Words from Pastor's Desk

It is written - May HIS Joy remain in you and your joy be full (John ). His Blessings consist of protection, provision and HIS Presence.  GOD blesses HIS people and wants them to prosper.  True Prosperity in Life occurs when you plant yourself in The Kingdom.  Prosperity’s meaning is all goes well and to succeed in all of one’s endeavors.  Scriptures give reference to HIS people, who maintain a relationship with HIM, as trees that symbolize permanence, strength, & fruitfulness. True Prosperity exists by Walking in Truth, faithfulness, diligence, tithing, sowing, believing, and speaking according to all that is written. After all, in HIS Presence there is fullness of joy which is continually full of all going well, and fully succeeding in all you do. 

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.
