Please let NO FEAR be your Battle Cry, because if you allow it to rule in your life IT WILL RUIN what God has planned. I know this first hand, I am going through a situation now that requires MORE FAITH than EVER, MORE STRENGTH that only HE provides. It’s utterly amazing how so many of my fears not so long ago, that I thought were gone, surfaced after the Lord put this teaching on my heart, but I am thankful because HE brought those fears to the surface to SHAKE THEM LOOSE so HE can use me for HIS glory and good pleasure, AND PRAISE GOD HE DID JUST THAT!!

Check this out…… that very day 2 of them were going to a village named Emmaus – about 7 miles from Jerusalem, 7 MILES….7 MILES…7 Miles away, how ever many minutes by car, how ever many minutes it’d take you to run that…an hour, 2 hours, 4 days…..7 miles from Jerusalem and they were talking to each other about all these things and what had happened….. while they were talking and discussing together, JESUS Himself drew near…and listen to this……WENT WITH THEM —-WHERE???? TO EMMAUS….HOW FAR AWAY IS THAT?? 7 MILES.
Lemme tell you why I’m pointing this out – Historically, not biblically, Historically this causes a lot of trouble for the secular mind….so there’s all these theories about how to deal with it….. one of the theories is – that when they arrested Him, beat Him a dozen times, yanked the beard out of his face…..drove nails through His hands and feet. After they ripped the skin off His back and left Him hanging there for 6 HOURS…then took a spear and DROVE IT under His rib cage through His lungs and back out, spilling blood and water all over the cross, that maybe they didn’t kill Him, that they put Him into the ground and 2 DAYS LATER, HE’S WALKING 7 MILES TO EMMAUS WITH 2 GUYS.
RIDICULOUS…..THE WORLD SAYS…. THEY SAY YOU’D HAVE TO BE AN IDIOT TO BELIEVE THAT THEORY….I mean come on ….Have you ever broken a toe and tried to walk without looking like your hips exploded inside your PELVIS????
The theory….the historical, Discovery Channel theory is that after this unbelievable beating, JESUS is 2 days later walking to Emmaus for 7 miles
NOW THAT’S SILLY….. The world says… All the goofiness that is Christianity, that’s right up there with the dumbest things those Christians believe, that after having your full body weight bared down on a nail driven through the center of both your feet that 48 hours later your walking a 7 MILE JAUNT TO EMMAUS…..
THANK YOU JESUS THAT THIS GOOFY CHRISTIAN IS NO LONGER
CONFORMED TO WHAT THIS WORLD BELIEVES, THANK YOU JESUS THAT
I AM NO LONGER A FAN BUT A FOLLOWER!!
WHO ELSE IS WITH ME?

I am so humbled that God would choose a wretch like me to serve in the capacity of being the vessel to carry this message to multitudes.
Father, I thank You for your faithfulness, Your Righteousness of the every word You have spoken into my life, I thank You for giving me the strength, courage, guidance, and wisdom to understand the truth. I thank you for the GIFT OF LIFE you gave to me not based on anything of me but solely based on Your saving grace alone. You truly are all knowing and ever present in ALL circumstances. I praise Your name Dad! You are my King and I will serve you will all my soul until you call me home.
In the matchless name of Jesus Christ, AMEN.

Usually the Lord enables me to complete a video teaching on the subject of the week. I ask for forgiveness for not doing so this week. I have posted one that I think hits this subject perfectly.
In saying that, here’s what is going on with me. The Lord is taking me through a refiners fire. One that is so hot, I have to say I almost quit and gave up. One that has been so intense it has turned everything upside down in my life. In the last 10 days I have felt so lost, so weak and I actually have felt removed from God’s protection and guidance. As crazy as it sounds, this started when I began the teaching on fear. I have been out of prison 6 months now and I have wavered from what I told God I would do, I have focused on the money aspect of my book, I have neglected feeding off the Word of God and therefore have dishonored Him. I was on my face yesterday morning and the Lord manifested Himself to me and spoke – Mark 4:19 and then Isaiah 1:21-26. Mark 4:19 says “And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires of other things entering in, choke the word and it becomes unfruitful.” That is exactly what I have been doing. Then, in Isaiah it says v21- How the faithful city has become a harlot! It was full of justice; Righteousness lodged in it, But now murderers. (I haven’t loved my neighbor as I should) v22 – Your silver has become dross, Your wine mixed with water (my message has become diluted) v26 – “I will turn My hand against you, And thoroughly purge away your dross, (take me through a FIRE that will burn off that dross) I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning (bring back wisdom and knowledge) Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city.”
Through His grace and mercy He told me what He was going to do. Men, please know that NO MATTER THE BATTLE OR STRUGGLES we go through (as soldiers in HIS army) HE IS WITH US. As lost as I have felt these past days, it has caused me to search for Him even stronger, cry out to Him even LOUDER, drawn me closer to Him. So in closing, please realize that we all go through struggles but as Men of God – THE TASKS AHEAD OF US ARE NEVER AS GREAT AS THE POWER BEHIND US!
THANK YOU JESUS FOR YOUR GRACE, MERCY AND PATIENCE WITH ME THROUGH THIS FIRE, FORGIVE ME FOR FAILING YOU. FILL ME WITH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT AND PROVIDE ME WITH YOUR KNOWLEDGE, GUIDANCE AND WISDOM AND I HUMBLY ASK THAT YOU USE ME AS A VESSEL TO CONTINUE TO TAKE GROUND FOR YOUR MIGHTY KINGDOM.
