The Best Of Times

Monday, June 17th, 2019

The Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1 John chapter 5:

1 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.

2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments.

3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.

4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

You only have to look around and see the death and destruction inherent in those who do not Love and follow Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Those who have greed as their god spend their waking hours pursuing money and power at the expense of anyone who gets in their way.  Others’ selfishness ends up hurting the very people who seek their wellbeing.  Without unconditional Love, there is no viable future.  Love overcomes the world of sin and lawlessness because our faith trusts in FATHER’S Divine intervention.

I recently posted a prophetess’ word concerning America’s impending judgment.  FATHER has been longsuffering with the U.S. and its decline toward an immoral and destructive state, especially in the area of abortion.  Everyone focuses on unwanted pregnancy and women’s rights to their own body.  How come no one focuses on abstinence before marriage?  The lust between an unmarried man and woman is now a foregone conclusion and it is as though they think FATHER is unaware of their fornication in the first place.

Do you think FATHER is unaware of the shenanigans in the financial markets by lawless financial institutions who steal from you and me by their financial engineering?  Do you think FATHER is unaware of the graft and corruption known as “the swamp” in Washington D.C.?  Do you think the “financial elite” will not receive judgment for their manipulation of governments around the world?

The remnant of THE LORD has been being prepared for the time of judgment when the harvest of the wheat is at hand.  The tares will be plucked up, removed, and burned.  This judgment will come by HIS fiery Word spoken by the mature Sons and Daughters.  It will be done in dramatic corrective Agape Love.

How did Jesus react to misuse and abuse of something FATHER ordained?  Matthew wrote by THE SPIRIT in chapter 21:

12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.

13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’ ”

14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.

The moneychangers suffered judgment yet the blind and lame received grace and mercy and were healed… without a dove.  There were those who were lawful among those who were lawless.  The lawless suffered loss while the lawful received restoration.

We need to be of good courage and continue in HIS Word so that we are prepared no matter what form of judgment comes forth in the world.  We must keep our lamps trimmed and consciously be led by The Holy Spirit in preparation for the Groom’s arrival.  For the lawless it will be the worst of times, but for those who walk in Agape Love, it will be the best of times.

Your Are Of Great Value

Friday, June 14th, 2019

Each of us is of great value to Our Heavenly Father.  FATHER gave HIS Son of indescribable value for us individually because of HIS Love.  How can we establish a finite value on our existence when considering this Truth?

If we were of no value, there would have been no need for Jesus’ sacrifice nor would we need the Scripture to direct our paths.  We must not forget this reality and we should embrace the Truths which describe and encourage us to walk according to FATHER’S Love plan.

We should value others in the same manner FATHER values us for they are HIS workmanship as well.  Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 6:

27 “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.

And:

35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.

36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.

Would you expect FATHER to treat HIS creation any differently?  HE gives us every opportunity to accept HIS Love.  HE has given us the choice to accept The Way or walk according to our own lusts but we must accept the results of our choice.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 5:

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’

44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

If we Love our neighbor and Love our enemies then who have been excluded?  No one.  If we are to Love, then we are meant to be Loved thus we all are of great value to FATHER.  Do not get down on yourself and think you are not Loved.  Our Heavenly Father Love you and the mature Sons and Daughters Love you as well.  You are not alone!  Those who don’t Love you are walking in the darkness of their ways.

Prophecy – Tic Tac Woe 6-5-2019 Lois Vogel-Sharp

Thursday, June 13th, 2019

The following is a prophecy which warns us of an impending economic collapse.  Will it occur, how will it occur, and when will it occur are all questions to be answered by The Holy Spirit in us.  Love is the answer to the fear that will grip the world when their trust in the world’s ways evaporates before their very eyes.

Mathematically speaking, there is no solution to the debt that currently exists throughout the world… it is clearly bankrupt in the strictest terms.  I warned those who would listen for ten years from 2006 to 2016 (849 posts) then FATHER had me focus solely on the revelation of Love.  Love will sustain us no matter what occurs in this world.  The greater the revelation of Love, the greater the peace we will walk in when adversity comes.

If this prophetic word does not witness with you, no worries, just set it aside.

FATHER’S Love Plan Part 10

Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

In the garden, FATHER established boundaries with Adam and Eve for their protection.  In Genesis chapter 2 it is written by THE SPIRIT:

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.”

The boundary HE established was for their own benefit and protection for this is the motivation of Love.  All they had to do was to stay within the boundary of HIS command and trust HIS integrity.  When we question FATHER’S Word and Love’s motives, we allow the poison of unbelief to enter in and cause death and destruction to take us down another path contrary to The Way.

When man chooses to cross the boundaries that Love establishes there are consequences.  Within those boundaries are peace and safety but outside those boundaries are anxiety and scarcity.  Why venture outside the boundary FATHER has established?  All it does is confirm the unbelief in your heart.

Paul started out with unbelief in his heart concerning Jesus being the Messiah.  He was extremely intelligent and well educated but that did not translate into revelation and understanding.  In 1 Timothy chapter 1, HE wrote by THE SPIRIT:

12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry,

13 although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

14 And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.

16 However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.

17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

This well-educated man came to the realization of his condition of unbelief and even realized that he was a “chief sinner” but by FATHER’S mercy and grace, Love prevailed.  Once his eyes were opened, Paul changed and became obedient to Love’s plan.  He had a new set of boundaries to live by and was willing to endure any manmade adversity to fulfill his part of the Love plan.

Proverbs directs us to live in certain boundaries.  If we choose to leave those boundaries Wisdom has established, we will surely experience hardship.  We must not allow the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, or pride of life to draw us away from the boundaries established by FATHER.

In Hebrew chapter 3, it is written by THE SPIRIT:

12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;

13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end,

15 while it is said:

​“Today, if you will hear His voice,

​​Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

Once you depart from the boundary of Love, your heart is subject to becoming an “evil heart of unbelief”.  These writings are to encourage you to remain within the boundaries of Love and pursue the fruit thereof.  There are acts of Love we are encouraged to pursue so let us not resist what FATHER is urging us to do.  Those acts result in seeds being planted allowing us to produce a greater harvest.  If we sow sparingly, we reap sparingly.  If we sow within the boundaries FATHER has established, we will maximize our harvest.

FATHER’S Love Plan Part 9

Tuesday, June 11th, 2019

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 8:

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written:

​​“For Your sake we are killed all day long;

​​We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Love promotes all aspects of life and restoration.  As Paul said in the above passage, nothing shall be able to separate us from FATHER’S Love.  When we pursue Love, in essence we are pursuing life, health, blessing, relationships, peace, and all other aspects of the Kingdom.  Can there be a greater priority than pursuing the revelation of Love?

There is nothing and no one can separate us from the Love of Christ.  This Love is greater than the sum of all men’s sins and lawlessness since the beginning of the world.  Even the most lawless men are not exempt from this Love thus they will ultimately bow their knees and confess with their tongues “Jesus is Lord”.

Paul (who was Saul) had been the number one enemy of the believers and had officiated Stephen’s stoning and death but he received grace and mercy from Our Heavenly Father and was acquitted of all of his crimes against believers.  He became a new creation and his mind was transformed which enabled him to state in Acts chapter 20;

26 Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men.

Love totally exonerated him of all wrongdoing and be assured that your past sins and lawless acts have been wiped clean from your slate as well so quit beating yourself up because of your past.

When Jesus was confronted with the situation of a woman caught in adultery, how did He respond?  In John chapter 8 Jesus dealt with the situation by Love:

7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up[fn] and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.

9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience,[fn] went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours?[fn] Has no one condemned you?”

11 She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Love does not condemn or criticize but seeks to restore and expose men to the light and remove darkness from their midst.  The problems we face on a daily basis are no match for the light expressed through FATHER’S Love for us.  Our past is no match when the radiant light of FATHER’S Love has overtaken the darkness.  Let our gratitude be expressed daily for this gift of Love given to all of mankind.  What a time to be alive!

FATHER’S Love Plan Part 8

Monday, June 10th, 2019

FATHER formed each of us in the womb by HIS Divine Intent of Love and out of HIS goodness.  We are meant to have fellowship with HIM once we have discovered HIS Love plan.

Was there anyone formed in the womb by accident?  Absolutely not, thus we should look at everyone with the same Agape Love knowing that they are at different stages of revelation, even if it appears to be zero.

We all started out as vessels of dishonor but many have received the seed of FATHER’S Love plan and began to see HIS Divine Intent have been transformed by the renewing of the mind.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 9:

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.

HIS plan includes both forming us in the womb and providing for us as we grow and mature to do good works and promote HIS Love plan to others.  We are to perpetuate HIS Love plan to others and encourage them to embrace the Wisdom of such a plan.

The adversary would like to thwart this plan but his sensual wisdom is no match for FATHER’S superior Wisdom which has at Its core, the full revelation and intent of FATHER’S Love.  Men who darkened hearts need to have an encounter with those who have the Light to expose the Truth to them so that they have the choice to be enlightened or remain in darkness as vessels of dishonor for Love does not impose Itself on others.  Our choice is given to us in order that Love remains pure without coercion. 

What a privilege it is to have this plan revealed so that we can expand FATHER’S Kingdom on earth and know that HE will provide everything we need in order to fulfill HIS plan.  Paul further wrote:

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.

As we see the source of our provision, we become extremely thankful for everything FATHER does on our behalf.  We are no longer surprised at our good fortune and come to expect the unexpected in man’s eyes.  We are grateful to be in the flow of FATHER’S Love toward mankind.

FATHER’S Love Plan Part 7

Sunday, June 9th, 2019

Peter wrote by THE SPIRIT in his first epistle chapter 1:

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 

4to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you

5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Even though our sinful and lawless past deserves no inheritance, FATHER has reserved an inheritance for you and me.  HIS Love is greater than the summation of all our past failures and swallows up death on our behalf.  What is left?  The fullness of life, Love, peace, and joy as an inheritance because of HIS infinite and unconditional Love.  Peter continued:

22 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, 

23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, 

24 because

​“All flesh is as grass,

​​And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.

​​The grass withers,

​​And its flower falls away,

25 ​​But the word of the LORD endures forever.”

​Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.

The incorruptible seed has been planted in us and brings forth purification of our souls.  HIS Love has a purifying effect as we obey the Truth through The Holy Spirit. It is a wonder that defies human understanding and is contrary to man’s logic and reasoning.

HIS Seed overtakes our sinful past and HIS incorruption is greater than our corruption in all aspects.  This is why we must not allow the past to influence today’s decisions or thinking.  We truly are HIS new creation.  What a beautiful Love plan which restores us to Our Heavenly Father!

We can see at the center of HIS Divine Intent is HIS Love plan.  There is no mention of the necessity of various acts by us which are required for us to enter into this state of incorruption except to obey HIS Truth. Who would not want to accept this plan?

There is not a long list of performance requirements and tests to enter into HIS Love plan.  The plan is simple and straightforward so that all men and women can walk according to HIS plan.  HE did not discriminate against anyone but included all of us no matter what our human capacity.

Love always wins.  There is nothing insurmountable keeping us from this incorruption Peter has pointed out.  When Jesus was resurrected from the dead, He sealed the Love plan’s success so that there is no weakness of failure attributable to FATHER’S Plan.  HIS plan has been revealed so let us fully embrace it and focus our attention of the greatest aspect of FATHER’S Divine Intent- Love.

A Prayer For Our Partners

Saturday, June 8th, 2019

FATHER,

I thank YOU for those YOU have led to give unto this ministry.  I ask YOU to bless the seed sown into this ministry and provide a generous harvest to the Brothers and Sisters who have planted their financial seed.  I trust YOUR Word stating “he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” and “So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”  Show these cheerful givers YOUR desire to bless them and reveal YOURSELF to them as these blessings arrive.  Let their harvest be  bountiful with good fruit.  I ask this in Jesus’ Name.  Amen!

FATHER’S Love Plan Part 6

Friday, June 7th, 2019

Paul wrote in Romans chapter 5:

6 While we were still helpless [powerless to provide for our salvation] (with utterly no way of escape), at the right time Christ died [as a substitute] for the ungodly.

7 Now it is an extraordinary thing for one to willingly give his life even for an upright man, though perhaps for a good man [one who is noble and selfless and worthy] someone might even dare to die.

8 But God clearly shows and proves His own great love for us, by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

9 Therefore, since we have now been justified [declared free of the guilt of sin] by His blood, [how much more certain is it that] we will be saved from the wrath of God through Him.

10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, it is much more certain, having been reconciled, that we will be saved

[from the consequences of sin]

by His life [that is, we will be saved because Christ lives today].

11 Not only that, but we also rejoice in God [rejoicing in His love and perfection] through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received and enjoy our reconciliation [with God].  AMPL

What a plan!  When did Love first arrive?  In the beginning for Love initiated The Word which expresses the Divine Intent of FATHER.  Wisdom which is the proper application of understanding is based on FATHER’S Divine Intent thus wisdom expresses HIS Love toward us.  This is why it is so important for us to study the Book of Proverbs as a fundamental, practical guide to living.

Satan was successful in the Garden but then he failed in the wilderness.  He can no longer tempt us with selfishness and greed.  Love designed the plan of redemption and Our Lord Jesus Christ carried it out.  Men wanted the environment to change based on their understanding of prophecy but FATHER was and is focused on the internal environments of men’s hearts.

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 6:

14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?

15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?

16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

​​“I will dwell in them

​​And walk among them.

​​I will be their God,

​​And they shall be My people.”

Being new creations, we are urged to no longer follow the path of those who walk in lawlessness and darkness.  Jesus has provided us “The Way” and when we purpose to walk this particular path, FATHER is able to direct us without hindrance for HE dwells in us.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Hebrews chapter 13:

5 Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you

[assuredly not]

!”

6 So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently say,

“The Lord is my Helper [in time of need], I will not be afraid.

What will man do to me?”  AMPL

Love and peace which are beyond measure flood our souls as we are assured of FATHER’S presence in our lives.  We are no longer on our own as we have the Creator of Heaven and earth there to help us in time of need.  We rely on HIS Wisdom and understanding in all matters.  We don’t have to wring our hands and be anxious anymore because Our Heavenly Father is always looking out for our best interest well beyond our understanding and comprehension.  We are right in the middle of HIS big Love plan.  Let our gratitude be expressed in praise as we acknowledge HIS unending Love for us.

FATHER’S Love Plan Part 5

Thursday, June 6th, 2019

The righteousness of Christ has been transferred to you and me.  Our past sins and lawlessness have been fully expunged and removed thus allowing us to live in total peace.  Our life records have been totally cleansed of wrongdoing and we no longer need to concern ourselves with our past.  Let us bury the past and never dig it up again!  Oh what a blessing it is to walk in the righteousness of Christ!

There are those who wish to live in the past because they have no purpose today.  We, on the other hand, have FATHER’S purpose before us and look forward to what the day brings.  We can embrace each task and look to be a blessing in all we set our hand to do.

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 5:

1 Therefore, since we have been justified [that is, acquitted of sin, declared blameless before God] by faith, [let us grasp the fact that] we have peace with God [and the joy of reconciliation with Him] through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed).  AMPL

I write these words to you daily with great joy and trust they are having a positive impact on your life.  I know that these words promote peace in my life and I believe that they have the same impact on you. 

I used to be enamored with prophecies as though their fulfillment would bring forth a major change on the earth and its effect on me.  Little did I know that the revelation of Agape Love was what I was really seeking in my life.  Its impact on my life has fulfilled that deep-seated need and now I walk in complete peace knowing that FATHER has my best interest at heart in my daily walk.

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1 Corinthians chapter 13:

1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.

An angel is a messenger of FATHER who is meant to convey The Word to a specific targeted audience.  Prophets speak forth an expectation of hope or warnings to people.  Many of us grew up in the “faith” movement in the 1970’s yet Love was not at the forefront of their teaching.  Many were taught to sacrifice themselves or their possessions for the Gospel’s sake yet the revelation of Love was missing from such teaching.  Their sacrifices were to no avail thus it profited them nothing.

These three simple verses summarize a warning we should heed.  There are many prophecies and “prophetic” works which stir up the brethren as though their result will bring forth ultimate peace on earth yet the revelation of Love is missing in their words and acts.  FATHER isn’t waiting on certain men’s prophetic works to act.  HE is not subject to words created by man.  It is just the opposite, man is subject to FATHER’S Divine Intent and there is no real battle dependent on what man thinks is needed to convince FATHER to act. 

FATHER has a Love plan and as we discover and embrace that plan, we are bringing Heaven to earth.  As we walk in Agape Love, our words and acts will remain beyond prophecies and any other teachings:

8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.

9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part;

10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away.

Men seek out knowledge and prophecies at the expense of pursuing the revelation of Love.  Am I against gaining knowledge?  No, I have sought out knowledge myself yet it did not change me.  Am I against prophecies and prophetic works?  No, I have done more than my share of “prophetic “ works and acts here in the U.S. and in Europe yet those trips did not change me and increase peace in my life.  I was seeing in the mirror dimly:

11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.

12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.

13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.

I was missing the point expressed in the above verses.  FATHER allowed me to experience the “childish” things so that I could relate to the above passage and share the reality of seeing in a mirror dimly.  Out of Love, I continue to stress the importance of correcting our walk so that we can and will become mature Sons and Daughters of Our Heavenly Father.  HE has a Love plan which exceeds any other plan men may preach or prophesy.  When we fully embrace HIS Love plan, we will walk in complete peace no matter what is prophesied and comes to pass.  Instead of seeking the “partial”, let us seek the “perfect”.
