ICYMI: iRepent for buying & selling in the temple

ICYMI: iRepent for buying & selling in the temple

For years I sold ministry (concerts, parties, conferences, etc). My wife and I also bought and sold merchandise in congregations. Over time God has shown me that this is wrong and is against what He commanded. We repented and completely stopped doing this in 2013.

We have repented to God and to all of you. We have been testifying against our actions ever since, but if you didn’t know, now you know! Please forgive us for this grievance. God’s house should be a house of prayer and focus on God, not on buying and selling to one another – creating a place where thieves can hide out.

Jesus was the Son of God made flesh walking in full power and authority and NEVER ONE TIME did he sell ministry. The wealth and offerings that people gave Him was of their own wisdom, will, and desire.

Many people may not agree, but the scriptures are very clear:

John 2: 16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.

Mark 11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

iRepent: I Renounce my Pledge of Allegiance

FYI:

I hereby renounce my pledge (oath) of allegiance to the flag of the U.S.A. that I ignorantly made during my childhood and early adulthood in state sponsored schools and churches.

My yes is yes and my no is no. YES I will obey the laws of the nation and state, and city, but NOT if they contradict the laws of the Kingdom of God.

YES I will speak up for the justice and the righteousness of the Kingdom of God.

Disconnect your Heart from this wicked system before it’s too late.

Denounce your pledge of allegiance today!

Join the Kingdom of God!

– Copy and Paste today if this is your testimony.

Why?

A lot of modern American Christians are blinded and stuck, choosing PATRIOTISM over REPENTANCE because they are not aware that we are still living in a remix of the Roman Empire.

The Roman Empire knows how to not only conquer you PHYSICALLY (Military and Police), and MENTALLY (Educational Indoctrination and Greco Roman Arts & Entertainment Culture)… but also SPIRITUALLY.

The Roman Empire has MASTERED the witchcraft of using pledges and vows to ensnare and trap souls into allegiance and SPIRITUAL error. This is why you see Western culture is full of secret societies, fraternities, and sororities… meanwhile our marriage covenants are just paper.

This is also why we were conditioned to DISOBEY the Lord Jesus by reciting the PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE to the American Flag.

It’s one thing to fill someone’s mind with false knowledge. It’s a whole another level to ensnare their spirit with vows, pledges, and oaths.

This is why Jesus Instructed His Disciples:

Matthew 5:33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:
35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for WHATSOEVER IS MORE THAN THESE COMETH OF EVIL.

Jesus knew that the Roman Empire was going to be a Sneaky Beast unlike any other. He knew that it would combine every element of physical, mental, and spiritual force to ensure its complete domination of the earth.

Forcing people to swear allegiances, pledges, and vows was one of the main strategies used to ensnare and take people captive spiritually.

Many Christians were MURDERED for refusing to swear oaths of allegiance to the Roman Empire, and they were NOT ASHAMED.

Apostolic Wisdom confirms this teaching:

James 5:12 But above all, my brothers, DO NOT SWEAR, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under CONDEMNATION.

I invite you to RENOUNCE your pledge of Allegiance to the USA flag that you may have made in your past.

It will set your spirit FREE, and prepare you for a DELIVERANCE that you didn’t even know you needed. It will also PREPARE your heart for the troubled times to come!

iRepent: To the “Black” Hebrew Israelites… Please do more research.

My advice is to be careful with the whole “black hebrew israelite” doctrines. I don’t think they are really valid scripturally, I think its a doctrine created from pain and oppression. First of all, you are not black. Nor are you a Hebrew unless you are in Christ.

1st thing: correlation does not equal causation.

God’s laws apply to all people in principle, not just the Jews. Sin creates death just like gravity pulls you down. So just because Africans have been enslaved and appear to be walking in the curses of Deuteronomy doesn’t mean we are physically the seed of Abraham.

What’s more important is that we become spiritually the seed of Abraham. The spiritual seed of Abraham is by faith in Christ, not by bloodline or “race.”
Number 2: Race is a created construct of man. Its not reality. God never created race. God created languages, which turned into families, tribes, nations, etc. So any doctrine based on race is founded upon a presupposition of error. Race is an invention and device of man to manipulate and control you with sorcery. You don’t base any biblical doctrine on race… if you do, you’ll be on shaky ground.

If African based people are the children of Israel, then all of them would have to be. Or which ones are, which ones aren’t?

What about Native Americans… are they the people of Israel too because they have been oppressed and abused?

Overall: when you look at the oppression of man, your looking at the work and evil of man.
Physical Israelites know who they are based on Heritage and Language: As far as the Jews – most cultures are well established and a lot of people know who they are because their family history goes back thousands of years. Jewish culture is well established, they have written records, a long line of rabbis, etc. If you don’t think a Jew is Jewish, just go ask them and find out.

Part of the reason I don’t think that non-Jewish Africans are Jewish, is because non-Jewish Africans don’t know that they’re Jewish. If they were Jewish they would have a historical record of that, like the Ethiopian African Jews. Jewish culture is big on remembrance, records, and history. They actually know they are Jewish and have record of it.

Jews traveled and spread their faith even before Jesus came , so yes there is evidence of Jewish style customs in other cultures, that doesn’t mean everybody that converted to Judaism is a physical seed of Abraham.

I’ve read of Oluadah Equiano who said when he read the bible he saw some familiar customs to his homeland before he was sold into slavery. However he never claimed to be Jewish. We all came from Adam and had a basic idea of sacrifices and cleanness.

Nowhere in history do you see any record of Jews not knowing who they were, even when carried away captive to other nations and as slaves. Also if those being cut off from their heritage were jews… that would mean that there are nations all over the western portion of Africa that have historical records that they are Jewish. The slaves came from tribes in the western portion of Africa. Where are those records?

Also, if God split the people of Babel up by language, then you have to show me the cultures in Africa that speak or write a language that looks like Hebrew. That would be an effective way to prove that the lost tribes of Israel are in or from Africa. However, no one has any proof of any other nations speaking Hebrew other than Israel.

How did American Racism Start?

Because America operates on a caste system based on race. When slavery first started out in America, it was just regular slavery. There were Irish slaves, Native American slaves, slaves from all over Europe, and most were temporary.

When former slaves started demanding more rights as citizens, rich landowners began a divide and conquer strategy. This is where race began and racism started. They took away the few rights that the African based slaves had and gave more rights to the European-based slaves.

This made “black” slavery into a permanent state enforced by governmental law. The racial caste system continued even after slavery was officially ended in the form of Jim Crow, lynching, destruction of successful African American communities, redlining, war on drugs, white flight, etc.

Racism is mostly based on the corruption of what is done, and wickedness and greed of man. Racism is not punishment for African people for refusing to keep the law of Moses. Ecclesiastes says “Marvel not when you see a oppression in a province, because there is someone higher than they are.”

If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province,marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.
There is always somebody higher than the oppressors… and He sees everything.

Don’t Internalize the Sorcery of Racism

My recommendation is for everyone who is descended from Africa and doesn’t know exactly which tribe or nation is just to call themselves African- based, or African-American. To me that is important because it connects you to a land that God gave your forefathers, Not to a “race” caste-based system that was invented by wicked men to oppress you.

Freedom is found by continuing to mature in obedience to the Word of God. Liberty is found by following after the Holy Spirit – the Spirit of Liberty. You become a seed of Abraham and part of the blessing to all the families of the earth by believing in the Messiah Yeshua aka Jesus Christ – no matter what tongue, tribe, language or nation you descend from. We are all one Body in Christ.

Don’t turn a house of prayer into a den of thieves!

Just like in the bible, its the same today. Grievous wolves have entered into the flock of God, and turn prophets into prostitutes for a profit. What can we do?

Matthew 21: 12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.

BUILDING A HOUSE OF PRAYER

We need to separate the selling and publishing from the worship. It needs to be done at separate times and separate places. In worship people should be able to give and receive freely.

Why? Jesus turned over the tables in the temple and he said “you have turned my fathers house of prayer into a den of thieves.”

DOES THIS MEAN SELLING IS EVIL?

This doesn’t mean that Christians cannot sell at all. If that’s the case, then anytime two saints got together they couldn’t do any business. Jesus specifically went into the temple, the place that was set up for worship and prayer and made this declaration: my house shall be called a house of prayer, but you made a den of thieves.

Is selling a sin? Is publishing a sin? No, not according to Psalms 68:11 or Proverbs 11:26.

However, selling and publishing do need to be separated from worship and prayer.

HOW DO THIEVES HIDE? WHY DO WOLVES MASK THEMSELVES?

If you look at a group of sheep in the temple and instead of thinking “what can I feed them?” or “what can I give them?” you think “what can I sell them,” then you are a wolf or you will soon become a wolf. A Shepherd is thinking about feeding the flock not making a profit off of them.

Yes it’s okay for shepherds to get paid but the system that God has set up for ministers to get paid is tithing and offering, not buying and selling. Even Jesus had financial supporters (Luke 8:3).

Tithing and offering is the primary way to fund any ministry. It’s not a sin to sell or publish according to Proverbs 11:26, and Psalms 68:11. But those things have to be clearly separated from the house of prayer.

If you have a publishing company then sell it somewhere else, not at the church. Sell through a website. Sell in a public place. Sell at a concert. Not at a church or temple.

Also think about this: when you sell in the temple, wolves smell blood. Their appetite gets turned back on. Thieves think: “I can do that too, even better!” Then they hide in the temple waiting for their chance.

Let’s say you go to a church and you sell a product that is 100% pure. What if a false apostle sees your example, figures out that he is more talented than you, and then decides to sell a product that is 85% pure? Now the church has been corrupted.

That’s why it’s not a good idea to sell products or advertise brands in the church temple or house meeting. Jesus is the brand and Gods Word is the message. Even a 100% pure biblical product can eventually be corrupted by making room for someone with the wrong motives.

WHAT ABOUT CONCERTS?

I have definitely changed a lot of what I’ve done in the past. I used to promote concerts and sell CDs and I would rent churches and regular venues alike.

Nowadays i wouldn’t even sell my book in a church i spoke at. I would not even push it, if someone asked about it I’d tell them to check my website or meet me at my car. I might give some away. When God teaches me something I try to figure out ways to obey, not ways to do the same thing I did before.

In some situations a concert is different, but if it’s at a church and it’s promoted to the church, isn’t it really a church event? If its not, why are tithes and offerings being used to fund a concert venue? If a concert is a church event then it’s a not a good idea to sell there.

If a concert is specifically a publishing event, not at a church then I’d say it’s okay to publish and sell at it.

We need to turn the house of prayer into a house of prayer, not selling, publishing or even branding. Even if it’s a 100% pure biblical product.

BUT WE ARE THE TEMPLE, THE BUILDING DOES NOT MATTER

True, our bodies are the temple of God. But Jesus is also clear that there are church gatherings that are to be set aside for church purposes. He is also clear that his house of prayer was a temple and was to be set aside for certain purposes.

I don’t think Jesus was doing a great acting job. I don’t think he was joking around. I don’t think he was giving a false prophecy. I think he was giving us part of his heart. I think obedience to his heart will help to lead us into the greater fulfillment of his word which is our bodies becoming a house of prayer also.

DOES EVERYTHING WITH A SCRIPTURE ON IT HAVE TO BE FREE?

It would be great if all bibles, books, and musical recordings were free. However, that is not a clear scriptural mandate. I try to focus on what is clear in the Bible.

My focus in this discussion is on the purpose of the temple of God. It’s not a place to rack up profits on products and brands but it’s a place to serve, give, pray, and worship. That’s what’s clear scripturally so that’s enough to make our hearts clean.

IMAGINE

What would happen if all church bookstores were converted into prayer rooms?

What would happen if the motivation for the preacher was not to sell his latest book but to say what God is saying?

What if the church focused on discipling all believers and letting them operate in whatever gifts they had instead of getting some “special” people to pay extra MONEY for “extra” training?

I believe if we start taking God’s word more seriously, soon He will start to take our churches more seriously.

Daniel 9: iRepent | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 23 –

iRepent

We have been doing a series of events leading up to the Call called iRepent. We will be seeking to achieve the great repentance that is necessary to turn our city and nation around. Through the past couple of years, my wife and I have been shown – thru dreams, real life experiences, and by scriptures – the main principalities and powers that dominate our city and prevent revival and awakening in America. The Church is completely responsible, because Christ gave  us  all of the authority. So we have to turn our hearts to God in order to excercise that authority correctly.   

One of the main points that God keeps emphasizing is that Daniel turned a nation repenting and praying all by himself! He saw what was happening according to scripture. He responded in fasting, prayer, sackloth and ashes. God responded by sending Him one of the highest ranking angels. God used His response of faith and humility to get His will done on earth. He also revealed to Daniel even more mysteries for further down the line of history.

Read Daniel 9.

Some of the main points:

Daniel got deep revelation of scripture. – Daniel responded to the Word of God with fear and trembling. He dove so deep into it that he realized it was time for its fullfillment. Then He responded with full knowledge of the seriousness of what Israel had done, knowing all the sins they have committed and how serious they were. He didn’t gloss over anything, because He understood the book of Jeremiah and the Torah.

Daniel knew His role. – Daniel understood the God/Man partnership. God is Sovereign and Man has been given authority. He knew He was responsible to pray into the will of God. He knew God presented His word not just to be heard, but to be interacted with, and engaged in, and acted upon.

Daniel repented by himself! – One man turned a nation by repentance, prayer, sackcloth, and ashes. What can you do by yourself to turn your city or nation to God and have the highest ranking angels fight for God’s will, and trumpet a message in response to your words?

Daniel repented for things he didn’t even do. – Daniel repented on behalf of his whole nation and took responsibility. Oftentimes its our little sins that allow the world to release big sins against us. We give the devil an inch in us, and that gives him a mile in the culture, and he can send his enemies after you according to what you did. But you can even turn your heart to God concerning the things you didn’t do. You can sigh and cry and fast and pray for any abominations done, and God will respond and reward you.

Daniel repented physically as well as spiritually. – Daniel understood the principle “First the Natural, then the Spiritual.” He didn’t just pray it and say it. It got deep in his mind, and then it changed his emotions as well. Then he changed his clothes from fancy clothes to rags (sackcloth). He put dust on his face (ashes). He stopped eating pleasant food, choosing to avoid meats, sweets, and maybe even bread (Daniel 11 fast). Maybe he only ate raw food for a time (Daniel 1 fast). He may have even went all-water for a couple of days (water fast). He got physical with his turning to God.

God responded with power, authority, affection and revelation. – Power – the nation was set in path to fulfill Jeremiah and return to Jerusalem. Authority – one of the highest ranking angels, Gabriel came to Him personally. Affection – He was called beloved of God. Revelation – he ended up with further knowledge of God’s mystery and plan.

Join us on Fridays leading up to The Call and join us at The Call in TRUE REPENTANCE….

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.

We Are Responsible for Abortion (The Judas Kiss) | Countdown to the Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 27 –

We Are Responsible for Abortion

We spoke a message at the last iRepent event at Friday, about repenting from the pragmatism of Judas. Pragmatism is a philosophy that severely overdoes practical thinking – to the point of betraying God to do what we think will work. Judas’s pragmatism was the driving force of his betrayal of Christ. He wanted to get his will done his way. He wanted control. He ended up being instrumental in God’s will, but on the wrong side. “Woe to him by whom he is betrayed.”

22 And truly the Son of man goeth , as it was determined : but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed !

How do we Judas-Kiss Jesus?

We betray God’s purpose for our single lives when we live for ourselves. When we date around and do frivolous things that don’t produce disciples for Christ, or Godly marriages for the Kingdom of God. (1 Cor 7)

We betray God’s purpose for our families when we decide not to allow God to produce the Godly seed that He desires. We believe the lie that children are a loss, when God says they are a blessing, a profit. (Malach 2, Ps 127)

We betray God’s purpose for our ministries when we change our message to fit the people, instead of changing the people to fit the message, the Word of God. (Luke 3)

We betray God’s purpose for the Church when we live in isolation instead of breaking of bread and fellowship, doing life together. (Act 2)

We betray the purpose of God’s House when we allow it to be a place where thieves can hide, instead of a House of Prayer for every ethnic group. (John 2)

God still gets His purpose done anyway, but woe to the person used by satan to betray the will of God. God has enough mercy to cover us, but only if we turn our hearts completely back to Him.

So, how are we responsible for abortion? The Church has all authority in heaven and on earth. If its bound, it’s because we bound it. If its loose, it’s because we loosed it.

How did abortion get loosed by the Church?

Lookup The Negro Project and Margaret Sanger. When satan planted Darwinism and Eugenics into society, and used white racism and fear to try and destroy the black race, where did he send his messenger? To the Church. Margaret Sanger went to the Churches with a message of pragmatism, family planning, and birth control. She convinced black pastors that family planning was the way to prosperity and respect. They loosed it in the Church, and a few decades later, abortion was legalized in the government.

It was the Judas in us that is responsible for abortion. We betrayed God’s purpose for our families out of fear. Instead of God’s plan, and God’s control, we were duped into accepting our own planning and our own control. Satan got an inch (family planning and birth control) in the Church, and through our authority, he took a mile (legalized abortion) in the culture. This lie is so pervasive that, even now, we think God is going to give us too many children if we don’t prevent Him. God knows exactly how many children we need and how to provide for them. Several families in the bible only had 2, or 1 child. Some had 15. Each one is a profit, not a loss.

How much witty invention and financial provision will God release to those committed to His planning and under His control? The Duggars have 19 children, and have plenty of resources and businesses, 0 debt, plus they make nearly million dollars every season while the world watches them glorify God! Im not saying that everyone is called to be like Jim Bob or Michelle Duggar; but we must be open to giving God control. Us and the children the Lord has given us are for signs and wonders to the earth Isaiah 8:18. The disciples got the riches of the Holy Ghost. Judas got nothing.

We must repent for being responsible for allowing and loosing the mentality that is the seedbed of abortion. Let us never betray God’s purposes! It’s a waste of time to blame the government when all the responsiblity and authority has been given to us. Lord we turn our hearts back to you!
