Words from Pastor's Desk

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. 

Believers by faith can’t separate faith and works to get life.  Faith is the driving force for results and is demonstrated by the commitment to what is professed and by acting on it as well.  Believers go forth with sure purpose because there is no forfeiting the full reward that is due.  Every effort is made for the Word to perform the Work that HE is able to complete.  Like Rahab, who received the WORD given by the messengers, accepted deliverance, showed compassion, and continued to follow the command given for a later date.  When the dust settled, she stood and had life; not just her but those of her household.

Faith has to be proven and shown not only in the sight of The Lord but also in the sight of man. Believers by faith make every effort to add to their faith and aim to please God because without faith it is impossible to please HIM.  They continue with praise because they know they receive things for the actions done in the body.  This is why believers stand still when in the midst of challenges. They do not turn to the weak and man-made system of works, but use the force from the power of faith for the unseen work to be revealed from The Divine Source.
