The Lord is My Salvation

January 5, 2022

In most years after the New Year’s celebration, we ask what’s next? I venture to tell you that it is quite obvious this year. We, in the body of Christ, have to make a concerted effort to show to anybody and everybody that does not have a relationship with Jesus, His marvelous love and salvation. The Lord’s salvation is integral factor to a city-wide, state-wide, nationwide, and worldwide revival. There are too many souls out there in the field not to get to work. Let’s look at what Jesus and the Lord both say about salvation. In Mark 16, we find Jesus telling us the importance of the Gospel and salvation. “And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.” (mark 16:15-18 NLT) In Isaiah 55 the Lord give us a prophetic invitation to salvation and tells us the benefits of it. “Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink— even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk— it’s all free! Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen to me, and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the finest food. Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen, and you will find life. I will make an everlasting covenant with you. I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David. See how I used him to display my power among the peoples. I made him a leader among the nations. You also will command nations you do not know, and peoples unknown to you will come running to obey, because I, the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, have made you glorious.” (Isaiah 55:1-5 NLT) The Lord’s salvation comes with supernatural victory, healing, deliverance and peace. It becomes clear that revival cannot start with salvation. We have to believe that revival is needed now. We cannot wait for revival to just show up, we must get the message of Jesus out to the world as soon as possible. The world is dying without the power of Jesus to revive it. We have to evangelize the streets, the cities, the office buildings, the suburbs, and the countryside and talk to everyone about Jesus and the importance of it. Revival is more than a tent and a speaking engagement. It is the demonstration of God’s love just like He said in Isaiah 55. Revival in the word’s nature means a coming alive of something that was dead or dying. So revival starts, ignites, and breathes through salvation. Salvation is the engine that fires up revival. In the last few previous years, the body of Christ has been attacked from outside forces. Those Forces came straight from the pits of Hell. But, Let’s remember that Jesus went to Hell to spoil the Devil’s plan too. In Ephesians 4, the Bible states “But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, And gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)” (Ephesians 4:7-10 KJV) In case you didn’t understand that Peter clarifies this text by saying in 1 Peter 4:6 “For this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.” (1 Peter 4:6 KJV) We can now say unequivocally that Jesus preached salvation to everyone including to those in Hell and we should do the same. We should declare that we will preach until everyone we know is going to Heaven that might have been on their way to Hell. So, let us not forget the call to arms for Salvation and celebrate the New Year with a single-minded mission of the Lord’s Salvation. That are the true blessings of Jesus for this coming year.

No Other King

April 1, 2022 • Bishop Adam G. Blackstock

In the book of Psalms, we find a powerful passage of scripture that gives us a great illustration of Jesus. He is strong and mighty and the King of Glory.  Besides that account in Psalms, we find other accounts that describe Yeshua as the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, and the Prince of Peace.  No other King is described like that ever before God, and no other king will be described like that ever again.  There is a simple reason for this plain hard fact, as Kenneth Copeland would say “Jesus is Lord.”  He, being Jesus, means so much to Prophetess and me that we say it after every radio broadcast as well.   Repeat after me --- There is no other king because Jesus is Lord.     Let’s look at a few passages of scriptures that reinforce my message today.  The first is Psalm 24:1-10.  It reads “The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; The world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; Who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, That seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.  Lift up your heads, O ye gates; And be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.” (Psalm 24:1-10 KJV) We find David, the writer of this Psalm defines God as the King of Glory.   Repeat after me --- There is no other king because Jesus is Lord.     Secondly, Paul, in the first letter to Timothy tells us that the Lord is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. It reads “that thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: 1which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 1who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.” (1 Timothy 6:14-16 KJV) Repeat after me --- There is no other king because Jesus is Lord.     Lastly God has also revealed this same powerful revelation to John in the Book of Revelation during the great revelation.  In the book, it is mentioned twice verbatim.  First, in chapter 17 and again in chapter 19.  Let’s look at both of those scriptures.  “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14 KJV) Notice in this text that we that follow Jesus are called, chosen, and faithful.  I declare and decree that you are called, chosen, and faithful.  Two chapters later Jesus says the same thing.  Here it reads “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelation 19:15-16 KJV) Here it is written on His clothes and body.  I am believing for us to see Jesus like that again.   Repeat after me --- There is no other king because Jesus is Lord.     In conclusion, God will reveal Himself to us from this point on as King of Kings, Lord of Lords, and the King of Glory!!! He is doing it in my life right now.   Repeat after me --- There is no other king because Jesus is Lord.     Thank you for reading another Bishop’s Buzz.  A buzz is not a buzz unless you share it!
