Brothers and sisters, I would like to begin today with a passage from the book of Acts. One of which was written by the Evangelist Luke. The book of Acts serves as a prologue that precedes the gospel of Luke. It entails specific teachings and prophesies of the current day and the power of the Holy Spirit.
It is our responsibility as creations of God to behoove the instruction of the Lord. To be prepared and enlightened to the glory that is available to us. The magnificence and splendor that can only be bestowed upon a person by the King of the Heavens and Earth.
17 In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in the Heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great day of the coming of the Lord. 21 And everyone who calls on me will be saved.
What a breathtaking prognostication. A promise that the present Earth has lived long enough to see. We who have been graced to experience the glory of the laying out of the red carpet, for the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I marvel in the mysteries and miracles of God. A once serial sinner that was saved by grace. To later find out that I have a Holy calling for the Kingdom of God. It is my honor and privilege to serve my King with all of my heart. To have surrendered myself with every facet of my being. In order to share the Good News of the Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I want to be explicitly clear, only by the Mighty hand of God do I live and breathe. Because without his mercy and protection over me, I would be dead.
All people on Earth exist only by the hand of God. However, for those who have overcome hate, hardship, disease, addiction, abuses, sin, and torture. You understand!
There are some of us who have defied death only due to Jesus Christ. One of those people being me.
Only due to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ do we have the glorious opportunity to be freed from a sinful and sorrowful life. To be let loose from the grips of satan and his minions.
Hebrews 2:14 Therefore, since the children share in the flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil.
1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit,
Jesus sacrificed his life on the cross to overcome eternal death. Through the Holy Spirit, the dead can literally be raised to life. It is through His Spirit that our carnal body of flesh and sin can die, be washed clean and reborn. We then take on a new Spiritual body in Christ.
Jesus makes a way a way for us to be cleansed to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Because the Bible is clear that nothing unclean (with sin) will enter.
Revelation 21:27 Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Now, in regards to the present age, God has set aside a people who would be saved and sanctified to be witness to the glory of Jesus Christ. A Remnant of his seed and church, graced to see the glory of his presence. Hearing the sound of his voice in the way of Moses.
Average people from less than average places who are predestined to do miraculous things for the End Day Church of Jesus Christ.
Formed, fashioned, and strengthened through adversity, hardship, and above-average pains and abuses. The world has not been fair to the Remnant. Why? Because the world was not fair to Jesus.
So, in order to be filled with his glory we had to experience His pain. To be tried, tested, and crucified of the flesh. In order be trusted with true Spirit of Christ Himself.
We were sinners to the tenth degree and only because of Jesus Christ are we free. To serve in the functions in which God has commissioned and instructed.
We have been a target for ridicule, revenge, slander, anger, and jealousy. In fact, laughed at, mocked, mimicked, pushed out of “churches.”
Those who claim to be of God but the Lord has said, “they are of the devil’s seed.” The Lord spoke…
“I will reclaim what is mine, what I have entrusted to those who cannot be trusted will now be revoked. To those who have tossed my servants to the side, you too will be handled without care. I Am the cornerstone of my church and so so too are my servants the icing on the cake.”
Beloved, many are completely unaware of the time we are currently in. I myself, am a prime example that there is love, truth, hope, and supernatural healing in Jesus Christ. A true testimony and witness of the power of God.
You can believe that the Lord has a unique way of doing things. God tells us in the book of Isaiah.
Isaiah 55, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither my ways your ways. As the heavens are higher than the Earth, so too are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Our God is a God of love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, mercy, and grace. But Jesus is also a God of order, justice, reproach, and reprimand.
A powerful example of humility with an insatiable desire to see that justice is served.
To those who have lied, stolen, and murdered the innocent. To those who have destroyed his precious children in the womb. There is a reason why I am the one to reveal these utterances to you.
The Lord is clear that He will tear down and destroy those who have lied on the weak and fabricated articles against the strong. To those who have committed no crime and sacrificed for the Lord Most High. His hand will be strong in showing of who is of Him, and who is not.
Remember, Jesus was also falsely accused and sentenced to die for his righteousness. His servants have suffered much in the same way. Jesus took the beating and hung on the cross for us so we wouldn’t have to. This is why God chooses those who the world loves to hate.
Because our merciful King has suffered the same. He marvels in the redemption of His people. Those called by His Name. The people who have loved him at all costs and without measure..
We will see the power of Jesus Christ like never before. There will be an outpouring of Heavenly fire through His people. The Holy temples of God who will proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Ordained by God and not man.
For those who have yet to know the Lord. They who have a form of godliness but do not know the power thereof, now is your chance to receive Him. For nothing will be withheld from those who love and serve the Lord with a sincere and repentant heart.
For those caught up in the political hate and tyranny. For they who are slave to religious rituals and traditions, you too will have the chance to come to your senses. To receive the unmerited love and Grace of Jesus Christ.
The Lord loves everyone and all are welcome to receive Him.
Brothers, and sisters, we are faced with the final curtain call. God has draped this veil before us and now it will be removed. So that many will be saved.
Please, remember that Jesus is the gateway and point of entry into the Kingdom of Heaven.
The one and only mediator to the Father. May you call unto Him now and receive new life in the Spirit. To be reborn in baptism through the Fire and living water.
Jesus is the only way.
Many claim that there are several ways to Heaven, good deeds that outweigh the power of the blood of Jesus.
The deceived who claim that you can buy your way into Heaven with tithes and giving. As if charity has any rights over the power of the body and blood of Jesus Christ.
Beloved, it does NOT!
Yes, we are to care for the sick and feed the poor. However, it is not a ticket into Heaven. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. He is eternal life, and only through His Spirit do we enter into the gates.
The Bible say’s in Ephesian1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,
Acts 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
Now is the time to seek His face with everything you’ve got and repent of your sins. Call on the Name of Jesus and give your life to Him.
Jesus said, “the distance is short. The time is near.”
Beloved, I realize that many have lost their way. Believe me, I too was lost for several years. However, due to the mercy of Jesus Christ I was saved, and shown in the way to go.
So it is my job to teach you the same. To let you know there is no sin to dirty to be washed clean by the blood of Jesus Christ. He is waiting on your call. God Love you!
Now, before I go. I have written this passage called, “The Puzzle,” I know that it is for you.
A puzzle is a picture created by many pieces that uniformly fit together. Each one hand cut to fit a specific space and perform a function. To serve a purpose for which it was created in the picture.
However, oftentimes pieces get lost. They are tossed aside and stay hidden for many years. A puzzle piece may even find itself broken and slightly bent. Leaving a beautiful puzzle going unsolved and incomplete.
However, there comes a time when the pieces are found and straightened out. The pieces are then placed into their destined spaces.
This finalizing the master plan of the puzzles creator.
Brothers and sisters, each one of you is a missing piece to someone’s puzzle. Whether it be a family puzzle, a company puzzle, a government puzzle, a ministry puzzle, or any other puzzle that God has created you to fit.
Beloved, you can believe there is a space that only you can fill. A destined opening that only you can fit. All of God’s creation is formed and fashioned with a purpose in life, and through Jesus Christ, He is the path to find it.
Now, before we go go. Do you remember the Biblical story of Joseph? Joseph was the son of Israel (Jacob.) Joseph had a very important calling from God on his life. He had great favor on His life that came with it much strife.
As the favor of God is a blessing. Often times it can serve as a curse if not viewed in the proper manner. Because truth be told, each facet of favor will be used to glorify God in some way. We may not see it today. In fact, sometimes not for many years.
But you can believe that there is a destined time and place for everything under the “Son.”
Now, Joseph was adored by his “father,” which often times welcomed hatred and jealousy from his family. He was a constant target for ridicule, hate, and poor treatment.
Sadly, Joseph was never accepted by his siblings. From the very start, each of them, had great contempt towards Joseph.
Their distain was so substantial, that his very own blood threw him in a pit and left him to die. They even lied to their parent about his whereabouts.
Joseph was a good man with a kind heart. Yet because of the favor and calling on his life he was hated. He had to suffer many things due to the unfair treatment that he received.
However, Joseph was loved and adored by his Heavenly Father, by God himself.
So much so, that the Lord saved Joseph from many harrowing circumstances. God knew from the beginning that Joseph had a prominent position to fill later in his life. So God’s mighty hand never left him.
Joseph who was looked at like a nobody for the majority of his life, was somebody. He was a very important person to the future of a nation.
He was the “puzzle piece” that fit into a destined picture in Egypt. One of the highest offices in the land. You see, Joseph was destined to be Prince of Egypt. To rule in the Castle and serve with the the King. This is where Joesph’s gift to prophecy and interpret dreams would come into play. Joesph was a mighty leader due to the power of God.
It was God who straightened out Joseph’s kinks after all he had gone through. Cleaned him up and placed him above the rest who belittled him all his life.
Joseph knew he didn’t hold the credentials to fit into a place in Pharaohs castle. But God cut Joseph out before the foundations of the Earth to fit into that space. It was the Lord equipped Joesph through the often times painful experiences He endured..
It was Joseph’s heart that pleased God, much like David who was a sinner destined to be a King.
Both Joseph, and David far exceeded the people’s expectations. It was God that prepared them because of the loving heart He gave them.
The moral to this story, each one of us is the piece to a puzzle. We are hand-cut and carved by God, destined to complete a picture.
One that only each one of us is destined to complete.
The place where we were born to serve.
The Lord has spoke to me…
“Be prepared, child, this is your moment. You will receive the call to the place I have created you to fit.
Those who have submit to My hand and discipline. Those who have allowed me to straighten out your kinks. You will no longer be forced to drive yourself into places too small for you to fit.
Trying to squeeze yourself into circles that you were too large to be in. I will insert you into the place where you are destined to sit. The circle that you have longed to fit in.
The finished puzzle is my masterpiece. There are many who will be forced to watch. They will not be able to look away. You will shine like a star before your enemies.
You have earned the right to be called Son. And I Am proud of who you have become.
Once and for all you will be loved by many. It is by my hand that I will force open their arms to receive you. The picture is soon to be complete.
You have served Me well, and through, you, I will be glorified.”
Oh my word. Glory to GOD!
To be continued!
