Recently, I was praying and the Lord gave me two Scriptures. I found the Scriptures He gave me and at first, I was a little confused. But I knew the Lord wanted to teach me something.
Luke 2:14 Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.
Luke 12:51 Do you suppose I come to give peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division.
My first thought was I found some contradictory Scriptures, but I knew better than to believe that. So I continued to pray and to let the Holy Ghost teach me the truth. When Heaven announced there would be peace on earth at the birth of Jesus, this peace would be between God and man. Man had no peace with God since the day Adam sinned. Peace between God and man would be restored at the birth of Christ.
After Jesus was anointed with the Holy Ghost He began to preach the Gospel His Heavenly Father gave Him. The Gospel of Christ was divisive because He was divisive. Very few would believe Jesus was Messiah, if He was the Christ then everything He said was true. Those few who did believe were divided from those who believed not. The division Jesus referred to was between believers and non-believers. When men disagree with one another there can be no peace between them.
1 John 5:10 He that does not believe God has made Him a liar.
Men who refuse to believe God and His Word are calling God a liar! This is not the unforgivable sin, but such as these are in danger of judgment. Calling God a liar will not gain you a place in Heaven and it will not invite the favor of God into your life.
John 14:11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very miracles I work.
A man has to have a pretty hard heart in order to deny a visible proven miracle. Jesus worked many miracles, but people refused to believe His identity. Not even God Himself can change a hard heart unless the man’s willing. Those who believe have peace with God those who don’t believe have no such peace.
Romans 12:18 Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.
It is very difficult to live in peace with men who do not have peace with God. We must do our best, but it is not possible. Would ISIS stop trying to kill us if we leave them alone? NO! You may be the nicest person in the world, but someone hates you! They will hate you until they have peace with God.

I give all my tithes to the Lord, I am building His house.
I am moved by love and obedience, now He will bless my house.
I will bloom where He planted me and I will do whatsoever He commands.
I will be refilled with the Holy Spirit and I will finish the works of Jesus.
I have favor with God and men, Father loves me and the devil fears me.
Bring restoration of all that was lost …
1. Restore lost time, opportunities, lost health and lost relationships.
2. Bring the transformation needed for each one to come to wholeness.
3. Once they are set free help them stay free, keep them from becoming entangled again.
