Our God is greater, stronger, nothing can stand against us!

When we first become saved, become Children of God, with Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We get on Fire, or I know I did, I came home from Church that day, telling my brother, Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. Excitedly finding my Mom and Dad, and my Sister to tell them all about learning that Jesus Christ bore all the sins of Humans, upon Himself in our place. I even cried a little when explaining how Jesus as He was carrying His own Cross was being scourged, the blows came from a whip with many leather strands, each having sharp pieces of bone or metal at the ends. It reduced the back to raw flesh, and it was not unusual for a criminal to die from a scourging, even before crucifixion.

Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36As it is written, For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered. 37 Yet, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Jesus calling”Trust in me”.

This is so beautiful! Because when I  fall and make a mistake I usually fall into condemnation, this reminds me to run to Jesus and let him turn my mistake into a masterpiece and something beautiful. We learn from our mistakes, this is all apart of the molding and shaping process we must go through in order to become that precious Jewell and reach our destination.Watch “Jesus Calling by Sarah Young “Trust in Me” Video Devotional” on YouTube

Usually some time or another in our lives, most of us seem to end up having real bad things affect us, but usually our family or friends are able to help us so we don’t end up homeless. A few years back in 2007 and 2008 I lived in my Motor home, which was parked on a friends property. I was still waiting to be approved for disability and in Arizona a married couple only received $237.00 total cash, so that was not even enough to put my RV in a space. We did receive over $500.00 on a food stamp card. So because I got hurt falling about nineteen foot headfirst, in Jan. 1989 that many years later I was still being affected by it.

WALKING WITH GOD

fb_img_1486856122942We all fall short of the glory of GOD, however if we hold on to it by making excuses, staying in denial or refusing to let it go, it will consume us!! GOD convicted me that i had to surrender my will and stay in the word , prayer, fellowship (church) practice self- control, asi grew in the Lord he convicted what to do, helped guided and strengthened me along the way. We need to continue to put GOD first humble ourselves and he will help us persevere through any trials we go through!!!!❤😇💚👼💛👏👏👏☝☝☝

GOD CAN TURN BAD INTO GOOD

Do you remember Joseph? His brothers called him “the dreamer” to mock him. When they had the chance, they even wanted to kill him! They couldn’t conceive of the extraordinary destiny that awaited Joseph, the future prime minister of Egypt, the largest geopolitical power of the time. Yet, God would use Joseph to save them and their entire family!

That which was meant for evil, God will use for good

However, rejection is tough! Have you suffered rejection or others simply not understanding you? It’s important to know that this may be part of God’s plan to bring you further along in your destiny. He wants to use your life to accomplish amazing things, things way beyond you, so that through your life, even those who rejected you might be blessed and saved! In this way, you can become a true miracle for others!

Ascribe to God the Glory due His name.

picture-psalm-29-2-give-yahweh-the-glory-due-to-his-name-worship-him-in-the-beauty-of-holinessPsalm 29:2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. Giving glory, ascribing glory, is not an easy thing for us to do. Let’s admit it. We’re much more used to asking from God rather than blessing God and calling others to him. I believe because God gave us His perfect, Holy Son, that we should feel proud to sing Praises, to God and Jesus Christ, God’s amazing free gift, given to us to accept God’s gift of Salvation, through Jesus Christ. Amen, I Praise you and I thank you Lord God. I proudly use the thundering voice God gave me to sing praises, thanking God, singing proudly, very loudly, many words of Praise and Thanksgiving to our God.       Here are some great verses on Praising and Worshipping God’s name, Psalm 86:9 All nations whom You have made Shall come and worship before You, O Lord, and shall glorify Your name. Psalm 86:12 I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And I will glorify Your name forevermore. Psalm 103:1 Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! I have been blessed many times with answered Prayer, because I looked up Scriptures or spoke them from memory into my Prayers standing on these promises in Scriptures, and God heard and answered my Prayers, Praise you and thank you Lord God. Praise you and thank you Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. 

All along Sin has required the shedding of Blood.

Under the Old Testament law, sins that were not punishable by death, were atoned for through the sacrifice of an animal’s life. The shedding of blood was required to atone for all other sin. We might wonder why such a terrible thing was required by God. Why were innocent little lambs and doves slain and their blood sprinkled on the altar? If we place ourselves in the situation of being instructed to kill an animal for telling a lie or committing some other types of sin. We can see and understand an innocent animal must be sacrificed because of our sin, which illustrates the awfulness of sin. God wanted Man to understand that whenever any sin was committed, it meant death for something or someone.

If we were still under the Old Testament law today, we would still be required to shed the blood of an Animal, or someone to atone for our sins. The Lord wanted us to realize that the penalty of sin would cause a life to be taken. So people would be required to bring an unblemished dove, lamb, type of innocent Animal and bring it to be slain upon an altar as an offering for their sins.Through this sacrifice the impact of sin became real to them. Today not only does the blood of Jesus bring cleansing to the body. We also can see in Hebrews 9:14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot or blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

The Lord desires that all the evil from within our hearts and minds and consciences be purged so we can have the mind of Christ. This cleansing process is accomplished by applying the Word of God to our lives. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. By fellowshipping with other Christians, fully studying the Word. John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. The more of His Word that we know and apply, the cleaner our vessel shall be. The Word of God cleanses and the blood of Jesus cleanses. When Jesus offered up His blood, He did it so that you and I could become clean, holy vessels.

The blood of Jesus Christ brings Eternal life to everyone of us, who accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Just as blood beating through the physical Human body keeps the body alive. Those who do not know the Lord Jesus are dead and have no life in them. Also, those who refuse to accept Christ will never receive eternal life. 1 John 5:11-12 and this is the testimony that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. Jesus said in John 10:10, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Another function of the human blood is its capacity to bring healing to the physical body. Human blood is composed of more than just red blood cells. In fact, over half (55 percent) of our blood is not red at all. It is a clear liquid, known as plasma, that is 92 percent water. The other 8 percent includes many essential substances necessary to keep our bodies healthy. These are proteins, hormones, vitamins, enzymes and salts. Should the body become ill, the blood alters its normals to adjust and promote healing. The white blood cells are the body’s first line of defense against bacterial invaders. When bacteria enter the body, white blood cells are produced in great numbers. They travel to the infection and engulf the invaders. The blood of Jesus spiritually does the same for the body of Christ. Amen.

God and Jesus are omnipresent.

I find it very interesting that the Bible does not ever just say that God loves us. Instead, it says: in Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. John 3:16 6 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life, we see in every way God gave much more, Love is more than emotion or intention.

True love, redemptive love, God-styled love is active; it does something. For us, Jesus did more than something; he sacrificed everything. What’s more, he did it when we most needed it. He demonstrated his love when we were still sinners! I always feel I must share, I believe with Jesus Christ God supplied everything, because Jesus is omnipresent, here there and everywhere. We just need to learn to ask our Holy Spirit how to use it. God did all we will ever want or need through giving us Jesus Christ.

My Prayer, Father thank you for loving me, I love you, I appreciate you for all you have done in my life, and through my life, Praise you and I thank you Lord God. I love you for your promises. I love you for your faithfulness. Most of all, Heavenly Father, I love you because of Jesus who showed me just how much you love me. Please empower me to show my love by serving and giving to others as Jesus did. In Jesus Christ name I pray, I thank you and I praise you for hearing and answering our Prayers, Amen.

All Christians we need to keep Israel in our Prayers, I am going to be Praying many times per day in many ways. Asking God to keep my mind on what to Pry and through my Holy Spirit to Pray for Israel in all other needed ways. Praise God, Amen.

Gods Peace

Kathy Owen Philippians 4:7/ The peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. This is one of those wonderful promises that is hard to understand! This is a peace that the world can not offer, it can only come from God.

Prepare your Heart

When we explore a group of results about True Believers, or Christians, we find they don’t plan to depart from following God’s plan. I believe just like when I do it, they/we just naturally, usually habitually follow their flesh desires, instead of continuing to follow the leading of Jesus Christ. Put a little different, Christians don’t plan to sin, they haven’t fully renewed their Minds. They have not learned, or prepared their Hearts, before the temptation suddenly is upon them. A Christian, Newborn Child of God, need to take time immediately after becoming Saved, find out how to start your day?  Ask to talk with a Pastor, or Minister, so you can get answers to all the important need to do daily tasks. Because it is very important to begin your day, 1. Get in the habit of putting on the Armor of God Ephesians 6:10-11, 10. Finally be strong in the Lord, and in His mighty power 11. Put on the full Armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Then make time to talk with God, our Heavenly Father or Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior in Prayer. While Praying ask God to help you understand the Word of God you will make time to Read and study  your Bible after Praying. Get into studying and Reading daily in your Bibles, God’s Word. Praying God will prepare them, through fellowship and getting into Bible study group with other Christians.

My testimony of what I did as a Newborn Child of God, I was pretty stubborn, stuck following, same sad, bad, habits. Every so often when I needed something I would Pray, then get frustrated because usually my prayer would go unanswered. Finally after a few years I learned to enjoy receiving answered prayers, I learned to begin my day off right by learning I should Pray first thing in the Morning. Praying for God to make me useful, to God, preparing me to share my Testimony, or past life experiences, which God would use successfully to help others. I had a few wow moments after Praying for God to give me Wisdom and understanding of His Word in my Bible. When I humbly ask God in prayer before I start reading my Bible, God gladly hears and answers my prayer, and helps me understand for sure.

God for sure answered that prayer, helping me to continue renewing my Mind. I was shocked totally when a huge issue I had with a very angry, mouthy Guy, that could push my buttons and get me very angry. A few weeks earlier our Pastor did his Sermon on Praying for our enemies. I even amazed myself, while Paul was talking crap about me and my family, which normally would of gotten Paul punched out as soon he mentioned anything concerning my family. Paul was so lucky, my girlfriend Debbie mentioned the Pastors Message, for me to stay calm and Pray for Paul. When Paul couldn’t get me angry, he continued working. But later I heard Paul cussing up a storm, I had to go see what was causing Paul’s anger. I couldn’t keep from laughing, Paul had two flat tires, without a jack and only one spare. I had to leave the area, so I could quit laughing, so I went back to work, about an hour later Paul very politely came and ask if I could take him to buy a tire and rim. I surprised Paul with the fact, my Spare and rim were a perfect match, so I let who earlier was my enemy was now my friend borrow my Spare and use my jack. Paul was very surprised that  I gladly helped him.

yes-create-in-me-a-clean-heart-o-god-and-renew-a-right-spirit-within-me-psalm-51-10 We find in Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, his good, pleasing and perfect will. We each surrendered our heart to God and our old self was crucified with Christ when we became Christians (Romans 6:6). Jesus reminds us that this surrender is something each of us should do daily (Luke 9:23). We need to put the old sinful life aside every day and choose to live for Jesus in response to God’s grace. As we begin this new year, let’s make it our spiritual habit to consciously offer ourselves to the Lord and joyously live under his lordship of Jesus each day.

The Words we speak, or others speak into our lives really make a difference!

The Bible this book will change your life but you have to read it. pictureEveryone of us as Humans, in a lot of ways speak forth  Words that either affect us in positive or negative ways. Also when growing up, the Words our Parents said to us, could have helped us become confident, able to figure out the best way to tackle the many different tasks or problems in our lives.  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 1 Chronicles 16:34-35, 34 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 35 And say, Save us, O God of our salvation; Gather us together, and deliver us from the Gentiles, To give thanks to Your Holy name, and glory in your praise.

When we fully understand the power of our words and realize that we can choose our Words wisely, think long and hard before we speak, because our lives, and the lives of others can be transformed. If we are having a Bad day the words, we speak, can completely change our Day. One thing is for sure, speaking negatively can and will hurt you, while I believe speaking positively never will, hurt us or others. Why don’t we just begin learning to use the positive Words and see what kind of results we get? I am sure you have heard someone say, You are going to eat those words. It may sound like a mere phrase to us, but in reality we do eat our words. What we say not only affects others, but it also affects us.

Another way to look at, you are going to have to eat your words – to publicly admit that something you said was wrong, and apologize to everyone your words effected. Words are wonderful when used in a proper way. They can encourage, edify and build confidence to the hearer. A right word spoken at the right time can actually be life-changing. We can for sure see in Proverbs 15:1-4 1. A soft answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger. 2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. 3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. 4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

We can literally increase our own happiness in our lives by speaking righteous, uplifting positive words, or we can also upset ourselves by talking unnecessarily about our problems or things that have hurt us in relationships. Proverbs 15: 6 -9 6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble. 7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so. 8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. 9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness. I have found in certain situations where others have hurt us, or whatever happened when we think about it, or talk about it bothers us a lot. It is better for me if I just don’t talk about it.

What happens when Parents get in the habit of always embarrassing you in front of your friends, or just in public. I have seen how hurt Kids get when their Parents, won’t make time to listen, when they are really excited about something. A lot of Parents won’t take time to listen to their Kids, but will sadly take time to scream and holler, rudely going crazy saying, how worthless their son is or daughter is, when I think it is the Parents, that have their priorities way off. My Parents would take us to Lake Isabella almost every weekend all Summer long, and we would Water Ski or Ride the about 3 1/2 feet Circle disk. We would also stay up most of the Night Fishing for Catfish with Chicken Liver chunks 2-3 inch thick circle of the Chicken Liver hooked threw 4-5 times, then Cast it out about 40 feet. We learned quick to stay and watch your Fishing pole or hold it don’t keep reeling it in unless you have set the hook into whatever took your Bait. We would usually catch 4-8 Channel or Bullhead Catfish.

Our Dad could hardly wait for us to be old enough to hold and shoot at first a Single Shot 20 gauge Shotgun for me, and a 16 gauge shotgun for my Bother Josh, my dads name was J Garold. I was 6 and my Brother was 5 when we went and took the Hunter Safety course, a three nights of training course, the third day we took the Test, I got the highest score a 97/100 1 point ahead of the best of 1 of the three girls. I was so happy everyone did fantastic, the lowest all of us got was 89 only missing 5 1/2 questions. So for sure yes all of our Parents were very proud of us, and lovingly told us how proud they were of us. When we understand the power of words and realize that we can choose what we think and speak, into our lives can transform us.

The words that come out of our mouth go into our own ears as well as other people’s, and then they drop down into our soul where they give us either joy or sadness, peace or upset, depending on the types of words we have spoken. God desires that our spirit be light and free so it can function properly, not heavy and oppressed. We can learn to choose our thoughts, to resist wrong ones and think on good, healthy, and right ones. I have often said, Where the mind goes, the man follows. And it could also be said that where the mind goes, the mouth follows!

When we understand the power of our words and realize that we can choose what we think and speak, out into our lives can and will transform us.. Our best plan is to learn to say everything in a positive way, using positive words, about others and about ourselves. God has given His children a new nature, and we are taught to daily renew our mind and attitude. When we have a positive outlook on life and speak positive words based on God’s Word is one of the most wholesome things we can do. When you get up in the morning, if there is something you need to attend to that day that you’re not looking forward to, you can say, “I dread this day,” or you can say, God will give me strength today to do whatever I need to do and to do it with joy.

As we have seen, we eat our words, and we can rightfully say that they are food for our souls. Anyone who wants to be healthy is careful to choose quality food that will provide good nutrition. If we want to be healthy in our soul and spirit, we should also choose to take in words that will build us up and increase our peace and joy. We all have challenges in life, but we can make them better or worse by the way we talk about them. I don’t believe we can change all of our circumstances into pleasant ones by making positive confessions, but I do believe many of them will change according to God’s will. I simply want to teach you to be in agreement with God and learn to say what He says. The Words you speak into your Life, when positive will make a big difference in, the life.

Especially when we always tend to draw Attention to the Positives. I believe there are many good things happening in the world and probably there is more good than bad. But the evil is magnified in a way that often seems overwhelming. Turn on any news station or buy any newspaper or news magazine and you will find it filled with reports of murder, theft, wars, famine and all kinds of horribly tragic events. It is good to be well informed of what is going on, but to talk about world problems excessively creates a gloomy atmosphere nobody will enjoy.

I am a Christian

When I say I am a Christian, I am not shouting that I am clean living. I’m whispering I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven. When I say I am a Christian, I don’t speak of this with pride. I’m confessing that I stumble and I need Christ to be my guide. When I say I am a Christian, I’m not trying to be strong. I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on. When I say I am a Christian, I’m not bragging of success, I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess. When I say I am a Christian, I am not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far to visible, but God believes I am worth it. When I say I am a Christian I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of headaches, so I call upon His name. When I say I am a Christian, I’m not holier than thou, I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s good grace!

I believe without God’s blessing and grace added into my life at just the right time. The same week I was going to Graduate from High School, I went the last day of the previous week to a Revival with my Girlfriend Debbie. We both got saved that Sunday, by asking Jesus Christ into our hearts as our Lord and Savior. Becoming saved is probably what kept me alive, to be here now sharing this blog, after becoming Ordained July 03 2016. I fell 19 foot head first and landed on my Head on the Mojave dessert Ground which is just as hard as Concrete, I did not know I was hurt very bad so got up took a Lunch break a couple Aspirins and went back to work. From that fall I did mess up my Neck and Back.

For the next 25 years and counting I have taken a lot of Pain Pills, Muscle relaxers and gained over 130 pounds, which just put a lot more pressure on my bad back problem. Praise God even now still walking, myself and many Doctors can’t believe it I believe because I have an awesome loving caring God. I also got into smoking Marijuana quite a lot for Pain relief. Almost all of 2005 I even smoked Marijuana with my Mom, who was suffering with Brain Tumor and Lung Cancer, her Doctor had prescribed Marijuana for her pain. I am sure with all the pain I have been at times with pain in 8-10 spots at once, if I was not a Child of God, I probably would have committed suicide.God is love and His word the Bible states without love we are nothing. The Bible this book will change your life but you have to read it. picture

Where our Church World Transformation Ministries is located is right in the middle of where 1000’s of Homeless Men and Women get on and off of New Mexico Transit system Buses. We try to do outreach at least twice a month, having a Barbecue or just sometimes handing out 3-5 Dozen Doughnuts, always making sure to ask those we have contact with, if they are saved, if they need and want us to Pray for them, over them. Because our Church is very small, I ask if you like our blog and can please donate at our PayPal account.

 

 

 

 

A VERSE FROM THE BOOK OF PSALM

Do you ever think about what life was like before you knew Christ and how chaotic your life was especially when you were going through something and your life spun out of control, well this scripture is a perfect example of the peace you can obtain with Christ and not be moved by your circumstances. The word of God is what can guide you, strengthen you, and will sustain you so you will not stumble and fall!!!!👏👏👏 praise GOD!!!!!👏👏👏👼👣😇💙
