In Ecclesiastes 3:1 it
let us to know that the Holy Spirit will pull God’s Season into Our purpose, and Our Time-John15:5; John 6:63; Rom. 4:17; John 18:37; Gal. 6:9;Rom. 8:14; 11 Cor. 5:17.
Examine Yourself Whether Ye Be In The Faith:11 Cor.
13:5. In 1 Sam. 15:22; Heb. 11:6-You must obey and have faith when you realize God is your source which is Primary, Totality,
Really ;versus God being a resource which is a Secondary, Convenience, Tradition.
God has the last say in all
matters: Eccl. 9:11; Gal. 6:7-9; 1 Cor. 4:5. In short don’t let nothing keep you from the love of God(Rom. 8:35-39;Psa.
75:6 Phil. 4:11,12;Dan. 4:17).
Overcoming Temptation, Succeeding in Life and Not becoming Victims of Jealousy are hindrances to your faith--Gal. 5:7
1. Things will turn around for us in our spiritual lives, natural
everyday circumstances, and the political outlook view:(Matt. 6:33;John3:12;Dan 4:17). Remember, man can tell the truth, but
God is above the truth and time(He is Perfection and has the last word).
1. Inspired by Jer. 37:17 The Word Of The Lord To Today's Christians:
worship these spiritual celebrities(Preachers, Teachers, Conference Speakers and Praise and Worship Leaders) They only are
servants of God serving as patterns some of us may reach(Luke 16:8-10;Psa. 75;6,7). However, don't worship and mimic them(Psa.
118:8;11 Chr. 32:8);Luke 10:17-20;Eccl. 9:11;Rom 11:29 ;1 Cor.13:1-5;Matt.7:21-23).
1. Your recognition and Protection may not always come out of the
Promise Land; it may come out of a faraway land like Egypt(Esther 4:14;Gen. 37:36;Matt. 2:15).
1. THE SPIRITUAL CHEMICAL MATHEMATICAL FORMULA of M20=(M)(M)(0)
will close the gap on Temptation in your life. Temptation is God's Proving Ground(Mal.3:10;James 1:13) of the Tree of Good
and evil. The 1st M-Means-1 Thess 5:22. The 2nd M-Motive-Col. 3:1. The O-Opportunity-1 Cor. 15:33. This faith legal formula
hypothesis is a hedge(No gaps)will rebuke the devourer and accuser of the brethren(Isa. 59:19; Isa. 54:17-Pillar of Fire).
- THERE IS A LEADER IN YOU(Ezek. 22:20;Heb.5:12). The areas of David's Five Smooth Stones of Leadership are:
A Book-Hag.2:1-3(Truth), A Dreamer-Gen. 37:1-8(Love), An Achiever-11 Tim. 1:7(Holiness); An Inventor-Rom. 4:17(Obedience),
and a motivator- 1 Sam. 30:6(Humility). These Five Smooth Stones will enable(Phil. 4:13)to stand up to the Principalities(Kings
of)A King Saul, A Pharoah, A Uzziah, A Nebuchadnezar.
1. WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO BRING DOWN THE HIGH PLACES ?-Ex.14:12-14;11
Kings 21:3.There are five things(1 Sam.17:40)that will bring down High Places(GIANTS):1.Obedience-1 Sam. 15;22;Micah 6:8,
2. Purpose-John 18:37;Dan. 1:8;
1 Pet. 3:15, 3. Sacrifice-Gen. 22:2,8,12;Rom.12:1, 4. Balance-1 Cor. 9:25;1 Cor. 10:23;Eccl.
9:11, 5. Accountibility-Psa.15:1-5;Eccl. 12:13,14, Rom. 14:1-2. This is the Word of the Lord. Mal. 3:9,10;Matt. 4:1-11; 1
John 4:;1 JOHN 5:4 are our back up ,telling the devil to back off in Jesus Name !
1. THE THREE DIMENSIONS OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE-Matt. 4:1-11. The number
11 has to do with disorder, chaos and change. Jesus Christ, the Second Adam(1 Cor.15:45) showed how to be vigilant and victorious
over the devil. In the wilderness(Matt. 4:1-4), Satan tries to use the Flesh Dimension(Heb. 5:14-Five Senses) Against Jesus.
In Matt.4:5-7, Satan attempts to use the Mental(Intellectual)-John 3:12,Word of God against Jesus. In Matt.4:8-11, Satan attempts
to uses the Spirit Dimension(spiritual warfare) against Jesus; yet he overcomes(1 John 4:4;1 John 5:4). Jesus Christ is our
Example, Pattern, Role Model, and Parable(1 Pet. 2:21).
1. THERE IS A WORD FROM THE LORD-Jer. 37:17;Haggai 1:5,9,11-God
is speaking to his church and to the world(1 Pet.4:17). In Haggai 1:9,11, this points to 911(Cause-Effect) that happened in
New York. These verses , especially the 11th verse that points to our weaken economy, oil crisis, and our natural resources.
The solution to man's crisis is in 11 Chron. 7:14, is that my people would humble themselves, repent, seek him and turn fro
their perverseness, God will heal the land, our woes and our crisis(Jonah 3:6-10).
1. TO HAVE FAITH AS A GRAIN OF A MUSTARD SEED-Matt. 17:20- In our
day Jesus would say if you have faith the size of a particle of an Atom. You cannot see an atom, but it is the strongest unit
and measure of power(Heb.1:3). Faith of Mary(Luke 10:41,42),Cornelius(Acts 10:1-8)demonstrates protons(positive charges).
Martha(Luke 10:41,42)demonstrates neutrons (no power(Matt.22:29). Negative Faith (Electrons) is demonstrated by Cain(Gen.
4:1-8)and Simon Magnus(Acts Acts 8:13-20).
- WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE THE FAVOR OF GOD ?-1 Kings 3:5-7,9,11-14 ;Gen.39:2,3. The world system believes in
a Determined Destiny called Fate , which is superstitious luck which involves fortunetelling and astrology(Jer. 8:2; 10:2-3).
We who are believers rely upon Faith which is the Discovery of Vision that brings overflow and favor of God((Prov. 18:16;Rev.
3:7,8;Eccl. 9:11). by having the favor of God through intercession of the spirit(Rom. 8:26),; God is able to put increase
into our lives(Luke 17:5; 1 Cor. 3:7).
- MEDITATIONS AND REFLECTIONS ON THE WORDS IN A SONG WHY THERE IS SO MUCH PAIN ? Jeremiah 15:18;Psalms 30:5-
The Late Mother Theresa said "suffering is a gift from God". The U.S. Marine recruiting sign says, "Pain is weakness leaving
the body". The word of God tells us that this light affliction at the present is going to be a more exceeding glory in the
future(11 Cor. 4:17). The greater the pain, the more the gain. As a caterpillar goes into metamorphosis into a butterfly and
sand irritates the oyster to make pearls; we become more into the image of Jesus Christ and a better person.
1. MIXING FAITH AND THE WORD:Heb.4;2;Hosea 4:6;Psa. 119:11,105;Heb.11:1,6,Rom.4:17;John
6:63;John 3:12--Through faith in the word of God one is able to spiritually mature, have emotional management, make better
decisions(secular and spiritual) and communicate better. Thus making us his workmanship and treasure in earthen vessels(Eph.
2:10;11 Co. 4:17).
1. THE DYNAMICS AND STRUCTURE OF FAITH-1 Kings 19:11,12-As Einstein
defined energy in 3 areas: Kinetic(Moving), Potential and Rest energies; faith in God is Moving Energy(Measure of Faith To
Treasure of Faith(Rom. 12:3;Matt.21:21) .God is Potential Energy (substance to Abundance-Heb. 11:;Matt. 25:14-30-Rom. 4:17).
God is Rest(Energy) Faith(Comes from a special relationship with God) which is Heb. 4:9;Matt. 6:6;Exodus 33:21;Psa. 91:1-6;
11 Cor. 4:7-9).
1. A MIRALE CAN TURN YOUR CSI AROUND(Gen. 50:20). God can turn your
life which consist of Circumstances, Situation and Issues around when faith, possibility, probability, energy, and encouragement
are spoken into your life(Prov. 18:21; John 6:63;Rom. 4:17;Eph. 3:20; 1 Sam. 30:6). This trigger of synergy will cause a shift
in a season, a promotion, and an increase for you, which is a miracle.
1. In God's Secret Closet(Matt. 6:6; Psa. 91:1); God is ever present(Psa.
46:1) for information(Phil. 4:11) and for emergencies(Eccl.9:11). Amen
1. CHANGING YOUR THINKING-John 3:5,7;;Rom. 12:3;11 Cor. 5:17;Phil.
4:8-God will work for you and through you when you understand these four teachable points in life:1. Forgiveness(Psa. 66:18;Rom.
12:19-21); 2. Faith(Heb. 11:1,6;James 1:8) 3.Prayer(Matt. 21:19-22;Luke 18:1) 4. Love(1 Cor. 13:1-5;1 John 4:18;John 10:10).
These individual are levels of energy, but when all combined together they for a synergy which brings about a miracle, a season,
a breakthrough, an intercession all at the same time.
CAN HAVE A FIVE SMOOTH STONE MIRACLE TODAY(ECCL.3:1) ! A miracle is when the Bible becomes alive in your situation(Heb. 4:2).
OPEN DOOR(Rev. 3:7,8;Prov. 18:16))-Humility; FAVOR(Gen.39:2,3;Job 2:3); FAITHFUL IN SOWING -REAPING(Gal.6:7,8); POSITIONAL
PROMOTION(Psa. 75:6,7)-Obedience; KEEPING THE COVENANT(John 15:1-5;John 18:37;Matt.17:19-21)-Truth.
1. David chose out Five Smooth Stones(1 Sam. 17:40). The Five smooth
stones are five things the devil cannot do: Love, Humility, Truth, Holiness, Obedience. Notice that Love, truth and humility
are 17 letters, holiness , obedience are 17 letters. This brings us to Psalms 34th Chapter. The power of the number 17 means
to "Activate your faith" is 17 letters.
- Activate your faith is 17 letters. This is the secret of 17. Season is your actual,
Time is your sequential and Purpose is your Potential when it comes to faith Eccl.3:1 Season, time Purpose is 17 letters.
Our Words, Our thoughts and Our Attitudes will "activate your faith"(11 Cor. 9:7;Gen. 4:5-8).
- What is Spiritual Discipline ? Its is practicing what you believe, study, teach
and preach(Micah 6:8;James 1:22). The Five Smooth Stones of Discipline are as follows: Sacrifice(Rom 12:1),Obedience(Heb.11:6),
Purpose(Dan. 1:8), Accountability(Rom. 14:12), and Balance(l Cor. 9:25). Discipline makes you better(llCor. 3:2, Jude 22).
- Don't Defer Your Hope. "Hope deferred maketh the heart sick; but when the desire
cometh, it is a tree of life"(Prov. 13:12). This is the foundation to " A Raisin in the Sun ?" What is my purpose in life
? Am I in the right place at the right time ? Am I using my gifts and talents ? Am I doing the right things foe the right
reasons ? Remember, Prov. 29:18 and Eccl. 3:1 about one's life purpose and vision.
- The word hope in the KJV is used 121 times. This is a true exegesis of Psalms
121, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help".
Keep in mind Psa.119:114 , that faith is a
source, hope is help, and Love is an abundance. Remember, Faith is energy(Heb. 1:3), Hope is Value(Phil. 4:8), and Love is
treasury(ll Cor. 4:7-9).
