Do I now persuade men, or God?

Today my friend I want you to understand something concerning your calling.
Paul said, I am an apostle, not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father. 
Your calling begins with God and ends with God; nothing more nothing less.
Do I now persuade men, or God?
As I preach I do not seek to please men Paul says, for if I please men, I should not be the servant of Christ - he doesn’t like men-pleasers at all. Seek to please Jesus Christ who "gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father" Galatians 1:4
This world in which we live in is an evil world, You were not called for it, but to minister grace, peace and blessing to those who believe is the reason why we preach. Therefore you who believe, "Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen" Galatians 1:3.  Jesus said, "I pray for them: I pray …

Approved in Christ

My friend hear this, Paul says to Timothy, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed..." 2 Timothy 2:15.
We are his workmanship, approved or created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
It’s our responsibility, our duty to make sure that we are walking the talk, that we are obedient to our own master, and that we are pleasing God, well and in all things. So let us hold fast to our profession or fear, lest, a promise being lest us of being approved of God, any of us should seem to come short of it. 
Paul says, "But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates" 2 Corinthians 13:6. I have stood that test and truly belong to the Lord, just as you also do.
Reprobates are unprincipled people, such as scare you with dreams, and visions, and revelations, and callings or simply for the fact that they’re servants of God. But Paul says, "Now I pray to God that ye do…

ABOUND IN THIS GRACE ALSO!

"Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also." 2 Corinthians 8:7 In this journey of life aim that you abound in everything; in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in love, and much grace.
Concerning grace Paul says, abound in this grace also, and finish it.Understand as a believer, the level of grace upon you. The grace upon Jesus Christ was "that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich" 2 Corinthians 8:9. What’s that grace upon us now? Paul says, it is to "receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of ministering to the saints" 2 Corinthians 8:4.It is to prove your own love, and perform the doing of it, "that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have" 2 Corinthians 8:11. Be willing to…

Perfecting holiness in the fear of God!

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God - 2 Corinthians 7:1
In a nutshell here are the promised, the same also you’ve already received;
God promised to hear us in a time accepted, but only when in all things we approve ourselves as the ministers of God, "in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses" 2 Corinthians 6:4. He said that you’re the temple of God; for "God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them ; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people" 2 Corinthians 6:16.



He said, "I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty" 2 Corinthians 6:17-18
He will receive you, only when you choose to be separate; spiritually, physically, socially, economically, etc. He said, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fe…

Be ye also enlarged!

"We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain" 2 Corinthians 6:1.
It is vain if today you be found tossing aside his word for personal advantages. The difference between Old Testament believers and ourselves is they believed God in carnal ways, we don’t. We do it through the spirit. Don’t look back, there is nothing good there.
He called us that in all things we prove "ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings; By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and no…

The earnest of the Spirit

We will have wonderful new bodies in heaven, homes that will be ours forevermore, made for us by God himself and not by human hands. What is the Lord doing now? He’s busy preparing a place for you, a mansion.
But today I want you to see something that Paul say;
"For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life" 2 Corinthians 5:4 KJV
These our bodies (earthly bodies) make us groan and sigh, not for the reason of the many troubles of our lives, no. But that one day we will be clothed upon, and mortality will be swallowed up by life everlasting. 
You know why we groan?
It is because we know, that every moment we spend in these earthly bodies is time spent away from our eternal home in heaven with Jesus. So we groan, looking forward with confidence to our heavenly bodies. Paul says, "we are not afraid but are quite content to die, for then we will be at home with t…

The Epistle of Christ

"... our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life" 2 Corinthians 3:5-6. I’m an epistle/letter of Christ, written with the Spirit of the living God. What’s written is manifestly declared on my heart and can be read by all men. He called me nothing else except the kingdom of heaven, not even to preach about Moses, the Jews but Christ. I determine not to know anything among you also, "save Jesus Christ, and him crucified" 1 Corinthians 2:2.
I’m a letter of Christ; meaning he made me a minister of the New Testament, not the letter. I only preach Christ, not the old covenant, "for the letter killeth ...." 2 Corinthians 3:6. That’s the reason why it was discontinued, the first covenant and all it’s ordinances was a disaster, whether it was good or bad, it makes no difference, for as far as I am aware, it was and still is, the minist…

Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus!

"For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end" 2 Corinthians 1:13.
What is it that you read about and acknowledge?
When you read your Bible, all you see is grace of God, you see his promises too.
Two promises stand out; that of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is for us the grace of God and, ”all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" 2 Corinthians 1:20.The Holy Ghost. Paul says, He which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; "Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts" 2 Corinthians 1:21-22.

When you read your Bible, don’t be distracted from seeing both these two promises, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.  I trust ye shall be able to acknowledge their presence in your life and significance even to the end of your journey here on Earth. 
"For if these things be in you,…
