Stick To Your Faith! April, 2013

 

Do not let anything or anyone knock you off of your faith stance.  You cannot go by what you see or hear.  Just believe God.  You win.  The bible says so!  The devil cannot defeat you!

 

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  John 10: 10

Some years ago, I found out that I had cancer.  I was devastated.  I thank God that my doctor had no bedside manners.  I had no problems leaving him behind.  Now, I do believe in doctors; however I have no problem getting a third opinion.  God has the first as far as I’m concerned.  And I “lightly” regard all after that.

Well, I heard this friend on email say that she could send the light to people and they were healed.  I should have played twenty questions with her to find out what she meant.  I thought it was a life raft and I was up for that.  Well, unfortunately, she got busy and never sent it.  Based on further inquiries; I am doubtful that it would have helped me.  So, I turned to the true source of life…God…Jesus…The Holy Spirit

After the above mentioned experience; I decided I would pray for myself and move closer to God.  In my heart deep down, I knew that I would find the answer there.

You see, the truth about prayer is that it works.  As I have told people over the years…God doesn’t come down and say:  “See, I did it!  I answered your prayers!”  And because of that people easily take Him for granted which is a huge mistake.  That’s walking on a mountain covered with ice with gym shoes.  Think I’ll pass on that approach. 

In developing a prayer life, I became excited to talk and listen as God spoke back into my heart.

The truth about prayer is that it is the one way to bring God on the scene, while speaking to Him and listening to what He has to say.

It’s fun, it is easy, it is serious.   God is so talkative sometimes…I’m amazed!

Merry Christmas From Cafe Sozo! December 25, 2011

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. (Isaiah 7:14)   Old Testament


An angel tells Mary about Jesus In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God.” “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her. (Luke 1:26-38)   New Testament

Oh…The Christmas Story is a miraculous story of a supernatural event that changed people’s lives for generations and hundreds of years and thousands of years.  It marked a season of miracles; it’s truly a miracle season!
Christ the precious little baby grew to be a man of love and compassion; upon whom the Glory of God still does shine. 

Our prayer is that the joy of the Season and the light of God shines upon you and your family as God reveals Himself to you in the coming days like never before and that you allow Him to use you for the purpose for which He hath called you.  For Christ’s sake…Amen.

It’s All About Jesus!

Luke 2

1And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

2(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
