MEMORIAL DAY

Let Freedom ring! Support the troops!

I pledge Allegiance to the Flag

Of the United States of America

And to the Republic for which it stands,

One nation under God, indivisible

With Liberty and Justice

For All.

 Memorial Day, a time we remember our fallen heroes, those who paid the ultimate price, those who died for the freedoms we enjoy. Let us never forget them, and their families and friends for this sacrifice. Let us salute with honor all who serve in our Military, and all who serve in harm’s way for freedom’s sake. Let us salute them with our prayers and words of thanksgiving and gratitude.

Psalm 27: 1  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?

Read: Psalm 91 and Psalm 121

God Bless you and Keep you, this is my Prayer.

GOING TO CHURCH?

Hebrews 10:25  Let us not neglect our church meetings, as some people do, but encourage  and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near (TLB).

First, let’s get something clear. The word “church”, when you read this in the bible, is not talking about a building. The “church” is a body, a group of believers. The disciples were a body of believers, followers of Jesus Christ. Our scriptures encourage us to come together; to support and encourage one another.

You need to know even though this world changes, the culture, what’s expected, what’s not expected, God never changes. The scriptures record in Malachi 3:6 For I am the Lord, I change not…… As God was in the days of old, he’s the same today. How can we know that? By faith. Jesus tells us in John: 4:24 , God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. To worship him we must believe that he is. And that he is a rewarder of those that seek him.

MOTHER’S DAY

Genesis 3: 20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living .

This is the time to remember our Mothers. We should honor them at all time, but during the month of May, we have Mothers Day. A national day set aside to honor our mothers. But I am always reminded, that a Mother does not have to be a biological thing. Any one who cares for another person, nurturing them and providing for their needs , that’s a mother.

We do know there are many women and men who care for their families , and other’s and perform those duties that mothers do. God made Man and provided Women as a help mate for man. God wanted man not to be alone. So mothers have a role that God has equipped them to perform.

God makes no mistakes. He is the master creator, the giver and sustainer of Life. He knew us before we were in our mother’s womb. So we are fearfully and wonderfully made. We are God’s chosen vessels, a royal priesthood. We The Kings and Queens of this world are standing through every test , that is why we must always do our best, showing God’s love to all the rest.

EASTER: RESURRECTION TIME

A TIME OF TRIUMP FOR CHRIST HAS RISEN AND LIVES TODAY.

The Awakening

John 9:25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not; but one thing I know that, whereas I was blind, now I see.

Hosea 4: 6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…..

During this season of the year, we focus on the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior. Remember he came that we might have life. (John 3: 16) Faith is the leader, and our sight takes second place. Because we believe, our faith, the reality of our faith becomes supreme. John 4: 24 God is a spirit : and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

We also read in Hebrews 11: 6 But with out faith it is impossible to please him : Jesus came for the lost; for those who did not know him. He did not come for the righteous. Matthew 9: 10-13 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house , behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. 11. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? 12. But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous , but sinners to repentance. We must never forget that we were once , one of those lost souls. Romans 3: 23 All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

To Awaken, one must acknowledge that they were asleep. You lack the consciousness of knowing the reality of the risen Lord, Jesus Christ. One must come to that place within, believing that God is, and that He is a rewarder of them who with , careful , persistent, attentiveness seek God.

CONSIDER THIS: How dare you preach and teach others when you have committed so much wick and evil acts against God and humanity?

CONSIDER THE RESPONSE: Yes that is so true; I was all those things. But how wonderful is the grace of God, who looked down on me and raised me up from that dark sinful life. Such, that I can now stand as a vessel of mercy. I can stand as one washed clean by the blood of Jesus. I can stand knowing my sins have been washed away. I can stand with the peace of God in my spirit. I can stand with Joy bubbling up in my soul. I encourage you if you have not Awaken? Awaken now! Awaken to the grace and mercy of almighty God, Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ rose from the dead with all power in his hand and he stands ready to take all your sins away, right now. He’s already paid the price for your freedom. All you need do is receive this gift of grace and mercy, and forgiveness. Allow Christ to fill you with his glorious presence. Awaken now, accept Christ as your Savior. Just say; Jesus come and be my Father, I want to be one of your Children, forgive me of all I’ve done not pleasing in your sight. I want to serve you Lord. Awaken in me your love and peace so I can tell others you are real and came to save. Thank you for saving me. Ok, according to the word of God, you are now saved. That’s it. You have now joined the family of God. Now begin to learn what that means. Start reading the Book of John, learn all you can about Jesus. Join a Bible believing Church so you can continue your Christian walk. Don’t let nobody tell you are not saved. The Bible said you are saved. Walk in what the Bible had proclaimed. Amen

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS, IT’S THE LORD’S

US soldier in the desert during the military operation turning to combat helicopter approaching covering his eyes. Backup is coming

SPECIAL READINGS: Psalm 90, Psalm 91        

 2 Chronicles 20:15…. Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s   

 What would happen if you looked at the circumstances you find yourself in and said” the battle is not mine it’s the Lord’s? What would happen if you did as Jehoshaphat, in verse 3; he reminded GOD of all He had already done.

What about you? Can you reflect on all God has already done in your life?  Jehoshaphat acknowledged his fear but proclaimed “but our eyes are upon thee” (verse 12). As followers of Christ, we need to be mindful, the battle is not ours but GOD’S. We can make all kinds of plans, and often they go astray; things just don’t work out, but God is still in charge. I encourage you to let the story of Jehoshaphat be an encouragement to you. You see he had three armies coming against him and his people. He was afraid. Yet, in his fear he stood before God waiting for instructions.

PRAYER FOR THE WORLD

“Black and white portrait of a young African-American man, eyes closed and hands clasped, praying devoutly.”

 2 Kings 6:16 Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.(NIV)

2 Chronicles 20: 15 ….the battle is not yours but God”s

JOIN Me as I stand on the promises of GOD

Pray for the Nation, Pray for the World, Pray for Ukraine, the people, the children, the weak, those who can’t defend themselves.

The bible in 1Thessalonian 5:17 Pray without ceasing.

Non-stop praying. How do you do that? Don’t give up! Keep your mind stayed on the things of  God. I encourage you to consider reciting Psalm 23, The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. Do this  seven(7) times a day until God gives  you his prayer direction. Pray God intervenes in that WAR in Ukraine. Opening the minds and hearts of the Leaders involved. Bind Satan on every side, send your angels to guard the children, the weak, those who are unable to protect themselves. Lord, we need you right now. People are dying needlessly. Lord, we are waiting on you. I lift my hands to you in  humble praise. Show your mighty hand, protect us from the evil of this world.

Touch the minds of the Russian leadership. Touch right now, turn them around so that love prevails. Let your presence be felt, dip them down in the storehouse of  your love. Trouble them on every side. Oh Lord, fix it right now. Let your mighty presence be felt. Stay their hand, Lord. 

My God, creator of heaven and earth, we will serve you, in the morning, we will serve you, in the noontime, we will serve you all night long. Give us the strength to stand without fear. Lord we know you will lead us and guide us through it all.

Thank you Lord for deliverance. We claim it now and rest in your Word.

 Yes, Lord the Battle is yours. We stand on your Word:  Psalm 23, Psalms 91

You my Lord are an unchanging God in this changing World, our trust is in you. You will keep your word to your children. We belong to you Lord, and thank you for your Love and forgiveness. 

Praise is on our lips as we acknowledge your presence in our life. Thank you Lord for hearing my Pray. Pastor Addison

TAKE IT FROM THE FATHER’S HAND

Scripture: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)                                                                                   

Special Reading: Psalm 121, Psalm 27, “Just Give Me Jesus” by Anne Graham Lotz

As Christians we are heir to almighty God. The Bible tells us we are his children, his son’s and daughters. Because God is our Father, we stand in line to receive all he has for us; all that belongs to him belongs to you and me. We are part of the family of God.

When Satan comes to destroy us he has to get God’s permission to approach us. You see, God has placed a hedge around us just as it was around Job. (Job Chapter 1) Satan cannot touch us unless God moves that hedge. The holiness of God surrounds each of us, no one can take us out of the Master’s hand. (John 10: 27-30)

IN WHOM DO YOU TRUST?

SCRIPTURE:  Prov. 3:5Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not to your own understanding.

THOUGHT:  We all go through life trusting something or someone.  It’s either God or the world.  (Matthew 6:24)

Every decision we make we make trusting it will work out the way we desire.

  • Over the holidays we trusted our love one’s to get the gifts we wanted.
  • We get in the car, trusting it will start and take us where we desire to go.
  • Those we love, we trust won’t deceive us, they won’t let us down, won’t lie on us, won’t try to harm us.

The Bible tells us that we should trust in the Lord (Prov. 3:5).  We are instructed not to rely on ourselves, not to rely on our own understanding, our senses,  what we see, what we hear, how we feel, what we smell, or taste.  How many times as children our mothers encouraged us to take medicine that didn’t taste so good, that person who’s badly dressed, dirty looking–yet he’s a God fearing man, honest in his work clothes.  The thief, clean shaven, with $200.00 suits, wonderful cologne on, yet he’s a devil in disguise.  See! We can’t go with our senses.

THIS ROCK IS JESUS

WHEN YOU NEED AN ANCHOR, YOU GO TO THE ROCK.

Psalm 118: 22 The stone which the builders refuse is become the headstone of the corner.

Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer: my God, my strength, in whom I will trust: my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower.

KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW, JESUS IS THE ROCK

NAVIGATING THE STORM- Part 3

Psalm 23: The lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

God has given me a word for this season. He imprinted in my spirit Psalm23, 7 days, 7 times, morning noon and night.

God used me years ago to have those who were in need of a word from him for whatever reason, to recite Psalm 23.

For those that did that they reported to me that it made definite difference in their lives and they indicated God answered their Prayers. I encourage you to give it a try.
