Passion for the Invisible One

Let my people go, that they may worship me! – God, via Moses
I will not enter into my house, or go to my bed, I will not allow my eyes to sleep north eyelids to slumber until I have found a house for the Lord, a dwelling fit the Mighty One of Jacob! – Heart of David
Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. – Spirit of Elijah 
My House shall be called a house of prayer, but you have made it into a den of thieves! – Jesus Zeal for Gods house 
It’s good to be passionate about Invisible Things… the things of God, purity, prayer and true worship. It’s good to desire freedom from corrupt unjust governments, from filthy worship systems, from vain traditions, and from corrupt religious systems- for the cause of true worship. Passion for worship is ok!

How Do You Respond to the FIRE?

When we want God’s presence to manifest in our life or our community on a larger scale…

We first have to realize that no flesh will glory in His presence. Then when our fleshly (carnally selfish) ideas and attitudes are being burned by the fire of God, we will be EXCITED, not threatened. Then we might just EMBRACE God, not push His Holy Spirit away in favor of our cleverness…

How do you respond to the Fire?

How did Moses respond to the Fire? He stuck with the presence of God and talked with God face to face. The rest of the nation was fearful and did not want to get close to God… except Joshua.

How did Elijah respond to the Fire? He actually embraced the fire before it fell. He called it down and most of the nation was in fear of it because they barely knew God.

How did Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego respond to the Fire? The fire of persecution tried to get them to submit to Babylon, but they embraced the fire, and God was with them in it. It ended up burning their enemies, and God kept them alive.

Hebrews 12:29

For our God is a consuming fire.

1 Corinthians 1:29

That no flesh should glory in his presence.

Isaiah 33:14

The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

For more see:

1 Peter 3:7
Acts 2

Give Up Your Life to Save Others!

Every Elijah has an Ahab and Jezebel that wants to replace you and kill you. Every John the Baptist has a Herod and Herodias that wants to chop your head off so you can’t speak. PREACH THE WORD ANYWAY! Give Up Your Life to Save Others!

True Spiritual Light Forces the Spectacle of Hatred or the Miracle of Repentance

*[[Joh 3:20-21]] KJV* For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Jesus called us the light of the world, because we reflect Him. He also said to “marvel not” (don’t be amazed) if the world hates you. So if we are the light of the world, why does the world hate us?

The answer is found in John 3:20-21. Jesus Christ summarizes the psychological state of everyone in the whole world.

People that do evil hate the light – emotional opposition
They refuse to come to it – avoidance in action
Because their deeds are reproved – why? they want to avoid their actions being spoken against.

People that do the truth come to the light. – they dont avoid it
They want their deeds to be exposed as obedience to God.

So if sinners hide from the light, and we are the light, what is the link between people that do evil and people that do truth? One word- Repentance.

Repentance is when people who evil come to the light to get their deeds reproved and change their works to works done in God.

Repentance – the greatest miracle on earth. The only miracle that heaven rejoices over.

Jesus called John the Baptist a “burning and a shining light” and the “greatest man born of a women.” Greater than Elijah and Elisha, and all he did was get people to repent – without any other miracles.

Then he said that the least in the kingdom is greater than JtB. That means that those in the kingdom of heaven would get a lot of people to repent… Plus more. Jesus showed us this by example. Many repentant sinners followed Him, plus He did other miracles and healings.

Notice that the link between believers and unbelievers is not compromising or turning the light down. Its not subjugating your light to the darkness. Its the other way around!

Yes its the goodness of God that leads people to repentance. And its the obedient preacher that gives them something to repent from! Repentance is not achieved by our intelligence, but by a miracle of God in response to the foolishness of preaching.

Summary of Principalities and Strongholds that will Bow to Jesus Tonight in Detroit | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 1 –

Summary of Principalities and Strongholds that will Bow to Jesus Tonight in Detroit

This is a summary of the revelations of Principalities and Strongholds in Detroit that God has given me and my wife through dreams, interpretations, our testimony, and the Word of God. We will be sharing the testimony in our upcoming book.

A local Bishop asked me to send them to him because God had shown him something similar about 5 points of repentance that were needed in the church. So I listed them in a nice pretty outline, with some links to teachings on this blog about them. It was deep, I actually sent them on October 31, which happened to be the same day Martin Luther posted his 95 theses for the Reformation. I did’nt even know that at first. Now you get to see the outline!

These are things that we have been repenting about at DaHOP (Detroit Area House of Prayer).  Our basic premise is Matthew 16 and Matthew 18. The Church already has All the Authority. “If it’s bound, the Church bound it. If it’s loosed, the Church loosed it.” When our obedience is fulfilled, God can revenge all disobedience (2 Corinthians 10). Therefore, we must repent and allow God’s word to change our minds if we want to see change, because it’s mostly our fault (Daniel 9, iRepent). We must repent from:

  1. Tolerating Jezebel– Toleration of Compromise, Spiritual Fornication, Teaching Idolatry
    1. Music and Ministry that mixes, and partners with the World (fornication). Christian musicians and singers and preachers that partner with the world usually end up in spiritual or natural fornication or adultery, or divorced. The natural is just a reflection of what they’ve already done spiritually.
    2. Music and Ministry that copies and follows the World (teaching God’s servants to eat food that has been sacrificed to idols). The best way to teach is by example. If our singers, rappers, and musicians copy and remix with the world, they pollute the whole church.
    3. Detroit has been the prototype city for allowing our Levitical sons and daughters to be seduced by Jezebel instead of giving God pure worship. From mammon and politically focused preachers to our compromising singers, we let God’s Levites make music about money and adultery instead of worshipping Him.
    4. There is a famous Detroit pastor who sang, sold his sermons, charged exorbitant fees to speak, had several adulteries, broken marriages (apostasy is divorce), and had a baby by a 13 year old in his own congregation. He encouraged his daughter to mix with the world and sing soul music for money. All this was done in the 1930s and 1940s, and we tolerated it – even celebrated this. Now we have generations that worship talent instead of God, so they are easily deceived.
    5. Afterwards, Motown became the prototype record label to all the labels that exist now. Their first hit song was “Money, That’s what I want.” Their second was “Gotta Shop Around.” Idolatry and Adultery. Most of their musicians and singers were children from the Church. Even the Beatles first hit song was a Motown song (Money, That’s What I Want). The negative and positive influence of Detroit on the world is mind-boggling.
    6. Even some of our gospel music copies and steals from the world – rejecting God’s creativity. We think it reaches more people, but according to Jesus – Jezebel’s doctrine is the depths of satan.
    7. There are serious repercussions to tolerating Jezebel, some of the most serious repercussions in the 7 letters to the Churches Revelations 2-3.
    8. Lustful looks among men, Sexual Dress among women
    9. Jezebel Exposed (in the Church)
  2. Judas’s Pragmatism– Betraying the Will and Purpose of God by following our own Mind and doing “What Works”
    1. The Detroit region is a stronghold for pragmatism. The industrial mentality can become “pragmatic” which is an extreme version of practicality. Henry Ford was known to be very practical, and influenced by pragmatism. Obviously, practical thinking can be used for good. However, pragmatism as a philosophy can be very evil. Henry Ford was known to be anti-Semetic. We do not know if his pragmatic way of thinking was the cause of his anti-Semetism.
    2. “Enemies of the cross, mind earthly things” – Philippians 2. Practical thinking that is not rooted in obedience to God’s will is pragmatism and self-worshipping disobedience. Earthly mindedness leads to satan entering in your mind. Jesus called both Judas and Peter satan when they exhibited earthly mindedness.
    3. Judas was earthly minded. God got His will done anyway, but “woe to him that betrays the Son of man.” We betray the purpose of our single lives, our families, our ministries, our churches when we put our will to do what we think will work above the scripturally stated will of God for each ministry.
    4. We Are Responsible for Abortion (The Judas Kiss). Racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger got family planning and birth control accepted in the church for “pragmatic” reasons nearly 40 years before abortion was legalized. She had genocide in her philosophies, but she didn’t say it outright. In the name of women’s health, contraception, and family limitation, she convinced us that children were a loss, not a profit; we should limit our families to what we think we can afford pragmatically. Her motto in her publication – Woman Rebel was “No Gods, No Masters.” We let her in the church and loosed it with our own authority.
    5. Contrary to popular belief, Margaret Sanger was NOT pro-abortion, she was against abortion, and she promoted birth control and family limitation. The anointing of motherhood is the only thing that stops the spirit of abortion which comes from family limitation. The root of abortion is not a law, it’s a mindset of pragmatism related to family.
    6. Some of us lose the anointing for increase because we purposefully limit God’s increase of godly seed. Earthly mindedness makes us think backwards. Purpose creates income, income doesn’t create purpose.
    7. We can’t point at Democrats, or Republicans, Obama, or Perry/Cain/Ron Paul to end abortion when we have all the authority. We are above them. Get birth control and family planning out of the church and abortion falls in the government, guaranteed.
  3. Dog-tongues and Wolfpacks– Using Our tongues against our brothers, Ministries who’s purpose is to tear down and steal from other ministries
    1. Using our tongues like dogs. Speaking negatively about other people, other ministries, other races, other churches.
    2. In many churches, every sermon has a “diss” of someone elses ministry in it. “That big church” “That small church” “That Baptist dollar” “Those Holy rollers”. “White people”
    3. We have authority over the atmosphere in our city… so Why is our city so violent? How is gang warfare any different from using our tongues against other churches? Our mouths and especially our pulpits create atmosphere.
    4. Destroying Dog-tongues and Wolfpacks. We need to create a culture of thanksgiving, blessing, honor, and intercession for people made in the image of God.
  4. Dead Men’s Bones and Hypocrites– Worshipping Traditions and Dead Men instead of following the Holy Ghost
    1. Resisting the Holy Ghost instead of at least supporting the new things that God Sovereignly does in each generation. Traditions make the Word of God void of power. In the past Detroit has been one of the most tradition – loving cities.
    2. We need to honor the old, and support the new. Both the New Wine and the Old wine can be preserved.
    3. Return the hearts of the Fathers to the Children, and the Hearts of the Children to the Fathers.
    4. Dead Men’s Bones and Hypocrites – It affects the legacy of the next generation. We destroy our children spiritually when we don’t allow them to create new wineskins for God’s new wine to flow in.
  5. Division and Thieves: racial division and denominational division, not being a house of prayer for all nations.
    1. We need to stop being the world’s best example of racial division on every Sunday. It’s loosed in the world because it’s loosed in the Church. We need desegregation in the Church.
    2. Being a place where thieves can hide, instead of a house of prayer for every ethnic group. Our di-vision makes our vision smaller, and therefore we don’t feel the need to pray night and day for all nations.
    3. This is also related to Judas and Jezebel, because it has to do with the purpose of God for the Church, and also the Music Ministry. If thieves steal the house of prayer from the Church, it’s a den of thieves. If Levites can’t or won’t be employed to worship God day & night, Jezebel and Judas have victory over them and steals their calling.
    4. Real Unity – One Mind on Jesus and Mouth on Christ
    5. The House of Prayer for every nation requires unity, regionally and racially.
    6. A House of Prayer for Every Ethnos
    7. Dividing ourselves from each other instead of finding agreement in our different roles.
  6. *Bonus* Babylon Business Principles in the Kingdom of God: brand warfare, usury, false balances, manipulation, slavery, witchcraft (pharmakia)
    1. Building our brands over being concerned with people.
    2. Putting profit before truth.
    3. Defrauding each other to the point where we need lawyers to judge.
    4. Embracing usury and debt, enslaving Gods’ people.
    5. Not keeping communication and transactions in simplicity (Romans 12).
    6. The Fear of the Lord is the Key to Economic Development.
    7. Whiskey River?
    8. Spiritual Sharecropping.
    9. This one is a bonus, because originally I didn’t have it as an iRepent event. I saw it as a Christian business problem more than a church problem. But I included it here because I heard a local presentation – on how Industrial Sharecropping effectually continued some to the basic tenets of slavery in Detroit until the 1980s – that enlightened me to the possibility of spiritual sharecropping.
    10. The church has all authority, so if it’s loosed, it’s because we loosed it. If slavery lasted until the 1980’s here, then the Church here was responsible. We may need repentance in some of these areas of our business principles.

Where Sin Did Abound, May Grace Much More Abound! We believe that when these false heads and spiritual strongholds are repented of, chopped off, and destroyed, The Body will be able to put our full focus on Jesus Christ, the Beautiful One.

This has been a tough journey, so I feel like saying something really dramatic here… but I’ll just drop the mic and say “Amen.”

3 Main Doctrines that Jesus Hates

3 Main Doctrines Jesus HATES in the 7 Final Messages to His Church.

(They are similar):

1. Doctrine of Balaam: Set Stumbling Blocks before God’s people so they can:

A. Eat food (harmless substance) that has been sacrificed to false gods.

B. Commit Fornication (spiritual and physical)

2. Doctrine of Nicolaitanes: Conquering & Corrupting God’s people so they can:

A. Commit Fornication (spiritual, physical)

B. Eat food (harmless substance) that has been sacrificed to false gods.

C. Nicolaitanes is linked closely with doctrine of Balaam. Nicolaitanes means “ to conquer laity.”

3. Doctrine of Jezebel: False Prophetess, False Teaching, Seduces Gods people to:

A. Commit Fornication (spiritual, physical)

B. Eat food (harmless substance) that has been sacrificed to false gods.

Notice that all of these doctrines that Jesus HATES have the same goal, but accomplish it different ways.

Balaam is trickery. “Just try it this way, it’s okay.”

Nicolaitanes is forceful. “Do it! Your ___ if you don’t. It’s okay.”

Jezebel is seduction. “It’ll be alright, it feels good… it’s okay.”

Fornication: Sexual pleasure & contact outside of marriage. Sexual pleasure is derived from chemicals that flow through your brain and bloodstream. It can be stimulated by sight, touch, and other senses. It is derived from your mind, and therefore… your mind is in control of it. Stop it. (Colossians 3:5).

Spiritually, it is allegiance to any Gods other than the true God (Isaiah 23:17, Ezekiel 16:26). It can also mean financial business agreements with sin involved.

Eating food sacrificed to idols. The Bible is clear that there are harmless things that would be otherwise okay, if they weren’t offered up to demons (1 Cor 8, 1 Cor. 10:28). In our culture it’s hard to understand this because we don’t live the same way they did. In their culture, the priests of the idol “god” of the city would promote feasts, games, festivals, etc. It would be like a party or concert or festival “sponsored by Diana”, or “Zeus.” It was kind of like corporate sponsorship today. “The Olympics, brought to you by ACME Inc.” They didn’t have TV, Movies, CDs, or Radio, or Internet. Festivals like this were the main entertainment and pastime of cultures surrounding the New Testament.

Any Christian knows that a piece of chicken is just a piece of chicken. God made it, God owns it. Eat it if you’re hungry! But all over the New Testament (Acts 15:20,29, 1 John 5:21), God instructs His people to display their love for Him by refusing to eat food that had been openly and knowingly offered to false gods. It’s not about the food, it’s about your love for your true God and love for your neighbor in not to causing them to stumble by seeing and following your example.

Although health is an entirely different subject, there are really no “demonic chicken dinners” or “idolatry pizza parlors” around anymore. Nowadays, the idols of entertainment take harmless music, and lace it with demonic deception – lyrically. They take harmless movies, and sacrifice them – via the script to the false gods of greed, fornication, false religions, relativism, atheism, violence, theft, homosexuality, etc…

Beware of those doctrines that Jesus HATES! They will try anyway they can to get you to accept fornication, idolatry, and compromise:

Balaamites will trick you into compromise.

Nicolaitanes will force and corrupt you into compromise.

Jezebellians will teach and seduce you into enjoying compromise.

Stick with Jesus, your first love!
