She’s been in town for awhile and is hunting for a church. I said I’d help so this is ONE of my strategies. Do you have one in mind? 😁

I used to think speaking in tongues would be the next level of my spiritual walk with Christ. Wondering why are they able to do that and I haven’t yet. Well I discovered it doesn’t really matter if you don’t speak in tongues, because only God would have an understanding. It’s a personal thing you would have with the Lord. No one would be able to recollect the rhythms and sounds only Him.

As said in 1 Corinthians 14 prophesying to others is more powerful because others will understand what you’re saying.

This definitely put me at ease, there was no question once reading this: ” I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be edified.{1 Cor 14:5}

"For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort. Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves, but the one who prophesies edifies the church. I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be edified. Now, brothers and sisters, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what good will I be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or word of instruction? Even in the case of lifeless things that make sounds, such as the pipe or harp, how will anyone know what tune is being played unless there is a distinction in the notes? Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle? So it is with you. Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air. Undoubtedly there are all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning. If then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone is saying, I am a foreigner to the speaker, and the speaker is a foreigner to me{1Cor 14:2-11}

Don’t like if you’re yelling AMEN to yourself as you read this pic. 

I came across this image on my fb feed being shared and liked by many people and I had to correct the statement.  

My friend Nikisha even posted about cultural Christians the other day on IG. Which refers to the brothers and sisters of Christ who claim the title, but don’t walk in the word of the Gospel with faith and submission to the Lord. Which lead me to doing some research with Hod’s word to show that there is a such thing as judging righteously & accordingly. Too many people & even some Christians say “don’t judge me or only God can judge me.”

"Many Christians misinterpret what the Bible says about judging and say that we should never judge. In Matthew 7:1-5, Jesus did say not to judge. However, a close look at these verses will show that He is referring to unloving and unjust judging. It is wrong to make judgments about a person’s motives or thoughts because we don’t know their mind. However, in John 7:24, Jesus said, "Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment." In this verse Jesus is talking about making righteous judgments in regard to God’s laws. We must make judgments in matters of biblical doctrine and righteous living. The Bible is our foundation and if we don’t discern and follow what God says then it will become just another book. Then everyone will be doing whatever they think is right, just like the Israelis did in the time of the Judges. Judges 21:25 says, "In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as he saw fit"….sounds familiar?


With that being said as brothers and sisters we are MEANT to judge righteously. “To keep God’s commands, we must first judge what is right and what is wrong. For example, 1 Cor. 5:11-13 says, “… But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.” 

"Another example of warning our brothers and sisters is in James 5:19-20. These verses say, "My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins." It’s not possible to follow these instructions, and save this brother or sister from death, without first judging their actions. As hard as it may be to do, it is an act of love to confront a sinning brother or sister and it is uncaring not to try to help them. In Ezekiel 33:1-9, God warns the Watchman that if he fails to sound a warning, then he will be held accountable. All Christians are Watchmen so let us lovingly encourage brothers and sisters who have gone off the path of righteousness. Also, if we don’t keep God’s standards of holiness, sin will soon work it’s way through the people and the church will become just another unholy social club."

"Even though people will tell us that we should not judge, the Bible makes it clear that we should. The following examples show where the Apostles exposed error:
a) Paul named and spoke against certain men in 2 Tim. 2:16-17(gossip), 2 Tim. 4:14-15(oppose the word) and 1 Tim. 1:19-20(rejecting faith & Holy Spirit).
b) John named a man who was in error in 3 John 1:9-10(a persons unrighteous behavior).
c) Paul publicly corrected Peter, a fellow Apostle, in Galatians 2:11-14. 
d) Leaders caught in false teaching or immorality are to be rebuked publicly as 1 Tim. 5:20 says.
e) Christians who won’t repent must be removed from the church -  Matt. 18:15-17.
These examples make it clear that we must judge and publicly expose error and, if necessary, discipline those who are in sin. The salvation of souls and purity of the church depends on this.”

"There is a lot of peer pressure telling us not to judge and not to speak against false teachings even when it is known that souls are being misled. People will say, "We must not judge" or "Let’s keep the peace and unity". However, if we don’t show people their error then they may end up in hell. Jesus told us clearly in Matt. 24:10-11 that during the end times “many will turn away from the faith… and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people”. Worldwide, the Ecumenical Movement is seducing millions of Christians into an ungodly unity of false hope which knows nothing about salvation through repentance and the Lordship of Jesus. We must not allow ourselves to be drawn into this lie as there is only one hope of salvation and that is through faith in Jesus Christ alone. All other promises of salvation are untrue. We should not have unity with error." ~Mick Alexander

Only He knows all things but yet we try to convince ourselves we can control what’s ahead

What ever is God’s will is beyond GREATNESS of the plans you have for yourself 


He knows the timeline He created so don’t stress or worry if you don’t see things popping off like you hoped

"Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. "So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭31-34‬ NASB)


He’s viewing the full picture we’re only scoping the edge 


“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭20‬ NIV)
