November's Blessings

Mighty Vessel of God,How are you today? Blessed? Yes, You are. If we know that we are Blessed by God then we will be able to empower others to know that they too are blessed. This month's teaching is simply designed to tear down strongholds, and destroy the yoke of poverty in your life. Let us see how God says we are Blessed. God's Got a blessings with your name on it!!!!!!

Ephes. 1:3 (KJV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: 1. God's blessings are heavenly blessings, not material (v.3). 2. God has chosen us to be holy and blameless (v.4). 3. God has adopted us as children (v.5-6). 4. God has redeemed us;forgiven our sins (v.7). 5. God has given us wisdom and understanding (v.8). 6. God has revealed the mystery of His will to us (v.9-10). 7. God has given us an inheritance, that is, made us the heritage of God (v.11-13). 8. God has sealed us with the Holy Spirit (v.14). All human necessities met. Matthew 6:25-34, esp. 33 All needs provided for. Matthew 5:1-12 Justification. Galatians 3:6-14, esp. 14 Seven great blessings. Ephes. 1:3-14 The Holy Spirit. Galatians 3:13-14

BLESS A Deeper Study for the Holidays.

(1.) God blesses his people when he bestows on them some gift temporal or spiritual (Genesis 1:22; Genesis 24:35; Job 42:12; Psalm 45:2; Psalm 104:24, 35).

(2.) We bless God when we thank him for his mercies (Psalm 103:1-2; Psalm 145:1-2).

(3.) A man blesses himself when he invokes God?s blessing (Isaiah 65:16), or rejoices in God's goodness to him (Deut. 29:19; Psalm 49:18).

(4.) One blesses another when he expresses good wishes or offers prayer to God for his welfare (Genesis 24:60; Genesis 31:55; 1 Samuel 2:20). Sometimes blessings were uttered under divine inspiration, as in the case of Noah, Isaac, Jacob, and Moses (Genesis 9:26-27; Genesis 27:28-29, 40; Genesis 48:15-20; Genesis 49:1-28; Deut. 33). The priests were divinely authorized to bless the people (Deut. 10:8; Numbers 6:22-27). We have many examples of apostolic benediction (2 Cor. 13:14; Ephes. 6:23-24; 2 Thes. 3:16, 18; Hebrews 13:20-21; 1 Peter 5:10-11).

(5.) Among the Jews in their thank-offerings the master of the feast took a cup of wine in his hand, and after having blessed God for it and for other mercies then enjoyed, handed it to his guests, who all partook of it.

Psalm 116:13 refers to this custom. It is also alluded to in 1 Cor. 10:16, where the apostle speaks of the "cup of blessing."

FAVOR - FAVORED See: BLESSED, THE See: BLESS - BLESSINGS See: GRACE See: PROMISE - PROMISES Blessed means being empowered to prosper, Being able to be a blessing to other, When you desire to Bless others it is truly a Kingdom principal of God. We are not blind to the struggles and hardships that the people of God are going through. However, It is He that will answer our prayers to Him , through you and others. Have we asked for what you desire to give. No no Not have we asked you, but have we asked God? Did we decide to ask someone or put up a lay a way, or put it in our pay roll budget? Did we decide that we deserve to be unhappy because of some sin, because we are not worthy of the Yes from our God. Now if you ask Him Lord what do you want me to do for my Family? Lord what do you want me to do for Sista Shana, Pastor and First Lady? Then the provision will be made and you can obey what He tells you to do. In all things Pray for us, inquire of the Lord about us, and give Thanks for us to your God.

When we come in your heart, spirit, or thoughts that is the time to ask God what would you have me do. On the other Hand (Smile) Because of all that is in your heart to do for His people He will make the provision to answer you. To show His Hand to you and us. He is looking for a vessel that will pour when he says pour and to hold when He says Hold. And when we don't do what we were made to do that is when we are placed back on the potters wheel to be broken and re- made into vessels fit for the Masters use. You see He knows all things!!!! There is a thin line between being used by God and doing it because we want to. He teaches us to be led of the Spirit( our spirit man) and not our feelings ( soul man) or our flesh (body). We are not to interfere with the works of the Lord; say He is trying to get your Sister to Ask Him for what she needs, but because you provided for her she will not have to ask Him. This is just an example. Yes she will get it but who will she give the Glory to? She will say my Sister brought My son and I this or that. So if you ask God "

What would you have me to do for My Sister and her Son and He says make sure you get her Son a bed with all the things to put a football theme together for His room then you have answered the prayer that he (her son) said to the Lord and he (her son) will know without a doubt that His God answered him through his Aunt. When you pray and ask God for something? Who will He use to answer your prayer? But someone will answer. Did you ask those people to place money in your Hands or Bless you with what you asked God for? No, that was the Kingdom principal working for you; God told them, led them, provoked them to do His bidding. So you see He can use whomever He chooses be it the Saved that asked Lord what do you want me to do for Them. or the unsaved that said something told me you needed this or to do this. So teach this to your Children. So that they can be led of the Spirit in all things, and so that they will know that God has not Forgotten them.

Matthew 6:25-34 (KJV) Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? [26] Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? [27] Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? [28] And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: [29] And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. [30] Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? [31] Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? [32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. [33] But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. [34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
