Be Aware of the HALT Position

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:


    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.


 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.


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!

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.


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.


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.


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.



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? 


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.


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 or Blue Letter Bible.
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.

Extreme Business Times: Extreme Encouragement

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:

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 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!

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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!


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.”


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:


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.


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)


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.


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 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!

VINTAGE REPEAT: Prophetic King David’s Psalm 138 Part 1


GREETINGS: I will restart the PSALM 138 series (BOTH of them) as we are strongly impressed that it is GOD’S TIMING FOR PIONEERING BUSINESS LEADERS to come forward, yet to allow ongoing TIME APART to refresh, to hear from the Lord in an AMOS 3:7 “God does nothing unless He first speaks to His servants the prophets” mature fashion.’

C) 2013 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved under international law.


Since last YEAR, the writer had repeatedly sensed the Lord  prompting her to read, to contemplate repeatedly,  then to sink her faith in the following 3 Bible verses, yet then to offer them for SUBMITTED SELAH to all national/local pioneering business, ministry leaders as a timely Leader Word:

  • AMOS 3:7 “God does nothing without first telling His servants, the prophets.” (see prior blogs re this verse and the next)
  • DANIEL 2:28 “There is a God in heaven who reveals secrets.”
  • EACH of those 2 verses imply that we need to continually EXPECT for God to show us what HE has in HIS mind for PROVISION, for PIONEERING on the Kingdom of God (taking Christ’s noncontrolling, spiritual dominion)

Thus, the 3rd Verse, Psalm 138, deals with that. And TODAY the writer will share PSALM 138 PART ONE and in a few days, will post the last verses as PART TWO.


  • In between PART 1 and PART 2, take time apart from your overly busy leader schedule, to relax, to read, and to fully
  • MINGLE your own FAITH with each Promise contained there in.
  • Then experiment with daily repeating the process  again,over and over a 3-4 week period, to allow God’s supernatural Word to build up  YOUR faith, even YOUR expectancy, and even a NEW level of STRENGTH to believe, even RECEIVE “more than YOU can now even ask or think!”**

(**that  last quote was part of Ephesians 3:20)



A Psalm of King David: pioneering leader, warrior, prophet, true priest to the Most High God, and a ruler on the earth.


  • Though raised to mind his father’s sheep,  young David, the last son of 6, was evidently regarded as insignificant by his own father: for when when the Prophet Samuel came searching for the future King of Israel,  the father forgot all about him, and instead recommended to Samuel his 5 older sons.
  • Knowing family intrigue, the writer wonders if  perhaps David’s own father passed over him due to perhaps the father looking down on David; or perhaps the father might even have been jealous of his own young son’s  anointing, big gifts and prophetic leader high calling.
  • The young shepherd boy’s  father was not aware, that standing  out in the field, watching a herd of sheep, yet coming from his own lineage, was  the  future writer of many Bible Psalms as well as the King of the Nation of Israel, and the future father of wise  King Solomon!
  • Time passes: King David is pioneering RULER over the whole Nation of Israel.
  • Yet both King David’s  private as well as public Kingly Life, are far from living on Easy Street.
  • And while it is true, that grown King David is a  Prophet,  a Priest and a Business  REAL King, he still must deal with the majority of tough customers, murderous scoundrels, and  deceptive relatives, who are repeatedly attempting to undermine his Kingship,to  murder him as well as to destroy the high Call of God, and pioneering King David’s  Big Mantle of Prophetic Leader Destiny.**

** (Meaning that David has to deal with the natural real world, fallen mankind: with it’s many various problems and cantankerous mean persons)

  • It is into such a scene of continual EXTREMES, of perennial impending BIG CHAOS, of great accusation, real fights, and repeated betrayal, as well as cease, hectic BIG PRESSURES that King David, grew to know His God closely and very personally.

AND it was during such a period of time, that King David penned

Psalm 138  

Here is PSALM 138 in it’s entirety, but afterward, we’ll describe it VERSE BY VERSE

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 loving kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

In the day when I cried thou answered me, and strengthened 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, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.” KJV


PART ONE (Verses 1-3)

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


  • MAIN POINT: Busy, pressured King David, apparently isolated himself away from his big work, the attacking persons, life chaos, and got completely ALONE with the LORD.
  • Rather than murmuring and complaining, or feeling upset or worried, angry about what was taking place, DAVID immediately took his eyes off WHAT and WHO was AROUND HIM, and focused only on GOD who was very high ABOVE him.
  • Next, David willfully (CHOSE TO )gave PRAISE and WORSHIP unto the Lord. Perhaps with singing, or a mouth full of honoring/magnifying words.

(The Bible also teaches us to “give thanks IN all types of THINGS, but not necessarily give thanks FOR them.. I Thessalonians 5:18)


  • King David did not divide HIS heart into sections, keeping a few parts of his life completely yielded  and pure as before the Lord, but then holding a few back to please HIMSELF.
  • NO, apostolic pioneering David, kept NOTHING back from following the Lord.
  • And even when King David greatly sinned (he murdered and committed adultery) he evidently realized the deep enduring love God had for him, and repented before the Lord.


  • Although the nations all around King David, and even many of his own nation of Israel Hebrew subjects,  practiced either temple idolatry or had private closet false idols, David truly worshipped NO OTHER GOD before the Lord God Almighty.
  • Therefore, King David could sing PRAISES to  the Lord WITHOUT secret personal agenda, NO false priorities, and NO personal remaining, even CLOSETED idols.
  • Because  David was emotionally and spiritually 100 percent YIELDED to God, the fruit of his FAITH was similar to young Timothy’s in 2 Timothy 1  (meaning that it strongly appears that pioneering King  David had like, very precious “unfeigned, non fakey real faith,” which also REVEALS  that David was not a religious hypocrite)

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

VERSE 2: I will worship toward thy holy temple and praise thy name for they loving kindness and for thy truth

MAIN POINT: At the center of pioneering apostle King David’s pure heart, was the Holy Temple of God Over All.

Hence, inside the King’s heart, lay a SPIRITUAL COMPASS, that could remind him to honor the Lord while he was still in the demands of Duty.

David could be in any kind of even dramatic, intense, stressed filled, even dire, situation, and still find a source of COMFORT and STRENGTH by picturing the Lord’s move in the Temple worship.

The writer surmises that David knew his regional geography very exceedingly well. So that, perhaps, even when taking refuge from his many angry enemies, David would find special times to honor the Lord, and to literally face in the direction of the Temple, when singing, worshipping and offering praises unto the Most High One God.

Surely remembering with deep affection, His love of the Lord, in humble gratitude, the Love for meeting with Him as part of the Temple Worship, would bring a positive light to even the fleeting thought of  God’s Temple natural LOCATION.

Most likely, recalling God’s safe House during painful Life moments, gave David a comforting SIGN, which reminded him  of God’s Great Presence, even in the midst of a primarily chaotic demanding, strife torn, warring culture.

V. 2″I WILL WORSHIP” : A Reminder: That often it takes an act of one’s conscious will at times to enter into true WORSHIP during heart break or tension or FEAR, etc.

VERSE 2 “for you have magnified thy WORD above all thy NAME.”

While many wonderful TRUE Bible sermons have repeatedly taught many of us that “Jesus name is above all names, and that at THAT NAME, every knee will bow.

Philippians 2:9, remarks about JESUS CHRIST,

“God has highly exalted Him (Jesus) and given Him a name above every other name.” (this historically includes “all rulers, persons,powers, principalities, spiritual wickedness, and also sickness, disease, and all types of poverty, sin, darkness, and more)

MAIN POINT: But did the reader notice what PSALM 138:2 is teaching all of us?

MAIN POINT: “That God’s WORD is even ABOVE the  name of JESUS….

Submitted explanationn:

  • The Bible teaches us in the Book of John, that “Jesus is God’s Word made FLESH.”
  • I.E. CHRIST JESUS is the BIBLE in human walking, talking, active TRUE FORM.
  • Since CHRIST IS  the WORD OF GOD made MANIFEST, then then WHAT and WHO CHRIST embodied, embodies… has even MORE invisible, supernatural Holy Spirit wonder working, preserving, staying undeniable power, even than all of the miraculous mysterious power in His NAME.
  • ALL this implies: Knowing God’s BIBLE (HOLY WORD) is EXTREMELY  important and quite NECESSARY and that, due to that, each one of us should  take the time to study, to truly know and to put our FAITH IN, the promises in the Scriptures; God’s Holy Word


Although, in the secular system, God’s Holy Word,aka the Bible, is often mistaken as a famous, historical DRY document, it is actually very ALIVE.
Very ironically, Hebrews 4:12 tells us that

“The WORD OF GOD is LIVING and ACTIVE and SHARPER than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and of the JOINTS and  MARROW. and is a discerner of the THOUGHTS and INTENTS of the heart.”

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


MAIN POINT: God hears, answers and actively RESPONDS, the very day we humans  cry  out for HIS HELP and overcoming Supernatural ANOINTING FOR STRENGTH.




The writer’s answer is beneath:


  •  On the day we all He answers….
  • IF we truly put our faith out and BELIEVE that HE will.
  • IF we understand the major PROCESS that God will use.
  • EXAMPLE:Hebrews 6:12, “Faith and patience inherit the promises”
  • EXAMPLE: Hebrews 10: 38,”The just shall live by FAITH”
  • EXAMPLE: 2 Corinthians 5:7, “We walk by faith, not by sight.”
  • YET, while surely, outward STRENGTH matters, it  does not  matter, nearly as much as our/God’s INWARD (supernatural, life/health preserving)  STRENGTH.
  • AND God’s supernatural strength, always builds: FIRST starting on our insides (where soul and faith prosper and mature each of us, according to 3 John 1:2) , then finally begins to manifest on our OUTSIDE
  • This supernatural quickening of our “mortal bodies” (Romans 8:11 Bible Style) ultimately sustains us, refires us and preserves us: IN and THROUGH every valley and every battle.
  • THUS, while needing our MIRACLE is valid, and while, concrete manifested fast ANSWERS are always possible, MOST OF THE TIME  God chooses to use a long PROCESS.
  • GOD’S PROCESS  is usually about one of a variety of purposes:
  • 1)  instances which will cause us to have to know Him and His Word more, which then produces spiritual MATURITY.
  • 2) will test each of our heart pure motives, our personal integrity and perhaps even our emotional/spiritual (leader/follower) mantle as well as maturity.
  • 3) they often require a faith in God on our part, but FAITH with applied  TRUST in God’s TIMING, ANSWERING OVER ALL METHOD and WAY.

This is all for today. This is a SUBMITTED SELAH to each reader, and is NOT therefore deemed by the writer as ” all inclusive” as time  won’t permit.

Yet, it blesses the writer to believe that perhaps it may  PROVOKE NEW  PROGRESSIVE BUSINESS THOUGHT and ENCOURAGE.

AND we’ll finish with PART 2 in 2-3 days.
Almighty Blessings!

“The best way to go HIGHER is to first GO LOWER with (before…)  the LORD.”

“Humble YOURSELF before the mighty hand of God, so that HE may exalt YOU in due season.I Peter 5:6

Too often busy, assertive, achievement oriented persons, get caught up in there hard work,  and then slowly turn into human over worked automatons, who gradually shed their perceiver, discerner, intuitive, ‘in touch side,  with themselves, their spouses, families” OR even worse, fail to remain in continual RELATIONSHIP with the Lord.

That is the FIRST STEP toward a fall from  perceptive humility into doubt, arrogance and leader mental toughness. Once  those signs begin to occur, RELATIONSHIP and EGO ISSUES begin to surface.

The spirit of FEAR is False Evidence Appearing Real, rarely  ever ceases, yet IF and WHEN we choose to set aside time to fully examine these types of IMPRESSIONS,  FEELINGS, the PRESENCES, and procede to hand them over to the LORD (and let them stay there) and abide in Trust and Faith,  then  we can slowly learn how to skillfully avoid being MOVED any recurring  FEELINGS,ALBEIT OMINOUS or FEAR TRIGGERING PRESENCES, UNEXPLAINABLE  DEEP IMPRESSIONS which all produce EMOTIONAL, SPIRITUAL, MENTAL WARFARE.

The secret is NOT to avoid being REALISTIC but to know WHEN to leave the natural realm of COMMON SENSE and LOGIC and when to TURN TO THE LORD (in order to SELF GUARD) by  pressing TOWARD the Lord, and WORSHIPPING Him, turning to Him in PRAYER,so that we keep our COOL and EMOTIONAL BALANCE by “holding our peace, while the Lord fights the battle.”

Anger, retaliation, out of control behavior amidst the pressure  build ups in ministry, relationship. All of this combines to fuel smouldering, building,  deep even ruinous ongoing frustration. ALL of these, unless nipped in the bud, with God’s help, can bring even death to God’s own people, marriages, and once closely knit families.

THINK THROUGH SELAH….”The Lord said to my lord, Sit at my right hand WHILE I make your enemies your footstool.” Psalm 110:1


The Bible teaches that Moses knew God’s WAYS but the children of Israel knew only His ACTS. Because they were very short sighted, Me Centered and focused on their OWN comfort, pleasure and survival, the Kiddos of Israel magnified the NATURAL EARTHLY REALM and focused  on IT rather than a Higher, far more Eternal long term perspective.

Leader Moses had to live amidst 3 million wimpering, blubbering, moody, Me Centered cry babies. There was no escape from this  complaining band of perpetually UNHAPPY HUMANS.

And further more, way back in those desert pioneering, dry DAYS, Moses had no OFFICE DOOR to close to keep them out. He could not even drive HOME, listen to soothing worship music, or take any weekends off.

Thus for 40 continual LONG YEARS Senior Pioneering Leader Authority, had no escape. There were no condos for rent out in the desert…thus, Moses dwelled in a TENT, right among all of them.

And because Moses lived in his tent, he had only a TENT FLAP (which the wind would possibly blow) that could buffer him, (even all night long, for each night of 40 years) or which could separate the Leader and the three million, men, women, children ….OR   (most likely) the many hundreds of CRYING infants.

Imagine,  Moses  trying to get a good night’s sleep, but  not being able to avoid overhearing the plotting of the dissatisfied, and /or some of his own RELATIVES planning a  mutiny against HIM!

Thus,  if WE feel that WE know what “pressure on the front lines is.” Please stop to consider Leader Moses.

AND it is no wonder that Moses got tested by his leader duties, so much that one day, he simply LOST IT and smashed the ROCK rather than using personal SELF GOVERNMENT to hold back his top leader temper!

And the ROCK THRASHING by Senior Leader Moses,  happened not once, but twice. And it was  the second time that Moses lost his cool, that did him in, and due to his being the Head of Staff (figuratively and back in those days, literally!), it also stopped him from entering into the PROMISED LAND. (And we wonder: did Moses also lose his pension plan with God for doing that?)


In closing, we each must pay close attention to the LORD: to let HIM remind us if we are overdoing, not handling life’s pressures very well. This temptation will eventually carry over into our private life, interfere with our family and staff, especially spouses (?)

And being on the verge of being BURNED OUT can create big tensions which may tempt even wonderful persons, with addictive personalities, to partake or relapse or worse, even contemplate doing one’s self in.


So,just know WHEN to say WHEN but just to make SURE, pray for the Loving LORD to get YOUR attention when HE feels YOU are on the way to OVER DOING, OVER ACHIEVING, BECOMING NEARLY BURNED OUT.

Pray that HE will set off a RED FLAG BUZZER warning inside YOUR heart, soul, which this writer has prayed , and the LORD will act.

Finally, you most likely do not live in a tent like Moses. Therefore it will PAY you to remove YOURSELF from the SOURCES of all tension.

AND while we have run out of time today, we submit to you to please read ISAIAH 56, about giving the LORD a Sabbath Day. See Verse 7 as the COMMANDED SABBATH BLESSING (and also more in Is 58 bottom).

And we live in New Testament times, so while this is a command, this is not legalistic. So if YOU are a business owner, head pioneering leader, single parent, head entrepreneur, similar to Servant Leader Moses: the big buck stops with YOU.

So the answer to that, is simply to PRAY that God will show YOU how to carve out whatever time HE can assist  YOU to remove yourself, take a Sabbath, but then, “What ever HE tells YOU to do’ with that dedicated Time Apart…JUST DO IT…obey HIM, and avoid being legalistic, religious.

Yet, Holy God wants a FIRST LOVE relationship with just US. He will be more able to communicate with YOU when YOU attempt to honor Him.
Daniel 2:28 says that “God is the revealer of secrets.”
Yet secrets are usually whispered…so how could you truly hear Him (in his “still small voice, the inward witness of the Holy Spirit) UNLESS you are quiet LONG ENOUGH to allow HIM to communicate?

Finally, once you have chosen to press into being with/hearing back from the LORD, it will be akin to being inside the Psalm 91 “secret place of the most High” (PS Read that Psalm) and also the I Kings 19:9 restoring prophetic cave of the Prophet Elijah, where one can read God communicated to the depleted Prophet “by the still small (discerned, perceived) Holy Spirit voice.”

PS we are starting a series on AUG 19, 2013. It’s named GOVERNING YOUR PERCEIVER GIFTING.

SEE our new IFFM Live meetings as the Lord allows.

REMINDER: Take time apart to ask God to help YOU: Declutter, Detox and Destress YOUR OWN LIFE.

Mighty Big Blessing!

Blessings and Hi!

We’re in a different time and advancing season. IF you can perceive the move of God’s Holy Spirit, you can tell that this is NOT going to be the SAME OLD, SAME OLD.

Personally, I continually experience the greatest rest and true peace and deep real inner JOY that I have ever felt in my entire life.

Here is one REAL REASON: I finally have given ALL of my cares, worries, and fear of making mistakes, my own HUMAN FLAWS continually over to the Lord. And now, at VERY LONG last, He has granted me His grace to finally leave them all there with Him.

WHILE I still feel that we’ve already ENTERED  a real season of impending REAL RESTORATION, I am definitely CLUELESS about how God wants ME to pull it off. However, that is ALSO what I perceive HE wants me to comprehend: that HE wants us to give HIM all the GLORY and will download  WHAT He truly wants US to do, but on an “TRULY NEEDS TO REALLY KNOW” even daily, weekly, etc real time basis.

And for MANY puzzling, yet renewing, so deeply peaceful weeks, when I started to get bugged, begin to feel a tad worried about NOT being able to “ACHIEVE” some very needed real ministry/music GOALS, I would be reminded by the Lord, about

1) Do not take any thought for tomorrow

2) Fear not

3) that what is happening and will transpire in the FUTURE advance ment will simply (need) to be a “Not by (our) MIGHT ,not by (our) POWER but by HIS SPIRIT” exceedingly MIGHTY real, end time even perhaps FINAL mighty move.

(The writer submits this word respectfully to the reader for their own perception of it)

WAY back in the day, there was a song from a musical about Jesus named GODSPELL. I keep being reminded of the words to one of the songs called DAY BY DAY (and it ties in with the this CLARIFICATION, SEEMINGLY SO VERY SLOW, yet (in my own case, and hopefully YOURS) VERY HAPPY, PEACEFUL RESTFUL new Season):


So simple, even childlike…but genuine, trusting…and NO HUGE FEARS OR CARES..

I submit this to YOU as another point of important SELAH. (the words reveal God’s perspective and our only mature wise responsibilities…from a faith realm perspective)

God keeps whispering over and over again: to keep dwelling on, sinking my FAITH IN   PSALM 138 for Kingdom Pioneering Leadership and have already written on it in deep depth in this blog (far back in 2-3 blogs) so THUS I shan’t repeat it.

Yet I will post it below for each of you to read and meditate fully upon.(Meditate: read every line super prayerfully, sink YOUR real faith into the promises within, then declare it OUT LOUD as a wise (prophetic) mind renewing declaration..while at the same time fully BELIEVING what YOU are THEN SAYING.”

Pioneering Prophet, Priest and KING DAVID’s own penned Psalm 138:

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

2 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.

3 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.

7 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, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.” KJV

Tension, Pressures, Tendency to Fear

To Any Reader who lives in Tension City,

THIS APOSTOLIC BLOG is dedicated to YOU.

THE MAJORITY of the time, it’s our own entrenched views and MINDSETS which actually apply enormous PRESSURES upon us, rather that the issues that may currently present themselves.

THE BIGGEST WAR that the pioneering man or lady top ministry, pioneering BUSINESS person repeatedly encounters are EXTREMES in the ways LIFE, PERSONS, even  wicked, presenting themselves to be ADVERSARIAL, OPPOSING, DIABOLICAL MINISTRY/PIONEERING BUSINESS ominous GIANTS.

BUT MOST of the time, the applied many levels of pressure, all of which create great tension, mental and even many physical/health  related real life issues may be traced back to the Adversary of each of our souls: the Enemy, satan, who uses a deceptive tangible smoke screen known as F.E.A.R. FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL.

LISTEN TO  “FOR ALL YOU SHAMMAHS”  A WORD IN SONG for all pioneering SHAMMAHS out on the apostolic ministry business front lines; (Shammah was one of King David’s Mighty Men in II Sam 2, who won his biggest victory in the pea field

THE pioneering Apostle Paul declared in the book of Philippians 1:8, ” In nothing be terrified by your adversaries…”
A PASTOR friend years ago stated,” Walk toward your GIANT, while asking GOD for His clear specific DIRECTIONS.”
TODAY we want to share some MIND RENEWING, for purposes of TENSION /PRESSURE RELIEVING “undercurrent” modern pressure building tempting thoughts.


 MAIN KEY PRINCIPAL: You have to decide what GOD considers to be YOUR OWN PART and HIS PART.

SELAH:  Submitted Steps that WE can take for OURSELF

 According to the Bible, WE must/can make a list of all of our big burdens, many cares, even anxieties and then summarily, HAND THEM OVER TO THE LORD.

I PETER 5:7: “Casting ALL of your care upon HIM for HE cares for YOU.”

 VERY OFTEN our many levels of worry, cares are deeply hidden, way below the surface. God has used this submitted process as a personal tip:

What can YOU De-Clutter, De-Stress and De-Tox in YOUR OWN personal, ministry, business life

WE BELIEVE that this implies that YOU

Take time out and with help from the LORD, go through  your entire life, senior ministry and/or business and DE-CLUTTER, DE-STRESS and DE-TOX the ALL arenas in YOUR present Life: Home, Personal, Leadership, Pioneering Work

Then SUBMIT, YIELD to the Lord. Then, with His help, direction,  take ownership to proceed to  WINNOW all the many scenarios, arenas and relationships in which you work, live: many of which have profound influence on YOU/YOUR WORK or YOU on them.


  I, we, this ministry, this business MUST OUTWARDLY APPEAR to be “Making It Big” and ” own great buildings”” be visibly UP SCALE and UPWARDLY MOBILE” and “very highly respected” and” have great displays of blessed MONEY”….. in order to be other leader/media, life respected as HAVING TRULY MADE IT ( meaning ” TRULY SUCCESSFUL”

AND each one of these, or all of them, can be also measured by either their absence or their presence in the secret corners of one’s own pioneering HEART..

WHICH will then build up or will decrease what is well known as SELF WORTH,over all SELF VALUE and SELF ESTEEM.

FOR those who base their opinions of THEMSELF on the world system values, not on their Holy Spirit BIble based deep intrinsic worth, this up and way low down continuing life long battle will affect health, marriages and all other relationships (including the MAIN ONE with THEIR OWN OPINION OF THEM SELF)

THEN ADD  the undue pressures stemming from relentless ever present Western MEDIA and we see Accuser of both the brethren and the leader sistren ever increasing: envy, jealousy, cut throat competition, deep insecurity, affecting personal, life style, marriage, mental/emotional stability and wellness.


FOR ALL pioneering readers who are torn by the absence of PEACE, who feel PRESSURED by ongoing worry and the known basic  fact, that in order to be an affective Kingdom Business Marketplace Respected Witness, one must have a real life PRESENATION of said product, business, pioneering media, or church.



THIS submitted OCFC Principal is  based on what we believe to be a Holy Spirit KEY LIFE PRINCIPAL: Ministry, aka doing Kingdom Pioneering Business, and living out one’s life: in pure hearted WORSHIP, while yielding to commit to OBEY “An Audience of ONE.” THE ALMIGHTY LORD.


  • THE BOOK OF  PROVERBS TEACHESHe/she who compares him/her self with another is not wise.”
  • The reason for this is that looking all around ourselves to compare, to contrast, (and to mistakenly COMPETE?) with any other human being is going to wind up being a big downer.
  • The result is many forms of PEER PRESSURE, each the result of each of US removing OURS minds and OUR supreme TOTAL reliance OFF  of God and peering around at HUMANS.

THE 2 CENTER VERSES of the entire Holy Bible strongly declare (Psalm 118:8-9)

“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in MAN.

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidences in PRINCES.”

MOST of the time our biggest boost in personal SELF CONFIDENCE appears to  come when we gain recognition, praise or confirmation/needed affirmation from SOME OTHER HUMAN.

However, while this is many times blessed and GOOD, as a risk taker, an Holy Spirit directed leader EXPERIMENTER, we could mistakenly replace FULL confidence IN ONLY the LORD with placing our source of value and self esteem on the opinions of certain OTHERS.

AND if we possess very low self esteem, if they PRAISE and ACCEPTANCE, AFFIRMATION does not come from the heaped praised of our own family, peers or media, we may descend in a downward spiral.

The spiritual fruit of that is twisted, and will shortly affect all very close valued, even God SENT earthly relationships: family, married spouse, close friends, maybe with GOD.


THERE ARE seasons when YOU may feel big time FRUSTRATED, overcome, and even nearly totally discouraged, even without enough FUNDS for family, meeting salaries or funding the work of the LORD.

AND IF you ever have been in a spot like this, or perhaps are now presently in between the ROCK (Jesus Christ) and a VERY HARD PLACE (the natural earth realm tough reality) then God can , will at the same time BLESS YOU, APOSTOLICALLY  INSTRUCT YOU  and even REWARD YOU.

It will ALL come about during the Big  Process, and in only God’s Personally Revealed  Divine WAY and Leader METHOD which is tailored just to fit YOU!

“That you be not slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:12

KEY: God will be working on EITHER or BOTH 1) YOUR OWN FAITH in HIM 2) Building up YOUR enduring PATIENCE HEART MUSCLES.

NEXT: I Timothy 6:6  “godliness with contentment is GREAT GAIN.” (NOTE that  later in that chapter, the Bible warns that if any fellow Christ Follower teaches that “having money is a sign of God’s blessing” that we are to TURN AWAY from all interactions with him/her/them.)

THE FIRST  leader refreshing personal Take Action is to STOP TRYING SO HARD to “be a big business /ministry success.”(this does NOT mean being slothful, sloppy, not aiming for the TOP, not achieving. It only means to stop FRONTING OR COMPARING with others.

AND it actually  does mean “Be thankful for all that you DO HAVE (the Bible teaches us that we are to “give thanks IN all things.”):

PMA : Positive Mental Attitude with Holy Spirit underlying supernatural power is a uplifting COST FREE resource

In “organic” (meaning researching back to the Bible organics of TRULY /RATHER SIMPLY following Jesus) Christ Following, all  mental, emotional and spiritual heart PEACE is viewed from an Eternal Viewpoint:

TAVEAU D’ARCY PIONEERING LEADERSHIP MINISTRIES and OCFC regard anything ORGANIC as “contains NO human engineering or apostolic MIXTURE.)

 As only TRUE, JAMES 3:17 pure hearted Christ Following True, Realistic fruit, will stand the test of both earthly TIME and be rewarded in ETERNITY.


  • USE new simple childlike faith, new focus and a renewed sense of humor….all the while, as before an AUDIENCE OF ONE
  • TRULY TRUST AND HOPE ONLY IN God’s fine tuned apostolic methods, personal timing and methods of provision.
  •  FINALLY: when ever God opens up a way for YOU to remove YOURSELF from your senior ministry ,pioneering work place, R AND R (meaning take a non legalistic sabbath day/time frame OFF)
  • TO recreate, work out,  just sit and do NOTHING, commune with your spouse or with the LORD…and simply RELAXor w just relax, hope and trust  in GOD’s methods, timing in provision.


WE WILL BE HAPPY to pray FOR  YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR WORK for 60 DAYS. Please send request to:

AND WE ALSO AGREE : That YOU will learn how to find the discerned secret PLACE OF HIS REST AND SUPERNATURAL PEACE in the SPIRIT of the Lord, each and every day…and then cultivate the ability to STAY THERE.(YOUR  Psalm 91 Secret Place of the Most High)

More another pioneering day!
