Redeem YOUR Time – Eternity is Counting on it!

How to make an Eternal Impact with your Life!


‘As if you could kill time without injuring eternity’

Henry David Thoreau.

Is Jesus Lord of your time?

time number end

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.


Today we are going to talk about the Lordship of Jesus in our personal lives. We see here that making Him Lord, is a condition for salvation. Over the next few weeks, we are going to look at the Word of God, to see how well each of us are doing in this area. If Jesus is the Lord, He must be our Lord. If His is our Lord, we must do what He says.


I have spoken about establishing the  Lordship of Jesus in our personal lives. I have shown how the first commandment, commanding us to love God, precedes service.

I have spoken about seeking first the kingdom of God, before doing anything else. Making Jesus our personal Lord. I have shared about ACTS, as a simple method of placing Him first, and how we have used this acronym for a season in our family devotion.  What does ACTS stand for?




Praise and Worship


Confess God’s Word back to Him, expecting Him to perform it in your life.

Thank Him for your life, your family, His Word, for answered prayer, for this church.

Ask Him for those things you need that day. Wisdom, strength, courage to make changes in your life, to talk to others about Him. For your daily needs.

obey seek first

Okay, today we are going to look at another aspect of Jesus Lordship. Today we are going to see from the Word of God if Jesus is Lord of our time.


Romans 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.


2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)


Do you realize that this age, the church age, is the greatest season any person serving God has ever seen upon the earth?

God is not just for us, but lives in us. Our bodies have become His temple. When He decides to act in the earth, He has obligated Himself to work through one of us.


Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.


Jesus has redeemed us, is redeeming us, and will redeem us. At the cross, He said “It is finished.”


Yet 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:


He is redeeming us. Changing us, molding and making us into His image and likeness.


Soon, whether by way of the grave or with the triumphant shout of an archangel, we will see Him face to face. He will redeem us.


Yet in this verse it clearly states that we are to redeem our time.

It has been said that the average Canadian spends 2-1/2 hours each day watching Television.


80% of Hollywood executives think there is a link between TV violence and real-life violence.

– 91% of children say they feel upset or scared by violence on television.

– 12 medical studies since 1985 link excessive television-watching to increasing rates of obesity.

– 202 junk food ads are generally aired during four hours of Saturday morning programming.

– TV-Free America


– 200,000 – the number of violent acts the average American child sees on TV by age 18; 16,000 – the number of murders witnessed by children on television by age 18.

– 10% of youth violence is directly attributable to TV viewing.

– 73% of Americans believe TV and movies are responsible for juvenile crime.

– TV-Free America


2-1/2 hours per day. That is 912.5 hours, or 38 days every year, laying there in front of the TV. There are only twelve months in every year. That means that Canadians spend over one month of every year, feeding their flesh. Now, if every Canadian were watching two and half hours a day of good anointed television ministry, what a difference we would see!

What about Social Media? Yes, it is an incredible tool to stay connected with people, and to share our faith, but how much time is wasted watching cat video’s, and reading tabloid type articles that are a total waste of productive kingdom time.

social media

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.


If what you are watching is not true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of a good report (the news is not generally a good report), full of virtue (not lies), does not cause you to praise God, do not watch it.

It is not bringing life to you, but is taking life from you. It is sucking the anointing, joy, fruitfulness, and prosperity of God out of you, like a giant leach. Killing your dreams, desires, vitality and polluting your mind. Kill it, before it kills you.

inspire drain


I asked my congregation at one point, for all of us to take a television fast. To spend our daily TV time in the Word, job hunting, volunteering, taking a course, reading our Bible (what a concept), or telling someone about Jesus. How many did it?

To give God a tithe of our most precious resource, our time! To spend 2-1/2 hours each day, actually praying, reading the Bible, feasting our souls upon good Christian ministries, to see what God would do for our lives.

For those of us who did, and are still doing this, incredibly great things happen, as inner hungers and passions get legitimately met by Jesus, and His living waters – there comes that peace that passes all understanding, and a true spirit led life that is powerful, with eternal impact upon this generation.

love for God


If you seek Him first, and 1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:


So, you have made Jesus your Lord, you are praying every morning, seeking Him, craving Him, diligently reading His Word and seeking to do what it says. Your due time is coming. He will exalt you.


Now, we need to do something. You must act. Now!


“If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” – Eccl. 11:4 (NLT)


Proverbs 14:23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.

labor press

Confession alone will not bring godly success, we must do what we confess. We need to begin the do’s of the gospel.


The most important thing we can do is to share the gospel. Only the gospel has the power to turn men from darkness to light. To separate them from hell to turn towards heaven.


In Reinhard Bonnke’s book ‘Time is running out” he makes this statement:


“If 10,000 people live near your church, according to statistics, four of them die every week. Is it satisfactory then, if only one of the 10,000 is saved every month, or even every week? I find it is impossible to exaggerate the urgency of sharing the gospel! The greatest work on earth is to preach the good news, and the greatest need in the world is the need of the gospel.”


We believe in healing around here, but Jesus taught, preached and healed. First of all he went.

Here is a very easy way for you to go, today. Simply cut and paste this link on a friends email, or social media, who you know needs Jesus:


We believe in financial prosperity around here, yet the power to get wealth is ‘to be my witnesses.’ In the earth.


We must use our time to win souls for eternity.


This life is but a dressing room for eternity.

dressing room


People we know are going to die. We could of shown them the love of Jesus, fed, them clothed them, served them, given them money, even healed them, yet if they are not born-again they will go to hell. Hell is not some theological concept but a very real place.


We are called with a purpose. We are redeemed. Yet, there is a time to grow up, and recognize our responsibility to the family business. Our Father in heaven is in the redemption business. Everything we are or hope to be must revolve around that.


Mike Murdock states that the secret of successful people is in their daily routine. Stephen Covey, a leadership expert talks about 7 Habits of Sucessful People. The secret of your success is in your daily routine.


Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

Psalm 90:12


time today

Matthew 25:15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.


God uses people according to their ability.


1 Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.


Yet abilities can change. You take a night course to improve your ability. You deliberately find someone gifted in a certain area, and ask them to teach you what you need in that area.

ability dependability


What is you daily schedule? Do you just get up and let things happen? Or do you deliberately decide that this week is going to be different, that you are going to make changes for the better.



In summation: Win souls. Get involved with something that actually presents the gospel to an unsaved person.


Improve yourself. Apply for a better job. Take a night course. Improve your ability. If you want a change, you need to make a change.


Question: What are you going to do with your time tomorrow? How are you going to use it to affect eternal result and reward?

Lets pray

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I look to heaven, to Your throne, to You Jesus, to fully embrace the purpose for which I am created, that I not shrink back, become distracted, or compromised, in that critical purpose. Today, please rule and over-rule all of MY thoughts and plans, and become actually, the Lord of my time. May I manage the days and minutes, accurately, intimately led by You Holy Spirit – that I might make HIStory visable to this hurting world. Amen’

Here Is The Case For Soulwinning:

Here Is The Case For Soulwinning:


A Word from Dr. T.L. Osborne


1. Non-Christians do not go to church.
2. Our commission is to preach the gospel to every creature. -Mark 16:15
3. Since unbelievers do not go to church, then Christians must take the gospel to them wherever they are, outside the walls of the church.

This is what Christianity is all about. in the First Century Church, both leaders and laity were daily in the temple and in every house. they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. – Acts 5:42

They did it in the temple-daily
They did it in the houses-daily
And they evangelized their world.

So, here I bring the love of Jesus and the message of eternal life to this, my world!

Two By Two!

Two by two
Luke 10 Deut 3, 4

Luke 10:1 ¶ After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest

Many of you already know, that I am a certified commercial diver, having graduated Seneca College Underwater Skills program, in King City, Ontario, Canada, in 1980.On long drives, or during campfires, my children often get me to tell them ‘fish’ stories, and we have fun sometimes going on Youtube and looking up cool fish or sharks that I have seen diving.
Chris Karen Walsh's photo.
In this pic, I pray to God, the dive buddy taking the picture is holding more than a camera! Like a speargun, pull spear, or bangstick would be more comfortable!

In either scuba, or any untethered diving, the number one rule of safety, is never dive alone, always dive with a buddy.

Seems the principal works in construction really well too, when we ran the carpentry company, we generally sent out an experienced carpenter or journeyman, with a helper, or apprentice. I tried to pair them up according to personality and experience, but some interesting things happened over the years. Several two man teams, enjoyed working together so much, that instead of raising up seasoned men, to go apprentice another helper, we simply bumped their payscale up to pay them what they were worth (not actually, we paid them what the industry could bear, in my mind, they were worth far more than I was able to pay them), and these guys continued working together. Billy and Jim, two of my lead guys, ended up together for seven years, and even after I closed the company, they still work together!

We see this in marriage too . I believe God calls not just individuals, but families,
Ephesians 3:15 (AMP)
For Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name].
Chris Karen Walsh's photo.
I believe that when a husband and wife team up in the call of God, to accomplish the work of the ministry, tremendous things occur!

Think of great marriages in the gospel: Billy Joe and Sharon Daugherty, TL and Daisy Osborne, Ken and Lynette Hagin, Gordon and Freda Lindsey, John and Dodie Osteen, to name a few. Examples of how the call, commission, and power of God can flow through a husband and wife team, into their families, to radically impact the earth, for generations!

Gen 2:18 ¶ And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
marriage puzzel
When an authentic vision or mission statement from God is released in the earth, marriages become alive. Sure, the man is responsible to hear God and implement the visions clearly in his family, but suddenly, his family comes alive! There is no tyranny in the home, only love, as Holy Spirit distributes to each family member their part in the plan of God, and a husband is free to love His wife and children, prayerfully protecting them in the plan, and there is peace, joy, and fulfillment in every area of life.

I see the submission required by wives, somewhat different than many preach it.
“Sub”, means under. Mission, is the vision or mandate of God for the home. When a man is going for it in Jesus, and taking the time to lovingly explain what God has placed in his heart for the family, it is generally (if not always), something far bigger than he can presently accomplish. The family starts running with the vision, and helping each other, in love to both grow spiritually, but to accomplish what God has said. Then the wife comes under the mission, not under his tyranny, and together, as joint heirs to the graces of life, they work towards building the kingdom of God. Forgiving, instructing, loving, supporting, and humbly working with each other, to build something far greater than themselves.

A legacy, that should the Lord tarry (based upon the signs of the times, not sure that will happen), that will last for generations to come! Love never fails!
It is for life! Heard this quote that I thought was cute:
“An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have; the older she gets, the more interested he is in her.”
Mystery author Agatha Christie, who was married to one.

God has a helpmate for you. You are not generally designed to work alone. He sent them out two by two. Question is, who is the other person to work with during this season of your life and ministry?

Let’s pray:
‘Father, please make your vision for my life crystal clear, and help me to understand and communicate it lovingly and clearly to those around me. Show me who I am supposed to work with in it, and may I not chase wrong relationships that are contrary to Your specific calling upon my life, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen”

Share the Gospel On-line

Okay, so we all know, that we are supposed to Go into all the world and share the gospel, the good news of Jesus love, but how? We work, go to school, raise children, and life is busy!

Here’s how:

I have written over a thousand articles on Christian faith and living. Here are 7 on evangelism.

Read them, most are very short.

Then, when you see something on Social Media or email, that is clearly contrary to the Word of God, or encounter a person that is searching, hurting, lonely, suicidal, going through hell, simply cut and paste one of these links and send it to them.

Some will get mad at you, and blast you. Whatever.

Do it anyway!

We are not God, simply called to try and represent Him, and bring His message to this hurting world.

Like Nike says, Just Do it!

Isaiah 6:1 ¶  In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

2  Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

3  And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

4  And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

5 ¶  Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

6  Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

7  And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.

8  Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

9 ¶  And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.

10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.



1 Sam 3:1 ¶  And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.

2  And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see;

3  And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep;

4  That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.

5  And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down.

6  And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.

7  Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.

8  And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.

9  Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

10  And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

11    ¶  And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.




Acts 9:1 ¶  And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,

2  And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.

3  And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:

4  And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

5  And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

6       And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

Three men, all servants of God, suddenly were faced with the presence or voice of God Himself. Isaiah, Samuel, and Saul. All obeyed, and they each went on to do great exploits for God.

The Scripture is our guide, yet as great as these records of the call of God upon these men’s lives is, it’s your turn now. God is calling you, specifically, and He will reveal to you, the reason you were born, the high calling you are destined to live!


In the eleventh century, King Henry III of Bavaria grew tired of court life and the pressures of being a monarch. He made application to Prior Richard at a local monastery, asking to be accepted as a contemplative and spend the rest of his life in the monastery. “Your Majesty,” said Prior Richard, “do you understand that the pledge here is one of obedience? That will be hard because you have been a king.”

“I understand,” said Henry. “The rest of my life I will be obedient to you, as Christ leads you.”

“Then I will tell you what to do,” said Prior Richard. “Go back to your throne and serve faithfully in the place where God has put you.” When King Henry died, a statement was written: “The King learned to rule by being obedient.” When we tire of our roles and responsibilities, it helps to remember God has planted us in a certain place and told us to be a good accountant or teacher or mother or father. Christ expects us to be faithful where he puts us, and when he returns, we’ll rule together with him.

Steve Brown, Key Biscayne, Florida.

Some think that the only way we can truly serve Jesus is in the vocation of ministry, yet ministry simply means: ‘to serve’. We can all obey Jesus and serve in whatever vocation He calls and commissions us.

The Command

great commission2
Mark 16:15  And he said unto them,
Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18  They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 ¶  So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20    And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Matt 28:18  And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20    Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

This is the great commandment, that we call the great commission. All of us are called into this work, and it is the last days:

Pack, Pay for someone else to go, or Pray fervently for those of us who have already gone!

The Commission
Heaven invades

Luke 16: Heaven and Hell. Hell is real. Lazarus made heaven, the rich man burns in hell to this day. He prayed that someone be sent to tell his family about Jesus, than they not come to Hell. People in Hell are praying you go to their families and bring the gospel to them!

1 Tim 2:1 ¶  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

4  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9       Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Romans 10:8  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Salvation: Must Believe (that God raised Jesus from the dead)

Confess (out loud)

Jesus is Lord (not just the Lord, but your Lord, must put Him in charge of your life)

11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

13 ¶  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Must believe and speak

Rom 10:13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

14  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

15  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

16  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

16    But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

This is the process of the gospel.

1.People must hear the voice of God, and be sent.

2.They must obey and actually go.

  1. Once they go, they must preach!
  2. The people they preach to must hear.
  3. When they hear, they must believe.
  4. When they believe, they must Call upon the name of the Lord.
  5. There will be a glorious echo from heaven, and all who call upon the name of the Lord, will be saved!

Can people believe and not speak?

Yes, but they will not be saved. Silent prayer will not cut it.

John 12:36  While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

37 ¶  But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

38  That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?

39  Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,

40  He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

41  These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

42 ¶  Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

43    For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

44 ¶  Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.

45  And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

46  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

47  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

48    He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
hell is real

Can someone hear and not believe?

Matt 13: 11  And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

12  that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

Mark 4:14  And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

15  For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

17    But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

God’s side is that anyone, anywhere, at any time that turns to Him and calls upon the name of Jesus shall be saved.

Can people be around Christians and not hear? Yes. Like Jonah many of us go into our day to day worlds, and we do not preach. People literally are going to hell around us simply because we refuse to tell them about God’s plan of salvation. We must preach.

Are there Christians who don’t go? Obviously! How many us will go to the person next to us at work and tell them about Jesus? If we won’t go to the person next to us at work, how can God ever send us to China or the uttermost parts of the earth?

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Can anyone say that they have not been sent by God?

Not after tonight! Jesus, King of glory, your Lord and Master sends you to tell others about Him. Matt 10:6  But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7  And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

7       Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Now all of this is going to take the Holy Ghost in order to accomplish anything.

The Reception:
great commission nations

Acts 10:1 ¶  There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,

2  A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.

3  He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.

4  And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.

5  And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter:

6       He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.

Angels are not instructed to preach the gospel, but assist us in our responsibility in preaching it. All over the world are Cornelius’ type people. People honestly seeking God that God is visiting and drawing to Himself. God may well be speaking to them about you!

Acts 8:27  And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

28  Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

29  Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.

30  And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

31  And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.

32  The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:

33  In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

34  And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?

35    Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

This Ethiopian was already reading the Bible, seeking God. God sent Philip to Him. There are Ethiopian type people all over this region who are seeking God. God wants to send you to them.

Acts 16:6 ¶  Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,

7       After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.

You too, need to move, and have faith that God will direct you to the right people, places and situations that are ready for Him, and for you!

Acts 5:32  And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

As you obey, He will show Himself strong on your behalf.

Daniel 11:32  And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

I believe in you here. That you are a people of destiny, a doer of daring deeds. A history maker and nation shaker designed to make eternal impact with your life!

I want to pray for you tonight a commissioning prayer. A fire send-off if you will. An endowment of power from heaven for your life:

Act 4: 29  And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

30  By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

31  And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

Let’s pray:

Father, speak to me about my part in the Great Commission. Fill me with the Holy Spirit, and grant me all boldness to speak your word, with signs following, bearing witness that you Father, raised Jesus from the dead, Amen’

Mark 16 :15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 ¶ So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

This is the great commission, there is only one question: Where will you go to preach the gospel tomorrow?

Doesn’t matter whether you feel like the tortoise or the hare, Go anyway, for in Jesus you are a winner!

Whether at work, over a neighbors fence, in the bus stop, or in a prison, a project, a job site, a hospital, across town, another state, or in my case, to other nations, we must go and tell the good news, the simple eternal story: Its all about Jesus, God the Son, the baby born at Christmas, with no earthly father, the seed of God.

The One who lived without sin, and who did miracles, showing us how to live, the One who died upon a cross, giving His life as a ransom for you and me, that we might be forgiven and reconciled to God. The One who was raised from the dead, alive forevermore, The Eternal King who Reigns on High, and who loves and lives to make this world again, a place of righteousness and holiness.

He is Lord! Will you recieve Him? Serve Him? Live for Him? Love for Him?

Taking the Fear Out of Sin…

Taking the fear out of sin…

fear obedience

Judges 21:25

In those days [when the judges governed] there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes


As we have pursued a true grace filled life, fully led of the Holy Spirit, we as a people discover, that we must keep a careful watch upon the words we speak each day, and our actions, being quick to ask Jesus forgiveness when we miss it.

As we have purposed to follow Him fully, we discover the fear of the Lord: not just an awesome reverence for who He is, but an actual respect and fear, as we submit to His intimate correction and chastening.

Hebrews 12:6

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

Hebrews 12:7

If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

It is only those God intimately loves that He corrects, and disciplines…

Yet, it has been said that Jesus bore all of our sins, past, present and future, and that we live a grace filled life, full of love, mercy, goodness, with no consequences for sin.

Let’s look at this for a minute.

If I was the devil, and I wanted to destroy you, but recognized that you were now born-again, powerful, walking in kingdom authority, part of the rule and reign of Jesus, I would not confront you head on.

James 2:19

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Satan knows the awesome power of God, and his judgment to come, and he and his demons tremble.

So, what does he do?

He seduces through deception, and small compromises, and gets you to think that small compromises are okay, God won’t mind, and since the consequences of these compromises are not always immediate – He takes the fear out of sin.

He did it with Eve, in the age old lie, ‘Did God really say?’

Now, he had to replace the fear of consequences, with faith in no consequences.

Let’s look at it.

3 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons

Notice, if you will the beginning of the deception: ‘Hath God said?’v1

Satan knows exactly what God said, and He also knows that if you obey what God said, He has no power over you, you are unstoppable.

And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled
full obedience

Notice the next verse, the woman said that we should not eat NOR touch the fruit of the tree.

Here we see her deception, because she had added to the specific commandment of God given to Adam.

Gen 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die

Now, the devil lies with specific intent: He says, ‘You shall not surely die’ then he presents glorious rewards,

Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Here is the wonderful deception. ‘You shall be like gods’

  1. They were already like gods. Adam was god of this world, with full authority and dominion to rule the earth, with God.
  2. Knowing good and evil – Satan knew evil, Eve did not. The Bible said she was deceived. Yet, satan’s deception was very good: 1. Disobey the clear commandment of God 2. There will be no consequences for your disobedience 3. You will become greater than you are, like a god.

There is much that can be said here, but the point Holy Spirit has me to make is simple:

Satan works on us by taking the fear out of sin.

More specifically, he takes the fear of the consequences of sin from us.

So, he begins his work on us, just like he did Adam and Eve, because he is at least as smart as Balaam, and knows that if he can get us doing enough hardened sin, God Himself will destroy us.

This is wonderfully illustrated in the Christian movie, ‘TimeChanger’

Time Changer

As I read this passage of Scripture, I was reminded of this truth.


Ezekiel 21:

24 “Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Again and again you remind me of your sin and your guilt. You don’t even try to hide it! In everything you do, your sins are obvious for all to see. So now the time of your punishment has come!

Isaiah 5:21

Woe (judgment is coming) to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever and shrewd in their own sight!

Just because consequences were not instant, does not mean they will not come.

More and more I feel like a voice crying out in the wilderness, with tears in my eyes, and heart full of love for God and His people, crying REPENT!

So few hear, so few apparently care…

Let’s pray:

‘Father, You are holy. Your Word is true. Search me, show me, and give me grace to live holy, pure, and sinless in Your sight, not just positionally through Jesus blood, but practically, in my daily thoughts, words and deeds. I ask you come as a refining fire and grant me purity of heart and motive. I ask, knowing I am heard and answered, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus.”

Good Gold – Money with a Mission!

Good gold!

money mission
Gen 2:11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

God created gold and precious stones, and they were good!

People think that one cannot serve God, and have money, but this is simply not true.

Greed is wrong, for it is the love of money, that is the root of all evil.

Money itself is neither good nor bad, it is only what we use it for that makes a difference.

I have noticed that there does not seem to be a lack of vision in the Body of Christ, many people have great ideas to do exploits in the Kingdom of God. Yet vision is spelled M-O-N-E-Y!

Ministry costs money, and finding a way to fund our particular vision, is where practical faith rubber meets the road, and our dreams finds traction to go, grow, build, and accomplish great exploits!

money care
God wants you blessed in every area of life, and that includes financially.
Wisdom will produce wealth, and long life.

Proverbs 3:13 ¶ Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

Money with a mission.

What if those of us that could, actually, deliberately, made more money on purpose, for the sole purpose of supporting the gospel, and alleviating human suffering in the earth?

“Our motivation for accumulation is distribution. We increase in order to be the blessing that God has called us to be.” – Pastor George Pearsons via the BVOV

Generosity: Carefully managing our God given resources so that we can freely give to those in need. Sign in Skiatook, OK.

givers takers

Deuteronomy 8:18  (AKJV)

18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

We see that God gives His people power to get wealth, but for a reason: TO ESTABLISH HIS COVENANT IN THE EARTH.

I see no difference in this Old Testament reference, and the heart of God’s love for the whole world.

Acts 1:8(AKJV)

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

In the New and better covenant, we are given the mighty Holy Spirit, power from on high, to be a witness for the kingdom.

What does a witness do? They testify of Jesus! They proclaim the gospel!


Because faith only comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, and when a person believes, they are adopted into God’s family, an heir of the kingdom, a partaker of God’s covenant promises.

Do you see it? The power of the Holy Spirit we use to obtain wealth, must be for the purposes of furthering God’s kingdom, establishing His covenant in the earth.

Money with a mission will perform the acts of compassion commanded us in Matt 25, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick, the prisoner, getting water to the thirsty.

give hurt

For God so loved the world that He gave….

Your needs are met by what you get outta life, Your life is made through what you give…

You can make a living through your giving…



Let’s pray:
‘Father, your Word says that Wisdom is crying out, desiring to meet with the sons of men. I too cry out, for wisdom to come to my life, that I might experience a blessed life, full of righteousness, peace, joy and prosperity in your kingdom. Money Come Now, that I might do more for the kingdom of God. As it comes, and I see Your increase, may I recognize You are the One giving it, and may I use it deliberately to promote the kingdom of God. I ask this, knowing I am heard, for it is in your name I pray, Lord Jesus, Amen!’

Persecution Purifies – Choose This Day Who You Will Serve!

Persecution Purifies


Armed with the mind to suffer:

Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

In this account, we see persecution occurring in the early church:

Acts 8:1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judæa and Samaria, except the apostles.

Here’s my take on this verse: People found the love of Jesus, and the beautiful community that had come as a result of Holy Spirit being poured out upon a group of believers, and this rich, ever deepening fellowship was wonderful.

persecution surprise

Yet, the church is more than a place of loving community. It is God’s arsenal against the gates of hell, that shall never prevail against it!

The great commission had become the great omission here, and instead of aggressively working to take the gospel to the nations, they had become complacent, comfortable, and probably segregated from the general population, intent on simply growing their own families and community, and not reaching out to the world.

Great commission

So, God allowed persecution to come.

What was the result?

‘And they were all scattered abroad’.

If we refuse to willingly GO in obedience to the clear directive of the Word of God, seems God will allow the Word of God written upon our hearts to get out there the hard way.

And so we see America today. Today they not only legalized same-sex marriage federally, but have ruled that it be enforced in each state. They have already brought in government health care that provides for abortion, and so demons are ruling where we have permitted them, and now there will come persecution to the church in America.

There is no demilitarized zone in the kingdom of God. We are either aggressively enforcing with our faith and authority the victory Jesus has provided over the world the flesh and the devil, or we are responding to hellishly inspired attacks.

The day of comfortable Christian community has ended, and now, godless people demand: ‘Who are you to tell me what to do?’

When we say that sin is wrong, they will persecute us, and we must stand boldly in the love of God and proclaim the gospel.

As we do, the leaders of the day will feel the power of the Holy Spirit….

Acts 24:25

And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled,

It has become kingdom against kingdom, as God flexes His muscles against this onslaught of hell.

build church key

It is the last days: Luke 21:10

Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

2 Timothy 3(AKJV)

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

These are those who will bring the persecution….

For those of us that have endured hardship, and sold out for Jesus, it will just be another day in the gospel, good news, as God moves desperately needed laborers into kingdom work, but for those serving their own ‘version’ of Christianity:

Amos 6:1

Woe to them that are at ease in Zion,

 please God

Good news to those sold out for him…tough times for those sitting on the fence as God radically adjusts things…

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, in Your light, we see light. Show me the areas where I have compromised Your Word, and neglected Your will, Your ways, and Your work. As shaking comes, give me grace to stand boldly for you, serving in love, the great commission and this great harvest You are bringing into your church. I love You Lord Jesus. Amen’

The Blog – Approaching 1000

Looked on my blog site this morning,  to discover that this is my 995th blog post! (There are now 1072!)blog think


I have thought that typing up all of these thoughts that have needed expression over the years might just change the world.

Perhaps, some of them actually will.


They have resulted in three published books, and many open doors to speak or answer difficult questions for people.

Yet, it is a labor of love, a ministry unto the Lord, because many of the great things I have written, have clearly not been read by many people.

Guess Jesus left the 99, to rescue the one….

Gotta believe this verse this morning:

For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
For those of you who like relevant Bible teaching, here are some links to various articles I have written over the years. For those of you that are busy, and looking for a way to share your faith, easily, you might consider simply cutting and pasting the links here, to answer some inquiries to what the Bible says about different topics.
If you actually read them all, I imagine your life would be changed….

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!
