Testimonies:

If you have a testimony of what Jesus has done in your life and would like to share it, please go to our contact page and leave an email sharing from your heart what the Lord has done for you.  We look forward to hearing what the Lord has done and is doing in your life.

Fear not!  The Lord speaks these words, either directly to someone, or through someone to another person in the Bible 63 times.  In only three places do we find Jesus telling the disciples the phrase, “have faith.”  It’s not that Jesus doesn’t focus on faith in the word of God, in fact he tells us in Hebrews 11:6 that “without faith it is impossible to please God.”  But, Jesus speaks more on “not fearing” than faith because he knew that the hearts of people have a tendency to see or hear something and then respond out of fear. The opposite of faith is fear and when we operate in fear, we cannot be in faith.

 

Awhile ago, I sent out a CD about what the Lord has shown me about future.  In that CD, I cover the first 4 things that he revealed to me, and in the second one, I cover the other 8 things that are coming.  In all of them, they are conditional of how the church responds, but more of how we perceive.  Jesus told his disciples, do you not understand, neither do you perceive.

 

When Jesus told his disciples all the terrible things that could await them and all that are in the world, both in Matthew 24 and John 16, he finalizes it with making sure that they have a right perceptiveness of what is coming.  He also, however, made sure they understood that Jesus had overcome the world. 

 

When many Christians hear of the bad things coming on the earth, they immediately begin to get all worried and caught up in the cares of this world.  Jesus said if that happens, according to Mark 4, then the Word is choked out of their life and it becomes unfruitful.

 

Yes, the world is going to get worse, which is prophesied by the Lord in scripture.  However, we are not to fear.  In fact, when all the things that are happening in the last days begin to happen, our command is to do the following:

Psalm 5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice.

Psalm 33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Paul declares in Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice.

Then, all the saints in heaven are saying in Revelation 19:6&7 Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

 

Those who stay ready will come through as victors so, I want to encourage you to get your life in intimacy with the Lord and prepare for all that is to come so that you can be found standing in faith and not fear. 

 

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh.
