Worship the Lord.

Worship the Lord.

Listen to: “Worship the Lord.”

October 23, 2014

The Lord desires the praise of his people. God has been good to you. I know life has been hard, but God has been good to you. And it’s important to remember that you need to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth. Jesus said, the father seeks those who would worship him truly.

If you notice around the world, you see religions where people constantly do things because it’s “religion.” God is not looking for religious people, God is looking for those who would truly worship him in spirit and in truth. God is not looking for those who want to walk through a series of regulations.

Throughout the Bible, the Scripture reminds us that God would like you to be his friend. In fact, the Scripture says Abraham was called the friend of God. Jesus said, I do not call you slaves, but I call you friends. A Scripture in the Old Testament, that is beautiful to me, Moses spoke to the Lord in the doorway of his tent as a man would speak to his friend.

God wants you to worship him in spirit and in truth. That simply means it’s a true relationship. You’re not doing things by memory, you’re not doing things out of regulation, but you truly have a strong relationship with the Lord. Jesus said, my sheep know my voice, and a stranger they will not follow.

When you truly know the Lord, praise and worship will come easily to you. It’s not hard. It’s not difficult. You will want to praise the Lord for his goodness to you. And don’t forget this, the Scripture says “God inhabits the praises of his people.” that’s from the book of Psalms. So when you praise the Lord, you’re going to drive the devil crazy.

So on this podcast, let’s talk about praise and worship. Real praise. Real worship. From the heart.

We Shall Wear a Crown.

We Will Have a Crown of Glory Because of Jesus

Listen to “We Shall Wear a Crown.”

October 22,2014

The Lord is going to give you a crown of righteousness. You might say what have I done to receive the crown of righteousness? Well, actually, you have not done anything. You simply believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Bible says, “He that knew no sin was made to be sin for us, that we would be made the righteousness of God in him.” Jesus is all our righteousness. He is the one that gives you righteousness. And he will also give you a crown of righteousness.

The apostle Paul said, I fought a good fight, I finished my course, henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, that the Lord God will give to me at that day and not only to me, but to all of those who love his appearing. So you can stand and wait and believe the Lord for your crown of righteousness.

And when you receive the crown of righteousness, do you know what you will do when you get to heaven? The Bible says you will throw your crown before the Lord Jesus Christ and at his feet. What a joy that will be. You will be able to throw your crown at the feet of the Lord. This is the way you will give him glory and honor and praise. Because he loves you, you will be able to cast your crown at his feet.

There’s an old song that says, we shall wear a robe and crown. And we truly will. The book of Revelation talks about robes of white and crowns of glory. We will be with Jesus forever and forever. so don’t forget, you’ve got a crown of righteousness waiting for you in glory all because of what Jesus has done for you.

Keep His Commandments.

10 commandments

We Still Keep
The Commands of Jesus

Listen to: “Keep His Commandments.”

October 21, 2014

The Lord would have you to keep his commandments. There are some things that God will do for you. And then there are some things you need to do for God. For instance, you need to keep the faith.

The Scripture says without faith it is impossible to please him, for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he will reward those who diligently seek him. So it’s important to “keep the faith.”

The Lord will keep you in the hollow of his hand but you must remember to never let him go. Jesus said he that comes to me, I will never cast you out. But don’t you walk away from the Lord. You keep up your walk with the Lord. Yes, there are some things that we keep. That means we do them.

The Scripture says whoever looks in the perfect law of liberty and he being not a forgetful here, but a doer of the work, this man will be blessed in his deed. The key is to keep his commandments. Jesus said if you love me, keep my commandments.

In the book of John Jesus said, “Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of him.”

Jesus says, I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. This is a commandment that we should always keep. That we should love one another. The word of God sister the book of Ephesians, be kind, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ sake Has Forgiven you.

Yes, there are some things in the Bible that we have to do. The Lord does so much for us. But he does ask us to keep his commandments and they are not grievous. On this podcast, I’ll be teaching about the commandments of the Lord.

He Will Comfort You.

Jesus Will Comfort You.

Listen to: “God will comfort you.”

October 18, 2014.

The Lord wants to be your comforter. Have you ever gone through a difficult time and you just want someone to help you and give you comfort? Well, Jesus said I will not lead you comfortless. I will come to you. The Holy Ghost is called the “the comforter.” He will comfort you in the time of need.

The Bible also says, blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ who comforts us in all of our tribulation, that we may comfort those who are in any trouble, with the same comfort we ourselves have been comforted of God.

That was a long bible verse. Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ who comforts us. Yes, God will comfort you first. When you go through tribulation trial, God is going to bring you comfort. And then with the comfort that you have received, you can help those who are in any trouble.

This is why the Bible says “with the same comfort we ourselves have been comforted of God.” In other words, you can pass it along. What God blesses you and comfort your heart, you can also help others that are in any trouble. You can say to them, “God helped me, and I know he will help you through this difficult trial.”

On this podcast, I want remind you that in your darkest hour, God is listening to your cries and he knows your pain. The Scripture says that he that formed the ear, will he not hear? and the one that is formed the eye, will he not see? God knows and God cares. And he is going to comfort you in this time of trouble.

God Will Help You.

The Lord Is
Your Helper

Listen to “God Will Help You.”

October 17, 2014

The Lord will help you. The Scripture says the Lord is the ever present help, in the time of trouble. Do you face trouble? Do you you face hardship? It’s time to call upon the Lord. The Bible also says if you call upon the Lord you will not be put to shame.

In the book of Hebrews we are reminded that the Lord says let us come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need. Yes, there is grace to help you in the time of need. Whatever your need might be. The grace of God will see you through. Perhaps you need money or you need a healing in your body. Trust in the grace of the Lord.

Again, let us come boldly unto the throne of grace. That we can obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need. Go boldly to the throne of grace. God is waiting on you to come before him and make your need known. He is merciful and He will help you.

When Moses saw the Lord, Moses cried out, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious long-suffering and abundant in goodness and truth.”  The Lord does not want to condemn you. The Scripture says from the book of John, for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever would believe in him would not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved.

God is not looking to condemn you. But he wants to help you.

On this podcast I want to remind you that God is the ever present help in the time of trouble. King David said, I will look and the hills from whence comes my help, my help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.
