God knew the plans long before we began on our journeys. He knew the obstacles one must take, but see God has the solution for every problem. Even before it occurred in our life. God loves you, and He has you in His palm...

Jeremiah 1:5
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Water baptism is not up for negotiations. The Holy Ghost is not a warm fuzzy feeling.

Jn 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

- Water 🌊 baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, fulfilled in Acts 2:38, 8:12-16, 10:44-48, 19:5, 22:16, Rom 6:3, Gal 3:27

Jn 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

- Baptism of the Holy Ghost, fulfilled in Acts 2:4, 8:17,18, 10:44-46, 19:6, Gal 4:6

I'm Elder Gregory Quick and I approve this message!

Blessings, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33, NIV). As unbelieving believers, we call on the Name of Jesus but run and abandon the faith during times of trouble. We are quick to praise God in good times and act with ungratefulness when we face difficulty. As we continue to trust our ALMIGHTY LORD, He will grant us that unshakable, deep peace that only He can provide. Take heart, God will never abandon you! He has already conquered our difficulties. Whatever situation you are going through, it is a process that you must walk with God, in the same way Jesus did, obeying our Father and giving Him the Glory. Have a blessed day receiving discernment from the things that God reveals in His Word and remember that in Jesus Christ you too can overcome ALL. GOD BLESS!

God's Justice

“God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.” (2 Thessalonians 1:6-7 NIV)

We want justice. We want fairness. We want to see those who hurt others punished. We want people to get what they deserve; the ‘wrongdoers’ to be chastised, and the ‘rightdoers’ to be rewarded. Most of all, we want it NOW! When you have spiritual integrity you are able to accept that justice does not belong to you, it belongs to God. God is merciful and patient. If he were not, you would already be punished for your own sins. He gives everyone multiple opportunities for repentance. God is just. He will judge everyone in His time. What frustrates so many is that His time is not our time. In our immediate gratification society, we want that justice instantly. We want to see justice happen. Occasionally we do see it; most times we don’t. King David repeatedly lamented in the Psalms: God, how long will you let the wicked prosper; when are you going to do something about it? People today struggle with the same lamentation. ‘God, when are you going to do something? When are you going to punish that person who is constantly harassing me?’ God is a searcher of hearts, yours and others. He knows everything that has, is, and is going to happen. He is patient and full of grace. He will bring forth His justice in His time. You may not see it on this earth. You may not see it until you move to heaven. If you are on this earth when Jesus returns, pray that you are on the right side of His justice.

"You may others from sadness to gladness beguile,

If you carry your cross with a smile."

Faith is what keeps you going, faith is what causes your actions, and faith is also what causes your inner thoughts. But what is exactly is faith? I think sometimes we make it out to be a complex idea, or perhaps something a bit cloudy, nebulous, unexplainable. But in reality, faith is quite simple.

If the narrow way (Biblically narrow) cramps your “style” you would not be comfortable in heaven. Heaven is filled with souls who CHOOSE the narrow way. (Come, friend, die to yourself, and take the way Jesus wants for you.)
