Influence Has No Boundaries

April 23, 2016
Influence… influr “to flow into” —- grants access to a deep place
The positional lines may be clear, but it is a fact that influence has no boundaries and it does not need my permission to go where it goes

What you say goes, God – Psalm 119:89 (MSG)

February 4, 2016

ForeverWordSettled

Psalm 119:89-96 – A declaration that acknowledges the saving and sustaining power that lies within our obedience to God’s word.

The Message (MSG)

89 – What you say goes, God, and stays, as permanent as the heavens.

90 – Your truth never goes out of fashion; it’s as up-to-date as the earth when the sun comes up.

91 – Your Word and truth are dependable as ever; that’s what you ordered—you set the earth going.

92 – If your revelation hadn’t delighted me so, I would have given up when the hard times came.

93 – But I’ll never forget the advice you gave me; you saved my life with those wise words.

94 – Save me! I’m all yours. I look high and low for your words of wisdom.

95 – The wicked lie in ambush to destroy me, but I’m only concerned with your plans for me.

96 – I see the limits to everything human, but the horizons can’t contain your commands!

 

The KJV of 119:89 (very familiar) says: “FOR EVER, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.”

Whatever is settled in heaven cannot, then, be changed on earth; it’s not subject to any other person’s opinion or beliefs. When something is settled, it’s set, settled, it is what it is.

When you know something is settled, you can give yourself all the way over to it; to resting in it and depending on it. You can take the limits off of it and let it come ‘all the way alive’, because you trust it.

So I say unto you, know God’s word is settled and that whatever He says goes. Trust in it; stand firm on it, and live by it.

2. Articulate with much clarity and specificity where you are today
3. Compare your vision with your reality
4. Ask yourself: “Do I love where I am (or who I am) today enough to stay here forever?”
5. Clearly express any fears you may have about your vision and the transformation that must take place for it to live.
6. Think about the people and organizations you’ve committed to in your past and present; determine who might belong in your future.
7. Decide what is worth fighting for right now.
8. Make the decision and prove it with execution.

Economic Injustice In the Black Community Is Our Problem to Solve

December 5, 2015
The title of this TED Talk doesn’t do it’s content justice. The presenter, Maggie Anderson, wants us to understand that the resolution to the problem of economic injustice in the black community must be resolved on a local level.
What’s needed to defeat economic injustice is something no political nor governmental person can (or ever will) do. The answer is within each individual in the community. Maggie shares some stats. On one end she says Asian dollars circulates within their community for 28 days before leaving. And on the other extreme, Black dollars circulated in the Black community for only 6 hours before leaving. What this means is as soooon as we get paid, we send that money right to another community, then our dollar circulates in that other community for however long it stays there. Hispanic dollars circulate 7 days in their communities; White communities, 17 days, and Jewish communities, 19 days.
I know we have many reasons why we don’t support black owned businesses as much as we could or should… I know and understand the struggle; we need to keep working on it.

Philosophy on Growing Cucumbers and Life

August 5, 2015

For every 2 yellow flowers there is the ‪#‎potential‬ for 1 cucumber. Success depends on bee pollination, water, sunlight, time, and protection from pests.

In YOU is the potential for something in particular; and your success is dependent upon YOU getting the right elements to come together in the right portions, to work together for the right amount of time. But remember, you’ve got to get through this process during the right season in your life. Don’t miss the productive seasons (spring, summer, fall) because a cold winter is always coming. Let the Lord lead you.

The World is Lining Up with Bible Prophesy – So Why Are We Acting Confused?

July 1, 2015

I know things look horrible…And it seems like the local church is doing a poor job at practicing what we preach (in terms of showing agape love, seeing miracles, and in terms of ‘commanding a thing’ and ‘having what we say’); but consider this information a well-studied friend of mine shared with me today (and some of these points are already in my upcoming book).


She wrote:

Everything is as it is supposed to be. It’s terrible, but none of it is strange, or a surprise.
1. The CHURCH is doing exactly as it should.
–great falling away (from TRUTH and DOCTRINE)
–salt that looses its flavor
–not heed sound doctrine
–having a form of godliness, but deny the Power
–weak and unprayerful Christians who hardly even pray or read or fast
–powerless preaching that doesn’t deal with sin or repentance
–salt has lost its flavor, and it CANNOT be resalted
–light of the world. Take a look at the world…if you want to know the state of the light

2. JEWS are doing exactly as they should.
–regathered
–surrounded by enemies
–dry bones live again
–reestablish Hebrew
–reestablish agriculture
–reestablish shekel
–burdensome stone to the world

3. NATURE is performing perfectly.
–birds, bees, fish, whales, turtles,etc. dying by the thousands at at a time
–strange noises in the sky
–strange cloud formations
–frequent earthquakes in remote and diverse places
–mad cow, crazy chicken, poison spinach,etc.
–record breaking and devasting storms and winters
–have we forgotten already the earthquake in Haiti, or the tsunami?

4. The WORLD is doing as it should.
–rise in homosexuality (as it was in the days of Lot, so shall it be when the Son of Man returns)
–increased immorality
–legalized marijuana
–witchcraft
–scoffers of the Truth who neither care nor consider
–believe winds of doctrine
–strong delusion sent their way because they refuse to love the Truth
–rise of atheism
–a vast increase in transportation and knowledge, spoken of by the Prophet Daniel

Everything -EVERYTHING – is as it is supposed to be.

God is in complete control.

He warned us these things would happen, and they have all been happening within the last 100 years.
