1 Corinthians 4:10-14 (New Living Translation)

 10 Our dedication to Christ makes us look like fools, but you claim to be so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are so powerful! You are honored, but we are ridiculed. 11 Even now we go hungry and thirsty, and we don’t have enough clothes to keep warm. We are often beaten and have no home. 12 We work wearily with our own hands to earn our living. We bless those who curse us. We are patient with those who abuse us. 13 We appeal gently when evil things are said about us. Yet we are treated like the world’s garbage, like everybody’s trash—right up to the present moment.

 14 I am not writing these things to shame you, but to warn you as my beloved children.

Judges 20 (MSG) 20 1-2 Then all the People of Israel came out. The congregation met in the presence of God at Mizpah. They were all there, from Dan to Beersheba, as one person! The leaders of all the people, representing all the tribes of Israel, took their places in the gathering of God’s people. There were four hundred divisions of sword-wielding infantry.

3 Meanwhile the Benjaminites got wind that the Israelites were meeting at Mizpah.

The People of Israel said, “Now tell us. How did this outrageous evil happen?”

 4-7 The Levite, the husband of the murdered woman, spoke: “My concubine and I came to spend the night at Gibeah, a Benjaminite town. That night the men of Gibeah came after me. They surrounded the house, intending to kill me. They gang-raped my concubine and she died. So I took my concubine, cut up her body, and sent her piece by piece—twelve pieces!—to every part of Israel’s inheritance. This vile and outrageous crime was committed in Israel! So, Israelites, make up your minds. Decide on some action!”

8-11 All the people were at once and as one person on their feet. “None of us will go home; not a single one of us will go to his own house. Here’s our plan for dealing with Gibeah: We’ll march against it by drawing lots. We’ll take ten of every hundred men from all the tribes of Israel (a hundred of every thousand, and a thousand of every ten thousand) to carry food for the army. When the troops arrive at Gibeah they will settle accounts for this outrageous and vile evil that was done in Israel.” So all the men in Israel were gathered against the city, totally united.

12-13 The Israelite tribes sent messengers throughout the tribe of Benjamin saying, “What’s the meaning of this outrage that took place among you? Surrender the men right here and now, these hell-raisers of Gibeah. We’ll put them to death and burn the evil out of Israel.”

 13-16 But they wouldn’t do it....

Acts 5:4 (NASB)

 ...Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God."

For Instance, the Lord gave me a personal revelation that for a Christian to store up treasure in heaven, then his giving must be of a very personal nature in which it benefits another human being or to an individual or group of individuals who are truly in need of a blessing from God. For instance, if you gave your offering to a family in need of food to live on. Or if you gave your offering to a single mother who was badly in need of housing, transportation, milk to feed her babies, then by giving to this young mother you would be pleasing the Father and would be putting a smile on the mother's face, as well as God's. 

If you were to send your offering to a missionary who was thousands of miles away obeying the gospel, this would please the Father and you would be storing up for your selves treasure in heaven. 

Oh, I could go on and give you a lot more examples before my mind were to go blank, but you know what, I would bet that each of you if you were to have actually listened to what I have said, could probably give me the same amount of examples?

Nevertheless, what I have found out in the modern church is that most people really couldn't care less about those who are really in need or those who the heart of God beats for. 

No, most men and women in the church  would rather adhere to the words of those who claim to be leaders in the church and demand to have their words acknowledged as if they were men who speak for God. 

Most men in the church are merely men pleasers and I don't believe that this is the nature of man that God intended for him. 

No, I believe that the church has been "bewitched," into blindly following men and women who declare the supposed interpretation of the Father's heart. 

Do you think the church today is a reflection of the Father's heart?

Absolutely not, because we can look to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and we can see that Jesus did not come to walk on Earth and to give his life up for mankind merely so this last day generation can be a reflection of a corporate boardroom, CEO, and structure that is measured solely on it's financial success, yet this is what we have created in our churches.

Jesus is the only true reflection of the Father's heart, and his teachings and sayings are not anything of what we have allowed men to make of it in the church.  
In the book of Galatians we can look at a similar time in history when the apostle Paul had to deal with the many false leaders who had infiltrated the church. 

 Galatians 1:1-12 (NLT)
1 This letter is from Paul, an apostle. I was not appointed by any group of people or any human authority, but by Jesus Christ himself and by God the Father, who raised Jesus from the dead.
2 All the brothers and sisters here join me in sending this letter to the churches of Galatia.
3 May God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace. 4 Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live. 5 All glory to God forever and ever! Amen.
6 I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News 7 but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ.
8 Let God's curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. 9 I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.
10 Obviously, I'm not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ's servant.
11 Dear brothers and sisters, I want you to understand that the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning. 12 I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ.

We see here where Paul has to affirm his calling to the Galatians because in this book he is about to seriously correct them for allowing men to interfere with the Gospel that Jesus left unto His disciples. 

The one thing that Jesus emphasized over everything else in his teachings was that the gospel was free to every man woman and child on the earth. It was to be free to all who would dare call on the sacred name of Christ. Nonetheless, wicked men had infiltrated the church and they decided to put a price on every thing and on every body who was now a member of the church. 

They said, "This man has the gift of Prophecy, well stick him outside under an umbrella tent and he can charge the people for personal prophecies."

They found another man gifted in the art of "interpreting dreams," so they said, "Hey, we can set up a table right next to the so called Prophet, and this guy can interpret dreams for the people at a price, of course."

Another man said, "Hey, I've got it why don't we make some idols out of those who have gifts of song or musical ability?
We can charge hundreds of dollars like when they come to worship Elon Johanan?"

Then these men spoke to the existing leaders and they said, "Hey, which member of the church is the Mohel?"

Some of these leaders were from Gentile backgrounds, so they weren't quite sure exactly what a Mohel was?

Finally though, after it was explained to them, these old leaders fell in with the new wicked leaders and they replied, "Yea, that's what we need a few Mohel around here." 

Thus, right next to the so called Prophet's tent and in between the so called Dream Interpreters tent they established a tent with a few Mohel in it.

The next thing these evil leaders did was to spread new doctrine birthed from their greedy and covetous little hearts. They began to infiltrate all of the churches that the apostle had raised up and any others that had mealy mouthed little men and women running them. 

They said, "Why didn't you know every member of the church has to be circumcised else he is not really a member in good standing."
"Oh, and by the way if you aren't a member in 'good standing,' this means that you will always be seated on the back rows, you will never participate in leadership, your children will be looked at as second class citizens in the social functions of the church and to be quite plain we the leaders will just despise and hate you although we will never openly betray our true feelings." 

Well heck, Jimmy Joe, if they didn't even do something worse than that?

You know what they did?

One day, one of them got up in the pulpit and he declared a new theology which was to soon over take the entire church. 

The man got up in the pulpit and declared, "You have heard that it was said, 'Bring your tithes to the storehouse,' but I tell you I am the storehouse, my Marion, my Judas, and my little gal Rebekka, yep, Us four and no more, we is the new storehouse."

Next, when all those weasels and mealy mouthed men heard that first part where the man declared, "You have heard..."They got a little confused. 

"Why doesn't that man sound just like our Lord and Savior Jesus, Bubba?"

Bubba, wasn't the brightest bulb in the lot, and he replied back, "Sure does, little Dubya, yea, when ever I hear one of them guys I always think that it is the Lord God speaking through them, could you pass me one of them Tithe envelopes, Bubba?" 


Soon, the church began to forget about the poor, they were too busy spending the many tithes and offerings that the mealy mouthed people were giving because none questioned their hearts anymore. 

You see, their hearts were no longer free, but they were bound up with the obligations of man and the world. 

I mean, every where you looked men were sprawled out on pews having just had a visit from one of the house mohels. After a few weeks there were committees and committees and it was as if they couldn't put together the committees fast enough to spend all the tithes and offerings on worldly entertainment and things that would entice the people to come to church in order to be entertained. 

In the Galatians church alone there were three Grammy Awarded singers, an Oscar winner, two Toni Awarded actresses and a winner of the People's Award for best Trans Performer in or around Asia Minor.

So, anyways the church became consumed with itself until the apostle visited it that day. 

Paul began to set them straight and to call out those false apostles and leaders as they should have been called out years ago. 
In Galatians three, Paul asks them a question that by all modern standards would appear as "not true."

You see, the apostle ask them, "Who has bewitched you all?"

You see, by today's standard most in the church would say that "People cannot become bewitched."

I would like to argue though that the Holy Spirit is the true author of this book and if God has allowed this question to remain in scripture for over two thousand years, then I would have to say that, "Yes, the church can become bewitched and furthermore, the modern day church has also become bewitched." 

My argument for that statement, of course, is that the modern church is a mirror reflection of the Galatians church in which the apostle directed his letter. The only difference today is that instead of Circumcision we have substituted Tithing for the Legalistic bondage of Circumcision that held the church bound to tradition and evil men.

 Galatians 3:1-5 (NLT)
3 Oh, foolish Galatians! Who has cast an evil spell on you? For the meaning of Jesus Christ's death was made as clear to you as if you had seen a picture of his death on the cross. 2 Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses? Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ. 3 How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? 4 Have you experienced so much for nothing? Surely it was not in vain, was it?
5 I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ.

The Lord, personally told me that on that particular day when multitudes  of Christians are going to stand before Jesus expecting huge rewards, He is going to have to tell them, "I am sorry, you have no rewards up here because I honored my word and I sent your tithing and offering rewards to Earth."

You see, when the Lord told me that the first thing that I did was to check out the scriptures and to see if my vision had any validity.
 He told me that because he is a just God, he will have to inform them that the rewards from their earthly tithes, or from their manipulated offerings had already been accounted for and that they were already sent to the Earth.

The scripture quoted so much by those who lay claim to your finances declares, "Trust me, see if I will not open the windows of heaven and to pour out a blessing to you."

You see, God's in heaven and when you obey that Old Testament scripture and that principle that he gave in order to bless man while on Earth, it was not to substitute for the law and principles that Jesus would come in the future to declare. Jesus intended to fill mankind with personal knowledge of the new law concerning giving that Jesus would reveal as being much more important to God. 

Do you understand what I am saying?

The Old Testament taught men how to prosper in hard times, whereas Jesus came to teach men how to prepare for your retirement in heaven. 

In other words, God has given us a choice to either prosper momentarily on Earth to appease our flesh or to do very good deeds to mankind while at the same time storing up for yourselves treasure in heaven. God promised that if you tithe, He will pour out of heaven to Earth.
He also promised through Jesus that if you love your neighbor rather than to have a bigger car than he has, you will receive treasure in heaven. 

Our leaders, however, teach that you need a newer and bigger car rather than to give your finances to help your fellow man, other than to them, of course?

You see, I have been preaching this personal revelation given to me by God for probably twenty years, yet I have yet to find a pastor or leader to share it. 

It's funny, but yesterday I listened to a number of preachers around the country online, maybe six sermons. Our nation has been hit with this Covid 19 and I like to know the hearts of these preachers. Most people in the church will just blindly follow any preacher, so long as his mousse is just right, or he has a cool following, or maybe a Grammy singer or two in the church. 

I have always been a little different. You see, I have always figured that if I am going to place my soul in another man's hands then the mousse becomes secondary, as well as the Bull chips that many leave near the pulpit after preaching. 

So, I am listening to this widely known preacher and he gets to a point where he is talking seriously of the consequences of this pandemic.
Well, he mentions "storing up treasure" and then I sort of saw him choke and maybe even look a little guilty. 

At that moment, I was wondering if he had been reminded of my web site or of my teaching on giving, as revealed by Jesus personally to me. 

Then I thought of a number of other preachers who have steadfastly refused to mention the revelation that Jesus gave me concerning the tithe. 

For years, these preachers have pounded their pulpits in order to get their people to tithe to them, yet they all avoid the subject of heavenly rewards. 

Could I ask you when the last time you heard a preacher preach about heavenly rewards unless it had to do with paying them your tithe?
But, seriously, when was the last time you heard a preacher tell you to go out and to do something very special for your fellow man, in order to receive treasure in heaven?

Have you ever heard a preacher mention that we have eighty young mothers with no income whatsoever in our church?
No, they all want your tithe, many of them actually believe that God has placed them in their various authorities in order to receive your tithes, as if they were on God's payroll or something and you were created to support them? 

You see, whenever I preach about the Jesus that I know of from the Bible, my preaching is always challenged.

I read the Bible, and then I say, "Hey, that can't be God's will to build and build and build concrete buildings by continually using the word of God to manipulate the finances from God's people. 

I say, "According to the New Testament God would rather the church support the hungry, the needy, the elderly rather than the architecture, the builders, the secular corporations and all those secular industries that are just using the churches finances, and yes I am including here all of the church corporations that are constructed and raised up through strictly financial endeavors of a few men who decide to declare their "business" as a church.  

Well, enough about all of that...
Most of the above was posted on 5-31-20
Today, I was looking for a paper where i wrote of my times in a Prayer Room, close to ten years ago. It was during those many hours spent in a Prayer Room speaking in tongues for as long as ten hours a day, when I first began writing concerning this Pandemic. 
I remember a couple of times, where I had spent hours and hours in Prayer and then after the fact, I would write about the possibility of a Flu pandemic coming as part of a sort of judgment to America, like the 1918 Flu pandemic. 
Nevertheless, I came upon this paper tonight and before I knew it I was rewritng it by eliminating some and adding some other. 
Most of the added script is below following this paragraph. 

...Again, These are judgments that have to be made from God. I can't tell you what is in a man's heart, unless God reveals that to me through the gift of discernment?
What I can tell you and many of the preachers and leaders around this country is that if you guys continue to play games with God, then you better be expecting an answer that you may not like. 

.....You See, this Pandemic is a wake up call to the church and I think that God has become very tired of all the games that have been played in the name of Jesus.
Personally, I believe that if our church leaders remain silent in the political realm and continue to play these games with God and His people, then there is going to be drastic consequences for our nation. 
I have heard it stated by too many church leaders that God is not a Democrat or a Republican, as if he cares little concerning the righteousness of a nation. 
Have you ever read the Bible or are you just stupid?
Have you ever read the Old Testament?
Have you ever asked yourself why God judged, so harshly particular Kings, Judges or Leaders?
Well, it was all based on what they allowed or did not allow in the Kingdom, in which they governed. 
It really isn't Brain Surgery, don't you have the sense to understand that if a politician wants to enact laws that kill little babies straight out of their Mother's womb, then perhaps as a Leader, he might not be God's first choice? 
My God, you all can't be that stupid, so I am just going to save your embarrassment and to reveal the truth. 
You all have acted as a bunch of Cowards and self serving pigs. 
I'm sorry, either you are cowards and self serving pigs or you are stupid as toads. 
How can a nation full of Pastors supposedly called by God Almighty continue to elect the same politicians who have done absolutely nothing for our inner cities. Year after year, we have to listen to the reports of youth being slaughtered in a particular city, as if they were coveted buffalo about to be extinct from another era. 
Nevertheless, where is the outcry among our church leaders, black and white. Last weekend, I heard that there were two three year olds slain, and yet this November, as is the norm, our church leaders are going to elect the same Governmental leaders. 
You sir, were the person that pulled that trigger when both of those three year olds were slain, if that is your modus  operandi? 
This is how God looks at things. 
This is how God judges leaders.
If you don't believe me, read your Bible. 
There is a story in the Bible about a man who had his concubine attacked, molested and killed. 
The act was so brutal, and horrific that after the fact, he cut the woman up into twelve pieces and sent a part of her body to all of the areas in Israel.

As the various tribes realized the seriousness of the offense and the brutality of it, the people came together and they punished the culprits. 
This was how God brought justice to a nation, that had all abandoned it, due to the evil time that they were living in. 
What if God were to send the corpses of the hundreds of youth slaughtered in Chicago every weekend, and sent them to every individual leader who voted and supported our public leaders on anything other than RIGHTEOUSNESS?


You are right, God doesn't care whether it is a Republican or a Democrat, but He will hold you accountable for the life of every child slain, should you continue to elect political leaders solely based upon your Pride and tradition. 

It is not brain surgery. If a politician cannot control the domain for which he took responsibility, then get rid of his sorry pathetic ass, as quickly as possible. 

For both God's sake and for the children. 

I believe that the word for the church in this hour is that you are going to see many cross over that you would've never believed to have crossed over so young. 

Nevertheless, God has been long suffering with the church as their hearts have become very hardened. 

And I am not talking here of the children, but of the leaders. 

This is not a judgment of anger, but rather this is a judgment of mercy. Many will not understand this at first, but in their continual journey they will understand. 

If this isn't a "word from the Lord to the church," it ought to be.

May God have mercy on all of our souls!
