“Adam and Eve” #2

You can’t win a race like this.

We’ve crossed a line and don’t know how to get back. You see… Eve is a true believer. Gaia has her true believers. Here’s a quote from C.S. Lewis that says it well:

“Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barons’ cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

Does the Creator need to explain to His creation why He chooses a certain design? I think not. It might even be that the explanation is there, but we’re blind to it, or don’t want to hear it, but the Creator decides, not the creation.

Why did God put the male in charge directly under him? I don’t know. Perhaps the tree was the test. Perhaps the fact that the snake was able to make a “true believer” out of Eve, but not Adam, perhaps that was the deciding factor. Adam failed because of love, his love for Eve, but it says Eve was actually deceived, fooled, convinced.

“You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it.” (Gen. 3: 4-6)

Eve then gave to Adam. The world changed at that point and God had to establish order. Our God is a God of peace and order. There has to be structure in order to have order. Take a public school for example. The structure of authority runs from the School Board, down to the Principal, whether male or female, and then the teachers, and then the children. There has to be a structured and recognized line of authority for peace and order to thrive. God chose man and Eve does not want to hear that. Gaia plans to overthrow that.

1st Corinthians 14: 33 > “For God is not a God of disorder but of peace, as in all the meetings of God’s holy people.”  (Vrs 40) “But be sure that everything is done properly and in order.”

According to mythology, Uranus became the husband of Gaia. She then gave birth to the 12 Titans. Uranus decided to imprison the 12 in the underworld. Rather than submit to her husband’s decision, she encouraged the children to overthrow him. They did. Uranus died. Cronus became the lead God, and the Romans consider those years of the 12 Titans to be a golden age. They actually were disappointed after Cronus was overthrown by his own son, Zeus. This is the spirit filling our earth and growing every day.

Eve wanted more. She was not satisfied with what God had provided. The allure of wisdom and the chance to be as God was too much for her. She believed. She wanted. She went for it. Adam followed. They both lost everything.

Now Adam is losing the church. This is the garden God put man in charge of at Pentecost. Not many women are Pastors “YET”, but it is growing. However, Eve is about much more than that. Eve is about her “BEAUTY”. These gods and goddesses go all the way back to Baal and Ashoreth, the wife of Baal. Gaia, in one form or another, is still of the spirit of all the goddesses, sexuality, beauty, lust, riches, jewelry, Victoria’s Secret, and so on. When the Bible speaks of Baal and Ashoreth (the Queen of Heaven), the fertility gods were always about lots of power, riches, and sex!

Now Pastors…you know modesty has been lost in modern church and spirits of lust are tormenting most of your men. I know, because I was one of them. It wasn’t till I left the church that I was surprised to find those lustful forces fading, as I sought more of the Holy Spirit. The toothpaste is out of the tube. Eve is not going to go back within the lines God has drawn, because Adam let her cross them, and it’s too late now. Any attempt to do so is simply going to get the Bible banned even more as a Sexist and Gender bias book filled with hate! “Checkmate!” Gaia is on the rise and where is that taking us? Look out for the Trojan Horse!

Eve is a true believer. She thinks she is saving the world. But the New Green Deal is really more of a slide into Socialism than it is simply green energy. There is a strong left-wing movement towards Socialism, and “Going Green” is a Trojan Horse to that end. And remember church, those of you who still have ears to hear, Socialism is anti-Christian. Communism is anti-Christian. Gaia is anti-Christian. All three are a very real danger to our way of life, and they will ban our hate-filled book!

They want to disarm us. The Bible, the Word of God, is our Sword. Eve will buy the lie of a beautiful godlike existence. She will surrender our weapon. We will find ourselves in a sword fight with no sword! Gideon, Elijah, and John the Baptist, all three bore a sword. There will be much more on all this to come.

Interesting note: The movie “Avatar”, which is full of New Age Gaia type philosophy, that movie came out 12 years ago and then went silent…waiting…preparing…for what? But starting in 2021, four more Avatar movies are slated to begin, one every two years. 2021, 2023, 2025, and 2027. Do you see the hand-writing on the wall? Have you read the tea leaves? Your Bible is under attack, and all of us who identify with it. Racism is a stepping stone to the other dominoes that must fall. It’s may be too late to change, but not too late to prepare. Come out from among them, and be true blue.

Christianity is simple. Jesus said it in two words, when he said, “Follow Me.”

 

 

“Vision Update” #3

cart-before-the-horse

This is one more reason I left the modern day church.

We just keep falling into man-made ways, rather than depending upon the Wind. I’ve tried to be “diplomatic” long enough. I just don’t care anymore. People today have to be hit over the head with a 2×4 or they don’t hear a thing! Motorboats are roaring so loudly no one hears the voice of the sailboat! Row boats are paddling in such a frenzy they know nothing of the peace and ways of a sail boat!

The way I see it, “POLITICS” can be worked two ways. One: Do the work of a Priest. You affect the hearts and minds of people with the message of Christ by living as the Priests we are called to be. And then those people go and vote in a godly way and the country is blessed by God!

TWO: The church becomes political. We are desperate to the point of hanging our hopes on a carnal man. We try to FORCE people to live godly through politics rather than a heart transplant by the power of God. We use law. We go backwards to the laws of Moses rather than the Spirit of Christ.

Now I ask you, which did Jesus do? I also ask you, which is the church doing? 

The church has been functioning as the picture above for too long! Even the horse can’t believe his eyes! He stares at us in disbelief! We’ve lost all spiritual horse sense! And we need to repent of it and get our minds renewed back into the ways of God!

I believe the vision I had shows that our politics, and Trump, are about to backfire on the church! Big time! You cannot force righteousness. It’s always had to be a desire of the heart! If God’s earthly Priests affect the world for enough people to have that changed heart, then good leaders will be elected. But if the church lives as kings rather than Priests, guess what? You become political. You try to force righteousness. Your ways begin to feel like a dictatorship. And all hell is gonna break loose! Why???

Because for one thing, since we have not been the priesthood, light has greatly decreased, the standard has fallen, darkness has greatly INCREASED, and we will be out voted! Whether this election or the next, it really will not matter, Donald Trump unintentionally has made the church the target! The world not only wants to get Trump out of that office, but they want to make sure no one like him can ever get there again! The church is about to become Public Enemy number One! You say we have already been that? No we have not! But I fear you will soon learn the difference! (And I think it’s too late to change course. We need to get back to being the Priesthood, but the world is not going to forget what we have already done.)

The disciples were always trying to get Jesus to go political, remember? How do we forget? How do we not learn? Jesus always redirected their attention back to the Kingdom of God! He never went political! And when the church finally did, with Constantine, we ended up in the dark ages! Why is this so hard for modern Christians to see? And yet I know I’m a very small minority and the church will consider me insane, stupid, blind, or a traitor. But there comes a time when you give up caring, because you’ve spoken these things in a nice way till you’re blue in the face and it got you nowhere! Again, what did Jesus do? I follow Him. Show me otherwise.

Even just before Jesus is about to leave, the disciples are still wanting to go political, but our Lord’s answer still has not changed. He is trying to tell them spiritual things, things of the Kingdom of God, but they still have a kingdom of man mindset. >

“And being assembled together with them, he commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, which, He said, you have heard from me, for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now. Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”

Even as he is leaving! And how did he answer? He basically said don’t worry about that and took them right back to a focus on the Kingdom of God! He spoke of power in the Holy Spirit and being witnesses! Be the Priesthood! This is all in Acts 1:4-8. This is what Jesus did. We ask what would Jesus do? This is what he did, and so did the early church he started. But we are not the early church anymore, are we? Oh to God that we were! It can be frustrating being a sailboat in a world of motorboats and row boats. Row row row your boat stressfully down the stream!

So… the two gates I have given much detail about in previous articles. I now believe those two gates represent the connection between Trump and the church. They also represent a church gone political, as in the days of Constantine. When I showed up in the wind storm, I found my 87 year old dad out there, hanging on for dear life, and trying to tie the gates shut and blockade them with cement blocks! The wind had already blown the gates open several times. The latch which normally was good enough, simply couldn’t withstand this kind of FORCE. So my dad, a picture of the “old guard”, the traditional status quo church was out there trying to prop it all up! More programs! More man-made devices!

When I showed up the answer seemed obvious to me. I couldn’t believe he was even out there trying to do it. But the gates were acting as a net. As the old, dry, lifeless, unanointed corn shucks were getting caught and pinned against the gates, as the gates were filling with this dry lifeless stuff(!)… they were becoming solid, the wind was no longer passing through and the pressure was building like clogged arteries! But when I showed up, driving a truck with Ram’s horns (Shofar) on the hood, and being someone who has left the old wine skin, I broke the connection of the two gates and opened it up! Now the wind blew through and a sign of the old wine skin rupturing! But all those in the secret place, which are some of the words I painted on the teepee, will be marked by God. I’m not saying it will be a comfort zone. The teepee is not yet very comfortable, but do we want comfort, or POWER? And I’m not talking political power, I’m talking God’s POWER!

Usually we meet God in the “discomfort zone”. In the denying of the flesh we find the Spirit. Those who will walk on water, then, are in the discomfort zone seeking God NOW! And likely has already been for some time, but it’s not too late!

I have one more thing to share at this time concerning these two gates. The day God showed me the church and Trump, it just happened I was going to the farm later that day. When I showed up a turtle dove was perched on the left gate! Now lest some of you are thinking this is a sign that God is on the side of the party of abortion, let me correct that quickly. What God was showing me is the dove was indicating which gate was the church. It sat right there looking at me as if to say, “Have you got it yet?” And then peacefully flew off. Therefore, the gate on the right had to be Trump. Why is this interesting? (And this had never happened with any bird before! None!)

The gate on the left is old, worn, and weak; but the gate on the right is actually attached to a 4×4 post which is rotting at the bottom! The bottom of that post is greatly damaged and weakened! It is the weakest of all! My dad even put a small wheel under that section of gate to help support it! Interesting, huh. And our modern church is irrevocably attached to this man. Am I saying we should never have voted for him? NO! We can cast our votes without making a big political issue out of it, and the other choice was Hillary! She is rotten completely through! But…

If we had been a proper Priesthood all these years, it never would have come to this. The fact we had little choice is because we have failed so miserably to be the salt and the light of Christ, and become lovers of this present age. Priests are called to discomfort zones. We perform sacrifices that help people.  We are called to a life of sacrifice, not kingship. Salt gives its life away as it performs its action against decay. A candle slowly gives its life as it lights a room. Scripture is very plain on this matter, and also the life of Christ himself. We are called to discomfort zones, but the ZEAL that burns within us for the Kingdom of God, so overrides any price we pay, that it is counted as all joy to us! It’s a supernatural paradox that only happens when you’re truly in the POWER of God! It is a work of the Holy Spirit, completely supernatural! And how do you get more of the Holy Spirit? Usually in the discomfort zone.

Church…you got the cart before the horse. Some of us are realizing the truth of this and are repenting and changing. I was in some fasting and praying before Passover. I was in some fasting and praying again at Pentecost. And now I’m getting ready for a return to the teepee for three days, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, this next weekend. I will be fasting, praying, studying, and listening. I have not had a time of spiritual separation unto God in that teepee since those ten days back in October and November of 2018. I plan to take my laptop and do some blogging while I’m there. I plan to share some thoughts as I am in that separated time, whatever God will allow me. I hope you stay tuned. Maybe even tell some friends.

There is much yet to tell on this living vision I had. We have mostly spoken of the gates so far. In view of recent events, I felt it critical to share my thoughts on these gates as quickly as possible. Be spiritually prepaying yourself. Joshua faced Canaanites, Jebusites, and all kinds of “ites” in his day. But we are facing Clintonites, Obamaites, Bidenites, and etc. You get the picture. Even Joshua suffered defeat when there was sin in the camp. And I know we are not perfect, but people, we’ve drifted so far from the original pattern of the church, and what is still written in our New Testament Bible, that we have fallen into much idolatry! It’s not about being perfect! But like in the days of Gideon, there are idols to fall! Gideon will be one of our next topics of the vision, the warrior in the night sky! Stay tuned!

“Vision Update” #2

20171202_173614 As our story left off last episode, I arrived at the farm where my teepee sits and find my 87 year old dad, out in a 50 mph wind, trying to tie and blockade our old fence together! Rather than simply open it up and let the fierce winds blow through, he’s in a life and death battle, like Don Quixote fighting windmills!

So I sent him inside and I decided to open the gates and let the flood of corn shucks and wind flow in. The wind was fierce! I can’t remember the last time we had winds like that at the farm. Had the corn field not been harvested, everything would have been different, but it had been, and now we had this corn shuck storm pounding the farm, filling the gate and fences, which are held up by very old posts, and it was simply a wicked situation. It was incredible to look upon, but nothing you wanted to be in for very long. I don’t know what the wind chill factor was, but it was an all round nasty day for me to be arriving at teepee and starting my first “Godseek” in this special place I had built with my own two hands.

So I climbed back in my old truck with the double Shofar’s on the hood and drove back to the private area, under a big tree, in which the teepee sits. I grabbed some things out of the truck and headed to the teepee with a big night ahead of me. As I came under the tree I entered a stillness that was almost eerie! I looked around and saw everything still blowing like a hurricane only mere inches away from me! But where I stood, next to the teepee, WAS NO WIND! It was completely protected! You ask how can that be?

Okay, there is a logical reason. It was not some supernatural force, but… God had arranged things in such a way that the wind was straight out of the west and the teepee sits immediately behind a huge barn that was completely blocking the fierce winds! A picture is worth a thousand words they say.

20181007_191325 It was as if the teepee was in a protected space! I stood there with my mouth hanging open, in complete peace, while I looked upon total chaos going on all around me! I made note of all this in my mind and then entered the teepee to begin my separated time.

Now another thing I did not know and did not plan was the Orion meteor shower. My wife chose the dates all this took place. I didn’t know about any meteor shower until I heard it on a radio program when I was getting ready that morning! So this became another element of what I felt God was showing me. I was beginning to realize there was more going on here than simple coincidences. It was like a living vision being played out. God was giving me pieces to a jigsaw puzzle, but what would it all mean?

That night the winds died down and I went out into the cold and stared up at that huge dark sky. It was full of stars! There was also a moon. There were no city lights making it difficult to see. The farm was dark, no outside lights on. I’ve never been much of an astronomer or very good at seeing constellations. But that night I sware I saw the constellation of Orion clearly! I had been studying it on the Internet hoping to be able to pick it out. I knew what I was looking for, but I had always been so bad at it! Not that night! I saw his belt, his bow, his sword, the hour-glass shape of his body! I saw it all clearly! But I saw no meteors.

Now I was like a Batman trying to solve a mystery. I was in prayer and research. I discovered there was a “window of time” which was best to see a meteor! The reason was…the moon would set at a certain time and the sun did not rise till a certain time, leaving the sky its darkest! This made it the easiest for a meteor to show up! And before the weekend was over, I did see one! (Just one, and it was quick.)

But the hair on my neck stood up when I realized the time my watch stopped at was in that window! As best I remember, the window was approximately 3 hours. The moon would be gone and no other light in the sky except for stars until the sunrise. My watch had stopped one hour, and like 3 minutes before the sunrise! In other words, things would go extra dark as the moon sat, but my watch stopped at a time with just over an hour left of that darkness before the sun rising! My watch stopping had become a part of this mystery and another clue!

This set me to trying to calculate how long an hour is with God? My reasoning was, if a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as a day, then how long is an hour? Because my watch stopped showing roughly an hour and three minutes before the sunrise, in that window of time in which the moon, (which is a symbol of the church), was set and greater darkness invaded, but also stars or meteors become brighter!

My calculations, if I’m right, came out to be 41.66666 years! But now I had to also calculate those 3 minutes and so many seconds. (yes there was some seconds. I’ll try to have the exact time for you in next episode. I got to dig out my journal.) Anyway, eventually… other clues slowly came narrowing down the date…but I eventually decided God was very plainly showing me June of 2020!

At that time I had just started having our first Passover meals with our Fellowship, but I had never given much thought to Pentecost, which comes 50 days after the Lord’s resurrection. But this year, when COVID had us all locked in our homes at Passover, just like the original Passover, and we realized something special might be happening, then I became aware of Pentecost! And it happened to be the day before crossing into June! At midnight of Pentecost day we would cross into June! Crossing the line God had showed me! So I began making spiritual preparations to receive from God anything he might want to pour out on me that day! (There was fasting, prayer, and study involved for a period of 3 weeks.)

And so…I have been watching these things for like one year and seven months. When COVID broke out, it was not yet June. I told my wife this may be leading to what God showed me, but we’re not there yet. As bad as COVID is, what might June be bringing? And then our phones went off that night before midnight. I think like 7 or 8. And there were the messages of an enforced 8 pm. curfew in Indianapolis! We actually had no idea things had gotten so bad, just ten minutes from us! We actually live inside the 465 ring. It had never been like this in our city before! And a few hours later, we crossed midnight and entered June, and the journey continues, even as we see sweeping changes “of all sorts” coming our way.

I’m sure I’ve missed a few details that will be added as we go, but even back in October of 2018 I knew this vision was connected to what would be the 2020 elections. I don’t consider myself a prophet. I’ve missed things before. I feel God shows me things because I love seeking his mysteries, but then I try to read the tea leaves. I love trying to solve the puzzle. I invite you to also ponder what all this means, but in recent time I have a stronger opinion about what I think I see. Let me explain the “gates” for a moment, and then we will stop for now.

I wish I had a picture, I’ll take one next time I’m out there, but the gate is actually two parts. They are like cow gates you would find on a farm. Each half is rather long, one end attached to what “use to be” very strong 4×4 posts. These post are rotting at the base and my dad has propped them every way possible. One gate is much worse than the other. These two connect in the middle, across the driveway entering the farm. They have to be opened by hand. The teepee sits in the back of property, a secluded area behind the barn. Now I have come to believe these two old gates represent the connection between our traditional church system and Donald Trump! (Oh boy.)

As you pull into our drive, the gate on the right is the weakest one with the most rotten 4×4 base. I have come to believe that gate represents Trump, and the other the traditional church. Both gates are old and in bad shape. If you know this site you know I left traditional church to join the Simple Micro Church movement. I climbed out of my Shofar truck and told my dad (representing the traditional church) to leave, I’m opening the gates! Wow. A lot to think about.

I believe God has shown me some things about all of this just since Pentecost. I didn’t “feel” a thing as Pentecost passed, but first I felt an urge to spend another three days at the teepee this June 12,13, and 14. That’s my plan. And then I also began seeing a lot more in the events currently happening, and the events I experienced in that strange 24 hour day I had in October 2018. And oh, by the way, that watch started working again a couple days later, and ran for a few months before giving it up. The watch was defective. It should have lasted much longer. But all very weird.

To be continued.

 The mystery continues.

“Trump is not Jesus!”

5883 Left Wing Media? LOL! I hate politics. I see it as a necessary evil. There is no perfect system, and for some reason… the chance for power…money… fame… bling… whatever; modern politics attracts a lot of undesirable behavior from people. Makes them act like little spoiled children.

Yesterday is an incredible case in point, when President Trump took the media to school and became their teacher with the facts in hand. What did the left wing media do with it? Did they learn anything? Did they thank him for presenting no-fake facts? Did they walk out of there smarter? No… they walked out filled with even more hate, and to all of us watching it is so obvious that it leaves us sick of our stomach and shaking our heads! I almost puked as I checked CNN last night to get their take on it all. I do like hearing both sides.

What did they do with their day in class? Instead of learning a single thing, they cried that the teacher was a bully! How dare he use the truth against us? (Aren’t real journalist supposed to desire truth? If they’re not journalist, what are they? Why are they even there?) How dare he stand up to our attacks! He’s nothing but a big bully! (I am so sick of my stomach after almost four years of these losers crying.)

Do they think President Trump is Jesus? He’s supposed to stay silent like a lamb while they constantly seek to find fault and twist every word he says? They expect a man to be perfect?

So the analogy here is a school room of higher education. The media did not know they were going to be taken to school, or they would not have showed up. They want a one-sided show. What if the media represent real students in a real school? What kind of students are they? When presented with facts concerning their own bad behavior, they cry bully! The teacher presented the facts, provable by their own words written or spoken and recorded, and somehow they sat in class and totally misinterpret and twist the lesson? In other words, these are the kind of students who could never learn anything, or ever pass a class! You can’t teach someone like that! And these are the students we listen to??? The pen is deadlier than a gun. America protects their speech, but these people are dangerous! Don’t kid yourself into thinking they are not. The gun is loaded!

How has politics come to this? How has media come to this? Was it this way in the days of our forefathers? Or have we become some kind of spoiled brats they would have taken not to a class room, but a wood shed! (Oh oh… that’s probably not good political correctness. I hate politics., but it’s the best system we got.)

Somehow…in spite of ourself…America is still a great place to live. However, if the church don’t get back to the Christian roots of what she is called to be, the tides of evil are rising! Truth is falling in the streets! The President can do as good a job as anyone could ever reasonably expect in very uncertain and unknown times, and yet he will be attacked every time he tries to tell us what’s happening.

Frankly, even if I thought Trump was a horrible president, (which I don’t), but if I did, I would still have to give the man great credit for being willing to walk onto that platform day after day, knowing he was about to be attacked in every crafty word of question or remark that could possibly be devised. Jesus had the “VERY SAME” problem with the Pharisees! And even Jesus called them vipers and snakes! Even Jesus did! And Trump is not Jesus! I think he’s shown tremendous restraint! LOL. If you can use those words with Donald Trump. (I can’t believe I’m even saying this. Wow.)

But compared to the left wing media, they make President Trump look good! That’s a truth hard to believe possible, but they do! And I hate politics! But as an honest person, I still have to admit this system has given me a good life. I thank God for America and this system that has somehow managed to work in spite of all the corruption that has attacked it. But how much longer will it be so? Especially as we become more and more a post-Christian nation? (No fake news here, just facts.) What about it, church?

I actually heard a Christian the other day recommending the book “Fifty Shades of Grey”! What kind of Christian is that? This is our own facts being thrown back in the face of what the church has become! What are we doing about it? Are we going back to our spiritual roots! NO! We just keep pressing blindly ahead! Don’t bother me with the facts, I’ve got my best life to live! I don’t have time for truth! What does the Bible REALLY say? What did Jesus REALLY do? I’m not interested! I love the Beatitudes, just don’t expect me to live them! What kind of love is that?

Can any system or person or country withstand continual attack from people so set on an agenda based on lies? A people so in love with power, pleasure, money, and self promotion that no one truly seeks the good of their country anymore? Could that day come when there is no longer anyone fighting for what is right in Washington DC? When there is no longer push back against the lies? No longer exposure of the lies? Because if they do, they come under such attack the average person could never survive? Even their family is persecuted!

To tell you the truth, one of the main reasons I finally decided to vote for our current President, was the fact he fought against the lies no matter what people thought or said. True…it wasn’t always pretty, but at least he fought! I’ve been so sick of wishy washy politicians who let media walk on them, that when I saw a man who would at least stand, whatever other faults he may have, I voted for him! And plan to do so again because the truth is, the side on the left is still just as messed up as they were! Maybe worse! They haven’t learned a thing! They ate their school books or cooked them, or both!

If the President says something is white, they say it’s black! If he decides to change to black, then they say it’s white! And was always white! Even if we did say it was black before! Don’t face us with such facts as our own words and actions! You’re just a big bully! (Wow…that’s really sad.) Do they really think we don’t see this? We would have to be blind.

It’s amazing to me that those of the left, if they were to read this article, they would totally deny their own words and actions as if none of it matters at all, and they would simply try to shout me down with hate and name-calling, just like the behavior of little kids I remember in grade school. They would never let me forget my words, even things they might twist my words into, but they can say and do whatever they want, be wrong a million times, but they get a complete pass in their own minds.

But as proven by all this, these people must not be the brightest bulbs in the room because they don’t seem to realize how obvious this all is to the rest of us. They really think they are fooling us? Oh my. They think we don’t see they have no clothes? Oh my. They really think they’re that good? Oh my. Well… there you go, I guess we see the problem, huh. Thy’re not good journalist at all. They are traitors to true journalism. A plain old dictionary can teach you that much. Where do they get their facts from? Their own minds. I guess they also have a fake dictionary, too. (I’ve got to stop because this just keeps getting worse the farther I go, and I don’t want to go there. It’s a snake pit.)

Like I said, I hate politics, but I am fascinated by human behavior. One reason the Bible will always be relevant is because human behavior never changes without the help of God. The Bible will always be relevant and some people will always want to burn it into nonexistence if they could. They have tried before. These people claim to be Christians while promoting the death of babies in the sacred womb. How much darker can it get? This is the kind of darkness the Bible warns us about. This is the kind of truth that is falling in the streets. And I have written these words while I still can.

“…….. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matt. 6:23b)

Truth is simple. Lies are complicated. Let us seek the simplicity of truth.

Covenant of Darkness P-1

I have known for a long time, the Old Covenant, the Old Testament in our Bible, is darkness to man, not salvation. And because it is full of a lot of good laws by which to conduct society, and the ungodly, we do not realize its death to us.

From the very beginning, the first covenant was meant for man to fail, and God to fulfill!

How many times have you asked someone if they are a Christian, and they answer by saying they try to live by the 10 Commandments? This only reveals their lack of understanding of God, God’s Word, and God’s way of salvation; for the Covenant of the Laws only prove us guilty! Worthy of judgement! No man has ever successfully kept the Old Covenant save Jesus Christ Himself, God Himself! Which He did in order to save us from the judgement our failure deemed us worthy of! And that judgement is based upon the First Covenant, with all the “thou shalt nots”, and “thou shalts”!

Please consider this scripture as a first step in understanding this very important biblical concept: “So if the priesthood of Levi, on which the law was based, could have achieved the perfection God intended, why did God need to establish a different priesthood, with a priest in the order of Melchizedek instead of the order of Levi and Aaron? And if the priesthood is changed, the law must also be changed to permit it.” (Hebrews 7: 11-12 NLT)

Jesus is the beginning of a different priesthood, which the Bible describes as a priesthood after the order of Melchizedek, a very mysterious person who shows up for Abraham way back in Genesis 14! Jesus begins a different priesthood because he established a very different Covenant, which we enter into through Him! And whereas the first Covenant was based on 10 Commandments, our Lord’s Covenant is based on only 2! And we will look at the very different nature of the 10 and the 2, for there is great purpose and meaning in that difference!

As a first step in understanding this difference, please note our scripture speaks of a “perfection” God intended in that first covenant. As every human well knows, we do not do well with that word, “perfect”. In our world there is no such thing as perfect, especially in the behavior of man!

Jesus spoke of this perfection in his famous Sermon on the Mount, in Matthew 5: 48, when he said, “But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.”

But how are we to achieve such perfection? It certainly cannot be done by way of the First Covenant. That was why Jesus was here. To fulfill that Covenant and that perfection for us, and establish a new order of priesthood and a New Covenant, powerful enough in “His” perfection and “His” blood to save a true Believer! Wow! Is that awesome or what! But this also means the First Covenant is only failure for us! It is defeat, judgement, darkness, no hope, no light, no heaven! Only hell!

It did bring the One who is Light to us. Praise God! And that was God’s plan from the beginning. It does save us in a round-about way, if we realize that First Covenant is pointing towards Christ the whole time! It is meant to be as a school master teaching us the way to salvation, but it is not the salvation we need in itself. It announces the salvation to come, and gives us many lessons and warnings as to why we should not neglect the great salvation to come, for we do not want to die in the Covenant of Law! The Covenant of Moses! But we rejoice in the coming of God’s Covenant of Grace in Christ Jesus!

“There is a way that seems right to man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Man always seems to think he can do it himself. That is our own logic and our natural way, unless we understand how defiled we are, and how far short of perfection we fall. The Bible teaches if you break even one of the Commandments, you are guilty of breaking all! And Jesus added to the difficulty of the challenge when again, in His Sermon on the Mount, he said if you even look at a woman with lust, you are guilty of adultery! If you are angry with someone, you commit murder! The mark of perfection is so high, man was without hope!

Now that we have established the basic understanding of how the Old Covenant is not life to us, but death; I can now begin explaining how I came to call the First Covenant, the “Covenant of Darkness”. I never called it this, nor did I even think of it in this way, until one day I realized by the time Adam and Eve got kicked out of the Garden of Eden, it had to be dark! Once I realized this, I became curious if all the major moves of the Old Covenant had darkness involved, and it did! I was amazed! And I realized that once again God was showing us more truth! It was more than my own curiosity, but the Holy Spirit was leading me.

So… you can begin looking at it yourself if you like, but next episode (P-2) we will look at Adam and Eve’s expulsion, and every major move of the Old Covenant thereafter, clear up to Jesus completing the Old Covenant Himself, on the cross. You might recall God brought three hours of darkness in the middle of the day in that event! And three hours is no simple eclipse!

And why is this so important? Because Jesus brought us the Covenant of Light. You will also see that every major move of the New Covenant, such as Christ’s resurrection, is performed in light! These cannot be mere happenstance! And so… if we try to pull anything from the Covenant of Darkness and force it into the Covenant of Light? Are we not guilty of forcing darkness into God’s light? But who does that, you might ask.

Well… our modern church does not even realize the love of money they are guilty of, which is the root of all evil! The New Covenant in Christ is based on two very different commands than the original 10. We are to LOVE God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. And we are to LOVE our neighbor as ourself. The early church established by Christ functioned on LOVE OFFERINGS. Even the Pastors lived off LOVE OFFERINGS. When did tithing come back into things? Is it possible it was drug from the old and forced into the new because of the greed of man? We do not even realize how many ways we may be bringing law into God’s love and liberty.

I have pondered if this is even a slap in the face of Jesus as he hung on that cross paying the price for us to live in liberty and Spirit. I fear to answer that with a yes, but I see the possibility. We have a warped version of Jesus and as a result, we create warped disciples. Jesus said an easy yoke and light burden, and yet we make church a heavy thing, full of lifeless programs, boring repetitious routines, and very little true liberty and relationship.

Once upon a time I was excited when God revealed all this to me. But today I had to force myself to obey God and begin the work of putting this out there, because I have already shown this to others, only to find they are so programmed they can no longer look at scriptures for themselves and actually see what they say. Either that, or they just don’t care that much. I usually encounter one of the two.

So… I’m making this effort because I believe this is way more important than the reaction I usually get, and someone has to keep shouting that the “King Theology” has no clothes! Laodicea has no clothes! We should be looking to Smyrna! It is a very dangerous time to be Laodicean! But can the programmed ever see?

There is much more to show in the proving of this message. I know I have only begun to give you solid evidence of what I have said. I hope you realize the importance of this enough, that if you still have doubts, you will come back to examine all the evidence. But for now this is enough of the elephant for any person to eat in one setting. Chew on the fact Jesus changed the priesthood and the laws, because the First Covenant was never intended for us to succeed, but only fail. It is not based on LOVE, but LAW and PERFECT FULFILLMENT. This meal is to be continued…soon. Comments welcome.

 

 

Proper Balance

20171202_173614 Hi! Grandpa White Feather here. It all starts with the proper foundation. Jesus, the Master Carpenter and High Priest after the order of Melchizedek, laid the perfect foundation for his Church. This foundation is perfectly square and perfectly level. This foundation is perfect, but then man began building upon it.

Most of this blog site has been about my spiritual journey of leaving the modern American Church in search of something closer to what Jesus actually did, because we have drifted so far from the original pattern. Our modern Church is more like a big business than our Father’s house. Jesus came revealing to us the “Father”. The Church he birthed is a type of the Father’s House, but we have turned it into a den of thieves and every other worldly way. Is this my Father’s House?

We have spoke much of these things in earlier articles. We have taken this spiritual journey together, and it is still there for anyone to study. I started this blog as a personal tool, so I could use it as I personally teach others. It’s as a text book for me. So whether anyone reads this site or not, it is still very useful in my personal teachings with people. I will continue growing it until there is no need to grow anymore.

So… it’s time to begin asking some new questions. The answers to our previous questions have brought us to a place more perfectly “square” and “level”. We have gotten back closer to what Jesus actually did. So where do we go from here? With our new knowledge, what new light does it shine on every aspect of our spiritual life and journey? What kind of powerful life can we have in Christ as a result of the new knowledge we possess? It’s time to ask those questions and pioneer our new frontier. As always, our goal is a life that soars more, and flaps less…i.e. supernatural.

As I talked to God about this, it seemed to me that finding our proper balance is such an important first step. We all talk about seeking balance in our life. We all recognize how difficult that can be in our modern lifestyle. If I can help even one person, including myself, find that proper balance of God, then I have gained a great treasure. If there is a way of maintaining spiritual balance, so much so that the world can no longer rock your boat, disturb your peace, confuse your passion and purpose, then we have gained a great treasure, and become a rich person. We become rich in the true riches of eternity.

Still to this day I enjoy the pleasure of riding a bike down a beautiful country road. If I can find a road where traffic is slow and light, and the street has ample room, riding a bike is a great delight. As a young man growing up in the country, my bike was my freedom before I was old enough to drive. I rode for many many miles, but I also remember how hard it was in the beginning, to get the balance of the thing. Not much true forward motion and freedom was achieved until I mastered that balance.

It’s really strange how easy it is to ride a bike once you get the hang of it. How does something go from very difficult, even dangerous, to piece-of-cake-easy so suddenly? It is a mystery to me, but suddenly you’re doing it, and you never forget how to ride a bike. Is that not true? Balance can open such pleasures and joy for us. It is no wonder that mankind constantly seeks that perfect balance, as elusive as it may seem to be. But if anyone knows how to master it, it is our Lord Jesus Christ. If anyone knows how to bring square and level to our lifestyle, it’s the Master Spiritual Carpenter from Galilee.

The things we will speak of may not sound easy at first, but like learning to ride that bike, if God says this is the way, you can trust he knows what he is talking about. But do we really trust him? Are we ready to let him take the training wheels off, start pedaling that bike with his hand keeping us steady, but knowing at some point he is going to let go… so we can learn…so we can do…so we can be free and soar? Do we really believe? Have we really accepted Christ as the truth, the way, and the life? Because this will test if you have or not.

When I read scripture, I hear Jesus speaking of a life simple and serene. He also spoke of a “depth”. However, many people today are lost in the shallow and complex as they chase material things that will never satisfy, only enslave. As a young man I fell into many of those same traps. I became the enslaved until I finally began realizing how this kept happening to me. How I wish I could have read teachings of this sort at that time. I’m sure I would have still made some of the same mistakes, but I would have “woke up” sooner, and found a proper balance quicker. My life could have been free and flowing much sooner than it was. I could have been walking the white path much sooner.

Of course we must know all this is somehow connected to out spirit, not our flesh. Jesus knew this way. Our gut tells us this is true and yet we fail to ride that bike, until we finally grow sick of rotten fruit and begin hungering after the foods of God. Here is what our Bible tells us the fruit of God produces in us:

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,…” Galatians 5:22a

And those are just the first three! There are nine of them, but some of the others may sound hard? Do we trust our Father? Will we learn such a balance that begins with love, joy, and peace? The choice is yours, but God does take note of our actions.

This is where our path now goes. Now that we have a more solid foundation getting back to what Jesus did, now we stay with this same path. We do not change to another horse or another path. This one has brought us to very good places. It is a true path. Why would we change now? No! We must see where this goes, for it is a path without end, an eternal path leading to eternal places, and if we are wise, that is the journey every man seeks.

However, if you have not read the journey thus far, and you have a very out of square and unlevel perspective concerning the House/Family of our Father, then these future teachings will likely not last for you. The climb may be too steep and high. You will have no strength for it. Do the work of a proper builder, and get that foundation right. It’s all there for you. Just go back to what Jesus actually did.

Our next lesson will continue this question of proper balance, how to find and maintain it. It doesn’t come in one easy answer. There are a few pieces to this puzzle. But once you have all the proper pieces and put them in place, guess what? Up pops a beautiful picture!

Have you ever noticed how even just one piece missing from a jigsaw puzzle seems to ruin the whole thing? Well… this is one puzzle well worth getting all the pieces to. We continue our journey. Our path led to a certain mountain range and we continue the climb. We have the strength for it. We will not stop until we know the whole land, possess every peak, enjoy every view. The good Lord is willing, and so are we.

20180829_171204 At age 62, I built this teepee with my own two hands, simple and serene. Peace we have, and peace we teach.

Jesus- Master Carpenter

“Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary…” (Mark 6:3)

God the Father could have chosen for Jesus to be born into a family of whatever trade he desired. He could have been a blacksmith and learn to work with fire and shape steel. He could have been a doctor, or merchant, or politician. All the possibilities that existed at that time, but he was born into the family of a carpenter, a man working with wood. So Jesus learned carpentry, and I’m sure he was a good student. I’m sure he became a Master Carpenter.

One thing about carpenters is they understand how important it is for something to be “level” and “square”. In this blog site I have spoke often of the church “short-forming” things. Cutting things short. Cutting things they ought not to have cut to begin with. We’ve talked about getting back to the early church fathers so we can get back to what Jesus actually DID, and what Jesus actually BUILT. Here is a real life story of what happened to me just this last week.

My dad is 86 years old and he decided the farm barn needed a new door. Not a small door, but the big roll away door that hangs on rollers. I offered to help build it, but he said no. All he needed me to do was help hang it. He wanted to build it.

A few days later I get a call and he is at his wits end because the door is not going together right, and he doesn’t know why? He’s wore himself out trying to figure it out. I told him I’d be out tomorrow. He said he would be gone all morning and half the afternoon before he would be home. I did not say this, but I thought to myself, “GOOD!” Because my dad likes to take over on things, and it’s his farm, his barn, and his door! So I knew what would happen. How could I tell him what to do with his door? He wanted my help because he was wore out, but tomorrow he would be ready to take over again. So me having a chance to figure out the problem while he was gone, was PERFECT!

When I got there I found the partially built door laying on the cement floor. There was a long 2×6 board running across the top and one across the bottom. He had tongue and groove planks to be interlocked and nailed to the two long boards. He had one plank nailed to one end of the long boards. This is where the door would start. Then he also nailed one at the other end. This left a big space of no planks between the planks, and my first thought was: “Is the door square?” So I took my tape measure and did the “X” thing from corner to corner and it was not. Got to fix that first.

So I knocked the door around a little, trying to square it up, but no matter what I did, it refused! What am I doing wrong? What is wrong with this door? I was beginning to see what my dad meant. I took the end plank loose and played with the boards some more. Still no luck! Forty minutes went by and I began to fear my dad would get home before I figured this out, and then I wouldn’t be able to think because of his constant talking. It was a real fear! So I prayed under my breath.

The door simply had to be square or it would never be a proper door. It would be nothing but trouble! But what is the problem? Finally…in desperation, I saw dad had cut the two long boards to a certain length. I assumed he cut them so they would properly fit the door opening. I saw the two end pieces he had cut off the boards. Picking them up, I compared their sizes. They should be the same size. But they were not! There was almost 6 inches difference! One board was 6 inches shorter than the other! This wall would never square in the normal way with two different size boards! And then I found out later, that he should not have cut them at all! They were already the right size! So I had to splice the cut off pieces back on!

This difference of 6 inches was very hard to see with the naked eye. Because of the way the wall was laid out, and two planks nailed on, the 6 inches just didn’t stand out. But when I compared the two cut off sections, I knew the boards had to be different. Once I discovered the real problem, then I was able to square the wall a different way, and we were soon on the way to building a proper door. I had it three-fourths done when he got home, and he could not believe I had it almost fixed and finished.

20180904_171847 When Jesus laid the foundation for his church, I’m sure everything was exactly square and level. The Master Carpenter set it right, but since that time men have built upon that foundation walls not level and not square. They cut short things they ought not to have. And what they have built will never square! I had to undo almost everything my dad did, before I was able to fix the problem he had created! But had my dad not been away, for me to have a chance, I don’t know if it ever would have been made right.

Over my many years of being involved in church, I’ve had the chance to offer direction many times, but since I was not the Pastor, my insight never seemed to be accepted, and we ended up down roads I eventually walked away from. And this is why I finally realized I needed to start something that fit the vision in me, and see what God would do?

How we build on what the Master Carpenter laid the foundation for is of utmost importance! As the leader of a flock, it must be taken with extreme seriousness!

“…But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have — Jesus Christ. Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials — gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. But on the judgement day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value.” (I Cor. 3:10-13)

It goes on to say much more, and I advise reading it all. We have done much at this blog site to expose how far our Modern American Church (MAC) has drifted from the original four-square pattern the Master Carpenter created. Many people seem to think it is no big deal. Believe me, if it were YOUR house, level and square would be a really BIG DEAL! But it’s time for this site to teach of other factors involved in our “unsquare” modern teachings. What is simplicity? What is serenity? Would you describe your life as simple and serene? Why is it we seem to be stuck in the fast lane of life while God flows in the slow?

These are factors also affected by our modern way of living, a way not square and not level with what Jesus taught. The unsquare and unlevel modern church says you are successful and full of the wisdom of God, and yet you have become slave to many things, and Jesus taught a different way. These modern builders are building houses of cards that will not stand the test of God’s fire. Jesus is still the Master Carpenter. Lets get back to what Jesus DID. What would Jesus do (WWJD), and what Jesus DID should be in HARMONY.

“Preparing a Place”

20180901_160730 “And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah…” (Gen. 6:12-13a)

“But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thou sons’ wives with thee.” (Gen. 6:18)

20180901_160744

It’s hard for a leader to lead if they don’t know where to go next.

Too many of our leaders today do not lead; they copy. They don’t have the visionary gift, so they copy whoever seems to have a successful formula. The business world operates the very same way. Companies become successful once someone has proven they have a winning product, winning formula, and then a whole lot of other people follow.

However, the Body of Christ is not a business. And the thumb is not meant to copy the foot. The brain is sending out signals but only a few in the body seem to have true leadership. A few hear God’s voice so plainly, they know what their assignment is, and they are not concerned about what any other part of the Body is doing. This is the only way the Body of Christ will ever function as a healthy Body. All the parts have separate assignments which come together at one point at the top! Like a Teepee! The Head of the Church, the mind of Christ, a vision of not “where we are”, but “where we are going”!

Our ability to get to that place depends on each part of the Body doing their particular assignment, without any regard, envy, concern, comparing of numbers, or money, or platform, or fame. Peter wanted to know what would happen to John, and Jesus said, What is that to you? Ouch!

But what do leaders do who have no vision? Are they truly leaders? Are they misplaced in the Body of Christ and doing harm? How is it they do not know where the cloud is moving? How is it they are stuck in yesterday’s glory, but the glory has moved on? The Shadow of the Most High is moving but they have built a mansion that cannot move. A monster that must be fed or it eats them. And in most cases, is already eating them.

I couldn’t live that way anymore. So I came out from among them and focused strictly on the one point of “Godwalking” like Enoch, and even his descendant, Noah. Now God has me building a place, because he wants to take a people there.

Today’s message from God is different, and it must have a different kind of place, a new wine skin. Leaders who lack vision fear days like these. End time days. Days of the forge and the purge. Days demanding change, motion, and direction. Days demanding ministry that is fluid, flexible, and consistent like water.

God has speeded up the clock on me, and brought more of my focus on the Teepee. It’s becoming more plain every day that Indianapolis is not the place I’m sent. I’m leaving this place faster and faster every day to live in another place. Could there still be groups in Indianapolis? For sure. But more and more of my focus and time is rapidly moving in the direction of Whitestown. God has provided a place for something to be built, and I have put my hammer to it.

My vision of it is a “Prayer Garden/ School in the Wilderness”. And by faith I believe I have books still to be published teaching these things. The writer in me still has not fulfilled his mission, but the place must come first, and from there I will write the books, and for all this to happen I must live at least a few more years. I must have the faith of an “old age” ministry, and we shall see if I hear God, or not.

20180901_160723 The place I prepare is for small groups, individual fellowship and teaching, a Prayer Garden, a Table of Fellowship, a place of simplicity, a place different. A place to get your center back, and hear God for yourself.

God has placed the timetable for this in the hands of my parents, now well into their eighties. They like their privacy. Currently, they still call the shots on how much this place becomes public, while I keep building. A few have access at this time. Some are taking advantage, and some are not. Maybe they never will. But when the floods begin to come, we will see who are ready? We will see who has oil in their lamps and a light shinning, or they are just a copy of some man-made program.

A case can be made from the Bible, that God is big on the power of a “name”. I think every minister should know his flock well enough, that he could give you a name that fits you more than you even know. He could actually change your name to something better. Like Saul, who thought he was Saul, but God said… PAUL! My Apostle born out of season!

We need true leaders in our day who hear the voice of God even through all the roar of a country going mad with pride, lust, perversion and sin. Hearing the voice of God is more than being able to teach his Word or preach a good sermon. It’s about knowing where the Body of Christ is going next. Good journey everybody. Because the Body of Christ is a Body of motion. We go places and do things. We fight battles and live lean, so we can move freely, like any good soldier of Christ should be able to do. Be not entangled. Live free.

“Who Am I?”

20180811_135130           What does it all mean? – Part 4

“From the personal Journal of Grandpa White Feather”

8-17-18> I’ve always been this way. Because I took God very seriously at a young age, I’ve always been able to live life very unseriously.

Life for me has been an adventure. I’ve taken risks. I’ve broken this world’s “rules for success” over and over again in my pursuit of God, but yet somehow found great joy, peace, and fulfillment. My marriage is awesome and we somehow raised five great kids. But I’m still breaking rules and adventuring with God even right now, because I’ve always taken God and his Word very seriously. And I need to add this, what is adventure if it does not occasionally scare you? Must not be much of an adventure.

I’m the guy who all my life has taken some of my vacation time to get away from everyone and seek God. That may not sound like your kind of vacation, and for most, it would not be. I’ve done it camping at “The Dunes” in northern Indiana many times. I’ve done it on top of Mount Mitchell North Carolina at least 3 times. I’ve done it in New York City 3 times. I even visited the church pastored by David Wilkerson while there. I’ve done it at the Black Hills of South Dakota, even from Harney’s Peak, twice. I’ve done it without leaving home I don’t know how many times. I’ve journaled every day, talking to God, for the past twenty years.

I’ve experienced many churches over my 62 years. Everything from Holiness to Baptist to Pentecostal.  I tried to fit in, was even ordained in one, was offered to be ordained in another, but in the end left every one of them because I did not fit their vision of things. So either there is something wrong with me, or I simply have an appetite different.

At age 61 I went searching for the “Simplicity of Christ”, and I found a Table! I believe I found Revelation 3:20, that goes all the way back to Exodus 24:11, and probably even into the Garden of Eden itself… The Lord’s Table!

Even on the day of his betrayal, the day of preparation for Passover, he did not take his close spiritual family to a Temple, but to a Table, His Table. I have always felt like a person of simplicity in a world where church has become complex. They say in today’s world you cannot run a church without also knowing how to run a business. Sooner or later I’ve always left, and now I have a Tipi. (Of all things.) And its done nothing but cost me money, paid me nothing in monetary terms. But oh what a delight it is to me, oh His Presence I have felt, and God keeps providing. There has been no shish-boom-bah there, but the Wind, great peace, and a small still voice hard to hear in all the shish-boom-bah.

So last night I shared with a good friend, still in the last church I left, what I believe to be a pearl of great price, a revelation of “The Lord’s Table”. The shift from Temple to Table. A simplicity. And then I got scared. My head started asking questions like: How can it be that everyone else seems to have missed this? How can I be the only one, or the first to see? Surely I must be wrong. What if modern church is right? What if I’m misleading people? What if I mislead one of my best friends, or those who read this site?

Now I know I’m not the ONLY one. BUT… I seem to be the only one in my circles. And I don’t know how few our numbers really are. I know there is some kind of a movement happening, but in all my blogging so far, no one in my area seems to have popped up saying we’re over here! Can we join you? Or will you join us? (Know what I mean?)

So… I started playing back in my mind the journey and study that brought me here. I repeated quotes from early church fathers I’ve read concerning how the Lord’s Supper was done in their time. I looked again at the Bible description of the early church in Acts 2 and Paul’s description in First Corinthians 11. I rehearsed what I studied in early church history, where Polycarp, and the Asia Minor churches begin standing against the Bishop of Rome, because of changes he wants to make to the Easter weekend, because a thing we now call “Lent” seemed to be instituted. Big changes were being made in the way the Apostles all taught to observe the Lord’s Supper and the Christian Passover.

I remembered how the battle raged spiritually for many years, until a Roman Emperor named Constantine, claiming to be a Christian, but was obviously very CARNAL if Christian at all, was given great influence in the church, and things were never the same in the church again! I remembered what the church became! Proving the foolish choices of that time! Did we ever really go back and make things right?

I looked at the complexity of most modern churches today. I did not see the simplicity or the fellowship of the Lord’s Table. I saw complex Temples with “programs” of strategy more than prayer and sacrifice. Programs using worldly methods, like a business, more than simply waiting on the Lord. Name tag machines, stage lights, expensive budgets, shish-boom-bah, user friendly like the church of Constantine, coming to Christ for worldly benefits or emotional hype, not true conversion and sacrifice of self and sinful ways. And I realized whether scared or not, I simply could not stay silent, or go back to that way. I already tried too many times. And now, I have seen too much.

And I also realized, all the other teachers of God’s Word are still out there. All the other churches are still out there. No one is being forced to listen to me. I’m simply one voice out there offering something different, like a different restaurant for those of a different appetite, like me. The Lord will add to this movement if it be truly of Him. If there be a 2nd Reformation at hand. We force no one to come, no one to stay, we don’t even believe in a Membership role, a salary, or pass a plate. Part of our simplicity is people are free to come and go as much as they like, and I am open for church 24/7, or as much as my body allows. Our schedule is very flexible and even individual to a point. We seek for God to order our steps.

What I’m teaching is available for anyone to discredit if it be not the Word of God. I’m an open book not seeking to deceive or manipulate. I don’t ask for money. As a matter of fact, we don’t believe tithing is even a part of the New Covenant in Christ! He who gives more (percentage wise), will be blessed more. He who gives less is blessed less. But God is more than fair in all of it, and the leader of it. A message on tithing would have been somewhat meaningless in the early church, when they considered all their belongings common. I don’t think anyone but a Jew still under the law was even thinking in terms of a 10 percent. It was all about Loving Upward and Loving Outward.

Loving upward, and in the power of that loving outward also. That’s how Jesus explained the law in the two great Commandments. That is the laws God has given us. Even in our definition of sin. Do nothing that would cause your brother or sister to stumble. So are we perfect? No. But do we desire to be? Does God’s love put that desire in us? Yes! So be obedient to what God tells you to give. Give it to what God tells you to. And don’t forget the poor.

I don’t know why I’m seeing this different kind of church based on simplicity and the Lord’s Table. I don’t know why there are not thousands also seeing it? But try as I may, I don’t see this wrong. I see the modern church wrong, and I have chosen to stay with the exiles. I have felt led to offer an Exile Restaurant of spiritual food from an Exile Menu. For you see, we exiles, as in Exodus, have our eyes set more on tents than we do mansions. More on simplicity than we do complexity. More on a Table than we do a Temple. We have a taste for a different menu, perhaps locust and wild honey! It’s just where the appetite in me, takes me.

We don’t like it when a Pastor gets up and talks about Jesus not having a place to lay his head, but in the next breath promotes the Harley Davis motorcycle ride the men are having the very next weekend. That leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Not the dish I came to church to eat. Sure, I’d like a Harley too! But…that’s a lot of money, and I’ve got more important things to do. I don’t need that temptation, distraction, thrown at me. And especially not in the same breath about the simplicity of Christ!

So after “the fear”, the doubt, knowing I’m not that smart, how do I find myself seeing these things while everyone else says I’m “off track”. I began writing my feelings, and this is my journal writings of these things. Set your affections on things above, not on things of this earth. Lay not up for yourself treasures upon earth….but lay for yourselves treasures in heaven …. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

So what do you do when the advice of the “Many Counselors” seem to be against you? And those counselors are the same ones who find no problem with Harleys verses Homelessness in the same breath. What do you do when 20 doctors are saying give the patient this treatment before he dies, and you’re the only doctor saying, No, give him this treatment before he dies? Did not all these Bible characters experience the same thing from the experts of their time?

Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Samuel, David, Elijah, Elisha, Daniel and his friends, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, the minor prophets, John the Baptist, JESUS, all the Apostles, Polycarp, early church fathers, Asia Minor churches, Martin Luther, and how many others could be named? Revivals are happening in poor places around the world, places of simplicity, but not in America. We have asked the question over and over, and to that our experts provide another program, and shove more money at it.

Here’s the thing, it’s hard to argue against the information I have accumulated. I have seen first hand the power of this message, and that is what has scared me. I know how much this can affect people, and I don’t want to steer people wrong, but if the king were not so naked, if the king actually had clothes, then this message would not be so powerful! But because this modern king has no clothes, it’s very hard for him to defend himself, and this has given rise to people like…me. Of which I know I’m not the only one, but I wish I could find some others. Whether I do or not, this message must still go forth, and perhaps one day there will be others in this area, and those who are yet to follow will not find it quite so scary.

I have always been this way. Taking God’s Word more seriously than this present world itself. I know this life is but a vapor, this sets me free to break man made rules and adventure with God. It has been my way for 60 years. Take a walk on the wild side? This is Tent Life. It’s simple. It moves with God. It feels good to walk with God. For me, it’s that simple. And for this, I need a tent, not a mansion, or a Harley. The Passover meal was immediately followed by Tent Life for the Egypt enslaved Jews. Now that I’m in the Promised Land, I still prefer a spiritual tent.

Our Lord has many Tables. But some he likes more than others. And some tables he is near to leaving. Some he has already left. And some he was never there to begin with.

So after all this a great peace settled in, because, yes, it is a fearful thing to step out against what appears to be God’s church, even as it blasts the music of Micheal Jackson’s “Thriller” to the neighborhood. That which claims to be God’s church. How strange. Jesus did not use flashy things to fish for men. Evidently Jesus didn’t know much about fishing, and neither do I. I’m a simple teacher, who prays daily that if I be wrong, oh Lord, please let it be known. And in all this, a great peace has come.

Yesterday I sat outside my Tipi, under a shade tree, in a cool breeze, drinking black coffee and thinking white thoughts, such as these. Today, I share such thoughts with you. More to be treasured than silver and gold, the still small voice of our Lord.

I was surprised to find this year, that evidently I have a green thumb. Our garden has been a great delight. May God’s garden be, in each of us.

 

 

“McDonalds or Texas Roadhouse?”

“What does it all mean?” Part 3 

20180606_124330

God has given me such a picture of how it all comes together, and my place in that picture. At first I certainly was not sure. There was no need to have another church sitting on another street corner that was just another version of what basically everybody else was already doing. That was the way I felt. And yet, I could not seem to find a church that fit the hunger in my belly.

So God has given me analogies of a spiritual civil war, and perhaps a 2nd Reformation, but to get even more detailed and more specific, he spoke to me just this morning of Restaurants. Different churches are like different restaurants. Some places are McDonalds and White Castles. Some are greasy spoons and Truck Stops. Some are Chinese or Mexican, or perhaps Italian. There’s Taco Bell and Subway. There’s also Texas Roadhouse and fine steak places. There are meals as fancy as you want to get if you’re willing to pay for them. But what is your church? Have you even thought about it?

All have something to offer. All will put food in your belly. And all will have different effects on your body and future health. Your physical future. Are you sure about what your church is serving? They all will put food in your belly, but is it making you strong, or on your way to a heart attack and expensive hospital bill? Do they have a vision truly inspiring, filling you with joy, peace, and passion? Do you feel alive? Or more like a robot, a zombie, going through motions as if alive, but not really. Just another rat-race, not a family.

So I asked God how to describe FWP, (Fellowship of the White Path), in terms of a restaurant of spiritual food. First of all, it was very plain we are not a McDonalds on every corner. We’re more like a family owned, one of a kind in the town, unique place that when suddenly discovered, some decide to make a regular part of their life. We are a piece of variety in the body of Christ. Presently, most people don’t know we exist, but word of mouth is slowly spreading. To be honest, I have not really worked that hard on evangelizing yet, as I have been busy perfecting our particular specials. I’ve had a lot of facts and details needing discovered and simplified. Those then become our special ingredients we mix into the menu we offer for your dining experience.

In some ways, with our emphasis on fellowship and family, we’re almost like a spiritual Tavern. For many lost people, a tavern has become their fellowship and family, their church. They don’t want the formality of church, but they connect and socialize at a local tavern. Every week they get with their buddies and see how life is treating them. Perhaps share sad stories, or unexpected victories, but they become a sort of family. A family of darkness, not drawn to God’s light, but it is the closest thing to church for them. Perhaps FWP is comparable to a Tavern of Light.

But all churches are to be a place for spiritual food and fellowship centered on God as our Father, Jesus as our Savior, and the Holy Spirit as our Teacher. God has spread an incredible TABLE before us, but every restaurant seems to have their own particular “menu”. Or specials.  Cracker Barrel have their specials, and usually a different one for every day of the week. How would you describe yours? What are the “specials” on the menu of your church? For example, King theology or Priest/Servant? There are many possibilities.

Here’s how I would describe some of the “specials” on the menu of FWP. First of all we have our “Missing Years Special”, because here is where it all started for me. Here is where I found the answers inspiring me to create another spiritual restaurant because there was a hunger for such a menu. By this I mean, what happened in those approximately 250 years before the Catholic church grew stronger and stronger? What happened with the men the Apostles directly discipled and established as Bishops of the early churches? How did that early Apostolic church somehow become Catholic? And why are our modern churches so silent on all this?

As we were developing our “Missing Years Menu”, I discovered an early church split concerning “The Lord’s Supper/ Passover Meal”! I learned that the Rome Bishop wanted to change from what the Apostles had instructed to continue! So now I had to develop a “Lord’s Supper/ Passover Special” on our menu, dealing directly with that. People are very hungry for both these specials. These particular meals were very hard to come up with before the Internet made the secret ingredients so readily available.

After taking a closer look at the description of the early church in the Book of Acts, and also Paul’s description in First Corinthians 11, I realized that “Fellowship”, “Meals”, and “The Lord’s Supper” was very high on God’s list for his church!   So…of course we had to put a heavy emphasis on our “Fellowship Special”! Which is one reason we do not even refer to our “Fellowship” as a church, but a “Fellowship”. “Fellowship of the White Path”. Jesus walked the Red Path of his blood, so we could walk the White Path of his fellowship.

For the early church, the Lord’s Supper was also known as “The Welcoming Table”, and this week I am about to try a new special, for the very first time at our Fellowship, of “The Lord’s Welcoming Table” in someone’s home whom we have just begun to disciple. I really believe this special will have a powerful effect that few have considered. I hope it becomes a regular meal on our menu.

We also have our “2nd Reformation Special” where we consider if the church really went back to precatholic ways in the 1st Reformation, or have we simply slipped from those ways in our modern days? Are we in the beginning of a 2nd Reformation? And what does it look like? It looks like a TABLE. Is this TABLE taking us back to homes?

And one more special. What I call our “First Corinthians 11 and Angels Special”, because somehow this one chapter actually sums up where God started and ended with me, concerning the journey we made. Somehow this one chapter literally highlights the two main points God showed me, without any other points involved. It is literally my journey in a capsule form, but that chapter taken by itself could scare you away, if not having the other specials on the menu with it. So…wow…don’t eat this plate alone!

Now of course there is much more on our menu besides these specials, like Ezekiel Chapter 8! But only by eating a few meals at our TABLE could you come to know the total affect of our spiritual FOOD and FELLOWSHIP. We do have a building, sort of, still under construction but usable, and of all things it is a “Tipi”! LOL. Which is a picture of beams, long legs all leaning together at a single point, Christ Jesus, and all made stronger because we come together in fellowship in HIM.

So from our Tipi building and spiritual retreat, our School in the Wilderness, our unique specials, the fact we are not a chain restaurant, but currently very small, unknown, and unique, we are definitely not found on every corner of your town. I would love to be in as many homes a possible, as the Good Lord would decide, but this is us, another place of unique fellowship and food in Christ, which God’s body has to offer.

Whether you choose to eat with us at this blog site, or if we ever sit at a real table together, FWP is open for fine spiritual food dining intended to make you all you can be in Christ. We hope to fulfill a hunger that is perhaps being overlooked in our modern day. I hope you find our food to your taste, and in the mean time we will keep cooking and spreading a table for those who do. This has been brought to you by “Fellowship of the White Path”. I am but a simple teacher who calls himself Grandpa White Feather, maybe because I just felt led of God to do so. Reach for God’s Sword, and make a difference where you live.
