On May 22, 2015, a woman Minister of God referred to men as containers bought by a woman whose contents are not known at the time of purchase. On arrival at home, the opening of the containers reveal the true contents. She said some women found beverages in their containers. Some women found sand in theirs; while many women found granite. Discoveries of women after marriage differ with respect to the true contents of their men.

This is true.

Are you surprised? I don't

...and that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.  Be prepared. You're up against far more than

It’s easy to believe that success or popularity equals “manhood”. But do not be deceived! The God who created you and knows you intimately, looks beneath the surface into the recesses of the heart, and what really matters is what he sees in there. Lose that perspective and begin to live your life with the ideals of the world, guided by your own selfish desires, and fall short of what God has planned for your life. On the other hand, live life with an undying deep desire to

   Too many times we sit and let people spoon feed us ideas about everything, and without ever checking it or finding out for ourselves whether it is true or even good for us we just eat it up.  When it comes to our Christian Walk, we need to be active participants in it, meaning we should be spending time with God through prayer, reading His word and fellowship/worship.  Neglecting to do so makes for one weak Christian, suspect to being misled and misdirected by all of the many voices out t

 Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town.  There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich.  He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd.   So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way.
   When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your ho

The Heart Of Worship Part 1 By Prince Malachi

What is worship to you? Does your definition of worship match Yahweh’s? Is worship about your relationship with Yah or is it a show or program. Is it time for you to display your skills and talents? Do you go through a set routine or do…

What is your concept of worshiping God? Is it attending a church service where you sing hymns, read scripture, recite prayers, and pass the offering tray? While these things m

God said, "I've taken a good, long look at the affliction of my people in Egypt. I've heard their cries for deliverance from their slave masters; I know all about their pain. And now I have come down to help them, pry them loose from the grip of Egypt, get them out of that country and bring them to a good land with wide-open spaces, a land lush with milk and honey, the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite.

   Amalek came and fought Israel at Rephidim. Moses ordered Joshua: "Select some men for us and go out and fight Amalek. Tomorrow I will take my stand on top of the hill holding God's staff."
  Joshua did what Moses ordered in order to fight Amalek. And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went to the top of the hill. It turned out that whenever Moses raised his hands, Israel was winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, Amalek was winning. But Moses' hands got tired. So they got a stone and set it under

  Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they never stop saying: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come."  Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever,  the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the t

It is hard to explain what I lost when my father died. It is even more difficult to explain how much of him remains with me, even five years after his death.

As with many women, my father’s influence remains an enduring force in my life. For some of my friends, it’s a scar that threatens relationships and self-worth.

But I am one of the lucky ones.

For me, my father’s love continues to give me courage and confidence even without his physical presence. I have somehow l

34 Things A Righteous Woman Does

by Tonja Taylor  

Although I am sure there are more, here are 34 things the LORD showed me that a Righteous Woman (a righteous bride, a daughter of Yahweh, the King of kings) does:

  1. Refreshes others by sharing the goodness of God with them in the way she lives, what she says, and what she does and doesn’t do, according to His Word 

  2. Reveals the Truth to others--first by living it, then by speaking it or other means, as the LORD leads

  3. Rejects falsehood

  4. Returns to the LORD and helps others to

What is worship to you? Does your definition of worship match Yahweh’s? Is worship about your relationship with Yah or is it a show or program. Is it time for you to display your skills and talents? Do you go through a set routine or do you allow the Holy Spirit to have his way? What is worship to you? In this passage, Jesus changes man's concept and approach to worship.

God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon's scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God's Word. We can't get away from it—no matter what.
-Hebrews 4:12
The Word of God packs more heat than any automatic weapon ever could.  As a Christian, The Word of God aka The Bible is your First Last and Greatest Line of Defense!  Through the reading of God's Word you learn

So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God's chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticki

The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.
-A.W. Tozer


As the quote above suggests, it is through reading understanding and obeying The Word of God that we grow and develop as followers of Christ.  This is not something we should occasionally do, it should be the foundation and fabric of our lives.

Daily Devotional: Fly Away!

pexels-photo-3959918.jpeg?auto=compress&cs=tinysrgb&dpr=2&h=750&w=1260&profile=RESIZE_710x
Listen to my prayer, O God, do not ignore my plea;
hear me and answer me.My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught
 at the voice of the enemy at the stares of the wicked;
 for they bring down suffering upon me and revile me in their anger.
My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death assail me.
Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me.
I said, "Oh, that I had the wings of a dove!
       I would fly away and be at rest-
-Psalm 55:1-6

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,   Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
                     -Ephesians 5:15-16


There are a lot of things going on these days, most of them designed to distract us and to put it bluntly, if allowed many of these things will allow us to entertain ourselves to death!  It's time we wake up and smell the "spiritual coffee" that's brewing.  God has given us much...and to whom much is given, much is required.  Don't be mind

YOU HAVE EVERYTHING INSIDE OF YOU TO WIN! Are you sick of hearing those words without a map for HOW, a navigation system for WHERE, or a smart phone app for WHEN? Consider Skylar Kierra Diggins, third pick for the 2013 WNBA draft. While she may not appear how you expect her to, she was chosen. Not only was she chosen; there's more behind her beauty, brilliance, and boldness than you would know. She is literally "changing the game", as a star basketball player.
