Bishop sheds Biblical light on the Ferguson Missouri
crisis & Eric Garner's death

Asking for Wisdom:
James 1:5 says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you
should ask God, who gives generously to all
without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
What a relief! God will not only give us wisdom in
our moments of need; He will give it generously.

Many ask for wisdom and direction with the
assumption that God is a reluctant giver, but He,
more than anyone, wants us to walk in righteousness.
The problem is that many who ask for God’s wisdom
are not willing to obey it. Often we ask God for the
answer to our problem or situation, only to ignore Him
 when He actually responds. But we cannot pick and
choose when to obey God and when to go our own way.
Having a divided heartor double-mindednessis something for which Scripture offers a solution: “Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded” (James 4:8).

A man can go his whole life living by worldly wisdom,
only to become a sudden prayer warrior when he gets
cornered. However, God’s wisdom is not like a bolt of
lightning it’s the kind of wisdom that grows in your spirit
on a daily basis as you feed yourself on the Word of God, drawing near to Him. The wisdom of God is not just something we take from God and leave. It is cultivated through a living relationship with Christ.

Receiving wisdom is simple: You ask for it, God gives
it to you, and then you practice it. You ask for it. He gives it to you. You practice it. And before you know it, you are living by God’s wisdom, not the world’s wisdom. Instead of waiting to seek God’s wisdom when the next crisis comes, commit to seeking His wisdom every day.


Crossing the Finish Line:
Demas is mentioned three times in the New
Testament. In Colossians and Philemon,
Paul refers to him as a fellow worker in the
Gospel. However, in 2 Timothy, we witness
a heartbreaking turn of events in Demas' race
of faith when Paul says, "Demas, because he
loved this world, has deserted me" (2 Timothy 4:10).

Demas began right, but he ended wrong. As Paul’s fellow worker
 in the Gospel, we can probably assume that he began his race
with great spiritual fervor, diligence, and determination. However,
near the end of Paul’s life, Demas decided to pursue worldly
success rather than serve the living Christ. He chose the world’s passing pleasures over the glory of God, the seen for the unseen.
Paul was anxious to exhort Timothy to avoid falling into the same trap.

Throughout his life, Paul saw many abandon the call
of Christ for lesser things. At many times, he stood alone
 in his devotion to God’s work. Yet throughout
imprisonments, beatings, and outright desertionthings
we may never experience for our faith in Christ Paul was
able to say, "But the Lord stood at my side and gave me
strength, so that through me the message might be fully
proclaimed" (2 Timothy 4:17). Although Paul stood
alone, God provided for him in his moments of deepest
need. Paulan imperfect person like uswas able to finish
well because he relied on God’s moment-by-moment
 faithfulness.

The Apostle Paul’s final encouragement to Timothy can be summarized in this: Be strong, Timothy. Don’t ever give up.
Even if you stand alone, keep fighting for the Truth. Don’t
stop running the race. Keep fixing your eyes on Christ.
Knowing his time was drawing near, Paul was confidently
able to say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished
the race, I have kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:7).

As we trust in Christ and run the race until the end, let our response
 be the same. "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race,
 I have kept the faith" (2 Timothy 4:7).

I Thirst:
With his last breath, Thomas Hobbes, the self-confessed atheist said, “I am taking a fearful leap into the dark!” On his deathbed, the French agnostic Voltaire sadly spoke these words: “I am abandoned by God and man. I shall go to hell.”

In contrast to these two men, who died without Christ, is Christian evangelist Dwight L. Moody, whose last words were: “This is glorious ... Earth recedes; heaven is opening, and God is calling me.”

For believers, the moment we take our last breath is the first moment we will draw in the heavenly air of our new home; our abode with the Lord Jesus Christ. To be out of earth’s atmosphere is to be in His holy presence.

We rarely think about the difference between life lived here on earth and the one we will have in heaven. Instead, we often focus on our temporary home; how we can make it larger, decorate it with our favorite things, and enjoy it.

At some point, our perspective has to switch from earthly thinking to heavenly thinking. The short time we spend on this earth is not even a fraction of the time we will spend in eternity. Jesus was accustomed to setting this vision for others to reach. He never missed an opportunity to prepare His followers for His death, but more importantly, He wanted them to understand His resurrection and future blessings that would be theirs.

Even His last words, “I am thirsty” (John 19:28), remind us that nothing this world has to offer can satisfy our needs. Only Jesus has the ability to provide the “living water” that satisfies our souls.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that I don’t have to thirst anymore. I can simply come to You and find satisfaction. Amen.

“Jesus answered, ‘Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst’” (John 4:13-14).

This is truly Fire Baptized Holiness preaching & Teaching at Church during Wednesday evening Bible study class. Bishop continues his mid-week series in Hebrews Chapter 3 ministering on the Provocation of God by Israel because they would not trust God's promises in spite of all the wonderful miracles He performed that they may be free from the bondage of Egypt.

http://churchpurchasedwithhisblood.org| Christian - Wednesday midweek Bible Study. Bishop is teaching/Preaching on the unbelief of the Children Of Israel and its similarities to the Christian Church of today. Hebrew 3:7 talks about the provocation of God by Israel in the wilderness and how they did not believe God after all the great Miracles He performed for them, through His power and love in the wilderness. However, the modern church is spiritual Israel and much to our dismay there is still the perverting spirit of unbelief pervading the church when it comes to believing the totality of God's benefits paid for by our Lord Jesus Christ. Our church is located 1021 Fiall Street Charleston SC. 29407 and we welcome all to subscribe to this channel.

http://messageofthecrosschurch.org In this section of Bishop's preaching he teaches on the Salvation process, which is also known as being Save, Born Again, or the New Birth. He comes from Mathew 16:13-17v. using for his a true Biblical example Peter's confession of Faith in Christ, to show us as candidly as possible how we are truly! Born again and receive the New Birth, which can "only" come about by the revealing or Revelation of Jesus Christ's Deity, by the Holy Spirit, which is called "The Holy Spirit of Regeneration." He gives us a desire for change and to do the things that are pleasing to God the father.
