And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments.
Luke 23:34 (ESV)
He who never needed it gave it freely. Why won’t you?
When you hear this utterance from the mouth of Jesus, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do,” our natural minds immediately say, “There is no way I would forgive them, while they’re hanging me on a cross.” The people knew exactly what they were doing, or yet, they should’ve known; they knew the scriptures. The scriptures foretold of the Messiah — the Messiah they had been earnestly praying for, waiting and anticipating for years while under cruel Roman rule. How could Jesus make this decision, how could He extend this kind of compassion when the people had absolutely no compassion for Him? They knew He was innocent, yet they were screaming, and advocating for His demise. The One who never needed forgiveness was willing to give it freely to those who didn’t deserve it. How could He make this decision Continue reading

God created you in His image to reflect His attributes. He also created you to feel accepted, valued, significant, worthy, esteemed and loved. He desires to have a personal and intimate relationship with you. This can only happen when you not only believe in Him but also believe him. Unbelief blocks you from growing past believing God just the salvation, to believing God for every aspect of life on earth. Satan’s biggest reception is to get you to doubt God. But as a believer, you must live by faith that God loves you. Hebrews 11:6 says: “that without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that he is an believe that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
In this lesson you will learn some causes of unbelief. Why should you believe? What happens when you don’t believe? How do you believe? How do you build your faith? How does God build your faith? Continue reading

At this year’s combined New Year’s revival hosted Greater Mt. Calvary and First Baptist of Glenarden, God spoke rhema words to me through each speaker in such a cohesive and distinct way that did not just give me marching orders for 2018, but spoke directly to my destiny! But, because of the essence of time, I can’t share everything, but I want to share with you three things the Lord spoke to me.
- Through Bishop Rudolph Mckissick, Jr. – You Have The Assignment to Carry Greatness.
God was speaking to me about the assignment He gave me eight years ago while attending a multiple sclerosis with my mother, who had been diagnosed with the disease. As the presenters were sharing information, there was an interruption. The Holy Spirit started downloading a vision that I wrote on the pad provided for us to take notes on. By the time He finished, Anointed Women In Christ (AWIC) was birthed. I was so excited I couldn’t wait to get out of there to share with my BFF what God had given me. And we hit the ground running! We registered the business ministry, developed a team, set the date and signed the contract for October 7-9, 2011 at the National Conference Center. How many of you know that God declares the end before the beginning, but there is also the middle and in the middle of it, I had to go through this to get to that, which is the second word God spoke to me.
- Through Evangelist Joyce Rodgers – I Had to Go Through This to Get That.
I had to go through the separation, the divorce, the betrayal, being lied on, being overlooked, being denied, being mistreated, being talked about. All of those things God allowed, but they all had purpose. And lastly, He spoke Continue reading
