Scriptures from the King James Bible

Job 1:6, 7, 8
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou?  Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 

On this day, Friday December 24, 2010, Satan comes again and thus, this "face to face" memo to him from GOD:

GOD asks Satan, "Have you heard of my warriors that are on the supernatural horizon even as I speak this to you?"

Satan fearfully responds, "What warriors?"

"The warriors who are assigned for such a time as this.  I have anointed them to be relentless and tenacious against that which defies Me."

Quivering, Satan asks, "Who are they?"

"Some of them are already known to you.  A new breed, though, has joined them.  This relentless tenacious group will blindside you, Satan, from every position.  You know that I AM cannot be blindsided.  My faithful people will not always know what is coming but, because of My whole armour, as shown in Ephesians 6, they will be ready when whatever appears.  Further, the new breeders have trained others.  Those others are soon to be unveiled.  You know how John the Baptist was in the desert till the day of his shewing.  Luke 1:80 says, 'And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.'  Well, this new breed group of warriors is no longer desert dwelling.  And, they have put away childish things, and Satan, it is on...." 

"Speaking of John the Baptist - I remember that he lost his head for Me.  For the sake of John, and other saints of Mine, there is a bounty on your head, Satan, and I will not hold back the bounty hunters.  These have been engineered for end time ministries."    

Satan swallows, "Are the new breeders male or female?"

"Both - and more recruits have signed up, with more to come.  New breeders in training - don't you know?"

Satan does not respond to GOD's mocking, "Don't you know?"  He asks GOD, "Will you give me advance notice?"

"I will tell you, Satan, what you need to know on a need to know basis."

The Lord continues -

"I'm weaving the tales.
I'm spinning the webs.
I'm rocking the boats. 
I'm rebuking you, and the winds.
I'm spoiling your goods.
I'm ending your "reign."
I'm coming to get some of your people.
What's My name?  I AM!"

Satan begins to interrupt GOD.

GOD speaks, "Be still and know that I am GOD."

"You owe debts, Satan.  I AM the debt collector - due time has come.  You owe My people - My prophets, My warriors, My soldiers, and all of My assortment of saints - those that are here now and those who have gone on."

In Revelation 6:10, My saints cried,
'...How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?'  Their answers are in movement - now is the time - in this life.  I have revengers at the ready and more on the way.  Romans 13:4 says, '...a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.'

"Oh yes, Satan, they are ever ready, indeed.  They will use means that follow the Words of My Holy Bible.  They are not attracted to your ways of hatred, revenge, and perverted "justice."  My ways have great appeal to them.  They are revengers who will execute justice for Me in pure, and holy ways.  But be not deceived, there will be casualties of war; however, My warriors will perform their assignments justly, in accordance with My words and commandments."     

Satan squirms in major discomfort.  Again, he begins to interrupt GOD.

GOD extends His hand in a "stop" motion.

Satan sulks but does not speak.

GOD continues, "Right now I am telling you to listen to Me because now I am not interested in what you desire to say."

"In my new breed army, I have warriors who are fully equipped to do major battles against you, Satan, and your evil assistants.  My warriors have been trained as an elite team of valiant vessels of honor.  These warriors are unlike any that have ever been appointed by Me.  They have end time ministry qualifications in full gospel force."  

"As you know, Satan - yes, all sin and come short of My glory but these end time warriors will be less and less inclined to sin, and when they do - their repentances will be rapid - regularly.  You will not gain ground with these, Satan.  Grounded and settled in Me - they are."

"I, GOD, declare - let the record show that these holy warriors are trained to kill darkness - to vanquish deception - to pull down strongholds - to subdue perversion, and to decimate wicked machinations - all for the advancement of MY kingdom.  They are a formidable force who shall not faint, quit, or fear what you have done, will do or plan to do.  Fully armored in Me - yes - that is the deal."

The Most High continues, "We are united in love in its variation of forms.  We love to fight the good fight of faith.  We love to fight against evil because we hate evil but we love righteousness.  We love that you hate us because that affirms that we are doing the gospel right.  We love to love the hell out of your people.  We love to win souls.  We love to witness dry bones live.  We love to spread the gospel that I AM is love."

Satan trembles but says nothing.

"This warrior troop, Satan, is fully persuaded that I am their Commander in Chief - and their Fortress.  They love, obey, and trust Me.  They await, in earnest, My military orders.  They are thirsty for blood - devil blood.  Holy supernatural blood transfusions are part of the order of this day.  The blood of some of your children will be transfused into the blood of JESUS to wash their sins away.  You have been blood sucking, Satan, long enough on GOD'S destined heirs.  The cross of My SON is their deliverance."

"I am poised, wicked one, with My trumpet call - out to the elite Special Forces.  Some of the team will come from unlikely places.  I have warriors in homeless shelters, jails/prisons, and living on the streets, - Oh don't be deceived - some of My best are from, and will come from such places."  Hark!  Let the record show - a select number of folks who have been disenfranshised are My franchisees indeed.

"More people, Satan, from every spectrum of society will surrender to Me.  The suits - the no-suits - the rich - the religious, and Oh yes, more backsliders will slide back to ME.  You know also that My reach is global.  Mark 16:15 says, '...Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.'  North, south, east and west, My gospel shall be preached, and whosoever will - shall come!"

"You can look forward, Satan, to My new breed mean machine team.  We mean to do exploits with excellence, and certain triumphant results." 

In the closing words of His memo to Satan, GOD says, "Those are just some previews of coming attractions.  Stay tuned for the next episodes."

"You are in trouble, Satan, in new and incomprehensible ways..."

Isaiah 43:19
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?  I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

"Now that you've got My memo - be gone!"

Satan boils out - until...

Scriptures from the King James Bible

And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. (2 Kings 6:16)

…but with us is the Lord our God to help us; and to fight our battles… (See 2 Chronicles 32:8) 

God is the Master of everything.  There are holy battle plans revealed unto us by His Spirit.  He is a God who has dominion over the temporal, and the eternal.  We serve a supernatural God who operates in the realm of the visible, and the invisible – He is the God of it all.

Our role is to conform to His precepts, and to delight in His testimonies.  When we heed what He commands, we benefit in manifold ways as God faithfully rewards our loyalty to what He instructs.

The righteous engage in warfare to destroy the works of the devil.  We have at our ready the power of Almighty God who sends forth His heavenly army with His angels to fight the forces of evil.

When we are engaged in combat we must remember that our protection is allegiance to God’s truth – being mindful that we are covenant people with missions of holiness.  We are appointed to resist fear for there is no need to fear since the Father assures that He is our battle strategist.  At His beckoning, His army flanks, and surrounds us.  And He gives His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways.  With our full armor in place, we are a force through God, the unconquerable Military Master.

At times, we tend to give glory to Satan when we allow our hearts to become distracted by his opposition.  God tells us to guard our hearts and to give no place to the devil.  The Word states, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” (Isaiah 26:3).  Yes, we will become battle weary and need our Father to restore our souls, and to renew our strength.  He is there to help us – he promised that He will never fail us or forsake us.

Let us strive, in earnest, to remember whose we are, and whom we serve.  The power of God is mightier than any force of wicked energy.  We are appointed to let the peace of God rule in our hearts because we indeed belong to the Most High who is more than enough to defeat the foes of His gospel.  He can do that unhindered if we fight the good fight of faith - in Him.  Our cooperation can guarantee the victories, thanks be unto God!

Greetings -

Job 11:15-19

For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:

Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:

And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.

And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt take thy rest in safety.

Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid;…


Some years ago, I was given a "pink slip bonus" - translation: I was out of a job.  To say that it traumatized me is an understatement.

Today, though, what I can truly say is that it was one of the best things that happened to me because, through it all, our Lord repeatedly proved to me that He was/is at the helm.  I cannot find adequate words to describe how hugely GOD proved Himself to me through the pain of that trauma.  Tears of gratitude well in my eyes now as I write this because I remember how low I was, and now how high, in Him, I have become.  In sum, our Lord made the pink slip a bonus for me.  Only GOD can do such transformations. Glory to His awesome name.

On Wednesday December 22, 2010, our Lord led me to write the piece below for others who have endured job losses.  I used "I" and "me" in the piece below because it makes it more personal for those who personally relate.


GOD is our SOURCE, and PROVIDER.  I am the recipient of a "pink slip bonus."  Truly, it is a GOD-sent promotion.  He needs me to move on to deeper levels and higher heights in Him.  Blessed assurances are what our Lord provides so bountifully.  He takes such great care of us, his sheep.  How wondrous GOD is.  He knew about my "pink slip bonus" before the words reached me.  Indeed, He is our advance coverage.  In so many ways, our Lord covers us under the shadow of His wings.

By faith, I am fully persuaded that GOD has specific and precise plans for me.  My present place allows me a "season" to reflect, to re-evaluate, and to sit at the Master's feet to drink more of the living waters that He has so plentifully provided for me.

Yes, GOD knows that I have some pain and regret, but in Psalm 23:6 it says, "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me..."  My feet are on the ROCK, and healing is guaranteed by the Highest promise keeper.  GOD'S Word assures in Isaiah 40:31, "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles;..."

My Lord beckoned, "Come away, My beloved.  Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.  For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;"

I'm out - - pink no more - rather:

RED DRENCHED - in the precious blood of my beloved SAVIOR, JESUS, who certainly will make me free, content, secure, and full of His Spirit - prepared to advance His glorious kingdom.

Daniel 7:27 - KJV

And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Below are other scriptures relative to this piece.

Psalm 91
Psalm 23
2 Samuel 23:3
Isaiah 40
Romans 4:21
Song of Solomon 2:10, 11

How many of us are in continuance mode with relationships that are dead weight associations?  I mean they add nothing to us but certainly subtract from our positive progressive journeys.  The subject relationships could be relative to friends, acquaintances, and dating associations.  I do NOT exclude from these descriptions some “Christian” connections which can also prove  hazardous to godliness.   

Our Lord does appoint us to minister to the dead and instructs us to be mindful that we were once dead ourselves.  It is, however, crucial to be in tune with our Father to discern when to move on as the Spirit leads.  My experience has been to linger too long where I should have cancelled some “subscriptions” to relationship “magazines.”  Fool that I was, I remained in the “pages” well after the expiration dates.  Hampered spirituality was the result when I continued engagements where I no longer had any business. 

We can allow vice grips on our emotions that cause us to cling to toxic connections.  Why do we cling?  The reasons vary.  Fear readily comes to mind.  We can fear the absence of the entanglements.  Granted, the entanglements are toxic but we foolishly desire them, regardless.  Often, we are afraid to disengage.  We have become accustomed to the presence.  Inner battles rage.  We know better but are afraid to do better.  What will it mean?  What can replace them?  Reluctance is stronger than logic.

There is hope.  Undoubtedly, it can be difficult to trade in liabilities for assets.  One reality is that assets are not always immediate after cancellation of liabilities.  Hurt tends to be the immediate consequence.  Separation anxiety is a definite result.  Tough it out, though, because rainbows can be a certainty.

It is absolutely a surety that we can rise above the pain.  What is vital is a heart to work through it with awareness that it will hurt but conquer we shall.  Emotional warfare is an apt way to describe it.  We must purpose to do it and allow nothing and no one to impede our journeys to wholeness.  GOD can show us the paths of life.  His question is, “Do you want to press on to gain it?”

Recently, someone gave me declarations that, in essence, amounted to rejection of me.  Gratitude is felt for that rejection because I learned that inwardly I have come to a new place.  What he said was beneficial for me to know.  It may, to some people, seem odd for me to express gratitude for rejection.  The truth that he spoke resulted in some measures of freedom for me.  Something shifted within when I digested the content of his words.  That shift has been instrumental in turning some things right side up.  I am thankful.

Burial of dead relationships is essential to move forward.  We cannot embrace freedom if we cling to death.

In the interest of balance, I cannot conclude here without inclusion of another aspect on the matter of toxic dead relationships.  Evidence supports that there are instances that the dead can live again or live where there was no previous life.  Once toxic does not necessarily mean always toxic.  Remedies do exist to bring the dead to life.

Happily, toxic dead marriages have been revived, healed, and restored to blissful unity.  Family estrangements have gained healing.  Those are glowing reports.

My experiences have also proved that it is possible to have peace in the presence of storms.  Dissension has surrounded me where I had to reside, that is, relationships severed but I had to, for seasons, remain in the same physical places.  I learned to go and glow in spite of it.  That meant that heart disconnection happened before physical disconnection occurred.  Immediate physical relief is not always attainable.  What can be attained, though, is a heart set to reject attempts to discourage joyous progression.  Peace can be resident in the midst of toxic dramas.  Determine to sing in the rain.  Escape before you leave.  Leave intact.  Victories are choices that begin in our hearts.

Wisely consider relationship choices.  Ponder and select what is reasonable, safe and responsible.  Chances are some relationships can be “saved” while others should be categorized as permanent deaths.  Let’s face it – all cannot be salvaged.  The better we discern and understand the differences, the more liberated we shall be as whole beings on this great planet earth.

Days when our cries were as a river
We had our moments
when the river cried us

One great morning
the sobbing river dried up
and now off we journey
on moist soil that is
and oh so abundant in satisfaction.

We crossed the river with its swelling tides
We marched over the bridges
that faithfully held us -
no collapses

Indeed we are
and built to last.

Rear views have doubts and fears
Ahead are vistas captivating in splendor

Wow! this planet juice intoxicates our senses
no looking back
We left it where it belongs –
behind us.

Some fiction about truth

Three men are at the pool.

One of them is afraid to go in so he wades in the water with his feet.

One of them heads to the kiddie pool and goes in.  He's waist deep in the water.  He splashes around there.

Kids look at him as the intruder that he is. 

One of them asks, "Hey mister, why are you in the kiddie pool?!"

Sheepishly, the man responds, "I like it here."

The kid says to him, "But you don't belong in the kiddie pool."

The other kids chime in with agreement.

The man is ashamed.  He leaves the kiddie pool and joins the man who is wading with his feet in the water. 

The kids look on and shake their heads.  They go on about having their pool fun.

Meanwhile the third man is in the deep part of the pool.  He has dived off the diving board with daring moves and exercises.  He's swimming with strong strokes.  It's obvious that he's in a place of immense enjoyment.  He's having a ball with the other deep swimmers.  It's a splash blast!

The two water waders look over at the deep activities.  The waders look at one another - "Naw" - they agree.  They stay ankle deep.

That scenario is like some of what goes on in Christian communities. 

There are those who desire to be ankle deep in GOD - a little something something with GOD.

Then there are those who desire to be in the kiddie pool - about waist deep - - some more of GOD but not all of GOD.

Then there are those who desire deep water experiences with GOD - all the way in - fully covered.

Are we wading, kidding, or swimming in the high tides?

Scriptures from the King James Bible:

1 Corinthians 13:11
...but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

1 Corinthians 2:10
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

My addiction is to the essence of life.
Life fuels me
as I immerse myself
in the splendor
of the gift of breath –
Ah, I breathe in
the injection
of air flavor.
I cannot flatline on this high
that has proven alive

My addiction causes creative juices
to flow as I cook up flavorful recipes
to feed this addiction to the essence of life

My addiction supplies a natural high -
Who needs dealers
when heart grown substances
fully satisfy the cravings?

I ain’t eating no cold turkey
when an eagle is nearby
Eagles fly while turkeys are grounded -
I am going with the bird that
has majesty on its side

I woke up singing because
my addiction would not be denied.
I free based
as the sunshine gave me plenty of light –
based freely
on love from its comforting rays

My addiction propels me
to skip in the streets
Who needs a line of “coke” when –
ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby?!

My addiction jump starts me daily
as I feed its robust hunger -
We indulge abundantly
as we feast succulently
on the essence of life

My addiction and me
have COMPANY for sure…

Organic all the way, baby!
It’s good for the soul.
The heart shouts a hearty “Amen!”
