Consolation In The Cross Of Jesus Christ….

23 Sep

2 Corinthians 1:5, “For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.”

The suffering of Jesus Christ abounds in every Believer in the form of grace and mercy. This special gift given to us by Christ sacrifice, we carry with us each and everyday. A living testament of what YAH wants for all His children, operating by way of His Holy Spirit! YAH will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4). This desire will manifest in the form of hope, wisdom, health, purpose and prosperity according to His divine will.

It is a honor to share this consolation with others who do not know Jesus Christ as well. This perfect peace of being spirit filled with love grace and mercy, operating at a divine level bringing His kingdom here to Earth. I pray we all continue to provide this comfort to the unsaved world offering hope instead of despair, Shalom…

Scripture Study: 1 John 3:9, “Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.“

5 Sep

1 John 3:9 does not speak of believers being sinless, but of our sins now being covered by the blood of Jesus. Many think that once we are born again all desire to do wrong goes away which is not true. This scripture speaks to the power of Jesus Christ sacrifice and it’s ability to make us sinless, even while we may still from time to time.


This grace gives us the ability to live for Him to the best of our human ability, until His return. Not giving us clemency to sin, but grace for when we do to keep us in good standing with the Most High. So do not be deterred when we may sin remember Deuteronomy  31:6, “

 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you,” Shalom.

A Born Again Experience…

23 Aug

Acts 9:3-4, “As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

A born again experience is described as when YAH makes himself known to those He has called to a divine purpose. That experience may come in a physical manifestation as recorded in Acts 9:3-4 or in another more subtle way as in just hearing the Gospel message from a friend. The born again experience is a divine calling whether for a grand purpose as leading a revival in your community or a larger stage, while others are to meet the needs of their family and peers among them.

This experience is life changing, being awakened from the sin nature and into the revelation of Jesus Christ, the need to turn away from sin and be a conduit of YAH here in the nature world. Being born again is a divine calling for the Holy Spirit to work through us to gather more unto the Most High, so that they too can receive their born again experience. Once awakened, we need to stay vigilant as to not fall asleep once again making the cross to no effect (1 Corinthians 1:17).

I pray we use this gift from YAH to spread the message of Christ and the need for repentance, some others can receive their born again experience, Shalom…

Scripture Study- Psalm 139:7, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?”

10 Aug

Psalm 139:7 has a two-part meaning about YAH. The first deals with the natural world, where the invisible God is ever present when have eyes to see. First we can see YAH in nature (Genesis 1:11-12) having created the birds, flowers and tress, the rising and setting of sun and moon (Amos 5:8). As being created in His image we also create everyday, for example construction workers building roads imitating His image (Hebrews 11:3).

The second part refers to our sin nature, and no matter how far we have fallen He is there to pick us back up Romans 8:38-39, For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Shalom

Strength In Our Pain

22 Jul

2 Corinthians 12: 7-10, “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. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.


I believe the pain we endure here in the natural realm is fuel for our spirit. YAH used the “thorn in the flesh” of Paul to power his spiritual growth which helped bring the Gospel to the Gentile nation. This pain edified and built Paul’s resiliency  making him a great Apostle, enduring prison and other hardships.

The same can be applied to us, the hurt we endured in our old life is a powerful tool to reform and transform our new self. When we are made “new” by way of the Christ (2 Corinthians 5) we still have to make amends with the pain of our past. We then, can use this pain to move us closer to Christ and the life YAH has ordained for us.


It’s a great thing to be able to look back and see just how far we have come, and gain motivation to not go back.  I pray we all use our pain to empower us for purpose, healing, and to empower others on their spiritual walk with Christ, Shalom…

Scripture Study- The Bible, The Living Word Of YAH! 

10 Jul

Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

The Word of YAH, The Holy Bible is not merely words on a page but truly transformative! The term living means truly alive. The Word of YAH created the natural world as recorded in Psalm 33:6, “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.” The Scriptures are so much more than words on paper, but words of the living God.

Dictated to man and recorded, when we read the scriptures it’s powerful as stated in the first verse of Hebrews 4:12. It can create, revive (John 11:43) and most importantly save (Romans 10:13). Daily scripture reading empowers the Spirit and unlocks creative thinking, talent, purpose, healing and knowledge of who we are in Jesus Christ, Shalom.

Scripture Study- The Son of Man

26 Jun

Matthew 25:31, “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.” 

Son of Man is a title Jesus used to define His calling unto the world. This calling is that of his deity, humanity and fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecy as referenced in the below scriptures.

His deity, Mathew 26:64, “Jesus said to him, “It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.”

John 5:27, “and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.”

His humanity, 1 John 4:2 “By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God.”

His fulfillment of the Biblical prophecy, Daniel 7:13-14, “ “I was watching in the night visions, And behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, And they brought Him near before Him. Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall not pass away, And His kingdom the one Which shall not be destroyed.

The Son of Man title, represents Jesus importance to salvation, reconciliation, prophetic fulfillment and YAH’s standard for mankind to live by Shalom…

We Are So Much More, In The Eyes Of YAH! 

20 Jun

1 Corinthians 2:9, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of manThe things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

We can only imagine what life would have been like before Adam sinned, and expulsion from Eden. What great plan did YAH have in mind for His creation? How much of that great plan can be given back to us in Jesus Christ?Life has a way of deceiving us into believing we are less than and do not matter. YAH has always had great big plans in store for us who shun sin, to do His will (Ephesians 3:20). The entirety of the Bible is of man falling short and YAH reaching out to validate us as righteous, in Christ Jesus. Which confirms our calling and election (2 Peter 1:3-9).
In Christ we are restored to the original plan from the Most High, originally blessed from the beginning of creation. Genesis 5:2, 

 He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.” Can you see who you truly are in Him? I pray we all can, Shalom.

Satan’s Godless Society…

12 Jun

2 Timothy 3:1-5, ”But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

What type of social climate will cause many to accept the Anti-Christ, a godless one. As we approach the end times we will see more and more of people’s Faith starting to wane. Whether this belief is in Jesus Christ, Justice or in the good of people it will fail them. Satan the adversary is coming for all believers and non believers, as He will portray himself as a Savior to all. 

This is why many individuals are losing hope in elected officials, law enforcement and pastors. For the love of money, all are turning away from the people they serve, and to promote other agendas. Why the police force has been demonized and attacked so that we lose faith in their ability to protect us. Gun laws are becoming more restrictive, so we will even begin to question can we even protect ourselves?

This Faithless society will be perfect for a charismatic leader to come and lead many astray. Promoting himself and the satanic “Do as thou Wilt” mentality. Free of any consequences for your actions or angering a God, the Bible warns us to be aware of these times in (Luke 21:6). 

The best way, the only way is to stay in your Bible everyday! Pray to YAH for discernment, strength and edification for yourself and others. Never lose faith in our elected officials ,police and their ability to do the work they were elected to do (1 Tim 2:1-4). We as Believers need to counter a Godless society with a faith based one with Christ at its center, Shalom…

Scripture Study- Mark 8:35 

5 Jun

“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.”

In Mark 8:35 Christ simplifies the Gospel in one short statement. When Christ said, “whoever desires to save their life will lose it,” references those who look to other means other than the Cross for salvation in the end will lose. This means man made philosophy, religions, people, and good deeds are all meaningless. 

The Most High provided the only atonement for sin in Christ  (Acts 4:12) based on his divine law. The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) and all have sinned (Romans 3:23). Therefore the sacrifice Christ made and us accepting him as our Savior can be our only means for redemption in the eyes of YAH. 

In the latter part of the scripture Jesus states, “whoever loses their life for My sake and the Gospel will save it” means to deny your own will  for His, to spread the Gospel. This good news of the Gospel is the saving grace for everyone, in knowing that we can once again be made whole. In Jesus Christ their is restoration, forgiveness, purpose, love, edification, knowledge of truth, and most importantly life, Shalom
