Help Us Lord!


Help us Lord to understand that we as Christians are the solution as we move under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Help us Lord to understand that we have the only message that is worth dying for, the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Help us Lord to do it all for your glory and to kill our selfish agendas and personal ambitions. Help us Lord to understand that we need the fullness of what the Gospel has to offer, not just part. Help us Lord to be truly saved, to embrace the sanctification process and to be baptize with Holy Spirit and fire so that we may go in Your Power to witness to a dying, confuse and hurting humanity. Oh God, teach us how to love you above all things and how to love one another…In Jesus Name…Amen!

Entering a Time of Corporate Fasting


 

It is amazing to me how we spend our lives messing up before knowing Christ. It equally amazes me how then, after making Christ our savior, we spend our lives hiding our mess.  We hide behind causes and behind ministries, but never allow the Holy Spirit to go deeper into our hearts and sanctify our souls. Worst of all is the idea of people being offered a Gospel where all they have to do is accept Jesus without repenting of their sins. Jesus accept us the way we are, however, we must repent for who we are in terms of our sinful life styles.

 

We have been talking about a corporate fasting in our church, but for some reason the Lord did not allow me to announce the date to start this fast. The fast, I understand now, can’t be about asking the Lord for revival, for our nation, our families or anything external. God is asking for a fasting where HE can deal with us, the condition of our hearts and our personal sin. He desires to do this in preparation for other reasons for fasting and in preparation for the release of HIS glory.

 

In the next couple of weeks we will be announcing a corporate time of fasting and prayer. May the Lord, even now, prepare our hearts and may we be bless with the spirit of repentance. God bless you!

The Difference Between Faith and Stupidity


There is a very thin line between faith and stupidity. Faith is trusting God in spite of the end-result. Faith is an unmovable trust in God even when we do not get that thing that we want “real bad.” Faith is that deep knowledge that constantly reminds us that God knows best. Therefore, if He says no, it is ultimately for our own good. Faith is not measured based on what you get, but it is better measured when you don’t get it but still believe. Hebrews chapter eleven is known as the Hall of Fame of Faith; in Hebrews 11:39 we read the following:

And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise…” NKJV

 

Stupidity, on the other hand, has a form of Godliness; it actually sounds spiritual. We say things such as: “I am believing God for this or for that,” but the problem is that we believe for something that is not only outside of His will for us, but many times is even out side of His Word. Stupidity pretends to manipulate God into doing something for us, just because we want that thing and because we declare our trust in God. The problem is that Stupidity is jumping out of the boat even when Jesus is not there.

Stupidity tells us to finance ourselves into what we want; to get that thing we can’t afford even as the Bible tells us in Romans 13:8

Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.” NKJV

 

Stupidity always goes against God’s Word! Stupidity is the main reason why many of us find ourselves in debt up to our necks. Stupidity takes away our freedom and is designed to hurt every aspect of our lives as we then find ourselves upset with God for not giving us what we want.

The name it and claim it doctrine has really done a great deal of damage in the Body of Christ; it is an arrogant, selfish, destructive and un-biblical doctrine that has ended many lives and ministries.

These days I have been faced with choosing between faith and stupidity, as it relates to some personal decisions. I was very close to; once again, stepping into stupidity and allowing my pride to force me to insisting in something I wanted for one of my dear children. I almost made a devastating mistake that would amount to never ending financial consequences. Nevertheless, with age, white hair and marks from bumps on your head against the wall of ignorance; comes wisdom.

The bottom line is that we must trust God and God alone; not our desires, our wants, not what society tells us we should have and not what is popular. God is God and He has the right to say YES, WAIT and even NO. He can indeed make everything possible, but not everything we want is convenient to us. God is more concerned about our souls than HE will ever be about what we want. God desires to bless us and this is what the Word says about His Blessings:

“The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, 
And He adds no sorrow with it.” Proverbs 10:22 NKJV

If that thing you bought or financed, or got involved with, or that business you started, that promotion you took, that new city you moved into, that new degree that you went after, etc. is adding sorrow to your soul, it was not of God. The word sorrow means: “Pain, hurt, toil.”

God probably gave you a million signs to tell you that it was not of Him. He tried to stop you in many ways, but you went on and did it anyways; just like the builders of The Tower of Babel. Now you must swallow your pride, confess, repent and learn from it. Many of us are feeling all of these three things right now (Pain, Hurt and Toil) I know I do every month, when I look at the stupid loans I took to buy things I did not need and I could not afford…But we learn…eventually…do we?

It is one thing for us to fight the good fight of faith and come against the normal attacks of the enemy. The Apostle Paul established in Second Timothy that it was indeed a good fight; why? Because if we do persevere we win. The other is to see the sorrows directly attached to something we went after outside of the will of God.

When faced with sorrow, our way out is repentance. When faced with persecution, there is no way out, we must press on and establish in our hearts that “His grace is sufficient.”  (2 Corinthians 12:9) In our weakness God gets the glory when we operate in true faith in Him. When we do things outside of faith we are sinning and God will never bless sin. Romans 14:23 tells us:

“…whatever is not from faith is sin.”

 

In the center of God’s will, we will see His mighty hand of deliverance and your emotions protected by His grace. May we embrace a life style of faith and run from continuing in our stupidity.

Videos: Last Sermon From The Series Preparing Our Hearts For Revival


Beloved, I am so excited about our new ministry! My heart is filled with the message of revival. How can we be satisfied with anything less? Pursuing God’s manifested presence is what produces revival; it is the way to live our Christian’s lives.

 

I want to take this opportunity to invite you to visit us; our services take place every Sunday at 3:00 PM, so we don’t interfere with the majority of services around this region. Make Sunday a true holy Sunday; go and enjoy your local church and then come and be a part of what the Lord is doing among us.

 

I preached three sermons on the Message: “Preparing Our Hearts For Revival”. These videos are some of the highlights of the last Sunday preaching this series.

Lord, What About Me?


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hear the sound of thunder; so much louder than what we are used to. I hear the terrorizing voice of Jehovah. My soul trembles…there is so much more! His love is penetrating my heart; I can’t take HIM out of my mind even if I try. I am thirsty. I am like one about to die hanging on a tree. I am hungry like one who is not sure if he will even eat today. I run, but I don’t know exactly what I am going after or what I am running from. I am uncomfortable, lost in a city I have never been in before, on a highway unknown to me, in the middle of a sea of dissatisfactions. I am in the promise land of what my talents can give me, I have tasted the milk and honey of natural achievements, but I have not seen HIS glory. The Shekinah glory comes at me in the form of stories of others.

 

Yes, I heard of Adam and Eve who walked with God in the cool of the day; they saw God’s glory. I heard of Enoch who never knew death, and went on to be with the Lord. I heard of a man and his sons as they built an ark during times when rain was not known. I heard of the rainbow, the sign of a covenant with Noah as God started humanity all over again. Noah saw God’s glory!

 

I heard of Abraham and Sarah and the beginning of a nation that still today is among us…Yes, Abraham saw God’s glory! Can we talk about Moses? Moses saw God’s glory as God delivered His people from the powerful Egypt! Can we talk about Joshua? Joshua saw God’s glory as He conquered the Promise Land! Can we talk about the great Prophet Samuel? Not one of His Words touched the ground of false prophesy…Everything Samuel spoke became reality! Samuel saw God’s glory!

 

What can we say about David? David was in love with God’s glory; David danced before HIM who is worthy. David sang with a never-ending fountain of words that decorated the melodies of heaven on earth. David fought as the greatest warrior that ever existed…David saw His glory!

 

There is no other prophet like John the Baptist as he saw Jesus in the flesh. He heard the voice of the Father and saw the Holy Ghost descending in the form of a dove! John saw the glory! Many witnessed the King of kings and the Lord of lords as He walked among us. The disciples saw HIM closer than anyone. Paul persecuted the church, but on his way to Damascus he saw the glory and God gave him a new heart, the heart that gave us the love of First Corinthians thirteen.

 

One hundred and twenty souls gathered to pray and to celebrate Pentecost. In unity of heart and spirit they saw the tongues of fire as they received the heavenly power to witness. The church was now born! Those there saw God’s glory.

 

In dark times, when the message of the Gospel was stolen by the lies of a man-made church, the Moravians spread God’s truth and became the inspiration for the Great Reformation. In death, the beloved Moravians saw God’s glory. Thousands witnessed the glory of the First Great Awakening, the Second Great Awakening and the Third Great Awakening that shook the earth; they without a doubt saw the light of God’s glory. The Holy Ghost awakened a young man by the name of Evan Roberts from one to five in the morning every day for some time; his hunger opened His eyes and he saw the glory at the doors of the 20th century.

 

In America, William J. Seymour, a black man at the end of his road, was praying seven hours a day. He also opened a door in the 20th century. In Azusa Street the world saw the Shekinah glory of God. Many others came after him and they to saw the glory.

 

But, what about you? But, what about me? I stand here today…as a vessel of clay, as someone who is no one… and I prepare my heart, for the glory of the Lord is near. His Shekinah glory is coming, the Ark of the Covenant is appearing in the hearts of God’s people. I am preparing my heart for revival. Come with me; let us go after God with all of our hearts:

“Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Joel 2:12

Why Are We Hiding? “Let’s Go and Get Them”


It is time to bring down the idols of our hearts and make sure that Jesus takes first place in all of our desires. It is time to stop hiding from the world, for the Bible tells us in Romans 10:14

 

 

“14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?”

 

Beloved, how can we be used by God to change the world if we keep hiding? How can the world change if we don’t tell them about Jesus? We, the Christians, have the answer. We waste so much time pointing fingers at the government, social services, Hollywood, etc. but here we are hiding this powerful life changing message. We need to stay away from the things of this world, but be the light of the world. Mathew 5:14-16 tells us:

 

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

 

Smith Wigglesworth, one of God’s generals in the Pentecostal Movement of last century, was one of the most fascinating men of God of all times; we should learn some very valuable lessons from him. It is said that this man made a commitment with God to win one person for the Lord every day before going to sleep at night. On one occasion Wigglesworth could not sleep. That day, he did not win anybody for Jesus so he went out in the middle of the night, found one man on the street, ministered the Gospel to him, and won him for Jesus. What an amazing example! On the other hand, Wigglesworth did not allow any other book or magazines in his house. It is said that the only book he read was indeed the Bible. Wigglesworth was an example of someone who hated the things of this world, but was passionate about souls.

 

We go to church, we homeschool our children or enroll them in Christian schools, we are always with our families and our comfortable circle of friends, and all that is good, but we never take the time to go and tell somebody about Jesus. Beloved, we need a passion for souls! We are indeed called to hate the things of this world and what the world has to offer. We must remember that Satan is the god of this world and we must remember that we are not from here. But we must have compassion for the lost…yes, the lost! You know, those kids showing half of their underwear in public, the homosexuals, our lost politicians, that co-worker that continuously pushes your buttons, that annoying family member, that woman that is on her third divorce, that man consumed by addictions and the list goes on and on. Who knows? They could repent of their sins and be saved from the flames of hell…but we keep hiding!

 

Holiness ought to give us a heart for the things of God, a special love for our brothers and sisters, but holiness also ought to break our hearts for lost souls. I say it is time to go and get them!

 

“Have you no wish for others to be saved? Then you’re not saved yourself, be sure of that!”Charles H. Spurgeon

¿Cómo Está Tu Vida De Oración?


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

La oración es el aspecto más importante en la vida del Cristiano; lamentablemente es también lo que más descuidamos. Es imposible caminar en el poder y sabiduría de Dios sin desarrollar una vida de oración. Me fascina el estudiar sobre grandes hombres y mujeres de Dios, en la historia del Cristianismo, que pudieron desarrollar la extraordinaria disciplina de la oración. Estos fueron hombres y mujeres con una peculiar hambre y sed de Dios.

En estos días he estado estudiando la vida de hombres como William J. Seymour, John Wesley, Evan Roberts y otros. Estos hombres tenían algo en común; eran hombres que vivían vidas consagradas a la oración. Permíteme preguntarte: ¿Cómo está tu vida de oración? Si eres Cristiano verdadero, la oración es lo más importante en nuestras vidas; más importante que nuestras esposas, nuestros hijos, nuestros trabajos, etc. Lamentablemente, utilizamos las tareas y preocupaciones de la vida como excusas para no orar.

La oración envuelve muchas cosas; en mi vida de oración lo menos que disfruto es hablar; me gusta cantarle a Dios, pero el hablar no mucho.  Después de todo, ¿Qué es más importante, lo que yo le diga a Dios, o lo que Él me diga a mi? Sí le hablo, sí le digo que lo amo, sí le alabo, le presento mis quejas, mis peticiones, mis batallas, sí intercedo por otros, pero lo que más disfruto en la oración es la paz del silencio y escuchar la voz de Dios en mí corazón y a través de Su Palabra. También disfruto el leer sobre todo lo que me dé información sobre los grandes Avivamientos del mundo; dichos testimonios avivan mi fe.

Mas tenemos que tener mucho cuidado, ya que existen elementos que pueden afectar nuestras oraciones grandemente. Elementos que pueden hacer de nuestras oraciones vanidad y perdida de tiempo. Si en este momento estás batallando con alguno de estos elementos que voy a mencionar, no te preocupes, pídele a Dios que te ayude y te de fuerzas para poder romper con las paredes que bloquean tus oraciones. En el libro de Marcos 11:22-26 el Señor Jesús nos dice lo siguiente:

22 Y respondiendo Jesús, les dice: Tened fe en Dios. 23 Porque de cierto os digo que cualquiera que dijere á este monte: Quítate, y échate en la mar, y no dudare en su corazón, mas creyere que será hecho lo que dice, lo que dijere le será hecho. 24 Por tanto, os digo que todo lo que orando pidiereis, creed que lo recibiréis, y os vendrá. 25 Y cuando estuviereis orando, perdonad, si tenéis algo contra alguno, para que vuestro Padre que está en los cielos os perdone también á vosotros vuestras ofensas. 26 Porque si vosotros no perdonareis, tampoco vuestro Padre que está en los cielos os perdonará vuestras ofensas.”

 

 

            En estos versos vemos dos elementos que afectan nuestras oraciones grandemente:

  1. La Falta de Fe: Hermanos, tenemos que orar creyendo. Estos montes representan situaciones en nuestras vidas que son imposibles de resolver sin el poder de Dios. Es bueno aceptar que no podemos resolver estas situaciones en nuestras propias fuerzas, pero tenemos que creer que Dios sí puede. Dios es el Dios de los imposibles. La Biblia nos dice en el libro de Hebreos 11:6 que sin fe es imposible agradar a Dios.
  2. La Falta de Perdón: La falta de perdón es una violación directa al Evangelio de Cristo y refleja la arrogancia de nuestro corazón. Tenemos que recordarnos los unos a los otros que todos fuimos pecadores y que aún hoy día, aún siendo salvos, el pecado nos domina de diferentes formas ya que los deseos de la carne siguen vivos en nuestros adentros. Nadie es mejor que nadie…pecado es pecado. Si Cristo nos perdonó siendo Él inocente, ¿Cómo es posible que nosotros no perdonemos siendo nosotros culpables?

Queridos hermanos, se acercan tiempos aún peor de los que vemos hoy día; sin la oración nuestra fe flaqueará. Los animo a vivir vidas consagradas en la oración. Sepárate con Dios, toma tiempo en Sus Escrituras, aliméntate de los testimonios de otros para que crezca tu fe, háblale a Dios, vacía tu alma con Él, pero más que todo, escúchale…una palabra de Dios podría cambiar tu vida para siempre.

Eating My Way Back to Health


 

Beloved, I don’t write about these issues necessarily because I want to or because I want to brag about it. If you knew my life you will know very quickly that I have very little to brag about. I have been a great failure and even now I am standing because of God’s mercy. On the issue of food my awful numbers speak for themselves on how I have been killing myself physically for years. However, I feel compel to share these things because I am sure that this information will help somebody out there. My blog is not about exalting me; my blog is about exalting Jesus.

As many of you guys know, a month ago, June 4th to be exact, I went to the doctor to check my cholesterol and triglycerides. My cholesterol number was 238 (39 point above the acceptable maximum) My triglycerides numbers were a terrifying 590 (441 points above the acceptable maximum) Today, exactly one month since I discovered these numbers, my cholesterol went down to 207, a drop of 31 points and only 8 points away from the acceptable maximum. The triglycerides numbers changed in an even more dramatic way, they drop from 590 to 380.

I hesitated with the Vegan way of eating because I really, really, really like to eat; but I am enjoying this way of eating. As I eat better I am enjoying exercising more and my energy level is much better. These numbers were indeed impressive and they were reached in less than three months. To God be the glory!

I know that I have a long way to go with my triglycerides specially; I also know that I have to drop my weight big time but it feels good to finally be moving in the right direction. By the way, I am now 235 pounds; a month ago or so ago I was over 250.

I don’t want to take medication, but I want healing and the healing is found in God’s way of eating. Beloved, it is true; we can eat our way back to health. The Vegan approach is not a diet; it is indeed a way of life. I never go hungry; I eat until I am satisfied and day-by-day my body is adapting and actually craving healthy food. It is not easy; but gluttony is a sin. Unhealthy desires for food cause us the fall and that same unhealthy desire is killing us today.

I know that we like to laugh and make jokes about our weight and the foods we love to eat and not willing to give up, but it is not funny when we find ourselves facing a stroke or a heart attack that could severely damage the way we function or even kill us. It is not funny when our love ones suffered when we are gone too soon!!!!!
