Thank you Pastor JD! Dear God, please have mercy upon us.
In a sea of data….
Amen and again I say amen! Hallelujah!
All will be encouraged by the messages!
1. Owner of the team.
2. Coach of the team.
3. Players of the team.
4. FANS, or all those who are WATCHING.
You get my point, it takes all parts working together. One thing alone doesn’t make a football team nor does it make a game. AND without the fans watching it also seems rather pointless. If no one came to the games to watch and cheer the players on then why would you even be on the team?
Daily we must ask ourselves the following.:
What team are you playing for today?
Good or evil?
Right or wrong?
Selfish or selfless?
Surround yourself with teammates or like minded players, if not then you will not be able to play the game well because you will either be influenced by the opposite team BUT, if you are strong enough you can influence the opposite player to run a touchdown for your side. Then you would be like a mentor. Again, that means you must be walking the walk not just talking the talk.
So, those watching might be fans or brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, or unbelievers that could be touched and moved by watching the unbelievable moves of the givers and servers of good things.
Bottom line is we must NEVER weary of doing good and doing right even though it seems we are going up against a team that seems to have everything. They seem to have more fans on their side cheering them on. Maybe our stands look basically empty. Seems our coach didn’t even show up to help us, but we know that He IS in fact with us. AGAINST ALL ODDS KEEP ON FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT AND KEEP ON RUNNING THE GOOD RACE! Never give up and never give in!
WE DO HAVE THE VICTORY!
1 Peter 4:10-11
As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
As we enter into relationship with Christ and seek first His kingdom, we begin to recognize the gift(s) God has given us. We all must make the courageous choice to offer those gifts for the good of others and for His glory. Lord Jesus, may our hearts stand ever ready to ignite and move us into action as you show us opportunities to serve you. Holy Spirit, please lead us in obedience to Christ always – and press out of us the gifts we are meant to offer to the glory of God.

1. I am not a sinner.
2. I don’t need forgiven.
3. I have done nothing wrong.
4. I do lots of good things.
5. I am a good person.
Are these statements true or false? Do you say these things? Do you know someone who does and who sincerely believes it?
1 John 1:8-10
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
It is through confession that we align with the justice of God and are forgiven through Jesus Christ. Most importantly, that we confess we are sinners. If any one of us is without sin, we do not need Jesus. Only He was without sin and only He is qualified to save. Confessing our sins is part of worship; part of our lives poured out for Christ. As the Holy Spirit reveals ALL the places of your heart, stand ready to confess your sins to God. This is not to make you feel guilty but rather to bring conviction, change, and to purify you for His glory.

If you really don’t know what this is saying I sincerely ask you to call upon Jesus Christ and simply ask Him to show you the truth and to give you understanding. Jesus Christ will show you if you are seeking truth with a sincere heart…
God bless you.
WOW! I must say this is a must listen too! Are you watching around you? So, much of the surveillance talk might not be completely new to you but there might be updated things you don’t know. BUT, I, A CONSERVATIVE WAS BLOWN AWAY AT THE END. So, please watch all the way. Are you in the camp of judge Kavanaugh as I was? Nope, not the lies from the left. After listening to the latest information this pastor shares, well we might should begin praying for Kavanaugh to lose the appointment. Very compelling information.
Thank you Pastor JD

Praise the Lord God Almighty for men like this! God still uses all of us in different ways. We might be a small candle instead of a light bulb that shines a brighter light nonstop and that draws many to its brightness. Ler us not forget that the light in each one of us from a small candle to the brightest bulb is still the Holy Spirit and he shines the light on darkness in ways we don’t even realize. We can’t all be “Zev Porat”, but God is able and does use all who are willing. For me it is simply sharing these types of things, or it is simply lifting someone at work up in prayer or with a hug or simply telling them they have done a great job and thank you! Friday I did that with an email to a woman I have never met but through my job we communicate here and there. Not on a consistent basis or anything. I had asked her for information the day before and she worked quickly to get the answers. I just emailed her after and copied a few key people and told her I appreciated her going above and beyond at quickly resolving this issue. I said you might be asking “fir what, just doing my job”? I would say, you wouldn’t believe how many don’t get right in there and do as you do. You are set apart from the rest and simply wanted you to know how much I appreciate you.
(So, yes, something as simple as that gives encouragement in a dark depressing world. She sent me an email back without the other folks on it and said WOW, thank you for such a wonderful complimentary email. Such kind words and you made my day! I told her I don’t give them out unless I mean what I say. I told her I was glad it made her day and I hoped it put a smile on her face and a spring in her step!) You know in this world we often are all to easy to point out the things people do wrong and criticize people in an email with many people on it but we should take time to be a light that shines brightly on little things in daily life, and maybe let their bosses know about those things. That does brighten the days of people. So, something so small and easy can be used! I feel God uses me more to encourage and uplift people. We are all part of the body of Christ Jesus and we can’t all be the arm or a foot. The body has many parts!
What part are you?
New to prophecy or just want a quick refresher and update? This is perfect for either one!
Please watch the sermon.
