Remembering A General in the Lord's Church...
Bishop Joseph P. Cooper, Sr.
Welcome to TMIO Online! This page is designed in memory of a distinguished General in the Lord's Church, Bishop Joseph P. Cooper, Sr. His powerful teachings, unwavering faith, and total reliance on God's Word remains the benchmark for many throughout the earth. The effectiveness of his ministry was directly fueled by the love of God through Jesus Christ. Bishop J.P. Cooper, Sr. stood for holiness and righteousness.
For many years, he remained on the wall pleading with the body of Christ these very words, "GET IN THE MOVE; THE MOVE OF GOD! It would be during this time in history that he profoundly declared, "THE MOVE IS ON!"
He often quoted, "If I can just help somebody as I pass along this way, then my living shall not be in vain!"
Do You Have the Power?
As we seek the Lord, it is imperative that we get all He has for us; and get it right! We should have enough power to cast out devils; enough power to defend/protect our home! If you don't get it right, the enemy will attempt to come in and take over! You don't have to allow it, because you have access to the POWER OF GOD! You can have it, IF you want it!
"TIME FOR THE WALL TO COME DOWN!"
No matter the strength of the wall in your life; it's time for that wall to come down! Don't wait until the battle's over! Shout now! "The time is now, for the wall to come down!"
I'M NOT GOING TO BE THE SAME!
When the LORD comes into your life, an inward work takes place. He changes us from the inside out and we will never be the same. As we're seeking this change that only comes through Christ Jesus, we should declare with all boldness, "I'm not going to be the same! Unapologetically, "I'M NOT going to be the same!"
"WANT A LITTLE MORE JESUS!?"
How many want a little more Jesus? Why would you want to hide it? Why do you want to keep quiet about it? You should be glad to say I NEED MORE! Don't worry about what people are going to say! We should be concerned with what He's going to say! Declare it now, "JESUS, I NEED MORE OF YOU!"
IT'S GOING TO BE ALRIGHT!
In this lifetime, we all go through something. In those times of distress and uncertainty, remember; trouble don't last always! It was predestined and ordained the dawning of a new day! Hold on to these words; "IT'S GOING TO BE ALRIGHT!"
"JESUS IS THE ONE!"
Some trials will leave you feeling lonely and all by yourself. When you're in need of a friend, look no further! JESUS IS THE ONE! He will see you through!
(Quotes From Messages of the late Bishop Joseph P. Cooper, Sr.)
YOU CAN'T FOOL GOD!
Galatians 6:7-9 KJV
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
MAKE A CHOICE!
Joshua 24:15 KJV
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
The words that come from our mouth won't be enough. We must have a true desire to please God! God is not interested in shared space; He wants ALL OF YOU! We must uphold the standard of holiness, living a sanctified and consecrated life unto God!
"You can't fool around with all kinds of mess and call yourself a child of God!"
"THE INSANITY OF SIN!"
Bishop J.P. Cooper, Sr. preached a message several years ago entitled, "The Insanity of Sin!" In this message, he gave a very vivid description on the process and proof that sin will drive you crazy! What a power and timeless message that still stands true today! Romans 6:23 says, For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Thank God for Jesus! It's only because of Jesus that we are sober, seated, sane, and in our right mind!
