“Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him!”

Job 13

Still I Will Hope in God

“Behold, my eye has seen all this, my ear has heard and understood it. What you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. But I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to argue my case with God. As for you, you whitewash with lies; worthless physicians are you all.

Oh that you would keep silent, and it would be your wisdom! Hear now my argument and listen to the pleadings of my lips. Will you speak falsely for God and speak deceitfully for him? Will you show partiality toward him? Will you plead the case for God? Will it be well with you when he searches you out? Or can you deceive him, as one deceives a man? He will surely rebuke you if in secret you show partiality.

Will not his majesty terrify you, and the dread of him fall upon you?  Your maxims are proverbs of ashes; your defenses are defenses of clay.

“Let me have silence, and I will speak, and let come on me what may. Why should I take my flesh in my teeth and put my life in my hand?

Though he slay me, I will hope in him; yet I will argue my ways to his face. This will be my salvation,
that the godless shall not come before him. Keep listening to my words, and let my declaration be in your ears.

Behold, I have prepared my case; I know that I shall be in the right.  who is there who will contend with me? For then I would be silent and die. Only grant me two things, then I will not hide myself from your face:

This will be my salvation, that the godless shall not come before him. Keep listening to my words, and let my declaration be in your ears.

Withdraw your hand far from me, and let not dread of you terrify me.  Then call, and I will answer; or let me speak, and you reply to me.  How many are my iniquities and my sins?  Make me know my transgression and my sin. Why do you hide your face and count me as your enemy? Will you frighten a driven leaf and pursue dry chaff? For you write bitter things against me and make me inherit the iniquities of my youth. You put my feet in the stocks and watch all my paths; you set a limit for the soles of my feet. Man wastes away like a rotten thing, like a garment that is moth-eaten.

Jesus said the Father already knows what we need before we ask (Matt. 6:32). He also knows our desires. But He still requires that we ask Him for those things. James 4:2 says, “Ye have not, because ye ask not.” God expects us to ask!

You made a way!

We should be grateful for the things we have and the people God has placed in our lives to love!  I am certain that the only reason why a Iot of us are still standing is because of the God that we serve, who has made a way! God has opened doors that were closed in our faces and he commanded blessings to be released that were held up from us for years. He calmed the waters, and he restored things in our lives that were lost. It’s not enough to ask God for material things when your life is not order, but it is in order to ask God to continue to restore and change our minds to think good and not evil, mend our broken hearts back together, restore families and do the miraculous like only God can do!

We are  certain that God has some great things in store for us! Keep the FAITH and BELIEVE always especially in 2018! God has showed up and showed out in most of our lives  and for that, I am truly grateful, happy, thankful, and overwhelmed by Jesus’s precious LOVE!

Keep going, and know that the God that we serve made a way for you and he will surely make  a way for me! There is no secret of what our God can do, what he’s done for others he can do the same thing for you!

Let’s continue to pray for those who are struggling with the trials of life and trying to find their way. Lend a helping hand and your prayers to someone in need and pray their strength in the Lord, and believe by faith that God can make a way for them just like he did it for you!

Ezekiel 34:26-29  “I will make them and the places around My hill a blessing And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing. “Also the tree of the field will yield its fruit and the earth will yield its increase, and they will be secure on their land Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bars of their yoke and have delivered them from the hand of those who enslaved them. “They will no longer be a prey to the nations, and the beasts of the earth will not devour them; but they will live securely, and no one will make them afraid.  “I will establish for them a renowned planting place, and they will not again be victims of famine in the land, and they will not endure the insults of the nations anymore.

God is a restorer..

On Christmas Day, #2017 I received one tangible, sentimental gift that came from my niece, Ayisha. As I drove down the dark, desolated road, my son handed me this beautiful, turquoise blue envelope that contained a beautiful card inside and a little blue pouch which held an original Tiffany bracelet, just like the one she gave me brand new, over 20-years-ago that I never took off of my arm. . She restored unto me the bracelet that was forcibly taken from me 4-years-ago as I cared for my Dad dying with bladder cancer. It was a painful ordeal that brought tremendous hurt and pain to my life. Nevertheless, life goes on and I want someone to know that no matter what may happen in your life, stay positive, keep your head up, and keep it pushing and turn all of your problem and worry over to God because he is a healer, a provider, a comforter and a restorer.

The bracelet I received on yesterday has helped me to release all the pain inside that led up to the most devastating, traumatic crucifixion of my life. It helped me to realize how blessed I really am to be alive after being beaten by 10 cops for no reason at all in a cell and stripped of my every possession, down to my expensive Wacoal brazier that I never got back.

Getting this bracelet helped me to know that I did overcome after being treated less than dog. It hurts but I had to face reality that I shall continue to do good no matter how people treat me. I understand that it was a real life Jesus moment that only I could pay the price for doing a good deed. (the tears won’t stop falling) but I feel God doing the miraculous in my life.

Thanks again to my niece, Ayisha, I really appreciate you for helping my heart to heal. No bandage needed. God has me in his care.. In the book of Deuteronomy 30:3-13 explains how God will restore the lost things in our lives. I have enclosed the scripture as a reminder to myself that God is man that he can’t lie. God is a RESTORER!

Deuteronomy 30:3-13

“God, your God, will restore everything you lost; he’ll have compassion on you; he’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. 4 No matter how far away you end up, God, your God, will get you out of there 5 and bring you back to the land your ancestors once possessed. It will be yours again. He will give you a good life and make you more numerous than your ancestors. 6 God, your God, will cut away the thick calluses on your heart and your children’s hearts, freeing you to love God, your God, with your whole heart and soul and live, really live. 7 God, your God, will put all these curses on your enemies who hated you and were out to get you. 8 And you will make a new start, listening obediently to God, keeping all his commandments that I’m commanding you today. 9 God, your God, will outdo himself in making things go well for you: you’ll have babies, get calves, grow crops, and enjoy an all-around good life. Yes, God will start enjoying you again, making things go well for you just as he enjoyed doing it for your ancestors. 10 But only if you listen obediently to God, your God, and keep the commandments and regulations written in this Book of Revelation. Nothing half hearted here; you must return to God, your God, totally, heart and soul, holding nothing back. 11 This commandment that I’m commanding you today isn’t too much for you, it’s not out of your reach. 12 It’s not on a high mountain – you don’t have to get mountaineers to climb the peak and bring it down to your level and explain it before you can live it. 13 And it’s not across the ocean – you don’t have to send sailors out to get it, bring it back, and then explain it before you can live it.”

Much love to each of you. Stay diligent and prayerful because our God owns everything including PEACE!

Peter Heals a Lame Beggar

◄ Acts 3:2 ► You can’t force anyone to come into the Lord’s house. God will not force himself on you. You must open up your heart and let him in and accept him, just like the begging man did at the gate called beautiful in the Bible. #themanatthegatecallbeautiful!

Acts 3

“One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon. Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him. Peter Speaks to the Onlookers While the man held on to Peter and John, all the people were astonished and came running to them in the place called Solomon’s Colonnade. When Peter saw this, he said to them: “Fellow Israelites, why does this surprise you? Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. You handed him over to be killed, and you disowned him before Pilate, though he had decided to let him go. You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you. You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this. By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see. “Now, fellow Israelites, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders. But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus. Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets. For Moses said, ‘The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you. Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from their people.’ “Indeed, beginning with Samuel, all the prophets who have spoken have foretold these days. And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’ When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.”

All I want for Christmas is LOVE, TRUTH, PEACE and HAPPINESS!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6  (ESV)

To each of our subscribers, family and friends, on this Christmas day, we bring you greetings of love, and glad tidings. Our prayer is that we understand the reason for the season. We celebrate Jesus on today!  We celebrate his life that he lived on this earth for 33-long-years. The birth and the story of Jesus is a very unique.

The bible says in  the book of Matthew: 1:18-25: “Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: …

Wow, can you imagine being in Joseph’s shoes and having to yield to the voice of the Lord and believe by faith that he can make this relationship work, and be a father to his son whom he had no pleasure in making? Come on now, put yourself in his shoes and think how he must have felt.  This story is intrinsic through and through from the beginning to the end. However, I just wanted to paint a picture of how this situation  of divorce an d separation turned itself around because Joseph was willing and obedient to the Holy Spirit. We Must Learn To Be OBEDIENT to the Holy Spirit and know the voice of God!

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

I could go on, but I will leave it right there and let  that above verse sink in and marinate into your spirit. See Jesus’s life was built on LOVE, TRUTH, JOY, PEACE and then JESUS went around making people HAPPY.

In his 33-years-of-life, he healed the sick, he raised the dead, made blind men see, he made the lame walk, and he made the  mute talk. He went around doing the miraculous! What a mighty God we serve! We serve a God that sits high and looks low! We serve a God that is worthy to be praised.  In the book of  Psalm 113:3  reads: “From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’S name is to be praised.” Oh, yes he is! This is why we celebrate Christmas! We celebrate Christmas because our saviour yet lives in us, and he lives in our heart and he lives in our soul and he lives in our minds and he lives in our spirit! When you think of Christmas, think about CHRIST and the sacrifices he made that we might have life and have life more abundantly. Do you realize the sacrifices this young man made?  He would go on to do what NO MAN on earth has ever done! I know somebody reading and is wondering what am  I really trying to convey. All I’m trying to say is Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice that you and I upon acceptance of him could be free.  Our salvation is built on nothing less than JESUS! JESUS CHRIST,THE SOLID ROCK I STAND!  I cannot think of one person in this world that would die for me. Jesus did that! He died that you and I may have life and life more abundantly.

The bible says in  the book of John 3;16-17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” This scripture shows the LOVE God has for us. Oh my God! I could go on, but I know, it’s Christmas and we must go and open those material gifts.

I tell you on today, the only gift I desire is the gift of eternal life.  The gift of love and truth. The gift of kindness and the gift of hope. The gift to help and the gift to build and not tear down. The gift to give and and the gitt to share my time with someone who may feel alone. The gift to educate the world about our Savior, Jesus Christ. The gift of peace and happiness should be wrapped by itself and be given to everyone you know. All I’m trying to say is that there are gifts that MONEY cannot buy. The GIFT of HOPE is priceless. The gift to be healed and pain free!  The gift to be made whole! There are those who don’t care if they never get the house on the hill or that Bentley,  There are some God sent people that will give it all up just to be in the presence of God and feel his power and feel his love and feel his peace. That’s all I desire on this Christmas is to feel the things money can’t buy.

I’ve spent all year trying to make God proud! I’ve spent my year trying to believe that God will give me the gift of love, truth, peace and happiness. It has come in several forms. It may not have manifested in the caliber I desired, but I’m grateful that it did. So, as I say that, it leaves question is there more to give? I’m glad you asked?  There is more LOVE to give. There is more TRUTH we all can tell. Yes, Love will give you PEACE and in turn will bring you HAPPINESS! That’s what Jesus is all about! This is why we celebrate our Jesus! We celebrate his life on today!  As we celebrate his birth, lets not forget the sacrifices he made on calvary. Let us not forget that he was born sinless, and died sinless that you and I might have the right to the tree of life. Aren’t you glad on today? I’m so glad that Jesus lifted me! I’m singing loud on today!!! Glory Hallelujah Jesus lifted me! #THANK YOU JESUS!!! Thank you for saving a wretch like me!  I once was lost but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see! #GlorybetoGod! #Ifeelmyhelpcoming All of my help cometh from the Lord, oh glory!!!

If I could take one more minute of your time, I would let you know that Jesus hung, bled, and died for our sins.  He rose on the 3rd day with all power in his hands that you may live and may live life more abundantly. Take time to tell you family about our savior Jesus! Let someone know that it’s not too late to accept him as their personal savior. There’s no better gift than the gift of SALVATION! Oh, glory! Don’t worry about what you don’t have to give, but worry that one day, Jesus is coming back, and he is coming back for a church that does not have a spot or wrinkle. He shall appear in a moment of twinkling of an eye. Will you be ready? Will you be ready  when Jesus Come? All you have to do is accept him. Accept him as your personal savior. Then take the next step to baptized and then learn of him. Get yourself a good bible based church and get active in Christ.  It’s just that easy. It’s like a newborn baby that starts out on milk, and grows to the point where they need meat. Our Christian journey is just like that!  It wont happen instantaneous but if you hold on to God’s unchanging hand, it will happen. Trust me, I know! I’ve been with Jesus from my birth up until now, and it’s been a Christian experience that I wouldn’t trade for nothing. I would not trade this journey that I’m on right now for every dollar in this world. Jesus is the way, the truth and light!  I’m going to leave you with this last scripture that’s on my heart in the book of John the 14th Chapter and the 6th verse, and it reads:

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Merry Christmas to you all from WIFI Ministries / 2nd Corinthian Missionary. We love you all on today and pray someone was blessed by the message conveyed in this post.

Also we would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to those that share this special day with Jesus! Happy Birthday!!  We love you and pray you feel loved as celebrate the the birth of Christ. Please know that you are somebody, and Jesus loves you and so do we!

Where O Death is Your Victory? (Isaiah 57:1-2)

Where O Death is Your Victory?

(Isaiah 57:1-2)

 
*** This part: O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”
Please keep me in your prayers. My heart is very heavy. Today marks 3-years that my Father went home to be with the Lord, and today I find out another one of my friends went home to be with Lord. A special shout out to my Dad: Reverend J.E. Thomas, the Founder of 2nd Corinthian Missionary, and employee of the City of Long Beach for over 40 years of service. I love and I miss you Daddy!

Pastor J.E. Thomas
affectionately known as Daddy to me <3

Special tribute to my Friend, Elder James Ray Tibbits you will truly be missed in the Kingdom of God and in the world of Fitness. You exhibited faithfulness to your call, and for that I commend you dearly.
This breaks my heart. He truly was a Man-of-God full of FAITH, and LIFE.He left a great legacy behind of FAITH and FITNESS. I will always remember him and cherish our friendship. I met him and his family while having dinner several years ago at the old Denny’s on Culver in Irvine. We exchanged ministry cards and we’ve been friends down to the end. This hurts really bad because today was the same exact date, three years ago my Father passed away with bladder cancer. My heart aches and is very heavy for you and your family. I’m so sorry for your loss, but heaven’s gain of a beautiful soldier in the army of the Lord! Please accept my prayers, condolences and deepest sympathy. This truly comes as a shock! It’s really hard to understand why our loved ones are taken from us, but find comfort in knowing that he is with our Lord and Savior , Jesus Christ. He will be missed.  Covered Wagon Motel  Ministry and Body Balance Fitness was his passion. He loved God’s people! #rip  Elder James Ray Tibbits

Elder James Ray Tibbits

We all know how hard it is to lose a loved one. Lets try and remember the good and happy times we spent with our beloveds during this Christmas season. We loved them, but God loved them best! #peace #goodcheer #celebratetheirlife #heavenisabeautiful place
