Where Do We Go From Here?

November 2012

11-7 – We woke up this morning to a very different country in one way or the other. The reality is, we are not sure what all this will mean to the next generation; but based on the past four years the state of this union is yet to be determined. As I looked at the map of the electorate it became clear to me that we have become a broken and divided nation. The Mississippi Valley was solid Red, and at the time the Northeast and west were all blue. Over the past few days Florida and other states have been added to the Blue states. I have become acutely aware that the Mississippi Valley represents the heartland and bread basket of America and it gives me great joy to know that they mostly got it right. I am proud of my southern heritage and do not desire to live anywhere else. That said, this picture speaks of a much deeper problem than we know and if the blue states represented the blocked and damaged arteries of the heart of this nation, we all know what that means in the natural. Based on this understanding I am shifting my prayers to a more proactive approach to surgically removing the blockage and thereby healing the broken heart of this damaged nation. We must now shift our focus to the Holy Nation, by representing the Father’s heart to the next generation. We need to get serious about advancing His Kingdom in our lifetime. We must move past our anger and disappointment and focus our intent on making a lasting difference, thereby changing the worlds in which we live. We have a real opportunity to represent the solution and continued bantering about our disapproval will only lead to more confusion and disillusionment.

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

11-9 – The following is a summary of what I have been hearing loud and clear for 2012 and it should serve to help us get through 2013 and beyond. There are still a number of world changing events coming and we must be willing to take the initiative necessary to insure the safety and security of our future. It is time to get serious about the reality of a weakened global economy and realize that whatever happens here and now could most certainly have adverse effects there and then. We must not allow the agents of disinformation or the government controlled news media to be the iambic pentameter of our forward and upward movement. It is past time for us to move on as we find our true north by being about our Father’s business. I encourage you to shift in your thinking, make the turn in your heart, and together we will rise to take the day. I am asking you stand in agreement with me, that we will arrive at a better Kingdom conclusion, and by this time next year our journey and landscape will look very different.

Isaiah 48:6-7 AMP You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known.  They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, Behold, I knew them!

> Yahweh is doing a new thing and it is about becoming firmly rooted and grounded in our identity as sons.

> Yahweh is in the process of releasing the eternal inheritance of His sons.

> Yahweh is giving us grace to lose interest in the many things, so we can focus on what is important.

(It is not an excuse to be incompetent or irresponsible; but it is the strength to say NO)

> We must begin to ask the right questions in order to arrive at the correct conclusions.

Question: Where do we go from here? The answer to that question is already available to those who are hearing and obeying the voice of the Spirit.

> We have come to the end of an era, an epoch event is happening NOW!

A great awakening is taking place around the world and the sons of Yahweh are arising to take their place at the Father’s table.

(The Father’s table is where He shares His heart with us and where we share His heart with one another)

>We are sons of Yahweh and the consummation of all things is upon us. This generation will arrive at a better conclusion concerning His eternal Kingdom.

> We need to prepare our hearts and make ready our houses to receive the influx and increase of people that are coming to us.

Ref. (Recent happenings and events in Charlotte and Minnesota)

Ref. ( Recent reports from around the world are coming in through former Muslims who claim that Yahshua is personally coming to them in their dreams and visions, revealing Himself by name, as the  true Son of Yahweh. Consequently, they are coming to a saving knowledge of the truth and converting from Islam. Who would have thought? GLORY! GLORY! GLORY to Yahweh!

> Some of us are up for promotion.  The good news is, if you are at the bottom, UP represents a promotion, and the not so good news is, promotion at any level comes with more responsibility and accountability, and there is always the potential for both greater reward and consequence.

Question: Have you ever felt like something is missing?

“We have become who we are apart from Him, and now we have grown accustomed to operating and functioning without the presence of His power in our daily lives” blh

It is time to go big or go home!

> We have all come into ‘The Way’ from diverse backgrounds, and at a time appointed by the Father. He chooses the time and place, and He grants us the grace to repent. One thing Yahweh drove home to me is, the way out is in, and the way up is down. He told me early on that I was bought with a price and my life is not my own. There are no self-made men. We are no more than the sum total of our life experiences and what we have become in Him by the work and operation of Holy Spirit.

> We are moving into a time of exponential, exuberant growth, and we must be prepared to continue to lay our lives down for the greater purpose of the Kingdom. The increase is coming to those who are prepared and ready to receive the influx of new and battle-torn people from all walks of life. There is a mass exodus taking place right now in two arenas of life.

(Those who have grown weary and frustrated with Western Christendom and those who had been marinating and maturing in the wilderness)

KA-BOOM! JOIN THE MOVEMENT

> We will either be a part of the movement of Yahweh in planet earth, or our forward progress will slow to a halt, as we are immobilized.

‘The Seventh Wave Is Here’ (In the natural, the seventh wave is usually bigger than the previous six)

> We will either catch the next wave, or we will be caught in the undertow and carried out to sea!

> We Are The Movement!

We must emerge representing the movement of Yahweh to this generation, or be left standing in the dust created by the momentum of Kingdom advancement,

> We Are The Next Wave!

We must go forth the power of the next wave, or we will become a part of the debris and foam that washes ashore in the coming days.

> We Are The Glory Bringing Hope!

We must come to grips with the reality that we represent the glory bringing hope to this generation, and we must fully embrace the responsibility of making a lasting difference in our lifetime.

  1. Continued;

    11-29 – We must be willing to allow non-covenantal relationships to find their own way into a better understanding of sonship, corporate life and family.

    Note; However, as it pertains to covenantal relationships, let no man put them asunder. (There is only one way for ordained, covenantal relationship to be put asunder. Abandonment or death) – (What Yahweh has joined together, let no man put asunder)

    Mark 10:9 – What therefore Yahweh has united (joined together), let not man separate or divide. AMP

    (Covenantal Relationships are those that are ordained by Yahweh and birthed by Holy Spirit)

    We need to stop putting so much time and energy into people who refuse to change, and who are emphatically set in their ways.

    (Usually people 45 years or older) – (There may be a few exceptions, but not many)

    Note; We need to focus our attention on reaching the unreached, and ministering to the people who reelected Barak Obama. (18 to 31 years of age)

    Note; Many of them will not be found within the confines of the religious systems of this world and most of them have taken a different path in their quest for truth.

    We must be willing to receive them where they are, and help them discover who they are predestined to BE as sons.

    Note; Our thrust and emphasis needs to shift to reaching those who are still on a quest for truth, those who have yet to discover and lay hold of their foreordained destiny and purpose.

    It is our responsibility as fathers to help others discover their destiny as sons. Nothing more! Nothing less!

    That will be primarily accomplished by modeling the pattern of the Son as brothers and friends.

    They will honor the Father in us, as we embark upon destiny together, and we will receive our inheritance as sons and brothers of the Father’s House and Family.

    “Sonship is our destiny and our inheritance is wrapped up in discovery” BLH

    ________________________________________

    11-30 – Receiving the full embrace of the Father’s love and forgiveness is a very important part of the discovery making process. That will include forgiving yourself as well as others who have hurt or harmed you in any way. (Family, friends or people in general)

    Note; If you have been hurt or wounded by an spiritual leader of offended by a brother, there are several things that need to happen before you will be able to get past it and move on.

    1). It would be good for you to write down what you would say to them if you could, and seal it up in an envelope. You need to address it and put it away until you have had an ample amount of time to pray about mailing it or not.

    2). After you have prayed for some time and carefully considered all of the ramifications concerning mailing your letter, you need to mail or deliver it or not.

    3). When it leaves your hand, you need to willingly choose to forgive them and release them from any judgment that you have against them.

    The power of unforgiveness will be broken over your life, when you remember what your forgiveness cost. Unforgiveness is like a cancer that is eating away at your ability to love and trust. You may be surprised to discover that the offender may not be aware that they have been imprisoned in your heart because of the pain they caused you.
    The journey is our destiny and it will be fraught with glorious victories and the agony of defeat. We all need to learn to enjoy the journey and live in the moment. Nothing is going to happen today that is not in some way working His will and purpose in our lives.

    Note; I have come to live by three basic rules.

    1). Live life to the fullest everyday…

    2). Do not live with regrets…

    3). Do not try to determine the outcome…

    We all need spiritually mature fathers and mothers in our lives. Their wisdom and understanding will serve to challenge, correct and save us when we are not living up to our new creation identity in Messiah Yahshua.

    We all need spiritually mature brothers, sisters and friends in our lives. Their love and caring will sustain us in the darkest of hours. The scripture teaches us to love the brotherhood and honor all men. It also teaches us to love one another as I have loved you.

  2. 12-7 – You ARE a son. We ARE sons. Servants are slaves that care for the house and family, but they are not heirs by birthright.

    Note; For too long we have lived like servants and slaves in the Father’s house. Sons do not need permission to worship. Sons do not need permission to give themselves to the works of service. Sons do not need permission to rule and reign.

    Galatians 4:1-7 – Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time had come, Yahweh sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, Yahweh has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of Yahweh through Messiah.

    3-5 – So we [Jewish Christians] also, when we were minors, were kept like slaves under [the rules of the Hebrew ritual and subject to] the elementary teachings of a system of external observations and regulations. But when the proper time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born subject to [the regulations of] the Law, To purchase the freedom of (to ransom, to redeem, to atone for) those who were subject to the Law, that we might be adopted and have sonship conferred upon us [and be recognized as God’s sons].

    Note; You will never come into your inheritance until you fully embrace your destiny as sons.

    Note; I have come to understand that we have always been children of Yahweh, but the separation of sin and what we became a part from Him caused us to suffer from spiritual amnesia. Simply put, we forgot who we were predestined to BE as sons, and lost our way because of an identity crisis.

    What if we began to operate from that mindset, as it pertains to those who have not yet arrived at the place called destiny? What if we stopped treating the people of our worlds like runaway step children or bastard sons? What if we were willing to love them enough to help them rediscover their true identity in HIM?

    1 John 3:1-3 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of Yahweh! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of Yahweh; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

    Note; The orphan of your soul is constantly trying to convince the son of your spirit that you are not an heir to the throne. His voice will fade as you come to realize that the time appointed by the Father is NOW, and the consummation of all things is in HIM.

    Romans 8:12-17 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of Yahweh, these are sons of Yahweh. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of Yahweh, and if children, then heirs—heirs of Yahweh and joint heirs with Messiah, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

  3. January 2013

    1-1 – The message is universal. [The Father is generally saying the same thing to His people worldwide. He is speaking by His Spirit to the sons in every land. What He is saying to His sons in the west, He is saying to His sons in the east. He does not have one message for this country and another for that country. His Word and Truth as universal and therefore ONE].

    Ephesian 4:11-16 – And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Messiah, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of Yahweh, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Messiah; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Messiah— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. NKJV

    {He handed out gifts above and below, filled heaven with his gifts, filled earth with his gifts. He handed out gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist, and pastor-teacher to train Christ’s followers in skilled servant work, working within Christ’s body, the church, until we’re all moving rhythmically and easily with each other, efficient and graceful in response to God’s Son, fully mature adults, fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ. No prolonged infancies among us, please. We’ll not tolerate babes in the woods, small children who are an easy mark for impostors. God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love—like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love}. TMG

    We must unite around His greater Kingdom purpose. [Unity is not sameness, but diversity is the spice of life. It is not enough to relate beyond or in spite of our differences. We must learn to relate because of our differences. We must learn to embrace the many different expressions of the body of Messiah until such time we come into the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the son of Yahweh].

    Note: Holy Spirit spoke to me last year and told me that we are wasting our time trying to establish Ephesians 4:11-16 until we honestly embrace Ephesians 4:1-8. All I could do is weep at the time. I humbly submit the following discovery for your consideration.

    Ephesians 4:1-8 I, therefore, the prisoner of Yahshua, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is ONE BODY and ONE SPIRIT, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; ONE SOVEREIGN, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM; ONE ELOHIM and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Messiah’s gift. Therefore He says: “When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men.”

    Psalms 133:1-3 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there Yahweh commanded the blessing—Life forevermore.

    Note: He also told me that in order to see Ephesians 4:11-16 established, we would have to go through Ephesians 4:9-10. (In other words, the way out is in and the way up is down)-(If we are going to see apostolic order and Kingdom government established in our lifetime we must be willing to descend and go down into the depths of darkness and there be stripped of everything we have known of life and ministry. What we have become apart from Him is the fictional man. In order to emerge as the authentic man we have to be brought low, becoming of no reputation and everything that does not represent Him must die. If we refuse to go through this process He will have no choice but to keep us from ascending in the realm.

    Romans 12: 9-13 [Let your] love be sincere (a real thing); hate what is evil [loathe all ungodliness, turn in horror from wickedness], but hold fast to that which is good. Love one another with brotherly affection [as members of one family], giving precedence and showing honor to one another. Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord. Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of God’s people [sharing in the necessities of the saints]; pursue the practice of hospitality.

    Colossians 3:12-14 Clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by] tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly opinion of yourselves, gentle ways, [and] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper]. Be gentle and forbearing with one another and, if one has a difference (a grievance or complaint) against another, readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has [freely] forgiven you, so must you also [forgive]. And above all these [put on] love and enfold yourselves with the bond of perfectness [which binds everything together completely in ideal harmony].

    1 Peter 3:8-9 Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude. Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it. NLT

    1 Peter 3:8-12 Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing. MSG

    1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Sovereign Yahshua Messiah, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

    We must advance His Kingdom together. [It is expedient that we lower our defense shields and power down our weapons as we come into agreement around His greater Kingdom purpose. Yahshua is the King of kings and the Lord of lords and all power and authority in heaven and earth are His.

    The Kingdom equation is; Agreement + Alignment + Alliance = Advancement

    ________________________________________

    1-7 – I woke up this morning with two things coming out of my mouth.

    “If there are no accompanying signs and wonders, it is not the gospel of the Kingdom being preached.”
    “Failure to discern the season of the Spirit will force us to settle for less than Kingdom results.”
    Note: This is the season of the evangelist, and signs, wonders and miracles are forth coming.

    (The ministry gift of evangelist has all but been lost to the body of Messiah because we have relegated them to beginner or novice ministries, or we devalued and depreciated the importance of preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, winning the lost and changing the worlds in which we live)

    (It is time for us to begin to re-emphasize the importance of all the ministry gifts of Yahshua to the Ekklesia, and do so by re-introducing the evangelist back into the work. With the obfuscation of the importance of the evangelist we lost the worlds in which we live, the culture, and our way. The power gifts [gifts of healings, miracles & faith] were withdrawn and buried in the archives of non-essential equipment).

    (We need to repent for our disobedience, rebellion and lack of discernment, and turn in our hearts to full embrace all of the ministry gifts of Yahshua to the Ekklesia. If we refuse to receive every gift that Yahshua has given, we will never be equipped or empowered in out lifetimes)
