Salvation

They that call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.

Salvation is the free gift of God, given to all who will receive. Salvation is not just a ticket to escape hell, but it has many benefits. You may need to see God’s salvation in the area of your: body, marriage, finance, freedom from addiction or bondage. Salvation consist of everything Jesus purchased on the cross at Calvary. Everything covered in Isaiah 53 is obtained through salvation. Therefore, as you confess with your mouth and believed in your heart to receive Jesus, into your life as your personal Lord and Savior; you will have to confess with your mouth and believe in your heart for salvation to come to any area of need.

When is the day of salvation? Today, is the day of SALVATION!

Just to make it practical here are a few examples:

Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for salvation; I receive the finished work of Christ. Therefore, I receive salvation in the area of my health. Your word declare that you were wounded for my transgressions and bruised for my iniquities and the chastisement of my peace was upon you and with your stripes I am healed. I confess with my mouth and I believe in my heart that I am healed therefore, my mind and body agree with your truth and it manifest as evidence in my life. Thank you, that you are the Lord God that healeth. Thank you, for a cheerful mind that worketh all healings, and a merry heart doeth good like medicine. Be it unto me according to your word.

In Jesus name, I pray……Amen!

Father,

Thank you, that you have given me everything pertaining to life and godliness. Therefore, thank you, that you daily load me with benefits, thank you, that wealth and riches are in my house. Thank you, that the blessing of the Lord maketh rich and adds no sorrow with it. Thank you, for supplying all my needs according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Thank you, that your word declares that you will make all grace abound towards me in every good work. Thank you, that your Word is sure and because I have given, you  will give unto me pressed down shaken together and running over that man shall given unto my bosom. Thank you, because I have honored your principles of giving you have rebuked the devourer for my sake.

In Jesus name,

Amen

Father,

In the name of Jesus, thank you for the truth of your word that declares for me and my house we will serve the Lord, therefore, I call forth my unsaved love ones out of darkness that they may be translated into the kingdom of your Dear SON, thank you that you have called them from afar. No one can come to you accept you draw that, now Father woo them with your loving kindness, give them encounter with you as you did with the woman at the well,  as you did when you visited Saul on the road of Damascus, or when you called (by setting up his encounter with Philip) Nathanael. Encounters with you that can not be refuted, but bring about conversion. Thank you, that you have came to seek and save the lost, and my love one is in that number.

Thank you Lord, for salvation coming to my household, my family, my love ones and friends.

In Jesus name.

Amen

These are just a few examples to get you rolling.

Before there was twitter

And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
And he saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.
Matthew 4:18-19

The concept of twitter is not new; which bear to the testament that there is nothing new under the sun. The concept originated with Jesus. Jesus was the first one to say, “Follow Me”. This is the whole mission of the gospel. Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee and seen the two brothers, which by trade were fishers. Jesus requested that they follow him and that he would use their skill set of catching fishes and use it to become fisher of men. These were not the only fishermen Jesus collected before venturing out to call a tax collector and many others to complete His team of twelve.
Jesus was not seeking followers just to have an entourage or see how many followers he can garner, or use it as a statistical report to rate his popularity but, rather he had a mission and a purpose. However, what Jesus and some twitters have in common is: PROMOTION.
Jesus was promoting salvation, healing, deliverance, and wholeness.
Jesus was seeking followers that he may disciple them, through teaching and by walking with them; they had on the job training. The job training was setting them up to fulfill the commission. The commission was for them to go out and duplicate what He had taught and shown them during training, there mission was to spread the gospel, lay hands on the sick, and cast out demons.

The purpose of the disciples following Jesus was that they may follow-to-lead. Come to think of it follow the leader is ancient too. They were called to follow Jesus and in return commissioned to lead people back to the one whom they followed.
Which was/is the commission then and now, we as believers is called to follow, promote and lead people back to Jesus. There is no other purpose for the gospel. We are modern day disciple who has been given the same task as the original team. Their commission is our commission. They had the Word in flesh; we have the written Word and His indwelling Spirit.

After His Resurrection and before ascending to heaven until His second coming, He departed leaving His disciples (through out all generations) with these final saying, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Matthew 28:18-20

My Pastor has this saying, “The last thing God asked us to do. Will be the first thing he’ll require of you”; whenever he is referencing this scripture verse. Jesus departing words was that we witness. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.
Like the woman at the well who encountered Jesus, dropped her water pot and went into the city and said, “Come and see a man who told me all things that I ever did…”
John 4:28-30
She had been redeemed and she was saying so. Due to her witness many came to see the man Jesus, she had spoke of. They went on her account but when they got there they seen and heard. Then they testimony was “…. now we believe, not because of thy sayings; for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.” John 4:42

The Power of your testimony!

Just think about how many people would come to Jesus on the account of your witness and then get a first hand encounter; that they too may say what the men of Samaria declared.

Background
I am amazed as to how God talks. He brought this idea to mind with a question while I was on my way to sleep. He said, “you know the concept of twitter started with me, right’? Then I responded with well before anything was created you were, then He said, I was the first to say, “Follow me” when I called the disciples; and referred me to the above scripture. I leaped out of bed to grab my bible and began to read.
Then I began to ponder on the various ways that the platform is being utilized.

How are you following? Are you following to lead?
If you have a twitter account what are some of the ways or how are you leading your followers to Jesus?

While His Body Laid In The Tomb

                                    The Transference of:

(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

I AM On Full

As I have been going about this week, I have had this keen sense of awareness of the Presence of God, my heart is full, I guess just the atmosphere of the cross emanating love, liberty and wholeness conjures up songs in my spirit to bring my time of reflection alive, birthing admiration and appreciation for the “PRICE” that has been paid. I was washing dishes and Chris Tomlin’s, Jesus Messiah began to play in my head and the first verse is so potent that it provoked me to worship. The lyrics states, “He became sin who knew no sin that we might become His righteousness.” I mourn for what He (Jesus) had to endure; for He was a man without sin, but to think that for me He became sin. To exchange His life for mines, calls to mind that the life I live have value. My heart overflows, with gratitude.

Lord, I thank….You. Thank You, that you were obedient even to the point of death, to demonstrate the Love of God for man.
You came that we might have life and in you there is life.
In you there is freedom
In you there is Peace
In You there is Joy
In You there is Deliverance
In You there is Redemption
In You there is…….Salvation
Thank You for the price you paid.
Thank You for the life you gave.
Thank You that you raised with all power in your hands
and you looked at man and said,” The Power Invested In Me; I give unto thee.”

May we live in the fellowship of your suffering but may we reflect your Resurrection Power.

May we live in obedience?

May we share the free gift?

May yourMISSIONthat none will be lost, be the purpose of every believer’sheart?

May man see their need of a Savior, may they humble themselves in reverence and acceptance.

May the John the Baptist of this day arise and cry as a voice in the Wilderness….Repent; Repent for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.

May there be urgency in the land to do the work of an evangelist; spreading the Good News that you gives life from the dead.

May man forsake their wicked ways and may the saints not take for granted your grace.

 May our hearts live in a continual state of Rememberance

With Out the shedding of blood

I couldn’t think of a better time to return. I apologize for not living up to the name of this blog (daily devotionals). Nevertheless, Resurrection Sunday is upon us. This is the time that really brings home the purpose of Christ birth; I know we celebrate Christmas, but think the whole purpose of Christmas was to bring Him to the point of Good Friday, where He was wounded, bruised and chastised all for the sake of LOVE and redemption.

For without the shedding of blood there will be no remission of sin. From Christmas- to- the Cross, but, praise God that the story did not conclude there….cause on the THIRD day He arose with all…POWER!!!!

In this week of reflection I will endeavor to come to you with inspiration, magnifying the final days of Jesus life and celebrating His RESURRECTION and what that means for you and me.

 

Jesus Mission

Jesus came to seek and save the lost and by giving His life for ransom, He redeems man from the fallen state of sin and reconciles us back unto a loving Father.

Jesus is the bridge in which we must cross in order to come into relationship with a Holy God. There is no other way in which man can be SAVED. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and….light!

Jesus is the door that mankind must enter into and Easter is the path way that has made it our reality. If any man comes to the Father he must come by way of me (Jesus).

 

Take time to reflect, meditate and celebrate the fact that you are loved to the point of Someone ( Example of love in deed and not word) exchanging their life for yours.

 

For God so loved the world, that He gave His ONLY begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

The Power Of Prayer

Father in the name of Jesus,

Thank you for your perfect soundness. In spirit, soul and body; thank you for the glory of your name being manifested in my will. I present my body unto you as a living sacrifice. It’s no longer I that live but Christ that lives within, I no longer live according to my own way and counsel, so Lord I thank you for the mind of Christ. That the mind that was in Christ Jesus is also in me, that I may not be conformed to this world but transformed in the renewal of my mind. Father I thank you for your word, for it is a lamp unto my feet and light unto my path. Thank you that you lead me in the path of righteousness for your name sake. Father thank you for the precious blood that Jesus shed on Calvary, to redeem me and to destroy every curse. I therefore walk in the liberty in which Christ has made me free. I am the redeemed of the Lord and I am a new creature in Christ. The life that I live I live hidden in him, I yield my members unto you as instruments of righteousness and I submit my will unto you, Lord, not my will but your will be done.

Lord glorify me that I may glorify you. Lord live in me and through me. Thank you for your loving kindness and your tender mercies that are new every morning, thank you for your compassion that faileth not. Thank you for the newness with the rising of each day. Thank your for your anointing that destroys every yoke and bondage. Thank you that for whom the Son set free is free indeed. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I am more than a conquer. I am a winner and not a loser. I am on the winning team. Today is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad. I plead the blood of Jesus upon my life, my family, my finances, my job/business, my goings and comings, my thoughts, my ways and my will. I thank you for the blood that does not lose its power. The blood that heals, delivers, restores, redeems and rescue. I thank you for the blood and I plead it upon the post of my life. I seal this prayer in the blood of Jesus.
Amen.
