Times of Trouble

Times of Trouble

 

AFCRadioShawn-160-241-03112013Good Day and God Bless Disciples and Ambassadors for Christ Jesus.

Does it seem that no matter what you do it is not pleasing to God?

Sometimes we may think we are doing exactly what our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ will is for us but then trouble comes our way. We fight and we work hard to please God and we see the light at the end of the tunnel and as soon as we feel we are coming out of the tunnel, darkness creeps back in pushing the light even further.

We need to remain calm in these situations and look not to our own strength.

Proverbs 19:11, “Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.”

Lamentations 3:31-32, “For the Lord will not cast off forever, but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love;”

During these times let us not get angry at the LORD because of our grief but remember that we are being refined in the fire for His glory. Remember what our prize is at the end of the process and it will be His Word that will give us the strength.

Psalm 119:28, “My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to your word!”

Even when it seems that nothing is going right in your life at the moment, God wants us to continue to look towards Him for our strength. We must always remember to rejoice in the LORD and remember His sacrifices for our Salvation. Let us have patience and wait on Him to show up and show off when we least expect it.

Habakkuk 3:17-18, “Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.”

Isaiah 33:2, “O LORD, be gracious to us; we wait for you. Be our arm every morning, our salvation in the time of trouble.”

Jesus Loves You!
Amen

Why Worry When You Can Pray?

Why Worry When You Can Pray? Part I and II

Do you not know that God is on your side?

AFCRadioShawn-160-241-03112013

As Christians, we are to be faithful to God, and we believe in the Triune God-head of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are to give complete trust in His Word, as the Truth. We are to praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in good times and in bad times.

However, many times, when we are at our lowest point, we seem to start doubting. We seem to be more concerned about our lives because it is in turmoil. Everything was going great, then all of a sudden a spiritual battle comes upon us and we seem to forget that God’s Word has been preparing us for this day – God will not give us more than we can bear.

Philippians 4:6-7, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (NIV).

Three points:
1. PRAYERS and PETITIONS
2. PROMISES
3. PROTECTION

We provide thanksgiving for our Creator as He created everything under the heavens and the earth. He gives us instructions on how to cultivate our Spiritual garden and seek His face as we emulate His ways. God loves us! His love is deeper than the seas. Our spirit should reflect the beauty of the rainbow, as that is the covenant He established with us in Genesis. Praise the Lord! Keep God first in your life and continue to engage in eternal Thanksgiving to our Lord. We thank you Heavenly Father, we give you all the praise, honor, and glory; Blessings in the name of Jesus!

Do not let God be a snare to you! Do not sin against God; do not worship other gods because there is only one God. Hallelujah! Give Him thanks and sing Songs of Praises while you are attending to His garden; your mind, body, soul, and spirit. Our body is His and we must protect it.

Santo / Holy

Santo / Holy

caroline-savage-150-150Glory to God, Gloria a Dios
Blessings, “There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God” (1 Samuel 2:2, NIV). Nothing or no one is as holy or strong like our God. Do not boast about your human intellect and strength as it fails in comparison to the Power of God. Jehovah is in control, He is very clear on what is going on, and takes necessary steps to protect us against enemy attacks. Are WE willing to do what is necessary in obeying our Lord and submitting ourselves to God, our ROCK? Have a blessed day standing on YOUR ROCK and remain communing with GOD in high places. GOD BLESS!

Bendiciones, “Nadie es santo como el Señor; no hay roca como nuestro Dios. ¡No hay nadie como él!” (1 Samuel 2:2, NVI). Nada ni nadie es tan santo o fuerte como nuestro Dios. No alardean de su intelecto humano y fuerza, ya que falla en comparación con el Poder de Dios. Jehová está en control, Él está muy claro en lo que está pasando, y toma las medidas necesarias para protegernos de los ataques del enemigo. ¿Estamos NOSOTROS dispuestos a hacer lo necesario en obedecer a nuestro Señor y someternos a Dios, nuestra ROCA? Tenga un día bendecido parándote en TÚ ROCA manteniéndote en comunión con DIOS en lugares altos. ¡DIOS BENDIGA!

Finally / Por último

Finally / Por último

caroline-savage-150-150Glory to God, Gloria a Dios

Blessings, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Philippians 4:8, NIV). In sharing the Good News of the Gospel, we must remind ourselves and others how much God is to be praised and how WORTHY He is. We should allow our actions and conversations to reflect just that. In encouraging each other, it doesn’t matter what happened to US. It only matters what CHRIST went through. We can walk around in the freedom of Christ if we think about God’s precepts and mature in His way. Have a blessed day thinking about the goodness of God and admiring how GREAT HE IS!

Bendiciones, “Por último, hermanos, consideren bien todo lo verdadero, todo lo respetable, todo lo justo, todo lo puro, todo lo amable, todo lo digno de admiración, en fin, todo lo que sea excelente o merezca elogio” (Filipenses 4:8, NVI). Al compartir la Buena Noticia del Evangelio, debemos recordar y a los demás lo mucho que Dios debe ser alabado cómo Él es DIGNO. Debemos permitir que nuestras acciones y conversaciones reflejen precisamente eso. En alentarnos unos a otros, no importa lo que pasó a NOSOTROS. Sólo importa lo que CRISTO sufrió. Podemos caminar en la libertad de Cristo si pensamos en los preceptos de Dios y maduramos en Su camino. Tenga un día bendecido pensando en la bondad de Dios y admirando ¡CUÁN GRANDE ES!

We Are More Than / Somos Más Que

We Are More Than / Somos Más Que

caroline-savage-150-150Glory to God, Gloria a Dios, Blessings, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37, NIV). We are victorious in Christ who died for us. Nothing we experience such as trouble, hard times or any sin Jesus overcame in Scripture can defeat us if we truly believe in God. As Believing Christians, we keep the faith, speak the truth of God, and allow Jesus to keep the devil and his machinations nailed to the cross. Have a blessed day engaging in Godly conversations for the glory of God and remain covered under the Precious Blood of Christ. GOD BLESS!

Bendiciones, “Sin embargo, en todo esto somos más que vencedores por medio de aquel que nos amó” (Romanos 8:37, NVI). Somos victoriosos en Cristo quien murió por nosotros. Nada de lo que experimentamos como los problemas, las dificultades o cualquier pecado que Jesús ya venció en la Escritura nos puede derrotar si verdaderamente creemos en Dios. Como Cristianos Creyentes, mantengamos la fe, hablamos la verdad de Dios, y permitamos que Jesús mantenga el diablo y sus maquinaciones clavadas en la cruz. Tenga un día bendecido participando en conversaciones piadosas para la gloria de Dios y permanezca cubierto por la Sangre Preciosa de Cristo. ¡DIOS BENDIGA!

Gentle Answer / Respuesta Amable

Gentle Answer / Respuesta Amable

caroline-savage-150-150                      GLORY TO GOD / GLORIA A DIOS
Blessings, “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” (Proverbs 15:1, NIV). To avoid arguments, we should always keep God first but also respond in a calm manner instead of an unforgiving tone. That way, the things of God will be showcased instead of feeding into the devil. As situations arise, we can choose to arise in Christ who is the only answer or choose to give way to the enemy and promote anger. Have a blessed day choosing the way of Christ to deal with anger and destroy the stronghold of the evil one. GOD BLESS!

Bendiciones, “La respuesta amable calma el enojo, pero la agresiva echa leña al fuego” (Proverbios 15:1, NVI). Para evitar discusiones, siempre debemos tener a Dios en primer lugar y también responder de una manera tranquila en lugar de un tono implacable. De esa manera, las cosas de Dios serán exhibidos en lugar de alimentar al demonio. A medida que surjan situaciones, podemos elegir a surgir en Cristo, quien es la única respuesta o podemos dar paso al enemigo y promover la ira. Tenga un día bendecido eligiendo el camino de Cristo para hacer frente a la ira y destrozar la fortaleza del maligno. ¡DIOS BENDIGA!

fifteen :: Bill Jenkins

Bill Jenkins – fifteen

AFCRShowGuest-BillJenkins-03262015-164-225Pastor Bill Jenkins, founder and Senior Pastor of the Church of A.C.T.S., is a seasoned prophet whom God is raising up, in the last of the last days, to tear down the devil’s strongholds, and to bring hope to the hopeless.

As a seventeen-year-old with a strong passion for baseball, Bill Jenkins had an opportunity to sign a professional contract, but it was only three days before his 18th birthday when Jenkins had an encounter with God, which completely changed his life and future.

Instead of seeking success through baseball, Jenkins became a youth pastor and traveled the United States preaching the gospel. Later, Jenkins attended Christ for the Nations Bible College in Dallas, Texas, where he graduated in 1990. That is when God spoke to Pastor Bill again, and told him to go to the heart of America to get the spiritual heart pumping and the blood flowing. Thus, Jenkins traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana where he set in motion the Church of A.C.T.S., a spirit-filled church sitting on 34 acres on Indianapolis’ South side.

Among his many accomplishments, Pastor Bill Jenkins has worked with the Mayor of Indianapolis and other city officials in effort to reduce crime, and earned the Mayor’s Community Service Award. He has organized large events at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and the Indian State Fairgrounds to unite the churches of Indianapolis, and has been recognized as a “Man of Distinction” by the Indiana Minority Business Magazine.

Aside from his professional life, God has also called Bill Jenkins to be a husband to his wife, Britain Jenkins and a father to his three sons, Bryce, Brock and Brady. Anyone will find that Bill Jenkins is a model of what a godly man looks like, not only in the pulpit, but also as a head in the family; he also makes time to coach his sons’ baseball, football and basketball teams, among many other duties in his life. Pastor Bill Jenkins is a man of God with a prophetic word for our nation.

Isaiah 38:4-6: “Then the word of the LORD came to Isaiah: “Go and tell Hezekiah, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city” (NIV).
