Sunday with Marcel & Evelyn Joseph

The best way I can describe Sunday morning and evening is, "WOW"! For those of you who were there you know they ministered to us in song in a most powerful way.

The word that Evelyn gave just prior to them ministering in song was short but powerful. Eulogia was the word she talked about which means blessed. Many of us know about eulogies. What most of us know is that when somebody is eulogized, they are spoken well of. The fact of the matter is that when we bless others we are to speak well of them. What was more awesome about her word was that she led us to understand that when we bless God, we ought to speak well of Him. It's more than saying I bless you Lord. It's telling God how good He is. It's saying, God you're my healer and I bless you for that. You're my provider and I bless you for that. God you're my everything and I bless your name. It's basically us speaking as well of God as we can. What a word!

Marcel came just after they sang and boy what a word he had. Living the life of faith in the flesh. We have to come to the realization that we have been bought at a price by the Lord for His purposes. The reality is that we live in a natural world that's looking to Christians to show some sort of difference because of our claims of the greatness of God. The way we do that is by living by faith in the flesh. Look to Galatians 2:20.

As Marcel kept teaching all kind of revelation was flowing. I believe many were coming back to a sense of God really wanting to use them in the earth realm as a demonstration of His greatness. When we yield to the Lord by lining our thoughts up with the thoughts of God we have a greater capacity to walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lusts of our flesh.

We make things we see in the Bible seem to be so complicated. When in fact the Lord has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. Our responsibility is to get the word of the Lord in us so our souls aren't overwhelmed by the lusts of our flesh. The old saying is "garbage in, garbage out." The same is true when it comes to the word. When the word goes in the word will come out.

Living by faith in the flesh is for you and me. It's time we take God at His word regarding who He has called us to be. God's done all He's going to do. Now it's up to us to seek Him on a daily basis to find out what He's blessing and get in the flow of His blessing for the day He's made.

I'll closee with this statement. Hearers of the word and doers of the word are two different kind of people. What kind of person do you want to be? The best thing is to be a faithful hearer and a faithful doer of the word of the Lord.

Stay blessed,

Thanks and God Bless You!
