Straight Talk From The Pastor

Ps 110:2-3 KJV

The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. 

1 Cor. 4:20 KJV

For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power. 

Something is troubling me in this season of modern Christianity as we know it. And it has to do with the fact that there are so many Christians who have grown up in Church and never seen anything supernatural take place.

In fact, in many Churches it isn’t even about the Bible any more. If you take the diagnosis of your to Church, they will offer you some sympathy and a support group and watch you die. It is sad that when you get among many Christians who don’t believe in the power of God, they honor you for how well you are coping with the treatment.

As for me, I am hungry for manifestation, I am adjusting my life and examining myself, I am taking a long look at my personal belief systems all in an effort to ensure that I don’t minimized the power of God in this hour.

Maybe you need to ask yourself the question, “Why Do I Go To Church”?  Are you like many Christians who go out of habit, or to appease their conscience, or maybe to check out the talent among the congregation? But Church shouldn’t be purely natural; we are a supernatural people.

I don’t want you to congratulate me or sympathize with me. Don’t turn me loose until the power of God affects my being. We have authority and power and it is in the anointing. Being a carnal Church, where everyone looks the part but there is no genuine passion for God, cannot be an option for us in this generation.

It’s time that we become spiritual agian instead of being so normal that we are unable to operate in the realm of the spirit. Just talking about a supernatural God won’t do it; just celebrating that God is in the midst of His people, isn’t enough – even right there in His presence, believers will remain subject to the same things as unbelievers, until they engage with the anointing through action and bold faith.

Just like in Acts chapter 4, when the Christians were being intimidated to stop preaching the Word in the name of Jesus, they prayed for added boldness and power to see signs and wonders performed at their hands, so we must answer the voices of discouragement and unbelief in the world and even the Church with the same response.

We are not sorry people having to deal with the demons of our fathers. We have power to resist sin. Grace is not a license to sin; it is the power to overcome sin. As a believer, you have to start the new trend in your family. Break away from the status quo and get hold of the power of God for your life and future. Don’t blame anyone for where you are because it will cause you to waste time working out whose fault it really is! Recognize, “Whatever the sickness or disease, however disturbing the fear and distressing the lack; however long the addiction has had its hold and however dark the depression seems to be, I have power over it!”

We don’t panic like the world panics when the doctor says its terminal. We don’t give up on life when storms come. We have the power to command natural circumstances and to take authority over everything that opposes the blessing of God on our lives.

According to Isaiah 10:27 the anointing will remove the burden from men’s shoulders and destroy the yoke from off their neck. One thing is for certain, the common denominator with every human being is that somewhere, each one has a reason why they need the anointing power of God.

Everyone has something in life that causes them to walk more bowed over than they ought to, as if carrying a heavy burden. Everyone will find themselves, sooner or later, doing things that they said they never would do. You wanted to serve the Lord and have a great family, but something has you by the neck.

We are in the day of His Power, and the Kingdom of God is not just beautiful and inspiring words, the kingdom that we have inherited is one of power. If Jesus could not preach the gospel, or get the whole job done without demonstrating the Kingdom, then we are missing something if we settle for a Christianity that is based on rhetoric and fine sounding sermons.

Ultimately, Christianity is just another religion – another moral code, until we see something. If you ask a Hindu and a Moslem and a Jehovah’s Witness, what they can offer you from their Holy books, there is no doubt that they too have some wisdom, some moral teachings and some fine sounding sermons. But when you say, like Elijah, “Whoever, is God, let Him answer by fire”, finally you can see who is truly Lord of Heaven and Earth.

For us to see the fullness of what God has promised us, we will have to decide to trust the anointing. This was one of God’s instructions to us.

Prov 11:24 NKJV

There is one who scatters, yet increases more; And there is one who withholds more than is right.

If you listen to the average person’s testimony, it is usually about what they received. We have the mindset that receiving is the greatest thing that can happen to us. But It turns out that there is a greater empowerment of blessing that comes on our lives when we give, than when we receive.

By releasing something, room is made for your increase, and the door is opened for your progress. One of the spiritual truths that most of us have not been taught is that If you are feeling stuck at any level, we may need to examine our giving. You will rise to the level of your sacrifice in life and no further. When you stop giving you lose your capacity for more. The world’s mindset for achieving success is to get and hold on to every asset you can amass, and if you release it you will lose out. In fact, this is the quickest way to kill your own potential. Every area of your life in which you are not giving anything, but you are receiving something, is dying. Giving allows your life to be replenished and refreshed.

Whatever you are doing in life, the secret of growth is to engage in it with all your heart. Don’t withhold what you could put in – be passionate and enthusiastic. Your excellence will shine out and open doors for you. Giving is about operating in an attitude of generosity in every way: with your time, your money, your ideas, your abilities, your love, your attention, your knowledge and your skills; in fact, with every resource that you command. Giving more will take your life to another level. It is the thing that triggers a Greater Harvest than you have ever seen before.

Your marriage may be good, but what would it be like if you were to give your whole self to your spouse? Your ministry may be bearing fruit, but what would happen if you loved those people God has given you to minister to with everything that is in you? You may be covering your bills, but what would happen if you started sowing financial seed like you used to when you were desperate for God to meet your needs? If you are a believer, you know that the scriptures are replete with the admonition to be generous in all things, because at the end of the day, that is the virtue most like our blessed God.

Proverbs 11:25 The generous soul will be made rich.

Acts 20:35 It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Prov 19:17 He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, And He will pay back what he has given.

Let me ask you this: is everything you own close to you, or are you using your personal resources to have a positive impact on someone else? Maybe it is time to think about being a blessing to others, and trust God to take care of you. Maybe it’s time to give so much at work that your new name become “Sought After.” Maybe it’s time to pour so much into your family that your kids can rise head and shoulders above their peers. The devil’s plan is to make you and I so afraid of giving, and so reluctant to get involved in this system, that we will never enjoy its rewards, because we are afraid of running out. If you yield to that fear you will never know what God has in store for you the other side of your willingness to co-operate with the Kingdom of God. At this point in your life, I encourage you to be teachable and to allow someone to stretch you – unless you are content to play in the Little League all your life.

Why not make the determination to make the Super Bowl? Your life and results will increase and grow as you increase and grow. There is no mystery: your current results are an indicator of the person you have become so far. You will never see a significant harvest in your life if you stay in your comfort zone.

 

Are You Serious!

1 Peter 4:17

For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God.

Sometimes we hear of see one of the saints say or do something that is so contrary to biblical teaching, and we want to say to them – Are You Serious?

You may hear another Christian say something like, ”I’ll never forgive them for that”- your response should be – Are You Serious?

Or they may say – “I was up late last night, I don’t feel like going to worship today” ”- your response should be – Are You Serious?

Or after they have gotten paid – they may say – “I don’t have anything to give”- your response should be – Are You Serious?

When they say, “I know what the bible teaches, but I’m not ready to do that ”- your response should be- Are You Serious?

Do you feel that forgiving others and not keeping a record of wrongs are just nice ideas? Do you conclude that sexual purity is outdated in this generation, and that God isn’t serious about that nowadays? Do you believe that the purpose of God in this world is something for others to attend to since you are simply too busy with your family and your business? For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God. There are different types of judgment talked about in the Word of God and today I want to talk about the judgment which is directed at the house of God. First of all, this is not the judgment which is to take place when Jesus return and we will know who makes it into Heaven!

The moment you and I said yes to Jesus, that decision was made. Our Sin issue was taken care of then and there. We will not be in trouble on that day! Life is not a rehearsal – it is the gift of God for us and it is good. It’s not an endurance test either.

Life is serious business, it was designed to be lived in joy! In order to do that, you will have to decide to have confidence in God’s ability to hold you and to make a way for you, even in the face of the impossible. His immense love is more powerful than the sum of all your setbacks and mistakes.

You can’t have purple-dyed hair on the trading floor. They won’t take you seriously. You can’t be a rock star and show up in a formal suit. That doesn’t match your chosen audience. To be serious is to learn how your appearance will open the door to certain environments.

The Judgment That Begins At The House Of God Is Different: It Is about the maturing of the saints. This is a judgement about the purification of our character This is a judgement about our motives so that we genuinely reflect the nature of God in the Earth. Judgment comes to us when God speaks to us about growth – not so that we can make it into Heaven- but so that we can demonstrate to the world who our God is.

But really it takes place as God washes us with the water of His Word, so that He may present us to Himself as a glorious church, without spot or wrinkle. (Eph 5:27) At any given point in your life, the Word should be working in you, bringing about greater maturity, Greater Strength and a Calmer, more Responsible, More Powerful approach to life in line with what it says.

The greatest challenge you will face as a Christian is to fight the prevailing winds of our culture. It is going to take a decision to sit under the Word of God to allow your mind to become renewed. As you do this, old things start to fall away. There are no short cuts. Don’t let your life happen to you; make sure you happen to your life! Don’t waste another day.

Get serious about the Word of God.

 

 

How Is Your Giving?

Prov 11:24 NKJV
There is one who scatters, yet increases more;
And there is one who withholds more than is right,

If you listen to the average person’s testimony, it is usually about what they received. We have the mindset that receiving is the greatest thing that can happen to us. But It turns out that there is a greater empowerment of blessing that comes on our lives when we give, than when we receive.

One of the spiritual truths that most of us have not been taught is that If you are feeling stuck at any level, we may need to examine our giving. You will rise to the level of your sacrifice in life and no further. When you stop giving you lose your capacity for more.

Many people achieve a level that they perceive to be comfortable, and then simply stop pushing for more. Whoever told you that everything that is in your hand was for your consumption alone? How will you be able to distribute to others if you are only operating with just enough for you? This attitude will stop you from being maximized in who you can become in the purposes of God. It will affect your life in every arena.

The world’s mindset for achieving success is to get and hold on to every asset you can amass, and if you release it you will lose out. In fact, this is the quickest way to kill your own potential. Every area of your life in which you are not giving anything, but you are receiving something, is dying. Giving allows your life to be replenished and refreshed.

In 2018 – Live!

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God. 

Life is not a rehearsal – it is the gift of God for us and it is good. It’s not an endurance test either. Life is serious business, but it is designed to be lived in joy.

Yes, there are moments when we are crying, and when we hardly even know if there is a God, but He always brings us through. “Don’t die yet!”

Mankind is naturally predisposed to expect the worst in life. We easily accept that it won’t work and that it is impossible, but David said, I would have lost heart if I had not believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:13) The Spirit of God renews and refreshes us to believe again.

Expectation and hope dies if we insist on looking at life solely from the natural realm, that is when we demote ourselves and transfer our trust away from the Lord. But if we submit our dreams and aspirations to Him once again and judge Him faithful in all His ways, our strength will be renewed.

Don’t let heaviness sit on your spirit today. That is why a rhema word from God is so important, just one clear word from God can change your whole perspective on life. In St. Lukes Gospel, (Chp. 13), we find a woman with a spirit of Infirmity sitting on her for 18-yrs. She was a worshiper, yet for those 18 yrs nothing was said in the temple that could cause her to straighten up and walk up-right.

Believers need to get hold of this: the help that God sends is His Word.The Word of God is loaded with power to produce in your life, but it must be revered and obeyed.

Here is where many may disagree with me, but that is okay, if you go to a Church where everything is about deliverance and they have deliverance services every week, stand back for a moment and think about it; even if there are several hundred people in your Church, how many demons do they all have between them? How many demons can a Christian have since the Holy Spirit moved in on the inside and He doesn’t co-habit with the devil. In addition to that, the Word is all the deliverance we need as believers.

If someone has hurt you, and you will experience hurt in your life, it is called living, you must learned say, “They made a mistake.” People make mistakes and that includes all of us. The blockage in your heart can be released and you don’t have to carry that weight.

If God has given you a dream, never put it on the shelf. Lift your hands and declare that I am still standing in the realm of possibilities, because my God is a God of the second, third and fourth chance. Nothing can separate me from His love and therefore nothing can keep me down. Let your spirit rise today and enjoy your life!

Start this year off by dusting off your dreams, your aspiration, even your perceptions about what has not worked so far, let your past experiences serve as training for your future. Hold fast to His faithfulness and release the people that you have been holding in your jail, release the situations that are weighing heavily on your mind, Embrace God’s kindness and the unchanging nature of His covenant.

Live

 

Life Is About Choices

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Deut 30:19 KJV

The older you get, …it is as though I hear God saying to me, “Johnny My Son, the more we walk together, the more precious you become to me. You are a Prince among men. A noble man. Your life is a living epistle”,

And my response is, “I Love You Too Father”. 

What is my point, the  person you are becoming is the burning issue of your life before anything else. This is what God has His eye on concerning you, and the day you take full responsibility for your own character and behavior, is the day you start to mature. 

Life is about the choices you make. Often in my private times, I sense what I am doing in ministry as it relates to the teaching gift that I have been blessed with, is equipping people to live prominent, beneficial, integrity-driven lives that will have a positive effect on the kingdom of God wherever they go all over the world, I treasure that call.

Speaking of choices, I have chosen to ask for the impossible so that when manifestation comes NO flesh will take His glory. I choose the blessing not the curse. I choose faith not fear. I choose the Word not beautiful stories. I choose hope not despair. I choose courage not cowardice. I choose Heaven on earth. I choose peace not turmoil. I choose joy not sadness. I choose praise not heaviness. I choose the future not the past. I choose laughter. 

I choose love not hatred. I choose forgiveness and not a record of wrong. I choose vision not regret. I choose life not death. I choose healing not infirmity. I choose victory not defeat. I choose breakthrough not dead ends. I choose God’s Will not man’s opinion. I choose prosperity not poverty. I choose purpose not meaninglessness. I choose to serve others not take advantage of them. 

I choose to be lifter not a burden. I choose to bless not to curse. I choose the love of God not self-righteousness. I choose humility not pride. I choose grace not merit. I choose dignity not arrogance. I choose honor not vain glory. I choose dependency on God not independence. 

I choose the anointing not gimmicks. I choose authenticity not pretence. I choose integrity not appearances. I choose to count my blessings not my losses. I choose to focus on the good not what’s wrong. I choose to be gracious not judgmental. 

I choose to understand others instead criticizing them. I choose compassion not condescension. I choose to be a refuge for all men, not a killer of the weak and hurting. I choose to take the wrong rather than exonerate myself.

I choose to die to myself so that others may live a better life. I choose never to write anybody off because He never wrote me off. I choose to help the wounded because He loved me the most and gave me His best when I was at my worst. I choose God’s character. 

I am so excited to see what God will do with us as we choose to place our reliance totally on Him and His Word; as we refuse to place our self righteousness before Him as a reason why we should be blessed and instead receive His mercy and allow Him to be God in our lives.

Choose Life

Because He Asked Me

Rev 3:7b NKJV

‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”

 Yes, it has been a while since I’ve posted anything on this blog; having said that, I will begin this writing by stating that I am increasingly bothered by the fact contemporary Christianity is trying to make God acceptable to man instead of man becoming acceptable to God.

After all, He makes the blind see and the lame walk! He gives us a garment of praise instead of a spirit of heaviness! He lifts us up, He heals us, He gives us beauty for ashes and stirs up joy again when we are feeling suicidal, – don’t try and change Him to fit within the parameters of your program! Let Him be who He is. His anointing of counsel provides the practical know-how for every day behavior that takes us to the place of living in the midst of our dream.

It doesn’t work to try and hang out with someone who is always trying to change you.  You grieve Him when you try to make Him fit to what you want. In fact you drive Him away with that attitude!

The Key of David is the key of power and dominion. In fact it is even greater than dominion; it is the anointing of conquest – the power and ability to win EVERY TIME! When David went to war, He never lost a battle! What was his secret, or his key? It was the attitude of praise and worship that characterized David’s life. For David, worship wasn’t an event, it was a daily preoccupation. In Psalm 34 it was David who wrote, “I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth!”

In this writing, let’s look at what we could call, “Our Public Worship

 When you come to worship the Lord, there are simple things you can and must do as you work out a right relationship to Him. It’s not a question of your personality or preferences, it’s all about what GOD likes, and what pleases Him.

So many people have trouble buying gifts for other people, because they always choose something that they themselves would like, instead of thinking of the recipient’s likes and dislikes! It’s just like that when you come into God’s presence. It’s time to get yourself off your mind, and to consider how God wants you to behave in that moment to worship Him

First of all we need to STAND in the presence of God. It shows respect and deference. Don’t be casual and act like it doesn’t matter, because the Lord is worthy of honor and reverence. When your kids want to sit down in the worship service, why not start teaching them deference for the Lord!

CLAP your hands first and foremost for the King of kings. If you can clap for the president, and the mayor and the football team, you can clap for the undisputed Lord of Heaven and Earth!

Raise up a SHOUT! There is a sound to victory. You may think you are the quiet type, but if something excites you enough, or if something scares you suddenly you will shout! Don’t wait for the pressure to be on before your shout is forced out – shout willingly for God. Like it was for Israel at Jericho, your breakthrough may be in that shout. Don’t say, “I’m not the shouting type.” You are a shouting type when God tells you it’s time to shout!

LIFT UP YOUR HANDS to Him! It’s a sign of your surrender and an expression of worship. Don’t let it bother you if others aren’t lifting their hands – you lift yours!

Your SONG is also more important than you realize. Singing is not the job of the music team at the front – you need to have a spontaneous song in your heart. In fact you can tell that your life is going down when you lose your song, and the first thing that happens to indicate that you are coming out of the pit is that God will put a new song in your heart! You are still being processed, but you still find a reason to say “Thank you, Lord!” Let your song be heard as you fill your mouth with praise for your God

And yes, I could talk about DANCING before the Lord, I could talk about BOWING down before Him, but I think you get my point, I am simply saying that I want to do what He delights in Because He Asked Me. After all is said and done,

He is worthy of all that and much more.

We all Have Clay Feet

Dan 2:34

You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces.

In the text, King Nebuchadnezzar of ancient Babylon saw in a dream what He perceived to be an invincible image. Daniel explained the dream to him and one would think that he would have properly applied what was told to him. Through a course of events, just two chapters later you find this man out in the wild roaming the fields like a wild animal on his hands and his feet, eating grass like an ox.
Have you ever thought about how close you are to a fall?

One of the things that I was taught early in ministry by my Bishop is that with such free access to social media, we all are just one mouse click, one email, one text, or just one voicemail away from having everything that we’ve done build our integrity and reputation, all can come crashing down and scattered in the wind of public mockery in a matter of moments
We All Have Clay Feet.
None of us are invincible, Proverbs 16:18 teaches us that; “Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall”.

If you have been around any length of time, you will have come to the conclusion that being talented is not enough to bring about success. In fact if people choose you simply on the basis of your gift rather than your heart, then you will be a problem to them and yourself. We are not called to be legends in our own eyes. We are called to serve.
It About Character Development.

I love the story of 1 Sam 22, wherein David while on the run from King Saul,
escapes to the Cave of Adullam.   And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him.(vs.2) We all need those safe havens for our development. It would be a place where people who aren’t necessarily impressive to start with; people with issues and attitude problems, would be able to just come and hide in the atmosphere of the Word and the anointing, until the Spirit of faith and dignity came on them like it did to those men who came to David in the cave.

Later accounts tell of David’s Mighty Men, the very ones who had started out below the bottom rung, but who later were capable of mighty accomplishments and victories.
Just because ‘We All Have Clay Feet’, does not mean we all have to fall.

Feed Your Soul

 

Give Yourself Every Possible Chance

It’s an interesting feature of being human, that we can only enjoy today when there is something to look forward to in our future. We are not just creatures of the moment, because we are made in the image of God. We are people of vision and purpose.

It’s very important when we have achieved a significant life goal or won a great victory, that we keep walking to embrace something new, or life will start to lose meaning and focus. When Elijah had just defeated the prophets of Baal, stirring up a massive display of God’s power, he had no vision or confidence for confronting Jezebel and ran and hid out of fear.  Depression overtook him, but God came and gave him a fresh assignment and he was able to go forward again.

It is a sobering conclusion to understand that God never calls us to accomplish something that won’t force us to depend on Him. Birthing any kind of dream that God has given involves challenges and seemingly impenetrable barriers. However, I have learned that if I refuse to focus on the size of my own strength and continually look to the God who spoke His word to me, I will be able to accomplish the impossible. We must never be content to let life sit us in a little chair and tell us that there is nothing in our future to reach for. There is a spirit of renewal that is available to us.

Job 14:7-9 shows us how this works
For there is hope for a tree, If it is cut down, that it will sprout again,
And that its tender shoots will not cease.
 Though its root may grow old in the earth,
And its stump may die in the ground,
Yet at the scent of water it will bud
 And bring forth branches like a plant.

You may have come to a point when natural hope has run out, and depression has begun to creep in; maybe the doctor gave you a bad report, or you may feel cut down by life because of broken relationships, crushed dreams, or repeated failures. The Word says that even if you have been at this place for some time, there is hope for you – it is a supernatural hope and it will cause you to revive and grow strong in an entirely new season of your life. This is the spirit of renewal.

Notice how the renewal takes place: “at the scent of water” the stump will bud. This is talking about the Word of God. When the Word comes to you and strikes your spirit again, fresh life will spring up.

When you are cut down by life, don’t take a break from church, even if your tragedy took place among the believers, because it is the Word that will bring you a fresh scent of what God will do in your life.

Take note that the Word doesn’t come with trumpets and fanfares in neon lights! The Word comes as a scent on a breeze. You just catch it as it is released. It seems light and insubstantial, and you can almost miss it, but it is the key to your breakthrough.

When you are in a painful season, don’t seek the comfort of pitying friends, seek a Word! That is the time when you can’t afford to miss a service because you don’t know when your Word will come forth.

Now you SAY about yourself the same as that Word God sent to you. You have been authorized to decree a thing and it SHALL be established, so make a decision that you are a winner and declare it. Nothing shall be impossible for you. It starts with a decision

Your Word might come as a “what if?” thought. What if I made that phone call to say I am sorry? What if I asked again, went again, tried again? As soon as you catch the scent of it, act on it! It is your way out. There is always something you can do about where you are, even if it is simply to maintain a good attitude in the midst of your situation.

Remember, when trouble is in your life, you won’t understand what is happening to you, so make sure that you let God decide how He will deliver you. The answer usually won’t look as you expect it to. The battle is the Lord’s and by setting your hope and expectation on His goodness, you WILL obtain a good report.

Bright futures respond to an unyielding indomitable determined RESOLVE not to accept the status quo. If you keep looking to circumstances to determine how likely it is that you will win, you are setting yourself up for discouragement or depression.

Please remember, amazing things happen when you pray. People are not defeated by circumstances but by the weakness & malnourishment of their spirit, where the real power resides.

(Prov 18:14),
The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?
So keep your connection with God strong as you commune with Him over His Word.
Always Give Yourself Every Possible Chance.
