What would happen if we said YES to God?

This became embedded in my soul when God asked me to go to Africa in September of 2008. The outcome? 786 souls were saved in 34 days! Am I throwing around numbers to impress someone? No. I am throwing them around to proclaim that GOD is GOD. I am just a common individual who knows who she is not, but walks in who HE IS. What is God asking you to do right now? When we know that we know - it is Him asking. Say yes, obey with no hesitation.




Am I “effective “ ?

Writing this as unto myself……

I filled out a form yesterday of “ministry application “
The question was something like,
“what do I consider success in my ministry ?”

So, then take it even further….
ask ourselves …”What will I consider success in my life “
Am I EFFECTIVE…to me success is only success if I have an
“EFFECT”…..What “EFFECT am I having on others ?
What “EFFECT is my ministry having in the world ?”

God speaks to me from HIS WORD..

Acts 14:1
“ AT Iconic Paul and Barnabas went “as usual” into
the Jewish Synagogue.
There they SPOKE SO EFFECTIVELY that a GREAT NUMBER of
Jews and Gentiles BELIEVED.”

1. Paul and Barnabas went as USUAL….this is “how they lived”
It was in their DNA….to share the gospel so full of
Jesus, so full of the HOLY SPIRIT…that others
turned to JESUS and not to themselves……their LIFE
was about JESUS CHRIST …period.
2. It was for all….JEWS and GENTILES….who ever God puts
in front of YOU…..we give them JESUS.
3. THEY SPOKE SO EFFECTIVELY, what is in you, will come
out….what is in you, is all that will come out.
There is a verse in the Bible ( Jeremiah 5:14 ) that
God will put HOLY FIRE on our words….. FIRE…HOLY FIRE.
That what we say will burn off the chaff….. will nail
the truth as truth. But, it has to be HOLY – FIRE, amen ?
4. It is God that draws ALL men unto HIMSELF…so if Paul
and Barnabas spoke and many were saved ? Who is in them,
who came out ? JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, JESUS…..
The draw…..in Paul and Barnabas….was the magnet of
JESUS CHRIST…..period, it is THE ONLY reason…that
they were “SPIRITUALLY EFFECTIVE “
5. What is our definition of “being effective today ?”
In our family – to JESUS
In our friends – to JESUS
In our business adventures – to JESUS
in our work – to JESUS
in our ministry – to JESUS
in our RETREAT….. TO JESUS …seriously.
in our LIVES we live daily, to our spouse, our home –
to JESUS
6. EFFECT – EFFECT – EFFECT – EFFECT….we ARE…
having an EFFECT on others….
a DRAWING TO JESUS CHRIST
a turning away from JESUS CHRIST

our worldly things should still draw others to JESUS
it is our tool…..
our talk…..
our home…..
our conversations……
Stand under the shower of The HOLY SPIRIT…
Spend it being filled by JESUS CHRIST…..
Spend it with HIM……deeply…..
GET so FULL so that when “ your as usual day “
will be that…..
“ a great number believed “.

In The Name of JESUS …..

Acts 5:18
“ They arrested the apostles and put them in public
jail. 18. But during the night an angel of the Lord opened
the doors of the jail and brought them out.
20. Go, stand in the temple courts, he said, “and tell the
people the FULL MESSAGE OF THIS NEW LIFE.”

The Apostles….were doing what The Lord wanted them to do…
and God in the most miraculous way, a way that had not, even
one human involved in the protection and provision and the
way out. HE IS GOD.

21.” At daybreak they entered the temple courts,
as they had been told, and began to teach the people.”

They endured….they stayed “in” what God was instructing
them to do….

Then they were attacked again :

28. “ We gave you strict orders NOT TO TEACH IN THIS NAME.”

29. “Peter and the other apostles replied: “ We MUST obey
God rather than men!”

38. “ For if their purpose or activity is of human origin,
it will fail.” 39. But if it is from GOD, you will not
be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves
fighting, against God.”

*** so how important is it :

To truly know that it is of God in what you are doing ?
To put your complete trust once you know in God alone ?
To do ALL that God asks you to do ?
To make sure we do not operate in the flesh with decisions
but to make decisions solely in the Spirit ?

Because they made decisions in the Spirit…..
then the spiritual way the LORD does things was applied
to their mission….you didn’t see anyone or thing,
open the jail……

Outside the Church….

Posted on March 04, 2019 under Uncategorized

I think of how cool it is when we anticipate the
presence of God , the power of worship, the altar calls
and watching and hearing and being with God in His house…
just how GREAT it is ….all the time, every Sunday…..

Going to bed with Acts 4 on my mind…..
The healing of the lame man …
Happened on the “way to the Temple”
the man was going to the gate of the Temple…

so….

it happened EVEN BEFORE they went into
The Temple/ Church…..

Peter and John were filled with The Holy Spirit,
filled with the power of God, filled with the
wisdom, insight and discernment…BEFORE..
BEFORE they ever entered The Temple…..

The movement of God , the healing happened
through Peter and John….out in the publics
eye….

1 Peter 1:4
“ For by these He was granted to us
His precious and magnificent promises, so
that by them you may become PARTAKERS of the
divine nature, having escaped the corruption
that is in the world by lust.”

What would it look like if we took this as
serious truth, “we are partakers of His divine
nature ?”

They took it back to The Source = JESUS CHRIST…
all God, all Him that empowers, ….

To me this passage is such a DEEP CHALLENGE to us
today….

1. to not wait until we enter Church to see
the miracles of God.
2. to desire to LIVE in the divine nature of God
now….so that we might be “partakers, participants “
WE are …….“in Christ”…..
3. to take it to the next step of not just talking
about, but pressing in…..to every open door is walked
through to the 10th degree…IN CHRIST…

vs. Acts 4: 17
“ Everybody living in Jerusalem knows they have done
an outstanding miracle, and we can not deny.”

vs. 13 “Peter and John were unschooled, ordinary men ,
they took note that they had been with JESUS.”

This takes it straight to us,
our relationship with JESUS CHRIST
our desire to not call the Pastors, the elders, the
deacons, but we as ordinary, HAVE JESUS CHRIST….

HIS PRESENCE outside the Church….
so that the world can not DENY…..
to that point
to that degree, may we live.
IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Get HUNGRY to anticipate and be a partaker
a participant of HIS DIVINE NATURE.
