Don’t Hold Back

Monday, February 17th, 2020

What is holding us back?  There are no limitations in THE SPIRIT.

The spirit of this world would have us believe we cannot be partakers of Jesus’ Divine Nature.  Peter wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Peter in chapter 1:

3 Everything we could ever need for life and complete devotion to God has already been deposited in us by His Divine power. For all this was lavished upon us through the rich experience of knowing Him who has called us by name and invited us to come to Him through a glorious manifestation of His goodness. 4 As a result of this, He has given you magnificent promises that are beyond all price, so that through the power of these tremendous promises you can experience partnership with the Divine nature, by which you have escaped the corrupt desires that are of the world.

The Holy Spirit has revealed to us that we have everything we need within us to walk victoriously in this world.  Unbelief is what is holding us back from walking in the fullness of His power and authority. 

Many have taught a doctrine of waiting for a specific date to occur and then we will walk in such power.  Those “prophetic” dates have come and gone a multitude of times yet people continue to hang on the words of those false prophets.  Instead we need to devote ourselves to removing unbelief and error by immersing ourselves in the pure Word and walking in the Word without exception or reluctance. 

It is all about us yielding to the pure Word in all areas of our life.  There is no one in Heaven limiting us so we must look only as far as the mirror to find the one keeping us from fully entering into the fullness revealed here.

5 So devote yourselves to lavishly supplementing your faith with goodness,

and to goodness add understanding,

6 and to understanding add the strength of self-control,

and to self-control add patient endurance,

and to patient endurance add Godliness,

7 and to godliness add mercy toward your brothers and sisters,

and to mercy toward others add unending love.

8 Since these virtues are already planted deep within, and you possess them in abundant supply, they will keep you from being inactive or fruitless in your pursuit of knowing Jesus Christ more intimately. 9 But if anyone lacks these things, he is blind, constantly closing his eyes to the mysteries of our faith, and forgetting his innocence—for his past sins have been washed away.

10 For this reason, beloved ones, be eager to confirm and validate that God has invited you to salvation and claimed you as his own. If you do these things, you will never stumble. 11 As a result, the kingdom’s gates will open wide to you as God choreographs your triumphant entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Messiah.

Are you willing to fully devote yourself to walking according to every Word in this chapter?  I am!  What else is worth pursuing instead?  Everything else is temporary by nature and will fall apart at some point and become totally worthless.  We need to focus on what The Holy Spirit is saying to us in this passage for it deals with eternity.  There is no failure associated with The Word.  We must saturate ourselves in The Word thus Truth will permeate every aspect of our life.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 16:

12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.”

Let us no look at our own weakness but instead we should focus on the Absolute Truth and walk accordingly.  We must not focus on the flesh but rather subdue it for it is holding us back from walking in the fullness of THE SPIRIT.  Everything we need has already been deposited on our behalf so let us make used of our resources today!

Zebulun: Dwelling in Exaltation

Sunday, February 16th, 2020

Another writing from my friend Alan:

If you have been following this series of investigations into the family of Jacob, who was later to become Israel, you are aware that Leah, the elder daughter of Laban, was betrothed to a man who did not ask for her, nor have desire for her. And throughout this pageant, Jacob was thereby forced to accept a ‘wife’ he didn’t want in return for having access to the woman he loved. If you or I were writing this script, this is probably not the beginning we would suggest for the makings of a solid marriage and prosperous future. And yet it is the very scenario experienced by the one that was destined to manifest the full meaning of the name ‘Yah-qove’ (Jacob), and who was later to learn what it means to have to die to being ‘Yah-qove’ in order to experience the blueprint known as ‘Israel’. The journey from ‘adam’ to Christ is a storyline that could only be conceived in the Mind of God.
Leah, the wife reluctantly accepted, has given birth to five sons for Jacob, while Rachel, whom Jacob loved, was still barren and could produce no ‘fruit of the womb’. After the incident of ‘the mandrakes’, Rachel was still barren, but Leah produced a fifth son which she named Issachar; “My Wages” or “My Reward”. And even while Rachel remained childless, as if to add insult to injury, Leah conceived again to produce a sixth son for Jacob.
KJV Genesis 30:19 And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.
KJV Genesis 30:20 And Leah said, “God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell (zah-bal, Strong’s # 2082) with me, because I have born him six sons”: and she called his name Zebulun.
While we have no direct information about what has been transpiring in the life of Leah since the birthing of Issachar, her demeanor and mindset seems to have begun to change; and for the better. Leah seems to be more at peace with herself, and her circumstances. And there is more going on in this scenario than we can plumb in this setting. The significance of the birth and naming of Zebulun seems to indicate that Leah is more accepting of her place in relationship with her husband, and the other ‘wives’ and their children. Leah emphasizes that she has now produced six sons for Jacob, and she relates that to being a ‘good dowry’, and a gift from God.
One of the unique mysteries revealed in this passage of scripture is the relationship between two words used by Leah in this proclamation; ‘zah-bahd’ and ‘zah-bal’. The English words ‘endued’ and ‘dowry’ in this verse, Gen. 30:20, are from the same Hebrew word, ‘zah-bahd’, which is listed as Strong’s #2064-2066. The primary root ‘zah-bahd’, as recognized in Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon, is defined as this: “…to endow; to impart; to bestow a gift, etc.” This
verse is the only place in scripture where I can find this word listed as a verb, and a common noun. Every other use of this three-letter word is as a proper noun name. That makes the use of this word as a verb/noun combination in this verse leap out at me, and causes me to ask ‘why’?
What is going on in the life of Leah that would inspire her to refer to giving birth to six sons as ‘a good dowry’? The English ‘dowry’ is referred to as a gift of money or property, or somethingof intrinsic value, that a woman’s family usually gives to a husband so that the future intended husband has something of value with which to provide for and protect his betrothed. Leah was well aware that the dowry that Laban, her father, had pledged to Jacob was the opportunity to ork further for Laban, just so Jacob could receive Rachel, his true love, as his wife. However,
after the birthing of Issachar, and now Zebulun, Leah declares that God has provided her with the acceptable ‘dowry’ for Jacob; six sons. That, to me, is a remarkable progression in the heart and mind of Leah as she has had to endure competing with Rachel, and two ‘handmaid’ wives, for respect and loyalty and attention from Jacob. Leah is proclaiming that the six sons she has born to Jacob is the proper dowry that she has to bestow (zah-bahd) upon her husband.
Leah has apparently recognized and accepted the valuable role she has to offer this clan. She can now see the true worth of her presence. Leah has found her ‘dwelling place’; the place where she belongs.
The other unique Hebrew word used in this verse is the verb ‘zah-bal’, Strong’s #2082. ‘Zah-bal’ refers to the proper dwelling place of a thing, or person or idea. The use of this word is indication that an idea or person or item is dwelling, actually residing, in its proper locale; where it naturally belongs. And both of the Hebrew words in this verse, ‘zah-bahd’ and zah-bal’, come from a common word association based on the first letter of the words, which is the ‘zayin’, the seventh letter of the Hebrew ‘aleph-beyt’ (alphabet). The use of the ‘zayin’, the seventh
letter, particularly when the ‘zayin’ is the first letter of a word, is indicative of having arrived, via a proper progression, to the correct location of a person or thing or idea. Many times a person or thing or idea can be recognized as not being in its most fitting locale. But that is not so with this word ‘zah-bal’. This word is indicative of a person, thing or idea being specifically where it is most suited; where it belongs. Hence the word ‘Zebulun’, derived from this verb ‘zah-bal’, is descriptive of perpetually dwelling in your most suitable location or condition.
The second letter of these two words is the ‘beyt’ (b), which is also the second letter of the ‘aleph-beyt’. And the role of the ‘beyt’ is to communicate a dwelling place, or cave, or house.

The Hebrew spelling of these words is significant in how these words are being used to communicate. In this context, the word ‘zah-bal’, which is loosely translated as ‘to dwell’, is indicative that Leah has recognized that she sees herself as now being in her relevant role, and in her proper dwelling place. Now that Leah is in her proper dwelling place, mentally and emotionally and spiritually, she believes her husband will now desire to ‘zah-bal’, or ‘dwell’, in her presence. While this doesn’t necessarily mean that Jacob will only dwell with her, and no longer desire his relationship with Rachel, Leah is now at peace with her situation. Leah has, in her own unique way, found peace in this troubled clan. As testimony of her finding her God-endowed place of peace, she will be rewarded with giving birth to another; a daughter, which she names Dinah.
When Leah names her daughter Dinah, the name indicates that Leah has accepted God’s discernment (diyn Strong’s #1777-1781) as a righteous judgment (diyn) for her situation. The word ‘dinah’ (see Strong’s # H1783) is from the same word that is translated in Psalm 7:8 as “…’judge’ (diyn; discern) the people;”, and also in many other places where ‘judge’ or ‘judgment’ is actually better recognized as ‘discernment’. However, the word ‘Dinah’ has the fifth letter of the ‘aleph-beyt’, the ‘hey’, added as suffix to this word ‘diyn’, which makes the word ‘dinah’ a
feminine context. Words which are a ‘feminine’ context’ are descriptive of an activity or idea actually being acted out, and/or physically expressed. The name ‘Dinah’ indicates that this discernment/judgment (diyn) is actually a quality of life being lived out.
Leah has now become ‘zah-bahd’, a good dowry. She doesn’t have a good dowry; she is a good dowry. ‘Zebulun’ (zah-bal) has now become the dwelling place of Leah, and ‘Dinah’ has become her quality of Life; in God, and in her family. Well done, Leah! Well done, indeed!
I can now see that until Jacob had become the complete and proper husband to his first wife, Leah, he could not have sons from his true love, Rachel. Jacob has arrived because Leah has arrived. And now Joseph, the legitimate ‘firstborn’ of Jacob, can come forth, and the journey to ‘Israel’ may continue. Jacob faces more pruning from God before he can be confronted with the role of Israel, which is his intended destination.

Being A Good Receiver Too

Saturday, February 15th, 2020

We cannot be afraid of being in need thus living our lives in fear.  As we walk out the contents of our books (Psalm 139:16) which determined our destiny, FATHER will provide provision for our daily lives.  We must be willing “receivers” in all areas and expect blessing to come our way.  Let us not be reluctant to be led by The Holy Spirit in this area.  Reluctance is fear-based.

Angels are dispatched on our behalf the moment we obey FATHER and their job is to bring forth the resources required to fulfill FATHER’S Word.  It is up to each of us to actively respond to FATHER’S Word.  If you sit around and do nothing, that is exactly what you will receive… nothing.

I can attest to these teachings because they have been a reality in my family for years thus I don’t write from “theory” but instead I am writing from personal experience in responding to The Word.  We must not limit Our Heavenly Father from lack of revelation but we must embrace HIS Word and expect It to apply to each of us.  Let us remove our mind’s restrictions and allow The Word to prosper us in every area of our lives.

In order to be a good giver, you have to be a good receiver.  FATHER opens up doors for the purpose of blessing us so we must learn to expect the unexpected.  As it is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 11:

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.

And In Matthew chapter 7, Jesus spoke:

7 “Ask, and the gift is yours. Seek, and you’ll discover. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8 For every persistent one will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he longs for. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door.

9 “Do you know of any parent who would give his hungry child, who asked for food, a plate of rocks instead? 10 Or when asked for a piece of fish, what parent would offer his child a snake instead? 11 If you, imperfect as you are, know how to lovingly take care of your children and give them what’s best, how much more ready is Your Heavenly Father to give wonderful gifts to those who ask him?”

We don’t have to overanalyze the above passage for we need to simply be persistent in our seeking of the intimate relationship with FATHER which is based on Agape Love.  When our focus is on HIM, HE desires to fulfill our needs and desires in a righteous manner.  Faith is not a system where you quote verses 100 times in order to wear out Our Heavenly Father until HE responds.  It is a relationship between FATHER and HIS children as Jesus spoke in the above passage.

Agape Love is all about relationship.  When we have a close relationship, there is no fear, uncertainty, or doubt.  This is why I emphasize the need to hear THE LORD in every area of your life.  If you are led to give, then give.  If you are being sent, then go.  If you are told to wait on THE LORD and do nothing, then wait until you hear HIS Directive.

We know we are told to be givers, the only question is to whom.  If you are not giving at all, then there is a “fear” issue which needs to be rooted out.  Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 6:

38 “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Jesus gave us this directive for our own benefit.  Generous givers will receive a generous reward.  When you engage the Kingdom, you come against what Satan is doing and this is one aspect of being an Overcomer.  It just as important to be a receiver as it is a giver.  Yes, there is a difference between a “receiver” and a “taker”.

Abundant Rewards

Friday, February 14th, 2020

How do we become good “receivers”?  It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 6:

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.

FATHER has a reward system and in order for it to properly work, we need to become good receivers and expect our faith to produce positive results.  Paul wrote to the Philippians by The Holy Spirit concerning their generosity in chapter 4:

14 You’ve so graciously provided for my essential needs during this season of difficulty. 15 For I want you to know that the Philippian church was the only church that supported me in the beginning as I went out to preach the gospel. You were the only church that sowed into me financially, 16 and when I was in Thessalonica, you supported me for well over a year.

17 I mention this not because I’m requesting a gift, but so that the fruit of your generosity may bring you an abundant reward. 18 I now have all I need—more than enough—I’m abundantly satisfied! For I’ve received the gift you sent by Epaphroditus and viewed it as a sweet sacrifice, perfumed with the fragrance of your faithfulness, which is so pleasing to God!

19 I am convinced that my God will fully satisfy every need you have, for I have seen the abundant riches of glory revealed to me through the Anointed One, Jesus Christ! 20 And God our Father will receive all the glory and the honor throughout the eternity of eternities! Amen!

Those who are supporting Servias Ministries should be expecting an abundant reward.  I share the same words as Paul for I am not requesting a personal gift for FATHER takes care of my family providing us with “more than enough”. 

I pray that you who give, become good receivers as well and are rewarded for your giving, especially those gifts to the impoverished children we are supporting.  We are providing them with food and clothing and FATHER has a special place in HIS Heart for children in need. 

It is not that I seek your gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account which is there to be disbursed to you in faith so that you can increase and minister in a greater manner.  This will expand the Kingdom on earth.  Your spiritual account will transfer to the physical unless you restrict the flow.

FATHER intends for us to become distribution centers thus we are not meant to walk in “survival mode” until the return of Christ.  We are meant to go about doing good just as Jesus did in His earthly ministry.  It is time to open the door to your “distribution center” if it is not yet opened.

Paul further wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 3:

5 Yet we don’t see ourselves as capable enough to do anything in our own strength, for our true competence flows from God’s empowering presence. 6 He alone makes us adequate ministers who are focused on an entirely new covenant. Our ministry is not based on the letter of the law but through the power of the Spirit. The letter of the law kills, but the Spirit pours out life.

As we become distribution centers, FATHER’S empowering presence will go before us and cause us to be fully adequate in all we set our hand to.  It is HIS Divine Intent that none of us be poor.  HIS Intent is stated in Deuteronomy chapter 15:

1 “At the end of every seven years you shall grant a release of debts. 2 And this is the form of the release: Every creditor who has lent anything to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not require it of his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the LORD’s release. 3 Of a foreigner you may require it; but you shall give up your claim to what is owed by your brother, 4 except when there may be no poor among you; for the LORD will greatly bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance.”

FATHER will bless the creditor who “jubilees” the borrower thus no one ultimately suffers loss.  How can HE do all this?  In Psalm 91:1 HE is known as El Shaddai, “The All Sufficient One” referring to HIS absolute power.  Who better to align ourselves with than the ONE who can and will meet every need of HIS Sons and Daughters.  Those of us who are willing to make HIM our dwelling place will be qualified for the unrestricted flow from Heaven.  In the end, it is all about habitation.  Those who diligently seek HIM will experience habitation (Hebrews 11:5-6)… Enoch had this revelation.

HE is our provision but it is our responsibility to engage in the supernatural.  If you don’t discern, you won’t receive.  We need not wait for the next move of GOD… we are the next move!

FATHER’S Goodness

Thursday, February 13th, 2020

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

5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus

The pastor is not your mediator, the prophet is not your mediator, neither is the pope your mediator, only Jesus Christ.  In order to receive from Heaven, we need not go to anyone else but Our Heavenly Father in Jesus’ Name.

And in Romans chapter 2:

4 Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

FATHER wants to begin our walk with HIM by HIS goodness being revealed.  HE is not mad at us, HE formed us in the womb so that we would ultimately fellowship with HIM similar to Adam and Eve before the fall.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 17:

21 I pray for them all to be joined together as one

    even as you and I, Father, are joined together as one.

    I pray for them to become one with us

    so that the world will recognize that you sent me.

22 For the very glory you have given to me I have given them

    so that they will be joined together as one

    and experience the same unity that we enjoy.

23 You live fully in me and now I live fully in them

    so that they will experience perfect unity,

    and the world will be convinced that you have sent me,

    for they will see that you love each one of them

    with the same passionate love that you have for me.

Why listen to man’s opinions about our relationship with Our Heavenly Father when we can simply accept the Words of Jesus.  We were formed in the womb by FATHER’S Divine nature and Intent so we are meant to walk in that Divine nature, not according to the lust of the world.  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.

We started with Divine nature and FATHER intends for us to end in Divine nature but it is by our choice to walk as partakers of HIS nature.  The old man tries to convince us we are not worthy but we must overcome this fallacy because Jesus’ Blood DOES make us worthy.

We are being restored so that we can walk in the Garden with GOD and enjoy fellowship with HIM.  We need to become great receivers of the grace and mercy of Our Heavenly Father for HIS resources are unlimited.  Nothing will be withheld from those who have an ongoing relationship with HIM.  The Blood of Jesus Christ has not been diminished in any way thus His preeminence still reigns in these last days.

In Psalm 139, it is written by The Holy Spirit:

5 You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way,

and in kindness you follow behind me

to spare me from the harm of my past.

With your hand of love upon my life,

you impart a blessing to me.

If we really understand how good Our Heavenly Father is, we will be able to receive from HIM in a much greater manner.  If we believe we are not worthy of an intimate relationship with FATHER, we are restricting the flow from Heaven, not FATHER.  HIS resources are unlimited.

When we are in full unity with FATHER, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit, we don’t need to receive a word from a prophet.  FATHER willingly speaks to us and directs us according to our purpose.  When we hear HIS Word, we simply need to respond by doing HIS Word.  Our positive response promotes unity and improves the flow from Heaven to earth to the point of overflow.

It’s All About Relationship

Wednesday, February 12th, 2020

Are you seeking a position or a relationship with FATHER?  It is written by The Holy Spirit in Psalm 91:

1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High

​​Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

FATHER told me years ago that titles given by the world were unimportant.  I thought having an MBA (Masters of Business Administration) behind my name would help my career.  HE corrected me and told me that HE would promote me and I didn’t need to impress others with a title.  It is all about relationship with HIM!

The benefits of such a relationship are stated in Psalm 91:

​9 ​​Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge,

​​Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

10 ​​No evil shall befall you,

​​Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

11 ​​For He shall give His angels charge over you,

​​To keep you in all your ways.

12 ​​In their hands they shall bear you up,

​​Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

13 ​​You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,

​​The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.​

14 ​​“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;

​​I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

15 ​​He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;

​​I will be with him in trouble;

​​I will deliver him and honor him.

16 ​​With long life I will satisfy him,

​​And show him My salvation.”

People will quote various promises in Scripture yet they will not make a full commitment to be “all in” with FATHER.  They will hold back out of fear thus they have not yet received the revelation of Agape Love in their life.  They are still dealing with fear of failure and rejection.  As we embrace FATHER’S unconditional Love for us, we will seek an intimacy beyond what an earthly father can bring forth.

In order to be in HIS shadow, you have to qualify to be there.  You must walk in the relationship to receive the benefits.  Many focus on being placed in the position or title of being one of the Sons but do very little to encourage a relationship with FATHER.  Every one of us will be asked the question: What did you do with what you had?  Many will shed tears of sorrow when they are shown their past filled with inactivity associated with FATHER’S directives and priorities.

Cheerful giving is an act of faith and FATHER Loves a cheerful giver.  Ministering Jesus Christ to others should be our priority.  Our life should be filled with acts of kindness toward others thus representing Our Heavenly Father to all.  If we don’t truly know HIM through a relationship, how can we effectively represent HIM?  The world needs “Fathers” not just instructors.  We should be actively destroying the works of the devil.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 10:

19 And now we are brothers and sisters in God’s family because of the blood of Jesus, and He welcomes us to come right into the most holy sanctuary in the heavenly realm—boldly and with no hesitation. 20 For He has dedicated a new, life-giving way for us to approach God. For just as the veil was torn in two, Jesus’ body was torn open to give us free and fresh access to him!

21 And since we now have a magnificent King-Priest to welcome us into God’s house, 22 we come closer to God and approach him with an open heart, fully convinced by faith that nothing will keep us at a distance from HIM. For our hearts have been sprinkled with blood to remove impurity and we have been freed from an accusing conscience and now we are clean, unstained, and presentable to God inside and out!

23 So now we must cling tightly to the hope that lives within us, knowing that God always keeps HIS promises! 24 Discover creative ways to encourage others and to motivate them toward acts of compassion, doing beautiful works as expressions of Love.

When we enter into this closeness with FATHER, HE will reveal secrets to us for we are now fully trustworthy.  At this point, we will ask FATHER what is on HIS mind rather than being preoccupied with our thoughts.  Now our priorities will be in full alignment with HIS.  It is all about relationship!

Habitation!

Tuesday, February 11th, 2020

The enemy has been promoting a fatherless generation.  In many of us, our earthly father has kept us from knowing and walking in the intimacy of Agape Love.  Without an earthly father who walks in unconditional Love, the child feels rejected and becomes protective by building a wall around the heart to withstand any further rejection.  These walls are about to come down with the move of GOD which has already begun.

Many children have been raised without a father at home.  Others were raised by fathers who were totally performance-based in their relationship.  If you perform, the father will express his love and acceptance.

The next step after revelation from Above is “visitation”.  Visitation will expose all the issues which keep us from the third level of “habitation”.  The issues each of us struggle with must be dealt with in order for habitation to occur.  We must deal with the root of each issue that has kept us from fully embracing habitation.  When we are willing to be intimate and open with FATHER, those issues will be rooted out once and for all.  The walls will come down.

Even though the source the issue is not our fault, it does not solve the problem.  The Holy Spirit will expose the source and will remove the hurt resulting in the wall coming down within you.  You will no longer be a victim and the adversary known as the devil will become the victim as you overcome his works in your life as well as others.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians chapter 4:

14 I do not write these things to shame you, but as my beloved children I warn you. 15 For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 16 Therefore I urge you, imitate me. 17 For this reason I have sent Timothy to you, who is my beloved and faithful son in the Lord, who will remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church.

We have seen the move known as the “Jesus movement” and we have seen the movement centered on Azusa Street which focused on The Holy Spirit.  We are now in the midst of the movement which includes the intimacy of Our Heavenly Father thus bringing forth the next level of Agape Love… habitation of ALL THREE.  First, revelation; second, visitation; and third, habitation.

When we move from being a victim to an overcomer, we will no longer accept and allow anything to hinder us including sickness and disease.  We will not allow the flesh to rule our walk and we will no longer be moved by emotions and be double-minded.

Once we are at this third level of our walk, we will experience the Glory of FATHER for the Glory comes directly from HIM.  This third level is all about relationship with FATHER and ownership.  We will also understand the fullness of walking in Holiness. 

Relationship determines what we do with “revelation, visitation, and habitation.”  We seek to be close to FATHER and walk according to HIS Divine Intent of Love in every aspect of our lives.  We no longer focus on our positions as Sons and Daughters, the elect, or the overcomers.  We now focus on expressing Agape Love to all of mankind by revealing FATHER’S Glory in all our words and actions.

James wrote by The Holy Spirit in chapter 2 of his epistle:

14 My dear brothers and sisters, what good is it if someone claims to have faith but demonstrates no good works to prove it? How could this kind of faith save anyone? 15 For example, if a brother or sister in the faith is poorly clothed and hungry 16 and you leave them saying, “Good-bye. I hope you stay warm and have plenty to eat,” but you don’t provide them with a coat or even a cup of soup, what good is your faith? 17 So then faith that doesn’t involve action is phony.

18 But someone might object and say, “One person has faith and another person has works.” Go ahead then and prove to me that you have faith without works and I will show you faith by my works as proof that I believe.

When we act and give unconditionally, we are expressing FATHER’S Agape Love and this is pleasing to HIM.  Ultimately our continuous walk in Agape Love will bring forth the third phase known as habitation.

Setting Our Course

Monday, February 10th, 2020

We must set our course based on the Truth rather than our emotions.  Our emotions are deceptive at times and we must keep our emotions under control.  They are not the Truth but are meant to add to and enrich our experience with Our Heavenly Father.

We must allow the Truth to dictate our perception and not what the world is dispensing.  We are to enjoy our perception by allowing our emotions to be added to perception.  As Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

We should not be led by our emotions for they are unreliable.  Your soul will drive you rather than lead you.  We have all seen people who are “driven” to be successful and I was among those before I had the revelation of being led by The Holy Spirit.  It was exhausting to say the least.

In Hebrews chapter 4, it is written by The Holy Spirit:

9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. 10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.

When we are led by The Holy Spirit, we have ceased from our works and we will experience that light burden and easy yoke Jesus referenced.  It is refreshing to the soul to be led by THE SPIRIT thus departing from the masses who are constantly driven by soulish desires.

Who do you think is the expert in the spirit realm?  It is The Holy Spirit of course.  Then shouldn’t we purpose to submit to The Holy Spirit at all times if we want to fully function and be successful in the spirit realm?  We must set our path according to what The Holy Spirit directs.

When we do this, many will reject us and no one likes such rejection.  However, just as Jesus was rejected, we will be rejected and we must not let our emotions supersede our spirit.

Peter wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1 Peter chapter 2:

4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture,

​​“Behold, I lay in Zion

​​A chief cornerstone, elect, precious,

​​And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”

7 Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient,

​​​“The stone which the builders rejected

​​Has become the chief cornerstone,”

8 and

​​​“A stone of stumbling

​​And a rock of offense.”

​They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed.

When we are fully aligned with Our Lord Jesus Christ, we too will be rejected by the wicked.  We must not allow their words to affect us by stirring up our emotions.  Instead, since we are connected to the Chief Cornerstone, we will remain steadfast on our path.  Our angels are charged to watch over us and protect us from such enemies who attack us with their words and actions.

12 Live honorable lives as you mix with unbelievers, even though they accuse you of being evildoers. For they will see your beautiful works and have a reason to glorify God in the day he visits us.

To the pure, all things are pure.  Conversely, to the impure all things are impure.  The evildoers look through their own evil eyes thus they see evil.  As we go about doing good, we testify of and glorify Our Heavenly Father.  Our works will overcome and penetrate the evil and perversion of our accusers.  The anointing will always break the yoke and convict those who accuse us so let us be full of joy as we set our course on the path known as The Way.  When we do, our emotions will no longer rule us but will serve us as we walk according to The Holy Spirit.

Our Destiny

Saturday, February 8th, 2020

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 11:

25 Then Jesus exclaimed, “Father, thank you, for you are Lord, the Supreme Ruler over heaven and earth! And you have hidden the great revelation of your authority from those who are proud and wise in their own eyes. Instead, you have shared it with these who humble themselves. 26 Yes, Father, your plan delights your heart, as you’ve chosen this way to extend your kingdom—by giving it to those who have become like trusting children. 27 You have entrusted me with all that you are and all that you have. No one fully and intimately knows the Son except the Father. And no one fully and intimately knows the Father except the Son. But the Son is able to unveil the Father to anyone he chooses.

28 “Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. 29 Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. 30 For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.”

In other words, “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

We are to yield to the yoke Jesus speaks of in the above passage.  When we yield to The Holy Spirit, we take something from the other realm and make it manifest in this realm.  Think about it.

We need to be led, not driven as the world promotes.  As for me, I purpose to do nothing until The Holy Spirit directs me to action rather than taking action and expecting FATHER to bless whatever I am doing.  When I was driven, I assumed the opposite.  I acted first based on my own intellect expecting FATHER to bless me.  I was only as successful as the world’s odds of success.  When I did respond to what The Holy Spirit was telling me, I was totally successful.  Ultimately, I had to undo what the world taught me in order to be successful and it did not happen overnight.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Psalm 16:

Lord, I have chosen you alone as my inheritance.

You are my prize, my pleasure, and my portion.

I leave my destiny and its timing in your hands.

When we submit to The Holy Spirit, our destiny is assured as written in our book in Heaven (Psalm 139:16).  We have fully accepted the easy yoke of walking with Jesus rather than the heavy yoke of the world.  FATHER has an intended destiny for each of us.  However, as I have said multiple times, the choice is ours.  HIS Divine Intent of Love planned our destiny so we need not be concerned about the outcome.

Since we are made in HIS image, we had to be given free will so that we would have the ability to rule and reign with Jesus.  You cannot rule if you don’t have the ability to decide.  No one is forced to serve HIM and we have the option to choose our own path.  Without choice, you cannot truly and unconditionally Love.

Destiny means that we have an intended destination.  I want to see FATHER’S Glory fully revealed and that is one aspect of my destiny.  I want to see the Face of MY FATHER and walk in HIS Glory.  My intended destination was planned by FATHER and as I submit to The Holy Spirit, I will fulfill my destiny.  Could you or I plan a better outcome than Our Heavenly Father’s plan?  FATHER spoke in Jeremiah chapter 29:

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Our destiny is to not simply survive until we are taken up to Heaven.  We should be ministering to others in whatever capacity we have been afforded by FATHER.  Our focus should be fully aligned with The Holy Spirit at all times even when it is inconvenient.

Our true destiny is beyond our ability to fulfill because it has to be supernatural otherwise we would take credit for accomplishing what FATHER intended and put into motion.  Our next step toward fulfillment is impossible for us to complete until we enter into the supernatural.

Our destiny is intricate by the very nature that FATHER designed it just as HE designed the entire universe.  HE left nothing to chance in our designated path if we will constantly stay in the flow of The Holy Spirit.  Don’t be surprised when certain people come into your life and impact it in a glorious way.  We need to expect supernatural events to occur in our daily life so let our eyes be fully opened with great expectation. 

Embrace and receive your destiny for you have been made worthy because of the Blood Covenant provided by Our Elder Brother!

Resurrection Power

Friday, February 7th, 2020

It is written in Isaiah chapter 55 by The Holy Spirit:

​8 ​​“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,

​​Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.

9 ​​“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

​​So are My ways higher than your ways,

​​And My thoughts than your thoughts.​

10 ​​“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,

​​And do not return there,

​​But water the earth,

​​And make it bring forth and bud,

​​That it may give seed to the sower

​​And bread to the eater,

11 ​​So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;

​​It shall not return to Me void,

​​But it shall accomplish what I please,

​​And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Resurrection power is part of our Blood Covenant with FATHER and this includes healing and restoration in all areas of our life.  This resurrection power provides for us to be fully restored from the fallen state originating through Adam.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

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!

12 So then, beloved ones, the flesh has no claims on us at all, and we have no further obligation to live in obedience to it. 13 For when you live controlled by the flesh, you are about to die. But if the life of the Spirit puts to death the corrupt ways of the flesh, we then taste his abundant life.

When we take Communion, let us remember Christ’s resurrection power in the Blood.  This resurrection power is flowing within us and we must not hinder its flow. 

This flow transfers from our spirit to our mind and body thus we can and should truly walk in Divine health.  If we aren’t, then we should seek FATHER and ask HIM to expose the issue.  I have had to do this in my own life more than once.  It takes discipline to allow this transfer to flow unhindered.  We must master sin and not allow it to take hold.  It is our responsibility and we must die to the flesh and live the crucified life.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 3:

7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. 8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.​

You can’t have resurrection power if you don’t die to the flesh thus it is up to each of us to make the decision in order to fully receive this power.  Jesus gave us the power that raised Him up from the dead.  Your mind may think this Truth is outlandish but be assured that if you take command over your thoughts you will begin to accept this Truth in your own life.

This power also brought Lazarus back from the dead as well as others in the Gospel.  This is one aspect of being “full” of The Holy Spirit.  How much Heaven that is in you is determined by your choices.  In Joshua 24:15 says “choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.”  Our answer is affirmed and strengthened every day as we renew our mind with FATHER’S Word.  Now is the time to embrace resurrection power in our lives.
