Eliminating Constraints

Sunday, February 28th, 2021

Religious people cannot control a Spirit-filled believer.  The Holy Spirit leads us into all Truth and we no longer submit to others who want to control us so that we would submit to their agendas.  When the adversary loses control, you have been set free to submit to The Holy Spirit in all areas of your life.  It is your decision whom you shall follow.  As for me, I purpose to submit fully to The Holy Spirit so I can imitate MY FATHER in every aspect of my life.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 5:

5 Be imitators of God in everything you do, for then you will represent your Father as His beloved Sons and Daughters. 2 And continue to walk surrendered to the extravagant Love of Christ, for He surrendered His life as a sacrifice for us. His great Love for us was pleasing to God, like an aroma of adoration—a sweet healing fragrance.

Each of us should ask the question, “Am I imitating My Heavenly Father as I encounter others on a daily basis?”  This is the epitome of Agape Love toward mankind.  Only those who have matured in Christ will see this as a priority in the daily pursuit of being led by The Holy Spirit.

These writings are meant to move us from our present spiritual state to a higher, intimate state with The Holy Spirit where we rely on THE SPIRIT in all things.  When we do, the things of the world are no longer priorities and our interest level in them moves to zero.  We become more interested in the deep mysteries of GOD than the latest temporary focus of the world.  As these deep mysteries are revealed, we become equipped to minister to others and build them up.

Paul recorded by The Holy Spirit in 1st Corinthians chapter 14:

1 It is good that you are enthusiastic and passionate about spiritual gifts, especially prophecy. 2 When someone speaks in Tongues, no one understands a word he says, because he’s not speaking to people, but to God—he is speaking intimate mysteries in the Spirit.

3 But when someone prophesies, he speaks to encourage people, to build them up, and to bring them comfort. 4 The one who speaks in Tongues advances his own spiritual progress, while the one who prophesies builds up the church.

5 I would be delighted if you all spoke in Tongues, but I desire even more that you impart prophetic revelation to others. Greater gain comes through the one who prophesies than the one who speaks in Tongues, unless there is interpretation so that it builds up the entire church.

6 My dear friends, what good is it if I come to you always speaking in Tongues? But if I come with a clear revelation from God, or with insight, or with a prophecy, or with a clear teaching, I can enrich you.

In a public setting, we should focus on prophesying whether in Tongues and interpretation or by the gift of prophecy.  This is an impartation of Agape Love toward others as we publicly minister FATHER’S Love and restoration to those who have ears to hear.  As I am built up in a private setting, I become equipped to minister in a public setting with a boldness that rises up in THE SPIRIT.  There is no hesitancy since I have the confidence in The Holy Spirit inside of me.

In 1st Thessalonians chapter 5, Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit:

19 Never restrain or put out the fire of the Holy Spirit. 20 And don’t be one who scorns prophecies, 21 but be faithful to examine them by putting them to the test, and afterward hold tightly to what has proven to be right. 22 Avoid every appearance of evil.

23 Now, may the GOD of peace and harmony set you apart, making you completely Holy. And may your entire being—spirit, soul, and body—be kept completely flawless in the appearing of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. 24 The One who calls you by name is trustworthy and will thoroughly complete His work in you.

Let us not restrain The Holy Spirit in any way as we seek to walk according to the direct leading of The Holy Spirit in ALL THINGS.  I purpose to be sensitive to THE SPIRIT even in the small and seemingly insignificant matters.  This commitment increases my sensitivity to the next level.  Jesus stated this level of sensitivity when He said that He spoke and did nothing except as directed by FATHER.  He is Our Example.  Men cannot control our words or actions when we are fully led by THE SPIRIT and our ministry cannot be constrained thus The Kingdom of GOD will expand under our watch.

Additional Benefits Of Tongues

Saturday, February 27th, 2021

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 10:

44 While Peter was speaking, the Holy Spirit cascaded over all those listening to his message. 45 The Jewish brothers who had accompanied Peter were astounded that the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out on people who weren’t Jews, 46 for they heard them speaking in supernaturally given languages and passionately praising God (extolling and magnifying GOD).

47 Peter said, “How could anyone object to these people being baptized? For they have received the Holy Spirit just as we have.” 48 So he instructed them to be baptized in the power of the Name of Jesus, the Anointed One.

After their baptism, they asked Peter to stay with them for a few more days

Another manifestation of receiving and speaking in Tongues given to us by The Holy Spirit is we passionately magnify GOD

Speaking in Tongues worships GOD in a most reverent fashion for we have submitted ourselves to HIS Spirit.  This form of worship takes the “I” out of worshipping FATHER and focuses all the attention on HIM.  If you consider the lyrics of many “worship” songs of the past, they have too much attention focused on us rather than exalting FATHER… I this and I that.  Speaking in Tongues exalts FATHER through HIS Holy Spirit and produces a purity of worship when we realize this benefit!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

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 God with emotional sighs too deep for words.

27 God, 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 God for us, HIS Holy ones, in perfect harmony with God’s plan and our destiny.

28 So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are HIS Lovers who have been called to fulfill HIS designed purpose.

Another manifestation of The Holy Spirit is to empower us to completely fulfill our designed purpose (aka Divine Destiny). 

We will pray out the Will of GOD and those Words from HIS Inmost Heart when spoken forth, produce seed in our hearts for the purpose of manifesting good fruit in our lives.

In Jude, it is written by The Holy 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 (praying in Tongues).

Another manifestation of The Holy Spirit is to build up our most Holy faith.

This is pure undefiled faith.  Faith from GOD is a gift from Heaven and it is not tainted by man’s understanding or bias.  When we are praying out the mysteries and the Truth from Heaven, our faith is built up.  As a result, our faith is undefiled and we will develop great and fully matured faith as we continue to pray in The Holy Spirit. 

Now you know why there is such resistance to speaking in Tongues by those who are yielding to the adversary.  The adversary knows what empowerment comes to the believer when he or she is baptized in The Holy Spirit and understands the various manifestations and associated benefits that this baptism brings.

Moving Into Unity

Friday, February 26th, 2021

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 2:

2 And when the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all assembled together in one place,

2 When suddenly there came a sound from Heaven like the rushing of a violent tempest blast, and it filled the whole house in which they were sitting.

3 And there appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were separated and distributed and which settled on each one of them.

4 And they were all filled (diffused throughout their souls) with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other (different, foreign) languages (tongues), as the Spirit kept giving them clear and loud expression [in each tongue in appropriate words].

5 Now there were then residing in Jerusalem Jews, devout and God-fearing men from every country under heaven.

6 And when this sound was heard, the multitude came together and they were astonished and bewildered, because each one heard them [the apostles] speaking in his own [particular] dialect.

7 And they were beside themselves with amazement, saying, Are not all these who are talking Galileans?

8 Then how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own (particular) dialect to which we were born?  AMPL

The first manifestation of The Holy Spirit was unity among the 120.  The fire shows us they were ignited and fire is meant to bring forth complete purification thus making us without spot or wrinkle.  Being fully led by The Holy Spirit brings us into purity and removes all the dross we accumulated in the past.  We rescind and nullify any past agreements with the adversary as The Holy Spirit reveals those errors to us.  This is why we can declare “the case is closed” to our past life thus we are truly new creations in Christ!

In John chapter 20, Jesus spoke:

19 That evening, the disciples gathered together. And because they were afraid of reprisals from the Jewish leaders, they had locked the doors to the place where they met. But suddenly Jesus appeared among them and said, “Peace to you!” 20 Then He showed them the wounds of his hands and his side—they were overjoyed to see the Lord with their own eyes!

21 Jesus repeated his greeting, “Peace to you!” And he told them, “Just as the Father has sent Me, I’m now sending you.” 22 Then, taking a deep breath, He blew on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 I send you to preach the forgiveness of sins—and people’s sins will be forgiven. But if you don’t proclaim the forgiveness of their sins, they will remain guilty.”

Jesus was preparing the disciples to receive The Holy Spirit which was inside Him.  He commanded them to “Receive the Holy Spirit.”  What was the purpose?  It was and is to preach the forgiveness of sins, the Gospel.  This event occurred during the forty days of Jesus teaching them about The Kingdom.  Receiving The Holy Spirit was central to this forty day teaching session.

What does it mean to pray in THE SPIRIT where miracles happen?  It means that you are not able to do anything without GOD WHO resides in you as the manifestation of The Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit reveals the Heart of GOD and as we pray in THE SPIRIT, we receive revelation contained in HIS Heart applicable to us.  Paul explained this as he wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1st Corinthians chapter 2:

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.

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.

Paul proclaimed that he spoke in Tongues more than you all.  In the above passage, he had fully embraced the revelation revealed to him AND implemented it in his life.  He was empowered to record the revelations given to him and distributed to us in the form of the Epistles which comprise 2/3 of the New Testament.  His Source was and is The Holy Spirit WHO reveals FATHER’S Heart and deepest mysteries toward us who have decided to be led by The Holy Spirit in all things. 

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. 16 For

Who has ever intimately known the Mind of the Lord Yahweh well enough to become HIS counselor?

Christ has, and we possess Christ’s perceptions.

We believers possess the Holy Spirit, who reveals the thoughts and purposes of Christ. The revelation of the kingdom of God that Jesus preached was not understood by the intellect of men but by those who welcomed His Truth. Humanly speaking, no one can understand the mysteries of God without the Holy Spirit. Those who have the Holy Spirit now possess the perceptions of Christ’s mind (the Mind of Christ) and can implement His purposes on the earth.

The unwise virgins, the goats, and the tares are disqualified from receiving these revelations for they make no sense to them.  The wise virgins had realized the value of being led by The Holy Spirit and knew this could not be transferred to those who had failed to grasp the importance of this means of receiving what The Holy Spirit had to offer them, thus they were disqualified.

Choking Points?

Thursday, February 25th, 2021

Do you have a choking point in your walk with GOD?

Luke wrote by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 1:

3 To them also Jesus showed Himself alive after His passion (His suffering in the garden and on the cross) by [a series of] many convincing demonstrations [unquestionable evidences and infallible proofs], appearing to them during forty days and talking [to them] about the things of the Kingdom of God.  AMPL

FATHER spoke Words and THE SPIRIT OF GOD made the Words come to full manifestation.

4 And while being in their company and eating with them, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised, Of which [He said] you have heard Me speak.

5 For John baptized with water, but not many days from now you shall be baptized with (placed in, introduced into) the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is very important to Jesus for He commanded the disciples to wait for what FATHER had promised in John chapter 14:

15 “Loving me empowers you to obey my commands. 16–17 And I will ask the Father and HE will give you another Savior, the Holy Spirit of Truth, Who will be to you a friend just like Me—and He will never leave you. The world won’t receive Him because they can’t see him or know him. But you will know Him intimately, because He will make his home in you and will live inside you.

We are to know The Holy Spirit in an intimate fashion because He lives inside us when we invite Him in.  Did Jesus only speak the Words FATHER gave Him?  Absolutely, so we must accept the Truth that The Holy Spirit is FATHER’S Divine Intent to dwell inside each of us who are HIS sheep.  Jesus continues:

18 “I promise that I will never leave you helpless or abandon you as orphans—I will come back to you! 19 Soon I will leave this world and they will see me no longer, but you will see me, because I will live again, and you will come alive too. 20 So when that day comes, you will know that I am living in the Father and that you are one with Me, for I will be living in you. 21 Those who truly Love Me are those who obey My commands. Whoever passionately Loves me will be passionately Loved by my Father. And I will passionately Love you in return and will manifest My life within you.”

Are you willing to fully accept and embrace these Words Jesus spoke, or do you have a choking point concerning being fully led by The Holy Spirit in such an intimacy?  There is a trusted, open, and close relationship when one is intimate with you.  There are no barriers or defenses placed between you and the One you seek to unconditionally Love.  You become an open book!

Jesus responded to the following question and spoke in Acts chapter 1:

6 So when they were assembled, they asked Him, Lord, is this the time when You will reestablish the Kingdom and restore it to Israel?

7 He said to them, It is not for you to become acquainted with and know what time brings [the things and events of time and their definite periods] or fixed years and seasons (their critical niche in time), which the Father has appointed (fixed and reserved) by HIS own choice and authority and personal power.

8 But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.

9 And when He had said this, even as they were looking [at Him], He was caught up, and a cloud received and carried Him away out of their sight.

After forty days of teaching the disciples about the Kingdom, they still wanted to focus on timing.  Jesus clearly stated that only FATHER knew when the Kingdom was to be reestablished on earth.  Why should we focus on timing when Jesus clearly indicated not to do so.  Jesus returned their focus to receiving The Holy Spirit Who was and is to establish the Kingdom in our hearts resulting in us expanding the Kingdom on earth.  This is His stated priority.

The disciples’ priority was to find out “when” and Jesus’ priority was and is to direct them to “who” and “what to do” when He departs.  They were focusing on the physical and Jesus was leading them to the Spiritual.  That priority has not changed!

When people place such a priority on “when” at the expense of acting on one’s intended destiny, they become fruitless and simply do nothing to expand the Kingdom.  Some even quit their jobs and sold their belongings expecting the immediate return of Christ.  When it didn’t happen, they were devastated.  They listened to false prophets who promoted such an expectation for those who were taken in by man’s logic and reasoning rather than being led by The Holy Spirit.

When The Holy Spirit came in Acts chapter 2, the reversal of Babel occurred.  Men were previously bent on evil but now by The Holy Spirit, men could and should walk in unity by submitting to The Holy Spirit.  This is the one common language we can all speak and be led into full unity.  What will be the result?  Nothing shall be impossible!

FATHER had to come down to Babel and stop the unity among the people since they were intending to use that unity for unrighteousness.  On the day of Pentecost, HE restored our ability to come into unity so that we could walk in complete righteousness and fulfill our Divine destiny.  The results would benefit mankind and lead people to Christ.  Those who are led by The Holy Spirit produce good fruit and in turn people are drawn to life and Holiness.

Each day I ask The Holy Spirit “what” He wants me to do, say, and communicate to others.  I also ask “when” He wants me to act and “where” He wants me to go.  I don’t concern myself with “why” since He will tell me in due time when I have “the need to know”.  He will also instruct me “how” to do certain things even if they don’t seem logical or reasonable… and that is no longer an issue as it once was when I was young and immature.

I now rely totally on The Holy Spirit to sustain me in all that I do.  I no longer want to have an opinion but only want to walk in Absolute Truth, and that only comes from Above.  I trust you are moving into that same mindset.  Man’s solutions to the problems we currently face are only temporary in nature.  The Holy Spirit’s solutions are permanent.

Man’s doctrines outside the Perfect Will of GOD create choking points thus keeping people from full maturity in Christ.  Any form of rejecting The Holy Spirit is the primary choking point from full maturity.  We are to be intimate with The Holy Spirit, not a casual acquaintance.  Remove any doctrine that is contrary to the Words of Jesus spoken in the above passages.

Witnessing The Supernatural

Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

On the Mount of Transfiguration FATHER gave explicit instructions and spoke the Words “Listen to My Son” thus we should heed HIS directive without exception.  Prior to this, the focus had been on the Law and Prophets as the disciples had interaction with the Pharisees for this had been all they had to live by according to the Jewish faith and customs.  WHO better to expand their understanding and elevate their mindset other than FATHER HIMSELF!

In Matthew chapter 18, Jesus spoke:

18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

19 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

Jesus had taken three witnesses, Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up on a high mountain by themselves where He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.  These were to be the three witnesses according to Jewish Law found in Deuteronomy chapter 17.

Peter was there at the Mount of Transfiguration and later he wrote of this experience and direct encounter with Our Heavenly Father in his 2nd epistle chapter 1:

12 I won’t hesitate to continually remind you of these Truths, even though you are aware of them and are well established in the present measure of Truth you have already embraced. 13 And as long as I live I will continue to awaken you with this reminder, 14 since our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, has clearly revealed that my departure is near. 15 Indeed, I’m passionate to share these things with you so that you will always remember them after my exodus from this life.

Peter continued to testify of his experience on the Mount of Transfiguration and nothing could take away that testimony.  He had a firsthand experience hearing Our Heavenly Father speak concerning His Beloved Son Jesus Christ.  I am fully persuaded as Peter is, that this is a primary Key of The Kingdom and we should ponder his testimony often for it will keep you “awake”.

16 We were not retelling some masterfully crafted legend when we informed you of the power and appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, for we saw His magnificence and splendor unveiled before our very eyes. 17 Yes, Father God lavished upon Him radiant glory and honor when HIS distinct Voice spoke out of the realm of majestic glory, endorsing Him with these words: This is MY cherished Son, marked by MY Love. All MY delight is found in Him! 18 And we ourselves heard that voice resound from the heavens while we were with Him on the Holy mountain.

If we will keep this “key” before us and remind ourselves often of Its importance and implication, we will promote growth in our maturity as we study Scripture and keep It in perspective of this testimony:  FATHER’S delight is found in the Words and actions of Jesus Who is specifically marked by HIS LOVE and HIS delight.  Can it be any plainer than this?  Peter continues:

19 And so we have been given the prophetic Word—the written message of the prophets, made more reliable and fully validated by the confirming Voice of GOD on the Mount of Transfiguration. And you will continue to do well if you stay focused on it. For this prophetic message is like a piercing light shining in a gloomy place until the dawning of a new day, when the Morning Star rises in your hearts.

Peter urges us to STAY FOCUSED and not allow ourselves to become complacent of what was said on the Mount of Transfiguration!

20 You must understand this at the outset: Interpretation of scriptural prophecy requires the Holy Spirit, for it does not originate from someone’s own imagination. 21 No true prophecy comes from human initiative but is inspired by the moving of the Holy Spirit upon those who spoke the message that came from GOD.

Peter attests to the importance of The Holy Spirit in our lives.  Those who ascend in the revelation of Agape Love understand the importance of being led by The Holy Spirit moment by moment.  When The Holy Spirit speaks to me and instructs me to act, no matter how inconvenient it seems at the time, I purpose to simply act without question or discussion.  As I train myself in this manner, the windows of Heaven open up to a greater degree and I am blessed by this obedience to The Holy Spirit’s directives.

Paul understood this as well when he wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians chapter 2:

1 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.

Our faith is intended to be established by trusting in FATHER’S Almighty Power and not by the eloquent words of some Bible “expert” who impresses us with his knowledge of Scripture, eloquent speech, or lofty wisdom derived from his own logic. 

I have been taken in by such speakers only to find there was no fruit to be found thus it turned out to be a waste of time.  I would rather you benefit from my past experience than to go through it yourself.

Both Peter and Paul had glorious experiences with Jesus when He affirmed His Words to them.  These testimonies were recorded for our benefit so that we would not be led astray by some masterfully crafted legend promoted by men who rely on their worldly wisdom rather than the supernatural testimonies of reliable witnesses.  Let us also pay close attention to these firsthand witnesses as we continue on the Highway of Holiness and establish the Kingdom of GOD on earth.

Impoverished Kids Update

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021

Yesterday, Servias acquired and distributed food cards for the impoverished kids. These food cards allow the families to purchase groceries at a local supermarket. The area recently had record low temperatures and snow. These families reached out for assistance even though the kids were unable to attend school. They were in desperate need of food and the counselors in our distribution channel were able to assist them by distributing our food cards. What a blessing!

Thank you for your continued support in helping these kids. 100% of your contributions are being directed to this “seed” we are planting on behalf of the Kingdom. It is all about Agape Love!

Love, Unity, And Glory

Monday, February 22nd, 2021

In the following prayer, Jesus prayed to Our Heavenly Father that we walk in unity, glory, and Love.  If there are any Words of Jesus that we should fully embrace and walk in accordingly, this prayer is it!

In John chapter 17, Jesus prayed the following for you and me:

20 “And I ask not only for these disciples,

    but also for all those who will one day

    believe in Me through their message.

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.

24 “Father, I ask that YOU allow everyone that YOU have given to Me

    to be with Me where I am!

    Then they will see My full glory

    the very splendor YOU have placed upon Me

    because YOU have Loved Me even before the beginning of time.

25 “YOU are My righteous Father,

    but the unbelieving world has never known YOU

    in the perfect way that I know you!

    And all those who believe in Me

    also know that YOU have sent Me!

26 I have revealed to them who YOU are

    and I will continue to make YOU even more real to them,

    so that they may experience the same endless Love

    that YOU have for Me,

    for YOUR Love will now live in them, even as I live in them!”

You and I should refer to this prayer daily since it is intended to manifest fully and completely in our lives.  We should accept nothing less.  On the Mount of Transfiguration FATHER spoke the Words “Listen to My Son” thus we should heed HIS directive without exception.  Peter was there and later he wrote by The Holy Spirit in his 2nd epistle 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.

Peter knew the importance of Jesus’ prayer to FATHER and he encouraged us to move into full maturity of Agape Love, unity, and glory.  He continued:

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.

Peter spoke of these virtues already existing within us since The Holy Spirit resides in us.  What then is the issue?  It is our inactivity, blindness, or lack of acceptance of Jesus’ prayer.  We have no excuse for being fruitless.

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.

Let us not fall into the excuse of “lack” or blindness.  Embrace the prayer today.

The Teachable Heart

Sunday, February 21st, 2021

We are meant to have boundaries and discipline in walking out our Divine destiny and we must have a teachable heart.  Past doctrines in our mindset must be assessed to determine whether they are wrong and in error according to the deep mysteries of GOD’S Kingdom realm.  The Holy Spirit will have no issue in revealing those inaccurate past doctrines if you have a teachable heart.  As for me, I simply want to walk in Absolute Truth.  My past opinions are now of no value and I do not seek to develop new ones as I pursue the Kingdom of GOD.

After speaking forth the parable of the soils in the heart, Jesus spoke to His disciples in Luke chapter 8:

9 Later His disciples came to Jesus and asked him privately what deeper meaning was found in this parable. 10 He said, “You have been given a teachable heart to perceive the secret, hidden mysteries of God’s Kingdom realm. But to those who don’t have a listening heart, My Words are merely stories. Even though they have eyes, they are blind to the true meaning of what I say, and even though they listen, they won’t receive full revelation.”

What was the problem with the unwise virgins?  They HAD TO RELY on the wise virgins since they had become slack in their pursuit of The Kingdom.  They had not relied on The Holy Spirit and when the time had come, it was too late for them.  The wise virgins could not help them make up for this lost time of pursuing the deeper mysteries.  Why do you think FATHER has had me write nearly 4,000 blogs through this site? 

Part of my Divine destiny was and is to teach as evidenced since the late 1970’s.  In fact, when I taught the “young married couples” on the Sons of GOD revelation found in the Gospel of John in the mid-1990’s, I was confronted by the church leadership.  After the third rejection of this revelation, FATHER had my family depart.  This began a 10 year period of preparation for the current teaching of Agape Love.  As you can appreciate, FATHER does not get in a hurry.  Clearly, HE worked on my patience! 

For some reason, HE utilizes the “decade timeframe” with me.  I may be a little slow compared to many of the readers. 🙂 However, I would not change a thing and am grateful for HIS maturing process in my life.  It is not how you start, but how you finish the race.

Mark recorded by The Holy Spirit in chapter 9:

1 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the Truth, there are some standing here now who won’t experience death until they see God’s Kingdom realm manifest with power!”

2 After six days, Jesus took Peter and the two brothers, Jacob and John, and hiked up a high mountain to be alone. And Jesus’ appearance was dramatically altered, for He was transfigured before their very eyes! 3 His clothing sparkled and became glistening white—whiter than any bleach in the world could make them. 4 Then suddenly, right in front of them, Moses and Elijah appeared, and they spoke with Jesus.

5 Peter blurted out, “Beautiful Teacher, this is so amazing to see the three of you together! Why don’t we stay here and set up three shelters: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah?” 6 (For all of the disciples were in total fear, and Peter didn’t have a clue what to say.) 7 Just then, a radiant cloud began to spread over them, enveloping them all. And God’s voice suddenly spoke from the cloud, saying, “This is MY most dearly Loved Son—always listen to Him!

FATHER spoke directly to the three disciples and gave them explicit orders to listen and pay close attention to the Words of Jesus.  Can there be any misunderstanding in what FATHER said?  The three disciples were awestruck by the supernatural event and had no clue of how to respond.  They enjoyed the experience but it did not immediately change their hearts.

What happened afterward?  The adversary was causing controversy as Jesus and the three disciples were returning from a most glorious event.  Distraction is a primary weapon of the demons and none of the disciples were yet responding to the Words of Jesus.

9 As they all hiked down the mountain together, Jesus ordered them, “Don’t tell anyone of what you just witnessed. Wait until the Son of Man is raised from the dead.” 10 So they kept it to themselves, puzzled over what Jesus meant about rising from the dead.

11 Then they asked him, “Why do the religious scholars insist that Elijah must come before the Messiah?”

12 He answered them, “They’re right. Elijah must come first to put everything in order. And what about all that is written about the Son of Man? It is true that He must endure many sufferings and be rejected. 13 So Elijah has already appeared, just as it was prophesied, and they did to him whatever they pleased.”

Jesus revealed to those disciples His anticipated death and resurrection and their hearts were not able to discern His Words for they were puzzled.  We look back and marvel at their unbelief and doubt.  Their experience did not change them for they had no discernment.  In effect, they were entertained by the event.

14 Now when they came down the mountain to the other nine disciples, they noticed a large crowd of people gathered around them, with the religious scholars arguing with them. 15 The crowd was astonished to see Jesus Himself walking toward them, so they immediately ran to welcome Him.

16 “What are you arguing about with the religious scholars?” He asked them.

17 A man spoke up out of the crowd. “Teacher,” he said, “I have a son possessed by a demon that makes him mute. I brought him here to You, Jesus. 18 Whenever the demon takes control of him, it knocks him down, and he foams at the mouth and gnashes his teeth, and his body becomes stiff as a board. I brought him to Your disciples, hoping they could deliver him, but they were not strong enough.”

19 Jesus said to the crowd, “Why are you such a faithless people?  How much longer must I remain with you and put up with your unbelief? Now, bring the boy to me.”

Our hearts must be changed until we are fully aligned with the Word of GOD.  We must set apart whatever distractions are set before us.  In the U.S., the masses are focused on entertainment in some form and the adversary is more than willing to oblige.  Interactive games, 24 hour TV with a multitude of channels and topics are meant to distract us from the Words of Jesus along with the power and authority associated with those Words.

The adversary creates a need and then provides a worldly solution to that need.   A faithless generation falls into that trap and looks to the world for answers rather than The Word Who was made flesh and dwelt among us.  The Holy Spirit was given to us to enable us to discern such entrapments. 

Think about the current pandemic and the world’s solution to it.  Would Jesus respond to this pandemic by wearing a mask, socially distance, and give His body to a vaccine with no true testing history?  Knowing Him, He would respond “How much longer must I remain with you and put up with your unbelief?”

We MUST change and come to full maturity.  More entertainment will not increase our maturity.  We must discern the condition of our hearts and continue to change and correct our priorities.  FATHER gave the three disciples explicit instructions and we are meant to respond to HIS directive as well.

Jesus confronted the situation with the demon-possessed boy.

25 Now when Jesus saw that the crowd was quickly growing larger, He commanded the demon, saying, “Deaf and mute spirit, I command you to come out of him and never enter him again!”

26 The demon shrieked and threw the boy into terrible seizures and finally came out of him! As the boy lay there, looking like a corpse, everyone thought he was dead. 27 But Jesus stooped down, gently took his hand, and raised him up to his feet, and he stood there completely set free!

28 Afterwards, when Jesus arrived at the house, his disciples asked Him in private, “Why couldn’t we cast out the demon?”

29 He answered them, “This type of powerful spirit can only be cast out by fasting and prayer.”

The nine disciples were unprepared.  The three returning disciples were also ill-equipped to deal with the demon.  Jesus gave us the answer to dealing with the kingdom of darkness and it takes serious commitment.  This is the answer to the adversary’s attempts to keep us in bondage to his devices.  This is all out war and we must be vigilant and not allow the distractions to keep us from our Divine destiny.  We must not allow ourselves to be denied.  Press in!

What Will He Find?

Saturday, February 20th, 2021

Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 18:

18 One day Jesus taught the apostles to keep praying and never stop or lose hope. He shared with them this illustration:

2 “In a certain town there was a civil judge, a thick-skinned and godless man who had no fear of others’ opinions. 3 And there was a poor widow in that town who kept pleading with the judge, ‘Grant me justice and protect me against my oppressor!’

4–5 “He ignored her pleas for quite some time, but she kept asking. Eventually he said to himself, ‘This widow keeps annoying me, demanding her rights, and I’m tired of listening to her. Even though I’m not a religious man and don’t care about the opinions of others, I’ll just get her off my back by answering her claims for justice and I’ll rule in her favor. Then she’ll leave me alone.’”

6 The Lord continued, “Did you hear what the ungodly judge said—that he would answer her persistent request? 7 Don’t you know that God, the True Judge, will grant justice to all of HIS Chosen Ones (true believers) who cry out to HIM night and day? HE will pour out his Spirit upon them. He will not delay to answer you and give you what you ask for. 8 God will give swift Justice to those who don’t give up. So be ever praying, ever expecting, just like the widow was with the judge. Yet when the Son of Man comes back, will He find this kind of persistent faithfulness in his people?

I say “yes” to Jesus’ question of “when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”  I expect FATHER’S Justice to prevail on earth as It does in Heaven.  One of the foundations of HIS Throne is Justice as revealed in Psalm 89:

14 YOUR glorious throne rests on a foundation

of Righteousness and Justice.

Grace and Truth are the attendants who go before you.

You and I have a covenant with FATHER established through Jesus Christ.  Therefore we have the rights and expectations issued from the Throne which includes justice here on earth.  We need to expect and be persistent in our expectation of results just like the parable reveals.  This requires faith!

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

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.

This is why I urge all believers to pray in THE SPIRIT ever day!

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.

Man cannot judge me for he cannot discern Spiritual things.  Only FATHER can judge me for HE is able to scrutinize and evaluate what is in my heart.  When HE judges me, HE corrects me and my path thus leading me to the Highway of Holiness.  This is what revelation is all about for once we receive revelation, we are able to discern our past error and make needed adjustments.  Oh, how many past doctrines had to be nullified and voided from my mindset!  I prefer to judge myself by responding to The Holy Spirit revealing fresh revelation and correction

How else can I truly be in unity with FATHER?  How else can I be in true unity with mature Sons and Daughters?

Jesus spoke this Truth in John chapter 14:

12 “I tell you this timeless Truth: The person who follows Me in faith, believing in Me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with My Father! 13 For I will do whatever you ask Me to do when you ask Me in My Name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to HIM. 14 Ask me anything in My Name, and I will do it for you!”

Jesus expects us to walk in and manifest faith in these last times… in all areas.  This is what a true follower (believer) does.  As we finally grasp THE FEAR OF GOD and walk in IT, we will manifest those miracles Jesus refers to in the above passage.  This is an absolute necessity on our part.

Robbing HIM!

Friday, February 19th, 2021

Malachi wrote by THE SPIRIT in chapter 3:

8 ​​“Will a man rob God?

​​Yet you have robbed Me!

​​But you say,

​‘​In what way have we robbed You?’

​​In tithes and offerings.

9 ​​You are cursed with a curse,

​​For you have robbed Me,

​​Even this whole nation.

10 ​​Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,

​​That there may be food in MY House,

​​And try ME now in this,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts,

​​“If I will not open for you the windows of Heaven

​​And pour out for you such blessing

​​That there will not be room enough to receive it.

11 ​​“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes,

​​So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,

​​Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts;

12 ​​And all nations will call you blessed,

​​For you will be a delightful land,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts.

Many believers will argue this passage away as though FATHER changed HIS WORD once Jesus went to the cross and was resurrected. The tithe has always been FATHER’S since the Garden where HE established the difference between HIM and Adam and Eve by placing one tree forbidden for them to freely eat from.  Though they were made in THEIR Image, there was one difference- the fruit of that tree which was in the center of the Garden.  This reminded Adam and Eve that they were not GOD.  HE could handle the issues associated with good and evil but they could not.

The Higher and the lower were established in the Garden and that has not changed… ever!  The tithe is of the same MINDSET of FATHER.  HE placed us on earth and to remind us of THE HIGHER, the tithe is HIS and always has been.

What challenges that TRUTH?  Greed, for the love of money is the root of all evil.  Man can rationalize away this TRUTH has he has done with many other ABSOLUTE TRUTHS in HIS WORD but IT still stands today and we will be judge accordingly… in Love of course.

13 ​​“Your words have been harsh against Me,”

​​Says the LORD,

​​“Yet you say,

​‘​What have we spoken against You?’

14 ​​You have said,

​‘​It is useless to serve God;

​​What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance,

​​And that we have walked as mourners

​​Before the LORD of hosts?

15 ​​So now we call the proud blessed,

​​For those who do wickedness are raised up;

​​They even tempt God and go free.’ ”

A Book of Remembrance was and is being written on behalf of those who FEAR THE LORD.  Does this sound familiar?  Do you really think that FATHER is  recording your life but leaving out the area of tithing and generosity toward others?

16 ​​Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another,

​​And the LORD listened and heard them;

​​So a book of remembrance was written before Him

​​For those who FEAR THE LORD

​​And who meditate on HIS Name.

17 ​​“They shall be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts,

​​“On the day that I make them My jewels (special treasure).

​​And I will spare them

​​As a man spares his own son who serves him.”

18 ​​Then you shall again discern

​​Between the righteous and the wicked,

​​Between one who serves God

​​And one who does not serve Him.

It pays to serve GOD and the righteous know this as a certainty.  Those who are truly righteous and Holy have no issue in giving their tithes which is really FATHER’S to begin with.  Why would I withhold a tithe when it is not mine to begin with.  FATHER says it is robbery to hold onto the tithe.

Where should I give the tithe?  It is to be given to establish HIS Kingdom and represent HIS Divine Intent on earth.  This is why Servias receives and disburses tithes to those who are in desperate need- the extremely poor.

Why should I give tithes to churches who have sidestepped the Seven Spirits of GOD and do not acknowledge the critical ministry of The Holy Spirit?  Why should I support “clouds without rain”?  There are over 42,000 religions which build and promote their own agendas.  My tithe and offerings need to be placed where Agape Love is at the center of intent. 

Impoverished kids need to experience hope and that is why it is ordained by FATHER to give HIS TITHE to them.  They also need to experience unconditional Love.  HIS TITHE promotes this virtue.  Don’t you know that those who are commissioned to distribute our tithes also receiving blessings as they help these kids with our tithes?

My wife and I put our money where our mouths are tithe to Servias.  We also give additionally to cover expenses in order to keep your tithe at 100% toward the impoverished kids… and we give joyfully.  We want to be included FATHER’S special treasure (the jewels).

John wrote by The Holy Spirit in chapter 12:

4 But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, 5 “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” 6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it.

Both Jesus and John knew that Judas was stealing from the money box.  This showed that the intent of the money given directly to Jesus was meant to care for the poor yet greed by the betrayer stole the money.  Think about it!

FATHER is very explicit in Malachi chapter 3.  When I tithe, I acknowledge that I fear and reverence THE LORD with the firstfruits of my life.  How can you claim to FEAR THE LORD otherwise?

Yes, my wife and I give a monthly offering to another ministry who has the same heart as mine.  The man and wife who are at the center of this ministry take no salary but are also the chief “givers” to this ministry from the income derived from his business, past investments, and retirement.  I can attest that there is a purity when you are not a “hireling” to spread the Gospel.  You are above reproach.

I am not interested in ministering to:

The wolves.

The tares of the field.

Those who are “clouds without rain”. (having a form of godliness but denying its power)

The unwise virgins.

I am unwilling to be on the wrong side of Jesus in any fashion.  Now is the time for us to be “all in”.  How many times must we be warned before the door gets closed on those who are unwise in their actions or lack thereof?

Servias is all about promoting Agape Love and maturing the saints (aka the remnant, the elect).  Only wise virgins embrace FATHER’S WORD such as those mentioned in Malachi 3:16 above. 

We are at war with the adversary and we don’t need to fool around with the world’s agenda.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Timothy chapter 2:

3 Overcome every form of evil as a victorious soldier of Jesus the Anointed One. 4 For every soldier called to active duty must divorce himself from the distractions of this world so that he may fully satisfy THE ONE WHO chose him.

The Holy Spirit has been building a foundation for those who read and embrace these writings to become productive soldiers in the war we know face with the world.  Walking in THE FEAR OF THE LORD is critical to our success.  There are many facets to walking in this manner.  Tithing is one of them. 

Repent of past failures and I strongly recommend moving “onward and upward” as my friend Paul often quotes.  I don’t personally need your money for FATHER takes good care of my family as HE as promised in HIS Word.  This is all about being a “wise virgin” when the Bridegroom comes.  Don’t get locked out of the feast given to HIS special treasures mentioned above. Jesus will be looking at the fruit you manifest in your life!
