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

images-1

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!

Reprint: Don’t Ever Let Them See You Sweat

NOTE: Due to the need for many types of leaders to be refreshed, this posting is also posted on several other Dr. T Pioneering Leader blogs.

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!

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!

IFFM USE OF CHIEF APOSTLE, APOSTOLIC 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

 

  • SECOND PART
    IFFM APOSTLE, CHIEF APOSTLE, IN HOUSE DEFINITIONS
    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.

2ND SERIES: PSALM 138 PART 6

BEyO0A7CIAATAXF.jpg-large

(C) 2013 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved

MIGHTY  BLESSINGS TO YOU!

This PSALM 138:6  is finally ready!
Just in case: see what we’ve been so busy working on of late:

DFW LEADER MINISTRY ONLINE FELLOWSHIP.  (www.dfwleaderfellowship.org

FIRST, for persons who have joined us late, please  go back and locate ALL OF THE FIRST 5 PSALM 138 BIBLE STUDY POSTS.

NEXT, to refresh  our memories, the entire King David PSALM 138 entirely. Then we will expound upon VERSE 6.

KING DAVID’S PSALM 138

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.

VERSE 6 EXPOUNDED:

WRITER ASIDE: if any of  PSALM 138   pertains to the apostolic big season that we are in RIGHT NOW, I personally believe it is VERSE 6.

VERSE 6; Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.

“THOUGH THE LORD BE HIGH…”

This conveys that the Lord is an Almighty God who truly has what many today refer to as a “a senior office Over Seer big position. We can understand that GOD is the OVER SEER’S OVER SEER which infers to us, that WE clearly do NOT know it all AND thus we maybe ought to TURN TO HIM to get HIS valuable counsel, supernatural creative wisdom, etc.
AND “THOUGH THE LORD BE HIGH…” implies that  GOD is always observing, accurately watches over US. And due to his High Office, Senior Overseer Management Big Position, God  KNOWS a lot more than WE DO.

(Which maybe can help us to remove a lot of the PRESSURE we take on due to being a head pioneering leader.)

THEREFORE we should HONOR God and quietly meditate upon His high Position….doing so in a manner which demonstrates compliance, genuine, Godly dependency along with a true servant  HUMILITY.

We are in need of God’s FAVOR just now, more than ever. And it is the SECRET to getting AHEAD.

“…YET HE HATH RESPECT FOR THE LOWLY..” 

To clarify: the “lowly” implies (apostolically) “humble” yet does not paint a portrait of a person who is weak, cowardly, deeply insecure,  “poor and pitiful” or some shaky Casper Milquetoast who whimp out when the actions, real problems, applied forces of pressure effect home, business or ministry headship.

God bends His ear down to pay attention to the MEEK,SERVANT PIONEERING PROPHETIC KINGS, who are NOT “afraid or weak.”

A true SERVANT of GOD who is “humble” will not avoid RISING UP and take Bible (nonaccusative) STAND, nor will they shy away from MANNING UP /LEADER WOMANING UP when that is business needed.

TIP: Everyone has a unique personality, DNA, so just ask the LORD to tell YOU what “meekness” “being humble is” according to how He and the Bible,  direct your CONSCIENCE.

And pray that God will let a red flag buzzer go off down inside your heart when YOU re crossing the line from MEEKNESS into either WEAKNESS or TO FORCEFUL.

MEEKNESS does  NOT mean that one has to submit to being a brown nosing, HUMAN PLEASER

NO, God has NO respect for the moral cowards who fall back when life seems to be UNFAIR or who are (HU)MAN PLEASERS who will placate many others just to get ahead…..or  run,duck and cover to AVOID from doing what they know is pleasing to the Lord!

“……BUT THE PROUD HE KNOWS FROM AFAR OFF”

INDEED, God won’t respect SELF PLEASING by pleasing fellow HUMANS rather than being humble and being pleasing to the LORD FIRST.

God will keep a distance from the stubborn proud, even fearful types of persons who Man Please in order to  SELF PROTECTION, because it is based in COMPROMISE and will hurt MANY OTHERS.

Besides, HUMAN /SELF PLEASING are  rooted in superior PRIDE and base FEAR…which are definitely NOT “meek” but “emotionally, morally WEAK.”

ALSO we can  define being “morally weak, overly self preserving, and morally AFRAID” as rooted in PRIDE which is   “low down” rather than in a person acting “humble,Godly lowly.”

SEE: www.adventuresinmanpleasing.net

SOME “weak” leaders use human FORCE to apply pressure to make others conform or obey, to submit to them. SOME of them resort to abusive /controlling fits of rage, use of foul language, even in watching over their private lives (home, marriage, little children).

These types of people  are weak as they do not have the power over their own SELF CONTROL and apparently run FROM seeking the help of God, even though the Bible states that it is FREELY AVAILABLE!

A PROUD PERSON will turn AWAY  from the Lord, and REFUSE to seek the HELP of the LORD, the SELF GOVERNMENT (Galatians 5 fruit of SELF CONTROL) is a person who is PROUD and that brings us to repeat the last   part of VERSE 6, again:

“……BUT THE PROUD HE KNOWS FROM AFAR OFF”

HOW MANY PEOPLE need God’s power to produce new business, find decent jobs, make their sales quota, to raise their ministry finances, to double or triple what they are presently making? (for all the BIBLE Ministry, Business real valid reasons)

VERSE 6 paints  a clear picture of WHOM the Lord will pay close attention to WHEN they CRY OUT TO THE LORD.

IFFM LIFE OVER ALL PRINCIPAL:

HUMAN FEAR PLACES PRESSURE ON THE HUMAN FLESH and “STUFF” MANIFESTS: Spiritual Fruit or Big Fallout (unless we truly submit to God)

STRESS EXAMPLE:  If we get big pressure to perform, come up with the goods, as it were, then due to the FORCE of fear, pressure, we COULD mistakenly go over into what the Bible terms as “FLESH” and instead of turning to GOD for HIS supernatural wisdom, affirming PEACE and problem  solving (non accusative) Big Game Plan….

……we might be tempted to use personality, applied pressure,  striving, ungodly CONTROL, or deceptive, non honorable types of ministry/business things to DOMINATE (maintain OUR OWN HUMAN CONTROL OVER THE MATTER) rather than HUMBLY crying out to the LORD, making a list of all of our BURDENS, FEARS and WORRIES and handing them over to the Lord….

…..while allowing Him, to lead us as we resist the acute pressure while making forward true PROGRESS spiritually taking “God’s Kingdom Dominion.” (add to this prayer warriors, fellowship, praising, etc)

IN CONCLUSION:

MEEKNESS is  supernatural strength to remain COOL under great human leader pressure: OUR OWN MORTAL SOUL REMAINS  UNDER GOD’s (aka SELF ) CONTROL

MEEKNESS is one manifestation of the HUMILITY.

AND PIONEERING LEADER/MINISTRY boldness, and HUMILITY are some KEYS to approaching the Lord.

HUMILITY, according to Psalm 138:6 is a KEY FACTOR getting the Lord to listen to YOUR prayer.

HUMILITY is a major secret in making sure that you are not doing anything that will block, or hinder the FAVOR of the Lord.

MEANING: this is NOT the time to be all wise, OVERLY self confident, OVERLY self /other reliant.

THIS IS A APOSTOLIC LEADER AMOS 3:7 TIME.

Yet it is also a Time of “I must decrease so that HE can increase.”

And though this writer sounds like SHE is promoting PROSPERITY, she IS (with a “Godliness with contentment” IFFM Organic balanced BIble perspective on page of same name www.dfwleaderfellowship.org) yet  prophetic business kingdom marketplace, indeed pioneering senior ministry is NOT SIMPLY /ONLY ABOUT ” all of us being”GOAL ORIENTED for GAINING or WINNING “LEADER STUFF.”

IT IS ALSO  is a Bible Christian calling to completely understand the WAYS, MEANS  which the Heavenly Father wants to provide for us, our families, the things Called for from the Lord and then to save for our children’s children (Proverbs 13:22) ….but then to help HIS END TIME WORKS as well as the LOCAL “LEAST OF THESE” COMMUNITY.

PSALM 138:6 “Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.”

 WHY THE WRITER FULLY BELIEVES THAT PSALM 138 :6 is very applicable to TODAY: 
1. IT AFFIRMS that God has NEW RESOURCES, IDEAS but it is we who must APPROACH HIM to get them from Him, while on HIS terms.
Amos 3:7 “God does nothing unless he first reveals it to His  servants, the prophets.”

2. REASONS WHY? This earthly system is in the middle of birth pangs and  the shaking of all that can be shaken:  the economy, personal finances, families, ministry, etc.

So rather than modeling “When the going gets TOUGH, the tough get GOING.” (which can be a good word when NOT taken to extremes, as it COULD   mean that the  potential leader has turned overly tough, independent, and is now growing APART from the Lord.

Rather let it be, “WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH TURN TO SEEK THE LORD” (which by the way is a sign of a leaders HUMILITY.)

TOO much time away from being in fellowship with the LORD (putting in a plug for a First Love Leader Lifestyle and Lamp stand) will allow YOU to be able to stay in TUNE with God’s supernatural “PERCEIVED and DISCERNED ” TRUE WISDOM (which needs to be balanced with ongoing Bible study)…

….rather than secular, mental REASONING, which is right now needed but NOT in a earthly way which chooses to become SELF dependent and overly (only) analytical which is hard, Greek Wisdom minded.

The WORLD’S SECULAR /EARTHLY wisdom will slowly leave our “know-ers’ (inward perceiver, discerners of God’s “still small (perceived)voice” dulled way down. Add to this extra hurried busyness, many levels off stress, big FATIGUE and this will hammer in one’s spirit,conscience and emotional realm to resemble a person who SEEMS TO BE outwardly STRONG but who in way deep inside, overly weary and potentially WEAK.

AND PSALM 138: 6 is similar to Mark 10:25 “it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for  a rich man to inherit the Kingdom of God.”

And my perspective on “BEING TOO RICH TO ENTER GOD’S KINGDOM:”

First, the Bible teaches that “the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness,peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

Thus, very simply, very plainly, ANYONE who is too all knowing, too guarded, too wise and needing to be RIGHT in their own eyes, is NOT perceptive of what the BIble teaches is TRULY PROSPEROUS.**

**(being I Tim 6 Godly content, loving being righteous but not SELF RIGHTEOUS and having freedom from worry, anxiety (REST, SHALOM PEACE) and JOY (not meaning HAPPINESS, but a DEEP INNER JOY and GODLY CONTENTMENT).
The “overly tough hearted are hard minded” and many are so filled with pressure that they are RICH in maintaing their own form of CONTROL over a business, or IN COMPLETE CHARGE while still anxious, even pent up anger, big frustration which can tear apart their family or their health.

Thus “seeking first GOD’s KINGDOM” and it’s (safe, shalom, sane) RIGHTEOUSNESS and the FRUITS of the KINGDOM (Love, joy, peace patience, temperance, goodness, MEEKNESS)  “and all of these other (leader, business, ministry, family) temporal , yet really needed THINGS “Will be added to YOU.”

Singing God’s Praises!

Blessings!

2ND SERIES REPOST Psalm 138 PART 4

bonar

Hi,

We’re returning to previous format. VERSE 4 of Pioneering Prophetic Kingdom, Actual Ruling King, David’s own Psalm 138.

NOW: PSALM 138  APOSTOLIC LEADER BIBLE STUDY PART 4

FIRST: Please read the entire Psalm 138 (but we only discuss verse 4 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.

VERSE 4:All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of thy mouth.”

Asking first: Just WHO are “all the kings” mentioned in this verse?

I would picture Ruler David interacting with real life ruling kings, who were used to marching into battle, resolving big conflicts and living in crucial, even dire, certainly life and death, heightened pressure filled (many) situations.

Let us also understand that true KINGS need to rule, to establish a KINGDOM DOMINION (spiritual/natural authority governing /house Rules, leader boundaries and a business propriety turf, sphere of regional influence, to make it well KNOWN that they are not going to allow themselves to be taken over from WITHOUT (by opposing equal mighty ,many time demonic, kings) OR from undermining opposing, many times  natural, usurping forces from WITHIN.

Next, try to picture a Dignified, Ruling, Powerful Leader, be they in marketplace business or in senior pioneering apostolic ministry. The forces that attempt to block them from taking God’s Kingdom Dominion, be it poverty, other human accusative troublesome persons or even anti them spiritual or governmental, i.e.natural, real forces, all will, after a time, try to take a toll on the real true HUMAN PERSON who lies way deep inside the Outer Ruler’s Mentally Tough, Appearing to be Strong, Forward, Brave exterior.

Maybe this is why mentioning the example of a KING or QUEEN has a sober serious dignity that comes to mind when one pictures a ruling monarch.

Surely, a real earthly monarch, has been bred under great rules of required decorum, which adds big applied pressure to measure up to “royal high standards.” And add to that (now in media focus days) the ruling dignitary also is fully aware that that the (entire) world is watching.

But, doing business, taking God’s Kingdom dominion, especially way back on pioneering King David’s turf, in his time, is akin to how a regular, business person, senior minister or entrepreneur may actually feel.

They live where the rubber meets the hard,unyielding, twisting, turning Road.

bonar
Grass roots: full of hardened loveless mortal souls, each of our own natural, family real cares, heavy burdens, plus also the big pressure of temptation to feel stressed, heavily PRESSURED to conform to live up to the NATURAL or the SPIRITUAL proverbial JONESES.

And each of us may have a family given expectation to live up to, to progress toward, to fashion OURSELVES into, so as to indeed “Measure Up.” And ALL of the leader above, and a lot, lot more, tend to drain, dry up, sober, and soon wear way down, the natural, still very human, Kingdom  Marketplace, Weekday Warrior, be they King or Queen.

This can explain why mentioning the word marketplace KING brings to mind a mental picture of a dignified, sober ,even somber, type of judge.
However, it’s not because these KINGS  are angry, bitter or mean, it is just do to living under so much relentless mental, emotional, even moral, spiritual BIG UNYIELDING PRESSURE.

THUS all of THIS requires SOMETHING that can break off the big pressure.

WHAT CAN GIVE A BUSINESS KING  a real reason  to SETTLE WAY BACK,  to UNWIND to have PEACE and JOY, even during what appears to be a never ending attack or enemy trial?

Thus, we return to VERSE 4:

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

“All of the kings of the earth….” King David realized the SECRET to replace the joy, the peace and what could even bring a SOMBER,SOBER DIGNIFIED Ruling King a reason to praise the Lord? Perchance to really SMILE?

Both of these can only come about in the absence of big overwhelming mental pressure.

Yet David realized that there was one type of thing that would effect every KING /QUEEN in every land around the entire ruling, business, real life world. He deeply understood, that not ALL ruling Kings /Queens would accept it, no matter how free and available it was.

“all of the kings of the earth….shall praise Thee….” 

Again, there is a big Something which will bring even a tiny smile, to the lips of EVERY HUMAN natural or spiritual Kingdom Business King…

…..and whatever this mysterious Substance or Item IS, will be able to penetrate that invisible soul/emotional/spirit dividing big line and create a spiritual barrior akin to insulation, to declutter, to destress, and to detox, the deep problematic NATURAL HUMAN SUPERNATURAL LEGAL, INVISIBLE, manifesting in appropriate Time in VISIBLE real realms…

…..but the answer is not in any FORMULA or any BUSINESS/MINISTRY “THING”  it is in knowing the LORD personally and fully enough to GET A REAL WORD STRAIGHT FROM HIM!

“All the kings of the earth shall praise then, O Lord, when they hear the words from thy mouth.”

Remember, if God can part the Waters to  let prophet Moses and the children of Israel pass through, HE can certainly part (open up) Time in YOUR often over BUSY ENDLESS DAYS to press in to the Secret Place of the Most High (Psalm 91) aka the Prophetic Cave of Elijah  (I Kings 19:9) in order to ISOLATE yourself to be FREE from cells, media, human real persons.

Then, once you ABIDE THERE (as in not checking your watch continually but views this a First Leader  Love which is His Time Set Time APART) then when GOD is ready, He will begin to communicate back.

HOW: there is no rule on the WAY the Lord may communicate. It may be each or some of the following: Bible verses pop up in your spirit. Over all positive, peaceful PERCEIVED impressions, (have to conform to the fruit of James 3:17, I Tim 1:7 to be TRUE), spiritual pictures of ideas, plans, persons, guidance.

OR if you put on worship music, He may comfort you, send new realms of discerned, perceived REST, COMFORT or CALM.
AND if YOU do not go to any corporate place of “fellowshipping with the (nonlegalistic) saint” HE may instruct YOU to find one as the CORPORATE WORSHIP ANOINTING is much stronger than ONE PERSON ALONE even with the MIGHTY HOLY SPIRIT.

Reason: 1. 1 puts 1K to flight, 2, 10K (Kingdom IFFM in House translation of Deuteronomy 32:30 “One puts a thousand to flight, two ten thousand.”

AND the Bible teaches us that there is “supernatural applied faith and power of agreement” “where 2 or more are gathered in My Name I am there.” (so if 2 have a supernatural power of corporate/common spiritual agreement, then imagine how 200 can even have much more)

And if YOU live ,move and have YOUR natural being around, in the midst of GIANT, GRAVE, EXCEEDING, EXTREME adversity, you must perceive and discern WHEN “worship before the Throne alone” is not enough and when God is telling YOU to leave the comfort of YOUR own Prophetic Cave and find the power of fellow like minded TRUSTWORTHY ACCEPTING REAL BELIEVERS.

IFFM PENCIL ILLUSTRATION: One pencil alone can withstand but so much pressure. Too much pressure will cause it to snap in half.

But MANY pencils, all together, are nearly impossible to snap, no matter how great the pressure is.

That’s all for just now.

We’ll continue with VERSE 5 shortly.

2ND SERIES REPOST: Psalm 138 Study: Part 2

ALMIGHTY BLESSINGS!

Today we will continue expounding on the word of the Lord taken from Pioneering King David’s Psalm 138:2.

We remind YOU to read the prior blog for our Bible study for PSALM 138:1 AND  sharing our reasons for picking THIS Psalm as a “word” to those in prophetic Kingdom business market place and in ministry.

The following is the ENTIRE PSALM 138 KJV, Then the V. 2 expounding,will follow

 “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.

 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, OLord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.”

PSALM 138:2 MARKET PLACE BUSINESS WORD

“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.”

“I” will worship: The prophetic business KING has his heart, soul, and whole MIND aligned with the MAKER of all lesser kings: The Maker of Heaven and Earth. There is NO false pretense as David goes in before the Lord. He is not playing around. King Davide really means DOING BUSINESS!

“toward your holy temple.” David understood that he might be anywhere in the nation, whether at rest in the comforts of his mighty PALACE or hiding out in a cave from his adversaries.

Though God is OMNIPOTENT and abides EVERYWHERE, David recalls the temple where he habitually worshipped, as he evidently had many comforting, reassuring and strengthening time there.

Perhaps he fondly recall the PEACE and REST of the spirit of God there, and that right now, as he may have been facing deaths door or enormous big national PROBLEMS, King David KNEW His God well enough to recall the Secret  Place of the Most High ,about which he  had written in Psalm 91, but which David also knew as a perceived place in the spirit, which is INTANGIBLE yet easily  PORTABLE ,as it is carried in one’s heart /mind and spirit: FROM DEEP WITHIN.

“(I will) …..praise thy name…”                                                                Certainly in the midst of all of David’s leader heightened PRESSURES, even at times while ON the battlefield,  he would push past all of the big fears, dark presences, and the big BURDENS to get into the presence of the LORD (the Psalm 91 Secret Place) (“his (and our) portable battle field temple away from the temple??)

AND King David most likely  gave  God a “SACRIFICE OF PRAISE” an act of WILL and BIG APPLIED FAITH, but a choice based on God’s proven life long RELIABILITY, in times past, and long gone.

Way before prophetic King David composed THIS Psalm 138, he had already met the LORD in a deep way that allowed HIM to connect with the LORD spiritually during times of giving PRAISE.

For in Psalm 22:3 David writes, “God inhabits the praises of His people.”

“(I will worship…….and praise thy name )for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth. “
David the psalmist had had MANY experiences with the Lord, dating far back to when he was the shepherd boy watching the sheep.
Alone in the field, minding the sheep, he evidently had a lot of time on his hands and it left his MIND free to dwell on the beauty of nature, the mysteries of GOD and then to develop an inward “PERCEIVER” “DISCERNER” inward God given spiritual DNA (a spiritual gift, which is what EVERY person called to walk in the office of the prophet will EVENTUALLY have.
Yet while David surely began knowing God, learning about perceiving when  He was nigh, clearly he  was not fully in maturely fine tuned,as no young leader ever is (and even when fully grown ,we are never certain of being 100 accurate)
Thus all throughout David’s big, surely interesting, dangerous and complex with MANY big complex ongoing PROBLEMS, God used each and every one to cause David to rely more and more on HIM, but then as David YIELDED, every very slowly God matured David, and David grew to know much more close to the LORD and far more accurate in hearing FROM His GOD.
To summarize: While the Prophet/Priest and actual ruling prophetic KING DAVID  was working, involved in many major local kingdom BATTLES, /undergoing many accuser attacks starting with being overlooked by His father (when Prophet Samuel examined his 5 older brothers in the search for a potential future KING), and as King Saul grew more and more envious,trying to kill him, later spiritual warfare hit King David’s family: his wife Micah was supremely enraged toward him after David embarrassed HER dancing before the Lord in linen ephod. AND his own son,Absalom tried to undermine his entire KINGDOM in a mutiny.
HOWEVER, all of this allowed David to see how much God LOVED HIM as he was never ever permanently DEFEATED (other than when HE allowed HMSELF to fall into grave leader sin).
THUS as David repeatedly witnessed the up close and personal GREAT GRANTED GRACE which was given to HIM from the LORD, it then showed David spiritual fruit of the Lord’s LOVING KINDNESS (verse 2) and God’s TRUTH (that HE really would respond, would actually forgive David unconditionally, and save, strengthen and PROTECT King David from ALL of his (very many) ENEMIES.
AND THIS  is why David thanked, honored and celebrated’ both God’s LOVINGKINDNESS and His TRUTH in Psalm 138:2:  He knew both the free GRACE and the MERCIFUL GOODNESS OF the LORD in both SPIRIT and in TRUTH…and that no matter what ever happened in David’s leader/personal LIFE, that HIS GOD would never ever leave him or forsake him OR  let him go DOWN!

“….for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name”
Here’s a little Hebrew non-lesson.
The word MAGNIFIED (gadal) translates “to cause to grow up, to become great, to be magnified.”
The word “WORD” (imrah) is translated to mean (God’s) utterance, speech or word. It also may be translated The TORAH (the first 5 books of the Old Testament, which were the only Holy Scriptures available to the king way back then.
The word “NAME(shem) translates:

  1. name

  2. reputation, fame, glory

  3. the Name (as designation of God)

  4. memorial, monument

This means that the WORD of the LORD found in the Bible Scriptures (and because we Christians now live in the New Testament nonlegalistic days,we need to apply the term “WORD” as applying to BOTH the Old and the New Testaments.
AND interesting to note, that while the New Testament book of Philippians 2:9-12 in tells us ,”That at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of things above in heaven, on the earth and beneath the earth, AND every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”
To the writer, this witnesses that while JESUS is the “name above every names” that God’s places His Holy Bible scripture WORD even above the name of JESUS.” Yet, dear Reader, do not be alarmed: because in the Book of JOHN, Jesus Christ is described as THE WORD OF GOD MADE FLESH, check just beneath:

JOHN 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

The Bible then states the spiritual fruit invested in God’s mysterious, not one bite spooky, but supernatural power building BIBLE WORD.  We’ll close with these well known Bible scriptures about the power of God invested (if we mingle them with our FAITH)
Read Hebrews 4:2b:
“….but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
Hebrews 4:12-14 describes God’s supernatural POWER that is invested in His Holy Bible promises:
 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
 Isaiah 55:11
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
PLEASE keep reviewing each of the Scriptures. Claim them for yourself, BUT make SURE to ‘mingle them with YOUR positive FAITH’/ Prophetically DECLARE THEM( again: must be mingled with true hope and real FAITH”
Gotta stop right here for today.
Please keep checking back for the next installment.
Blessings!
