Will the Real Church Please STAND UP!

Will the Real Church Please Stand Up? Matt. 16:13-16

Jesus asked the disciples, "Who do men say that I am?  They responded with different answers, but Peter said, "Thou art the Christ - the Son of the Living God."  Jesus said, "Flesh and blood did not reveal that to you."  Jesus went on to say "Upon this rock, I will build my Church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it."  The foundation on which His Church would be built is the Revelation of Who He is - to those who know His true identity.

He was talking about true believers: with the strength of so many, so powerful, that the all the power/demons from hell will not prevail against it.  The works of darkness will never defeat those who “know” Him!

You either build your house on a rock, or on sand. On Christ, The Solid Rock I Stand; All Other Ground is Sinking Sand

Only what we build for Christ will last. What do we build for Him?

Merry Christmas!  As the years pass, although we may purchase a gift or two (for my 8 yr old nephew and, of course, my Mom), I realize that the most important and most precious gift we give to one another is our "presence" and our attention.  In other words, when it comes to family, giving the "gift of yourself" is worth more than any store-bought item.  

During the holiday season, do you feel compelled to 
buy gifts because it's expected?  
Do you go overboard to prove something to others or 
to feel good about yourself?  

Sharing your gifts and talents to support your family is absolutely the sweetest blessing and God is glorified!  But most often, we focus on the wrong things:  "What" rather than "Why"

Preparing the Way of the Lord by Preparing the Way for Israel

Jerusalem:  The Capital of Israel and New Home to the American Embassy 

Are you watching the events in the Middle East.  It is of vital importance that you understand the signifcance of these events in the life of the believer and the Body of Christ at large.  I have so much to say on this subject, but this one thing we need to be very clear on:  today's events have been spoken of by the prophets hundreds of years ago and the Word of God says that every "jot and tittle" of His Word - every single syllable - will be carried out to the letter.   Let me share with you from the scriptures. 

I was reading Ezekial 37 and I read something I don't remember reading before.   Whenever I've heard a message preached on it, the focus was always on "the dry bones".  That's the most significant passage that gets all of the attention.  I never realized until now,

So grateful for the gift 🎁 of love, peace and the joy that comes only from God; it strengthens my soul and waters my spirit.  When I think of all the way He has brought my husband and I can’t help but to be filled with gratitude.  So much change, yet we remained secure in God; so much chaos without, yet our hope is anchored in God.

Last year was very difficult for me and my family, and at this time last year, we were facing so many challenges, I honestly didn’t know how we were going to make it through.  But what looked impossible became possible with God.  Not only did we make it, but we discovered the hand of God in our lives, and all the blessings that followed.

So I just want to encourage others:  “In EVERYTHING give THANKS, for this is the will of God concerning you.”  (1 Thess. 5:18) No matter what it looks like right now, God is in the midst of your circumstances and HE WILL bring you through!

Disinterest is an Instruction

“If you enter a town and it welcomes you, eat whatever is set before you. Heal the sick, and tell them, ‘The Kingdom of God is near you now.’ But if a town refuses to welcome you, go out into its streets and say, ‘We wipe even the dust of your town from our feet to show that we have abandoned you to your fate. And know this—the Kingdom of God is near!’ I assure you, even wicked Sodom will be better off than such a town on judgment day.

Then he said to the disciples, “Anyone who accepts your message is also accepting me. And anyone who rejects you is rejecting me. And anyone who rejects me is rejecting God, who sent me.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭10:8-12, 16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Scripture also instructs us:  "Do not cast our pearls before swine." In other words,
