Leader: Be A Warrior of God’s Rest

bonar

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

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

BE A WARRIOR OF GOD’S REST

© 2003 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Be of GOOD COURAGE and be a WARRIOR OF REST!

IN THE KINGDOM MARKETPLACE: Speaking Up VS Shutting Up

images-1

 

Blessings Dear Reader!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BIBLE VERSES
Bible Confrontation: Matthew 18:15-18

Turn the Other Cheek:

Righteous anger

What is SIN NOT

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

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

VINTAGE LEADER EQUIPPING: Going Higher

BEyO0A7CIAATAXF.jpg-large

(C) 2013 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved

GOING HIGHER

“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

PIONEERING LEADER MOSES

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?)

REAL LIFE LESSON

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.

AND WE SAY “GOD FORBID!”

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 www.discernmentandperception.org AUG 19, 2013. It’s named GOVERNING YOUR PERCEIVER GIFTING.

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

Mighty Big Blessing!

De-Stress: 2 Scriptures and Soothing Worship

cropped-iffmlogosignaramajpeg5.jpg

Almighty blessings,

I just remembered how helpful it is, when life is running at full speed and maybe big business, ministry deep pressures are all piling on..to simply take time apart, to sit, to isolate oneself (meaning from the pressure by getting in with the Lord’s Holy Spirit Psalm 91 Secret Place Presence (also known by us as The Prophetic Cave of the Prophet Elijah.” back in I Kings 19:9

READ Psalm 91:

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.

He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.

Only with your eyes shall you look,

And see the reward of the wicked.

 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.

In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.

 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”

READ I Kings 19:9 

(Note: this verse follows the period of time when Elijah, BY HIMSELF, faced the 450 false prophets, and outran the chariots of the Demonic Leadership Duo, the notorious, infamously idolatrous and morally weak, King Ahab and demonic dominating Queen Jezebel)

 “And there he (Elijah) came to a cave, and lodged there; and behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
