James Chapter 1:26-27

26 If any man among you seem to be

religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.

27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. 

Brothers, we are taught in this the first chapter of the book of James. That pure religion and undefiled before God the Father is to visit the fatherless and the widows. 

We are also told to keep ourselves unspotted from the world.


He goes on to tell us that we are to bridle our tongues. He says that if any man, seem to be religious, and does not bridle his own tongue then this man's religion is vain.

In other word’s he is walking through this life saying whatever he pleases without regard to God's Holy Word. 

When you read this 1st chapter of James you see that he is teaching us to walk with God. If we do not take charge of our tongues then we are walking as the world walks, and even following after the world’s ways, and not Gods ways. 

Verse 19 says;

19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

Brothers, we as children of God are to be swift to hear, but slow to speak, and slow to wrath. 

We are not to speak as the world speaks in wrath and anger at the things that someone might do to us or say about us. 

We are God's children not the world’s children. For we have been bought with a price. Jesus has grafted us into the vine of holiness.

20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.


Brothers we are not to hear the words of God only, but rather are to both hear, and do his word.

 He says in verse 22 above that we are not to be hearers only. That if we only hear his word and do not do his word then we are deceiving our own selves. Indeed, our religion is in vain.


23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.


25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.


Brothers we are to do His work here on this earth. If we both hear, and do his work, then are we being made perfect in Jesus' image. This is what God expects from those of us who have believed his word. 

We are indeed to hear and do his word. We are no longer to walk through this life in the flesh as the lost world walks in the flesh. No brothers, we are to both hear God's word, and are to do His word. As we walk in spirit not flesh.

God bless you my brothers;

Brothers you and I are to soar as the Eagle!


My brothers in Christ Jesus Passover ended on April 16, 2020. The bible tells us that we are to pray daily for the next 40 days. We should be spending as ​much time as is possible up to May 25th.

Pray for this world to overcome this so-called pandemic. Also for the United States of America to come into the greatest revival that this nation has ever seen and that the fire of God's glory will be spread to every nation on earth and that God will receive more born again believers in Christ Jesus than ever before in the history of this world.

Brothers we are going to come out of this 40-day time period stepping into a NEW ERA. One which I believe will be unlike no other time in history.

Please prepare yourself and your family to come into serving God as he intended for you to do. He gave you an assignment to do before you were born and whatever your assignment is know now that you are the only one who can complete this assignment that God has given you.

Brothers step out into this new era serving God like never before. We should bring billions more souls into the Kingdom of God in the time that we now see coming.

God bless each of my brothers and soon to be brothers!

James Chapter 2:26

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Brothers reread the above verse again. This is a very powerful statement by James the earthly half-brother of Jesus.

If our spirit leaves our bodies and we do not know Jesus, then we have died. If we know Jesus as Lord then our spirit will live forever and never die.

Think about this statement, and you will agree with James that there can be no life if our spirit leaves us when we are lost.

The second part of this statement should ring just as true to us. James was making and analogy here. He says that our faith is dead without our works.

Brothers, he is saying that if our spirit leaves our body then we are dead, and if we have no works for God then our faith is as dead as our body is without our spirit.

Reread this verse again and again until you understand this truth. God expects our works to be the evidence of our faith. We must go about working for our heavenly Father. Our works will be seen as evidence of our faith.

He says ‘FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD.’ Brothers, please show your faith by your works. We will be held to this standard by our Lord Jesus.

If ye full fill the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:

But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.

What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

Faith alone will not save us brothers.

If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

Brothers, please see here that if we do not offer food and clothing to this poor sister or brother then we are without works, and any faith that we have is dead.

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

God knew that Abraham was a man of faith, but until he was willing to show his faith by his works, by this work was his faith shown not only to God, but also to all who saw his faith. Even in this day some two thousand years later do we see Abraham’s great faith. We are told that Abraham believed God. We also must believe God just as Abraham did in his day.

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

God bless you my brothers.

 John Hipp

Brothers we are in the last days of the end times.

Go about completing your assignment that God has given you.

By God's Grace 

Through Our Faith

Our Soul Is Secure In Jesus


For His Soon Appearing

Brothers we are the Church the body of Christ. Jesus is the head of the body and all of our brothers in Christ are to love one another. We are to be one as Jesus and the Father are one.

Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Mark 3:26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

Mark 3:27 No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

That kingdom nor that house can stand against division. Satan knows a house divided against itself will fall.

1Corinthians 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

Mark 4:23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

Mark 4:24 And he said unto them, take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.

Mark 4:25 For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.

Satan cannot enter our house and spoil our goods except he first bind us. Then he will spoil our goods. Our faith. Our love.

The spirit of division brings men that are strong in the Lord back to the same helpless place they were, before they were saved.

1Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.1Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

1Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

1Corinthians 2:3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

1Corinthians 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

1Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

1Corinthians 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.

1Corinthians 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

1Corinthians 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

The work of the spirit of division is: 

1. To divide and cause to fall by magnifying a difference with the influence to hate.

2. It claims to be the spirit of non-compromise.

Satan is out to stop God’s increase in our lives. Read the two verses of

1Coringhians 3:6-7 below.

1Corinthians 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

1Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

The spirit of reconciliation, brings unity. Man to God. Husband to wife. Management to labor. Were ever there is a difference. The spirit of reconciliation never compromises the laws of love and faith. It ministers to others, while esteeming others above itself.

Love and unselfishness stills the fight that the spirit of division brings against you and your brothers in Christ Jesus. 

Division is defeated by love and unselfishness, in the spirit of reconciliation.

2Corinthians 9:10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)

Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Romans 1:2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

2Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

Galatians 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

Ephesians 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Ephesians 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Ephesians 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

Ephesians 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

Ephesians 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

Hebrews 3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

Hebrews 3:2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.

Hebrews 3:3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.

Hebrews 3:4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

Hebrews 3:5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

Hebrews 3:6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Luke 17:5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

Mark 4:26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;

Mark 4:27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.

Mark 4:28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.

Mark 4:29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.

Mark 4:30 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?

Mark 4:31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:

Mark 4:32 But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.

Brothers, faith is our house in which we are to dwell, and it is our servant here on this earth. It defeats Satan on every turn, it is uncompromising, in love and unselfishness, it drives our reconciliation to our brothers.

Walk in this truth, and when you come up against the spirit of division of the saints of God. Stop, put on the whole armor of God, and take authority over any and all who would bring division to you and your brother.

Division of us who are saved by the blood of Jesus is not of God. 

Division of us the church comes from the devil always, and without exception.

Brothers, do not be divided in this day in which we now live.

God Bless you my brothers,

John Hipp

My brothers please discern the time in which we now live. We as a civilization have been in the end times since May 1948 when Israel became a nation. God's Holy Word tells us plainly that those of us who saw Israel become a nation once again would be the generation that would see Christ Jesus return for his Church. There were many end time prophesy's which had to be fulfilled before Jesus would return for His Church. We are nearing the finish line my brothers for the Holy Word of God is almost fulfilled so it is very important that we go about completing our assignment that God has given us to do.

That is right God gave you an assignment before you were born and only you can do what he has ordained you to do. Please go about doing the work that you are to do.

I myself was born in 1949. I will soon be 71 years of age. How much longer before my generation will come to an end? Think about that question brothers.

Please check back often for new messages that the Holy Spirit gives me for you, and also for the beautiful photographs of God's creations. He never stops creating brothers.

 Also you will find praise and worship music in the coming posts.

God bless you my brothers in Christ Jesus
