Mass at the Garden

WOW. The Mass at Madison Square Garden was solemnly blessed. Pope Francis has brought the Gospel of Jesus Christ to life for all to see. The Holy Father personifies what it means to have the love of Christ. Christians, when we exemplify Jesus Christ in all and whatever we do, The Lord will do the rest. Scripture say when Jesus is lifted up he will draw all men unto himself. The Pope Francis has not only spoken soothing words into the hearts of the multitude, he has shared his heart of joy and soothed the multitude. As a Christian, non-Catholic, I am blessed by this visit. I pray you, too, are blessed. May we continue to pray for Pope Francis as he represents Jesus Christ in this our diverse world. 

Blessings and peace,

Weekend Rx

Too many people are leaving your destiny totally in the hands of so-called great mighty men/women of God—powerful televangelists, stadium filling ministers, new age spiritual gurus, miracle working preachers, signs and wonders pastors, you name it—proffering teachings that are contrary to Scripture. Many of such “mighty” people substitute God’s Truth with their personal beliefs and opinions. I learned in 10th grade Literature class the statement, “Pride is a wonderful terrible thing.” The mighty Word of God is frequently being replaced with analysis from mighty low human perspectives. The reason why life does not work without Jesus Christ is because the Manufacturer knows the product best. Do not allow another human being to exclusively chart your life’s course. Give that privilege to Jesus.
We live in a world which seems to be filled with expertise. Almost everyone is an expert on something, and anyone can suddenly be an expert on everything. Thoughts and deeds are often so fickle. Prevailing culture is, “do what idols and role models say to do” and “think what pundits tell you to think” and “if you hear it all day all night it must be truth.” Standards shrink and unrealistic expectations surge. Most everything goes to the highest bidder. Take heed the voices you pay attention to. In the matter of soul preservation every person answers for oneself. Just like you were born into the world alone, you will draw your last “alone” breath alone. The body will immediately begin a decaying process as your soul separates from it. The soul will travel alone to meet your Creator. At that point none of these earthly handlers will mean anything, nor can they do anything for you. You, alone, stand to be received or be rejected. Your reward or punishment is yours alone. Your soul is solely you.

“But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” 
(Revelations 21:8 Holy Bible, NIV).

The Lord God has told mankind exactly who the inhabitants of Hell will be. Take heed that you are not misled by preachers and teachers of false doctrines. Believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, that you may escape hell fire and preserve your soul for eternity. The Blood was shed on The Cross for you. The Bible is the divine, infallible, authoritative, and inerrant word of Almighty God. Spend much time reading Scriptures. Pray to the Lord and ask Jesus to open your spiritual eyes. Pray and ask Jesus to remove carnality and unclutter your mind. Pray that the Lord will expand you spiritually. Allow the Holy Spirit to minister and teach you the meanings of God’s messages. It is serious matter that you know the guidepost Jesus Christ has outlined. Your soul is priceless. Your life is meaningful to the Lord. You only get one chance at redemption. That is Jesus Christ.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”  (John 1:1-5 Holy Bible, KJV)

May you experience Christ in new of droplets of love today. Happy Weekend!

Decision Decision ... More Decisions

Every day we are faced with many decisions. What should one do? How to go about accomplishing the many things we need to do. Fashion your thoughts. Contemplate your words. Think about your actions. Ponder your reactions. Evaluate your decisions. How to be at peace with the choices you make. Decision. Decision. Decision. And more decisions. Every single day life happens. Life comes at you. We each have to arise, move forward, and meet life as it comes. One must stand up. One must live a meaningful, functional existence. It is good to decide early where you stand in these matters, of life. Decide what you will stand for. Determine who will stand with you. At the Do It For Christ Ministries, we have a pledge. We pledge allegiance to Jesus. We preach total surrender to the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Sons and Daughters of the Living God, raise your hands and repeat the Christian pledge: 
"As of today, I vow to make Jesus Christ first, middle, and last. Jesus will be the first person I talk to in all my situations. Christ will be the middle-man in all my negotiations. Jesus Christ will be the last point in all my conclusions. This is my vow. My solemn vow. So help me God."

I encourage you to commit to saying the Pledge daily. Commit to putting into practice the statements therein. The Do It For Christ Christian Pledge is lodged on the ministry’s website, and on all ministry's outlets, as well as in our various print media publications. 
Many blessings to you. My Friend, live your life for Jesus. Do it for Christ.

Deeply Rooted

What is your religious belief? Who is your Religious Leader? Is the founder of your spiritual conviction—the head of your Faith—living today? Can you find peace and joy after spending time in the presence of your religious leader? Does the god you worship have ears that hear your prayer? Is your God alive in the present?! Is the god you bow down to bigger than you? I pray you do not worship a god whose components can be found in physical matter like wood, stone, rivers, streams, trees, cloth, animals, dead humans, or other temporal matter. Is your God alive?
Jesus Christ is alive today. Jesus Christ the living human being crucified. Dead man hanging on the cross. Dead man buried in a grave. The resurrection from the grave. Jesus Christ arose from the dead. The empty tomb. Risen God walking around, gloriously. Jesus Christ in a glorified body appearing to his disciples and hundreds of others. (Look up the Word, in 1st Corinthians 15).
Read Scripture! My Friend, the Bible has power to transform your thoughts, words, and deeds. Do not be misled by popularity, historical data, popular false-truths, sheer numbers and volumes, free thinking, archeological findings, material persuasion, coercion, traditions, or any other reasons. Your eternal existence is at stake. If you should die today without having accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, your soul is lost forever. There is no conversion after death.
In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth. Before there was a beginning there was God. In the beginning God Almighty of the beginning took one week (7 days) to speak into being all that is earth and heaven—Creation. In the beginning GOD made man on the 6th day of creation. I am talking power beyond human comprehension. Mankind will never grasp nor understand the consuming powerful mighty composition of God the Beginning. The concept of the beginning God is too grandiose for human knowledge. That God [of the beginning] says the only way to him is through Jesus Christ, his only begotten son. God Begotten, that you and I may kind of glimpse the kind of power, of God the beginning.
I believe in the Truth of Christ. Hear me here for a minute: I hold no scholarly credentials in theology. I am not ordained by any denomination save Almighty God. I have never attended seminary. Called miraculously and anointed by the Lord Jesus Christ on August 1, 1999, face to face in the presence of Divinity I stood. Hallelujah. The Divine held me up, placed his hand on my forehead covering my eyes and administered holy anointing and a command. On that day I was enrolled under Christ’s tutelage, in the libraries of eternity, where God resides. The Holy Spirit teaches me theology, for ministry. Theology that is one message and for one purpose only: The Resurrected Christ alone has the power to forgive sin and grant us eternal life. My Friend, it has been sixteen years since that day, and I yet, still, proclaim daily the same message—Believe and follow Jesus Christ for the Salvation of your soul.
JESUS CHRIST the only way to God. JESUS CHRIST the only one who has power to forgive sin. JESUS CHRIST the way to eternal life. JESUS CHRIST the first and the last. JESUS CHRIST the beginning and the end. JESUS CHRIST without him everlasting life ends for you.  
When, by death, you leave this earthly existence without Christ you have condemned yourself to hell. Hell, separated forever from The Lord. Without Christ you have dammed your soul to spend eternity with Satan; do you really want that for your eternity? Without Christ you have destined yourself to everlasting destruction—Eternal Separation—from your creator, God the beginning. If you worship and serve a dead God you are playing with fire. Hell fire where the flames never go out. Why take the chance? A place of eternal, perpetual, torment. Is the gamble really worth the consequences? Does it make sense that any forever dead object or concept or person would grant you forever life! Why would such dead object or concept or person remain dead if they had the power to grant your life forever!
Again, I ask you, “Is your god—the God you worship and serve—is that your god alive?” If “No” or “Not sure” is your answer, kindly allow me to request of you that you consider knowing Jesus Christ. Start by saying a short prayer, asking Jesus to come into your heart and forgive your sins. Get a Bible and start reading, preferably, beginning with the Gospel of John. Christianity is not a religion; rather it is a relationship with Jesus Christ. Your being a Christian is your surrendering to Christ. Christianity is placing faith and trust in Jesus Christ to preserve you for eternity.

Who is your Religious Leader? Confidently and boldly, “Jesus Christ!”

Is the founder of your spiritual belief—the head of your Faith—living today? Yes! “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.” (Mark 16:19).

Can you find peace and joy after spending time in the presence of your spiritual head/supreme being? Yes! “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” (Psalm 16:11).

Does the god you worship have ears that hear your prayer? Yes! “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” (Jeremiah 33:3).

Is your God alive in the present!? Yes! “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM…” (Exodus 3:14).

Is the god you bow down to bigger than you? Yes! “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” (Hebrews 4:13).

Jesus was more than just a great teacher. Jesus proved that He is God’s only begotten, cherished Son, who came back to life from the grave. The truth of Jesus Resurrection separates him from every other religious leader in human history. The fact that Jesus Christ is alive confirms and establishes his power to grant you eternal and everlasting life. Christ is Risen! Jesus is Alive! Life gives life. I pray that you do not leave earth until you can answer that your God whom you worship is alive. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

Happy Friday Ooooo My People!

IT IS FRIDAY… I pray you are planning a relaxing, enjoyable weekend. Slow down your pace for a minute. It’s Friday!!! No, it is not a license to be outrageous. For all you and I know Jesus Christ could show up in the clouds late afternoon. Today. Possibly right around the time you leave work with those big plans, and saying, “Let the good times begin!” Stay pure. I mean “pure” in thoughts, words, and deeds. Remember the sacrifice on The Cross? Let it help you make a sacrifice to restrain and refrain…Yourself. Tune it down. Pray every step of the way. Enjoy the beautiful moments, big and small, which life brings. Savor the flavors on your plate. It is not always easy. But God! All is beautiful in the Lord’s hands. May Almighty God be with you in all that you do. I love you and you are in my prayers. Go enjoy Happy Friday Happy Friday Happy Friday......
