Today I thank GOD for all my trials, tribulation, persecutions, temptations, and sufferings of life, because they made me into the man of GOD I am!
I thank GOD for the enemy, my enemies, and people who made themselves my enemies, because you birth strength in me, and you are the weight resistance I need in my life to grow stronger!
I thank GOD for my haters, and people who hate me for JESUS name sake, for you are the proof I am in the way, and I am on the right path!
I thank GOD for the pastor of Mighty Fortress International, for had you not kicked me out of YOUR CHURCH BUILDING for the sake of religion, religious lies, the traditions of men, and church politics, then I would not have found JESUS my real pastor!
I thank GOD for the other churches and pastors who kicked me out of their religious buildings for the sake of the truth, because whether you know it or not, you are the reason I sought after the real JESUS CHRIST with my whole heart, mind, and soul!
I thank GOD for my life, my whole life, the drug dealing, the addictions, the womanizing, the gangbanging, the murder case, the back and forth to the penitentiaries, being a four time felon, being shot and almost killed, and being a career criminal, for now I understand my life is my life, my path is my path, and I had to travel this road to my path, just to find my JESUS/GOD!
(Isaiah 30:20-21) And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not your teachers be removed into a corner any more, but your eyes shall see your teachers: And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left.
(Zechariah 13:8-9) And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, says the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
(Isaiah 43:1-4) But now thus says the LORD that created you, O Jacob, and he that formed you, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.
For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for you. Since you was precious in my sight, you have been honourable, and I have loved you: therefore will I give men for you, and people for your life.
(Jeremiah 12:5-6) If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, wherein thou trust in, they wearied you, then how wilt you do in the swelling of Jordan? For even your own brethren, and the house of your father, even they have dealt treacherously with you; yes, they have called a multitude after you: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto you.
(John 15:18-21) JESUS SAYS, If the world hate you, you know that it hated me before it hated you.
If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
(John 16:1-4) JESUS SAYS, These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the church synagogues: yes, the time comes, that whosoever kills you will think that he does God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
(Luke 21:14-19) JESUS SAYS, Do not settle it therefore in your hearts, nor meditate before hand what you shall speak or answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your enemies or adversaries shall be able to gainsay nor resist. And you shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And you shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.
But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess you your souls.
I am feeling very thankful today!…………………….
