Jesus Is The Reason for the Season

Jesus Is The Reason for the Season

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace – Isaiah 9:6

This is the season, believers as well as unbelievers celebrate Christmas. The Christian community celebrates Christmas  as the birth of Jesus; although there is no record indicating He was actually born on the 25th of December, but this is the date given for celebration. Religious people have given the day chosen to celebrate  Christmas as a pagan holiday. Paganism is an individual that denies there is one God, but many gods, it’s the worship of all gods, it’s a non-Christian, atheist, agnostic, polytheistic. Whatever day Jesus was born, it’s a day that needs to be celebrated, that is why as Christians, we should celebrate His birthday everyday by praise and worship and submitting ourselves to our Father’s instructions through His written Word to the believer.

To celebrate is to recognize the occasion, observe, consecrate, hallow, commemorate, honor, and to rejoice.  Christians that  are celebrating , is celebrating the birth of Jesus, not a god, but the Son of God who is  God!  A holiday usually is a day of freedom from labor, often one set aside by the law, just as Thanksgiving was established by President George Washington issued a proclamation, naming Thursday, November 26, 1789 a day of Public Thanksgiving. December 26, 1941,  President Roosevelt signed the resolution establishing Thanksgiving to be the fourth Thursday in November,  to be the Federal Thanksgiving Day holiday. So we know, as Thanksgiving was given a date so was Christmas, but as Christians, we know Jesus was born, it doesn’t matter what day He was born or the month. Division comes to hinder the unity of Christians causing non-effective Christians. There is no denomination in the Bible, but yet there are numeral denominations, and we argue about who is a true Christian. A true Christian is one that submits themselves to the instruction of God and not just a religious body.

Christmas is another day that the Lord  made and man made it a holiday, so whatever day we celebrate, its the day the Lord made, not man and it should be hollowed. Satan doesn’t care how he can bring division as long as he can get Christian’s to be divided. We should be concerned about souls being reconciled to God and not about a day that was set aside to celebrate to fight against it and each other because we’re being moved by our emotions and not our spirit.

This Christmas, we should purpose in our hearts to love everyone as Jesus love them, that’s the true gift God would desire for each of us to give to one another. Jesus has been taken out of the Christmas holiday because so many fought against the name of Jesus being present, just as they fought against His name being used in the Bible, the same thing is happening today, and we’re fighting against each other over a day. Jesus is on His way back for His church and we must be rapture ready. Spiritually, its not the day we’re celebrating, but the God of the day!

God’s Word Can Be Trusted

God’s Word Can Be Trusted

As for God, His way is perfect, the word of the Lord is tried. He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him – Psalm 18:30.  In life things and people will come and go. The world is forever changing and so are the people. People you thought would never hurt you, they did. The things you said you would never do, you did, but when it comes to the word of God, it never changes. In order for God’s word to be manifested on our behalf, we’re going to go through things in order for His word to come into manifestation. Tried means to be tested, proved and trustworthy. How many times have we promised God we will be faithful in praying or reading the Bible only to find ourselves not keeping our word?  When God says He’s faithful, we can believe Him. When were not faithful to God, He stays faithful to us. His word says “He will keep them in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him”. No matter how tough the trial maybe, we can trust the word of God that He will bring us through the trial when we place our faith in Him, when we continue to seek His face, is when we find rest in our mind, heart and spirit.  Buckler is a shield, God will shield you from the darts of the enemy. He will protect you when harm comes your way,

In order for God to defeat our enemy, indicates in this life, we will have people that will not like us for whatever reason they tell themselves the reason they don’t like us. The ditch they dig is the  opportunity for God to show Himself strong in our behalf. Don’t think because you’re a Christian everybody is going to love you, and think well of you because they will not. Joseph loved God, but his brother threw him in a hole and God brought him out with the victory. Whatever hole you maybe in, God can bring you out as you allow Him to bring you out the way  He wants to bring you out.

In order to receive of God, we must experience something for His word to be manifested. Know that your life belongs to God, know that He’s in control of your life since you dedicated yourself to Him, and He will never allow anything to come into your life to destroy you when you have placed your life and trust in Him. There is victory in your life because of God and His Word. He exalts His Word above His name! Don’t allow the circumstances of life to beat you down, but bow in your heart and in your mind in prayer and allow God to exalt you and bring you into His glory! Trust His Word, submit to His Word, and allow the Word to bring you victory.

Power In the Name of Jesus

Power In the Name of Jesus

And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple. And he gave heed unto them expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth raise up and walk (Acts 3:2,5,6).

Peter and John were on their way to the the temple to pray, but as they were entering the temple there was a man there asking for alms who had been lame from birth. This man was brought by someone daily to the gate of the temple to ask for alms. When the lame person saw Peter and John, he asked for alms, but rather than receiving money, he received healing. The man and whoever was bringing him there, had more trust in him receiving money than for his healing, if not, rather than bringing him to the gate of the temple they would have brought him to the temple where they were praying.

Peter didn’t ask how long he had been waiting at the temple gate, but he looked at the man’s need, and used what he had received of God to bless the lame man by having faith that when he prayed in the name of Jesus, God would hear the prayer and answer his request. Jesus told the disciples prior to His departure to ask the Father in His name, and it would be granted (And in that day ye shall ask me nothing, verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, He will give it you – John 16:23). In faith, Peter prayed for the man, and the man received healing through the powerful name of Jesus. God honors His Word, and Jesus was the Word that became flesh (In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God – John 1:1, And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called the Word of God – Revelation 19:13). 

Every Christian that has been born of the Spirit of God has the privilege to use the name of Jesus and God will honor the prayer. Jesus instructed His disciples then and now to ask the Father in His name. When we ask in the name of Jesus, then Jesus will take up the prayer and ask the Father on our behalf (At that day, ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you – John 16:26). The Father always hears the prayers of Jesus. Too many times our prayers aren’t answered because we’re having faith in doubt and unbelief. When we go to God, we must have faith that He is hearing and will answer our prayers as we pray according to His will, what is His will?  His will is for the unbeliever to be saved, His will is for the believer to receive the Holy Spirit. His will is for His children to be healthy, soundness of mind. Marriages with joy and not just coping. His will is for His children to be successful naturally and spiritually. So when we pray, we must know what His will is, and as we pray according to His will, our prayers will be answered.

In order to receive salvation, one must believe in the Lord by confession, one is not saved by his mouth’s confession, but the mouth testifies of the grace of God in Christ which has been received by faith (That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation – Romans 10:9-10).  Healing can be brought about by using the name of Jesus. The man that  was lamed from birth was healed by the name of Jesus (Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk – Acts 3:6). That name can be used now just as it was then when a person is lame. The lame can be addiction, sickness, disease, spiritual bondage, confusion, you name it, Jesus name can destroy it or build it .

Ask In Faith

Ask In Faith

Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knock it shall be opened (Mathew 7:7-8). In the Christian community, you will sometimes hear, if you pray more than once for a thing, then you don’t have faith;  this misleading information has made many stop contending with God until they receive an answer. In this scripture, Jesus is telling us to be persistence in our pursuant of God. It’s not like God doesn’t hear our prayers, and it may get discouraging to continue to do right, praying consistently and not see tangible results,  but that’s the time we need to continue to pursue Him. We shall reap the benefits of our prayer, if we faint not. God has instructed us to delight ourselves in Him and as we delight ourselves in Him, He would give us the desires of our heart. To delight in someone means to experience great pleasure and joy in his or her presence, we get into God’s presence by prayer and praise. We are the children of God and just like in the natural when our children ask for something, if the answer is no, they will return and ask again; it should be the same way when we go to our Father in prayer; we pray until we  receive an answer to what we’re praying for.  As born- again Christians, we never ask the Father for something that is contrary to the Word of God, so when we pray and we pray according to God’s Word, we will receive an answer. Jesus said, whatever we ask the Father in His name, that would He do that the Father may be glorified in the Son. When you pray, believe God will hear and answer your prayer, ask in faith.
