Part 2: Crippled At The Table/Barely Delivered

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

For the second installment of this short series, we'll discuss 1 Peter chapter 4 where we see "judgment begins with the household of God". It goes on to inform us that "the righteous will barely be delivered."

This is a timely message as the Church - and the entire world - is beginning to enter an age of unprecedented birth pangs. It is time to immerse ourselves into the Word of God and become sober in all things.

Part 1: Crippled At The Table/Barely Delivered

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

In this short series, Part 1 discusses the incredible account of Mephibosheth's invitation to come and sit at King David's table, recorded in 2 Samuel. In it we see ourselves. Shameful, broken yet invited in because of a covenant that is bigger than us. Will we, spiritually speaking, follow Mephibosheth's pattern or will we refuse the invitation of the King? Let's find out.

Part 12/Conclusion - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

Here, the series comes to an end as we use the Scriptures to insert what we are to do AFTER we are found willing to surrender our national identity and patriotism. It is time for the Church, that has placed Her hope in national liberties and freedoms and not Yahweh Elohim, to come out and sojourn on.

It is time to return to the pattern we see in Abraham, who "by faith lived as an alien... as in a foreign land... looking for a city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is Yahweh." As well as the other saints of Hebrews 11 who "confessed that they were strangers and exiles" and "made it clear that they are seeking a country of their own."

Yahweh is bringing deserved judgment to America - in ways this land has not seen before. I would boldly warn that all who are found in allegiance with Her are aligning with Her ancient pagan/idolatrous cornerstone and will risk being led astray in the days to come. In this series, we have FIRMLY established that Her origin has been undergirded by dependence upon a pantheon of gods/goddesses to maintain Her liberties and strength. Come out! Do not be found as an inhabitant in a land that You, Church were meant to sojourn through! A land where Yahweh has placed His name awaits Us, IF we will come out from among them and be separate!

Part 11 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

I am amazed at how many people's eyes are being opened as they begin to respond to the Father's call to come out of patriotic America in this hour of testing. The present shaking is stirring many to awaken from their slumber and question their national allegiances.

This series moves towards a conclusion as this episode continues to parallel Isaac in Genesis 26 - connecting how I believe America is entering into vs. 16 specifically. Abimelech and the herdsmen of Gerar (metaphorically: the inhabitants/natives of this nation) are telling the Church (who are to be aliens and strangers), "Move on! Get out of here!" Will you be as Isaac and leave or will you fight for "your rights" and remain a disobedient dweller in a land that you were meant to move through?

Some are beginning to see - the Church is meant to sojourn! Will you hear what the Spirit is saying and come out from among them?

Part 10 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

Since Wednesday's events took place right in the middle of this series, this episode examines what unfolded during the patriotic rally in District of Columbia. Do we see the "peace" that Yeshua (Jesus) left us evident in today's patriotic demand of American rights? Are the patriotic mainstream Church behaving as sojourners awaiting a better country or have They become deceived dwellers used to carry out the plans of the elite who are controlling them?

Part 9 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

The series is nearing its culmination. This episode specifically sheds a bit more light on why Yahweh is calling His Church to leave the patriotic Christian-American mindset as we unearth more ancient idolatry that resides in plain sight. We also define what it means to be "patriotic" and loyal to national allegiances vs. "looking forward to the city with permanent foundations" that is yet before us. Lastly, we set the table to discuss where the few found willing to come out should go from here.

Part 8 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

This episode continues where Part 7 left off - examining America's pantheon of gods that were invoked to institute freedom and liberty, at Her founding. We read several intriguing quotes of founding fathers, learn who the goddess Minerva/Libertas is and take a hard look at the "cap of Liberty" that is rooted in Roman idolatry yet is seen throughout this nations young history. And... does the GOP really have pentagrams in their logo, right now?

Part 7 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

We've been examining Genesis chapter 26 for a couple of weeks now. Using it as a biblical example for becoming sojourners as opposed to dwellers and inhabitants of the nations (in our hearts). This episode takes out the microscope of scrutiny and places it directly over America. Why are there carvings of gods, goddesses and pagan/idolatrous lawgivers on the inner walls of the most important building in the land (The Supreme Court)?

Why is America's heritage much more ancient and idolatrous than most people would ever believe? All followers of Yeshua that are truly "looking forward to the city with permanent foundations, of which the architect and builder is God" absolutely must be willing to hear this warning to come out from among them.

Part 6 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

The series is really rolling along now as we begin to look into some specifics in regards to why Yahweh is calling His people to come out from the United States and Her idolatrous ways. Specifically, we begin to examine the endless gods, goddesses and pagan imagery that covers the geographical hub of this nation (DC) and how "freedom of religion" invited all manner of idolatrous ways that are beginning to produce fruit of wickedness that we're seeing all around us today.

Part 5 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

In this episode we go a little bit deeper into some specific issues in regards to why it's even remotely possible that the Father is calling His people to come out and be separate from the United States in this hour. We discuss the historical account of Washington and other Master Masons laying the foundation stone of District Of Columbia and how it contradicts the biblical fact that there is only to be one Cornerstone, Yeshua Messiah (Jesus).

Part 4 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

The series continues as we dig into the activities found within Isaac redigging Abraham's wells. Many present-day Believers have answered the call to leave behind a considerable amount of temporal traditions, but most, I find, are unwilling to lay down their national pride and identity. Let's discuss why and continue to avail ourselves to examine our misplaced loyalties and allegiances.

Part 3 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

* This originally aired as a video episode on Youtube HERE.

The series comes back in by examining humanity's drive to find their place. Identity is everything and until we set our minds to sojourn out unto a Land that is yet before us, we will continue to meet fighting, contention and hatred from the "locals" of natural kingdoms of men.

Part 2 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

The series continues as we dive into the main text of the study - the account of Isaac redigging the wells of his father in Genesis chapter 26. The parallels within the text are astounding as we begin to apply them to and critique the Christian-American drive to become an established inhabitant as opposed to a travelling sojourner. Here, we begin to verse-by-verse examine this remarkable account.

Part 1 - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

The series gets going as we establish a biblical definition of what it means to "sojourn and await a native country" versus "dwell and permanently inhabit". The baseline for examining Genesis chapter 26 is laid in this first installment of the series that will challenge our national allegiances.

Introduction - Inhabitants Who Were Meant To Sojourn: A Call To Come Out

This episode is audio pulled from what was originally recorded in video format (on Youtube) and begins to lay the groundwork of what will be presented using the biblical text of Isaac redigging the wells of his father in Genesis chapter 26. Has the Christian evangelical majority become permanent residents of a land where they were meant to merely sojourn? Because of this, are they now reaping the fruits of mixing and idolatry? Let's find out.

Shut Your Mouth

Before you get all worked up at the title, it would do you well to know that I'm referencing what Holy Spirit spoke to me recently. In this episode, we will examine the importance of self control and fighting off the urge to air our grievances and grumble in anger. If a regenerated Christ-man receives some sort of satisfaction from such activity, we must ask why.

Admitting Weakness

 
I will continue to push back against the broad evangelical message of this hour and say that the only way that the Church will truly advance is to confess Her own sin, error and weakness. In this episode we will discuss Hebrews chapter 12, verses 11 and 12 that tells us we're to "receive discipline that produces righteousness and then strengthen our weak hands and feeble knees." Until the Church aggressively chooses to remove Her gaze from everyone else's problems, She will continue on in Her own.

Living Waters In Freezing Conditions

Spurgeon once explained via metaphor that if the Church is flowing and active, She will not be affected by circumstances that are ever-changing around Her. In this episode, we bring this truth to the here and now and pose some tough questions to those of us that make up the Body of Messiah.

Clothed In Scripture

This episode is primarily spontaneous commentary on the importance of properly reading, studying and walking out the written Word of God. Why do we study? How do we appropriate what we study correctly and just what is this mysterious Text anyway?

Commentary: November 27, 2020

This episode is all over the place. In it we'll discuss, yet again, how this hour is full of endless opportunities for the Church to be sifted and remove Herself from the patterns of the world. Other topics include the importance of being honest with one another in an age of disappointment and how we are being pressed to "come out from among them" even further.
