The Work of Faith


Scripture Meditation: Romans 12:3, Hebrews 11:1, Matthew 7:22-23, John 6:29, John 17:3, 1 John 5:3-4, Romans 10:17

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:8-10

God gives to all believers in Jesus Christ a measure of faith to accomplish His Will and  to do His Work. As believers, we cannot accomplish more than what He gives us to do. (Romans 12:3).

Our personal faith is in Him to do the work because apart from Him we can do nothing. To the extent of our personal faith and the  measure of faith given, we are able to accomplish His Will; bringing others to faith through the power of His gospel message.

The fruit of the work of faith is eternal, while the fruit of our own work is futile. (Matthew 7:22-23)
We are expected to do nothing beyond or less than what we are capable of doing through the power of His Holy Spirit.

Faith in the One Who gives a measure of faith to accomplish the task results in eternal rewards and an abundant fruitful life on earth.

It is also the Lord’s work to prepare the way, and make ready the place where we work and sow His seed through His grace. (John 1:14-15, John 6:44)

A heart full of rocks and debris, is not ready to receive the seed of Truth. Therefore, it is the work of the Holy Spirit to plow up every obstacle in the way. Then,  through acknowledgment of the Truth and sincere repentance, the heart is subtle and fertile in receiving and hearing the living Word sown.
(Matthew 13:18-23, John 3:3, Romans 10:17, John 3:7-8)

The Cry of the Innocent

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8-9

I recently attended the movie, “Gosnell”, based on the true story of a late term abortionist who was prosecuted for murder. Although Hollywood, and the media have suppressed the advertisement, it has ranked #9 in box office proceeds. It is in only 673 theatres nationwide, however, even with the suppression and limitations, it is making an impact on those who view it. Gosnell was convicted by a pro-choice jury who after hearing the horrific details of what abortion entails changed to pro-Life.
The reason the liberal democrats fought Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation with lies and slander, was their fear he would judge base on the constitution instead of legislating their liberal ideology. They fear by interpreting the constitution rightly, instead of legislating from the bench, Roe vs Wade could possibly be overturned. The democrats receive funds from Planned Parenthood and abortion advocates. Their mantra is “Women’s Rights”.
Most Democrats are in step with Obama’s stance to protect women’s rights to an abortion and to give no rights or protection to the child who survives one.

While as a state Senator for Illinois, Obama advocated for the right to kill a baby who survives an abortion. His argument in the 2003 vote against Illinois’s Born-Alive Infants Protection bill was as follows:
“Number one, whenever we define a previable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a child, a nine-month-old child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute.”

Legal abortion is not safe for anyone, including women. The procedure is unnatural and with the slaughter of the unborn child many women suffer emotionally, physically and spiritually in the aftermath.
Many will not go and see what women and unborn children suffer through abortion, as they stick their head in the sand, but just as the German people during the aftermath were made to visit the horror of the concentration camps and bury the dead, there will be a time of repentance and mourning over the millions of innocent children snatched from their mothers’ womb.  Abortionists and their advocates depend on our complacency and refusal to acknowledge and look at what is happening behind closed doors of Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills.
Halloween is a time when movie goers seek to be entertained by films of horror and witchcraft. Yet, the true horror and evil is taking place everyday in abortion clinics across our land.

It’s not too late for America, unless we continue to vote those in office who advocate the slaughter of innocent human life even when they survive an abortion by a butcher’s hand.
A doctor is one who makes an oath to preserve and protect life not destroy it. Legal abortion or illegal abortion is still murder.

We use to be a nation who protected the innocent, however , there are legislators who will do whatever they have to do in order to maintain their power, while depending on the votes of felons, criminals, the ignorant and even illegal immigrants.

“Do whatever you have to do to be elected, baby”, said Nancy Pelosi. And that is exactly what the liberals are doing with no moral compass but with their philosophy remains steadfast – “The end justifies the means.”. Therefore, lying,  harassing, and slandering who oppose their view which threatens their power,  will always be the means they will use.

You are being called to God’s voice for the innocent by praying and voting during these midterm elections to shift the House and the Senate to a Republican Majority in order to protect our elected President and to place Judges with integrity back on our Supreme Court.
Speak up for the innocent by your vote and your prayers. Your freedom and the preservation of our nation depend on it.
About the movie, Gosnell

Heed the Trumpet Calls to Prayer


God’s Trumpet Call

“Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our God will fight for us!” Nehemiah 4:20

Trumpet Call 1: Presidential Election: Praise the Lord! He Heard our Prayers!

Trumpet Call 2: Judge Kavanaugh’s Confirmation: Praise the Lord! He Heard our Prayers!

Trumpet Call 3: Midterm Elections  (A Call to Vote) – Replace the unrighteous with the righteous in Christ Jesus- Prayer: A Majority of God’s People in Congress and the Senate.

If it appears it is our enemy which has occupied the house, let us do what Jesus told us to do and pray for them so their hearts may be changed. Matthew 5:45-46

“So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6

ViewPastor Brunson Prays for President Trump.

Our country founded upon the promise of liberty through faith in God and His Son, Jesus Christ has approached a turning point as a result of prayer. When Vice President Pence quoted this scripture in his recent speech, referencing the need for prayer, he left out one important phrase, “turn from their wicked ways”.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

King David who reigned over Israel asked God to search his heart to reveal any wicked ways. He knew his prosperity and hope for himself and God’s people was dependent on faith in a righteous God who seeks obedience to His commandments. He also believed in the compassionate God who loves and desires to forgive and also to heal. Psalm 139:23-24

First, let us ( those in Christ Jesus ) pray for ourselves to be once again revived by God’s Holy Spirit, confessing our sins while abstaining from the ways of this world. Then we will know how to pray for revival in this land. True worship and prayer is directed to God the Father, through God the Son, Jesus Christ (His atoning blood) by God the Holy Spirit’s guidance based on the Word of God. John 4:23

Second, Let us pray for revival to come into the White House among the leaders of our nation, to bring about conviction and conversion by God’s Holy Spirit; praying for the infilling and anointing of God’s Holy Spirit; His Presence fill the White House and all branches of our government. 1 Timothy 2:1-2

Thirdly, Let us pray the conviction and conversion of God’s Holy Spirit take place in our educational institutions among the leaders , teachers and then the students across our land. Restore prayer and the teaching of God’s Word.
Let us not cease from praying until the Coming of the Lord. James 5: 7-8,16

Fourthly, let us pray for our families and friends and especially those who do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior as we abstain from the world without compromise and walk in the light. 1 John 1:7, 2 Peter 3:9, James 1:27

There are spiritual forces in high places working against the restoration and revival of God’s righteous influence, while perverting justice and promoting lawlessness. Please pray Psalm 35 for our present United State’s administration. It will not be through politics, knowledge or by any secular force the Body of Christ and our nation will be restored back to God, except through prayer. The biblical resources I have noted will teach you why and how to pray. Ephesians 6:12

Pray the hearts of women would turn towards their children and their position restored as protector of the womb and builder of their homes. Isaiah 49:15

Ask for the help of the Holy Spirit to guide you in prayer.
There is no greater work to do then to pray so the Lord will work to bring down the evil spiritual forces which have invaded our lives, ravaged our children, our homes and our land. Romans 8:26

Please commit with me in consistent prayer.This is the Trump Card that brings about God’s victory every time.

God is answering our prayers, with His trumpet, the call to prayer has come. He is rebuilding the wall of protection, while exposing the enemy through prayer. Our weapons of warfare are not carnal but are spiritual bringing down strongholds and wickedness in high places; everything that works against God’s Truth and righteousness.

2 Corinthians 10:4, Isaiah 54:17

God has begun His restoration process through prayer. It will not be done by any might or power but only through His Holy Spirit in response to our ( those called by His Name) prayer. Don’t let the enemy distract you from this important task.
The Lord, Himself will route out the enemy within, and abroad when we call upon Him in prayer. Deuteronomy 31:8

Blessed be the Name of the Lord Who has sent His Son, Jesus Christ and defeated the enemy forevermore! Colossians 1:13-14, Hebrews 2: 14-15

Please read Nehemiah 1-6 and Psalm 35, Isaiah 45 with meditation and prayer.

Have you heard God’s call to join the spiritual battle through prayer?
