You and I are the hope of the world whether they realize it or not.

With Jesus, the devil’s in trouble.  Without Jesus, we’re in trouble.

Religion obstructs our perspective as it did during Jesus’ time on the earth.  If you were to read the Combined Gospels of Love by Arthur Hawkins, you would see that Jesus constantly challenged the Pharisees and their message of elitism.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 23:

1  Then Jesus addressed both the crowds and his disciples and said,

2 “The religious scholars and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ throne as the authorized interpreters of the Law.

3 So listen and follow what they teach, but don’t do what they do, for they tell you one thing and do another.

4 They tie on your backs an oppressive burden of religious obligations and insist that you carry it, but will never lift a finger to help ease your load.

5 Everything they do is done for show and to be noticed by others. They want to be seen as holy, so they wear oversized prayer boxes on their arms and foreheads with Scriptures inside, and wear extra-long tassels on their outer garments.

6 They crave the seats of highest honor at banquets and in their meeting places.

7 And how they love to be admired by men with their titles of respect, aspiring to be recognized in public and have others call them ‘Reverend.’

8 “But you are to be different from that. You are not to be called ‘master,’ for you have only one Master, and you are all brothers and sisters.

9 And you are not to be addressed as ‘father,’ for you have one Father, who is in heaven.

10 Nor are you to be addressed as ‘teacher,’ for you have one Teacher, the Anointed One.

11 The greatest among you will be the one who always serves others from the heart.

12 Remember this: If you have a lofty opinion of yourself and seek to be honored, you will be humbled. But if you have a modest opinion of yourself and choose to humble yourself, you will be honored.”

To find out where people are at, listen and watch.  Do they constantly exalt themselves or do they genuinely have your best interest at heart?

Jesus is the only Spiritual Teacher Who came back from the dead to prove His teaching!  Jesus is the only Spiritual Teacher Who taught His lessons and then performed signs and wonders to prove His message.  THIS IS THE BOTTOM LINE!!!

Jesus is confronted by a leper in Matthew chapter 8:

1  When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.

2 And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”

3 Then Jesus put out His Hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

4 And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Neither Aristotle nor Socrates could heal a leper with their philosophies.  Technology couldn’t heal the leper either.  Pharma isn’t able to heal though it could mask the symptoms to a degree.  The Pharisees had no solution.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 2:

12  that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

Without GOD, there is no hope.  With GOD, hope abounds.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 14:

19   “A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also.

20 At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who Loves Me. And he who Loves Me will be Loved by My Father, and I will Love him and manifest Myself to him.”

Where Jesus is, hope abounds since He is able to change lives and give people true hope and expectation of a better life.  Every other path is at best temporary in nature.  It all starts with Love.

Love First

Monday, January 30th, 2023

Devils and Jesus don’t live together in a Christian.

Jesus is Who the nefarious ones fear.  Why?  If Jesus comes to live in a person, the demons must depart.  The Holy Spirit will drive out a demon spirit.  We are to be dangerous to the devil.

Since I have become a witness to the Power of GOD through Jesus Christ, I am credible and can write these blogs to challenge you to “grow up” and no longer be a passive believer.  I have been near death five times and FATHER intervened each time on my behalf thus you can’t convince me that Jesus isn’t alive and well today, interceding on my behalf.

Most of those who currently control major TV networks do not want the Name of Jesus mentioned.  Why?  They are afraid of Who He is and what He can do in a person’s life.  His unconditional Love will change a person’s heart and eliminate a revenue stream for the lost.  Instead, the person expands the Kingdom of GOD and righteousness throughout the land.

Jesus is the Essence of Love and Calvary is all about Love whereas Pentecost is about Power from On High.  The revelation of Love always comes before power.  Many Christians have failed to grasp this revelation.  We need both!  Power without Love can be cruel.  The Pharisees revealed that reality to us in Scripture.

Hope is the picture of what we are to see by revelation knowledge, faith possesses it, but it must be based on Love.  Both faith and hope come by hearing The Word (aka Love) of GOD.  Hope gives us the picture of everything Jesus died for to provide us.  If you don’t see it, you can’t expect it in your life.  Love makes it possible.  Because of this Truth, the adversary does not want us exposed to the power in The Name of Jesus.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 1:

15  Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your Love for all the saints,

16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers:

17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,

18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power

20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the Heavenly places,

21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

With this understanding, we have a more in-depth revelation when Jesus spoke in John chapter 3:

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

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

Revelation Versus Knowledge

Sunday, January 29th, 2023

Would you rather have revelation or be an expert in knowledge of the Scripture?

Religion obstructs our perspective!  Think about it.  Paul is the perfect example.  He was the top upcoming Pharisee and was charged with eradicating what was thought to be a cult of Christian believers.  His education was superior to all others, and he would have earned his Ph.D. in Theology if it existed then.  Yet, he had no revelation even though he was an expert on the Old Testament.

It took a revelatory encounter with Jesus Himself to turn Saul into Paul, from an enemy to the vital supporter of Christ he became.  This is why we must not let a person with the prefix “Dr.” in front of his or her name determine the credibility of the message and/or writing being promoted. 

It is all about revelation from Above, not intellectual prowess or a person’s charismatic nature.  We must submit to The Holy Spirit in everything we hear and read.  The essence of Paul’s teachings is centered around Jesus being resurrected from the dead and is alive today.  Paul’s personal encounter with the resurrected Jesus changed him completely.  His doctorate in religion was of no consequence.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Corinthians chapter 15:

12  Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen.

14 And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.

15 Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up-if in fact the dead do not rise. 16 For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen.

17 And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!

18 Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.

19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.

Jesus’ resurrection separates Him from all the philosophers for they had no credible evidence to support their views.  Their teaching was and is vain, empty of Truth!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 1:

15  Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your Love for all the saints,

16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers:

17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,

18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power

20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

Is our faith in vain?  How big is Jesus in us?  Isn’t it all about our expectations and orientation of who we are in Christ?  It has nothing to do with studying constellations, Old Testament Law, types and shadows, or Biblical numerology.  I’ve been there and done that and missed vital aspects of Paul’s revelation.  Now, that is being corrected… thankfully!

It is all about Who we know, not what we know.

The Essence Of Our Message

Saturday, January 28th, 2023

The essence of the Christian message is that GOD raised Jesus from the dead and He is alive today.

Christianity differs from religions from around the world in this one Truth.  All the prophets of the various religions are dead and in the grave!

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 1:

1  The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

2 until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen,

3 to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

9 Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.

The number forty is significant, for it speaks of transformation and completeness through testing.  Jesus was tempted 40 days.  The deluge during Noah’s day lasted 40 days and nights.  Moses met with God for 40 days on Sinai.  Israel wandered for 40 years, and Elijah fasted for 40 days.  Jesus spent 40 days appearing to His disciples to teach them that a day of completeness and transformation had arrived.  It took them 40 days to comprehend that Christ’s Kingdom was spiritual not political.

Jesus spent 40 days changing the mindsets of the disciples who were entrenched in past teachings… after He was raised from the dead, after they had seen all the miracles of His ministry!  They had been focused on the expected political changes rather than the spiritual transformation Jesus taught.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 13:

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

Paul had firsthand experience with Jesus in His current spiritual state, what an excellent expert witness!

Jesus spoke in John chapter 20:

21 Jesus repeated his greeting, “Peace to you!” And He told them, “Just as the Father has sent Me, I’m now sending you.”

You also means us.

Mark recorded in his Gospel in chapter 16:

19  So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into Heaven, and sat down at the Right Hand of God.

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

We are commissioned to do the same.

Paul preached these simple Truths when he spoke by The Holy Spirit in 1st Corinthians chapter 15:

1  Dear friends, let me give you clearly the heart of the Gospel that I’ve preached to you-the Good News that you have heartily received and on which you stand.

2 For it is through the revelation of the Gospel that you are being saved, if you fasten your life firmly to the message I’ve taught you, unless you have believed in vain.

3 For I have shared with you what I have received and what is of utmost importance: The Messiah died for our sins, fulfilling the prophecies of the Scriptures.

4 He was buried in a tomb and was raised from the dead after three days, as foretold in the Scriptures.

5 Then He appeared to Peter the Rock and to the twelve apostles.

6 He also appeared to more than five hundred of his followers at the same time, most of whom are still alive as I write this, though a few have passed away.

7 Then He appeared to Jacob and to all the apostles.

8 Last of all he appeared in front of me, like one born prematurely, ripped from the womb.

9 Yes, I am the most insignificant of all the apostles, unworthy even to be called an apostle, because I hunted down believers and persecuted God’s church.

10 But God’s amazing grace has made me who I am! And His grace to me was not fruitless. In fact, I worked harder than all the rest, yet not in my own strength but God’s, for his empowering grace is poured out upon me.

11 So this is what we all have taught you, and whether it was through me or someone else, you have now believed the Gospel.

We are to teach reality, not opinions, theories, or religion.

Our Best Interest

Friday, January 27th, 2023

GOD’S Power in us is expressed as Love in action through us.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Malachi chapter 3:

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.”

When FATHER said, “Bring all the tithes”, HE did not “Would you please…”.  HE did not beg us or plead with us.  After all, HE does not need our resources.  HE is creative and can manifest anything HE needs. 

This passage is really all about how much we Love and trust HIM.  It establishes true ownership in the most fundamental sense.  FATHER has given us the ability to choose thus HE leaves the decision to us.  Our decision reflects our current state of maturity and serves as a barometer of where we truly stand with HIM.

HE did the same thing in Deuteronomy chapter 28:

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

2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God

Everybody wants the blessings mentioned in verses 3 through 14.  However, FATHER further instructs us:

15   “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:

Has FATHER changed in HIS Divine Intent?  No.  Actually, HE had Jesus further disclose details of obedience when Jesus spoke in John chapter 15:

9  “As the Father Loved Me, I also have Loved you; abide in My Love.

10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.

11 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.

12 This is My commandment, that you Love one another as I have Loved you.

13 Greater Love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My Name He may give you.

17 These things I command you, that you Love one another.

Did Jesus get these Words from Our Heavenly Father?  Totally.  FATHER only has our best interest at heart in all matters.

Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 6:

38   “Give generously and generous gifts will be given back to you, shaken down to make room for more. Abundant gifts will pour out upon you with such an overflowing measure that it will run over the top! Your measurement of generosity becomes the measurement of your return.”

My wife and I have lived by these Words and can testify to their validity.  Generosity brings forth favor, often from unexpected sources.

Become Active

Thursday, January 26th, 2023

Our best is GOD’S best on earth.  Love acts!

In Galatians chapter 1 is where Paul received his revelation:

11  Beloved ones, let me say emphatically that the Gospel entrusted to me was not given to me by any man.

12 No one taught me this revelation, for it was given to me directly by the unveiling of Jesus the Anointed One.

15 But then God called me by His grace; and in Love, He chose me from my birth to be His.

16 God’s grace unveiled his Son in me so that I would proclaim Him to the non-Jewish people of the world. After I had this encounter I kept it a secret for some time, sharing it with no one.

17 And I chose not to run to Jerusalem to try to impress those who had become apostles before me. Instead, I went away into the Arabian Desert for a season until I returned to Damascus, where I had first encountered Jesus.

The Gospel is a Gospel of redemption.

The Gospel is committed to our trust.

The Gospel of redemption is for all people, the whole world.

Paul had a revelation for action.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Corinthians chapter 5:

19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And He gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.

In other words, it was through the Anointed One that God was shepherding the world, not even keeping records of their transgressions, and He has entrusted to us the ministry of opening the door of reconciliation to God.

20 We are ambassadors of the Anointed One who carry the message of Christ to the world, as though God were tenderly pleading with them directly through our lips. So we tenderly plead with you on Christ’s behalf, “Turn back to God and be reconciled to Him.”

Paul also wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 1:

9 God knows how often I pray for you. Day and night I bring you and your needs in prayer to God, whom I serve with all my heart by spreading the Good News about His Son.

And in 1st Timothy chapter 1:

11 that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.

The world is out there and they need us.  There is an urgency for action.

And the Beloved disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st John chapter 2:

2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

GOD’S Word is provable. GOD’S Love is irresistible, and we are to share HIS Love.  We are to fulfill the Will of GOD.  We need to make Christianity practical to the world and not use church speak that they don’t understand.

What is spiritual maturity?  It is the state of being fully developed where we not only hear Our Heavenly Father, but we respond to His Word and take the appropriate action.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 6:

38 For I have come down from Heaven, not to do My own Will, but the Will of Him Who sent Me.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 15:

9   “I Love each of you with the same Love that the Father Loves me. You must continually let My Love nourish your hearts.

10 If you keep My commands, you will live in My Love, just as I have kept My Father’s commands, for I continually live nourished and empowered by His Love. 11 My purpose for telling you these things is so that the joy that I experience will fill your hearts with overflowing gladness!

12 “So this is My command: Love each other deeply, as much as I have Loved you. 13 For the greatest Love of all is a Love that sacrifices all. And this great Love is demonstrated when a person sacrifices his life for his friends.

14 “You show that you are My intimate friends when you obey all that I command you.

15 I have never called you ‘servants,’ because a master doesn’t confide in his servants, and servants don’t always understand what the master is doing. But I call you My most intimate friends, for I reveal to you everything that I’ve heard from My Father.

16 You didn’t choose me, but I’ve chosen and commissioned you to go into the world to bear fruit. And your fruit will last, because whatever you ask of My Father, for My sake, He will give it to you!

17 So this is My parting command: Love one another deeply!”

Jesus spoke in Acts chapter 1:

8 But I promise you this-the Holy Spirit will come upon you and you will be filled with power. And you will be My messengers to Jerusalem, throughout Judea, the distant provinces-even to the remotest places on earth!”

It is good to study to show yourself approved, but at some point, we are to become active in doing what we have been instructed to do.

It’s This Simple

Wednesday, January 25th, 2023

Your life will count when you stick to the simplicity of The Gospel when ministering to the lost.

What is the purpose of maturing the Sons and Daughters of GOD if it isn’t fulfilling the mandate given to us by Jesus Himself?

Jesus spoke only The Words He heard from FATHER which tells us every Word reflects FATHER’S Divine Intent for the world.  It is very simple, hear The Word and do It!

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

12   For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and Godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you.

13 For we are not writing any other things to you than what you read or understand. Now I trust you will understand, even to the end

Most of the lost have not heard the Good News in Its simplicity nor are they familiar with Scripture verses.  However, they do understand physical results such as miracles and related testimonies.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Corinthians chapter 11:

3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Keep it simple.  Every Word from Above has the power within Itself to make Itself come to pass.  You must speak a language that the lost understand, not “spiritual speak”.

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 2:

46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,

When the early church initially added new converts, the New Testament had not been written.  They heard Peter, Paul, and others testify of Jesus with signs and wonders following.  When the Supernatural power of GOD shows up with infallible proofs, there is no question of who is telling the Truth.

We are HIS Voice to the lost for the Gospel is committed to us.  The lost will not hear the Gospel from an angel.  The Gospel has power when It is spoken through a believer.

Forty days of fasting will not save the lost.  Church rituals and formulas will not change the hearts of the lost.  Will repetitive prayers change the hearts of the lost?  The center of our sharing should be The Gospel.  It works when you share Good News so why focus on the bad news being spewed out by the talking heads?

Jesus came to the earth to show us what to do and how to do it.

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 1:

2  until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles (and us) whom He had chosen,

3 to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

Jesus came to show us GOD and He came to show us… US!  We are made in His Image in all areas and are able to walk in the same manner once restored and filled with The Holy Spirit.  It is not sacrilegious to view yourself in the same manner because Jesus said we were to do greater miracles than He did during His earthly ministry.

You don’t need or seek out some evangelist’s anointing, the anointing of The Holy Spirit is more than enough.  Don’t denigrate the Blood of Jesus by thinking some person’s anointing is needed by you.  You don’t need second-hand anointing.  Be what you believe!

Stick to the simplicity of the Message of Christ, believe and expect signs following as you minister to the lost.  FATHER has a passion to give life to the dying!  Let us have that same passion.

Christianity is GOD’S Love in action, it’s that simple!

Focus On The Unconverted

Tuesday, January 24th, 2023

We need to be concerned and have a heart for the unconverted.  Jesus instructed us to win souls to Christ and establish the Kingdom in them.

Jesus had a heart and focus for the unconverted.  Paul had a heart for the unconverted.  We should too.  We are to be known as soul-winners.

We need to become magnets for unconverted people who want to be saved.  They should see that we have something they don’t have.  As a result, we are to give them The Good News in a language they will understand.  Talk the language of the people.

The Gospel is simple and meant to be understood by all.  We are saved to become savers; we are healed to become healers: we are lifted up to become lifters; blessed to become blessers.

These writings are intended to mature us to where we can and will represent Jesus to all of mankind.  Are you happy?  You should be.  Do you encourage people?  You should.  People want to have a connection with GOD because we are all wired that way.  When they see us walking in a fulfilled state, they will be drawn to us.

We should not add to their problems, we are to be problem solvers.

You and I have the same anointing that Jesus had when He walked the earth.  Why else would He state 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!”

Do you really believe these Words?  I do and I am expecting to do greater miracles with the sole purpose of bring glory to FATHER.

You don’t have to pray for Jesus’ anointing, nor do you have to beg for it.  If you are following Him in faith, you’ve already got it!

We need to find ourselves in the Scriptures.  Many of the past writings were to show us who we are in Christ.  Ephesians chapter 1 provides us much of what has already been deposited in us.

Jesus spoke to Paul and is speaking to us in Acts chapter 26:

15   “I asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ “And the Lord replied, ‘I am Jesus, the One you are persecuting.

16 Get up and stand to your feet, for I have appeared to you to reveal your destiny and to commission you as My assistant. You will be a witness to what you have seen and to the things I will reveal whenever I appear to you.

17 I will rescue you from the persecution of your own people and from the hostility of the other nations that I will send you to.

18 And you will open their eyes to their true condition, so that they may turn from darkness to the Light and from the power of Satan to the power of God. By placing their faith in me they will receive the total forgiveness of sins and be made Holy, taking hold of the inheritance that I give to My children!’

These Words of Jesus apply to you and me.  We don’t need to seek some man’s anointing when we have the anointing of Jesus Who freely gave to all who truly believe in Him.  Has Jesus appeared to you in Scripture yet?  Has His Love embraced you yet?

We have been commissioned by Jesus to destroy the works of the devil… now is the time!

Paul responded to Jesus:

19  “So you see, King Agrippa, I have not been disobedient to what was revealed to me from Heaven.

20 For it was in Damascus that I first declared the Truth. And then I went to Jerusalem and throughout our nation, and even to other nations, telling people everywhere that they must repent and turn to God and demonstrate it with a changed life.

22-23   “But in spite of all this, I have experienced the supernatural help of God up to this very moment. So I’m standing here saying the same thing that I’ve shared with everyone, from the least to the greatest. For I teach nothing but what Moses and the prophets have said was destined to happen: that our Messiah had to suffer and die and be the first to rise from the dead, to release the bright light of Truth both to our people and to the non-Jewish nations.”

Start simple, focus on ministering to one soul.

Truth: Part 2

Monday, January 23rd, 2023

Once I know the Truth, the devil is no longer an issue unless I give him authority by my words, thoughts, and/or actions.

Knowledge of Truth is the only sure foundation for faith.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 1:

13 And because of Him (Jesus Christ), when you who are not Jews heard the revelation of Truth, you believed in the wonderful news of salvation. Now we have been stamped with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit.


18  I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of His calling-that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that He finds in us, His Holy ones!

The Holy Spirit is far superior to anything that the adversary attempts to derail us from who we are in Christ.  The Holy Spirit resides in us thus all Truth resides in us and is meant to lead us through all challenges we encounter.  The Voice of Truth in us must be given free reign as we are confronted with the deceptions by the adversary and his vessels.

False teachers will attempt to subvert us from the True Gospel, and they only want us to yield to their narrative which ultimately results in slavery and/or submission of some kind.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Galatians chapter 2:

5 to whom we did not yield submission even for an hour, that the Truth of the Gospel might continue with you.

Men fabricate lies and FATHER speaks pure Truth.  Lies are ultimately meant to kill, steal, and/or destroy but Truth promotes Life and peace.  This is why Truth is the first requirement of putting on the whole armor of God.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Thessalonians chapter 2:

13 This is why we continually thank God for your lives, because you received our message wholeheartedly. You embraced it not as the fabrication of men but as the Word of God. And the Word continues to be an energizing Force in you who believe.

The Word will energize you if you let It.  We must guard our hearts with Truth and protect it from false teachers who twist, redefine, deemphasize, or omit various aspects of FATHER’S Divine Intent in The Word.  Be not ignorant.

Paul warned us as he wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Timothy chapter 6:

3  But if anyone spreads false teaching that does not agree with the healthy instruction of our Lord Jesus, teaching others that Holy awe of God is not important, then they prove they know nothing at all! It’s obvious they don’t value or hold dear the healing Words of our Lord Jesus Christ.

4 They are covered with the clouds of conceit. They are loaded with controversy, and they love to argue their opinions and split hairs. The fruit of their ministry is contention, competition, and evil suspicions.

5 They add misery to many lives by corrupting their minds and cheating them of the Truth. They equate the worship of God with making great sums of money.

Peter also emphasized this as he wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Peter chapter 2:

1  In the past there arose false prophets among God’s people, just as there will continue to be false teachers who will secretly infiltrate in your midst to divide you, bringing with them their destructive heresies. They will even deny the Master, who paid the price for them, bringing swift destruction on themselves.

2 Many will follow immoral lifestyles. Because of these corrupt false teachers, the way of Truth will be slandered.

3 They are only out for themselves, ready to exploit you for their own gain through their cunning arguments. Their condemnation has been a long time coming. But their destruction does not slumber or sit idly by, for it is sure to come.

Truth protects us from the cunning devices of the adversary.  Since The Word contains The Truth, we must not be ignorant and allow ourselves to be deceived.  This is the reason The Holy Spirit has me include appropriate Scriptures to insure we understand what Truth is, and what It isn’t!  Truth will uncover lies every time.

Live by the Truth and your life will improve dramatically.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 6:

10  Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important Truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of His explosive power flowing in and through you. 11 Put on GOD’S complete set of armor provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser!

14  Put on Truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. Put on Holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart.

The devil uses many evil strategies that are all based on his one means of keeping us from our relationship with Our Heavenly Father, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit- deception.

The Beloved Disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 12:

9  So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

And Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Corinthians chapter 11:

3   But now I’m afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s clever lies, your thoughts may be corrupted and you may lose your single-hearted devotion and pure Love for Christ.  TPT

In other Words:

3  But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.  NKJV

The original sin was accomplished through the deception of Eve when she failed to see the Truth of FATHER’S Words.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Genesis chapter 3:

1  Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

The devil has only one weapon which is deception yet he has many strategies attached to it.  Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by the accuser’s deceptive practice of twisting Scripture to be used for his own self-serving reasons.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 16:

13  But when the Truth-giving Spirit comes, He will unveil the reality of every Truth within you. He won’t speak His own message, but only what He hears from the Father, and He will reveal prophetically to you what is to come.

In the end, the Truth will prevail, and you don’t want to be on the wrong side of the reality which comes to light.  This is why it is imperative to be led by The Holy Spirit in all matters.

Jesus also spoke in John chapter 14:

John 10:4 NKJV

And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.

6  Jesus explained, “I am the Way, I am the Truth, and I am the Life. No one comes next to the Father except through union with Me. To know Me is to know My Father too.

7 And from now on you will realize that you have seen Him and experienced Him.”

There is no other way to complete Truth than through Jesus Christ!  Further, Jesus sent The Holy Spirit to live within each of us to give us unfettered access to complete Truth from FATHER.  It is vital that you and I navigate through this world being led by Truth rather than being subjected to the evil strategies of the accuser.
