Be A Contender For Christ by Nina Keegan

Be a Warrior of the Word! 

Jude 1:3
 Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to Contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.

  Are you a contender or a contestant in this life? God fights for us every second of every day..  The question remains, Do you fight for Him?

 As Christians we're called to be contenders. We are to contend and fight for the things of God and embrace the power that comes from Him and Him alone. 

  It all revolves around God and our relationship with Him that is only available to us through salvation, this comes through the death and resurrection of God's  beloved son Jesus.

  It all comes down to that,  what Jesus did for us and because of that, He has given us the ability and the grace and the empowerment to do what we need to do for the Lord here on Earth! 

  We need to contend with our discomfort, our persecution and our hurting hearts, and be sold out, humble, and faithful servants for The Lord regardless of what the repercussions  and the backlash will be. 

  We can be in the world but not of the world ..we're not just put in this world to make everyone else happy,  we're to contend for the things of Heaven and bring to Earth that which Jesus died for us to have. We as the body of Christ can stand together and contend for these things .. Freedom, justice, the unalienable rights our forefathers so diligently contended for and declare Revival!  

  We have the unmerited ability to command these very things, and the blessings of all of Heaven to be present here on earth.

  Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven... The Bible says that greater works will we do than even Jesus himself because He was just one in Human flesh walking and talking to individuals in one generalized area at a time. We now through His death and resurrection have the Holy Spirit living in us; we do not have to go around looking for Jesus,  Jesus is in Heaven contending with us and for us. He is interceding for us with His Father in Heaven. Additionally, as Christians, we simultaneously because of the of the Holy Spirit living inside of us have all His power that comes wrapped in that divine gift to be everywhere at once.. 

Yes, through Christ living in us, He can now be everywhere at once doing those greater works and using us to believe these truths and contend for them.
 Great are the things can we do because we as Christians now all have the supernatural qualifications and abilities through Christ to accomplish the works of God! To Him be all glory.

   We have a great commission to usher Jesus back!  We are the ambassadors of Christ, His Earthly army placed on this worldly battleground muddled with hatred and intolerance. Call out the victory! Pray!  Ask and never stop asking.
 The toughest battles can be fought and won on our knees in prayer.. 

  The Bible says that the violent take it by force.. We must stand!  We must stand for His will or we fall for everything else... 

 The meaningful will ultimately become meaningless as the world becomes brazenly desensitized to the plight of a nation choosing to abandon God..

    I for one, do not want to be a mere contestant in life but I want to be a contender I want to be the eyes, the ears, the mouthpiece of God, His hands, and feet that are doing His will here on earth. 

   It is not about us ...but it's about what Jesus did for us! 
We must make a concise,deliberate, effort to live for Him and fight for Him in this life here and now! 

     Be a warrior of His Word! 
  We live on Earth today.. This present time is but a mere spec compared to eternity ...we must live for eternity and make all of our decisions with that in mind. 

  FIGHT, CONTEND...come out swinging for what the Bible says we can and will have and be in Him now! 

 Take hold of the promises of God and don't let go!

  Believe for them do not believe the world and what it has to offer; look to the One who created the world and see what He is offering you!

  He is offering you the guarantee of everlasting life in the kingdom of Heaven! 

  Yes be a contender, fight for that.. the ultimate gift! Don't just stand around being a contestant winning the door prizes of life.. Win the grand prize which is salvation and ultimately life spent in the presence of God our Heavenly Father and all His Glory!  It's well worth the fight... Yes..well worth the fight.. STAND! 

 “If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them … you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. I will give you peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid; I will rid the land of evil beasts, and the sword will not go through your land. You will chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you. Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.” Leviticus 26:3

No More Excuses by Nina Keegan

  Is not an excuse really just a little white lie that the enemy blindfolds us with to keep is in medioracy?

A friend of mine was recently telling me that her son just cannot take tests.. He excels in His class work  but when it comes to test taking his mind goes blank and he fails.. This was the reason he was doing so poorly in his classes..

Somewhere along the line this was spoken over him.. Or he just decided it himself;  but over the years it became etched into His mind like a river carves itself through a mountain base..

Deeper and deeper it flows.. Then it's a bonafide reality gripping itself to our leg like a ball and chain... 

 Excuses in our lives give us the permission to settle for less than God's best seems we always have an excuse for our shortcomings, we always have something or someone else to blame for our less than stellar lot in life.

It is never our fault, we continuously brand our insecurities through seemingly justifiable alibis. We declare that this is how it always is for us,for our families..

We inhale the status quo and exhale the mundane. 

Most failures come from from a history of excuses and a lack of perseverance..

 Closed doors don't always mean NO, most of the time they mean that God has a bigger and better door.. We must move forward and keep knocking..

Matthew 7:7
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

 We get so immersed in the past and caught up on old technicalities that we can't see hope staring at us through the dirty windows of our own self appointed limitations..we are confined only by the walls we build ourselves. 

We can get so stuck in the rut of excuses that we even make excuses for our excuses..

the Bible is littered with excuse makers, starting off with Eve claiming it was all the serpents fault and it's erroneous ability to deceive her..

Genesis 3:13
Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

 God is saying enough! 

Enough is enough!  It's time to receive The victory God has in store for you!  You can do all things through Christ who gives you strength!  He can give you supernatural qualifications.. He can cause you to be at the right place at the right time. If you speak life into your situation and speak faith into your circumstances, the favor of God and the blessings of Heaven will chase you down when you stop excusing them away...

The grace of God will supply all you need...consequently, you will have no need for further rationalizations for lack of personal victory in your life.

Trust the Word of God and the plans that He has for your life!  God's plan says He will give you a new hope and a bright future. 

Success will ultimately come to you when your dreams become  bigger than your excuses..

 Put to rest forever the old, makeshift justifications, peel back the layers of excuse after excuse that are holding you back from God's best! Become a new creation in Christ and let the blood of Jesus and His salvation promises justify you, vindicate you and excuse you from your excuses!

Through Christ You are made new and made whole in every area of your life!  Stop excusing away your dreams.. instead grab hold of them, start speaking life into your life...

Let the promises of God settle in your heart and declare these truths and let them override your regrets and rationalizations now! 

When you give up your excuses you will  find your results!

Jeremiah 1:4-10
Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the Lord.” ..

Live Your Potential by Nina Keegan

Jesus is saying to us today,
"Your duty is to go preach about the kingdom of God,"
Luke 9:59-60

Jesus opened the doorway for us to have eternal life in the kingdom of Heaven but if this life we live now is all we can see, then our expectations about life will be very limited.

 When we trust Jesus and believe the promises of life spent in eternity, we will receive supernatural strength  and an overflow of divine courage to STAND for Christ even in grievous and precarious times.

Jesus death and resurrection can establish correctness in our views here in this life.   

The Kingdom of God and eternity should be the focal point and highlight of our salvation in Jesus. It's not just a future Kingdom far beyond our grasp. It is available here and now.

 Jesus died that we could have and enjoy life to the full..
Through Christ we can emulate our truest fullness in all potential.  Fullness in love, health, abundance,  ability, victory, favor, peace, and joy will be discovered and uncovered in our revelations of to whom we belong and for what purposes we were designed. 

This eternity based knowledge shall begin in the desirous  hearts of Gods trusted and faithful servants.
As it was present 2000 years ago the Kingdom of God, is as present this day in us.

The Kingdom of God is at hand we were born for times such as these.. Hold these beliefs for yourselves; do not waiver and do not grow weary in well doing ...
STAND..take a stand and usher in Jesus in all His radiant glory!

"Jesus we will follow you wherever you go!"

Let every decision you make be one made with eternity in mind.. What does eternity look like for you if you step away from the Word of God and fall into the world... Sin is an enjoy now, pay later plan of entrapment sold  under the  false pretense  of "it's not that big of a deal"...

The problem here is.. We never know when later is coming.... 

Eternity is a long time to get this Wrong...

Live life with a complete abandonment to this world and it's temporary pleasures, seek God and His Kingdom.. Live a live enriched in Faith.. Believe! 

Are you ready? Jesus is coming back...

It's time we reevaluate our lives..
It's time to
Surrender.. !!  

God bless!

Jeremiah 29:11 (MSG) I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out – plans to take care of you, not to abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.

Ephesians 2:10 (AMP) For we are God’s own handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us…that we should walk in them living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live.

John 10:10 (AMP) I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

Ephesians 3:20 (AMP) Now to Him Who…is able to carry out His purpose and do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams. 

Philippians 2:13 (AMP) It is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and  delight.

Psalm 103:5 (NLT) He fills my life with good things.

Prayer for Personal Revival by Nina Keegan

"Father.. Create in us this Day a divine urgency,  a holy discontent.. A reverential dissatisfaction that would manifest in us a personal revival. 

We seek your presence in  complete adoration as we open our hearts to receive your Holy correction delivered and bound in your unconditional love.

...Break us, soften us and humble us to receive your redeeming spirit. Ready us for the revival we seek.

  I ask for a Godly interruption of our wrong and limited thinking, increase our intersession for our own hearts and souls..

 Wise men welcome correction and correction received brings significant growth and unlimited change. 

Holy Spirit infuse us, consume us with your perfect truth and purest wisdom. Open our hearts in a beseeching revelation, break the routine..the mundane.. sever the tie that numbs us to your what your heart wants.. 

We wholeheartedly invite you into our lives with your decisive plan of action for deliberate and concise change in us.. Do it again. It's time for a glorious Revival! Do it.. Do the miraculous again! 

Enlarge us in the territory we are about to enter and occupy.. Let our thoughts be steadfast and in complete unison with your perfect will.

 Let your seeds of change be forever planted in the fertile soil of our desperately yearning hearts!  Revival ... Bring Revival  in us , through us , and for us! Yes...Do it again! 

 We  wholeheartedly praise  you and thank you sweet Father.. In Jesus name we pray..Amen"

"Set Free" by Nina Keegan

When you capture heaven's information you become a powerhouse for God.. there's power in the name Jesus (yashua) it sets people free from the oppression of darkness, it sets people free from anxiety, fear, infirmity insomnia, anger, depression and lack..

Jesus didn't have to go and pray for hours and hours, He just commanded things by the power of His Father through Him and in Him to be done! 

When Jesus went to be with His Father, He sent the Holyspirit to be with us and in us.. And Jesus said "Greater things you will do than I have done.." We have the same power, even GREATER because Jesus is now seated at His Fathers right hand interceding for us.. How unfathomable is this and yet absolutely true.. Believe.. Know what's available to you in Christ! 

"I tell you the truth. The person that believes in me will do the same things I have done. Yes! He will do even greater things than I have done. Why? Because I am going to the Father. And if you ask for anything in my name, I will do it for you. Then the Father's glory will be shown through the Son. If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it."

— John 14:12-14

satan DOES NOT have more power than us ..we are not called to negotiate with the kingdom of darkness.. at the name of Jesus we can be delivered and delivered instantly if we a Christian you cannot have possession of demons but you can have oppression. When we are born again we are new creations in Christ but our minds and souls can still be oppressed.. We once again CANNOT be possessed  because that implies if  you are a new creation in Christ believe in your heart and soul that you can do ALL things through HIM!

 ..You will have dominion over all.. you don't have to cope with the devil; take authority over diseases sicknesses, addictions, depression oppression, cancer or all other forms of demonic bondage.. people can be set free instantly if you receive the kingdom keys that we have been given as children of God.

We can have victory over all darkness ..God is saying that He is purifying His church.. He is releasing a new anointing for healing and the deliverance of His people it's going to be unlike anything the world has seen! Behold the time has come.. the church is entering a time of restoration but first we must believe our identity in Christ, we are children of God and when we believe that we can, in the name of "YASHUA" (JESUS)  be set free instantly.. 

In Genesis 22:17 it says indeed I will greatly bless you and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore and your seed shall possess the gates of their enemies !

John 14:13
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Yes, through Yashua (Jesus) we approach the throne room in spirit and come to the Father in that name .. We come as an ambassador of Christ, we come with the same authority given to us through that name.. We represent Jesus! We hold the keys that can unlock the doors to freedom and deliverance...  There is extreme Power in that name.. 

in Matthew 16:15 Jesus asks but whom do they say that I am?  His identity is questioned.. Know Him! Know Christ's identity because you come in His name in prayer.. We come with God's boldness and greatness built in us with all the power of Heaven backing us .. We come in Jesus!!!! 

    It says upon this rock ( the name of Jesus) I shall build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it! Then  the scripture continues with Jesus giving Peter his identity and said "you are Peter" and gave him His authority... 

 Whatever is bound in heaven is bound here on earth and whatever is loosed in heaven is loosed here on earth ..this is The messianic prophecy fulfilled as our birthright.  We can bind through our authority in Jesus whatever does not belong in our lives.. If it's bound from Heaven we declare it bound from our lives on earth too!  Simultaneously we can set Loose the good.. The blessings, the victories that saturate Heaven to flood us and be loosed on us here on earth!

We have authority and dominion to close any gate of the enemy and to possess any gate in the kingdom of Heaven!   Once again in the scripture above it declares that the gates of hell shall NOT prevail against us. Darkness cannot win!  ..we have the keys to close the doors and lock it out instantly and forever.. Doors of addiction fear, lack, anxiety, worry, oppression and  disease .. Locked all LOCKED! 

We can be set free at the name of Yashua.. we must realize our identity in Christ.. we are children of God, heirs to the throne, and we must take authority over any dark spirit trying to control us in the name of Jesus ! 

satan's  power is one of an identity crisis,  he works through deception and telling us we are something that we are not and that we don't have what we already have which is the authority through Jesus Christ.. 

It says in John 8:32  you should know the truth and the truth shall set you free so if we don't  know our identity in Christ ( the truth) how can we experience victory? Until we undoubtedly know who we are ..and whose we are and realize this absolute truth..only then will Satan have zero ability !! 

Then only then we will realize that we have allowed satan to inhabit a territory in our lives that he has no permission to inhabit.. DO NOT fear the enemy! 

 If you believe in the Word of God the enemy will fear you and you will never Live in bondage again! You are set free by the power of God through Jesus to be used as a deliverer to set others free. A delivered child of God is who you are in Christ,  you can be forever changed through Yashua and His saving grace through the blood. 

We are mighty in the spiritual realm, we have dominion ..we are kings not paupers!  We do not have to be afraid of the enemy anymore!  When he sees us, he sees us in the spiritual realm as a power house for the kingdom of God, he sees us dressed in the full armor of God with a sword (the Word of God) and breastplate surrounded by warring angels.. he will run from us!  Yes, he is scared of us because he flees at the utterance of the name of Jesus because he knows that we have all of heaven's armies as children of God and that we have already won the battle through the blood of Jesus Christ!

 When we fear God we have to fear nothing else ever.. the kingdom of God is inside of us it is forever expanding to the outside of us permeating our domain! We must yield to the Word of God and then everything in our soul that's not of Him will be driven out of us in the name of Jesus! Release the culture of heaven and the power of heaven in your life! 

The demons have to flee! Once  again, etch this in your soul, we have dominion and Sonship over all that is not of God over sickness over lack, over addictions and disease! 
Authority in Jesus Christ is our legal right to act in a certain way!  We are gatekeepers!  We possess the keys and have access to every door... open the doors of prosperity of blessings of health now! 

  It says in Luke 10:19.. take what is ours through the blood of Jesus Christ and demand freedom over every spirit of darkness that is oppressing you today. Plead the blood of Jesus and at that name the enemy MUST FLEE and never return! You are free!  What the Son has set free is free in deed  in Yashua's  name  we do declare Amen

Matthew 16:15-20 

15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter,[a] and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades[b] will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be[c] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be[d] loosed in heaven.” 20 Then he ordered his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.

Surround yourself with a shelter of peace, a haven for refuge in the dismal days as a hiding place and a retreat to sit at God's feet and bask in the glory of worship, praise and awe of entering His transforming presence. 

Soak up God's love and etch it into your very being, fill your cracked heart with God's healing balm of peace.  

Meet  God daily as you seek Him first by coming into a place of absolute Thanksgiving for the enormity of your blessings as you ponder the grand vastness of their numbers..

Phil 4:13

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

“Agree with God, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you

1 John 4:18 ESV 

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Believe God anyway by Nina Keegan

The Bible is very clear that we will reap what we sow.. there's Biblical absoluteness in the law of reciprocity ..we must also believe through God's trusted Word that we cannot out give Him....

what we sow in seed we would also reap in harvest ..We must believe.. No matter how bad things are .. No matter how deep our pit...we should always believe ... Believe God anyway .. 

No matter what we feel like, no matter how defeated things seem.. Faith is a process! Trust God anyway! 

God wants to use you..What God wants to do in your life is only limited by your willingness to surrender to Him. How do I know that? Because the biggest obstacle in my life has been me .. Worry, doubt , lack of Faith.. We must get out of our own way and Give God the freedom and the space to work! 

 Do you believe that there is a whole tree in in a tiny seed ? We sow the seed anyway believing and knowing that eventually a tree would spring forth ..all seeds are sewn (planted) in darkness but eventually the seeds,  through sheer determination and perseverance make their way to the light and flourish... When we sow in tears  we will reap a harvest of Joy.. Believe God anyway ..

whatever you're going through 

if you are in lack, sow a seed of giving no matter how small..God doesn't look at the amount, He looks at the heart  we can always give of our time and talents.. Seeds!! All seeds!!

What do you want God to do for you? Ask Him!!!  Keep on Asking!!  don't insult God by asking too small...  He owns the world..the universe.. sow enormous kingdom size seeds of faith.... BELIEVE!! 

Continuously plant seeds of victory.. don't stay married to your doubts but speak the Word.. God's Holy Living Word (The truth) 

...believe what you say!  speak it! Declare it! believe that God is a man of His Word and He is watchful to perform it..

Who do we think we are we talking to when we pray ? We are talking to the one who owns everything, who created everything ..God, our awesome God who is supreme and almighty.. the great I AM ..the God of all things the one who causes all things to be ..our God shall supply all of our needs according to His riches (Phil 4:19) 
Don't  disqualify yourself ..say it with your mind ... believe it with your heart!  Declare victoriously out loud "I am a candidate for a miracle! I believe ..I believe God anyway...Whether I feel like it or not" 

 God can and will do a work in us and for us ... He is always for us!! God is who He says He is...!! That is something you can most assuredly rely on! in Jesus name we pray .. Amen

“For if you give, you will get! Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use to give – large or small – will be used to measure what is given back to you” Luke 6:38
