Preaching for this generation.
Are you ready?
Dear God have mercy on those of us who say we know You. Dear Father in Heaven, please show all of us by your Holy Spirit where we are lacking and open our eyes to things needing addressed, needing repented of, a change of heart. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ I ask and give thanks for it. AMEN

Hatred stirreth up strifes:
But love covereth all sins.
1 Peter 3:15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the HOPE that is in you with meekness and fear:
How can we have hope. I know more days than not it is tough to find it and hang onto it throughout the day. Holding onto it simply for your own sanity without trying to put a smile on your face and convincing others you have hope! Right? Can anyone relate to what I am saying?
Well, first off we have NO HOPE if we are looking to this messed up world to provide it for us. This place gets more hopeless by the day! We first must know God! We must know His word and seek Him daily.
Let’s see what the infallible word of God has to say regarding hope.
1 Thessalonians 2:19
For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
I find it interesting that in the verse just before 19, the end of verse 18 it says….
But Satan hindered us.
Paul is telling his brothers and sisters that he would have come to them to continue to encourage them and help them but he has been hindered by Satan and that this was temporary and he cannot be with them in presence but HE IS WITH THEM IN HEART.
THEN, he asks for what is our HOPE, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? THEN he asks, are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming?
I glean from this that our HOPE is not in our ever changing circumstances of our lives where we may find ourselves or those we love being hindered by Satan for a brief time. NO, NO, our HOPE is in KNOWING we will be in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming.
Do you believe He is coming? If you do then that is certainly our hope. If you don’t believe it then you need to begin by asking the Lord to help you in your unbelief. Ask Jesus Christ to show you, to teach you, to reveal Himself to you as only He can.
Let’s see what else the word of God has to say.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have NO HOPE.
For IF we BELIEVE that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore COMFORT one another with these words.
YES…YES, brothers and sisters! Now that is the HOPE I am talking about! We cannot expect to have hope in the things we see around us in this world, but if we keep our minds on the things above we can have hope knowing the Lord God WILL do what He has said He would do!
1 Thessalonians 5:8-11
But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the HOPE of SALVATION.
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to OBTAIN SALVATION by our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
p style=”font-weight:bold;”>Wherefore COMFORT YOURSELVES TOGETHER , and EDIFY ONE ANOTHER, even as also ye do.
ENDING WITH THESE WORDS.
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Prophetic Message when he gave it in 2001. Here we are in 2016 and it is still a prophetic message.
In the book of Daniel we read how our enemies beef is really against God, Jesus Christ. They hate that we believe the laws of our living God. The principles we stand on, the foundation is what they despise. John 2:22 When therefore He was risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this unto them; and they believed the SCRIPTURE, and the word which Jesus had said.
p class=”text” style=”color:rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:medium;line-height:normal;”>Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.
Pastor JD Farag
But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign Lord; in you I take refuge—do not give me over to death.
Our Father in Heaven wants us to depend upon Him! Recognize that it is the Lord who protects us from danger, it is the Lord who is our refuge, strength, and strong tower. The very sovereignty and prerogative of God is good, even if the results of that sovereignty do not prevent a loved one from dying, or heal a sickness of a close friend. Our God is not a stranger to our struggles and the real pain we feel in this life, He is with us. Lord God, hear our prayers as we go through terrible pain and troubles! Holy Spirit, intercede for us and teach us to trust the Lord! Amen!

Remembrance of those who fought for you and I! Those who died for our freedom! Who are still fighting for the rights of all Americans.
Many it seems are so disrespectful of what it even means. They say take the flag down. So many are ignorant of just what this nation once stood for. God was the foundation. Many will disagree with that and you have the right to do so. It doesn’t change the fact that once the moral fiber was still grounded in God Almighty. This administration has lifted a couple of things that have opened the flood gates wide open. Calling good evil and evil good. We know it. We can feel it. It is in the very pit of our stomachs. This president has spoken blasphemy against the very Creator. He hasn’t just done this horrific thing behind closed doors but he has done it in speeches across the world. When doing this he has not only shown the world who he is and what he believes but he has also said in a loud and clear voice that the evil is welcome to come on in! Satanism can come on in full force! He will back the evil agendas of everyone out there and call it freedom and rights for all. He will at the same time tell ALL Christians to get off your high horse. Regardless of what he is pushing through he will slam the people who believe in Jesus Christ and have accepted Him as their Saviour. Maybe he just wants to be sure we don’t stand up. He wants to put some fear in us before we get any bright ideas about opening our mouths. We certainly don’t want to be called bigots or haters. Brothers and sisters we are no such thing!
As far as I know the United States of America Flag STILL FLYS! God is STILL ON THE THRONE!
It might look dark. It might be dark. God may have already began judgements. Why wouldn’t He? He is a just God and this nation, thanks in part to what the leader of this nation has allowed, has said it a clear voice they want to do whatever they FEEL like doing and no one better oppose us or we will destroy you. It seems there is an evil spirit that has been given freedom. Maybe God has said, let them have what they want and now given those thinking evil things over to depraved minds.
For now, we need to continue to fight the good fight! Don’t stop until the good Lord comes and makes a new government. We know who is just and who we serve. God bless all my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus!
You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. “A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.” I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion, whoever that may be, will have to pay the penalty. Brothers and sisters, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished.
The Galatian church has fallen away from obeying the truth of the gospel. They have been deceived and the place of circumcision (part of Old Testament law), has been twisted into something it was never meant to be. The danger is, if they believe this lie, another subtle lie is sure to follow; and the more lies we believe the more difficult is to stop falling farther and farther away from the truth of the gospel. Jesus alone has saved us. It is the blood of Christ alone that makes us right before God. Holy Spirit, lead us and produce a working, fruitful and unwavering faith in all of us!
