The True Spirit of Christmas

If you were able to attend the annual Zoe family Christmas celebration on Wednesday, December 23, 2015 you did not leave disappointed. From the creative and comedic host D’onna, to the dance performance by the talented Serena, the song stylings of little miss Janya and all of the children from children’s church, as well as the community interaction… It was a night of laughs, memories, entertainment, sharing, and giving thanks. The talent in the Zoe house was amazing.

Santa and the lovely Mrs. Clause were also able to make an appearance. After performances and singing together Santa gave out gifts to the all of the children, teenagers, under 30, mothers, pastoral staff, and community. As some received a token of the churches appreciation they shared some of their accomplishments this year, what they would accomplish next year, and future goals. It was truly a blessing unto the community and just one of the many ways Bishop and his family continue to pour into the community, and show their appreciation and spirit of constant giving.

The last event on the program was the giving of the white elephant gifts. The term “white elephant” refers to an extravagant but burdensome gift that cannot be easily disposed. Members of the community wrapped and brought in an unused item in their possession they wish to give away. Each participant came to the front and by looking and feeling on the gifts they determined who they would swap and exchange gifts with. Everyone opened their gifts and were pleasantly surprised. There were beautiful bags, jewelry, makeup, vases, and more, which surprisingly really fit everyone’s character. This is sure to be a continued tradition.

The night commemorated as everyone that came out was able to eat and continue to laugh and celebrate the holiday as a family.

From our community to yours, continue to carry the spirit of Christmas and have a blessed New Year!

Take a Risk
Taking Chances, Taking Risk

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Roman 12:2

If you want to shrink something, you must first allow it to expand. If you want to get rid of something, you must first allow it to flourish. If you want to take something, you must first allow it to be given. This is called the subtle perception of the way things are. This is by Tao Te Ching. When you have big shoes to fill there is no going back. I heard your name in the spirit, and the spirit told me to tell you that your choice matters, it is a word that allows yes and the word that makes things possible. Your choices means taking risk and taking a leap of faith on the things that you want to do. Your choices will always matter in your life that is why you have to make sure of the things that you have to make. There are choices that will lead you into greater things.

I hear the word of the Lord say to choose you this day. For I set before you an opportunity to make choices that will be a game changer in your life saith the Lord. You are coming into a season that your choices will lead you into a new life, and you will find yourself facing new opportunities in the days that lie ahead saith the Lord. You will have the right to stand on your own feet, and you will begin to discover that the power of choice was the gift that I gave to you the moment you set foot on the planet. You have not always used this power wisely or been aware of the gift that I have given unto you. However, this is the day that I open up your eyes and cause you to discover the opportunity that is in your possession, and I will cause you through the power of your tongue to begin to behold a new picture that you will begin to design for your life saith the spirit of Almighty God.

You have the right and the capability to transform your life through the choices that you make. No matter when and what the circumstances, you have the capability to take risk and grab the opportunities that come your way. Sometimes it is just hard for you to make decisions or to choose on the choices that you have because you are afraid to take risks. You are afraid to jump on something that you do not see. Life is about taking chances and making choices. To be able to make decisions even if the choice that you have is hard to choose, take time to think and do not be impulsive and what you are going to do. Take full responsibility and be in charge of your life.

I invite you today to do a faith act by receiving your personal prophecy. It is important that you respond promptly because I want to continue doing the prophetic work that I’ve started around your situation. It is not every day that a person gets to meet a prophet. You are blessed because you have a prophet today . This your next step so that I can start this colorful prophetic word all about your personal life.

Integrity
Preservation of Integrity

And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matthew 28:18

The preservation of integrity is something that not many people can do easily. However, when I thought of all you today, it was easy to write this message to you. I began to discover that the power of preservation lies within your ability to begin to feel the power of God within you moving you forward into a time that is ready to exist for you. Often times, people tend to say things they do not mean, or neglect to put much thought into their words and subsequent actions. This is what makes integrity such a rare but admirable trait. All people want to be thought of as admirable, but not everyone is willing to commit to their word. In order to call yourself a person of high integrity, you must live up to moral codes, including the fulfillment of one’s promises.
It would help to keep in mind how your identity is tied to your integrity and your word. Knowing this, you will be more careful about the way you deal with others. I hear the word of the Lord saying that I am bringing you to a profound place in a position of great power. For this is the power you have prayed for and the place that you have longed to be. I the Lord your God are now awakening in you the power and the truth of your own word. This will bring you to a new place of existence and cause you to stand in a new place of power in the earth saith the spirit of God.
Everyone wants to like him or herself. If you want to be proud of who you are, become a person who is worth being proud of. Becoming someone you can admire starts woodworking on how well you can live up to the promises you’ve made both to other people and yourself. If someone breaks his or her promise, his or her credibility as a person is put into question. How can you make a stand for yourself when you do not even value your own word? How can you become respectable if you have not learned to respect yourself by being true to what you say? Keeping a promise can be tricky for some people, however not for you. Even though this is something that is very important for any person’s sense of self, it is often taken for granted. You must remember how important your word is and how it should not be thrown around without care. Otherwise, you’re very identity will also be constructed carelessly and thrown around. I want you to go ahead and receive a free written prophecy which will make you wise in this season, that you are about to see:

That the word of Lord will become life enriching as the prophetic word will be spoken into your life. It will bring you into a life enhancing experience and personal growth. It will be a golden opportunity for you to discover the next steps that the Holy Spirit will have you to take.
When I get your request for the power of prophecy to come over to your life, you’ll feel seven things about to take place in your life. You’ll feel great about yourself. You feel as good as you look. You’ll look as good as you feel. Imagine the possibilities. Discover your hidden talents. Remove mental blocks to success. Turn stress to your advantage. It is vital that I hear from you today so that your faith can be demonstrated. Your life will never be the same because if you trust me; once you hear your word of prophecy, you will be satisfied and amazed to know how God is transforming you completely. This will make you confident, full of belief and satisfied about the outcome to your situation.

CHALLENGES AHEAD
Face the challenges

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not to say can; struck down, but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8 – 9

Taking a stand can be unpopular, but faith will bring your justification. Before I give you the lesson for the day I need to ask you some personal questions because of the next season I see you are about to walk in. Often times when God was to move a man for one season to the next, he asked him a question. The response to the question will determine how ready the next season is prepared to have you stand for the next season.
What are your challenges in life that you encounter as you take a stand?
How do you overcome these challenges?
When trials come your way, how do you embrace it?
How do you manage to accept the bad with the good that you expect?
I hear the Lord saying get ready for I am making you a new individual of greatness in boldness because you are not afraid to face to challenges of your day. I see greatness around you but it is important for you to see it for you. I am reminded of one of the women of the year named by Time magazine was Corazon Aquino, a former president of the Republic of the Philippines and a woman who for the good fight, standing firm against all the challenges that she faced in life. Aquino used to be a plain housewife who does not want to be involved in politics not until her husband was killed fighting for democracy. She took a stand not just for herself but also for the benefit of an entire nation.
When Aquino became the president, criticisms, riots and cool attempts are just few of the challenges that she faced, yet she did not flee from any of it. She managed to face and embrace every challenges, big or small and kept her stand. Aquino is just one of the many who took a difficult stand and position in life. Some people find it easy to take a stand while others find it hard. However, taking a stand is not really a big thing; if one easily falls down is a challenge come in. Challenges are inevitable, and he can either strengthening you or break you. You are to face and embrace failure and sacrifices without giving up. Keep in mind that the strength of a building can only be tested and proven by how a standstill despite the changing and challenging seasons.

To take a stand is to enjoy the success that it brings and also to endure the pain and failures that goes with it. Riots and criticisms may arise as you have taken the stand but remember that you are not a loser when you cannot withstand such things. We only become losers when we give up. It is very important that you get this lesson right now and right here. Challenges are inevitable in life and when it comes, we must be ready for it. However ready or not, we have to face it. So, take your stand and face everything that it brings to your life. I am now requesting that you take on a faith action and face the challenge of the right now. Go ahead and fill up the form for you to receive a free prophecy reading. When you do this it will bring you into a place of new expectation because the word is only committing you to a future that has not been born yet but is in route to you the moment you have gathered in your mind the seed within your experience.

What stops you from doing this? Because whatever that one thing is that stops you in life it is stopping your will. That one thing has the potential to stop you in every phase of your life. As you receive a word from the Prophet, the power of prophecy will help you achieve the life you want to.

Proper Thinking

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. John 8:58 KJV

“I am what I am, I’m doing very well in my life, and I am thankful to God for that.” These are the words of LL Cool J speaking into his life. I have discovered that he is thankful to God for the life that God has given him. You came across my mind today as I thought of these words from LL Cool J.

Your breakthrough is about to come as you embrace proper thinking. Proper thinking is important in declaring who you are. When you do not have proper thinking, or you do not think about your actions then you will have a bad declaration, and bad situations will occur to yourself. You must not forget that you have a mind to think. You must always think about your actions and how will it affect the people around you as well as yourself.

Proper thinking leads you into right decisions, and you will reap the consequences.I hear the Lord saying that this is the hour that I am realigning your thinking and causing you to see things from a perspective that you have never viewed them before saith the Lord. You are beginning to come through some hurdles, and some hurts but this is the time that I am lifting your faith and causing you to declare a new victory for your life.

Take time to observe yourself. If you feel that you are experiencing the same thing over and over again, then you must think of the things that you decide and do. You must think and observe the things that you do and take time to accept comments from people that will help you see the situation in a different perspective. Proper thinking can save you time and regrets about your decisions.

With proper thinking, you are able to see the decisions that made things easy for you. You will see the decisions that have bad results in your life. Take time to observe yourself and review your actions, with proper thinking you are likely to make right decisions. Proper thinking can save you from having regrets in your future, and you will see that you did not waste your time on something that will not bring good for you.

I am requesting that you get that most holy book and read this holy verse of Scripture. There is going to be a miracle if you will follow the prophet‘s instruction and you will begin to see
some things turn around in four to eight days in your thinking as you meditate on this verse of Scripture over the next several days. As you are doing this, I want you to meditate on this
verse of Scripture that you are now about to read.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just; whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8 KJV

The miracle that awaits you is the miracle that is calling you into your next season. I plead with you now to receive your free written prophecy as your miracle is pleading to come into the next season for your faith to be demonstrated.I will be your guide and I will help your future to become born that has been lying dormant in this season of your life. I will speak a word into your life that will direct to your destiny.

Act now! Watch your future come alive now! God is transforming you completely. This will make you confident, full of belief and satisfied about the outcome to your situation. Let yourself experience the power of prophecy from the most trusted prophet.

Future Past Present
LOOK BACK AND SMILE ON PERILS PAST

To put off your old self, which belongs to former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires? Ephesians 4:22

What is in your future?
How would you like your future to be like?

Was it a point in your life, when you were still unaware of what you want in the future?
Look back, and smile on perils past. The past is a term used to indicate the totality of events which occurred before a given point in time. Things of the past had already gone by or were already over. In essence anything that we may have or not have done in the past cannot be changed anymore.

Who we are in the pass, our actions, thoughts or words are part of the makeup of who we truly are, We cannot change the things which have already happened. What we have already said was said. What we have already done, good or bad, is done.

People with bad backgrounds are scared to accept the realities of the past. The past does not want to punish us because of what we have done. It is in fact a part of who we are and things in the present are just consequences of the action that we have done in the pass. Instead of running away from it, we should embrace who we truly are because of our pasts and it will be easy to correct our life in the present despite any mistake we may have done.

I hear the Lord saying you need not be ashamed of who you were in the pass. In fact every mistake, every heartbreak, every failure and suffering that you have experience has helped shape who you are now and now you are about to a far bigger and brighter future saith the Lord. What you need to do is look back in the past and learn from it saith the Lord. Get from it all the things you know you can use in living in building the life you are ordained to live today.

The past, because it has already been done, makes an imprint in our lives which we cannot completely erase. We can lessen the mark that we make or rewrite the ending of what we want to become no matter how what has been in the pass. Despite all misfortunes and misgiving, we are always given a second chance. Even in the Bible, God continues to give second chances. It is only through a deep understanding of ourselves and our pasts that can give us true freedom.

I am calling you to receive a free written prophecy. The word of prophecy will unlock your ability, will unlock your dreams, will unlock a surprise in your situation.

The word of prophecy will give you the insight you have been waiting for. Your future is ready to be born! The only one that is stopping is you. Act now! Watch your future come alive now! God is transforming you completely. This will make you confident, full of belief and satisfied about the outcome to your situation.

Speak it

Speak It

Don’t suppress the Spirit, and don’t stifle those who have a word from the Master. On the other hand, don’t be gullible. Check out everything, and keep only what’s good. Throw out anything tainted with evil.

1 Thessalonians 5:19-22

God knows what you want to receive from your future. You don’t need to ask. But the Bible tells us to. Why? If God knows already, why do we need to declare these things in our lives? It is because God wants us to experience the privilege of asking the God of the Universe and the joy of receiving what we have asked for.

There is power with speaking things into the universe. It means we believe in them. When we claim God’s blessings, we receive them. Moreover, we do not take for granted the blessings we receive because we knew we specifically asked for these things.

The Bible tells us that when we prophesy that we will receive what we want by asking God, then we are able to see them come to pass. The passage shows that need for us to be direct. There is no need for us to go around in circles. We need to come to the point wherein we know that God would hear us and that He is willing to address our needs. Moreover, we need to come to the point wherein there is boldness to ask God because it means we have already accepted our place as His adopted children.

LIVING AND WORKING IN COMMITMENT

LIVING AND WORKING IN COMMITMENT

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. Psalms 37:5

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speaks boldly of your intentions, and the action speaks louder than the words. It is making the time when there is no time. It is coming through time after time, year after year after year.

 

“Commitment is the stuff character is made of: the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.” Shearson Lehman

 

This is a quote that I found to be very powerful, and as I was reading it, I thought of sharing this to all of you today. All people make commitments, but sometimes most people are committed to make no commitments at all. We are not perfect, sometimes we keep our commitments, and sometimes we don’t. We are at a higher level compared to animals, it is our commitment that makes us different from them. We have the capacity to act consistently depending on the commitments that we made.

The word of the Lord says commitment generates your actions, and as you begin to move forward in commitment, I am going to demonstrate my glory in the things that you will find yourself committing to. As you commit your ways unto me saith the Lord and trust in me, you are going to see me go into action on your behalf.

Our commitments enable us to perform and to push harder even if things are not easy. It is our capacity to commit and makes our existence worth it. Commitment is important. It is a kind of moral condition. It is a terrible thing if you do not know how to make commitments, and it is a good thing if you know how to make commitments. I am asking you to be committed today by receiving your personal prophecy for your life.

There is a prophetic word waiting for you now that I’m going to give that will make you realize that COMMITMENT IS ACTION. The moment one definitely commits oneself, providence moves too. When you are committed, you accept no excuses, just results, you just go and submit yourself. It is always an act not a word. Now are you ready to see what God is about to do for your life today?

I want you now to ask yourself two questions as you are releasing the seed so that I can start your prophecy by the time your question is answered.

1. What is a commitment to you?

2. How important is it to make commitments in what you do and to the people around you?

Your future is ready to be born the only one that is stopping it is you. Act now! Watch your future come alive now! God is transforming you completely. This will make you confident, full
of belief and satisfied about the outcome to your situation.

Living in the Now

In understanding how to live in the “Now” you must learn how to understand how time works and how God has fully designed it for your life and own good.

Time concepts are abstract constructs that man uses to understand time. These paradigms pertain to concepts such as simultaneity and duration as well as physical and psychological time developmental progress. Unlike animals, which are generally perceived as eternally living in the “present” without comprehension of time aspects, such as past and present, man has the ability to compartmentalize experiences and phenomenon into categories.

Human beings are made in such a special way. They are higher than the animals and a little lower than the angels. However, with all the vastness and greatness of the world, the Lord is mindful of us. We have the ability to discern and to use time to our power.

The purpose of God for how we are created can reveal a little something as to why we are created the way we are, different from all other animals. We have created to be like gods. God placed us in charge of the world he created in the sky, the waters, and the earth.

Man could compartmentalize within the general notion of the “time stream”: physical developments can be defined as “happened,” “happening,” or “will happen.” The following discussions elaborate on time concepts generally used by most individuals.

“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.” Carl Sandburg

Bishop Jordan and Zoe Ministries wishes you to understand how to live in the power of the Now. Click here to learn more about it and start applying it to your life today.

Understanding Tithing

The premise of tithing as an expression of grace is three-fold:

First, tithing acknowledges God as the source and owner of all that we possess. Tithing performs a role separate from that of unsystematic giving, which suggests that we believe we own all that we possess. Through tithing we acknowledge that God created our increase.

Second, tithing is a voluntary act of worship. At Bethel Jacob said:

If God will help and protect me on this journey and give me food and clothes, and will bring me back safely to my father, then I will choose Jehovah as my God! And this memorial pillar shall become a place for worship; and I will give you back a tenth of
everything you give me!

If you don’t already, you too should consider tithing — or giving more — as an act of worship. Through this act, you keep your focus on the heavenly Father and testify to His kindness and generosity toward you.

Third, tithing teaches us to put God first. Moses said, “The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives.” Tithing as a systematic, purposeful plan for consistent giving enables you to circumvent the emotions and circumstances that would hinder you from being a faithful steward and, thus, from putting God first in your life. This prioritizing releases you from the tyranny of materialism and clears the channel for God’s additional and abundant blessings.

Start gaining more knowledge about God’s Kingdom and understand His design in your life. When you get your written prophecy you will be capable of living a life of abundance. Finally get your to know God’s Kingdom is truly by speaking to Master Prophet E. Bernard.

A Part of You

25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:25, NIV

When we do something repeatedly it starts to become a part of who we are. If you consistently stick with a certain task. When we do something repeatedly it starts to become a part of who we are. If you consistently stick with a certain task so much so that it becomes almost automatic to you, then you have turned that act into a habit.   It is important to create good habits and practice them. Your daily actions and decisions determine the direction your life is heading towards. The power of prophecy allows you to get prophetic direction by giving you guidance through God’s words.

On the other hand if you do a good deed today but continue your bad habits tomorrow, then your single good trait cannot count as a habit. You must be committed to the habits of the kind of person you want to be. If you feel like doing behaving yourself for a day, let us say for example you choose to wake up early for that day, do not just leave it at that. Make good habits something you do everyday. In this way you will be honing the traits that lead you to excellence.
