A Season To Be Joyful

Jesus

From Our Family To Yours

We wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas!

It’s a season to be joyful. Therefore, give thanks for what you still have, and is able to do. Do not worry about what’s already gone, and you’re not able to do anymore.

Remember the reason for the season, and that Jesus brought peace, joy and hope to this world.

Whether you’re staying home for the holidays or you’re traveling, please be safe.

God bless you and your family.

In a perilous time such as this, where the world is in a turmoil, is war inevitable? There is no guarantee that war will cease, but there is a guarantee that you can have peace in the midst of war.  The greatest gift that God has given us, is His son – Jesus.  In light of this, amidst all the trials and tribulations of this world, Jesus has already overcome the world (John 16:33).

As Jesus made His entry into this world, there was a great rejoicing, because the prophesy has been fulfilled. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men (St. Luke 2:10-11:14).

Jesus' birth

As we approach the birth of Jesus, remember that there’s still hope and a future. Jesus came that you will have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10).  Therefore, your enemy has been defeated by the power of Jesus. Remember the reason that Jesus came, that you will have life and have it more abundantly.

By and large, as you go through this season, reflect on Him as a savior who came not only to give you salvation, but to deliver you from all evil.

The Warrior’s Prayer:

Heavenly Father,
Your warrior prepares for battle.

Today I claim victory over Satan by putting on
the whole armor of God!

I put on the Girdle of Truth!
May I stand firm in the truth of Your Word so
I will not be a victim of Satan’s lies.

I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness!
May it guard my heart from evil so I will
remain pure and holy, protected under
the blood of Jesus Christ.

I put on the Shoes of Peace!
May I stand firm in the Good News of the
Gospel so Your peace will shine through me
and be a light to all I encounter.

I take the Shield of Faith!
May I be reader for Satan’s fiery darts of
doubt, denial, and deceit so I will not be
vulnerable to spiritual defeat.

I put on the Helmet of Salvation!
May I keep my mind focused on You so Satan
will not have a stronghold on my thoughts.

I take the Sword of the Spirit!
May the two-edged sword of Your Word
be ready in my hands so I can expose
the tempting words of Satan.

By faith your warrior has
put on the whole armor of God!

I am prepared to live this day in
spiritual victory! Amen.

Turning Point

If you find yourself in a hard place today, take courage, my friends. Only in Christ is true peace to be found. He reminded us in His word that in this life, we would have troubles, but we can find courage because He has overcome the world (John 16:33).

In spite of the struggles we may face in this life, we never walk alone, for He is with us. He will never abandon us in our trials or leave us to work it all out on our own.

Jesus never called us to embrace the world and all it offers. But He calls us to take up our own cross, and to follow Him, to be salt and light, and to walk in love.

It’s a whole new day ahead. And He has plans for you, for me, to make a difference in these days, in the life of another soul, for His purposes.

Praying that His huge grace, wisdom, and strength cover us today. And that, in Him, we will find freedom from worry as we let go of the stress that clings too tightly, the pressing needs of tomorrow, and struggles we battle today, so that we can fully embrace His gift of forgiveness and love.

He’s the Overcomer. And we are never alone.

Peace.

New Year Message

We wish everyone a Happy New Year. The year 2017 might have been a great year for some, while it was a rough year for others. Notwithstanding, 2018 is an opportunity to start fresh. It’s the beginning of new dreams, goals, objectives and aspirations.

Happy New Year

While there are so many different avenues that you may wish to embark on for 2018, you need to remember to make sure you are prioritizing your goals. When you prioritize your goals, you are able to make them more realistic and achievable, thus eliminating unnecessary disappointments. You should start prioritizing your goals, by setting both short and long-term goals. In so doing, you can accomplish what you set out to achieve for 2018.

Remember that life is not without obstacles, setbacks and disappointments. However, when you trust God to take care of you and your family, He will not disappointment you. All things work together for good, even when they seem like they are impossible and failing (Romans 8:28).

As you embark on your journey in 2018, trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).

God bless you all.

OUR CHRISTMAS WISHES TO YOU

We wish you all life’s happiness and every lovely thing.
With days of golden sunshine and years of endless spring.
We wish you love abundantly, that never seems to cease;
Your daytimes filled with laughter and your nights with gentle peace.
To never feel the pain of want, to have the best of health;
May sorrow never cross your door, your purse be great with wealth.
But most of all We wish you this, the greatest wish there is,
That God will ever Bless YOU and will ever call you His!
MERRY CHRISTMAS,
DEAR FAMILY AND FRIENDS,
& A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

 

You’re Forgiven!

Whatever situation the enemy is using in your past to haunt you and cause you to feel guilty, you’re forgiven!

You have got to stop beating up on yourself in believing the enemy’s trick of condemnation. The blood that washes whiter than snow is able to cleanse any sins and renew you to a perfect standing with God.

If you have prayed and asked God forgiveness, He has forgiven you! Although others might not have forgiven you, He has. LET IT GO!

The two thieves who were crucified with Jesus asked Him to remember them when He goes to His father’s Kingdom. In response, Jesus said, “Today you shall be with me in paradise (Matthew 23:43).

With that said, you have already been forgiven. It’s immediate! Therefore, be renewed. Forget those things which are behind, and reach forth for the things which are in front. It’s time to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:13-14).

What would it be like if you call in to pay a debt, and you hear your balance is zero? That would be nice indeed, wouldn’t it? Well, this is just how nice it is to hear that your debt in sins has been paid in full. Read on:

Paid in Full

One day Satan went to visit Jesus in the Garden of Eden. Satan and Jesus were having a conversation, and Satan was all happy and boasting. (Luke 4: 1-12; Job 1: 6-12)

“Yes, Lord, now I have everybody captive, (well nearly everybody down there). I set traps, I used the baits of temptation, and I know very well what each one of them can’t resist.  I nearly caught them all!” (I Pet 5: 8-9; Eph 6: 10-17)

“What are you going to do with them?” Jesus asked, as He was praying to God the Father.

Satan answered, “Oh, I am going to have some fun with them! I’ll make them divorce after they have been married so the foundation of humanity will never be able to be established ‘the family’.” (Mt 19: 4-6; Mal 2: 16)

“I will make them hate and abuse each other, and I will make them fall into alcohol and drugs addiction.” (Rom 13: 12-14)

“I will teach them to make weapons and bombs,
so that they will kill each other. I am really going to have fun!”

“And when you are tired of playing with them, what will you do?”
Jesus asked, as He continued praying.

“Oh, I will kill them all, and their souls will be mine forever. Lord by all respect, it’s their decision.” (I John 3: 8-10)

“How much do you want for all of them?” Jesus asked.

“Oh, you don’t want these people. They aren’t anything good.
Why do you want them if they neither follow you nor love you?
Many hate you! I have seen many of them cursing you, and even denying you. What’s more, they love me a lot.” (Mt 24: 10-13)

“You don’t want these people!!”

“How much?” Jesus asked again.

Satan looked at Him with a nasty face, and replied, “All your blood, sweat and tears.” (Is 53: 4-10; I Pet 2: 24)

Jesus said…”DONE!”

And He paid the price. (II Cor 5: 21)

How terrible it is that people don’t seek God, and then ask themselves why the world is going to Hell? How terrible it is that we seek the newspaper everyday to read tragedies and gossips, and we never seek to read the Bible?

How insensible it is that everybody wants to go to Heaven, thinking they can get there without having to believe, without loving God, above all things, doing what the Bible says…the Laws of God?

It is terrible how some people can say ‘I believe in God’ but still follow Satan. (Who as a matter of fact, does fear God) (II Tim 4: 3-4; II Jn 1: 7-11)
Don’t you think it is outrageous that the obscene, vulgar and crude message is allowed freely to pass through the internet, but when it’s a message about God, we think about it twice before we share it? It is forbidden to speak publicly about Jesus in the schools, places of work, self-helping groups, etc., even after knowing what He did for us. The Romans didn’t killed Him, our sins caused His death, that we may be forgiven, and know Him in His glory with the Father.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Just thought of sharing this story of a scenario with Satan and Jesus, and the price Jesus paid for our sins. Author is unknown, but I thought it very interesting. Hope you do too. Share your feedback.

 

New Year Message

We wish everyone a Happy New Year. The year 2016 might have been a great year for some, while it was a rough year for others. Notwithstanding, 2017 is an opportunity to start fresh. It’s the beginning of new dreams, goals, objectives and aspirations.

Happy New Year

While there are so many different avenues that you may wish to embark on for 2017, you need to remember to make sure you are prioritizing your goals.

God bless you all.
