Resilient faith

 Resilient faith is one that will bounce back, you take a licking and keep on ticking.  this is the way we feel when we are faced with challenges.  Faith is the heart and not the head. Paul tells us in Romans "for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confessed, resulting in salvation (Romans 10:10 NASB).

Life can be tough.  We need resilient faith to survive during this time.  Faith may come easy to you, or you may be like many who struggle with it. Thanks be to God we need to understand faith when difficulties knock on our door, you faith will be tested , tried and shaken upside down.  However, we can maintain faith in God that is resilient. Resilient faith is a quality of faith that's able to see you through trouble, temptation and trials and in the end we are victorious.

Resilient faith provides:

an actual foundation for a sure hope for mankind. It frees you to do what is good and right and it helps you find joy even in a world of pain and suffering.  this is ours because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. we should be ready to fight, tough and violent and refuse to give up. we are winners, we have taken the shield of faith and we are able to quench all of the fiery darts of the  wicked one.

God's Unstoppable Power

We live in a world where we are faced with many ungodly activities. God's perfection in the beginning was destroyed. God's pursue is unstoppable.  Being unstoppable didn't mean we wouldn't have challenges.  The power of the Holy Spirit fulfills God's plan for the church. Just to name a few apostles in the Bible that was unstoppable.

The word reminds one of the early days of the church.  The apostles were faced with conflicts to stop the progress, but the adversary actions fueled them to spread the gospel.  The Bible is sufficient for successful living. Jesus has promised us that He would show up if we would seek Him. As Saints of God, we too must be unstoppable as we minister to those who ae hungry for the gospel.

Peter and John was sent to jail for sharing the gospel.  They were determine not to be unstoppable as they were called to be an apostle. They were willing to take a stand for Jesus Christ.  We must have that same determination, that we will have an unstoppable attitude toward the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

God's Unstoppable Plan

God’s story is very powerful. God spoke, and light and life exploded into a great creation. God prepared a perfect place for man and woman to live in the beginning. He provided every good thing that was needed for one another. But doubt was entered in, they did not trust God. Goodness turned into disbelief in His Word and disobedience to God’s command. Sin and death shattered God’s perfect world. This led to all human being born spiritually dead.

God had a perfect plan for His people before this took place. Nothing can stop God’s plan this is why it is called God’s unstoppable plan. God condemned the serpent that tempted the people to sin. God promised that a Savior would defeat His enemy and ours. Jesus dying on the Cross triumphed over Satan.

From this came renewal to all who believed in the Word of God. But sin had spreaded everywhere. Nothing could destroy or loosen sin’s grip on the human heart, not even a flood. Families grew, nations were formed, but the knowledge of the true and living God almost vanish.

God chose one man, Abram, without hesitation he left behind the comforts and idols of his home to follow God. Most of all God promised to bless the world. God was pointing to Jesus, His gift to the world. We must accept Jesus as the true and living God.

In the end the power of God was unstoppable and it had to be fulfilled. Be bless and Happy New Year.  Always remember Jesus in everything you say and do. Evangelist Dr. Annie R. Eskridge, DMin areskridge6840@att.net.

Changes 2015

As we enter 2015 we should purpose in our heart to prepare for change. In 2014 we have experienced multiple turn around and today the gas prices are dropping. As one writer wrote..."Jesus, knew he was going away, told Peter that Satan specifically asked for him," to sift him as wheat. Before the test, Jesus told Peter, "but I have prayed for you, Simon, that your  faith would not fail."(Luke 22:31, 32 NIV). Jesus prayed so that Peter would be Prepared for Change!. The point is are you prepared for change? Although through the Bible we can see changes even in todays political arena we can see changes.

As Christians, we too must prepare for changes in our lives. Jesus has assured us, that we would have tribulation; but be of good cheer, we will overcome the world. Regardless of what changes we are faced with, Jesus assures us that in  this world in Him, we would have peace( Read John 16:33 and Heb 13:4-6).

Although our faith is shaken, we must stay focus on the Word of God with all changes. Many changes have taken place in my life , but I'm still holding on to my faith and I will not let it go. I know who I am in Christ Jesus and I pray that you know who you are in Christ Jesus. Just one thought for today. As Holy Ghost filled Saints of God are you ready for a change? It's so important for us to stay focus on Jesus Christ and the Word of God. Being totally sold out will send the devil running every time. May you and your family have a bless New Year , then walk in the calling that God has placed upon you.

Stay tune CWC Anthology be released in May 2015. Yours truly has an article included in this collections that will bless you. areskridge6840@att.net.

Importance of Prayer

It is so important for all Believers in Jesus Christ to pray. There is no one that would have given his son for us. We need to thank Him every chance that we have for dying on the Cross for us

We have been redeemed, set free and delivered by the blood of the Lamb. This is why we must always pray without ceasing. “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14 KJV). The Old Testament tabernacle was where God dwelt among the Jews in the wilderness. God is dwelling in the person of Jesus Christ.

We need to stay on the wall praying, if we have been called to that ministry. The more we pray, the more we become more sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Praying helps us to stay in tune with the Holy Spirit. When we pray the Holy Spirit builds us up as we spend time praying and thanking God for all that He has done and continue to do for us.

If you are not connected to a good prayer group, then start one and keep the prayers going up every day. Thank Him for your salvation, for today, for your friends, for power over the enemy, for your church. Just thank Him for all things and give God all of the praises. We can never thank Him enough.

Regeneration produces spiritual life

            Every person has a living body, soul and at regeneration is given a new nature. Paul reminded the Ephesians, “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins” (Eph 2:1). Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and... have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).

            People need spiritual rebirth because they are spiritually dead. Adam was created a living soul (Gen. 2:7). He was alive both physically and spiritually. God warned against eating the forbidden fruit and said, “In the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” (Gen 2:17). Although Adam ate the fruit and lived physically 930 years (Gen 5:5), he died spiritually the day he ate the fruit. As a result, everyone is born into the world spiritually dead (Eph 2:1). But when people receive Jesus Christ they receive spiritual life; this is eternal life (John 5:24).

            In regeneration, believers not only receive the presence of Christ, but of the entire Trinity. Christ promised that the Father would also indwell believers (John 14:23). THE Holy Spirit indwells Christians as well and His presence is the guarantee of new life (Roman.8:11). Hence, when people are regenerated, they receive the life of God because they are indwelt with the presence of God. The very life of God lives in the soul of believers.

            When Jesus told His disciples, “I am the vine, you are the branches” (John 15:5), He was illustrating the unique relationship into which every believer enters at the moment of conversion. The believers becomes one with Christ. Paul often wrote of being “in Christ” and “Christ in you.” This paragraph taken from “Your Ministry of Evangelism…..a Guide for Church Volunteers by Elmer L.
