Good Friday Morning! 7/31/20

When the World will reject satan and accept the Sun of righteousness, healing will duplicate. Jer 30:13  There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines.
Nah 3:19  There is no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous: all that hear the bruit of thee shall clap the hands over thee: for upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?
Mal 4:2  But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
Mat 4:23  And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
Mat 9:35  And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
Luk 9:6  And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.
Luk 9:11  And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.

Even nice people are turning mean.

Recently I’ve seen some people who were at one time, known to have gentle hearts and they spoke with so much love. But lately, those same persons have become mean and cursing at people, dogging characters and hurting hearts. In my spirit I can see a heat around them. It is as though they have a red hot vibratory aura around their persona. Something has creeped in. They cherish everything except their relationship with Jesus.

Do you know some “brute beasts?”


Tit 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
Tit 1:8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
Tit 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
Tit 1:10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
Tit 1:11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
Tit 1:12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.

1Co 5:5  To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1Ti 1:20  Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

Good Thursday Morning! 7/30/20

We desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
Col 1:10  That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
Col 1:11  Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
Col 1:12  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
Col 1:13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Col 1:14  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Do you have the spirit of Moloch?

Moloch[a] (also Molech, Mollok, Milcom, or Malcam) is the biblical name of a Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice, through fire or war.

The name Moloch results from a dysphemic vocalisation in the Second Temple period of a theonym based on the root mlk, “king”. There are a number of Canaanite gods with names based on this root, which became summarily associated with Moloch, including biblical Malkam (מַלְכָּם‎) “Great King” (KJV Milcom), which appears to refer to a god of the Ammonites, as well as Tyrian Melqart and others.

Rabbinical tradition depicted Moloch as a bronze statue heated with fire into which the victims were thrown. This has been associated with reports by Greco-Roman authors on the child sacrifices in Carthage to Baal Hammon.[1] Archaeological excavations since the 1920s have produced evidence for child sacrifice in Carthage as well as inscriptions including the term MLK, either a theonym or a technical term associated with sacrificial rites. In interpretatio graeca, the Phoenician god was identified with Cronus, due to the parallel mytheme of Cronus devouring his children.

Otto Eissfeldt in 1935 argued that mlk was not to be taken as a theonym at all but as a term for a type of fire sacrifice, and that *lĕmōlek “as a molk-sacrifice” had been reinterpreted as the name of a Canaanite idol following the Deuteronomic reform under Josiah (r. 640–609 BC). According to Eissfeldt, this 7th-century reform abolished the child sacrifice that had been happening.

Moloch has been used figuratively in English literature from John Milton‘s Paradise Lost (1667) to Allen Ginsberg‘s “Howl” (1955), to refer to a person or thing demanding or requiring a very costly sacrifice.

(The above is taken from Wikipedia.)

I believe that today, 29 July 2020, the argument over whether or not we should keep our current president, Donald Trump or put in a Democrat is sent directly from the enemy of our souls. Leading America is not about parties but hearts. Parties can sometimes run an experience. Read the Book of Esther and see what parties can do. There are so many blinded people today who cannot see that the enemy is planting booby-traps politically to destroy this country. A house divided will not stand. I have seen where people are enthralled with the character, personality and outside ‘features’ of those who want to run this country. I am only writing what we already know from sight, sound or experience. Well, for those who are the proverbial “awake” anyway. One party is pulling out the other party’s faults (which we all have) while going around smelling women’s hair, lying about email, getting professional sexual favors under the desk of the Office of the United States, and opening the annals (should I use that term) of homosexuality which the Word specifically speaks against. We’ve become a perverted Nation. Did you hear that even some famous people are putting babies blood or even their own in their perfumes and products? Your kids could be using them right now. I bind Moloch in Jesus name. How can someone diss our bible publicly and say that America is no longer a Christian Nation!? The devil is bold. Ahhhwhaaaaat? And still, we let it go. *Crickets. Christians don’t publicly confess that Jesus is not the only way but there are millions (or thousands) of ways to get into Heaven. Be careful who you follow. (Emotions, emotions my friend.) God doesn’t act on emotions, your flesh does. “Be ye holy” says the Lord and repenting is the ‘right’ thing to do. Holiness is righteousness, doing the right, holy and consecrated-to-God type of things. And don’t think that the Godly people in our government will allow publicly staged antics to run smoothly. Christians STILL DO exist! And let’s not forget the kicker of racism. One should not bow to the demon of racism. (Blinded by the enemy.) “They’re white!” some shout Ku Klux Klan-ism) while others shout “They’re black! Hooray! Imhotep!!!!”

Imhotep (/ɪmˈhoʊtɛp/; Ancient Egyptian: ỉỉ-m-ḥtp “the one who comes in peace”; fl. late 27th century BC) was an Egyptian chancellor to the pharaoh Djoser, probable architect of the Djoser’s step pyramid, and high priest of the sun god Ra at Heliopolis.

Can you imagine having leaders who believe that Jesus and satan are brothers and you will have a zillion wives when you die and ‘go to Heaven.’ Imagine that in office? As above so below. Then they wonder why they are so tired and confused half of the time. Jesus makes us free of legalism and exhaustion-ism. Christian women are not committing suicide over un-equal treatment and confusing doctrine.

The problem that we are facing now is the fact that people cannot see that God is using our current President yes, and with his odd personality. We should actually be praying for our nation AND our President. God used an ass in the Book of Numbers. He can use anything or anyone that He wants.

Num 22:28  And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

Num 22:29  And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.

Num 22:30  And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.

Num 22:32  And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me:

Num 22:33  And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.

You mean to tell me that Balaam didn’t realize that he was actually talking to an ass? If your ass/donkey started talking wouldn’t you shut up and jump back or something? Which one was the ass? *Selah

How can you be Christian and hate your leaders? He even mentioned his personality on tv yesterday. I don’t know if anyone else caught it but I did. I believe that he is being advised by some on fire, Holy Ghost Christians who are teaching him to have humility, to stop being the bull in the China shop so to speak. (No pun there as far as China is concerned.) READ THE BIBLE FOLKS. Most of the persons in the Bible had odd personalities. I have an odd personality! Most ministers of God do. I am a bull-type so to speak, as well. People come to me lastly because they say that they know they are going to get the truth if they come to me for help and truthfully…I am honored. Being orphaned from the age of 3 months, I had a hard life, made a lot of mistakes and I am tired of playing games with the devil and his world. I pull no punches, I just hit ’em with the Word. Yes, it makes people mad but so what? It’s the devil in them that hates the Word in me. The Father and I are One. I Am the righteousness of God. It’s who God chooses to do His work. Much to the devil’s chagrin, after his blunder in Heaven where he turned on God and attempted to do what he wanted to do, God is not necessarily always using ‘beautiful’ people. Beautiful on the inside yes, but not necessarily on the outside. Scholars say that even Paul the Great Apostle could have ‘possibly’ had some type of eye problem such as gook in his eyes that may have turned some people off. We don’t exactly know what his “thorn in his side” was. It was appointed to him to keep him humble. 2Co 12:7  And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

But I have noticed that true prophets and ministers of the Most High turn beautiful and become sharp and young as they continue in Him, in Jesus Christ. One preacher had someone ask him how he stays so young. He simply told them that he serves a risen and living Christ who keeps him young and to this day, he still look like a teenager.

The Hydroxychloroquine argument:

People are getting upset because Certified doctors are praising the results of Hydroxychloroquine against #COVID19 #Coronovirus. They are saying that everyone who comes to them with Diabetes or some type of ailment, ends up becoming healed of the virus, and healthy again just by taking the pill twice a day. Here’s my question, instead of people complaining and pressing their hatred of our current President upon us all, why don’t they allow the use of the medicine and then collect data on the results themselves? Think about it, why would someone fight so hard against something unless there is something good about it? They were hell-bent on killing Jesus as well. That’s that demonic activity that wants to, as Bob Marley used to say, “kill it before it grows.” It’s just like preachers, beware of those who get too much attention, the devil already has them, that is their glory. You can just about trust those who are not so well-known or not so gorgeous or handsome. They are the humble ones. They are the publicly denied. Jesus was denied wherever He went and so shall we be. I am denied. I am used to it and I DON’T care. I’ve learned not to lean upon the World and men but God instead. He’s awesome. If you can’t keep up with the footmen, how can you keep up with the horses right? In Jesus, I surpass them all. Thank you Jesus.

Jer 12:5  If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?

Our ministry and our lives should present Hope right? Jesus is our Hope. He came and gave us Hope and wants us to give others the same. Instead of making this long and drawn out, because I am feeling some kind of way today, I will end this by delivering to you the fact that we, true Christians, not just the Logos ones but the Rhema ones, should live their lives delivering Hope. If you are against bringing Hope to the people and you can’t tell when the Spirit is speaking, then you may as well crawl up to the arms of Moloch with the abortionists, (baby-killers), and the defiant “believers” and Hope that you are going to Heaven. I know that I am going, I don’t have to Hope that I do. Pick a side folks.

I need your help

I have had this iMac for nearly 10 years now and it is showing signs of wear and tear. I use it for my Ministry, my Avon business, my 2 gold businesses (I give away free gold savings accounts and boy is it needed today!) and I’ve done so much volunteer work for friends and professional people including videos, websites, etc. I am a single mother and I don’t really get thousands at a time to get what I need. It comes to me yes, praise God, but in spurts. I am a “spurt” person if that makes any sense. God sees to it that I get what I need and I am asking because He also said, “You have not because you ask not.” Jas 4:2  Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Therefore, I am asking. Yes, I am blessed and I thank God for it but I also need that special “spurt” this time to get this expensive computer, a system that I am used to using.

It’s not easy asking the public for help but I must. Please help me to get another Mac so that I can continue doing the Lord’s work in helping others? My ministry is a 501(c)(3) and you will receive a tax credit for it when you receive a receipt from me.

For years now, I’ve had a little Rite Aid fan behind my Mac to keep it cool as the original fan died about a year after I purchased it. The man at the Mac Store told me that it would almost cost the amount of a Mac to get the fan fixed. God showed me the “ram in the bush” method with the Rite Aid fan. It has even died and I have ordered 2 more from Amazon.

Hidden Manna (research)

Rev 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Revelation 2:17

let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches
See commentary on Revelation 2:7.

overcomes
See Who is the Overcomer?

hidden manna
The manna is set in direct contrast to the things sacrificed to idols. The church was eating earthly pagan food, but the overcomer is promised heavenly food from above.

When Israel was in the wilderness, God supernaturally provided manna for their food. Manna was something like white coriander seed and tasted like wafers made of honey (Ex. Ex. 16:31; Num. Num. 11:7). The manna was provided for a period of forty years (Ex. Ex. 16:35) until Israel crossed the Jordan (Jos. Jos. 5:12). Manna provided life in a barren wilderness and is even called “angel’s food” (Ps. Ps. 78:23-25).

In an intentional comparison between Himself and the feeding of Israel in the wilderness, Jesus fed the multitude (John John 6:1-14). Afterwards, Jesus taught the significance of the event, which was not found in the miracle itself, but in what it signified:

“Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ ” Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.” And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” (John John 6:31-35) Jesus is the true manna which gives eternal life. The manna in the wilderness sustained the Israelites for a time, but they still died in the wilderness:

“I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” (John John 6:48-51) The overcomer has faith in Christ and is a partaker of His flesh given on our behalf. Thus he has eternal life:

“As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.” (John John 6:57-58) This manna is said to be hidden. Ex. 16:32-34; cf. Heb. Heb. 9:4). This manna, as being thus laid up in the Holy Place, obtained the name of ‘hidden.’ ”1

The allusion is ultimately traceable to Ex. Ex. 16:32-34, where the Lord commanded a sample of manna to be preserved as a memorial for future generations. Tradition was quick to explain its subsequent disappearance. It was taken to have been originally kept in the ark of the covenant (cf. Heb. Heb. 9:4), and on the destruction of Solomon’s temple Jeremiah, according to 2 Macc. Heb. 2:4-7, was warned to take the tabernacle, the ark and its contents to Sinai and there hide them underground. There they would remain until the coming of the Messiah, when Jeremiah would reappear and deposit them in the new Messianic temple in Jerusalem. A variant in 2 Baruch 6:7-10, ascribing their concealment to an angel, is almost contemporary with the Revelation. neither of these passages mentions manna, but its inclusion in this tradition is inferred from Heb. Heb. 9:4 and explicit in the Rabbinic sources (so Yoma 52b).2 Christ Himself may be considered hidden manna, being no longer visible since His ascension:

Life eternal commences on this side of the grave, and not first on the other; and here in the wilderness Christ is the bread from heaven, the bread of God, the true manna, of which those that eat shall never die (John John 6:31-33, John 6:48-51). Nay, more than this; since his Ascension he is in some sort a “hidden manna” for them now.3

The fact that the manna is described as “hidden,” points to the mystery of eternal life, a mystery that is only perceived through faith. The hidden (or secret) manna seems to be the bread of life which is a secret from all who have not experienced the saving grace of Jesus Christ.4 Eating the manna may also be an allusion to participation in the marriage supper of the Lamb (Rev. Rev. 19:9+).5 Bullinger sees a literal fulfillment in the nourishment of Israel in the future wilderness (Rev. Rev. 12:14+).6

From the perspective of the saints at Pergamum, the hidden manna was a reminder of God’s provision in spite of deprivation. “The person leaving the state church might be deprived of his job and welfare. But in spite of what he may be deprived of, God will provide his sustenance.”7

white stone
In understanding the white stone, we meet with a tendency of many interpreters to derive an understanding of scriptural imagery from pagan cultural practices.8 See Searching for Meaning in all the Wrong Places.

A number of alternative interpretations have been offered for the meaning of the white stone.

  1. Token of Innocence – A white pebble was placed in a ballot box by a Greek judge pronouncing a sentence of acquittal (a black pebble indicating condemnation). Stone is ψῆφον [psēphon] : Acts 26:10.”9 Acts 26:10 uses the same Greek word for ‘vote,’ then we can advance a strong case that the white stone may well represent a vote of innocence. It then depicts the believer’s new character and symbolically denotes the purity which flows from the cleansing from sin that takes place at conversion.”10 “This white stone is absolution from the guilt of sin, alluding to the ancient custom of giving a white stone to those acquitted on trial and a black stone to those condemned.”11
  2. Token of Privilege – A tessera (also called ψῆφος [psēphos] ) was given at Olympic games to the victor with subsequent attendant social privileges. Allusion has been seen to yet another kind of tessera, one supposedly given to a gladiator at his discharge from the arena, exempting him from the obligation to risk his life again there. Many such tokens survive. They take the form of elongated rectangular tablets of bone bearing the name of a man, the letters ‘SP’, and the day and year, often incised in sequence on the four faces.12
  3. Token of Initiation – A token of initiation into the cult of Asklepios. “Roman examples were sometimes dated on the first of January, a day said to have been a festival of Asklepios. None of the known specimens is from Pergamum, but the importance of the Asklepios cult there . . . lends a strong circumstantial appeal to the theory.”13
  4. Good Omen – Reflecting the practice of a person who placed a white or black pebble for each happy or unhappy day into an urn. At his death, the colors were totaled to rate the happiness of his life.
  5. High Priest’s HeaddressEx. 28:36-37). The words inscribed on it were ‘Holiness to the Lord.’ According to this interpretation the overcomer will wear a headdress with a precious stone, on which shall be engraved the new name which belongs to the new Lord of the new kingdom, a name equivalent in value to that of Jehovah under the Old Testament, which no one but the high priest knew how to utter.”14
  6. High Priest’s BreastplateEx. 28:17-21). Another problem is that while the priest’s breastplate had twelve stones, Revelation Rev. 2:17+ mentions only one stone.”15
  7. Urim and Thummim – Trench supposes the white stone may be a diamond, the same stone which is the Urim and Thummim.16 “The stone is white or ‘bright,’ the Greek term λευκό [leuko] can refer either to the color white (traditional here) or to an object that is bright or shining, either from itself or from an outside source of illumination.”17 Rev. 3:12+, ‘I will write upon him My new name’): some new revelation of Himself which shall hereafter be imparted to His people, and which they alone are capable of receiving. The connection with the ‘hidden manna’ will thus be clear, as none save the high priest had access to the ‘manna hidden’ in the sanctuary.”18 Ex. 28:30; Num. Num. 27:21; Deu. Deu. 33:8; 1S. 1S. 28:6). This suggestion seems possible for several reasons. (a) The promised stone in Revelation Rev. 2:17+ could be white in the sense that it will have a whitish glisten. If Urim means lights, then it too could have had a whitish appearance. (b) Any engraving on the Urim was known only to the priest. This corresponds with the name written on the promised stone known only by the person who receives it. (c) Since the hidden manna Christ promised in the same verse is analogous to the Old Testament manna, the white stone could also be analogous to an Old Testament stone. It appears then that if Christ intended His audience to see an analogy between His white stone and the Urim, His reward would be experiencing God’s will fully.”19 Lev. 8:8). . . . [This was ] were worn by the high priest when he would enter into the holy place into the presence of the Lord. He alone could then have access to the ark of the covenant wherein reposed the hidden manna.”20
  8. Stone Tablets of the LawRev. 2:14-23+). As the overcomer received and honored the Word disclosing God’s Person and will, Christ assures [him] that he is to receive the ultimate disclosure of God’s Person and will. His symbol for this is the “white stone.” ’ This view is also possible for several reasons. (a) It is consistent in seeing both the manna and the stone as imageries from the same era in Israel’s history. (b) It fits with other rewards in Revelation Rev. 2:1+ which also reach back to the Old Testament (e.g., the tree of life [Rev. Rev. 2:7+], from Genesis Gen. 2:1 and Gen. 3:1; the crown of life, not the second death [Rev. Rev. 2:10-11+], going back also to Genesis Gen. 2:1 and Gen. 3:1; the rod of authority and the morning star [Rev. Rev. 2:26-28+], from Psalm Ps. 2:1 and Numbers Num. 24:1). (c) The idea of what ‘God had written’ (Rev. Rev. 2:17+) is also emphasized with regard to the stones of the Law (Ex. Ex. 32:15-16). (d) The Lord made His name prominent and repeated it in writing on the stones of the Law, as in Exodus Ex. 20:1. (e) This view also suits the context of Revelation Rev. 2:1+. Standing against the sin-darkening environment, the overcomer honors the value of God’s moral law associated with His will (Rev. Rev. 2:14-15+; cf. Rev. Rev. 2:20-23+). So Christ will honor him with the ultimate enjoyment that relates to knowing and doing God’s will.”21

We believe it is inappropriate to base the interpretation of symbols within the book of Revelation upon pagan, non-Jewish cultural practices . The Bible is an inspired Jewish book (Rom. Rom. 3:2; Rom. 9:4), so we should not expect to find our answers in practices or beliefs which are considered blasphemous by God. When we apply the Golden Rule of Interpretation, we compare Scripture with Scripture to gain an understanding of the text. If this premise is true, and we believe it is, then it rules out all but the last four views as being contenders for understanding the white stone.

Of the last four views, we believe the last two views are most likely connected with this passage.

The white stone does not stand alone in our text for on the stone there will be a new name written. Observe several characteristics concerning this passage: (1) the gift given is a stone; (2) the stone is white; (3) the stone is written upon; (4) the writing conveys a name. We believe these factors connect the stone with the Stone Tablets of the Law given to Moses and upon which was recorded God’s moral law, the Ten Commandments (Ex. Ex. 20:1-17; Ex. 24:12; Ex. 34:2, Ex. 34:29). Throughout Scripture, names convey the character of the one bearing the name. It is no coincidence that when God met with Moses for the second time to write the tablets of the law, He proclaimed His character (Ex. Ex. 34:6-7). The record of the law written on stone is a reflection of God’s character.

As for the white aspect of the stone, we note the command given to Joshua when the law was renewed prior to crossing the Jordan:

And it shall be, on the day when you cross over the Jordan to the land which the LORD your God is giving you, that you shall set up for yourselves large stones, and whitewash them with lime. You shall write on them all the words of this law, when you have crossed over, that you may enter the land which the LORD your God is giving you, ‘a land flowing with milk and honey,’ just as the LORD God of your fathers promised you. Therefore it shall be, when you have crossed over the Jordan, that on Mount Ebal you shall set up these stones, which I command you today, and you shall whitewash them with lime. And there you shall build an altar to the LORD your God, an altar of stones; you shall not use an iron tool on them. You shall build with whole stones the altar of the LORD your God, and offer burnt offerings on it to the LORD your God. You shall offer peace offerings, and shall eat there, and rejoice before the LORD your God. And you shall write very plainly on the stones all the words of this law. (Deu. Deu. 27:2-8) [emphasis added] This command was later fulfilled by Joshua (Jos. Jos. 8:32). The written law upon the tablets of stone was a picture of how one day God would write the law upon tablets of flesh:

You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart. (2Cor. 2Cor. 2:2) The white stone may be a memorial to the law in that it records a new name which expresses the character of God to which the believer is being conformed (Rom. Rom. 8:29; 1Cor. 1Cor. 15:49; 2Cor. 2Cor. 3:18; Php. Php. 3:21; Col. Col. 3:10).

There is a textual variant at Revelation Rev. 15:6+ which mentions a white stone, but is generally thought to be a transcriptional error. See commentary on Revelation 15:6.

new name written
There are two possibilities concerning this new name. Either it is a new name given to the overcomer or it is the new name of God given to the overcomer in the church at Philadelphia (Rev. Rev. 3:12+).

This may indicate one or more of three main ideas. First, the name might be a new name Christ will give to each believer. It will be appropriately different for each overcomer and no one except the one who receives it will know the name. Second, the name might be the same for all believers. It will be known to all victors (all believers) just as the things of God are known (in different degree) to all believers (1Jn. 1Jn. 2:20, 1Jn. 2:27; 1Cor. 1Cor. 2:15-16). This view also fits with the Lord’s promises in Isaiah that He will give to His people—all of them in common—a “new name” (Isa. Isa. 62:2; cf. Isa. 56:5; Isa. 65:15). Third, the name might be that of God the Father or of Christ Himself, a common heritage for all overcomers. In favor of this view is the parallel passage in Revelation Rev. 3:12+, which says the name Christ will give is God’s own name. (Further support is in Revelation Rev. 14:1+ and Rev. 22:4+, which refer to God’s name on the foreheads of the 144,000 and all believers in the New Jerusalem.) This name could be a name of God that He deems appropriate for His own as an expression of the fact that they belong to Him (cf. Isa. Isa. 56:5; Isa. 62:2; Isa. 65:15). Also, as already noted, the white stone may allude to the stones of the Law on which God wrote His name (Ex. Ex. 20:1).22 The name is new: Mat. 9:17 where contrasting terms occur together, kainos being second, applied to wineskins which were not brand new (as was the wine), but simply not having been used before, unused. See the use of kainos at John John 13:34.”23

Isaiah described how God would give a name to those who follow after Him—even to those who were not Jews:

Even to them I will give in My house and within My walls a place and a name better than that of sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that shall not be cut off. Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to the LORD, to serve Him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be His servants-everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and holds fast My covenant—even them I will bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices Will be accepted on My altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations. The Lord GOD, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says, yet I will gather to him Others besides those who are gathered to him. (Isa. Isa. 56:5-8) Whether the name is that of God or a new name given the believer, it describes the new character and inheritance of the believer (2Cor. 2Cor. 5:17; Eph. Eph. 4:24) who has been adopted into the family of God. “The new name is the name of adoption: adopted persons took the name of the family into which they were adopted.”24

no one knows except him
The name is secret—known only to the one who receives the stone. Full disclosure of the things of God is reserved for those who share intimacy with Him, who know Him and are known by Him. This pattern is seen in the great revelation given to those who had an especially close relationship with God such as Moses, Daniel, and John (Ps. Ps. 25:14; Mtt. Mat. 11:27). God spoke to Moses “face to face, as a man speaks to his friend” (Ex. Ex. 33:11). Daniel was “greatly beloved” of God (Dan. Dan. 9:23; Dan. 10:11, Dan. 10:19). John was the disciple “whom Jesus loved” (John John 13:23; John 20:2; John 21:7, John 21:20).

The name is unknown, as is Jesus’ new name (Rev. Rev. 3:12+; Rev. Rev. 19:12+). This recalls the mysterious, but unrevealed name attending the Angel of the Lord and Son of God throughout Scripture. The name is hinted at, but never revealed: when Jacob wrestled with the Angel and was named Israel (Gen. Gen. 32:29); when the Angel announced the birth of Samson to his parents (Jdg. Jdg. 13:6, Jdg. 13:18); in the question concerning the Son of God (Pr. Pr. 30:4); and in God’s new name to be written on the overcomer (Rev. Rev. 3:12+).

Him may refer to the category of all overcomers—that the new name of God is only known to believers. If it refers to the individual, then it would seem to imply that a different name is revealed to each overcomer.25 If the latter, then the name may be that given to the individual overcomer, or perhaps a different name revealing one of the many facets of God’s character is given to each.

receives it
The one who knows the name is the one who receives the stone. “It refers not to the name, but to the stone (containing the name).”26

Tithing revised.

                        “Tithing Revised” by Rev Essie Scott

Good Morning, Good Afternoon and/or Good Evening wherever you are. I pray that your day is blessed and if it doesn’t seem to be going that way…..Bless it yourself! God lives in you. Today the topic is “Tithing Revised.” Now years ago, I felt a lot different than I have been feeling lately. I have to admit that, because of greedy preachers and abusers of the Word, I had become hard-hearted about tithing and even lost some so-called “friends” over the topic. I didn’t absolutely hate tithing, no, but I was morbid about the way that ministers stood in the pulpit and instilled fear about tithing upon all who listened. God is not pleased with the fear-mongering going on in His pulpit today. And no, God is not going to strike you and your household with illnesses or flatten your tires, but He will give you awesome favor if you bless His Kingdom. I have a myriad of notes here so hang in there with me. There may be a few that you will have to write down and study later ok? So get your Swords, a drink and a snack, and maybe a tablet and pen and sit back and I will delve into this subject, right after this.

(SONG: Dulcimer- Give Thanks.)

(Prayer) Thank you Father for rising us up this morning and being Who you are in our lives. You are the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last. We worship, praise and adore you Father. Jesus said “The Father and I are One” and we are saying that today and everyday to remind the enemy that we are nothing to contend with in Jesus name. We are the righteousness of God, the Children of the Most High. Nothing by any means shall hurt us. By your stripes Jesus we’ve actually BEEN healed. We thank you for that. In Jesus name, I speak peace, love and joy into the hearts and households of those who come on to listen to the Word. Psalm 23, we shall want for NO THING! Use me Holy Spirit to teach the correct way and show people that you bless others by using our hands. We don’t want to be stingy Christians or those with the poor victim mentality. Forgive us for being hard-hearted against allowing you to use our hands and time. Father we pray for those who may be considering suicide which is what you showed me in my dream last night. To that person who may be listening right now, know that God hears you and is answering your prayers. Hold on to God’s unchanging hand. Wait for another day, it may contain your answer. In Jesus name, amen.

{SERMON}

God shows Abram the stars and makes him Father of many.
Gen 15:5  And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
Gen 15:6  And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

I’ll start out with “The Priestly Order of Melchizedek”
Melchizedek was a Priest without mother or father, beginning nor end and is said to be a pre-incarnate Christ of which Abraham tithed a tenth to even before it was required to do so. He showed up out of nowhere to bless Abraham. Abraham knew something. Abraham had faith and trusted God. Melchizedek meets Abraham on his return from battle, gives him bread and wine (which has been interpreted by some Christian scholars as a precursor of Communion, and blesses Abraham in the name of “God Most High” (in Hebrew El ʿElyon). In return, Abraham gives him a tithe of the booty.
Melchizedek means “My King Is [the god] Sedek” or “My King Is Righteousness” (the meaning of the similar Hebrew cognate). Salem, of which he is said to be king, is very probably Jerusalem. Psalm 76:2 refers to Salem in a way that implies that it is synonymous with Jerusalem, and the reference in Gen. 14:17 to “the King’s Valley” further confirms this identification. The god whom Melchizedek serves as priest is “El ʿElyon.”
Abram Blessed by Melchizedek
Gen 14:17  And the king of Salem went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king’s dale.
Gen 14:18  And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
Gen 14:19  And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
Gen 14:20  And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
Gen 14:21  And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself.
Gen 14:22  And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,
Gen 14:23  That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:
Gen 14:24  Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.


Heb 7:1  For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
Heb 7:2  To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
Heb 7:3  Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
Heb 7:4  Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
Heb 7:5  And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:
Heb 7:6  But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.
Heb 7:7  And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.
Heb 7:8  And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.
Heb 7:9  And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
Heb 7:10  For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.

Jesus Compared to Melchizedek
Heb 7:11  If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron? {If the Law was so great, what need would we have for Jesus?}
Heb 7:12  For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
Heb 7:13  For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
Heb 7:14  For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
Heb 7:15  And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
Heb 7:16  Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
Heb 7:17  For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Tithing defined in the religious sense is a tenth, the tenth part. Hebrew word being “Ma’ asar” . “Asar” – a prime root word, ten, to tithe, take or give a tenth. Greek, “Apodekatoo” to tithe, as a debtor or creditor. “Apo” means off or away. “Dekatoo” means to tithe, to give, take a tenth. “Dekate” a tenth. Even the word “Decade” means 10 years. In Genesis 28:22 we see that Jacob gave a tenth. The Hebrew word used is “asar” which means to tithe. Now there is a difference between tithing, offering, giving and alms. Yes, God wants us to give but not as though you belong to the local Lodge or a club. He wants you to give out of your heart. Tis better to give than to receive. Another proverb: Don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give it away and bless somebody before the devil tries to stop you!!! God loves a cheerful GIVER. Luke 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Giving to ministries gives Eternal results. 1Co 9:9  For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? You are supposed to give where you are spiritually fed and see that others are fed, encouraged and challenged. It provides spiritual nourishment. You are actually giving directly to God. He is the one who will multiply the seed. 2 Cor 9:6 Sow sparingly reap that way. Sow generously, you reap that way.
1Co 9:10  Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
1Co 9:11  If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?

Jesus commanded us to:

Luk 10:7  And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
Luk 10:8  And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
Luk 10:9  And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Abuse of the calling to tithe:

Pastors all over the World immediately go to Malachi 3:10 and 11 when they describe tithing to their congregants which says: Mal 3:10  Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
Mal 3:11  And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 3:12  And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

What many folks don’t realize is that before Malachi 3, God speaks to Pastors/Leaders/Priests in Malachi 1 and 2 who were stealing from the tithes, but you barely if not rarely hear any preaching out of those chapters. And some of you on today may have never even realized that Malachi 2 was dedicated to gangster Priests. Yes, it speaks of all of us, but these passages are mainly for those who were called after the order of Melchizadek – to stop robbing God! Check out Malachi 2 which is even titled in most of our bibles as “The Lord rebukes Priests” which reads like this:

The Lord Rebukes the Priests

Mal 2:1  And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.
Mal 2:2  If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.
Mal 2:3  Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.
Mal 2:4  And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 2:5  My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.
Mal 2:6  The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
Mal 2:7  For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
Mal 2:8  But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.
Mal 2:9  Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law. (They were “do as I say” people not “do as I do” much like today. Giving the Word but not living it.)

In short… the Priests were greedy, they were stealing, robbing God. Mal 3:8  Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Here’s the catch: Where it asks “Will a man rob God?” Preachers used to throw that sentence across the pulpit like we were sinners going to Hell didn’t they? What they failed to know, study or share is the fact that those scriptures were aimed at them not necessarily the congregation. Did you know that? Did they ever explain that to you during Wednesday night bible studies?

➢➢➢😇My problem with the abuse of tithes:
For years I’ve argued the use of Malachi 3 being used by some pastors who were more worried about making their Mercedes payments instead of paying the churches bills and helping out the widows and orphans or the single parents who need to keep their water, electric or gas on. Have you ever seen churches where the Building Fund never really does build anything and the furnace and roof are 1 year of falling out and/or through? You almost have to bring an electric blanket with you on Winter Sundays because it’s so cold and the furnace only covers part of the church building. How many of you are still waiting for a new sidewalk or a new roof with your churches building fund? Or maybe even a handicap ramp so folks can come and get healed and walk back out of the church! What about the churches that charge for funerals like McDonald’s restaurant’s numbered meals? You can pay so much for the funeral but there’s more charges if you want various types of food for those who attend. It’s even more if you want a singer or instrumentalist. It’s like a Catering Business!!!!!! And God forbid that you choose pork chops and macaroni and cheese over baked chicken and greens! But yet the person in the back of the church who owes $600 for taxes to save their house before getting a Sheriff’s sale is refused because the church got an $18,000.00 carpet job done, and that person loses their home. This is a real story folks and you know what? 2 weeks later the church got flooded horribly. That person just may have been sent by God to bless that church. We’ll never know. Choose wisely.

➢➢💳$€ In Malachi 2, the people were tithing to the Priests as they were called to do but the Priests were dipping in the Tithe for a more ‘pleasant’ lifestyle. The flesh always tries to steal from God. That’s something to think about. And get this, fleshly churches could care less about your Sheriff’s Sale, whether you have kids or not.
☑️ I love this:
In the Word, some of the people gave food, some gave money and some gave livestock but they WERE giving. There were different ways that people of different backgrounds and lifestyles were to give. Here’s something to think about, notice in the bible it doesn’t necessarily say that Jesus tithed. The Word does say that He practiced Israeli ways but the subject is not clearly brought up. Not only that, Priests enjoy the tithe. I believe that it wasn’t clearly brought up because Jesus was a Carpenter and carpenter’s didn’t tithe. Tithe was mainly money, livestock or crops.

ANYTHING that you can give to the body of Christ or your local church or minister helps. It’s not always money but according to the Word, Money does answer all things. Ecc 10:19  A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things. It allows your Pastor to make up their mind what they want to fix, help or feed with the offerings and tithes.

This is where the rubber meets the road folks:

God created the Heavens and the Earth. Man created money. God doesn’t need our self-created cash BUT your fellow Christian and/or leader in Christ does. God uses people to bless people!!!!! Barbra Streisand had a point when she sang “People who need people are the luckiest (blessed) people in the World.” And no ‘luck’ does not always refer to “Luc-ifer” but is meant to be ‘blessings’ as well. It’s all in the heart and the way that you mean it.
It makes sense that our bodies need food. Pastors and the Priests cannot eat money, but they surely can eat with the money. Amen? Try to give them more than just money though. That can be considered as a tithe. If they need something for their ministry, go into your QVC, Fingerhut, Amazon, Walmart, or Kohl’s account and get it for them! Have it sent to their address or the church! Send them a swivel chair for their office, a beautiful bible, Strongs concordance, pen and pencil set, a copier for their office or something! Amen? You can give them your time as well. Volunteer to help at the church or pay a bill for them. Bring in some food to give away or clothing. Clean the bathroom or sweep the floor sometimes. Jehovah Jireh provides ALL not just money.

Since I began to understand the tithe, I’ve been blessed to the fullest. As David said, “I shall not want.” It comes to me in bits and pieces and I like it like that. I can see God in it. There is always a ram in the bush. No one can say that if it weren’t for them, Rev Essie wouldn’t have a dime. God sees to that. God is good. It comes from the North, South, East and West. I never know where my next blessing will come from! That is real folks. Something has been happening to me. I can testify about that. It can happen to you as well if you just open your heart and start tithing and/or giving. Tithing is NOT a hoax. Tithing is real. And it surpasses magic by a long shot. No voodoo doll or spell will bring anything to you like the blessings of tithing can! Praise Jesus! That’s temporary stuff, God’s blessings are eternal. God is good!

Don’t boast about it:

Giving to the Needy
Mat 6:1  Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Mat 6:2  Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Mat 6:3  But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
Mat 6:4  That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Rewards of tithing/giving:
Mat 25:34  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
Mat 25:35  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Mat 25:36  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Mat 25:37  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
Mat 25:38  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Mat 25:39  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
Mat 25:40  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

We give/tithe because it is the Lord’s. Lev 27:30 “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s: it is holy unto the Lord. And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord. He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy: it shall not be redeemed. These are the commandments which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.”

  1. Reasons for tithing or giving, and I must add that tithing is NOT essential to your salvation. You will NOT go to Hell for NOT doing so. It’s helps and although some preachers make it seem this way but, it is not necessary in order to be saved. You will not be cursed and your car won’t shut down, your tires won’t go flat, your loved ones won’t get sick and you will not get Cancer for not tithing much to the devil’s (and his advocates chagrin.) But if you do make the decision to tithe, your blessings will rain back down upon you. Devils can’t stop the blessings that have been brought about by tithing. When you obey God’s commandments, demons have to step back and bow to your requests. I have to study up on it but I do not remember seeing anything about Daniel tithing. He prayed 3 times a day but he was under enemy kings (more than one) and I don’t know if he tithed to them or not. Maybe his service to them, I don’t know. It took 21 days to get his answer because the “Prince of Persia” (demon) battled the Angel who was to deliver the answer to Daniel. Tithing SURPASSES the 21 day limit. You don’t always have to wait. God said that He will POUR OUT YOUR BLESSINGS in Malachi 3:10. There are only ⅓ demons around us. There aren’t enough to stop God’s Rain, amen? God’s Rain + ⅔ angels brings about Victory!
    To spread the gospel, this is the biggest reason. Mark 16:15. Preach and teach to every creature. Matthew 28:20. To support God’s work and His ministers. Deut 12:19, 1 Cor 9:7-14, Phil 4:14-16. Please read those scriptures.
    Numbers 18:20-21 And the Lord spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I am thy part and thine inheritance among the children of Israel. 21 And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation. (No one can say that if it wants for them, the Pastor would have nothing. God is better than Allstate. (Insurance.)
    Watch what happens when your read it from a Jewish perspective which is the ‘original’ way to read it, the Complete Jewish Bible by David Stern says:
    “You are not to have an inheritance or portion in their land: I am your portion and inheritance among the people of Israel. To the descendants of Levi I have given the entire tenth of the “produce” collected in Israel. It is their inheritance in payment for the service they render in the tent of meeting.”
    There is a difference between money and produce. Tithing is not always money. We have to get this straight or the church will miss it’s blessings. Do you remember when people used to invite the preacher over for dinner and he’d enjoy it, laugh, talk and then go home satisfied? That’s a type of tithing. Food.
    Other places the tithe (mint, anise, and cummin is mentioned: Matthew 23:23, Luke 11:42
    Places where the tenth is mentioned: Hebrews 7:1-4
    Jacob mentioned giving a tenth in Genesis 28:20-22
    Mat 12:35  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
  2. Why do we tithe?
    We give/tithe because it is the Lord’s. Lev 27:30 “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s: it is holy unto the Lord. And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord. He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy: it shall not be redeemed. These are the commandments which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.” NOTE: NOT money but flock. Tithing is MORE THAN 💵💸💲
    Deuteronomy 14:22-23 “Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place His name there, the tithe of thy corn, wine and oil, the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.” (Give respect where respect is due.)
    Proverbs 3:9 “Honor the LORD with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase.” (NOT just money.)
    When and whatever you decide to tithe, God will honor it. Below are some blessings of tithing/giving:
    a. You will be blessed in all that you do. Deut 12:6-7 and Deut. 14:28-29.
b. Barns will be full. Prov 3:9-10
c. It shall be returned to you. Eccl 11:1 and Luke 6:38
d. Malachai 3….There will be meat in God’s house, the windows of Heaven will be open unto you and God will pour you out a blessing that you won’t have room to receive it. (Put others first and God will see it and bless you.)
    e. God will rebuke the devourer, he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground. 6. All nations shall call you blessed. Your light will shine. People will see that you are an obedient and loving Child of God.
f. Ye shall be a delightsome land.
  3. Where should you tithe/give?
    Numbers 18:21 To the minister of God. Deut 12:5-6 to the church/fellowship that God placed you in. Into the storehouse where you are being fed. Wherever you are receiving Good Word, fertile seed. Where the Word of God is being taught and where God is ministering through His minister. Some people give all of their attention to one minister but out of a manipulative spirit they give to another just to get attention and they attempt to manipulate their ministries. Example: The little old lady who gives so much to the church that she can tell the Pastor when to wind it up, with a simple double cough and a stare. Manipulation of tithing. Witchcraft at it’s finest form.
  4. Who should pay tithes?
    Everyone – Deut 12:6, 14:1, 22.
    Deu 12:6  And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks:
    Deu 12:7  And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.
    Paying of tithes is a principle of God, so therefore this same principle can be and should be applied to the church, minister or ministry.
    There is a minister within New Birth Ministries who was online once and saw good cans of food that she liked. The Lord laid it on her heart to send boxes and boxes of canned food and other staples to the ministers of NB. It was such a blessing and it was right on time. God is good. It was such a blessing to open the boxes and see all of that canned food! God bless her.
  5. Have a correct attitude.
    Without a correct attitude in the giving of your tithe, you will not receive any of the blessings. Give willingly – 2 Cor 8:12. Ex 25:2, Deut 12:6 (Not under bondage), 1 Chron 29:9.
Give freely – Matt 10:8
Not grudgingly – “Lupe” sadness, grief, grievous, heaviness, sorrow.
    Cheerful – “hilaios” see the word “hilarious” there? Merry. Prompt. Willing. Cheerful.
Not of necessity – Give not as under the law as in “I have to”. Give freely, cheerfully as having a spirit of giving. “I want to.” Deu 12:6  And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks: Deu 12:7  And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.
  6. Ways to give…..
    Give faithfully. 2 Chron 31:11-12, Matt 25:23
Not out of habit. Matt 23:23
Give to God, you are not just giving to a church or a preacher. Have God in your heart when you give. Don’t worry about what he/she does with it. God knows your intentions and sees your faithfulness. Give in secret. Matt 6:1-4
Not prideful or boastful. Luke 18:9-14
In faith. Malachi 3:10 Prove God. He’s waiting for you to do so. He will NOT let you down. Come to the point where we are willing to give all. Luke 14:33.
    One thing is for sure, Jesus set us all free from the bondage of the Law and put us in His Grace as of now. Hebrews 7:11-12 tells us that if the Levitical Priesthood was all that and a bag of chips we wouldn’t have needed Jesus to come straighten things out and give a way of escape. Verse 12 specifically states that “if the priesthood being CHANGED there is made of necessity a change also of the law.”
    Simply put, and I will use a term that some preachers don’t like but as you can see, it’s in your bible……JESUS ‘CHANGED’ THE LAW.
    Tithe if you can my friend, it’s a beautiful thing to do and you will receive many blessing from your Father in Heaven for doing so and being obedient for obedience is greater than sacrifice. If you feel that you can’t, that is according to your faith my friend. God is not in the Hell-sending business. Jesus paid the price, He would appreciate your helping others but He really doesn’t need your money. He wants YOU.

Are you saved? Now is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. With all that is going on around the world, you need a friend. Jesus can be that special friend if you allow Him into your life. He is your helper and His Holy Spirit is your Comforter.
If you are not saved, just repeat the Romans Road after me: Say “Jesus, I repent of my sins, I am so sorry Lord. I believe that you died on the cross and rose 3 days later from the dead, just for me and I accept what you have done, I accept you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus, amen.” Now go find a bible believing, Holy Ghost filled church and learn of Him, it’s never too late. Your new life starts now. All old things are gone away. God throws them as far as the East if from the West. Now….go live, laugh and love! 
Num 6:24  The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25  The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26  The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Thank you for coming on today and I pray that your week goes by Victoriously!

Sexual perversion in Hollywood

Literally crying. This is why you see children on tv with their pants so tight you can almost see the shape of their crotches. Perverts. Jesus keeps you young not the blood of innocent children and babies. Smh. They secretly use kids because they lack in the ability to please adults their own age. It’s just like a man that will fight a woman. Tell him to fight a man his own size and then beat on his chest. It’s all about ‘lack’ and ‘low self-esteem.’ They make an innocent child pay for their perverted ways. Pray for children all over the World. Jesus said, “Let the little children come unto me.”

MEL GIBSON’S SHOCKING REVELATION ON HOLLYWOOD …

In a shocking exposé, movie star Mel Gibson has blown the whistle on the epidemic of “parasites” who “control Hollywood” that are involved in #childSacrifice and. #pedophilia.
The Lethal Weapon star said that “every studio in Hollywood is bought and paid for with the blood of innocent children,” adding that the “most valuable currency is the blood of babies. While in London, England promoting his latest role in Daddy’s Home 2, Gibson described entertainment industry elites as an “enemy to mankind” who “feast on the blood of innocent children.”
He said key players in the movie business “get their kicks from destroying the sanctuary of children” as they “thrive on breaking every God-given taboo known to man.”
“They have a blatant disregard for the good of the people. Destroying people’s lives is just a game to them – the more pain they can cause, the better the thrill. Children are just sustenance to them. They feast on the pain and fear, and the younger, the better.”
“These people follow their own religion and use it for moral guidance. It’s not the sort of religious teachings you folks would ever hear about. They perform sacred rituals that are sick and totally at odds with the moral fabric that binds most patriotic Americans. The worst part: It’s an open secret in Hollywood and everyone wants in on it.”
Mel Gibson appeared on British prime-time BBC chatshow, The Graham Norton Show on Friday, where the veteran actor answered questions from shocked guests, in the green room backstage after his appearance, regarding the true nature of Hollywood “elites.”
He explained how he had been blacklisted by Hollywood’s controlling oligarchs in 2006 for voicing his opinions about the industry that clashed with their liberal agenda.
He said that since then he has been “working outside of the system” which has given him a fresh perspective, saying:
“It’s difficult to comprehend, I know, and I’m sorry that I am the one to break this to you, but Hollywood is an institutionalized pedophile ring. They use and abuse kids for their own sick ‘spiritual beliefs,’ if you can even call them that. I don’t fully understand it myself, but they harvest these kids for their energy and feast on their blood. They don’t do it mercifully either, they scare the sh*t out of them before they sacrifice them. The more innocent the child, the more terrified they are, the more they thrive on it,” said the Braveheart star.
What does that mean? They aren’t doing this as some form of artistic expression, they are harvesting the blood of children and eating their flesh because they think it gives them some sort of ‘life force.’
“If the child was mentally and physically suffering when they died, then it gives them ‘extra life force. I don’t understand why they do that, but that’s what they do. Most of us have a moral compass that guides us through life, right? These people don’t have that, or if they do, it’s pointing in the opposite direction.”
Gibson, who has spent the last 30 years working inside and outside of the Hollywood regime, says that the industry’s hierarchy “thrives on abuse, pain, torture, stress, and suffering.
According to Gibson, the desire to inflict such abuse isn’t limited to just the elite, but only “those at the top of the food chain can afford such a ‘luxury,’” although, it’s a “goal for most people in the industry.”
“Hollywood is drenched in innocent children’s blood. The references to pedophilia and cannibalism have always been there, but for years they cryptic or symbolic. I was introduced to these practices in the early 2000s and was threatened with serious repercussions should I ever speak out. And, I don’t just mean my career, I mean my life was threatened, my family’s life would be in danger. I can only talk about it now as those people, those industry executives, they’re all dead now.”
“They see the blood of a sexually abused infant as the ‘ultimate prize’ and say that it’s ‘highly enriched. Babies are like a ‘premium currency’ and hold a higher value of anything else you can think of: Diamonds, drugs, caviar, you name it. They are literally trading these kids like a currency for favors, movie roles, kickbacks…”
According to Gibson, this perversion isn’t just the latest fad but has been a deep-threaded culture in Hollywood for generations, and is something popular among both men and women.
“This isn’t anything new and has been taking place since before Hollywood was even founded. If you research this phenomenon, you will find lurking in the shadows of every dark era in history. These dark, multidimensional occult practices have been used in secret societies for hundreds of years. Hollywood is being used for social programming and mind control and their message is being projected into the psyche of the American people…People everywhere.”

And it’s not just Hollywood!

Good Friday Morning! 7/24/20

God has handed you the Keys to the Kingdom, will you accept them or reject them? Without Jesus in your life, suffering will continue. He IS your Hope. ~ Go to Him and He will give you rest. ~ Matthew 11:28
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. ~ Ephesians 1:11-14
In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.~

Blades dream

Last night I had the strangest dream of seeing 12 x 12 area (approximately) in someone’s yard that was layered with upright blades. It was a bladed grate of some sort. The blades were arranged like a square veggie cutter. I touched it and nearly sliced my finger but I was careful not to. A lady was showing it to me like an exhibit.

Any dream interpretation out there?

Did you claim your day yet?

Repeat after me, “I Am the righteousness of God. The Father and I are One. Nothing by any means shall hurt me and all that rises up against me shall fall by my side. By Jesus stripes I Am ALREADY healed. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Father and Thank you Holy Spirit. In Jesus name, amen.” Now, go live, go laugh and go love!!!!!! Sundays sermon 7/19/20
