One God & One Standard

Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians 4:3-6, KJV

True Prosperity

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. (St. John 10:10, KJV)

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3 John 1:2, KJV)

According to the Word of God, true prosperity is not of money, but of the soul. Jesus said, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:19-21, KJV) 

Jesus also said, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6:24, KJV) 

Jesus summed it all up concerning true prosperity by saying, “Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:30-34, KJV) 

Can Clean Come Out of Unclean?

Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean?
not one. (Job 14:4, KJV)

Only God can bring out a clean thing from that which is unclean. For example, all of us are born in sin nature, but Jesus Christ was born in the likeness of sinful flesh and wasn’t not born of man, but of God and His nature. Within the Virgin Mary who knew no man, but was begotten of man gave birth to Jesus who knew no sin. This is the evidence of the Faith of God in the earth showing Himself. The answer to the question is yes. God is real and tangible.

Clean Up!

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1, KJV)

As believers of Jesus, we must make sure that we are living everyday in The Lord. When sometimes it seems like we are not getting any where in The Lord is because we are not considering enough of what God would have us to do. Praying, reading the Word, and mediation play major parts in our walk with Him. If these things are not done in our lives, then the only thing that is left is our flesh or carniality that would get us in trouble or hinder us. Therefore, we should deny ourselves of those things that are contrary to our walk with The Lord. This is why we are not seeing some real manifestions of the Holy Spririt in our lives because of the carnality that sits in the way of recieving and hearing from God. Therefore, remember The Lord and stay focus on Him and do His will.
