DOING THINGS GOD'S WAY

When we move in harmony, it brings success. This was the way of the early church. You must do things in God's way. God wants His church to be unified, of one mind with the True Word of God. The devil wants you to do things contrary to God and many times your family also wants you to do things against God. You must make a choice to serve God or man. (Acts 5:29).

2 Timothy 3:16-17; 16. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17. That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

There is a teaching that through suffering, God is pruning you. When God is pruning, He doesn't need the devil to help. God doesn't bring sickness, disease or pain. In this passage of scripture, Paul is talking to Timothy about God's doctrine. Whatever God does is good. Be sure the doctrine you hear is from God and not from Satan.






It must match up with God's Word. God is able to do exceedingly above what you expect. Don't accept less from yourself. You are more valuable than rubies or any precious gems, or gold. You have been sanctified and made the righteousness of God. You deserve the best. Jesus suffered immense pain so that you may be free from sickness, pain condemnation, poverty and death. You must renew your mind. (Ephesians 4:23). You must be led by the Spirit; walk in the Spirit. He is there to help you.

Hebrews 4:16; "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
God is encouraging you to be bold and courageous and bless others. In blessing others, you receive satisfaction and fulfilment by doing work for God. John 15:2; "Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit."






He is taking away the old and bad stuff to make way for the good things to continue growing and bearing fruit. God's Word will prune you. You become a better person when you worship and fellowship together and increase your  knowledge of God. Remember you are destroyed due to lack of knowledge. (Hosea 4:6). You need the Word of God to help you, prune you and purge you. You cannot exhaust the Word of God. The more time you spend in the Word of God, the more knowledgeable you become. Allow God to prune you and His light within you, will  become brighter and brighter within you. Which you in turn manifest His glorious light to others.

Philippians 4:4; "Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice."
Rejoice in the Lord always. No matter what happens, continue to rejoice in Him. Can you do that? The Lord is the only way you can endure the trials in your life. You must always say and do what He tells you to say or do. Let Him speak through you. Jesus went through all the things we go through everyday. But He went through it without sin. Be holy for He is holy.(1Peter 1:15-16). He loves you so much. He left His Heavenly Throne to become poor that you might be rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9; " For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich."

We all have jobs to do for God and we must be ready. We must love one another as Christ loves us. (John 13:34). Love your neighbor, enemies and intercede for them and also your pastors and leaders of your countries. God wants all of us to come together and pray. You must be prepared for what is coming. You must obey Him and stand on His Word. Many are called but few are chosen.

Matthew 22:14; "For many are called, but few are chosen." God is showing many of what heaven and hell are like and bringing them back. He reveals the truth to us. You must be ready. Listen, watch and wait!!! Speak to whomever He tells you to speak to. Because you are called to plant a seed. You must be willing to listen. He is the God of the living; He is alive.
Revelations 1:18; "I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death." You must pray more and never give up.  Seek Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.

1 Corinthians 15:17; And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Through His, death, burial and resurrection, you are redeemed, restored and delivered from the penalty and bondage of sin. You have remission and atonement for sin and when you submit to Christ and repent, you become the righteousness of God.


John 14:12; "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." You must submit yourself to God and humble yourself before God. Be sure it is the Lord's voice you are listening to. Be afraid of the one who can send your soul to hell, not the one who can kill the body. Open your eyes and look at Him; open your ears and listen to Him; follow and obey Him. Ask Him what you must do to prepare for Jesus return. The world will fear God. He will provide for us during this time that is coming. Don't let anything or anyone deter or distract you from where He wants you to go. We are all little temples of God and together we become one big temple. We need never fear because God is always with us. (Isaiah 41:10-13). We are in the world, but not of the world. (John 17:14-15).

John 14:21; "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me, shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him." When we obey God, it shows we love Him. John 15:16; "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you."
