I've been busy!

I haven't written in several weeks only because things have been very busy in my life. One thing that does not cease in me is the desire to perpetuate the Gospel of the Kingdom even in the middle of world turmoil. In fact, I am more driven to preach and teach the Kingdom so others may be saved from the futility that overloads all who do not trust in the Christ anointing to minister peace in any storm. As an apostle of a kingdom church, I have been given the responsibility to lead those who call The Rock home in a way that leads to life and peace. Sound instruction will empower the hearer to develop a strength to rise above the flux of the "daily grind." It will also reveal the Father in a way that becomes less fictional and more actual. May Yahweh always be heard and felt, not just published in a book or painted on a canvas. If you do not know Him, He knows you. Get personal.

The Squeaky Wheel!

I am glad I am one that was not caught off guard by all that is going on around us. The housing fiasco, credit debacle, and economic crash only serve to confirm what I already knew. If one, person or country, rejects the creator, judgement is coming. I certainly will not be popular because of what I write and believe, however, read history and each one will find that the earth always reacts with violence to homesexual living, the killing of the unborn, and undisciplined lifestyles, which is all the rejection of righteousness. Man was created to replenish the earth with those who would honor the creator of it-Yahweh God. Homesexuality and abortion is a direct violation of that. It is true "the squeaky wheel gets the oil." Unfortunately, those who live with discipline, honor, integrity, and humane nature don't squeak loud enough. Instead, it is those who are living lawlessly and selfishly that have made enough noise that the whole world has begun to believe them. Even the church itself has started to accept debased living, not because it believes it is right, but because the church is afraid it will lose its members if it doesn't. I suggest the church be willing to lose them all if that is to become the acceptable. I would rather have one who loves Yahweh with all their heart, soul, and mind, than ten thousand who go to church in the morning, kill babies in the afternoon, and sleep with the same sex that night. Those of us who aren't opposed to being loud and becoming a squeaky wheel need to stand tall and not waver. Make some noise!

Crisis!

Here we are in the middle of a crisis easily blamed on everyone except those who are actually responsible-the citizens. I am not in favor of a bailout or any other reward for foolish, irresponsible spending by the citizens, not the government. It is neither the Republicans or Democrats that are to be blamed for this collapse. The entire responsibility falls to the citizens. Nobody forced anyone to purchase what they could not afford. Unfortunately, citizens have come to expect that any choice, regardless of the outcome, is the responsibility of someone else. Now, those who have disciplined their lives and spending, and made good choices, are being asked to suffer for those who did not, as though it is our obligation. Now, I, along with millions of others who have been responsible, have to listen to all those who have not, cry about their dire situations, and loss of possessions, and place blame on everyone else, while expecting us to finance their undisciplined and ignorant ways. Truthfully, there are those who have been responsible and are still in trouble, but most lived within their means and didn't listen to every lender that wanted to "give" them a dream in a bottle, and position themselves for failure. They saved and worked and saved and invested, and now they are giving that away without a choice to those who don't deserve it by virtue of having lived undisciplined, and irresponsible lives. It is a shame.

People, accept responsibility and correct your out-of-order habits now so this will not happen again. The government really doesn't have any control, except what you give it. You just gave it a fortune to spend when they haven't even balanced their books in decades. You have learned well from your government teacher. I am a Kingdom man and, therefore, I am a disciplined man. In time all will see the difference between those who depend on the earth and its governments for provision, and those who simply hear the voice of the Lord, and live with excellence, order, and discipline. This is what I teach, and this is the only way to rise above the fray.

Amazing Weekend!

This past weekend, a freind of mine, Ariel Ainsworth was with us at The Rock and ministered to all of us.  His word was amazing!  The gist of it was "the need to remove the vagabond spirit."  Too many people find their reward in moving from place to place believing the "grass is always greener on the other side," and because of impatience, they never really give this side opportunity to produce purpose in them.  Few people will put down their roots anymore in this mobile world we live in.  People are moving around blindly in a wilderness of hunt and search just in view of their promised land, but never move into it and settle down because of the vagabond spirit.  After all, we have to keep moving or else we might "miss" something.  I believe we need to be "still" or we will absolutely miss something.  My encouragement to you is, be still.  Settle down.  Taste the sweet of the land you are in even if you haven't seen it yet.  Your purpose might be to prove others wrong and become the sweet and hope of a hungry and restlessness generation.

Making His Name Great!

Simply put, the more we honor Him with excellence and order, the greater His name becomes.  How easy is that?!!  The greater His name becomes, the greater He will make us.  Sounds like a good deal.  

I am tired of watching churches and their leaders compromise the integrity and greatness of Yahweh's name by giving in to popular opinion and political correctness.  Rather than cower, there should be a display of courage.  Instead of weakness, there should be a demonstration of authority.  Conviction of spirit should overrule fear of the populace.  The same passion that one felt when entering a place of ministry should be the passion that sustains his positions.

Like Christ Himself, I wish everyone would receive Him and allow Him to change everything in them that is unrighteous.  Honor God and He will honor you.  Stay the course and don't be concerned with those that speak loudly but don't even make a bang when burst.

Grace!

Wow, it has been a month since my last entry. Since then, my family and I have been to Wyoming where we enjoyed 10 days of beautiful country and amazing animals. While we were away Tropical Storm Fay hit our home of Central Florida and saturated everything including our master bedroom. Fortunately the damage was not too bad, and we were able to dry everything out and get back to normal.

While in Wyoming I had a brief, yet interested conversation with a former member of President Reagan's staff. He asked what I knew about grace. I responded by saying that I believe, unlike most, that grace has borders, limits, and an East and a West. He asked if I could explain, so I did. If grace were infinite, there would be no devil, and no hell. There would be no need of those. Somewhere grace ran out for the devil and all those who choose evil over good, or unrighteousness over righteousness, and then they find themselves over the edge of grace, in a place called hell. He said there are many who would disagree with me. My response was simply, "they are wrong." Grace is available to all, yet is not an umbrella to all. I encourage you to get under grace by hearing and obeying what the mind of Yahweh is.

The Reward of Hearing.

To hear and obey the voice of Yahweh is the only pathway to a reward desired by all. Everyone wants to live, to be blessed, to be happy, to be fulfilled, to be free, and the road to those desires is hearing the voice of the Lord. Most people don't have a problem with that, their problem is how the voice is heard. What I mean by that is, as long as the voice comes in the way of the Bible, or a popular denomination, it is a voice they will hear. Any other voice is taboo. However, for those who have heard the voice (of Yahweh) in the voice of another man (present day Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, Teacher) they understand that the Father is not limited to a book, or even a doctrinal statement of faith. It takes a small and weak mind to try and contain Yahweh and His son Jesus Christ in a book of about 1000 pages, or a denomination afraid to go beyond the mind of man. I am what I am today because I heard the voice of Yahweh God in the voice of an apostle who is alive today. Because of that I will never be the same.

I can't even begin here to share all that is in my heart to enable and equip the reader with a hunger to reach past where they are, but I can begin one day, one blog at a time. Join me as I write and express from an Apostle's perspective the joy and reward of hearing a voice within a voice.

The Weekend

We just finished another day of ministry and fellowship at The Rock of Central Florida. I am always amazed at the passion within the people of The Rock to go spiritually where they have never gone before. They are more interested in being in Yahweh's will than they are in being right in their own mind. It is an honor to walk with them and to be received as an Apostle by them. There are churches that entertain and educate religiously on every corner, but there are far less houses of worship where believers can gather and be equipped without shame, humiliation, and fear, to do the work of the gospel. I can't wait until next week!

Thankful!

I am closing out another evening with my family, and I am really a blessed man. Every day I find myself enjoying life. Not because I am more special than anyone else, but mostly because I make good choices. It is not by accident that blessing comes to me; it is commanded of Yahweh to those who are obedient to Him. I enjoy entering in to every day with an attitude to do all things well, excellent, and with order. Because of that I have been able to experience accomplishments others dream about. I don't always hit the mark, but I am always moving towards it like an arrow shot from a bow. I love Yahweh, and I love pleasing Him. I understand that if I will live life bent on knowing Him and honoring Him, my days will continue to be as they have been since yeilding to Him - filled with purpose. To Him I am thankful.
