The Martial Arts Comes Back to the MMA.

Good Morning Church Body,

The above pics was from our first class at Midtown on a weekly MMA class instructed by brother Cliff Hanoch from the Britton & Broadway Life Church Campus.

Every Tuesday, 5:30pm. If you are interested, please email me at:

Now let us open the Word of God as we step into His presence.

Isaiah 40 ESV (Where 40 means a period of trials or testing)
“28Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
29He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
31but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.”

The word “wait” in verse 31 has been translated interchangeably in other Bible versions as “hope” and “trust”.

I say this, because this is a clear indictment to us believers of who we “wait, trust and hope” in.

If you were to wait on me, you will wait forever.

If we wait on people or creation, we may never get the validation or encouragement from them to do anything.

But those who “wait” on the Lord, WILL renew their strength, mount up with wings like eagles, etc. etc.

Don’t even wait on your home, or the local church!

Wait on God.

And where your love language is, is where He will speak to you intimately, loud and clear.

If your spouse is truly one with you, then he or she will patiently wait with you.

The fault or the deception that Satan has on mankind is that he will intercept God’s glory everytime if we allow him to.

For once, let us give honor where honor and credit is due. To focus on the Creator and author vs creation and His writings alone.

Satan’s heart defined.

Isaiah 14 NIV
“12How you have fallen from heaven,

morning star, son of the dawn!

You have been cast down to the earth,

you who once laid low the nations!

13You said in your heart,

“I will ascend to the heavens;

I will raise my throne

above the stars of God;

I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,

on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon.

14I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;

I will make myself like the Most High.”

15But you are brought down to the realm of the dead,

to the depths of the pit.”

Once again, don’t allow Satan to sell us what God has already paid for in full on Calvary.

In His most Holy name, Jesus Christ.

Your brother in our war against sin.

Amen.

I was born an "Evangelista", I didn't choose to be in the ministry, the ministry chose me. However, I did choose to be a nurse and I have been a nurse for over 20 years and thankful that I can help the sick in some way daily.

    1. I hope that means you enjoyed the content. lol Many times God gives us sight on issues so that we may be led by compassion vs. judgement. Regretfully, I have used sword more than my shield on the believer. However, its never too late. I asked God to give me another chance to produce love and mercy and for me, it has started here in archiving my thoughts on this simple blog.

      Remain blessed,
      Ray
