Integrity comes from the Heart

Intelligence has nothing to with integrity. Integrity has to do with a soft heart towards conviction and a love for the truth.

You can walk in integrity and love whether you are artsy, nerdy, handy, or strategic. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds people up.

The Inquisition and Slavery

Did you know that most of the heretics burned during the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisition were Negro Jews? As a matter of fact, chattel slavery and even the public lynchings of Negroes in America was DIRECTLY connected to the inquisition of Sabbath keeping Negro Jews in Europe.

Many American Negro lynchings were done on Sundays as a form of community worship, EXACTLY as the burnings of Negro Jews in Europe was done by the Roman Catholic Inquisition.

How did the Portuguese know where to find slaves for the Transatlantic slave trade? Because the slaves were mostly descendants of Jews that they had already exiled to West Africa! By the way, Negro is a Latin word for Black. Why would Americans use a Spanish word to describe an African people?

How does this relate to bible prophecy and the Gospel of the Kingdom?

Don’t Retaliate: Love your Enemies

Elijah killed 152 soldiers with fire just for coming at him wrong.

Elisha tore up 42 children with bears just for disrespecting him.
They were anointed, but they were still just fleshly, sad, and angry humans. In the New covenant, we are filled with the Holy Spirit. 
The anointing should be respected but the anointing should not retaliate! Separation is okay if necessary, but retaliation is not okay.
Jesus taught: Love your enemies, pray for them that hate you… Overlook transgressions and sneak disses. You will give God more GLORY that way!

Prophets Aren’t Perfect, but the Word of God is.

Elijah & Elisha were far from perfect in their deliveries and personalities, but they always called down fire from heaven and called people back to the commandments of YAHUAH Elohim. That’s why I’ll never hate on the Spirit of Elijah when I hear it. I appreciate the fire of God.

Jude 1
22 And of some have COMPASSION, making a DIFFERENCE:
23 And others save with FEAR, pulling them out of the fire; HATING even the GARMENT spotted by the FLESH.

Its okay to have compassion and make a difference.
Its also okay to preach the fear of God and hate fleshly garments.

When you teach and preach the Word with patience and love: rebellious people ignore the Word. “It’s too boring, your not anointed, I’ll go some where else.”

When you teach and preach the Word with boldness and fire: rebellious people reject the Word. “It’s too harsh, you don’t have any love, you’re pushing people away.”

When you mix the Word with marketing gimmicks, personal pride, ungodly music, seduction, covetousness: Rebellious people love it because you have completely removed the conviction from it. Now they don’t have to change anything about their lives until they feel like it.

The humble respond to the Word differently than the rebellious. Seek to be humble to the Word and don’t worry about how rebellious people respond to it.

Prophets aren’t perfect, but the Word of God is. You don’t have to follow hypocrites, but you do have to respect, obey and readjust your life to the Word of God. Harden not your heart. Excuses won’t save you. Humility and obedience will.

Psalm 34:2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad

The Humble Shall Hear

When you preach the Word with patience and love – rebellious people will say you are soft, boring, and not a leader.

When you preach the Word with boldness and fire – rebellious people will say you are harsh and mean, with no love.

When you mix the Word with gimmicks, seduction, compromise, and pride – rebellious people love it because now they don’t really have to change all the way!

Dont mix the Word with pride. Be a humble doer of the Word. Preach for God and don’t worry about the rebellious. The humble will hear and be glad!

Psalm 34:2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad

Moderation and Modesty

Men of God: it’s more glorious to display your moderation than to display your power.
Women of God: it’s more glorious to display your modesty than to display your beauty.

WE ARE DONE! – I’m getting a DEBTSECTOMY.

I know a lot of people that don’t know me won’t expect this but I just had the talk with my wife and now I have to let it be known. WE ARE DONE! I’m blessed and satisfied and happy with what I have, but I can’t take anymore. 

We are thankful for all the little blessings that God has given us over the past 10 years, and now we are going to move on to the next phase in our life.  

And just in case you don’t think I’m serious about this, I’ve already scheduled my appointment with the surgeon in May… So a few weeks before our 10th anniversary I am going to be going in for my DEBTSECTOMY.

Yep, I’m going under the knife. That way, my pen won’t work, and the ink just won’t flow to sign any more loans. No more cute little credit cards. No more little precious lines of credit crying in the night. No more beautiful car notes greeting me with a smile when I come home from work. No more precocious and maturing mortgages eating everything that comes into the house. 

From now on, if we can’t save for it and get it with CASH, I just won’t buy it. We’ll even make our own if we have to. 

We are officially DONE adding any more of these little bundles of debt and we can’t wait to see the ones we already have grow up and leave our household forever!
