Morning with Ebenezer


Dear brothers, you are only visitors here. Since your real home is in heaven, I beg you to keep away from the evil pleasures of this world; they are not for you, for they fight against your very souls.
Be careful how you behave among your unsaved neighbors; for then, even if they are suspicious of you and talk against you, they will end up praising God for your good works when Christ returns.

1 Peter 2:11-13 TLB

One of the arts that each one of us needs to learn is how to live with people who don't believe in Jesus Christ that we believe. These people need to see God in us no matter what the situations are in life. Jesus prayed that God may not take His church out of this world, but that He may keep them from the evil one. (John 17:15)

Many Christians fell to act right before unbelievers and run to pass judgments on people. They forget that one day they were also in the mess of sin and it took the love of God to pull them out of their sinful lives. We judge others and try everyday to take the position of God by thinking that we have figured out all and nothing is wrong with us.

This doesn't mean that we need to be equally yoked with unbelievers, but it means to walk with wisdom in our contacts with them. They need to know the Lord through us and if we don't show our godly attitude before them, then they will be no one who can lead them to the way of truth. Many once known as good Christians did things that destroyed the faith of many, but you and i who are still walking in the truth need to be the good examples before the world.

This morning, I want to encourage you to ask wisdom from God that will help you to live with those who don't know Him yet. Maybe you have been having a judgmental mentality on those who do things that are not pleasing before the Lord. You need to remember without the Spirit of God in you; even you can do things that may amaze many including those who follow your example in Christ Jesus.

Stop boasting and think that you are holier or better than others. If you live the life that is perfect before the Lord then you need to be thankful and humbly help others to reach where you are right now. I pray that God may help you to know His word and live it without subtracting or adding anything into it. I pray that you may live according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ without watering down the truth or twisting it to please your own selfish interests in life.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Father, I give myself to You that You may change me. Lord help me to have a good attitude towards people who you don't know You. Use me to tell people about your love and help anyone who wants to know in this life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

Psalm 84:10 NIV

King David was a God fearing man since his youth. He walked with God everywhere he went and God was with him until the end of his life. He had a unique connection with God in his heart that was not common for men to have in his days. He followed the direction of God through His Spirit before doing anything and this made him to be a greatest King ever ruled in ancient Israel.

David walked in the presence of God in his life. He was a man after God's own heart and God was with Him in everything he did. He enjoyed being in the presence of God than anything else in his life; no wonder the account of his life continues touching us even to this day. He lived the God fearing life that keeps on challenging us that we can also live as he lived. (Acts 13:22)

He says these words in chapter 27:4 of the Book of Psalm: One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. This verse shows how much David loved the presence of the Lord; how much he wanted to live and stay in the presence of Almighty God in all the days of his life.

This morning, I just want to encourage you to seek being in the presence of the Lord. Today is the day of the Lord; Christians throughout the world are going to God Churches in every corner of this world to worship the God of glory, the Father of Jesus Christ. As you go there, seek to go back home with His presence; ask Him to anoint you with the new oil and rekindle the fire of Holy Ghost within you.

In His presence there are all the answers; In His presence there is healing, deliverance, breakthroughs and answers to your prayers. When you walk with His presence the devil will never touch you or torture you in any way. Seek to be in His presence, better a day in His presence than a thousand elsewhere; if you will walk in His presence then you will live a victorious and prosperous life.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Father, I have been walking without your presence for long time now. Lord I have been making decision using my own mind without even asking for the wise counsel from You. Lord I'm asking today that You may walk with me and help me to walk and stay in your presence. Lord help me to obey your voice and follow all of your instructions that I may live a victorious life in Christ Jesus. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

1 John 1:8-10 NIV

We were born in a nature of sin, after the fall of a first man then all generations after Him were born in the guilty of sin. In chapter four of the Book of Genesis we see the first murder committed by Cain who was the brother of Abel. He decided to kill his brother because he got favor before the eyes of the Lord; for he brought offerings according to the directions of the Lord while Cain did according to the dictates of his own heart.

Sin started spreading among the sons of men, when the earth was populated many started seeking other ways of worship; and created false gods and rejected the true God who created the heavens and earth. Since that time we are all guilty of sin in one way or another; that's why you can ask why even a two year old child let say a boy can show some signs of rebellion to his parents. He may not understand what he is doing; but it is the sin in him that manifests itself through those small acts of rebellion.

Without God we cannot do anything right; always there will be a desire inside of us to do things that are against the will of God in our lives. You can go out there and read every wonderful book that you can get and obey all the principles on how you should live right and be a good person; but all of those cannot cure you from the curse of sin that came down from Adam. Here is where Jesus comes to the picture and that's why the whole world needs Jesus because He is the only one who can save us from ourselves.

This morning, you need to know that in Jesus Christ there is a victory over sin. Jesus is the only one can save us from our own selves; and without Him we may end up committing suicide when we face difficult challenges in life. Many have done that because they had no Jesus in them to help them overcome what was eating them inside. This Jesus not only saves us from the world but He saves us from our own selves.

This Jesus can deliver you from the curse of sin that has been eating your family generation after generation. He is the only one who can break the chains of Hades over your life and give you the freedom you need to excel in this life. We need Jesus, I need Jesus and you need Jesus too! Let's not us forget that without Him we cannot do anything and start living the life of depending on Him in everything.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I come before you by the blood of Jesus. Lord I'm asking that You may forgive me from all of my sins. Wash me in the blood of your Son that I may be worth to inherit your heavenly kingdom; and give me strength to overcome sin in my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob, all the remnant of the people of Israel, you whom I have upheld since your birth, and have carried since you were born. Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
Isaiah 46:3-4 NIV

David says he has been young and when he was writing that chapter of Psalm 37 he was old. In all of his years he has never seen the Lord forsake a man who loves him; nor has he seen the children of the godly go hungry, Psalm 37:25. He has seen God being faithful to his people throughout the years to those who had put their trust in Him.

God was talking with the children of Israel through the mouth of Eagle Prophet Isaiah; that He will be with them even to their old age and gray hairs. He will sustain them, carry them and rescue them from every snare of the enemy. Many generations have passed and mighty kings have ruled in this world; but all of them are nowhere to be found right now. Their ancient glory is no longer there; but God has kept His word to His children of Israel who still to date are prospering and increasing in the face of the earth.

The day you received Jesus as the Lord and Savior of your life; you entered in the family of God. Your name was written in the book of life, the book of those who go to heaven. Since that day, you are before the eyes of God always and He calls you His child. This God who you have put your trust in Him; He will take care of you and sustain you for the rest of your life if you will stay faithful before Him.

This morning, you need to know that God will be there for you until the end of your life. If you will continue walking in the Lord and living the faithful life before Him; then you need to be sure He will take care of you and your children and your children's children. You can live at peace knowing there is assurance of better life for you even in your old age.

I want to encourage you to continue investing in the kingdom of God by giving your tithes and offerings to the Lord. Continue investing your time in prayers and doing the good works to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. God will sustain you and keep you safe in Christ Jesus our Lord as long as you live.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Father, my life is in your hands. I'm asking that You may be with me in all of my days and sustain me in every season of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:25 NIV

The church of Jesus Christ is the instrument that holds the name of Jesus in this world. In this church we find prayer warriors and servants of God who spread the Gospel of salvation to every creature. These people have put their hope in Christ Jesus and they live their life by faith in this wicked world.

This church is like a factory that broken cars are being taken; these cars get to be rebuilt again and modified according to the vision of the owners. We come in the church of Jesus Christ broken and tired from the life of sin; then Jesus start to rebuild us through His word and makes us to be in His own image and likeness in the Holy Spirit.

Each one of us needs to belong in certain body of believers; this church is supposed to recognize Christ Jesus as their Lord and believe that God raised Him form dead. This body of believers needs to believe in the Holy Bible and teach her members to live the holy life in Christ Jesus our Lord and savior.

This morning, I want to encourage you to ask the Lord Jesus to direct you in the church that He wants you to grow in Him. Sometimes you may say you are born again and filled with the Spirit of God; but you are in church that doesn't give you the proper teachings you need that you may live a victorious life in Christ Jesus. Maybe you are still in religious traditional churches that don't put emphasis on the word of God and make you be weak in the faith.

You need to be somewhere that you will be free to seek the face of the Lord with your other team mates in Christ Jesus our Lord. You need to be places where you will get spiritual help you need to overcome your personal problems and being taught how you will be able to conquer sin in your life. I believe God has placed His true churches in different places and if you ask Him to direct you to a place where you will get to know Him more; then He will direct you and guide your steps in the right direction.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Father, I pray that You may help me to grow in the Lord Jesus Christ and continue to live the life worth of my calling. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, “My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.”

Isaiah 46:10 NIVUK

For those who are in Christ Jesus know that the Spirit of God reveal things to us before they even take place. I remember they are some things that God spoke into my spirit some years ago and they seemed to be unrealistic at the time because there was nothing to prove that they would exist during that time. But those things started to come to pass in recent years and what God told me was true and Amen.

I hear testimonies of different men and women of faith who God spoke to them concerning some things that will happen in their futures; and they reached a point they gave up on those things but in due time God confirmed His word to them. God tells you the end from the beginning, but He doesn't give you the details that will take place in the middle of those two periods of time.

Most people grow tired when those details start to unfold; most of the time these details are different from the given promise that will come to pass at the end of that period. God allow some things that seem to be sour or not sweet to many, but those are the things that God uses to shape His servants for the work that He has prepared for them. If you are not careful you will become weary and start doubting the promises of God over your life.

This morning, I want to encourage you to stop paying attention to the small details and continue focusing on the big picture. If God said one day you will serve Him and He will use you for His glory. Then stop looking on your imperfections and what you know and don't know; but focus on the calling of God and wait for His time to use you.

If God said you will be a mother of happy home; then stop paying attention on what doctors said concerning your fertility ability and continue trusting God for the impossible. If you asked God for a spouse and He promised you that He will give you one to you; then stop running around looking for one from the world but wait for the one from heaven. If He promised you a house; then by faith start planning where you will live and which kind of house you are going to build instead of feeling envy for those who have their own houses.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I'm asking that You may help me to continue waiting for your promise to unfold in my life. Help me Lord to stop paying attention on the discouragements along the way; but that I may keep on trusting your word that You have spoken over my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV

God is telling us to call Him, if someone tells you to call him this means he is ready to listen. He then continues by saying I will answer you, when you call the name of the Lord always they will be an answer to your call. Then He will show you great and mighty things (secret things), which you do not know.

Almost all believers in one way or another have heard about this verse and because it’s short most of us are able to quote it without any problem. In the reality not all of us we are understand the depth of this Scripture and the meaning lay behind it. This Scripture gives the emphasis on prayers; it shows that without prayers we will remain to be ignorant concerning the things that takes place in the spiritual realm.

Prayers warriors in the Body of Christ believe that everything is starting in the spiritual world and be manifested in the physical world. This means if you want to make changes in your situation then you need to start in the spirit; that's why Paul the Apostle says; For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, 2 Corinthians 10:3. All spiritual warfare are being held in the spiritual realm and the results get to be seen in the physical realm.

This morning, God wants you to know that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. If you call the name of the Lord, He will save you out of your situation. If you call His name, He will tell you what is going on in your life and the lives of those you love. If you pray things will change and God will visit you in an extra-ordinary way.

You don't see changes in your life because you don't pray. You are not seeing the hand of the Lord in your life because you are not seriously engaged in prayer life. God keep bringing this message in my heart because I believe there is someone who is needed to get this kind of message including myself. I pray that God may touch our hearts and lead us in the right direction in the Lord.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Father, help me to live the life of prayers. Help me to call your name and seek your face in all the days of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Ephesians 6:12 NIV

Maybe you have experienced struggles in your life. You have found yourself fighting with one thing after another. When one struggle ends another one starts; when you reach point thinking that all things will be fine then another tragedy appear out of nowhere.

There are some Christians who are fighting with things in the dreams at nights that make them uncomfortable. These things affect their way of thinking and sometimes they think maybe God has left them alone and the enemy has got a better of them.

Some Christians has been struggling with some things that have been passing through the family line. There are some families that are struggling with the spirit of infidelity, while others are struggling with the problem of drinking. Some families are struggling with witchcraft and familiar spirits that have been causing problems in the family and causing conflicts within family members.

This morning, I just want you to know that for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortress. If there is any kind of spiritual strongholds in your life; you need to learn to pull them by using the divinely weapons that we have been given in the Scriptures.

You need to learn to use the name of Jesus, use the blood of Jesus and the fire of Holy Spirit as the weapons of demolishing wicked strongholds in your life. You won't be able to fight in this war with the enemy if you will not spend the quality time to read the word of God and praying for the divinely wisdom and direction. The Lord will lead you all the way if you will put your total trust in Him and fight for your battles in your life.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I surrender my battles into your hands. Lord I'm asking that You may fight for me and be with me for the rest of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Sunday, June 22, 2014

Morning with Ebenezer


But the day when the Lord comes again will surprise everyone like the coming of a thief. The sky will disappear with a loud noise. Everything in the sky will be destroyed with fire. And the earth and everything in it will be burned up. Everything will be destroyed in this way. So what kind of people should you be? Your lives should be holy and devoted to God. You should be looking forward to the day of God, wanting more than anything else for it to come soon. When it comes, the sky will be destroyed with fire, and everything in the sky will melt with heat.

2 Peter 3:10-12 ERV

Apostle Peter gives an account of the day of the Lord. He says that the Lord will come unexpectedly as a thief and this will surprise everyone. He talks about the way the heavens will disappear with a great noise, and everything will be destroyed with fire. This present earth will disappear and everything will be burned up.  Then he says everything will be destroyed in this way.

Then he continued talking to us who are waiting for that day to come. He says there is a kind of life that we need to live, the holy life and devoted to God. We should be looking forward to the day of God, and pray that it may come soon that we may rescued from every kind of evil of this world. When this world is completely destroyed, then they will be new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.

If we know this truth then we need to live a spotless and blameless life that we may be found worthy to inherit that glorious coming kingdom. That kingdom will not be shaken nor destroyed forever and ever; the kingdom that will be filled with righteousness and ruled in peace. In that kingdom they will be no more death nor mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

This morning, I want you to know that God has prepared a better kingdom ahead of us than the kingdoms of this world. This world will pass away, people who don't fear God regardless how rich they are; one day they will die like every one of us. When they die, it will be the end of their luxurious life and all what they temporary enjoyed in this world. Their names will be forgotten and no place will be found for them before the Lord except in hell.

I know that you don't want to go to hell; I know that you want to inherit the coming kingdom of Messiah. Then you need to wake up every day and make sure you live the holy life before the Lord. In each new morning you need to make it an agenda that you will please the Lord in that particular day regardless the cost it may be. God bless you.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I don't want to miss your coming kingdom. Help me to live the holy life in Christ Jesus; give me strength to overcome sin and live according to your word. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

Have you ever had those nights that you couldn't sleep and keep asking yourself questions like what if this goes wrong? What if this could be the end of me? What if I will end up being unsuccessful in life? What is my marriage won't work like I once anticipated? What if my children won't turn out to be good as I teach them to be?

Each one of us in one way or another has asked ourselves those questions in a course of life. There many what if’s questions that they don't get answers even in the course of years. There are questions like what if God didn't forgive me from that sin; what if I will not stay faithful to the Lord until the end of my of my life?

These questions can lead to sleepless nights and unproductive days and the enemy uses this to take our focus from the Lord and that we may focus on ourselves and limitations capabilities. The Bible says God knows the thoughts and plans He has for us; plans and thoughts to prosper us and not to harm us, to give us hope and a future.

This morning, I just want you to know there is a hope and good future for you in Christ Jesus. It doesn't matter what life keep on bringing for you right now; and how things look like in this present time. There is something good in store for you in God. There is a breakthrough ahead of you and the victory over your difficulties and trials.

You need to start using the eyes of faith, and start looking those things that are not like they are in your life. God is with you; He will never leave you alone nor forsake you. He will give you strength in your darkness night and give you wisdom more than your foes. Trust Him today and know that everything will be alright.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Father, I will put my hope into You Lord. I will trust you with my life and everything within me; I will obey your word and live according to your will. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


Pray without ceasing.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV

Jesus told His disciples that they should pray that they may not enter into temptations. In other words when we pray we get the grace we need to prevent us entering into different temptations. These temptations maybe things that caused you to error before you knew the Lord.

Maybe you had some weakness when it comes to women, and you found yourself falling into sin every now and then. The only thing that will sustain you in the present and prevent you from repeating the same mistakes you made before you knew the Lord is prayers. If you pray without ceasing then the devil will not have a chance to dominate you on that weakness.

It doesn't matter if you were drinking until you lose your conscience or fighting with your spouse and reject every good advice from people. Prayer will help you to live a righteous life before the Lord and prevent you to return into your old self that committed sin before the Lord.

This morning, I just want to encourage you to pray. You need to pray always if you want to live a victorious life in Christ Jesus. You will overcome sin, walk above your fears and get the victory you need in the hour of temptations.

Learn to solve your problems on your knees, when you pray and tell God about your problems. He is faithful; He will answer you and get you out from anything that makes you uncomfortable in life. Prayer works, if you want to see the hand of God in your life then you need to be a man or woman of prayer.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live the life of prayers in all the days of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


People who cannot control themselves are like cities without walls to protect them.

Proverbs 25:28 ERV

There are some of us due to the life that we lived in the past can't control our emotions. We find ourselves expressing everything that touches us in a good or bad way. Some of us are struggling with the problem of anger, and most of the time we lose control and end up regretting what we said to others.

The Bible says people who cannot control themselves are like cities without walls to protect them. Self control is the fruit of the Holy Spirit, is found in a person who is full of the Spirit and walk in the Spirit of God. Without the Spirit of Jesus a person will always struggle in controlling his temper and lack the wisdom to control his words. (Galatians 5:22)

Self control will help you to control your moods, you will be able to watch your words careful, when someone wrongs you, and you will be able to control your reactions. You will be able to stick on your original schedule and use your time properly. Self control will help you to control your money and take care of your health. We need self control in every corner of our lives. (Proverbs 13:3, 19:11, 21:20, Ephesians 5:15-16, 1 Thessalonians 4:4)

This morning, I just want to encourage you to ask the Lord to give you self control. Ask the Lord to help to control your emotions and put a guard on your lips. Ask the Lord to control your body desires and give you strength to overcome any lustful desires in your heart. 

We as Christians need to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. If we learn to live right like the word of God suggests then we will set a good example to the world. If we exercise self control in our lives then we will not give a room for the devil to ruin our lives for lacking the wisdom we need to control ourselves in this life.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I'm asking that You may forgive me for lacking self control in my life. I'm asking that You may help give me the Spirit of power, love and self control. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


For it is my Father’s will that everyone who sees his Son and believes on him should have eternal life—that I should raise him at the Last Day.”

John 6:40 TLB

God the Father is the Father to the fatherless and defender of widows. God the Father is the Father of all of us both righteous and wicked in this world. He is the one who causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

He created us that we may worship Him with our lives and everything within us. He created us that we may serve Him and fulfill His purpose in this world. He sent His son because we fell in sin and we needed a Savior. The Savior came and bought back our freedom from the enemy of our souls and that freedom is freely given to everyone who accepts Jesus by faith.

God the Father had a plan in mind for us; He didn't want us to continue living in this corrupt world forever; that's why through Son Jesus we got the right to be His children and have eternal life after death. If you believe in Jesus then you need to be sure you will live for the all eternity with God. Jesus will raise you at the Last Day that you may inherit the Kingdom of your Father was prepared for you from the founding of the world.

This morning, God wants you to hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown because He is coming soon, Revelation 3:11. Receiving Jesus as the Lord and Savior is not the end of the journey; there are some who believe in the doctrine of once saved always saved. They believe that a person cannot lose his salvation along the way so they teach people to be comfortable and live whatsoever life styles they desire including that involve sin.

Those are false teachings; you and I can lose our salvation if we will not hold on Jesus until the end. The Bible teaches us that those who will endure until the end will be saved, Matthew 24:13. This means that if you will continue with your salvation until the coming of our Lord or until the day you die; then you will qualify to be raised up by the Lord in the Last Day to inherit the Kingdom of our Father. If you will leave the Lord along the way and follow the dictates of your own heart; then your place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, infamous known as hell of fire or Gehenna.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that You may help me to be faithful before You. Lord help me to live the life that your word commands me to live. Help me to be good Christian both in the dark and light that I may be a living testimony before all who don't know You ooh Lord. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


Christ himself is the Creator who made everything in heaven and earth, the things we can see and the things we can’t; the spirit world with its kings and kingdoms, its rulers and authorities; all were made by Christ for his own use and glory. He was before all else began and it is his power that holds everything together. He is the Head of the body made up of his people—that is, his Church—which he began; and he is the Leader of all those who arise from the dead, so that he is first in everything;

Colossians 1:16-18 TLB

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. No one goes to the Father except through Him. I was once lost in sin but Jesus took me in. Jesus is the answer of the world today, above Him there is no other, Jesus is the way.

We are living with so many questions inside of us that need to be answered; the modern man seeks answer of almost everything but many times find himself unable to answer many questions. Many of us we are asking ourselves why we lived the life that we had; why God did not intervene some situations that left unforgettable scars within us.

Men can give many reasons why your life has turned out to be the way it; but Jesus can give you answers that will satisfy your soul. There are advanced technology that can solve almost every problem that modern man face; but that technology has failed to solve one problem that has been existing generations to generations. Technology cannot solve the problem of sin but Jesus can! Money will not buy you the inheritance in the Kingdom of God but Jesus has already done by His own precious blood.

This morning, I want to encourage you to turn to Jesus for answers. There some faithful Christians who were molested when they were still children; even in their adult life they are still struggling why the God of love allowed those inhuman acts to happen to them. They can't figure out why those things that happened many years ago still cause sharp pain in them like they happened just yesterday.

Jesus is the only one who can deliver someone from such pain, bring total healing and restore that broken soul. Jesus is the answer to your marital problems; Jesus is the one who can give you that child your have been trying tired-less to have. Jesus is the one who can help you land that dream job you have been believing God since you were freshman in collage. Jesus is the answer and solution to everything; go to Him today and He will give you the desire of your heart.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer...

Dear Heavenly Father, I come before you today; Lord I'm asking that You may touch my heart and heal my soul. Lord I'm asking that You may answer my deepest questions within me; Lord meet my deepest needs in my soul and most of all walk with me in all seasons of my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,

Hebrews 9:27 NKJV

We read about famous people in the history of this world; people who had great riches and wisdom in their days. People, who conquered kingdoms, built great cities and feared by everyone because their powers were unstoppable. All these people shared common fate that is death, all these people died and all what they did remain behind them.

We all going to die one day, the Bible clearly says that we were destined to die once, and after that face judgment. Every man who has ever lived will one day face judgment; God will judge each one of us according to what we did in the flesh whether good or bad. For those who died in Christ we have hope that we will see them again in the Kingdom of our Father.

For those who did not have Christ in their lives is as twice as painfully because we know will never meet them again and they will spend their eternity in hell. I know each one of us have experienced a loss of a loved one in one way or another; this is an indication if they went away, it will reach a point we will also go away!

This morning, I want to encourage you to keep looking on Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith. Keep looking on Jesus and living the holy life in Him; while knowing we all walk with death in us. This will help you to be prepared all the time that you may be ready when God calls your name.

If you have unsaved loved ones, don't give up on them; but continue with all diligence praying for salvation of their souls. If you have the hope of going to heaven then you need to make sure they follow you path; because hell was not intended for any human being and it breaks the heart of the Lord seeing many are choosing the broad-way that leads to destruction. You need to act today because tomorrow is never promised to anyone.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I'm asking that You may help me to continue abiding in You. Help me to live the life worth of my calling in Christ Jesus my Lord in all the days of my life I pray for unsaved loved ones, Lord touch their hearts that they may know You and accept You as the Lord and Savior of their lives before it’s too late for them. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


These things that were written in the Scriptures so long ago are to teach us patience and to encourage us so that we will look forward expectantly to the time when God will conquer sin and death.

Romans 15:4 TLB

One of the most powerful heritages that the LORD God has left for His people in this world is Scriptures. When I say God people, I mean both Jews and Gentile Christians; Scriptures are endless voice of God speaking through those pages of the Bible and Torah.

These Scriptures were written to teach us patience and to encourage us to so that we may have hope that one day our salvation will be fulfilled and we will no longer live under the bondage of sin and death. Jesus said, "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away, Matthew 24:35. Whatsoever has been predicted in the Scriptures have either came to pass or will soon come to pass because the word of God is true and Amen.

These Scriptures are supposed to be interpreted by the help of the Spirit of God and not one's mind. He is the one who helped men of God in the past to write those Scriptures and He is the one who can give a precise meaning of Scriptures. In other words that no one can stand and interpret Scriptures as needed to be interpreted if he doesn't have the Spirit of life in him.

This morning, you need to ask the Holy Spirit to help understand what is written in the Scriptures. We have people in the Church who interpret Scriptures wrongly; they are there to protect the interests of their stomach and hence they do anything to make sure their interests stand. They use sacred Scriptures to promote their financial campaigns and careless about the perishing souls who are in need of salvation in Christ Jesus.

Some have put the emphasis in miracles and financial prosperity and forget preaching the Gospel of salvation and grace. There are a lot of wrong interpretations of the Scriptures out there and we need the Spirit of God to help us discern what real a right interpretation is. True spiritual and physical prosperity is found in reading and put Scriptures into practices; I pray that God may increase your understanding of the Scriptures that you may continue to grow and mature in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear God, thank You for giving us Scriptures. Lord I'm asking that You may give me the understand I need that I may interpret Scriptures and live according to what written in your Word. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:

Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV

Our God is not limited with time but our lives are bound in time. There is a season to everything and time for every purpose under heaven. The writer of the Book of Ecclesiastes who believed to be King Solomon listed different events in life that take place when their time comes in Eccl 3:1-8.

I believe now is the time for you to do something in your life. If you will waste this time then that thing will never get done in a proper time. Let's put this way, maybe you are in college now and you take the course of three years to four. If you won't finish that course on time, it means you will have to disturb another season to finish today assignment.

It may apply the same to each one of us; God has ways to tell us what kind of season we are in and how we are supposed to act in them. It may happen God has been whispering inside of your spiritual ears that you need to do something now. Maybe doing a business or going back to school; sometimes it may be a delayed yes to accept a ministry call or even it may be a call to reconcile with your foe.

This morning, I want to encourage you to know what kind of season you are in life and make sure you fulfill its purpose in your life. You need to live knowing that everything is bound in time; your goals and prosperity are bound in time. If you will use your present time properly then you will be in a better position of succeeding in the future.

If you sow your seeds in a right way; then you will have good harvest later in life. If you are student stick with school and stop mixing things concentrate in your studies; if God gave you a spouse then stop looking at others and be faithful in your marriage. If you are in the ministry then be faithful in the Lord and stop being greedy by looking for dishonest gain and God will be with you.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I'm asking that You may give me wisdom to use my time properly. Help me to save time knowing that I live in the times of evil and I shouldn't give a chance to the enemy to destroy my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 4:14-16 NKJV

Jesus was in all point tempted as we are, He did not sin. He lived the same world that all of us are living and faced the same kind of hardships that we all face. This Jesus not only studied and understood the nature of human being; but also felt it from Himself because He was also a man.

He came with the mission and fulfilled His mission with triumph by defeating Satan and save the whole humanity from the bondage of sin. When He rose from dead, He told His disciples to wait to the promise of the Father. This promise was the Holy Spirit of God, who will come to be the Helper, Counselor, and Advocate; and to stay with the Church of Jesus Christ forever

He did not leave us orphans; He left the Helper to help us to live our Christian life. He knew that we wouldn't make by ourselves in this life; He knew that we have the nature of weakness and we needed something to encourage us along the way. He did not live a man behind but instead He left the Third of Personal of Godhead to be with us forever.

This morning, I want to encourage you to go to Jesus that you may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. If you have any need in your life right now; you need to take that need to Jesus Himself and not to people. Maybe you have those who you trust and you think that they will come to rescue in the day of your need; but only Jesus will understand the width and length and depth and height of your need.

No matter what takes in your life you need to know that You have Jesus. And Jesus is not a man, that He should lie, or a son of man, that He should change His mind towards you. If you go to Him by faith and ask Him about your needs; He will provide them according to His riches and glory. He will act according to His word that He may fulfill all what He has said in the Scriptures towards His glorious Church in this world.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Son, thank You for your Spirit; thank You for saving me from sin and thank You for the gift of this life. Lord I commit all my needs into your hands; I'm asking that You may meet them according to your riches and glory in Christ Jesus my Lord. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
