         Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

         For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

         You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin; and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, “MY SON, DO NOT REGARD LIGHTLY THE DISCIPLINE OF THE LORD, NOR FAINT WHEN YOU ARE REPROVED BY HIM…

Image The other day a brother wrote and asked me if I was a prophet. I have come to the place where I believe that all the so-called “five-fold” gifts given unto men are all about Jesus and His graces given to all who are in Christ and not about us as individuals, but are rather about Him in us collectively. Like Paul said, “I can do ALL things through Christ who is my strength.” Was Paul extra special? Not according to his own words. So, I try not to limit Christ in me by saying, “I am a prophet, or I am teacher, or I am an apostle, etc.” No, “I am IN Christ and it is from there that HE can do all things,” IF I don’t limit Him by my flesh or preconceived ideas as to what my “calling” is. We limit Christ in us when we try…

The computer graphics in this video are a litte ‘hokey’, but hang in there. It illustates a beautiful and prophetic truth.

So the disciples went away again to their own homes.

But Mary was standing outside the tomb weeping; and so, as she wept, she stooped and looked into the tomb; 12 and she *saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. 13 And they *said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”
John 20:10

There was no reason for Mary to weep,or to seek the Living among the dead, as she was soon to find out. Praise the Most High God, for the Lord Jesus had risen.

Oh, the depth and richness of the incomparable Word of God. Our LORD left nothing to chance in His Word, it confirms and validates itself over and over in the most wonderful, even breathtaking and startling ways.
This picture of the 2 angels sitting at each end of the empty tomb of the Lord Jesus, is just such an example. The perfect illustration of the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant.

Consider this glorious paradox;

“And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony…” (Exo 25:22).

Do you see it? This is so amazing, how our Savior God confirms His Word. And we may now worship and commune with our Living Lord Jesus Christ in a new and living reality without a veil of separation hindering our way, but directly in the Holy of Holies.

Don’t YOU wash your pastor’s car?

Don’t you have your wife clean your pastor’s house, cause his wife is too busy?

Don’t you have your wife do the pastor’s laundry, and iron his shirts?

Don’t you have your wife watch his kids, so the pastor and his wife can have a date night out?

Don’t you wash your pastor’s car?

Don’t you mow the pastor’s grass?

Don’t you shine your pastor’s shoes?

Don’t you buy special gifts for your pastor’s birthday, pastor appreciation day, wedding anniversary, at Christmas time, Valentines Day, Father’s Day, Kwanza, Lent and Ramadan? You know how pastor likes to be eccumenical.

Don’t you pay all the tithes to the church to support the pastor so he and his family can live their best life now? Would a man rob God?

Aren’t you an armor bearer for the pastor, so that he can withstand the attacks of the enemy?

Hey, just what kind of a Christian are you anyway?

IS IT TIME TO THROW AWAY YOUR BIBLE?

Matthew 24:35.. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.(NASB)

No, it will never be time to throw away your bible. The Most High God’s Word is eternal. and the Secret of the Universe.
Even if the time should come, and I believe it will, that the evil forces now at play will come and rip your bibles from your hands, you may hide the LORD’S WORD in your hearts…..That my friends can never be taken away.

Psalm 119
11Your word I have treasured in my heart,
That I may not sin against You.(nasb)

A treasure is something to be guarded carefully, and stored against intrusion by those who would steal it. The words of our Most High God should be kept as such a precious thing and privilege to possess. Hidden and guarded from the enemy of our souls, who has always set about to steal, twist and pervert the Holy and Sacred Word of our LORD. That is what Satan has purposed from the beginning of time to deceive mankind.

To study earnestly the Word of the Eternal Creator God, Yahweh, is a sacred privilege he has given to his chosen, spirit filled servants, and to those who are seeking to know the Most High God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

John 8:31-32
The Truth Will Make You Free

31 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
(nasb)

Therefore, while there is yet time, store this precious treasure in your hearts to strengthen you in your daily life, and to preserve you in the perilous days ahead.

I have edited out names, and stories that I have permission to use at conferences, but not for public release. Hopefully this doesn’t impact sound too much. I have also divided the talk into four parts to make it manageable.

Special thanks to Andrew Thompson, Associate pastor of Wellspring Community Church, Welland, and National Worship Director for Promise Keepers Canada, for permission to use his songs at the end of the videos.

I know we are supposed to pray over our food, but c’mon folks, this thing is getting out of hand….and into our food.

I for one am pretty picky about what goes into my food, onto my table and into my mouth. How about you? I’m not sure how, or even if we can do anything about this.

Have the mad scientist’s gone even more stark staring? Have we become human lab rats to be experimented on?

I’m not in a place were I can raise my own food anymore. Even when I was, I still had to depend on outside sources for certain staples.

I don’t know about you guys, but this article just plain grossed me out.

LORD JESUS, help us!
