What Colossians 3:8 REALLY Means, and Why I Disagree Strongly with Religious Spirits That Have Blanket Moratoria Without Exceptions On Certain Words

TRIGGER WARNING: Victims of abuse and sensitive or wounded minds may be offended here.

Some people have already decided in their minds what they want this post to say, and so they might be doing the usual exercise of listening in order to construct a strawman based on what they think I am going to say, in order to knock it down.

So, for those who have made up their mind, you may move from this post to the next, or if you want to skip the offensive segment, then skip the following segment and move to the third segment.

Passages That Will Trigger Some

So, for a contextual overlay, let me requote a couple of passages.

Then I said, “woe is me, for I am undone.”

Isaiah 6:5

Possible way of translating this

Then I said “Holy shit! I am going to die!”

Or Ezekiel 23

“The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother. They played the whore in Egypt; they played the whore in their youth; there their breasts were pressed and their virgin bosoms handled. Oholah was the name of the elder and Oholibah the name of her sister. They became mine, and they bore sons and daughters. As for their names, Oholah is Samaria, and Oholibah is Jerusalem.
“Oholah played the whore while she was mine, and she lusted after her lovers the Assyrians, warriors clothed in purple, governors and commanders, all of them desirable young men, horsemen riding on horses. She bestowed her whoring upon them, the choicest men of Assyria all of them, and she defiled herself with all the idols of everyone after whom she lusted. She did not give up her whoring that she had begun in Egypt; for in her youth men had lain with her and handled her virgin bosom and poured out their whoring lust upon her. Therefore I delivered her into the hands of her lovers, into the hands of the Assyrians, after whom she lusted. These uncovered her nakedness; they seized her sons and her daughters; and as for her, they killed her with the sword; and she became a byword among women, when judgment had been executed on her.
“Her sister Oholibah saw this, and she became more corrupt than her sister in her lust and in her whoring, which was worse than that of her sister. She lusted after the Assyrians, governors and commanders, warriors clothed in full armor, horsemen riding on horses, all of them desirable young men. And I saw that she was defiled; they both took the same way. But she carried her whoring further. She saw men portrayed on the wall, the images of the Chaldeans portrayed in vermilion, wearing belts on their waists, with flowing turbans on their heads, all of them having the appearance of officers, a likeness of Babylonians whose native land was Chaldea. When she saw them, she lusted after them and sent messengers to them in Chaldea. And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoring lust. And after she was defiled by them, she turned from them in disgust. When she carried on her whoring so openly and flaunted her nakedness, I turned in disgust from her, as I had turned in disgust from her sister. Yet she increased her whoring, remembering the days of her youth, when she played the whore in the land of Egypt and lusted after her lovers there, whose members were like those of donkeys, and whose issue was like that of horses.”

Ezekiel 23:1-20 ESV

Verse 20, to say nothing about the profane way the rest of chapter 23 was written

Who were hung like horses and who ejaculated the same way…

And Paul, this time without the first transation

As for those who are agitating you, I wish they would cut their penises off

Galatians 5;12

And in another place

“For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as shit, in order that I may gain Christ”

Philippians 3:8 ESV

And let’s not forget that Baal was in the words of Elijah might have been taking a shit (1 Kings 18 can actually read like that), among other places, and Redemptive Gift Prophets like Elijah, and Exhorters were not know for their flowery, G-rated, sarcasm-free speech).

What the Song of Solomon Is Really Saying And How It May Set the Tone For Some Marriages

To say nothing about how raw the Song of Solomon actually reads, for all you allegorical types. Dew and dripping with myrrh and liquids in the Song are references to sexual fluids. And while the types and analogies of Scripture are at play in Song of Solomon, due to Ephesians 5, that does not supecede that the Song is a picture of the heights of intimacy between husband and wife, and it is really graphic. The “mountain of myrrh” is something the woman is saying about the man, and I will leave it at that.

The Real Point of Colossians 3:8

Paul was not saying get rid of the four-letter words from your mouth.

Paul was saying get rid of speech that abuses others.

That will be different for different people.

Our job, when we connect with others, is not to inauthentically put on a front to them, but rather is to be authentic. If that means some do not speak with four-letter words, then that is fine, and no I will absolutely not entertain a debate about whether or not that can be done.

The fact is that people need to learn how to be real and honest and sincere, because this generation can point out a fake believer 35 miles away. I do not care if you can clean up your language one whit, if you are still coming home drunk off your ass, and lying about everything else, and gaslighting everyone that you live with.

The problem is not our mouths, but the problem is our mouths, and it is not “keep away from this list of words that are contraband”.

We have enough issues with Christians trying to protect their reputations by avoiding certain words while also running in the direction of deception, abuse, gaslighting, and covering up rape, mistreatment, offense, and every other foul tarpit.

Our capacity to execute in the kingdom will be proven by the fruit of what we preserve.

If my sons or daughter tell the truth and they happen to voice their frustration by occasionally using a word, not to abuse but because they are frustrated or angry or dealing with injustice, but they never stops protecting the widow and the orphan and the fatherless boy who does not have a man in his life to show him what it means to be a kingdom man, then I sure better have the balls to coach them to a better place in all things and bless them for doing the right thing.

Now, where this turns troublesome is where the language turns abusive, and me and 100% of my friends and colleagues know when the language has turned the corner from frustration to abuse.

But voicing frustration and abusing people are two different things.

Paul and the balance of Scripture were vastly more concerned with the abuse factor than they were about whether one had successfully managed to avoid every bad word on the checklist.

Gang, it is time we do the same.

If we avoid the cuss words but run headlong into telling lies, weaving webs of deceit projecting an inauthentic image, and gaslighting others, we have royally screwed up.

So, as you are working with your kids, make sure you keep the holy checklist to a minimum and coach them to a place of being a whole man or a whole woman.

We need more of those whole people running around.

And we need more authenticity.

And we need fewer legitimacy crutches of “I am legitimate because I avoided all the bad words.”

You can walk around with a hundred gold-plated crutches, but that does not make you any less of a cripple.

Just some raw and open thoughts as I work at making my speech more fathering and less abusive myself.

And for Christ’s sake, let’s lay off the sanitizing of Scripture because we are embarrased in its portrayal of all things messy.

When the Holy Spirit touches human flesh, things are bound to get messy.

Praying for you, gang.

Spiritual Labels Attached to Names: The Lion of the Tribe of Judas

It may jar some to read the passage from Revelation 5:5 this way, but I would encourage y’all to read it thus.

The Lion of the Tribe of Judas, has the authority to open the scroll and break the seals.

The Greek form of Judah is Judas.

I dare same some would be offended at this idea, because we have grown so used (the freaking status quo that NEVER gets challenged from generation to generation) to attaching labels to names, and one label we attach to Judas is “traitor”. His name may have, in the eyes of many, come to mean “traitor”, but it and its root do not mean “traitor”. Rather, its root means “praise”.

And the reality for Judas Iscariot is that yes, he was a traitor to Jesus.

But I would hazard to say that G-d knew the NT was going to be written in Greek originally, and G-d was there first and the name Judas, which as the Greek form of Judah, means “praise”, must be recovered by the church because the name belongs to the L-rd himself, and it is the Greek name for his tribe, and for all who are labeled Jews.

The devil owns nothing and is a thief and a faithless and accursed labeller of many things, and those labels are designed to incur shame on the object in question.

And I am done with ceding this name to the kingdom of darkness when he is nothing more than a petty thief.

The label needs to be removed and dealt with, because all names from Adam and Cain to Jesus and Judas and Zerubbabel and Esther, a Babylonian name, And all of those names belong to the L-rd.

The same goes for any list we secretly have of things, days, holidays, events, occasions, names, states, cities, countries, peoples, and tribes that belong to Satan.

He is an owner of nothing (Psalm 24:1). The earth is the L-rd’s and the fullness thereof. The Earth and all who dwell therein.

The Lion and His Tribe are synonymous with the Judas action of praising the L-rd, and praise constipates the mind of the enemy and throws the enemies of the L-rd, who is worthy of praise in the Greek tongues as much as the Hewbrew tongues, into abject confusion and disarray.

Be at peace, oh tribe of Judas, and reject that label foisted on you by the religious spirit.

From the Desk of Amy Dudley: An Open Letter to the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office (Louisiana)

An open letter to the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s office.

I have a great deal of respect for the officers that put their lives on the line everyday. It’s a job I couldn’t do. I will defend you for what you do. Thank you.

As a citizen of this parish I must voice a personal concern. Earlier today my husband and I came to the courthouse to be finger printed for some legal paperwork we needed to complete. I was confronted by the officers at the door for not wearing a mask. I know that they are doing their job.

I chose to put one on because we had to have the finger prints done… I was not given any “reasonable accommodation”, according to ADA guidelines, that would allow me the right to have my fingerprints done with out wearing one.

As a person who has experienced horrific rape, sodomy and torture, wearing a mask brings on terrifying panic attacks.

One of the kind ladies doing the finger printing worked quickly so that I could get out as soon as possible while another woman stood behind me bullying me to put the mask up over my nose…. making the whole situation even worse.

I accommodated the mandate the best I could while trying not have a complete melt down right there. There are several witnesses who saw me falling a part as I ran out of the building.

The panic attack lasted for over an hour before I could finally get a grip.

While I understand these people are doing their jobs, I fail to understand the lack of respect for those who truly are in danger when a mandate like this is enforced without compassion or understanding for circumstances that don’t fit the boxes of those making the demands.Does the ADA apply for EVERY disabled citizen or just some?

I feel humiliated. I was unable to maintain my dignity in a public place.

I left sobbing uncontrollably for all to see.

When will there be justice for people like me? Is compliance more important than human dignity?

Mesmerizing Spirit Series, Choosing the False Hope While Violating Principles

Current Events And Financial Landing Pads

I am so done with the fakey prophetic words that promise us freedom by bastardizing cause-and-effect relationships and calling it a roadmap to a Jubilee level of freedom. We have a broke government planning to assume an incredible amount of debt but not eliminate it.

Second, when has our government done a good job of managing and eliminating debt?

And as it pertains to Scripture and the Year of Jubilee, that event and the instructions about handling that even were given to a financially responsible Giver nation, led by an Exhorter who walked in high numbers in the area of Reality, and which nation had sufficient financial solvency (Exodus 3:21-22, 12:36, 32:1-4) to completely eliminate those debts is a tremendous misinterpretation of Scripture.

Not a Prophet nation that led with insolvency through bleeding-heart fiscal irresponsibility to the tune of 22,000,000,000.00 in the hole.

Trapped By Blind Arameans

You cannot violate your way into freedom….

The Mesmerizing Spirit has found a massive landing pad in the last few decades and it is not letting go. It has figured out that when we see someone promise to bail us out even though we are financially insolvent, we will support that guy or gal, and consequently, we will be anesthetized from being able to see clearly to see where the enemy seeks to rob and degrade us further.

If someone promises you a solution and you are already at the point of despair unto death, if you are not anchored in Him (not His nature, not His attributes, not in Scripture), you might readily accept that solution, even if it is the good, which is the eternal enemy of the best.

This is another dynamic of how this pickpocketing clown works with the Canaanite Curse to create an oppressive workload as a result of selling birthrights for bowls of lentils.

Especially when empowered by the work of a group of Exhorters who are severely compromised (Joe Biden, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton), walking in non-reality, and feeding us a fantasy.

Four items, all from Republicans and Democrats, have demonstrated this nonsense, but clearly we have an issue with seeing clearly because we only call out the opposing party.

The auto manufacturer bailouts.

The subprime lending debacle.

The COVID bailouts and PPP loans.

And now the potential student loan bailouts.

This is all fruit of the Mesmerizing Spirit.

It’s desire is to distract you with false hope

Don’t buy the lie that you can violate your way into freedom. With a violation of principles comes a reaping of consequences.

From A Place of Earned Authority

As someone who paid off two degrees while his heart was getting ripped out through adultery, divorce, spiritual abuse, and emotional abuse…

As someone who lived as a widower…

I spent 3 years in abject solitude and 7 years grinding out a marriage that was doomed from the start to a verbally abusive Jezebel spirit who held my sons out as bait, while grinding out menial labor jobs and several of my spirit portions were bound up with fetters and not permitted to speak.

I have the earned authority to say this.

Do not settle for less than full-on, gritty reality. Stop settling. That is what the Pharisees did. They settled. They settled for what they could control and what fit into their boxes. That is why, in the end, they got Matthew 23.

Telluride (Prophet) and Gertrude (Exhorter)

What They Are Doing To You

These clowns in government are leading you along.

They do not know a thing about how republican government and fiscal responbility work.

Someone saying “I am from the government and I am here to help you,” should scare the hell out of you.

Someone claiming to be able to set you free financially when they have no plan for the debt except to assume it…

….when they do not have the means to eliminate it is not jubilee. It is further bondage on a national level.

A broke government cannot bring a financially enslaved people into the freedom that G-d meant us to walk out in a jubilee context.

The freedom of Jubilee comes because the L-rd teaches nations, which are solvent, cause-and-effect relationships and then sets them on a path that is in accordance with His heart.

Freedom does not come apart from us being willing to walk out the principles of Scripture. We have faith, and that faith causes us to execute. And indeed, we execute because we know the principles of Scripture, even the principles found in the Law.

Adonai did this with Israel, and Jesus the Exhorter is doing this now with us.

Violating financial principles will lead you to financial destruction.

65 thousand paid off in 12 years of clawing when my heart was getting flushed out.

And I can say, as a gooshy Mercy, that deliverance and liberty do not come simply because we cried out to G-d only.

Rather, deliverance comes because He partners with sons in the kingdom who are willing to put the principles to work on complex problems.

Deliverance comes because we act to humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways, and to do the things He told us to do.

The Eighth Horn of the Dragon

Are you going to settle for the sort-of-freedom that comes with wealth transfer by a government that is known for its exceptional stupidity in all things fiscal?

Or are you going to run hard and fast with the principles and kick the Eighth Horn of the Dragon, Mammon, squarely in the teeth?

If you are not going to settle.


from a man who has no plan for fiscal responsibility outside of increasing spending and increasing taxes…

on a nation that is insolvent and on the verge of collapse…

in large part due to our trust in an artificial economy that is playing with derivatives and other esoteric economic foolishness.

Mesmerizing Spirit Series: Picking a Side

When Joshua was by Jericho, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing before him with his drawn sword in his hand. And Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us, or for our adversaries?” And he said, “No; but I am the commander of the army of the L-RD. Now I have come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped and said to him, “What does my lord say to his servant?” And the commander of the L-RD’S army said to Joshua, “Take off your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so.

Joshua 5:13–15 ESV

“We might do some things together. I don’t know about sides. I go my own way; but your way may go along with mine for a while.”

Fangorn, The Two Towers, “Treebeard”

We are told to pick a side repeatedly, and when neither side actually walks with righteousness, and there are very clearly several dynamics of compromise on either side, and, instead of having the faith to ask the Father if He wants to rip up the whole superstructure, we shrink our faith and ask Him which side He wants us to pick, based on slogans, and a whole lot of deception and skulking half-truth.

I want you, gang, to consider whether or not you are even on the right path asking the right question.

It’s not about sides.

It’s about that which is deeper.

When you are handed a group of wicked rulers and you pick one, and call them good, and make excuses for that ruler, then you open the door for all sorts of other junk.

But when you question the whole system, and ask the L-rd if He has a problem with the whole system, or even something deeper than where you are, then I would urge you to ask the L-rd what He wants you to do with that truth.

He may ask you to join with others and ask Him to begin the process of asking Him to quash that whole structure, or He may say, “the structure is fine, but there is a focal point over here.”

Find that focal point He has for you, and direct your prayer there.

Staring At the Right Place For the Wrong Reasons

You can be drawn to and prophesy over the right focal point with the wrong words.

Gang, I am encouraging you all to go deeper and ask much deeper questions than “which of these two men do You have for this job?”.

And for some, that might be the right question, and if the L-rd says “go with this or that person, regardless of how they present to others”, then do that.

But I would also challenge you to ask a bunch of questions and even some that you may not be hearing others ask.

Be willing to ask things like, “L-rd, are the roots of the system I am looking at an praying over off even a little bit?”

“Are our cornerstones fully square?”

Are the stones in the foundation off, or are they on-point and made with the right material.

“Are we asking based on presuppositions, and, as a result, blind to something else You are wanting to show us?”

“Father, is there something I am missing that You wish to show me? Is there something that, because of my perspective or hardwiring, or even my gifting, I am missing.” Sometimes, because of the way we are uniquely hardwired, there are things difficult for us to see. Whether it is justice, or empathy, or deeper understanding, or revelation, or management of resource, or systems, or flow, or felt needs….

The truth is….we know in part and we prophesy in part.

This sort of mindset requires that we leave aside questions that are readily evident that everyone is asking and seeing to answer, and dig for the questions that NO ONE is asking.

Gang, don’t be hasty.

Ask the L-rd to shine His light, and refuse to coach Him on where to shine it.

And be at peace with all that you are doing.

Mesmerizing Spirit Series: Not Enough Perspective To Adequately Understand Or Contend For Justice

A Much Broader Perspective Than the Elections

That potential assertion that I do not care about justice is far from the truth.

However, what we think is justice and what He thinks is justice are often two different things. How we excoriated Clinton’s character and defended Trump’s behavior is an example of the way in which we changed as a nation for the worse. Going from saying the president’s personal character does matter to saying it did not matter, Trump supporters exchanged places with Clinton supporters.

Did you know that a major prophet said Bill Clinton has a mantle of humility, for example?

Back to what we exchanged about earlier, I am aware G-d is concerned about justice. But justice does not mean having a partial perspective about the elections and treating is as the whole perspective. I don’t think the majority of these prophets the last four years have done us any favors, given there is no recourse for accountability when they get it wrong (Charlie Shamp in 2018 for example with the red wave), and given they like to spout off things like “touch not my anointed one and do my prophets no harm.”

Much of the modern-day prophets have a notoriously questionable track record and they frequently do not get the justice of G-d. I think a lot of what we think is justice is short of G-d’s larger perspective and I think G-d is using 2020 to correct the “prophetic movement” and to bring them back into a place where they are actually hearing Him more fully and recognizing their perspective is only part of the whole perspective.

Beyond Small-Minded and Soulish Justice

The larger issue is delivering us as a nation from the Mesmerizing Spirit. Once we have been delivered from that and once we have repented of that, we will have a much larger perspective to see all of His justice. But given judgment starts in the house of G-d, I am looking for Him to first make His decisions pertaining to us, and when we ask G-d for justice, we need to recognize that His sequence is frequently not our sequence. He could be uncovering more than just the small things we think about. We have a lot of wannabe prophets that are not hearing Father’s deeper plan for the office of prophet and we have a lot of surface-level prophecies.

We Went Shallow In Dealing With Trump’s Strongholds

“When we deliberately refuse to see what CAN be seen, we give the enemy the right to blind us from something we really need to see. “

Arthur Burk

Refusing to see what you need to see about Trump is what leads to this nonsense in the first place, church.

Personally, I think we didn’t reach into how G-d wanted us to respond in Trump by transforming him the way the L-rd wanted to. And instead we defended him the way the Democrats defended Bill Clinton with the same arguments.

And out of that, the Mesmerizing Spirit got PHENOMENAL mileage.

Pivoting To What Might Be Happening Now That We Were Shallow

I would suggest that, largely, the L-rd is moving into a deeper-than-we-understand purifying of the office of Prophet and, from there, we will see the rest of the picture.

First and foremost, prophets chronically look at Republicans and Democrats and ignore all other players in the US. Supposed R’s and D’s existed in four years and His choice in 2024 was neither Republican nor Democrat. Given the current blindness, would we have the spiritual gonads to see that?

We act like the two-party system is all that is being dealt with in the courts of heaven. This is a partial perspective and that sort of willful blindness is deadly. G-d is wanting to SHATTER that bias of small perspective and bring us into the realm of seeing what no-eye-has-seen.

And talking about SCOTUS justices, did you know Clarence Thomas is pro-life, but he also served as a lawyer for Monsanto? And every time a Monsanto case has come before SCOTUS, he has not refused himself, but rather every time has voted in favor of Monsanto.

That’s neither pro life nor just. That is pro life with strings attached.

The abortion issue is not the only arena of justice that we have to get right.

Only Getting Our Arms Around A Part of the Arena

And for us to say and place prophecies around two candidates who have both proven to be big-government, pro-war (Afghanistan), anti-limited spending slobs, and refusing to look at the whole perspective, when G-d demands we look at the big picture, is outright further empowering a spirit that doesn’t care which bozo is in office, provided we remain with blind spots, and provided he can bankrupt us from a thousand angles and we continue to spend more than we take in.

So, when we cry out for justice, it is wisest for us to not coach G-d on what justice looks like, because we do not know His sequence. So, shrinking the perspective and saying, “YAY Trump because no Biden!”, and ignoring the rest of the robustness of what could have happened in this election is short-sighted.

And thinking abortion is a matter of solely a SCOTUS decision is also blindness.

Fullness of Justice Goes Beyond a President, a SCOTUS Decision, or Two Parties In An Election

Justice there looks like William Wilberforce, who, with a cadre of others, and Wedgewood China figurines (part of the contemporary art of the culture) engaged he culture in millions of conversations about the slave trade, skillfully. We in the pro life movement have sucked at skillful and shrewd discourse, but we sure have innocent as a dove down cold.

Part of the Punch Line

Bottom line: we have an incredibly shallow view of justice combined with an unwillingness to cultivate the shrewdness of a serpent, in accordance with Jesus command in Mathew 10:16. So, something has to change for us to change that massive problem. This is beyond Trump and SCOTUS which is notoriously small thinking.

Just my take.

The Prayer

L-rd, we do not know and we refuse to coach You where to shine your light and what to expose. We repent for coaching You on where to shine Your light.

And Father, we ask You to shine Your light where You want to shine it and keep it there until we see what You want us to see and we deal with it.

We repent of willful blindness and partial perspective. Help us to see what You are showing us IN FULLNESS.

In the name of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach

Spiritual Extrusion, Honor, And Truth

I find it ironic that the below post comes with a language warning for those who might be triggered by such things. Take care as you read.

Righteousness and justice are the foundations of Your throne;

From Psalm 89:14, ESV

Benchmarks For The Kingdom, The Roots of the L-rd’s Habitat

Gang, I have read this passage from Psalm 89 before. And it was not until I heard Arthur Burk teach on the Psalms that some things clicked for me in the arena of reading Scripture. I will explain.

“It’s Just Symbolic…”. Well, Okay. Symbolic of What?

I have frequently heard that, because the Psalms are poetry, they are to be read with a mindset of “it’s just a figure of speech.”

“It does not really mean what it says.”

This remains a frequent response to those insatiably curious learners. As children, we are largely designed by Father with a curious bent to hunger and thirst. We yearn to seek and understand. We were made to pose the question, “What does this phrase mean?” To go beyond the horizon, in the words of Megan Caldecourt. And, sadly, it becomes a too-often safe mechanism to deflect inquisitive minds who are naturally hardwired to become factories that think deeply about problems in order to manufacture and engineer solutions to those complex problems.

As a result of this dismissive mindset, we have a segment of the tribe of Scholars and Teachers that is largely peopled by intellectual cowards. The very class of tribesmen that G-d designed to instruct us and strengthen us by pouring concrete and iron rebar into already-unstable youngsters who are made to soak up tons of raw data and concepts…..

These destabilize that plumb-line, keel, and constantly redirect the engine that naturally fosters learning. They redirect our engine because they think the drive in us is immaturity or not in alignment with their status quo. They turn the helm of our self-guided course in accordance with their futile demands.

In turn, this destabilizes us by their several attempts to beat the creativity out of us, in favor of beating conformity to their agenda into us. Then, these clowns move to their vain task of extruding our spirits and souls through their mold. Some survive this spiritual raping, barely, while others are completely shattered from the assault.

The living and breathing dangerous and fiery text of the Holy Writ becomes a mechanical set of dead hermeneutics.

When all is said and done, we are left with the end product of a bunch of the spiritual proletariat that parrots every G-d-damned religious triteism in brainwashed staccato, reciting along with our equally dead teachers of the law.

And, “it just becomes a symbol or a figure of speech.”

Before you get offended at my usage of “G-d-damned”, read the context. That word refers to things that G-d has not designed, and therefore are not redemptive in nature. Rather, these things are condemned by G-d to hell precisely because they twist, maim, and shatter spirit and soul.

And when the institutional church is done, what remains is a group of people who does not take Scripture at its word. And we wonder why people are not passionate about uniformity to our vision of what Christ is supposed to look like for them.

Our job was never to assault people with this sort of concentration camp mindset. And for those of us who survived and learned how to cast off that decrepit mindset, we were able to point out its execution.

When we have been freed and healed of this lightweight mindset, the Scripture can hit us with its full weight.

Psalm 89:14

The throne of G-d is a real thing that occupies a real place in real time and real space. And its foundations are righteousness and justice. That is, apart from the presence of righteousness and justice in a situation or in a reality, the full weight of the L-rd’s authority will not be brought to bear in a situation.

I like to think of divine Righteousness as the quality about G-d that enables him to bring His reality to bear on a situation, while Justice is the action of G-d whereby He executes with action based on his decision concerning a situation.

Our desire and willingness to submit to reality as G-d sees it brings these foundations into a situation, and with it, His throne, which is His presence, and His capacity, willingness, and acting to execute.

And when He executes, He does not miss a beat, He creates perfect alignment and fulfillment, and everything is set into a sustainable and life-giving synergy.

Gang, if you are in a situation where you need His intervention, I would counsel you to do two things. Focus on the right stewardship of cause-and-effect and walk in the things you know you must walk in. Bring honor and truth into every situation you encounter. Truth as HE knows it. Truth as HE sees it. Truth as HE experiencies.

Honor those people in your life that encourage you to ask the questions that no one is asking. Press for the why of a situation. Do not allow yourself to buckle and bend your knees to submit to the mob that would seek to shut you up as you pursue truth and the righteous understanding.

Bring realignment to unjust situations and call out injustice and unrighteousness.

For example, this election in the U.S. is not about making sure your candidate wins. It is about making sure the elections are conducted with integrity, consistency, and justice. Proper treatment of the principles that govern constitutional republican (given we are not a democracy in the U.S., but a republic) elections. This is not about your personal bias, but it is about engaging in the actions of seeing the L-rd deal with the Mesmerizing Spirit the way HE wants to.

Justice is hard, and REAL social justice (bringing justice to structures in society that perpetuate injustice) is unpopular. Righting wrongs when the majority would have you just shut up because you will upset their precious idolatrous structure will not net you friends, but it will dangerously make you enemies.

Gang, with that, I bless you to yearn for righteousness and justice. I bless your spirit to cry out to Him in praise because He inhabits the place where you praise Him. And when He comes to dwell, because you cry out to Him for a righteous execution of His decision-making process, he will bring Righteousness and Justice, which will precede the implanting of His throne in a situation.

Be at peace, spirits of my tribesmen, and may you make war against the Phillistine enemies that would seek to reject the enthronement of Jesus on the land of a situation.

I bless you with those things in the name of Yeshua ha-Mashiach.

Matthew 24:37-As In the Days of Noah

Jesus’ Discussion Of the Days of Noah

The L-rd never instructed us to forbid people marrying and to stop conducting business in the days of His return. But He was very explicit our reality would mirror the days of Noah, and never decried that reality.

I wonder if we were to take Him at His word, would He garner trust from us. If we just lived as He lived and were salt and light….

Consider the text of verse 37 of Matthew 24:

“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

Matthew 24:37-39 NIV11

Sanctified Mindsets and Behavior Vs. Nettled Mindsets and Behavior

Messiah never indicted the usual behavior of the days of Noah. He did not and does not condemn marriage, families, and the conduct of business. Rather, what he did condemn, and His reason for flooding the earth, was due to the thoughts of man.

He was fine with business as usual moving toward a building of the kingdom. However, He was not okay with mentalities soaked in iniquity.

Father said in Genesis that the wicked thoughts and mesmerized spirit of humanity was the reason for the hydrological catastrophe. I would add that mindset was learned and bred into the culture.

The Illustration of Isaac

Isaac, by contrast, in Genesis, was not meditating on wickedness, much less continually. Rather, the text does not explicitly say what was the content of his meditation.

“Now Isaac had come from Beer Lahai Roi, for he was living in the Negev.He went out to the field one evening to meditate, and as he looked up, he saw camels approaching.”

Genesis 24:62–63 NIV11

So, what was the content of Isaac’s meditation? Given the context of the passage, I’d suggest he was meditating on the next season of his life. Abraham might have taught him how to meditate. The son likely knew of what Abraham’s servant was up to. And perhaps Isaac was wondering and wrestling with when the L-rd was going to bring his wife to him. When was that season going to start? Would Eliezar of Damascus be successful? Or would the House of Nahor be too full of iniquity to yield a suitable bride for the Son of Abraham.

Indeed, The content and the continuity of Isaac’s meditation was good, lovely, noble, lovely, praiseworthy, and of good report. It is a godly thing for those who are walking with the King to yearn for their chosen one. “Delight yourselves in the L-rd and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Righteous mindsets lead to fruit that breeds peace and fulfillment. We will be satisfied with long life.

The Punchline

Turning back to the dynamics with which Jesus was concerned, he did not care to stop our:

  • Relationships,
  • Marriage,
  • Gestation of children, or
  • Business dealings.

However, Jesus, as with the days of Noah, implied we would contend with a world and system that is compromised. Continual meditation on how we can violate principles colors many places in society. Our response to that system, now we are in the Mercy Season, is to walk in a deep and sanctifying intimacy with those who are in need to authentic relationships.

The Potential For Us

Gang, against the iniquity-baptized mindset and culture, I would challenge us to war against the spirit of the age that seeks to mesmerize us with anything that distracts us from our destiny.

While your business might not be a problem, your conduct and mindset might be.

While your desire to marry and have children might be godly, your motive and selection of a mate might cause some problems. You must choose, and that wisely.

In short, please handle your business in such a way that it turns people toward the light rather than away from it.

Blessing of Stillness #24: The Stillness Following the Breath of Life And Affection Showed For Those With Parts Stuck in Places Yet Unknown

Beloved, I would like to invite your spirit forward, as much of it as is willing to come forward, and if you deem it unsafe, I encourage your spirit’s portions to listen from afar or whereever they may be, even if they are shattered into parts….

trapped between dimensions….

or caught in Leviathan’s prisons in the fluid-filled third spaces between the usual structures.

For a frame of reference for the phrase “third space”, burn victims are often called “third spacers” because burnings cause life-giving fluids often move to the interstitial spaces between cells. There may be a principle in that for those parts that suffered traumas so violent they jumped out of their place into a space yet unexplored.

I know being transferred to the third space is not something yet developed, but I want to just acknowledge this for some who may yet be caught there.

Third spacing due to severe burns can cause a drop in blood pressure, edema, and reduced cardiac output.

Precious spirit, parts, little, altars, enforcers, spirit portions, and current inmates, listen to the word of G-d for you for today.

““Then G-d said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

So God created mankind……

From Genesis 1:26-27

Spirit, I intentionally cut verse 27 off in medias res (Latin for “in the middle of things”) because I wanted you to recount the beginning of your creation, when you ceased to be in the arena of G-d’s heart as a thought and entered into the arena or temporality. The moment before your first response to being placed into the tabernacle of human flesh, when there is a moment and a space to ponder.

Father, the L-rd of Heaven and Earth, who purchased the Heavens and Earth, began to set the whole package of you into motion in that moment. And dear spirit, it was beauty and glory in motion on the day when that happened. For me, that was Easter Sunday 1979. I was desired by my Father, and in that moment, you also, all of you parts and portions, were yearned for and desired and tenderly affected upon by your Father, who finds you worth Him giving up His Only Begotten Son, that he might have you. You are as valuable to The Father of Lights, as Jesus Christ the Only Begotten of G-d. G-d from G-d, Light From Light, True G-d From True G-d. Begotten, Not Made, One in Being With the Father.

Spirit, and all the parts that belong to your community, Father values each of y’all. as much as He values the Life that Flows from Him onto the cross.

So, I bless you each to stop and ponder that reality, regardless of your current place of existence, or current prison, or current seperation, or current pain, or current trauma.

For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor third spaces, nor negative heads of Leviathan, nor defilement, nor blood sacrifices, nor curse, nor spell, nor machination of the enemy, nor as-yet-unshattered stronghold, nor bondage, nor binding of the clowns and their friggin circus, nor height, nor depth, not chasm of Death, nor the Abyss of Tartarus, Nor the Descendency of Sheolian Aquifers, where my Servant Portion travels in order to infiltrate and cleanse them, nor third spaces that should not exist in healed reality, Leviathanic perversions of nature, nor universe-and-reality twisting Aether stones, nor the threats of Death and the Abomination of Desolation will every be able to separate you from G-d’s Everlasting Love, embodied in the Good Lion of Judah, who is not safe to the enemies of His Kingdom.

Spirit, be at peace in that still moment, and I bless you to aggressively ponder the King’s affection which may be felt by you.

I bless you with that unsperatable flood of tender love and kind affection of our King, in the name of Yeshua, ha-Mashiach.

One Purpose of 2020

It would seem I have an impression

This year has overturned a lot, whether through injustice, or mistreatment, or improper application of the rule of law, or social norms, or fear, or plague.

And I have a thought or two there, if you will indulge me.

If this plague and series of decisions or judgments is from the L-rd, and if we are dealing with this as something He sent (We know from Scripture the L-rd can send plagues as a form of judgment; Exodus 7-11, Ezekiel 5:17, Ezekiel 14, Revelation 6:7-8), then the overturning is from Him and it is to a purpose.

I see this series of issues for 2020 and I saw and heard a billion words saying 2020 was going to be a restoration of vision.

If that is the case, and we had dead fields that had lain fallow for decades, in the church as well as out, then I surmise the L-rd’s anointing on 2020 was that of a plowshare.

I think the L-rd intentionally has been using this plowshare, if we will receive it as such, as a plow to stir all kinds of things up so He can loosen the dirt and the ground in order to remove the junk and plant the good.

I think He is preparing the ground to place the seed that he wants

“Is not My word as a fire,” saith the L-rd, “and a hammer to break the rocks into pieces?”

I wonder if he is not going to use people like Nancy Pelosi, and AOC, and Donald Trump, and Kamala Harris, and Jo Jorgensen, and Joe Biden, and Barack Obama, and Republicrats to stir us up so that we will seek Him and depend on Him.

Is it possible that 2020 was designed to be a plowshare to level everything and the burn and break up everything so that we were open to the new thing He wants to do.

Can you handle the weight of being plowed in your own heart through the plowshare test of a level of false accusation in order to remove the quick-tempered anger that leads to murder, and that all that is found in you is the righteous anger that leads to correction of injustice and that you would be willing to speak for the correction of systems that breed injustice?

And you can talk about abortion, but that is the least of these problems.

I am talking, for example, about the US Government’s storied history of abusing First Nations through covenant breaking.

I am talking about the institutionalized misogyny practiced against women by religious institutions and the rampant sexism practiced against women like Beth Moore by men claiming the cloth is only allowed to be worn by those with a penis and testes simply because the men’s club of pastor’s in many places believes G-d has male sex organs.

I am talking about the raping of children by Catholic Priests.

I am talking about the church culture that enabled Jimmy Swaggart, and Ted Haggard, and Todd Bentley, and Bob Jones University, and Tullian Tchividjian, Mark Driscoll, and CJ Mahaney to protect, hide, or perpetrate abuse against others.

Our responsibility, in part, is to let the L-rd have His way and to allow Him to plow up everything He wants to plow up, so He can deal with us, and so He can remove the junk He wants to remove.

We cannot call ourselves the spotless Bride if we are going to allow compromise in our midst.

And this includes prophetic words that are improperly given, such as the 13 percent accuracy rate Elijah List tolerates as a solid track record for accuracy in the prophetic.

We are required to come higher and to walk in holiness. Period. Matthew 5:48, Leviticus 19:2.

Plow away, L-rd. We will not stand in the way.

Shine Your light whereever you want to shine it. If that means Democrats and Republicans and Protestants and Catholics are all exposed, then fine.

We will refuse to coach You as to where you want to shine the light.

Remove the junk and the garbage from Your midst.
