What did Noah see out the window?

Saturday, April 29th, 2023

What did Noah see out the window when the flood came?

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 24:

36  “Concerning that day and exact hour, no one knows when it will arrive, not even the angels of heaven—only the Father knows.

37 For it will be like it was in the days of Noah when the Son of Man appears.

38 Before the flood, people lived their lives eating, drinking, marrying, and having children.

39 They didn’t realize the end was near until Noah entered the ark, and then suddenly, the flood came and took them all away in judgment. It will happen the same way when the Son of Man appears.

40 At that time, two men will be working on the farm; one will be taken away in judgment, the other left.

41 Two women will be grinding grain; one will be taken away in judgment, the other left. 42 This is why you must stay alert: because no one knows the day your Lord will come.

43 “But realize this: If a homeowner had known what time of night the burglar would come to rob his house, he would have been alert and ready, and not let his house be robbed.

44 So always be ready, alert, and prepared, because at an hour when you’re not expecting him, the Son of Man will come.”

45 “What would qualify a servant to manage his master’s house? He would be a wise servant who is both faithful and dependable. The master would commission him to oversee others, for he would lead them well and give them food at the right time.

46 What joy and blessing will come to that faithful servant when the master comes home to find him serving with excellence!

47 I can promise you, the master will raise him up and put him in charge of all that he owns.

Serving with excellence is based on the gifts and calling each of us has been given!

48 “But the evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master delays his coming, and who knows when he will return?’ And because of the delay, the servant mistreats those in his master’s household. Instead of caring for the ones he was appointed to serve,

49 he abuses the other servants and begins to party with drunkards.

50 Let me tell you what will happen to him. His master will suddenly return unexpectedly, and he will remove the abusive, selfish servant from his position of trust. 51 And the master will cut him in two and assign him to the place of great sorrow and anguish along with all the other hypocrites.”

FATHER is not only the GOD of Love, HE is also the GOD of Justice.

There are Laws that govern how the power of GOD flows!

HE established HIS Laws in Scripture and we are to abide by those Laws for our benefit in all areas, including finances.

If you are in a crisis, you may need a miracle.  Otherwise, you should expect the supernatural as you adhere to FATHER’S Laws.  FATHER’S best is for us to learn HIS Ways and cooperate with HIM and the Laws HE established.  Our finances should be governed by HIS Laws rather than that of the world.

FATHER does not want us to live from miracle to miracle.  HE wants us to live in HIS blessings.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Deuteronomy chapter 31:

8  And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”

10 And Moses commanded them, saying: “At the end of every seven years, at the appointed time in the year of release, at the Feast of Tabernacles,

11 when all Israel comes to appear before the LORD your God in the place which He chooses, you shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing.

12 Gather the people together, men and women and little ones, and the stranger who is within your gates, that they may hear and that they may learn to fear the LORD your God and carefully observe all the words of this law,

13 and that their children, who have not known it, may hear and learn to fear the LORD your God as long as you live in the land which you cross the Jordan to possess.”

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Proverbs chapter 24:

21  My son, fear the LORD and the king; Do not associate with those given to change;

22 For their calamity will rise suddenly, And who knows the ruin those two can bring?

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Ecclesiastes chapter 12:

13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is the whole duty of man.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in 2nd Chronicles chapter 1:

11  Then God said to Solomon: “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, nor have you asked long life-but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king-

12 Wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like.”

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Joshua chapter 1:

8  This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

6  For the sense and reason of the flesh is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace.

Those who know the Scripture are without excuse.

2 Corinthians 7:1 TPT

Beloved ones, with promises like these, and because of our deepest respect and worship of God, we must remove everything from our lives that contaminates body and spirit, and continue to complete the development of Holiness within us.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Isaiah chapter 66:

1  This is what Yahweh says: “The Heavens are My Throne and the earth is My footstool. Where is the house you will build for Me? Where is the place where I will rest?

2 My Hand made these things so they all belong to Me,” declares Yahweh. “But there is one My Eyes are drawn to: the humble one, the tender one, the trembling one who lives in awe of all I say.

The Fear of THE LORD and our finances are tied together.  It is our choice to lay our finances before HIM so that HE can direct us in all our ways.

A Word

Thursday, April 27th, 2023

Don’t fear the future. Stop living in the past. Neither of these things must have lordship over your life. I am the God of timeless eternity, but I give you one day at a time. I release the time you need to heal, to laugh, to ponder, to work, to rest, to love. Today is My gift to you.

Let Me work out tomorrow’s details. All I ask is to be present in what’s before you today. If there are details to be ironed out, do it with Me, in My peace. Don’t become so focused on tomorrow that you miss the grace I’ve given for today. Today is My gift to you. Embrace it fully.

If today is meant to bring healing for the past, then you must submit to the healing that today has. Don’t live in yesterday’s trauma. Don’t yearn for yesterday’s blessing. Laugh for every reason you can find today. Dance like a child. Love more intensely. Forgive quickly and unreservedly. Time will continue passing, but if you’ll take it one day at a time, My grace will meet you.

The enemy wants to steal, kill, and destroy your finances!              

Our Lord God Almighty is a GOD of recompense.

Wisdom spoke in Proverbs chapter 16:

11 Honest weights and scales are the LORD’s; All the weights in the bag are His work.

In other Words:

The Lord expects you to be fair in every business deal, for he is the one who sets the standards for righteousness.

When I was young, I used to negotiate price, especially for cars.  When we bought our last house that FATHER picked out for us, I once again planned to negotiate for a better price.  FATHER spoke to me and said, “When you negotiate, you manipulate, and manipulation is not of ME.  Seek ME for the fair price and that is what you are to pay.”  I did just that and the owner accepted our offer.  Since then, I quit negotiating in any area.  I learned my lesson.

Moses recorded by THE SPIRIT in Deuteronomy chapter 25:

13  “You shall not have in your bag differing weights, a heavy and a light.

14 You shall not have in your house differing measures, a large and a small.

15 You shall have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure, that your days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD your God is giving you.

16 For all who do such things, all who behave unrighteously, are an abomination to the LORD your God.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Ecclesiastes chapter 5:

1  Walk prudently when you go to the house of God; and draw near to hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil.

2 Do not be rash with your mouth, And let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few.

FATHER does not need our opinion in our daily activities, rather we need HIS Wisdom, understanding, and knowledge to effectively our path.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Isaiah 66:

1  Thus says the LORD: “Heaven is My Throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the House that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest?

2 For all those things My Hand has made, And all those things exist,” Says the LORD. “But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My Word.

Being led by THE SPIRIT includes your finances, their distribution, and their source.  As we trust in THE LORD and respond to HIS Voice, we will no longer be victims of the adversary’s attempts to steal our resources.

The enemy wants to steal, kill, and destroy your finances!              

Our Lord God Almighty is a GOD of recompense.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 10:

10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 

In other Words:

A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect—life in its fullness until you overflow!

Paul spoke by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 5:

13  For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the Word of righteousness, for he is a babe.

14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Do you need middleman to manage and control your wealth?  How do you know if they are motivated by good or evil?  Do you think the evil are going to expose themselves?

Debt is designed to steal from you.  Financial leverage is designed to extract money from you because of greed.

Counterparty risk is the likelihood or probability that one of those involved in a transaction might default on its contractual obligation. Counterparty risk can exist in credit, investment, and trading transactions.

If a financial institution cannot repay you from your deposits, investments, stock proceeds, etc., then you have suffered from counterparty risks.

GOD’S money is gold and silver.  HE established its value for thousands of years.  Throughout history, men have replaced GOD’S money with fiat currency that totally relies on perception and acceptance.  The adversary will manipulate anything that he can with the purpose of stealing wealth.

FATHER is THE GOD of justice and HE will recompense those who seek HIS judgment in all matters.  HE will restore whatever the thief steals from the righteous ones.  However, you must righteously seek and expect recompense!

Is Jesus Your Lord?

Is Jesus really Lord of your life?                  

Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 9:

57  On their way, someone came up to Jesus and said, “I want to follow you wherever you go.”

58 Jesus replied, “Yes, but remember this: even animals in the field have holes in the ground to sleep in and birds have their nests, but the Son of Man has no place here to lay down his head.”

59 Jesus then turned to another and said, “Come be My disciple.” He replied, “Someday I will, Lord, but allow me first to fulfill my duty as a good son and wait until my father passes away.”

60 Jesus told him, “Don’t wait for your father’s burial. Let those who are already dead wait for death. But as for you, go and proclaim everywhere that God’s Kingdom has arrived.”

61 Still another said to Him, “Lord, I want to follow you too. But first let me go home and say good-bye to my entire family.”

62 Jesus responded, “Why do you keep looking backward to your past and have second thoughts about following Me? When you turn back you are useless to God’s Kingdom realm.”

What is your focus, the temporary or the permanent?

Our relationships with others are important but not at the expense of following Christ.  The trappings of this world are but temporary and should not take our focus away from being led by THE SPIRIT.  Our goal should be to minister Life to those who are willing to listen.  We are to take up our cross daily and deny ourselves of anything that would hinder us as being faithful Sons and Daughters.

Yes, there is a cost to following Jesus.  How much are willing to give up doing those things that may inconvenient or challenging?

Identity and Confidence

Sunday, April 23rd, 2023

Humility and confidence go together. Humility because if not for the mercy and kindness of our Heavenly Father, we could not stand before Him. Confidence because by accepting our position as Sons and Daughters of God, we honor Jesus’ sacrifice.

His radical Love defines us and gives us identity. It keeps us safe by reminding us how dependent upon Him we really are. Anything praiseworthy about our lives, character, or actions is a gift meant to bless others. Love encourages us to remain close to Him. To enjoy the freedom of friendship and the honor of kinship. We come boldly before Him, unafraid of being honest because we’ve grown to trust His Love. Fulfilling our purpose on earth begins by discovering our identity in the Lord. It opens the way for us to walk in continual communion with Christ and release His Will upon the earth.

Father, Your Love fills me with confidence. As I walk with You and learn Your Ways, I trust You more. I depend upon Your grace. Grace that empowers me to stand with confidence and make the world around me a better place. May my confidence in our relationship keep me humble—safe in the knowledge of Your Love. Amen!

FATHER’S money is gold and silver which cannot be altered or manipulated for unrighteous purposes!

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Haggai chapter 2:

1  In the seventh month, on the twenty-first of the month, the word of the LORD came by Haggai the prophet, saying:

This was on the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles. Afterward, FATHER was to fill the temple with HIS Glory.

2 “Speak now to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, and to the remnant of the people, saying:

3 ‘Who is left among you who saw this temple in its former glory? And how do you see it now? In comparison with it, is this not in your eyes as nothing?

4 Yet now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ says the LORD; ‘and be strong, Joshua, son of Jehozadak, the high priest; and be strong, all you people of the land,’ says the LORD, ‘and work; for I am with you,’ says the LORD of hosts.

5 ‘According to the Word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so My Spirit remains among you; do not fear!’

6 “For thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake Heaven and earth, the sea and dry land;

7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts.

8 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts.

9 ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the LORD of hosts.”

It is written by THE SPIRIT in 1st Kings chapter 7:

51 So all the work that King Solomon had done for the house of the LORD was finished; and Solomon brought in the things which his father David had dedicated: the silver and the gold and the furnishings. He put them in the treasuries of the house of the LORD.

Men have been trying to suppress the absolute Truth about gold and silver.  Why?  It is because they cannot manipulate their value.  However, every other medium of exchange can be manipulated and this is occurring as I write.  FATHER did not assign value to fiat currencies, paper notes, or anything else that man can alter.  Those mediums can now be altered by a keystroke on a computer. 

The world has been operating under a deception by the enemy for decades.  Only money backed by gold and silver represents absolute Truth.  How much longer until this deception and blindness are revealed to the population?  The timing is above my pay grade.  Anything man can create is subject to manipulation!

Governments want to move the citizens away from physical currency because they cannot control people’s spending and movements.  The population has been lulled into using only credit/debit cards to make purchases thus eliminating cash.  Those who have recognized the nefarious motives are promoting the use of cash every day.  My wife and I get cash each week to buy local goods and services.

Each of us must decide what monetary system we are going to support through our individual actions.  It is either freedom or enslavement.  Many central banks around the world have been accumulating gold in anticipation of the end of the American Empire.

If you want further perspective on this, watch the following interview:

FATHER’S Economy contains no deception or manipulation, only Truth!

Jesus Himself prophesied and warned us in Matthew chapter 24:

24  For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

25 See, I have told you beforehand.

If it were possible, even the elect would be deceived!

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Judges chapter 16:

Judges 16:

20  And Delilah (meaning: feeble and impoverished) said, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” So he awoke from his sleep, and said, “I will go out as before, at other times, and shake myself free!” But he did not know that the LORD had departed from him.

21 Then the Philistines took him and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza. They bound him with bronze fetters, and he became a grinder in the prison.

The masses are being lulled asleep by those in control of the world system.  Do you really think that technology is the answer to the world’s problems?  The only answer is found in the Spiritual!

Technology is dumbing down America.  Technology is tracking your every move.  Your smart TV is never really turned off.  Those who control the current banking system want to eliminate any means of doing business outside of their control.  Why?  They know that if they control the monetary system, they can control, manipulate, and enslave you.

Technology is not improving but is becoming sloppy because of the increased complexity of the features inside the code.  Increased complexity will ultimately result in collapse!

Impatience has moved the masses to want a quick solution to whatever they think they need to satisfy their flesh.  Developers don’t test their code sufficiently to ensure success.

Online banking is risky.  Using your smartphone to initiate financial transactions is risky.  You assume that all of those applications are safe and there won’t be any nefarious actions in the background you can’t see.

On April 14th, Google just admitted that there was a major security issue with its 3 billion users that needed a patch.  Is there any company that spends more money on programmers and code testing than Google?

Google released an emergency update to resolve an actively exploited flaw in its highly popular Chrome browser.

The bug, tracked as CVE-2023-2033, was deemed a “high” severity vulnerability by Google in an update posted on April 14. “Google is aware that an exploit for CVE-2023-2033 exists in the wild,” the search giant wrote in its advisory, meaning the bug is being actively targeted by malign actors.

If Google can’t guarantee safety in technology, then who can?

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin (BTC) is a cryptocurrency, a virtual currency designed to act as money and a form of payment outside the control of any one person, group, or entity, thus removing the need for third-party involvement in financial transactions. It is rewarded to blockchain miners for the work done to verify transactions and can be purchased on several exchanges.

Bitcoin was introduced to the public in 2009 by an anonymous developer or group of developers using the name Satoshi Nakamoto.

It has since become the most well-known cryptocurrency in the world. Its popularity has inspired the development of many other cryptocurrencies. These competitors either attempt to replace it as a payment system or are used as utility or security tokens in other blockchains and emerging financial technologies.

The Federal Reserve has been developing a digital currency called (CBDC).  Its intent is to ultimately control the monetary system with technology.  This would allow them to control what you buy and where you are able to buy, unlike physical cash, gold, and/or silver coins.

How could they get the populus to agree to such control?  A catastrophic event that results in mass fear promotes acceptance of any perceived solution.  Think about it!

Kingdom Economy: Part 7

FATHER’S Economy sets you free whereas man’s economy is designed to enslave you!

Which economy do you want to live in?

In Genesis chapter 14, after Abram gave the tithe, he was not tempted to take anything unholy which would have enslaved Abram to the world’s system.

The 10% tithe he offered made the 90% he retained Holy!  This is why Abraham gave Melchizedek the tithe before the Law was established.  Abraham had the revelation of the tithe given to him by FATHER.  Melchizedek represented the Law and righteousness before Salem became Jerusalem. 

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Malachi chapter 3:

10  Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My House, and put Me to the test now in this,” says the Lord of armies, “if I do not open for you the windows of Heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.

Where else does FATHER tell us to test HIM?

Moses recorded by THE SPIRIT in Exodus chapter 35:

4   Moses spoke to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, saying, “This is the thing which The Lord has commanded, saying,

5 ‘Take from among you a contribution to the Lord; whoever is of a willing heart is to bring it as the Lord’s contribution: gold, silver, and bronze,

6 and violet, purple, and scarlet material, fine linen, goats’ hair,

7 and rams’ skins dyed red, and fine leather, and acacia wood,

8 and oil for lighting, and spices for the anointing oil, and for the fragrant incense,

9 and onyx stones and setting stones for the ephod and for the breastpiece.

20 Then all the congregation of the sons of Israel departed from Moses’ presence. 21 And everyone whose heart stirred him and everyone whose spirit moved him came and brought the Lord’s contribution for the work of the tent of meeting and for all its service, and for the Holy garments.

FATHER made it plain that HE only wanted HIS Dwelling Place to be established by those with a willingness to give, not out of duty or guilt.  These were to be gifts given in an unconditional manner.

22 Then all whose hearts moved them, both men and women, came and brought brooches and earrings and signet rings and bracelets, all articles of gold; so did everyone who presented an offering of gold to the Lord.

23 Everyone who was in possession of violet, purple, or scarlet material or fine linen or goats’ hair, or rams’ skins dyed red or fine leather, brought them.

24 Everyone who could make a contribution of silver and bronze brought the Lord’s contribution; and everyone who was in possession of acacia wood for any work of the service brought it.

25 And all the skilled women spun with their hands, and brought what they had spun, in violet, purple, and scarlet material, and in fine linen.

26 And all the women whose heart stirred with a skill spun the goats’ hair.

27 The rulers, moreover, brought the onyx stones and the stones for setting for the ephod and for the breastpiece;

28 and the spice and the oil for the light and for the anointing oil, and for the fragrant incense.

29 The Israelites, all the men and women, whose heart moved them to bring material for all the work, which the Lord had commanded through Moses to be done, brought a voluntary offering to the Lord.

Moses recorded by THE SPIRIT in Genesis chapter 13:

2 Now Abram was very rich in livestock, silver, and gold.

And in Deuteronomy chapter 8:

11  “Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God by failing to keep His commandments, His ordinances, and His statutes which I am commanding you today;

12 otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, and you build good houses and live in them,

13 and when your herds and your flocks increase, and your silver and gold increase, and everything that you have increases,

14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery;

18 But you are to remember the Lord your God, for it is He Who is giving you power to make wealth, in order to confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

The Kingdom Economy is based on physical assets which can’t be manipulated by men.  True wealth comes to those who trust in FATHER and HIS Word.  Those who do will be willing givers to establish HIS Kingdom on earth even when the world is crumbling around them.  I can testify to this Truth.
