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.

Never Let Slander, Destroy Your Bright Future… 

3 Feb

Matt 13:54-55, “When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas?”


Discreditation is one of the most powerful weapons the enemy has. Matthew 13:54-55 gives us an Biblical example, in how those in Christ own town of Nazareth refused his ministry based on his humble beginnings. The enemy caused doubt in Jesus, and gave them a reason to refuse the Gospel of Salvation that will in the end save the world. 


In our own lives, we have similar callings maybe not in the ministry, but to be doctors, lawyers or political figures to better this world for the glory of YAH, but are refuted based on our background. We must always remember that our walk is righteous in Jesus, such as He is righteous (1 John 3:7) and our faith will always overtake our fear of rejection allowing us to achieve greatness in His name.


During these times of trouble remember James 1:2-4, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” Shalom
