1 MESSAGES FROM FACE BOOK FRIENDS OF EMMINISTRIES Sad? Pray Worried? Pray Overthinking? Pray Hurting? Pray Giving up? Pray Depressed? Pray Struggling? Pray Life does not begin at 40. Life begins with knowing Jesus. Don t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians.4:6 When joy has escaped you-it s time to worship When life has crushed you-it s time to worship When the devil has robbed you of your happiness-it s time to worship When Satan has surrounded you or circumstances have surrounded you with things that bring you down-it s time to worship. Some people want others to succeed. Some people want others to fail. Practice wishing others well. Never allow your heart to be governed by jealousy or envy. James.3:14-16, 1 Corinthians.13:4, Romans.13:13, Proverbs.14.30, Proverbs.27:4, Philippians.2:3 If God answers your prayers, He s increasing your faith. If He delays, He is increasing your patience. If He does not answer your prayer, He is preparing the Best for you. Going to Hell is not an accident. It is a choice.

2 Fame is temporary Money is temporary Life is temporary But Jesus-He is eternal. Morals have changed Churches have changed. Society has changed. People have changed. But God s word remains the same. I used to think love was shaped like a heart. But it is actually shaped like a cross. Hell is for all those people that died believing they are a good person and thinking they didn t need Jesus Christ. Read the Bible to be wise. Believe the Bible to be safe. Practice the Bible to be Holy. I had rather stand with God and be judged by the world, than to stand with the world and be judged by God. Don t worry. God is never blind to your tears, never deaf to your prayers, and never silent to your pain. He sees, He knows, and will deliver you. Religion does not save people! Jesus does.

3 When I am alone, God is my comforter. When I am nothing, God is my everything. When I am sad and lonely, God is my song and joy. When I am weak and helpless, God is my strength. In happy moments, praise God. In difficult moments, seek God. In quiet moments, worship God. In every moment, thank God. I fell in love with Jesus because he loved me when I couldn t love myself. A preacher was asked once why he was preaching about Hell. His reply was Because I m not going there and I don t want you to go there either. Life is short. Death is sure. Sin the cause. Christ is the cure. Don t judge anyone unless you are perfect yourself. A person cannot be genuinely happy with a heart full of envy. Instead of envying others, we should remain thankful for what we have and rejoice when God blesses them. PREACHERS POINT: I would rather have thousands say to me at judgement, we heard you preach and you hurt our feelings than to have just one lost soul to say I heard you preach, but you didn t tell me the truth. Forgiveness is the best form of love. It takes a strong person to say I m sorry and even a stronger person to forgive.

4 Beauty is not a guarantee to marriage. Falling sick does not mean you are about to die. Getting rich is not the definition of prosperity. Building a nice home is not enjoying luxury. Sleeping on an expensive bed does not bring you sound sleep. Driving a new car is not a guarantee that you are going to reach where you are going. Wearing best clothes does not mean they are fitting you. Owning a family doctor does not guarantee permanent health. Being highly educated is not a sign of wisdom. Marring a rich guy does not guarantee a happy marriage. Winning an argument does not mean that you are correct. Whatever is done without the merit of Heaven is fake and temporary. He who builds without God is building for nothing; and he who watches over a city without God, watches in vain. Not everything is possible with men, yet everything is possible with God. Involve God in everything you do. When you are stressed, pray. When you are depressed, pray. When you are worried, pray. When you are happy, pray. When things are good, pray. Never stop praying. A true disciple does not consider Christianity a part-time commitment. He has become a Christian in all parts of his life. He has reached the point where there is no turning back. Some of the greatest treasure come in paper-the HOLY BIBLE. Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible. I have a great need for Christ. I have a great Christ for my needs. The Bible may hurt you with the truth, but it will never comfort you with a lie. A lie doesn t become truth, wrong doesn t become right, and evil doesn t become good just because the majority accepts it. God sometimes removes people from your life to protect you, don t run after them.

5 You can t earn God s forgiveness. You can t pay for God s forgiveness. You can only receive it by faith through God s grace and mercy. Lord, purify me. Search my heart and remove anything that is not of you. Lord, encourage me. I need this to keep going. Lord, comfort me, help me remember you are in control. Lord, strengthen me, renew my spirit each day. Anxiety happens when we think we have to figure everything out. Turn to God. He has a plan. The reason I thank God so much? It s because I know I deserve NOTHING and he still gives me EVERYTHING. 5 WAYS TO BE HAPPY. 1. Free your heart from hatred. 2. Free your mind from worries. 3. Live simply and keep on smiling. 4. Expect less. 5. Keep a deep relationship with God. Get a Job Which will not get you distant from God Where you can use a talent God gave you That will not destroy your Christian testimony Which will allow you to serve God wherever you are #Your job is not your job. It is God who give you the ability to work. Prayer is the most powerful against trials, the most effective medicine against sickness and the most valuable gift to someone we care for.

6 THE WORLD I m a good person I have a good heart It s about me first I can do anything I love money I m lucky I m nice until you cross me Do what makes you happy Think positive Karma(my fate) Many ways to God Believe in yourself CHRISTIANS Only God is good I have a wicked heart God, others, me last Without God, I can t I love God I m blessed I forgive you Do what pleases God Think Godly The will of God Jesus is the only way Believe in Jesus A doctor can save your life, a lawyer can defend your life, a soldier can give you a peaceful life, BUT JESUS CAN GIVE YOU EVERLASTONG LIFE Worry doesn t change anything, but trusting in God changes everything. All of your days have been written in God s book. When you go through a disappointment, don t stop on that page. Stay on course. Keep believing. You may be tired, discouraged and frustrated, but don t give up on your future. OUR GOD IS FAITHFUL. Regardless who is president, JESUS IS KING. A flood of favor is coming your way Do your best, God will do the rest. Never judge people by their past. People learn. People change. People move on. YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD Invite Jesus into your heart by being humble, by showing love, and by being patient and kind. For your body is the temple where the Lord has promised to meet you. The vail has been torn (Luke.23:45). By the blood of Jesus you have access to the Most Holy Place (Hebrews,10:19-20). Then look within your heart to that Holy Place where Jesus meets you, where His covenant of love is made, where all His promises are kept, and where you can receive strength, health, healing mercy and grace. Look within! The kingdom of God is within you (Luke.17:21)! You are The Temple (2 Corinthians.6:16).
