Our Testing

Wednesday, September 30th, 2020

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Psalm chapter 105:

7 ​​HE is the LORD Our God;

​​HIS judgments are in all the earth.

8 ​​HE remembers HIS covenant forever,

​​The word which HE commanded, for a thousand generations,

9 ​​The covenant which HE made with Abraham,

​​And HIS oath to Isaac,

10 ​​And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,

​​To Israel as an everlasting covenant,

11 ​​Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan

​​As the allotment of your inheritance,”

12 ​​When they were few in number,

​​Indeed very few, and strangers in it.

There is no variance in FATHER’S Word as HE made a covenant with Abraham, an oath to Isaac, and confirmed it to Jacob.  HE provided three witnesses to HIS commitment. 

13 ​​When they went from one nation to another,

​​From one kingdom to another people,

14 ​​HE permitted no one to do them wrong;

​​Yes, HE rebuked kings for their sakes,

15 ​​Saying, “Do not touch MY anointed ones,

​​And do MY prophets no harm.”

FATHER actively enforces HIS covenant with us as we walk according to HIS Word.  However, when we stray from HIS Divine Intent, we bring forth judgment in some form.  Since HE has given us the ability and right to choose, we are responsible for our actions and the resulting fruit- good or bad. 

This does not negate HIS Word so out of Agape Love, HE will always provide us with a way to restoration.  HIS plan may be obscure to us at the time but as we get a greater revelation of HIS Love, we will be assured of a way out of our trouble.  HE knew a famine was coming to the land and HE had been preparing Joseph for such a time.  However, Joseph needed to come to the end of himself and walk in a crucified manner as we see in the following passage:

16 ​​Moreover HE called for a famine in the land;

​​HE destroyed all the provision of bread.

17 ​​HE sent a man before them—

​​Joseph—who was sold as a slave.

18 ​​They hurt his feet with fetters,

​​He was laid in irons.

19 ​​Until the time that HIS word came to pass,

​​The word of the LORD tested him.

20 ​​The king sent and released him,

​​The ruler of the people let him go free.

21 ​​He made him lord of his house,

​​And ruler of all his possessions,

22 ​​To bind his princes at his pleasure,

​​And teach his elders wisdom.

FATHER will test those whom HE Loves so that they will mature into the fullness of their calling.  Joseph’s training lasted several years and he suffered many disappointments during that time.  However, he persevered and increased in maturity.

Joseph was tempted by the world on multiple fronts but passed the test in each case.  FATHER gave Joseph the dream concerning his future when Joseph was seventeen.  As we all know, teenagers “know it all” thus Joseph openly conveyed the dream to his brothers.  They were not pleased to hear the dream and plotted to remove their brother from their midst.   Was FATHER surprised by their plan?  Not in the least.

Later in Genesis chapter 45, Joseph revealed FATHER’S plan to his brothers:

3 Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am Joseph; does my father still live?” But his brothers could not answer him, for they were dismayed in his presence. 4 And Joseph said to his brothers, “Please come near to me.” So they came near. Then he said: “I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. 5 But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. 6 For these two years the famine has been in the land, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. 7 And God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. 8 So now it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.

Joseph went through an extended time of testing in order to prepare him for his calling.  FATHER did not divulge the details of this time of testing for it would have been too much for a seventeen year old teenager to handle.

These times of testing are meant to build up our faith and remove the “chaff” in our lives.  Instead of resisting these tests, embrace them knowing that FATHER’S Love exceeds anything you or I must go through.

A Portal Of HIS Power

Tuesday, September 29th, 2020

The power of GOD is always present to heal and HE is always available but we don’t tap into IT, we have to yield to The Holy Spirit in order to walk in that power.  Jesus fully submitted to FATHER’S directives.  Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 26:

36 Then Jesus led his disciples to an orchard called “The Oil Press.” He told them, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.” 37 He took Peter, Jacob, and John with Him. However, an intense feeling of great sorrow plunged His soul into deep sorrow and agony. 38 And He said to them, “My heart is overwhelmed and crushed with grief. It feels as though I’m dying. Stay here and keep watch with Me.”

39 Then He walked a short distance away, and overcome with grief, He threw himself facedown on the ground and prayed, “My Father, if there is any way You can deliver Me from this suffering, please take it from Me. Yet what I want is not important, for I only desire to fulfill YOUR plan for Me.” Then an angel from Heaven appeared to strengthen him.

How many of us have fully come to the same place?  FATHER, I only desire to fulfill YOUR plan for me!  If we truly want to fully mature according to FATHER’S plan, we must be led by The Holy Spirit… especially in our weaknesses.  Jesus was overcome with grief yet He would not submit to that grief and turn away from FATHER’S plan.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

21 all creation longs for freedom from its slavery to decay and to experience with us the wonderful freedom coming to GOD’s children. 22 To this day we are aware of the universal agony and groaning of creation, as if it were in the contractions of labor for childbirth. 23 And it’s not just creation. We who have already experienced the firstfruits of the Spirit also inwardly groan as we passionately long to experience our full status as GOD’s Sons and Daughters—including our physical bodies being transformed. 24 For this is the hope of our salvation.

But hope means that we must trust and wait for what is still unseen. For why would we need to hope for something we already have? 25 So because our hope is set on what is yet to be seen, we patiently keep on waiting for its fulfillment.

26 And in a similar way, the Holy Spirit takes hold of us in our human frailty to empower us in our weakness. For example, at times we don’t even know how to pray, or know the best things to ask for. But the Holy Spirit rises up within us to super-intercede on our behalf, pleading to FATHER with emotional sighs too deep for words.

27 FATHER, the searcher of the heart, knows fully our longings, yet HE also understands the desires of the Spirit, because the Holy Spirit passionately pleads before FATHER for us, his Holy ones, in perfect harmony with FATHER’S plan and our destiny.

28 So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into FATHER’S perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are HIS lovers who have been called to fulfill HIS designed purpose. 29 For HE knew all about us before we were born and HE destined us from the beginning to share the likeness of HIS Son. This means the Son is the oldest among a vast family of brothers and sisters who will become just like Him.

30 Having determined our destiny ahead of time, HE called us to HIMSELF and transferred HIS perfect righteousness to everyone HE called. And those who possess HIS perfect righteousness HE co-glorified with HIS Son!

As we submit to the Holy Spirit and pray in “Tongues”, FATHER enlightens our understanding in the areas of our weakness and we are brought into HIS destined plan to share the likeness of HIS Son in all areas.  This is when we begin to flow in the power which is present to heal and deliver.

Paul also wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 12:

7 The extraordinary level of the revelations I’ve received is no reason for anyone to exalt me. For this is why a thorn in my flesh was given to me, the Adversary’s messenger sent to harass me, keeping me from becoming arrogant. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to relieve me of this. 9 But HE answered me, “MY grace is always more than enough for you, and MY power finds Its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. 10 So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my Love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to GOD’S power.

Are you ready to become a portal for GOD’S power?

More Testimonies Of Your Giving

Monday, September 28th, 2020

We continue to help impoverished kids with 100% of your tithes and contributions.  Since they cannot repay the assistance, FATHER takes on that responsibility and you cannot out-give Our Heavenly Father.

A new comment provided to us:

Hi, I am so grateful for your generosity and kindness towards my family.  We were struggling, and the gift cards came at just the right time.  We were able to put food on the table and get some new shoes for my children to start school in.  It was such a relief to have that need met.  Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness.  My family was blessed. Thanks You,

Another comment just received:

We had a student on our backpack food program who came to school with shoes falling apart.  The sole of one of the shoes was almost completely falling off and was dangerous for the child to wear.  We knew the family could not afford to run out and buy new shoes easily.  However, we were able to use some of the money donated to quickly purchase two new pairs of shoes for the student within two days.  The student was very excited to get new shoes. 

We also have many students needing snacks every day.  Since we are not able to share snacks as easily this year due to Covid, keeping a stock of snacks has helped make sure students are taken care of. 

What a blessing!!!

PS: FATHER is keeping a record of our acts of Agape Love toward these kids.

The Handicapped Woman

Monday, September 28th, 2020

When Jesus spoke, He transferred the reality of Heaven to earth.  This is why we need to focus on the Words of Jesus and The Holy Spirit.

Luke (the “physician”) recorded by The Holy Spirit in chapter 13:

10 One Sabbath day, while Jesus was teaching in the synagogue, 11 He encountered a seriously handicapped woman. She was crippled and had been doubled over for eighteen years. Her condition was caused by a demonic spirit of bondage that had left her unable to stand up straight.

12–13 When Jesus saw her condition, He called her over and gently laid his hands on her. Then He said, “Dear woman, you are free. I release you forever from this crippling spirit.” Instantly she stood straight and tall and overflowed with glorious praise to God!

Jesus Loved this woman and was quick to release her from the demon who had plagued her for eighteen long years.  Where did He find her?  In the synagogue.  I am sure she was seeking THE LORD and hoped for HIS intervention… her day arrived.  The demon did not keep her from attending to her faith.

If we are to truly ascend to fully mature Sons and Daughters, we must be willing to pray and fast in a greater degree than most believers.  This is a requirement to walk in the same empowerment as Jesus walked.  Our mindsets must shift away from past teachings of passivity causing us to think that FATHER will do it all while we simply sit around and do nothing.  This is EXACTLY what demons want us to do… nothing, and false teachers have promoted this mindset.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 2:

8 Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of human logic. For they operate with humanistic and clouded judgments based on the mindset of this world system, and not the anointed Truths of the Anointed One.

Additionally in Philippians chapter 2:

4 Abandon every display of selfishness. Possess a greater concern for what matters to others instead of your own interests. 5 And consider the example that Jesus, the Anointed One, has set before us. Let His mindset become your motivation.

We must not take these words lightly.  In order to walk like Jesus, we must have the same mindset as Jesus.  He did not spend 3 ½ years sitting around and doing nothing.  As it is written by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 10:

38  God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

The woman above was being oppressed by the devil and Jesus healed her by removing the demon from her midst.  She wasn’t demon possessed, she was demon oppressed.  Yes, demons have no problem in attending “church” services.

Dealing with demons was and is a notable portion of Jesus’ ministry on this earth thus we must not disregard this aspect of ministry if we are to walk in the same mindset as Jesus.  If you are afraid of demons, your mindset must change.  Jesus never backed down from the devil or demons for He knew His authority over them.  He had no misguided teachings to hinder Him.

Our lives must be saturated with the presence of God through prayer and fasting in order to conquer the evil that is in the world and hiding in the hearts of mankind.  How many leaders of the church had encountered the woman for those eighteen long years yet had no clue of how to minister to her?  Selah.

The Living Word

Saturday, September 26th, 2020

Mark wrote by The Holy Spirit in chapter 5:

21 After Jesus returned from across the lake, a huge crowd of people quickly gathered around Him on the shoreline. 22 Just then, a man saw that it was Jesus, so he pushed through the crowd and threw himself down at His feet. His name was Jairus, a Jewish official who was in charge of the synagogue. 23 He pleaded with Jesus, saying over and over, “Please come with me! My little daughter is at the point of death, and she’s only twelve years old! Come and lay Your hands on her and heal her and she will live!”

24 Jesus went with him, and the huge crowd followed, pressing in on Him from all sides.

25 Now, in the crowd that day was a woman who had suffered horribly from continual bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had endured a great deal under the care of various doctors, yet in spite of spending all she had on their treatments, she was not getting better, but worse.

The world wants us to put our trust and money with the healthcare system and pharmaceutical companies.  At best they can effectively treat the symptoms but do not produce a cure.  Our immune systems are designed to heal our bodies when given the chance.  Moreover, we must search out the root cause of our sickness or disease to see what is preventing us from living in Divine health.

Was Jesus ever sick?  No!  Why?  Healing power flowed through Him and that same healing power is meant to flow through us as well for we too are Sons and Daughters of THE MOST HIGH.  Sickness cannot survive when the healing power has arrived.

27 When she heard about Jesus’ healing power, she pushed through the crowd and came up from behind Him and touched His prayer shawl. 28 For she kept saying to herself, “If only I could touch His clothes, I know I will be healed.” 29 As soon as her hand touched Him, her bleeding immediately stopped! She knew it, for she could feel her body instantly being healed of her disease!

30 Jesus knew at once that someone had touched Him, for He felt the power that always surged around Him had passed through Him for someone to be healed. He turned and spoke to the crowd, saying, “Who touched My clothes?”

31 His disciples answered, “What do You mean, who touched You? Look at this huge crowd—they’re all pressing up against You.” 32 But Jesus’ eyes swept across the crowd, looking for the one who had touched Him for healing.

33 When the woman who experienced this miracle realized what had happened to her, she came before Him, trembling with fear, and threw herself down at His feet, saying, “I was the one who touched You.” And she told Him her story of what had just happened.

34 Then Jesus said to her, “Daughter, because you dared to believe, your faith has healed you. Go with peace in your heart, and be free from your suffering!”

Her faith healed her because she had no unbelief about the healing power flowing through Jesus.  She tapped into the Spiritual and brought It into the physical.

There was a glorious power that kept going out around Jesus Christ, drawing others to Him and healing those He touched, and in this case, healing a woman who touched Him in faith. Jesus knew that the power of God was always emanating around Him, yet it had flowed through Him to someone in the crowd.

Jesus already knew the answer to His question. He wanted the woman to come forward and acknowledge her healing. There were crowds around Jesus, the Living Word. Many today crowd around the written Word. But only those who “touch” the Scriptures in faith receive its promises, just like the sick woman who received her healing.

We must not allow ourselves to get into a rut of “crowding around the written Word”.  Each morning, I ask The Holy Spirit what to focus on in The Living Word and He directs me to the passage or passages which end up in these writings.  None of these writings are by happenstance.  The Holy Spirit is constantly directing us to the Living Word, not just the written Word.  We must understand FATHER’S Divine Intent for what THE SPIRIT is saying today.

35 And before He had finished speaking, people arrived from Jairus’ house and pushed through the crowd to give Jairus the news: “There’s no need to trouble the Master any longer—your daughter has died.” 36 But Jesus refused to listen to what they were told and said to the Jewish official, “Don’t yield to fear. All you need to do is to keep on believing.” 37 So they left for his home, but Jesus didn’t allow anyone to go with them except Peter and the two brothers, Jacob and John.

38 When they arrived at the home of the synagogue ruler, they encountered a noisy uproar among the people, for they were all weeping and wailing. 39 Upon entering the home, Jesus said to them, “Why all this grief and weeping? Don’t you know the girl is not dead but merely asleep?” 40 Then everyone began to ridicule and make fun of Him. But He threw them all outside.

Then He took the child’s father and mother and His three disciples and went into the room where the girl was lying. 41 He tenderly clasped the child’s hand in His and said to her in Aramaic, “Talitha koum,” which means, “Little girl, wake up from the sleep of death.” 42 Instantly the twelve-year-old girl sat up, stood to her feet, and started walking around the room! Everyone was overcome with astonishment in seeing this miracle!

Yes, the child’s body was dead but her spirit wasn’t and she could hear the Words of Jesus.  Jesus made it quite clear that our lives don’t end because of physical death and we are meant to hear His Words to us no matter what state we are in.

FATHER’S healing power has not subsided and it is up to us to bring forth that healing power in and through us.  It is our responsibility to build our faith into “great faith” and walk in that power and authority.  If you are simply and passively hanging out waiting for FATHER to do something on your behalf, you are missing out.

If people are making fun of you, ridiculing you, or distracting you… do as Jesus did, “throw them out”.  How do you build up your faith to “great” faith?  Jude wrote by THE SPIRIT:

20 But you, my delightfully loved friends, constantly and progressively build yourselves up on the foundation of your most holy faith by praying every moment in the Holy Spirit. 21 Fasten your hearts to the Love of God and receive the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gives us eternal life.

Enter In To Your Secret Place

Friday, September 25th, 2020

Being undisturbed is helpful to concentration of thought.  We need to direct our focus on what is important to FATHER.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 6:

6 “Examine your motives to make sure you’re not showing off when you do your good deeds, only to be admired by others; otherwise, you will lose the reward of your heavenly Father. 2 So when you give to the poor, don’t announce it and make a show of it just to be seen by people, like the hypocrites in the streets and in the marketplace. They’ve already received their reward! 3 But when you demonstrate generosity, do it with pure motives and without drawing attention to yourself. 4 Give secretly and your FATHER, WHO sees all you do, will reward you openly.”

Your donations to Servias are being directed to help the poor, specifically the impoverished children.  They do not know who is helping them for we have chosen to remain anonymous by utilizing intermediaries to distribute on our behalf.  As a result, FATHER will reward each of us openly.  FATHER knows who you are and responds to your gifts of Love to those kids.

When dealing with the poor, we should protect their dignity.  This is why no names are provided to those who receive our Love gifts.  Their current state of impoverishment does not need a light directed to it.  They need to be encouraged that someone cares.

5 “Whenever you pray, be sincere and not like the pretenders who love the attention they receive while praying before others in the meetings and on street corners. Believe Me, they’ve already received in full their reward. 6 But whenever you pray, go into your innermost chamber (secret place) and be alone with Father God, praying to HIM in secret. And your FATHER, WHO sees all you do, will reward you openly.”

My secret place is where I am undisturbed and can hear The Holy Spirit and hear myself think.  There are no distractions in the secret place.  It does not have to be a closet but it does need to be somewhere without inherent distractions.

The secret place is made to close off the spirit to all distractions so you can feel alone with FATHER.  HE will then speak to your renewed mind and crucified body.  Noise prevents your mind from hearing so you must do away with noise.  Loud music appeals to the flesh and keeps the person from hearing THE SPIRIT.  I am amazed that churches will promote “praise” music which is nearly deafening.  Some even hand out ear plugs for those who can’t handle the volume.

Before I was filled with The Holy Spirit, I played in a rock band and our music was loud which appealed to the audience.  They could literally “feel” the music and loved it.  Why?  It promoted their carnal nature.  After I was baptized in The Holy Spirit, my desire to play immediately left me so I quit the band and sold all my equipment.  Yes, old things passed away thus I never regretted my departure from that life.

In the secret place, we become aware of the things we often overlook hence the secret place is made for awareness between you and FATHER.  Our appreciation for those things increases and we become more alert.

In the secret place, we find out what we should be grateful for.

Beware of the cares that try to absorb you and cause your focus to be directed away from your secret place.  Jesus warned us in Mark chapter 4:

18 And the seed sown among thorns represents those who hear the Word, 19 but they allow the cares of this life and the seduction of wealth and the desires for other things to crowd out and choke the Word so that it produces nothing.

The secret place is where we have communion with FATHER which brings forth stability and peace.  If fear is gripping your heart, you need to go to your secret place until your peace is restored no matter how long it takes.  Your communion with FATHER will eliminate the seduction of wealth and desires for other things.  When you are full of The Holy Spirit, there is no room for “thorns”.

In the secret place, we get a sense of true perspective and the “temporary” loses its appeal.  We are able to see the relative importance of things in our life.  Never brood or worry over small disappointments or misfortunes for they will darken your surroundings.

Our life must be reviewed under the “light” of GOD for it exposes not only Truth but sin which must be dealt with.  We must discover the root causes which are keeping us from progressing to the next level of maturity in Christ.  This takes time and patience for FATHER will expose issues in a progressive fashion allowing us to deal with each issue one at a time.  It is like the peeling of an onion.

The secret place produces awareness and proper perspective.  It is clear that we need both in such a time as this.

In quietness FATHER speaks if we listen patiently and honestly.  Our faith is strengthened during such times.  This is where the best opportunity to hear FATHER occurs.  Enter in to your secret place often and you will not be disappointed.

Maintaining Perspective

Thursday, September 24th, 2020

It is written by The Holy Spirit in the book of Hebrews chapter 3:

3 And so, dear brothers and sisters, you are now made Holy, and each of you is invited to the feast of your Heavenly calling. So fasten your thoughts fully onto Jesus, whom we embrace as our Apostle and King-Priest. 2 For He was faithful to the Father who appointed Him, in the same way that Moses was a model of faithfulness in what was entrusted to him. 3 But Jesus is worthy to receive a much greater glory than Moses, for the one who builds a house deserves to be honored more than the house he builds. 4 Every house is built by someone, but God is the Designer and Builder of all things.

5 Indeed, Moses served God faithfully in all HE gave him to do. His work prophetically illustrates things that would later be spoken and fulfilled. 6 But Christ is more than a Servant, He was faithful as the Son in charge of God’s house. And now we are part of His house if we continue courageously to hold firmly to our bold confidence and our victorious hope.

Why do I continue to emphasize exalting Jesus on a daily basis?  He is our Apostle and King-Priest and we are directed to fasten our thoughts FULLY on Him.  After all, He is the One and Only Way to Our Heavenly Father.  There is no other who can establish such a relationship.  Moses was simply a prophetic illustration but not the real “thing”.  Moses was simply another piece to the puzzle leading us to Christ.

Jesus solely established you and me as brothers and sisters to Him thus established our Sonship with FATHER.  Some would say they don’t deserve to be placed in such high esteem with FATHER.  That thought is simply false humility and pride.

We have an obligation in our relationship with FATHER and Son to continue courageously to hold firmly to our bold confidence and victorious hope.  “Holding firmly” requires energy and commitment.  The only reason a person would digress is because they are listening to their carnal nature and/or a demon.  Isn’t that what Eve did?

It is further written by The Holy Spirit:

7 This is why the Holy Spirit says,

“If only you would listen to HIS voice this day!

8 Don’t make HIM angry by hardening your hearts,

    like your ancestors did during the days of their rebellion,

    when they were tested in the wilderness.

9 There your fathers tested ME and tried MY patience

    even though they saw MY miracles for forty years

    they still doubted ME!

10 This ignited MY anger with that generation

    and I said about them, ‘They wander in their hearts

    just like they do with their feet,

    and they refuse to learn MY ways.’

11 MY heart grieved over them so I decreed:

    ‘They will never enter into the calming rest of MY Spirit!’ ”

12 So search your hearts every day, my brothers and sisters, and make sure that none of you has evil or unbelief hiding within you. For it will lead you astray, and make you unresponsive to the living God.

How often should we search our hearts?  Every day, without exception.  We must not allow ourselves to become complacent and drift away from what is truly important to our future.  Is the next TV program, sporting event, or newscast more important than the above urging?  We must determine what actions today will ultimately be beneficial to our future.  Does this mean we can’t be entertained and enjoy recreation?  No, but not at the expense of keeping our hearts fixed on THE LORD.

We are not meant to be passive and do nothing for the Kingdom.  We are to establish the Kingdom in our daily lives but we must maintain our priorities and protect our hearts as we go forth on behalf of the Kingdom.  Each of us can spread the Gospel by our words and acts as we go about our daily activities.  It is all about maintaining perspective.  Simply, don’t allow yourself to grow lukewarm and unresponsive to The Holy Spirit.

The Appointed Heir

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020

In the book of Hebrew chapter 1, it is written by The Holy Spirit:

1 Throughout our history GOD has spoken to our ancestors by his prophets in many different ways. The revelation he gave them was only a fragment at a time, building one truth upon another. 2 But to us living in these last days, GOD now speaks to us openly in the language of a Son, the appointed Heir of everything, for through Him GOD created the panorama of all things and all time.

If you want to mature as a Son or Daughter, you must pay close attention to the Words of Jesus for His Words are life to those who heed them and walk by them.  There is no other who can lead men to FATHER thus there is only one way to salvation, through Jesus Christ.

Have you ever noticed that network TV allows the term God but not Jesus?  The demons know the power in His Name and in His Blood.  They would love to snuff out the Name above All Names but they can’t.  Those who live in darkness are fighting a losing battle.

3 The Son is the dazzling radiance of GOD’s splendor, the exact expression of GOD’s true nature—HIS mirror image! He holds the universe together and expands it by the mighty power of his spoken word. He accomplished for us the complete cleansing of sins, and then took his seat on the highest throne at the right hand of the majestic One.

There is no way to interpret away these statements of Truth and facts.  You need no other mediator to take away your sins.  You need not pay someone to absolve your sin nor trust in another to cleanse you.  There is no intermediary between you and Jesus.  Why place your focus elsewhere?

Do you want to know the ways of FATHER?  Study the Words and acts of Jesus.

4 He is infinitely greater than angels, for he inherited a rank and a Name[m] far greater than theirs. 5 For God has never said to any angel what he said to Jesus:

“You are MY favored Son, today I have Fathered you.”

And this:

“I will be the Father to Him, and He will be the Son to ME.”

6 And again, when HE brought HIS firstborn Son into the world:

“Let all MY angels bow down before Him

    and kiss Him in worship.”

FATHER mentions the term “firstborn” thus Jesus is the first of many Sons.  For those of us who have eyes to see, we have become HIS Sons as well though we are at various stages of maturity.  We want to please Our Heavenly Father and make HIM proud of us as we go forth and imitate HIM by following Jesus as our Perfect Example.

Angels are subordinate to Our Savior and are meant to bring forth the implementation of His Word in our lives as directed from the Throne Room.  Since I have personally been delivered from certain death by an angel, you cannot convince me otherwise.  They are real and active today.

7 And about his angels HE says,

“I make MY angels swift winds,

    and MY ministers fiery flames.”

8 But about HISs Son, HIM called Him “God,” saying,

“Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever

    and You will rule Your kingdom

    with justice and righteousness,

9 For You have cherished righteousness

    and detested lawlessness.

    For this reason, GOD, your God, has anointed You

    and poured out the oil of bliss on You

    more than on any of Your friends.”

Jesus detests lawlessness and so should we.  To detest means to thrust away so we should remove ourselves from lawlessness and not support any person or thing that supports lawlessness.  Killing of babies in the womb is the epitome of lawlessness and we must not condone acceptance of this in any way.  We are to cherish righteousness and justice as Our Elder Brother does.

Where is your focus and priority?


Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020

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

18–19 So Timothy, my son, I am entrusting you with this responsibility, in keeping with the very first prophecies that were spoken over your life, and are now in the process of fulfillment in this great work of ministry, in keeping with the prophecies spoken over you. With this encouragement use your prophecies as weapons as you wage spiritual warfare by faith and with a clean conscience. For there are many who reject these virtues and are now destitute of the true faith, 20 such as Hymenaeus and Alexander who have fallen away. I have delivered them both over to Satan to be rid of them and to teach them to no longer blaspheme!

Prophecies given to us are conditional and based on our willingness to accept them and bring them forth by active faith.  The greater the prophecy toward us, the greater our faith needs to be.

True prophecies arise out of FATHER’S Divine Intent for us and are written in our “books” residing in Heaven.  We always have the right to reject them since FATHER gives us choice to direct our lives.  HE does this out of Agape Love for us.  You and I are not robots thus we are given the ability to decide that path we wish to follow: life or death, good or evil.  If that were not so, prophecies would be meaningless and of no value.

I have the responsibility to protect those prophecies given to me while they are in the process of being fulfilled.  It is never too late to press in by faith on behalf of those prophecies specifically directed to you.  These prophecies are part of your arsenal while in the midst of spiritual warfare.

Paul also wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians 10:

3–4 For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with Divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide.

We must not allow ourselves to be manipulated for FATHER once told me “manipulation is of the devil” and, “negotiation is manipulation.”  We are to employ spiritual weapons to dismantle and expose those defenses where people hide.  We must not allow past relationships to hinder our willingness to walk in Truth else we will begin walking a life of compromise and restrict Divine power from flowing through us.

5 We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One. 6 Since we are armed with such dynamic weaponry, we stand ready to punish any trace of rebellion, as soon as you choose complete obedience.

Demons cannot operate in Truth.  Their power is in deception so they have to get you to believe something that’s wrong.  Spiritual warfare is saying “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions.  They attempt to enter you by a thought or a feeling.  When you focus on the Word, Truth protects you against those thoughts and feelings for you know the Truth and it keeps you free from bondage.

We must build ourselves up in the most Holy faith by renewing our minds through The Word.  We must pray in The Holy Spirit as well.  This life of protection and warfare cannot be achieved by occasional study and intermittent prayer.  You are either all in or you’re out for war has no timeouts

There were five wise virgins and five foolish virgins.  All were waiting for the return of Jesus.  The five wise virgins were committed to keeping their oil trimmed thus they were not the occasional Christians who focused on worldly matters.  The five foolish virgins had different priorities which caused them to miss out and were left to their own devices.  Yes, there is a separating of believers occurring now.  It is not “business as usual” so don’t just survive, instead thrive.  There is a war going on and we are meant to be overcomers in battle.

Those who follow Q have surely seen this post dated yesterday afternoon at 12:29:37 EST:

Strengthen my faith, Lord. Forgive my sins, so that I may be clean in your righteousness. Make me brave, so I can stand and fight the spiritual battles in my life and in our world. Give me your wisdom and discernment so I won’t be caught off guard. Together, Lord, we’ll win, because in truth, you already have. While evil still roams, the power of Your name and Your blood rises up to defeat and bring us victory against every evil planned against us. While malicious actions may disturb us, we use the armor of God You have given us to stand firm. You will bring justice in due time for all the harm and needless violence aimed at Your children. Until then, we remain in Your presence, aligned with Your purposes, and we look to You as our Supreme Commander and Protector. Help us to avoid temptation, and deliver us from evil, Lord. You are the Mighty One, the One Who will ultimately bring all evil to light. With You, Jesus, we are safe. Amen.

“He, she, or they” are definitely tracking with what The Holy Spirit is giving me to write… not unexpected.
