It’s A New Year! 2018 — My Year of New Beginnings

by Chris Allen

At this year’s combined New Year’s revival hosted Greater Mt. Calvary and First Baptist of Glenarden, God spoke rhema words to me through each speaker in such a cohesive and distinct way that did not just give me marching orders for 2018, but spoke directly to my destiny! But, because of the essence of time, I can’t share everything, but I want to share with you three things the Lord spoke to me.

  1. Through Bishop Rudolph Mckissick, Jr. – You Have The Assignment to Carry Greatness.

God was speaking to me about the assignment He gave me eight years ago while attending a multiple sclerosis with my mother, who had been diagnosed with the disease. As the presenters were sharing information, there was an interruption. The Holy Spirit started downloading a vision that I wrote on the pad provided for us to take notes on. By the time He finished, Anointed Women In Christ (AWIC) was birthed. I was so excited I couldn’t wait to get out of there to share with my BFF what God had given me. And we hit the ground running! We registered the business ministry, developed a team, set the date and signed the contract for October 7-9, 2011 at the National Conference Center. How many of you know that God declares the end before the beginning, but there is also the middle and in the middle of it, I had to go through this to get to that, which is the second word God spoke to me.

  1. Through Evangelist Joyce Rodgers I Had to Go Through This to Get That.

I had to go through the separation, the divorce, the betrayal, being lied on, being overlooked, being denied, being mistreated, being talked about. All of those things God allowed, but they all had purpose. And lastly, He spoke Continue reading

Keep Pedaling and Keep Pressing One!

This is a repost of a message from 2011 because sometimes we need a reminder!

by Sharman J. Monroe

I decided to break the routine in my daily exercise and do cycling on Wii© Fit Plus.  Although this is a video game, it simulates the real deal of bicycling and is a lower body cardio workout.  To do cycling, you stand on the Wii board and pedal, lifting your feet up and down, just like you are riding a bicycle.  You ride your bicycle around Wii Island on a course you chose.  The course can be timed or not, simple or difficult; you pedal uphill (yeah, you have to work to get uphill!) and downhill (cruise!), navigate curves (you have brakes) and pedal through sand (ah yeah, you have to work to get through sand!).  You must locate flags along the course and pick them up. When you have picked up all the flags for your course, you pedal to the finish line.

Since I wanted a 30 minutes plus cardio routine, I selected the Expert course which is not timed and difficult.  Oh I forgot to tell you…you don’t where the flags are located until you are cycling the course.  There is a small round map at the bottom right of the screen showing you where you are on the island and the flag locations.  You press 1 on the Wii controller to see what is around you.  But the map doesn’t show everything; it only shows a small area at a time.  You have to keep pedaling in a direction and keep pressing 1 so you can navigate the island, avoiding cliffs, lava pits and lakes, and find the flags.  You can pedal in a direction for a while only to discover there are no flags nearby.

As I was playing the game, I heard this scripture: Continue reading

It’s Time to Put That Away

by Chris Allen

Ephesians 4:30-32 (NKJV): Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

    I’m sure everyone can remember this phrase growing up: “Alright now, it’s time to put that away.” And it would usually come at a time when we weren’t ready to. Paul tells us in the book of Ephesians, that it is now time to put off, put on, and put away: “Now that we have put on the new life of Christ, we should no longer be walking as the Gentiles do, if we have truly learned Christ. We should put off the old self, which belongs to the former way of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and we should be renewed in the spirit of our minds, and to put on the new self, which is created after the likeness of God in true righteousness” (v. 4:17-24, author’s paraphrase). Paul also says that anger has Continue reading
