I can assure you that there are a good many people who have decided they don’t like me over the years. I have tried as much as possible, just as the scriptures say, to live at peace with all men. There is no man out there who I have stolen from, I haven’t mistreated anyone, I am an excellent heating and air contractor in So. Cal, all of my customers recommend me. I have a large family, seven children, seven grandchildren and a wife of 32 years, all of these are witnesses to anyone willing to look at the grace, wisdom and blessings of the Lord to me and in my life. Since the day I moved into this area, until now, 46 years have come and gone, I have been AOG, United Pentecostal, Baptist, Calvary Chapel, Vineyard, Foursquare Church, Presbyterian, all of these churches have either kicked me out, some physically, or would have no interest today for me to darkened their door and to be who I am in Christ, as Christ is my only head.
I have now spent about 20 years teaching almost no one else but myself and my family, and seeking the face of the Lord. I have sought the wisdom and knowledge that begins with the fear of God. I took to myself the promises, “You must believe that he is, and he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him” Heb. 11:6. I have spent a good deal of time working out my own salvation in this life, with fear and trembling before the Lord, even reading the scriptures in fear and trembling. As I have walked with the Lord and have taken up the promises of God in the scriptures, things like, “My God shall supply all of your needs according to his riches in Christ Jesus” Phil. 4:19, I have realized that God is asking us to believe him for miracles that are not humanly possible. Today I have none of the financial safe guards that so many people strife so hard to obtain, I do one job at a time, trusting in the Lord who always provides everything that I need in this life.
What I intend to accomplish today in this article, is prove to you beyond shadow of doubt, to shove you into a corner and give you no way to escape, to prove to you that EVERYTHING, ALL of the Promises belong to you and me in Christ Jesus! EVERYTHING that Jesus did when he walked the face of the earth, ALL of his works, ALL of them you can do today in Christ Jesus!
(Joh 14:12) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
I am about to prove to you how you have been lied to by the religious leaders of our time, you have been held captive in a place of confusion of faces, Babylon, and I am going to prove to you that EVERYTHING belongs to you and me in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior! At the end of this article you will have two choices, belief or unbelief, victory, the Kingdom of God and his righteousness or defeat, and the Kingdom of Darkness, the Devil and his Kingdom.
Recently, on Facebook and in some of these articles I have made some very bold statements of Faith that has caused a great deal of surprise, some to the glory of God and others have been left in disbelief, not believing this to be a proper thing for any man to say. Today I am going to put you into a corner, we are going to find out once and for all whether you believe the scriptures or not. You have been told that none of these things, none of these promises are true to us in Christ, you dismissed them, when you read the very scriptures which promise them, you moved on, you were sure they could not mean that. You have been told that Jesus Christ was God manifested in the flesh, true, he was the greatest man who ever lived, true, and no one can do the works he did, much less greater works, BIG FAT LIE! You have been told that Paul the Apostle was a great man, true, you have been told that the Apostle Paul was the Apostle to the gentiles, true, you have been told that Paul perhaps the greatest of the Apostles said “If any man teach or preach any gospel other than the gospel that I preach, if even an angel from heaven preach or teach any other gospel other than what I teach, LET HIM BE ACCURSED!”, all true. You have also been taught that NO MAN will EVER be greater than Paul the Apostle and do such works as he did, this is not only a BIG FAT LIE, Brothers and Sisters, it’s IDOLATRY!
We are told in the scriptures (Gal 2:20) I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Have you not carefully considered the meaning of these things? Here is how it works. We live by Faith, thru Grace, it is the gift of God. When we seek the Lord daily and meditate of the things of God, diligently seeking him with fear and trembling, we are built up in this faith, because of the grace of God that is extended to us by his favor, by his gift to us. When we meet together, it is for the very purposes of building one another up in the most Holy Faith (Jude 1:20), having fellowship with one another and thereby having fellowship with Christ. (1 John 1:7) As we are built up in this faith we become bolder to proclaim it, to testify of it, from glory to glory he makes us more holy. (2Cor. 3:18)
As you grow in the things of God you began to make statements of faith, I don’t know anyone who would be angry with me for making the following statement, “My God shall supply all of my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”, I don’t know any Christians who would disagree with that, certainly there are many Christians who claim to believe this, but really don’t when put to the test. Any faith a Christian claims as his own, that would be a promise of scripture which by the grace of God has been given to them personally, that Faith will be tried.
(Jas 1:3-4) Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
What I am doing today, is telling you that you have been lied to, you have been short changed, you have had your hope of salvation defined down, you have been told that the realm of possibilities for you is very low, when in fact the opposite is true. I am here to expose the lies! I know by the creation that you and I are created in the image of God. We know this because God is truth and in him is no lie at all. When you go about your daily lives and run into people from all walks, do you ask them, are you a liar or do you tell the truth? Are you an evil person or are you a good person? Do you want to be like God, or do you want to be like the Devil? You know that almost every person would abhor themselves to answer any other way, of course they believe the truth, they don’t lie!
I am telling you today that the Lord God of heaven has given me wisdom and understanding. It is the everlasting Word of God that is true and everything else is a lie. So you are comfortable with the claim, “My God shall supply all of my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”, well let me ask you this, have you ever gone bankrupt? Have you had problems paying your bills, were you ever homeless? Did your faith endure when you were tried, or have you now given up and lost your faith? As I previously said, every man’s faith is tried, I have always understood the risk one takes in the proclamation of that faith in public, everyone is watching, they will note whether your miracle happens or not, they will note whether your faith stands or not. Why is it that you have faith for God to provide all of your needs, but you don’t have faith when it comes to other promises, is anything to hard for God, how about this promise?
(Mat 21:21-22) Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
The fig tree Jesus speaks of is Israel, he found no fruit on the tree, he told them “I would have gathered you as a mother hen does gather her chicks but you would not, therefore you’re kingdom is left unto you desolate”, he said he would take the kingdom from them and deliver it to a people bearing the fruits of it. (Mat. 21:43) So Jesus not only promises that if you have faith you can do what he did to Israel, but he also said that you could throw mountains into the sea, that’s a world power folks, a mountain is a world power!
The reason that some of you are so troubled and some even unfriended me on Facebook, it’s because you don’t realize that YOU can be built up in the most Holy Faith and do ALL of these works YOURSELF – in Christ! Don’t you think that this is really GOOD NEWS? Do you want to see the Kingdom of God come with great power and might? Then put on the armor and prepare for battle brothers, I am your servant and fellow laborer here to equip you and give to you freely what the Lord has given me, don’t be offended at me, rejoice with me, the Kingdom of God is at hand!
In a world where none can seek for victory and accomplish it, everyone remains defeated, in a world where everyone’s opinion is equal, no one’s opinion needs to be heard, in a world where no one is wise, everyone is a fool, in a world where people claim freedom in Christ, with no freedom in Christ, everyone is held in chains!
So here is my statement of faith, for which I am prepared to be tried, for which I have been tried, contemplating these things, hitting around the edges, never willing to be so bold. I have my sword, my shield, my helmet, my breast plate, my loins grided about with truth and I am ready to battle! (Eph 6:11-17) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
The Word of God is with me, I teach NO LIES 1 John 2:27, EVERY Judgement I make is true 1 Cor. 2:15, there isn’t a man alive that can refute the Word of God inside of me Isa. 50:4, Anyone who rejects my words or rejects me, rejects Christ and will thus be destroyed 1 John 4:6, I stand blameless before the Lord, I live in his righteousness alone, not I that live but Christ who lives in me. There is not another man in the world who possesses these things who I am not in complete unity with, there is no different Gospel or doctrine or teaching between us, One Christ, One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism. If anyone teaches or preaches another gospel other than that which I preach, let him be accursed! What I mean by that last statement, is if any man preaches another Jesus, there may be some who have greater depths of the Lord and therefore teach in a different light, but the same Lord, the same baptism and the same faith.
NOW LET THE TRIALS BEGIN! I STAND BY FAITH ALONE!
The Lord has also given me understanding and wisdom where all of my enemies will be silenced. A man, a liar, many years ago stood against me and called me a cult leader for no reason at all! He twisted my words and lied and then threatened to sue me when I replied. I have lied down on the ground many times to make a way for people less righteous to walk over me, those days are done! Bring it on, show me the lie! If you cannot then let’s build one another up and prepare for battle, because the Kingdom of God is at hand, no more jokes and lightness of spirit and no more lies, it’s on!
