Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!! "Though He slay me yet will I praise Him" I may be in the valley right now but God is with me every step of the way. His rod and staff comfort me and He lets me know everything is going to be alright. Sometimes you have to look back at who God has been in your life and where He has brought you from. Thinking on that is when God led me to the following scripture and post.

   Obadiah 3+4                 3) "The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, who shall bring me down to the ground?" 4)”Though you soar like the Eagle and make your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down; declares the Lord.”

The bible says “Pride goeth before a fall” And for good reason. There are a lot of people, in the body and out, who are going around trusting in anything but God. Their faith is in created things and not the creator. They believe in wealth, to them money is power. They hire body guards and put in expensive security systems and live in tall buildings and they say “I am safe, who can touch me here?” But the bible says in 1st Cor. 10: 12  "So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall"

 There was a time when I counted myself among the “high and the mighty”, there I was, college educated, a professional Registered Nurse. I had made it I thought to myself, I have reached the promised land, “who can stop me?” I thought to myself. To make matters worse I counted myself a Christian, a disciple of Christ. Yes I had a drug problem that I was depending on God to help me with, but for everything else I was set, after all I had my degree, my License, they would surely open up any doors I needed opened and provide finances for whatever material things I would need. I did not need God for these things I believed at the time. I was my own man or so I thought.

God has a way of getting your attention and letting you know who’s in charge. He closed doors no college degree or R.N. license could open. No gift of gab or sparkling personality can get you a job that He does not want you to have. I learned that the hard way but it was a good lesson to learn. The word says “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” it also says “The Earth is the Lords and the fullness there of.”once we learn to let God take control of our lives and trust that He “can do exceedingly and abundantly better than we can ever hope for or ask” we can rest in peace in Him, once I learned that, doors began to open again but not because of me but because it was His will.

Let us stop putting our trust in ourselves and other created things and put our trust in the creator of all things. Now I'm "high" on the Holy Ghost and "mighty" through God, Amen.

Praise the Lord everybody! fore He is worthy to be praised! I pray everybody is enjoying Gods blessing. My wife and I continue to be attacked in our bodies and our finances but we remain steadfast in our faith as we wait and watch what God is doing, and He is moving concerning our relationship with Him. The following is  something God gave me that ties in with my last post "Stay IN JERUSALEM" I pray it blesses you and opens your eyes as it did mine.

              Acts 2:46,47       46) “And they, continuing daily with one accord in the Temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”

There is a reason the Christian church is not growing as fast as Islam or other religions through out the world, and it’s not because there are not enough televangelist, Christian radio stations, missionaries or tent revivals. In some Cities in America there are two and three churches on one block. We have street preachers, subway evangelist and people who just hand out tracts on street corners. Still the Christian church is not growing as fast as other religions, especially in the U.S. There is something missing from the Body of Christ, we have forgotten some of the things that gave the church power, things that spurred the Lord to bless the church and to prosper it.

The above scripture from Acts talks about the church being in and continuing with one accord. The power of being with one accord was demonstrated on the day of Pentecost. Jesus told his disciples they would receive power from on high and when they were gathered together with one accord they received that power and they went on to shake up the world. The reason the Christian Church is no longer shaking up the world is because there is no power in the church anymore, we are no longer acting as one. We are separated by doctrine, race and religious rituals. When was the last time neighborhood churches truly fellow shipped together? When was the last time they went out into the field together to work the harvest together? Instead we look for excuses to put each other down and reasons why we can not possibly be yoked together with “THEM”.

 We can’t even come together with one accord in our own “Church clubs”, I call them church clubs because we treat them like private clubs, members only! We pull up in our fancy cars and step over the locals as we enter into the house of prayer. Once inside we Question Gods authority, the authority God put in place to run His  church and bring forth His vision. There is disobedience, backbiting, gossip and sowing seeds of discord. And Gods work gets lost in the mix.We need to get back to breaking bread together and coming together with one purpose and one purpose only, and that is to serve God and worship him in spirit and in truth. We need to flip the power switch back on so that preachers can preach the full council of God with boldness and without fear. Stop fighting the vision and start embracing your pastors vision because he received it from God. Of course if your pastor goes off track from the word of God point it out to him, other wise follow him as he follows Christ. Reach out to the Churches around you join with them in their labors to bring in the harvest, fellowship, break bread and come together with one accord and watch the power of God Flow.

Praise the Lord! Let everything that has breath praise His holy name! I love the Lord and what He's doing in my life right now. He is bringing me closer to Him, reeling me in like a fish on a hook, bringing back to the relationship we once had back when I first saw the light and the burdens of my heart rolled away. A time when it was all Jesus all the time. I immersed myself in his presence and I wanted to know all about Him.

I am returning to my first love and He has told me to stand still and wait on Him because something is about to happen just like He told the Disciples right before his ascension into heaven written about in Act chapter one.

ACTS 1:3-5(NIV) STATES  3 After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. 4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.

Right now I am waiting in "Jerusalem" my Jerusalem. I'm sure just like it is for me right now Jerusalem was not a comfortable place to be for the Disciples, they were being hunted and persecuted. They were in hiding and meeting in secret and just like them I have been tempted to run away, run away from my calling, my detractors and the haters of Holiness but I like them am going to wait on the promise of God.

The word says "God is not slack concerning His promise..."(2nd Peter 3:9) or His promises for that matter. The promises He made to me concerning ministry and healing as long as I am obedient and stay in my Jerusalem and wait for it are for me. No matter the tricks and fiery darts of the enemy trying to get me to move on I will believe God. The promises of God are yea and Amen according to His word and I'm standing on that. I am tired of "leaving Jerusalem" just before my blessing comes, turning back when it was waiting for me around the next corner.

 We know The Disciples were rewarded for their obedience with the baptism of the Holy spirit. If God told you to "Stay in Jerusalem and wait on what was promised" STAY AND WAIT! Tell yourself "I'm not leaving come what may, through the storm, through the rain, through sickness and through pain, I'm waiting on Him.

Lamentations 3:24-26 states    24 The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

25 The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.

26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.
