DON'T PASS THEM BY SERIES; "AN INVITATION TO LIVING WATER "




Scripture:



John 4:14

"But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (ESV)




John 3:5-8

Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at my saying, You must be born again. The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”(NIV)


Hebrews 9:27


"And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment."(ESV)



YOU CAN LEAD THEM TO "LIVING WATER" BUT, IT'S UP TO THEM TO TAKE A "DRINK."  



Her name was "Faye", she was a tenant of the Condominiums where I was the brief assistant manager. Each month, Faye would come into the office to pay her rent, and every time I would giver her the receipt and she would leave and I went on with my daily work routine. But, this particular time, Faye came into the office and asked me if I knew the Lord. So being very eager to share my faith I shared with her about salvation and invited her to my home church. At first, she was very reluctant, however, with encouragement she came to church with me. And, at her request, I conducted mini bible studies with her and did a Q&A on salvation and the bible. 

Now, this went on for about three months and every day, I made progress with her hoping to win her over to the Lord. You see, she was hurt by clergy and I wanted to win her confidence. I wanted to show her love and acceptance and also, show her that we in the Lord don't bite!

Now, we are in the month of March, and Faye asked me to help her say the "prayer of faith". So, eager as I was, I gleefully led her to the Lord. I was so elated because I knew this girl had a hard life and salvation would be the key to her success in living a better life.  However, it was her past that we both had to fight. On her end, she had to let go of the demons generational curses that had held her back, and for me, the fight was to do warfare prayer and encourage her to stay with the Lord. 

In April, Faye's boyfriend came to live with her after his release from prison. This is where the enemy tried to seduce her back to her old world. However, being the fighter and prayer warrior that I am, I was not afraid of this felon neither the men that came over to visit him at the condo. So, I continued to encourage her to stay with the Lord in spite of his threats of harm to her and me. By the way, I didn't tell my husband the extent of the threats from this guy. However, this guy saw how big my husband was and my husband is a force to reckon with, so, I didn't fear. I had my Father in heaven, I had the power of the Holy Spirit, my protection angels and, I had my husband's bulk. I wasn't fearing for nobody! And yes, I tried to get her to leave this violent man on numerous occasions, but to no avail, she stayed. 

Later on, I found out that she was three months pregnant with his baby and he threatened to kill her if she had left him. So, I continued on being there for her and taking her to church whenever she wanted to go, which, was becoming less and less. 

One day, at the prompting of the Lord, I went to Faye's condo. At first, Faye was reluctant to open the door, so I knew that man was in there and preventing her from speaking with me. So, praying in the Holy Spirit under my breath, the devil finally let her go and she opened the door. I didn't go in, however, I did encourage her to come out to speak with me which, she did. At this time, I knew she was in danger. I told her if she needed shelter, for her to come to my place and I would make sure that she would get the help and asylum that she needed, that I had resources for her to help her.  

Every day, I went through this routine with her; coax her outside and talk to her, encourage her to come to church with me and wait on Sunday morning for her to come. And, no Faye.

But, this particular Sunday, which was Palm Sunday, Faye decided to come to church with me. I felt so elated! My thought was, "The devil is defeated and I won't let him have the upper hand on this child; Devil, take your hands off her!"

So, here we are in church, and my bishop had this sermon that I knew that my fears were about to become a dreaded reality. You see, I had a vision that Faye was not going to be here too long on this earth, and the urgency was to make sure that her salvation was cemented in our Lord and Savior Jesus. At first, I tried to fight these thoughts, but, now I know, that it was the Lord showing me that he wanted her saved before she left this earth.


Here,  we are in church on Palm Sunday. Bishop's message was on the acceptance of  Jesus before it's too late. One thing that still sticks in my memory, was the statement that Bishop said, "There are some of you that may not make it to the end of this week, You need to accept Jesus Christ, for some of you played around too long with God, and you need to accept Him before it's too late; For some of you, you will not make it to Easter." Well, my heart leaped in fear for Faye. I stood there praying in the Holy Spirit as if He was going to move her feet to run down to the alter and cement her salvation. But, that didn't happen. Faye just stood there next to me and stayed quiet the entire time. My thoughts were to grab her by her arm and drag her to the altar like she was my child. I wanted her to live! 

So, here I am, praying in the Holy Spirit that Faye would go down to the front and confirm her salvation, but, that never happened. And, I felt so sick inside, because I knew this was her last time to accept the invitation. 

Easter eve is here,  and my husband was at work and I was getting ready for Easter day. Around midnight, I got a knock on my door, it was a police officer. He asked me if I was the manager on site, and I told him, "yes." Well, nothing was going to prepare me for what was ahead.

The police officer told me that there was a young woman that was three months pregnant and that she was fatally shot three times and was pronounced dead at the scene along with her boyfriend. I went down to where her body was and the police would not allow me near the crime scene but, the police officer told me that her body was in the doorway she looked like she was trying to escape. 

I blamed myself for months for not getting to her in time. I didn't know that the calls that were cutting off my dial-up connection was Faye. In the late 1990's, we had dial-up and I was on the computer. If anyone who have knowledge about dialups, they will disconnect when the phone rings, especially, when you only have one line.  And, my phone kept ringing, and I didn't want to answer it, I was in the middle of working on my computer. 

For many months I carried the guilt of "if only." I sank into a deep depression, I walked around in a mental fog filled with guilt, fear that I failed God. I played everything in my head like a record. Over and over trying to find ways of how I could have prevented this young woman from leaving this earth. It took a toll on my mental well-being. But, you know the great thing about our Lord and Savior? He will get you out of anything even when you don't have the mental strength to fight. The Lord showed me, not only he was protecting me and my three small children, ages 18 months, 5 and 6 years from this man who was shooting at anyone who was in contact with Faye, but, he gave Faye an invitation to salvation and resources to get out of her situation. Sadly, Faye chose to stay in her situation. 

She told me once, that she loved this man, and that they can build a life together. And, I told Faye if she stayed with this man that she won't have a life. It took a while, but eventually, I healed from this ordeal and now I am sharing this story with you.


What I would love for all of you to gain from this story....

1) Work to build their trust and give the invitation to salvation
2) Prayerfully lead as the Lord leads you.
3) Don't ever put yourself and your family in danger. God never places us in risky situations to bring harm to ourselves and our families. But, know that he will protect you if you find yourself there.
4) After the invitation, if that person never decides to commit themselves to Jesus Christ, know that you are loving and caring enough to want them to be in the Body of Christ. You gave your best to get them saved!
5) Know that you have done all that you could do within the power of God that he allowed you to do. Your obedience to the Lord to bring that soul to Him will not go unnoticed by Him.


KEEP SHARING AND LOVING THEM TO THE LORD OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!






For those who don't know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I invite you into knowing Him. (Romans 10:9-14)

Prayer: Lord, Please forgive me of my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me by your blood that was shed for me on the cross. Today, I renounce satan and all of my sins and decide to walk in your presence and power. Thank you, Father, for loving me and accepting me into your kingdom. In Jesus name, amen!

Now, once when you have prayed this prayer. I encourage you to purchase a bible, find a good church home and join a good bible study group. I encourage you to start with the book of Matthew and continue on. (Starter scriptures: Isaiah 43:25-26; 44:6-8; Isaiah 53; John 1)

Congratulations on your new birth! God blesses you!


Blessings,

"DON'T PASS THEM BY"



Scripture:

Isaiah 58:10 


"And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday."


Deuteronomy 15:11 


"For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land."


Proverbs 14:21 

"He that despiseth his neighbor sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he."




Experiences Do Matter!


Over a series of my blogs, you will see an on-going theme for awhile. The Lord has directed me and I will do exactly what he asks. SO PLEASE BEAR WITH ME!




I have been saved for over 35 years, and for the most of my walk in the Lord, I have experienced and seen a lot, like the most of you. However, I would like to share some of my experiences with you as per direction from the Lord.

This morning, the Lord put in my remembrance of an experience that I had when I was very young in Him. When I look back on this experience, I see that I was a trainee of His, and unknowingly, He was training me for what I am doing today...



ISN'T IT GREAT, THAT GOD'S TRAINING SESSIONS ARE NOT JUST ONE TIME IN YOUR LIFE, BUT IT'S A NEVER ENDING, NEVER CEASING, SCHOOL ROOM OF VALUABLE LESSONS, THAT CAN NEVER BE TAUGHT BY A HUMAN BEING. IT HAS TO BE "HOLY SPIRIT" TAUGHT, ONLY!




When I was nineteen-years-old, I was staying with my sister in Piscataway, New Jersey for the summer. One day, she and I decided to go to take the train to New York City. We ended up on 42nd street right in the middle of Times Square and right down the street from Central Park. Just as you walked past of most of the theaters, you came up to a hotel. At the time, I didn't know what a "relief hotel" was, and I needed to use the restroom. You see, some of the businesses there wouldn't allow you to use their facilities unless you were their patrons. So, I was desperate! My sister and I departed for a moment as I went into this building. Really, I didn't know what I was going into, however, I can tell you if you are part of my generation, think of the shows,"Hillstreet Blues or Baretta." When I was inside of the lobby of this building, it reeked of urine, feces and the "trash", well, a landfill could not compete!

I remember, I just stood there is disbelief! I couldn't wrap my head around what I was seeing. But, one thing I knew, that there were people living in the midst of the filth inside of this building and my heart went out to them. At the time I wished I was a millionaire, my thought was, "I would buy this building from this slumlord, and renovate it and place these people in a better environment." 

However, the reality was, I had no money, and was just on the cusp of going to college and didn't know anyone who had funds like that. 

I remember, just standing there when a young woman just my age came out of her apartment. She came up to me and asked me was I visiting someone there. I told her, "no", I needed to use the restroom and didn't see a public toilet in the lobby. The young lady was sweet enough to allow me to enter into her apartment to use her bathroom. But, I was not prepared for what I was about to see...

Mind you, it was in the middle of January, and we were just out of a snow storm. Everything was melting. However, as I walked into this apartment, it was filthy with trash all around and the window was open. It was dark and freezing. Over to the left of the room, I saw a tiny figure, it was a toddler, no older than three years old. This baby, only had on a very soiled diaper, with no shirt and bare feet. You know, I did forget to use the bathroom for a moment, because my attention was on that child. I picked him up and held him inside of my coat. You know, I did become angry at the mother, but I didn't say anything to her. I put the toddler down and went inside of her bathroom. There, well, she used the tub for a sink and the toilet, well, we won't go there! But, I can tell you, I didn't want to embarrass her, and I used it. Afterward, I talked with her and gave her my phone number and I gave her my last piece of money I had in my pocket to buy the toddler diapers. I was trying not to cry, I knew that baby was in harm's way. For the helplessness I felt, the only thing I could offer more for her is to witness about the Lord, give her my phone number and give her money. I still felt hopeless and powerless to help this woman. 

When I came out of this building, my sister was standing right outside of the door. She yelled at me. She explained to me about what a "relief hotel" was and that I was talking to an addict and I put myself in danger of being harmed. Could she make me feel any worse?! 

I was angry at myself because I wanted to help more. I wanted to take that baby and place him in better care. All I could do is to remember the address and call social services. Mind you, not to undermine the mother but, to help them both. This is all I could do with the limited resources that I had at the time. But, I prayed a lot for this child and mother. Even so much more for the child, because that child was the future. Do you know, that child would be 33 years old today? 

I don't know the fate of that child, but, I know a GOD that heard my heart's cry at a second of a heartbeat. I know a GOD, that saw the tears of that child and the demon of addiction that plagued that mother and HE does deliver and HE does send help even when my prayers seem like they won't move, THEY DO!

If any of you have experienced anything like this, I want to encourage you when you think you have nothing to give, YOU DO! 

GOD is JEHOVA JIREH, OUR PROVIDER! HE is the BREATH in our prayers! HE is the DELIVER that can dispatch angels all around the person that we send an incense of PRAYER up to HIM. 


USE WHAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR HANDS, AND DON'T BE ASHAMED OF WHAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE! REMEMBER, JESUS IS IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL!



Blessings in ALL that you lay your hands to for the Lord Jesus today!






For those who don't know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I invite you into knowing Him. (Romans 10:9-14)

Prayer: Lord, Please forgive me of my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me by your blood that was shed for me on the cross. Today, I renounce satan and all of my sins and decide to walk in your presence and power. Thank you, Father, for loving me and accepting me into your kingdom. In Jesus name, amen!

"WE ARE NOT MEASURED BY SCALES"


Scripture: 


2 Corinthians 10:12

For we dare not make ourselves of the number or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. (KJV)




Comparing yourself to someone's spiritual walk is a dangerous thing to do...



In this journey called "life", we all have scales that we measure ourselves with. Sometimes we create a scale based on some else's testimony, thinking that our situation may come out as the same. However, no one gives the entire story to the other, and no two situations are alike. 

Sometimes our scales can be all about the "looks." Comparing ourselves with someone else we deem more "godly" than us. "If I just change the way I dress" or "If I can quote more scripture or  praise more, that'll show 'em, I am a godly woman or man." However, you will fail with this type of mindset,  because we praise the Lord with our hearts, not with our minds. And, what might appear to be one thing, just maybe another. Be careful! The devil loves to deceive.

Sometimes our scales hinder God's creative flow in us. We judge our ministries based on what we see with our brethren. "Why can't my ministry flourish like them?" "How come my ministry is so slow in getting started?" Have you ever thought that God wants to use your creative flow to be different to move a certain sect of people? There is no room for comparison here. Enjoy learning what godly gifts that flow from you and keep it moving!

And for some of us, our scales don't move because of that donut we ate last night!

So, in all that I would like to articulate to you today. My encouragement to you is to be YOUR BEAUTIFUL CREATED SELF!


1. Don't base your walk on some else's testimony. You don't know how they got to their "there." Just know that you have your own testimony, and it's how you tell it that makes the difference in some else's life.

2. Don't base your walk or compare yourself to someone's appearance. Remember, it matters of how you "look" to others that make the difference.

3. Don't judge your ministry based on your brother's success. God is not finished with you. We all have our growth spurts and GOD has ALL time and SPACE in HIS HANDS!

4. If your bathroom scale doesn't move, GIVE UP THE DONUTS!😁






For those who don't know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I invite you into knowing Him. (Romans 10:9-14)

Prayer: Lord, Please forgive me of my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me by your blood that was shed for me on the cross. Today, I renounce satan and all of my sins and decide to walk in your presence and power. Thank you, Father, for loving me and accepting me into your kingdom. In Jesus name, amen!

Now, once when you have prayed this prayer. I encourage you to purchase a bible, find a good church home and join a good bible study group. I encourage you to start with the book of Matthew and continue on. (Starter scriptures: Isaiah 43:25-26; 44:6-8; Isaiah 53; John 1)

"CHURCH, DON'T SLEEP, THE DEVIL IS AT PLAY"


I Timothy 6:12

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.


II Timothy 2:14

Keep reminding God's people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen.


Colossians 4:5

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.



I Corinthians 11:18

In the first place, I hear that when you come together as a church, there are divisions among you, and to some extent, I believe it.


I Peter 5:8

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour
.



Definition: Kinship


Kinship: Blood relationship

Hebrew: Adelphoiמוֹדַ֫עַת;  Brother, Sibling, Fellow

Greek: Adelphosσυγγένεια;  A brother, member of the same religious community, especially a fellow-Christian.






My husband and I were driving down Hwy 67 from Waxahachie, Tx, on our way home. As we were approaching the outskirts of Dallas County, you can see from the highway that there is the proximity of 8 miles apart, are three major churches coupled with smaller ones in- between. However, in the news, we still see the drugs, violence and other inherit crimes that plague these areas.


We listen to Heaven 97 here in Arlington, Tx. It's a Christian radio station. Every afternoon, we listen to civic leaders, pastors, lay people and other people of a higher position, discuss, argue, and vent their feelings about their concerns of the violence, crime, and social status of their municipalities. It seems that there is a lot of venting, but, no conclusion to their concerns.


My husband comes from a small rural town in Arkansas where the crime and violence are so high that there is always someone he knows that have died from it. However, when you visit this town, which you can reach the end of it within 10 steps, there is a viable church on every corner. 


When I worked as a computer helpdesk tech, I met so many people on my job from many companies that are Christians. They would argue at lunch with each other, trying to push their point of view of who was right and who was wrong. Me, I wasn't a part of their conversations, however, I would hear the unsaved people tell me that they wouldn't go to their churches.


I've met other saints that attended other churches and based on what their church have taught, they vented their dislike of another church based on what was taught to them. 


This past Sunday, I heard a pastor conveyed the exact sentiment that I am trying to relay today. He is holding a forum in the coming week where he is gathering other leaders to see how we as a church can come together. 


Church, can you see the problem similarities and parallels that are plaguing our witness for Christ...?


CHURCH, come on, we can do better than this!


The devil is lurking to see whom he can devour, believe me, it's not the unsaved!He is looking to dismantle our witness for the Lord and kill every opportunity to bring someone to Jesus Christ. 

Are we going to let him...?

If you disagree with how your brother delivers his message for the Lord, agree that you both are in the Body of Christ and that God is no respecter of persons. (Acts 10:34 & Romans 2:11)


We are in this to win it! Win them to the Lord!


Know that the world is watching us. Know that your conversations with each other and to others need to be ALWAYS seasoned with SALT. (Colossians 4:5)

The world hears every word we say, even when we think that they don't hear.

Church, we need to be awake and sober-minded and vigilant at all costs. 

There is the devil that is on the loose.


BUT, WE ARE THE ARMY OF CHRIST THAT HAS THE POWER OF GOD TO TAKE HIM DOWN!


Don't let this glorious opportunity of saving a soul pass you by. Love one another with compassion. And, stay prayerful for each other. There is a war going on, and IT SHOULD NOT BE THE BRIDE OF OUR LIVING SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST!



So, with this remaining thought...

One of my freelancing jobs, I met a lady that was from another denomination. I felt in my heart that I knew her from somewhere else, however, I found out that she and I never met. The camaraderie that we had with each other was like close-knit family.


It is called Kinship!


Church, we have "kinship" with the King. We need "kinship" with each other. I implore you, my brothers and sisters in our loving Savior Jesus Christ, to not only love a soul today but, to love each other with a heartfelt compassion and camaraderie and KINSHIP  that the Lord our savior blessed us with. And, work fervently to bring those in the forgotten areas to Christ Jesus our Savior!



Shalom     שלום









For those who don't know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I invite you into knowing Him. (Romans 10:9-14)

Prayer: Lord, Please forgive me of my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me by your blood that was shed for me on the cross. Today, I renounce satan and all of my sins and decide to walk in your presence and power. Thank you, Father, for loving me and accepting me into your kingdom. In Jesus name, amen!


Now, once when you have prayed this prayer. I encourage you to purchase a bible, find a good church home and join a good bible study group. I encourage you to start with the book of Matthew and continue on. (Starter scriptures: Isaiah 43:25-26; 44:6-8; Isaiah 53; John 1)

"CREATED BY GOD'S DESIGN"



Ephesians 1:4-6

Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,  to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.


Romans 8:29

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.


Ephesians 2:10

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.


2 Thessalonians 2:13-14

But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 





Definition:

Chose/ Chosen:

Greek (Eklegomai), Hebrew (Bachar); One who, or that which is the object of choice or special favor.


Foreknew:

Greek (Proginōskō); To have previous knowledge of; to know beforehand.


Predestine:

Greek (Prohorizō); To mark out beforehand, to establish one’s boundary, or one’s limits, beforehand.


Create:

Greek (Creatus), Hebrew (Bara); To create is to cause something to exist which did not exist before, as distinguished from make, to re-form something already in existence.






A WORD FROM THE LORD:

I am the one who defines you. Your finesse, character, your entire being came into existence before the foundations of this world. And it is because I called it so....





YOU WERE DESIGNED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS:

Do you know that you are created for such a time as this? Every part of your existence, your personal universe had been intricately designed by Him and only Him with you in mind. For the word of God states, ".We are beautifully and wonderfully made."(Psalm 139:14)

Every sinew, every cell was created, fashioned with a purpose of you in mind to create the most beautiful you that you are!

You are the most beautiful created being on this earth, with talents that God will use for His glory and with that thought. Don't you think that is worth celebrating our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? 




PRAISE HIM! FOR, GOD IS OUR FATHER AND JESUS CHRIST IS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. GO, CELEBRATE GOD, FOR, YOU ARE HIS BEAUTIFUL CREATION. CELEBRATE YOURSELF, FOR, YOU WERE CHOSEN FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. A WONDERFUL CREATION DESIGNED BY GOD HIMSELF. FOR, HE LOVES YOU SO!







For those who don't know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I invite you into knowing Him. (Romans 10:9-14)

Prayer: Lord, Please forgive me of my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me by your blood that was shed for me on the cross. Today, I renounce satan and all of my sins and decide to walk in your presence and power. Thank you, Father, for loving me and accepting me into your kingdom. In Jesus name, amen!


Now, once when you have prayed this prayer. I encourage you to purchase a bible, find a good church home and join a good bible study group. I encourage you to start with the book of Matthew and continue on. (Starter scriptures: Isaiah 43:25-26; 44:6-8; Isaiah 53; John 1)


Congratulations on your new birth! God blesses you!



Blessings,



Pastor D.Williams
