The Tithe Cleanses The Rest

Wednesday, July 15th, 2020

Moses wrote by The Holy Spirit in Genesis chapter 12:

1 Now the LORD had said to Abram:

​​“Get out of your country,

​​From your family

​​And from your father’s house,

​​To a land that I will show you.

2 ​​I will make you a great nation;

​​I will bless you

​​And make your name great;

​​And you shall be a blessing.

3 ​​I will bless those who bless you,

​​And I will curse him who curses you;

​​And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

FATHER took on the responsibility to bless Abram and those people who blessed Abram as well.  They received blessing because they “blessed” Abram even though they did not have a direct covenant with FATHER.  I have personally seen this Truth operate in my business career.  I have also observed the results of the curse on people who have dealt in an unrighteous manner toward HIS Sons.

After Abram rescued Lot from Sodom and Gomorrah, he encountered Melchizedek king of Salem.  Each step of Abram had been ordered and his blessings had continued, even when he conducted a rescue of his nephew.  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.

21 Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself.”

22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth, 23 that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, ‘I have made Abram rich’— 24 except only what the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.”

Why did Melchizedek come out of Salem (Jerusalem) to meet with Abram?  Abram’s wealth and increase needed to be cleansed and blessed before coming any closer to Salem.  The tithe cleanses the rest.  Melchizedek brought bread and wine to take communion with Abram thus the tithe was sealed upon taking communion with Melchizedek.  All unrighteousness was being removed from Abram’s “assets”.  This was required before entry into Salem (complete, safe, peaceful, perfect, whole, full, at peace).

This tithe occurred before The Law, before Abram’s name change, and before details of the communion had been given.  Would Abram’s name change (nature change) have occurred without this critical event?  This event established that Abram was not led by greed but instead he willingly gave Melchizedek a tenth of all his possessions.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 11:

16 Since Abraham and the patriarchs are consecrated and set apart for God, so also will their descendants be set apart. If the roots of a tree are holy and set apart for God, so too will be the branches.

And:

19 You might begin to think that some branches were pruned or broken off just to make room for you. 20 Yes, that’s true. They were removed because of their unbelief. But remember this: you are only attached by your faith. So don’t be presumptuous, but stand in awe and reverence. 21 Since God didn’t spare the natural branches that fell into unbelief, perhaps HE won’t spare you either!

22 So fix your gaze on the simultaneous kindness and strict justice of God. How severely HE treated those who fell into unbelief! Yet how tender and kind is HIS relationship with you. So keep on trusting in his kindness; otherwise, you also will be cut off.

The world would have us believe that we are moving toward greater scarcity yet FATHER blesses those who honor HIM with their cheerful tithe.  Unbelief moves a person toward scarcity for he or she does not truly believe in FATHER’S blessings toward those who give with the right motivation.  The tithe cleanses the “whole”.

The Proper Focus

Tuesday, July 14th, 2020

The media would have us focus on the pandemic whereas Jesus wants us to focus on establishing FATHER’S Kingdom on earth.  Where does your focus lie?

Luke wrote by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 1:

1 To Theophilus, the lover of GOD.

I write to you again, my dear friend, to give you further details about the life of our Lord Jesus and all the things that He did and taught.

2 Just before He ascended into heaven, He left instructions for the apostles He had chosen by the Holy Spirit. 3 After the sufferings of His cross, Jesus appeared alive many times to these same apostles over a forty-day period. Jesus proved to them with many convincing signs that He had been resurrected.

During these encounters, He taught them the Truths of GOD’s Kingdom realm 4 and shared meals with them.

Jesus instructed them, “Don’t leave Jerusalem, but wait here until you receive the gift I told you about, the gift The FATHER has promised. 5 For John baptized you in water, but in a few days from now you will be baptized in the Holy Spirit!”

6 Every time they were gathered together, they asked Jesus, “Lord, is it the time now for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?”

7 He answered, “The FATHER is the one who sets the fixed dates and the times of their fulfillment. You are not permitted to know the timing of all that HE has prepared by HIS own authority. 8 But I promise you this—the Holy Spirit will come upon you and you will be filled with power. And you will be My messengers to Jerusalem, throughout Judea, the distant provinces—even to the remotest places on earth!”

9 Right after He spoke those words, the disciples saw Jesus lifted into the sky and disappear into a cloud! 10 As they stared into the sky, watching Jesus ascend, two men in white robes suddenly appeared beside them. 11 They told the startled disciples, “Galileans, why are you staring up into the sky? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but he will come back the same way that you saw him ascend.”

If you only had forty days left on earth, what would you be doing?  Establishing your future or recounting the past?  Jesus had spent the first forty days of His ministry being tested so He took advantage of His last forty days by ministering and teaching exactly what the disciples needed- focus on The Kingdom.

What is your number one priority?  I can tell you mine.  The first thing every morning I pray in Tongues.  Why?  Jesus established the importance of being led by The Holy Spirit else FATHER would not have immediately provided such a gift of empowerment once Jesus left the earth.

Jesus gave clear instructions and priority of receiving The Holy Spirit to the disciples.  Does the five-fold ministry give the same priority today?  Many of the churches in the United States has have relegated the baptism of The Holy Spirit to some back room so as not to make their congregation uncomfortable.  An uncomfortable immature congregation will interrupt the cash flow if they are challenged in any way.

Why do you think the world is in the mess they are in allowing those who are currently in control to shut down entire countries due to a virus that has taken less lives than abortion or tuberculosis?  It is clearly that last ditch effort of the adversary to prevent the Great Awakening in the TRUE CHURCH.

FATHER spoke in Haggai:

3 Then the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet, saying, 4 “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple to lie in ruins?” 5 Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways!

​6 ​​“You have sown much, and bring in little;

​​You eat, but do not have enough;

​​You drink, but you are not filled with drink;

​​You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm;

​​And he who earns wages,

​​Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.”

​7 Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways! 8 Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the LORD. 9 “You looked for much, but indeed it came to little; and when you brought it home, I blew it away. Why?” says the LORD of hosts. “Because of MY House that is in ruins, while every one of you runs to his own house. 10 Therefore the heavens above you withhold the dew, and the earth withholds its fruit.

The people were focused on their own house and not FATHER’S House thus HIS Kingdom.  As a result, they lived in scarcity.  We must reestablish our priorities if we as individuals will partake of HIS Divine Nature here on earth.  Those who honor and are led by The Holy Spirit will walk in the same empowerment as the apostle in the Book of Acts.  The purpose of empowerment is to establish FATHER’S Kingdom on earth!

I am not ashamed of The Holy Spirit nor do I hide the fact that I speak in Tongues more than most.  Let us be bold in our beliefs and acts accordingly.  It is critical that we maintain the proper focus in these times for the Great Awakening is at hand.

Ben Yamin; Son of the Right, or Right to be the Son. Part 2

Monday, July 13th, 2020

Our Beloved Brother Alan continues:

After making peace with Laban, and cutting a covenant with Laban to agree that their individual gods would watch between them to essentially keep them honest in their covenant terms, Jacob departs from the region of Padan Aram to continue his trek back to Canaan, and to his Father Isaac’s kindred.  Chapter 32 of Genesis gives a detailed account of how Jacob, the ‘supplanter, plans to send gifts and offerings in the direction of Esau to soften the impact of Esau’s response when he finds out that Jacob and company are returning to the region.  And Jacob’s advance party returns to tell him that while they were on their way to greet Esau, they were met by Esau and his company of 400 that were coming out to meet them.  This ‘news’ greatly disturbs Jacob, and he makes plans to manage the situation if Esau’s intentions are hostile or combative. [Gen. 32:6-8]  Jacob then launches into a reminder to YHWH, the God of my fathers, that YHWH told him to return to his father’s kindred and land, and YHWH will deal kindly with him. 

Jacob is being sifted, and Gen. 32: 9-23 details the plans Jacob was making to protect his possessions and to manage the pending confrontation with Esau.  Jacob is doing what Jacob does best.  He is preparing to supplant a threatening situation with a more benevolent possibility.  However, Jacob’s prayer in verse 9-12 was for deliverance from the threatening hand of Esau.  But God had a more complete correction of the plight of Jacob than just neutralizing the threat of Esau in the mind/heart of Jacob.  This scenario reminds me of the man lying at the pool of Bethesda, John 5:6.  The man desired that someone would help him get into the pool, for it was believed that if you could get into the pool, you could be relieved of your ailment.  To him Jesus said, “Will you be made whole”?  Like Jacob, the man was simply looking for some relief from his distress.  However, there was a complete makeover, and restructuring of his life in store that the man could not possibly have believed.

Jacob has asked to be relieved of the distress of Esau, but he was in for a complete makeover.  Jacob was in for a name change, which is always indicative of a nature change.  And this is revealed in Gen. 32:22.  Jacob took his wives and maid-servants and his eleven sons and passed over the ford Jabbok.  The Hebrew word ‘yah-bok’ is Strong’s # H2999.  The word is illustrative of emptying a vessel of whatever contents it contained, for the contents are no longer acceptable, and must be discarded.The primary root is Strong’s # H1238, ‘bah-qaq’ which also is descriptive of being emptied of those things, or qualities, that are no longer acceptable for the assignment that lies ahead.  Jacob asked for relief from Esau.  God however had decided to empty Jacob of Jacob, that he may be replaced with Israel.  This is why I have said in the past that Jacob had eleven sons.  But Jacob’s name was to be changed to Israel before the birth of Benjamin, just as Abram had to have a name/nature change before becoming siring Isaac. 

We recognize that there were many years of ‘makeover’ in the process of changing the nature/identity of Jacob until he could be recognized or considered Israel.  However, the process always first begins with accepting a name change to indicate a change of nature.  And so Jacob ‘crosses over’ the brook (nah-hkhal; most often translated as ‘inheritance’) to inherit the emptying of his carnal, or soulish and selfish limitations.  The word ‘nah-hkhal’ (Strong’s #5157, 5158) is used to refer to that which you are inheriting.  It is sometimes translated as ‘brook’, ‘river’, ‘steam’ or ‘valley’ to refer to a physical border to indicate a border or place where an ‘inheritance’ begins, or ends.  The brook ‘Jabbok’, or emptying, is the inheritance that Jacob is receiving in order to prepare his introduction to the ‘new land’ of Israel.  And so begins the beguine.

Gen. 32: 24 – 31.  And so Jacob finds himself alone, and in a struggle with a ‘man’, an ‘iysh’, Strong’s # H376, contracted from the formal ‘enosh’, Strong’s # H582.  There are three Hebrew words most always used to indicate ‘man’, or mankind.  The most recognized is the word ‘adam’.  The most often used throughout the Old Testament is ‘iysh’, which refers to ‘adam’ in his divided identity of ‘soul’ and ‘spirit’.And the other is ‘geber’, which is where the word Gabriel comes from.  ‘Iysh’ is the word used when the feminine aspect of ‘adam’ (iyshah) is separated in ‘adam’ by YHWH to be given the form of ‘woman’ (iyshah).  She was called ‘iyshah’, which is the feminine form of this word, because she was separated from/within the ‘iysh’, the masculine form of this word.  A deep sleep was imposed upon ‘adam’, which he ultimately only awakens from in Christ.

And so Jacob wrestles with, grapples with, his ‘iysh’ self.  But the victory cannot be gained that way, and no amount of supplanting can rid yourself of carnal and soulish appetites and reasoning.  The ‘iysh’ must be reunited with the ‘iyshah’ within all of us, and that is only accomplished by the Wholly Spirit of Truth in Love, which is the Christ identity that we receive as a gift of God from yielding our natures to the makeover of the Wholly Spirit within.  Jacob is being introduced to “…will you be made Whole”? 

Jacob has the revelation that he has been wrestling and struggling against the nature of God, and he proclaims the name of this ‘place of struggle’ as Peniel.  To translate this word literally into English, I am very confident that it is proper and acceptable to describe this word as “My face is God”; or “My face with God”.  Either is acceptable, because it indicates you have ‘seen God’, and you still exist.  Pagan religions believe if you saw a god’s face, you would have to die; cease to exist.  That isn’t far wrong, because when you see your own face as the face of God, you have essentially died to the old carnal thinking that had you so twisted and maligned all along.  Yashua, as Messiah, appeared to reveal and declare to us the nature of God the Father, and God is Spirit [John 14 thru 17], and the Spirit of God, in you, empowers you and emboldens you to manifest the Spirit of God in whatever way the Wholly Spirit within reveals to you is called for.  Your face becomes the face of God to whatever situation needs to ‘see God’ to be healed, or made Whole.  “Show and Tell”?  Hmmmm.

From this revelation of struggling with his ‘iysh’ limitations, Jacob realizes that he has been struggling against God all along.  And now, he is prepared to have the sun (Son) arise on his experience (Gen. 32:31], as he ‘crossed over’ Penuel he halted on his thigh.  I don’t doubt it, for his walk is now being influenced by a power and authority he could not possibly have considered before this experience.  Penuel, is the same concept as Peniel, except Peniel is first person possessive identity.  Penuel, from its Hebrew spelling, is third person identity.  I have likened this to Jacob realizing that his face of God now has to recognize his brother, Esau, a third person identity,as the face of God.  And from this encounter, the pageant takes on a completely different flow, leading Jacob into situation after situation that he has to begin to trust on his Peniel revelation rather than trusting the supplanting that has directed his steps to this point in his journey. 

Jacob is beginning the dance of becoming Israel, and it isn’t a short dancing lesson.  And from this Peniel revelation within Jacob, now on his journey to becoming Israel, he is allowed to be the father of ‘ben yamin’; the right to be the son.  Rachel becomes pregnant from her prophecy “God will add another son”. Gen. 35: 16-18; “And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Ben-oni: [ohn; Strong’s # H202-206].  This small word has been used prolifically throughout the Old Testament Hebrew, and it gets translated a number of different ways, but all have a negative, or negating, connotation.  This word is translated most often as ‘iniquity’.  It is a reference to a quality of life that is seen as inferior, or distorted or less than exemplary.  It is obvious from this word that Rachel was lamenting that her ‘iniquity’ had produced this hard birthing in which she died.  She called her ‘added’ son the son of her iniquity; but his father called him Ben-yamin.”  The Hebrew ‘yamin’, Strong’s # H3225, is often used to indicate the ‘right’ versus the ‘left’, although the nature of this word ‘yamin’ is much more complex than just ‘right’ or ‘left’. 

When translating this concept into western languages, it most often has the word ‘hand’ added to the text.  However, rarely is the Hebrew word ‘yad’, the hand, ever included in the original text to specify specifically it is referring to a ‘right hand’, versus a left hand.  There are a few such instances, but not many.  By translating this word ‘yamin’ as ‘right hand’ gives a much skewed understanding of the worth of this word ‘yamin’.  Jacob, now contending with his ‘Peniel’ and ‘Israel’ revelations, refused to allow his son to be referred to as ‘iniquitous’, but rather the son of his ‘right’.  Jacob is now seeing himself, and his world, through different eyes, and his character is beginning to show the influence of these influences.  Jacob did not ‘cheat’ Esau out of the birthright blessing.  Esau offered to sell a responsibility that he despised.   Jacob did, however, go along with his mother’s scheme to deceive Isaac into blessing Jacob, thinking he was blessing Esau.  And for this previous act of deceit that his mother conjured up, there would be pain and anguish that he would have to endure on his journey to ‘Israel’.  Just as do we all in our journey to Christ. 

In Christ we are all seated, in our Christ mind, at the Right of God.  I have often wondered if the ‘left hand’ of God is inferior to the ‘right hand’ of God.  But the ‘Right’ of God, Our Father, is the position of coming to know Our Father’s Heart, and Mind, and manifesting His nature is the Right thing for His Son, Christ, to do. 

Shalom and Shalom, Y’all and may the Right of God be the way you see yourself for ever more.

Ben Yamin; Son of the Right, or Right to be the Son. Part 1

Our Beloved Brother Alan writes:

The long and arduous journey of Jacob, since fleeing from the presence of his brother Esau some 20+ years previously, has brought him through a long list of encounters and developments that have revealed, in Jacob and to Jacob, that his wit and cunning have been sufficient to permit him to ‘supplant’ most, if not all, obstacles and controversies in his path.  And ‘supplant’ is probably the most illustrative word available to describe Jacob in his relationship with all he encounters on this journey from ‘adam’ to ‘Christ’.

Most dictionary descriptions of ‘supplant’ tend to shade this word as being a devious or dishonest means of succeeding another in a venture or venue.  But the negative connotations most apply to supplant, in my much studied opinion, is driven or formed more by religious bias than critical logic.  There is no moral imperative involved in being more successful in a field of endeavor than others that may have preceded you.  To ‘supplant’ another by being more successful in no way implies deceit or guile.  A supplanting may very well have been derived by malicious cunning or deceit, but the word ‘supplant’ in no way suggests the same.  That conclusion cannot be fairly or honestly assumed.  To supplant one that abandons or vacates or suspends a position of performance or responsibility does not necessarily indicate a motive of deceit or guile.  Such is just the case in the episode of Esau and Jacob. 

Esau despised the responsibility of ‘first-born’, and was willing to sell the ‘position’ of ‘first-born’ for a meal of bread and pottage. [Gen. 25:32-34; Heb. 12:16-17].  And even Isaac maligned Jacob in this event, rather than to admit that the first-born Esau had abandoned and despised the responsibility that goes with being ‘first-born’.  ‘First-born’, from the Hebrew language and the culture as well, places the ‘first-born’ into a position of servitude and responsibility where the rest of the family, and the family’s farm and well-being, falls on the shoulders of the ‘first-born’ to hold things together when the proverbial ‘poop hits the fan’.  No place in scripture can I find an example of a chronological ‘first-born’ that actually understands and manifests the responsibility that goes with being ‘first-born’; protector and defender of the family’s inheritance and potential. Only in Christ do we see that the ‘First-Born’ understood, and then accepted with Joy, the response ability that is called for in manifesting the Birth Right that is associated with being the First-Born Son of God, the Wholly Spirit of Truth in Love.

We all, birthed into this physical dimension, arrive here in the form, or limitation, as ‘adam’.  And as ‘adam’, or mankind, we begin our own individual journey in this dimension, learning to navigate the myriad of obstacles and challenges that this physical dimension demands that we experience, and learn to overcome or supplant; either by our own talents, or manipulations or deceits.  The negative spirits and/or energies to which this physical dimension exposes us all tends to cause us to focus on, and put our confidence into, an existence founded upon compromise, cunning or deceit in effort to grasp a “mere meal of bread and pottage”.  And yet, the Wholly Spirit of Truth in Love, that which we refer to as God, never abandons us to a comfort zone of compromise, deceit and deception.  For it is the Goodness of God that leads us to repent of our trust in carnal and selfish motives and attitudes [Rom. 2:4], and put our trust and reliance in the First-Born Identity of Christ, and to yield our motivations and manifestations to the Christ Identity that is the Gift of God to all who believe. 

Only The Father can identify, and confirm, the nature and performance of the First-Born.  Being ‘first-born’ chronologically has no benefit to afford or impart a superior spiritual identity or performance.  Only Being First-Born in Spirit can impart a confidence, desire and potential to manifest the Kingdom of God within and without.  When the First-Born of the Spirit of God manifests the Kingdom of God within and without, then indeed “…Thy Kingdom has come, in my earth as it is in Your Heavenly Realm”.

Into this very situation Jacob finds himself as he is departing Laban, and returning “…to the land of your Fathers, and to your kindred”. [Gen. 31:1-3]  And Jacob now is confronted with the realization that he doesn’t know if his brother, Esau, is still planning on killing Jacob because Esau despised the ‘birth-right’, and blames Jacob for purchasing a ‘birth-right’ that Esau had no ability or privilege to sell something he never possessed.  And a mere morsel of bread and pottage could never have separated the ‘birth-right’ from Esau if Esau had ever desired the birth-right, or believed that he was indeed the possessor of a responsibility of ‘first-born’.  By now, more than 20 years have passed, and maybe all have had the privilege of some serious ‘reality check’ in their reckonings and reasonings.

KJV Genesis 31:19 And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the images (teraphim; based on the verb ‘rapha’; to heal, or restore) that were her father’s.

Laban’s clan realizes that Joseph and company have packed up and left ‘Labanville’, and Jacob and his boys are not shepherding Laban’s flocks.  Laban pursues after Jacob to demand an explanation of Jacob’s behavior,and when Laban arrives on the scene, he confronts Jacob with the charge of having stolen his household gods, his ‘teraphim’.  Jacob responds with the following rebuttal to convince Laban that no one in the Jacob camp is guilty of such a crime. KJV Genesis 31:32 “With whomsoever thou findest thy gods, let him not live: before our brethren discern thou what is thine with me, and take it to thee. For Jacob knew not that Rachel had stolen them.”

Jacob uttered a death curse against the one that had stolen Laban’s ‘teraphim’; his household gods that he revered as his protectors, restorers and redeemers.  And undoubtedly, in his conversations with his wives, Jacob retold this in the hearing of his wives, while never acknowledging that the words of his mouth may someday become exceedingly bitter, indeed.  Jacob’s words never had the power to exert a death sentence against another, but guilt and anguish are powerful enemies in the mind of one that is struggling to survive physically.  Without question, Rachel lived in guilt for having stolen the household gods of her Father Laban, and continually she heard, ringing in her heart/mind, the words of her husband declaring a death sentence on the one that had stolen Laban’s ‘teraphim’.  And perilous days and times lay ahead, for Rachel was going to be pregnant with her second son, after having pledged in the naming of Joseph that “…YHWH will add (asaph) another son.” [Gen. 30:24]

To be continued…

Don’t Worry About Rejection

Saturday, July 11th, 2020

As I wrote yesterday, “We cannot lose.”  When FATHER formed us in the womb, HE also set aside all the provision for us to complete our individual callings.  In order to be of good courage, we must have this understanding as the chaos continues.

Did this Covid virus take FATHER by surprise?  Of course not!  Where are all the healing evangelists when you really need them?  Clearly, there has been a disconnect with those claiming to have a certain anointing and the lack of fruit we are expecting to come forth from them.

Many of us have suffered rejection by the current system as we have continued on the path known as The Way.  We have been unwilling to conform to rules and standards set forth by the religious system in place.  In Luke chapter 20, Jesus spoke:

9 Jesus taught the people this story:

“Once there was a man who planted a vineyard, then leased it out to tenants and left to go abroad and was away for a long time. 10 When the harvest season arrived, the owner sent one of his servants to the tenants to collect the landowner’s share of the harvest. But the tenants sent him away, beaten and empty-handed. 11 So the owner dispatched another one of his servants to collect his portion. But the tenants treated him the same way. They cursed him, beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. 12 Then the owner sent a third servant, but they brutalized him also with the same treatment. 13 Finally the owner of the vineyard said to his son, ‘Perhaps if I send you, my own cherished son, they will be ashamed of what they’ve done.’

14 “But when the tenants saw the son coming, they schemed among themselves. ‘This is the heir of the vineyard! If we kill him, the inheritance will be ours.’ 15 So they threw the son off the property and killed him.

“I ask you, what do you think the owner of the vineyard will do to those who murdered his son? 16 He will come and destroy them and give his vineyard to another.”

When the people heard this story, they all agreed, “This should never happen!”

17 Jesus looked straight at the people and said, “What do you think this verse means: ‘The worthless, rejected stone has become the cornerstone, the most important stone of all’? 18 Everyone who falls in humility upon that stone will be broken. But if that stone falls on you, it will grind you to pieces!”

19 When the high priests and experts of the law realized that this story was about them, they wanted to have Jesus arrested that very moment, but they were afraid of all the people.

Has anything changed in the last 2,000 years concerning man’s soulish condition?  Men and women will reject you if you don’t conform to their understanding even though they are blinded to the Absolute Truth.  Think not it to be unusual or unexpected for the enemy to rise up when FATHER is in the midst of bringing forth the Great Awakening.  Don’t allow rejection to control your life.  Jesus was rejected by His own people thus He knows exactly what we have experienced.

I shared a video a couple of days ago and many of you have had time to ponder it.  If you are afraid of what may be coming then I suggest you need to press in more and separate yourself from the media.  FATHER cannot and will not lose in any situation.  The devil has been trying to thwart FATHER’S plan for centuries but has failed every single time.  This time will be no different.

What will happen in November?  Whatever happens, I plan for a greater anointing in my life to overcome any obstacle the adversary may bring my way.  I say “Bring it on!”  Once again, we cannot lose.

We Cannot Lose

Friday, July 10th, 2020

We cannot lose.  In Psalm 91, FATHER is responding to me by saying:

14 ​​“Because he has set his Love upon ME, therefore I will deliver him;

​​I will set him on high, because he has known MY name.

15 ​​He shall call upon ME, and I will answer him;

​​I will be with him in trouble;

​​I will deliver him and honor him.

16 ​​With long life I will satisfy him,

​​And show him MY salvation.”

We do not need to ever be in defensive mode with the enemy.  FATHER is always way ahead of the adversary thus the adversary’s strategies will never win against the Remnant, those who are fully led by The Holy Spirit.

Before we were formed in the womb, FATHER assigned “provision” for HIS vision for our lives.  HIS Divine Intent will not be denied by “the created” thus in the end, we cannot lose and we need to change our mindsets to victory in all that we set our hand.  Let us not settle for less.

Jesus spoke of the “end times” in Matthew 24 and said:

27 The appearing of the Son of Man will burst forth with the brightness of a lightning strike that shines from one end of the sky to the other, illuminating the earth.

I ask you today, who can stop this event?  Nobody!  You and I are on the right side of the battle and must not be discouraged but instead be of good courage.  Would I go into battle expecting defeat?  We have the Creator of the universe guiding us in all manner thus we need not be dismayed with the current events.

David expressed this reality when he spoke by THE SPIRIT in 1 Samuel chapter 17:

26 Then David spoke to the men who stood by him, saying, “What shall be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?”

Once again, the “uncircumcised” have raised their ugly heads against the anointed of GOD.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 10:

3–4 For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide. 5 We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One. 6 Since we are armed with such dynamic weaponry, we stand ready to punish any trace of rebellion, as soon as you choose complete obedience.

It matters not to me where the battle is.  It can be spiritual, soulish, or in the flesh but there is no defeat to be suffered in any realm.  Who do you think regulates the heartbeat in every person on earth?  Who governs the wind, tornadoes, earthquakes, heat, hailstones, and other such phenomenon?  Man has attempted to control the weather but it remains in FATHER’S Hands.

Leaders on the earth are in as much power as they have been given by the people.  If the hearts of the people change, they will no longer follow a corrupt leader.  Corrupt leaders will attempt to intimidate the masses so that they can remain in control.  What happens when intimidation loses its power?  That leader loses his or her power.

We are not to be fearful of what lies ahead for we can be assured “We cannot lose.”

Prophecy Versus Opinion

Thursday, July 9th, 2020

Yesterday’s video contained two parts: the three dreams and the pastor’s response to the dreams.  The three dreams confirm what I believe is happening.  However, I don’t endorse the pastor’s response.

He suggests getting more guns, ammo, and food.  I recommend being fully prepared spiritually and being fully led by The Holy Spirit.  FATHER has given me the phrase “Now is the time” a number of times beginning on September 1, 2011.  We have had at least nine years to prepare for economic chaos.

Later HE told me to write specifically concerning Agape Love and I have continued writing about the various facets (of which are infinite) and that has been the overall focus since.

We must change, it is that simple.  To recap what was written yesterday, Jesus spoke:

14 “Yet through it all, this joyful assurance of the realm of Heaven’s kingdom will be proclaimed all over the world, providing every nation with a demonstration of the reality of God. And after this the end of this age will arrive.”

Who do you think will demonstrate this reality?  It will be those of us who have matured and are being led by The Holy Spirit.  FATHER will protect and guide us so that we can fulfill our mandate.

As I wrote yesterday:

FATHER has given us ample time to prepare for the chaos ahead.  The Remnant has been focused on such preparation for being Spiritually prepared is of the utmost importance.  You and I have been selected for this time so be of good courage.  FATHER wrote our specific “books” before we were formed, to be equipped for the chaos ahead so embrace this time and continue pressing in.

Jesus further spoke in Matthew chapter 24:

27 The appearing of the Son of Man will burst forth with the brightness of a lightning strike that shines from one end of the sky to the other, illuminating the earth. 28 How do birds of prey know where the dead body is? They just know instinctively, and so you will know when I appear.”

29 “Then immediately this is what will take place: ‘The sun will be darkened and the moon give no light. The stars will fall from the sky and all the cosmic powers will be shaken.’ 30 Then the sign announcing the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn over him. And they will see the Son of Man appearing in the clouds of heaven, revealed with mighty power, great splendor, and glory. 31 And he will send his messengers with the loud blast of the trumpet, and with a great voice they will gather his beloved chosen ones by the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other!”

We are to be the light people see and we are to gather saints through ministry as we operate in His power and authority.  The sun is bright but Heaven’s light is brighter.

Don’t be moved by an opinion attached to a prophetic word, dream, or vision.  We are to discern the Truth even when it is surrounded by men’s soulish opinions.  Let us focus on the Spiritual and discard the chaff.  The best way to eliminate an enemy is through conversion, not elimination.  Jesus packed no spears or knives and chastised Peter when he used his sword.  Selah!

Brace Yourself

Wednesday, July 8th, 2020

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 24:

4 Jesus answered, “At that time deception will run rampant. So beware that you are not fooled! 5 For many will appear on the scene claiming my authority or saying about themselves, ‘I am God’s Anointed,’ and they will lead many astray.

6 “You will hear of wars nearby and revolutions on every side, with more rumors of wars to come. Don’t panic or give in to your fears, for the breaking apart of the world’s systems is destined to happen. But it won’t yet be the end; it will still be unfolding.

7 “Nations will go to war against each other and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be terrible earthquakes—seismic events of epic proportion, horrible epidemics and famines in place after place. 8 This is how the first contractions and birth pains of the new age will begin!”

9 “You can expect to be persecuted, even killed; for you will be hated by all the nations because of your Love for Me. 10 Then many will stop following me and fall away, and they will betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many lying prophets will arise, deceiving multitudes and leading them away from the path of truth. 12 There will be such an increase of sin and lawlessness that those whose hearts once burned with passion for God and others will grow cold. 13 But keep your hope to the end and you will experience Life and deliverance.

14 “Yet through it all, this joyful assurance of the realm of Heaven’s kingdom will be proclaimed all over the world, providing every nation with a demonstration of the reality of God. And after this the end of this age will arrive.”

FATHER has given us ample time to prepare for the chaos ahead.  The Remnant has been focused on such preparation for being Spiritually prepared is of the utmost importance.  You and I have been selected for this time so be of good courage.  FATHER wrote our specific “books” before we were formed, to be equipped for the chaos ahead so embrace this time and continue pressing in.

Ponder every Word Jesus spoke in the above passage.

There will be those around you who will need to be comforted and this is where the Agape Love in your heart must express Itself.  They will be looking to you for guidance and of course you will be guided by The Holy Spirit as we deal with the fullness of the chaos ahead… however it plays out.

Over forty days ago, my wife had the encounter with the spirit of deception and now this spirit is being fully revealed for all to see.  Some will continue in their blindness and will disregard the Truth because they have too much invested in the lies.  Their carnal minds will continue to lead them into utter destruction. Do not be surprised by their level of blindness.

The following 15 minute video was sent to me by a beloved brother.  It is up to each of us to discern its applicability to our specific lives.  Within it are several recommendations for preparation.  As some of you will recall, I have been a proponent of silver coins (and gold for those who have the means) for years.  It matters not to me what the current cost is since I believe hyper-inflation will occur sometime in the future.  All physical preparations are temporal in nature so our primary focus should remain on the Spiritual.

Three Prophetic Dreams from Pastor Dana

True Family

Tuesday, July 7th, 2020

Mark spoke by The Holy Spirit in chapter 3:

31 Then Jesus’ mother and his brothers came and stood outside and sent a message to him, asking that he come out and speak with them. 32 When the crowd sitting around Jesus heard this, they spoke up, and said to him, “Jesus, your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.”

33 He answered them saying, “Who is my true mother and my true brothers?” 34 Then looking in the eyes of those who were sitting in a circle around him, he said, “Here are my true family members. 35 For whoever does the will of God is my brother, my sister, and my mother!

A true family will live in unity and that unity can only be achieved if everyone is in one accord.  When you and I submit to FATHER’S Perfect Will, we are family thus you are my true brothers and sisters.  We can fellowship and share our deepest thoughts and revelation with each other.  We can be open and vulnerable for we have no concern of being manipulated or enslaved.

If I have a natural brother who worships idols, the only relationship I can truly have is to minister to him by showing him the Love of Christ.  However, we cannot have true fellowship for he is blinded to the true Spiritual.  He will seek out the natural and carnal for satisfaction whereas I focus on the Spiritual and walk in joy.  His happiness is fleeting whereas my joy is eternal.

It is also written by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 2:

42 Every believer was faithfully devoted to following the teachings of the apostles. Their hearts were mutually linked to one another, sharing communion and coming together regularly for prayer. 43 A deep sense of holy awe swept over everyone, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. 44 All the believers were in fellowship as one body, and they shared with one another whatever they had. 45 Out of generosity they even sold their assets to distribute the proceeds to those who were in need among them. 46 Daily they met together in the temple courts and in one another’s homes to celebrate communion. They shared meals together with joyful hearts and tender humility. 47 They were continually filled with praises to God, enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord kept adding to their number daily those who were coming to life.

When we are submitting and being led by The Holy Spirit, our hearts are linked to each other.  We then desire to meet the needs of others because we know their motives which are pure.  We have no problem in being generous to those who will not abuse our willingness to give.

Do we simply discard our natural family?  Of course not, we simply continue to minister Agape Love to them as well as offer up prayers on their behalf.  We are not to promote division and separation even though it may occur because of their actions.  FATHER is in the restoration business and so are we.

There are times we must distance ourselves from loved ones so that FATHER’S judgment can be applied without interference.  During these times we should intercede on their behalf but not interfere.  It can be difficult because you simply want the best in their lives but you must allow righteous judgment to come forth.  Otherwise, you delay the inevitable which can actually be worse if delayed.

When I call you my beloved brother or sister, I mean it.  It is not flattery rather it is a term of endearment.  If you and I are in one accord, we are true brothers and sisters and can support each other through the trials we each face.  We can openly share revelation and support each other’s growth.  Isn’t this what a true family in one accord does?

A Warning About Signs

Monday, July 6th, 2020

In Matthew chapter 12, Jesus spoke:

38 Then a few Jewish scholars and Pharisees spoke up and said, “Teacher, why don’t you perform a miraculous sign for us.”

39 Jesus replied, “Only evil people who are unfaithful to God would demand a sign. There will be no sign given to you except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For just like Jonah was in the belly of the huge sea creature for three days and three nights, so the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights. 41 The people of Nineveh will also rise up on the day of judgment to accuse and condemn this generation.  For they all repented when they heard the preaching of Jonah, yet you have refused to repent. And there is one greater than Jonah who is preaching to you today! 42 Even the Queen of Sheba will rise up on the day of judgment to accuse and condemn this generation for its unbelief! She journeyed from a far and distant land just to hear the wisdom of King Solomon. Yet now there is one greater than Solomon speaking to you, and you still refuse to listen.”

Interestingly enough, some highly intelligent people asked Jesus for a sign.  This method of “revelation” has not changed for those who are not purposefully led by The Holy Spirit.  In Deuteronomy chapter 33, it is written by The Holy Spirit:

8 Moses said this about the tribe of Levi:

“O LORD, you have given your Thummim and Urim—the sacred lots—

to your faithful servants the Levites.”

Those two stones were given as a means to inquire of THE LORD since the Holy Spirit had not been given to reside on the inside of the priest.  When the leader would inquire, one of the stones would glow and provide a yes/no answer.  They were oriented toward receiving an external sign to confirm FATHER’S Will.  This is still being done today by believers because they have been led to believe that this is FATHER’S way.  It is not!

“If this happens then I will know FATHER has confirmed my question (or request).”  We are not to be led by signs and Jesus was quite clear to the scholars and Pharisees of the ramifications of being led by signs.  If you persist in being led by signs, the adversary will oblige you and lead you off track in a very subtle fashion.

It matters not who has instructed you to be guided by “signs” or other mechanisms for you will be misled in your walk.  At some point, you will wake up to find yourself in dire straits and wonder how you got there.  I have a friend who nearly lost everything because of such teaching and instruction.

We are to be led by The Holy Spirit and not by some methodology that bypasses The Holy Spirit’s ministry.  The soul wants a formula to live by and seeks to be satisfied by such means.  We must not allow ourselves to be misdirected by apparent success of those methods used by what appears to be intelligent people who are well versed in Scripture.  The Old Covenant means to receiving an answer is no longer applicable since The Holy Spirit has been given to us.  Let this be your warning to set aside any external method to receive Spiritual guidance.
