THE WAY TO RECEIVE GOD’S BLESSINGS

February 25, 2019

Come close to God, and God will come close to you. James‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

When you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too. Mark‬ ‭11:25‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Have faith in God! You can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. (See Mark‬ ‭11:22-24‬)

Keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Hebrews‬ ‭6:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I AM PREDESTINED

February 19, 2019

Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny. Ecclesiastes‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

So God will do to me whatever He has planned. He controls my destiny. Job‬ ‭23:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

For God knew His people in advance, and He chose them to become like his Son. Romans‬ ‭8:29‬ ‭NLT‬‬

We were claimed by God as His own], having been predestined (chosen, appointed beforehand) according to the purpose of Him who works everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His will. EPHESIANS‬ ‭1:11‬ ‭AMP‬‬

In other words,

God chose us in advance, and He makes everything work out according to His plan. Ephesians‬ ‭1:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Yes,

God decided in advance to adopt me into His own family by bringing me to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure. (See Ephesians‬ ‭1:5‬)

WHEN YOUR IDENTITY IS IN CHRIST

February 18, 2019

The Bible says,

Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. 1. Peter‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This means that when your identity is in Jesus Christ, you’re not impressed with yourself and you do not compare yourself with others. (See Galatians 4:6)

And, you won’t have the need to grade yourself and compete with others. (See 2. Corinthians 10:12)

You don’t brag about yourself, but you let others praise you. (See Proverbs‬ ‭27:2‬)

Those who have their identity in Jesus know that God has chosen them and that they are special to Him, royal priests and holy. They know God brought them out of the darkness into His marvelous light. Now they tell others about all the wonderful things He has done! (See 1. Peter‬ ‭2:9‬)

WHEN GOD SAYS IT, IT WILL ALWAYS HAPPEN

February 14, 2019

Yes, He always does what He says. For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding Yes! 2. Corinthians‬ ‭1:19-20‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Why?

Because it is impossible for God to lie. ‬‬Hebrews‬ ‭6:18‬ ‭NLT

Therefore,

If we ask anything according to His will, [that is, consistent with His plan and purpose] He hears us. And if we know [for a fact, as indeed we do] that He hears and listens to us in whatever we ask, we [also] know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted to us] the requests which we have asked from Him. 1. JOHN‬ ‭5:14-15‬ ‭AMP‬‬

THIS IS HOW YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN A CULTIC CHURCH

You know you are in a cultic church when the people happily put up with whatever the pastor or leaders tells them, even if they preach a different Jesus, or a different kind of Spirit, or a different kind of gospel. (See 2. Corinthians 11:4)

You know you are in a cultic church when the people put up with it when the pastor or leaders enslave them, take everything from them, take advantage of them, take control of everything, and slaps them in the face. (See 2. Corinthians 11:20)

But when you are in a godly church, the pastor or leaders takes care of the flock that God has entrusted to them. They watch over the people willingly, not grudgingly, not for what they will get out of it, but because they are eager to serve God. They don’t lord it over the people assigned to their care, but they lead them by their own good example. (See 1. Peter 5:2-3)

SPIRITUAL WARFARE VICTORY SPEECH

February 7, 2019

Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. ‬‬1. Peter‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭NLT

Jesus said,

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. John‬ ‭16:33‬ ‭NLT

Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. Luke‬ ‭10:19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

How so?

Because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. I. John‬ ‭4:4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Jesus Christ,

The Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. 1. John‬ ‭3:8‬ NLT

Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.James‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Remember,

If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Romans‬ ‭8:31‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Yes, and the Lord will deliver you from every evil attack and bring you safely into His heavenly Kingdom. (See 2. Timothy‬ ‭4:18‬)

A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all [...]
