Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
I have some Good News for you today-
God does not need your help to defeat the devil.
Jesus has already did it and given you the victory Colossians 2:15 says; “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”
Romans 8:37 states; “all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”.
Your part is to cooperate in the victory by simply standing your ground, which is victory ground. As I have said for years you’re “fighting” from victory not fighting for victory. You’re standing your ground on the Rock of Jesus Christ.
In Ephesians 6:10–18, the passage on spiritual warfare, the word “wrestle” appears only once (verse 12), while the word “stand” appears four times—“stand against the wiles of the devil,” “withstand in the evil day,” “having done all, to stand,” “Stand therefore” (verses 11, 13–14). Four times the Holy Spirit tells us to stand. Yet, many believers are focusing on wrestling their way to victory! Standing is your place of security.
You are already on victory ground. You already have everything in Christ (1 Corinthians 3:21, 23).
You are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ (Ephesians 1:3). The enemy knows this. And that is why his tactic is to “deceive” you and make you think that you don’t have the victory.
So when he attacks you by saying, “Look at your lack! How are you going to pay the bills?” stand your ground. Declare, “I am already blessed in Christ!” It doesn’t matter how much you have in the bank. You are richly supplied because you are in Christ. And as the need arises, the supply will be there and that is His promise. (Phil.4:19)
It is the same with you healing. The enemy will try to attack you with symptoms in your body. He will try to put pain in your body, and make you feel weak here and there, so that you think that you can not be well. He is trying to make you believe that you don’t have your healing. That is the time to be conscious of Jesus’ finished work and declare, “I am not trying to get healed, I am healed! I am standing on the victory ground which Jesus has given me!” By His Stripes I Am Healed! See-
It makes a world of difference when you fight from victory and not for victory!
Today The Victory is Yours- Embrace it, Believe it and thank God for it!
Think about this;
Moses & Noah were Water proof! Joseph was Pit proof,
David was Giant Proof Shadrach, Meshach & Abednego were Fireproof, Daniel was Lion proof,
Jesus was Death proof -
You Are- Living Proof- The Victory Is Yours!
see you at Church
Why we Celebrate Pentecost Sunday at New Creation Church-
In 2 Corinthians 3:6 the Scripture says; …for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life...”
To the Jews, the feast of Pentecost is a celebration of the giving of God’s law. It takes place 50 days after the Passover feast. When God gave the Israelites the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai, it was 50 days after they had celebrated their first Passover and come out of slavery in Egypt.
But what happened after God gave them the law on the first Pentecost? Three thousand people died! (Exodus 32:28) Contrast this with another Pentecost in the New Testament when Christ birth His Church In the book of Acts, it says that when Pentecost had fully come, God gave not the law but the Holy Spirit, and what happened? Three thousand people were saved (Acts 2:41), which goes to show that “the letter [the law] kills, but the Spirit gives life!”
The law, which was “written and engraved on stones”, ministered death. It killed 3,000 people. That is why the apostle Paul calls it “the ministry of death” and “the ministry of condemnation”. (2 Corinthians 3:7–9) On the other hand, the Spirit ministered life—3,000 people were saved.
When you come under the law by trying to keep God’s commandments in order to be blessed, it will lead to death. There will be deadness in your life, ministry, health and career. But when you depend on the Spirit of Grace, it will lead to life. You will see breakthroughs and miracles (Galatians 3:5), and manifestation the fruit of the Spirit.
So, if you want to be blessed, make sure that you are on the right mountain. You see, the law was given on Mount Sinai, but the Spirit was given on Mount Zion. That is why the Bible says that “you have not come to the mountain [Sinai] that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest…But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels”. (Hebrews 12:18, 22) The Lord blesses you out of Zion (Psalm 128:5), and not Sinai!
By grace you have been saved through faith. (Ephesians 2:8) Now, continue in the Spirit of Grace. Remain on the right mountain as God continues to supply all the miracles in your life through Jesus’ sacrifice for you. He paid it All! Come boldly to the Throne of Grace and receive The Life Giving Power Of The Holy Spirit!
See You Sunday- Love in His Grace, Pastor Joe

Give on line-
When the Apostle Paul went to the great and intellectual Grecian city of Corinth, he said, “I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Corinthians 2:2). When Paul described what his message was, he said, “We preach Christ crucified” (1 Corinthians 1:23).
To the people of Corinth the preaching of the cross was foolishness and nonsense.
But Paul said, “The foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men” (1 Corinthians 1:25). In that great intellectual center, the Cross of Christ was a stumbling block to the Jew, and to the Gentiles it was foolishness.
This “Gospel” of Christ and Him crucified is still foolishness to millions who are perishing all over the world today. Few people recognize that the answer to all the world’s problems can be found at the foot of the Cross.
As we stand at the cross today and look at a confused and frustrated world, God still asks the question, “Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who Believe” (1 Corinthians 1:20-21,)
“We preach Christ crucified.” This is the focal point of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a picture of blood flowing from Christ’s veins as He hung on the cross. The message of shed blood is gross to many, and they turn from such a gory and horrible sight, feeling offended and even outraged. Many people will accept Christ’s teaching and character , but they reject His crucifixion.
The people of Corinth were blind to Christ crucified and what it meant. To them, His death in this manner was foolishness. The Greek word here is moria, which literally means “idiocy.” Out of this Greek word comes the word moron. This is how the Corinthians evaluated the crucifixion of Christ.
The idea of a world being saved by Christ crucified was indeed foolishness to those who were proud and boastful and who thought the wisdom of the world was invented by them. How different it is for those of us who, in simple faith, know Christ crucified. For us, the cross is the power of God and the wisdom of God.
There are many deeply religious but have not yet come to the point where they are willing to accept Christ and Him crucified. Thus, they stumble on blindly toward eventual judgment and destruction, not realizing that they are rejecting Christ and Him crucified, which is the only hope for salvation.
When we look at the cross, we see several things:
First, in the cross we see the clearest evidence of the world’s guilt. At the cross of Christ, sin reached its maximum. Its most terrible display took place at Calvary. It was never so wicked! We see the human heart laid bare and its corruption fully exposed. The Scripture teaches that person’s heart is desperately wicked.
Christ does come to us every day–in the form of Bibles that we do not read, in the form of churches that we do not attend, in the form of human need that we pass by.
In the judgment hall of Pilate the cry was heard, “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” The people had seen His miracles. They had heard His words of Love! They had seen how He relieved suffering humanity.
Why this murderous spirit?
The answer is found deep in the human heart. Human nature has not changed, and as we stand and look at the cross, we see clear evidence that humankind is basically wrong, and we hear the thunderous verdict of God Himself when He says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Second, in the cross we see the strongest proof of God’s hatred of what sin does. God has stated that the soul that sins shall die (Ezekiel 18:20) and that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
To gain a clear understanding of God’s attitude toward sin, we only have to consider the purpose of Christ’s death. The Scripture says, “Without shedding of blood there is no remission” (Hebrews 9:22). Here is a positive statement that there can be no forgiveness of sin unless our debt has been paid.
God will not tolerate sin. He condemns it and demands payment for it. God could not remain a righteous God and compromise with sin. His holiness and His justice demand the death penalty.
The tendency today is to feel that such a position on God’s part is too severe. So we find ourselves manufacturing another gospel. We may say that sin is not that bad–but God said it is very bad. So bad that He demands the death penalty. When we look at the cross we see how drastically God deals with sin. The Scripture says, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us” (2 Corinthians 5:21). If God had to send His only Son to the cross in order to pay for sin, then sin must be so dark in the sight of God.
Third, in the cross we see a glorious exhibition of God’s love. We look out upon the world of nature, and in the provisions and plans made for our happiness we discover a revelation of God’s love. Yet as wonderful as these things are in revealing divine love, nothing is comparable to the sacrifice of Calvary. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
Paul writes to the Roman Christians, “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:6-8).
Fourth, in the cross we see the way to Victory. All of us have at times been defeated by Satan. We are held in bondage to sin and are controlled by the power of the devil. The cross is the instrument by which God delivers us from the penalty of our sin and from the hand of Satan.
God makes it plain that our old carnal nature was dealt with at the cross, so that in our standing in Christ this old nature has no more power over us. We are told that our “old man was crucified with Him” (Romans 6:6) and that we do not need to serve sin any longer. The Scripture promises that sin shall no longer have dominion over us (Romans 6:14). Because of Jesus’ sacrifice on The Cross-
Thousands of Christians wrestle with temptation and sin because they don’t know the Power Of The Cross. Satan uses jealousy, pride, gossip, gluttony, sex and old appetites to control them. However, in the cross you have power over all those things because Christ overcame those temptations and sins.
God cleansed you 100% at the cross and made you a New Creation- We can say with Paul, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). You have been delivered once and for all!
The cross of Christ is not only the basis of our peace and hope–but it is the means of our eternal salvation, Righteousness and healing was accomplished. The goal of the cross is not only a full and free pardon, but a changed life lived in fellowship with God. No wonder Paul said 2,000 years ago, “We preach Christ crucified.” The world needs this message today. This is the message of hope, peace and acceptance with Our God. The world calls it “foolishness” but we who have been saved it IS The Power and Wisdom Of God.
What are you doing with the Cross of Christ? Is the Cross foolishness to you or is it The Wisdom and the Power Of God? Have you received God’s gift of Salvation through the Cross of Christ by believing in Him?
You can by simply asking-
Pray this Prayer- “Lord God I believe and receive what Jesus accomplished for me at the Cross; in Jesus Name Amen-
Love in His Grace, Pastor Joe-
See You At 12:00 Noon New Creation Church!
...But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matt:6:33
What does God have to say to us about our life concerns? According to Matthew 6:31, The Lord Jesus tells us, “Do not worry.” He is not saying that we don’t need all the necessary things of life (food, clothes, ect.); because in the same portion of scripture He says, “For your heavenly Father knows that you need All these things.” (Matthew 6:32)
God cares about us having these things. He wants us to have all these things. In fact, He wants all these things added to us. And He tells us that the way these things are added to us is by us seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Therefore, our number one priority every day is to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness. It is not to seek to add these things to ourselves.
What is righteousness? Righteousness is not right behavior. It is right standing with the Father. It is the clearance of all your guilt, which makes you able to stand before God. It is not something you get through right behavior. It is a gift from God. Paul calls it “the gift of righteousness”. (Romans 5:17) And to “seek” this gift is to be conscious of the fact that you have it, to confess that you are righteous in Christ.
So this righteousness we are told to seek is not right behavior, but right standing before God, which comes to us as a gift when we receive salvation.
At the cross, Jesus didn’t just remove our sins, He also gave us His righteousness so that today, we can come boldly before the throne of God and receive freely everything that He died to give us!
Today, if you want the good things in life, be assured that your Heavenly Father knows that you need these things. Just seek His righteousness, not your own righteousness, and “all these things shall be added to you”!
He’ll take care of all the divine setups- all the background work to bring you the provision you need and desire. So, Believe His Promises as you put Him first and go forward in what God has called you to do in your life and in His Kingdom.
Love in His Grace, Pastor Joe
Psalm 127:2 Says; It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.
Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Or you’ve said, “I was up the whole night!!!” I couldn’t sleep at all... I was worried about the bills, my kids, my health... as the list goes on and gets longer and longer as you dwell on it...
The good news is that God has an amazing promise for you-
God “gives His beloved sleep”.
Who are His beloved? That’s You and Me!
Because You are in Christ, You are His beloved. Ephesians 1:6; 2 & Thessalonians 2:13
God says, “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows…” In other words, it is pointless to worry and lose sleep because the truth is, “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.” Psalm 127:1
Jesus said in Mathew 6:25 That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?
Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?
Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing,yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Here’s the Key-
You have to come to the place of saying; “God I Trust You”. I’m going to trust that my life and times because You are my God! Thank you that You Will deliver me-
As David said in Psalm 31:14-17 But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.”My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.
Let me not be put to shame, Lord, for I have cried out to You-
Noticed David said...
You Have To Say It!
So, let God be the one who builds your career and watches over your finances- Let Him be the one who guards your health, your singleness, your marriage and your children.
Don’t worry and stay up late as if you are the source of the increase, or the one who has the power to make things happen and save the situation. No, God is the one and He says to you, “My child, throw that care to Me and go to sleep.” And while you are sleeping, He is working on your situation. He, who neither slumbers nor sleeps Psalm 121:3–4
He works the night shift for you as you sleep!
Did you read that? God works for you while your sleeping-
But because we are such doers and performers, it is hard for us to let go and let God take over. But when we actually do, casting all our cares, anxieties and worries once and for all into His hands, we will see how He cares for us affectionately and watchfully. 1 Peter 5:7
We will see Him taking care of our problems and working things out for good.
This is Your Time to Trust your Father’s love for you. Cast your cares on Him and have say; “No more sleepless nights-“
Love in His Grace, Pastor Joe
This Next Week We Will Be Studying The Powerful Life Changing Words Jesus Spoke-
It’s my desire as your Pastor that you will grasp the Powerful Revelation Of The Mighty Words Of Jesus- His Words Are Life Changing!
We will be studying the Words of Jesus Together-
Have you thought about the Words you speak?
Words Of Life or words of death-
What are some of the words you can replace in your vocabulary?
Write down a few and give it some thought-
Words have creative power. When you speak something out, you give life to what you are saying. It is one thing to believe you are blessed. When you say I am blessed it takes on a whole new meaning, that is when blessings come looking for you- instead of you looking for the blessings-
Psalm 107:2 says, “Let the Redeemed of the Lord say so.” Doesn’t say think so or hope so If you are going to the next level and accomplish your dreams it has to come out of your mouth, you have to declare it. God created the world by speaking it into existence. You can believe all day long and not see anything happen. Nothing happens until you speak. Instead of believing you are coming out of debt, you need to say you are coming out of debt.Instead of hoping it, say it. Not just hope you will have a good year, but say it! Are you giving life to your faith by speaking it out?
Psalm 91 says, “…I will say of the Lord He is my refuge, my fortress, my shield…” The next verse says, “He will deliver me, protect me, cover me”. Notice the connection, “I will say,” and “He will do-Doesn’t say I believe He is my refuge, I believe He is my strength. No David said it, and spoke it out. Whatever is in your heart needs to be in your conversation Talk like it has already happened Talk like it is on the way When I get married When I graduate from college. Think of the opposite of Psalm 91, “I will not say of the Lord and He will not do.” That is the principal nothing happens until you speak.What are you saying of the Lord Don’t talk about how big the problem is, talk about how big your God is! Are you speaking victory over your life, over your family, over your career? Whatever God has put in your heart, declare it is coming to pass- Nothing happens until you speak out His promise over your life!
As we begin a new year together, I’m so excited about all that I believe is ahead for you—blessings, favor, and the goodness of God-
You see, before you were even born, God didn’t just know you; He had already planted a wonderful destiny in you.
The Scripture says it this way:
1 Cor. 2:9 ...Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit...
Let His Spirit Begin Now To Stir Your Heart to step into New uncharted blessings God has instore for you- Reach out and start this your Speaking His Word!
Love Pastor Joe Sabolick
If you’re like most Christians, you want to live a better life.
You want better health, better finances, better relationships and better life experiences.
You’re tired of dealing with the same problems, day in and day out, with no solutions. You have longed for something more…you desire to live a life of victory.
Does any of this sound like you?
- I’m broke. I’m in debt, and I never have enough money to pay the bills.
- I’m sick all the time, my health is poor, or I’m terminally ill.
- I struggle with constant fear, anxiety and/or depression.
- I’m struggling with an addiction and/or living a lifestyle I know is not God’s will for my life.
- I’m struggling in my marriage or relationships at home or work.
- I have a huge problem, and I do not know how it will ever get solved.
- I feel like my life is going nowhere, and there is no hope for change.
- I have an OK life, but I feel like something’s missing.
- I want to have a better relationship with God.
If any of this describes you, I do know how you feel!
We’ve all been there at some time or another.
BUT I have Good News for you because there is always hope in Jesus and His WORD!
The moment you accepted Christ in to Your life, all the promises of God and the power of God became available to YOU, so you can overcome any situation you will ever face.
Nowhere in the Word Of God tells us to talk or list out our problems rather to Remember All God’s Victories AND THE Blessings we now have access to-
This means life no longer has to be mundane or full of turmoil, but it can be An Adventure, full of the love and peace of God.
At New Creation Jacquelyn and I are committed to help you live a life of victory by teaching you the Principles of Faith found in The WORD of God that, when Believed, will produce real Power, Action and Change in your life.
There’s no hole too deep, no problem too big that God can’t help you with.
He can help you live the life you always dreamed of, and we want to help you overcome every obstacle standing in your way.
As your Pastor and as we come to the end of 2017 The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart and reminded me that I have preached One Hundred and four Messages and sang 832 songs to worship this Past Year so you can Grow in His Amazing Grace!
The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart that it is entirely up to Us to Receive The Word Of God into our Hearts- as the Word says; “Let the Word Of God Dwell in your heart, Let this Mind That was in Christ Jesus be in you”
To see the power of The Promises Of God move in and through you; You have to let God’s New Life Be Released through Faith And Believing at His Word-
This Upcoming Year WILL Be a Prosperous and Glorious 2018 As YOU Embrace The Lord Jesus His Amazing Word-

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” —Luke 2:10-11,
As you celebrate the birth of Christ and look ahead to a New Year, remember the first words the angel shared with the terrified shepherds that first Christmas night: “Fear not.”
We pray the peace and joy of Christ will rule in your heart in this moment and always-

Dear Saint in Christ;
What’s Your Response to Christmas?
The true enjoyment of Christmas is tied to our response to the Christ-child born in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago. When we read the Christmas story from the Bible, there are at least three ways that we can respond to Him.
The innkeeper gave one response when Mary and Joseph wanted to find a safe place where the baby could be born. The innkeeper wasn’t hostile, he wasn’t opposed to them, but his inn was crowded. His hands were full; his mind was preoccupied.
This is the answer that millions of people are giving today. Like the Bethlehem innkeeper, they can’t find room for Christ. Other crowding interests already take up all the accommodations in their hearts. Their response is not atheism. It isn’t defiance. It’s preoccupation and the feeling of being able to get on reasonably well without Christ in their lives.
King Herod gave another response. When the wise men arrived in Jerusalem looking for “the King of the Jews,” Herod appeared to be interested. But afterwards his true response was hostility. “Destroy him!” Herod raged, “Let him die while he is still in his cradle.” In his jealous frenzy, he gave the order to kill every male child in Bethlehem from birth to two (Matthew 2:16), just to make sure the newborn was destroyed!
That hostile response grew and swelled until one day it became a mad mob’s terrifying roar toward Jesus the man: “Let him be crucified! Let him be crucified!” (Matthew 27:22-26).
In many parts of the world, this cry is still being shouted. The world objects to Christ, the unique Son of God, and the Messiah. If he would remain a gentle and mild Jesus, that would be all right. There is no danger there. Or if he were only a mystical dreamer, or if we could put him in a stained-glass window and he would never come down to trouble us…then he would be all right. But a Reigning Christ, a Life-Changing Christ? That is unacceptable to so many people. Such a Christ is a menace to their way of life. It strikes at the roots of their independence from God.
But another response was totally different. It came from an old priest in the temple. When the baby Jesus was brought in to be dedicated to God, Simeon took the child in his arms and said to God, “Now you are letting your servant depart in peace…for my eyes have seen your salvation” (Luke 2:29-30).
Simeon’s answer was the response of Commitment. A very Rare Word these days- He understood God’s intentions in sending His only Son to earth. To Simeon, that meant he couldn’t be complacent, too preoccupied to act on the truth before him. Hostility was the farthest thing from his thoughts. Instead he embraced God’s plan to provide salvation through his Son’s sacrificial death for us.
Have you irrevocably committed yourself to God’s way of salvation as set out in the Word of God? “There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven…by which we must be saved…everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins” (Acts 4:12, 10:43). His life-saving mission was complete when he rose from the dead (Acts 26:23).
Many other ways to God are proposed. But Jesus said, “I am the way…no one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
Are you committed to placing your trust entirely in Christ to receive God’s forgiveness and eternal life in heaven when this life is over? Are you Committed to Christ and His Church?
This is the response I hope you will make this Christmas to God’s greatest gift to all humanity!
A commitment to The Lord Jesus and His blood bought Church- it’s all about being in the right place- His Church; The right people- His Body; And the Right Person- Jesus the Reason For The Season!
Love in His Grace,
Pastor Joe and Jacquelyn Sabolick

You are Called By God to be the Salt and Light of The World!
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
Jesus said that He was the light of the world right after He had told the woman caught in the act of adultery, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”
When she said, “No one, Lord”, He said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” Then, the Bible tells us that “Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I am the light of the world…’” (John 8:10–12)
How wonderful it is to know that when Jesus said, “I am the light of the world,” His light was not to show up the woman’s sin because He had just told her that He did not condemn her.
This tells us that we don’t have to be fearful when we come into God’s presence. He is not there waiting to punish us for our mistakes and failures. His light is not for exposing our sins and shame, or for condemning us. No, His glorious light is for showing us how perfectly His Son’s blood has washed away our sins! That is why Jesus could tell the woman that He did not condemn her—because He would be condemned for her sin as well as ours at the cross.
Jesus’ light unveils the truth that our sins have been completely removed. It reveals how perfect and spotless we are because of Christ’s perfect work at the cross. When you know this, you can go boldly into God’s presence, knowing that you have the light of life that gives you grace and hope!
There are so many people perishing who need to hear His Words of Grace, Love and Mercy-
He has made you His Light!
Love in His Grace,

The first step to victory. Don’t defeat yourself in your own thinking. Get your mind going in the right direction. Seek first The Kingdom Of God and His Righteousness Matt. 6:33
The Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking”, but something inside you flowing out—“righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”.
So to seek first God’s kingdom means to make it a priority every day to have your inner person flowing with righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Righteousness is not your own righteousness based on what you do. It is not good works. It is a gift from Jesus who is your righteousness. (Romans 5:17; 1 Corinthians 1:30) God wants you to be established in the truth that you are the righteousness of God in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
“Peace be with you” Jesus spoke these words to His disciples when He appeared before them after His resurrection. He also showed them His pierced hands and side. (John 20:19–20) God wants you to know that His Son’s finished work has given you peace. Your conscience can be at rest because your sin debt has been settled. You now are at peace with God and have the peace of God.
Joy will come into your heart when you see Jesus in the scriptures, worship songs or anointed preaching. It is the same joy from the Holy Spirit which filled the disciples’ hearts when they saw Jesus, His hands and His side. (John 20:20)
So every day, make it a priority to see yourself righteous in Christ. Don’t be conscious of your sins. Instead, be conscious of your righteousness. And whether you are reading your Bible or listening to anointed preaching, see Jesus with His pierced hands and side, which speak of His finished work. See all your sins forgiven, and you will flow with peace and joy. When you do this, you are seeking the kingdom of God!

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:7
Too many times, we let the fear and restlessness of the unknown hold us back. If you’re going to reach your highest potential, you have to have this boldness to step into the unknown with power and faith- Believing God is Faithful to His Word. You have been made righteous by the Blood of Christ-
The steps of the Righteous are directed and established by the Lord, And He delights in his way and blesses his path. Ps. 37:23
You don’t have to struggle for favor. Just release it by speaking forth God’s Word in faith. On your way to work, say, “God’s favor surrounds me as with a shield.” (Psalm 5:12)
As you continue to speak God’s favor over your life out of a revelation of Jesus’ finished work, you will see more of His Power being released in You-

Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the Fruit of our lips, Giving Thanks to His Name.
Lifting up your hands and thanking God is spontaneous when you’ve just received a wonderful blessing-
But there are times when you don’t feel like lifting up your hands to thank and praise God, yet we are called to do it.
Maybe you have felt discouraged lately. Perhaps it looks as though everything is going wrong for you and you feel like your life is a mess.
First of all let me remind you That God is with you!
Secondly, the best thing you can do is make a conscious decision to lift your hands and thank God for being with you in whatever situation you might be faced with-
Release begins when you open your mouth and begin to praise Him- even though you really don’t feel like doing it.
In the midst of any situation you are going through, praise Him that He is your righteousness! In spite of all the mistakes you have ever made. Thank Him that He is your Prince of Peace, and that His peace will arise in you and still the storms in your life.
God is blessed and appreciates such times when, despite feeling discouraged, you offer a Freewill Thanksgiving Offering to Him.
When you choose to thank God for His unfailing love, His faithfulness to deliver, His Power to protect and provide; even when you don’t see the blessings yet, before long you will find yourself experiencing and enjoying the blessings!
So lift your hands and praise the Lord, for He is good, and His mercy endures forever!

It’s easy to focus on the negative, what’s wrong, what’s not measuring up to a standard you have set in your mind. That’s where many get stuck! Being a New Creation is also being in a New Outlook- Seeing that God has made all things new & beautiful concerning you and your life! Start Thinking about All the things that are right!
It starts with making a New Creation Choice- Our New Mindset is;
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Stop looking at all the negative things that may be surrounding you, and start confessing that nothing is impossible with God.

In the dark times, when life feels unfair, we have to remember that God is still in control and We have the Power to remain in Victory.
In Matthew 24:12, Jesus said this: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” He said this would be a characteristic of the end times. Jesus was saying that the negative things going on around us—not necessarily in us—would cause the love of many to grow cold.
The word “waxed” used in that scripture is really significant. It goes back to the way candles are made. A wick is dipped into hot wax and then taken out and allowed to cool for a few seconds, leaving a thin layer of wax. The process is repeated hundreds of times until the wick is buried deep within the wax.
The same is true with the heart. If we take our eyes off Jesus and focus on the evil of this world and our circumstances, then, little by little, the layers of negativity harden around our hearts, and the love for God and others waxes cold.
So, how do we stay positive in a negative world? Joshua 1:9 Says; Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Here, the Lord was speaking to Joshua, who was taking over for Moses—a hard act to follow. He told Joshua to be strong and of good courage and not to be afraid or dismayed. These are opposing forces. If you are afraid and dismayed, then you are not strong and of good courage. They counteract each other. So, you have to do two things and resist two things.
The Lord doesn’t automatically do these things for you—He flows through you. If you get discouraged or dismayed, You stop the process.
It says in Ephesians 3:20,
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
The phrase “according to” means in proportion to or to the degree of the power that is working in you. God flows through His people. If you become discouraged, you stop the flow of God’s power. God has called you to encourage yourself in the Power of The Holy Spirit that Dwells In You. Believe God at His word and be powerful and encouraged in your New Creation.
