The Best Church Stopper Ever! by Elaine Davenport January 13-20, 2010


I have been obedient in ministering to my brother regarding his salvation; I’ve trusted God. After a few years out of the blue; he called with what I detected was a sense of urgency and said: “I’m going to church with you this coming Sunday.” I said: “Okay.” I was pleased but calm. I called him back and this is what I said to him:

NOW THE ENEMY WILL DO EVERYTHING THAT HE CAN TO KEEP YOU FROM COMING TO CHURCH. THE GREATEST THING THAT HE WILL DO IS TO CONVINCE YOU THAT IT IS YOUR IDEA.

He then said:

I DON”T CARE, I’M COMING.

This went on for 3 weeks. He never came. However, I have great joy because he’s reaching out to God. My prayer is that his spirit man will rise up and take ascendancy.

Yet.

God is faithful and I am patient and the enemy is a defeated foe.

Next, I was recently discipling a friend of mine. She said she really wanted to come to church. Of course when the big day came, I couldn’t find her. I’m patient and I know that she is a child of God and that she will walk in the Blessing and disciple many or satan wouldn’t try so hard to block her destined path.

You may have encountered these problems as well. The enemy picked the wrong people to try to block because I will cover them in prayer and trust God to deliver them.
I have great joy over this and I am in covenant. So no matter what it looks like; Satan can’t steal it.


Romans 10:17 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)

17So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

THE MESSAGE BIBLE GIVES GREAT FOOD FOR THOUGHT WHEN IT SAYS:

14-17But how can people call for help if they don’t know who to trust? And how can they know who to trust if they haven’t heard of the One who can be trusted? And how can they hear if nobody tells them? And how is anyone going to tell them, unless someone is sent to do it? That’s why Scripture exclaims,

A sight to take your breath away.
Grand processions of people
telling all the good things of God.
But not everybody is ready for this, ready to see and hear and act. Isaiah asked what we all ask at one time or another: “Does anyone care, God? Is anyone listening and believing a word of it?” The point is: Before you trust, you have to listen. But unless Christ’s Word is preached, there’s nothing to listen to.

Get Ready To Fight by Tonya McKinney November 15- November 22, 2009

“Getting Ready for the Fight!”

This is a fight. Just like a boxer has to train before a fight. We too have to prepare before the battle for our fight.

We need to fast and pray because some things only come out by fasting and prayer. Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? (Isaiah 58:6)

We have to renew our mind with the Word of God. We need to create in us a clean heart, O God and renew a right spirit within me. We need to present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto you. We must fight the good fight of faith.

You have to protect yourself with the sword of the Spirit and the Blood of Jesus. We have to put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the (punches) wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against the flesh and blood, but against the rulers of the darkness of the world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. (Eph. 6:11-18)

Press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4;14). Praise Him! Sing unto the Lord a new song; for he has done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm has gotten us the victory!!! (Psalm 98:1)

After writing this, I thought that I am already in a fight, but the Lord let me know that it is time to go to another level!

One Day….by Elaine Davenport Friday, September 5, 2008

One day you’re going to find out it’s just you and God,

no one else will do…

This isn’t a joke…it’s a prophecy; that I choose to speak over you,

The bad days behind, the good days ahead, you’ve cast off every weight

You’re moving ahead…

You’ve waisted some time, and now you are feeling some guilt..

but Jesus took that weight and destroyed it when he went up on  up on that hill,

The bible says and it’s very true, that if you’ll repent and give him your life,

he’ll cleanse you from all unrighteousness and move out all of your strife,

See, you’ve got a task to do and God can give you the clues

God wants to you out into all of the land to touch people’s lives and  give them a hand,

To point them to Him and tell of His plan, He just needs you to stand…

And He’s promised you life…at the end of your days, if you’ll just put Him first in every way. He loves you. Won’t you dedicate your life to Him?   SALVATION HERE
