Will You Say Yes?

Yesterday I got to witness first hand how real the spiritual battle for a territory, for a soul and for a life. As a young man whom I got the opportunity to lead into a prayer of salvation immediately after was pursued by an armed robber and shot right before my eyes…….will you say “yes” to what God is calling you to, where He is calling you and yes despite the opposition, your fears and uncomfortably?

Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

I had got a vision a month prior where I was sharing the gospel accross the street with a crowd of young man but I thought that was going to be far off in the near future….I should know by now when Jesus shows me something He desires for me to be obdeint and act on that lol  So two weeks ago I found myself with no car, virus on my computer and still no job having absoultely nothing to do wondering what is going on Lord. Then Jesus spoke to me about my desire for missions and that he needed me to be obedient that accross the street was my mission feild and I do have a job working for Him and beiing about his business. Sharing the Gospel and his love to everyone in that area.. The neighborhood I live in is fairly nice however, I live next to a convenint store an noticed alot of males would linger there and at the carwash.  I noticed from time to time I would get approached if I wanted to buy weed and knew the presence of God was needed there.

However on Wednesday I was feeling discouraged because since evangelizing no one had given their lives to Jesus, but many received prayer. Furthermore, there had been of a lot of unusual opposition. One of owners of the car wash told me to leave his property and stop talking to everyone, another mother cussed her children out for praying with me saying they knew Jesus already, another couple in a car was fist fighting whiles driving passed, like I said unusual but I realize now it was high level warfare. So toward the end of the day I stand at the front of the convenient store asking anyone for prayer. When a young man came up to me and asked if I had a rubber band for a wand of money he had I told him I had something better, Jesus. He looked completely broken with a lot on his mind. He began to state his whole life story of how he had ran after money, drug dealing and had it all and was completely empty. That he was tired,  and he was on the run from a lifestyle he wanted to leave behind. He said he never had a father and his mother always chased after man so never knew love, He is now at a point where he is not afraid to die and he knew that was a bad place.  He proceeded stat he didn’t know How God could love him or forgive him if his own parents left him and he couldn’t forgive himself . I shared Gods love, the Gospel and he broke down in tears giving his life to the Lord right then and there.  He said he felt so relieved and had never cried before like that and wanted to stay in contact, that today he would throw the drugs and his guns away. We exchange info as I told him about connecting him with other believers . So I left headed for my apt but I turned around one last time to wave and say goodbye when a young man came up to him seeing a slight scuffle as the man asked for money… then heard a gunshot. I was dumbfounded the young man who just gave his life to the Lord got shot. the shooter ran off but my new found friend was shot in the leg as I ran to help him.

Soon The ambulance came and so did the cops….They caught the shooter and the young man was rushed to the hospital. Two things could’ve have happen after witnessing this. I could’ve coward in fear thinking its to dangerous to evangelize or too traumatized to continue to reach out to others across the street but Gods grace it way to sufficient for me! lol I knew the enemy was so mad and I may not being seeing the results but God indeed is doing something over there.  I believe that prayer protected that young man from death and what the enemy intended. So at that very moment I knew why God had said that was my mission field, why it was necessary for me to be there, to preserve and not cower in fear and why most importantly why this young man had to give his life to the Lord…the enemy was waiting, but God had and always is ahead of him…. I travailed in tears and in prayer last night for not only this area but for the young man of our generation who the enemy is sifting like wheat left and right. Praying asking the Lord to send more labors to get more “Christians” “ministers” “pastors” out of the church buildings and pulpits into the neighborhood and go OUT into the community to grab our brothers snatch them from the destruction they are headed too. I could’ve done two things after witnessing this cower in fear and ….Jesus answered my prayer.. last night as I went out again today meeting a pastor and a son who were in the process negotiating for space to begin a church!! So I ask you, if you are a christian…will you say YES thats all the Lord is looking for someone who will say YES and Go to your next door neighbor,  across the street, to your job, at the grocery store? As a believer you are a missionary a pilgrim here on this earth passing through called to make Jesus known wherever you go. WILL YOU SAY YES?!

Matthew 11:12
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

No God isn’t fixing it but he still Saves!

I saw a trending article from NY Daily news this morning about the shooting in San Bernardino that states “God isn’t fixing this” which prompted me to write this blog via the Holy Spirit. jesus_saves Everyone can agree regardless of your belief or faith that a shift is happening, unprecedented like never before and that our nation, our world, is in rapid decline. Some attribute all this to the climate change, history just repeating itself, or false spiritualism. However, if I can let you in on some “good news”, that this was all written and foretold of this time in a book that so many have come to dismiss and discount, The Bible. You see the Lord prophesied about future events in the Last days about it being perilous times.

2 Timothy 3 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

that you would hear “wars & rumors of wars, but SEE YOUR NOT ALARMED, SUCH THINGS MUST HAPPEN, but the end is till to come” Matthew 24:6. You see videos popping up like never before of people glorifying fights, pushing even death, having a mother, brother, sister, man & woman turn on each other on camera for 15 seconds of fame as the bible also prophesied “They will be divided father against son, son against father…mother against daughter, daughter against mother”…Luke 12:53. Now we have America turning away from the Christian faith and accepting the doctrine that all is welcome, God is in all religions. We have more atheist and agnostics than ever before and the Christian faith is fast becoming the minority which, the Lord also prophesied in 1 Timoty 4:1The Spirit clearly says that in LATER TIMES some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons……Oh but there is that wonderful “Good news”!! When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28. These things are taking place so look up my fellow brothers and sisters the time is very, very, near! The time has come for AMERICA TO WAKE UP…no longer does wealth, riches, our health and even good life=Christianity or the God we serve. Christianity is about Loving our enemies (those who persecute us), Faith in God’s word when our circumstance and everything around us says otherwise, Giving your time, resources, your heart to others in service, sacrificing your WHOLE life, worldly pleasures all that you are and have for God purpose, Holiness turning from sin, no longer making excuses why you sin, seeking righteousness and being about Gods business. Which is SOULS, the lost they are so precious to him don’t stop praying for them. So many people don’t know him but know religion. He is calling us to rise up and be that light in this increasing dark world. He calls us not to love our lives because this isn’t all we have to live for ” whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it” Matthew 16:25. So when senseless acts of tragedy like this happen I ask myself did the deceased have a relationship with the Lord, were they saved? The time is here when we will be soon be faced with death, of our loved ones, our children even ourselves but the Lord tells us how to overcome “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives and were unafraid to die.” Revelation 12:11 Are you okay with death, are you afraid of dying? If so then the question begs do you really know where you are going? Our lives, Our soon lifestyle and even freedom in America will soon be shaken, crumbling to the ground will you cower in fear, turn away from your faith because this is not the God that you know, will you take up arms and began to take matters into your own hands, will you begin to listen to other doctrines, teaching on “religion” and find one that works for you. Most importantly will you give up and stop praying to the one that is the Beginning and the End, the ONE who knows it all, prophesied of it all, the ONLY ONE able to save and is soon returning Jesus Christ! Our lives our not our own, Christianity is not a religion it is a relationship. Jesus Christ is real & alive, he yearns to have a relationship with all that he created and if you don’t already know him I am talking to you.

Don’t allow fear to leave you confused, hopeless and paralyzed because of what is going on. The Lord spoke of all these things happening & taking place. Unfortunately, that means that these shooting and attacks will increase they won’t stop and the world won’t began to get better as many are hoping as the Lord tells us “The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever”. 1 John 2:17. For our hope doesn’t come from this world but in God, his word and the eternal life that is promised in Son! The only way you can have that eternal life is through Jesus Christ and Christ alone there is no other way to God. The bible is Good news from cover to cover, it tells of our beloved father who knew we would make a mess of this world and gave as an amazing way out of eternal death by sending his only son Jesus to die for our sins. With his shed blood redeemed us back to the father so anyone who believes in him and follows him will be saved from this dying world in to eternal life with him! What a wonderful Grace, so in response to that article no, God is not fixing it because we live in a fallen world that has removed him out of our government and rapidly out of our nation. When we remove God we remove his protection. Furthermore, most importantly he foretold all of this happening because the earth is in fact passing and he is soon returning to restore and redeem this earth as it should’ve have been, However God still saves, he is not concerned with the earth than he is concerned with your soul, and those around having eternal life being in a relationship and fellowship forever. Will you accept his grace today and if you have will you share this wonderful good news & hope with others in a dying world! So lets continue to praying for our nation, Gods will, those affected in the tragic shooting & the souls of this nation. God bless!
