Great Manifestations and Blessings to you and your family as you celebrate the season of FULFILLMENT celebrating the birth of our Salvation, Jesus Christ. Galatians 4:4, “But when the fullness of the time was come , God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the Law, to redeem them who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”  

The birth of Jesus marks the beginning and the ending of a time designated by God that would bring salvation to all that were held captive by those conditions that kept them in bondage, “the people who walked in darkness (bondage) have seen a great light: they who dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them has the light shined.” The end and the beginning of great joy and hope for all people both Jews and Gentiles are found in this Miracle.  Jesus has come to set all people free and fulfill all things promised and prophesied by the prophets before Him, “for unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given:  and the Government shall be upon His Shoulder:  and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6). Through His Divine Power, He will be our protector, provider and enduring force forever. 

 As it were with Simeon (Luke 2:25, 28) waiting for the ministry work of Jesus through the birth of the Son of God, so shall it be with us today that believe, receive and handle the Word of God shall be blessed forever.  For He is God’s Anointed and our Salvation!   

Today and throughout the New Year let us celebrate God’s “set time” for our lives and live in the miraculous anointing that Jesus is the fulfillment of our joy, peace, happiness, success, and all that pertains to godliness! 

Blessings,

Pastor Robert E. Garner

Realign Your Thinking

Posted by admin. Comment (0).

You have entered into a New Year, New and Greater Things! John 14:12, NIV, “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even GREATHER THINGS than these because I am going to the Father.” Jesus was letting his disciples know that while he was on earth, he supplied their need. Now, that he was returning to Heaven, he lets them know that their help will yet come from him but, they would have to become more aware of what’s on the inside, the power of the Holy Spirit that he would send. Therefore, as you step into 2016, know that what you will do will have to be done through the strength of the Holy Spirit. It will happen!

2015 was a great year but, I know that many disagree. However, let me encourage you, YOU ARE STILL HERE! I believe God is saying to you, “I want you to have a life changing experience which will give to you my fullness.” As you seek Him through the workings of the Holy Spirit, you will have full joy, full peace, full deliverance and a full financial breakthrough. Listen to his word, “you may ask me for anything in my name and I will do it” (John 14:14, NIV). Therefore, praying in accordance with all that He is will bring to you all that He has. He is a giver of all things that are good and He wants you to have them, don’t be afraid to ask.

Thinking is that part of us that creates possibilities, measure potential and creates havoc at the same time if allowed to do so. You must align your thinking with the creative power of the universe that says, “God is good” and not just when you want or need something. It must be a constant thought. Realigning and aligning your thoughts with the Word of God releases an energy that creates substance and brings into manifestation the Miraculous Power of God. Faith becomes possible and a realization of oneness with Christ emerges developing a relationship that grants you your desires (John 14:14, NIV).

My Sisters and Brothers, this is the year of Greater Things achieved as you seek the workings of the Holy Spirit (Zechariah 4:6). The Holy Spirit activated cures diseases, performs mighty miracles, gives breakthroughs in every area of your life, heals relationships, bring families back together and will drive the devil out of any place. Your challenge for 2016 is to: SEEK THE WORKINGS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND REALIGN YOUR THINKING TO THE WORD OF GOD (ROMANS 12:1, 2).

Blessed New Year and Greater Things Are Yours,
Pastor Robert E. Garner

Life Changing Experiences

Posted by admin. Comment (0).

2015 is filled with LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCES which will bring you to a place in your life that you will never again be defeated by the devil. God has a plan, purpose and destiny for your life that is bigger and greater than anything that you have experienced. IT’S LIFE CHANGING! It is already in progress and it is up to you to catch the vision. “See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland” (Isaiah 43:19 NIV). Even Isaiah’s experience was already in progress before King Uzziah died, “In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple” (Isaiah 6:1). Isaiah caught the vision and it was A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE.

As you go forward with expectation and excitement don’t allow the elements of confusion and contradiction to enter into God’s plan, purpose and destiny for your life. Oppositions will come and you will probably make some honest mistakes, but remember it is part of your new life and it’s more about who you are and not what you are and less about what you have done and more about what you can now do for God. God is more concerned about holiness and right doings in your life which will benefit his purpose than anything else that you can do. Isaiah saw himself as being more important than what he had done and God assured him with the “live coal” that the vision that he had seen was true and he had been cleansed. Never doubt what God has done! The “live coal” did not cleanse Isaiah it was a demonstration of God’s Power of Assurance that his experience was true. Your cleansing whether moral or otherwise has already been done through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. You must have the FAITH to believe that it is so. Get ready for your 2015 LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE in every area of your life physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially, financially and spiritually. God has planned it!

The effect of your LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE is going to be far reaching. You are going to be in a better place to do more for the Kingdom of God, Family, and Yourself. Notice Isaiah’s response and how quick it was, “I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me” (Isaiah 6:8). Many things you are going to do are going to be for the first time, but know you have been anointed with GOD’S POWER OF ASSURANCE! That what you are not able to do in the natural God will do with Supernatural Power. Have a Blessed New Year and get ready for your LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCES!!

Dismiss Satan from your life and your personal affairs and never ever again be defeated by him again. God has said again and again that “He is with you and will never forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). “Let us therefore come boldly unto the Throne of Grace that we may OBTAIN Mercy and find Grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). The word obtain gives meaning and assurance that if we approach God, He will give us the gift (Jesus) that would cause us to be established, secured, possessors and winners. The Word also states in Psalms 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, a present help in trouble.”

In order for believers to be effective and win and remain victorious, they must prove that the transformation of their mind has taken place and is now controlling their thoughts and they are obeying the Word of God. This is essential because Satan is a master of deception by appealing to the body (flesh) than any other place starting with the mind causing the believer conflict in their belief. He tries to get the believer to a place or position in their mind that they can’t see no way out, believing whatever they are doing, regardless what, there is no sin in it, believing that God doesn’t like them and if He did, they wouldn’t be going through what they are going through such as sickness, suffering lack, want and other negatives that opposes the will of God or the Word of God. Satan’s convincing thought is, “God is holding back on you” (Genesis 3:5).

This is the biggest lie that has ever been told. God wants you to prosper be in health even as you prosper in the Spirit of His Word.

The believer must be reminded on a daily basis of what has already taken place on Calvary. Victory was won, completely and Satan is DEFEATED! The believer must keep Satan away from their mind by focusing and feeding on the Word of God daily. “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11). Satan loses control when your thoughts are God centered. “Man shall not live by bread alone (the natural things of life), but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4).

God wants your life to shine in a dark world and He empowers you to do so through the Power of His Word. Let God refresh you today by breathing upon you and your thoughts with the Spirit of His Word so that you can speak them over your life, your family, and your circumstances. Then, Wait and Watch things change!

Extreme Situations

Posted by admin. Comment (0).

This is the time of the year that leads to a lots of emotional stresses which leads to being uncomfortable with life, especially with such that you have. It is also the time of the year that focuses on being thankful and giving more than any other time of the year which creates problems for many of us.

It’s hard to be thankful for that which you only can wish for and you cannot give that which you only desire to give. There is a bright side to all of this, Being Thankful in Extreme Situations and Giving the Love of God. David states, “I will bless the Lord at all times His praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Psalms 34:1).

What David is doing and asking us to do is to release our Faith and Expose the Power of God. When you express thanksgiving and praises, you let go of that side of you that wants to keep you angry, upset, complaining and magnifying existing negative situations. Therefore, when you give thanks and praise in spite of circumstances, especially extreme circumstances victory comes!

Also, as you are thankful for the small blessings, which are your seeds for a bigger and greater harvest. In other words, through your thankfulness and praise, God will multiply the seed of “small things.” He multiplied the two fish and five loaves and feed a multitude and the grain of mustard seed became mighty. Be thankful for what you have, give God praise and you will begin to multiply.

My Sisters and Brothers, there is very little hope or deliverance in thinking that you are the poorest person in the world or the worse person on earth or there is no one living like you are living. Your victory is in your praise as you look unto Jesus. Psalms 34:4, states, “I sought the Lord and He heard me and delivered me from all my fears.” It will happen for you in a mighty way as you put your trust Him!

What is your extreme situation today? Maybe, you are lacking in finances, illness, lost of a loved one, family issues, employment, family crisis do as Jesus did when He approached the grave of Lazarus and gave thanks. God did the miraculous raising Lazarus to a new standard of life. He wants to do the same for you today. The little that you have will be multiplied into more than you ever thought that you would ever have on tomorrow.

Psalms 34:8, states, “O taste and see that the Lord is good.” He wants you to dive in and make it yours. Our senses help us to understand and our eyes help us to see, but you will never know the sweetness of honey until you taste it! Give Thanks to God and His Love to others, you will never be defeated and began to count your blessings of multiplication. Enjoy this Thanksgiving Season and a Blessed Christmas filled with His joy.

It Is So and So It Is!
Pastor Robert E. Garner

Romans 1:16, states, For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the POWER of God unto salvation to every one who believes; to the Jew First and also to the Greek.

Paul makes his relationship and commitment to God of personal affect demonstrating his present attitude toward Christ. By doing so, he lets his audience know that his testimony is of what God has already done and the Preaching of the Gospel exposes Christ for who He is and what He has done through His death, burial and resurrection.

Therefore, the preaching of the Gospel must not be confounded with human wisdom otherwise, it loses its essential power. Human wisdom deals primarily with reasoning and has its place but, the Gospel deals with revelation through the Power of the Holy Spirit. It is what gets you through hard times!

Paul states, “and I brethren when I came to you came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom declaring unto you the testimony of God. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in the demonstration of the Spirit and of Power, that your Faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the Power of God” (1 Corinthians 2:1; 4, 5).

Paul was advocating that Faith in the spoken Word of Christ has its own philosophy and is the basis for Salvation and Transformation in the life of the believer. The Word of God is the answer for the need of man. It is the demonstration and revelation of God in the life of believers.

“But, seek you first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). Philippians 4:19, states, “but my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.”

Therefore, the focus of preaching, praise and worship should be to give Glory to God and not seeking how you can get your need met. God will meet your need if only you would give Him the Glory and Praise. God will always give you the assurance that you need through the revelation of His Word. There is a Word for today’s problem and a fix for that which has troubled you over a long period of time and it comes from hearing the Word of God.

Seek more of His Word on a daily basis and give Him Glory for what He has already done and you will find the answers that you need. Psalms 34:1, I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Vs. 19, states, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.”

Have Faith in the Preached Word and the Word will fulfill your need! Remember, your worship should be about giving Glory to God and not what you want or need. Your needs are supplied as you seek His Glory!

KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THE PREACHER TO PREACH THE GOSPEL THEREIN IS THE REVELATION OF GOD. BE HEALED DELIVERED TRANSFORMED AND SET FREE!

It’s Restoration Now!

Posted by admin. Comment (0).

Praise God, it’s the New Year (2013) and all things are yours!  This is the year of RESTORATION NOW!  I am believing God to destroy every hindering force off your life and a powerful anointing will come upon you giving you freedom in your health, finances, relationships and all that concerns you.  It is the year of new discoveries, transformation, change, and great breakthroughs.  God has made plans for you to be fully and properly blessed in 2013. He has not planned any defeats.  You will be strong and able to stand fast against the power that would stand between you and what God has planned for you.  Don’t give up, it’s coming.

It may be that the enemy of your blessing is messing with you as he did Daniel when he sought the Lord and the prince withstood the blessing, but God delivered, “then said he unto me, fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand and to chasten thyself before thy God they words were heard and I am come for thy words.  But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days….” (Daniel 10:12, 13).

The Enemy is Messing with you.  Don’t give up, it’s coming!  Don’t look for alternatives.  That’s what the enemy wants you to do.  Don’t worry about the battles because without them you will not be able to go to the next level.  You will have what God promised and what you say.

Notice what God said to Daniel, “thy words were heard and I am come for thy words.” Mark 11:23, “For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

Look beyond your circumstances and fill your heart and mind with GREAT EXPECTATIONS and ask yourself, “am I ready for a miracle?”  Thy words will be heard and fulfilled accordingly.  The promise is yours and the plan is already in effect, “be glad then ye children of Zion and rejoice in the Lord your God for he hath given you the former rain moderately and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain in the first month (I am believing literally, January 2013, Glory!).

And the floors shall be full of wheat and the vats shall overflow with wine (you will get your joy back) and oil (a powerful anointing will come upon you).  And I will restore (give back more) to you the years (nothing is lost when God takes over) that the locust hast eaten, the cankerworm and the caterpillar and the palmerworm…” (Joel 2:23, 24, 25).

This is the time for you to look forward to your future to a time when God will do a new work and His Glory will return to where you are.  It’s RESTORATION NOW!  BELIEVE IT, IT’S YOURS!  Shout, GLORY!

It Ain’t All Bad

“Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.  For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.  Trust in the Lord, and do good, so shall you dwell in the land, and verily you shall be fed.  Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”
– Psalms 37:1-4

What a Mighty Promise!  Don’t spend a lot of time worrying and comparing yourself with the enemy. You are not in competition with the enemy. Empower yourself to hold on to what God has promised by holding on to His Word of Promise. Remembering, the Victory has already been WON.

Don’t let the enemies of God cause you to change your course by searching for alternatives. There are no alternatives when God speaks and directs. Jehoshaphat confessed, “for  we have no might against this great company that come against us, neither we know what to do, but our eyes are upon you” (2 Chronicles 20:12).  Then the Lord spoke, “the battle is not yours” (2 Chronicles 20:15), “you shall not need to fight in this battle.” (2 Chronicles 20:17).

Yet, God told them they had to face their enemies, but they had received the confidence and assurance to do so. They are now singing and rejoicing knowing that God will do it. Jehoshaphat FEARS drove him to seek the Lord bringing the whole of Israel together building a relationship with God through prayer and fasting which moved the hand of God.  IT AIN’T ALL BAD!

My Sisters and Brothers change the way you do battle by putting your trust in God and God will always lead you to Victory.  Don’t let go when things seem to be “bad” or not working in your favor, you can and will WIN!  Victory comes when you hear and trust God for THERE IS A POWER THAT’S NOT INTIMIDATED BY YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES.  Believe it, receive it and make it yours!

IT AIN’T ALL BAD!

Plead Your Case

Posted by admin. Comment (0).

“Put me in remembrance, let us plead together: declare thou, that you may be justified” (Isaiah 43:26).

Plead your case before the Lord, He will listen. He is not going to judge you, but justify you. It is His desire that you come to the knowledge of the Truth that He has come to save and not condemn.

Free yourself from guilt and “hell power thoughts” that have put you in bondage one way or the other. God loves you and He is giving you the opportunity to stand before Him and make your case.

What is your case?

What is your defense?

Don’t make excuses. The most powerful defense that anyone has is that Christ died on the Cross and His death burial and resurrection guarantees anyone who would come to Him new life. Let Him know that He is your Righteousness and that last Miracle He performed in your life was the fruit of His Grace and His Love.

There is no need to make your case based on failure, what ifs, why you didn’t do this or that, why you don’t pay your tithe or give offerings to support His Kingdom and such that would make you feel unworthy of what He has done.

Mark 5:27, “When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind and touched His garment.” This woman knew she would not get an audience with Jesus, but she was determined to be healed. So, “she said, if I may touch His clothes, I shall be whole.”

She made her case based upon her Faith. She “came in the press behind” avoiding being noticed. She had the confidence that Jesus could and would heal her, but she was struggling with her unworthiness. It is not you who makes you worthy, its Christ. Approach Him just as you are and make your case. He died for you .“How shall he not with Him also freely give you all things” (Romans 8:32).

The New Year is upon you don’t allow another day to go by feeling that you have been left out of the scheme of God’s plan for His People. You are at the center of His thoughts, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11).

This is God’s year of Great demonstrations of Power and Deliverance. This is your year of Promised Prophecy Fulfilled. If He has promised and you are yet waiting, put God in remembrance. “God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that he should repent; has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken and shall He not make it good” (Numbers 23:19).

As did Isaiah for Israel, I see new things happening in your life in this year right where you are! Whatever the promise is, He will fulfill and it shall happen just as He said. Put God in remembrance and become a receiver. “And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as He had Spoken” (Genesis 21:1).

It is your time for you to step into God’s Prophetic Purpose.

Your Salvation, your Deliverance and your victories in life are not philosophical, but genuine experiences that actually took place in your life. You know and so do others, it did happen. You know it did! It was not by chance of luck or intense struggle on your part and you finally succeeded.

Look around you, there are others who suffered in like manner, but their outcome was different. Life may have been difficult, tough times took their course, the enemies of your Faith thought they had you, but you got away and you are still here. These are victories that you should be boasting about rather than talking about what could have happened.

Your victories are a direct result of your experience with God and His Favor upon your life. Make this day special and find something that you know that God has done for you and boast about it.

Moses said to Israel, “And you shall show your son in that day, saying, this is done because of that which the Lord did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt” (Exodus 13:8).

Your breakthrough was not due to manipulation on your part, your own ingenuity, or a direct result of others helping you, which is always a good thing to have, but behind the scene of it all was a Power that was not your own.

“For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed” (Malachi 3:6).

The Apostle Paul states, “in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. I am persuaded that nothing shall be able to separate us from the Love of God, which is in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 37, 38).

What God has done demands you to boast about it. I believe the believer can walk in victory every day. Because of His promises made and what He has done through the finished work on Calvary, I believe the believer can walk in continuing victory. Receive it and Boast! Let others know about it and who really did it.
