Oh Lord, I pray that more pastors will not be afraid of teaching on the topic of pornography. Surely, if they are saved and You have rescued them from this sexual sin, then they ought to be preaching against it. Just as You saved me, oh Lord, from the bondage of this addiction, You are able to free anyone that puts their faith in You. We are not here to fight our own battles, for that will never help us in the long run. That is why You have called people as Your pastors in churches. These people are here to warn the flock of God of the wrath to come, lest they repent and come unto You fully, Jesus. For this reason, I pray that people that are called to be a pastor will live up to their calling and say and do as the Holy Spirit leads them and not say or do what people in the church are telling them. Surely, it is better to help people know what is wicked and righteous in Your sight, then to lead people on the pathway to hell, unknowingly. Therefore, I am grateful Lord that You have at least given me and other evangelists, teachers and pastors the boldness to preach on this topic of pornography. I am not afraid to say what You have and other men of God have said in scripture. I don't wish to see anyone that says they believe in You to not be saved, because of a sin like pornography. These people may be in bondage now, but they can be set free through Your almighty power. Come Lord, and convict these people of their sins, so that they will confess their sins openly to You today. Then, can they be cleansed from all their sins and be placed on the path of righteousness. Surely, your mercy and forgiveness is for them. They can know the way, like I have, when we look to You, God. I love You. I trust in You, Lord. Amen.
1 Corinthians 6:18-20 (KJV)
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
If you are addicted to pornography, know that it is wicked and vial in God's sight. Come unto Jesus and let Him set you free.
Pornography is adultery in God’s eyes. And because of this, He does not tolerate it either. This is why this vial sin is on the list of willful sins that will keep a person out of heaven when they die. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, it is my prayer that we remember who we are at all times. That we don't just put up a good showing while at church, and then live an entirely different life outside of its walls. If we believe, let this be made known every day of our lives. Shine through us, that we may be a light unto this darken world. Give us ears to hear what is righteous and not give heed to what is wicked. Your ways are for us, but the world only offers sin and death. So we ask that You expel any bondage left in our lives, that we may begin to seek You with our whole hearts. As we follow You, You have put in us new desires. Our old life is put away and we now walk in newness of life. Thank You Lord. Thank You for choosing us while we were in sin, and showing us the right path to follow. It is a blessing and an honor to be chosen by You and to be under You, our last High Priest. And because You are our Shepherd and bishop to our souls, our hearts are open to You always. We come at Your feet, in order to listen to You, and then follow Your commands. Otherwise, we are not for You and are lost. These people, Lord, are seeking the wrong things and don't even realize it. And because Satan is guiding them and not You, they have no real reason to live. Your holy presence is what we need in life to be happy. This is what helps us know the way and to seek after righteousness. We cannot do this on our own, for we will only stumble and fall because of temptation. So gird us up with Your armor, oh Lord. Help us take upon ourselves the Word of God, that we might be protected when the enemy strikes. I believe in You. I trust in You, God. Oh, how I love You, Lord. Amen.
1 Peter 2:1-5 (KJV)
1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Those that live for Jesus are chosen people unto God. We are made different, for the light of the Lord is within us to guide us.
Because you have decided to not just believe but follow Jesus, the Lord has awakened you from your sleep, in order for you to know greater things. Continue Reading
Luke 15:20-22 (KJV)
20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
Lord, it is my prayer that more people make a decision today to follow You. To stop living their own lives an instead, repent of their sins. I know that You are waiting for us all to just take You by the hand and then You will do the rest. We don't have to wonder throughout life, trying to find the right way, for You are ready to guide and direct us on the right path now. Unfortunately, our flesh gets in the way and people start thinking that their self-gratification is more important to them then your salvation. This is very sad to see people risk their own lives, just for temporary pleasure in different things. Truly, they are on the verge of either escaping their life of sin, or are getting themselves further trapped in it. So I pray that they will be rescued before time is up. It would very hard to see people that I know and love go to hell, when their decision to repent and come unto You was always in the back of their minds. I know that sin can do terrible things in our lives. It can ruin the relationship we once had with You. Thank You for showing me this, so that I could repent. I would never want to lose out on Your eternal presence in my life now and the next. What I have learned is that Your blessings are more important to me, then whatever the world or the flesh can offer me. I can be poor, but still be rich in You, God. All I need is Your presence and I have the greatest joy of all. Nothing Satan can offer me can ever replace Your great love. All I want is more of You and less of me. Take my heart, Lord, and use me for Your greater good. I wish to be Your servant, that many lives will also see Your love through me. Light up my life, oh Lord. Give me strength to carry on. Lead me away from temptation. Build me up with Your armor. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.
No earthly pleasure is worth more than the love that Jesus can offer us. Come unto Him and He will forgive you of your sins.
Earlier, I mentioned a portion of the story of the prodigal son. This is because we are all like him at one time in our lives. Continue Reading
Oh Lord, I pray that people in the faith will open up their lives to You and for the care of their brothers and sisters in the faith. May they begin to see past themselves and see the needs of others also. Then, will they begin to do Your will and care for other individuals that are hurting. They would lift these beautiful people up in the faith, while fellow-shipping with them and praying with them often. Give these people a loving heart for all Your children and not just those in their family outside the faith. I know that we are Your children and are now a part of a much greater family then the one I was born in. Truly, every member of the faith is a part of that eternal family, of which I will be with in heaven. I am so looking forward to this, Lord. It truly brings a smile to my face to know that every person that believes in and follows You, Jesus, that I will be with them and You also in heaven. It will be a most wonderful family and we will rejoice together in Your heavenly home. And as I am looking forward to this time with You on this new earth and in heaven, I hope and pray that I will never lose sight of these same brothers and sisters, while on earth. May I know who is in need, that I might pray for them and with them? Help me care for the people in church, that all their spiritual and physical needs will be met in Your presence, oh God. Because You are the supplier of all good things for my life, I wish to share the same joy that it gives me with those in the faith also. Help them see how You have transformed my life and how they also can be changed. No sin can stand in the way of Your mercy. No sickness can stand in the way of Your healing power. You are the Lord God almighty and can do all things. I trust in You, God. I love You. Amen.
Philemon 1:3,4 (KJV)
3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
Don't let a day go by without praying for and with others in need. Visit them or call them, while lifting them up as God would.
As Christians, we know that we were all once part of the darkness of this world, while living in sin, but now our lives have been transformed in Christ Jesus. Continue Reading
