A FATHER’S LEGACY

Posted by on Nov 30, 2018 in Encouragement |

When I was about 8 years old, my father made a bold proclamation over my older brother and I. He said, “The two of you will never accomplish more than I have in your lives.” You see, my father was a womanizer, adulterer, and addicted to gambling, alchohol, cigarettes, food, and many other things. Essentially, he was partnering with the enemy’s heart and cursing us to become less than he was. Cursing us to go from shame to shame instead of glory to glory. Fast forward to age 23, around a year after my salvation, I found John 14:12-14, a statement which contrasted my earthly father’s statement, it read: “I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. Ask me anything in my name, and I will do it for you!” – John 14:12‭-‬14 The Passion Translation (TPT) I recall reading this while sitting in my office at Zin Design Studio, a grassroots design firm I just started a few months earlier, and feeling hope and God’s unconditional love fill my heart. As warm tingly sensations filled my body, electrifying and awakening my heart, I heard God say, “A Father’s desire is for His children to surpass His accomplishments.” Instantly, I knew that my destiny wasn’t limited my my earthly father’s curse but rather my destiny was to receive and fulfill my Heavenly Father’s plans, purposes, future, and legacy He released to us when He spoke the scriptures above. I recall thinking, what have I done to receive such an amazing Father, like God? How can I repay Him for the amazing gifts of forgiveness, redemption, restoration, love, and sacrifice He personally gave to me? The birth, life, persecution, betrayal, punishment, and death of Jesus Christ, was payment for crimes He never committed, however, freely paid for for the sins of whole world, for you and me. His resurrection, oh the power and glorious resurrection, was the greatest miracle He ever performed, as He rose from His grave, He returned, back to us, our dominion over earth. I recall, after reading John 14:13, as a one year old believer, I said, “I must pursue and do all that Christ has done, including the purposes found in Matthew 10:8 and throughout His life.” You see, God has a plan and purpose for each of us. It is written that He personally knew each of us before we were formed in our earthly mother’s womb. Everything Christ did was part of the plan and purpose, which, He...

Angels – 01/07/2018

Posted by on Apr 30, 2018 in Sermon, Videos |

Throughout the bible, God has used angels to accomplish His plans and purposes. None has changed, angels are still being used and many people have encountered angels throughout their lives. From the very moment we are conceived, God assigns each of us angels to watch over us, to guide us, to deliver messages for us, and to hearken to God’s commands through us (Psalms 103:20). Did you know that the angels assigned to you, actually share some of your traits and gifts? That’s right! If you speak to someone’s angel(s), you will surely understand the calling on their life.

Identity Theft – June 11, 2017

Posted by on Jun 11, 2017 in Sermon |

  Has anyone here ever been a victim of identity theft? The truth is, everyone here should all raise our hands because, before Christ, our identities were stolen by the devil in the Garden of Eden. Our identities, both our spiritual and physical, determine: Who we are What we do Who we belong to What belongs to us For those of you who don’t know, last week, we found out that we were victims of identity theft. A person in Tennessee somehow got hold of one of my debit card, called the bank as us, made transfer from our savings account into our debit account, realized that they transferred it to the wrong card, called and moved it from one debit card to another. Once the debit card they had had the funds they needed in it, they made a nice size jewelry purchase online. When Olivia found the missing money from the first transaction, she immediately called me to see if I transferred or withdrew any money recently. Upon learning that I had not, she started clicking through all our accounts to find that a large sum of money was moved, not once, but twice and the worst part was that there was a huge jewelry purchase made, just six hours before the Holy Spirit prompted her to log online, for no reason, and checkout account. Upon assuring Olivia that I didn’t use most of our savings to surprise her with jewelry, we contacted our bank, then the company who the purchase was made from. Luckily, we caught it early enough and got hold of the jewelry store before the order was fulfilled and the director of sales, reversed the order and nothing but our sense of security, was lost. Needless to say, Olivia and I felt violated when we found out about the theft. After all, both of us are very careful with where we use our cards and how we discard of our sensitive items and yet the criminals in Tennessee somehow acquired my card info, and other sensitive information, and made us victims. As followers of Jesus Christ, our identities are priceless, and we need to be willing to do whatever it takes to keep it safe. Too often I see believers settle for being victims of identity theft to the devil, easily handing over what Jesus gave back to us, our rightful place as kings and priests of the earth. Before the fall of man, there was another fall, the fall of Lucifer and one third of every angel ever created out of Heaven. In one swift blow, the angelic beings were throwing out of Heaven, lost their identities and the angels and became the first minions. In Luke 10:18, Jesus said, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” The fall of Lucifer, was a violent one. Ever since the fall of Lucifer, and...
