever we call upon his holy name; the angels in heaven are on assignments all over the universe, working tirelessly for the smooth running of the heavens and earth; therefore, let us incorporate the spirit of serving others as well, though we may be serving the man on earth, through the man, we are serving Jesus, who rewards according to works, whether good or bad, there is a set aside time, to render every soul according to their deeds.
The point is, as we serve one another, let us serve with joyfulness of hearts, like we are serving Jesus standing before us, obeying those who overseer our works physically on earth, husbands and wives at home, managers and supervisors at the workplaces, the elders and pastors in the churches, principals and teachers in the learning establishments, etc.,; though Jesus was part of Godhead, yet he humble himself, through his suffering and death, was a servant of all, wash his disciples feet, cf. John 13:5-15; when he died and resurrected, before he ascended into the heavenliest, he commissioned his disciples to go into the world, and teach all nations, .. refer to Matthew 28:19-20; therefore, believers, let us serve Jesus, as we serve others, be obedient to the superiors at workplaces.
Beloved, there is a need for the man, to obey the earthly authorities; though we live on earth, heaven rules the earth through men, the earth belongs to Jesus, cf. Psalm 24:1; carnally, we work for men as ourselves, spiritually, we work for Jesus; if we obey our masters, inferentially, we obey the authority of heaven on earth; don't misunderstood me, supervisors can be tyrants, regardless, with prayers, Jesus softens their hearts towards the obedient servants; therefore, let us serve him with fear and trembling, joyfulness of hearts, knowing that he is our source of strength, and none of our works is in vain, but we will reap the fruit of our labors, if we faint not. cf. Galatians 6:9; therefore, whether we like our supervisors or not, let us discern that they are in positions of authorities for Jesus, for the smooth running of his establishments on earth, obey them as an obedience to Jesus: continue ye in love! and, Have a Safe and Happy New Year! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) JAMES 5:7
(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 receives the early and latter rain.
DON'T GIVE UP!
Grace be unto you! The world is without end. cf. Ephesians 3:21; therefore, it is for those who have the patience to wait upon the Lord! There is a difference between the wisdom and timings of Jesus, and that of the man, whenever a promise is given to us by Jesus; remember, it is him, who gave the promise, not ourselves, it is him alone that can fulfill his promise, at his appointed time; therefore, if we have a word from Jesus, but not yet seen the fulfillment, it is not too late, exercise patience, trusting, hoping and believing in his words, asserting that his will be done!
Patience is an important aspect of long life, and coupled with meekness, lowers the risk of high blood pressure, anxieties, fear of the unknown, and hopelessness; therefore, if there's anyone among us, who is waiting for the promise of Jesus Christ; I encouraged you not to give up the hope, but trust in him, pray, read his words, hoping and dwelling in the spirit, in other to discern the season of fulfillment, and to overcome temptations; while waiting, live a worry-free life with faith in his righteousness, cf. Matthew 6:25-34; Jesus is always faithful, gracefully, he gave up his life as a gift of love to pay for our past, present and future sins, there is free grace in him, he is with, in, and around us; let us in him!
Beloved, they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint. cf. Isaiah 40:31: therefore, let us not get frustrated while we wait upon the Lord, some issues of life are beyond human control; whenever the man uses his own carnality to solve the spirituality, things never turn out praiseful as with the Lord; therefore, let us not be weary to give up on his promises but trust him to bring all things together for good, at the appointed time: I don't know about you, but I am ready anytime for Jesus, are you? Let us love one another as ourselves! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 2:11
(11) For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
CHRIST IS BORN!
For example, (i) when we need to be strengthened in faith, refer to the book of Job which gives an account of the conversation between God and Satan regarding the righteousness of Job; (ii) when in persecution, one can study the life of King David, and King Saul the persecutor, I book of Samuel from chapter 18 through 30; (iii) when praying for deliverance, one can refer to the book of Exodus, how God used his mighty hand of power to deliver Israel from bondage; (iv) when sin overcame the world, for the love of God, he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life: cf. John 3:16; therefore, (a) Jesus Christ was born as spoken by prophet Isaiah in Bethlehem the city of David, and Prophet Micah, cf. 5:2; (b) he died and rose again to save the world of iniquities, grant salvation, free grace and everlasting life to his believers; Jesus, is the factor of freedom.
Beloved, every soul has a calling to fulfill; some of these callings, are easier to accomplish than others depending upon the assignments; in the case of Jesus, at the end of his ministry, paid a higher price for death on the cross, shed his blood for you and me to have freedom; therefore, let us appreciate his birth, death, and resurrection the important factors of salvation; without Jesus coming to the earth, you can imagine how many priesthoods and animal sacrifices performed for atonement of sins. Love one another! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(5) Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
GOODWILL TOWARDS MEN!
Grace be unto you! The man is, who he is, by his attributes; therefore, as lights of the world, let us shine the best attributes of the world to perceive who we are in the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, always portraying godliness with gentleness, humbleness, meekness, selflessness, patience, tolerances, persevering and forbearing all things; knowing that we are in this world as instruments of glories, to affect positive changes before the coming again of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Many times, the man had gotten carried away, out of control in merry-making, to a point whereby behaviors are questioned in a judgmental way; saying, "and he/she calls him/herself a believer!"; therefore, in this holidays season, the man should behave his or herself in godliness, avoid strong alcoholic beverages to intoxicate the liver and alter the sharp mindset into a confused state; if the man drinks alcohol, and tipsy, be considerate of other people lives, never get behind the steering wheel to drive anywhere, thinking to make it from point A to B, regardless how short the distance may be, it only takes a poor judgment to destroy lives.
On the contrary, let us be our brothers and sisters keepers; as hosts of parties, if we perceive a guest talking jestfully, in vexation, with abnormal behaviors; watch that person like a hawk, never allow him/her to drive away from the party in such a confused state of mind; this word goes to the bartenders as well, though sales and profit is the goal, be considerate of human lives, refuse to serve a drink to the man who is already intoxicated, no one knows for sure, what will happen once a drunkard gets behind a steering wheel to drive home: mindfully, never text while driving, if we need to, pull aside before texting, and watchout for traffic, avoid texting while trying to cross the street, my life and ours matters.
Beloved, let's put on our best behaviors this holidays season with Christlike mindsets, the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is at hand! The end times phenomenon is happening all over the world showing that prophecies of the end times are being fulfilled, therefore, it is important to be in good standing in the righteousness of Jesus Christ, no one knows the exact day, time of his coming; therefore, let us be prepared for him, love one another, do good in good pleasures, seek peace, goodwill towards men, justice for all, following Jesus, exemplifying his attributes: reaching out to touch someone with agape love! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) GALATIANS 5:10
(10) I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.
Grace be unto you! Believers, ye are the chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. cf. 1 Peter 2:9; if Jesus Christ handpicked you and me as shining lights within the world of darkness, we are valuable vessels, precious as gemstones, sentiments in his eyes of love; therefore, he keeps his eyes upon us, to protect our souls from evil, whenever we call upon him in destresses, his ears are opened wide to hear and answer our prayers; not that alone, but he being the judge of all the judges, condemns the enemies of believers, if they refuse to change their evil ways, to bulge from persecuting the righteous, he steps into the battle ring to fight against the enemies, takes vengeance and condemnation the perpetrators.
Therefore, if there is anyone among us, who is in any type of a battle with spirits; be encouraged to discern that the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open to their cry. cf. Psalm 34:15; do not fear, worry, have anxieties or be dismayed over the works of evil, rather be strengthened in Jesus, you are not alone, pray fervently, read and assert the words of victory over the circumstance, walk in the victory of Jesus; for example, before King David killed the Goliath, Gath of the Philistines, he looked at him boldly, said unto him; "Thou comest to me, with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield; but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.cf. I Samuel 17:45; prevailingly, the LORD fought for King David, he killed the Goliath, giant of the Philistines with a shot of a sling stone; therefore, beloved, no matter what may be battling with souls, demonic entities, satanic agents, alcoholism, photography, drug addictions, gamblings, shopaholics, anorexia, glutton, etc., there is help along the phone line, call somebody for steps of deliverance, you are not alone, but victorious in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savoir.
Beloved, in other, for Jesus to have good reasons to fight against our enemies, we are to walk in his righteousness, do his will; for, no one can harm us if we follow that which is good; therefore, let us be good, not paying attention to evil works, but praise and worship the Lord, resist the devil and he will flee away; if we are being persecuted for righteousness sake, let us be happy, never be afraid of their weapons of warfare, nor worry about our souls, discerning that at the end of our lives, we will inherit the kingdom of heaven, if we don't give up the faith; therefore, let us walk in vitory as kings and queens of righteousness, be loving towards others, rejoice exceedingly this holiday season, the coming of the Lord is at hand! Love one another! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(5) Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
GRACE, NOT PRIVILEGE!
Grace be unto you! Grace, the unmerited favor! (i) whether born or free, the man has favor with God by his goodness, and mercies that never fails, but are renewed every morning, and endures forever; the air we breathe, the sunshine and rainfalls, the rivers and waters to quench thirst, the vegetation of the field, livestock for meat, and the fishes of the ocean; God thought of the man, he created, provided the amenities to sustain human lives on earth, this is not a privilege, birthright but it is an unmerited favor of God, which noone deserves; therefore, the grace of God, has been in existence before the man was created in the garden of Eden to enjoy, whenever we consume any of these life-saving sustenances, let us remember to acknowledge the source, the creator, provider, give thanks to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior for the everlasting grace.:
(ii) there is a second grace, which is the free grace of Jesus Christ, with this grace, the man has to turn away from waywardness, with the heart of repentance, come and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, have the package deal, which is salvation, free grace, under the blood of Jesus, and eternal life; free grace is also a gift of God, received through faith, not earned by self-efforts, but through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, that noone deserves to work for it; given freely to those who dwell in the blood of Jesus; and though we were sinners, yet his resurrection awakened dead spirits to live in free grace, sins are washed away by the quickening of spirits, we became alive, one with him, and live in him forevermore.
Beloved, the conclusion of the matter is, the man lives by the grace of God every day; therefore, let us be appreciative of his love, acknowledge him as Lord and Savior, walk in his righteousness loving others as ourselves into everlasting life. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

Jesus was with God during creation; however, there was another third party involvement as well, and that was the spirit of the Father, Genesis 1:2; therefore, (i) the Father was the creator; (ii) his spirit moved upon the face of the waters; (iii) while he spoke the word, to manifest upon the earth his wisdom, thoughts, and creativity; therefore, the Holy Trinity exists, God the Father, his Son, Jesus, and the third party the Holy Spirit; without Jesus inside the life puzzle, how can we solve the ruby cube of anything in this world; therefore, let us know who he is, get closer to him than we are now, read his words, pray to God through his holy name, walk in his righteousness into everlasting life; thereon, reign with him forevermore; Jesus is reason for the season, get to know him!
Beloved, Jesus is love, tenderhearted, he experienced creation, because he was the instrument of creation; understands what is going on with the man upon the earth as well; therefore, let us feel free to express thoughts, concerns with him; he is our Redeemer, and will not allow his shed blood on Calvary to pay for our sins to be wasted in vains, but would prefer that all souls should to come unto him before it's too late to have salvation, free grace, and life everlasting; therefore he advocates our sins before the Father when we call upon him to intervene, with that in mind, let's have a meaningful relationship with him, endeavor to know him for ourselves; the fact is, he loves us as he loves himself; therefore, let us love others as ourselves.

(KJV.) II CORINTHIANS 3:17
(17) Now the Lord is that Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
LET MY PEOPLE GO!
The spirit of Jesus Christ inhabits everything, everywhere, he is all in all; therefore, whether we believe in him or not, he lives within hearts, in and around all habitations; many times, the man strives for itself, whereas, all we need is to acknowledge the true source of life, surrender lives unto him, allow him to take control, guide pathways in his righteousness, he knows which way the man ought to take, because he is everywhere, in him there is no darkness at all but greater light, no lackness, he is the source of all riches, wisdom, knowledge, and understandings, neither is there any sorrow nor condemnation in him, rather peace, joy, salvation, free grace, and eternal lives; therefore, let's be careful not fall into the traps of the enemy to voluntarily sell our souls into slavey, he who the son man has set free is free indeed, cf. John 8:36; therefore, the man is free because of the spirit of Jesus, and under his blood insurance coverage; today, are we in any type of bondage? Jesus is saying, I paid the costly, bloody price for all, we are free forever; therefore, let my people go!.
Beloved, there is liberty in Jesus, freedom from Satan's captivity, confinement, bondage, invisible strongholds through his sacred blood; therefore, it's heartbreaking to perceive what is happening to fellow brothers and sisters who for sufferings have fallen into captivity; as believers, what can we do about the situation? well; we can pray fervently for divine intervention, Jesus to step into the situation, take control of lives; let's do something than watching the incidence, if it's a Satanic end time virus, with mouth authorities, we can hinder it before it spreads abroad, we live in Jesus, there is freedom in Jesus; therefore, he is saying to, the slavemasters, to let my people go! Love one another, be concern about the welfare of others! Have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(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!
