Are We Cultivating Seed or Weeds?

Whose Seed Are WE Carrying?


Weeds seem to grow and thrive all on their own, without any work on the part of the gardener! While seeds take a great deal of intentional attention and effort to produce the desired fruit! And it has been this way since that poor choice in The Garden of Eden, which resulted in God removing His presence from this planet! 


There's this saying, “If you lie down with dogs, you will get up with fleas.” We want to complain about our flea-ridden society, but we need to take a closer look at what is causing this issue, and who it is that God will hold responsible for “sleeping with the dogs”.


Thank God that we are finally seeing another move of The Spirit of God in His remnant. There is an awakening of responsibility that has been needed, but missing, for decades!


This last significant time of hardship, which was brought on by God's judgment of the religious system in America known as “Church”, has brought an awakening that some of His faithful ones have been calling for since the “Jesus Movement” of the late sixties and early seventies!


A profound observation on the history of our nation  and the world, actually, will reveal that there has always been two elements at work at the same time - Good and Evil.


For example, from the onset of this nation, there were those sincere believers in God, Yeshua as Messiah, “Jesus The Christ”, who truly had His Spirit as their guide. These "separatists" (called that because they dared to separate themselves from the religious oppression of England) came to America simply to pursue a life free of the religious tyranny of their homeland.


Those people made peace with the previous occupants of the land, at least with those who would be peaceful, and worked hard to establish a place among them, not to displace them!


Then there were those others, who saw this land as yet another money making opportunity, who thought nothing of killing off the original inhabitants in order to exploit and decimate their land! Most used a thinly veiled religious rhetoric to cover their real motives. 


Fast forward to our time. The older ones among us remember a time when, in the late sixties and early seventies, there arose a great deception which propounded the idea that sexual freedom was the great heal-all of every human frustration and angst!


This deception has, sadly,  produced an overwhelming surge in the divorce rate, and, even worse, a staggering, horrific, abortion rate, from the unwanted offspring which this “freedom fest” conceived! The proponents of this "sexual freedom" had huge campouts called “love-ins”, which would have more appropriately been labeled “Lust-ins”, in which people freely partook of their various lusts without social condemnation. 


While at the same time, there was a rumbling, which was also outside the basic organized system of religion, wherein people were, again seeking for REAL Freedom from THAT religious tyranny, which had crept over here with the greedy people – a religious form which they used to justify their greed and avarice, if only to themselves.


That new “movement” was a “Jesus Only” ideology, wherein young people dared to pitch the old-wineskins of accepted hymnology, and instead brought their preferred music to the table, wrote anointed songs to it, and rocked out in honor of THE ROCK of our Salvation - in real worship! There were, in that Freedom movement as well, also campouts called “Jesus festivals”, where people camped out for weeks on end, as these people brought real worship to them in a way that had not been seen! This new found religious freedom was openly condemned by mainstream “Christianity” at that time! Because religion is NOT about FREEDOM! Whether the religion is humanism or denominationalism!


So, it happened that we had “Hippie-fests” and “Jesus-fests” going on at the same time! With some people finding a temporary “freedom” in sexual expression (which led to anything BUT actual freedom), and some people finding real freedom in the Worship of the ONE TRUE God, through which, and on which, our nation was founded.


Two motivations at work at the same time. Just pick a time in our history, in the history of the world, actually, since Adam and Eve got conflicted in the Garden, and, if one observes closely, one can see this parallel-contradictory struggle of humanity, struggling with the kingdom of darkness vs The Kingdom of Light. Good vs. Evil. Historically, making up our mind on whichi is which, and which is best for us, has been a real conundrum.


It is no different today. Yet another historical reality is that it isn't just the “unchurched worldly ones” who struggle with who their god is going to be! The religious have historically been the easiest to deceive! Adam and Eve get a lot of flack in religious circles, but from my observation most people - as they did - struggle to take God at His Word, actually BELIEVE what HE says, and/or LIVE in total loyal obedience to Him!


The majority of the so-called “Church” is STILL struggling between some kind of religious standard (which most of THEM can't keep, but which they use to judge others) – and/or - the politically correct foolishness which has taken our nation hostage – usually coming down on some strange mixture of them both!


Many can not see the line of righteousness because they've never bothered to find it for themselves and apply it to their own lives! Most of the church-going masses, who make it a priority to attend some church service every week, and utterly disdain those who won't, have put the responsibility for their eternal welfare entirely on their pastors! (No wonder those who have chosen that status for a living succumb to heart failure at an alarming rate, statistically speaking! No pressure there! Listen – Yeshua took that entire burden on HIMSELF. It does not belong to any other mere human!) When GOD insists that each person be responsible to HIM for their eternal well-being! 


This utter lack of personal responsibility, mixed with an attitude of immature expectancy, is the perfect combination for utter deception and failure of real Kingdom principles, such as character building, and spiritual growth! All of which are necessary for real freedom to grow and exist. Thus the moral decline in our nation.


It isn't because “the heathens are increasing”, it is because the faithful have decreased significantly. It isn't because sinners sin! It is because those who are claiming to be righteous make excuses for their sin, and use grace as some kind of camouflage, instead of letting it be the lye soap that will purge sin from their lives!


Even many of those who caught the vision during "The Jesus Movement" got caught in the nets of many false doctrines which began circulating instantly. “The hyper-faith” movement - the “greasy-grace” movement – and the “keep the old-wineskin” movement, all came forward to twist, pervert or condemn the new found spiritual freedom that had been acquired by these brave new God seekers.


Today is no different. Today we have many “prophetic voices”, or folks who believe themselves to be “hearing from God”, who are declaring many types of messages.


Some decree and declare words of hope, some of those bordering on ecstatic denial of reality! And then there are yet others propounding visions of doom and gloom – perpetuating fear instead of faith – because they never bring God's solutions to the challenges they are “seeing”.


Most have some element of truth in their “visions”, but too many have jumped to conclusions which are either unscriptural or just untimely, because they didn't wait patiently on GOD's conclusions!


There are, as usual TWO things going on simultaneously here, in this season as well. First, God HAS decreed that He would intervene against the destruction of our nation!


HOWEVER – He NEVER said that HE was going to do some magic trick that didn't necessitate OUR involvement!


There are some people in “spiritual leadership” or who have social status, who are pushing us to take up arms, when I believe God has merely said to take up our position, WORSHIP HIM, and SEE HIS SALVATION!


Should we be FREE to take up arms? Absolutely! Could there arise a situation in which we might need to be prepared for that? Very possibly! However, to jump straight to that “solution” without hearing a direct Word from God is usually a huge mistake. (* please Read all of the account of Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles)


It is the opposite end of the “All or nothing” stick, wherein the “nothing” is to ignore it, pretending that we are “believing God” for His deliverance - though we refuse to Worship Him, or actively do anything else about it! 


The Word IS clear that Faith without works is dead! But , then, it is just as clear that a lot of religious busywork without faith is just as worthless! In order for Faith to be the motivation for our works we must first have heard something to believe, so that we are clear on that which we are being expected to act!


Faith is an act of obedience, not simply a positive mental thought pattern! It is not wishful thinking! It is hearing a clear Word of God - and then acting on it affirmatively - KNOWING that what HE has said WILL come to pass – WHEN WE BELIEVE IT, DECLARE IT, and DO whatever HE has said to DO about it! (Again, 2 Chronicles 20 is a great example of this principle).


Faith and Fear are both seed bearing functions. Faith produces the will of God – LIFE, LOVE, VICTORY, Etc. Fear produces the opposite – death, hate, defeat …. and so on. But WE get the deciding vote on which seed WE will perpetuate! The question of the day, then, is what are we propagating with our thoughts, words, and actions - or lack thereof? Whose Kingdom are we supporting? Are we bearers of Life or Death, Faith or Fear, Victory or Victimization, Seeds or Weeds? Do we have more “faith”, for example, in the power of the pandemic than we do in the power of Yeshua's awesome sacrifice?


At some point we MUST decide and stop wavering between two opinions! As Elijah challenged the Israelites of his day - “IF YeHoVaH ELOHIM is GOD them WORSHIP HIM!" That is -  Make HIM the supreme decision maker of your life! OBEY HIM FIRST AND FOREMOST!'' But if “Corona”, or “Ease”, or Wealth or Personal Safety – or – Fill in the blank _______ - is your god then continue to worship that!


But here's the deal – if we choose – by our actions (despite any imagined “intentions”) to serve those other gods in our lives – by making those things the actual priorities, to give those things our attention instead of HIM – then we don't get to whine when HIS BEST WILL is NOT done in our lives! When healing doesn't make it to us, when our loved ones don't regard Him, when finances fail time and again, when what we call “life” continues to take its horrific dumps on our face!


Because we can't have it both ways people! No one can “have his or her cake and eat it too”! That is a phrase meaning that we want to consume our blessings without diminishing them. The ONLY way our blessings are used but not consumed is if we give them away - and that is a spiritual, miraculous, mystery! Consuming anything on our own lusts, however, is the way to total lack, loss and defeat! Selfishness is NOT a fruit of The Spirit! It is a characteristic of the fallen, judged, condemned flesh!


And no – simply running to the altar, one time in VBS, to get our “get out of hell free card”, is NOT going to deal with all of the sin issue! Salvation is REAL! But we can never fully benefit from it UNLESS we participate in HIS processes of Redemption afterward! (Such as - “renewing our minds with The WORD”.... Repenting of evil as needed.... and letting His Spirit crucify our flesh by choosing to feed our enlivened spirit-being!)


This why we are instructed “CHOOSE LIFE”. It is a CHOICE. It is a choice which must be made every day, every decision, sometimes every minute!


God is very “pro-choice”! He never forces His way on anyone. He actually insists that we choose!


The difference, however, in HIS idea of “pro-choice”- and what is currently popular  - is that He insists that we must choose LIFE – for the unborn – for the lost – for ourselves - if we want HIS BLESSING ON OUR LIVES – instead of merely, apathetically, choosing the ways of the flesh – ease, selfish gratification, or protection which circumvents Himself.  These flesh-motivated “choices” always lead to death and destruction. Even if it is a default “choice”, which is the result of refusing to actually choose!


It is time that HIS people CHOOSE which seed they will plant, and whether they will water weeds or seeds. This nation will not come out of this downward drift by herself. It is up to us. The choice is ours and the time is now.

A Prayer of Teshuvah

Dearest Avinu, Malkenu – my Father, my King!


I CHOOSE to Trust in YOU, as The Creator of the world, and of me, and of all that I see and love. Thank You! I CHOOSE to lift up praise, to Thank You for going to the trouble to give us back access into Your presence – through the Blood of our Passover Lamb - after we sold it! And – I thank You that when we repent, You forgive and grant us access after we sell it time and again! Thank YOU for Your patience with us! Help us Abba, to be more faithful, grateful and obedient!


FORGIVE YOUR PEOPLE OH MERCIFUL GOD, for their selective stupidity about this “holiday”! Forgive this persistence in pursuing tradition that is laden with disgusting symbols of idolatry and calling it “innocent fun”! Forgive their choice of “innocence” - which is a choice to refuse to know Truth, and live in an alternate Reality) over PURITY – which is a choice to rise above all seeming reality for the sake of Truth!


Forgive the “Church” in America for, once again, spitting on Your Appointed Time to pursue their own tradition – which has NOTHING to do with the RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD! Forgive us Oh, God!!!!! And then to make matters worse, they mock the obedient of the original Vine, for keeping Your festivals!!! OY GEVAULT! Forgive us Father!


Forgive those in leadership who are misleading Your people, Who refuse to acknowledge Your Holy Days – in the name of “Grace”, and those who refuse to know Your real Name, who persist in calling you by the name of a heathen false god! I am SO sorry! I repent in their place until they can realize their transgression and come to their senses!


Forgive the many, many doctrinal errors that are taught in place of Your actual Word! Forgive the Jewish legalisms, and adaptations, of Your Word, but ALSO, forgive, please forgive, the multiplied errors that have been made by all the forms of so-called “Christianity” who were trying to correct the Jewish error!!! Some in sincerity, and some in arrogance!!! Forgive the hypocrisy, the ironic moronic idea of “denominationalism”! A religious devastation that has produced the division its name denotes, instead of the Unity that You desire!


Forgive all the sins of this religious system that has been foisted upon Your people, many of them have been deceived unwitting, but many of them have simply chosen to be selectively, stubbornly, resistant to Your TRUTH! And too many of them are IN LEADERSHIP!!!!!!


I come before You today, Holy Father, to plead Your forgiveness over these many departures from Your Word and Faith, which have placed our nation in jeopardy, by incurring Your judgement! I thank You that “Mercy triumphs over judgment”! But I am pretty sure that only works IF the judgment produces the appropriate response, which is REPENTANCE! TESHUVAH!


This season, dearest LORD, please do whatever You must to awaken Your people to these dread mistakes they are making, and bring them fully into obedience to Your Word, so that our land can be blessed again!


In The Name of our Precious LORD and Savior, Yeshua The Anointed One, I intercede,


A Prayer of Teshuvah

Don't Take That Bait!

Speaking Truth in Love, Resisting Offense, and Other Important Lessons


First of all we are commanded to “Speak the Truth in love”. So that we can ALL “grow up” into the image of The Anointed One (The Christ). To me Truth IS Love, because it is Truth that makes us free, and enables the spiritual growth process. Though, again motives matter. To speak Truth in Love, means to expound the ideas of a loving God, for the same reason He does, to save us from our iniquitous flesh and it's traps!


This does not usually happen while propounding a lot of politically or religiously acceptable – but Scripturally erroneous – deception! Untruth causes bondage and leads people away from God – Who Is The SOURCE of ALL TRUTH. Therefore anything but His Truth, spoken from a heart of real concern and desire to help, is not love.


I don't care how “good” pushing untruth or half-truth or popular opinion might make people “feel”. Pandering to the “FEELINGS” of the flesh, enabling flesh in any way, is the total opposite of LOVE. The flesh is born in leagues with the devil and has to be eradicated by Spirit and TRUTH. Flesh loves deception because deception never challenges it or deprives it! Feeding the flesh is giving the devil the keys to our safe – it is just throwing wide the door for him to rob us blind! Not much love in that!


Second. I have been a seeker of HIS TRUTH, for MYSELF, so that I do not continuously, unintentionally, give the devil access to my goods 24/7, most of my life! I have been slugging through the jungle of man-made religion, for most of my life as well, since I became an avid believer in the reality of Jesus, and The Word of God, as coming from GOD, THE CREATOR of the universe, at the age of 3. Not kidding. When I found Jesus it was the best day of my short life. As a victim of sustained and prolonged abuse, sexual and otherwise, from infancy, I was desperate for any experience that was not horrific, disappointing or crippling! I was desperate for love. He, Jesus, filled that need!


As a result of that meeting, because a kind pastor's wife introduced me to Him at a revival meeting, in a Sunday School class - the spiritual realm became MY reality. I was reading The Word, and was being used by The Spirit of God, in evangelism by the time I was 4 and 5 years old. I was baptized in water at the age of 8, and was teaching Sunday School with the approval of the Pastor by the time I was 12, and testifying of His love, grace and help, under the power of The Spirit in study hall my junior and senior years (before I was totally filled with His Spirit). I found the “upgrade” to the Baptism of The Holy Spirit (and asked Him to fill me with His presence & anointing) at the age of 20, through a friend in college.


I've been after His Anointing, and growing in it, ever since. Repenting as often as necessary so as to decrease to the fleshly ways of doing and being, so that HE can increase HIS rule over my life, so that I can increase in His Character and Wisdom, to the point of being able to allow Him to do what He does through me! I want to get out of HIS WAY! So if HE says to stop doing something I stop! And if HE says to do something different I DO! It's called OBEDIENCE. Because, being an actual reader (devourer) of His Word, I understand Him to insist that Obedience is the prerequisite to His Blessing over our lives - and the means to delight Him. Win/win!


Therefore, I believe that His Spirit will lead us into all TRUTH, as we follow. Not all at once! We couldn't bear it. But as we take one step He opens the door for the next and so it goes. Until we are walking in tandem with Him, and His nature is evident within us. So as HE illuminates something for me, and urges me to share it, I do, in hopes that others will also be illuminated.


HOWEVER, Truth has a way of offending people! OY! Especially those who aren't really interested in it. Or those who think they already have the market cornered in it. Those whose attitude is “My mind is made up, don't bother me with the facts, much less the TRUTH!”


Real Truth is only usually received by those humble enough to believe, or at least consider the idea that they may have missed something! And, just so everyone is clear, all TRUTH, in my opinion, must be confirmed and supported by The Word of God – it isn't randomly based on our feelings or opinions about a subject! The Truth usually challenges those! It isn't “my way, vs your way”. It is everyone finding THE WAY, and following HIM. So Truth requires change (repentance) on the part of everyone, especially the one conveying it! As I tell people frequently, “If what I say/write steps on your toes I'm sorry, please know that it had to stomp on mine first on the way over!”


I've said this a lot recently, but it bears repeating. If the subject matter on my page offends you, instead of spurring you on to repentance, then please feel free to go read someplace else! It isn't rocket science. No one is chaining anyone to this page. If the discomfort you feel does not prompt you to ask some serious questions of yourself, then that “Truth”, (1) either isn't for you at all, or, (2) it isn't for you at this time. OR, (3) there is a chance that it isn't truth, and I've made a mistake! No one is perfect! So. Do us all a favor and just keep moving!


(*If it's number 3 though, I'd appreciate a sincere heads up on that, instead of a scathing, condescending, religious rant – but hey, I carefully consider any and all input, and work to avoid offense at all cost, so do what you must! I'll pray over it and let The Spirit of God correct me lovingly, as He does!)


I never mind real discussion, in which folks disagree with what I am putting forth, as long as it is civil, and we are able to at least reach a place where we can agree to disagree! However, I will not tolerate inconsiderate bashing of ideas just for the heck of it, or religious or political bullying on my page. I will take arguments of that nature to the private message for further discussion, and if we can not come to a peaceful, civil, intelligent conclusion then we will part ways – meaning, I will block that person. Ain't nobody got time for that!


I definitely don't have time, won't make time, for mindless bickering over things that I've already made my mind up about. I will consider any valid, sincere, considerately expressed information! I do NOT think I've arrived! But when The Spirit of God has convicted me, and I've had it confirmed by The Word and people I trust, I most likely won't be moving! I don't really just get on here propounding other people's controversial ideas!


So. I am sorry if my method of conveying Truth, my tendency toward bluntness, my writing style, etc., offends anyone. That is never my intention. Please extend grace and don't jump to any conclusions!


But if anyone is offended by God's Truth then that is entirely their problem and not mine! That one must work that out with God, and suffer the consequences of giving way to the flesh, giving way to offense, and ignoring correction of The Spirit – even if that correction comes through an imperfect vessel. Because, for now, what other kind does He have? We are all being perfected the last time I checked. Grace, grace and more grace! It is an eternal commodity, thankfully, which doesn't run out, and is sufficient for all our needs, spiritually, mentally and emotionally – if we care to tap into it!


I hope that helps people deal with me as I learn how to manage this prophetic gift of expounding the Truth, at all cost. But again, if my processes are simply not tolerable to you then peace out! Please, go find greener pastures. No offense will be taken here. What you do, how you respond to your opportunities to be offended, is your choice, but how I respond to those is my responsibility. There are lovely, if difficult, lessons for everyone here! Don't feel alone. The struggle is real.


But whatever we do, we mustn't take the bait of offense. Offense is a pit of quicksand, which quickly pulls us to the bottom, and suffocates the life out of us. Offense gives way to the flesh, which then opens the door wide, whistles for the enemy, and gives him the power over our lives and the keys to our precious possessions! I urge you, and myself, don't do it!


It is one of his favorite tricks to defeat our spiritual growth, or at least complicate it! Oy. I hate that guy! We DO have an enemy, and it is NOT us! Our warfare is not with flesh and blood! So we need to be careful to operate in love at all times, but offense pulls us out of love, and into self-defense. Self-defense produces strongholds of fleshly and demonic operation and separates us from God, who is our real defense! So again, I adjure us all, don't do it! Don't take that bait.


I'll leave this with another spontaneous rhyme. I feel it coming on....


Don't Take That Bait!


Don't take that bait, that foul offense, that tempts the flesh to such incense!

Ask for His Grace to rise above, to find again the path of love!

Don't just succumb to that foul bait, which operates a kind of hate!

Our spirits, God can not transform, if we won't rise above the norm.


We must choose love at every turn, so we'll resist that awful burn.

Or at the least, His main desire, is that we burn with holy fire;

Only in His fire that does refine, transforming all to His design.

We must resist offense's fall, if we would answer Father's call.


We must step over what would trip, so that our love and faith don't slip.

Rest in His grace, He freely gives, that in HIS peace we all might live.

And if we do, then we will see, His stunning, Loving, Victory!

Which sees us through the darkest night, and brings us out in morning's light.


Because Yeshua set us free, and leads us on to Victory,

reflections of His loving way, will turn our darkness into day,

and give us grace that we might love, just like His Father up above,

He gave us life, He gave us choice, now it is time to lift our voice.


And pressing on into His love, we'll be like Father-God above.

So who's your God? Who guides your way? Your choices prove that every day.

Flesh or Spirit? Peace or Strife? Truth or lies? Death or LIFE?

CHOOSE LIFE & TRUTH, and stop the fuss, the choice is really up to us!


Selah & Shalom Havarim.






Don't Take That Bait!

OH! Come to US, ABIDE with Us, our God Emmanuel!

My desire for Your Presence is more than I can tell!!

As I search for words to express my desire,

Come HOLY Spirit, with Your cleansing fire!


I pray for myself, as a part of the whole,

Your body that's called to redeem all the souls;

so that we can start winning, and stop losing this FIGHT!

The good fight of FAITH to which we've been called,

Help us Spirit of GOD! To stop dropping this ball!

The pressure is on, we must pick up the pace!

The enemy's passing me, I can not succumb;

This Face

(A Tale of Redemption)

So old, so soon, saved by His Grace. God loved, and Blessed, this gentle face;

Sustained her in the Chasm Deep, was by her, when her soul would weep.

He brought her through the darkest nights, dispelling darkness with His light.

Eyes shining, full, with purpose deep, though hiding pain, and lack of sleep;

Such hope and love, that can't explain, the lack of love, or present pain;

Childhood and innocence, both removed, yet living in eternal love!

Abuse not dulling sparks of life, spirit overcoming strife,

separating life from pain, choosing hope, to live again.

Abuse forgiven, pain aside, through dissociation, Joy abides.

Though innocence gone, from those piercing eyes, reflecting now the inner cries;

the depth of pain, the awful cost, of a child abused, a childhood lost;

lost to wretched lust, and greed, which would crush a soul to fill a “need”.


Lust rips and tears a child apart, afflicting body, soul and heart;

deception deep, so foul, obtuse, to justify such raw abuse.

How does one justify, as need, that which produces such a cry?


Thank God for His great power to save such victims from an early grave;

to bring light into this darkened soul, His redeeming love, that's made me whole!

Restoring Joy, Replacing pain, enabling me to live again.


God had a purpose, a design, He uses pressure to refine;

He will use pain, He'll use abuse, no tragedy escapes His use!

He holds the painful, wounded soul, until reforged, they are made whole!

He keeps the light on in the eyes, of even those who are despised,

if they'll hold tight His loving hand, if they'll always heed His true command!

if they believe against all odds, one day those warriors will be like God!

One day His image they'll behold, and reflect it like the finest gold!

Just like He did for this little girl, when His loving grace redeemed my world,

until at last my soul's set free, to live and love eternally.

This Dreamer's Psalm of Victory

This Dreamer's Psalm of Victory


In a restless yearning I lie awake,

Threats challenging each breath I take,

And hopelessness keeps threatening my Dreams.

When the dark seems thicker than the light,

and I've exceeded all my might;

Then deliverance is closer than it seems....


I'll just hold on, the day will Dawn,

and the God that I depend upon,

Will bring the Dream I've dreamed into the Light!

And it will be more that I thought,

and worth all of those fights I've fought,

And everything will finally be set Right!


I won't stop dreaming till it comes,

'cause everybody loses some,

But without hope there's just no need to live!

So I trust in God and hold on tight!

Weeping is just for the night!

The Dawn will bring me more than I can give!


In Him, is all I want to do,

all I want to BE is in Him too,

His Eternal Love is keeping me alive.

I'll follow Him 'til the very end,

My King, Redeemer, Lord & Friend!

And He will make my dreams and visions thrive


I'll praise my way to victory,

the shadows will not hinder me,

For I believe that God is at my side!

And so I'll give Him all the praise,

My voice to Him I'll gladly raise,

Enjoying every moment of this ride!


Praise His Glorious, Awesome Name!

The One true God, always the Same!

What He's done for others He'll do for ME too!

With heart at rest and head held high,

I'll LIVE for Him until I die,

And in Him all my dreams, they will come true.

(And what He's done for others, He'll do for you too....)

Stretching Abba's Grace

Things That Are Currently Stretching Abba's Grace, Concerning “The Family of God”

(And taxing my own patience as well....)


When things are over-spiritualized, sorting through the maze of confusing spirits to find HIS Truth can be quite a struggle. And while I don't ever intend to over-spiritualize stuff, clearly, some stuff NEEDS to be brought into the Spiritual realm to be corrected. So I am STILL trying to find that balance!


All prayer appreciated. Religious fact-checking? Not so much! As with all my writing, the hope is that you read it (that is, read it ALL BEFORE jumping to self-righteous self-defense) – then - pray and hear God's opinion on it, then keep whatever HE confirms to you - and lay the rest aside (or ponder it for later) and just keep moving.


IF The Spirit of GOD leads you to offer me a correction on anything I write, please feel welcome and free to take that conversation to private message. Please don't jump me on here! I will block any who have difficulty with that boundary. Thanks. That said ….


The Body of The Anointed One is getting on ALL the nerves these days. Mine and God's if I am hearing correctly!


For example, one can enter some services and feel totally invisible, judged and ostracized! Honestly, I've been better received in some shopping malls!!!  But then, one can enter some other, more “spirit-oriented” services, and get literally gang-prayed! With or without consent!


Both approaches to “Church” is just beyond rude! The people who are set in leadership should be approachable, and socially mature enough to at least sincerely greet and welcome those who visit! If someone is above – or beneath – that basic  level of social interaction they have no business leading anything!!! Don't just surround yourselves with puppets and body guards! Go get some help with your social issues, and let someone else shepherd until you do!!! 


 On the other hand “leadership” - or those acting on their behalf - should not take it upon themselves to oppress people, or assume that what they are sensing is okay to share! Both extremes are out of order Scripturally speaking! Being unapproachable, or forcing oneself down another's throat. Neither of those are Scripturally correct! 


I mean, if one, who is spiritually mature, discerns that someone is in great discomfort, emotionally, spiritually or physically, help can, and should, be OFFERED! But that "help" should NOT be pursued unless it is agreed to! That is spiritual hijacking, rape, oppression – choose whatever adjective you will – but over-riding another person's free-will is NOT how GOD operates, and NOT how HE would have US to operate! But then neither is cowardly ignoring another's pain, and leaving them to their agony! No one is perfect! But a scriptural balance must be found, for things to work correctly. 


Both kinds of behavior is, actually, the result of religious, manipulative, controlling spirits, probably connected to that Jezebel spirit, also known as Witchcraft, when WE either try to impose any will – God's or otherwise – on a non-receiving subject - or prejudge anyone as non-approachable! We bring shame to the Kingdom  of God, and obstruct its work, when we attach The Name of The Anointed One to either end of that warped stick! We must be better than this! 


No means NO, people. If someone refuses prayer then back off! Pray in the Spirit by yourself!!! But DO NOT attempt to be Holy Spirit junior, and force your intuition on others! That is beyond rude, it is actually forbidden by God! Check yourselves, so that you don't wreck yourselves – and others! And again, if you have such badly intrenched "introversion" issues that you can't communicate once you've left the platform, you probably shouldn't be at the head of that stack! You should still be behind someone who is teaching you, and guiding you in deliverance! Just sayin'! 

That covers the social parts of "Fellowship". 


The next issue that our Father is in opposition to, is this ridiculous nonsense that political battles have nothing to do with our spiritual warfare!


Get outta here!!!!  NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! WE – so called believers - are GIVEN the responsibility to uphold and guide the GOVERNMENT of OUR NATIONS! BY GOD HIMSELF!!!


It is our responsibility to see to it that our nation honors God, and adheres to HIS LAW. Not some man-made bastardization of it!!! BUT - in the last decades - our irresponsible, religious deceptions, and doctrines of demons, have prevented us from carrying out that God given responsibility!!!!


The religious spirits, which we have allowed to rule us, either by neglect or deception, have kept us small, crippled, sheltered, and out of the picture! THAT is why our NATION is going to HELL in a politically woven, marxist designed hand-basket! Get your head out of your religious keesters and pay attention!!!!


The sad fact is that most believers, say, believe, and therefore ARE - “too poor to even pay attention”! That "old saying" is usually said with a laugh, but the joke is entirely on us! IF we are “poor” it is because we have neglected to OBEY! Because HIS BLESSING, God's Blessing, is inseparably linked to OUR OBEDIENCE!!!


As in “Abraham was BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING”, and was richer than any in his day, due to HIS unrestrained OBEDIENCE TO GOD!!!! He trusted God, and obeyed, no matter the cost to himself! And as a result, God blessed him above all the men of that day! Kings envied him! And feared him! He walked in the favor of God to that extent!


Oh that God's people today could get hold of that kind of obedience! The “Church”, at large, treats the Word of God like a fast food menu! We have our favorite parts, and rarely know what else is even offered!


But God's Word is not optional! His Grace attends us, and protects us while we pursue obedience, but it is not some lame insurance policy that covers us while we ignore, refuse, neglect and avoid obedience!!!!! That is a misuse of Scripture, and it has made us an epic failure in the world which we are commissioned to redeem!!!!!


We MUST - at least - PRAY INTO THE POLITICAL REALMS, and, if called and able to, we should also PAY into it, and GO into it – as in maybe even run for office!!!!


But if we are not called to that extent we MUST at least support the righteous ones who ARE called to be there, with our prayer and our presence, and stop just dropping our responsibility onto their burdened shoulders!!! And we need to stop doing that to spiritual leadership too!


But then, on the other hand, “spiritual leadership” should stop being control freaks who cripple the sheep, and bonsai the Oaks of Righteousness - keeping them at a useful level for their own means! These hirelings dare not let the sheep mature, lest the pay check be affected! Most leadership run a multilevel marketing scam to pay for their car and home! And then they gripe because the sheep never mature!


Listen, I've lived with that brick on my head before, I know what I am talking about! Before I was delivered of the strongholds built around significant soul wounds, back when I didn't have the clarity to see what was obstructing me, or the boundaries to do anything about it! Now I do!


Religious manipulation is keeping people from reaching full maturity and going on out into the field! My brethren, this ought not to be!!!!


AGAIN – not to be redundant – but that entity known as “The Body of Christ” (The ANOINTED ONE) needs to wake up! Grow up! And show up, in full armor to take back the land that we have frittered away in our negligence, ignorance, apathy and deception!


It is time we learned what warfare looks like, and who the real enemy is here, and how to deal with that! It is time we got a deeper connection with our commanding officer, Yeshua The Anointed One, and got in step with HIM! This nation will not survive another generation of this apathetic religious hogwash! Let's leave the hog slop of mainstream “Christianity” behind, to RETURN to our FATHER, and be about HIS BUSINESS!


And, in the meantime, just maybe, we can also learn the boundaries on minding our own! (Matthew 7:3) 


Selah …..

A Word from YeHoVaH ELOHIM

This is what The LORD GOD; YeHoVaH Elohim wants to say to HIS PEOPLE this morning;




This “Corona” must bow to the Stripes of Yeshua Ha Messiach! Stop fearing it! There is NO CROWN ABOVE YESHUA!!!


Stop accrediting this pitiful “weapon” with the death of my saints! Pick up your faith and declare that BY HIS STRIPES YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED! I will heal ALL who STAND BY FAITH on THAT WORD!!!! NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER! Unless you willingly succumb to it! Or let fear rob you of your faith!!!! PUT UP THE SHIELD OF FAITH, GET THAT ARMOR ON! WAR HAS BEEN DECLARED!


This foul weapon of the enemy against the United States has come to destroy, to plunder, and to give power to those under his influence! It has come to wear out the saints – because they are FINALLY beginning to awaken!!!


BUT - I have allowed it to even exist - as judgment - to wake up my people, and to cleanse the Body of The Anointed One – most of whom have not yet walked in that Anointing!


Please understand that this foul, man-made disease, this literal weapon that was formed against MY Nation of grafted in ones, has NO POWER OVER MY OWN!!!


SO - Those who have willingly succumbed to it have done so out of weariness, if they had not succumbed to this disease they would have found something else to which they would succumb. Plus the enemy is desperate and always listening. STOP giving him open doors through which to attack you! Stop running from and looking for this disease behind every rock, sniffle, cough and pain!


Please hear Me on this - I will not make any of my servants stay, who are not willing to fight. I need warriors in this hour. Warriors on the scene, and warriors called intercessors behind the scenes!

This is like the situation with Gideon. Those who had no courage went home,of their own accord. And those who were foolish and presumptive were sent home, by the Word of the Lord to Gideon! Some of my servants are being called home, because they are worn out. It is time for others to take the baton! Stop putting your trust in people and TRUST IN MY WORD. I DO NOT LIE!!!!


I Am not playing anymore. I Am not waiting anymore. I Am ready to establish MY Kingdom on the Earth. I Am going to decimate the false religions which have taken on The Name of My Son! DO NOT CALL YOURSELF CHRISTIAN - “Little Anointed One” - IF YOU HAVE NO INTENTION OF LETTING MY SPIRIT CLEANSE AND ANOINT YOU”!


Get IN STEP with My Spirit and My Will, or just Get Out entirely. Choose LIFE. On purpose. By Faith. Or Choose death by default, procrastination, laziness, apathy, negligence and just generally refusing to die to the flesh, in order to LIVE by my Spirit. IN THIS SEASON THE JUSTIFIED SHALL LITERALLY LIVE BY FAITH! BUT NO MORE PLAYING CHURCH FOR THOSE CALLED BY MY NAME!!!!


Those who will not attend MY WORD and MY SPIRIT shall succumb to one of the many offers of death which surround them! MY ANOINTED ONE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE!And NO ONE enters My Kingdom apart from HIM! If you are not walking in the spirit, then you are walking in the flesh. If you will not heed my voice, then you will be constantly confused by the voice of the world, the flesh and the devil, because they are one entity. The contrary trinity.


The enemy of mankind is first and foremost MY enemy! He has no power that I have not allowed, and which YOU my prime creation has not given him! But in rebellion he has taken all of My patterns and perverted them to offend and insult Me. Though I have given him room to return, I've given him time, and I have given My people the Anointing, Authority and Power to keep him subjected to them, My people keep giving their power to him, and he continues his stubborn rebellion! But not for much longer! I am ready to come and do all out war with him, and put him, once and for all, in his own place, the kingdom of utter darkness.


I have not done so because he was also a precious creation of mine, whom I cherished. I have been long suffering. I have given mankind the Power to overcome him. So that maybe, even he might repent and return to My service in humility.


But that has not happened. So I am gathering my forces. I am cleansing the earth of the weaker ones, the ones who won't endure the warfare that is coming. In mercy I am letting them come home to me. They have run as much of their race as they are willing and able to run. But many of them have not been able to find the strength and courage in Me, which I provided, nor have they found the help in My leadership which they needed! So I am removing much of that leadership as well.


That is also more of an act of mercy than it is judgment. Their judgment fell upon my Son. So though they have failed in many ways, their clinging to His Grace has brought them to me, if a bit earlier than planned.


But those of you who wish to see this through, those of you who wish to finish this race, those of you loyal ones who are determined to lay crowns at the feet of My Son, Who I have set upon My Throne, at my Right Hand, to My Joshuas and Calebs - I say this;



















Listen carefully My dear children, YOU, not the enemy, not this frail viral construction, not any power known to man, YOU have the POWER of LIFE AND DEATH. YOU have MY Anointing, Authority and Spirit at your disposal. But YOU must come to Me, submit to My Spirit and LEARN FROM HIM how to put that power to use effectively! Do it now! Come now! Run! Do not walk! Do not hesitate.


If you fall while running toward me I will pick you up! Just come. I am not looking for the perfect! I am looking for those who are willing, ready, to be perfected! COME TO ME, ALL WHO ARE WEARY AND HEAVY LADEN, FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS, FOR MY YOKE IS EASY, AND MY BURDEN IS LIGHT! Where I guide I provide. And I will strengthen you for the battle ahead. And I will bring you home in honor, when you have finished YOUR race to the full.


Come my people. Do not delay. Do not resist another day!

I need you to walk in My love, and don My Power from above!

I ask that you lay down that flesh, and enter My beloved Rest!

I've sent My Spirit to guide you on, but you must follow My dear Son!

His Spirit and Anointing True, is all you need to strengthen you!

So awake My Body, come to life, lay aside your excuses, put down that strife;

and run with patience the rest of your race, so that one day you can rest, and see My Face!


Your Loving, Abba

Pitiful or Powerful?

Pitiful or Powerful, what will it be?

Since that choice is really up to me!

Will I Trust in the God that sets me free,

or just be driven by whatever I think I see?


Will I get up each morning and seek His face;

so I can draw upon His strength, and LIVE by His grace?

Will I let His Spirit set my pace,

so that I can find His strength to run this race?


Will I fully determine just Who Is in charge,

As the forces of life, onto my path, do barge?

Will I make Him my captain, or just another sarge?

Can I trust Him enough, to live this life at large?


Which "me" will I be, confident, or confused?

How much do I want Him? Will I wake up, or snooze?

Decision time TODAY - which path will I choose,

trust Him and win, or falter and lose?


We can't have it both ways, we must finally decide!

We can't walk in power, and let pity ride!

We can't mourn our fate, cast His goodness aside,

while we procrastinate, in arrogant pride!


The time's not tomorrow, nor is it “someday”,

we don't have the time to just wallow away,

We know that He's coming, it could be today!

Will we be like the virgins who caused their delay?


Standing with the redeemed, but running low on oil,

because they've slept in the time they should've toiled?

Now they'll have to go seeking some, full of turmoil,

while the others go in, to enjoy the spoil?


Worse! Maybe curled up, somewhere in a beddie,

still sucking a thumb, and hugging a teddy?

Or will I be the faithful one, with lamp trimmed and ready,

with a full cruse of oil, prepared to stand steady?


Prepared to wait on Him, with a grand expectation;

while faithfully yearning for His visitation,

with a heart that is brim-full of anticipation?

Or am I still just planning the next vacation?!


Asleep in the shadows, lies a giant called “Church”,

while sleeping, she's let His world get in a lurch!

She's behaved shamefully, His Name she's besmirched.

And now between two paths she's pitifully perched.


We must now wake up! We must make up our minds!

We must find His will and get off our behinds!

We must shake the fear off, lose the whimper and whine,

And get on with His program of letting Light Shine!


He's coming back someday, for His glorious Bride;

Not some lazy tramp that's laid His Word aside!

Nor a religious hypocrite that's hiding her pride;

Only the Faithful  & Grateful will catch that last ride!


So, will we join His fight to redeem the lost,

Or just keep on sleeping until we're covered in moss?!

Will we ever decide Who's really the boss?

We must count our blessings, and also the cost!


We must finally, totally get with His team!

The old ways we must lay aside, it would seem,

if we want to be part of this masterful dream,

The Father's business to finish, this world to redeem!


So get off the tuckus, lift up a song;

This pitiful whining's gone on way too long!

We'd best get to choosing before time's all gone;

Pitiful or Powerful? WE MUST FINALLY CHOOSE ONE!
