“Acquaint now yourself with Him [agree with God and show yourself to be conformed to His will] and be at peace; by that [you shall prosper and great] good shall come to you. Receive, I pray you, the law and instruction from His mouth and lay up His Words in your heart (Psalm 119:11). If you return to the Almighty [and submit and humble yourself before Him], you will be built up; if you put away unrighteousness far from your tents, if you lay gold in the dust, and the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brook [considering them of little worth], And make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure, Then you will have delight in the Almighty, and you will lift up your face to God. You will make your prayer to Him, and He will hear you, and you will pay your vows. You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways. When they make [you] low, you will say, [There is] a lifting up; and the humble person He lifts up and saves. He will even deliver the one [for whom you intercede] who is not innocent; yes, he will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands (Job 42:7,8).” – Job 22:21 – 30 AMP

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.” – Psalm 122:6 - 9

Acquaint yourself with Abba Dearest folks... this is the Word of the Lord... these are the instructions for life from the Most High God... He said, “Acquaint yourself now with Me”... what does it mean to acquaint yourself with Him... The Hebrew word that was translated to Acquaint there is “sakan” which means to be of use or service or profit or benefit... a servitor, a steward... to be used, be wont, exhibit use of habit, show harmony... God is saying to free yourself from all inhibitions and come to Him... open your heart and give everything you are to Him primarily because He created you, knows your latter end from the beginning, and only He can guide you and provide the fulfilment you so desperately need and seek... This reminds me of what the Lord spoke to me a while ago about how the attitude of a servant of God should be from the example of the first great apostles who always started their letters with the Greek word “doulos” which means a bondservant devoted to another to the disregard of one’s own interests... devoted to Christ in extending and advancing His cause among men... what does it mean to be devoted... The Noah Webster dictionary defines this word as “Appropriated by vow; solemnly set apart or dedicated; consecrated; addicted; given up; consigned”... Remember Jesus said as recorded in the gospel of John chapter 5 and verse 30, “I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord—but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the Voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgement is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and


pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.” ... apostle John was later to write in his first epistle chapter 2 and verses 15 to 17 “Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself]. And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever.”

This delivers the clear directive in every Christian life to empty oneself of our own dreams, goals, ambitions, wishes, and desires and taking up His... realising in trust that every dream, fulfilment and desire we could possibly need is contained within His divine Will and purpose for our lives...

“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]” – Ephesians 3:20 AMP

Someone says, but how Temisan... I really want to do this but how... I have tried so many times to live like God wants me to, but I have failed so many times... our kind Lord helps you and I in His next set of instructions...

Receive My Instructions and fill your heart with My Words “Abba’s Words in your heart” is the understood Primary in this instruction, but for greater clarity of understanding, there are two action words I believe He would want us to look at in greater detail, and they are “Receive”... and “fill”...

The original Hebrew translated there into Receive is “laqach”, which means to take, get, fetch, lay hold of, seize, acquire, buy, bring, marry, take a wife, snatch, take away, take in the hand, to take and carry along, to take from, take out of, carry away, to procure, to take possession of...”... God is saying I want you to marry My instructions... become one with them and embrace them as you would your life... for they are your life, and the length of your days...

“Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; guard her, for she is your life.” – Proverbs 4:13 AMP


“Receive My instruction in preference to [striving for] silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold. For skillful and godly Wisdom is better than rubies or pearls, and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. I, Wisdom [from God], make prudence My dwelling, and I find out knowledge and discretion...” – Proverbs 8:10 – 12 AMP

“I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live, And may love the Lord your God, obey His Voice, and cling to Him. For He is your life and the length of your days, that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to give to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” – Deuteronomy 30:19 & 20 AMP

The word “fill” He gave us in place of lay up in the text means, according to Noah Webster “...to press; to crowd; to stuff. Hence, to put or pour in, till the thing will hold no more...”...

“Let the Word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts.” – Colossians 3:16 AMP

“Let”... the understood subject that will make this happen is you... every Bible translation I have checked, has this verb at the beginning of the verse... Noah Webster defines the word as “To permit; to allow; to give leave or power by a positive act...”...David said in his 119th Psalm and verse 11, “Your Word have I laid up in my heart, that I might not sin against You”...

God is saying for you to be able to resign yourself completely to My Will for your life, you have to marry My instructions and deluge your heart with My Words... treat them as the rivers in the desert you need... to enjoy the fullness of what I have planned for you... for...

“...Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. The beasts of the field honor Me, the jackals and the ostriches, because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen.” – Isaiah 43:19 & 20


Only Abba can sustain you in the midst of a recession... when everyone else is crying “worst of times... worst of times...”, you’ll be thriving, prospering, and increasing in greater and greater abundance...

Return to Abba... Submit and humble yourself before Him These we must especially study carefully... categorically because this is where restoration of everything you have ever lost and more begins... Abba has promised, “you will be built up”. Built is translated from the Hebrew word “Banah” which means “rebuild, establish, cause to continue, established (of restored exiles)”...

The three key words for study here are “Return”, “Submit”, and “humble”... Return is translated from the Hebrew “shub” which means to return... turn back... to restore, refresh, repair....

God is saying... restore... your devotions... remember... your first love... for My Word.... and time in My Presence... turn back... repent... and do those first works when you first discovered Me... for...

“I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the Name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and My people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else (He wants no one else to be your source but Himself): and My people shall never be ashamed.” – Joel 2:25 – 27

The word “Submit” according to Noah Webster means “To yield, resign or surrender to the power, will or authority of another; To refer; to leave or commit to the discretion of judgement of another; To surrender; to yield one’s person to the power of another; to give up resistance; To yield one’s opinion to the opinion or authority of another.”; and the word “humble” carries the same meaning which is “to be meek and submissive; penitent”...

“Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty Hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.” – 1 Peter 5:6 & 7 AMP


The Mighty Hand of God would speak figuratively of the 5-fold ministry gifts He has given to the Body of Christ... The Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher in no specific order of importance, but all and each necessary specialists to equip us for the work of the ministry...

“And His (God’s) gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, travelling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers. His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.” – Ephesians 4:11 – 13 AMP

God means it! ...A job well done would be to operate in the standard height of perfection Jesus Christ operated in while on earth!! Tall order you say... but the fact is Jesus laid aside His divinity when on earth, and operated as a born again Man empowered by the Holy Spirit, much the same as we are today... we can only access and operate in this realm by a complete and total dependence on God, as the amplified specifies this faith as the leaning of your entire human personality on Him in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness.

The Lord has often instructed and equipped men to operate in more than one of these offices at the same time; primarily because not all of His children have been obedient to His calling, and the work must be done which is why I pointed out to you that the Bishop David Oyedepo’s primary calling is that of an apostolic prophet... Please note that no man can simply decide which one he or she wants to be, neither are all in the body called to be a part of the 5-fold [However the parts of the Body we might consider the least important, is actually one of the most important – 1 Corinthians 12], but men are specifically called into each office by God... Note also, that the fact that you have operated in the ministry gift of prophecy does not imply you are a prophet... it is very possible for someone to minister under the portion of Jesus’ anointing entrusted to another for a specific task that needs to be accomplished... In my ministry of intercession and in the writing of these emails, I have noticed the anointings and mantles of several men of God I have received impartations from operational namely my spiritual parents Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Jerry Savelle, Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Morris Cerullo, Bishop David Oyedepo etc... We must also note in this verse of scripture that the responsibility to do the work of the ministry is ours... their responsibility is to equip us for this as we allow... Submission to God without proper connection to these 5-fold gifts is not complete...


The Pastor of my church, Peter Anderson, pastor of Destiny Church Edinburgh, has invited a great Apostle of Jesus Christ to come and bless us in 2 services on Sunday, the 17th of October 2010 morning... and then at Destiny church Glasgow in the evening... Jerry Savelle... a proven ministry for over 40years who has been a tremendous blessing to churches all over the world, and to me... he has a pronounced anointing of the divine favour of God (which is firmly connected to your finances) fully operational in his life... what are you going to do for your future by being or not being there to receive what God has prepared for you? ...How will your life change by the degree of honour and regard to which you accord this ministry gift to the Body of Christ? ...time will reveal all... I plan to be at all three services...

Put Away Unrighteousness Far From Your Tents The words we must look into in these set of instructions is “Put Away”, “Unrighteousness”, and “Far”... we understand your Tents to include your physical body... your home, office and every other place you have authority of decision over... “Put” means to set, lay or place, and “Away” means absent; at a distance; so, used together we see God is telling us to distance ourselves from the understood primary in these set of instructions which is “unrighteousness”... “Far” buttresses this, meaning distant, in any direction; separated by a wide space from the place where one is...

We all understand what unrighteousness means but not to assume we all do, Noah Webster defines it as “injustice; a violation of the divine law, or of the plain principles of justice and equity; wickedness”, he then goes on to specify that “unrighteousness may consist of a single act, but more generally, when applied to persons, it denotes a habitual course of wickedness... Wicked is the understood root word from which wickedness is derived... please note that contrary to so-called modern times, the word “wicked” does not mean cool... according to the Noah Webster dictionary, the primary sense of the word is to wind and turn, or to depart, to fall away. The word means evil in principle or practice; deviating from the divine law; addicted to vice; sinful; immoral...

Please note primarily that when the word unrighteousness is applied to persons, it denotes a habitual course of wickedness... so when you make a mistake is not a case of throwing the baby out with the bath water... this is the primary purpose of the forgiveness we have in Christ Jesus for all past and future acts of sin... but this is not an allowance for wilful sin which will be judged severely... the Lord is the just Judge and He knows all our hearts... you say you are trusting God for your lifetime partner... your wife for brothers... or your husband for the sisters... (You have to specify nowadays) but how faithful have you been with another person’s wife... or husband... this dating business that has crept into the Body of Christ with couples kissing and fondling themselves passionately... putting their hands where it should not go, and causing themselves unnecessary struggles with the flesh, and then drawing themselves into having sexual intercourse without the covenant of wedlock bears no distinction from the people of the world who are already under condemnation! ...depart from iniquity... touch no


unclean thing... and I will receive you... and you will be My sons and My daughters... don’t we realise that friendship with the world is enmity with God! (James 4:4) ...and that the Lord is an Avenger of all such!! It does not matter who told you its ok to stir yourselves up to lust like that, God says it’s not !! ...even if you believe you are going to get married, and have decided to do just this... please don’t wait on money, trying to build a fantasy for one day, when you have your whole lives ahead of you, go ahead and do just this with the resources you have right now! ...please don’t sow iniquity into the foundation of your marriage because the harvest of that is death which manifests itself in adultery and divorce... I believe... and as I also have the Spirit of the Lord, that a Christian man and woman have no business “going out”... in what the world would typify as dating... This attitude of trying people out to see if they are compatible with you is of the spirit of the world... God never gave you a probationary period when He brought you into covenant with Himself, why should you do that to another human being who has every right and privilege to be as happy and fulfilled as you do... the way you flirt and seduce, and sleep around with somebody else’s wife... or husband... in actual practice or in your heart, is that how you want somebody to be doing with your future husband or wife right now? ...don’t you realise that God is not mocked, and you reap what you sow? ....and the alarming thing about this is that it comes back after a period of time you might not even connect to the original acts, and as much greater than the original seed of wickedness you sowed... it comes back as a harvest!! Small wonder you eventually get married, and then start having all sorts of problems that should not even be named among people professing to be Christ’s...

“...but the firm foundation of (laid by) God stands, sure and unshaken, bearing this seal (inscription): The Lord knows those who are His, and, Let everyone who names [himself by] the name of the Lord give up all iniquity and stand aloof from it. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also [utensils] of wood and earthernware, and some for honourable and noble [use] and some for menial and ignoble [use]. So whoever cleanses himself [from what is ignoble and unclean, who separates himself from contact with contaminating and corrupting influences] will [then himself] be a vessel set apart and useful for honourable and noble purposes, consecrated and profitable to the Master, fit and ready for any good work. Shun youthful lusts and flee from them, and aim at and pursue righteousness (all that is virtuous and good, right living, conformity to the will of God in thought, word, and deed); [and aim at and pursue] faith, love, [and] peace (harmony and concord with others) in fellowship with all [Christians], who call upon the Lord out of a pure heart...” – 2 Timothy 2:19 - 22

...but there is mercy with God... that He may then be feared, and held in reverence...

“For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive [our trespasses, sending them away, letting them go completely and forever]; and You are abundant in mercy and lovingkindness to all those who call upon You.” - Psalm 86:5 AMP


His chastening is clear evidence of His love for you that you may be partakers of His righteousness and the benefits of it, and not be judged and condemned together with the world... is it not rather better, for those of us who are affected by it, and whom the Spirit of God is speaking directly to here... that if you feel emotionally drawn to a sister, or sisters... you walk faithfully with them in all purity... pray for their wholeness, emotional health and healing... be faithful with that which is another man’s and God will give you your own... further to this... that boy you are saying you love is dragging you into hell, and destroying everything good God through your kind parents, your church leaders, and faithful brethren have invested in you... if your eye and your arm causes you to sin, pluck it out and cut it off (Matthew 5:29&30/ Matthew 18:8&9)... Jesus was specifically referring to cases such as this when He said that, and please note that He said these things in the same gospel twice... this is really a serious matter... please note He does not mean cutting your literal arm off, or plucking your physical eye out, or cutting off your biological homie who has stuck with you through thick and thin, and whom God has designed to be a blessing to you and your wife in your marriage... if a boy will not follow you into heaven, then please don’t follow him into hell... no man can change anybody under heaven but the Spirit of God alone... the way you are going, if you marry that boy, you will cause yourself chiefly, and all of us a life-time of hurt and pain... remember that you can only judge by their fruits... specifically the existence or not of love (which is revealed in doing Jesus’ commandments), joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law that can bring a charge (Galatians 5:22 & 23)... All sin is selfishness... you can never sin for someone else... Long before I met my wife, I shared this wisdom of sowing seeds of righteousness into other people’s wives while waiting for your own from God with a worldly sister affected by the spirit of Jezebel but posing as being in conformity to God’s will and purpose for her life, but the light of God’s righteousness always exposes wickedness... she laid emphasis on “sowing seeds into other people’s wives” in my statement and smiling coyly in saying... happy with herself for this twist of words resulting from wickedness... this was a professing sister!! ...strange woman...

Relax Your Grip on Your Money and Abba Will Be Your Treasure “Do not gather and heap up and store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust and worm consume and destroy, and where thieves break through and steal; But gather and heap up and store for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust nor worm consume and destroy, and where thieves do not break through and steal [Abba is speaking specifically about a heavenly account opened up for every new child of God on salvation, accessible here on earth-moths to destroy and thieves don’t exist in Father’s Seat of authority in heaven, and heaven is not where you will need these material resources, He was specifically referring to the Kingdom of God in operation here on earth, which rules over all (Psalm 103:19/22:28/145:11-13)]; For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The eye is the lamp of the body. So if your eye is sound, your entire body will be full of light. But if your eye is unsound, your whole body will be full of darkness [This is referring specifically to which economic system you have aligned yourself to... God’s, or the Babylonian system]. If then the very light in you [your conscience] is darkened, how dense is that darkness! No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and


be devoted to the one and despise and be against the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (deceitful riches, money, possessions, or whatever is trusted in). Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing? [In other words, which is harder for God to do... create the human body with all it’s sophistication or provide for it’s needs?] Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life? And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field and learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil [to have their needs met] nor spin. Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying [worry and anxiety are expressed in words], What are we going to have to eat? Or, What are we going to have to drink? Or, What are we going to have to wear? For the Gentiles (heathen) [unredeemed people without covenant] wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all. But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides [keep your heart and words consistently in faith, and established on Abba’s Word, and you will have all things unbelievers crave diligently]...” – Matthew 6:19 – 33

When Jesus walked the earth as a man, people were motivated as in our days to store clothes which moths eat up; armour, swords, and shields which rust eats up; and food which worms eat up, and in their considered safe havens where thieves break through and steal much like in our days also... Please note that He was referring to the entirety of human wants, and not just for clothes, food, and drink... In our age, we still have all of the above in existence together with many others Jesus knew and included in these instructions... we still have thieves and fraudsters... we also have inflation which eats up people’s perceived savings... we have interest rates which eat up more and more of families incomes and livelihoods for their sustenance, to the point that they end up in most cases paying multiples more in hard currency from the APRs... interest rates, at the end of clearing debt, than they originally even borrowed... at the risk of loosing their homes... and causing untold hurt and pain to their families... all because of one word “debt”... this is why apostle Paul exhorted to “keep out of debt” [Romans 13:8]... Tithing... is our covenant connection to the economic system of God where we receive THE BLESSING, which is the empowerment to prosper... debt payments... are the people of the world’s covenant connection to their own economic system... the Babylonian system of man trying to meet his own needs without God... whatever you cannot pay for in it’s entirety at the word go, you are not fully developed in faith and character to sustain, and it will end up being an Ishmael curse to you... and not the promised Isaac... there is nothing wrong with renting property, whilst at the same time growing in faith and resources, to be able to buy your housing for your family in it’s entirety without any debt connected to it which is completely possible, and is indeed the plan of God for every child of His... and this is the same for automobiles... food...


holidays... and every other thing we would understand as a need or want... when you borrow money, you become a servant to whoever you borrowed from (Proverbs 22:7), and this has very serious spiritual implications because the spirit that influences this person, has direct access to you, and your resources... thank God for the FSA (Financial Services Authority) whom God put in place to preserve His children who have not come into understanding yet, but in debt you are vulnerable to the manipulations... and the wickedness of the devil which may well be existent in this person, people, or company’s heart... having worked for a number of employers to include banks, I can tell you with authority that just like any human being, organisations have a prevalent “spirit” at the heart of them, which influences their policies and procedures, and decision-making... and if you come under servant-hood through debt to those who are sold out to the Babylonian dream, although you are a child of God who should enjoy the peace and plenty of God, you will be subjected to a life of slavery, from the greed that is at the heart of this system...

In our contemporary times... debt is actively traded in the open financial markets, so you can’t simply pick and choose who you will become a servant to... you may have subjected yourself to debt called a “mortgage” to a good company, but they may decide it is advantageous to them to sell this mortgage to another company completely given over to the enemy, who will use this opportunity to the utmost, to wreak havoc in your life, destroy your family, with his sole aim of ensuring you and as many connected to you share his judgement in hell...

This is why God specifically indicates “keep out of debt” [Romans 13:8]... it may have become ok in our so-called modern times, but it is clearly labelled as a symptom of the curse you have been delivered from in Deuteronomy 28.

This issue was one of the first instructions the Lord gave to me, but which I let slip and suffered needlessly from for some years, but am now free and grateful to God that I owe no man anything... will never owe any man anything but love... even if they call it mortgage... credit... or tracker... or whichever name they come up with under heaven... If you already hold a mortgage, or any other debt for that matter... believe God and do what is necessary as He instructs to pay it off sooner, rather than in 25 to 30yrs time... the scriptures reveal babylon’s fall and devastation is going to occur in 1 day, and in a single hour all the wealth wiped off their balance sheets [Read this in Revelations 18-Amplified Version]... a prophet mentioned over a 48hr period... more total and far reaching than anything the world has ever seen... not even to be matched by the 1929 great depression... or, if you so decide... as having the faith and confidence of the Lord, free yourself immediately from babylon’s grip by closing down this mortgage and selling your house, and choosing to rent till you have the faith and funds to buy your house outright... also, please don’t take the attitude of some in planning to run up all the bills and leave them for the anti-Christ... number one, God does not bless such foolishness, and two, the spirit of the anti-Christ which is already at work in the world may well use this to tie you down here to suffer in


the tribulation (Study Faith for the last days by Charles Capps, available on Manna Reserve)...

Take God at His Word, and grow in the grace of Kingdom investment... sow into the Kingdom of God with the same commitment and diligence to which a football fan would support his club... honour and finances cannot be separated... we cannot say we honour God, and keep our funds away from the purposes of His use... never worry about unscrupulous men of God, for the Lord would judge and expose such... know which ground you are putting funds into... if you are committed to a church and your spiritual life has been much blessed there, then your finances should be going in there... if your life has been much blessed by a ministry other than your church, then some of your finances should be going in there as well... make this a lifestyle... your life... and not just something you try... The children in the world system are wiser in their generation than the children of light... meaning they work their system to the bone... lying, cheating, killing, stealing, manipulating... just like their father, the devil... but God is asking us to be wise, and work our own system with diligence and dedication to produce for ours and the Body of Christ’s benefit... do not be weary in well-doing for in due season you will reap... if you faint not... if you are unfaithful in that which is least, who shall commit to your hands the true riches... God is transferring a massive amount of money into the hands of His people for the work of the ministry in our days, and He is looking for people He can trust with these funds... I had quite a massive amount of money I included as led by Him into my daily confession packet that I would have given into the gospel by the time Jesus comes to catch us away in the rapture, and He recently instructed me to increase this sum to much much more than I could have ever dared believe could even exist in one place, not to talk of through me, before His Voice imparted the faith for it... Trembling from this figure, He calmed me by explaining that there is a lot of money that has been hoarded out there to keep away from the church and to be used for unrighteous purposes that He is looking to transfer over time, but He does not have enough trustworthy stewards to receive these funds in for the work of the ministry... I guess my work is cut out, which is to continually cleanse my heart of all covetousness and help you do the same through these emails... Trust... is earned... not claimed to exist... it is built... over consistency of time... which partly explains the time lapse between seed-time and harvest.... Salvation is free from our perspective but cost something... it cost Jesus His life... now God is asking you to give your own life back to Him, and not try to save it which will result in you loosing it...Tithing is not a matter of law... but of Love’s Trust... if you have been robbing God by holding back your tithes... or have decided to tithe only when you think convenient or that you can afford it, put yourself in God’s position, and decide how you want to be treated... when your heart is clean and free of all covetousness, it is my sincere belief that this time between seedtime and harvest will grow much shorter and shorter, and you will get funds coming in on every wave...

Keep Saying Only Abba’s Words Abba instructs... “Keep saying”...”only”... this carries a clear ring of constancy and definiteness... “Say continually” (Psalm 35:27)... it is not what you say once in a while that matters... it is what you are constantly saying... all the time... Your


tongue... is the steering wheel... of your future... the things you said consistently yesterday... negative or positive... are the things you are experiencing today... and the things you are saying consistently today... are the things you will experience tomorrow... Do a full Audit of your whole system of vocabulary... which words do you use to express yourself, and do you understand fully what these words mean... “The Word preached on Sunday morning service was incredible!!!” ...I would sincerely hope not... The word Incredible... actually means not credible... without a shred of truth to it... I would understand what you mean, but it is not what you mean that matters in the realm of the spirit before the angels, but it is what you say... close substitutes to use... as used by the Bible would be “marvellous”, “Wonderful”, “Amazing”, “Really really good... or great” etc...

“...Do not allow your mouth to cause your flesh to sin; do not say before the angel that it was an error. Why should God be angry over your voice, and destroy the work of your hands?” - Ecclesiastes 5:6 LITV

Thank God for repentance through the blood of Jesus now, wherewith we can repent of idle words spoken in haste, correct ourselves and set our hearts on the Words of the Lord and release these instead... Abba gives you scriptures that speak specifically of your situation in the Bible not merely to read them that time, relax in saying “Awww... isn’t that sweet...”, and then forget about them once you leave your Bible... because every Word from God to you will be tried... and that Word embraced relentlessly, not being let go from your heart... and consistently released by your tongue... has the power in itself to produce what it speaks into your life...

“...For with God nothing is ever impossible and no Word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfilment.” – Luke 1:37 AMP

“...I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone observes My teaching [lives in accordance with My message, keeps My Word], he will by no means ever see and experience death.” – John 8:51 AMP

“...And we also [especially]thank God continually for this, that when you received the message of God [which you heard] from us, you welcomed it not as the word of [mere] men, but as it truly is, the Word of God, which is effectually at work in you who believe [exercising its superhuman power in those who adhere to and trust in and rely on it].” – 1 Thessalonians 2:13 AMP

“...be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth]. For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks


carefully at his [own] natural face in a mirror; For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like. But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the [law] of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he shall be blessed in his doing (his life of obedience)...” – James 1:22 – 25

“...as [surely as] the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so [surely] the Lord God will cause rightness and justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations [through the self-fulfilling power of His Word].” – Isaiah 61:11 AMP

The only reason persecution arises is for the Word sake (Mark 4:17)... which means the clear evidence the Word of God is growing in your life is the increase in persecution you are facing... Abba gives you these Words to get them firmly implanted into your heart by careful consideration through meditation to ensure you draw every shade of meaning from them... and then adding these Words to your vocabulary... saying them exactly as Abba has said, regardless of what your outside circumstances are showing... How can you be lying, when you are speaking the Words of the Truth Himself (John 14:6)...

If you notice satan’s temptation of our Lord in the wilderness, every temptation was answered with a Word directly from the written verses of the Old Testament scriptures, the only Words available at the time... and you will also notice that this temptation was a direct contradiction of the Word that The Father had just spoken to Him in saying “This is My Beloved Son... in Whom I am well pleased”... and then that cosmic rat comes up and says, “if you are the Son of God”... further to this... his speaking words of doubt and unbelief was clear evidence of his presence... the Bible said, when the tempter came to Him (Jesus), he said... hearing words of doubt, fear and unbelief is clear evidence of the presence of the tempter... the enemy has had a lot of time to perfect his dark art of speaking into your mind in the first person... to make you think you are the one thinking those thoughts... where you become appalled at yourself, and think you probably need to get saved again... it’s not you... it’s the demonic entity with the responsibility for that particular sin...

My Word ammo to defeat temptations to sin the enemy brings my way are... “...I have overcome them, because greater is He Who is in me, than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4); “...I yield not my members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but unto God, as an instrument of righteousness to God” (Romans 6:13); “...sin has no dominion over me, because I am not under the law, but I am under grace” (Romans 6:14); “...the incorruptible seed of God is in me, and I cannot sin because I am born of God” (1 John 3:9); “...I have been delivered from the power of darkness, and translated into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son...” (Colossians 1:13); “...in Christ I live, move and have my being, and I am His offspring” (Acts 17:28); “...I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus Who loves me” (Romans 8:37)... these words are so firmly


implanted in my heart from past meditation that every time, as many times as the enemy decides to come with his mess, they just come reeling out and he cannot stand them... your will power to withstand sin is only necessary to say these things, and not merely trying to endure in your own strength... willpower without the Word of God will not stand a chance against the onslaught of hell... these Words have been sustaining me for many years, and if I sin, it is because I choose to, not because the Words are devoid of power to save me... that impulse of temptation is usually gone after declaring these things a few times, and keeping my mind fixated on them, because as a man thinks in his heart so is he (Proverbs 23:7)....

Many of us may have verses of like manner for sin control... meaning that we do not just accept any old nonsense the enemy speaks into our minds and go out and do them... so why do we accept the thoughts of sickness and poverty? Sin, sickness, lack, poverty, and every mishap and crisis of every kind were all dealt with in the same package of Jesus’ cross? Why do we choose to give voice to sickness, lack and all that other nonsense? ...it is only what is preached that we will have faith for... in our Christian walks, many of us have heard countless sermons on the danger of sin and all it’s corrupting influences so it is firmly ingrained in our hearts to avoid at all costs, but we have not heard as many sermons on the dangers of accepting sickness and poverty that in all reality are not yours as a blood-washed redeemed child of God right now... when those thoughts of sickness and lack come because of what your physical circumstances are saying, and we give voice to them, we are actually accepting a package that is not ours... if your postman comes to your house with a courier delivery of poisonous vipers you supposedly ordered, will you accept them and sign for them? ...the symptoms of sickness come on your flesh... and you feel compelled to voice out, “I am sick”... and then someone helps us further “Aww... poor thing... you are sick” compounding your problem further with poverty; and then friends are discussing later on in your absence and they say, “I was speaking to ..... earlier on, and he is sick”, established!! ...if two shall agree as touching anything that they shall ask under heaven (Matthew 18:19), so you have got the law of agreement working there against you... do you tell your Christian friends, “man... I feel like fornicating or committing adultery right now... I think I will do it”... no no no... you are ashamed at the mere thought of this, and hope your holy friend has no idea of the thoughts that just ran through your mind at that moment in time... why don’t we make a conscious effort to grow our faith to preserve our current health status, avoiding words of strife and choosing words of love instead, in order to preserve and get the best out of our relationships, and to possess sustainable and increased finances... I will tell you why... because in some churches we have been in, in the past... sickness and disease have been glorified as God using this to teach me something... poverty as holiness and humility... things that have no shred of truth in the Word of God as the Lord has helped us go over exhaustively... every sincere saint of God will naturally accept what he or she thinks is the will of God in their lives, not realising that this is the very nature of perversion and deception... the enemy knowing he has no access to them otherwise, but using their own words to kill them!! ...devil enjoys and encourages you to say how broke and sick you are as many times in the day as he can get you to... in fact, you would be giving him a real treat, when at dinner conversations, to sell yourself socially you say... “if cancer doesn’t kill me, a plane crash or car accident will... ha... ha...” ....laughing at your own death warrant you just signed... you will never get


something like this from the mouth of any African I know right now, especially Nigerians, because of revival... but you will be shocked at how many Europeans I have heard say things like this consistently concerning themselves or someone else not realising that they are bridling their whole bodies, and sealing their fates by setting on fire the course of nature (James 3:6)... In conclusion, the Words of the Master Himself...

“...I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgement. For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.” – Matthew 12:36 & 37 KJV

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.” – Psalm 122:6 – 9

What are your predispositions towards Israel the natural seed of Abraham... every single one of our foundation, the first apostles and prophets were Israelites, and the Chief Cornerstone of our Building came as an Israeli... the Lord Jesus Himself... it wasn’t strange that Messiah would come from Israel because they were the only ones on the face of the earth expecting Him... they are still in covenant with God folks, even though it is a zeal without knowledge as described by the apostle Paul, and we former gentiles in the church have much to learn from them to include reverence for the scriptures... the Words of Yahweh... To set yourself up against them is to set yourself up against God... you can do everything else right and make war with Israel, and prosperity would evade you... regardless of any politically correct grudges you may hold, like their treatment of the Palestinians... God is well able to discipline His own children, much like you and me... we have seen repeated evidence of this from history... and He was the One Who brought them back to their own land He swore in covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob... it was indeed prophesied in the scriptures that the nation would be born in one day which was fulfilled on May 14th 1948 when Israel became a nation again...


“...Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Or shall a nation be brought forth in a moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she brought forth her children. Shall I bring to the [moment of] birth and not cause to bring forth? Says the Lord. Shall I Who causes to bring forth shut the womb? Says your God. Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn over her, That you may nurse and be satisfied from her consoling breasts, that you may drink deeply and be delighted with the abundance and brightness of her glory. For thus says the Lord: Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream; then you will be nursed, you will be carried on her hip and trotted [lovingly bounced up and down] on her [God’s maternal] knees. As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. When you see this, your heart shall rejoice; your bones shall flourish like green and tender grass. And the [powerful] hand of the Lord shall be revealed and known to be with His servants, but His indignation [shown] to be against His enemies. For behold, the Lord will come in fire, and His chariots will be like the stormy wind, to render His anger with fierceness, and His rebuke with flames of fire...” – Isaiah 66:8...

The enemy hates them with a passion for producing the Messiah and has consistently sought to wipe them off the face of the earth as history would reveal (the Philistines, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Persians, the Romans, the Nazis’, the Bolsheviks, and in our age, the Iranian leader Ahmadinejad who voiced out wiping Israel off the face of the map-this explains the poverty and economic problems Iran as well as many in the middle east are facing today); and because they have a primary purpose in the end-time plan of God...

“...Your enemies are in tumult, and those who hate You have raised their heads. They lay crafty schemes against Your people and consult together against Your hidden and precious ones. They have said, Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be in remembrance no more. For they have consulted together with one accord and one heart; against You they make a covenant—The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre. Assyria also has joined with them; they have helped the children of Lot [the Ammonites and the Moabites] (all nations inhabiting the geographical areas around Israel today namely Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iran etc. Every single one of these nations... their governments and all of the people can make peace with God and be saved for it is God’s will that all men be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the Truth [Christ Jesus]; in addition to this, His Word is established that “...Whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved”, so these can come under the protection of God’s covenant, much like all of the traditionally Christian western societies can renew their covenant with God, and enjoy His prosperity, peace, and wholeness again... there was even a route into the Old Covenant for every single one of these countries who are Israel’s enemies today, revealing the manifold mercies of our great God... but if they continue to trouble Israel, they, their people and governments will continue to face needless hardships through poverty, crisis and turmoil) and have been an arm to them. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!” Psalm 83:2


The New York Times Thursday October 27th, 2005 headline: “Wipe Israel “off the map” Iranian says... “...Iran’s conservative new president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday that Israel must be “wiped off the map” and that attacks by Palestinians would destroy it...” by Nazila Fathi

“Amin al-Husayni, the Chairman of the Arab Higher Committee, had collaborated with Nazi Germany during World War II. In 1940, he asked the Axis Powers to acknowledge the Arab right "to settle the question of Jewish elements in Palestine and other Arab countries in accordance with the national and racial interests of the Arabs and along the lines similar to those used to solve the Jewish question in Germany and Italy."He spent the second half of World War II in Germany making radio broadcasts exhorting Muslims to ally with the Nazis in war against their common enemies. In one of these broadcasts, he said, "Arabs, arise as one man and fight for your sacred rights. Kill Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history, and religion. This saves your honor. God is with you."” – on the 1948 Arab-Israeli War The Mufti of Jerusalem by Maurice Pearlman (1947), and The Mufti and the Fuehrer by Joseph Schechtman (1965).

it is the war prince, the arch-angel Michael, the Father’s own angel protecting them (Daniel 12:1), even though they have been surrounded by enemies wanting to wipe them off the face of the earth on all sides... protection effective to the extent that we, the Church of Jesus Christ have interceded for them, and not folded our arms and watched them ethnically cleansed like we did during Hitler’s era mentioning that they deserved this as Christ haters, and wilfully forgetting that the first Christ-lovers were all natural Israelites...

It is their covenant we who were wild olives... gentiles without covenant and alien from the common wealth of Israel have been grafted into... and God’s purpose is that we would provoke them to jealousy, so they can come into this fold of the church of our Lord Jesus Christ... the pillar and ground of the Truth. This is increasingly happening in our days, and would intensify in these last days...

The Apostle Paul’s letter to the believers in Rome “I ASK then: Has God totally rejected and disowned His people? Of course not! Why, I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin! [I Sam. 12:22; Jer. 31:37; 33:24-26; Phil. 3:5.] No, God has not rejected and disowned His people [whose destiny] He had marked out and appointed and foreknown from the beginning. Do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? [Ps. 94:14, I Kings 19.]. Lord, they have killed Your prophets; they have demolished Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life. But what is God's reply to him? I have kept for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal! [I Kings 19:18.]. So too at the present time there is a remnant (a small believing minority), selected (chosen) by grace (by God's unmerited favor and graciousness). But if it is by grace (His unmerited favor and graciousness), it is no longer


conditioned on works or anything men have done. Otherwise, grace would no longer be grace [it would be meaningless]. What then [shall we conclude]? Israel failed to obtain what it sought [God's favor by obedience to the Law]. Only the elect (those chosen few) obtained it, while the rest of them became callously indifferent (blinded, hardened, and made insensible to it). As it is written, God gave them a spirit (an attitude) of stupor, eyes that should not see and ears that should not hear, [that has continued] down to this very day. [Deut. 29:4; Isa. 29:10.]. And David says, Let their table (their feasting, banqueting) become a snare and a trap, a pitfall and a just retribution [rebounding like a boomerang upon them]; [Ps. 69:22.]. Let their eyes be darkened (dimmed) so that they cannot see, and make them bend their back [stooping beneath their burden] forever. [Ps. 69:23.]. So I ask, Have they stumbled so as to fall [to their utter spiritual ruin, irretrievably]? By no means! But through their false step and transgression salvation [has come] to the Gentiles, so as to arouse Israel [to see and feel what they forfeited] and so to make them jealous. Now if their stumbling (their lapse, their transgression) has so enriched the world [at large], and if [Israel's] failure means such riches for the Gentiles, think what an enrichment and greater advantage will follow their full reinstatement! But now I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I lay great stress on my ministry and magnify my office, In the hope of making my fellow Jews jealous [in order to stir them up to imitate, copy, and appropriate], and thus managing to save some of them. For if their rejection and exclusion from the benefits of salvation were [overruled] for the reconciliation of a world to God, what will their acceptance and admission mean? [It will be nothing short of] life from the dead! Now if the first handful of dough offered as the first-fruits [Abraham and the patriarchs] is consecrated (holy), so is the whole mass [the nation of Israel]; and if the root [Abraham] is consecrated (holy), so are the branches. [Num. 15:19-21.] But if some of the branches were broken off, while you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among them to share the richness [of the root and sap] of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches and pride yourself at their expense. If you do boast and feel superior, remember it is not you that support the root, but the root [that supports] you. You will say then, Branches were broken (pruned) off so that I might be grafted in! That is true. But they were broken (pruned) off because of their unbelief (their lack of real faith), and you are established through faith [because you do believe]. So do not become proud and conceited, but rather stand in awe and be reverently afraid. For if God did not spare the natural branches [because of unbelief], neither will He spare you [if you are guilty of the same offense]. Then note and appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's gracious kindness to you--provided you continue in His grace and abide in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off (pruned away). And even those others [the fallen branches, Jews], if they do not persist in [clinging to] their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. For if you have been cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and against nature grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much easier will it be to graft these natural [branches] back on [the original parent stock of] their own olive tree. Lest you be self-opinionated (wise in your own conceits), I do not want you to miss this hidden truth and mystery, brethren: a hardening (insensibility) has [temporarily] befallen a part of Israel [to last] until the full number of the ingathering of the Gentiles has come in, And so all Israel will be saved. As it is written, The Deliverer will come from Zion, He will banish ungodliness from Jacob. [Isa. 59:20, 21.] And this will be My covenant (My agreement) with them when I shall take away their sins. [Isa. 27:9; Jer. 31:33.] From the point of view of the Gospel (good news), they [the Jews, at present] are enemies [of


God], which is for your advantage and benefit. But from the point of view of God's choice (of election, of divine selection), they are still the beloved (dear to Him) for the sake of their forefathers. For God's gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.] Just as you were once disobedient and rebellious toward God but now have obtained [His] mercy, through their disobedience, So they also now are being disobedient [when you are receiving mercy], that they in turn may one day, through the mercy you are enjoying, also receive mercy [that they may share the mercy which has been shown to you--through you as messengers of the Gospel to them]. For God has consigned (penned up) all men to disobedience, only that He may have mercy on them all [alike]. Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unfathomable (inscrutable, unsearchable) are His judgments (His decisions)! And how untraceable (mysterious, undiscoverable) are His ways (His methods, His paths)! For who has known the mind of the Lord and who has understood His thoughts, or who has [ever] been His counselor? [Isa. 40:13, 14.] Or who has first given God anything that he might be paid back or that he could claim a recompense? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. [For all things originate with Him and come from Him; all things live through Him, and all things center in and tend to consummate and to end in Him.] To Him be glory forever! Amen (so be it).” - Romans 11

“Give in to God, come to terms with Him and everything will turn out just fine. Let Him tell you what to do; take His Words to heart. Come back to God Almighty and He’ll rebuild your life. Clean house of everything evil. Relax your grip on your money and abandon your gold-plated luxury. God Almighty will be your treasure, more wealth than you can imagine. You’ll take delight in God, the Mighty One, and look to Him joyfully, boldly. You’ll pray to Him and He’ll listen; He’ll help you do what you’ve promised. You’ll decide what you want and it will happen; your life will be bathed in light. To those who feel low you’ll say, ‘Chin up! Be brave!’ and God will save them. Yes, even the guilty will escape, escape through God’s grace in your life.” – Job 22:21 – 30 Message Translation

“...You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavour? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. You are the light of the world-like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father...” – Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:13 – 16) New Living Translation
