LET’S RE-THINK TAKING A SABBATH

Dear Reader, 

The following verse contains a PROMISE for each person, leader or lay, from every nation, who carves time apart from all their leader doings, busy schedule, to “Come Apart” in a Sabbath Day -“First Love” God honoring, leader refreshing, ongoing RELATIONSHIP with the Risen Lord.

“Even them I will bring to My holy mountain,
And make them joyful in My house of prayer.
Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices
Will be accepted on My altar;
For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Isaiah 56:7

MINISTRY PRINCIPLE:  “Being All KNOWING does not necessarily mean that one is all LOVING.

Let both the writer’s and each reader’s main Goal: to be a part of theRevelation 3 True Bride, known  as the Overcoming Philadelphian “Enduring Love Walk” End Time Church.

MOTTO? “To know the love of God which passes knowledge” Ephesians 3:1

Here is the overview of another scripture which the Lord impresses me is for senior office leaders. It follows after repeated OCFC Fresh Words (now in archives on http://www.OCFCleader.TV web channel) Amos 3:7 “Digging Deeper Apostolically” Parts 1-4. In fact, God has downloaded to this writer several extremely sober, one -two somber, leader directed pointed words. **honestly this AMOS 3:7 VIDEO SERIES would be way back in our postead archive..in 2012 BUT worth trying to find)

SUBMITTED LEADER SELAH if the Holy Bible teaches,  in both the Old and New Testaments,  that “judgement (meaning NON ACCUSATIVE SELF JUDGING) begins in the house of God,” then WHERE in each House of God would this imply that all NON ACCUSATIVE SELF JUDGING truly begin?

The writer believes that this is a top leader process, but it also pertains to everyone else under his /her spiritual charge.

And the pioneering apostolic writer also includes her doing her own self judging as the pioneering founder, head of THIS leader ministry.

KEEPING A SABBATH DAY APART

Repeatedly, over the last ministry 5 pioneering years, God has often impressed upon the writer  the extreme importance of EACH pastor, apostle, prohet, evangelist, and teacher, (and all other leaders) periodically REMOVING THEMSELF from their apostolic work for a refreshing, non legalistic, Sabbath. (Please read Isaiah 56 and Isaiah 58 in their context)

And while this is NOT to be viewed legalistically, as we are now living PAST the LEGAL REQUIREMENTS, and now living under granted great grace through the atoning blood of the Risen Christ,   the writer believes that a PRINCIPAL of honoring a Sabbath LEADER TIME apart from our work will reap the COMMANDED BLESSINGS mentioned in Isaiah 56 and 58.

HISTORY OF THE JEWISH/LEGALISTIC SABBATH

Moses received the 10 Commandments from the Lord, the second one being to REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT SET APART AND HOLY TO THE LORD (Exodus 2:20)

Yet we no longer abide under the Old Testament Legalistic Law. And today we are not advocating that any person take a step backward.

Following  is another important scripture that God has repeatedly impressed as one of His Present Day Words for mature pioneering 5 fold leaders.

“Even them I will bring to My holy mountain,
And make them joyful in My house of prayer.
Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices
Will be accepted on My altar;
For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Isaiah 56:7

ISAIAH 56:7 IN CONTEXT AND MAJOR PURPOSE

The Book of Isaiah is set in the midst of the following historical, spiritual conditional context:

Isaiah is written to God’s leaders who are living in the midst of spiritual mixture. They are warned that while God is truly desiring to send his strong, burden breaking anointing (Isaiah 27:10)to free them from the yoke brought by the fierce Assyrians, that due to their own compromise, such as following foreign influences, that by their own choices, it is leaving Him unwilling, unable to truly move.

Read Isaiah chapters 1-10 (for context).

NOTE the sober, holy conviction of the national prophet Isaiah who has His own experience passing before the awesome fear of the Lord: Chapter 6.

NOTE: that that the vision of God’s 7 Spirits then follows: Isaiah 11:2

NOTE: the prophecy regarding the spiritual ongoing fruit of the character of Messiah, Jesus Christ, Yeshua,’ never enables the accuser:Isaiah 11:3

Back to Isaiah 56 (and also mentioned in Isaiah 58, aka “the God’s chosen fast” chapter: The leadership honoring their Maker God by keeping His sabbath.

MAIN SELAH OF TODAY’S BLOG:

Isaiah 56 the entire context for Isaiah 56:7,

“Even them I will bring to My holy mountain,
And make them joyful in My house of prayer.
Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices
Will be accepted on My altar;
For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Isaiah 56:7

Basic Chapter 56 Non Legalistic Overview

The author reminds the reader that we are now living under the New Testament nonLevitical overview. So that whenever we mention “taking a Sabbath” the writer means “NON LEGALISTICALLY” as in every single person needs to consult with the Lord about HOW, WHEN to carve out “time apart” to honor God in a sabbath day, First Love Focus, Psalm 91 Secret Place get away to honor, to show due respect, to admire and truly love and to receive, hear back from God.

And due to the real acknowledgment, that if one is a top pioneering senior leader, the “buck stops here.” implying that if workers, staff and volunteers fail to show up, then  YOU are left to do their work, then one must realize that “taking a Sabbath” in a consistent manner is not always permitted by problems, unforeseen situations. And  this is why the author invites each reader to go to the Lord personally to enlist His wisdom, help in “coming away” to be with the Beloved.

The Basic Idea for Isaiah 56:7 Time Apart from Work, Schedules, Business, etc:

1. THE APOSTOLIC LEADER BLESSING

“Even them I will bring to My holy mountain”

The Mountain of the Lord is the symbol for the place of meeting directly with God, as prophet Moses did when he “knew God’s ways, rather than just “his hand.”
And make them joyful in My house of prayer.

Coming in to work, office, ministry will no longer be a “chore.” There will be brand new JOY in the Journey and ongoing abiding rest, satisfaction.

For mature intercessors, there will be less super sensitivity, overly super serious, over introspection, but rather a new light hearted deep playful real JOY.

*Thus taking time off from ALWAYS being “deep in the prayer closet” is similar to a pastor, leader taking time apart to lighten up with time with God, family and recreation as led by time apart with the Lord.
“Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices
Will be accepted on My altar.”

Meaning: all the difficult days, hard pioneering work, sacrifice, putting up with difficult people, intense warfare, extreme testings, and also personal offerings of time, money and one’s own Life will be well regarded by the Lord who watches not just ‘our Good Works” but places more emphasis on our Motives.
“For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” 

The writer apostolically submits that all pioneering 5 fold ministers who put God ahead of pioneering work will never “lose their First Love” and thus remain in true communion with the Lord, in touch with family, with them self and will never be rebuked as “losing their First Love” (as the Holy Spirit rebuked the Lampstand in Revelation 3)

The First Love Leader will never become spiritually /mentally calloused, will remain filled with the perceptive, compassion of the noncritical, non accuser enabling Messiah (Isaiah 11:3). He /she will never accidentally succumb to the I Samuel 1 Compassion Fatigued, Quick to Snap Judge High Priest Eli Leader Syndrome.” *

* I Samuel 1: Eli High Priesthood

the surely seasoned, middle aged, well versed, leader experienced High Priest Eli, was taking a break outside when  he spied the grieving weeping Hannah shaking with sorrow on the temple steps. Rather than immediately rising up in human compassion to wonder, “what is wrong with that female,” the weary, jaded priest accused her of “being drunk.” (formula /reasoning/stereotyping brought on by a dry spiritual heart, weary “I’ve seen it all and know it all by now” hardened dull, imperceptive, work formula” apostolic leader mind.)

For  My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” 
The real Season of the New God Move is soon upon us. The House of God must be a spiritually safe, emotionally healthy and mature accepting Sanctuary.

It must not regard any kinds of persons with a “respecter of some persons” spirit based on appearance, outer court skin color, gender , or socioeconomic, or appearance, age, ministry stereotyping, as in bias.

SUBMITTED WITH RESPECT

The widespread “accepted in Christ’s beloved (Ephesians 1:6) pervasive inclusivity, respectful real compassionate giving leader Love will then draw in a God mixture of persons from all races, nations and cultures.

There must be no racism, genderism, agism DISRESPECT but rather a REAL RESPECT for many different types of God made Humans,  albeit in the “holy fear of the Lord.” thus enabling the Houses of God to resemble” a house of prayer for all nations.
THUS this “accepting compassionate, warm, humble,  inclusiveness” models “Genuine Love” an over all reputation in a community, apostolic leadership sense (scent, aroma) that conveys,

“You will know they are Christians by their Love.”

Be Aware of the HALT Position

MARCH 27, 2013

Big Blessings from Taveau D’Arcy

Here is a reprint of an extremely important leader article from 2001. I pray that it is encouraging.

In His Love, Dr. T

Be Aware of the HALT Position

© 2001 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved under international law

 I would like to offer a warning to every leader in these days. It is simply this:

BE AWARE OF THE HALT POSITION.

    The HALT position is recognized in the 12 Step programs as the times in which a person is most likely to succumb to their weaknesses, bad habits and temptations and fall into sin. The acronym HALT stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired.

Let us examine Luke 4:1-4 (Amplified) as an example of the HALT position:

“Jesus, full of, and controlled by, the Holy Spirit, was led into the wilderness.

For forty days in the wilderness (desert) He was tempted

 (Tried and tested exceedingly) by the devil.

And He ate nothing during those days, and when they were

Completed He was hungry.

Then the devil said to Him, ‘If you are the Son of God, order this

 stone to be turned into a loaf of bread.’

And Jesus replied to him, ‘It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word and expression of God.”

Yes, even Jesus experienced the HALT position. And many times we as believers in Jesus Christ find ourselves into the wilderness of testing.  As we study the passage in Luke 4: 1-4, we find that it wasn’t until the end of his 40 day fast,  when Jesus was extremely weak, TIRED and  HUNGRY that the devil showed up in order to test Him.
The Son of God had not eaten for 40 days (some of us fall into temptation within 40 minutes!). No, Jesus may have not experienced ANGER, except maybe righteous anger at His Tempter, but He most certainly would have probably felt very ALONE by Himself in the desert The Savior was most likely extremely TIRED from having had no food for 40 days, and hardly any access to shade or water.  It was at Jesus’ weakest time, that the devil tried to trick Him out of His destiny.

The devil came with quick solutions and fast food. The devil came to guarantee Jesus a jumpstart to His ministry if He gave in….just this one time!

Satan knew who Jesus was. He would guarantee Jesus, that if He bowed down to the devil that Jesus’ fame would spread fast.

The masses would then accept Him and crown Him king.  Jesus would never again have to face the rejection, the uncomfortable feelings of prophetic loneliness: the peculiar loneliness that only the Son of Man could have experienced because He knew  that Who He Was, the Only the One like Himself in all the world.

 One can only imagine how Jesus felt physically after living in the desert heat with only serpents for company!  And undoubtedly the attacks on His spirit from satanic powers were major ones.

Jesus most likely experienced the weight of all of hell’s most oppressive and deceptive forces as they warred against His mind and spirit. The pressure to make Jesus give in to lying vanities was immense. He was being tested by the deceiving forces of the ages.

Because of Jesus’ weakened (HALT) condition, due to His time in the wilderness, Jesus probably found it hard to discern the voice of His Father. The devil’s fast food would make Him more alert and take away those hazy, light headed feelings. But thankfully, for all of mankind, Our Savior, Jesus, resisted the devil’s Get Rich Quick Schemes.

Perhaps you find yourself dwelling in a wilderness of testing. There may be people in your life whom you have befriended that let you down.  Wave upon wave of difficult circumstances might be coming against you.

The times you experience are ones that require endurance and continual perseverance. Attacks may be coming from all sides: family, finances, ministry, etc.  It is THEN that the devil may come to you, just like he came to Jesus. He comes to test you when you are in the HALT position.

King David was in the HALT position when he fell into sin with Bathsheba. He was LONELY and had grown HUNGRY when he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Instead of going our to fight, King David hung around the castle eating his “bread of idleness” which in turn opened his appetites up to other kinds of lusts.

A believer in Christ may find him/herself in the HALT position financially or emotionally.  That is why most people commit crimes.

Jesus stayed a long time in the wilderness where He had no food.  Some of you have had conditions where you were denied emotional food, loving correction, comfort and love.

You may not know how to gain victory over the warfare in your mind, emotions or feelings.  You might feel spiritually empty and be tempted to fall away from God.

Right now some of you are being tried exceedingly in a wilderness of LONELINESS or DEPRESSION.

Others of you have endured countless battles with illness or insecurity.

And there are some of you who have been forced to live in a particular battleground or wilderness for 40 years or 40 weeks. The enemy, satan, may have begun an attack upon your life during your childhood.

There may be patterns of wounding, shame or sorrow that leave you feeling fearful, powerless and hopeless. But, instead of feeling sorry for yourself, you must take Jesus at His WORD.

It is He that has come to bring you GOOD NEWS. “He redeems my life from destruction” and tells us that we are “over comers by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.’ And each one of us should remember the injunction, “Don’t be ignorant of satan’s devices.”

And it is up to US to keep our eyes open for the devil’s traps.

The Trap of Being Supersensitive: The Lord has shown me that when I am in a weakened or HALT position (under great pressure, long times of spiritual, mental, physical attack from many sides, getting no rest, over worked, taking on too many duties, or all of the above) that I may be susceptible to the following:

1) I find it harder to hear God and hence find it harder to make good, quality decisions. I advise putting off making important decisions when in the HALT position. It is so easy to get confused about what you perceive the Lord is ‘telling you’ during those times.

   2) A person in the HALT position is more supersensitive and more likely to become hurt, wounded or offended by the negative attitudes and negative comments from others. The comments may not even be mean or meant to be critical.

However, due to the HALT position, our supersensitive weakened state leaves us open to the devil’s tricks to get us insulted or wounded. He hates unity and he hates people. Especially GOD’S PEOPLE.

 Whenever a pastor, the leadership team or the entire church is living with a season of strenuous spiritual attack, they most likely will experience the HALT position.

This is the time church and ministry (and family!) splits occur. Persons in the HALT position are under strain. They have little or no emotional reserve. Persons who are HALT can easily become supersensitive. This leaves them open to being wounded or easily offended by the remarks or even attitudes of others.

I have listened to pastors preach about the importance of “being in unity” or “remaining as part of the local church body.” But they also complain and vent about “this person becoming offended” and leaving for no apparent reason. It is my opinion that “offenses will come” and therefore, this will be par for each church and ministry until Jesus returns.

However, I believe it not only wise but prudent that each pastor, ministry leader teach the saints in their ministry to BE AWARE OF THEIR OWN HEART AND MENTAL, EMOTIONAL CONDITION.

Leader, please train the saints you lead the value of taking their own emotional PULSE. Teach them to “not be ignorant of satan’s devices’ by continually being alert to satan’s attempts to destroy persons, families and CHURCHES through offense that comings when persons are in the HALT condition. You must first train them how to watch over THEIR OWN HEARTS, then, you must train them

Keep their eyes open for the hearts of OTHERS: team mates in ministry, coworkers, FAMILY MEMBERS.

We are all in various stages of becoming HALT. Some members of the human race live in far worse situations emotionally and financially than others. In society today, and most pointedly, in the CHURCH, there are many single parent and two parent homes that live in HALT conditions.

There are persons who live are emotionally deprived, from abused situations, who fight continual lack of sleep, who never ever stop working, whether on their job and then at home and then for the church.

VERY many in the church battle enormous financial or personal needs. They have family friction, stress on their job, not to mention personal issues, self doubt, worry about world conditions, finances.

The spirit life is submerged beneath the “tyranny of the URGENT” (Oswald Chambers). Instead of being able to filter things through their SPIRITS, they are so exhausted and emotionally and physically depleted; they have no reserves and react in the FLESH. They lose their temper. They are out of control. They make complaints and blame the pastor or the other members of the church.

It is very hard to a person who finds him/herself in the HALT position to have the quality and quantity of time that is needed to HEAR the Lord, much less to find real peace, to enjoy a Sabbath time with their family, and take time to accurately guard/keep watch over their own hearts.

There are many persons in the church who become injured or take things done/said by others in a personal way due to the HALT position.  “There are many voices in the world” says I Corinthians, but persons living under HALT conditions find it hard to differentiate between voices of accusation that originate from our enemy, satan, or the voice in their own flesh, mind.

It is difficult for persons in the HALT position to resist being offended by even well intentioned actions or attitudes.

LEADER, TRAIN YOUR STAFF AND YOUR CHURCH!

 God has taught me to train persons in our ministry to keep watch over THEMSELVES to notice when are HALT. I go over the HALT position training and teach them to be continually self aware, to take their own emotional, spiritual pulse. Help them understand that it is the DEVIL who wants to accuse, abuse and make them weary with overwork.

Each person does need to take ownership of the part that they play in the HALT position: not obeying God’s injunction to SABBATH REST, being a workaholic, never laughing, never playing, always serving others, never taking in enough spiritual food, not having a quality family life due to ministry, work demands.

 Leader, train your people to stand away from themselves and to be objective. Teach them to disregard all feelings of self condemnation/self judgment and to forgive themselves.

Then have them discern what is going on inside their own heart and lives.  Ask them to locate places in their own lives, minds, emotions, life and family situations that are in the HALT position.

Some may have lost their emotional reserves due to marital emotional difficulties. Maybe others from abused homes that have left them endangered due to the immense lack of love and they have a temptation to fulfill those needs through sex outside of marriage or in fantasy, the web.

Then instruct them to keep aware of those persons with whom they work, fellowship and within their families who give evidence of being HALT. They can watch our for THEMSELVES by keeping an eye on OTHERS.

Tell them that whenever they notice persons at work, within the ministry or in their families begin to bear the fruit of being in the HALT position, they need to be more patient, more watchful, and react to what they may do or say more carefully.

Then they must PRAY for these persons: for more grace and strength for them NOT to become wounded or fall into temptation. Prayer helps their STAYING and STANDING POWER.   (“Having done all STAND”)

 Lovingly watching out for others who may be in the HALT position gives persons in the church a chance to be MERCIFUL: when persons are being tempted, stressed out, emotionally abused or deprived, they may not be able to be sweet or kind.

People who live in EXTREME TIMES live  in a battle field either inside their own hearts or in the natural: in their homes or work places.  These people may not be the most pleasant and sweet to live with or be in church with.  The Bible states that,”Love COVERS a multitude of sins.”

(And also, in my opinion, also covers a multitude of bad attitudes, ignorant behaviors and critical, nasty, even prideful, deceptive behaviors.)  We in the church must become educated on what UNCONDITIONAL LOVE really is.

We must be willing to watch out for, but also FORGIVE PERSONS UNCONDITIONALLY, even when they do not ask us to forgive them. We must go to the Father on their behalf and pray the prayer Jesus prayed as He hung on the cross, “Father, FORGIVE THEM, for they KNOW NOT WHAT THEY ARE DOING (DO). This means practicing PATIENCE, LONG SUFFERING: all the qualities of God’s ENDURING LOVE.

    I personally believe that this LONG TERM view of God’s EXTREME and ENDURING LOVE is much of what He holds the Church responsible to display within His Church and in the world…… even in these End Times.

(NOTE: There is a balance in what was just written. There is a need to be watchful and circumspect around all persons in the HALT position.

3) Whenever your find yourself in the HALT position, TREAT YOURSELF GENTLY. PLACE LOWER EXPECTATIONS ON YOURSELF; QUIT TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH SO MUCH.

Don’t let your zeal destroy your health. Try to discipline your thoughts to look UP CONTINUALLY rather than beneath. This is hard due to stress, fear based mental warfare, spiritual attack.

The Lord has taught me about BEING A WARRIOR OF REST (see article on link: WORD FOR CHRIST’S BODY) and given me Psalm 121: 1, “I will lift up mine eyes to the hills from whence comes my help” due to the fact that most demonic, stress, failure feelings make a person tired and take their eyes OFF the Lord.

The devil tempts us to magnify him in our negative situation. This swells our fear based thinking and shrinks, attempts to stamp out, our FAITH in God’s power.

I advise keeping your mind on things that God has done in the past, go to the Word, put on stress relief Christian praise/worship music. But then, during all during the day, remind yourself not to allow yourself to be too inward in your self focus, not so deep inside, worried and negative (down) focused. “LOOK UP”as the word states,” for your redemption draws nigh!”

And that can mean from your private situations, not just in the Soon Return of Our Lord!) Keep your minds on positive, happy things. Continue to BE GRATEFUL. Continually find even the tiniest reasons, things, circumstances that ARE GOING right, TO GIVE GOD THANKS.

 I have found that the HALT position is to chiefly wear us out and make us threadbare in our emotions, bodies and spirits. The continual fight to move forward in the battle drains us, makes us worn out or leaves us needing to fall out.

God has brought new revelation and moves of His presence to the church for these times. We can’t get into the moves of the Holy Spirit as God’s way of assisting the Church in STRESS. I hope to be able to focus on this at a later time.

But this needs to be said, even in passing over the topic quickly: as the pressures increase, the ability to “fight to enter into His rest” is has also increased and so has the outpouring of our joyful, hopeful, peaceful and RELAXING HOLY SPIRIT.

Back to the topic: not getting worn DOWN from/during daily hand to hand spiritual combat, personality issues and all out spiritual, financial and physical attacks.

All these might cause a pastor, leader to become burned out or stay burdened. A leader with a burned out, broken spirit can go to the Lord before his/her time.

The church and church family, as well as the pastor’s, leader’s natural family, may be affected or even infected with soulishness, flesh, soul talk rather than SPIRIT LED, consciousness, talk and direction.  Intense prolonged assault puts pastors’ homes and marriages in the HALT position.

It leads to divorce which means DEATH to God’s nuclear family and leaves ministerial disaster in its wake.  Leadership experiencing the HALT position may bring about the DEATH to God’s work and the fulfillment of their highest calling.

Christian pastor, leader, choose to make time to have a Sabbath rest, take time off for FUN with your family, focus on things other than being in ministry.

Then, establish the daily practice of taking personal inventory to examine your own heart and take stock of how things are going: inside your own heart and personal realm of living and being.

Choose to make it your daily habit to go before the Lord in order to get rid of any burden, make the effort to make sure that every care has been cast, confess each doubt, worry, fear and deep anxiety.

This ensures that nothing blocks your ability to hear from the Holy Spirit.  He wants to be able to speak to you of things not just of the daily burdens of the ministry, but of bright things Eternal and Full of Joy!

KINGDOM BUSINESS BIBLE VERSES

Blessings in this bright MAY!

The writer has been reminded very often by the Lord about the importance of building up our own spiritual strength, with faith to “receive” from Him.

A main part of this is an  over all (ongoing) process of “renewing one’s own mind in God’s Word.”

Hebrews 4:12 teaches, “For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two edged word, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” 

In plain form, there is super human, invisible, supplied power in God’s Word. And all of that mysteriously bypasses what our brains can logically deduce, or our own creative intelligent mortal leader minds can cleverly imagine.

Holy Spirit applied strength and supernatural in God’s Bible   heals, divides between truth and error, and helps us in discerning our own life and heart issues and in the many problem solving issues involving others.

ONE KEY to untapping the power in God’s Bible promises is to actively take responsibility to “renew our mind” with Key Scriptures that seem to spark our FAITH. This is the big secret. To “mingle the Bible promise with active true FAITH.”**

Hebrews 4:2 “but the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not mingled with faith in those who heard.

Thus, once the “Our Mingling Faith” issue is resolved, as  God requires it, then next we select appropriate, encouraging key scriptures with which we can start to “renew our (own)minds.”

This technically begins the big process of “building up” our own supernatural FAITH: and it occurs invisibly, proceeding from  from what’s going on  inside, then to the outside.

And what happens is  similar to going to the gym and lifting weights.

When you first start off pumping iron, it usually takes a while to begin to see results (muscles.) So building up our “faith” works in a similar fashion, as you are building up “spiritual muscles, aka “Most Holy Faith.

EXAMINING SOME KEY SCRIPTURES

Now, with that part complete, let us now proceed to examine some Scriptures which the writer has felt repeatedly impressed to submit to the writer, for what appears to be a very important, even supremely URGENT, different “apostolic” pioneering Season.

1. Daniel 2:28 “There is a God in heaven who reveals secrets.” (implying God still desires to reveal to us new important answers, ideas, and never before understood real (meaning helping in the natural, practical side of market place business, ministry)  and revealing spiritual wisdom Secrets (including ideas, leader vision, deep insight, problem solving, and fresh revenue generating (as in life protecting!) Supernatural Ideas.”
2. Amos 3:7 appears to be  one BIG Key for this season. “God does nothing unless He first tells his servants, the prophets.

* The writer’s senses that God truly WANTS to do something brand new.

* God has a historical pattern of FIRST telling those who walk in the office of the prophet, if they really heed.

* However, there is so much doctrinal confusion with the use of the word “prophet” for the sake of simplicity, we submit that,  one does NOT have to  “walk in the office of the prophet” to really hear from the Lord for business, ministry apostolic leader wisdom and/or fresh revelation.

* And there are many chief pioneering, wise business persons whom God has called to be akin to prophets in His Kingdom Business, yet the majority do so without title, or even true Scriptural knowledge of why God has placed them there, as one of  His representatives.

* Thus the writer takes the liberty in applying Amos 3:7 to ALL who truly Love God, really Know Him, and who place great Value in seeking His personal will for their life, as well as  His daily ministry/business guidance, direction.

FOR THE PIONEERING SKEPTIC

Surely to the occasional reader who may  not truly understand or even approve of the Faith & Renewed Mind Concept, the writer acknowledges that all of this might seem foolish, even a bit mindless.

And any reader who has become used to logic/total reality “human problem solving” such as “pulling themselves up by their own intelligent boot straps,” we must admit that the concept of GOD SUPPLYING and SUPERNATURAL FAITH and ENERGY may  be a bit difficult to comprehend.

Still, the Bible is the ONLY book that works by sheer, untamed, but not gullible, real faith. Please note the Faith Verse Cluster following:

2 Corinthians 5:7 :”We walk by faith and not by sight.” Hebrews 11:6  “Without faith it is impossible to please God.” Hebrews 10:38 “The just shall live by faith.” Hebrews 11:1  “Faith is the substance of  things hoped for, the evidence of things  not seen”

SELAH: Where there is FACT, there is the business system World Realm. But where there is INVISIBLE, MUST BE BELIEVED, SUPERNATURAL BUSINESS FAITH, then God is always “THERE FOR YOU” and this is ultimately responsible for YOU, YOUR SURVIVAL as well as  YOUR TRULY PROSPERING…but will toss in added dividends of LEADER REST, HOPE, TRUE PEACE and INNER REAL JOY!

THUS, when you close both of your eyes, and examine what you SEE inside: we discern, perceive each our own  minds, will, and emotions. (ASIDE: This is our human soul, spirit real realm, the one that either asks Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior or not.)

And admittedly there IS that mysterious, but actual REAL place, is the arena  where the Supernatural Faith Realm must begin.
However,  if one can picture  modern science fiction, DVDs/ Movies, even video games and understand that even those Supernatural Far Fetched Imagined things are indeed conceivable, then we each  must let  NOTHING  hinder OUR BELIEF in  God’s positive, powerful, supernatural ability to PROVIDE, to PROTECT, to give both NEW DAILY STRENGTH and BRIGHT, CLEVER IDEAS.

Yet; Father God being GOD ALONE, ALL will be given, made manifest, ONLY  by and through the Almighty God.
For it is in GOD proving HIMSELF STRONG to us, in His timing,  and in His WAY, which ensures that He gets ALL of the Glory.

LEADER REAL PRESSURE

However, if you are called by the Lord as a captain of an God given( apostolic) work and are a prophetic kingdom business/ ministry, planter, then YOU  certainly are aware of the boatloads of many stresses, applied real pressures, and the over all demands of interaction with various key persons, not excluding your own up close and personal, family, relationships!

And while this writer is running out of time, WHILE mingling  YOUR faith and hope in the LORD’s BIBLE PROMISES,  choose to let the “JOY of the LORD be YOUR STRENGTH.

APPLICATION OF AMOS 3:7

THOUGHT PRODUCER:

IF GOD does nothing without FIRST telling His servants, the prophets, HOW will GOD ever get  a chance to SPEAK with them LONG ENOUGH and DEEPLY ENOUGH to COMMUNICATE (all of the ministry/business  unsolved problems, MYSTERIES and SECRETS) IF He is not given enough TIME to REVEAL all of those mysteries and secrets? 

LEADER Q:

Q. HOW can a leader who never sits still, never cuts off the media, is always under pressure and on the go, isolate the “still small voice” of the Good Shepherd  (aka the Holy Spirit inward witness) IF  they never take TIME apart, isolate and identify, to perceive, and to discern God’s STILL SMALL VOICE ?

Let us CHOOSE  to carve out quality and quantity time before the Lord, to inquire of Him. (Revelation 2:1-7 is the letter to the Leader Lamp stand of the busy Church of Ephesus. God rebukes them for removing HIM from the position of their FIRST LOVE. God informs them  to make needed changes so that He doesn’t remove THEM from their lofty position.)

Church of Ephesus (Rev 2) may be  the supreme example of WHY it is so  extremely important of maintain a close  Leader/Lamp stand ongoing First Love relationship with the Lord: clear, precise, in depth, mutual, back and forth, COMMUNICATION.

As in all kinds of deep, true, satisfying, ONGOING REAL relationships: Good Communication brings intimate caring, sharing and revelation.

Yet, learn to  expect delays: God is not a fast food, micro wave supernatural genie.

But Our God is named EmmanuelGod is With Us” and He is in the Process, the Fourth Man in Our Every Fire 24/7/365.

Thus all every one of us needs, it to place more value on time alongside HIM, and then commit to making it our utmost priority to work along WITH HIM. He then will reciprocate and work along side US as well.

DEPROGRAMMING FROM WORKAHOLICISM

During those carved out special QUIET periods of visiting with the Lord, minister unto Him, perhaps put some worship music on.

Sit patiently and wait. Don’t check the time or become restless: rather, simply REST in His Presence, then  let His Holy Spirit nudge you in what to do, how long to do it.

MANY times God notices how hurried we are, and may test our pure hearted First Leader Love devotion to Him, by simply asking us to sit at His feet and to simply DO NOTHING (but decompress, release all heavy burdens, start to enjoy His rest, begin to soak in His presence.

Much  later,when/if HE prompts, then He may direct you to turn to a specific Bible passage which affirm YOU, often encourage YOU, plus give YOU much needed strength, assurance or even confirmation and guidance.

In closing: for todays’ Renewing of The Mind Assignment:
Mediate upon (dwell repeatedly upon, pause to consider what it really truly means, mutter it out loud, remember it throughout the day, etc), And read in context using an online Bible, such as Bible Gateway www.biblegateway.com or Blue Letter Bible. www.blueletterbible.org
DANIEL 2:28 “There is a God in heaven who reveals SECRETS”
AMOS 3:7 “God does nothing unless He first tells His servants, the prophets.”

OUR NEXT BLOG will be Part one of two on Prophetic Pioneering True Prophet, Priest and Anointed King: David’s Psalm 138.

DON’T EVER LET THEM SEE YOU SWEAT”

A Word for the Wise Lamp Stand Leader
(C) 2013 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved under international law.

“ But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord GOD:

They shall enter into my sanctuary, and they shall come near to my table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep my charge.

And it shall come to pass, [that] when they enter in at the gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments; and no wool shall come upon them, whiles they minister in the gates of the inner court, and within.

They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves  with any thing that causeth sweat.

Eze. 44:15-18

By refusing to take a personal Sabbath rest, apart from ministry, and/or by  resisting God’s direction  to cast all of our cares, burdens and worries onto Him, we leaders may not realize it, but we can give off the strong unpleasant perfume of ministry sweat.

Through continual overworking, remaining in overdrive, a Christian leader, pastor, can  emanate  bad VIBES which may  give off the false impression that he/she does not really value Father’s Children.

Without  knowing that this happens, running ourselves too ragged may make us appear to others as not sincere. And even  though we truly place value on each one,  by our being unwilling to obey God in taking a Sabbath break completely away, the ministry tiredness and SWEAT builds up and becomes too noticeable. It may be even more highly noticeable  at home with our families.

Lest we forget:Wasn’t our  original true leadership born in those long,  deep times of prayer and seeking God? If that is so, then  how can any of us ever trick ourselves into  believing that God forsakes these long, lengthy,   All Alone Times with Him,  once our ministry starts to expand and prosper?

By over working resembling automatons, we loose that spontaneous childlike creative ministry joy. Running from business meeting to business meeting to appointment, we find that our lives gradually from one born out of our personal RELATIONSHIP with Father God, into one that is more us  ACHIEVING and automatically PERFORMING OUR OWN MINISTRY .

This starts to spill over into our private lives. Once we ever start to believe in ourselves more than we rely on the Father, it starts to suck us dry from our insides to our outsides. If we do not allow God to keep us in touch with our own human emotions, we eventually  grow cold and compassionless.

Our deep wells of God’s tender mercy, His flowing empathy which is why God’s people(not to omit our spouses and loved ones)  are drawn in the first place. And without GOD’S refreshing source of emotional reserves, each one of us could wind up feeling  drained and emotionally, spiritually  dry or even dangerously depleted. …. so that is why each one of us NEED to practice a Sabbath apart from “our” pastoral, leadership ministry.

If we do not follow God’s command (Isaiah 55, Isaiah 58)  to take Sabbath time off to recreate, go to conferences, take a cell phone free, time away real vacation… and also devote ourselves to spending much time  with ( only) HIM in the Secret Place, then those up close to us will start to SEE US BEING TO SWEAT.

The longer we allow ourselves to run ragged, the more the SEEING will turn into SMELLING THE SWEAT.

Rather than radiating the pleasant sweet perfume of the joy, patience, favor and fragrance of the Lord. we could all  wind up emanating the negative style of leadership /ministry STINKY SWEAT: brusqueness, condescending  impatience, increasing irritability,  or an completely exhausted aloof indifference to those God has placed around us.

Worse yet, a growing casual complacency to SIN. Soon we are in the HALT Leadership Condition; HUNGRY, ANGRY, LONELY or TIRED..and then( just like in Luke,  when Jesus was exhausted,  tired after fasting 40 days)..the Devil arrives on the scene with  offers of fast and easy  BIG temptations!!

In Ezekiel 44,  God directed the Old Testament priests to wear only garments of linen which ‘breathed” and did not retain,(which would then give off the odor of)  human sweat.

Likewise, if  we do not schedule times away in our own busy schedules to  BREATHE  and to truly  be REFRESHED,   then the air around us will be permeated with  strong unpleasant odor (or some might call them, the  strong negative VIBES) of personal and ministerial sweat.

Let us heed God’s admonition found  in  Song of Solomon to ,

”COME AWAY, MY BELOVED.”

Here are words from an  old song:

“Breathe upon me, wind of God
 Breathe up me, Spirit of the Lord

Make me hear the melodies of heaven…”

Leader: Be A Warrior of God’s Rest

bonar

Good AM. 
Recently I have been looking  through the old archives and found another reminder to CAST ALL OF OUR CARES UPON THE LORD…and to turn into WARRIOR of HIS REST, as opposed to a WORRIER!

I submit this to you for selah purposes.
God’s Blessings!

Dr. Taveau D’Arcy

BE A WARRIOR OF GOD’S REST

© 2003 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved

The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit thou at my right hand until

I make your enemies your foot stool.’” Psalm 110:1


The biggest protection against fear and stress is to learn to war with GOD’S REST.

 Jesus wants to preserve our lives (literally!)  by activating His supernatural protective insulation: “the peace that “passes all understanding and guards our HEART and MIND in Christ Jesus.”

Fear is an active force. Fear is “False Evidence Appearing Real” yet our bodies are human and respond when stress occurs it exerts spiritual and emotional pressure. Long term stress can cause depression or exhaustion. Pressures are applied by satan to distract and to stop a leader from fulfilling his/her goals. Long times of stress or fear apply abnormal pressure on our immune systems and may trigger health problems.

How can a saint remain unaffected by Fear (‘FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL’)? We must truly enter a supernatural REST in the Holy Spirit.   Each of us must ABIDE in the VINE continually. We must continually examine our own hearts to see whether we have truly cast all of 1) CARES 2) FEARS 3) DOUBTS 4) ANXIETIES and 5) UNBELIEF onto Him. Then we must allow them to there.  Cares and doubts are SNEAKY. They keep us out of His Secret Place.  They BLOCK the voice of the GOOD SHEPHERD “who gives LIFE to His sheep.”

We must understand the power released by the Holy Spirit is to protect us. Each one of us needs to laugh the laugh of faith and have joy in His Spirit especially when confronted daily by all the sober things that make us constrict with tension.

  As leaders, we must rearrange our ministry schedules and even shed our dignity at times in order to completely relax in the Spirit of God.   Each of us must learn how to not “take on” the cares of the ministry.

Here are the principles of warring by being restful. First, we must remember that it is the DEVIL, our Adversary, who brings all ‘false evidences appearing real.’ He is out to ruin our lives, steal our joy, and make our daily lives MISERABLE. He wants us to die early so we can’t fulfill God’s plan for our lives.

Worries and cares will remain a continual part of our lives, however, once you take a stand to become a warrior of REST….you understand that NOT RECEIVING those worry spirits are your way of defeating satan’s forces and getting REVENGE on his  attempts to rob from you and make your every day life MISERABLE.

 Stay submitted unto God, resist the devil’s forces, take a forceful, faith filled STAND and just simply refuse to worry. Start to dance, leap around and sing praises. Become “spiritually violent.”

Then the supernatural peace of God will come and “guard your heart and mind.”

Be of GOOD COURAGE and be a WARRIOR OF REST!

IN THE KINGDOM MARKETPLACE: Speaking Up VS Shutting Up

images-1

 

Blessings Dear Reader!

Acts 10:38 teaches that the Messiah, Jesus Christ, “went about doing GOOD, healing all who were oppressed by the devil.”

And much of the world  accepts that a gentle baby was born,and as long as we represent Him as continually being “meek and mild” NOBODY seems to ever get upset.

And NOW A DAYS this even includes “Christ follower believers ” and also  certain pastor leader entire groups of senior pioneering/apostolic leadership.( Significant Selah)

However, MANY readers, and also hopefully this writer,  are perceptive and DISCERNING.  We actually take ownership that Jesus Christ actually GREW UP and faced many CHALLENGES. And that He was not always the “Sweet Baby Jesus.”

Jesus also grew up, hit his thumb on some days in his carpenter shop. He had do deal with all of his 4-5 siblings, perhaps the death of his earthly father, and then be clearly AWARE that all around the tiny confines of His own region, that as a growing senior pioneering minister, that He was being gossiped about all around.

And there were Jesus happy, loving, peaceful normal (earthly) days but there were His surely MANY days of perceiving that He was accused, deemed by the religious community as needing to be WATCHED due to being SUSPECT.

JESUS also was a true Prophet’s Apostolic SEER PERCEIVER non religious PROPHET, who could “discern the thoughts and the intentions of (all) men’s human hearts.”

And of course, the Accuser, and the surely ENORMOUS spiritual warfare alone was often such that the earthly,  normal human pastors, prophet, 5 fold office, may have been even permanently  distracted, dramatically affected so as to be left powerless and emotionally/physically, financially, personally, even DESTROYED.

However, Christ Jesus was not confined by earthly human thinking: rather JESUS discerned and perceived the many REALMS of life in both the natural and the supernatural.

He also realized His ongoing big need  to prioritize FIRST LOVE ongoing quiet time relationship periods ALL ALONE with His Chief Apostolic Creator, Supernatural Father.

And daily He had to seek time apart in prayer, surely asking His Father, on how He was supposed to handle each one of them.

we also find Him on occasion entering into the temple and in an act of righteous anger, rebukes the priest and by tossing over the temple money maker’s fine tables, also the Big Legalistic Business System.

And with MOST modern day Christ Followers understanding that one of the main  Jesus practices was /is “turning the other cheek.”

So WHEN is one supposed to RISE UP and TAKE A RIGHTEOUS STAND and when is one supposed to TURN THE OTHER CHEEK and immediately,enduringly, unconditionally , truly FORGIVE?

Many years back I walked through my local grocery store. There on a book rack was a Christian couples book with the interesting (to ME Selah) title, “When to SPEAK UP and When to SHUT UP.” And I was so captivated by the book title alone I purchased it for about $3.95, yet could not ever get into reading it, but have repeatedly used that amazing title in SELAH ministry and personal realistic thought.

When recently repeatedly encountering grass roots pioneering very small modern day (supposedly mature Christ Following) Temple Pioneers, and  3-5 times finding that now days many of God’s own people cannot discern the difference between asking someone to go help you confront a deceptive, fellow pioneering leader, and will label the one who has had a valuable ministry possession removed from their premises, but then hides and ducks to avoid returning it (a digital piano, replacement value now $1500.) yet instead gets labeled “you have UNFORGIVENESS” and “baggage” SIMPLY for contacting their senior ministry fellowship oversight to ask them to go with you to help Matthew 18:15-18 BIBLE UP FRONT CONFRONT.

The utter shocking fact was that then the OVER SIGHT also duck, hid and even used their group power to put up a block so that the NON ACCUSATIVE but Bible wholly yielded fellow peer, who was not going to chastise, be overly emotional (!!) but realistically stand up, abide by God’s Holy Word and follow IT’S Protocol. Which, in implementing apostolic Bible up front confrontation would be also holding the senior leader perpetrator personally ACCOUNTABLE.

From the writer’s past in depth, many decades in dealing with senior pastor’s and fellow senior ministers, in other parts of the country, this was always an understood, accurately discerned mature PRACTICE.

Yet as the writer discovered, in at least SOME regions, there is so much PC polite political correctness among pioneering MINISTRY that it strongly appears that at least a few (?) pastors, ministers, are now avoiding ANY Bible leader practice that is NOT “happy, sweet Baby Jesus” and “winds up with ME getting “Blessed!”

So the writer has often remembered 1) Sweet Loving Baby Jesus in the Manger whom each of us realized would grow up to advise each of us to “forgive unconditionally” and “Turn the Other Cheek.” 2) Jesus up front confronting the temple money big religious System” by tossing over it’s money maker tables.

Hence: WHEN does each reader and always this writer, resemble CHRIST as we face trying, even hard to discern HOW TO ACT, what God would have us truly DO, apostolic TIMES?

Thus accepting, non emotional, writer, was recalls the TITLE of that book and asked the Heavenly Father for clear direction.

WHEN to RISE UP and non accusatively SPEAK UP and practice 1) Matthew 18:15-20 Bible Up Front Confrontation / when to assert one’s self to take a MORAL LEADERSHIP (unpopular) STAND /When is it ok to display what the Bible terms, “righteous anger”

OR 2) How do we know when we are to accept, to TURN THE OTHER CHEEK, to lay really low, and in humility, apostolic meekness, simply accept that God will take vengeance, perform ultimate JUSTICE: but in HIS time.

BIBLE VERSES
Bible Confrontation: Matthew 18:15-18

Turn the Other Cheek:

Righteous anger

What is SIN NOT

What is being accused of being UNFORGIVENESS when you ask another leader to go with you to UP FRONT CONFRONT but they judge you as “having unforgiveness” “acting mean” “having unrighteous big anger?”

WE intentionally allow YOU to hear from the Lord…and close with all of this OPEN ENDED…
Mighty Blessings!

Extreme Business Times: Extreme Encouragement

earth_6-7

REPOST FROM 2/27/13

(C)2013 Taveau D’Arcy all copyrights reserved

Good AM!

First: In response to the Leader Question we posted on the last blog:

IS it more important to SUCCEED or to OBEY?

1. We believe in the light  of Eternity, and for simply being pleasing God each and every day (in an Enoch fellowship 24/7/365 Style) that it IS more important to follow every gentle, true, Bible confirmed leading of the Lord RATHER than to primarily focus on personal targets of Ministry, pioneering Business SUCCESS.**

** Apostolic Leader: Life’s Over All Biggest Reward, Life Long Pay Off will eventually be, when YOU die and stand ALL ALONE, face to FACE with God, and He looks directly at YOU and says,”Well done, Good and Faithful Servant ENTER into the JOY of the Lord.” (…..or not….)

2. Looking UPWARD (Psalm 121 Daily Walk Style) ) means that YOU view God as  your ultimate PROVISION, TIMELESS HELP and SOURCE OF STRENGTH. And He is the Care Carrier, aka the Burden Bearer..daily, hourly, moment by moment… IF we LET Him….

To read PSALM 121 “I will lift up MY eyes to the hills from whence comes MY help..etc: online: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+121&version=KJV:

3. By contrast, continually looking DOWN (meaning at the earthly real hard realm)  at goals, business, MONEY can get you gradually sucked into focusing more on “IT” than Living Life.

Supreme Example; When YOU are in (continual, planting)  NEED of income, provision or resources (aka mammon) YOU may very slowly yield to the WORLD SYSTEM BIG PRESSURES, then find that YOUR ONCE FIRED UP true pioneering FAITH is boney weary, feeling depleted or non existent.

This is simply because we have fed our apostolic business fine tuned minds much MORE on the way the WORLD sees all fo these types of REAL LIFE business /ministry things.

Moving every so slowly,similar to a giant iceberg, our faith gets encased in fear, dread, apprehension, and stress.

Then it becomes ME Centered: overly dependent upon how things APPEAR to be progressing by human,earthly, apostolic modern, business standards.

THUS, if we put our eyes on the WORLD (the Psalm 121 Big Hills) and encounter EXTREME disappointments, EXTREME life  HARDSHIPS, many DIFFICULTIES, but still refuse to YIELD to God’s Word to “Come unto ME all who are heavy laden…”

..Then we will super slowly become cold, hard and rigidly mean, TOO TOUGH over a period of many years. All of this happens as we stop looking UPWARD (toward the Lord) and slowly sink into looking AROUND US, which is actually way DOWN  into  ME, MYSELF and “Only Our Group Matters” False Concept.

And all of this too often produces  a formal business persona which never removes itself as we enter into our own private houses and begin to relate to, companion along with, our precious spouses and children.

4. The hardest Lazarus Grave Clothes Ministry/Business /Leader, Overly World Conscious Mindset is the by product, the rigid, absolute, supreme, fear based fruit, of what this writer calls the “Pulling MYSELF UP by MY Own Thinking, SELF reliant, overly strong willed, although perhaps  brilliant / innovative: Made Up Unyielding Mind.”

So, while we DO NEED BIG GOALS, PLANS and LIFE LIVING MONEY,we each should make it OUR BIG Goal is to NEVER let “IT” (as in over much PREOCCUPATION with money, cares, overwork, big fear etc) draw YOU down deep into IT..which then allows what the Bible calls “the cares of this world” to draw you down into the muck and deep mires of fear, anxiety, over work, never able to UNWIND and TRULY live Life. (I.E. Technically OPPRESSED)

5. Although this writer never advocates the use of Bible, faith, pioneering FORMULAS or micro wave ,fast food placebo ANSWERS, the Bible does contain what we believe holds a TRIED and TRUE REAL ANSWER for each and every tiny or even ENORMOUS DIRE need:

THE WRITER OFFERS EXTREME HOPE: SELAH
“THE WEDDING AT CANA APOSTOLIC LIFE PRINCIPAL

READ THE STORY OF JESUS TURNING WATER INTO NEW WINE in John  2:

“The next day there was a wedding celebration in the village of Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there,and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. 

 The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus’ mother told him, “They have no more wine.”

“Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied.“My time has not yet come.”

 But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.

 Standing nearby were six stone water jars, used for Jewish ceremonial washing. Each could hold twenty to thirty gallons.

 Jesus told the servants, “Fill the jars with water.”

 When the jars had been filled,  he said,“Now dip some out, and take it to the master of ceremonies.” 

So the servants followed his instructions.

When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over. 

 “A host always serves the best wine first,” he said. “Then, when everyone has had a lot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have kept the best until now!”

 This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was the first time Jesus revealed his glory. And his disciples believed in him.”

SUMMARY: Verse 5 Explains what is KEY  and unlocks BLESSED TRUE SUCCESS: ongoing, apostolic, pioneering, business, God ordered, Holy Spirit directed, one day in, one day out, one week in, one week out, one year in, one year out OBEDIENCE.

Besides, if you Keep It Simple: all along the way EACH and EVERY DAY YOU will experience much more JOY in your JOURNEY!

So take a Key Life Principle, but do it daily (even hourly during hectic, pressure filled, desert times): WHATEVER He says TO YOU (meaning :specifically,directionally) be like Nike and JUST DO IT!

Amazing true prosperity and pioneering blessings!

Sincerely,

Dr. Taveau D’Arcy

Greetings.
I was just about to pen a brand new BLOG today..but if I had to write a new one..it would simply re-state the same things which we are (just now) today hearing…similarly to the LAST YEAR  (2013) of  Kingdom Business Word.

So while WE are in a apostolic NEW PLACE (surely akin to each of YOURS)

we will need to hear, to heed the Lord and allow Him to ongoing REVEAL to us..so for now, I would advise

Hearing

Humbly

Apostolic Psalm 138 (see old 2-3 blogs on this site re Pioneering King David’s Prophetic Kingdom Business)

and the blogged WORD just prior to this one.

SO “day by day” by “His Day” is an ONGOING REVEALING, UNFOLDING, UNFURLING by God’s free (non legalistic) GIFT of Holy Spirit (downloaded as NEEDED) wisdom /revelation.

Reminder:

Amos 3:7 “God does nothing without first telling his SERVANTS, his prophets.”

Daniel 2:28 “There is a God in heaven who reveals secrets.”

PS Why not take a DAY to stay before the Lord and Sabbath, SELAH?

May God’s Mighty Pioneering Blessings Overtake each of YOU!

1. MEANINGFUL BIBLE VOCABULARY

apostle*, chief apostle, doing the work of an apostle, and walking in the office of the apostle.**

*Note: the reason we put no capital letters, as they are servant offices as described throughout all of the apostle Paul’s writings, UNLESS they start a sentence, then they would use a capital letter) Also, Paul  did the same for bishop, pastor, teacher, evangelist, prophet.

**Note:  We can only fit in a certain amount of a tremendous load of existing information. SO please do not grade me for leaving out at least some…or many.

 2. HOW WE INTERPRET BIBLE VOCABULARY 

THE VOCABULARY:

Office of the chief apostle

An apostle

Degrees of leader calls, chief of apostle: Pauline Types, Well Known, National, World Wide “chief doctrine originators, local pioneering church leader, feeding the poor, media, other, hidden and  not known widely,

Doing the Work of an apostle

Being on an apostolic pioneering team of an chief apostolic senior ministry

Being wed to, kin to the one who is the head,  called senior pioneering chief apostle

WE CANNOT FIT ALL OF THE ABOVE IN, but it clues you in on where we are headed. And we’ll do much more in depth on www.taveauleader.com after Patricianism, OT Levitical Patriarchism/Matriarchism and Boanerge Popular Culture Modern Ministry

 3. IFFM/DFW LEADER ONLINE FELLOWSHIP /DR TAVEAU D’ARCY LEADERSHIP MINISTRIES MAIN APOSTOLIC TEACHING POINTS:

IFFM POINT: the  use of the words  “Apostle VS apostle”

  • IFFM refers to the first original Jesus Christ hand picked, appointed Chief Apostles and Apostle Paul as “Capital A” Apostles, Chief Apostles, but all following them are denoted as servant pioneering leader apostles, using a lower case “a” as Apostle Paul used when describing himself, listing the 5 fold offices, and for bishop, in all of his apostolic New Testament writings. (The only exception was if the word APOSTLE began a sentence, thus a capital letter would be  required and appropriate).
  • IFFM POINT: Doing the “work of an apostle” VS “walking in the office of an apostle” Doing the work of an ‘apostle:” any true Christ follower may feel God directing them to plant a business or ministry, other work, but this does not mean that they “walk in the office” as that is a life long endurance, repeated leader sifting God called true servant office.
  • IFFM POINT: Describe the nature of an office of the apostle?: An office of an apostle implies a God called/commissioned Holy Spirit true servant, pioneering spiritual work founder, trailblazer, colony chief planter who is Commanded by God to a yielded true servant, a servant office, which the Bible describes as a pioneering “sent messenger” “off scouring of the world” who has signs and wonders displaying (many of them need many miracles to win the sin sodden but also to survive great peril.
  • IFFM POINT: Describe the relationship of a true apostle with        the Lord: A true chief apostle maintains an ongoing First Love Lampstand Lifestyle set apart unto hearing, obeying the Lord. He/she must remain extremely close to know precisely what the Lord is saying to do or to not do. And during this set apart, deeply committed important prayer time, the  Holy Spirit imparts to them, directs them and gives them  Holy Spirit (first hand: organic) without mixture divine revelation.
  • IFFM POINT: A true chief apostle, who is also a true Christian disciple, is more concerned with helping to advance, to build,  the Kingdom of God, rather then his/her own senior ministry. True chief senior apostles are Holy Spirit directed “apostolic team players” who will work together in Ephesian 4 manner, across racial, cultural and denominational dividing lines for the sake of God’s Kingdom Unity True Organic Community.
  • IFFM POINT: As the sincere, “chief apostolic spiritual  doctrine” builds God’s kingdom, makes new pioneering leaders, and new disciples. ); there are also miracles, prophetic signs and real wonders, even new forms of worship music /Bible teaching training emphasis, all of which reveal another glimpse, wise deep insight, into Maker God’s amazing enormous Nature,even akin to His Personality. Pioneering servant, pure hearted albeit, chief apostles will be truly humble and understand that God is their only true source of help, comfort, strength, life satisfaction and ultimately all provision.
  • And as each  one remains close to Father and purposely maintains a pure hearted, non self seeking, ongoing First Love relationship apart with the Lord, God will imbue them with Holy Spirit supernatural wisdom, refreshing revelation and supplied might and power.
  • Thus the chief apostle will be given God’s great grace to bless many others by birthing brand new 5 fold office works, fresh fire for the weary, many other subsequent  apostolic ministry true fruits:, new worship, Christian pioneering media, nonlegalistic new churches and in prophetic kingdom business,etc
  • IFFM POINT: In House Ministry: Even if its’ a close relative, , a spouse or a fellow co-laborer of a true chief apostle will not know the depth of  or the kind of revelation that the Lord has privately whispered into the spiritual /prophetic listening ear of the organic, chief apostle,  However, each of the second tier 3rd tier mature leaders, including the spouse, MAY be a main “Chief Apostolic Ministry Pioneering Team.”
  • IFFM POINT:  This is why mixture may be added, by media,hearsay, presumption, assumption and leader winds of doctrine, in all second,third and so forth, ongoing subsequent Bible training school, Bible college, pastors fellowship ongoing generations.
  • IFFM POINT: IFFM encourages all pastors, 5 fold ministers, and lay to be like pioneering Apostle Paul who praised the “Noble Bereans” for checking out even HIS OWN apostolic leader doctrines. IFFM submits that each reader may do so with ANY of our IFFM leader /in House doctrines (but in humble, James 3;17/Ephesians 5:21 respectful, mature fashion. And we do the same with  all other leader/peer doctrines)
  • IFFM POINT: IFFM definition of an “apostle” – a sent messenger but one MAY or MAY NOT BE NOT  (not yet)  been “molded, fashioned over due time” into the Chief Apostle Overseer true OFFICE.
  • apostle in the Bible: signs and wonders, off scouring of the world, sent messenger

    WELL KNOWN AND FAMOUS CHIEF APOSTLES, OBSCURE CHIEF APOSTLES IFFM POINT: Today, there may be chief apostles who are well known, world wide, famous but also chief apostles who are not widely well known but all are equal and valuable in the sight of Lord. Where there is a national senior pioneering call, most of the times, it births a new denomination,  worship movement, Bible teaching  and subsequent Bible colleges, seminaries, leader training books, CDs, and mass media. It may also produce new art, original music.’
  • IFFM POINT: But God is never One who compares any of His children, ministry leaders /chief apostles or not. That is only found in the  human mortal soul. Thus whether God downloads mighty deposits of fresh wisdom, many new ideas and Bible teaching, worship arts: He does not compare what He gives to well known Bible teacher, pastor, TV minister to what He also gives to an never going to be well known, humble sent person in a foreign land or deep in a poverty stricken, but affirming, hovel.
  • The Lord gives granted grace to all, but He never regards ONE as More Valuable  who is well known and “big” verus one in a small regional landlocked area, who will probably be there all of their life. The reason “God has no respecter of persons.” Only we humans can feel it too often from our popular culture numbers oriented vain, hurried culture.
  • IFFM POINT: God first gives his servants the prophets and the apostles FIRST HAND “ORGANIC” revealed wisdom, new understanding, called “revelation. “
  • This gives ideas and energy to the chief called ‘sent messenger” and creates big leader vision, which gives their life purpose ,deeper depth, and for most, fulfillment, to pioneer /found Holy Spirit true movements, also some known as denominations. Also churches, seminaries, TV station, local churches, other works.
  • IFFM POINT: Famous or hidden, both kinds of caring chief apostles are equal, valuable,but not all are famous nor should they need to be to justify them as valid, extremely important to the LORD and His mysterious over all Kingdom Plan. God Holy Spirit wants every level of being to have a ‘sent messenger”  on Kingdom assignment,to make sure ALL of the gaps are filled at every single level of human existence, to be able to send God’s love to every human individual. PART 3 IFFM POINTTHE OFFICE OF AN APOSTLE
  • THE BIG QUESTION:IS A PERSON DOING THE “WORK OF AN APOSTLE” OR DO THEY “WALK IN THE OFFICE OF THE APOSTLE?”IFFM POINT: God calls/commissions  true born again, submitted Christ following servant. He commissions them  Heart to Hearing Heart :to go out, to minister. But first  He specifically imparts to each one of them, then reveals (shows ) to them every inch of the way on what to do, how to do it, where to do it and whom to first pick to co-labor with. God also shows the founding chief apostle (be they regarded as great or very small) whom God is sending them directly to: to save, heal, train, build and plant “Spiritual Colony.”
  • IFFM POINT: While it is an honor to be picked by the Lord for such a high spiritual calling, yet the Apostle Paul, a mature, humble, chief apostle’s apostle himself, dedicated his life to fully knowing the LORD rather than about “achieving, building his apostolic ministry work.
  • IFFM POINT:  the Bible describes as a pioneering “sent messenger” “off scouring of the world” who has signs and wonders displaying (many of them need many miracles to win the sin sodden…. but also to personally and directly survive great peril.)
  • IFFM POINT: There is no One Size Fits All in pioneering apostolic ministry. The Father uses a great number of “subtypes, even prototypes and kinds”
  • IFFM POINT: Noone other than GOD ALONE truly calls the senior chief ministry office of an apostle.The Lord calls, hand picks, the person to which He chooses, based on His great grace, to then reveal bits of Bible wisdom, insight, understanding which is fresh to complement,potentially ad to, but never ever to compete with, prior, previous Bible generations of key organic  Holy Spirit revelation.
  • The office of a chief apostle is called, not achieved from Bible teaching, going to Bible college or performing a formula.
  • IFFM POINT: Doing the work of an ‘apostle:” any true Christ follower may feel God directing them to plant a business or ministry, other work but this does not mean that they “walk in the office” as that is a life long endurance, repeated leader sifting God called true servant office.
  • IFFM POINT: a pioneering founder, chief apostle, of a movement, TV station, etc, national/worldwide, Holy Spirit movement, national revival, worship move, will be used by the Lord is just as valid as the one who begins a system of education for poor, builds a network to care for the dying or homeless or has a ministry behind the scenes.
  • IFFM POINT: The key in being a servant pioneer ANY  TYPE OF PERSON is to keep a “single mind’s  eye” ONLY and CONTINUALLY, ALWAYS upon  the Lord. Other than that, it might tempt you to get into “accuser”  trouble.
  • IFFM POINT: the office of the chief apostle is SUPER SLOW, FINE TUNING and SIFTING, WINNOWING….. but that’s ALL for this page.

    apostle*, chief apostle, doing the work of an apostle, and walking in the office of the apostle.**

    *Note: the reason we put no capital letters, as they are servant offices as described throughout all of the apostle Paul’s writings, UNLESS they start a sentence, then they would use a capital letter) Also, Paul  did the same for bishop, pastor, teacher, evangelist, prophet.

     3. IFFM/DFW LEADER ONLINE FELLOWSHIP /DR TAVEAU D’ARCY LEADERSHIP MINISTRIES MAIN APOSTOLIC TEACHING POINTS:

    IFFM POINT: the  use of the words  “Apostle VS apostle”

    • IFFM refers to the first original Jesus Christ hand picked, appointed Chief Apostles and Apostle Paul as “Capital A” Apostles, Chief Apostles, but all following them are denoted as servant pioneering leader apostles, using a lower case “a” as Apostle Paul used when describing himself, listing the 5 fold offices, and for bishop, in all of his apostolic New Testament writings. (The only exception was if the word APOSTLE began a sentence, thus a capital letter would be  required and appropriate).
    • IFFM POINT: Doing the “work of an apostle” VS “walking in the office of an apostle” Doing the work of an ‘apostle:” any true Christ follower may feel God directing them to plant a business or ministry, other work, but this does not mean that they “walk in the office” as that is a life long endurance, repeated leader sifting God called true servant office.
    • IFFM POINT: Describe the nature of an office of the apostle?: An office of an apostle implies a God called/commissioned Holy Spirit true servant, pioneering spiritual work founder, trailblazer, colony chief planter who is Commanded by God to a yielded true servant, a servant office, which the Bible describes as a pioneering “sent messenger” “off scouring of the world” who has signs and wonders displaying (many of them need many miracles to win the sin sodden but also to survive great peril.
    • IFFM POINT: Describe the relationship of a true apostle with        the Lord: A true chief apostle maintains an ongoing First Love Lampstand Lifestyle set apart unto hearing, obeying the Lord. He/she must remain extremely close to know precisely what the Lord is saying to do or to not do. And during this set apart, deeply committed important prayer time, the  Holy Spirit imparts to them, directs them and gives them  Holy Spirit (first hand: organic) without mixture divine revelation.
    • IFFM POINT: A true chief apostle, who is also a true Christian disciple, is more concerned with helping to advance, to build,  the Kingdom of God, rather then his/her own senior ministry. True chief senior apostles are Holy Spirit directed “apostolic team players” who will work together in Ephesian 4 manner, across racial, cultural and denominational dividing lines for the sake of God’s Kingdom Unity True Organic Community.
    • IFFM POINT: As the sincere, “chief apostolic spiritual  doctrine” builds God’s kingdom, makes new pioneering leaders, and new disciples. ); there are also miracles, prophetic signs and real wonders, even new forms of worship music /Bible teaching training emphasis, all of which reveal another glimpse, wise deep insight, into Maker God’s amazing enormous Nature,even akin to His Personality. Pioneering servant, pure hearted albeit, chief apostles will be truly humble and understand that God is their only true source of help, comfort, strength, life satisfaction and ultimately all provision.
    • And as each  one remains close to Father and purposely maintains a pure hearted, non self seeking, ongoing First Love relationship apart with the Lord, God will imbue them with Holy Spirit supernatural wisdom, refreshing revelation and supplied might and power.
    • Thus the chief apostle will be given God’s great grace to bless many others by birthing brand new 5 fold office works, fresh fire for the weary, many other subsequent  apostolic ministry true fruits:, new worship, Christian pioneering media, nonlegalistic new churches and in prophetic kingdom business,etc
    • IFFM POINT: In House Ministry: Even if its’ a close relative, , a spouse or a fellow co-laborer of a true chief apostle will not know the depth of  or the kind of revelation that the Lord has privately whispered into the spiritual /prophetic listening ear of the organic, chief apostle,  However, each of the second tier 3rd tier mature leaders, including the spouse, MAY be a main “Chief Apostolic Ministry Pioneering Team.”
    • IFFM POINT:  This is why mixture may be added, by media,hearsay, presumption, assumption and leader winds of doctrine, in all second,third and so forth, ongoing subsequent Bible training school, Bible college, pastors fellowship ongoing generations.
    • IFFM POINT: IFFM encourages all pastors, 5 fold ministers, and lay to be like pioneering Apostle Paul who praised the “Noble Bereans” for checking out even HIS OWN apostolic leader doctrines. IFFM submits that each reader may do so with ANY of our IFFM leader /in House doctrines (but in humble, James 3;17/Ephesians 5:21 respectful, mature fashion. And we do the same with  all other leader/peer doctrines)
    • IFFM POINT: IFFM definition of an “apostle” – a sent messenger but one MAY or MAY NOT BE NOT  (not yet)  been “molded, fashioned over due time” into the Chief Apostle Overseer true OFFICE.
    • apostle in the Bible: signs and wonders, off scouring of the world, sent messenger

SECOND SERIES REPEAT: Psalm 138 PART 5

bonar

(C) 2013 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved

GREETINGS,
We will first share the complete PSALM 138, which was penned by the senior pioneering real, taking dominion King, who was also a writer, prophetic seer, warrior and priest as unto the Lord.

NOW: PSALM 138  APOSTOLIC LEADER BIBLE STUDY PART 5

FIRST: Please read the entire Psalm 138 (but we only discuss verse 5 on this posting)

1.I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.

All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.

Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.

Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

With that finished, let’s get on to verse 5. But if YOU did not get a chance to read the previous blog about Verse 4, as this one pertains to that one, it may be good thing to do first, before you read any more.

PSALM 138:5, “ Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.”

“Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord.

Again this tells us that once the sober, realistic, pragmatic and logical pioneering senior minister /or or prophetic King (or Queen) “perceive,discern “(meaning they RECEIVE, OR GET) a “word from the Lord, which pertains to their own unique set of (even dire) circumstances, that God’s WORD will penetrate the hopelessness, the weariness and the deep personal doubt and major frustration of what they are aware of: back in their business or ministry life or either in their private, personal, real life.

As we mentioned in VERSE 4 Study (on the previous entry) the tired, very aware of what needs to be resolved, king, queen, who is often  “multimantled, multigifted and multifaceted” may have MANY levels of attack all happening, even at once.

So when GOD is able, with His fine tuned Holy Spirit precision, to divide between what is hay and chaff, that which is fair and unjust and that which is so delicate, it resembles the soft place “between the mortal soul and the marrow” then THIS “EUREKA, I’VE GOT IT” (meaning perceiving that through the SPIRITUAL EYES of applied FAITH” that God has responded.

Even in the midst of OUR uncertainty,with a spiritually whispered “YES.”  The power of God  can immediately REMOVE the big tension, alleviate even giant pressures, and begin to slowly DECOMPRESS what had been before, a somber, stoic, ,acutely pressured prophetic senior minister, or pioneering business person.

Perhaps, as Verse 5 implies,with all of the pressures now alleviated, for at least the moment, the King feels the light peace and carefree nature of a kid at heart. He/she may very well burst into a song of joy or praise to God or even a spontaneous one, that celebrates a great victory.

Surely, the Psalmist pioneering King David had done just that, at many different times.

YET, when we read the entire verse, we notice something deeper.
While it DOES say that the prophetic, ruling King, ruling Queen, will “sing” it reveals much more.

“they shall sing in the ways of the Lord”

Admittedly, after God bringing me through VERY MANY acute, very long enduring repeated TESTS and exceeding difficult (MANY) personal and ministry near death, not one bit positive situations, when I reflect, I can see how the Lord used EACH SIGNIFICANT ONE to  cause me to turn toward HIM and thus get to know now just ABOUT Him.

With His Eternal Overview Leader Viewpoint, the Heavenly Father understands just what HE truly wants as well as what WE truly require: to fully get WITH HIM, rather than remaining in the shallow waters  of an Outer Court surface underlying relationship.

And, the apostolic writer, having been in repeated (MANY)  apostolic jail lengthy season for long seasons, has found that HE used them for fine tuning, for polishing, and for setting me FREE while (rather ironically)held back, apostolically /humanly WITHSTOOD, and even while forced to recuperate from warfare, even the Friendly Fire, fellow human accusative variety.

For after EMERGING, in appreciative, amazed, hindsight view, I fully understood how God had freed me further from the manmade Prison House of SELF. And in dying to ones SELF one is granted new power and life of the RISEN LORD and further deeper revelation knowledge of His Own Kingdom.

The Heavenly Father had granted me NEW amazing FREEDOM from (multilevels) of FEAR, most especially of “fearing other men’s faces” and in exchange for the unpleasant leadership Prison Time”  He allowed me the granted GRACE to discern not about HIM, but about His WAYS and for all of my repeatedly DYING TO SELF, He turned it into NEWER, DEEPER, discerned comforted realms of REAL LIFE “He comes to bring life more abundantly.”

“Verily, verily I say unto you, unless a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” John 12:24

And the byproduct of this  slow, leader over all PROCESS is the release of a NEW, Deeper, tougher, wiser deep Leader, who will be able to remain in deep PEACE and REST when faced  with the future problems, untrue persons and pioneering trials.

And this NEW  deep leader will be absolutely FEARLESS come what may: due to this new God allowed “DEPTH” of absolute TRUST,  ACCEPTANCE, PEACE, REST which comes with the Fearless Freedom to  fully ENJOY and  once again begin to FLOURISH.

And in this writer’s experience, God will allow YOU to perceive and discern and once again begin to GROW in a new (spiritually perceived) understanding, that because of being through that, God was simply preparing YOU to live, to feel even BETTER than YOU used to, even before that particular Time ever existed.

Now back to Psalm 138:5:

So along with prophet, priest and King David, this writer would also regard VERSE 5 ““they shall sing in the ways of the Lord” as very well could mean:

The business market place kings, having been in overly much heightened PRESSURE, and over the repeated test of TIME, should they keep their Focus on ETERNITY and regard each  TEST as a “sign” to “Turn More TOWARD The Lord,” ……

…..then they will eventually NOT only gladly SING praises about what the Lord is doing and has actually DONE,but will, with a much deeper Love and mature real appreciation for the WAYS of the LORD( His goodness, His comfort, His abiding JOY and PRESENCE, loving,NON ACCUSATIVE Nature) ….

….and hence, they will ALSO sing as they “sing IN THE WAYS of the Lord” (being intimately, personally reminded of the FAVOR and GOODNESS of the ENDURING, COMFORTING “Being There-ness” father’s NATURE” or “WAYS”)

Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.”

The kings are singing with JOY and appreciative THANKSGIVING due to the fact that, while in the MIDST of their trouble, big stress and amazing hardships, that through the MERCY OF GOD’s “Being There” HE can still allow them, assist them to PERCEIVE and DISCERN  His  Presence, His Peace and His undergirding POWER, even while they are in the middle of the STORM.

The Ruler Kings have asked the Lord for His FAVOR …and HE has COMPLIED. They now detect His Granted Grace and are deeply humbled, appreciative and GLAD.

The Lord has shown His Face down upon them and in the middle of the PRESSURE He has broken through every resistance,ever tough minded abrasive personality and every Personal Ministry warring Strong Hold.

Now, the prophetic, mantled Kingdom Business Market Place Rulers get many reasons to prophesy, to declare and to PERCEIVE the Glory of their GOD.

THE GREAT AMAZING GOD  has SHOWN UP, BROKEN THROUGH and truly PROVIDED.

“Great is the Glory of the LORD!”

(Then, let them all shout AMEN!)
