The prophesy of the Lord’s birth, in Isaiah 7 and 8, was fulfilled in Matthew 1. The wait was finally over. The birth of the Messiah had finally come to pass.
John, the apostle, also knew of the glory of God, through Jesus. His eyes were opened and he saw “the Lion of the tribe of Judah.”
What the Lord can do through us in prayer is more than we will ever know. Until we have given our hearts to God we will never know what this means.
There was a time, in days past, that each of us lived apart from God. We did what the lusts of the flesh desired.
My destination was also hell. My old life was so far gone. I had no control over my flesh. When it was weak, I gave into the pleasures it desired.
It is true that each of us have a choice to believe in and follow Jesus. However, one way or another, all will, one day, “bow down before him”.
Shortly after talking with these two gentlemen, my walk led me to another awesome discussion with a wonderful young man.
It is a very sad day when a family member or friend passes away, that didn’t believe in God for salvation.
If God has come to your rescue, then rejoice. Give Him thanks. Don’t just pray and receive but pray and give thanks. Give praise to the one who saves.
Come humbly before God in prayer. Confess your sins and lay your addictions at the feet of Jesus. Admit that you are a sinner and need a Savior.
The times that I am far from God are the times that I am in sin or not reading God’s Word. It is always one or the other.
My precious Jesus. You are the reason why I live. Your mercy has set me free. The cross has given me hope for a new day. Thank You Lord.
You may have once had faith in God but since backslidden and gone after your own ways. In all this, your life is not over yet.
When you give your life to Jesus, it is the most amazing thing ever. Your mind becomes invigorated in the Spirit.
My soul rejoiceth, for I am no longer dead but alive in Christ the Lord. I give Him all my praise and worship for I am saved.
One day soon, the wicked will tremble before the Lord in judgement. They may not be so keen to is judgements now but after death they will have no choice but to surrender to Him.
The Lord is my light and my high tower. I have been rescued from darkness into light. I was once blind but I can now see.
Because of the vast amount of churches, now a days, check their doctrines and teachings with the Bible.
Come and be fed by the King of Glory. In any time or place in your life, give your heart to God in prayer. Just open your mouth and speak from your heart.
After preaching, I met this young man, who was with his friends. I asked him if he believed in Jesus Christ and he said no.
God has spoken to my mind that I might see His glorious presence. I gave the Lord free access to my heart and have not looked back.
God’s ways are good. He is the meaning of all good things. The Father’s great love changes lives. What the Lord offers, people would run for, if they truly knew the meaning.
I continued down 8th and Main, and started preaching on Matthew, chapter 4. I declared, Jesus said “Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Though I felt far from the Lord, I started looking to Him for relief. In all my shame, I came to God for mercy.
The Lord God knows who loves or hates His words. Most people would rather walk in the ways of the world then change their ways.
Submit your lives to God. No longer let the members of your body fight inside of you. There is nothing good that can come from this.
Choose ye, this day, whom you will serve. I pray that your heart is compelled to repent, if you are in sin. If you are covered by the blood of Jesus, then rejoice.
