No Sacrifice
By Jason Upton
Album: Faith

To You I give my life
Not just the parts I want to

To You I sacrifice
These dreams that I hold onto

Chorus:
Your thoughts are higher than mine
Your words are deeper than mine
Your love is stronger than mine
This is no sacrifice, here’s my life

To You I give the gifts
Your love has given me
How can I hoard the treasures
That You designed for free

Chorus:
Your thoughts are HIGHER than mine
Your words are DEEPER than mine
Your love is STRONGER than mine
This is no sacrifice, HERE’S MY LIFE

Randy Stonehill: “Shut De Do, Keep Out De Devil”

Shut De Do
By Randy Stonehill

Chorus:
Shut de do, keep out de devil
Shut de do, keep de devil in the night.
Shut de do, keep out de devil
Light de candle, everything is alright
Light de candle, everything is alright

Oh when I was a baby child (Shut de do, keep out de devil)
Good and bad were just a game (Shut de do, keep de devil in the night)
Many years and many trials (Shut de do, keep out de devil)
They proved to me they’re not the same (Shut de do, keep de devil in the night)

Oh, Satan is an evil charmer (Shut de do, keep out de devil)
He’s hungry for a soul to hurt (Shut de do, keep de devil in the night)
And without your holy armor (Shut de do, keep out de devil)
He will eat you for dessert (Shut de do, keep de devil in the night)

Have-We-Forgiven Gauge: “If There is Pain In a Memory There is Bitterness”

.

“If there is pain in a memory there is bitterness.”

– Art Mathias

.

From: Wellspring Ministries, Anchorage, Alaska

If there is any emotional pain in a situation or memory, then we know that some degree of bitterness is present. Only His precepts of forgiveness and repentance can remove the anger, resentment, shame or guilt in our memories. Our book Biblical Foundations of Freedom leads the reader through a process of recognizing and dealing with anger, resentment, jealousy and envy, rejection, fear and the occult.

Medical science and psychology demonstrate in thousands of clinical trials the way in which negative emotions affect our health. In His Own Image explains how our brain/nervous system, endocrine (hormones) system and immune systems are affected by many different negative emotions. This is a fascinating study that will open your eyes to the causes of most of our diseases.

As people come before the Lord in repentance and forgiveness, destroying the lies of Satan, and gaining victory through choosing to live according to God’s will in their lives, most emotional and physical diseases are healed and bodies return to peace and proper function. This restoration and healing is true Biblical freedom.

Gods Of Men

[…]

And I used to dream of chasing vengeance
All my ENEMIES would crawl and sweat.
Well my HAPPINESS was drained from reliving all the pain
Now I’m learning to FORGIVE and FORGET*.

[Chorus]
As the world, keeps turning ’round,
You either learn to bend with the wind or it knocks you down.
Turn your back on the gods of men
And the Lord, who is true, will give LIFE back to you again.

My Favorite Phil Keaggy Song: “March of the Clouds” — The Ascent Towards Heaven!

Filed under: Music Videos • ONE!,Revival • ONE! — Jeff Fenske @ 6:34 pm

I saw Phil Keaggy play “March of the Clouds” about 1/2 of my lifetime ago, and had the great pleasure of telling him that this song reminds me of heaven. He smiled and said something like: “really?”

To me, this marching of the clouds symphonic illustration also has a strong ascending quality, a rising up toward heaven, kind of like in The Spiral Staircase Vision, but with no lonely downside, because the body of Christ is marching up the staircase together, towards God as ONE unit — everyone right with each other and finally, truly ‘in Christ’ — each led by the Holy Spirit.

I don’t know what Phil was thinking when he wrote this song, but it’s interesting that he chose the image of clouds marching across the sky. For every cloud is a unique, one-of-a-kind, though the entire sky is often filled with clouds that are all moving in exactly the same direction, moving as if ONE.

Paul’s picture in 1 Corinthians 12 is similar. “You are the body of Christ” (v. 27) One is a foot, another is an eye, etc., each having different spiritual giftings. But “there should be no schism in the body” (v. 25a). We need each other to be able to march as ONE — in Christ, our Head.

Rick Joyner’s vision comes to mind: “When we reached the level called “The Unity of the Brethren,” none of the enemy’s arrows could reach us.”

ONE will happen, and it will be glorious!!

A 1-minute tribute from the stupendous middle section

The March of the Clouds

A few of the YouTube comments:

“playing with the finger and the plectrum of God, he could calm an army of sauls.”

“This is the song that God plays at the cloud factory :)”

“If I had to define Phil Keaggy musically, I’d say this: His greatest talent and gift, I believe, isn’t just that he plays so well – its that he also knows exactly where and how to hang each note – as if he’s decorating with the music. He’s an artist more than a guitar player. He just paints with music.”

A Lively Discussion on The Red Gate Prophecy (previous post)

Filed under: Freedom • ONE! — Jeff Fenske @ 10:23 am

Hello,

We’re currently having a lively discussion at Andrew Strom’s site regarding this important RED Gate prophecy, which I’ve also posted below.

Feel free to check it out and perhaps contribute.

“Freedom in Christ” is when the red gate is fully shut — when we truly are abiding in Him — not willfully sinning sins that lead to death — resting — FREEEEEEEEEEEEE!

In Him, we’ll be ONE with each other.

FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE—————DOM————–!!!

The Red Gate Prophecy — What If I Open It Just a Little Bit? The believers, not the non-believers, have opened the gate to sin, which is why this country has deteriorated

This is so true!! My heart leaped when I read this!

From: Revival School (Andrew Strom)

THE RED GATE PROPHECY – Michael Quintana.

I was awakened a few years ago by a disturbing dream I had one morning. The disturbing thing about this dream was that I had no idea where it came from, what it meant, and why I was shown this dream. There was no interpretation given me of what this dream meant which added frustration to my not knowing. The reality, intensity and urgency of this dream left me with many questions that were not immediately answered. The interpretation of this dream was given to me about two years later by God again but this time it was given to me through an extraordinary day vision. This dream had to do with me, California and the country.

The DREAM

It was early 2002 that this disturbing dream came to me while I was asleep one night. I was fast asleep when all of a sudden I woke up in the middle of nowhere in what looked to be the middle of the Central California valley. I recognized the valley because of the mountains east and west of me. I grew up in this Central California valley and I am very familiar with the surroundings. I was not scared but it was odd standing there in the middle of nowhere and not in my bedroom. This may seem odd but I felt wide awake like when I wake up every morning. The only difference was that my senses seemed to be on extra sensitive.

In fact I felt more awake, alert, and alive than when I wake up normally in my bedroom. I woke up into this incredible bright sunny beautiful day with the clearest clean air and a clearest blue sky I ever saw. I was standing on what seemed to be a greener than green oasis. I could clearly see the mountains in front of and behind me. This was just like when I was a child after a rain. I could clearly see the mountains on the east and west side of me. What caught my attention between me on the oasis and the mountains east and west of me were the miles and miles of this rich dark soiled dirt.

I then took notice that I was standing on the north side of this little green grassy oasis which was about two to 4 acres. Right at the edge of this green oasis just north of me was this big brighter than bright red gate. It was just standing on the outer edge of the greener than green oasis.

It was so odd to see this big red gate standing in front of me in the middle of nowhere. Everything looked like it belonged except this red gate. There was no fence or wall attached to this big bright red gate. It was just odd to see it standing there by itself.

I felt happiness and joy to be there in front of this big red gate. All of a sudden, I heard God’s voice out of nowhere. He then gave me very stern instructions. I knew this was God’s voice because I have heard his voice before and I know his voice. He said in a stern voice, “Mike, do not open the red gate”!

Pastor Chuck Baldwin: Will Evangelicals Ever Admit They Were Duped by Bush?

Filed under: 'Church' is the Cause of the Crash,Freedom • ONE! — Jeff Fenske @ 11:52 pm

From: News with Views, Where Are Dobson And PCC Now?

I ask my non-Christian friends to bear with me on this column. As one will quickly see, this column is addressed to my fellow Christian conservatives.

Regular readers of this column know that one of my chief frustrations is the way Christian conservatives (otherwise known as the “Religious Right”) are so easily deceived by Republican politicians. The all-time classic illustration of this foible is the way the Religious Right was (and is) so enamored with President George W. Bush. No matter what Bush did: no matter how egregiously unconstitutional, no matter how utterly stupid, no matter how blatantly evil his actions were, Christian conservatives (almost universally) either robotically accepted and approved what he did, or blindly looked the other way. It was maddening!

It was as if Christian conservatives lost all ability to reason; it was as if they lost all discernment and discretion. Because George W. Bush claimed to be a Christian, and because he was a Republican, he could do no wrong. To this very day, the only group of people who yet approves of Bush’s Presidency is the Religious Right. Everyone else on the planet realizes that George W. Bush’s Presidency will go down in history has one of the all-time worst.

George Bush took a prosperous and robust economy, and led America to the verge of a second Great Depression. He has taken a (relatively) free and independent republic to the brink of becoming a globalist Police State. He has pushed the envelope of executive power; he has trampled individual liberty; he has made a mockery of justice; and he has made America the laughingstock of the world. In addition, Bush has misused and abused our nation’s bravest and finest by his illegal and inexcusable invasion of Iraq. No matter. The Religious Right still loves him. Why? Because he is a “Christian” Republican.

Since 2000, James Dobson, Pensacola Christian College (PCC), and their peers around the country have had an eight-year lovefest with George W. Bush. …

So, George W. Bush clearly stated that he does not believe the Bible is God’s Holy, inspired Word. Will Dobson and PCC still say that Bush is “one of us”?

I am confident, however, that Bush’s statements will do nothing to diminish his god-like status with James Dobson and the rest of the Religious Right in America. For eight long and bloody years, Christian conservatives have been selling their convictions, doctrines, and even their consciences to George W. Bush. I will even go so far as to say that, in many respects, millions of Christians have turned President Bush into an idol. …

Of course, Barack Obama will not escape the public repudiation of Dobson and Company. Why? He is a Democrat. You see, it’s not principle; it’s partisan politics that matters, after all.

While we are asking questions, when will our fellow Christians and pastors finally open their history books? When will they read the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence? And when will they open their minds and hearts–even a crack–to the possibility that they might have been duped, and that there is more to being elected to the office of President besides being a “Christian” Republican? Probably never.

Saul Hated David, Refusing to Let God’s Choice Lead, and It’s No Different Today

Wow! Is this interesting, and very important!!

I don’t necessarily agree with the author’s conclusion, but the parts I’ve bolded ring totally true with what I’ve seen.

It’s time to let those who are truly called by God to lead, and for the others to not be jealous any more—but rather thankful, and submissive—so Jesus can be Lord, Head of His church—finally!!

This isn’t a competition, a sporting event for guys to be seen by men; or a contest of who can speak the best…. This isn’t a game! This is about God having His way, not man having theirs.

He has placed His gifts in the body as He determines. It is sin to place others in charge who are not specifically called by God to lead. And God makes it clear who these are. But the Sauls play dumb, for they would have to relinquish their power to God, Himself, if they put the Davids in charge—and maybe even admit that they’ve been wrong, and “get right with those they’ve hurt.”

Where is the fear of the Lord? It is written: “The Lord will judge His people.” [Heb. 10:30]

Finally, can we do it right this time? Pretty please?

Jesus, have Your way. You are King! Live through us!

ENRAGED Yet ANOINTED??
-D. Leesley.

And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied… And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah. And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?” (1 Sam 19).

The question has come up. Can a man of God operate in the flesh and yet have the blessing and anointing of God in their life? Can they display the workings of the Holy Spirit one time and operate like the devil himself at other times? Or worse yet, can the man of God or teacher or preacher speak with the Holy unction and at the very same time speak falsehood while under that unction?

King Saul was a man after the people’s own hearts. They had refused God’s desire and divine purpose which was to be their King and Lord personally. They wanted a man they could see and touch. One they could lavish their love and praise upon. God told Samuel to give them what they want. Give them their heart’s desire. But at the end of the day, they’d wish they had made a better decision. God even warned them about their folly in chapter 8.

Saul took his armies to battle and won victories right and left. God surely must be pleased with the ‘new program’, right? Wrong. It still wasn’t God’s perfect plan or purpose.

We have today, what I call, a ‘church gone wild’. Tithing, titles and tiers, and might I add, tears. Tears of those who are suffering under an abusive system of control, greed and arrogance. And yet God does tend to His out of sync flock in spite of 1700 years of ignoring the N.T. plan and mould for the ‘body elect’.

Even as Saul was NOT God’s desired progam, yet His helping hand remained upon Israel. In these few verses we read about a very evil, arrogant and envious man who God appointed over Israel only because of their rejection of God’s position in their midst.

The time did finally come when God said ‘enough is enough’. He was about to replace Saul with David, a man after His own heart. David was anointed and humble. Disinterested, only caring about what God wanted. This drove Saul nuts with rage and jealousy. We all know the story here.

But look at this. Saul sent his messengers to find David and take him captive and bring him to Saul so he could destroy him. This leader’s closest companions had no real problem with this. But when they came upon Samuel and the prophets prophesying, the Spirit of the Lord came upon them and they spoke under the unction as well. They returned unto Saul and told him that the Holy Ghost had come upon them and they had a mini revival. Saul sent other messengers two more times with the same results.

Yet we do not read where these compadres had any change of heart about their mission. Finally Saul made the journey and when he arrived the Holy Ghost came upon him as well and he prophesied all night long. What a gloroius time in the Lord. What power displayed. Yet this man never reversed his plan to kill humble David, to rid himself he thought, in so doing, of conviction.

David flees to Jonathan crying [my paraphrase] ‘ What have I done? What’s wrong with me that God’s appointed leader doesn’t like me or want me around? I have honored him. I have behaved myself in humility around him. I have surrendered all to my God…I have…” Uh Oh!! There it is. A sure plan of action for rejection by God’s anointed leader.

This has not changed, trust me. I have witnessed this first hand many times in the modern institution we call ‘church.’ The more humble you become, the more surrendered to God you strive to be, the more anointing you obtain, the more proof you make of your ministry, the more cold shoulders from the hierarchy of organized religion you will witness.

So the premise of this piece is, can the true anointing be in play while a heart full of wickedness is still maintained? According to what we just looked at in the story of Saul, the answer would be yes. Can the same scenario exist today under the new covenant? My opinion would be yes, definitely.

[WordPOWER!] 2 Peter 3: BEWARE, in the LAST DAYS People Will Be WILLINGLY IGNORANT

Filed under: WordPOWER — Jeff Fenske @ 1:07 am

<< 2 Peter 3 >>
KJV

1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
