Listen To FATHER

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

I have run across many men in the past who have promoted “get rich quick” schemes, including those in the ministry.  The problem is that they want us to have faith in them and their “revelation” rather than have faith in GOD.  Their soulish man contrives what appears to be a reasonable outcome based on somehow working the current Babylonian system.  The results always tend to be the same, those on the front end make money and the vast majority lose money.


I have a file of my past bad investments as a reminder of my failure to listen to FATHER before I invested.  Some of those investments were through men claiming to hear FATHER and were willing to share the expected rewards.  When I look back at the process, I always comment to myself, “What was I thinking?”


We are to walk in Love and faith in HIM, not man.  We can only do this by seeking the Kingdom as Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 6:


 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.


FATHER may lead you to invest in a particular area and you will be richly blessed.  However, it does not mean that the next opportunity in that particular area will be equally blessed.  If HE does not tell you to invest again, you should do nothing.  Each time we are confronted with situations requesting our resources, we should ask FATHER and never assume that HIS favor will continue.  Our daily actions should be directed by FATHER.  HE has given us The Holy Spirit to lead and guide us in all areas, especially our expenditures.  It is important to be obedient in the little things we confront on a daily basis so that when something of greater magnitude confronts us, we will be at peace in the direction HE tells us to take.


If you have made a bad investment in the past thinking that it would somehow “fund the Gospel” but did never materialized, simply repent and move on.  Chalk it up to another instance of your spiritual training.  Disassociate yourself from the investment and don’t allow it to take up any more of your focus.  Redirect that focus to building your faith solely in FATHER’S Word, not the enticing words of man.

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 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.



2 And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].


It is your and my responsibility to test, examine, prove, and scrutinize any word taught to us claiming to be FATHER’S Word whether given in prophecy or teaching.  There have been many who have interjected their own beliefs and bias hoping to get others to agree with their interpretation as though FATHER will somehow endorse it.  HE will only respond to HIS Divine Intent, not man’s soulish desires.


I myself have been misled in the past but by FATHER’S great grace and mercy, HE has corrected me and returned me to HIS Way by opening my eyes to when the error first occurred.  We must not allow ourselves to be swayed by men and women who are extremely convincing and appeal to our logic and common sense.  It is up to each of us to prove what is being said and taught rather than assuming the person to be accurate.


Does a PhD or a master’s degree qualify or make a person infallible?  When I was younger, I thought I wanted an advanced degree but FATHER told me I didn’t need it.  After all, HE is the ONE who is directing my path and providing me wisdom and understanding.  Are advanced degrees bad?  Absolutely not!  However, unless one’s vocation requires the advanced degree, the benefit may be of limited value.  It certainly does not make the person superior in revelation of FATHER’S Word.  It does help in one’s vocation where greater knowledge of a topic is required.


My wife has no degree yet I find her sensitivity to THE SPIRIT has greater benefit than any advanced degree offered.  She has been proven correct in her Spiritual assessment over and over.  I would have had less challenges in the past had I paid closer attention to what The Holy Spirit was telling me through her sensitivity.  I think I finally learned my lesson.  Her faith is simple and does not require exhaustive analysis.


Let us simply prove what is claimed as revelation by reading, studying, and knowing HIS Word.  It will save us much heartache and our lives will be simpler, filled with joy.  How wonderful!

The Simplicity of Christ

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

The world continues building on complexity in every sector.  What feature can they add to a new car to satisfy the craving of the public’s sense knowledge and orientation?  Do we really need Wifi in a car while driving?


There are those who want to do the same thing to the Gospel, that is, appeal to our sense knowledge.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 11:


3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 

4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!


FATHER’S answers are simple and straightforward so that no matter what our intellect, we can fellowship with HIM.  We don’t need to focus on signs, seasons, the latest world news, etc. in order to remain in constant fellowship with FATHER.  HE will show us what signs are relevant thus we can disregard all other apparent “signs”.


Believers are constantly looking for the supernatural in the external when they only need to consider what is in them.  The Holy Spirit is as much “supernatural” as we need to fulfill our lives and purpose.  Let us focus on the true supernatural which is simply dwelling inside our bodies which is HIS Holy Temple.  How Simple!

Remain Steadfast

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Ephesians chapter 6:


 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.


It is critical to notice the plural tense of the challenges sent to us by the wicked one.  Our faith will be tested often and will definitely be unexpected at times.  Our faith must become strong and constant in our life as we will be challenged from every direction.  Our goal is to remain constant and steady as these challenges confront us.


Trust in FATHER’S Word is our foundation for our steadfast faith.  This is accomplished on a daily basis of fellowshipping in HIS Word.  The less we fellowship with HIM, the more we are moved by those fiery darts, it is that simple.


The psalmist wrote by THE SPIRIT concerning rebellious Israel in chapter 78:

37 For their heart was not steadfast with Him,

Nor were they faithful in His covenant.


Let us learn by Israel’s mistakes for we have a better covenant.  Let us simply be faithful to that Covenant provided through Jesus Christ so that our heart will remain steadfast as those fiery darts attempt to derail us.  After such an attack, we will simply smile knowing that our faith is strong and our day was not ruined by the wicked one.


Let this be an encouragement to you.  There are those of us who are being challenged, and there are those of us who will be challenged.  Be of good cheer no matter what is thrown at you for FATHER Loves both you and me.  Nothing will derail that reality!

The Bond Of Perfection

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Colossians chapter 3:


12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 

13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 

14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.


As we mature in Christ, sin and lawlessness become more apparent in all areas.  FATHER’S Wisdom exposes the error in man’s ways and thought, to the point that the obvious answer is in plain sight yet the blindness is great.  We must put on tender mercies just as FATHER has when observing man’s actions and speech for we too were guilty in our own blindness.


Less mature believers act based on unsound doctrines taught to them in the past as we must not be critical of their misguided choices but instead be a light unto them.  This is how Love responds.


Fruitlessness causes the spiritual error to surface and requires correction.  If one is constantly dealing with some form of scarcity in an area of his or her life, something needs to change in order to resolve the scarcity.  The Word is the answer, not someone’s opinion or misguided teaching.  If one is walking in Love then simply repenting and moving on to the purity of the Word is the answer.  


Do not worry about the teacher of false doctrine or the false prophet.  FATHER will repay thus we don’t need to exact revenge or punishment for being misled.  We need to simply put on Love, speak It, and walk in It.  It is the bond of perfection.

Are We Willing To Believe?

Monday, June 25th, 2018

Do you believe that we should walk in the fullness of Divine Life in a manner similar to Jesus’ earthly ministry?  Did Jesus express any words which would lead us to believe we are incapable of walking as He walked?  Jesus spoke in John chapter 14:


12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 

13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 

14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”


The problem is unbelief.  We have been redeemed by The Blood of The Lamb so we have been reckoned as fully righteous in the eyes of Our Heavenly Father.  We now have full legal rights as Sons and Daughters to operate with the same anointing as our Elder Brother, with even greater results.  FATHER is not the reluctant One, the issue lies with us.  Jesus had absolutely no doubt in FATHER’S ability or willingness to act on HIS Word.  Every time Jesus spoke HIS Word, miracles occurred.  Jesus continued:


15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 

16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 

17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 

18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.”


Notice that Jesus used the word “another” as He described the Holy Spirit’s ministry.  Both His ministry and the ministry of the Sons and Daughters utilize the same power and authority given to us by FATHER by HIS SPIRIT.  We are fully worthy because of The Blood.  We now have the full legal right to minister as Jesus minstered if we will only believe and doubt not.  Jesus further stated in Mark chapter 11:


22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 

23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 

24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.


His Words given to Him by FATHER are extremely clear and we need no in-depth word study to figure out what He meant to say.  Simply believe and doubt not.  We must quit looking at the world’s views concerning probabilities and alternatives.  Their information is based on sense knowledge, not revelation knowledge.  Every Word Jesus spoke was revealed by FATHER WHO Loves us and wants us to no longer walk in a restricted manner.  Are we willing to believe?



The GOD Of Miracles

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 5:

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

This happens to be the first miracle FATHER performed in each of us when we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Just think about this a few minutes.  HE changed our hearts and our outlook in a single moment.  When I received the baptism of The Holy Spirit, another miracle was performed in a very personal and specific manner.  HE is the GOD of Miracles whereas those who promote philosophies and religion have no miracles performed in their midst.

Jesus was accustomed to FATHER performing miracles in His ministry because Jesus only spoke the Words given to Him by FATHER as Jesus stated in John chapter 14:

10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.

11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.

The FATHER dwells in us because HIS Spirit dwells in us.  HE formed us in the womb with the Divine Intent of fellowshipping with us.  We are not to be slaves or servants, but instead we are to be Sons and Daughters.  As we mature, we should expect to work WITH FATHER, not for HIM.  HE meant for us to be in constant communion with HIM just as HE was in constant communion with Jesus when He walked the earth.  Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians chapter 1:

9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

As we take on the mature state of Christ and His anointing, we should expect miracles to be normal occurrences associated with our walk.  We should not be surprised when miracles start happening but give FATHER and Our Lord Jesus Christ the glory.  We must quit limiting FATHER’S flow in us and through us.  HE desires for us to be ambassadors of Jesus Christ with signs following.  An ambassador is an official representative of the Kingdom.  Let us embrace our inheritance and expect FATHER to confirm us to the world.  HE is not reluctant to express HIS Love through us.

Being Partakers

Saturday, June 23rd, 2018

My friend Paul who is My beloved brother in Christ, commented on yesterday’s post and mentioned 2 Peter chapter 1:


2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 

3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 

by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.


FATHER wants us to be partakers of HIS Divine Nature thus HE gave us HIS HOLY SPIRIT to dwell in us to facilitate the manifestation.  As we partake of HIS Divine Nature, we will walk as Jesus walked.  We will be fruitful in Kingdom business and work with HIM to bring forth the Kingdom.  Peter continued by THE SPIRIT:


5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 

6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 

7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 

For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ

9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.


As we walk in faith by Love, we will take on the qualities mentioned above and become fruitful in the knowledge of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Those who are not diligent will be shortsighted and eventually blind to what FATHER expects from us.  Diligence is a key to being a partaker of HIS Divine Nature.


Let us join together in this pursuit as the true Body of Christ.  His Body is made up of those who embrace the reality of being partakers of His Divine Nature and are able to function accordingly.  Jesus made it very clear as our example that we too can walk as He walked.  As He is, so are we!



Plan A

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Colossians chapter 1:


9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding


If we were not able to be full of wisdom and understanding of HIS will, The Holy Spirit would not have written this message of Love to us.  Since we have been recreated in Christ Jesus, we now have full access to FATHER’S wisdom and understanding by HIS SPIRIT thus we are “Plan A”.  There is no Plan B.


We have been given the full potential to walk totally according to FATHER’S perfect Will now, not some future date.  Men try to move our focus into the arena of hope by predicting some event in the future which will somehow evoke an impartation to turn us into what FATHER has already provided today.  Now is the time for us to embrace and manifest the potential currently residing on the inside of us.


If we begin to walk by The Holy Spirit Who has taken up residence in our bodies, then we will produce similar fruit to that of Jesus when He walked the earth producing good fruit.  Consider what Jesus said in John chapter 15:


5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 

6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 

7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 

By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.


Does a vine bear fruit?  No, the branches bear fruit.  The vine provides the life to the branches for the specific purpose of bearing fruit.  If a branch does not bear fruit, then it is pruned so that it does not use up nutrients meant for the fruit.  The nutrients of life will then be redirected to the other branches that they bear much fruit.  Every branch has the potential to bear fruit but at some point, fruit must be produced in order to remain else it is purged by fire.


Now is the time for us to be fully committed to bearing fruit.  Quit looking for some future sign which is intended to defer our focus away from the present.  We are to live by faith in Love… now!  It is time to focus on manifesting The Word in us and constantly communing with FATHER through HIS Spirit.


It is written by THE SPIRIT in Hebrews chapter 11:


6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.


It is time to be diligent and place our full priority in walking in faith.  We have received HIS nature of Love in us which was HIS Divine Intent when HE formed us in the womb.  We have received HIS Nature of faith and we are told we have HIS nature’s full potential to bring forth the Kingdom resident within us.  Let us no longer be misled but embrace this Truth.  FATHER has given HIS Word to reveal this Truth in us.  We are HIS workmanship intended to change this world so let us accept our responsibility and work with FATHER to bring forth HIS Intent.


It is up to each of us to embrace HIS Word and walk in it for we are Plan A, HIS only plan.


Spiritual versus Sensual

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

In Colossians chapter 2, Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT:


8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 

9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 

10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.


Mankind seeks alternative answers to what their senses tell them.  They spend countless hours analyzing data through their senses until they reach a point where the answer is beyond their ability to measure.  This is where their philosophy enters in, attempting to mentally determine the final solution.  Darwin did this when he expounded on his theory of evolution.  He couldn’t measure or fill in gaps of understanding so he simply injected his opinion without any facts or Truth to support him.


We who have received the Holy Spirit do not need to trust in sense knowledge but instead simply trust the Truth in Scripture.  We know the FATHER’S Word is intended for each of us and contains absolute Truth.


Each of us was specifically born with purpose by the ONE WHO originates Truth.  However, FATHER has given us the ability to experience the world around us through our senses.  If we become advanced in sense knowledge without maintaining a strong spirit, we will ultimately defer to sense knowledge for answers to our problems.  Those answers will never truly solve the problems but will only address the symptoms.  Jesus is the true Head of all principality and power.


The world continues to develop sensory enticements to redirect our focus wherever possible.  Who needs 500 cable channels for television?  Why do children want virtual reality over what is real?  Video games have become a huge industry and training people to seek war in a subtle fashion.  Children are becoming galvanized in learning to kill through video games.  In response, schools want to arm teachers rather than deal with the root of the problem.  Jesus Christ is the solution and development of our spirit by focusing on Truth in Scripture will provide the true answers to society’s maladies.


You and I are meant to embrace the life in FATHER’S Word and propagate HIS Word to the masses by word and deed.  We must not be intimidated when the enemy attempts to place obstacles before us.  FATHER is a Love GOD and HE is pleased when we have built up our faith and walk as HIS Son walked in faith.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Ephesians chapter 6:


10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 

13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.


The shield of faith protects us and the Word is our offensive weapon to deal with the world’s philosophies, ways, and demands originating through sense knowledge.  The problem always begins in the spirit realm before materializing in the physical.  We must focus on building up our Spiritual knowledge so that sense knowledge does not prevail.  This will allow us to see the source of the problem and deal with it at its source rather than simply respond to symptoms.
