In the bible it speaks of God giving gifts to men. These gifts are people five fold ministers Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Evangelists, and Teachers. Ephesians 4:11-12. Today I’m going to mention just two. I was in a really cool meeting where we were sharing entreprenural ideas. I really didn’t know why I was there but I felt that I was supposed to be. After this meeting I left blown away. There is a desire that God has put in my heart. Tonight after sharing my desire I began to see why God gave us such amazing gifts and the need for them. The Apostle and Prophet their DNA screams out, “Heaven on earth!” I knew that already but tonight I was able to see it in a different way. As the prophet dreams with God and see Gods desires the apostle comes in and grounds the prophetic word. Almost as if this prophetic word grew out legs that were now able to touch down on Earth. The word was floating in heaven and the prophet was able to retrieve it but without the apostle the word would never touch earth. Without the the apostle this God dream would remain a dream. The apostle is able to bridge the gap between heaven and Earth by instilling the practical side of things. Grounding these God dreams and bringing heaven to earth. I want to be a part of that. This post was spur the moment but I hope to be writing more in the near future. Let me know your thoughts. Thank you and God bless.

Wait a second? Hold up I thought God was doing something new, healing the sick changing lives etc… So miracles are real and have been real all along. I feel so deceived. So why isn’t this a common thing in the Christian community. They say stuff like that is radical but to be honest that’s just normal Christian stuff. Its all over the New Testament. To be honest I don’t think we truly believe the Bible. I mean to believe that we can go to heaven because a man was brutally killed sounds ridiculous right yet we believe it but we don’t believe that God can use us to show his love for the world through miracles, signs, and wonders… Come on church rise up and get out of your comfort zone.

I was on my lunch break, and I went to see my friends get baptized(I was not going to get baptized) but I felt drawn to those waters. I could feel fire on my fingers every time I stretched my hand and prayed for the baptizee’s. I didn’t go prepared but fortunately my friend had extra clothes so I got in. The second I got in I felt a heat rush into my body and it was quite soothing being that the water was cold lol. Finally it was my turn. FYI this was the first time I ever spoke to pastor we had emailed but never spoke face to face, and he told me three things that I was struggling with at the time, one of which was depression and he said these die today. I came out of those waters a new person. Something happened when I came out of the water. I was happy and filled with Joy. As a friend put it, in salvation you die to the flesh and in baptism you bury the flesh. If your not saved, get saved and and if your not baptized get baptized you WILL see the difference, you are no longer bound to sin, the Bible isn’t just rules but instead life. That guy you see in the picture is not who you see today and I thank Jesus for all that he has done since. As for the depression it hasn’t been around since.
Jeremiah 39:18 and Philippians 3:12
So im 21, live on my own, have a car, have a job(thank you Jesus), and Im Christian. WHY WOULD ANY ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND stay away from partying, drinking, sex, ETC ETC. Im here to tell You Jesus is alive and ive lived on the other side and THEIR IS MORE. True life comes from Jesus. Im not here to condemn or point fingers bc i was their and that never got me closer to Jesus. Im here to challenge U not to be satisfied, bc their is more. You have a bible and you can read, their are plenty of churches in S. fl where you can encounter God. the resources are their will you use them…
So we cant worship to dubstep???
So Gods gift in a person created a genre of music called (Insert-Your-Fav-Type-Of-Music). Gets perverted by the worlds standards and now is know as evil music just bc they decided to add sex, drugs, and alcohol to what God originally intended to be music to exalt his name… Jesus i thank you for the uprise in talented Christians who are going to create music that glorifies your name in more than just one genre, that wont succumb to this immoral music industry. Cant wait for music that will edify, uplift, and challenge my life.
I had a woman on the phone today who was concerned about a test result from her doctor, it had been over a week that she could not get a hold of her doctors office and asked that by any means possible I reach her office. I had attempted this office before and had full belief in what she was saying but of course I proceeded to attempt the line. I asked the Lord to clear up the lines and immediately I hear from the other line, “don’t give up, you never give up in life” so I patched the call and opted out. I was reminded of Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God. Some of us are like this woman we’ve been “calling” and it feels like our prayers are not getting through. We’ve let worry creep in and have lost hope. In Daniel 10:12 we see as he is visited by an angel on the 21st day of his fasting/mourning and the first thing the angel says is, “for from the first day… your words were heard”. I am here to tell you that from day one God has heard your prayers. Don’t give up but, let your requests be made known to God, like Daniel and the woman they did not stop at day one and both received the response they were seeking. Quitting is not an option. What are a few things you have stopped praying about that are still relevant in your life? And why did you stop? My pastor contended for years before he saw consistent healings but he never gave up. Don’t lose heart in your prayers and know what your contending for (ask God) because you may just be one prayer away from your break through.
