Only God Can Make America A Great Nation!

Would you not agree that 2020 is probably the most unusual year you have ever witnessed? It definitely is for me. The ravages of the COVD-19 international crisis, political upheaval, the resurgence of racism, bigotry, hate, division at unprecedented levels not seen since the 60's, frequent natural disasters all over the land, and now a …

A Trio of Permanent Blessings

2020 has been surreal! There has been a multitude of natural disasters on the planet. The COVID-19 outbreak literally shut the world down, infecting millions, and resulting in thousands of deaths.

https://videopress.com/v/dRupgeRn?autoPlay=true&loop=true&preloadContent=metadata Click play for a video recording of this article! As I watched the global COVID-19 crisis unfold and evolve, like everyone else, I became anxious, upset, and wondered why it was happening. I listened to what various 5-Fold Ministry Offices said.

TIS THE SEASON TO CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF JESUS!

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.  December 25 is not the day He was born but the date chosen to celebrate His birth. Jesus' exact date of birth is unknown. Christmas is a Holy Day, not a holiday.  But when we look at how Christmas is celebrated, do we see many holy …

God is Omni

The word “omni” means all. God is omniscient, omnipresence, and omnipotent.  These are His natural or absolute attributes. God is omniscient.  This attribute means God knows all things—past, present, and future.  God is all knowing, has infinite knowledge, awareness, and understanding.  When God asks you a question, He is not looking for information because He …

Thanksgiving is a Key Discipline for Christians!

Body of Christ, let’s remember that physically we are in the world but spiritually we are in the Kingdom of God.  Thanksgiving is a gigantic part of the Kingdom lifestyle. Gratitude is a feeling but thanksgiving is an action. Thanksgiving is expressing to God the gratitude that is in our hearts. We express it to …

Every Day is a Day of Thanksgiving!

Annually, America celebrates Thanksgiving Day on the fourth Thursday of November. We gather with family and loved ones to thank God for all His blessings--past, present, and future--and to enjoy a sumptuous turkey feast complete with all its trimmings. The word “thanksgiving” means to acknowledge God’s goodness by expressing thanks to God—in prayer, in song, …

CHRISTMAS IS THE CELEBRATION OF THE BIRTH OF JESUS!

The world has labeled this time of year as the "holiday season." It is Veterans Day and already it has begun preparing for Christmas and New Years. Stores are decorated and full of items for gift giving and celebration. I even saw a roadside Christmas tree market the other day. Body of Christ, let's join …

3 R’s in God’s Kingdom

Do you remember that when you were a child in elementary school, your teacher taught you the 3 Rs? They were reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic. Well, did you know that God has 3 Rs He wants to teach you? They are realize, remember, and raise. Realize that as God's child, He will always be with …

America, Let’s Honor God and One Another!

The current climate of division, dissension, and disrespect in America sends a message to the world that we are vulnerable because we are focused on internal strife.  Vile words and deeds also send a wrong message to our children.  As adults, we are responsible for leading and teaching them by precept and example.  They are …

Let the Truth about the Celebration of Halloween Set You Free!

Celebrating Halloween is not innocent fun, is not of God but of the devil! DID YOU KNOW? The Druids hallowed out and carved a face on a large turnip representing the demonic spirit they depended upon for their power and knowledge.  Inside the turnip a lighted candle served as a lantern as they went from …

A Spiritual Call to Action!

I was sickened, horrified, and stunned when I heard of the killing of another innocent victim, Atatiana Jefferson, as she played video games at home with her nephew.  My heart aches that a youngster witnessed a close loved one's death.  I imagine that any human being with a heart that still beats felt similarly . …

LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO!

Saying you are a Christian indicates the following: 1)  your spiritual relationship  - you established a relationship with God through His Son Jesus; you are saved; you are a Christian. 2) your spiritual position--you have been delivered from the Kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light. Saying you are a Christian does not indicate …

It’s Time to Make a Choice!

I'm writing this post because like God, I desire that no one would perish but that all will come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. As I look around, I'm concerned because I see the world growing darker day by day with sin and lawlessness increasing everywhere. Therefore, I want to share some life-changing …

God loves you and has a plan for your life!

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Do you remember singing “yes, Jesus loves me” as a child in Sunday School? Whether you answered yes or no, I want to assure you that God has …

Why Were You Born?

Some words from a popular movie theme song were “Do you know where you are going to…do you know?” To know where you are going, you must know your purpose. Purpose is the reason something or someone exists. The purpose of a car is transportation, a paperclip is to hold papers together, and dishes to …

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Would you not agree that 2020 has been a year of upheaval in everyone's lives from one degree to another? The COVID-19 season has turned the entire world upside down. Whatever your particular normal was, it is changing forever. I would venture to say that most people have experienced some type of loss. Think about …

Fear Not!

Written by Guest Blogger -Lisa Sexton, Founder and Executive Dir., All Things Possible Medical Fundraising http://www.allthingspossible.org I’ve been hearing a lot about fear lately. It’s mainly from people who know of Jesus but don’t really know Him. Fear is not of the Lord; it’s a weapon used by satan to tear us down. Fear is …

Post Resurrection Reminders

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, has risen from the grave!  Not long after, He appears to His disciples who were shut-in behind closed doors in fear of the Jews. He reminds them as found in John 20:19-23, “peace be unto you…as my Father hath sent me, even so I send you...receive ye the Holy …

A Week to Remember

Have you ever had a week that started out good but went from bad, to worse, to horrific, to devastating, and then back to good? This is what Jesus experienced the week before His death on the cross. Christians call the week leading up to Easter/Resurrection Day, Holy Week or Passion Week. I call it …

God is Jehovah Nissi!

In Exodus 17 Joshua totally destroyed the Amalekites.  God instructed him to record this victory because He would perpetually defeat them in battle.  So in verse 15, Moses built an altar and called it, Jehovah Nissi.  This name means the Lord is our Banner.  Whenever the enemy comes against us mightily, God’s banner over us …
