Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Welcome Jesus to Your Home
Pastor Allan was ministering
as I took notes and present his edited sermon for you to enjoy.
When God is moving, the enemy
will do everything in his power to stop it.Here will come strange doctrines, false teaching and opinions not backed
by scripture.The enemy brings doubts,
criticism and negative thinking.When
you realize it is the enemy, you can bind these things in Jesus’ name.
There is a Spiritual shifting
taking place in our church, city, State and Nation.God is working on us individually so that we
become united – not divided.A lot of us
here are hurting in one way or another.But you are in the right place because God is bringing deliverance.You are not alone because the struggle is in many
Christians and also in the world.It is
hard trying to make a living, and raise your children to serve God.It is almost necessary to de-program your
child from what they are learning at school.
We have been speaking about
being just like Jesus.Believers who
followed Christ were actively pursuing Jesus. Crowds pushed and tried to touch
him where ever he went.To find some
solitude, Jesus would hire a boat and travel to the other side, but the crowd
would run around the lake and find him at the new destination.
They pursued him because they saw the wonders
and miracles and they needed him.
If you wanted to spend some
time with Jesus, it was necessary to invite him into your home.Would Jesus be welcome in YOUR home?
Luke 10:38As Jesus and his disciples were on their way,
he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.
Martha wanted everything to
be nice, and she was troubled because her sister Mary was not helping her
prepare the food.She complained to
Jesus, but he rebuked her saying that Mary had made the right choice to sit at
his feet and this was pleasing to him.
Pastor said, that when his
sister expects company, she spends weeks preparing, so that when they arrive,
she can sit and enjoy their company.
How busy are you doing things
that seem important and missing the presence of God.We try to get every thing in life just right,
and miss it when God says, come away and visit with me.
Ministry is a fancy word for
“service.” You have a place in this church to minister by entering in and
allowing the fire of the Holy Spirit to fall on you.
When the Holy Spirit comes
down in our services; we see changes in life styles.Some react differently and may fall, others
shake and weep, but although this is wonderful, it is not what we need to
live.We must also get into the Word of
God and allow the change inside to be reflected in our daily walk.
Prepare yourself before you
come to church.Be ready to serve, and
expect to receive.
Jesus left Martha’s home, and
moved on to a desert place.
John 11: 1Now Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany,
the village of Mary and her sister Martha.
This was the same Mary and
Martha and they sent word to Jesus “please come and heal our brother.”Jesus told his disciples this was not a sickness
unto death, but for the glory of god - - and on purpose he waited two more
Jesus knew the situation and
he was in control.Finally he told his
disciples that Lazarus sleeps.They thought
Jesus meant sleep, so they said, let us not disturb him if he is asleep.Jesus told them plainly, Lazarus is dead, and
I am glad we weren’t there so God will be glorified.
We are often like the
disciples, as we think in the flesh and fail to delve into the deep things of
When Jesus arrived, Martha
went to meet Jesus and she was in great need.Mary stayed in the house grieving.Martha showed her faith, by saying I know that what ever you say will
come to pass.Yet she was thinking about
the future resurrection and not a miracle for today.
The people informed Jesus
that Lazarus had been in the tomb four days.After that length of time it would be impossible for a miracle.
Four days does not matter to
Jesus.He is in control and he knows the
answer.Jesus commanded in a loud voice,
“Lazarus come forth.”
And wrapped and bound by
grave clothes, Lazarus came alive, walking out of the tomb.
Today is the day for your
miracle.Jesus knows that your body
aches, and craves deliverance.
We step up with empty hands,
family problems, health needs; but God already knows and He is in control.Jesus is walking love and he walks through
the crowd with your answer.
We live in a society with so
much stuff that binds people.We are
distracted and carried away with technology.Jesus shows up just in time and He is the anointed one.
Come expecting to receive –
There shall be no more night
mares, no more falling down, Use your mouth and say, “NO MORE.”
Let Jesus restore your mind
and body and walk in your miracle.
Greater is He that is IN you
than he that is in the world.
