MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE FOR The Eternal Body Of Christ 12/31/12 "As if"


Happy New Year to you (in advance, depending upon where you are in the world this very moment)

Today, I want you to repeat these words to yourself,"as if"...."as if", ...."AS IF"...Now let them echo in your head for a moment. What comes to mind? The purpose of this exercise is to gently rouse your spirit conscious. There are some poignant scriptures that God has left for us, to help us deal with the fearful mind, we have dominion over fear (through scripture). Destructive Fear is not of God, (although there is a HEALTHY fear of the Lord and rightfully so)  as in * Rev 14:7 Negative fear needs to be viewed as a weapon of the enemy, similar to a spiritual grenade. If you operate "as if" something bad is going to happen, two bad things are born of it; the new way you have put on and the way you've imagined it fearfully in your mind. After all, the Lord returning, is a Good thing, it's something as Christians that feels an awful lot like your first day at Kindergarten, the anticipation, waiting for your parent to return to get you, that feeling of knowing at the end of the day You just want to go home!

  * “Fear God,” he shouted. “Give glory to him. For the time has come when he will sit as judge. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and all the springs of water.” Revelation 14:7 

We are approaching 2013, and there is a lot of chatter about end of world prophecies, Mayan Calendar, end of days 'talkity talk' going on. It sure would be helpful if God would tell us exactly what to say, think and do, (considering all of the above). Oh wait, He does have IMPORTANT information and guidance specific to this :) So specific in fact, that it's downright complicated, about as complicated as a pulse, either you've got one & you're good or you've got & you're not.

The Bible shows us that God wants you to NOT be focused or obsessed with the details (the surprise arrival will be on us*(1Thess 5:2-3), not the other way around. We should be about our Father's business all the day long. It is not so much even a secret, as it is UNKNOWN, why does He say no one knows, *other than to Him? (*Matt 24:36)   More than likely, the time in which the return occurs rests within the changing nature of events as they unfold; Divine Providence & Free Will needing to balance their selves out consistently. It is a comforting thought to think it could be sooner if needed or prolonged to gather more souls (*Matt 24;22)

 * 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3
 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
* Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

* Matthew 24:36
The Day and Hour Unknown

36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[a] but only the Father.

 Luke 12:40

 40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

2 Timothy 2:15
15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

So there you have it, God's suggestion is be ready. He wants us to remain assured IT WILL HAPPEN, but we are to operate "AS IF" it could happen at any moment, right now, today, any second. Spend time periodically through your day to assess how you are feeling about life, plans, events and this empty calender inviting you to ignore where we are in history or to embrace it. Pencil God in for every day! He will Come and Go with you in all that you need to do. Then you can Trust His perfect timing that all will be well for those who Love and serve the Lord!

Watch & Listen
Revelation Song

HEAVENLY FATHER, as we see this world around us, the great need, the ever changing landscape of family values, the way people treat each other, their time, their bodies, their friends and their relationship with YOU. The world around is both shaped by us and shapes the stage for each moment to follow, a living, evolving tapestry of human existence. Lord, rework us, every fiber, into the finest of Your pure wool and use us to complete Your Eternal Masterpiece. Empower and embolden us to live Your example and be the presence of You in this world. In Jesus Mighty name we pray amen!

THE MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE FOR The Eternal Body Of Christ 12-17-12 Our Nation In Mourning- Sandy Hook





There is just no making sense of a senseless act of EVIL, no matter what may have caused or inspired it. No words, no precautions, no measures could counteract the unknown. Could we ever hope to grasp the magnitude of it? Such an awful tragedy and it calls light to the fact that we live in a very, very sick world.

Explanations, excuses, reasons, inadequacies, whatever the cause, whatever the means, whatever the description, it all boils down to the irrefutable fact. The ONLY hope or help we have is in a restored relationship with our Lord. Many think they will have time to strengthen this relationship, many think they will have time to repair it, if it’s broken and others do not even have such a relationship. That is why these types of tragedies occur.

Our world is at a point spoken of as exceeding wicked, as God’s word prophetically warns us, we need to invoke a worldwide human/spiritual transformation. A Global awakening with a divine reformation.

We need to bring GOD back into the schools, during mealtime as grace, or at night with eyes & hands clasped tight for bedtime prayer. Your presence, Lord, is needed in every interaction throughout Our Day to Day lives. Lord, we need this world radically adjusted, we need an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon every consciousness.

Now is the time! The actions and choices made in the now determine where our eternal footprints will be found, whether they be on heavenly soil or that of dark, eternal misery.

I literally envision every person I have ever met, visualizing them as I send… love, friendship, joy, happiness, blessings, forgiveness or truth, depending upon what my time with them has taught me. Lord, let this serve as a Global shift into the Kingdom reign upon earth. Let us all take stock of what we really value, let it not be in the tangible! Let us all appreciate every moment of every blessing we are bestowed with. Help us to recognize and interact with everyone in full knowledge that we are all connected. We all fall short, we all need God we all ought to JUST PRAY FOR a better today and a better tomorrow.

LORD, let us commence with STRENGTH AND POWERFUL PRAYERS of PEACE AND SUPPORT for those families, friends and responders affected by this HORRIBLE Tragedy! We are all collectively affected BUT LORD, THESE ones specifically, place them in a divine state of protection, mentally, physically and spiritually. Lord, we lift them up to YOU for ONLY YOU could possible sustain the hearts and minds of us fragile human beings in the face of such atrocities. We petition YOU for the assistance that only You can provide. Help us all Lord, to reach out and make a difference in any way that we can. Prayers are so powerful Lord, if only more would just do that. May we all find ourselves turning and returning to YOUR LOVING ARMS. In Jesus Precious Name AMEN!

Some people are responding by doing 20 acts of Random Kindness  (I kinda like that one) and instead of turning out Christmas lights (which I have heard that some have because they feel guilty celebrating)...we need to respond in the opposite way...we NEED TO CELEBRATE EVEN MORE, THAT IS WHAT THOSE CHILDREN WOULD HAVE WANTED & FOR THEIR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR, THEIR JOY IS COMPLETE. In the ARMS of JESUS!
Below is a collection of stories, pictures and encouraging words from all over. May we all find a way to process this grief, honour their memories and heal from this great tragedy.

Twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"this is heaven." declared a small boy. "we're spending Christmas at God's house."
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of mom and dad."
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"may this country be delivered from the hands of fools"
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"come now my children, let me show you around."
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."

Photo: Dedicated to my friends in their time of loss: deepest sympathy, much love, many tears and endless prayers! Continued prayers for them are needed and appreciated! Thank you everyone!!!!

MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE FOR The Eternal Body Of Christ 12-10-12 -Appointed & anointed, these are the days.

Gooood Morninnnnnng,


I was out shopping for a new calendar & daily planner the other day, knowing I will be needing one for the new year ahead. These are great to plan schedules far into the future. One thing I noticed is that  they all come with several dates pre-printed, national holidays & days of remembrance, whether you choose to observe or not, they are listed and come to pass with our without our consent. These days are appointed for us. Where as the other dates on the calendar are free to be planned.

In life, there are two such dates noted on OUR LIFE CALENDAR; that of which when we are born and that of which when we die and the two go hand in hand, both are inevitable. God is the appointment setter.

      The remainder of our life calendar is up to us to decide, plan & choose. A high school graduation date or our drop out date is decided by a person's actions. A marriage date or a divorce date, also,... humanly inspired! Our life planner is primarily filled with events & circumstances that are the result of our own thinking, actions & choices.

 There is one date that can be carried over for eternity, for every year going forward. The day that you turn your entire life over to the Lord, appointed and anointed. This date, like our birth & death date fall under the dominion of Gods divine timing.  He can be trusted with every plan we have for our life, after all He has a plan for it too, getting in synch with His plan is the purpose of all those empty square days!

Scriptures On God's Timing bar
And saying, The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled (completed), and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent (have a change of mind which issues in regret for past sins and in change of conduct for the better) and believe (trust in, rely on, and adhere to) the good news (the Gospel). Mark 1: 15
Scriptures On God's Timing bar
Be on your guard [constantly alert], and watch and pray; for you do not know when the time will come. Mark 13: 33

Scriptures On God's Timing bar

He said to them, It is not for you to become acquainted with and know what time brings [the things and events of time and their definite periods] or fixed years and seasons (their critical niche in time), which the Father has appointed (fixed and reserved) by His own choice and authority and personal power. Acts 1: 7
Scriptures On God's Timing bar
Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it]. Hebrews 4: 16
Scriptures On God's Timing bar
Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non-Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity. Colossians 4: 5

But as to the suitable times and the precise seasons and dates, brethren, you have no necessity for anything being written to you.
1 Thessalonians 5: 1
Scriptures On God's Timing bar
And now you know what is restraining him [from being revealed at this time]; it is so that he may be manifested (revealed) in his own [appointed] time. 2 Thessalonians 2: 6

MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE FOR The Eternal Body Of Christ 12/3/12---Preparation and Process

Gooood Morninnnnnnnnng,

The focus this week is on the word "preparation" AND "process". after all, everything that is, is the result of preparation. This week He has shown us about "gratitude", I heard a wonderful sermon about "meditation" about how what we rehearse in our mind directly affects what opportunities we are brought into and what results we are most likely going to get. All of these attitudes and actions are a form of preparation. There is a certain amount of attention that God wants us to be engaged in, but there's also a certain amount of motion & action on God's part, of Him taking action upon us. The result of being in his presence, being very intimate with Him, finds us predisposed to that very undertaking and being conformed and transformed to be more like Him.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Are you prepared for more of God on your life?
Are you prepared to put off more of yourself in order that He may dwell and abide with Greater Presence? Are you prepared to receive the blessings that He has in store for you? Are you prepared for the challenges? Careful introspection points out that some bitter pills are responsible for a lot of your most impressive spiritual skills. God's chisel brings forward the beautiful while it simultaneously sloughs off the external debris of life. That's the process!

Heavenly Father, please reveal to us what we are to expect, embolden us to strive beyond the limitations that we once perceived as impenetrable. Bring us into closer communion with You. Fortify our resolve to be in Your presence, to carry out your will, bringing the light of the Gospel to every corner of every heart on earth. That every heart would delight in thee, every mouth would speak Your praises, know Your name(s), Promises, Power and Might! In Jesus Mighty Name AMEN

Be in His word, to be closer. Be about His business. Be about His agenda, not another.

          Galations 5:13-26
          Life by the Spirit

13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh[a]; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”[b] 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever[c] you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited,provoking and envying each other.
