MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE FOR The Eternal Body of Christ 9/24/12 ~ Subtle is his game, Satan is his name

Goood Morninnnnnng,

  1. (esp. of a change or distinction) So delicate or precise as to be difficult to analyze or describe.
  2. (of a mixture or effect) Delicately complex and understated.

Such an interesting word. In meaning and pretext. It's a method and manner that Satan employs so that he can operate in stealth mode (right in front of us) in hopes that his mixture of wickedness, corruptness and deceitfulness will not be noticed; he tries to override perception by injecting himself right into's invasive. It's the simple, subtle things, that if wrong, can bring something to ruin, whether it be the foundation of a house or a man.

A few times this week, the subject of splinters has come up. We all have gotten one from time to time. If left untreated or not properly removed, a splinter can cause incredible infection, discomfort and problems for your overall health, Spiritually speaking, the same holds true. There are spiritual splinters that snag us, jab us, and get lodged way down deep. You can always tell, because there is a sore spot. In life it could be a finger tip, in spirit it could be a certain relationship; dependency or rift. Maybe its an activity that you know isn't pleasing to God. It could be a habit you've formed or some other infraction that you just cant seem to shake. It's the fly that spoiled the anointment (an old expression which sums it up nicely) and that's how the evil one likes to gain entry into our lives. Through subtle but destructive acknowledgements. Once he is in the door, he gains full access. Of course, it always leaves you feeling confused, bewildered and in denial (because you bought the lie), surely it cant be true that I asked for this mayhem and havoc on my life? Or did you?....When the subtle suggestion comes, like..."Oh, it's OK, no one will know"...more than someone knows (already there is you and Satan, besides God being aware of it) so guess whom you signed a contract with in that scenario? YUPP! Not good. He gains access without having to break in, and once he is in, well, when you are not looking, he begins to look for other areas of weakness and other doors to your conscience where you might not have best security system, often, he will convince you to give him access through some lie that he has convinced you of.

These days parents check their children from head to toe, for ticks, for lice for all sorts of parasites that they might have contracted as they are exposed through activities such as camping, school, sports and sleepovers. Why not check yourself and your family for the most deadly parasite of all? What do you do if you locate this interference? "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you"(Jas. 4:7)

Jesus refused the devil multiple times: (Matt. 4:1-11; Lk. 4:1-13; I Pet. 2:21-22)

"Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil" (Ex. 23:2).
  "Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away" (Prov. 4:14-15).
 "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil" (I Thess. 5:21-22)
 "abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul" (I Pet. 2:11)

ABBA Father, help us to be on high alert for the things that do not line up with your word. There is no room for choosing, accepting or receiving satan's deceipt. Help us to distinguish his lies over and above your anointed plans for our life. Keep our spiritual flesh free from these splinters. Help us to identify and remove hatred, envy, strife, jealousy, anger, disappointment and frustration. Remind us through your Mercy and Grace that all has been provided for us and that every challenge is an opportunity to learn, to grow or to make room for some other blessing that might be coming our way. In Jesus Mighty name, we pray AMEN!

Don't Give Up - Calling Glory

MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE FOR The Eternal Body Of Christ 9-17-12

Good Morninnnng,

I must admit, its slightly controversial discussing this the Lord has been weighing on my heart that there is a message here for someone, somewhere, who really needs to hear it, know it and receive it. You are about to get a birds eye view of the reality of choosing to follow in Godly obedience, the benefit & the cost of not following.

There was a time, when never on Friday or Saturday night, would I be at home, not on a date or out at some "In Spot" whooping it up and having a good time. That life is so far in my past, I don't miss it one bit, although it still calls out for me from time to time. My answer is always the same; "I just don't need you any more, you have nothing to offer me & I don't want to associate with you any longer!" It's just a fact, I have no desire for that in my life and have not for many years now. Why have I abstained from that type of recreation, lifestyle and social interactions; because it doesn't line up with what God has groomed me for, its contrary in nature to what I stand for and the experiences that are to be had in those environments are the ones that lead to hard life lessons. Seed sewn in good soil yields excellent fruit, seed sewn in the swamp yields fruit of another type, toxic and unedifying.

Here it was one of these nights and I was fixing to work on a project; I saw a picture of a lovely necklace which grabbed me instantly, it's composition & form were so lovely. It had a special pendant that read, "He held her like a seashell and listened to her heart". Just so whimsical, feminine & lovely! I knew at first glance that I could replicate this piece! Fast forward ahead, as I was making & assembling this necklace, I found myself having a discussion with the Lord, to which I exclaimed; "Well, Lord?, What about the "Boaz" you promised me, where is he?!...When are you going to send me The man that I deserve?"...Like a download into my spirit, heart & mind; Father spoke to me in such a pause & with these words..."I will not do that, He will treat you BETTER than you deserve, because that's what I want for you & how MUCH I love you!" I trembled in delight, immediately I became re-invested, entranced, excited and heart fixed on what God gave to me in that moment.

If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
(Matt. 7:11)
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
(James 1:17)

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. ( Isaiah 41:3)

"I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances… I have learned the secret of being content in
any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do
everything through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:11-13).

With this nugget, as a token of my extensive wait, He also began to reveal to me the flip side. What is happening to those in their lives, who are NOT WAITING UPON HIM, who are settling, selling out and/or dispersing their blessings before they are ever received. In an effort to NOT BE ALONE, many have found themselves in UnGodly relationships where they are more alone in the same room with another person than they would be had they stayed single. Many more are taking on demonic spirits of those whom they have coupled with, they are becoming overthrown by the demonic influences that haunt their mate. It's not fiction BUT fact, any copulation done outside the marriage Blessing of God's ordination IS NOT PROTECTED. Therefore, when two become one, you get all their baggage (spiritually & sometimes, physically too) Like a person wearing two different shoes or two totally different fragments forcibly merged together, there is no harmony, no real peace. To some degree, all of these things are happening to those who decide to assert their decision over Gods decision, thinking they can bypass Gods rules in conduct and precept. A person that treats you well is base minimum, status quo. God demands and insures that if you Trust and wait on Him you will not have to compromise your morals or your requirements in a Mate!

Pre-Marital Sex is SIN. Sex outside of marriage (i.e. “fornication” in the King James Version, “sexual immorality” in the NIV, pick your translation) is not something God glosses over in the Bible. “Fornication,” “fornications,” and “fornicators,” are all described as sin at least 43 times in the Bible, stretching from the Old Testament all the way to the end of the New Testament in the book of Revelation, where it is mentioned 12 times in 10 different scriptures (Rev. 2:14, 20, 21; 9:21, 14:8; 17:2, 4; 18:3, 9; 19:2). (
The way demons gain access into a believer's life, is through open doors. There are certain sins and things we can do that will defile us (make us unclean). For example, having unholy sex can create unholy soul ties, which serve as demonic bridges, and can pass bondages from one person to another. Another example is being bitter or unforgiving; both those are closely related and can defile a person (Hebrews 12:15).

If you are seeking God's best for your life, it requires a sacrifice. It's really not a sacrifice when you realize what you are being protected from! If you are tired of being treated wrong, begin by treating yourself right, turn to the Lord for His guidance, His protection and His selection for your life. No one knows better what the desires of your heart truly are than the one who formed it, who set the Heavens in motion and knew you as you were being knit together in the womb. He knows every thought, every need and can serve all of them if you only submit, believe and wait upon Him.

MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE FOR The Eternal Body Of Christ 9-10-12 ~ A Kiss Amiss

Goood Morninnnnnnnnnng,

Let;s take a look at a kiss amiss...


5 Open rebuke is betterThan love carefully concealed.

6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend,But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

A kiss is the ultimate token of respect & affection, a customary gesture since Biblical times. Obviously, there is an intimacy of a kiss between Husband & Wife above and beyond just a greeting where one kisses their friend on the cheek but present in all kisses is the trust or friendship affording that person the opportunity to be that close.

In the Bible there are two instances of betrayal, delivered with a kiss. Joab delivered a kiss by pulling Amasa in with one hand and thrusting a sword into the man's belly with the other. Judas' kiss, perhaps the most infamous of all, was executed on and against Jesus, that pivotal moment predicted and foretold of by Our Lord, as The Son of Man knew He was going to be betrayed.

In life, all relationships require trust; friendship, marriage & business. No body ever wants a secret enemy, hasn't everyone experienced this at some point or another? A perceived friend who truly isn't a friend at all. But here we have an example of a situation where a person might be close like a friend BUT lacking the ability to be a true friend when its needed most. I have close friends who have such respect for me that when I might have been misguided in a belief or idea have had the courage to say, Whoa!; wait a minute, this is heading in this direction and that is heading in that direction. I myself have had instances where I have had to dole out the bitter pill of truth in order to help someone from digging deeper into the trench they chose to bed down in.

Now, there is a character type to this illustration of the one who is the betrayer, they are also a person who refuses to be held accountable. We have all encountered ones such as this. They can not, will not and refuse to accept a rebuke of any kind. Who never want to be criticised, always have excuses for their actions, behaviours or mess-ups. No matter how awful the calamity or how much advise they have ignored, if you utter a word about it you are vilified & they bounce a tantrum. These are the very same people who shall betray you with a kiss. Lacking is the fiber of obligation & amenability. Their only allegiance is to their own agenda; trust, expectation & affection are simply avenues that they travel where they speed, run red lights, double park & then abandon their vehicles. Remember this, it only takes one time to distinguish them from the rest of the traffic, once you do, it's in everyone's best interest to steer away from them. If they want their own way, by all means, let them Have it!

Provers 12;15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkens unto counsel is wise.

Proverbs 21;2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD weighs the hearts.

Proverbs 16:2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.

Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jeremiah 2:19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that [it is] an evil [thing] and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear [is] not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

Psalms 97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

Proverbs 12:15The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.

Galatians 6:1-2Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. [2] Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Proverbs 27:17As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 12:26 A righteous man is cautious in friendship, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

Proverbs 22:24Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, o not associate with one easily angered,

Heavenly Father give us the wisdom and skill necessary to be a true friend, helping those whom we love and care for. Be the voice of reason and the guiding force behind all we say and do in accord with our worldly interactions. Likewise Lord, help us to realize those people and situtaions that are to be avoided, keep us from the casualties of casualness. Open our eyes to all truth, open our ears to Your words however you choose to send them to us and keep us in a proper state of receptiveness to those things which are meant for our correction. Bind the hands of the enemy as He seeks to make blood blood in firnedly circles and keep us tightly knit with those whom have proved themseleves trustworthy! In jesus Mighty name we pray AMEN!

Important Warning Regarding Your Cell Phone and Charging it!

‎: ( I used to leave my phone charging on bed....woke up to find it extremely hot one day...WILL NOT BE DOING THAT ANY LONGER.


this is very serious. I had an experience once where a battery hooked up to a charger exploded into a firey ball and shot across the room. It was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life, especially since a few minutes before it exploded I had been sitting right in front of where it placed on a desk. TALK ABOUT FRIGHTENING. THE charred burn hole that it left in heavy acrylic furniture was substantial. : (

We just cant trust this stuff! There has to be a safer way and for now IT MEANS CHARGE IT WHILE AWAKE AND SHUT IT OFF OVERNIGHT!

Share this!!!! ( )


I do this all the time! I guess I won't be doing it ANY more !

A few days ago, a person was recharging his mobile phone at home.

Just at that time a call came in and he answered it with the charging Instrument still connected to the outlet.

After a few seconds electricity flowed into the cell phone unrestrained and the young man was thrown to the floor with a heavy thud. As you can see, the phone actually exploded.

His parents rushed to the room only to find him unconscious, with a weak heartbeat and burnt fingers.

He was rushed to the nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Cell phones are a very useful modern invention.

However, we must be aware that it can also be an instrument of death.

Never use the cell phone while it is hooked to the electrical outlet! If you are charging the cell phone and a call comes in, unplug it from the charger and outlet.

MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE FOR The Eternal Body Of Christ 9-3-12 Labor to remain in his presence

Gooood Morninnnnnnnnnng.

1 Corinthians 15:58 58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

Abounding in the work of the Lord is a multifaceted approach to life; including worship, servitude, education, obedience and growth. The Lord is constantly working on us in our walk with Him but He does require our willingness, our obedience and our desire to submit to Him. God can not hone a man with steadfast impenetrable character until that man has recognized his own words, spread out like a blanket on display; either to be kept & honored or to be a mockery of personal disgrace.

Accountability is a constant with the Lord. He knows our faults and we surely can never live up. Given that, we have Grace to cover our shortcomings BUT we are still held accountable. We many not have this or that ability but we are expected to employ what we do have along with the good common sense we are gifted with. Putting in place the check points of security, adhering to the word, seeking His face and listening for His guidance.

Labor is a word that describes effort, work & endurance. We are instructed to be consistent and encouraged by this scripture that our efforts will be a benefit many both here and in the life to come.

Quality, content and consistency are important in our efforts because God is the readers of hearts. Going through the motions might impress Man but it does not sway our Lord. If you have deep love and respect for the Lord it is your desire to obtain that closeness and communion as often as possible. The children of God are not immune to the very words of exhortation that they deliver for others, nay, we are held to those same standards, if not more so, because scripture says; to whom much is given, much is required.

Luke 12:48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

It's not just about yourself and your own walk, it's about others as well. We are all here, in this together. How we help others is just as much of that labor as the efforts we expend in keeping our own hearts fixed on the Lord. So don't give up, you never know who you are encouraging as others observe your deep love for the Lord.
