Probiotics and Restless Legs

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system.  Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D. specializing in cancer treatment stated:

“Without normal bacteria you are not going to utilize nutrients sufficiently…” Page 102 of Tox-Sick by Suzanne Summers.  He further stated “… while probiotics can’t create minerals, they help the body utilize minerals more efficiently”.  He strongly recommends probiotics on a daily basis.

Multi-blend probiotics can be obtained at:


According to Dr. Sherry Rogers in her July 2015 newsletter “Total Wellness”, people suffering from restless leg should start with 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 daily.  She states on page 6:

“And vitamin D deficiency (which is epidemic, extending across all socio-economic levels) is only one of many causes. Correcting for magnesium, iron, DHA and other deficiencies as you would find on a Cardio/ION has been proven to cure the problem.”

Our Cornerstone

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

The one thing that occurs when you write blogs, you go on record for all the world to know your position… right or wrong.  Our goal is to be completely open and transparent about life as we see it.  I believe the Bible to be infallible and having lived according to the Love and Truth it conveys, I expected positive results to occur in my life.  I have mentioned often that we must inspect the fruit of people who proclaim a doctrine or belief system in order to determine if it is valid and promotes life.  Anything that moves you toward death and destruction is cause for concern.  Jesus Christ Whom I follow made this Truth quite clear in John chapter 10:

9   “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

10   The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

11   I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.”

Can it be any simpler than that?

When you begin construction on a house, you start with a specific reference point that all measurements and angles are to be taken from.  Throughout history it has been known as the cornerstone.  This is a fundamental Truth of my personal beliefs.  Jesus Christ is my manifested Reference Point by which I measure every aspect of my existence.  His Words present Love and Truth for all to measure themselves against for He is our Chief Cornerstone.  If you attempt to measure anything by me, watch out!  Don’t look to me but Christ in me for He is our High Priest who maketh intercession for us:

Romans 8:34  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

In the late 1970’s we attended a “faith” church and the pastor walked, talked, and preached faith.  He was experienced and had a history of success.  He preached The Word and was clearly blessed by FATHER.  However he is a man and subject to error.  Some of what he preached was not quite right but at the time I did not realize it.  I assumed everything he spoke was “spot on” so I accepted it all only to find out later he was in error in some subtle areas.  We have a tendency to exalt men who have been anointed by FATHER rather than keep Jesus Christ as the only one we exalt.  We must be careful to hear that still, small voice even when someone whom we esteem highly speaks (or writes).  Each of us has the responsibility to seek out the Truth and be witnessed in our spirit by the Holy Spirit.  You only have to look at recent history to see the prominent evangelists, pastors, teachers, apostles, and prophets who have fallen due to their exposed sin and lawlessness.  Does that make the Gospel of no effect?  Of course not.

As we dwell and meditate on the Words of Jesus, we begin to know His Character.  As we spend time focusing on what He is saying and accept Him as our Lord and Savior, we become His sheep.  We turn from death and destruction, we repent.  In the days, weeks, and months ahead, there will be many voices attempting to throw your off course.  People who are in turmoil will attempt to persuade you to join them to take their path toward death and destruction.  We must be vigilant in our faith in FATHER and HIS ability to deliver us out of every circumstance.  We must expect HIM to empower us with whatever is needful at the time.  Paul understood where the true power and authority is found as he wrote in Ephesians chapter 3:

14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,

17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—

19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

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

Let each of us be filled with the fullness of GOD, let us know the Love of Christ!  Let everything be measured against His Love.

Do not lose heart

Monday, June 29th, 2015

The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians chapter 4:

4:1 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart,

4:2 but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

If there is anything I have realized at this point in my life, I have very few answers to life other than those received from FATHER.  My opinions are being formed from HIS Word and not from some independent thought.  Any revelation I have cannot be claimed as originating with me and I do not care to exalt myself as someone enlightened by any other means but simply communicating FATHER’S Word through me.

The pure Truth is encapsulated in Love and we must look at all proclaimed Truth in that light.  Mankind is swiftly coming to a corporate climax that will separate the sheep from the goats and by HIS great grace and mercy I submit to HIS calling on my life.  I have no interest in trying to be independent in my thinking or direction but simply a vessel utilized for HIS service to mankind.

Each day we should endeavor to be become more Christ-like knowing that our flesh will somehow try to derail our walk toward the light of HIS Way but we must not be discouraged when we “lose our Jesus” as my friend refers to a temporary submission to the flesh.  There are many people out there that would want us to join them in their misery for misery loves company.  We must not align ourselves with them but instead minister the Truth in Love as we get the opportunity.  There will be some who reject the Truth and we will have no fellowship with them for a season.  That’s okay.  Simply pray for them and let the Truth in Love prevail in everyone’s life including your own.

We must not let someone’s basic doctrine prevent us from hearing what FATHER is showing them.  All of us have some error in our doctrine as long we are in this flesh.  Until the flesh is totally nailed to the cross and we have been endued fully with power from ON HIGH, we must assume that we don’t have a full and complete understanding of all Spiritual Truths.  I only have to look back over my lifetime to see how I had to discard what I thought were foundational beliefs to realize the fallacy of believing you have the whole picture on any subject.  FATHER had a corrective interview with Job which could easily occur with you or me.  “Where were you when I”… FATHER might ask that same question to you or me about any topic we could bring up where we claimed some expertise.

Do not be discouraged, but be of good courage.  FATHER knows our weaknesses just as HE knew the frailness of Gideon when FATHER activated his calling to overcome the Midianites.  Let us be of good cheer as we hear of the economic tremors heading our way.  We know that FATHER’S Love is greater than any issue on this small blue planet and HE will be victorious in each and every challenge that is set before us.  If you “lose your Jesus”, find HIM again and repent.  Don’t be discourage by what you see around you but let the Psalms comfort you.  Go into your prayer closet and don’t come out until peace returns.  I assure you It will.

Delivered from darkness

Sunday, June 28th, 2015

It is my prayer for you this day as written in Colossians chapter 1:

I ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;  strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;  giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.  He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,  in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.   Amen

Your presence will make a difference in the coming weeks, months, and years as your light shines forth overcoming the darkness that prevails in men’s lives.  Love cannot be enslaved or contained no matter what the physical state.  It can’t and won’t be restricted by any situation.  Love’s expression created all true law and counterfeit laws made by self-serving men will not hold up when Love confronts them.  Time after time throughout history FATHER has delivered the oppressed from the oppressors and HE will once again confirm HIS Love expressed through HIS Word.

Against all odds, Gideon’s army of 300 prevailed.  Elijah prevailed over the 450 prophets of Baal.  Jesus walked through the crowds undetected.  He walked through walls as needed.  Angels have preceded the children of Israel into battle and FATHER will use whatever resources needed to defeat man’s feeble attempts to thwart HIS Divine Will and plan.  Will the earth swallow up the central planners?  Will their own devices turn on them and subdue them?  Will FATHER use the Kings of the East to expose the hypocrisy and lies of the western central planners?  We need not concern ourselves how HE plans to deliver us but simply continue to prepare ourselves for such a deliverance.

At the first Passover, the death angel struck those in control at the most personal level killing their firstborn.  The children of Israel only needed to follow the instructions given to and through Moses in order that they did not receive the same judgment as the Egyptians.  FATHER will use unanticipated methods to bring forth judgment according to the circumstances at the time.  With the love of money (greed) being at the forefront of today’s lawlessness, don’t be surprised to see a full collapse and breaking up of this particular idol.  This idol has taken the form of fiat currency where men’s perception of power has been focused on mounds of paper and digital, virtual money that has no intrinsic value whatsoever.  The threat of retaliation is the only thing that currently supports the world’s reserve currency.  An electromagnetic pulse from the sun could cripple the current weaponry in an instant.

Let the above prayer become your heartfelt confession each day.  As you express this prayer, your words are planted in your being and move into agreement with FATHER.  HIS focus becomes your focus and you begin to walk worthy of the LORD, fully pleasing HIM.  You then begin to produce good fruit in every good work.  Meditate on the above prayer and embrace every word of it for your personal walk.  You will be delivered out of the darkness of this world into the Light.

Perilous Times

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

Little by little I have observed the changes in the U.S. as well as the rest of the world.  When I was young we did not lock the doors to our house at night while we slept.  We had screen doors to let the summer breeze cool the house down… our version of central air conditioning.  We entertained ourselves by playing outside with the neighborhood kids and thought nothing about strangers passing by.  The morals of society were high as well as the honor and respect of family structure.  My parents were youngsters growing during the Great Depression and their frugal living was passed on to us boys.  The times have changed.

2 Timothy 3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:

2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,

4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts,

7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

If you consider these words Paul penned to Timothy, we must be moving into these perilous times.  You could take each description or category and assign it to multiple news stories of today.  Just yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court deemed  same-sex marriage legal throughout the land.  This goes totally against the historic moral fiber of the country and nobody can deny it.  Neither can you argue that we have “progressed” in our thinking.  From a pure scientific view, same sex marriage does not produce offspring, a fundamental expression of life on this planet.  THE CREATOR of Heaven and earth did not design life to operate in this manner.  It is self-evident yet mankind has become lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of GOD.

Lovers of money are in the midst of wrecking the global economy.  Unholy, unloving, and brutal individuals are promoting violence against children.  Traitors take an oath to the Constitution of the United States and then immediately take bribes in various forms to compromise their office.  Various officials end their speeches with the phrase “GOD bless America” yet in private they commit lawlessness against the average citizens who elected them.

Men have become self-absorbed and are willing to sacrifice anyone and anything in order to satisfy their lusts.  Why does this country as well as others have a drug problem?  Because there is great demand to escape the emptiness found in the souls of men and women.  If there was no demand, the drug lords would be out of business.  Demand is the issue.

A great percentage of television commercials are pharmaceutical ads.  Rather than seeking FATHER for a solution, men seek out doctors who will prescribe a band-aid to mask the symptoms, never really dealing with the source of the problem.  What a mess!

Sin and lawlessness have crept into the fabric of society and this condition is not new.  Throughout history we find parallels and each time the system fails.  This time will be no different and FATHER will judge this country as well as others.  HIS longsuffering is surely about to end and HIS remnant continues to prepare in anticipation of this judgment.  “Self” is being eradicated at a personal level and full submission to FATHER’S commands has replaced the flesh in its attempt to maintain control.  Those who have been called look back in disgust when their decisions were based on the flesh and exclaim “What was the point?”.  They see the emptiness of those fleshly desires and are glad to be rid of them.  They understand it was all part of their training.

FATHER always has a solution to the ugly situation brought about by ungodly men.  HE is in the deliverance and restoration business.  Be assured that the end of the current system is not the end of the world.  There will be a severe pruning and the sin and lawlessness will be exposed.  Some will embrace it while others will deny it until the day of reckoning.  Both groups will experience some pain.  Those who walk in Love will be raised up as a standard for the rest of mankind to observe and come to the realization that the righteous judgment of FATHER is necessary in order to cleanse them of their unrighteousness.  It’s all good.

We Must Walk in Faith

Friday, June 26th, 2015

"The Times They Are a-Changin’" as the song goes.  The world is in a state of change in all areas- social, political, economic, and most of all Spiritual.  In the past we were able to focus on simple topics at an elementary level.  The message of hope, faith, and Love could be taught in a rather stable environment.  But now we are quickly moving to a major global shift in life as we know it and if your foundation is built on sand, your house is about to go through a frontal assault.

If you are expecting to be a full expression of FATHER’S Love, you will be required to walk in faith and you will surely be tested.  As you are challenged by others who will take an un-defendable position, you will simply Love them and forgive them as they confront or shun you, depending on their modus operandi.  When you challenge people’s religious doctrine, they get defensive and typically try to discredit the messenger and will use the various means at their disposal to rationalize why you are wrong.  They will use isolated Biblical passages as the foundation of their overall doctrine.  FATHER has a way of being a “doctrine buster”.  He’s busted plenty of mine over the years.

Your walk of faith will not be popular or embraced by the masses.  It there is a lesson to be learned at the cross, most of Jesus’ staff were missing from the event.  The Beloved Disciple John was the exception.  Love does not hesitate to show up when the challenge and confrontation arrive.  In Isaiah chapter 50:

8 ​​He is near who justifies Me;

​​Who will contend with Me?

​​Let us stand together.

​​Who is My adversary?

​​Let him come near Me.

FATHER is always near and will vindicate us as we are challenged by others.  As we hear HIS WORD and speak it forth, we must stand fast as HIS WORD goes forth and accomplishes that which HE sent it to do.  When we are fully mature, we no longer concern ourselves with the antagonistic words of our adversaries.  We simply forgive them and go on with our calling.  We trust that everything FATHER is exposing us to is meant to be a part of our walk here on earth.  We wake up in anticipation of our daily interactions with HIM.  We embrace the fullness of the day and look for opportunities to share HIS Love with others.  We look forward to serving mankind rather than looking to exploit others as the old man was motivated to do.

On a daily basis I am confronted by yet another indication of the rough waters ahead for mankind.  I know it is not the end of the world but it is clear that there is a major confrontation ahead.  You can be sure that major changes will accompany the confrontation.  I have heard a multitude of opinions of how and when it will occur.  My response is to prepare given the resources available to me.  I am not afraid of what lies ahead for FATHER has prepared me to overcome the fear of the unknown.  We all must trust in HIS Love for us and know that HE will work out the details as we navigate through the times ahead.

FATHER’S Plan trumps man’s intended outcomes.  Throughout Scripture we find a common theme- mankind goes astray and FATHER comes to the rescue.  Thankfully HE is the Author of patience.  Thankfully HE has revealed HIMSELF to us and imparting faith to us through HIS WORD in a timely fashion.

There are many “watch dates” ahead but frankly every day is a watch date for me.  I am focusing on hearing HIM today and receiving whatever HE has for me today.  My focus is for me to change internally, knowing that the external is HIS responsibility.  As I change internally and become fully mature IN HIM, HE will utilize me to deal with the external.  Think not that you can rest on some revelation of the past and expect to be of service today.  We are in a dynamic time and FATHER is in continuous communication with those who are walking in faith and expecting to hear HIM today.  Let the words of Psalm 27 comfort us as we proceed though the challenges ahead:

11 ​​Teach me Your way, O LORD,

​​And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.

12 ​​Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;

​​For false witnesses have risen against me,

​​And such as breathe out violence.

13 ​​I would have lost heart, unless I had believed

​​That I would see the goodness of the LORD

​​In the land of the living.

​14 ​​Wait on the LORD; ​​Be of good courage,

​​And He shall strengthen your heart;

​​Wait, I say, on the LORD!

Thank You

I want to simply say “Thank You” to those who have responded with financial assistance to help those in need.  We trust that good seed is being planted and will in turn produce good fruit.

Failure of Money

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

In the Book of Beginnings (Genesis) Chapter 47 we find that Joseph had been made Governor over Egypt and the famine was in full swing.  When times are tough our priorities change dramatically.  Our perceptions now align with reality for the illusions evaporate with amazing speed.

In the Tech bubble of 1999-2000, money evaporated in terms of perceived stock values in the various technology stocks.  I remember that the valuations of various Internet stocks were astronomical.  Typically, stock prices are valued on current and future earnings.  During the bubble, prices were based on a pipe dream of future earnings… a pure illusion that was totally disconnected from reality.  Once men and women returned to reality, the bubble burst and money effectively evaporated.  A portfolio valued at $10,000 could have easily dropped to $500 and some did.  I knew a young man without any finance background or experience who lost $10,000 of his $15,000 investment when the bubble burst.

Fast forward to the bubble of 2007-2008.  Once again asset valuations had increased.  Housing had become a bubble.  Liar loans were packaged as high quality investments and insurance was taken out on these instruments.  Leveraged investments were the gambling devices of the financial industry.  Once again, mania and illusion replaced common sense.  When the bubble burst, the Federal Reserve and other central banks came to the rescue for the “too big to fail” institutions.  Vice President Biden revealed that the U.S. was close to marshal law at one point.

Seven years later, we are at another inflection point.  This time the bubble is the biggest of all- a global currency bubble and a bond market bubble.  Investment managers have purchased “insurance” in the form of derivatives as a perceived backstop to any loss.  The problem is the same as it was in 2008.  If the issuer of the derivative insurance is unable to pay, the insurance is no good.  So you have losses on all sides.  The current levels of “insurance” exceed anyone’s ability to pay off if the current bubble bursts.  What would happen if an adverse economic event occurs?  The failure of money.  Is this unprecedented?  No.  Back to Genesis 47:

15 So when the money failed in the land of Egypt and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came to Joseph and said, “Give us bread, for why should we die in your presence? For the money has failed.”

16 Then Joseph said, “Give your livestock, and I will give you bread for your livestock, if the money is gone.” 17 So they brought their livestock to Joseph, and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for the horses, the flocks, the cattle of the herds, and for the donkeys. Thus he fed them with bread in exchange for all their livestock that year.

Failure of money does not mean the end of civilization.   It simply means the end of a perceived and accepted medium of exchange that has failed.  People will find tangible value to exchange for food.  When money fails, food becomes the most important medium of exchange.  Expensive cars and homes dramatically decline in value.  The non-essential items become worthless.  Only those assets that promote life are of value.

This coming fall is a potential culmination point when illusion meets reality.  The central banks have been propping up the markets by printing more money with declining value in hope of maintaining the illusion of growth and prosperity.  The middle class is not responding and is now trying to save rather than consume.  The poor as a percentage of the overall population is increasing and need greater financial assistance.  The wealthy (top 1%) are busy bidding up prices on collectibles.  The overall productiveness of society is declining and cannot support the current massive bubble.

When will the current money fail?  It could be as early as today but it could somehow be postponed for months or a few years.  Mathematically there is no way out of the bubble except for hyperinflation which is the precursor to monetary failure.

Joseph was given the mandate to store food in anticipation of the famine.  By responding to his calling, his family made it through the famine and the great reset of the monetary system of Egypt.  Gold and silver ultimately became the medium of exchange after the famine ended.  A few days ago, former Congressman Ron Paul issued a warning.  He spoke about the reality of where we are at today and I believe his assessment is “spot on”.  You can watch his presentation at:  He gives you the eminent warning signs at the end of the presentation.

If we ignore the potential for failure of the reserve currency of the world, it is at our peril.  The current financial system is plagued by lawlessness and I personally don’t believe that FATHER let it continue much longer.  Of course, the central bankers think they are the smartest and wisest people on earth.  Their attitude will be their downfall.  Only FATHER knows the timing!

The Great Mystery

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

Paul wrote in 1 Timothy chapter 3:

14 These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly; 15 but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness:

​​​GOD was manifested in the flesh,

​​Justified in the Spirit,

​​Seen by angels,

​​Preached among the Gentiles,

​​Believed on in the world,

​​Received up in glory.

If there is any one mystery found among mankind that must completely defy man’s intellect and understanding, it is that GOD was manifested in the flesh.  HE descended from the highest realm into the physical realm and walked among men.  All other religions and doctrines may contain lesser mysteries but none are as great as this mystery.  Yet most people have little or no comprehension of the magnitude of this mystery.  All power and authority in Heaven and earth walked among men on this small blue planet amidst a small galaxy placed within a cluster of galaxies.  The human mind cannot grasp the magnitude of this mystery.

Jesus Christ was declared and confirmed to be the Son of FATHER to all mankind.  His resurrection separated Him from all others who have been exalted among religions.  His tomb is empty!  If we would only contemplate the brevity of what Our LORD did for us, we would begin our day with great gratitude and reverence for simply being alive IN HIM!  How is it possible that our flesh can have such power to dilute such a great mystery?

We read the various stories in Scripture as though they are mini-novels and actually did not occur.  We read of the great judgments that have come on mankind as though they could not happen in this high-tech world.  In the biggest of pictures we are but a small dot on the canvas.  You need only to look out the window and see the beauty, complexity,  and equilibrium of nature in order to comprehend HIS Majesty and wisdom.  Behold the Great Mystery and let Love permeate every cell of your body.  Set aside petty differences and offences; be grateful that you have been given such an opportunity to experience life.  Rise above “self” and look toward the purpose given to you by FATHER and start walking in it.  Quit defending an un-defendable position or doctrine that exalts you above others in some fashion.  Jesus made Himself of no reputation yet men compete for position.  Unbelievable!  Entitlement is a doctrine perpetuated by the ego meant to exalt you to idol status.  Tear down those idols!  Be grateful that FATHER has provided the air you breathe and has sustained you to this very moment.  Let us come in true reverence before HIS Throne as this great mystery is being revealed to us in a much greater degree and fashion.  Let us not be lackadaisical in our worship of FATHER.  Consider the words in Psalm 8:

1 O LORD, our Lord,

​​How excellent is Your name in all the earth,

​​Who have set Your glory above the heavens!

2 ​​Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants

​​You have ordained strength,

​​Because of Your enemies,

​​That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

3 ​​When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,

​​The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,

4 ​​What is man that You are mindful of him,

​​And the son of man that You visit him?

5 ​​For You have made him a little lower than the angels,

​​And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

6 ​​You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;

​​You have put all things under his feet,

7 ​​All sheep and oxen—

​​Even the beasts of the field,

8 ​​The birds of the air,

​​And the fish of the sea

​​That pass through the paths of the seas.

9 ​​O LORD, our Lord,

​​How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

In the Center

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

Romans 7:22 For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man, 23 but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.   NASB

At the center of my being is the inner man and moving outward are my members.  Your Spiritual heart is where this inner man is located and it is where you are connected with FATHER.  This is where the forces of life come forth.  The term “mind” is used to express many facets but we must not assign this term only to the brain.  This Greek term is defined as:

  1. the mind, comprising alike the faculties of perceiving and understanding and those of feeling, judging, determining

    1. the intellectual faculty, the understanding

    2. reason in the narrower sense, as the capacity for spiritual truth, the higher powers of the soul, the faculty of perceiving divine things, of recognizing goodness and of hating evil

    3. the power of considering and judging soberly, calmly and impartially

  2. a particular mode of thinking and judging, i.e thoughts, feelings, purposes, desires

Your Spiritual mind can discern good and evil and must be developed accordingly.  As we set aside human logic and meditate on HIS Word, our Spiritual mind grows and we are open to hearing HIS Word to us.  We must develop this Spiritual mind by reading and meditating on HIS Word in a consistent manner.  When Joshua came into the fullness of his calling, FATHER gave him specific instructions:

Joshua 1:7 “Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.

8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.

9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

We must not be “void” of HIS Word but should also meditate on it day and night.  Don’t read other materials at the expense of HIS Word.  Don’t replace HIS Word with men’s opinions of HIS Word.  Are you feeling Spiritually weak?  Read the words Jesus spoke in the Gospels.  Are you feeling like your Love is lacking?  Read the Gospel of John and the three Epistles.  Read 1 Corinthians chapter 13.  Plant good seed and you will yield good fruit.

The inner man is highly protected from misuse.  The power connection with FATHER is not one than can be circumvented by the flesh and be used for lawless means.  The Word cleanses and purifies us and we must let it do its job.  Joshua was given the key to prosperity and success as he was about to enter the Promised Land.  That key will work for each of us in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead.  We need to be ever aware of the connection found in the inner man and nurture that connection so that the Spiritual flow will come forth without hindrance.  Let forgiveness prevail in your life so that the flow is not blocked.  Let go of the tendency to judge others.  We must get the beam out of our own eye.  Do not be moved by the lawlessness for FATHER will balance the scales soon enough.  Focus on your own “center” and let the flow of THE SPIRIT increase in your life.  You are the only one who can affect that flow for it cannot be controlled or accessed by anyone else.

Proverbs 4:23  Watch over your heart with all diligence,
For from it flow the springs of life.
