HE Is Willing!

October 20th, 2020

FATHER spoke to the children of Israel in Exodus chapter 15:

25 So he (Moses) cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet.

There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them,

26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put (permit) none of the diseases on you which I have brought (allowed) on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”

The Spirit and Word are both mentioned in the above passage.  Heeding the Voice of THE LORD is critical thus we must place this aspect at the forefront of our priorities.

How can I do what is right in HIS Sight if I don’t heed HIS instruction?  I look over my life and see the times I failed to get HIS counsel before making a decision for I relied on my “mental prowess” instead.  What a mistake!

Doing what is right in HIS Sight means that HE is watching us.  FATHER is not surprised by our spiritual state whether good or bad.  HE desires all HIS Sons and Daughters to embrace what is right in HIS Sight and the inhabitants of Heaven are cheering us on when we promote life.

In John chapter 15, Jesus spoke:

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.

Jesus’ ministry focused on giving, our ministry should have the same focus.  As I give, good seed is planted and ultimately produces good fruit.  As I plant daily, I am preparing for a continuous harvest.  That harvest will sustain me well into the future.

In Psalm 105, it is written by The Holy Spirit for our instruction:

37 At last, God freed all the Hebrews from their slavery

and sent them away laden with the silver and gold of Egypt.

And not even one was feeble on their way out!

38 Egypt was relieved at their exodus, ready to see them go,

for the terror of the Lord of the Hebrews had fallen upon them!

39 God spread out a cloud as shade as they moved ahead

and a cloud of fire to light up their night.

40 Moses prayed and God brought them quail to eat.

He satisfied them with heaven’s bread falling from the sky.

41 He broke open the boulder

and the waters poured out like a river in the desert.

42 For God could never forget

his holy promise to his servant Abraham.

43 So God brought out his chosen ones with singing;

with a joyful shout they were set free!

44 He gave them lands and nations, just like he promised.

Fruitful lands of crops they had never planted were now theirs.

45 All this was done for them so that they would be faithful

to keep the ways of God, obeying his laws and following his truths.

Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

What did the FATHER of Love do?  HE:

  • Freed them from slavery
  • Sent them “heavy laden” with gold and silver
  • No one had sickness or disease
  • Kept them cool in the day with shade
  • Kept them warm at night and gave them light at night
  • Gave them quail to eat
  • Gave them bread to eat
  • Gave them water to drink
  • Gave them fruitful land of crops they did not plant

Does HE Love you and me any less?  Aren’t we meant to be “more” than conquerors?  Let us bring the intent and reality of Heaven to earth and no longer limit ourselves from HIS abundant Love!  HE is willing, are we?

The Law Of The Spirit Of Life

October 19th, 2020

Men accommodate their unbelief by making up their own doctrine.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

8 So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One. 2 For the “law” of the Spirit of life flowing through the anointing of Jesus has liberated us from the “law” of sin and death. 3 For God achieved what the law was unable to accomplish, because the law was limited by the weakness of human nature.

Do I want to be liberated from the law of sin and death?  If so, why would I spend needless hours focusing on areas of study which have very little to do with promoting the law of the Spirit of life?  Why wouldn’t I make a priority of praying in THE SPIRIT every single day?  I believe the only reason is due to lack of revelation.

When we focus on “the world”, we promote unbelief in our minds.  The world is constantly in conflict with the Absolute Truth.  We need to focus on the Spirit of Truth!

Many people will study The Word but fail to include The Holy Spirit in their study.  In John chapter 6, Jesus spoke:

63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him. 65 And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.”

The Holy Spirit is life-giving and we should be pursuing the fullness of life as the highest priority of our existence.  No one knows us better than The Holy Spirit thus He will direct us in all our daily affairs and navigate us through the difficulties of this broken world.

In 2 Corinthians chapter 3, Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit:

4 And we have such trust through Christ toward God. 5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, 6 who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

The Word without The Spirit is of none effect so when I read the Old Testament, I should be led by The Spirit in order to receive the revelation of what FATHER wants me to see and understand.  I must not read and study simply to gain knowledge, I need revelation which promotes life.

In John chapter 8, Jesus spoke to the Pharisees:

13 The Pharisees therefore said to Him, “You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness is not true.”

14 Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from and where I am going. 15 You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one. 16 And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me. 17 It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true. 18 I am One who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me.”

19 Then they said to Him, “Where is Your Father?”

Jesus answered, “You know neither Me nor My Father. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also.”

20 These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one laid hands on Him, for His hour had not yet come.

Notice that Jesus referred to the Old Covenant as “your law”.  These experts in The Law had no revelation of who Jesus was for The Holy Spirit was not providing the understanding needed.  Without The Spirit, Jesus referred to the Old Testament and related writings and traditions as “your law”.

This is simply another example of how critical it is to be fully led by The Holy Spirit and not allow ourselves to be diverted from The Spirit of Life.

The Two Mind-Sets

October 18th, 2020

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

5 Those who are motivated by the flesh only pursue what benefits themselves. But those who live by the impulses of the Holy Spirit are motivated to pursue Spiritual realities. 6 For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace.

7 In fact, the mind-set focused on the flesh fights GOD’S plan and refuses to submit to HIS direction, because it cannot! 8 For no matter how hard they try, GOD finds no pleasure with those who are controlled by the flesh. 9 But when the Spirit of Christ empowers your life, you are not dominated by the flesh but by the Spirit. And if you are not joined to the Spirit of the Anointed One, you are not of Him.

Each of us must assess our own mind-set in light of what The Holy Spirit has expressed in the above passage.  Are you willing to fully submit to the mind-set of The Spirit and respond accordingly?

When a thought is given to you in your mind by The Holy Spirit, what do you do with it?  Do you ponder it then ultimately disregard it?  If so, your mind-set is not controlled by The Spirit.  As a result, you are strengthening the mind-set of the flesh.

What should I do?  Take action when The Holy Spirit instructs you to do or say something.  Once the directive is expressed on earth, you bring forth the Kingdom of GOD in a greater manner thus impacting your surroundings.  Am I 100% responsive yet?  No not yet, but I am pursuing being “fully led” by The Holy Spirit in all areas.  I trust you are in the same pursuit else you would not be led to read these blogs.

Am I going through trials and tests?  Absolutely, but I expect a reward at the end of each test for FATHER rewards those who diligently seek HIM.  I refuse to be moved by the trials and tests knowing that FATHER will see me through them all.

If you have a bad thought and don’t act it out or say anything, it has no power and will dissipate.  The demons will see that their attempt to influence you to the mind-set of the flesh is no longer working.  At some point, those attempts will cease for they will look for a weaker vessel to control.

Once you submit act or speak according to the mind-set of the flesh, you are held accountable for it.  James wrote by The Holy Spirit in James chapter 4:

7 So then, surrender to GOD. Stand up to the devil and resist him and he will turn and run away from you. 8 Move your heart closer and closer to GOD, and HE will come even closer to you.

We have a responsibility to take on the mind-set of The Spirit.  No one else can do it for you or me.  I can encourage you but I can’t compel you to change. 

We are no longer victims for victims are created in the mind-set of the flesh.  When we were young and immature, we were victimized by those who were led by the devil and his demons to keep us in a cycle of curses, often generational in nature.  It is up to me to break the curse of a generational nature by taking on the mind-set of The Spirit.

Not every thought or feeling is “you”.  Many thoughts or feelings have come from the external spiritual influence of demons.  Jesus Himself revealed this in Matthew chapter 16:

21 From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.

22 Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!”

23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

Peter’s mind-set was not “mindful of the things of God” and Jesus revealed that reality to him in no uncertain terms.  Jesus dealt directly with the influencer- satan.  We must not disregard the source of many unrighteous thoughts meant to keep us in the mind-set of the flesh.

The spirit of deception is being revealed and we must not allow ourselves to disregards these Truths.  Do not allow unrighteous thoughts to manifest.  If I speak the mind-set of The Spirit, fruitfulness will abound in my life.  Doubt not!

We are meant to frame our world just as Jesus did and it is done by our words and actions given through the mind-set of The Spirit.

How We Distribute To The Impoverished Kids

October 17th, 2020

I would like to share the details of how we distribute to the impoverished kids but first let us lay some groundwork about Bethany where these kids live (and Jesus kept returning to in His ministry which included “lodging” there; Lazarus was from Bethany).

Jesus spoke to the multitudes in Matthew chapter 5:

1 And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. 2 Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:

​3 ​​“Blessed are the poor in spirit,

​​For theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

First of all, my friend Alan shared some details of why FATHER most likely moved my wife and me to Bethany:

Rarely is this ‘natural sense realm input’ totally reliable, and we usually interpret definitions in a negative mentality.  A good example is ‘beyt ah-niy’, “…house of the poor”.  You probably recognize this word as Bethany.  You may even know someone that resides there.  ‘beyt ah-niy’ is often referred to as “…the house of the poor”, because ‘ah-niy’ is often associated with, or translated directly, as ‘poor’. 

We like to quote the following: “Blessed are the ‘poor’ in spirit”.  But, why are they ‘poor’ in spirit?  Is it because they have no ‘spirit presence’ with which to identify, or turn to?  Not at all, I say.  They are called ‘poor’ because the ‘afflictions’ (ah-nuh) of life have kept them from being arrogant, and filled with soulish pride.  The ‘poor’ (ah-niy) in spirit are those that are not filled with soulish pride, and carnal arrogance. 

‘ah-niy’ is also translated several times as ‘afflictions’;  Gen. 16:11, Psalm 22:24 and Isaiah 48:10 are some good examples of expressing ‘ah-niy and ‘ah-nah’ as ‘afflictions’.  Gen. 15:13 is also a valid expression.   Numbers 12:3:  ‘meek’ is from the Hebrew ‘ah-nav’ (wn[), one whose ‘afflictions’ or ‘answers’ from life has kept them from being inflated with pride or arrogance.  Psalm 147:7 translates ‘ah-nav’ as “Sing”, as a form of an answer to Him.

I realize this is a very broad and ‘generic’ overview, but I hope this will give you a feel for what you are seeking.  Sometimes the answer we seek must first be recognized in the ‘afflictions’ and ‘poor’ experiences of our existence, to propel us further to find Our Father.  When the ‘afflictions’ of this life no longer dictate who we are, we are getting much closer to the character and nature of our Elder Brother.  You may have been living in ‘Bethany’ for more reasons than were readily recognized.

In this sense, “humble in spirit,” or, “poor in spirit,” which means to be humble and totally dependent upon God for everything. It is synonymous with “pious” or “saintly,” not just in the sense of those who possess nothing. It could be translated “Delighted are those who have surrendered completely to God and trust only in HIM.”

With this as a background, Bethany Public Schools covers one square mile within the City of Bethany.  Another school system much larger surrounds this small area.  The superintendent and I are friends and I approached him concerning our assistance.  He fully embraced our support as well as his three principals who are all believers. 

We met and established that we wanted to distributed “assistance” through “gift” cards from the local supermarket chain (the owner and I went to school together and he was excited about preparing cards for us) and Walmart for essentials.  In addition, they set up an internal account specific for our assistance to draw from when they needed supplies, shoes, etc. via the Internet.

The counselors and teachers were notified of this source of assistance so they could provide input to the principals for approval.  We believe that only true impoverished families are receiving our support because of the relationships established through their teachers and counselors.

The teachers see these kids more than anyone else thus they know what shape their clothing and shoes are in.  They know hunger when they see it.

As you can see, this has become a very effective way for our funds to minister to those kids.  Once per month, I gather all the contributions and buy food and gift cards as well as write a check to “reload” the school assistance account.  The superintendent provides the details for optimum disbursement.

Servias takes no bows for we chose to be rather “anonymous” to these kids and their families.  Let Our Heavenly Father receive ALL the glory and honor.  Servias Ministries is simply here to serve!

Bring On The Fire

October 16th, 2020

As I shared yesterday, FATHER is a rewarder of those who diligently seek HIM.

It may seem like HE favors certain people but it is due to them receiving rewards from HIM based on them diligently seeking HIM.  HE will not punish or withhold blessing from the diligent seeker out of concern for the emotional state of onlookers.

FATHER spoke through Moses by The Holy Spirit 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:

How is this different from Hebrews 11:6?  It isn’t.  There is a multitude of blessings listed which were spoken by FATHER thus HE was and is fully committed to blessing those who diligently seek HIM on a day to day basis. 

As we listen to HIS Holy Spirit inside of us, HE will guide us into blessing specific to our needs AND desires.  Over the years, FATHER has given me the desires of my heart and I am truly grateful for those blessings.

Jesus will not tolerate any lukewarmness among us thus I am committed to sharing whatever The Holy Spirit directs to encourage those who have been lukewarm to depart from that condition as soon as possible.  We need to remove any hindrance from our midst that would move our focus away from diligently seeking HIM on a daily basis.  We should be on fire!

We should place a demand on our soul and body to be diligent on a daily basis.  In response, we will become intense in our daily commitment to diligence.

We need to manifest the baptism of fire.

John the Baptist spoke by The Holy Spirit in Luke chapter 3:

16 John answered, saying to all, “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 17 His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather the wheat into His barn; but the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire.”

John prophesied of the separation of fruitlessness (the chaff and tares) from the wheat when Jesus spoke about the last days in Matthew 13:

24 Then Jesus taught them another parable:

“Heaven’s kingdom realm can be compared to a farmer who planted good seed in his field. 25 But at night, when everyone was asleep, an enemy came and planted poisonous weeds among the wheat and ran away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and bore grain, the weeds also appeared. 27 So the farmer’s hired hands came to him and said, ‘Sir, wasn’t that good seed that you sowed in the field? Where did all these weeds come from?’

28 “He answered, ‘This has to be the work of an enemy!’

“They replied, ‘Do you want us to go and gather up all the weeds?’

29 “‘No,’ he said. ‘If you pull out the weeds you might uproot the wheat at the same time. 30 You must allow them both to grow together until the time of harvest. At that time, I’ll tell my harvesters to make sure they gather the weeds first and tie them all in bundles to be burned. Then they will harvest the wheat and put it into my barn.’”

The Kingdom of Heaven will be established on earth as the chaff and tares are removed.  Both aspects of unfruitfulness have one thing in common- fire.  It is one thing to operate baptized in The Holy Ghost, but we need to move on to the intensity of manifest the baptism of fire as well.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 1:

13 HE has rescued us completely from the tyrannical rule of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom realm of HIS Beloved Son. 14 For in the Son all our sins are canceled and we have the release of redemption through HIS very Blood.

We have been rescued from darkness so let us not allow darkness to infiltrate any aspect of our walk.  The Holy Spirit will warn us of any and all attempts by the enemy to encroach on our walk.  Demons will finally give up and look for weak and willing vessels to respond to their deceptions.

Paul also wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 5:

5 For it has been made clear to you already that the kingdom of GOD cannot be accessed by anyone who is guilty of sexual sin, or who is impure or greedy—for greed is the essence of idolatry. How could they expect to have an inheritance in Christ’s kingdom while doing those things?

6 Don’t be fooled by those who speak their empty words and deceptive teachings telling you otherwise. This is what brings GOD’S anger upon the rebellious! 7 Don’t listen to them or live like them at all. 8 Once your life was full of sin’s darkness, but now you have the very light of our Lord shining through you because of your union with Him. Your mission is to live as children flooded with His revelation-light! 9 And the supernatural fruits of His light will be seen in you—goodness, righteousness, and Truth. 10 Then you will learn to choose what is beautiful to our Lord.

11 And don’t even associate with the servants of darkness because they have no fruit in them; instead, reveal Truth to them. 12 The very things they do in secret are too vile and filthy to even mention. 13 Whatever the revelation-light exposes, it will also correct, and everything that reveals Truth is light to the soul. 14 This is why the Scripture says,

“Arise, you sleeper! Rise up from the dead and the Anointed One will shine His light into you!”

FATHER, bring on the Fire!

The Reward Of Diligence

October 15th, 2020

We need to quit limiting ourselves.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 11:

6 And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God. For we come to God in faith knowing that HE is real and that HE rewards the faith of those who give all their passion and strength into seeking HIM.

FATHER has a reward system in place.  Yes, HE Loves all of us but HE rewards those who diligently seek HIM with all their hearts.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 16:

29 His disciples said to Him, “See, now You are speaking plainly, and using no figure of speech! 30 Now we are sure that You know all things, and have no need that anyone should question You. By this we believe that You came forth from God.”

31 Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe? 32 Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. 33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

The Word of GOD should frame our existence and not allow the world to determine our value.  Each of us is of immense value and worth to Our Heavenly Father WHO sent HIS Son to restore you and me through His Blood.

How much is The Blood of Jesus worth?  IT exceeds that value of Heaven and earth as well as all who have ever dwelt on the earth and all who ever will dwell on the earth.  Jesus’ Blood is of infinite value and is beyond assessment!

Given that Jesus’ Blood purchase you and me then we should not depreciate ourselves down to the world’s standards.  Given the value that FATHER places on human life, anyone who promotes abortion is at risk of serious judgment unless they repent and seek forgiveness of their sins.  Without repentance, recompense will be required by Heaven.

The Holy Spirit directed the Beloved Disciple to write in Revelation chapter 3:

14…  ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:

Jesus explicitly tells us Who He is and the fact that He bore witness at the beginning of creation when our books containing Their Divine Intent for us were written (Psalm 139:16).  The world had not even fallen yet when our worth was established in Heaven.  No one in the world has a clue of our value to FATHER so let us not pay attention to the world’s various valuations.

15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—

Because of the Laodiceans’ lukewarmness, they had taken on the world’s views and standards of life success.  Their blindness had caused them to fail in their spiritual walk and were not counted among the Sons and Daughter.  They were disqualified.  However, Jesus wanted them to repent from their unrighteous state and be restored… even in the final days.

18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

We are in the final move of FATHER and must not allow ourselves to be disqualified in any aspect of our lives.  Accept the chastening.  Embrace the testing and tribulation.  Pray that your eyes be opened so that you will see and embrace the Spirit realm rather than the world’s current system.  The current system is being replaced by The Kingdom.  Which do you choose?

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

You and I have a place waiting for us to inhabit.  It is right next to Jesus’ Throne.  Yes, there is plenty of room for all of us!

Impoverished Kids Update

October 14th, 2020

The following testimonies are just three of many that our giving is accomplishing in assisting the impoverished kids.  There is no “red tape” and distribution is occurring through teachers and counselors who are seeing these kids every day.  The principals are all believers and thankful for our support of these kids!

Recently, some 4th grade teachers and I noticed a girl wearing cowboy boots.  Unfortunately, one of the soles had come loose from the toe to the arch of the boot.  This was very inconvenient for her and even dangerous on the stairs and at P.E.  We were able to purchase athletic shoes of her choice from Amazon.  She has worn them every day since!

A grandmother called out of concern for her daughter who is disabled and her grandson who attends our school.  The mother wants to be self-sufficient, however, this is not always possible.  The grandmother asked if we had a Christmas assistance program, so I added the daughter and grandson to that list.  I contacted the daughter to see if she was willing to accept this help.  During the call I also asked if she could benefit from a $50 food card and a $50 gift card to Walmart and she was extremely grateful.  The gift cards were delivered to her and I will follow up and contact her again in a few weeks to see if additional support is needed.

A grandmother called asking for her grandson, a student here, to be placed on the weekend food backpack list from the Regional Food Bank.  They have been working reduced hours for several months.  I offered a food card and a Walmart gift card.  She was so thankful that she came to the school immediately to pick up the cards.  This made it seem like the need was immediate and I was very happy to have access to the assistance that was needed. 

With All Boldness

October 13th, 2020

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 4:

8 Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, answered, “Respected elders and leaders of the people, listen.

9 Are we being put on trial today for doing an act of kindness by healing a frail, crippled man?

Well then, 10 you and everyone else in Israel should know that it is by the power of the Name of Jesus that the crippled man stands here today completely healed! You crucified Jesus Christ of Nazareth, but GOD raised Him from the dead. 11 This Jesus is ‘the stone that you, the builders, have rejected, and now He has become the Cornerstone!’ 12 There is no one else who has the power to save us, for there is ONLY ONE NAME to whom GOD has given authority by which we must experience salvation: the Name of Jesus.”

13 The council members were astonished as they witnessed the boldness of Peter and John, especially when they discovered that they were just ordinary men who had never had religious training. Then they began to understand the effect Jesus had on them simply by spending time with Him. 14 Standing there with them was the healed man, and there was nothing further they could say.

Boldness is courage, bravery, fearlessness, freedom from timidity, liberty to express without reservation; confident trust. 

Peter spoke from revelation, not simply observation or knowledge.  No one could take that revelation away from him and talk him out of the Absolute Truth of Who Jesus Christ is and by what power and authority the man was healed.  Nobody!

We need not focus on the world or demonic forces, we need to focus on fulfilling our callings with the same boldness by which Peter spoke.  I will not apologize for who I am in Christ, neither should you.  When you and I stand on the Absolute Truth, we stand in the position of power and authority given to us by Our Heavenly Father and HE will confirm HIS Word with signs and wonders.

Demons attempt to project thoughts and feelings into us attempting to redirect our focus away from the Power and authority of The Blood of Christ.  However, they cannot affect your spirit and that is why we need to be led by The Holy Spirit in all things.

Demons want you to hear, accept, and believe a lie.  That is what deception is all about.  This is why it is critical to renew our minds daily and guard against such deception.  Why does FATHER have me write these various Truths virtually every day?  These are critical times and we should ultimately come together in complete unity as Sons and Daughters.  None of us are islands meant to be isolated from those in Christ!

Yes, FATHER may have removed us from “congregations of unbelief” but I assure you that HIS Body of Christ is alive and well, longing for complete unity with the brothers and sisters in Christ.

I find that as I matured in Christ, I have become bold and have no hesitation in stating the Truth before those who FATHER leads me to in my daily affairs.  When you are speaking from a position of Truth, there is no debate or argument.  Boldness expresses itself with the confidence we have in Christ and His precious Blood.

The Holy Spirit is inside of us and that is where Life flows from.  The indwelling Spirit supersedes any outside influence is we will simply choose by what source we focus on.  As we submit to The Holy Spirit, an undeniable boldness will come on us as it did with Peter.  Men will marvel at what we say and do thus they will be unable to resist the Truth.

As the enemy sees your and my boldness in Christ and His Blood, they will go elsewhere to look for weak vessels to oppress and deceive.  In Acts chapter 19, it is recorded by The Holy Spirit:

11 Now GOD worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them. 13 Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the Name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” 14 Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so.

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”

16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the Name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. 19 Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So the Word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.

All demons are very aware of Jesus Christ and those who are led by The Holy Spirit.  They also are aware of imposters as shown above.  When we become “saturated” with The Word and walk in the boldness of The Word and The Spirit, demons will “know” us as well.  They will head in the opposite direction and seek someone else to overpower.  They are unable to keep The Word from spreading throughout the earth ultimately resulting in bring forth The Kingdom of GOD.

Nephilim: Part 7

Now is the time!  This mighty move of FATHER revealing HIMSELF to us will result in the kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdom of GOD.  Jesus instructed us to pray in Matthew chapter 6:

9 Pray like this:

‘OUR FATHER, dwelling in the Heavenly realms,

    may the glory of YOUR Name

    be the center on which our lives turn.

10 Manifest YOUR Kingdom realm,

    and cause YOUR every purpose to be fulfilled on earth,

    just as it is fulfilled in Heaven.

11 We acknowledge YOU as Our Provider

    of all we need each day.

12 Forgive us the wrongs we have done as we ourselves

    release forgiveness to those who have wronged us.

13 Rescue us every time we face tribulation

    and set us free from evil.

    For YOU are the King WHO rules

    with power and glory forever. Amen.’ (TPT)

Did Jesus mean what He said when He instructed us to pray for the complete manifestation of FATHER’S Kingdom on earth?  Absolutely!  This is the mandate of The Sons of GOD and we should not back away from this mandate in any manner whatsoever.

We are called to press in with great intensity and not allow the affairs of the world to disengage us from our individual callings.  Our books have been written and it is up to each of us to have the contents revealed to us by The Holy Spirit as we mature in our walk.  If we are too immature to have certain aspects revealed to us, we will resist certain aspects of our calling.  Let us put away all resistance to The Holy Spirit!

Jesus sent out seventy disciples to minister.  In Luke chapter 10, Jesus speaks to the returning seventy concerning the demons:

17 When the seventy missionaries returned to Jesus, they were ecstatic with joy, telling Him, “Lord, even the demons obeyed us when we commanded them in your name!”

18 Jesus replied, “While you were ministering, I watched satan topple until he fell suddenly from heaven like lightning to the ground. 19 Now you understand that I have imparted to you all my authority to trample over his kingdom. You will trample upon every demon before you and overcome every power Satan possesses. Absolutely nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority. 20 However, your real source of joy isn’t merely that these spirits submit to your authority, but that your names are written in the journals of heaven and that you belong to GOD’S Kingdom. This is the true source of your authority.”

If we have the true revelation of our authority over demons, we will not be surprised when we successfully cast them out of people, whether possessed or oppressed.  Our joy is that our names are written in Heaven!  No one on earth is going to recognize your true value but Heaven rejoices as you walk according to your calling.

If we will pursue the fullness of our calling, then we will come to know our true value in Heaven.  The kingdom of darkness tries to convince us that we are inferior to those who live by and promote deception.  On the contrary, they have but a little time left before the Light reveals the spirit of deception that operates within them.

The disembodied spirits have been exposed for who they are and there is no place for them to hide.  They have been exposed to the Light of The Word and we are not to be intimidated by them or their devices.  Let us embrace the authority given to us by Our Heavenly Father to bring forth Heaven to earth this very day!

FATHER made us a certain way and there are boundaries we must not cross.  We must not dabble in or pursue anything that would affect our genetic makeup.  The world would have us once again pursue modification away from redeem-ability as they did before the flood.  We now understand their promises of health and immortality are simply devices of deception.

Let us stay focused on fulfilling FATHER’S Divine Intent and come into full maturity as Sons and Daughters.

Nephilim: Part 6

October 11th, 2020

Demons are disembodied spirits who are unredeemable thus cannot be counted among the Sons of GOD.  Once you move away from the “image” of GOD by your own decision, you enter into judgment for such actions.

Men have tried to understand the effects of these demons by limited observation and empirical analysis but it can’t be done.  Only by The Word and The Holy Spirit will we be able to comprehend the ramifications of these disembodied spirits for they thrive in darkness and secrecy.

These demons are now in the image of their master- the devil.  His only power is that of deception thus they follow in his footsteps in a quest to deceive the world in order to retain power in the kingdom of darkness.  They provide such a contrast to those who are of the “image” of GOD.  Paul urges us by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 5:

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

3 And have nothing to do with sexual immorality, lust, or greed—for you are HIS Holy ones and let no one be able to accuse you of them in any form. 4 Guard your speech. Forsake obscenities and worthless insults; these are nonsensical words that bring disgrace and are unnecessary. Instead, let worship fill your heart and spill out in your words.

Contrast brings forth clarity.  Light versus dark makes decisions simple.  Are you promoting life and doing what is pleasing to FATHER or are you submitting to death and destruction thus promoting the motives of the adversary.  Passiveness is not much different than submitting to death and destruction.  Being an overcomer requires action and commitment on our part.  Discipline and obedience are two facets of Agape Love.

Many have intentionally backed away from dealing with evil spirits as though if they are “out of sight” then they will be “out of mind”.  Nothing could be further from the Truth.  They prefer us to back away from dealing with them.  However, Jesus had no problem in confronting them throughout His earthly ministry.  We shouldn’t either!

Why don’t believers deal with these evil spirits?  It is generally due to lack of understanding.  As we mature in our understanding by submitting to The Holy Spirit, we will be empowered to deal not only discern when someone is being plagued by a demon, we will know how to cast out the demon(s).  As it is written by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 10:

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

This should become our testimony as well.  Jesus Himself told us in Matthew chapter 17 how to deal with demons no matter how strong they have become in a person’s life:

14 They came to where a large crowd had gathered to wait for Jesus. A man came and knelt before Him 15 and said, “Lord, please show Your tender mercy toward my son. He has a demon who afflicts him. He has epilepsy, and he suffers horribly from seizures. He often falls into the cooking fire or into the river. 16 I brought him to Your followers, but they weren’t able to heal him.”

17 Jesus replied, “Where is your faith? Can’t you see how wayward and wrong this generation is? How much longer do I stay with you and put up with your doubts? Bring your son to Me.”

18 Then Jesus rebuked the demon and it came out of him and the boy was instantly healed!

19 Later the disciples came to Him privately and asked, “Why couldn’t we cast out the demon?”

20 He told them, “It was because of your lack of faith. I promise you, if you have faith inside of you no bigger than the size of a small mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move away from here and go over there,’ and you will see it move! There is nothing you couldn’t do! 21 But this kind of demon is cast out only through prayer and fasting.”

Are we to back away from this directive given to us by Jesus Himself?  Are we to allow those disembodied spirits to plague those who have no understanding of what has taken hold of them?  The world’s solution to epilepsy is the use of pharmaceuticals to simply mask the symptoms thus allowing the demon free reign in that person’s life.  What does Agape Love do?

We are now in a major move of FATHER revealing HIMSELF in a manner not seen before.  Even though the adversary thought that he would retain power by his deceptions which have blinded many who have been in the world’s authority, his days are numbered.  FATHER has always retained a remnant who kept themselves from being totally deceived. 

At times they have separated themselves from others who have allowed themselves to be compromised.  There have been times of needed isolation in order to be cleansed from the impurities of the world.  Yes, even warriors must regroup in times in preparation for the next stage of conflict.  This is when much prayer and fasting will empower us to take on darkness at a higher level.

Let us be in full understanding of the enemy and fear not when confronted with those nefarious individuals who are led by the disembodied spirits.  Their only weapon is deception… just as it was in the garden.
