    Thank You from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being thankful. Jesus lived on Earth as our example, and He was so thankful and full of praise. No matter what you have been through, there are still some things that you can be thankful about. An imp...

    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

Being Sold-Out For God

  • The devil will always defend the selfish agenda of the carnal fleshly ungodly nature of man. The devil will twist scripture to justify the wants of the flesh. The devil invented many denominations and contrary doctrines because Satan knows a house divided against itself will not stand. Satan trembles when a man of God preaches and teaches the truth about the cross we are called to bear because in the cross is the great secret revealed by which the Lord rescues sinful man from himself to bring him into the life and the order of the life of His Spirit.

    Oil and water cannot mix together, neither can light and darkness. It is through the power of the cross by which God destroys all deception and satanic boundaries that want to divide the body of Christ because through the death of self the Holy Spirit brings us together in the power and the agreement of His love. When the heart of sinful men is circumcised by the Spirit of God and taken out of the way then in holiness we behold the Lord.

    This generation shall witness the unity, the love and the power of those who truly follow Jesus on the road to the cross. Satan hates and despises the power and the work of the cross because, through it, he loses his hold and his ground as man surrenders himself to be clothed with the Spirit of God. Through the cross, we yield and we yield until we realize that God has taken a hold of us and we resist Satan's temptations by the power of God. The cross strips us of self and all human weakness and enthrones Christ in the heart. It's but for a season then in victory, we stand. Let go of the world or let go of the Lord but you cannot have both or you shall find yourself living in the place of defeat.

    I say to this generation that during the time of the tribulation many backslidden lukewarm Christians will find that they have been deceived and lulled to sleep by the god of the flesh who is always at work in the sons of disobedience. Many religious church going people shall be confronted with the true gospel and many will have to make a choice between following their religious leaders, their churches or Jesus Christ. Belonging to a religious organization does not make you a child of God.

    The question is; DO YOU KNOW THE GOD OF YOUR SALVATION THROUGH A RADICAL PERSONAL INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP? Do you know the purpose of becoming a born again Spirit filled child of the King? Do you understand what the Father's will is for your life? Do you recognize the voice of God or is your life so flooded with worldly rubbish that your idols drowns out His voice? Are you pursuing holiness through sanctification by allowing the Lord to work the required change into you or are you complacent and living in your fleshly comfort zone?

    God will shake everything that needs to be shaken and only those who allow Him to shake all that is not of Him out of their hearts is going to make through and endure until the end. We cannot claim to be children of God if we refuse to surrender completely. Halfheartedness is a very dangerous attitude in the times that we are living in. Repentance is to let go of the world and the things that ensnare and defile us and to grab unto God in COMPLETE SURRENDER. There can be no half measures. The darkness is rapidly on the increase throughout the world and people need to make up their minds on which side they stand - GOD or the DEVIL.

    Revelation 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

    15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would that you were cold or hot.

    16 So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.

    17 Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

    18 I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white clothing, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness does not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

    19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

    20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will eat with him, and he with me.

    He shall seperate the goats from His true sheep. The Lord knows His own, those whose hearts are perfect toward God.

    The question God gave me for this generation is this: When you stand before His Presence in the judgment will it be a friend, a stranger or an enemy.

    Pure devotion toward the Lord is really simple because it only takes a decision to say yes to His dealings with you. How do you feel when your lover is half-hearted or insincere in their devotion towards you? Make the choice and cry out to the Spirit of the Lord to come and conquer your heart because a heart that is void of the love of God becomes a bottomless abyss. A heart that is conquered by the love of God becomes the garden of the Lord filled with the delight and the atmosphere of heavenly bliss.

    Malachi 3:17 And they shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him. 18 Then shall you return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serves God and him that serves him not.
