August 7th Worship Service – Keys To Your Promise Land

When you think of the Promise Land, what enters your mind? A land flowing with milk and honey. When we think of the Promise Land, it sound like a nice, relaxing place to vacation and be grateful. Consider this, wh

July 31st Worship Service – What To Do In the Meantime

As you wander through the unknown’s of life, what do you do in the meantime? Understanding, in spite of the delays, God is working all things out for your good according to His purpose and plan. In this message, our Pastor’s will share with you four things that you can do while going through the “In the Meantimes” of life.



July 24th Worship Service – Look For the Signs

Moses and the Israelites wandered in the wilderness for forty years. For them the wilderness was a place of absolute uncertainty not knowing when they would enter into the Promise Land. In spite of the unknown, they knew God was in them and would guide them. Likewise, as you and I encounter the unknown, the same God who was with the Israelites, is the same God who is with us, and He will lead us to the fulfillment of His Promises.

“Right With God”

Thought for Today: RIGHT WITH GOD

There are many things that we do in life that we know are not right. And when those things happen, the devil hurries up, steps in, and says, “See, I told you that you are not right with God.” 

You try to do things in an attempt to make yourself right with God again. You begin to go to church more, you begin to pray more, you begin to read the word of God more, and you put on more worship music so that you can be right with God.  

You might not like what I am about to say, but going to church, reading the word of God, praying, and worshiping does not make you right with God.  

For the word of God says “For He (God the Father) hath made Him (Jesus the Christ) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; THAT WE MIGHT BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS (that we may be in right standing) of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21). 

Going to church, reading your bible, praying, and worshiping God in spirit and in truth doesn’t make you right with God, but those things help keep you right with God.  

What does it mean to be right with God? Well, simply put, it means to be one with God. The world, your flesh, and the devil will tell you that you cannot be one with God. For if you are one with God, what’s His is yours and what’s yours is His.  

I am just going to put this right here in front of you so that you can make your own decision about being one with God. 1 Corinthians 6:17 says, “But he (she) that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” 

Here take a look at this one, “That they all (this means you) may BE ONE, as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they (this means you) also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory thou gavest me I have given them; THAT THEY MAY BE ONE EVEN AS WE ARE ONE” (John 17:21-22). 

I don’t know who I am talking to, but you need to know this truth that when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior that, and that alone, made you right with God. Listen to me, YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD in Christ Jesus.  

Say it with me, “I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.” You are in right standing with God. Yes, you may fall. Yes, you will make mistakes and you will sin. But the word of God says, “But God commendeth His love towards us (God showed you just how much He loves you) in that while we (this means you) were yet sinners Christ died for us (this means you)” (Romans 5:8). 

The last thing the world, your flesh (feelings and/or emotions), and especially the devil want you to know and/or understand is that you are THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. 

For it is written, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS man (woman) AVAILETH MUCH” (James 5:16). 

When you truly accept the fact that Jesus paid the price for all your sins on the cross, past, present, and future, your love for Jesus will empower you to do your best to live a life that is pleasing to God.

Repent, ask God to help you, YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. And know this, because you are right with God, your prayers will not only have an effect on you, but your prayers will have an effect on the world around you, as well.

Be Blessed

“Be Truthful With God”

Thought for Today: Be Truthful With God

There are many in this world who say they want to hear from God about a certain matter in their life. They either go to church to listen to the pastor, hoping that God will speak a word through them, or they listen to the preachers or teachers to hear a word from God.  

It’s not a bad thing to go to church in hopes of hearing a word from God. It’s not a bad thing to listen to the prophets, preachers, and/or teachers to get a word from God. But you must understand this truth: those are not the only ways to hear a word from God. 

I don’t know who I am talking to, but the pastors, preachers, and the prophets are merely instruments to lead, push, and/or guide you into your own personal relationship with God.  

You can hear from God for yourself. Yes, we still need the pastors, preachers, and the prophets, for the word of God says, “How then shall they call on him in who they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14).

But you have to put yourself in a position to hear from God, yourself. For the word of God says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we (this means you) may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). 

You have to put yourself in position to hear from God for yourself. The word of God says, “And ye shall seek me and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). 

In my 27 years of ministering, I have found that many don’t really want to hear from God themselves, they would rather wait to hear a word from God through the men or the women of God.  

Many don’t want to hear a word directly from God because of fear; fear of what God is going to see when He looks into their heart as He speaks to them, fear of what God is going to say to them because of the life that they are living, fear that God will beat them up or throw down the hammer of judgment because of the life they are living.  

The reason you don’t want to expose who you truly are in the presence of God is out of fear that He may see parts of you on the inside that are ugly. 

Listen to me, the word of God says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). Stop listening to the lies of the devil that tell you that God will punish you if you expose all that you are to Him.  

The word of God says, “But God commendeth His love towards us in that while we (this means you) were yet sinners Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you that way. He wants to conform you into the image of Jesus, but you cannot be afraid to be truthful with God.

For it is written, “And they said to Moses, ‘Speak thou unto us (you speak to us Moses) and we will hear; but LET NOT GOD SPEAK WITH US LEST WE DIE’” (Exodus 20:18-19). 

There isn’t anything about you that God does not already know. Expose that ugly area of your life to God and be truthful with Him, for when you expose that area of your life to God, it gives Him permission to come in and change that area. Be Truthful with God today and Be Blessed.

“If You Would Just Listen”

Thought for Today: If You Would Just Listen

You have been asking God to deal with something on your behalf that has been nagging you for a while. The enemy has used a person or a situation to torment you.  

No matter what you do or what you say, it seems like the enemy is constantly poking you to irritate you about a certain matter in your life. 

To make matters worse, you have people in your ear telling you that you should do this and you should do that, you should say this and you should say that. Their instructions are worldly, fleshly (from their feelings and or emotions) or just plain evil. And the more you entertain the thoughts, words, and whispers of the world, your flesh, and the devil, the more irritated, angry, and frustrated you get. 

I don’t know who I am talking to but the Holy Spirit of God says to you “If you truly want to get rid of your enemy, stop listening to the world, your flesh, and the devil.”  

For the word of God says, “Blessed is the man (woman) that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his (her) delight is in the law of the LORD; and in His law doth he (she) meditate day and night. And he (she) shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that bringeth forth his (her) fruit in his (her) seaso, his (her) leaf also shall not wither and WHATSOEVER he (she) doeth shall prosper” (Psalm 1:1-2).

The Lord is saying to you, “I have already told you what to do on several occasions, the problem is that you don’t feel like doing what I told you to do. The problem is that you don’t feel like what I told you is the best thing to do. The problem is that you don’t think what I told you to do is going to solve the problem of getting rid of your enemy.”

“‘I remind you,’ says the Lord, ‘My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9). 

“You can’t get rid of your enemies, but I can” says the Lord God Almighty. “But if you choose to continue to listen to the world, your flesh, and the devil, instead of My voice” says the Lord, “your problems and your enemies will stay in your life.”

For it is written, “Behold I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him and obey his voice, provoke him not for he will not pardon your transgressions, for my name is in him. BUT IF THOU INDEED OBEY HIS VOICE (if you would just listen) and do all that I speak then I will be an enemy unto thine enemy and an adversary unto thine adversaries” (Exodus 23:20-22). 

God wants to relieve you of that situation and deal with the enemy that is tormenting you. You would be amazed at the instant change IF YOU WOULD JUST LISTEN to that still small voice which is telling you to do the opposite of what you are feeling and the opposite of what everyone else is telling you to do. Listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit today and Be Blessed.
