Nov. 6th Worship Service – The Blessing of Wanting to Give Up

“Giving Up” is a place we all find ourselves.  The greatest breakthroughs we experience happen right before the greatest pressure to give up.  The psalmist said, “Weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning.” If you find yourself ready to give up, be encouraged your blessing is right around the corner.

Oct. 30th Worship Service – Part 6 – Loving Like Jesus

What do you do when you are offended and hurt? In 2 Samuel 10:1-5, we see how King David and his men were offended but did not react in the way we would think. Instead, David chose to show compassion. When we face opposition, hurt, or offense, we can choose to react negatively, or love like Jesus. Watch this powerful message as we wrap up the series, “Forgiving What You Can’t Forget”.



Oct. 23rd Worship Service – Part 5 – The Power of Forgiveness

Peter asked Jesus how often a person should forgive, perhaps, one time, five times, or even ten times. Jesus responded, “70 x 7” meaning that forgiveness is not equated with a number of times. Jesus taught in this scripture that if you are going to be a forgiving person, you cannot keep score. Forgiveness is not about keeping count; it’s about losing count. In this message, you will discover that the power of forgiveness is not a mathematical equation, but forgiveness is unlimited.

“Just Because”

Thought for Today: Just Because

There is something that is going on in your life that you have been crying out to God about. Your feelings are getting the best of you because you don’t think God has heard your cry for help.  

The enemy is tormenting you because God has not answered your request. The enemy is telling you that God did not hear you that is why He is not answering you.  

Listen to me, the only reason the devil is trying to convince you that God is not listening to you is to convince you to cut off your communication with God. But I came by on my way to Heaven to remind you that Jesus said “men (women) ought always to pray and not faint” Luke 18:1.

I know you have not received an answer from God, I know it seems like God did not hear your request, but that should not cut off your conversation with God. The last thing the devil wants to hear come out of your mouth is this: “JUST BECAUSE God did not answer me does not mean that He didn’t hear me”.  

For the word of God says “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, HE HEARETH US; AND IF WE KNOW THAT HE HEARS US, WHATSOEVER WE ASK WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE THE PETITIONS THAT WE DESIRED OF HIM” 1 John 5:14-15.

When you say GOD HEARS ME the world will think you are arrogant, when you say GOD HEARS ME, religion will say you are prideful, and when you say GOD HEARS ME the devil will say you are lying.  

The last thing that the world, your flesh, and especially the devil wants you to know in your heart, mind, spirit, and soul is this truth GOD HEARS ME.  

You see, when you make this statement, your confidence is not in you, your confidence is in God. Grab the word of God and say what He said about the situation, for the word of God says, “All that I hear you say I will do unto you says the Lord” Numbers 14:28.

Speak the word of God over that situation, in other words don’t say what you feel, don’t repeat what the world is saying, and don’t entertain the lies of the devil. Say what God said and know that God will hear you. When the enemy is tormenting you about this certain situation stop right there and say GOD YOU SAID. 

Have a conversation with God and continue to talk to God and know this truth JUST BECAUSE GOD has not answered you does not mean He didn’t hear you.  

For it is written “ For I said in my hast, I am cut off from before thine eyes ( JUST BECAUSE you didn’t answer right away Lord) nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried out to thee ( I  know that you heard me)  O love the LORD all ye his saints for the LORD preserveth the faithful and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer. Be of good courage and HE shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD” Psalm 31:22-24.

You want to frustrate the world, your flesh, and the devil instead of them frustrating you? Say this out loud:  GOD HEARS ME. Say it again, GOD HEARS ME. One more time, GOD HEARS ME. As you continue to make this statement it strips the power of the devil from tormenting you. And remember JUST BECAUSE GOD didn’t answer you when you thought He should, does not mean He didn’t hear you.

BE Blessed.

“Keep the Word & Keep the Promise”

Thought for Today: Keep the Word & Keep the Promise

For most of your life you have been taught that the devil doesn’t want you to keep God’s Word in your heart because he just doesn’t want you to know who God is.  Religion tried to convince you that because you are a sinner you must get your life right with God first before you get to know God through His word. 

But the Word of God says “ But as many as received him, to them gave he (she)power to becomes sons (daughters) of God even to them that believe on his name” John 1:12 The truth of the matter is when you KEEP GOD’S WORD you get to KEEP GOD’S PROMISE, and God promises that when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, God gave you the ability to become His child. And when you become a child of God the devil has no more power over you.  

And as far as religion telling you that you had to get right with God first before you can keep His word in your heart and keep all the promises that God has for you, the word of God says “But God commendeth his love towards us (God showed us just how much he loves you) in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us”. 

Listen to me, one of the main reasons why the world, your flesh, and the devil fight you so hard to get you to live your life according to their standards is simply because when you keep the word of God as your way of life, you will keep the promise of God in your life. 

What the enemy doesn’t want you to know is the agreement that God has made with you when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. I came by on my way to heaven to show you what the devil never wanted you to know hidden in God’s word.  

Here is the agreement that God has made with you, yes you, it is found in Deuteronomy 29:9 “KEEP THEREFORE THE WORDS OF THIS COVENANT (agreement between you and God) AND DO THEM THAT YE MAY PROSPER IN ALL THAT YE DO”. 

To prosper means to succeed in material terms, be financially successful, flourish physically, mentally, and emotionally in every area of your life. Does this mean you won’t have trials? NO. Does this mean that you won’t have heartache, tribulation, or pain? NO! Does this mean the world, the flesh, or the devil will stop attacking you? NO!  

 I don’t know if you know this or not, but God and His word is one in the same. You keep the word of God in your heart, you keep God in your heart. To keep God in your heart is to keep God’s word in your heart. This is what John 1:1 meant when it said “In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with God and THE WORD WAS GOD.  

God made you a promise that when you keep the agreement, when you accept God’s way of having an intimate personal relationship with you through His Son Jesus the Christ, the Holy Spirit; you will receive all the promises of God. This is the agreement that God has made with you. 

“For it is written Neither with you only do I (God) make this covenant (this agreement) and this oath. But with him that standeth here with us this day before the LORD thy GOD and also with him (her) that is not here with us this day” Deuteronomy 29:14-15. 

God himself made you a promise even before you were born that if you kept His word, He would keep His promise to always be there with you. And if God be for you who can be against you. Keep God’s word in your heart, mind, and soul and know that the promises of God are yea and Amen.

“Hold On To It”

Thought for Today: Hold On To It

There is something that the enemy is looking for you to give to him. The reason why he is waiting for you to give this one thing to him is that he cannot take it from you, simply because he did not give it to you.  

The enemy wants you to give your peace away. He does this by convincing you to give that person a piece of your mind. Tell them about themselves, don’t let them get away with that, you have the right to tell them off.  

But the word of God says, “A fool uttereth all his mind; but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards” (Proverbs 29:11). Don’t be so quick to give them your peace by giving them a piece of your mind.  

The peace of God is too valuable to just give away. Gods’ peace is nothing like the peace of the world. There is a difference between the two. “How do you know that, Pastor Erick?” Well, Jesus said “PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

Here is the difference between the two: The peace of the world is freedom from problems, trial, heartaches, pain, stress, confusion, frustration, agony, and fear. But the peace of God is freedom from disturbance. 

Now I know you are asking “What in the word does that mean, Pastor Erick?” The word of God says in 1 Corinthians 6:17, “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” The peace of God means that you will not let anyone or anything disturb your oneness with God.  

When trials and tribulations come, they won’t rattle your cage because you are one with God. When heartaches and pain come knocking at your door, yes you will feel it, but you will not allow it to disturb your oneness with God.  

When they curse you out, talk about you, lie about you, ridicule you and mock you, because you are one with God, it will give you the power to (or the ability to) HOLD ON TO the peace of God.  

When you don’t give them a piece of your mind because of what they said or what they did, they will be the one confused, perplexed, walking away in anger because they do not understand why you still stayed peaceful.  

When you stay one with God, when you know that God is in control of everything in and for your life, this gives you the ability to hold your peace. This is what the word of God meant in Philippians 4:7, “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  

Don’t be so quick to give your peace away by reacting or responding to their actions, words, or deeds. They cannot take your peace from you, but you can easily give your peace away to them by giving them a piece of your mind right then and there.  

For it is written, “I said, I will take heed to my ways (I will think before I do or say anything) that I sin not with my tongue; I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me. I was dumb with silence, I HELD MY PEACE, even from good and my sorrow was stirred” (Psalm 39:1-2). 

The Lord is the Prince of Peace, He has given you His peace, HOLD ON TO IT, don’t give it away by reacting to what they do or say. Keep Your Peace today. 

BE BLESSED
