“Adam and Eve” #1

20200620_161834 Time is not in our favor, as I begin this new series. It’s not about the current distractions of where we are, but it’s about the cold realities of where we’re going. Checkmate!

I suspect Satan said something like that on the day Adam and Eve fell to sin and lost EDEN. We are repeating history. We are repeating the garden! God showed us at the beginning what would be at the end! It really is a circle, it seems. A circle we are trapped in because of man’s sin nature. We just can’t help ourself, and Satan is preparing to say “Checkmate!”, again.

There is much we need to understand about the beginning, in order to understand the end. We have questions to ask: 1.) Why did God create Adam without Eve, when He already knew Adam would not be complete, and Eve would be created? Why the delay? Why did God take the long route to creating Eve? Why did He have private time with Adam first? Why did he provide record of instructing Adam about not eating of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, but no record of God instructing Eve? Who told Eve about the Tree? This is important! And who told her you could not even touch the Tree or you would die? This is important! What does it all mean? And why is it of such importance to us today?

“Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living soul.” (Gen. 2:7)

Do you think Adam understood the “death” God spoke of? He had never seen death before. There was no death. How long do you think it took, after Adam obeyed Eve, before he realized he had really stepped in it! And they were about to lose everything! How long do you think it was before he realized the magnitude of his error? And there was no putting the toothpaste back in the tube.

As part of the curse to the woman, the man would rule over her. She would desire to control her husband, but the man would rule.

“And you will desire to control your husband, but he will rule over you.” (Gen. 3: 16b)

You ladies say the dominion of man is a curse to live with, and so does God! For he gave it as part of the curse. But what are the reasons of God for this line of responsibility, line of authority, chain of command He seems to have established? As the baby comes out of the woman, and the woman came out of man, and the man came out of the dirt but was breathed into by God, so goes the chain of command? Children answer to mother, mother answers to husband, husband answers to God?

His body may have come out of the dirt, but it was a lifeless thing, a shell, an empty chamber awaiting. Adam, the life force/soul came out of God as God breathed into him. But what does any of that matter to us today?

Well…Adam is about to lose the garden again, and Satan knows he already has. Also, we are approaching something that has never been before! The gods are about to be flipped! The goddesses are about to ascend over the gods! Asherah will lead and Baal follow! Gaia will lead and Uranus follow! A repeat of Eve leading and Adam following, but on a much larger scale! Never before in the earth on a scale like this! And never before in the church! But it shall be and what will it mean? Adam will suffer exile and disgrace again. And God will judge Adam again. But this time Eve is proud of her work, and thinks she can create a new garden of Eden of her own design. The earth will burst forth in beauty! Mother Nature, mother of all creation, goddess Gaia, will prove herself worthy of god-supreme!

The chessboard is in play. The opponent has been doing much moving of his Bishop and Knight. The Rook does not seem to be in play. But the Bishop and Knight are targeting your King! Check! Your opponent declares! Covid 19! Racism! But you see it coming. You got a good eye on that Bishop and Knight. You scramble to safety and ready your own Bishop for a defense he does not see! You’re almost there! But then… “Checkmate?” It was the Queen all along? The Queen of Heaven you did not see? Spoken of in Jeremiah 44: 15-27! Also in Jeremiah 7:18! And other scriptures under the name of Asherah! Woman is on the rise! Gaia is on the rise! And she hates all forms of male gender dominance, including the Bible and the church! But she will declare us the “haters”, not her own green agenda!

We have much to consider. Yes…God put us men in charge, ladies, and is that a blessing or curse? We still answer to HIM. And He misses nothing. And he does not miss when we don’t treat you ladies right, also. Don’t worry, it was Adam that God called out of the bushes first, to answer for the sin. And now…as we have so messed up the church…sex and lust run rampant. Power, Ego, and materialism run rampant. Love of money run rampant. Eve running rampant. How did we miss it? Adam is a lousy chess player to not see it was the Queen who was the real threat all the time, as she continues moving slowly into position.

Be very wary. Be very wary indeed. the Green Movement is more than it seems. Asherah, Gaia, Ishtar, Astarte, the moon, Venus, all the false gods of the past are alive and well in the pews, pulpits, churches, and cities of this world, but Satan needs the gods to flip again. The conditions will be right for his master plan, once the goddesses begin to rule.

Personally, I think the name “Gaia” is the one that will be used most in this final move. We’ve got to look at all of this much more closely. It still goes all the way back to Baal. The nature of man has not changed.

Looking to the Future” #4

20200620_161851 Per last article, I promised a picture of my Samurai sword mounted on the wall above my open Bible. That sword went with me to the teepee as I spent the 5 days separated to God. Details of what all this means was shared in the previous article. But now it is time to continue forward.

The River Time never stops flowing. We can try standing still but the events will continue rushing at us. If you dare to look upstream, you will see things coming at you. It takes no prophet to know this is going to be one of the potentially wildest elections we have ever seen. Frustration levels are rising like the water in a rushing river. Frustration and anger are the step brothers to violence. We need to be praying for PEACE like never before, but I’m not sure the prayers of a worldly church will change the seeds we have sown.

We have looked up the river. We don’t like what we see. However, it’s a great time to repent of how self-centered and self-serving we have been, and become the Priesthood we are called to be, and do the work we are called to do > the changing of hearts.

Our next series will be: “Changing Hearts”. (But you may not like it.) Lets see if we can kick it off.

Guess what? Las Vegas is a “Sin City”. NYC is a sin city. Detroit is a sin city. Nashville, Atlanta, Chicago, Baltimore, and I can personally attest that Indianapolis is also a sin city. Any place you find man, you will also find SIN, because we are cursed with a sin nature. That’s what God says, anyway. And I happen to believe Him. I also see a lot of evidence to support that belief, not only in my own life, but all around me.

I recently learned that more babies are aborted in NYC than actually live! In 2016, 48,000 pregnancies. 49% were aborted. 47% live birth. 4% miscarriages. Tell me SIN is not alive and well in mankind. Call it what you will, but this is heartless!!!

Man has learned he must create laws, and have powers of enforcing those laws in order to protect us from our own sins. It is good to always try creating a more perfect society, and even now we’re in the midst of growing pains long overdue, but it will never be perfect. Man is not capable of perfection. Planet earth is not capable of perfection. Call it whatever you want. You don’t like the word SIN? What other words might fit? Stink’n Think’n? Everything is a disease now days. Lets just call it a disease! What difference does it make? We are morally flawed! And to this God has established a High Priest, whose name is Jesus, and a Priesthood of all the Born-Again, those who answer the call when they hear Jesus say, “Follow Me”.

So where is this series going? It’s going where we need to go. “If my people who are called by my name will “humble” themselves…”

We need our pulpits to stop preaching so many success seminars and low-esteem counseling and get back to the humbling acknowledgement of our sin nature that needs a heart transplant! Pride, ego, power hunger, money loving, selfish ways is just more SIN! It is not the love of God, that so transforms a heart that even our definition of success is transformed!

SINS have been exposed of late, even caught on video, sins of hate and violence, but no sins of true love. Love does not sin. When you truly love someone, you do everything you can for them, you only want their very best, and when they hurt, you hurt. This is true love, but again, flawed man is not capable of perfect love…so God gave us a High Priest… and a priesthood…to do the work of the church…in this earth…until He returns. How have we been doing of late?

I’m probably not liked for this, but I watched a Christian movie today and it just about made me sick! I can imagine our black brothers watching this movie. Lord have mercy. A mother and daughter had a beautiful ranch. The daughter could climb on her horse and go riding out over the beautiful acreage of their property. It was a wonderful life in every way. The husband and dad was an incredible man who loved God, helped people, and also fought for his country. He suddenly died fighting for his country. Now it was just the mother and daughter and ranch.

They continued living in their fine house. The daughter continued riding her horse over the open land. The mother was no rancher and decided to sell all the cattle because they needed the money. Soon the mortgage payment was not being met and the bank began sending warnings. Neither the daughter or the mother got jobs. They just kept enjoying their ranch, something few people could ever afford. The mother was not telling her daughter of this terrible thing happening to them, but she began crying out to God in prayer. They were going to lose their beautiful luxury lifestyle if God didn’t do something. Oh please God, save our ranch. We need a miracle!

As I watched this movie, I considered the prayers God hears every day from around this planet. Prayers from someone about to be beheaded for their faith, or homeless and no place of shelter, exposed to all the harsh cruelties of nature, and no food, starving, praying for a little bread to eat, children they love as they watch them suffering. And here was this woman and girl so upset because they might not be able to have a fancy house, lots of land, elegant food, and horses any more, and might have to go to work. Oh please God, we need a miracle.

If my people will humble themselves? (But they said, we will not. > Jeremiah 6:16)

To make matters worse, people decided they deserved to keep their place. The town rallied to their aid and because of love, they donated a lot of money, and got them well on their feet. And then the daughter suddenly got the idea they could give riding lessons to children to earn the money they needed to stay afloat from there on. The message was if you have enough faith you can live like a king while others drown and starve. God will answer your prayers for a high lifestyle while others don’t even have food to eat. The mother was now able to sleep in peace. Her problems were all fixed. She had need of nothing, but what of all the others?

Am I sick to feel this way? We make movies like this? What DID Jesus do? Not, what would he do? But what DID he do? Are we so badly flawed there can be no changed heart? Well, we know there can be, don’t we. But Christians have been fed too much cotton candy for too long now. Priesthood means sacrifice. It always has, and always will. Do we still want to follow Jesus? If you’re true blue, you do. We know that MORE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT will melt any hard heart so that we care about others as much as we do ourself. Some even go beyond that, but first we need to be humble and honest enough to see the SINS that are keeping us powerless, and truly call on God for a transformed heart by the POWER of the inflowing Holy Spirit, like a River that never stops, because we keep drawing on Him. Amen.

I firmly believe it is a supernatural work of God that lifts us above “ourselves”. That is why we must get back to seeking the Holy Spirit in the church again! And God is simplifying His church, so we’re not bogged down in a lot of material things keeping us chained to a need for more money, more money. We are free to be the people of God. When the world sees that again, hearts will change, and we will have a more perfect world. Realize this, the more sin there is, the less perfect everything is. I see a world intoxicated on sin and with no plans to change. They can scream all they want about all the imperfections, but there will only be more, no matter what they do, but in all this, we have been made a Kingdom of Priest. Opportunity abounds!

“He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God his Father, to him be glory and power and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (Rev. 1:6 NLT)

“Is this a Stupid Question?”

cart-before-the-horse This last weekend in Indianapolis, 7 people were shot, and 2 died. No police were involved in these events taking place in minority areas of our city. Our poorer areas of the city are slowly evolving into war zones and have been for some time. My question is…

How motivated are the police going to be to go into these places where they are so hated, and if they do anything wrong in these high pressure, split second, life threatening events, they will be crucified? I’m not talking about what we saw with the police in Minneapolis, but the real stuff that happens every day! Guns and violence erupting in a split second! How much would you be willing to risk your life and career under these current circumstances? The people who seem to need the police the most, (and we all need them), but are they not cutting their own lifeline? Or am I just stupid?

I still believe it is a matter of faith and heart. There is a Reverend Charles Harrison and the Ten Point Coalition working desperately to bring a peaceful spirit to these communities. There is evidence suggesting they have made a real difference in some areas, but where are all the good church people in those communities that could join that effort?

There is no light except the light of Christ. If minds and hearts are full of darkness, then so will be the neighborhood, even on a sunny day. Can law enforcement or counselors change that? Unless they have real light to offer, I think not. We need a massive heart transplant, and not the kind that any medical doctor can do. I think Reverend Dr. Charles Harrison has the right idea if it leads to truly changed hearts.

So… will we see higher and higher death rates, crime rates, criminal activity and family disputes in minority areas until our new answers have a chance to work? Will these people suffer even more? And what are those new answers? Street counselors armed with psycho babble and no police backup, in the streets stopping gun toting thugs and gangs? Have we identified the real problem, or simply “avoided” the real issue again? Is this a real answer? Do we reap what we sow?

The tragedy is, and I mean real tragedy, as in TRAGIC! 7 more people were shot over the weekend because of violence filling the streets, and no one can speak of the real reasons, unless those of their own neighborhoods do. It does no good for anyone else to say anything. Past efforts have proven that. We might as well stay silent, because unless we’re one of them, and I am not, evidently, we should not speak, because we know nothing.
