Reaching Higher in Worship – The Passion For Worship

In this message as we reach higher in worship, you will discover the importance of passion and worship. As the bride of Christ we must have a passion and love for God. The Song of Solomon teaches us that the Shulamite had a deep love for her husband to be. Just as she had a love for her husband to be, we must have a passion and love for God. Those who seek God will find Him and experience His power and glory.



Reaching Higher in Worship – The Place of Worship

As we reach higher to God in our worship, in this message we will journey with Abraham and Isaac as they climbed Mt Moriah to worship the Lord. We see through Abraham’s example, he came to a plac



Feb. 7th Sunday Service – “The Presence of Worship”

As we reach higher in 2021, let us reach higher in our worship.  God longs for His Church to worship Him and is looking for genuine worshipers who will worship Him in spirit and in truth.  In this message we will look at the Woman with the Alabaster Box who had a passion and desire to be in God’s presence.   You will be challenged in this message to pursue passionately after the presence of God.

“Seeing In The Dark
”

As this world gets darker and darker many will begin to struggle even more than ever to see the right way to live in this world. It will get harder and harder to see the right way to treat others. It will get harder and harder to see how to do right by others because of the darkness approaching in these last days. Because of the darkness many will not be able to see how they will make it, how they will survive, or how they will they be able to go on with a normal life anymore. So many people are saying, “I do not see how me, or my love ones can get over this sickness.” As a matter of fact, someone reading this Thought of the Day right now is saying, “I am finding it harder and harder to see how this family is going to stay together.” Someone is saying, “I do not see how my marriage is going to make it,” or “I cannot see how these bills are going to get paid.” Darkness has overtaken many in these last days. It is as if the part of Psalm 23 that says, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, . . .” has come to pass in your life. You cannot see anything, and fear is overwhelming you. Depression has taken over you, and you begin to reach for things (ideas, ways, and plans) in the dark, trying to figure out what you are going to do.

Listen to me! As you are walking through this valley of the shadow of death, I come by to encourage you it is just a shadow. And you need to know this. The shadow of a dog has never bitten anybody. You are a child of the Most High God. The internal switch you have within you will shed the light on any situation you are in. The switch is the Word of God, which says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalm 119:105) You are a child of God. Pray (communicate with the Father), telling him the truth of your heart, and then sit down and listen. Communication takes a speaker and a hearer, and you cannot hear if you are doing all the talking. God will shed light on whatever situation you are in. For the Word of God says, “The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: the Lord lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26 [emphasis added])

You are a joint heir to the throne of God. When you go to the Word of God, you turn on the light that pierces the darkness. “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” (Isaiah 60:1) If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you have an internal light switch which will show this world, and the world around you, that you are not like everybody else. You do not have to reach in darkness trying to feel your way through the situation. For the Word of God says, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1) As you begin to turn on this light (by speaking the Word of God), there are going to be those around you who will think you have lost your mind. They will think you are a religious nut case. Do not let them bother you. The Word of God says, “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” (John 1:5 )

There are going to be those around you who will try to convince you to do things another way. Let me put this truth in your spirit. The Word of God says, “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20) If you confess Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, the Holy Spirit of God says to you today, “. . . upon this rock (upon this confession) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18 [emphasis added]) For it is written:

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.” (Isaiah 9:2)

Grab the Word of God. Say what God says about the situation. Watch God show you that He is God, and there is none like him.

Be Blessed!

“Scared to Ask
”

The enemy of the church has placed is a growing problem in the body of Christ. For years, religion has been plotting and planning a strategy for this very moment. Religion has made you believe it is wrong to question God. Religion has made it a bad thing to ask God to show you how real He is in your life. Or, to show you He hears you about a certain situation you are in. Religion has made it a bad thing to ask God for a sign about this/that. I have come by to reveal the strategy of hell behind this. The lie the enemy wants you to believe is if you are asking God for a sign, or if you question God about any matter in your life, you are questioning God’s existence. But the truth of the matter is the enemy of your soul wants you to believe this lie to actually cut off your communication with God. Because if you question God, it will open up the lines of communication for God to answer you. If you ask God for a sign, it will open up the avenue for God to show you He is who He says He is.

Listen to me! Asking God a question about a matter does not mean you are questioning His existence. There is nothing wrong with asking God “why, when, or what.” We run into a problem when we try to figure out how God will answer any of those question. There is nothing wrong with asking God a question. Every question you ask God and every question He asks you is an invitation to intimacy. Questions are an invitation into a dialogue and to communicate. Religion will say you cannot reason with God. But the Word of God says, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: . . .” (Isaiah 1:18) Religion will say you cannot ask God for a sign. But the Word of God says, “. . .ye have not, because ye ask not.” (James 4:2)

I do not know who I am talking to, but as a child of God you cannot be scared to question God. As a child of God, when you question him you are not questioning His existence because He has already showed you who He says He is so many times in your life. When you ask God “what is this,” you are opening up the lines of communication so you can have an intimate relationship with God the Father. When you ask God “why is this/that happening,” you are not questioning his knowledge of the situation. You are opening up an avenue to get to know God intimately about an area of your life. Religion will have you so high minded you must not question God about any matter in your life. But I say to you there are, and will be, many times in your life you will need to give up your dignity to experience God’s divinity. The Word of God says:

And this is the confidence that we have in Him (God), that, if we ask any thing according to his will, He heareth us: And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him. (I John 5:14-15 [emphasis added])

Because you are a child of God, it means you have an intimate relationship with God, the Father, through God, the Son, by God, the Holy Spirit. There is nothing wrong with asking God a question or asking for a sign. For it is written:

Moreover the Lord spake again unto Ahaz, saying, ask thee a sign of the Lord thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the Lord. And he (the very same person who said that he will not ask for a sign) said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? Therefore, the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (God with us). (Isaiah 7:10-14 [emphasis added])

Do not be scared to question God about any situation in your life. And do not be scared to ask God for a sign from Him. For when you ask God a question, you are inviting him into an intimate conversation. And when you ask for a sign, it is to show those around you that God is God, and there is none like Him.

Be Blessed!

“Running to Instead of Running From
”

If you have spent time in the Word of God, you should not be surprised or overwhelmed by what is happening in this land. Jesus said to his disciples:

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines (need and want for food), and pestilences (sickness), and earthquakes in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:6-8 [emphasis added])

This know also, that in the last days perilous (danger or risk, hazardous) times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady (tending to intoxicate or make giddy) highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (II Timothy 3:1-5 [emphasis added])

All these things are happening as we speak. And many of those who say they know God (but only know of God) are running around, afraid, and panicking just like everybody else in the world. I do not know who I am talking to, but I came by on my way to heaven to encourage you. If you are a child of the Most High God, truly confessed with your mouth, believe in your heart Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God, the Father, you are not like everybody else. Jesus Christ said:

Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? (Luke 12:51-56)

When everybody else is running here/there, the true church will be running to the Lord. When famine (a need for food) hits, you shall remember “. . . Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4) When pestilence (sickness ) hits the land, you will not be like everybody else, wondering around trying to figure out how to get healed, you will run to the Lord Jesus. “. . . and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5) When division comes upon the land, you will not be like everybody else. The Word of God says:

Till we all come in the unity of 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: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to be deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: . . . (Ephesians 4:13-15)

What I am trying to tell you is while all the mess is going on in the world, you cannot be like everybody else, running around like a chicken without a head or in fear. While all this mess is going on in the last days, the church (the true body of Christ ) will run to the Lord. For it is written:

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.” (Isaiah 2:2-5 [emphasis added])

While everybody else is running around looking for answer, you – yes, you – my brother and my sister, you must run to the Lord, simply because you are in this world, you are not of this world. Take the high road and run to Jesus Christ for He will supply all your needs according to his riches and glory.

Be blessed!
