Deception

April 5th, 2020

The highest point of deception is when you don’t know you are deceived. This is why it is imperative that we be led by The Holy Spirit.

We have been warned!

Palm Sunday

April 5th, 2020

Isaiah wrote by The Holy Spirit in chapter 35:

​8 ​​A highway shall be there, and a road,

​​And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness.

​​The unclean shall not pass over it,

​​But it shall be for others.

​​Whoever walks the road,

​​Shall not go astray (a fool will not accidently find his way to this road, you cease to be a fool when you get on this Highway).

Once we repent and become qualified to walk on the Highway of Holiness, we should “therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance” (Matthew 3:8).  We must continue to turn away from our old ways and not “exit” the Highway and become lost.

We turn away from old ways and produce fruit for the Kingdom.  We transfer ownership to FATHER WHO is Holy and we become Holy ourselves.  We hand over our finances to HIM and HE begins to bless whatever we set our hand to on this earth.  The tithe affirms HIS ownership.

The world will try to get your attention and cause you to look away and redirect your focus to its ways causing to leave the Highway of Holiness.  Alternative paths will lead to destruction.

The entrance to the Highway of Holiness is narrow and people will not accidentally access this Highway.  Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 7:

13 “Come to God through the narrow gate, because the wide gate and broad path is the way that leads to destruction—nearly everyone chooses that crowded road! 14 The narrow gate and the difficult way leads to eternal life—so few even find it!”

If something causes you to draw away from this Highway or path, repent and return you focus toward Jesus Who leads us on this Highway of Holiness.  To reiterate, Holiness is ownership thus we are fully submitted to be led by The Holy Spirit no matter what the world says or does.

On the day we celebrate as Palm Sunday, Jesus proceeded on the “Highway of Holiness” and Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in chapter 19:

28 After saying all of this, Jesus headed straight for Jerusalem. 29 When He arrived at the stables of Annia near the Mount of Olives, He sent two of his disciples ahead, saying, 30 “When you enter the next village, you will find tethered there a donkey’s young colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it to me. 31 And if anyone stops you and asks, ‘What are you doing?’ just tell them this: ‘It is needed for the Lord of All.’”

32 The two who were sent entered the village and found the colt exactly like Jesus had said. 33 While they were untying the colt, the owners approached them and asked, “What are you doing?”

34 The disciples replied, “We need this donkey for the Lord of All.”

35–36 They brought the colt to Jesus. Then they placed their prayer shawls on its back, and Jesus rode it as he descended the Mount of Olives toward Jerusalem. As He rode along, people spontaneously threw their prayer shawls on the path in front of Him like a carpet.

FATHER’S ownership of the colt superseded that of the man in the village and there was no debate or argument concerning ownership.  This Highway had prayer as its foundation with people being led to lay down their prayer shawls on the path.  Additionally, this path led Jesus to the crucifixion and represents us leading a crucified life as well.  Today commemorates  us putting “self” to death and acknowledging FATHER’S full and complete ownership.

And the people shouted over and over, “Highest praises to GOD for the One who comes as King in the name of the LORD! Heaven’s peace and glory from the highest realm now comes to us!”

Thank You

April 4th, 2020

Thank you for your tithes and joyful offerings supporting Servias Ministries.  My wife and I deem it an honor and privilege to tithe into Servias ourselves.  We fully comprehend the importance to help impoverished children which is where most if not all of the money we receive is distributed.  Our overhead is low and we pay no salaries because FATHER provides our needs through other means.

Jesus expressed His priority for the poor in the story of the rich young ruler.  In Matthew chapter 19, Jesus spoke:

21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in Heaven; and come, follow Me.”

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

The young man failed to understand that giving his past wealth was an investment in his future wealth which would be much more precious and abundant.

Earlier in Matthew 19, Jesus corrected the disciples concerning children:

13 Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” 15 And He laid His hands on them and departed from there.

Our assistance directed to impoverished children is a high priority as it is with Our Heavenly Father WHO directed HIS Son to speak concerning the poor and children in the above passages.

Embrace Holy Fire

April 3rd, 2020

In Hebrews chapter 11, it is written by The Holy Spirit:

5 By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased GOD. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please HIM, for he who comes to GOD must believe that He is, and that HE is a rewarder of those who diligently seek HIM.

Every morning I diligently seek FATHER and desire to find out what is on HIS Mind.  As I pray in The Holy Spirit, HE often provides me with people to lift up in prayer.  My desire is to be fully pleasing to HIM in every aspect of my life as I walk out each day.  I want my heart to be 100% pure and this can only be accomplished by Holy fire.

Our destiny is on the other side of the Holy fire.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1 Thessalonians chapter 5:

19 Never restrain or put out the fire of the Holy Spirit. 20 And don’t be one who scorns prophecies, 21 but be faithful to examine them by putting them to the test, and afterward hold tightly to what has proven to be right.

When we have a pure heart, we are able to discern prophecies through examination.  There are many false prophets who would redirect our focus away from the Holy fire to various and sundry events around the world.  Many of the sheep go astray because they are unable to properly examine the prophecies and put them to test.  It’s one thing to speak forth an opinion, everybody has one, but it is another thing to claim your opinion is a prophecy from the Throne Room.

Paul also wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Timothy chapter 1:

6 I’m writing to encourage you to fan into a flame and rekindle the fire of the spiritual gift GOD imparted to you when I laid my hands upon you. 7 For GOD will never give you the spirit of fear, but the Holy Spirit who gives you mighty power, Love, and self-control.

The current pandemic promotes fear among the population and the media promotes fear in order to gain viewers and advertising revenue.  Fear and greed go hand in hand.  When we fan the flame and rekindle the Holy fire of The Holy Spirit, we walk above fear and control “self“.  This results in us walking in Agape Love and power.  We then promote peace and certainty to those around us.

In Hebrews chapter 12, it is written by The Holy Spirit:

29 For our GOD is a Holy, devouring fire!

You and I need to run to the Holy fire, not away from it.  I want all the dross to be burned out and removed from me, not my will but HIS.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 12:

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of GOD, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, Holy, acceptable to GOD, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of GOD.

It is not unreasonable to sacrifice ourselves to the Holy, devouring fire.  Only by doing this can we truly know the perfect will of FATHER.  Men have tried to accomplish this by exhaustive study but without the Holy fire.  They have fallen short even though they have convinced many otherwise.  When we are purified by the Holy fire, we are able to “prove” what is the Absolute Truth versus man’s limited view of what they think is Truth even though they may overwhelm us with “facts” which are subject to change.

As Paul stated, “For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified”.  I am not interested in man’s opinions but only FATHER’S absolute Truth to guide me each and every day. 

The Return

April 2nd, 2020

As FATHER has spoken to me a multitude of times, “Now is the time!”

This is an opportunity to be in unity with fellow believers.

Intimacy

April 2nd, 2020

Do I have the intimate relationship with FATHER I fully desire? 

Do I want to be known as a minister of the Gospel (what I do) or as a Son of GOD (Who I am)?  As for me, fully walking in an intimate relationship as a Son is my focus.  Without HIM, I am nothing.  The ministry is a result of who I am thus the ministry will be empowered by My Heavenly Father and HE will guide me in all areas.

We have the power and authority to follow Jesus and become imitators of Him.  There is a difference in knowing the Scriptures in this area and walking in the revelation of being an imitator of Christ.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 12:

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

The above directive requires commitment on our part.  Commitment is what is left after the emotion of the moment has passed.  People will start the year committed to lose weight but their commitment often wanes after a short time and nothing has changed.

How committed are you to daily presenting yourself to FATHER?  I do not look at it as a duty or obligation but instead it is an honor and privilege to do so.  I know that if I have become a fully mature Son, the ministry and results will follow.  In the past, most have not considered an intimate relationship and have moved directly to ministering in whatever capacity of their anointing.  Solomon did not ask for riches but instead asked for Wisdom.  Wealth came as a byproduct of walking in Wisdom from Above.

The adversary wants to distract us from this Truth.  Without the proper foundation of intimacy with FATHER, any ministry we walk in will have a shaky foundation.  A wrong foundation results in wrong results.

In Galatians chapter 2, Paul also wrote by The Holy Spirit:

20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

The two principles expressed here are: die to self and live by faith.  Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 9:

23 Jesus said to all of his followers, “If you truly desire to be my disciple, you must disown your life completely, embrace my ‘cross’ as your own, and surrender to my ways. 24 For if you choose self-sacrifice, giving up your lives for my glory, you will embark on a discovery of more and more of true life. But if you choose to keep your lives for yourselves, you will lose what you try to keep. 25 Even if you gained all the wealth and power of this world, everything it could offer you, yet lost your soul in the process, what good is that? 26 So why then are you ashamed of being my disciple? Are you ashamed of the revelation-truth I give to you?

“I, the Son of Man, will one day return in my radiant brightness, with the Holy angels and in the splendor and majesty of my Father, and I will be ashamed of all who are ashamed of me. 27 But I promise you this: there are some of you standing here right now who will not die until you have witnessed the presence and the power of God’s Kingdom realm.”

There is not one thing more important at this hour than pressing in to that level of intimacy with FATHER, Lord Jesus, and The Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit will lead us into the Holy of Holies where Agape Love prevails in all areas of our life.  What better foundation can we have than that of the Presence of FATHER!

Imitate Him

April 1st, 2020

In order for you and I to have a supernatural ministry toward others, we must have a supernatural and intimate relationship with THE FATHER, Son, and Holy Spirit as a foundation.  We must have an intimacy beyond what has been preached in the past.  Many had the anointing but without the foundation of intimacy and they ultimately “crashed and burned”.  In Matthew chapter 7, Jesus spoke:

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!

Someone who is intimate with Christ will not practice lawlessness.  In Acts chapter 1, Jesus had spent forty days preparing the disciples to have a relationship with The Holy Spirit.  He spoke:

8  “But you shall receive power when (after) the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

The Beloved Disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in John chapter 1:

12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become Sons of GOD, to those who believe in HIS Name

We must understand our sonship through Jesus Christ.  This is our state of who we are versus what we do.  We are to be imitators of GOD as Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 5:

1   Be imitators of God in everything you do, for then you will represent your Father as his beloved sons and daughters.

Our intimate relationship with FATHER will result in empowerment to properly represent HIM to the world.  Signs and wonders shall follow us as we minister in this fallen world.

Jesus responded to the devil and He spoke in Matthew chapter 4:

4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”

When we “imitate” Christ, we want to fully and complete walk according to every Word that proceeds from FATHER, without exception.  If we couldn’t do that, Jesus would not have expressed it when He responded to the devil.  We have the sufficiency in Christ to walk as He walked or else we would not be able to do greater works.  In Matthew chapter 28, Jesus spoke:

18 Then Jesus came close to them and said, “All the authority of the universe has been given to me. 19 Now go in my authority and make disciples (mathēteuō) of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 20 And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.”

The word “mathēteuō” means to become a student and walk with the teacher resulting in you thinking like the teacher, talking like the teacher, and acting like the teacher.  Only those with an intimate relationship will walk in this fruitful walk.  You and I have been Divinely appointed to walk in this manner.  This is what it means to be under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians chapter 11:

1 Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.

The Lordship of Jesus Christ must be at the forefront of our daily lives.  If we think like Jesus, talk like Jesus, and act like Jesus, we will have a relationship with FATHER like Jesus resulting in a ministry like Jesus.

Finally, as Hebrews chapter 12 states:

1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

From beginning to end, let us imitate Jesus Christ in every aspect of our being.

We Are The Temple

March 31st, 2020

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 6:

11 O Corinthians! We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open. 12 You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections. 13 Now in return for the same (I speak as to children), you also be open.

14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:​

​​“I will dwell in them

​​And walk among them.

​​I will be their God,

​​And they shall be My people.”​

17 Therefore​

​​“Come out from among them

​​And be separate, says the Lord.

​​Do not touch what is unclean,

​​And I will receive you.”

18 ​​“I will be a Father to you,

​​And you shall be My sons and daughters,

​​Says the LORD Almighty.”

The adversary wants to keep you and I controlled by our mind and/or our body.  If he can accomplish this, we will be unable to walk in the power and authority given to us by Our Lord Jesus Christ.

What are the results if the adversary is successful?  Fear, uncertainty, and doubt.  This brings on anxiety of helplessness which in turns promotes deeper fear until you cannot function in a productive fashion.  You seek out entertainment as a form of escape from the perception of reality projected in your mind and body.  Your body responds by a lowered immune system and you become susceptible to sickness and disease.

When we constantly renew our minds with the Absolute Truth of FATHER’S Word, we reverse what the adversary done in our lives.  The battle is in our minds and our bodies respond accordingly.  We must not allow the “talking heads” on TV to convince us that we need to fear what is going on around us.  They promote doubt resulting in uncertainty about the future.  Are they able to see your future or does FATHER already know your future that HE wrote in your book in Heaven?  Out of Agape Love, HE gives you the choice of which path to take.

I have experienced near death five times in my life yet here I am.  Each time FATHER delivered me without man’s assistance so no one can take credit for my deliverance from death.  Am I special?  No more than you!  We all have a Divine plan written about us and we are meant to fulfill that plan but we must not allow the adversary and his minions to divert us from our Divine destiny.

Our minds want to cling to relationships developed in the past but we must not allow our emotions to dictate who we fellowship with if they are full of unbelief.  It took Moses forty years of separation in the wilderness to get “Egypt” out of him in order to prepare him to deliver the children of Israel.  With the Blood of Jesus Christ, we do not need such a lengthy wilderness adventure. 

There is power in The Blood and we need to honor and reverence The Blood.  We are meant to walk and be Holy so that we can reside in the “Holy of Holies”.  This will allow us to approach FATHER and walk on the fiery sapphire stone as we approach HIS Glory.  The adversary was removed from Heaven and wants us to be disqualified as he is.  Do not let the noise of the world thwart your ascension into the Heavenly realm.

Intimacy

March 29th, 2020

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians 1:

17  I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know HIM through your deepening intimacy with HIM.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Peter 3:

18  But continue to grow and increase in God’s grace and intimacy with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May He receive all the glory both now and until the day eternity begins. Amen!

It is written by The Holy Spirit in 1st John 2:

5   But the Love of GOD will be perfected within the one who obeys God’s Word. We can be sure that we’ve truly come to live in intimacy with GOD

The Beloved Disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in The Revelation of Jesus Christ, chapter 2:

7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

29 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

Chapter 3:

6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says

When we pursue Agape Love, our intimacy with FATHER, Our Lord Jesus, and The Holy Spirit grows to the point where we have no problem in hearing what the Spirit is saying.  What could be more important right now?

Hindrances

March 28th, 2020

Spiritual warfare occurs when GOD’S Word in your life is being challenged by the adversary.  The adversary’s intention is to discredit you.  If you can’t dispute Truth then you go after the witness and discredit his or her character. 

The adversary wants to discourage you and me from fully walking as Sons and Daughters.  He will steal, kill, and destroy those who allow themselves to be manipulated into believing his lies.  GOD’S Word activates.

Angels are activated because they hearken unto the Voice of THE LORD as it is written in Psalm 103:

20  Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of HIS Word.

This is why we must speak forth The Word in faith and expect the angels to be dispatched.  They do what they hear if it lines up with The Word.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 10:

4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ

When your perception is wrong, you will be hindered from being healed.  Jesus was hindered when He went to His hometown of Nazareth.  It is recorded by The Holy Spirit in Matthew chapter 13:

53 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. 54 When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?” 57 So they were offended at Him.

But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” 58 Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

The people of Nazareth could not get past their own experience of seeing Jesus prior to the activation of His calling.  They were living in the past and could not embrace the reality of the present.  They saw the carpenter’s son and not the Son of Man.  Revelation is meant to shift us out of the past and embrace the Truth.  Satan attempts to deceive us by promoting those strongholds in our minds that oppose The Word.  The argument “I am not worthy” is frequently used but FATHER has blotted out our past when we repent.  We must accept that Truth and move on.

As it is written through Paul by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 5:

17 Now, if anyone is enfolded into Christ, he has become an entirely new creation. All that is related to the old order has vanished. Behold, everything is fresh and new. 18 And God has made all things new, and reconciled us to HIMSELF, and given us the ministry of reconciling others to God. 19 In other words, it was through the Anointed One that God was shepherding the world, not even keeping records of their transgressions, and he has entrusted to us the ministry of opening the door of reconciliation to God

The adversary wants us to remain separated and in division with others.  He knows that if we become unified with Christ and each other, then the Kingdom on earth has arrived.  This is why the revelation of Agape Love is so critical in this hour.  Don’t let hindrances derail your pursuit to full maturity.
