THE NEVER ENDING BATTLE FOR FREEDOM

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

It’s tragic when our pastors are unaware of the very constitution this country abides by. America is bound and established by that constitution and states no government will make a law that infringes upon the free exercise of religion.

Some want to say religion must stay out of government. The constitution instead makes it clear government must stay out of the affairs of the church. When president Lyndon Baines Johnson tried to pull rank on the church, no one stood to address it. We gave up our podiums

.

The Black Robed Regiment

The podiums where the powerhouses of the revolution. They stated the truth about men’s character and about their place in political discourse. Fiery preachers spoke truth that other men feared! We must be rebaptized in Holy Fire! 🔥☄️

Today, is it the fear of a law or fear of a disease? Is God is using this lockdown to upend a weak and powerless church? Jesus dealt with the money changers by upending their businesses and so honoring His Father!

 

“My Father has called His house a house of prayer. You have made it a den of thieves!”

 

More than nice sounding words let us impact with words that result in power emanating and changing lives. Power like Peter, Paul and the disciples had ise videnced in speaking!

I yearn for the saints to get their courage and get their voice in pulpits and in everday matters. Surely,we must come out boldly as laid down, dead to self Sons and Daughters, and understand who He is in us!

PERCEIVING THE GLORY IN A BLADE OF GRASS

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Listen to the blog here!

 

I

If we were fully awake and fully sensible, looking at a single blade of grass would throw us into conniptions of wonder and spasms of worship. Some of us might weep and fall to the ground, overcome. Others might feel supercharged, invigorated, and wanting to jump and shout. But first our eyes must be opened!

As it is now most of us say, “Right, big deal, a blade of grass. So, what.” We are asleep to the glory of God all about us. We see the world only in dull and off-focused monochrome.

The whole earth is presently saturated with the glowing, reverberating glory of God. But it goes unnoticed. We need not conclude there is no glory to behold. We are immersed in glory, but not sensible to it.

 

 

Birds see colors we don’t. Eagles outdistance our vision. There is more glory about us than we know! Our lack of perception is the issue.

 

As kids we watched the Wizard of Oz. The movie starts in black and white and when the door is opened to Oz the scene is revealed in vibrant Technicolor!

 

 

We were the first family on the street with a color TV. Neighbor kids came over to watch the magic! Disney employed the same effect as the Wizard of Oz. The pixy would fly in front of the black and white castle, tap her wand and “Splash!” the castle was covered in color.

 

The effect is used even in more modern movies. In Beauty and the Beast the curse is
lifted, people are restored to their rightful state and the castle comes alive with
berightness and color.

 

We meet amazing angelic creatures in Ezekiel 10. Verse 12 says, “Their entire
bodies, including their backs, their hands and their wings, were completely full of
eyes, as were their four wheels.” Do you suppose those creatures might have more
perceptive abilities than we do? No wonder they worship God! They sing about it!

 

And one called out to another and said,
“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts,
The whole earth is full of His glory.”Isaiah 6:3

The world is darkened to His glory. Even we Christians who have gained windows into the glory see partially. But a Great Day of awakening is upon us where perceptiveness will shoot through the roof.

Habakkuk prophesied a day where the glory of the Lord will no longer be hidden. It will be perceived! “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” 

 

 

Next time you see a blade of grass find out how much of the magnificence of God is found drenching its structures! Wake up, world, and behold the glory! O, Lord, Open our eyes!

Let us know what you are perceiving of the glory of God!

EARTH’S CONSPIRACIES AND HEAVEN’S LAUGHTER

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

God gets a good laugh out of a conspiracy. So should we!

First of all, every “secret” plan of evil takes place before millions of watchful eyes. God and heaven’s assemblies see it all. Ultimately all cloak-and-dagger plots are revealed on earth as well.

Secondly, every plot to overthrow the Lord of Host and his plans are the smallest of potatoes. Jesus said, “If I cast out demons by the finger of God then know the Kingdom has come near you.” Those big bad demons Jesus portrays as tiny bugs on his sleeve, which he flicks off with a Mighty Finger. Heaven rumbles with laughter and evil is set a-trembling!

The One enthroned in heaven laughs; 

the Lord taunts them.

Then He rebukes them in His anger, 

and terrifies them in His fury:

 “I have installed My King on Zion, 

upon My holy mountain.”   Psalm 2:4-6

Every Good Thriller must have a Conspiracy

Who would read a thriller novel without a conspiracy? The Bible contains lots of thriller conspiracy stories. There were plenty of conspiracies going on in Isaiah’s day. They talked about them in the corners and on social media.

Don’t call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy. Don’t fear what they fear, and don’t be terrified.  Isaiah 8:12

There are loads of modern conspiracies. Yes, you bet’cha!! In fact, I think we could spend every moment ferreting them out: Political schemes, religious seditions, treacherous nations, mad-scientist chemical companies, social engineers, historical revisionists, cartoon producers – and don’t forget that sinister neighbor. But would you have time left to spend in adoration of God and pursuing His high purposes?

I think Isaiah would counsel; Sure there are conspiracies, but don’t see them the way the world does, and most certainly, don’t be afraid or terrified. Fear is so unbefitting a child of God. Laughter is more becoming!  

Balancing our attitudes about intrigues 

Sometimes the uncovering of a conspiracy can save the day, even a nation. Thank God, Benedict Arnold’s treachery was revealed. The revolution might have been lost! If you have a special calling to search out conspiracies then blessings on you! Perhaps you will save the day. The dominant temptation when searching out conspiracies is being seduced from of our Grand Mission.

How Jesus dealt with conspiracy

There are a dozen references to death plots against the Lord Jesus in the gospels. He knew the plots, yet you never hear Jesus say, “Poor me, everyone is out to kill me.” Jesus was focused! He lead the ranks on the last march to Jerusalem!

“As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. Luke 9:51.

They were on their way up to Jerusalem, with Jesus leading the way, and the disciples were astonished, while those who followed were afraid. Again, he took the Twelve aside and told them what was going to happen to him.  Mark 10:32

Don’t slow down!

Conspiracies did not slow Jesus down! They should not slow us. Like Jesus on his way to Jerusalem, our steps should be more certain and emphatic! 

One of our favorite conspiracies is about the anti-Christ. When people mention the anti-Christ I reply, “It’s not my responsibility to make sure the anti-Christ does his job. He’s on his own. If he makes a mess of it that’s his problem.”

Join our Conspiracy!

Won’t you join our conspiracy? Actually, it is an ancient scheme to redeem mankind and the fallen world. Heaven’s conspiracy motivated Jesus to go to the cross. It is motivating people to travel to the nations and even talk to their next-door neighbors. It is a conspiracy to overcome darkness with light. It’s not like most “Hush, Hush”conspiracies. It’s a shout-it-from-the-housetops conspiracy. It’s light and life in Jesus Christ the risen and transcendent Son of God!

May all the bad-guy conspiracies be uncovered and thwarted. Don’t miss your opportunity with God to laugh in the process. Rejoice in Father’s power to flick off the bugs! Then let’s  resolutely get on with Kingdom Business, preparing a most Royal Welcome! Back to constructing The Landing Strip!

How will you be responding to the next conspiracy you hear? We welcome your feedback!

THE DAWN OF A NEW CHEMISTRY WITH GOD

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

“…then you will understand the fear of the LORD

and find the knowledge of God.”  Prov 2:5

A NIGHT MESSAGE

Last night in a dream I was in a restaurant with a man who was a distinguished chemist. Other scientists were joining us for a secret meeting. Amazing things were being discovered, creating awe. The man I was with pointed to another man entering  the room. He was extremely impressed with him as an astounding chemist. He said, “His name is actually Johnathan Dawntheus.”

Demitri Medeleev Father of the Periodic Table

INTERPRETING THE DREAM

Jonathan Dawntheus could be translated, YAHWEH HAS GIVEN THE DAWN OF A [RENEWED] KNOWLEDGE OF GOD TO US!

Incredible spiritual chemistry is being revealed! We use an expression; “There is a chemistry between them.” This is the chemistry between God and His people. We are beginning to see God as he really is through Biblical revelation and Spiritual experience! God is revealing Himself with relational chemistry breakthroughs.

FROM PARTIAL TO COMPLETE

Our knowledge of God has been fragmentary and dim. Now that is changing! We will nolong be partial and see through a distorted mirror. Face to face is coming with a new dawn! This is spiritual awakening.

As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.   Psalm 17:15

I’ve often prayed, “Dear God, let me know you as you really are, and not simply as I have conceived you!” Of course, we have no business trying to conceive God. He is the One who conceived us! Our Father is downloading, to those who seek him, the full disclosure of His face.

ARE YOU SENSING LIGHT ON THE HORIZON?

Recently the birds have been chirping at 5:15. They know the dawn is coming! We also are chirping in anticipation! Early in the morning, before the sun comes up, we may go to the tomb of our old theology and find a living Christ!

AREN’T YOU ANXIOUS FOR THE DAY!

“I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.”  Psalm 130:6

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO WAKE THE DAWN!

Awake, harp and lyre!

I will awaken the dawn. Psalm 108:2

Let your chirping be heard!

COORDINATING HUMILITY AND BOLDNESS

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

TEACHING WATER SKIING

I used to teach people to water ski.  Skiing is very doable for the person with average strength. What messes people up is getting things coordinated. Here is the formula:

Keep your skis together

Knees bent

Back straight and head up

Arm’s straight

Hold tight, and let the boat pull you up.

Find your equilibrium

Getting those elements in coordination is the challenge. I see the same principle of coordination in our Christian experience. Many have a challenging time coordinating the Christian virtues. Take for example, Humility and Boldness.

GETTING THE WOBBLE OUT OF HUMILITY AND BOLDNESS

We have no problem finding Bible verses on either humility or boldness. But we fumble integrating them. Humility and boldness are not in opposition. Wobbly ideas of humility and boldness lead to wobbly harmonizing.

Humility is not thinking of ourselves as small. It is seeing God as BIG! Boldness is not being cocky, but acting on truth with resolve.

JESUS’ CALLS TO ACTION ANSWERED WITH FALSE HUMILITY

When Jesus calls us to be His witnesses to the ends of the earth, we cannot answer, “I’m much too humble to be a witness.” To be humble does not mean to put your lamp under a basket when the Lord tells you to lift it up!

Jesus charges us “Let your light shine before men so they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Shall we answer, “O Jesus, I’m much to humble to do that?”  Our failure to witness boldly may be defiant pride towards God and His will.

SEEING OUR PRESIDENT AS HUMBLE?

This may sound strange but I am seeing President Trump as a very humble man. I’m sure you could site one of his many statements to prove he is arrogant and self-absorbed.

But consider this: He has given up his wealth and comfort, to serve our nation at his own expense. He is volunteering 100 hours a week to help us. He is confronting wrong (draining the swamp) and boldly pulling for the right. He is seeking to restore America. His bold words and bold actions are signs of true humility towards the One who calls us to action.

WE MUST NOT BE COWARDS WHO CALL OURSELVES HUMBLE

Humility and boldness must go together! Not being bold is prideful or fearful. When the Commander calls us to war courageously, we must not beg off claiming humility. That “humility” may be nothing but cowardice or irresponsibility. Not being bold is defiance of God and disrespect for His assignments.

HUMILITY IN ACTION

Humble before God is boldly entering His awesome presence by the blood of Jesus.

Humble before God is boldness in exposing and confronting evil.

Humble with God is sharing Jesus fearlessly.

When He tells us to be bold and courageous, and we do our best to act bravely, that is humility toward God!

May you find that place of harmonic coordination, get up on your skis and glide on the water!

WHAT THINKEST THOU?

How are you at coordinating the Christian virtues of humility and boldness?

SHOPPING SPREE!

Posted in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Several years ago the Lord gave me the word, “Spiritual Shopping Spree.”

Perhaps there is someone in the universe who looks down on shopping sprees. “Sure they sound nice but shopping sprees can be exhausting. You’re given a few thousand dollars to freely spend but you still have to push the cart up and down the isles, make decisions about what to get, then push that heavy cart out to your car.”

I’ve found similar attitudes when it comes to prayer. “Sure Jesus says, ‘I will do whatever you ask in my name’ (John 14:13). But you still have to push the shopping cart, make the decisions about what you want and load up, and haul it home. And besides, what if you load up your cart just to find God won’t let you out of the store with it. It’s better not to pray, that way you will never be disappointed.”

Religious Lawyers come out as we pray to make sure we don’t ask the gracious Father too much, or expect too much from Him. They don’t want us to be disappointed when prayers are not answered.

They warn us that there are many qualifiers to Jesus’ generous offers. They go through lots of tiny print which no one else can find in the scriptures. They assure us that God answers prayer occasionally, and they have personally heard of it happening, but just don’t expect too much. They protect God from requests which are too big, and protect us from disappointment.

God has been slandered and portrayed as a miserly father, either unable or unwilling to keep His promises. “He plays bate and switch with us. Since he can always find fault in us He doesn’t need to keep His promises.”

O, that His name would once again be hollowed as the generous father, so faith will again find His promises realized! The Father of Lights is the generous giver of gifts. Awakening to Fresh Faith!

Jesus really meant what He said about prayer!

Don’t pass up the spiritual shopping spree!
