(KJV.) I CORINTHIANS 14:15
(15) What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
Before Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, he advised his disciples not to depart from Jerusalem but wait for the promise of the Father, which is the Holy Ghost, cf. Acts 1:1-2; out of obedience to his instructions, on the day of Pentecost, the promise was fulfilled, Acts 2, for detailed information of how the Holy Ghost manifested his powers through the disciples; from that point forward, the Holy Ghost never departed from believers, using them to manifest his glories, good works among the congregations of God; for wherever two or three people are gathered together in the name of God, and of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the Holy Ghost is among them as well, cf. Matthew 18:20; many times, the Holy Spirit descended upon believers in the form of an anointing oils, very peaceful in nature, yet, with a rushing mighty piercing wind, that whenever it descends upon the believers, his presence cannot be hidden from others but manifested, proclaimed in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, whenever we feel his presence within and around us, never quench him away, cf. I Thess. 5:19; there is a reason for his manifestations, it all for our own welfares.
The lesson today is about speaking in tongues; one of the greater gifts of the Holy Spirit, referring to the subject, most believers speak in tongues for various reasons; some to communicate their thoughts processes to the Father, others speak in tongues to invite his oil of anointing upon them for various reasons, either to strengthen them in the midst of warfares, to do his works, or as he gave them the utterances for the upliftment of his congregations and for other believers; praying in tongues has been a controversial subject among believers, as to when, where, how it should manifest through the midst of the congregations of Jesus; regardless, speaking in tongues is a spiritual phenomenon for personal experiences, it is not beneficial for believers alone but also for his congregations as well, but depending upon interpretations; consequently, when the disciples spoke in tongues on the faithful day of Pentecost, they spoke not as mad men alone as assumed by witnesses but also performed miracles on the people; therefore, speaking in tongues is not a personal thing alone, but it is also a spiritual gift for the welfare of others; therefore, regardless of our perceptions, speaking in tongues was given not only for ourselves, but also to be utilized for his works depending upon the scenarios of his will; read about it in the book of Acts chapter 2:1-47, for detailed information about the prophecy and tongues; the point is, whenever we speak in tongues on behalf of the churches or others, let us also interpret what we speak for the benefit of the congregation, for seldom does anyone understands angelic utterances.
Beloved, let us feel free to speak in tongues whenever prompted by the Holy Spirit, it is a spiritual gift that cannot be purchased with robbery or bribery, but by grace, it is free of charge and helpful for believers and for the works of Jesus Christ; if there is anyone among us who does not utilize this gift yet, today, ask Jesus Christ to help you to resurrect it from within your innermost spirit; if you have the Holy Spirit, you also have the resurrection power to speak in tongues; I inspire you with courage to pray for his power of manifestation, it is beneficial for you and for people around you; try it, you will love it! Continue ye in Love! Jesus is coming back again soon! I thank you, for your time! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) PROVERBS 3:27
(27) Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
EXAMPLES TO EXEMPLIFY!
Each and every moment of our lives are worth a living in doing good to others, whether lovers or haters the same, Christian attitudes should prevail over divisions, hatreds, resentments, strives, etc.; let us look for something beneficial to do for others, from dawn to dusk, find ways to impact a life, leave a loving mark of kindness, compassion, and empathize towards the suffering; one of the greater attributes of Jesus Christ, is his love for souls, regardless of worldly classifications or believes, Jesus is not prejudiced, will not discriminate against anyone, as a matter of fact, when he looks down to the earth from the heavens, he does not perceive our skin colors, but perceives our inner man, hearts, the spiritual beings of who we are in this world; therefore, he will go above and beyond his supremacy, what the world would judge as rightful or wrongful to save a life upon the earth; at a time, though according to the law of Moses, the Sabbath day should be observed in holiness, read Exodus 20:8; it was an abomination for any Jew to work, Jesus, due to his love, and humanitarian reasons, violated the law of the Sabbath on several occasions, healed the sick when he was not supposed to, cf. Matthew 10:12, did what he had to do to help others who are in sufferings; therefore, as believers called to Jesus, let us follow his footsteps, the ways in which he related to the souls he interacted with while on the earth; if we are in a position to help a soul who is in any type of suffering that we are aware of, let us live by the example of how Jesus lived on the earth, what he did for the suffering, asked us to do for one another, do likewise; there are blessings in givings than receiving, read the following scriptural references on givings, Luke 6:38; Matthew 5:42; Mark 9:41; book of Acts, 20:35, etc., be merciful towards one another; never say to the suffering, go and come back tomorrow, I will give it to you when you can save a life, tomorrow might be too late for that person; therefore, let us endeavor to do what Jesus will do!
Beloved, on a Sabbath day, Jesus and his disciples went through a cornfield, the disciples were hungered and began to pluck the ears of corn to eat, but when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Jesus, look at your disciples doing what is unlawful to do on the Sabbath day, cf. Matthew 12:1-2; think deeply, what was the reason why the disciples violated the law? it was because they were starved and needed food to save their hungered souls; therefore, there are times when one have to react against all odds to place other people needs before theirs, be tenderhearted towards the sufferings, for, it is a rightful gesture for the righteous, do what Jesus will do! Continue to love one another as yourselves! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Thank you for your time! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 16:17
(17) And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
Grace be unto you! The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the word of our God shall stand forever. cf. Isaiah 40:8; as believers, we live by faith in the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, though we are on the earth, our lives, day to day walk of faith are monitored by the angels from above, depending upon our callings, relationship with Jesus, daily devotions to God, services to others, heaven is involved with our earthly affairs, as a reminder, whenever we recite the Lord's prayer, we verbally invite heaven into our earthly affairs, whatever we ask for, there are assigned angels to each and every one of us, ready to run the errands with our petitions to Jesus Christ, and to bring back the answers.
From the past generations to present times, the scriptures, word of God, have been in existence to teach, guide the man how to live his life truthfully, gracefully, and peacefully with his neighbors, not only that but also to use its reading contents as his shining light within the world of darkness; therefore, God, the Father, does not lie nor take his words lightly, like the man would, cf. Numbers 23:19; whenever he speaks, believe it or not; it is done, he watches over his words to perform, for the power of his strength, resides in his words; remember everything that he created, came from within his spirits, the angels are spirits, cf. Hebrew 1:7, except the man, who he formed out of the dust of the ground like unto himself, cf. Genesis 2:7; therefore, whenever he speaks his words, it is his nature to honor his words above his name; if he gives his words, it is done!
Let's analyze the above text; And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass; yes, it is, why? how? you see! the heaven and earth were created by God, by his words, it did not cost him anything to bring into existence, only by his words; if the heaven and earth pass, or be destroyed entirely by him; guess what? so long as God, the Father is on his throne, by his word, like he created them before, he would do it again; case in point, during the time of Noah, he destroyed all things of the earth with water, yet he brought them back again, therefore, there is no doubt about it, the word is the root of things of creation; regarding the last segment of the text, "than one title of the law to fail."; the law in this text refers to his recorded words in the scriptures, not necessarily the rules and regulations given through Moses, but also included with, are his words of statutes, counsels, hopes, reproves, encouragements, and ministrations of the psalms; therefore, he watches over them to fulfill his prophecies, covenants, promises, purposes on earth, in our lives; have anyone among us, wondered why whenever they pray his words back to him, they receive his immediate attention? the answer is very simple, God, the Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, honors his words above his name; he also sent his word to heal and deliver us from destructions. cf. Psalm 107:20: therefore, believe his words, ponders over them!
Beloved, the word of God is powerful, his words are established at the very moment he speaks them into existence, nothing can alter or cast away; by his word, Jesus Christ, the man received redemption from iniquities, healing, victories, deliverance, goodness, and mercies; therefore, let his words never depart from our lives, eat it every day as a daily bread, Matthew 6:11, food for our souls, drink of his living waters, John 7:38; live it, refer to, read the epistle of Apostle Paul letter to the Colossians chapter 3; believe, assimilate his words, ponder over, act upon it. Continue ye in Love! Jesus is coming back again soon! Thank you for reading! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen

(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 26:54
(54) But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
IT IS WRITTEN, SO IT MUST BE!
Case in point, before a spirit, enters into the womb, the metamorphosis to birthing process, that spirit's lifetime longevity, mission on the earth has been designed in heaven by Jesus, to suit his or her purpose on the earth, recorded in heavenly books of records, incidences calculated by the assigned angels, and approved by God, our maker, also, the information regarding which part of the earth yet to be born, continent, country, household, parental control, assignment, the date of death? etc., this valuable information is within the innermost spirit before entering into the womb, taking a journey through the birth carnal onto the earth; the mysterious aspect of this process is, the moment the spirit enters into the fleshly womb, preparing to go through the birth canal into the world, the detailed information about his or her sojourn is sealed within the spirits yet to manifest as the hidden events of life unfolds; therefore, it is necessary that we teach our children the ways of Christ from the initial stages of life, it is the right way to be hooked up to the intended purposes of life; in the event that a spirit misses the mark, for instance, they may be marked as a preacher in heaven, on earth, their parents decided to educate them in the field of engineering, guess what, heaven will adjust the original records to suit the profession of that spirit, no harm was done, but they may have to study, work harder to attain potential in that field, because they altered the divine wisdom to preach for engineering; at times, they may be successful in their profession but may experience spiritual discontentment thoughout their lifetime, not knowing why wealth and riches cannot satisfy their spirits; therefore, it is necessary that what is written down for our lives in the heaven books of records, should be implemented through prayers, so it must be!
Beloved, the life of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior was orchestrated from heaven the same way each and every life is orchestrated by the Father; if Jesus did not suffer, died for us, how can we be saved from our iniquities? Hmmm! but he embraced his fate, to set us free forever; therefore, each and every one's life is meaningful to the testimonial of the mighty acts of God, there is a story to tell about each and every one of us, what is your story? Let us live our lives pleasantly to God, that our lives may be a living testimony to his mighty works, glorify his Holy Name among the heathens, forever and evermore. Jesus is coming back again soon! Let us love one another as ourselves! Thank you for your time! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 24:49
(49) And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
THE PROMISES OF GOD!
In reference to the above text; The Father promised Jesus, that after his resurrection he will send down the comforter to his believers to teach them all things, cf. John 14:26; after his resurrection, before he ascended into heaven, he assured his disciples of the Father's promises, encouraged them to wait for the fulfillment in the city of Jerusalem, read carefully, he instructed them to wait at a particular city, Jerusalem until they receive the power from heaven; why Jerusalem? Jerusalem is the city of God, cf. Hebrews 12:22, Revelation 3:12; faithfully, on the day of Pentecost, while the disciples were in one accord, the promise of the Holy Ghost was fulfilled, cf. Acts 2:14; therefore, whenever we receive covenanted messages, whether through dreams, visions, or verbally, let us double check the detail pieces of information, so that we may be at the right places waiting for our blessings at the appropriate time frames, for the promises of Jesus are always sure, yeses and Amenes; the gift and calling of God are without repentance. cf. Romans 11:29; faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. I Thess. 5:24; hold on to the Father's promises, it is already done, the moment he spoke it into existence; therefore, have patience, continue to do the will of Jesus, be ready to receive the promise!
Beloved, whenever God gives a covenant, he watches over his words to fulfill, double check his track records throughout the scriptures; his promises to Abraham, regarding the birth of Isaac, I Chron. 16:16, etc.; for he is always faithful to his words; therefore, let us wait upon the Lord, one thing about him is, whenever he is ready to fulfill his promises in our lives, nothing can hinder him from honoring his faithful believers; therefore, regardless of how many years, months, weeks or days we have been waiting for Jesus to fulfill his promises to us, continue to wait, never give up on his words, keep on trusting him, the promise will surely come to pass, at the appointed time! Continue to love one another as yourselves! Jesus is coming back again soon! Thank you for reading! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) I CORINTHIANS 3:17
(17) If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
GRACE WITH LIMITATIONS?
In reference to the above text, let's study it by segments; (i) If any man defile the temple of God; a temple of God, can be understood in two different ways; in actual sense, the temple of God, is a structured building, categorized as a sanctuary, the place of worshipping, of holiness, where his spirit dwells to interacts, communes with his children, cf. Exodus 15:17; therefore, God himself desires to meet with his children at a particular place to listen to their prayers, breathe, and smile upon them; he is of holiness, dwells in holiness, but turns away from filthiness, cf. Deut. 23:13; per the Psalmist, Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is Holy. cf. Ps. 99:5; therefore, let us keep our worshipping environments clean, well organized, for it is a godly thing to do; in the spiritual sense, the temple of God, is within our innermost spirits, the holy spirit habitations, the kingdom of light within our souls. cf. Luke 17:21; consequently, let us watch out for what we consume into our temples, in other not to defile it, also, be cautious of what we allow into and out of our temples; when a believer abuses their sanctified temples with lasciviousness we defile the temple of God, the habitation of the Holy Spirit; and he does not condone or connive with spiritual filthiness; therefore, free grace has limitations as to what is rightful or wrongful for believers to indulge themselves.
Beloved, where is the temple of God? It is within you and me; therefore, let us cherish who we are in this world, we are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people to show forth the princes of him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light, cf. I Peter 2:9, never think negatively of ourselves to give the enemy power to rule over our lives, for what is within us is bigger than who he is in this world; also, there are a couple of spirits indwelling us, the original spirit, the breath of God, within our souls, the second is, the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit given by Jesus Christ to believers on the day of Pentecost. cf. Acts 2;1-4; we are not by ourselves in this world, however, it is factual that, whatever we intake into our spirits that itself is what takes preeminence over our lives; the question is, what temple are you? Ponder over it! and continue to love one another as ourselves! Jesus is coming back again soon! Thank you for reading! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ACTS 1:8
(8) But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
THE POWERLESS CHRISTIAN!
Grace be unto you! A powerless Christian is a Christian who follows Jesus Christ, but does not understand who they are in him; case in point, Jesus Christ is in all things of creation, before he became man, born in the flesh, he was the word spoken to create everything that was created in the heavens and on the earth, cf. John 1-5; this is the key factor, factoring the concept of who he is; if we fully understand that he is part of God himself, belief, follow him, do his will; nothing can overshadow his glory upon our lives, or prevail against our souls, we are the powerful Christians.
Fruit of thoughts, when the man receives Jesus Christ into his heart as Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit comes to indwell his heart, to transform him into his righteousness; but the transformation process is not as easy as it sounds like, because before his redemption, he walked in darkness, did whatever everyone was doing within the world of darkness, however, after redemption, these associations, behavioral attitudes must be released with the old self, in other to fully embrace the new life in Jesus Christ, be secured in his anchor of salvation, grace and eternity; that is where the challenging issues surface to appease, influence, hinder the believer to backslide into his old ways of living; today, if there is anyone among us, who are saved, yet in any type of a struggle to free themselves from the past, be encouraged to know that you are not alone, Jesus is aware of the situation, he wants to help you break off the yoke, break out of the stronghold, whosoever the son of man sets free is free indeed, cf. John 8:33, talk to him about the situation, never, ever, let it go of his grace-filled hands to fall away from his free grace, you are a powerful Christian, believe in Jesus and in yourself.
Beloved, when a Christian walks in obedience to Jesus Christ, his godly attitude, draws the Holy Spirit anointing oils of empowerment from the bowels of Jesus Christ upon his/herself to be used mightily for his glory; therefore, referring to the above text, Jesus instructed his disciples to tarry to receive power after the baptism of the Holy Ghost, what did they do? they obeyed, as a result, they received the promise on the day of Pentecost, cf. Acts 2:1-4; on the contrary, whenever we walk in disobedience to Jesus, there is an invisible barricade from the enemy which hinders the Holy Spirit from manifesting his will upon our lives, rendering us powerless; therefore, whenever we hear to voice of Jesus, instructing us to do his will, let us obey him, no matter how difficult the task may be, for he never leaves us alone, but goes wherever we go to do his will. He is waiting for us to walk in obedience to his instructions, are you ready to do his will? Ponder over it! Let us love one another as ourselves! Jesus is coming back again soon!

(6) But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
IT IS TIME!
Grace be unto you! A few days ago, I happened to visit a newborn baby girl at a nearby hospital nursery; as I stood by her crib, perceived how she was snuggled up with warmful blankets into what seemed like a very comfortable posture inside her crib; thoughtfully, I gave praises to God for his miraculous works within the children of men; though, as innocent as this baby was, who on earth can be as innocent as I saw her on that day, except he/she can get back into the womb and be physically born again, cf. John 3:3; we all know that this cannot be possible in an actual sense, however, spiritually, all things are possible with Jesus, through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; therefore, if we are not yet born again either by the water baptism or by the Holy Ghost fire; it is time, see to it!
The Psalmist wrote; Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. cf. Psalm 127:3; therefore, when it comes to raising up children, let us train them along with the biblical principles, it is important to feed them with the kingdom words from their youthful years, that later on during adulthood years, they will not depart from it. cf. Proverbs 22:6; though we give birth to children on earth, they are not really ours, we are caregivers, who will account for our works someday before the throne of grace; therefore, let us be mindful of how we train them, never forcefully or strenuously, verbally or physically, be abusive towards them, with tenderloving cares, patience, endurance, tolerance, self-controlling attitudes train them with godly wisdom, in the rightful ways, guide in righteousness; for, Jesus was particular about the little children, read Matthew 19:14; Mark 10:14; it is time, see to it!
Beloved, as parents, we juggle daily between parental control of children versus work schedules, house duties, and responsibilities; if there is anyone among us, in this category, I encouraged you to have patience, enjoy the process, it is worth your time on earth; the thing is, they don't stay the same forever, as we celebrate their birthdays, they are getting closer to the point of flying out into the world of their own, leaving behind their empty nests, a void that cannot be filled; therefore, no matter what they do, disapprove when wrongful, applause when rightful, with a positive outlook on every aspect, enjoy them as part of the blessings of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Continue to love one another! Jesus is coming back again soon! Thank you for reading! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

God, the Father is love. cf. 1 John 4:8; full of compassion, his goodness, and mercies never fail but endure forever; nonetheless, he does not connive or condone disobedience nor, a respecter of persons he created, Acts 10:34; but thank him for Jesus, because of his redemption, many of us are alive on earth today; check the track records of God, how he dealt with the disobedience before Jesus came to earth; did he changed? No, he never changes, is the same today, forever and evermore shall be, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. cf. Revelation 22:13; therefore, let us appreciate Jesus, he is our Redeemer from the wrath of God, the Lord, and Savior of souls; by his free grace, we enjoy ourselves in him, however, free grace is not a privilege to walk in waywardness, it is to exemplify ourselves in Christ, do what he will do, be loving, sympathetic, compassionate, forgiving, and accommodate towards one another; living by faith in his righteousness, doing his will, giving God, the Father praises, thanksgivings through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Beloved, by divine revelation, the time is upon the earth, when God will start destroying things of the earth with fire, read Genesis chapter 19, for the narrative of what happened there; remember he said, I will no longer destroy the earth with water, Genesis 9:11-17; but did not say that he will never again destroy things of the earth with fire? regardless, let us be cautious, watching out for fires, amending our ways, pray, rebuking infernos, not only that but also, be eye openers to what goes on in and around us, to avoid igniting unnecessary fires.

(35) A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
WAS IT RIGHT OR WRONG?
Case in point, no one can tell a book by its cover, unless we read its contents; consequently, we can not tell who a person is without knowing what type of spirit indwells their hearts, the man can fool the whole world at a time, but cannot fool God; for God knows our frames, sooner or later our actions and behaviors will portray who we really are in the spirits; when our true colors began to show, it means that the cup of our unrighteousness is full, running over, it is time to deal with the issues buried deep down inside our spirits ourselves or sooner or later, heaven will intervenes in the affairs of men, and pass judgment upon what we fail to do; therefore, let us settle the matter, deal with the issues of what happened, judge righteous judgments, cf. John 7:24, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; let us listen to what the spirit is saying to the churches. a new day is a dawn!
Beloved, as believers, we cannot turn deaf ears on injustices prevailing against others, looking in the opposite direction of a dilemma, pretending like it is none of our businesses; you see! what does not concern us today, sooner or later may concern us, when things revolve anti-clockwise closer to our vicinities; therefore, do the right thing for others, speak up for them, when injustices prevail against them; John Heywood 1952 said, what is good for the geese, is also good for the gander; what is good for the man, is equally good for the woman; judge righteously, do the right thing for heaven's sake; for, The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. cf. Psalm 34:15; therefore, let us do what is rightful before the one who called out of darkness into his marvelous light, Jesus Christ. Love and treat other people as ourselves!

(KJV.) HEBREWS 3:12
(12) Take heed brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
BE OF BELIEVING!
For all that, as believers, when in a season of heavy heartedness, uncertainties or unanswered prayers, let us not give up the faith in Jesus, persevere in prayers through his name, discerning that through the sufferings, there are intended purposes to surface when it is over and done with; be certain, know that, no type of a predicament, can harm a believer to a point whereby the world would blaspheme the name of Jesus because they perceive evil upon our lives; for we are more than conquerors through him; therefore, whenever we find ourselves downcasted with the darker seasons of life, pray, continue to have faith in Jesus, be patient, trusting him, that no matter what the situation may be, things will not stay the same forever, the circumstance will change with the upcoming season of life.
Beloved, one thing that qualifies any believer as faithful is their belief in the word of Jesus, though at times what is required, is a very difficult task to obey; the scriptures mentioned three servants of righteousness, Noah, Daniel and Job, how did God qualify them as righteous? Read the book of Ezekiel 14:12-20; study the following books of the scriptures for detailed information; for Noah, Genesis 6:8-9:1; Daniel, the book of Daniel; and of course the book of Job; come what may, let us be rooted, grounded, steadfastly be faithful, trusting in Jesus; for without faith it is impossible to please God, cf. Hebrew 11:6; a faithful person is somebody who loves Jesus unconditionally, would believe, trust in him no matter what happens or not be happening to them; the question is, are we faithful? If not certain of the answer, let's double check the heart to perceive any spirit of unbelief, purge it out, remain faithful to Jesus! Continue ye in love! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(21) Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
WHAT CAN WE DO?
Grace be unto you! Though we ought to be our brothers and sisters keepers in this world; never allow the spirit of condemnation the chance to control our mindsets into hearts, go above the love limitations, to judge, point accusing fingers at others, no matter what our perceptions may be, for no one knows for sure who is doing what is perfectly required for Jesus, except himself; we may endorse, encourage, inspire, minister, counsel, preach the gospel to others, but do all things with love and respect for one another, without the judgments and condemnation of Jesus, for there is a day set aside for judgment, read John 12:47-50, for detailed information on the subject; also let us be encouraged to focus our thought processes on our callings, and do the best we can do for Jesus Christ, his eyes are over the righteous and his ears are open to their prayers.. . cf. 1 Peter 3:12; Jesus is saying to you and me; And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to every man according as his work shall be... I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. cf. Revelation 22:12-13; therefore, none of our works for Jesus Christ is wasted, for the angels are recording them against our names in the heaven books of records.
You see! There is nothing new under the sun, there are things happening in this generation that has already happened in the past generations; referring to the above text, Jesus has risen, yet he continued to interact with his disciples on earth before his ascension to heaven places; because of his covenant with his disciple, Simon Peter, he continued to stress the need for Peter to follow him; cf. Matthew 16:18; on one of the occasions, Jesus repeated himself to Peter, said,... Follow me; Peter turned around, answered Jesus with another question about what John will be doing, said, what shall this man do? Jesus then answered: If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. cf. John 21:22; therefore, brethren, it is very important that we focus on the will of Jesus, work it and not be weary in well doing, for, in due season, we will reap the fruit of labors, if we faint not. cf. Ephesians 6:9. if there is a call of Jesus upon our lives to follow him, do his will, let us be encouraged to follow him, do not sidetrack to what people are doing or will do for him, but answer the call for ourselves, it is a worthy lifetime commitment, but let's do it together in the bound of peace, unity, and love! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. JOHN 21:10
(10) Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
Grace be unto you! As the seasons of life changes, time and times goes by, each and every soul is getting closer to end of their sojourning on the earth; whether we like it or not, someday, we will face the throne of judgment to account for our works while on the earth; biblically, it is a fact, that cannot be cast away as unproven, unconcern, unimportant to our present life; therefore, as the called into servicing Jesus; it is an important factor to absorb, that, someday, we will account for our works while on earth, how we utilize the spiritual gifts and talents given to us by Jesus to help others, read, Matthew 25:14-30 for detailed information on the subject of accountability; believe it or not, that is what will determine the type of rewards to receive from Jesus, for he rewards souls according to their works. cf. Revelation 2:23; therefore, let us do the best we can for Jesus, work his works, diligently, faithfully, trusting him in the process, while we still have the ample time to do so for his glorification.
Jesus has risen, he had not yet ascended into heaven, but continued to appear to his disciples in different scenarios; at the time, some of his disciples went fishing, including Simon Peter, while they were inside the boat, on the sea fishing, Jesus stood at the seashores, started to chatted with them, .... to the point whereby he asked them to bring the fishes which they have caught unto him; read John chapter 21:1-19, for the full narratives of what transpired between Jesus and his disciples at the seashores that day; the point is, Jesus, asked them to bring the fish to him, not because he wanted to broil some to eat, but to use the fish as the point of contact, as an analogic perception for what he had intended to discuss with his disciples, especially Simon Peter, one of his disciples, discouraged him not to backslide into his old fisherman profession, and encouraged him to be a fishers of men; as the conversation continued, Jesus asked Peter three times, if he really loves him, if so, to Feed his lambs, and sheep; today, let us think deeply, set our priorities straight in Jesus, ask ourselves few questions, are we really doing what is required of us to do as believers or following after our own agendas, hearts desires in the name of Jesus? the answers are ours to ponder on!
Beloved, Jesus set an example for believers to follow, said, And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; them also I must bring,... John 10:16; therefore, the goal of our ministering is to bring others along to Christ, as he asked his disciples to bring him the fish, see the above text, he also, prayed to the Father, accounting for the souls allocated to him during his ministration on earth, cf John 18:9; therefore, each and every soul will account for their works, let us be encouraged not to lose hope in Jesus Christ, but continue to trust him regardless of anything, bring others along to salvation, do his perfect will, so that at the end of our lives, we may receive the crown of glories forever and evermore. Continue ye in Love! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 24:36
(36) And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
PEACE, BE PEACEFUL!
No matter what may be the reason for mentioning the Peace word; whether for love gestures, to ease tensions and stressful situations or to calm down a chaotic environment; there is one thing for sure, that at the mentioned of the word Peace, spiritually, the Peace of Jesus takes absolute control over negative situations, thoughts processes, mindsets and behaviors, aligns the human heart to pay closer attention to the wisdom of God, therefore, if we want Peace to reign supreme on earth, in our lives, let us depart from evil, and do good, seek to verbalize Peace and Pursue it. cf. Psalm 34:14; Peace be unto you!
After Jesus, resurrected, some of his disciples have not yet perceived him, but gathered together in one place, contemplated about his resurrection, as they discussed what had transpired in the past hours; surprisingly, Jesus himself stood among them, said, Peace be unto you; they were terrified, thought they have seen a ghost; but it was Jesus himself, the one who was crucified by haters, buried and rose again from the dead for you and me stood among them, suddenly all their fears were gone, he showed them his hands and feet, asked them to touch his flesh and bones for proof of himself, cf verses 37-39; therefore, Jesus has risen indeed; let us rejoice, be happy, love him, glorify his holy name for what he has done, doing currently, and yet to do for all souls in the present times. Peace be unto you!
Beloved Jesus surprised his disciples, gave them peace of minds, not to worry about him any longer, Jesus is still Jesus, he will do the same for us as well regardless of our circumstances, his promises are fulfilled by his grace, be going forward with Jesus, there are no more sufferings, worries, anxieties, fears in him, rather salvation, free grace, joy, peace and everlasting life. Unite in Love, keep the light burning! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. MARK 16:9
(9) Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
Grace be unto you! My friends, it is never too late for anyone to repent, have salvation and eternal life, so far as Jesus is concerned; no matter how sinful we are, or have been in this world, if only, the man will come to him with his burdens, having the hearts of repentance, he will surely receive us unto himself, without condemnations transform our lives, use each and every one of us for his glorification on earth and hereafter in heavenly places.
Case in point, Mary Magdalene, was the rumored adulterous woman, who was allegedly taken in the act, brought to Jesus by persecutors, questioned Jesus about her sinful behavior, to perceive what he would do about it; what did Jesus do? Read the narrative of St. John 8:1-11 for detailed information; in carnality, this type of a person was not qualified, or holier enough to be the first to see Jesus on the day of his resurrection from the dead, however, Jesus appeared unto her first; for the ways of God are mysterious; the grace is, when Mary Magdalene was delivered from her waywardness, she followed Jesus Christ, became his disciple; though not too much was written of her role among Jesus disciples, she dedicated herself to the will of God; consequently, it was not questionable as to why Mary would be the first person to see Jesus after he resurrected from the dead; therefore, my friends, it is never too late for anyone to come to Jesus, no matter what we have done, do, will do, the past, present, future sins, are entirely forgiven through his sacred blood shed on the cross of Calvary; just come to him! There is, therefore, now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus... cf. Roman 8:1; also, let us not rule women out of ministry, this is an important factor that women are important in the ministry of Christ, as well as their opposite counterparts; for it is the spirit that quickens, the flesh profited nothing.... cf John 6:63; therefore, I encourage the women of ministries, rise up and shine your touch lights, Jesus recognizes you as his worthy disciples!
Beloved, Jesus Christ transformed the life of Saul the persecutor to Paul the apostle, used him mightily for his glory, cf. the book of Acts; therefore, what we did before we met Jesus, does not matter to him, what matters to him most is what will happen to our souls, after we sleep in death; therefore, it is a serious matter to consider while we still have the chance to do something about our lives; it is easier said than done, never procrastinate any longer, buying time, come to Jesus now, at the end of days, it is worth your time; come! Continue ye in Love! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 24:39
(39) Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
Christ is risen from the tomb as he predicted, appeared to some of his disciples, yet many were doubtful of the authenticity of his resurrection, and believed not the witnesse's narratives that he has risen from the dead as prophesied; for the fact that they saw his sufferings from scourging, crucifixion, and maybe burial as well; therefore, after Jesus rose again from the dead, appeared to many people, among them were two of his disciples, who went a day journey to a village called Emmaus, about threescore furlongs, as they walked and talked about the things that transpired, miraculously, Jesus joined them in the conversation, but their eyes were blindfolded to perceived his presence with them,... cf Luke 24:13-53; until he was ready to reveal himself, reminded them of the reasons behind his dilemma, opened up their eyes after the conversation was almost over, gave them the power to understand the scriptures; therefore, Jesus Christ is the giver of power; ask, and it shall be given to you; seek ye shall find, knock, and the door shall be opened unto you; cf. Matthew 7:7; without him, we can do nothing of ourselves, cf, John 15:5.
Beloved; he also gave them the true understanding of his mission, saying, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, to rise from the dead the third day; that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem, cf.verses 46-49; therefore, this is the mission for all believers to fulfill; let us come together in unity, do the will of Jesus with fear and tremblings, Christ is risen indeed, he is coming back again soon to receive us into life forever and evermore. Come unto him with labors and heavy laden, have rest for your soul, Matthew 11:28. Let us continue to love one another as ourselves! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
