1. Praise the Lord, thank God for you all. I believe it is the best year ever for the body of Christ. I say that by the spirit I heard this year 2015 is to be the Year of Grace and Favor for the body of Christ like we have never seen before. God has already supplied the Grace by Jesus Christ and the new covenant and He is allowing the people of God to experience grace at another level, and favor at another level. You are probably saying why now, and how come we have not seen this kind of Grace and favor before now. It’s because the world is in such shape now it’s going to take even more favor from God to get things in order. God wants to bless us more and he is doing it by His grace and favor. Why grace, because it is the unmerited and unearned favor of God and that is what people need more than anything else in the world. To know that they are loved and that God wants to bless them even more and it’s not because we earned it, but because his love, compassion, and mercy is extended to us right where we are. Acts 4:33 (And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all).KJV God gave the early church Great Grace to witness to the world of His love and mercy, and I believe that is happening right now in the body of Christ. We are seeing manifestations of great Grace all over the world that is bringing people to God and causing healing and deliverance in people’s lives. There are a lot of things in 2015 that will be troubling, but to the people of God who know their God it shall not come nigh thy dwelling. I believe by the spirit the instructions for the believer to experience this Great Grace and favor we will have to do as it is written in James 4:6-7 (But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you). KJV
- We will have to humble ourselves to God’s word
- Submit ourselves to God
- Resist the Devil by the word of God
We cannot do this on our own through our own efforts but by the help of God and his grace we will make it. You Have Help
2. You may be thinking the year has just started and it seems like things are already headed in the wrong direction. But don’t quit just yet ‘You Have Help in God’. I don’t care what has come your way or what the circumstances look like. We don’t go by what the circumstances say or what it looks as believers. I’m here to tell you it just looks like you are going to lose, it just looks like the enemy has got the upper hand, it just looks like you are headed for financial ruin, it just look like your children are going crazy. Praise be to God it is not based on what it looks like, but what God has said to us in his word concerning us. Ps 118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? Since God is on your side you can’t fail or be defeated unless you decide to quit and throw in the towel. Since God is on your side 2010 will not be the same old same old.
When trouble comes this time go and get your bible and your note book and all the preaching tapes you can find and saturate your self in the word. With the word of God ‘You Have Help’. The scripture says in Isa 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. You Have Help; because the word of god gives us what to say to all these things. In Rom 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? It also says Rom 8:38-39 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. So You Have Help according to the word of God. That means that everything we are doing should be lined up with the word of God. If we are not lined up with the word of God we do not have the help of God. Saints, God is a keeper of his word ‘Jer 1:12 Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it’. Once you are fully persuaded the word of God will not fail you will know that you “Have Help”. You will begin to say The Lord is on my side and I have help. Because I have help I will not be defeated, I will not quit, God is own my side. Go ahead and praise God right now!
3. Last we are looking for partners to the ministry who will support the vision on a regular basis. Our desire is to continue to help the local community we are in and the mission’s field with your support on a regular basis.
1. We are currently helping children here in Shreveport and the surrounding areas with educational tutoring in math and reading. We have a math lab for children and we bring in professional tutors and volunteers to help children excel in the class room.
2. We support annually missions of hope Apostle Earnest and Ora Jackson who have established over fifty ministries in Africa for the preaching of the Gospel.
3. And we are now offering Pastoral counseling to ministries locally and nationally along with Christian counseling to the body of Christ.
We need your continued support for those who have been supporting the vision and we are looking for 1000 new partners this year to join us with spreading the Gospel. Together we can reach the Nations.
God Bless you and we will see you at church!
