The Life of Jesus through the Father’s eyes

The Ministry of Jesus: Matthew 4: 12- 17

The Lord God said: Jesus wanted to help people and minister to them.

Jesus begin to Preach repentance.

Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Jesus wanted to help people: Matthew 4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

Jesus went through the process, student of the torah/word of God, Jesus wanted to please the Father by doing everything the right way; Being baptized, fasting 40 days and fasting nights, being led into the wilderness, so He could be tested by the devil (God said Jesus was actually tested, not tempted) and Jesus is ready to minister and help people with their needs.
Healing, Deliverance, Love, Peace, Truth, Revelation, Understanding, Covenant Relationship with the Father, so much He gave to the people.

Jesus calls His Disciples and start to teach them also and get them prepared for when He is no longer with them.

Jesus walked in Love for His Father and Love for people: The two greatest commandments.
I was talking to the Lord one day, and I was receiving revelation about our covenant and I said to God “So that’s why Jesus “had” to come so we could have a relationship with God” and The Lord spoke to me and said, that’s was not correct, He said “Jesus did not have to come, Jesus wanted to come” …

That was a big difference. Jesus wanted to come for us…
We see that Jesus gets ready to go forward in minister and His focus on helping the people.
The first thing Jesus does is to Preach Repentance.
Preaching repentance is Love… Repentance helps us to get access to God the Father and also helps to remove the devil and demons from our lives. Repentance removes the legal rights the enemy has to attack us in certain areas.
Jesus came with the recipe of FREEDOM and a Relationship with God the Father “Repentance”
Repentance is Love.

Jesus show us Love. He wanted to help people…
His Love for us was PERFECT Love.
His love for us was so Pure that He wanted to come and lay His life down for us.

John 10:15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
John 10:17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
1 John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

There is no greater love.
The Life of Jesus was to Help people.
Jesus is Our Example:
Part #1 Focus on Pleasing the Father
Part #2 Focus on Helping People

Everything Jesus did was because of these two things, He Loved His Father and wanted to Please God, and He Loved people and wanted to help us.

Security in Things.. Riches and Money.

Media Kit Photo6 (2)My Journey as a Minimalist:

As I sit here with the Lord researching for my next book. I came across a bible scripture that stood out to me, like most do…

And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. Mark 4:18-19 

In Mark 4, Jesus is sharing the parable of the “Sower.” The sower sows the word of God and the enemy comes to steal the word.

In verse 18, the word is sown among the thorns and in verse 19 the word is unfruitful when sown among the thorns because the person who has the thorns are so focused on worldly possessions. These people are deceived by money/riches and because of this, the word of God is not”effective” in their lives.

The Lord told me when I read this scripture, that “they” (the people) felt safe in their riches/money. They didn’t feel safe with Him.

Money can make us feel secure and safe.

We feel a sense of security when all the bills are paid and when we have a lot of money in our bank accounts, but our security as Christians should not come from things/money.

This mindset must to change. Christians should feel safe because we trust God to take care of us, not because of a job or money we have in the bank(riches).

Matthew 6:25-34  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?   Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?  Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?  And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:   And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.   Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?   Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?   (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.   But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.   Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. 

This is basically saying that we as Christians should not focus on “taking care” of ourselves because God will take care of our needs. When we know this, then we can focus on helping those in need.

The enemy will deceive us and cause us to be afraid, worried or stressed out because of the lack of money.

Fear and worry reveals that we don’t trust God to take care of us.

Let’s change that mindset today. Trust God to take care of you not money or riches.

The Word of the Lord brings Peace

Today, I received some very devastating news and it shook me to the core.

Before I knew it, pain, hurt and panic hit me in seconds.

I asked God, “What should I do?”

I heard Him say, “Relax”…. So I jumped up, and said.. “Lord, help me!”

I tried to relax my body but nothing happened, so I started to ask the Lord to “fill my mind, heart, spirit, soul and body with His peace” and I started to feel His presence consume my entire being and I was calm.

WOW, it happened so fast, I couldn’t control the emotions ,so I inquired of the Lord as fast as I could and He came through for me, like always, and He will come through for you also.

Whenever you’re in a situations that is negative or demonic and emotions hit you, just call on the Lord for His help.

Relax, and then Ask Him to fill your mind, heart, spirit, soul and body with His peace. Relax, then you can receive from Him.

Rest assured, He is there with you every step of the way.

Be encouraged today, I am.

Bless you.

The Promise Keeper..

Today, I was driving to the grocery store and found myself trapped in a storm.

On one side, I could see “very dark” storm-clouds and on the other side of town, the sky was beautiful and sunny. As I looked at both sides of the sky, there was a rainbow reaching across both sides.

Before I knew it, the storm hit the car and the rain fell so hard I could not see. I asked the Lord if “I would be okay” and I heard Him say “Yes.” Right after I heard the Lord say “Yes” I saw the end of the rainbow rest on the hood of my car, and remain there as I drove down the street… It was the coolest thing ever!

I stopped focusing on the storm and started to laugh and focus on the rainbow.

The rainbow is God’s promise to you and I. We can trust Him to take Good care of us during the “storms of life” we become trapped in.

Focus on the rainbow (God’s Promise) and not the storm. He is a Promise Keeper….

Be encouraged.

Thinking Big with God #BigGod

Last night the Lord told me to “Think Big”…

I came from a very poor background. I remember my grandmother bathing me in a bucket in front of a wood burning stove as a kid. I also remember being Very thankful and excited when a neighbor would give me “hand-me-down” clothes from her daughter. It was like Christmas to me when I received those clothes. They were nicer than what I had and it felt really good. All I can remember is.. I was happy with little and I didn’t need much.

I have always lived with that mentality, of being happy and thankful for the little things. I will always be thankful and happy for the little things but it has hindered me from desiring or wanting more.

The Lord shared with me a few months ago, that I was content where I was and He didn’t want me to be content because He wanted more for me. He also shared that by me being “content” I wouldn’t “Desire, Seek, Pursue, and Fight for what He wanted.

We have to desire the things God has planned for us, if we don’t desire His plans, they can’t come to pass.

God has HUGE plans for us, We have to get the vision, desire it, seek it, pursue it and fight for it.

Don’t be content with your plans but desire God’s plans.

My new quest is to “Think Big” with God… It will be a challenge but all things are possible with God. Be encouraged. Blessings.

Drugs vs God's Peace

As I spend time with the Lord and experience His perfect peace, I said to the Lord “I feel High” and I thought of all the pain pills and alcohol I use to drink before my conversion.

I loved the feeling I got from pills and alcohol. It was a peaceful feeling and no matter what was happening in life, it gave me a numbing feeling, like I didn’t have any cares in the world.

The Peace of God is so much better than drugs and alcohol. When His peace consumes even your bones, it’s an unbelievable high, the best high ever.

Jesus is the Prince of peace. There is no anxiety in peace, no fear, no anger, no jealously. It’s a place every Christians should seek to dwell in.

Let the Peace of God dwell in your Minds and Soul today.

Pray this prayer:

Heavenly Father, I ask that You fill my mind with Your peace, in the name of Jesus Christ. (Say this 10 times or more, until you feel the peace of God consume your mind) Then spend time in His presence (worshiping, reading His Word, etc.)

Enjoy His peace daily.

Apostle Michelle Peterson
