About JOE RUSSELL



Psalm 96.1

Born in the south Florida and grew up listening to all kinds of music and was hooked on the music sounds of rock and roll and wanted to become a singer.  Started young as a member of a youth group  in Miami.  They would go to talent shows and compete but be allowed to see big name artist perform before leaving for the night, being chaperoned by adults.  It only fueled his fire and from there he became a nightclub performer/recording artist, in various cities and clubs, until he changed his life and lifestyle, and started serving the Yahshua.  He’s been writing and singing gospel since 1996 and is still cranking them out for the joy it brings him to spread Yahweh's message of love and forgiveness

GospelEngine Artist Spotlight - January 2017 - Traces Gospel Choir

Blog List Image


About Traces Gospel choir



Traces Gospel Choir, so named because the members can “trace” their roots to so many different backgrounds (African, European, Scandinavian, American, Indonesian, Sami and more), started in 2006 with 10 members, and has now grown to a 18 member woman’s choir. After a year practicing and recruiting members, Traces began performing in public, and people began to recognize the warm and slightly rough “American” sound the choir had in contrast to many other gospel choirs in Norway

Traces Gospel Choir has collaborated with a wide range of artists, including Magnolia Jazz Band, Karpe Diem, Trine Rein, Ost & Kjex, Rune Andersen, Espen Beranek Holm, Otto Graf, Odd Børetzen and Wenche Myhre. The choir has appeared on television and radio, including God Morgen Norge, NRK TV-aksjon 2010, and 21 August 2011 at the Memorial Ceremony in Oslo with Karpe Diem on the song "Tusen Tegninger". In November 2011, Traces finished its fifth season performing at the "Gospel Brunch" at Rica Victoria Hotel in Oslo, together with their regular band Einstein.

                                                             Focus on Jesus

                       by Richard Cox, Author of I, We, Us: A Journey of Personal Growth and Development

 

“Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection] … (Hebrews 12:2) AMP

 

We are living in a time where there are so many daily distractions that get in our way.  Our lives are filled with balancing our time between work, school, kids, church, rehearsals, etc.  All of us have experienced life events that have caused us to somehow lose our focus for one reason or another. It’s sometime hard to concentrate with our minds and lives on Jesus.   Our minds sometimes drift about our past involvements and memories of our past that can be strong distractions, especially in times of stress.  The key to bringing balance and order to our Christian lives is by focusing on Jesus.  This is accomplished by constantly seeking Jesus by being obedient to His Word, seeking Him with family matters, job situations, church situations, etc. 

 

So many times, we have a tendency to focus on the wrong things and choices we have made in life.  We are more inclined to focus on our experience, on ourselves or on others instead of Jesus.  I encourage you today to focus on Jesus --- Christ living in you. In Galatians 2:20(KJV) it says I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”  By taking the time to examine Jesus through pray and His Word you will find that it is profitable and fulfilling for your life. Focus on “Him in you,” not your natural self and experience a life changing moment.

 

We are not only to see Jesus but beyond that, we are to perceive His significance and His spiritual meaning.  You will find in Hebrews 2:9 (KJV) where it says, “but we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”  In Biblical times the people were urged to make a habit of looking away from everything and focus exclusively on Jesus. It was not considered a Christian option but a way of life.  We ought to be living our lives spotlighting Jesus as the focal point in our hearts.  We need to be reminded to make a habit of focusing on Jesus. Our lives should be so Christ-centered that others in our homes, communities, jobs and churches should see the light of Christ shining in you.   

 

If we could only learn to focus on Jesus and let him work out the solution in our problems.  One of the hardest parts of life is keeping our focus on Jesus.  Sometimes some of us get this feeling that Jesus is too busy to solve our problem.  We do understand that Jesus is the ultimate multi-tasker He can control the universe, run the complex ecology of Earth and still be intimately involved in the lives of billions of saints.  There is no limit to God’s power. 

 

Here are some ways to maintain your focus in Jesus:

  1. Focus on His Promises to Us. We remember the promises He made to us. If God spoke a promise, He will fulfill it.  Isaiah 55:11(KJV) says, “so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”  It would be completely contrary to God’s character to go back on anything He’s ever said.  He never changes, so His Word is as reliable today as it was over 2,000 years.  
  2. Focus on your Faith. We believe that Jesus already has the situation under control.  Sometimes we might not like the solution.  That’s when we must reply on our faith in God comes in.  It’s not enough just to believe that Jesus can handle the problem.  We also have to believe that He always does what’s best for us.  Jesus knows and controls the future. He arranges everything to work into his plan for our lives.  In Romans 8:28 (KJV) it says “and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
  3. Focus on your worship. When you really focus of Jesus, what happens is a change occurs in both the focus on your life and your worship. Your focused life can build a stronger relationship between you and the Lord.  God will reveal Himself in a greater dimension to you because of your faithfulness to seek Him and His will. God has also created us to be worshippers, and worshippers worship His Majesty.  In John 4:24 (NIV) it says, “God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."  God inhabitants your praise for worshipping Him for just who He is.    

 

 

     If you place your focus on Jesus as a lifestyle it boils down to recognizing who you are “in Him.” Then you will find out how you can focus on the correct view of yourself with Jesus living inside of you. Knowing this, you can then step into every situation of life as in Ephesians 6:10,11 (NIV) where it says, “Finally,  be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the full armor of God that you may be able to stand against the devil’s schemes.” If you make it your life’s priority to focus on Jesus, one victory will lead to another, your faith in Him will grow and your walk with God will never be the same.

Make this a Christmas of Giving


By admin, 2016-12-01

                                              Make this a Christmas of Giving

                     by Richard Cox,  Author of I, We, Us: A Journey of Personal Growth and Development

 

“Do not forget or neglect to do kindness and good, to be generous and distribute and contribute to the needy [of the church as embodiment and proof of fellowship], for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”  Hebrews 13:16(AMP)

 

     Christmas is a time when we celebrate the wonderful birth of Jesus Christ the Messiah.  God gave us His best gift, Jesus who was born to redeem us from our sins.  In John 3:16(AMP), it says “for God greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.”  In honor of God’s gift to the world, it’s only fitting that we as Christians make giving a focus as our gift back to God.  Our Christmas gifts of giving should be about giving more love, more joy, and more happiness in the lives of others in our homes and communities.  It is a way to imitate Jesus generosity to the world.

 

     When most of us think about Christmas we automatically associate a time of giving.  Our giving shows our generosity to our family, friends and community. It’s a means that we use to nourish our love in our personal and professional relationships in life.  Christmas is not about just giving material gifts only but reaching out to the needy during Christmas.  There are many homeless shelters, women shelters, and many more outreach organizations that need our help and contributions during this season of giving.  You can volunteer hours, and donate useful goods to worthy causes in your local areas.  Reach out this Christmas and give your love, time and money to help a needy family or a lonely senior citizen in your neighborhood and community.    You can also give supportive words of encouragement, and be a good listener to someone who’s feeling hurt and sad during this holiday season.  You’ll experience and witness fulfillment in your soul in the process of giving to others.

 

Reflect on some of these Biblical principles about giving:

 

1.  Give Yourself.  God wants us, not our money.  When we have surrendered ourselves to the lord, our giving with fall in line. In the Bible, 2 Corinthian 8:5 (AMP) says, “nor [was this gift of their merely the contribution] that we expected, but first they gave themselves to the Lord and to us [as His agents] by the will of God [entirely disregarding their personal interests, they gave as much as they possibly could, having put themselves at our disposal to be directed by the will of God].”   In giving we follow Jesus, who gave everything for us. So it is appropriate to give what we can.

 

2.  Remember Christ example.  He gave everything to enrich our lives.  The riches we have in Him are the true riches, not material wealth.  2 Corinthian 8:9 (NIV) states,  “for you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.”  We find that giving is sharing.   It is meeting desperate needs so our brothers and sisters can live a more enriching life.

  

3.  Giving is like sowing.  Giving is an investment in our eternal future.  2 Corinthians 9:6 (NIV) it says, “remember this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.”  The bigger the investment the greater the return.

 

     Remember to keep the right attitude as you give this Christmas.  You should not give for the wrong reasons to impress others or get notoriety for yourself.   By giving you’ll activate and release many forms of God’s blessing in your life to give even more in the future.

 

Here are some benefits you can receive from your giving:

*   Gain a deeper understanding of God’s grace and nature - In Ephesians 2:8 (AMP) it says, “for it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith.  And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is a gift of God.”   Grace is that unique gift given by God to man. It cannot be earned by anything a person might do.

 

*    Experience joy and purpose -  You’ll find in 2 Corinthians 9:11(AMP) where it says “thus you will be enriched in all things and in every way, as that you can be generous, and [your generosity as it is] administered by us will bring forth thanksgiving to God.” God is able to meet our needs and to provide much more, so we can give joyfully and without fear to bless others.

 

*    Reap eternal rewards -  Matthew 6:19-21(NIV) states, “do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”  By having a personal relationship with God it will free you to value heavenly rather than earthly treasures, that really can transforms our values.

      As you give this Christmas season do it in love.  God gave us His best gift, Jesus Christ because He cared about redeeming mankind, He loved us and He still cares for us.   We cannot out give God.  We need not hold back but we can give generously. Since all we have is from God, He deserves our best. Christmas is really about giving from your heart with a personal touch to make a different in someone’s life. Your gift of giving could be that unexpected miracle someone has been waiting for this year.

Power of Gospel Songs

Power Of Gospel Songs


Emily McKendry

By EMILY MCKENDRY, Bible Instructor, Manitoba-Saskatchewan Conference

So closely associated with the work of creation and redemption is the melody of music, that we can hardly think of the one to the exclusion of the other. (See Job 38:4, 7; Rev. 15:3.) True gos­pel singing is preaching in a musical setting. It is a powerful instrument used by God in regener­ating human hearts. In evangelistic work gospel songs cannot be treated as of little consequence. Speaking of the wonderful power of song, Mrs. White says:

"It has power to subdue rude and uncultivated na­tures; power to quicken thought and to awaken sympa­thy, to promote harmony of action, and to banish the gloom and foreboding that destroy courage and weaken effort. It is one of the most effective means of impres: sing the heart with spiritual truth. . . . As a part of religious service, singing is as much an act of worship as isprayer."--Education, pp. 167, 168.

At the opening of the song service the song leader stands before men and women from all walks of life. They have come with diversified thoughts, and many with distracted minds. The leader with a happy countenance, a cheery word, and a song of hope and courage can usually get the attention of the people as a whole. He seeks to prepare the minds for the sermon that follows.

Familiar and simple gospel songs are enjoyed by the average person. Great truths are usually simply stated. They are so worded that anyone with average intelligence can understand them. A great blessing is received through the direct power of simple gospel songs.

Claudia Muzia once walked along a country road in the South and listened to two colored chil­dren sing "Count Your Blessings." She had sung before thousands and heard the world artists sing, but she had never been so impressed by any song as she was by this simple gospel song. She said, "I have been counting my blessings ever since." And so the song leader by the use of simple and familiar songs can create a worshipful atmosphere that will prepare hearts for the sermon.

Short chorus songs—just a few words with an easy time—are very effectual in public efforts. These little songs you will find buried away in the heart long after the evangelist has left his field. The gospel soloist who renders her songs through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit with a desire to win souls, will obtain fruitful results.

An evangelist can preach until he is hoarse, he can plead until he is weary, but his voice often falls on unresponsive ears. Then through the veil of sin which has enshrouded hearers filters a note of song. Like a wedge it opens heart doors and makes room for the gospel message. An appro­priate closing song will seal the message in the hearts of the people as nothing else can. The gospel song has the power to unlock hearts' doors to the Holy Spirit. It will help a man or woman when speech seems insufficient. Gospel songs may be made a medium of great blessing. They can supply something in the public worship of God that is otherwise lacking; for through them, praise and adoration may rise to the throne on high as a sweet-smelling incense.

SYNDICATED HIP-HOP RADIO PERSONALITY CORY “COCO BROTHER” CONDREY SET TO RELEASE #AMERICA ALBUM ON 9/9

SYNDICATED HIP-HOP RADIO PERSONALITY
CORY “COCO BROTHER” CONDREY
SET TO RELEASE #AMERICA ALBUM ON 9/9
The Project Serves As Soundtrack To #TheStandCampaign                
Urging Christians To Take A Stand For America
STAND Rally Scheduled for 9/11 @2:30 PM in New York’s Herald Square Plaza

America is at a spiritual and social crossroads as racism, police brutality and the
unsettling political climate now dominate the evening news. However, syndicated
radio personality Cory “Coco Brother” Condrey believes Jesus Christ is the answer to
America’s various challenges. Performing under the banner of The Stand Campaign,
Condrey has assembled a team of gifted artists to create the #America (Tyscot
Records, LLC) album that serves as the musical soundtrack to Condrey’s STAND
movement that urges Christians to radically stand against racism, police brutality
and the revenge killing of law enforcement officials, with a message of love and
hope. The album hits brick-and-mortar retailers and digital music platforms
everywhere on September 9th.

“This isn’t the America your parents grew up in,” Condrey says on the opening track.
“America’s not what it used to be and we can’t argue about is it greater or is it
not but America will be what we make it.” He cites the social stands that Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. and Rev. Billy Graham took for racial equality back in the sixties
and asks the question, “what are we going to do today in America?”

The songs graphically lay out the issues of today’s world on #America and then the
hard-hitting declaration “We Declare War,” featuring Joann Rosario-Condrey and Da’
T.R.U.T.H., incites  “the real Christians” to stand up and address the issues of the
day. After the battle’s been fought, there’s a sincere belief that Christians can
“Change The World” on the danceable track of the same name and “shine a light in the
darkness. We will overcome. We will be the ones to change the world.”

The Stand Campaign is headed to New York City with new, lit music to bring hope and
to inspire Americans to stand for America. The event will take place on Sunday,
September 11 @2:30 PM in Herald Square Plaza in front of Macy’s at the intersection
of Broadway, Sixth Avenue and 34th Street. Condrey has hosted STAND rallies –
drawing thousands of participants of all ethnic and age groups – around the country
for the last seven years. The 9/11 NYC rally will kick-off a national campaign that
will carry the STAND Movement into key U.S. cities into 2017.

Condrey says that the core message of #TheStandCampaign is Love, Unity & Hope. He
encourages likeminded people to start a #StandCampaign in their city by signing up
and logging onto www.thestandcampaign.com

Cory Condrey is a veteran radio personality who has worked for a number of
mainstream and inspirational radio stations. In 2014, Condrey created Radio Condrey,
a radio network that syndicates his weekend program “The Weekend” that has 25+
affiliates in the USA and Canada. He also presides over the Condrey Evangelistic
Association in Atlanta, GA.
