Come out from among them.

It appears that the church as a whole has blended with the world, we have forgotten who we are and who we are representing. God never told us to look like the world actually He tells us in:      2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. It appears that we have done opposite of what God commanded us to do.

Instead of looking like the body we look like a division of the world that is trying to live by better principles and standards, but falling short. We have allowed the world to dictate to us how we "Christians" are supposed to act and live, (and have church for that matter) we have conformed into a worldly "Church" it could appear that most church's are having church without God. 

Church where have all the Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego's gone? a people no matter what that would not mold or conform into something they were not, a people who would not allow the worlds suggestion to change or alter who they were, three hebrew boys sold out completely for God even to the point of death. Where is that church? 

The modern day church was birthed in "Pentecostal Fire" (Read Acts 1&2) The disciples were not concerned with offending someone, they were not concerned with how they were perceived, pride was not an issue, governments could not scare or shake them, popularity was never an issue. They were willing and obedient to carry out the plans that God had given them, they were lead by the Spirit, they were willing to die for what they believed.

The Bible very clearly tells us in 2 Corinthians 5&6 That we are "New Creations" that we are no longer to be worldly but heavenly, it tells us that we are to represent heaven (God), like He tells us to not how we think, He has Given us the tools, the power, and the authority to be who He has called us to be. It is time to wake up repent and be transformed to our new creative state, it is time for the church to take a bold stand, it is time to be true Christians.

Will you be that voice?

Will you be that voice? the voice crying out on behalf of this nation,the voice for this generation. John the baptist was that voice (Matthew 3) and He ushered in the first coming of Jesus, He was that voice in the wilderness preparing the way of the Lord (Jesus).

Will you be that voice preparing the second and final coming of the Lord, the voice declaring his truth to the nations,the voice in your schools,the voice in your marketplace, the voice to your generation, the voice makes a difference,will you go, will you say, will you do what God tells you to do.

Will you abandon yourself , and submit your entire being unto God. Will you be the voice the world wants, or will you be the voice the world needs?It may not appear to be a popular voice but it is the voice that the world needs!!!!!!

Will you be that voice that changes history?????

Will We answer the call?

Arise Church Arise.

     We must examine our life and the nation we have become, it appears that we are going through the motions of church and living godly lifestyles, however if we would take a second and parallel our lives and the existence of the christian church to the word of God we would clearly see we are missing it falling short...... 

      I hate to say it but the church has evolved into a 21st century church where programs,plays,buildings,people, and even equipment have taken the place of the church God intended us to be. Most churches never have an authentic move of the spirit, most churches never cast out devils, or lay hands on the sick and get results. Most church's will kick you out if you dare speak in your God given prayer language (other tongues).   

    How did we ever get so far away from the truth?   Before Jesus left He empowered us with the word, promised us the spirit, and commanded us to do these things: Matthew 28:18-20/Mark 16:15-20 It could not be any clearer mans doctrine has removed the Holy Spirit and His ministry from the church and then they call it the church of today, well I don't want any part of it. 

     The church has been deceived and the devil has hoodwinked the church into looking productive and godly however most churches are operating completley off of mans ideas and plans (God is not in it). When God is in it you will see the things of his word working and in operation, the Holy Spirit and his 9 gifts were given to the church of this age not taken from it (go read your bible). In Mark 16:20 the bible tells us that as the disciples preached the word signs followed, now when people are preaching the word the only thing that is happening in most churches is sleep. 
       It is time to arise and take our place, the christian giant has been asleep to long in America and the christian body need's revival we need to repent and seek the Lord with are whole heart we need to embrace the entire word of God (even the Holy Spirit)....

Words....Are yours producing life?

  Words are either life giving or death taking, it takes the same amount of energy and or time to confess right or wrong words (Proverbs 18:21) "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." same mouth same tongue two different confessions two different outcomes one good and glorifying to God the other devilish and life taking Our words give birth to our future. The bible tells us in (Mark 11:23,24) that we will have what we say, if you look at the life you are living right now (and be true to yourself) your life is a mirror image of your past confession. God's way into this world comes by our words (the confession of our lips) when we say what God's word say's about our lives God watches over His word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12) He also tells us that His word will not return unto Him void, but it shall accomplish that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11). In  (Hebrews 11:3) Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God. so things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. God uses words to alter this realm, this world was made out of heaven or God's realm so it takes God's written word spoken out of our mouth to accomplish God's will concerning our life.  I strongly suggest that you begin to find out what God's will is concerning your life, then I would give birth to that knowledge by confessing God's words out loud, creation and this world acts upon the spoken word not thoughts. Begin to say things like: God's word says I am free so I declare according to God's word "I am free" or I can be what God's word say's I can be I can have what God's word say's I can have, speak this way and you will begin to plant a new Life with your words....

When people encounter God.....

When people encounter God lives change, 

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, He is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
 This I would say is a new birth encounter a new beginning, when the ordinary touches the extra ordinary change takes place... In Acts chapter 2 We see a group of believers encounter God through the "Holy Spirit."  this encounter changed the coarse of history the church was birthed in this encounter the church was empowered in this encounter "The day of Pentecost" the day when the Spirit was poured out upon all flesh....  At the end of that same chapter we see that 3000 were converted (they had a God encounter)
 In Acts 3:1-9 We see where a lame man encountered God and his life was changed forever....
Acts 8:5-8 once again people encountered God and their lives were altered...

This world needs to encounter God and God has commanded us "to go into the world and preach the gospel." Mark 16:15-18.....

Mark 16:18 "Lay hands on the sick and they shall recover."

Our Job is to be obedient to the word of God to stand in faith believing that God is able to back His words up.  When I stand in faith and obedience to God's word He is obligated to carry out or perform His word,  

Jeremiah 1:12 I hasten (watch over) my word to perform it.  

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth fourth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it...

We must know God's will concerning healing, we must know that God has come to give life not take it (John 10:10) in 1 Peter 2:24 the bible is very clear that Jesus "took stripes on His back so that ye were healed." healing belongs to the body of Christ today..... It is only in "Ignorance" of God's word concerning that subject are we made powerless or defeated.
Lives are being Miraculously healed at New Way the word of God is alive and well and working wonderfully..   Pastor Rich Summerlin.   (take it, healing belongs to you)

Yes I can....

I am off on a mission, I have a busy week ahead of me alot of planning for easter morning service with Dr. Norvel Hayes and working on a huge video and web program. I do however want to encourage you today that "with God all things are possible" you can accomplish the task set before you!!!!!!! dont give up or grow weary God has given us the tools and power to overcome this world, in Ephesians 1:19-23 & 2:4-6 the bible tells that we are on top of the food chain that we can do it that we can have it, go,go,go press on go for all that God has made available unto us be who God has called you to be assume your position in Him....I will leave you with this scripture 1 John 4:4 greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.

Declaration: I can do what God says I can do, I can be what God says I can be and I can obtain what God has made available unto me today is my day and all things are possible unto me I am a believer and God's word say's all things are possible unto them that believe.

The Presence of God....

Oh the sweet presence of God, mmmmmmm is there any other place?????? Not that I would rather be.... There is fullness in the presence of God,Freedom and liberty....The bible says that "God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship him in Spirit and in truth." John 4:24. Worship the Lord worship Him in Spirit and in truth seek Him in your worship love him with your worship be loved by Him in your worship....The bible also tells us that If we "hunger and thirst we shall be filled"Matthew 5:6....Worship has away of unlocking doors and or tearing down walls and strongholds as we begin to worship God and enter into his presence God shows up and walls,circumstances and situation begin to flee, Lets look at Paul and Silas I believe this is a great example of entering into the presence of God and God showing up. In Acts 16:25,26 the bible says at the midnight hour Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises and God showed up and they were delivered from their adversary (free) the devil has been defeated.....Oh church worship God worship Him in Spirit and in truth......

Declaring War on Lust

In the name of Jesus, I declare right now that I am free from lust and addiction to pornography. Lord, Your Word says that whom the Son sets free is free indeed. I am led by Your Spirit; therefore, I do not fulfill the evil desires of the flesh. I will never again be entangled in lustful thoughts or actions.

Your anointing-Your burden-removing, yoke-destroying power-has released me from this sin for good. I declare that no weapon formed against me will prosper or keep me from fulfilling my divine destiny. You began a good work in me and are faithful to complete it. As the redeemed of the Lord and as the righteousness of God, whatever I say in faith is so. Lord, be it unto me according to Your Word. Amen!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I repent now and turn my back on that devil of lust!!! I ask you to forgive me and help me walk in your power and might, I declare now that I am free from lust..... He who the Son sets free is free indeed in Jesus mighty name I pray. (Amen)
