Bag Lady what Cha going do with all them Bags?

Today, we heard a powerful message both in song and the preached word. We heard the musical sermons of Minister Tonoa Smith and we were challenged the Preached word of Minster Unitha L. Muhammad. Sister Muhammad creatively used the song Bad Lady by recording artist  Eryka Badu to illustrate our lives filled with too much negative material in the spiritual bags of our lives. Sister Muhammad preached deliverance from the spiritual weights of fear, anger, and rage anchored by regret. The liberating power of the Holy Spirit and faith in the resurrected Christ is offered as a weight lifting solution to the baggage of our lives. 

Galatians 2:20  20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:20, New King James Version

We were taught that once we allow the Holy Spirit to bear fruit in and through our lives we can move quickly toward our God given Goals. Galatians 5:20-24.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. (Galatians 5:22-24, New King James Version)

Today if you sense this brief description of Min. Muhammad's message is speaking into your life then take the time to download this powerful message  and share it with your friends. 

The Worship Experience:

The preached Word of God: 

Be sure to listen to the whole message and pray a  prayer of deliverance with Minister Unitha L. Muhammad

"A Word to the Wise is Sufficient"

"A Word to the Wise is Sufficient" was an oft quoted saying of my beloved father the Late Hon. Yahya B.A. Muhammad. He would use the cryptic phrase almost as a warning. If he saw someone doing the wrong thing or going down a dangerous path he would speak a word of experience and advice to the person or persons and seal his admonition with the phrase a "A Word to the Wise is sufficient." There were times when I did not heed his wise advise and as a result I suffered the consequence of not receiving the "sufficient" word or the words that is just as much as is need to avoid the pain and suffering cause by ignoring the wise words of my elder.

It was in the light of this memory of my father that I taught my "Woman's Day" message. I had been challenged earlier in the week by the dynamic wise words of First Lady of West Angeles Church of God in Christ and wife of Bishop Charles Blake. Sister Mae Blake was teaching, at her annual luncheon "A Day in May with Mae," on the things that she learned from her Mother. I was moved by her message and I learned a great deal. In the same week my wise wife First Lady Unitha L. Muhammad of LA Community Church pointed my attention to a very disturbing video she had come across where some you men gone wild were instruction elderly women to smoke crack cocaine as an experiment to determine who had the best "product" of death and destruction. In these two contrasting imaged of womanhood I drew my sermonic message and interactive bible study. I hope that you will take the time to listen to these powerful messages and allow the word of God to be you word from the Wise that is enough to transform you life and lifestyle. The message is taken from the biblical text: Proverbs 14:1

 1   The wise woman builds her house,
      But the foolish pulls it down with her hands. 
       (Proverbs 14:1, New King James Version) and Titus 2:3-5  1-6Your job is to speak out on the things that make for solid doctrine. Guide older men into lives of temperance, dignity, and wisdom, into healthy faith, love, and endurance. Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don't want anyone looking down on God's Message because of their behavior. Also, guide the young men to live disciplined lives.  (Titus 2:3-5, The Message)

I hope that I have peaked your interest in listening to the full sermon and Bible Study.

Are you Close Enough... John 19:25-27

In this sermon we continue our Mother's Day message entitled THANK YOU Mommy pt.2, by asking the questions Where would we be with our our mothers? and  Are you close enough to your children to know their friends and their God? We take the lessons learned from the example of Mary the mother of Jesus standing at the  foot of the cross and wondering did she hear God correctly concerning her special child? 

Follow this link:

If you like the sermon the Bible Study is even better. We also add along with this interactive study of the message "Close Enough" we also answer the question how do we understand Biblical tithing in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament.

It can happen to you too... David is proof that if you stay focused on the will of God for your life He will bring it to pass... We celebrate David's accomplishment and we too  creatively stand still and see what the LORD will bring about in our lives and in the lives of the people that we love and serve.

Word Study:
“One of the names for God in the Bible is the Hebrew word El-Shadai. It appears in scripture as, The Almighty God. This does not describe him as just a powerful God, but rather, the all-sufficient one. The literal translation defines him as “The multi- breasted one.”

How to Choose a Good Bible for Personal Reading or Bible Study

This teaching is a response to questions asked in our Thursday night Bible about the original language of the Bible and the versions that come from it came to be. The other question this bible study answers is what is considered a good Bible? How does the King James Bible fit in the discussion? It there a good modern English Bible?  

In this lesson I provided several types of bible for our class to handle and review. Later in the lesson I review the article choosing a Bible By Dr. Daniel B. Wallace. He was one of my Greek professors at Dallas Theological Seminary. I hope that you will enjoy the lesson and share it with your friends. Click on the link to hear the teaching:

I Got Everything I need... or Wait For it ....part 2

James teaches that the person that continuously allows themselves to doubt God and be in disharmony with what He has already revealed to them, then they are like people in a dinky boat floating on the waves of the turbulent sea being thrown around like a basketball on a good passing team.  Its like WE are being handled by the trials and tossed by every passing thought like a basket ball on a great passing team. 

The biblical word picture that James gives is of a waves of a sea but not the mild waves that we see when we go to the beach…no this wave is a dashing or surging wave, a violent agitation of the sea like a continuous uninterrupted session of Tsunami like waves. That are

driven by the Wind…This is not holy winds these are evil winds…. These are the winds that knocked Peter off the water walking experience.

These are the winds of distraction, taking our attention off of God and on to ourselves…. (We begin looking at the size of the problems rather than the size of our God and we find ourselves drowning in the sea of our doubt.)

James in this book is teaching that the person who is divided in his or her mind about God and His positive desires and designs toward us is like a plastic bag on the highway…have you ever seen that plastic bag that every car passing pushes the plastic bag into the air and tosses it into the next coming car.

And Tossed (by Wind)

The word picture is a person being  tossed to and fro, in their mind….

This persons mind is wavering in uncertainty between hope and fear, between doing and not doing a thing.

The Bible teaches that a person like this is NOT to expect anything from the LORD…. 
Instead of waiting for it don’t wait… nothing is coming for you…You in you wavering double minded self will not receive anything.

In fact you will be unstable in all your ways…marriage, relationships, career, school, business and ministry. You my friend will be unstable in everything; because all these things are affected by a wavering mind. James closes that section with a Maxim: “A double minded man is unstable in all is ways” 
a δψυχος dipsychos dē'-psü-khos 1) double minded (Two Souled)

a) wavering, uncertain, doubting
b) divided in interest ( he is like the lover who loves his or her spouse yet has allowed their mind to get caught up “in love with” an interloper some outsider then their mind is all confused and the person actually become unstable in all their ways.

A two souled man is a κατστατος, ä-kä-tä'-stä-tos. An κατστατος is a Person who is unstable, inconstant, restless in ALL their ways  (i.e. manner) of thinking, feeling, deciding.

SINGLEMINDEDNESS has its consequences and blessings. You have to stand behind your decision and accept the fall out good or bad. Singleminded will also bless you because it will keep you on track to avoid distractions.

SINGLEMINDEDNESS has its consequences and blessings. You have to stand behind your decision and accept the fall out good or bad. Singleminded will also bless you because it will keep you on track to avoid distractions.

There is Good News for you my unstable, inconstant and restless friend. You can be repaired. You can enter into the rest of God…. You can be focused and made one mind in God... You can decide to follow Jesus in His ways… You can ask God Today for the wisdom you need and do not vacillate in your decision to trust him and believe. He will come through for you….

Let the Prayer of Faith Heal you today…Ask for wisdom and anything else you need from God today….

REMEMBER SOLOMON when he lacked wisdom he asked in a dream and he received.  Read. 1 Kings 3:9-28
