7th Message: How to Sit With Jesus on His Throne!
A Message from Jesus to Lukewarm Christians that Don’t Change Anything
(Laodicean) Revelation 3:14-22

Jesus describes Himself:
1. THE AMEN- the So Be It.
Jesus is a PROMISE. Definite. Unshakeable. Unchangeable.
 2. Faithful and True Witness:
   Jesus Unceasingly represents and DECLARES Without Hiding  the Truthful Reality of what is happening.
3. Beginning of the Creation of God:
Jesus is the Chief element over, and the reason for the Creation. All things were BY Him, THROUGH Him, and FOR Him.

Why did Jesus describe Himself in this way to this Laodicean group of Christians?
He did it because they weren’t changing anything. Jesus Changes things. He’s the AMEN: a promise, so circumstances adjust to Him. He’s a Faithful and True Witness who won’t keep silent on Truth. He originated the whole creation, He is the definition of change and movement and growth.

I KNOW, and am intimately acquainted with: your WORKS (enough to taste them). You are neither cold nor not. So, because you are lukewarm, I will spit you out of my mouth.

What do people feel when they drink cold drinks? They feel energy move and it changes their temperature.
What do people feel when they drink something hot? It moves energy and changes their temperature.

Jesus is saying that the WORKS of these Christians weren’t changing anything, they just fit in, they were accepted, the didn’t rock the boat, didn’t challenge anything that was going on, they didn’t cause any energy to be stirred up in their surroundings. They didn’t represent Jesus at all.

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. 

Jesus wants us to change things that surround us- sometimes with compassion, making a difference in people’s lives – sometimes with fear and hatred of sin (warning people about consequences of disobedience to God). What Jesus does NOT want us to do is just fit in with the world, not saying anything or changing anything.

This group of Christians was lukewarm- they fit in perfectly, they didn’t change anything around Him. They didn’t represent Jesus as the AMEN (a certain promise), as a Faithful Witness (not afraid to speak the truth about what is going on), or as the Originator of Creation (the Root and Cause of all things).

Yet, they were “blessed and prosperous.” They obviously had increases in material wealth, and they bragged about it.

But Jesus looked at them with spiritual eyes: He called them poor (spiritually), wretched, miserable, blind, and naked (spiritually).

Jesus sees things VERY differently from the obvious physical appearance. Jesus always sees into the spiritual realm of all His people.

Jesus counsel: He uses things they can understand. He tells them to solve their spiritual problems with spiritual solutions.
1. BUY from me GOLD tried in the FIRE (1 Peter 1:7). FAITH that goes through tribulation is spiritual GOLD. “Don’t make it easy for yourself. Don’t run away from challenges and trials. Believe me for something harder than riches. Believe me in tough circumstances where you don’t fit in with everybody. Believe me for something that’s not easy, like changing your surroundings.
2. BUY from Me WHITE RAIMENT. White raiment is righteousness. Righteousness is given to us by our faith in Christ. But it is also righteous acts (Revelation 19:8). Stop fitting in with the world, do things right. Do righteous acts.
3. ANOINT EYES with EYESALVE, that you may see. Seek God for the anointing of the Holy Ghost to give you spiritual insight. (Ephesians 1:17). The reason you fit in is because you can’t see anything different. The reason you think you’re all good when you are really wretched, blind, miserable and naked, is because you CAN’T SEE spiritual things at all. Anoint your spiritual eyes to see spiritual realities. Everything is NOT all good. Things need to change around here!

As many as I LOVE… I rebuke and chasten, therefore be ZEALOUS and REPENT.

Jesus comforts us, telling us that the reason He rebukes us and chastens us is love for us. He tells us to Be Zealous. If you are used to fitting in, repent, change and be Zealous. Lukewarm Christians that don’t change the spiritual atmosphere or change anything might start making fun of you for being zealous, but JESUS wants you to be zealous! I’ll stick with Jesus.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

The Invitation is open. Jesus is actively looking for people to eat with and be with. Jesus only likes people that change things in the spiritual atmosphere (He spits the lukewarm out of his mouth).

PROMISES to those that OVERCOME!:

“If you overcome lukewarmness, fitting in, and not changing anything, and you instead become ZEALOUS, with FAITH (spiritual money and spiritual riches), RIGHTOUSNESS (spiritual white clothing), and ANOINTED EYESALVE (spiritual eyesight):

Not only will you be a member of my kingdom in heaven, but I will let you sit with me on my throne…. Like I overcame, and am sitting with my Father in His throne.


That will be awesome!

If you have spiritual ears, please pay attention and meditate these things!

6th Message: How to Be THE CLOSEST to God the Father!
A Message from Jesus to Patient Christians
(Philadelphia) Revelation 3:7-13

Jesus describes Himself:
1. He that is Holy – transcendently beautiful, perfect, and separate
2. He that is True – no lie in Him
3. He that has the Key of David – Has authority as King of Jerusalem, spiritually and naturally.
4. The exclusively opens and shuts doors – Is in control of all opportunities. “I’m heaven’s bouncer, booking agent, manager, HR, connecter, rainmaker, etc…”

Why does Jesus describe Himself this way to this Church? Jesus is speaking a message of encouragement and assurance to a patient group of Christians; He is telling them that He is Trustworthy, In TOTAL Control, and Has no bad motives towards them in keeping them waiting.

Jesus Knows and is INTIMATELY acquainted with:
– their works. So He gives them an Open Door. NO Man can shut it, or take this opportunity away from them.
 – they have a little strength
 – they kept His Word
 – they have not denied His name.

He will make fake artificial Christians:
1. Come and worship God before the Patient Christian’s feet.
2. Know how much God loves the Patient Christians in this church.

Because you kept the Word of God’s patience:
– God will keep them from the tribulation.

Instructions: Hold TIGHTLY to what you already have!
1. Word- The Words of Jesus.
2. Name – the Name and authority of Jesus. Commitment to Him.
3. Patience.
Hold on to these things so no one takes your crown (reward).

Promises if you Overcome:
1. I will make you a pillar in God’s temple, you will stay there.
2. I will write God’s name on you.
3. I will write the name of God’s city on You.
4. I (Jesus) will write my Brand New Exclusive name on you.

The patient Christian that overcomes (maintains and hold’s on to the patience of Christ, trust in God’s Word, and trust in God’s name); will be built into God’s temple (be closest to God. They will also be branded with:
God’s name.
God’s city.
Jesus’s brand new name.

Name stands for authority and identity.

So over and above being a member of heaven:
 You will be build into part of the temple- be closer to God.
 You will have God’s name, and the name of God’s city.
 And Jesus’s new name as your “name brand.”

That’s sweet! You get to represent God more than anyone else in heaven!

Obviously patience is very important to the heart of the Son of God.

1. Notice that Jesus said NOTHING BAD about this patient group of Christians.
2. Notice how many good things he gave them:
– An Open door. Exclusive opportunities that nobody can take away.
– Fake Jews bowing down
– Being vindicated by God’s love before fake Jews
– Being protected from the greatest tribulation to come on the whole world
3. On top of all that, if they overcome (and keep Jesus’ Patience, Word, and Name), they get to be closest to God, be branded with His names, and represent God more than anyone in heaven.

PATIENCE & Faith in God’s Word and Name – VERY IMPORTANT.

If you have a heart that can hear and understand spiritual things, please PAY attention to what the Spirit is saying to the Churches- this is Deep and Important.

5th Message from Jesus – How to Stay Saved and Keep Your Name in the Book of Life!

5th Message: How to Stay Saved and Keep Your Name in the Book of Life!
A Message from Jesus to the Dead Christians
(Sardis) Revelation 3:1-6

Jesus describes Himself: I Own the Church and I know what’s going on in it.
1. I have the Seven Spirits of God
2. I have the Seven Stars. (The 7 Messengers of the Church).

Jesus Knows:
1. Your works
2. You have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. You have branded yourself to be alive but its just an image. You are hanging around the Churches, going through the motions, but you are spiritually dead. I know, I’m the One really in charge.

Your Instructions:
1. Be watchful. Watch and Pray.
2. Strengthen the things which remain, that are not dead yet. Why? I have not found your works mature before God
3. Remember what you heard before, hold on to them, and repent.

IF You don’t watch, you won’t know when I (Jesus) am coming back.

That’s the 2nd time Jesus told the dead Christians to watch and pray.
41: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26

Be Aware! Watch and see what is going on, and then pray to God about what you see.
Instead of being spiritually asleep, watch!
Good things about this Church: They have a few names that have not defiled their garments (have not slipped into an unrighteous lifestyle after being saved).
Promise: They will walk with Jesus in white.
-White garments symbolize your righteousness.
-There were only a FEW Christians in Sardis that were still living in their righteousness.
-Those are the ONLY individuals that will walk with Christ in white.

He that Overcomes (their spiritual deadness and unrighteous acts)
1. Will be clothed in white raiment: (righteousness).
2. Jesus will NOT blot their name out of the book of life. (Meaning that if they don’t overcome, He WILL blot their name out of the book of life). Jesus already had plans to blot their name out of the book of life, but if they overcome, He won’t.
3. He will confess their name before God the Father and His angels.

If you have a heart to listen and understand, please pay attention, concentrate, and take heed to the deeper meanings that the Spirit seeks to express to many different groups of Christians.

If Jesus says that He can blot your name out of the Book of Life, that means He can do it. Jesus doesn’t make vain threats, or waste His words.

If you are a “dead” Christian; You are in church, and have a name that you are alive, but are really DEAD, then YOU NEED TO OVER COME THIS PROBLEM. If you are with a group of Christians where most of you are spiritually dead and living unrighteous, you need to solve this problem.

Otherwise you may get your name blotted out of the book of life by Jesus.

How to Overcome:
1. You need to watch:
a. Be Spiritually aware instead of asleep.
b. Pray about what you see.
2. You need to strengthen yourself in the spirit.
a. Through Prayer in the Spirit
b. Rich study of God’s Word
c. Fasting.
3. Don’t defile yourself with corruption or unrighteous acts.
a. Live righteously in real life everyday.
b. Develop a hatred for things that are unclean to God.

Some people think: “Once Save always Saved.”

They think because they prayed a prayer a long time ago, or they were baptized as kids, or because they still go to church and have a name that they are alive, that everything is okay and they are righteous in God’s sight.

Well, Jesus said that He owns the Spirits of God and the Messengers of the Churches. He knows who really is living righteous and clean. He saved you for a relationship with Him, not to put your name in a membership.

If you have a “name,” image, or brand that you are alive spiritually, but you really are dead spiritually: you need to repent, watch, pray, strengthen, and stop defiling your righteous spiritual white clothes with filthy actions.

If you overcome this “dead” Christianity, you will be really righteous in Christ’s eyes, and Jesus will keep your name in the book of life. Otherwise, He’ll blot it out.

A Message from Jesus to Patient Christians
(Philadelphia) Revelation 3:7-13

This Story is So Disgusting I Really Don’t Want to Type it

So I just copy and paste it!
This literally made me cringe when I first heard it, and I squirm every time I think about it.

Do you know how an ESKIMO kills a WOLF up North in the Arctic snow?

He dips a sharp knife in the warm blood of a dead moose. The blood freezes. He dips it again and freeze another layer of blood onto it. He dips it again and does it several times until there are several layers of blood on this sharp knife.

At nighttime, he buries the handle in the snow, leaving the sharp blood-covered blade pointed upwards. He goes to bed.

Along comes a wolf who sniffed out the blood from a mile away… He loves the scent and taste of it, and begins to lick the blade. He’s thinking he’s lucky to have found a tasty treat. He licks, and licks harder and faster, and licks the blade up and down… He’s not noticing the fresh lacerations and cuts on his tongue. It tastes so good – and it’s so cold – the wolf doesn’t notice that soon: he’s licking his own blood. His own blood is freezing onto the blade, but he keeps licking it furiously, thinking he wants to get all this tastiness.

In the morning, the Eskimo returns to find a dead wolf, lying in his own blood.

SIN is the same way. Satan leaves us blades covered with stuff that we like, and we lick ourselves to death… Thinking that we are Enjoying Life.

We keep licking the lust & pornography…We keep licking the wicked music… We keep licking wicked entertainment… We keep licking that person we aren’t married to… We keep licking drugs & drunkenness… We keep licking fear and hatred and groupism.

We think “It tastes good”, “It’s not that deep”, “It’ll be okay,” “I’m smart/grown/religious/not religious – I can handle it.” We don’t know that we’re DYING in sin.

That’s why Jesus said: “If you do not repent, you will die in your sins.”

Jesus wasn’t mad at you when He said that.. He said that because he felt sorry for you… You are like a dying dog, enjoying the blade that kills you.

Jesus came to set you free from all that! He can change your heart. You don’t have to enjoy sin and kill yourself on it. Stop licking the blade!

Jesus took the sin blade for you, then conquered it and conquered satan by rising from the dead. Now you don’t have to fall into the same trap and die in your sins.

If you believe this, you should be constantly saying and confessing “I Believe in Jesus as who He said He was, the God sent solution to my problems and the world’s problems” And stop killing yourself. Follow Jesus, and Jesus only.

dj SOS 2008 Albums of the YEAR!

I know I’ve been slacking on the reviews for a minute, but no mas. Here’s my 2008 albums of the year:
Hip Hop:
Lecrae “Rebel”
Hands down… it hit top 10 on itunes, was #4 in Jet magazine… it made a lot of noise, and it was worth it. Lyrically, better than ever, Musically HOT, production top notch. You gotta get all the songs on this album!
Kiki Sheard “Bold Right Life”
This album is IMPECCABLE. I haven’t heard such a solid album in a long time. It’s like Canton Jones Password: You literally don’t have to skip ANYTHING. In this album Kierra shows that she is not just a talented singer, but a leader and voice for her generation, who is humbly seeking to follow Jesus. Uncompromisingly exalting the name of Jesus, she is bold enough to glorify Him exclusively and on purpose. THIS ALBUM IS FULL  OF HITS. The production is FIRE, its a djs dream!
Gospel Choir
Tye Tribbett  “Stand Out”
THIS ALBUM IS ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS EVER. Tye Tribett just keeps getting better and better; probably because He stays focused on Jesus! He goes deep into Rock and worship for a few songs, has the gospel songs, and even raps in his first hip hop song! This album has so many styles, it keeps your attention the whole album. Tye Tribbett is a visionary leader, and a Faithful Witness to the Word of God.
Worship Rock
Shana Wilson “The Nations Are Waiting… LIVE IN WORSHIP”
Yes I’m a dj, but in my home life I listen more to worship rock music. Shana Wilson’s album is FIRE all the way through. She mixes the gospel vibe with the rock vibe… This is quality music to focus your heart on God. Its right up there with Delirious?, IHOP.org stuff, and Hillsongs. My wife tells me not to play it when she is doing something because she can’t do anything but seek God and pray when this album is on! You need to pick it up!
Dietrick Haddon “Revealed”: Every Deitrick album is a Banger. Period.
Ambassador “Milk to Meat”: Solid, Weighty, Lyrically Excellent. I envy the FRUIT Ambassador’s ministry has. (With a Godly Jealousy:-)
2103 “Total Attention”: Very Very Very good album.
Flame “Our World Redeemed” Not just Joyful Noise, the whole album is chock full of hits.
Mary Mary “The Sound”: The hits are SO hitting.
Trip Lee “20/20” : Lots of good songs, lots of good teaching, and some bona fide hits.
Stuff on My list to Get SOON and I’m Excited about it!
K-Drama “Boom Baptism”
Leon Timbo
