Have not written in sometime now as I have been receiving such great illumination from God and somethings are not for just anyone. I have understood my material is for a mature believer. One who won’t take offense to the truth.
I’m going on about 14 years faithfully serving the Lord after being reborn. It’s been such a journey. I must say I’m truly grateful for each day as it’s been a learning experience and a great process. I say today Gods not done yet!! There is so much more.
I was meditating today as I looked around the room in the place/space we use weekly to gather and worship. I was having an in-depth conversation with God… I’m sure many of you have experienced that. I was replaying my journey. I visualized my self first getting saved to then experiencing an encounter with Jesus and shortly after leading multiple cell groups at my church to then head off to Bible seminary which my journey has been by far the greatest learning experience ever but I can say all of it was for preparation to where I am today.
I was also thinking about the many leaders and pastors that corrected me along the way and giving thanks for each correction, sit down, discipline needed to form my character and believe me there is still more to be done. If it was not for them I don’t know where I would be today. I’m giving credit where credit is earned. Good people, Chosen by God. One word #grateful.
Today our second church plant 🌱 stands at the phase of what many would consider a cell group. It’s in the incubator stage. Nurturing the core team to have them aligned with Gods perfect and pleasing will. It’s a process which many have aborted. And that’s okay this mission is not for everyone.
Honestly, It’s more challenging today then ever. I mean let’s be real today church is so overrated. The enemy is always looking for ways to destroy and devour. I mean call me old school but I’m not into all the un-biblical stuff I see taking place out there.
Just to mention a few; school of prophets, school of deliverance, e-courses, webinars, church online and on and on. Yes, it’s a great way to create revenue but nothing compares to what the Word Of God instructs us to do. You can’t buy your way into His KINGDOM… reminds me that was spoken to me by God over 12 years ago. Such foolishness.
Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
Hebrews 10:25-27 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
And the Bible goes on and on… we can’t allow ourselves to be as this world even if we live in it. For when the coming of the Lord we must assure our house is in order. So much disorder is what I’m seeing. It saddens me to think that many truly believe that they will be ok with this.
Don’t get me wrong “I am a merciful preacher but I am more a take it right out of the Bible and take it up with God if you don’t like it preacher.”
That we never loose our wonder and run back to the ways of God. Whatever His word says is where you and I are guaranteed. Be wise and not fall into the traps of such liberal beliefs. And No!!! I’m not religious if you knew me well you would know that. Get back into the Bible and follow His commands to assure your salvation. Be sober in your walk with Christ and know that there is a Generation behind you looking to see how you walk out this walk called Faith.
Love ❤️ His Word in my Pen
