The world has changed...

...Time is passing and if we don't keep up, many will be left behind... In more ways than one. Those of us professing to be Christian as the "body of Christ" we must study to show ourselves approved if we are ever going to bring light of the glorious "gospel of Jesus Christ" with power, to a lost and dying world. We must first renew our own minds to who we are "in Christ".

Romans 12:1 Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind... Every time anyone wakes up regardless if you believe in God or not, the truth still remains that God does not need any man's approval, it's only because of His grace that we woke up... just read the news and you will see that today many people didnt wake up.

Just as the son's of Issacahar (I Chronicles 12:32) we must walk in wisdom and knowledge with the ability to discern the times and seasons that we are presently living in.

It shouldn't take much for us to look around and see that things are changing and time is running out. It should be no surprise to us with what's taking place on the earth, they are only prophecies being fulfilled.

In Matthew 24:3 when the disciples asked Jesus what will be the sign of the end? And He told them that "there would be wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes in different places", which is exactly what that tsunami was, a earthquake in diverse place, it happen under the water.

It's a privilege to be a Christian but more than that, it's a responsibility. We must walk in the word as a lifestyle shining the light into broken hearts with the healing love of Christ, not by talking and condemning but living and doing. Telling people they are going to hell is not
"the good news". "He who wins souls is wise"

As ambassadors for Christ... Called to represent the kingdom of God, not just church goers, but living as examples to our believing and unbelieving family members, friends, and co-workers in every area of life.

Reform must take place in the church if we are going to become relevant once again operating with signs and wonders following, not a obsolete, stiff institutionalized religious organization.
God is always on the move and up grading if you notice he went from the old to the new and we must too! Just as He told Moses to follow the cloud we had better be hearing what the spirit is saying for us to do also.

Taking advantage of today's technology and the many opportunities that's being offered economic and other wise, getting the word out to all the world, staying on the cutting edge, knowing what's going on in the world and the kingdom seeing opportunities when they arise and moving on them.

There's a new church rising that the world has never seen

Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven... There is a big difference between the "church" as we see it today, and the "Kingdom of God". As Christians, we the "body of Christ" are the church. "Don't you know your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit". (1Corinthians 6:19) and the Kingdom of God is in you.

As the world continues to spin we expect to see corruption and ungodliness in a world walking in darkness, but not in the institution we call "the church", however that's exactly is happening. But the word of God lets us know that whats done in the dark will come into the light. Too many of the so-called Spiritual Leaders representing God are the very ones misrepresenting Him in the eyes of those who don't know Him. But as sure as day turns into night there is a division coming between the Church's religious insitution, which is just a "form of godliness" and the reality of the "Kingdom of God".

In Matthew 24:1 Jesus is walking away from the temple and He tells His disciples as they pointed out to Him the beauty of the temple. He said "not one stone would be left unturned" In other words, that "man made" temple is coming down. But His church in going to build by Him not according to man's wisdom or flesh and blood, but by revelation knowledge from God, of who He is... and the very gates of hell shall not prevail against it!

If you would check the history of that temple He is speaking about in Matthew 24:1- you will find that it was built by Herod, under his influence, for his own "political reasons". Even though it was beautiful on the outside and on the inside there was a place called the "holy of holies" but inside that room the "ark of the covenant" was missing, and it was just a mere "form of godliness" but the real glory of God was not there. (sound familiar)

There's a new church rising that the world has never seen!

What's going on?

As we look in the headlines of the news we see wars, tsunami, earthquakes, rain as in the days of Noah in places it never rains and abuse in the church by those we should be able to trust.

It's as if the entire planet is groaning, yet men have eyes but can't see, and ears but can't hear what the Spirit is saying.

We must be careful not to be so critical of others, take a look of what's going on in the church, and remember the word of God says "judgment begins in the house of the Lord" and it looks like it's already started. "Jesus said he who is without sin throw the first stone"

" For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son(Jesus) that whosoever would believe in Him would not perish but have ever lasting life.

We can believe His word and accept what God has done for us through Jesus or not.

What does it profit to gain the world...

and lose your soul, or what would you give in exchange for your soul (Mark 8:36-37)
This world we live in is very temporary, we can be here today and gone today. We must seek the face of God that He might show us the purpose He created us for.As Soloman once said
"we brought nothing into this world and we will take nothing out"(Ecclesiasted 5:15)

We know that it is neccesary to have money, but at the same time, the some of the best things in life are free. Take time to walk in the park with a loved one, encourage a friend, spend time with a child, call someone just to say I love you, take a look at the glory of God, watch the sun rise, or set, listen to the ocean roar, and watch how it comes to the shore and stops at the word of the Lord. Take a deep breath and relize that God is Spirit, and where ever we are, He is there too!

The Holy Spirit is just waiting for us to discover Him. He is the breath of life.

Dare to be you

Don't just do what everyone else is doing, take courage, be bold, be different, be you. God wants us to be successful in every area of our life and soar like eagles. Birds travel in flocks but eagles fly alone. We have been created in the very image of God, and that's not something we can take lightly. As a man thinks in his heart so is he (Proverbs 23:7)

Dare to be you, no one else can.

We live in a name brand, designer conscious world where fashion plays a big role, and every one wants to imitate someone else, lets discover our God-given gifts and talents that's hidden on the inside which makes us orginal and leads us to find the purpose for which we were born. (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
