1I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
Eternal Father, Abba, I ask that you take over my mouth with the boldness that you gave me this WORD for this time and season. I ask that You hid me behind the cross. That You Father have your way in this service today. Your people need to know that You are here. For their burdens are heavy You said to cast all your cares upon Him who cares for them. I bind up the strongman of heaviness in this place right now in the name of Jesus. I bind up the spirit of rejection right now in the name of Jesus. I bind up the hand of every witch and warlock on assignment against me to bring this WORD of healing. I plead the Blood of Jesus over everyone with in the sound of my voice. Abba send the fire of the Holy Spirit into this place to burn down to its root every thing not like You down to its root that may have gotten attacked to your people and every trail down to its roots in the name of Jesus I pray Amen.-
The theme is: For the LOVE of Ministry (ministry is serving God’s people)
My Subtopic is –We most be battlefield ready daily!
Look at your neighbor and say with an attitude. We most be battlefield ready daily. If not the war is over and you have lost.
Is it alright if I be me. Let’s keep this real! For I have no time for any pity potty nonsense. For God has been too good. When we do a look back praise over our life.
All I can do is say thank you LORD. Thank you LORD for protecting me as child when my father was beating up on my mother and I would jump in to protect her. Thank you LORD for keeping my brother, sister and I safe while we were hung out a 3rd floor window in an army field duffle bag. With a hole in the bottom and Ruben wanted to be superman to ripe the bag open to save us. But I boldly said if you do that we will die. Thank you LORD, for protecting my mind when I got married not knowing you being a 5th generation white witch. Yet I know today a witch is a witch. I thank you that when I found out my husband married me for my money, he was making porno movies and that he had a male lover of 4 years and I am six months married, as my mind shut down you protected it so that one day it would be able to talk about the great hurt of the spirit of rejection. I thank you LORD for keeping me while I smoked crack for 15 years. I thank you LORD that when I had to prostitute myself for money to get the drugs to medicate the great pains of shame, guilt and the belief that I was a failure. That no body could help me! That I would always be called a crack head! You kept me! I thank you LORD how while in exile of a New York State Prison for 4 years I studied to show myself approved rightly dividing the WORD of God. I thank you LORD for how your WORD has not come back void as You, not man has called me into ministry; to tell of the power of what YOU have done and can do for any one who opens up their heart 5Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. 6In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
I thank you LORD how for the last 6 ½ years home from prison You have used me to tell the testimony to encourage any one who wanted to know how I am, who You made me today. I thank you LORD that during the 6 1/2 years of testing in the Egypt of my family you trained me how to be battlefield ready daily! July 4, 2008 came and I was removed from my home by a court order of domestic violence due to lies, trickery and deception. I said Thy will be done! I thank you LORD that when I went to court and the enemy came in like a flood because I refused to take a plea for something I did not do. Now I am being charged with sexual allegations charges against me. Plus threatening to kick my 72 year old mother down a flight of steps and smoking cracking. I boldly stood my ground and said take this to trial! I thank you LORD that today. Apostle Heloise Sulyans-Gibson: Chaplain. Can boldly say ‘He knows were I go to come forth as pure gold.
I come to encourage you today for we most always remember that the battle is not ours it’ the LORD. When we take a look in the bible there are many who have been used by God who did not fit the norm of society. God takes the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. I just want to touch on several such people and how God used them in the mist of there great persecutions and testing of faith.
Jephthah-son of Gilead Judges 11:1-2
1Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valour and he was the son of a harlot: and Gilead begat Jephthah.
2And Gilead's wife bare him sons; and his wife's sons grew up, and they thrust out Jephthah, and said unto him, Thou shalt not inherit in our father's house; for thou art the son of a strange woman. Then Jephthah fled from his brethren, and dwelt in the land of Tob: and there were gathered vain men to Jephthah, and went out with him.
We know that life and death is in the power of the tongue. This was the spirit of rejection that came in to blind side Jephthah. To bust him in the head with the spirit of rejection. Can you imagine how hurt and broken he felt, when for years he played, loved and laughed with his siblings? Then one day the enemy uses them to cut a bleeding wound in his heart. He had done nothing wrong! But, he was the son of a harlot! He had to flew from his breathren leads me to believe that they came against him now to kill him! But later in the scriptures we find that the children of Ammon made war against Israel. The elders of Gilead went to fetch Jephthah out of the land of Tob. Did not ye hate me, and expel me out of my father's house? And why are ye come unto me now when ye are in distress?
Some of us have had this same experience but because of the Christ in us and we now have love and forgiveness and we come to their aid.
Thank God for the Blood! The Blood for forgiveness and healing
Daniel found himself in the lions den. Why? Because he refused to bowed down and worship any false God. Ex 20:1 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Family and friends can become a god when you allow them to direct your path. For my steps are ordered by the LORD.
Can you imagine resting in perfect peace in a lions den? I know the lions would have look at me and said lunch, but bless the LORD for the power of faith.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Plus, Calling those things to be as if they were!
I can imagine Daniel stepping in the den saying with boldness and authority. That the God that I serve will show up and show out. That you might as well lay down and get some sleep because I am tired from all this foolish. The lions looked at Daniel and said this one we can’t mess with. He came in our house like he owned the place. But we know that God was in charge. When the morning came he told the king. Daniel 6: 22My God has sent His angel and has shut the lions' mouths so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent and blameless before Him; and also before you, O king, [as you very well know] I have done no harm or wrong
God will always lift of a standard around His faithful, obedient, chosen people but you have to believe that He is I AM that I AM!
John 11:35 Jesus wept. This scripture was talking about the death of Lazarus. The love he had for his friend. This same love Jesus has for us too.
14You are My friends if you keep on doing the things which I command you to do. What have you been commanded to do?
15I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him. So if you are studying the Word and asking for understanding and wisdom in your present testing it will be made clear. For you have not because you ask not.
17This is what I command you: that you love one another.
18If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you.
20Remember that I told you, A servant is not greater than his master [is not superior to him]. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word and obeyed My teachings, they will also keep and obey yours.
21But they will do all this to you [inflict all this suffering on you] because of [your bearing] My name and on My account, for they do not know or understand the One Who sent Me.
22If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin [would be blameless]; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
Each one of us when people are not doing right our presence convicts them. This is why they try to flip the script on us and blame us for something. No they need to get right.
II. I know many of you are now saying;
Apostle, how do I apply this in my life? It’s easy to read the scripture. What can you give me? Well I have come to give you my tried and true weapon.
Let us get ready to go into the Boot Camp. Remember I said in the beginning that the my subtopic was
We most be battle field ready daily.
We are at war! It you did not know that by know let me say it again. We the believers are at war! Because we have been called by God to do the work of the kingdom. Satan is doing his job to try to takes as many in with him when his time is up! Jesus came so that we would have life and have it more abundantly. As we go through this time of warfare. We have to learn how to take back what the enemy has stolen!
This is why daily we need to renew our minds from the daily on slaughter of people in the church , out the church and family members who now want to put us down because we have chosen to follow Jesus and pick up our cross daily! When we were in the world there was a song that said.
Smiling faces smiling faces tells. Beware of the pat on the back it just mite hold you back, jealousy and envy. You know what I am talking.
Yet daily we are in a boot camp of training. What use to push my button now I understand 12For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
In the boot camp of daily training we understand that there are many distracting spirits that have found a portal in somebody or someone near to use. Now they want to inflict hurt, pain and rejection. We most remember and use our weapons of warfare which is worship and in our praise. We guard our hearts with a song that will take us into the presence of the LORD!
I do not care if you can carry a tone God loves to be sung too.
We Need You LORD
We need You LORD; we need You LORD right now.
We need You LORD; we need You LORD right now.
We lift our hands and bow our knees and worship at your throne.
We need you LORD we need You right now!
I find that when I sing unto the LORD it locks me straight in his presence. It shakes off the spirit of heaviness and all the hurtful things I am going through because of the Christ in me. I don’t know about you. I will always honor my vow to the LORD.
So in closing remember we are at war! We are at War! Use your weapon of praise and worship for the enemy can not, no he can not stand in the presence of praise and worship. For he made his choice by selling wolf tickets to the LORD. There were five tickets of rebellion and boasting. Can you imagine God gave Lucifer 5 chances to repent.
12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
This is why Satan hates the believer for he knows the blessings that are ours. He rejected the gift of God.
Many people will reject you the gift that God sends into the mist. But I want to encourage you to remember to stay in position for we are only the vessel that God is using to blow peoples minds. Let God use you and just stay in his presence for this will surly pass.
