Walking In Truth: Part 9

Wednesday, August 17th, 2022

Truth will protect you when then the lies manifest themselves to harm you and me.

It is vital that we keep Psalm 91 before us in these times.  Truth abides under the Shadow of The Almighty! This is one reason FATHER had me include it in our new RENEW app.

The Holy Spirit recorded in Psalms chapter 91:

1  When you sit enthroned under the Shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High.

2 He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great confidence.

3 He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy, and He will protect you from false accusation and any deadly curse.

4 His Massive Arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under His Covering of Majesty and hide. His Arms of faithfulness are a Shield keeping you from harm.

5 You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you.

6 Don’t fear a thing! Whether by night or by day, demonic danger will not trouble you, nor will the powers of evil launched against you.

7 Even in a time of disaster, with thousands and thousands being killed, you will remain unscathed and unharmed.

8 you will be a spectator as the wicked perish in judgment, for they will be paid back for what they have done!

9-10  When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High, our Secret Hiding Place, we will always be shielded from harm. How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?

11 God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go, defending you from all harm.

12 If you walk into a trap, they’ll be there for you and keep you from stumbling.

13 You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness, trampling every one of them beneath your feet!

14 For here is what the Lord has spoken to me: “Because you have delighted in Me as My great Lover, I will greatly protect you. I will set you in a high place, safe and secure before My Face.

15 I will answer your cry for help every time you pray, and you will find and feel My Presence even in your time of pressure and trouble. I will be your glorious Hero and give you a feast.

16 You will be satisfied with a full life and with all that I do for you. For you will enjoy the fullness of My salvation!”

Renew Your Mind App

Tuesday, August 16th, 2022

We have been working on an app for you to be able to listen/read Scriptures by topic. How committed are Believers in renewing their minds? We will get an idea once we roll out this application which began development at the beginning of the year. We currently have the “beta” version operational and available on a limited basis. If you are interested in using this initial release, email me at unity153@gmail.com and I will set you up with a userid and password.

I have been listening to these topics on my phone, tablet, and PC. The current issue with the phone is if you have spotty Internet while you are driving, it will stop playing. We are working on a solution to overcome this issue. This app is platform neutral which means you don’t have to buy a specific device to use it.

Each topic has several verses that cycle through. In addition, you can “autoplay” multiple topics in the order you choose. When I am resting, I use this feature to play Love then Faith, then Healing. I can change these options any time based on what I need.

Think about it… this simply app will allow people all over the world to listen and/or read specific Scriptures based on need. Renewing the mind is all about immersion. The opposition uses immersion by constantly bombarding us with their narrative. Isn’t it time to be immersed in the Truth?

The following are a couple of screenshots from a smartphone to provide you some perspective:

This is another way we can spread the Good News around the world… without anyone’s opinion. We will be adding topics as The Holy Spirit directs us.

Walking In Truth: Part 8

Claiming ignorance of the Truth will not keep a person from judgment.  The person will be unable to deny Truth when the time of judgment arrives.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 2:

1No matter who you are, before you judge the wickedness of others, you had better remember this: you are also without excuse, for you too are guilty of the same kind of things! When you judge others, and then do the same things they do, you condemn yourself.

2 We know that God’s judgment falls upon those who practice these things. God is always right, because He has all the facts.

3 And no matter who you think you are, when you judge others who do these things and then do the same things yourself, what makes you think that you will escape God’s judgment?

Neither you nor I know all the facts concerning others, only FATHER.  We must not allow ourselves to make a judgment about others from our own perspective or bias.  Let FATHER do all the judging and administering the results.

4 Do the riches of His extraordinary kindness make you take Him for granted and despise Him? Haven’t you experienced how kind and understanding He has been to you? Don’t mistake His tolerance for acceptance. Do you realize that all the wealth of His extravagant kindness is meant to melt your heart and lead you into repentance?

5 But because of your calloused heart and refusal to change direction, you are piling up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed.

6 For: He will give to each one in return for what he has done.

It is vital that I repent for any and all missteps in my walk… daily if need be.  I must keep my heart sensitive to The Holy Spirit in all areas and not become calloused in any way.  A sensitive heart is willing to change and remove anything that hinders one from hearing and being corrected by FATHER.

7 For those living in constant goodness and doing what pleases Him, seeking an unfading glory and honor and imperishable virtue, will experience Eternal life.

8 But those governed by selfishness and self-promotion, whose hearts are unresponsive to God’s Truth and would rather embrace unrighteousness, will experience the fullness of wrath.

It is our decision to do what is pleasing to FATHER or embrace unrighteousness.  HE will not force us to carry out HIS wishes, we are fully accountable.

9 Anyone who does evil can expect tribulation and distress—to the Jew first and also to the non-Jew.

10 But when we do what pleases God, we can expect unfading glory, true honor, and a continual peace—to the Jew first and also to the non-Jew,

11 for God sees us all without partiality.

12 When people who have never been exposed to the laws of Moses commit sin, they will still perish for what they do. And those who are under the law of Moses and fail to obey it are condemned by the law.

13 For it’s not merely knowing the law that makes you right with God, but doing all that the law says that will cause God to pronounce you innocent.

14 For example, whenever people who don’t possess the law as their birthright commit sin, it still confirms that a “law” is present in their conscience. For when they instinctively do what the law requires, that becomes a “law” to govern them, even though they don’t have Mosaic law.

15 It demonstrates that the requirements of the law are woven into their hearts. They know what is right and wrong, for their conscience validates this “law” in their heart. Their thoughts correct them in one instance and commend them in another.

There is no plausible deniability for anyone breaking the Law.  Deep down inside men’s hearts, they know what is right and wrong and cannot plead ignorance.

16 So this judgment will be revealed on the day when God, through Jesus the Messiah, judges the hidden secrets of people’s hearts. And their response to the Gospel I preach will be the standard of judgment used in that day.

Paul preached the Gospel of Love and grace.  However, there are consequences to defying the Laws FATHER established for all of mankind.  Paul warns us of the ramifications of persisting in rejecting what is right.  No man will be able to stand before judgment and claim ignorance of the Truth.  All of creation cries out and reveals Truth and life for our observation.

How will the Truth be revealed?  In many ways but one such way will be through supernatural healings which will require mankind to deal with their own sin nature.

Once you see pure light, any other light can be easily detected of its nature.  Once a known paralytic is healed, men will become aware of their sinful nature and it will no longer be hidden in the recesses of their hearts.

Jesus expect you and me to do greater things than what is recorded in the Gospels and He expressed this expectation in Mark chapter 16:

14   Then Jesus appeared before the eleven apostles as they were eating a meal. He corrected them for having such hard, unbelieving hearts because they did not believe those who saw Him after his resurrection.

15 And He said to them, “As you go into all the world, preach openly the Wonderful News of the Gospel to the entire human race!

16 Whoever believes the Good News and is baptized will be saved, and whoever does not believe the Good News will be condemned.

17 And these miracle signs will accompany those who believe: They will drive out demons in the power of My Name. They will speak in tongues.

18 They will be supernaturally protected from snakes and from drinking anything poisonous. And they will lay hands on the sick and heal them.”

19 After saying these things, Jesus was lifted up into Heaven and sat down at the place of honor at the Right Hand of God!

20 And the apostles went out announcing the good news everywhere, as the Lord Himself consistently worked with them, validating the message they preached with miracle-signs that accompanied them!

This message was not only for the apostles at that time, but we are to walk in the same manner.  Jesus is Our Example as depicted in The Chosen.

The message of episode 6 is all about Jesus’ indescribable compassion:

Walking In Truth: Part 6

Saturday, August 13th, 2022

The Truth reveals lies and there is no one who can claim plausible deniability for their actions or inactions.

Plausible deniability is the ability to deny any involvement in illegal or unethical activities, because there is no clear evidence to prove involvement.

Men hide behind the inability of others to see their nefarious deeds and intent.  However this does not work with Our Heavenly Father Who knows the secrets within the hearts of all men.  Nothing is hidden from HIM!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 3:

10And the Scriptures agree, for it is written: There is no one who always does what is right, no, not even one!

11 There is no one with true spiritual insight, and there is no one who seeks after God alone.

12 All have deliberately wandered from God’s ways. All have become depraved and unfit. Kindness has disappeared from them all, not even one is good.

13 Their words release a stench, like the smell of death—foul and filthy! Deceitful lies roll off their tongues. The venom of a viper drips from their lips.

14 Bitter profanity flows from their mouths, only meant to cut and harm.

15 They are infatuated with violence and murder.

16 They release ruin and misery wherever they go.

17 They never experience the path of peace.

18 They shut their eyes to the awe-inspiring God!

19 Now, we realize that everything the law says is addressed to those who are under its authority. This is for two reasons: So that every excuse will be silenced, with no boasting of innocence. And so that the entire world will be held accountable to God’s standards.

20 For by the merit of observing the law no one earns the status of being declared righteous before God, for it is the law that fully exposes and unmasks the reality of sin.

Every day there is another act of lawlessness being committed by those at the highest levels of power.  They do this to promote their agenda to increase their power and control.  It is clear that there are people behind the scenes who have been born by the father of lies to carry out his agenda of stealing, killing, and destroying.  However, this is only temporary in nature for FATHER always has the last move.  In the meantime, people’s hearts are being revealed and the Righteous Ones continue in their preparation to turn this world upside down.

In Mark chapter 4, Jesus spoke:

21  He also gave them this parable: “No one lights a lamp only to place it under a basket or under the bed. It is meant to be placed on a lampstand.

22 For there is nothing that is hidden that won’t be disclosed, and there is no secret that won’t be brought out into the light!

23 If you understand what I’m saying, you need to respond!”

24 Then He said to them, “Be diligent to understand the meaning behind everything you hear, for as you do, more understanding will be given to you. And according to the depth of your longing to understand, much more will be added to you.

25 For those who listen with open hearts will receive more revelation. But those who don’t listen with open hearts will lose what little they think they have!”

To whom will FATHER reveal the hidden secrets?  HE will reveal them to the mature Sons and Daughters.  They will operate in the Gifts of The Holy Spirit as did Jesus.  I expect to be counted among them and I trust you do as well.  It takes a full commitment on our part and we must be diligent to understand and change according to the deeper Truths being revealed to us.  Do you long for greater understanding?  I do!  This is why I press in daily.

It is only the Truth you know that makes you free! Embracing lies puts you into greater slavery.

Jesus spoke in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 13:

11  Jesus explained, “You’ve been given the intimate experience of insight into the hidden Truths and mysteries of the realm of Heaven’s Kingdom, but they have not.

12 For everyone who listens with an open heart will receive progressively more revelation (of Truth) until he has more than enough. But those who don’t listen with an open, teachable heart, even the understanding that they think they have will be taken from them.

If you don’t pursue Truth with an open heart, you will end up losing what little you had.  Why?  It is an ongoing war of Truth versus lies and the war occurs in your mind.

There are certain men I have encountered in the past who appeared to be pursuing Truth yet their minds were closed to consider revelation given to others.  They had formed a bias in their minds and chose to reject revelation that did not line up with their personal theology.  It matters not how much Scripture you have memorized, if your heart is not open to greater and deeper revelation, you will grow cold.  I have seen some verbally abuse others with Scripture verses then classify the abuse as “joking”.

If you embrace and act on the Truth you know, FATHER will give you more Truth to act on.  This is the pathway to maturity as a Son or Daughter of GOD.  A fully mature Son will speak no lies or half-truths but will speak Truth by Love.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2:

8Then the “outlaw” will be openly revealed, and the Lord will overthrow him by the Breath of His Mouth (the Word of GOD) and bring him to an end by the dazzling manifestation of his presence.

9 The presence of the “outlaw” is apparent by the activity of Satan, who uses all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs, spurious wonders,

10 and every form of evil deception in order to deceive those who are perishing because they rejected the Love of the Truth that would lead them to being saved.

11 Because of this, God sends them a powerful delusion that leads them to believe what is false.

12 So then all who found their pleasure in unrighteousness and did not believe the Truth will be judged.

If one rejects the Love of the Truth, he or she will be deceived by the antichrist (aka outlaw).  Those who are deceived will walk in a powerful delusion and believe what is false.  Do you see that happening today?  Those in power are redefining words so that their false, damaging agendas can be promoted.  Those walking in delusion are blindly accepting the lies.  Why?  They are walking in strong delusion even though they think they are the smartest ones in the room

When people do not have an open heart willing to change, there is nothing you can say that will change their mind.  When they fail in their endeavors, they will always blame someone else.

One of the biggest challenges people have is embracing the Truth in the area of Biblical Laws on finances.  Why?  It is contrary to what the world promotes.  FATHER promotes abundance and the world promotes scarcity.

Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 6:

38  Give generously and generous gifts will be given back to you, shaken down to make room for more. Abundant gifts will pour out upon you with such an overflowing measure that it will run over the top! Your measurement of generosity becomes the measurement of your return.”

My wife and I are testimonies of this Truth spoken out of the Mouth of Jesus.  Are you embracing this Truth?  Are you acting on this Truth?  Why do you think FATHER has this ministry direct your giving to the Kids in Need?  This area of giving is pure and unadulterated.  It has no hidden motives and the kids have no idea who we are but are blessed by our outreach.  FATHER knows and frankly that is all that counts.

The Love of the Truth is vital to all areas of our life and these Words of Jesus fully expresses FATHER’S Love toward us.  If you will embrace these Words, your life will improve and you will become a greater blessing to others.  What a testimony!

It is only the Truth you know that makes you free! Embracing lies puts you into greater slavery.

Only “GOD breathed” Truth can originate from the Throne Room of Heaven, not from the minds of men.

Jesus spoke in the Gospel of John in chapter 8:

31  Jesus said to those Jews who believed in him, When you continue to embrace all that I teach, you prove that you are My True followers.

32 For if you embrace the Truth, It will release more freedom into your lives.”

How can we embrace all that Jesus taught if we don’t know His Words and keep them at the forefront in our minds?  The Truth makes me free and there is no reason to return to the old man who was enslaved by the world’s narrative.

Jesus continued as He addressed the Pharisees:

44 “You are the offspring of your father, the devil, and you serve your father very well, passionately carrying out his desires. He’s been a murderer right from the start! He never stood with the One who is the true Prince, for he’s full of nothing but lies—lying is his native tongue. He is a master of deception and the father of lies!

Could Jesus have made it any plainer than what He spoke about the adversary!

45 But I am the True Prince who speaks nothing but the Truth, yet you refuse to believe and you want nothing to do with Me.

We need to live our lives based on a standard of Truth.  Man relies on physical standards for measuring distance, time, volumes, etc.  Moreover we need Truth as the Standard for society to properly function.  Without a standard, men will exploit the unsuspecting.

Wisdom wrote in Proverbs chapter 16:

11  Honest weights and scales are the LORD’s; All the weights in the bag are His work.

Wisdom also wrote in Proverbs chapter 20:

10  Differing weights and differing measures, Both of them are abominable to the LORD.

How would you like to buy necessities with packaging that has been redefined every time you purchase them?  Isn’t that happening with what the world deems “inflation”?

When the U.S. went off the gold standard in 1971, it allowed those in power to print money without any valuable backing.  Once your currency is no longer backed by physical value, you have begun the path of lies and control by others.

This path has allowed the U.S. to manipulate not only the population of the U.S., but the entire world for over five decades.  If you studied the history of money, you would find that this path has been taken over and over with the final results always being the same: the fall of a nation.

Russia and China are in the process of decoupling their economies from the U.S. Dollar and I believe this is why those in power are fighting against them so aggressively.  It is all about power and control.

If you have a genuine one ounce silver coin in your hand, nobody controls it but you.  If you have a U.S. one dollar bill in your hand, its value is not constant but will continue to lose value over time.  Precious metals support Truth whereas fiat currency supports lies.  It is that simple.  As it is written in Proverbs “Differing weights and measures are an abomination to THE LORD”.

How will this all play out?  How long before there is a monetary crisis?  Only FATHER knows for sure, but at least, you have been made aware.  Let those with ears to hear and eyes to see understand what is happening all around us.  This is why it is imperative to move toward full maturity in The Truth!

PS:  Digital currency is the ultimate means of control.  Your money can be “turned off” in an instant if you are not compliant to the latest set of rules issued by those in power.

The Chosen: Episode 5

Wednesday, August 10th, 2022

This episode is all about the wedding feast at Cana where Jesus turned the water into wine.

The following is an excerpt from Art’s book “The Combined Gospels of Love”:

John in his Gospel reveals the incredibly close, mother – son relationship that existed between
Jesus and Mary. Scripture is also telling us that Mary knew very well who her Son was and the
God given abilities His Heavenly Father had bestowed upon Him. Mary tells Jesus, “They have
no wine.” Mary clearly expects Jesus to solve the “wine” problem. However, Jesus chooses to
remind Mary that His, “hour has not yet come,” and asks her, in a very loving manner,
“Woman, whatever am I to do with you?” Mary ignores Jesus, and addresses the servants,
telling them to do “whatever He saith unto you.” It is the last time that any word spoken by
Mary is recorded in Scripture.


This is the first miracle performed by Jesus and is specific to changing water into wine. The
water pots being used to hold the wine, are very interesting, in that John takes the time to
describe the water pots, providing us with very significant details regarding the volume of the
pots and the number of pots involved. It is generally understood that John was hiding a
“mystery” in these measurements. John was using Jesus’ first and last miracles in his Gospel to
reveal the number 153 as representing the “Sons of God.”

In the first miracle there are 9 gallons of water contained in a “firkin,” hence each pot held
either 18 or 27 gallons of water. John, in his Gospel, makes it clear that the pots were not all
the same sizes, “containing two or three firkins apiece.” If, as some Biblical scholars contend,
there were 5 pots containing 3 firkins and 1 pot containing 2 firkins, the total volume of water
changed into wine would have been 153 gallons. The last miracle had the seven disciples
“catching 153 large fish.”(John 21:11).The “8 miracles”(eight is the biblical number of new
beginnings) showcased in John’s Gospel, had the 1st and 8th miracles serve as “bookends,” with
both miracles setting forth the biblical number 153, which represents the “Sons of God.” As a
result, some would contend that the miracle of our Lord changing water into wine is to provide
us with the understanding of the change that will take place in our Lord’s, “Sons of God,” when
our Lord changes our bodies from the mortal ones we are born in, to the immortal bodies in
which we will serve Him throughout eternity.

The above explains why we named our website www.unity153.net

New Book: The Combined Gospels Of Love

Tuesday, August 9th, 2022

Servias Ministries has published this work for Our Beloved Brother. Arthur put all four Gospels in chronological order with appropriate commentary. The work is 279 pages of 8 1/2 x 11 sizing. Each Gospel is in a different color to help the reader differentiate the Gospels when there are multiple accounts to read. Since it required us to print the entire book “in color” the costs were notably higher.

I have read the book and was quite blessed as I read the associated Gospels and their commentary.

The suggested retail is $88.00. Our current cost is $47 per copy. Those who want a copy, simply send some type of contribution to help us cover the cost. If the contribution is different from either of these amounts, add 88 cents (for yellow cover) 87 cents (for red cover) to the contribution which will notify us that this contribution is for a book rather than a normal contribution.

It is all about spreading The Gospel!

Walking In Truth: Part 3

Monday, August 8th, 2022

 Truth is confirmed by Our Heavenly Father to those who have ears to hear and eyes to see.  There are times we will experience supernatural events to confirm the Truth at a personal level.  Don’t forget, praying in Tongues in Itself is supernatural!

Truth comes by The Holy Scriptures and The Holy Spirit.  Both were and are “GOD breathed”.  Only Truth can originate from the Throne Room of Heaven.

Matthew recorded by The Holy Spirit in his Gospel in chapter 17:

1  Six days later Jesus took Peter and the two brothers, Jacob and John, and hiked up a high mountain to be alone.

Jesus knew what was about to take place so He brought three witnesses with Him as prescribed by The Law in Deuteronomy 17:

6  “Whoever is deserving of death shall be put to death on the testimony of two or three witnesses; he shall not be put to death on the testimony of one witness.”

19:15  “One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established.”

The Law addressed crucial matters of Truth to be established by eyewitness accounts.  In this case, Jesus made sure He had three eyewitnesses due to the vital nature of what was about to happen.

2 Then Jesus’ appearance was dramatically altered. A radiant light as bright as the sun poured from His Face. And His clothing became luminescent—dazzling like lightning. He was trans-figured before their very eyes.

How would we respond to such an event?  Could anyone talk us out of what we saw and heard?

3 Then suddenly, Moses and Elijah appeared, and they spoke with Jesus.

4 Peter blurted out, “Lord, it’s so wonderful that we are all here together! If You want, I’ll construct three shrines, one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”

This was a classic Peter response: act now, listen later!  How many of us have been guilty of a similar response?  Regrettably, I have.

5 But while Peter was still speaking, a radiant Cloud composed of light spread over them, enveloping them all. And God’s Voice suddenly spoke from the Cloud, saying, “This is My Dearly loved Son, the constant focus of My Delight. Listen to Him!”

How would we respond to such an event?

6 The three disciples were dazed and terrified by this phenomenon, and they fell facedown to the ground.

7 But Jesus walked over and touched them, saying, “Get up and stop being afraid.”

Jesus saw their fear and reassured them.  Being on the ground with their eyes closed provided no protection anyway.

8 When they finally opened their eyes and looked around, they saw no one else there but Jesus.

9 As they all hiked down the mountain together, Jesus ordered them, “Don’t tell anyone of the Divine Appearance you just witnessed. Wait until the Son of Man is raised from the dead.”

Just after such a wonderful affirming supernatural event, Jesus revealed that He would be raised from the dead yet none of the three were waiting for Him at the tomb.  They were held up in a house, a distance from the tomb.

10 His disciples asked Him, “Why do all the religious scholars insist that Elijah must first appear before the Anointed One comes?”

11 He answered them, “They’re right. Elijah must come first and restore all things. 12 But Elijah has already appeared. And yet they didn’t recognize him, so they did to him whatever they pleased. And the Son of Man is destined to suffer the same abuse as what they did to him.”

13 Then the disciples realized that Jesus was referring to John the Baptizer all along.

John the Baptist spoke the Truth and prepared the Way but many were unable to hear him for their ears were not sensitive to the Truth he was speaking.

Later, Peter reaffirmed to us of what he saw on the mount as he recorded in 2nd Peter chapter 1:

19  And so we have been given the prophetic Word—the written message of the prophets, made more reliable and fully validated by the confirming voice of God on the Mount of Transfiguration. And you will continue to do well if you stay focused on it. For this prophetic Message is like a piercing light shining in a gloomy place until the dawning of a new day, when the Morning Star rises in your hearts.

20 You must understand this at the outset: Interpretation of Scriptural prophecy requires the Holy Spirit, for it does not originate from someone’s own imagination. 21 No true prophecy comes from human initiative but is inspired by the moving of the Holy Spirit upon those who spoke the message that came from God.

The Holy Spirit will give each of us peace about a “prophetic word” spoken by man if it is truly inspired by The Holy Spirit.  We must be careful to assume every word spoken and claimed to be Truth by a known prophet is inspired by GOD.  They too are subject to error if they become insensitive in their hearts in a particular area of the life.  Operating in a gift does not guarantee revelation in all areas.  You can operate in a gift and have little faith.  That is why some prophets die of sickness and/or disease.
