Removing Unbelief

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

Luke recorded by THE SPIRIT in chapter 1:

26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,

27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.

28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”

29 But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was.

30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.

31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.

32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.

33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”

35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.

37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”

Our unbelief is the hindrance to miracles operating in our life and all the writings we present are intended to eliminate unbelief at a personal level.  There is no reason to defer to the faith of others when FATHER gave each of us the ability to walk in HIS Power and Authority.  Mary was not in any ministry nor is there any evidence of her being an expert in the Law.  She simply had found favor with Our Heavenly Father and HE blessed her.  FATHER is no respecter of persons so we can expect to be highly favored as well.

Each of us has the capacity to believe else FATHER would not have sent HIS Word to all of mankind.  When Jesus ministered on the earth, all who believed were healed.  When the disciples ministered healing, the only issue confronting their success was that of unbelief.  Jesus confirmed this in Matthew chapter 17:

14 And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying,

15 “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water.

16 So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.”

17 Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.”

18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.

19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”

20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

The world system understands the nature of man and uses it to manipulate mankind.  They will repeatedly feed you a lie until you finally believe the lie to be the truth.  This has been successfully used by the “media” for years.  They have been able to sway public opinion to support their nefarious activities for decades.  Everybody believes “something” and if it conflicts with FATHER’S Word, then you are walking in unbelief of THE TRUTH.  We are being bombarded with commercials depicting pharmaceuticals as being the answer to our ailments yet they only treat symptoms.  This alternative to FATHER’S Word concerning healing promotes unbelief.

What are we consistently dwelling on?  FATHER’S Word or the world’s alternative solutions?  Jesus told us the answer in dealing with unbelief- prayer and fasting.  By focusing on communing with FATHER and denying our flesh of external input, we will remove unbelief from our midst.  If we fully trust and rely on FATHER’s Word, nothing will be impossible.  If one spends all day exposed to the world’s opinions and just a few minutes dwelling on FATHER’S Word, what will be the result?  I find that the more time I dwell on FATHER’S Word, the less I am interested in the world’s various forms of media and their solutions to problems.  I am only interested in walking according FATHER’S miracle-working power rather than the world’s empty promises of success.  As I draw closer to FATHER, any unbelief is removed for there is no unbelief in the Throne Room.  As Jesus said “Blessed are the pure in heart, ​​For they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8)

The Age Of Healing Has Not Passed

Friday, March 29th, 2019

Our LORD GOD ALMIGHTY is a Healer.  In Exodus chapter 15, HE spoke:

There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them, 26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”

HE also spoke in Malachi chapter 3:

6 ​​“For I am the LORD, I do not change; ​​Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.


Jesus Christ healed the sick.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Hebrews chapter 13:

8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Matthew recorded by THE SPIRIT in chapter 12:

15  And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.


Jesus commanded His disciples to heal the sick.  Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 10:

5 These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans.

6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’

8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”

And Jesus spoke in John chapter 8:

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”


The early church ministered healing to the sick.  In Acts chapter 5, it is recorded by THE SPIRIT:

12 And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch.

13 Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly.

14 And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women,

15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them.

16 Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.


Jesus commissioned all believers to heal the sick.  In Mark chapter 16, Jesus spoke:

14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;

18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.

20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.


We must keep these five points before us at all times and expect to walk in the same manner as Jesus commanded: these signs will follow those who believe and they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.   As this Truth becomes fully resident in us, we will walk according to Jesus’ commandment to heal the sick.  In turn, our lights will shine in the world full of darkness for they will see the LIVING GOD endorse and validate the message of Love we possess and speak forth.  FATHER need not change, we must continue to mature and change so that indeed we are truly abiding in HIS Word at all times.  The result will be:  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free!  It is that simple.

No Exceptions

Thursday, March 28th, 2019

FATHER spoke in Exodus 15:

26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”

FATHER made a covenant with the children of Israel in the wilderness and it was based on them doing what is right in HIS sight.  However, the Israelites would fail to continue according to HIS Word and fall into sin and sickness.  They would then cry out to FATHER and through HIS mercy, HE would deliver them from their judgment.   By THE SPIRIT, it is written in Numbers chapter 21:

4 Then they journeyed from Mount Hor by the Way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way.

5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses: “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.”

6 So the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel died.

7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you; pray to the LORD that He take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people.

8 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.”

9 So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.

FATHER healed those who looked upon a brazen serpent on a pole, a type of Calvary.  Likewise, Jesus spoke in John 3:

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,

15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

If everyone who looked at the brazen serpent was healed at that time, then everyone who looks at Jesus can be healed today.  People had sinned in the wilderness and similarly, people have sinned today.  The poison serpent bite resulted in death then and the wages of sin is death today as Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 6:

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The people cried to Our Heavenly Father then and HE provided a remedy, the serpent lifted up.  Those who cry out to FATHER today have discovered that HE has provided a remedy, Christ lifted up.  The remedy was for everyone who was bitten then, and the remedy today is for whosoever believes as Jesus spoke in John chapter 3:

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved (and be made whole).

Jesus specifically tied the two events together to show us that there are no exceptions to “whoever” believes.  We have been conditioned to focus on the cross for healing of the soul without consideration of healing for the body yet Jesus Himself tied the two together before He expressed the most famous verse Christians proclaim- John 3:16.  FATHER has not changed from the time HE healed the people from the serpent’s poison to the time Jesus was lifted up.  Let us embrace the fullness of the Cross today… no exceptions!

My friend Alan wrote:

Epiphoneo.  2019.  As we continue to hear (see?) things that have previously been hidden, in plain view, I am seeing (hearing?) connections that have previously been un-connectable; at least for me. 

This morning, while again researching the implications of ‘epi-phoneo’ (Strong’s # G2019), I have seen (heard? is there a sound of light –son of luminescence- thing going on here in this thing we call epi-phoneo?) the direct connection between the name ‘Simeon’ and ‘Simon’. 

Yashua, knowing that ‘Simon’ would, because of his nature that is revealed in the name ‘Simon’, have the propensity to mimic and puppet what he had ‘heard’.  Yashua instead called this man Peter (Cephas; an Aramaic word referring to stone).  Why?  Because ‘Simon’, meaning to be swayed and moved and manipulated by what has been ‘heard’, needed to hear himself referred to as Petros, the Greek word for Kayphas (Strong’s # G2786;Cephas).  Cephas (literally, kay-phas) comes from the Hebrew ‘caph’, which is symbolized as the palm of the hand when cupped to receive and hold water, sand, grain, etc. 

The most literal understanding of this word ‘caph’ (Hebrew root verb cah-phaph, Strong’s #3721, which is described as bowing down) is that of a hollowed out rock; hard on the outside, but empty on the inside.  This is where we get our word ‘cup’; “Fill my cup (cah-phaph), Father”.  That is the most perfect description of Simon, surnamed Peter, I have ever seen; or heard; or both.  Cephas (from cah-phaph) is the picture of an empty cup, desirous to be filled with the presence of Our Father.

Psalm 145:14 is a beautiful epithet to this concept, where this word ‘cah-phaph is translated into English as “…bowed down”.  Can you see the similarity of the cupped hand with the image of bowing down?  It is describing the humbling of our hardened soul to receive the loving influence of the Holy Spirit of Truth in Love.

Are we not all ‘cah-phaph’, Cephas, a hardened vessel needing to be filled with the fullness of Our Father?  “I have called you Cephas; and on this ‘petros’/cephas’ I will build My Church”.   my paraphrase, of course.


Additionally, In Psalm 23:

5 ​​You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;

​​You anoint my head with oil;

​​My cup runs over.

6 ​​Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

​​All the days of my life;

​​And I will dwell in the house of the LORD


Careful Observance

Tuesday, March 26th, 2019

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Deuteronomy chapter 28:

1 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.”


9 “The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways.

10 Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they shall be afraid of you.”


All of FATHER’S commandments can be summed up in two commandments expressed by Our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew chapter 22:

34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together.

35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying,

36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”

37 Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

FATHER intends for us to carefully observe HIS commandments to Love.  FATHER has not changed since HE expressed the Law in Deuteronomy and the summation of the Law expressed by HIS Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Further, HE sent HIS Holy Spirit to reside in us so that we can be fully led by HIS SPIRIT in all things.  It is up to us individually to carefully observe these commandments and not allow ourselves to be moved by our logic and/or emotions to walk another path.  Technology seeks to place us in somewhat of a jail “cell” so that we would be led in another manner.  People are becoming addicted to their cell phones to the point where they are becoming unaware of their surroundings.

Technology excites the senses and draws people away from spiritual sensitivity.  I observe this every day as I drive, walk, and sit in public places.  I see people with their heads bowed… no, they are not praying… they are fixated on their cell phone screens.  It we carefully observed FATHER’S Word like people are carefully observing their cell phone output, this nation would not be heading toward widespread chaos.  Should we be fasting technology?  Just a thought!  I wonder how many people would go through severe withdrawal?  Is it possible that when the chaos arrives, people will be bowing their heads without their cell phones in their hands?

It is my intent to go before FATHER every morning in the quietness before the external stimuli can enter in.  I find this time to be invaluable to me as I seek to hear HIS Voice.  FATHER never lets me down as I write these blogs.  I plan to carefully observe HIS Commandments and hear HIS Voice so that I will fully mature and be a vessel of honor for HIS use.  Let us all ascend together in HIS Love for mankind.  Let us be careful to resist anything that would draw our attention away from careful observance of HIS Word and SPIRIT.

The Two Blind Men

Monday, March 25th, 2019

Matthew wrote by THE SPIRIT in chapter 20:

29 Now as they went out of Jericho, a great multitude followed Him.

30 And behold, two blind men sitting by the road, when they heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!”

31 Then the multitude warned them that they should be quiet; but they cried out all the more, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!”

32 So Jesus stood still and called them, and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?”

33 They said to Him, “Lord, that our eyes may be opened.”

34 So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.

And in Luke 18:

35 Then it happened, as He was coming near Jericho, that a certain blind man sat by the road begging.

36 And hearing a multitude passing by, he asked what it meant.

37 So they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.

38 And he cried out, saying, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

39 Then those who went before warned him that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

40 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He asked him,

41 saying, “What do you want Me to do for you?”  He said, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.”

42 Then Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has made you well.”

43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.

And in Mark 10:

46 Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging.

47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

48 Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

49 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called.  Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.”

50 And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus.

51 So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?”  The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.”

52 Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.

First, you have two blind men, then you have a certain blind man, and finally you have blind Bartimaeus.

Bartimaeus’ name means son of the unclean, impure, ethically, religiously, and ritually.  The above passages describe this encounter with three different facets.  Jesus healed Bartimaeus to show us FATHER’S Divine Love extends to the unclean and impure.  Jesus confirmed that the faith of Bartimaeus in Jesus Christ healed him of his blindness.  At the same time, Bartimaeus became a follower of Christ.  This depicts the two-fold salvation message of Christ.

In Matthew’s account, there were two men.  The second man is not revealed to us.  Metaphorically, blindness is an appropriate description of sin’s effect.  In Zephaniah chapter 1, The Word of the LORD which came to Zephaniah:

17 ​​“I will bring distress upon men, ​​And they shall walk like blind men, ​​Because they have sinned against the LORD; ​​Their blood shall be poured out like dust, ​​And their flesh like refuse.”

​18 ​​Neither their silver nor their gold ​​Shall be able to deliver them ​​In the day of the LORD’s wrath; ​​But the whole land shall be devoured ​​By the fire of His jealousy, ​​For He will make speedy riddance of all those who dwell in the land.

And in Deuteronomy 28:

29 And you shall grope at noonday, as a blind man gropes in darkness; you shall not prosper in your ways; you shall be only oppressed and plundered continually, and no one shall save you.

Love will heal man of spiritual and physical blindness.  Spiritual blindness has dramatically increased around the world and is in need of the Gospel of Christ like never before.  Spiritually blind men and women will be exposed by the light of the Gospel and the spiritually mature Sons and Daughters will bring forth the message of life along with the healing power from Above.  When man’s economic system fails (for gold and silver, i.e., money), mankind will come to the realization of their blind state and will cry out for mercy.  Some will attempt to silence them but their desperation will compel them to seek deliverance from blindness.  FATHER’S great Love will prevail and restore their sight.  They will become followers of Christ, glorifying Our Heavenly Father.  Prepare for a great healing to come forth as the light grows brighter!

Rejecting The Simplicity

Sunday, March 24th, 2019

In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus spoke in chapter 7:

5   So the Pharisees and scribes asked Jesus, “Why do Your disciples not live their lives according to the tradition of the elders, but [instead] eat their bread with [ceremonially] unwashed hands?”

6   He replied, “Rightly did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites (play-actors, pretenders), as it is written [in Scripture],

‘These people honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.

7   ‘They worship Me in vain [their worship is meaningless and worthless, a pretense],
Teaching the precepts of men as doctrines [giving their traditions equal weight with the Scriptures].’

8   You disregard and neglect the commandment of God, and cling[faithfully] to the tradition of men.”

9   He was also saying to them, “You are experts at setting aside and nullifying (rejecting) the commandment of God in order to keep your [man-made] tradition and regulations.

What happens when direct communion with FATHER ceases?  Tradition sets in.  What happens when man attempts to replace revelation with his own “prophetic” words, actions, and ceremonies, attempting to get FATHER to honor them as some sort of endorsement?  Tradition sets in.  Man attempts to simulate a relationship with FATHER by projecting his own heart apart from FATHER’S Word.  FATHER will not be coerced into complying with whatever proceeds out of the mouth and ceremonial actions of men and women.  Their heart is far from HIM and their words and actions tend to exalt them over the people they are attempting to gather under their “ministry”.

I could prophesy to you that the sun will set today, tomorrow, and the next day, but that does not make me a prophet of Our Heavenly Father.  I could prophesy that there will be a shooting three days from now but it does not make me a prophet.  A true prophet only speaks the Words FATHER speaks to him or her and adds nothing to FATHER’S Word.  We must be careful when it comes to responding and acting on the words of those who proclaim to be prophets.  Over the years, I have seen many who have suffered greatly because they exalted a “prophet’s” words because they were unable to hear FATHER directly.  The fruit tells the story.

FATHER did not find it necessary to produce a million word Bible to lead us to fellowship with HIM.  Within the Gospels is the key to communion with HIM.  The disciples were led by THE SPIRIT to write the epistles for our benefit.  Those epistles were non-existent except in THE SPIRIT when they were ministering the simplicity of The Gospel of Christ, yet men and women today, think they need to expand the Word into complexity thus exalting themselves above others.

Agape Love is simply the key to becoming one with FATHER.  We don’t have to go through some complex ceremony to get FATHER’S attention.  HE did not make HIS accessibility dependent on some complex formula or process that only a few can discover.  We must set aside our soulish faculties and come to HIM in the simplicity of a child expressing his or her Love.  Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 10:

13 Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them.

14 But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.

15 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.”

16 And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.

Our minds want to complicate the Gospel in order to exalt our ego above others who are less knowledgeable of the Scripture.  We must not allow ourselves to reject the simplicity of The Gospel, otherwise we will fall into the trap of tradition and ceremony.

Wisdom Speaks

Friday, March 22nd, 2019

Wisdom spoke in Proverbs chapter 3:

5 ​​Trust in the LORD with all your heart,

​​And lean not on your own understanding;

6 ​​In all your ways acknowledge Him,

​​And He shall direct your paths.

​7 ​​Do not be wise in your own eyes;

​​Fear the LORD and depart from evil.

8 ​​It will be health to your flesh,

​​And strength to your bones.

In the coming days, weeks, and months, I expect increasing volatility in all areas of the world system.  It is imperative that we listen to FATHER’S Wisdom and not allow ourselves to draw our own conclusions apart from HIS directives.  There is increasing division around the world and only FATHER can sort it all out.  The Truth will expose the lies which are abounding in all areas.  It is up to the mature Sons and Daughters of Our Heavenly Father to be a light in the midst of this volatility.  We must be vigilant and not allow ourselves to become complacent in our focus, trust, and faith.

Why Miracles?

Thursday, March 21st, 2019

People crave a miracle, they want a miracle in their life.  Jesus’ conception, His birth, His life, His ministry, His teaching, His death, His resurrection, His appearances, and His ascension were all based on miracles.  They were all astounding and undeniable miracles.  When the church began her ministry, it was based on miracles.  A stream of miracles flowed from the hands of the apostles, upsetting religious systems of that day, and even the Roman government trembled because of those miracles.

Matthew wrote by THE SPIRIT in Matthew chapter 11:

1 Now it came to pass, when Jesus finished commanding His twelve disciples, that He departed from there to teach and to preach in their cities.

2 And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples

3 and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?”

4 Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see:

5 The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

6 And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”

John the Baptist had experienced the presence of Our Heavenly Father when he baptized Jesus at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry.  He was surely aware of Jesus spending forty days in the wilderness to be tested yet he questioned Jesus’ ministry.  Why?  John was in prison and Jesus did not exercise His power to deliver John from prison.  Instead, He went to spread the Gospel to the surrounding areas according to His Divine calling.  What were the confirming signs that Jesus was The One of whom John prophesied?  The astounding and undeniable miracles!

Hebrews 13:8 declares: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever!  Without those miracles, Christianity would just be another religion of man’s traditions, ideas, and ceremonies.  In Mark chapter 7, Jesus challenged the religion void of FATHER’S Living Word:

5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”

6 He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:

​​‘​This people honors Me with their lips, ​​But their heart is far from Me.

7 ​​And in vain they worship Me, ​​Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.

What happened to FATHER’S miracle-working power among the Jews?  Their revelation was lost to religion because of their hearts.  Jesus went on to say:

8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men—the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”

9 He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.

10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’

11 But you say, ‘If a man says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban”—’ (that is, a gift to God),

12 then you no longer let him do anything for his father or his mother,

13 making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.”

When tradition replaced communion with FATHER, the miracles ceased and tradition entered in.  Religious ceremonies replaced true worship and the followers simply complied with those in charge, hoping that their ceremonies would somehow persuade FATHER to show up.  The Gospel of Christ is simple and straightforward and The Word is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  We should focus on HIS Word and remove man’s traditions and thinking from our midst.  This will put us in a position to expect HIS Miracle-working power in our life and men will be drawn to the Gospel of Christ.

Our Roadmap

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

Jesus spoke in John chapter 14:

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

This verse epitomizes FATHER’S Love for you and me.  Every book of the Bible points to this reality in some fashion.  Every prophetic Word in some manner, was to bring us to this revelation spoken by FATHER’S Son.  This verse acts as a cornerstone to our entire understanding of FATHER’S Divine Intent.  In these few words, Jesus expressed the roadmap to becoming one with FATHER so we must keep this Truth in mind in all aspects of our maturing process.  Any study that detracts from this Truth or bypasses this revelation will cause us to veer off course and become double-minded at some point.

Isn’t our deepest desire to have a totally fulfilling life?  The above verse could also be expressed “I am the Way to the Truth, to the Life promoted and fully supported by FATHER”.  By THE SPIRIT, it is written in Psalm 107:

19 ​​Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, ​​And He saved them out of their distresses.

20 ​​He sent His Word and healed them, ​​And delivered them from their destructions.

21 ​​Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, ​​And for His wonderful works to the children of men!

22 ​​Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, ​​And declare His works with rejoicing.

The above passage declares the importance of the Word to the children of Israel.  Mankind deals with death and destruction when separated from Our Heavenly Father.  History proves this unchanging Truth time and time again.  When left to their own devices, Israel left the path to Life only to find themselves in need of deliverance.  When man chooses to walk according to his own faculties (earthly wisdom, understanding, and knowledge), he ultimately finds his way to sickness, death, and destruction.  When man finally comes to the realization that his way leads him nowhere, he cries out to FATHER in some manner.

The Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in John chapter 1:

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.


14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

I believe it is critical to keep this revelation at the forefront of our consciousness at all times for it was given to us by Love’s desire to keep us on the path to Life.  This revelation deals with the source of our problem- man’s ego.  The sin nature promotes death and ultimate destruction whereas The Way directs us to Life.  Anything that promotes the exalting of oneself over others is a subtle deception which will cause us to stumble.  We must be careful when our focus is drawn away by enticing words of an alternative gospel.  The straightforward revelation spoken to us by Jesus, must be kept at the forefront of our daily walk for He is the light which keeps us on the pathway to Life.
