God’s First Aid Kit!

If there was a medicine that was guaranteed to cure whatever ails you, would you be interested? Of course you would, or at least you should be interested! Wouldn’t that be a great asset in your First Aid Kit? Not only that, you could actually share it with others if needed.

Well, I have good news for you. There is such a medicine/remedy that will do just that – cure anything that ails you. It’s the Word of God! I think you figured that out already but let me elaborate.

God’s Word actually guarantees results but with one condition: you must believe it and act on it. Your faith in God’s Word determines whether or not you’ll get His results. Most people think they can just shoot up a prayer and hope it sticks. But if it doesn’t produce the right results, they conclude that it wasn’t God’s will in the first place. That’s a bald-faced lie!

It’s always God’s will to answer every prayer prayed in faith, especially healing because it’s already been paid for. I Pet. 2:24 tells us that when Jesus went to the cross to bear our sins, He also paid the price for our complete healing. Isa 53:4-5 also bears this out, as well as Matt. 8:17.

Then, dear brothers and sisters, we have Isa 54:17, Ps.91, Gen. 1:28, and Mark 11:23-24. What more do we need to show us that God is on our side but we have our part to do. Heb.11:6 says that we need faith to please God. He has already given it to us but we have to step out and use it. We actually activate God’s healing power by our faith. [See the scriptures regarding the woman with the issue of blood – Mark 5:25-34.]

I’ve written a lot about healing but suffice it to say that we need to build our “first aid” arsenal before the devil attacks so that when it happens, the first words out of our mouths are God’s Words – no weapon formed against me shall prosper!

We, above all people of the earth, are blessed beyond measure but we either don’t know it or refuse to believe it. It’s time for the body of Christ to start walking in their inheritance. The world needs to see the manifest presence of the Lord in and on us so that they will want what we have. But if we look and act no differently than they do, what is it that they’ll want? It’s the goodness of God that brings people to repentance. Let’s go for it!

Romans 2:4b (KJV) 4  …  that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Isaiah 53:4-5 (KJV) 4  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Matthew 8:17 (KJV) 17  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Genesis 1:28 (KJV) 28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Mark 11:23-24 (KJV) 23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Proverbs 4:20-22 (KJV)
20  My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Romans 12:3b (KJV) 3  …  according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Mark 5:25-34 (KJV) 25  And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,

What is Eternal Life?

Every Christian has heard of eternal life and that getting saved gives it to you, right? But really, what exactly is eternal life? As usual, we’ll go to God’s Word to find out since eternal life comes from Him.

If you ask many Christians, they’ll probably say that eternal life is living forever with God in Heaven. Yes, this is true but there’s so much more.

John 17:3 (KJV) 3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
1 John 5:20 (KJV) 20  And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

As you can see, according to the above scriptures, eternal life means knowing God the Father and Jesus Christ His Son. But what we want to know is how we get it.

We get eternal life the moment we’re born again- not when we go to Heaven. If you’re born-again, you’re in eternal life right now and to the degree that you know God and the Lord Jesus, that’s the degree to which you can enjoy this rich God-like life.

Eternal means: everlasting, immortal, perpetual, ceaseless

Know means: to know absolutely, perceive, understand

Yes, this is what we have now and we’ll have it forever and ever throughout all eternity. The immortal part is that we’ll live forever with the Lord. Even though your physical body dies, your spirit – the real you – will live forever with the Lord. We can actually have a taste of Heaven on earth while we’re here! And we’ll get our glorified bodies later.

Eternal life is more than just living forever. It’s living the victorious life that God has for you right now on planet earth. We are to know our Father God love Him with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. Just thinking about that this me know that it’ll take all eternity to really know God!

God has so much for us and He’s provided all that we’ll ever need while we’re on planet earth. He wants us to have Heaven on earth!

Deuteronomy 11:21 (KJV) 21  That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
Deuteronomy 30:19 (KJV) 19  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Luke 10:25-27 (KJV) 25  And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
26   He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
27  And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

2 Peter 1:3-4 (KJV)
3  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Deuteronomy 28:1-14 (KJV)

Is the Message Diluted by Your Delivery?

This blog might seem opposite of the last one but it’s really not. Too many times, in our endeavor to get people turned on to God’s word and His way of doing things, we have the opposite effect on the ones we’re ministering to.

So many times when we’re talking to people and they’re telling us their problems, we know that God has the answer and in our zeal, we blurt it out without considering how it comes across. Sometimes not so good. And here’s the problem: no matter what the truth is that we’re sharing, we need to do it in love. The deliver is so important because if we come across as obnoxious or know-it-all, and they don’t receive it because of us, we have failed. It’s not only what you say (the truth) but also how you say it.

Once you offend someone, it becomes more difficult to get their ear next time. Yes, we, as born-again, Bible believing, Spirit-filled Christians have answers for people in need but if we’re going to reach them, we need to practice and pay attention to our delivery.

The Gospel is the Good News and we need to present it that way. The world has had all the bad news they can stand and since we’re the ones with the Good News, it behooves us to walk in love and let the Word of God and His love shine through us!

Be sure to let the Holy Spirit lead and guide you when presenting your message. You can’t beat people up with the scriptures as if they should already know them. Be gentle but firm and let your sincere convection show forth. Many are watching to see if you actually believe what you’re telling them to believe.

D. L. Moody once said that we should preach the gospel everywhere we go, in everything we do, and to everyone we meet, and if need be, use words! I think you get the message. People are watching our actions, not just our words. Be aware of this and let the Holy Spirit lead you.

Colossians 4:6 (KJV) 6  Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
Colossians 3:15 (KJV) 15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Is Your Fire Still Burning Hot?

Are you still on fire for the Lord or have you dwindled to smoldering embers? In Rev. 2:4 Jesus tells the Ephesian Church that they’ve left their first love and they need to repent and get back on track.

Revelation 2:4 (KJV)
4  Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

What does it mean to leave your first love? What does Jesus mean? Let me give you a “skin and bones” example.

Go back to the time when you first got saved and how on fire you were! Remember how you wanted to tell everyone you met what Jesus had done for you? I remember!

Not only that, the love of God just oozed out of you because of your new found love for Jesus. But, down the road, life got in the way and maybe you got so busy that the Lord was no longer #1 in your life: the Word didn’t come first, talking and communicating with God didn’t come first, seeking God’s plans for your life didn’t come first. It seemed that everything else had challenged the #1 slot and won!

So, I ask you, does this sound like you or are you still on fire for God and radically in love with Jesus? Are your prayers working to the max like they did when you first got saved and made Jesus your Savior and Lord?

Too many times I have observed Christians who have made Jesus their Savior but not their Lord. They want what He offers but don’t want Him messing with their lives and their plans.

Oh, my dear brothers and sisters, what a shallow way to live because it puts us in the position of being beggars instead of walking in the fullness of what God has promised us – living a life worth living on planet earth and bringing glory to the Name of Jesus.

How many of you truly want to walk in the goodness and blessing that the Lord has for you? Probably all of you! Well, let me tell you unequivocally, that the Lord wants this for you more than you even do! In fact, He has already given us all His promises. We don’t need to ask, beg, or coerce Him into giving what He’s already given. Our part is to receive by faith what He’s already freely given by His immeasurable grace.

I encourage you to do a self-inventory and check where your heart is. Have you left your first love or are you still on fire for Jesus?

After 50 years of walking with the Lord, I am still as much and even more radical in my love for the Lord and His Word than I’ve ever been! So go for it and live that victorious life God has for you!

Deuteronomy 28:1-14 (KJV)

Are You Half Full of Half Empty?

The difference between being half full or half empty is the same as the difference between an optimist and a pessimist. The glass is filled to the half-way mark in each case but the optimist sees it as half full while the pessimist sees it as half empty. One is positive and the other is negative. It’s all a matter of perspective.

The same thing happens in life on planet earth. The way you look at somethings affects your attitude toward it and that in turn affects your actions. Our perspective is so important because it determines what we do and how we respond to a given situation. Let me give you an example.

You’re out for a walk and unbeknown to you there’s a ledge close to the walk-way and you catch your foot and fall. Hearing a popping sound, you know something broke. So what do you do? If you’re in tune with the Lord, His Word comes out of your mouth immediately – no weapon formed against me shall prosper… [Isa. 54:17].

Now what do you do? [Remember the perspective.] Instead of getting all upset because of what just happened, you focus on the solution and how God is going to turn this whole situation around for a testimony of His goodness! Now that’s the half full attitude.

Of course, on the other hand… I think you know what the other hand could be – negative, negative, negative!

Brothers and sisters, we are so blessed as the people of God because we know (or we should know) that no matter what obstacle the enemy throws at us, God always has the solution – and it’s the one that works!

And if you’re wondering – why did this happen in the first place because I pray for God’s protection, here are some answers. Think of what could have happened if you hadn’t prayed! We live in a fallen world and satan is the god of this world, out to rob, kill, and destroy but Jesus came to give us an abundant life [John 10:10]. We are the ones with the authority over the devil and we have to exercise our authority, bind and resist him, and he will flee because Jesus said he would.

God is faithful, faithful, faithful! Let’s keep our eyes and focus on the Lord, His Word, and His way of doing things and we’ll always come out a winner!

PS. – The hardest part of dealing with a situation such as I described above is the flesh part – your feelings, emotions, and your mind running rampant. But when you get past that and back onto your faith, look out because victory is right there!

Isaiah 54:17a (KJV) 17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. 

Psalm 91:10-11 (KJV) 10  There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Genesis 1:28 (KJV) 28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
James 4:7 (KJV) 7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 Peter 5:8 (KJV) 8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Matthew 18:18 (KJV) 18  Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Hebrews 13:8 (KJV) 8  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
1 Corinthians 1:9 (KJV) 9  God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Based on What?

Are you basing what you believe about God on what someone else believes? This is dangerous! We have to base our beliefs about God on what He has said about Himself in the Word. Makes sense – right?

Let me give you a nuts and bolts example. Have you ever met someone and thought, “They’re not at all what I thought they would be!” Sometimes it’s a good thing and sometimes not so good. But either way, it wasn’t what you had thought based on what you had already heard about that person from someone else.

It’s the same way with God. Too many people have preconceived ideas about just Who God is and what He will or will not do, and they base their whole lives on this premise, be it right or wrong.

That, dear brothers and sisters, is what I think keeps many Christians from enjoying the fullness of what God has ordained for them to walk in. We must go to God’s Word and find out how loving, kind, gracious, and forgiving our Heavenly Father is and then maybe, just maybe, we can make a quality decision to actually believe Him and walk in the goodness that He has for us.

If you only believe about God because of other people’s ideas, it won’t wash. We have to go to God’s Word, read, study, and start to walk in His ways if we’re ever going to enjoy the life worth living that He has for us. We are His people, ordained to walk in His fullness but it’s our choice if we ever do. God will not make us do anything due to the fact that He has given us a free will to make our own choices. And we have a choice to do it- right or wrong.

Deuteronomy 30:19 (KJV) 19  I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

There’s no one in the whole world Who has been so maligned as God our Father, our Lord Jesus, and the precious Holy Spirit. We need to change this so that the unsaved will run to us to find out how to have a personal relationship with our God, the Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and forfeit their destination to hell and replace it with a one-way ticket to Heaven!

Here are a few scriptures to get you started:

1 John 4:8 (KJV) 8  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
1 John 3:1 (KJV) 1  Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
John 14:27 (KJV) 27  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:12 (KJV) 12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
1 John 5:14-15 (KJV) 14  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15  And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

John 17:11b (KJV)11  …. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

The Blame Game!

Oh me, oh my! The Blame Game – something we know all too well! It seems to be everyone’s fault but ours and why not—it started in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve.

Remember when God asked them, “Who told you that you were naked? Did you eat of the forbidden tree?” And what did they say? They started accusing each other and even God!

Genesis 3:9-13 (KJV)
9  And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10  And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11  And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12  And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13  And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Each one want to blame someone else rather than accept responsibility for their own action. That’s what many people do today. This is called pride. Remember the “I” in the middle? It’s all about me, me, me! What about me? Pride is being self-centered and God resists the proud.

James 4:6 (KJV) 6  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
1 Peter 5:5b (KJV) 5  …  for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

To resist means to actively fight against. And who wants God actively fighting against them?

Pride has so many offshoots: unforgiveness, strife, contention, murmuring, grumbling, complaining, root of bitterness, and many more. These are deadly offshoots of pride and can literally destroy us. Let me give you some scriptures.

Proverbs 13:10a (KJV) 10  Only by pride cometh contention:   
1 Corinthians 3:3 (KJV) 3  For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
James 3:16 (KJV) 16  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

1 Corinthians 10:10 (KJV) 10  Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

Hebrews 12:15 (KJV) 15  Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
Hebrews 12:15 (AMP) 15  Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look [after one another], to see that no one falls back from and fails to secure God’s grace (His unmerited favor and spiritual blessing), in order that no root of resentment (rancor, bitterness, or hatred) shoots forth and causes trouble and bitter torment, and the many become contaminated and defiled by it—

What makes this root of bitterness so evil is that it eventually contaminates those around you. It comes from letting unforgiveness and strife and contention fester in you and just keep building and building ’til it erupts like a dormant volcano and many are hurt.

The sad thing about this root of bitterness erupting is that many times it causes such contention that it can last for years and even have family wars over it. It’s deadly in every sense of the word. Avoid it like the plague! Remember the Hatfields and the Mccoys! [1863-1891]

When we think about all that the Lord has so graciously forgiven us of, we don’t have a leg to stand on in holding unforgiveness against anyone else. James tells us that if we mess up in one area, we’re guilty of all.

James 2:10 (KJV)
10  For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Who can honestly say that they’ve never sinned or even had a bad thought? No one! We’re all in need of God’s forgiveness and we need to extend that to others. Besides, we don’t forgive for the other’s person’s sake. We forgive for our sake so that it’s not held against us and we don’t reap the evil we’ve been sowing.

Forgiveness is simply choosing to let it go and not hold a grudge. It has nothing to do with who’s right or wrong. It’s a heart issue so keep your heart right before God.

Repent and speak crop failure to those negative seeds you’ve sown and thank the Lord for His total forgiveness. Now you can continue living the victorious life He has had for you all along – one of peace and joy!

John 14:27 (KJV) 27  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Protecting Our Children & Loved Ones

As summer’s end draws closer, thoughts turn to the new school year and all the adventures it offers to each student, whether young or college age. And, yes, there are even adults who will be pursuing higher education this year.

However, along with the excitement of the new school year, comes the question on parents’ minds of how to ensure the safety of their children, given the tragedies of past decades. I hope to encourage you in this area.

Although I have prepared an extensive teaching on this matter, I have seriously tried to condense my message for this blog. So here goes.

First of all, God has so graciously provided all the protection we will ever need on planet earth and all His promises to us are YES! That puts us in good standing. But, then there’s our part. Even though God has provided, if we don’t do our part to partake of His provision, we won’t be any better off than unsaved people.

Every promise of God must be received by faith because faith is the way we access the power of God. And remember, faith doesn’t change God. He doesn’t need changing. Faith appropriates what God has already given. If He’s given it, then we can believe for it to manifest in our lives.  

So, here’s what I suggest: pray the Word daily with your children and loved ones and even when they’re not home. Don’t just shoot up a prayer and hope it sticks. Pray with purpose!

Pray:

1 – Isaiah 54:17 (KJV) 17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

2 – Psalm 91:10-11 (KJV) 10  There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

3 – Pray the entire Psalm 91.

4 – Declare your dominion over the devil and his evil works arrayed against you and your children in the Name of Jesus – the Name above all names!

Philippians 2:9-11 (KJV) 9  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Genesis 1:28 (KJV)
28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

5 – Plead (apply) the Blood of Jesus over your loved ones daily.

6 – Pray in your prayer language (tongues) daily over your loved ones. We don’t know everything about every situation and praying in tongues gets right to the root of the situation. It’s praying the perfect prayer for every situation.

7 – Stand on  Mark 11:23-24 (KJV) 23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

8 – Don’t worry because worry is fear and fear will negate – cancel – your faith-filled prayers.

One more thing. The promises of God are not automatic. Yes, they’ve been freely given to us but we must do the receiving. Use your faith and lock onto the promises of God and don’t let go. God is faithful, faithful, faithful and watches over His Word to perform it in your life!

Jeremiah 1:12 (AMP) 12  Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.
2 Chronicles 16:9a (KJV) 9  For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. 

2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV)
20  For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

Why on Earth are We Here?<

Have you ever wondered why we’re here? What’s the deal with all this earth stuff? Well, I have. Before I was born-again, those thoughts occurred to me and I pondered them quietly but didn’t arrive at any conclusion. Now I know and I’m going to share that with you.

First of all, we have to go back to the beginning – at least our beginning- to the time of Adam and Eve. Here we see that they walked and talked with God, communing with Him daily. That’s fellowship and that’s God’s desire and heart – to fellowship and commune with Him. He loves us and wants to spend time with us. Wow! And we thought our job was to work ourselves to the bone doing good works to impress Him and be acceptable to Him. Not so.

Let me say that there’s a difference between relationship with God and fellowship with Him. Jesus bought and paid the price so we could get back into relationship with God. That’s a done deal. Our part is to accept and receive what He did. We can’t make it any better or worse. It’s already done and accepted by the High Court of Heaven.

Then there’s fellowship with our Heavenly Father. That means walking, talking, and communicating with Him – daily, all day long. And I might add, fellowship is a two-way street. He talks, we listen. We talk, He listens. But in reality, most people talk and don’t give God equal time!

So we see that fellowship with our Father, the Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit is our main purpose in life. But there’s more. God has a plan for each of us that is wonderful beyond measure. We need to seek Him and find out what that plan is and then line up with Him and fulfill it. We actually fellowship with God by getting into His Word because God and His Word are One. That’s how we get to Him.

John 1:1 (KJV) 1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:14 (KJV) 14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

One of the general things God has for us is seeking Him in all we do. You see, His eyes go to and fro throughout the whole earth looking and looking for those who will believe His Word, speak His Word, and give Him access to moving in their lives on that word. That’s awesome!

Yes, there’s a lot more to living on planet and serving God, but this should be a good starting point for you. Praise the Lord for His goodness to us!

1 John 1:3-4 (KJV) 3  That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
4  And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

Philippians 2:1 (KJV)
1  If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,

Matthew 6:33-34 (KJV) 33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

2 Chronicles 16:9 (KJV) 9  For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
Proverbs 4:20-27 (KJV) 20  My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23  Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
24  Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
25  Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
26  Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
27  Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

Hebrews 13:5b (KJV) 5  …  I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

How Would You Like to Experience Heaven on Earth?

Deuteronomy 11:21 (KJV) 21  That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

Is this really possible? Well, probably not exactly, but very close because Heaven’s perfect and earth is not. Plus there’s no enemy in Heaven so there’s no resistance to the love and peace and awesomeness of God!

However, there are several scriptures that will lead us to experience pretty close to having Heaven on earth. Let’s look at some.

Genesis 1:28 (KJV) 28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV) 21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
1 Peter 3:10 (KJV) 10  For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
Psalm 34:12-14 (KJV) 12  What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13  Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14  Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.  

At any one point in life, we’re either speaking life or speaking death. How can that be, you ask. Because words are containers and carry your very thoughts when spoken. You’re either speaking words in live with what God says or you’re speaking negative words, non-productive words in line with the devil. It’s your choice. The problem lies in the fact that most of the world is going the wrong way and speaking wrong things that give the devil access to their lives. And because we hear those things so often, we seem to get in the flow so easily, not know that it’s hurting us and even killing us!

All you need to do is on purpose listen to the voices around – your family, friends, media, and yourself. You’ll be appalled at how much negativity is being spoken: that pain is killing me; I thought I’d die; do you know it’s flu season, allergy season, cold season; when we get a certain age, things just begin to fall apart; and on and on they go! And here’s a really bad one – that cracks me up! Don’t say that unless you want to crack up! Your words are seeds. Only plant good ones!

How about this one – I’m on a fixed income! If you keep saying that, you limit what God can do in your finances because He won’t override your free will. And if you believe in our heart and confess with your mouth that you’re on a fixed income, that’s what you’ll get.

Brothers and sisters, if you want to have days of Heaven on earth, you need to get your mouth in gear and say what God’s Word says. Meditate the scriptures I’ve given and let God speak to you and your best days ever can be ahead of you!

If our confession is no better than that of unsaved people, who’s going to want what we have. Get back on track with the Lord and let His goodness shine through you. Jesus already paid the price – now enjoy the benefits!

James 4:7 (KJV) 7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 Peter 5:8 (KJV) 8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Philippians 1:27-28 (KJV) 27  Only let your conversation [lifestyle] be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
28  And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.

Philippians 1:28 (AMP) 28  And do not [for a moment] be frightened or intimidated in anything by your opponents and adversaries, for such [constancy and fearlessness] will be a clear sign (proof and seal) to them of [their impending] destruction, but [a sure token and evidence] of your deliverance and salvation, and that from God.
