“It’s Time to Plant”

Bishop Houstons weekend word picture

Praise the Lord Beloved!!! Another weekend has arrived on our doorstep.
Hallelujah!!!! 😀

One of the scriptures I read this morning came from 1 Peter 1:23 and it says: “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.”

You know, speaking for myself and the worldly life I lived in the past, allows me to speak the Word of God without any conviction. You see, I’m a living proof a walking testimony when I say, you won’t really get excited about the Word of God until you realize that it’s more than just a collection of divinely inspired promises. It’s a living force that literally carries within it, the power to make those promises to become a reality in your life.

Now the question that stands at hand is: Is it tough for you to believe such a thing is possible? Well if you said yes, then I say to you Beloved, “IT SHOULDN’T BE.” You see, you see it happen in the natural world all the time.

Allow me to give you a quick example – If I were to put a watermelon seed in your hand and tell you that within that tiny, dry seed lies the power to produce a stalk thousands of times bigger than the seed, to produce leaves and roots and a round or oval shaped, green watermelon, you wouldn’t have any trouble believing that, would you? That’s because, you know from experience that even though that little seed doesn’t look like a watermelon factory, but, somehow, given the right environment, it will become one.

Beloved, Jesus says the Word of God works by that same principle. There’s miraculous power within it. It’s a seed that, once planted by faith in a human heart (mind and emotions), will produce more blessings than you can imagine. 😀

Beloved, once you grasp that, you’ll get extremely excited about the Word of God. That’s what happened to me. 😀

Over 20 years ago, I caught a glimpse of what that Word could do. I caught a glimpse of the power within it. Before long, I had a Bible in every room of my house, a Bible in my car, and a tape player or a Christian television program and gospel music playing nearly all the time.

I spent every possible moment in the Word of God because I wanted the power of that Word inside me more than I wanted anything else in the world. I knew it would blow the limits off my life. I’m speaking of limits that had held me back and kept me down for years. I knew that when I read it, I wasn’t just reading, I was planting seeds. Seeds of prosperity, seeds of health, seeds of protection and seeds of victory for every area of my life.

Beloved, this weekend, don’t treat the Word of God like a book. It’s not!!! It’s a spiritual seed that has the supernatural power within it to produce the harvest of a lifetime. This weekend, get excited about it and start planting now!!!! 😀

Have a blessed Weekend Everyone!!! 😀



Focal Scripture (Psalm 81:10, NLT)
“Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it”

Beloved, how open is your mouth right now? In other words, are you expecting God to fill you and increase you beyond your boundaries? Are you ready for Him to satisfy your needs and wishes with good things?

Allow me to give you an example. Think about a baby bird. When they are ready to eat, they open their mouths wide. They trust that they will be fed. They expect it. They look for it. They’re ready for it. Well this should be the same way with us.

Beloved, we need to keep our spiritual mouths open by expecting the goodness of God to bring us gratification.

You must always stay positive, because negative thinking is like closing your mouth. And you know what they say about a closed mouth – “a closed mouth won’t get fed”.

Beloved, Jesus is saying today, “Why don’t you take down the boundaries?” Why don’t you trust and believe for supernatural opportunities? That little bird waiting for food isn’t concerned about where the mother is going to get it from. It isn’t concerned about how she’s going to dig it up. No!!! that bird just opens its mouth, trusting and waiting. Beloved, why don’t you do the same today? Trust, believe and have all confidence that God is working behind the scenes. All you have to do is open your mouth wide today. Believe me, you won’t be disappointed. God is faithful to His Word, and He will fill you and satisfy you when you put your trust in Him!!!
Amen? AaaaMen!!! 😀

My Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, as you depart from this word, may the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 😀

Bishop Houston’s “Weekend Word”

Black history Month Weekend word

Praise the Lord Beloved!!! Another weekend and what a great day to serve God!!!

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with a young man and he told me he trusted Jesus, but he didn’t trust the others writers of the Bible. He went on to explain and give his reasons. I let him say all that he had to say. He criticized all the writers from the Old Testament to the New Testament.

Then I told him that I had a problem with his logic.

Beloved, Jesus trusted the Bible. EVERY WORD OF IT!!!
He taught that the Bible was a unique book, above all the others.

Jesus said in Matthew 5:18 (NIV), “For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished”.

Jesus says the Bible will last until the end of time. It will accomplish what God wants to accomplish in this world. In John 10:35a (NLT) Jesus said, “And you know that the Scriptures cannot be altered.” Beloved, Jesus proclaimed the truth of the Bible. And when Jesus talks about the truthfulness of the Bible, we need to listen. You see, when Jesus talked about the Bible with people, he would often base his argument about the truth of the Bible on a single sentence or even a single word from the Bible. He believed every single sentence, every single word of Scripture. So, if I trust Jesus, why wouldn’t I trust the Bible? 😀

When Jesus talked about the Bible, he talked about it as if the people and events in it were real. He talked about all the prophets being real. He talked about Daniel being real. Jesus believed in Noah and everything that happened with the flood. He believed in Adam and Eve. He believed in the tragedy of Sodom and Gomorrah. He believed that Jonah was swallowed by a large fish.

Beloved, if Jesus really believed in Jonah, then I should, too. I don’t know how God created a fish that could swallow a guy, but he did.

I trust what’s in the Bible because Jesus trusted in it. Beloved this weekend trust what’s in the Bible and let it change your life.

Have a Blessed Weekend Everyone.

“Jesus a Game Changer”

Hebrews 8:6-13 (NLT)

6 But now Jesus, our High Priest, has been given a ministry that is far superior to the old priesthood, for he is the one who mediates for us a far better covenant with God, based on better promises.

7 If the first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no need for a second covenant to replace it. 8 But when God found fault with the people, he said:

“The day is coming, says the Lord,when I will make a new covenant
with the people of Israel and Judah.

9 This covenant will not be like the oneI made with their ancestors
when I took them by the handand led them out of the land of Egypt.
They did not remain faithful to my covenant,so I turned my back on them,
says the Lord.

10 But this is the new covenant I will make
with the people of Israel on that day, says the Lord:
I will put my laws in their minds,and I will write them on their hearts.
I will be their God,and they will be my people.

11 And they will not need to teach their neighbors,
nor will they need to teach their relatives,
saying, ‘You should know the Lord.’
For everyone, from the least to the greatest,
will know me already.

12 And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.”

13 When God speaks of a “new” covenant, it means he has made the first one obsolete. It is now out of date and will soon disappear.

“To God Be The Glory!!!”
