AAACHRIST

I have been given the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). I have been bought with a price; I am not my own; I belong to God (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

A GOD PRMISESSALVATION

Ephesians 1: 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[f] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every  way.

Part 2

Ephesians 3: 14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

SALVATION

 

“In reply Jesus declared, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.'” (John 3:3, NIV)

I laugh when I hear born again believers say they are out of work.  You seem God has plenty of work for us to do.  In fact, He gave us a job of telling people about Christ and many think it’s something that we aren’t supposed tp do.  In fact, if your family or friends are anything like mine you will get the strongest reaction from them when you let them know that you are born again.  And that reaction most likely won’t be that great!   People who really like you realize that they don’t so much.  They just thought they did.  You are quietly ostracized mainly by Christians who feel you are a tad too serious.  It happens so much…that you get used to it.  You have two choices at this point…(cause its a test) because you can either scale it back (your zest and enthusiasm) or you can keep praying, keep staying before God…ignoring all of the people and their views…keep being you!   I do not have time to evaluate what others are doing…because the devil tries his best to get me off course…but Hod daily loads me with benefits!   And I’m so glad.  Stsy on course…remember why you’re here and complete your mission!

 

 

AAACHRIST

 

 

I have been given the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). I have been bought with a price; I am not my own; I belong to God (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

 

Matthew 3: 2 “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”    (From The Smith Wigglesworth Devotional

I do not have permission to copy this, but I encourage yopu to purchase this book.  Today’s message challenges us to focus not so much on love, love, love; but on repent, repent, repent.

You see Jesus came to end your suffering, but first you must repent or confess   to him (between you and him) your sins and that you are sorry, ask for forgiveness and ask for help and peace.

Then you must accept him as your LOrd and Savior and the master of your life.  Then you can be sure of the plan of God for your life and for change faster than you can imagine.

Find yourself a good church home where they teach the Word of God so that you can continue to thrive and move forward.

A Final Thought (from the book)    (I love this quote)  ”  Weeping is not repentance, sorrow is not repentance.  Repentance is turning away from sin and doing the work of righteousness and holiness.”  (Page 454)

Every Soldier must be saved!   Please pray for their peace, protection and salvation!

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my

 

I was so empty before I took God on.  You know, I’ll admit that I knew about Jesus as a child.   Nobody in my family was sold out for God; not even me…as a result…the fire never burned in me.  The emptiness took over.  Eventually whatever was there was pushed to the background.  I jumped back and forth between nothingness and being with God.  Nothingness won out for a long time.  Then, I got sick of it.  There had to be something better…so I ran to the light of God.  I re discovered the Christmas miracle.

 

I did not automatically get the fire.  Because of that, there really wasn’t too much to hold me.  I actually found the fire looking for something else from God!    All I can say is wowee!!!

MATT 7:21 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

My prayer for you today is that when you receive the Gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ; the door to heaven…that you will ask for the fire!   God will give it to you..if you ask! 

 

Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” —Romans 10:9-13
