Spiritual Coffee: The Great I AM!

Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.
BOLD as a Lion! Christ is a loving and caring God and He is bold as a fierce lion! We do not serve a wimpy and nonchalant God. However, we server the one who calls Himself "THE GREAT I AM"

Let us look at our all-powerful God:
Exodus 3:14
And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

Hallelujah! That should have you shouting this morning , Christ said "I AM", He is the Ultimate, Number one, and Uno! There is no other God but Him.

Christ is even seen in the New Testament, declaring He is the "GREAT I AM". Let us look at this verse, in John 18:4-6 which states," Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, “Whom are you seeking?”
5 They answered Him, “Jesus of Nazareth.”
Jesus said to them, “I am He.” And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stoo…

Growing in Christ: Be Thankful!

It's Friday! Take a look back at your entire week! Know that God has brought you this far! Be Thankful!


Philippians 2:14-16The Message (MSG)14-16 Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing.

Growing in Christ: Truth

Do not sin, Do not commit murder, Marriage is one man, one woman! Do not commit adultery ... Etc!
1 Corinthians 1:18 [ Christ the Power and Wisdom of God ] For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
To a nonbeliever, the message of the cross is foolishness ! The bible is just a silly old book, with many do nots! But to a true believer, a Christian, it is life ...
We just don't take part of the bible, we take all of it. Because Christ, himself is the word of God! And as the bible tells us, "Darkness" nonbelievers, can not comprehend, what is truth! Until, their eyes become open!
John 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did…

Growing in Christ: Are you ready?

Be ready for Christ's Return! 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18(NKJV)
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Growing in Christ: Mastering the "Ask"

My children have mastered the skill of asking for something. Whether it be candy, to go outside and play, or wanting a new pet! They have mastered, the "asking"!
They are not afraid to ask big, or small; and their faith in hearing a yes answer is astonishing! 
The bible tells us that we are to ask our Heavenly Father, for what is laid upon our hearts. 
Though the bible also tells us, that Christ knows what we need, before we ask. God wants us to ask. Christ wants us to build a relationship of communication, through asking in prayers; and to understand He is our source and provider! All things come through Him...
Note this verse...
Mathew 11:24 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Asking God, does not mean that you will always, get all your "wants", because the bible tells us here, in James 4
"Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure …
