God wants your ALL ! June 20, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Pastors Rick & Carol Mora @ 8:15 am

Good Morning my Friends,

This week has been a reminder to me that we are all a work in process, we haven’t reached the destination of Pure Holiness, but are we are the Pathway that will lead to it? I woke up this morning with many scriptures coming to my mind and the Lord speaking to me saying “I want your ALL”

  • Deuteronomy 11:13 (Whole Chapter)
    And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
  • God is requiring a  TOTAL COMMITTMENT, even as we look at these scriptures in the old testament, God is a jealous God, he does not what your affections split between Him and anyone else. He wants you to LOVE him and SERVE him will ALL you have!!!

  • Deuteronomy 13:3 (Whole Chapter)
    Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
  • God will prove us or test us to see where our heart is… to see if you love him with all your heart and all your soul

  •  Joshua 22:5 (Whole Chapter)
    But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.
  •  
    1 Samuel 7:3 (Whole Chapter)
    And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, saying, If ye do return unto the LORD with all your hearts, then put away the strange gods and Ashtaroth from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the LORD, and serve him only: and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.

    When we examine our hearts and God shows us we are amiss in any area, we need to return to Him with our whole hearts and repent and do it his way, HIS WAY is to serve HIM ONLY. Lets look at our lives today and see what we are serving…. Are we serving ourselves, our own desires and wants or are we Truly letting Him be LORD of ALL?
    When you are truly doing it his way then He delivers you from the hands of the wicked. Those things in your life that are trying to kill, steal and destroy you.

    Jeremiah 29:13 (Whole Chapter)
    And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 

    On Thursday, Pastor Rick mentioned that there are those christians that are stradling the fence, one foot in the world and one foot in trying to serve God… It will not word this way. Think of the position you would be in you were literally stradling a fence, you are stuck there, not really able to move in any direction. You won’t be going any where!!! God says when you seek me you shall find me, when you search for me WITH ALL YOUR HEART! You have to be committed to Him! Committed to finding the Truth and then committed to living by it!! God puts it another way ain Revelation when he is speaking to the churches. Take heed and listen to this, it is so relevent to our generation today!

    Passage Revelation 3:15-20:
       15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.   16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

    In other words , God is saying MAKE UP YOUR MIND, Either you are for me or against me, Be either hot or cold, but DON”T be lukewarm (stradling the fence) We have a choice how we are going to live this life for our Lord and Savior. I believe even this day he is speaking to all of us to make a CHANGE!

    )Passage Joshua 24:15:
       15And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

    CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE, It is totally your choice, not your parents, your friends, your pastors, not even Jesus choice, Its up to you to CHOOSE!  Who are you going to serve and are you willing to do it with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul! Are you will to totally surrender your life to the plan and purpose that God has for you. We have a great example of someone doing that. Jesus willfully gave up HIS life for the plan and purpose of His Father.

    Passage John 5:19:

       19Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

    We have to remember when Christ chose to accept the plan and purpose His Father had for Him, He had a human will and mind and emotions, just like you and me, but HE made the choice to only do those things he saw His Father doing. He knew His relationship with His Father and knew He could only succeed if He did it His Fathers way. We can only succeed if we do it Gods way. He has layed it out very plainly in His word. Have you ever heard the phrase, its ALL or NOTHING………… Honestly that is the truth, we cannot serve the God of the universe half heartedly, He wants ALL of US!

    The question is are you Willing?? It is a daily decision….

    Passage Luke 9:23:

       23And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

    We have a choice daily to surrender our lives to the plan and purpose of God. If doesn’t just happen automatically after you accept Christ as your Savior, it is a daily decision to make Him Lord over every area of your life. Are you ready to change your life and live  this way daily. God is calling will you answer?

    God Bless You,

    Pastor Carol

    One Body, Many Members! June 18, 2010

    Filed under: Uncategorized — Pastors Rick & Carol Mora @ 7:52 am

    Praise God,

    I am so excited today that God made us One Body, but many memebers and the members are all different. We were so blessed last night to have a whole Spanish Church join us for service. It was so Awesome. I believe God has used that whole experience to touch Pastor Rick and I in a special way. We gleaned off of them such a reverence for the Lord. It was so Great! We had such a wonderful service and felt so blessed to Worship with our brothers and sisters in Christ! For TOO LONG, churches have separated themselves from their other parts of the Body! This should not be so!!! Your human body could not function very well if your members of your body did not work together. Your fingers need your wrist and your arms to be able to move or your fingers would not have much purpose! Lets look at the word and see what the Words says about it!!

    Romans 12

      4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:

       5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

    Each of us as believers are connected together into ONE BODY, no matter if you are baptist, penecostal, catholic or…. if you are a born again child of God, we are ALL connected into ONE Body!

       6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

       7Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;

       8Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

    We all have different offices, gifts and jobs to do in the Body! And we need to be doing them. If you are not doing your part, you are hurting the Body of Christ. What you do or don’t do affect others……

       9Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good

    .Dissimulation is a form of deception in which one conceals the truth. It consists of concealing the truth, or in the case of half-truths, concealing parts

    We are called to Love our brothers and sisters in Christ with a pure Love, the Love of Jesus!! Not concealing the truth!!!

       10Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

    One thing that may Christians don’t do is…..preferring one another; We have many selfish Christians today hindering the work of the Body of Christ. We need to roll up our sleeves and work as one Body!! Praise God, I can see it happening, Lets go for it, with NO HIDDEN AGENDAS!!!

     

    I Cor 12:

       12For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

       13For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

       14For the body is not one member, but many.

       15If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

       16And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

       17If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

       18But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

       19And if they were all one member, where were the body?

       20But now are they many members, yet but one body.

       21And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

       22Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:

       23And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

       24For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.

       25That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

       26And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

       27Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular

     Praise God, I am out of time this morning as we still do not have internet at home, but I encourage you today to meditate on these scriptures and examine where God has you and want parts of the body of Christ that he has in your environment, are you working with them or fighting against them. Lets work as one body and Light this world on Fire with the Love and Light of Jesus Christ.

    God Bless you,

    I love you all

    The Book of Acts June 8, 2010

    HI Everyone,

    Its time to walk on Water and do the things Jesus did and even greater things!!!

    Still without internet at home, so we are at a local restaurant. I just wanted to share a thought with you that I have been meditating on the last few weeks. I did a blog a couple of weeks ago on God’s pattern for the church, using Acts Chapter 2 as the basis for the teaching. I believe there is a key in that teaching along with the results that come in the following chapters of Acts because of Chapters 1 and 2 in the book of Acts. I have heard that we are living in Acts Chapter 29 right now! I believe God’s word that says, we will do the things Jesus did and even greater things because He went to the Father and sent us the Holy Spirit!! I am excited to see the church Body ARISE and walk in the Boldness and the Power that is available in the Holy Spirit!! I believe God is going to have me dwell and study the chapters of Acts and I will be teaching more as He gives me more revelation! He wants to guide us and equip us for the journey he has for us to walk in!

    I will be back as soon as I can. Please keep us in your prayer as there has been so many changes and MORE coming!!

    Love in Christ,

    Pastor Carol
