Today’s Prayer For You

Thursday, January 9th, 2020

My Prayer for you today:

I pray that the FATHER of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know HIM through your deepening intimacy with HIM.

I pray that the light of Our Heavenly Father will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of HIS calling—that is, the wealth of HIS glorious inheritances that HE finds in us, HIS Holy ones!

I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of FATHER’S power made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through you! This is the mighty power that was released when FATHER raised Christ from the dead and exalted Him to the place of highest honor and supreme authority in the Heavenly realm!  And now He is exalted as first above every ruler, authority, government, and realm of power in existence! He is gloriously enthroned over every name that is ever praised, not only in this age, but in the age that is coming!

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen!

Embrace these Words for The Holy Spirit wants to minister to you in the illumination of the light which proceeds from FATHER’S Throne!

Spiritual Audit

Wednesday, January 8th, 2020

Have you returned to your first Love?  Each of us should do a Spiritual audit and critically assess our walk.  Are we easily distracted by the world’s offerings?  Are we glued to the news happening around the world much of it will have little or no effect on your life today?  Are we simply fact seekers which contain no revelation?  These pursuits keep us from removing the limitations which must be overcome if we are to walk according to our purpose.  Our limitations are what we don’t know or understand and that will prevent us from being fully led by The Holy Spirit.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians 1:

1 Dear friends,

My name is Paul, and I was chosen by God to be an apostle of Jesus, the Messiah. 2 I’m writing this letter to all the devoted believers who have been made holy by being one with Jesus, the Anointed One.

May God himself, the heavenly Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, release grace over you and impart total well-being into your lives.

3 Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm has already been lavished upon us as a love gift from our wonderful heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus—all because he sees us wrapped into Christ. This is why we celebrate him with all our hearts!

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

5–6 For it was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify his grace—for the same love he has for his Beloved One, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure!

We are HIS unfolding plan and if we have lost our passion we will restrict our ability to walk as partakers in HIS Divine Nature.  We need not beg for blessings and prosperity, FATHER has ordained us to walk in it.  HE provided The Way if we will only respond and diligently seek HIM.  Are we giving HIM our best or are we giving HIM the “leftovers” of our day?

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians 2:

4 But God still loved us with such great love. He is so rich in compassion and mercy. 5 Even when we were dead and doomed in our many sins, he united us into the very life of Christ and saved us by his wonderful grace! 6 He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!

7 Throughout the coming ages we will be the visible display of the infinite, limitless riches of his grace and kindness, which was showered upon us in Jesus Christ. 8 For it was only through this wonderful grace that we believed in him. Nothing we did could ever earn this salvation, for it was the gracious gift from God that brought us to Christ! 9 So no one will ever be able to boast, for salvation is never a reward for good works or human striving.

10 We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our destiny and the good works we would do to fulfill it!

We have a destiny to fulfill so why delay it?  People are in need of our good works so let us be the expression of FATHER’S Love toward them so they too will come to realize they have a destiny to fulfill as well.  The only way we can be in unity is by being led by The Holy Spirit.  Otherwise, men will bring forth division due to self interest.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

26 And in a similar way, the Holy Spirit takes hold of us in our human frailty to empower us in our weakness. For example, at times we don’t even know how to pray, or know the best things to ask for. But the Holy Spirit rises up within us to super-intercede on our behalf, pleading to God with emotional sighs too deep for words.

27 God, the searcher of the heart, knows fully our longings, yet he also understands the desires of the Spirit, because the Holy Spirit passionately pleads before God for us, his holy ones, in perfect harmony with God’s plan and our destiny.

FATHER wants us to be in perfect harmony with HIS Divine Intent.  What better way to live!  HE knows our future and we are to bring it forth into the “now”.  You and I are called to change history for we are to be HIS instruments on earth to evoke change.

Paul also wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Timothy chapter 2:

23 Stay away from all the foolish arguments of the immature, for these disputes will only generate more conflict. 24 For a true servant of our Lord Jesus will not be argumentative but gentle toward all and skilled in helping others see the truth, having great patience toward the immature. 25 Then with meekness you’ll be able to carefully enlighten those who argue with you so they can see God’s gracious gift of repentance and be brought to the truth. 26 This will cause them to rediscover themselves and escape from the snare of Satan who caught them in his trap so that they would carry out his purposes.

There are many immature believers who oppose themselves as they seek to argue their position which arises out of their soulish understanding.  We are called to be gentle and skilled with them and this is accomplished by speaking what we hear The Holy Spirit is saying.  There is no argument when we have the Absolute Truth from Above and conveyed to us by The Holy Spirit.

Let me encourage you to do frequent Spiritual audits to assess if there are any areas needing focus.  I reflect on my encounters with others and make course corrections so that I don’t veer off the path known as The Way.  It’s called being sensitive to The Holy Spirit and purposing to speak His Words and not my own.

Fear of THE LORD

Tuesday, January 7th, 2020

How many of us have fully experienced the Fear of THE LORD in our lives?  Have we become complacent in our daily lives to the point where Our Heavenly Father is not at the center of our walk?  Do we only call upon Jesus when we are in a time of trouble?  Do we take The Holy Spirit for granted and devalue His ministry in our temple?

Why did Jesus have John write to the seven churches in the Book of Revelations?  Those in charge were not listening to Jesus thus their assemblies were lacking and didn’t know it.  What you don’t know that you need to know, that is your enemy! These writings are meant to focus on what we don’t know so that we will change.  Until you and I are fully mature, we need to change.  We will only change by receiving greater revelation meant to elevate us spiritually.

There is much written that tickle our eyes and much spoken that appeals to our ears.  The fundamental question is “Will what I saw and heard today truly change me?”  My soulish ambitions have sent me on many rabbit trails in the past.  The originators of those rabbit trails promoted themselves rather than Jesus Christ and sought followers to subtly do the same.  This often resulted in setting oneself above others by have superior knowledge.  Whatever happened to serving others and lifting them up?  Don’t go down the enticing rabbit trail for it is a waste of time and then causes the need for correction.

It is critical that we fully pursue “the Fear of THE LORD” and experience it individually.  What I am suggesting is not a simple thing.  For the most part, the church has removed the need for this in their services.  Overall, churches’ attendance is dwindling and there are less professed Christians according to surveys.  Only when there are catastrophic events does attendance increase.  Otherwise, entertainment has a higher priority than seeking the Fear of THE LORD.  Let us as Sons and Daughters prepare ourselves and be in full pursuit of consistently walking in the Fear of THE LORD.  Consider what happened when this occurred in Acts 9

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Acts 9:

31 Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied.  NKJV

31 After this, the church all over Judea, Galilee, and Samaria experienced a season of peace. The congregations grew larger and larger, with the believers being empowered and encouraged by the Holy Spirit. They worshiped God in wonder and awe, and walked in the fear of the Lord.  TPT

The Hebraic concept of “the fear of the Lord,” means more than just dread or terror. It also includes “to worship with awe.”  The following verses speak for themselves:

Psalm 111:10 

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

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

​​His praise endures forever.

Psalm 34:

8 ​​Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;

​​Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

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

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

10 ​​The young lions lack and suffer hunger;

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

​11 ​​Come, you children, listen to me;

​​I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

Psalm 19:

7 ​​The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul;

​​The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;

8 ​​The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;

​​The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;

9 ​​The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;

​​The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

10 ​​More to be desired are they than gold,

​​Yea, than much fine gold;

​​Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 ​​Moreover by them Your servant is warned,

​​And in keeping them there is great reward.

Proverbs 2:

​1 My son, if you receive my words,

​​And treasure my commands within you,

2 ​​So that you incline your ear to wisdom,

​​And apply your heart to understanding;

3 ​​Yes, if you cry out for discernment,

​​And lift up your voice for understanding,

4 ​​If you seek her as silver,

​​And search for her as for hidden treasures;

5 ​​Then you will understand the fear of the LORD,

​​And find the knowledge of God.

6 ​​For the LORD gives wisdom;

​​From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

7 ​​He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

​​He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;

8 ​​He guards the paths of justice,

​​And preserves the way of His saints.

9 ​​Then you will understand righteousness and justice,

​​Equity and every good path.

Proverbs 8:

12 “For I am Wisdom, and I am shrewd and intelligent.

I have at my disposal living-understanding

to devise a plan for your life.

13 Wisdom pours into you

when you begin to hate every form of evil in your life,

for that’s what worship and fearing God is all about.

Then you will discover

that your pompous pride and perverse speech

are the very ways of wickedness that I hate!”  TPT

Proverbs 10:

27 ​​The fear of the LORD prolongs days,

​​But the years of the wicked will be shortened.

Proverbs 15:

16 ​​Better is a little with the fear of the LORD,

​​Than great treasure with trouble.

Proverbs 19:

23 ​​The fear of the LORD leads to life,

​​And he who has it will abide in satisfaction;

​​He will not be visited with evil.

Isaiah 11:

​1 There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,

​​And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.

2 ​​The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him,

​​The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,

​​The Spirit of counsel and might,

​​The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.

​3 ​​His delight is in the fear of the LORD,

​​And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,

​​Nor decide by the hearing of His ears;

4 ​​But with righteousness He shall judge the poor,

​​And decide with equity for the meek of the earth;

​​He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth,

​​And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked.  NKJV

11 The cut-off stump of Jesse will sprout,

    and a fruitful Branch will grow from his roots:

2 the Spirit of Yahweh will rest upon him,

    the Spirit of Extraordinary Wisdom,

    the Spirit of Perfect Understanding

    the Spirit of Wise Strategy,

    the Spirit of Mighty Power,

    the Spirit of Revelation,

    and the Spirit of the Fear of Yahweh.

3 He will find his delight in living

    by the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord.

    He will neither judge by appearances

    nor make his decisions based on rumors.

4 With righteousness he will uphold justice for the poor

    and defend the lowly of the earth.

    His words will be like a scepter of power

    that conquers the world,

    and with his breath he will slay the lawless one.

5 Righteousness will be his warrior’s sash

    and faithfulness his belt.    TPT

Isaiah 33:

5 Yahweh is high and lifted up; he dwells on high!

    He lavished his justice and righteousness on Zion!

6 He will be your constant source of stability in changing times,

    and out of his abundant love he gives you

    the riches of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge.

    Yes, the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure!  TPT

Selah!

Be A Partaker

Monday, January 6th, 2020

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

3 Everything we could ever need for life and complete devotion to God has already been deposited in us by his divine power. For all this was lavished upon us through the rich experience of knowing him who has called us by name and invited us to come to him through a glorious manifestation of his goodness. 4 As a result of this, he has given you magnificent promises that are beyond all price, so that through the power of these tremendous promises you can experience partnership with the divine nature, by which you have escaped the corrupt desires that are of the world.

The Greek word koinonos means “to participate as a partner, to partake of, to be a companion with, to have fellowship with” the Divine nature. This is one of the great mysteries of our faith, that God shares HIS nature with us. We are given birth by the Holy Spirit to be God’s true sons and daughters, and every father imparts his DNA and his “nature” to his children. The Greek word physis (nature) is taken from the word phyō, which means “to give birth, produce, bring forth, or to grow up.” Christ lives in us and transforms us into His very own likeness. In Christ we share with Him the Divine nature. We will all bear the image of the Man from Heaven, Jesus Christ.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

An Paul further wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians 3:

20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

The power that works in us is released based on our expectation and it can only be hindered by fear, unbelief, and doubt.  FATHER isn’t limiting our power, we are.  These writings are meant to expose these hindrances so you will deal with them just as I have had to deal with them.

Our Heavenly Father made us in HIS Image so we can walk, talk, and work with HIM!  Never forget this Truth.  HIS angels are sent to minister to those who are to inherit the Kingdom.  They have been set to make sure you and I walk out our life in dominion and synchronization with Heaven.  Let us not thwart their mission by doubting our individual callings.

You and I are not on earth simply to survive, we are here to qualify for our next assignments for we are going to rule and reign with Jesus for eternity.  The Beloved Disciple recorded by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 20:

4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

We have the resources to support us as we walk out what we are instructed to do.  When we are led by The Holy Spirit, we are “sent ones” and the angels will see to the deployment of resources on our behalf.  We need to have faith in GOD to deploy those resources without limitation.  HE is ready, are we?

Receive, Then Give

Sunday, January 5th, 2020

In order to give, you must first receive.  Otherwise, there is nothing to give.  This is true in being sent by FATHER to minister to those with whom you come in contact on a daily basis. 

When I receive revelation from FATHER in the morning, I write to you and share what is relevant for today.  HE knows who reads these writings so I don’t worry about getting HIS Word out to the intended audience.

When FATHER speaks, all of Heaven is there to back HIS Word for its intended purpose because FATHER speaks only out of HIS Divine Intent.  When HE speaks to you and me, we need to realize that Heaven’s resources are there to fulfill whatever HE has spoken.  If HE says it, it is meant to come to pass.  Our unbelief is the only thing that will hinder fulfillment because FATHER has given us that right to refuse HIS blessing.  Why would I refuse anything from FATHER?

In Luke chapter 10, Jesus sends out the seventy:

1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. 2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. 3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road. 5 But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. 8 Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. 9 And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’

Those seventy disciples received a directive from Jesus thus they became “sent ones” carrying FATHER’S Divine Intent.  With that Divine Intent came power and authority from Heaven.  They first received in order for them to give.

The results of Jesus’ impartation to the seventy:

17 Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”

18 And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.

Jesus told them to rejoice in who they are versus what they were able to do.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 3:

1 Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority! 2 Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm.  TPT

Our focus should be Heavenly-based not the natural realm.  I have no opinion because I realize FATHER’S absolute Truth is the only thing worthy for me to trust in.  When I receive HIS Truth, I have something to minister to others.  When Jesus sent the seventy, they operated according to HIS Word, not their reliance on their own ability.  The more “Heavenly-minded” I am, the more “earthly-good” I become.

When I submit to FATHER, I am able to receive from HIM and walk out HIS directives which promote life, blessing, and prosperity allowing me to fulfill my purpose.  I am to use resources under my control to fulfill HIS Divine Intent, not hoard them up for worldly purposes.  If you knew you were going to physically die within the next 30 days, what possessions would you hold on to?  Why?  What would be your priorities? 

FATHER’S priorities are my priorities.  HIS Truths are my truths.  HIS ways are my ways.  I seek daily to remove any error in my understanding and I recommend you do the same.  I seek to be sifted of all impurities in my life for I want to become HIS full expression to others.  Is there another priority above this pursuit?  I only want to be sent with HIS power and authority, not for any other reason.  I must receive revelation before I can be effective in my words and actions.

I am yoked to Jesus Christ and accept HIS leadership in my life.  His yoke is easy and His burden is light.  What better person to be yoked to in my walk!  I do not question His Words or authority.  I do not devalue His importance in my walk thus I focus on His Words and His priorities.  There are a myriad of other pursuits out there but none of them are life-changing therefore they are of no value to my purpose.  Everything connected to Jesus is forward looking and that is where I am headed as I hope you are as well.  Why dwell in the past?

If Jesus tells me to do something, I am receiving from the Spiritual realm which promotes life and my future in the physical realm.  As I am obedient to do HIS Word in the physical realm, I receive additionally from the Spiritual realm.  We need to understand the flow between the Spiritual and the physical for we are the conduits between the two.

Thank You

Saturday, January 4th, 2020

I want to thank those who gave to Servias Ministries in 2019.  Your cheerful giving is credited to your account in Heaven and FATHER will bless you because of it.  Paul affirms this when he wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 4.  Let these words express my gratitude to you on behalf of Servias:

10 My heart overflows with joy when I think of how you showed your love to me by your financial support of my ministry. For even though you have so little, you still continue to help me at every opportunity. 11 I’m not telling you this because I’m in need, for I have learned to be satisfied in any circumstance. 12–13 I know what it means to lack, and I know what it means to experience overwhelming abundance. For I’m trained in the secret of overcoming all things, whether in fullness or in hunger. And I find that the strength of Christ’s explosive power infuses me to conquer every difficulty.

14 You’ve so graciously provided for my essential needs during this season of difficulty. 15 For I want you to know that the Philippian church was the only church that supported me in the beginning as I went out to preach the gospel. You were the only church that sowed into me financially, 16 and when I was in Thessalonica, you supported me for well over a year.

17 I mention this not because I’m requesting a gift, but so that the fruit of your generosity may bring you an abundant reward. 18 I now have all I need—more than enough—I’m abundantly satisfied! For I’ve received the gift you sent by Epaphroditus and viewed it as a sweet sacrifice, perfumed with the fragrance of your faithfulness, which is so pleasing to God!

19 I am convinced that my God will fully satisfy every need you have, for I have seen the abundant riches of glory revealed to me through the Anointed One, Jesus Christ! 20 And God our Father will receive all the glory and the honor throughout the eternity of eternities! Amen!

FATHER has a reward system in Heaven and those who understand this system will reap its abundance.  A reward system is conditional for if you give, you are rewarded.  Your giving is not conditional on whether your gift is “optimized” by the recipient but it is based on the condition of your heart when you give.  The deployment of your gift by the recipient is between him or her and FATHER.

Giving sets you up to receive from FATHER out of HIS abundance and you should expect to receive.  Paul understood this when he mentioned your abundant reward.  I seek only to write Truths which will help you reroute your path to stay fully on Jesus’ path known as The Way.  Some of these Truths are offensive in that they confront doctrines and beliefs which promote self interest versus unconditional Love.

What is the purpose of receiving a reward from Heaven?  It is to further our purpose on earth given to us before we were formed in the womb.  If you are reluctant to be a cheerful giver, you hinder your purpose.  Don’t let fear paralyze you but simply trust FATHER’S Word.

When you read these blogs, you become accountable and responsible for any revelation contained therein.  This is why I believe The Holy Spirit keeps them rather short and to the point.  There is no need to overwhelm the reader with an extensive research paper containing a multitude of points.  Take the point of each writing and discern what FATHER wants you to receive today.

My wife and I have reaped the benefits of FATHER’S reward system for decades and I want you to enjoy the fruitfulness of cheerful giving as well.  Jesus Himself said, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”  He means it!  

FATHER’S Splendor

Friday, January 3rd, 2020

The Holy Spirit expressed FATHER’S awesome splendor in Psalm 19.  What you get out of this Psalm depends on the current state of your heart.  If it is truly grateful for HIS magnificence, then you will read the following verses with great reverence.  The absolute Truth purges, cleanses, and sifts away the dross in our hearts.  When this happens, our perspective changes and we begin to see the unfathomable Love FATHER has for us.

1 GOD’S splendor is a tale that is told;

HIS testament is written in the stars.

Space itself speaks HIS story every day

through the marvels of the heavens.

HIS truth is on tour in the starry vault of the sky,

showing HIS skill in creation’s craftsmanship.

2 Each day gushes out its message to the next,

night with night whispering its knowledge to all.

3 Without a sound, without a word, without a voice being heard,

4 Yet all the world can see its story.

Everywhere its gospel is clearly read so all may know.

5 What a heavenly home GOD has set for the sun,

shining in the superdome of the sky!

See how he leaves HIS celestial chamber each morning,

radiant as a bridegroom ready for HIS wedding,

like a day-breaking champion eager to run HIS course.

6 He rises on one horizon, completing HIS circuit on the other,

warming lives and lands with HIS heat.

7 GOD’s Word is perfect in every way;

how it revives (converting) our souls!

HIS laws lead us to truth,

and HIS ways change the simple into wise.

8 HIS teachings make us joyful and radiate HIS light;

HIS precepts are so pure!

HIS commands, how they challenge us to keep close to HIS heart!

The revelation-light of HIS word makes my spirit shine radiant.

9 Every one of the Lord’s commands is right (The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever);

following them brings cheer.

Nothing he says ever needs to be changed (The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.).

10 The rarest treasures of life are found in HIS truth.

That’s why I prize GOD’s word like others prize the finest gold.

Nothing brings the soul such sweetness

as seeking HIS living words.

11 For they warn us, HIS servants,

and keep us from following the wicked way,

giving a lifetime guarantee:

great success to every obedient soul!

12 Without this revelation-light,

how would I ever detect the waywardness of my heart?

Lord, forgive my hidden flaws whenever you find them.

13 Keep cleansing me, GOD,

and keep me from my secret, selfish sins;

may they never rule over me!

For only then will I be free from fault

and remain innocent of rebellion.

14 So may the words of my mouth, my meditation-thoughts,

and every movement of my heart be always pure and pleasing,

acceptable before your eyes,

my only Redeemer, my Protector-GOD.

If FATHER’S Word is perfect in every way, I have no need of my own opinion.  Whatever FATHER says, that’s it!  Absolute Truth does not need an additional commentary from my limited experience.  What could I add which would be deemed beneficial?  Nothing!

When we relinquish our will to FATHER, we acknowledge HIS ownership of us individually.  This is when we can truly call HIM LORD.  When we come to this point, our mind can and will be fully renewed… without limitation. 

Uncontainable Joy

Thursday, January 2nd, 2020

The Holy Spirit recorded in Proverbs chapter 3:

5 Trust in the Lord completely,

and do not rely on your own opinions.

With all your heart rely on him to guide you,

and he will lead you in every decision you make.

6 Become intimate with him in whatever you do,

and he will lead you wherever you go.

7 Don’t think for a moment that you know it all,

for wisdom comes when you adore him with undivided devotion

and avoid everything that’s wrong.

8 Then you will find the healing refreshment

your body and spirit long for.

9 Glorify God with all your wealth,

honoring him with your very best,

with every increase that comes to you.

10 Then every dimension of your life will overflow with blessings

from an uncontainable source of inner joy!

Our desire should be to walk as the full expression of Our Lord Jesus Christ to everyone we encounter.  As we do, we should expect an overflow of blessings and uncontainable joy in our hearts.  For this to happen, we cannot hold anything back which is under our control.  This includes time, priorities, thought life, and resources.

The firstfruits of our day should be given to FATHER.  If we do this, the day will have HIS blessing on it and HE is able to multiply many aspects of our daily living.  The day just goes better and the roadblocks get removed.  Some of those roadblocks are removed without our realization and I am thankful for HIM sending the angels before me for my protection.  If I honor FATHER by giving HIM my very best, then every aspect of my life will overflow with blessings.

Until you overcome the “giving” issue, your maturing process will be hindered.  I had to overcome it years ago and it was directly related to the “trust issue”.  Did I really trust FATHER’S Word enough to let go of what we call hard-earned money?  Once I overcame my own self-oriented survival orientation (promoted by the world), FATHER’S economy was revealed to me and I have been able to experience it in my own life.

I am expecting a notable acceleration of Spiritual activity and I am determined not to miss being a part of it.  I hope you share this anticipation and commitment as well.  Those of us who are willing to fully align ourselves with FATHER’S plan, will experience a unity beyond what we have seen in the past.  It is going to be an exciting year!

Being A Part Of The Mandate

Wednesday, January 1st, 2020

What is our mandate this year?  It is found in the Words of Jesus in Luke chapter 11:

11 One day, as Jesus was in prayer, one of his disciples came over to him as he finished and said, “Would you teach us a model prayer that we can pray, just like John did for his disciples?”

2 So Jesus taught them this prayer: “Our heavenly Father, may the glory of your name be the center on which our life turns. May your Holy Spirit come upon us and cleanse us. Manifest your kingdom on earth. 3 And give us our needed bread for the coming day. 4 Forgive our sins as we ourselves release forgiveness to those who have wronged us. And rescue us every time we face tribulations.”

Jesus stated what their expectation should be when they prayed: Cleansed, sifted, and pure hearts by The Holy Spirit, then manifest FATHER’S Kingdom on earth.  This should be our priority in the same order and all else is of limited or no value in us becoming mature Sons and Daughters.  Every task we accomplish in our daily lives should never be far or disconnected from our mandate.  We need to “walk the walk”, not just “talk the talk”.

After His resurrection, Jesus once again stated the above priority to the disciples 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.

The very first thing He had to do was to expose and correct their unbelief.  Are you and I in this category?  Is unbelief limiting us from establishing His Kingdom on earth?  Jesus gave us a clear and simple mandate but man has diluted this mandate with unbelief and limiting doctrines.  Failure is not an option in Heaven.  How many times did Jesus tell the disciples what to expect when He went to Jerusalem?  They spent 3 ½ years with Him seeing miracles from Heaven yet their hearts were hardened with unbelief.  After correcting them He spoke:

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.”

You and I have the same mandate but if our hearts are hardened with unbelief, we will do nothing concerning this mandate.  Yes, we may mentally accept His Words but until unbelief is removed, we will simply be passive observers at best.  What was the next topic Jesus covered after directing the disciples to pray?  He further spoke in Luke chapter 11:

5 Then Jesus gave this illustration: “Imagine what would happen if you were to go to one of your friends in the middle of the night and pound on his door and shout, ‘Please! Do you have some food you can spare? 6 A friend just arrived at my house unexpectedly and I have nothing to serve him.’ 7 But your friend says, ‘Why are you bothering me? The door’s locked and my family and I are all in bed. Do you expect me to get up and give you our food?’ 8 But listen—because of your shameless impudence, even though it’s the middle of the night, your friend will get up out of his bed and give you all that you need. 9–10 So it is with your prayers. Ask and you’ll receive. Seek and you’ll discover. Knock on heaven’s door, and it will one day open for you. Every persistent person will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he needs. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door.

One who is persistent will get what he asks for.  Our persistence conveys our belief and trust in FATHER’S Word.  The word “try” is not in the vocabulary in Heaven and it is not written in your book written by FATHER (Psalm 139:16).  As we are persistent, our book will be fully revealed and those angels who are assigned to administer the contents of those books will be activated on our behalf.  Don’t allow unbelief to keep the contents of your book kept from you.  As you are persistent and establish faith IN GOD, the pages of your book will become available to you.

Do you think FATHER would write your book and fail to set assign resources to accomplish what you are to fulfill?  The adversary knows that if your unbelief keeps those resources from being dispatched, your mind will stay convinced of the “scarcity doctrine” and rationalize why you can’t fulfill the mandate given to us by Jesus.  Your heart will be hardened in this area and you will defend this belief by discounting any teaching concerning FATHER’S willingness to prosper us as we establish HIS Kingdom on earth.

The year 2020 will force a reckoning of where we all stand concerning the mandate to establish FATHER’S Kingdom on earth.  We will individually be asked, “What did you do with what was available to you?”  “Did you hide your light under a bushel?”

The adversary has promoted the excuse “Money is the root of all evil” and many believers have bought into this half truth as justification for their unbelief in the area of financial blessing.  This year, I plan to deal with this error even though it will surely offend some.  Why would FATHER use me to deal with this sensitive subject?  I have had the revelation of blessing and prosperity for decades, trusting and relying on HIM.  Many of the five-fold ministries unfortunately rely on your giving to keep them afloat.  I don’t thus I don’t have to be reluctant to share what The Holy Spirit wants me to write.  My wife and I give to Servias Ministries as well as other areas as many of you do.  Jesus lost followers when He spoke about finances.  The rich young ruler in Matthew 19 was one.  Greed is one of the core areas exposed in people’s hearts because the world constant promotes the falsehood of scarcity on earth.

By the way, the census conducted years ago which included a silver coin, continues to be in safekeeping in the Treasury of THE LORD until HE directs us to deploy it.  All coins are accounted for and none have been removed.  Those coins are separated and Holy and will remain in the Treasury until deployment.

If you don’t believe you can be one of those who fund the Kingdom of Our Heavenly Father, you won’t!  If you have no expectation of financial blessing, the windows of Heaven will remain closed in that area.  If you have no expectation of healing, those same windows will remain shut.  We need to have faith IN GOD which means we need to trust in HIS Word in all areas if we are to fulfill HIS mandate on earth.

The immature will probably get offended by some of the Truths which will come forth this year.  It only reveals where their hearts are.  Now is the time to step up and establish the Kingdom on earth… your resources and finances are included in HIS mandate.  It will require great faith and complete trust in FATHER’S Word.  Many are called but few are chosen.  These blogs are directed to chose who wish to be chosen.  Let’s not simply be observers of what FATHER is doing on earth.  Let you and I be counted among the chosen, without restriction or hesitation.

Revelation Of Blessing

Tuesday, December 31st, 2019

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 6:

1 “Examine your motives to make sure you’re not showing off when you do your good deeds, only to be admired by others; otherwise, you will lose the reward of your heavenly Father. 2 So when you give to the poor, don’t announce it and make a show of it just to be seen by people, like the hypocrites in the streets and in the marketplace. They’ve already received their reward! 3 But when you demonstrate generosity, do it with pure motives and without drawing attention to yourself. 4 Give secretly and your Father, who sees all you do, will reward you openly.”

Would you rather receive a reward from man or from Our Heavenly Father?  Our motives for giving should be pure and without consideration of promoting oneself.  As we submit to The Holy Spirit in our giving, we will open up the storehouses of Heaven and allow FATHER to extend resources to us for the furthering of the Kingdom.

In Heaven, there is no lack or scarcity yet many believers trust their observations on earth as their basis for expectation of blessing.  If your personal history is one of lack, you must overcome that mentality by building up your trust in FATHER’S Word.  Didn’t Jesus’ ministry focus on changing people’s views by revealing FATHER’S Love and healing the multitudes.  Wasn’t the feeding of five thousand meant to show us that Heaven isn’t restricted by the world’s lack?  The disciples wanted to send them away rather than meet the need at hand.

We are challenged by FATHER to overcome our orientation and perception of lack.  We are bombarded by the world’s view of scarcity on a daily basis but that scarcity is based on lack of revelation.

Does FATHER know where all the wealth on earth exists today?  HE is the One who established value so we should be seeking HIS Face in order to release wealth set aside for bringing forth the Kingdom to earth.  Our only limitation is found in our mind due to lack of revelation.

What is the difference between a curable disease and an incurable disease?  Revelation!  Think about it, the answer is never far away.  As I have experienced in the past concerning finances and release of what is needed, I am only one phone call away from a blessing.  This is true for you too.

When I pray in THE SPIRIT, I open myself up to bringing Heaven to earth and should expect FATHER to reveal HIS plans which support my calling.  HE is not hesitant to dispatch HIS angels on my behalf and they will perform the pure Word for our benefit.  I am expecting a dramatic increase in observed angelic activity in the coming year.  As you and I come to full maturity, we should expect to see in the spirit realm to a greater degree as they minister on our behalf.  They carry the absolute Truth with them as they are dispatched to confirm FATHER’S Word to our individual situations and take needed action specific to our calling which is written in Heaven for them to reference (Psalm 139:16).  The Holy Spirit revealed in Hebrews chapter 1:

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

The angels have a mandate to administer the absolute Truth from Heaven based on what FATHER has spoken.  Once you grasp this revelation, you will begin to expect blessing to come your way.  Don’t let your mind dilute this revelation by listening to men whose doctrines indicate they have yet to walk in such revelation.  Jesus spoke in Luke 12:

29 I repeat it: Don’t let worry enter your life. Live above the anxious cares about your personal needs. 30 People everywhere seem to worry about making a living, but your heavenly Father knows your every need and will take care of you. 31 Each and every day he will supply your needs as you seek his kingdom passionately, above all else. 32 So don’t ever be afraid, dearest friends! Your loving Father joyously gives you his kingdom realm with all its promises!

33 “So, now, go and sell what you have and give to those in need, making deposits in your account in heaven, an account that will never be taken from you. Your gifts will become a secure and unfailing treasure, deposited in heaven forever. 34 Where you deposit your treasure, that is where your thoughts will turn to—and your heart will long to be there also.”  TPT

Those of us who come to rely on the Word spoken by Jesus will enter into a supernatural rest that the world cannot disengage from us.  It all centers around listening, responding, and enacting what The Holy Spirit directs us on a daily basis.  It is imperative that each of us become comfortable being led by The Holy Spirit this coming year.

Our mandate is to bring Heaven to earth and that is accomplished by walking according to FATHER’S Word and HE will dispatch angels to accomplish that Word on behalf of each of HIS Sons and Daughters.  Now is the time to set your expectation of blessing in your life!
