Adventures in Podcasting

bible-sword-of-the-spirit Where do I begin?

Once upon a time I was led to leave the modern church religious system and go on a 9 day God-Quest in the Black Hills of South Dakota, where God spoke to me and my wife, and began to reveal many things. A path that has continued slowly unfolding day by day ever since that Quest.

Once upon a time, after returning home, I was led to build a very large Teepee, out of 2×8 beams and plywood. I built this by hand, and by myself, in the country, behind a big red barn, and under a large green tree, looking out over fields of corn. This was my 61st and 62nd years of age. This became my spiritual retreat, and it was ready for me when Orion’s meteor shower came. The weather was very rough, but I moved in that very night for a 2 week period. God spoke more, as I saw one meteor, along with the constellation of Orion the Hunter, his belt, sword, and bow.

Then God brought me back to our city house, small though it be, and we started a Fellowship called, “Fellowship of the White Path”. Jesus walked the red path of his own blood, so we could walk the white path of his own righteousness.

Once upon a time, God spoke to our little Fellowship about developing a Prayer Garden with a path running through it to a side door of our house, which would enter two rooms, and would be a free laundry mat for people struggling making ends meet. But this would require much shifting around of our house, so my wife and I would still have 1000 square feet of living space. Much renovation would be needed to put in an outside door to the Laundry Rooms, and create a new bedroom and laundry room for my wife. And so I began, Once upon a time.

However, my wife developed a medical problem. She cut back working and medical bills began to arrive. Surgery is scheduled soon and she will be fine, but in the meantime I had to take up part time work as a carpenter, and the house and garden project slowed way down, even to a crawl. But slowly we still climb. Her laundry room is almost done, then we begin the bedroom. We project Prayer Garden and Laundry Mat to open next spring, at Passover!

But in the meantime, once upon a time, I was working the carpentry with a young lady, and I began to speak to her of the “Missing 200 Years” most Christians have little knowledge of. 200 very important years and the lost knowledge. And as I spoke of this, she was most interested, and she had a suggestion. She thought I should start a “Podcast”.

A what??? Okay, I had some idea of what it was, but being of my generation, I really knew very little. Once upon a time this young lady explained to me and also played for me a couple of Podcast she enjoyed. I was immediately hooked on the idea.

Once upon a time this old man downloaded on his phone: “Podcasting for Dummies”.

There is a change coming. More and more this site will be relating to the subject of the Missing 200 Years, what it means for us today, how did we get away from the Church Jesus started, how there has always been a river flowing of people still practicing early Church history, but we are not told of it, and there are many great writers! A treasure trove of scriptural knowledge!

If I am successful, as an old dog tries learning a new trick, this site will become the launching pad for a Podcast I already have a name for, but not to be revealed until time. The house continues slowly moving towards its projected date for the Laundry mat, because we believe in the beauty of slow, not stress. The Fellowship continues. My wife will be well again, soon. And we will be Podcasting. You will be able to learn about the Missing 200, and what it means to us, while driving down the road, or perhaps doing dishes. No reading required! No having to stop what you’re doing in order to learn! This is an amazing time.

So I’ve read most of Podcasting for Dummies, and we just ordered a Podcast Kit due to arrive in 3 days. I still have much to learn and figure out how to do in order to be on the air. We appreciate your prayers. For me, the message is the easy part. It’s the technical stuff I have to learn, and Lord willing, so we shall.

I will be changing a few things on this site, to fit the new theme. As for the story of “Yinney”, if there are those who want more, please give me some feedback and I will start a page just for the continued story. I may do that anyway. It is in my heart to do so.

We are on no time schedule here. Next article I’ll show some pictures of the new laundry room, the Podcasting equipment and how we’re progressing. We have microphone, small mixing board, and headset for monitoring sound on the way, and we hope it will all hook up to this laptop. Then I have a very crude, dank, cement basement I hope to use for a recording room. It’s like being in a cave. I’ll try to do pictures of all these things, and anyone possibly thinking of Podcasting too, perhaps my journey will help you. Or maybe you already do this and can help me?

BUT THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES! As Grandpa White Feather attempts to stick a new feather in his cap. I believe as more and more people are leaving the large, expensive, cumbersome, impersonal mega-churches and hungry for something more like what Jesus actually did, we see a Micro-Church movement swelling, a new wine skin developing, and what does it all mean? A second Reformation? Or a great falling away? These are signs of our time. Even as homosexuality, and all forms of sexual perversion are strongly on the rise, these are signs of our time. Do not be left in the dark! We are called to be children of the day!

More coming soon. Thanks so much for participating in our journey, “Path Without End”. Our address for this site will be remaining the same, as amazingly enough, the thought of a path without end connects very well with where the Podcast is going. God knows all along what we daily discover.

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.

What’s it all mean? – Part 5

“Nothing personal, just business.”

For too many churches this has become their church mantra. “Nothing personal, just business.” God’s House was never meant to be a business, and was always meant to be very personal. Statistics show the church is losing this country. Other countries now send missionaries to America! We are being called the post-christian America. But I believe for every church who sticks with the original recipe Jesus gave us, those churches still have that one river flowing from the throne of God, and those who find that river know they have found the “family” of God!

I’m sorry, but when Jesus said he must be about his Father’s “business”, he was not talking about starting a McDonalds, or any other business. He was talking about birthing a spiritual family! A personal connection to God that radically changes us! I believe we are in another visitation of God in which people are waking up to the need for “Home Relationships”, not “Shopping Mall Encounters”. True fellowship in the love of God! They want real and they want personal, and so did Jesus!

The original recipe is found with the original Apostles and those they discipled. But how many churches do you know these days teaching their people about those “original” years of the church? When Jesus spoke of his Father’s business, a more proper translation is: “to be about his Father’s affairs” and/or “in his Father’s courts”. What Jesus taught his followers was anything but “business as usual”.

In my opinion, I’m not a business man but, it seems to me Jesus was antibusiness and very pro-relationship. When he had crowds in his hands, he walked away to be with a few. When people were eating his every word, he then said something very hard, driving most away. The church he started did not even seek large buildings for 300 years, until a heathen Roman Emperor strongly offered such things. He sent his 70 out with practically nothing! It’s a wonder they even survived, let alone succeed. Money was never his focus, and when he did speak of it he mostly spoke of its evils.

Some business men would say you got to take care of your people first, and then success will come. But most those business men are referring to the “customers”! The “paying” customers! Just let someone become too much of a drag on the company and see how quickly there is a parting of ways. For Jesus, the “bottom line” was not about red or black ink. It was about saving man, whatever the personal cost. And the poor was to be treated even as the rich man.

We are in a VISITATION. Some people have been waking up for some time now, but the massive elephant in the room, the Modern American Church, continues to be the most visible, while smaller, family oriented, people oriented bodies of Believers are quietly getting back to the original recipe of God, and making a personal intimate difference in the lives of others.

I remember when the Star War movies suddenly revived, and everywhere I went I was hearing the words: There has been an awakening, have you felt it? I remember thinking, is God using Hollywood to send out a message to all those who have ears to hear? How do we know when we are in a visitation of God? Jesus looked at Jerusalem and said if only you had known the day of your visitation, but they slept on.

Irenaeus was a disciple of Polycarp, who was a disciple of the Apostle John. As I was reading Ireneaus the other day, he pointed out that each of the times Jesus came back to his disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane, he found them sleeping. He tried to wake them, but each time they fell back to sleep, even unto the time of his betrayal, when the hour was upon them, then he commanded them to get up, for it was time for the Son of Man to be betrayed.

That moment was the beginning of a  3 day period equal to their worst nightmare! Peter even denies Christ 3 times that night, in order to live and not die. They went into fear and hiding. The hour of temptation was upon them, and they had failed to pray. But Irenaeus compared each of the times Jesus tried to wake them, as VISITATIONS from the Lord. I found this very interesting.

If we study Matthew 26: 36-46, we find Jesus actually separated the disciples into two groups. Of course Judas was not among them. In verses 36-37 we see he instructs eight of them to sit here, but then takes Peter, James, and John a little further on, closer to where he would actually pray. These three were like an inner circle of the inner circle with Jesus.

He told them to pray and keep watch with him. This does not look like a request, but more of a command, and yet they failed. The spirit is willing but our flesh is weak, and we fail so many times. He returns to them “three times”. In a sense, these were visitations of the Lord asking them to wake up and pray that they enter not into temptation. But each time they fall back to sleep. But notice, it appears Jesus only woke the “3”! It appears he only spoke to the “3”! He woke them twice! Two visitations! And then on the third visitation, he first tells them to sleep on, but then his betrayal arrives, and he commands them “Up”, my betrayer is here. At this point they physically have to rise, and the 3 days of horror begins. The spiritual battle is on.

Now I got this from Irenaeus who lived around 1,900 years ago. Evidently these guys were pretty smart, Biblically speaking. I also learned, if you check it out, prior to Samson playing with Delilah, it always speaks of the Spirit of God coming on him prior to one of his mighty acts, but after he begins his time with Delilah, those words cease to be said. Hhmmm. Interesting. Good stuff to note. Written by a man who sat under a man who sat under John who sat under Jesus Himself. Hhmmm. Irenaeus may be far from “our time”, but he was much closer to “Jesus time”. In my book that makes him a person of interest, as they say.

However, we make the point today, are we at the final visitation, when our Lord tells them to “sleep on”, but then his betrayer comes, (that day shall not come until the antichrist is revealed and there is a great falling away), and Jesus commands them to get up, because his betrayer is here? That last command to wake up and get up preceded three days of horror for the disciples, and all who loved Jesus. In Revelation we read that Satan is going to be given power over the church for a period of time. Whether these are people who did not pray in order to miss the hour of temptation, or what, I do not know, but it will be at least three years of horror!

If we are in such a visitation, are we in a 2nd Reformation? And who are the ones who will hear? It appears Jesus spoke to the inner circle of his inner circle. They should have passed that word to the others, but instead, let the others down, let Jesus down, and fell…back to sleep. Are our leaders doing the same today? Are we doomed to repeat history? Or can we be different? Are we trapped in a predestination we cannot change? I have to believe if God is visiting us, and if Jesus is speaking, then we have the chance to make a difference. Five of the Ten Virgins were able to light their lamps and shine. Five of the Ten were also taken. They escaped the hour of temptation. What a wonderful thing that would be.

This weekend one of our Fellowship was about to start with a new company in which he will be going back out over the road as a truck driver, and we will not be seeing him as much. We wanted to send him out right. Jason and I had a simple meal together, in his apartment, with his little dog, Zach, and that meal flowed into the sharing of some Matzah bread I made with my own hands, and some juice. We had the Lord’s Supper. We took Communion together. It was very “personal”. It was nothing like business as usual. I prayed for him. I asked God to send angels with him. And the Presence of God showed up so strong that neither of us could even speak for a few minutes! I can’t remember the last time I have felt God’s Presence that strong, and I have felt His Presence more than a few times, but something was special, God was very pleased in this simple thing we had done.

SO…if we are in his last visitation. If this is the last time he is telling us to rise because the church is about to be betrayed, the church (his body), nailed to a cross! Are you ready? Are you awake? Have you gone back to what Jesus DID? There has been an awakening, have you felt it?

Stop short-forming God’s Word, God’s Way, and God’s Will! Stop making a business out of his House! Get back to personal, and family. Get back to real and true! Get back to what God hath said and Jesus DID do! Love the Lord God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself. Love upward first, and outward also. It is a sacrifice. It is a cross. But that’s what true followers of Christ do. It’s just the way we roll.

“What does it all mean?” Part 1

20180728_145638 This journey has taken a lot out of me… but also put even more in. I somewhat resent the fact I have had to do all this research myself, and found no help from those who are supposed to be our leaders and experts. Those who have diplomas hanging on their wall. Those who are financially supported so they can be “full-time” in the ministry, with no secular job constantly draining them. They taught me very little concerning early Church fathers.

My path has not been perfect. I made some mistakes along the way, had to do a correction or two as I discovered more correct information, and felt a little stupid, but considering I’ve had very little help in digging these things out, I’m pretty happy with how well we have done. The Holy Spirit has been my constant guide, and very long-suffering, patient teacher. He is everything Jesus said.

But now I am at the “Big Question”. Now that I have a much bigger picture than I had before, “What does it all mean?” What is the effect of all this on me? How has this changed me? What will my walk with Christ be like from this day forward?

Let me say this: My body may be in America, but my heart is in the Kingdom of God. Every year Americans celebrate January 1st, New Years Day. But the change in me is so deep that New Years for me has become Nissan the 14th. I will start every year with my Lord’s Passover Meal, and I will start my every year thinking about unleavened bread, desert tents, a cloud and pillar of fire overhead, and pray to live in more perfect love, joy, and peace in my Lord each year. This is how my years will start from this day forward, as far as the power be in me to perform, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. This change goes so very deep. In order to fully explain I must go back to the beginning of my journey. And this blog site confirms that God started here with me, if one should check the early writings.

My journey started with God asking Adam to be the caretaker of a garden that did not seem to need care, because it was perfect. Think about it.

<<<<<*>>>>>

Early in my journey God began speaking to me about “proper table setting”. At that time the Lord’s Supper, Passover meal, sun-worship, short-forming God’s Word, none of these things were even in my mind. I simply understood that at some point, Adam had begun to love Eve more than God, and give her will first place in his life. I began seeing how this disrupted the “Table Setting” in the perfect garden, and began inviting the devil to God’s table, just as he was at the Lord’s Supper.

We all know he showed up. Eve was deceived and Adam lost the garden he had been put in charge of. Then I realized this was a picture of man being put in charge of God’s “Church”. God giving man a second chance. And the first question that came to me was, how well has Adam done with God’s Church, concerning EVE? If history repeats, because the nature of man never changes, how well has today’s Adam done with the Church Garden God has given him? Especially concerning EVE? This is where it all started for me, and then seemed to end at the Lord’s Supper, after a journey through a few other things in between. The Lord’s Supper became like a master key unlocking so much understanding. Until then, I felt lost in an ancient maze of very tangled webs.

I could never have predicted this beginning point, and I also never would have predicted where it was going. From Eve to Passover? And all this has to do with a TABLE? A TABLE God loves to sit at with us, except the setting is all wrong, and God is near to leaving, just as he did Jerusalem in Ezekiel 8?! How’s that for a Big Picture?

I’m very contemplative and reflective today. I’ve been locked in my cave for two days and now entering day three, but I’m about to finally leave. As I spoke of crossing a line a few articles back, then I finally got to have an open and honest conversation with a very close friend, and now I’m at a point of being able to SUM IT ALL UP. I want to do it right, because it has come to mean EVERYTHING to me. So I BEGIN these articles.

I’m about to head to my tipi for the day. I’m still locked away in my cave in Indianapolis at this moment, but the sound of wind in the trees is finally calling me, and God says “Go”. I have yet very much work to do on this place of spiritual get away. But I will not hurry. I will not lose my peace. I will soar more and flap less. God has the timetable on all these things. Perhaps there is help coming I know not of? I sit at that table with God, in perfect peace.

I started my new year with God at the Passover Meal, this year, even though I did not yet realize how big a thing I was tapping into. There was no “bunny” at my table, unless he was to be eaten! I’m so glad I did, even though it was such a feeble effort, like a baby’s first steps. God says do not despise the day of small beginnings. This is the beginning of my best years yet. I have that peace.

So…these articles are sharing the conclusions I have drawn, and the changes this new light has CAUSED in me. I hope you are interested. Tell a friend. These may be the most important articles I have written yet.

I can say this, I see a TABLE. I see a TABLE SETTING. And I see GOD sitting at that TABLE. (WOW.)

He wants to sup with me. He wants to sup with his people. And this TABLE should not be a place in which the devil feels at home! We are the Church wherever we go, and we should be a proper Table Setting. We need to show the world the real Jesus Christ. We are priest of that Table. We stand in the gap between lost man and a place called hell. A place called hell. This is no small thing. There is no greater CALL.

The Passover Meal was the beginning of “Tent Life” for the Children of Israel. I believe they were meant to take what they learned in the wilderness, into the Promised Land. But instead, many of them forgot what it meant to “move with the cloud”, and settled both physically and spiritually into “homes”, even “mansions”, that did not move with God. Personally? I’m just passing through here. May I never leave my Tent Life matrix. May I always know when the cloud is moving, and like a turtle who’s home is on his back, stay with God! Be the Godwalker, an Enoch people. Those who’s Table Setting pleases God.

Definitely to be continued.

A False Matrix

9ab7856d0aa12f6919db565aed5ab50e

Yes…a Truth Storm. But how would we know if we have been innocently deceived into a lie?

We all have some flaws in our brain frame, after all, none are perfect…yet. But what if we had some major deceptions? I mean, like some MAKE GOD “VERY” ANGRY DECEPTIONS. And I’m talking about the “saved”, not just the lost. I’m talking about what we call Church and a Chapter 8 of Ezekiel. Would you want to know? Or remain in your false reality?

How would you feel about those who sold you such a lie? They lied to you and you even paid them hard earned money for the lie, for their unexpert advice, mentoring, guidance. How do you feel about buying a lie from those claiming truth? Does that seem just? Can you get your money back? Not likely.

I discovered a TV series called “Shield”. It’s more of that Marvel super hero stuff I happen to enjoy, but in Season 4, some of them are taken into a Virtual Reality and they do not know it. The False Reality is very real in every way! Some of their team goes into the Matrix to rescue, but the hardest thing is convincing them of the unreality of what they see as real! In their minds it is much more likely the person trying to warn them is crazy! Have we been duped into such a Matrix? Why do our Churches not teach us more concerning the early Church fathers, like Polycarp? (And others.) What are they afraid of? What are they hiding?

It was the same in the movie “Matrix”. Neo did not know that in reality, his body was in a tube with all kinds of tubes hooked up to it, and he was being used as a human battery to power an alien world! If some small inner voice had not convinced him to take a chance, he never would have known, and he would have died happy in that tube! However… if the truth would have been revealed to him after his death…and it was revealed how his life had been used and wasted…then a pain that could not be corrected would have fallen upon him. A pain made even worse, because now nothing could be done about it.

This Helmet of our spiritual Armor is called the “Helmet of Salvation”. It is a brain frame given by God about the truth of salvation. How it works and everything about it. But if your brain frame does not line up with the “Lord’s Supper”, the “Passover Meal” he had that last night with his Disciples, then something is false! There are clues all around you, but do you see them? Do you have the knowledge to understand? Or has that been kept from you?

There is a tangled web of deceit involved that has so side tracked the Church that we are actually in violation of Ezekiel Chapter 8 in major ways! The Church is repeating Jewish history! And even as God was with the “exiles”, and against “Jerusalem” in those days, it’s going to happen again! Even as prophesied in Revelation when Satan is given power over the Church for 3 and a half years! But God was with the exiles!

History repeating. That’s the theory I’m offering, but can I prove it? Can I prove it enough for you to see it too? For your mind to be opened? And is there something God would have us to do about it even if we do see it? Is there anything that can be done? Well… as crazy as this sounds…you can choose to be one of the “exiles” instead of those still residing in Jerusalem. Who would have thought God would allow such a thing? And yet that is exactly what was happening in the day of Ezekiel, and is very likely repeating in the Church today.

If we had leaders who taught us more about what happened in the early Church, the battle that was fought and lost as the Church began going down the Catholic fork in the road, then we would know what’s happening. But our poor leaders “have not”, and so we “do not” know.

When the Protestants rebelled against the “Roman” Catholic Church, did we go back to that fork in the road and make it right? NO, we did not. And that omission is now catching up with us. Admittedly, the wheels of God’s judgement turns very slow, because he is so full of love and grace, but judgement does finally begin to spill over from a very full cup of sin!

The Lord’s Table, his Last Supper, is meant to be a “key”, a “template”, a “master code breaker” to everything “Salvation” really is! That Last Supper is the Passover Meal, therefore it is a master key also! This is why Polycarp, disciple of John, fought so hard to prevent the changes Rome was trying to make! It changed more than just a “technicality”! It has changed the whole picture of Salvation! That Helmet on our head is flawed! It’s a damaged brain frame! And it needs to be redeemed/corrected before the Bridegroom comes and half the virgins are left!

Five of the ten virgins are left behind. Nothing is going to change that. But do you want to be part of those five? That is what we are talking about here, which group we end up in.

From personal experience I know what it is like to come out of the Modern American Church (MAC), and become the “Exiled”. That is exactly what it feels like and how they look at you. But there is even more! In our self-centered, self-serving, ego driven, King Theology system, those still in Jerusalem do not truly mourn your absence, (maybe a few do, but most), have their eyes on the inheritance they believe you left behind! This prosperity driven christian cannot help themself! The brain frame they have is all about being the head and not the tail, the king and not the servant! This is the Matrix they live in! They do not see the error in their reality and do not even realize the actuality of their thought processes!

EZEKIEL 11: starting verse 2, highlights only.>  “The Spirit said to me, “Son of man, these are the men who are planning evil and giving wicked counsel in this city. They say to the people, ‘Is it not a good time to build houses? This city is like an iron pot. We are safe inside of it like meat in a pot.’ Therefore, son of man, prophecy against them loudly and clearly.”

(Verses 14, 15, &16a) > “Then this message came to me from the Lord: ‘Son of man, the people still left in Jerusalem are talking about you and your relatives and all the people of Israel who are in exile. They are saying, ‘Those people are far away from the Lord, so now he has given their land to us!’ Therefore, tell the exiles…”

And what did God say to the exiles? Hhmmm.

I believe very strongly in the word of this message! If you do too, then please tell your friends, notify your blogging people, I have only begun to scratch the surface of what is here. If you believe this to be a true word of our day, motivate others to read too. I suppose only a few out of the many will have eyes to see, but you never know who are the ones, and who are not. We do not judge. We scatter the seed in every direction, and some of it lands on good ground!

This message will continue Sunday. The questions must be answered. How are we in violation of the two most detestable things God lists in Ezekiel 8? And is it just a matter of a couple holidays, or has it affected the way we “Do Church” all year long? Is the way we’re “doing Church” making God angry and we do not even know? We are like the people in Jerusalem, hearing false prophets, thinking we are safe, thinking we are doing right and about to prosper even more, when in “REALITY”, God was very angry with them, God was leaving Jerusalem, he was about to bring tremendous judgement, a refining fire on them, and he was WITH the Exiles! This was the truth! This was the reality of the situation, and all those in the false Matrix of their minds could not see! How can we think we’re so close to God and actually be on the verge of his judgement? But we do.

In Jesus day, it was the “closed minded” who failed to see. Why would we close our mind to greater light? And if we already have the greater light, then what does greater light have to fear from lesser light? The true answer should be: NOTHING. 

If you believe this might be a true word from God, then please warn all those you can of what is coming. I do not know how much more plain I can be with this request. How much time we have I cannot say. (God is so merciful.) I’ve done a lot of hard work to make this site a place “easy” to consider if we might be reliving Ezekiel 8, and there is much more to come. Much more details and early Church history. This site might be your quickest and easiest way to offer warning and help to others. As I said, much more explanation is coming, and there is much in past articles also, for those who enjoy digging.

If you desire to search these things out on your own, much work will be required, and this site can help you do it. May God bless every effort you make to know the truth in our modern day. Living an ancient way in the modern day. So says Grandpa White Feather, and “Fellowship of the White Path”. (And am I Indian? No. As far as I know, I don’t have a drop of Indian blood in me. It only sounds that way. Just thought some of you might be wondering.)

The Great Disconnect

20171202_173614 Hi! Grandpa White Feather here with our midweek spiritual food for thought. There use to be a very popular question asked in which when you asked it, the question seemed to magically produce the answer! It really is quite uncanny the way this question really does produce (in most cases) an almost instantaneous answer.

Also, if the person asking the question is thinking correctly, it produces a CORRECT answer! Isn’t that a wonderful thing! But I am troubled by something, because even though the question is very powerful to produce correct answers…there is another question which should be just as powerful and produce the SAME answers…and yet it does not appear to have worked out that way. This is very weird and is cause for serious scrutiny, because herein lies a great mystery we would do well to solve!

The “Popular Question”; the one that became so well known and such a fad that people wore bracelets of “WWJD”, is “What would Jesus do?” If the mind of the person asking the question is of a proper intelligence and Biblical knowledge, this very simple question should produce a very correct answer. And it should be the SAME as the answer produced by my second question! But for some reason these two appear to have produced two very different answers. Hhhhhmmmm. What does this mean?

The second question is almost the same as the first, with only one word changed. For some reason it never became the “popular” question, except with me. When one looks at the two, you would expect them to produce the same answers, but they have not! What is this great mystery, this great disconnect?

The second question is this: “What DID Jesus do?” 

I’ve always considered my mind to work in pretty logical ways. Basically, when I think something through, 2+2 should equal 4. So…………..when I ask these two questions, my logical mind assumes that what Jesus “DID” do should be in harmony with what Jesus “WOULD” do! Make sense? (Does to me.)

I never worried about the two ways it could be asked because I ASSUMED the word “WOULD”, projecting forward, would simply agree with and line up with “DID”, looking backward! But much to my surprise, when I look at today’s church, what Jesus WOULD do does not seem to line up with what Jesus DID do! Huh? So is there something wrong with the questions, or the people answering the questions? Here is an example of what I mean.

Jesus came at a time in which the Children of God had slid into a very complicated and demanding religious system in which stone temples were focal points of. But what DID Jesus do? He condemned that system on every level! And he simplified it at every turn! He got in trouble every time he spoke in one of those stone temples! He took their multitude of laws and reduced them down to “TWO”!!! Wow! He said MY yoke is easy and MY burden light. He shifted everything away from “expensive stone temples” to “simple home tables”! And yet today, when asking what WOULD Jesus do, it seems to have produced the very thing he DID NOT DO! We don’t have family, we have a system!

Why would Jesus reproduce the very kind of thing he fought against when setting his living example for us? Why would he reproduce today what he was tearing down yesterday? Why would he change his mind and produce a system that DID not recognize God was doing a new thing, and even went on to crucify him? They did not even recognize God when he showed up! Does this seem logical by any stretch of the imagination? Is this what Jesus WOULD do? To contradict what he DID do? And undo what he did do? What WOULD Jesus do, and what DID Jesus do? Should these two question not produce the same answers? For the One in which there is no shadow of turning? The same yesterday, today, and forever?

Even today I see the church taking the same fork in the road that produced the Catholic church system in which the Protestants rebelled against! But now we do the same? We DO what we UNDID? We’ve hooked up with a Constantine and we’re trying to use political power to force the will of God on heathens? Politics do not change hearts! The work of the church is to change hearts! The swamp will not be drained! Babylon is already rooted in and will come back with a vengeance! Politics is not the answer for the church! Render unto Ceaser what is Ceaser’s and unto God what is God’s! We will not change a single heart through politics, but we do cause the heathens to blaspheme the name of God! Jesus never sought political power! He said his kingdom was not of this kingdom! It drove the apprentice apostles crazy!

It is our duty to vote, and vote in a godly way, to have some idea of what is going on, and I’m sure God calls some of his children to pursue government positions, but God’s kingdom advances by changing hearts, not seeking to force his will upon an unbelieving people! So cast your vote faithfully, but preach Jesus! Not a political party or president! Do not let him influence the voice and will of God for the church, like what happened when we left what our early church fathers established! (But we’re already doing it.)

I hear the Spirit of God saying, Slow down, and hear God. Simplify! My yoke is easy. My burden is light. Come to my TABLE and sup with me. Be more conscious of the Temple I raised in three days, not a stone temple like in Jerusalem! I have not changed! What I DID do is what I STILL do! Do not repeat the history you once condemned! Come out from among them and be separate! Live different! Know my ways of peace, freedom, and Spirit!

No wonder the church of Laodicea made Jesus so sick of his stomach, he threatened to spue them out of his mouth! But he also offered to them:

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Rev. 3:20)

God’s Kingdom is about the Lord’s Table. It’s about a family coming together at a Table and showing the world the LOVE we enjoy in God’s Kingdom. Will Jesus find true faith when he returns? After the Holy Spirit filled the Apostles, they finally understood the difference between an earthly temple, and God’s heavenly Table. The Book of Revelation ends with declaring there will be NO Temple in the new heaven! (Rev. 21:22) But there is a feast of the Bride, and the Presence of God! (It’s just that simple?)

“Death of the Old Man”

20170430_132246 It has been my hope that I’m not taking this journey alone. It has been my hope that when others would see strong evidence, provided by the early church fathers, and confirmed in our Bible, that there would be those stirred from our modern comforts of mediocrity to join in this journey. Jesus walked the Red Path so we could walk the White! Do we feel that? Do we identify and embrace it for ourself? Do we show our love for Him in the same way He showed it for us, by our cross? Are we Americans “blue light special christians”? (small “c” intentional.) Is that good enough for us? Is that what we want to be as we embrace the pleasures of this world?

Why is it so important that Polycarp stood up against the change Rome wanted to bring to the “Christian Passover Supper”? Why is all of this so important? Do we not care that we’ve been sold a weak and sickly cow, instead of a strong and healthy bull? We’ve been told, “Buy into this! This will make you strong in the Lord!” But like Jesus said to the church of Laodicea: “…and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”

I did not know I would discover a “Master Key”. God in his wisdom provided a Master Key, and he made it the Lord’s Supper! (How incredibly like God!) Once I saw the change of emphasis that for some reason Polycarp seemed to be so intense and distraught about, everything else began to unfold. I had explored some false rabbit trails that wasted my time, twisted my mind, left me near ready to give up; but when I began trying to understand what Polycarp was so upset about, the MAZE started opening!

The Cross! “By faith Moses when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt…” (!)

And God chose “THIS MAN” (Moses!), to be the one through which the Passover Meal would come about! The choice Moses made, before he was then chosen, is symbolic of everything we are talking about. This is the choice we made at the altar that day we got saved! A choice to leave this world for the greater values of the Kingdom of God! But are we indeed doing this, or have we like so many others… slid with the slight-of-hand?

Let me show you this same shift in another way. It is amazing how many ways this “slight of the devil’s hand” has permeated everything. As in our short-form Lord’s Supper, which as we celebrate the Lord’s Meal, the Passover, has become a Resurrection service on Sunday, we call Easter. In most churches even Peter Rabbit comes to church on that particular Sunday, but that is not the item I’m talking about. Keep your eyes on “the shift”, the slight of hand. (Peter rabbit is just  by-product of the magician’s show.)

Did you REALLY understand the supernatural event your Baptism symbolized and testified to the world on that day? Assuming you were even told how important it was for you to get Baptized, and assuming you knew that meant complete immersion in water. I’m sure many of today’s Pastors would argue with me on this, because of the way we have been raised to think, the slight-of-hand; but the emphasis of that Baptism is the DEATH OF THE OLD MAN! Once again, the emphasis is meant to be DEATH! And why is that so important?

You may have been sold the sickly cow of “once saved, always saved”, but that simply is not true. If we thought we were being baptized into an easy ride to heaven, that simply is not true! If we don’t make the same choice Moses made, that resurrection is not yet ours! And this is all vividly shown in the Christian Passover Meal. What we have right now is that cross! The resurrection is future! He that endures to the end shall have it. And yes, nothing will separate us from God’s love. He will always love us even if we prove to be the sinner he has to judge on judgement day. He loves every person alive on this earth, and proved it on that cross when he died for the sins of “the world”! But we show our love for him through a death also, a death to our old man, and a life of sin, a life spent on SELF.

The DEATH is the important thing, because if the DEATH happens, the walking in the NEWNESS of LIFE will be automatic! (By that I don’t mean “easy”, just that it is sure to happen. A good tree will bear good fruit. Agape love.God’s love.) But God knows who we are, and our continual need to embrace a cross, and this only happens through the power of the Holy Spirit. Satan knows he’s got to divert our eyes from the cross, if he is going to pull off his evil magic show. The master of illusion, sucking us in.

ROMANS 6:3 > “Know ye not, that so many of us that were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?”

I was baptized at age of twelve, and even at that age, I wish I had been required to sit down with the Pastor and been taught “in detail” what that Baptism was supposed to mean to me, other than an escape hatch from hell. The scriptures go on to say we were baptized into his DEATH, “so that” we could be raised into a “walk” (present tense), that the world would say…Wow! Look at the change! Can you believe Moses has actually left us? He left all the pleasures we Egyptians gave him? He’d rather suffer with those stupid Israelites, who claim to be the people of God? Look at them! How stupid! Obviously our Gods are much more powerful than whoever their God is. Who would want to live like that? He deserves whatever he gets! After we were so good to him!

However…as they say…it is not he who starts a race well…but he who finishes well. I got to say…Egyptians are not known for finishing well in the Bible. And I guess they convieniently would not consider how evil they were being to God’s people, as they were being good to Moses. I’m so glad Moses had a heart to see the truth, and not serve self, even when his personal cost was so high! He lost everything but his life, and barely kept that.

I need to add one more thing before we close. As the Israelites were rushed out of Egypt that Passover night, God was not finished painting US his picture. That painting even goes into the Promised Land and unto David. But the first thing we see is the Israelites trapped against the Red Sea, and Pharaoh in hot pursuit! As I hope you know, the Red Sea became a picture of Baptism immediately following salvation. (As immediate as possible.) But it is a Baptism of DEATH!

Pharaoh and his armies die there, but also the Israelites are not delivered into the Promised Land on the other side, but into the WILDERNESS, where they will receive the LAW! And remember this, because they failed to “die to self” and trust God, the “OLDER GENERATION”, or “THE OLD MAN”, all died in the wilderness! (Except for the 2 who successfully died to self.) The wilderness is a picture of the old man dying! And then there is another “CROSS”-ing, (a 2nd CROSS), a picture of complete surrender, maturity, fullness of Holy Spirit, into the Promised Land. Wow! What a painting! But what has Satan done in his slight-of-hand?

Today…many people think you can skip the wilderness, not die to self, and jump right into the Promised Land, which they picture as a place where they live in milk and honey. (Have you ever studied their life in the Promised Land??? Maybe we need to study in detail, God’s version of milk and honey?)

In Satan’s painting, a perverted image of the real, the wilderness is belittled and lost in all the talk of the Promised Land. Because Satan knows, if he can keep our eyes looking back to Egypt, we will be judged in that wilderness, and never make that second “CROSS”ing. Can it be any more plain?

I really wish more people would comment on how they feel about our modern version of Church. I’m looking more and more at Home Church, Micro-Church. This is a movement that doesn’t seem to be going away, and is growing stronger day by day. I will likely write about what I learn eventually, but my journey still has a lot of “checking” to do. I recently read a whole book on the “Church of Christ”. It did cause me to get a little stronger in defending my faith. But in the end, I still did not see what I’m looking for. (Not that they don’t have something to offer, as today’s churches go, but it still don’t fit what I believe is out there…somewhere!)

I know I’m not the only one having these thoughts about our modern church. But how many of us are actually making an effort to “change”? Learn, seek, and find. I do not know. If the amount of comments I receive on this site is any indication, then I would guess not many. Most are content in our modern mediocrity, or see no real problem. The sickly cow must be blind also. How convienient for the devil. If this article seems hard to you, compare it to our Lord’s words to Laodicea. You’ll find I’m a kitty-cat compared to HIM. Selah.

My journey continues. I think I got a long ways to go, but I’m not giving up, and I’m very excited about the progress I’ve made so far! I’ve seen so much I never saw before. We are doing a Christian Passover Meal at our house this 30th of March, starting at sundown and running to midnight. So far I’m having trouble finding anyone to do it with us. Some of my friends no longer trust me because I left “their” church, and since I have not found another yet. And then other people I know, don’t like the idea of being up so late with their children, and for something they don’t see the importance of anyway. I’m not discouraged because this is my first year doing this, a year for learning, and once I do find a church, it will be with a people who do see the value of such a thing, or I won’t be going there. Next year will likely be different.

I have done much research, study, and writing of all these things in previous articles. So if you have questions about how I got to the place I currently am, I have detailed pretty much every step of the journey. It’s all here if you have a desire to know. Our Lord willing…more to come soon…including our experience in the Lord’s Passover Supper. The Jews believe that night is the most powerful night of all year to be set free from something. Well…I know the name of Jesus is always FULLY powerful…but if something in that night increases my own faith, humility, and obedience? Well, who’s to say?

“Fellowship of the White Path” / Grandpa White Feather.

Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness before his baptism in the River Jordan, the same 2nd River Israel had to cross. The Jews spent 40 years! Hhmmmm? (And then a dove decended, symbolizing the Holy Spirit. Wow! What a picture!)
