Morning Coffee 5/23/19 Unchained Heart

Hello family…

‘“The farmer’s workers went to him and said, ‘Sir, the field where you planted that good seed is full of weeds! Where did they come from?’ “‘An enemy has done this!’ the farmer exclaimed. “‘Should we pull out the weeds?’ they asked. “‘No,’ he replied, ‘you’ll uproot the wheat if you do. Let both grow together until the harvest. Then I will tell the harvesters to sort out the weeds, tie them into bundles, and burn them, and to put the wheat in the barn.’”’ Matthew 13:27-30

I went for a walk in my neighborhood, there is a church on the route that I was walking. I often would stop and have one on one time with God under the big tree that is on the edge of the property. However something had changed. The two entryways into the property were chained off so no cars could get in. Now I could have easily gone around or even stepped over the chain, but any attempts I made to draw near to the property were met with an icy cold feeling of rejection. I couldn’t even bring myself to rest in the grassy drainage ditch in front, as I walked away the holy spirit said to me “that is what the church (body of Christ) is doing to the lost in the world.”

We see someone living a certain lifestyle or not living up to our (keyword our) standards, we instantly start putting together opinions and Judgement based on what we see, instead of looking with the heart and eyes of God, looking past the sin and seeing that persons heart (remember we are all broken with out Christ).

Remember Jesus choose Judas Iscariot, who would ultimately betray Him. Yes we can say that was the purpose of Judas, but that would only be seeing and understanding on the surface level. Read Matthew 10:12-15, that is how we are supposed to treat the lost of this world. Leaving an open door untill God shows us different. ‘Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. ‘ Matthew 11:28 How can the weary come to Christ if we are setting up chains in the gateway of our heart?

Morning Coffee 5/21/19 Constant Renewal

Hello family…

Read Mathew Chapter 10

Christ words are a commission to us. He is calling us to a place where we function not based on our own understanding, but according to his kingdom.

We must constantly renew our mind and continue the process of killing the flesh and breathing life into the spirit.in order to kill something, we must not feed it. I am not just speaking of food, any gratification feeds this flesh.

How can we expect to run on the battle field when we get tired in the meadow? Sunday i was issued a challenge to step out of the normal day to flow and insert time with God. I do see this as a fast but a lifestyle adjustment, a path of constant renewal. Don’t think for a moment that life will go on as status quo. Let God Stretch you.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 5/8/19 Set The Temperature, Don’t React to it!

Hello family…

I kept the video from yesterdays devotion because there is more that God wanted me to pull from it.

We (the body of Christ) are designed to be the thermostat for this world, not the thermometer. This world is regressing into darkness and it is becoming more and more vital that the body of Christ is unified so we are able to truly be the light of the world.

This means that we no longer react based off of the instincts developed form this world, our financial status, race, political association, the culture we grew up in. It all takes a backseat, because we are not of this world. We operate under the governing of the highest authority that exist.

God is advancing us further and further away from how the system of this world operates. When we see the Governments making waves we should not be like the boat that is tossed by the waves but the rocks that break up the waves on the shore.

Morning Coffee 5/7/19 Editing Phase

PLAY VIDEO FIRST.

Hello family…

God ever give you a glimpse of who he has destined you to be? I am not just speaking of success in this world but more to who you are in God’s kingdom. We see that small glimpse that God shares with us and we get all excited and want to hit the hyper drive button, but our current person is not yet prepared to handle what God showed us in that preview.

So God will put us in a editing phase and we will look up and ask God “Yo have you forgotten the glimpse you showed me?” Are you ready for EVERYTHING that comes with what God showed you? That is what God asked me and the answer is no I’m not yet ready.

There are reasons why we may still be in the editing phase. God may want you to learn something, God could be waiting for you to act on instruction he has given you. The point is not to rush the process but to enjoy and soak up everything we can at whatever level God has us on so we will be ready when it is time to step up.

While this editing process is happening we cannot revert back to where we’ve come from, as God revealS more and more of who we are we must conduct our self in that manner.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 4/17/19 One Common Bond

Hello family…

I have just gotten back from a two week family cruse. It was an incredible time, but nothing stood out and impacted me more than the guest lead bible study that happened each day.

We were a diverse group, from Germany, to Australia we came from all corners of the globe. My Father was the first to attend then my mother and i followed. It was a beautiful example of the ultimate goal that God has for His body. I heard the gospel of john read in french/Creole. It was also read in German. Di-spite the different languages and cultural differences, we were there for ONE purpose. We were there to hear from God’s Holy Spirit, we were there to draw closer to Him and to each other. The only Head was Christ. No “I’m this denomination and i attend this cathedral or church.” We were ONE, with each other and we were ONE with GOD.
“All the believers were together and had everything in common.” (Acts 2:44 NIV)

Morning Coffee 3/15/19 Voices!

Hello family…

Beware the noise. Beware the noise that can come from well meaning voices in your life. It is critical that any input into our lives be filtered by the Holy Spirit.

When God speaks the residue should not be confusion or chaos. Every you tube video sent to you may not be for you. You may love and respect the person that sent it and what they may not seem bad, but at that moment That may not be for you. God is drawing us all closer to Him. He wants us to have a clear mind and focus so we can be ready when He instructs us. beware the product of the voices that come to the gates of you body.

Much Love & God Bless

Sunday Thoughts 3/10/19

st

Don’t forget the heart of God. Yes know the word of God that is recorded in the sixty six book that constitute the Bible, but also know the heart of God. How else did David become a man after God’s own heart? He did not have the bible as we do today. David knew the heart of God, he was intimate with God. If we don’t know the heart of a matter how can we understand it? Don’t forget the heart of God.

Morning Coffee 2/27/19 It Was Death!

Hello Family…

Hello family..

“’The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. But the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden— except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”
Genesis 2:15-17 NLT

Adam and Eve’s actions did not bring sin into to creation, it bough death. I don’t know how long Adam and Eve lived in the garden before they disobeyed God. I do know this the option to go against what God had instructed was there from the very moment God gave His command. Sin is rebellion against God and that took place even before the actions of Adam and Eve.

‘“How you are fallen from heaven, O shining star, son of the morning! You have been thrown down to the earth, you who destroyed the nations of the world. For you said to yourself, ‘I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north. I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.’ Instead, you will be brought down to the place of the dead, down to its lowest depths.” Isaiah 14:12-15

When the enemy came to Eve in the form of a serpent the option for her and adam to dismiss his tempting lies was available, but they did not resist and they sinned. So with Adam and Eve’s disobedience Death was introduced to all of creation. Look how your body was designed it was never meant for death or to die. It is always regenerating itself, constantly renewing itself. God breathed LIFE into us there is no death in God.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
If no option to disobey God (sin), Adam and Eve would have never listened to the serpent. Because God does not want a bunch of robots who are pre programmed to do what he wants, He gave us free will, He gave us the ability to choose to serve Him or to follow our own thinking. God desires a people who will look at anything that contradicts Him and dismiss it. “’Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.’
Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT

Morning Coffee 2/11/19 The Gospel According to….

Hello Family…

Hello family,

The Word of God does not stop at the last “Amen” in Revelation. As I was on my way to church one Sunday , the Holy Spirit said to me “You are still in bible times.” When we read the bible we sometimes put it in a box.

We put a distance between our lives and the sixty six books, as if we are incapable of being used by God in the same way He used the people in thoes books. If the Word of God is living and active, then it is not restricted to just sixty six books. You and I are not any less or more important than the disciples that walked with Christ.

When Christ came into your life He started the Gospel within you. So the people that come into your path have a chance to read from your life, the Gospel according to (your name here). You are an apostle to someone in your sphere of influence. God wants them to read from your book.

The Bible is our blueprint for life, just because the Gospel of (your name here) is not physically written in it does not make you any less significant. We have to realize the authority God gave us, to impact this world.

Much Love & God Bless

“Even Till The End Of The Age!” (Poem)

Hello Family…

Even when government rises against government. He is with you.

Even when there are wars and rumors of wars, He is with you.

Even when the elect are fooled and turn away in there blindness.

Even then God will not abandon those who truly seek is guidance.

Even as heaven and earth pass away and the mountains turn to dust. He is with you.

Even when they put you on trial because of His name, He is with you.

His thoughts of you existed before the foundations of the world.

He is faithful and will complete the work He started in you.

Be still and know that He alone is God, And He will not abandon you.

He will present you faultless in the presence of His Glory.

He will wipe away every tear and all sorrows will fade.

Your steps are ordered of the Lord. He guide you.

Do not fear the shadow of death, for it will not touch you!

He was with you yesterday, He is with you today.

And will be with you even till the end of the age.

Much Love & God Bless
