HOW DO YOU GET SAVED

Getting saved is not as default and confused as many may paint it to be. In fact, getting saved is a very good thing which changes your life to somebody with good value and integrity.

Look at it in this way, you are saved from the negativity and all the bad things that this world has. You are saved from going some place I believe you don’t want to go, hell. But the main meaning for saved is living a Christian life style. This life style symbolically represents how Jesus would life on an everyday bases.

According to 1 John 5:11-12, the Bible says: “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. Let me sum this up for you, your eternal destination is all contingent on one thing, whether or not you have the Son of God. Not whether or not you have religion or Christianity, but whether you have Jesus

So how do you get Jesus? God’s pretty clear about that. He says, for example, in John 3:36, “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, (that means that are saved), but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him (This means that they are lost).” God’s wrath is because of what we've done with the life.

And whether you may believe this or not, Acts 2:21 tells us that “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
This is a simple process.
Romans 10:9, if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. THAT’S IT
Was that had, I don’t think so,

TRY IT.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN SUCCESS IS ABOUT TO HAPPENED

To many time we give up at the brink of success. All who triumph to their ultimate goals in life had to face adversity. When you about to mention those famous words, I quiet. This is an indication that success is right around the corner waiting to see what the next move you will take is.

Change: When change begins to occur in your life in a positive way, don’t fight against it, grab a hold of it and don’t let go. When change makes you fell uncomfortable, don’t run from it, run towards it. When change makes you weep because of what you have to let go off, wipe your eyes and look towards where you help comes from. Towards God, because if He allows this change to occur in your life, is because He is getting ready to bless you in a mighty way. That means that success is coming in your direction.

Difficulties: It’s so unfortunate that this is where most of the mistake has been made when it comes to succeeding in life. Do you not know that hard times and difficulties only come to prepare us for success?

Just imagine that you have been pursing you dreams for a long time, you have been focusing and moving forward with no hindrances. All of a curtain when you are about to get your lucky brake, here come all sorts of negativity and turmoil begin to happen, trying to throw you off from you God given success.

Remember this, the closer you get towards your victory in life success, the more intense and more difficult it will get for you, however, this is where you have to be strong and intensify your faith and believe that He who begins a good work is faithful to finish it.

Affliction: When we are afflicted, we have the mentality of always begging and pleading for God to remove our affliction. Of course not all affliction was meant for the purpose of success in your life, however, what the enemy meant for evil, God will use for good. If for any unfortunate reason you are afflicted in any area in your life, use that affliction to drive you into a higher way of thinking.

The enemy’s greatest attack goes towards those that God is getting ready to bless. So how do you know when success is getting ready to happened, when you are right at the point of getting ready to throw in the towel of defeat.

Hold on just a little while longer and let God bless you tremendously. God Bless you.

DEFINING LIFE PRINCIPLES

A PARABLE OF TRUST

Are you rich or poor? Do you want to stay or go? Your mind tossed to and fro, saying, is it another or me. I will open my heart and incline my ear; my mouth shall speak wisdom, the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding. What I lose I could win, and if I win I could lose. In my wealth, and my riches, I will not boast. For God giveth and He taketh.



THE MEANING OF THIS PARABLE OF TRUST

In life there are rich people and poor people. All sometimes have undecided minds, wondering where would their strength come from in the time of need. But if they open their ears and listen to the wisdom of the elders, they would get understanding, that to win, you sometime have to lose, so if you boast about your wealth and riches, remember, God not only gives you, but, He also could take it away

HOW TO LIVE A SPIRITUAL LIFE

Every human contains a triplex in its nature, the Body, the Soul and the Spirit. The body, or the outer part of a human is what been used to demonstrate the actions of what’s going on inside of the body. In other words, the body is the part of the human that cover the real source of what life is all about.

In fact, everything in this world has a body, a vehicle has a body, a building has a body, writing or reading has a body, from music to even liquid has a body. So as we see it, not only humans but objects and things has a body also. But to be spiritual will take more than just the body; because the body has no connection that links towards God.

Then there is the soul, not everything has a soul. The soul is placed above, and is independent of all infirmities of the body. For example, a sick person showing signs of weakness is due to the hindrances that interpose themselves between his soul and his body.

Concerning the soul, after its separation from the body, will continue to progress until it attain the presence of God, in a state and condition which neither the revolution of ages and centuries, nor the changes and chances of this world, can alter. It will endure as long as the Kingdom of God, and His dominion and power endureth. Okay, how about the spirit.

In 1Corinthians 15:44, it said that there is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And in Romans 8: 10, 11 it said, if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

So as we see it, living spirituality is a mater of living for Christ. His ways and actions must be imbedded in you. This will take a life style of continuous living and breading the nature of how Christ operates.

HOW TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS

Decision is primarily making- up your mind about something you conceder doing. Choosing the correct choice is your ultimate goal. Right? Well this is how you will get result.

Never make a decision under pressure. Allow yourself to have clear and define understand of what you about to do or say. Take a moment to relax and mediate, and you will see the bigger picture.

Never make a decision when you are in pain. As to the heat of the moment. For example, spousal disagreements, family feud, friends argument. Etc. When decisions are made out of your frustration and anger, it tend to be the wrong one, and end-up causing more harm that good.

Never make a decision to get revenged. Some may not believe this but good always prevail over evil. And when it does, you want to be in a good position to reap what you so. What you want to is commit to the LORD GOD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. (Proverbs 16:1 NIV)

When making a decision, you want to think ahead, in the future, in other words what going to occur down the road, months and years after you made that decision. Think for tomorrow and not for today.

Think about what you want to be or trying to become. Then make that decision gearing towards your future goal and desire, and not what going on in your life at that present moment.

If you follow this simple steps, I believe you will make a good decision in what ever you pursuing. However, remember that the “Lord made everything for his own purposes.” ( Proverbs 16:4 NIV)

PRAYER MASTER KEY

Whenever a person is praying for a particular thing or engaging in spiritual warfare, these attributes must be taken into consideration. Single minded is a must; it is the master key for prayer. In Matthew 6:24 the scripture said “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon”.(KJV) Your mind must be totality on one thing, which is God. Many times when we pray, we tend to focus on the negative that is happening in your life at that particular time, which will bring a hindrance in your pray. As I have said before, sometimes you need to prayer before you pray. This will give you a single mind to conduce your praying.
If God is to answer you prayer He wants all of you and not to share you with another person or object or things. In James 3:11, the scripture said, “Do a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter water or yield salt water and fresh water”. (KJV)
A person cannot prayer with two Gods in control at the same time. The great God Jehovah is a jealous person, He absolutely will not share his prayers with any another god. Carnality and spirituality are not family members. They war against each other.

What the world desire’s is not what the Holy Spirit desires. A fig tree, my brethrens, will never bear olive berries, or you will never get bananas out from a sugar cane plant. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: you cannot be partakers of the Lord’s Table, and of the table of devils. The devil wants to kill steal and destroy, but God wants none of that, He is a builder, He doesn’t tear down.

You are the Temple of God, and the Spirit of God dwells in you. Your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own. In actuality, God is praying to himself, when you pray to Him, because it is the spirit that prays and not you. This is why in 1 John 4, the writer says,

“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world”.

We have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit, which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Do not mingle and involve God’s spirit in the enemy’s playground. The world is where the enemy goes like a roaring lion seeking for someone to devour.

However, we know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. So the enemy could row and row and row and row all he wants, he cannot touch who is of God, as long as that person stay obedience to God in prayer.

"WHAT DOES LIFE MEAN TO YOU"

If the race of life begins to get so heavy on you that you are thinking about giving up and getting out of control, remember this. The creator, who made you, is the one who controlled that weight that is heavy on your shoulder. His name is Elohim, meaning he knows what you are thinking. There is nothing that could happen without Him knowing about it and how to handle the situation. Try God before you get out of control.

Life is about something exciting; it doesn’t mean that situations and circumstances wouldn’t occur in your life. It doesn’t require being perfect and fault free. It does not require having all the wealth and education that you want.

Life is about being burden free, worry free, stress free, and able to have the time needed to serve God and help others etc. Life is about laying aside every weight, and the thing, which so easily beset you, so you could run the race that is set before you.

The things that occurred in your life that made you uncomfortable are there to detour you from your destination. They are called obstacles, with the intention of getting you out of control. However, if these things occurred in your life, use it to your advantage. Overcoming these things require living life to the fullest. Being able to endure the hardship and complete your task is living life to its accomplishment.

THE ROAD TO SUCCESS

There are three stages in the path to gain success. These stages are growth (growing), develop and mature. (Maturity)

The first of these stages is growth. If you evaluate and investigate all things that were made by God, they have one thing in common, they have to grow. From humans to plants and animals, all starts young (small) and eventually must grow. If for any reason any of these things are not growing, they are looked on as deformed or possible abnormal. As a result special care has to apply in attempt to get them back on track. So how do you grow?

It takes food for growth. Whether spiritual or natural, food is the main ingredient for growth. When it comes to success, the food that ignites your growth process is information and knowledge. Success is not obtainable without good information. So you must put your self in right place at the right time. Go to the right function, and read the right book. Associate your self with knowledgeable and will educated people in reference to what you seeking after.

You want to eat as much information as possible. Eat until you are filled. If you neglect to eat the information you will never grow, and if you don’t grow, you will stay in the same place, as a result you will never see the end of success road.

Then there is develop, which means to change and become larger, stronger, or more impressive, successful, or advanced. To develop, you must expand and enlarge your growth. Don’t settle; seek for more and more information. To develop you must practice. Practice make perfect. You must study and research about you goal and dreams.

Having a mind of excellence and putting it into action will take developing your craft. What would happen if a ten year old girl body stays the same but yet she continued to get older? You would look at her as if something is wrong due to under development.

Or what about a young boy who is playing spots for his school team, years past by and he is not devolved to met the demands of the team. Sooner or later he probable has to leave the team because he is under develop and cannot keep up with the rest of the team members, and to meet the challenge that the other teams might post.

After you obtain the information that you need towards you success, you develop it to its maximum capability. Information is only good when is develop, thus is useless. What is the point getting information and not developing it?

This is one of the most important things you must strive for when seeking success. Maturity, which means the state of being fully grown or developed especially mentally or emotionally.

An immature person would never obtain success, but if they do, it will never last. This is because with maturity comes responsibility and accountability. To gain maturity one must grow and develop. As we see all three are in twined with each other. However, when you are at the stage of maturity, you think and act different. You have a mind to do what it takes to fulfill your set goal.

The secret to all three procedures is change, to grow you must change, to develop you must change, to mature you must change. Change is the ultimate secret to passing all three stages, and the thing you must change is your thinking. Your mind must focus on what you’re trying to accomplish. Romans 12:2 said, “be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”
