Do Not Be Ashamed To Preach Christ!

29 May

Romans 1:26, “ For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.”

In today’s society it may seem to be a daunting task to preach the Gospel of Christ. With disbelief rampant and Faith placed more in science than the finished work of Jesus many Believers may feel discouraged in doing so. However we are to teach if applicable to the given situation, 1 Peter 3:15.

Imagine having the greatest news to tell someone that is truly life changing, and keeping it to yourself in fear of rejection. Their is to be confidence in everything we say due to speaking of the power of YAH. Science is only theory to an extent and philosophy is up to interpretation of the individual but the Gospel is truth.

We can never be ashamed of the salvation in Christ and our Faith in YAH, who has transformed us by the words we are sharing with others. In Jesus dying for the sins of the world and granting salvation to all believers from sin and death. The Gospel is headline news everyday and as Believers we need to report, Shalom…

Scripture Study- John 10:28

22 May

“No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

John 10:28 speaks to the power and authority given to Christ by the will of YAH. This same power and authority is given to us as followers as well, that when we go through hardships that obedience is key to overcome. Jesus was ordained to be the blood sacrifice for the sins of the world (Ephesians 1:3-5) and that by being chosen, YAH protected His son even in death to receive glory.

The same can be said for Us as Disciples, we all have a divine calling to align ourselves to YAH to bring about His divine will.  No matter the obstacles or circumstances even unto death, YAH is always in control of the situation which will bring about His glory and our glorification in Him. The power to “Take it again,” proves His sacrifice for our sins was good in the eyes of the Almighty by resurrecting Jesus back to life.

This very important scripture attests to the need to believe and received Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior as stated in John 14:6, Jesus said to Him “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me,” Shalom.

When YAH Says No To Our Prayer…

12 May

2 Corinthians 12: 7-9, “And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

The general consensus among Christians is that YAH always answers prayer. While this is true, it is always in accordance to His will. Many times, our will does not always align with His or in the Lord’s infinite wisdom He chooses not to for our own edification. In the above scripture Paul’s prayer was not answered pertaining to his “thorn in the flesh” with YAH using that to keep him humble during his ministry. 

In Matthew 26:36-56, Jesus prayed to YAH to “let this cup pass from me,” pertaining to the crucifixion but His prayer was not answered, as it was YAH’s will for Jesus to be the offering for the sins of the world. It is important for us all to learn from the trials that we are in. In times of tribulations we need to ask why we are here? What is the lesson to be learned? Will this situation being fixed strengthen me spiritually?

 Once we can answer these questions, we will receive console in either a yes or no answer from The Most High. Know that YAH is a spirit being with infinite wisdom outside of our own understanding. Even if the answer that YAH gives us is no, it is for the betterment for our spiritual walk, Shalom.
