We have lost the meaning of holiness in this generation. Holiness has been swept under the rug. THE BIBLE says in 2 Corinthians 7:1 Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God. Church we have lost the fear of God. If we can put the fear of God back into our hearts than we can walk in His Holiness.
1 Peter 1:14–16 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
If you notice Peter addressed to persecuted Christians
(you also be holy in all your conduct). Be holy in all your conduct in everything you do, in your conversation in your dealings of business in what you hear what you watch in everything. God has called every Christian to a holy life. The word holy signifies a "separation to God, to live a holy life is to live a life in conformity to the principle of the Bible and in contrast to the sinful ways of the world. Lets bring back Holiness and fear of God back to the Church, (You are the Church). Separate yourself from this world, from the ways of this world. Paul teaches the Church to not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
If you can line your life with the word of God than you will learn how to walk in the fear of God and His Holiness. God Bless Love You,

Lord, I offer you my body as a living sacrifice. Help me, through your Holy Spirit who lives in me, to be holy as you are holy Amen.
In Psalm 118, the author is writing about His adversities. It's not written when times are good, but when times are really hard. Situations were changing. The Psalmist cried out to God in anguish, he was surrounded on all sides by the enemy. He felt pushed back, and about to fall. Yet right in the midst of huge struggles shared, this chapter both starts and ends with the same verse, of giving thanks and praise unto God. "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, his love endures forever." v. 1,29. Give thanks no matter what, Give thanks when your down, give thanks when nothing goes right, give thanks to the Lord. Such a powerful reminder to us, True joy is never dependent on our circumstances. Definition of joy in the Bible is our strength in Nehemiah 8:10...for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Rejoice in the Lord today!
His word is so good.

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Secret Place, is a place that only you and God comes together and meet. A place where you can hid from all the cares of this world, a place that you feel safe, a place where you fellowship with the Lord and you become oneness with Him. The bible teaches us in Matthew 6:6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
shut the door means, close the door from the world from everyone and only you in Jesus is in that secret place, that place of safety a place where you feel and know His presences is there. He who dwells, meaning He who reside, He who lives, He who settled in that place. So when you pray in your closet, can be your room your bathroom anywhere, where you can go alone with God and pray. do not pray just five minutes and say your little prayer and get up and go stay there till you call God's presences down where your at, till you know you got a breakthrough till you know you have had fellowship with Him, stay and pray don't get up so fast wait upon Him till you hear Him. Our Heavenly Father longs to fellowship with us He wants to talk to us. Under the Shadow of the Almighty, that tells me when I am dwelling in my secret place with God, He is there with me and His evidence is His Shadow. Find a secret place where you and God can hid and fellowship.
Love Ya'll, God Bless,
Mighty hand of God is at work Don’t trust in your situation and don’t look to what is seen. All the trials you go through in life is making you stronger. You will see God working in your life if you’re a Christian. You won’t remain in those trials don’t give up. You will go through trials and get out and then go back in them, but always remember the mighty hand of God is at work. Don’t waste trials go into that prayer closet and cry out to God. Glorify God in your suffering not my will God, but your will. God will help you have faith. Yes it is important to read His Word, but you must call on the Lord daily. You must build your prayer life. God will not leave his children. Don't give up trust in Him. Psalm 31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD. 1 Corinthians 16:13 Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me. 2 Chronicles 15:7 But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. His word Matthew 4:4 But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'” Proverbs 6:23 For this command is a lamp, this teaching is a light, and correction and instruction are the way to life, Job 22:22 Accept instruction from his mouth and lay up his words in your heart. Love Ya'll, GOD Bless, -Esmeralda Kachmar
Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. "truth be in the inward parts" ( Psalm 51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom). A heart that is honest, right before God, is what delights Him. It is only the ("pure in heart" that shall "see God" Matthew 5:8). God is not after merely external conformity. He wants the heart of the man. And this is part of what makes the New Covenant promises so wonderful -- God will write his law on the heart (Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people). It will not be a mere external rule, written on stone. It will be internalized so as to cause the man to want to follow the Lord This verse clearly demands that we protect our hearts against things such as covetousness, materialism, greed, pride, bitterness, anxiety, rebellion, self pity. All these are obvious. But surely there is more. Does it not also demand that we be careful not to allow our hearts to be drawn away from the Lord by "harmless" distractions? Our love for leisure, things, toys, recreations, hobbies -- so many things -- can cause us to "leave our first love" (Revelation 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.) We must give our energies and attention to making sure these things do not so occupy our minds or captivate our desires and ambitions that we forget the higher priority of loving and serving God with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength. A Christian man is not like other men. He has higher thoughts, higher desires, higher priorities, higher goals and ambitions. And while the world offers many harmless and enjoyable things, we must recognize that they are all dangerous. They may lead us to forget Him. The apostle John's command, ("My little children, depart from idols" 1 John. 5:21). "An evil heart of unbelief" may quickly arise in a heart that is "hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. (Hebrews 3:12-13 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.) Love Ya'll, God Bless,
Everyone who wants to live a godly life will be persecuted, but some of us pretend to be like the worldly so we fit is and avoid persecution John 3:20 Righteousness, by its very nature, is confrontational. The very fact that you believe in Jesus bothers some people, because Jesus said, "For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed"
People give a lot of excuses as to why they are not Christians, but I would say the real reason people do not come to Christ is they don't want their evil deeds exposed. They don't want to admit they are sinners.
You are a representative of Christ. And the reality is that if you follow Jesus, then you will face persecution. Because "all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution." Matthew 5:10-11 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you" Love Ya'll God Bless,
Have you ever sit back and think of what you believe? What you believe is your foundation and when you have a strong foundation than you know nothing can not move you. No trails no tribulation no test no situation not even your enemies and the devil. Why because you are standing on solid foundation solid rock and that is Jesus Christ. Here at DFM WE BELIEVE........
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God. We believe in His death for all men, His resurrection, and His eventual return to judge the world. the deity of Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God. We believe in Genesis 1:1, John 14:7-16.
We believe all are born with a sinful nature and that the work of Christ’s atonement at the Cross was to redeem us from the power of sin. We believe that this salvation from sin is available to all who are willing to receive it through the prayer of salvation in John 3:5, Romans 10:9.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the existence of the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity (God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit.) We believe in the Holy Spirit’s interaction with man as a helper and comforter in John 14:16. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as manifested by the fruit and the gift in 1 Corinthians 2:12, 2 Corinthians 3:17, Galatians 5:25.
We believe in the scripture as the inspired Word of God and that it is the complete revelation of God’s will for mankind. We believe in the absolute authority of the scripture to govern the affairs of mankind in 2 Timothy 3:16, Psalm 119:105, Romans 15:4.
Baptism is by immersion after salvation and is done in obedience to Jesus Christ’s command in Matthew 3;15-17, Acts 2:38.
BELIEVER'S ACCESS TO GOD
Each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ in Hebrews 4:14-16; 7:19, Ephesians 3:12.
The Church is a local body of believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head in Matthew 16:18, 1 Corinthians 12:27-29, Colossians 1:17-19 God Bless,
4 years ago God called me back home little did I know what He had in store for me! It's been a rough road little bumps here and there but that's all good because it taught me to watch for those bumps and slow down when I need to. I can honestly tell you that every vision I seen and held on to my life has came to past and there is many more to come. When God opens a door for you no man can shut. Jeremiah says For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Those are God's plan for our life. When you can trust Him and give your plans your dreams to Him than He will give you His plans for you. If you just Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding He will direct your path and His path is the best way. So give Jesus your dreams your plans and He will give you His plans for your life. God Bless,
“Did we not cast three men bound into the fire?” He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
Have you been feeling lately pressure? Pressure of life pressure all around you like you are being choked from every which way you turn. And you don’t understand because you are doing exactly with the word says….Psalms 91:1,2 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Here a story about three men in the bible that refuse to worship another God. Some of us are in the same place we refuse to be knocked down from the pressure of this world from the enemy. My friends do not give up. When I am in this situation I turn to this verse one of my favorite Proverbs 3:5,6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. I encourage you as I am encouraging my self is to Trust in the Lord! Stay in the fire I understand that is a scary place and painful place. But you have to remember in that fire God is doing something we might not understand but during that fire He has to burn everything that is not of him and burn all the old and things that been buried and planted that’s is of old he is burning off. Do not forget He is with you in that fire. And when the fire has been turned off and He is saying it’s FINISHED come on out Praise God! Then He will sit back and look and admire what He has done in you. You will be coming out like a beautiful rose. So stay in the fire do not come out unless He is finish. God Bless,
