Narrow Path vs. Broad Path

narrow path image

The Narrow path is…

Hard

Difficult

A high cost

Painful to your flesh

Not popular

Not convenient

Most of the time, NOT easy

Where you have to continually yield and know your life is NOT your own

Where you have to submit and stayed focus on eternity

Focused on storing up your treasures in Heaven

Whereas, the broad path is…

Easy

Popular

Everybody does it

It’s where you have, the do whatever you want to do attitude

Where YOU rule

Where it is convenient

Instant gratification

Focused on the here and now

Storing up your treasures here on earth though, this is where thieves break in and steal, moth and rust destroy, and where when you die your treasure stays right here, for the righteous to ultimately receive (see Proverbs 13:22).

Yet, on the broad path there’s deception, a path leading straight to destruction,

A path of judgment.

On this path, this is where the wrath of God is.

Yes, for those who just play church, they’ll hear Jesus say, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” (Matthew 7:23)

However on the narrow path, you have (past), you are (present) and you shall have (future) life and peace, being shalom, the peace that the world did not give, so this peace, the world cannot take (see John 14:27), and most importantly, eternity in the age to come.

Therefore let’s all DO aim to be and stay on the NARROW PATH.

9 Souls NOT lost in vain!

In hearing about the tragic event that cost 9 souls their lives though yes, I felt the great pain, I as well, immediately witnessed the Glory of God. To see clearly how their lives were NOT taken in vain.

In fact, as a result to their lives being taken, I once again heard momentarily, the name of Jesus Christ be publically proclaimed nationally. I saw a preacher preach a message, in a church, in a traditional service broadcast live across the world on CNN News. I read the newspapers of how the family members stated, they forgave the killer, which by the way, that witnessed greatly to the whole world. I saw some blacks, whites, asians etc. be united. I saw the racial issue attempt to be addressed.

And so, to be quite honest the Glory of God I witnessed as a result to this, was just amazing and over taking. And that’s when I realized how, their lives were not taken in vain.

For I KNOW and have no question about it, that as a result, of this tradegy, souls WERE ushered into the Kingdom of God, being that in which, ultimately the Father wants. I as well, came to better understand just how it is, that we’ll begin to see in part, the kingdom of God be manifested here on earth.
Therefore, though again souls were lost on the other side, it was awsome to have been able to witness the Glory, and this is where I saw the Father take the evil and make it work for His good.

May the families of the love ones lost feel the supernatural comfort and overwhelming love of the Father during their time of grief. Amen.

And it came to PASS!!! (My Promise) Waiting on the Promise Part 3

and the promise came to pass picture

And the Promise came to pass…
Well, PRAISE the Lord I am so excited to announce that my promise came to pass!!! As a result of me choosing to put my trust in God instead of man, the Lord blessed me tremendously with yet, another supernatural birth. One that has come with so many, manifested miracles that I’ll have to put those in a separate book, but today, what I want to focus on is this, when it came time for me to receive my promise, if you read “Waiting on the Promise Part I and II” then you could clearly see how the pressure definitely intensified.

It intensified with temptation, me being at times uncomfortable, tired, weary, feeling different emotions in both the Spirit and natural realm, but yet, in it all, you also read how, though yes, I did experience all of that, still, through it all, I chose to stand. Stand in faith, and believe God for what at that time, had not yet manifested and because of God’s grace and His grace ALONE and because of my stand in Him, I was NOT PUT TO SHAME. Glory to God! Now with this particular pregnancy, I remember having a prophet call me and say, when it was near the end, that I had God’s grace and not long after that word was spoken the Lord allowed me to come into full understanding of that word, by allowing me to divinely hear a bible teacher on TV say how, God’s grace is not only God’s free benefits given to us by salvation, but it is also, God’s enabling power to do for us what we ourselves, in our hopelessness cannot do, and His grace is saying, there is proof of it, that is evident.

And so, when I received this word and revelation of this word boy, did I hold onto it with dear life and boy, did it impart into me the supernatural grace for the journey I faced being, His supernatural ability to receive His supernatural promise.

Although, the war as I mentioned, nearing the arrival of my promise definitely increased, looking back, I can testify truly, how through it all, I DID have the Father’s enabling power to overcome, to stand, to push past the discomfort etc. at work in me, because in truth, I myself, in my own strength, would’ve surely failed due to the extreme warfare I was dealing with. Yes, the warfare which Ephesians 6:12 tells us, that we as believers do face. Yet, what I’d like to release to you prophetically, is this…

If you too, can receive this word by faith, while you’re waiting on your own personal promises of God, though yes, the pressure may indeed be turned up, because you’re so close to seeing and receiving the promise come from heaven and be birthed here on earth, if as well, you too, choose to stand, trust, and not faint in God, despite all else, then God’s grace, being His enabling power, will be given unto you and do for you, what you in your own strength cannot. His grace WILL be at work on your behalf, such that one day, you too, can testify how, finally you did receive (past tense) your promises of the Lord. Yes, in the here and now.

Yet, in the meantime, while in your current wait, please know this, the promises of God are…Yea and Amen! I can’t wait to hear your testimonials as well, as a result to your faith and stand in God.

Say “Yes”

Say Yes

Say, “Yes” Lord

At different points in your walk with the Lord, you WILL feel this overwhelming feeling come over you to say, “Yes.” In these times, I encourage you, not to prohibit or squelch yourself from saying yes, all because you want to know specifically what it is that the Lord is requesting from you and or wanting you to do.

Instead, I’d highly recommend, for you to stop and acknowledge the Father’s presence because, it is indeed, the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit working within you. Philippians 2:13 reads, “For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” (NKJV)

Therefore, I’d encourage you to just surrender and say, “Yes, Lord.”

I’d like to also encourage you to hold on to that moment. In other words, don’t be quick with that moment. Honor the Lord, because He is imparting His supernatural power within you, for your assignment, which will be revealed in His timing.

In that “yes” moment, being in that encounter with the Father, worry not, even if you may not know what you’re saying “yes” to. However, do know, that your Spirit knows.

In truth, the Father is constantly, looking for there to be a YES that comes from deep within us. Yes, a NOT MY WILL, but YOUR WILL BE DONE. Coming from a place of surrendering. And when we position our hearts, in a posture of such, to aim to be obedient to His leading opposed to ours, it’ll be then, that we please Him in our walk.

Now, make no mistake about it, the Lord is fully aware that we wrestle against our own flesh, minute by minute, and how His Spirit within us is always fighting against our flesh, that the Father’s will may be done, and so, this is why, I’m encouraging you, like I’m encouraging myself to simply, say “yes” when times like this come upon us.

Simply, let the Father have His way, since in doing so, again, we receive a supernatural impartation, hallelujah, to go forth and accomplish His will.

Be RADICAL!

Be Radical

For Jesus,

Be an outcast

Be laughed at

Considered crazy, literally

Be ludicrous and what some may say, lazy

Due to you, putting your trust in God, instead of yourself and or man.

Be in the mind of others, considered timid, weak, and DO be shunned.

Yet, in all of that, be not deceived and know this,

The true ways of God, are without doubt, complete foolishness to man

And God, has chosen the weak and foolish things of this world

To confound the wise

Being, those dependent upon the wisdom of this world

And or humans, throughout the land.

Therefore, DO, go against the crowd

Do choose to be a part of the minority

Here on this earth, opposed to the majority.

Do take the pain and rejection now, for Jesus name.

This way, when it’s all said and done, you’ll inherit the guaranteed gain.

Do, allow the Lords will, to truly be done and His kingdom, to really come

Here on earth, as it is in Heaven.

Know, that it’s more than ok, to be known

As being a loner or solitude as others may say,

Opposed, to dining and feasting on the devils pleasures.

Pure Authentic Worship towards the Father

The Father is looking for a very pure, authentic and intimate response from those of us who are His. A response to His love, with our love, which is pure and not driven by the form of religion. Meaning, where we give Him love that comes purely from our gratitude and love towards Him which is, a direct result of the overflow from our private worship. Thus, here is my private prayer I now share publically…

When you Look into Chambers of my Heart (Proverbs 20:27)

May you find integrity
May you find truth and light
May you find humility
May you find honesty
May you find righteousness

May you find, denial of my flesh
When you look into the inner chambers of my heart
May you see,
you inside of me, taking over, having TOTAL dominion
and me, not subjected to my flesh.

When you look into the inner chambers of my heart
May you, ultimately stand proud and not disappointed.

May my heart glorify you and may it, truly be Set Apart for your glory, affecting generations to come, with a name that is a blessing and not a name erased from memory,
but a name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
When you look into the inner chambers of my heart, with the light of your Holy Spirit, may what you see, please you, in all sincerity. Amen

This is my prayer what is yours?
This is an exert from my book soon to be released book.

A Continual, “Yes Lord!”

The Prophetic Pen

When were allowing Jesus to be lord over our lives, then there WILL be continual yes’s.

Continual yes Lord!

Yes Lord!

Yes Lord!

In other words, once you finally yeild to one yes, then there will come the next and the next and the next.

Thus the reason, we’ve been instructed to cultivate our faith. Such that, when the test comes, prayerfully we will die to our flesh and yeild. In fact, Its a constant dying to our flesh, such that His will, will be done. Yet, thank the Lord for His Spirit which helps in our times of need, because I can tell you, we, in and of ourselves would fail.

Therefore, this IS the reason for the filling such that, as the calls from heavan come, we would respond with a sweet smelling, “Yes Lord”
