Impoverished Kids: Another Testimonial

July 2nd, 2020

The following was received on 7/1:

During this crisis, we were able to supply grocery cards to of families that were in serious need.  The pandemic had especially impacted two families hard with loss of work for a couple of parents in both of these families.  They were VERY appreciative of the cards – I issued both families with two cards each.
The students are doing well, one just graduated, and is going to attend UCO (local university).  The other is succeeding (against the odds) and feels the support and love from you (Servias Ministries[anonomously]) and Bethany schools.
Thank you so much for your gratitude and action during this time of crisis.
Mark 

Thanks to all who contribute financially to Servias. FATHER knows who we are and will reward us for our cheerful giving!

Revealing Christ In Us

July 1st, 2020

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Psalm 81:

13 “O that My people would once and for all listen to Me

and walk faithfully in My footsteps, following My ways.

14 Then and only then will I conquer your every foe

and tell every one of them, ‘You must go!’

15 Those who hate My ways will cringe before Me

and their punishment will be eternal.

16 But I will feed you with My spiritual bread.

You will feast and be satisfied with Me,

feeding on My revelation-Truth like honey

dripping from the cliffs of the high place.”

We are to walk in the footsteps of Jesus here on earth.  Many people want to escape this earth, get their glorified body, and head to heaven sooner rather than later.  In the meantime, the unrighteous continue to live in blindness.  What would Love do?

We are here to minister life to those in darkness.  We are to Love our enemies and what better way to Love them than to convert them to righteousness making them brothers and sisters in Christ.

We should be openly testifying of the work of Our Heavenly Father in our lives to whomever we come in contact.  We should be pursuing excellence in all that we do so that our actions become a testimony as well.  We are not to hide ourselves in a basement and hoard beans and rice expecting the end to come.

Paul stated unequivocally by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 4:

19 I am convinced that my God will fully satisfy every need you have, for I have seen the abundant riches of glory revealed to me through the Anointed One, Jesus Christ! 20 And God our Father will receive all the glory and the honor throughout the eternity of eternities! Amen!

Would Our Heavenly Father supply only one aspect of our needs?  HE is far superior to any earthly father’s love thus we must erase scarcity-oriented thinking from our minds.

It is written in Colossians chapter 3 by The Holy Spirit:

1 Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority! 2 Yes, feast on all the treasures of the Heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with Heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm.

3 Your crucifixion with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ. 4 And as Christ Himself is seen for who He really is, who you really are will also be revealed, for you are now one with Him in His glory!

Our past mindset has been unable to accept the Truth found in the above passage.  We have been taught to be willing slaves to the world’s system and orientation.  It was not done with literal prisons and barbed-wire fences.  It was done by convincing us of being powerless to act in any way other than to conform to the world’s standards. 

FATHER has given us HIS Divine Intent for us to follow as we walk this earth.  Once we get to Heaven, there will be no issues to deal with any longer.  We don’t need empowerment once we get to Heaven for FATHER’S Presence removes all issues requiring such empowerment.  We need to walk in it now.  As we continue to press in and cast away any and all hindrances, Christ in us will come forth in HIS glory and we too will walk in power, honor, and authority.  Amen!

Increasing Urgency

June 30th, 2020

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 13:

8 Don’t owe anything to anyone, except your outstanding debt to continually Love one another, for the one who learns to Love has fulfilled every requirement of the law. 9 For the commandments, “Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not covet,” and every other commandment can be summed up in these words:

“Love and value others the same way you love and value yourself.”

10 Love makes it impossible to harm another, so Love fulfills all that the law requires.

11 To live like this is all the more urgent, for time is running out and you know it is a strategic hour in human history. It is time for us to wake up! For our full salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.

I have an increasing urgency to compel those who have ears to hear, “Now is the time to set aside all other priorities and press into the fullness of Christ.”  Do not procrastinate another day but place your focus on walking in the fullness of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

12 Night’s darkness is dissolving away as a new day of destiny dawns.  So we must once and for all strip away what is done in the shadows of darkness, removing it like filthy clothes. And once and for all we clothe ourselves with the radiance of light as our weapon. 13 We must live honorably, surrounded by the light of this new day, not in the darkness of drunkenness and debauchery, not in promiscuity and sensuality, not being argumentative or jealous of others.

14 Instead fully immerse yourselves into the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, and don’t waste even a moment’s thought on your former identity to awaken its selfish desires.

Our weapon is that “radiance of light” which contains power and authority from On High.  Let us not even consider our current station in life for it does not determine our ministry or calling.  Jesus was known as a carpenter’s son until His time arrived.  Afterward, He changed the world.  You and I are called to change the world as well.

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

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!”

Does this sound like some mandate for some future date?  No!  We are intended to have light shining in us and through us today.  This is the urgency I am expressing to you today.  Let us press in like never before and shed those past teachings which promote delays in receiving the fullness.  Do I need the fullness after I have passed away and have entered FATHER’S Presence in Heaven?  Do I need power and authority in Heaven or on this earth?

The world needs to be saved, not Heaven.  We need to come to our true senses and no longer tolerate living life at a minimum.  We have a mission, let’s fulfill it!

One Response to the warning

June 29th, 2020

Our Beloved Sister said it all:

Beloved Brother,
Thank you for being thoughtful about sharing this. I’ve been keeping myself away from the news and even removed two apps from my phone because the current events and the load of information started to take my peace and focus away. So, as you have always written in your blogs, I am seeking to be led by the Spirit in every area of my life and that requires to quiet the mind because I have come to realize that the Spirit speaks within our spirits and the mind always gets in the way if it’s not under control. I am realizing this now more and more. There’s so much fearmongering on the internet, yet we need to be listening to the Lord’s directions.
Thank you!

PS: I too have removed several apps from my phone and PC as well.

A Technology Warning

June 29th, 2020

FATHER has been dealing with me in a significant fashion about reliance on both technology and the Internet.  Some may recall me mentioning the “watch” date of July 5th.  I cannot say at this time if there will be a significant event for any others besides my family.  However, the ongoing message about technology failure has been significant.

Those who have data/files/records on their PC’s should back them up without delay.  It is always a good idea to have a fresh backup of important data you keep on your computer.  I am taking steps to do the same even though it is a pain to take time away from other activities.

I recall FATHER giving me a similar warning in the late 1980’s and I delayed taking action.  I procrastinated and it cost me dearly.  For whatever reason, I am not to delay concerning this warning. 

We have experienced multiple, diverse technology failures since the initial warning, all were minor and had no lasting effect.  It has actually become laughable as each failure has occurred.  However when an angel intervenes and sets a “watch” date, I cannot disregard it.  How will the event or events transpire?  I have not been given any details but that is no issue to me.  I will simply be prepared for whatever transpires.

Taking A Stand

June 28th, 2020

When people thought in only two dimensions, they believed the earth to be flat.   

The idea of a spherical Earth was floated around by Pythagoras around 500 BC and validated by Aristotle a couple centuries later. If the Earth really was a sphere, Eratosthenes could use his observations to estimate the circumference of the entire planet.  In the end, FATHER’S Word and confirmed by mathematics allowed mankind to arrive at the revelation that the earth was spherical.

There are higher and more dimensions than man can observe.  These dimensions are only realized by revelation from Our Heavenly Father by HIS Spirit.  These other dimensions are active and all around us but most people have no idea of their impact.  FATHER’S Ways are higher than our ways.  We actually access these higher dimensions as we are led by The Holy Spirit in our daily walk.

At what level do you want to walk out your life?  The lower dimensions are currently oriented to scarcity whereas the higher dimensions support abundance in all areas.  The world wants to keep us subjected to the lowest aspect of existence in servitude.  They use men’s limited ability to think with their minds and coerce them into subjection by appealing to emotions.

Who operates at the highest level of Absolute Truth, total knowledge, and understanding?  Only Our Heavenly Father does thus no man or group of men can truly rule the earth properly without subjecting themselves to The Holy Spirit or at a minimum, HIS Word.

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Psalms 36:

6 YOUR righteousness is unmovable,

just like the mighty mountains.

YOUR judgments are as full of wisdom

as the oceans are full of water.

YOUR tender care and kindness leave no one forgotten,

not a man nor even a mouse.

7 O GOD, how extravagant is YOUR cherishing Love!

All mankind can find a hiding place

under the shadow of your wings.

8 All may drink of the anointing from the abundance of YOUR house.

All may drink their fill from the delightful springs of Eden.

9 To know you is to experience a flowing fountain,

drinking in YOUR Life, springing up to satisfy.

In YOUR light we receive the light of revelation.

10 LORD, keep pouring out YOUR unfailing Love

on those who are near you.

Release more of YOUR blessings to those who are loyal to YOU.

11 Don’t let these proud boasters trample me down;

don’t let them push me around

by the sheer strength of their wickedness.

12 There they lie in the dirt, these evil ones,

thrown down to the ground, never to arise again!

We must remain strong as nefarious individuals try to redirect our thinking and emotions away from the Absolute Truth.  All lives matter, even the mouse.  You are not going to change the course of mankind by modifying their behavior and enforcing such modification.  When a man’s heart changes, his life establishes a new direction.  Just look at Paul who was Saul.

My wife and I are pro-life because FATHER is pro-life.  We are pro “law and order” thus in this fallen world, we need policemen who enforce the law.  The angels enforce FATHER’S Word here on earth when called upon by those righteous prayers.

Am I concerned about a candidate’s past when he is now committed to walking out FATHER’S plan?  The church is not concerned about Paul’s past as they preach from his epistles given to him by The Holy Spirit.

There is much blindness occurring and we must not stand by in a passive state hoping FATHER will “rapture” us out of this mess.  We are here to be HIS ministers of light.  That requires action on our part.  If you are doing nothing, you don’t need to be “led” by The Holy Spirit.  We are called to act and spread the Absolute Truth, not hide in some basement with a couple of sacks of beans.

In the 4th chapter of Esther it is written by The Holy Spirit:

13 And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

15 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: 16 “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!

There is much at stake over the next months and years.  We are meant to rise up and take a stand for righteousness sake and be of good courage.  Now is the time.

Testimonies

June 27th, 2020

Each of us can express Truth in whatever setting we are in. The following pictures were taken at our local clinic when my wife was having blood drawn for a checkup.

By The Holy Spirit’s Direction

June 26th, 2020

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

2 You need to know that God’s passion is burning inside me for you, because, like a loving father, I have pledged your hand in marriage to Christ, your true bridegroom. I’ve also promised that I would present his fiancée to Him as a pure virgin bride. 3 But now I’m afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s clever lies, your thoughts may be corrupted and you may lose your single-hearted devotion and pure Love for Christ. 4 For you seem to gladly tolerate anyone who comes to you preaching a pseudo-Jesus, not the Jesus we have preached. You have accepted a spirit and gospel that is false, rather than the Spirit and gospel you once embraced. How tolerant you have become of these imposters!

We must protect our minds from a “watered down” gospel that compromises FATHER’S Divine Intent.  Mature believers will sift out such compromise and not be led astray by the soulish intent of those who seek to exalt themselves in the eyes of many.  My desire is that each of us grow up into full maturity so that we are led by The Holy Spirit in all matters.

As I give up the soulish intentions to “make things happen”, The Holy Spirit intervenes and brings forth blessing in the various areas of my activities.  Even the mundane tasks are being blessed!  I no longer loathe those tasks but now embrace them for I intend to do every task “unto THE LORD”.  What has changed?  My mindset has.  Wisdom is guiding me more and more each day so that I embrace all aspects of my walk, not just the spectacular or impressive.

Paul uses the word wisdom sixteen times in the first three chapters of 1 Corinthians.  The number of Agape Love is 16 thus Wisdom and Love are fully connected as both have come from FATHER WHO is LOVE.

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

6 However, there is a Wisdom that we continually speak of when we are among the spiritually mature. It’s Wisdom that didn’t originate in this present age, nor did it come from the rulers of this age who are in the process of being dethroned.

Most of us are aware of the “rulers of this age” who are currently attempting to enslave mankind by any means possible.  How do we participate in dethroning them?  By praying that all demonic influence and protection be removed from them.  When the demons depart, men and women come to their senses or else they deteriorate toward death.  Think about it.

7 Instead, we continually speak of this wonderful Wisdom that comes from GOD, hidden before now in a mystery. It is HIS secret plan, destined before the ages, to bring us into glory. 8 None of the rulers of this present world order understood it, for if they had, they never would have crucified the Lord of shining glory.

9 This is why the Scriptures say:

Things never discovered or heard of before,

    things beyond our ability to imagine—

    these are the many things GOD has in store

    for all HIS Lovers.

How exciting it is to have FATHER reveal HIS secret plan for each of us as we walk toward the bright light of HIS Love and Divine Intent.  Let us hold fast to HIS plan and not allow the world to redirect our focus elsewhere.  We must let patience have its perfect work and know that the angels are dispatched on our behalf in all areas of our walk.  They are commissioned to fulfill FATHER’S Divine Intent in our lives… without exception as we walk in Agape Love.

10 But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit. Yes, HE has revealed to us HIS inmost Heart and deepest mysteries through the Holy Spirit, who constantly explores all things. 11 After all, who can really see into a person’s heart and know his hidden impulses except for that person’s spirit? So it is with God. HIS thoughts and secrets are only fully understood by HIS Spirit, the Spirit of God.

How can I be more emphatic concerning praying in The Holy Spirit!  This is critical for those of us who are seeking to come into the fullness of the mysteries being revealed at this hour.  I don’t need another intellectual discussion about theories or hypotheses.  I need to be fully led by The Holy Spirit WHO expresses the Absolute Truth in all areas of my life.

12 For we did not receive the spirit of this world system but the Spirit of God, so that we might come to understand and experience all that grace has lavished upon us. 13 And we articulate these realities with the Words imparted to us by the Spirit and not with the words taught by human wisdom. We join together Spirit-revealed Truths with Spirit-revealed Words. 14 Someone living on an entirely human level rejects the revelations of GOD’S Spirit, for they make no sense to him. He can’t understand the revelations of the Spirit because they are only discovered by the illumination of the Spirit. 15 Those who live in the Spirit are able to carefully evaluate all things, and they are subject to the scrutiny of no one but GOD. 16 For

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

Christ has, and we possess Christ’s perceptions.

Now is the time to abandon all soulish habits and fully submit to The Holy Spirit.  This is how lives are changed from glory to glory.  It is no longer “my way or the highway” but however The Holy Spirit leads me, I will proceed no matter what the world says.

Impoverished Kids Update

June 25th, 2020

The following was reported to me this morning:

During this time of separation from students, teachers have been very concerned that some of our low socioeconomic students are getting what they need.  Teachers know how much these families struggled under normal circumstances and can only imagine how Covid has added to that struggle.  When I was able to share with the teachers that we had been able to provide the Crest cards, they have been very relieved to know these families have people looking out for them and helping them.  We can’t wait to see students again because when we see them daily we know they are ok.  However, teachers have expressed how comforting it is to know that we have the means to help those families while we wait to see them again. 

FATHER knows who gives to these children and will bless us from various sources because we are giving with cheerful hearts.

Absolute Fullness

June 24th, 2020

I sent this to my daughter this morning:

My Beloved Daughter,

As I was praying this morning, The Holy Spirit directed me to Philippians chapter 3 in the Passion Translation:

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+3&version=TPT

Read this and replace Paul with me and you will see where I am at today.  All of my past accomplishments are but a heap of dung in comparison to the joy of knowing My Lord Jesus Christ and being led by The Holy Spirit in all areas.

Your Loving Dad 

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 3:

9 My passion is to be consumed with Him (Jesus Christ) and not clinging to my own “righteousness” based in keeping the written Law. My “righteousness” will be His, based on the faithfulness of Jesus Christ—the very righteousness that comes from GOD. 10 And I continually long to know the wonders of Jesus more fully and to experience the overflowing power of His resurrection working in me. I will be one with Him in his sufferings and I will be one with Him in His death. 11 Only then will I be able to experience complete oneness with Him in His resurrection from the realm of death.

12 I admit that I haven’t yet acquired the absolute fullness that I’m pursuing, but I run with passion into His abundance so that I may reach the purpose that Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover. 13 I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. 14 I run straight for the Divine invitation of reaching the Heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus. 15 So let all who are fully mature have this same passion, and if anyone is not yet gripped by these desires, GOD will reveal it to them. 16 And let us all advance together to reach this victory-prize, following one path (known as The Way) with one passion.

Let this same passion I am walking in be embraced by you as well.  What else matters?  The anointing of Jesus Christ, that power and authority giving to Him by FATHER, is what each of us needs to minister life and healing to those around us.

I am in daily pursuit of the “absolute fullness” of walking in such anointing, not for my own glory, but to express the Agape Love of Jesus Christ to this dying world.  Oh how I hope those who read the words will pursue that same fullness.

I know about weariness and frustration for I have suffered just like many of you.  I know what it means to be in lack as well as be in abundance.  I know what it means to have loved ones at odds with the family.  I know what it means to have bosses who were persistent manipulators and thrived on being in control of others.  I know what it means to have friends who have abandoned our relationship.  However, Jesus Christ has delivered me out of all those situations.

This is the day that THE LORD has made, rejoice and be glad in it.  We are not defined by the past for we are defined by FATHER’S Divine Intent so let us pursue HIS Intent with unyielding passion today!
