Ladies and Gentlemen, WHERE is our FOCUS?

The message of the Cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction!

But we who are being saved know it is the very Power of God.

As the Scriptures say,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and discard the intelligence of the intelligent.”  LINK =
Isaiah 29:14

So where does this leave the philosophers, the scholars, and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made the wisdom of this world look foolish.

Since God in His Wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, He has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe. It is foolish to the Jews, who ask for signs from Heaven. And it is foolish to the Greeks, who seek human wisdom.

So when we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense.

But to those called by God to Salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the Power of God and the Wisdom of God.

This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.  Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you.

Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And He chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.

God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important.

As a result, no one can ever boast in the Presence of God.

God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made Him to be WISDOM itself. Christ made us RIGHT with God; He made us Pure and Holy, and He freed us from sin. Therefore, as the Scriptures say,

“If you want to boast, boast only about the LORD.”

Bible LINK = 1Corinthians 1:18-31


Dear ones, while we witness this world growing darker & colder & lawlessness abounds, we can and should LOOK UP and SEE that our LORD may be coming soon. We need to PREPARE for His coming by filling our lamps with His Holy Spirit OIL!

This means we MUST BE about our Heavenly Father’s BUSINESS!  Luke 2:49

We must proclaim with our mouths, exactly what we BELIEVE in our hearts about His Kingdom Reign over ALL the earth! We know that our daily relationship with God is sustained through PRAYER!  So we PRAY in agreement:

Heavenly Father – Awesome Lord God! We are Your People! We are called by Your Name! We seek Your Very Presence in our lives today! We humble ourselves before You and confess that we have left undone those things that You have instructed us TO DO and we have selfishly done those things that You told us NOT TO DO.

Have mercy upon us, most merciful Lord!

Pardon and Deliver us from the consequences of all our sins!

Examine our hearts Lord and see if there is any wickedness within me!

Most importantly, we will only worship You Lord God-JEHOVAH!

No one else has first priority in our lives! We will seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, His Right Way of living, His Divine Appointments, and share His Love with everyone that will listen to the profound LOVE & Gratitude in our voices!

Almighty God, hear our prayer, HEAL OUR LAND!


Amen and AMEN!
