    Churches @100%!

    Sisters & Brothers In Jesus,
    After over a year of shut downs and mandated restrictions, finally the Churches of New Mexico have been given the ‘green light’ to open at 100 percent (for now).   James wrote for us not to think it strange, these fiery trials and Jesus warned us of tribulations in this world, but we are not of this world, the gates of hell will not prevail against us, we are not limited by God, in any way, shape or form, for we are commissioned by Him to do even greater things, All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Us.  Jesus commands us to, “GO!” Concerning the 100%, are not All Believers told to Love God with All of their heart, mind, soul, spirit & strength (knowing that in our weakness, He Will Show Himself MIGHTY In Our Midst), our neighbor as ourself, even our enemies and let us not forget The New Commandment to “Love One Another, As I Have Loved You.” Whatever we do is to be done, as unto The Lord, but the statistics show that only 20% of the church is involved, while 80% just come and go or wander around aimlessly, never rooted and grounded, yet confessing to abide in Him (John 15).

    As Praying followers of Messiah, did He not tell us to Hallow His Name and ASK for His Kingdom to Come & His Will To Be Done On Earth, as It Is In Heaven? To ‘HALLOW’ is “to make Holy, Consecrated, Sacred or Revered, to Sanctify and Venerate.” There is No Other NAME Under Heaven (or in the Heavenlies), by which we MUST Be SAVED or Come To Salvation/Yeshua/Jesus.  The above 80% tells me that they need a ‘Come To Jesus Moment!’ We are exhorted in James to Be Doers of The Word and NOT Hearers Only! Faith comes by hearing and hearing by The Word Of God, spoken, written, The Word Become Flesh (Who Is The Author & Finisher, Completer Of Our Faith) and His Holy Spirit.  His Kingdom is to be Proclaimed in ALL The World, but do the 80% really (Experientially) Know what The Kingdom Of God/In God’s Heavenlies Is? According to Paul, It’s Righteousness, Peace & Joy In The Holy Spirit/Ghost (KJV).  He, Jesus Is Our Righteousness, our right standing relationship with our Heavenly Father.  He/Jesus Is Our Shalom, Peace, Wholeness, Fullness & Blessing, The Peace Of God that FAR Surpasses our own limited, human understanding and He/Jesus Is Our Joy & He longs to make our Joy Complete In Him, but we Only Come Into His FULLNESS, when EVERY Member does their part in The Body Of Christ/Messiah/The Anointed ONE, as read in The Book Of Ephesians.

    NOW, more than ever, we need to ASK and come to know The Answer to, What Is The Will Of God?  Jesus Is God (John 1) and He says, “I Will Build My Church!” What’s The Church? Literally The Word used in Scripture is Ecclesia or Ekklesia, meaning The Called Out Ones, referencing The Body & Bride Of Christ, but Philip also calls It in Acts, ‘The Tent In The Desert,’ so we’re seeing an Old Covenant reality here, not just a type and shadow.  Let us not forget that The Bible tells us Jesus was Crucified BEFORE The Foundations Of This World were laid! How Is he Building The Church? By using you and me, His Living Stones, with every gift, talent and ability He has given us.  Peter tells us that He Has Given Us EVERYTHING We Need To Live Our Life Unto Him! Paul says, “My God Shall Supply ALL Of Your Needs, According To His Riches In Glory” and King David declares, “The Lord Is My Shepherd, I Shall Not Want.” Jesus Is The Good Shepherd and we are His Flock, The Sheep Of His Pasture, who ‘supposedly’ Hear His Voice! If you and I WANT God’s Will To Be Done, Upon, In & Through us, as His Chosen People, we Must, PRAY, Hear from Heaven and Respond to Him, Who Sits On The Throne.  Moses was told, By GOD, “Stop Praying And Get The People Moving!”

    The POWER of ONE
    Sisters & Brothers in Jesus,

    As Spring approaches, each of us must break up our fallowed ground and dust off the Winter to yield the fruit God requires of us in March of 2021.  According to the book of Ephesians, when every member within The Body Of Christ/Messiah/The Anointed ONE does their part, we ALL Come Into The FULLNESS Of GOD! WE Are ‘The Planting Of The LORD,’ Called By GOD to be oaks of righteousness, planted by His streams of Living Water, even in a dry and weary land, bringing Hope to the hopeless, The Hope that will Not disappoint us.

    You are just ‘one’ person, so what can you really do? PRAY! Listen to what God’s Holy Spirit is saying to you today.  HEAR what Jesus, Our Good Shepherd says in Mark 12:29-32, what God’s Word tells us in Leviticus 19:18 and Deuteronomy 6:4-15;  “The LORD Our GOD, The LORD Is ONE,” but this is no ordinary word, as it appears in our English translations.  Most would just read it as ‘one’ thinking of its numerical value, meaning singular or just ‘1,’ although that is not the case in either the original Hebrew or Greek meanings.  In Hebrew the number 1 is pronounced Aleph, its Ancient pictogram is an ox and symbol is a bull.  The meanings associated with the pictogram:  Strong leader, strength, leading, the first, aloof or separate, gentle, the beginning, the head of the family and God the Father.  Meanings associated with the number value:  Deity, unity, sufficiency, independence, first, indivisible and God the Father.  Yet, in The Shema (referenced scriptures above) and other portions of Holy Script, where Jesus says, “I and The Father Are ONE” or in His High Priestly Prayer of John 17, that we (The Church/Ekklesia/Ecclesia/The Called Out ONE’s) would Be “ONE” (with Him & The Father by The Holy Spirit).  The words used in both Old & New Covenants are meaning a ‘Unified ONE,’ as in MANY Members, but ONE Body! Most closely ‘In Will & Spirit,’ as in John 10:20; 17:11, 21-23.  In Hebrew the actual word used is Echad (Genesis 2:24; 11:6; 34: 16, 22; 2 Chronicles 30:12; Jeremiah 32:39; Ezekiel 37:17 & Ezra 2:64) and in Greek the actual word used is Hen (Matthew 5:36, 41; 17:4; 19:5, 16; 228:1; John 10:16 & 30; 11:52; 1 Corinthians 8:4; 12:5, 12 & 20; Ephesians 4:6; 5:33; Galatians 3:28; Acts 4:32; Philippians 1:27; 2:2; Romans 3:12, 30; 12:4 & 5 and 15:6), as in the ‘Two shall become ONE flesh (Man + Woman)’ and ‘GOD Is ONE (Father + Son + Spirit),’ ONE People, ONE Heart, Two objects become ONE and/or assembly as ONE (for further references see:  Luke 14:18; Mark 10:8; 14:51 & Revelation 21:21).

    THIS ‘Unified ONE’ is what Jesus/Yeshua/Salvation Prayed for In Us.  Paul says that we have this treasure in these earthen vessels and Peter says GOD has given us EVERYTHING We Need to Live Our LIFE Unto HIM, so let us utilize EVERY Gift, Talent & Ability HE has Given us within The Body Of Christ, The Church Of GOD, but Not by our own might or power.  JESUS says, “You Shall Receive Power When The Holy Spirit Comes Upon YOU,” so let us beseech HIM for HIS Anointing, which breaks down every yoke of sin and bondage.  WE are here for such a time as this, so let your Light SHINE, Pray for Wisdom, James says HE Will Give It To You, but don’t be double minded or ask amiss, MEAN IT! 1 Cor.  1:24 in the Amplified Bible says this, “But to those who are The Called, both Jews and Greeks (Gentiles), Christ Is The ‘POWER’ of God and The Wisdom of God, ” so together In The Spirit we Are ‘ONE.’

    IF You or someone you know would like to hold a Prayer Event in/around NM or online, don’t hesitate to contact me.

    January 2021

     A Blessed 2021 to ALL,
       What should the Body Of Christ be praying for in 2021? As always, we should be praying that His Kingdom of Righteousness, Peace & Joy In The Holy Ghost/Spirit Come & His Will/Word/Way be done on Earth, as It Is In Heaven/In The Heavenlies! So what’s the significance, the Biblical meaning of 2021 in the original Paleo Hebrew language? Can we rightfully divide The Word Of Truth and discern the times we are living in, to know and understand the gift and call on us, for such a time as this?
       The number 20 (2×10) is a concentrated meaning of ordinal perfection, expectancy, emphasizing Redemption and 21’s number value stands for the exceeding sinfulness of sin, three sevens, pointing towards Ultimate Spiritual Perfection! 2 stands for difference, good or evil, division, Living Word, second, to come alongside to help, to come alongside to hinder, second person of the Godhead, God The Son and 1 is Unity, sufficiency, the first, the beginning, indivisible, Diety. 2,000 (1,000×2) means (a double) Divine Completeness and Father’s Glory, so the total of 2021=5, meaning Unmerited Favor, God’s Goodness, Pentateuch (The 5 Books of Moses), Divine Strength, the fifth, what follows creation, Grace.
       The above paragraph is NOT about numerology, but about the richness of The Word Of God and the fullness of meaning found within the original languages God used to have It written in! No one, but God could have seen in 2019, what was coming upon the whole world in 2020, although He declares the end from the beginning. He is the Only Constant, The Rock upon Which we Must Stand, since we are All closer now, to His Second Coming, than when we first believed. No man knows the day or the hour of our Soon Coming King, but it is imminent, so we must pay very close attention, in this day and age, to hear His Voice and understand His Times & Seasons! As we enter into 2021, I leave you to ask yourself these 22 self-examination questions the members of the Holy Club asked themselves each day as part of their daily devotions (started in November 1729 when John Wesley and his three friends, spent three or four evenings together, every week, while living at the University of Oxford).
    1.  Am I consciously or unconsciously creating the impression that I am better than I really am?
    2.  Am I honest in all my acts and words?
    3.  Do I confidentially pass on to another what was told me in confidence?
    4.  Can I be trusted?
    5.  Am I a slave to dress, friends, work or habits?
    6.  Am I self-conscious, self-pitying, or self-justifying?
    7.  Did the Bible live in me today?
    8.  Do I give it time to speak to me every day?
    9.  Am I enjoying prayer?
    10.  When did I last speak to someone else about my faith?
    11.  Do I pray about the money I spend?
    12.  Do I get to bed on time and get up on time?
    13.  Do I disobey God in anything?
    14.  Do I insist about doing something about which my conscience is uneasy?
    15.  Am I defeated in any part of my life?
    16.  Am I jealous, impure, critical, irritable, toughy or distrustful?
    17.  How do I spend my spare time?
    18.  Am I proud?
    19.  Do I thank God that I am not as other people, especially as the Pharisee who dispised the publican?
    20.  Is there anyone whom I fear, dislike, disown, criticize, hold a resentment toward or disregard?
    21.  Do I grumble or complain constantly?
    22.  Is Christ real to me?
    Friday, January 1 is New Year’s Day & Monday, January 18 is Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday (Observed).
    If you or someone you know would like to hold an event in, around New Mexico or online, don’t hesitate to contact me.
    May The Fullness Of His Riches Be Yours in 2021!

    JESUS Asked in Luke 18:8b, ” When the Son of Man comes, will He find ‘faith‘ on earth? ” What is the Hebrew Root meaning of Faith? It is the act whereby a person lays hold of God’s resources, becomes obedient to what He has prescribed and putting aside all self interest and self-reliance, ‘trusts’ Him completely.

    WHY Don’t We ‘Trust’ ANYONE, ANYWHERE, About ANYTHING, EVER?

    JESUS Asked in Luke 18:8b, ” When the Son of Man comes, will He find ‘faith‘ on earth?” What is the Hebrew Root meaning of Faith? It is the act whereby a person lays hold of God’s resources, becomes obedient to what He has prescribed and putting aside all self interest and self-reliance, ‘trusts’ Him completely.  The Amplified Bible says, ‘To Believe In, Rely On, Cling To, Adhere To, Be Confident In (@ ALL times, with ALL your heart, mind, soul, Spirit [even in your weakness] & strength), Recognize and Acknowledge, Hold On To, Keep Going, Hope For & ‘TRUST’ In!’ You’re either responding like the Pharisee in Luke 18:11b-12, ‘I thank you, God, that I am not like other people—cheaters, sinners, adulterers. I’m certainly not like that tax collector! 12 I fast twice a week, and I give you a tenth of my income,’ truly justified before God, as in Luke 18:13, “But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, ‘O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner,” or being open and honest before Jesus and humbly proclaiming, “I do believehelp me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9:24, ESV.

    MANY of us have prayed for corruption to be exposed and now what was behind the curtain is blatantly in our face 24/7/365, so we’re suffering through a time of overexposure, overwhelmed, frustrated, disappointed in the world that we find ourselves living in, but we are NOT of this world! Yes, we’re in it, but to complete the works that Our Heavenly Father has called us to, what He has prepared for us to do, as salt and light, Ambassadors for Christ/Messiah/The Anointed ONE, Ministers of The Gospel, The Good News, to bring Hope, Shalom, Peace, Wholeness, Fullness, Blessing, Joy, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Self Control, Forbearance, LOVE & His FAITH-FULLNESS, because without Faith/’Trust,’ It Is IMPOSSIBLE To Please GOD.  Whatever we do unto the least of these, in this present world of darkness, we have done it unto Him, The Light Of The World, The Hope Of Israel, The Hope Of The Nations & The HOPE that will not disappoint us!

    THIS Holy-Day Season, Come Let Us Adore HIM, Bow Down Before HIM, Humble Ourselves In The Sight Of The Mighty GOD that HE Is and ‘TRUST,’ recommit our lives to HIM, cleansed by The Blood Of The LAMB Of GOD, Who Has Taken Away Our Sin, that has so easily beset us, before such a Great Cloud Of Witnesses/Martyrs and Listen/Take Heed to what The Holy Spirit Is Saying to The Church/Ekklesia/The Called Out Ones TODAY, so that we can usher in The Second Coming of Our LORD & Savior, JESUS.  In spite of all the trying situations and circumstances everyone in the world has dealt with in 2020, God Is With Us and Promises to Take Us Through, to Bring Us Forth as GOLD, so TAKE Courage & Keep PRAYING, for Our Redemption Draws Near and Look Unto HIM, Who Is The Author & Finisher/Completer of Our FAITH (Trust).  Finish WELL!

    Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    And lean not on your own understanding;
    In all your ways acknowledge Him,
    And He will make your paths straight.

    Proverbs 3:5-6

    Sisters & Brothers,           

    As Prayer Warriors, Intercessors Of The Most High GOD, WHAT do we ‘really’ believe and how do we respond to The Father, regarding such faith? Our LORD, Jesus ‘knew’ God heard, listened and responded to HIM, according to His Word & Will, so HE came to show us, demonstrate The Way and as followers of Yeshua/Salvation, disciples of Christ/Messiah, HE Calls & Commissions us to ‘GO And Do Likewise,’ with Wisdom and IN the Likeness of His Expressed Image!

    John 11:42 I knew that You always hear Me and listen to Me; but I have said this because of the people standing around, so that they may believe that You have sent Me [and that You have made Me Your representative] (AMP).”

    EACH and Every ‘confessing’ Believer on planet Earth are anointed and empowered by The Holy Spirit (which is upon, in and working through us) to represent Him, as Ambassadors for His Kingdom purposes of Righteousness, Peace/Shalom and Joy, bringing the essence of Christ (Everywhere we go) and ‘being’ The Light in this present world of darkness, as He brings our faith to ‘maturity,’ perfectness (in the Refiners Fire, which will bring us forth, as gold).
    Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of [a]witnesses [who by faith have testified to the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us, [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, [b]disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work] (AMP).

    The Book of Hebrews tell us that we are under a ‘New & Better’ Covenant, by Faith, In Love, so how much more therefore, should we not pray like Nehemiah and others, Going BOLDLY into His Throne Room of Grace & Mercy, responding to the situations and circumstances of our day, with pleadings, intercessions, petitions, Crying Unto HIM, Knowing that ALL Good Things Come Down From GOD Out Of HEAVEN!

    Nehemiah 1:And I said, “Please, O Lord God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps the covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments,please let Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open to hear the prayer of Your servant which I am praying before You, day and night, on behalf of Your servants, the [d]sons (descendants) of Israel (Jacob), confessing the sins of the sons of Israel which we have committed against You; I and my father’s house have sinned. We have acted very corruptly against You and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the ordinances which You commanded Your servant Moses (AMP).

    IF Jesus ALWAYS Lives to Intercede and Intervene on our behalf and others, should we not THEN, as followers of HIM, Humble ourselves and PRAY Without Ceasing, Lifting Up Holy Hands and Plead The Blood Of Yeshua/Salvation, over our state, nation and the world, so that the Purchase of JESUS would save those who HE died for, ONCE & FOR ALL?

    Hebrews 7:25 Therefore He is able also to save forever (completely, perfectly, for eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede and intervene on their behalf [with God] (AMP).

    NOT only is HE ‘Able,’ but He Is ‘WILLING,’ that None would perish and ALL would Come (Unto HIM) to Repentance, so let us not just pray, but Seek & Save the lost, for the time is short, JESUS Is Coming, Quickly & SOON, don’t grow weary in well doing, for HE is bringing a New Creation & Justice.  ALL Nations shall come unto Him and The Earth will be FILLED with His GLORY, so let’s do our part and come into The FULLNESS of His Presence On Earth, as It IS In HEAVEN!

    READ Psalm 119:89-Psalm 136; Proverbs 27:1-29:27; Ezekiel 1-48; James 3-5; 1 Peter 1-2 Peter 3; 1 John 1-3 John; Jude & Revelation 1!

    Isaiah 40:29

    He gives strength to the weary,
    And to him who has no might He increases power.
    30 
    Even youths grow weary and tired,
    And vigorous young men stumble badly,
    31 
    But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]
    Will gain new strength and renew their power;
    They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun];
    They will run and not become weary,
    They will walk and not grow tired. 

     

    To All Saint: October 2020

    MOST, if not ALL of you have heard this question at one time or another asked, “Why do bad things happen to good people? It’s a humbling experience to realize that Our Heavenly Father, GOD, Creator of ALL Things, seen and unseen, Who Is GOOD All The Time, has quite a different view, since His Ways are NOT our ways.  I encourage you to prayerfully read over the following portions of Holy Script and ask for the Gift of Repentance for our own thoughts, words and deeds.  Pay close attention to the fact that both Old & New Covenants come together with Jesus, in three of the four Gospels + writings from His own brother, James.

    Psalm 14:3 They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt;

    there is none who does good,

    not even one (ESV).

     

    Matt. 19: 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good?   There is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

     

     

    Mark 10: 17 And as he was setting out on his journey, a man ran up and knelt before him and asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one isgood except God alone.

     

    Luke 18:19 NASB

    And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.

    NOW that we’ve been schooled in The Truth that NONE is Good, but God and JESUS IS GOD, according to John 1, let’s take an even closer look at what being NOT Good means for us from God’s vantagepoint.

    Matthew 7: 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

    Luke 11:13 So if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!

    NOBODY wants to be called EVIL, especially by God, but thank goodness that His Mercies are New EVERY Morning and where sin abounds, His Holy Spirit GRACE Abounds, that Much MORE therefore! We MUST Enter His Gates with THANKSGIVING in our hearts & His Courts with PRAISE, because He Is Worthy, He Inhabits the Praises of His People and is Enthroned upon the Praises of Israel.  What our enemy has meant for evil, God works ALL things together for our GOOD, for those who LOVE Him and are Called, according to His Plan & Purpose.  He’s wishing that NONE would perish and that ALL would Come to Repentance.  Paul The Apostle said this in Acts 17:30 “In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.” You and I, EVERYONE In The Body Of Christ, have the FULL Time Ministry of Reconcilliation.  As Ambassadors for Christ/Messiah and His Kingdom of Righteousness, Peace/Shalom & Joy In The Holy Ghost/Spirit, we must continually Pray, Ask, Seek & Knock, Turn from our wicked/evil ways, REPENT, Believe, Cling To, Trust In and Rely on ALL The Precious Promises Of God Being YES & AMEN In Him! Brothers & Sisters, apart from The Holy Spirit, Living, Moving and Having HIS Being In us & us Walking out our Salvation/Yeshua/Jesus by FAITH In Him, The Word Of God tells us, We Can Do NOTHING!

    Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows,” 1 Chronicles 16:11-12.

    James 1:17 (AMP)

    Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of lights [the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens], in whom there is no variation [no rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [for He is perfect and never changes]. 
    JESUS Christ Is The Same, Yesterday, TODAY & Forever, so let us hold fast and hard to these truths expressed in The Bible.  Light shines best in the darkness, YOU Are The Light Of The World, HE’s for us not against us, NO weapon formed against us shall prosper, EVERY Firey dart of the enemy will fall, when we hold up our shield of Faith, so in these dark and trying times, press in, look up, for our Redemption is drawing near, closer now, than when we first believed.  He’s calling us to arise & shine, because the time is short, the fields are ripe for harvest, so Pray to The LORD, receive your marching orders and do your part, so we can ALL come into the FULLness of God, Jew, Gentile, male, female, slave & FREE Indeed, In Jesus’ Holy & Precious Name!

    Many voices standing together declaring the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the oneness of HIS body.

     

    The Return is a movement, an appointed time, and a specific day set apart for one purpose – the return to God by coming before His presence in humility, in sincerity in prayer, and repentance.

    Re-ZOOM-ing Church?

    WHEN You Gather…  For most around the world, we’re wondering what’s next? Many have chosen online venues to get The Gospel out and though some churches have opened to limited capacity, God is not limited in any way, for He’s The Same, Yesterday, Today & FOREVER! How then shall we live or how then shall we meet have been the questions asked, but it’s up to the individual Believer to figure out what works God has prepared for us to do in such a time as this.  In The Book Of Acts they met at The Temple, Synagogues, in the marketplace and ‘House To House,’ which I have always thought was The Way to go into ALL The World.  From the oldest to the youngest, God wishes that NONE would perish, but that ALL would Come To Repentance, so each of us must do our part in order for The Body to come together In The FULLNESS that Jesus Purchased ONCE FOR ALL!
    Children In Prayer New Mexico is back, so we’re asking everyone to pray, just 1 minute a day for God to open doors, connect the generations and bring up ALL Children In The Way.  LISTEN & WATCH The 11th Hour with Dennis Prochnow – FRIDAYS 11am-12noon MDT On The ChristianBody.Net Internet Radio & Television Network @christianbody.net @YouTube @facebook @twitter @streamingchurch.tv @churchapp.live @zeno @roku @zoom + 24/7/365 On ALL Our Websites (OVER 100,000 People Click EVERY Month In 73 NATIONS).  Darkness can not overtake The Light, but we MUST Let Our Light Shine to dispel the darkness! Prayer Mapping our state is an ongoing process of revelation for everyone involved.  God is still working ALL things together for our good, so we must remain vigilant in prayer and faithful to The ONE, Who has called and gifted us to Unite, Inspire & Revive The Church + Seek & Save The Lost.  Jesus Is Coming Again SOON, we’re closer to The End NOW, than when we first believed and there’s no time to linger, but we have to move forward GOD’s Way! National Day Of Prayer is in 52 Days Of Prayer for America, since July 17 – Labor Day, September 7, when hopefully our schools will be opened, but I hope you’re already participating in this, because I Believe God is preparing us to get through this summer, breaking up the fallowed ground and looking toward HIS Biblical Feasts & High Holy Days of September.  Noontime in Santa Fe Plaza on September 12, there will be a time of prayer, worship, The Word and Christian Fellowship.

    Jonathan Friz https://www.10days.net/ & Jonathan Cahn https://thereturn.org/ have come up with a plan that I’m hoping and praying ALL Followers Of Christ/Messiah/The Anointed ONE can come together in Unity, by The Holy Spirit, in New Mexico, Across America & Around The World! PLEASE, visit these websites and sign-up to participate + share this information with those you know and LOVE from ALL Nations, Peoples, Tribes & Tongues.  We are planning The Return Event @ Sandia Crest, September 26, the times have not yet been determined, but we will notify you in the September NM Prayer Connect Newsletter.  PRAYERFULLY Consider Joining us for the 10 Days of Prayer and Fasting from sundown, September 18-28 sundown and encourage others to do likewise.

    READINGS for August:  Neh.  4-13; Ps.  90-104; Prov.  19:18-21:31; 2Cor.  5-13; Est.  1-10; Job 1-42; Gal. 1-5; Eph.  1-5; Eccl.  12 & Songs 1-8

     

    To All Saints

    July 2020
    To ALL The Saints,
         JESUS Is Coming Back To WAR against Spiritual Rebellion (Lawlessness), so LISTEN to What The Holy Spirit Of GOD Is Saying to YOU, As The CHURCH Today! Contemplate on The Prophetic Words spoken over you, your state, nation, the WHOLE world that The Father LOVES and Sent His One & Only Begotten SON to Redeem. What about ALL those Unanswered Prayers, Have you kept Asking, Seeking & Knocking, going BOLDLY Unto HIS Throne Of GRACE & MERCY? We are Commanded to Pray Unceasingly, In The Spirit, Lifting Up HOLY Hands, Interceding on behalf of ALL, for GOD Wishes that NONE would Perish, but that ALL Would COME To Repentance! MANY, Many Today are signing petitions and protesting, but How Many of us are Petitioning The Judge Of ALL The Earth, for HIS Will To Be DONE, Here & NOW, As It Is In HEAVEN? COME & Adore HIM, Bow Down before HIM, Humble Your-SELF, Pray, SEEK His Face, Turn from our wicked ways, so HE Will HEAR from HEAVEN & HEAL Our Land! Difficult topics, situations and circumstances MUST Be Discussed In Our Day, so let us have a seat at His Table & Reason TOGETHER, Moving Forward, as HE Brings Correction, Discipline, Healing and RESTORATION, for we ALL Have This Ministry Of RECONCILIATION.
         PSALM 34:4 “I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.” ALL Of GOD’s Promises Are YES & AMEN In Christ JESUS!
         The GOSPEL, GOOD News of John, Presents Christ as: The divine Son of God:  “The Word was God”, (1,1); “the Lamb of God.” (1:29); the Messiah (1:41); “the Son of God” and “the King of Israel” (1:49); “the Savior of the world” (4:42); “Lord and …God” (20:28), With MANY references throughout the book that Jesus says of Himself:  “I Am…” (6:35; 8:12; 10:7, 9, 11, 14; 11:25; 14:6; 15: 1, 5) as well as (4:24, 26; 8:24, 28, 58; 13:19).  THIS Is The GOD We SERVE, The ONE Who turns water into wine (2:1-11), Cures the nobleman’s son (4:46-54), The paralytic (5:1-18), Feeds the multitude (6:6-13), Walks on the water
    (6:16-21), Gives sight to the blind (9:1-7) & Raises Lazarus from The Dead (11:1-45)!
         ACTS 1 {3Promises} A. 1st promise: Vs. 4-5 “Wait for the gift from My Father.” This is new! Deity choosing and wanting to live in us! Complete, enveloping immersion,Covers &fills. A Brand new closeness, intimacy, and identity. You belong. You are family. You are close and forever now identified. “I am putting my Name on you!” Read Deuteronomy 31:8 B. 2nd promise: Vs. 6-8 “You shall receive power to witness.” Jesus is not asking or suggesting.   He is declaring!(The idea is of commanding ) This is what all of my Followers will be doing. In Acts, we see entirely different men. Supernatural strength to witness, endure, and suffer rejection. C. 3rd promise: Vs. 9-11 “Jesus will come back the same way He left.” Purpose? Witness!
        WE Must PRESS Onward & Upward, Persevere Unto The END!
          This Month READ 1 Chronicles 7-2 Chronicles 36; Romans 14-16; Psalms 79-89; Proverbs 17:1-19:1-17; 1 Corinthians 1-2 Corinthians 4; Ezra 1-10 & Nehemiah 1-3.
          JULY 4th Is INDEPENDENCE DAY!
    Shalom,

    Hope FULL!

    Sisters & Brothers In Christ,
                The Word Of God declares that (True, Biblical) HOPE Will Not Disappoint Us and the world will ask us if the glass is 1/2 empty or 1/2 full.  Our perspective matters, so are we looking at this present world of darkness or unto Jesus, As The Author & Finisher Of Our Faith to catch God’s Vision for HIS Light to Shine In & Through us?  HE says, “YOU Are The Light Of The World!” How’s that REALLY working for us? Questions need answers, but our opinions don’t matter.  TRUTH ‘trumps’ the lie, so let us take a stand on The Solid Rock, know who we are In HIM and dispel the darkness in the spiritual realms that are manifesting in the natural.

    I am writing this newsletter on Pentecost Sunday, God’s Feast Of Shavuot, 50 days after Resurrection Sunday, God’s Feast Of First-Fruits (Joel 2 & Acts 2).  It is The Time Of Divine Revelation, before The Second Coming Of Our LORD! How are those Holy Spirit dreams and visions working for you?

    Perhaps we have been praying, like the faithful women and men in the upper room for 10 days in Jerusalem, according to Acts 1, but are we receiving what Our Heavenly Father has for us in this day and hour?

    Are we ‘dwelling, ‘ abiding In Christ, The Living Word, In Harmony with ‘The Same’ (Yesterday, Today & Forever) Mind & Of ONE Purpose, In-Stead (In Step) with The True (HOLY) Spirit, ‘The Same’ LOVE, In FULL Accord, Of ONE Harmonious Mind & Intention (Intent)? Philippians 2 exhorts us to ‘LET,’ Allow This SAME Attitude & Purpose (Of HIS Kingdom) and [Humble] Mind to BE In YOU, Being ONE With GOD, In The FULLNESS Of The Attributes Of GOD, to ‘Assume’ The Guise Of A (THE) Servant! According to HIS Holy & Precious WORD, We Have Been Given The Mind Of Christ & HIS Holy Spirit, Gifts, Talents, Abilities & FAITH – EVERYTHING we Need To Live Our LIFE Unto HIM.  WE Need to HUMBLE Our-SELF & PRAY (2 Chronicles 7:14)!

    EVERY Knee Should (MUST) Bow, EVERY Tongue Acknowledge/CONFESS That JESUS CHRIST Is LORD, To The GLORY Of GOD, The FATHER.  Listen & Respond properly to what The Spirit Of The LORD Is Saying and Showing us to do in ‘such a time as this.’ GO Forward In The FULLNESS Of GOD!

    Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (NIV).”

    READ:  1 Kings 3-22; 2 Kings 1-25; 1 Chronicles 1-6; Acts 20-28; Romans 1-13; Psalms 71-78 & Proverbs 15:1-16:33.

    JUNE 15th is Flag Day, 20th is the First Day Of Summer & 21st is Father’s Day.
