Giving To The Poor

January 19th, 2020

I desire each of us to live out of our spirits which are connected to The Holy Spirit.  I have no interest in using the power of suggestion like the media uses in commercials.  Neither am I interested in manipulating facts in order to move you along a path of my choosing. 

My goal is that we are all led by The Holy Spirit in a consistency that brings forth glory to Our Heavenly Father and testifies of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Anything else is simply worthless and will distance us from FATHER’S perfect plan, will, and purpose.

When we are fully led by The Holy Spirit, you and I will be in unity and our impact on this world will dramatically increase.  The result will be an increase in FATHER’S Kingdom on earth.

There are no limitations in Heaven and so there are no limitations to those who fully walk by The Holy Spirit.  Yielding to THE SPIRIT removes all limitations we previously walked in.

Angels are sent to get you to cooperate with Heaven and fulfill what is written in your book in Heaven (Psalm 139:16).  They will protect you from disaster but will not act outside FATHER’S Will.  They are in strict obedience to FATHER’S Word so in order for us to activate angels on our behalf, we must be in obedience to The Word as well.  We must not dilute the Word with man’s opinions or our own rationalization why HIS Word does not mean what It says.  This is what happened in the Garden.

In Matthew chapter 19, it is written by The Holy Spirit for our benefit:

16 Now behold, one came and said to Him, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?”

17 So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.”

18 He said to Him, “Which ones?”

Jesus said, “‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ 19 ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”

20 The young man said to Him, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?”

21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

Jesus urged the young man to disconnect himself from the world system, specifically in the area of finances.  By giving his wealth to the poor, the young man would receive treasure in Heaven which is far superior to what he currently had.

Do you think the young man would then live in scarcity and lack for the rest of his life?  Absolutely not!  He would have set himself up with FATHER’S favor in everything he set his hand to do.  His resources would then be Holy and set apart for his Heavenly purpose following Jesus.

If you want to be perfect, your wealth must not be off limits to FATHER.  The Sons and Daughters who desire to reach full maturity (perfect) must be willing to offer up that which is FATHER’S to begin with.  The tithe was never mine, just like the tree in the Garden was never Adam’s to eat from and consume its fruit.

If the devourer is active in your life, then there is an issue to be dealt with.  You can argue doctrine and debate all you want or you can simply “test” FATHER to see if HE won’t rebuke the devourer for your sake.

FATHER’S Agape Love wants to protect your resources through HIS command of the tithe.  Those who receive this revelation will act in accordance with Malachi chapter 3.  Abram tithed before he received the full revelation of his calling thus FATHER prepared him for the next level of his calling.

Jesus urged the young man to give to the poor who could not repay him.  This would obligate FATHER to bless his giving for FATHER repays those who take care of the poor, the orphans, and widows.  The rich young ruler was “owned” by his wealth rather than be submitted to FATHER’S ownership of Holiness.

Never tithe out of compulsion. Give out of Agape Love!

Tithing’s Holiness

January 18th, 2020

The Holy Spirit recorded in Psalm 34:

9 ​​Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!

​​There is no want to those who fear Him.

10 ​​The young lions lack and suffer hunger;

​​But those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.

And in Psalm 111:

​10 ​​The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;

​​A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.

​​His praise endures forever.

What was FATHER’S first commandment to man?  It is recorded by The Holy Spirit in Genesis chapter 2:

15 Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Out of all the fruit-bearing trees in the Garden, only one was off limits.  Why?  FATHER reserved it for HIMSELF.  However, Adam was directed to tend and keep the Garden and there was no mention of excluding any tree from his labor.  Adam’s tending of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil effectively represented a tithe for it was not his to partake.  This established the Truth that FATHER is supreme to Adam and thus man has established boundaries which cannot be ignored.

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was surely a fig tree since both Adam and Eve immediately covered themselves with fig leaves once their eyes were opened.  It was the closest tree at the time so they would have taken leaves from it.  Didn’t they in essence consume the tithe and treat it as “common” rather than Holy? 

This tree tested Adam and Eve concerning “the fear of the LORD” and they failed the test.  They relied on the worldly wisdom of the serpent rather than submit to FATHER’S Wisdom and understanding freely given in the command.  They consumed the tithe and submitted to the devourer thus opening the door for the thief to kill, steal, and destroy.

In Genesis chapter 14, it is written by The Holy Spirit:

18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. 19 And he blessed him and said:

​​​“Blessed be Abram of God Most High,

​​Possessor of heaven and earth;

20 ​​And blessed be God Most High,

​​Who has delivered your enemies into your hand.”

​And he gave him a tithe of all.

How did Abram know about tithing?  How did Melchizedek know about tithing?  WHO revealed to Melchizedek that he was a priest of GOD Most High?

How did Melchizedek know about communion?

It is written by The Holy Spirit In Hebrews chapter 7:

1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, 2 to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated “king of righteousness,” and then also king of Salem, meaning “king of peace,” 3 without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually.

“Made like the Son of God” is different than “being” the Son of GOD.  Wouldn’t Melchizedek have fulfilled the ministry of Our Lord Jesus Christ if He truly was Jesus standing before Abram?  The point is that communion and tithing go hand in hand.  Both require us to have “the fear of THE LORD” when we participate or else we have missed a critical aspect of both.

When we give a tithe, we should give it in complete reverence to the tithe being FATHER’S and not ours.  It we casually give a tithe, the fear of THE LORD is missing in the act tied to giving what is due HIM.   FATHER’S great grace and mercy have intervened on our behalf since we did not have revelation of the importance of the act of tithing.  Now we are accountable for how we give our tithes and offerings.  Let that Holy firstfruit be acknowledged in proper fashion.

Chosen And Favored

January 17th, 2020

You and I are in the priesthood.  Peter wrote by The Holy Spirit in his first epistle chapter 2:

4 So keep coming to him who is the Living Stone—though he was rejected and discarded by men but chosen by God and is priceless in God’s sight. 5 Come and be his “living stones” who are continually being assembled into a sanctuary for God. For now you serve as holy priests, offering up spiritual sacrifices that HE readily accepts through Jesus Christ.

To be identified as Christ’s living stones means that we are in union with Him and share His nature, for He is the Living Stone.  Wherever we go, favor must have its way and we will operate in the blessings ordained by FATHER and released to us through our honoring HIM in our lives.  Our actions reflect our Holiness.

You and I are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a HOLY nation, HIS own special people, that you and I may proclaim the praises of HIM who called us out of darkness into HIS marvelous light.  We are to walk in the light and that light will draw favor from every area.

Favor is not positional, it is relational.  Just because you attain a position in a ministry does not mean you will receive favor.  If you have matured into a relationship with Our Heavenly Father, you have opened yourself up to HIS favor.  This is why earthly titles mean nothing in Heaven.  I claim to be no expert in any discipline whatsoever even though the world promotes titles in just about every discipline of study.

We must seek to walk in the legitimacy of The Gospel, not what men have cleverly taught in order to support their own agenda.  This is one of a multitude of reasons I must pray in The Holy Spirit daily.  We don’t need to be waiting on FATHER to impart some new mystery, we need to walk in the pure Gospel we have received.  While many sit passively by, children are going hungry.  The adversary promotes passiveness by having people focus only on future events at the expense of “now”.  Is your angel sitting around and waiting for you to become active?

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 1:

13 But to which of the angels has He ever said:

​​“Sit at My right hand,

​​Till I make Your enemies Your footstool” ?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

Angels minister “for” us and are sent to accomplish those things which promote the Kingdom.  Each of the angels assigned to you and me should be busy all the time as we step into the fullness of our purpose.

We have received much revelation and some of us have had visitations but it is time for habitation and walking in HIS Glory.  Jesus spoke in John chapter 14:

23 Jesus replied, “Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place.”

Jesus set an expectation of habitation in those who Love Him and keep HIS Word. HE will inhabit those who fully walk in Agape Love and our focus is to “master” walking in that Love.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 12:

1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship

FATHER inhabits the praise and worship of HIS Sons and Daughters so let us become a consistent and acceptable habitation for HIM, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit.  Then, we will be known as one of the “lively” stones.

Our Holy Firstfruits

January 16th, 2020

FATHER did not come up with the idea of the tithe and then create us to submit to it.  The tithe is for our benefit and to help us fulfill our calling.  The 10% was never yours or mine, it sets apart the whole as being Holy and off limits to the devourer.

Let’s take a close look at Malachi chapter 3 which was written by The Holy Spirit:

8 ​​“Will a man rob God?

​​Yet you have robbed Me!

​​But you say,

​‘​In what way have we robbed You?’

​​In tithes and offerings.

9 ​​You are cursed with a curse,

​​For you have robbed Me,

​​Even this whole nation.

10 ​​Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,

​​That there may be food in My house,

​​And try (H974) Me now in this,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts,

​​“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven

​​And pour out for you such blessing

​​That there will not be room enough to receive it.

​11 ​​“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes,

​​So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,

​​Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts;

12 ​​And all nations will call you blessed,

​​For you will be a delightful land,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts.

Where else in Scripture does FATHER say to “test” HIM or HIS Word?  This shows us how important it is for us to understand the benefit of tithes and offerings to us.  HE commits to rebuke the devourer for our sakes and HE commits to open up the windows of Heaven to pour out blessings to us.  What will be the result of my tithing?  All the nations will call me blessed.

The tithe protects the rest of our income from the devourer.  This Truth is also found in Romans chapter 11, written by The Holy Spirit:

16  For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.

Jesus spoke the following parable in Luke 13:

20 Jesus taught them another parable: “How can I describe God’s kingdom realm? Let me give you this illustration: 21 It is like something as small as yeast that a woman kneads into a large amount of dough. It works unseen until it permeates the entire batch and rises high.”

When we tithe, the rest of the income we receive is Holy unto FATHER as well.  We need to understand this Truth so that we can proclaim it and be thankful when we give.  We will no longer see it as anything but an act of Love toward FATHER by giving HIM what is already HIS to begin with.  This act reinforces our position against greed and idol worship.  The tithe permeates all aspects of our life and we begin to see the blessings surrounding us.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 5:

17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Is the revelation of the Divine Intent of the tithe part of FATHER’S Law?  Isn’t this the one command HE said to test HIM in? 

A law is a rule, particularly an established or permanent rule, prescribed by the supreme power of a state to its subjects, for regulating their actions, particularly their social actions. Laws are imperative or mandatory, commanding what shall be done; prohibitory, restraining from what is to be forborne; or permissive, declaring what may be done without incurring a penalty.

It is my responsibility to teach FATHER’S Divine Intent of Love toward us.  This includes showing others The Way out of enslavement by the world.  Tithing requires us to have faith in FATHER’S Word and expect HIS Word to come to pass in our life.  I can attest to the benefits of tithing thus I am speaking from experience. 

It is up to each of us to get the revelation of this benefit because it is counterintuitive to what the world promotes… as usual.  FATHER says to test HIM.  Isn’t that a command as well?

FATHER sanctifies and protects the “whole” by receiving the tithe and as a result HE protects us from loss to the devourer who will steal from us without hesitation.  HE created boundaries for us in all areas, not for restriction but to benefit, protect us, and promote our Divine purpose.  Let our finances reflect HIS Divine Intent as well.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 9:

6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 9 As it is written:

​​​“He has dispersed abroad,

​​He has given to the poor;

​​His righteousness endures forever.”

​10 Now may HE who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, 11 while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God. 12 For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God, 13 while, through the proof of this ministry, they glorify God for the obedience of your confession to the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal sharing with them and all men, 14 and by their prayer for you, who long for you because of the exceeding grace of God in you. 15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!

Servias Ministries accepts tithes and offerings.  Since our overhead is extremely low, most of your giving will be directed to our current focus of helping impoverished children.  Be assured that their angels are communicating the blessings before FATHER’S Face on the behalf of those who support this ministry.  If you are not led to join us in this project, ask FATHER where to direct your giving.  It is FATHER’S Will that we bear much fruit… including our finances.  FATHER doesn’t want our 10%, HE wants us!

FATHER’S Blessings

January 15th, 2020

What is FATHER’s Divine Intent for us concerning blessing and prosperity?  Are we to live a life of scarcity, barely making it from paycheck to paycheck?  Are we then expected to tithe or give cheerfully when there is not enough to feed our own family or pay our bills in a timely manner?  FATHER is no taskmaster and we must rely on HIS Divine Love and mercy in our lives as we move from scarcity to prosperity.

My wife and I were in the above situation early in our marriage.  I would feel guilty that I couldn’t afford to give when the pastor was compelling the congregation to give offerings.  What did I have to offer Our Heavenly Father?  Time.  We volunteered and helped out in the various activities of the church.  That represented our offerings at the time and FATHER received those offerings, we pleased FATHER similar to when Jesus was pleased with the widow who gave two mites.

Over time, our seed and our harvest grew as FATHER’S blessings came forth.  We received grace from FATHER and became highly favored in various situations which allowed us to prosper.  FATHER is faithful to HIS Word and HE has not changed, nor will HE.

The Holy Spirit recorded in Deuteronomy Chapter 28, FATHER’S Divine Intent for those who HE called out of the world system and into the Promised Land:

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:

3 “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.

4 “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

5 “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

6 “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

7 “The LORD will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

8 “The LORD will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you.

9 “The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways. 10 Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the LORD will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. 14 So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

The children of Israel were set apart and so are you and me.  They were to inhabit the Promised Land but were not intended to live a life of scarcity indebted to other nations (aka the world).  Neither are we for we have been engrafted as Sons and Daughters of the MOST HIGH GOD thus we are intended to walk in the same blessings as were mentioned above.

The key to HIS blessings is our intent.  Are we willing to diligently obey the voice of the LORD OUR GOD?   Isn’t that the sign of a mature Son or Daughter?

Many have used the blessings of Deuteronomy 28 for their own enrichment and have quoted the verses over and over thinking FATHER would finally give in to their soulish desires.  The blessings from Heaven were and are intended to further HIS Kingdom and not some worldly pursuit.  As we embrace the prosperity meant to fund our individual purposes, let us not allow the past misuses to taint the revelation given by FATHER to us in HIS Word. 

Every now and then, we need to simply reset our thinking and allow fresh revelation to wipe away the past misunderstandings and experiences.  The blessings of obedience still hold true and those of us who accept FATHER’S Divine Intent for blessing will be able to fulfill what The Holy Spirit instructs without reluctance.  There is no need to be enslaved by the world’s system when FATHER has provided The Way for us to walk in.

Bringing Into Subjection

January 14th, 2020

FATHER first deals with your spiritual issues.  However, we have to get to the end of ourselves.  The solution to our current issues lies with our relationship with Jesus Christ.  Most of us don’t really understand eternity which is necessary to understand ourselves.  Being born again means that we don’t fit in with the world and its goals, customs, and expectations.

We are called to be separate from the world.  Holiness is ownership meaning we have been adopted into Sonship.  Our mind, will, and emotions must be renewed so that we are truly transformed in order to walk as mature sons and daughters.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians chapter 10:

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

Every thought is subject to the sifting of The Holy Spirit.  You may be able to watch your words, but are you watching your thoughts as well?  Those thoughts reflect your true condition.  Do you get upset at a car that cuts you off or do you acknowledge that this is a broken world and those things will happen?

When you read FATHER’S Word and question HIS intention, you are not yet fully trusting IN HIM.  If we truly believe the Word to be absolute Truth, we will respond in trust.  You may have been brought up in an environment where most don’t keep their word and now you have to overcome that programming.

I am not in charge of my life, FATHER is.  Since that is the case, I seek to do HIS perfect Will in all areas, including my thought life. If I am told to renew my mind and do not be conformed to this world, then I must make it a priority.  Only then will I be able to prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of Our Heavenly Father.  That proof determines my daily walk and the state of peace that I walk in.  When I am challenged by the world, I no longer respond based on the soul’s position.  I respond with the Word as Jesus did when He was tested.

When the Word comes to you, you will either embrace It or confront it.  I choose to embrace It and dramatically reduce the amount of time to maturity.  I was once hard-headed but that time has passed and now I simply prefer to do the Words of Jesus without confronting or challenging it with soulish reckoning.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 5:

1 Be imitators of God in everything you do, for then you will represent your Father as his Beloved Sons and Daughters.

If you imitate Jesus, you are imitating Our Heavenly Father.  This is what we are called to do.  In Ephesians 1, Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit:

4 And HE chose us to be his very own, joining us to HIMSELF even before HE laid the foundation of the universe!  Because of his great love, HE ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in HIS eyes with an unstained innocence.

You and I are meant to represent FATHER before the world as we are called to be “imitators” of HIM in all areas of our life.  Just as a son imitates his earthly father, we are to walk in the likeness of Our Heavenly Father.  HE ordained this before the foundation of the world.  It is written in our Heavenly books describing our destiny (Psalm 139:16).

11 Through our union with Christ we too have been claimed by God as HIS own inheritance. Before we were even born, he gave us our destiny; that we would fulfill the plan of GOD WHO always accomplishes every purpose and plan in HIS heart.

As you and I passionately seek to walk in the fullness by being led of The Holy Spirit in all areas, we will become fitly joined together with the Chief Cornerstone, Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Our lives will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God’s power made available to us through faith. Then our lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through us!

Let us bring our minds into full subjection so that the immeasurable greatness of HIS power will operate consistently and bless others.

Malachi 3

January 13th, 2020

We can live our lives based on our own ability to generate provision or we can submit to Our Heavenly Father and HE will provide for us with HIS supernatural provision which was determined before HE formed us in the womb.  It is our choice.

Malachi wrote by The Holy Spirit in chapter 3:

8 ​​“Will a man rob God?

​​Yet you have robbed Me!

​​But you say,

​‘​In what way have we robbed You?’

​​In tithes and offerings.

9 ​​You are cursed with a curse,

​​For you have robbed Me,

​​Even this whole nation.

10 ​​Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,

​​That there may be food in My house,

​​And try Me now in this,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts,

​​“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven

​​And pour out for you such blessing

​​That there will not be room enough to receive it.

11 ​​“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes,

​​So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,

​​Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts;

12 ​​And all nations will call you blessed,

​​For you will be a delightful land,”

​​Says the LORD of hosts.

FATHER committed to each of us to a provision beyond our ability to comprehend it.  HE spoke and said “I will pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”  If you believe HIS Word then you must accept the reality of this passage as well.

HE said to bring HIM the tithes into the storehouse else we are robbing HIM, not the recipients.  Out of my Love for you, I am willing to write about this sensitive subject knowing it will be rejected by some.  However, should I be silent when I know this Truth has manifested in my life?  Should I hold back in effort to keep from offending people in this area?  Fortunately, I don’t have to rely on tithes and offerings given to Servias Ministries.  My wife and I give into the ministry ourselves thus I have no pressure to water down the Word in this area.

Ministers will often skip the earlier verses in Malachi 3:

3 Behold, I send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me. And the Lord [the Messiah], Whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; the Messenger or Angel of the covenant, Whom you desire, behold, He shall come, says the Lord of hosts.

2 But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap;

3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in righteousness.

4 Then will the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in ancient years.

5 Then I will draw near to you for judgment; I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against the false swearers, and against those who oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, and who turn aside the temporary resident from his right and fear not Me, says the Lord of hosts.

6 For I am the Lord, I do not change; that is why you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.

When you give tithes, you become connected with those who are being purified so that they may offer to THE LORD offerings in righteousness.  These writings are intended to move the Sons and Daughters to that very state of righteousness.  As a result, we all will walk in the “fear of THE LORD”.  Those who don’t walk in this “fear of THE LORD” will at best be observers rather than partakers of the Divine Nature.

I have seen people’s wealth evaporate in days and weeks.  What they trusted in was lost and left them in dire straits.  Let us not be counted among them for Our Heavenly Father set our provision in Heaven before HE formed each of us in the womb.  Let us place our trust in Heavenly treasures rather than earthly treasures that are at best temporary in nature. 

Tithing requires us to trust in FATHER’S Word and act based on that trust.  If there is unbelief in your heart, you are not ready to give.  Seek FATHER first and hear The Holy Spirit before you give.  Don’t let man persuade you to give.  Don’t just mentally agree to give attempting to satisfy the Word while you are still in unbelief.  Let The Holy Spirit guide you in giving. 

The Tithe

January 12th, 2020

FATHER is the same yesterday, today, and forever… as is HIS Divine Intent.  The tithe has been a topic covered by many ministries over the years and I must say that I have heard most of their opinions and doctrines concerning the topic.  Facts have been slanted to fit the understanding and intent of the minister.  If his or her church or ministry has a huge overhead, they will convince the people they need to tithe to them.  Jesus had very little overhead in His ministry.  There were no huge buildings or utility bills to deal with.  So the question must be asked, why tithe?

It is FATHER’S Divine Intent for me to tithe so that my actions support my words and intent which reflect the Truth in my life that FATHER is my complete source.  HE deserves the firstfruits of all that I produce because I am HIS!

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Genesis chapter 14:

18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. 19 And he blessed him and said:

​​“Blessed be Abram of God Most High,

​​Possessor of heaven and earth;

20 ​​And blessed be God Most High,

​​Who has delivered your enemies into your hand.”

​And he gave him a tithe of all.

21 Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself.”

22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth, 23 that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, ‘I have made Abram rich’— 24 except only what the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.”

15:1 After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.

Is is important to note that Abraham tithed before FATHER established the covenant which changed Abram’s name to Abraham resulting in Abraham experiencing a change in nature.  Abram acknowledged the Truth that GOD MOST HIGH was his provision and stated so to the king of Sodom who represented the adversary.

Abram further acknowledged that FATHER is the Possessor of Heaven AND earth.  Doesn’t this mean that everyone and everything is ultimately HIS to do with whatever HE pleases?  None of us are independent of FATHER’S dominion.

I have heard that the tithe was focused on what the “land” brought forth and not our own labor.  Was the labor required to work the land?  If so, then I guess one should discount the tithe by assessing how much labor it took to work the land and tend the sheep?  The soul will analyze the tithe and support reasons to reduce or eliminate the tithe without regard to FATHER’S Intent.

The tithe is a firstfruit of our life and represents a sacrifice honoring Our Heavenly Father not only as our provider but the tithe establishes ownership.  This ownership leads us to Holiness as we establish and reinforce our relationship by giving the tithe.  The tithe connects the physical with the Spiritual.

Was Abram reluctant in his giving of the tithe?  Would you tithe if you knew as a result that FATHER would have a higher covenant with you?  Does the tithe establish or confirm a higher level of trust between you and FATHER?

Did Abram concern himself with what Melchizedek’s use of the tithe?  Not in the least.  What Melchizedek did with the tithe was between him and FATHER.  Our responsibility is to give to a recipient as The Holy Spirit directs and not be coerced to give through guilt or perceived duty.

Giving is all about intent.  If you intend to give with a cheerful heart then your tithe and offerings are fully acceptable.  If you give out of perceived duty, then you will not receive the same benefit.

Abram of God Most High” denotes ownership of Abram to GOD MOST HIGH.  Further, it is acknowledged that OUR God Most High delivered his enemies into his hand.  Abram’s success was based on FATHER’S intervention and not Abram’s physical resources.

Do you want FATHER to be your Deliverer from your enemies or do you want to go it alone?  As for me and my family, we choose to acknowledge HIS ownership and one way to affirm this Truth is to give the firstfruits of all our increase.  I am not looking for a “legal” loophole to reduce my giving.  On the contrary, I desire to increase it as HE increases my harvest.  It’s a win/win for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

If you disagree, no worries.  My purpose is to share with you what is working in my life and has for decades.  This is what Agape Love does.  I don’t want to see any of us living a life of scarcity when there is a solution to the problem.

Our Effectiveness

January 11th, 2020

Your effectiveness is based on the revelation of The Word of GOD, not just reading it, memorizing it, or quoting it 500 times.  We are meant to understand The Word from FATHER’S point of view of Agape Love, also known as HIS Divine Intent.  That is the only “point of view” that matters because it is the Absolute Truth and HE backs up HIS Word and Divine Intent 100% of the time.  Our mandate is to seek the revelation and be a doer of The Word.

Why spend precious time in areas of study that don’t matter?  Is what your spending time on furthering The Gospel and establishing The Kingdom on earth?  If not, repent and focus on what really matters beyond the temporary nature of this world.  It is time to be fully relevant in what FATHER is doing on earth today… Now is the time.

The Holy Spirit recorded in Psalm 139:

16 You saw who you created me to be before I became me!

Before I’d ever seen the light of day,

the number of days you planned for me

were already recorded in your book.

How many of your days were planned and recorded by FATHER?  All of them!  Do you think HE omitted anything in HIS plan?  HE thought about you before you existed.  HIS thought created you and the plan for your life.  Your responsibility is to seek HIM out and synchronize with your plan.  Since FATHER gave you a free will, you can take another path and not fulfill your book.  As for me, I plan to totally fulfill FATHER’S Divine Intent.  As I pray in THE SPIRIT, my future found in my book is further revealed.

HE did not make a plan without accounting for the resources required to fulfill that plan.  HE is not forgetful so the only way those resources will not manifest in your life will be due to your unbelief in HIS plan.  You are not an accident or an unintended consequence of your earthly parents.  You are meant to be here at this time in history and reading this blog.  It’s all part of the plan so you and I need to quit limiting FATHER in any area of our lives.  Become passionate to fulfill ALL of HIS Will contained in your specific book.  Your angels are waiting to do HIS Will in your life by assisting you in whatever manner is required by your book.

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in chapter 21:

1 And He (Jesus) looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, 2 and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. 3 So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; 4 for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.”

Did Jesus have Judas run after the widow and give out of the treasury?  Did Jesus go and minister to her by multiplying some bread and fishes?  No, on both counts.  The widow would receive her blessing from FATHER and HE would provide for her.  The widow operated in faith and that faith would be acknowledged and rewarded by FATHER.  Jesus was not impressed by the rich who gave a little out of their abundance for anybody can do that.  Would Jesus be impressed with your giving into The Kingdom?  Let The Holy Spirit minister to you in this area.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2 Timothy chapter 3:

1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Those who have a form of godliness buy deny its power will not be chosen to establish The Kingdom.  In order to walk in the power, we must walk in the revelation of The Word and implement it in our walk, without exception.  Those who walk in the knowledge of the Absolute Truth will have all of Heaven’s resources available to them in every situation.  Jesus confirmed this when He said we would do greater things than Him.  Isn’t it time for each of us to take responsibility for what HIS Word says in all areas?  The immature will find ways to debate the Intent in order to justify their inaction and they will be known as lukewarm at best.

Jesus spoke a very important Truth in Mark chapter 9:

23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

Your true level of “believing” is tested by your willingness to give and it is based on your ability to give.  The wealthy are typically the most unwillingly to give a notable percentage of their wealth whereas most of us have less difficulty.  The rich young ruler is a great example found in the Gospels.  The wealthy views their wealth as their “supply” instead of trusting Our Heavenly Father’s unlimited supply.  As a result, the rich young man walks away sorrowful and departs from Jesus.

Are you motivated by fear or by revelation?

The Greed Issue

January 10th, 2020

Some believers will miss their day of visitation from Our Lord Jesus Christ.  FATHER has been preparing us for some time as HE kept telling me In THE SPIRIT, “Now is the time!”

Idol worship must be removed from the midst of those who have ears to hear.  Paul wrote 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.

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?

FATHER is leading me to write in the coming days about Kingdom finances and some who read these writings will be offended because this issue is among the most subtle idols believers must deal with in their walk.  The adversary uses deception to convince believers that FATHER will not provide the needed resources they need to live their daily lives.  I can personally attest that this is false.

I’m not apologetic for what will be written in the coming days because it is time that we accept ALL of The Word rather than just those sections which appeal to our soul.  In the past, I simply preferred to fund the Gospel without any outside assistance because my faith was and is sufficient to believe in FATHER’S provision for what I am called to do.  It was easier for me to believe than to expect others to walk in the same revelation and join me in bringing forth the Kingdom.  Am I special or superior?  Not in the least, I simply took FATHER at HIS Word and did not try to analyze away the revelation contained in those Scriptures which deal specifically with finances.

FATHER’S perspective is not your perspective.  The question is “Whose perspective are you going to accept?”  Are you appealing to the flesh or submitting to The Holy Spirit?  Did I have to cast down fear, uncertainty, and doubt when FATHER told me to give a substantial amount to those in need?  Absolutely!  However, HE told me to give, not some preacher compelling me to give out of duty or guilt.  FATHER Loves a cheerful and willing giver.  FATHER will tell you what to give and to whom.  HE is looking for people who trust HIM and that trust will only occur when you do what HE has instructed, without hesitation.

There is no money in Heaven and there is a sufficient supply here on earth.  We simply need to access the funds for HIS purposes.  Do you really think the wealth of this world is off limits to FATHER WHO established value in the first place?

Evil must be dealt with once and for all.  Greed is the root of all evil and Satan used this very thing when he enticed Eve to eat of the tree which was reserved by FATHER.

We are no longer victims of the world’s intent to enslave us by keeping us in the “scarcity” mode.  The adversary wants you to believe you are limited yet Jesus proclaimed you and I would do greater things.  Who are you going to listen to and place your trust?  You must renew your mind when it comes to the flow of finances in your life and not allow the adversary to limit the flow FATHER intends for your life.

You don’t have to twist FATHER’S arm to get HIM to send resources in your direction.  You must deal with yourself in the area of unbelief and the importance of your words.  Your unbelief must be dealt with in order to access the resources meant for your stewardship.

Hope is a desire of some good, accompanied with at least a slight expectation of obtaining it, or a belief that it is obtainable.  Faith expects the manifestation to come, without a doubt.  Faith believes FATHER’S Word and that it will come to pass in your life.  It has dealt with and cast down fear, uncertainty, and doubt because your mind has been renewed and aligns itself with The Word rather than the world.

Do you think the manifested Sons and Daughters of GOD are required to fulfill FATHER’S Will without the resources needed to minister?  Jesus didn’t send the multitudes away hungry?  Jesus paid the tax requested of Him.  Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob weren’t broke.  We need to quit looking for ways to abstain from giving.  Men make a major deal out of tithing as though the money meant for the tithe is off limits to FATHER when HE requests you to send it to someone who is ministering the Gospel.  We need to quit looking for ways around giving so those resources can be hoarded out of fear.  Quit looking for perceived loopholes when you should be focused on FATHER’S Divine Intent of Love when it comes to finances.  What father among you, if his son asks for a loaf of bread, will give him a stone; or if he asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent?  How much more will Our Heavenly Father provide for us!

The Holy Spirit wrote in Psalm 5:

12 Lord, how wonderfully you bless the righteous.

Your favor wraps around each one and covers them

under your canopy of kindness and joy.

Do you really believe?  You have gifts given specifically to you by FATHER and those gifts need to be in full operation.  If you are sitting on the sidelines because you don’t have the necessary funds, maybe it is time to plant some seed.  Every seed produces after its own kind and is meant to multiply in order to be a blessing for the one who sows.

I am not forcing or compelling you to give but I am explaining the Kingdom economy here on earth so that you can benefit from operating according to Kingdom principles.  You can sit in front of your computer, tablet, or phone and reject this writing and no one will be the wiser… accept FATHER.

Don’t shoot me, I’m just the messenger.
