A Willing Receiver

January 23rd, 2020

I have no Plan B.  Being led by THE SPIRIT is my only plan.  Jesus came to show us what our relationship with Our Heavenly Father should be.

In John chapter 17, Jesus spoke:

20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

Jesus spoke the above prayer which is the absolute Truth.  FATHER desires HIS Love be in us as well.  HE is the greater and we are the lesser thus it is HIM who brings forth blessing and prosperity in our lives.

The previous writings concerning the tithe is to provide each of us the revelation of Holiness by acknowledging FATHER’S ownership thus affirming our relationship with HIM.  Every time I tithe, I acknowledge FATHER’S ownership of every aspect of my life.  I actively submit to that ownership by giving the firstfruits of my labor and increase.

FATHER is not reluctant to respond to our willingness to give for HE wishes to give us favor in all areas of our life.  We should not be reluctant to accept this favor in whatever form it comes to us.  We need to be “receivers” as well as givers and expect blessings and prosperity to come our way.  It is written in Hebrews chapter 11:

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.

We need to have faith in receiving as well as giving.  It is not FATHER’S desire for the wicked to have all the resources but rather it is HIS Divine Intent that the Sons and Daughters be stewards over the resources on earth.  After all, the wicked have no interest in establishing FATHER’S Kingdom on earth.  We need to expect FATHER’S rewards but it requires us to walk in faith.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 4:

17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.

Yes, we have an account in Heaven which rewards those who give with a pure heart.  In Deuteronomy chapter 15, FATHER spoke:

4 … there may be no poor among you; for the LORD will greatly bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance— 5 only if you carefully obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe with care all these commandments which I command you today.

FATHER has not changed HIS mind concerning the poor.  It is HIS desire for those who walk according to HIS Word to be blessed and prosper.  HE may use you or me to be instruments of HIS blessing so don’t be surprised if HE calls upon you and/or me to be a blessing to others.

FATHER wants blessing and prosperity to flow from Heaven THROUGH you and me.  We must not hinder that flow by being reluctant to receive HIS favor.  As we are found faithful in a little, we will rise to the next level giving and receiving.  Let us not hinder HIS plan of expansion but let us embrace it and be an integral part of it.  Now is the time to be a partaker of HIS Divine nature.

Generosity

January 22nd, 2020

Jesus taught generosity yet many believers today don’t emulate Jesus in this area.  They attempt to minimize their financial outlay to those whom they hire rather than pay a fair or even a generous amount for their work done.

The questions you should ask: would the person want to do business with me in the future?  Was I generous or stingy?  Did I try to exploit the person?  Did I try to get something for nothing?  Did I pay the person in a timely manner or did I force  him or her to wait?

Do we want FATHER to treat us generously or withhold blessing as though HE is a limited GOD?  FATHER has limitless resources and those very resources are available to those who represent HIS nature of generosity.  If you hoard money and “things” then you can’t expect FATHER to act on your behalf.

The following passage expresses FATHER’S Agape Love in multiple facets. In John chapter 6, it is written by The Holy Spirit:

1 After these things Jesus went over the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias. 2 Then a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His signs which He performed on those who were diseased. 3 And Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.

4 Now the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near. 5 Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” 6 But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.

7 Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little.”

8 One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, 9 “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?”

10 Then Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples[fn] to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.” 13 Therefore they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten.

Were the people fully satisfied after they ate?  Yes and they had more than enough.  Was the lad who provided the loaves and fishes satisfied with sharing?  It might have been the best day of his financial life and I am sure his family expressed gratitude for the increase.  Jesus was never reluctant to give above people’s expectation.  He never reluctantly healed anyone nor was He reluctant to cast out a demon and set the person free.  What is it worth to heal you of an “incurable” disease?  One woman with an issue of blood spent all she had with doctors but was left in the same condition.  Jesus corrected her condition and returned her back to health.

If we are going to pray for FATHER’S favor in our daily lives, we should express that same favor to those in need.  We need to be known for our generosity and fairness with others.  FATHER once told me “Negotiation is manipulation and manipulation is not of ME.”  Ouch!  I prided myself in being a good negotiator.  I immediately repented and purposed to no longer negotiate in any transaction.  I now ask the price and simply say yes or no based on the leading of The Holy Spirit.

We need to allow The Holy Spirit to guide us in all actions and transactions so that we will reflect the Love of Our Heavenly Father.  Otherwise, men will not be drawn to us as they were Jesus.  Let unconditional Love have preeminence over “conditional” love.  It’s all about the Golden Rule, Love your neighbor as yourself.

Discerning

January 21st, 2020

Leave the old and prepare for the new.

There is a lot of unrest coming very soon.  We must be prepared by operating in the discerning of spirits.  This is one of the aspects of walking by The Holy Spirit. 

Peter wrote by The Holy Spirit in his 2nd epistle chapter 1:

2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

We must live a crucified life by denying “self” and walking according to The Holy Spirit.  There will be times when we will be called upon to make a decision either to listen to our soulish desires or walk according to what The Holy Spirit has said in our own spirit. 

The one who walks in the crucified life will choose leading of The Holy Spirit every time.  We must develop this discernment and become extremely sensitive to it.  As we live a crucified life, we will walk in fellowship with FATHER.

In the last days, deception will be very convincing as we are designed to believe what we hear and see.  Consider a child.  The child begins life “recording” just about everything through the senses, whether good or bad.  Good parents will do their best to protect the child from the “bad” and will correct such exposure whenever possible.

We must consistently meditate on the Word so that we remain very discerning.  We must judge everything by The Word in order to expose the manipulation and control promoted by the world.  The media will try to convince us of a lie by manipulating facts which support their intent.  We must protect ourselves from such deception.

We are called to bring forth Heaven to earth.  Many pray The Lord’s Prayer but don’t really believe and expect the prayer to manifest in their lives.  In Matthew chapter 6, Jesus spoke:

10  Your Kingdom come.

Your will be done

On earth as it is in Heaven.

In FATHER’S Kingdom, there are no words such as “try” or “maybe”.  When FATHER speaks, manifestation occurs.  We are called to bring forth Heaven into our personal walk.  When we do, our body responds to the other realm.  Our finances respond to the other realm and our thinking responds to the other realm.  We begin to speak like Our Elder Brother Jesus and walk in His ways, not our prior soulish ways. 

We are no longer interested in manipulating or controlling people and/or events to suit a soulish agenda.  We are only interested in testifying of Our Lord Jesus Christ by our words and actions.  My world is supposed to be dictated by The Kingdom.

People will change their theology to accommodate their unbelief.  Instead, we must once and for all deal with our unbelief by immersing ourselves in FATHER’S Word thus renewing our mind to the point of walking in great faith.

In FATHER’S Kingdom, you cannot manipulate or control.  We are to stand out to the world because we are Holy.  Holiness is a result of ownership by FATHER.  We are HIS and should walk according to this revelation of ownership.  I am not my own nor do I seek to walk apart from the leading of The Holy Spirit.

Heaven and FATHER’S will are one with each other.  If you want Heaven on earth then you must do FATHER’S will, it is that simple.  Let each of us focus on doing HIS will today and the Kingdom will manifest to a greater degree on earth.  Our actions will cause a shift and begin to change history.  We will walk in the ability to discern the Truth from lies and will not be deceived thus FATHER’S Kingdom will grow in our lives.

Without Exception

January 20th, 2020

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 9:

6 Here’s my point. A stingy sower will reap a meager harvest, but the one who sows from a generous spirit will reap an abundant harvest. 7 Let giving flow from your heart, not from a sense of religious duty. Let it spring up freely from the joy of giving—all because God loves hilarious generosity! 8 Yes, God is more than ready to overwhelm you with every form of grace, so that you will have more than enough of everything—every moment and in every way. He will make you overflow with abundance in every good thing you do. 9 Just as the Scriptures say about the one who trusts in him:

Because he has sown extravagantly and given to the poor,

    his kindness and generous deeds will never be forgotten.  TPT

And The Holy Spirit also recorded in Psalm 112:

1 Shout in celebration of praise to the Lord!

Everyone who loves the Lord and delights in him

will cherish his words and be blessed beyond expectation.

2 Their descendants will be prosperous and influential.

Every generation of his godly lovers will experience his favor.

3 Great blessing and wealth fills the house of the wise,

for their integrity endures forever.

4 Even if darkness overtakes them,

sunrise-brilliance will come bursting through

because they are gracious to others, so tender and true.

5 Life is good for the one who is generous and charitable,

conducting affairs with honesty and truth.

6 Their circumstances will never shake them

and others will never forget their example.

7 They will not live in fear or dread of what may come,

for their hearts are firm, ever secure in their faith.

8 Steady and strong, they will not be afraid,

but will calmly face their every foe

until they all go down in defeat.

9 Never stingy and always generous to those in need,

their lives of influence and honor will never be forgotten,

for they were full of good deeds.

10 But the wicked take one look at a life lived like this

and they grit their teeth in anger, not understanding their bliss.

The wicked slink away speechless in the darkness that falls,

where hope dies and all their dreams fade away to nothing,

nothing at all!

Our Lord Jesus Christ displayed the highest form of giving when He went to the cross on our behalf to redeem us back to Our Heavenly Father.  What better way to imitate Him than to be joyous givers to those in need.  Jesus was never hesitant to heal the sick or feed the hungry.  He is our perfect example of walking in full maturity as Sons and Daughters.

Jesus did not wait in the temple for everyone to find Him.  Instead, He went all about doing good, healing the sick, and casting out demons.  We should all aspire to emulate Him in every way because in John chapter 14 He spoke the following:

12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”

We should not shy away from this declaration made by Our Elder Brother but fully embrace every word He spoke.  Since He only spoke what He heard from FATHER, we know this is FATHER’S Divine Intent for us if we will submit to The Holy Spirit in all areas… without exception.

Giving To The Poor

January 19th, 2020

I desire each of us to live out of our spirits which are connected to The Holy Spirit.  I have no interest in using the power of suggestion like the media uses in commercials.  Neither am I interested in manipulating facts in order to move you along a path of my choosing. 

My goal is that we are all led by The Holy Spirit in a consistency that brings forth glory to Our Heavenly Father and testifies of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Anything else is simply worthless and will distance us from FATHER’S perfect plan, will, and purpose.

When we are fully led by The Holy Spirit, you and I will be in unity and our impact on this world will dramatically increase.  The result will be an increase in FATHER’S Kingdom on earth.

There are no limitations in Heaven and so there are no limitations to those who fully walk by The Holy Spirit.  Yielding to THE SPIRIT removes all limitations we previously walked in.

Angels are sent to get you to cooperate with Heaven and fulfill what is written in your book in Heaven (Psalm 139:16).  They will protect you from disaster but will not act outside FATHER’S Will.  They are in strict obedience to FATHER’S Word so in order for us to activate angels on our behalf, we must be in obedience to The Word as well.  We must not dilute the Word with man’s opinions or our own rationalization why HIS Word does not mean what It says.  This is what happened in the Garden.

In Matthew chapter 19, it is written by The Holy Spirit for our benefit:

16 Now behold, one came and said to Him, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?”

17 So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.”

18 He said to Him, “Which ones?”

Jesus said, “‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ 19 ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”

20 The young man said to Him, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?”

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.

Jesus urged the young man to disconnect himself from the world system, specifically in the area of finances.  By giving his wealth to the poor, the young man would receive treasure in Heaven which is far superior to what he currently had.

Do you think the young man would then live in scarcity and lack for the rest of his life?  Absolutely not!  He would have set himself up with FATHER’S favor in everything he set his hand to do.  His resources would then be Holy and set apart for his Heavenly purpose following Jesus.

If you want to be perfect, your wealth must not be off limits to FATHER.  The Sons and Daughters who desire to reach full maturity (perfect) must be willing to offer up that which is FATHER’S to begin with.  The tithe was never mine, just like the tree in the Garden was never Adam’s to eat from and consume its fruit.

If the devourer is active in your life, then there is an issue to be dealt with.  You can argue doctrine and debate all you want or you can simply “test” FATHER to see if HE won’t rebuke the devourer for your sake.

FATHER’S Agape Love wants to protect your resources through HIS command of the tithe.  Those who receive this revelation will act in accordance with Malachi chapter 3.  Abram tithed before he received the full revelation of his calling thus FATHER prepared him for the next level of his calling.

Jesus urged the young man to give to the poor who could not repay him.  This would obligate FATHER to bless his giving for FATHER repays those who take care of the poor, the orphans, and widows.  The rich young ruler was “owned” by his wealth rather than be submitted to FATHER’S ownership of Holiness.

Never tithe out of compulsion. Give out of Agape Love!

Tithing’s Holiness

January 18th, 2020

The Holy Spirit recorded in Psalm 34:

9 ​​Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!

​​There is no want to those who fear Him.

10 ​​The young lions lack and suffer hunger;

​​But those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.

And in Psalm 111:

​10 ​​The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;

​​A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.

​​His praise endures forever.

What was FATHER’S first commandment to man?  It is recorded by The Holy Spirit in Genesis chapter 2:

15 Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Out of all the fruit-bearing trees in the Garden, only one was off limits.  Why?  FATHER reserved it for HIMSELF.  However, Adam was directed to tend and keep the Garden and there was no mention of excluding any tree from his labor.  Adam’s tending of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil effectively represented a tithe for it was not his to partake.  This established the Truth that FATHER is supreme to Adam and thus man has established boundaries which cannot be ignored.

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was surely a fig tree since both Adam and Eve immediately covered themselves with fig leaves once their eyes were opened.  It was the closest tree at the time so they would have taken leaves from it.  Didn’t they in essence consume the tithe and treat it as “common” rather than Holy? 

This tree tested Adam and Eve concerning “the fear of the LORD” and they failed the test.  They relied on the worldly wisdom of the serpent rather than submit to FATHER’S Wisdom and understanding freely given in the command.  They consumed the tithe and submitted to the devourer thus opening the door for the thief to kill, steal, and destroy.

In Genesis chapter 14, it is written by The Holy Spirit:

18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. 19 And he blessed him and said:

​​​“Blessed be Abram of God Most High,

​​Possessor of heaven and earth;

20 ​​And blessed be God Most High,

​​Who has delivered your enemies into your hand.”

​And he gave him a tithe of all.

How did Abram know about tithing?  How did Melchizedek know about tithing?  WHO revealed to Melchizedek that he was a priest of GOD Most High?

How did Melchizedek know about communion?

It is written by The Holy Spirit In Hebrews chapter 7:

1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, 2 to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated “king of righteousness,” and then also king of Salem, meaning “king of peace,” 3 without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually.

“Made like the Son of God” is different than “being” the Son of GOD.  Wouldn’t Melchizedek have fulfilled the ministry of Our Lord Jesus Christ if He truly was Jesus standing before Abram?  The point is that communion and tithing go hand in hand.  Both require us to have “the fear of THE LORD” when we participate or else we have missed a critical aspect of both.

When we give a tithe, we should give it in complete reverence to the tithe being FATHER’S and not ours.  It we casually give a tithe, the fear of THE LORD is missing in the act tied to giving what is due HIM.   FATHER’S great grace and mercy have intervened on our behalf since we did not have revelation of the importance of the act of tithing.  Now we are accountable for how we give our tithes and offerings.  Let that Holy firstfruit be acknowledged in proper fashion.

Chosen And Favored

January 17th, 2020

You and I are in the priesthood.  Peter wrote by The Holy Spirit in his first epistle chapter 2:

4 So keep coming to him who is the Living Stone—though he was rejected and discarded by men but chosen by God and is priceless in God’s sight. 5 Come and be his “living stones” who are continually being assembled into a sanctuary for God. For now you serve as holy priests, offering up spiritual sacrifices that HE readily accepts through Jesus Christ.

To be identified as Christ’s living stones means that we are in union with Him and share His nature, for He is the Living Stone.  Wherever we go, favor must have its way and we will operate in the blessings ordained by FATHER and released to us through our honoring HIM in our lives.  Our actions reflect our Holiness.

You and I are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a HOLY nation, HIS own special people, that you and I may proclaim the praises of HIM who called us out of darkness into HIS marvelous light.  We are to walk in the light and that light will draw favor from every area.

Favor is not positional, it is relational.  Just because you attain a position in a ministry does not mean you will receive favor.  If you have matured into a relationship with Our Heavenly Father, you have opened yourself up to HIS favor.  This is why earthly titles mean nothing in Heaven.  I claim to be no expert in any discipline whatsoever even though the world promotes titles in just about every discipline of study.

We must seek to walk in the legitimacy of The Gospel, not what men have cleverly taught in order to support their own agenda.  This is one of a multitude of reasons I must pray in The Holy Spirit daily.  We don’t need to be waiting on FATHER to impart some new mystery, we need to walk in the pure Gospel we have received.  While many sit passively by, children are going hungry.  The adversary promotes passiveness by having people focus only on future events at the expense of “now”.  Is your angel sitting around and waiting for you to become active?

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 1:

13 But to which of the angels has He ever said:

​​“Sit at My right hand,

​​Till I make Your enemies Your footstool” ?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

Angels minister “for” us and are sent to accomplish those things which promote the Kingdom.  Each of the angels assigned to you and me should be busy all the time as we step into the fullness of our purpose.

We have received much revelation and some of us have had visitations but it is time for habitation and walking in HIS Glory.  Jesus spoke in John chapter 14:

23 Jesus replied, “Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place.”

Jesus set an expectation of habitation in those who Love Him and keep HIS Word. HE will inhabit those who fully walk in Agape Love and our focus is to “master” walking in that Love.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 12:

1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship

FATHER inhabits the praise and worship of HIS Sons and Daughters so let us become a consistent and acceptable habitation for HIM, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit.  Then, we will be known as one of the “lively” stones.

Our Holy Firstfruits

January 16th, 2020

FATHER did not come up with the idea of the tithe and then create us to submit to it.  The tithe is for our benefit and to help us fulfill our calling.  The 10% was never yours or mine, it sets apart the whole as being Holy and off limits to the devourer.

Let’s take a close look at Malachi chapter 3 which was written by The Holy Spirit:

8 ​​“Will a man rob God?

​​Yet you have robbed Me!

​​But you say,

​‘​In what way have we robbed You?’

​​In tithes and offerings.

9 ​​You are cursed with a curse,

​​For you have robbed Me,

​​Even this whole nation.

10 ​​Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,

​​That there may be food in My house,

​​And try (H974) Me now in this,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts,

​​“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven

​​And pour out for you such blessing

​​That there will not be room enough to receive it.

​11 ​​“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes,

​​So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,

​​Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts;

12 ​​And all nations will call you blessed,

​​For you will be a delightful land,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts.

Where else in Scripture does FATHER say to “test” HIM or HIS Word?  This shows us how important it is for us to understand the benefit of tithes and offerings to us.  HE commits to rebuke the devourer for our sakes and HE commits to open up the windows of Heaven to pour out blessings to us.  What will be the result of my tithing?  All the nations will call me blessed.

The tithe protects the rest of our income from the devourer.  This Truth is also found in Romans chapter 11, written by The Holy Spirit:

16  For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.

Jesus spoke the following parable in Luke 13:

20 Jesus taught them another parable: “How can I describe God’s kingdom realm? Let me give you this illustration: 21 It is like something as small as yeast that a woman kneads into a large amount of dough. It works unseen until it permeates the entire batch and rises high.”

When we tithe, the rest of the income we receive is Holy unto FATHER as well.  We need to understand this Truth so that we can proclaim it and be thankful when we give.  We will no longer see it as anything but an act of Love toward FATHER by giving HIM what is already HIS to begin with.  This act reinforces our position against greed and idol worship.  The tithe permeates all aspects of our life and we begin to see the blessings surrounding us.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 5:

17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Is the revelation of the Divine Intent of the tithe part of FATHER’S Law?  Isn’t this the one command HE said to test HIM in? 

A law is a rule, particularly an established or permanent rule, prescribed by the supreme power of a state to its subjects, for regulating their actions, particularly their social actions. Laws are imperative or mandatory, commanding what shall be done; prohibitory, restraining from what is to be forborne; or permissive, declaring what may be done without incurring a penalty.

It is my responsibility to teach FATHER’S Divine Intent of Love toward us.  This includes showing others The Way out of enslavement by the world.  Tithing requires us to have faith in FATHER’S Word and expect HIS Word to come to pass in our life.  I can attest to the benefits of tithing thus I am speaking from experience. 

It is up to each of us to get the revelation of this benefit because it is counterintuitive to what the world promotes… as usual.  FATHER says to test HIM.  Isn’t that a command as well?

FATHER sanctifies and protects the “whole” by receiving the tithe and as a result HE protects us from loss to the devourer who will steal from us without hesitation.  HE created boundaries for us in all areas, not for restriction but to benefit, protect us, and promote our Divine purpose.  Let our finances reflect HIS Divine Intent as well.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 9:

6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 9 As it is written:

​​​“He has dispersed abroad,

​​He has given to the poor;

​​His righteousness endures forever.”

​10 Now may HE who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, 11 while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God. 12 For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God, 13 while, through the proof of this ministry, they glorify God for the obedience of your confession to the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal sharing with them and all men, 14 and by their prayer for you, who long for you because of the exceeding grace of God in you. 15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!

Servias Ministries accepts tithes and offerings.  Since our overhead is extremely low, most of your giving will be directed to our current focus of helping impoverished children.  Be assured that their angels are communicating the blessings before FATHER’S Face on the behalf of those who support this ministry.  If you are not led to join us in this project, ask FATHER where to direct your giving.  It is FATHER’S Will that we bear much fruit… including our finances.  FATHER doesn’t want our 10%, HE wants us!

FATHER’S Blessings

January 15th, 2020

What is FATHER’s Divine Intent for us concerning blessing and prosperity?  Are we to live a life of scarcity, barely making it from paycheck to paycheck?  Are we then expected to tithe or give cheerfully when there is not enough to feed our own family or pay our bills in a timely manner?  FATHER is no taskmaster and we must rely on HIS Divine Love and mercy in our lives as we move from scarcity to prosperity.

My wife and I were in the above situation early in our marriage.  I would feel guilty that I couldn’t afford to give when the pastor was compelling the congregation to give offerings.  What did I have to offer Our Heavenly Father?  Time.  We volunteered and helped out in the various activities of the church.  That represented our offerings at the time and FATHER received those offerings, we pleased FATHER similar to when Jesus was pleased with the widow who gave two mites.

Over time, our seed and our harvest grew as FATHER’S blessings came forth.  We received grace from FATHER and became highly favored in various situations which allowed us to prosper.  FATHER is faithful to HIS Word and HE has not changed, nor will HE.

The Holy Spirit recorded in Deuteronomy Chapter 28, FATHER’S Divine Intent for those who HE called out of the world system and into the Promised Land:

1 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God:

3 “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.

4 “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

5 “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

6 “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

7 “The LORD will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

8 “The LORD will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you.

9 “The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways. 10 Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the LORD will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. 14 So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

The children of Israel were set apart and so are you and me.  They were to inhabit the Promised Land but were not intended to live a life of scarcity indebted to other nations (aka the world).  Neither are we for we have been engrafted as Sons and Daughters of the MOST HIGH GOD thus we are intended to walk in the same blessings as were mentioned above.

The key to HIS blessings is our intent.  Are we willing to diligently obey the voice of the LORD OUR GOD?   Isn’t that the sign of a mature Son or Daughter?

Many have used the blessings of Deuteronomy 28 for their own enrichment and have quoted the verses over and over thinking FATHER would finally give in to their soulish desires.  The blessings from Heaven were and are intended to further HIS Kingdom and not some worldly pursuit.  As we embrace the prosperity meant to fund our individual purposes, let us not allow the past misuses to taint the revelation given by FATHER to us in HIS Word. 

Every now and then, we need to simply reset our thinking and allow fresh revelation to wipe away the past misunderstandings and experiences.  The blessings of obedience still hold true and those of us who accept FATHER’S Divine Intent for blessing will be able to fulfill what The Holy Spirit instructs without reluctance.  There is no need to be enslaved by the world’s system when FATHER has provided The Way for us to walk in.

Bringing Into Subjection

January 14th, 2020

FATHER first deals with your spiritual issues.  However, we have to get to the end of ourselves.  The solution to our current issues lies with our relationship with Jesus Christ.  Most of us don’t really understand eternity which is necessary to understand ourselves.  Being born again means that we don’t fit in with the world and its goals, customs, and expectations.

We are called to be separate from the world.  Holiness is ownership meaning we have been adopted into Sonship.  Our mind, will, and emotions must be renewed so that we are truly transformed in order to walk as mature sons and daughters.

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

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 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, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

Every thought is subject to the sifting of The Holy Spirit.  You may be able to watch your words, but are you watching your thoughts as well?  Those thoughts reflect your true condition.  Do you get upset at a car that cuts you off or do you acknowledge that this is a broken world and those things will happen?

When you read FATHER’S Word and question HIS intention, you are not yet fully trusting IN HIM.  If we truly believe the Word to be absolute Truth, we will respond in trust.  You may have been brought up in an environment where most don’t keep their word and now you have to overcome that programming.

I am not in charge of my life, FATHER is.  Since that is the case, I seek to do HIS perfect Will in all areas, including my thought life. If I am told to renew my mind and do not be conformed to this world, then I must make it a priority.  Only then will I be able to prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of Our Heavenly Father.  That proof determines my daily walk and the state of peace that I walk in.  When I am challenged by the world, I no longer respond based on the soul’s position.  I respond with the Word as Jesus did when He was tested.

When the Word comes to you, you will either embrace It or confront it.  I choose to embrace It and dramatically reduce the amount of time to maturity.  I was once hard-headed but that time has passed and now I simply prefer to do the Words of Jesus without confronting or challenging it with soulish reckoning.

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.

If you imitate Jesus, you are imitating Our Heavenly Father.  This is what we are called to do.  In Ephesians 1, Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit:

4 And HE chose us to be his very own, joining us to HIMSELF even before HE laid the foundation of the universe!  Because of his great love, HE ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in HIS eyes with an unstained innocence.

You and I are meant to represent FATHER before the world as we are called to be “imitators” of HIM in all areas of our life.  Just as a son imitates his earthly father, we are to walk in the likeness of Our Heavenly Father.  HE ordained this before the foundation of the world.  It is written in our Heavenly books describing our destiny (Psalm 139:16).

11 Through our union with Christ we too have been claimed by God as HIS own inheritance. Before we were even born, he gave us our destiny; that we would fulfill the plan of GOD WHO always accomplishes every purpose and plan in HIS heart.

As you and I passionately seek to walk in the fullness by being led of The Holy Spirit in all areas, we will become fitly joined together with the Chief Cornerstone, Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Our lives will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God’s power made available to us through faith. Then our lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through us!

Let us bring our minds into full subjection so that the immeasurable greatness of HIS power will operate consistently and bless others.
