Broken by The Rock

Luke 20

7 Then He looked at them and said, “What then is this that is written: 
      ‘ The stone which the builders rejected
      Has become the chief cornerstone’?
[b]

18 Whoever falls on that stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.”19 And the chief priests and the scribes that very hour sought to lay hands on Him, but they feared the people[c]—for they knew He had spoken this parable against them.


There will be a day that you will either choose to fall on The Rock, or you will ignore him and The Rock will fall on you. This is true ultimately to judgement after this life and age is over. However this is also true in areas and arenas of your life. Judge yourself and you will not be judged.



1 Corinthians 11:31 (Amplified Bible)31For if we searchingly examined ourselves [detecting our shortcomings and recognizing our own condition], we should not be judged and penalty decreed [by the divine judgment].


The Rock will break you. If you throw yourself on the G…

Seize the Day!

Luke 19



41As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it 42and said, "If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. 43The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. 44They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God's coming to you."

     There are times and seasons appointed for the moves of God and the changes of the Holy Spirit. It is not possible to attend a meeting of Smith Wigglesworth, John Lake, Martin Luther, John Wesley, or other mighty leaders. It's not possible to attend the final West Coast Believers Convention of 2009. There are defined and definite seasons. Those times are set and you cannot go back in time. Grace and Mercy are new every morning, but certain things cannot be done over, …

Pressing Past!

Luke 18


1Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.


In this chapter Jesus is telling me that there are factors to prayer I have not participated in. As the woman had press past the judge and the blind man had to press past the people around him so must I press past the things that attempt to silence my desire and prayer.



7And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"


42Jesus said to him, "Receive your sight; your faith has healed you." 43Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.

There are things in life that are calling for my attention. Some of them are strictly unpure. But many of them are seemingly just. Finances, work, and the pressing …

Don't Look Back... Jesus is Coming!

Luke 17

20 Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation;21 nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’[d] For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”
22 Then He said to the disciples, “The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it.23 And they will say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’[e] Do not go after them or follow them.24For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day. 25 But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was als…
Luke 16


8 So the master commended the unjust steward because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light.
9 “And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail,[c] they may receive you into an everlasting home. 10 He who
iswhat is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in faithful in what is least is unjust also in much. 11 Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? 12 And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own?
13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”


      The children of the Kingdom of God are still over messing around in the worlds system and trying to get it working for them. The problem is that the worl…

The Older Brothers Lack

Luke 15


11 Then He said: “A certain man had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to themhis livelihood.
31 “And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours. 32 It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.’”


      Here is an interesting story about being lost and found. Both brothers had growing to do. The older brother is the one I'm concerned about here. This is the story of dedicated workers in the ministry and church world. They serve and serve. They get jealous of the younger brother who seems to be getting blessed despite his lack of obedience. The Father lovingly points out: It's all yours. The younger brother forgoes his rewards and inheritance. The older brother gets mad a calf was never offered to him. He didn't understand that the inheritance was divided to THEM no ju…
Luke 14

25 Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them, 26 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. 

      Jesus is not here telling us to HATE if He says we must LOVE right? There is a matter of degree. Have you ever taken a drink of tea but thought you drinking coke? Did it taste awful, even though you like that tea? Or even one soda but another in mind because you grabbed your friends glass?

     In that context you hated that drink you might otherwise like a lot. In comparison to everything and everyone else, God and He alone, must be your first and only love. Your love for others does not come second to your love for Him. It comes through your love for Him. You have no love for others, not true agape love, without loving them through Him. All love outside of His love becomes destructive. Passion turns to lust, protection becomes smothering.


    …
Luke 13

18 Then He said, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? 19 It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and put in his garden; and it grew and became a large[c] tree, and the birds of the air nested in its branches.”

20 And again He said, “To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? 21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures[d] of meal till it was all leavened.”
33 Nevertheless I must journey today, tomorrow, and the day following; for it cannot be that a prophet should perish outside of Jerusalem.



     The birds of the air nest in the branches of the tree started by the seed. The Kingdom of God is currently in the hands of the Church. The Church is the Tree of Life for the world in this age and time. The individual in the Kingdom of God is equally required to grow his branch to become a nest for the birds, which are the people of the world seeking refuge.

     The people of the world are seeking ways to get thier needs met. They are …
Luke 12

35 “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; 36 and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. 37 Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. 38 And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.39 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and[d] not allowed his house to be broken into. 40 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
41 Then Peter said to Him, “Lord, do You speak this parable
only to us, or to all people?”
42 And the Lord said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom
histhem their portion of food in due seas…
Luke 11


9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10For EVERYONE who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 11 If a son asks for bread[d] from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”

33 “No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts
it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light. 34 The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. 35 Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness.36 If then your whole …

The Martha Syndrome

Luke 10

8 Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’[k] feet and heard His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”
41 And Jesus[l] answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”


     So here I find something that seems to pertain to my life. Martha is Distracted by Service. I've gotten so busy being useful as work that I've gotten to putting aside other things that are more important. Work should never be a higher priority than Family or the Callings of God.

Martha: Distracted with ServiceMary: Sat and Listened to THE WORD.

PRAYER… HIGHEST VALUE!

Luke 9
There are several interesting things I've seen today.
Jesus sends his disciples out with no stuff and no money and God supernaturally provides. Then faced with a need that exceeded their experiences they reverted back to relying on Money. "How would we pay for it Jesus? This crowd is too big… we can't afford it…" This is the mindset of the person who has not yet learned to change from God as provider from Money as provider. ANYTIME you find yourself considering the cost of something as a factor in being able to do it… you have a red flag that MONEY not God is the provider or determining factor in your life.
BUT Darrell… The bible says to count the cost right? Yes. It is so that you can plan, write the vision and make it plain, and most importantly be specific about what you are believing for. NOT so that you can decide IF your going to do it.
Jesus, after a big day full of events… Goes to be alone and pray!
Jesus goes to a mountain to pray, and AS HE WAS PRAYING…

ONE PARABLE....

Luke 811 “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. 14 Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. 15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.   16 “No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter may see the light. 17 For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light. 18 Therefore take heed…

NO CARES! HEAR...DO!

03/15/2010

In prayer today:


     Never before has there been a generation with so many tools and resources and so little success. Value has been placed on learning more than doing. Ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth.


     It's time to focus. Game Time. Stop seeking ways to get money in and start seeking ways to get the Word out! Promotion will come but it won't satisfy you unless you were already satisfied. Your team needs your anointing, start walking in it! 


     Ever time you feel great financial pressure you stop. Pray thankfullness over what you have and thankfulness over the Promise and Blessing. Then Pray for the needs of others starting with Leaders, Partners, and Family.


     See:

2 Timothy 31 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come... 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth...10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance,…

GOODNESS - Mylon Le Fevre

EMIC: 03/14/10

Mylon Le Fevre was our "guest" speaker today. Guest in that he has his own ministry now, but not a guest in that he came FROM EMIC and therefore was just home for a visit.

Some of the key things that the Holy Spirit hit me with during service:

There may be mortgage problems in Texas... but the mansions are paid for in the Kingdom of God.Son, you are a student-teacher: Teach what you know and learn what you don't. This is your' assignment:Stop trying to get money inStart seeking ways to get The Word outYour problem has been mindset, focus, and lastingness Write a mission and vision for your projectsLift that veil!Word and Prayer and Confession: EVERY DAY!

Love MORE?

Luke 7


41 “There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”
43 Simon answered and said, “I suppose the
one whom he forgave more.”
And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.”


     There is no person that needs MORE forgiveness. ALL have fallen short of the GLORY standard. However, there are those who are more aware of their shortcomings and sins and more aware of their need for the saviour. Those "Love more" because they perceive the extent of their need. What I must learn here, is that as long as I feel like saying: "At least I'm not THAT guy!" I have missed the point entirely.

     The only difference between THAT GUY and ME is:
The Blood of JesusMy knowledge of the The Blood of JesusMy Acting on The Blood of Jesus     As I remember that I will be more likely to want to jump…

LOVE to FIGHT

Luke 6:27-38 (New King James Version)Love Your Enemies
27 “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the
one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not askthem31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.
32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit 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 credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend
back. to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and…

Prayer THE Priority

Luke 5

16 So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.

Prayer:

     Did you ever wonder how Jesus got to hear the Father? When He said I only say what I hear Him saying... was there some special connection that He had that we could never have? No... He had to use the same tools provided to us or He could not be our substitute. People didn't carry around bibles back then either. The only copy of the Hebrew bible was kept in the synagogue. Jesus undoubtedly spent a lot of time there growing up in order to know "It is written..." But He would not have kept a copy with Him like we do? How did He know the Word and will of God so well?

     He prayed...He took Himself away from the people, crowds, noise, business, and all the things that weigh so heavily on a persons day. He took himself for a long walk (No Cars) into the wilderness.

     Prayer is the only way you will ever hear the voice of God for your life and your day. Reading the bible will give you great insi…

Anointed to Produce

Luke 4
17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
18 " The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
       Because He has anointed Me
      To preach the gospel to the poor;
      He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,[j]
      To proclaim liberty to the captives
      And recovery of sight to the blind,
      To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD."[k]
43 but He said to them, "I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent."
There is no purpose, no drive, no desire, no function, no job, no ideal… Nothing higher and of more importance than to recognize the Kingdom of God for yourself. It is a real Kingdom, with a real King. It is not merely a play, or ritual, or religion. It is not just story. It is not just a truth to be experienced on the other side.
    The Kingdom of God is a real, present, …
