No man knows the hour….

Matthew 24:36 (New Living Translation)”However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.”

Hello to my WIFI Ministry Subscribers, family and friends…  I write on today with a heavy heart, but nevertheless, I feel the the rain… I can’t explain it to anyone, but if you ever felt God’s rain in your life you can identify with what I’m trying to convey….    I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it’s raining in my heart and God has opened the flood gates of heaven on me, and it really raining in my world…

‘Open The Floodgates of Heaven’-
Bishop Paul Morton @ GE Patterson Church

I learn on today that I lost a long time friend that recently shared her vision with me, and God had so many wonderful gifts and ideals inside of her….  I’m thankful that God allowed her on last week to share her vision with me…    As we came to the conclusion that saints of God need to realize that there is plenty of work in the vineyard to be done…   I totally agree….

She will be truly missed..    It’s amazing that her vision was in alignment with the vision God has given to me many of years ago…  There is a book that has been pressing heavily that I’ve been wanting to share with the world for over 28 years named “Let my Baby Live”….  I recently realized that I was that baby that needed to live and not die…  I know this story I’m holding will bless some young woman’s life and possibly save some little lives that probably would not make it to the world without some guidance from God… I’m compelled to hurry up and release this book because NO man knows the day or the hour that our will be cut short… However, I’m certain that if we write the vision and make it plain, it shall live on forever….

God has given me a vision and  he has instructed me to teach and preach his Gospel to a dyeing world…  I’ve been commissioned by God to do his wonderful work…. I don’t a want a choice, and I’m certain that this is my only choice I have left in life and that is to fufilll my  God given purpose that I was put here on earth to fulfill…

I’m just thankful on today that God has opened up the flood gates of heaven to me, and it’s raining…  I feel the rain… It’s all good, and it’s all God!!!!

Habakkuk 2 New King James Version (NKJV)

2 I will stand my watch
And set myself on the rampart,
And watch to see what He will say to me,
And what I will answer when I am corrected.

The Just Live by Faith

Then the Lord answered me and said:

“Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.

“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith.

Woe to the Wicked

“Indeed, because he transgresses by wine,
He is a proud man,
And he does not stay at home.
Because he enlarges his desire as hell,
And he is like death, and cannot be satisfied,
He gathers to himself all nations
And heaps up for himself all peoples.

“Will not all these take up a proverb against him,
And a taunting riddle against him, and say,
‘Woe to him who increases
What is not his—how long?
And to him who loads himself with many pledges’?
Will not your creditors[c] rise up suddenly?
Will they not awaken who oppress you?
And you will become their booty.
Because you have plundered many nations,
All the remnant of the people shall plunder you,
Because of men’s blood
And the violence of the land and the city,
And of all who dwell in it.

“Woe to him who covets evil gain for his house,
That he may set his nest on high,
That he may be delivered from the power of disaster!
10 You give shameful counsel to your house,
Cutting off many peoples,
And sin against your soul.
11 For the stone will cry out from the wall,
And the beam from the timbers will answer it.

12 “Woe to him who builds a town with bloodshed,
Who establishes a city by iniquity!
13 Behold, is it not of the Lord of hosts
That the peoples labor to feed the fire,
And nations weary themselves in vain?
14 For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
As the waters cover the sea.

15 “Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbor,
Pressing him to your bottle,
Even to make him drunk,
That you may look on his nakedness!
16 You are filled with shame instead of glory.
You also—drink!
And be exposed as uncircumcised!
The cup of the Lord’s right hand will be turned against you,
And utter shame will be on your glory.
17 For the violence done to Lebanon will cover you,
And the plunder of beasts which made them afraid,
Because of men’s blood
And the violence of the land and the city,
And of all who dwell in it.

18 “What profit is the image, that its maker should carve it,
The molded image, a teacher of lies,
That the maker of its mold should trust in it,
To make mute idols?
19 Woe to him who says to wood, ‘Awake!’
To silent stone, ‘Arise! It shall teach!’
Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver,
Yet in it there is no breath at all.

20 “But the Lord is in His holy temple.
Let all the earth keep silence before Him.”

How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.” …

“Let it rain!”

Greetings to you all, and God’s blessings to God’s people
on today and forever more!

My God today, I’m still on fire from last nights sermon preached by Bishop T.D. Jakes…

 1 Kings:18 – The drought is over…..

 

 

Elijah and Obadiah

18 After a long time, in the third year, the word of the Lord came to Elijah: “Go and present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the land.” 2 So Elijah went to present himself to Ahab.

Now the famine was severe in Samaria, 3 and Ahab had summoned Obadiah, his palace administrator. (Obadiah was a devout believer in the Lord. 4 While Jezebel was killing off the Lord’s prophets, Obadiah had taken a hundred prophets and hidden them in two caves, fifty in each, and had supplied them with food and water.) 5 Ahab had said to Obadiah, “Go through the land to all the springs and valleys. Maybe we can find some grass to keep the horses and mules alive so we will not have to kill any of our animals.” 6 So they divided the land they were to cover, Ahab going in one direction and Obadiah in another.

7 As Obadiah was walking along, Elijah met him. Obadiah recognized him, bowed down to the ground, and said, “Is it really you, my lord Elijah?”

8 “Yes,” he replied. “Go tell your master, ‘Elijah is here.’”

9 “What have I done wrong,” asked Obadiah, “that you are handing your servant over to Ahab to be put to death? 10 As surely as the Lord your God lives, there is not a nation or kingdom where my master has not sent someone to look for you. And whenever a nation or kingdom claimed you were not there, he made them swear they could not find you. 11 But now you tell me to go to my master and say, ‘Elijah is here.’ 12 I don’t know where the Spirit of the Lord may carry you when I leave you. If I go and tell Ahab and he doesn’t find you, he will kill me. Yet I your servant have worshiped the Lord since my youth. 13 Haven’t you heard, my lord, what I did while Jezebel was killing the prophets of the Lord? I hid a hundred of the Lord’s prophets in two caves, fifty in each, and supplied them with food and water. 14 And now you tell me to go to my master and say, ‘Elijah is here.’ He will kill me!”

15 Elijah said, “As the Lord Almighty lives, whom I serve, I will surely present myself to Ahab today.”

Elijah on Mount Carmel

16 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab and told him, and Ahab went to meet Elijah. 17 When he saw Elijah, he said to him, “Is that you, you troubler of Israel?”

18 “I have not made trouble for Israel,” Elijah replied. “But you and your father’s family have. You have abandoned the Lord’s commands and have followed the Baals. 19 Now summon the people from all over Israel to meet me on Mount Carmel. And bring the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”20 So Ahab sent word throughout all Israel and assembled the prophets on Mount Carmel. 21 Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”

But the people said nothing.

22 Then Elijah said to them, “I am the only one of the Lord’s prophets left, but Baal has four hundred and fifty prophets. 23 Get two bulls for us. Let Baal’s prophets choose one for themselves, and let them cut it into pieces and put it on the wood but not set fire to it. I will prepare the other bull and put it on the wood but not set fire to it. 24 Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the Lord. The god who answers by fire —he is God.”

Then all the people said, “What you say is good.”

25 Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one of the bulls and prepare it first, since there are so many of you. Call on the name of your god, but do not light the fire.” 26 So they took the bull given them and prepared it.

Then they called on the name of Baal from morning till noon. “Baal, answer us!” they shouted. But there was no response; no one answered. And they danced around the altar they had made.

27 At noon Elijah began to taunt them. “Shout louder!” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.” 28 So they shouted louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears, as was their custom, until their blood flowed. 29 Midday passed, and they continued their frantic prophesying until the time for the evening sacrifice. But there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention.

30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come here to me.” They came to him, and he repaired the altar of the Lord, which had been torn down. 31 Elijah took twelve stones, one for each of the tribes descended from Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come, saying, “Your name shall be Israel.” 32 With the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord, and he dug a trench around it large enough to hold two seahs a of seed. 33 He arranged the wood, cut the bull into pieces and laid it on the wood. Then he said to them, “Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood.”

34 “Do it again,” he said, and they did it again.

“Do it a third time,” he ordered, and they did it the third time. 35 The water ran down around the altar and even filled the trench.

36 At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. 37 Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”

38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.

39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord—he is God! The Lord—he is God!”

40 Then Elijah commanded them, “Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!” They seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valley and slaughtered there.

41 And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.” 42 So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees.

43 “Go and look toward the sea,” he told his servant. And he went up and looked.

“There is nothing there,” he said. Seven times Elijah said, “Go back.”

44 The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.”

So Elijah said, “Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.’”

45 Meanwhile, the sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain started falling and Ahab rode off to Jezreel. 46 The power of the Lord came on Elijah and, tucking his cloak into his belt, he ran ahead of Ahab all the way to Jezreel.

‎”Claim your SEASON! It’s NOW or NEVER!! It will Happen when you Push through Negativity and DOUBT!” Bishop T.D. Jakes.

“Don’t follow no one that don’t hear anything… Until you can hear the invisible and the untangible…”

Take your right hand out and look at it… Your right hand is a symbol of authority… You think you are waiting on God, but God is waiting on you…” Push past your flesh, your weaknesses, your insecurities, and your unbelief… God sent you to those people, that drought… You are a rainmaker.. God has giving you permission to make it rain.. I pray it fall on your ministry, on your staff, on your member… That you will go into all the earth and do what God has called you do… You are not standing under closed heavens.. If this is not your season.. Then when? “It’s now or Never!!!” Behold I give you power… The rain is in your hand.. It will happen when you push through the veil of negativity and sabotage… When God spoke it, he gave you the permission to do it!!! If you would raise your hands, the harvest will come.. That’s whey the enemy keeps attacking.. He keeps attacking you because you are a rainmaker… You are making haste…

What do you see in your Spirit? What do you hear in your Spirit? – “It’s raining at my house in Irvine, California!!!!” Praise him…

He’s an on time God…. Yes he is!!!

Habakkuk 2:3 (ESV) For still the vision awaits its appointed time;

it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow,wait for it;

it will surely come; it will not delay.


On Time God – Gospel Legends Volume 2 soloist Dottie Peoples

Mark 11:22 – Jesus said to his disciples, “Have faith in God!

 

Greetings to all of my WIFI subscriber’s , family and friend’s… We should always be thankful no matter what, knowing that God has got our backs…

Sometimes,  it may seem that we are all alone and no one cares… I’m here to let you know that God Cares, and he is an on time God… Yes he is…  He may not come when we want him to, but he will be to your rescue in his own timing…  It’s not that God has forgotten about you, it’s that he was probably just waiting on us to get our life ready for the blessing or transition and plans God has for our lives.

I’ve learned in life that just because God says wait, does not mean he is saying No… It just simply means not now…  Please know that when you are delayed something, you are NOT denied…  Your blessing is building up even better as you wait.. Say: “Increase!”

I do believe that timing is everything…   There are some things I’ve been waiting on God to do in my life a long time, but I’m not discouraged that time has elapsed and I’m growing older… What to do when you have been seeking God for a long time has not come to pass?…  This is what I recommend…  I recommend that you keep your request before God if you know God said this is the plan for my life.

I found in waiting that you must have FAITH.. Don’t ever give up on your dreams….   What God promised to you will come to pass because he is an on time God that may not come when we want him, but he will be there right on time, so just hold on to God’s unchanging hand…  He will never leave you or fasake you….  He will never put you down, and make you feel less than a person while you wait… .  Just trust in him and keep the faith and know that all things work for the good according to God’s purpose and God’s plan…

“Not our will…. But God’s  will be done in our lives!!!! “

And when Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus, into his royal palace, in the tenth month, which is the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign, the king loved Esther more than all the women, and she won grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins, so that he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.

Life Detours

John 14:6 (ESV) Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me. 

I’ve found in life that things rarely go the way we want them to according to our plans…  It’s often that we forget to seek God first for the real plans he has for our lives.    A lot of times we tend to put the cart before the horse and jump the gun and find ourselves feeling run over, run down and and for some of us just beat down and used.

Nevertheless, I’ve come to let you know that as long as you continue to seek God and keep him first in your life, no matter what life in general throws at you, you will be able to stand, stay with God and know the “PURPOSE” for your life.

See,  I found out just the other day that life will hand you some things so bitter and so hard to swallow that some circumstances of life can make you become bitter if you let them.   Ahhhhh… I said, “If you let them.”    Now, what do you mean by that?  Well, I’m certain that we do have a right to get angry when men and women trespass against us..  Naturally, the human mind  is designed to do one or two things or more when under pressure…  Number one….  Most of us instantaneously become angry…  Number two… Some of us just shut down, and number three… Some of us become combative  and want to fight…   I heard Donnie McClurkin say, “The last thing you want to do is get a Christian mad, because they will come out fighting…”Wow.. I’ve been in a number of fights myself….     Nevertheless, when we seek God first, he detours us from certain situations that most of us find ourselves in because we tried to do things on our own… 

In all things seek God first… Simply said:   “Put God First….”    Know the purpose for your life… What I’m really trying to say is,  when you know your purpose in life, life can hand you whatever it will or may, and you can still stand and weather the storm. and you can live and stand your ground according the scriptures and the script and plan that God  has for your life…..

See, it’s the devil’s / advisory’s  job to throw us off track… Yes, I said the adversary’s  job to get you off track, and off focus  so he can come in for the kill and try to steal, kill and destroy your joy….  See, even the enemy knows that if  they can steal your joy, they can try and steal your testimony…. .  But I come to tell you today that  Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world…   Serving bold notice that  the Devil does not have the victory over any of our lives….   Only if you give it to him…. “Stay with God!!”

I decree and declare on today that the Joy of  the Lord is my strength, and I shall have the victory and walk in the purpose driven life that God said I shall have….  Just stop and reach up and take what’s yours….   We have power, we just have to stop and call on the name of “JESUS” when we feel like all hope is gone, and we feel like  life detours are too much for us….   Just remember that we have a God that standing by with his arms opened wide waiting on us to come his way and  ask him for guidance, and help…. I tell you, if you seek God in everything you do, you can’t go wrong….

Now, the trials of life will come without notice, but stand strong, and know that the glory of the Lord will reveal itself to you by leading and guiding your footsteps in the right directions…  Please know that God has your back in all situations….

 Glory… I feel your anointing and power of God on today as I was detoured on last night..  Taken way out of my way as I drove home, delaying me about 1-2 hours…  Oh, but somebody say I began to plead the blood of Jesus, and say God as long as you guide me home safely, I know everything is going to be alright…   See, I had on my traveling shoes!!!   We have to learn to put our trust in him!!!!      Trust God, he will always steer you in the right direction….

Just tell the Lord:  “When the storms of life are raging… Stand by me Dear Jesus!!!”   Don’t you dare give up, hold on and be strong, because God will step in and it won’t be long…. Just don’t give in… Hold on!!!!

Love is….

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (ESV ) Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Greetings to my wonderful WIFI ministry subscribers, family and friends all around the world….  I awake

today with “LOVE” on my mind… When I think about how Jesus gave his only begotten son that we may have

life…. That’s enough right there to let me know that Jesus loves me, oh yes he does…

Well, I’ve come to the conclusion that “I’m in Love with Jesus and he’s  in Love with  me….”  This is the only long term relationship

I’ve  ever kept in these  46 years outside of my family… I’m so happy to report that there has never been a

break up between us, and our love just keeps on getting  stronger and stronger..  Even the times when I did

not do right, he just kept right on being God throwing his loving arms around me, and for that I say “Thank

you”   When we come to realization and realize that ‘Love” is really all we need… Everything else falls in

place… I love some of the finest of things, but I’m convinced that only what you do for Christ will last…

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)  17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed

away; behold, all things are become new.

 

Everyday as I  walk around I see all of his great creations and how he made everything so beautiful and so

unique…  I amazed everyday that the sun comes up, when the stars and  moon comes out at night…  I’m

amazed with  man in general how we are all different, but yet all the same…  Our animals are some unique

and beautiful creations also..   I’m fascinated with all the beautiful flowers, plants and trees… When I look all

around I see nothing but Love letting me know that there is a God that sits high and looks low.   Everyday, I

take the time out to just say Thank You Lord for showing me what Love really is…

New Direction– I’m in Love with Jesus

Scripture reading:  Genesis 18:10-12 –

10 Then the LORD said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.”

Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him. 11 Abraham and Sarah were already old and well advanced in years, and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. 12 So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, “After I am worn out and my master is old, will I now have this pleasure?”

Verbatim Notes:

Susanne Boyle felt the lime light in 2009 on Britain’s Got Talent…. She had an acute disability… She was teased at school… At age 12 she joined the church choir and began singing and doing karaoke performances at pubs in and around her village… She cashed in her savings and made a demo tape and sent it in to several people which told her that she was not photogenic or marketable…   Her mother kept encouraging her…  She always lived at home beause of her disability….   Her father then died 19 months later..

She ran into an old friend that asked her is she still singing?  She sang a song called “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables..  She is the oldest person to debue an album at 48.. She was viewed as the most influential person in 2012…    She ranked 2nd highest to the beattles… She discovered her talents after she was discovered..

Your are on a different time schedule….  I’ve been usheered in the spirit realm to tell you that “It’s not too late!”  God is going to make sure you do it!

Declare:  ‘It’s not too late”   There was a delay getting off the ground because there was low visability….  The pilot made an announement that the people who are on the ground are worried about something that I’m not worried about.. We will make up for lost time in the air… You are going to get there on time….   The things that have been slowing you down are the people with pre-occupation have been slowing you down… The enemy knows if I ever take off , you are going to make up for lost times…  Whatever you thought you were going to achieve these past 3 months are going to come to pass… Your storms are going to help you go pass people that’s been trying to hold you…. God recorded before the foundation of the world that you are going to get it yours..

J.K. Rowland’s did not find her sucess until she was 64-years-old … Mozart had his worked publised at 46-years-old..    God is getting us ready to receive success….  I’m now delivered from other people experiences… I know exactly what I want for my life….

Genesis, chapter 18 – He is sitting at the door of a tent…. He wanted us to be aware of where he was sitting…. They wanted us to be aware that he was at the edge… The door of the tent… Everything you have been through in 2012, God is gettting you ready… It’s when you don’t even realize where you at is when God steps in and starts to prophesy…  I will return in a year and you and your wife will have a child… Sarah is 89 and Abram is 99…. She asked the question… Can I still have pleasure?   Can I enjoy myself in this season in my life?     I know some of you are praying for money, etc…  But I’m gone let you sit back and enjoy your life in this season… I’m giving you permission to be pleasurable in your own self…..

Here is the question most of us are to proud to ask…  Will you give me my years back where I can be happy….

This is going to be a season to enjoy yourself again….   Sarah is not worried about how it’s gone come out of her… She is worried about how it’s gone get to her…  There is no anesthesia for her to take… She is not thinkng about the pain of the process… She is thinking about the pleasurable experience….  If I’m gone go through pain, don’t let me go through for nothing….    The enemy meant it for bad, but God meant it for good… It takes a lot to make me cry….  I just want to know can I be happy again and can I smile again…

She is past her child bearing age… She is on a different time and a different schedule…   She is a late bloomer..   Her probability to produce is not based off of what other people think… When I get ready, nobody will be able to stop me…  It’s almost time…  I know it looks off but I’m going back to school… I know you guys looking at me strange but my book will be published…

What I want  does not line up with the time table but I do believe that it’s my time…  You have been seeing doors open for other people.. You have been faithful over a few things but God is getting ready to give you much….

You don’t even understand….  Weeds are frustrated flowers…  Austrailian flowers… I’m pulling weeds out of your garden… I’m getting ready to move People that have been trying your cut off your dreams… They have been jelous because they cannot duplicate your anointing…

Sarah laughed… This is not a laugh aimed at the enemy… .It’s not a laugh directed toward haters… What God is going to do or me by now and memorial day… He is getting ready to give me the last laugh… How could I doubt my God?   Is there anything to hard for my God?    I”m getting ready to laugh between now and May 31… I under esimated my ability mixed with God’s Prophesy.

If God ever promised my anything I know that I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me… Everything God told me in my dreams is gettign ready to c ome to pass… God never spoke to Sarah… He spoke to somebody that was seated next to her… He told him to tell her that everyting that is in side of you is getting ready to come to past… You have one year for you gifts to take off and your imagination to take off… He had me sitting next to you to tell you that the race is not giving to the swift or the strong but unto those that endure to the end… You can laugh if you want but I’m about to be debt free… Every place that my feet shall tread shall be blessed…  As many sands that is on the sea shore, you name shall be great!  You shall be above and not beneath…

When the doctor gives you bad news Laugh… When the bill collector give you bad news  laugh… When the teacher gives you bad news about your child  laugh because the world did not give me this joy and the world cannot take it away..

Six months ago, I had to cry my self to sleep… But when I rose this morning, I had not doubt…..   Your next blessing is going to make you laugh…  When you go to the ATM and see more money… You bettter sing… I sing because I’m happy and his eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches over me!!

Hallelujah!!!   Be seated sir, mam… Verse number 14 in Genesis 18  asks a critical question…. Is there anything too hard for my God?   I believe I’ll say that again:  “Is there anything too hard for my God?”   Clause B says:  There is a  set appointment, and specific time that God has written down when your blessing is getting ready to come…  He said to Sarah, not only are you going to give birth, but you are going to see that boy grow… I want you be be strong enough to see him get married, graduate… I’m adding strength to your life..

This is for about 9 of you….   God has entrusted me to tell you that he is not going to let the liberation’s of your child kill you… You went through to much just to let them see you go crazy…I’m going to give you health so you can see them turn their lives around.. I’m going to let you live long enough… There is an appointed place… I’m getting ready to bless  you even when the person with don’t believe it!    I’m getting ready to bless you Abram because you have the faith… but Sarah is a doubter… but I’m not gone let her lack of faith stop you from getting your blessing….  Because of your faith…. I”m not going to allow you to miss another miracle because of a miserable mate… Just because they are unhappy, I”m not going to let you be unhappy… I”m getting ready to bless you because I saw you when you were in your agony… Even when you are with the person that don’t believe with you what you are trusting God for… I’m still gone bless you… It’s not too late…  Don’t look at your biological clock…. It’s not too late…   I know you are gauging where you are off of other people’s success… I’m here to tell you that it’s not too late…

Jesus shows up, and he is met by Mary and Martha… Had you been here the one you love would not have died… It’s too late, by now his body stinketh… Jesus said show me where you laid him?  It may be too late for you, but when I call your name, you are getting ready to go forth… Even when your own family give up on you… .You better not let Jesus show up… All he has to do is call your name… He said “Lazereht come forth”   When he calls me, I have to move to a new place…..   The bible says when they called his name somebody had to move the stone for Lazereth to come forth… He came out jumping even  though his body was wrapped in death clothes.. I have death on me, but God has me covered… In the time of trouble, he shall hide me… I know I don’t look my best, and I’ve been through some trial and some stroms.. But for God I live and for God I die… The bible says when Lazereth begans to praise him.. Death Clothes began to fall off… IF you praise him stress, worrry anxiety and worry is comeing….  Say neighbor it’s not too late…

I know you’ve been waiting, and I know it’s been a trial , but I want to tell you that it’s too… Whateever you prayed for and asked him for is getting ready to happen… Whatever you wrote down is coming to past… It’s not too late… If you see the devil before I do.. Tell the devil it’s too late… You should have killed me while you had the chance… Now, it’s too late for  me to be a drug addict… It’s too late for me to be stressed over a relationship…. It’s toooooo late!!!!!   Oh my….  Hey!!!  Hey…. I can’t get no real praisers in here..

It’s not too late!!!!     I feel something electric in the room! I need you to just cry out from your belly… “It’s not too late!!!”

It’s not to late for you to fall in love and find the person of your dreams… It’s not to late to step out on God and follow your dreams… I”m praying to God adjust your time table… I pray whatever it is God gave you the gumption for, that you will go after it….

The birth of Lord and savior Jesus Christ… That is not the case for Abram and Sarah.. He gave the prophesy… It did not negate the fact that they had to do the work… If they would have just heard to prophesy and not put in the work their prophecy would not have come to past… If you work you gift, and your fruits, you gift will make room for you… Celebrate a gift you have that you have not been using… Believe that something is going to happen so you can use your gift.. God is going to use your gift to convert a non beliver… I’ am going to use your anointing so somebody can see that the gift of God is still at work….  When the unsaved say they want to go to work with you… Just laugh… When the supervisor that is usually not nice to you , then they start to be nice to you, just laugh…

God help us work on undeveloped gifts…. Intercessors, healers, preachers prophets have a gift that is resting upon them.. God please develp their gifts, and please don’t let another year go by without them working in their gift… Left their fruit pay off the them… I’m praying that there will be a battery of testimonies that God has been good to me….  Give God praise!!!

It’s not too late to get right with God… While you were in worship, God adjusted your time… He is not just going to give you a long life… He is going to give you long healthy life… God if you gone let me stay, let me stay with life more abundantly… I don’t want to have to take an abundance of pills andwaith for a physical therapist to come to my house… I want you to live that you have life and have life more abundantly… .I want you to see your grand children and great grandchildren give their testimony…  It’s not too late…

Here’s what you have to give….  Sarah laughed and said, can I still find pleasure?  They stopped trying because they stopped believeing that it was possible… Stop beleiving what other people say… You waisted enough faith on other folks diagnosis…  Do you know how many nights and opportunities God had the chance to snatch you?   Can you recall and count how many people gave up on you?

Stop waisting God’s time!!!!  When he keeps giving you more time to get yourself together.. Without any theatrics or drama connected to it….. I want to open up the doors of the church and let you know that you have to get saved… The sand has come down in the bottle… You have seen so many people go before you, and you know you have waisted enough of your time, and God time… You know you need to step on on faith and beleive God… I know if he can give Sarah and Abram another chance at 90, he can give you another chance too… I know you done waisted time in the streeets and in the clubs, but it’s not too late to give your life over to Christ…

Move and talk to 3 people and ask them do they have a church home and are they saved?  This is not the time to be reserved…

You are in the right place at the right time, serving the right God… I know that right… If you know that’s right , come on and give God some praise…

Can a man or a woman rob God?   I now you probably robbed God the first months of this season, but it’s not to late to give your tithes and offering.. In the month of May, God is going to do something unusual and bizarre in the month of May…. I’m going to do something miraculous… When this good thing happens, it’s going to leave them shaken-ed, rattled and unnerved… May is going to be a month of odd occurrences…   How many of us trust God to do something strange.. .Buckle up for un-candid opportunities… God is getting ready to give you great favor with somebody that is going to seek you out…    Get an odd offering… I need your offering to end in an odd number as a testament of your faith… I want something odd to happen… Those that are watching on line, I want you to give an odd offering… $53, $73.00, $103…  Lord in the month of May do something strange, unusual and unscripted… I trust you to even me out with an odd blessing…

Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me….

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (ESV) Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Today I stop  to show my gratitude to God and take the time to say:

“Thank you Lord for all you’ve done for me!”   

“If I had ten thousand tongues, I could not thank you  enough for all you are doing in my life”…

Everyday is not Sunday, but life still just keeps on getting better and better as I yield my life to you dear Jesus and begin to focus on God all by himself and pray for other’s rather than focusing on my problems and what I don’t I have…  I realized a few months back when I really sick and in tremendous chest pain that it’s not about me, but it’s about “Jesus!”

God has always been my all and all, and that right there makes is to easy to pause and say

“Thank you”

on this Saturday in the month of April 28, 2012….
