The Father’s Love

A Word of encouragement from ML Excellence devotional and books.

1 Thess 2:11-13
11 As you know how we exhorted and encouraged and charged every one of you, as a father does his children,
12 That you would walk worthy of God, who has called you unto his kingdom and glory.
13 For this cause also we thank God without ceasing, because, when you received the word of God which you heard of us, you received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually works also in you that believe.

As I read this scripture today, my heart rejoiced. Because I, like many others Pastors, like the Apostle Paul, have the heart of our heavenly Father, encouraging his spiritual children to be all that God called you to be!

Sometimes, Father’s are loving, sometimes giving advice, and sometimes stern, but just like our heavenly Father, our love for his people will never waiver or fail!

God bless, Pastor Quinn 😇🙏🏾

Prayer and Fellowship Strengthens Relationships

Phil 1:2  Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 
Phil 1:3  I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, 
Phil 1:4  always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, 
Phil 1:5  for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, 
Phil 1:6  being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;.

Blessings all, these words from the Apostle Paul speak volumes of his love for the Lord, the saints and the church.

As I read it, I could relate to every word. Remembering all the saints, praying for them, and appreciating good fellowship in Christ! I have met some wonderful saints over the years, and the thing that brings God’s people together and strengthens relationship is prayer and fellowship!

Paul confirms the word of the LORD spoken by Luke in Acts 2 after Pentecost, when the power of God was poured out in Jerusalem!

Act 2:42, And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 

These are virtues that we all need as individuals and corporately as the church, which strengthen the church, and our walk with Christ! There is an old saying that many of us know. “A family that prays together, stays together.” How many of us know, there is something about the prayer that mends our hearts together as we pray.

In other words, there is an anointing when two or three are gathered together in the name of the LORD, and when we agree as touching, it will be done by our father in heaven! Matt 18:19-20

David said in Psalm 133:1-3, “How good and how pleasant it is when brethren dwell together in unity.” If we could really understand the concept of unity, and understand it isn’t about titles, status, or who has this or that, which means nothing to the LORD, truth be told. But prayer and fellowship will strengthen our relationship!

You see prayer and fellowship are not bound by these things. Because every believer and every church needs prayer and fellowship. If you don’t have either one, you will not survive!

Many times, people break fellowship, and we know it happens at times, but the main thing is to keep the peace of God through love, honor and peace. And then there are some, who don’t like to fellowship! But as a member of the body, we need prayer and fellowship!

The Bible says in Prov 27:17, As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. 

Ecclesiastes, the book of wisdom tells us:

Ecc 4:9  Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. 
Ecc 4:10  For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. 

If we truly understood the power of prayer and fellowship, we would do it more often, because they strengthen relationships, not only in families, friendships but most importantly in the church!

The Bible says that after the people continued in the Apostles doctrine, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayers, that fear came upon every soul!

Acts 2:43,  Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. 

Why? Because they saw the spirit of unity among the people of God.

If your relationship is shaky with another brother or sister, I guarantee prayer and fellowship will shift the friendship, relationship or church atmosphere! Because there is power in prayer and there is power in fellowship!

Let us always stand strong in prayer and in fellowship, praying for one another, and the church. And let us never forget to stand strong in the Word, and follow the Word, because in it we get the victory in Jesus Name!

God bless, Pastor Quinn

Praise The Lord!

Good day ML Excellence friends! Blessings to you all in Jesus name!

The scripture says in:

Psalm 118:24 says, “This is the day which the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”


Lam 3:22-23
22 It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is your faithfulness.

So our response…

Psalm 150:6 says, “Let every thing that has breath praise the LORD. Praise you the LORD.”

As we arise today, give God praise for his goodness, grace and mercy toward you and your family, because no matter what you have been through or going through…

Psalm 100:5, “For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations.”

God bless and have a great day!

Victory in your Voice!

Prov 18:20  A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled. 
Prov 18:21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. 

How many of us know that we live in tribulous times today, and life can bring you trials, tribulation, troubles and even tragedies.

But the Bible gives us encouragement and hope! Jesus said that in this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, because I have overcome the world! John 16:33

This should encourage us, because if the Lord overcame pain and death on the cross and said, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” Surely, we can overcome as well!

When we study the life of Christ, Jesus always had wise words to share, and he spoke with Kingdom authority.

For example, He spoke words that brought healing to a blind man. (Luke 18:41-42) He spoke words of comfort to a woman caught in adultery. (John 8:10-11) He told a man who was paralyzed, “Take up your bed and walk.” (Mark 2:10-11) and he spoke to the wind and the waves, saying “Peace, be still!” (Mark 4:37-39) and they were stilled!

Jesus always spoke words that were powerful and gave life to others! But he reserved his fiery words for the religious who thought they were beyond rebuke!

For example, in the book of Matthew, he told the religious leaders:

Mat 12:34  Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 
Mat 12:35  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 

Jesus knew the power of words, and we need to understand the power of words as well! He told them; How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 

Did you hear what he said in verse 34, For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 

He then tells them in Matt 12:37, “For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” 

There is something we can learn from this. Because many times we wonder why we go through, and things are the way they are.

Well, the LORD said, “What are you saying?” You see, many times, victory or defeat resides within you! Encouragement and discouragement resides within you! Success or failure resides within you!

The Bible says in Prov 18:21, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that do love it shall eat its fruit.”

Do you really understand the power of life and death through words?

Today, think about the words you are saying. In other words, what are you speaking? What are you proclaiming? What are you saying? Isn’t it amazing that one little organ, called the tongue can control the direction of our life?

The Apostle James said something so profound and wise about the tongue in the Bible.

Jas 3:6  And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. 
Jas 3:7  For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. 
Jas 3:8  But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 
Jas 3:9  With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. 
Jas 3:10  Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. 

I want to encourage you today to speak life not death, good not evil and blessing and not cursing! You see, victory is in your voice!

I want you to know that whatever you are going through, that the power of prayer, prophecy and praise can turn your situation around through faith in God’s word!

I found something very revelational many years ago while reading 2 Chron 20:1-30.

Read it, it will inspire you! It is the story of King Jehoshaphat, who was a Godly king. (For the sake of space and time, I will give you a brief synopsis!)

King Jehoshaphat heard that three great armies were coming against him. So, he feared, and proclaimed a time of prayer and fasting in Judah unto to the LORD, for everyone in the Kingdom. (2 Chron 20:3-4)

As a result of their prayer, the LORD raised up a Prophet who gave them a prophetic word to encourage them he said, “You will not need to fight in this battle, because the battle is not yours, but God’s!” (2 Chron 20:14-17)

Then, the LORD gave them a supernatural strategy! He told them to put people on the front line who had a radical praise as they went out to battle! (2 Chron 20:21)

When they done this, the LORD gave them a great victory! Listen to the scripture:

2 Chron 20:22  Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. 
2 Chron 20:23  For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another. 

So, in essence, the LORD gave them victory through their voice! There was prayer, a prophecy and praise that enabled them to get the victory! I like to call it 3P Victory, which is Prayer, Prophecy and Praise!

What is amazing that after they got the victory over the enemy, God gave them peace!

2Ch 20:27  Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, with Jehoshaphat in front of them, to go back to Jerusalem with joy, for the LORD had made them rejoice over their enemies. 
2Ch 20:28  So they came to Jerusalem, with stringed instruments and harps and trumpets, to the house of the LORD. 
2Ch 20:29  And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries when they heard that the LORD had fought against the enemies of Israel. 
2Ch 20:30  Then the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet, for his God gave him rest all around. 

The scripture says, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal or of a fleshly nature! But mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds!

2 Cor 10:3  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 
2 Cor 10:4  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 

Today, I want to encourage you that victory is in your voice! Speak life, not death, good not evil and blessing not cursing!

And watch what the LORD does in your life and in your situation! Remember 3P Victory!

What is truth?

John 18:37-38 AKJV
37 Pilate therefore said to him, Are you a king then? Jesus answered, You say that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears my voice.
38 Pilate said to him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, I find in him no fault at all.

As we remember and prepare for the feast of Passover and Resurrection Sunday on April 9th in which we celebrate the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ who was raised from the dead.

I am reminded of Jesus Christ who stood before the Roman Governor Pilate and told him, “Everyone that is of the truth hears my voice.”

Pilate heard these words and said, “What is truth?”

These are very profound words, because Jesus said everyone that is of the truth hears my voice!

The LORD could say this because he was the way, the truth and the life.

The Bible says in John 14:6 AKJV, Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.

What is truth? Truth is undeniable. Truth is rock solid. Truth can be based on facts, and facts can lead to truth. Truth is not an opinion. Truth is accuracy. Truth is authentic. Truth is not feelings. Truth is not man made. Truth is credible. Truth is not a theory. Truth can be debated, but in the end truth always prevails. Above all, the Word of God is truth!

The scripture says, John 17:17, Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth.

Today, we hear the saying, live your truth, but if your truth is faulty, or based on a lie. Then you are deceived, because the opposite of truth is lies, falsehood, deception, or bamboozlement.

Truth brings freedom. This is why the truth is often suppressed. Jesus said in John 8:32, And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

There are a lot of lies that have been told in history, but one thing is true. Jesus (Yeshua) Christ is the way, the TRUTH, and the life.

He came into this world to bring freedom to every ethnicity, culture and color, every man, woman, boy, and girl. The truth is that he died on the cross, shed his blood for our sins and redeemed us back to God.

The Apostle Paul said in 1 Tim 2:4, that the Lord desires all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Jesus said, “I came into this world to bear witness to the truth, and everyone that is of truth hears my voice.” John 18:37

After Jesus said these wise words, the Roman Governor Pilate, a man who was an unbeliever said, “I find no fault in him at all.” John 18:38

Today, I pray that everyone who hears the truth of the Gospel, and these words during this Passover/Resurrection Sunday season, will have that same response, and do this:

Rom 10:9, That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.

Trust him today! Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Yeshua Christ is Lord, and your life will never be the same. This my friend, is the truth of God’s Word!

God bless, Pastor Quinn

The Significance of Passover and Resurrection Sunday

Exo 12:12  ‘For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. 
Exo 12:13  Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. 

Col 2:16  So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, 
Col 2:17  which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ

On this Sunday we celebrate our Resurrected Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Someone may be asking, “Why do we call it Resurrection Sunday?” Well, you won’t find it in the Bible. But this is a term that the Body of Christ uses to identify the day we celebrate our Resurrected LORD who died on the cross for the sins of the world.

Someone may be asking, “What about Easter?” Well, Easter is not in the Bible either. But it is a Western pagan holiday that many have celebrated for years, not knowing the full truth! But Resurrection Sunday speaks to the day that we celebrate our RISEN LORD!

What we will find is that Passover is in the Bible! Let me share a brief history of Passover.  In the Old Testament, Exodus chapters 12 and 13, when the children of Israel were being delivered out of Egypt by Moses, the LORD gave Moses’s instructions to every family to kill a perfect tender, Lamb. They were to take the blood of that Lamb and spread it upon the doorposts of their home. This would be the protection of the LORD for every family that had the Lamb’s blood, and when the destroyer came through with judgment to kill the firstborn of every man and creature, The LORD said to the people of God, “When I see the blood I will pass by.” 

Well, many today still celebrate the Biblical Feast of Passover which is awesome, and others do not. But we must recognize in the New Testament, that Jesus Christ was that Passover Lamb whose blood was slain for the sins of the world. There are many who say we should celebrate it, and some who say we don’t have too, but I do believe we must understand and know what Passover is about. Why it was implemented, what does it mean, and what is the history behind it?

The most important thing for us to remember is, this is a time of celebration! That Jesus Christ was that precious Lamb of God who was crucified, shed his blood, died, was buried and resurrected on the third day, and took all of our sins, sickness, and disease at the cross at Calvary! And if it were not for him, there would be no Passover or Resurrection! Remember what the Apostle Paul said in Col 2:16-17.  

Col 2:16 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths,

Col 2:17  which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ. 

However, we celebrate, or whatever we call it, Resurrection Sunday, Passover Sunday, or Passover! Let us remember that it is a Holy day, and it all about Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who died and shed his blood for the sins of the world!

The Harvest is Ready Now!

A Word of Encouragement from ML Excellence devotional and books.

John 4:35 KJ2000 Say not, There are yet four months, and then comes harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

Jesus told the disciples that the harvest isn’t in months to come. It isn’t in a distance future, It is right now! People, families, communities, and cities need hope, encouragement,  salvation and good news now! 

The Gospel of the Kingdom and our Lord Jesus Christ is the solution! God has given us this ministry of reconciliation, and when we view everything through the eyes of Christ, we will see that the harvest is ready now, but it takes Kingdom minded people in Christ to fullfill the assignment.

Let’s do the work of an evangelist and spead the message and love of Christ, inviting as many people as we can to church to hear the Gospel of the Kingdom and the Resurrection power of Jesus Christ!

Especially on Sunday, April 9th, which is the time and celebration of the Biblical Passover/Resurrection Sunday and traditional Easter which is good news!

God bless, Pastor Quinn

Persistence in Prayer

Word of Encouragement to start your day! As we prepare for each day and endeavor to do a greater work in this season for the LORD, it is the power of persistent prayer and faith that enables us overcome by the blood of the Lamb!

Whatever we endeavor to do in our personal lives or church, whether it be  evangelism, outreach, giving or serving, we must cover one another through persistent prayer!

In order to accomplish this, we must PUSH… Pray until something happens… Persevere until something happens… Push until something happens!
And remember, persistence in prayer is the key to success in Jesus name!

For further study read:
Matt 26:41, Mark 11:24,  Luke 10:2, Luke 18:1, Col 1:9, 1 Thess 5 :17 and 1 Thess 5:25

God’s Word is true

Good day friends, a Word of encouragement from ML Excellence Devotional and books!

Joshua 1:13 AKJV Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, The LORD your God has given you rest, and has given you this land.

The Bible says that the promises of God are yes and amen in 2 Cor 1:20. Which means that God’s word is true and that God is not a man that he should lie according to Num 23:19. If he said it in his Word, it will surely come to pass!

In the Bible, Joshua took over for Moses, and had to be reminded that there was a promise given to the children of Israel, and it belonged to them, but they had to rest in God through faith.

Well, Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever more, and I want to remind you that God’s Word is true, and every precious promise that applies to your life belongs to you.

Today, God said, don’t fret, dont worry, and don’t fear! Rest in God and remember God said he is giving it to you, but you must believe and receive it by faith!

Whatever promise you are standing on today, just know that God’s Word is true, and it belongs to you! God bless, Pastor Quinn 😊🙏🏾

Don’t be weary!

Good day family and friends, A Word of encouragement from ML Excellence devotional and books!

Gal 6:9-10 KJ2000 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Sometimes in life we get discouraged and disappointed  while doing good!

But the Word of God encourages us not to be weary in doing good. Why? Because in due season, or the proper season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

This should encourage us because whatsoever a man sows, he shall reap, and God knows the appropriate time to release what he has predestined and purposed for our lives!

So, remember to keep sowing good seeds, deeds, and above all keep the faith! Abundant blessings will spring up in the appropriate time!

God bless, Pastor Quinn
