It's Black Friday, Holiday, and Flash-Sales Season!  Don't be the entrepreneur who drops an offer and says, "Oh, shoot, nobody bought."  People will see tons of stuff in their inboxes for Black Friday and the holidays. So you could have the best offer in the world – and if people don't see it, they're not going to buy it.  In this episode, I will give you a few key things to pay attention to and ensure that your offer gets seen by people who will buy, even if they're barraged by your competitors.  ▶️ TWO of my Favorite WAYS to Package High-End Services with Shameca Tankerson. Key points discussed in this episode:  Learn how to do flash sales in a way that positions you as an authority and a power player who doesn't diminish your credibility.  ✔️ Rule #1: It has to be a super awesome offer. Offer something people desire, and that really motivates them. You can't just grab your old courses, throw them all in a bundle, and sell them.  ✔️ Bundle two to three programs together that would be a higher investment than what you're going to put them together for when you purchase them separately. An 80 to 90% savings is a good place to start if you're looking at pricing. This gives so much more value than what you ask in payment. ✔️Make sure you're using a highly-leveraged product to not create more work for yourself. This will allow you to still deliver on the other clients who are paying to work with you.  ✔️ When people purchase, bonus them with a Q&A call or a conversion opportunity for you. They get to know you more by spending a little time with you on Q&A. They will see you helping other people, even if they never open the courses or products they buy. They still get some value out of it, which will likely lead them to have a higher potential for an upsell.   ✔️ Ensure that you have multiple touchpoints with your prospective clients. You could have four to six touchpoints in a day, just reminding people that the offer is there. It can be through Messenger, emails, your Facebook page, going live, or posting. Multiple touchpoints are necessary because busy people can miss the offer.   ✔️ The honest truth: people buy when they're ready to buy. People are used to being sold to during holidays, but for some reason, we are buying into this thought pattern that we should be quiet in our businesses. Refrain from letting that old belief and mediocre mindset stop you from showing up and being able to provide somebody with something that will support them, but also selling your stuff and making money.  ✔️ Shift from being a tired and frustrated overachiever to a badass power player who commands five-figure fees. So many coaching service providers need help to pull people across the finish line to buy from them. Remember, there are prospects you want to leave alone and buyers you want your content to focus on.  Make that easy sale at the high-end level POSSIBLE for you, and I can teach you HOW. You never have to chase after payments or contracts ever again. Become that Power Player you aim to be! ************************************************************ ACCESS My Entire Black Friday/Flash Sale Swipe File by joining the VIP LIST ⇒ Comment "VIP" ———————————————————————————————— Loved this episode?

Rayna Neises, ACC, host, reflects on her interview last week with Angie Rischpater (Episode 143). Angie is a physical therapist and she shared how, as a caregiver, you can be an observer or a detective to help your loved one. Instead of swooping in and taking, you can just support. Rayna continues with the topic offering the following suggestions:[1:32] Deal with the problem and not the symptom by digging down and finding the root of the problem.[3:29] Steps to becoming a good observer:[3:45] Understand the difference between observing and looking[4:15] Be mindful of your surroundings and practice[5:21] Pay attention to the details[6:29] Refrain from judgment[7:18] Slow down[8:00] Let the person you are caring for do what they can do.[8:52] The learner (growth) vs. the judger (fixed) mindset.[11:45] Learning to stay in the learner mindset can change how we interact with our loved one and how we support them.[13:45] Check out Marilee Adams' book, “Change Your Questions. Change Your Life” and visit inquiryinstitute.com for a free download of the Choice Map.[14:04] This episode has been brought to you by Content Magazine, a quarterly electronic magazine designed to help you find God in your caregiving season, coming in January 2023.

Bride Rewarded; Factious and Apostates Judged (13) (Audio) David Eells - 11/6/22 3 out of 4 Will Fall Away Claire Pienaar - 10/26/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was watching three different people in bathroom stalls. (As we will see, these three individuals represent the three out of four in the parable of the sower that fell away. Claire represents a corporate body of the one out of the four that bore fruit 30, 60, and 100 fold. Mat. 13:8  and others fell upon the good ground, and yielded fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Jesus' interpretation: 23 And he that was sown upon the good ground, this is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; who verily beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.) These stalls were adjacent to a communal dining hall where there was a large wooden table and wooden chairs. (The bathroom stalls represent each believer's call to get rid of the waste of the old man. The communal dining hall with large wooden table represents the Body of Christ coming together to feast on the Word, by resting on the works of the Cross). (Riaan: The bathroom stalls not only represent a place where you are supposed to get rid of all fleshly waste, but they can also represent cubicles of self-works, like working in an office). (Gal. 5:4 Ye are severed from Christ, ye who would be justified by the law; ye are fallen away from grace.) This area looked like a rehab center. (The rehab center represents the rehabilitation process of the washing of water with the Word which delivers us from our fleshly idols and sinful addictions.) It appeared to me that these people were in different stages of “sanctification” or rehab. (There are many stages of sanctification after our initial salvation experience, but if we don't endure in our trials until the end we won't keep our salvation. Mat. 10:22 ...he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.) It looked like the first one (Ella) had overcome the initial addiction or sins and replaced it with something else. (The flesh is always looking for something to hang onto so that it can live. Many times we get rid of one fleshly vice only to find something else to entertain our flesh and allow it to keep on controlling us. Mat. 13:3-4, ...Behold, the sower went forth to sow; 4 and as he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the birds came and devoured them. Jesus' interpretation: Mat. 13:18-19 ...When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the evil one , and snatcheth away that which hath been sown in his heart. This is he that was sown by the way side. ) The second one (Daniel) was still struggling with his initial addictions or sins. (These are the people with the “once saved always saved" false doctrine. They don't ever receive the power to overcome their initial sins because they only believe that your are perfected when you die and go to heaven. Mat. 13:5-6,20-21  and others fell upon the rocky places, where they had not much earth: and straightway they sprang up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6 and when the sun was risen, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away… Jesus' interpretation: 20 And he that was sown upon the rocky places, this is he that heareth the word, and straightway with joy receiveth it; 21 yet hath he not root in himself, but endureth for a while; and when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, straightway he stumbleth. ) The last one (Linda) was completely given over to many other sins because she failed to recognize them as sin in the first place.  Mat. 13:7  And others fell upon the thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked them. Jesus' interpretation: 22 And he that was sown among the thorns, this is he that heareth the word; and the care of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.) The first person's name was Ella (In Hebrew this name means “goddess”, and in German it means “Other” or “Foreign”). (These worship a false Jesus and receive false seed that bears fruit that doesn't look like the Father. Hos. 5:7 They have dealt treacherously against Jehovah; for they have borne strange children: now shall the new moon devour them with their fields.) Ella was preoccupied with her nails. She used to be an addict, but now she was addicted to doing her nails. (Riaan: [Keratin is dead cells that make up the fibrous structural protein of our nails.] Being pre-occupied with nails represent dwelling on the works of dead flesh.) I had flash visions of her doing her nails everywhere: In the car, with her mom, in the shower, at work. She wasn't trying to cut off her nails and keep them short and neat. She had a preoccupation with false nails, and making her nails appear more beautiful than is naturally or humanly possible. (This represents the vain works of the flesh that make people look good outwardly to others.) When I went into her stall, I showed her my own bare nails and said, “Look, it really doesn't look that bad”. She smiled weakly but could not commit to changing her habits. (1Co. 1:18 For the word of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us who are saved it is the power of God.) I walked into the next stall and the person's name was Daniel. (This name means “God is my judge”). (John 8:15-16,23-24 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. 16 Yea and if I judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me… 23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for except ye believe that I am he , ye shall die in your sins.) He was a recovering drug addict, like Ella. (These “drug addictions” represent, “the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches.”) He had showered, and was now praying, and he was dressed in a big grey bathrobe. (As we will see, he had been washed by the water of the Word but was still clothed in death because of his unbelief.) He was saying that he knows God can take it away from him and was pleading with God. I told him that it had already been taken care of at the cross 2000 years ago. It was finished. (He likely represents those who lack faith in the completed works of the cross). (The condition of salvation is that you must believe. Rom. 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth...) He asked me if I had ever dealt with addiction and I said “yes” because I've dealt with sin, and that is the same thing. Daniel then put the gown on me, wanting me to join him in this dark comfortable misery, but I said, “Oh no thank you!” and put the gown back on him and walked out of his stall. (Misery loves company and we can not allow others to drag us down with their evil hearts of unbelief.) (Riaan: This one was washed clean initially, accepting the cleansing power of God but then went back to what is “comfortable” for the flesh and covered the “cleanness” with darkness.) The third stall belonged to a person named Linda. (Her name means beautiful serpent.) Linda was not in the stall, but was, instead, walking between the dining table and a cupboard, packing things in a bag. (Packing things in a bag represents carrying a lot of “baggage from the past” i.e. bitterness, resentment, unforgiveness and guilt.) She used angry and biting tones in response to all my questions about her addiction: First denying, then blaming, then getting angry. I asked her, “Why are you so hurt? Who hurt you?” And she replied, “His name is Davis, and he really hurt me." (Davis means “son of David”). (Riaan: She represents faction [and anger towards God].)... I did what I knew was wrong to please him, and now he's left me. I can't understand it” (This represents a misunderstanding of what is pleasing to God because of ignorance of His Word. God's presence leaves us when we grieve His Holy Spirit.)  ... I wanted to hug her, as I knew she needed much love. She used profanity out of sheer frustration at her own weakness and lack of good character. She was remorseful but did not know how to be freed from this sin. (Again this third one represents those in Mat. 13:22 And he that was sown among the thorns, this is he that heareth the word; and the care of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.) Then I woke up. I asked the Lord for a verse by faith at random for this dream, and I received John 1:1, (in context 1,4-5) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ...4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not. I asked the Lord for another word by faith at random to help understand this dream. I received Isaiah 5:3, (in context 1-6)  ... My wellbeloved had a vineyard in a very fruitful hill: 2 and he digged it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also hewed out a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes. 3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard. 4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? 5 And now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; I will break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: 6 and I will lay it waste; it shall not be pruned nor hoed; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.     Very Few Will Climb Mt. Zion Samuel Fire - 10/25/22 (David's notes in red) I saw Tiannah and I as little children running on this hiking trail. We ran casually and gracefully on this trail. It went through this big forest and ended at the top of a mountain. (This trail represents the straight and narrow path that leads up to the top of Mt. Zion, the New Jerusalem Bride.) While on the track we ran through forests and crossed rivers by jumping on rocks. (The rocks represent our Rock of salvation, Jesus, on whom we stand to keep us from being swept away by the current of the curse represented by the river waters.) There were difficult areas to get through but some were easier. We were acting very playful and joyful, with no fear or worry, like simple-minded, young children. (Rom. 16:19  For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I rejoice therefore over you: but I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple unto that which is evil.) On this trail, we came across all different types of other people, on all different sections of the trail. We were kind to all of them, but they didn't want to go any further up on the trail. (These people are similar to the different people in Claire's dream above. They are all on the "salvation trail" but at some point in their walk they find a comfortable spot and decide that they don't want to go any further, since this leads to “death to self.") Some of the people kept trying to get us to stay with them but we didn't want to. (As in Claire's dream above, misery and complacency loves company and these people will try to derail your journey of sanctification and pull you down with them. Gal. 5:7 Ye were running well; who hindered you that ye should not obey the truth?) We just wanted to keep running along the trail, climbing up the mountain. (1Co 9:24  Know ye not that they that run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? Even so run; that ye may attain.) We came to this open park area where I saw a group of people... They were all stopped and chatting with each other; having a picnic. They were acting very comfortable and relaxed, as if they thought that was the end of the trail and that they don't need to go any further. We just ... kept running on the trail, and in the distance behind us, we heard them telling us to ‘Stop running', ‘That's crazy', ‘That's dangerous' ‘Whoa! I wouldn't do that!' etc. (This represents apostate Christians who are in dead religion and they don't see a need for perpetual sanctification. They think the Bride is a fanatic and excessive like in Sos 5:9 What is thy beloved more than another beloved, O thou fairest among women? What is thy beloved more than another beloved, That thou dost so adjure us?) At one spot there was another couple... They told us that we are crazy for wanting to keep climbing up the mountain and that it is too dangerous for us to keep running on the trail. We just wanted to keep running and we said to them “Come with us!” but they didn't want to come, they were comfortable where they were. (Continuing in sanctification is uncomfortable to the “old man”.) So, we kept on going and eventually got to the top of the mountain, where there was this beautiful waterfall. (The Bride has rivers of living water flowing out from her. John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water.)  While at the top, we went to one side of a cliff and looked down. We saw from far away the last couple that we had met. We yelled out to them, “Come up here!” But they didn't say anything, they only shook their heads to say ‘no'. (Rom. 10:21 ...All the day long did I spread out my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.) Then the scene changed and Tiannah, our son David, and I were much older than we are in real life. (Representing that we and our fruit, of Christ in us, has matured through the sanctification process.) All 3 of us were now muscular, more mature and were equipped with everything we needed: a backpack, food, water and tools. We had everything needed to survive in a wilderness. We were still on top of the mountain but were equipped to walk back down the trail again that we had walked as children. (The Bride has gone through her trials and is now strong, mature, prepared, and equipped with the Word that she has put down into her heart to minister to others during the Tribulation.) We went again to the cliff  and looked down and saw that the last couple were still standing there; not having moved at all. We set up a zip line and swung down to where they were. (The zip line represents the supernatural anointing that the Man-child will receive to bring the good news of the gospel to those in tribulation. But as we will see, just as in Jesus' day, many will not have eyes to recognize the Man-child or their reformation in the Tribulation.) We were encouraging them to come up the mountain, [of sanctification] and speaking to them with pure love, mercy and grace to encourage them to take the next step. We gave them some bread. We spoke with scripture so simply and gently. They took a few more steps but they didn't want to go any further than that. We gave them everything that they would accept, but when they didn't want to take any more steps, we kept walking back down the trail to find others. We found more people that we had previously seen on the trail, some still in the same spot where we last saw them and some had walked a little further up the trail but others were further back than before. (Mark 4:24-25 ...Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete it shall be measured unto you; and more shall be given unto you. 25 For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken away even that which he hath.) We gave one of the groups of people we saw some food and water and spoke about The Lord with them and lead them across a river until they didn't want to walk any further. Some other people followed us for a while, others only moved a little bit further and some didn't want to move at all. After we spoke to everyone that we found we went back up the mountain to the top. (The old saying is so true, "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink.” Psa. 32:9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding; Whose trappings must be bit and bridle to hold them in, Else they will not come near unto thee.)     Apostates are Climbing the Wrong Mountain Claire Pienaar - 10/26/22 (David's notes in red) I had a quick vision of a couple named Eddie and Andie. (Eddie means “wealthy friend”. He likely represents those who are strong in the world. James 4:4 Ye adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore would be a friend of the world maketh himself an enemy of God. (Mat. 19:23 And Jesus said unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven.) (Andie means “man-like” and represents the Jezebel daughters of the Harlot, as we will see.) They were climbing a very rocky, desolate mountain. It had broken branches, dead tree stumps and many rocky and craggy places. Nothing green grew on this mountain. (This could represent the wilderness tribulation [that many apostate Christians will have to go through].) (Riaan: This particular mountain represents works of the flesh [which separate us from Christ as in Gal. 5:4.].) (John 15:1-2,5-6 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh it away: … 5  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for apart from me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. Primarily, we abide in Him by faith that we were crucified with Christ and He now lives in us. This faith entitles us to power from God to bear fruit.) They were dressed in what looked like the exact same wedding attire Riaan and I wore for our wedding, except Andie's dress was not pure white, as mine had been, but an 'off white' color. (Claire represents the Bride because her name means “brilliant” and the Bride's garments are bright and pure as is spoken of in Rev. 19:8 And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. This 'off white' wedding dress represents those who have yet to attain to a 'leukos' garment like in Rev. 19:14 And the armies which are in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and pure. Both of these groups have a lesser garment than the Bride.) (Sometimes those walking in the flesh look more pious than they really are. 1Sa. 16:7, ... Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature... for Jehovah seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but Jehovah looketh on the heart.)   She was holding a small bouquet. (This represents branches being cut off. It makes a nice bouquet initially, but we want to be attached to the “vine”, otherwise we will wither and die. John 15:6  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.) They looked dishevelled, and dirty from climbing. Ed was slightly further along, but he was not waiting for his bride and he had a scowl on his face. Andie looked very fearful of falling and they both looked laser focused on not falling. Andie's wedding dress was torn at the bottom. I looked down at her feet and saw she had the finest, black, fancy shoes on, with little diamond gems. The soles were red though, and I heard the words, “Trampling the blood of the saints.” (Ed represents those distracted with worldly riches and Andie represents the “manly” Jezebel spirit who is a daughter of the Harlot. These types are leavened to the Body and they are climbing the wrong mountain that produces no fruit.) Rev 17:5 and upon her forehead a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of the Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I wondered with a great wonder.). I asked the Lord for a word by faith at random for this dream, and received John 5:37, (in context 37-40)  And the Father that sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form. 38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he sent, him ye believe not. 39 Ye search the scriptures, because ye think that in them ye have eternal life; and these are they which bear witness of me; 40 and ye will not come to me, that ye may have life.     Moving to the New House with the David's   Claire Pienaar 11/2/22 (David's notes in red) I had two dreams that followed one another and seem to be connected. Dream #1: I dreamed that I was asleep and dreaming that David Eells was packing up his house and moving, but my family was not there yet. I was distraught as I needed to be where he was. In the dream I woke up and scheduled a call with him, and we chatted. David was very excited. Then I was transported through Zoom to David's house. He told me that a factious man had sold the house that UBM was in, and they needed to be out by Wednesday morning. (The factious man represents the house of faction. This means their time of oppressing and slandering us is almost up and their judgment comes.) (This was a sly, underhanded move it seems, from David's reaction of excitement and quick movements in the dream, initially. (It's good for us to be out of the faction's influence and we are excited that our testing is over.) But finding a new home was no challenge for David and his friends.) I received by faith at random Zec 14:14 (In context, 10-14) And it shall come to pass in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem. ...11  And men shall dwell therein, and there shall be no more curse; but Jerusalem shall dwell safely. ... 13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from Jehovah shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor. (God will turn our factious enemies against each other as with Gideon and Jehoshaphat. And they will no more harass us as in the dream.) 14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the nations round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.  (We will plunder the factious in Church and State and will have our new houses.) In the dream, it was Monday afternoon. (From Monday to Wednesday is very quick. We will be “out by Wednesday”). David had many sweet people living with him: A few that I remember were: An old lady with a Greek name that I cannot remember, as well as Michael and Eve. (David represents the David Man-child reformers whom "the Bride" represented by Eve and those "who are like God" represented by Michael, dwell with.) Eve, as a type of the Bride, lived in a separate loft, and she had some people she was helping to move, although they were moving to a different place. These people were still in the world, but she was acting in faith and being patient with them, and it seemed they were maturing right before my eyes. Their place would be somewhere between the old house and the new house. (Meaning, they will not yet be escaping tribulations.) It was amazing to watch how efficiently these people got rid of stuff (baggage) and how the house they were in cleared out supernaturally. It wasn't cluttered to begin with, but by the time I walked to Eve's portion of the house and back to where David was, everything had been cleared or taken away. (Representing that God will do a quick work.) The Greek lady, especially, seemed very helpful and cheerful (I think she represents the "Good News" that David preaches and teaches, since it was written in the Greek). David was saying that the new home was smaller but nicer and “all white”. (This new spiritual house has been delivered from the factious apostates and the unity and peace is greater.) The new home could not have as many people in the house as the old house did, but these good people could rent or purchase homes very close to David. (These new personal homes are built together in unity as in Eph. 2:21 in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord.) All those homes were white too. He was telling me how it had worked out perfectly. It was a 3-hr drive to the new home, and David said the house was “perfectly white”. (Notice: We arrive at the third hour!! Mar 15:25  And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. Act 2:15  For these are not drunken, as ye suppose; seeing it is but the third hour of the day. [filled with the Holy Spirit]) I had a vision of this house then, and it was picture perfect. Not flashy, but more like a large cottage. It was perfect. It seemed closer than a 3-hr trip to me. (It is very close) I told David I am relying on God solely for us to come over there. Then he said, “You can buy the house next to me”. And I said, “David, I have no money. Even if I did, God would have to multiply everything so I could live there”. David laughed and said, “And He will”. I laughed too, in agreement. (Amen!! Father will be our provider!) I asked the Lord for a verse by faith at random for this portion of the dream, and by faith at random I received 2Ti. 1:13: Hold the pattern of sound words which thou hast heard from me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. (i.e. Confess your needs are received. “Hold fast the confession of your hope that it waver not, for He is faithful that promised.”)     We Must Fix Our Vehicles First Claire Pienaar - 11/2/22 (David's notes in red) Dream #2: I woke up out of the previous dream and immediately dreamed I was with Riaan in our house, although this house looked different to the current one we live in. He needed to get the van's axle fixed and we took it in to mechanics that were a 3-hr drive away. (The same third hour of crucifixion and filling with the Spirit will fix the Van.) Before we left for the mechanic, I had lamb shanks cooking in my slow cooker. (Eating the legs represents partaking of the walk of the Passover Lamb, Jesus. This was the last meal before the Tribulation wilderness.)  This was going to be the last meal in our old home with our children. All the boxes were packed to go. So we drove to the mechanic's shop. When we got there, they said, “Nah mate, it's all good. She'll be ‘right'!” (Aussie slang for “there's no problem here”). (As we will see, the mechanics represent preachers who lower the bar so that everybody is okay.) On the way in the car to the mechanic, Riaan said to me, “I left the pot on, don't tell my sister”. I was so upset, not because of fear, but because he thought it was funny. I said that we need to get home as it could cause a fire, as the pot could not be on for so long. (This is flawed thinking in my dream because my slow cooker can be on for longer than 6 hours and everything would be a-ok). (The Lamb can be on the fire for as long as it takes for us to come to crucifixion and resurrection.)  I only had his mother on my phone to call, but she was at a beach holiday and could not go help. (The apostate mother is resting in the world and will be no help to anyone to arrive at Crucifixion and Anointing.)   When we got home, the lamb shanks were all slushy, but I was happy our home and kids were safe. (We must be crucified until our legs are “slushy” and Christ's walk in us is strong.) Then, in the dream, I went to bed and during the night Riaan tossed and turned and got up. I eventually woke up and went to where he was. He  had been wringing his eyes and was wearing his orange mine clothing (Representing a warning). He was so frazzled about the van. It seemed he had received a revelation about the van not being right while sleeping. He said, I could roll this car on the way to the airport and kill us all. It is so unstable”. (He seemed gravely concerned about doing anything that could harm us). (Our mode of operation must be stable so that we can make it to the airport representing mounting up to heavenly places in Christ.) He was really upset with the Australian mechanics and that they'd lied to him, because the van was not right at all. However, the fault was truly with the van, and he knew that. ...I said to him soothingly, “We can drive in it until we get to the airport. (It wont be necessary when you rise into heavenly places.)  But let's trade it in or scrap it and we don't care what we drive in afterwards.”... We got the children ready and prayed over the car that it would be safe until we got to the airport. ... And then I woke up.       A House Fitly Framed Together Gabby Dibble - 10/30/22 (David's notes in red) I had this dream where there was a giant honeycomb in the sky. I was at my parents home (familiar place) with a sister Egzona and other disciples. I walked outside to look at the sky, knowing something was there. As I looked I saw an open honeycomb. The honeycomb then zoomed in and I could see there were people standing in each cell (the different sections). (A honeycomb could represent many houses joined together into one as a holy temple in the Lord as Ephesians speaks of: Eph 2:20-22 being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone; 21 in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord; 22 in whom ye also are builded together for a habitation of God in the Spirit. We just had a dream from Claire that we were moving to small houses in a tight group all next to one another.) There was one person per cell and there was motion. They continued to move to different cells. When I first saw the honeycomb about 60% of the honeycomb was filled, then there were less people (Representing the faction removing themselves), then more people were added (Representing the revival bringing those who received the crowns that the faction lost.) and soon within a few moments it was completely filled.  I then saw a man and a women underneath the honeycomb, holding hands with someone inside to stay connected. (The faction will have someone inside as a spy. It could be someone spying on our emails.) They were preventing more people from coming in, kicking them down yet they had a smile plastered on their face. (Rom 16:17  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which ye learned: and turn away from them. 18  For they that are such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by their smooth and fair speech they beguile the hearts of the innocent.  As I was seeing this in my dream I was wondering if this represented the true body of Christ or something else. (Those in the honeycomb are the true body of Christ but the traitors who leave are the Judas', sons of perdition, betraying the true Body. They have tried to turn many away from the Gospel.) My vision then flashes to something else: I see men going to war in water with Jesus symbols around them (don't remember what they looked like whether it was crosses or something else. (Imposters playing Christians.)  This was showing two types of people. They looked like tribes as the men fighting had old weapons such as sticks or something related and were only wearing a loin cloth. Many of the men in charge were visibly older (grey hair, bit of a belly, etc.). (The leftists have already done false flags impersonating Christians in a negative light for the leftist news media like on Jan 6th.) I'm now back in the house and I'm standing in front of a tv with others. The government and civilians were going downhill. I'm not political anymore but on the news it showed the effects of having the democrats rule, only they were in charge at this point. Several (maybe 3 or 4) negative effects were being shown on the news.  (The declass is beginning to come out on all the destruction the democrats have brought to our country and the world. At this point they appear to be in charge but it is not so.)   One example I remember is the news reporter was standing with a mic in his hand dumbfounded because there was a fire going on for several days (3 or 4) that they couldn't put out. (The fire is the chaos, anarchy and destruction they are going to bring when they hear the Supreme Court decision to annul the 2020 vote is released. I believe they will come against the Christians too.) I then switched to a scene where I was heading to a disciple school with a ministry. I went to my room and Egzona, my sister in Christ came for the LONG ride. (Egzona means, joy and contentment. She went to disciple school with joy and contentment.) It took hours to get to this school and it was a ride with many things that were scary along the ride as it seemed dangerous but we kept going.  (Riots and Martial Law is coming.) I remember my mom and sister were in the car (neither of which are born again). I remember seeing my sister in the passenger seat up front with my white pair of sneakers on that were too tight for her. (Gabbys walk of purity is too restrictive for her because of too much flesh. She must be born from above.)   I wasn't the one driving and neither was Egzona, must've been my mom. When we arrived at the discipleship house I was trying to convince Egzona to stay because it seemed to be what the Lord was leading, I reminded her of desires she's had and shared with me about life.       Joel's Army and Gideon's Army A vision given to Robert I. Holmes (David's notes in red) (In late October 1996 I had a startling vision. (Remember, this vision was in 1996 and things have progressed since that time.) I was looking down from a high place and I saw a mighty army. It was marching in a long line, like a great column snaking through the jungle. It looked for all the world like a serpent. At its head was a banner, which read “Joel's army”. Behind them they left a swath of destruction, a road of sorts cut through the jungle. I was made aware that this army was ‘now marching' or had already mobilized. (Joel's army was the Assyrian army that conquered the apostate Northern tribes of Israel and apostate Judah, which they are in the process of doing with their vaccine plagues and others. These tribes represent apostate Christianity, both non-Spirit filled and "Spirit filled”, who have no faith in God to heal or to deliver from their curses. When they are finished with them, they will attempt to attack Jerusalem, the Bride, and God will destroy them.) I also saw off to one side, hidden in dense undergrowth, a battalion. This group stood quietly, waiting in the jungle. They were assembled in a square, and they were awaiting instructions. At the head of this smaller group was a banner which read "Gideon's army”. (Gideon represents the Man-child head of the Bride who will bring the Beast down.) Then I looked and saw a single platoon, off to the side of the battalion. It stood divided. I looked carefully at this group, feeling at first that it represented the local body of believers I belonged to at the time. They were standing in mud, in two ranks facing each other. The Spirit expressly said, "Many have passed through their ranks” and I began to realize they were (are) the prophets. These troops were stuck in the mud, and had not moved on for some time. (The prophetic voices are scrambled. The apostate are false prophetic. the true prophetic Spirit-filled are in the minority.)     Joel's Army Joel's army has been promoted widely as being a good army, an army of the church. Many songs, sung in Pentecostal and mainline Evangelical churches even quote the warrior Scriptures as relating to the church. However I do not hold to that understanding. To me, Joel's army is one of terrible locusts, "a great and powerful army... before them is like Eden, after them is desolate" (Joel 2:2,3). This is similar to the picture I had. Joel says they are "a powerful army, drawn up for battle, before them the nations are in anguish" (5,6). Why are the nations terrified of this army? Because they are an instrument of judgement. [against the apostate people of God.] Note that the Scripture does not say, "God's enemies are in anguish before them." Nor does it imply that the devil is afraid of them. It is the nations who are afraid. This army is made up of "the cutting locust... the swarming locust... the hopping locust... the destroying locust" (Joel 1:4). This is not a picture of the Bride of Christ. Evidently the army first destroys or bring judgement against God's own people because later in the book of Joel, God consoles His people saying, "I will repay YOU for the years the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer and the cutter, that great army I sent against you" (Joel 2:25). This is clearly God's instrument of judgement against both his church and the nations (peoples), not a great or good army in the church! The passages relating to Joel's army confuse some, because it is said that the Lord is at the head of HIS army. He is in control of them. But that no more makes them the church than it made Babylon or Assyria the church! Jeremiah depicts Babylon as God's own instrument, his servant (Jer 25:9), just as Isaiah depicts Assyria as being a weapon in God's hand (Isa 7:20). God used them, as He uses the army depicted by Joel, to berate and scold an unrepentant Israel. In the same way, Joel's army is marching in the end times, to scold and rebuke, to consume and devour the unregenerate church. (Amen! This is the Assyrian army who first conquered all of Israel and Judah and in Joel 2 was approaching Jerusalem whom John was told is the Bride.  As they called on the Lord, He smote 185,000 of their best warriors and the rest fled. Today this beast is conquering the apostate people of God but will be destroyed before Zion, the Bride, as the Man-child groom and Bride are revealed for the first time.)     Gideon's Army The second army I saw however, portrays an altogether different picture. Here is an army fully prepared, awaiting instruction. It is not yet mobile. The battalion (in military terms about 10,000 men) was labelled Gideon's army. It represents the refined, the chosen, the remnant church. This second army is not yet marching. They are stable, focused, balanced and awaiting instruction. They have NOT been given their marching orders! (That was in 1996. Gideon's army has been conquering the enemy; bringing down the DS faction and the Church faction by spiritual warfare.) Gideon and his men were exhorted: "Go in this might of yours and deliver Israel... I will be with you and you shall strike down the Midianites" (Judg 6:14,15). Note there is an explicit command to strike down the enemies of Israel, or for the church, the devil and his powers- not the church! (It is the Man-child and Bride Bodies that strike down the Assyrian empire, representing the Beast of our day. Many apostates believe it is man who is bringing down the Beast empire but Jesus said, “What you bind on earth is bound in heaven” and “I give you authority over all the power of the enemy.") As I read through the account of Gideon in Judges 6-8 several things strike me about them. If this army is a picture of the remnant, then it will help to see what they had, and what they did. Firstly, they were twice refined. At first a great number of men gathered to fight (32,000 in all). During the first purging the Lord removed those who had the fear of man. This took their number down to 10,000. In my vision I saw the battalion (10,000 men) labelled as Gideon's army. This seems to indicate that the assembling battalion has already been refined of the fear of man. The second purging Gideon's army underwent was to remove those who trusted in their own strength. This took their number down to 300 which is the present Gideon's army; the one of my vision. (Many expect this second purging next. This purging and refining is finished and they are in the process of spiritual warfare to bring down this Beast who is attempting to destroy the Bride.) The next thing we notice about Gideon's army (and from now on these things are to come to the Gideon army gathered today) is that they were fewer in number than would be expected. Their number was so few in fact, that the move of God could not be blamed on them! The glory could only go to God and Israel would not be able to boast about the strength of her right arm. This fits well with my vision, as the assembled crowd represented only one battalion, not a whole army. The mighty triumphs and victories destined for this group can only be laid at the feet of Jesus. In their first battle, Gideon moved only according to God's command. It was at God's initiative, at His request, and by His plan only. It was interesting that as an army, they carried no swords! How could they possibly win the battle without weapons? Their battle cry was “a sword for the Lord and Gideon" (7:20) and the enemy "feared the sword of Gideon"(7:13). Yet in actual fact their hands were full. They went into battle with a shofar in one hand... and fire in jars in the other. The shofar symbolizes the prophetic clarion or the watchmen, used to sound the alarm and awaken the city. (The shofar represented turning breath or spirit, same word in Hebrew, into what can be heard. It represents the prophetic commands against the enemy and not warning the city. They did not want the help of the city.) The fire in jars may well speak of this very great treasure we have within us, this precious truth about Christ which shall demonstrate his very great power: "we have this treasure in clay jars", so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us." (2 Co. 4:7). Likewise the secret to our warfare is also that the weapons of our battle are not merely carnal, they are divine to the tearing down of strongholds (2 Co. 10:4). (The earthen vessels represent the carnal man, which has to be broken so that the fire of the Spirit can go forth through the spiritual man who has been given authority over the enemies.)     The Sons of Ephraim After winning an amazing victory in their first battle, Gideon's army pressed the defeated enemy far into the Northern region. They passed through into the land of Ephraim, toward Penuel. The inhabitants of this region - the sons of Ephraim, were accomplished soldiers. Over the years they had managed successive enlargements of their territory, and were powerful enough by Isaiah's time for him to even call them the Northern Kingdom! (Isa 7:28,29). They had defeated the princes of Midian, Oreb, and Zeeb (Jud 8:3) and were furious that Gideon had left them out of the battle! Gideon must have considered taking such fine fighting men along to route the enemy, yet we read that he proceeded on without them (v 4). Whilst Gideon acknowledges their superior strength in battle (Judg 8:2), he in fact uses this as a way of diplomatically declining their implied offer of help. He proceeds without the prestigious fighters. It would have been tempting to take them along in his battle. There were, and are many good reasons to bring along people who seem to have a fruitful ministry (the name Ephraim means "fruitful place” in Hebrew). (It was said to represent the fullness of nations.) They may have prestige, they may have power, they may be experienced in battle and spiritual warfare, they may have ruled in the previous moves of God yet we, like Gideon, should deny their aide. Gideon did not choose their help at all. They do indeed have a special place in God's heart and plan, but not in His present plan for the army of Gideon. They are to route the enemy with the help of Jehovah alone! In conclusion, my vision, lastly, is a warning that we must clean up, and move on. We must not pretend we are clean when in fact we are dirty. The call of the hour for those who call themselves prophetic is ‘holiness unto the Lord'. Holy so that we may prepare and join the gathering, training, waiting army of Gideon in battle. (The battle represented spiritual warfare. If it was only physical warfare, Ephraim would have been valuable but God's power is made perfect through our weakness.) This reminds me of Eve's revelation about Gideon's 300:     UBM is at the Red Sea Now Eve Brast - 9/2/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed that all of local and larger UBM who had obeyed Father's commands for the 8 day fast and the angel's command for the “last century Book of Acts Church" were gathered at the edge of the Red Sea. Those who had forsaken all the ways of Egypt and had completely come out into the wilderness were gathered there. No one had anything with them except their clothes. Everyone was dressed like Israelites of old in clothing that was in different shades of blue. (The shades of blue represent being dressed up in heavenly works.) (I only saw men in the dream because my view of the people didn't extend beyond those that were closest to the rock that David and I were standing on. I didn't see women or children in the dream.) (The David Man-child reformers and Eve representing the Bride are typed here.) Their numbers weren't in the thousands but only a few hundred. (I asked the Lord what the few hundred (or 300) that were next to the Red Sea represented and I heard, “The Sword of the Lord and of Gideon.” I believe they represent those who aren't fearful to engage in the battle and also those that the Lord has tried by the Water, representing the Word. (Each man is tested by the Word as to their obedience.) These are the over-comers who have obeyed the Lord and not their flesh. Jud. 7:2-14) (This could be the men of leadership under the Man-child David's who are prepared for the wilderness tribulation before the Church arrives. Gideon was a type of the Man-child and his 300 tested men who blew the shofars and broke the pitchers were a type of the Bride, the disciples/apostles. These went out to conquer the enemies for God's people. "The sword of the Lord and of Gideon!" was a powerful and exciting announcement of the beginning of the battle to divide and scatter the demonic enemies of UBM and the David ministries. This announcement signaled the breaking of the clay pitcher, representing the flesh, so the torch, as the light of God's life and Word, could shine out. This made it possible for the shofar, symbolizing the "breath", which in Hebrew is the same word for "Spirit", to be audible in the physical realm. This is the true prophetic Word of God which is spoken to bring every victory. This is the "Sword of the Lord and of Gideon" to scatter the demonic enemy.) The waters of the Red Sea were calm at the moment and it was dark out but, I could see everything by the bright light of the moon. I was standing on top of a large rock that was near the water's edge observing the whole scene and I was dressed in some type of sheer material that was flowing and full of wind although everything else around was still. I saw David, representing the David Man-child reformers, on the same rock further down, closer to the people. He was speaking with some of the men who were closest to the rock's edge. David was dressed in modern blue jeans and a light blue colored, short sleeved, Polo shirt. (What? No suit! Lol.) Egypt was behind us, at our backs. There was no danger from enemies or fear that they were going to trap us there in the dream. Everyone was at peace and waiting on the Lord. (I suppose they were waiting for the rest of the Church to show up so we could all cross the Red Sea together and see their enemies decimated in time for the Tribulation.) Then the voice of God spoke out of heaven to David and all the people from the direction that was between us and Egypt. He said, “These are My people who have obeyed all of My commands and have left Egypt behind to follow Me into the wilderness. I will provide for your every need from now on. I have scattered and defeated your enemies and they are no longer any threat to you. (This is true of the first fruits Man-child and Bride but not yet true of the remaining Church.) Do NOT look back towards Egypt. Do not heed the voice of man or pay attention to their leavened speech. Do not look to their ways or consider their lies and their deceptions. You will hearken unto My voice alone and be led by My Spirit alone.” Then I woke up. Father continued to speak to me after I woke up, "No other information or direction of man pertains to you. My ways are above their ways and My sons hear and consider My voice alone. Continue to put away the devices of Egypt that bring distraction and separation from Me and My Spirit. Cast down and reject all the voices of vanity, deception, and the reasonings of men that cause you to err in your minds and dull your hearing and your understanding. What I Am doing with My Bride and for My people has nothing to do with the vain plans or ways of men. Only My purposes will succeed. Only My plans will stand. I will cause you to walk above this earth in My heavenly places. You are not on their timeline, nor are you subject to the things of this world or the wicked plans of men who don't consider Me or call upon Me. I will be your All in All; your only source and provision in My wilderness, for the wilderness and everything in it belongs to Me and not to wicked men. Refrain from looking backward and going backward only to meet with the same destruction as Lot's wife, for you ARE in the days of Lot. Destruction is coming quickly to Sodom and Gomorrah. This is it. Only those who completely divorce themselves from Egypt and climb the mountain to remain continually in My presence will be hidden. The rest will fall in this wilderness tribulation due to the wavering of their faith, a lack of obedience and succumbing to their enemies. You will no longer be as the Israelites of old who refused to climb the mountain with Moses, to come into My presence and hear My Words for fear of death. Everyone will climb the mountain and enter into My presence and hear My voice and My Spirit. Ask of Me all things that pertain to your lives and godliness and I will give it to you in abundance. I Am for you and I wish that none of you perish. Hold fast to My promises and don't be slack to perform all that I have commanded you through My messengers. My peace will rest upon you and great success will be yours, in your obedience, as you continue to seek My face and draw close to Me.”   Be Careful What Water You're Swimming In   Claire Pienaar - 10/15/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was with my parents and my little family on vacation. (This represents resting from our works). My parents did not like this vacation. (This shows that the apostates don't know how to rest in the promises of the Gospel, [it makes them uncomfortable]). We wanted to swim and be in the water the entire time. They made continuous excuses and rejected us at every turn about everything we suggested during this vacation. (The apostates are of a different spirit than true believers and they reject the good news of the Gospel and the continual Sabbath rest because they believe they are justified by their works.) However, we were undeterred. My son, especially, was in the water like a fish the entire time. (Riaan: The ones that have come out of the apostate mother church only want to rest in the water of the Word while the apostate mother church makes excuses to not get “into the Word”). We walked along a beach and we saw a kelp forest peeking out from the surface of the ocean. My son told me, “Mommy… there will be many predators in the water there. We won't go in there. We'll stick to clear water”. (We must exercise discernment). (There are many predators in the murky waters which represent a mixture of the Word which the predators use.) I agreed, but the strange thing was that NOW my folks wanted to swim. They did everything to manipulate, control and coerce us into that murky ocean water with the kelp. (The murky waters invariably allow the flesh to live. It is trash doctrines.) We did not go into the murky water, even after they displayed anger towards us for not going. (Riaan: They only know the polluted water with false doctrine and that's where the enemy hides.) My son, Daniel, took my hand and led me back to the fresh clear water of a large pool. Then I woke up. (Riaan: Follow the Man-child, Jesus, and He will lead you to still, clear waters.)   Select Language Afrikaans Albanian Amharic Arabic Armenian Assamese Aymara Azerbaijani Bambara Basque Belarusian Bengali Bhojpuri Bosnian Bulgarian Catalan Cebuano Chichewa Chinese (Simplified) Chinese (Traditional) Corsican Croatian Czech Danish Dhivehi Dogri Dutch Esperanto Estonian Ewe Filipino Finnish French Frisian Galician Georgian German Greek Guarani Gujarati Haitian Creole Hausa Hawaiian Hebrew Hindi Hmong Hungarian Icelandic Igbo Ilocano Indonesian Irish Italian Japanese Javanese Kannada Kazakh Khmer Kinyarwanda Konkani Korean Krio Kurdish (Kurmanji) Kurdish (Sorani) Kyrgyz Lao Latin Latvian Lingala Lithuanian Luganda Luxembourgish Macedonian Maithili Malagasy Malay Malayalam Maltese Maori Marathi Meiteilon (Manipuri) Mizo Mongolian Myanmar (Burmese) Nepali Norwegian Odia (Oriya) Oromo Pashto Persian Polish Portuguese Punjabi Quechua Romanian Russian Samoan Sanskrit Scots Gaelic Sepedi Serbian Sesotho Shona Sindhi Sinhala Slovak Slovenian Somali Spanish Sundanese Swahili Swedish Tajik Tamil Tatar Telugu Thai Tigrinya Tsonga Turkish Turkmen Twi Ukrainian Urdu Uyghur Uzbek Vietnamese Welsh Xhosa Yiddish Yoruba Zulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version

BIO: Rick is the Founder & CEO of ReachOut Technology, which just had its initial public offering. He appears on global media and speaks on stages across the United States as an inspirational speaker, cybersecurity expert, and mindset motivator. STORY: Rick wanted to bail out a struggling friend, so he offered to buy his business. Unfortunately, he didn't have a legal structure during the acquisition to include a non-compete clause. Six months later, his friend started another company and took back the clients Rick had acquired from the sale. LEARNING: Get the proper legal structure when buying a business. Refrain from letting emotion drive your decisions when investing. There's no such thing as a bad asset, just a bad price.   “I think business partners can become friends, but I don't think friends can become business partners.”Rick Jordan  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/mrrickjordan/ (Rick Jordan) is a magnetic personality who constantly appears on global media and speaks on stages across the United States as an inspirational speaker, cybersecurity expert, and mindset motivator. Rick is the Founder & CEO of https://reachoutit.com/ (ReachOut Technology), which just had its initial public offering. In his free time, Rick is the host of the popular podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/all-in-with-rick-jordan/id1450998120 (ALL IN with Rick Jordan). Worst investment everRick's longtime friend struggled in business, making about $150,000 in revenue annually before expenses. He requested Rick to take out a loan for him, but Rick felt this wasn't the best way to approach the problem because his friend wasn't in a position to afford to pay the loan. Instead, he advised him to sell his business and get into employment. Rick even offered to buy the company. His friend agreed to the proposal. Rick's first mistake when getting into this deal was overvaluing his friend's business. The second mistake was letting emotions drive his decision when he valued the company. Being his friend, there was an emotional attachment to Rick's decision. Rick believed he would take on his friend's client base and triple the revenue in no time. The excitement to get the ball rolling saw Rick make his third mistake. Rick didn't get solid business acquisition documentation in place. He just had a very simple contract to purchase the business assets. No absolute non-compete clause was listed within this document. As a result, six months later, his friend returned to business under a different name and took back all the customers Rick had acquired during the purchase. Lessons learnedBe careful when valuing a business. Get the proper legal structure when buying a business. Refrain from letting emotion drive your decisions when investing. Friends typically don't make good business partners or business associates. Andrew's takeawaysTo produce tangible evidence that you have a sustainable business, you need to get between $3 to $5 million in revenue. You need consistent growth in profits. To be successful in business, your number one goal should be to pay a dividend. There's no such thing as a bad asset, just a bad price. If you're a business manager, and you have an opportunity to help a friend, stop. Your obligation is to help your customers, employees, and shareholders.

No.1 goal for the next 12 monthsRick's number one goal for the next 12 months is to get to $50 million in revenue.

Kingsway Christian Church Sermons - Audio

Sermon Notes Do you believe in love at first sight, or do I have to walk past you again? Meet-Cute is "a cute, charming, or amusing first encounter between romantic partners (as in a movie)." - Merriam-webster.com Genesis 29:9-14 NIV "While he was still talking with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep, for she was a shepherd. When Jacob saw Rachel, daughter of his uncle Laban and Laban's sheep, he went over and rolled the stone away from the mouth of the well and watered his uncle's sheep. Then Jacob kissed Rachel and began to weep aloud. He had told Rachel that he was a relative of her father and a son of Rebekah. So she ran and told her father. As soon as Laban heard the news about Jacob, his sister's son, he hurried to meet him. He embraced him and kissed him and brought him to his home, and there Jacob told him all these things. Then Laban said to him, 'You are my own flesh and blood.'" Genesis 29:16-21 NIV Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful. Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, 'I'll work for you seven years in return for your younger daughter, Rachel.' Laban said, 'It's better that I give her to you than to some other man. Stay here with me.' So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her. Then Jacob said to Laban, 'Give me my wife. My time is completed, and I want to make love to her.'" Genesis 30:1a NIV When Rachel saw that she was not bearing Jacob any children, she became jealous of her sister. Jealousy - A burning desire for something someone else has (synonymous with zealous, envious, or coveting). James‬ ‭4‬:‭1‬-‭3‬ ‭NIV "What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet, but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures."‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ Genesis 30:1b NIV "So she said to Jacob, 'Give me children, or I'll die!'" Proverbs 15:1 NIV "A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." Genesis 30:2 NIV "Jacob became angry with her and said, 'Am I in the place of God, who has kept you from having children?'" Colossians 3:19 NIV "Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.‭‭‬‬‬‬‬‬" Genesis 30:14-16 NIV "During wheat harvest, Reuben went out into the fields and found some mandrake plants, which he brought to his mother, Leah. Rachel said to Leah, 'Please give me some of your son's mandrakes.' But she said to her, 'Wasn't it enough that you took away my husband? Will you take my son's mandrakes too?' 'Very well,' Rachel said, 'he can sleep with you tonight in return for your son's mandrakes.' So when Jacob came in from the fields that evening, Leah went out to meet him. 'You must sleep with me,' she said. 'I have hired you with my son's mandrakes.' So he slept with her that night." When we try to control God instead of seeking God, things often go awry. Psalms‬ ‭37‬:‭1‬-‭4‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ "Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart." What if God has not answered your prayer yet because He is doing something better than what you are asking? Genesis 30:22-24 NIV "Then God remembered Rachel; he listened to her and enabled her to conceive. She became pregnant and gave birth to a son and said, 'God has taken away my disgrace.' She named him Joseph and said, 'May the Lord add to me another son.'" God is fully committed to seeing his children through to the finish. Trust in Him! Psalms‬ ‭37‬:‭5‬-‭9‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ "Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil. For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land."

Today Daily Devotional

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil. — Psalm 37:8 Injustice makes us angry. That's okay, but we must be careful. Psalm 37:8 cautions us not to fuss so much about the evil we see that we become evildoers ourselves. First, we see evil or injustice, and we begin to fret about it. It's not fair that by doing evil things some people gain power and wealth. And what if that evil gets directed toward us? If we fret about it too much, we can begin to get angry. “Why doesn't anyone stop them?” we cry. “We ought to put them in their place!” And if we stay angry, that can grow and become wrath. In wrath, we can be consumed by our anger. If we are not thinking straight and are not careful, we can fall into behavior that leads to evil. A lot of research in past decades has shown that this kind of progression is behind a lot of criminal activity. Someone experiences injustice, and before you know it, they are acting unjustly too. Maybe at first they directed their evil at people who were hurting them. But it doesn't always end there. Though wrath may not always lead to criminal activity, it is destructive. Wrath can cause things like mocking, bullying, and other unjust activities as well. The solution is to avoid even fretting about evil. God will provide justice, and he will provide for our needs as well. We might not be able to stop everyone else's evil, but we can at least stop ourselves by resting patiently in God. Dear God, help us to trust that you will provide justice fittingly in your time. Amen.

Proper 24 First Psalm: Psalm 37:1–18 Psalm 37:1–18 (Listen) He Will Not Forsake His Saints 1 Of David. 37   Fret not yourself because of evildoers;    be not envious of wrongdoers!2   For they will soon fade like the grass    and wither like the green herb. 3   Trust in the LORD, and do good;    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.24   Delight yourself in the LORD,    and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5   Commit your way to the LORD;    trust in him, and he will act.6   He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,    and your justice as the noonday. 7   Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;    fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,    over the man who carries out evil devices! 8   Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!    Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.9   For the evildoers shall be cut off,    but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land. 10   In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;    though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.11   But the meek shall inherit the land    and delight themselves in abundant peace. 12   The wicked plots against the righteous    and gnashes his teeth at him,13   but the Lord laughs at the wicked,    for he sees that his day is coming. 14   The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows    to bring down the poor and needy,    to slay those whose way is upright;15   their sword shall enter their own heart,    and their bows shall be broken. 16   Better is the little that the righteous has    than the abundance of many wicked.17   For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,    but the LORD upholds the righteous. 18   The LORD knows the days of the blameless,    and their heritage will remain forever; Footnotes [1] 37:1 This psalm is an acrostic poem, each stanza beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet [2] 37:3 Or and feed on faithfulness, or and find safe pasture (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalm 37:19–40 Psalm 37:19–40 (Listen) 19   they are not put to shame in evil times;    in the days of famine they have abundance. 20   But the wicked will perish;    the enemies of the LORD are like the glory of the pastures;    they vanish—like smoke they vanish away. 21   The wicked borrows but does not pay back,    but the righteous is generous and gives;22   for those blessed by the LORD1 shall inherit the land,    but those cursed by him shall be cut off. 23   The steps of a man are established by the LORD,    when he delights in his way;24   though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,    for the LORD upholds his hand. 25   I have been young, and now am old,    yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken    or his children begging for bread.26   He is ever lending generously,    and his children become a blessing. 27   Turn away from evil and do good;    so shall you dwell forever.28   For the LORD loves justice;    he will not forsake his saints.  They are preserved forever,    but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.29   The righteous shall inherit the land    and dwell upon it forever. 30   The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,    and his tongue speaks justice.31   The law of his God is in his heart;    his steps do not slip. 32   The wicked watches for the righteous    and seeks to put him to death.33   The LORD will not abandon him to his power    or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial. 34   Wait for the LORD and keep his way,    and he will exalt you to inherit the land;    you will look on when the wicked are cut off. 35   I have seen a wicked, ruthless man,    spreading himself like a green laurel tree.236   But he passed away,3 and behold, he was no more;    though I sought him, he could not be found. 37   Mark the blameless and behold the upright,    for there is a future for the man of peace.38   But transgressors shall be altogether destroyed;    the future of the wicked shall be cut off. 39   The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;    he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.40   The LORD helps them and delivers them;    he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,    because they take refuge in him. Footnotes [1] 37:22 Hebrew by him [2] 37:35 The identity of this tree is uncertain [3] 37:36 Or But one passed by (ESV) Old Testament: Ecclesiasticus 10:1-18 New Testament: Revelation 9:1–12 Revelation 9:1–12 (Listen) 9 And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit.1 2 He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft. 3 Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone. 6 And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them. 7 In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, 8 their hair like women's hair, and their teeth like lions' teeth; 9 they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. 10 They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails. 11 They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.2 12 The first woe has passed; behold, two woes are still to come. Footnotes [1] 9:1 Greek the abyss; also verses 2, 11 [2] 9:11 Abaddon means destruction; Apollyon means destroyer (ESV) Gospel: Luke 10:25–37 Luke 10:25–37 (Listen) The Parable of the Good Samaritan 25 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” 27 And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” 28 And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.” 29 But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 30 Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 32 So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 And the next day he took out two denarii1 and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.' 36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” 37 He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.” Footnotes [1] 10:35 A denarius was a day's wage for a laborer (ESV)

Thomas Porcher catégorique : "Pourquoi les grévistes ont raison"

Bonjour tout le monde et bienvenue pour ce nouvel Instant Porcher dans Toujours Debout ! Je suis ravie de vous retrouver ! L'Instant Porcher c'est un petit moment qu'on se prend, entre nous, avec Thomas Porcher, chaque semaine pour décrypter l'actualité. Car on le sait, le discours est politique et les comprendre est un véritable enjeu démocratique. Au programme aujourd'hui : Les salariés d'Esso ExxonMobil, TotalEnergies et Argedis (filiale de Total) sont en grève depuis fin septembre et depuis ce week-end, par ricochet, les stations services connaissent des pénuries de carburant. La principale revendication des syndicats et salariés : avoir un salaire indexé sur les prix, sur l'inflation. Autre axe majeur dans ces mouvements de grève : le partage des richesses, quand on connaît les profits records des géants pétroliers pendant la crise des prix. Le gouvernement met la pression pour que le conflit s'arrête et réclame le déblocage. Sous la pression, TotalEnergies a proposé dimanche d'avancer à octobre ses négociations annuelles sur les salaires à condition que les blocages prennent fin. La CGT a dénoncé un chantage. Le conflit s'enlise et la grève est reconduite. Du côté d'Esso, c'est un peu différent. La CGT et FO ont reconduit la grève qui touche les deux raffineries françaises du groupe ayant rejeté l'accord signé par les autres syndicats hier et aujourd'hui. Elisabeth Borne a alors annoncé avoir demandé aux préfets d'engager, « comme le permet la loi", "la réquisition des personnels indispensables au fonctionnement des dépôts" d'Esso-ExxonMobil, aujourd'hui, lors des questions au gouvernement à l'Assemblée nationale. Qui dit pénuries de carburant, dit usagers mécontents, dit tensions, dit il n'en fallait pas plus pour monter les travailleurs et travailleuses les uns contre les autres et où les grévistes sont accusés de prendre en otage les usagers par leurs patrons ou le gouvernement. Autre débat, le salaire. Les revendications des salariés des raffineries sont-elles légitimes ? Comment se porte le secteur du raffinage en France ? On décrypte tout ça. « Chaque geste compte » c'est la campagne du gouvernement. Refrain assez classique. Bref il faut limiter son chauffage à 19 degrés, 17 dans les chambres, décaler l'usage des gros appareils pour éviter la coupure pendant les pics de consommation, et il y aura même le « bonus sobriété » pour recomposer les foyers. C'est l'Instant Porcher. ▶ Soutenez Le Média :

I was on call this past weekend which means that I'm busy, and I see a lot of patients; this can, of course, be overwhelming. However, I was walking through my process the way I coach myself and observing what I did to keep myself grounded and not overcome by the overwhelm.   The first step in decreasing our stress and suffering is accepting any given state. This is something I've noticed for myself because, of course, I manage my mind and truly love my life no matter what's going on, no matter how hard things might be. I enjoy my life in multiple moments every single day. That is not to say that I don't have bad days or I don't cry. There have been times when I cry a lot. And if I feel like I'm going through a hard time, I will ask myself what is going wrong? What can I fix? Because I tend to be a healer and fixer. That's why I went into medicine.   That's why I went into life coaching.   But recently, I was expressing my “overwhelm” in a group and asked how I deal... I said I allow myself to feel the feelings…ask myself what is going wrong, and come up with a plan/solution.   I am a solution-oriented person, and one of my mentors has always taught me not to be a complainer but come up with solutions, so that is how I have learned to be wired. Not a bad thing. I'm good with it.   But what comes along with this is the idea that something is wrong when I don't have it perfectly together 100% of the time. I recently had this realization. I, too, have to check myself in following my processes because I am not perfect. I think about my podcast on perfectionism, episode #24. And realize that I have to be reminded to give myself grace as well.   I'm not perfect, nor will I ever be. And, of course, I acknowledge life is good and bad…so there will be challenging times. Hence, of course, there will be times when perhaps there are too many challenges at once, and I may feel more overwhelmed than usual.   Because I have my tools for that of course, recently, with some major transitions going on in my life, including transitioning away from a nanny, sending my baby to daycare, and other things, I realized I was dealing perhaps with more than I have ever dealt with before. Juggling even more balls in the air than usual! I had to dig deep, do some deep personal work, and reflect on how I would handle this and not to let the sense of "overwhelm" overcome me so I could thrive, prevail, and continue to enjoy my life.   Here is what I found… -When shit gets rough and hits the fan, know it is not permanent; this I know. But know that it may take me where I need to go. I can certainly reflect on times in my life when things were difficult, but the challenging times laid the groundwork for the next step. -Nothing has gone wrong. I am doing my best, and that's TOTALLY enough. -I don't have to tackle every single problem at once Problems and challenges come in various shapes, sizes, and packages and have varying degrees of complexity. Therefore some challenges we can face head-on very quickly and solve. For example, a messy house would hire a cleaner, which is extremely simple. Perhaps with some leg room in there to hire, but overall simple. However, there are larger problems in life, like challenging relationships or decisions to leave a toxic work environment, and the list goes on…that may require more mental energy. -In the case of the larger problem requiring more energy, we must cultivate patience. Trust yourself. This is something we work on inside my coaching program. Essentially, once you trust yourself, you know that the answer will come to you. Often, you simply need time and space. Then, you will figure out the solution. -Everything is figureoutable. Sometimes it just takes longer than you bargained for. -Hence, cultivating patience makes our life experience more enjoyable. And when you're completely exhausted, make sure you are very cautious, mindful/careful of giving your energy away to anyone who may need or want it…guard your energy.   Refrain from activities that deplete it Refrain from people-pleasing Be very picky about what you do when you are going through this. For example, don't take on more than you have to during these times. When dealing with major transitions/decisions/stressors, our to-do list can be very daunting, so we don't want to add more. Don't do anything you don't want to do; don't hang out with anyone you don't want to hang out with. Be you unabashedly because it doesn't require any extra work.   My process helps professional moms with the seemingly perfect life who are silently suffering on the inside to know that they're not alone and that they reclaim their confidence and power to have the life they want, even if that feels impossible right now.   And please share this podcast with anyone you think would benefit or enjoy it.

The tune is meant to be joyful and evoke delight. Prayer: Most loving Father, whose will it is for us to give thanks for all things, to fear nothing but the loss of you, and to cast all our care on you who care for us: Preserve us from faithless fears and worldly anxieties, that no clouds of this mortal life may hide from us the light of that love which is immortal, and which you have manifested to us in your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

This week on Real Talk with Rachael features a very special guest, my daughter, Ellie. Ellie Gilbert is a sophomore in high school who loves using her voice wherever God plants her. She loves to cheer, compete in speech and debate tournaments, and preach the gospel at youth events. In her downtime, you can find her working on her latest crochet project. Key Points from Our Conversation: Creating a safe space for teens to have open conversations with their kids about hard topics means they're not relying on the internet and peers to be the authority in their lives. It gives the child the ability to ask more questions to find true understanding. Awkwardness keeps teens from feeling safe to have hard conversations with their parents. Allow them to say it "wrong," then help them find the right words to express their thoughts and feelings. It's hard for teens to bring up an opinion or thought that may not align with their parents. Teens should approach these sensitive topics with respect and feel comfortable asking the why so they can make decisions with better understanding. Finding identity and the fear of making the wrong choices in the process is a teen's hardest struggle. What they need is someone to guide and encourage them that their circumstances don't define them - God does. Teens have a stubbornness that can make it hard to receive encouragement. Pray that God changes their heart posture to receive the truth. Teens should remember that this phase of life is not forever. It's a time to learn, grow, and connect. Encourage them to keep their eyes on the big picture. The mother-daughter relationship is just that - a relationship, not a dictatorship. We should desire to build each other up and help one another, learn from each perspective. Let's Get Real Practical: Ways to invest in a relationship with anyone from another generation who doesn't think or act like you: Don't take yourself or each other too seriously. Have fun and teach each other new things. Have real talk. Be honest and speak the truth in love. Listen more than you speak Be a safe space. Refrain from overreacting. Ask - Do you want me to listen or problem-solve? Invest in the relationship. (Try reading a book together.) Pray together. Seek therapy for yourself to get healing.

Psalms 36–39 Psalms 36–39 (Listen) How Precious Is Your Steadfast Love To the choirmaster. Of David, the servant of the LORD. 36   Transgression speaks to the wicked    deep in his heart;1  there is no fear of God    before his eyes.2   For he flatters himself in his own eyes    that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated.3   The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit;    he has ceased to act wisely and do good.4   He plots trouble while on his bed;    he sets himself in a way that is not good;    he does not reject evil. 5   Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens,    your faithfulness to the clouds.6   Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;    your judgments are like the great deep;    man and beast you save, O LORD. 7   How precious is your steadfast love, O God!    The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.8   They feast on the abundance of your house,    and you give them drink from the river of your delights.9   For with you is the fountain of life;    in your light do we see light. 10   Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you,    and your righteousness to the upright of heart!11   Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me,    nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.12   There the evildoers lie fallen;    they are thrust down, unable to rise. He Will Not Forsake His Saints 2 Of David. 37   Fret not yourself because of evildoers;    be not envious of wrongdoers!2   For they will soon fade like the grass    and wither like the green herb. 3   Trust in the LORD, and do good;    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.34   Delight yourself in the LORD,    and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5   Commit your way to the LORD;    trust in him, and he will act.6   He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,    and your justice as the noonday. 7   Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;    fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,    over the man who carries out evil devices! 8   Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!    Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.9   For the evildoers shall be cut off,    but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land. 10   In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;    though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.11   But the meek shall inherit the land    and delight themselves in abundant peace. 12   The wicked plots against the righteous    and gnashes his teeth at him,13   but the Lord laughs at the wicked,    for he sees that his day is coming. 14   The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows    to bring down the poor and needy,    to slay those whose way is upright;15   their sword shall enter their own heart,    and their bows shall be broken. 16   Better is the little that the righteous has    than the abundance of many wicked.17   For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,    but the LORD upholds the righteous. 18   The LORD knows the days of the blameless,    and their heritage will remain forever;19   they are not put to shame in evil times;    in the days of famine they have abundance. 20   But the wicked will perish;    the enemies of the LORD are like the glory of the pastures;    they vanish—like smoke they vanish away. 21   The wicked borrows but does not pay back,    but the righteous is generous and gives;22   for those blessed by the LORD4 shall inherit the land,    but those cursed by him shall be cut off. 23   The steps of a man are established by the LORD,    when he delights in his way;24   though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,    for the LORD upholds his hand. 25   I have been young, and now am old,    yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken    or his children begging for bread.26   He is ever lending generously,    and his children become a blessing. 27   Turn away from evil and do good;    so shall you dwell forever.28   For the LORD loves justice;    he will not forsake his saints.  They are preserved forever,    but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.29   The righteous shall inherit the land    and dwell upon it forever. 30   The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,    and his tongue speaks justice.31   The law of his God is in his heart;    his steps do not slip. 32   The wicked watches for the righteous    and seeks to put him to death.33   The LORD will not abandon him to his power    or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial. 34   Wait for the LORD and keep his way,    and he will exalt you to inherit the land;    you will look on when the wicked are cut off. 35   I have seen a wicked, ruthless man,    spreading himself like a green laurel tree.536   But he passed away,6 and behold, he was no more;    though I sought him, he could not be found. 37   Mark the blameless and behold the upright,    for there is a future for the man of peace.38   But transgressors shall be altogether destroyed;    the future of the wicked shall be cut off. 39   The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;    he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.40   The LORD helps them and delivers them;    he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,    because they take refuge in him. Do Not Forsake Me, O Lord A Psalm of David, for the memorial offering. 38   O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger,    nor discipline me in your wrath!2   For your arrows have sunk into me,    and your hand has come down on me. 3   There is no soundness in my flesh    because of your indignation;  there is no health in my bones    because of my sin.4   For my iniquities have gone over my head;    like a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me. 5   My wounds stink and fester    because of my foolishness,6   I am utterly bowed down and prostrate;    all the day I go about mourning.7   For my sides are filled with burning,    and there is no soundness in my flesh.8   I am feeble and crushed;    I groan because of the tumult of my heart. 9   O Lord, all my longing is before you;    my sighing is not hidden from you.10   My heart throbs; my strength fails me,    and the light of my eyes—it also has gone from me.11   My friends and companions stand aloof from my plague,    and my nearest kin stand far off. 12   Those who seek my life lay their snares;    those who seek my hurt speak of ruin    and meditate treachery all day long. 13   But I am like a deaf man; I do not hear,    like a mute man who does not open his mouth.14   I have become like a man who does not hear,    and in whose mouth are no rebukes. 15   But for you, O LORD, do I wait;    it is you, O Lord my God, who will answer.16   For I said, “Only let them not rejoice over me,    who boast against me when my foot slips!” 17   For I am ready to fall,    and my pain is ever before me.18   I confess my iniquity;    I am sorry for my sin.19   But my foes are vigorous, they are mighty,    and many are those who hate me wrongfully.20   Those who render me evil for good    accuse me because I follow after good. 21   Do not forsake me, O LORD!    O my God, be not far from me!22   Make haste to help me,    O Lord, my salvation! What Is the Measure of My Days? To the choirmaster: to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. 39   I said, “I will guard my ways,    that I may not sin with my tongue;  I will guard my mouth with a muzzle,    so long as the wicked are in my presence.”2   I was mute and silent;    I held my peace to no avail,  and my distress grew worse.3     My heart became hot within me.  As I mused, the fire burned;    then I spoke with my tongue: 4   “O LORD, make me know my end    and what is the measure of my days;    let me know how fleeting I am!5   Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths,    and my lifetime is as nothing before you.  Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah6     Surely a man goes about as a shadow!  Surely for nothing7 they are in turmoil;    man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather! 7   “And now, O Lord, for what do I wait?    My hope is in you.8   Deliver me from all my transgressions.    Do not make me the scorn of the fool!9   I am mute; I do not open my mouth,    for it is you who have done it.10   Remove your stroke from me;    I am spent by the hostility of your hand.11   When you discipline a man    with rebukes for sin,  you consume like a moth what is dear to him;    surely all mankind is a mere breath! Selah 12   “Hear my prayer, O LORD,    and give ear to my cry;    hold not your peace at my tears!  For I am a sojourner with you,    a guest, like all my fathers.13   Look away from me, that I may smile again,    before I depart and am no more!” Footnotes [1] 36:1 Some Hebrew manuscripts, Syriac, Jerome (compare Septuagint); most Hebrew manuscripts in my heart [2] 37:1 This psalm is an acrostic poem, each stanza beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet [3] 37:3 Or and feed on faithfulness, or and find safe pasture [4] 37:22 Hebrew by him [5] 37:35 The identity of this tree is uncertain [6] 37:36 Or But one passed by [7] 39:6 Hebrew Surely as a breath (ESV)

And Achish said to David, “Understand that you and your men are to go out with me in the army.” 2 David said to Achish, “Very well, you shall know what your servant can do.” And Achish said to David, “Very well, I will make you my bodyguard for life.” 3 Now Samuel had died, and all Israel had mourned for him and buried him in Ramah, his own city. And Saul had put the mediums and the necromancers out of the land. 4 The Philistines assembled and came and encamped at Shunem. And Saul gathered all Israel, and they encamped at Gilboa. 5 When Saul saw the army of the Philistines, he was afraid, and his heart trembled greatly. 6 And when Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD did not answer him, either by dreams, or by Urim, or by prophets. 7 Then Saul said to his servants, “Seek out for me a woman who is a medium, that I may go to her and inquire of her.” And his servants said to him, “Behold, there is a medium at En-dor.” 8 So Saul disguised himself and put on other garments and went, he and two men with him. And they came to the woman by night. And he said, “Divine for me by a spirit and bring up for me whomever I shall name to you.” 9 The woman said to him, “Surely you know what Saul has done, how he has cut off the mediums and the necromancers from the land. Why then are you laying a trap for my life to bring about my death?” 10 But Saul swore to her by the LORD, “As the LORD lives, no punishment shall come upon you for this thing.” 11 Then the woman said, “Whom shall I bring up for you?” He said, “Bring up Samuel for me.” 12 When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out with a loud voice. And the woman said to Saul, “Why have you deceived me? You are Saul.” 13 The king said to her, “Do not be afraid. What do you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see a god coming up out of the earth.” 14 He said to her, “What is his appearance?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is wrapped in a robe.” And Saul knew that it was Samuel, and he bowed with his face to the ground and paid homage. 15 Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” Saul answered, “I am in great distress, for the Philistines are warring against me, and God has turned away from me and answers me no more, either by prophets or by dreams. Therefore I have summoned you to tell me what I shall do.” 16 And Samuel said, “Why then do you ask me, since the LORD has turned from you and become your enemy? 17 The LORD has done to you as he spoke by me, for the LORD has torn the kingdom out of your hand and given it to your neighbor, David. 18 Because you did not obey the voice of the LORD and did not carry out his fierce wrath against Amalek, therefore the LORD has done this thing to you this day. 19 Moreover, the LORD will give Israel also with you into the hand of the Philistines, and tomorrow you and your sons shall be with me. The LORD will give the army of Israel also into the hand of the Philistines.” 20 Then Saul fell at once full length on the ground, filled with fear because of the words of Samuel. And there was no strength in him, for he had eaten nothing all day and all night. 21 And the woman came to Saul, and when she saw that he was terrified, she said to him, “Behold, your servant has obeyed you. I have taken my life in my hand and have listened to what you have said to me. 22 Now therefore, you also obey your servant. Let me set a morsel of bread before you; and eat, that you may have strength when you go on your way.” 23 He refused and said, “I will not eat.” But his servants, together with the woman, urged him, and he listened to their words. So he arose from the earth and sat on the bed. 24 Now the woman had a fattened calf in the house, and she quickly killed it, and she took flour and kneaded it and baked unleavened bread of it, 25 and she put it before Saul and his servants, and they ate. Then they rose and went away that night. (ESV) Chronicles and Prophets: Daniel 9 Daniel 9 (Listen) Daniel's Prayer for His People 9 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, by descent a Mede, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans—2 in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, perceived in the books the number of years that, according to the word of the LORD to Jeremiah the prophet, must pass before the end of the desolations of Jerusalem, namely, seventy years. 3 Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes. 4 I prayed to the LORD my God and made confession, saying, “O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, 5 we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules. 6 We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. 7 To you, O Lord, belongs righteousness, but to us open shame, as at this day, to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to all Israel, those who are near and those who are far away, in all the lands to which you have driven them, because of the treachery that they have committed against you. 8 To us, O LORD, belongs open shame, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you. 9 To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against him 10 and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God by walking in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets. 11 All Israel has transgressed your law and turned aside, refusing to obey your voice. And the curse and oath that are written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out upon us, because we have sinned against him. 12 He has confirmed his words, which he spoke against us and against our rulers who ruled us,1 by bringing upon us a great calamity. For under the whole heaven there has not been done anything like what has been done against Jerusalem. 13 As it is written in the Law of Moses, all this calamity has come upon us; yet we have not entreated the favor of the LORD our God, turning from our iniquities and gaining insight by your truth. 14 Therefore the LORD has kept ready the calamity and has brought it upon us, for the LORD our God is righteous in all the works that he has done, and we have not obeyed his voice. 15 And now, O Lord our God, who brought your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and have made a name for yourself, as at this day, we have sinned, we have done wickedly. 16 “O Lord, according to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, your holy hill, because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a byword among all who are around us. 17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord,2 make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18 O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. 19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.” Gabriel Brings an Answer 20 While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my plea before the LORD my God for the holy hill of my God, 21 while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the first, came to me in swift flight at the time of the evening sacrifice. 22 He made me understand, speaking with me and saying, “O Daniel, I have now come out to give you insight and understanding. 23 At the beginning of your pleas for mercy a word went out, and I have come to tell it to you, for you are greatly loved. Therefore consider the word and understand the vision. The Seventy Weeks 24 “Seventy weeks3 are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place.4 25 Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again5 with squares and moat, but in a troubled time. 26 And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its6 end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed. 27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week,7 and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.” Footnotes [1] 9:12 Or our judges who judged us [2] 9:17 Hebrew for the Lord's sake [3] 9:24 Or sevens; also twice in verse 25 and once in verse 26 [4] 9:24 Or thing, or one [5] 9:25 Or there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks. It shall be built again [6] 9:26 Or His [7] 9:27 Or seven; twice in this verse (ESV) Gospels and Epistles: Luke 6:17–49 Luke 6:17–49 (Listen) Jesus Ministers to a Great Multitude 17 And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, 18 who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. And those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. 19 And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came out from him and healed them all. The Beatitudes 20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 “Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. “Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. 22 “Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you and revile you and spurn your name as evil, on account of the Son of Man! 23 Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets. Jesus Pronounces Woes 24 “But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. 25 “Woe to you who are full now, for you shall be hungry. “Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep. 26 “Woe to you, when all people speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets. Love Your Enemies 27 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. 29 To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic1 either. 30 Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. 31 And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them. 32 “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. 35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. 36 Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. Judging Others 37 “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; 38 give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” 39 He also told them a parable: “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? 40 A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher. 41 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 42 How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye. A Tree and Its Fruit 43 “For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit, 44 for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush. 45 The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. Build Your House on the Rock 46 “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you? 47 Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: 48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.2 49 But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.” Footnotes [1] 6:29 Greek chiton, a long garment worn under the cloak next to the skin [2] 6:48 Some manuscripts founded upon the rock (ESV)

UBM Unleavened Bread Ministries

Ministering Angels Through UBM (8) (Audio) David Eells - 9/7/22   Crucifixion and Resurrection of the Man-child   Father Said, “Continue in Sacrificial Living Unto Him." Debbie Fenske - 8/17/22 (David's notes in red)   I prayed, and feel the Lord okayed me to share this.  I was meditating on Rom. 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service. And during the night, The Lord led me in praying that we would have a “changed” sacrificial aroma unto Him even after these 8 days, as we continue daily in sacrificial living unto Him. And He said, “Be sure not to go back into old habits, but love Me and one another.” (The angel, Jeruel, said that the new method of worship should also continue on after the 8 days and we have done that and are seeing the fruit.)   After that, two times throughout the night, as I would finally start to drift off to sleep, I was awakened hearing a word spoken, very clearly.  The first time, I heard “Coronation”, and the 2nd time I heard, “Revival”. This morning the Lord said, “Be sure to not go back to your old habits, but loving, and serving Me and one another.” (So after the 8th day stay in close relationship to the Lord and the crucified life and then the crowning of Jesus in the Man-child comes and the revival that results from that. Jesus the Man-child started the revival in His day. Woo Hoo !! Eve said she had heard this very same message that Debbie received, spoken to her the same morning of 8/17/22.)     UBM is at the Red Sea Now Eve Brast - 9/2/22 (David's notes in red)   I dreamed that all of local and larger UBM who had obeyed Father's commands for the 8 day fast and the “last century Book of Acts Church" were gathered at the edge of the Red Sea. Those who had forsaken all the ways of Egypt and had completely come out into the wilderness were gathered there. No one had anything with them except their clothes. Everyone was dressed like Israelites of old in clothing that was in different shades of blue. (The shades of blue represent being dressed up in heavenly works.) (I only saw men in the dream because my view of the people didn't extend beyond those that were closest to the rock that David and I were standing on. I didn't see women or children in the dream.)    Their numbers weren't in the thousands but only a few hundred. (I asked the Lord what the few hundred (or 300) that were next to the Red Sea represented and I heard, “The Sword of the Lord and of Gideon.” I believe they represent those who aren't fearful to engage in the battle and also those that the Lord has tried at the water's edge. These are the over-comers who have obeyed the Lord and not their flesh. Jud. 7:2-14)(This could be the men of leadership under the Man-child David's who are prepared for the wilderness tribulation before the Church arrives. Gideon was a type of the Man-child and his 300 tested men who blew the shofars and broke the pitchers were a type of the leadership of the Bride, the disciples/apostles. These went out to conquer the enemies for God's people.  "The sword of the Lord and of Gideon!" was a powerful and exciting announcement of the beginning of the battle to divide and scatter the demonic enemies of UBM and the David ministries. This announcement signaled the breaking of the clay pitcher, representing the flesh, so the torch, as the light of God's life and Word, could shine out. This made it possible for the Shofar, symbolizing the "breath", which in Hebrew is the same word for "Spirit", to be audible in the physical realm. This is the true prophetic Word of God which is spoken to bring every victory. This is the "Sword of the Lord and of Gideon" to scatter the demonic enemy.) The waters of the Red Sea were calm at the moment and it was dark out but, I could see everything by the bright light of the moon. I was standing on top of a large rock that was near the water's edge observing the whole scene and I was dressed in some type of sheer material that was flowing and full of wind although everything else around was still.  I saw David, representing the David Man-child reformers, on the same rock further down, closer to the people. He was speaking with some of the men who were closest to the rock's edge. David was dressed in modern blue jeans and a light blue colored, short sleeved, Polo shirt. (What? No suit! Lol.)   Egypt was behind us, at our backs. There was no danger from enemies or fear that they were going to trap us there in the dream. Everyone was at peace and waiting on the Lord. (I suppose they were waiting for the rest of the Church to show up so we could all cross the Red Sea together and see their enemies decimated in time for the tribulation.)   Then the voice of God spoke out of heaven to David and all the people from the direction that was between us and Egypt. He said, “These are My people who have obeyed all of My commands and have left Egypt behind to follow Me into the wilderness. I will provide for your every need from now on. I have scattered and defeated your enemies and they are no longer any threat to you. (This is true of the first fruits Man-child and Bride but not yet true of the remaining Church.) Do NOT look back towards Egypt. Do not heed the voice of man or pay attention to their leavened speech. Do not look to their ways or consider their lies and their deceptions. You will hearken unto My voice alone and be led by My Spirit alone.” Then I woke up.   Father continued to speak to me after I woke up, "No other information or direction of man pertains to you. My ways are above their ways and My sons hear and consider My voice alone. Continue to put away the devices of Egypt that bring distraction and separation from Me and My Spirit. Cast down and reject all the voices of vanity, deception, and the reasonings of men that cause you to err in your minds and dull your hearing and your understanding. What I Am doing with My Bride and for My people has nothing to do with the vain plans or ways of men. Only My purposes will succeed. Only My plans will stand.   I will cause you to walk above this earth in My heavenly places. You are not on their timeline, nor are you subject to the things of this world or the wicked plans of men who don't consider Me or call upon Me. I will be your All in All; your only source and provision in My wilderness, for the wilderness and everything in it belongs to Me and not to wicked men. Refrain from looking backward and going backward only to meet with the same destruction as Lot's wife, for you ARE in the days of Lot. Destruction is coming quickly to Sodom and Gomorrah.    This is it. Only those who completely divorce themselves from Egypt and climb the mountain to remain continually in My presence will be hidden. The rest will fall in this wilderness tribulation due to the wavering of their faith, a lack of obedience and succumbing to their enemies. You will no longer be as the Israelites of old who refused to climb the mountain with Moses, to come into My presence and hear My Words for fear of death. Everyone will climb the mountain and enter into My presence and hear My voice and My Spirit.   Ask of Me all things that pertain to your lives and godliness and I will give it to you in abundance. I Am for you and I wish that none of you perish. Hold fast to My promises and don't be slack to perform all that I have commanded you through My messengers. My peace will rest upon you and great success will be yours, in your obedience, as you continue to seek My face and draw close to Me.”   Sign of David Man-child, Crucifixion and Resurrection David Eells - 9/1/22   I tried to call Shalonda and her number was not in my phone. I checked my contacts and her name was in there 5 times but there was no contact information there.    So I took the first name and put her phone number in it.  I deleted the next one and when I went to delete the third name my phone reacted immediately and went dark. (So the third delete was "in the midst” of the 5, which is grace”)  With the totally black screen of death I thought whoever deleted my contact info had now deleted my phone through that middle name. I found myself saying, “I am cut off from UBM”. “Cut off” is a scriptural term meaning death.    Then I remembered the angel telling us I would be crucified. And Marilyn had a dream that I was crucified below. Eve and Lakeisha got the same verse in two different gospels that I had been crucified, also below.     When I deleted the Shalonda name and my phone went dead and black. What immediately came out of my mouth was, “I am 'cut off' from UBM”. Immediately, I thought of our Man-child Jesus being "cut off" as a type of the Man-child, in our day, being "cut off” in death.   Isa 53:7  He was oppressed, yet when he was afflicted he opened not his mouth; as a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. 8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who among them considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke was due?   Dan 9:26-27 And after the threescore and two weeks shall the anointed one be cut off, and shall have nothing: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and even unto the end shall be war; desolations are determined. 27 And he shall make a firm covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one that maketh desolate; and even unto the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate.   Knowing, years ago, that I was coming to a crucifixion one day, I asked the Lord if my crucifixion at the hand of all the Judas' since 2011 would count for my crucifixion and there would be no need for a terrible crucifixion attack at the end? He gave me a YES by two heads as confirmation.   So this all happened on 9-1-22, and I was thinking, since this "cutting off day" signifies the death of the Man-child, what will happen on the third day, 9-4? The resurrection of the Man-child body? My next question to the Lord was, Is this a sign of something to come or a sign of what is happening NOW?   I asked Eve to ask the Lord, "After 3 days What? Lord is this the manifestation of the Man-child's death? On the third day will there be a manifestation of the Man-child's resurrection? Will the throne anointing manifest then?"   On 9/1/22: Eve said, "I asked Father to please answer these questions for David.”  Father said, “This is yet another sign of the coming fulfillment of My plans and promises to you.”   As we shall see below, LaKeisha Watson and Eve Brast got the same verses about David's crucifixion on 8/15/22.   LaKeisha said, "I would like to share a small thing that happened to me today.  As I was reading Mark 15:39, David accidently called me at 10:10 am. The part of that verse I had  just finished reading said, "Truly this man was the Son of God." (Footnote in the ASV says, "a son of God” and this is what the Roman soldier would have said.). (This is being used because Jesus said, Whatsoever you've done to the least of these My disciples; you've done it unto Me. And Paul said you are all sons of God through faith. Also a Roman soldier would have said this.)  He mentioned that Eve had also gotten the same words. I took it that Father was saying that David is indeed one of His sons.    Eve replied, “This totally confirms the word I received for him back in mid-July in Mat.27:54, (My finger was on the underlined phrase.) "Now the centurion, and they that were with him watching Jesus, when they saw the earthquake, and the things that were done, feared exceedingly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.” (or a son of God, as above)   Then we had our morning meeting when we ask for verses by faith at random and none of the saints knew of my revelation when they got their verses, we got many confirmations. Now I'm going to overwhelm you with evidence that God is speaking here of the death and resurrection of the Man-child David's:   Don.  Psa 22:1-8  A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Spoken by The Man-child Jesus on the cross) Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning? ... 6 But I am a worm, and no man; A reproach of men, and despised of the people. (So they cried, "Crucify Him") 7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, 8  Commit thyself unto Jehovah; let him deliver him: Let him rescue him, seeing he delighteth in him. (This was said by the apostate leadership when the Man-child Jesus was on the cross)    Barry. Luk 24:21-26 But we hoped that it was he who should redeem Israel. Yea and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things came to pass. 22 Moreover certain women of our company amazed us, having been early at the tomb; 23 and when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive. 24 And certain of them that were with us went to the tomb, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not. 25 And he said unto them, O foolish men, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Behooved it not the Christ to suffer these things, and to enter into his glory?   Matt  Mar 16:1-4 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2 And very early on the first day of the week, they come to the tomb when the sun was risen. 3 And they were saying among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the tomb? 4 and looking up, they see that the stone is rolled back: for it was exceeding great.   Winnie. Rom 5:6-11 For while we were yet weak, in due season Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: for peradventure for the good man some one would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his own love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, shall we be saved from the wrath of God through him. 10 For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, shall we be saved by his life; 11 and not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.   Brandy. Joh 21:20 Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; who also leaned back on his breast at the supper, and said, Lord, who is he that betrayeth thee? (The Factious Judas' will die when the Man-child's die to self, as it was with Jesus.)   Amber.  Mat 21:33-41 Hear another parable: There was a man that was a householder, who planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into another country. 34 And when the season of the fruits drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, to receive his fruits. 35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them in like manner. 37 But afterward he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. 38 But the husbandmen, when they saw the son, said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and take his inheritance. 39 And they took him, and cast him forth out of the vineyard, and killed him. 40 When therefore the lord of the vineyard shall come, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those miserable men, and will let out the vineyard unto other husbandmen, who shall render him the fruits in their seasons.     David's Final Crucifixion  Marilyn Klinke - 8/22/22    I had a very brief dream. I knew that I was at Calvary with other people who were standing around (like spectators) and that David was about to be crucified. I didn't see him, but I knew that they were just about to nail him to the cross. End of dream     The Factious Judas' are Exposed Claire Pienaar - 8/18/22 (David's notes in red)   I had a quick dream on August 18th that David and I were in a pantry that was actually a shed at the back of his or my home. He was cleaning out rats from under a wine vat or barrel that he was using for storage. (This wine vat, representing the blood or nature of Jesus, is our message to the world of true Christianity. It is stored just as our granaries store the seed of the kingdom for the day appointed because they are for the anointed Man-child. The rats are the factious Judas' who crucify the Man-child.)   I was waiting for David to command healing into a woman, who in the dream, had gone through 4 miscarriages. (The Church is not bringing the fruit of Jesus to fruition, because they don't know the real Gospel.) David was really busy with these rats though. One rat got away, and the other he was busy with. (The angels said the factious leaders were not yet physically dead but the time was coming. This is because Judas died after he betrayed Jesus the Man-child. Judas will die somewhere close to when the Man-child dies.)   I was holding on to David's arm, waiting for him to stop with the rats so he could help me command healing into this lady. (We cannot help the lady Church bear fruit while the rats are doing their thing, which is the harlot that kept Joseph in prison, which I mentioned in the praise meeting. The faction has attacked everyone who mentions my name or the ministry's name to destroy them. Anyone who posted anything about us on the net was attacked by slander and witchcraft. The rats were the danger under the wine vat. So we couldn't pull the wine or grain out of storage in any significant way until God's time and they were done in and that is when Joseph came out of prison. Now comes the Man-child who uses the wine and the grain to build the people of God into the temple.)   It reminded me of a dream I had from a few weeks back where David was in the same shed at the back of his house, cleaning out a single rat. (This would be the last one that temporarily escaped, probably the current factious leader. We had a dream of him going to hell and that would be when the Man-child is spiritually crucified.)     The dreams we have had show the faction throwing witchcraft curses at us and the angels throwing them back. The angels just told us that they are covered with these curses they sent. One of these curses was an invasion of millipedes under our house and deck which we came against by faith.   (Eve said, “When I was at David's house, I saw a vision of a giant demon 10 feet tall standing at the back deck next to the bird feeder. (I later found out his name was, “Lorgonus”.) He had white eyes like he was blind and had a large barrel shaped chest and skinny arms and legs. He had his claws raised up like he was going to get us and a large, gaping, toothless mouth. He was covered with large millipedes swarming all over him and mice and frogs hopping and crawling over him as well as wasps etc. So David and Michael said we should go out and command the demon by name to leave and take all his pests with him. So we did and now he's gone with his millipedes!      The Black Birds Standing in the Way of Our Promises Winnie Osegueda - 8/20/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamt that I was in a house that I do not recognize, but it seems that I lived there. I believe that I was in the kitchen of this house and there was a small window with pale, red swinging shutters attached. A couple of birds flew in, but the one that I remember specifically was a large black bird with two red stripes on each side of it's head.    (This could represent anarchy. The red stripes could represent sin in the Bible where it speaks of sin like crimson. I also think it's possible the bird's double stripes on each side of its head could represent the sin of double-mindedness.)    When the shutters flew open from the bird(s) having entered, I could see a large beautiful, Scarlet Macaw parrot right outside of the window, locked up in a medium bird cage. (Scarlet Macaws in my dreams represent God's promises to me, as He's used it symbolically in this way before, because when I was younger I asked the Lord for this very specific parrot. And in a dream, several years later, He sent me this bird in a gift box. The colors of this specific parrot remind me of Joseph's coat of many colors. (Just before the Man-child Joseph comes out of prison to rule, the black bird returns.) Also, parrots repeat what we say, so it reminds me of believing and speaking only God's promises over our lives in order to see it come to fruition.) As I saw the black bird come in and land on a perch, I said out loud "Oh, one of the factious women that used to fellowship with UBM has returned.” (We have dreams that this will happen. Also this likely represents a larger scenario where the elect who were deceived by the factious leaders return as we have also seen in dreams.)When we met yesterday at the park pavilion, I told the Lord to confirm this dream by having someone mention the factious woman's name, and, sure enough, Eve brought her name up momentarily.I asked Chuc to get me a verse by faith at random and he received:  Psalm 112:10  The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; He shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: The desire of the wicked shall perish.     David Man-child's Dip Their Boots in Living Water Isaac Payne - 8/19/22 (David's notes in red)   I had a short dream last night and it was very quick to the point. In this dream I was at David's house. I'm not sure if I was there physically or just witnessing it in the Spirit. I saw David Eells, as a type of the Man-child, walking into his house in the country. His house was surrounded by tall luscious trees. The way the trees surrounded his house was all encompassing on all sides other than the entrance. The entrance of the house had a lot of natural sunlight. (Son Light.)    I watched David walk up the porch into his house. He was wearing tall water proof boots. (I think the water proof boots symbolize his immunity from the curse that is in the water of the Word of God. 2 Pet. 3:5-7 For this they willfully forget, that there were heavens from of old, and an earth compacted out of water, and admidst water, by the word of God; 6 by which means the world then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens that now are, and the earth, by the same word have been stored up for fire being reserved against the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.)    It seemed David was going inside his house after a long day of work. (Mat. 9:37-38 Then saith He to his disciples, the harvest is indeed plenteous, but the laborers are few. 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth laborers into his harvest. I believe this represents David as a laborer for the kingdom.)    Next to the foundation of his house was a small stream. It was located directly next to the brick foundation of his house. (Mat. 7:24-25 Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on a rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.)    It was a stream with a rock bed that had flowing water that was crystal clear. (John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water. I believe this verse sums the dream up. David's house is his temple on a rock foundation. The Word, Jesus, in him creates streams of living water.)    I knew the waters were cold and refreshing. It wasn't as some streams that do not have stones, but instead are dirt and make muddy water. This had stones on both sides of the stream and in the bottom. The water was maybe a foot deep, but flowing beautifully.     David walked up the front porch and before entering his house he dipped his boots into the flowing stream. His boots looked spotless and brand new and the stream had no dirt or filthy residue. It was just perfect and crystal clear. David looked at me with a smile on his face and said, "I like that!" He then walked inside his house and I woke up. (Rom. 10:14-15 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 and how shall they preach, except they be sent? even as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things!)   Isa 41:27  I am the first that saith unto Zion, Behold, behold them; and I will give to Jerusalem one that bringeth good tidings. Isa 40:9  O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion, get thee up on a high mountain; O thou that tellest good tidings to Jerusalem, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold, your God! 10  Behold, the Lord Jehovah will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him: Behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. 11  He will feed his flock like a shepherd, he will gather the lambs in his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and will gently lead those that have their young.  Isa 52:7  How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace, that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation, that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! 8  The voice of thy watchmen! they lift up the voice, together do they sing; for they shall see eye to eye, when Jehovah returneth to Zion.   Select Language Afrikaans Albanian Amharic Arabic Armenian Assamese Aymara Azerbaijani Bambara Basque Belarusian Bengali Bhojpuri Bosnian Bulgarian Catalan Cebuano Chichewa Chinese (Simplified) Chinese (Traditional) Corsican Croatian Czech Danish Dhivehi Dogri Dutch Esperanto Estonian Ewe Filipino Finnish French Frisian Galician Georgian German Greek Guarani Gujarati Haitian Creole Hausa Hawaiian Hebrew Hindi Hmong Hungarian Icelandic Igbo Ilocano Indonesian Irish Italian Japanese Javanese Kannada Kazakh Khmer Kinyarwanda Konkani Korean Krio Kurdish (Kurmanji) Kurdish (Sorani) Kyrgyz Lao Latin Latvian Lingala Lithuanian Luganda Luxembourgish Macedonian Maithili Malagasy Malay Malayalam Maltese Maori Marathi Meiteilon (Manipuri) Mizo Mongolian Myanmar (Burmese) Nepali Norwegian Odia (Oriya) Oromo Pashto Persian Polish Portuguese Punjabi Quechua Romanian Russian Samoan Sanskrit Scots Gaelic Sepedi Serbian Sesotho Shona Sindhi Sinhala Slovak Slovenian Somali Spanish Sundanese Swahili Swedish Tajik Tamil Tatar Telugu Thai Tigrinya Tsonga Turkish Turkmen Twi Ukrainian Urdu Uyghur Uzbek Vietnamese Welsh Xhosa Yiddish Yoruba Zulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version

Proper 17 First Psalm: Psalm 37:1–18 Psalm 37:1–18 (Listen) He Will Not Forsake His Saints 1 Of David. 37   Fret not yourself because of evildoers;    be not envious of wrongdoers!2   For they will soon fade like the grass    and wither like the green herb. 3   Trust in the LORD, and do good;    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.24   Delight yourself in the LORD,    and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5   Commit your way to the LORD;    trust in him, and he will act.6   He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,    and your justice as the noonday. 7   Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;    fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,    over the man who carries out evil devices! 8   Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!    Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.9   For the evildoers shall be cut off,    but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land. 10   In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;    though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.11   But the meek shall inherit the land    and delight themselves in abundant peace. 12   The wicked plots against the righteous    and gnashes his teeth at him,13   but the Lord laughs at the wicked,    for he sees that his day is coming. 14   The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows    to bring down the poor and needy,    to slay those whose way is upright;15   their sword shall enter their own heart,    and their bows shall be broken. 16   Better is the little that the righteous has    than the abundance of many wicked.17   For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,    but the LORD upholds the righteous. 18   The LORD knows the days of the blameless,    and their heritage will remain forever; Footnotes [1] 37:1 This psalm is an acrostic poem, each stanza beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet [2] 37:3 Or and feed on faithfulness, or and find safe pasture (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalm 37:19–40 Psalm 37:19–40 (Listen) 19   they are not put to shame in evil times;    in the days of famine they have abundance. 20   But the wicked will perish;    the enemies of the LORD are like the glory of the pastures;    they vanish—like smoke they vanish away. 21   The wicked borrows but does not pay back,    but the righteous is generous and gives;22   for those blessed by the LORD1 shall inherit the land,    but those cursed by him shall be cut off. 23   The steps of a man are established by the LORD,    when he delights in his way;24   though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,    for the LORD upholds his hand. 25   I have been young, and now am old,    yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken    or his children begging for bread.26   He is ever lending generously,    and his children become a blessing. 27   Turn away from evil and do good;    so shall you dwell forever.28   For the LORD loves justice;    he will not forsake his saints.  They are preserved forever,    but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.29   The righteous shall inherit the land    and dwell upon it forever. 30   The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,    and his tongue speaks justice.31   The law of his God is in his heart;    his steps do not slip. 32   The wicked watches for the righteous    and seeks to put him to death.33   The LORD will not abandon him to his power    or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial. 34   Wait for the LORD and keep his way,    and he will exalt you to inherit the land;    you will look on when the wicked are cut off. 35   I have seen a wicked, ruthless man,    spreading himself like a green laurel tree.236   But he passed away,3 and behold, he was no more;    though I sought him, he could not be found. 37   Mark the blameless and behold the upright,    for there is a future for the man of peace.38   But transgressors shall be altogether destroyed;    the future of the wicked shall be cut off. 39   The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;    he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.40   The LORD helps them and delivers them;    he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,    because they take refuge in him.

Is rest to be found together in the dust? (ESV) New Testament: Acts 13:1–12 Acts 13:1–12 (Listen) Barnabas and Saul Sent Off 13 Now there were in the church at Antioch prophets and teachers, Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger,1 Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a lifelong friend of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off. Barnabas and Saul on Cyprus 4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus. 5 When they arrived at Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. And they had John to assist them. 6 When they had gone through the whole island as far as Paphos, they came upon a certain magician, a Jewish false prophet named Bar-Jesus. 7 He was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, a man of intelligence, who summoned Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. 8 But Elymas the magician (for that is the meaning of his name) opposed them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. 9 But Saul, who was also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him 10 and said, “You son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord? 11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and unable to see the sun for a time.” Immediately mist and darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking people to lead him by the hand. 12 Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had occurred, for he was astonished at the teaching of the Lord. Footnotes [1] 13:1 Niger is a Latin word meaning black, or dark (ESV) Gospel: John 9:1–17 John 9:1–17 (Listen) Jesus Heals a Man Born Blind 9 As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” 3 Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. 4 We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” 6 Having said these things, he spit on the ground and made mud with the saliva. Then he anointed the man's eyes with the mud 7 and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means Sent). So he went and washed and came back seeing. 8 The neighbors and those who had seen him before as a beggar were saying, “Is this not the man who used to sit and beg?” 9 Some said, “It is he.” Others said, “No, but he is like him.” He kept saying, “I am the man.” 10 So they said to him, “Then how were your eyes opened?” 11 He answered, “The man called Jesus made mud and anointed my eyes and said to me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash.' So I went and washed and received my sight.” 12 They said to him, “Where is he?” He said, “I do not know.” 13 They brought to the Pharisees the man who had formerly been blind. 14 Now it was a Sabbath day when Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes. 15 So the Pharisees again asked him how he had received his sight. And he said to them, “He put mud on my eyes, and I washed, and I see.” 16 Some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, for he does not keep the Sabbath.” But others said, “How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?” And there was a division among them. 17 So they said again to the blind man, “What do you say about him, since he has opened your eyes?” He said, “He is a prophet.” (ESV)

August 30 2022 Tuesday Week 23 A Study In Romans Help Build Everyone Up In Him Ephesians 1:15-23 NLT  'Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God's people everywhere, I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God's power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God's right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.'  Ephesians 3:14-21 NLT 'When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.'

It is caused by things that have no business in Christianity like pride, hate, and jealousy. We are to love others as ourselves, but strife does not do that. It destroys families, friendships, churches, and marriages. Refrain from anger and keep love because love covers all wrongs.  Never hold a grudge with someone which can hinder your relationship with the Lord. Even if it wasn't your fault if you have something against someone kindly and humbly talk it out and reconcile your friendship. What does the Bible say? 1. Proverbs 17:1 Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife. 2. Proverbs 20:3 Avoiding strife brings a man honor, but every fool is quarrelsome. 3. Proverbs 17:14 Starting a quarrel is like letting out water; stop it before strife breaks out! 4. Proverbs 17:19-20 He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction. He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief. 5. Proverbs 18:6-7 The lips of fools bring them strife, and their mouths invite a beating. The mouths of fools are their undoing, and their lips are a snare to their very lives. 6. 2 Timothy 2:22-23 Stay away from lusts which tempt young people. Pursue what has God's approval. Pursue faith, love, and peace together with those who worship the Lord with a pure heart. Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments. You know they cause quarrels. 7.  Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. Warning 8. Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. What causes strife?  9. James 4:1 What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don't they come from the evil desires at war within you? 10. Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up trouble, but love forgives all wrongs. 11. Proverbs 13:9-10 The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out. Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice. 12. Proverbs 28:25 A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the LORD will be enriched. 13. Proverbs 15:18 A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife. 14. Proverbs 16:28 A troublemaker plants seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends.  Put others before yourself 15. Philippians 2:3 -4 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 16. Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. Reminders 17. Proverbs 22:10 Drive out a scoffer, and strife will go out, and quarreling and abuse will cease. 18. Romans 1:28-29 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips. 19. Proverbs 26:20 Fire goes out without wood, and quarrels disappear when gossip stops. 20. Proverbs 26:17 He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears. Strife is associated with false teachers in the Bible. 21. 1 Timothy 6:3-5 If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching,they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain. Examples 22. Habakkuk 1:2-4 O Lord, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save! Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention. Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth. 23. Psalm 55:8-10 “I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.” Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words, for I see violence and strife in the city. Day and night they prowl about on its walls; 24. Isaiah 58:4 Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife, and in striking each other with wicked fists. You cannot fast as you do today and expect your voice to be heard on high. 25. Genesis 13:5-9 And Lot, who went with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents, so that the land could not support both of them dwelling together; for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together, and there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram's livestock and the herdsmen of Lot's livestock. At that time the Canaanites and the Perizzites were dwelling in the land. Then Abram said to Lot, “Let there be no strife between you and me, and between your herdsmen and my herdsmen, for we are kinsmen. Is not the whole land before you? Separate yourself from me. If you take the left hand, then I will go to the right, or if you take the right hand, then I will go to the left.

Many are struggling with mental health. But if you're in a relationship, or the parent of a child with mental illness, you should be considering your mental health as well. The Helper Needs Help - and that includes you!Your job is to love. You can't be your spouse's or family member's therapist. You can't solve their problems.  Peter, in 1 Peter 4 says, "Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything." And to be that helper to others you must remember to love yourself, take care of yourself, create and maintain good boundaries. And if they become abusive, it might also mean that you get out!The person who is diagnosed may actually feel some relief to be able to put a name to what they're going through. Or they may feel embarrassed. Communication is critical - which above all means listen to understand. It could be the greatest gift you give to one who is struggling.You may need to become increasingly flexible as you navigate their mental illness. You may have to assume more financial responsibilities, do more of the parenting, or running the household. If this is you, it is even more important to remember that you need to care for yourself as you do more. Do what you can: sleep, eating well, socializing, engaging in activities you enjoy. Find small carveouts to nurture your soul. You can't rescue the drowning man if you too are drowning.Refrain from diagnosing your loved one. Let the professionals do what they do what you focus on being a great spouse, parent or friend.If you are a support person for one with mental illness, consider sources of support that you need. Burnout is common for caregivers. And you can't give what you don't have. God says, "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly.” {Matt. 11-28-30, The Message].

With family: 1 Samuel 21–22; 1 Corinthians 3 1 Samuel 21–22 (Listen) David and the Holy Bread 21 1 Then David came to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest. And Ahimelech came to meet David, trembling, and said to him, “Why are you alone, and no one with you?” 2 And David said to Ahimelech the priest, “The king has charged me with a matter and said to me, ‘Let no one know anything of the matter about which I send you, and with which I have charged you.' I have made an appointment with the young men for such and such a place. 3 Now then, what do you have on hand? Give me five loaves of bread, or whatever is here.” 4 And the priest answered David, “I have no common bread on hand, but there is holy bread—if the young men have kept themselves from women.” 5 And David answered the priest, “Truly women have been kept from us as always when I go on an expedition. The vessels of the young men are holy even when it is an ordinary journey. How much more today will their vessels be holy?” 6 So the priest gave him the holy bread, for there was no bread there but the bread of the Presence, which is removed from before the LORD, to be replaced by hot bread on the day it is taken away. 7 Now a certain man of the servants of Saul was there that day, detained before the LORD. His name was Doeg the Edomite, the chief of Saul's herdsmen. 8 Then David said to Ahimelech, “Then have you not here a spear or a sword at hand? For I have brought neither my sword nor my weapons with me, because the king's business required haste.” 9 And the priest said, “The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you struck down in the Valley of Elah, behold, it is here wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod. If you will take that, take it, for there is none but that here.” And David said, “There is none like that; give it to me.” David Flees to Gath 10 And David rose and fled that day from Saul and went to Achish the king of Gath. 11 And the servants of Achish said to him, “Is not this David the king of the land? Did they not sing to one another of him in dances,   ‘Saul has struck down his thousands,    and David his ten thousands'?” 12 And David took these words to heart and was much afraid of Achish the king of Gath. 13 So he changed his behavior before them and pretended to be insane in their hands and made marks on the doors of the gate and let his spittle run down his beard. 14 Then Achish said to his servants, “Behold, you see the man is mad. Why then have you brought him to me? 15 Do I lack madmen, that you have brought this fellow to behave as a madman in my presence? Shall this fellow come into my house?” David at the Cave of Adullam 22 David departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam. And when his brothers and all his father's house heard it, they went down there to him. 2 And everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was bitter in soul,2 gathered to him. And he became commander over them. And there were with him about four hundred men. 3 And David went from there to Mizpeh of Moab. And he said to the king of Moab, “Please let my father and my mother stay3 with you, till I know what God will do for me.” 4 And he left them with the king of Moab, and they stayed with him all the time that David was in the stronghold. 5 Then the prophet Gad said to David, “Do not remain in the stronghold; depart, and go into the land of Judah.” So David departed and went into the forest of Hereth. Saul Kills the Priests at Nob 6 Now Saul heard that David was discovered, and the men who were with him. Saul was sitting at Gibeah under the tamarisk tree on the height with his spear in his hand, and all his servants were standing about him. 7 And Saul said to his servants who stood about him, “Hear now, people of Benjamin; will the son of Jesse give every one of you fields and vineyards, will he make you all commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds, 8 that all of you have conspired against me? No one discloses to me when my son makes a covenant with the son of Jesse. None of you is sorry for me or discloses to me that my son has stirred up my servant against me, to lie in wait, as at this day.” 9 Then answered Doeg the Edomite, who stood by the servants of Saul, “I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, 10 and he inquired of the LORD for him and gave him provisions and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine.” 11 Then the king sent to summon Ahimelech the priest, the son of Ahitub, and all his father's house, the priests who were at Nob, and all of them came to the king. 12 And Saul said, “Hear now, son of Ahitub.” And he answered, “Here I am, my lord.” 13 And Saul said to him, “Why have you conspired against me, you and the son of Jesse, in that you have given him bread and a sword and have inquired of God for him, so that he has risen against me, to lie in wait, as at this day?” 14 Then Ahimelech answered the king, “And who among all your servants is so faithful as David, who is the king's son-in-law, and captain over4 your bodyguard, and honored in your house? 15 Is today the first time that I have inquired of God for him? No! Let not the king impute anything to his servant or to all the house of my father, for your servant has known nothing of all this, much or little.” 16 And the king said, “You shall surely die, Ahimelech, you and all your father's house.” 17 And the king said to the guard who stood about him, “Turn and kill the priests of the LORD, because their hand also is with David, and they knew that he fled and did not disclose it to me.” But the servants of the king would not put out their hand to strike the priests of the LORD. 18 Then the king said to Doeg, “You turn and strike the priests.” And Doeg the Edomite turned and struck down the priests, and he killed on that day eighty-five persons who wore the linen ephod. 19 And Nob, the city of the priests, he put to the sword; both man and woman, child and infant, ox, donkey and sheep, he put to the sword. 20 But one of the sons of Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, named Abiathar, escaped and fled after David. 21 And Abiathar told David that Saul had killed the priests of the LORD. 22 And David said to Abiathar, “I knew on that day, when Doeg the Edomite was there, that he would surely tell Saul. I have occasioned the death of all the persons of your father's house. 23 Stay with me; do not be afraid, for he who seeks my life seeks your life. With me you shall be in safekeeping.” Footnotes [1] 21:1 Ch 21:2 in Hebrew [2] 22:2 Or discontented [3] 22:3 Syriac, Vulgate; Hebrew go out [4] 22:14 Septuagint, Targum; Hebrew and has turned aside to (ESV) 1 Corinthians 3 (Listen) Divisions in the Church 3 But I, brothers,1 could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready, 3 for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way? 4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not being merely human? 5 What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. 9 For we are God's fellow workers. You are God's field, God's building. 10 According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled2 master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. 11 For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw—13 each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. 14 If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire. 16 Do you not know that you3 are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? 17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple. 18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness,” 20 and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.” 21 So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, 23 and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's. Footnotes [1] 3:1 Or brothers and sisters [2] 3:10 Or wise [3] 3:16 The Greek for you is plural in verses 16 and 17 (ESV) In private: Psalm 37; Ezekiel 1 Psalm 37 (Listen) He Will Not Forsake His Saints 1 Of David. 37   Fret not yourself because of evildoers;    be not envious of wrongdoers!2   For they will soon fade like the grass    and wither like the green herb. 3   Trust in the LORD, and do good;    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.24   Delight yourself in the LORD,    and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5   Commit your way to the LORD;    trust in him, and he will act.6   He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,    and your justice as the noonday. 7   Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;    fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,    over the man who carries out evil devices! 8   Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!    Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.9   For the evildoers shall be cut off,    but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land. 10   In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;    though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.11   But the meek shall inherit the land    and delight themselves in abundant peace. 12   The wicked plots against the righteous    and gnashes his teeth at him,13   but the Lord laughs at the wicked,    for he sees that his day is coming. 14   The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows    to bring down the poor and needy,    to slay those whose way is upright;15   their sword shall enter their own heart,    and their bows shall be broken. 16   Better is the little that the righteous has    than the abundance of many wicked.17   For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,    but the LORD upholds the righteous. 18   The LORD knows the days of the blameless,    and their heritage will remain forever;19   they are not put to shame in evil times;    in the days of famine they have abundance. 20   But the wicked will perish;    the enemies of the LORD are like the glory of the pastures;    they vanish—like smoke they vanish away. 21   The wicked borrows but does not pay back,    but the righteous is generous and gives;22   for those blessed by the LORD3 shall inherit the land,    but those cursed by him shall be cut off. 23   The steps of a man are established by the LORD,    when he delights in his way;24   though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,    for the LORD upholds his hand. 25   I have been young, and now am old,    yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken    or his children begging for bread.26   He is ever lending generously,    and his children become a blessing. 27   Turn away from evil and do good;    so shall you dwell forever.28   For the LORD loves justice;    he will not forsake his saints.  They are preserved forever,    but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.29   The righteous shall inherit the land    and dwell upon it forever. 30   The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,    and his tongue speaks justice.31   The law of his God is in his heart;    his steps do not slip. 32   The wicked watches for the righteous    and seeks to put him to death.33   The LORD will not abandon him to his power    or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial. 34   Wait for the LORD and keep his way,    and he will exalt you to inherit the land;    you will look on when the wicked are cut off. 35   I have seen a wicked, ruthless man,    spreading himself like a green laurel tree.436   But he passed away,5 and behold, he was no more;    though I sought him, he could not be found. 37   Mark the blameless and behold the upright,    for there is a future for the man of peace.38   But transgressors shall be altogether destroyed;    the future of the wicked shall be cut off. 39   The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;    he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.40   The LORD helps them and delivers them;    he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,    because they take refuge in him. Footnotes [1] 37:1 This psalm is an acrostic poem, each stanza beginning with the successive letters of the Hebrew alphabet [2] 37:3 Or and feed on faithfulness, or and find safe pasture [3] 37:22 Hebrew by him [4] 37:35 The identity of this tree is uncertain [5] 37:36 Or But one passed by (ESV) Ezekiel 1 (Listen) Ezekiel in Babylon 1 In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.1 2 On the fifth day of the month (it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin), 3 the word of the LORD came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the Chebar canal, and the hand of the LORD was upon him there. The Glory of the Lord 4 As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal.2 5 And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness, 6 but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings. 7 Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf's foot. And they sparkled like burnished bronze. 8 Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus: 9 their wings touched one another. Each one of them went straight forward, without turning as they went. 10 As for the likeness of their faces, each had a human face. The four had the face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle. 11 Such were their faces. And their wings were spread out above. Each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies. 12 And each went straight forward. Wherever the spirit3 would go, they went, without turning as they went. 13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches moving to and fro among the living creatures. And the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14 And the living creatures darted to and fro, like the appearance of a flash of lightning. 15 Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them.4 16 As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl. And the four had the same likeness, their appearance and construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel. 17 When they went, they went in any of their four directions5 without turning as they went. 18 And their rims were tall and awesome, and the rims of all four were full of eyes all around. 19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose. 20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures6 was in the wheels. 21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. 22 Over the heads of the living creatures there was the likeness of an expanse, shining like awe-inspiring crystal, spread out above their heads. 23 And under the expanse their wings were stretched out straight, one toward another. And each creature had two wings covering its body. 24 And when they went, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of many waters, like the sound of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 25 And there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 26 And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire;7 and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance. 27 And upward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were gleaming metal, like the appearance of fire enclosed all around. And downward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness around him.8 28 Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

Psalm 37 1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers 2  For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. 3  Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. 4  Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5  Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. 6  He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. 7  Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! 8  Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. 9  For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land. 10  In just a little while, the wicked will be no more; though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there. 11  But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace. 12  The wicked plots against the righteous and gnashes his teeth at him, 13  but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he sees that his day is coming. 14  The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose way is upright; 15  their sword shall enter their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. 16  Better is the little that the righteous has than the abundance of many wicked. 17  For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous. 18  The LORD knows the days of the blameless, and their heritage will remain forever; 19  they are not put to shame in evil times; in the days of famine they have abundance. 20  But the wicked will perish; the enemies of the LORD are like the glory of the pastures; they vanish—like smoke they vanish away. 21  The wicked borrows but does not pay back, but the righteous is generous and gives; 22  for those blessed by the LORD shall inherit the land, but those cursed by him shall be cut off. 23  The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way; 24  though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand. 25  I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. 26  He is ever lending generously, and his children become a blessing. 27  Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever. 28  For the LORD loves justice; he will not forsake his saints. They are preserved forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off. 29  The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever. 30  The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. 31  The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip. 32  The wicked watches for the righteous and seeks to put him to death. 33  The LORD will not abandon him to his power or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial. 34  Wait for the LORD and keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land; you will look on when the wicked are cut off. 35  I have seen a wicked, ruthless man, […] The post What Should the Righteous Do When the Wicked Are Winning the Day first appeared on Hope Christian Church.
