THA MESSENGER immediately brings to mind one that has been purposely chosen, one that is well capable of delivery, one that has a message of importance, and one that demands immediate attention, one that is mentally prepared to face and overcome adverse challenges during the course of delivery. I have been chosen as one of God's Messengers (Jeremiah 1:15, John 15:16, Romans 8:29, 30), regardless of the challenges that I face, Romans 8:31 tells me I can't be defeated with my faith in God. The messages that God has given me I must deliver, to reach those that are lost in this maze we call life. I believe what the word of God says, and that is we have not been given the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind, that only God can give.
I am, on a mission, and that is to evangelize the world around me, to make a difference in the lives of the people that I come in contact with, by allowing Christ to radiate through my life. I've been commissioned to minister to the body of Christ and sinners. Foremost, God has commissioned me to live a Holy life in the midst of this chaotic world, that he may receive the glory. A Holy life can only be lived out, when you commit to doing the will of God for your life. My ultimate mission is to win souls as the Holy Spirit leads me, and to bring the creation back to the creator. Matthew 4:19, Jesus says, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men", this is only done by the preaching of the Gospel, doing the will of the father, says Tha Messenger. Hebrews 4:12 is the foundation to all of the messages that are delivered by THA MESSENGER.
