Freely Receive, Freely Give!
The Lord has blessed me with the ability to share, the ability to write as a gift, and He has shared His messages with me. Shockingly enough, the only thing that I have had to pay Him is to accept Him, follow Him and His teachings and to share those messages and teachings with others. Some have asked my permission to use some of the material the Lord has given me, while others have asked how much I charge. If the material is on my website or on my social media page it is free to all to use as they have need. I don't charge as I know other preachers do because the material I get and publish is from the Lord and it comes free to me therefore it is free to all to use. I pray those that do use it are blessed as the Lord has blessed me.
I cannot and will not condone those preachers that pray for you for a price, or provide a healing service for you for a price and especially sell you products with false promises for a price. To me it makes a mockery out of the gifts God has given you, and thus it mocks God. Allow me to share the following verses with you.
And it happened that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and dysentery. Paul went in to him and prayed, and he laid his hands on him and healed him.
Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
Nowhere does it say that you have to pay anyone to be healed! You can't by the power of God; look to Acts 8:9 to see the sorcerer's profession of faith. For all of the charlatans out their stop claiming you are something you are not, stop stealing from the poor. We as Christians have been given the gift from God and His Son has empowered us through the Spirit.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

The Only Way to Heaven!
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
It has to be this way because only Jesus Christ died on the Cross for the sins of the world. In a selfless act, Jesus was a propitiation for us taking the punishment meant for us upon Himself; and in doing so He alone bridged the gap between us and God. A man you didn’t even know died on the Cross for us so that we might be saved.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
You can’t wish your way into heaven, you can’t buy your way into heaven, you can’t even work your way into heaven.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
That grace comes through believing in Jesus Christ; who He is and what He has done. I can’t save you, your pastor can’t save you; you most assuredly can’t save yourself, only Jesus Christ can save you.
So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
Only Jesus Christ can save you because only Jesus Christ died on the Cross for us. The Bible also teaches us that we have to confess it!
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9
Let’s not stop there, you also have to repent of your sins; in other words you have to stop sinning and turn to Jesus Christ!
I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
Only a just and loving God could come up with a plan so simple; all praise honor and glory are His.
Have you excepted Jesus as your Lord?

Believing in Jesus Christ is a key to our salvation but it is also a key to our personal intimate relationship to our Lord and Savior. We have to believe in who He was, what He has done and what He continues to do to this very day; what He continues to do for you and for me.
Over 2000 years ago a man we didn't even know came down from heaven to earth to pay a fine for a sin that He didn't commit; Jesus Christ was sinless. What He did is pay our fine for us, He took the penalty meant for us on Himself; Jesus Christ became a propitiation for us and died on the cross for the sins of the world. After being taken down from the cross He was placed in a tomb for three days but the tomb could not hold Him, the apostles found the tomb empty. In such Jesus defeated the works of the devil so that all that call upon His name and believe in Him shall be saved.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Jesus Christ now sits on the right hand side of the throne of God and mediates for us, making a way for us to approach God's throne of grace. That is why when we pray we pray in the name of Jesus Christ.
Let me take it a little further; as many of you know I don't just believe in the power of prayer; I believe in the power of Jesus Christ to hear and answer my prayers. Sometimes I don't get the answer that I want but I get an answer. I don't just believe, I know that Jesus hears and answers my prayers; I know that He mediates on my behalf. I know that no matter what I do, even if it's wrong; not that I intentionally go out and sin but when I have committed a sin, I have a Lord and Savior that I can turn to to forgive me of my sin. I have had way to many things happen through answered prayer that just cannot be explained any other way; nothing troubles me because I have a Lord and Savior that is bigger than this world.
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.
I believe, do you?

A Fragrant Aroma!
God is always with us and God will never leave us! When you add to this...
No weapon formed against you shall
We start to lose our fear of man, and begin to rely upon, depend upon our Lord and little by little the confidence builds.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
When we become totally submissive to the Lord, totally dependent upon Him, we become conquerors...
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Nothing can stop us, because nothing can stop the Lord...
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
1 John 4:4
We overcome the world and then the Lord disperses us as a fragrance. We become the light in a darkened world. As we spread the gospel message more hear the word and more accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior, we become a fragrance that continues to spread.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
2 Corinthians 2:14-15
