Naboth Needs Our Help

Naboth Needs Our Help

Good morning…may I ask for your help?

Africa – Be the Story

I am writing to you quickly because of the urgency of my request, and because Melinda and I have loved you and sown into your life. We appreciate your support over the years, and now we want you to join us, and become a part of our ministry once again.

A new development for us, Mountain Vintage Fellowship, The I Am Network, and world missions came to me about five days ago.

Naboth’s mission is in Jeopardy. The government of Uganda is requiring Naboth by law to be ordained to a new level, have officials present for this ceremony, make a visual recording, and receive authentic credentials, at a ceremony in M’barara, Uganda. We ordained him years ago as a Pastor, but now the ordination is to another level, and time is running out for his credentials to be g. Therefore, I am going July 18-25, 2017 to fulfill this request.

I need your help:

Help the Orphans

  1. I need your prayers before the throne. The multitude of souls that Naboth’s ministry brings in must not be stopped. He is an international harvester! Please participate with me in prayer
  2. I need you to dig deep and give a gift. I know the Father has sent me, and you can receive the blessing of giving back. The Apostle Paul made a similar request, “For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. …an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” No gift is too small, so please give, and the promise of the Father will manifest in your life.

As you know, we have had a long relationship with my “twin” brother since 2002, and he asked me in 2007 for more of an authority covering for his ministry, and the Father answered his request. Since then, we with others, have supported Naboth and Alice, trained leadership, blessed and fed the orphans, ministered in conferences and crusades with literally hundreds of people coming to salvation, raised funds for the schools, ordained over 200 pastors, with the fruit of the ministry growing… now the ministry has over 290 churches in seven African countries, over 750 orphans, and students of pastors in a government sanctioned school for education, and a growing vision to disciple the nations. This is a Kingdom Family Ministry.

One Pastoral Ordination

Now you can participate with me and receive a reward from the Father. He said, every promise is Yes and Amen in Christ! Here is the promise: “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” Luke 6:38

You may send your gift by mail,

The I Am Ministry

21 Florida Ave

Black Mountain, NC 28711

You may send your gift through your card here:

Please help me settle this legal issue that faces Naboth, his family, his ministry, and his children.

Thank you ahead of time for your very important gift.

This is what the State of depression looks like. Change your posture!

This morning someone texted me…Any suggestions for depression? It feels like a vacuum sucking the joy out of me…

I responded quickly. I know what God says, but you must choose to literally enter into His promise. The most powerful being that fills eternity says this to you right now!!! “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23)

MY TEXT –

Yes…stand straight up, jump up and down, and Say out loud… I am the son\daughter of the king of the universe! I have the power and love of God living in me! I choose to focus my mind and heart right now on His eternal life! NOW!!!! In Jesus name!

I bring my personality and my focus into the state of God’s love! My value is determined by His Love for Me! I am walking in the Spirit of eternal LOVE, POWER, and SOUND MIND!!!

papaSkyI bring every thought into agreement with the scripture that says… God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind!”

Now put you hands on your chest and pat your chest right below your neck, and while you do that say, I agree with my Father, I have his mind, I have his love, and he will take care of me!!!

Now pray, Father, will you please fill me with your perfect love? Right now?

Then take a deep breath and release your soul to Him.

Now tell someone what God has done for you…always give what God gives you.

Your belief system is seeing you as defeated, your health ending, and your job as a dead end. But – BELIEVE GOD! It is temporary!!!

Your choice is powerful!

REMEMBER – CHOOSE TO AGREE WITH GOD NOT DEPRESSION!

Your choice is powerful! What will you do for someone who you are in love with?

NEW BOOK!

NEW BOOK!

How to have Prosperity in your Soul!

In the roaring Twenties, the atmosphere in New York city was filled with expectancy and promise. Henry Ford’s cars crowded the streets, and the world looked on as the United States experienced exponential growth. Prosperity was a by-word. When the Rockefeller’s came to the party the atmosphere ascended. They personified the American dream and the prosperity of the early twentieth century.

NEW BOOK BEING RELEASED NOW! AMAZON

NEW BOOK BEING RELEASED NOW! AMAZON

However, this book is not about America’s rise to economic supremacy, or the Rockefeller’s prosperity, but I wrote it with entertaining stories and eight practical steps so that you can acquire a prosperous soul. God promises that when your soul prospers your life will prosper!

As you read, engage the Spirit and you will overflow with prosperity. When you choose a relationship with the eternal God, he flows through you just as he flowed through His Son. He is the source of heavenly health, celestial wisdom, and divine wealth. Eternal prosperity cannot be bought with earthly treasure, but as you follow the Holy Spirit through steps in this book it will be opened to you.

I have experienced this prosperity first hand and proved the process true. I have seen it work in my life and in hundreds of people whom I have counseled. I live in the promise and  glory released through the power of Spirit. My heart is at peace, my soul walks in confidence with God, my emotional love and joy increases, and the story of my life is unlimited! But this rise in my soul did not come from this temporal world! This transformation has comes through the power of God’s eternal Spirit.

Prosperity is illusive and garners a wide assortment of definitions and descriptions. An entertaining comic gave this sketch.

Money can buy you a house, but not a home.

Money can buy you a bed, but not sleep.

Money can buy you a clock, but not time.

Money can buy you a book, but not knowledge.

Money can buy you medicine, but not health.

Money can buy you sex, but not love.

So you see money isn’t everything. And it often causes pain and suffering. I tell you all this because I am your friend, and as your friend I want to take away your pain and suffering. So send me all your money.[1]

When I heard this I laughed, but wisdom says money is a part of prosperity. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit Moses said, “But you shall remember the Lord your God: for it is He that gives you power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant…”[2]

The key to prosperity in your life is inescapably bound to the prosperity of God in your soul. The soul has a currency and an exchange rate that is very different from bank account balances. You may have heard, “…life is a negotiation and we are all negotiating.”

 

The Treasure

Prosperity tops the chart of the self-help industry and stands highest in the celebrated topics on the motivational circuit. Inspiring teachers tell the David and Goliath stories of great achievers, successful businessmen, triumphant underdogs, and victorious women who by sheer determination carve a place in history.

And while telling these stories, they attempt to answer the questions everyone asks; What is prosperity? How do I get prosperity? How do I achieve prosperity in my life? Remember the old wise saying, “When men are young, they give their health to get wealth, and then as they grow older, they give their wealth to get health.” I want to show you a way to do both.

If you allow inspired humans to define and promote their brand of prosperity, you will wind-up in a six-foot-deep dead end grave. I saw a bumper sticker that describes the mantra of this system, “He who dies with the most stuff wins!” Many of the understandings of prosperity I see people investing their life in looks suspiciously like greed. Is this true prosperity?

 

Warren Buffet

I saw an interview with Warren Buffet an investment genius, whose net worth at the time of this writing is in the neighborhood of sixty-six billion dollars. He said, “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” In this interview he said, “I am good at making money. I made my first trade on the New York stock exchange when I was about eight years old.” He exuded confidence and went on to say that there are many people on the earth that don’t know how to make money. His conclusion was, those who know how to make money have a responsibility to take care of their fellowman. Then he said that the rich should pay their fair share.

When Warren Buffet finished I was amazed. It challenged my thoughts because I had never heard a rich man talk like this before. Later, I learned that Warren Buffet was tasking his son Jimmy Buffet with giving massive amounts of his money away before he dies. This generosity seems like a habit among some of the super wealthy people.

Andrew Carnegie, an oil and steel tycoon in the late nineteenth century sold his empire and gave back to his fellowman by, among other things, building libraries. Carnegie wrote several books and numerous articles. His 1889 article “Wealth” outlined his view that those with great wealth must be socially responsible and use their assets to help others. This was later published as the 1900 book The Gospel of Wealth.

J.D. Rockefeller followed a similar pattern and established a foundation that is still trumpeting humanitarian causes. On a recent trip to Uganda, I saw Bill Gates, whose estimated wealth at present is in the ball park of seventy-nine billion, on television being interviewed about his foundation that contributes to feed, educate, and set up legal help for humanitarian causes. These men of means give back to their fellowman and want to leave a legacy. They want to spread the wealth, health, and prosperity to help the poor and uneducated.

But the prosperity doesn’t come from monetary investments. Prosperity is a matter of tuning your heart to the creator and harmonizing with His abundance. Would you describe the Son of God as prosperous? He was the eternal God in human flesh. No one is more prosperous. I heard this statement a week ago, “He has more money than God” and laughed.  

These observations makes an appointment the Son of God had in the first century very interesting. Around 33 AD, during the days of the Roman empire, a rich young ruler sought out Jesus Christ. The first century rich were not so different, unless they were young. As you may know, rich people are usually very independent, self-confident, resourceful, and proud about their successes. Most have the same thought, “If I can do it anyone can.”

 

The Ruler

As Jesus walks away from Jericho on his way to Jerusalem, a rich young ruler rushes to him, falls to his knees, and asked Him a timeless question. “Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?”

In that moment Jesus gazed into him, “You know the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honor your father and mother.” All of these commandments are prerequisites to prosperity in your life.

And he answered, “Master, all these have I observed from my youth.”

Then Jesus beholding him loved him, “One thing you lack: go your way, sell whatever you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.”

And the rich young ruler was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

And Jesus looked round about, and said unto his disciples, “How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!” And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answered again, and said unto them, “Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”

And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, “Who then can be saved?” And Jesus looking upon them said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”[3]

The rich young ruler walked away sorrowful because his soul valued the treasures on earth more than the eternal treasures of heaven. Therefore, his soul was darkened by riches.

Jesus said, “…With God all things are possible.” Jesus prophesied the prosperity that would manifest in the young ruler’s soul. He received the answer to his question, but the answer was not manageable like his fortunes. But, when he chose to invest in a world beyond this realm, eternal life would spring up inside him. Faith is believing more in what you sense than in what you see. You may not have mountains of money, you may not be talented in sports or the creative arts, but you can have the prosperity of God’s eternal riches. How does work?

 

The Change

Oral tradition holds that the rich young ruler was Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, who after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ sold all he had and laid it at the apostle’s feet. (Acts 4) When the rich young ruler walked away from Jesus he was sorrowful. Godly sorrow worked repentance. As a Levite, Jesus knew his call, his dedication, and his love, and challenged his acquired value system. When Jesus responded with “sell all you have,” it struck him like a slap in the face. Only he and Jesus knew that his idol was out of the closet. The love of money was killing him and left unopposed would take him into eternal hell.

He was a “ruler,” that is, a member of the Sanhedrin, the same council Saul of Tarsus was a member. According to tradition, to be referenced as a rich young ruler, his personal wealth would sustain an entire city for over five years. When Joseph acted on the encouragement of Jesus; to sell everything he had, his choice may have actually incited Saul’s fury toward the followers of Jesus Christ. For one of his own council sold everything, gave it to a cult, and joined their blasphemous ranks.

The Wisdom

The rich young ruler laid all he had at the Apostles feet they renamed him Barnabas; son of encouragement, because he responded to the encouragement of Jesus. He encountered the Savior of the world and obtained eternal life.

Later, at the direction of the Jerusalem Apostles, Barnabas was sent to Antioch where he witnessed the exponential growth of believers. He knew the church needed a strong dedicated teacher, with the scholarship of Gamaliel to meet the demand for the revelation of Messiah from the Law. Therefore, being “a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith,” plus having a preexisting relationship with Saul, and furthermore knowing the story of Saul’s salvation experience, Barnabas went to Tarsus to seek him. After he found him, they returned to Antioch and for an entire year assembled with the church, and taught the new Jewish and Gentile believers.

Think about the irony of two members of the Jerusalem Sanhedrin teaching the secrets of the law and Yeshua-Messiah in Antioch. The glory of God illuminated and prospered the souls of many and changed the face of the church. It was in Antioch that the believers were first called Christian.

This book will give you a foundation for the flow of eternal prosperity and enlighten you way into the Spirit realm of God. He waits to enrich your life. You can grow strong and prosper.

YOU CAN HAVE PROSPERITY NOW

Prosperity has a wide assortment of definitions. An entertaining comic gave this sketch.

Money can buy you a house, but not a home.

Money can buy you a bed, but not sleep.

Money can buy you a clock, but not time.

Money can buy you a book, but not knowledge.

Money can buy you medicine, but not health.

Money can buy you sex, but not love.Three wise men and star

So you see money isn’t everything. And it often causes pain and suffering. I tell you all this because I am your friend, and as your friend I want to take away your pain and suffering. So send me all your money…[1]

When I read this I laughed, but wisdom says money is only a part of prosperity. So, if you find yourself with the burden of money, unload it.

You can have prosperity now. The key to prosperity in your life is inescapably bound to the prosperity in your soul. The soul has a currency and an exchange rate that is very different from bank account balances. You may have heard, “…life is a negotiation and we are all selling something.”

As far as prosperity goes, everyone wants it. Most have confidence in it. Countless dream of it. But, few know what it takes to obtain it, and fewer actually live in it. Some would define prosperity as winning the lottery and never having to work again. Others, marrying the right person and fetching instantaneous treasure. Still others, inventing a gadget that everyone wants, and by it possessing more wealth than a small country. But others, who make every sacrifice known to man to come to the United States, define prosperity as the American dream. 

The Treasure

Original_Robert-Stolarik_Schillers-chairs_s4x3_lg

Prosperity tops the chart of the Self-Help industry and stands highest in the celebrated topics on the motivational circuit. They inspire by telling the stories of great achievers, and answering questions like; how do I define prosperity? How do I get prosperity? How do I manage my life in prosperity? What does prosperity have to do with money? Who will be the one to tell me when I have arrived? These are some of the questions, but if you allow inspired humans to define and promote their brand of prosperity, your life will wind-up in a six-foot-deep dead end rut.

They spend all their energy obtaining earthly treasure. I saw a bumper sticker that describes the mantra of the world’s system, “He who dies with the most stuff wins!” An old sage told me once, “The earth is out of harmony with God because man is out of harmony with God.”[2] Listen to me! The prosperity in the soul is a matter of tuning your heart to the creator and harmonizing with His abundance.

The Generous

This generous and benevolent abundance of the creator was elegantly flowing out of His son during His earthly ministry. His day usually began early on the mountain with his Father.

On this particular day his appointments began as he was leaving Jericho. He took children up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.

Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway begging. And when he heard it was Jesus, he began to cry out. “Yeshua, Son of David, Have mercy on me.”

And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried out even more, “Jesus, Son of David, please have mercy on me!”

And then Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they called the blind man, saying unto him, “Be of good comfort, rise; he calls you.”

Bartimaeus threw his garment aside, arose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus said unto him, “What do you want me to do for you?”

The blind man said unto him, “Lord, I want to receive my sight.”

And Jesus said unto him, “Go your way; your faith has made you whole.” And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

The treasure and prosperity in Jesus did not have a price tag. What is the earthly prosperity, if you do not have the health to enjoy it? When you choose a relationship with the eternal God, he flows through you just as he flowed through Jesus. He is the source of heavenly health, celestial wisdom, and divine wealth. Jesus is not only your example, he came to show you who you really are and what will flow through you when you take your place by His side. Jesus simply released the flow of his prosperous soul. But His next appointment revealed more.

The Ruler

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJesus’ next appointment was very unusual. As you may know, rich people are usually very independent, self-confident, resourceful, and proud about the success they exude.

A year ago, I saw an interview with Warren Buffet, whose net worth at the time of this writing was in the neighborhood of sixty-six billion dollars. He said, “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” While he exuded confidence he said, he was good at making money. He made his first trade on the New York stock exchange when he was eight years old. Then he went on to say that there are many people on the earth that don’t know how to make money. His conclusion was, those who know how to make money have the responsibility to take care of their fellowman. Then he said that the rich should pay their fair share.

These observations make Jesus’ next appointment unique. In the first century the rich were not so different, unless they were young.

As Jesus walks away from blind Bartimaeus, a rich young ruler rushed in, fell to his knees, and asked Jesus a timeless question. “Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?”

The rich young ruler walked away sorrowful and grieved because his soul trusted his riches. His soul valued the treasures on earth more than the eternal treasures of heaven. Therefore, his soul was darkened by riches.

Jesus said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.” Jesus prophesied the prosperity that would manifest in this young ruler’s soul. He received the answer to his question, but it was not manageable like his fortunes. But when he chose to invest in a world beyond this realm, eternal life sprang up inside him. You may not have any wealth, but you can have eternal life.

The Connections

Mr Cenchelli Picture11Oral tradition holds that the rich young ruler was Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, who after the death and resurrection of Jesus sold all he had and laid it at the apostle’s feet.

He was a “ruler,” that is, a member of the Sanhedrin, the same council Saul of Tarsus was solicited to join. As a rich young ruler, his personal wealth could sustain an entire city for up to five years. When Joseph acted on the encouragement of Jesus, his choice may have incited Saul’s fury toward the early church believers. One of his own council sold everything he had, gave it to a cult, and joined their untraditional ranks.

However, after the rich young ruler encountered Jesus’ his life opened and his soul was transformed. Godly sorrow worked repentance. As a Levite, Jesus knew his call, his dedication, and his love, and challenged his acquired value system. When Jesus responded with “sell all you have,” it struck him like a slap in the face. Only he and Jesus knew that his idol was out of the closet. The love of money was killing him and left unopposed would take him into eternal death.

But he was looking for eternal life. When he laid all he had at the Apostles feet they renamed him Barnabas; son of encouragement, because he responded to the encouragement of Jesus. He encountered the Savior of the world and obtained eternal life.

Barnabas later was sent to Antioch at the direction of the Jerusalem Apostles and witnessed the exponential growth of the believers. He knew the church needed a strong dedicated teacher, with the scholarship of Galileo to meet the demand for the revelation of Jehovah. Therefore, being “a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith,” plus having a preexisting relationship with Saul, and furthermore knowing the story of Saul’s salvation experience, Barnabas went to Tarsus to seek him. After he found him, they returned to Antioch and for an entire year assembled with the church, and taught the new Jewish and Gentile believers. Think about the irony of two members of the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem teaching the secrets of the law and Yeshua-Messiah in Antioch.

The glory of God illuminated and prospered the souls of many and changed the face of the church. It was at Antioch that the believers were first called Christian. The prosperity of your soul is God’s ultimate objective. He wants all of His children to walk in the glory of His presence.

Why So Much About Demons?

Are they there? Can an invisible being hurt me? Why so much about demons? Many people are tormented and do not know why. I have felt a massive urgency to write about demons or fallen angels. (Job 1:6,7) Many times disease is driven by a demon. Disease is invisible and torments the soul of man. Like the picture in this post, the artist paints angels and demons, but seeing them and dealing with them is another matter. Mystery surrounds the spirit realm, but do not fear Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)

And there was war in Heaven

And there was war in Heaven

It is absolutely astonishing to me how many people in the west; Europe, England, America and Canada believe that the Spirit realm is a myth. I have talked to people who live by their wits and they will say heaven is not real, hell is not plausible, angels are a work of your imagination, and demons are the ghosts of dead people. In other words, “IT IS ALL IN YOUR MIND!!!” But when Jesus walked on earth he taught his disciples and his followers how to defeat them. He said, the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but I have come to give you life and life more abundantly. (John 10:10) First, satan is you enemy not God’s. Two, the enemy’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy. Third, the way to defeat him is Continue Reading..
