Psalm 91 The Passion Translation (TPT)

91 When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai,
you are hidden in the strength of God Most High.
He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold to shelter me,
the only God for me, and my great confidence.
He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy,
and he will protect you from false accusation
and any deadly curse.
His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you.
You can run under his covering of majesty and hide.
His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm.
You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night
nor have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you.
Don’t fear a thing!
Whether by night or by day, demonic danger will not trouble you,
nor will the powers of evil launched against you.
Even in a time of disaster, with thousands and thousands being killed,
you will remain unscathed and unharmed.
you will be a spectator as the wicked perish in judgment,
for they will be paid back for what they have done!
9–10 When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High,
our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm.
How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?
11 God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go,
defending you from all harm.
12 If you walk into a trap, they’ll be there for you
and keep you from stumbling.
13 You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness,[h
trampling every one of them beneath your feet!
14 For here is what the Lord has spoken to me:
“Because you have delighted in me as my great lover,
I will greatly protect you.
I will set you in a high place, safe and secure before my face.
15 I will answer your cry for help every time you pray,
and you will find and feel my presence
even in your time of pressure and trouble.
I will be your glorious hero and give you a feast.
16 You will be satisfied with a full life and with all that I do for you.
For you will enjoy the fullness of my salvation!”

Set Your Mind

Saturday, November 23rd, 2019

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 3:

1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

We are meant to be synchronized with Heaven and this occurs when we bring Heaven to earth.  First thing every morning I purpose to set my mind on things above and submit to The Holy Spirit.  Afterward, I am directed of what to write that day for your benefit… and mine.  Most of the time, I do not know beforehand what I am to write but occasionally, FATHER will tell me to focus on a particular Word or subject in preparation for the next day’s writing.

I am currently on earth to help people and express FATHER’S Love and Divine Intent to all with whom I come into contact.  I have no personal agenda to promote nor do I desire to bring any focus on me.  Our Lord Jesus Christ should be the focus and we are to “replicate” Him as mature Sons and Daughters.  It is His ministry I support and no one else’s.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Timothy chapter 2:

23 Stay away from all the foolish arguments of the immature, for these disputes will only generate more conflict. 24 For a true servant of our Lord Jesus will not be argumentative but gentle toward all and skilled in helping others see the truth, having great patience toward the immature. 25 Then with meekness you’ll be able to carefully enlighten those who argue with you so they can see God’s gracious gift of repentance and be brought to the truth. 26 This will cause them to rediscover themselves and escape from the snare of Satan who caught them in his trap so that they would carry out his purposes.

Demons promote division whereas we are commissioned to bring forth unity.  Arguments, debates, and disputes all lead to division so we must discern each situation in which we find ourselves.  We are to carefully and Lovingly enlighten the immature and those who want to argue.  Being argumentative is an indication that the person is facing opposition within himself.  FATHER’S Word is intended to remove all opposition if receive with an open heart.

In the parable of the soils, Jesus conveys to us a critical point in receiving.  In Matthew chapter 13, Jesus spoke:

11 He explained, “You’ve been given the intimate experience of insight into the hidden truths and mysteries of the realm of heaven’s kingdom, but they have not. 12 For everyone who listens with an open heart will receive progressively more revelation until he has more than enough. But those who don’t listen with an open, teachable heart, even the understanding that they think they have will be taken from them. 13 That’s why I teach the people using parables, because they think they’re looking for truth, yet because their hearts are unteachable, they never discover it. Although they will listen to me, they never fully perceive the message I speak.”

The primary issue with people maturing in The Word is the state of their heart.  One must have a open and teachable heart and, willing to listen.  If their heart is not ready to receive, they will gain no understanding thus they will not change.

Jesus continued:

14 The prophecy of Isaiah describes them perfectly:

Although they listen carefully to everything I speak,

    they don’t understand a thing I say.

    They look and pretend to see,

    but the eyes of their hearts are closed.

15 Their minds are dull and slow to perceive,

    their ears are plugged and are hard of hearing,

    and they have deliberately shut their eyes to the truth.

    Otherwise they would open their eyes to see,

    and open their ears to hear,

    and open their minds to understand.

    Then they would turn to me

    and let me instantly heal them.

We must not allow our minds to interfere with receiving a fresh revelation from FATHER.  As we are led by The Holy Spirit, we open ourselves up to perfect understanding because The Holy Spirit expresses the Divine Intent of FATHER.  What better teacher could one want?

You can set your mind on the things of the world or the revelation from Above.  Your focus will determine your outcome.

Joy is a spiritual experience whereas happiness is a soulish experience.  We need to discern the difference.

Happiness is being in the enjoyment of agreeable sensations from the possession of good; enjoying pleasure from the gratification of appetites or desires. The pleasurable sensations derived from the gratification of sensual appetites render a person temporarily happy; but he only can be esteemed really and permanently happy who enjoys peace of mind in the favor of God. To be in any degree happy we must be free from pain both of body and of mind; to be very happy we must be in the enjoyment of lively sensations of pleasure, either of body or mind.

Revelation comes through your spirit, not through your mind.  Some have used kinesiology (muscle testing of the body) in an attempt to get revelation.  The Holy Spirit does not need to communicate to us by an external means so we should be careful not to pursue revelation through some methodology focused on the external.  The Holy Spirit will always talk to you through your spirit thus your soul and body should follow your spirit, not the opposite.

When my intent aligns with FATHER’S Divine Intent, joy comes forth.  Joy comes through our relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ.  It does not merely come by us attaining a position in the Kingdom.  Moreover, life is about relationships and not about acquiring things.  Our relationship with FATHER will bring forth joy!

Worship and praise solidifies our relationship with Our Heavenly Father.  Our spirit commands our mind and body to submit to Holy worship and praise thus confirming and reinforcing the preeminence of Our Heavenly Father, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and The Most Holy Spirit in our life.  As we do this, favor from Above comes forth.  Doors open for us which were previously closed.  I have seen this reality occur countless times over the years.

Peter wrote by The Holy Spirit in 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, 4 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.

Our knowledge of FATHER and of Jesus Our Lord should be ever increasing.  As we immerse ourselves in praise and worship, HE inhabits our praise.  HIS closeness to us moves us to walk fully as partakers of the Divine nature.  Lust no longer has any effect in our lives.  Greed is no longer found among us.  Agape Love flows from our hearts to others.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Zephaniah chapter 3:

13 ​​The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness

​​And speak no lies,

​​Nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth;

​​For they shall feed their flocks and lie down,

​​And no one shall make them afraid.”

​14 ​​Sing, O daughter of Zion!

​​Shout, O Israel!

​​Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,

​​O daughter of Jerusalem!

15 ​​The LORD has taken away your judgments,

​​He has cast out your enemy.

​​The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst;

​​You shall see disaster no more.

​16 ​​In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem:

​​“Do not fear;

​​Zion, let not your hands be weak.

17 ​​The LORD your God in your midst,

​​The Mighty One, will save;

​​He will rejoice over you with gladness,

​​He will quiet you with His love,

​​He will rejoice over you with singing.”

It looks like there is much singing to come forth!

Holiness And Ownership

Thursday, November 21st, 2019

Holiness is ownership and FATHER has set apart and is purifying those of us who have accepted HIS Divine Intent to live according to the straight and narrow path called The Way.  We have a free will to walk away from our calling, or fully embrace our purpose which was determined before we were formed in the womb.  As for me and my house, we have submitted to FATHER’S ownership and are serving HIM.  After all, Jesus paid the full price for you and me so why should I separate myself from the One Who first Loved me?

Our free will is either our greatest asset or our greatest liability.  We are HIS workmanship.  I am owned by MY FATHER thus my life is not my own.  I am set apart for HIS work on this earth.  I purpose to do nothing except what FATHER instructs me to do through HIS Holy Spirit.

Will you adhere to and believe The Word delivered to you?  If so, your promotion is at hand.  Use your tongue as a rudder for your life.  Your words will guide you and bring forth manifestation.  Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 12:

33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Our words reflect what is in our hearts.  My tongue is meant to speak forth blessing thus anytime I speak words contrary to Agape Love, I am missing it!  As I become more sensitive to walking in The Holy Spirit, I am being corrected rather quickly.  It is better to keep my mouth shut than to speak words which evoke condemnation.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 11:

16 Since Abraham and the patriarchs are consecrated and set apart for God, so also will their descendants be set apart. If the roots of a tree are holy and set apart for God, so too will be the branches.

17 However, some of the branches have been pruned away. And you, who were once nothing more than a wild olive branch in the desert, God has grafted in—inserting you among the remaining branches as a joint partner to share in the wonderful richness of the cultivated olive stem. 18 So don’t be so arrogant as to believe that you are superior to the natural branches. There’s no reason to boast, for the new branches don’t support the root, but you owe your life to the root that supports you!

19 You might begin to think that some branches were pruned or broken off just to make room for you. 20 Yes, that’s true. They were removed because of their unbelief. But remember this: you are only attached by your faith. So don’t be presumptuous, but stand in awe and reverence. 21 Since God didn’t spare the natural branches that fell into unbelief, perhaps he won’t spare you either!

22 So fix your gaze on the simultaneous kindness and strict justice of God. How severely he treated those who fell into unbelief! Yet how tender and kind is his relationship with you. So keep on trusting in his kindness; otherwise, you also will be cut off.

Some have spoken ill against the nation of Israel and have made legal claims that the majority of the people are not included in the lineage of the twelve tribes.  What does it matter?  FATHER knows the absolute Truth and our focus should be directed toward blessing and being a light unto the whole world.  Jesus is not moved by man’s research and claims.  He paid the price for all of us no matter what our genealogy.  I have submitted to the ownership of My Heavenly Father and trust HIM to sort out the details in all areas.

Abraham was a firstfruit and if the firstfruit is Holy, the lump is also Holy; and if the root is Holy, so are the branches.  When your firstfruit is set apart and given to FATHER, it is deemed Holy.  As a result, FATHER deems the rest to be Holy as well.  As I give FATHER the firstfruit of my day, HE deems the rest of the day to be Holy as well.  When I give the firstfruit of my income to HIM, HE deems the rest of my income to be Holy and blesses my family accordingly.

If we are truly owned by FATHER and trust HIM, we will cheerfully tithe our increase knowing that FATHER will bless us and provide for us.  Abraham understood this “Law” and tithed to Melchizedek.  This Spiritual Law has not changed but only those who understand FATHER’S Divine Intent behind this Truth can truly give in a cheerful manner.

The mind has difficulty in understanding how a small portion of Holiness can spread to the entire substance.  People grossly underestimate FATHER’S ability to provide in a world where scarcity prevails.  FATHER does not live in destitution and those who are HIS are meant to live in HIS full provision.  The tithe is the physical expression denoting FATHER’S ownership.  Our unbelief will hinder the provision resulting from the giving of the tithe.  As Agape Love is revealed to each of us, the tithe is no longer an issue of debate.  As I live a Holy life, Holiness will spread to my family and Loved ones.  Abraham’s army was credited with Holiness so they were deemed clean and were able to pass through Jerusalem without hindrance.  Abraham’s tithe covered them all.

Each of us ought to ask the question “Who owns me?”

As a reminder, never give out of pressure, condemnation, or fear of rejection. FATHER’S Love knows what each of us is dealing with. I present these Truths so that you can better understand Kingdom Economics and provision.

Our Book in Heaven

Wednesday, November 20th, 2019

Our character is formed in adverse circumstances.  This is when we are to be fully led by THE SPIRIT rather than respond by the mind, will, or emotions.  We will be able to assess our current state of maturity by our responses to those adversities.  This directly affects the level of trustworthiness in receiving power and authority from Above.

If you live by The Holy Spirit, you will change history.  This is what we are called to do.  We will no longer allow people to control us and we will be in command of our walk on the path known as The Way.  We will see no need to argue or debate any issue.  People will no longer incite us to anger or disgust by their words and/or actions.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 1:

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

Let this Truth sink in.  Mediate on it.  Now, let’s look at what The Holy Spirit revealed in Psalm 139:

14 I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex!

Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking.

It simply amazes me to think about it!

How thoroughly you know me, Lord!

15 You even formed every bone in my body

when you created me in the secret place,

carefully, skillfully shaping me from nothing to something.

16 You saw who you created me to be before I became me!

Before I’d ever seen the light of day,

the number of days you planned for me

were already recorded in your book.

17–18 Every single moment you are thinking of me!

How precious and wonderful to consider

that you cherish me constantly in your every thought!

O God, your desires toward me are more

than the grains of sand on every shore!

Each of us has a book recorded in Heaven and it prophesies of our life on earth.  FATHER has carefully and skillfully shaped you and me from nothing to something.  Afterward, HE formed us in the womb.  It is not by chance you are reading this for it is time for the Words found in our books to manifest on earth.  Our books have intersected in FATHER’S perfect Plan, Will and Purpose.

I am Loved and you are too and as we comprehend FATHER’S Perfect Love, we will no longer walk in fear.  John wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1 John chapter 4:

17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us.

When did FATHER first Love us?  Psalm 139 above provides us with the answer.  HE gave us the capacity to Love others because we were formed out of HIS Love.

Facts don’t set you free.  It is the Truth that sets you free.  Let us be seekers of The Truth through the ministry of The Holy Spirit rather than simply “fact seekers”.

We are called to exceed what previous generations accomplished, not less.  Apostles of faith such as Smith Wigglesworth may have set a standard but we are to exceed such ministries, not fall short.

We are to be ignited by the Holy Fire.  When we walk according to that Holy Fire originating from the Altar, history on earth changes.  We are being trained to walk in this Holy Fire continuously. 

Consider Enoch.  It is written by The Holy Spirit in Genesis chapter 5:

21 When Enoch was 65 years old, Methuselah was born.

22 Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God after the birth of Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters.

23 So all the days of Enoch were 365 years.

24 And Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God; and he was not, for God took him [home with Him].

We too are to walk in habitual fellowship with FATHER and HE provided The Holy Spirit to live within us for this very purpose.  We have been given access to HIS Presence and HIS Holiness which expresses Itself as Holy Fire on earth.  Consider that Enoch was 65 years old before he habitually walked in fellowship with FATHER.  Were those first 65 years wasted?  Not in the least.  We are never too old to fulfill our purpose.  FATHER sustained Enoch those first 65 years knowing that he would ultimately walk consistently with HIM.

We are called to expose the whole world to FATHER’S Agape Love by ministering that Love to those who are lost and those who are now lukewarm.  We must not be critical of those whom we once looked up to but have waned from their calling.  Our lights should shine on their path so they can realize a correction is necessary.  Let our destiny written in our books be manifested on earth as it is written in Heaven!

The Plumb Line

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Amos 7:

7 Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand. 8 And the LORD said to me, “Amos, what do you see?”

And I said, “A plumb line.”

Then the Lord said:​

​​“Behold, I am setting a plumb line

​​In the midst of My people Israel;

​​I will not pass by them anymore.

9 ​​The high places of Isaac shall be desolate,

​​And the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste.

​​I will rise with the sword against the house of Jeroboam.”

A plumb line allows the wall to be erected perfectly true and upright. By this reference, all construction will be completed.  Otherwise, the wall will lean and be subject to failure over time.  It is also written by THE SPIRIT in Isaiah chapter 28:

16 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD:​

​​“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation,

​​A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation;

​​Whoever believes will not act hastily.

17 ​​Also I will make justice the measuring line,

​​And righteousness the plummet (a plumb line);

​​The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,

​​And the waters will overflow the hiding place.

The Sons and Daughters are called to be a plumb line for all others to be compared.  We are called to be upright in all our ways and expose unrighteousness wherever we go.  We will not lean to our own understanding but trust in and rely on The Holy Spirit WHO has perfect knowledge and discernment of how we are to minister and show us who is ready to repent.  We are not to judge others for we do not have perfect knowledge.

As we are led by The Holy Spirit, we will expose and sweep away the refuge of lies… and there are plenty of lies needing to be swept away.  FATHER will place us in situations where the Truth will come forth so that which is perfectly true and upright will replace the wickedness with righteousness.  FATHER’S goodness will be seen and will draw men unto HIM through you and me as we minister the Good News.  Confusion will be replaced by revelation.

There will be no unbelief found among the elect as our level of trust in FATHER’S Goodness comes to full maturity.  Our plumb line will not swing in the wind of man’s doctrines but will be perfectly still, even when the storms come.  Our wall of righteousness will stand firm for it is part of the Cornerstone of Christ.  This wall will extend out and will not fail.

Do you have concerns about where you stand in your maturity as a Son or Daughter?  Ask FATHER to reveal any sifting required in order for you to achieve 100% purity.  Be willing to accept whatever surfaces requiring repentance and be grateful HE has revealed it to you for it is by HIS Goodness that HE wants to use you and fulfill HIS purpose in you. 

Jesus spoke in Matthew 7:

7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! 12 Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

As we fully realize HIS Goodness, we will walk in Agape Love toward others thereby fulfilling the Commandment of Love.  We will become passionate about ministering to the unsaved.  FATHER will give us good gifts to fulfill our individual callings.  We will no longer ask amiss but will ask, seek, and knock according to the perfect ministry of The Holy Spirit.  Our trust is based on WHO FATHER is, not just what HE says.  HE is not reluctant to reveal HIMSELF in the various levels of revelation found in every Word HE has spoken and recorded for our benefit.

There are those of us who have questioned our call and election because of our past failures.  Do not worry about being disqualified for Jesus’ Blood is more than sufficient to deal with ALL of our past.  The fact that you are reading this is an indication of your desire toward full maturity.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Peter 1:

10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Demons can’t read your mind.  However, they can speak to you and assess your reaction to what they have spoken or directed toward you.  If you do not respond in like manner, they will try another area of potential weakness.  If you are led by THE SPIRT, you become unresponsive to all their snares and they say simply depart looking for someone who is weak.  A plumb line of righteousness will not be moved by outside forces and will be unhindered in fulfilling the mandate of Christ in harvesting souls.

In Luke chapter 10, Jesus spoke:

1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. 2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. 3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road. 5 But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. 8 Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. 9 And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, 11 ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.’ 12 But I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city.

Shouldn’t we quit focusing of Jesus’ return and focus on bringing in the harvest of souls?  Our days of preparation as mature Sons and Daughters are coming to completion.  We should ask for and expect the power and authority to heal the unsaved which will be a primary confirmation of The Word we speak.  They will be drawn to Jesus Christ by these signs as we proclaim kingdom of God has come near to you!  Agape Love has no desire to leave anyone behind.


Monday, November 18th, 2019

When something causes us to look away or draws our attention from the high calling given to us by Our Heavenly Father, we need to repent.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 3:

14 I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus. 15 So let all who are fully mature have this same passion, and if anyone is not yet gripped by these desires, God will reveal it to them. 16 And let us all advance together to reach this victory-prize, following one path with one passion.

This anointing does not arise from another source other than Jesus Christ.  This being the case, why do some brethren spend countless hours in studying topics that have nothing to do with this anointing?  It is because the soul wants to be in charge and bring the spirit into subjection.  The result is no anointing thus no good fruit.

Repentance means we are turning back around to the Mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.  True repentance comes forth when we have a revelation of FATHER’S Agape Love and HIS goodness.

Everything in the world is designed to pull your attention away from Our Heavenly Father and Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Once your attention is drawn away, you will need to repent and return your focus to Jesus Christ.

John the Baptist spoke in Matthew chapter 3:

7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance; 9 and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father’; for I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham. 10 The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

The Pharisees and Sadducees were guilty of directing the focus of the people away from the goodness of GOD.  They were placing heavy yokes on the people by forcing compliance to the Law which could not be fully satisfied in their current state.  Jesus, on the other hand, showed the goodness of Our Heavenly Father as He healed the sick and set the captives free.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 3:

19 And now you must repent and turn back to God so that your sins will be removed, and so that times of refreshing will stream from the Lord’s presence.

Repentance is not a one-time event but is necessary anytime we divert our focus away from Our Lord Jesus Christ resulting in us not fully walking in THE SPIRIT.  There is much going on in the world today which is intended to draw away our focus. 

Do you think it is a coincidence that entertainment has become a 24/7 alternative competing for our time?  Cell phone have become the latest portal for entertainment and distraction.  The adversary wants to keep us entertained or focused on world events in an effort to dilute our ministry away from our Divine purpose.  As we no longer allow ourselves to be distracted, past interests will vanish from our midst.  As a result, times of refreshing will come forth.

How often do I need to repent?  As often as you veer off the mark.  One time is not sufficient to cover all the misguided actions as we are maturing.

When I was introduced to Bible numerology I was intrigued and it tickled my intellect.  I began doing an exhaustive study on numbers and suddenly numbers seemed to appear as signs everywhere.  I got caught up and my focus moved away from Our Lord Jesus Christ and the ministry of The Holy Spirit.  It wasn’t long before the good fruit became sparse.  I had to repent even though all numbers originate from FATHER, they are only relevant when HE says they’re relevant.  Otherwise, they will cause us to lose sight of the straight and narrow path.  The adversary will produce “signs” to keep us predisposed and off course.

If we fail to admit that we got off the mark, then we are prideful and that pride precedes our fall.  It is my responsibility to correct my error and not blame it on anyone else.  Yes, someone may have enticed me to study numbers but The Holy Spirit is given for us to discern our focus and direction, not giving in to such enticements.  If I don’t heed the warning, then I will proceed down the wrong path and become unfruitful.  I have no one to blame but myself.  “Self” will always attempt to deflect responsibility and cast the blame elsewhere.  Each of us must judge our self and our fruit so that we can correct our path through repentance.

In 2 Timothy chapter 2, Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit:

23 Stay away from all the foolish arguments of the immature, for these disputes will only generate more conflict. 24 For a true servant of our Lord Jesus will not be argumentative but gentle toward all and skilled in helping others see the truth, having great patience toward the immature. 25 Then with meekness you’ll be able to carefully enlighten those who argue with you so they can see God’s gracious gift of repentance and be brought to the truth. 26 This will cause them to rediscover themselves and escape from the snare of Satan who caught them in his trap so that they would carry out his purposes.

FATHER’S gracious gift of repentance will lead to the Truth.  Men’s arguments, agendas, or pursuits of knowledge will not assure us of finding HIS Truth.  Don’t get caught up in Satan’s trap.

Walking With Passion

Sunday, November 17th, 2019

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

9 But when the Spirit of Christ empowers your life, you are not dominated by the flesh but by the Spirit. And if you are not joined to the Spirit of the Anointed One, you are not of him.

10 Now Christ lives his life in you! And even though your body may be dead because of the effects of sin, his life-giving Spirit imparts life to you because you are fully accepted by God. 11 Yes, God raised Jesus to life! And since God’s Spirit of Resurrection lives in you, he will also raise your dying body to life by the same Spirit that breathes life into you!

And in Hebrews chapter 11, The Holy Spirit recorded:

6 And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God. For we come to God in faith knowing that he is real and that he rewards the faith of those who give all their passion and strength into seeking him.

There are two types of people who study Scripture: those who are passionate and those who study out of duty.  Those who are passionate have tapped into walking in The Holy Spirit and are overjoyed with FATHER’S Word whereas those who study out of duty know it is needful but have lost their zeal because they are not experiencing the Joy of THE LORD.

When we are led by The Holy Spirit and no longer question or challenge the path we are to walk on, we have a sense of peace that surpasses our understanding.  We do not give in to lust or pride and are not moved by the adversary’s attempts to knock us off the straight and narrow path.  We want to renew our mind because it can be transformed and become aligned with our spirit.  However, the body cannot.  We must not allow our flesh to have its way at any time.

There is a harvest out there and we need to be prepared to do our part.  FATHER has ordained for us to participate as we walk in Agape Love toward others.  It is not HIS will that any should perish and we need to be lights unto this dying world.  As our passion is seen as a “fire” in our eyes, people will respond.  Some will be offended but they will not discourage us in any way.  “Social acceptance” will not cause our mouths to be shut as we speak forth as The Holy Spirit guides us.

FATHER will reward us as we faithfully walk out our purpose and look forward to what each day brings.  We will look forward to being a blessing to others without any strings attached.  We will have no ulterior motive to “take” from those to whom we minister.  We will experience each day where The Holy Spirit will have us walk in a “just in time” reality.  What we once thought were delays will be revealed as HIS timing.  What we thought were coincidences were simply HIS plan being accomplished in the correct sequence.  HIS timing is everything!

Let us look forward to beginning each day by praying in The Holy Spirit and renewing our minds with FATHER’S applicable Word for that day.  A strong spirit and a renewed mind will bring the flesh into full submission.  If you ask FATHER to wake you up early, HE will oblige.  I can attest to HIS response and it pleases HIM to see HIS Sons and Daughters place HIS Divine Intent above all other priorities.

Consistently Being Led By THE SPIRIT

Friday, November 15th, 2019

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians chapter 2:

2 My brothers and sisters, when I first came to proclaim to you the secrets of God, I refused to come as an expert, trying to impress you with my eloquent speech and lofty wisdom. 2 For while I was with you I was determined to be consumed with one topic—Jesus, the crucified Messiah. 3 I stood before you feeling inadequate, filled with reverence for God, and trembling under the sense of the importance of my words. 4 The message I preached and how I preached it was not an attempt to sway you with persuasive arguments but to prove to you the almighty power of God’s Holy Spirit. 5 For God intended that your faith not be established on man’s wisdom but by trusting in his almighty power.

We too should be consumed with the one topic of Jesus Christ.  It was by FATHER’S resurrection power that our future is assured.  I have no interest in persuasive arguments to compel you to take the path known as The Way.  Those who seek to be fully led by The Holy Spirit will be drawn to this straight and narrow path.

I have veered off the path at various times in my past because of being deceived by those whom I looked up to but The Holy Spirit graciously set me back on the right path.  Once I realized the fruit in my life had dried up, I repented and reassessed where I went wrong.  I removed myself from those environments which were causing me to walk in error.

6 However, there is a wisdom that we continually speak of when we are among the spiritually mature. It’s wisdom that didn’t originate in this present age, nor did it come from the rulers of this age who are in the process of being dethroned. 7 Instead, we continually speak of this wonderful wisdom that comes from God, hidden before now in a mystery. It is his secret plan, destined before the ages, to bring us into glory. 8 None of the rulers of this present world order understood it, for if they had, they never would have crucified the Lord of shining glory. 9 This is why the Scriptures say:

Things never discovered or heard of before,

    things beyond our ability to imagine—

    these are the many things God has in store

    for all his lovers.

Men will try to justify their thoughts and actions by reasoning in their minds.  They will build ministries and solicit followers based on their understanding, independent of The Holy Spirit.  The focus will be on their actions rather than Our Lord Jesus Christ.  How do we protect ourselves from their logic and reasoning which sounds good but has not fruit?  We must be led by The Holy Spirit in all matters.  Don’t expect this to occur overnight but only by fully committing to this priority of being led by The Holy Spirit on a daily basis.

10 But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit. Yes, he has revealed to us his inmost heart and deepest mysteries through the Holy Spirit, who constantly explores all things. 11 After all, who can really see into a person’s heart and know his hidden impulses except for that person’s spirit? So it is with God. His thoughts and secrets are only fully understood by his Spirit, the Spirit of God.

12 For we did not receive the spirit of this world system but the Spirit of God, so that we might come to understand and experience all that grace has lavished upon us. 13 And we articulate these realities with the words imparted to us by the Spirit and not with the words taught by human wisdom. We join together Spirit-revealed truths with Spirit-revealed words.

14 Someone living on an entirely human level rejects the revelations of God’s Spirit, for they make no sense to him. He can’t understand the revelations of the Spirit because they are only discovered by the illumination of the Spirit. 15 Those who live in the Spirit are able to carefully evaluate all things, and they are subject to the scrutiny of no one but God.

Our spirit man has the capacity to hear FATHER and discern every aspect of what we hear from others.  We must not be moved by convincing arguments of man’s reasoning.  The Holy Spirit will instruct us from the standpoint of the pure, absolute Truth which is only found in Heaven.

Should we be critical of those who are speaking out of their soul?  No, we should Love them and pray for their understanding to be enlightened.  However, we must be followers of Christ and not be drawn away by those who exalt anyone else including ourselves.

Paul said emphatically “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God”.  The Holy Spirit will not be deemphasized by The Sons or Daughters but will have a moment by moment relationship which will keep us on the right path, no matter what man’s logic or reasoning would otherwise suggest.
