The House That God Built: What is the foundation of your dominion?

The House That God Built:  What is the foundation of your dominion?

Living a life of security and blessings is as simple as being obedient to the word of God. Your entire dominion can be protected and blessed; all that you have, all that you are.  It is as easy as simply following the commandments of God.  Build your foundation upon the word of God.

In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus states, “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not:  for it was founded upon a rock.  And everyone that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell:  and great was the fall of it.”

Being a hearer and doer of God’s word sets your house (your foundation, your dominion) upon a rock…such stability that it does not fall no matter what turmoil it may encounter.

Those who are hearers of the word of God, but not doers set their house upon sand; a much weaker foundation.  This is such instability that it falls greatly when turmoil is encountered.

According to Ezekiel 13:11-15, such a house built on instability without the word of God is one built on “untempered morter” and “it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof:  and ye shall know that I am the Lord.”  It is a house built for appearance, but not endurance as it is not built up in Christ.  It is a foundation built without the word of God.

Wouldn’t you rather have the house that God built?  Submit to God and live obediently accordingly to His word.  Be both a hearer and doer of His word.  Have your house (your foundation, your dominion) built with the word of His grace!

Help in the time of trouble: How to sustain through trials and tribulations.

Whenever we are faced with problems (trials and tribulations), it is very easy to begin to feel defeated, discouraged, and hopeless.  The more you try to maintain your composure, the more you struggle to overcome as you cope.

2 Corinthians 4: 8-9 states, “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.”   

It is important to remember that we have the victory!  We will triumph over each and every situation because God will see us through.  Regardless of the problem that we may be facing, God is BIGGER!  He is bigger than ANY problem that we may encounter.

Remember to pray.  1 Thessalonians 5:17 states, “pray without ceasing.”  Prayer is the language of faith.  You have faith that God will see you through.  God changes people, things, and situations.  In everything and through prayer and supplication, make your requests be made known to God.

Although it may be hard, try to smile in the midst of your trials.  Find joy in the midst of your tribulations.  Praise His holy name!  Surrender it all; laying your problems at His feet. God is with you.  He has already taken care of your problem.  He will sustain you through it all and deliver you from it all!  Hold on to His everlasting hand!

Think like an Olympian: Pursue Your Dreams!

As I continue to watch the Sochi Olympics, I remain astounded by the drive, ambition, determination, and persistence of the athletes.  They are all living their dream:  to perform in the Olympics.  They all worked very hard to make it to the games and to perform well in the games.

What a lesson in life!  You have a dream.  You set a goal.  You work hard at that goal and work toward it.  You fulfill your dream and reach your goal.  It is that simple.

The most important component:  having both faith in yourself and faith that God will see you through.  Jesus states in the book of John 10:10, “…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  Nothing is impossible with God.  All you have to do is get to work.  God will bless the works of your hands and see you through. He has blessings in store for you; there for your taking!

So, it’s time to revisit that dream of yours that has been put on the shelf.  Pull it out.  Your success is right around the corner!

The Spiritual Challenge: Know God and His Word for Yourself!

The Spiritual Challenge: Know God and His Word for Yourself!.

The Spiritual Challenge: Know God and His Word for Yourself!

The bible states in Hosea 4:1, “Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel:  for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.”

Here is a spiritual challenge for you.  Put a stop to all of the noise of this world.  Try God! You have seen, heard, and experienced the traditions of men, the doctrines of devils, these evil and sinful ways of living; lifestyles that are contrary to the word of God.  Forget about all of that.  Block it all out of your mind.  You have heard the worldly side.  It is now time to hear the side of glory.  You experienced the worldly side.  Now it is now time to experience the holy side.  Take a step into Christianity on your own to learn for yourself.

Pick up the bible.  Study the word for at least three to six months.  Seek the guidance of a pastor of a nearby church.  You can even attend his or her services.  Ask questions of the pastor.  I challenge you to seek God for yourself.  Ask questions of God through prayer. You and God; one on one, the spiritual challenge.  Do it!

All Things of God: The Good Way For Living

In the book of Jeremiah 6:16, the bible states, “Thus saith the Lord, stand ye in the ways, and, see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls, But they said we will not walk therein.”

The “good way” is the following of the commandments of the God.  There is so much unnecessary confusion among people about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit; the trinity.  Yet, the truth is the word…the good way.   The word of God is the bible.  Open it, read it, see it, follow it, and abide by it.

Forget about what you have heard from mere man.  In 1 John 2:23-27, the bible states, “Whosoever denieth the son, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that acknowledgeth the son hath the Father also.  Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning.  If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.  And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.  These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.  But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you:  but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.”

You don’t need man to teach you “the good way” because you have not only the word of the God which is the Bible, but also the Holy Spirit to teach and guide you.  The Holy Spirit is the “anointing” that John refers to in this scripture.  Upon appearing before the apostles in Acts 1:5, Jesus states, “For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost…”   You have the Holy Spirit to guide you, so don’t listen to the world.

Your reward for following “the good way” of living according to God’s commandments and with obedience is everlasting life.  In John 3:16, the bible states, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son.”  No one enters the kingdom of God except through Jesus; accepting Jesus as both Lord and Savior.  You accept him as savior by acknowledging that Jesus was crucified, died on the cross for your sins, but rose again on the third day and is now alive and well seated at the right hand of God making intercession for all of us…our redeemer.  You accept him as Lord by following the commandments of God, living a life of obedience.  Don’t allow yourself to be turned away from Jesus by allowing the world to seduce you.  Choose Jesus. Choose everlasting life.  Don’t be left behind.  Embrace all things that are of God according to His word…the Bible.  Take the “good way of living.”

Traditions of Men: Have the blinders of society blinded you?

Traditions of men are norms of society adopted by people living as they choose as opposed to living according to the commandments of God.  When people follow traditions of men, they live as they want and according to what is accepted by society rather than living according to the word of God and His commandments.  Traditions of men are those norms which are contrary to the word of God.  They are followed with somewhat of a twisted self-justification that it is “okay” because it is “society’s way.”  

However, there is only one way; God’s way.  God’s way is the truth; the word of God as provided to us in the bible.  Jesus stated in Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?  and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”  

Reevaluate yourself and how you are living.  Remove the blinders.  Wake up.  Depart from your iniquity.  Many of the things occurring in society today can be likened unto the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.  God wiped out those in those days during the flood, but said He wouldn’t do that again.  In Isaiah 54:9, God said, “For this is as the waters of Noah unto me:  for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.” Instead, God gives us the free will to choose:  choose life or choose death.  Choose life by choosing Jesus as your Lord and Savior; living your life according to God’s commandments.  Choose death by living a life of sin with traditions of men and iniquity; failing to live a life of obedience to God’s commandments.

1 John 2:15-17 says, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all this is in the world, the lusts of the flesh, and the lusts of the eyes, and the  pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  And the world passeth away, and the lusts thereof:  but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.”  Don’t be blinded!  Choose life everlasting.
