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.

Much Love & God Bless

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

Morning Coffee 1/8/19 “I’m gonna be Batman!”

Hello Family…

Please watch the above video first.

“I’m gonna be Batman” “And I’m gonna be the police chief so i can help my brother!”

These were the responses my seven and eleven year old cousins gave to my mother when she asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. They were not joking in the least. My mother and I attempted to reason them into more attainable carrier goals but all that did was strengthen there determination to be Batman and the police chief (not a police chief, The police chief). The discussion got so deep that by the time they left I had given up any attempt to convince them that they could not be what they aspired to become.

At one point we were my cousins, we were the little boy in the video above. Then we met doubt and logic and we allowed them to clip our wings. So when God leads us in an impossible direction we back away and retreat to our comfort zone, where things make logical sense.

The boy in the video wanted to be spider man and at some point before the recording started he looked to his Father to provide the impossible. In 2019 we are going to be presented with impossible things and we will feel the Holy Spirit leading us into these things. But he will not force us into them.

‘Is anything too hard for the Lord ? I will return about this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”’ Genesis 18:14 NLT

Morning Coffee 1/7/19 Friends & Slaves

Hello Family…

“I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.” John 15:15 NLT

Jesus had to re adjust how the disciples viewed their relationship with Him. The things that He would share with them through the holy spirit would be on a deeper personal level. Yes they will still serve Christ but not out of a “because my master says so” thinking, but a “Christ is my friend, i will follow Him because i love Him” mindset.

The church (body of Christ) today operates primarily from a slave mindset. You may have just raised an eyebrow and felt the urge to click away at what i just said but let the Holy Spirit speak your spirit. We have put God out of reach. we have boxed our selves into being robots. Sunday go to church get a message to get us to Wednesday night bible study or next Sunday where we come in weighed down by the baggage from the previous week and look for a message from the pastor to lift us up for the up coming week.

HELLO!!!! Christ calls us His FRIEND! Think about your closest friend, if they need to spend time with you do they call a mutual friend to get the message to you? No, They come directly to you! The pastors and bishops are not the only ones that cant get a revelation form God, We can can get all deep mysteries we want and then minister to others. God bless you pastor or bishop God put them in the right position but don’t make them god.

You know why the Apostles did such awesome and bold things? They didn’t put Christ in an untouchable place. They operated from relationship and not religion. In the early church there was not membership but relationship And everyone was a minister, everyone was viewed as vital. You don’t sacrifice you self for slaves. You sacrifice out of the love for a friend. And that is what Christ did.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 1/5/19 Disciplined

Hello Family…

We are disciplined in the things we want to be disciplined in.

take a moment let that sink in and marinate for a minute. On January 2nd I grew tired of the disarray that my room was in. Fueled by frustration and the comments of my eleven and seven year old cousins “Brandon your room is always junkie.” I forced my self out of bed, grabbed some trash bags and blocked out every distraction until the room was clean and in order.

But doing this frustration fueled massive clean is nothing new. I have attacked my room before only for it to end up in shambles not long after. The key is discipline! Breaking the little lazy habits that build up and make a big mess. It is a conscious 24/7 effort to defeat the smallest of habits that lead to a junkie room. But if i want my room to stay the way it is then these are the things i need to do.

Some areas we are naturally disciplined in. Then there are areas of our life that we “angry clean” only for it to return to its previous state. These are the areas that God wants to work on, and He will let you know that they need working on. But we push it off and come up with lame excuses to give reason why we simply can’t do it. The truth is we don’t want to go through the discipline to improve that part of our life.

We will only hurt our self in the end if we live a discipline less life. ”
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11 NIV
