"Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.In addition, we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, who are called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified." (Romans 8:26-30).
His presence was overwhelming. Compassion and forgiveness for others possessed my heart, especially those with whom I did business with.
The atmosphere in the office changed and there were perfect peace and quiet. Immediately, a supernatural change took place. The change came with the anointing:
1) To share the Gospel (verbal and written communication) with everyone.
2) To lead people to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
3) To teach people to forgive without compromising the righteousness of God in them.
4) To communicate God's truth (His Word) while operating my business.
5) To continue to provide life, health and property/casualty insurance as well as related information in a Godly atmosphere.
6) To encourage and advocate Healthy living.
7) To evangelize and teach the Word of God as we minister to the Next Generation (R.I.S.E. Bible Study).
The above needs took precedent in the business on that beautiful day in March. However, the people that I was particularly interested in had no personal relationship with Jesus Christ! Some looked depressed, frustrated, angry and enraged. Others were malicious against someone or something that had hurt them. I started listening to people with a sympathetic heart, praying and telling them about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and this has been going on since then.
R.I.S.E. Ministries believe that through the ministry, we will be able to accomplish the work God has called us to do in His Glory. God is in charge. God is in control. We believe in Him, His Son Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit!
In one of the Bible versions (NIV), it states that "Single-minded commitment to Jesus Christ identifies a disciple. The very purpose of life is to know Christ and to make Him known. All other achievements and accomplishments fade into insignificance by comparison. It is the highest of all privileges to have fellowship with Jesus Christ, to share Him with others, to bear suffering on His account, to reflect His character, and to honor His name.
It is the greatest of all responsibilities to be committed to Jesus Christ. It ought to be the highest priority of life. It is an ever-increasing demand and never-ending pilgrimage. The result of such a relationship is to experience His complete sufficiency and absolute supply. Jesus is Lord".
In the Apostle Paul's letter to the church in Philippi, he said "But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead." (Philippians 3:7-11).
When the Holy Spirit takes residence in your body, you will not be able to act as the world anymore. Your lifestyle will change forever! As long as you allow HIM to lead the way, He will lead you to victory and you will rise above your circumstances. He will make sure that you finish the work God has called you to do. Surely, therefore I am rejoicing, (even when it seemed as if a fatal illness I experienced, could have caused my instant death) because Paul said in Philippians 1:6 "Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will see it to completion until the day of Jesus Christ."

Please feel free to browse through these links and as you do so, may the God of Grace and Mercy meet your spiritual needs in our Ministry's website. God loves you and we love you too. We are at your service through the resourceful links captioned above. We are constantly praying that every time you stop by our site, you will find R.I.S.E. Ministries in your daily living as you try to conform to the image and reflect the character of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul said, "Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things, which are behind, and reaching forward to those things, which are ahead. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:12-14). He also said, "While the mind is on earthly things, our citizenship is heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body" (Philippians 3:19-21).
We are eagerly working for God, watching for Jesus' return, walking with the Holy Spirit, and waiting for that special day when all of us will stand before His Excellency; God the Father. He will say to each of us, "Well done good and faithful servant, enter into my Heaven". However, remember: Jesus said to Thomas, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
We look forward for your prayer, volunteer service/talent, and financial support as we respond to the lost and needy through our financial support and material donations to other ministries, missions and churches, who are spreading the word of God through different types of media or physically taking it to different areas of the world; in serving God's purpose (Matthew 25:31-46). RISE Ministries is proud to be in a central position for the Glory of God!
May God bless you, Brothers and Sisters.
