But he that is greatest among (within) you shall be your servant.
There are two ways to look at that scripture. One is to see that the true purpose of life is to esteem others greater than yourself. The other is to understand the GREATEST IN YOU is YOUR SERVANT. But that is another paper for another time. Tonight I wanted to share something a bit more personal. I wanted to write something from my heart, to share what I have been going through spiritually, what I have been thinking about, and what has been troubling me lately.
The greatest thing lately is that I have found that I have no real deep insight to share with anyone, meaning I have no manna from heaven… except the only message I know needs to be spread today, and it’s so simple and wonderful, that I was so surprised that sharing it recently in my video sparked such outrage. So shaken by this, I found myself so confused, that the simplicity of the message was lost on people who seem to be focused only on things that are complex and unattainable.
2 Corinthians 11:3
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Our EGO deceives us through our intellect, our desire to be intellectual, smart, wise in our own eyes, and when we allow our EGO to corrupt the very simple message of CHRIST IN YOU/AS YOU, Mankind’s lust for wisdom, power, and pride corrupts it, making the EGO god, and killing the very truth of who you are, through a bunch of unnecessary complications mankind created to keep mankind’s EGO in control, and keep the TRUTH of who we are hidden. Which is why once that TRUTH, in its simplicity is shared, people go OFF!
1 Corinthians 1
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. 18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
Now this is for those who can hear it… WE ARE TO TAKE UP OUR CROSS. Christ’s is our Cross. It is when we CROSS from the ignorance and death of who we think we are, to the Life of knowing who we truly are. But that is another paper indeed.
I wanted to write this short paper on something that has truly been eating away at me. So much so, for a moment, it caused me to second guess about everything I do on this blog, youtube, and facebook.
What began as a simple desire to share with the world insights I believe I have been blessed with, in hopes that it would somehow better the lives of those reading, has become something I truly wasn’t prepared for. Hence the title of this essay, “No King Here”.
What I mean by this is, lately I been receiving a good deal of criticism and a great deal of praise, both of which I do not believe I deserve. Don’t get me wrong I love to provoke thought, and I love even more that something I write, or say, seems to do good in another’s life. Also, I don’t want to be misunderstood, I am not a fragile bird who gets all down in the dumps when people call me a “false prophet, deceiver, messenger of satan, possessed, evil, etc” to be honest I think those who do such have also put me on some kind of a platform; they do this by stating that I have been given some kind of power that “little old me” could possibly mislead people by such power. Now the idea that I can save someone spiritually or damn someone spiritually is not just funny, it is sad.
Sad because I only share what I share because I have the desire to do so. In addition I do so without expecting anything in return. I am not a pastor, I don’t lead a congregation, I’m not the head of anything, not even my family, my wife and I are partners at that 🙂 and we both understand that we can only be who we are. We love each other in good times and bad. That is why our marriage is blessed, we don’t put unrealistic expectations on the other, and don’t believe the other to be anything but who they are. Which is something that more people should do, not just in marriage, but in life, along the road to spiritual enlightenment. Don’t make anyone to be a King over you.
I often receive emails, like one today, where I am asked to give further proof of the things I write. Many of my readers, don’t really know if they should believe what is written, so they take my essays to their “spiritual leaders” for their okay… Even today, I was asked to give more proof, “scriptural” so that one reader could then provide more proof to their pastor, because their pastor says I haven’t backed up what is written with enough scriptural proof. Is it just me, or does someone see a problem with this. This person, has a) made their pastor to be the end all be all of their faith, and b) because of this has then come to me, to Prove myself more.
They said therefore unto him, What miracle will you show us, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work
Herod wanted the same thing. PROVE YOURSELF! I am all for giving every person an answer, but not when the answer has already been given and the person rejects it and says, “If this is the answer REALLLLLLY prove it to me.”
The point of this whole essay is I have no need. I am not trying to prove anyone wrong or prove myself right, I am simply sharing what I believe to be true. And now it is up to you to do what you will with it. This is your life, your walk, your amazing journey, I am simply a passerby that has your attention for but a moment. And so, I offered not other scriptures to prove what I wrote to be true, nor should I ever have to defend or prove myself to anyone, but God.
Which is why, the condemnation I received the other night really shook me to the core and I wanted this essay to be an explanation of sorts. You see, when I received the blow back openly and privately from sharing a simple video on the power of “Love”, it really sort of put the proverbial straw on the camel’s back and broke me.
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
I found myself having to do what I never have had to do before, to answer critics. I dare say, even defend my beliefs, which don’t need defence. However, I felt that if I didn’t, people who may be paying attention would think that I had no answers for them. You see that is what the problem is to begin with… I am not the person people should turn to to learn about the things of God, sure I love to share what I know, but I am no spiritual leader, and I will not wear that mantle regardless of how many tell me that is who I am…. You see, where many others would be happy to have others think they somehow know more, or have learned more, or are greater than others, I see that my life is not my own, not of my own making, and thus, I cannot take any credit for anything anyone has learned. If someone has learned something from my blog, or videos, they did not learn it from me, I simply was there to help them remember what they already knew (which is why they know it to be true)… A person cannot teach anyone about themselves, or God… Only God can do that, and only they can do that.
And as for those that can’t hear what I hear, or know what I know, that doesn’t threaten of bother me. Because I know a person can only believe what they can handle at that time. So for those that were looking for debate, it wouldn’t matter if I proved the point correct one hundred thousand times, they would never see it, because they are blinded to it. (for now)… If truth be told, no answer I can ever give someone who is “dead” set in their beliefs will ever change their stance, or view-point. But that doesn’t mean one day they won’t. It just means that when you enter into a new understanding, you will begin to see others in not their best light (because most you will find who attack you are in darkness)
2 Timothy 3
1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
———- 7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Now if I may share what I believe Paul is warning Timothy about here, is not about the “last days of the literal world” – as this was advice he sent out long before you and I came on the scene. But I believe he was telling Timothy about how in the “Last Days of Our Ignorance” perilous times will come (be revealed). I believe the closer we get to seeing the very nature of God, which is love, peace, humility, compassion, acceptance, etc, and etc, that we will begin to see others in the world in a less than godly way. I believe he is saying, that the closer you get to the end of your carnal life, the more ugly the world and those around you will appear. The last line I quoted is by far my favorite, EVER LEARNING BUT NEVER ABLE TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH… This really does sum up so many today. So proud of all they are learning or have learned that they would scour to the world to find one speck in another’s beliefs while ignoring the void of love in their heart. Now scripture is clear, one day, ALL WILL COME TO THE UNITY OF THE FAITH… But what is the KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH that they are not coming to understand… Well it is the very thing I have been for weeks now trying to share here on my blog, facebook, and youtube, also it is the main “hidden” message of my book. The KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH is the KNOWLEDGE OF WHO YOU REALLY ARE. Look at this scripture.
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: — That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive
Look at that for a moment, the Knowledge of the TRUTH (Christ), also means to come to the knowledge of the SON (child) of God, and to come UNTO A PERFECT MAN, and UNTO THE MEASURE of the STATURE OF THE FULLNESS (Notice is does not say “part of”, or some, or separate from, but it says FULLNESS) — THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST (which is the power and wisdom of God, God’s anointed revealed in you (who people think you to be) in the literal world) — The knowledge of the truth is to get people to get to the FULLNESS OF CHRIST in their waking life. — MEANING, we become CHRIST, not as Christ, not a part of Christ, but the FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY.
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him (CHRIST), which is the head of all principality and power
The very work I am laboring (only God knows why, for this is my greatest desire), the very thing I daily try to do is to get people to wake up to who they are. Not who they think they are, that is the ANTI-CHRIST… Who you think you are is the very enemy of who you really are, which is why you and I suffer and seem to be at war within ourselves. Which is why it is so important to get everyone to come to the Knowledge of who they are, so we will NO LONGER BE SPOILED by carnal philosophy, debate, deceit, traditions of men, or be tossed back and forth with every other wind of doctrine (teaching) there is.
And as Paul warned Timothy of the things he will experience in the “last days of his own ignorance”, I believe I too am experiencing as well. Like Paul, I am saddened to see so many people quick to condemn, attack, and tear down a simple message of love and peace. I understand they can only believe what they believe for the moment, I understand they are not my enemy (though they may see me as their enemy) but it is still hurtful to me that I have come to a place where I can no longer just keep this great understanding to myself. I have veiled my face for long enough, meaning I did my best for years to give people what I believed they could handle and was palatable for them, understanding not everyone is ready to hear that everything they put their faith in since childhood is in fact a clever deceitful lie designed to keep them from finding out the beauty of who they truly are. Which is the only thing that will set anyone free, THE TRUTH.
If you are waiting for salvation, you are not saved. If you are waiting for a savior to return you are helpless and in need of rescue. If you believe you are not worthy to be who you were created to be (the Image of God) what a sad lie you are living. It is like we have been trapped in a cage called “Ego” – and this non-existent creation we created has now become our task master. It now rules us, it keeps up scared, tells us we are no good, that we don’t measure up and can never measure up, it KEEPS US LIVING A LIFE THAT IS MORE LIKE DEATH…. the reason is WHO WE REALLY ARE is being held captive by this insecure, hateful, prideful, false identity which in a clever act of deceit has ensured its own existence by creating a religious belief that YOU CAN NEVER BE THE VERY THING YOU ARE!
This lie is so well and far spread that people kill, condemn, attack, tear down, and torment others, and they do this in the name of a god, this false identity cleverly created in its own image. Which is why people today, strap bombs to their chests and kill innocents, or we go off to war against other countries in the name of this god, and make legislation to keep people impoverished, sick, in debt, and far from liberty. This trickery began long before we were here, and if people don’t wake from it will continue long after we (in this form) are gone.
This lie dangles the carrot in front of us saying, if we only do this, or do that things will turn around for us. While also saying, we are imperfect, lost, dead in sin, hell bound, and that we can do nothing about it, that we must wait for some magic man in the sky to return, as opposed to coming to the revelation that the SAVIOR is within every one of us.
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
The SAVIOR is our LIFE, which is hid in Christ, which is hid in who we think we are. You will find that the scriptures are all the things people state them to be, but you have to SEE the SPIRIT of what these scriptures mean to get out of the only hell (your ignorant suffering) you are trapped in.
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY! Both parts, for one speaks about how we are to perceive and treat others, for we are all one, and the next part speaks of who we really are and how we should understand ourselves to be.
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others
That’s right we need to stop thinking we are better than others for what we believe or how we live. That goes for EVERYONE, not one of us is better than the worst of us. And we MUST do unto others as we would want done unto ourselves, because in fact how we treat others is how we truly treat ourselves. Also, stop looking at ourselves as being the center of the universe and understand we are part of the whole, and the whole is the FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY. Either ignorant of this (dead in Adam) or Risen (enlightened in Christ).
Now look at the NEXT KEY INFORMATION!
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.
I can’t spell it out any more plain than this. We are the exact same as Christ Jesus, and this is the KNOWLEDGE we must come to. We are all ONE IN THE SAME and as the SAME we are ONE. We are literally instructed to have the exact same mindset as Christ Jesus, meaning we must believe we too are the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON/DAUGHTER of GOD. That we can do nothing or ourselves. That our KINGDOM is not this world. That we are not of this world. And we MUST overcome who we think we are in this world.
Meaning people, the EGO has got to go.
Now I understand many people aren’t ready to hear that they will NEVER FIND SALVATION in confessing a literal name of a literal man from two thousand years ago, but I DO KNOW when they CONFESS the NAME OF CHRIST as THEIR OWN, when they PICK UP THEIR CROSS, AND DO AS HE/JESUS DID, that salvation is ours. And what will be will saved from? —- OUR IGNORANT EGO/ANTI-CHRIST – who is now sitting on the THRONE OF GOD (which is our mind, point to your temples people what is between them).
That’s right the ANTI-CHRIST sitting on the THRONE OF GOD, declaring himself to be GOD, is WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE… God’s throne is YOUR HEART/MIND. “KNOW YOU NOT THAT YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD” — And right now, who do you believe is in control of your life? — Most would say “who they believe themselves to be is in control” instead of dying to themselves, and saying I AM in control. Not my will (ego) but thine (God) be done.
In any event, this is why I have been writing plainly to you all, speaking the way I have been speaking, and not really holding anything back. The reason is I know that a VEILED FACE (understanding) is not going to lead anyone into the promise land (freedom/peace/righteousness/purpose)… As we saw Moses who VEILED his face, didn’t do such a great job, but kept people in the wilderness until they died.
And when I began sharing, at first it felt so liberating to finally step out from the fear of what others might think. I mean, let’s be real, I have nothing gain from any of this, and it is only my hope that by my sharing it will help others to also seek God’s face (understanding) for themselves. Not go to me, or some pastor, or religious leader who seems to have some answers, but go within. Pray “teach me the truth no matter what the cost”, ask questions and you will get answers, and be steadfast in it. Don’t ever stop, as I never stop but continue each day to learn more, to see more, and to be free more. I know God is faithful to answer every one of these prayers.
Because I know that if you are praying for the Truth no matter the cost, that is evidence you are in the process of coming to know the truth. Only those who do not pray this, and believe they have it all figured out will not pray this, and that is evidence they will not receive the truth. SO SEEK AND FIND, KNOCK AND THAT DOOR WILL OPEN, the gate is your mind, and CHRIST is your LIFE WAITING for the moment to free you from every idol (I doll) (false dead image of a living being)
So back to the purpose of this essay. Last night I took down my facebook page, but thanks to come emails I received I realized perhaps I don’t need to hide from what has been coming my way lately, but I should embrace it. It’s funny I don’t mind the attacks, but when people state I am the voice of God, or I am this, or I am that, I get very uncomfortable. The reason is I am no different from anyone, in fact I am, as Paul says, less than the least of you. I don’t consider myself to be a perfect, whole being (although I know we are all). I don’t consider every trial such a great pleasure (though I know it is). And I don’t have all the answers (Yet I know we all already do).
You see part of the reason I do my videos in such a strange way is because I don’t want people to look to me as someone special, even though admittedly I love the comments I get when something I write or say has touched someone. But I barely know what I am going to speak about when I do a video, and like tonight when I sit down to write, I have an idea of what I may write about but then thoughts flood my head and I go elsewhere. You see, I know all I have, I did not earn, I simply came to believe it was meant to be. With faith all things are possible. I don’t consider myself as some guru, or prophet, or leader, that’s why I get troubled when people state “you are leading people astray”… As if any of us has the power to lead anyone anywhere. I can do nothing of myself (my ego)… Everytime I act of that insecure, prideful, mask, I get into trouble… even though I have come to believe that even that is carefully orchestrated to bring about a perfect end to my ignorance and yours. All things work together indeed.
So, I wanted to run last night. Hide from it all. I’ve done it before. But then where would that leave all of this desire I have to share with people. I make it clear that I am probably a bigger train wreck emotionally than all of those reading or watching, so why all of the attention, both negative and positive? The truth is I don’t know, but I believe there is a great part of me that wants to be used to change the world for the better, a part of me that desires above all else to help people come to see how truly beautiful they really are… BECAUSE I DESIRE TO SEE THAT ABOUT MYSELF.
You see, what we do to other we do to ourselves. What we sow we reap. But sometimes, I need to pause and question why am I letting some people’s comments bother me, both good and bad. And in that pause I find myself again. I find my head again (Christ). I find that I am where I am, and what others believe about me, or say about me, is their bag not mine.
Look, people wanted Jesus to be their KING – their spiritual LEADER… And Jesus would have none of it. Because he, like I, understood to do so would be the very death of that person’s spiritual growth. The instant you make someone, like me or anyone else a SPIRITUAL LEADER to you, instead of just someone who is sharing something that you already know and simply have forgotten, you stunt your own growth and you refuse to enter into the land of promise that waits for you.
When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
You see, when those people were coming against me, I had so many other people encouraging me and telling me such wonderful things. Things like, you are the only one that has this truth, you are the mouthpiece of God, etc, etc… in fact they were saying that I was something greater than I am, and greater than them, and like Jesus when the people were amazed at what he had done in the land, he knew they wanted him to be their king, and like Jesus, I ALSO DEPARTED… I want no part of that. This is why I almost shut down my facebook account for good last night, and thought perhaps it was time to depart from everyone for good. People were starting to think higher of me than they should, on both sides of the equation. Some saying I am the mouthpiece of the devil, others saying I am the mouthpiece of God… the truth is, we are all both.
When we are led by our ego, we speak from the flesh (devil/ignorance/lies/lusts)… when we are led by the spirit, we speak from the spirit (God/Truth/Love)… And as long as you can’t tell the difference between the two, you will be hopelessly doubleminded and at war within.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
I digress, so I departed for a night. Took a breather and was in prayer all night, deep reflection for those that don’t like the word prayer :)… Up until 4 am, in my bed couldn’t sleep. Telling myself all sorts of lies about myself, I don’t measure up, I’m not the best husband, father, son, friend, I am stupid, ugly, dumb, etc, etc… and this temptation lasted all night. And I knew that was all it was, but I also knew it would pass and I would shake it off me. You see sometimes, you need those moments where you condemn yourself to realize you are none of those things.
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life
You know when those times come, just understand that this (sin/foolish thinking) is in fact doing a good work for you, it is reminding you that when you condemn yourself YOU HURT YOURSELF, it is a great teacher this thing called the LAW of DEATH (ignorance). But if you are faithful unto this death, you will be given a crown of life for hanging in there and coming to the knowledge that you indeed are perfect, spotless, and beautiful in Christ (your true life).
While I was in this DEATH mindset, one thing kept coming to mind. And it was how so many followed Jesus so long as he fed them bread… But the instant he said, you must be as he is, they said he was blasphemous, a liar, deceiver, and condemned him, lied about him… You see so long as he was opening up the scriptures bit by bit for them, they LOVED HIM, but the instant he said, you have to EAT MY FLESH and DRINK MY BLOOD – In essence, you have to be ME, they were like SEE YA JESUS!
And this is the same thing I am beginning to find today. People want their bellies filled (carnal thinking) filled with insights and revelation, but we aren’t to LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, but EVERY WORD that comes out of GOD’S MOUTH… And this is the WORD YOU MUST DIGEST,
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.
Put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts
I will be no King over any of you, I am not a spiritual leader, I am just who I am, and I am the same as you, as Jesus, as anymore… for we are all ONE.
Good ole Israel begged for a KING OVER THEM. God didn’t want that. God doesn’t anyone to come between the unity of God’s spirit. But carnal man (egokind) will always seek a King to rule them, to lead them, because they prefer being dumb sheep instead of realizing they are to be SHEPHERD’S THEMSELVES.
But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep
So enter in, become the Shepherd, because… we are lights of this world, living epistles, the word of God revealed, the children of the most high, and to believe you are anything less is to SIN (miss the mark of who you really are).
I apologise if my short absence caused anyone any trouble at all. I can’t promise it won’t happen again, but I can promise, that it is for everyone’s good, mine and yours. For everything that happens in life is destined to happen, and eventually it will all bring us to a place where the only King we will have, is LOVE (God is Love and Truth and Spirit).

“The Truth Will Change You”
I Dont think you know it all my friend…..and that doesn’t make me any better then you….. just from a servant aspect,that is the proof of who is your master…. and the fruit you bear when hooked up to the vine….I’ts not being boastful or proud ,,,Its who I’ve become in CHRIST……..There is a fine line in scripture that says we can be angry and not sin ,or to set a goal and desire a prize.rather then lust after it till it becomes an idol and obstacle in your life…..Thanks for your insight ..PS….I just made a deposit in your Heavenly account………..We are rich ….now lets show the World Why,,,,,He is waiting……………….Patrick
I agree with Penny 100 percent. Well said Penny. We can only serve God ourselves not how people think we should serve God. To serve how others think we should serve is to serve the thoughts and imaginations of man. As for me (a Son of God) and my house (the Temple of God), we will serve the LORD (Josh 24:15)
Not all see and hear the truth at this time but as for me Lord I will follow after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. Jacob you bring for truth and it is not you who I follow but the truth that flows from you as do many agree who listen to what you share that the Father has given you. Your God is my God and you are my people. (Ruth 1:15-16)
Many are hung between two opinions whether to follow what man (ego) tells them or what the Father tells them (Spirit). If they follw the truth listen to the Father (Spirit) if they listen to man (ego) then they listen to their own thoughts and imaginations. Most when given this choice who listen to themselves never say a word. (I Kings 18:21).
Jesus, being the Word of God, ask one simple question to those who follow Him; Will ye also go away? (John 6:67)
Never let man (ego) cause you to doubt in the Spirit in which you are and leave what you are called out and sent here to do. Keep up the faith brother be the Son of God you are created to be and Shine Brother Shine in this world of darkness.
Early on in our relationship, my husband was the first man in my life to say to me, “I will not be your God.” Most men, up to that point, had demanded that position. Especially in the religious system. I say that to say this to you: They could only be God to me, if I wanted/needed them to be God.
It is because of that experience that I am able to quickly recognize when someone (man or woman) is trying to fill that role.
I can, without a doubt, say that I have not had that experience in my interaction with you or your writings/videos.
Quite the contrary. Your expressions continue to awaken the Christ in me, revealing, to me, who I really am. If they don’t, I will choose to dismiss them.
That is my “responsibility”, my God-given “ability-to-respond” to Him, if I am willing.
That is the key. So many, I used to be one, are looking for someone to be their source of spiritual nourishment. It reminds me of a mother I saw chew up her infants food & spit it into their mouth. Only because, she was feeding them something that was beyond their capability to ingest. There are many spiritual infants, of all ages, who will goo-goo & gaa-gaa at you only to spit it back in your face, followed by a stern “prove-it!” They’re just not ready for the responsibility of their own truth.
And because each of us have an ego & are very capable of getting carried away by others compliments, it is something we all must maintain an awareness of. It is just as important to be aware of the negative comments that feed the part of our ego that tells us we deserve to be less than who we are.
Be who you Be Jacob.
I have a heartfelt appreciation & understanding for all that you suffer in order to bring forth the expression of Christ that you do.
It inspires (in-spirits) me.
Penny…what wisdom you revealed…”They’re just not ready for the responsibility of their own truth.” BINGO!…How true that is…Knowledge puffs up…Religion is riddled with empty “puffs” of knowledge…The proverb is meant to show that knowledge leaves a void…an intentional void, meant to be filled with understanding or experience…2Ti 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth….That understanding that experience is the pure love of Christ…It is the Christ (truth of who we are… revealed)Who tames the power of the dog..The one David
speaks about. This power of the dog is when one lives for self…When the truth of who you are is revealed..YOU WILL KNOW what the first commandment is for…You see when the commands are given we are to come by way of those commands last to the first in that order. for the last from God’s mouth is the first for us. I mean how foolish is it to tell one who is still carnal to love God with all his or her whole mind soul and strength?…LOL Unless you be as the greatest man born of woman (least in the kingdom) John the Baptist =mans knowledge of truth who sees the need for his decrease and the need for the increase=growth of the Lamb of God (truth of who we are in its infancy) You cannot and will not love God with all the fixins’..nope no way…God reveals who we are and none other…It might be later but it certainly can be now….Thank You Penny for that shared wisdom
Where most have a misunderstanding is they have no concept that there are Sons of God who are sent into this earth (John 17:18) and that there are Sons of God who were cast into this earth (Rev 12:9).
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. (KJV)
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (KJV)
It is not about others our Father has everything in control because it was Him who give those who were cast out into this earth over to a reprobate mind and only our Father can remove this stupor from them. No matter how much we would like to think we have done something we can do nothing to change the Fathers will only He can change the minds of each Son.
I say this because no man lead me to Christ the Father did. No man was around when the Father called me out only the Father was there to reveal to me who I am. It is important to understand it is about ourselves as we learn who we are in the Father.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
If I were the only soul in this earth the Fathers word would still stand true. To many focus on others instead of themselves. How can you possibly help others if you have not helped yourself first?
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. (KJV)
We only share our experiences we have with the Holy Spirit with others nothing more, which is exactly what the scriptures are all about as you read of others like John or Paul who shared their experiences with others through their writtings. It is our desire that all come to the Glory of the Lord in all wisdom and knowledge but only the Father can do this.
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)
I am the way, I am the truth and I am the life because I am the Son of God but it is the Father who chooses who comes to Him. I know I didn’t choose the Father when He called me out He chose me.
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (KJV)
Those who have been sent into this earth have been ordained to bring forth truth, to shine our lights so that all can see the way and understand who they are in the Father. Pray for your brothers this is all you can really do no matter what your ego tells you otherwise.
The only pain I have is seeing and hearing the pain of others so I ask the Father that my light shine so that others will not be afraid while in the darkness of thier own minds. When I say I love you I have no concept of the meaning of this word Love, not while here in this earth using a carnal mind but I can and do say I love you in the Spirit in which we all are in the Father who has all understanding.
I truly would be sad to not read your posts, I understand you do not want to be put on a pedistal, besides that is alot of preasure, but you do not realise how rare it is to interpret God’s Word the way you have shown us, Its like you unlocked something in all of us.
I recently found out my spouse has been cheating on me for a long time…and through all the pain I smiled in thanks to God, because I too believe in truth no matter what the cost, and felt this trial is a blessing, it has to be, God is remolding my preconceived ideas of what my life should be, and I know something better is waiting around the corner.
As one we all need a break at times, and like a great friend we are sad when we dont see them for awhile, but so joyed when we run into them again.
much love to you and your family
Thank you so much Jillian,
I am so touched that you wrote what you wrote and also so sorry to hear about your current hard times. I went through the same thing many years ago, and even though it may be heartbreaking right now just trust that good will come of it, in my experience, regardless of what has happened to me good always came of it. The quicker we get on with forgiving others and especially ourselves the quicker we get on with LIVING life instead of just getting by day by day. But I know this is a long a difficult road for so many, and all I can do is pray and hope and be here for them. So don’t worry I’m not going anywhere, in fact I have a great article going up this weekend (if I finish it) between work, family, study, and fun it always amazes me that there is always time to do this, what I love so much. I hope you have an excellent week, and never let your head sink keep it held high, and no matter what, remember whatever comes of our lives and trials is always meant to be. Never second guess things you have done, just embrace what is to come. Much love to you Jillian, jacob
T.J………..Ok……………peace out in Love bra….. Ive been serving The Lord for 35 years………..And studying for 35 years ……From the ministry the Lord has given me ….We have led many to the saving grace and knowledge of His dear Son …….I prayed with murderer’s ,pimps prostitutes and drug dealers …………….I carried aids infested friends from the brink of death in lower Manhattan to their homes and back to their families,,,,gave out thousands of bibles and gospels of John on the nyc subways…..Some have gone on to be Great pastor’s today I am greatful to all of them……I know what I know from a mouth to mouth and face to face relationship with Our Heavenly father,,,,,and never have I been told to”chill out dude” …..All I said in The previous comments I meant and that is the good news…………That we who remain until the end can and will overcome the last enemy …….which is Death…….Just as Jesus did after His hour of crucifixtion….The Glory of the Father filled His mortal body………peace out bro…..Were in the army of Love………………Patrick
I meant no disrespect to you partner. Obviously you think very highly of yourself, otherwise you wouldn’t have felt the need to point out your good works to me. Just remember to give God the credit for those works man. It is God who works in man to will and do of His good pleasure. It is God, not man who is good. It is God, not man who is the savior of all men. It is God, not man who draws us to Christ. God can’t fail, Patrick. There are no ifs with Him. Christ is who endures til the end, it is the ego, who we believe and think ourselves to be in this world that is crucified, killed off, cast into the lake of fire. There is nothing we have to do of ourselves because we can do nothing of ourselves. It is only God, just as it has always been and always will be. Everything else is an illusion.
Patrick, I think there was a miscommunication between you both. And I have to say, knowing both of you, you bother ae great men of God, and I am grateful for everything you both share. If I don’t say it enough it is simply because I can’t at the time. Love to you both, Jacob
Jacob, be who you are and do what you do, man, just stop worrying so much about how others perceive you. What does it truly matter anyway? At the end of your journey, none of those people(egos) are going to be there anyway, it will just be God, so focus on Him and less on everyone else. That is all I was trying to say.
Patrick, chill out dude. I recall no one calling you a cook or a quack. We believe what we believe acoording to what God has willed for us to believe so far. As far as there being a future Kingdom on this earth, maybe there will be, I don’t know nor do I personally care. I prefer to look towards Heaven and store my treasure there rather than WORK for something I hope to attain in the future.
Personally, I don’t believe we are here to work our way up the ranks as Kings and priests. There is only one King who is Christ who is the entire body of mankind and His kingdom is not of this world; such is why the ego rules and the dance goes on here. Desiring to rule over someone else in the here and now or in the future is the vanity of all vanities. No one is better than anyone else. LIke I said before, we all dance the same dance; some dance a little funkier than others, but it’s still the same dance and God is the DJ. We are here to learn the truth by experiencing the lie. Through darkness the light of our Father will shine. There is nothing we have to work for and nothing we have to change. God is in control of it all and nothing can ever fail. All we need to do is go to our Father, nothing more, nothing less. He will provide us with everything we need because all any of us need is Him.
I truly wish all of you the best and I look forward to the day we all know as we are now known and love as we are now loved. In the mean time peace to you all and happy journeys.
Jacob, thanks again man for all of the shared e-mails and phone conversations. Your lamp is lit my man, all you have do is let it shine, God will keep the oil flowing. I love you bro.
TJ, you know how much I love you man! Sorry I haven’t been on here as much. I have should have stated it many times before! I appreciate all you do, and look forward to talk with you again. Much love Jacob!
TJ……………lets not forget the Vanity aspect of our preconception’s……Vanity of vanities all is vanity says the preacher………..So we as the recipients of the bold fresh new move of God ,must be equipped with all the wisdom Of God the Father,in order to be effectual in the Leadership and counsel the Lord is moving us and preparing us for……All of this unveiling and revelation is for the purpose of Ruling and reigning in the Kingdom in the earth……And if we don’t get it right we will miss the greatest Spirit led opportunity since the 1st century…….So what??? in the worlds eyes we are a bunch of cooks and quacks…..but in His eyes we are KINGS and PRIESTS……what else is new under the sun?????……..Patrick Parisi……………..march on upward and inward…..In His Love
I just want to say we are all in the same boat. No matter how much wisdom any of us have been blessed from our Father in Heaven, we are all, each and everyone of us, still very much attached to our ego. Jacob, that is really why you have been troubled and shaken by other’s condemnations. I am not judging you bro, so don’t take it that way. I am just being completely honest. I know what I am talking about here because I am the same way. Each and everyone of us just want to be loved and accepted. It hurts when others attack us, reject us, or what not. Sometimes we cry, sometimes we fight back, sometimes we agree with it all and do what others want so we can gain their acceptance and so called love. We all do this because we are all the same. It is the ego’s dance and we are all on the dance floor. We look to others for things that only our Father in Heaven can truly provide. How can any of us ever rest when we are constantly seeking what only our Father can provide us from other men? We cannot. Yes, the truth is, we are Christ but we don’t function as Christ in this world. Christ said my kingdom is not of THIS WORLD. This world is MAN’S KINGDOM. In this world, Christ is not King, he is the prisoner. In this world, our ego is king. No matter how much we learn about the truth of God, Jesus, Christ, and ourselves, as long as we are in this world, we will function through our ego. We can try as hard as we want to love others and treat others as ourselves but it truly is a vain effort because we have to work hard at it. Again, where is the rest in that? We have to work hard to control our emotions and bite our tongues when others anger us. We have to work hard to pick ourselves back up after others have hurt us and beat us down with their words. It all takes so much work. When are we going to realize we are still tilling the earth by the sweat of our brow? We are not here to fix our world. We are not here to even fix ourselves. We are not broken! We are here to learn the truth. And the truth is, NOTHING IS POSSIBLE WITH MAN(EGO) BUT ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD. People, this world/reality is not our friggin destination, it is OUR JOURNEY!!!!!! We are not here to play God and try to fix this place or ourselves or anyone else. This is not our home, it is not our Kingdom. It is our hell, our prison. It is the place of the dead. And like it or not, we are all still dead because we are all still attached to our ego. Sure we can say someone is good. But who’s standards are we basing that on? Our own. On the flip side of the coin, we can also say someone is an evil, wretched, piece of crap, but again, who’s standards are we basing that on? Again, our own. We can say we love this person or that person, but why do we say that? Because they praised us or made us feel good about ourselves? What happens when those same people hurt us? Will we still feel the same through that hurt and pain? We are kidding ourselves if we for even on moment think any of us are capable of true, unconditional love. We truly cannot even fathom what that truly is or means because the love we have in this reality is conditional. Don’t believe me? Look at all of the divorces, broken homes and broken families. I know a so called man of God who turned his back on his son because of his sexuality. Tell me, is that unconditional love? Again, I am not judging anyone, I am simply being brutally honest. I care less and less everyday what people think of me. I am finally waking up to the fact that this whole reality is only an illusion. It is a manifestation of the carnal mind (ego). Again, the mind generates our reality. The carnal mind, which we are all subject to generates the lie and the mind of Christ that none of us are subject to yet, generates the truth. The only other thing I can say is stop seeking men for anything and seek your Father in Heaven for EVERYTHING!!
No darkness (negitive/carnal thoughts and imaginations) can ever put out the light (truth) of God. I sent you an email and I will call you next week. I was out of town when this came out and I just had a chance to read “No King Here”. My mother has gone to be in the presence of the Father. I can’t express how happy I am for her.
Your words are always a great encouragement man. Thank you very much dude. I’ll ring you if I don’t hear from you. peace
Jacob…my freind. Do I need to come up to NY and whack some sense into ya? LOL…Brother here is something to help. “the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried”…In the essay you put this line of scripture… This trick when seen how it wirks (look you can have an accent in type) like all others looses its luster and fails to mesmerise. These are past sentences that the truth has set you free from. Notice “that you may be tried”? Here is the sense that I was hopping a #12 size boot could put into ya… To think carnally is one thing but DONT HEAR CARNALLY EITHER…There is no condemnation in Christ…the #1 rule in listening….I feel ya too Jacob…the desire is strong to let others know…I told my wife I feel like I should write a book …but I dont know how it ends yet…Secret…when a person tells another that he or she is leading one astray…then that person is led by another person (fleshly)…cuz according to scripture for those who need such a thing…Israel (your new nature) like sheep (truth) have already gone astray…The truth (sheep) needs a shepherd (israel..new nature) to lead (manifest) the truth (sheep) from the place where truth is kept (Christ)…Christ is the God designed image of man…That is the place that is hidden from us…That is the treasure in the field the pearl of great price etc…Jacob…God wont allow you to quit…heh…I see you made it a day though…
much love brother to you and all the ones that took time to lift you up….
No man, no way will I ever quit. Also that size twelve shoe I have used on myself many times LOL… In any event, thanks again man for your support and insights. Have the best day ever, Jacob
Jacob…from the time I began to listen to your videos, and read your essays, I have been comforted…I know it is because my heart rejoices when I find the manifested sons of God busy about ministry of reconcilliation. I too have experienced many of the same things you mention in your essay…and sometimes I have drawn away from the crowds for a time…until humility wraps me up, fresh wounds heal, and there is only the scars I bear in my body of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is wonderful what you have shared concerning EGO, it can so block a good view…of Christ within. Thanks Jacob for proclaiming the truth …no greater love hath a man than this…that he lay down his life for a friend…peace Cynthia
Thank you verry much for your comment! In one of my essays I wrote “Let go of my Ego” (for all the wafflers out there) — the ego of mankind gets us in all sorts of trouble, LOL. Please keep your comments and insights coming, along with humility they wrap me up too. Peace Jacob
Brilliant Jacob, Brilliant. You are only saying what Jesus Himself said after all, when He said, “Why do you call me good? Only God is Good. But then He also says, “But if you’ve seen ME, (if), then you’ve seen God”, but unfortunately as you know, the ‘I’m just me’, person is totally unable to ‘see’, ‘hear’, that 1+1=1. (yet).
Fear not my brother, such temptations can only push you deeper into your union. After all you cannot go backwards. Where would you go? He within you has the words of eternal life. Nothing else quenches your thirst does it :). I know. Once caught no escape, thank goodness.
Thanks always for your caring/sharing.
John, thank you so much for your words, that means a lot to me my man. “why does anyone call anyone good?” the answer is always because of GOD in them, peace Jacob
AMEN!!! We must walk in the footsteps of our Lord, it’s hard to rejoice when people call you heretic and all sorts of thing but the a child of God…Like you told me the walk gets lonely… so you know that the only voice you will hear is God’s voice!!!!! You doing something that stirring so much admiration and controversy(I know it’s God doing the work AMEN)….Be Bless!!!
So awesome seeing your comments. I always pray it’s God, then again I don’t think it really can be anything ever but. Much love to you and yours, 🙂
Hey Jacob I am new to your writings and videos as my mom told me about you. Glad to see that Christ is rising within you even though it is not a pleasant experience at times. But the joy that comes in the morning after giving birth to that wonderful manchild is so worth it. Believe it or not there are lots of people who believe what you are saying. There is a man (Tony DenHartog you can find online) in Australia that I have listened to for many years who teaches the same thing. Only he has overcome a lot of the comments that are still trying to hold you down. You will overcome this as Christ within us growing up can not be stopped anymore than a teenager can remain a teenager. But as you must know being around people there are levels of growth. Infant, toddler, child, pre teen, teen and then making that awful transformation from child to man, Lord the teen years are the worst. You ping pong back and forth from acting childish to acting like an adult and somehow you do manage to come out on the other side of it all. We can not stop our growth and growing pains hurt, so hang in there. I’m really proud of you and that you have come so far. Only spending lots of quiet time and very loving moments with Jesus can accomplish what you are growing into. I loved those moments with Jesus when I was first learning who I was and who we all are. Jesus is my life and my very breath and no matter how bad or good I act no one can ever take that away from me. He loves me truly, deeply. I love when I find someone else who is learning who they truly are and that the Kingdom of God is N U. Christ spoke to me once many years ago as He was sitting on me telling me I was His throne. It was a thunderous moment in my life and not fully until reading your words here did it make the most sense to me. Your words are wonderful and know that they are His words to give through you to who can receive them. Be blessed and know that there is a mountain top in your future to praise from.
Keep walking in the light as it sends darkness running. Suzie
So glad to meet you, yes I believe whole heartedly with what you have said. You’ll find I try to be as transparent about my life, struggles, worries, as well as my hopes, dreams, and inspiration as I can be. I love how I learn even when I take that key to the gate of hell and let myself in to think… DUH! But even in the hell of our suffering, as David said, God is there. And so I thank God for it all… I will look Tony up, always looking for new people . Much love and don’t be quiet, keep shouting here. Peace Jacob
Jacob I sent a request for a free copy of The Calling from you and I dont think the request went through cause it was quite a while ago…..can you please send this cheap old ,fat bastard a free copy……..Mr. Patrick Parisi 103-1c Marbury Ct. Cary,, NC…….27513………Ty……..I would appreciate it greatly…..Pat
I sent you a copy via email to your email address. Let me know if the e-book is cool with you. If not let me know and I will get a paperback out to you. Much love Jacob
Jacob~ this is also ALL I have been going through. It is amazing. Everything you said here I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND. I too went through 2 days this week.. of tearing myself down.Seriously, you can go on my posts and read my comments as to what I was going through. I too said things like I hate me, I’m a horrible daughter, mother, wife.. I’m ugly I’m stupid I’m lost.. I will never understand anything I won’t make it. I”‘m fooling myself. LOL these things come out right before we BIRTH SOMETHING! OMG~ I LOVE THIS ESSAY~ Bingo Bongo! So the other day I was killing myself with HATE! Today I’m dancing in LOVE and JUBILEE. Yesterday.. I needed help getting my jaw off the floor with all the things that I was being enlightened too. MAN IT’S awesome. May I share this? You are a humble person~ glad to see we are ONE..LOL ;0) thanks for sharing and opening up to us al. Blessigns
Angie, you, me and a couple of others is seems! It’s awesome how even our downs prepare us to leep for the heights! I’m so glad the article was a blessing to you. Thank you very much for the encouragement. Much love, jacob
I still love ya, I still am thankful for ya, I still want to hear more of what you have to say. I know you are not God or perfect, and neither are any of us, and nor do we have to be.
People are going to hate on you, People are going to love on you.
You will question yourself at times, it is normal, healthy, and needed actually. Life comes with thorns, and that is a good thing. It is all good when we learn to boast only in our weaknesses and how the power of God is revealed through them. We continue to be reminded unless he gives us the ability/strength we can do absolutely nothing, this is a truly a blessing.
You could not stop doing this, you’d literally die if you stopped. You were made for this, born to do this, and will die “feeding the sheep’.
Yes, you are a Shepard–we all are–called to feed the sheep, and we are thankful for the meat you are giving us to chew on. There are always going to be critics and things happen that will make you question everything at times. This is a blessing, it keeps us and reminds us of our total dependance on the Lord, it pushes us closer to him and even our fellow man in the end. You know, ALL thing working for YOUR GOOD…? You know…
It keeps us humbled, it is a good thing. It is all working FOR YOU–:) …The critics are needed, they help you build up your muscles and to become a little less bothered by them. The more they attack you, the stronger you become, and the less they end up effecting you in the long run–This is all FOR YOU…
We all think at times we are worthless, of course this is the EGO…but soon God always reminds us of who we really are. Your life means so much and we need you, Yes, we need you, there are people who need to be challenged by your insight–Absolutely! This is why God has given it to you–To help open blind eyes and dear ears..Yes, we need you..and what is wrong with that?…
You really are such a great friend! I love the things you share, and what you wrote here meant so much to me. You are a shepherd as well indeed! I hope you have the best night ever abnd thank you for blessing me with these words. Jacob
You are so welcome Jacob. Thank you for blessing me many days and ways with ‘confirmation’ to things I’ve felt already in my heart, and ‘revelation’ to other things I just did not see AT ALL or comprehend fully.
My prayer is that God uses all of your ‘haters’ to ignite an even HOTTER flame in you to speak out and write even MORE passionately and even with more boldness.
You better not stop writing/speaking, we ALL will show up at your doorstep!! Don’t think we won’t.. Imagine that…lol!
Thanks again Jacob..:)
