August 15th Worship Service – ““I Am the Light of the World”

In this well known “I Am” statement of Jesus, He declares Himself to be the light of the world. In a dark world in desperate need of light and direction, Jesus is the One and Only who can illuminate our hearts and minds to see and experience the love of God. As He shines through us, we are called to be His light to those around us.



August 8th Worship Service – “I Am the Bread of Life”

This new series explores who does Jesus say He is. Looking at several of His ‘I Am’ statements made in John’s Gospel will give you a clear portrait of the person and mission of Jesus. In this first message we see how Jesus is the bread of life sustaining and providing strength for you on a daily basis.



August 1st Worship Service – “The Love of God”

In this final message of the series, you will discover a fresh insight on the attribute of the love of God. God’s love for you is so vast and great that our human minds cannot fully comprehend this attribute. God loves you even when you are unlovable. His love for you is infinite and unconditional as He demonstrated His love by sending His only Son, Jesus.

“No Room for Unbelief”

Thought for Today: No Room for Unbelief

There is something in your life that needs to be done and it is going to take a miracle from God to get it done. You know in your heart that there is nothing that God can’t do.

You are leaning on family, friends, prayer warriors, and believers alike to stand in agreement with you that God can do anything. But the problem is, the longer you wait for the hand of God to move, the more those around you stop agreeing with the power of God for your life in that situation. They are beginning to mention what is happening in the world, such as, “I heard this person died from this and there is no cure. I know a person that went through the same thing, and they didn’t make it. I don’t think there is any way you can get out of this situation.” And the enemy of your soul is telling you to look around you because those who you thought would stand in agreement with you are falling away. 

They know this can’t be done; they know that can’t be done. And that is why the crowd of people that you had standing in agreement with you is getting smaller, simply because they know that there is no way out of this situation. 

Eventually you are going to be on your own. And, in your mind, you are thinking that the devil is busy pulling all your support away from you, making you go through this by yourself. I came by to serve notice that the devil is a liar on two levels. 

First and foremost, you are a child of the most high God. You are never on your own; you are never by yourself. The Word of God says, “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5).

As a matter of fact, so many children of God believe the lie that God only comes to you whenever there is trouble, but the Word of God says “He (she) shall call upon me, and I will answer him (her); I WILL BE WITH HIM (HER) IN TROUBLE (not “I will come to him or her in trouble”) but I WILL BE WITH HIM (HER), I will deliver him (her), and honor him (her) With long life I will satisfy him (her) and shew him (her) my salvation” (Psalm 91:15-16).

The second level of lies that the devil made you grab onto is this, he wanted you to think that he was the one pulling those people out of your life in this season of your need. I came by to serve notice it was not the devil putting those people out of your life at this time. 

The Lord is the one who is pulling out those who have doubt, uncertainties, unbelief and no hope for your miracle because, the truth of the matter is, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR UNBELIEF. 

The Word of God says it this way, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him (GOD) for he (she) that cometh to God must believe that He is (Who He says He is) and that HE is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrew 11:6).

The devil is a liar, and nothing is impossible with God. He is all knowing, all seeing, everywhere at all times and all powerful.  “If the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies (bring to life any area of your life that appears dead) by His Spirit that dwelleth in you” (Romans 8:11).

You are not by yourself in your waiting for the hand of God to move on your behalf. And it’s not the devil who is removing those who can no longer stand in agreement with you on your desire for a miracle from God. 

For it is written, “And when He (Jesus) came into the house he suffered no man to go in save Peter, and James, and John, and the Father and the mother of the maiden. And all wept and bewailed her: but He (Jesus) said Weep not, she is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed Him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. And He (JESUS) PUT THEM ALL OUT and took her by the hand and called saying maid arise. And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway, and he commanded to give her meat” (Luke 8:51-55).

The devil is not taking people away from you in your desire for a miracle from God. The Lord is moving those who have doubt, unbelief, fear, and hopelessness out of your life for this season. 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path because there is simply no room for unbelief when it comes your miracle from God.

Be Blessed

“KEEP YOUR PEACE”

Thought for Today: KEEP YOUR PEACE

It seems like, as we get closer and closer to the end of days, it appears that the world, the flesh, and the devil are taking things from the children of God. It appears the enemy is tearing families apart, taking away long-time friendships, taking over businesses and households alike. 

The enemy is taking over the minds of believers and non-believers alike. They are taking away health and finances, taking joy out of many people’s lives, and taking away direction and replacing it with confusion. As a matter of fact, the enemy of your soul is attempting to take something away from you as you read this very thought of the day. 

But I came by on my way to heaven to inform you, as a child of God there is one thing that the enemy cannot take from you. You can give this one thing to the enemy, but he will never be able to just take this one powerful thing that God has given you when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. This one thing will get you through the loss of friends and family members. This one thing will get you through the loss of your health or finances. Having this one thing from God will get you through the breakups and the confusion. 

It’s found in John 14:27, which says, “Peace I (Jesus the Christ) 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.”

Not only is the peace of God the most comforting thing a person could have in their life, it’s one of the most powerful defenses against the world, the flesh, and the devil. 

You see, God’s peace is nothing like the peace that the world talks about. For the Word of God says, “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ” (Philippians 4:7). 

This word, by itself, lets you know that there is a difference between the world’s peace and God’s peace. The world’s peace means nothing. The world defines peace as no stress, no confusion, no fights, no sickness, no trials, no tribulations, no heartaches, and no pains.

Jesus said MY PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU.  “What is the peace of God, Pastor Erick?” Plain and simple, the peace of God is this: FREEDOM OF DISTURBANCE, which means you will not allow anything to disturb your oneness with God. 

You see, the one thing the enemy of your soul never wanted you to get ahold of is this truth: when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior you became one with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. 

Don’t just take my word for it, this is a request for you from Jesus himself, take a look: “That they all 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 believer that thou hast sent me” (John 17:21). 

Listen to me, when you know that you are one with God there is nothing that the world, the flesh, or the devil can do to you, simply because you choose to hold on to your oneness with God. When you know that you are one with God, you will still have peace when the storms of life come because you hold the hand of the one who can calm the storm. When sickness comes upon you and your family, you can keep your peace because you are holding the hand of the great healer.  When your money is funny, your change is strange, and your credit won’t get it, you will be able to keep your peace because you hold the hand of the one that gives you the power to get wealth.

When the world, the flesh, and the devil throw everything at you including the kitchen sink, you can keep your peace because you are holding the hand of the one true God who says the battle is not yours, but it’s the Lords’.

For it is written, “And into whatsoever house you enter (wherever you go) first say Peace be to this house (in this place) And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it; if not it ( your peace) shall turn to you again” (Luke 10:5-6).

You have a choice today: you can keep your peace, or you can give your peace away by stepping into the trap of the enemy to deal with your situation on your own. But you must know this, the truth is that they can never take your peace away from you, but you can always give it away by letting go of God’s hand and dealing with that problem on your own. Keep the peace that God has given you by holding on to the Word of God, and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will keep your heart and mind through Jesus Christ.

Be Blessed

“Keep It to Yourself”

Thought for Today: Keep It to Yourself

In this season, God will begin to reveal Himself more and more to those who seek Him. You may ask “Who are those that are seeking God?” They are the ones who spend time in prayer every day to hear the voice of God and who worship God in spirit and in truth every chance they get to experience His presence. The people that spend time in God’s Word on a daily basis are the ones who are truly seeking the heart of God. 

I say to you my brother, I say to you my sister, keep praying even if you don’t hear an answer, keep worshipping even if you don’t feel His presence, and keep reading the Word of God even if you don’t always understand what you are reading. And know that, as you continue to do these things, your faith in God, your reliance on God, and your dependence on God will grow stronger and stronger. 

For the Word of God says “But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he (she) that cometh to God must believe that He is (everything that He says He is) and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6). 

In this season, the more you seek God the more He will begin to show up in your life in ways that your natural mind could not imagine. And because the devil cannot convince you that God is not who He says He is, simply because you have seen and experienced the move of God for yourself, the devil will begin to change his strategies against you.

When God moves in your life the enemy of your soul will begin to tell you to KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. He will begin to coerce you by saying that if you tell anybody about what God did in your life they will not understand, they will not believe you, and they will look at you like you are crazy.

Listen to me, the reason why the enemy wants you to keep the move of God in your life to yourself is this: Since the devil could not stop you from experiencing God for yourself, he wants to close the door for anybody around you to hear what God has done because it will give those around you hope that if God did it for you, surely, He will do it for them. 

The Word of God says it this way, “And they (sons and daughters of God) overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb (the Life that flowed out of Jesus) and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” (Revelation 12:11).

When God does something in your life it does not matter what others think. Tell people about the great move of God in your life, tell those around you about the power that God showed for your life, tell people about the grace and the mercy of God that showed up in that situation, and tell those around you about the love that God poured out on you even when you didn’t deserve it. 

“Why should I, or why do I have to tell people about what God did, Pastor Erick? That is between me and God.” I will say this to you, and you can accept it or reject it, although your relationship with God is personal, it could never be private. “No man (woman) when he (she) hath lighted a candle covereth it with a vessel or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candle stick THAT THEY WHICH ENTER IN MAY SEE THE LIGHT” (Luke 8:19).

The reason why the enemy of your soul wants you to KEEP WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU TO YOURSELF is because, if you tell anybody what God has done then it will give those around you hope and they will begin to seek God more. 

Don’t just KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. Tell those around you what God has done, it will begin to shift the atmosphere around you. 

For it is written:

“Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round about besought him (Jesus) to depart from them (they wanted Jesus to leave) for they were taken with great fear, and he went up into the ship and returned back again. Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him (Jesus) that he might be with him, but Jesus sent him away saying, Return to thine own house and shew how great things God hath done into thee. And he (the guy that experienced the power of God through Jesus Christ) went his way and published through the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him (look at what happened) And it came to pass that when Jesus was returned the people gladly received Him for, they were all waiting for him” (Luke 8:37-40).

Don’t keep the things that God has done for you to yourself, that is what the devil wants you to do. For if you tell anybody what God has done, not only will it change your life, it will give those around you hope and anticipation that God will show up in their lives, as well. Like the people in Gadarenes, they will be waiting on Jesus.

Tell people about the great move of God in your life and Be Blessed.
