“Sanctuary” #2

I have not written in 17 days. I have held my words as the perfect storm continues because really…why not? Pretty much everything happening has already been spoke of here, until now. And now…finally…the battle that needed fought has begun. We are finally at the battle we needed all along. And who shall prevail? A church needing thrown into the sea? Or have we changed? have we truly repented and a change has come? Have we regained an anointing in which God hears our prayers? Will we see what God will do to the Egyptians? And so…I feel led again to write about “Sanctuary” in this chaos. Because very violent times are coming. But those who are Skypeople will know Sanctuary.

Today I want to add a recommendation to your Sanctuary. I recommend if at all possible… you add “NATURE”, God’s natural creation. As I sat here this morning looking out through these French Doors that have a very small view of a piece of nature surrounded by city, I felt great peace. But then I would look away and a radio I had playing stirred up restlessness and anxiety. I could literally feel the affect on my spirit and emotions.

I then turned the radio way down low, so I could still here it, but I could also tune it out. It was a news talk show giving current events and etc. Every time I looked out at our small bird sanctuary I felt peace flow in my soul. Every time I listened to the words of the commentator I felt stress. What is it about NATURE / God’s creation, that has that effect?

There is something about the silence of nature. It’s not really silent, you know. We speak of the stillness, and it is so…but at the same time were hearing the wind flowing, perhaps a creek rippling, or a bird chirping, and yet we feel peace and silence. How does it do that?

I have heard NATURE called the “Silent Witness”. It speaks words we do not hear and yet we hear, even when we don’t think we are hearing. Consider these scriptures: “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above declares his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.” (Psalms 19:1-4 ESV)

Notice how those verses use words like: “declare”, “speech”, “words”, “heard”, and “voice”. Yes, nature is not silent, and because she is not “man-made, but God-made, it declares the words of God. Only those living in denial block those words out to their own destruction. But most of us will benefit greatly by bringing some of God’s NATURE into our Sanctuary.

As far as this election goes, the words and prayers needed are: LIGHT BE! EXPOSURE BE! Let there be no shadows for them to hide! Let all be revealed! And if the Church is too unanointed to produce such results? If solid proof is not brought forth? If God is not yet willing to expose the Egyptians but more concerned about exposing Jonah? Then so shall it be. Here comes the raging sea, until Jonah can pray a fervent effectual prayer.

But the fight is finally on. The battle that needed to be. Whether it takes 2 weeks or 2 years, Israel is finally coming out from behind the hills to face Goliath. But David only won because God “ANOINTED” him so. Let us pray we have that same ANOINTING, and let us seek it until we do! I pray we have learned at least that much.

Therefore…find your Sanctuary…create a proper environment to hear the Lord…and whatever he tells you to do, DO IT! Be Skypeople. Serve the Skykingdom, not this underworld, and we will see what God will do with the Egyptians! Amen.

Spiritual Disciplines #2

Where to begin?

I’ve spent all weekend pondering and praying as to what is the best starting point when it comes to spiritual disciplines? I think this may be the most important point. We can think of so many disciplines that could be listed and are important, but this must be more than just a list. The true warrior of God is not about living it “list”, but it is about becoming a Godwalker, and how do we do that?

Enoch or Esau? (That is the question.) Enoch pleased God and walked with God. But Esau sold his birthright for pots of beans. And please understand, it wasn’t just one pot of beans. Esau made that choice every day! God’s Word gives us the details of when he finally crossed the path of no return, but his daily lifestyle leading up to that ultimate choice had set the stage. He didn’t just get there in one day, he had been sowing the seeds of his careless garden for years! He had been embracing beans and ignoring God for years!

Enoch, on the other hand, had been in love with the Presence of God for years. He daily sacrificed beans for the Presence of God, more of the Holy Spirit, to be empowered of God to be a Godwalker, and God took him! God actually raptured him off the earth! An early picture of what we believe will happen again in mass, in the rapture!

The first spiritual discipline is cultivating such a love for God that you do as Jesus said: Love the Lord thy God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. (Is that a discipline you might ask?) In that process we daily seek more of the Holy Spirit to empower us to walk with God, be a modern day Godwalker! But as long as we keep trading the Presence of God for pots of beans, we will always be a vessel of dishonor in the great house of God. Do we settle for beans?

In past times people used to say, “He is a man of God.” People recognized when someone purified themselves and dedicated themselves to the pursuit of God. They set themself apart and God made them a vessel of honor, a real spiritual warrior. We don’t here that phrase much anymore, but the Bible plainly says Enoch walked with God, and I have been inspired with the thought of being a Godwalker for many years. I share this thought whenever I can, and this is where spiritual disciplines have to begin! Not with a list and an emphasis on will-power, but a person in love with the Presence of God! So much so that he becomes the warrior! He is Samurai for Christ! He loves God with all his heart, soul, mind , and strength, even as Jesus said!

I could give you this one spiritual discipline; to stop spending your life pursuing beans but pursue Holy Spirit, and God’s will will be added to you! Wealth? A mansion? Maybe, or maybe not, but it would no longer matter! It only matters to us when we love the things of this underworld more than God and the kingdom above!

In Psalms 91 we see great supernatural power. I have memorized that chapter and have been praying it for many years now. As we face this COVID curse my spiritual garden is full of the seeds of Psalms 91. Prayer is a discipline. Sowing seeds is a discipline. However!!! That chapter sums itself up at the end when it says…

Because he has set his love upon me (God, Jesus, Holy Spirit), therefore I will deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He shall call upon me and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.”

Do you see the “because” and the “therefore” at the beginning of all those incredible promises? Study them closely. Understand what it all means. It’s not about a list. It’s about becoming a Godwalker. It’s about being an Enoch and not an Esau. It’s about being Mary more than Martha.

We will continue in our teaching of spiritual disciplines. I’m asking God to help me teach it in the proper way. God looks at the heart. How would God teach spiritual discipline? Where would God start? I think he would start in the book of Song of Solomon. I think he would tell us if we gave our body to be burned at a stake, but did not “love”, it would all be for nothing. It would be hollow, shallow, and cheap.

Most of us need to cast away the selfishness of our beans and work on our love. And for that we need a lot of prayer and the Holy Spirit. But do we love that much? It is our choice. We choose beans or God every single day. Will we neglect the one who gives us each day for another pot of beans? Will we be a cheap sword from China?

Do we love God and others enough to pursue him with our whole heart and become more than a citizen of heaven, but also the warrior? Warriors are not looking for a comfort zone. When the people went into the desert to hear John the Baptist, they did not find a man wearing soft clothing and living in a mansion.

A Prayer – “Light be!”

Father… as our election draws closer every day we need TRUTH. So many lies flying around. I pray that those with lying tongues be exposed! Let there be light! I pray America RETURN to her godly roots and her biblical foundations and embrace them again, for they are the favor of God! I pray the wickedness of Hollywood and other platforms who daily attack your Word and your Presence, I pray they fall in their own pits! The snares they set for others would become the very snares they are trapped in! Let them fall in and be exposed! Light be! Let America seek Jesus again. Let the liars be cursed in their ways. Let their own words and evil prayers come back upon them!

I pray that your Church, Lord; your body in this country become prayer warriors again, casting off the cares of this life and walking in the Priesthood you have ordained. I pray the Church stop selling her birthright for beans! I pray her eyes would see INFINITY more than finite! I pray her mind be renewed by the INFINITE, casting away her pots of beans! Perhaps this time the ship can be lightened, the pots of beans thrown overboard into the raging sea, and Jonah be saved! But if not, if this great ship cannot be turned from Tarshish, then throw us into the sea, Lord. It is what we need.

I’m asking a lot, Lord. Your Church has so corrupted herself in worldliness. Can anything besides the belly of a whale redirect her? I do not know, Lord. But this is my prayer. I ask all these things in your name, Lord. I ask our Father, in the name of Jesus, LIGHT BE! Let TRUTH come forth with such weight and heaviness, that it sets upon the lies, and when TRUTH sets herself upon those lies, they cannot bear the weight of it, and they are crushed! I pray people be set free again in the liberty of truth, for surely right now, we are not. In Jesus name, Amen.

(If this prayer echoes in your own heart and soul, please join me in praying this as much as possible between now and the election, and even after if need be. We are at such a critical fork in the road in this country. The path we take will be our future, whatever that path holds, whether good or bad. Anyone claiming the name of Christ today, who is not aware of this ultimate fork in the road, surely must be sound asleep. We need to wake each other up and get back to being the Priest God has called us to be. There is a huge gap we are meant to be standing in, but are we? Are we functioning as Priest, or Gentiles? I truly believe this perfect storm we are in is more about God’s Church in America, than America itself. Just as it was with Jonah in that day. The Church is called to be the “Champions of TRUTH”, but where are the champions of our day? Let them rise up! Then perhaps this storm can pass away.)

Skykingdom #2 / Winged Life

Pure Wisdom

Welcome to another episode of Skykingdom. Who are those drawn to a life above it all? Who are those drawn to a life of wing and not lustful flesh? Except the Father draw us to these things, unless the Lord builds the house we labor in vain. As we seek more Holy Spirit, the Father draws us more to Himself. Please read Skykingdom #1 if you hope to truly understand this series we have begun.

Even as the parable of the Ten Virgins, a teaching Jesus gave about when he comes back! A teaching about the Rapture, when Jesus comes back not for all Christians, but for his Bride! It is she who lives a winged life! It is she who can soar away with Him because she has gained her wings! Those who live grounded in the earth shall be left behind! They will remain grounded in the dirt! Learn this winged life now, while Holy Spirit is here to teach and empower us!

“Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept.” (Matt. 25: 2-5)

“And while they were going to buy (oil), the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut.” (Matt. 25: 10)

The problem here is a failure to wake up and follow Jesus. I find many Christians asleep in their cozy earthly bed and they do not want to be bothered with a winged life of rising above. Spiritual disciplines are too much for them. And I understand that lazy and foolish spirit of death. How often have I heard if you want to live well in your old age, you got to keep moving!

My body lies to me every morning! That bed feels so good! My body says, “I’m still tired. I can’t move. This feels so good. You can’t wake up. You will be a zombie.” But you know what? About 10-15 minutes after forcing myself to get up, I find those were all lies! And now I feel good! And I’m so glad I got out of bed because I want to live my life! I can’t live the life I want to live if I’m asleep!

Our spirit man is the same way. It tells us we’re too tired. I can’t move. I can’t pray and offer up my spiritual practices unto God. I can’t follow Jesus where he is calling me. I’m a zombie. But guess what? If you force yourself to wake up, get out of that spiritual bed, begin mounting up with the wings as the eagle as we taught in Skykingdom #1, and tap into a life that flows, and life that soars more and flaps less, you will come alive and be so glad you did! A supernatural walk will be yours! A winged life will be your new norm!

Keeping it short today, in hopes you will read #1. In the rapture, God’s faithful people will take wing and the unfaithful will remain grounded. Is it possible those who are taken are the ones who were already living a winged life in Christ? Let us be ready. WAKE UP!

Cast off your cozy covers of spiritual laziness and that evil spirit of death and get moving! Stretch those wings! Spread your wings and soar! Show someone the life of Jesus today! It only happens when God’s anointing empowers us, and that, my friend, is a winged life. It’s the life God has called us to on the other side of IMPOSSIBLE.

Wisdom dictates…?

Skykingdom / Skypeople #1

Spirit / Wings

Perhaps my take on things is not your cup of tea, but Jesus inspires me, and a life of living by my wings, in the Spirit, and not as a Dirtdweller, inspires me, too. So I choose to write in such terms. Hope you enjoy.

For those who truly follow Christ, Jesus leads us to the other side of the IMPOSSIBLE. Eternal life? Impossible! Or is it? Jesus says, “Follow me.”

Moses led the people to God’s Promised Land. However, God had to part the waters twice before they would actually live in that land. In other words, God’s Promised Land was on the other side of the IMPOSSIBLE!

So how does one live on a cloud? What is Spirit life? How do we seek a Skykingdom? It is the same way Jesus walked on the water! And the same way Peter walked on the water! He was walking on water as long as he kept his eyes on Jesus, but when he looked at the circumstances around him, he immediately began losing the supernatural walk he was living and began sinking rapidly back into the natural. It was quickly swallowing him up!

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on things that are on earth (dirt). For you have died…” Colossians 3: 1-3a

That last part might be a bit disturbing, but you see, things are not the same in Skykingdom as it is with the dwellers of the land. Would you expect it to be? Living by wing and not flesh is a whole different set of paradigms, and it all starts with waiting upon the Lord. So…if you’re too busy? You’re probably not living a life of wing. Your earthbound.

Consider this, God’s word says they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength and mount up with wings as eagles. This is Isaiah 40: 31a, and this verse speaks of a very supernatural lifestyle ABOVE. God makes no apologies for inviting us to a life ABOVE. God’s word and the teachings of Christ are full of instructions concerning this invisible world our eyes cannot see. Paul even told us not to look at what is seen, but that which is not seen!

I thought I would start this series where I start all my teachings on this subject, here at God’s Bird House. Isaiah 40:31. You see, that eagle is a picture for us, and that picture has a lot to teach about the ways of God, his kingdom, and how his people are supposed to live. We are called to a Priesthood. Let me add one more set of scriptures to this.

This is God speaking to Moses after he delivered them out of the bondage of slavery to Egypt. And remember, in scripture, Egypt is symbolic of the world, earthly, materialistic, the flesh, Dirtdwellers, earth lovers, etc. God is telling Moses what he wants Moses to tell his people, and every minister of God should speak this same message!

“Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the people of Israel: You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples, for all the earth is mine; and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the people of Israel.” (Exodus 19: 3b-6)

Followers of Christ, our Lord leads us to the other side of IMPOSSIBLE. We are called to be Skypeople, a life of wing/ Spirit. We are called to live above it all as God’s priests in the earth, in the world, but not of the world, even as Jesus prayed.

There is so much more for me to say on this, and so many more scriptures, but let me quickly give you this one illustration. This is easier done in person as a physical demonstration, but try to picture in your mind as I describe. Our scripture, Isaiah 40:31…the eagles’ wings. How does an eagle mount up? It is a picture of Praise, Prayer, and Promises, the 3 P’s of Priesthood in Christ!

Try this > Stand to your feet…bring your hands in front of your chest as in a position of prayer…start praying…now exaggerate the motion as you swing your hands and arms outward and upward into the position of worship and praise…say a word of praise…now swing back down into the hands at your chest in position of prayer as before…pray…and then up again…do you see the flapping of the wings of the eagle as you pray and worship? You are mounting up into a realm of faith and Spirit! Your spirit man wants to go there! Now add to that faith all the promises of God. After you swing your arms upward in praise, now extend them outward…like a mighty eagle SOARING! Think of God’s word to you, his promises…and his personal words to you… his assignment to you! SOAR upon the promises of Psalms 91 and others! SOAR upon Isaiah 40:31! Do you see the motion of the eagles’ wings? Do you see this awesome picture God has given us? Now live it! Live as Skypeople and not the Earthdwellers scratching in the dirt! Live your Priesthood in Christ. It is your Birthright! And yes, it is a life on the other side of IMPOSSIBLE. Have you the faith for it? Do you love Jesus enough to live where he calls you, and leave these earthly things behind?

Set your AFFECTIONS on things above. We are in the world, but not of it. I drive an earthly man-made car, but that car does not own me, and I do not worship it. I can have material things, but material things must not have me! Or I am once again a slave to Egypt.

Jesus taught so many things pertaining to living above it all. We have only begun to open this door. I hope you want more. Find the time to wait on the Lord and live as Skypeople.

Flap less and SOAR more!

Night Watcher #12 / the year 5781.

Once upon a time it greatly concerned me when we passed the year 2000 on our calendar, and Jesus did not return.

I had been taught it was 4000 years prior to Jesus birth, and then another 2000 years after we would leave the 6th day (6000 years) and enter the 7th. At which point Jesus should return! The day of REST! 1000 year Millennial Reign! So when nothing happened I was confused! I knew Jesus would never be late! So man is wrong “again” in some way, and what is it?

You can imagine how confused at first, and then excited when I learned of the Jewish calendar. It made perfect sense! Of course God would run on that time table! But how the heck did we get so far off? And why had not my modern church taught me this? Once again it seemed the “old ways” not the new, had the answers, and they were there all the time!

Well…I still don’t understand all that but I am greatly relieved God is not late! As a matter of fact, I believe he will show up early! I believe God’s perfect will for man was a perfect 6000 years, but man’s darkness would destroy him before then, man is not going to be able to last 6000 years! When Jesus said the time “would be shortened”, I believe he was speaking of that 6th day and the over-all 6000 years.

Jesus said, “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.” (Matt. 24:21-22 ESV)

The Jewish calendar says we are in the years 5781. WOW! That’s a lot of years left before 6000! In my own mind, I can’t even imagine us lasting that long. Not knowing the self-destructing nature of lost man and the power we have to destroy this planet several times over!

So… God’s original people say it is 5781. Various prophetic people have already begun putting out opinions as to what those numbers (5781) mean as far as biblical values set by the Hebrew language, and it is all very interesting.

We Know we are in a time like none other. We can sense this as we look around at a perfect storm waiting to explode upon this planet. These people have already said they want a New World Order. I believe this new order will be set by a female goddess rising upon a mythical throne no female has held before. Even in the mythical world it has always been a male god on the over-all throne. And though these mythical gods are “fiction”, never forget the demons behind them are not! Mother Earth, Gaea/ Gaia, or Kali, (the dark mother), or whatever female goddess it may be, there are very real demonic forces behind those false gods and idols!

Also, even the church has fallen pray to the female gods in many ways. The word “Easter” is actually a form of a name given to a female goddess. The early church did not call it Easter, but Passover. And Satan went to Eve, not Adam, in the greatest victory he ever had. A female goddess would set the stage perfectly for his last great move of the antichrist.

But as the Jewish New Year was changing just a few days ago, and I was watching the Day of Prayer and Repentance in DC, I was fasting and joining in all of the actions of that day, I even had my own Shofar I was sounding. And as I stared out a large window beside me I saw a breeze stirring. The sky looked like rain but there was no rain. No rain was predicted and none came all day. However, what caught my eye beyond this was leaves falling and sailing through the sky, carried by that wind, and falling to the ground. And the trees were still 95% green! Where were these leaves coming from, and why now?

So, no rain, but a wind stirring and leaves falling? I began questioning God as I always do. What came to me, and only time will bear this out, but I felt I heard the voice of God saying… People in high places, positions of power and influence, in the world, and government, and also THE CHURCH! The leaves you see falling from the sky to the ground, are either the scales falling from these people’s eyes so they finally “SEE”, see TRUTH, Or…the person themself shall fall! And then I was reminded of RBG passing away at the very start of the Jewish Ten Days of Awe, as if in confirmation of what I was hearing.

God has been very patient with this country, and the church in this country. There is a new wine skin. new wine, and new anointing stirring. They are saying 5781 is a year to be… Strong in the Lord, alert with eagle eyes, separated in priesthood, and taking ACTION! Both a plow and sword are spoken of. The sword comes out of our mouth, and the plow is the work of our hands and don’t look back! We are in a time of great action and acts again! Do not be muzzled! It is a strange thing we are all wearing covers over our mouths at this very time, but it is only symbolic, we can still speak truth through those masks!

So the Jewish calendar says we still could have a lot of time, another 10 to 30 years would not be unreasonable. And if the time is shortened? Personally, I can’t see us lasting past 2060 or 2065, at the most! And probably much less.

So here we go folks. The chessboard continues moving. I haven’t heard anything on the 50 Days of White House Siege. Some people are saying that the polls showed these tactics were hurting the Democrats much more than helping. So they suddenly put a lid on it? Or maybe keep a low profile until closer to time? I am curious…and I intend to seek answers…because I am a watcher and it is what we do.

So keep a watchful eye. Is RBG just the first of people in high places to fall, or suddenly have their eyes opened? This will be most interesting to watch, but it still disturbs me that in what I saw…there was grey clouds, but no rain.

Soar more and flap less!

“Verbal Arsonist”/ Prophetic Poetry.

Liar, liar, pants on fire! Run through the streets igniting terrors!

Truth is the enemy to be destroyed! Facts mean nothing, only lies!

Shed your skin often, for surely you must! Who has peace in flesh like yours?

Who could sleep in your skin; mouth full of sin!

Give no thought to Infinity! Sell your finite dreams of numbered days!

Sell your dead end streets leading nowhere!

Sell your pot of beans while promising the world!

So lie you must if you would succeed! Never mind those who burn!

Those foolish enough to believe!

So many youth easily swayed. I am embarrassed for you. The media uses you too.

You are the used the used the used. Like little foxes with tails on fire! Aren’t you proud.

Someday when you grow up, you will see the bill of goods sold.

Like puppets on a string. Like a prostitute ring. You are the used.

WISE UP!

This country don’t need Left or Right. Would the real Jesus please stand up!

May his truth reign in this country again! May the media repent of her sins! Do they have a permit to speak such things? Verbal arsonists setting fires? Shooting lies more deadly than bullets! Destroying lives of honest people! These are the guns behind the guns we hear, their words in our ears!

Or have we all become a country of LIARS? Have we all become hypocrites needing to shed our skins? How shall we repent?

////////

This is what the book of hate says about a lying tongue…

“And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.”

Is it a book of hate; or truth and wisdom? You be the judge. Which is TRUE? Truth is a treasure beyond measure!

As I send out this poem there are many Christians traveling to the DC area for prayer and repentance for our country. I am with them in Spirit, prayer, and fasting. They were heavy on my mind as I wrote the above words. May God hear our prayers, correct his Church, and send enough waters of peace from heaven to put out the flames of a lying people. In Jesus name I also ask for protection for these ones as they pray. Please forgive us, Lord, that we have become such a worldly people. May we once again set our true affections, our true heart, on things ABOVE. May your precious Anointing fill us again. Amen.

If MY people…

Night Watcher #11 / TRUTH

It has been said lies travel 6 x’s faster than truth.

Truth is a treasure. It has been said that lies travel six times faster than truth on the Internet. The more scarce a thing becomes, the more valuable it becomes. The price and value of TRUTH is skyrocketing in our day. If it is “true”, that lies travel 6 x’s faster, then we as a people are in big trouble! Our survival rate is plummeting because lies are self-destructive!

How can we know what is true anymore? We are constantly bombarded by liars who claim to be journalist, but really just want to promote their lies as truth. How do you describe such evil? People base their decisions on what they believe to be true! But if our truth is actually a lie, then our house we work so hard to build, is built on sand! But your pain is their gain! $$$$$$$$

Lies always have an expiration date, but TRUTH does not, it is eternal. Lies are finite, TRUTH Infinite. A lie is always eventually revealed as sand slipping through your hands no matter how hard you grasp! A life built on lies has an expiration date. But a house of TRUTH is Infinite.

Unfortunately, with the speed of the Internet, by the time a lie is revealed, no one cares anymore because they are already emotionally caught up in the next lie! These people do not exercise control over their EMOTIONS to live in WISDOM, but they choose to live in the next lie. Those who chase the finite and ignore Infinity are houses built on sand, and their house will eventually sadly and tragically fail.

Ask any Astronaut, lies won’t get you to the moon! Only TRUTH will! Liars are on a one way trip. They will not return. If an Astronaut’s theory, science, and plan is based on lies, that ship will fail! It’s a one way trip! A house built on lies! Lies that will one day expire!

Ask an Astronaut if TRUTH is TREASURE, and what value should be put on it as they are shooting through the sky, breaking gravity and feeling the power of all those G- forces on their body. You may not be trying to reach the moon, but what are you hoping for in life? Perhaps to simply be happy? I love that one, and only TRUTH will get you there to stay. I seek a Skykingdom and a Skypeople. We love our wings (Spirit), and TRUTH.

If you want to end up very disappointed in life, chase lies. Embrace lies and spread the lies to everyone around you. Now you become the liar too, and when the harvest from all those lies begins coming in? When your friends remember the lies you spread that sabotaged their house, then you will know the hollowness I speak of.

But if you desire meaning, purpose, and fulfillment? Find TRUTH. It is a great treasure. It will guide your life well and get you successfully to the moon. It will establish your house like a ROCK!

Who are these people promoting lies as truth, and do not care to check the facts? Who are these people who promote only “part” of the story, but not the whole? Who are these evil verbal arsonist going around setting fire to America? Who are these ones who accept lies as truth and without any double-checking of facts, light themselves on fire with EMOTIONS and deliberately spread the lies! How should such people be described? Are they simply ignorant? Uneducated? Foolish? Evil? Self-destructive? Undisciplined? What? What words would you choose?

Is mankind self-destructive by nature? It could be said that in our love of lies we surely are. Sin is self-destructive. God says planet Earth has an expiration date and invites all his peple into a Skykingdom where we live by Spirit, and not flesh. We wrestle in self-discipline, prayer, and truth, to keep our flesh down and our spirit up! It’s all taught in God’s Skybook known as the BIBLE. Which just happens to be a book that liars hate and want to destroy! Go figure. Liars want to destroy TRUTH.

The Indians use to say that white man has forked tongue, (and most snakes do!) It would seem the Internet has become a place for money-hungry and power-hungry snakes to thrive! So many forked tongues speak today from every platform that the average person will only find there way IF they put a real priority on it. But the lazy and the emotional will continue being the “herd” these snakes so easily manipulate.

Have our cell phones become the strings attached to a herd of puppets, as the puppet masters on the other side rake in the money? Wow. So sad. Another example of Earthdwellers seeking their own pleasures at the expense of others, simply because they can. Lost man is self-destructive.

A life that soars must be based on TRUTH. Flap less, and soar more!

As a watcher it is hard observing a world of liars self-destruct. Our Kingdom Above tries to help, but the world hates us, and calls us haters. The dying reject our message, preferring to live in the finite rather than the Infinite. We are called the liars, as a world in which lies travel 6 X’s faster, slowly drowns in a flood of their own making. I write such words as these and send them forth, but who knows TRUTH anymore? Your soul does, if you listen! Stop clipping your own wings!

All are welcome in the Kingdom Above, Skykingdom; but first the lying tongue must go. A snake’s tongue cannot have eagle’s wings. Only truth sets free, only truth defies earthly gravity to live a life above, in the Spirit. Seek those things which are above, Jesus taught. TRUTH is a TREASURE. TRUTH is also a person, the Son of God, Jesus. But will you believe me?

They that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles! Skykingdom. Skypeople. God the Father invites all his children to a Kingdom in the sky. The Bible shows the way!

Isaiah 40:31

Excellence… Mastery…So many desire…So few achieve.

Peacefulness of soul…Life that flows…You are a Spirit walker.

When there seems to be no way…Faith is power to stay…

Spirit walker.

One with time…No stress, no strain…Precious state of mind.

What is this power? This force? This poise?

Falling…falling…falling…Only to land…Upright!

You are a Spirit walker.

Let others faint…Let others strive…You seek His voice.

Let patience have her perfect work…A path that lies upon the Wind.

A wisp of smoke…A feeble trail…The slightest strain disturbs…

Go ahead pilgrim, test your worth.

If you should fail…there is One who knows…One who cares.

He watches every step.

He too is a…

Spirit walker.

Xyli_Snowy_Owl Are we Skypeople or Earthdweller? They are two very different ways of living. One lives by their wings, the other by human reasoning. One has a focus on Infinite, the other finite. One goes on forever, the other trapped in the numbers. One walks by what he hears within, the other by what he sees without. What we hear from above, or what we see from below. Two very different ways of living. It cannot be hidden or faked for long.

Which you are always shows.

Jesus said, “Follow Me.”

Sunday again, already? Yes indeed. We were having church last night with some people and we got into our Lord’s Sermon on the Mount. What is this higher place Jesus wants to take us? We follow Him into the Infinite, and away from finite.

Somehow, as we pondered the Beatitudes, I found myself sharing the name I have chosen for this little house of ours that is currently in such disarray as we are remodeling it into a House Church. We use to call it “The Little Blue Bungalow”, but in the journey of this transformation, things have taken a distinct turn towards a theme of “Birds”! And I shared last night I have nicknamed this place, “God’s Bird House”. People actually chuckled about that.

When we found a beautiful set of French Doors at a Habitat for Humanity store, and it was actually in our price range, (cheap!), as a bird would say, but we purchased it with great delight and dismay, loaded it in our old truck, and once it was installed, our room suddenly opened up into our small, private, backyard area. And when it did, we got inspired to create a bird sanctuary. It has been a delight. It is still in progress also, and has become the theme of this house.

This should be no surprise to me. Birds and I go way back. I’ve always had a thing about them. I even wrote the story of “Flapless”, which you can access for free in the side bar. And now, I find our ministry being used to inspire God’s people to live by your wings more than your feet! Stop running, slow down, and soar!

“I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” (Gal. 5: 16 KJV)

“So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. “ (Gal. 5: 16 NLT)

We are called to live by our wings!

When you look out our French Doors you see this >

It is amazing to me what a small area can be turned into. I’ve seen Jesus turn plain old water into wine so many times! Here’s another example. Our basement on this old house leaks like a cracked tub, so we have always had a sump pump. But where was the water to go? The city has allowed our front ditch to fill in and be of little use, and we’re not on city sewer, so I dug a hole! Just a basic pit for the water from our basement to go into and evaporate or sink back into ground. It was just meant to be a holding place. Well.. it turned into a beautiful small pond!

20200823_101002The city has checked it and it is clean. The water has filtered through the ground and that is all it is. Our basement pumps it into my hole and it became part of our bird sanctuary. It became an ecosystem of its own and the birds love it! But why am I sharing all this? People of God, we’re meant to live “higher”. And some of you immediately think dollar signs $ when I say that, and you reveal your lack of Spirit!

Remember where this message started? We we’re looking at the Sermon on the Mount, and the Beatitudes. Would the real Jesus please stand up! Because I don’t see many modern churches teaching what Jesus really said and did.  Everyone says they love the Beatitudes, but I don’t see many people living them, which tells me they speak with forked tongue, like a snake, not a bird.

Birds are used so often in scripture in describing the Christian life, the life of following Jesus, like a bird on the wing, riding the wind. Of course we all think of Isaiah 40:31… They that wait upon the Lord… and the eagle.

Birds are called to live in the high places. They are the skypeople, and so are we, unless we’re not. Why live as the ground dwellers when you can live by a different set of laws superseding the natural. We are called to soar!

We are in a season of great turmoil and who is to say how long this may be, or where it is going, but are you skypeople or ground dweller? You’re going to need your wings! In our Lord’s Sermon he challenges us with these words… “Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?” (Matt. 6:26) And I’m one of those people who love feeding them.

We love the Sermon on the Mount, the real Jesus, don’t we? But does this describe our life? So much fear today. So little real faith and peacefulness of soul. So much anger and politics.  So much “want” of money and material things. This message actually “begins” with our Lord declaring blessed are the poor! Less is more? Wow. Is it any wonder as we opened these words last night, I found myself sharing the theme and nickname of our little home… “God’s Bird House”? And the transformation slowly continues.

I wanted to share something a bit more inspiring and light of heart today in the midst of all this doom and gloom. Never forget our Kingdom is above! And we but passing through this place. Do we care about the ground dwellers? Yes we do, but we can only do so much. Just like Jesus, we teach the truth of the finite verses Infinite, but we can force no one to believe, receive, and be transformed.

In the end, I watch the turmoil of earthly people who live in flesh rather than Spirit, and I praise God again, over and over, for my wings. I catch the Wind and know peace. I invite others to believe. My wings were freely given and I seek to freely give. But true skypeople are still the minority in this post Christian nation.

Do not follow Esau. Do not trade your birthright for a pot of dirt. Do not live earth bound by fear and lack of peace when you are birthed to soar! Be of good cheer, little bird! Your heavenly father knows what you have need of! Peace be unto you.

This is my chair and my spot right by the French Doors looking out on the pond, the feeders, our 2 hummingbirds (such a delight), and other birds and small critters, as I pray, ponder, listen, and write.
