Another Testimony

Saturday, October 16th, 2021

From the counselor:

We noticed another student in need of shoes while at Camp Classen (local children’s camp), so we had a parent bring a pair from the closet.  This pair of shoes allowed the child to safely climb Mt. Warren while at camp!  He loves his new shoes!!  Thank you so much!

I have instructed the counselors:

Anytime you provide a student with new shoes, I suggest giving him or her two pairs of shoes.  We want them to move beyond  the “barely getting by” mentality.
Thanks for your close attention to the needs of the students.

Cooperating With The Holy Spirit

Friday, October 15th, 2021

The Holy Spirit will show you of what is to come as you fulfill the book written about you and as you cooperate with Him.  He is your Intercessor to FATHER!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

18 I am convinced that any suffering we endure is less than nothing compared to the magnitude of glory that is about to be unveiled within us. 19 The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters! 20 For against its will the universe itself has had to endure the empty futility resulting from the consequences of human sin. But now, with eager expectation, 21 all creation longs for freedom from its slavery to decay and to experience with us the wonderful freedom coming to God’s children. 22 To this day we are aware of the universal agony and groaning of creation, as if it were in the contractions of labor for childbirth.

Every living thing desires for the Sons and Daughters of GOD to be manifested.  Why would we initiate or cause delay in any fashion?  Doesn’t Love want to fulfill the desires of the heart?  Love promotes action to the expected end and so we should each do our part in satisfying the yearnings of all creation.

23 And it’s not just creation. We who have already experienced the firstfruits of the Spirit also inwardly groan as we passionately long to experience our full status as God’s sons and daughters—including our physical bodies being transformed. 24 For this is the hope of our salvation.

But hope means that we must trust and wait for what is still unseen. For why would we need to hope for something we already have? 25 So because our hope is set on what is yet to be seen, we patiently keep on waiting for its fulfillment.

What is on your “A” list?  Shouldn’t our bodies being transformed be on that list?  That coming reality isn’t just meant for me alone but to satisfy the longing of all our brothers and sisters.  The key to this manifestation is The Holy Spirit!

26 And in a similar way, the Holy Spirit takes hold of us in our human frailty to empower us in our weakness. For example, at times we don’t even know how to pray, or know the best things to ask for. But the Holy Spirit rises up within us to super-intercede on our behalf, pleading to God with emotional sighs too deep for words.

The Holy Spirit is actively working with those who are in full cooperation with Him.  I purpose to allow no hindrance to come forth in my relationship with The Holy Spirit and His commitment to super-intercede on my behalf.

27 God, the Searcher of the heart, knows fully our longings, yet He also understands the desires of the Spirit, because the Holy Spirit passionately pleads before God for us, His Holy ones, in perfect harmony with God’s plan and our destiny.

Our books which were written before we were formed in the womb ( Psalm 139:16), contain what are righteous desires with God’s plan and our destiny.  As I allow The Holy Spirit unfettered access to my mouth and thoughts, I move into perfect harmony with FATHER’S plan.

28 So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together for good, for we are His Lovers who have been called to fulfill His designed purpose. 29 For He knew all about us before we were born and He destined us from the beginning to share the likeness of His Son. This means the Son is the oldest among a vast family of brothers and sisters who will become just like Him.

30 Having determined our destiny ahead of time, He called us to Himself and transferred His perfect righteousness to everyone He called. And those who possess His perfect righteousness He co-glorified with His Son!

The Holy Spirit’s mandate is to move us into the fulfillment of the above mystery revealed to Paul and further revealed to those who have eyes to see.  Now is the time to be in full cooperation with The Holy Spirit!

Eliminate Attempts Of Seduction In Your Life

Thursday, October 14th, 2021

Demons will attempt to seduce you in the areas of your weakness.  This is why we must discover those weaknesses and focus on turning those weaknesses into our strengths and resist the devil.  The Holy Spirit will show you those weaknesses.

John wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st John chapter 2:

22 Who is the real liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ. He is the real antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever rejects the Son rejects the Father. Whoever embraces the Son embraces the Father also. 24 So you must be sure to keep the message burning in your hearts; that is, the message of life you heard from the beginning. If you do, you will always be living in close fellowship with the Son and with the Father. 25 And He Himself has promised us the never-ending life of the ages to come!

26 I’ve written these things about those who are attempting to lead you astray (by seducing you). 27 But the wonderful anointing you have received from God is so much greater than their deception and now lives in you. There’s no need for anyone to keep teaching you. His anointing teaches you all that you need to know, for it will lead you into Truth, not a counterfeit. So just as the anointing has taught you, remain in Him.

Jesus walked in the authority of FATHER and that is why He was not limited in His ministry of healing and restoration.  Jesus would not allow the devil to seduce Him in the wilderness thus He did not allow the adversary to diminish His authority on earth as “the son of man”.  The devil wanted Jesus to react as “the Son of GOD” which would have disqualified Him from being our Redeemer.  Jesus had to be tempted in every area as the son of man so that He could qualify as the spotless lamb.

Demons will try to insert thoughts to see if we will react.  If we do, they will pursue seduction in that area.  If we don’t, they will try another area.  Jesus did not react to the devil during His temptation thus the adversary could not find a weakness to exploit.  He left once no weakness was found.

Those demons will minister to your soul and/or your flesh in order to weaken your spirit.  This is often done through music and other forms of entertainment.  News feeds are used to do the same thing.  They are meant to incite you to injustices and get you to react in a soulish manner.  It’s all about entrapping you into walking according to the flesh.

Jesus prayed on our behalf in John chapter 17:

20 “And I ask not only for these disciples,

    but also for all those who will one day

    believe in Me through their message.

21 I pray for them all to be joined together as one

    even as You and I, Father, are joined together as One.

    I pray for them to become One with Us

    so that the world will recognize that you sent me.

22 For the very glory You have given to Me I have given them

    so that they will be joined together as one

    and experience the same unity that We enjoy.

23 You live fully in Me and now I live fully in them

    so that they will experience perfect unity,

    and the world will be convinced that you have sent me,

    for they will see that You Love each one of them

    with the same passionate Love that You have for Me.

24 “Father, I ask that You allow everyone that You have given to Me

    to be with Me where I am!

    Then they will see My full glory—

    the very splendor You have placed upon Me

    because You have Loved Me even before the beginning of time.

25 “You are My righteous Father,

    but the unbelieving world has never known You

    in the perfect way that I know You!

    And all those who believe in Me

    also know that You have sent Me!

26 I have revealed to them who You are

    and I will continue to make You even more real to them,

    so that they may experience the same endless Love

    that You have for Me,

    for Your Love will now live in them, even as I live in them!”

Jesus prayed that we would be restored back to the time prior to Adam, before the beginning of time.  When we fully embrace and walk in FATHER’S endless Love, we will walk in the same glory as Jesus, the full glory and all its splendor.  This glory is meant to be on display and as an advertisement to a dying world.  This glory allows us to do greater works once we walk in the revelation of Jesus’ prayer above.

With this revelation, you can no longer be seduced in any area!  All deception of the adversary is readily seen for what it is and those demons will depart from you and will look for weaker vessels.  We are to overcome all attempts to seduce us.  As we move into the fullness of Agape Love and unity, no weakness will be found in us and we will by fully led by THE SPIRIT.

Resolving Genetic Issues

Wednesday, October 13th, 2021

Understanding the importance of Blood Lines (genealogy) will help us understand FATHER’S plan with respect to the remnant and what the adversary is attempting to do among the believers.

The adversary and his minions want to enforce the curses we allow in our lives due to sins we have committed.  However, The Holy Spirit is the Enforcer of The Covenant FATHER has established with us.  This Covenant supersedes any and all curses because the Blood of Jesus has sufficiently dealt with all sin and sickness thus allowing past sins to be expunged.  Our slates are clean!

Demons enforce acts of sin which can impact our genetics.  Moses recorded by THE SPIRIT in Exodus chapter 34:

5 Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with Moses there, and proclaimed the Name of the LORD. 6 And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and Truth, 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

8 So Moses made haste and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped. 9 Then he said, “If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your inheritance.”

Moses interceded for the iniquity and sin of the people right after GOD said that HE would not clear the guilty of their sins.  The iniquity of the fathers would be a curse to the fourth generation and flow through their genetics.  Moses’ intercession was only temporary by nature and the children of Israel failed to walk according to FATHER’S directives.

Jesus’ Blood has completely overcome these curses and our genetics have been corrected by The Blood of Jesus.  This is why demons don’t want The Blood to be taught!  They want those curses to flow to the fourth generation.

The Holy Spirit ends the curse because He enforces blessings and life.  He is the Enforcer of The Covenant as 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.

Any weakness in our genetics has been dealt with as we appropriate healing which has been deposited on the inside of us as Paul wrote in Ephesians chapter 1.  If genetics can be altered by sin, then the genes can be restored to their original intent by the power of The Blood enforced by The Holy Spirit. 

This understanding is critical to those who have been subjected to gene-altering drugs.  Without this understanding and revelation, those who have submitted themselves to such drugs will suffer under the curse of the altered genetics.

The adversary will use any means possible to alter our genetics.  This is what was done prior to the flood and genetic modification, if left in the modified state, will disqualify you from walking in the Image of GOD.  This is why only eight souls were spared.  Their genetics remained pure and intact.  No one else met the genetic criteria.  Genetically modified animals were not allowed on the ark either.

The authority of The Kingdom is greater than the authority of the adversary.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 2:

2 And His fullness fills you, even though you were once like corpses, dead in your sins and offenses. 2 It wasn’t that long ago that you lived in the religion, customs, and values of this world, obeying the dark ruler of the earthly realm who fills the atmosphere with his authority, and works diligently in the hearts of those who are disobedient to the Truth of God. 3 The corruption that was in us from birth was expressed through the deeds and desires of our self-life. We lived by whatever natural cravings and thoughts our minds dictated, living as rebellious children subject to God’s wrath like everyone else.

4 But God still loved us with such great Love. He is so rich in compassion and mercy. 5 Even when we were dead and doomed in our many sins, He united us into the very life of Christ and saved us by His wonderful grace! 6 He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with Him into the glorious perfection and authority of the Heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!

Altered genetics is not permanent for those who are co-seated with Christ.  If you have received “the jab”, don’t fret.  Command healing of your genes and blood to come forth and appropriate that healing in your body.  FATHER knew this day would come and accounted for it when HE formed you in the womb.  Fear not!

Complete Joy

Tuesday, October 12th, 2021

My writings are intended to assist you to a deeper relationship with FATHER, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit, resulting in your joy being full.  Understanding and embracing FATHER’S Love for us is the key to complete joy.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 16:

23 “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. 24 Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.”

Why did Jesus want our joy to be full?  There are two primary reasons:

-To show the world that Our Heavenly Father is a Good GOD.

-To show and confirm to us that HIS Agape Love is quick to give us the desires of our hearts.  HE is not reluctant to bless us when we ask in righteousness.

FATHER only responds in this manner to HIS children.  Joy is one of the fruit of THE SPIRIT and is reserved for those who have HIS SPIRIT.

The Word is our manual for life.  How well you know your manual will determine the level of life you will walk in.  This is why it is so important to renew our minds daily and focus on The Word rather than men’s narratives.  We should become passionate to excel in walking according to our manual.

Those who hesitate to ask FATHER for the desires of their hearts do not have the full revelation of Agape Love.  Since GOD is Love, once you truly understand HIS infinite Love for us, you will be able to fully receive from HIM in all areas.  This requires us to be perfected in Love.  I believe this was a fundamental reason FATHER had me set up Servias Ministries in the first place.

The Beloved Disciple understood this Truth when he wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st John chapter 2:

3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His Word, truly the Love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

And in chapter 4:

12 No one has seen God at any time. If we Love one another, God abides in us, and His Love has been perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.

17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

The fullness of joy is attained as we become mature in the revelation of Agape Love.  Jesus is full of joy and we should be as well.  Perfect Love casts out fear so as we walk in Agape Love, any hindrances to our joy are removed.  If we had some deep-seated fear that FATHER didn’t fully Love us because of some past sin, that fear is totally removed when we truly see FATHER as HE is, the GOD of Love.

Growing In Favor

Monday, October 11th, 2021

My writings are intended to assist you into a deeper relationship with FATHER, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit, resulting in you walking in favor and becoming a “history maker”.

The word relationship denotes two who can and do relate with each other.  FATHER chose to relate with you and me as HE wrote our books and formed us in the womb.  Additionally, HE provided us with perfect restoration through the Blood of Jesus.  He bought us at a price and we are His thus He left nothing to chance.

Moses recorded by The Holy Spirit in Deuteronomy chapter 30:

15 “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, 16 in that I command you today to Love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the LORD your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.

17 But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, 18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess.

19 I call Heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may Love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”

FATHER has not changed HIS mind concerning HIS covenant of Love.  HIS favor is meant to flow through us to others.  HIS favor will cause others to become fully hardened or fully soft.  We will be able to discern the difference and our relationships with others will change once we discern the results.

Some people will be jealous or envious of your favor whereas others will say “If he can walk in FATHER’S favor, so can I.”  They will then begin to change so that they can walk in a similar manner that produces good fruit in the area of favor.

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in Luke chapter 2:

41 Every year Jesus’ parents went to worship at Jerusalem during the Passover festival. 42 When Jesus turned twelve, His parents took Him to Jerusalem to observe the Passover, as was their custom. 43 A full day after they began their journey home, Joseph and Mary realized that Jesus was missing. 44 They had assumed He was somewhere in their entourage, but He was nowhere to be found. After a frantic search among relatives and friends, 45 Mary and Joseph returned to Jerusalem to search for him.

46 After being separated from Him for three days, they finally found Him in the temple, sitting among the Jewish teachers, listening to them and asking probing questions. 47 All who heard Jesus speak were awestruck at His intelligent understanding of all that was being discussed and at His wise answers to their questions.

48 His parents were shocked to find Him there, and Mary scolded him, saying, “Son, Your father and I have searched for You everywhere! We have been worried sick over not finding You. Why would You do this to us?”

49 Jesus said to them, “Why would you need to search for Me? Didn’t you know that it was necessary for Me to be here in My Father’s house, consumed with Him?” (He was about His Father’s business)

50 Mary and Joseph didn’t fully understand what Jesus meant.

51 Jesus went back home with them to Nazareth and was obedient to them. His mother] treasured Jesus’ words deeply in her heart. 52 As Jesus grew, so did His Wisdom and maturity. The favor of men increased upon His life, for He was greatly Loved by God.

You and I are also to be about FATHER’S business thus allowing the favor of men to increase upon our lives.  We too are greatly Loved by FATHER!

Never Give Up!

Sunday, October 10th, 2021

My writings are intended to assist you to a deeper relationship with FATHER, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit, resulting in you becoming a “history maker”.

My goal is to teach you how to operate in the end times and be blessed by FATHER as you navigate through these times.  I don’t listen to bad reports or people who want to mock me.  In fact, we have vehicle license plates stating “In God we trust”.  There is no question who I trust as I live in this broken world. I am not concerned what other people think.

FATHER’S desire is for you and I to embrace any and all changes and corrections required to enable us to come into full maturity.  As we receive greater revelation of the mysteries contained in HIS Word, we must embrace change rather than hold onto past, partial understanding of what certain Scriptures are communicating.  If past understanding has produced no fruit, accept the fact and move on to true revelation that does produce fruit.  Be pragmatic concerning this reality and don’t let your soul convince you to remain at a lower level of maturity. 

As for me in my early years, I placed way too much emphasis on the teacher’s understanding rather than placing my focus on the Scriptures being referenced.  This was my mistake but thankfully FATHER’S great grace and mercy prevailed in my life and HE provided my with “course corrections”.

My word to you, never give up but focus on what THE LORD has put inside of you by focusing on your book revealed in Psalm 139:16:

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.

17–18 Every single moment You are thinking of me!

    How precious and wonderful to consider

    that You cherish me constantly in Your every thought!

    O God, Your desires toward me are more

    than the grains of sand on every shore!

    When I awake each morning, You’re still with me.

I don’t give up just because of a bad report!  Millions of Israelites died in the wilderness because they embraced the bad report of then spies.  Only Joshua and Caleb entered into the Promised Land from that generation.  The remnant of two did not give up, neither should we.

Concerning Joshua, Moses recorded by The Holy Spirit in Exodus chapter 33:

7 Moses took his tent and pitched it outside the camp, far from the camp, and called it the tabernacle of meeting. And it came to pass that everyone who sought the LORD went out to the tabernacle of meeting which was outside the camp. 8 So it was, whenever Moses went out to the tabernacle, that all the people rose, and each man stood at his tent door and watched Moses until he had gone into the tabernacle. 9 And it came to pass, when Moses entered the tabernacle, that the pillar of cloud descended and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the LORD talked with Moses. 10 All the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the tabernacle door, and all the people rose and worshiped, each man in his tent door. 11 So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.

Joshua kept himself in a position to hear from THE LORD daily unlike all those who were judged because of their unbelief.  As I enter the tabernacle of HIS presence as expressed in Psalm 91, I place myself in a position to hear and mature.  It is vital to enter into the Secret Place daily:

9–10 When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High,

    our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm.

    How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us?

11 God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go,

    defending you from all harm.

12 If you walk into a trap, they’ll be there for you

    and keep you from stumbling.

13 You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness,

    trampling every one of them beneath your feet!

14 For here is what the Lord has spoken to me:

    “Because you loved Me, delighted in Me, and have been loyal to My name,

    I will greatly protect you.

15 I will answer your cry for help every time you pray,

    and you will feel My presence

    in your time of trouble.

    I will deliver you and bring you honor.

16 I will satisfy you with a full life and with all that I do for you.

    For you will enjoy the fullness of My salvation!”

Joshua had the revelation of the Secret Place and he was rewarded.  Let us embrace this revelation as well.  He never gave up during the forty year trek in the wilderness because he embraced the revelation he received from FATHER.

Never give up!

Don’t Be Moved By A Famine

Saturday, October 9th, 2021

My writings are intended to assist you to a deeper relationship with FATHER, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit, resulting in you becoming a “history maker”.

My goal is to teach you how to operate in the end times and be blessed by FATHER as you navigate through these times.  I threw away my CD’S and tapes on the various teachings on the Book of Revelations a long time ago.  None of their prophetic words came to pass.  They drew faulty conclusions based on their opinions versus true revelation.  Unsuspecting sheep such as myself, sent them money and unknowingly supported those false prophecies.  It is what it is!  Hopefully you will glean some revelation from my past mistakes.  Only FATHER knows when the return will occur and HE isn’t sharing it with anyone, including HIS Son Jesus.

FATHER’S desire is not for you to barely make it through this physical life.  HE intends for you to become an overcomer in all areas of your existence.  However, it is up to you to decide what areas you want to overcome.  The enemy would have you believe in failure so that you will not pursue success in any area.

Moses recorded by THE SPIRIT in Genesis chapter 26:

1 There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.

2 Then the LORD appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you. 3 Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. 4 And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; 5 because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”

12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him. 13 The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; 14 for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants. So the Philistines envied him.

15 Now the Philistines had stopped up all the wells which his father’s servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father, and they had filled them with earth. 16 And Abimelech said to Isaac, “Go away from us, for you are much mightier than we.”

17 Then Isaac departed from there and pitched his tent in the Valley of Gerar, and dwelt there. 18 And Isaac dug again the wells of water which they had dug in the days of Abraham his father, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham. He called them by the names which his father had called them.

19 Also Isaac’s servants dug in the valley, and found a well of running water there. 20 But the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac’s herdsmen, saying, “The water is ours.” So he called the name of the well Esek, because they quarreled with him. 21 Then they dug another well, and they quarreled over that one also. So he called its name Sitnah. 22 And he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So he called its name Rehoboth, because he said, “For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.”

23 Then he went up from there to Beersheba. 24 And the LORD appeared to him the same night and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham; do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for My servant Abraham’s sake.” 25 So he built an altar there and called on the name of the LORD, and he pitched his tent there; and there Isaac’s servants dug a well.

The famine in the land did not prevent Isaac from being blessed by FATHER.  In fact, he was envied by others who saw that he was becoming too powerful due to his success.  Isn’t our covenant more complete than Isaac’s?

Are we on the cusp of a famine orchestrated by the nefarious ones?  It does not matter if that is the case.  Famines don’t move FATHER in the least.  HE will establish HIS Kingdom on earth no matter what is transpiring here on earth.  HE always anticipates such events and challenges.  HIS Sons and Daughters are meant to tap into HIS blessings associated with HIS Covenant in order to minister life and fruitfulness for others to see and experience.  We are called to be testimonies of HIS Agape Love!

The Importance Of Words

Friday, October 8th, 2021

My Words are intended to deepen my relationship with FATHER, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit.

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

3 Faith empowers us to see that the universe was created and beautifully coordinated by the power of God’s Words! He spoke and the invisible realm gave birth to all that is seen.

In their purest form, words have power.  This is why Jesus cautioned us concerning idle words.  Instead of saying something meaningless, devious, misleading, or manipulative, we must speak Truth. By attempting to speak honestly, concisely, and helpfully, we learn to yield to the Holy Spirit within us.

I suggest you and I repent of our past idle words and wipe the slate clean.

Our destination is the presence of Jesus, guided by The Holy Spirit.  With this perspective in mind, let’s revisit a well-known passage.

Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 11:

20 Now in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21 And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.”

22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

The proverbial mountain is anything in your path hindering you from arriving at the destination of Jesus’ presence.  Nothing can stand in your way if you speak faith-filled words and address that “mountain”.

If we will fully yield to The Holy Spirit, He will instruct us concerning the mountain.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Corinthians chapter 14:

2 When someone speaks in tongues, no one understands a word he says, because he’s not speaking to people, but to God—he is speaking intimate mysteries in the Spirit. 3 But when someone prophesies, he speaks to encourage people, to build them up, and to bring them comfort. 4 The one who speaks in tongues advances his own spiritual progress.

The most important words I can currently utter are those in tongues.  I want to speak to FATHER those intimate mysteries and advance my spiritual progress so that I remain qualified to be a partaker (partner) of the Divine Nature.  I want to work with Jesus as a fully mature Son rather than possibly work against Him in some immature state.

The devil and his demons have no idea what I am speaking when I speak in an unknown tongue thus they are unable to anticipate and/or prepare for the next good thing I am called to do.

It is written 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 passionately seek Him.

FATHER has rewarded my wife and I because by faith, we continually seek HIM day in and day out.  We know that through our forty-nine years of marriage, HE has rewarded us because of the Truth stated above.  We have navigated through all the challenges placed before because HE has instructed us to take the proper path even though it looked much less inviting than the other paths before us.  Later, we saw the Wisdom of HIS path and the catastrophic aspects of some of the others.  This strengthened our trust IN HIM and we no longer consider other options.

In Malachi, there were two groups of people: one group spoke against FATHER and the other group submitted to HIM.  Their words revealed which group they were in.

In Malachi chapter 3, it is written concerning the first group:

13 ​​“Your words have been harsh (stout) against Me,”

​​Says the LORD,

​​“Yet you say,

​‘​What have we spoken against You?’

14 ​​You have said,

​‘​It is useless to serve God;

​​What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance,

​​And that we have walked as mourners

​​Before the LORD of hosts?

15 ​​So now we call the proud blessed,

​​For those who do wickedness are raised up;

​​They even tempt God and go free.’ ”

Now the 2nd group is spoken of:

​​Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another,

​​And the LORD listened and heard them;

​​So a book of remembrance was written before Him

​​For those who fear the LORD

​​And who meditate on His Name.

17 ​​“They shall be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts,

​​“On the day that I make them My jewels.

​​And I will spare them

​​As a man spares his own son who serves him.”

18 ​​Then you shall again discern

​​Between the righteous and the wicked,

​​Between one who serves God

​​And one who does not serve Him.

Your words and your actions (fruit) allow others to discern which group you are in because of fruit inspection.  What was the topic that caused the 1st group’s words to be stout against FATHER?  It was all about the tithe which was revealed to Abraham before The Law:

​​“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.

If your actions are contrary to your words, then your words will be judged to be idle words.  Faithless words without actions are dead and you will be judged accordingly. 

My wife and I give above the monthly tithe and FATHER rewards us according to where we seek to go rather than where we are at financially.  I am unwilling to withhold what is HIS and through my Love for HIM, I want to be seen as one of HIS cheerful givers.  Some who are immature try to manipulate FATHER in their giving whereas my wife and I want to show our unconditional Love toward HIM as we give into the Kingdom.  It is all about intent behind giving. 

It is my responsibility to you to share these Truths even though finances have always been a sensitive subject for many.  Giving into The Kingdom is no longer a sensitive topic for me since I know that I am now a jewel belonging to my FATHER.  This is where faith in action determines our level of fruitfulness on behalf of The Kingdom.

Giving And Words

Thursday, October 7th, 2021

I give out of my relationship with My Heavenly Father, never out of compulsion or coercion. My Words are intended to confirm my relationship with FATHER, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit.  Giving and my words go hand in hand in producing life in others.

I am HIS Son living on this earth and purpose to do HIS bidding in every area of my life.  I know that The Holy Spirit will instruct me to speak and act on His behalf if I am willing to submit to Him.  He will never force me to do anything for I have been given choice in all matters.  However, I choose to submit to The Holy Spirit.  This is what a mature Son or Daughter does.

Why did I choose this path?  I did so because Wisdom and understanding revealed His superiority in all areas of life affecting me.  I want the best for me and those whom I affect so why should I settle for less?

Those who agree with this path of Holiness should ask the question:  FATHER, what would you like for me to do today?  Shouldn’t we move away from our personal priorities to HIS?  This is what a mature Son or Daughter will arrive at in their mindset.  As Jesus spoke, “Not My will but Your will be done.”

Jesus spoke in John chapter 15:

5 “I am the sprouting vine and you’re My branches. As you live in union with Me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you—but when you live separated from Me you are powerless. 6 If a person is separated from Me, he is discarded; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire to be burned. 7 But if you live in life-union with Me and if My Words live powerfully within you—then you can ask whatever you desire and it will be done. 8 When your lives bear abundant fruit, you demonstrate that you are My mature disciples who glorify My Father!”

Watch your words.  It is better not to speak at all if you don’t have something good to say. Does Jesus’ Words life powerfully in us?  Do our idle words negatively impact that power by diluting our intent?

Wisdom recorded in Proverbs chapter 10:

19 ​​In the multitude of words sin is not lacking,

​​But he who restrains his lips is wise.

And in Proverbs chapter 17:

27 ​​He who has knowledge spares his words,

​​And a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.

28 ​​Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace;

​​When he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive.

Jesus wants us to speak our destination rather than simply speak idle words.  He is our destination and The Holy Spirit is our guide to our destination.  Our words should reinforce our path to our destination rather than cause us to stop our progress by those idle words.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 12:

33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Let us become vigilant in watching our words and purpose to speak only what The Holy Spirit instructs.  Jesus said that He only spoke what He heard FATHER say and those who attain full maturity will do the same.  Yes, both you and I can do this!
