Praise God for CHANGE ! March 11, 2015
We went to an awesome conference a couple weeks ago in Tampa Fl, The Overcomers Tour with Dr. Henry Wright. It was awesome and since then, God has been moving mightily in our midst.We are seeing provisions in many different ways and changes in areas that needed to change.
We will be having Sunday services at a new location beginning this Sunday March 15th at 2pm.
Services will be held at Community Harvest Church located at the corner of 301 and 16th Ave in Zephyrhills, FL
Our service will be at 2pm on Sundays. I am also looking forward to getting internet put in our home and that will make it easier for me to do my blogs which I love to do, but have not been able to without the internet available.
Please feel free to contact me at anytime,

Are your actions making a positive difference in someone’s life? October 30, 2014
Jesus Christ is our example… Did his actions make a difference in your life? It has if you have received what he did on Calvary for you.
2 Corinthians 5:21
New King James Version (NKJV)
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Jesus’ assignment was to come to earth and be the sinless sacrifice for the sins of the world. He accomplished that assignment and now sits at the right hand of the Father. What does God have for you specifically to do before He calls you home to be with him? I believe we have specific assignments during our lifetime here on earth and we need to be walking in the fullness of them. So just as your life was touched and changed by the love and actions of Father God and Jesus, so too does your love and actions affect others? And in turn it will affect your life also!!
Lets look at a great example of someone walking in their assignment to be there for someone else and how it not only ministered to that person, but it changed her life also.
New King James Version (NKJV)
Elimelech’s Family Goes to Moab
1 Now it came to pass, in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem, Judah, went to dwell in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. 2 The name of the man was Elimelech, the name of his wife was Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion—Ephrathites of Bethlehem, Judah. And they went to the country of Moab and remained there. 3 Then Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, died; and she was left, and her two sons. 4 Now they took wives of the women of Moab: the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth. And they dwelt there about ten years. 5Then both Mahlon and Chilion also died; so the woman survived her two sons and her husband.
Lets look at the situation here for a minute. We see three women here who all have lost their husbands and Noami had lost both of her sons also. You could say it was a very hard time for them and their lives had changed overnight. But we will see in a minute how their actions could affect each others and their own life in a very big way!!!
Naomi Returns with Ruth
6 Then she arose with her daughters-in-law that she might return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the country of Moab that the LORD had visited His people by giving them bread. 7 Therefore she went out from the place where she was, and her two daughters-in-law with her; and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. 8 And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go, return each to her mother’s house. The LORD deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead and with me. 9 The LORD grant that you may find rest, each in the house of her husband.”
So she kissed them, and they lifted up their voices and wept. 10 And they said to her, “Surely we will return with you to your people.”
11 But Naomi said, “Turn back, my daughters; why will you go with me? Are there still sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands? 12 Turn back, my daughters, go—for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say I have hope, if I should have a husband tonight and should also bear sons, 13 would you wait for them till they were grown? Would you restrain yourselves from having husbands? No, my daughters; for it grieves me very much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD has gone out against me!”
Here we see that Naomi is in a state of hopelessness. She wants the best for her daughter in laws, but does not think that it is with her, because she feels the hand of the Lord has gone out against her…. If you had been one of the daughter in laws what would have you done?
14 Then they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her.
15 And she said, “Look, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law.”
16 But Ruth said:
“ Entreat me not to leave you,
Or to turn back from following after you;
For wherever you go, I will go;
And wherever you lodge, I will lodge;
Your people shall be my people,
And your God, my God.
17 Where you die, I will die,
And there will I be buried.
The LORD do so to me, and more also,
If anything but death parts you and me.”
Here we see Ruth take up the assignment God has for her. God had not forsaken Naomi, he just had a new season for her and this season required Ruth to connect with her in such a way.God has assignments for all of us. I believe the assignments are connected to the people that God puts in our lives at certain times. Ruth had a choice her to stay with Naomi or to leave her. She made the choice that would change her life forever. Do you really believe that ONE CHOICE can change your life forever.
18 When she saw that she was determined to go with her, she stopped speaking to her.
19 Now the two of them went until they came to Bethlehem. And it happened, when they had come to Bethlehem, that all the city was excited because of them; and the women said, “Is this Naomi?”
20 But she said to them, “Do not call me Naomi;[a] call me Mara,[b] for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me. 21 I went out full, and the LORD has brought me home again empty. Why do you call me Naomi, since the LORD has testified against me, and the Almighty has afflicted me?”
22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess her daughter-in-law with her, who returned from the country of Moab. Now they came to Bethlehem at the beginning of barley harvest.
Ruth Meets Boaz
1 There was a relative of Naomi’s husband, a man of great wealth, of the family of Elimelech. His name was Boaz. 2 So Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, “Please let me go to the field, and glean heads of grain after him in whose sight I may find favor.”
And she said to her, “Go, my daughter.”
3 Then she left, and went and gleaned in the field after the reapers. And she happened to come to the part of the field belonging to Boaz, who was of the family of Elimelech.
4 Now behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said to the reapers, “The LORD be with you!”
And they answered him, “The LORD bless you!”
5 Then Boaz said to his servant who was in charge of the reapers, “Whose young woman is this?”
Believe me, people are watching what your are doing and how you go about doing it. The are not only watching your actions, but also your attitudes. Your actions as you follow Jesus will put you in the right place at the right time. You will have favor with God and with man. This is so awesome, reminds me of my favorite verse in( proverbs 3:3-6
6 So the servant who was in charge of the reapers answered and said, “It is the young Moabite woman who came back with Naomi from the country of Moab. 7 And she said, ‘Please let me glean and gather after the reapers among the sheaves.’ So she came and has continued from morning until now, though she rested a little in the house.”
8 Then Boaz said to Ruth, “You will listen, my daughter, will you not? Do not go to glean in another field, nor go from here, but stay close by my young women. 9 Let your eyes be on the field which they reap, and go after them. Have I not commanded the young men not to touch you? And when you are thirsty, go to the vessels and drink from what the young men have drawn.”
10 So she fell on her face, bowed down to the ground, and said to him, “Why have I found favor in your eyes, that you should take notice of me, since I am a foreigner?”
11 And Boaz answered and said to her, “It has been fully reported to me, all that you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband, and how you have left your father and your mother and the land of your birth, and have come to a people whom you did not know before. 12 The LORD repay your work, and a full reward be given you by the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge.”
God will repay your work! He sees everything you do, even those things that you have done in secret.
13 Then she said, “Let me find favor in your sight, my lord; for you have comforted me, and have spoken kindly to your maidservant, though I am not like one of your maidservants.”
14 Now Boaz said to her at mealtime, “Come here, and eat of the bread, and dip your piece of bread in the vinegar.” So she sat beside the reapers, and he passed parched grain to her; and she ate and was satisfied, and kept some back. 15 And when she rose up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, “Let her glean even among the sheaves, and do not reproach her. 16 Also let grain from the bundles fall purposely for her; leave it that she may glean, and do not rebuke her.”
17 So she gleaned in the field until evening, and beat out what she had gleaned, and it was about an ephah of barley. 18 Then she took it up and went into the city, and her mother-in-law saw what she had gleaned. So she brought out and gave to her what she had kept back after she had been satisfied.
19 And her mother-in-law said to her, “Where have you gleaned today? And where did you work? Blessed be the one who took notice of you.”
So she told her mother-in-law with whom she had worked, and said, “The man’s name with whom I worked today is Boaz.”
20 Then Naomi said to her daughter-in-law, “Blessed be he of the LORD, who has not forsaken His kindness to the living and the dead!” And Naomi said to her, “This man is a relation of ours, one of our close relatives.”
21 Ruth the Moabitess said, “He also said to me, ‘You shall stay close by my young men until they have finished all my harvest.’”
22 And Naomi said to Ruth her daughter-in-law, “It is good, my daughter, that you go out with his young women, and that people do not meet you in any other field.” 23 So she stayed close by the young women of Boaz, to glean until the end of barley harvest and wheat harvest; and she dwelt with her mother-in-law.
It is so awesome to see how Ruth made a choice to follow Naomi and Naomi’s God and how provision and protection surrounded her. You can continue to read in Ruth chapter 3 and see the ongoing provision of the Lord over both Ruth’s life and Naomi’s and how the actions of Boaz also effecting the lives of these two ladies in a remarkable way. When we walk in our assignment from the Lord and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit it will have an impact on other peoples lives. Allow God to use you in a remarkable way to touch someone else and make a difference in their life.
God Bless You

God Bless You my friend!
What are you appointed to do? September 9, 2014
We began a new 5 week teaching last night on Deliverance and Healing. I would like to share with you this morning some of the highlights that touched my heart and I pray God will speak to you as He is doing to us.
Lets start with Mark 3;14-15
Mark 3:14-15New King James Version (NKJV)
One of the most important things for us to remember is that God has called us to:
1. BE WITH HIM…..Sometimes we get so busy in doing that we forget that we need to spend that intimate time with him… As I wrote this I thought of the story of Mary and Martha, where Mary choose the good thing and set at the feet of Jesus. As you will see even in the above verse,,after we spend time with Jesus, then He will SEND us out….
2. Appointed and Annointed to Be Sent Out
Jesus was sent by the Father to do the Fathers will
Luke 4:43New King James Version (NKJV)
43 but He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.”
Just as Jesus was Sent by His Father, then He sent out the disciples with POWER and AUTHORITY!!
Sending Out the Twelve Mark 6
7 And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits. 8 He commanded them to take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bag, no bread, no copper in their money belts— 9 but to wear sandals, and not to put on two tunics.
10 Also He said to them, “In whatever place you enter a house, stay there till you depart from that place. 11 And whoever[a] will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them.[b] Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”
12 So they went out and preached that people should repent. 13 And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.
Luke 10:1New King James Version (NKJV)
The Seventy Sent Out
10 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also,[a] and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.
John 15:26-27New King James Version (NKJV)
26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. Also Luke 24:49
When Jesus returned to the Father He did not leave them alone, but He promised He would SEND a HELPER!!! I am so grateful because the HOLY SPIRIT was also sent for us for such a time as this…
This is something very important for you to understand. When Jesus was here HE annointed and appointed the disciples to go out and do the will of the Father…..But when did we receive the POWER to go out???
Acts 1:8New King James Version (NKJV)
8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me[a] in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
There are many Christians today that are trying to do Gods will in their lives……but they are doing it in their own power….. Jesus sent us the HOLY SPIRIT so we would be FILLED WITH POWER, (Strength and Ability)
God has a plan for His children…to SEND them out into the world and He has equipped us with the Holy Spirit to enable us to do what Jesus did and even greater works….
The Great Commission
14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they[b] will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
God has a plan for your life my friend and it is an awesome plan to SEND YOU out into a world that needs to be Touched and Changed by God himself and He has equipped you through the Holy Spirit to do just that!!! Don’t underestimate the POWER of God that dwells in you…
Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking
9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 11 If a son asks for bread[d] from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
Ask the Father right now for His Promised Holy Spirit to Fill you and endue you with the POWER from above and equip you to go out and do his will and see the signs mentioned about following you as you Go!!!
God bless you my friend
I only touched a little bit this morning, but I will continue soon!!!!

God is so GOOD! August 17, 2014
On Tues August 5th we received a prophecy over us that Jesus was coming to our house and it was for our good and He was observing what we needed. I wasnt exactly sure at that time what it meant but very soon i knew exactly what it meant. The next evening we received a phone call from a lawyer in which he informed us that the bank who held the ownership of the building wanted us out in 8 days!!!!! Now I knew what the prophecy meant, God was about our business, HE WAS IN THE HOUSE TAKING CARE OF EVERYTHING!!
And that is exactly what he did!! He sent someone to buy out the thrift store and they packed everything and took it away and gave us a week to move the church to a new temporary location on a members property!!!
The other half of the prophecy was that rest was coming!!! No more thrift store 6 days a week means REST!!!
We are very excited to see all God has in store for us personally and for the ministry.
Thank you to all the people who helped out this week!! You were Heaven Sent and we thank God for you!!!
Come visit us at our new church location 4111 Ryals Rd Zephyrhills, FL
Services Sunday at 2pm, Monday and Wednesday at 7pm
God Bless you
Your faith has made you well January 3, 2014
YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL
Good Morning My Friends,
Do you know anyone in chronic pain? Or are you yourself suffering in your body on a constant basis? I have met people especially in the last few yrs, being in the ministry, that live with constant pain in their body. I knew they were really dealing with something, but until I experienced constant pain day in and day out, I really wasn’t aware of the toll it takes on every part of your life. It makes even the simplest of daily things hard to accomplish, which begins to wear on your joy and excitement for living….It makes everything harder as you take this constant pain with you wherever you go…. And then if you take medicine to relieve the pain, many times you can’t function and do those things you need to do, even if the pain is masked for a little while….
Well my friend there are a couple examples in the bible, lets take a look.
Mar 5:25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years,
Mar 5:26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.
If we think of her situation you can probably think of someone in your life, or even yourself that has been struggling with a disease or pain for many years and has been in and out of the doctors offices, tried many types of medication, spent much money and YET was no better, or even grew worse…..
Mar 5:27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.
Mar 5:28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”
She dealt with this issue for 12 years and believe me it affected every area of her life. She was not allowed out in public, she could have been stoned, but I believe in her heart she never gave up. I believe her heart was always seeking the answer to her problem. When she heard about Jesus…..Hearing does something to her….
Rom_10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
When this woman HEARD about Jesus, when she heard the WORD….
Joh_1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
This woman’s life began to change the moment she heard the word of God..when she heard the word…. FAITH CAME. My friends this is the first and most crucial step to being made well. You have to have faith in the word of God and that faith only comes by hearing the word of God. We need to consistently put ourselves in the position of hearing the word of God, those scriptures that deal with healing. The healing scriptures need to be what we feed on until we receive our total healing. Healing is the children’s bread, its there for us, but how do we partake. The key is in FAITH and the key to FAITH is HEARING THE WORD.
Mar 5:29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.
Mar 5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”
Mar 5:31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?'”
Mar 5:32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing.
Mar 5:33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
Mar 5:34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
Jesus told this woman that it was her faith that made her well. God is no respecter of persons, so if Faith made her well, can faith make us well also. YES, I believe it can. There’s a couple other things that we need to mention.
After she heard about Jesus and faith started to grow because of hearing the word, she did something with that faith. She started speaking it. She said, if only I may touch his clothes I shall be made well. What are we speaking over ourselves. We need to be speaking the word of God over our lives, mixing it with faith and it will happen!!!! Then after hearing, and speaking she walked into her healing by FAITH….
Heb_4:2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
The word of healing will only profit you when you mix it with faith. And how do you increase your faith? You increase hearing Gods word over your situation.
God bless you as you get into His word and stay there and allow FAITH to rise up and make you well.
