FALL of AMERICA


.

IRAQUI ISIS REFUGEES

Here is my response to the latest Hagman & Hagman Report radio broadcast. I highly respect the knowledge and insight you all share with us.
.
The body of Christ, today and (all throughout Biblical history), has taken a Que Sera Sera“ attitude. It really saddens me that few pastors recognize the need for total and drastic act of repentance and a 180 degree turnaround. This happened because of the lukewarm Christian influences of our parents and grandparents who should have changed the course of our nation by opposing the evil trend and the aggressive advances of the atheistic. They succeeded in the banning of prayer in schools and the passing of the Roe VS Wade bill.

All this has precipitated more and more rampant immorality, sex-trafficking, the casual and unprecedented murder of unborn children, pornography and every other abomination condemned by Yahweh God in the law He gave to Moses. We’ve habitually shirked the responsibility to confront and deal with personal and corporate sin, with no concern about the consequences which will affect our children and grandchildren/ We shouldn’t be concerned about loss of our material possessions when the Tsunami of chastisement comes, but breaking covenant with our Holy and gracious Heavenly Father. We have slapped Him in His face with our disrespect and hatred..

For the life of me, I wonder where is compassion and concern for the next generation? Many of us will be dead and/or in glory, enjoying the perfection of heaven, but what about our precious children and grandchildren. I ask all you married men. It is your responsibility as commanded by God to nurture and protect the interests and safety of your wives and children. I pray Holy Spirit will convict every Christian man in America to start fasting and praying in your heavenly language so Holy Spirit will guide your choices as turbulent economic, social and terrestrial changes threatens to transform our lives as we know it today. No doom and gloom here, just analyzing and reminding everyone.

2 Chron. 7:14, If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

God’s “true” children are more than able to impact and change the direction and destiny of this nation, but there are many pious “macho” pastors who delight to see the chastisement and annihilation of the American people), which includes precious children, the elderly, disabled and “good” non-believers). Other brethren who are buried in temporal and tangible endeavors, lusts and/or of activities which have no beneficial value to humanity,(or to their families and communities) have little interest in God’s modern prophets dire warnings to repent and change our ways!

aftermath of HiroshimaAmerica could soon look like this picture of Hiroshima after the first atomic bomb hit. This time, Iran, China or Russia would be glad to be the first to nuke  an American city.
I watch, with great sorrow and anxiety for some inkling of resolve by the church to shift the degree of severity and totality of the approaching tempest. Just research what is happening with Greece . We are next! Why am I so passionate to share this with the body of Christ? Because Jehovah desires mercy and not judgement.

Hosea: 6:6 Therefore I have hewn them in pieces by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of My mouth; And the judgments on you are like the light that goes forth. 6For I delight in loyalty rather than sacrifice, And in the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings. 7But like Adam they have transgressed the covenant; There they have dealt treacherously against Me.…

Many ask, “How could a loving God be so cruel? Why would God punish with such unquenchable wrath and completeness,”?

The main problem with us is we’ve had so many blessings, are so wealthy and have everything imaginable at our disposal that we believe in that “entitlement” mentality. Our godly forefathers waged a great warfare and paid a great price for our emancipation from the tyranny of England’s monarchy.

I happen to love America, as also my dearest friend, Pastor Augusto Perez shared on His blog radio broadcast. We are both of Latino descent and from the “old” school of life. Augusto’s’ father had to take his family quickly to escape the threatening tyranny of Fidel Castro in Cuba, when he took office on February 16, 1959..Fidel’s ruthless coup d’etat crushed any idea of Cuban families to live and enjoy their former lives! .

In comparison, my father, Teofilo Ferrer Cepeda, a dark-skinned, soft-spoken Puerto-Rican and gifted entrepreneur, sought to give his family a better life in America. He came from a dirt poor background, teaching himself fine skills in graphic art and design. His faith and dreams were rewarded by the great God, Jehovah that he faithfully served, My father taught us to revere the earth God gave us, to have integrity and love hard work. He believed that when attaining wealth or provision through honest, hard work, God would reward.

God ordained work and Adam and Eve were encourage to tend the Garden of Eden. Honest hard work, living withing ones means and appreciation of every blessing and provision seems to be a lost art.

I keep hearing my brethren declare, “God is in control.” And yes He is, but He has also given His people and everyone on earth the responsibility and privilege of choice. The body of Christ can choose whether to say “Whatever, Lord” and make no effort to provide for the widows, the orphans and the broken and set the precedence of righteousness and justice for the oppressed. That neglect is what has brought our Holy and righteous Father to the edge of boiling rage… and that volcano of rage is about to explode!

If only pastors and shepherds would follow the lead of the great Biblical leaders, like Moses, Nehemiah, Ezra and King Jehoshaphat who incepted great reformation and revival during their tenures.It is imperative that God’s modern prophets sound the trumpet and warn the people, but we should have sought first God and studied Nehemiah’s model and direction.

The hour is late. God only knows if America will be here tomorrow.Not

Note: to my loyal readers, please forgive  the typos and errors on my latest post. Something strange has happened ALL day, myriad distractions, and especially this wordpress program seems to have a mind of its own! After going back to read my post, I was horrified to find fragmented sentences, misspellings, and grammar errors, after  wordpress was supposed to recognize and have the typos in RED I don’t know what’s going on, but this looks very bad for an accomplished writer. I hope tthis time, you have a better-edited  revision. Shalom!

The TRUE Gift of Christ Empathy


DSCN2164

Brother Chad and I are discussing the great deception and delusion that have taken over some. Immediately, Holy Spirit reminded me, may the body of CHRIST worship Him, in spirit & in truth. Many cannot decipher the difference between knowing His word intellectually VS abiding in the Vine, Holy Spirit’s presence. This is the deficit-famine Chad mentioned in his post. Some brethren in my own circle have tremendous head knowledge about God, but deny the power there of. They think because they were trained in Bible school, studied the word of God under lukewarm pastors teaching watered-down Gospels, (which neither save, deliver or transform) and you can tell just by looking at their miserable, frowning faces how much of Christ they reflect!.

Abba Jehovah commanded us to “serve our God-Father-Creator with joy and thankfulness!” Duet 28:47

DSCN1796Singing with joyfullness to the Lrd, my wonderful Father and savior!

They are swollen with their pastor’s doctrines that are very close to the truth, but still far from what is righteous in Yashuah’s eyes!!

Yashuah Jesus  said to a Pastor Richard Sigmund, his book, My Time In Heaven” that “My people have lost their compassion. Compassion is thing I desire of my people” Jesus had such love for people that He groaned in His spirit when they rejected  him. Mat 23:37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.”
http://www.christianbook.com/…/rich…/9781603741231/pd/741231

In the description section of  the book, I found sarcastic, scoffing reviews from one person,  but whether Pastor’s experience is authentic is not  the crux. The  crux is empathy and action, like the Good Samaritan! There are too few who seek not true empathy, (which is weeping deep in your spirit and wanting to ease the pain…and doing so) This is TRUE compassion Yashuah speaks of. We must be very careful not to place more effort, focus and dedication to our jobs, businesses, ministries or even our own personal revelation which we hope to convince others! (I’m writing quickly as Holy Spirit is leading me).

Being so inundated with prayer requests and seeing so many in need, I wept much  during my special time with my Heavenly Father. I praised, ministered & thanked Him for the multitude of His blessings during my 33 years in Him. I also wept in deep anxiety about the suffering and torment which is soon coming upon the earth by a small group of people who delight to kill off most of the population!  Not conspiracy theory but just check out the ever-growing  statistic of precious people dying of Cancer from pesticides on our foods, GMO and horrendous quality of oxygen in our air. How could  anyone with compassion not grieve for humanity?.

If only they could glimpse what the enemy has planned for the world Jesus clearly warned us in Mat 24:21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now–and never to be equaled again.

And Luke 21:26, Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

So I bless you all as I close and anyone who wishes to engage a living, loving and transforming Savior, free free to contact me. There is a risen Savior who came to seek that which was lost!

I pray that we all have ears to hear and allow Holy Spirit to  receive what He has to say and not our pastors or our own personal experiences! Ask Father to show you how, when and to whom to bestow random acts of kindness and mercy, (seeking no reward) , for our reward is in Heaven! Let us be like that compassionate Samaritan who  had empathy, stopped to minister aid and brought restoration to a half dead man!
God bless you as you accumulate treasures in Heaven that will not fade not pass away.

SHUT UP and FIGHT


SHUT UP and FIGHT
Nehemiah’s Warfare Strategy and an urgent call to God’s people
June 25, 2015

The atmosphere was charged, highly charged. The emotions, actions and lifestyles of the anguished exiles seethed like a raging cauldron. Marriages were in tatters, leadership was corrupt and everyone pretty much did whatever they wanted to do, as in the period of the Judges of Israel. Wives were being divorced for any reason and no respect for the lives of babies and tiny children. God’s people had lived so long in shame, rebellion and ignorance of God’s covenant, only a remnant remembered the great glories of God and His majestic miracles sweetness and blessings of their forefathers.; I delight to share with  the body of Christ the glorious  legacy and  leadership of Nehemaih.

Nehemiah was:

1. Devoted to God in a covenant relationship
2. Empathetic and intuitive regarding what was going on around him
3. Aware and deeply concerned about the condition of his people, the Jews
4. Idealistic: remembering the great former glory of Israel
5 Was a servant-leader whose concern and love for his people far outweighed his position as cup bearer to King Artaxeres

Nehemiah has always been one of my heroes because his mind-set revolved around his relationship with the Lord. He was a gracious and humble man, bringing his anguished concerns first to God after worshiping and reminding God of the former glory of God’s people. I love Nehemiah’s idealism. The squalor, despair and restlessness of the people could not dissuade him from remembering the beauty of Yahweh’s holiness, God’s blessings of prosperity and honor and the royal history of God’s kings.

Modern prophets tell us that it is too late for America, but I know there is still hope for the body of Christ. The times we are in are similar to God’s people living in the era of Ezra and Nehemiah. Yashuah, Jesus must and will judge His church first because she is to be His bride without spot or wrinkle. Sin and every form of iniquity slithers in the undercurrent like that serpent who tempted Adam and Eve in the garden. If we are not deliberate and sincere about daily repentance, we will indeed become like a clogged filter. Holy Spirit cannot flow freely!.

The greatest problem is the leadership. I’ve shared in detail the necessity of godly, spirit-filled and Spirit-led men and women who aspire to emulate the great heroes of the Bible. If a man is not nourishing his own household first, he can’t be fit to rule any territory. Order is not  legalistic, but required to for God’s plans and destiny to be successful.

How did America get to this terrible level of depravity and utter shame when she had such a glorious start? It all started with the two death knells to our nation, Roe VS Wade ion January 22, 1973 and when prayer was banned from schools on June 25, 1962.

. During times of great prayer intercession with weeping and deep sorrow,  I’ve asked Father God, “where did all this mess begin? Where were the backbone of God’s people? (who should have had the courage to oppose the murder of innocent unborn)” . This  present generation must now aggressively cry out in weeping, fasting and repentance for our parents and grandparents who did nothing! We are the generation who holds the keys to the fate of America.

One reason Christian America has lost her way is also  the incorrect handling the God’s word. So you say that you know your Bible? What did Yashuah Jesus say about His Fathers word?. There have been dangerous discrepancies in the translation of God’s word beginning as far as the earliest manuscripts. How needful to have an accurate knowledge of the Greek and Hebrew text and deep study and meditation by the counsel of Holy Spirit. If we think we can discern , understand and apply God’s word just by reading any translation, we are sorely mistaken and  deluded. We’ll also open ourselves to great deception by satan who is eager and ready to manipulate our desires by our own or  a false prophet’s translation-revelation

It may be to late for our government, but we have but a few seconds, (in His holy time clock) to make a very last minute difference in the midst of the body of Christ, by evangelizing and mentoring. new converts.
American Traitors

Shocking reports of young people leaving their homes and security, (as well as youth from many other nations) to enlist and fight with Isis should cause great concern for Christian parents, teachers and leaders  and to question the validity of their “passed down faith and The Gospel’s authority. No other faith or religion can compare to Christ’s atonement on the cross for all humanity. His victorious resurrection transcends every other religious leader, (of who all   are nothing but dry bones)! No one can compare to the glorious Christ…Yashuah Hamashia

I find it astonishing that in ISIS ever-widening swath spreading out like a cancer across the middle east and Africa, our young are mesmerized, drawn to and ready to die for this cause! Reminds me of the Pied Piper, weaving a spell over all who come within ear shot. Could it be that the grizzly,  butchering video games no longer satiate their lust for blood, torment and death? Truly it seems as if those beastly demon angels tethered to the four corners of the Euphrates River were released, unleashing a venomous drug into the very veins of their spirit.

It’s staggering for me to imagine this new young breed of death warriors who prefer and glorify the masters of beading small children, burning alive prisoners and burning everything in sight!. It’s not enough to take slaves captive but to instill terror and fear. Quite a far cry from  kids aspiring to minister compassion, relief healing as benevolent missionaries and medical volunteers. Where have our nation and leaders gone wrong and how can we fix this nightmare?

Shut Up and Fight
Shut up and fight. There is no other recourse but to go back to the basics. We must go back to where our godly leaders, Nehemiah, Ezra, Moses, Joshuah, King Jejoshaphat and later in America, President George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and our founding fathers. We must get back to reading of the law. The leaders must get on their faces, fasting and weeping before God in repentance..

Nehemiah was staunch enough to declare,  “Set a watch against them”

Nememaih didn’t shirk or get angry. Hr surveyed the crisis of Jerusalem’s broken walls and the destitution of his people, the Jews and gave his petition to Jehovah God..Nehemiah’s prayer was heard and he had favor of the King to go about and complete the mission God had called him to do. At every turn of danger or threat, Nehemiah was at his game, praying, directing and delegating duties to the people as they were rebuilding the breaches in the wall. When satan used his pawns Tobiah and Sanballat and the Arab to distract the rebuilding efforts and to stop the work, and even  sought to assassinate Nehemiah in a private place), Nehemiah stood firm in his calling in the center of God’s perfect will. The people respected him and listened to everything he said.

Nehemiah did not read the newspaper or listen to Hannity’s or Bill O’Brian reports and say, Oh my, this is awful. They are beheading little children and other atrocities.” He got right down to the nitty gritty and ordered the people to gird their weapons and defend their communities, homes and families!

It looks like most leaders and even good pastors are saying, “ They’re coming to America. We need to be ready. Be Ready..FOR GOD”S SAKE….for what?

When my father was stationed in German with my mother, younger sister and I, he planned to bring his family to America where opportunities were so we could have a better life than he did as a poor child living in rural Puerto Rico in the early 1940. Were he alive and healthy today and seeing all the atrocities committed by ISIS, Boko Haram, the brotherhood and the Hamass, he would get angry and involved. God’s people should not be passive to just accept all this evil and do nothing about it!

On Hal Lyndsay’s latest program tonight, he shared scriptures about Jesus telling his men to go and buy a sword. Do we think God is pleased when we proclaim piously that persecution is coming without having a strong game plan to oppose a horrifically unfair and brutal enemy. Do we think that it’s okay that the elderly, holocaust victims, disabled and little children deserve to fall prey to this demonic  plague!!! And not even mentioning putting our families at unnecessary risk? Some of us have counted the cost and are ready to die joyously for Christ. But I beg to say that taking a passive stance and just laying down and letting Isis mow us like dandelion weeds is foolish and EVIL!.

God is ushering Christian America into “Awake and on Call”prayer, fasting and intercession. The battle is not ours but the Lords’ and He is calling His people to occupy before Yashuah  Jesus comes. We’d better be getting our wedding gown ready and pure and have the sense to resist our enemy!

Traumatized refuges interviewed by relief workers and Christian ministries report how Isis ambushes a village, town or city and residents flee in terror. Families and businesses have been left behind and some cities are left in rubble! . Imagine the trauma of members of established and thriving communities loosing everything but the clothes on their back! The number of refugees are now in the many thousands.I don’t think we here in a America can imagine the utter chaos and misery of having no control, no advocate ( the United Nations is useless and worthless). I’ve wept too many tears during my  prayer times with Lord and He impressed upon my spirit that much of what is happening could have been averted by prayer and fasting .

After hearing so many horrific reports and weeping and sending my prayers to the throne room, many thoughts compass me about the horrific suffering of hapless citizens and our brothers and sister in Christ. We shouldn’t ignore the demonic threat or be casual about Genocide. This is outright outrage an evil enemy which must be faced squarely and aggressively and  dismantled.

They’re Coming to America

Imagine this very possible scenario. You own and live on a ranch in Texas, or you live in a small town on or near the border of Mexico. Disturbing rumors swirl about decapitated bodies being found. Mayhem arises and everyone is terrified. Many families travel to family members in other states. Then shocking reports come about churches and synagogues being burned with the people in them. Panic arises, yet our leaders downplay the severity of the crisis! Persecution is coming to America, in fact, it has already claims the lives of hundreds here. Nothing will be done, unless the church seeks God ‘s divine and superior strategy to oppose a barbaric and relentless enemy who will stop at nothing to destroy every last one of the Jews and Christians.

Islamic State militants

I’m no military strategist, have no political preference or agendas, I’m just n obscure woman of God, journalist and song-writer, sharing God’s truth through journaling (beginning as a sensitive teenager impassioned about social issues and humanitarian issues). It is time for my brothers and sisters in Christ to open your eyes and face the truth of the upcoming slaughter of the innocent. Now is the time for action. Now is the time to seriously and purposely address the enemies of the cross. And that is exactly what this battle is about. This demonic army is dead-set against the Gospel of Christ.

My vision is to see pastors, rabbi’s, priests,, sheriffs, and law enforcement coming together in one accord to seek Holy Spirit’s direction and guidance in the efforts of rallying devout and courageous prayer warriors and fasting teams. We can’t depend on our politicians to grab the bull by it’s horns. Neither can we trust our government because all but a small handful are God-minded and not money-minded. We can depend on Abba Jehovah’s holy, wise and victorious militia not bent on sloppy revenge and vigilante  actions, but on seeking to win some of Isis who can be redeemed and  overcoming the  unrepentant!Tthat is how we can win this war.

I wonder how my friends and family would react if I were to post pictures of a particular little angel in a fluffy party dresses…cut in half! What would you do, turn away, ignore and forget about it or pray like you’ve never prayed before? As a compassionate journalist led by Christ’s love, maybe that’s what it will take for you to make your stand. Don’t think for ne minute that because we live in America, Land of the free that we won’t soon also  be cut down, our children murdered before our eyes and then be beheaded ourselves! God help me. God help you. God help America

There’ hope. Let’s follow Nehemiah’s suit and show the kingdom of hell who has the real power!!

TWEAK ME, (Every Idle Word)

Tweak Me (Every Idle Word)
February 14, 2014

A Life of Tweaking
In the process of professional music recording, the work must go through many tweakings. I start out laying basic lead vocal, acoustic guitar played with a click tract. I take the rough draft home and work on harmony. Then I get ideas for motifs, which I then give to my lead guitarist, bassist and drummer. We all meet for a recording session. Then comes the artsy part. My producer-engineer and husband Mark sit together and listen back to the tracks. We listen carefully for any notes I sang flat or sharp, any bad bass notes or any dissonance. We take home the track again, listen and continue to fine-tune the song. By the time it’s ready for mastering, we have tweaked and tweaked until the mixes sound radio ready! It can be an arduous process, but joyously rewarding. I’ve learned so much recording all of six original CDs and three cover ones. After over twenty solid years of professional recording, I can say I’m a veteran songwriter-producer but still always evolving to ever higher musical heights.

Thankfully, my hunger for excellence has spilled into the area of my personal spiritual growth as worship leader-songwriter, journalist and soul sculptor desiring to see glorious transformation within the body of Christ. Upon awakening each morning, I start meditating about Father God searching my heart, testing my anxious thoughts and showing me if there is any evil. Psalm 139:23 &24. I ask Him to help set a guard over my lips. Psalm 141:3 I daily have to yield and give Him permission to tweak me, my actions and even my deepest unconscious response. Why am I so concerned?

The hour is late the world is getting darker and more evil by the day. Atrocities beyond the most barbaric horror movies ever created are occurring everywhere. During my prayer time, I’m even more aware of the lateness and urgency f the time I’m in and how I must be salt and light. You and I are ambassador of peace and reconciliation and a king and a priest!

Sloppy Agape or a penchant for priestliness

In one of my earlier blogs, Sloppy Agape or Penchant for Priestliness, I focused on living an excellent life in Christ. I hope Tweak Me zeroes in about the reality of the demonic realm violently belching out profound evil attacks worldwide and in every area of peoples lives. This demonic assault is so powerful, unless God’s people get it together in unity, we will be overcome by death and destruction. This is not to scare anyone but to show how we must approach the demonic dilemma. We must be unified in love and fit for the master’s use. It has grieved me to hear about so much friction, strife and dissension amongst my brethren. Being brought up in a multi-cultural family, a hard-working, gregarious Puerto-Rican father and stoic, moody German mother, was a cause for many difficult times for my three sisters and I. It was here in family that I learned how important diplomacy, a desire to quickly forgiveness is essential to be emotionally and spiritually at peace. I willingness to keep communication lines open is golden!

I want to be closer to God and be the expression of his kindness, patience, mercy and grace. Rather than just read God’s word, I desire to meditate on it, so it can become a beautiful part of me. I’ve learned that it’s not enough to just read the word, but to ask Holy Spirit to bring it to life in our spirits. Here is where the transformation occurs!

Jesus discourse in the Gospels was penetrating and not easily forgettable. His words cut like a knife as he spoke in parables or true events with a conviction so strong, many were transformed forever! The framework of family and society is so fragile and dependent upon us abiding in Him, (the vine) that without our meticulous interaction and intervention, society will cease to exists as we know it! We must work hard to overcome rivalry, impatience, frustration, strife and anger by asking for God’s help. We must discipline ourselves to daily by gazing into the Holy Spirit mirror. Only then can we receive the help we need to be the overcomers and transformers of our world!

Addressing confect has always been one of my weak points I hate confrontation because usually it is with someone intent upon imposing their will or perspective on mine and usually ends up with hard words said.. Sometimes even just angry, closed body language and angry facial grimaces make my stomach ill.

The past few days while going about my usual mundane chores, I kept thinking about the phrase… ..every idle word .I knew God wanted me to elaborate on how our speech affects our lives and the lives of all in our world. .All week, friends and loved ones ask me to stand with them in prayer about their frustration with their chaotic family unhappy spouses and kids and unfruitful ministries. Sins of the flesh are usually at work.

I grapple with my own share of issues with my husband that we must work out together. Sometimes during an argument with my husband, (thankfully we don’t cuss each other or disrespect each other), but his body language and disrespect may anger me. My voices gets high and he will walk right away, refusing to talk with me unless my voice gets lower. After the argument, we wonder what happened. I always soul search and ask God to show me how I contributed negatively to the situation. With that in mind, I know that communication entails a delicate blend of respect, self-control and patience. We have much work to do together to navigate the atmosphere of resolving our hard issues. One thing for sure, we both know that we must forgive and hug each other sincerely, so we can both go to sleep with a clear conscience! Resolving conflict and forgiving should enter the equation whether we have a conflict with our spouse, children, co-workers or neighbors. Holding on to anger will never set us free to receive the peace and blessing father has for us. We should always soul search to see if there was something we said or did that would have positively resoled the issue. Sometimes our lives or relationships are unfruitful not because of doing bad things but because of not doing the right thing!
I love Joyce Meyer’s ministry because she focuses often on teachings about cultivating fruitful love walks. I love to compare the concept of our love walk with my planting of my vegetable garden this past summer. There are very deliberate things one has to do to have a garden that produces lush produce. One can’t expect to just plant the seeds and forget about them. First came the tilling of the hard, lifeless soil, then adding and mixing organic fertilizer , more tilling and then rest and wait. After a few days, the small seedlings growing in small containers were transplanted carefully into their place in the soil. Certain plants would grow and take much space so they had to be positioned with that in mind so they wouldn’t overcrowd those plants which took less room. To the avid gardener or professional farmer, nurturing their crop is a prized and precious endeavor. We should look at it in the same we do growing fruitfully in God’s vine!
The power of love is the fortifying agent we produce, (after learning spiritual warfare skills.). What good is being an loving child of God everyone gets along with, but you’re bound,, miserable and fearful and you can’t help anyone be set free!? Responding positively in faith when faced with trials, cris and tragedy is what Father desires in his people. Perseverance and humor assuages the burden of grief and difficult times.

We all love the gift of grace. We do something wrong, treat others roughly, are harsh or condemning, then confess our sin in a casual, unconcerned manner to God. Some of us continually offend or aggressively confront our brethren with our newly revealed and illuminated Biblical truths or growth. An offended brother or sister makes us feel guilty and so we confess to God, but we rarely look in the mirror and see our error. We are just like the man who looks in the mirror briefly and walks away unchanged! James 1:23

Approved and Disapproved workers

Jesus gave a serious rebuke that every idle word we speak shall be revealed on the day of judgement. After an argument, we may say, “Oh, I didn’t mean to say that.” But it came right out of our hearts. Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.,” Luke 6:48.
Jesus says that a good tree is known by its good fruit. If we are bearing good fruit then good things should come from our hearts to our mouths. I believe more pastors, teachers and prophets should be teaching their people about the necessity fo bearing good fruit and abiding in the vine to illuminate the glory of our Father! I pray the body of Christ meditates on the concept of the becoming that beautiful tree planted by the waters that bears fruit even in the desert and famine times. Let us not live our lives casually, but purposefully. Let’s refrain from saying aloud things that ought not be even thought of!

Paul writes to his spiritual son, Timothy about the analogy of the holy house God is building with Jesus as the chief cornerstone. Some of us are vessels of gold, silver, wood or clay. Some are for the Lord’s common use and some for His special occasions! Wouldn’t we all love to be a vessel that is for His special use? Not all of us will get a mansion in glory and many righteous crowns. Only those who have surrendered themselves and their flesh will receive the best rewards. Paul reminds us to run the race unhindered and for the prize. There will be many who get into heaven by the skin of their teeth and get a log cabin and a cotton tunic! Others,(like missionaries who gave all, even their own lives for the lost) are having their opulent mansions build right now! It is our choice while we are alive on earth to produce as much fruit as we can. That doesn’t mean completing projects successfully, graduating at the top of the class, maintaining a strong internet presence or being the most wealthy CEO of a corporation. It means preaching the good news to the lost and broken and discipline-grooming people for kingdom service and filling practical needs like food, shelter and provision. God loves people, not things and projects

In participating in the building of of Father’s kingdom, we must be very precise and focused. Let’s fine tune our reactions and habits of communication and ministry buy putting off contentious, strife, envy, wrath, pride critical and legalistic spirits. Whoever names Christ as their savior must put away (and be aware of the tendency to have) iniquity. Strife is a real killer of unity in the body and good relationships and we should avoid strife at all costs. We are called to live at peace with all men.

God’s sons and daughters must be perfect…perfect as Father is perfect. Perfection in this context is not the sense of never being wrong, making mistakes, having a strong disagreement with someone, but having an awareness and desire to be the best we can even in our thoughts, speech and actions. Let us focus on nurturing our spiritual garden, our hearts, with wonderful and edifying things.

At the Bema Seat

To close, I wanted to share on my recent meditating of Rev 20:12 , I’m humbled by reverential fear reading about the Bema Seat . It has caused me to remain vigilant and watchful for demonic attacks which would make me soppy in my love walk. The scene of the Bema Seat on Judgement day for all people reminds me that our whole lives will be wrapped up in a nutshell within the pages of our book of life. There will be no time to take back anything we’ve done or make excuses to God. Let’s seriously meditate on being prepared, in true intimacy with Father-Christ and having our relationships in order. Let’s put away all bitterness, resentment, unforgiveness and/or hate.

Imagine the deafening silence as the angels stand at attendance. As we are called up before the Lord. The books are opened…and another book is opened, The Book of Life. Just envisioning myself standing before Christ, (in this instance) as my judge, makes me tremble. I think about my own book in heaven chronicling every unconfessed thought, action and motivation.. All I can groan in prayer to Father is “help me, Lord.”and “more of You and less of me.”

Imagine, beloved, your own book in heaven. I pray that you and I will have few recorded negative incidents to be ashamed of. I pray that now, while we still have a little time, that we will start today tweaking our love walks and be fruitful in every good work! 2 Tim 2:21. Let us not say evil things about our president, wish that murderers and rapists all die or blast TV pastors and evangelists and their past indiscretions. We need to pray fervently that all men may receive Christ. Paul and Moses were both murderers, Two of the most infamous Muslim terrorists had a Damascus experience and received Christ as Savior and Lord!. We don’t know which enemies now are our friends and brethren in the future!

A Damascus Experience, Kamal Saleem

Father, help us to speak life-giving words and not look for the faults in others. Help us to discipline ourselves in meditating on how to have good fruit and to tweak our love walks even if we get along with everyone. Help us to have an attitude of gratitude for all people and to find the good in everyone. Help us also to pry for our enemies and those who persecute us because we don’t know will of them will be other brother or sister!

A New Life and Master. Walid Shoebat

God bless you as you ask Father, “Tweak us, Lord!

UNITY of the BRETHREN

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!  PSALM 133

Since a young girl I’ve always wanted to live happily with my sisters, get along with my classmates, have wonderful friendships and be obedient to my parents.  In that aspect,  I haven’t changed. I still want more than anything to be reconciled to all those in my circles.

Sadly, I’m noticing people are acting strange. I’m hearing about  rivalry,  jealous criticism and just plain being overly touchy, (thin-skinned).

Right on Facebook, I hear about people being “unfriended” without a reason and no communication! So, what is that all about?

My friends have  asked, What did I do?”

Obviously, the  person  who unfriended forgot about Jesus saying we must forgive our brother 70 times 70!  I’m hoping to remind myself and anyone that we shouldn’t diss  people for the smallest of reasons and if they did offend us, please tell me what I did. I would be more than happy to discuss and move forward in our relationship.

Let;’s also remember  that satan is the  accuser  of the brethren. He stands before Father to accuse us and his cohorts whisper lies or exaggerate  a small fault we have to make it bigger than it really is. We are all overwhelmed ( and forgetful) with family, jobs and especially the bad things happening around the world.  We need to stick together and give each other the benefit of the doubt. We can’t read each others’ minds and sometimes something we said or something we may have forgotten to do hurt or offended you.

Let’s all talk together in love and stay close , edify and strengthen each other, (as our LORD says)  Let’s get over ourselves and get on with tweaking each other in words of love, edifying and  proper, honest & loving communication! This is for anyone I may have “unknowingly offended:)  Blessings and LOVE to all.

Liberal Wisdom and Revelation
Journal Entry Saturday January 3, 2015

It is Saturday January third 2015…a new year. In March, it will be eight years dealing with the violent Dystonia spasms of my neck and throat. Mark and I have been back from out Missouri trip: attending Pastor Mel Bond’s miracle healing service. I had positive expectations of God’s creative manifestation. Having already read his powerful book on spiritual warfare and watching his You Tube healing videos, I knew him to be a soft-spoken and gracious man, not using hype to expound God’s greatness in healing. Besides the anticipation of meeting Pastor Mel in person, countless thoughts swirled in my mind. The usual, how could I be serving Father for so long and still be in miserable physical  torment despite continually declaring His healing words and taking authority over any negative thought, event or symptom. It was very frustrating to desire more of Holy Spirit and yet still suffering intensely.

Thus my continuing quest to understand the connection between my head knowledge and Father’s divine pathway to healing.

I meditate once again upon the much-read, but never fully revealed first chapter of Ephesians. Each time I reread it, I feel energized and my spirit illuminated. How can one not read the extravagant words without stopping to meditate upon God’s fatherly resplendent love and provision. He has given us every heavenly and earthly blessing to enjoy! What a book brimming with and explaining the nuances of our appointed divine treasures that father God has ordained to us since the beginning of time! I must admit that I have read the book of Ephesians hundreds of times since 1982, (the year of my salvation re-birth) and wonder why, at this late age, it strikes me in such a powerful way, so much so that I want to compose a tract and share it with the world!

Eph. 1: 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoptions as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself according to the good pleasure of His will.

Just this opening statement in itself brims over with divine  abundance! Chapter seven continues elaborating on Father’s glorious  extravagance. blessings

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of his grace which he made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself.

The first chapters of Ephesians is the introduction to the entry and adoption into the family of God! What a wonderful destiny to embrace and yet so many of God’s people are suffering in body and/or enduring poverty and need.

God’s people are now living in the great expanse of knowledge, written in Daniel 12:4)  In these present end times the church is also receiving the full brunt of satan’s rage. I ponder the irony of Paul’s declaring of the glorious destiny that every child of God receives once he follows Jesus Christ. God’s people are indeed perishing from lack of knowledge (there are many ways to perish). How can we awake and walk in that glorious destiny unless we are taught the word of God. Handling the word of God. 2 tim 2:15

Live call in Prayer hosted by Pastor Janet Ellsworth.

Each night at 12:30 am, I tune into CTN Christian network program You and Me, hosted by pastor Janet Ellsworth. This amazing woman of God always has an apt word for God’s children and she is always authoritative, yet enthusiastic and compassionate. As the night goes on and many callers share their burdens, I am astounded at how man are tormented with grievous bodily afflictions. Many call for a financial blessing and still many others ask for deliverance and demons to stop harassing them. It looks to me that the majority of God’s people have not received the pre-ordained blessings as cited in Ephesians and that their pastors, bishops, priests and rabbi’s have not taught them the very basics of the Christ life! Truly, it grieves my heart that so many brothers and sisters are greatly suffering. There are requests for healing and restoration of bodies as many are bedridden, house-bound and hospitalized. Surely, satan is  busy deploying his demons to hinder the gospel from going out into the streets by keeping God’s people in bondage. Something is seriously wrong!

We read in the Gospels’ how Jesus traveled from town to town and was deeply grieved at the wandering, suffering throngs that followed him for healing. During those times, people had little defense against demonic attack or possession. We see so many examples of people being enslaved by spirits of infirmity. We read that Jesus groaned in His spirit at the masses of the precious people scattered as lost sheep without a shepherd. He became known and glorified as the gentle healer.

Pastor Janet’s You and Me call in program is greatly needed. She begins the program with scripture and ends by ministering in compassionate prayer. People need to be taught the very basics of living in Christ,  (particularly, spiritual warfare) and to know how to defend themselves against satanic attack and oppression!  Many have no idea how demons got into their homes, attached themselves to their rebellious children or even how a voo-doo curse was placed by a angry, jealous neighbor or co-worker! This is reality. This is what God’s people are enduring. Sadly, many pastors have no idea how to cast out a demon or counsel and release an enslaved brother or sister out of bondage from a generational curse. This is incomprehensible. We must move away from the tepid Methodist and lukewarm, religious circles, because we are at war with a vicious and relentless enemy!

We read in the gospels about Jesus astounding (Exousia) authority! He promised that after He rose from the dead we would also be walking in both Dunimus) and w. Are pastors teaching the flock how to wield heavenly armament? How many Christians even know what dunimus and exousia are in the first place? I just recently heard a powerful teaching by John Paul Jackson. he elaborated on the power and authority we have in Christ. Yet, I see God’s people doing worse than non-believers! Again, I say something is wrong. We may have a testing period where we are struggling financially, but poverty and need should not be a permanent lifestyle, otherwise we’d be unable  to provide for the needs of the orphans, widows and the poor in our circle?

For the new year, pastors , church leaders and elders need to start getting with the program. It is time for the church to walk and abide in the great callings Paul taught in the book of Ephesians. He asks that we obtain the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God and that our eyes be enlightened about the hope of His calling! Wow, that sounds like divine living. In that kind of living, there is joy unspeakable and full of glory. We are able to endure difficult times and circumstances in full hope that Jesus is always with us, even in the storm! Are God’s people so full of joy that the world sees it and rejoices? Does our joyful countenance make people compelled to taste and see that the Lord is good and invite them to be their Lord and Savior?.

But the church is too busy going on a witch hunt and scrutinizing small matters of personal conviction rather than teaching the glorious and edifying ways of Christ.

We can no longer abide in a place of lack or ignorance regarding achieving the full array of the glorious promises Father wants us to have. He wishes us to be prosperous and in good health. Yes, there will be times of testing when we may have to endure sickness for a while for His glory, in expectation of healing and restoration. There will be times when Father will allow a satanic attack to buffet us (as in Paul’s case when he asked God three times to take away the thorn in his flesh) , but use it as spiritual muscle-building test so Father is glorified.

The church is directed to build up each other in faith, in gifts and in callings. Love and edifying are the chief goals, but next in line is successful spiritual warfare and knowing our adversary the devil is about seeking to destroy. . Love and wisdom must walk hand in hand.

This January begins a fresh year where I’ll enter the next phase of God’s divine destiny, power, wisdom and prosperity. We must not think prosperity is limited to financial wealth, but wholeness in every area). Father invites us to ask Him for wisdom and we must not stop at where we are, but ask Him to continue imbue us with dunamis (dynamite) wisdom and exousia (authoritative) wisdom!

God bless you!

But as she gets up from her bed, she relies upon Christ to empower her with strength and hope for the day! Her prayers are always answered as she tackles her house chores, outreach to the bedridden, elderly and dying and her creative endeavors.

fall,2014 128 my collection of Beautiful chokers
Quite by accident, Anita found a temporary respite from her violent facial twitching while repairing some old broken beaded chokers. She found that focusing upon the fine beadwork caused the muscles to cease pulling! The next thing she knew, she was spending more and more time at the craft stores purchasing unique, beautiful beads for her new passion!

Anita, 1989 Magna Cum Laude Brookdale Community College graduate whose major studies were in the humanities and social services, never imagined that a condition like Dystonia would lead her back to her childhood talent, designing!

fall,2014 139Anita believes with all her heart that her healing could be just a heart beat away. Though each day continues to be a struggle, God inspires her to keep the momentum going! She has learned through overcoming battle with chronic Lyme Disease, poverty, child abuse and domestic violence that in order to grow, one must re-invent themselves! Though she’s had to greatly curtail her performing and song-writing due to the spasms, her beaded jewelry design has taken her to new levels of exciting creativity and an opportunity to share her craft with the world. She also hopes to educate the public about Dystonia and movement disorders which are increasing. As yet the only treatments for Dystonia are Botox injections and DPS Deep Brain stimulation which Anita feels would not help her symptoms.

Anita resides with her husband and their cats in Browns Mills, NJ. She is also available to minister in music at your church or special event.
