If you are going to ask God for change, your life has to change! You show how much something means to you, by what you are willing to give up to get it. God hears the petitions you bring before Him, He knows the desires of our hearts (Psalm 37:4). However, in order for Him to release favor in your life, it has to come with a sacrifice. You said you wanted to be like Jesus; Jesus was hated, crucified. You will experience opposition as you walk in your purpose with God. You don’t really have a ministry until someone challenges you! It is at the point that people challenge you and you face adversity that you will come to really know who you are in Him. You are going to be tried by the fire (1 Peter 1:7), but know that you will come out as pure gold. The sacrifice you must make to see God move in your life will be well worth it. Trust the process!

If you don't make it into the Kingdom of God it is your fault. You chose sin over Jesus. You chose the Lake of Fire of the Kingdom of God. We ALL have a free ticket into eternal life with God! We must accept Jesus into our hearts! We must be born again! We must REPENT! Stay with the Word of God and always pray! Prayer is important and it's our way of talking to Jesus. Jesus is coming and you must always be ready. Remember this before you give into temptation. Is that sin worth the Lake of Fire? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
@Regrann from @bishopjakes: Good Morning!
Jesus doesn’t care what you SAY, He cares what you DO! Perfecting the colloquialisms and routines of church simply isn’t enough. What kind of fruit do you bear? The problem isn’t the seed - the harvest that comes from God’s word is plentiful- the problem may be the soil; Are you good ground? Your relationship with God should provoke repentance (2 Corinthians 5:17)! What is in your heart will reflect in your actions! It is a sacrifice to follow God! What is the price you are willing to pay? Remember, God paid the ultimate price so that you may have abundant life (John 1:12)! Every good thing given comes from above (James 1:17) - let your actions line up with your words and get ready to receive all God has for you!

“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.” Revelation 11:3-12
DWP (Dah Waktunya Pulang)
Banyak yang pemikirannya terbalik soal kedekatan kita sama ajal. Merasa jauh dari ujung umur, biasanya memang begini yang berada dalam diri tiap jiwa manusia.
. "mumpung masih muda, makanya harus kita puas-puasin bro-sis". Betul sebenarnya, cuma menghabiskan rasa puas kemana? ke jalan yang diridhoi Allah. Bukan justru ikut arus mainstream mendukung kejahiliyahan. Seolah hidup ini masih lama selesainya.
Ada yang mungkin belum kita sadari sampai diusia yang sekarang ini. Tentang pertanyaan Allah yang berbunyi "Di gunakan untuk apa masa muda kita?".. Hanya dengan berpetak umpet kah sama dunia?.. Merasa dapat menaklukan duniakah hanya dengan satu malam, bersama lampu kerlip dan musik yang menggebuk jantung dengan cepat?..
Ketahuilah sahabat-sahabat ku yang dirindukan langit. "orang yang cerdas adalah orang yang selalu mengingat kematian". Ini Rasulullah yang sampaikan. Pastilah ku pegang dengan kencang sebagai pengingat untuk ku dan anak-anakku.
Disaat Palestina di rundung duka penjajahan bangsa rakus, semalam aroma gempa terasa dibeberapa titik, MK melakukan keputusan yang dapat menimbulkan bencana. Masih kah kita bersantai dengan kebanggaan masa muda kita yang tanpa karya untuk dipersembahkan pada Allah?..
Mulailah berpikir perpisahan pada dunia, pada ibu & ayahmu. Dengan membekali diri dengan sesuatu yang haq, yang berisi, untuk menjawab dengan lugas kala bertemu malaikat maut. Sudah saatnya kita membanting stir kehidupan, & berbalik pulang menuju garasi, lalu keluar dari garasi menuju rumah Allah yang penuh akan kebermanfaatan untuk kehidupan setelah kematian.
Jangan tunggu sampai lelahnya terasa karena sibuk dengan ketidak jelasan masa muda. Kasihanilah diri ini.
. "Dah Waktunya Pulang", kalau gak sekarang ya nanti. Yang kita takut kan yakni, "bagaimana jika mati menghampiri saya sepulangnya saya dari tempat yang penuh dengan kesenangan dunia?"
Since TMH God's word warns us to #BEWARE of #tradition (Col. 2:8), we shouldn't be surprised to find the Devil right in the middle of the world's most celebrated holiday(that just happens to be pagan). Lucifer's desire has always been to dethrone God and exalt himself (Isa. 14:12-15). ⚠STOP TEACHING CHILDREN TO #WORSHIP#SANTA ⚠ You have been tricked!!
👉SANTA IS OMNISCIENT
Children are taught that #Santa "knows when you've been good, and he knows when you've been bad".
👉CHRIST IS OMNISCIENT
"The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good." (Pro. 15:3) "And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?" (Mat. 9:4)
👉SANTA IS OMNIPRESENT
Santa must be omnipresent, because he has the ability to visit over a billion homes in a twenty-four hour period. That's over 1100 per second!
👉CHRIST IS OMNIPRESENT
"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." (Mat. 18:20)
👉SANTA IS OMNIPOTENT
He has the ability to carry #presents for over a billion children.
👉CHRIST IS OMNIPOTENT
"And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." (Mat. 28:18)
👉SANTA HAS SPIRIT HELPERS CALLED ELVES
Webster, 1828: "#ELF ...a spirit, the night-mar; a ghost, hag, witch"
👉CHRIST HAS SPIRIT HELPERS CALLED ANGELS
"Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him." (Mat. 4:11)
👉SANTA IS ETERNAL
A child knows nothing of his beginning. To a child, Santa has just always existed.
👉CHRIST IS ETERNAL
"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." (Rev. 1:8)
👉SANTA IS COMING SOON
During the Christmas season it is emphasized over and over that "Santa is coming".
👉CHRIST IS COMING SOON
"He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus." (Rev. 22:20)
The words of @khosseini are always true. ❤️❤️
You see, Jesus delivered two men possessed of demons at a price of a herd of pigs, and the whole city rejected The Saviour, and sent Him out of their boarders.-Matthew 8:28-34.
Paul casted out a familiar spirit of fortune telling from a girl, and a market crowd naked him and silas, beat them up, sent them to prison, in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.-Acts 16:16-24.
MONEY IS THE PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER OF SATAN.
When Idol Worship, Apostasy, and Sin puts food on a man's table, and money in his bank account, scarcely would that person want to #REPENT .
Jesus overturned the table of the money changers, and they took it personal.-John 2:13-17.
As a matter of fact, that was the stroke that broke the camel's back, and they had Christ killed.
It is ironic and sad that when Boko Haram was attacking Christians in the North, church leaders scarely spoke as one, but when one man attacked New Testament tithing, all the pastors are speaking out, how be it #sentimentally .
Money is the #NERVE (The strings), your guess is as good as mine, who is pulling it.
Except a wheat falls and dies... Until we die to the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life.
Until we die to the cares of this world and it's attending passions, we would NEVER know the abundant life Jesus brings.
We would keep #returning to EGYPT in our hearts, and keep rejecting any truth that is not #economical .
Jesus says, “You’ve come looking for Me not because you saw GOD in My actions but because I fed you, filled your stomachs—and for free.-John 6:26.
The irony of the matter is also an oxymoron;
Satan whose intention is to kill and destroy comes bearing the promise of life,(materialism and money)
While Jesus the Christ who comes to give life eternal, requires we die first to the cares of this life.
READ YOUR BIBLE, MEDITATE, PRAY, TRUST AND OBEY GOD...Kuorire
Those who live to please themselves and don't obey what God tells them, even if you are a Christian, will have their minds set on what the flesh desires. Those who read God's Word and does their best to do what He wants them to, will have their mind set on what God desires for us.
After completing his third and final sermon of the morning Sunday, celebrity pastor Moses McRoberts of Greenacres Community Church reportedly fretted backstage that he had come off “too preachy,” reports confirmed.
“I started calling for faith and repentance and everything. Really, Mo? Repentance? Ugh,” he lamented in the green room after service. “I sounded like a real Bible-believing Jesus freak up there.”
“What was I thinking?” he added. “Man I hope we didn’t lose anybody today.”
McRoberts then reportedly reviewed tape of his sermon and cringed at several points, such as when he asked the audience to open in their Bibles to the book of Romans, and at one point when he used the phrase, “It’s not about you.” #TodaysLukewarmChurch
Comment: “Why do pastors keep doing this? I go to church for the coffee, music, and light show. Yet in almost every one I try out some guy thinks he needs to interrupt with talking and reading from a book. That might have worked before the development of fog machines and electric guitars, but not now.” 😭😭😭
Comment: “At my church, I don’t want to tell people what to do. I want to listen to everyone’s story, except God’s of course.” - Carl Len...uh, I mean...Moses McRoberts

You cannot have revival until you have repentance? Repentance brings revival! God is waiting on YOU! As soon as you turn around, God will turn around (2 Chronicles 7:14)! John's Church was made up of people that said they weren't going to serve, but something got a hold of them & changed their hearts! Got wants to do something in your life, but He cannot do it at your current level of service. You've got to repent! The kingdom of God is truly at hand! It's time for a revival in all areas of your life, but you have to let some things go! What is truly in your heart will show through the sacrifice you make! He is waiting on you to make the first move!

Jeremiah 31:31 “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, 32 not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord. 33 “But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
Notice the distinction between 2 groups, house of Israel and house of Judah.
All Jews are Israel but not all Israel are Jews.
The new marriage covenant is between 1 husband (Yeshua) and 1 virgin bride (us), not 2 brides (Jews and Israel, and certainly not 3 brides (Jews and Israel and gentiles).
All 12 tribes of Israel were married and sprinkled with blood at Mt. Sinai, not just 1 tribe (Judah/Jews).
Today, every tribe (nation), not just gentiles are sprinkled with the blood of Yeshua if they are in the new covenant mentioned in Jeremiah above.
Ephesians 2:Ephesians 2:11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— 12 that at that time you were without Messiah, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Jesus the Messiah you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Messiah.
You were once "gentiles" in the flesh, but not any more.
