 ‘Gossip is the most deadly microbe. It has neither legs nor wings. It is composed entirely of tales, and most of them have stings.’

Morris Mandel in Bits & Pieces, June, 1990, p. 22

 gossip slither

Recently, we went through a wonderful trial, that occurred when another person accused us of some financial mismanagement, that was totally untrue. Gossip is like a serpents venom, it poisons people against you, and may take years to rebuild trust in relationships.

Just because ‘Everyone is saying it’, does not make it true!

The Bible says we are kings and priest unto God, and we must conduct ourselves as royalty!

Proverbs 16:10

A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.

As leaders we hear a lot of stories, and we need to judge not only actions, but motives. Had a situation last year, where we wanted to donate to a certain ministry, and one of the businesses needed to know exactly where the building materials donated were going. So, I sent him an email with the ministers name and location of the construction project we were planning, because he grew up in that state, and knew the area. Seems another person who ‘wanted to get involved’ asked for the material list I sent my former client, so I sent it to them. They got involved alright, instead of helping, they accused me of ‘taking up offerings in the name of the other ministry’, and then spread the ‘rumor’ of this to many, many other ministries. I could not believe they had done this, so I attempted to meet with them, to discuss it, but they have not returned telephone calls nor emails since then.

As far as I’m concerned, I have forgiven them, and am aggressively using my faith to believe the best of them, and for them, declaring these two verses over their lives:

Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Philippians 2:13

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Faith works by love, and so I am using my faith on purpose for their growth and instruction in the things of God.

faith works by love

Check the facts before you judge leader, it is for your glory and promotion.

Proverbs 25:2

It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

glory conceal

In the midst of my particular trial, I had a good friend of mine, who is studying to be a rabbi, who lives in Jerusalem, call me. I told him what I was going through, and he said, “Interesting. Chris, did you know that here, in Israel, we take character assassination of more consequence than even murder? He then reminded me of a story I had heard before, he had heard in synagogue:

If you don’t say it, they can’t repeat it. Yiddish folklore offers a telling tale about gossip-makers. One such man had told so many malicious untruths about the local rabbi that, overcome by remorse, he begged the rabbi to forgive him. “And, Rabbi, tell me how I can make amends.” The rabbi sighed, “Take two pillows, go to the public square and there cut the pillows open. Wave them in the air. Then come back.” The rumormonger quickly went home, got two pillows and a knife, hastened to the square, cut the pillows open, waved them in the air and hastened back to the rabbi’s chambers. “I did just what you said, Rabbi!” “Good.” The rabbi smiled. “Now, to realize how much harm is done by gossip, go back to the square…” “And?” “And collect all your feathers.”

From Hooray for Yiddish.

gossip feathers

Looks like the work of this person has blown feathers all over America. Gotta believe the blood of Jesus can wash away their mess…I need to believe what I preach!

think1

Here are a couple of thoughts, before speaking and decision making:

I once formed a mutual encouragement fellowship at a time of stress in one of my pastorates. The members subscribed to a simple formula applied before speaking of any person or subject that was perhaps controversial.

T–Is it true? H–Is it helpful? I–Is it inspiring? N–Is it necessary? K–Is it kind?

If what I am about to say does not pass those tests, I will keep my mouth shut! And it worked!

Alan Redpath, A Passion for Preaching.

God loves You

God is love, and He will work it all out, as only He can.

Let’s pray:

‘Father, I come before you, determined to walk free from offense, and in Your love. Give me grace to see correctly into situations, and before I judge, to investigate to see what is being done, and why. May I victoriously obey you, and press forward towards the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus, Amen.’

Four Secrets of a Forever Marriage – Book Launch!

Four secrets book

Friends of mine, Karen and Kevin Hardin are involved in the launch of this book. Though I have not yet read it, I have known the Hardin’s for many years, and have seen the excellence they walk in.

Order a copy of “Four Secrets to a Forever Marriage” on Amazon, July 21. Then email us your Amazon order # at michael@forevermarriage.info to win one of five free sterling silver Unity Cross necklaces we are giving away TOMORROW ONLY! (retail value $130/ea)

FOUR SECRETS TO A FOREVER MARRIAGE – PRESS RELEASE:

TULSA, OK— In his early thirties, business entrepreneur, Michael Letney, had just closed the deal on a contract with one of the largest retailers in the world. He smiled as he walked out of their corporate offices little knowing that as he put his signature on the dotted line, he had just set into motion a roller coaster that would cost him his business, his financial stability and could have cost him his marriage.

The lessons learned during that season until now, from this “not-so-perfect” husband, restored the trust that had been broken with his wife and ultimately restored his marriage. They are lessons which are foundational to every successful marriage. In reality, they are four secrets that will transform any relationship.

Can it really be that simple? Yes!

Did you know that each year approximately 2.3 million couples will marry in America alone? That equals 6,200 weddings a day. These couples will spend over $72 billion collectively just to make sure that their special day is perfect.

But what is the “budget” couples create in regards to time, money and effort needed to ensure that the “after party of marriage” is as successful as the wedding day itself?

If couples will choose to make these four important principles an ongoing part of their relationship, they can transform their relationship to one in which their house truly becomes a home and where the two become one. The reward of such a marriage is happiness, wholeness and unity.

So what does it take? Transparency, truth and trust which in turn creates the reward of unity. Like four layers of a wedding cake, each build on the foundation of the other. Without one, you cannot achieve the other. They are all essential ingredients to achieve true unity and happiness for a forever marriage.

Many young people today say that “happily ever after” doesn’t exist. We agree. Fairy tales aren’t real, but a forever marriage can be, for those willing to apply the practical steps and inspiring message found in “Four Secrets to A Forever Marriage” where you can happily live a “forever after.”

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE BOOK:

Being a pastor in university communities for over 34 years, I have performed numerous wedding ceremonies as well as engaged in numerous premarital counseling situations.

The books I assigned for counseling were and are good. But I wish that this book had been written. It brings more than just marriage insights, but reveals those insights through the grid of mistakes, pain, humiliation, and loss. “Four Secrets to a Forever Marriage” is a book that grabs your attention because it reveals not just the surface issues of loss, but the sobering “heart” issues that are foundational for every marriage and family.

I will be using this book as part of the premarital counseling the as well as a valued tool in helping husbands and wives build and rebuild their “Forever Marriage.” Michael and Barbie’s story will inspire and uplift you. I will be recommending this book to my friends and giving it as a gift to young couples.

 

Dr. Jim Burkett

President, Foundation Ministries International

 

This book is great… from a marriage perspective, business perspective and I can even see how it can benefit our nation as you talk about

the strength and importance of the marriage foundation.

All I can say is I am honored and excited to be able to help you promote this and highly recommend it.

Some years ago, when I was running hard keeping our construction company going, we filmed these testimonies of business owners, who have trusted Jesus to build successful companies.

From what I understand, these were translated into Urdu, and aired in Pakistan.

We have not copy-written them. Feel free to use them however you see fit, for the glory of God.

Give in faith!

1 Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among you, [is it too] much if we reap from your material benefits?

1 Corinthians 9:14 [On the same principle] the Lord directed that those who publish the good news (the Gospel) should live (get their maintenance) by the Gospel.

Paul goes on to say, that he did not use his position as a minister of the gospel to take up offerings, rather he worked, making tents, to support himself. You might notice here, that Paul was not married, nor did he have children. Family responsibilities take time, and just as you bust a move on your job to provide for your family, I work every bit as hard, doing this, faithful to the Lord in prayer and the ministry of His Word, to you.

I will never charge for this: it my responsibility to God, my calling. Freely I have been given, now, I freely give…

As you give, hear Holy Spirit what to give, and honestly expect God to reward you for your giving.

Matt 10: 41 He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.

I am a five-fold ministry gift and office – this is my life – I pray, I hear, I write, and wonderful things happen. You have your job description, I have mine – this is mine….

I have ‘see through’ faith for you, in this: Gal 3: 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

I believe I have a responsibility before God to be like Jesus, in every offering I receive. I receive it with thanksgiving, just like Jesus did the little boys lunch.

Then, because I walk and live by faith according to the blessing of Abraham, I believe that God will take your seed sown, and multiply it, according to what the blessing of Abraham promises:

Genesis 22:17 In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore. And your Seed (Heir) will possess the gate of His enemies

It has been a joy to me, to see the hand of the living God act in the lives of those of you who have supported us this year!

Many have seen tremendous blessing come into your households, and for this we give thanks, and give Jesus all the glory!

The Chattanooga Event Is a CIA/ISIS False Flag Operation

Last year, I announced that I had learned ISIS was moving soldiers across the New Mexico border as I spoke with native leaders there. No one believed me…This can still be turned in prayer…PRAY!

By now most Americans, in one way or another, have heard of the tragic event in Chattanooga, TN., in which Muhammad Youssuf Abdulazeez attacked two separate military facilities which resulted in the death of four American servicemen. The local papers in Chattanooga have portrayed the assassin as a normal member of a normal family who was a productive member of the community. Already, the mainstream media is spinning this event as a deranged gunman gone crazy and when the smoke clears, President Obama will renew his cries for removing guns from the hands of American citizens.

A Clear View at The Top
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Every Christian threads through a different season in valleys and we all have our mountain top moments to show for them. What is important about getting from point A to point B, is that God uses every bit of that journey for our good. All those that came across our path through the valleys whether they helped or brought persecution against us, God used them to strengthen us. When we reached the side of the mountain and begin to climb to the top, each struggle brought us closer to God as we realized our weakness. We had to be on alert at all times from falling rocks and very loose steps by each…

Scriptural Prayers Part of our Daily Prayer List

Scriptural prayers – 2015

eph

Over the years, I have learned that the best way to pray (other than in tongues, in the Holy Spirit), is by taking these Holy Spirit inspired prayers from the Bible, and personalizing them. Initially, I simply prayed them for myself and my family, but now, as I name many, many people, places and ministries before the throne of God each day, I am praying them for many, many others. Today, as I pray these, I am praying, and sharing them with you…

Eph 1:16  Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

17  That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

18  The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us–ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

20  Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

21  Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Eph 3Eph 3: 14 ¶  For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

15  Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

16  That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

17  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

18  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

19  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

20  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

21  Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
walk worthy

Col 1:9 ¶  For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10  That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11  Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

12 ¶  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Love Loud Today!

Make Good Decisions!

Phil 1: 9 ¶  And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;

10  That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;

11  Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Phil 1-9

Josh 1: 7  Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

8  This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

9  Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

We are redeemed from the curse, and partaker of the blessing. As we obey Holy Spirit, these blessings are ours…

11  And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

12  The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

13  And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

14  And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

2  For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

3  Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

4  So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

5  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Ps 18:35  Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

2  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Ps 67: 5  Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

Ge 15:1  I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

3  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8  Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 ¶  Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10  There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12  They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13  Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14  Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

4  Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

5  Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6 ¶  The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

psalm 12

Ps 112:1 ¶  Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

2  His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

3  Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

4  Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

5  A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

6 ¶  Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

7  He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.

8  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

9  He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

10  The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

Ps 115:14  The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

Ps 121:4  Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

Ps 122:6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Is 54: 1 ¶  Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.

2  Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;

3  For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

4  Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.

5  For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

6 ¶  For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.

7  For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

8  In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.

9  For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

10  For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

11 ¶  O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.

12  And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.

13  And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

14  In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

15  Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.

16  Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

Mark 10:29  And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,

30  But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

Father, keep me pure in heart and motive. Grant me the strength of Samson, and the courage of Paul, David, and his mighty men. That I may ever live victoriously for you.

I believe I receive the supernatural strength of All-Mighty God into every fibre of my spirit, soul, and body. I am strong in you Lord, and the power of your might.

I loose doors of utterance in the earth, a good word in season, open doors to proclaim the oracles of God, in Your name Lord Jesus.

I declare our redemption from sin, sickness, poverty, and believe I receive wisdom to walk in the fullness of this.

I ask you for revelation, wisdom, gentleness, and utterance to minister to my family, in every area, That I conduct myself in such a way, that their hearts are open to receive from me. I enforce healing and prosperity in this house.

I believe I receive utterance in the Holy Spirit, and fresh anointing and courage to ever speak your Word with boldness and confidence today.

Precious Holy Spirit, use me today in your gifts today. I ask for them, and make myself available to you, for your use, however you see fit. Release mighty acts of power in the earth today, anointing to trouble every trouble, in Your name Lord Jesus!

You have promised good works. May I recognize and walk in these today.

Whose voice are you listening to?

1 Corinthians 14:10

There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.

voices2
Voices, voices, voices all vying for our attention.
The incessant babble and conversations of people, buying, selling, sharing, teaching, asking for you to listen…and obey.
Its all about who is in charge, power and control, for is it not written?
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Then there can come the voice of angels, messengers of God from heaven into the earth, yet there is One that promises to speak, One that is gentle, kind, loving, and the only one that must be obeyed.
voice
 In the clamor of conflicting counsels, comes His promise:
John 10:27 (King James) 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
obey hear voice
 Day by day, month by month, there comes His unfolding plan for our lives, as  deeply, simply, we seek Him daily, carefully tuning the antenna of our hearts unto His frequency, His still small voice.
Yet, leadership responsibility can lead to complacency, and former passionate pursuit can become apathy.
Hearts on fire, become dull, burning embers.
fire soul
 Crystal clear reception becomes initially static, then, if we are not very careful, tuned to another station, and another voice is heard.
frequency
 This is what happened to king David, mighty ruler of Israel, the man after God’s own heart.

 Read with me 1 Chronicles 21 as David Takes a Census….

21 Satan rose up against Israel and caused David to take a census of the people of Israel. So David said to Joab and the commanders of the army, “Take a census of all the people of Israel—from Beersheba in the south to Dan in the north—and bring me a report so I may know how many there are.”

But Joab replied, “May the Lord increase the number of his people a hundred times over! But why, my lord the king, do you want to do this? Are they not all your servants? Why must you cause Israel to sin?”

So we see, David listening to another voice…

Obeying that voice brought great destruction to Israel…

Much can be said, and I have written much along these lines, but today, I’m asking, if you will, for the privilege of praying with you, for your heart, to hear Him, accurately…

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, there have been seasons of great, passionate pursuit of Your will and calling upon my life, but today, I would ask that again You might speak to me again, clearly, accurately. Deliver me from the will of devils and people who fight to thwart Your will for my life, may my heart again burn with passion for You and Your Kingdom. I ask this, knowing I am heard and answered, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus. Amen’

Thoughts for deeper study:

2 Samuel 24 (AKJV)

24 And again the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah.

Ex 30:11 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 12 When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto the Lord, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them. 

What do you think about these verses?
