Boldness to Stand & Speak

"Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill? But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?" John 7:25-26
I believe one of the characteristics of Christ is His boldness granted by His Spirit to speak. 
The apostle Paul after describing the importance of the Armor of God says, "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak." Ephesians 6:19-29
This too should be our plea! We are living in a time where evil is called good and good is called evil. Majority disagree with the Word of God being complete as a whole. 
We, in Him, must do all to stand in these last days; despite rejection, mockery , persecution and man's opinion. 
We must stand for Truth! John 17:17 says, "Sanctify them through thy truth:…

One body, useful & purposeful

"And king David said, Call me Zadok the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada. And they came before the king." 1 Kings 1:32 
Think about this... King David was a man after God's own heart, deep love, respect, reverence and honor before Him; as well as constant communion. He was after the heart of Jehovah! 
Yet even being so, he was still surrounded by those who were like minded. Here, he called for the priest and the prophet. 
Lately I've wondered "why"? Why did he still need these people being so close to the Living God? 
The answer: "For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another." Romans 12:4-6
You may seem "alone" in your walk or calling, yet The Lord will bring those whom you will need to fulfill His Will and complete His tasks. 
Neglect not so great companionship nor the words given by these to sha…

Despite the sifting, will you stand?

A message of HOPE!In times of trouble, you're not alone. 
"And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren." Luke 22:31-32 
The enemy is doing all he can to steal our joy, rob our hope and misplace our focus! 
So many are enduring situations they've never thought they'd find themselves in... Sorrow, sadness, deep pain, heartache, grief, etc. in great magnitudes! God knows our trials, temptations & sufferings...
"For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." Hebrews 4:15 JESUS RELATES because He HAS been there too!!!
Cry out to Him, even if there are NO words. "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself…

It was His Love

Man has created a fluffy pillow cloud Jesus. One who is love according to man's standards & expectations. Completely refusing to acknowledge His righteous balance. 
It was His Love for His Father that invoked anger in the temple! Turning tables, exposing corruption and rebuking those who indulged in defaming His Father's house. 
It was His Love for truth & holy righteousness that exposed the man made ways of religion. He called the "religious" Scribes and Pharisees names! Hypocrites! Vipers! He spoke truth, yet this "name calling", is rebuked today! "To each his own" people say. WRONG! 
Rebuke this false system that adds chains to chains and increases bondage to bondage! Jesus came to set the captive FREE!!! 
It was His Love that lead Him before Pilot, resulting in beatings, whippings, mockery, a crown of thorns and carrying a tree; up a mountain called Golgotha where He cried out "My God, My God why have you forsaken Me."? 
It was Hi…
