We are being sent to dangerous environments! Are you prepared?!

Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves.“ Matt 10:16

Wolves are natorious for preying on sheep. Wolves will hunt and eat a sheep. This gruesome message from Jesus isn’t something to take lightly. I am sending you to very dangerous situations. I am sending you to a situation where the people would like to devour you. Be as clever (shrewd) as snakes and harmless as dove. Be strategic. Be aware. Be sober of people and your surroundings.

 

Oh I am so thankful for the Bible. Every word provided in it is so  critical for our understanding and walking by faith.  The warnings and messages will serve as important treassures to live by, to be gaurded in, and to meditate on. It’s beautiful because the Lord not only thought of everything so we might have success as faithful children but God also provided the very tools so that we would have the ability to walk it out. The very best resource we have is the Holy Spirit that perfectly teaches us all things, warns us about all things, convicts us, leads us, and comforts us. The Holy Spirit is such an amazing resource.

The things that lurk for us in the darkness can be exposed. The advice is clear be as shrewd as a snake.

Be sharp, be smart, be wise and be clever. Be a sharp player on defense. Don’t lie and wait to be devoured. We have been given the resources to pass the test and to endure to the end. We can do this! How am I so confident?! Because my hope and Faith is in His Word. His precious words that haven’t been found to be a lie even today. We can do ALL things through Christ. It’s time to put on our Holy warrior equipment and endure.

We must be wise and be as harmless as doves remembering that though these evil spirits are operating through man at times we must remember who the enemy is. Every Human on this Earth has an opportunity to receive Jesus as their Lord and savior and the moment they do makes them our sibling. We must be harmless because this war isn’t against flesh and blood but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

 

Are you prepared to fight? Are you aware you are in a war? Are you acknowledging that Jesus is sending us as sheep amongst wolves? Don’t be shocked when an attack comes (because it will come), be ready! We have no need to worry or fear any enemy because the Lion (Jesus) not only walks with us but lives in us.

Back to the basics- I want You Christ and real Faith!

IMG_3513

Recently, well today, I had a friend ask me what did God show me on 6/23/17? I’ve been telling people- friends, family and believers, that the Lord has recently woke me up.

6/23/17 I was awakened! Before “my awakening” I didn’t even know I was sleep. I didn’t even know that Believers could be sleep. I mean I was loving the Lord, I was somewhat following the Lord, I was in the Church meetings! How could I be sleep?

I was unbothered when I heard about girls living in sex slavery, children in MY VERY OWN  CITY cutting themselves, people on drugs, and prostitutes selling their souls!

But God woke me up. And I love Him differently. I love His people differently. I love my enemies differently. People’s pain affect me. I find myself weeping more because it. I find myself praying more. I find myself DYING to selfishness. I find myself saying Lord use me. And really meaning it!

This is what the Lord has been showing me since 6/23/17. I pray it blesses you, encourages you and empowers you to find your identity in Christ and to walk in Christ enjoying Him as your life!

6/23 The AWAKENING Choose to be a living overcomer! Aka “To live victoriously Daily”

6/24 thru TODAY The Lord has showed me- I was allowing myself to be a defeated Christian  by choosing to love the World, indulging in the pleasures of my flesh, seeking my own will above God’s will.

QUICKLY after 6/23 He began to bring me back to the basics, coming o Him first, believing in Him, Trusting in Him. Allowing Him to take the lead basically letting Him be God and not becoming god myself!

SLOWLY after 6/23 He began to show me my purpose, pull this purpose out of me causing me to seek Him like I’ve never sought Him before. Causing me to love Him and others like I’ve never done before. Causing me to want to die to myself/ decrease so He can increase! Helping me find my identity in Him

SURELY giving me the confidence to walk in Him boldly and use my gifts to bring Him glory while inspiring a generation to do the same

THANKFUL– I’m so very thankful He would wake me up to be alive in the age and apart of the generation and God’s plan to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to build His Church aka His beautiful Bride!

TAKE AWAY – Jesus overcame the World! And now the overcoming One lives in US! We should be spontaneously overcoming enemy, our flesh, and any obstacle meant to destroy us. As we enjoy Jesus as life we spontaneously overcome. THIS HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE since 6/23/17❤️

Would you choose to be a living overcomer?

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins. Please come live in me and  dine with me. I choose you to be my Lord and Savior! In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Dear Church! Let’s have True Oneness- This is God’s desire!

IMG_3416

Dear Church,

What would happened if we had true Oneness and met with each other in Truth and in Spirit. We are in One Body, having One faith, One baptism, One Father, One calling, One Hope, One God. Surely we at least have this in common. Let’s meet on this ground! Let’s fellowship according to this.

Let’s grow in our faith together, separately locally, but together in One body. With man this is impossible but with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. I believe we can have a Oneness that puts the enemy to shame.

I DONT CARE what local Church you meet with, WE HAVE THE same Father, same Spirit, so let’s enjoy Christ together as life putting our differences aside and love the Lord and others together! You may have arrived at a different level of knowledge of Christ, so keep that to you until the Lord says I’m ready for it. But what do we commonly know about Christ together- Let’s fellowship on that ground! No more divisions. No more arguments.

Let’s just pray for one another. We can do this my brothers and sisters! WE MUST DO THIS my Brothers and Sister- this is God’s desire that we WOULD BE ONE as God the Father and Jesus the Son is One we too must be one. We can do this Church! Let’s do this.

Lord keep us One in YOU! Only In You can we be truly ONE! #TheChurch aka #BodyOfChrist aka #BelieversOfChrist #WeAreOneInSpirit #LetsGrowInOneFaith ❤️

How to fight the enemy in these evil days?!

Do you have all the tools you need to be successful in a fight against the enemy in these evil days?! Loving God above all else and walking in the Spirit you spontaneously put on the Armour of God!

Ephesians 6:13-20 tells us how to fight against the enemy:

img_3246.png13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. (The Full Armor of God is needed for this fight, scratch everything YOU thought you needed. Your full attire and weapons aka armor is below)

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, (Practice speaking God’s Word which is Truth and be found in Christ which is our righteousness) “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.” Romans 1:17

15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. (Go into all the World and preach the Gospel to all creation (this includes Satan and the enemyMark 16:15 [Preach the gospel Your local grocery store, gas station, bus stop, school, work and on vacation])

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. Romans 10:17. Position yourself to hear the Word of God. Reading the Word and Hearing God speak is needed)

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (God’s salvation, His speaking and the Bible is needed for this war) If you don’t know Scriptures get some planted in you by memorizing them (it helps me if I sing them, any way you can remember them do it)

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (The quickest way to get in the spirit is to say, “Lord Jesus” The Bible says that no one can say Jesus is Lord except for by the Holy Spirit 1 Corinthians 12:3 and “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.“) John 1:1

19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, (Pray)

20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. (déclare the gospel boldly in the Lord Jesus)

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you came into the World to die for my sins.

How to deal with anxiousness

img_31731.png

Greetings my fellow readers,

The Lord has done a lot in my life since last Friday 6/23/2017. And I have been seeking first the Kingdom of God and I am in this why did he say this phase and what should I do when I experience this.  In the sense if it is commanded in the bible I want to know why and when to use the tools He has provided in His kingdom.

I had this spirit of anxiousness come upon me and I didn’t know how to get rid of it. I thought that I needed to fellowship and sometimes if the Lord is leading us to that then that is what needs to be done. However this time the Lord was not leading me to fellowship. Hmmm Where is the peace then Lord? I would pray and I would be fine and then the anxiousness would come back. I began to listen to this song:

Be Still By Steffany Frizzell Gretzinger and Bethel Music- This song has scriptures being song- Be still my heart and know that YOU are God alone stop thinking so much and just let go.

img_3174.png

Oh this song helped usher me into a peaceful place in Christ. Singing it calmed my nerves, this was truly a beautiful experience. We need to know how to use the Word in a way that helps us defeat the enemy and also why the Lord commanded us to do what we do. After using google to search scriptures regarding anxiety. The Lord reminded me how David would sing and then the Lord reminded me about the story with him and Saul, so I began to search the scriptures and found “Whenever the spirit from God came on Saul, David would take up his lyre and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him” 1 Samuel 16:23. What is this?

I am learning there is a why behind everything the Lord does and I want to be a living overcomer here on Earth overcoming this World and my flesh. Thankfully the Lord is giving me wisdom to seek Him. Because I am so weak and His strength is made perfect in my weakness. The lord also showed me how I tried to make the Church my God and this is evil. For he alone is God. Sure the believers have God in them and that’s why fellowship is essential to our Christian life. But we must follow the Lord’s leading in everything we do ( I am definitely still learning). God is THE perfect Shepard.

If you want to learn more on why singing matters click here. That blog post is from a blog site called unlocking the bible and I found it quite refreshing to see why singing matters from a biblical view. This blog included 7 reasons Why singing matters. And the reason were backed up by scripture, pretty cool huh?

May God be your peace. “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

God said he is “I AM” He is everything we need He is all and all. He alone is God.

Disclaimer: Please do not take this blog and think that I am saying if you take pills for anxiety to stop. I am simply writing about my experience and how the Lord led me to these truths. I would strongly encourage you to talk to the Lord and pray about what you put in your bodies.

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you came into the World to die for my sins.

Would you choose to be a living overcomer? By Sherry Thorpe

IMG_3132Oh the power in just this question. Someone in the Church life recently asked me at bible study, “If I asked the Lord to make me a living overcomer wouldn’t He make me a living overcomer!”

When he asked me the question, I couldn’t even answer the question. Because I knew that the Lord would make me a living overcomer.

Why did this question bring so much fear to me? Have you ever heard someone say, “Be careful what you ask for because you might just get.” I knew that if I said yes Lord make me an overcomer he would make me one. I knew that He would be faithful in doing this. Later while driving home, completely wrecked in a beautiful way the Lord exposed my unhealthy love for this World. My fear of losing it. This World has failed everyone that has touched it. And this World personally showed me it’s fallen and it has nothing for me.

The Lord said we must love Him more: 

IMG_3131

The Lord through dear Believers and God’s word showed me how this World is death and God is calling me out of this World into His marvelous light. All I needed to do is say yes! Once the Lord showed Me my love for the World and how my love for it leads me and has led me straight to destruction, that alone made it so easy for me to say, “Lord make me an overcomer!”

Once I did that the Lord began to show me how being an overcomer is something He intended for us all to be in His Son.  Not only was this God’s intention but it’s his desire. Let me show you where it says this in His Word.

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 The Lord has overcome the World so it only makes since that we should overcome the World sense we are believers and have His life within us.

“‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.‘” Rev 2:17

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:4-5 

Let us be glad and rejoice, and let us give honor to him. For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself.” Rev 19:7 The bride here is the overcomers/ Also the reality of the 5 bridesmaids who were prepared in Matt 25:1-13

Choosing to be a living overcomer today is different than just being a Believer of Jesus today in this age. The overcomer in this age aka age turner goes against the World in this age while choosing to be a living overcomer in this age. The believer who chooses to befriend the World will be perfected later in the next age. So eventually ALL believers will be overcomers! The living overcomer in this age made a decision to allow the Lord to make them an living overcomer of the World in every aspect of their life before the Lord returns. The living overcomer chose/chooses Jesus over the World in this age. The overcomer surrender(s)(ed) their life to the Lord Jesus and he helped them become an overcomer in this age, this can not be done in ourselves! To be an living overcomer in this age the Lord truly becomes our everything in this age. Eventually all believers will be overcomers after the next age!

The Church life plays such an important part in us becoming overcomers because their going on in the Lord serves as an empowerment and encouragement to keep us going on in the Lord. And we are One with them as the Bible tells us He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:17 May we practice the Oneness because this serves as a perfecting factor in our personal life. Being that the Lord wants to Build His Church the Oneness is crucial to being an overcomer as well! The perfecting process starts now! I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one–as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. John 17:21

Daily we can enjoy the Lord as our life. In enjoying the Lord as our Life, He becomes our life. In becoming our life we are being transformed. In being transformed in Christ we are constantly building God’s church because we are In Christ. In being transformed through Him we overcome this World daily and eventually totally. The moment we notice that we aren’t in Christ we should repent to restore the uninterrupted fellowship and flow with God and enjoyment of Life so we can continue growing in Christ and being built into Christ’s beautiful body aka the Church! One thing we should openly admit is we are not always in Christ. He is always in us but we are not always in Him. “… And may they be in us” John 17:21.  In knowing this it helps us to be aware to the fact we may not always be in Him and to check ourselves. This is something I’m learning myself but if you are ever in doubt just say Lord Jesus. “We can only say Jesus is Lord in the Holy Spirit” 1 Corinthians 12:3. Actually calling His name should be part of our daily activities. Calling His name turns our hearts and being to the Lord. This should be our daily practice being in Him. Being in Him we spontaneously overcome. Lol Enjoying the riches of Christ by being In Christ causes us to overcome this World. Letting Him be our ruler, by guiding us as we are respecting and loving Him as Lord. What a beautiful design! This is to overcome daily to be In Christ at all times! This is to be a living overcomer.

So would you choose to be a living overcomer?

“Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:5

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media.

Belize, In the Spirit, Travel

Morning Devo- Perfect paradise By Sherry Thorpe

IMG_2501

I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to some pretty amazing places and I’ve made the decision that My favorite created place to visit so far is Belize.

Belize is a country located in Central America and oh yea, it’s an English speaking country. The people are influenced by the carribean and Britain. Feel free to browse my other blogs about Belize. You Betta Belize it!

I love Belize because it’s so natural and authentic country! The food is fresh and the People aren’t trying to impress you with the things they own or the things that they posses that hides their true face. Those people are genuine, down to Earth, and super duper authentic. They seemed to be calmer, more relaxed, less stressed than people I usually meet in the USA. These people were transparent in their speaking and their actions. Silence only occurred when you took time to think or enjoy your surroundings. There’s so much Natural beauty around that it’s hard to ever forget the creator. I’m so surrounded by man made things here in the US that if I look away and get distracted I think more about the man/woman that created the thing rather than the Creator Himself.

Thats the created place on Earth that I love the most! However the best place that I have discovered  is in Christ. To me this is a physical place where I feel protected, all of my shame and failures are addressed and gone. All of my pain is comforted away. The Perfect One who knows me in and out, how I operate, and  what I need lives in Me. I have the opportunity every morning and throughout the day to choose to be in Him, In His presence, and conversing with Him. Jesus is my paradise on Earth.

I have tasted Jesus and I’ve felt alive so I can confess that He is the bread of Life and He is good for food like His word proclaims in John 6:35. I have tasted this Bread of Life and I can confirm that He is good. Since I’ve tasted and seen that God is good the choice that I have to make is do I want to be with Him forever. Does my living reflect this choice? Does my daily decisions reflect where I want to go?

It’s ok to fall, but it’s not ok to stay down. The Lord Himself will come and get us when we fall because He is the faithful Shepard but it’s our choice to get back up again. It’s ok to be in the process of being perfected and it’s ok for us nkt to practically perfect that’s what forgiveness and mercy is for. The Lord is merciful but His mercy is not to be abused or misused. Paul warns us in Romans 6:1-2 “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?” Romans 8:37 We are to be more than conquerors through Christ who strengthens us to get back up and endure In Christ to the end. To the Lord returns to us. Failure will come because we still have our fallen flesh but we are to “submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7 We want to resist the Devil in order to be In paradise experiencing our wonderful Christ as Life. We have to remember that Christ is better than anything that this World has to offer us. He is our perfect place to travel to In the Spirit our very own Universe to travel to. It’s our escape zone, our safety net, our secret place, our healing factory, our renewing zone, and our transformation place.

So what should we do to remain IN CHRIST? Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness… Matt 6:33 (this is not to seek first “The American Dream” And guess what? When we seek Him first He ALONE gives us the desires of our heart. Psalm 37:4 Take delight in Him first and YOU WANT BE DISAPPOINTED. You can delight yourself In Him anywhere at work, at school, in the restroom, in the kitchen, at home, at a friend’s house etc.. The Lord has given us total access to Him wherever we are we can say Lord Jesus and enter into this Beautiful paradise!

Have you experienced the perfect paradise?

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media.
