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

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.

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. Town, TH. M, D.D. 

This article was taken from Elmer Town's book and each church volunteer should have a copy. Thanks for taking the time to read id. Evangelist Dr. Annie Eskridge, DMin areskridge6840@ATT.NET

Maintain a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ Part 2

The second part focus on Fasting as taken from Isaiah 58:5,6.
1. Preparation 1 John 1:9
2. Fasting is a spiritual tool for strengthening and transforming grace in our lives.
3. Abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink, for a period of time.
4. An absolute fast, Acts 9:9, Ezra 10:6 which means nothing.
5. Water fast (Luke 4:1,2).
In order to have a successfully time of consecration there must be preparation. Set objectives, make commitment, how long, the type of fast God wants, what physcial or social activities tyou will be restricted to. Prepare yourslef spiritually, physically, confess sins, seek forgiveness  and make resitution. Prayer and fasting enable us to humble ourselves before God, so that we will become more sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Reading the Word of God- 2 Timothy 2:15 tells us to "study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." This should be the first thing that we should know. we cannot pray and fast if we have no knowledge of what the Word of God say. We must read the Bible aloud daily, so that our inner man can be feed. then, meditate on the Word of God. Remember the Lord cannot bring anything back to your remembrance if you have not put  anything in. Evangelist Mother Eskridge, DMin

put anything in.

Maintain a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ Part 1

We live in a culture that increasingly leans toward materialism and secularism. It is not always easy to stay focuses on spiritual noursishment without God's help. The things that Women could do in the Bible was limted. Prayer, fasting and reading the Word of God was not limited to anyone. Many go through life as a failure because they have not learn how to avoid the pitfalls of satanic influences. There is a way for all who know the Word of God to apply it correctly. One thing for sure God's people should have a committed prayer life, time of consecration and time of studying the Word of God.

Prayer- is a way of communicating with God. the most perfect prayer is praying in the Holy Spirit because no one is able to stop it or intercept it. 1 Cor 14:15 tells us to pray in the understanding as well. Types of prayers: 1) Prayer of Agreement(Matt 18:19),2) Prayer of Faith (James 5:15;Mark 11:24),3) Prayer of Consecration and Dedication (Luke 22:41-42), 4) Prayer of Praise and Worship(Luke 2:20,Luke 18:43),5) Prayer of Intercession Ephesians 1:15-18,Phil 1:3-4),6) Prayer of Binding and Loosing Matt 18:18-19.

God has provided each type of prayer for a specific purpose. You must be clear about which type you are praying. Always pray the Word of God. These are only a few but there are many other in the Bible.   Mother Dr. Annie Eskridge,
Parts of prayer; adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication.

Thanks be to God.

Thanks be to God!!!
The year of 2018 has been a year for me to reflect on and to give God all of the thanks for being God. When I look back and see how many surgeries I had and the code blues that I experienced. Thanks be to God that I am still among the Saints. It was God grace and mercy that I am able to say thank you.  Lord, you have truly brought me from a mighty long way.

I can truthfully say that, there were days when I was in the hospital I did not do anything but sleep. Several times I was taken back to intensive care unit, but God!! He has keep me and I am truly grateful. It pays to serve the True and Living God without wavering.

I have shared with many that you should study the Word of God daily.

We should do our best to present ourselves to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness (2 Tim 2:15-16). So, if we do not study God’s word we will not be able to rightly divide it.

The only way to become acquaint, we must know it. To become acquainted with God is by studying and seeking the things that God loves and wants for our lives. My prayer is Lord create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit. I pray and ask Him, not to take His Holy Spirit from me. I want to know Him and to know what He would do in all situations, this is why studying is so important. Then, prayer time, praise and worship to God in my quiet time.

Then, please do not forget those positive confession daily that comes from the Word of God. I am a child of God, I have been redeemed from the hand of the enemy, forgiven, saved by grace through faith, justified, sanctified, a new creature in Him, partaker of His Divine Nature, redeemed from all curses, Delivered from the power of darkness. Thank you Jesus, then I am led by the Spirit of God, a Son of God, kept in safety wherever I go, getting all of my needs met by Jesus, casting all of my cares on Jesus, strong in the Lord and the power of His Might, doing all things through Christ who strengthens me, an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus, Heir to the blessing of Abraham and my list goes on and on.

Praise God when I was in the hospital for 45 days, I was able to make my confession without having the list in front of me, because I had already put it in my spirit. We all should constantly put the Word of God in our spirit. It is good to pray in tongues daily as we praise God for all of His goodness and mercy. Praise God for another day. Be blessed. Mother Evangelist Annie R. Eskridge, DMin.
