Ravi Zacharias, A Legacy No More

1 Cor. 3:13-15 ~ 13 - Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 - If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 - If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

The saga that has unfolded in the death of the late Evangelist Ravi Zacharias has been of epic proportions. It is a sad tale that causes everyone to shriek with wonder regarding how a man of such august pulpit character, biblical knowledge and austere demeanor could be addicted to sex so much that he led a secret lifestyle of not only sexual promiscuity, but also a lifestyle of abuse and misuse of those subordinate to him in ministry.  

“We are in the process of taking down Ravi’s content from our website and social media platforms, including publications, videos, and other forms of content, and we intend to change the name of the organization. Effective immediately, we are also discontinuing the use of “The Zacharias Institute” brand,” ~ Sara Davis CEO and Daughter of Ravi Zacharias

Recently, according to Premiere Christian News, the ministry soon to be formerly knows as RZIM, has committed itself to removing all reference to the minister known as Razi Zacharias, and is evidently intent on removing his name from all material they reference and provide the Christian community, as well as changing the name of the ministry itself, so that there will be no record or reference of Ravi Zacharias in any form.

“We are in the process of taking down Ravi’s content from our website and social media platforms, including publications, videos, and other forms of content, and we intend to change the name of the organization. Effective immediately, we are also discontinuing the use of ‘The Zacharias Institute’ brand.”~ Sara Davis CEO & Daughter of Ravi Zacharias
Struggling with sexual addiction is enough, but when that leads to abuse and maltreatment of others, it displays an even larger problem with character, that is not so easily reconciled or put away as "bad" behavior. 

1 Cor. 11: 27-32 ~ 27 - Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 - But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 - For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30 - For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 - For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 - But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

We often and only think of 1 Cor. 11 in light of  a communion ceremony, however the fact is that we have relationship with the Lord (eat his flesh and drink his blood) DAILY as we have a daily communion and fellowship with the Lord as believers. We are to examine ourselves daily and make sure that we are in a repentant posture and willing to forsake and repudiate our sins and evil that makes itself known to us daily. In doing these things, the power over sin is displayed, as no one committed to their sins is willing to report because of them. 

Examination In The Mirror Of Truth!

Truth be told, I have certainly had to look in the mirror of God's word in repentance in my life. What I did not know at the time of the most pain, much of which I inflicted upon myself, and had to learn, was that there is never a time that a leader should look to "leave" or remove himself from the altar of God's redemption. 

See, we have been taught that repentance is a "stage" or a part of salvation and many, including most ministers I know, have laid it out in their soteriology as a "step" in the process of salvation. However, what if repentance is something that God requires of us DAILY? What if, we are to repent and maintain the posture of repentance at all times and that there never is a time when and where we are grown enough, in this life, to leave the altar? 

No, I don't believe that our faith is shaky, or on unstable ground. The bible says that "the FOUNDATION of God stands sure, the Lord knows them that are HIS" (2 Timothy 2:19) but the latter part of that verse says,
"And let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from his iniquity"

Them that are "HIS" cannot simply resolve to live with addictions, sins and failures. Repentance, is a LIFETIME proposition and when one thinks that he or she has passed a certain stage and has defeated the enemies that Christ has defeated and given us the tools to maintain victory over, we deceive ourselves and set ourselves up for failure. 

My experience: You see, pre-failure, it was all about me...what I lacked, and or needed and how I was being treated...Post-failure, or Post -VICTORY, I learned it is all about CHRIST, what he desires of us and how we can please and serve him daily and being sensitive to HIS thought and attitude towards what we are doing and what we embrace. 

The trappings of sin tap into our self-serving nature. Our desire to please ourselves and find a "comfort" whereby we are satisfied. The flesh finds comfort in sin and evil to that extent. The only thing that can break the power of sin and addiction is the Cross of Christ. Sadly, when that is not allowed to happens a continuous process, all that is left is frustration, addiction and abuse. Similarly as Amnon "hated" his sister with a equal or greater passion as he had "loved" her prior to raping her (1 Sam. 13), the only thing left after unbridled passion and unrepented for sin  is hatred of self, and that is normally displayed by and through the abuse of others. The key to understanding Amnon was that he hated his sin so much until he mad Tamar, the sister he had violated the object of his hate. Blind rage was the result. That is how sin entangles itself and deceives the flesh. 

We are praying for the Zacharias family. I could not imagine my daughter having to heal my wife and dispose of my legacy and life's work because of the utter shame that it brought to life and living, especially after all the sacrifice to do just the opposite in this world and life. Yep, I certainly am taking heed and I encourage every ministerial leader to do the same. Let's us all learn the message that Dr. Ravi never explicitly taught, but that God is teaching us by example. 

Blessed!

ALL Is Not Lost...COGIC General Election Turmoil...Who Has The Authority?


It seems that the secular world is not the only place where there is election turmoil and confusion during COVID times. There seems to be "confusion" and mixed messages over exactly what to do and who is authorized to do it. 

SHORT STORY:

Former Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake chose not to seek reelection. Allegedly, and according to church rules his term as Presiding Bishop expired in November 2020. A date was set to hold a VIRTUAL General Assembly December 28th, 2020. At that time a date of Feb. 23rd 2021 was set to hold the Quadrennial Election for Presiding Bishop and General Board Members of our church. Allegedly 93% of delegates voted to conduct the election during that time as opposed to waiting until April of 2021. Under  normal circumstances the election would have been held in November 2020, so the time was already past for which a decision should have been made by the General Assembly. However, to make matters worse,  there were 4 General Board Members who had passed away and 2 (including Bishop Blake) not seeking reelection. 

That information can be confirmed HERE at about the 12:55 mark into the video. 

This is where the waters get kind of MURKY:

Well, it seems that on the Feb. 23rd date, not only was it unusually cold and half the country was in an unexpected deep freeze, which allegedly knocked many delegates out of the ability to vote at the appropriate time, but according to a letter sent to COGIC Delegates, by Bishop L.F. Thuston, The Chair Of The General Assembly, there were many unnamed "IRREGULATIRIES" in voting that occurred causing the leaders of the General Assembly to shut down the vote. ALLEGEDLY all parties concerned agreed to suspend the General election until such a time as was acceptable, this included the FORMER Presiding Bishop in his now technically nonexistent role...Yea, I know more confusion...

Well, it gets even worse...According to Bishop Thuston, the ACTUAL election is to take place March 20th...and ALL previous votes are to be zeroed out and everyone, including those who voted previously, are to vote again. 

This has led the FORMER Presiding Bishop to make a statement as we can hear for ourselves in this video:


As of this writing, there is an alleged letter being circulated among COGIC Bishops from the Presiding Bishop, or FORMER Presiding Bishop Blake instructing nobody to vote on March 20th, and wait until April to take up the entire matter. However, is that what should be done?

Serious QUESTIONS Have Arisen that must be addressed

Has the General Board Powers Expired because we are beyond November in which their term, all terms have expired?

If an election is had tomorrow, are the votes valid and binding? 

Does Former Presiding Bishop Blake have any authority to call a General Board Session to any degree while General Assembly is in session?

Remember, the General Assembly is the ONLY legislative and rule making authority in the Grand Ole Church. It doesn't matter what a preacher preaches and or believes. Only the General Assembly makes laws of the church. (Believe me, it's a complex relationship and I don't mean to over simplify it, as the General Assembly also includes the Bishops) 

So an additional question does Bishop's Thuston's have power as Chair of General Assembly to wield as he supposes in tandem with or with the authority of the General Assembly? 

The COGIC  JUDICIARY BOARD
"The Judiciary Board is the Supreme Court of the Church Of God In Christ, Inc. (COGIC). As the final authority of questions of ecclesiastical constitutional doctrine, it maintains balance between the Legislative (General Assembly) and Executive Branch (General Board). The Judiciary Board is also the final appellate forum of the COGIC for disputes, except in cases that have been appealed to the Presiding Prelate for executive clemency (i.e. Pastoral and Bishops removals and Church disorganization).

The Judiciary Board is comprised of nine members from Episcopal, Ministerial and General Assembly categories of the church. Three members are Jurisdictional Bishops (Episcopal); three members are elders other than bishops (Ministerial); and three members are from the church at large (General Assembly). Board members are elected and retained in office by the General Assembly.

Each member cannot serve more than two terms; nor can he or she serve more than 14 years in office, unless approved by the delegates of the General Assembly. Each Judiciary Board member is at least 45 years of age and an active member of the Church Of God In Christ in good standing. Because their duties require them to function as “judges,” it is imperative that each possess mature judgment, proven ability, integrity and a thorough knowledge of the Church Of God In Christ constitution and doctrine." ~ COGIC Judiciary Board
There appears to be a "court of appeal" to settle these issues. What is certain is that these questions can be answered and addressed and the situation is, in my opinion, not as desperate as it seems. 

The JUDICIARY is the only organization within COGIC that determines standing and ultimately authority under the church's constitution. It is the JUDICIARY headed by COGIC Chief Justice Bishop Martin Luther Johnson, that should be entrusted to make the final rule as it pertains to the Constitutional or organizational operations on this matter. Until then, all things are comments, observations and suggestions.

We deserve much more than that on all things and should be in a better position to know what is going on AFTER Judiciary has received the arguments and reviewed the cases.

CONCLUSION 

In short, it seems that everyone wants to see COGIC broken up yet again. COGIC is responsible for I would say, nearly 20 to 30% of independent churches that exist today. For one reason or another a COGIC Minister, Elder and in some cases Bishop, left COGIC to start their own church. Many for good cause and being led of the Lord because God is greater than any denomination or organization among men...HOWEVER, COGIC can certainly weather this storm. 

COVID has come to reveal motives and that is exactly what has happened. I have said time and time again, what needs to be asked of any and all future leaders, is what is the agenda for God's people? It needs to be more than just updating computers or buying land. It needs to be centered around SOULS, doing JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS of God. It must be against pedophiles and abusers of men and women in church. It must take an OPEN stand against sexual promiscuity and homosexual sins and perversions. 

These are things that are right and all I really care about...LET GOD ARISE AND HIS ENEMIES BE SCATTERED!

Absolute Proof by Mike Lindell

Watch the exposĂ© "ABSOLUTE PROOF" by clicking HERE

One thing you won't do is find any of this information mentioned or even debated on your local or even national news.

You will find haters and lazy reporters claiming that this information is "false" without even saying why and on what basis they make their assumptions and they will say that the information has already been heard and dismissed by the courts, which is also not true. In fact there has been 2 cases in which evidence has been heard and BOTH are continuing to progress through the system in the respective states. 

Then you will find "cancel culture" through public web sites such as twitter and facebook and others who want to cancel alternate voices simply because they do not wish to hear them and then the disinformation that has been steadily delivered to the Black community and various community groups that have taken their toll on the American psyche so much until many can't recognize irrationality and you know what I believe about the church, many of whom have lost all discernment when it comes to deciphering TRUTH and substantive issues. 

Why is all this? 

Follow the money. Big company owns the news and too many big companies are under Communist influence and many of those under the influence of Communist and Social control own big company!

Ask yourself, how is it that only big name companies could stay open during the pandemic while small business was required to close...Ask yourself why politicians, who in many cases relied on the church and petitioned the church for votes, were some of the first to claim that church and religion was "non-essential". This is even against the GUARANTEED protection of "Free Exercise Clause" of religion in the United States Constitution, which is unabridged by a pandemic as many lawmakers and judges have now and finally concluded.

We should ask why the courts, while even reading the State laws and State Constitutions, which in many cases stated verbatim that under the LAW no entity in the State could change elections laws and rules other than the legislatures, were allowed to proceed with changes by judges and sole election commissioners?

I don't even want to mention the machines as is thoroughly covered in the video, but we should ask why, our favorite news personalities and organizations are not covering or demanding full disclosure of the truth...

I have already said...We have been under an attack by China and their Communist Government. This was done against the world, with the WHO in tow and that was in response to many policies of the Trump administration.

Lawsuits & Litigation

I believe as time goes on, we will see this picture more closely, but it doesn't sound like the lawsuits leveled against this man are unwelcomed. In fact those lawsuits will allow abject exposure of information and may even been withdrawn due to the fact that ALL information will be exposed for companies seeking judgments. In essence, to claim defamation guarantees that if there is any nefarious activities or fraud, it will be exposed. 

My Pillow

In a facebook forum, they were saying that noone should buy a "My Pillow" again. I responded by saying that I was going to buy as many as I can. They asked "why"? 

Well, after reviewing this information, I plan to buy as many My Pillow products as I can to help keep the business and Mr. Lindell bringing quality services and information to the community.

Blessed!

"There Is No Such Thing As A Perpetual Emergency" A Reversion To COMMON SENSE

In the 2nd article within a week that I have done that includes "Common Sense" in the title, The Blaze has noted that at least the Wisconsin Legislature is thinking clearly and using "common sense" and has made the first step in taking back their state from the Gubernatorial Dictatorship that nearly bankrupted it like Governor's orders are bankrupting others states all over the country. 

"It is not OK or normal or inevitable or necessary to indefinitely suspend the lawmaking process,") ..."There is no such thing as a perpetual emergency." ~  Wisconsin state Sen. Duey Stroebel (R)

Peeling back the individual citizen mask mandate (similar to the order that President Biden signed then immediately violated for a photo op) the Governor unscientifically demanded the public to wear masks like Americans are collectivists. Be factual, there is NO evidence that mask mandates even work, yet along should be a forever article of clothing that Americans should wear, which is exactly what some people actually believe. Using COMMON SENSE, the Wisconsin legislature recognized the startling fact that an indefinite quarantine is also an ineffective quarantine, and therefore removed the ridiculous need to close every business and keep Americans from gathering, even in churches during an emergency. In a separate action, the Blaze reports that legislature has also have taken steps to remove the vaccine requirement that some business are beginning to impose on employees in light of the covid vaccine craze that is also hitting all parts of the country including the Midwest in particular.  

Fact is in San Francisco, CA over 50% of small business that were in existence prior to covid and the resultant shut down order will not be back in business, leaving hundreds of thousands to either move, or find employment elsewhere or at the best, begin their own businesses which are at risk to future covid hysteria and gubernatorial fascism. 

Suddenly Covid Is Not As Bad

All this has come amid many of these same fascist Governor's and leaders suddenly finding that the State doesn't have to remain closed and citizens go bankrupt in order to deal with covid 19. 

Governor Andrew Cuomo of NY, who has been accused by the NY Attorney General's office of underreporting the deaths of Senior's and the elderly in Nursing homes in his state, by nearly 50%, Mayor Muriel Bowser of DC who rejected President Trump's call for National Guard troops PRIOR to the Capitol riot incident on Jan. 6th, Governor Gavin Newsome of CA who is facing a serious recall effort in his state and who, like Cuomo, believe that the "free exercise clause" of religion guaranteed within the Constitution meant very little to nothing, and the "queen of the Midwest" herself, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who has allegedly ignored court orders, and violated Michigan's State Constitution and is currently under the process of impeachment, have suddenly, now that Joe Biden is President (and seemingly FOR NO OTHER REASON) decided that their States should be open and that something needs to be done to salvage their States's economy and welfare. Suddenly, after a Trump Presidency, the economics and wellbeing of the financial community of millions within their states has become a huge concern. 

What makes this startling is that according to the numbers, alleged new covid infections  continue to be high. Some 155,629 new infections as of Jan 27th, 2021. This is as compared to 74,224 on Nov. 1st 2020. At that time these same officials were noplace close to considering that their state economies should be reopened and were steadily closing and regulating everything and doing their best to close and keep churches closed. Yet these same officials now see a benefit in opening their states and restarting their economies, even when there is possibly two or three new covid 19 variants that have been confirmed, some concluding the new variants to be more virulent even than the initial strain. 

As stated, somehow, these same political officials could not see the light of day under President Donald Trump and criticized states such as Florida, Texas and South Dakota, who's economies continue to thrive at comparative rates far ahead of these "shut down" and "follow the science" states and leaders, but yet those open states still have not altogether bankrupted or abandoned their citizens, nor seen the out of control numbers of covid infections and deaths. 

I say that this is a sad situation and the communist oriented, and even fascist leaders, and for the record I define fascism as dictitorialism and suppression by forcible means,  as they have proven themselves to be, are in a word, pathetic (politically, not personally) and should be exposed for their hypocrisy and even held accountable for the train of destruction that THEY themselves have left in the wake of their politics and bogus orders. 

But what will the public do? Will we continue to believe the lie, as has been believed to place Joe Biden in office, or will we finally take and make a stand and demand, thorough peaceful means and LEGAL processes that only LEGAL votes be counted in our elections and that our processes embrace all AMERICAN CITIZENS in that process? 

I don't know what people will ultimately decide, but anyone who believes that biological men should be able to share and overtake women's rights, and hijack the definition of what it means to be a woman, and endorses baby murder through abortion and even late term and partial abortion will NEVER have my vote and or endorsement because God and life mean far too much to me to silently or otherwise endorse such actions that will surely be judged in the worst manner by God. 

Blessed!

Color Communism & Common Sense. TRUE Black History And The Plot To Use The Black Community Against America

I must say that of all the posts that I have done, this would have to be one of the top 10 both in personal interest and public urgency, but I suppose, that because so many people love sensationalism, it won't reach the top 20 in my listing of nearly 700 posts on this blog. Why am I so pessimistic? Because this video and subsequent read, reveals some deep truth regarding the current condition of America and the Black American community and does not blame White people, using this new buzz word "systemic racism" (that even liberal Whites have adopted to describe systems that they have implemented) for the current condition of social and political unrest that we are experiencing today. 

Yes, this information is deeply revealing. It reveals a concerted effort to use a system of Boule Blacks and common Blacks, by never allowing racial injustice to heal. This information reveals communism in its mission to overthrow the United States and I have personally seen, witnessed and documented these forces in action. What makes it so bad is that this revelation is nothing new. It has existed since prior to its formation as a way to change America, undermining its values and eliminating the CHURCH and its voice as it upholds freedom and morality in a free society. 

COLOR COMMUNISM & COMMON SENSE was written by Manning Johnson (12/17/1908 - 7/2/1959), who was the former Communist Party USA pick for representative in New York's 22nd congressional district in 1935. His book, can be read in its entirety HERE

The Attack On America Began When President Trump Was Elected

The Dunamis Word stands in solidarity with every American citizen and persons from around the world that LOVES this country to affirm condemnation of the attack on the United States Capitol on Jan. 6th, 2021 and to decry the loss of life associated with anarchist actions. 

Further, we also condemn the egregious acts of violence perpetrated in the name of social justice and criminal justice reform and at times displaying as equally anarchist actions and values that have occurred from city to city and in various places all over the United States for the last 9 months or so. We condemn and decry the nearly 1000 police injured during those times and nearly 40 lives lost of both police and citizens in what can only be deemed as peaceful protests run amuck and gone wrong into anarchy and violence.  

These are FACTUAL statements. The only part in question is that the loss of life over the last nine months were caused by the group BLM or adherents to that group. Although these things occurred at BLM rallies and protests, which called for the destruction and even demise of America and its values, the lives lost do not necessarily reflect the actions of the citizens who protested. 

So what do we have? At worst we have individuals dedicated to anarchy, who are opportunists seeking to destroy America, her values and what she stands for. Some seek to do this by changing and rewriting her history internally, while others seek to kill and damage her influence socially and politically.

Censorship  

The sad part is that none of the political dissent or those angry over the attack on the Capitol are in a superior place. The EVIDENCE affirms and continues to come out that people, not loyal to Trump, were in the crowd and were those who led, inspired and carried out violence against the nation's Capitol. As far as we know right now, the attack was not organized on a large scale, was not directly carried out by those seeking to solidify or call for a review of the many voting irregularities and FRAUD that occurred in battleground states in the November 2020 election.

The New Corporate Communism 

The response to the attack on the Capitol was the creation of a new private based Corporate Socialism and the development of a new Corporate Communist State whose corporate and unelected leaders conspired to shut down all opposing voices and scrub the public of all narratives that were and are contrary to the "liberal state" and liberal state news inspired versions of the election, with a demand that all adherents say that it, the 2020 Presidential election, had been fairly contested, and was free of fraud.  

Aside from the fact that the latter is a complete fantasy and the ultimate demand for the individual to embrace state centered propaganda, this demand is in and of itself a huge problem. Who made twitter, google, facebook and amazon purveyors of the American good, welfare and social, moral and economic well being? By what standards do they choose whose "voice" is good for America or representative of truth? How are companies, not chosen by the United States Government nor representative "of by and for the people", the quasi-people's representatives to act in censoring the words of a sitting and duly elected President of the United States, otherwise known as the most powerful person of the "free world"?

Socialist Inspired Conspiracy

Then, these same conglomerates censored companies given to free speech and exchange of ideas such as Parler, even conspiring, like Communist oligarchs, to drive them off of the internet in the name of "public good" and "welfare" of America.   

However, it is those same companies that fanned the flames of lies, deceit, distrust and political unrest for the last nine months and in my opinion allowed their platforms to be used in causing the deaths and discomfort of countless thousands if not millions of American and people and free loving citizens worldwide. 

Currently twitter and facebook are yet sources and ripe bastions of hate speech against religious and politically conservative causes and people. Hate inspired rants and calls for destruction of Americans and American values are proliferated on those venues without any censure from the organizations. amazon yet sells books and publications that demand for the destruction of the United States, blames being "White" on all the failures of America and otherwise seeks to blame America for all the problems and inequities in the world.  While Iranian leaders can call for the destruction of free nations such as American and Israel, these same venues thought that our President should be banned from speaking. These institutions, twitter, amazon and facebook, supports known actors of public discord and abusers of the public trust by giving them an unbridled platform of hate and oppressive speech while obsessively so called "fact checking" and deactivating the accounts of those who are really speaking freely and patriotically.  

Impeach Until The Sky Is Blue

"Peacefully & Patriotically
Make Your Voices Heard"
According to a Jan 20th 2017 article by Time Magazine Online, the radical left wanted and called to impeach President Trump as soon as he was inaugurated. According to the New York Times, failed Presidential Candidate and democrat party donor Tom Steyer, demanded that the democrat party make a Trump impeachment a priority even demanding them to pledge to do so. According to PolitiFact House Representative Maxine Waters consistently called for Presidential impeachment of Donald Trump while yet claiming that she didn't.  Then we all know "The Squad" member Rashida Talib, who ran on a campaign promise to "impeach the mother fxxxxx" speaking of a conversation she had with her son regarding a sitting and duly elected United States President. All Summer long the group Black Lives Matter inspired rallies, many of which led to absurd violence and eventual partial city takeovers called "CHOP Zones", with leaders simultaneously calling for the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump. As of today the US House Of Representatives have voted for a second time to impeach the President although the matter won't be taken up by the Senate until after a new President has taken the oath of office on Jan. 20th. 

Prior to this, we all know about the fantasy laden and tax payer wasted dollars spent by the Pelosi led House in effort to prove Russia collusion and ultimately impeach the President the first time over statements they tried to make us all believe that were coercive made to a Ukrainian leader, while avoiding and overlooking statements and actions of Hunter Biden and even Joe Biden himself and his compromised position as it pertains to China and other foreign venues as sworn by previous business partner and decorated war veteran Tony Bobulinski. 

All of this more than suggests that America was under attack, as soon as the Trump/Pence ticket took on the phrase "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" and declared an "America First" world economic and social policy. In the minds of those who enjoy the American freedoms, but hate American values, America had never been great. It had always been a problematic nation since inception and they, out of their hearts, knew above all things that Trump was inciting the worst of America, claiming that was "great"...

What a sad state of affairs and what a depth of hatred in the hearts and minds of many. 

The COUNTER CULTURE Alternative

What we should know is that because the hypocrisy is so deep and real, and because the hate perpetuated,  during a world wide pandemic, has invaded the church and society so deeply until it is now nearly unrecognizable, as many have long lost any sense of discernment, I believe that the entire community of faith MUST find itself headlong on its face in repentance and prayer if she can do nothing else.

Hosea 10:12 "break up your follow ground"

The "follow ground" was the ground unbroken and unfit to receive seed. It was thorny and unprepared ground that was unable to yield a fruitful bounty to a sower without being entangled with the thorns of the world. This is that ground cited by Jesus in Lk 8:7 among which the seeds fell, began to grow, but were ultimately choked out. 

Donald Trump has invaded territory and issues that certain leaders in America did not want challenged. He has honored Israel and made accomplishments such as facilitating the Abraham peace accords and significantly reducing the presence of American soldiers in foreign venues. All of these things and many others have made him the target of devils and demons intent on world destruction and even domination and ultimately, in their minds, the elimination of the church, which is the only preservative of the world today. 

In all these things, we are more than conquerors! We are more than victorious! We have already won the battle and God's will, above all things, will be done. As I write this, I wonder will my refusal to acknowledge that the 2020 election was fair, cause the new Corporate Communist censors of google to rise...but if so...I GLADLY make my stand and affirm the TRUTH, that YES, this election was stolen, manipulated and many voted who had no legal authority to vote. There were many other issues raised and many other concerns that could be named and I would say that some people may be telling a lie, but certainly EVERYONE is not lieing about this or these things and there is ample evidence to cause serious inquiry instead of the passive back-hand slap that has been delivered so far. 

In spite of all that, I pray that we will move on and move forward as a country and correct the wrong that has been recognized and seek to make our process one of better integrity and something actually representative of the voting public and the wishes of American citizens. 

Blessed!

A WORD From The Lord ~ Hidden Among The "Stuff"

 Bishop Charles E Blake, Presiding Bishop Of the Church Of God In Christ has called for a solemn assembly of Saints with fasting & prayer on Tuesday December 8th, 2020 from 6:00Am to 6:00PM in each time zone all over the world. 

While this is a good thing, as prayer and fasting is always in order, the LORD spoke to me regarding the condition of the church also, in an open vision, this is what I saw and heard:

With the backdrop of a crowd of ministers and church leaders in my view, I heard the Lord ask:

"WHERE ARE YOU?" 

I responded by asking, "Who are you taking about Lord?" 

to which he replied:

"MY LEADERS..."

I spoke, "There they are Lord"

He responded, "NO, FOR THEY HAVE HIDDEN THEMSELVES AMONGST THE STUFF!"

Immediately he showed me 2 things within scripture: 

1- Adam & Eve hiding themselves from the presence of God among the trees and draping themselves with fig leaves after they had sinned against God. (Genesis 3:8)

2- Saul, who had been called to lead God's people after the people demanded a King, was approximately 6 and a half feet to 7 feet tall (head and shoulders above all men) but on the day of his consecration by Samuel, was hiding himself possibly among the luggage and baggage of the people who had traveled with and on behalf of Samuel to find and anoint their new king. (1 Sam. 10:22) 

In both cases, whether because of sin, or out of a sense of some form of warped humility or frivolity, the people, whom were to have an allegiance with God, were in the wrong place, doing the wrong things, hiding themselves, as it were, from the presence of God. 

Final

Although I encourage this call and the call of Bishop Blake, and many other pastors who will follow, but I certainly agree with God...THE CHURCH, and her leaders have been absent and missing in action far too long. THEY have been hiding from covid, hiding among the world and its favors and associations and even her sins and whoredoms.

What has been called for as a "day" of fasting, should be a month, should be a quarter to a half year to a full year. For restoration, we need more than an assembly of prayer, but we need an assembly of REPENTANCE and be recommitted to God, HIS work, HIS way, and HIS will.  

I part with an old song:

There is a STORM out, on the ocean, and it is moving this way...IF your soul 's not anchored in JESUS, you will surely drift away!

Blessed!

Molech Renewal Pt. 2: The Survival Of Child Murder Through Moab & Ammon

In my previous article, I outlined the political and social pressure that seems to have been renewed and accelerated across the world in the promotion of abortion. This is quite an interesting subject as it pertains to human value and utilitarianism.  

However, there is a theological gem within the mix here that I thought was astounding and something that I have not heard many expositors bring out to any degree as a matter or point of preaching.  So ministers and preachers who "steal" and or "borrow" this information, (just kidding, I know I am not unique here) I would appreciate a reference and believe me, if I hear you, I’ll know where it came from, and also I would encourage you to join me in study on this topic as I believe the Body of Christ will be enhanced greatly by such knowledge.

Ashera (aka: Chemosh) The "Queen Of Heaven" & Molech

When we read the Old Testament and narratives of God calling Israel to sanctity and union with himself, we quickly note that Israel nearly did everything EXCEPT what God commanded her to do. While I do not believe that polytheism was predominant among the “common folk” of Israel, I do believe that idolatry existed, was wide spread and was, many times, endorsed by the State, and was certainly the primary sin by which Israel experienced its diaspora.

My contention is that the people, led by their leaders (aka Kings) were consistently unfaithful and consistently hard hearted and "stiff-necked" towards HIS commands and instructions, and although the very first commandment of God was to "Have no other gods" either before his presence, nor observed in worship (Ex.20:3) Israel soon, within months of their liberation from Egypt,  became like, and in some cases, worse than other nations around them in adopting idols (Ex. 32:7) and other gods.

There were 2 deities however that scholars agree that many in Israel delivered themselves to worship from time to time. Anath or Astarte, or Ashera aka: Chemosh, who also became Ishtar, Aphrodite, Venus was known as "The Queen Of Heaven". She was also a Canaanite goddess of fertility. Her worship was revamped under various names in various ages and in various parts of the continent. In Israel she was represented by a golden pole, known as the wife of Baal among the Canaanites and touted by many in Israel as the wife of Yahweh himself in the name of Ashera.  Among the Moabites, who’s traditions would seem to persist, she was known as Chemosh. This “goddess worship” appeared to have plagued Israel severely bringing the nation into God’s hot disfavor. 

Even though I primarily deal with Israel’s idolatrous acts during the divided Kingdom, please note, that even prior to the divided Kingdom, Israel had a problem with this deity and her cohort Baal as well as the pantheon of gods from Canaan from time to time. Another of my contentions is that this Ashera was not only a product of Canaan, but primarily a product Moab and Ammon, and that the primary influence of idolatry upon Israel was not Canaanite, but of the Moabite and Ammonite culture and idolatrous religious practices.

The fact is that Israel was warned not to take up Ashera worship specifically:

Deut. 16:21 ~ “You shall not plant any tree as an Asherah beside the altar of the LORD your God that you shall make. (ESV)

However, it is clear that Israel severely disobeyed God and worshipped Ashera as a cohort to Yahweh and were judged for the very act and more. In fact, even during the course of their judgement her worshipers, particularly women, in Jeremiah’s day DEFENDED Ashera worship and pouring out libations to her, claiming that while they worshipped her, they were better off: 

 v. 17 ~ “for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.”

So this worship system, over generations, had its defenders even against the word of God which was clear on the subject. People did not care, they saw this system of idolatry which included libations to false gods and even child murder as an acceptable part of society and life.

Fear Of Societal Backlash

Many are surprised to understand that “cancel culture” is not a modern day invention. The ultimate way to get one “cancelled” and lose one’s life, was to speak against and campaign against the popular idols of the day, even in Israel. Before there was a Kingdom, though Gideon was a “mighty man of valor”, his father however, was a worshiper of Baal and Asherim (plural form of Ashera possibly indicating multiple types of cohort or female deities), and his community seemed to be so steeped in this type of idolatry that Gideon was afraid to obey the voice of God openly and tear down the alters made to the false gods during the daytime when he could be publicly seen. The bible says that Gideon snuck and tore down the alters and destroyed them at night according to the word of the Lord. (Judges 6:25-27). Clearly societal “cancel culture” was the reason that even Gideon, commissioned by God, would do such a thing where he could not be openly seen.

The Valley Of ben Hinnom & Tophet

The word “Hinnom” is of unknown origin. It is believed, that Hinnom, refers to a person and possibly the evil acts and or actions of a person or a group of people. For example, this could be similar to the phrase “son of belial” (Deut. 13:3, Judges 19:22, 1 Sam. 1:16) where it is clear that belial refers to “the devil” or “evil one” or those who are “worthless” and or “debase”. Without speculation we know that the place called “the valley of Hinnom” refers to death and evil, and all that is negative. This phrase is synonymous to the “Valley of Death” or “the place of burning”. In context it appears to be a derivative of actions performed there in the name of false gods and deities, and in particular Molech worship where, as stated, children are to “pass through the fire” or be sacrificed to false gods and deities. 

Tophet which literally also means “the place of burning” is believed to be the extreme southeast part of the “Valley of Hinnom”, is not mentioned as a literal place in the New Testament but appears to be synonymous with Gehenna or HELL or death in wordplay. This place was said to be a place where garbage and that which was unwanted was taken to burn and be consumed by fire. Interestingly, Gehenna is a transliteration of the Aramaic form of the Hebrew word Hinnom. The “fire” associated with Gehenna, never ceases (Mark 9:43-44) and the fire consumes ones “body and soul” in judgement. (Matthew 10:28)

The concept of “passing through the fire” was known from Old Testament to New Testament and was not an appealing circumstance, but was known as a literal reality.

Details Of Molech "The Child Killer"

Although the bible leads us to believe that that Molech was an Ammonite pseudo-spiritual deity, language however displays that Molech (mlkm in Hebrew text translated as "their king") could have also been a kingly leader's title or epithet for someone who was fully human, but given divine attribution. (see 2 Sam. 12:26-31) This was not uncommon among ANE leaders as exampled by Egypt, who held their Pharaohs to be “divine” men with divine powers, invoking fear among people, even in their deaths.

Although it is not clear whether the Molech deity originated or was solely created by the Ammonites, it is clear that Molech, was at least a main or primary god among the Ammonites and was worshipped to whatever degree. This worship, under various names, even the name of Baal, predated 900BCE and ran through 2nd Century ANE as referenced by Justin Martyr in his treatise to Trypho. So it would seem that the Ammonite people continued to survive and thrive for generations. So although the origin of this deity is effectually unknown history the customs regarding it is much  more widespread and longer lasting than originally thought. 

One may ask why and how did this deity and the other female deity associated with Molech, thrive? Well remember The Moabites, who seem to have popularized “Asherah” worship and the Ammonites, who seemed to have popularized Molechian and Baalistic worship, were cousins of Israel by blood and descendants of Lot by incestuous and dastardly plot of Lot’s daughters to continue “his seed” after they had been delivered from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. (Gen. 19:30-38) It seems that the daughters of Lot ignorantly “thought” that ALL men had been destroyed when Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed and sought a plot to preserve mankind. Nevertheless, the older daughter bore Moab who would found the Moabite people and the younger daughter bare Ben Ammi, who would go on to found the Ammonite people.

Molech  & Chemosh Survived

Although neither the Moabites, nor the Ammonites were friendly or supportive of Israel nor her plight (Jg. 10:9, 2nd Chronicles 20, and remember Balaam who was hired to curse God’s people but could not [Numbers 22-24]) God decreed that Israel was NOT to destroy them:

God’s Command Concerning Moab:

Deut 2:9 ~ And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land for a possession; because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for a possession

God’s Command Concerning Ammon:

Deut. 2: 19 ~ And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession.

From the evidence of scripture, God’s people WERE NOT to destroy and or take for a possession of any of the land of either Moab nor Ammon. Interestingly, God did not say to vanquish their worship systems, he merely said to NOT practice their worship not be intermingled in marriage with them. This is contrasted to the 6 Nations (and the 7th being Amalek) of Canaan that God commanded Israel to “utterly destroy” which would include destroying and vanquishing their gods and idols.

Deut. 20:17 ~ But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee:

Known as Milik, Muluk, Milcom, Milkom, Adad, Adadmelek, Adrammelech, Baal-Hadad, Shamash, and even Baal, with a root word of "sacrifice" and "their king", the deity was worshipped by either one of 2 ways as argued by modern scholars:

1-     By delivering the 1st born child to the priest of the cult for service to ultimately intermarry with other individuals or what would be considered pagans (this is a form of what we would call child trafficking today as found in the Book of Jubilees 30:7ff) or

2 - By literally and physically killing a child and or young person, again a required first born to be placed in literal fire, therefore sacrificing the child to this alleged god (or king leader) for whatever purpose. 

We believe that the scripture is clear. Child murder was demanded by Molech and possibly even Ashera or Chemosh as well, and that the murder of children was a way to worship these idols. 

In part 3 of this study, I will sum up the discussion as well as expand on the implications made in these articles as it pertains to the world's lust to murder children under the certain confusion of concepts of freedom and women's health, which abortion has nothing in the least bit to do with. 

Blessed!
