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…

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…

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- 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

If God Is Real, Why Is There So Much Death In The World? 

11 Mar

1 John 5:19, “We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.”

Many individuals with a casual understanding of YAH, continually ask this question. It is only from reading and understanding the scriptures, one can come to a correct understanding of why? And the answer is very simple, we still live in a fallen world influenced by Satan. Salvation is offered to all through Jesus Christ, however many reject this salvation and remain under the sway of Satan. Thus allowing the struggle between good and evil to continue.

This sway or sin nature not only affects mankind in our thoughts and actions but also our health, physical world, and natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes. One can reach this conclusion by knowing that through sin death entered the world (Romans 5: 12-19). Poor health or being caught in a natural disaster can result in an untimely death for believers and none believers alike. This is due to us all living in a sinful fallen world that will not be restored until Jesus Christ returns 1 Corinthians 15:26, “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”

This is why the Bible asks for all to put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-20) to protect us from every evil. While under the blood of Christ we are cleansed of sin, death still exists for everyone until His return. We all will pass from this world through death as a result of the sin still inhabiting it; but those in Him will live again as stated in John 11:25, “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world,” Shalom…

Falling Away From Christ…

25 Jan


1 Timothy 4:1, “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.”


One of the most disheartening things to see is when a believer falls away from the Faith. Though the Bible states such things will happen in the latter times, we as Disciples of Christ need to be diligent in strengthening those we know in the Faith. 

This strength needs to be rooted in sound doctrine, and Faith in YAH that all things are working together in our favor. Sound doctrine allows our Spirit to look beyond the bad, and see YAH working. This doctrine laid out in the scriptures says that trying times will always be a part of believing in Christ.


Acts 9:16, states “for I will show him how much he must suffer for My name’s sake.” As well as in Philippians 1:29, “For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake.” 
It is important to teach this message to our loved ones in Christ, so that when they do come they can remain strong in their Faith.

For every adversity that comes our way, YAH will make a way for all of us. Psalm 9:9-10, “The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” Shalom.
