Do You Want A Miracle?

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023

Do something for someone who can’t pay you back. FATHER will then intervene for you. This is exactly why we help the kids in need who can’t repay us, knowing that our unconditional Love will be rewarded. The parable of the talents in Matthew chapter reveals this Truth:

Jesus spoke:

Matthew 25:14-21
“For the kingdom of Heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. [15] And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. [16] Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. [17] And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. [18] But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. [19] After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them. [20] “So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ [21] His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. [30] And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

It is all about the intent of your heart and your own resources. Jesus did not compare servant #1 to servant #2. Both received their rewards consistent with the resources they were given to steward.

What is the goal of The Holy Spirit in us?

The role of the Holy Spirit is to help believers reach the goal of inheriting the Kingdom.

First of all, the Holy Spirit is sent to seal us, then to sanctify us, and finally, to transform us into Christ’s image for our future inheritance. The Holy Spirit will provide the power that will enable us to become partakers, overcomers, and inheritors. He is the Source of it all.

Christ’s ministry, as our High Priest and Advocate, is to not lose anyone that the Father has given Him.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 10:

25  Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s Name, they bear witness of Me.

26 But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you.

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

28 And I give them Eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My Hand.

29 My Father, Who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s Hand.

30 I and My Father are one.”

Every circumstance in our lives is designed to make us more like Him, so we can learn to be partakers of His Life; overcome the world, the flesh, and the devil; bear “fruit”; and inherit His Kingdom.

The Holy Spirit is the Power Source that will enable us to produce this kind of fruit. In the Bible “fruit” is spoken of as actions, deeds, or “good works” that are accomplished by the Holy Spirit through us.

If we don’t learn sanctification here on earth, we will run the risk of jeopardizing our place and our position in the coming Kingdom. We will still be a part of the Rapture; we will still be a part of the Millennium; and we will still go to Heaven. But, if we don’t learn Holiness here, we will forfeit the possibility of future positions of honor of ruling and reigning with Jesus Christ! 

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

20   But in a Great House there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.

2] Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.

Let us choose to be useful to Our Master!

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Malachi chapter 3:

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. 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.

FATHER operates in both Love and justice.  HIS Wisdom is able to apply both appropriately and HE has provided us the basis of those two primary attributes in HIS Word.  There is no doubt that HE keeps a record of our fruitfulness.  Why?

There are benefits to being fruitful else there would be no recognition of it in The Word.  Do you want to rule and reign as a servant king with Jesus in the millennium?  He is the King of kings but will assign some to reign with Him.  Incorporated in FATHER’S Love is justice.  In Revelation 3:19 Jesus declared:  “As many as I Love, I rebuke and chasten.”  “To punish” means “to inflict harm”; whereas “to chasten” means “something that is done for our profit and for our benefit.”

The Beloved Disciple recorded by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 20:

6   Wonderfully blessed and Holy are those who share in the first resurrection! The second death holds no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of the Christ. And they will reign as kings with Him a thousand years!

It’s Never Too Late!

Monday, May 22nd, 2023

Thankfully, it’s never too late! If you are reading these posts now, then it’s not too late for a renewed commitment! It doesn’t matter how old you are, how badly you’ve blown it in the past; or what horrible things you’ve done; or how many times you have failed. That’s what 1 John 1:9 is all about: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” In other words, one choice and we can be back on the road (God’s Highway) again toward becoming an overcomer! I have learned myself to be quick to repent and move on!

Overcomers are not perfect. They fail just like the rest of us, but they keep on getting up, keep on repenting, and keep on being willing to surrender themselves to Christ and letting Him, Who is the only perfect One, work and produce “fruit” through them.

God promises us that if we are faithful over a few things here, then He will give us authority over many things there (Matthew 25:21).

That’s His promise! That’s our hope! And that’s the tree of Life!

Remember, it is not how you start the race, it is how you finish!

The goal of sanctification is to make us more like Christ.

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

8  You Love Him passionately although you have not seen Him, but through believing in Him you are saturated with an ecstatic joy, indescribably sublime and immersed in glory.

9 For you are reaping the harvest of your faith—the full salvation promised you—your souls’ victory!

Experiential sanctification (being open and cleansed) leads to partaking of Christ’s Life (actually living His Life—that beam of light); partaking of Christ’s Life leads to overcoming; and, overcoming leads to inheriting and co-reigning with Christ.

Paul expressed this Truth by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians 5:

25  And to the husbands, you are to demonstrate Love for your wives with the same tender devotion that Christ demonstrated to us, His bride. For He died for us, sacrificing Himself

26   to make us Holy and pure, cleansing us through the showering of the pure water of the Word of God.

27 All that he does in us is designed to make us a mature church for His pleasure, until we become a source of praise to Him—glorious and radiant, beautiful and Holy, without fault or flaw.

The relationship between Christ and us is intended to make us Holy, blameless, and glorious.  It is up to each of us to agree to such a relationship.

FATHER’S whole purpose in saving us (and the reason He has called us) is to place us back in the position for which we were originally created––to be “joint-heirs” with Christ ruling and reigning with Him over the earth. Since this was not fulfilled at the beginning of time because of Adam and Eve’s sin, God has determined to accomplish this purpose in the Millennium where man will finally occupy a regal position over a restored earth.

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 3:

20 And He will send you Jesus, the Messiah, the Appointed One.

21 For He must remain in Heaven until the restoration of all things has taken place, fulfilling everything that God said long ago through His Holy prophets.

22 For has not Moses told us: ‘The Lord your God will raise up a prophet from among you Who is like Me. Listen to Him and follow everything He tells you. 23 Every person who disobeys that prophet will be cut off and completely destroyed.’

24 “In fact, every prophet from the time of Samuel onward has prophesied of these very days!

25 And you are heirs of their prophecies and of the covenants God made with your fathers when he promised Abraham, ‘Your Descendant will bring blessing to all the people on the earth.’

God seeks our fellowship, our communion, and our Love. He actually wants to dwell among us. We were created for His pleasure.

The Beloved Disciple recorded in the Book of Revelation what was spoken in the Throne Room, chapter 4:

10   the twenty-four elders (representing the true church) fell facedown before the one seated on the throne and they worshiped the One who lives forever and ever. And they surrendered their crowns before the throne, singing:

11  “You are worthy, Our Lord and God, to receive glory, honor, and power, for You created all things, and for Your pleasure they were created and exist.”

The purpose of our salvation, therefore, is not only an earthly mission (to be conformed into the “image of Christ” for a witness to others), but also to regain the blessings of a future glorious Kingdom. Now is just the testing ground!

Faithful, obedient, and sanctified believers (the overcomers) who depend upon the Holy Spirit for everything will be qualified to inherit that Kingdom as Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 10:

23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.

Unfaithful, disobedient, and carnal believers (the overtaken) will enter that Kingdom, but forfeit the privilege of having levels of responsibility there.

Each of us must decide whether to be an overcomer or the overtaken!

What is God’s purpose in calling us?

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Psalm 8:

5  Yet what honor you have given to men, created only a little lower than Elohim, crowned with glory and magnificence.

6 You have delegated to them rulership over all you have made, with everything under their authority, placing earth itself under the feet of Your image-bearers.  TPT

OUR SPIRIT (which is the energy source or power source of our lives) is saved at our new birth (Ephesians 2:8–9). This is called “justification.” This means freedom from the penalty of sin. (Past)

OUR SOUL (which is made up of our own natural thoughts, emotions, and desires) is in the process of being saved through the “sanctification process” that we are all in now (James 1:21; 1 Peter 1:8–9). This means freedom from the power of sin. (Present)

OUR BODIES will be saved in the future at the resurrection, which is called “glorification.” This means freedom from the presence of sin. (Future)

In other words, “salvation” in the broad sense—spirit, soul and body—is a lifelong process.

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

16  Let joy be your continual feast.

17 Make your life a prayer.

18 And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.

19 Never restrain or put out the fire of the Holy Spirit.

20 And don’t be one who scorns (despise) 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.

The actual saving of our soul is dependent upon our constant choice to “put off” our sin and self and “put on” Christ.

Also, Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 2:

12  My Beloved ones, just like you’ve always listened to everything I’ve taught you in the past, I’m asking you now to keep following my instructions as though I were right there with you. Now you must continue to make this new life fully manifested as you live in the Holy Awe of God—which brings you trembling into His Presence.

13 God will continually revitalize you, implanting within you the passion to do what pleases Him.

Our soulish man represents our own natural thoughts, emotions, and desires that are usually opposite to God’s will. Transforming these to Godly thoughts, emotions, and desires is what the sanctification process is all about.

Our body, which will be redeemed at the Rapture. This is called “glorification.”

Justification means a new spirit; sanctification means a transformed soul; and, glorification means a new body.

Sanctification (learning to actually live and partake of Christ’s Life) is what will make us those faithful and obedient overcomers who will rule and reign there with Christ.  Christ is the One who will accomplish this transformation in our lives by the power of His Holy Spirit. But we are the ones who must choose to let Him do so moment-by-moment.

The word sanctification simply means “separated unto God.” It means to become clean, Holy, and righteous in all we think, say, and do.

Positional” sanctification happens when we first accept Christ (Hebrews 10:10); whereas “experiential” sanctification happens when we choose, moment by moment, to be cleansed by the Holy Spirit. Sanctification is simply the process by which God conforms us back into His image, which was lost when Adam and Eve sinned. It’s the means God uses to make us partakers of His Life so that we can become those overcomers who inherit the Millennial Kingdom. This will depend upon the willingness of the believer to die to self and to be alive unto God.  Our writings focus on this aspect of the process!

What is God’s purpose in calling us?

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Psalm 8:

5  Yet what honor you have given to men, created only a little lower than Elohim, crowned with glory and magnificence.

6 You have delegated to them rulership over all you have made, with everything under their authority, placing earth itself under the feet of Your image-bearers.  TPT

I strongly recommend you meditate on verse 6.  It holds the key to the overall calling specifically to the overcomers  We are here to be trained as companions of Christ to rule and reign with Him in the future and to be given the authority and power to overcome the enemy in the present.

The word salvation means “to liberate, to set free or to loose.” It literally means to deliver from bonds (chains or shackles) by a payment or a ransom. (A “ransom” is something that is given in exchange for a life.) Matthew 20:28 tells us that Christ paid that ransom for us.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 20:

24  The other ten disciples were listening to all of this, and a jealous anger arose among them against the two brothers.

25 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, called them to his side and said, “Kings and those with great authority in this world rule oppressively over their subjects, like tyrants.

26 But this is not your calling. You will lead by a completely different model. The greatest one among you will live as the one who is called to serve others,

27 because the greatest honor and authority is reserved for the one with the heart of a servant.

28 For even the Son of Man did not come expecting to be served but to serve and give His Life in exchange for the salvation of many.

By accepting what Christ has done for us on the Cross, five things occur:

1) we are set free from our bonds of sin and reconciled to Him,

2) we are delivered from the penalty of death,

3) we are guaranteed an entrance to the Millennial Kingdom (and to Heaven),

4) we are given the gift of a brand-new spirit (which is like a “down payment,” a pledge or a seal that assures us His promises are true) (Ephesians 1:13–14), and finally,

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 1:

13  And because of Him, 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.

14 He is given to us like an engagement ring, as the first installment of what’s coming! He is our hope-promise of a future inheritance which seals us until we have all of redemption’s promises and experience complete freedom—all for the Supreme Glory and Honor of God!

5) we are given His eternal Life (His Love, Wisdom and power) in our hearts

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in:

Colossians 1:27

Living within you is the Christ Who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a Heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for His people, and God wants everyone to know it!

And in Romans 5:5

And this hope is not a disappointing fantasy, because we can now experience the endless Love of God cascading into our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who lives in us!

When we first come to Christ and are born again, we are declared righteous and holy just like Romans 10:9 tells us. This is called justification, which is a judicial term meaning “to be declared not guilty before God.” The word justification (Strong’s #1344, dikaioo) means “to be acquitted, to render just, innocent or righteous” (2 Corinthians 5:21). Christ has already paid the penalty for us and there is nothing more we can do to add to it (Romans 3:24). It’s a free gift! (Titus 3:5). The price has already been paid. God uses the instrument of grace to accomplish this justification.

Being justified also means that we are guaranteed an entrance to the Kingdom of Heaven on the basis of what Christ has already done. He is the righteous and Holy One, and He has imputed that righteousness  and that Holiness to us. The down payment, or the pledge or seal of this future redemption is the gift of His Spirit indwelling our own spirit (Ephesians 1:13). In other words, at our new birth, our spirit is saved.

This is the first step of our calling.

Why Are We Here?

Friday, May 19th, 2023

Why are we here?

In other words, what is God’s purpose in calling us?

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Genesis chapter 1:

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth… And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

This passage tells us that man was originally called into existence to reign over the whole earth with the King of kings.

Man was created in the image of God so that one day he could become a “servant-king” and rule the world alongside the true king, the King of kings.  There was just one problem—Lucifer. Ezekiel 28 explains:

13  You lived in Eden, in the very garden of God. Every precious jewel formed your mantle. You were dressed in splendor with diamonds, carnelian, topaz, chrysolite, beryl, onyx, sapphire, turquoise, and emeralds; each gem engraved in settings of gold. I, Yahweh, made them for you on the day I created you.

14 I placed you with an anointed guardian cherub. You were on the Holy mountain of God where you walked among the fiery stones.

15 Your ways were blameless from the day I created you, until wickedness first appeared in you.

16 Your vast wealth filled you with violence and sin. So, I have cast you down in disgrace from the mountain of God. I banished you, O guardian cherub, from among the stones of fire.

17 Your heart became swollen with pride because of your beauty; your thirst for glory corrupted your wisdom. So, I hurled you down to the earth, and displayed you as a warning to other kings.

18 So great was your sin—the injustice of your buying and selling. You defiled your sanctuaries. So, I set a fire inside of you, and it consumed you entirely! I reduced you to ashes on the ground before the eyes of all who saw you.

19 All who once knew you are stunned at your fate. You have come to a terrible, dreadful end, and will be no more!

We must guard ourselves against walking in pride, one notable attribute of the adversary.  He attempted to exalt himself above FATHER as though he was fully independent.  He questioned FATHER’S specific Word in the garden which led to the fall of man.

Further, he has promoted injustice in the financial/economic system of the world.  This has served to enslave men by keeping them in a system designed to promote scarcity.  It is all about deception and enslavement.  You and I are meant to operate outside his system and rely on FATHER’S plan of blessing and seedtime and harvest of righteous seed.

Because of Adam’s sin, all mankind has inherited those same three consequences: 1) We are all born naturally separated from God;

2) God’s future plans for us to rule and reign alongside of Him have been forfeited; and

3) We have the same mortal enemy as Adam—satan.

These consequences have been passed down through every generation. The Epistle of Romans tells us that every person since Adam is born with a sin nature, not a spiritual nature, and thus has automatically “fallen short of the glory of God”

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 3:

21  But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,

22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference;

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

In other words, without Christ’s intervention, all of us are born guilty of sin, the penalty of which is death (eternal separation from God). Consequently, not only was man’s fellowship with God broken because of Adam’s sin, we also have forfeited our future rulership in the coming Kingdom.

Each of us has a unique, assigned purpose and it could only be achieved through Christ’s intervention.  Once that occurs, we can identify and walk in our calling.  If we seek to walk in Holiness, that calling will be fulfilled.

Without Christ, you cannot answer the first question: Why am I here?

There is more!

The Present and Future: Part 1

Deceit at the highest levels of governments is being revealed.

Deceit is the action or practice of deceiving someone by concealing or misrepresenting the truth.  Deception or falsehood is an act or statement that misleads, hides the truth, or promotes a belief, concept, or idea that is not true. It is often done for personal gain or advantage. Deception can involve dissimulation, propaganda and sleight of hand as well as distraction, camouflage, or concealment.  Does this sound familiar?  Are the various media outlets promoting deception?  Are the pharma companies doing the same?

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2:

3  Let no one in any way deceive or entrap you, for that day will not come unless the apostasy comes first [that is, the great rebellion, the abandonment of the faith by professed Christians], and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction [the Antichrist, the one who is destined to be destroyed],

The Book of Revelation is:

The Consummation of all things

The only place in Scripture where a special blessing is promised.

404 verses containing over 800 allusions from the Old Testament!

The Beloved disciple records what Jesus told him to write in Revelation beginning in chapter 1:

3 Blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired) is he who reads and those who hear the Words of the prophecy, and who keep the things which are written in it [heeding them and taking them to heart]; for the time [of fulfillment] is near.  AMP

3   Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the Words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.  KJV

3   A joyous blessing rests upon the one who reads this message and upon those who hear and embrace the Words of this prophecy, for the appointed time is in your hands.  TPT

It is important to note that we were placed on this earth in specific countries and at this time for FATHER’S Divine Intent to be accomplished

The following videos deal with some aspects of end-time prophecy:

Ye call Me…

Wednesday, May 17th, 2023

Inscription Inside the Lubeck Cathedral in Germany

Ye call Me Master and obey Me not,
Ye call Me Light and see Me not,
Ye call Me Way and walk not,
Ye call Me Life and desire Me not,
Ye call Me wise and follow Me not,
Ye call Me fair and love Me not,
Ye call Me rich and ask Me not,
Ye call Me eternal and seek Me not,
Ye call Me gracious and trust Me not,
Ye call Me noble and serve Me not,
Ye call Me mighty and honor Me not,
Ye call Me just and fear Me not,
If I condemn you, blame Me not.


Pride In Me?

Wednesday, May 17th, 2023

Is there pride to be found in me?

James wrote by The Holy Spirit in his Epistle, chapter 4:

And if you ask, you won’t receive it for you’re asking with corrupt motives, seeking only to fulfill your own selfish desires.

4 You have become spiritual adulterers who are having an affair, an unholy relationship with the world. Don’t you know that flirting with the world’s values places you at odds with God? Whoever chooses to be the world’s friend makes himself God’s enemy!

5 Does the Scripture mean nothing to you that says, “The Spirit that God breathed into our hearts is a jealous Lover Who intensely desires to have more and more of us”?

Anyone who seeks to exalt himself in comparison to others moves toward pride and it is very insidious by nature.  Its roots can and will run deep which makes it more difficult to ultimately remove.  I can personally attest to that!  When we become performance-oriented, pride will dictate our actions rather than being led by The Holy Spirit.  Sports and scholastic achievements promote pride at an early age.  Adults become rabid fans and can become violent.  Simply go to a child’s soccer game and observe!

6 But He continues to pour out more and more grace upon us. For it says,

God resists you when you are proud but continually pours out grace when you are humble.

7 So then, surrender to God. Stand up to the devil and resist him and he will flee in agony.

8 Move your heart closer and closer to God, and He will come even closer to you. But make sure you cleanse your life, you sinners, and keep your heart pure and stop doubting.

9 Feel the pain of your sin, be sorrowful and weep! Let your joking around be turned into mourning and your joy into deep humiliation.

10 Be willing to be made low before the Lord and he will exalt you!

Wisdom recorded in Ecclesiastes 4:

4  I have seen that every [effort in] labor and every skill in work comes from man’s rivalry with his neighbor. This too is vanity (futility, false pride) and chasing after the wind.

“Competitive sports” creates pride which ultimately leads to idol worship.  The adversary has infiltrated the entertainment media to the point where you can hardly go to a restaurant where there are no TV’s streaming multiple sports.  That environment along with cell phones reduces fellowship with the person across from you.  That is the ploy!

It is recorded by THE SPIRIT in Job chapter 33:

14   For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it.

15 He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds.

16 He whispers in their ears and terrifies them with warnings.

17 He makes them turn from doing wrong; He keeps them from pride.

18 He protects them from the grave, from crossing over the river of death.

19 “Or God disciplines people with pain on their sickbeds, with ceaseless aching in their bones.

20 They lose their appetite for even the most delicious food.

21 Their flesh wastes away, and their bones stick out.

22 They are at death’s door; the angels of death wait for them.

23 “But if an angel from Heaven appears- a special messenger to intercede for a person and declare that he is upright-

24 he will be gracious and say, ‘Rescue him from the grave, for I have found a ransom for his life.’

25 Then his body will become as healthy as a child’s, firm and youthful again.

26 When he prays to God, he will be accepted. And God will receive him with joy and restore him to good standing.

27 He will declare to his friends, ‘I sinned and twisted the truth, but it was not worth it.

28 God rescued me from the grave, and now my life is filled with light.’

29 “Yes, God does these things again and again for people.

30 He rescues them from the grave so they may enjoy the light of life.

The question each of us must answer:  “Am I focusing on the short-term, worldly things or the long-term Eternal life and Light?”

FATHER instructed me to cleanse my home of all past achievements for they only served to promote soulish pride.  I did not delay because I do not want there to be any resistance to being led by THE SPIRIT.
