AND YES, admittedly this is a bit long for Random Salt and Selahs,but it continued to keep coming to me as if in a Holy Spirit apostolic download…Plus due to the message I am going to be sharing this on several other DR TAVEAU D’ARCY LEADER BLOGS The Author
THE EXTREME WARFARE OF LPV: LUST/PRIDE/VANITY
I WAS JUST WONDERING:
IS VANITY ONE OF THE FIRST STEPS TOWARD INHUMANITY?

OVER VIEW PREFACE
APOSTLE PAUL WRITES on an occasion to the Philippians in Philippians 1:1c-3:
” To write this to you for me is not grievious BUT FOR YOU IT IS SAFE…. Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and HAVE (place) NO CONFIDENCE IN THE FLESH.”
He then recites his own testimony of his stellar commitment and good works, his adding that (v 8) “I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ” and that for that reason he had “suffered the loss of all (many types of things) but yet added, “I do count them as dung that I may win Christ.”
LATER in verse 18 he declares “
“For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.”
AND SURELY this is certainly the SAME conditions for MANY in pioneering/home, ministry business LEADERSHIP today.
LUST, PRIDE and VANITY usually occur when there is a deep focus on ones own SELF but accusation toward many OTHERS who “don’t apparently measure UP.’ (In Proverbs it urges God’s people to use big caution:” He/she who compares themself with another is not wise.)
Hence competitive PRIDE, is rooted in SELF, EGO and mostly hidden , competitive accusative self promoting VANITY.
- ACCUSER AND BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER
After being evicted from the Garden of Eden, this PROUD, EGO centered, Fallen Human fruit is what first prompted CAIN to become envious of his own brother Able. The accusative, competitive human fear of being displaced, or “not being OVER (topping) everybody else, actually made him so filled with over the top RAGE that instead of remaining spiritually perceptive, calm and under Godly self government (aka leader self control/temperance) he LOST the control over his impulses and rose up to willfully perpetrate an act of MURDER on someone that he had grown up with all of of his life.
- THE ACCUSER AND LPV AFFECT ALL BIBLE RELATIONSHIPS
Therefore the ACCUSER /Mammon, SUPERIOR PRIDE and VANITY all appear to be inter-related according to the Holy Bible. AND each of them affect all God ordained Bible REAL RELATIONSHIPS.
- From GOD and every PERSON
- From every HUMAN to their own personal relationship with THEMSELF
- From every HUMAN TO MARRIAGE MATE
- FROM every PARENT TO OFFSPRING
- FROM every HUMAN to extended family
- FROM every HUMAN to community, church, business, civil law
- MID ARTICLE CONCLUSION: IT COMES TO ME that making a LIVING is repeatedly tied in with ALL of the BIBLE, HUMAN, LEADER, MARRIAGE, COMMUNITY, indeed NATIONAL and many SUPERNATURAL lifestyle, ongoing basic INTER ACTIONS…which indeed are all only about the aforementioned HUMAN MANKIND RELATIONSHIPS.
- LPV COMPETES WITH THE COST OF SERVING AND RELATING IN THE HOLY FEAR OF THE LIVING LORD
“The Fear of the LORD” passage in Proverbs 2:15, tells each child of God how to PRIORITIZE ..which the writer would logically deduce that obeying such, would PRESERVE all of the above named BIBLE RELATIONSHIPS.
“My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.” Proverbs 1-5 KJV
While long suffering under surely GREAT UNDUE PRESSURE, be it town accusative talk, intense spiritual warfare, dealing with local,family, personal ongoing, intertwining healthy relationships, and the need inward KNOWLEDGE of who HE TRULY ETERNALLY WAS and what lies inside the hearts and minds of each of us very mortal accuser type humans: HIMSELF: JESUS CHRIST still was able to keep PERSONAL SELF GOVERNMENT and maintain apostolic balance in dealing with/acquiring ENOUGH DAILY BREAD and MINISTRY..to never once FLUB UP or once GIVE UP!
(a lot more on a different time)
- A HERO ROLE MODEL: CHRIST, THE NON-ACCUSATIVE MESSIAH
AND OFTEN : Acquiring material positions, prestige and honor, making more income , also come into play with both Godly RELATIONSHIPS and either role modeling the Isaiah 11:3 non accuser Messiah, Jesus Christ. “He delighted in the fear of the Lord and did not judge by the sight of his eyes, nor make decisions based on what he heard.”
JESUS WITHOUT ONE ACCUSER LEADER FAULT:And after Bible study of the character and life of Christ, we understand that he never lost governing personal or leadership, any form of relationship, public or private power of perfect authority (in simple terms: Jesus never let one loose, demeaning or accusative, hurtful,bigoted word fall from his lips)
- KING OF TYRUS ANALOGY (a description of the in rebellion, fallen dark angel, satan, well known as Lucifer ) in EZEKIEL 27, 28
(we include both hear..but sorry, we don’t have room to go too deeply)
However, we do call your attention to this:
EZEKIEL 28: 2-5 In the Bible King of Tyrus is an analogy to the false religious spirit of superior accusative human VANITY and relentless PRIDE which in fact, also paint clear pictures of a pictures of the Accuser, Lucifer, well known as satan, the very FIRST worship leader up in heaven.
“Because your heart is lifted up,
And you say, ‘I am a god,
I sit in the seat of gods,
In the midst of the seas,’
Yet you are a man, and not a god,
Though you set your heart as the heart of a god
(Behold, you are wiser than Daniel!
There is no secret that can be hidden from you!
With your wisdom and your understanding
You have gained riches for yourself,
And gathered gold and silver into your treasuries;
By your great wisdom in trade you have increased your riches,
And your heart is lifted up because of your riches),” NKJV
- LEVIATHAN: SNEAKY SERPENT
JOB 41: The analogy of the serpentine LEVIATHAN: which is the example of satan , who was cast down from heaven because of his accusative vain EGO.
“Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?
Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?
Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?
Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him? None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?
Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine. I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.
Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle? Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.
His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.
They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered. By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.
His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth. In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.
The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.
When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves. The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.
He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.
The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble. Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear.
Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire. He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.
He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary. Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.
He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.” KJV
- THE INDIFFERENT SINS OF SODOM
EZEKIEL 16:49 appearing not to be widely known as “the Sins of Sodom” ”Behold, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom, pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness was in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.”
- THE RICH MAN AND THE POOR MAN LAZARUS
LUKE 16:91-39: In the New Testament, well dressed RICH MAN hid his eyes, while a poor beggar, named Lazarus, languished outside his door, suffering and filled with running sores. And the area wild dogs came and licked his sores:
- THE AUTHOR MENTIONS PSALM 118
YET THE COMPLETE AND EXACT OPPOSITE of the ANATHEMA to the survival of all Bible relationships is LPV (big LUST, magnified PRIDE and deceptive VANITY).
YET the ANATHEMA to all levels of LPV in each and every one of us is to fully KNOW( to discern, to perceive, to allow each of ourselves to fully KNOW and EXPERIENCE and HEED) the “Mercy of the Lord.”
THE MERCY OF THE WONDERFUL LORD
As we begin to draw to a close, we point out t something more precious than MONEY SECURITY and WORKING HARD…it is the MERCY OF THE HEAVENLY FATHER who is “there” 100 percent of the TIME.
I name the entire PSALM 118 as apostolic LIFE COACHING in miniature, as it accurately describes the big UPS and way DOWNS of many who live for GOD in all sorts of “fiery trial” and “amazing blessings” ongoing REAL LIFE big situations…amidst ALL ministry, personal, family ongoing steep in deep depth, some AWFUL, pressures.
Taveau D’Arcy Leadership Equipping, her ministry life coaching and DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP, IFFM use PSALM 118 to keep “good cheer” “to maintain heart balance” and a realistic, HEALTHY 5 fold office senior ministry perspective*
*(and in a time coming…will leader expound far more in the IFFM UNTAMED UNIVERSITY (nonaccredited apostolic leader seminary: PSALM 118 DOCTRINES FOR A NEW DAY.”)
HERE GOES: PSALM 118
“O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever. Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever. Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, and set me in a large place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
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 confidence in princes.
All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.
They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the Lord I will destroy them. Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the Lordhelped me.
The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation. The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.
The right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of theLord doeth valiantly. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.
The Lord hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.
Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord. This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.
I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes. This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord. God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.” KJV
And in closing for right now…..please remember “GOD is LOVE”
POST SCRIPT: And when researching PSALM 118, the commentary contrasted Exodus 15:2 with it. It is akin to a baby PSALM 118 pocket size END RESULT OVERVIEW.
AND each are heart pure and FREE from accuser enabling, very non productive LPV:
“The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation;
He is my God, and I will praise Him;
My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.”Exodus 15:2
