Words from Pastor's Desk

What has The Lord answered? What has The Lord spoken?  From the Lord’s Heart, He stated “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night shall not cease.” (Gen 8:22)There is at all times planting that has yet to be done; therefore, take every opportunity to do good and sow.  Sowing into good ground leads to blessings that are increased and multiplied like the days of weather, seasons, and lights. Believers demonstrate their faith when they sow showing their attachment is to GOD and trust in The Word. While laboring and suffering is endured, sowing seed becomes the creation of GOD’s blessings. Seed is HIS. HE has prepared, set, and made a harvest that produces and provides. 

Do something! Work your Faith as a doer of the Word. As you work the work of faith, watch God work a work in you.  Faith must become an active expression by confessing and doing of the Word.  Five principles of faith are: ground your faith in The Word; claim what your faith has embraced from The Word; boldly confess what you believe; act on faith; and, lastly, hold fast to your confessions of faith without wavering.  It is impossible to please God without faith, and the genuineness of faith is much more precious than gold.

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you. (Matthew 6:33)  Believers by faith labor each day for food but not for the same food that the world labors for.   We labor for the food which endures to everlasting life (John 6:27). We incline our ears to hear The Word of the Lord for we know His Word shall always come to pass.  The work for The Kingdom is high and broad and of great importance; therefore, like Nehemiah 6:3, we shall not cease or come down. Having the mind of Christ, His Purpose becomes your purpose.

Situations are just human experiences. The enemy wants believers to keep focus on the situation instead of the future God has promised. Believers don’t allow culture or situations to keep them trapped. Christ has already asked “Do you want to be made well?” Believers rise in faith, take up their faith, and walk by faith and not by the situations of human experiences. Believers can’t wrap themselves up in a situation, because that would be shutting up GOD in their life. GOD’s Seed can’t be dormant; It must rise. 
The Word states whoever is born of GOD does not sin for HIS seed remains in him. (1 John 2:9) Everything starts in seed form. Nothing that GOD does will start out in full maturity. Seed should be planted, invested, and cultivated with the future in mind. GOD wants you to think at a higher level for Kingdom purposes. The greater the elevation, the deeper the level of humility one has. Turn from drama, excel in giving and let your ears hear The Word. Then, it is just a matter of time before the manifestation of the harvest willed to you.
