What are you thinking?....Eph. 3:20

Good day Mars,

Just a little something, something to challenge you and your thoughts for this coming year...This word blessed my socks off. If you saw this already then watch it again or pass it on to another mother and sistah.
Wow, back in 2007, Prophet John Gray, asked me this very question. He told me to even ask God, "what am I thinking?" Because God can do more than what I am thinking and especially more than I am asking.
However, we've asked God for enough, let's now ask God to do something with our thinking, so He can manifest our thoughts into actual ministry! Time has run out on potential ministries, lying dormant in our thoughts. In other words ask, "God what can I do for the kingdom with the very thoughts you give me?"
Have a blessed, bountiful, joyous and safe New Year Eve!

The Effective and Fervent...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Mars!!!!!

My prayer as we close this year, is that the Lord will bless all the saints of God, His called, elect, ambassadors, as His list goes on. As we seek His face, we will continue or start once again to prepare to do exactly what He has called and mandated us to do without apprehensions. Forgive us Father once again, we acknowledge our sins because they are always before us. We seek you abundance of tender mercies and loving kindness. We will give Jesus a "yes" because if the truth be told, we've been just nodding our heads while still just giving Him a lot of lip service. We bind the spirit of form and fashion while denying the power...Lord, we will stand up for justice: mend broken relationships for ourselves as well as for others. Become peacemakers. Be innovators, to give the poor something of monetary value, whether we sign up for a charity or give more in our benevolent offering or time, but that we give more to others and less to ourselves. Reading our word will be on our top five things to do. We must start and lead our own ministries instead of hiding behind other. We thank you for calling us to be the head. We're all laborers and have work to do and our harvest is ripe, right where we live. Lord speak softly because your not one to yell, if you need us to go elsewhere. Our Lord will and is speaking but we must pray that we're not so busy or too loud to hear His voice, perhaps were in the wilderness, so harden not our hearts. Let's pray that we don't run after every wind and doctrine. Help us Lord not to regress, get stressed, and we bind depression. Also bind the spirit of Homicide and Suicide which seem to become joined at the hip. We plead the blood of Jesus! 
We have to learn through frequent prayer and fasting, to call these spirits by their names. As we test the spirit by the spirit. Discernment. Let's call out, when we pray not just names, but the spirits of infirmity, lust, adultery, greed, busybodies, complainers, murmurers, lack and slack, witchcraft, fornication, rebellion, pride, worldliness, and again homicide and suicide. We know these spirits come in legions. The word says, one (prayer) can chase away a thousand and two can chase away ten thousand. So, as we pray let's go after and cast down legions and not just stray demons by praying for one individual person. We all fall short of God's glory but the ministry of reconciliation is what we are all mandated to uphold. So let us remember to bind these spirits, demand and decree, profess and proclaim them in the atmosphere. Over ourselves, family, friends and even our foes. The backslider and every thought and imagination, in Jesus Name! 
Through the precious blood of Jesus, we can loose those things that God has ordained and empowered us, to bring us successfully to that expected Jesus Name, Amen!

The prayers of the righteous...

Go Jerri, its ya birthday!

Happy Holidays Mars,

     Well I just celebrated another birthday and like the last five years my friends came out and we went to the movies. Then to my home and ate food, had great conversation, ministered to the least of them, played a thought provoking game and laughed until our sides hurt. This is the stuff I live for. Life has too many parts so we must make good decisions and roll with the best of them.
     I decided this year to bake my own cakes, yes plural, cakes; there was a strawberry shortcake, a chocolate ganache, pumpkin pie (from my students) and a lemon crunch that I didn't get a chance to put out. I had to make the lemon glaze, got tired and was missing the fun in the other room, so I stopped playing Betty Crocker.
     We took pictures. Unfortunately, the pics have not yet been emailed to me. Well one was but I couldn't find it saved to this computer. Maybe next time. Ok I going to bed, it has been a long day...

All little ones go to heaven...

Good day Mars,

     I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest heartfelt sorrow and compassion for the lives that were so abruptly taken from us. I work in Americas school system and I also have a 6 year old niece, so I cry sometimes because at any moment this could me or her.
But I am assured that all children before they reach the age of accountability(about 7 or 12) and according to scriptures in the bible, that God doesn't let the "little ones" go astray. Littel ones are taught by Jesus in Matthew 18, meaning actual little children and born again believers. Unfortunately it is the adults in the lives of our little ones who must take on that responsibility of raising them towards right and away from wrong.
     The bible does clearly state in Matthew 18:1-5, "At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. And Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Read all of Matthew 18, it's good!
     Some will argue otherwise but I truly believe not through my emotions  or wishful thinking but through this particular scripture and others that (the children who died brutely on Friday in Connecticut) are in heaven. But here's the catch, some will argue all are sinful from birth while this is true according the word of God. There is original sin (Adam and Eve) and actual sin (us when we start to commit and are held responsible by God). Moreover, for the parents of these children  who desire to see their child again, who are in with the Lord, they must be born again by way of the Blood of Jesus Christ.
     Lastly, Jesus took an actul child and clearly told the disciples that unless they "convert" because they were in the age of accountability, and become like that child who have not yet been accountable, they will Never, enter into heaven. So parents raise your children up in the way of the Lord Jesus, if you claim to be His believer, if not, and desire to be with your very young child who are in heaven, then you must do exactly what He instructed the disciples to do as well.

Be encouraged God is not concerning His promises...

Tied to a Healthy Soul...

Good day dear Mars,
     Sorry I didn't get back in the two days I desired but here we are again. My prayers are that you have read the last blog and found perhaps a conviction because you either fell in the category of Ahab or Jezebel. In any case, were not blameless and the Lord is just seeking after someone that will be honest with themselves, so ...The Lord can be justified when He speaks and be clear when He judges...(Psalms 51:4b)
     As for Boaz, I heard a preacher say, "first get rid of the Bozo!" :) Nevertheless, the topic of Soul ties is still evident. We need to be very clear in our position when standing in the power of the Holy Spirit while in opposition to the enemy. We must acknowledge our vulnerabilities and who we lend and borrow from, regarding issues of the heart. In other words, seek & give Godly counsel. Somebody that will remain objective and tell the truth, so we can start to live a free life; no chains allowed. God has authority over our lives.
     Ahab had many vulnerabilities, he was also double minded. One day he worshiped the true and living God, then the next idol gods. Remember, what the word says about being "double minded". We shouldn't tell others our private business without seeking God first. He says, "Seek me early..." Often times, God is the last we speak too, fooling ourselves that He never knew, picture that! Let's be clear, "private business", is nothing far from and could include issues with our finances, but there certainly not always relationships.
     We should know by now what the word says about any and everything issue involving our lives. Somebody coined the letters: B.i.b.l.e to be the acronyms of Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth, well that is true. Try God at His word and you will find yourself falling victim to Jesus instead of Jezebel. Every victim needs a Savior!
     I'm not perfect, in fact I write directly from my issues in life. You know I am really getting better at studying to be quiet. Look if I said everything that I thought, I'd be in serious trouble with The Father. I used to hang out with the best of them: Jezebel and Ahab. Also known to play the role of both but to God be the glory, I am now fully acknowledging all my sins because they are always before me. I'm not invisible! Thank God for the blood of Jesus.
     How is this done, you might wonder...well, I read a lot more and not just the bible. I do however, read books with spiritual messages. Sometimes when I read the word, I've spent days not just on a scripture but stuck on just a verse? The word can catch me out there and I be like, "Lord what does that mean? and why does it seem to scream at me?" You know I google everything too. I often say, after seeking Godly counsel, "who can I call God?" Because sometimes I want to talk to one of my sistahs or brothahs, alright?
     The word of God lets us know that we are allowed to have healthy Soul ties, just look at David and Jonathan. They were extremely close, so close that Jonathan never held back telling David when he was wrong or what the Lord said. He never used David's weaknesses to stronghold him either. He acknowledged his strengths and weaknesses. Jonathan always had David's best interest, even hid him from his father. That's what healthy Soul ties do, they protect us, help us right the wrongs in our life, cover us in prayer. Can I get real, some will lay down their life for you but that may be too much like ... ah Jesus, because that's what He did...
     Let Jesus be your Soul tie, your confidant, the one you seek first. He will lead you to that Boaz, but you have to first get rid of that Bozo. He will become your blessed Assurance to replace that Ahab in you. Lastly, He will give you a besty like Jonathan and cast that Jezebel right out of your life! Jesus our Lord has many great exchanges for us, like Sackcloth for garments of praise, blesses for curses, strength for weakness, the list goes on...these are the very necessities to tie your soul too. Bible study, Luke 27:10;"do this and you will live!"

Have healthy Soul ties,
Jerri of Mars
