Mind of Christ

Mind of Christ

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus  (Philippians 2:5).                                                                                                                                                  Mind – To obey, be under the authority, to do as one is told. To give one’ attention,  to be attentive. Jesus mind was to please the Father, He didn’t come to earth with His own agenda, but came to do the will of the Father. Jesus was our example of how we should be as children of God. Some may say, living as a Christian is hard, but that’s opposite of what the Word of God says, the bible instructs the way of  a transgressor is hard (Good understanding giveth {gains} favor: but the way of a transgressor is hard – Proverbs 13:15).If living as a Christian according to the Bible is hard, it’s only because the individual hasn’t made up their mind and they have a poor understanding of scripture.

Dying to Live

Dying to Live

Some men’s sin are open (clearly evident) before hand, going (preceding) before to judgment; and some men they follow after (later).                            1st Timothy 5:24   Paul was  instructing Timothy not to be hasty installing men into office, but to carefully examine each elder candidate, his true character and fitness for office to be determined. Many times people are placed in offices they should not be in because their spirit nor their character is in line with the Word of God. Leaders are to be  an example  to others as well as those that are professing to be Christians should live a life by precept and example of the Bible. Paul instructed the believer to follow him as he follow Christ. Many are standing in the office of a leader and they are directing people straight to hell because of their opposite teaching of what the Bible has instructed the believers to live.

Pray Before You Faint

Pray Before You Faint

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not (Galatians 6:9). Sometimes it seems as though our prayers aren’t being answered, and it can become discouraging, but know that every time you make an effort to pray, God will be there listening. Faint is to lose faith that God will answer your prayer. No matter how long you have being praying, keep on praying.

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 .

Hell

Hell

I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and  of death (Revelation 1:18) Jesus is the only one that has died and came back to life and communicated with His people. Some have said, their father, mother or a love one that has dead has visited them, but this is not biblical according to the teaching of Jesus, Lazarus came back to life after Jesus raised him from the dead, but other than Jesus and Lazarus, no one else has or will return from the dead to communicate with the living (Luke 16:26, Ecclesiastes 9:5).

Hell is just as real as heaven, if it wasn’t so, it wouldn’t be in the Bible.  The prophet Isaiah mentions that hell has enlarged itself, the Apostle Mark states, it’s a place where the fire never stops and the worms never die, its place where no one desires to go. Hell is place the Bible indicates the fearful, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, whoremongers, sorcerers, idolaters and liars and all those who reject the Word of God will be in the lake that burn with fire and brimstone.

It’s our Christian responsibility to pray for those we know that are living in rebellion and disobedient to the Word of God, they can’t pray for themselves unless they have a repentance heart (John 9:31 – Now we know that God heareth not sinners; but if any man be a worshiper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth). A worshiper is not someone who sings, it’s those who worshiper Him in spirit and in truth.

Every Christian should have a prayer list, a list of people they call out to God for salvation. We have to go before God for those who cannot enter into the presence of God, we are the priest that can enter into God’s presence and petition God for the unsaved for their salvation with sanctification.  As Christians, we should be like our Father, we shouldn’t want to see anyone go to hell, its place where the spirit never dies and the individual is conscience of what’s happening to them. The next time you think you don’t have anything to pray for, think about the souls that are hell bound if salvation with sanctification doesn’t come into their life.
