Seek God Early in the Morning
Today’s service was reversed. Pastor began his message before the praise and worship. I took notes and present his digested sermon for you.
The Holy Spirit is necessary. Jesus told his disciples to wait and receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as it was important. We must have a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit as we seek the Face of God.
When Jesus rose from the dead, He showed himself to his disciples, touching them and eating with them to prove he was alive. For 40 days he taught them explaining the Prophesies regarding his coming and his death, and that He truly is the Messiah.
Psalms 63:1 O God, you are my God; early will I seek you: my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
Pastor encouraged us to fast maybe two days each week as we pray and seek God.
First thing in the morning when you wake, say: “Good Morning God.” Tell God, “What I have now is not satisfying and I desire more of your presence and I desire to be obedient.”
Our land is dry, and not like it was 10, 20 or even 50 years ago. Spiritually we are dry and barren as a nation. Right now, God desires to do a good work as we seek Him.
Modern day prophets are speaking, and Revival is breaking out here and there. We have the ability to encourage one another. The more you seek God, the more you will find Him.
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you;
Psalms 63:2-4 - - To see your power and your glory, so as I have seen you in the sanctuary; Your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you. - - Thus will I bless you while I live: I will lift up my hands in your name.
Make sure all is right with your brother. Lift clean hands that have been washed in the Blood. It is the blood of Jesus that cleanses.
When I stand before the throne, I want to hear, “Well done.”
Psalms 63:5-6 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips. When I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the night watches.
Worship God and praise Him when no one else is watching. This is pleasing to the Lord.
What you do in secret comes out in your daily life.
Psalms 63:7-8 Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadow of your wings will I rejoice. My soul follows close after you: your right hand upholds me.
Our country is heading for destruction unless something drastically changes. We as citizens must vote because we cannot close our eyes to the present mind set of the current administration and allow it to continue.
As citizens you have a responsibility to vote and obey God as you use wisdom and good common sense that God gives you.
As a pastor I am not supposed to preach politics, but please open your eyes and do what is right.
At this point, Pastor invited the musicians to come and for the prayer team to come forward. What ever you need, God is here to answer and deliver you. It is time to walk in freedom.
The Worship portion of the service began, with people streaming to the front to be prayed for. There was a sweet spirit of expectancy.
