Hey bloggers,

I was in meetings all day yesterday (still in N’Awlins), but I was reading your comments on my Blackberry as they came in throughout the day, and I must say…very cool stuff! Seriously, the verbal tapestry that you all weave here together every day is something special to behold.

Rev. Kutts read several of your reviews of the GPF to the ACLC Convocation today, and everyone was very moved by them. I think we just added a lot of new people to the blog as a result.

The meetings have been very interesting and enlightening. I’m flying back today, so I’ll tell you about them tonight ITB.

My apologies for the difficulty that many of you are having with getting e-mail to me, but the staff tells me that the current security settings are necessary. We’ve had lots of problems in cyber-hell (cyber-gehenna?).

You may already know this, but the purpose for the word verifications on the blog is to keep out bulk spam. But your interpretations of them are funny and sometimes profound…even prophetic.

Anyway, I’ll see you tonight.

Stay strong today.

the revelation said...

this is the revelation and i must say when you realize that you can only possess 99% control and that the final step to 100% percent control is the surrender of your control you begin to understand that no thing was of your own doing. And in that moment of understanding you see that God does not perfect those things which concern you for your benefit, but for His own benefit because He is now in control; He has brought all things to you ,and HE must prosper you because it is His promise that is on the line. When the last morsel of control is handed over it is no longer your responsibility to make the promise true it is God's responsibility to prove Himself true. Love to the African eleven.

Hello Blog Family,

My name is Scott, and I'm an adamaholic.

No, I didn't say an alcoholic, God's grace to you if you struggle with any such thing. I am an adamoholic, but I am also I child of the living God. My entire life I have bought into the lie that God was somehow mad at me when I sinned. It's just another revelation in the process of Christ being revealed in me. Where can a man hide from God? Where can you go that the motives of your heart are not clearly displayed before Him? But it's so hard to get naked before God in our own mind. We are often afraid of what He might say or we are paralyzed with guilt from how we perceive Him to deal with our faults. Were afraid He's mad at us. My friends, nothing could be further from the truth. Don't walk away from the seat He has prepared for you, as strongly as your Adam nature will rage against you, telling you to stand pat or walk away. Even in the very presence of your enemies, even so, the very enemies of your own mind, He has prepared a place for you. It's impossible when your perception of God is darkened by the fall to take that seat. In the Garden of Eden, the first act of the devil was to malign God's character. "He's holding something back from you. He's not being real with you. He's setting Himself against you". Oh that we come to the place where we can behold the heart of the Father for His creation; His heart of great compassion, love, and burden over you. That we strip ourselves bare of all our vane attempts to please Him in our flesh or believe anything that is truly good and of God in us has come by our hand. God's work is far from complete in me. And oh, He is doing such a work in me. I am going through the fire right now, as are many of you, and it can be a glorious fire and purification if we allow it to be, if we sit at the table. Who can see God and live? When you start to really see how much God loves you, when you see that the cancer of your sin causes Him not anger and frustration against you, but loving sorrow and caring tenderness for the condition of your fallen nature. Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do. When you finally realize that no good thing is in your carnal mind and that whether you were born on the good side of the tree or the bad side, both are poison in your veins concerning God's Tree of Life in you. Only by fellowship with the Lord will you be made free. And this fellowship is available at all times, even the very moment after you sin. My friends hear what I am saying; God loves you. He allows circumstances in our lives and thorns in our side to correct and purify us in Christ. When we see that, we will truly see that He is working all things in us to the accordance of His will; it is He alone who has made us his children by the word of truth. John, in the book of Revelation saw you their. You make it! Everyone will be salted with fire; everyone will awaken to this resurrection life. He who has begun a work in you, most assuredly is completing it. Do not despise the correction of the Lord, for in His presence, He will heal you of all sin and unrighteousness. For you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and that is what God sees in you. Hunger after truth. Meditate on His love. Pray in the Spirit. Heap blessings and praises upon Him from the deepest darkest recesses of your being until the laughter or the tears once again overtake you in the glory of His nature. Avail yourself to the presence of God and He will deliver you!

Bish...
Amy sent me this link. It is a slideshow of the Earth from different vantage points in space. For many reasons, I was very moved.
While watching them, I thought of you, so I wanted to share.
I believe you will understand why as you watch.
I can only imagine how difficult it must be to keep a global vision when things at home are, to say the least, not so clear, but it's nessasary that you do. The World is yours now, whether you want it or not. Your destiny is set. As you continue to see the "big picture", God will continue to perfect the details. Don't worry.

Peace,
PM

Bishop, I love the freedom you give us here to create and breath new life from the Holy spirit into the world to read, the love that we are allowed to express and the gifts you show us by example to explore.

Overcomer, I am tired for you as a parent of adult children and understanding the full dynamics of levels of abuse, there is a righteous indignation that rises up in me that says ENOUGH.

John the Baptist states that the Kingdom of God suffereth violence and the violent taketh by force. I bind the spirit of abuse that is in your family and put an axe to the root of witchcraft. We have the witness of the Holy Spirit and with your agreement we become a three fold cord that will not be broken. Overcomer, I believe that sometimes we have to get sick and tired of being sick and tired so we must press until something break.

In the name of Jesus, we brake the back of abuse over your daughter. God loves her and is with her and He knows and He sees and He cares. When I packed up and left the state with my 3 daughters after years of abuse, the Lord said to me that the prison has been in my own mine, that He had released me from that relationship a long time ago.

Overcomer, please know, that many times we are prisoners in our own minds, that we alienate "ourselves" from the truth and from our own deliverance and our own freedom and the battle ground is the mind. When Bishop accomplished one of the SOTB (III), I think - he did this whole section of the unfailing love of God enduring for ever. How I pray we can have a prophetic, deliverance conference in hour span like a SOTB (the prophetic edition), but I digress. Please forgive me.

But when Bishp called the audience up to read the scriptures pertaining to the love of God something happened to me on yet another level. The was one more layer of that onion peeled off and the love of God was deposited in such a tangible way. I can hardly contain myself from being ever aware of the love of God. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. I listed to that CD over and over and over again, OVERCOMER until I got it.

You do understand that as we keep our ear gate full of the SWORD of God, it cuts both ways. There is a severing of oneself from one's flesh that needs to take place (dying daily or being crucified in Him) for us to truly get what the Lord has for us. Let there be light to your precious daughter, to her mind, to her heart, to her spirit, to her soul and to her body. I charge angels of protection over her. No weapon formed against her shall prosper but every tonque (every weapon of abuse) - Isaiah 54 (read entire chapter) that rises up against her, your seed shall be shown to be in the wrong. David says this, "I have been young and now I am old yet I never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed...."

I decree this day, as a watchmen on the wall, that the spirit of abuse in broken, by God's spirit, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Overcomer, do not be weary in doing, if you faint not (paraphasing) you shall reap in due season.

I was watching a tad bit of TBN last night which I rarely do however there was a evangelist (Pickett) on who was talking about the dust that we were formed in. She broke down the word formed and I was pretty amazed. According to her definition, the word formed means "pressed or squeezed". I thought that was very interesting.

You see there is something which is happening when we are being formed, we are being squeezed and pressed from every side but the potter is forming us into an image to be like him. There is a process and it can be very uncomfortable, Karl and Overcomer, however He's got you and He loves you and that love will never fail.

I could sing of His love forever, but I am assured I still have not totally realized the breadth and width and height or depth of His unfailing love.

So I am asking my co-intercessors in this body to stand in agreement with Overcomer and myself and the Holy Spirit that all of our daughters and sons are delivered from any level of abuse whether if be mental, emotional, spiritual or physical, in Jesus mighty name.

Who the Son sets free is FREE INDEED!

In His love,
Yve

Erik, Your description of joining the dance brought to my memory a subject that I read once by a scientist called the 'cosmic dance'. The spiritualist, Thomas Merton also referred to an eternal dance.

I've danced with God many times and some of the best moments of enjoying this dance is when I see the enjoyment of others involved in the same dance.

Speaking of dancing with God, just gotta shout out to PM for the information that I blurked and folowed up on at the blue beauty link he gave to Bish. I will share that with some others that have the same love for God's creation.

It would be absolutely awesome to experience that from the astronauts view. The flash movie on the link is very well put together and is accomodated by very nice pipe music (sounds like Andean pipes to me but could be a variety of flutes). I like the contrast on one of them that showed day and night with the city lights coming on in process of nightfall. I know that Bishop will get refreshing from what you shared PM, but this will be good for others also.

Looking forward to being with all ITB tonight.

Iris said...

Peacemaker,

WOW!!!! The global slide show is amazing. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. It truly keeps everything in perspective. There is such a peace when you see things from God’s point of view, not to say that He is way out there somewhere looking down on us, but to know that God is in, through and surrounding us all, with His grace, mercy and love.

We have to have a global vision. If we are to really experience God for who He really is, we have to get beyond our small geographical space where we live, and embrace the world. For God so loved the WORLD… To experience Him fully… we have to love Globally….

Thanks again for allowing me to readjust my perspective today.

Loving the Dance...
Iris

P.S. Bishop, as Peacemaker said, “The world is yours now.” Go speak peace to the nations, speak for all of us who have this vision as well. We will hold up your arms, take strength from the Lord, and the ones who stand with you. You are not alone, we believe God, we believe in this vision, and we believe in you, and we believe that God has ordained for this time. Peace.

Powerful word and prayer, and also SOZ and anon 3:33 thanks for the delicious manna today! (always really and everyone)

Thank you, JB...
I always love your insight on things. Speaking of seeing from an astronauts perspective, I have read of some who have meditated into such a deep state of consciousness, and right before they experience a complete oneness to All, they have seen the globe from a similar vantage point. What a profound experience that must be.

Iris...
Your response was full of wisdom and deeply moving...thank you. I am in a very deep with place with Spirit right now and its very easy to "feel" insightful words while reading them. I certainly felt yours.

At One with you all,

Thanks, everyone...

I just got back a little while ago...just in time for a staff meeting...about to have a meeting with someone from ECCU (the bank)...

Thanks, especially, PM, for the website...Iris is right, the earth pics do put things in perspective...and thanks for what you said...your words are good for me to meditate on before this next meeting (I'm not nervous about it...I believe that we have favor with our lenders...)

And thanks, Laura, for the heads up about the UPF site pics of the GPF. I hadn't seen them, and they are beautiful. Rev. Kutts gave me a disk of pics, but I left them in New Orleans. I'm always amazed at how well this place protographs.

Hope to see you all tonight...I'll have out in plenty of time to see the debate...

OK, since you mentioned it Bishop, I've logged on and off the blog until a veri word spoke to me.

cjoimedr

Christ Jesus our intimate Messiah eternally delivered righteousness.

This makes me think in eternal terms on how God as the man Jesus on the cross did that work before there was even a human or an earth to put one on.

The fact that we have that historic work recorded for a reference point in time as we percieve time to be is a very sweet testiment to God's unconditional love.

I believe that many people who once were blind are continuing to see a more clear picture of the true Christ because of your efforts and other likeminded lovers of Eternal God.

(love times mercy) (christ times victory) = agape. Well OK maybe that second one was a stretch.

Always good when you get home Bish! The words that I read each day that I dive in are such blessings. All you guys and gals are good for the soul.

Hey Avatar,

I hear what your saying and thank you. However, we all still struggle at times with the tare inside us. Yes I am a beautiful golden growing piece of wheat, but their is still a tare that fights for control in me as well. We all face the Romans chapter 7 scenario in some respects. Their is Christ in me, but their is also the law of sin and death working in me. The more I water and nourish the seed of Christ in me, the less it is I that lives, but Christ who lives in me. In our carnal minds we place enmity between ourselves and God when we miss the mark. This need not be the case. THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE! We've been taught you have to choose one or the other or God will turn from you. That is not love, and if it were true it would make the Father's condition no better than our fallen own! This is not the heart of the Father towards you, me, or anyone else, no matter what their situation may be. Keep loving God and He will change you. Don't run and hide from God when you miss the mark. That's the Good News. That was what I wanted to convey.

Eph 4:17-18

This I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart

Take this stony heart and give me heart of flesh Lord!

Anonymous said...

I am the person my parents warned me about, and I'm OK. Thanks Lord.

Son of Zadok said...

And also this tare we are overcoming is not limited to bad behavior, but good behavior that is a self effort to try and please and appease God. The mentality of do bad, God is unhappy with me, do good (pray, study, go to church, do good works, abstain from sin) and God is pleased with me, is the lie and the darkness in our mind. This perspective of good and evil must be overcome in us. We try to choose the good over the evil, rather than learning how to contact and live by that Holy Spirit of God that has been placed within us. He loves you constantly no matter what. I cannot earn His love and blessing under Christ. So when I fall, on either side, I have every right to pick myself back up.

The Cloud of Unknowing said...

I have decided to forgo the rest of the introduction which goes into Dionysius influence on the author, some historical background of the author which is very minimal, and an explanation of this edition of The Cloud made available to the modern reader. Here however is the author's benediction.

Let me conclude my part by making my own the words of the author: "My dear friend , I bid you farewell now with God's blessing and mine. May God give you and all who love him true peace wise counsel, and his own interior joy in the fullness of grace. Amen."

PRAYER

O God unto whom all hearts lie open
unto whom desire is eloquent
and from whom no secret thing is hidden;
purify the thoughts of my heart
by the outpouring of your Spirit
that I may love you with a perfect love
and praise you as you deserve. Amen

Funny anon@355...and profound.

SOZ, yes, I get what you're saying. Setting my mind on the things above (not in an ignore sense--but a "yeah, I know that's there but I'm choosing to set my mind on what God says" way) is what I was doing.

Your posts today have reminded me of a story I tucked away in my collection: a new Christian, big time thief, found himself in a store stealing again. His response? "Lord, your property is in trouble."

When I first heard this I was struck by the lack of condemnation of self, just a statement of the situation and an indication of who owned him--and the thing he was lifting--and who could do something about it. I didn't know to call it this then, but now I know that's "Tree of Life--Abide in the Vine" thinking.

Larry, are you enjoying how your word ver anointing is being multiplied? --very cool. Hasn't reached my head but I sure am blessed by and enjoy watching those who've received it!!

Anonymous said...

SOZ,

Your lament over the feeling of not pleasing God touches my heart.

I have felt that way many times and sometimes still do but not to the degree of times past.

Recently there came to me a word of reasurance over such a feeling. I was lamenting in prayer over some internal issues and using the term fallen to describe myself to God when the inner voice that I now know was Holy Ghost told me that God never said that anyone is fallen. Now that didn't jive with what I have been told or what I had previously understood scripture to say. The following day several voices of others that I trust, Bishop included, confirmed what I heard without their knowing that they were doing such a thing for me. The day following that a scripture from Genesis jumped out and confirmed even further that God has never said anything he created is bad but only good. It is man that has said something about God's creation is bad. When we say such things we are speaking from the knowledge of the tree of good and evil. To say that I don't understand what is happening but I know it is good because God created it may be a better approach toward overcoming. If I believe that I am fallen then I have given myself an excuse to keep repeating what ever it is that I have percieved to be bad.

Ralph Marston's blog at 3:33 is another good approach to speaking from the tree of life. If we realize that we have just missed an opportunity to enhance our lives or those of our fellowman and look for the next opportunity to continue forward in that progress then we are living and not dying, risen and not fallen.

Perhaps that revelation was just for me personally because Father knew how much I needed it but I do believe it works better for anyone to see all of God's creation as good and I have heard a five fold minister in Conyers, Georgia say the same thing many times.

SOZ, I truly love you although I don't know you by aquaintance. You are a seeker who finds and much of what you share on this blog speaks tons about the goodness of God. In that I am sure that God is well pleased.

My all time favorite chapter in the Bible is Romans eight but it would not mean as much to me without Romans seven. I personally believe that many of the writers of scripture including Paul often spoke from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil to make the statement more understandable to the reader. In this it is important to remember that God creatd the tree of knowledge of good and evil and that it was good. Eve also saw that its fruit was good for food. We all know what food turns into but on its way to that destiny it enhances our life. Food is what we eat and life is what we live.

I want to know more about life and will according to God's mercy and grace. If I eat something that upsets my stomach sometime there is always forgiveness. Oh what a relief it is!

One of my favs from Stevie! Great song of redemption.

...singing songs of the redeemed...

When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion,
we were like men who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
"The LORD has done great things for them."

3 The LORD has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.

4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
like streams in the Negev.

5 Those who sow in tears
will reap with songs of joy.

6 He who goes out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him.

Psalm 126

Those who sow in tears shall surely reap in joy! God knows your heart, sees the "real" you, loves you without conditions, completely and forever. How good can it get?

Breath of God upon you!

Love your feedback all. But JB, I wonder if you've grasped what I'm really trying to say. I really am not lamenting for not pleasing God, neither am I giving myself or anyone a license to sin. I am overcoming by entering into His presence in spite of the evil or the good I try I produce in my flesh. It's all good though! We all are working out our own salvation with fear and trembling. Big heavenly hugs in the Lord! Love you all.

"JB, I wonder if you've grasped what I'm really trying to say. I really am not lamenting for not pleasing God, neither am I giving myself or anyone a license to sin."

Sorry for the way that sounded.
I know you understand the enthusiasm that can come when God gets something through to us. And I can be especially guilty of that sometimes because I have a promoting and sharing personality, probably because God intends that I promote Him. Any thoughts about these principals God is directing me to, could be examined more from audio sermons likeGod's Concept of Sin at

http://sigler.org/audio-gary.htm/

I want to apologize for coming off like that. And I know you'll say theirs no need to, but for me I wanted to say it. Especially in light of the revelation that came forth tonight! What an anointing. The Holy Spirit spoke something eternal tonight. God you are It.. I think we need to meditate on that peace and serenity that we can freely enter into, and tap into that.

Theirs a Glory in the air..Their's a tangible anointing of this serenity for us now.

To the brother in Texas tonight. My brother, you could not have allowed God to move any faster into your, what was that word tonight?, your life, your soul, your existence, your everything! ;than what is done by the stand taken in you now. Glory to God and the anointing upon you! May you rise up with fire and lightening underneath your wings now as God has established it.

I was praying today and I asked God who you all were. "God who are these people?". And in my spirit it immediately rose up:

"They are forerunners to the new age!"

This turning and movement in the Body to the true Christ, will not be a little here, and a little there. It will be a great fire! A burning lake of fire that God's flaming servants of fire will sustain.

My God we really are moving into Tabernacles! Living Temples of the character and nature of God. One of those fruits was so clearly revealed tonight. And if it's not fully manifest this moment, we are developing it by it being made known. We are overcoming with the faith to walk into this dawn. The truth of the gospel reawakened, which is love, and peace, and serenity, is flooding the earth with its light. And this will be a peaceful and serene awakening for them that believe. He is going before us and creating the now, by His Holy Spirit. How can we fail is He goes before us? And I'll say it again. You are the tip of the sword!

The word tonight was "naphsha"

Bishop,

Tonight’s service (Wed 1015) completely worked across the net, and clearly ITB. The message of Jesus’ serenity, light yoke, and that indeed , The Christ is the end, and beginning, as all created things are exhausted as the center - our words, agendas, influence, methods, are spent , allowing The Christ that envelopes all of Creation, that is inexhaustible, as our center.

During the message, The Holy Spirit invited me to rest. Probably couldn’t do this ITB, I grabbed all the pillows in the hotel room (nice fluffy ones) nestled into them on the bed, and finished listening to the message God spoke through you. As you went into the following phase of worship, I had a wonderful twilight listening and dreaming, waking again to the final song - beautiful, all is well with our soul.

After that, I got such a fun conversation with H.S. , following . Seems that as much as I enjoyed it, it also has value to the blog and touched on many things personally affecting people raised in the blog over the past days. In detail, He reminded me of the peace in my(all of ours) Spirit. He jostled with me ( this is for all of us) – I Love how you love what you love, what you feel fits you. It is passionate, real, at full steam, unlimited. There is nothing in that sphere you limit. In those areas you struggle, that even seem to derail you, you do not abandon. You are determined to find how they fit you, even if they drive you crazy.

You (we all ) see the aspects of yourself you love, and keep coming back to the aspects you do not. You pick them up, turn them around, keep trying to find how they fit, because you know Me, all that you have are from elements I placed in you, that you could fashion how you desired. Now you look at what you have fashioned, pleased with some, discouraged by others, and knowing they all are pieces of you and Me. As you (we all )know this, I love how you all keep going, pressing through, to the end and beginning. That end and beginning have definition for you all now, but neither is defined in the broadest scope, and mixed into your celebrations and your thorns in the detail, is the timelessness of who I am in all of you in the abstract. All of it is here. Be at peace, I am all of it and I am here.

ONE FOR THE GIRLS
One for the girls
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my shape to keep.
Please no wrinkles, Please no bags
And please lift my butt before it sags.
Please no age spots, Please no gray
And as for my belly, Please take it away.
Please keep me healthy, Please keep me young,
And thank you Dear Lord, For all that you've done.
GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU GIRLS/ WOMEN

The Christ becomes fully embeded, final beginning, when we exhaust all of our own created ideas, fears, doubts, and things we worship.

Larry from your post earlier:

Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like streams in the Negev.

Those who sow in tears
will reap with songs of joy.

He who goes out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him/


We are the treasure in the earthen vessel! We are returning to who we really are, the essence of God, thanks to the God! The seed of God is the treasure in our created beings, and the fire is burning us up to reveal us as precious stones. God is opening our books and writing living epistles, as we carry in the sheathes!

And Anon, I think a life-line like that is the best medicine to keep us young as well. Amen to that!

I

AM

THE DOOR

OF

THE SHEEP

JOHN 10:7

DOOR AS A SYMBOL OF ENTRY TO SAFETY

Home in all cultures symbolizes a place of safety. Going in and closing the door behind gives the members of the household security. The outside world with its hate and competition rages with violence and cruelty. At the end of this mad race one get back home and closes the door. You are surrounded by love and protection and care.

In our Bible talks last night we were discussing the saying of Jesus Christ "I AM THE DOOR!!!-- ONE of the example one of the members gave us about when you enter inside the house through the DOOR you find REST AND PEACE is in Psalm 91 Which clearly stated: Those who live in the shadow of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.9-If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your dwelling.11-For He orders His angels to protect you wherver you go.---------All of you know Psalm 91 make it one the Psalm you choose to Meditate on each Morning.
Peace and love to you all. Amen!
