Until three years ago the things I had written over the years I kept hidden away. I was worried no one would receive them. I was worried what people would say. I was like Gideon hiding the seed I had been threshing. But circumstances led me to step up regardless of my fear. It was the answer to my prayer, “Lord teach me the truth no matter what the cost, lead me to do your will, not mine.” And so circumstances forced my hand to begin this blog and now three years later I am humbled, excited, and overjoyed to see what it has done in my life and in the lives of all those who come here and share. I am stunned at how many visit here, and my heart beats faster thinking of all who I have yet to meet in the future. I thank God for the circumstances that led me to write this simple post tonight. I thank God for those very hard times of threshing, where suffering would pave the way for the harvest to come. Without it, I wouldn’t be writing you all tonight.

I see a new day rising for many, I believe now is the time our tears will be wiped away, now is our moment and now more than ever we need to let that light shine. It is no coincidence that last night the web address that I had wanted for so long became available and led me to redesign my site. It is no coincidence that I could not longer showcase a picture of “dead woods” my heart told me it was time to show the life that is taking hold of us all. Now is the time for us to Live That Life!

Don’t ever keep your “candle” under a bushel, as I did many years ago. Put it out for all to see. Without that light how will others ever find their way?

You are more than you know, you are not your past, you are not your fears for the future, you are the moment. Live for the moment, live your life, live to love, live to laugh, LIVE!

Where you are is exactly where you are meant to be, where you are going is what will set you and many others free. Please enjoy this short video I did awhile ago but never posted here. Please do subscribe if you enjoy it, share with those who may benefit from it, and of course I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you all for being the light you are to me. Jacob

The instant you give up on your dreams, the instant you give up on hope, you have chosen not to live in truth but to shackle yourself with fears yolk. The instant you stop reaching out to others, the instant you stop being a light to those around, fulfillment, joy, and purpose will be lost and your God given potential will not be found. The instant you decide to no longer forgive, in anger and resentment will become the life that you live. So choose the right path, love yourself and others and always reach for the stars. You will soon find heaven within you and the pain of yesterday will be far. The moment is yours to do what you will, the instant you choose wisely and your cup will always be filled!

    Amen!! “Life isn’t about waiting for the Storm to pass, it’s learning to Dance in the Rain”. 😉 Life is now. Faith is NOW. NOW, Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. We’ve put our faith and life on HOLD because we believed lies. I Kept waiting for the circumstances to change first, before I could start living. I had it all backwards. No more.

    I am from WV, married an awesome man from Florida to start new last June (A former Enforcer, pastoring, now for 27 years, came to WV with another international “rea” evangelist to do some tent meetings and the Lord spoke to him that we should stay here in Mullens, WV (work shown of FB John Rogers, Mullens, WV), work with the kids on drugs and adults; he is also a drug and alcohol counselor. Well we were seeing and I was knowing it is a time of releasing the mysterious God has given us, mysterious we have been writing for years but keeping for such a time………
    My youngest son Jimmy helped us move in last September, he was 33. He past on Sept.30. We continued the work, trying to keep focussed on why we are here. It is a pain you can not know and I always prayed I would not have to ever know. On July 14 we had an event titled “Brothers In Arms” Taking It Back…..a drug awareness for the county to AWAKEN the SLEEPERS. My son Wayne Johnson passed from a prescription drug overdose on July 19. I am in total numbness and shock YET dove eyed with purpose for the time has come and I know it YET all is working against the awakening being complete within me.
    I request your prayers, and or words………
    God bless you all, I love these postings. There confirmed to me that I was not crazy but hearing Father, my Father God.
    I need something, not sure wha,t but there is something I await. Yet I know that I am to continue being a VOICE.

    God just revealed to me today about Rom 5:5 that He has poured His spirit love in our hearts and after reading it open my heart to truly see that we already have is super abundented love in our hearts and we don’t need to ask for it anymore it brought such joy I just want to shout and praise God for His love in my heart which is renewing my mind.
    Love in Christ Daniel

  6. Dan G. June 26, 2012 / 1:23 AM

    Jacob…very nice you never posted this? Heh I guess its time was not yet…..Latest testimoney…Pro 20:27 The spirit of man [is] the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly. Pro 31:18 She perceiveth that her merchandise [is] good: her candle goeth not out by night. Jhn 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
    This I know! What one learns is, until God reveals the truth contained in a scripture, One first must have it revealed before the scripture can be known…You DO NOT read and understand…Jhn 1:9 [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. It would seem to me at this time if one has not the experience of his spirit ( candle) being lighted and sensing this manifestation in the belly…than maybe your candle is still seeking….I know what it is I know what happens when it gets lit…Now is it the same for all? I dont know…but two things that happened I have found in scripture….The new song and the belly being the center of this new Life…I would think that after the rebirth (the lighting of the candle) the ascension toward the mind is imminent…For no man has ascended except he who has descended….. meaning if we are dead than once we were alive and descended from the truth of who we are only to later ascend back to the glory we had with the Father from the beginning…What I have experienced is now when I talk to the Father my thoughts are centered around my belly my mind does not come into play…and why should it the soul is in need of redemption….Like you said Jacob lets bring them to the water and see who is with us…With great promise Dan G.

      Dan, you always have such amazing things to share. I love the fact that you put the LIT CANDLE and the SPIRIT of God together by connecting the dots of scripture and then posted it for all to see. You really are a blessed man to be able to see and share what you are seeing and sharing 🙂 Much love and peace to you and yours, Jacob
