EX-Pastor Discards his faith

What’s Stoppin’ You?

While getting my hair trimmed I encountered a young woman, a hair stylist who had cut my hair at least once in the past year. We greeted and after a short introduction began to talk about how she was having a difficult time making enough money cutting hair by the hour and that she needed to consider what else she may do in the future. Based on something that I had spoken with her about the first time we met, I reiterated that there may be a way for her to make some good money doing what she loves to do and it could serve to move her closer to her dream. She perked up and you could tell that I had her attention. I told her that on more than one occasion I had thought how nice it would be to have a personal hairstylist who was mobile and able to cut hair on location…whenever and wherever…by appointment.

She then proceeded to repeat what she had told me the first time we met. She said, “I have always wanted to convert an old school bus into an RV with a Mobile Salon and travel across the country cutting hair along the way.” I proceeded to affirm that we had spoken about her dream before and then I ask her WHAT’S STOPPIN’ YOU? She said, “well I want to do it right if I do it, and wherever I set up shop I would need to be licensed in every state in order to cut hair.” I continued to challenge her thinking with suggestions as to what she could do to get started. First, I told her that she did not need to worry about being licensed in every state until she had purchased and old school bus, and that she did not need to be concerned about everything that it was going to take to live her dream until she converted the bus into and RV with a salon in it. J I also told her that if she really loved the thought of traveling the country in a school bus that she could cut hair for donations and do some pro-bono work for the homeless and indigent that she encountered along the way. Then she got real quiet and I knew that I was speaking to the heart and motive of her dream.

To be honest, I already had an idea that she was not that committed to her own dream and what came out of her mouth next confirmed my assumption. She said, “well to be honest with you, this is something that is in the back of my mind; but in reality, it will more than likely never happen.”

I concluded our discussion by saying, “You never know, you might find someone who shares the same dream and you may be able to pursue it together.” Don’t give up on your dream…Don’t chase your passion, take it with you wherever you go from here.

What I took away from our encounter was priceless. What she took away from the encounter will serve to challenge her to take a closer look at what she really wants to do with her life…

Note: The more I encouraged her to think about all of the different options, the more she saw the things standing in her way. The more I spoke to her about her dream, the more it became something in the back of her mind. The sad part about our encounter was, she so easily dismissed the dream of buying a school bus, converting it, and traveling across the country cutting hair, based on the fear of failure and the real or imagined challenge of ‘What’s Stoppin’ You?

Ruling & Reigning in Life

Ruling & Reigning in Life by Messiah Yahshua.

He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
Proverbs 16:32 MEV

Many of Yahweh’s sons attempt to rule their own Spirit apart from the Sovereignty of Messiah.

I have come to understand that while we are all the children and offspring of Yahweh as it pertains to being born of the first man ADAM, we are not necessarily sons of the same Father and brothers of the same family as it pertains to being reborn of  the last man ADAM.

We will never rule and reign in life by Messiah Yahshua, unless and until we are willing to humble ourselves, become of no reputation, and wholly give ourselves to the order and governance of the Spirit, the Word and the Blood.

Until such time we are willing to become accountable to the Yahweh, Yahshua and Ruach HaKodesh, we will not be able to recognize or submit to those who represent His rule and authority in Earth.

“Where there is no submission there is no acceptance or recognition. Where there is no accountability there is no honor or credibility.”

Surrender and submission go hand in hand. One without the other will result in spending a lot of time alienated, isolated and alone, separated from the common wealth of the citizens of the Kingdom.

“We were not created to be alone. No man lives or dies to himself. No man is an island unto himself. We are not our own, we are bought with a price.”

“Yahweh said, it is not good for man to dwell alone.”

“For Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the Word of the Sovereign, He has rejected you from being king.” 1 Samuel 15:23 NKJV

For if by one man’s trespass death reigned through him, then how much more will those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17 MEV

Divine Healing & Deliverance

In this present reality the power gifts and manifestations of Holy Spirit will be reactivated in and through the lives of those who understand that they are an important part of the ongoing work of the ministry today.

There are a lot of people in this generation who are sick beyond the treatment and care of the miracle of medicine. Those same people have have been demonized for years and they are being tormented day and night by a spirit of infirmity.

Note: We need to rethink our position concerning so-called genetically predisposed and environmental sickness and disease.

Healing and deliverance was a big part of the ministry of Yahshua and He said, if by the SPIRIT and FINGER of Yahweh I cast or drive out demons, the kingdom of Yahweh has come unto and upon you. He also said, that Yahweh is kind to the unthankful and evil.

Ref. Matthew 12:28 & Luke 11:20 & Luke 6:35

Note: Healing and deliverance is a part of the full comprehensive plan of Salvation and the same faith that saved us will heal and deliver us. Divine healing, health and living is ours for the claiming and it is time for us receive the extensive coverage of all of His benefits.

Note: Hearing and Miracles are a part of our history, heritage and legacy. Yahshua is the same, yesterday, today and forever. By His stripes we were and are healed.

That being said, if we repeatedly need healing and deliverance for the same problems, it could be because of willful sin and disobedience.

The body is hard wired for healing, health and wholeness. It is up to us to do what we can to help it work like a carefully oiled machine. Restoring balance and harmony to our lives is Germaine to soundness and optimum health. Also, there are things we can do to unlock the LIFE that is contained in the DNA of Yahweh at the cellular level. By the word of the Spirit of Life and Truth, we can and will experience divine living by Faith.

Note: Everything that has Atomic Weight has a resonate frequency. There are frequencies and tones that can be used to reset our bodies to the default setting of optimum health.

Note: Most of what we eat is filled with processed sugar, salt, polyunsaturated fat, preservatives and other carcinogens. We all need to modify what we are eating and add 90 essential minerals to our diets.

Start with Vitamin D, Tumeric and Cinnamon.

Loving At All Times

“Don’t make a religion out of of being irreligious”

irreligious – indifferent or hostile to religion.

> Neglectful of religion: lacking religious emotions, doctrines, or practices.

> Indicating a lack of religion.

“We have a tendency to become that which we love and hate.”

Yahshua said, but I say to you,  love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those prosecute you, and pray for those who spitefully use and persecute you. Matthew 5:43-44 – MEV

Note: Loving, blessing, doing good and praying for people who despise, oppose and provoke us will involve a better understanding of the nature and character of Yahweh, and it will involve responding in a way that represents HIS heart at all times.

> It is important for us to LOVE what Yahweh LOVES and HATE what Yahweh HATES.

Yahweh is SPIRIT and LOVE. Therefore we must learn to respond out of the nature and character of Yahweh, which is the SPIRIT OF LOVE.

Ref. John 4:24 & 1 John 4:8

It is equally important for us to LOVE the WAY He loves at all times. Loving Him, Ourselves and One Another in and by the LOVE and Grace of YAHWEH.

James 1:27 – Real, true religion from God the Father’s perspective is about caring for the orphans and widows who suffer needlessly and resisting the evil influence of the World. The Voice

The worship that God wants is this: caring for orphans or widows who need help and keeping yourself free from the world’s evil influence. This is the kind of worship that God accepts as pure and good. ERV

Questions;

How can we say we love Yahweh and hate our brother?

How can we say we love ourselves and not others?

How can we say we love Yahweh, ourselves and others, while neglecting the orphans and widows in this world?

How can we honestly claim  to hate what Yahweh hates  and continue to be influenced by the EVIL of this world? Just asking!

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is NOT in him. 1 John 2:15 – MEV

Relationships – Rewarding & Memorable

Some of the most rewarding and memorable relationships that I have had in life, revolved around being able to embrace others where they are and eventually celebrate our differences.

If embracing others where they are causes us concern, we don’t know who we are becoming.

If we feel threatened by differences, then we don’t know why we believe what we believe.

Knowing who we are becoming empowers us to embrace others without exploiting our differences.

What we need to understand is, what is right for us, may not be right for others.

Most people react negatively to anything imposed by sanction or dogmatic predisposition.

 

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

“If making a difference is optional, very little difference will be made.”

There is no Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal, Charismatic, or Independent, division or branch of the Kingdom of Yahweh. There is only ONE house that Yahshua is building and it is the Father’s house. We are a part of that house or we are homeless, derelict and wayward.

The system lords of the institution  are operating like a drug cartel and we are still divided, separated and powerless to change the worlds in which we live.

The sons of the Kingdom are waking up to the reality that there is nothing to be gained by acting like rival gangs engaged in a turf war.

War must awake to the reality of who we are NOT before we can fully embrace our destiny as sons of the Kingdom. We are not entire or complete  apart from Him and one another.

THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR 2016

The following thoughts, insights and musings are based upon what I am seeing and hearing concerning our present reality and they are very much a part of our new normal.

Many of us have entered into the place of the press  together and the multi-cluster pressing will continue until there is nothing left of who we have become apart from Him and one another. It will continue until all that is flowing out of us is the pure, unadulterated fruit of the vine. When the crushing and  pressing are complete,  what remains will be capable of carrying and containing the new wine of revelation. Then the saying, ‘He saved the best for last’ will have a brand new meaning. Remember, the blessing is in the cluster, but the life is in the crushing.

It is absolutely essential to know why we believe what we believe to be true. Soulish prognostications, false doctrine and bad theology will not serve us in His greater Kingdom purpose.

We sincerely need a clearer understanding of the revelation of Messiah Yahshua, the fellowship of the mystery of the brotherhood,  and a better understanding of the consummation of all things.

Yahshua said, “UPON THIS ROCK, I WILL BUILD MY EKKLESIA, AND THE GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT”

NOTE: {THE ROCK} – is the revelation of Messiah Yahshua and He is presently revealing Himself to His Sons around the world.

Yahshua said, I AM
John 8:58 – (YAHWEH – IS)

He is the pattern Son:

1). He is bread of life
2). He is the light of the world
3). He is the good shepherd
4). He is the resurrection and the life
5). He is the way, the truth and the life
6). He is the true vine
7). He is the first and the last, the alpha and omega. The beginning and the end.

He is Sovereign:

The revelation of Messiah Yahshua is the foundation, the cap stone and chief cornerstone of the house. Yahshua is building the Father’s house and it shall be known as a house of prayer for all nations.

The global community is made up of sons, brothers and friends who know one another by Holy Spirit. They recognize that we are sons of the same Father and brothers of the same family.

We can no longer afford to know one another by the flesh or (man-made distinctions, delineations or established designations)

The Scripture does not teach that we are building a Him a house, opening a church or establishing a ministry. On the contrary, WE are the HOUSE,  the  EKKLESIA,  and we need to count it a high privilege to be considered a part of His ongoing WORK and MINISTRY.

Note: It is not OUR house, OUR people, or OUR ministry. WE are HIS and HIS alone.

We need to reject any and everything that separates or divides us from HIM and ONE ANOTHER.

As sons of the Kingdom, we must come into agreement with the prayer of Yahshua in (John 17:21) and we must fully embrace the Father’s heart concerning our oneness in Him. (Ephesians 4:1-6)

Yahshua said, “a house divided against itself, cannot stand.” “If two of you agree on earth as concerning anything, it shall be done unto them.” “Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I Am there in the midst of them.” “Fear not little flock for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.

If we refuse to come together in Him, our influence and impact will continue to wain. If we fail to embrace one another in Him, we may soon find ourselves alienated, isolated and adrift as castaways.

Note: A better understanding of the fullness of times and the consummation of all things will come when we fully embrace our destiny as Sons of the Kingdom and find ourselves in Him with one another. Selah!

Note: In no way should these thoughts and insights be considered the final word on any subject.

However. they should be prayerfully considered in light of what Holy Spirit is saying to the sons of the Kingdom and His Ekklesia.

Grace and Peace.

Blessings

The Ekklesia of Brotherly Love

The following letter was written to the Ekklesia at Philadelphia. However, as with all of the letters that were written, there are parts of them that still speak to us today. I believe that we are in a time when the letter to the Ekklesia in Philadelphia is speaking to the Ekklesia of our time in a way that will encourage us in the way. Please consider all of the different ways that it is still speaking to us today.

7“To the messenger of the church in Philadelphia, write:‘The one who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens a door that no one can shut, and who shuts a door that no one can open, ‘says this: 8‘I know what you’ve been doing. Look! I have put in front of you an open door that no one can shut. You have only a little strength, but you have obeyed my word and have not denied my name. 9I will make those who belong to the synagogue of Satan—those who claim to be Jews and aren’t, but are lying—come and bow down at your feet. Then they will realize that I have loved you. 10Because you have obeyed my command to endure, I will keep you from the hour of testing that is coming to the whole world to test those living on the earth. 11I am coming soon! Hold on to what you have so that no one takes your victor’s crown. 12I will make the one who conquers to become a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and he will never go out of it again. I will write on him the name of my God, the name of the city of my God (the new Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God), and my own new name.13‘Let everyone listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.’”

Revelation 3:7-13 ISV

POINTS TO CONSIDER:

1). I have put in front of you and open door that no man can shut

2). You have little strength

3). You have obeyed my Word

4). You have NOT denied MY NAME

5). You have obeyed my command to endure

Etc.

OPEN VISION – 2-28-15

While praying in the Spirit before falling to sleep, I had an open vision concerning this time and season, as well as our coming together in HIM.

Scene One:

I saw a pan full of stones, all shapes, sizes and colors. Upon first glance it was just a pan full of stones; but then the pan began to gently shake and the stones moved into place. There was no certain configuration or pattern as they came together in this time.

Scene Two:

I saw what looked like trees on a flat piece of property. As I was praying I saw them begin to move closer together. Then more trees from all around the area began to move toward the cluster. It was then that a strong wind blew against the trees and because they were strong, they were not destroyed. Then it seemed as though I was looking down from above at the cluster of trees and it appeared the they had become a dense forest. As the wind continued to blow it could only move the top of the trees.
