Isaiah 6:1 says
It was in the year King Uzziah died that I saw the Lord. He was sitting on a lofty throne, and the train of his robe filled the Temple
Now naturally we now this was Isaiah call to ministry and he happily accepted in verse 8 after humbling himself before the Lord ...
Now before you can get to him being the '' Gospel prophet'' we have to realize what he had blocking him ALL this time........
Text: Isaiah says ''it was the year KING uzziah died that he saw the Lord''
Isaiah had finally realized that the little king he was serving was keeping him from the manifestation of his purpose..
My question to you is plain..... What King(s) are keeping you from your Godly purpose??????
We serve little kings of......
Jobs- because we make a decent wage and live comfortably this comes first
A man/woman- thinking that what they give us makes us happy and dependent upon them
Material thing- boasting upon as if they make you the person you are trying to be something your not
And the sad part about it is that ''society'' says this is life and we agree with the same people doent do anything to help us..........
BUT i come to tell you if that Uzziah doesn't die or you don't kill it or put GOD first! The most important part of you will be condemned and lost with no direction .......your SOUl
I need you to be able to see GOD for being the reason you have a good Job, money, cars, etc.... but that's just the beginning when you see him for who he is all these things want matter but what will matter is you ''GODLY PURPOSE''
''REMOVE YOUR KING''

Then we start believing that whenever we do something wrong if i just go to the Church I will be absolved,,
Yes God wants us to honor places of worship that are built unto him, he want us to fellowship with other Christians, worship with each other,
come together for the edification of his kingdom YES he wants that.. But he is much more interested inYOU personally then the Building.
He wants to change you and refresh the relationship you should have with him. He wants you to be Intimate with him, to desire his presence to meditate on his words and carry out his tasks.....If you read your bible Thats why in the O.T he let the Tabernacle be destroyed by the Phillistines, he let Solomons Temple get destroyed by the Babylonians, And also the second temple after the post-exile be destroyed by the Romans He wants you to realize its not about fancy Words, nice ''preacher voices'' its about your body he wants as a living sacrafice for him
He is about builing a relationship with you, The lesson in the Old Testament in my view is ....
When your right with God you will get the blessing and the covenent
But when you sin against god the curses will come.
If you know the stories you see that God was with them but they continued to do what they felt and then run back to God when it fails
''When will they/you learn''

''Wherever there is jealousy and rivalry, there is disorder and every kind of evil.''
Ministry- is The act of serving
So How can I serve when I'm looking for ''ME'' to be exalted and not ''GOD''
1st Peter 5:6
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.
Just because we see other ministries being exalted (lifted up) by God's Favor the human element in us wants to covet or have what they have. We see there names being called, being invited to minister, and sometime making a living off of what they do Just because they are in there ''season'' But we have no Idea what test/trials in Life they had to get that favor. but whatever it was God was pleased with them and blessed them.
If its to build ''YOU'' God will not bless it
If it's to Build ''GOD'' there a good chance of it happening. God wants to use you for his purpose!!!!!!!!
Dont go through life tring to get something from God spend it Giving back to him and his people... And Dont Covet another ministry because they are in an exalted state be humble and ..............WAIT UNTIL YOUR SEASON........ lanierJ....

It is vitally important that every man provide for himself and for his family. Men are the number one bread winners of the home. He is in harms way of jeopardizing the family security, wealth, and health by not being responsible in this arena. Providing for his families present and future is one of the sure signs of a man taking his rightful place in the home. Providing is his very essence for existence as a man.
Whatever it takes for the family to survive, the man will find a way. Because God has designed the man to provide, he will lead the man to places he need to go to find provision for his family. Man must be responsible enough to move when provision is identified. He must act in a way that that will always portray his ultimate responsibility, that being the provider.
When men are not providers for the home, the home become unsecured, insecure, and incomplete. The Home is in jeopardy of being torn by unnecessary pressure, and unreasonable oppression. This is due to the fact, that the head is not in position but is out of position.
Men are called to be mentors to other men, and young boys, by nurturing them to maturity. The Youth of today is without question living in a shortage of good fatherly mentoring. The many mistakes we made as a child should not be implemented over again in our children’s lives. The best teachers are not the experience, but the instruction we put before them. When there are no mentors, then every child is being subjected to destruction without instruction. Give them the chance of a lifetime by spending time with them, in the Word of God, at there school teaching them a trade, bringing the best out of them, empower them to excel far above there greatest dreams. Men who mentor there children are setting them up for success.
Men are designed to be a: Visionary
Men are to be the covering for the family, He is responsible for protecting and shielding them from hurt, harm and danger, He must assume all responsibilities as the amour bearer. He is that spiritual support to the family when circumstances appear without immediate answers. The man becomes a covering of support, comfort and inspiration. This can only occur when the man is submissive to the will of God. The woman should without reservation look for protection through his godly instruction.
As a Man, how can you improve your leadership traits, especially when guiding a family.

Which means something that has been handed down.
And a lot of It isnt biblical but expected.........
Now Iam currently the worship Leader/ & Minister and the church I belong to and there are certain ''traditions'' the new Generation can do without. I hear some of the more seasoned Christians saying things about older song like '' these were the songs that got US over'' and I totally understand that, Those songs meant something to you they ministered to the core of what storm you had in your life, BUT the next Generation knows nothing about those songs.....
We try to incorporate a more contemporary sound (praise/worship) and we are going up against (devotions) apples and oranges, oil and vinegar they dont mix.
Now Its time for the next Generation to gather those songs that get us over our storms in life so accept our music into your world after all we are you children so allow us to have those moment to reflect as you do........

Points to ponder: there Is more to life than just here and now.
1 John 2:17 NKJV
And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Since I was mDe to last forever, what is the one thing I should stop doing and the one thing I should start doing TODAY????
For His mercy endures forever''.

I ordained you a prophet to the nations

1. Eating junk food- over a certain period of time will allow our bodies to deteriorate, high blood pressure, diabetes etc.... and we die sooner than later by not taking care of ourselves
2. Frivolous spending-depletes our funds and enables us to save or invest in our future or children's future
3. Going places we shouldn't- activates the flesh and sometimes makes us compromise our decisions making and we fall victim to numerous things
4. Influential Friends (peer pressure)- almost forces us to compromise who we truly are to ''fit in''
the bible says in psalms 1:1
