April 24th Worship Service – “I’m Speechless”

In the midst of uncertainty and tragedy, we have the hope in Christ that we are more than conquerors through Him. There are times when we are weak and speechless not knowing how to pray. However, because of the resurrecting power and

“Anointed by God”

Thought for Today: ANOINTED BY GOD

There is a lie being spread in the church that has kept many of God’s children from walking in the power of God. The lie, which has been spread for years in the church, is that only those who are in the five-fold ministry are anointed.  

This idea comes from Ephesians 4:11-12, which says, “And he gave some, apostles; and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some pastors, and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.” 

Yes, God did anoint individuals called into one of the above ministries to edify or build up the body of Christ, but religion has made you believe that only those mentioned above are anointed.  

Can I speak the truth to you today? If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you have been anointed. YES YOU, you read right, YOU ARE ANOINTED. You see, the word “anointed” does not just mean to be selected to a certain position in the kingdom of God.  

You have believed a lie which says that if you do not have a position in the church then you are not anointed. The devil is a liar. You see, another definition for the word “anointed” is when the power of the Holy Spirit comes upon, or the ability of God that comes upon, a person and enables them to do things that they are not capable of doing with their own strength.  

The enemy does not want you to know this truth that YOU ARE ANOINTED by God. The very minute you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior you were anointed and you were given the ability to do things that normal people just can’t do.  

For the word of God says, “But he (she) that is joined unto the Lord is one Spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17). You have to get this in your heart, your mind, your spirit, and your soul. The word of God says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man (woman) be in Christ, he (she) is a new creature (a new type of human being) old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.” 

When you said “Jesus, I accept you as my personal Lord and Savior,” God took His Super and fused it with you natural, which gives you the ability to live a supernatural life.  

Yes, the Pastor, the Prophet, the Preacher, the Teacher, and the Evangelist are anointed, but I came by on my way to heaven to inform you, SO ARE YOU. You may not be anointed in the five-fold ministry, but you are anointed of God.  

For it is written, “But the anointing which ye have received of Him (the Holy Spirit of God) abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you; but as the same ANOINTING teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie,  and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him” (1 John  2:27). 

You cannot live your life by what you feel, you must live your life by what you know. Agree with the word of God, get up each day and say “I AM ANOINTED BY GOD,” say it again, “I AM ANOINTED BY GOD,” say it one more time with me, “I AM ANOINTED BY GOD!”  

When you accept this truth and get it in your spirit, no weapon formed against you will prosper.

“Last Resort”

Thought for Today: Last Resort

Every day that you wake up you must have a heart to live a life that is pleasing to God. This does not mean that you will live a perfect life or that every day will be a day of bliss. Religion has lied to many believers in the Lord God Almighty, telling them that once they are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ everything will be good and pleasant.; There will be no trials, no tribulations, no heartaches, and no pains. This is a lie from the pits of hell. We are imperfect people living in an imperfect world. The word of God says, “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). 

The struggle that so many of us have in this life is that we leave prayer (communicating with God) as a LAST RESORT. You will hear it come out of the mouth of many believers that, in the midst of trials, they will say “ALL I HAVE LEFT NOW IS PRAYER,” or, “ALL I CAN DO NOW IS PRAY.”  

We try everything else first. We try to fix things ourselves, and when we can’t fix it ourselves, we go to momma, or daddy, or granny, or grandpa. When that doesn’t work, we go to the pastor, the preacher, the prophet, or the man/woman of God. And when that doesn’t work, we make the statement “ALL I CAN DO NOW IS PRAY.”

I don’t know who I am talking to but the Holy Spirit of God says to you today that you can save yourself so much anguish, pain and suffering if you would stop making Him your LAST RESORT.  

I speak this truth to you; you cannot avoid sin. What I mean by that is, sin will always be right there waiting for the perfect opportunity to overtake you. The word of God says it this way, “If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? But if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door and unto thee shall be his desire, AND THOU SHALT RULE OVER HIM” (Genesis 4:7). 

Listen to me, as long as you are living in this fleshly body the world, your flesh, and especially the devil is sitting there waiting for you to fall and fail, because the minute you do it is a green light for them to attack to cause you to sin and to keep you in sin. If that’s not enough, they will convince you that you can get yourself out of the sin or temptation to continue in the sin. Then they will tell you to go to momma or daddy because maybe they can help you. They may not want you to go to the pastor or preacher because of the chance they may lead you to talk to the Lord about it, but they will take the chance on you talking to them rather than God.  

Listen to me, the last thing the enemy wants you to do is talk to God first about whatever it is you are going through. They would rather you go to everything and everybody else first before going to God.  

Don’t get me wrong, God may use momma, daddy, granny, grandpa, preachers, prophets, or pastors, but you don’t go to them first and leave God as your last resort. Go to God first and if He uses any of the above then hallelujah!  

But go to God first, because you will find that He will save you from so much trouble when you don’t use Him as your last resort.  

For it is written, “The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished” (2 Peter 2:9). 

When the world, your flesh, and the devil come at you, don’t wait until the last resort to pray; seek His face right then and there and you will be surprised by how many battles you will avoid in your life, because God already knows how to pull you out of the temptation.

“Do I Really Know God?”

Thought for Today: Do I Really Know God

All around the world, there are many who say “I KNOW GOD.” The word KNOW in the Hebrew language does not mean the same thing in the English language. To know someone in the English language simply means to know of his/her existence, but in the Hebrew language, a person can only know someone if they have a personal and intimate relationship with them.  

In Genesis 18:19 God says about Abraham, “I KNOW HIM” meaning God Himself has a very close relationship with Abraham. In these last days, you will hear and see many say that they KNOW GOD, and then there will be those who say they do not know God, and there will be those who think they know God.  

Today the Lord is asking you, “Do you really know Me?” For some, the answer is a resounding yes, to others, it is a shameful no. But to many who are being honest, the truth is “I don’t know.” 

Some will say they KNOW GOD because they go to church, but I say to you that going to church does not mean you know God, just like standing in the garage does not make you a car. Yes, going to church will help you grow your relationship with God, but it does not mean that you KNOW God. 

Some will say they KNOW God because they read the word of God. I remind you that the word of God says, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word and not a doer, he (she) is like unto a man (woman) beholding his (her) natural face in a glass. For he (she) beholdeth himself (herself) and goeth his (her) way and straightway forgetteth what manner of man (woman) he (she) was” (James 1:22-24). 

You may be asking, “How DO I REALLY KNOW IF I TRULY KNOW (have an intimate relationship with) God, Pastor Erick?” Jesus said it this way, “If ye love me (if you want an intimate relationship with me) keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide (live in you) forever. Even the Spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him; but ye know him for he dwelleth with you and shall be in you” (John 14:15-17). 

You can tell when a person truly KNOWS (has an intimate relationship with) God, but not by how they live their lives. What the world would call evidence is what the word calls fruit. The fruit of the Spirit, or the evidence that you have an intimate relationship with God, is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith (in God and not in man) meekness, temperance; against such there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23). This is how you know if you truly know (have an intimate relationship with) God.  

For it is written, “And hereby we do know that we KNOW HIM if we keep His commandments. He that saith I KNOW HIM and keepeth not his commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk (live) even as He walked (lived)” (1 John 2:3-6). 

When you truly KNOW the Lord God Almighty, every step you take in life will be filled with the fragrance of the knowledge of who He is. Don’t just tell the world you KNOW GOD today, show them that you have an intimate relationship with God by the life you live. It will attract those around you to look for their own personal relationship with God.
