The Kiss

Standard

“Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss.” 1 Thess 5:2

We should greet everyone we meet with a ‘kiss’. Maybe not necessarily with our lips but definately with our attitude!

When we first meet someone we have the opportunity to bless them or leave them feeling ordinary.

We ‘kiss’ people when we enjoy them, are interested in them, smile at them, welcome them, introduce them to others, remember their name & interesting things about them, congratulate them & give to them rather than take from them.

Greet people with a ‘kiss’ today!

See you in Church!

The devourer

Standard

” Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

Keeping a cool head, being aware & awake & not intoxicated with anything of this like enables us to avoid being ‘devoured’. Jesus seeks people to save. The devil seeks people to destroy.

Malachi 3:11 tells us that when we bring ‘ALL’ the tithes into the storehouse (God’s House), that He will rebuke the ‘devourer’. When we don’t bring the tithe to God we leave the door open to the devourer.

WHen we do bring the tithe to God, He rebukes the devourer – whenever Jesus rebuked something it was defeated. He rebuked winds & waves, demons… When He rebukes the devourer, the devil is vanquished!!

This is the message

Standard

“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5

What is the “Message” – This is the message  – ‘God is light’ – This means we need to bring a message that brightens peoples lives. Light gives color,m guidance, warmth, life. We can see & be seen. This means God is positive, not negative, not dark.

In fact, in God, there is no darkness at all, no negativity, no unbelief, doubt or cynicism… but rather He is ‘LIGHT’.

We heard this from Jesus. When people think they are ‘hearing’ from God & they bring fear & despair they are wrong. They purpose of Johns statement is so we can tell what message is from God & what is not. We are to ‘declare’ that God gives hope, faith & love. This is the message!

See you in Church!

Open Door

Standard

“After these things I looked, and behold a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” Revelation 4:1

John was possibly close to 90 years old at this time but he still ‘looked’ – He still had ‘vision’ for the future. Whatever we have been through we can never afford to lose our vision. Vision is oxygen to our spirit.

He sees an open door in heaven. What happens in heaven manifests on earth. If you can see something in the invisible realm, eventually it will manifest in the visible realm.

Who is the first voice in your life? who do you go to before all others, above all others. His voice resonates with our spirit. Other voices will be ringing wrong in our soul.

God always intends to elevate you in life, to take you higher. Getting a vision from God is way more important than getting your own vision. We get His vision for our lives when we surrender our whole life to Him to do ‘whatever’ He wants!
