HOPE TO VICTORY
HOPE TO VICTORY
God is Sovereign. He can do whatever He pleases. Nobody can stop Him. We cannot discern His thoughts unless He declares it. He is a Just God with plans and purpose. With an open Bible, let’s ask God to open His revelations.
There is always exclusivity given to Your children and we are honored, Holy and Reverend God, the Creator of the Universe we subject ourselves to You. Teach us Your will. Give us understanding as the Holy Spirit teach us. Let no doubt deter Your Holy purpose in us. Keep us awake every minute as we listen to Your Message. God may I deliver Your Message not with my thoughts and capacity but Your will. Lead me Lord. Forgive our iniquities as we forgive others, protect us. With thanksgiving we pray. In Jesus Name. Amen.
^^^ As believers we trust God Sovereignty and Love.
^^^ Take our present situation (Virus) as an opportunity lead others to Christ.
^^^ The Virus is not the problem, the problem for every person is death.
^^^ Jesus conquered death and He only can give eternal life, One day only one reality we will all agree…Death.
^^^ What do we when we are alive?
REJOICE IN HOPE
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; 11 not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, 13 contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality. ROM 12:9-13
^^^ Every day is one step closer to death and only Faith of Christ reciprocated Faith in Christ can save us from Gods’ final judgment.
^^^ Our responsibility now is to lead at least one person to Christ.
TODAY THERE IS VIRAL PANIC
1) USE COMMON SENSE
^^^ Believe only facts, not everybody knows. Find out the truth. Follow those who govern. Let God be God. Prayers will awaken our minds in the wisdom of the Lord.
MAINTAIN GOOD MORALS
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
***Medical advise us to wash your hands, take your time doing it, Avoid touching your face, having mask is not helpful unless you're sick. Be realistic, use common sense. Ask God for wisdom.
*** There was a rumor that there will be a second attack of this virus after summer. It may be true, I have to find out.
*** Be wise, Jesus is more powerful than all these. Use the opportunity to lead Christ to others.

Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. ISAIAH 40:28
GOD IS HIGH LIFTED UP
For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” JOSHUA 1:9
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations DEUT 7:9
^^^ Now we know who we are serving. He gave us Believers a gift to overcome.
***Our conversation is Peace. Declaration of Jesus as Lord with our mouth and believing the Father resurrected Him is salvation. ROM 10:9-10
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. PHIL 4:8
BE IN A MISSION IN CHRIST
Jesus called his twelve apostles together. He gave them power to heal sicknesses and power to force demons out of people. 2 He sent them to tell about God’s kingdom and to heal the sick. 3 He said to them, “When you travel, don’t take a walking stick. Also, don’t carry a bag, food, or money. Take for your trip only the clothes you are wearing. 4 When you go into a house, stay there until it is time to leave. 5 If the people in the town will not welcome you, go outside the town and shake the dust off your feet as a warning to them. LUKE 9:1-5
And He said to them, "When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?" They said, "No, nothing.” LUKE 22:35
HE WILL PROVIDE ANSWERS
When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not worry about how or what you are to speak in your defense, or what you are to say; 12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” LUKE 12:11-12
IT IS I…
Immediately He [a]made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away.
23 After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone.
24 But the boat was already [b]a long distance from the land, battered by the waves; for the wind was [d]contrary. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea.
26 When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out [f]in fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”
28 Peter said to Him, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” 29 And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” 31 Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and *said to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 When they got into the boat, the wind stopped. 33 And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “You are certainly God’s Son!” MAT 14:22-33
WE HAVE JESUS!!!
HIS GRACE AND THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT… NEVER BE AFRAID.
^^^ In our situation today, use 1) Common sense, be practical, 2) Pray without ceasing 3) Tell everybody what God can do in Christ.
^^^ Never be afraid, “Jesus will never leave your nor forsake you.” Remember what He did in the sea of Galilee, controlling the storm, walking in water. He is the Son of God. Be at peace with Him.
