State of the Body

Tonight the President of the USA is going to tell us the state of the union. That got me to thinking, what is the status of the body of Christ now?

The status is poor. Jesus when he left gave us ONE job to do. To make believers of all men. Instead we have relinquished our authority, we allow the government to dictate our attitudes and beliefs. Matt 28:17 tells us 17When they saw Him, they worshiped Him, but some doubted. 17When they saw Him, they worshiped Him, but some doubted. 18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Jesus delegates us the authority, Exosia, power, unlimited. This means we have all deligated POWER in HEAVEN and Earth. The gates of Hell shall fall to us!  Yet, in last 50 years we have seen the loss of prayer in school, government, everywhere. We are loosing free speech, the church of satan has won the right to put a statue of the devil on the capital steps in states. Pagans have worship services in the military so do various mythological groups like Norse. Abortion starting in 1973 with safe, rare procedures it is now cheered when you can butcher a fully born child! America WAKE UP! We the spiritual leaders are caught up in unless debates of what type of service is the best, is tithe legal, praying for the President to be removed! for examples. I can see the Generals of yesterday rolling in their graves at the stupidity. We are called to do one thing and we can’t do that right! 

Please get back to God, pray and repent if needed. But time is SHORT we are a family and we need to act like the book of Acts is in effect which by the way it is, and build the body daily 3000, tell me how many have prayed and raised the dead, or healed someone? Why not, I am asking myself also. There is NO excuse, as Jesus said All authority in Heaven and Earth has been given to him, then after his resurrection delegate to us. An example is  the police, the State has the obligation to police and keep peace, the People delegates to the State authority to police, which in turn delegates the police the authority needed.

Even though the body is weak now, all it takes is asking Christ for the power that we have then watch what happens.

How far we have fallen as a nation.

In my almost 55 years, I have seen amazing growth in the mighty USA. One of the first things I remember was several space launches from Cape Kennedy, and went to the moon many times. Open heart surgery and artificial hearts were developed. We stopped the immoral separate and equal racism laws in the south.

However, I have noticed the loss of the soul of this country! in 1962 Engel v. Vitale case took prayer out of the public square. This was the beginning of the decline of the US.

The fight is for a so-called “right”, abortion! In 1973 Row vs Wade stated that “At the point of viability, which the Court believed to be in the third trimester, the state’s interest in “potential life” would become compelling, and the state could regulate abortion to protect “potential life.” At that point, the state could even forbid abortion so long as it made an exception to preserve the life or health of the mother.

Since this, over 61 million abortions have happened in the US since 1973. imagine that, we fought the greatest war in history because of the loss of 11 million Jews.

Imagine over 72,000 children a year in US alone. Up until this year this was limited to third trimester. Now, in New York the unthinkable has happened. Fully born children can be murdered. It has been taken to extreme, and what did the Gov and legislature do after passing this heinous law? They celebrated! Where is the soul of this country?

Where is the soul of the Democratic party now? The DNC convention in 2016 deliberately left God off and abortion was on. They finally put God back on but a major plank is abortion. Democrats who claim Christ you can’t continue to lie. We are to be “little Christs” and I will 1000% guarantee that Jesus would NEVER endorse murdering children. He expressly condemns hurting a child!

Not saying Republicans are perfect, however, we support life and right to life. The bible tells us things will get worse, a civil war is coming if something does not change. The civil war was fought in part the freeing of the black people from slavery. I see the left that is against life, the constitution and liberty and the right who fight for life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Pray for God to send a fresh wind so the well-meaning democrats that really feel this is a right for women, will clear the scales from their eyes and hearts.

I am sick of seeing that we should not talk about this because someone may be upset by having done an abortion and then possibly hurt themselves. Well they had issues before that and spreading Gods word should never be contained. Its LOVE telling people not hate! I am 100% against the protesters who resort to violence, God is clear about vengeance is HIS! And we as a country have a lot to answer for.

So pray for this country for revival and forgiveness. Blessings

Will the new Tax Law impact tithing?

As a Pastor of a church it is increasingly difficult to bring income into the storehouse.  Between theologians who can convince sheep that the tithe is unGodly and the changes in the tax laws, it is a challenge. I’m going to punt on the first problem I mentioned for another time. Today it’s the raising of deductions for itemized returns. The new law increases the standard deduction to $12,000 for singles and $24,000 for couples. When I was younger and single and in military I had no problem giving 18 to 20k in tithes and offerings. Now that I’m married and semiretired, on what combination we make it would be very difficult to donate $24,000 and itemize. While we shouldn’t tithe as a tax write off the facts are many people do.

With the new levels introduced, we need to get more creative in getting the flock engaged in excited in giving to God. We have to stop the scare tactics that has been used too much! We are in the church age not Old Testament. We no longer under a curse, instead we are under a promise. One that states, test me and see. We are not limited to 10% anymore. If that is what you feel then do it,however if God prompts you to give 20% then do it. Once I realized that God wants to partner with his children and not threaten them, I truly wanted to do my part as a member in the kingdom of God.

This can be an opportunity to have giving grow as never before. Please let me know what you think? Blessings.

You don’t know what you got till its gone.

One thing as a guitar player since I was 5, I have always been proud of is my ability to hear and enjoy hearing music and sounds around me.  I always had great hearing. I played guitar by ear and when I joined the Navy I leaned on my ears to do my job.  I was a Cryptologist which I listened via headphones all day and heard lots of static all day. When I retired from Navy,  I still had perfect hearing! God really blessed me with that! As a minister, I also needed both physical/natural hearing with my ears and spiritual hearing of my heart.  God had blessed me with being a hearer in the spirit more than a seer.  I never knew how much I relied on my hearing  with my ears until I woke up one morning and could not hear well in my right ear.

On September 1, 2017, I woke up noticing a strange feeling in my right ear-felt like cotton stuck in my ear and sounded around me sounded muffled.  During the first week, I treated this myself and used over the counter sinus medications.  No improvement and my right ear still felt plugged and congested.  Julie suggested I go walk-in-clinic at the VA and get it checked out. I did.  The nursing staff could not determine what happened… and did nothing.  No improvement noted. The following week, I went to my civilian primary care doctor and he gave me allergy meds and steroids. Still no improvement and  by now my right ear continued to feel plugged and additional decreased hearing noted with speech and sounds around me.

As I was talking to my wife, Julie, I had a great thought. Duh, my wife is a Audiologist!!! She agreed to test my hearing!  I agreed since she can confirm that  all is well. So yesterday I let her do a comprehensive hearing exam.  The look on her face showed the results were not good!  As a wife, she could not treat me,  So today, I had my hearing checked by my Audiologist. He tested me two months prior and knew my previous result was normal hearing in both ears.  What I had suffered the last month was confirmed-mild to severe loss of hearing in my right ear of unknown etiology and he also had no idea how and why.  I can still hear words but reduced hearing in the high frequency range.  I was told most likely it will not return. This is not what I wanted to hear. I don’t know what this will do to my playing guitar.   From my experience, please protect your hearing, I am glad I did. I want to give a special shout out to the Audiology Department my wife works at. I am very impressed with their professionalism and how they are.

The reason why I mentioned the hearing in the natural, this also applies to how we hear in the spirit.

I moved to Texas a year ago and I am concentrating on developing the ministry God gave me and as such I am not on staff anymore as a Pastor. I admit I started slacking on reading the bible and I noticed not long ago I started not hearing God as clear as when I was working as a Pastor. I had gotten used to just hearing Gods voice not having to really work to listen.  I started noticing it quieter or better yet what I was NOT hearing.  I have always said that the natural is the manifestation of the spiritual. Now I have to ask why, what is the reason, is there a reason? I think that God will get ahold of you and get your attention whatever it takes, and I am determined to make an effort to get closer and listen to get it back.

Make sure you appreciate your hearing both spiritual and natural, you don’t know what you got till its gone.

Sep 11 2001/What did you do?

I had been in the Navy for 13 years and was a CTR stationed in Yokosuka, Japan.  I had just returned from a Direct Support mission to East Timor peacekeeping operation on USS Essex. I was looking forward to a week off after a typhoon had locked the base down and I could not leave, the the storm moved out and I was going to go sight see in Tokyo. I had just settled down watching Armageddon and after the meteors hit New York I turned off and watched the Today show it was about 11 PM and they announced a story about a plane hitting the WTC. They said a small plane hit it so I assumed a cloudy day. They went live and saw the sun and no clouds so I thought how weird. After a few minutes they showed another plane hit and said it was live and not a replay and hit the other tower.  I ran room to room in the barracks waking everyone up to watch the tv. I called home and talked to my parents up till the first tower fell and lost phone. I was so angry, I could understand the pentagon, a genuine military target, but not WTC! This was a cowardly attack and I stayed up all night watching the coverage and knowing what was to come.

The next few days were tough we were locked down in the barracks and itching to go. My commander came by to update us and getting people orders, I asked to go to help and was told to sit and wait I would have opportunities later.  Needless to say I didn’t get my time off but I did get to go help take out terrorist in the PI which in the end was much more satisfying.

Now it is 16 years later, I am retired from the Navy and from the NSA. I have seen Bin Ladin taken out, I have seen other terrorist killed. I have lost friends and colleagues in this war. What has infuriated me the most is the idiots who claim 911 was a job the government did! We did NOT attack our own people, we did NOT explode the WTC or Pentagon! Take off your tinfoil and just give it up!.

Lets not forget what happened.

That is what I did on 911.



Not Just Statues

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

Something has been happening recently that has been breaking my heart. Ignorant people who I feel are well intentioned are taking it up on themselves to cleanse our history so as not to offend people. They forget the fact they offend the people who want to keep memorials to a long ago civil war where our families fought! It's not white supremacy I'm supporting, I hate them! Goes against everything I believe in. But the left is NOT without blame either! Taking upon theirselves to destroy monuments is what is causing the powder keg that the KKK is using to blow the country up! The white supremacist camp should have died out and in fact it almost did, till recently Black Lives Matter had the unintended result of breathing life into them again! They are full of hate and bitterness and rubbing the results of the civil war in their face is just away to add more. Just let it go and they will disappear eventually.

My family literally was brother against brother! In Maryland the battle of Antietam 5 of my great grand uncles died in the cornfield. They went to war because they were told to! It was not slavery even though I had some who owned slaves. I also had some who were slaves! In same battle I had cousins from Illinois fighting against their own cousins! It was not about States rights, it was because their new country asked them to defend their families! Both sides did the same!

After the war the federal government let the confederacy keep their pride, horses and rifles to live. No recriminations were made no one was charged for treason because no treason happened. The CSA became USA after was over! The confederate states believed if you voluntarily join you can leave! They didn't like the US they saw trying to unfairly tax and bullying them around. Like today the country I see I am ashamed of. Brother is fighting brother because of beliefs and they think if they remove the memories of the war then everything is hunky dory!

These monuments were put up on both sides to honor the leadership and men both black and white who died in those 4 years. These monuments say we will not forget my great grand fathers families who like my GGGrandady was captured in Vicksburg and survived the war. Or my GG uncle who died in Richmond!

All those who are so full of hate I ask WHY? What did they do to you? None of us alive were either slave holders or slaves so if the memorial bothers you then don't see it! You complain about the hate and fear and how your ancestors were treated .Well my family were Cherokee and they lost everything! The trail of tears was at least as bad if not worse than you complain about. Thousands dead and forcefully relocated and wars fought against them. But I don't see demands to rip down monuments to Custer or Grant and Sherman who fought there! How about Andrew Jackson and his monuments? When do we stop?

If you take down one sides memorials, then it's open season on yours! What's next burning the writings you hate? ISIS does this not America!These are not just statues they are history that you can not wipe away not without severe repercussions! So if you want civil war again for stupidity then go ahead keep insulting your brothers and sisters from the south. Keep calling them traitor and putting your boots on their neck then reconcile with

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan—to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves, and with all nations." A. Lincoln

With malice to none please remember this and stop this insanity before it's too late!

Enough is Enough

I am 53 years old, I grew up in the south. I have seen first hand racism and reverse racism. My record speaks for itself. I am anti racist of ANY color! I have dated black woman, Brown, Yellow, White and in one case a green one but that is another story. in fact I married a Asian woman! I have stood in opposition to discrimination. But what I am seeing on the web and hearing our President disrespected has to stop! I noticed many try to disrespect the President by not saying his name just 45. Or they openly accuse him of vile things that they KNOW is wrong. As a Christian we are to uphold our leaders, we are to pray for them in addition we are REQUIRED TO LOVE THEM! I heard from a female minister today who told me how much of a disgrace he is and how she prays for him to be removed. Funny, I remember being called racist for the same thing just a couple of years ago.

I know this is NOT what the Democrats wanted, but 8 years ago Obama was NOT what we wanted either. But we lived with it, when did we cause riots and attack police and burn towns down? We educated people we got the vote we beat Hillary! I regret I said things about Obama I should not have, I was disrespectful at times and I repented for it! I always stood up for him when people talked of removing him, of attacking his family! I realized what my brothers and sisters now can’t see, just because others did it does not make it right! For 8 years I watched my country that I love get torn inside out by this leader who had no experience or qualifications to be President. Sound familiar?  Did he do all good? no, did he do all bad? no. He was not the president I wanted, but he was the President of the United States of America, and he was the one that God wanted!

President Donald Trump is the President of the United States whether you like it or not! He is YOUR President! MINISTERS HE is OUR LEADER! You should not disrespect the leader of the nation, Don’t attack his family! Pray for him, I did and I pray for him now. He is not perfect, far from it! but he is doing the best he knows how and all you do it attack him and family! How would YOU like it if they did it to you?

Take a few days off of face book and get with God, see what He say to do. Read the bible what does it tell you to do? Please stop wishing for his death! Do what we were told, get over it and give him a chance to help this country!

It’s Not My Time!

I know there are people reading this who are frustrated because doors are not opening up like you feel they should. Admit it, it bothers you! You have sat in the same position for years. You have been loyal,cheerful and hard working! You hear rumbling about promotion and you know it’s yours, then the name and it’s somebody else! You are crushed! I know because I have been there so many times! I kept going around and around the desert reliving it over and over. Then God showed me the secret, until you are able to rejoice for them also you won’t be ready to advance. That and the answer to the conspiracy keeping me from advancing, the answer.. there is NO conspiracy! It was NOT MY TIME yet. When it’s your time the doors will open and you will be promoted because it was time. 

Blessings till next time.

The Gain is Worth the Pain!

There are times in life where you are placed in position to learn. But, it has a price.

I had been in Maryland for 10 years and I had been an Associate Pastor and Ordained as a Bishop in the Church of God. I had just gotten married and I truly felt it was time to resume planting churches and move on.

God arranged for me to transfer to Hawaii. When I arrived I met with the overseer and told him what God had showed me. He Recommended that I go meet with the Hawaii Ministry to the Military Overseer. I clicked, he asked me to join the ministry as Youth Pastor and I accepted. We knew that eventually God would open the door for us to start a ministry but then in December 2013 a bombshell! Bishop had to transfer to the mainland and asked if I wanted to take the church over! I jumped at it thinking this was answered prayer. I would be put as the Hawaii MTTM Administrative Bishop also.


Here is the installation ceremony where we were placed in the Leadership for Hawaii.

Julie and I worked our tails off, I received a vision for the ministry! I contacted all the pastors and the state officials, I called MTTM and collaborated. For three months we worked countless hours and phone calls but we were ready! Or so I thought!

June was going to be the start month, we had over 100 committed to help. We had the base chapel and praise teams. Then out of the blue I get an email shutting it all down! For some unknown reason the plug was pulled on the work that had been going on for years. I was told they did not want a center and never explained why. We were crushed! I did not want ANYTHING to do with church or the CoG or the MTTM after that for along time. I wanted to reach out and let them know the pain but God told me to stop and wait.

I took the ministry God had trusted me with and for the second time under MTTM I merged it with another. Thank God for the small church in Hawaii that had the same heart and burden that I did. We ended up transferring a couple of years later back to the mainland.

I started Plant Ministries after this. It is a next step ministry for me. I am moving to Texas in July, I know that God has something for us. I am more mature now that a couple of years ago. I have learned to forgive and forget and move on. I have had a lot of pain in the ministry, more than my share.  I had been hurt by people who I considered Spiritual Father to me and it is VERY hard to get over. Please let me share I now hold no hard feelings. They must have felt that God had them do it. I only have issues with the unfeeling manner it happened. I gave everything and to have it ripped away and given to another minister was wrong and not Christian. It was great business but I thought I was in ministry. I love them still but I admit it is very tough for me to get over this one but I am trying. The hurt affected my ability to trust and commit to other opportunities.

I had been on staff of a ministry in MD that failed hard. The Pastor resigned and was removed from the denomination. I thought I would never be able to get passed that. God showed me that I HAVE to forgive and more importantly FORGET!  I have had the opportunity to do this and it has changed my ministry. I have had the chance to minister with friends who was in the same situation as me. They have helped me heal and grow and I thank them so much! Pastor David and Tracy Whittington are true representation of Christ! I was able to look my old pastor in the eye and get closure. Since then God has opened my spiritual eyes and ears, I am hearing stuff in the Spirit that is amazing and I am excited to share when God releases it. So the question is, is the gain  worth the Pain, YES! Stay with it and keep your eyes on God and don’t let the devil tell you to stop.

Till later..

Titles are not the problem.

We can change our titles but won’t fix the problem. It does not matter the title we still have the scriptures that mention on being the husband of one wife to be an overseer. It has nothing to do with not getting a voice and keeping women down and being afraid of women as some have been screaming from the rooftops. It deals with who do we as a denomination follow. Do we follow the word of God as established for 5000 years or modern day theologians who bully with their education and try to rewrite the scriptures to spin what they feel is their enlightened view? And this all boils down to a group that want women to be leaders in church government to be equal with men, im sorry that goes against well established biblical doctrine, A position that is well established for over 2000 years and only recently been questioned. A position that God set up for HIS government, where man is the head and woman is helper. Where God is a MAN not a woman! And because popular culture says that’s wrong they say the church is wrong so it follows God is wrong and has to change! This has to stop, this takes up too much time during the GC and we can’t get to important decisions. The bitterness and rancor against those of us who sincerely disagree with this has to stop it gives open door to the devil to cause discord and hate. I can’t stand going to the GA anymore with the rude and outright disrespectful attitudes from brothers and sisters who you disagree with. Being mocked by pastors who don’t show Christian love. I’m sorry this went on so long but imo this has to be faced, NOW or it WILL destroy us.
