Another Mission of Love

Monday, August 31st, 2015

I have been called on another “mission” of Love and will be unable to write for a few days.  If you are moved upon to pray for this mission, FATHER knows the details and will honor the unity of your prayer with this mission of restoration.  Only the “Zeal of THE LORD” causes me to go on these missions for my own zeal to help FATHER out (as though HE needed it) has long passed.  I live and have my being IN HIM thus when HE says “Go”, I go.  Otherwise, I  stay. 

As the saying goes “Some were sent and others just went”.  I seek to only be “sent” knowing that FATHER will lead the way.

Word for Today

1 Corinthians 16:

13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.

14  Do everything in love.

The Bookends

Saturday, August 29th, 2015

In the last twelve months there has been a prevailing theme of bookends which I became aware while visiting my cousin on Fox Island, Washington State.  As usual, my wife unknowingly alerted me to the subtlety of what was going on.  We started getting closure on many “cycles” of varying lengths.  The second bookend was being placed as a reference point of completion.  In an increasing frequency, bookends are being set and loose ends are being unexpectedly resolved.  As we purpose to walk fully submitted to FATHER’S SPIRIT, things and issues get removed from us and we able to walk in a freedom not experienced until now.  We finally come to the end of ourselves and let FATHER work things out on our behalf.  We begin to move and have our being IN HIM.

On August 10th, a notable activation in the Spiritual occurred that I have yet to fully comprehend.  The other bookend to an activation is an authentication.  Let me explain by an example in Acts.  I am now fully convinced that before the Day of Pentecost was to manifest, a couple of bookends had to be established.  A bookend can complete one phase and begin another phase.  In Acts chapter 1, Jesus had just completed 40 days of instruction with the disciples and had ascended.  Now they are all in one accord waiting on the Promise:

12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey.

13 And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas the son of James.

14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

The only way for about 120 people to be in unity is to look to FATHER’S perfect plan and will as the basis of their focus and belief.  Without any disputing:

15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples

As my friend Kemper appropriately noted, this represents the pillar of Truth being raised up and a pillar is like a “bookend”.  Of a Truth did they need to replace Judas as the 12th disciple prior to the Day of Pentecost and not have the office of treasurer be left vacant.  This tells us that FATHER’S government will not be incomplete and the treasury is as important to HIM as any other office in HIS Kingdom.  Only after the office had been filled would everything be in place for the next Age to come forth.  The pillar of Truth must be raised up prior to manifestation of that fateful day.

But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel

Soon after filling the treasurer position, the Day of Pentecost was at hand.  An authentication of what had been spoken of (activated) the the Holy Spirit would now be observed by mankind:

Acts 2:1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.

3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Once again the pillar of Truth arose and revealed what was happening:

14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words.

15 For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day.

16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

In this short time, the bookend completing the “government” aspect of the Kingdom by restoring the 12 disciple had been activated and authenticated by the second time when Peter stood up with “the eleven”, not “the ten”.  Secondly, the bookend of what was spoken by the prophet Joel (activated) was now being authenticated.

I am now anticipating further activations are now at hand.  When FATHER activates callings, it is because there is a need arising that must have these callings in place.  These activations will minister life during any form or type of judgment coming upon the earth.  FATHER always has a remnant in place to lead people from death to life.  This time will be no different.  HE will place the appropriate bookend in place and leave no loose ends for us to deal with on our own.

The Vision in the Dream

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Early this morning I had a vision in a dream, somewhat unusual for me.  A whirlpool is a similar phenomenon to a whirlwind, one is made up of air and the other is of water.  Sine water represents FATHER’S Word, I was led to the following in Proverbs chapter 1:

24 ​​Because I have called and you refused,

​​I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,

25 ​​Because you disdained all my counsel,

​​And would have none of my rebuke,

26 ​​I also will laugh at your calamity;

​​I will mock when your terror comes,

27 ​​When your terror comes like a storm,

​​And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,

​​When distress and anguish come upon you.

28 ​​“Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;

​​They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.

29 ​​Because they hated knowledge

​​And did not choose the fear of the LORD,

30 ​​They would have none of my counsel

​​And despised my every rebuke.

31 ​​Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way,

​​And be filled to the full with their own fancies.

32 ​​For the turning away of the simple will slay them,

​​And the complacency of fools will destroy them;

33 ​​But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,

​​And will be secure, without fear of evil.”

The above passage summarizes what I observed happening in the vision of the dream.  This whirlpool was sucking up people and things as though they were being flushed down a natural drain.  The water filled the city and was impassible.  I was on high enough ground where I was unaffected by the event but watched in awe.  I awoke a couple of times and knew  it was important to remember this dream and as I fell back asleep it continued.  There was no fear in my heart and I am thankful for that.  The vision was devastating and no one was able to control this whirlpool.  Some watched but many perished as people and objects were being pulled into the vortex and out of sight.

Let FATHER minister to you concerning any interpretation of this and I would strongly urge you to dwell on what HE shows you.  I am only to report it.

An Expression of Love

Thursday, August 27th, 2015

Paul wrote in Philippians chapter 1:

24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you.

As we mature in Christ, we take on His qualities of service to mankind.  Moreover we take on His character of Love which surpasses the desire to depart for “self” interests.  Paul understood this as he knew the rewards of his ultimate departure.

FATHER has a plan that is unfolding at this very hour.  HE is expecting each of us to fulfill our individual callings as HIS plan is fully revealed.  Yes, HE is keeping the details to HIMSELF at this hour and does not need anyone attempting to logically respond to the outworking of HIS plan.  When men get involved with their own understanding, they tend to mess up a Divinely constructed plan.  FATHER takes into account men’s attempts to “help”.

There are two aspects at a personal level we each should be aware of: activation and authentication.  When Jesus turned 30 years old, FATHER activated Him.  At the River Jordan FATHER authenticated Him as written in Matthew chapter 3:

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him.

14 And John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?”

15 But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him. (Baptism of water)

16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.  (Baptism of The Holy Spirit)

17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Baptism of Love)

Jesus was now fully authenticated to fulfill His calling.  FATHER did the same for Paul.  In Acts chapter 9, Paul was activated:

3 As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven.

4 Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

5 And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”

Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”

6 So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?”

Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Paul was being activated while he was the known enemy of Christians.  This should be comforting to each of us that FATHER will use anyone to do HIS bidding.  FATHER has not forgotten you or me but at the appropriate time, HE will fully activate us in accordance with HIS plan.  There are different activations relative to the different needs.  You may be temporarily activated in your maturing process only to be “deactivated” until a later time.

Paul’s authentication came by the hand of Ananias:

17 And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”

18 Immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he received his sight at once; and he arose and was baptized.

Paul’s eyes were “opened” both physically and spiritually.  He could now see what FATHER wanted him to do.  As Paul spent time with FATHER, he knew that beyond the flesh was a more wondrous life but Paul resisted “self” and pursued FATHER’S Will and plan for his life.  He knew that at the appointed time, FATHER would take him.

In the days ahead, there will be a temptation by many to be removed from the challenges here on earth.  We need to trust FATHER that HE will determine our appointed time to depart and thus we need to fully embrace what is set before us.  As we live and have our being IN HIM, HE will guide us through the challenges.  What should I focus on today?  Whatever is in front of me.  FATHER will move each of us into position as HE activates and authenticates us.  Little did Paul know when he headed out on the road to Damascus that his life would change in an instant.  FATHER has no problem in changing your life as quickly.  Be prepared, look up!

Higher Qualifications

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

The greater responsibility in the Kingdom requires higher qualifications.  This is now a delicate subject among those who seek to chosen for service in the Kingdom and  past acts of  immaturity are not disqualifiers or none of us would make it.  However we must set aside and turn away from those acts of unrighteousness and be cleansed by HIS Blood.  You only need to look at Paul who was Saul to be assured that FATHER will use whomever HE will, no matter what has happened in their past.

In 1 Timothy chapter 3, Paul writes about qualifications to be an overseer:

12 Let deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

13 For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

A deacon is one who cares for the poor and has charge of and distributes the money collected for their use.  Where does this money originate?  From those with funds who are classified as cheerful givers.  The deacon is effectively the “go between” of those with funds and those without.  The deacon effectively acts as a treasurer in that he receives and distributes funds according to the need.  This office MUST operate by the revelation of Love and know when to appropriately distribute to the poor, not an easy task.

Can a deacon function without an inflow of funds?  If the treasury is empty, the poor go hungry.  In the U.S., greed among the “Christians” is what led to the establishment of government entitlement programs.  Had the church done its job, the food stamp program would have never been created.  The church lost its first Love and then lost its ability to carry out this critical function.

The Apostle Paul disagrees with the Supreme Court’s latest decision on same sex marriage.  According to the above passage as well as others, those who have redefined the family structure would not be qualified to greater responsibilities in the Body.  Once you depart from FATHER’S definitions, you lack the qualifications to oversee others for the Kingdom.  Redefining terms does not change reality.

A great boldness is coming and in some cases is here.  No longer is FATHER looking the other way concerning unrighteous activity.  I am seeing the standard of Truth being raised for all to be judged accordingly.  Men will soon by judged by their own words as their hearts are being revealed and exposed for all to see.  A great cleansing may soon result as judgment sweeps across nations and men lose faith in their idols.

How can I be counted among those worthy to be called into service?  I believe that first and foremost you must have a direct and intimate relationship with FATHER.  You must line up with HIS Character of Love.  As this occurs, you are able to carry out HIS Divine Intent in the calling HE has assigned you.  If you are given assets to oversee, you will not be moved by the size or composition of those assets but understand that they are a means to help others.

Exciting times are ahead for those who have fully aligned themselves with FATHER’S Plan.  As HE directs, you will be astounded when the doors open to minister to others.  Each day will be refreshing as HIS SPIRIT guides you to minister life in whatever form it take.  Those who satisfy the higher qualification are those whose revelation of Love has matured to the point where they walk in the assurance of being HIS mature sons.  People will be drawn to those who have been chosen to usher in this next phase of FATHER’S plan.

Repay no evil with evil

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

The Apostle Paul had been on both sides of the fence, he had been among those in authority over the system as well as those who were seen as opposing the system.  In Romans chapter 12 he wrote:

17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.

18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.

19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 Therefore

​​​“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;

​​If he is thirsty, give him a drink;

​​For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”

In the times ahead there will plenty of opportunities to repay evil for evil as men’s hearts are being exposed but we should continue our walk in peace and let FATHER handle the judgment and correction.  Only FATHER knows precisely what is required to balance the scales and needs no assistance from any of us to find that perfect balance.  If you or I attempt to take matters into our own hands, the proper recompense would not be achieved.  We are to be vessels of Love and feed the hungry no matter how we feel about their past.  They are HIS creation, not ours.

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Be in constant pursuit of overcoming evil with good for this is what Love does.  World events appear to be reaching a crescendo and there will be plenty of evil uncovered as the current system collapses.  Nobody wants more of the same thus FATHER has been preparing those who would walk in righteousness to be raised up in HIS Power and Authority.  Their motivation is to serve mankind rather than exploit the weak, the poor, and the hungry.  “Not my will but YOUR Will be done FATHER.”

Jesus was not moved by circumstances.  He was consistently challenged by the Pharisees yet He did not call forth 10,000 angels.  Instead of using force, He overcame the world by Love.  We must do the same.  In Romans chapter 13, Paul continues the call for peace:

1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.

2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.

Do you think FATHER is surprised by the current state of the system?  Do you think that men had the autonomous power to place certain men in authority beyond FATHER’S overall sovereignty?  FATHER allows men to ensnare themselves so as to reveal their hearts to themselves and others.  We must fully accept the fact that FATHER has a plan in place to rectify all the misdeeds of men and place our trust IN HIM, not leaning on our own understanding.

The term “unintended consequences” will be used frequently as the current system collapses.  Why?  The global system is too complex for any group of men and women to properly oversee.  They have built complexity to the point of collapse.  Knowing this, each of us MUST seek FATHER and HIS specific Will and Plan for our individual walk.  After Jesus had received the three baptisms at the Jordan river, Matthew writes in chapter 4:

1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

This clearly goes against our survival instinct yet Jesus submitted to FATHER’S Spirit and accomplished the plan.  We too must be led by HIS Spirit in order to fulfill HIS plan for us.  Don’t be swayed by what you hear on television or read in the media.  Men’s opinions can change in an atomic moment.  So called experts are but ants in the big picture and we must place our trust in FATHER, the only true Expert.

Let Love be your guide as your are confronted with evil.  Evil will be exposed at an increasing rate as we proceed forward towards the Day of Judgment.  What’s the point of personal vengeance?  All it does is temporarily satisfy your ego.  FATHER’S judgment is designed to perfectly restore mankind whereas man’s judgment is designed to destroy the enemy and place him in everlasting hell and  damnation.  Let us not repay evil with evil.

The Hidden Disciple

Monday, August 24th, 2015

There has been some debate among Biblical scholars about who should have been the 12th disciple to replace Judas Iscariot and some say it should have been Paul.  I don’t recall ever hearing a message about Matthias, the 12th disciple.  Jesus had just spent 40 days with the disciples as recorded in Acts chapter 1:

after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, 3 to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

Surely during that 40 day period, the issue of the 12th disciple must have been covered.  Think about spending nearly six weeks with anybody you know.  There would have been a multitude of discussion topics and the disciples would have taken every opportunity to have any and all questions answered.  Soon after Jesus’ Ascension Peter spoke to the others about this very issue:

15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples(altogether the number of names was about a hundred and twenty), and said,

16 “Men and brethren, this Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus; 17 for he was numbered with us and obtained a part in this ministry.”

Peter quoted portions of Psalms as justification for replacing Judas:

20 “For it is written in the Book of Psalms:

​​‘​Let his dwelling place be desolate,

​​And let no one live in it’; (Psalm 69:25)


​​‘​Let another take his office.’  (Psalm 109:8)

Where and when did Peter get understanding about applying these two verses to Judas?  I believe Jesus had to reveal this to him for Peter had been a fisherman, not an Old Testament scholar.  What led the disciples to narrow the choices from nearly 120 down to 2?  Peter then gave a specific requirement to be included as a possible candidate:

21 “Therefore, of these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, 22 beginning from the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection.”

The candidate must have been with them throughout the last 3 1/2 years of Jesus’ ministry which began at Jesus’ baptism by John and was continuous to the day of Ascension.  Yet we never heard any mention of either Barsabas or Matthias:

23 And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.

Both of these men met the qualifications yet neither were mentioned anywhere in the Gospels.  Both had effectively been hidden in plain sight.  Finally, the selection is made:

24 And they prayed and said,

“You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen 25 to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.”

26 And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

Notice that Peter found it necessary to conclude this business before the Day of Pentecost.  A new treasurer had to be selected to replace the previous one.  Greed was found in Judas and he was disqualified to be counted among the twelve disciples.  The office of Treasurer had to be filled with a righteous man who had been hidden among them for the last 3 1/2 years.  The name Matthias means “Gift of GOD”.  It is derived from the Hebrew name”  Mattathias or Mattithiah = "gift of Jehovah".

Is there a confirmation that Matthias was the right one to replace Judas?  I believe so.  In 1 Chronicles chapter 9:

31 Mattithiah of the Levites, the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the trusted office over the things that were baked in the pans (was entrusted with baking the bread used in the offerings).

He was trusted with the bread offerings and we now coincidentally use the slang term “bread” for money.

Today’s Application

People are looking for FATHER’S Divine Government to be set up and I would suggest the last phase of Divine Government required to be in place is the Treasury and those who can be trusted to oversee it.  Peter found it necessary to fill the office of treasurer before the fullness of Pentecost.   Must it also be filled before the fullness of Tabernacles will occur?  Mystery Babylon is funded by the unrighteous mammon and their source of income must be dried up and replaced with the true riches of Heaven.  Only those who are motivated by Love can be fully trusted with the wealth of Heaven in whatever form it manifests.

Matthias quietly fulfilled the office of Treasurer without any fanfare.  I am sure he was there when Ananias and Sapphira gave a diluted portion of their assets to the disciples.  There are some offices called to be at the forefront and others do a hidden work in the background.  Both are equally important to FATHER.  It’s okay to be one of the “hidden” disciples.

Unrestrained Actions of Mankind

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Proverbs 29:18 

Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;

​​But happy is he who keeps the law.

Our Heavenly Father’s Word is for our benefit and if we meditate on it day and night, we will prosper.  On the other hand if we set it aside, we will promote judgment in our lives.  FATHER’S Word is written in such a way as to promote revelation and vision as we are able to see beyond our current circumstances in the physical world.  The 613 commandments and statutes have relevance today more than ever.  Disease and sickness among our children are a direct consequence of the unrestrained tampering with genetics and the environment.  Agent Orange used by the military in Vietnam has taken a substantial toll our our servicemen even today.  My bother-in-law was one of many who died from Agent Orange complications.  After years of denial, the heads of the military were forced to acknowledge the reality.

Cycles occur in nature like clockwork.  Tampering with cycles will create adverse reactions and we will soon find out how severe the reaction will be as the economic cycle unwinds the sustained intervention.  Man thinks that he is smarter than FATHER and previous generations.  Such arrogance will be exposed soon.

Tattoos generally create an illusion that you are a different person than FATHER created.  On a recent trip, we were unexpectedly exposed to many people who had tattoos of all kinds.  The metal required to keep a tattoo in its proper shape will surely have repercussions in the electrical system of the individual sometime in the future.  Tampering with the body’s electrical system may facilitate cancer and other life threatening diseases (per Dr. Speckhart’s observations).

Pharmaceutical companies are promoting abusive restrictions of ingredient certification in the supplement industry.  The intent is to eliminate competition and eventually increase prices and profits for the remaining participants which will only be the large, well-funded corporations.  If left unrestrained, you will pay much more for vitamins and supplements.  Rather than serving mankind, they seek to exploit mankind with greed at its worst.  When taking the drug in pharmaceutical trials results in death, they use the term “unintended consequences” as though redefining the term “killing” will somehow justify the end result.

I believe the solution to the unrestrained actions of mankind is at hand.  There will be some kind of “black swan” event which will cause the current “unrestrained” system to collapse and mankind will begin crying out to Heaven for a solution to the woes that have come upon the earth.  FATHER has been preparing a remnant who are fully committed to HIM who will be light in the darkness.  It has been prophesied that football stadiums will become venues for those who are desperate to hear the Word for they will be unable to buy a sporting event ticket and the stadiums would otherwise be empty.

I urge us all to press in daily to FATHER’S Word and seek a personal vibrant relationship with HIM.  As a result, revelation will abound in your life.  You will not seek to project an illusion of being someone else but simply seek the fullness of your calling.  Your life will become simpler and more fulfilling.  Your eyes will be opened to the realities that are set before you and will not be sucked in to the empty promises of the current system.  You will be happy no matter what the circumstance!  You will be placed in a position for FATHER to prosper you.  You will have prophetic dreams and visions as needed.  You will be comforted by the revelation from FATHER as HE unfolds HIS Plan in your life.

3 John 2  Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

Ugliness in the Markets

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

I warned a friend about being fully invested in the market on Wednesday and he lost a notable amount by Friday PM.  Margin calls have surely been issued and will require those who operate in that arena to come up with cash.  An obvious source of cash are other securities in their portfolio.  If sold, this could lead to a further drop come Monday.  Even Grandma’s jewels are a source of cash when the “margin man” comes calling.

It would not be surprising to see some temporary recovery during this week in hope of calming the market down.  However fear is a greater force than greed and we will see how much it grips the market in the upcoming days ahead.

Since gold and silver have no attached liabilities, they will become the safe haven for many who are finally ready to cash out of the market.  The gold & silver stocks may also temporarily drop as margin accounts liquidate anything of value.  Afterward, they may finally have their day in the sun.  Only FATHER knows for sure.
