Timing…

Again, I find myself awake in the night…

night speak
Ps 17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

Great passage of encouragement for those of us recognizing the call of God upon our lives.

Recognizing that certain things will only occur in His timing, no matter how much we long for it, our commission will come only at the sentence issued from His lips. In the meantime, we call forth those things that be not, as though they were, believing we receive the things we have been shown, walking it out by faith, recognizing that in the journey, the struggle, He is protecting, delivering us, and refining us, and qualifying us for His commission and the responsibility of it.

He is determined to make us into the character and likeness of Jesus in this generation:

Rom 8:29 ¶ For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestine to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Purity of heart and holiness are His aim, people may see our outward actions and consequences, but God views not only our what’s, but our why’s:

Heart is used in Scripture as the most comprehensive term for the authentic person. It is the part of our being where we desire, deliberate, and decide. It has been described as “the place of conscious and decisive spiritual activity,” “the comprehensive term for a person as a whole; his feelings, desires, passions, thought, understanding and will,” and “the center of a person. The place to which God turns.”
J. Stowell, Fan The Flame, Moody, 1986, p. 13

Let us rest tonight, in the faith of the psalmist: 15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

He can change us in the night…He still speaks..

Let’s pray:
‘Father, I thank you for the call you have placed upon my life, to bring your change and grace to the earth, in this, my generation. Keep forming the character of Jesus in me, I will not fight you in it. May my faith remain unfeigned, unleashed, and undefeated, as your unconquerable kingdom comes to me, and through me in the earth, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

Format:

We encourage people to read through the Bible each year using whatever yearly Bible reading plan works for them. I use the OneYearBibleOnline, Victory has a good one, YouVersion has one. I encourage people to pick one, and read it.

Couple of years back we all read: http://waterbrookmultnomah.com/pdf/Sample_RichestManWhoEverLived.pdf

Great book by Steven K Scott. Great resource. He encourages people to meet and read a chapter of proverbs each day, and discuss it.

Proverbs – Whatever date we meet, we will read the chapter of proverbs from that date.

Discussion: Depending on how many people come, we will either simply go around the table and let everyone share, or if many come, we will break into small groups of 5-6 people, so everyone gets a chance to share.

We will begin promptly at 7:30AM and dismiss at 8:30Am.

If people want to stay, they are free to do so, but many of us gotta get to work.

Finances:

Jesus is to be Lord of this meeting, although I will do what I can to lead it. (Kinda like herding cats).

What this means, is simple: If we decide to do a project together, and we take up an offering together for it, I will provide tax receipts for donors, and make myself accountable for the handling of any money raised, and how it is spent. (full disclosure). If we do some kind of mega-project (which I suspect will probably happen, we serve a big God), we will probably register some sort of entity, form a board etc.

However, since Jesus is Lord of this thing, and I am not, I encourage people going on missions trips, or doing neat things for the kingdom of God to make their needs known. It does not hurt my feelings one bit to help a person get where they need to go in God, and count it an honor to serve them as they go. There is no ‘big I’ and little you in the kingdom of God. We are all loved equally by a holy God.  If someone at our table is doing something for the kingdom of God, give money to them, not to me.

Suggestion: We keep a basic slush fund going to buy anyone that might need it coffee that morning, breakfast, or a tank of gas to get to work. It can be a long wait between checks when you are self-employed.

Grief – a process…

Isaiah 53:4

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted

 Grief-Changes-Us-Inspirational-Life-Quotes

Today, as I read Warfare by Honor, by Qaumaniq and Suuqiina, I read the chapter on ‘Grief as Honor’.

http://www.amazon.com/Warfare-By-Honor-Restoration-Protocol/dp/096737913X

I encourage you to read the book. In this chapter, they speak about the ‘wiping away of tears’ ceremony practiced by many native tribes. In this ceremony, people are encouraged to speak of the good memories they hold of the deceased, and to pray for the family.

Some have taken this practice to an IMO, (In Memory Of) that sends out an inquiry to all the friends and family of the deceased, to encourage each of them to bring forward good memories of the lost loved one, often monthly, until there is closure from the grieving process.

Isaiah 53:4

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted

There is a time to weep with those who are weeping, to gently walk with them through the valley of the shadow of death.
griefWe must believe that there is a sovereign God who really does love us, and that even this, will bring some good into the world…

grief pain born

Let’s pray:

‘Father, help us to honor those who grieve, to gently walk with them, bringing comfort, grace, and peace to them and their families, as they process the loss of their loved ones. Help us to be sensitive to You in this Lord Jesus, tenderly loving your people as You show us how. Amen’

Christians United for Ramadan – Your Thoughts?

As most of you know, I am vehemently against Islam. The atrocities and jihadists come from their firm believe in the Quran, that at best does not produce the fruits of the love of Jesus in the earth. (I am deliberately NOT quoting incendiary verses )here)

Bible Quran

Yet, I confronted a man named Julian Bond on Twitter, about his pro-Islamic stance, and learned of a group of Christians involved in promoting healthy dialogue between Christians and Muslims.

http://www.christiantoday.com/article/why.christians.are.fasting.for.ramadan/58529.htm

I think it is a great way to overcome evil with good, and to try to build bridges instead of walls, in the age old controversy between the two books.

What do you think?

The Jeep Saga – A Missionary Moment – Help Needed

The Jeep Saga –

Well, here I sit, in Yatehey, NM, believing God for my jeep to be fixed today.

Been a real adventure so far.

Two weeks ago, we planned a trip to Page, AZ to meet with national native leaders for a conference, to give copies of my new book to elders as protocol gifts, and to renew friendships as we went.

poster

Before leaving Tulsa, for the 1036 mile drive each way, I had a good friend who is mechanically minded check everything out. We had the oil change done, but there was a rattle in the motor that concerned me. Turned out the rotor bug clip was broken off inside my distributer cap, so we changed cap, rotor and wires, as I had put in platinum plugs last month for the Canada trip.

We went to his uncles muffler shop, to check out the rattle in the exhaust, and it was determined that it was the catalytic converter acting up, but he was booked up that day, and I needed to get outta town. Decided to chance it, and make the conference schedule, and GO!

I teach that faith without works is dead, and my version of this, it that you ALWAYS do what you can, with what you have, trusting God to supply and help with what you do not have. You can’t just sit there!

In hindsight, I should have waited for him to fix it next day.

To break up the drive, we had booked a night in a hotel in Amarillo, Texas, May 27th, as it was my birthday, and we celebrated with the included breakfast!

By the time we reached Amarillo, the catalytic converter was causing the engine to run hot, and making lots of noise.

A good friend had sent some money for my birthday, so Karen and I were up early, to find a Laundromat, and a muffler shop to get this thing fixed.

And so the ordeal began. Found a muffler shop recommended by a guy at the Laundromat, and they put on a new catalytic converter. Thought we were doing well, as they only charged me $180 for an aftermarket part.

By Santa Rosa, NM I was losing power, and the engine was overheating. Found a shop there, and we checked fire on each cylinder, while we had spark, there was yet no power, and engine running rough.

Did a compression test. No compression on cylinders 3,4 and 5. Ugh!

When we tried to discover why, we found that that muffler shop in Amarillo, had done a nasty. They had replaced my new platinum spark plugs, with a mismatched bunch of plugs, and one of them had broken inside a cylinder. Also looked like we had a blown head gasket between cylinders 3 and 4.

Made it to Albequerque, blowing blue smoke. Used 2 quarts of oil in only 3 hours. Stopped at a Panera, to get on WiFi, and to calm down. Engine running rough (Jay said: ‘Dad, are we driving a tractor out to the Navajo nation?’)

Prayed for a couple hours, and Karen felt impressed to call some friends to stay for the night.

Phew! Showers, coffee, and air conditioning made something brutal, bearable.

They were leaving town next day, so we had to leave, and I did not have peace to drive on to Page. I asked the Lord what to do, as we were supposed to be staying with Navajo elders that night, and I was determined not to dishonor them.

Holy Spiirt said: ‘Lewis is the elder hosting you to the Navajo nation, call him, and submit to what he asks you to do.’

So, I called him, and he counseled me to press through to Gallup, NM, and he would help me. We eventually limped into Gallup (driving 50mph in a 75), four hours later, and made it to their home here on Navajo land.

Tried to rent a car in Albequerque, but it would not accept my debit card.

So, we  found an AutoZone, and they had a couple of mechanics come over. We replaced the broken plug, put in a can of Lucas stop leak, bought a gallon of oil, and drove.

Well, the jeep was now firmly parked in Lewis driveway, and we had a number of mechanics come to try and diagnose the problem.

At that point, I only had $200 left, not enough to buy gas to get home, much less  pay repairs.

Lewis called around, and a salvage yard had a head they agreed to sell us for $150, in a ‘U-pull-it’ yard.

So, off we went, to pull this head out of a scrapped jeep.

Two days in the hot sun, we got it off. The owner only charged us $100.

Then, we tore down my motor, and discovered that despite the Youtube videos that had counseled us that this was a cracked head, we had bullet sized hole in the top of piston number 5.

motor

Time for another motor.

Called back the salvage yard, and he had another vehicle that had been rolled, that had a good motor in it, but he was selling it for $800. After discussion, he agreed to lower the price to $600, and give me $100 credit if I brought the head back.

So, 2 more days in the hot sun, pulling this motor out of this wrecked jeep. The guys there were awesome! They lifted the wrecked jeep up on their forklift so that we could work on the bottom half in the shade, and they gave us tons of counsel and loan of tools to get those brutally hard to reach ‘star’ bolts out from the top of the transmission.

IMG_20150530_141624

I have never been a mechanic, but I sure got a crash course, and the learning curve has been steep.

IMG_20150530_141647 (1)

Pulling the head outta the first wrecked jeep.

In the midst of this, $200 had come in donations, which amounted to $193 after Paypal got theirs.

So, the salvage yard owned said that if we removed all the accessories from the motor (starter, AC, water pump, intake and exhaust manifolds, fuel rail, etc) he would sell me the block and head for $400.

IMG_20150606_130548 (1)

Pulling the motor outta the second jeep

I gave him my $193 to hold the motor, then Lewis loaned me the $107 so that we could get this motor home.

So, Lewis borrowed a pick-up truck, and we got it hauled back here to the house.

Then, we took out the block and everything on my jeep, and we were done.

We knew, from the complexity of removing everything, we were not skilled enough to install the replacement motor. Too many plugs on the wiring harness, cooling system, transmission, phew!

We needed a mechanic, who we could trust.

More fervent prayer!

A friend of ours, Melvin Yashie Hill, has a brother that is a good mechanic, but his shop is in Ganado, AZ, 45 miles from here.

I now had no money to pay him, and I don’t write faith checks.

He agreed to install the new motor for $250, and he showed up here with his truck, and loaded the jeep and all the parts and towed it to Ganado, where he has been working on it for the past couple of days.

So, presently, I am penniless, in some violent faith for these repairs, and travel expenses back to Tulsa, and on to St. Louis, where I will fly to Denmark next week. I had put up a prayer request for Denmark, and perhaps God has had me fulfilling my own request, because we have PRAYED, day and night these past two weeks, over in the Holy Spirit in other tongues.

Denmark pray

What was to be a fun adventure in faith, has now been two weeks staying uninvited with some precious Navajo elders and their family here in Yatehey, NM.

Yet, God is love,and works all things together for good when we love Him.

What is really needed, is a more reliable vehicle….so, we pray for it, and deal with the hand we are dealt.

Gotta admit though, it has sure bumped up my prayer life. Day and night for the past two weeks we have prayed in other tongues, crying out to God for provision and grace to get through this particular trial.

If the Lord leads you to help us financially at this time, we surely need it.

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!

Working on Goals….

goal time

Just like God is trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, so are we. We are a spirit, have a soul, and live in a body.

Each of these areas need to come under the Lordship of Jesus, and I must admit, I have let my fitness level over the years go to the point, that I had a stroke in 2009, mostly because of violating natural law. Can’t work 80 hour weeks, live on fast food, coffee and energy drinks for a couple years, and expect good results. I’ve now lost 45 lbs, and am yearly, setting fitness goals, as well as spiritual goals.

I have noticed that strength training is all about 3 things: Brutal workouts, clean eating, good rest. Seems as a missionary, it is very difficult to control these three all at once…

My fitness goals are simple: 1. Be able to bench 315lbs, 5 times, 2. Run a 5km run under 25mins.

So, as I read:
Ecclesiastes 11 (AKJV)

11 Cast thy bread upon the waters:
for thou shalt find it after many days.

2 Give a portion to seven, and also to eight;
for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.

3 If the clouds be full of rain,
they empty themselves upon the earth:
and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north,
in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.

4 He that observeth the wind shall not sow;
and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap

You can’t wait for perfect conditions, to do what you can with what you’ve got. Pyramided up and got 315 again on bench this week – one time. Would like to be stronger, but it is better to be doing something with what I can do, than nothing, waiting for perfect conditions…

Whatever your goals are, do SOMETHING towards them, today.

do or do not

Let’s pray:

‘Father God, You created me, and You gave me today, a clean slate to write upon. Jesus, I submit to Your Lordship, and Your plan for my life, and ask You for direction, wisdom, strength, health, and clarity, to set and work on Your plan and goals for my life today. Amen’

do it

Discussing Cussing!

Discussing Cussing!

Is Cussing Wrong?

Mt 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Well, God is love, and God is holy. God loves us, and has called us to walk in honor before Him, as His children, with royal dignity and privilege. We are children of the most high God, created for His pleasure and purpose in the earth!

royal

So, as His ambassadors, we should be speaking His words, words of love, life, truth, honesty, and kingdom law.

Pr 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Yet, we live far below our rights and privileges, allowing our hearts to be filled with profanity, and whatever is inside of us, will come out.

Mt 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Mt 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Taking the Lord’s name in vain is clearly sin:

Ex 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

De 5:11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Kinda puts an end to the OMG you see all over Social Media.

It’s not cute in the courts of heaven; you need to find another way to express yourself!

Jas 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

tongue fire

Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

tame tongue

Eph 5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

Ro 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

Mt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Pr 19:1 ¶ Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

We are not to cuss, or utter unholy words!

Listen to the Psalmist’s prayer:
Ps 39: 1 ¶ «To the chief Musician, even to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.» I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.

Notice here ‘while the wicked is before me’.

It is easy refrain from cussing and profanity, while we are in church, but what about out on the job site, in our places of work?

What about when others are cussing, discussing and fussing?

Are we strong enough, do we fear God enough, do we love Jesus enough, to refrain from entering into their filth?

The first two commandments are to love God, THEN love people.

Loving God means we obey Him.

Obeying Him means watching over our words.

Thinking deliberately what heaven thinks about every word we speak, as His representatives in the earth.

Would Jesus cuss?

Never!

He is without sin, and we are called to be like Him in this:

Romans 8:29 ¶ For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Will God forgive you?

forgive them for they know not

Yes, remember Peter?

Mark 14: 70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.
71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.

Matt 26: 74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

Jesus forgave Jesus for cussing and denying Him, and Peter definitely knew better.

He will surely forgive you!

I grew up with a praying mom. Although she did not know the Word of God, she was a devout Catholic, and a moral woman. I remember when my dad was stationed in Digby, Nova Scotia, and was away at sea. I was about five years old, and my mom was raising the three of us. I had gone out the play structure behind the house, and was playing with some other kids, and another little boy taught me some words I had never heard before, that he made me recite a couple of times to get down. So, proud as punch I went home and proclaimed to my mom: F*** you mom! Her eyes got big, and she said: ‘WHAT DID YOU SAY?’.

Thinking I was cool like my new friends, I smiled and said: ‘F*** you mom!’

Suddenly, she grabbed me, and dragged me by the scruff of the neck into the bathroom, and grabbed a bar of Dove soap, and jammed it in my mouth! Then she grabbed our rinse cup from the toothbrush rack, and filled it with water, and despite my kicking and screaming, made me gargle with it!

wash mouth

Let’s just say that she made an impression!

Even though I was not yet saved, God was pleased that I honored my mom:
Ro 2:26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?
27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?
28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Now, I cannot say that I never cussed again, just not in the presence of my mom!

Why did I keep cussing? Simple, I did not know Jesus, my heart was dark, unredeemed, I was dead spiritually.

Ps 119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

Christianity is not a religion, but a radical personal relationship with the Creator of the universe, by new birth, Christ in us, the hope of glory.

Dogs bark, birds chirp, cats meow, horses whinney, and sinners sin.

Except a man be born again, he cannot even see the kingdom of God.

God did not come to make bad people good or good people better:

Jesus came to make dead people alive!

When we truly receive Jesus,

2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Ga 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

When we truly receive Jesus, He comes into our heart, and changes us on the inside. Our very desires change. We literally become a new creation, a new species of being.

Joy1

Can someone be born again and still cuss?

Unfortunately, yes, but you won’t like it any more.

Kinda like smoking. Can a Christian still smoke cigarettes? Yes, cigarette smoking will not send you to hell, but you may sure smell like you been there. God promises that with long life will He satisfy you, but your body has now become a temple of the Holy Spirit. Smoking may not send you to hell, but you may get to heaven a lot quicker.

1Co 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

Both my mom and dad died of lung cancer, and spending the years at their bedside watching them gasp for breath as the cancer wasted them away, was ugly, horrible, and still vivid in my mind.

I cannot claim to love you, and not warn you of the consequences of your actions.

Why? Because your heart hates it: It is no longer your nature.

I like the way a man said in service some years ago, after he accepted Jesus:
‘You have no idea the things I have done. My heart is dark, yet after I received Jesus, I feel F***king great!”

My wife explained to him that when our clothes get dirty, we wash them. We put them in the machine, with soap and bleach if they are really dirty, and they agitate, and the soap and water cleans them. That the blood of Jesus is like the soap that causes our clothes to become clean, the water is the Word of God.

God will take the darkness right out of our hearts, his blood will wash us, and clean us up.

listen blood
This man, just coming out of the bar, a marine just back from Afghanistan, exclaimed: ‘That’s f***king awesome! Oops, I shouldn’t say that anymore right?’

Right!
Okay, maybe I’ve grown up on military bases, and worked with some rough men most of my life, and I’m not as holy as I need to be, but I break out laughing thinking about this guy.
So relax. God loves you.
Receive Jesus, and ask Him to forgive you for cussing, and to cleanse your heart from it.
He’s holy, and He cannot lie. He loves you and He will forgive!
Ps 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
God loves you, and so do I, so let’s pray

:God loves You

Father, I need You. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, and cleanse it, and cleanse my tongue from my profanity. Fill me with Holy Spirit, and show me what You want me to do. Help me to understand Your Word, and to care for and love my fellow man. In Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’
