Even the strongest among us need help sometimes.
Do you know where to get help?
Who can you trust to help you?
Where can we find the ultimate reinforcements?
And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching (to call to or for, call near, comfort, "make a call" from being "close-up and personal.") him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal (to wait upon, serve, relieve of disease, therapeutic root) him. -KJV
Jesus > devil
Does evil exist? Does the devil exist?
Are you enslaved to fear and torment?
Can anything pierce your darkness? Can or will Jesus help?
Then people went out to see what had happened. They came to Jesus and found the man the demons had departed from, sitting at Jesus’ feet, dressed (perfect, passive clothed) and in his right mind (sane, sound mind, exercise self control, to curb one's passions). And they were afraid. -HCSB
What do you need? Do you need refreshment?
Life begins with water, life continues with water.
Do you need to be filled? Are you thirsty?
Join us as Brother Carl teaches about the Feast of the Tabernacles / Water Libation Ceremony and the connection to Jesus!
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried (to scream, to cry out, a raven's piercing cry ("caw"); cry out loudly with an urgent scream or shriek that express deep emotion), saying, If any man thirst (suffer thirst, desire earnestly, those are said to thirst who painfully feel their want of, and eagerly long for, those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported, strengthened), let him come unto me, and drink. -KJV

Discover Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement and the connection to Jesus!
Zoe Life = Jesus
What is life?
Is it more than what we do? Is it more than what we know? Is it more than the cycle to death? Does Life have meaning and purpose?
How much of it do we actually have?
What is the Book of Life?
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Jesus = No Condemnation
Do you feel condemned?
Do you feel worthless?
Do you feel unforgiven?
Jesus died to forgive you!
Jesus' death gives you worth!
Jesus removes condemnation!
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn (to distinguish, decide, to try, judge) the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Praying to Proclaim
Jesus said, "The Harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few"
Do you share your faith?
Do you know how to share your faith?
There are several mysteries in the Bible that can help us!
Matthew 9:35-38 36
But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; 38 Pray (to want, to desire, beg) ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
Mystery of the Indwelling of Jesus
Should you ask Jesus into your heart?
Is asking Jesus into my heart biblical?
What does it mean to ask Jesus into my heart?
Jesus wants to live with you!
"Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
The Devil & The Word
Have you ever been hurt by a "Christian"?
The Devil wants us to fight one another.
Our words are the greatest weapon against the Devil,
But he wants us to turn our words against each other!
Mark 1:23-25 23
And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. 25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
Pray the Promises
Do you pray? Do you pray in every situation?
The Bible has many promises, Do you know them?
Do you pray the promises of the Bible over yourself?
3 And I set my face (So I turned my attention) unto the Lord God, to seek (make a request, seek an answer) by prayer and supplications (petition, pleading), with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: 4 And I prayed unto the Lord my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful (awesome) God, keeping the covenant (alliance) and mercy (grace) to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;
Jesus Desires Grace
Do you feel like the World has forgotten you?
Do you feel like you've been kicked to the curb?
Do you have sorrow today?
Have you been saved, but still feel condemned?
Lamentations 3:22-24 22
It is of the Lord's mercies (chesed: Grace) that we are not consumed (to be complete, be finished, be at an end. Perfect Tense), because his compassions (womb, tender love) fail not (to be at an end, to cease, to accomplish. Perfect Tense). 23 They are new every morning: great (much, many, abounding) is thy faithfulness. 24 The Lord is my portion (inheritance -of land), saith (to speak. Perfect Tense) my soul; therefore will I hope (to wait, be patient, expect) in him.
Jesus Forgives and Heals
What kind of friends do you have?
What kind of friend are you?
Are you Paralyzed Physically? Emotionally? Mentally?
Jesus can heal you from all that and bring you wholeness!
"For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? But that ye may know (to see or perceive. Perfect Tense) that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. And he arose, and departed to his house."
Jesus' work in you
The God of the Universe wants to be with you.
He wants to be in your life.
He wants to work His work through you.
God wants an intimate relationship with you!
"And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him." -KJV
The Vital Holy Spirit
Do you hear God?
God wants to talk with you.
God's Spirit wants to help you.
It's vital to have the Holy Spirit inside of you.
It's vital to listen and obey the Holy Spirit.
You, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, since[g] the Spirit of God lives in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. Now if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, then He who raised Christ from the dead will also bring your mortal bodies to life through His Spirit who lives in you. -HCSB
Freedom in Jesus
Do you feel free?
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
Revealed by the Spirit
Can you understand the Bible?
How can we live Godly lives?
What does the Holy Spirit do?
1 Corinthians 2:7-11
"But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
Don't Forget Jesus!
Have you ever forgotten about someone?
Have you ever forgotten about anything?
Have you ever forgotten about Jesus?
...And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers. And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business? And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
Jesus Ascension = The Spirit
Why did Jesus ascend into heaven?
Why is that important to us today?
What does the Holy Spirit do?
Why does that matter to us today?
Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. It is for your benefit (bear together, help, contribute) that I go away, because if I don’t go away the Counselor (call near, comforter, lawyer) will not come to you. If I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will convict (confute, admonish, convince) the world about sin, righteousness, and judgment: 9 About sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me; 11 and about judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.
Jesus Cursed = Our Blessing
Do you desire freedom?
Do you desire TRUE freedom?
Sacrifice is needed for any kind of freedom.
Do you feel cursed or blessed?
Jesus offers us TRUE freedom from any curse!
And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. -KJV
Brand of the Beast or the Seal of the Savior
What does 666 mean in the Bible?
What is the Mark of the Beast?
What does it mean to be Sealed by the Savior?
15 …and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark (stamp, imprint, carving, branding) in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).
Jesus honored his parents.
Jesus loved his mother.
Jesus loves the family.
Jesus even established the Church as a family.
For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. In him the whole building, being put together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you are also being built together for God’s dwelling in the Spirit.
Mystery of Sharing Jesus
Do you spend time sharing your faith?
Do you have a hard time sharing your faith?
Do you even know how to share your faith?
Jesus can help you, all you need to do is ask Him!
1 Corinthians 2:1-5
"When I came to you, brothers and sisters, announcing the mystery of God to you, I did not come with brilliance of speech or wisdom. I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. My speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of wisdom but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not be based on human wisdom but on God’s power. -CJB
Mystery of the Fellowship = Jesus
Do you want to be satisfied in your life?
Do you want perfect peace in your life?
Do you want true fellowship in your life?
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
Keep Going in Jesus
Are the troubles of life, weighing you down?
Are you having a hard time, wanting to keep going?

Do you desire success?
Do you desire the most valuable possessions?

Mystery of Christ = Love
Fear is a root cause of our problems.
Perfect love casts out fear.
God desires our hearts to be comforted.
God wants our hearts knit together in love.
"That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." -KJV
Secret Treasured Scriptures
Are you always looking for answers, but never finding them? What are you seeking and searching for in your life? Do you believe the Bible is a treasure? Did you know all your problems and strifes of life can be answered within the scriptures? God wants to reveal to you His secrets!
"My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God."
Walking with Jesus
Are you just going through the motions of playing church?
Are you just pretending to be a Christian?
Jesus really wants to walk with you!
Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Mystery of Godliness
Do you have a hard time at being Godly?
Do you feel like you worship God well?
Do you know how to worship God well?
Jesus = Godliness!
1 Timothy 3:14-16
These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. -KJV
Mystery of Glory
Do you feel like a Nobody sometimes?
Do you have a bad reputation?
Jesus can change your reputation!
Can you feel the presence of God?
Do you push Him away or ask Him in?
"Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God; Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:"
Mystery of Security in Jesus
Do you feel all alone? Do you feel like God has forgotten you? Do you feel like God has forsaken you? Do you feel hopeless? Do you feel suicidal? Please know there is still hope! Jesus is still near! He will never forget or forsake you!
Sing, O heavens! Be joyful, O earth! And break out in singing, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people, And will have mercy on His afflicted. God Will Remember Zion. But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me.” “Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands, Your walls are continually before Me.
Mystery of Christ and the Church
Do you know God is good? Are you following Him? Do you know God wants to save you? Do you know God loves you? Did you know God wants to nourish you? Did you know God wants to cherish you? Christ Jesus loves His Church, His Bride! Knowing these things helps you follow Him!
...For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christdoesthechurch, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. -ESV
Jesus Removes the Veil
What is hidden, covered, or concealed in your life? Is your heart, mind, or spirit? Jesus can unveil it!
2 Corinthians 3:14
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remains the same veil not taken away in the reading of the old covenant; which veil is done away in Christ.
Mystery of the Heart & Jesus
How's your heart? What do you have...a religion or a relationship with God? Is your heart running away from God and toward religion? Religion cannot save you! God wants you to draw near unto Him with your whole heart, not just go through the motions of ritual!
Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
Heirship with Christ
How's your family? Do you have a family? How's your dad? Do you have a dad? Do you know God? Did you know God wants to adopt you as his own child and give you joint-heirship with Jesus Christ?!
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. 8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. 9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

Jesus Return = Hopeful Comfort
Jesus will be returning. Are you ready? His return should bring you hope and comfort, or are you worried about it? How will His return be the fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets?
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope...For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Jesus = No Doubt
Do you have any doubt? Do you ever doubt if God hears you? Do you ever doubt that God will help you? Are you always 100% sure? Doubt is the opposite of hope. Have you ever said, "I hope so"? Jesus wants to remove all doubt!
...O thou of little faith (trust), wherefore didst thou doubt? (to duplicate, i.e. mentally to waver in opinion)
Jesus = Purity
How can we be free from sin? How can we achieve purity? How can we be empowered not to sin? How can we purify ourselves? Is it even possible?
1 John 3:2-3
Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him because we will see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself just as He is pure. -HCSB
Jesus = Good Works
Have you ever been told you need to do good works or work at being a better person? But, you always fail or never seem to measure up? Learn how you can achieve good works!
This saying is trustworthy. I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed God might be careful to devote themselves to good works. These are good and profitable for everyone. -HCSB
Jesus = Joy
Are you ready for a different type of message about joy? How can we have true joy that lasts? Can you have joy even if you feel like a failure or bad? Is that kind of joy possible?
Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
Jesus = The Great Amen
Do you believe God? Do you want His promises? Will you receive it? Will you say...let it be, I agree, It is so? Amen, Amen, Amen!
Even the prophet Jeremiah said, Amen: the LORD do so: the LORD perform thy words which thou hast prophesied,
Hope in Jesus and not religion
Are you struggling to have victory in your life? Still struggling to be set free? Still struggling to be joyous and glad? God CAN set you free! Your fasting will be turned into feasting! Only Jesus can do it!
And the word of the Lord of hosts came unto me, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace. -KJV
Jesus = A Better Hope
Do you hope to get into Heaven by your personal effort or performances? Are you still struggling to be perfect? There IS a BETTER HOPE that WILL perfect you! Jesus is that Better Hope!
For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. -KJV
Jesus Helps Our Weaknesses
Have you ever felt depressed or worried? Do you have any weaknesses? Jesus can help our weaknesses. Will you let him?
2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is perfected in weakness." Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may reside in me. -CSB
