Perfecting the Saints

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

There is a time coming when those who are currently in power will no longer be in control over mankind.  It is they who are “coming to nothing”:

1 Corinthians 2:

6 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

9 But as it is written:

​​​“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,

​​Nor have entered into the heart of man

​​The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

We will soon be sealed with the Mind of Christ.  FATHER is revealing HIS plan to those who have been ordained before the foundations of the world to bring forth HIS Kingdom, not with man’s earthly, sensual wisdom, but the Wisdom found only in HIM and revealed to us through HIS Spirit.  The Law without the Spirit is dead and is a harsh taskmaster, continually requiring performance and action.  Paul further states:

13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.

16 For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

All the highly intelligent men of today think the “called out ones” are foolish yet the current system continues to move toward utter destruction.  All the think tanks around the world cannot seem to bring forth peace, safety, and adequate food, shelter, and clothing for the masses.  Their solution?  Reduce the population… as long as they are not counted among those being “reduced”.

The elect are being prepared with the Mind of Christ and the perfecting is done by the power of Love.  Once this impartation is complete, they will be sealed with the Mind of Christ and at that point the fullness of time is at hand.  This impartation of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and skill will be activated with grace, that is HIS Divine enablement.  This has been a hidden work.  The remnant have come to understand the futility of the carnal mind and have put off the former conduct.  Their minds are being renewed in preparation for the fullness of their calling.

The remnant are fully submitting to be led by HIS Spirit.  The things of this world no longer appeal to them.  They are answering the call to come up to the Spirit.  They are indeed putting on Christ.  Love is binding each one into the glorious Body of Christ.  This is the true unity that can only be attained by those who walk in Love and not just speaking idle words without actions to confirm their intent.  Those who talk the talk without the walk are simply clouds without water:

Proverbs 25:14  Like clouds and wind without rain Is a man who boasts of his gifts falsely.

When the harvest is at hand, those with fruitfulness will be separated from the tares.  The fruit determines the disposition.  They are the ones being matured unto good works for the Kingdom.

A Conservative View of the Debt

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Most who read this site are aspiring overcomers.  They have some revelation in this area and seek a greater, deeper understanding of what it means to be an overcomer.  In the King James Version, the word “overcometh” is mentioned eleven times.  It is the Greek word  nikaō #3528 from the root meaning “victory”.  Notice the John, the Beloved Disciple is the only one who writes of this particular word.  Could the Beloved Disciple be on to something?  Selah!

1 John 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

1 John 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

Rev 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Rev 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Rev 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Rev 2:26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Rev 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

Rev 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Are you distracted away from your calling?


Symbols, Types, and Shadows

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

This week while walking down the street our youngest grandson discovered his shadow.  Of course he waved at it.  It waved back.  He was highly entertained by his shadow.  His Meme’s shadow began to interact with his and what a sight it was to behold.  All this was simply a reflection of life but not life itself.

We are not to be led by symbols, types, and shadows but instead by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of Our Heavenly Father.  We are to be led by HIS Spirit, not the signs.  At best signs are only a confirmation but ONLY when HE tells us.  Yes, HE is the author of all signs, types, symbols, and shadows, but not all of them are relevant to us.

We have access to the visible and the invisible.  the Invisible created the visible so wouldn’t it make sense to pursue your path by the ONE who created the path in the first place?  Do you follow signs or do signs follow you?

Sometimes you will be placed on an unpopular path.  You will be pressured by others to tow the politically correct line as you diverge from their path.  How many disciples showed up to Jesus’ crucifixion?  Just one: John, the Beloved disciple.  The others dispersed out of fear and denial for the public pressure was greater than their revelation and understanding.

Symbols, types, and shadows can be a carnal taskmaster.  I saw one young lady who made a trip to the northeast and listened to her recount signs she experienced for 45 minutes .  She then interpreted those signs to justify her current state.  Signs don’t produce fruit, they at best are simply a shadow of fruit.  She missed the opportunity to simply “BE”.

Are you called to be a light unto the world or simply a reflection or cast a shadow?  Each of us are called to a personal relationship with FATHER.  We each have the opportunity to receive directly from HIM.  Yes, it is important to interact with others as they share what FATHER is saying to them.  That is the “spice” of life.  The sharing is just one aspect of joy, encouragement, and growth among the saints.  Forsake not the fellowshipping of the saints.

Our walk must come from within, not based on external signs.  We must not delay what we are hearing from FATHER as we wait for external signs to confirm HIS Word to us.  As we become mature sons and daughters, we know HIS plan, will, and purpose.  We don’t need to rely on some external confirmation.

When you move into uncharted territory there are no signs to follow, only HIS Voice.  This is where trust and assurance come into play.  The young and immature need signs to assure and comfort them.  That is okay.  They may even be entertained by them.  That can be a precious sight as well.  But in the end, the mature ones will hear the Word and respond.  They will not look to the external or others for assurance for the know HIM, HIS Word and the Divine Intent behind HIS Word.

A Word of Thanks

Friday, September 26th, 2014

Oh what a blessing, God works behind the scenes and then reveals His Glory.  I was surprised to find another check from Servias Ministries for $500 last week. When I called Bob to thank Servias again I asked if there were any individual names that I could thank personally and he suggested that I write him an email which he would put on the blog for everyone.  Sooooo!  Thank you Servias for being obedient and letting people know of the need and thank you all for listening and being obedient servants of the Lord.

I believe we are all in for a big change as the Kingdom is unveiled to us.  But as long as the Lord allows me to maintain the boat it will continue to be His and available for His people to use.  We had an absolutely wonderful evening last Sunday when Jan Kennedy a local friend who donated to the cause brought 5 of her beautiful friends down to the boat for dinner and fellowship. It was so difficult I really had to suffer for the Lord. 

As much as I love living aboard if it is a heart idol and a hindrance to my service for the Lord I’m sure he will give me a new direction send someone will along to carry on the boat’s legacy. 
So Hallelujah I’m getting closer to having enough money to either repair or demolish the boat.  I’m researching products that will deal with wet wood.  It’s in His hands I’m just waiting for clear directions.  Here is a opportunity for someone to own or partner in a classic boat and have a condo on the bay  for the cost of repairs.

Thanks again friends,

Be Blessed

The True Treasury

Friday, September 26th, 2014

The true Treasury is not Egyptian artifacts, fiat currencies, gold, silver, or other tangible assets.  The Apostle Paul states:

Colossians 2:1 For I want you to know what a great conflict I have for you and those in Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh,

2 that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ,

3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Wisdom, understanding, and knowledge from Above are the real treasures.  “IN HIM” is where those treasures are stored.  There are those who are solely focused on the wealth of the world and believe they are called to manage that wealth.  If that is what is in their hearts, let them pursue that path.  As for me, being IN HIM is treasure enough.  I gladly give up the corruptible for the incorruptible.

Our Heavenly Father orchestrated the depositing of the Egyptian artifacts with me as a test.  Would I pursue the things of this world?  I was not moved by their value or scarcity.  When the time arrived, I was glad to be rid of them.  The Iraqi Dinar was deposited with the legal right to exchange them for US Dollars.  I knew the intent of the givers- await revaluation before exchanging them.  It was necessary to do nothing with them since the intent was clear.  Once again, Our Heavenly Father instructed me to distribute the deposit to someone who understood the intent.  This deposit is a type and shadow of the current age just as the artifacts represented the previous age.  My focus is on the age to come.  I believe the true treasury is found IN HIM.  Yes, we must occupy till that time is fully manifested.  In the meantime, HE will supply our need according to HIS riches.  We will all see how this plays out before are eyes.  Let’s do some knitting.

Is the Economy really recovering?

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

It appears the US Department of Transportation’s Trust fund is running out of money.  People are not driving as much thus the road tax revenue continues to dwindle. reports:

Down for the Month, August Existing-Home Sales Were in Tenth Month of Annual Decline

Durable Goods Orders Crashed 18.0% (-18.0%), Reversing July’s 22.2% Surge, Dominated Again by Irregular Commercial-Aircraft Orders

The primary reason this lengthy recession does not look like the 1930’s is due to the difference of infrastructure and government assistance payments.  Social Security was enacted in 1935 and has grown ever since.  In 2011 some 49.2 percent of U.S. households received benefits from one or more government programs—about 151 million out of an estimated 306.8 million Americans—according to U.S. Census Bureau data released last October.  Where does the money come from?  Out of thin air.  How much longer can this be sustained?  Only Our Heavenly Father knows.

During the election cycle, you can assume that no negative economic numbers will make the headlines.  Afterward, look out!

Answers to the economic challenges ahead can only be found from Above.  If men were smart enough to figure it all out, they would have already implemented the solution.  Any band aid will only deal with the symptom, not the underlying problem.  We are in truly uncharted territory in this current system.  However, there are no surprises in Heaven.

Be Ye Transformed

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Today is Rosh Hashana, the first day of the new year.  It is the day the shofar is sounded to turn our heads and hear.  It begins a ten day focus of repentance for the people.  A trumpet denotes a prophetic Word.  Now is the time for those who are called by FATHER to come up hither.  Is is a time to be transformed:

Romans 12:2  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Those three “wills” denote the facets of the three feasts:  Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles.  There are those of us who earnestly seek to walk in the Spirit, into the state of perfection.  John states that Love is the bond of perfection and thus I am convinced that we must walk accordingly.  We are spirit, soul, and body.  Many walk according to the two lower aspects of their makeup.  They operate in the lower realm of the world and are subject to those powers:

Ephesian 2:1 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

The trumpet is being sounded for men and women to come up to the higher realm of the Spirit.  This is where true freedom and liberty are at:

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

I pray:

Purge us, refine us, thresh us, perfect us, transform us, change us, mature us, and conform us to the image of the Son!

Let our focus move from the outward to the inward.

Let us today be fully transformed by the renewing of our mind.  Let us not be entrapped by men’s traditions and carnal beliefs promoted by the world systems and:

Ephesians 3:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.
