JESUS our bright star

God’s plan was and is perfect in every way; and it was all set in motion before the creation.
The Bible is a ledger of fulfillments. Everything in the Bible is a fulfillment of what God willed to happen. The Old Testament is a testimony of what God did before sending Jesus. The Gospels are a Testimony of what Jesus did while here and the New Testament is a testimony about the growth of the church, and how we should act and live as believers.

Did you know that when God hung the stars in the sky, He used them as a testimony of the life of Jesus? From His birth of a virgin, to the lion of Judah with His heel on the neck of the serpent in the end. God is in such complete control that He has written the entire story of Jesus in the stars. So how do we picture Jesus? Some see Him as a babe in the manger; others see Him as the one who healed the lame and the sick, while others see Him still on the cross. Because we know the Jesus who was here on the earth, it’s easy to lose focus of the sovereignty and deity of Christ. In John 1:3, the Bible says about Jesus, “Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made, that has been made.” And in Colossians, 1:16, we read, “For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and ...

Spiritual warfare

Spiritual warfare consists of struggling against evil forces in our minds. The Bible is clear that this is not a battle which is fought on a physical plane at all, but rather a spiritual one: Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Defensive spiritual warfare

There are two kinds of spiritual warfare, offensive and defensive. In defensive spiritual warfare, demonic spirits (under Satan’s command) are launched what is known as fiery darts, as Ephesians 6:16 tells us:

“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.”

These fiery darts come in one of three forms; temptations, deceptions and accusations.

Temptations

Satan couldn’t freely play havoc on Eve’s life because he had no rights ...

The most valuable thing

Forget your past, release your future
Pastor and Minister

In order for change to take place in our lives and for us to become effective Christians, we must forget our past and embrace our future.

The Word talks a lot about letting go of our past. God does not want us all cluttered up with the junk of our past.

God wants us to walk by faith, trust in Him and see our future through His eyes.

Forgetting and forgiveness go hand in hand, whether it is forgiving yourself or others. When we forgive, we must forget. Forgiving and forgetting positions you to receive God’s best, and go to the next level in life.

Look at forgetting your past as a key that opens the door to all the promises, riches and blessings of God.

Let us look to a few scriptures ...
