This Glorious Season

Christ - MangerAhhhh… the sounds and lights of Christmas. The hustle and bustle, to and fro. Rushing around to make sure everything is ready for the festivities. It is so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of advertising and miss the true meaning of Christmas.

For many people, Christmas is a time of sorrow and great stress. They don’t have the extra money to buy presents for their children, family, and friends. Many are saddened when they think of the loved ones who will not be able to come home for various reasons. Christmas dinners may only be a wish and not a reality for some as poverty runs rampant.

However, Christmas should have an incredible meaning for believers and should be a season of great joy. It is a time of God showing His great love for us. It can be a special time filled with healing and renewed strength. Christmas is a beautiful celebration of Christ’s birth. God sending His only Son Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the excitement of knowing about this great event. They knew this was no ordinary baby as the prophets had told of His coming hundreds of years beforehand. And when the bright star stopped over Bethlehem to mark the way for those who were looking for this special child’s arrival, they all knew history was being made on this very special day.

In a manger long ago, a child was born who showed the world the path to peace and love of mankind. Today, it still begins with a single, loving action that ripples into the very spirit of Christmas. So whether you’re with family, alone or in difficult situations, you can still embrace and rejoice during this glorious season. It doesn’t matter what you can give…what matters is that He came this day to be born our Lord and Savior! Celebrate with all your heart and watch Him do the most amazing things in your life. I pray that you experience God’s amazing love, strength and peace during this joyous time of year!

Merry Christmas Tree and Stars

Tis the Season to Shine Brightly

ChristmasWith all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season, it is easy to get lost and bogged down in all the trappings. With the emphasis of buying the right gifts, putting up decorations, and having family gatherings; there is no wonder why so many people become stressed, worried, and exhausted at this time of the year. They find themselves filled with depression, grief, and sorrow. Some may even have thoughts of suicide, from the feelings of being all alone. If they are having financial difficulties, it compounds the whole “gift giving” pressure ten-fold. So, how can we help our fellow man?

Spread the true reason for the season by sharing God’s amazing love. God has given every single one of us a unique skill or talent. Maybe you love painting, baking, couponing, music or maybe you are a talented financial wizard or organizer that gets things done. Maybe you have a bubbly personality that is infectious. Whatever your talent, God can use it in the most remarkable ways to shed a glimmer of hope upon someone else.

Proverbs 16:24 says that “pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the mind and healing to the body.” Just by a small act of kindness, saying hello with a smile, could mean the world of difference to someone battling depression. Holding a door open could show an act of kindness. You never know what kind of day that person has had or the thoughts they are thinking; you just might be their only glimpse of love.

God wants us all to shine our lights brightly towards others. We are blessed to be a blessing. It doesn’t matter how small the act is…what matters is the impact on the other side. God will always use your talents for the right person, in the Jesus people seeexact moment it is needed. God knows what that person is going through and what they desperately need. By allowing Him to use you in these small acts of kindness, He will make the most incredible impact on their lives.

Always remember that “it is more blessed to give than to receive”.  (Acts 20:13) There is absolutely nothing more rewarding than a heart filled with the excitement of knowing you touched someone today. You just might be their only glimpse of hope in a very dark world.

So, SHINE YOUR LIGHT on all those you come in contact with today. For you just might start the most amazing chain of events that impacts them so deeply; that their life will never be the same.

Are You Ready For The Truth?

There are so many Christians, true followers of Christ our Lord and Savior, that feel lost. They have been bombarded with false doctrine and don’t even realize it. They have prayed, fasted and done all they could for their breakthroughs, yet nothing seems to change.

Today’s word is one of warning and truth. It’s being written with love for all those who have suffered greatly and have not seen the miracles they desperately need.

Right now on the world stage, God is bringing truth and light out of the darkness. You’re seeing pastors being arrested for sexual abuse. You’re seeing satanic symbols in church buildings. Sunday mornings have become more of a theater & lighting show than gospel being spoke. You’re hearing of satanic worship that goes beyond any comprehension. And yes, unfortunately we’re hearing that some pastors, actors, singers, politicians and media are a part of it. I can tell you that I’ve been shocked as things are being exposed. Once your eyes are opened, you start picking up all the signs that have been there all along. It’s quite disheartening. Then you start hearing bits and pieces about the clergy response teams and what that truly entails. There is so much we simply haven’t known and now it’s being brought to the center stage. This isn’t an easy word to write because we’ve been deceived for so long and it is imperative that Christians wake up, repent and turn back to the One True God.

For years Christians have been going to church, tithing and asking for prayer only to find themselves broke, busted and disgusted. They believe God’s Word and wholeheartedly have done all the right things they’ve been taught. They’ve gone to church, been faithful in their giving but all they see is deeper debt while the megachurch pastors are living extravagant lifestyles. Something is amiss here when wealthy pastors aren’t willing to even give food to those in need unless they fill out massive paperwork and get the pastor’s authorization. This completely misses the mark.

Does God want us prosperous? Absolutely! There’s nothing wrong with that. However, we are to be prosperous so we can help others. Period! Did Jesus ask for a tithe to heal? Did Jesus ask how much you can pay for a breakthrough? NO! Jesus just wanted to know if you believed in Him and that He could do all that you’ve asked.

I truly believe we are in the beginning stages of home congregations where real believers in Christ will come together, pray together, help one another and truly be there for each other. If one person is having a tough time, then all those in the home group gather to help. That is the real meaning of worship. It’s not a building, it’s not a rock star lifestyle…it’s a love for one another, lending a helping hand while worshiping and giving thanks to the Lord. It’s the people that make a “church” not a building!

God is starting to reveal many things about those in high positions, those in religious settings and the truth that will set us free. It will be our choice to either listen or turn a blind eye to it. There are going to be some very difficult things shown to us that I believe will rock us deeply. Will we be ready for God’s truth? Are we willing to let go of what we think or have been taught in order to follow the real truth.

God’s heart is for all to be saved. Unfortunately there will be many who will not want to let go of their current lifestyle, repent and turn back to the One True God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. Will you be willing?

This is a very deep conversation with many more aspects to be revealed as God sheds light on them. I highly recommend listening to the message below. It’s an honest, upfront discussion of what’s really happening in our world today. We don’t need to be afraid. God is in control and He’ll continue protecting, loving and guiding us. However we truly need to be ready for what will be exposed and know the true gospel without all the hype.

It’s happening quickly and seems to be accelerating. For those of us who love the Lord and want to do His will for our lives…we need to be ready to help others understand when it hits the fan. God has had enough and He’s exposing much. People are going to be devastated as they come to realize that those they trusted the most have actually betrayed and done despicable things in order to keep their money & status. It will be hard to swallow and we’re already seeing people run away from the “church”. The hurt and confusion is real. None of this has ever been exposed before and our eyes are being opened. This is world wide so all of us need to ban together, love one another and be ready to love those who start seeing the truth revealed.

Please don’t take our word for it. Pray and do your own research. We are living in very exciting yet disturbing times. God is doing a massive awakening around the world.

With the Christmas season upon us, may we all take time to reflect what Jesus really accomplished with His ministry, death and resurrection. It is because of Him we are called brothers and sisters; children of the Most High God. Be loving this holiday season, pray as a family and give thanks for HIM. He is truly the reason for Christmas and we all have an amazing destiny that is ready to be birthed.

Sending you all many wonderful Christmas blessings. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

Is Your Mind Made Up?

If it’s been a long-hard journey, it’s very easy to let doubt seep in. BUT GOD IS NOT A LIAR AND HIS WORD WILL NOT RETURN VOID! (Isaiah 55:11)

Heart vs. Words

What words have you spoken? Do you believe what you speak? Have you been asking God to help but your heart is not really believing it can happen? Are you speaking God’s word over your situations but not really expecting things to change?

With the Thanksgiving season upon us, it’s time for a real heart checkup; where we need to get real with ourselves to determine the root cause of our situations and why things are remaining the same. It’s not to beat yourself up or to point fingers, this is truly to examine ourselves so we can grow to give without expecting things in return. God is a Good Father and sees all things. He wants you happy, whole, living from a love perspective and succeeding. But with pastors of today, we are being taught to give in order to get. That puts us out of alignment with our Heavenly Father. How can He honor our giving if we have ulterior motives?

With such an amazing holiday season upon us, take a moment and listen to this eye-opening word from Brother Eli. Listen with an open-heart, be true with yourself and allow God to help you modify anything that needs to be changed. God wants so much for you and your family. Don’t miss this moment to get right with God and to do things His way. He sees all and nothing you do will go unnoticed.

With much love, may you and yours have a very wonderful holiday season.
