A Wednesday Prayer and Message!

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

A Blessed Morning To Everyone! Our 10" blooms this year are beautiful. Give God all the glory!

PRAYER: " Holy Father, Divine God! Help us to find order and peace. We know You are the God of order, and order brings peace. We need Your order and peace in our life....we need You in our life. Grant us relief and deliverance from all disorders. Show us how to maintain Your order and peace in our daily living. Give us the wisdom to not allow anything that would disturb that order and peace to influence our life. Fill our heart, soul and mind with Yout Word and power. Fill our soul with Your Spirit so there is no room for evil or wickedness or sin. This we ask in the blessed name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. Let's review what we have learned so far before we go on with the next Step:
a. Jesus said, " not everyone that calls me Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of God, but he who does the will of my Father" (Matt 7:21).
b. What is the will of the Father? (Eph 4:22-24).
1. Put off the Old man.
2. Put on the New man. (This is done through baptism (Rom 6).
3.. Give the New Man all power, authority and control. (Here is where many fall short).
c. How do we transfer that power from the Old Man to the New Man?
1. Step #1 - Change our purpose in life.
2. Step #2 - Believe we can change with God's help.
3. Step #3 - Study our Bible about our habits.
4. Step #4 - Repent of our sins.
5. Step #5 - Develop a plan of action.
6. Step #6 - Pray regularly.
7. Step #7 - Seek help from other Christians.
8. Step #8 - Diligently practice what is right.
9. Step #9 - Substitute good habits for bad ones.
2. THINK ABOUT THIS! Nature hates a vacuum. Remove the air from a bottle and the air will return. Fill the bottle with something solid and the air will stay out. Our life cannot not be a spiritual void. It must be filled either with good or evil, with Christ or Satan. To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God Bless us and fill our heart, soul and mind with the Fullness of Christ.
In His Divine Love, Vic.

A Tuesday Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

A Glorious Greeting To Everyone! Thank you for your rsponses and comments. Praise God and give Him all the glory.

PRAYER: "Loving and Merciful Father, Beloved God! We sometimes think that life is unfair. But if we suffer as a Christian and are not ashamed, then let us praise You that we bear the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. If we must suffer, than let us suffer for doing good rather than doing evil. May a greater good come from our suffrering. As your children, we surrender our lives to Your will and wisdom. Help our believing that our faithful obedience may be a blessing to us and to others. Strengthen our faith in times of trials that we may stand firm and bring praise, glory and honor to You our God. Enable us to live more and more like Christ each day. This we pray and ask in the glorious name of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. What is wrong with just doing God's will partially?
a. Jesus gives us a precarious spiritual condition of what happens in Matt 12:43-45:
1. A house that is swept clean but unoccupied, is an invitation for unclean spirits, who leeft it but are unable to find a place of rest, to return and bring with them other unclean spirits, resulting even in a greater degeneration of the house than before.
2. If we invite Jesus to come live in our house, and he comes, cleans and sweeps the house, and that is what He does, it is for Him to live in. He must be the only one to occupy that house, the honored guest, the head of the house.
2. THINK ABOUT THIS! Can fresh water and salt water come from the same well? NO! It has to be one or the other. So it is with us when we put on Christ. What kind of water comes from your well? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May we all be blessed today with the wisdom of God. In His Grace, Vic.

A Monday Prayer and Message!

Monday, June 13, 2011

Goooooooooooooooooood Morning Everyone. We trust everyone had a wonderful weekend! We welcome all new members to team! Let's remember to share these prayers and messages with others, and / or invite them to join the team. Give God all the glory!

PRAYER: "Holy Father, Loving God! You are the True God who fills us with joy and peace until they overflow, as we learn to trust You more and more each day. Help us to resist the things which would deplete our soul or minimize our strength to follow Jesus. Fill us instead with Your Hope, Peace and Joy so that it overflows from us unto others. We praise You for Who You are, our God, and thank You for Your great love. Let Your Holy Spirit pour new life into us today, fill us afresh with Your Spirit and Word, and take away all darkness and hopelessness from us. This we pray in the blesssed name of Jesus our Lord, Amen!"

MESSAGE: Following Jesus!
1. As we continue to look at, "Substitute Good Habits for Bad Ones", in order to help us change our lives according to God's will, we read on in Eph 5:3 thru 21:
a. Replace sexual sins, filthiness, foolish tak and jestering, and idols by giving thanks and walking in the light (Vs 3-4).
b. Those who do these things (paragraph a. above) will not inherit the kingdom of Christ and God (Vs 5).
c. Let no man deceive you less the wrath of God comes upon you (Vs 6).
d. Be not a partaker of these things (Vs 7).
e. Walk not in darkness but walk in the light: for the light exposes all wickedness (Vs 8-11).
f. Be wise and walk carefully, redeeming yourtime, and making the most of every opportunity to expose evil ways (Vs 12-16).
g. Understand what the will of God is, and do it (Vs 17; Eph 4:22-24).
h. Be not filled with wine but be filled with the Spiirit (Vs 18).
i. Speak to one another in psalms and hymns; sing and make melody in your hearts to the Lord giving thanks (Vs 19-20).
j. Submit yourselves one to another in the fear (respect) of God (Vs 21).
2. THINK ABOUT THIS! How can we be filled to the fullness of the Spirit if we give Him only partial control of our lives and not full control. This is why Jesus said in Matt 7:21, "Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of the Father which is in heaven". Are you doing FULLY the will of the Father? Or just partially? To Be Continued Tomorrow!

May God shine His light upon us, expose all darkness in us, so He can fill us overflowing with His Spirit and Grace. In His Love, Mercy and Grace, Vic.

A Sunday Spiritual Hymn!

Sunday, June 12, 2011

A Blessed Morning to Everyone! This is a fairly new hymn, with the words and music created by Ken Young in 1993. It is a beautiful hymn that was inspired by Ps89:1, " I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever; with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations".

TITLE: FAITHFUL LOVE

1. Faithful love flowing down from the thorn covered crown,
Makes me whole, saves my soul, washes whiter than snow.
Faithful love calms each fear, reaches down, dries each tear;
Holds my hand when I can't stand on my own.
(REFRAIN)

2. Faithful love is a friend just when hope seems to end,
Welcome face, sweet embrace, tender touch filled with grace.
Faithful love, endless power, living flame, Spiirit's fire;
Burning bright in the night, guiding my way.
(REFRAIN)

REFRAIN:
Faithful love from above came to earth to show the Father's love.
And I'll never be the same, for I've seen faithful love face to face,
And Jesus is His name.

God Bless Everyone, Vic.

A Saturday Spiritual Hymn!

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Aloha Everyone! Today's hymn is fairly new. The words and the music was created by Beaker in 1991, and the music was arranged again by Ken Young in 1993. The inspiration for this lovely hymn came from Ps 63:1, "O God, thou art my God, early will I seek thee,...."

TITLE: STEP BY STEP

1. O God, You are my God, and I will ever praise You.
I will seek You in the morning,
And I will learn to walk in Your ways,
And step by step You'll lead me,
And I will follow You all of my days.

DS:
And I will follow You all of my days,
And I will follow You all of my days,
And step by step You'll lead me,
And I will follow You all of my days.

God Bless Everyone and Have A GREAT WEEKEND, Vic.
