It’s Time to Change Our Cry

Read More

At the beginning of the year, I wrote a post about Bartimeus and how he changed his cry from tangible desires to a need for deliverance. This stayed with me for several weeks until the Lord gave me a sermon to write on the same subject.

If you change your cry, Jesus will change your life. The truth is that we got it all wrong. We are crying out for these things because we believe it will greatly improve our quality of life. Things only last for period of time. Even if it lasts a lifetime, when you die it won’t go with you. A true life changing experience that lasts a lifetime on this earth and beyond, only comes form a relationship with Jesus Christ.

After Bartimeus gained his vision by his faith in the Messiah, he got rid of his cloak, his uniform and began following Jesus. He didn’t have to beg anymore because he had a relationship with Christ.

Smoke Free Blessing

Read More

The aim of “Smoke Free Blessing” is to encourage believers in that, as we endure the fires of life circumstances, God is with us and He is why we do not and should not carry the residue of what we’ve been through.

We know fire is dangerous; but the greatest risk to our minds, our bodies and our possessions — is smoke.

GPS: God’s Positioning System

Read More

There are many of us who are traveling down the road of life and, due to our erratic positioning, we don’t know whether we’re coming or going. Some of us have an idea of where we want to be, but have no idea how to get there. Others are simply lost with no direction or guidance.

The purpose of this message is to encourage believers who may feel lost in their (spiritual and natural) walk of life and/or struggling with their next move.

By illustrating the Word of God as the only way to discover our true position in life, we learn how to navigate through our paths with victory.

Dying of Thirst

Read More

Dying of Thirst is a message encouraging believers not to quench their thirst with the temporal things of the world; but to thirst for God and the living waters of Jesus Christ, who is the Only One who can save us from spiritual dehydration and fill us with the waters of eternal life.

We live in a society where we aren’t being killed, shot and hung for being Christians; yet, we are we suffering from spiritual dehydration. It’s making us confused and it’s effecting our decision-making. We’re tired and some of us are to the point where the enemy has convinced us we don’t need to move.

If you stay spiritually dehydrated, you’ll eventually become fatigued and therefore it’s hard to fight the good fight of faith when you’re tired. When you’re spiritually dehydrated for an extended amount of time, the enemy has you on auto-pilot. You won’t have a desire to quench your thirst; you won’t have the energy to care. And it is at that point of spiritual dehydration, when your spirit begins to shut down, shrivel up and die.

He wants us to stay thirsty, shrivel up and die but you don’t have to die of thirst because God is our living water.

Sticks and Stones

The purpose of this message is to encourage those who are battling a giant in their lives by deconstructing/changing the perception of our adversary; while reaffirming that the promise of God, the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit guarantees victory over any and every challenge we encounter.

The giant is going to die.

It doesn’t matter if you grew up going to church every Sunday or if you have never set foot in a sanctuary chances are you have at least heard of the story of David and Goliath. It is the classic tale of “little guy vs. big guy”with the little guy winning in the end. This is where our culture gets its love of “rooting for the underdog” – where a small-sized boy can face and triumph over a bigger, badder and more ferocious giant.

Faith Rules Everything Around Me

Read More

Our confidence comes from God and knowing that He’s got our back, front, sides, top and bottom. Our faith in Jesus Christ is the reason why we are not influenced by what we see, but we are moved by what we believe. We walk by faith; in other words, we LIVE, FUNCTION and CONDUCT OURSELVES by faith.

Therefore faith rules everything around me.

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17 KJV)

If faith is the fuel by which we live, we have unlimited supply through the Word of God! This is incredible because the Word of God has a single source. The Word of God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. The Word of God always has my best interest. The Word of God stands regardless of how I feel. The Word of God cannot be modified to fit my situation BUT the Word of God can give me the faith I need to change me in the face of my situation.

I can speak, declare, decree, claim, name, whatever I want into the universe and it means nothing if it is not according to God’s purpose for my life.

There is no guarantee that it will come to pass. But I know if I speak what thus sayeth the LORD, if I have faith in His Word and my will is lined up with His Will…it HAS to come to pass and whatever comes my way – prosperity or poverty, healing or sickness, friends or enemies I have the faith in God that it has no choice but to work for my good!
As we walk this walk by faith, we have an assurance – as saved, born-again Christians – that eternal life awaits us on the other side of this life. We can’t see the mansion. We can’t see the golden paved streets. We can’t see the new body. We can’t see the robe. These mortal eyes couldn’t handle it. But in faith we have the hope of glory to see and experience that eternal reward on the other side. By faith, we walk knowing that death is not the end of life, but merely a transition to a newer, better, everlasting life in the presence of the Father.
The world says that “seeing is believing” – but the world has got it twisted. Brothers and sisters, to walk by faith and not by sight is to live based on evidence that is not seen. Habakkuk says:

“Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.” (Habakkuk 2:4 NKJV)

God desires to have a people who will trust Him no matter what they see and no matter what circumstance they find themselves in. What that means is this is not something you do on a case-by-case basis. Faith is not something you do out of convenience or physical evidence, it is something that you live according to the Word of God.

You’ve seen your gas gauge read “E” but by faith you kept going. You saw that short stack of money and that tall stack of bills, but by faith God made a way. You saw the doctor’s report say cancer, but by faith there’s no sign of it. You saw the job description and knew you weren’t the most qualified, but by faith – you go to that job everyday. You saw where you couldn’t have children, but by faith you’re picking up your child from daycare. You saw a storm take everything you had, but by faith your new house is bigger than the old one. You saw the bars of that cage close behind you, but by faith you are free today. On today it’s (still) not about what you can see but it’s all about who you believe and by faith we live because Jesus Christ died and rose again!

Continue to walk by faith and not by sight. Keep your life focused on the Word of God. We won’t be there, but praise God because our life was lead by faith in Him – we will see Christ for ourselves in heaven. We will be with the One who saved us. So let’s keep walking and don’t let anything turn us around. For we walk by faith and not by sight.

Lord knows I needed a revival and my church’s Fall Revival was exactly what I needed to reaffirm the promises of God and the work I need to do. Our revival featured my brother-in-ministry, Pastor Daniel Iman Johnson of First Baptist Church Cropwell. This young man is awesome. How awesome? I edited and posted his revival sermons on my YouTube channel.

MOVE

Read More

This is a message of encouragement for us to MOVE in our purpose in order to improve our quality of life and the lives of those around us. The scripture (John 5:1-11) explores Jesus healing the lame man at Bethesda pool and illustrates how modern day sick people are in need of a transformation. Jesus provides that healing and change in the form of a question, “Would you like to get well?” followed by the command for the lame man to stand up, pick up his mat and walk. The miracle is in the movement and we must MOVE in order to get the healing we seek.
