REPENTANCE!


repentance-radical

THIS IS NOT A POPULAR WORD TODAY IN THE CHURCH WORLD!

Acts 3:19, Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord

Merriam-Webster – to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one’s life:  to feel regret or contrition :  to change one’s mind

SO MANY WANT TO REPENT ENOUGH TO GET OUT OF HELL, BUT DO NOT WANT TO REPENT ENOUGH TO SURRENDER THEIR LIVES.

Doesn’t repentance demand that you surrender your life?

YES!!

That is the point.  Many have “repented” yet have not REPENTED.  They do not want to lose their soul to Satan, but they also do not want to SURRENDER their lives to JESUS either.

Matt. 16:25, If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.

TRUE HAPPINESS, PEACE, AND JOY COME THROUGH A CLEAN HEART BEFORE JESUS.

Allow the Holy Spirit to meddle in your heart and mind to bring forth those areas that are holding you back from excelling in your relationship with Christ.

YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT!

DIG UP MY BACKYARD JESUS!


holes

THERE ARE MANY WHO WILL NEVER ALLOW JESUS TO REALLY GET INTO THE CLEAN UP JOB OF THEIR LIVES BECAUSE THEY HAVE BURIED ALL THE JUNK IN THE BACKYARD.

Today I want to encourage you not only to read these verses, but then ask the Holy Spirit to DO these verses in your life.

SEARCH ME GOD…..that is a scary request!

KNOW MY HEART TODAY……..what are my intentions?

MAKE ME MORE LIKE YOU JESUS!!!

Ps. 139:1-6, God, investigate my life;
    get all the facts firsthand.
I’m an open book to you;
    even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
    I’m never out of your sight.
You know everything I’m going to say
    before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you’re there,
    then up ahead and you’re there, too—
    your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
    I can’t take it all in!  MSG

Ps. 139:13-16, Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
    you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
    Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
    I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
    you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
    how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
    all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
    before I’d even lived one day.  MSG

WE MAKE OURSELVES AVAILABLE HOLY SPIRIT…..CHANGE US TO BE MORE LIKE JESUS!

Change YOUR Perspective!


change-your-perspective

When a New Year comes everyone decides to make a resolution (usually going to the gym or to eat healthier) and they usually give up after a week. They are both great things to work on, but if you were to do one thing for 2016 I would like to challenge you to change your perspective. Let me explain quickly. Often times Christians do not fully grasp how big God truly is.

We feel alone in our situations and think that we have to do everything in our “natural” strength. Our perspective is tainted because God wants to be heavily involved in everything we do. The sad thing is we continually choose to limit God and put Him in the “traditional Christian” box. He is the solution to every need, want, and desire that we have!

 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha (2 Kings 6:16-17).

 In this story Elisha and his servant were in a city surrounded by an army preparing an attack. His servant was assessing the situation with his “natural” eyes and not his spiritual eyes. Elisha had to change his perspective and pray that God would open his servant’s eyes. When God did, the servant saw the true scenario. The angels of the Lord were around the army protecting them! When the servant’s perspective changed he was no longer in fear, but he was full of confidence and ready to face the situation.

I want to challenge you for 2016 to change your perspective. The Bible speaks of walking by faith and not by sight. Faith says that we are fully persuaded that whatever we are facing. God is in full control. If we do our responsibility (the required prudence) Jesus will do His responsibility and meet every need we have.

SHIFTS OF LIFE!


man-change

LIFE IS MUCH LIKE THE 4 SEASONS OF THE YEAR.

Does the word CHANGE sound familiar?

Every season is distinctly different yet without the last you would never move to the next.  Each season builds upon the last to take you to another level in your life of Holy Spirit success.

Let’s look at Peter!

He was a professional fisherman with multiple boats!  Just minding his own business and BAM…Jesus shows up!

Matt 4:19-20, Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” 20 And they left their nets at once and followed him.

SHIFT!

He went from being a business owner to a traveling intern!

SHIFT!

From a traveling intern to a turncoat!

SHIFT!

From a turncoat to filled with the Holy Ghost and speaking with other tongues!

SHIFT!

Speaking in tongues to preaching to multitudes!

SHIFT!

Speaking to multitudes to being the launcher of the entire body of Christ!

SHIFT!

Preaching the first message of the Church to preaching to the Gentiles!

LIFE IS ABOUT SHIFTING AND MOVING FORWARD!

NOT EVERY SEASON IS PERFECT BUT IT ALLOWS US TO GROW IN JESUS TO OUR NEXT LEVEL OF MINISTRY AND SUCCESS!

Prov. 3:5-6, 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.

**Not every season is God.  Jesus will NEVER use what He delivered us from on the cross to test us.  Do not confuse a horrible season as a God season.  Call a spade a spade.

Convert or Revert


Gal 2:20-21,  My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless.

There is an old song of the church called, “The Things I Used To Do” and it explains that when you give your heart to Jesus there has been a “GREAT CHANGE since I have been born again.”

What kind of change?  GREAT CHANGE.

The difficulty is that the studies have shown that those who call themselves Christians live the same kind of life that they did BEFORE they said the sinners prayer.  They go to the same places, say the same things, do the same doings, act the same actions, drink the same drinks.  THERE WAS NO CHANGE!

WE ARE CALLED TO BE CONVERTED, not say a prayer.

CONVERT –  cause to change in form, character, or function.

When we accept Jesus there will be a change.  We are not the same.  We are alive to Christ and dead to sin.  We are called to be holy, and not live like the heathens.

SO WHY ARE SO MANY WALKING AWAY FROM GOD IN THESE LAST DAYS?

When you are not CONVERTED and have just said a prayer so you will not go to hell, then the passionate fire of Jesus is not CONTROLLING your life.  

Gal 2:20a,  My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.

WHEN WE SURRENDER OUR LIVES TO JESUS WE ARE CONVERTED, CHANGED, TO START BECOMING LIKE HIM!

WHEN WE ARE NOT CONVERTED, AND ONLY SAID A PRAYER TO GET OUT OF HELL, WE WILL ALWAYS REVERT!

Revert – go back to what we know and used to be.

TODAY IF YOU SEE THAT YOU ARE SLIDING BACK INTO YOUR OLD LIFESTYLE, OR YOU NEVER LEFT IT…….

It is time to get back to the altar and give your life to Jesus, BE A CONVERT, or  YOU WILL SLIDE AWAY FROM JESUS AND REVERT TO BECOMING A HEATHEN AND HELL-BOUND LIKE YOU WERE BEFORE.

There is a heaven to gain, and a hell to shun!!
