1.I am God’s sparrow and He has numbered
Every hair upon my head
My God is for me, standing beside me
Waiting to catch me if I fall
He’s always watching, And always waiting
With His powerful outstretched arms
He’s my Defender, He goes before me
He’s my peace in every storm.

REFRAIN:
My God is for me, I know that He loves me
I am protected by His blood
I am God’s sparrows, No weapon can prosper
I dwell in the safety of His arms

2.And when I’m weary, I know He’s mighty
He’s reaching out to me
His holy armor, Has all the power
That I will ever need
When I’m in trouble, God will protect me
He is my God Who Is There
Jehovah Shammah, My tower of safety
He is the rock on which I build.

REFRAIN

3.I am God’s sparrow, And He has numbered
Every hair upon my head
I know He’s able and He’s willing
To supply my every need
I am God’s sparrow and I am protected
By the power of His blood
I am God’s sparrow, I am God’s precious
I am the apple of His eye.

IN SEARCH OF PURELY ORGANIC REVIVAL: LUKE 1:17 PART 2
“He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Luke 1:17 NKJV

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,neither has entered into the heart of any man, those things which the Lord has prepared for those who love Him, BUT those things are revealed by the spirit,for the spirit searches all things,yea,even the deep things of God.” I Corinthians 2:9-10

REVIEW: PART 1 The Opening: We discussed briefly the announcement of the birth of John the Baptist in Luke 1:17. I noted how I have repeatedly heard this verse preached in regard to “revival” and “miracles, signs and wonders.”

And while I do certainly AGREE with that, IFFM will also discuss how EFFECTIVE WHOLE, ONGOING HEALTHY MATURE, APOSTOLIC MINISTRy and NATURAL RELATIONSHIPS will greatly affect and HASTEN the purely ORGANIC REVIVAL overall big process.

Please read PART 1 to see what we refer to as the 8 ONGOING BIBLE RELATIONSHIPS.
SILENT WORLD SHAKING EPIC RADICAL ENDURING BIG CHANGE

The event of John the Baptist’s birth signaled EPIC supernatural, EVERLASTING yet invisible change.

That big CHANGE was one of both natural thinking world as well as worldly kingdom shaking ORDER. IT was about to over the back then corrupt, deeply widespread,adulterous legalistic system.

This System was made up of the hireling temple high priest hood,who no longer descendants of the high priestly lineage of Jacob, but were descendants of Esau, as was King Herod of that time.

NOTE: This EPIC APOSTOLIC TIME PERIOD of worldwide, ETERNAL CHANGE came directly following the 400 silent years between the (somber warning) word for the high priests in the short book of Malachi and the start of the New Testament: Jesus time.

Thus whenever we read the Bible accounts of Jesus being Pharisee watched and spied on from afar,rumored about and plotted against, we duly note that these were the Religious Tough Unyielding (meaning dull of deep discernment and devoid of accurate pure leader PERCEPTION)

(The writer also draws a ministry comparison to the Compassion Fatigued equally dull and imperceptive Eli High Priesthood of I Samuel as well as the Revelation 2:1-7 New Testament over busy, many good religious deeds performing, once wonderful, church of the Lampstand of Ephesians) A LOT MORE ABOUT THAT at another appointed time.

THE LONG AWAITED MESSIAH, JESUS, FINALLY COMES

Right at the beginning of the New Testament, and included in each of the Gospels, we find the announcement story of the Baby Jesus.
We note that His birth comes following the birth of his cousin,who would later be well known as JOHN THE BAPTIST.

And,in the tight knit, ancient period of Time, where all trade roots and spiritual religious, eternal REALMS collided, (and where they continue to do so today), we find, very SMALLY,very SIMPLY and very very QUIETLY that two obscure Holy Spirit conceived infants are born…who would later on SHAKE THE KINGDOMS OF THE ENTIRE EARTH and MANKIND.

QUITE AN AMAZING CONFUSING BIG IRONY
WHY would Creator God choose to send two tiny apostolic MESSENGERS into a world that was fraught with major danger and all out major spiritual conflict?

WHY would Father God send seeming innocuous, every day, appearing SLEEPERS who would grow up simultaneously, then appear SUDDENLY on the national Jerusalem area wide SCENE?

The APOSTOLIC WHY’S till defy all Levitical Law, Greek wisdom and basic human LOGIC,not to forget passed down generational TRADITION.

Yet, after the Apostle Paul arrives,he then explains a MYSTERY OF GOD which oversteps what is both SEEN and UNSEEN, both LOGIC and HISTORICAL TRADITION…by “using a foolish things of this world to confuse the worldly wise” I Corinthians 1:27…which the LORD still uses today.

GOD uses HIS MYSTERIES to confound our BRAINS to apply Holy Spirit inner promptings to switch over to the invisible the(discerned/perceived) FAITH REAL REALM.

And the writer likens this to “INTERRUPTING EARTHLY TIME AND SPACE” to form a NEW APOSTOLIC COLONY…which in relationship, not religious performance form, is God’s accepting nuclear FAMILY.

And while the event of the apostolic Messiah’s birth was at first known only to a select few,later this silent Spiritual PENETRATION of the local RELIGIOUS ATMOSPHERE..by would be fully known WORLD WIDE and would spawn great controversy and INTENTIONALLY unsettle many a made up dull and imperceptive accuser, religious leader and lay mind.

TWO HEAVEN SENT MESSENGERS
The Setting for early pre church REVIVAL,HARVEST:

FIRST JOHN THE BAPTIST ARRIVES:
“He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Luke 1:17 NKJV

1. “HE will go before HIM” :John would precede,announce JESUS the MESSIAH.
2.He would be known to “have the spirit and power of Elijah” (I Kings 18-19 describes Elijah confronting the false religious temple high priests, who had been TOLERATED and ALLOWED by Israeli King Ahab and his demonic wife(daughter of a heathen Baal worshipping king) Queen Jezebel.(we don’t have time to cover that here)

BUT, we can get the PICTURE of the SPIRITUAL POWER(resembling Isaiah 11:2 all 7 of God’s Spirits) as well as foretelling the HOLY SPIRIT “dunamis power” coming to the Church in Acts.
3. The John the Baptist portion of God’s anointing would also affect RELATIONSHIPS: “turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children”

APOSTOLIC SELAH: AND while this means NATURAL generations,healing rifts of fathers and sons,mothers and daughters,the writer submits that it is also a sign of the SPIRITUAL MINISTRY GENERATIONS getting past each of their many legalistic, inherited, pet leader suspicious, dogmatic doctrines, in a new humility and James 3:17 ministry fruit,in Psalm 133,Ephesians 2:14-4 Corporate True “BRIDAL”Unity.

4. His coming “will turn the hearts of the disobedient to the wisdom of the just” (meaning first inside the Temple,but then anywhere outside, nationally,internationally) ….with the John the Baptist /Elijah Holy Spirit anointing, will have conviction, deep reconciliation,and with that salvation, as well as the return of the backslider.

5. “To make a people prepared for the Lord” (for his SOON COMING, akin to the Virgins with their oil lamps ready,as this was the First real SIGN of the COMING OF THE LORD, but in a prophetic End Time sense, the coming of the Lord to take His People to His Marriage Supper of the Lamb.)

THUS when John the Baptist entered TIME and SPACE..his coming embodied a major PARADIGM SHIFT and opened up a completely new DYNAMIC in the way God and humans would each have the opportunity to build an ongoing RELATIONSHIP:
1) apart from needing a 3rd party intermediary(being now allowed to having pray and hear God communicate back, personally, all, rather than having to go to a temple high priest, prophet as an intermediary)
2) AND after JOHN the MESSENGER announced the CHRIST,Jesus then preached, taught,healed but later paid the ultimate price for each one of us: HE died, taking all of our pain, sin for once and for ALL,and thereby shedding His own blood to take away the POWER of DEATH and eternal HELL. Following His bloody SACRIFICE, Christ rose again, setting His People FREE FOREVER from being held captive by TRADITION, LAW and accuser Pharisee LEGALISM.

FLASH BACK to Isaiah 11:3, the prophecy about the coming MESSIAH “He would delight himself in the fear of the Lord and not judge by the sight of his eyes nor make decisions based on what He heard.”
and see v.2 for the apostolic Messiah embodying each of His FATHER’S FLAMING ETERNAL DEEPLY MYSTERIOUS, SELF GOVERNING, LEADER EMPOWERING SPIRITS.

THEREFORE: The writer submits, that JESUS CHRIST’S VICTORY over LEGALISM and SPIRITUAL DEATH, also gave back the power of personal self control,Holy Spirit led EACH BORN AGAIN PERSONS SELF GOVERNMENT..and totally freed God’s true people from the power of ministry, persona, family, individual ACCUSATION.
(read context of Revelation 12 but we can only note here V. 11
“They over came HIM (meaning the Church overcame the ACCUSER) by the blood of the Lamb, the words of their testimony and they loved not their live unto death” (I later plan to dig through this in deep complete depth)

BECAUSE His Father’s CALLING was to build and enlarge HIS FAMILY, we regard this as CRUCIAL: getting back the power to self govern each of OUR own human hearts and lips. (as later James would write, “who can tame the tongue”)

THUS the apostolic REVELATION 12:11 SUPERNATURAL APPLIED POWER over anger,violence,abuse,animal behavior, ANY ACCUSATION, (gossip,tale bearing) in MINISTRY, HOME and REAL LIFE would serve as an invaluable,indeed LIFE PRESERVING tool for each and ever human leader and ministry lay.

IFFM CONCLUSION:
YES , the BIRTHS of the two COUSINS opened up an APPOINTED SPECIFIC ERA of EPIC PROPORTIONS…however, the MAJOR SIGNIFICANCE was not widely area wide pastorally /priestly accurately PERCEIVED or widely DISCERNED, noted, in Jesus and John’s local home town
LUKE 1:17 AND THE MISSING 400 OT-NT YEARS.

The writer guesses that every one of these (surely) ministry high priests were proven, highly knowledgeable, and most likely extra busy, with each having been in local high priest ministry for many many years. So by now, most of them already had their own their own solidly set agenda.

And it is most likely that by this time in their experienced lives, they each had NO doubt that they needed needed NOTHING or ANYONE more!

YET, former major Pharisee Apostle Paul, who’d had his own legalistic apostolic mind “CONSCIOUSNESS RAISED”by several direct personal encounters with the LIVING LORD, eventually penned, (again, as a foolish thing,meant to confound their worldy mixed up/made up hard set finite minds)

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,neither has entered into the heart of any man, those things which the Lord has prepared for those who love Him, BUT those things are revealed by the spirit,for the spirit searches all things,yea,even the deep things of God.” I Corinthians 2:9-10

THUS let us SELAH and fully contemplate this….and then make an first choice to REJOICE!

APOSTOLIC LUKE 1:17 AND THE SEARCH FOR PURELY ORGANIC PART 1
ALSO: there is a 3 Video Series on similar LUKE 1:17 REAL REVIVAL, REAL SERVANT LEADER RELATIONSHIPS, including “WHY I WON’T ATTEND ANY OVER BUSY CHURCH” and “WHY I BIBLE EQUIP ON MINISTRY SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY” March 5 www.encouragetelevision.org

The author will address LUKE 1:17 as a “Revival Harvest Ministry” SELAH THOUGHT PROVOKING APOSTOLIC KEY

“He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Luke 1:17 NKJV

MAIN POINT: All around the world, ministers quote this verse as they eagerly await, prepare for and mention “SIGNS AND WONDERS” “END TIME REVIVAL” and “THE SOON COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.”

APOSTOLIC MAIN POINT: The writer will leader DISCUSS “PREPARING OUR HEARTS FOR THE REVIAL” “BIG HARVEST” at will attempt to tie in the ministry importance of the 5 fold office senior ministry and in mentoring, what IFFM names as the 8 BIBLE RELATIONSHIPS in all of this.

MAIN LEADER POINT:THE IFFM ONGOING BIBLE RELATIONSHIPS(directed only within the context of the Christ following true believing community, as that is the IFFM calling):
IFFM DR TAVEAU D’ARCY LEADERSHIP names the 8 BIBLE ONGOING RELATIONSHIPS as: a human persons

1. Ongoing Relationship of him/her SELF and God

2.Ongoing Relationship between him/her SELF and him/her SELF

3.Ongoing Relationship between him/her SELF and married spouse (we examine this in a Bible believing Christian marriage)

4.Ongoing Relationship between him/her SELF and children,step children

5. Ongoing Relationships between him/her SELF and extended family, friends

6.Ongoing Relationship between him/her SELF and the local CHURCH

7.Ongoing Relationship between him/her SELF and his/her own local Community

8. Ongoing Relationship between him/her SELF and Institutions

NOTE:
(AND IFFM notes a very possible 9th relationship, which affects almost all of the above 8: the ongoing relationship between him/her SELF and MAKING MONEY (mammon)

CHRISTIAN MINISTER POINT: The writer will attempt to pin point productive MINISTRY THOUGHT in light of our heart preparation and what has been repeatedly discovered in mostly grass roots local level, popular culture, TV/media being very strongly affected “5 fold pioneering offices.”

Again, this is James 3:17 respectfully yielded, nondogmatic 5 fold leader SELAH.

APOSTOLIC LUKE 1:17 BIBLE VERSE IN CONTEXT:
Barren High Priest Zecharias and his wife Elizabeth (Elizabeth is Cousin of Mary, who is to be the mother ofJesus), have a surprise visit from an angelic messenger. The angel gives them the prophecy mentioned in Luke 1:17.

LUKE 1a: “HE”…their new coming son, who is to be named John, will arrive before “HIM” (The Messiah, Christ Jesus) and have the same type of “signs and wonders, miracle working supernatural power” as the I Kings Prophet Elijah (Elias).

(And nearly ever on fire for REVIVAL pioneering leader is saying YES! YES….BRING ON THOSE END TIME REVIVAL MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS!!”)

And while the writer definitely AFFIRMS this…she is going to paint much more of a MINISTRY RELATIONSHIP emphasis…however….

….TO BE CONTINUED

DON’T LET THEM SEE YOU SWEAT
© 2009 Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved

“ But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord GOD:

They shall enter into my sanctuary, and they shall come near to my table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep my charge.

And it shall come to pass, [that] when they enter in at the gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments; and no wool shall come upon them, whiles they minister in the gates of the inner court, and within.

They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves with any thing that causeth sweat. Ezekiel 44:15-18

WHEN THE TOP LEADER CHOOSES TO NOT TAKE A SABBATH BREAK APART

By refusing to take a personal Sabbath rest, apart from ministry, and/or by resisting God’s direction to cast all of our cares, burdens and worries onto Him, we leaders may not realize it, but we can give off the strong unpleasant perfume of ministry sweat.

Through continual overworking, remaining in overdrive, a Christian leader, pastor, can emanate bad VIBES which may give off the false impression that he/she does not really value Father’s Children.

Without knowing that this happens, running ourselves too ragged may make us appear to others as not sincere. And even though we truly place value on each one, by our being unwilling to obey God in taking a Sabbath break completely away, the ministry tiredness and SWEAT builds up and becomes too noticeable. It may be even more highly noticeable at home with our families.

Lest we forget:Wasn’t our original true leadership born in those long, deep times of prayer and seeking God? If that is so, then how can any of us ever trick ourselves into believing that God forsakes these long, lengthy, indepth All Alone Times with Him, once our ministry starts to expand and prosper?

By over working resembling automatons, we loose that spontaneous childlike creative ministry joy. Running from business meeting to business meeting to appointment, we find that our lives gradually from one born out of our personal RELATIONSHIP with Father God, into one that is more us ACHIEVING and automatically PERFORMING OUR OWN MINISTRY .

This starts to spill over into our private lives. Once we ever start to believe in ourselves more than we rely on the Father, it starts to suck us dry from our insides to our outsides. If we do not allow God to keep us in touch with our own human emotions, we eventually grow cold and compassionless.

Our deep wells of God’s tender mercy, His flowing empathy which is why God’s people(not to omit our spouses and loved ones) are drawn in the first place. And without GOD’S refreshing source of emotional reserves, each one of us could wind up feeling drained and emotionally, spiritually dry or even dangerously depleted. …. so that is why each one of us NEED to practice a Sabbath apart from “our” pastoral, leadership ministry.

If we do not follow God’s command (Isaiah 56, Isaiah 58) to take Sabbath time off to recreate, go to conferences, take a cell phone free, time away real vacation… and also devote ourselves to spending much time with ( only) HIM in the Secret Place, then those up close to us will start to SEE US BEING TO SWEAT.

The longer we allow ourselves to run ragged, the more the SEEING will turn into SMELLLING THE SWEAT.

Rather than radiating the pleasant sweet perfume of the joy, patience, favor and fragrance of the Lord. we could all wind up emanating the negative style of leadership /ministry STINKY SWEAT: brusqueness, condescending impatience, increasing irritability, or an completely exhausted aloof indifference to those God has placed around us.

Worse yet, a growing casual complacency to SIN. Soon we are in the HALT Leadership Condition; HUNRY, ANGRY, LONELY or TIRED..and then( just like in Luke, when Jesus was exhausted, tired after fasting 40 days)..the Devil arrives on the scene with offers of fast and easy BIG temptations!!

In Ezekiel 44, God directed the Old Testament priests to wear only garments of linen which ‘breathed” and did not retain,(which would then give off the odor of) human sweat.

Likewise, if we do not schedule times away in our own busy schedules to BREATHE and to truly be REFRESHED, then the air around us will be permeated with strong unpleasant odor (or some might call them, the strong negative VIBES) of personal and ministerial sweat.

Let us heed God’s admonition found in Song of Solomon to ,

”COME AWAY, MY BELOVED.”

Here are words from an old song: 
 “Breathe upon me, wind of God
Breathe up me, Spirit of the Lord, Make me hear the melodies of heaven.” -Anonymous

IFFM MINISTRIES DEFINITION OF BIBLE REPROVE*
Reproving the Disapproval of Modern Grass Roots Apostolic Bible Reproving

“There is a God in heaven who reveals secrets.” Daniel 2:28

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Tim 3:16-17

As this apostolic sent messenger, indeed unknown writer, has recently discovered entire ministry flocks which refuse to self introspect,to accept any personal responsibility… and prefer ONLY The BLESS ME, MY FOUR( AND HARDLY ANYBODY) MORE” select Bible verses. (thus we’re perceiving, avoiding, not willing to yield to, even understand how supremely important they are, and as they pertain to

1) THE AWESOME REVERENTIAL ABIDING FEAR OF THE LORD in 5 fold offices

2) HELP PRESERVE HARMONY IN ONGOING BIBLE RELATIONSHIPS

3) AND to ASSIST EACH SENIOR MINISTER, LAY to be “thoroughly FURNISHED” (v. 17) when they observe, obey and submit to all of this. (which is great irony as most of these ALL have very small ministries, tiny churches, over work and make their spouses over work too..how strange!!)

We have literally found some who have HIDDEN (literally) AVOIDED, repeatedly DUCKED from being up front, even respectfully Matthew 18:15-18 Confronted…and these in ministry HIGH 5 fold senior office!!

Instead, at each point when I tried personally to rise up to CONFRONT directly (rather not to accuse, complain or murmur, yield to gossip) behind any of their leadership (immature) backs…..it was conveyed to me by their method of comporting themselves, hiding, ducking, and (a few) quoting a well known Bible promise to their own advantage…to avoid being up front HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

Here is what a few of these misquoted, when I said, “I want to get you to return my 88 FULL SIZE KEY DIGITAL STUDIO PIANO” and another time “I WANT YOU TO GIVE ME BACK THE NEW MINISTRY LAP TOP” “PC, VIDEO CAM” and “I WANT TO CONFRONT YOU ABOUT LETTING THAT GIRL LIVE WITH YOU.”

They would react AGHAST and begin to quote, “BUT I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS”…

…..as if that dismissed them from being accountable to return an item fradulently taken OR to be willing to admit that IN THE NEW TESTAMENT living in fornication is still a disqualification for SENIOR/JUNIOR/HELPS MINISTRY..and should be quickly abandoned as well as repented from.
NOTE: I Corinthians 5:11, http://biblehub.com/1_corinthians/5-11.htm

…Indeed tables were turned on me as the accusation was hurled “YOU are NOT being SWEET” (as in NOT SWEET “like Baby Jesus Meek and Mild type of Sweet).

And oddly, these “five fold qualified middle aged elder leader,” each MISPERCEIVED that they were in any way to blame and in fact accuser BLAME SHIFTED BACK To me as if I was EVIL simply for rising up and trying to hold them ACCOUNTABLE!! (Note: 3 completely different charismatic ministry leader groups, and over period of 3-5 years)

Again, not only was I misperceived as “BEING IN SIN, ACCUSATORY and NOT FORGIVING “You have baggage” (NOTE: after the 3 time I understood that is a clever manipulator’s method to confuse, to take the heat off themselves, to give them more time to DUCK AND AVOID guilt…..but they repeatedly stated, implied this AS they continued to proceed to continue to duck, hide and avoid (indeed MANIPULATION, SLICK WILLY DEEP SOUTHWEST LEADERSHIP STYLE?**

(NOTE http://www.adventuresinblameshifting.net was spawned directly from the deep southwest 5 fold office/including seeking qualified helps/ super long, suffering experience)

ASIDE NOTE: this was all MALES, yet for some nonpure hearted reason, it is now duly noted that ( conveniently?) MINISTRY LEADER FEMALES get labeled WITCHES, CONTROLLERS, QUEEN JEZEBELS….

BIG LEADER QUESTION:

Q. WHAT actually IS or IS NOT truly ” JEZEBELLIAN, WITCHCRAFT” in THIS type of incidence?(be it done by male OR female perpetrator)

1.”Rebellion is a the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is as the sin of iniquity and idolatry” I Samuel 17:11

Therefore: Rebellion against God’s Holy Word then may be discerned as WITCHCRAFT..especially when there is the use of power plays, avoiding, ducking and using the Word of God LEGALISTICALLY just to get YOUR OWN WAY.

2. So not being “easily entreated” James 3:17, and then Ducking, Avoiding Bible confrontation is in rebellion to Matthew 18:15-18, JAMES 3:17, Whole book of Ephesians, Ephesians 5:21, and Proverbs 1:7 (just for starters)

…..ALSO:I never got the any of the high priced ministry items returned…nor by their higher up oversights.

I was instead DUCKED, AVOIDED and ACCUSER/BLAME SHIFTED as “the mean spirited FEMALE troublemaker” even in the next 3-4 higher ministry chain of command levels.

AND it was also during this time that I (for my very first time ever) began to note the deep south ministry giant regional chauvinism, even misogyny.

That is something I shall delve into later….as MY SENIOR PASTOR FATHER, RELATIVES, MALES BOARD, FRIENDS IN MINISTRY and WHEN I WAS OUT GUEST SPEAKING never every viewed me as a STEREOTYPE and tried to rationalize that hiding to avoid Matthew 18:16 RESPECTFUL, HONORABLE, MINISTRY PROFESSIONAL BIBLE YIELDED PROTOCOL was evidently OK as the persons swindled was “JUST ANOTHER OVERLY EMOTIONAL WEAK WILLED LITTLE WOMAN.”

WHICH was a giant WAKE UP CALL..thus I made the choice to STUDY THE BIBLE in Noble Berean Leader Mature Fashion to see HOW they could be so manipulative, to twist God’s Holy WORD to their own advantage…(in order to get more GAIN).

I had already learned to rise up to practice upfront confrontation, after God revealed his promise to ”give the nations” to whomever was willing to rise up, to stand up to CONFRONT a Revelation 2: JEZEBEL CONTROLLER.

This is God’s BLESSING on the LAMP STAND LEADER, SENIOR OFFICE for being FEARLESS and not a HUMAN PLEASER.

And while this JEZEBEL is rumored about in local grass roots ministry urban legends as a PAINTED SEDUCTIVE WITCHY WOMAN, the religious gender stereotypes are simply just that. AND in Church of Thyatira, God rebukes the MALE LAMP STAND LEADER for not being WILLING to rise up (“to human up”) to set her down.

And if we want to still keep our own pet ministry leader accuser stereotypes, then from Genesis to Revelation whenever the ACCUSER is mentioned, it is ALWAYS, ONLY mentioned in the gender of a MAN.

Enough is Enough Selah.
It also occurred to me that they were all REPROBATE, as they gave spiritual FRUIT of being senior/minister ENTITLED but also of each one regarding THEMSELVES as ABOVE needing to obey, to submit to, to yield to the WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD.

Then I went online to see what the definition of REPROVE was in the Miriam Webster Dictionary. (after all the Lord has always used national, world wide Bible REPROVERS who were not always POPULAR with the at ease, all knowing, “we have arrived” (arrogant) spiritual need to be popular crowd.

SOME HISTORICAL REPROVERS:

Reverend Jonathan “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” Edwards

German “95 Theses on the Wittenberg Door” Reformer Martin Luther

Civil Reformer Reverend Martin Luther King

Civil, Moral Reformer “No More At the Back of the Rascist Bus” Rosa Parks

And very many many more….

No, not a one of these was 100 percent well loved, well regarded or even POPULAR back in their day.
AND TODAY it appears some in the Grass Roots worship/ministry PC Popular Culture would even accuse JESUS CHRIST if he boldly walked into the local Christ Following Assembly today and proceeded to toss over a few of the T shirt money maker, CD Tables.

NO, this Mentally Tough Religious All Knowing Bunch would BLAME Jesus for “having the sin of unforgiveness against the local Pharisee High Priests” and would probably spread the rumor around that Jesus had “Big Baggage” and needed to enroll in their 10 week GET RID OF BITTER ROOTS CLASS.

No, it’s NOT either our spiritual Daddy’s OR our spiritual Mama’s local 5 fold office Grass Roots Media Affected Culture.

CURIOUS ABOUT THE DEFINITION OF “REPROVE”

Frankly, it served to make me get out both my DICTIONARY (and my trusty Holy Spirit Bible Sword) to see what they were all so either IN DENIAL OR AFRAID OF!!

MIRIAM WEBSTER DICTIONARY: REPROVE

re·prove verb \ri-ˈprüv\

re·provedre·prov·ing16

SO, in closing, we can only humble each one of OUR OWN HUMAN, FALLIBLE HEARTS and PRAY for the TRUTH which penetrates through DULL OF DISCERNING, CALLOUS, ALL WISE, BORN AGAIN EQYPTIAN (LIVING IN DENILE) leader, pastor, rising minister, HEARTS.

And then as pure hearted Christ Follower Leaders, prayerfully discern from the LORD as to “WHEN TO RISE UP AND TO SPEAK UP” and when to “LAY LOW, TURN THE OTHER CHEEK and effectively SHUT UP.”

Finally:

“And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” 2 Timothy 2:24-26

This is the ministry Bible verse regarding HUMILITY with BALANCE of UP FRONT God’s Tough Love and Ministry Tender hearted Sweet Baby Jesus Agape Love (“God’s People who oppose themselves” AKA: The MANY in church and outside of it 2 Timothy 2:24-26 Religious Tough Customers.)

Mighty Blessings!
