The Last Bus Home

You hear it’s the final hour. It’s late at night. Someone earlier in the day talked to you about the bus schedule. You believed in the bus company so you catch the last bus home.

Others were not successful in catching the bus and you are anxious for what will happen to them overnight. 

Every soul that God has created is precious to Him. He has paid for the free bus ride home for all creation. That bus being Jesus. John 3:16. 

Jesus is Our Savior…  Once…  and then should be our Lord daily.

Once in Heaven, we don’t know if we will be able to wonder about those who didn’t make the Last Bus. What if we are able to wonder if we could have done more and reached more souls but were afraid of rejection?

Of course the Bible says there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ and walk according to the Spirit. So is walking according to the Spirit of God walking AWAY from telling friends and strangers about Jesus? I don’t believe so. Walking according to the Spirit would be doing as God wants us to do. That includes the Great Commission. See Mark 16 and Matthew 28. 

God has not given the angels charge to minister the Gospel of Jesus the Christ. He has given it to you and I. Let us be bold. May it never be that you be in fear of rejection!  For it is not us who are alive anyway. Gal 2:20. It is Christ who lives through us….. Or perhaps better stated, He is able to live through us to the degree that we allow Him to which evidenced by the fruit of the average believer is sadly not much at all. 

It is not going to be possible to save souls from Heaven. The only time is while here. And that time here is but a vapor.  It’s very short!  Let’s seize this opportunity. Lets not allow the devil to take one more soul! Get others to know about Jesus before it’s too late. The last bus is about to leave town. Let’s shout to all around us about the goodness and love of Jesus and his, payment for healing and all of their sins and allow others to experience His Kingdom. Demonstrate it with love but also with power. Be a fisher of men. Tell them about Jesus. He is the only bus, and therefore, The Last Bus Home.

Heaven on Earth

wp-1453757016742.png

Heaven on Earth
If I walk with the Lord my surroundings can become heaven on earth. There will be no separation between the heavens and the earth. The line will be so blurred I won’t be able to tell where one begins and the other ends.  If we keep pressing towards the mark there can be freedom. To obtain that freedom I must move….create a ACTION. If I want to drive a car, looking at it all day won’t get it to move. I must get in and drive to experience the ride……taste and see. I am guilty of not moving sometimes to the left or to the right. Waiting for God to give instructions. If I read his word, He already tells me faith without works is dead. This means I must walk and believe so I will be made complete in doing both simultaneously.
Sometimes what we are waiting on God for is right there. If only we would believe and walk by faith. There’s nothing wrong with looking to God but there are things He already told us to do in the bible. Its like asking if you should show kindness or love to someone, when God commands us to love. Why would I ask if I should pray for a stranger?
No one said it was easy. I am aware of these facts in some areas of my life, but if I want a life change, I need to change every area for it to be life changing.
In Christ, change comes when our will lines up with the Lord’s will.
I always pray, Lord move heaven and earth to get this done. God is looking at me and saying…if (YOU Move) my will can be done. Gods word says apart from him we can do nothing. I have to move in Christ to do something.
Lord help us to move closer to you and not be apart from you. God help us to persevere against what our eyes see and our flesh feels. God help us to clearly tune into the God frequency and hear what he says to the church. Lord open the eyes of our understanding.
Heaven on earth is in us. Jesus died to make it all possible. If only we can remove ourselves from, our lives and let God drive.
Instead of us arguing, we can seek peace. Instead of us complaining wait on the Lord. Instead of us assuming seek Gods face. Heaven on earth comes when we carry it in us and let it out(it= he that lives in us). If Jesus came to earth, never did anything and never spoke, the price paid for salvation wouldn’t have happened. Heaven on earth comes when you don’t speak selective words when someone cuts you off in traffic. God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly all we can ask or think. Are we (willing) to do our part? Walking out our faith with fear and trembling….and moving in faith to complete a work. …heaven on earth can start with one person. Maybe that person can be me, or you.
Oh take me to that place Lord…to that secret place Lord. Where I can be with you.

The Word of God – Forever Settled in Heaven

Our amazing Father, the Most High God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Creator of the universe, and more importantly the Creator of YOU, has placed His own Word above His name.

Psalm 138:2 (NKJV)loveneverfails2

I will worship toward Your holy temple,
And praise Your name
For Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.

While some of us may have had the bible on the shelf collecting dust, the Words inside the covers are truly living and are sharper than a two-edged sword (Heb 4:12)   But having the Word of God come alive in your life only works when you begin to believe them.  In particular, when one reads, understands and carries them out.

Carry what out?   A couple of examples are Jesus’ commandments:

Matthew 22:37-40 (NASB)

37 And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the great and foremost commandment. 39 The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’40 On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”

The Word of God is so powerful, it is more than sufficient enough to change our lives for the better, but we must (1) believe it and (2) act on it.  It is not enough to simply read or even memorize the passage in Mark 16 on Jesus’ Great Commission where Jesus tells his disciples to:

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

We do not see the sick getting healed by merely believing (or memorizing) this set of scriptures.   We have to actually go and do this, just as Jesus instructed and commanded us to!  Only then will we see the sick getting healed by Jesus and his Holy Spirit working through us.   Healing is but one example of seeing God’s hand at work through a believer who is willing for God to use him.

It is pointless showing up to church week after week, being a hearer and not a doer. That person is deceiving themselves. (James 1:22).

I encourage you today to spend more time in God’s Word.  You will help your mind become renewed quicker (Romans 12:2), and the enemy will have fewer ways to cause you to stumble since you will know better.  You will be able to enforce the defeat the devil has already suffered because by reading the Word, you who will know who you are in Christ (Gal 3:29; Col 1:27).

Be Blessed by your Father’s Word, and we thank you Jesus!  Hallelujah!

Boldy Approach the Throne Through Prayer

image

When prayer becomes more than a word in the bible. When prayer is just not talked about. When prayer becomes a source and necessity in life. When the words apart from me you can do nothing….is applied. When the words, Jesus is the Lord of my life affects everything. When what you say and do, line up with the word of God. Your disciples become your children and family. You will see more kids praying for kids. In all you do and say the answer is God. How great is our God. I pray this becomes more contagious that iphones, facebook, and computer games. God is real.

Operating in Dominion and Authority?

Dear Believer,

Are you operating in the Dominion and the Authority that Jesus restored to you?  Whether you were born again this morning, or have been for many years, did you know that you can walk the earth and do the same works and greater works than Jesus?  Jesus said you would be able to (John 14:12).

In Christ You Are A Force to Be Reckoned With

You can co-labor with God (1 Cor 3:9).  God wants to set His creation free of bondage, from all sickness and disease, and above all He wants to restore His relationship with man through man’s confession and belief in Jesus (Rom 10:9).  God wants to use YOU to partner with him to get all of this done!

God the Father wants you to continue what his Son Jesus showed as an example when he was walking the earth over 2,000 years ago.  Jesus has commanded us in Mark 16 and Matthew 28 to go out into the world and to preach the Gospel.  This includes demonstrating the Kingdom of Heaven, just as Jesus did.  Jesus is with you wherever you go, and He will continue to confirm his Word with signs and wonders following.   If you are waiting to be told to do this, Jesus has already told you in His Word:

 

Mark 16:15 (NASB)

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Maybe like me, you never understood any of this, or no one ever showed you.   Perhaps you thought it was only Jesus who was laid hands on people.  Or that only the elders of the church were responsible for praying the prayer of faith for people.

The truth is, Jesus is still the healer, but he wants to use his believers to work through them.  He wants you to go about doing good, with him, and allowing him, through you, to heal all who are oppressed by the devil, for Jesus is with you!

The truth is, you as a follower of Christ CAN change the world for the better, in Christ.  You CAN bring heaven to earth, the very thing that Jesus spoke of when he was teaching his disciples what to pray (Matthew 6:9-13).

The audio teaching below covers some key scriptures which I encourage you to study, and then act out yourself.  Only Believe.

You are amazing in God!   Let us all make a dent in this fallen world.  A lot of dents amounts to a huge impact in the destruction of the enemy’s works.  We must bring Heaven to Earth so that what you see on earth matches what it would look like in Heaven.

Let us let our lights so shine upon men, Amen? (Matthew 5:16)
