Expected End


When calamity of any kind strikes the believer you should never be shocked and/or surprised. Why? Because God has already disclosed within His Word that trials, tribulations and persecutions would come. As a believer in Jesus Christ your life should bear the marks of Jesus Christ. To live as a Christian is to die as a sinful man and behold all things become new. You should not have trials because of sin, but out of your righteous living the trial is from the enemy of us all and his name is Satan.

While it is unlikely you will deal with the Satan cast down from heaven, he has many servants that are just like him that will fill in. You will have to war with them in your flesh and no amount of anointing or being filled with the Holy Spirit will end this war. Expect to fight the good fight of faith until you shed this flesh. There is no relief in this battle, but daily we must come before God to receive grace in our times of need. Paul said, when I would do good, evil is present. As one that casts out demons, I can assure you evil spirits dwell within your home, if they are not inside you physically because of your chaste lifestyle.

A proper mindset will guard your heart against false expectations and let downs. A proper mindset will set you up to believe God and draw from Him for everything you require. God is faithful and God is upfront about the difficulty faced in serving Him and entering His eternal kingdom. Few find it. Let us continually look up from whence cometh our help. For that is our expected end.

Taking the Journey Less Traveled

Interracial Marriage

There is always something special about a man and woman who takes a journey less traveled. We celebrate firsts and trendsetters and all others are left unknown within the story. We learn about the outliers because they are different. The way they move is peculiar and they have such a vibrance that makes them interesting and the focus of large amounts of content and conversation. Interracial marriage is rare, like a diamond it moves, it highlights, and garnishes attention unlike the rock in a group of dirt. You can see them among a crowd as it moves and you are captivated by its presence. You must look and it causes your mind to consider and this is interracial marriage.

The children that are developed and formed in the womb are also traveling a road less traveled. They are asked to identify themselves and are the topic of many discussions. They…

Treasured and Qualified

Screen Shot 2020-07-25 at 4.46.13 PM

The Lord has the best prescription for life. The only prescription that allows you to keep what you have earned in your labor. All labor is for the wind outside the will of God. For in death, you cannot keep anything you labored to receive. You may have the highest position on earth and a good name among many and still miss the mark and enter the pit. It is important that are heart remain on Jesus.

For the Bible teaches us that our affections must be placed on things above and not beneath. To be carnally minded is death. Measure your life by the correct rod and understand the will of the Lord. To be treasured and qualified, you must know and follow Jesus Christ. To be treasured and qualified, you must love the Lord. If we do not follow the Lord Jesus Christ and reject the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are not treasured and we are qualified for rejection.

Whatever gift God has given you, use it to glorify Him. Remember, the measure of a man and woman is defined by God. Our desire is to make God smile. When God smiles, your future is bright and when God is angry, your future is dreadful.

Listen to the Word of the Lord:

But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. (Luke 12:5).

Not Everyone Gets to Know Your Identity

Interracial Marriage

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, He questioned His disciples: “Who do people say the Son of Man is?

They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

But what about you?” Jesus asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven.  And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.  I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose…

Going Farther with a Father

Interracial Marriage

The father is so important to the family structure that his absence affects a generation of people negatively. The father is so important to the vision of a family that without his presence, you will notice a high level of instability and insecurity that is indicative of a family without a father. God ordained the father to be the leader of the home and has given him a natural gift and an anointing for that role. When the man is not in his ordained space, there will be no protection against avoidable adversity.

The absence of a father also makes it difficult to relate to God. God has positioned Himself as a Father and Jesus moved based upon the Words He heard from His Father. If ones experience is fatherless, then any analogy will be lost concerning a father’s role and Jesus relationship and our relationship to Him.  There is…
