KINGDOM BUSINESS BIBLE VERSES

Blessings in this bright MAY!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

EXAMINING SOME KEY SCRIPTURES

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FOR THE PIONEERING SKEPTIC

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LEADER REAL PRESSURE

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

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

APPLICATION OF AMOS 3:7

THOUGHT PRODUCER:

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

LEADER Q:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DEPROGRAMMING FROM WORKAHOLICISM

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

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

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

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

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

Extreme Business Times: Extreme Encouragement

earth_6-7

REPOST FROM 2/27/13

(C)2013 Taveau D’Arcy all copyrights reserved

Good AM!

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

IS it more important to SUCCEED or to OBEY?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So the servants followed his instructions.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amazing true prosperity and pioneering blessings!

Sincerely,

Dr. Taveau D’Arcy

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!

Greetings and Blessings to YOU  who are faithful in reading the postings on this KINGDOM MARKET PLACE BUSINESS website!

ONE: ANNOUNCEMENT, WITH IN DEPTH MINISTRY DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP EXPLANATION

TWO: THE PSALM 138:3 PART 3

PART ONE: THE ANNOUNCEMENT:

Before we begin Part 3 (v 3) of Psalm 138 Bible study, I announce the DFW LEADER ONLINE FELLOWSHIP  www.dfwleaderfellowship.org Weekends, several week day training meetings  online www.encouragetelevision.org (announced on Encourage Television homepage chat box, and www.taveau.org home page chat box)

We’ve been having repeated technical/web broadcasting trouble lately, so we simply understand that it is to stop us, which implies we may not have  enough ongoing mature PRAYER.

Sign on to follow the DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP  TWITTER @DFWLeader.

Understand that yours truly feels NO big hurry to really get it up and going strong, as there have been a LOT of repeated hardened claiming to be Christian, “mentally tough customers” and we lost some very crucial high tech, video, sound equipment through all fo that. So we now just really want more team PRAYER.

Thus, I am proceeding extremely slowly, yet I still feel strongly impressed to at least try to START. The DFW LEADER ONLINE FELLOWSHIP will seek, God sent real PERSONS, who are not yet completely identified, and who remain, at this posting, out there somewhere in WEBBISH UNKNOWN SPHERES. Yet, pursing the ever unfolding,mystery of God is half of the pioneering leader calling. So thus we shall both watch and wait, similar to how  Noah might have…

And the over all DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP pioneering Game Plan is   one day have “divine appointment ” DFW Open (land) leader meetings, yet as I just mentioned, but ONLY if and when  God truly SENDS us “TRUE” co-laborer senior qualified  true, seasoned, pure lifestyle pioneering  senior ministers. Please note: we are God called to faith filled, very servant leader, wholesome, giving loving, diverse, racially, ministry culturally mixed,  including worship minsitry.

THE major REAL PURPOSE for even mentioning all of the above,is to simply ask for your ongoing intercession. Appreciations!

ABOUT THE DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP: It will be prophetic perceiver, discerner without respecter of persons /leader patrician overseerism. IFFM and DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP  also has a Real Leader Man’s  and Real Capable Leader Female in “raise up to release, help over see,  house calling.

Whomever comes along, should  truly talk the talk as well  as Truly “walk the walk.” AND prepare for being criticized, the accuser follows this ministry. SO we shall need preventive leader required /senior office training.

IFFM prefers not to have any sloppy agape, not reliable COCONUT TIMERS (never know when the coconut will fall from the tree!) AND we prefer ministers who are not overly perfectionistic, or ones who would demand perfection and/ or need a lot of  structure.

WHILE IFFM is  called to be Holy Spirit organized, to be wise,  business like the main over view required calling is one of “divine flexibility” and we will all want to be led by the Spirit ( and apostolically Holy Spirit applied self government, discernment, clear perception, Bible balanced divine  in family /personal leader Life and Lamp stand life style.

IFFM Is “in House refreshing, decompression, with emphasis on edgy rock, relaxing stress relief worship, oriented and thus prefers low key, relaxed but NOT EVER SLOPPY ministry appearance ( deluxe casual, professional, dress down, dress business casual, or neat (if on stage)  jeans, athletic professional wearing apparel). No suits required,(maybe once every so often: Christmas, special ministry leader occasions) JUST so persons are appropriately dressed for representing the LORD. 

Dr. T believes everyone’s  ministry offices give evidence of God’s granted goodness and great grace. It is IFFM’s desire to stir up each person’s spiritual and natural gifts and release them to function in those special supernatural and many NATURAL, even prophetic KINGDOM BUSINESS and WORSHIP, VISUAL MEDIA ARTS, and then hold 5 fold office major refreshing prophetic conferences.

 IFFM servant leader’s will demonstrate and train on real respect and true in house, leader authority but will at the same time be primarily servant  trainer, co-laborer without an elevated pulpit. Yet IFFM and Senior leader Taveau D’Arcy are NOT  called to counsel immature Boanerge pushy ministry.

DFW LEADER ONLINE FELLOWSHIP encourages emotional, spritual,financial, pioneering ministry, leadership, and over all relationship maturity, in a “one day at a God time” ongoing revealed manner. (this is the main IFFM calling)

IFFM DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP, ONLINE AND ONLAND: The IFFM DFW ONLINE FELLOWSHIP call to leader model Holy Spirit flow with Bible /natural real world over all balance. We need to know WHEN to do the natural /wise type of thing but when to be directed by God’s inward witness.

DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP a  has a work/leader/pioneering office ” “work birthing” calling: to impart, release and allow many others to truly LEAD. IFFM DFW-LOF strongly emphasizes “Little is much when God is in it” and “Godly contentment is great (leader) gain.”

IFFM DFW LEADER ONLINE FELLOWSHIP has a high calling over it for  God’s proven leader wisdom in natural practical REAL LIFE types of money, financial , senior ministry and in pioneering business, ministry KINGDOM MARKET PLACE true early natural and supernatural real business.

IFFM DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP serves other local pastors by ongoing prayer and referring them new God perceived being sent, persons.

AND while IFFM is  NOT seeking “card carrying club members, when a person applies for ministry , worship team, teaching positions,etc. it will be akin to “official membership” as we want truly mature, reliable, emotionally stable, hard working,but family types NON PERFECTIONISTS quality ministry professionals.

And there is no  big hurry, As we have come accustomed to, DFW LEADER FELLOWSHIP is an ongoing over all potentially slow PROCESS which we will be happy with, as we only want to have it manifest if God truly needs it and in HIS  APPOINTED WISE TIME.**

***Thus the lesson on verse 3  “abiding faith and patience” happened at the  precise exact time!

. So now, simply RELAX, yet  keep watching as the DFW-LOF (the way cool acronym for DALLAS FORT WORTHY LEADER ONLINE FELLOWSHIP) website continues to UNFOLD, you will (hopefully up soon)  note a CALLING to help the Bible Least of These.

And a lot more another time on all of that.

Now, please prepare your heart for PSALM 138:3 just below:

article-2397320-1B5E7D01000005DC-911_154x115

PART TWO

NOW: PSALM 138  APOSTOLIC LEADER BIBLE STUDY PART 3

FIRST: Please read the entire Psalm 138 (but we only discuss verse 3 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.

TODAY 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.

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.”KJV

VERSE 3 STUDY:

PSALM 138: 3: In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.

P.S. We also discussed this entire Psalm 138 way back in the early beginning of this blog.

SO our only  reason for REPEATING it, is that it is a WORD FROM THE LORD for the national body of Christ, along with Amos 3:7 DUE to what we all truly know is NEEDED: Body wide, local, persona, church, and ministry, kingdom business FAMILY produced REALLY REAL income. (but not meaning  fly by night, kooky or UNSOUND).

And this is WHY we are repeating it. For it will require EACH OF US “mingling each of OUR OWN faith” with God’s real PROMISES.

For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” Hebrews 4:2 

SO PRAYERFULLY YIELD, MENTALLY  ACCEPT and ” BELIEVE” but all try to peruse the OTHER PSALM 138 previous Bible study, as I am not repeating, it, however, I remember that in VERSE 3 I did a LOT of expounding, which I prefer NOT to have to do again here, BUT will do a BRIEF ONE, yet do not want YOU to miss out on any of what was written before.

PSALM 138: 3: In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
“in the day when I cried” implies don’t just be overly HEROIC and have “pull yourself up with your own tough minded boot straps forced thinking.” Rather, go to the LORD and REALLY get REAL.  Make a list of all of YOUR cares, fears, real worries and the heavy burdens,  then CAST THEM over onto the LORD: and let them remain there.
“in the day when I cried YOU answered ME”
This means that the LORD hears and answers YOU the very DAY, HOUR, MINUTE when YOU pray, call out, or ask. YET, there is a TIME PERIOD (long or short, whatever GOD understands is for YOUR OWN BEST) when the answer occurs, is made MANIFEST.The IN BETWEEN TIME is the “faith and patience inherit the promises” TESTING, SPIRITUALLY MATURING time.
And it may be hours, days, many weeks, even years, as God has a Higher Goal in His Eternal Leader Mind. It is not only about YOUR REWARD (which of course is in the Bible, is very pleasant, even needed and He wants us to have “our heart’s desires” …yet God has a higher PLAN to get YOU to truly know HIM and to see if YOU will really love HIM even if HE doesn’t give YOU everything YOU really believe that YOU want and surely DESERVE.

Admittedly, this is the TRUE FAITH  and PATIENCE  MEANING in each one of our over all maturing true process yet broken down in 2 -3 sentences…
“In the day that I called, YOU ANSWERED ME and strengthened me with strength in my soul.”
YOU cry out to Him, HE responds ASAP, yet NOT in earthly visible manner, IT is INVISIBLE, but while he is getting our conditions, including our HEARTS right, and directing us every STEP along what needs to be HIS NARROW WAY,we are given something to maintain us, to make us enduring,  and filled with HOPE…He imparts to us for FREE, at the very time we call to Him (in prayer). and ANSWERS US.
IN A NON PEANUTTY NUT SHELL:
  • We call
  • He answers and has the end product ready but is going to teach us  some ETERNAL BIBLE PRINCIPLES and also WORK ON EACH OF OUR OWN CHARACTERS, MINISTRY CALLINGS.
  • So, God appears to supernaturally exert His wonder working power and Lordship, and (for unknown by myself OVERSEER reasons) He mysteriously keeps us in suspense until just the right appointed Time. YET, the Heavenly God  is continually working both on US and behind the scenes to get it and US really ready.
  •  Thus, when by the time the answer is ready to be made manifested, God will have worked on  OUR HEARTS, repeatedly tested our faith and patience and will have spotted both good and also needy spiritual/moral character, lifestyle, significant places which HE has seen that HE wants us to really learn about: How to really LOVE, Forgive, Have required Endurance, Real Patience , and a lot more.
And all of the above equally tie in deeply with God’s LEADER/FOLLOWER  ANOINTING and our need for MATURITY in self governing over it.
So we will need to wait, and be patient (continually) and , to follow His every clear direction, to yield to His Word and to make His praises well known.
And after the time between “I SEE IT” and”THERE IT IS” we will look back to  see how God used the invisible testing and waiting time to ENRICH US with the invisible, intangible types of things which NO AMOUNT OF MONEY or PEOPLE  or BUSINESS/MINISTRY Kingdom Business Position, Power,Prestige or HUMAN SUCCESS that MAKING MORE  MONEY  could ever buy.
That’s all for now.
The next blog will be PSALM 138 verse 4.Almighty blessings!

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

bonar

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.

BLESSINGS!

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.

BIG READER SUGGESTION:

  • 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)

PART 1

PSALM 138 VERSES 1-3 

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

BACK GROUND: PIONEERING DAVID

  • 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

BIBLE DISCUSSION

PART ONE (Verses 1-3)

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

V. 1  WILL PRAISE 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)

V. 1 “WITH MY WHOLE HEART”

  • 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.

V. 1 “BEFORE THE GODS I WIll SING PRAISE”

  • 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

REAL REASON

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.

VERSE 3: IN THE DAY THAT I CRIED

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

IN THE DAY? PRONTO, ON THE SPOT, RIGHT THIS SPLIT SECOND

VERSE 3 “IN THE DAY THAT I CRIED THOU ANSWERED ME

MAIN POINT: IF God truly answers IMMEDIATELY on the day that I CALL OUT FOR STRENGTH why can’t I feel it NOW: (meaning: IMMEDIATELY/FAST/JACK IN THE BOX, FAST FOOD DRIVE IN FAST  FIX?)

The writer’s answer is beneath:

VERSE 3 “AND STRENGTHENED ME WITH STRENGTH in MY SOUL.”

  •  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.”
  • INWARD STRENGTH VS OUTWARD MANIFESTATION:
  • 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 CUTTING EDGE IS BALANCE.”

These words appeared in a vision given to OCFC pioneering servant  Senior Pastor,

Dr. Taveau D’Arcy by the Lord while on a family trip to Washington, DC in 1995.

The entire picture with the words THE CUTTING EDGE IS BALANCE was that of a pioneering leader standing precariously balanced on the edge of an enormous, old timey razor blade. It he/she slipped from being fine tuned balanced, they would either go over one side or the other.

In the vision, if the leader slipped and fell off onto one side, there was a deep chasm, with huge hard boulders and rocks..upon which they might be smashed.

However on the other side, there was a giant vast swirling river, which could carry them away, sweep them away.The Cutting Edge is for any leader rely heavily upon the Lord to keep that fine tune balance..and this was not ONLY on topics pertaining to finances, income, monies, but in every single other subject matter.

IFFMLOGOSIGNARAMAJPEG

Discernment of  Bible Organic True Prosperity: 

DR TAVEAU D’ARCY LEADER MINISTRIES BELIEVES:

OCFC firmly believes God’s Holy Word in III John 1:2 (read that  scripture bove)….and that when each Christ follower takes personal responsibility for doing the things which our Father’s Word says will PROSPER HIS/HER  OWN MORTAL SOUL…….then all these other forms of real life PROSPERITY (Pure Shalom peace, rest, finances, joy,fruits of the Spirit, gifts of the Spirit, etc)…..and HEALTH will eventually manifest. This may  require spending time in God’s Word, even much proving of faith, patience and even long suffering. (“The trying of your faith works patience.”….)

There is NO “one size fits all” financial, healing or any other formula…just as GOD relates to each one of His Children as “His Only Dear Child” so, Father God permits each one of His children to grow, learn more about Him and to even grow closer to Him in the FOS Club (“the fellowship of His sufferings”)  just as Christ Jesus was a card carrying lifelong FOS Club member as He allows different situations which we can view as His maturing us and also  in teaching us personally HOW to prosper AS OUR OWN SOUL PROSPERS.

OCFC  firmly believes that God uses tests in “SOUL PROSPERITY” to build strength of moral character, endurance and abiding, enduring faith and love…not to mention, show us all the value of “passing through this life” on the way to Heaven.
With regard to the topic of MONEY, OCFC believes in need, not greed, not lust for other things. (Since the Bible says they choke His Word.)

OCFC Definition of financial TRUE PROSPERITY: is purely a matter of what God, based upon the Word of God, and the conscience of the Believer…what is THEIR PERSONAL VERSION of “financial prosperity.” TO live beneath may be rooted in unbelief, fear of looking too showy, or pride. TO live way above one’s own God directed peaceful conscience may be rooted in other forms of pride, lust or greed.

In fashion conscious society, even sadly in Christian pioneering ministry: Too many pastors, leader, and lay persons accidentally compete with one another by comparing their own God given level of personal, ministerial financial (viewed outwardly) with another’s. We all need to use great caution, since Proverbs instructs us, “Any person who compares him/her self with another IS NOT WISE.”

Example: God may also use one pastor’s, one lay person’s own view of what is prosperous to test him/her as in, “will they compete? are they in jealousy, rivalry? Will they gossip, speculate or set themselves up as judge?’ And the Bible teaches, “God uses the foolish things of the world to confound the worldly wise.” (The worldly wise sadly may be found in many born again pioneering other wise very nice, churches)

Here is OCFC belief: IF we keep all of our eyes ONLY on the Lord and keep watch over our own SOULS, including ONLY OUR OWN CONSCIENCE, as before the Almighty God, then we will each not be tempted to judge, speculate, believer gossip or be jealous.
Secondly, OCFC believes fully that there is much more to think about than WHO has WHAT and WHAT IS ON THEIR OUTER COURT. OCFC frankly believes that pastors, ministers, lay persons who keep tabs on everyone else’s financial display are spiritually immature and completely shallow. To view oneself as a Christian OverSeer Critic Watch Dog whom God has placed as supreme judge over all other Christ followers reeks of lack of love, being chiefly ego centric, and presumptive.

GROUPS or TRUE MINISTERS who set themselves up on public pulpits to ridicule, mock or label by their NAMES….any Believing Christ following other groups, ministers, pastors such names as “Blab it and grab its” or “name it and claim it” to thereby hurt the tender conscious of youth, baby believers and others in their congregation or radio/TV audience, may be judged similar to the Lord’s Supper Communion warning, ‘Many of you are sick and die young since YOU FAIL TO DISCERN THE BODY OF CHRIST CORRECTLY.” (There for the grace of God go we all…so all of us must refrain from being judges of movements, teaching, and God’s pastors….Let GOD only judge.)

OCFC has a firm believe in God’s Word. In the book of Revelations, John gives a word from the Lord to the sr pastor of the Philadelphian Church (of Brotherly Love) This word tells them that The Love Walking, EVERYBODY honoring, Philadelphian Church…will be the only church who’s doors would never ever be closed (Rev. 3) and would be saved from the fiery trial coming upon the earth.

This writer has personally heard one media station permit name calling such as “word of faith pastors BY NAME…on more than one occasion, by more than one allowed broadcaster….living in the holy fear and dread of the Lord…this writer went  to warn one of their staff on several occasions, but they did not want to believe all this.

The shocking result: SO now they are off the air in their formerly PRIME area wide broadcasting spot.

Third:  OCFC believes, based on the above, “let each one’s Godly clean conscience RULE” ministry, leadership/lay person standard: IF ONE mature leaders conscience says that THEIR own personal version of “what is truly prosperous” means a double wide trailer near a fishing pond” while another’s God given clean conscience allows them to have a $6million dollar mansion, 4 cars, even while IFFM personally does not feel called to live ostentatiously, we must agree that THAT is NONE OF OUR OWN BEESWAX if any other true servant of God does.
SOME very large highly visible ministers must live in gated security to have protection due to death threats against their own lives or family.

OCFC therefore urges all Christ followers to follow the Biblical instruction of wisdom, “A good man/woman lays up treasures for his /her children’s children.” Proverbs

SO, WE refuse to allow JUDGING anyone from afar, we prefer to let GOD ONLY be the judge.

OCFC does believe that due to the ministry being viewed as “all about making big money” and due to the increasingly cynical rabid distrust of pastors, ministers and many local born again churches, we strongly advice that TV ministers, pastors use much more restraint in flashing materialism, since too many now equate MONEY as the near the Top for “God wanting us to go to church.” (SELAH)
OCFC believes that any person who judges any other pastor, person or Christ follower for THEIR OWN GOD GIVEN VIEW of “Financial Prosperity” may be viewed by the Lord as judging, incorrectly discerning those in Christ’s Body or just plain and simple: Self Appointed Nosey Busy Bodies.

OCFC firmly believes that PROSPERITY is from the inside to the outside. We advice all pastors, leaders and lay persons to practice Godly Contentment, no matter what your income level. “Godly contentment has great gain.”
