January 2012 HAPPY NEW YEAR! WE WELCOME YOU!
*Words Of Life Is Back On Line!
JESUS IS ALIVE!
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (KJV).
We go through with Jesus. (Zechariah 4:6.)
HAPPY NEW YEAR! To all of our brothers, sisters and friends in Christ! May your year be full of ; great testimomies of the goodness of the Lord in your lives, testimonies of; success, fulfillment, joy, good health and happiness, abundance, peace, prosperity, health and healing, and every need met at every moment of space, and point of time. May the riches of Gods blessings continue to fill your lives, and may the Peace of God which passes all understanding be yours, and mount guard over your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus throughout this New Year 2012!
For those seeking a fresh infusion of His Word and direction for the days ahead, we are confident in the knowledge that His Word never changes, and remind you of Revelation 18: and 21, by the power of Holy Spirit. His Word stands! We continue to give thanks to the Lord for His Mercy, Grace, Love, Provision, Guidance, and Protection of 2011 and His Grace upon Grace for bringing us through another, promised filled, miraculous year! We are still excited here in Mount Clemens, Michigan for the blessings of each year, once again, for all that the Lord has seen us through, for all that he has done, is doing, (the harvest of lost souls into His Kingdom)and for all that He is about to do.
He wishes that none should perish, but that "ALL" should come to repentance and the knowledge of His saving grace! 2 Peter 3:9
We thank Him for the miraculous demonstration of His power, showing Himself mighty and strong on our behalf, to those who believe and to those He is drawing by the anointing of Holy Spirit.
We are thankful for all He is about to do, not only in and through our lives, but also for all He is doing in the lives of others, as we share in the communion of His Saints, and are ushered into His presence, and seek His face, being thankful for His faithfulness! While Biblical Prophecy is being fulfilled, the events ahead can seem daunting, but we build ourselves up on our most Holy Faith and know that He is able to do exceedingly abundantly MORE than we could ever ask or, imagine! And know that He is still in charge, and is preparing the way for His Kingdom reign. How great and Awesome is our Lord and God who is worthy to be praised! We have come this far by faith. trusting in His "Holy" Word.
For we are, through Christ Jesus, the seed of Abraham, are heirs to the promise, and Abrahams blessings are ours! Through Jesus Christ we have a goodly heritage and inheritance.
(Gen.13:16,22:17,18,26:4.), (2 Chr. 20:7), (Psalms 89:4) and (Psalms 105:6) We receive all that He has promised in His Word and we are truly "THANKFUL" for His Blessings as we continue to walk in Obedience and practice Holiness in our daily lives as we discern the times. We do all things through Jesus Christ who is our strength! He is not slack concerning His promises.
All Grace, Earthly Blessings, and Favor ABOUNDS TOWARDS US, as we walk in obedience and ENTER INTO another NEW YEAR, 2012. The Word of God has not changed. Old things have passed away. (Our old way of thinking,) we have put on the new man which is Christ Jesus! What "He" has promised, "He" will do. The Lord has promised to move on the behalf of those who have put their trust in Him. Do not become weary, "Stand still and see my salvation" saith the Lord of Hosts! Our old way of thinking and doing things are done away with as our spiritual eyes are opened, and truth is revealed!
We enter in this New Year with THANKSGIVING! Being fully persuaded that God is able to do; exceedingly abundantly above all, and abundantly more than we could ever ask, or imagine or even think, and He will do exactly what He has said he will do according to His promises, according to His riches and glory through Jesus Christ. Making all earthly blessings and favor abound towards those who continually put their trust in Him! What an awesome God we serve! Wondrous in all His works!
(1 John 1) and (II Corinthians 9:8.)
Let every thing that has breath praise the Lord! Psalms 150: 6.
"PRAYERS WORK! TRY IT TODAY"
As we enter into another new year filled with blessed hope, and promise we walk in love toward others, and continue to lift up prayer and intercede for:
*Our children ... Focus and direction for 2012.
* Pray for the lost.
* Our brothers and sisters,' soldiers' fighting on foreign soil.
*Those who are persecuted

Armed Forces in our Prayer Request Box or Guest Box, or request a prayer
covering. Remember also to lift up prayer for:
*Those who are in authority over us, that we may live in peace according to the Word.
* The homeless.
* The strength and health of our families.
*The peace of Israel
Those around the world who are persecuted for Christ's sake.
* National Repentance throughout 2012.

STILL GOING FORWARD with Jesus in 2012. Man may change, but God has not changed.
Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever!
(Romans 1:25),(Philippians 3:13)
(Hebrews 5:12-15) and (Hebrews 6:1-20)
HAVE A BLESSED RESURRECTION SUNDAY! EVERYDAY!!!
HE IS RISEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
ALSO, DON'T FORGET TO SIGN OUR "GUEST BOOK" LOCATED ON THE GUEST BOOK PAGE.
We realize the reading may be lengthy. But it is designed for our viewers to:
"THINK ON THESE THINGS" TO FIND; SALVATION, HOPE, PEACE, RESTORATION, AND DELIVERANCE! Please feel free to visit as often as you like.
We look forward to your comments, and prayer requests!
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law. We are redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus! "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:" 1 Peter 1:18,19.
We hope that your New Year is off to a God Blessed and Holy Spirit filled start, full of; favor, blessings, abundance, the miracle manifesting power of God, every need met spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, emotionally and socially in every area of your lives and an abundance of Godly Wisdom for the New Year as your mouth is "full" of the Word of God! Blessing others with the power of the spoken Word.
As we look back on the events and challenges of 2011, Natural disasters, increased weather activity, economic downfall, moral decline, pestilence and disease, we see more than ever that prophecy is being fulfilled, and the days we now see are surely the beginning of sorrows! Only we know that the beginning of sorrows preceeds the reign of of our Lord and Saviour. Although challenging, we continually give thanks to our God for bringing us through another fruitful, Holy Spirit filled, and "God Blessed, miraculous year" and for the demonstration of His supernatural power! As we continue to look forward to His return. We are the seed of Abraham and heir to His promise. We walk in obedience and like Abraham, who's obedience brought the blessings of God. "And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's Seed, and heirs according to the promise" (Galations 3:29). Believe it or not, although everyone has the opportunity to receive the promise, not everyone will! Why? because the promise was made to Abraham and his Seed, not to "Seeds," as of many, but as of one, and to thy Seed, which is Christ. We continue to pray for the harvest!
REPENTANCE / OBEDIENCE and HOLINESS are still on the agenda for 2012. We walk in the blessings of our Lord and Savior and Declare the blessings of Deuteronomy 28. "THANKSGIVING" is our prerequisite to a 'fruitful' prayer life as we enter His Gates with 'THANKSGIVING' and into His courts with PRAISE and bless His name. Psalms 95;2 and Psalm 105.
MORE WORDS for 2012....FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, VIGILENCE, PRAYER, REPENTENCE,"COME YE OUT FROM AMONG THEM!!!" Rev.18:4 and The BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST! God has not changed. Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever! (I Peter 5:8.) l Corinthians 28:20.
There are those who may still be on the fence when it comes to, "who" we believe and "what" we believe, but do you know 'What' you truly believe? and is your confidence, trust, hope and assurance in 'WHO' you believe? Our God tells us that signs shall follow those who believe.What are the signs following you today? What signs will follow you throughout the New Year? And into eternity?
God always desires His people to be; healthy, healed, prosperous, whole, delivered and freed from life's bondage to sin and the wages of sin which separates us from Him, and that we walk in Holiness. We can't experience the richness, and true beauty of His kingdom by walking outside of obedience. According to the Word of God, "the wages of sin is death." We must put off the old man with its lusts and affections, and put on 'Holiness. It is not our righteousness! We are the righteousness of God (through Jesus Christ!) 2 corinthians 5:21. We thank God for the power of the 'Written Word' to loose and set free those who have been held, and taken captive to the bondage of sin. Gods Word is truth, life and power to those who receive. Receive ,or not, does not make His Word ineffective, for His purpose and promises. God promises peace.
(Romans 6:23.)(Phil. 4:6-7
As the Kingdom of God is ushered in, and in many respects still painful on many levels, (the beginning of sorrows, we must discern the times,) many may succumb to the pressures, being moved by circumstances and situations. We walk by faith and not by sight, and are not moved by circumstances,situations, or what we may see. If God did it for Esther, He'll do it for you, if He did it for Joshuah,He'll do it for you, if He did it for Ruth, He'll do it for you, if He did it for the woman at the well, He'll do it for you! He is not man that He should lie. His Word is truth, life, and power to those who believe! He is the same yesterday today and forever.The Bible, although tampered with, is the Word spoken by Holy Spirit through man. It is not a fairy tale as many believe, it is spiritual, and must be spiritually discerned with the help of Holy Spirit. People will believe what they want to believe, and look for signs, things they can see with their own eyes, because, to them, "seeing is believing," who do you believe? The spiritual walk is a faith walk where believing is seeing through the eyes of faith. Do you want to wait til the last trump and judgment day to find out the truth of the matter?
Or, like Noah, be secure on the Ark when the flood comes! Secure your eternity with an assurance now while there is a window of opportunity, walking by faith and not by sight. It remains a choice.Socially, and economically (to name a few,) many are caught up in the world with it's lusts and Lordless affections, some with trepidation, others endure, imbued with anointing, boldness, and authority.
Much has defined the events leading up to where we are today. News of disasters, disruption, lack, poverty can continue to bring distress. Gods ability is not abated. Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever! Continue in love towards others, seek those things which are Spiritual, cling to that which is good as the Lord perfects that which concerns you, walk by faith. No one is perfect, He perfects that which concerns you! The Lord is more than able to accomplish that which concerns His people. Keep looking up, keep going forward, do not look to the right hand nor the left, Gods word is working in your life to bring about the desired result, continue to stand on the word, speak the word. He promises to give us the desires of our hearts! Keep his praises on your lips, and His word in your mouth, let His word for your life be yes, and amen! I believe and I receive.
Father, in Jesus name, we declare that your word will go forth with power in the year 2012 bringing; health, healing, deliverance and restoration to the oppressed, suppressed and depressed, to those who are bound, we speak deliverance. We pray for those who have been seduced and deceived by the ways of the world, those who have fallen by the wayside, we pray for spiritual eyes be opened, that ears be anointed to hear, and that hearts be prepared to receive your truth. We pray for strength where there is weakness, and speak healing and restoration to those whose hearts have become hardened and their conciences seared, we ask the Lord to bind up hurts and to heal wounds, to pour in healing oil by the power of Holy Spirit, that His will be done in every situation. As the World's Way, has been allowed to enter in, and the life of God has been choked out, we speak health retoration and deliverance by the power of Holy Spirit! In Jesus name, we thank Holy Spirit for His presence and loose Gods Mercy, Grace, Favor, Love, and Power as we speak Peace in Jesus name!
The 'WHEAT' never- the- less, "IS" being 'SEPARATED' from the CHAFF, and the spirit of the Lord is moving among His people miraculously at this hour as they are called out!
We continue in love. Rev.18,21. Come ye out from among them and be ye separate!
Are you still looking back on the mistakes of the past? Repent and ask for forgiveness. Are you going forward and entering into the Kingdom rich with predestined blessings which have been prepared for you since before the foundations of the world? Go forward by the grace of God!
(Ephes. 1:5,1:11.) and (Romans 8:29-30.) As astrologers predict, others say, "good riddance" to an old year! Again, however, the year 2012 is destined to be a fruitful year for those who have prepared spiritually, and although "the world" as we know it is changing, those whos'e trust is in it's creator, can walk in confidence. For those who believe and are obedient can expect wonderful benefits from the inspired Word of God. *He is not a respecter of persons. And He perfects that which concerns us.
AROUND THE GLOBE
The year 2011 as the year before it has been an eventful year around the world. Some may see the past year as a year of shaking, and indeed as we see earth quakes, volcanic eruptions, water overflowing their banks, and National debt being on the forefront of many minds. Social unrest in many countries. Many would look at these events and see the Bible as a book of doom and gloom. It is on the otherhand still a book of truth, and a guide to those who believe. The Word of God tells us that in latter times some will depart from faith, and follow the doctrines of demons and devils. (We know them by their fruit.)1Tim 4:1, have you lost faith? With prophecies continually being fulfilled we must continue to look at the spiritual, past the visible, while keeping the eyes filled with light, and thank the Lord for anointing our eyes to see spiritually by the power of Holy Spirit.
Be discerning concerning; plots and plans which hinder the walk into "your blessings." Because of unfocused sight, looking at circumstances, we often times have trouble seeing snares and traps that have been established to trip us up.Yes, unusual times, but also, exciting times! Although we see wars and rumors of wars which followed us into 2009, 2010, 2011 and now 2012, we focus on the promises of God and continue to stand by the power of God and His Word, knowing that everything is unfolding as it should according to His divine purpose and will.
The question is.... are you standing? We know that the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines "stance" as an attitude or position, or stance.What is your standing position in 2012? Are you able to stand in the face of opposition during these days of unseemingly uncertainty? Has God given you a promise? Stand on His Word and claim that promise by faith! Faith is an action word, faith without works is dead! ..."What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." Mark 11:24 Some sadly have given up, being moved by what is seen. Faith is the substance of things "hoped" for, the "evidence" of things not seen. Believing can not be anulled, there are many experiencing the favor, blessings, the miracoulus,healing, provision deliverence and divine intervention everyday! God is not a respecter of persons, good, or bad. The sun and rain sets on them both!
With Gods help, we can look forward to the New year with great anticipation and not as just another day.By the Grace of God there is a new start and a reward for the diligent. Heb.4:16, "Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."
Global Warming is still a topic of much debate, so is the topic of; Flooding, Earthquakes, Border Issues, Terrorism, and infidelity and imorality.There are people of all walks of life still seeking refuge, freedom, and relief from the affects of oppression, suppression, depression regression and the recent recession which has affected so many. Many are looking for security which can come only from putting trust in the God who knows our every need, and has assured us that he is in control!
God is setting His standard. Immorality and the Breakdown of the Family is not business as usual, as a loving merciful God is moving mightily by the power of Holy Spirit at this hour to set the standard, and is setting the standard where many have fallen short. We must choose between light and dark.
As Holy Spirit Filled Christians we reflect on these events prayerfully. (1 Th.5:17).
*If you had doubt, Gods Word assures us from Genesis to Revelation that , yes "I am in control."
While some may have lost sight of who they are in Christ, and lost focus, once again, let us EACH RE-examine 'OURSELVES,' OUR, lifestyles, OUR spiritual stand and motives at this hour as The "Kingdom" of God is ushered in! Maintain your position on your feet, do not become weary in well doing as you continue to go forward. 2012, believers are continuing forward and not looking back on the past, re-living, or re-hashing the old. As we see Jobs wife did as she chose to look back while on their way OUT! And on their way to their 'promised' land, a place away from the decay of a place they once knew as their place of quiet, and peaceable habitation.
His wife on the otherhand, as we see from her actions, probably had deep regret for leaving her friends, the weekend parties, the brief pleasures of gossiping about her neighbours, her favorite shopping areas, and the 'things,' and perhaps family she had left behind. She 'chose' to look back' after being told not to! God had prepared a way for "LOT", his daughters, and wife to escape the place he had known as home. A place where his spirit grew vexed, and uncomfortable every day that he continued there, a place undesirable because of the decay, and lifestyle that had begun to creep in and take control. The same way He made an escape for Lot He has made an escape for you!
His wifes attitude is an example of how our lives are oftentimes molded by things in the world. When God has loosed our lives from sin, and bondages, such as the bondage of the city in which "LOT" and his family once lived. God sent his angels of deliverance. Lot and his family were given distinct instructions to not look back, what are we looking back on? Have you received distinct instructions by the word of God? What is hindering your future progress? What is causing you to turn bitter, turn to salt, and lose your savour? Things which weigh you down, 'things' which do not profit and cause you to lose focus? Solomon likewise, was a man who in all his glory and admiration lost focus. l Kings 11:10. What are we allowing to cause us to lose focus? Is it prestige? the love of money and things? These are well and good, in the right context, but without God, without love they are nothing.Continue in prayer, use Godly wisdom, do not compromise, and walk in integrity.
Are we going forward, forgetting those things which are behind? Pressing forward for the prize? Looking forward to the promises of blessings of peace, prosperity, provision, health, healing, protection and more than enough for the year ahead? Are we looking for divine intervention? the miraculous? Are we looking for the miracle manifestation of Gods power? Or are we looking back stifling ourselves, losing focus, having a form of Godliness and denying the power on our forward journey? 2012 is undoubtedly the year of, and still is the year of accountability. The Lord's Kingdom is being established in the spiritual realm, and will affect every aspect of the natural. Discern between light and dark, good and evil. Hear and understand what, thus saith the Lord! It is a year of focus and preparation, manifestation and quick answers to prayers as men and women of God walk in obedience and expectation and as the Word of God is spoken with boldness and authority.
The Word of God is quick and powerful, and is the anecdote for every challenge of the year 2012.
Not by might nor by power but by my spirit says the Lord!
JUDGING OTHERS AND RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT (1 Cor.6:3)
There has been talk for ages concerning the word "judging". Believe it or not judging others and the use of the word did not begin in the 21st century. How do we define judging? It's definition is one which describes it as having the mental ability to 'perceive' and distinguish. Discernment is also a part of the capacity, or ability to make 'reasonable' decisions as it applies also to practical affairs of life, as the dictionary defines it; good sense and 'wisdom.' Judgment can also be an opinion or a thought, a determination etc. So as 'Christians' do we not make wise and righteous judgement concerning the things of God? Judging ourselves, and among ourselves according to truth?? Luke 12:57. The people knew well about things of little 'spiritual' importance. But, could not judge righteously among themselves!
Some use "judgment" as an excuse as to escape wrong doing and to cause guilt in their accuser. On the other hand there are those who would use the word "JUDGMENT" in Christian circles to "SPIRITUALIZE" their reason for putting other "Believing, Holy Ghost Filled, Washed In the Blood, Praying Christians down. This is sad. But not new, the same thing was happening at the church in Corinth!
We find an example In Corinthians 6. The so called Christians were going to Secular Courts to have legal matters heard. The Christians here lived in one of the largest, richest, and most important cities during their time.Through it's harbors flowed the commerce of the world! Paul, one of the Apostles, had lived there for a year and a half while on a missionary journey where he had founded one of his greatest churches.
But after Paul had been away for a few years, the same church which he founded began to suffer many problems. One of those problems had to do with "JUDGING".
These judgments were being made "outside" of the Church. This is only one of the issues Paul had to address at Corinth where the church was situated. It was unbecoming of true followers of Jesus Christ to bring their grievances before the courts, after all they were supposed to be walking in (brotherly love).
Paul goes on to say in 1 Cor. 16:1, "Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the (unjust), and not before the saints? (1 Cor.6:6).
Paul was speaking to the church! Those outside of Gods Church have their own "Judgment" and therefore should not confuse Christ and the Righteous Judgement of His Church with the ungodly. People are mixing it up. Paul goes on to admonish "THE CHURCH" about their attitude problem by saying in verse 2 "Do ye not know that the saints, (Gods People) "emphasis mine" shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
(verse 3). Know ye not that we shall JUDGE angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
The worlds ways had began to seep into their lives and into the church. The life and attitude of the Christians at Corinth were not distinguishable from those who weren't living a christian lifestyle "Christian." (1 Cor. 6:7).
(Matthew 7:7) and (Luke 39-45)... Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give into your bosom. For with the measure ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."
What are you pouring out into the lives of others and those whom you come in contact with on a daily basis? What are you giving of yourself?
Whether it is Love, Time, Talent or Money,unlike those who give to be seen of men, becoming tinkling cymbals, and making a noise of sounding brass, as the Sadducees, and Pharisees of Jesus time, who desired the best seats, and adulation of man. God gets the glory, when we give with a pure motive, cheerfully, and when we give unselfishly, and without motive, we will receive in return.
It is a promise. (Mal. 3;10).
Arm yourself with the mind of Christ! and put on the whole armor of God: Walk in love towards others, don't allow a root of bitterness to rise up. Instead of taking the high road and suffering a wrong, the "Christians" at Corinth were behaving like unbelievers. Bringing about bitterness, envy and strife and bringing the worlds ways into Gods church, adopting the lifestyles of the ungodly!
Bitterness can have many faces and the roots grow deep! Instead of seeking "revenge" true believers should share with others the God given gifts which we were blessed with.
Forgive even when it seems hard to, seek peace and ask for Holy Guidance.
Through Christ we can do all things!
Christian Believers do NOT "JUDGE" Hypocritically, or Self Righteously. Our walk as true washed in the blood of Jesus, Holy Spirit filled, Bible tote'n, Speaking The Word, Speaking in tongues, True Believers, our spiritual walk should be an everyday walk with the Lord, and not a sometime walk used for convenience, or as an occasion to commit sin or to ridicule or bash others. Paul said that he crucified his flesh daily. Casting down all imaginations and every high thing that exalts it'self against the knowledge of God! Entertaining rubbish will produce rubbish and bring you into it's subjection unless dealt with by the continual use of the Word of God, repentance, and prayer!
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against "all" ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; We see from this scripture that God does not discrimminate and is not a respecter of persons as some believe erroneously, (those holding themselves in high esteem)... because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, the truth of Gods word is not hidden, it is only hidden from those who choose to continue to walk in darkness. (Although many conveniently put on blinders to justify ungodliness and blatant unrighteousness) .... being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse; because that when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but because vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise they became fools, and changed the "Glory" (emphasis mine) of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man... Wherefore God gave them up unto vile affections... (Rom. 1:18).
Before we can point fingers at anyone, two fingers should be pointed at ourselves. Check the Word of God for yourself. Check your own Spiritual radar. There are those who would pull the covers over the eyes of the unsuspecting when they themselves are in need of repentance. Don't be deceived, God is not mocked
In 1 Cor. 4:1-5 we find Paul speaking about the church. We are the church and should evaluate a persons character whether it is a dog or false prophet! We are told to Test everything! Rightly dividing the word of truth. (II Tim. 2:15).
(1 Timothy 5:21,John 4:1-11)
The okee doke is not going to keep the Body of Christ at this hour! We only need to take a good look around to see where the need lies.
(1 Corinthians 5:9-12-13). Again Paul is speaking to the church! The body of Christ!
Jobs friends also "judged" him not realizing that God was working in the midst of his trials.
It is not always what it looks like on the outside.
Have compassion towards others. Jesus had compassion on others, something we see so little of today. He also exposed sin without hesitation and called folk to repentance.
He shared time with His Father through prayer! His direction came strait from the throne of God. He did not confer with man or seek out the advice of others. Although Spiritual counsel from Spiritual leaders in many cases is beneficial. Jesus has left his Holy Spirit to lead, teach and to guide.
Take the rock out of your own eye before you try taking the pebble from someone else's.
Let the Peace of God rule in every situation. (Job 42:7,8) Jumping to quick judgment without knowledge or understanding of a situation can be detrimental. Use spiritual discernment.
Jobs friends were "judging" him without understanding. And had not acknowledged God. We must be careful when making quick "Judgements" and assumptions about a person not knowing that God may be working in the midst of that situation. Or going by hearsay and making assumptions without obtaining "truth."
When we know nothing of the truth of the matter, and should in sincerity seek understanding. If you are unsure sincerely talk with him or her, seek to understand before you condemn. Gods Grace is what matters.
Seek understanding concerning that person in prayer, and pray with them in sincerity.
With God it is a heart thing. God knows what is the mind of the spirit, and He searches the heart of man.
We are to "examine" our own hearts. We are to call upon Him with a pure heart.
(2 Timothy 2:22) God Never said for us to examine the "hearts" of other Christians.Be sure to use Godly wisdom and common sense!
WHAT IS YOUR DESIRE?
"Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when you pray believe that ye receive them, and you shall have them." (Mark 11:24)
God said that he Will give you the desire of your heart. When we seek his kingdom. Be sure to repent of any sin that you may be holding in your heart!
What are you believing God for in your life or for someone else? Is it Peace, Joy, Healing Prosperity, Wisdom, Protection, Guidance, Provision, Love, Truth, Happiness. All of these things and more are ours, when we put first things first. (Matthew 6:24).
You can't serve God and money, man, houses cars, clothes and things. All of these things are good when put into the right perspective. But the Word tells us that we can't serve God and these things too.... "either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other."
The choice is yours. Just as the choice was with the first man Adam and Eve, so is the choice still yours today. Choose you this day whom you will serve (Josh 24:15.)
THE FOCUS OF JAA KANOJIA MINISTRIES IS
"THE HARVEST OF LOST SOULS" INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD THROUGH PRAYER, AND MINISTERING OF THE WORD.
(I JOHN 3:16)
Laboring "together" with our brothers and sisters in the harvest fields.
Apollos watered God gave the increase......(1 Cor.3:6-9) and (Matthew 9:37).
STATEMENT OF FAITH
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived of Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day HE AROSE again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost, (HOLY SPIRIT) the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
The Word, worship, prayer and praise is the (SPIRITUAL) life force which edifies, exhorts and strengthens the body of Christ. It is through our worship and praise that we also give God Glory!
We believe that Holy Spirit teaches us ALL things and leads us into ALL truth!
We believe that Jesus Christ Is the same yesterday, today and forever, we also believe in:
1 John 3:16
"For God so Loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that "WHOSOEVER" shall believe on him shall not perish, but have everlasting life". "REDEEMED" by the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
(John 8:12) We come out of darkness into light.
Some Christians believe that because they are "born again" and have been translated out of the kingdom of darkness, into the kingdom of light (Colossians 1:13) that they will not experience challenges. Be encouraged.
(John 16:33) "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world".

"It's Not By Might Nor By Power
But By My Spirit Says The Lord" (Zechariah 4:6).
HAVEN'T ACCEPTED JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR (PERSONAL) LORD AND SAVIOUR?Realize that with God it is a heart thing, and yes, your relationship with our Heavenly father is a personal matter, no one can make that choice for you but you!
THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE (1) WAY TO GOD. Although there be many 'Gods.'
YOU HAVE A CHOICE!
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life, NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME"
All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. "God hates the sin, but loves the sinner." (Acts 17:30) Know that God loves you, and cares for you. He wishes that none should perish, but that all come to "REPENTANCE." There is an 'Eternal judgment.' Acts 17:31, Hebrews 9:27
(TO BE TRULY SORRY AND TURN FROM OUR SINS.)
2 Corinthians 7:10
(Romans 3:10) and receive eternal life!
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness. God is NOT A RESPECTER of PERSONS (I John 1:9).
Our sins are forgiven, and remembered NO MORE. He casts them into the sea of forgetfulness. Man may bring up your past, the enemy may try to get you to feel worthless over your past but Jesus, forgives and forgets forever. So should we.
Ask God for forgiveness. We should also forgive ourselves and choose to forgive those who may have hurt, misunderstood and or abused you, and go forward with the help of God.
Job had received a lot of criticism from his friends but he prayed for them anyway.
When he prayed for his friends his own circumstances changed! Get busy praying for someone today. Take your eyes off of your problem. It's not to say that a problem doesn't exist. God knows what you need even before you ask! but when we pour out into the lives of others unselfishly it opens the way for Him to move in our own situations. How AWESOME! is our God.
Although it may be difficult to forgive someone who has accused us of wrongdoing, forgiveness is something we must do, if it weren't "doable", it would not be required.
"But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in Heaven forgive your trespasses" (Mark 11:25,26).
Forgiving releases to God the right to judge others.
And releases blessings in your life. He has promised never to leave us, forsake us or leave us helpless or alone. "Vengeance is mine saith the Lord, I shall repay"
Jesus is our help in every situation.
Don't hinder your blessings by harboring unforgiveness in you heart.
Open the door to your blessings!
Read (Psalm 91:13)
Replace the YOU with "I".
Make it personal!
You must believe that He is, believe that JESUS CHRIST died for you, was buried and rose from the dead. (Romans 10:13). Believe or not, is your choice. But in order to receive the promises of God, you must 'believe' and exercise your faith.
The Bible says, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and "shalt believe" in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved" (Romans 10:9). It is written.
THE POWER OF GODS WORD
It may seem hard to believe because of the unbelief and events which led up to the crucifixion but, within a few months of the crucifixion of Jesus, five thousand men had accepted Jesus as their Saviour and had been baptized in His name. What a testimony of God's love.
I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead. Therefore I am saved! I have new life. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus! I am accepted in the BELOVED. I have been delivered from the power of darkness, (from a life of sin and spiritual death) and translated into the Kingdom of Light. I am a believer, I believe that Jesus Christ shed his blood and died for my sins.
I am willing to turn from my sin, and invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal saviour. Old things have passed away (my old way of thinking). All things have become new!
"All things are new in Christ Jesus"
WELCOME TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD!
THE HOLY ANGELS REJOICE!!!!!!
..."Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. (Luke 15:10) KJV
Now get to know Jesus better, read your bible every day! Study and become rooted in the word.
Learn who you are in Christ. The King James NIV is a good start.
*Talk to God every day.
*Pray for direction for your life and ask for direction concerning fellowship with other Christian believers, a place where the WORD of God is preached. (Romans 10:17) Faith comes by hearing...
*Be baptized, (Acts 2:38) Spread the GOOD NEWS!
Tell others about Christ. Be diligent. Stay focused and take one day at a time.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING OUR SITE
