Portals Of GOD

May 17th, 2022

FATHER’S grace is infinite because it arises out of FATHER’S infinite Love.  It can be describe as hyper-superabundant grace.  There is more grace than your past sins, my past sins, and all the sins of the entire world throughout history.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 5:

6For when the time was right, the Anointed One came and died to demonstrate His Love for sinners who were entirely helpless, weak, and powerless to save themselves.

7Now, would anyone dare to die for the sake of a wicked person?  We can all understand if someone was willing to die for a truly noble person. 8 But Christ proved God’s passionate Love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly!

The Cornerstone of our lives is based on Jesus Christ Who fully manifested FATHER’S unconditional Love for you and me.  We must never allow ourselves to become lukewarm in expressing this Truth.

9And there is still much more to say of His unfailing Love for us! For through the Blood of Jesus we have heard the powerful declaration, “You are now righteous in My Sight.” And because of the sacrifice of Jesus, you will never experience the wrath of God. 10 So if while we were still enemies, God fully reconciled us to Himself through the death of his Son, then something greater than friendship is ours. Now that we are at peace with God, and because we share in His resurrection life, how much more we will be rescued from sin’s dominion!

11And even more than that, we overflow with triumphant joy in our new relationship of living reconciled to God—all because of Jesus Christ!

Paul further wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Corinthians chapter 12:

7The extraordinary level of the revelations I’ve received is no reason for anyone to exalt me.  For this is why a thorn in my flesh was given to me, the Adversary’s messenger sent to harass me, keeping me from becoming arrogant. 8Three times I pleaded with the Lord to relieve me of this. 9But He answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you,  and My power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me.  10So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my Love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.

Note: Paul did not have a demon, though it was possible that a demon followed him to harass and hinder. This is more likely a metaphor of the harassment he endured, the constant misunderstanding and persecution that came to him because of his faith in Jesus. There is no indication that this “thorn” was a sickness. In Paul’s list of hardships (2 Cor. 11:23-27) he does not mention a sickness or disease.

The world chides the weak yet Paul was not embarrassed to admit his weaknesses.  Why?  He admits that we ALL are weak in comparison to Our Lord Jesus Christ and when we are weak, we become portals for God’s power.

Make Your Mind The Servant

May 15th, 2022

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.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 12:

1Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? To surrender yourselves to God to be His Sacred, living sacrifices. And live in Holiness, experiencing all that delights His Heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship.

2Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in His Eyes.

The world is consistent in its efforts to move us away from the perfect will of FATHER.  We are meant to walk in supernatural health and the world wants to make us permanent customers of their pharmaceuticals.  There is virtually a pharmaceutical advertised for every sickness or disease you can imagine.  They want to extract our money and keep us enslaved to their system.  If you die from their alternative, they simply classify it as an “unintended consequence”.

How do we guard ourselves against such nefarious intent?  We must renew our minds and allow The Holy Spirit to reveal all Truth to us.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 16:

12“There is so much more I would like to say to you, but it’s more than you can grasp at this moment. 13 But when the Truth-giving Spirit comes, He will unveil the reality of every Truth within you. He won’t speak on His own, but only what He hears from the Father, and He will reveal prophetically to you what is to come. 14He will glorify Me on the earth, for He will receive from Me what is Mine and reveal it to you. 15Everything that belongs to the Father belongs to Me—that’s why I say that the Divine Encourager will receive what is Mine and reveal it to you.”

Do you think the world is going to tell you the full truth and facts?  The god of this world is full of lies and perpetuates lies through those who are his.  When was the last time the government gave you financial assistance for building up your immune system?  They can send billions of dollars to promote war yet they have virtually no interest in you or me living drug-free.  Legalizing marijuana was not the answer.  Intake of any chemical will have a negative impact on the body.  It may not be today or tomorrow, but there will be an adverse impact.

It is vital that we focus on transforming our minds so that our minds will become servants of our spirits.  When my spirit warns me of a danger, I must not allow my mind to challenge that revelation.  I have had my share of failures in the past when my mind won the argument resulting in suffering loss.  This occurs less and less as I pay close attention to what The Holy Spirit is directing me to say and do.

As we focus on renewing our minds by The Word rather than what the media is promoting, we will navigate through the times ahead without the pain and suffering.

Turn Up The Fire!

May 14th, 2022

The spirit of deception stays hidden until Holy fire is applied.  The Holy Fire will burn up anything contrary to the Character of Jesus in us and those around us.  We must be prepared and willing to have anything burned away which is hindering our walk as the expressed Image of Our Heavenly Father on this earth.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 2:

1 I wish you could know how much I have struggled for you and for the church in Laodicea, and for the many other friends I’ve yet to meet. 2I am contending for you that your hearts will be wrapped in the comfort of Heaven and woven together into Love’s fabric. This will give you access to all the riches of God as you experience the revelation of God’s great mystery—Christ.

If you and I want full access to ALL the riches of God, we must be woven into Love’s fabric!  This is my deepest desire.  There are days where I am reminded that I am not there yet but FATHER Lovingly corrects me and shows me what is being exposed for removal.

3For our Spiritual wealth is in Him, like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered—Heaven’s Wisdom and endless riches of revelation knowledge.

As a young man, I sought physical riches but through Heaven’s Wisdom I now seek out the hidden treasures and endless riches associated with walking in HIS Image rather than the image of the soulish man I was projecting to others.

4I want you to know this so that no one will come and lead you into error through their persuasive arguments and clever words.

It is easy to blame others for our past actions.  This is due to spiritual immaturity and misdirected priorities.  As we increase our reliance on The Holy Spirit, our priorities are shifted to the appropriate focus which leads to the fullness of walking in HIS Image.  Had I been more mature, I would not have been swayed by clever, persuasive arguments which appealed to my intellect and soulish desires.

5Even though I’m separated from you geographically, my spirit is present there with you. And I’m overjoyed to see how disciplined and deeply committed you are because you have such a solid faith in Christ, the Anointed One.

6In the same way you received Jesus our Lord and Messiah by faith, continue your journey of faith, progressing further into your union with Him! 7Your spiritual roots go deeply into His life as you are continually infused with strength, encouraged in every way. For you are established in the faith you have absorbed and enriched by your devotion to Him!

How am I continuing my journey of faith?  I am immersing myself daily in The Word and praying in The Holy Spirit.  Spiritual roots take time to grow deeply and so I must not forget the time factor even though the world promotes instant gratification.

8Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of human logic. For they operate with humanistic and clouded judgments based on the mindset of this world system, and not the anointed Truths of the Anointed One.

As we move toward and embrace the mindset of Christ, there is a battle which takes place between the soul and the spirit within.  It centers around self-control and our outward response toward others.  We must purpose to walk in Love’s fabric during this transition.  Why?  We live in a broken world and will deal directly with its exposure before our very eyes.  The spirit of deception will no longer be able to hide as the Holy fire is turned up.  All will be exposed.

9For He is the complete fullness of Deity living in human form. 10And our own completeness is now found in Him. We are completely filled with God as Christ’s fullness overflows within us. He is the Head of every kingdom and authority in the universe!

Let HIS fullness overflow in you and me in all areas!

11Through our union with Him we have experienced circumcision of heart. All of the guilt and power of sin has been cut away and is now extinct because of what Christ, the Anointed One, has accomplished for us.

We must fully trust in the circumcision process.  The power of sin and the guilt of our past are no longer to be found in our hearts.  The adversary wants to use both to keep us from our callings but the circumcision of Love is permanent in our spirits.  Once we come to that realization, we simply need to respond to the adversary by The Word just as Jesus did.

12For we’ve been buried with Him into His death. Our “baptism into death” also means we were raised with Him when we believed in God’s resurrection power, the power that raised Him from death’s realm. 13This “realm of death” describes our former state, for we were held in sin’s grasp.  But now, we’ve been resurrected out of that “realm of death” never to return, for we are forever alive and forgiven of all our sins!

This baptism reflects our born again acceptance of Christ as we become new and old things have passed away.  I will admit that I had no appreciation for this baptism when I accepted Christ at a young age.  As I mature, my gratitude has come into line with HIS Sacrifice!  This is all about removing the blindness so that we can see clearly.

14He canceled out every legal violation we had on our record and the old arrest warrant that stood to indict us. He erased it all—our sins, our stained soul—He deleted it all and they cannot be retrieved! Everything we once were in Adam has been placed onto His cross and nailed permanently there as a public display of cancellation.

Let this statement never lose its impact or relegated to being commonplace in our hearts!

15Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were His!

Let us embrace the impact of this verse on our lives.  The spirit of deception does not want us to embrace this Truth for when we do, power and authority from On High will operate at a much higher level!  The Kingdom will expand at an exponential rate all around us.  Now is the time!

Is He Truly Blessed?

May 13th, 2022

Many people are under the misconception that someone who is prosperous is Godly since he or she has been “blessed”.  Many wealthy people believe themselves to have been “earmarked” by GOD because of their prosperity.  Not true!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Timothy chapter 6:

3  But if anyone spreads false teaching that does not agree with the healthy instruction of our Lord Jesus, teaching others that holy awe of God is not important, then they prove they know nothing at all! It’s obvious they don’t value or hold dear the healing Words of our Lord Jesus Christ. 4 They are covered with the clouds of conceit. They are loaded with controversy, and they love to argue their opinions and split hairs. The fruit of their ministry is contention, competition, and evil suspicions.

5 They add misery to many lives by corrupting their minds and cheating them of the Truth. They equate the worship of God with making great sums of money.

Money can easily ensnare the immature and thus those who promote the “name it and claim it” message along with “pay to play” mentality, leave much sadness in their path toward destruction. 

6 We have a “profit” that is greater than theirs—our holy awe of God! To have merely our necessities is to have enough. 7 Isn’t it true that our hands were empty when we came into the world, and when we leave this world our hands will be empty again?

Money is temporary and has wings.  I have observed wealthy people lose virtually all their wealth in a short period of time.  They also lost their “friends” who were nowhere to be found once the money was gone.  Our trust must be and remain in Our Lord Jesus Christ.  His Words are trustworthy and permanent.  Men’s words apart from Christ will be burned up with the wood, hay, and stubble.  How much money is needed in Heaven?  Zero!

8 Because of this, food and clothing is enough to make us content. 9 But those who crave the wealth of this world slip into spiritual snares. They become trapped by the troubles that come through their foolish and harmful desires, driven by greed and drowning in their own sinful pleasures. And they take others down with them into their corruption and eventual destruction.

A certain man I know lost his debt-free house when he was taken in by such teaching.  His family suffered greatly and required assistance from others as his family was in severe need.  He had a good job at the time but had dug a deep hole as he blindly pursued false doctrines related to money.  The minister had no remorse but turned a blind eye to the man’s family.

10 Loving money is the first step toward all kinds of trouble. Some people run after it so much that they have given up their faith. Craving more money pushes them away from the faith into error, compounding misery in their lives!

True Godliness is being an imitator of Our Heavenly Father.  First and foremost it is walking in Agape Love.  When you walk in this manner, you become known as a giver rather than a “taker”.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 5:

1Be imitators of God in everything you do, for then you will represent your Father as His Beloved Sons and Daughters. 2And continue to walk surrendered to the extravagant Love of Christ, for He surrendered His life as a sacrifice for us. His great Love for us was pleasing to God, like an aroma of adoration—a sweet healing fragrance.

FATHER, I repent of any and all actions which did not properly represent you to those with whom I come into contact.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

The Warning Of Laodicea

May 12th, 2022

Not only did Paul focus on the church in Laodicea but so did Jesus Himself as He appeared to John on the Island of Patmos. We must heed the warnings Jesus gave John to write and not allow ourselves to be caught up in deception.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 2:

1 I wish you could know how much I have struggled for you and for the church in Laodicea, and for the many other friends I’ve yet to meet. 2I am contending for you that your hearts will be wrapped in the comfort of Heaven and woven together into Love’s fabric. This will give you access to all the riches of God as you experience the revelation of God’s great mystery—Christ.

3 For our Spiritual wealth is in Him, like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered—Heaven’s wisdom and endless riches of revelation knowledge.

4 I want you to know this so that no one will come and lead you into error through their persuasive arguments and clever words. 5Even though I’m separated from you geographically, my spirit is present there with you. And I’m overjoyed to see how disciplined and deeply committed you are because you have such a solid faith in Christ, the Anointed One.

Paul’s concerned centered around teachings of persuasive arguments and clever words, especially of those who know and have memorized Scripture piecemealed together to fit their alternate doctrine (yes, it can be intimidating).  Their doctrines are often created by some past hurt, error, or inability to see (aka blindness).  I have been exposed to such teachings only to find their fruit lacking upon inspection.  They were clouds without rain and their followers exhibited the same fruitlessness.

Years later, Jesus visited the Beloved Disciple John to write a letter to the church at Laodicea.  The church was blinded by teaching Paul has warned of in the book of Colossians.

John recorded Jesus’ Words and by The Holy Spirit in the book of Revelation chapter 3:

14 Write the following to the messenger of the congregation in Laodicea, for these are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Ruler of God’s creation:

Jesus described Himself as the faithful and true Witness and as the Ruler of God’s creation for He is “the beginning Originator or Source of God’s creation”!

15I know all that you do, and I know that you are neither frozen in apathy nor fervent with passion.  How I wish you were either one or the other! 16But because you are neither cold nor hot, but lukewarm, I am about to spit you from My mouth.

When believers are deceived and think they are in the midst of GOD’S Will because they seem to be “blessed” based on the world’s standards, there is a notable probability they are lukewarm and will be judged accordingly.  The ministers give them a “product” that looks good but has not Spiritual substance.  They appeal to their souls rather than feeding their spirits.

Once you experience the Original, you then call anything else a fake.  You now know the difference because the quality isn’t there and you are able to discern quality.  My wife is extremely sensitive to those situations in churches thus she would have difficulty tolerating church services where the soulish was being subtly promoted.  Often the message preached was complicated or complex and hard for most to understand.  The message of Christ is simple and straightforward and even the children can embrace It.

17 For you claim, “I’m rich and getting richer—I don’t need a thing.”  Yet you are clueless that you’re miserable, poor, blind, barren, and naked!

Isn’t this the goal of the spirit of deception?  Isn’t this the result of the world’s various promotions through entertainment?  How many times do you experience some form of temporary entertainment until you finally realize the empty “after-effects”?

18So I counsel you to purchase gold perfected by fire, so that you can be truly rich. Purchase a white garment to cover and clothe your shameful Adam-nakedness.  Purchase eye salve to be placed over your eyes so that you can truly see. 19All those I dearly love I unmask and train.  So repent and be eager to pursue what is right.

I believe that those who read these blogs are among those that Jesus truly Loves.  Why?  It is because I purpose to only write what The Holy Spirit directs me to write.  There have been times where I started to veer off and then received correction… I deleted those words which were not to be included.  I repented and was eager to pursue what was right for that particular blog.  I too continue to go through correction as needed.

20Behold, I’m standing at the door, knocking.  If your heart is open to hear My Voice and you open the door within, I will come in to you and feast with you, and you will feast with Me.  21And to the one who conquers, I will give the privilege of sitting with Me on My throne, just as I conquered and sat down with My Father on His Throne.

22 The one whose heart is open let him listen carefully to what the Spirit is saying now to the churches.

Without the power of The Holy Spirit, the church is ineffective.

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

10These people insult anything they don’t understand. They behave like irrational beasts by doing whatever they feel like doing.  Because they live by their animal instincts, they corrupt themselves and bring about their own destruction. 11How terrible it is for them!  For they have followed in the steps of Cain.  They have abandoned themselves to Balaam’s error because of their greedy pursuit of financial gain.  And since they have rebelled like Korah rebelled, they will experience the same fate of Korah and likewise perish.

12These false teachers are like dangerous hidden reefs at your love feasts, lying in wait to shipwreck the immature. They feast among you without reverence, having no shepherd but themselves.  They are clouds with no rain, swept along by the winds.  Like fruitless late-autumn trees —twice dead, barren, and plucked up by the roots! 13They are wild waves of the sea (confusion), flinging out the foam of their shame and disgrace.  They are misleading like wandering stars (giving misguidance), for whom the complete darkness of eternal gloom has been reserved.

Beware when The Holy Spirit is not in the midst.

Advancing Into Perfection

May 11th, 2022

We must move beyond the basic message of Christ in order to fully express His Love to others.  We are to grow from converts to disciples, from disciples to fully mature and perfected Sons and Daughters.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 6:

1Now is the time for us to progress beyond the basic message of Christ and advance into perfection. The foundation has already been laid for us to build upon: turning away from our dead works to embrace faith in God,

2teaching about different baptisms, impartation by the laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.

3So with God’s enablement we will move on to deeper Truths.

Our dead works or “useless deeds” are the attempts of people to please God through religion, keeping religious laws and traditions, and serving others to gain influence with God. There was one “work” that brings life to all, that was the work of Christ on the cross.  Without the revelation of unconditional Love, people will attempt to earn favor with Our Heavenly Father.  Jesus first Loved us, not the other way around, so we don’t need to earn His Love: For GOD so Loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten Son.

The New Testament speaks of seven baptisms, including:

the baptism of fire  (Matthew 3:11-12)

the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13–14; 1 Corinthians 12:13)

the baptism of suffering (Jesus’ cross)  (Mark 10:35–39)

the baptism into the cloud (Matthew 17:5) (1 Corinthians 10:1–3)

the baptism into Moses  (1 Corinthians 10:1–3)

the baptism of repentance  (Mark 1:4)

and water baptism. (Matthew 3:13–17)

Though many believe that water baptism and being baptized in The Holy Spirit are the two applicable baptisms for today, I know a certain man who has experienced some aspect of either the baptism of fire or the cloud.  He is seeking further revelation of those.  I would say that many mature saints will experience some aspects of multiple baptisms depending on their callings.  We must not try to limit FATHER in our understanding.

Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 10 concerning not only His suffering but also that of the disciples:

35Jacob and John, sons of Zebedee, approached Jesus and said, “Teacher, will you do us a favor?”

36“What is it?” He asked.

37“We want to sit next to You when you come into Your glory,” they said, “one at Your right hand and the other at Your left.”

38Jesus replied, “You don’t have a clue what you’re asking for! Are you prepared to drink from the cup of suffering that I am about to drink? And are you able to endure the baptism into death that I am about to experience?

39They replied, “Yes, we are able.”

Jesus said to them, “You will certainly drink from the cup of my sufferings and be immersed into My death,”

Let each of us mature unto the point of whatever baptisms are meant for us to experience.  FATHER’S gift of grace will be upon us as we are immersed in the appropriate baptism.

Prophetic Interview

May 10th, 2022

You cannot solve a spiritual problem with a physical answer..

Overcoming Unbelief: Part 2

May 9th, 2022

We must deal with unbelief in order to operate as fully mature Sons and Daughters. Jesus told us that we must pray and fast in order to get our senses in line and submitted to the Spiritual.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 5:

11We have much to say about this topic although it is difficult to explain, because you have become too dull and sluggish to understand. 12For you should already be professors instructing others by now; but instead, you need to be taught from the beginning the basics of God’s prophetic oracles!  You’re like children (nepios) still needing milk and not yet ready to digest solid food. 13For every spiritual infant who lives on milk is not yet pierced by the revelation of righteousness. 

14 But solid food is for the mature, whose spiritual senses perceive Heavenly matters. And they have been adequately trained by what they’ve experienced to emerge with understanding of the difference between what is truly excellent and what is evil and harmful.

Spiritual discernment does not come through the five physical senses.  Spiritual discernment results from building up your spirit by immersing yourself in The Word and praying in THE SPIRIT.  You must also subject your physical senses to fasting as required.  If your appetite is craving something and you submit to the craving, your appetite needs to be placed under subjection.  If your carnal man urges you to watch the news on TV, you probably need to fast the TV program.  Get the picture?

The word carnal simply means: the flesh, denotes mere human nature, the earthly nature of man apart from Divine influence, and therefore prone to sin and opposed to God.

We must get to the point where our five physical senses are fully subordinate to our spirit.  When we are no longer moved by the five physical senses, we are able to partake of solid food as mentioned in verse 14.

When we fellowship with FATHER through prayer, we tell our physical senses that there is more to life than the physical.  When we pray in The Holy Spirit, we confirm to our sense of hearing that the spiritual realm has priority over the natural realm.  It is about retraining our souls and bodies to be in full submission to the spirit man.

The Greek word nepios means “still unfit to bear arms,” that is, unprepared for battle.  How are we to be spiritual warriors if we are intimidated by an adverse situation similar to the disciples in Mark chapter 9?  Now is the time to heed what Jesus revealed concerning spiritual maturity.  Do not delay for the time is short.
