Jesus is Lord!

September 15th, 2015

Recently, I have been declaring the Lordship of Christ over any and all circumstances. Jesus said that “All power and all authority has been given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Mt.2818) His jurisdiction of divine power and authority rules over all that occurs in this pre-defined arena. In otherwise, there is nothing in all of heaven and earth over which he does not have the power to rule and exercise His lordship. This means that Jesus is Lord over all circumstances, He is Lord over our past and is Lord over all trouble, sickness and pain. He’s peace covers it all! Even the hardships of life must surrender to the Lordship of His name. Truly, Jesus is Lord over all things, past, present and future . He has made a covenant promise to all of us all that “All things are going to work together for Godwith


The Goodness of the Lord

February 9th, 2015

One of the themes of ministry that the Lord has given me during this season is “The Goodness of the Lord”. The Bible says,“Yea, the Lord will give you that which is good and no good thing will He withold from them that who walk uprightly”. (Ps. 85:12a, Ps. 84:b) Knowing the “The Goodness of the Lord” in the midst of crisis times is what enables us to overcome. David said, “I would have fainted, unless I had believed to see ‘The Goodness of the Lord’ in the land of the living”. (Ps. 27:13) When it comes to seeing “The Goodness of the Lord” in your situation or circumstance, you need not look far, for the Bible says, “The earth is full of “The Goodness of the Lord.” (Jer. 33:5) Praise God!


Joy Beyond The Cross

May 22nd, 2013

 

by Rev. Roger Smets

“Who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross”. (Heb. 12:2b)

When one considers the horrible and excrusiating pain that Jesus endured on the cross, the question cannot help but surface, “How could He do it?” How could He bear such pain in His body?  The answer is in Hebrews 12:2b. What was that “joy” that was “set before Him”, the joy  that He managed to keep His focus on as He was being sacrificed like an animal on the tree?  It was the joy of knowing that He was, through His blood, providing redemption, a way that all of mankind could be forgiven of sin and made right with God. It was an “inner joy” that only Jesus would ever know. Praise God for this “joy” that was “set before” Jesus that enabled Him to “endure the cross.

Truly, Jesus looked beyond the cross and saw you and me, in need of a Savior to forgive us and cleanse us from all our sin. As the hymn so eloquently said it, “Oh what a Savior”!

I just can’t see….

August 4th, 2012

Often when we have encountered those discouraging times in life when nothing seems to be working for us, we find ourselves saying, “I just can’t see” how I’m going to make it” or “I just can’t see how I’m going to get through this or get through that or I just can’t see how any of what I’m going through could ever “work for good”. Life can be overwhelming at times and even the best of us can find ourselves saying, “I just can’t see”. When we say “I just can’t see” it is not because we don’t have the ability to see or are lacking an what we need to see. No, it’s simply because you need more light! Light is what enables us to see, it is what releases our spiritual vision to operate. If you are in a completely dark room where there is no light, you can place your hand just a couple inches in front of you nose and you won’t see it, not because it is not there, but because you need light to see it! This is why Jesus said, “I am the light of the world”. (Jn. 8:12a) He is the One who enables us to see in the most difficult of times. So what is the answer when you “just can’t see”, it is Jesus! We need more of Him, more of His fulness, more of His grace and more of His power working in us, so that we might see! So be it Lord Jesus!


THE POWER OF DECLARATION!

April 28th, 2012

Recently, I have been affirming “The Power of Declaration” in our services. The Bible says that “when you speak a thing or declare a thing, that thing becomes established in you”. (Job 22:28) When we speak or “declare” those things with our lips that we so believe in our hearts, something of God’s power gets loosed. There comes the releasing of the miraculous that no work of darkness can overcome!

THIS WEEK our ministry continues in Southern California. We will be holding services in Brea, CA at “Downtown Chapel” (in Orange County).


REVIVAL MEETINGS IN LANCASTER, CA!

April 25th, 2012

This week we have been holding Revival Meetings in Lancaster, CA. It has been a powerful time of ministry focusing on knowing “The Will of God”, “The Ways of God” and “The Word of God”. In every service there has been a strong demonstration of the Holy Spirit. People have been saved, filled with the Holy Spirit and freshly empowered with the Word of God. The Bible says that “He sent His Word and healed them and delivered them…” (Ps. 107:20)

We thank God for His continued anointing upon us as we declare the promise of His Word into the hearts of many.


Peace That Keeps

September 20th, 2010

The Peace That Keeps!

Perhaps one of the most well known verse in the entire Bible on the Peace of God is Phillipians 4:7, “The peace of God that passes all understanding will keep your heart and your mind through Christ Jesus our Lord.”  One of the key words in this verse is “keep“.  It makes this an assuring peace that has power to keep us in the midst of the most troublesome storms of life.  This verse says that God’s peace will keep our hearts and our minds.  Some say in the midst of difficult times, “I’m about to lose my mind”, but God says, “no!”,  ”I will keep it for you”.    He promises to keep our hearts and our minds with His awesome peace.  This peace is a peace that only He can give, the peace that surpasses all human ability to comprehend.  It is the only true peace that promises emotional, mental and spiritual stability amid the most difficult of times.

Tom Ferguson Remembered – A Man Who Loved Jesus!

September 14th, 2010

 This past Sunday, I had the priviledge of ministering at Hope Foursquare Church in Snohomish, WA, the church that my dear friend, Dr. Tom Ferguson was  actively serving as Senior Pastor until his passing four months ago.  I felt honored to have been invited to stand in the place where he stood and to declare the Word of God to his people.  Needless to say, it was a sobering moment, realizing that Tom is gone and will not be returning.  There were many tears in the house.  They say in life you can count on one hand the number of people who have made a signifant impact on your life.  Well for me, Pastor Tom was one of those five.  He was always a great encouragement to Gwen and I in our ministry as evangelists.  I miss the frequent phone calls that always ended with a prayer and a Bible Promise for the day.  I miss his distinctive voice that always carried a tone of hope.  Perhaps his greatest asset was that he was a man who undeniably loved Jesus!     

This coming Sunday, Pastor Tom’s son, Andrew Ferguson and wife, Megan will be officially installed as the new Senior Pastors of Hope Foursquare by Northwest District Supervisor, David Veech.  This past Sunday, I had the priviledge of praying a strong personal prophetic Word over Andrew and Megan as they now assume this added responsibility of leadership for the church.

Next Sunday:  Next Sunday I will be ministering at Family Life Center Foursquare Church in Exeter, CA, where Tom and Ronda Ferguson served as Youth Pastors in their early ministry many years ago.  Thanks for your prayers as I minister to people who need Words of Life and Words of Hope from God’s Word.


Being Fitly Joined Together

August 31st, 2010

The Bible says that we have all been “fitly joined together…edifying each other in love”. (Rom. 4:16a)  As we minster all over the United States and Canada, we see the how the Lord has “fitly joined” us together with many different churches and congregations.  As one of the gifts described in Ephesians 4:11,  we as “evangelists” see ourselves as  ”bearers of Good News” to many in and outside of the body of Christ.  If you know Jesus, God has “fitly joined” you too, along side other believers who love God and who can help build you up in the faith.  While we all are different in personalities, manners and ways, God has placed us together as one body strengthened by our common faith in Christ. 

This weekendwe will be minstering at the “Life Foursquare Church” in Yreka, CA.  Pray for us as we minister to this growing congregation.

PRAYER OPPORTUNITY: If you have a prayer need, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will pray for you and declare God’s promises in your behalf.  God has called us to “bear one another’s burden”, praying together in faith believing. (Gal. 6:2)  Just click on “Contact” above.
